The Road to Pipe Land
1,200 cubic feet of mobile storage, two cars, a wife, a three month old, a five year old and exactly 1,086 miles… Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. Though at times it felt that way, it’s not. It’s the logistical makings of my journey to join the Smokingpipes.com team.
You see, several months ago I realized my hobby of all things tobacco pipe had turned into an obsession, and simultaneously, as the pipe gods would have it, Smokingpipes.com discovered their new found desire to hire a six foot, bearded, pipe-smoking Norseman.
So here I am, working in the promised land of pipes, handling pipes that have craftsmanship trickling out of every grain. Imagine… That pipe you’re smoking right now was once a chunk of briar, shaped and sanded into nothing short of engineering bliss, and I get to be a small part of the artisanal process that gets that pipe in your hands and loaded with your favorite tobacco. Isn’t fate sweet?
