Default Just Booked a "Land Cruise"

We just booked our tour to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada to see the Polar Bears. The trip isn't until late October 2009 but we wanted to get a spot during peak season. This won't be a cruise but we are looking forward to time in the tundra buggy photographing the bears.

Wow, I didn't even know you could do that sort of thing. I can't imagine how fascinating that will be. I am so excited for you!

Marc, my husband did that a few years back on a cross-Canada train trip.
He and his brothers rented a truck and went out to see the polar bears.
He says he hopes you get closer than they did, they only saw them from miles away...

p.s. Churchill Man. in Oct.....bring your parka!

Congratulations on your land trip booking, Marc. Since you always take great photos, I'll be looking forward to seeing the Polar Bears through your camera lens. What a great experience for you!
