    Hullo from Australia

    Hi everybody,
    Just discovered this place and thought I'd better register before having a look around.
    I've been smoking pipes for only a couple of years now and should have started it long ago.
    Down here in Sydney there is a small pipe scene, we pay too much for tobacco so choices are limited. We do get a few varieties but nowhere near what is available in the USA or Europe. And about 3 times the cost. Our government taxes all tobacco heavily.

    Currently I'm smoking things like Blue Note, Peterson's connosieurs choice, and Dunhill Nightcap.

    Started off with a cheap locally made pipe which smokes really well, I still use it a lot. Then I got an unsmoked 1995 Astley off ebay along with a large IMP Meer and I'm currently waiting on a lovely Mario Grandi giant to come from the USA.

    A recent trip to the tobacco shops of Europe almost broke my heart, I must go back soon and do some shopping.

    Anyway, that's my story, thanks for having me here.

    Welcome to the fold Martin. The US is Pipe Smokers' Heaven... We from the lesser fortunate (pipe and Leaf wise) corners of the world know it, don't we?
    Happy Puffin'!!
