Long time lurker and a sometimes poster. Just realized I never properly introduced myself when I first joined years ago. A midwestern transplant currently living in the PNW, I've been smoking a pipe off and on for about 7 years now. Always interested in new tobaccos, techniques, and devices. I have found that pipe smoking enhances nearly all of my hobbies. I am an avid fisherman, rockhound, camper/hiker, and always have a cob in my pack. Been recently entertaining the idea of taking this hobby to another level as a collector, as I enjoy cleaning and looking at my pipes nearly as much as smoking them.
Anyway, glad to be here and hope to make some friends and have some good discussions along the way!
