So the box and case are getting pretty full.  I'm wondering if I can take pictures of it all, send the swag to Fiddlerman, put the photos in the box so everyone can see it all.  That would lighten the load a bit and let us start over with trinkets and nick nacks.  Fiddlerman, you could put all the stuff on a shelf or something for people to see.  What do you think?

That can work. We are in the process of purchasing a new building and may be able to make a spot for that.

Just a small preview of what the Traveler has been up to.

My parents lived up here in Alaska for 7 years, years ago, over 20 years ago.  They never made it up to the Arctic Circle.  It's a hard 6 hour drive over a really rough road.  Most times one gets at least a windshield ding if not a full on broken windshield from the trucks driving it up and back to the North Slope and the oil fields.  So when they came for my wedding, my dad really wanted to go, to check that off his bucket list.  We almost lost my mom to cancer just a few months ago.  The chemo gave her a heart attack and two strokes.  She's been gaining though and just finished a round of chemo the day before she got on the plane to come up here.  So we were a bit concerned that the long drive would be too much for her.  But she wanted to go, so we did.  My dad drove up the Alaska Highway 19 times but never made it up the Arctic Circle until now.  I pulled over and put him in the driver's seat right before we got there.  

 

The playing was terrible because my hands and back were a mess from driving such a terrible, crummy, pot holed, washboard road for 6 hours.

Not at all terrible. I enjoyed it.
