    Need help!!

    Alright brothers. I'd like to set up a little bombing run for a new piper on the forum. I've received a few beaters from Bruce (Fuzzy) and I've got one ready to send out, along with a few samples. What I need is 2-3 other people to help me with samples on this. I don't have a diverse enough cellar to send this kid the tobaccos a newbie needs to go through.

    Things I need:

    Englishes (I'll send a baggie of nightcap but I wouldn't mind getting someone to send a medium Lat. blend and a mild one too.)

    Virginias (I have no straight VAs left. It doesn't need to be like FVF but maybe someone with 5-7 flakes of golden sliced?)

    VaPers (I'll be sending LBF but I'd like it if someone sent some escudo or another strictly Va & Per blend.)

    OTCs (I'm probably sending an unopened CH or PA, whichever I can find. I need someone to send captain black white label, specifically. Otherwise, any other burley blend would be helpful too)

    Aromatics (I'm sending a couple of CAO's aromatics for the heavy side. I'm also including a bit of Uni and erinmore to give him an idea of the lighter aroma-tized blends. If someone has a bit of Boswell's, that would be great!)


    This doesn't need to be a 20 man zilla llama club destructo-bomb of 20 lbs of assorted esoterica rareties. He's brand new, I just need 2-3 guys to help me send him a field sampler of what the pipe smoking world has to offer.

    Kyle, do not forget the before/after pictures and thanks for the effort to get those pipes back into use! They were going to be firewood if my better half had anything to do with them

    I can provide the Orlik Golden Sliced, plus a good sample of Eileen's Dream. Maybe a taste of some Kendal Kentucky if this gentlemen is/was a cigar smoker. I can pull the trigger at the drop of a hat, so let me know.

    I second the request for before and afters - that's where the real fun is.

    Here's a before and after of the pipe for everyone that asked.

    And thanks Terry! After I get his addy, I'll PM it to you guys. Send what you'd like! I'm sending a bit of everything, I'd just like him to have more than one example of a few different tobacco genres.

    Actually! I kinda last-minute sent a pipe along with a package to another brother.

    Was it with the KL I sent to Andrew? Or the cigars I sent to Kevin? We will have to see!!

    I don't know if you can stretch to $45, but Marty Pulver has a nice 307 System on his site for $45 at the moment.

    Sorry Kyle, I meant to post this in your WTB thread. Duh!
