#1
My brother-in-law has smoked a pipe since I can't remember when. He and I have spent a lot of time sitting around a fire, swapping tales, sharing our lives, talking about our wives and kids. Aaron always had his pipe. I always thought, one day I'm going to smoke a pipe too. Aaron and his family celibrate Christmas at our house, so in 2011 I decided I'd buy a pipe and an ounce of tobacco in preperation of his visit. The rest is history. from then 'till now has been a wonderfull journey. I'm always eager to learn more when it comes to pipes. And I'm ever gratefull to my brother-in-law, Aaron, for passing his hobby on to me. So...who got you started ?

I have mentioned on a number of occasions, but it was my great uncle Eddie, I have his pipe I got it after he died, his was my first pipe, everything else was of the internets and of course psf but one man here really pointed me in the right direction around a month ago and he showed me that up until then I was only playing at it, he gave me the push I needed to dip my toe in the water so to speak, I would rather not mention his name, but Im sure he knows who he is, so it is a psf member who I would say is my mentor, cheers my friend :toast:

David Lewton, formerly of The Smoke Ring on the NE side of Indianapolis, way back in 1982. God love him, he was right about dang near everything! And now... so am I.

The Internet. Everything I know is wrong.
I bypass the right and wrong thing by not knowing anything. It seems to come naturally for me.
In all honesty, Berg and DGE, and many other PSFers have helped me along the way. Even after all the help, I'm really not very good at smoking a pipe. I can't even keep anything lit, but if I had let failure stand in my way, I'd be nowhere :D Dang, my GPS went dead and who turned out the lights?
