# 01 - Sensible Prepping

How prepared are you for the next natural or man-made disaster? I have spent most of my life in the U.S. Marine Corps and working as a volunteer for various Fire Departments and Rescue Squads. For the past 14 years, I have also been a First Aid / CPR & Wilderness First Aid Instructor-Trainer. I am going to attempt to put all the years of knowledge that I have acquired in disaster preparedness into a new video series that you can use to help make sure you and your family are prepared for the next disaster.

Don't Ever Call Me A . . .

This video is a continuation rant about topics that were debated with a friend the other day that ended with the creation of my "Unapologetically Politically Incorrect" video. This was another topic which became a heated debate. ------------------- LIKE SUBSCRIBE SHARE ------------------- ►FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/the_kilted_piper/ ►INTRO MUSIC: Scotland The Brave | Played by The Kilted Piper ►BACKGROUND MUSIC: Hawaii Star Dreams | Stock Media provided by Flamich / Pond5 ►OUTRO MUSIC: Hawaii - Upbeat Happy Positive | Stock Media provided by DOTSOUND / Pond5 I do not promote the illegal underage use of tobacco products.

Unapologetically Politically Incorrect

Warning, There may be something in this video that you may find offensive, oh well. I have something important to say and if you watch it all the way through and you may just change your mind. I talk today about an encounter that I had yesterday with a longtime friend that made me think about a few things. I would like you to stop and think about something too. If I have said something in this video that offended you, I am sorry. Not that I said it, but that you were such a weak-minded individual to allow something that I said to offend you. Toughen up a little. We all need to grow a thicker skin and stop being such pansies all the time. It is time to grow a pair and take a stand for what is

Bones vs. Savinelli - Bare Pipe Challenge

I am going to pit a $40 unfinished Bones pipe against a $480 unfinished Savinelli Punto Oro Corallo to see if there will be a difference between them as they start their coloration process with use over time. I will be doing time-lapse videos showing their progression from time to time so you can see how they are aging. Will a Bent Pipe color differently than a straight pipe? Will paying $480 on a pipe give you a better-colored pipe than a $40 pipe? These are some of the questions we want to find out as we match these two pipes in a head-to-head challenge. ------------------- LIKE SUBSCRIBE SHARE ------------------- ►FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagr

Bones Pipe Advice Needed

I received my new Bones Pipe from Chris Morgan Pipes today and I need some advice from other Bones owners. I am not sure if I have a problem with this one or not. I also try out some Lane 1-Q in my brand new Mike Tinsky Tan Blast Canadian pipe. ------------------- LIKE SUBSCRIBE SHARE ---------------- ►FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/the_kilted_piper/ ►INTRO MUSIC: Scotland The Brave | Played by The Kilted Piper ►BACKGROUND MUSIC: Hawaii Star Dreams | Stock Media provided by Flamich / Pond5 ►OUTRO MUSIC: Hawaii - Upbeat Happy Positive Summery | Stock Media provided by DOTSOUND / Pond5 I do not promote the illegal underage use of tobacco

YABO | Another Estate Pipe Added To The Collection

I received this right after my last video, and I just couldn't wait until tomorrow to smoke it, so I apologize for two videos in the same day, but this beauty is worth it. An Unsmoked Savinelli 604KS Punto Oro Corallo with the Old School "Elephant Hide" rustication, not that new pebble grain looking stuff on the Corallo's now. I have been looking for one of these with this old style rustication on it for a while, and I finally located one, so I just had to have it. ------------------- LIKE SUBSCRIBE SHARE ------------------- ►FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/the_kilted_piper/ ►INTRO MUSIC: Scotland The Brave | Played by The Kilted Piper ►BAC

Tobacco Review | Seattle Pipe Club - Plum Pudding

While polishing and cleaning my pipes I decided to try Plum Pudding from Seattle Pipe Club. Once I tasted this tobacco I had to post a review of it. This is an exquisite tobacco blend and well worth a try if you have not tried it already.

YABO | Pipes & Cigars.com | Product Review Previews

Received some "basket pipes" and tobacco from Pipes & Cigars.com but the main tobacco I ordered was back-ordered. I decided to wait on my review of the ePuffer 609 e-pipe while I work through an issue that I experienced. I want to make sure that I didn't do something wrong so that it does not negatively affect my review if it was my fault. I will get the ePuffer review in a couple days. I also planned on doing a product review of the custom pipe roll that I had made but upon receiving it today, I noticed a problem that we did not anticipate when designing it. I will work with the manufacturer of it and see if we can get the design modified then I will do a review of it. I started to lose lig

YABO | New Pipes and New Tobaccos

Tobacco Suggestions Needed and Testing New Mic Setup

Testing out a new microphone setup. I am still searching for a new all-day tobacco. One that has bold, complex flavors, something that when I smoke the first bowl the heavens part and the birds sing, lol. I tried Frog Morton this weekend. The Froggy Didn't "Come-a-Courtin" this time, lol.
