I know if I want to take my pipe making to the next level I need some help and training, so I talked to Grant Batson, (who has a creativity that connects with mine, as well as very impressive training himself under Todd Johnson and Teddy Knudsen) about coming out to do a course with him. Problem is, it isn't in the budget. So I started an indiegogo campaign to send the rev to pipe school, and have raised the money to go and it keeps coming in to help upgrade my shop. I am humbled by the support from so many people.

I leave Wednesday for three intensive days in Grant's shop, and I am giddy with excitement. I know that I will increase my efficiency and quality, and am so looking forward to this.

One highlight will be having some beers and smokes Steve Morisette, Joe Case, Adam Remmington, Bruce Weaver and Grant. I will take some pictures.
