This may be too easy (which we should be able to live with). It is not Boston or London and it relates to my son (who will appreciate it even if no one else does).

Ice, but not alcohol, was involved. A lot of ice.

You and saltydog appear to be on to #32. Anyone else? No one has spilled much about where it is so far.

Regarding #33, any clues on that scenic coastal area?

Well, lessee recent history? Tornado hit the Triangle Town , but more anciently, the good captain almost went the way of the Croc Hunter. See those J24's in the satellite shot? I think that's the Saltydog at the helm of the lead yacht. Not exactly "coast". But definitely shore. Western.

Bretz's Flood. And the biggest waterfall in the history of the planet. Portland under 400 feet of water (although before Portland existed as a city, of course).

My son is spending his summer at the Pacific Northwest National Lab. I told him to listen for rushing water.

I actually clicked on them and should have remembered, when I was posting later, to note that you got the thing. And that was an interesting way of saying it. cool

What In The World Happened Here? XXXIII (33) (not 32)

Too easy a quiz for the old salt!

May as well load up on many more clues for others.

The Captain would not have come by J24 but by shallop.
Greenery in the first picture might be Jimson Weed.
The Captain could have warned Steve Irwin.

I always thought that (captain's) name was an obvious alias.

Maybe the final post on "32":

If I recall correctly, that Ice Age cartoon movie had an ice dam break catastrophe. I wonder where they came up with that idea? Ironic.

More interesting info: Iceland's recent 'mega-flood', The November 1996 jökulhlaup

Closer to home, ice age megafloods affected Lake Tahoe, flowing out through the Truckee River over the Reno-Sparks area. Evidence has shown Lake Tahoe rose between 90 and 600 feet at various times due to glacial dams.

And yet closer, although I can't find a reference, I was told by a friend once of an ice dam break on the south fork of the Kaweah River near Three Rivers that uprooted giant sequoias and washed them miles downstream.

Awright youse guys, listen up! Y'all can do better keeping track of which WITWHH yer writin' 'bout.

Whenever you post a reply, observe the "Subject" of the reply. You have the power to change the text in the subject line, just like you can post anything you want. ...just like I have on this post.

...or easier: If you "Reply" to any post with the desired subject title, then that title will be propagated.

Unnerstand?

Thanks -- I had to get this off my chest. (Maybe I won't have to go in and try to straighten things out so often.)

...And the first person replying to THIS post without fixing the subject line gets an "F" for the day! grin

Edit: OMG, Wagga! I give up. mad

Googling "donnelly ridge flood visalia" gets you this from the waggapedia.

Ah, look at the large boulders at Lone Pine Camp.

Definitely a jokulhlaup created the canyon from the Meysan Lakes area and brought down those long boulders with it on slabs of ice and debris.

After that cataclysm, the waters continued to flow explaining the sedimentary formation of smoothed rocks near Lone Pine Creek close to town.

Take a gander next time when in town.

Looks like a bridge. Probably across from a first-rate university but named for a second-rate one.

364.4 * ORS +/- an ear

P.S. I see the connection between 100000 and XXXII more clearly than XXXIV.
