Hey, Mitch - welcome to puff! Interesting story - but you (and your uncle) weren't smoking pipe tobacco like cigarettes, were you? I mean inhaling? I worked for a while as a security guard in Arlington with a guy who would do that, chainsmoking pipe tobacco of some hideous variety (I don't recall which). Worst cough on a guy I've ever heard - he's probably dead now.
Enjoy the journey of new pipe tobaccos, and probably a few new pipes as well (see if ya don't!). There is a lot of good stuff out there, and my bet is after a few months here you'll never go back to 1Q.
Whereabouts in Texas?
