$8K for a trip to Antarctica with Harvard Alumni

In my dreams, I could afford to join a trip like this.  Someday, man.


Antarctica on Corinthian II 
December 10–22, 2009 

Join James McCarthy, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Biological Oceanography in the Museum of Comparative Zoology, on a cruise through the ice-packed channels of Antarctica. Enjoy picturesque glaciers and mountains asCorinthian II traverses the Beagle Channel. From aboard the ship's fleet of Zodiacs, make new discoveries each day exploring the majestic Antarctic Peninsula, rich in wildlife. Observe the nesting habits of Gentoo, Chinstrap, and Adelie penguins, and admire minkes, humpbacks, and orcas as they cavort in the sparkling waters.

I would love to go to Antarctica one day. I'm not sure if i can deal with the boat ride through, it's supposed to be pretty rough
Have you actually met any Harvard alumni? The ocean would be icy cold but the ship would be hot - like a living hell. All that ego in one place would surely melt the ice.
Dude, I am a Harvard alumna.  -____-
For $8k I'd rather go to the North Pole, Everest, or Kilimanjaro. Really liked your Portland pics, btw.
it's my dream too.
