All right everyone, lets turn HellZiggy into Frozen Sharon!

Despite all my traveling earlier this spring, I really don't get to travel much. I have NEVER left North America. Until June 2004 I had never left the United States! My total international travel is one day trip to Vancouver, BC, Canada and about 48 hours in Toronto, ON, Canada. As a kid looking at travel posters & wallpapering my room with them I always assumed that when I was a grown-up I'd be able to go to all the fantastic places. Unfortunately I've never been able to afford to.

I became obsessed with Antarctica after discovering mcpenguin's LJ back in 2005 or 2006. He even agreed to host Moose at McMurdo Base for a visit. That was awesome enough in it's own right, but then mcpenguin got to spend time at both the actual South Pole and the West Antarctic Ice Shelf! Honestly, I love the pics of Moose on the South Pole even more than the pics of Moose with James Marsters. That says a lot!

Quark Expeditions had a contest last fall that I tried to win. Out of over 500 entrants I got enough votes to come in 22nd. This time I want to make it to the top 5! Unlike the last contest that was determined solely by the number of votes, this time they will look at the top 5 and choose the winner from those.

I'm currently in 39th place and less than 400 votes will get me to the top 5.

You do have to register to vote, and it is one vote per valid email. Quark doesn't sell the addresses for spam, and they only send about one a month that is easy to opt out of.

I'm also going to be blogging about the contest over at Frozen Sharon
