    Wish me luck as I attend my first pipe show. The family and I are leaving in the morning for Chicago International Pipe Show. With the economy and gas prices- I should use better judgment and stay home but I HAVE A DISORDER OR TWO!!!!!

    The tent IS huge! And it's fairly comfortable. The weather is a little soggy and chill, but the company is warm! The show is also BIG. My feet are sore!

    Yeah Beal...Chicago antis have banned smoking indoors, so the show has an "outdoor" smoking lounge.
    Wish I could have made it...never had the opportunity to "do Chicago"....maybe next time.
    We really need photos guys! Have fun!

    So, I scored several free samples of various tobys to feed the TAD. Picked up two "no name" unsmoked 1960's pipes to feed the PAD. Just spent the last hour or so in my basement (smoking room) and seemed to have given myself a bit of a nic overdose. LOL! Show was really cool, had a good time. However, I forgot my camera. I'm sure someone will post a few pics.

    Worst delima a man can have in his life. Pipe show or surf. I chose surf in the morning but was too exhausted afterwards to make it to the show.:(

    You can be spared if we see pictures of your booty.

    I can arrange that. My CPCC Show booty is much smaller than my :booty:, and less likely to shatter a lens as well. :xd:
