23:45:36 <Kitt> Jim had to lean way back
23:46:08 <Kitt> nice view on static cam also
23:46:19 <BB> now how sweet is that: my husband just called from the office because he happened to see BH and didn't want me to miss it
23:46:45 <Kitt> that's very nice of him
23:47:09 <BB> yes, and he is not as crazy about it as I am
23:48:37 <Demetri> welp, goodnight all
23:48:50 <Kitt> we that was nice
23:48:59 <BB> very nice
23:49:02 <Kitt> now we can pay attention to fluffy
23:49:04 <Dave from B> Bye, Demetri
23:49:22 <Kitt> we are in it's windo
23:49:27 <BB> I have to go and feed the cat. She is very annoyed that I ran straight to the computer when I got home
23:49:28 <Kitt> window
23:49:34 <Kevin L> Anything good going on this morning?
23:49:38 <Dave from B> Morning, Kevin
23:49:44 <Kevin L> Hi
23:49:56 <Kitt> please tell me you just watched bee
23:50:29 <Kevin L> Bee?
23:50:46 <Kitt> Beehive
23:50:57 <Kitt> I even sent you a text
23:51:29 <Kevin L> Haven't turned on the phone yet.
23:51:42 <Kitt> Nooooo
23:51:44 <Kevin L> It was ns when I turned on the computer.
23:52:00 <Kitt> OK
23:52:18 <Dave from B> Well at least you got to see most of it
23:52:21 <Kevin L> Nice surprise. It did wake me up.
23:52:27 <Kitt> I was up early
23:52:51 <Kitt> son had a job interview at 6 AM
23:52:53 <BB> that's a relief, Kevin. I wasn't sure if you were kidding or still half asleep
23:52:58 <Kevin L> Maybe get two today.
23:53:08 <Kitt> would be nice
23:53:13 <Kevin L> I am still half asleep.
23:53:31 <BB> maybe both then :)
23:53:32 <Dave from B> Last 2 intervals have been a little shorter
23:53:50 <BB> Now I am really off to feed the cat, will be back around noon
23:54:09 <Kitt> I've been on since 526 and all I have seen is an Old Faithful until indy and bee
23:54:12 <Kevin L> Take care BB.
23:54:12 <Dave from B> Bye, BB
23:54:25 <Kitt> bye bb
23:55:32 <Kitt> well time for breakfast and work
23:55:36 <Kitt> enjoy the day
00:13:44 <Kevin L> Did you see Strokkur is back online Dave?
00:14:19 <Dave from B> I read the logs from yesterday. That is good news.
00:14:53 <Dave from B> How have the chickens been doing?
00:15:38 <Kevin L> Not bad. Getting about 3 eggs a day average.
00:17:48 <Dave from B> I'm guessing Lion is done already. Another short series
00:18:14 <Kevin L> Looks like some 4 legs
00:18:44 <Kevin L> Elk? I think Lion is getting back to "normal".
00:18:51 <Dave from B> First sighting of elk this year?
00:19:07 <Kevin L> First I have seen.
00:19:24 <Dave from B> I was hoping to see NG this year. Looking more and more like that's not going to happen
00:20:56 <Kevin L> I think you are right.
00:21:21 <Kevin L> At least having some elk around today will give me something to look at.
00:22:56 <Dave from B> We had to start with the main feature today. Tough act to follow.
00:23:46 <Kevin L> Yep. Another NoDoz day.
00:26:24 <Dave from B> Maybe a Griz Elk battle or more Giantess boils
00:27:41 <Kevin L> That would help.
01:00:52 <ynpvisitor67> ..
01:02:58 <ynpvisitor67> .
01:39:54 <Dave from B> OF 839 ie
01:48:09 <Dave from B> Looks like Turban 846 ie
01:53:20 <af> hi
01:53:33 <Dave from B> Hi ,af
01:54:02 <af> i eer you like your old name better
01:54:13 <Dave from B> BH went at 642. Maybe a late evening eruption
01:54:41 <Dave from B> Don't want to confuse anyone about the more experienced Dave S who you spoke about yesterday.
01:55:12 <ynpvisitor67> There are 2 other's with that name that I can think of.
01:55:42 <Dave from B> So, until I move to another city, I guess I'll stick with my old name
01:55:44 <ynpvisitor67> Last initial I mean, not name.
01:56:24 <Dave from B> When I went to school at the Univ of MT, there were 5 of us with the same name. That was fun, especially when it came to mail
01:56:26 <ynpvisitor67> you could do all 3 intials, that would be a coincidence if the other two had middle names similar to yours!
