That's gotta be 200 acres.
At least partially hollowed out.
Submarine access on the far side.
Comes with goons.
All you need now is sharks fitted with 'lasers'

Looks like hugel beds running down the side of the inner boil.

Ken,

I don't think this is near Missoula, Paul might not like it because of that?

I don't know where this is, just came across it. Be sure to right click, View Image, so you can zoom in.
It has a certain mix of beauty and danger, ideal for an evil plan.
It may be that the entire island floats, deliciously evil.

Wow, according to that link the volcanic activity was mentioned in Edo period records. Reminds me of Paul's Just Enough book review podcasts.

We recorded a podcast yesterday and the paulcano was mentioned.

If it isn't near missoula, maybe we can look into moving it?

It's probably a few USDA hardiness zones warmer than the surrounding islands.

Some of the world's richest agricultural soils are in the lee of volcanoes.
Every mineral known to man has been spewed from the earth's bowels surrounding volcanoes.

If I lived there, I would want a fast boat!

From that photo, it doesn't appear to have any lava flow. Whatever is not shear rock seems to be lush green.
It appears to me, that a road has been built from the village (top/right) to a rich guano field (bottom/right).
I'll bet fishing is great there. That great mineralization probably also 'fed' the sea floor surrounding the island.

So does this mean you no longer think you'd need a fast boat? :-)
 
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
