    Welcome aboard. One of my favorite professors and mentors in college was from Haleyville, Alabama, and I have a friend of about forty years from Birmingham.

    I’m in the central Bama. So far I’ve only tried Super Value Whiskey and Capt Black original. I’m trying to find out what my high school friends Dad smoked because I always loved the room note. I think it was SWR. Also, I ordered several estate pipes and will be getting those in the mail next week and I found a Falcon with a briar bowl for $3 at a local estate sale.

    Welcome from the Birmingham area. We have a meeting of the Magic City Pipe Club at The Briary tonight. It is in Homewood. If you've never been there, it is probably one of the best pipe shops in the US, definitely one of the largest selections of tobacco and high end pipes. Even if you don't check out the club meeting, you should drop by and check out his wares. Great peoples.

    The meeting starts at 5:30, come and go as you want. I won't be there tonight, because it is planting time. But, there are some very nice folks who will be there. I will start attending again, after I get things squared away in the field.

    central Bama. ... [Monkeytown], Auburn, Opelika

    Sadly dunno, but whatever, it's gotta be better than Loachapoka**, Hope Hull, or Eclectic, right? }:)

    ** -- For reference for those from outside the yellahammer state, Loachapoka is the butt of every joke in east AL. When I lived in Opelika [an Indian name for "Big Swamp" - no joke, serious] in the late 70s, Loachapoka had a total of *1* light, a flashing yellow, at the "intersection" of a dirt road & the only paved road in town, the state highway straight through it.

    @Bill, I live between the Gump and Auburn out in the country. I did score some Prince Albert, Half & Half & Carter Hall at one of those discount tobacco stores. All less a little less than $3 a pouch.
