It so highly unlikely as to be not possible. First there's no way they made it around the cape, egyptian boat tech was not capable of making it in
those seas, niether was the tech of any seafaring people at the time.
Secondly the passage across panama is so impossibly harsh as to make it nearly impossible, as it was even in the 19th century.
So that leaves either they made their way across the indian and pacific oceans around and into the gulf of baja up the colorado and past the many
unpassable rapids to get to the grand canyon proper, through lands populated by many people hostile to outsiders.
Its as likley as atlanteans doing it.
Or they made it up the missisipi or brazos or rio grand or some river in the south to then trek 2000 miles across a continent of hostile people to dig
a catacomb in the grand canyon.
oh come on,
I could see AE's making it to north america, from the atlantic, as highly unlikely as it is.
But to haul a load of mummies and treasure to the grand canyon, to what end?
what could have possibly been their motivation.
Besides the mummies would not have survived the journey intact, mummies require EXTREMELY dry environments that no boat of the period could possibly
have provided. They would have rotted away long before they reached the grand canyon.
And there is no source for any of the salts required to re-mummify the remains, once they reached the new world, which would not have been possible
Besides the AE's never even made it to the headwaters of the river they lived on, so were supposed to believe they navigated around the world.
So yes im saying its impossible.
