Do any of the brothers do this?

I sometimes prepare a pipe in the evening to smoke first thing in the morning. I take a clean, rested pipe and fill it with my favourite morning baccy which is 4noggins Prairie Winds.

I fill the pipe and then light it until it's going nicely. I then put it down without tamping and just leave it until tomorrow morning.

When I relight in the morning, the nic hit is something to desire and the taste is so much better, tastier.

I've done it now, filled a Sav Punto Oro 320KS with PW. I'm off to bed now, knowing what's waiting for me in the morning with my first cup of coffee Very Happy

I tried this a couple of times and liked the result as the tobacco has just the right moisture.

However, sometimes I found that I wasn't in the mood for that particular blend or pipe, so I stopped with this practice.

The longest I've had a pipe prepped was 3 days, and the smoke was spectacular!!

I have done this from time to time. My main problem with it is that sometimes things come up and it can be a week or even a month before I get back to the one that was preped. However being the cheap bastard I am I smoke it anyway. Honestly its usually a pretty darn good smoke even after a month. As long as it works for you then you're doing something right!

I've had to set a pipe down on a few occasions and came back to it and hour or so after.
Not really to my liking with Escudo and a few other blends I smoke, way to strong
usually but, I do inhale about half of what I smoke so that may have a bearing on it.

Oh! And Jim, aint nobody any cheaper then this ole tightwad!

I'm with Ron. Granted I've only been at the pipe for a little over a year, but every time I DGT a bowl, I find it not as good as smoking directly after I load a pipe. I don't typically smoke in the morning any way.

^^ This^^ I have only gotten 1 DGT to work right.. It is usually too humid to DGT a pipe well. I may give this a try, though, on Friday night/ Sat morning.

I very seldom light up in the a.m., but I often have a bowl stuffed and ready as a relaxer for when I take a work break. I've been doing pre-winter yard work and after a few hours, when my ancient knees begin to ache, I long for a smoke and a soothing cup of tea. At these times it's nice to have a pipe filled and waiting for the match. FYI, the character Stub in Moby Dick followed this practice every morning. He'd load six (I think) pipes and keep one in his hat band, even while pursuing whales. This important detail was omitted from the movies, for some inexplicable reason. Ahab is shown smoking a pipe, though, and at a key point for his character discards it into the sea. Foolish fellow.

Off-topic I know, but I'm actually teaching Moby-Dick right now to my Romanticism students, we were talking about Ahab's pipe yesterday in class. The passage reads:

"'Oh, my pipe! hard must it go with me if thy charm be gone! Here have I been unconsciously toiling, not pleasuring— aye, and ignorantly smoking to windward all the while; to windward, and with such nervous whiffs, as if, like the dying whale, my final jets were the strongest and fullest of trouble. What business have I with this pipe? This thing that is meant for sereneness, to send up mild white vapors among mild white hairs, not among torn iron-grey locks like mine. I’ll smoke no more-'

"He tossed the still lighted pipe into the sea. The fire hissed in the waves; the same instant the ship shot by the bubble the sinking pipe made. With slouched hat, Ahab lurchingly paced the planks."

In throwing his pipe overboard, Ahab is discarding a symbol of decency, comfort, goodwill, and peace--a symbol of his own lost humanity. Most folks these days would find it hard to believe that smoking could be associated with such things.

Interesting. Makes me want to reread Moby Dick soon.

With apologies to Brother Pete for continuing this parenthesis --I enjoy rereading the American Big Three (Moby Dick, Huck Finn, Scarlet Letter) every few years and would add to the list of pipers in MB the unforgettable Queequeg whose pipe doubled as a tomahawk, but I recall a lyrical passage in which Q and Ishmael share a brotherly moment with the pipe. The novel isn't read much at this point, because I suspect it is a bit too taxing for the contemporary attention span. BUT -- Melville broke it up with brief chapters, so the reader always has the feeling of making headway, and, for the impatient, there is the option of simply scanning the chapters on how to catch, filet and boil whales. The novel has a mesmerizing way of leisurely unfolding itself to the briar-loving reader. Different readers may come to different ideas re: exactly when is it certain that Ahab is mad as a hatter and the voyage is going to end in disaster?

Okay, now what were we talking about . . .

These are the pearls you find buried in the BoB threads! Thanks John!

Somewhere I read that Georges Simenon, the author, had his wife load his next day's pipes the night before. Anyone here have his or her spouse trained as well?

Richard, I don't know any guys who have a wife who is skilled enough to properly prepare a pipe, but I do have a friend whose wife gets up before him and makes him a pot of coffee. While the coffee is brewing, she goes into the bathroom and sits on the toilet in order to properly warm the seat. Once she hears the coffee pot gurgle, she rushes to fill his cup, and deliver it in a timely manner before the toilet seat has a chance to cool off.

I enquired as to whether she might have an unattached sister, but as usual I was out of luck.

Michael, the fellow told me this story right in front of his wife. She neither confirmed or denied it, so as you can imagine I was impressed with her commitment to their marriage. I was expecting her to roll her eyes or something, but she never even blinked. I have been surprised over the years to hear what some women are willing to put up with for a man that they love. Admittedly, these women are getting harder and harder to find in an unattached status, especially a woman who will make coffee and warm a toilet seat at the SAME time.

She was from Alabama though, so that might have a lot to do with it.
