Hunting season editionFeel free to post tobaccos (no weed allowed), pipes, collections, pics of favorite combos for going /out/, pics of what you're doing with your pipe and any questions you might have.Want to get into smoking pipes without spending too much cash? Get a Missouri Meerschaum Legend corncob pipe and a pouch of either Captain Black or Half and Half tobacco, available at most drugstores. What you'll need: pipe, tobacco, lighter or matches, pipe cleaners, and either a regular old nail or a pipe tool (combination tamper, scoop, and small pick). All of these together should run you less than $25. Having trouble keeping your pipe lit? Fill it with less tobacco and smoke it slower than you think you need to, lightly tamping as needed when the smoke starts thinning out. If you're still having trouble, try filling your pipe this way:https://youtu.be/0XHYPso7TXsOld thread >>2194232Come on in and get comfy.
These threads are off topic garbage and mods should have never allowed them. You talk more about tobacco than going out which has nothing to do with the board topic.
>>2220904>oh nooo, one thread where people stick to themselves instead of 14 knife threads
>>2220904>a knife thread died for thisGood.
Red Setter is definitely next dag
>>2220900carved a pipe yesterday
>>2220904Fuck off retard
>>2220953Looks good! How’d you do it?
>>2220956oak branch a knife and a brace and bit. carve to shape, then drill holes where needed
>>2220952consider the Weimaraner, one of the most beautiful and easy to train and smart sport hunting dogs ive ever encountered, plus their eye color is bright blue as puppies but then turn to a more subdued gray have a friend who breeds them, fantastic hunting and farming dogs
>>2220960Meh. I’m good. Not a fan of dogs with color dilutions and all the neurological issues that come with it. I’ve already had a GSP in the past and continental breeds just kind of live in 3rd or 4th gear all day. Pointers and setters go from neutral to 5th lol. My current boy Hank. Not a fan of my pipe.
>>2220974just wanted to shed some light on a pretty unknown breed.give Hank a good head scratch, he seems like a good man
>>2220977Appreciate it. Weims are pretty dogs just not my preference.
Anyone else here use nasal snuff?
>>2221009Not me, but there was a bit of discussion in the last thread, so they're definitely around.
Can someone recommend me a good pouch? I'm looking for something durable and relatively small that'll hold a pipe, tools, and some tobacco.
replying to the previous thread, yes i have made my own pipe, made my own corncob from some corn I grew in my garden and dried, picked it hollow with a stick or something and drilled a hole in the side with a basic drill. the stem was the hard part: used a wood window dowell, tried to burn through it with a piece of wire I heated until glowing, ultimately resorted to using a very long drill bit. also made a few wood pipes after that similar to what you posted but none were very good
Thoughts on churchwarden pipes?
>>2221242got a cheap one, BBK i think, the whole "cooling the smoke through the stem" thing didnt really work for me, not to say it cant be a thing on more expensive models, but its just annoying to clean and carryguess im more of a clencher, Stubby Poker Gang rise up
I think I’m in love guys
Pic of me smoking a pipe during a fishing trip this past weekendSince it's hunting season edition: I'm getting my hiring and firearms licenses in a couple weeksIsn't it kind of dumb to smoke a pipe while actively hunting or is that just for big game like deer and elk
>>2221242they're a meme unless they're made of clay. the claim that they cool the smoke is repeated by newbies who don't understand physics, to other newbies who don't understand physics.in clay (or meerschaum in the case of saxaphone pipes) they do help dry the smoke as the clay and meerschaum (which is actually a type of clay) are extremely porous and suck up moisture like a sponge. but vulcanite and lucite are not porous, will not suck up moisture from the smoke, and are thermal insulators to boot.they're also clumsy as fuck. they're ok for when you're reading a book and can rest the bowl on your chair or table but that's about it. stanwell makes a churchwarden that comes with both long and short stems, invariably they get smoked once or twice with the long stem before getting a permanent switch to the short stem.
>>2221271no, for some reason animals - even big game - don't really associate the smell of pipe smoke with humans. meanwhile it helps cover up your own scent.
>>2221280No way! That's pretty cool and great to knowThanks for the heads up
>>2221271have fun with your future mouth cancer
>>2221288I think you might be in the wrong thread
>>2221288Sunshine gives you cancer.
>>2221242They're fantastic for smoking and reading in your garden. If you go out and smoke, not so much. Like others have said, they don't cool the smoke, that's a common misconception. >>2221279Why would you rest the bowl on something? You hold the bowl in one hand and the book in the other.
>>2221288And increased life expectancy over both the cigarette smoking and nonsmoking population. Also, added protection from the coof.
>>2221255I'm a bulldog fan, but the Rhodesian does something>>2221048I'm interested in this too. Pocket-bleb>>2221271Heard game dont recognise the scent but hunting dogs might, no idea if its valid
>>2221255is a good pipe
>>2221383because I read actual books and hold them with both hands.
>>2221288everything gives you cancer.
>>2221288Have fun with your future anal cancer from getting pounded in the ass by hundreds of diseased cocks.
>>2220960The weims I've seen have been pretty ugly desu, nothing on the beauty of a setter. I recently purchased a black lab pup due to anything else going to cost 3k more. Would highly recommend one, she's going to be a good out doggo.
>>2221602>The weims I've seen have been pretty ugly desuin the eye of the bee holder i guess, labs are great
>>2221602>worried about price>purchased>not adopting
>>2221618I already have a rescue, wanted a pup this time. Call me a heeb but paying 3k more just for papers and a less healthy dog doesn't make sense to me
anyone just gone bonkers and bought a bunch of different tobacco? ive got around 250 burning a hole in my pocket
>>2221602you can find cheap bird dog litters on gundogcentral. Hank only cost me $500 and he’s great.
>>2221658Yeah but I don’t recommend it unless you have some freezer space to keep it fresh. Stale baccy sucks.
>>2221658just placed an order for ~6 lbs, which will be joining ~90 lbs already in the closet.
>>2221658>>2221673I buy mine by the tin and cellar it in the tin. It will last ages in the vacuum sealed tins. Anything else like bulk goes in a mason jar with a Tattler rubber ring lid. All sizes of jar to suit your needs. I have about 40 different types but most are 1 or 2 tins deep. If I like something it won't get a chance to dry out. I carry 50ml centrifuge tubes in my outdoor packs. Cheap and airtight.
>>2221288Your post already is cancer.
The local pipe shop has a basket of churchwarden pipes with the name Rigoletto stamped on them, presumably ones that didn't pass visual inspection as a few of them have minor scuffs and the like. I can't seem to find any real information on the manufacturer online and none of the sites I've checked look like they carry new Rigoletto churchwardens.I kind of like how they look and they're priced pretty reasonably. Has anyone had any experience with this brand?
>>2221896Inspect the inside of the bowl. Make sure the draft meets the bottom about right, and you should e golden. Even cheap pipes can be excellent smokers.
