I thought you might like the attached pictures. They were taken on the Inca Trail in Peru hiking to Machu Picchu. The walking stick/flute was great! I shortened it by about 4" to suit me, inset a length of wooden dowel into the end and screwed in a smaller rubber tip. The grip is bicycle handlebar tape. It was an essential item of gear on the trip, and worked as a hiking stick as well as the trekking poles others used.
