So SFC....
Would it be too awkward if I asked you exactly where you lived, where the spare key was, and some time that you woudl be conveniently away from your house? :twisted:

That's quite a collection!

Mine is not quite large enough to need a spreadsheet:
No unopened tins.
GLPease
Renessiance
Barbary Coast
Haddo's Delight

Mac Baren Navy Flake (a la box pass)
Peterson's Irish Oak (a la box pass)
Early Morning Pipe (haven't tried yet, thanks chrisbs!)
Finck's Mild Danish Cavendish
Finck's Black & Gold (thanks hicksdm!)

I actually had some others, but I gave them to my little brother at Christmas, he's just getting into pipes.

Blessings all, Tony

Thanks, my wife thinks different, but she says as long as I smoke it and not throw it away it is a good thing. She likes the aromatics better than the non-aromatics, so I took the hint :wink:

My current "open" tobaccos are:

Presbyterian Mixture (this one is a regular)
G&H Kendal Flake
G&H Rum Flake
Dorisco Mixture
Samarra
Bourbon/Bond Street
Paul Olsen's 111

There may be another tin open but those are the mainstays. I do my best not to have too many tins open, less I end up with a bunch of dried up tobacco.

This thread motivated me to catalogue my stash. 8) Yes, I'm a nerd and did an Excel Spreadsheet.

This list doesn't count the 18 tins I have opened and stashed in bailtop jars.

For me tobacco "collecting" is as much a part of this hobby as anything else. I love trying new blends, and I love aging tins for later consumption. Combine these two things and I have a broad list that is aging away.

:D

Absolutely!! Just give me a few more months of aging on my stash...most all of it is 6mo old or less. Let a few of those tins go past a year (or three, or five...), and you're all welcome to come & sample them with me. As an added bonus, I live in Florida, so the weather is great...I can see it now - 100+ pipesmokers all walking down the beach :D; the Christian Pipe Brigade. Of course, I only have 1 spare bedroom, so y'all will be crowded, but hey it's free!

Okay - count me in. So we're looking at a fall time frame? Post directions! :D BTW - I'll be bringing the wife and kids - so anyone else that wants to help plan activities to keep the kids happy while we smoke up Sandpiper's tobacco let me know. :!:

What part of FL? As I've mentioned before, my job requires quite a bit of travel throughout the state of FL. In June, I will be running the entire state. My in-laws will be down to help my wife with the new baby (& take care of the first one, as well :D ), so I'm going to take advantage of their being here and try to do as much of my overnight traveling for the next several months. I know I'll hate being away from a new baby that much, but this way I don't have to leave her alone with two young'uns later in the year.
