    Thanks for asking Robin. Its on the other side of the island from me and about 250km away.
    When I get more time I will post up about it as there are some disturbing facets about what happened.......At the moment I am working on the charter boat 4-6 days a week and dont get much time to post up.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    And quite some distance from where Alec is.
    A bad situation though.
    The police here  are saying tonight[ NZ Time] that they will go in tomorrow to try and recover the bodies of the eight that are missing.
    It will not be a walk in the park.

    Alec glad to hear all y'all are out of harm's way. Volcanoes are not your friend when active. I don't understand that fascination with stuff that can kill you without warning. Some things should be watched from a great distance.
    And what ojr said about recovery of bodies is right; that will be tough on the recovery team, in more ways than one.
    Any new funny fishing stories to share happen lately?

    which is like 45 gallons to the hectare for those of us in the US.

    Glad y’all are ok, and prayers out to those affected.
