My baby grand won't fit.  Just kidding.  I sold it last year. My electronic arranger keyboard stays at home, home, on the range.  I prefer to bring my, little brown jug.

Yamaha P-90 88-note keyboard.  Underneath the rear window of my 17SD.  I modified my bed into a 33" wide pad so I can put my feet underneath the piano.    Also have a guitar, stored in hanging locker.  Doesn't get played very often. Rusty fingers.

I carry a Navajo Flute, however I'm bad enough with it that I only play  (or attempt to play) it when boondocking away from anyone else!

I believe you've posted pictures of your setup in the past.  We have to carry enough stuff already, and loading and unloading the keyboard would be a pain.  We are weekenders for the most part so it's just not practical.  I guess I could break out the old harmonicas.  Don't even know where I put them.  My lungs aren't what they use to be either. :(

We're full time musicians. We're leaving for a gig in Louisiana tomorrow and taking two guitars, a mandolin, hammered dulcimer, mountain dulcimer, and bowed dulcimer.

Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival has been held in Glen Rose, TX for the past several years. We usually see many of our Casita friends at this event. Make your reservations ASAP. We can host several at our home place (west of Glen Rose) if they are booked full.

 

My son brings along a harmonica, kazoo,  acoustic guitar , duck calls and often his trumpet. He plays reveille and taps for his scout troop on campouts and he wants to tryout for "Bugles  Across America" to be a volunteer at veteran funerals. He has been banned from inside the Casita with the trumpet and duck calls

The Lone Star State Dulcimer Festival is great. We were there several years ago. It was our first trip out with our Casita.

We enjoy the Lone Star Dulcimer Festival. The setting at Oakdale Park it great. Sitting in lawn chair and listening to live music on the old stage,  most of the day and evenings, Wow! 

 

We like the training clinics they offer as well. My son wants to add a hammer dulcimer to his musical collection. I pointed out a mountain dulcimer would "travel" much better in the Casita. 

 

There is two annual Blue Grass Festival held at Oakdale Park in Glen Rose. One the first weekend in May and the other in October. The local Blue Grass Assoc host a show & jam at Oakdale the 3rd Saturday each month.

My schedule is on my web site which you can access from my profile page. A good one for camping is the Cumberland Gap Dulcimer Gathering held at Cumberland Gap NP in May.

Vermilye..about 20 years ago I was visiting Grand Canyon with my brother. One evening at sunset, he took his Navajo flute with him, sat with his feet dangling over the South Rim, and began to play. I don't believe he realized it, but a crowd gathered behind him, and..unusual for Grand Canyon, every one of them stood silently and respectfully as his notes fell into the canyon, echoing off the walls in the intoxicating silence. It wasn't until he'd finished playing when the sun had gone down, stood up...and the crowd began to clap. An intensely private man, he was both embarassed...and pleased. It was a most beautiful thing to hear. Such a lovely tribute to a lovely..and usually, far too noisy place..that is the Canyon.

 

Don't care what other people 'think' of your playing. Don't worry if you play 'well' or not. Play your flute.

I agree, Clover, the smaller drums would fit...but they just don't have that BOOM. If I'm playing it indoors, I have to wear  headphones to protect my hearing!

 

I have the '''medium''' sized one, the ones in the middle of your photograph. That big monster behind them is just too big...

Wow! you have to wear  headphone, that is some significant  BOOM. Is the big BOOM you make like  taking out our aggressions on a punching bag or is making you feel like you're back home in the Army..........I'm imaging field artillery, LOL!

 

A couple of weeks ago we were camped near (one of)  your old stomping   Fort Hood. A couple of night they were having some serious field artillery practice going on. Lots of big BOOMs.