02:17:54 <Dave from B> Good Morning, Janet!
02:17:59 <Janet-working?> Good morning - I see I already missed Bee
02:18:28 <Dave from B> So early, we may get another one today...if we are lucky
02:18:59 <Janet-working?> This evening I should be around
02:20:55 <Dave from B> Grand should be in its window. Seems like we have been seeing some Turbans
02:31:53 <Dave from B> I see Pat had Aurum at 927 ie
02:33:51 <ynpvisitor67> .
02:54:53 <Janet-working?> BBL - errands.
03:01:10 <Dave from B> Kevin, You driving yet?
03:13:30 <Kevin L> of 1012
03:26:01 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
03:27:11 <Dave from B> Thought we would see Grand by now
03:27:43 <Kevin L> I would be happy with the elk.
03:27:51 <Dave from B> Must have went before bh this morning
03:28:09 <Dave from B> Did the elk move away already?
03:28:34 <Kevin L> I have n't seen anything moving down there.
03:29:27 <Dave from B> I saw some activity around 845-915. Thought it was Turban but only a guess. Not a lot of steam
03:30:31 <Kevin L> Thisnk steam will be light today. Already 53 degrees and humidity is 37%
03:50:36 <Dave from B> No Daisy or Plume recorded for today in GT
03:51:05 <Kevin L> I am tempted to head out to West for a pizza.
03:52:23 <Rich> Hi Kevin
03:52:29 <Rich> Morning Everyone
03:52:33 <Kevin L> hi
03:52:39 <Dave from B> Hi, Rich
03:52:47 <Rich> Hi
03:53:03 <Rich> Dave
03:53:07 <Dave from B> So, Kevin...what is your favorite West pizza?
03:53:09 <Kevin L> VERY slow day.
03:53:20 <Rich> g
03:53:43 <Dave from B> I see Castle minored at 950 per Jim
03:54:24 <Kevin L> I don't know. I always saty in the park and my wife takes the girls shopping and brings one back.
03:54:59 <Kevin L> The worst day at the basin is always better than the best day at West.
03:55:19 <Dave from B> Once we get to OF, we rarely leave the area unless we are going for a hike somewhere
03:56:28 <Rich> I '
03:56:47 <Kevin L> Same here. I don't even go to the Lower Basin or Great Fountain much anymore.
03:57:06 <Rich> I 'know' one pizza place I won't go back to - the one just outside the park first block of town on the right.
03:58:06 <Kevin L> The ones she brings back are usually good, but after a few days of Vienna Sausages and granola bars about anything would taste good.
03:58:45 <Dave from B> I would like to go back to the river Group and the mudpots in the LGB.
03:58:48 <Rich> lol
03:59:46 <Dave from B> I would really like to go to Shoshone with a group of gazers, but that is a long way for 1 day
03:59:51 <Kevin L> I haven't been to Pocket Basin for a long time either. I wouldn't mind doing that again. I guess the changed the road so it is a lot longer hike though.
04:00:48 <Dave from B> I haven't been on the Fountain Flats Road for years
04:01:44 <Dave from B> With only being at OF for 2-3 days, it is hard to leave the area. If I could go for a wwek or so if would be easier to do.
04:02:01 <Kevin L> I used to always go out there with John Muller. There was nothing like those hikes.
04:02:08 <Kevin L> Daisy 1100
04:02:38 <Rich> I guess I will have to get a 'snowmobile' in order to see some of the back country basins.
04:03:01 <Kevin L> It was amazing what John would see that I would just walk right past.
04:05:43 <Rich> Has anyone published pics, locations and descriptions of 'minor' thermal features. The ones we walk by but don't know if they are anything or not.
04:06:26 <ynpvisitor18> !
04:06:42 <Kevin L> Only one I know of is Scott's book.
04:06:48 <Dave from B>
04:07:19 <Dave from B> af sent me this link awhile back. I don't believe there are maps here, however.
04:07:38 <Dave from B> There are photos of most on this site
04:10:52 <Kevin L> Think the elk went to West.
04:14:36 <ynpvisitor67> Rocco and others have detailed maps in many Transactions articles too. Not really photos though if that's what you were after. RCN database would be the best bet.
04:15:24 <Dave from B> Who and where can I find the best map for the Upper Geyser Basin with the most detail?
04:15:42 <Dave from B> Who produced
04:16:16 <ynpvisitor67> The USGS map is pretty good, if gosa still sells them
04:16:22 <Rich> Thanks guys, got to reading the page.
