    Let’s talk about Boswell’s Northwoods

    So I AM a wilderness professional. But sometimes I have to have a gentle reminder about what being Out There is about. northwoods is an English blend with some Virginia body and a bit of spice. no bite, clean to smoke. A toasted quality, smoky. This blend is representing my beloved eastern...

    Smoking on the Appalachian Trail

    So this past September, wow that long ago? I finished my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. All 2,190.1 miles of it, but who's counting? I can likely say I was one of the few pipe smokers on the AT!. Started with some Boswell tabac from PA, and up in Gaitlinsburg resupplied with the No Locals...

    Pipe Rotation

    Hate to say this, but I think I cracked the stem on my favorite pipe simply from overuse. I had just gotten started on the AT, Appalachian Trail, when I got started smoking a pipe, and brought about an ounce of tobacco, resupply on that was on occasion, so a bowl was a once a week ‘ish’ thing...

    Value of Novelty

    So as many may know, I am new to this hobby, so have been buying tobacco in as small quantities as possible. However, I do note one trend, I kind of have a tendency to really like whatever is newest for a while... before it then kind of recedes to a place on my hierarchy. Anyone else a sucker...

    New Pipe Smoking Innovation

    PROS - Can play 12 string, blues harmonica and smoke at the same time. CONS - Difficult to fit pipe cleaners into harmonica holes.

    Backpacking Blend Suggestion

    So one thing you might be able to tell from my profile picture is I spend a lot of time in the woods backpacking. I'm actually heading out next weekend, for about 40 miles or so in the PA backcountry. (definitely somewhere relatively untraveled so I can keep to social distancing guidelines). I...

    Peterson Elizabethan Mixture - My Impressions

    So still building my vocabulary around tasting notes in pipe tobaccos, as this is really the third tobacco I've tried, but here are my thoughts on this Virginia, Perique blend. So after trying out a Burley based (Haunted Bookstore) and Prince Albert blend, I wanted to try out a Virginia heavy...

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) When popping home from the grocery store, quite the travail in this fraught time, I was pleased to find a package on my stoop! So while my MM Cobbitt Elf and Prince Albert is yet to arrive, I did get my MM Ozark Hardwood and C&D Haunted...

    New Pipe Smoker

    I always thought, frankly, since I'm already a writer and English professor and tend towards the tweed blazer / leather elbow patches school of fashion, that pipe smoking was a little over the top, but as I get a bit older I care less what other people think of me! My grandfather always smoked...
