I can understand how professional guides, sponsored by firms like North Face can spend each year on expeditions to Antarctica or the Hindu Kush, but there are many individuals who post that seem to find the $40,000 to go to the Polar Regions, or $60,000 to try ascents in Tibet, or other remote areas.
Between working in logging to pay my way through college, raising a family, military service, and being an educator for thirty two years I never could find more than three weeks at a time to be off climbing, and never enough money to take off to anywhere outside the U.S. and Canada.

Didn't have any particular person or persons in mind Scott, but getting to places like Baffin Island and Antarctica do cost big bucks.
With all the people lined up to go to Everest the fees are extreme both in Nepal and Tibetan China and other 8,000 meter peaks are becoming expensive to.

The big issue that most have not addressed is how you get the time for extended 4-6 weeks trips
