I’m taking over the Traveler “tracker” duties.  So, as your new Traveler Tracker, I’ve posted some information/instructions, and host request form for the Traveler here:

Now that the Covid hiatus has past, I’m hoping many active forum members will continue to contribute to this wonderful community project.

Awesome! You were spot on about the cost. When I shipped it to @SharonC, from Illinois to Georgia (in the USA) via FedEx, it cost me $46.37 and I included insurance, even though it is apparently optional. I just figure it increases their priority to not lose!

The old curmudgeon!

Traveler-2022.JPGImage Enlarger

The Traveler is 10 years old this month--

On 23 Jan 2013, Forum Member VinceKnight started the discussion of a “Traveling Fiddlerman Community Violin” a.k.a “The Traveler” that is posted here:

https://fiddlerman.com/forum/t.....in/#p39337

Shortly after, Forum Member Scotty donated a student violin.  He then sent it to its 1st host who donated a case, Forum Member ftufc, who posted the 1st host entry here on 2 Feb 2013:

https://fiddlerman.com/forum/t.....-4/#p39803

Since that time, there have been 45 hosts (3 repeats) in 7 Countries & 26 States. 

You can see the map of the Traveler’s visits here & some info:

https://fiddlerman.com/traveling-fiddle/

I currently have the Traveler, and I am its current “Tracker”.  I would love for it to go to the next host. 

If you are interested in more information on the Traveler and/or hosting it, you can go here for a list of links to the information:
