    Been rubbling for a week, although some thought Ruapehu would blow first.

    Well, I hope everyone (including yourself) is okay and unharmed!

    I'm over 900km away so I'm sweet, cheers!

    I have done the Tongariro crossing though and it would be pretty scary if the thing erupted while you were on it.

    Good to hear! Also, if I were there, I would crap myself.

    Apparently two small people were seen throwing a ring into it a few moments earlier...

    Glad it wasn't a huge eruption - New Zealand could do with some quiet times for a year or two :)
