Great post! Lot of good things in here--for me, one of the best is testing the draw before you light up. I don't have too much trouble packing (smoke mainly PA) but something as simple as this is a great habit to get into, especially when you're smoking a blend you don't routinely smoke. More than once I've lit up or tried to light up my usual blend, only to find my pipe is completely or halfway obstructed lol...

Good to see you again, Ruff! Always enjoy your writings, musings... ---Don

Ruffinogold, very good post, I remember you from the original PSF. Yes I see you still mention Sir Walter Aromatic, and yes I still smoke it religiously. I have tried so may tobaccos in my 10 years of pipe smoking, but always go back to SWRA. I am a little strange, I smoke the same pipe all day and often. I had 2 Hardcastle 9 mm rhodesians that lasted me 5 years, one for when I am at work, the other for home use. I just purchased 2 Rattray rhodesians a little smaller (also 9mm filter) these are working out great. So I have found my tobacco and pipe shape that suits me. Thank you as well as others who were always so patient with us newbies, Snake was awesome, as well as everyone I had contact with. Yes SWRA really is a "Chick Magnet" they always ask what it is and want to smell it rather than run from the smoke.
