    Local B&Ms

    Hello from Pennsylvania

    Hello new piping friends. My history - I smoked a pipe a bit back in my university days, and was terrible at it. I just recently got the itch again and have been pipe smoking for about 3 months. I’m working on smoking cool and figuring out what tobaccos I like. So far I like everything, but I’m...
