Project update: Voyage to Our Hollow Earth

In December 2003, I reported on Steve Currey's expedition to the hole at the top of the earth, which at the time was scheduled for June 26, 2005. But on May 6, 2004, the site rescheduled the trip for Jun 26, 2006 with no explanation. The reservation form reminds you that the 25% deposit is non-refundable.

Far be it from me to suggest that these people are just stringing their loyal following along, pocketing the $4000 deposit, with no intention of actually mounting the expedition. That would be patently unfair of me. I'm certain there's a perfectly reasonable and honorable explanation for the delay.

    I was really looking forward to some chat on this one – the moon landing/flat earth/hollow earth/Scientologist nutcases always crack me up.

    Though, I think calling a Russian nuclear icebreaker a ‘floating motel’ with ‘all the amenities’ might be funnier still…

    * Please note that if we are unable to find the Polar opening, we will be returning via the New Siberian Islands to visit skeleton remains of exotic animals thought to originate from Inner Earth.

    The other possibility is that he didn’t get enough takers to break even on the ice breaker to do it this year.
