: Sounds like a GREAT trip! We've been to most all the places you mentioned and would have LOVED to have gone with you!

By the way, aren't Nathan and his father (and a lady named Brooke - the mother?) also somewhat controversial due to some of their activities? I heard their names being mentioned in connection with a controversy over talking about spirituality to outsiders, some calling it selling out to newagers. Once again, many different views, I'm sure.
