Bowl 20 - GLP Caravan (I know it ain’t July anymore and I’m going to be seeing other pipes, but I’m gonna keep smoking this guy semi-regularly till I get to 30)

I’m getting some slight hints of red and yellow in the coloring so far, beeswax seems to get stuck in the crevices of the carving... need to borrow my wife’s hair dryer and melt that off...

Nice, I have grown tired of just smoking the one pipe, but I am going to keep it at the front of the rotation.

How’s the Ladyhand coloring?

Revor plug in a SMS Meerschaum, it's time for a waxing.

I need to wax the Meerschaum at some point as well.

These are my meers. I've been smoking them more than briars recently. They've never been waxed, just smoked, cleaned out and put back in their cases. Aso included are two clays to show their coloring.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
