Welcome to Las Vegas

The West Coast Pipe Show began today, and we had a great day. Jim Murray and I handed out so many samples that we went through 1+ boxes of sample bags, plus the ones where people just loaded up and smoked. Slice O’ Gold, the 2012 WCPS blend has been enthusiastically received, and Fusilier’s Ration, again, has been a hit.

My seminar went well, had a nice crowd, and was a tremendous amount of fun. I wanted to get some photos to post here, but I was too busy. Check back tomorrow; I’ll have more to talk about plus some visuals…promise!
