    Evening chaps,
    I haven't posted anything for a while and this is why...
    So I was getting up for work a couple of days ago, I had a 600 mile trip with many a delivery to make. I collected all my kit and kaboodle together, GPS, Pipe, Royal Yacht and a couple of ham sandwiches. I put it in a pile ready to pick up and throw into the autotruck. Kissed Mrs. S goodbye, picked the kit up and started the trip. This was abut 0300. By 0600 I thought I may have my first pipe of the day, pulled into a safe area and started hunting for my wee briar....shock upon shock, terror upon terror. I couldn't find it. I pulled the truck apart and still no sign. It's been 3 days nw and my little Orlick briar is still AWOL. He was my first pipe and just about broken in....He shall be missed.

    Misplacing a pipe is a terrible feeling. Thankfully, all my misteps have been traced, never losing any on my own. The ones stolen from me have left a deep hole, but there isn't anything I can do for them...

    This is one of my biggest fears. I'm also afraid of the Amish, antiques and anything corduroy.

    Seriously though, that sucks. I've been very lucky with my pipes thus far. Stories like this remind me to be careful. I hope your pipe turns up.

    Morning chaps
    Cheers for the replies,
    Home has been searched, the wife and all 3 cats were questioned with varying degrees of intensity.
    Still AWOL!! The only thing I can think of it has was dropped when I was loading up the Autotruck and as it was dark and raining I didn't notice......D'oh! indeed.
    Although a lesson has been learnt.....don't rush, take your time and everything will come up roses, just like smoking the old pipe.

    Toodle pip for now

    Afternoon chaps,
    To ease the pain of losing my Orlick Briar (gone but not forgotten), I have been buying up some estate pipes from flea bay.
    So far I have purchased:
    Falcon AN11 (looking forward to trying a Falcon out after reading Jerrys post about them)
    An unknown make with silver fillagree on it, a bit pouncy but it was with the Falcon.
    London made special
    Kay Woodie with leather trim
    and finally a Peterson (trying to find out which model at the moment)
    All bought and paid for and the total came in for less than 3 tins of My mixture 965.
    **Bloomin t'interweb won't let me get the images**
    Toodle pip

    An emergency pipe in the glovebox is a beautiful thing. I might take to leaving an full emergency kit with a tin of flake, a bic, and a czech tool. With a beaten up estate pipe or MM cob it could be the best 20 dollars ever spent.

    Those all look great! Enjoy them! Who knows - maybe you will be kicking about and turn uo your Orlik, too, then you'll have a full brace for smoking!!!

    I am smitten with that silver "caged" briar, and the Falcon looks inviting, too.
