My dad was my pipe mentor, smoking pretty much daily, most of the day, while I was growing up, owning one pipe at a time and smoking only Granger. Do you have a pipe mentor? It doesn't have to be a family member. It could be a friend, or only an acquaintance who influenced you relating to pipes. It could be a celebrity who attracted you to pipe smoking, or even someone online or a Forums member. It could even be someone you saw around your home town, whose name you didn't even know, but who smoked a pipe and encouraged you in the idea. It could be several people over your life. Who were or are your pipe mentors?
