    Really?

    My thread about Jordan Peterson was shut down and there wasn't even an ounce of hostility in it. Came back after a day of sledding with my boys and I can't even reply to any of the post. If you admins don't want general discussion, get rid of the general discussion section. I made it clear it...

    Jordan Peterson, anyone a fan?

    About a year ago a friend of mine introduced me to the works of Jordan Peterson, mostly through his book 12 rules to life (an antidote to chaos) and his YouTube lecture series and interviews. I won't go into his material in fear that it will become political (even though he is a clinician and...

    Garden/Farm Thread

    Let's see your garden or farm. I want to see what your all growing and how you overcome the challenges of farming. Here is my garden this year as of last week. It's been a weird summer up here in North East Pennsylvania. Really hot and then really cold rollercoaster. A little on the dry side as...

    Winter Backpacking Trip

    Took a much needed weekend trip alone out into the forest for some winter fun. I love winter Backpacking. No bugs, no thick brush to smash through, and you can drag your gear in a sled instead of carrying it. Had a great time. Enjoyed my pipes in peace next to the fire. Temps were 12 degrees F...

    New Meer Defect, Keep or Return?

    Hey guys, just received a new meer in the mail today from SmokingPipes (came super fast). I'm very happy with the pipe except that when the draft hole was drilled, it looks like they nicked the inside chamber wall, taking a very small chunk out of the wall. For 90 dollars, do you find this...

    Let's See Your Wood Stoves/Coal Stoves.

    Now that it's that cold time of year, the coal stove is fired up and keeping us warm and toasty. I know alot of you live in the countryside, and probably burn wood or coal in the winter. Let's see them! Here's my Alaskan Channing coal stoker.

    Erik stokkebye 4th Generation: Evening Flake

    Have 4oz of evening flake that will be waiting for me in the mailbox when I get home today. I'm excited to try it, and will post my thoughts and some pictures tonight. Feel free to discuss it in the meantime if anyone has already tried this new offering.

    Ropp Sale Buys.

    Anybody pick up a new ropp from the sale? It's usually not my cup of tea but I picked this churchwarden cutty up.

    7 Days...

    Placed an order with smoking pipes 7 days ago, still not here. The only update was on the 25. "Your package is in transit" No shit. This surepost crap really sucks. Does 4 noggins use sure post? I think I may switch to another merchant.

    2 Daughters Tobacco

    Ok, so I finally got around to trying 2 of their offerings after eyeing them for a good while. The amount of polarizing reviews is what kept me away until I pulled the trigger. The two blends I went with are Rimboche and Rowland Silver. First, I'm going to address the two most often seen...

    Acrid Ash

    Upon the recommendation of @chasingembers in a post awhile back, I dumped my ashes before relighting a pipe that had been sitting for a bit. This not only did the trick to get rid of bad tastes for pipes I had set down for a few hours, but also smokes that seem to start going acrid 3/4 of the...

    DARN IT!

    I like to browse tobacco on SP while on lunch at work. Today, just for fun, I clicked on G&H and, holy shit, best brown#2 was in stock. I added it to the cart, and proceeded to add a few other things to get the most out of the shipping. By the time I went to check out, (2 mins after adding best...

    A Silver Lining

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) - Bob With everything that's going on right now, it's probably safe to say attacking online tobacco sales will be put on hold for awhile. I think any legislation that hurts any kind of business after this economic catastrophi will be quickly...

    Senior Member

    So I guess now I'm a "senior" member. I guess I'll go play some bingo, wear elastic pants up to my nipples, and yell at people to get off my lawn. It's actually a dream come true.

    4th Generation 1931 Flake

    This was a new arrival last week and I can't put this stuff down! I bought the 3.5 oz tin and I wish they offered it in a pound bag like Mac barens offerings. I have seen reviewers liken this to Mac barens navy flake, but better. I haven't had their navy flake and would like to hear an opinion...

    HH Old Dark Fired... First Impressions.

    I purchased this tobacco in an attempt to come out of my comfort zone (mostly a VA/Per smoker). I was a little hesitant, my experiences in the past with Fuller and stronger blends (triple play and Jack knife plug for instance) have been good on taste, but not good on the nic hit. Upon opening...

    WDC Wellington Estate

    Got this Wellington Estate from eBay in the mail today. I've always liked the shape of these pipes, particularly that "wellington" stem. Finally found one I wanted and cleaned it up today. It was in pretty good shape, normal cleaning stuff. It has some dings here and there around the bowl, and a...

    An Unexpected Surprise

    So last night I went to smoke and was too impatient to dry out my flake on a napkin like I normally do, so I put it on top of my coal stove (I heat with coal) After 5 mins it was almost bone dry and quite warm. It was arguably the best smoke I ever had. Flavor like I never had. I have seen the...

    What Your Pipes Smell Like?

    As the title implies, I'd like to hear from other members how the empty bowls of your pipes smell, or how you feel they should smell. Id like to think I'm about average in cleaning habits. After a smoke, I run a pipe cleaner through the stem and into the bowl, "ream" the bowl with paper towel...

    Adjustomatic Stems

    Just wondering, although they are not military mounts, can adjustomatic pipes be broken down while hot? They technically are reinforced on the inside after all.
