So this is the Sarpik Ittuk, one of Quark’s ship. This is the boat I took on my 2nd Antarctic trip. I took this picture one morning when the bay was as quiet and still as it ever could have been. It was nicer than the Antarctic Dream and the company was much more professional. The expedition leaders were very interesting, informative, and some were kind of heroic! Below is a photo of them returning to the boat from land carrying the emergency supplies.

Here is the gang. Thi (Ice-T), Brian (King), Anita (Gentoo), Kevin (Punda) , and me (with the spider on my head).
