    New guys questions bout tobacco

    Welcome Wolfie. I'm new to the briar as well. I would start with a good everyday aromatic. I did and haven't regretted it at all. I have recently started trying all kinds of "drug store" type tobacco. Captain Black White is a good one.

    Favourite pipe smoking activities

    Tommy, I like your choice, very relaxing, maybe during a sunset too with a glass of bourbon. Paddling the kayak on the lake during a fabulous sunset smoking a classic Dr. Grabow and some, H&H or CBW. :puffy:

    Favourite pipe smoking activities

    First Camping Trip of 2012

    bentmike, I thought I had posted those pics and forgot about it! (gettin' old) Your campsite is a dead ringer for my own campsite every year, right down to your camp stove and tablecloth. Ahhh the smell of the pine trees and a good pipe tobacco. The best combination this side of heaven........

    Best Type of Tobacco Pouch to have ??
