Mr Cecil, I thought you were down in the weeds with the heavy metal. Instead you are swanning on the beach. Or this the long held dream of a FIFO spray tan franchise. Hope Nev is holding the fort for you.

Avid reader of the last thread but never got involved, figured now might be the time, some pictures of my new South Pacific home

First up an Active Volcano, tops out around 5000ft.


Then to really get things a bit hot, a Lava Lake...forgot my marshmallows...


Apologies for the lack of detail, been taking these with my mobile phone, should really invest in a decent camera sometime!!

Yeah, the lava one whilst looking impressive with the lakes there aren't a lot of explosions, or so i've been lead to believe!!! The other volcano not far away is the more active of the two!!

Plus we keep a good 1000' clearance from the top which is more likely around 2000' from the lava lakes itself!!

Trust me, the first time you stand on the rim of an active volcano that actually has explosions....you'll cr*p your pants, but you'll also appreciate it a bit more, 2000' is a reasonable distance for most Volcanos that aren't violently errupting!!
