    New member from The Netherlands

    Hello all,

    My name is Jan and I've been smoking pipes for close to twenty-five years now, with the occasional breaks in between. When I started out I saw myself as a collector of sorts, and pretty soon I had around a hundred pipes lying about. Most of them did little more than that so in recent years I sold the bulk, reducing the number to a more managable eight: two Ashtons, two Upshalls, a Dunhill, a Ferndown, a Reiner and a Big Ben. My taste in tobacco also changed over the years: in the beginning I enjoyed strong latakia-blends, but nowadays I favor VaPers and the occasional flake. In the present rotation are Presbyterian, Elizabethan, Caledonian Highland Cream, Manil's Semois and a rather mild flake of which I'm not exactly sure what composition it is. Made by Murray's about twenty years ago, that I do know. I both earn and spend most of my money on or near the water: I work as a bridge- and lockmaster and come spring, I like to fool around as much as I can on my boat. I look forward to participating in this friendly community!
