  9. Hi from Novato, California USA
    In 1982 about Feb of that year I and another engineer visited this volcano Tangkuban Perahu will working for PT Radio up in the hill doing a SCPC project used for island communications… While there at this volcano my partner dare me to run across the face of this volcano… Together we did it and survived… Our company sponsor had a fit over this little jog of ours… Today I was looking for a 1982 – 1983 picture of the eruption that took place a few months after we did what what did… Any help would be kind… Thanks Bob

  10. Hi from Novato, California USA
    I heard that Tangkuban Perahu maybe waking up again… Any opinions out there to confirm this re-awaking new story I found?
    Also looking at the picture I found on the Internet, much looks the same except down in the crater… When I ran across there was a flat side and a rather muddy site with a big bubble of Mub poping fairly often to my left… As I ran by, I was 30 feet from that bubble or maybe less… Looking at the picture I see today, I confirm the bottom has change somewhat from last I saw it…
