    Grand Adventure, Part IV: The Exodus Part 2 (The Finale)

    We set off from Pendleton, Or shaken, but not deterred. Idaho was uneventful, but we stopped early to let dad rest. We then proceded onward from I-84 to I-80. We stopped at the Echo Canyon rest area (before it closed for repairs). It was there we discovered that one of the tires on the remaining...

    Grand Adventure, Part IV: The Exodus Part 1

    Selling off all our shit was a nightmare. So stressful and time consuming. One of the things we have vowed upon arriving here is to NOT have so much stuff. One particular highlight was a guy pulling my son's never-used spey rod out of its case, not being able to get it in the case after jamming...

    Grand Adventure: Part III (Long Overdue)

    I apologize for the long delay. I left off in TN in February. While there, the 5th or 6th night, in Savannah, or Parkers Crossing, respectively, Dad and I encountered bed bugs from the motel we stayed in. It was pretty traumatic. We had to fly out with the critters. I felt pretty bad. We didn't...

    Grand Adventure: Part II (Tennessee!!!)

    So we finally got my buddy situated south of Knoxville, TN in his new home. I picked up my dad last night from the Nashville Airport. We met with a core of realtors today in Lebanon, TN and Knoxville. I am going to be in Tennessee until Friday, Feb 5th making a network of realtors around the...

    A Grand Adventure...??

    So, many of you know I am exploring the idea of moving to Tennessee. To this end, it makes sense to do a recon of the state. I have a friend who is moving to a small town outside of Knoxville. I have offered to drive one of his vehicles over for him and will have my dad fly in and we will...

    Seattle Pipe Club Pike Place

    So I was at the rollout when the Seattle Pipe Club introduced Potlatch, Deception Pass, and Pike Place. The actual Pike Place took umbrage with the unasked for use of their name and that blend only received a small run and then was goneduento copyright woes. I have 4 tins, but just had to jar...

    Almost Like Hitting the Lottery

    I am finally getting around to cataloging my cellar (thank you, BROBS), when I found i had 2 stacks of Christmas Cheer behind my Christmas Cheer stacks. I have 36 tins instead of 28. That made my day! Especially because logging all this stuff into the cellar software is painful.

    Scored Some Tobacco.

    I made a rare purchase. Got some Germains and to help support the business got a pound of PS Nougat, Optimum, and Lane RLP-4.

    RIP Grumpy Cat

    I always found the memes generated by this naturally dour appearing cat to be highly entertaining. This is the first one I ever saw and it applied very well to my situation at the time. There are hundreds of others. Gonna miss that cat. Edit: This one is awesome, too: Post your favorite...

    4,000 Posts: Not Too Shabby...

    I am honored to be a part of this gaggle of rapscallions. I am mildly surprised to find myself here. I have never really had the time to engage the forums as heavily as some, despite my desire to do so. I have learned so much here from so many of you. Others, not so much, but you have made for...

    Anyone RV? Here's Mine (Pic HEAVY)

    Hi hi! So I was wondering if anyone else is an active RV'er. My wife and I have jumped up from a, '84 Terry travel trailer to something much larger. She is a teacher and I am student teaching to become a teacher. We will use ours for short trips in the winter due the the PNW's mild weather, but...

    That Twinge...

    I was jarring up the last bit of my Tinderbox Blend, "Wafflehouse" tonight and I felt a twinge. When I got it from the store, they said that it was the last of the original blend they were going to have. Unbeknownst to me, McClelland's VBC formed the backbone of the blend and I got some of the...

    RIP to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

    Aretha has passed from pancreatic cancer. She is the quintessential diva and sang the most powerful gospel music I have ever heard. Much R E S P E C T.

    How My Wife Won the War Against PAD/TAD

    I have a cellar that will last me 4 lifetimes at the rate I smoke but have been, like many, buying tobaccos I fear may disappear. I try, really try, to focus on TAD and not PAD, but sometimes a pipe still squeaks in here and there. My wife, God Bless her, has been supportive. She buys gifts...

    HALP!! Advice Needed on Buying an RV

    My glorious wife has decided that our pickup/travel trailer setup can no longer accommodate 2 adults, 2 teens, and 4 dogs (one a pony-sized mastiff). So we now need an RV (a motorized one). I'm all for impulsive spending, but the long term effects of screwing this up are much more profound than...

    Happy Birthday to Meeee!

    So my wife is a wonderful lady. She tries to curb my spending sometimes, but in the end she supports my interests. She got me these for my birthday. The Meer is a group 1 sized pipe and perfect for a 20 minute smoke. She got the eagle because my birthday is near the 4th and 'Merica! The Grabow...
