New Member here from Florida, originally from Ohio. Lurking here for several months and decided to join. Started smoking at age 14 or so (now 63) as my friend from school worked in a pipe shop that his parents owned and started hanging around there after school. Smoked mostly aromatics all my life, but recently started smoking Virgina. Pretty much a briar guy, but have dabbled with meerschaum, bog oak, cherry wood and etc. Would like to try a calabash and reverse calabash as have not been there yet.
