Pipe smoking tends to be a solitary experience at home in my garage. However, sometimes I’m able to take my pipe with me as I go on a trip, or to check out a tobacco shop. It’s not often, but when I do, I like to write about it. Here are all my articles about various pipe shops I’ve visited, or pipe shows I’ve been fortunate to attend.