04:16:56 <Rich> Gosa has a dvd with maps.
04:17:06 <Rich> was around $10 I think
04:17:17 <Kevin L> I know the USGS maps are downloadable on the internet. Not real good to hike with, but you can see what they have.
04:17:46 <Dave from B> Thanks, 67 and Rich. I've been meaning to add to my GOSA Transactions clooection. I look for those items
04:17:59 <Rich>
04:18:05 <ynpvisitor67> Gosa has Hague too, I love the old stuff.
04:18:30 <Rich> Sawmill?
04:18:54 <ynpvisitor67> Going afk, but will leave this open.... I vote for Giantess dings to bring me back. :)
04:19:06 <Kevin L> It would appear so.
04:19:15 <Dave from B> I actually have Hague Atlas in my book collection. I love to look at it
04:19:59 <Dave from B> Especially the geyser basin maps
04:20:05 <Rich> Map cd
04:20:12 <ynpvisitor67> Me too Dave, it's incredible. (Really going AFK this time!)
04:20:30 <Rich> g
04:21:01 <Rich> VEC pred for of 11:40
04:22:01 <Dave from B> Bye, 67
04:23:47 <Kevin L> Looks like Turban
04:33:17 <Kevin L> Of 1132
04:34:02 <Rich> nice
04:34:21 <Rich> Just enough wind to clear the view
04:34:37 <Rich> Hi kkc
04:42:58 <Kevin L> Plume 1141 ie
04:44:28 <kc (working)> hi Rich
05:22:02 <BB> hi again
05:22:43 <Kevin L> Hi BB
05:22:49 <Dave from B> Welcome back, BB. You haven't missed much
05:24:13 <Dave from B> I wonder if we will see Lion today?
05:25:30 <Rich> Hi BB
05:26:25 <BB> finished reading the log... not much to read today
05:26:49 <BB> are you looking for hiking maps, Dave, or maps of thermal features?
05:27:07 <Dave from B> Maps of thermal features
05:27:17 <BB> I thought so... can't help you with that
05:27:53 <BB> we have good hiking maps. I remember when Steve posted a backcountry trip report to the listserve I got them out to follow his progress
05:27:57 <BB> that was really fun
05:27:59 <Dave from B> I'm hoping the disk from GOSA website quenches my map thirst
05:28:40 <Dave from B> BB, have you seen the new Atlas of Yellowostone?
05:28:52 <ynpvisitor67> forgot to mention Roccos "Inventory..." too
05:28:59 <BB> no, I don't think so
05:29:32 <Dave from B> Was just published. It is great. Not a lot on geysers, but it is perfect for anyone who is a Yellowstone fanatic
05:29:58 <Dave from B> 67, I beleive Rocco's inventory is on GOSA disk?
05:30:31 <Rich> The one I saw part of Pink mostly, looked good
05:30:36 <ynpvisitor67> I don't know... I am old, I have hard copy
05:31:14 <Dave from B> brb
05:34:18 <BB> I just looked at the Atlas, my screen is pretty small so I couldn't see much but it looks very interesting
05:45:48 <Dave from B> Website doesn't do it justice.
05:46:40 <Kevin L> Hey BB, I found a pack of the cardboard cookies the kids didn't devour at Christmas. Not quite as freash, but still wonderful.
05:47:31 <Rich> lol
05:47:44 <ynpvisitor 55> I saw Rocco and BruceJ discussing the atlas on FB. Apparently there are some errors in the thermal department.
05:47:55 <Rich> I found some M&M Easter variety, from who knows when yesterday.
05:47:58 <ynpvisitor 55> It was unclear to me whether it was placement of name, or placement of features.
05:48:07 <Rich> They 'sure' don't melt in you hand. g
05:48:36 <ynpvisitor 55> But in a way that could be the same, I guess
05:49:13 <Dave from B> Kevin, you and I need to get familiar with FB...sounds like we are missing a lot.
05:49:50 <Kevin L> I think my kids are on it somewhere.
05:50:04 <Rich> Just be sure after you sign up you go in and make your public/private selections
05:50:15 <Dave from B> I need to find the time to figure out how to really use it.
05:50:41 <Dave from B> Rich, those are the things I need to learn
05:51:09 <ynpvisitor 55> Befriend a bunch of geyser people, then look at the pages or groups they "like" or belong to.
