"I have always brought my banjo with me. Of course, I only live about 4 hours away from ACH, so carrying it with me is best for me. If you are thinking of mailing it, you may want to check with David Wooldridge. He works as a historian at the park."

Travel with banjo

So I was entertaining the idea of heading out to the sweeney gathering if its happening again. But am not sure of the best way to bring my banjo since I would be flying.
