I think there is one in Fallston though, check it out this weekend.
Also Joekm, it would definetly be worth your while to make the 2 hour trip to Chambersburg for a visit to Boswells. Maybe you can get John-boy, P&P, and any other CPS'er in the general area to meet you there for a "smoke-in". But, even if these characters are recalcitrant, do it for yourself. YOU DESERVE A BREAK TODAY! (Now I need a burger :? )

I've used honey to break in numerous pipes, and it works. But to each his own... let the naysayers continue to naysay! :P

I'm not a fan of honey in pipes on principle, but not by experience. Many people use it like PnP and would not consider doing things differently because it has been very useful for them. To use a favorite theological adage of PnP, if the method ain't broke, don't fix it. 8O

Good God! An ODA sized bowl of Nightcap + low hydration + empty stomach + 3 cappuccinos = Stupid-ass mistake.

Now that I've recovered, I'll finish the last 1/3 of the bowl after dinner.