05:53:15 <ynpvisitor 55> Yellowstone Association and others. YTG does a daily report any time they do a tour, sometimes twice when they get all the reports from the drivers
05:54:40 <Kevin L> Well if Grand won't play for us, I guess we will have to stick with Old Faithful.
05:54:53 <BB> Kevin, how can you eat those things when it is hot outside???
05:55:20 <BB> Dave, you should just jump in and become FB friends with all of us.
05:55:23 <Kevin L> It is always hot here!
05:55:45 <BB> Then I can add you to the Cam Chat Group, and you don't have to post anything, just read and enjoy
05:56:05 <BB> Kevin, there is a difference between hot and hot
05:56:24 <Kevin L> We are under 100 right now.
05:56:40 <Dave from B> cb and I tried to become friends and neither of us could find each other. Maybe some weekend when I am on at home, I can find you.
05:57:22 <BB> I think I can find you. I am good at snooping around at FB, haha
05:57:36 <BB> you can't confuse me with your name changes :)
05:57:55 <Dave from B> :).
05:58:37 <Dave from B> Only 6 people in Billings with my same name
05:59:24 <ynpvisitor 55> But all 6 probably don't watch geysers, I bet.
05:59:24 <Dave from B> Please feel free to find me. Send me a pm if you need more info. Once someone finds me, it should be easy from there
05:59:59 <ynpvisitor66> Hopefully none Bank at the same bank
06:00:26 <Dave from B> That's why we are all just a number, 66:)
06:01:16 <ynpvisitor66> g
06:01:27 <BB> I think I found you. Sent you a pm for confirmation
06:01:59 <ynpvisitor 55> good luck with it. Some only use FB for Park stuff, so you can keep it to that, or expand to family and friends if you want to.
06:02:04 <Dave from B> Can't hide from you BB!!
06:02:23 <ynpvisitor 55> bbl
06:04:05 <BB> Sent you a friend request. Once you approve me I can connect you with cb
06:05:12 <Kevin L> OF 1304
06:06:19 <Dave from B> BB, you have been approved!
06:06:29 <BB> Thanks Dave
06:06:49 <BB> I am one step ahead of you... added you to the cam chat group already
06:06:50 <Kevin L> Nice gentle breeze has come up.
06:07:06 <Dave from B> I promise to get photos on my site so you know who you are talking to
06:07:18 <BB> now I just have to remember how I can suggest friends for you
06:07:29 <Kevin L> Lion 1306
06:07:35 <Rich> Have a good day, everyone. Time to go find food.
06:07:37 <Rich> Lion
06:07:50 <Dave from B> Bye, Rich. Yeah Lion
06:07:56 <BB> bye Rich. Nice to see you around again
06:08:14 <Rich> ty
06:08:57 <Rich> nowI have to wait for Lion to finish. Such trials. g
06:12:00 <Dave from B> Thanks, BB.
06:12:34 <BB> np Dave
06:19:36 <Kevin L> Castle ie 1318
06:29:59 <Kevin L> Daisy 1329
06:53:54 <ynpvisitor67> ..
07:05:08 <Dave from B> BB, did you see MA's post about 5/8 Grand?
07:05:59 <BB> no
07:06:02 <BB> where, on FB?
07:06:09 <BB> listserve?
07:06:25 <Dave from B> on your FB Camchat page. Grand was at 927
07:07:29 <BB> thanks, no, I hadn't seen that yet
07:08:07 <BB> that explains why I didn't see it
07:08:41 <BB> on Tuesdays and Thursdays I don't have captures between 9 and about 940 am
07:08:58 <BB> because that's when I drive home
07:09:20 <BB> never realized yesterday I was missing about 40 minutes
07:09:23 <BB> sorry about that
07:11:04 <Dave from B> no need to apologize. It clears up our confusion about yesterday
07:19:31 <Kevin L> Lion 1418 ie
07:21:18 <Kevin L> Plume 1420 ie
07:23:28 <Dave from B> ..
07:33:58 <cb> hello all
07:34:10 <Kevin L> hi cb
07:34:21 <Dave from B> Hi, cb. I just aprroved your FB request
07:34:35 <cb> Just a quick drive by while i grab some lunch
07:34:46 <cb> I just saw that!! :)
07:35:10 <Dave from B> Thanks to BB for finding me
07:35:21 <cb> I'm glad we finally figured out which Dave S is which. Yes thank you BB
07:35:56 <cb> next friend Yellowstone Tour Guides!! They have great posts!
07:37:48 <cb> their people watching posts are great fun to read..(not so much fun to be in most of the time) and the pic's are great!
