    Savinelli Estella question

    Hi Scott. I can't confirm what it is, but I've had similar results when I applied Halcyon wax improperly to a rusticated pipe. I wonder if a warm heat gun or hair dryer would let you dab it off with some cotton balls. If I remember right I had to softly remove mine with a "blunt" needle I found...

    "Travel" smoking kit (Hiking, fishing, etc)

    Anthony. I love that roll up. I use a cheap canvas roll up, I got off Amazon. It's for pencils/pens/artists paint brushes. I can fit 2 pipes, lighters, cleaners, and tamper in it. Slides right into my backpack side pouch.

    The Burley & The Briar in Bloomington, Indiana

    I stopped there a few years ago when attending a conference. Great store. Even some coworkers who were with me and not pipe smokers enjoyed browsing through the shop. Crash- if you get up near South Bend, lemme know- I'll buy you a pint.

    Hate-Love Relationships with Blends?

    Rattray's Red Rapparee. I used to be think "WTF, this just tastes like ash". Until I air pocketed it in a old Hilson because it was the only tobacco I had at work. Then all of a sudden it was subtle and "citrus". Now it's on my "grab a tin list" whenever I order.

    2015 MM Reverse Calabash Three Years Later

    C. Embers. I smoke the 2018 and I like it a lot, but man that new stem collects a lot of moisture. I smoke indoors, dry tobacco, but it's such a long smoke, it ends up looking like a greenhouse in there. I don't have one, but I like the stem on the old one better...the 2018 design seems like...

    They Were A Sour Lot In Old Time Connecticut And Indiana.

    Heck in South Bend Indiana we only just recently (2018) received the ability to buy alcohol on Sundays. A whole different kind of self pollution.

    My Wife's Good at this Christmas Thing (2009 Ardor Urano)

    Yeah I really like that. I keep looking at Ardor...but they just seem so heavy. I need to see them in person I think. Congrats.

    I use my Outlook calendar to block out times and meetings/events and I have a huge kanban board my team uses. However I personally use- (2017's version) This as last years planner/calendar. Next year I'll try using...

    New to VaPer's, Needs Advice..

    Admittedly this is not what you asked but McCelland's Tudor Castle and Butra's Blended flake make up 80% of what I smoke. You've gotten some great advice, but I love what the addition of Oriental tobacco can do to blends. Red Rapparee is another must have for me. (No Perique though)
