@ELCBK I debated hosting her for a long time. I finally did. There is something about holding it. Knowing the travels she made. Knowing the story behind her. Knowing what she means and the years she has been traveling that made it so worthwhile. It was like magic when I received her. She does have a story to tell you and you become part of it. It is part of this forum and one of the things that makes it special. I am so into its continuation. 

VinceKnight and the early forum members really created a unique “member” of the forum when they created her.

I've been meaning to put myself on the list, but I'm going to wait until I'm fully recovered from injuries. At the moment, although it may seem like I have a lot of music on my plate, most of the active members here are playing more each day than I can in a week. I simply can't commit to playing anything on top of what I'm already doing.

I think you will be able to enjoy her much better after you have recovered. I would love to see and hear both you and ELCBK let her sing.

Seems my post was removed so I'll post again.  If you would like to host the Traveler, post here that you would like it and PM me your mailing address.

Post:
I'm curious as to average shipping charges for the violin, both domestically and internationally. I'm wondering if there couldn't be a fund set up that everyone who signs up for the violin would prepay a set amount into it, but pay for shipping from the fund? Sort of a "Go Fund Me" type thing. Maybe have it set up so that those who contribute separately to help keep it solvent could get a "Badge"?

I know I would like to participate even though I'm a beginning viola player, but the combination of inexperience and the uncertainty of shipping costs would preclude my ever being part of this.

Just a thought!

 

Fiddlerman, myself, and others have offered to help pay for shipping, especially for those expensive trips overseas.

@Fiddlerman Can you reinstate the map?  https://fiddlerman.com/traveling-fiddle/

Thanks Georganne. I'll give it my best shot. That map was a custom made extension for WordPress and after WordPress updates, it tends to not work. :(

I'll get on it.

Successfully fixed. Unfortunately I don't have all the YouTube links of users who shared their videos so that part is gone for now.

Anyone who has not marked the map, please get a hold of me. I know that we have people missing but I haven't done the best job of keeping up. Sorry......

So, no one is one the list right now? 

Been thinking about it (like the "connection with other members" concept), but not sure I want to play a 4 string... and, OMG - what if it sounded better than my Mortimer? 

I'd never recover!

I enjoyed looking at BillyG/Mad Bill's area on GoogleEarth.

I wonder how many minutes of the year the weather is that nice!

@Georganne -

Thank you for asking! 

If I survive this month, maybe I'll be able to make a decision on this matter, then. 

I'd like to see more people interested, 1st - going to just 1 person doesn't seem like "Traveling".

Oh it's been hosted by dozens of people all over the world.  Here's a map of just SOME of the places it's been.  https://fiddlerman.com/traveling-fiddle/

@Georganne -

Oh, I saw the wonderful map - but I believe there needs to be at least several more people interested... right now.   

Or, at least before I'll consider hosting.

Then, another journey begins. 

 

So, I'll leave it at I'm interested and even

willing to be the first if a handful of other members will sign up. 

My handful = 5 

If 5 members will sign up, I'll be the 1st.

Ok that sounds like a great plan.  Thanks!

One of our newest luthiers/set-up specialists at Fiddlershop, "Jeremiah" is hosting her this month. You should be seeing posts in a week or two. :)

The Traveler was used by Fiddlerman in his newest Tune of the Week. Fiddlerman played something stupid on the Fiddlerman Traveling Community Violin.

Something Stupid

You can get the sheet music

I found this thread from 2015 in the Breakroom. It is about the Traveler, so I am putting a link to the topic here. It is soooo funny.
