Friday night I was smoking Ruins of Isengard in my Gandalf pipe (yeah I'm a LOTR fan, so what! lol) and I wasn't really paying any attention to the bowl until it went out. After three tries relighting I finally figured out why it wouldn't relight...it was all gone! I had smoked it all down to a fine ash with only two relights near the beginning, no tamping, and no dumping of ash! I gotta say I got a little silly! Of course that may or may not have been the alcohol speaking!
