Where is your favorite place to enjoy your pipe?

Postby docjamo » Tue May 05, 2009 5:43 pm

Where is your favorite place to smoke? As for me, I enjoy sitting outside on my bench under a huge shade tree overlooking miles and miles of farm land. We are the highest point in our county so I can see quite a distance. Beautiful scenery. I like to sit there with my dogs at my feet stretched out enjoying the cool breeze. I enjoy watching the chickens free range in the yard. This is a time for relaxation and contemplation and plain old enjoying the taste and aroma of my favorite tobacco. Life is good.

Lucky. The only place I get to enjoy my pipe is in my shed. Banned from smoking in the house. And it blows a gale most days here, so smoking outside isn't really much fun.

My wife kindly has allowed me to convert our 4th bedroom into a pipe den. I have wide screen tv, computer, sound system, internet and comfy chair. Oh, and all of my books.

I need never leave.

Normally on my back porch looking off into the woods or down on the bench-swing by the pond, if it feels nice outside. Otherwise I'm in my big comfy lazy-boy in my living room! :D

My wife of 22 years didn't approve of my pipes or cigars. So after I divorced her in 1995 and inherited a condo apartment from my parents, I dedicated one of my two bedrooms to computer, pipe and home theater. I'm retired and my children are grown but live in the same general vicinity, so I get to see them often. They don't mind my pipesmoking, a grace that keeps them from being disinherited and cast into the outer darkness by Irminsul.

I smoke mine anywhere in the house but my favorite spot is sitting in my computer chair at the desk. Nothing beats a nice cup of coffee or tea, smoking a pipe and reading about different tobaccos and pipes while listening to some great tunes.

Johnny, I agree. I love smoking my pipe while reading tobacco reviews.

I have a den/ study where I do most of my smoking (my wife smokes cigarettes so the whole house is a smoking zone, though). My laptop is there, books, hi-fi, dog basket & dog (often), heater etc. I use the place as a home office as well. But my favourite place to smoke a pipe would be alongside a trout stream.

. Somehow, i always imagine you like Stewart Granger in 'King Soloman's Mine" smoking on the veranda of a home on the veldt, surrounded by dogs and horses and gunbearers. Please don't tell me I'm incorrect in this vision.

For me, on the porch w/ the Demon Peke, a carafe of coffee, ashtray and pipes. A tub of ERRD would be nice, but more BibNBurley these days (saving my ERRD for special times and friends).

I'm lucky enough to be allowed to smoke in my living room. I open the window slightly and also open the kitchen window during a smoke, which allows the haze and its associated smells to blow through nicely. On those cold days when this is not possible, I open the windows for a minute or two immediately after a smoke... Usually does the trick.

I know how lucky I am for my fiancée to allow this, but although not a smoker herself, she claims to really enjoy the aroma of my burning tobaccos.

I smoke in the house Im just not allowed to smoke while on the computer. My girlfriend says it will damage it!!! So I wait until she goes to work to smoke at the computer. Im really not fooling her, she sees the ashes and I usually leave my lighter and maybe a pipe right there.

I also like to sit on the back porch looking into the woods and at the stream, too small for trout but the occational deer stops by to drink. Ive also seen black bears and a coyote while quietly puffing my pipe on the porch. Two bald eagles last weekend!!! :mrgreen:

I smoke wherever I feel like it. I live alone, so it doesn't matter. I tend to smoke more aromatics in the winter though, I live in an apartment building, and when everything is closed up in the winter, I suppose my neighbors like that better than English blends. I prefer smoking indoors, so that is what I mostly do unless we have an unusually calm day. I do get comments from people that come over about the smell of pipe smoke, to which I respond, the door works both ways.

I have also heard that smoke and computers don't go well together, I smoke at mine all the time. I usually have at least two tobaccos at the computer, and a pipe stand, pipe cleaners, ash tray,and a few pipes standing against my coffee mug pencil holder. The problem I heard about with computers and smoking was with smoke being sucked into the computer by the cooling fan and depositing on the circuit boards causing heat buildup. I don't really see a problem with this, and I get a new computer every few years anyway, so I don't worry much about this. Second hand smoke isn't good for pipe smokers either, yet we still do it.

In the living room on a winter afternoon when there's a decent snowstorm, a cup of tea, and a good book.

I'd have to say out on the boat, on a quiet lake at sunset, fishing for anything that bites or nothing at all. Also, on the deck, facing the Mighty Cuyahoga (the nice part, not the part that caught fire...) playing some old-time stringband music. Whoo! If I feel the need to relax with nothing but my pipe, I choose my rocking chair. It's actually not a rocking chair just a standard office chair that I've broken (i mean, "modified,") to allow me to lean back.