07:42:44 <Dave from B> Kevin, there was an article in Blgs paper about Harvick-Busch fued today
07:43:26 <Kevin L> What was funny is they were hooked up for a while at the race.
07:46:07 <Kevin L> OF taking its sweet time.
07:49:22 <Kevin L> 1h45m so far.
07:51:09 <Dave from B> Longest in past few days.
07:51:36 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
07:51:51 <Kevin L> OF 1451
07:52:36 <Will B> Big OF its out of frame on static
07:53:39 <Dave from B> I tried to look at last 30 days of OF info on GT. It was giving me a syntax error.
07:54:34 <Will B> me too
07:55:08 <Kevin L> Why did you break it Dave?
07:55:24 <Will B> I have been entering a lot of OF data from the 1972 log book currently i wonder if that has anything to with it
07:55:43 <Dave from B> Hey! It was broken before I used it:)
07:56:04 <Dave from B> See, Kevin. Will broke it.
07:56:26 <Dave from B> How is your project going, Will?
07:57:06 <Will B> good but im getting tired of 3 straight months of only OF data
07:57:30 <Will B> 1456 tardy ie?
07:57:57 <ynpvisitor67> I had an error the other day - but it was when Jake was changing the page, adding Ftn and removing F&M from the list on the side.
07:58:08 <Will B> or sawmill?
08:00:38 <Kevin L> Wondering if Grand has gone dormant or if it just doesn't like me.
08:06:58 <Dave from B> Breaking Grand is a much bigger deal than breaking GT, Kevin
08:07:30 <Dave from B> Jake can fiz GT...not sure who can fix Grand
08:07:39 <Dave from B> fiz = fix
08:08:04 <Kevin L> Well Grand does sometimes fizz.
08:10:04 <Dave from B> ..
08:10:30 <Dave from B> I'll call the VEC hotline. brb
08:12:00 <Dave from B> Grand 1600, Castle 430, Daisy 1600, Riverside 2015
08:12:44 <Kevin L> I suppose I am aimed properly then.
08:13:20 <Dave from B> I wonder if Kristine is watching at Grand?
08:13:21 <Will B> Next we should try and get the VEC to put the overnite E times in GT every morning. That would be awesome
08:13:52 <Dave from B> I know Carolyn was doing that during the winter.
08:16:48 <Dave from B> I imagine VEC isn't at full staff for the summer at this point
08:17:13 <Will B> spasmodic 1516ie
08:24:26 <Dave from B> Good Evening, Graham
08:24:51 <Kevin L> Must be on the train again
08:25:44 <Ryan> Beautiful day in YNP
08:29:17 <Ryan> Anything expected?
08:29:30 <Kevin L> Lion
08:29:48 <Ryan> Nice, going to Grand then if it hasnt erupted?
08:29:57 <Kevin L> Grand window
08:34:16 <Dave from B> Ryan, Can you give us Turban times when you get there?
08:34:58 <Ryan> Yes... won be for a year still, but yes, and ill send a heads up if anything goes :)
08:35:32 <Dave from B> the way you were talking, I thought you were there. My apologies
08:35:34 <Kevin L> Lion keeps teasing
08:35:57 <Ryan> No probelm... wish i was lol
08:36:01 <Dave from B> 2 eruption series...come on Lion you can do better than that
08:36:26 <Dave from B> I was hoping we would hear from Kristine.
08:40:32 <Kevin L> Lion 1539
08:40:38 <Ryan> Yay
08:40:54 <Dave from B> That's more like it
08:41:35 <Kevin L> Possible BH before dark Ryan.
08:41:52 <Ryan> Sounds good, I havent seenBH in months
08:43:11 <Ryan> When is it predicted for?
08:43:53 <Ryan> rather... what has its intervals been?
08:44:14 <Dave from B> Last 2 have been 13:25 and 14:47
08:44:34 <Dave from B> 16-17 hours the days before
08:44:54 <Kevin L> 0642 this morning.
08:45:47 <Dave from B> Shouldn't erupt before 1930
08:46:11 <Kevin L> I think we will do some Daisy/Grand fishing.
08:46:14 <Ryan> Grand 1545
08:46:17 <Kevin L> Grand 1545
08:47:26 <Kevin L> Daisy also due.
08:47:53 <Kevin L> You could have a good night Ryan.
08:48:54 <Ryan> Haha
08:49:01 <Ryan> They're all welcoming me back!
08:49:12 <Ryan> A 2b would be nice.
