My dad just informed me that he is taking all of us....me, my hubby, two kids, brother and SIL to ANTARCTICA next December!!!

After years of exhaustive legal battles and hundreds of hours of detective work, I am pleased to announce that my long-lost Mother, from whom I was separated at birth by an unfortunate clerical error at the hospital, is no other than Crazyolis!!! MOM!!! I missed you Mom!

crossing fingers...

cant even mention it on Facebook, cus my son is my friend and I dont want him to know about it yet

Actually, you can. When you write the post, click the little lock before you hit share. It will give you options for who can and cannot see the post. I got my parents a Groupon to their favorite restro for xmas, but still wanted to post it in case someone might buy one through my link (and someone did!). I just excluded mom and dad from the post! :)

That is AWESOME news!!!

I've been eyieng a trip there for the past few years. I've wanted to find a geocache on the 7th continent. I wonder f there are LB there to find too - hmm. The only thing holding me back has been the cost. I've figured that the ballpark price is about $10,000. When did your dad win the lottery??? Then again, as they say - You can't take it with you.

Is there any chance that you could share the cruise info? Is it a National Geographic cruise or another company?

Sure...
We are going with Tauck. www.tauck.com

My dad had talked to a travel agent and she has had great experience with this company. I wont lie to you...it will be very expensive. But very worth it, from what I hear. Dad has a friend that went a few years ago and said it was phenominal. Long long trip getting there but so totally worth it.

The "season" is very short....December, January and Feb.

Its funny, he has always wanted to go, then my kids talk all the time about wanting to see the penguins and polar bears (though sadly they are at the other pole!). He thought about taking them, but figured they would have to fly to GA (we are in NY) by themselves or he would have to fly up here to get them. Then sort of thought he really cant take them to a trip like that without taking us(the parents). Then figured he couldnt take one of his kids and not the other...so his single trip turned into a trip for 7! But it will be fun doing it as a family. (sorta...my SIL is a bit of a prima donna when it comes to traveling and I swore I would never travel with her again)

But he was very successful in his career, extremely smart in his investing and can afford it. And also goes on the thought of you cant take it with you.

Check out the website...they have a lot of cruises around the world...If I won the lottery i would do them all!!

Thanks for the info. That is the cheapest I've seen lately. Its good that they get you on the land. I've seen cruises where they sit in a bay and thats as close as they get.

Have a blast!

Yep! You should try it sometime. It's sometimes fun to dredge up an old post and reply to it like it's brand new. *nodding* =)

I click the "Bookmark" link, then whenever I use the "My Bookmarks" link under the "Boards" menubar option, I can review all of the posts I've bookmarked. They're mostly filled with suggestions for AQ that I'm interested in implementing someday.... at least my list is. I suppose others use it for other reasons. =)

Yeah, and while you're at it, you guys should go update your links in the Wassa widget.

Seriously the best trip I have ever been on. If I could afford it I would go again tomorrow!

It was so peaceful, (except for the honking of the penguins), clean, (except for the penguin poop) so exhilarating! Beautiful, unpopulated...again except for those penguins!

They were so cute to watch, they just didn't have a care in the world. They came right up to us and checked us out.

sadly no.... we did build a snowman on an iceburg! And eat Antarctic snow, just so we could say we did. Of course we followed the no color no eat rule!! down there you don't eat pink snow!
