    New Nording Zulu

    Guys/Gals went to the local b&m shop. My intent was to get a pocket pipe, the weather had been monsoon sweat worthy and just not conducive to smoking. I thumbed through the drawers of local estates. Even asked for help finding one because I didn't like the suggestion of smoking half a bowl...

    I should be climbing the walls

    Given the heat advisory today, I probably won't smoke till dusk. I only smoke outdoors in my spot. If it was a cig break by now I'd have started climbing the walls. The only way I can describe this feeling is its like missing coffee or a soda. Not the most pleasant feeling but I'm not angry. So...

    Lack of taste buds

    Has anyone else noticed they love smoking everything? The only solution I've come up with is I may not have delicate tasting abilities of more senior smokers. I've smoked everything from Prince Albert to Great Outdoors by Sutliff. I almost consider this a mixed blessing because lately nothing...
