    Just shared about three bowls with my new friend basil medows. Met him on the forum and next thing you know, we are puffing away on my front porch. He is making me a custom poker that I can't wait to smoke. Pipe smoking is the best. How many cig smokers get together and share a fag? Thanks Basil, here is to many mke bowls!

    Yes it is. I've shared a few bowls with a couple of members.

    The only valid comparison between cigs and pipes is that both involve some tobacco and a light. That's it. Even the tobacco in many cigs is hyper processed tobacco like garbage. it's like comparing cheese whiz to an aged cheddar.

    Very enjoyable evening! Sitting on the porch smoking our pipes, trying out our tobaccos and talking about everything and nothing. Just a very relaxing evening. We gotta do that again, maybe when the Poker is finished!

    It's always a special occasion to get to sit down with a fellow piper...we're so few and scattered these days. Sounds like this could become a regular event for you two...congrats!
    At the St. Louis show, I'm able to get together with pipers from all over the country...some are forum members, some are not. But the booth always has an extra chair or two, and a few open jars of tobacco for folks to sample. Those chairs are seldom empty!

    Truly was special. It was an honor to smoke with Basil. It was more of an honor to meet Basil! Now I gotta get him to show me how to make a pipe!
