I think it makes all the difference. One, the 1750 Cascadia Quake, two, the 1790's Small Pox Plague, and thirdly, rampant venereal diseases in the
surviving Indians at the mouth of the Columbia River, when Lewis and Clark arrived in 1805. The way this worked out, the Spanish collapsed from
Sitka, Ak. back down to California's Missions. It was kind of the "Perfect Storm" for those Spaniards and their Indian trading partners.
I was once wafted in the Spirit all along both the Oregon Trail to the Whitman Mission, and then along the Santa Fe trail to present day El Monte, CA.
But it was deserted back then, in the Nineteenth Century. Plus the Whitmans were massacred by some half breed Indians, at their mission, a few miles
west of Walla Walla, WA. I took this as a warning about problems coming to the West Sides of Washington and Oregon. I.O.W.'s, don't sell sea shells
by these sea shores.
The Cascadia quake is over due, but the Hilima Slip next door to Kilauea on the big Island, may become the culprit for both Nineteenth Century trails'
terminouses. I don't think the Cascadia faults would wipe out both the PNW and Cali, at the same time. But the combination could possibly wipe out
our Pacific Coastlines. Or not, depending on which catastrophe came first. Needless to say, I'm happy, living here in Idaho. Mt. St. Helens
cr$%pped all over us in 1980, but we've fully recovered today. What just happened in Palu, Indonesia is a PITA. Quakes, Tsunamis, and then their
island's volcano blows it's top.
We could be hit with all of the above, simultaneously, as we're also living on the Ring of Fire.
