You're in a good place



Now, have you begun obsessing over your your smoking and packing technique Which, if you are, is actually kind of fun. It's like a puzzle that you solve over years.

Nah, I know the only way to slow my cadence is to light two pipes and alternate.
The packing, I'm not really paying attention to that too much. My biggest hurdle is moisture. It's 1000% humidity outside, so I really have to dry it out before I try to light it. Otherwise, it's sounds like a bong.

I don't know what I don't know.

What did @OneStrangeOne mention in another thread, in Texas, you get three weeks of winter? Even in South Florida it's breezy the first part of the year. Do you guys get that or is it just hot and moist or hot and rainy all year? Sorry, I don't mean to turn this into a weather thread, I'm just curious.

Here in central Texas January and February are typically our coldest temps, average is probably 40 or so although we do sometimes get down into the teens and single digit temps. June, July, August and September are hot, average is probably 95 with a fair amount of triple digit days and an avg humidity around 60% or so. The rest of the year probably averages out in the high 70ís - 80ís and avg humidity around 40%. Decent breeze most of the time.

That actually doesn't sound that bad lol Almost like a more extreme San Fernando Valley, which is just over the hill from Los Angeles, and living there for a while, wasn't too bad.

I don't think I mentioned it, but I have an estate pipe that's as old as me coming in tomorrow.



I, currently, have three pipes on hand, with two more in the pipeline (pun intentional) to bring me up to 5 in the rotation. While this doesn't sound like much, consider that my first bowl was on 4-18. That's only 21 days into this!!!!




I would blame you guys, but this is all on me (and my credit card).
All sounds very normal to me, especially when you hang around here. The really scary part is when you have this going on across multiple interests. Watches, custom knives, cigars, pipes, mountain bikes, cars...

Every once in a while, I have to stop and have a little panic attack and reign it in.

Sounds like according to these fine folks you should probably have a pipe for every day of the year, you know, for the sake of the pipe's longevity.

Yeah, it's really mild here in the winter. Summer is what we have the rest of the year, and it is pretty humid the whole time.

Well, you'll figure out your piping issue with the humidity. So much of piping is trial and error. I don't even know if there is a science to drying out your tobacco. I once packed a pipe, forgot it, and smoked it a week later, and it wasn't too bad. I'll often pack a pipe and smoke it the next day.
