Finally we have managed to get together for our first pipe club meeting, which our "dean" - a serious pipe collector (which un be-known to me leaves a couple of streets away from me), that has brought two shoe boxes full of pipes that we examined and discussed, has suggestively called "The Lonely Sea Wolves Pipe Club". :lol: Let me tell you, it sure feels nice to know that there are other people that share your hobby which you can actually meet and with whom you have a chance to smoke and discuss the topic. We also got a chance to exchange samples of pipe tobaccos from each other, which we smoked and evaluated. The main attraction was a tin of Caledonian by A&C Petersen from the early '90. Needless to say I never had such a rare tobacco - since the early 2000s this tobacco is no longer in production. Over all, it was a wonderful experience, which we are planning to repeat on a regular basis. We have found a local pub that has a back room, and the owner lets us use it for our meeting, since he also is a pipe smoker.
