I saw the post the other day on OMNI about the existence of this forum and that picked my curiosity. So anybody willing to go? I took some preliminary information and it cost about 3000-4000$ for a 12 days, twin cabin expedition from USH. I would like to get a list of persons that are interested, if there is a significant amount I will try to get us a deal and let you know.
So please sign-up if you would probably participate, at around that cost, for an FT Antarctica DO in mid-january 2007. That seems to be the best time of the year to go, about 20+ hours of daylight and the temperature is not bad.
I'll probably be up for it. But it's a tad pricey, any lines on a decent deal?
It starts at about 3 000-4 000$ for a 12 days, twin cabin. My first post was a joke, but I have talked about it today with a friend and I would do it. The best seems to be in january-february, 20+ hours of daylight. Weather around 30-40 farenheits at that time. I will update my first post with a list of people that are interested. If I get a reasonable number of people that would be willing to go, I will try to get us a deal.
do you actually get to land on Antartica, or just look at it from a boat, or land on an island nearby?
What I would like to organize is on a boat of maximum 100 persons. There is a rule right now that no more than 100 persons may land at the same place in Antarctica. What we are looking for is about 5-6 days of landing opportunities with some easy to medium trekking.