08:55:17 <Ryan> Daisy isnt erupting is it?
08:55:38 <Kevin L> not sure
08:55:55 <Will B> it is
08:55:57 <Ryan> Daisy 1555ie
08:56:08 <Ryan> I saw the wisps of steam go by Grand :P
08:56:58 <Will B> looks like Grand was a 1B
08:57:00 <Kevin L> Livescope is being a pain today.
08:57:05 <Ryan> :/
08:57:27 <Ryan> On to... ?
08:57:52 <Graham> hello
08:57:58 <Ryan> Plume an OF
08:58:01 <Ryan> Hey Graham
08:58:02 <Kevin L> Aurum
08:58:02 <Graham> looks like someone is making everything erupt before my shift?
08:58:13 <Ryan> :) Guilty as charged.
08:58:18 <Kevin L> We may have left a BH for you.
08:58:38 <Dave from B> Time to go. Taxi duty tonight. Have a great night everyone!.
08:58:49 <Kevin L> Bye Dave.
08:58:51 <Ryan> See ya Dave
08:59:01 <Will B> Bye Dave
08:59:15 <Kevin L> Aurum is due also Graham. Get your TV set fixed Graham?
08:59:18 <Dave from B> Good luck tonight, Graham (With Caps and BH)
08:59:35 <Will B> LC 1558ie
08:59:42 <Graham> thanks Dave
08:59:49 <Graham> I think the CAPS need a lot of luck :(
09:01:56 <Graham> a second bee would be nice tonight
09:04:45 <Kevin L> I think I hear a prime rib calling my name.
09:05:09 <Graham> mmmmmmm i can smell it too
09:05:49 <Kevin L> bbl
09:08:06 <Will B> Plume
09:08:09 <Will B> 1607
09:09:46 <Will B> 5B Plume
09:11:00 <Graham> OF 1609
09:11:57 <af> hi
09:12:33 <Will B> hi af
09:18:15 <af> kinda doubting that minor castle to the major? or is that normal?
09:24:17 <Graham> I believe the castle. Jim knows what it is and was in the park. Kevin knows what a Major is
09:25:02 <Graham> the intervals are sometimes short, I have noticed some times really short like that recently
09:25:18 <af> ok that's what I was asking.
09:25:46 <af> I wasn't going agasinst either persons intergrity, if it seemed so it was by accident
09:27:33 <Graham> there was a 3h14 on the 2nd.
09:28:59 <Will B> that was a big BH splash
09:29:44 <Ryan> Window shouldnt open for at least an hour if that
09:30:42 <Graham> unless it does another 7h interval :)
09:30:56 <Graham> well almost 10 now, so possible
09:31:01 <Ryan> shhh dont scareit!
09:31:28 <Graham> but i agree, unlikely for an hour or more
09:32:01 <Ryan> Is it still staying semi regular?
09:33:36 <Graham> ~11 - 21 h intervals
09:33:52 <Ryan> The majority ?
09:33:54 <Graham> so yeah, pretty regular
09:34:48 <Graham> all over the place
09:35:53 <Will B> LC1634ns
09:36:01 <Ryan> Any missed? If not: It may not have entered "summer" mode yet
09:36:08 <Graham> seems to do a cluster around 12 and sometimes around 17 but can be anywhere in that range
09:36:30 <Ryan> Tri modal :P
09:37:32 <Graham> i suspect its not doing 24+ they all line up with a night-time mised eruption
09:37:35 <Will B> Lion Rorar 1636
09:37:52 <Ryan> well thats good
09:38:08 <Graham> not sure it really has a "summer mode" - it has periods of increased and decreased regularity
09:38:29 <Graham> its been regular most of the recent years with the one period of false indicators and an 80h interval
09:38:55 <Ryan> Near predicatable for a while
09:39:10 <Ryan> Those false indicators were in.. '09? or '10
09:39:19 <Graham> yep. it does seem to be less regular right now though
09:39:30 <Graham> but still frequent
09:40:14 <Ryan> When I went in '09 it was basically predictable... At least, I knew when the next one would be without asking someone else...
09:40:23 <Ryan> +/- 2.5hrs i think it was
09:42:11 <Will B> Lion roar 1641
09:43:58 <Ryan> Lion 1643
09:44:01 <Will B> Lion 1643
09:44:24 <Ryan> Thought it was going for a sec
09:46:28 <Will B> now only if we can get some NGs
09:47:50 <Graham> most NG are further into the series
09:48:17 <Will B> this was the 4th lion right?
