A pleasant conundrum...

Fridays are Fishtastic!
So, after 3 years, I am actually going to take a vacation that does not involve having to deal with the wife's health issues- I am actually going out of town. Granted, it is only for a three day weekend (I am saving vacation time for October, for Ohio, Niagara Falls, and Blue Ridge Parkway), but I am pretty stoked. I am bopping down to Texas Hill Country to a town called Fredericksburg. I have stayed at this place before- 200 acres outside of town, with elk wondering on the property. It was peaceful.

So, I actually have to plan on what I am taking along. I am probably going to take my bulldog, because if something happens to it I won't cry too hard- picked it up in an antique store (the last time I was in Fredericksburg) for $7. Now I have to pick which tobacco I want to take, and maybe order a pipe pouch. I am leaning toward Penzance, but still need to check out some pouches.

So, do any of you guys have a favorite travel combo?

I tend to bring VAs & VAPers, but knowing your Lat penchant...I don't think you can go wrong with Penzance.

As pouches go, I have this Peterson. I like it because it's small enough to fit in a pocket.
I was just checking that very one out at SP. Does it have a sealable liner for the tobacco, or should I plan on using a ziplock?

I order that and a chrome pipe rest. I just noticed that they allow for USPS shipping, thankfully. UPS is always slower and more expensive, in my experience. USPS Priority 2 day was only a little over $6.

Morgan pipe has that milled aluminum frisbee looking tobacco holder that has an o-ring to maintain a seal. Supposedly holds an ounce or less. Pricy tho at 89.00 smacks.

Congrats. on the long weekend vacation...I like the hill country. My Tio and Tia lived in Uvalde when I was growing up so been in that area quite a bit. Last family reunion of SWMBO's was at a place not far from where you are going.

If you go through Austin (I hate the two level lanes on 35) stop at Franklin's BBQ and pick up a pound of sliced brisket for me and throw it in the freezer when you get home. I'll be down to your place shortly and pick it up and pay you for it.

Good buy, Owen. I don't know if my Peterson carry pouch is the exact same model, but the dimensions are the same. It holds the pipe, and the side zippered pocket holds some pipe cleaners, a pipe tool, a lighter, and whatever else you can stuff in it. The tobacco pouch is not sealed...I usually put the 'baccy in a ziplock. My carry pouch has the magnetic closures on it. I usually throw mine in the glove box of the car or in the suitcase. I love it...keeps everything together when traveling.

Oops! Sorry didn't realize you already picked up a pouch. I wouldn't have posted about the Morgan. Serves me right to skim read.

That is very nice. I might get one in a few paychecks- catching some stuff up.

I always go down 281 to Johnson City, then cut over. I35 is for the birds :)

No problem- gives me an idea for later.
 
If in the Hill Country, a trip to Greune (pronounced like "green" for the uninitiated) is always nice. Good walking and a couple of really decent restaurants.

Unacceptably Lasering Chicken Giblets?
Every time we are in that area we make a trip to Grape Creek Vineyards for their wine tasting.
It's just outside of town heading East and on the South side of the roadway!
