What's the longest you've lost a pipe for, only to have it turn up later? I haven't seen my Peterson Belgique in a couple of weeks. I'm sure it will turn up. This is the pipe I always seem to misplace, because I usually use it for short smokes when I'm on the run somewhere. It'll turn up...

I'm sure it will...

:cry:

Can't say I've ever had that happen. If I'm not smoking them, they're in my shirt pocket or cardboard boxes.
Shit I'm always losing things, but they mostly turn up eventually. The only pipe I lost outright was a Chacom 2016 POY that I placed on the roof of my car as I was trying to round up the dogs to go home. Drove off down the highway and realized when I got home what I'd done. I make myself laugh sometimes. If I didn't I'd have to cry.

I started buying shirts that have a pen slot in the button flap. Really secures the pipe in when the flap is buttoned.

Really? Aren't your pipes humungous? How do you fit a 4 oz meer in a pen slot? 🤣

That would work with my Peterson Belgique though, if and when it turns up. I usually carry my pipes in a jacket pocket, or pants when the weather is nice.

15 mins, It was a small ropp pipe that I eventually found I stuffed it in my messenger bag, later remembering that I had taken it but not used it that day thus forgetting it. Now, I only carry pipes in a small pipe pouch plus the accessories. Anything outside of my pouch is bound to be lost eventually as proven with tampers, tobacco, and lighters.

Only the stems fit up through the pen slots and then the pipe slides down into the pocket and the flap is buttoned. My largest meerschaums are sectional. Though my work shirts have no pocket flaps, the size of my pipes generally keeps them from falling out.

TAMPERS! Man. I've gotten better at keeping track of them, but I lost like one every couple of months for a couple of years. 🤣

Duane, is that a giant figural meer in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? 🤣

That's one big pipe, or pocket, or both. I could bet all my group 1 dunhill size collection could fit in there.

Back when I was a senior in high school I went on a picnic at a state park about 50 miles from home. When I got home I discovered my pipe was missing. It was the first Castello I ever bought and cost me a whopping $25, so I wasn't going to accept the loss easily. I turned around and drove back to the park. Arriving at dusk I used a flashlight to search the area we had been using. Fortunately I found my pipe and I still smoke it regularly to this day. That was the only pipe I can remember ever loosing. puffy
