    Drove up to the Hudson River Valley for a friend's memorial service. Took along a shaving bag with
    four pipes, three tobaccos, pipe tool, pipe cleaners and matches. Last of three nights as a house guest,
    I finally stepped out on the deck for a smoke, first time it was polite and possible. The rest of the time,
    we were in a hotel, on schedule, or in someone's home, and a nice bowl of tobacco just wasn't easily
    possible. Travel doesn't accommodate the habit so well, unless you're mostly outdoors. Does travel
    increase or decrease your pipe time?

    P.S. Drive up was rough, deluge of rain, trying to keep track of the dim taillights of the white car in
    front of us, the big trucks inundating us as they passed, etc. It was like being at sea in a storm.

    Generally when I travel I smoke a lot. But I travel for work (going to gigs) and will easily smoke between set up and show time, although it is easier for outside shows than inside. Or I'm travelling for fishing, which means lots of smoking, and the last would be a vacation, but those are rare. But if I'm on one, of course I will smoke. The point is to relax and do what you want - so I smoke!

    It depends on where I'm going. If I go to Gatlinburg, I smoke a lot. If I go to Florida or Georgia, not so much except for the drive time. Gatlinburg is a pretty tobacco friendly town, and it's close so I tend to go there more often.

    I bring pipes, accessories and tobacco along when away from home, how many depends on how long I'll be gone and where I'm going.

    Finding the time and, more often than not, the place to light up a bowl is usually a challenge -- especially nowadays when so many places are non-smoking. This has caused me to often reduce what pipes and tobacco I bring with me.

    I can sympathize with the OP. I can't count the number of times I've been away on business, packed up my pipes with the best of intentions, and then returned home with all of the pipes unsmoked.

    I travel a lot on business - tomorrow for example I am off to London for a few days. I find it hard to find the time or place to smoke. I take a small pipe and around 25g of tobacco if the occasion arises - it rarely does. I find I smoke more in the comfort of my own home.
