Day 702: more lava adventures

Day 702:

There’s ore under the lava lake.

I know because I started by trying to dig out ore that was south of the lava lake and discovered the ore vein ran right under the lake.

In most places, I’m still protected by a good layer of dirt. But in a few the lava is leaking out of its caldera and dripping into the space I’m digging.

It’s…. nerve wracking.

And yes I know that I could just avoid it. I probably should just avoid it. No point getting killed for some ore.

On the other hand, I’ve been here 700 days, no use not getting killed for some ore.

(This may be the wrong attitude to take, but I’m in a duck-it kind of mood today.)
