Just take out the warning signs and rename it Darwin Park.

That's pretty much what half the Michigan highways look like now after the winter from hell.

Yeah, you would be spared the insta-death, but the coming decade of winter and collapse of the mid-west breadbelt would probably make you wish you hadn't.

You underestimate cptjeff's capacity to go cannibal.


His recipe for bbq'ed baby is to die for.

Also, I get front row seats if Yellowstone does pop. I don't have to deal with the mess.

Percise1: bobothemagnificent: Gaylord Fister: It would be hilarious if Yellowstone would blow, just to see Americans try to flee into Mexico.

Got news for ya: I'll be doing 1 of 2 things.  First, my preferred method, would be stealing, refurbishing, and then launching a space shuttle.  Second, failing that, I'll be stealing my mother and stepfather's sailboat and sailing to the U.K...because going EAST, instead of WEST (where said volcano is) makes more sense.   That is, of course, assuming people can get past the giant ash cloud that would bury the western U.S. and Northern Mexico to get to the rest of Mexico.  If I want a really nice climate year round, I'll go to the U.S. Virgin Islands because that, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Diego Garcia, and American Samoa are going to be the only intact U.S. territories.

Overall, I'm not worried.  Geologic activity is always shifting, and in hot spots like Yellowstone and Kilauea are constantly changing and unstable to some degree.  Believe me, there will be plenty of warning signs that the Yellowstone volcano is about to erupt.  I imagine the weeks of constant large scale earthquakes in the region would be the a big clue.  However, when every wild animal in the park runs for its farking life, then you might want to start checking out housing on other continents.
Irony: Prevailing winds are west to east, so actually the west coast will be in better shape than the east coast.  Although the entire state of Wyoming is farked.  There are no signs of an eruption occurring, and recent studies have suggested the hot spot is actually cooling off, not growing.

Depending on where you live, the options might be less than you think. The unfortunate thing isn't really what happens in the first few weeks, it is the following years. Do a little studying if you want to know about something not worth worrying about. ;)


That's kind of what hit me about the refugee plans after I started researching Yellowstone- it doesn't matter where they put you in the event of a supervolcanic eruption.  It's pretty likely that you're going to die when the sun is blotted out for years and famine and plague sweep the face of the planet.  Sure, some folks will live, but them folks probably ain't gonna be you.

But hey, you know, why not send Argentina, Brazil, and Australia $100billion apiece anyways, right?

I was just in Yellowstone Park a week ago.  Very interesting and beautiful place.  Someone asked a Park Ranger, when is the volcano going to blow.  He responded, "not today".
