If this ever comes to fruition, count me in. I've been dying to go to Antarctica since forever.

I booked tickets last summer for a trip to alaska this summer. A trip like this would take serious planning and its never to early to start. I'm willing to invest time into planning it if people are interested.

I also wouldn't be able to go for another year and a half but I'd start planning now.

This guy said the boat reservation was around $10k though, that is a bit more than I can afford...

If its within the 2K range (not including airfare) I'd be game (don't get me wrong I'd be dying to go no matter what range, but that's what I can realistically afford as of now).

Ditto on all that. I also have a trip planned for this summer (either Alaska or Hawaii - still deciding).

And remember that the $10k was for a 3 week trip - a 7-10 day trip will (should?) be exponentially cheaper.

Thanks, can you share what you did? I'm still trying to figure out the best itinerary.

Maybe we can have an Anchorage DO  ;)

I think $2K is reasonable and I think I know one or two people who'd want to come as well.

Can we get a Wiki on who's attending?

For 2k +airfare I'm interested. Whether or not the timing will work remains to be seen...

I'd be in for up to $3K excluding airfare to see Antarctica.
$10K though...whoa!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Added to wiki. I think people should also say if they're coming with their spouses or not so that we could get a better idea of the amount of people.

What time of year? I'd have to know, so I can check my schedule...

+ Spouse. I think my wife would kill me if I went without her to Antarctica.

No specifics yet, just gauging interest to see if we should make real plans :D

Personally summer would be best for me, but it'll be winter down there so I don't know if it's feasible.

Aha, December 25th time should be good for me.

Won't kosher food be a big problem to figure out? I assume people on these trips can't bring much luggage with them, so food they get there?
