    Hello from Portland Or

    I made a post over in the cigar introduction forum as well, if posting in both is inappropriate, I apologize, and would ask a mod to remove one of my threads.

    Hello all. I'm fairly new to smoking, and mostly smoke pipe. Unfortunately I found Puff while trying To figure out why my meerschaum pipe broke (honestly I think I was just a little too rough on it, too used to my indestructible briar churchwarden), but I think that in the long run I'll probably come to see the loss of that pipe as opening a doorway to a huge pool of smoking knowledge.

    I'm an independent computer guy in southeast Portland Oregon, I'm 22, and I don't know nearly as much about smoking and tobacco as I'd like (I do have plenty of time to learn). On that subject, if anyone has suggestions of good shops in the area, I would be immensely thankful.

    My current pipe collection consists of two cheap briar pipes, and a broken meerschaum that I plan to replace in a couple days. I haven't quite decided on a tobacco that's just my 'everyday' tobacco, but my current favorite is a 'rum and maple' I get from a shop fairly near me a few ounces at a time.

    Greetings from Corvallis. As for shops in the area, of course Rich's is the biggest and most well known. They have their fans and their detracters but well worth stopping by to see for yourself.

    http://www.richscigarstore.com/

    Steve Books, the well known blender who used to work through Rich's, now has his own shop:

    House of Calabash

    I haven't been yet, but intend to stop by next time I head up that way.

    Mark, go to Powell's someday. The only place I've ever been that even remotely reminded me of the place was The Strand in NYC.

    Oh, I will. You're obligated to make the pilgrimage at least once in your life, right?

    Indeed! And when you do let me know and I'll meet you up there for dinner and a few pipe fulls.
