My father smoked pretty much whenever he was awake and not eating or taking a shower. He smoked Half and Half with an occasional tub of PA or SWR if they were out of Half and Half. He would own three pipes at a time but would just smoke one of them bowl after bowl until he put it down and then looked for it. Whichever pipe he found first would get smoked for the next week or so. He kept one in his fishing tackle box, but I think it was in case he dropped the one he was smoking in the water and lost it. In terms of smoking satisfaction, he always seemed very happy with this situation. I can't recommend this for everyone, but it worked for him.
