I'm starting in March thru hiking for the first time. Music is my meditation, or medication, haha. I know i'm going to be singing and whistlng the whole way and I'm definately bringing my harmonica. But i also reeeeeeaaallly want to bring my violin. I don't know if I can stand to be separated from her for five or six months. The dampness would probably ruin her though, but has anyone brought any other instruments on the AT other than a harmonica? Ukulele perhaps? ANYTHING?