>>2221477>handlet detectedHow embarrassing.
>>2222176>he only reads dr seussonce you get out of grade school you'll realize it's possible to become actually literate, and you too can read real books with hundreds or even thousands of pages.
>>2222377>>2222176>>2221477>>2221279>>2221383Shut the fuck up already. Coffee and now how to hold a damned book? Get back to pipes.
How do I hold a pipe, coffee, and a book at the same time? And, yes, I do hold my coffee with two hands.
>>2222377>FauciLol, I remember one of my econ textbooks was written by Bernanke, the swine. Can you really not one-hand a textbook? You use your hand to keep it tipped up and turn the pages, and a knee/thigh to work the other side. Filthy casul.
>>2222496This time it's about how to hold a book while smoking a pipe, so we're making progress.
>>2222503You don't understand..He reads BOTH VOLUMES simultaneously
>>2222506>>2222505>>2222503>>2222501Yeah, but I spilled cream AND sugar all over my open books while trying to hold my pipe with the toes on one foot, the mug with the toes on the other foot, because I needed both hands to hold the massive volumes necessary to satisfy my superior brain.
>>2222511Do what I do and use two pipes simultaneously as well. You have a back up in-case the other falters or goes out when you pour another cup of covfefe or get a new book because you read the Teddy Roosevelt way, only needing every other line- right?You have to be efficient here.
>>2222517>use two pipes simultaneouslyOh shit, I just had an epiphany. What if you want to smoke two different blends at once with ease and convenience? I've figured out a solution.Brb, going to the patent office, then looking up which yacht I'm going to buy with my millions.
>>2222763He looks like he's compensating for something.
>>2221009I've wanted to try, any brands you'd recommend?Anything I should know going in?
>>2221255>>2221415Nice Rhodesians. For some reason they always make me want to smoke Lakelands.
>>2221271Nice. Been meaning to pick up a small game permit, mostly as justification to wander around the woods with my bow, and if I bag some rabbits or squirrels, all the better. Need to find an nice Hill style longbow for max American tradness though. And smoke a pipe while doing so, obviously.
started on another pipe, this one is going to be a churchwarden.
>>2223823shit wrong thread meant for /diy/
>>2223825It's cool, it fits here too. You making the stem or are you fitting a premade one to it?
>>2223845going for a hike soon to look for river cane for the stem
>>2220910Cool lighter. What is it?
Brother bought these for my birthday. Anyone have experience with either of these blends?
>>2224149IM Corona Old Boy. It's the king of expensive Jap pipe lighters, been around forever. If you want a cheaper variant also made in glorious Nippon, consider the Kiribi.
>>2224151No, but I just ordered some Autumn Evening myself. I'm not typically an aromatic smoker, but I'm looking forward to trying it.
Goddamit I know $31 is a lot to spend for a cob but this MM Kingston Judge is pretty spiffy. Talk me /out/ of it bros.
>>2224496You should probably jump on it, that stem looks to be a much higher quality than they normally offer.
>>2224496get it. do it now.
>>2224517>>2224563LOL you guys were supposed to talk me out of it. I just ordered one.
>>2224151Haven't tried them as they aren't available in my country, but I have heard good things. Check them out over at the tobaccoreviews site, usually a lot of feedback there.
>>2224496I'm not much of a fan of corn cob pipes because they always look too hillbilly for me, but this one strikes the right balance for it to just come across as novel and quirky and less snobby than regular pipes.
How long does a single bowl usually last you guys when smoking?I can smoke mine well over an hour, usually I put it down because I no longer enjoy it after that much time. It's not a particularly big pipe either. I'm puzzled cause I read in other places their pipe is finished after 20 to 30 minutes.
>>2224745It depends on bowl size and tobacco being smoked. Most of mine take 30-40 minutes.
>>2224745Up to an hour but I very rarely smoke an entire bowl in one sitting. I usually get about 3 separate 10 - 20 minute sittings over the course of a day per bowl.
>>2224754>I usually get about 3 separate 10 - 20 minute sittings over the course of a day per bowl.Hmmm maybe I should give that a try. How do you store the pipe when going about your day?
>>2224745In my MM Legend a full bowl lasts a little over an hour I'd say.
>>222474540-60 minutes, usually. Longest I ever did was just over 3 hours.
>>2224757You can use one of those clip on wind screens as a cap, I've even seen some guys use a cork. Some Savinelli models even come with a matching wood cap.
>>2224437>>2224676I had the maple one yesterday. Super smooth with a nice flavor. Smoke also isn't very heavy which is nice because when it is my mouth feels weird for the rest of the day.
>tfw another windcap brokeIs there anyone that makes one that lasts more then a year?
>>2225758You. Make your own, it'll be better and bring you more pleasure to use something you created with your own hands.
Does anyone of you have any experience with Falcon pipes? They really look like they'd be easy to fit in any pocket, perfect for /out/ing.
>>2225917I've heard two ends of opinions:People who have tried them and love themPeople who have tried them and don't care for themUsually it's the same features giving these two often polarized opinions. I've heard, even from people who don't like them so much, that they generally smoke well.
>>2225917If you like the idea of a Falcon, but want something a little nicer, you can also consider the H. Wiebe Radiator pipes. I'm not entirely sure I like the aesthetic, but I can appreciate the engineering. I might get one eventually.
>>2221288Youll die of corona before i get cancer, faggoid
All these spics selling nicotiana rustica are just ripping off dumb western hippies, not one can show you pics of their crops, only regular tobacco field stock photos.It looks like 100 percent of those rustica rope tobaccos / mapacho logs you see coming from south america are just fucking n. Tabacum labeled as rusticaLeaf only is the only supplier of rustica and their leaf is weak due to being suncured. Mac baren rustica is sun cured, steamed, and blended to hell with weak light tabcum varietals to the point its only like 2.5 % nicotine, and who knows how many of the other good alkaloids you lose.i just want to enjoy some sacred tobacco and contact the nicotine entitities
>>2226131It’s pretty potent stuff anon. I wouldn’t recommend it for casually tripping but if you’re truly interested in N. rustica you can easily grow it. Most Native American elders in tribal centers would be willing to help you if you’re nice and give you free seeds, but don’t ask for tobacco, or they’ll just give you a pinch of Gambler’s. Listen to every bit of advice they give you and leave more tobacco out in nature than you’ll smoke. Nature will be a lot more chill with you if you’re sincere about it.>t. Nativefag
>>2226280>leave more tobacco out in nature than you’ll smoke. Nature will be a lot more chill with you if you’re sincere about it.I hate prairie niggers so fucking much. Gtfo with your noble savage in tune with nature spirits bullshit.
newfag hereJust bought a pipe.Breaking it in properly is a thought.Also tongue bite.Any links to good tips and info?
>>2226380T. Hasnt met the great god Nick o' Teen
>>2226390Look up muttnchop piper on jewtube. He's got a whole series of beginning videos, and they're all pretty comfy too.
