I spent the morning selecting and cleaning the pipes I'll take to Chicago. Deciding which pipes to take is always a soul searching activity. They have to be great smokers for the hours of smoking to come and they have to represent one's "collection" to some degree. This matter of representation isn't just a vanity. Hours are spent talking pipes and it helps to have a piece of hard evidence to back you up when you say "X makes some great pipes!". You can immediately pull out a pipe by X and prove you speak the truth ... not that I've ever had anyone call me a liar at the pipe show - but just in case.
After a few hours of gunky pipe cleaners and some buffing, my chosen few are ready for the trip. -T
