No, he is probably just taking a group over to one of the training camps in the area. Of course he is doing all this research tethered to a burner phone. ( I wonder how many seconds it will take NSA to lock into this discussion now -

Re: A sailing trip

Well, that's a bit disrespectful, and i would think if those were my intentions, i would neither be on a forum, or on a laptop, but Go figure. i said this a million times over, but see, if i wanted to, i could take a flight this summer and forget about the whole boating trip, but i'm not doing this for myself, but for those who otherwise would not believe. And i'm just a kid who has faith in The Most High God.

So what has that got to do with running off to Egypt? Nothing you can find there that you can't find in MA.

SOMROM, maybe you could tell us a bit more about your circumstances.

camels? (not in zoo)
Pyramids?
The Nile?
Crocs?

On the other hand - lots of good things you can find in MA that you can't find in Egypt

I agree, but once you read Beth Leonard's book that I recommended at the beginning, you will better appreciate where we are coming from and why you are getting the answers that you are.

And sand dunes and mummies and all sorts of interesting stuff.

Definitely could be an interesting trip but but of course I was thinking metaphysically in my question to the OP. If you are a spiritual seeker you're not going to find what you seek by running off to Egypt whether you are looking for something or trying to hide from the evils of the world. Classic example of a wild goose chase.

Just my opinion.

I wish all the extreme negative posters would stop sailing. Way to dangerous, except for superman. Or listen to the posters and die the slow death at home.

And what the heck is wrong with Cairo? Easy to get around. Just got back. I know, I should be very thankful to be alive!! Leaving home is very dangerous!

Yeah, of course. Because there actually aren't any dangers out there on the open ocean. An Atlantic crossing in the middle of hurricane season is an easy, safe, simple sort of thing that doesn't require any real planning, preparation, or skills. Right?

Please. No one is being "extreme negative." They are just trying to give this guy a realistic perspective on what he is planning. He obviously hasn't got a clue. He seems to think that all he needs is for someone to tell him the right boat to get, and off he goes. Call me a naysayer if you want, but this guy desperately NEEDS to hear someone say "nay!"
