    South Korea

    I did a rotation their last year and I’m going back to the same base. So I already know about the fun and the Juicy Gurls as we called them. We actually learned how to scam them after a while haha.

    Hello Everyone - a guy with severe PAD new to these forums

    Welcome to the forum. It’s funny how many people like myself also start out the same way of buying pipes to restore and then resell them but not actually selling them.

    Yes that is what I was referring to. Yes many of the members here are avid pipe enthusiasts, but I posted this more so for those new comers here.

    What Kinds of Tobaccos Typically Come In Flake Form?

    It’s more of an observation and suggestion. Yes it was more of a personal fact, but I also know it’s not law. I have smoked English blends out of a pipe not made in England before and really enjoyed it myself.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and ways of doing things you do what works for you I do what works for me. Just because we have our own set of “rules” for our pipe smoking doesn’t mean we are not part of the pipe smokers family anymore hahaha

    That’s why I always reeder ate to new pipe smokers that you need to find your nitch in your pipe smoking and never just give up.
