The Pipe-Smoking Breadwinner is a resource for a new pipe-smoker as envisioned through my own experiences as a new/old-stock pipe-smoker.

My name is Ted Shideler. I’m a thirty-one year old millennial living in Indiana. I picked up pipe smoking from my dad, who picked it up from his dad. We were all middle children; I’m not sure if my great grandpa smoked pipes or not.

When I’m not smoking a pipe I’m out driving around taking pictures of one-room schoolhouses and county courthouses. I also play drums, record music, and work on vintage Showbiz Pizza robots.
