Going to Antarctica

December 02, 2006

Back in December of 2003 I said:    (Q5P)

I want to go Antarctica.  T    (Q5Q)

in a posting entitled "I will go to Antarctica".    (Q5R)

On December 15th I fly south with friend Sean to hop a boat from Tierra del Fuego to the Antarctic Peninsula to spend nearly two weeks with seals, penguins and about 40 other people on what used to be a Russian research vessel. We'll ride around in Zodiacs, spending some portion of every day on the ice or land.    (Q5S)

Sublime.    (Q5T)

Holy. Crap. I'm jealous.    (Q5U)

An unrelated observation: When I came here to read this post and leave this comment, there was a picture over there from my wedding. What are the chances of that, I ask you!    (Q5V)

That is so awesome. You give me hope that I might make it to Antarctica some day.    (Q5W)

I can't wait to see your photos.    (Q5X)

Hey, have you read Neal Stephenson's, "Zodiac"?    (Q5Y)
