I like the picture! I'll let you know when I take part, which baccy I'm smoking and my start / finish time. The reason I was puffing my clay pipe like a steam train at first was I was worried about it going out
Video of the Sealed Knot Battle of Nantwich procession; I went to this event & had a pint and a clay with one of the Sealed Knot re-enactors:
If I was one of them I'd probably smoke rope or plug in my Old Dominion Jamestown clay; I remember you saying I need to smoke Cannon Plug in my clays at the Sealed Knot events
My "smoke off" will probably be next month as the weather isn't conductive to pipe smoking outdoors as it's been very cold & snowy the last couple of days and rain forecast next week. The depth of snow seems unusual for the time of year as the last time snow settled in March was during the Beast from the East 5 years ago.
All the places where snow is only occasional (such as Greece, Italy, France & Spain) seem to be on similar latitudes; the problem with the UK is the weather changes are brought about wind direction...
