I have many interests in life that are enhanced by the company of a good pipe or fine cigar.
At 54 years of age, I am finding that there is always more to learn. Tobacco has such mysteries and great complexity while providing tremendous enjoyment. After 37 years of study, I have some answers, yet I am looking forward to the next 30+ years to see what else I can discover!

Happy Smoke Trails to all who take the time to read my reviews.
