Just wanted to introduce myself. I found the site through a google search while I was trying to find information on pipes. My only knowledge of pipes comes from when I was younger, I can still remember watching my Grandfather and Uncle going through their pipe rituals and the smells from their pipes. I've wanted to start smoking a pipe for a while but finally got brave enough to order a couple of corn cobs and a small sampling of tobacco from pipes and cigars. I liked the forum lay out and how willing the members were to help so I thought I'd join and try to get all my information from one site. Im from a little Podunk town that's 20 miles from everywhere so I'm not eve sure if I'll be able to pick up any supplies local or I'll be picking it all up from the interwebz. Anyway, just stopping to say HI!
