    My Fellow Pipe Smokers

    So tonight I went down to the river with a friend of mine to have a bon-fire and take some pictures of the stars and I figured I'd bring along my pipe. I left it in my guitar case leaning up against his Jeep and he after a little bit he moved his jeep to refocus the headlamps. 20 minutes later I go back and realize the top part of my guitar case is under the front wheel of his jeep. All I could think was "My pipe's in there!?!" *I had my guitar out already or it would have been a different conversation.

    The pipe is my Savinelli 316ex. The one with those boorishly thick walls!

    It survived!!
    No cracks!

    Happy Smoking
    Thanks Savinelli
    Arty

    Yes, I also have a Sav 316 and can see why
    it withstood the "Jeep test".

    I had to do an insurance quote on a browning B25 that had the same happen to it once.

    You were much luckier then the other guy.

    I feel your (almost) pain - the first vacation the wife and I took together when we were still courting, she managed to back into my brand new (surf) board, literally half an hour after I had laid out the cash for it. Then, in a panic, she pinned the gas, driving my longboards on the roof-rack into a low-hanging tree, destroying both and damaging my truck when the rack was peeled off the roof. Needless to say, I don't give her the keys any more...

    Nothing like smoking a bowl while sitting on the banks of a beautiful river. We live on the Guadulupe River and just love it.

    Glad your pipe turned out safe!

    On the Republican here. It's little more than a big creek most of the time, but it's home to me.

    I'm getting ready to light it up now just to make sure it's 100%. I think it will be though!

    That which doth not kill a pipe, maketh a pipe seem more badass ever thereafter.

    To top it off I'm thinking of having my bud sign the crushed case as he's just now getting ready to release his new Hunting Show at www.dreamchaserstv.com ... Which I will be in the 2nd Episode playing my guitar by the campfire smokin' my pipe, not the one that was crushed, but one of the cobs. I'll let ya'll know when it's up.

    Glad to hear the pipe's ok, Arty, but too bad about the case. Maybe next time you should just pack the cob. And a gig bag.

    It was a gig bag. One of the nicer ones that fender makes. No damage to it either... i forgot to mention that.

    Oh good. Hardshell cases are expensive to replace. I'd cry if someone ran over my Fender tweed case.

    I had a 316EX rusticated - stout pipe, that. Glad to hear the Jeep wasn't damaged.