>>2226380That anon was being nice, the grandfather spirit is gonna woop your ass some day
>>2226444Wherever I am, I must also colonize.
Just bought a cob pipe and pounds and pounds of tobacco because I'm not going to let the coming bullshit keep me from feeding the nicotine habit. Comfy thread here
>>2226465Wwelcome home, brother. I've got about 5 lbs socked away. Stay comfy
>>2225917I have a Falcon. Tried it, didn’t care much for it.They have all of the gurgling and heat issues of a metal pipe, with all of the cleaning issues of a briar. The mouthpiece not being removable on mine didn’t help either. If you’re in a place with cold, wet winters like the PNW or northern England, the super humid weather can warp a wooden pipe. A Falcon won’t warp, that’s what makes it great. If you don’t have those problems, it’s a solution without a problem at that point.
>>2226390Breaking in a wooden pipe is a meme. Just smoke the fucker. Even if you suck at it, it will be able to take it. They’re made of wood, not glass. I’ve got pipes that are over 100 years old and are still fine. Just keep them fairly clean and don’t let the cake build up too much, and they’ll stay good for a LONG time. >pic related, somebody’s /out/ pipe from the 1900-1910s.
>>2226380I dunno what else you want me to do man. It’s just how I was taught. >>2226419Thanks man. Good tip with tobacco plants is to pinch off the flowers as soon as they come, preferably before they even bloom. They’ll attract moths which pollinate them and they’ll lay their eggs on them too. Manduca sexta hornworms can devastate tobacco but are also one of their main pollinators. After tobacco is pollinated they’ll create about 20-30 seed pods with around 300 seeds in each one. Though N. rustica isn’t normally grown for its yields or flavor so your chances of a plant are around 12-20% germination rate. After seed pods are made they will die since tobacco is not a perennial plant, and depends on its seeds to create the next generation.>picrel.jpg>>2226444Checked
>>2226506You were taught primitive bullshit. However, you're also doing damn fine work keeping tobacco cultivation alive. Did you get your rustica seeds online, or does it grow naturally where you live? I'm thinking of growing a plant or two in addition to my usual Virginia/burley/Havana, and using it as a filler to boost nicotine content. I've heard it doesn't taste like much, flavor-wise?
>>2226531It tastes like ass, I wouldn’t blend it because it’ll overpower whatever you’ve got. Plus decent tobaccos that (you) would be accustomed to are actually sun and fire or flue cured from what I learned, so it imparts a different flavor profile altogether. It mostly comes down to soil and how you cure it. I just do it the way my grandfather taught me.
Got back from a trip to the Grand Canyon with my bros. Brought my new Mountaineer with me and had a great time with it. We demolished a tin of Sutliff Eastfarthing so I'm working through a bag of Green Dragon until I get a new can in.
>>2226506What is your favorite native tobacco strain anon? Do you know the origin of what you grow? Many tribes seem to have made many landrace strains of nicotiana rustica and other species. Besides Choctaw perique plants, and alaskan quadrivalis strains, it seems like every tribe made their own special breed of nicotiana rustica suited to their taste and enviroment. Im trying to decide right now as to whether i should grow mohawk rustica plants, aztec rusticas, hopi rusticas... or one of the many more choicesTldr what tribe has the best smoke, if you have any oppinion
>>2226564>I just do it the way my grandfather taught me.
>>2226461Try recolonizing your own cities first before being rude to a random native dude on 4chan giving good hobby adviceChances are that he almost certainly has more in common with you spiritually then the average urbanite bugman.
>>2226280If you don’t pass the blood quantum you aren’t native and after five generations of rez kike women fucking truckers so they can smoke meth and huff gasoline there are no real injuns left. Just Mexicans LARPing as injuns.
>>2226818It’s impossible to say. It’s quite literally a tradition passed down by individual tribe and even more so with the (new to us) concept of family nucleation, so it could quite literally be different depending on who you talk to. I know a handful of people who like blending with kinnikinnick or sumac berries but it still doesn’t improve the flavor if you’re using rustica. My best results come from peatier soil with a bit of riverbed sand mixed in to the point where you’ve got a rich black dirt. No need to add (((MiracleGro))) or whatever they sell at Walmart. Just water and good sunlight.>>2226825>teach white man how to grow tobacco AGAIN>still is an ungrateful faggot who calls me a larperAh just like the good ol’ days.
>>2224496That's a good looking pipe. I've had my eye on the Carolina Gent l482gjately.
>>2221673>freezer spaceplease do not do this. put that shit in jars like a normal person.
Anyone got a recommendation for a pipe brand if I have like 300€ to blow? I found a Caminetto I like who used to be known for smoking dry and cool. However then I read up on it and heard the company broke apart in the 80s so I have literally 0 idea about their quality these days. I'm open for other brands and countries for sure, no preference, only looking for a cool and dry smoke as I tend to run my pipes fairly hot even when smoking slow as fuck.>>2221673>>2226962I got a humidor from my father in law as a wedding gift
>>2226999I've got these little sponges you put in with the jars.
>>2226980Well, at least you only ruined a $5 cob. Now get out.
>>2227020Usually I toss hippies down an abandoned mine shaft, keeps everything nice and clean
>>2227003How do you hydrate yours? Some people recommend distilled or RO water, and some cigar folks mentioned a water and PG mix.
I just put them in water. Nothing fancy.
>>2227021>>2226994>hippyYou sound like a boomer faggot.
>>2227021As an abandoned mine enthusiast, please stop. Finding a disgusting hippie stinking up the deep with the herbal Jew would completely ruin the trip.
>>2227150Smoke only in abandoned mines. Got it.
>>2227080you sound like a hippy
>>2227154I made sure to bring my churchwarden when I went into my first mine. Smoking deep inside a mountain is peak comfy, 11/10 would highly recommend.
what about cigars?anyone here got recs for a newfag cigar guy?
>>2227337get a pipe
>>2226914Ignore that white nigger, mean spirited racists always have and always will be cringe
>>2227020With your mothers mouth
>>2227337Cigars are far more expensive and far less flavorfull, abandon that peasant habit and get a pipe
>>2227337Cigars are less gears for /out/ than pipes are, and the selection of flavors not nearly as wide as you can get with a pipe. Most every cigar is just variations on the same theme and flavor profile. But that said, there are some good tasting variations. A Montecristo No. 2 is a a good place to start. If that’s a little spendy, an Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8 Madurois a little less spectacular but still good, and at less than half the price.
>>2227150>>2227158>>2227161>>2227292/pol/ virgins who never got past their south park phase and think smoking a tobacco pipe is cool. the 4chan version of a redditor.
>>2227472STFU SNIFF! I GOT THE FUCKERIN MY SIGHT!
>>2227472ok find another thread then hippy
>>2227472Like anyone here gives a fuck what a smelly hippy thinks.