09:48:27 <Ryan> Yes
09:48:49 <Ryan> So north goggles has been... frequent... ish?
09:49:46 <Graham> yep, erupts in most long Lion series and can continue afterwards
09:49:52 <Graham> we have had over 100 this year
09:49:57 <Ryan> Nice
09:50:05 <Will B> is this a new spasmodic from the 1516 one
09:50:29 <Graham> dunno, i don;'t track Spasmo
09:50:33 <Ryan> I know what Im doing next summer :) Me and the bench at Lion will be great friends lol
09:50:45 <Ryan> What is NG's activity like right now?
09:51:08 <Graham> i wish it keeps it up but I doubt it will be going next year
09:51:49 <Will B> to me I try and track all that I can because you can always ignore the data later but if you dont write it down you cant go back and get the data
09:51:50 <Graham> usually has series
09:52:05 <Graham> all the majors seen recently have been during long lion series after a few minors
09:52:20 <Ryan> Well how long is a long series?
09:52:39 <Graham> the forst activity lasted 2 days, 40 seen in daylight
09:53:04 <Graham> but recently its 1-8
09:53:11 <Graham> at least in daylight
09:53:19 <Ryan> Ok
09:54:00 <Graham> recent Lion series have been shorter so it will be interesting t osee if NG quits
09:54:18 <Ryan> Yes it will
09:55:23 <Graham> i still dont have the April sput, does everyone else?
09:55:45 <Graham> i know it reached OR and WA
09:58:46 <Will B> I was just looking at the Yellowstone Tour Gides FB page and found this :(
09:58:47 <Will B>!/photo.php?fbid=406501969390313&set=a.261444367229408.68727.176160852424427&type=1&theater
09:59:37 <Graham> oh yeah ... their stupid people notes each day are good
09:59:50 <Graham> Plume 1658ie
10:01:50 <Graham> its steamy...
10:02:31 <Will B> what is that vent behind depression?
10:02:48 <Graham> a Dwarf, North Dwarf i think
10:02:54 <Will B> thanks
10:03:15 <Graham> wish it wasn't there, puts up too much steam we confuse with Dep
10:03:34 <Ryan> I think Dep is trying
10:09:41 <Kevin L> I have my April Sput.
10:10:14 <Graham> ok, still in the west tho ...
10:10:34 <Kevin L> BTW Graham, there were some elk this morning about where you have the camera pointed now.
10:10:35 <Graham> Ryan - do you get the Sput?
10:10:42 <Ryan> No
10:10:58 <Ryan> Can I just get it from GOSA?
10:11:14 <Graham> yeah, its part of the $20 membership
10:11:55 <Graham> it comes out bimonthly
10:13:13 <Ryan> Do I just get the Sput, or is there a page to become a member?
10:13:49 <Graham> thats it, all you get is the SPut but its worth it if you like geysers
10:14:10 <Ryan> Ok, so if i order the Sput... Im a member>
10:14:12 <Ryan> ?
10:14:13 <Graham> has some interesting articles, geyser summary, and occasionally some good pics :)
10:15:04 <Graham> well technically since its a non-profit you are not a member, only the directors and officers are
10:15:09 <Kevin L> Yes Ryan. Sput is worth the price of membership.
10:16:01 <Ryan> Ok
10:16:02 <Graham> it has my winter weather report in it this time
10:17:02 <Graham> Sawmill 1715?
10:17:33 <Graham> yep
10:18:03 <Kevin L> Ugh. Computer just started load 19 updates for Windows.
10:18:19 <Graham> yeah gonna keep you all nice and sdafe
10:19:01 <Graham> so Kevin - did the bear chase the elk away during your shift?
10:19:40 <Ryan> Just got it :)
10:20:39 <Graham> yeah ... you are one of the 200 or so that get it Ryan
10:21:25 <Ryan> Should I get the April one if I just ordered now?
10:22:09 <Graham> maybe yours will arrive before mine?
10:38:23 <Graham> its time...
10:38:38 <Ryan> time?
10:38:45 <Kevin L> Didn't get the elk during my shift. Carol had them.
10:39:13 <Kevin L> I think the red got rocked last time.
10:39:37 <ROCKTHERED> my cures on msg didn't work
10:39:46 <ROCKTHERED> maybe thats why
10:40:06 <ROCKTHERED> CURSE not cures
10:41:35 <ROCKTHERED> Lion 1740
10:41:37 <Will B> Lion 1740
10:43:00 <ROCKTHERED> game is still tied, theres hope :)
10:44:58 <Kevin L> Now if you can talk them into cutting 7 seconds off the game time.
