Uncomfortable. That's how I felt when I passed the mailing tube stuffed with bubble wrap and my favorite bow to the post master at the post office. It's only being mailed about 100 miles away to get re-haired so the chances of catastrophe are small.
But I probably won't be able to sleep until it's back and safe in my case.

I use threaded PVC plumbing pipes for mailing bows, with a glued-on cap on one end, and a screw-on cap at the other. Really sturdy, and you can buy all the parts at the hardware store. A bit heavier than most tubes, but worth the peace of mind. ;-)

Awhile back I took my fiddle to a luthier to be set up. It took three days but i was calling every day twice a day to check on it. When I finally got it back I felt a wave of complete relief wash over me.