>>2227361>that picBack then, the only racial diversity they really had in German was Jews. Pretty sure Hitler wouldn't have been fawning over drunk injuns if they were in his country calling him a racist colonizer and demanding gibs.
>>2227676There were a shit load of nigs and mulattos in France and Hitler had them sterilized, deported, etc
Get back on topic, lads.Ignore /pol/ bait tier shitposting.
>>2226957I've always liked the looks of the Charles Town Cobbler, the Carolina Gent is cool but I don't like stubby pipes. I like to clench while I'm fishing and smoke gets in my eyes if the pipe is too short.
My pipe came in, it has a nasty ash smell to it, it even lingers when I light up a bowl
>>2226999>Anyone got a recommendation for a pipe brand if I have like 300€ to blow??
>>2227760fresh pipes are often coated in a way that is supposed to help you break it in more quickly. That might be it.
>>2226999What kind of pipe are you after? My most expensive pipe was a Butz-Choquin (who don't exist anymore, sadly) gourd calabash. My best-smoking pipe by far, but obviously not for going /out/. I personally don't see the point in spending more than $150-200 on a briar pipe, there's no advantage gained by going higher, unless you really care about anesthetics more than money.
>>2220960Every Weim I've ever seen was fucking nuts.
My dad found this Medico churchwarden in an antique shop, it’s only been used a little bit, nothing a bit of cleaning won’t fix. Any of you guys have experience with Medico pipes? Are there any fakes out there I should be aware of?
>>2227238Based and dwarfpilled. What's your favorite tobacco for delving too greedily and too deep?
Can anyone shill me some good tins? I’m running out of Frog Morton’s cellar.
>>2227929I've never tried any of the Frog Morton stuff, but I've heard that Sutliff Eastfarthing is fairly similar. It's one of my personal favorites as it's an aromatic that actually tastes really good.
>>2227919My first time, I took Three Nuns just to top off the experience (not that the current blend is the same as what Tolkien smoked, but whatever). But being a shrewd judge, my go-to is OGS. And if I'm feeling like an aromatic, a 50:50 mix of Lane BCA and 1Q.
>>2227939Frog Morton’s is gone forever, unfortunately. A shame, it was a very pleasant latakia too.
former cigarette smoker hererecommend something with a bold body that lies on the sweet side of things.Also what pipe would you recommend for a beginner on pipe smoking?
>>2227983Dr Grabow’s is cheap and readily available at most drugstores. It’s not great quality but it’s briar with removable stem and pre-seasoned bowl. It’s not caked yet properly though and will appreciate hearty smokes the first few times. Make sure to use your finger to rub the ash into the bowl after you dump out the large clumps to help cake it and carbonize it further the next time you smoke. This will insulate your bowl and help keep more heat in your smoke so you don’t have to relight it more often. Best way to light is with a butane lighter, though purists tend to prefer matches that have burnt for at least a second to loss the phosphorous taste, and further still people who will swear by cedar spliffs. It really comes down to how fancy do you fancy your smoke. Cheap tobacco was how I started so I could know what flavor profiles I like. There’s also some good suggestions in this thread so far, and most tins are only $10-15 online.
>>2227983You should try an aromatic (1Q and BCA mixed together is my favorite so far), a VaPer (Orlik Golden Sliced), and an English (Nightcap), just to introduce yourself to the most common categories. And get a corncob first, they're cheap and good to learn on until you get a briar.Also, pic related seems to be popular among cigarette smokers, haven't tried it yet so I don't know. Other anons can chime in here.
>>2227990Oh yeah corncobs are good cheap pipes. The bowls get a little hot for my taste but they’re fun.
>>2227983Get a Missouri Meerschaum corncob. You'll pay like $10 and you can beat the shit out of it while you figure your technique out. They even come in churchwarden styles if you wanna pretend to be a Hobbit. A nice Virginia blend should give you a bit of sweetness. The Country Squire's Green Dragon blend is my current favorite,
>>2227645I love partial rusticated pipes, wish carvers made more of them.
>>2227983Get a nicer Missouri Meerschaum cob with a hardwood plug, and start with a Virginia Perique tobacco. Aromatics with a sweetened casing take more skill to smoke properly and they will just burn your tongue unless you've got some experience. I like Cornell and Diehl Bayou Morning for a VaPer
>>2227732>stubbyIt's strange, the examples I've seen on youtube, etc. seem a fair bit longer than the website pic.
>>2227988>butane lighterMake sure it's soft flame, those jet lighters will wreck your pipe. Also, corncob pipes make great starters, and don't cost much if you funs2drck it up doing noob shit.
>>2228029I agree with that. I use a candlestick lighter when home, and a butane one when /out/.
>>2228022>>2228005>>2227990>>2227988thanks a lot for the suggestion frens
I was at a street fair and a guy was selling herbal blends that he was smoking out of a corncob. I think he mentioned it had mullein, skullcap, lavender, and some kind of mint in it.Has anyone ever tried blends like these? Is it just a hippie meme that'll wreck a pipe?
>>2228068They are mostly a meme - at least the ones that people sell for ridiculous prices these days. A lot of them also seem to just throw a shitload of smokeable plants together into a nightmare of competing flavor and texture (though the example you gave isn't a particularly bad offender there).Without psychoactives or nicotine there isn't really much point in these for a lot of people, except perhaps as a cessation aid.That said, there is enjoyment to be had from herbal blends if you just plain like the taste/smell - or even for mixing with tobacco as is sometimes done. With a little research, it's easy to make your own for a lot cheaper than the premade shit. If you're going to try it, definitely get a dedicated cob for the experiment though.

Why do I have birdsed in my pocket
I wish I could smoke a pipe again so much but apparently I have a bowel disease that makes nicotine forbidden.
>>2228438You could try some tobacco-free kinnikinnick-style blends made of stuff like bearberry with a few herbs in it.
>>2228438Which kind? Also, I highly doubt that a pipe now and then is going to do a damn thing to your intestines.
>>2228438dont trust these stupid kike doctors, your ancestors smoked plentyWorst case, smoke other herbs, tea, amanita mushroom caps, certain lotus flowers, all of these will give you a worthwhile buzz
>>2227772>DUDE WEED: the post about TolkienSo you really think Tolkien’s “pipe weed” was marijuana because he typed the word “weed” and you can’t think of any other possible meanings for that term?Let’s look at what Tolkien himself actually said in his writings:> “There is another astonishing thing about Hobbits of old that must be mentioned, an astonishing habit: >they imbibed or inhaled, through pipes of clay or wood, the smoke of the burning leaves of a herb, which they called pipe-weed or leaf, a variety probably of Nicotiana. >A great deal of mystery surrounds the origin of this particular custom, or ‘art’ as the Hobbits preferred to call it.”-Lord of the Rings, Prologue, part 2: “Concerning Pipe Weed”Nicotiana=tobacco, or something closely related to it. Which makes sense, since Tolkien was an avid pipe smoker. TLDR: “pipe weed” is, canonically, tobacco, you’re just another stupid fucking stoner whose whole life revolves around marijuana, and life goes on without you, just as we all suspected.
