Hi Guys,

I'm a new member here from Cornwall, UK.

Quite new to pipe smoking....I smoked roll-ups for the past umpteen years and haven't really enjoyed it for a while now....surely a pipe is a natural progression.

Well I got hold of a Peterson Tankard, broke her in nicely and I've never looked back.

I have a great relationship with my local baccy shop and I'm enjoying working my way through his stock.

I am also passionate about foraging for edible mushroom whilst taking in the beautiful views of the Cornish coast....but now I have a pipe in my pocket...the three go hand in hand (in hand).

Hey there GB, I'm in Cornwall too, not far from Bude. When you say your local tobacconist, are you talking about McGahey in Exeter? I've scoured the area and came up with precious few tobacconists in the county. Welcome to the BoB by the way Smile

Welcome to BoB, oh yes, wild mushroom foraging, a very enjoyable pastime and one with super delicious fringe benefits, marvellous mushroom soup, damn, now I'm hungry. Wink

Hey Greyson, I'm down the coast a little from you at Pentire, Newquay....My local is Johnny's Tobacconist...a great little shop run by a local lad, very friendly and not a bad range of baccy...their website doesn't do the shop justice though...shame.

I also use The Black Swan at Scarborough....very friendly and knowledgeable... absolute treasure trove...if you're ever up that way be sure to pop in.

I find that nearly all tobacconists are very friendly, this quality seems to be disappearing from our shops nowadays, I was in Falmouth a few days ago and lost count of the amount of shops I went in, had a mooch and the person at the counter had yet to lift their head up from their laptop/magazine.

Took a trip to Johnny's today, it was a bit of a trek but even so I think he's still my closest proper tobacconists. I liked the guy a lot, very friendly and helpful, and he had a good selection of pipe tobaccos, though I'd say about 90% of them were aromatics... not a major problem but I was hoping for a bit more selection for regular tobacco blends. I'd like to have stayed a bit longer and chatted to the guy but there was a big queue forming behind me so I didn't want to mess about. Good to know he's there though, if I ever needed another trip right away its 45 miles closer than Exeter in the round trip. Thanks for letting me know about him!

Hey Greyson....You're welcome....you should have let me know as I only live a few minutes walk away near Fistral.....Glad you enjoyed the place though, the guy there is open to suggestions...he got me a few tins of Pete's Sherlock Holmes in within a week.

Welcome! I too enjoy hunting the elusive fungi. In Michigan, USA though, so Morels are the game.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome....I do OK with morels here hidden among the sandy soil around the dunes but nothing on the scale of whatt you guys have....very envious.

Our morel season will start in the next three weeks or so (spring) and is very short lived but I have a dozen or so good places up my sleeve.

I posted a pic you may be interested in here

OOh, morels AND knives, RIGHT up my alley. Off to get a mushroom knife. Currently I use a soft round brush, meant for "detailing" a car, and it works well, but all in one sounds much more efficient.

Northern michigan morel hunting's been hit or miss the past decade. We've found some great spots now, but been too dry the last couple of years. Year before that was my best ever, with plentiful, including a monster as tall as my (huge) head!

Have a gander at this one by Marttiini from Fungi Perfecti

Being bright yellow it's ideal in case you put it down and "whoa...there it is"

My wife bought me Paul Stamets book "Mycelium Running"....it's fascinating.....highly recommended.
