Ok let's do this..

Rules:

Noobs and FOGS can sign up for the exchange. List will be in another post.

1) the Fog will have a pm exchange with the noob stating his likes/dislikes. The noob will initiate the trade by sending his package to the FOG.

(stops the grab and go that happens sometimes)

2) AFTER the package is received the FOG will send his package to the noob in a timely matter. A day or two. (Remember it's not a way to get rid of the crap you don't want).

Feel free to smack em around a bit. But remember it's not a contest to one up the last guy.

3) please provide feedback on a successful trade.

4) since it's hard to tell, by post count or time on the forum, who's NEW to pipes, please be honest. If you've been at it for a year or two YOU'RE NOT NEW TO PIPES. Of course exceptions will be made for guys getting back into the game..

5) YOU CAN ONLY BE A NOOB ONCE

I'm in as a fog although generally in life, I'll always be a boob....er noob.

Just to clarify, the noob can pick up something from an online retailer given certain price limitations and the fact that the noob won't have a collection as of yet, and have it sent to the fog? Then the fog return fires with a choice sampler of sorts??

You don't want a guy with ten ounces sending five out..lol

Of course it'll be up to the noob what he wants to send and how he wants to go about it.

What I'm sayin is if you send an ounce of CH and a dried up bag of pallidin. Don't expect to be blown away by the FOGS package. That's why the noobs send first. Besides the ole git and split.

I mean noobs don't need to go crazy but don't be a jaggoff either.

I wont be leaving for vacation for a little over two weeks, so as long as its before then we should be good. My fiance isnt coming with us on the trip (dad and lad trip) so if the return fire ends up overlapping while I am on my trip she will be available to make sure it arrives and gets put with the rest of my pipe tobacco.

Thanks for putting this on!

I was talking to Jack today and he brought up a good point and idea to remedy it.

Noobs don't have much in the way of tobacco.. FOGS have a crap load.
So instead of it being a tobacco only trade. Maybe the noobs have an old hobby they don't do any longer and have stuff cluttering up the garage.
IE: fishing reels, knives, golf stuff,etc..

Have the noob list with what they're wanting to trade listed next to their name. Then FOGS can volunteer to do a fair trade.

Since it's not really about the tobacco to us, it's more about roughing up a noob..I mean helping guide a person down the path in their new hobby.

It might break up the monotony of the usual trade threads.

Tell me whatcha think and be honest.

I'd be down to adjust the size of the trade to a noobs level of current commitment to pipe smoking. Understandably, you might not want to part with something nice and get stuck with a bunch of tobacco that you end up not smoking. I'm flexible.

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkThere's always the option to just trade tobacco. Hell they could just order a couple tins from smokingpipes. But I'm just trying to give another option..

I'd like to sign up as a newb. I can't think of any stuff other than tobacco to trade. I'd be down for shipping directly from a source. What I have is all posted in the recent purchase thread in the last few pages, aside from some Fillmore, Royal Yacht, Viprati, and WhiteKnight that are inbound or recently arrived, but most of those I couldn't do more than a 1/2 oz or 1/2 tin sample.

Sounds good to me. I can think of a few tins or some bulk that I want to try and go from there. I'll PM huffer33 in the morning.

Sounds like a plan to me, I wont have my portion ready until Thursday. I ordered a bunch of stuff online along with heading to my local pipe shop to pick up a few ounces but the order wont be here until Wednesday.

In regards to the trading of things other than tobacco, I think it is a good idea. I know when I first came on this forum I wanted to hop on these trades so bad but I didnt have the stock to allow me to do so. I will say though that since I didnt have the stock to join in a lot of those it has motivated me to stop my slacking and start my collections, so I now have expanded my stocks and am loving it!

Just so everyone knows, I came up with a reasonable trade, and huffer33 added a tin of McBaren Old Dark Fired that he saw from the "must have" list we have going in the pipe forum. So it's totally his fault that this got out of hand. Noobs smh

In all serious, I appreciate the generosity as well as the thoughtfulness you put into the trade. Old Dark Fired is a great addition to the collection, I've yet to try it either, so I'm really looking forward to it.

I'll post up a tracking # and get the package out tomorrow. I hope you plan to try pipe smoking for at least a few years.

I haven't had anything with a little age on it yet and have been looking around trying to find the ABF in particular so that is great to have on hand to try (sorry it kind of hid behind the Beck's). I'm going to have to look several of these mixtures up and am really looking forward to lighting them up.

I'm going to go sit out and try the Blackwoods Flake before my wife gets home.

The ftf is the only one still available(maybe) the dark flake has almost couple years on it.
The sansepolcro is one if my favorites. I had to overcome every hoarding instinct in my body to put that in a baggy..lol
