P.P.S. I can't afford this but I'm willing to wash dishes one night a week on the trip, does that work?
sorry , but DDMS cant allow you to go on vacation together with dan for so long with no internet access.
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Good news @jj1000, seems like @Geshmak25 is sponsoring you to come :D
@jj1000  didn't convince you yet why its essential for him to come along? ;)   or he simply wasn't successful yet?

@Dan @Something Fishy Will we be guaranteed to see Polar bears in the south pole?
P.S. What is the cost? And will there be a daf yomi shiur? Will you be printing a tanya on the trip? Will the chef be shomer shabbos?

All fun aside, if indeed you have a way to pack a printer and ink (while I personally hate inkjet printers, toner is not ink, and if printing a book that needs to endure, you want to use ink) you should really consider printing a tanya there.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Already been done.
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.

But if you actually contribute to the printing, then you have a special חביבות to the Tanya that was printed there, and might encourage some learning.

ETA: Just noticed your location, are you located in Antarctica by any chance?  I would presume that's the ultimate MS Desert ;D

Why? I heard that some of those guys did a ton of MS down there by loading up their Buxx accounts and cashing out at the WF ATM. It's great when there are no eyes on your account for 10 months straight  :P

How long is one allowed to spend outside the ship for it not to "reset" the issue of boarding a ship within 3 days of shabbos?

Wow!

Couple that with a rare seminar, and this trip might not only pay for itself, but actually yield some handsome dividedends.

Some people care about ashkenas minyanim, other people care about printing tanyas in random places. Can't we all get along?

I don't think most people would decide to go or not to go somewhere based on the Nussach of the minyan alone. I've never heard of a Posek insisting on that. I'd be happy to see a source that says differently.

Not to mention that if one is concerned about potential Halachic issue, the lack of a real Tzeis for Motzei Shabbos is probably a more significant Halachic concern than whether the Shat"z will say Hodu before or after Baruch SheAmar.
