CH is a short drive away from WMSBG ???

Yup. I guess I'll be there sometime within the next couple of days. But if I'm already driving I might just drive a drop further to say hello and pick up a copy at the printer  ;)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

For the Yiddish speaking crowd, as per @Something Fishy there's an interview (with pictures ;)) in דער מאמענט that's covering this trip. Go grab one!

So what months is best time for Antarctica, December? Jan/Feb? what are your thoughts on last minute half prices buying the cruise tickets in Ushuaia last minute? I'm googling it is a big hit or miss and don't mind to sit around Ushuaia for a few days to save $5000.

And after reading some reports from SF I think Falkland Islands is not to be missed when choosing a cruise.
