Going Back to Antarctica!

Running Zodiacs in this amazing environment was one of my favorite activities down in Antarctica.  Although, walking around the penguin colonies, or taking a hike up an old volcano was also really cool.  Heck, who am I fooling, it is all amazing!

So I’m honored to say Cheeseman’s Ecology Safaris has hired me to return!  It is going to be a wonderful trip that will also include the Falklands, South Georgia and the South Orkney Islands..  Looks like many of the staff from last year’s trip will be returning, including a long time Alaskan friend of mine Hugh Rose who again will be the Expedition Leader.  He does a wonderful job as leader – not a lot of people have 15 years of guiding experience down there like he does.  Little did I know when I meet Hugh aboard a Kenai Fjords Tour almost 20 years ago how that chance meeting would impact my life so many years later!

You can read more about the trip here:  Cheeseman’s Antarctica Trip.  I  believe it is almost sold out.

As a side note, the gentleman taking my photo on the back of the Zodiac is my friend Rawdon who will be joining me on my bear tour for the third or fourth summer in a row!

    Oh, if I was only made of money! That sounds like an amazing trip!
    I do hope to get up for another bear trip in the next year or two though :)

    I almost never leave responses, however i did some searching and wound up here Going
    Back to Antarctica!. And I do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it only me or does it give the impression like some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I’d like
    to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Could you list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
