    Would anybody express an area of specialits knowledge or enthusiasm for other members to know? I am sure some of the long time members already know who is who but for newbies like myself.

    I believe he's asking which of the members are pretty much recognized by their peers as being extremely knowledgeable in the areas of pipes, tobaccos, etc. In other words, which members do the others turn to for information and instruction.

    Tough question to answer in a public forum. Should be an interesting thread if it really gets going.

    Interesting question. In terms of members here, this short list [in no particular order] consists of those who've been at this hobby a long time (some for several decades) and so are IMHO definitely worth paying attention to:

    tbradsim1
    ravkesef
    foggymountain
    cigrmaster
    ejames

    Mind you - I am sure I am leaving some out. And this is not to say that I haven't learned a lot from other members here as well.

    In all seriousness though, I think it depends upon the area of expertise you are looking for. We have a bunch of guys who are quite knowledgeable on different aspects of the hobby. If I had a Barling question I would go to Sablebrush. If I had a question about whether gonorrhoea could be transmitted through the intimate sharing of corncob pipes, then cigrmaster would be the guy. It just depends on the question.

    owen, throwing the question out there for everyone, and seeing who answers works pretty well. After all, what you like is far more important than what you're 'supposed' to like.

    For the second time in the last couple of days I've come on here and got a good laugh! Thank you! I mean that.

    We have some incredible subject matter experts here.

    For an understanding of Rule 9, check with Kevin.

    If you need set straight on Latakia, get hold of Phil.

    Conlejm can help out on how to store 5 tons of tobacco in a small space.

    Several folks can advise you how to kill and skin a critter.

    You can ask me about most anything. If I don't know the answer I will make something up.

    I'm hurt ... I really thought I was becoming the "goto" guy on this one!

    As some have mentioned, it really depends upon the info you are seeking.
    It has been proven, time and again, that our group here can discuss and debate
    nearly any topic brought forth. Many opinions are expressed and it is up to you

    For a while we had some stew and chili masters too, but that thread went bye bye..

    Let me put it this way once I find out they have something to sell I no longer read their posts or trust their comments . Oh you would be surprised or ,maybe you would not .

    “There was an awful suspicion in my mind that I'd finally gone over the hump, and the worst thing about it was that I didn't feel tragic at all, but only weary, and sort of comfortably detached.”

    No one stands when I enter the room, so draw your own conclusions. But if you want to buy new pipes at
    low prices, beyond the standard recommended brands, I can steer you that way. I'm limited to briars in this
    regard. Everyone already knows about and values MM and OD cobs. I'm also one resident iconoclast and
    contrarian -- don't build cake, don't ream, and assume a great smoke is possible from a pipe at the $100,
    $70, $50 and below price level. While I can still appreciate handmade pipes costing into the thousands.
    It's a great comfort not to be among the chosen. No responsibility.

    Good question! A lot of great responses.

    I'm still fairly new to the hobby, and to this forum. But I can tell you, that if you spend some serious time on here and research your questions through the search option, read enough threads and the responses, you will see who the most knowledgeable of the members are. And, as stated above.. it depends on the question/subject.

    Without question,IMO, this the the optimal place for Pipe and Tobacco information. The answers to your questions are most likely here, you just have to find it... or if your in a hurry, just ask!

    Do not give your Great Dane/ Mastiif smoked lamb lung treats...as that "treat" makes it's way through her digestive tract, the gasses that are expelled will curl your chest hairs.

    Good to see you back Warren, it's about time!