What’s your favorite stuff to break your new pipe in? I’m getting back into it, but my current stuff is a little old.>MTV45
>>2229471Just whatever I feel like smoking. So mostly English and American blends.

>>2227803mostly looking for something that smokes dry and cool, briarwood preferred, although I could see myself going for a meerschaum. However with the multitude of manufacturers and meerschaum suppliers that's a whole different beast I am not sure I want to get into yet.
>>2229572looks like Porsche
>>2229815Clay meerschaum would be nice and dry, but there was an anon who posted these in the last thread and said they were good for reducing moisture and tongue bite. Longer stem would help cool it too I’d imagine.
>>2229888I love my pipe that is made to take them under the bowl.
>>2229958How are they in other pipes?

>>2224151Autumn evening is great. I look forward to AE ‘season’ coming around every year. I just smoked my first bowl of it last weekend.

>>2227966I still have two unopened tins of Frog Morton (one original one On the Bayou). I smoked through the tins I had opened. I realllllly want to crack that Frog Morton, but I know that once it’s gone, that’s it. How long can I hold out?
how often do you guys smoke your pipe?
>>2229859>it’s a K&BNothing of value was lost.
>>2230132I wouldn't wait too long. Aging is cool, but there's definitely diminishing returns past a certain point.
>>2230132I’m still working through FM Cellar myself. I’m gonna miss it when it’s gone. I’d say share it with someone who’d appreciate it as much as you do and it’ll make that smoke all the more pleasing. >>2230136
>>2230136Sorry, my finger slipped and gave you a (you). But I smoke mine every month or so at least if I can help it. I still want to go hiking with some other guys and enjoy a smoke with them someday.
>>2230136got in the habit of smoking pretty much daily. Since I started smoking pipe last year it's my favourite hobby I picked up. Experimenting with different pipes, different flavours different ways to pack the tobacco, different ways to breathe, trying to reduce tongue bite.It's a pretty deep and skilful hobby.
>>2229979They are nice in other pipes as well. Keeping the tobacco above the base of the bowl makes it really easy to smoke 100% of the bowl.It's dry and cooler than normal.I will say it can be annoying if a smaller clay slips into the stem and blocks it a bit.
>>2230234How often do you replace them?
>>2230266every time in a pipe not made for them.Every 2-3 in the pipe that is made for them.It's just not worth the effort to get the ash out of the pipe and keep them in the bottom of a regular pipe.You are supposed to replace them every time.On another note I'm annoyed my local tobacco shop, where I bought the damn pipe, doesn't stock the rocks.
Where can i find a good looling skull pipeAll the new prpduction ones ive seen look goofy

>>2229888I remembered that I bought a box of pic related a year ago when I first picked up pipe smoking. Of course back then I was so much a rookie that they didn't do much for me so I kinda forgot about them.But now with more expertise they basically fixed all my tongue burn, I just had the best smoke of my life. I'll see if I still need them when I have a better quality pipe later this week, but for now it's all I was looking for.
>>2230764forgot muh pic
>>2222501Is this you?
>>2221009Yes, snuff user here. Have yet to try a lot of the Bernard Snuffs, but the one I have tried (Kownoer) is very pleasant>>2229569Is altbayrischer any good? In my cart on Toque>>2223437Toque snuffs are for the most part beginner friendly. They've got a deal going where you can try 10 tins worth of snuff (at 10g each) for the price of 9. It's a fantastic deal. Currently sniffing Berwick Brown and Quit, both very nice.Don't get discouraged if you can't seem to get it into your nose without drip. Plenty of practice and different methods are the key. I found this little coffee stir stick helps me to take finer snuffs much easier than pinching. It's all relative, and whatever works for you is how to do itPardon the mobile post
>>2231039Every time I try snuff I begin sneezing and it clogs my nose, causing an urge to blow my nose to clear it. Am I doing anything wrong? Thank you.
>>2231110Sneezing is completely normal. Don't worry about that partSome snuffs will clog you up easier than others. If we're talking schmalzers/mentholated, some folks just generally have a tough time with those clogging the airways. If we're talking an SP or a scotch snuff, you're sniffing waaaaaaay too hard then. Act like you're smelling flowers, only ever so lightly. Coarser snuffs are more forgiving than fine. Just experiment and see what makes your nose less clogged/less throat drip. Hope that helps! What are you sniffing, by the way?

What's the point of expensive pipes? This Dunhill is fucking $1300. How is it *that* much better of a smoke than a $30 generic briar or even a $3 corncob? I feel like pipes hit the point of diminishing returns at the $30-50 range and everything after that is mostly just paying for a status symbol.I unashamedly buy pipes for the carvings and art. A pipe is a pipe is a pipe, the differences in the smoking experience just seem very petty to me. This faggot >>2230101 has the right idea way more than any of you mouth breathers who would buy a Dunhill.If your pipe is worth more than my car you have autism
>>2231229Probably walking a lot
What tobacco should a new smoker try? and does the shape of the pipe really matter for what type of tobacco you use or is that just bullshit?
>>2231317For a new smoker stay away from aromatics. They are more difficult to smoke and will bite your tongue. Start with maybe a mild English or a Virgina-Perique (VaPer). You don't need to worry about pipe shape at this point, you just need to figure out what kind of tobacco you like and how to pack a proper bowl. Don't get a pipe that's too small to start out with though. Either a Missouri Meerschaum cob (cheap) or an entry-level briar (say $50 for something decent) will be fine.
>>2230093Lmao cheers mate
>>2229522Everyone knows your preferred thing to smoke is cock.
>>2231039The (old bavarian style):translated snuff you asked about is pretty good. It is very similar to the Brazil Double fermented flagship snuff but a lot more mild scent and a bit dryer.I recommend trying both.Have not tried any toque yet. None of their flavors really caught my interest, but maybe on next order.
>>2231201Find one with bells and maybe flashing lights in case the smell alone does not chase away all the game animals.
>>2231291It is the same concept as any luxury item... is this beyond your comprehension!?Also, are you saying your car cost less than $1300?
>>2231317Start with Prince Albert... seriously, it is cheap, easy to smoke and surprisingly good even when you get into the expensive stuff. When it gets a bit boring, try some balkan/english stuff or some flavored stuff.
>>2231294Then id say a shorter bent style pipe is best as it will bounce less as you walk, one thing you may consider is looking for a "sitter" one with a flat bottom so you can easily set it down if you need toAlthough a pipestand is pretty easy to make, just a rivet or something to hold a strip of leather together
>>2231409>is this beyond your comprehensionYes, I don't understand Rolexes either. In some big ticket items (guns and computers for example) a high end product can cost 10x the price of a low end product and that cost can actually be somewhat justified by the improved quality and performance. The computer is faster, the gun is more ergonomic and accurate, etc. You do still pay for desirable brands, but the real world benefits are more significant--you hit the point of diminishing returns later. For example, a Sig Sauer pistol is better than a Hipoint pistol, in a much more real way than a Rolex is better than a watch from Walmart, or--I believe--than a Dunhill is better than a MM.And I drive an '88 Cherokee with 325k miles so yes
>>2231418Expensive pipes, watches, etc. are for people who can afford them. Why do you care?
