My buddies are doing a trip that involves some desert camping and what not. When I talk to Lebanese and Jordanian friends they all say it's completely safe.
Definitely makes sense to post this on a Denver Broncos message board but what the hey... other than cougar life this is the only board I visit.
I was there but it was about 4 years ago There was a travel advisory in effect at the time but I meant nothing but wonderful people I spent most of my time there at the Dead Sea taking the natural health treatments I did take a trip to Petra and the hot springs that is on the way If you go I highly recommend spending time at all three places.
