end radio silence.


just got back to the US today. consider radio silence terminated (but it will be sorely missed by all).

in summary: flew to southern tip of Argentina, set sail in a Russian "acoustic research" boat, spent several days in Antarctic land and sea, stopovers at Ukrainian AND British science stations, crashed an abandoned whaling station in a sunken volcano, was in awe of majestic icebergs, in fear of ginormous glaciars, run amock by unpredictable weather, cruised around in Jacque Cousteau's Zodiacs, shared quite a few drinks with (mostly) funny Europeans, and even went to Uruguay.

oh and then there were penguins. LOTS of penguins:


...there were a few seals, whales, and assorted albatrosses as well.

and as if that wasn't enough, there was also quite a large pillow fight:

...but that was MUCH later.

it will be about a week before i get my pics posted (3000+ taken to be sorted through, and a few friends' videos to share), so stay tuned. in the meantime, enjoy some sci-fi geekout.


coming soon:

    Now that you're back in the US. Get your free pop from Dr. P they promised for the G'n'R release they promised! Dr.Pepper extended the free pop deadline to 6pm today, but the response has been so overwhelming that I can’t get on the website. And instead am on the phone with CS at 1-800-696-5891. Processing the good old fashioned way. Now all I have to do is wait 4-6 weeks for that tasty goodness.

  2. interesting turn of events for Dr.P + GnR. i think the time it would take to get my free Dr.P far exceeds the opportunity cost of the time wasted though...i'll just go buy one.
