A bulging lava dome can't be a good thing.

Isnt there supposed to be some rising bubble thing in Yellowstone, and its supposed to explode and kill like everyone in the middle of the country or some such shit?

It won't be nearly as bad as the 1980 one (hell, there's not enough volcano to do that)! I remember 1980, I was 4 years old at the time and had to wear a mask because of all the ash in the air, and I live 3 hours away from it at the time.

Do a Google for 'Yellowstone Super Volcano' and you'll get lots of hits... National Geographic had a program on the Yellowstone super volcano last week. They did a 'what if' and basically, we're all real dead... the nasty death from Kashin-Beck's disease due to inhaling ash would kill half of North America...

Micro-quakes are also on the increase at Yellowstone this week. Not as many as at Mt St Helens, but about a 150% increase.

Since most agriculture and food production will probably be wiped out, I'm personally planning on it by making a list of which neighbors I'm going to eat in what order.

After I'm done iwht my neighbors, I'll be going after the free-range and feral humans.

Do you have any recipes or cleaning/skinning advice on this species? Also, whats a good caliber for hunting these "neighbors" you speak of? Do they drop pretty easy or will I have to do some tracking?

Here's a graphic of how big the destruction *could* be (see the "ashfall from 2 million year old Yellowstone eruption" part):



Plan accordingly. However, I'm no seismologist by a long shot!

All I know is, I was 9 when it blew the first time, may 18, 1980. Watched it live from my grandmothers house. This time, I am just up river in OR and will watch it again, with my kids.

If this one goes off, we're fucked!

BTW, I read on one volcanic web page that since 1980, there has been a 400% increase of volcanic activity world wide.
It was a few years ago, I am going to try and find it and post a link.

I think you can prepare the meat pretty much like any other - but I have heard warnings not to eat the brain (it's no laughing matter ). As with other animals, I'd be sure to get the fully grown healthy ones - and avoid the ones that are all old and gristly. Also avoid the really large ones, since many of them are mostly fat (unless you are running out of soap, candlewax or grease). Not sure about skinning and cleaning, but I hear that Afghan and Pathan tribesmen have developed various technicques for that.

Extensive research conducted on this species (sometimes called "wars") suggests that they can be hunted with a variety of calibers, and many have been used throughout history. You cannot go wrong with .308 or .30-06, especially at longer ranges, but .223 should be fine for most. As usual, shot placement is more important than particular caliber.

How difficult they are to hunt and track depends on the variety. The urban ones are ridiculously easy to find, and will likely just stand and stare at you. Suburban ones are similar, but might try to hide in Home Depots or movie multiplexes. The rural variety of the species are likely to be difficult to track, and may be quite dangerous.

Crater Lake is in the former Mt. Mazama's caldera. The lake fills the caldera with an island poking up. To get an idea of just how powerful the explosion was that took the top off of Mt. Mazama, you can look to the Columbia Gorge around Arlington, OR, and see a think ash band where I-84 cuts through the basalt. This ash layer, now covered with additional layers of basalt, is anywhere from almost nonexistant to tens of feet think, depending on location, and is easily seen when driving down I-84 into Arlington. This ash is believed to be from Mt. Mazama's explosion.

The ash band, where near the highway, has been coated with what appears to be gunite. I presume ODOT did this to prevent erosion onto the highway. However, if you look aways off the highway into the basalt ravines above the highway you can see the actual color of the ash...which is sort of a beige or tan.

I'm guessing that Arlington is about 300-350 miles north of Crater Lake. (Crater Lake is not far from the Kali state line and Arlington is actually about 1 mile from Washington State. IIRC, this event is believed to have taken place only 5K-6K years ago.

If true, this makes St. Helens look like mighty small potatoes.

The morning it blew, I was supposedly on the last plane outta Spokane before they closed the airport down due to ashfall. By the time we took off, a light ash was coming down. Spokane actually didn't get much ash; however, Ritzville, WA, only about 60-70 miles SW of Spokane, got a ton...like between 4-6" IIRC.

My flight was from Spokane to Boise; however, after we took off we headed directly east until we made Missoula, MT, and then took a SW route to Boise.
