    I'm out on the porch this evening, I estimate 68 degrees in New Orleans. I have five pipes that I keep on hand on the porch, and one of them is my Ozark Mountain. Against all the common sense I've gathered over the years, I have smoked six bowls in one pipe, back to back. The only rest I gave it was the time it took to reload the bowl and get through the charring light.

    I did smoke only one mild tobacco, and I did change the filter every bowl. It's night's like this, when I'm not really paying attention, just wanting to hold a warm pipe in my hand, and to put my teeth in the worn grooves of the stem while I do something else as well as smoke, when I don't ask too much from the tobacco, just background note and enhancement, that I like smoking. I'm no connoissieur. Good things are wasted on me. But a trusty pipe that will take my abuse, and a trusty tobacco that doesn't make bite...that makes a good evening in my book.

    Once in a while, throwing caution to the wind and forgetting everything you know to be good about moderation is quite acceptable. After all, we all need a little Captain Kirk in the mix to keep Mr. Spock on his toes. ;)

    I wound up doing the same thing the other day with a MM Pride and Carter Hall. Half-slept through 5 or 6 bowls of the stuff on my buddy's porch. Had to have been 65 out, first week of February in central PA. No filter, and the longest break the pipe got was when I lost my tamper in the couch halfway through bowl 4.

    I have read Falcon pipes can smoke a lot more from time to time, here and there, why is it that they can?

    They can unscrew the bowl to clean the moisture out. Also the bottom of the bowl is the alloy part so no soggy briar at the bottom.
