    • Securing valuables

      Do y'all know of any services that will store valuables while you are hiking; hostels or outfitters? My violin can't be left in a vehicle as fluctuating temps can ruin it. Often, my hikes are planned around traveling to visit family and there's a strong chance I will want to take it with me.
      In life there are no limitations. Except stupidity. If you're stupid, you're screwed.

      I doubt you will find too many folks wanting to safeguard a valuable small musical instrument, but I could be wrong. Many hotels have a "luggage room" where you can leave luggage after your stay to pick up at a later time. I suppose you could call ahead and ask...or ship it ahead to your family?
