Hey everyone. I've been lurking a few months as a reader but I thought it's time I joined the conversation. I started a pipe in '07 or so but put it down for some years. At the time I was mostly smoking Frog Morton blends. Imagine my dismay when I finally picked up the pipe again and found out FM was discontinued 3 months before. Now I'm puffing again and gotta say thanks to all the people here and on youtube who've helped make it a more enjoyable experience. I live in northwest Illinois and smoke when I walk the dogs, drive, or just in the evenings as I wind down. Mostly I like a Latakia-forward English blend, but I've been dipping my toes into light aromatics, and even enjoyed a bowl or two of a VaPer. At first it was like smoking cigarettes (and the lady complains that's how it smells), but some good advice from you veterans helped me tease out the sweetness and subtlety. Thanks!
