Check out our Forum Rules. Lets keep this forum an enjoyable place to visit.
Thanks for the feedback @augustoad and sorry to hear about your ongoing problems, hope everything gets better for you.
It is always such a shame to see delays occurring - some, like yours, I assume, are simply unavoidable and out of anyone's control. We all understand that. Some delays are however unconscionable, as we have seen.
Thanks for hosting The Traveler ! Pity we didn't get more images from your great country there which I had the pleasure to visit some 20 or so years ago, but no matter.
Thanks for keeping us updated !
Fiddle on ( or play the pipes... LOL )
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
hey guys, the violin has been shipped. I've sent a PM to fiddle chick with the tracking code.
Skype: augustoad Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone number/whatsapp: +55 42 9861-4084. I'd be happy to talk anything fiddle-related to anyone! :)
The Traveler has Arrived!. It actually got here three days ago while I was at work. It seems the Post Master in town was quite interested in this package and drove it to me personally in her own vehicle. Not sure if the baby powder fingerprints had anything to do with it (just kidding). Terry kept it secret from me and waited for the whole family to be here for our fourth of July celebration. Well, I tell you, this Viola player had quite the time trying to explain that yes, I really do play. Scratched out a few tunes and with a bit of finger adjusting actually made some sweet sounds. Wow. What tone this fiddle has... Would anyone notice if I placed my Fiddlerman Masters Viola in the box and sent it along? hahaha, again just kidding... I'll be offline for maybe a week but will get some vids posted as soon as I can...
So here's how we're looking on the Traveler host list. The next person after Ripton is @kylesito. I messaged him/her a few weeks ago but have not gotten a response. If I don't hear something soon, I'll need to move on. We still have @iBud and @fiddlermikey who both passed on their turn two years ago, so I'd like to get back around to them if they're still interested. After that we have 6 new requests. Of those 6, only two of them are forum members (that I can find) and one of them has only 2 posts on the forum, the last post being sometime last year. That leaves us with one person on the list who has been a regular contributor here on the forum. That would be our beloved Barry.
So the list looks like this:
- kyelsito (waiting for response)
- stirlingite771 (only 2 forum posts)
- damfino (would like to host again)
- Someone in Keezletown, VA
- Someone in Greenville, SC
- Someone in Drumright, OK
- Someone in Germany
- Someone in Ukraine
(I purposely left off their full names)
If you are one of the "someones" please let me know if you are a forum member and what your username is. You can message me privately if you prefer.
Just keeping everyone up to date.
Let the bow flow.
@augustoad I saw your video and loved it! I am sorry you had so much trouble with your hand, I hope it heals well and your fiddling can continue on.
@fiddle chick If it is still possible, please put my name back on the list again. The traveler visited me a few years ago, and this winter I am once again going to be in a string orchestra, so I would definitely take it out and have some fun with it.
Happy to see she survived her ocean voyage. I am sorry to have been out of touch, have had some personal things going on but I sure need my fiddling and celloing, so I will get back into routine here and de-stress. Yee haw, go @Ripton , looking forward to the videos.
