i guess this will be what replaces african big game hunts as the big adventure vacation. sounds scary and dangerous to me. i could also think of alot of other uses for that much money!

This one's been around for a while but when we first found it there was lively discussion during our Wednesday AM meetings about starting one up for real.

I found this on Stumbleupon a few weeks ago, sent it to a friend but couldn't find any record of it in my histories, so had to hunt it down through Google. The 'testimonials' are great, and something of a giveaway.

I'm w/ expat. I'm committed to Bermuda for my next holiday, but I know of a couple of captains who would gladly take a group of us...
