The folks are taking reservations now for a little trip to the south in Dec 2012/Jan2013. With a price tag between $12,500-$23,500 - this represents a $300 savings for early sign-up, but does not include airfare.......... Looks like fun!

Dear EarthCache Master,

GSA has an exciting opportunity to present to you: An invitation to participate in our 27 December 2012–20 January 2013 Southern Ocean cruise, “The Antarctic Peninsula and Scotia Arc: Tectonics, Climate and Life.”

As an EarthCache Master, you have a taste for outdoor adventure. In this fascinating and critical part of the globe — where the largest oceanic current, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, sweeps through the narrow Drake Passage between Tierra del Fuego and the Antarctic Peninsula — lies a unique interface of tectonics, climate and teeming life. Join us for an opportunity to discover or create one or more of the most mysterious and highly-prized EarthCache sites on Earth*.

The expedition is co-sponsored by The Geological Society of America in honor of our 125th Anniversary, and The Jackson School of Geosciences in the University of Texas at Austin. Planned in cooperation with the highly experienced Cheesemans’ Ecology Safaris, it will cater not only to geoscientists, but to all persons interested in the Earth system and its future.

Distinguished scientific leaders, Ian Dalziel of The Jackson School of Geoscience, Richard Alley of The Pennsylvania State University, Rob Dunbar of Stanford University, and Rudolph Trouw of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will lend unprecedented lecturing expertise to complement the Cheesemans’ experienced staff of wildlife, photographic and historical specialists.

We all hope that you will join us in what promises to be an unforgettable experience, and contribute your own varied background to lively discussion and debate at sea and in the field.

For more information, visit . Current pricing reflects a $500 discount to the first 30 participants. There are only a few discounted berths left. Start planning now for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

Director, Education & Outreach
The Geological Society of America

Paradise Bay on the Antarctic Peninsula, on the itinerary
Pendulum Cove on Deception Island, South Shetland Islands, visitation possible
Signy station, a British Antarctic Survey (BAS) station in the South Orkney Islands; visitation may be possible

I got that too and it gave me a good chuckle. Can't say that I'm willing to sell my house and all my posessions, plus take 3 weeks off of work for that trip, fabulous as it sounds. Smile
