Seriously, two nights ago Siri sent me past warning signs (…your own risk) up a series of switchbacks to the top of a plateau in the rain at night. totally deserted.

And then, right before the switchbacks, my wife asked if I’d be able to steer or brake if the engine stopped.

No. No I couldn’t.

Kept going (no other choice) and went slowly down to ground, then eventually to a far away gas station. But, for a couple of hours, it looked like our options were all horrible. Icelandic roads have no shoulder, so driving off would’ve flipped our car. Stopping meant someone would ram us in the dark. And heading down switchbacks without brakes or steering…well…

 not much to hide behind if you want privacy in that neck of the woods. In fact there are no woods.
Then again there's nobody there except the odd sheep getting blown about in an arctic gale.

well you can survive just about anything, except lava
and maybe a pyroclastic cloud
signs you might be in danger when next to a volcano?
eruptions and proximity to lava
a nasty screaming hot cloud of ash bearing down on your 20
not sure about the old icelandic "lava knows if you're a virgin legend"
you may want to stop and boink in the area (just to be sure)

btw, the authors of that initial paper were heavily criticised by subsequent studies, which range from virtually no risk, to tiny tsunamis through to 5 to 10 m waves, presuming it even happened in our life time which is extremely unlikely. 
As I understand it, they used a linear model where the energy doesn't dissipate with distance instead of a point source model, where the waves will decrease rapidly over distance.

This island might be a better historical comparison.

thanks! i'm aware
i have a tsunami plan (does that make me some sort of freak?)
it's basically my hurricane plan with a twist
a super serious concreto parking garage by my house
that multi-story garage is behind a massive concrete hotel
at first warning i'll probably have at least six hours
i load a couple of cases of water, a small glut of  sardines, dogfood, a suitcase and a bugout bag (we won't speak about the contents) and about forty cans of beanie weenies

then i drive 150 yards into the garage to an upper story
i scurry back to my place, gather any extras, doom scroll for as for a bit, grab my other half, my dog, my spear gun and hike 150 yards back to my spot
some variables?
i'm six miles from the beach
plus we have some barrier islands about thirty miles off shore
and the intercoastal waterway to absorb some of that energy

i'm open for some suggestions/improvements





sounds good to me, given that the tsunami might only be 8" tall. But yeah, in the unlikely event of ...  maybe add an inflatable boat to your stash. I always thought a strong Zorb would be ideal.

this intrusion is worth keeping an eye on. 

Bear in mind it is a subject that automatically triggers massive media hype.
That said, it is still a very steep and large volcanic edifice that has developed a large crack down the middle.

The rapid cooling of the lava makes me think the air temp going down that mountain is mighty low. Nice view for sure, thanks again.


When you are talking about 1200 C lava, the difference of a few tens of degrees in air temperature isn't that significant. Things stop glowing below ~525 C. I'm amazed at how far the glowing flows go in the narrow channels. 

A couple of geologist friends of mine had contacts in Hawaii and got to go out and sample one of the flows. I'm terminally envious.
