tachyon Ok, this trip is sadly something that can't be left until the last minute. Some of us need to book time off work and all that jazz. So I'm probably looking at going in November 2011. I can't clarify specific dates yet because we really need to agree on an itinerary and budget. I'd like to have this sorted out by March so I can sort out flights etc., so if anybody other than Cheeze wants in, let us know here WHEN you can go, and what your BUDGET is (roughly). Then we can look at ships and itineraries accordingly. I think the diving is probably off though. I can only find one boat that does it, and it requires all sorts of additional certifications and previous diving experience and for you to own all your own polar rated gear. And my gear isn't polar rated. So that's out, at least for me.
