I never did get to go Yellowstone in the years that I was working Stateside - did pretty much everything else, but regret not seeing this incredible natural park.

To be honest, I would not feel very safe taking my family there currently because of the seismic activity and the upswelling in certain areas of the Caldera/s. It is such an immense volcano that it would take hours to drive out of it if a crisis did occur. No... I think I will remain in Tennesee and the adjacent states this year (look out USA The Keithisco Family Roadtrip starts 15 Oct!! Get those ribs ready, and the Catfish :clap: ) - unless Lookout Mountain and Chattanooga become listed as a "Super Volcano"!! :unsure2: :no:

Actually one of the safest place from Yellowstone would be Denver according to some scientists

If that thing is the size of the Yellowstone one, then a "warning system" is pointless, unless they have a way to evacuate the entire planet.

They should rather spend the money to give everyone a nice bottle of Chianti to enjoy the last minutes of life on earth.

every time I go to Italy and head out on the autostrada I can't go fast enough to get by Naples and Vesuvius.I do not trust that mountain one bit. my relatives live in the south but I am certain they would also be affected by any eruption. Sometimes things should be left alone unless there is a certanity that drilling would not cause an eruption. No guarantees!

I don't understand how this one blowing could lead to the others going as well... :unsure2:

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde
