Over the past couple of weeks I had been giving some serious consideration to getting a pipe, then the other day TommyTree asked me if i would consider a "cigars for pipe" trade. Seeing this as an excellent opportunity, not only to try another slope, about which i was curious, but also to offer a nudge down the cigar slope to someone else, I gladly accepted. The agreement was my choice of 1 of 3 pipes, all of approximately the same value, for what I considered a fair trade in cigars. I informed Tom of my choice, PM'ed my address, prepared my trade, and waited for my pipe to land... Saturday afternoon the good ol' USPS delivered my package from Tommy, a bubble mailer envelope, which was significantly larger than necessary for any of the pipes offered in the trade...
Not only did Tom send the pipe, but also a nice sampler of pipe tobaccos for me to try!

Tommy seems to be learning his Puff math quickly! It's a good thing I expected this and prepared my trade appropriately. Heads up TommyTree!
