Saturday: TOO Close!

Sometimes ya gotta wonder about people...



That's an amazing video but you wouldn't find ME within miles of where this video was shot (the footage was taken from a drone).  Volcanoes can kill you DEAD.

  1. While in Hawaii, visited Volcano National Park. Hotter than blue blazes when we went during the day and not much fun. After dark, however, absolutely spectacular...Big Jets of lava streaming out into the Ocean, cooling off so fast they turned into Pumice then were caught by the waves and crashed ashore where they were beaten into black sand. Total life span from molten lava to black sand...about 10 minutes. Loved it.

    1. I've seen Volcano NP on teevee and the footage was impressive. That said, I have zero desire to see it up close and personal.

  2. Reminds me of the Top Gear episode where they drove too close to the caldera of a volcano and their tires (excuse me, tyres) melted.

  3. A fraternity brother of mine from Orlando while in HS vacationed in Costa Rica and climbed one of those big-assed major ones drunk (can't recall which one--they're about 7 major ones IIRC) and somehow managed to fall off the rim and roll down the interior side. Broke (only) his collar-bone. LOL!

    (PS: Now I remember, his roommate in Military School was from Costs Rica--that's why he was there--visiting with roommate & family)

    (PPS: My guys biological Father was a WW II Maj B-17 Sq CO who was KIA--his step-father an Orlando stockbroker who was a character and all-round good-guy as well)
