As in Yellowstone the crust in the areas of the mudpots should not be walked on. The heat is destabilizing the ground and is dangerous. Walking around those things could be the last thing you do.
If the smell is from the Salton Sea to SF then the amount that it would take to permeate that area indicates a large amount of magma rising toward the surface. Expect another round of tremors towards SF.

Well I;m officially smelling something now. Smells like fertilizer to me. Nobody near to me that I can see has fertilized.
I'll keep you posted, I am near Palmdale CA. Pretty strong right now, gonna go look to see if it's explainable.
Editing my post to say, I might be smelling things. I smell it in the house, but not outside, (save the jokes!). Let's chock this up to power of suggestion for now. (but it is strong!)edit on 12-9-2012 by SunnyDee because: (no reason given)
Sure you can do it.....send them to Montana....immediate job creation. GOBAMA

Just how do you find sanitary shelter for 10 million plus how do you feed them.
The easy answer is 'you don't.'
If you ever get a warning it would be too little too late. Add this to the co-incidents with the Mexican quake where 'they just happened' to have a quake drill on the very day of the quake and I start getting very suspicious.
METHANE WHAT IS METHANE?
Methane is an odorless, colorless flammable gas. It is used primarily as fuel to make heat and light.
It is also used to manufacture organic chemicals.
Methane can be formed by the decay of natural materials and is common in landfills, marshes, septic systems and sewers.
Methane can form an EXPLOSIVE mixture in air at levels as low as 5 percent.
You can smell leaking methane only when commercial gas utility companies add a chemical smell to it or when it mixes naturally with hydrogen sulfide, causing a "rotten egg" smell.
If you can smell it, the level may be too high to be safe.
Methane can also be found in coal gas. Pockets of methane exist naturally underground.
In homes, methane may be used to fuel a water heater, stove and clothes dryer. Methane evaporates quickly.
Therefore, most of the methane that ends up in lakes, streams, or soil is eventually released into the air.
However, methane that is formed underground and moves through soil can remain unchanged for many years.
Hydrogen sulfide (British English: hydrogen sulphide) is the chemical compound with the formula H2S.
It is a colorless, very poisonous, flammable gas with the characteristic foul odor of rotten eggs.
It often results from the bacterial breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, such as in swamps and sewers; this process is commonly known as anaerobic digestion.
It also occurs in volcanic gases, natural gas, and some well waters.
The human body produces small amounts of H2S and uses it as a signaling molecule.
Costa Rica’s earthquake experts are suggesting more study of the theory that one might be able to smell a coming earthquake. The Red Sismológica Nacional took note of a study that says the level of ozone in the air increases dramatically in the processes leading up to an earthquake.
