Actually I didn't know about the folklife camps, thank you. The only people I know around here doing anything similar is a couple who do traditional Lithuanian dances in Seattle, but they dance to recordings. Sort of socially isolated here (:

The bundy was my grade school instrument, I played it til the thumbrest couldn't be attached anymore as we kept tightening it and using bigger screws til the holes were ruined. Made a new thumbrest out of "cool melt" hot glu blobs shaped to my thumb and actually that works a lot better. Not something I would do to a fine instrument though. After it seemed unplayable I started gluing stuff to it, liked it again and repadded it. It plays most of the notes, one pad got too much glue on it and needs to be replaced. I had a good Selmer B-flat but traded it in for credit toward the alto which is very hard to play. Oops.

I used to live in Portland, would love to get back there.

The parrot refuses to cooperate. She sings in operatic tones but only major key melodies, and prefers when I squeak rather than play the notes as they are supposed to be heard. Parrots are fun, but not when you are trying to make a home recording.
