Re: Ambrym Volcano expedition

Geoff Mackley was in Turangi a few years ago and I've been kicking myself ever since that I didn't take the time out for a yarn with him. I reckon he's got one of the most interesting jobs going. i truly am jealous of you going on this trip. Hope you guys have an awesome time bro, really looking forward to seeing the pictures etc.

Geoff Mackley's Site Directory
just got back from the trip-amazing experience, we camped on th crater rim for 8 days with a 600m drop into the lava lake below a couple of metres away. The lava lake is about 2-3 football pitches in size and the total crater is jut mindblowingly big! The noise from the lava is deafening an it spurts about 100m straight up-unbelievable the power of nature at it's rawest. The pics and vid are cool but still nothin like being there-I had a great time but the sulphur wrecks ya gear went through 2 cinchs, 6 crabs 2 ropes and a treemtion harness but who cares, what a trip

How cool is that?
Well, er not 'cool' in one sense of the word, but you know what I mean.
To get an opportunity to do something that 99.9% of peeps never could or would - respect!
