Yet another reason to avoid the Big Island, er, Texas.

Hey, REW, here's another one to add to your Texas Defamation League list: lava.

Thompson has even ridden his motorcycle across red, flowing lava in the past. "It probably isn't hotter than a road in Texas," he said.
Lava makes final push to sea, Big Island prepares for crowds


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
