Who wants to come visit?

If anyone's able to travel on super-short notice, and felt like coming to visit this little slide of weirdness that I call home, a friend of mine stumbled across a "Black Friday" sale on two of the cruise ships that will be visiting here this summer.

Quark Expeditions will be having a 2-for-1 sale on cruises sailing December 15th and January 13th, both are just under two weeks in length and will tour the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula, including a stop by Palmer Station, where I'm living.  But to be fair, even with the sale, it's not exactly what you'd call affordable.  Especially when considering that airfare down to the embarkation point will probably run a couple thousand dollars itself.

You'd have to buy between 7:30 a.m. EST on Thursday, November 22nd and 9:00 p.m. EST on November 27th to take advantage of the sale.  Aside from getting a job here, it's probably the easiest way to visit the Antarctic!

When to buy: Between 7:30 a.m. EST on Thursday, November 22nd and 9:00 p.m. EST on November 27th.