>>2231420Curiosity. I just wonder how much of the difference is real (even if minor) and how much is perceived or for status. I can't understand how the difference between pipes that are very similar in shape and material could be that dramatic, which is why I asked the question. If there is a significant difference, even if it's small, then more power to you. Just like people that pay thousands for wine from a certain region and vintage, not really my thing but I understand.If they're just paying all that money for a status symbol then I get to feel good about myself when I make fun of them while smoking my corncob.
>>2231418>Yes, I don't understand Rolexes either.I think you are just being obstinate, but let me explain it so you can understand:"A fool and his money are easily parted"-SocratesYou see, a Rolex is considered more polite than walking around showing people your bank account balance, but both accomplish basically the same end.Additionally, if you think Sig Sauer is an expensive, luxury firearm... lol... check out high-end side-by-side shotguns if you want to see a luxury firearm with price tags equal to car...Cherokees are based, but working on them all the time (while easy) gets old fast. I converted to Toyota tribe: 1st gen Tundra all the way.
>>2231436I mean, I love my cobs and I have a couple inexpensive $50-100 briars but I could see myself spending $1000 or whatever on a pipe if I had money to burn. I doubt I'll ever find myself in that situation, but whatever. The fact that people are willing to pay $1000+ for a pipe doesn't detract from my enjoyment. It is functional art, it has a use value and an aesthetic value. It's not like spending $50,000,000 on some hideous modern "art" monstrosity.
>>2231436Dunhill has strict quality standards, even their seconds brands are overpriced though.Look at the garbage Peterson sells now if you want to see the stark difference that zero quality control whatsoever makes. (For that matter, at ~$150/pipe Peterson is MORE overpriced than Dunhill as far as $/quality goes!)
>>2231447Case in point: picrel is a Donegal Rocky from several decades ago when they kinda gave a fuck...
>>2231453And here is a modern bit of garbage they sell these days... not pictured but the draught hole is likely halfway up the bowl also.
>>2231439>high end side-by-sides...Trust me, I know, but that is in the Rolex category of pointless status symbol IMO. I was trying to give an example of where spending 10x the money on a similar thing actually made sense. $1500 Sig is actually that much better than $150 Hipoint. Not so with the shotguns.>easy to work onYeah that's what I thought until I encountered the electrical gremlins. I'm still working on mine, for the moment there is a hell of a parasitic draw and when I tried to diagnose it, not only did I fail but more problems arose in the process. I hear you about Toyota, I would kill to have an old 4runner, but this Cherokee came to me for free and I'm taking it as a personal challenge to see how many miles I can put on it before even I can't keep it on the road any more.
>>2231462Parasitic drain is a CUNT!Actually had to hunt it down on the Yota, ended up finding a skint ground in the door panel. Just keep pullin fuses and checking amps
>>2231407Which animals are repelled by the scent of pipe tobacco?
>>2231488liberals and queers>1488nice get
>>2231470I think there's a short in the steering column somewhere. It won't shut off when I turn the key off... I have to either stall it out with the clutch, or pop the hood and pull out the fuel pump relay every time I park.Doing all this while smoking Lane 1Q mixed with half and half in a cheap pipe makes me feel like someone's redneck grandpa
>>2231488Nice!Anyway, most all animals rely heavily on smell. They are repelled by UNFAMILIAR SMELLS. Thats why you don't smoke cigs in a treestand or foot hunting either.
>>2231500Well shit! 99% chance it is your ignition switch in that case. Also, There should be a fuel pump fuse in the foot panel fuse box.
>>2231462>Trust me, I know, but that is in the Rolex category of pointless status symbol IMO. In all truth, I would put ANY elaborate weapon like sxs shotguns in a different category... More like a generational keepsake of value than a consumer good pike a rolex. That is because it harkens back to fine swords that were passed down for generations of our ancestors.True, the artwork and craftsmanship is not needed for the base function, but it is a handmade work of martial beauty (at the highest end) not a mass produced wristwatch that is expensive because of the label like a rolex or shoes or some crap.
>>2231511Yeah, I think so. I'm not even worrying about it until I have done some serious rust repair and rebuilt the drum brakes to get it past my state's draconian inspection laws.>>2231513>rolex or shoes or some crapI like that. Dunhill smokers are just like people who wear Air Jordans or Yeezys. Paying for quality maybe but also insufferable fucking showoffs.And I guess, but even less practical. The fine swords were at least partially valued for their build quality in an era where really good arms and armor were hard to come by, and most of the common blacksmiths were piss drunk all the time. Today, even pleb tier firearms have incredible reliability. The $10k side by side will still go bang when your grandson's grandson is shooting it, sure--but so will your Hipoint if you maintained it just as well and shot it the same amount.
>>2231509Okay good to know, thanksI'm the same guy who was asking about this earlier in the thread and now I have two conflicting answers, but this makes more sense.I'm going to start off hunting grouse, rabbits and possibly turkey if that matters
>>2231526More like, Dunhill smokers are the people who pay $1000+ for a custom handmade pair of dress shoes. You can get excellent function and aesthetics + build quality from a $300 pair of dress shoes but some people feel the need to show off with limited-run olive tanned roughout moose leather or whatever. People who wear yeezys are niggers and nigger wannabes, and I've never seen a nigger smoking a Dunhill pipe. There are two kinds of people who wear rolexes, niggers and CEOs. One of those wears yeezys, and the other smokes Dunhills. At least with the dress shoes you're actually paying for something well-made, not some sweatshop chinkshit sneakers lmao.
>>2231418>a Rolex is better than a watch from WalmartA dollar store watch is a better timekeeper than a Rolex, but that's just because quartz is more precise than any mechanical movement. However, a Rolex Oyster Movement is infinitely superior to a Chinese Standard Movement in terms of material quality and fitment. All depends on what you value. I don't mind watchfags spending ungodly money on a wristwatch, provided it's their hobby and that's what they're into. If it's just a hiphop nigger buying a Rolex as a status symbol, that's when I have no respect (even if it's not a nigger).Similarly, if some moneyed up boomer wants to drop $1500 on a freehand pipe that IMO looks retarded, it's ok because that's how he enjoys his hobby. In fact, I doubt these people ever do it for status, because who the fuck even knows about pipes outside of the few pipesmokers left in the world? Your typical normie would think his pipe looks dumb, he'd lose status instead of gaining it.
>>2231418How many pipes do you own?
