The trip is over, but the site remains. All the travelogue, video, and photo entries are in their archives.

Hey Mike,

Loved the Petra Video. Did you find the Holy Grail?

I am getting married on August 31st, 2003, but not in Petra. In Seattle. Just wanted to give you a shout out and let you know I am proud of what you have done pal and I miss you. Way to go!!!

I need your home address - I want to send you an invitation. I know you probably won't be back, but at least you can reminisce when you return.

Keep on keeping it together.

Your friend
