Hi all! Thank you so much for all the advice I have already received. Now I have another question - I have a ton of camping gear, but would like some suggestions on what I need to bring for camping trips besides the obvious. I have found one company, Nomadic Adventures and Tours out of Muscat (saw them on Pilot Guides' Arab and Gult States DVD) and am wondering if anyone has dealt with them, or has any other suggestions? I am a trekker as well as a camper. Thanks!!
