I had some extra time this morning to enjoy my meer and had a darn near perfect Pack with no relights. As a newcomer to the pipe, I chalk this up as a win.
Just wanted to share with people who would "get it"
Carry on.

that is good, it is kind of rare when I do one light smokes, i usually do 2 relights or 3. I still have to master this wonderful technique.

Nothing to master! If smoking all the way to the heel is a goal, that's fine, but relights within reason are fine, too. Unreasonable number: tobacco too wet, packed too tight or too loose.
Smoke on!

True points all, but the combination of pack, temp, and moisture all combined for me this morning.

Congrats on your perfect pack/ perfect bowl.
I've only had a few. Most of them were my first bowl of the morning which I light just before leaving the house and smoke all the way to work. On a few wonderful occasions, I have arrived at work, stood outside the back door finishing off the last of the bowl, and suddenly realized I had not taken my lighter out of my pocket since I left the house. Those are truly magical moments :)

<p>Mike, that is truly a wonderful moment in pipe-smoking, whether you're a neophyte or a well-experienced puffer. Good for you that you found that sweet spot so early in the game. Cherish the moment--it may never happen again.

I've only had this twice, and both times I was only intending on it being the charring light. I'm trying to be more content with a couple of relights just so I can enjoy my smoke more.
