    Those are great pix, Emily. Tell me, is there a “ceremony” when you cross the Arctic Circle like the Navy has when you cross the equator? Hope there wasn’t, for your sake!

      What do they do in the Navy? Throw you overboard? :) They actually rolled out a red carpet for us to walk over. A tad silly, but amusing.

    Emily, I think they’ve actually toned down the ritual some through the years, but you go from “pollywog” to “shellback”, courtesy of King Neptune. Read about it here:

      Haha, that certificate is equally corny! Thankfully we had no condiments, vomit, or other disgusting things thrown at us while crossing. The nastiest thing we got were some pretty horrible outhouses (they’re not cleaned during the winter)… to my relief immense mountains of excrement don’t really smell bad when it is extremely cold.