10:45:30 <ROCKTHERED> i know, that would have helped .....and then therte was the other game that went 5s longer too
10:45:42 <ROCKTHERED> :)
10:45:46 <ROCKTHERED> :) :)
10:46:08 <Kevin L> Guessing it is not the Rangers.
10:46:16 <ROCKTHERED> too much to hope they have a 2 goal lead with 7sec left?
10:46:36 <Kevin L> That would have helped last night.
10:47:36 <ROCKTHERED> power play goal by #8, about time he got on a scoring run
10:47:47 <Kevin L> We had a high school football game where we scored 3 minutes into the game and were 2 points ahead when the gun sounded for the 4th quarter and we still lost.
10:48:33 <Ryan> NG steam?
10:48:49 <ROCKTHERED> 2 points ahead when the end of 4th Q gun sounded?
10:48:52 <Ryan> Something is steaming in NG vicinity
10:49:06 <ROCKTHERED> i see nothing
10:49:41 <ROCKTHERED> Plume 1748
10:49:41 <Will B> Plume1748
10:50:13 <Will B> same second on the log nice Graham
10:50:26 <Kevin L> And 3 tourists in need of new Pampers.
10:51:29 <ROCKTHERED> OF 1750
10:52:05 <Ryan> Plume is a jolt if your not expecting it
10:52:40 <ROCKTHERED> better when Cascade is active too, makes you spin around and around
10:52:41 <Will B> Im off to go eat dinner bbl! Bye
10:52:55 <ROCKTHERED> enjoy
10:52:56 <Kevin L> bye
10:53:13 <ROCKTHERED> there haven't been any OF shorts for a long time

11:43:11 <Kitt> Plume
11:43:16 <ROCKTHERED> trio with BHI
11:43:17 <Kitt> triple
11:43:20 <Kevin L> The hill has sprung leaks.
11:43:35 <Kitt> The hills are alive
11:43:40 <Kent> It really is amazing
11:43:58 <Ryan> BH, come on down!
11:44:03 <Ryan> ... or up rather :)
11:44:27 <Ryan> anyone capturing?
11:44:48 <Kevin L> kc usually has capture on.
11:45:03 <Kent> Thanks for catching Plume Graham
11:45:26 <Ryan> good, this is a good one!
11:45:30 <ROCKTHERED> yw
11:46:12 <Ryan> 12hr unterval almost exact...
11:46:15 <ROCKTHERED> no noise from kc
11:46:35 <Kevin L> Sent him a txt.
11:48:22 <Ryan> 13mins in...
11:49:13 <Kitt> Oh look, lucky person number one to view bee
11:49:46 <ROCKTHERED> will they leave before it erupts?
11:50:11 <Ryan> not if they read the sign
11:50:34 <Kitt> no this person came and sat down
11:50:49 <Kitt> go big bee
11:50:57 <Ryan> BH 1850
11:51:02 <Kitt> Yippee!
11:51:38 <Ryan> Not a bad night, seen as how this is my first extended chat room visit since March!
11:52:06 <Kent> We need sound.
11:52:20 <Ryan> We need to feel it lol
11:52:35 <Kitt> Rumble, rumble, rumble!!!
11:52:44 <Kent> Thanks Kitt
11:52:55 <Kitt> Oh, that person gets rainbows
11:52:57 <Ryan> So... tell me, speaking of feeling it... is waiting for an overnight Oblong eruption worth it? I have BH, OF, Grand and F$M on my overnight wait list
11:53:44 <Kitt> If the thumps have been good it is easier to hear and feel them at night due to lack of traffic
11:53:48 <ROCKTHERED> oblong is always worth waiting for
11:54:18 <Kitt> Go for the shower
11:54:22 <ROCKTHERED> but the others are probably higher on the list (if F&M are active and someone calls you
11:54:22 <Ryan> Just imagining the whole, no one around you, perfect silence and then... thump, thump. thump, Oblong goes :)
11:54:45 <ROCKTHERED> someone in kitts BH watching spot
11:54:47 <ROCKTHERED> in the rain
11:55:10 <Ryan> Well, BH and Grand are on my list for sure, at least for night gazing... hoping for a full moon
11:55:18 <ROCKTHERED> :) :) :) :)
11:55:34 <ROCKTHERED> 2 goal lead, i don't think i can handle that!
11:55:41 <Kent> :)
11:55:46 <Ryan> :)
