Subject: climbing and caravans, all on-line

Dr. McCarty,

I'm behind in my HUMANIST reading and only today reached your message re the
climber who will document his feat as he goes, sending pictures to the web.

There is currently a camel caravan slowly moving along the Silk Road
making the trip made by merchants for centuries, at the original pace.
They, too, are documenting their journey as they go, publishing on the
web. They also invite readers to send them e-mail and they offer to
respond. I haven't visited the site in a while but could probably dig up
the URL if you're interested -- I found it through an Alta Vista search
several months ago, but I believe they're still out there, humping
slowly along. It should be easy for you to find it, too, if you care.

Thanks for maintaining the HUMANIST list. I enjoy it very much, and find
your musings particularly interesting, though I rarely have time to respond.

Mary Ellen Foley