>>2223437I'd pick either something from Bernard, or something from Toque's Otto range. They're slightly moist which makes them easy to take. But that's my preference. If you're just starting, I'd really only suggest you stay away from notably dry snuff like Fribourg and Treyer's High Dry Toast, or the crumb-style snuff of Sam Gawith blends that are very dense and very moist (Elmo's Reserve is a great example - I love it, but it always feels like I've jammed a cake up my nose).>>2229569>>2231039These days I almost exclusively use Bernard's Jubilaums. It's a lightly mentholated schmalzer-like, with a subtle sweetness that's sometimes reminiscent of marzipan. Works well for me as an all-day snuff. But either buy a little and use it quickly, or store it in a clean glass jar as it degrades and picks up scents faster than any other snuff I've used. Zweifacher is also great, but the backdrip stings so I don't pick it up as often as it deserves.
>>2231800On the storing it in a glass jar, before I forget. At one point I reused a jar that had previously stored Dunhill's Aperitif - a nice Scottish pipe blend. Despite cleaning it out with hot water and soap, I came back to the jar a month later to find the top layer of the snuff had picked up the remnants of the pipe tobacco. Which is cool, but not what I wanted. It was probably from the rubber(?) sealing compound on the metal disk that makes the lid retaining the smell. So either buying a pack of new jars, buying new lids, or giving the lids a fair while to air out is what I'll be doing next time.
>>2231317Prince albertHalf and halfMac baren rusticaIf you dont like the taste of tobacco you wont like any blend at the end of the day, start simple
>>2221271Isn't fishing just small game hunting in the water.
I bought a filtered corncob and I tried Captain Black but it tasted like mostly nothing. I got the idea of a flavor at some point but it wasn't enough to make me interested. I have a tin of Capstan Blue and a tin of Three Nuns. Should I just try those filterless? Can I use the corncob filterless without sucking in pieces of tobacco?
>>2231957hunting is just fishing out of the water with guns
>>2227983Something with a good portion of dark fired leaf, it's bold and smoky and got a hickory sweetness to it.
>>2231807Yeah the flat metal tops are disposable. When canning you always use a fresh top, the jar and ring are reusable though.
>>2231960Shooting a gun is just casting a lure really hard.
>>2231959One thing I had to learn when starting out is that the flavor is nothing like the smell, especially with aromatics. If you got an aromatic Captain Black (I think CB Royal was my first ever tobacco actually), and you expect it to taste similar to how it smells you'll be disappointed. Try the other tobaccos you got, and pay attention to different, subtler and more woody and earthy notes than what you would smell if someone was smoking it next to you.I actually learned more about what tobacco should taste like when I smoked half and half even though it was like a fifth of the price of the Captain Black I picked up.
>>2231959>Should I just try those filterless? Yes, filters are dumb.
>>2232010The Eriksen "Keystone" The vulcanic clay pellets you put in is supposedly the best filter to date
>>2232036I love mine.
>>2232036Yeah, this is the only filter system I'd consider. I've tried balsa, ceramic, and paper inserts and they all sucked. Impeded draw for no real gain.
>>2232006>and you expect it to taste similar to how it smells you'll be disappointedI guess I didn't expect the Black to taste like vanilla candy but I expected something at least. I don't know if I get the point of smoking if I'm inhaling flavorless vapor the whole time. I'll try the Capstan next time.
>>2232068That's what you get with mild Cavendish-heavy tobacco, it's very subtle. Also, you have to smoke aromatics slooooow or else you just burn up any volatile toppings that you might have been able to taste. That's why they're not for beginners (despite being attractive due to their mildness and tin aroma), because they're sensitive to a shitty pack and require a good technique to get the most out of them.
>>2232068was just about to post this >>2232073>you have to smoke aromatics slooooow>That's why they're not for beginnersI started with Captain Black because that's the best they had at the pet store across the street when I got my first cob. I found it very frustrating as well, so I switched to stuff like VaPer and English blends and it was like night and day. I enjoy aromatics now years later but I'm still a little impatient with them. They have to be packed just right and smoked very gently, so its more of a relax by the fire thing and not really a mindlessly puff while I'm fishing kinda thing
>>2232073>>2232076Sounds good friendsI'll give the Capstan a smoke during my lunch break next week.
>>2232068>>2232073>>2232076>>2232081The solution to all of this is blending tobaccos, or purchasing blends. It's not rocket science, you take an aromatic and mix it with a non-aromatic then put it in your pipe. Non-aromatic provides the flavor that you taste, aromatic enhances it plus adding that room note which I have to admit is a big part of why I got into pipe smoking to begin with. Even just try mixing your Captain Black with some half and half which is just a couple bucks at most smoke shops, you'll be impressed with the difference.
>>2232036Just a reminder to people that Nording Keystones can be used in any pipe. Just drop a few in any bowl and you're good to go.
>>2231261I love my Nording compass. The best pipe for clenching and doing stuff while smoking. It's so light and easy to maintain.
>>2232462I understand your viewpoint but advice is preferred to sentiment
>>2232506Sentiment: fuck filters.Advice: don't use filters.
isnt smoking a pipe bad for you? Why would I ever do that?I promised my parents id never smoke. they were crying.
>>2232874Your parents sound like emotionally consumed nitwits.Yes, smoking can be bad for you, but you don't inhale a pipe, and most people don't smoke a pipe (or cigar) nearly as much as cigarette smokers smoke cigs. Take a deep breath. Try it if you think you'll like it. Read up on the reduced risk of oral cancers compared to cigarettes. Make your own decisions.
>>2232879im too scared this is giving me anxiety to be honesti know if i tried to smoke i would fuck it up majorly.id have to keep it a secret for the rest of my life lest my friends and family hearts are broken
>>2232884If the idea of smoking is enough to give you anxiety, you should probably kill yourself now and skip out on a lot of misery.
>>2232884So you base your sense of self-worth on what other people think about you. Smoke or don't smoke. That's up to you. But you really need to stop putting your opinions in other people's hands.
>>2232871Thank you for your candor in this uncertain time
>>2232896how can my self worth not depend on others? other people literally decide if you live or die. I'll never be respected or be a cool guy like in the movies. I just wasnt born with that in my wheelhouse. Everyone always belittles me unless I do something for them. thats just life. and if i try to act above it then i just am made more foolish.
>>2232884Depends how you feel about life. In my early 20s I was overly concerned about safety, health, exercise and all that. Now I'm 35, married, have children, and while I think it would be unfortunate for my family if it happened too early, I literally am not concerned about dying other than the pain involved to get there. They'll get bank from the life insurance so that's pretty cool. Smoking is something I do now without worry even though I never would have considered it in the past.inb4 I'm depressed or suicidal, I'm absolutely not. I've even taken up guitar, am getting my PPL, and am going back to school for a career change.
>>2232905>how can my self worth not depend on others?I can tell you're young

>>2232927There is no 'outside' in my area. I would have to walk on a highway for at least a hundred miles to get somewhere outside. But to go somewhere genuinely good and uplifting and actual nature It's 400 miles.
