    And you could only take one of each...Which pipe and Tobacco?

    In my meager collection, I would have to say my Peterson Billiard and Original Frog Morton.

    Wow, I don't think I could pick just one of each! So..... I'll cheat and pick two!
    Now these are not my most expensive pipes, but they are good smokers and they're very comfortable, so here goes;

    Pipes
    1) Peterson "03" Wicklow sandblasted full bent apple.
    2) Stanwell "40" Zebrano smooth oval shanked billiard.

    Tobacco
    1) McClelland Blue Mountain
    2) H&H Mazatec

    My big ol' Barling quaint pot, followed by an Ehrlich. Frog Morton would work for me.

    About 300 lbs. of Star of the East, twenty cases of pipe cleaners, 50 gallons of isopropanol, and my trusty Comoy's 127 large billiard. To last a year or three ...

    Why not a Tropical Island?

    On a desert island I would run out of sun screen before I even got a chance to light up my pipe.

    Very tough call. I can think of 3-4 favorite combos that would suit me fine.

    Have to go with my Stanwell 242 and Escudo.

    ...and although forgetting the matches is bound to be a common mistake, all we castaways will have plenty of time on our hands for trial and error in re-discovering fire:

    Argh...my eyes!
    If I remember correctly, the professor occasionally smoked a billiard, right?
    That would have been pre-Frog Morton though...

    No one said we were stuck on this island alone. On the pipe question, one pipe and tobacco would
    limit the pleasure of smoking considerably, but offhand, my Ser Jacopo "sinuously bent" Dublin blast
    and Dunhill My Mixture 965. Almost all my pipes are close seconds in the running. I too have a well-loved
    Dr. Grabow, etc.

    B, I love my Calabash so much I have two more being commissioned by Rad for me in different colors.

    jiminks, while Mary Ann is incredibly cute, we all know that Ginger puts out on the first date and is way kinkier than Marry Ann, so I go with Ginger all day. Now if we are talking about marriage then of course Marry Ann would be the right choice as we all know Ginger is a slut. lol
