    I bought 2 leather pouches for travel (one is a little larger for longer trips) but I seem to have misplaced my smaller one with the pipe! Its not a money thing, I feel like I lost my puppy. All 19 of my pipes are my favorite. Make that 18.

    I came back to smoking pipes regularly when I found my Peterson pouch, with two Peterson pipes, a pipe tool, a few pipe cleaners and some dried out tobacco inside it. The pouch was stuffed between items in a sealed moving box filled with T-Shirts from a move we made 5 years ago.

    Don't worry, if it's "lost on post" (in or around your home or vehicle) it'll show up eventually.

    Ouch, hope ya find it soon zonomo. I don't know if it's just me, but when I am looking for something I lost or misplaced I can hardly ever find it. Then when I pretty much give up and chock it up to a loss it usually turns up where I least expect it.

    I found a meer pipe in my sock drawer? Where did that come from? I don't remember buying it. It's never been smoked. That's really odd.

    I'm missing a Meer set of two pipes that my wife bought me 40 years ago. I keep hoping they'll appear someday.

    They are special when someone bought it for you.

    I know how you feel zonomo. I lost a pipe last year while hiking the Liberty Lake trail. I retraced my steps and found the pipe on the 3rd day hanging on a limb where another hiker had placed it. It was only a Medico Varsity but I love that pipe as it has been with me since I first started smoking. Kind of like looking for a lost pet...

    Like I said:

    Took almost a week, which is about average:

    I found it!!!! Found it between the front seat and console Baby's back home with daddy.

    My guess is that if you don't find the pipe you will always remember it..I hope you do find it though.

    Life's most valuable treasure is..Love

    Wipes tear from eye . Just the horror of it all .

    Glad the pipe was found!

    If I lost a pipe I would be upset too. Each of my pipes has a different story and I've experienced different things with the different pipes, so I would be upset without one of my pipes too.

    hell yeah, glad you found your companion (pipe). i lost one of my pipes that was a gift from my wife and daugter. i was hurting inside because of the sentimental value i had for that pipe. well ~ 2-3 years later a friend of mine walk up and said, here is your pipe you lost. i was elated too say the least. my pipe was under the front seat of his van. until the pipe was located, it stuck in my crawl. it made my day, and i never said anything to my wife or daughter. in fact i smoked that very pipe this morning.

    take care.
    mike.
