Julius' Travels in the South is one of my favorite blogs. He doesn't update often, but it is a treat to see it pop up in my reader. He works for months at a time in Antartica and has tales of life in the isolated cold. Plus, he has great penguin pics. Check out the most recent one - potty humor in the Deeeeeep South.
I probably got his link originally from one of you. Consider this the best props I could deliver, as I don't remember how I found Julius.