>>2232932Nobody on the internet believes you. Show me an urban area with a 100 mile radius of nothing but concrete.
>>2232936So your desired standard is a national park.You're only limiting yourself. I won't spoon feed you, because you're too much of a goddamned coward to prove you live on a hundred-mile-radius concrete slab.
>>2232939> so you're desired standard is a national parkThat's precisely what I said I do not want.Dude I get it. Trust me I do. You live in a fantastic beautiful state. The idea of there being no 'outside' is incomprehensible to you. But you just need to take it that this is very real.
>>2232939>hundred-mile-radius concrete slab.Dystopian suburban planning
>>2232941You assume I live in an awesome beautiful state, because that's what you choose to believe. Nothing will be good enough to you.Since you live in such a traffic-ridden concrete space, take a walk into traffic with a blindfold on. Please.
>>2232942Exactly. Nothing even remotely related to being /out/ for 100 miles, when fags here know that when all they get is a park and maybe a shitty trail without significant travel, that's as /out/ as they can get. But no. This guy wants us all to believe there are no parks within 100 miles, not even a strip of grass where he can walk.Or is it because someone SoCiEtY won't let him?Or is it because he's afraid of what people might think if he takes a walk down the road?Or is it simply because he thinks the only thing /out/ is a national park and refuses to do anything less than full-on primitive camping beyond the reach of a cell phone signal?Who knows? This level of misery olympics is always either someone wanting the world to give them permission to live, or it's total bait.
>>2232946All it takes is giving up on yourself, which you've clearly done.
>>2232950All I said it that it's the closest thing to /out/ that some people get locally. But you're good at deliberately misrepresenting words, aren't you, Mr. Gatekeeper?
>>2232945i took a walk down the road and got hassled twice for drugs. then i sat down at the park and was surrounded by dead grass, a basketball court, and two benches. people kept glancing at me like a freak. the only people who came by were doing drug deals.can't wait for you to tell me i'm lying because you have no experience living in a hellhole
>>2232952You're limiting yourself to that.
>>2232951There is nothing there. There's no gatekeeping man. It's fundamentally not /out/. You have to be trolling.
>>2232952Do you not have a car?
>>2232957I don't know how to drive
>>2232955Nope. You did nail it when you said I'm determined with my statements.But this self-loathing motherfucker puts his standards at staying inside or going a hundred miles to a national park. A park is, at least, outside. Managed walking paths between trees? That's more /out/ than this shithead will get for the rest of his life unless he gets a job and a car to drive to the national park he mentioned.Again, I agree: a park is not /out/. It's not bushcrafting, it's not camping, whatever. But it's more /out/ than moping on the sidewalk.
>>2232958Buses are slower and cost more than vehicle ownership, but I'm sure there's a bus which runs to that national park.You have literally no excuse. Take your circumstances into your own hands, and just fucking go.
>>2232958How is that possible? What are you doing to rectify this retardation? With a car, you can go anywhere.
>>2232960why are you obsessing over a national park>there is a bus that goes from your city to a national park 100 miles awaydo you know how buses work? at all?>>2232961nobody wants to teach me to drive. so im just doomed
>>2232961I sort of understand that. I had to teach an ex how to drive when she was in her mid-20s because somehow her parents were OK with driving her everywhere until she went to college, which was in the city, so she took public transportation everywhere.Granted, by that point she just assumed nobody else had anything going on, and were all there to be her personal taxi service. Such people do exist.
>>2232963>why are you obsessing over a national parkThis is the standard shithead set. He lives on a hundred mile desert with no options for anything remotely related to being /out/ besides the national park which somehow magically exists at that 100 mile limit:>>2232932>There is no 'outside' in my area. I would have to walk on a highway for at least a hundred miles to get somewhere outsidePerhaps I misread the distance to the national park, considering that post continues: >But to go somewhere genuinely good and uplifting and actual nature It's 400 miles.However ...>>2232936>its an urban area surrounded by a featureless wasteland that is actively uncomfortable to spend any time in and has no sights to see (ive never seen a mountain not even in the distance).>you dont start hitting national parks with something to offer unless you're 100 miles out.Dipshit brought it up, not me. And then he deleted the post to hide his shame.
>>2232963>do you know how buses work? at all?Yes. Buses have routes and schedules. Just like public transportation buses, other buses do similar. A national park is a tourist attraction. Often, commercial transportation services will include such places in their itineraries, such that people who wish to visit may do so without a car. Do a little searching instead of feeling sorry for yourself.
>>2232963>teach me to driveWe live in a time of technological wonders, what the fuck are you doing? https://www.google.com/search?q=YouTube%20learn%20to%20drive%20Watch instructional videos and get a learner's license (if your state/country has such a thing), you usually only have to pass a written test. Then ask to practice on someone's car until you feel ready to take the actual test. Brainless niggers can do it, why can't you? Alternatively, buy a racing wheel and pedals for your computer and download some sort of realistic racing game. It's not an ideal simulation, but it's way better than nothing. Plus you'll learn about racing lines and automotive parts n shiet.Or do what normal people who don't have an opportunity to learn from their parents do, and take a driver's education course. The instructor will teach you to drive and then you take your exam at the end of it. Jesus christ.
>>2232971I dont have the money to buy a car and get insurance for it without getting a job. and I cant get a job because of 1. incompetent2. i have no reliable transportationpublic transit is infamously horrible here.also I've gotten fired from mcdonalds and store stocking jobs. I literally am just fucked. The economy does not want me involved in it.i dont want to take drivers ed. I already did it. and its not fair. Why cant I have the same opportunities everyone else did? the only people who suggest drivers ed never had to do it
>>2232974>I've gotten fired from mcdonalds and store stocking jobsWhy?
>>2232975slow, bad at math, 'overqualified', and looking like a freak because i give off school shooter vibes apparently
>>2232979I'm willing to bet all those things are your fault. How the fuck bad at math can you be such that you get fired from McDonalds and stocking shelves? Stop being a goddamn weirdo and dragging your ass on the job, holy shit.Seriously, join the military. It's braindead work, but they'll motivate you since you can't seem to do it yourself.
>>2232963If you live somewhere that doesn't really get cold, consider a scooter or moped. They're cheap and usually don't need a license, or some easier license to obtain. It'll take longer to do cross-country trips, but it beats bussing or biking.
>>2231291Who the fuck pays full retail for a Dunhill in current year?Pipe smoking has been in decline for over a century now. Used pipes-yes, even Dunhills-are around and selling for pennies on the dollar. Used Dunhill pricing still may not be as cheap as other brands, but paying 10% of the cost of brand new isn’t nothing either. But speaking as a brand new owner of my very own Dunhill:The best thing about having a Dunhill is that you have it and everyone else who merely wants one does not. Oh, and they’re absolutely incredible pipes and I have no regrets whatsoever about buying mine.
