02:02:05 <Dave from B> Hi, af. Sorry to hear about Andy Schleck
02:02:20 <af> that was a short!
02:02:34 <af> oh yeah
02:03:07 <af> i am going for a run just checking in
02:03:20 <af> can you put that in?
02:03:28 <ynpvisitor65> I was wondering if that was a short OF. Haven't seen too many.
02:03:39 <Dave from B> np ,af
02:04:06 <ynpvisitor95> I had just over 2 min
02:05:51 <ynpvisitor65> I keep forgetting, what counts as short vs. long?
02:06:45 <Dave from B> Not sure, either. Thinking it is 3 minutes
02:07:27 <ynpvisitor65> OK, thanks.
02:11:28 <Will B(@ Work)> Good morning!
02:11:56 <ynpvisitor65> Good morning.
02:12:29 <Will B(@ Work)> 65 the long short line is about 3.5 min but that is not set in stone
02:13:44 <ynpvisitor65> Thanks.
02:17:02 <Dave from B> ..
02:17:19 <Dave from B> Morning, Will B
02:17:34 <Will B(@ Work)> Hi Dave
02:18:19 <Dave from B> Thanks for the text yesterday. Couldn't quite make it home in time
02:18:35 <Will B(@ Work)> np
02:23:52 <Will B(@ Work)> hi lc
02:23:53 <lc> we need to get from the VC what they use for long/short OF
02:24:18 <lc> morning Will, Dave
02:24:29 <Dave from B> Hi, lc
02:24:51 <ynpvisitor65> Hi lc.
02:25:08 <lc> morning 65
02:26:03 <kc (working)> short is under 2 mins. they used to add 60 mins but that may have changed
02:26:14 <kc (working)> *used to add 62 mins
02:26:24 <lc> Kevin said a week or so ago that he thought 3.5 min, Kitt said she thought 2.5.
02:26:53 <ynpvisitor65> 62 minutes looks right. Next prediction is 1002.
02:26:56 <lc> I always thought 2.5
02:27:10 <ynpvisitor65> Old Tardy.
02:27:20 <ynpvisitor68> I think I read somewhere +/-3
02:28:01 <kc (working)> there are 2 'mediums', 2-3 mins and 3-4 mins
02:28:32 <kc (working)> over 4 mins is long, add 90 mins
02:28:35 <lc> Graham sait very few eruptions stoped between 2.5 and 3.5.
02:28:48 <kc (working)> i dont have the current 'medium' numbers
02:29:02 <Will B(@ Work)> Grand 0928
02:29:09 <lc> Grand 0928
02:31:41 <lc> if I don't forget I will try to find out next week.
02:32:32 <Will B(@ Work)> is anybody else having problems with the GOSA site?
02:32:56 <ynpvisitor68> ha ha yeah, triede that too
02:32:58 <ynpvisitor65> Any particular page?
02:33:19 <Will B(@ Work)> anything but the home page
02:34:16 <ynpvisitor65> Yup. Onlt the home page will load for me.
02:38:17 <af> that was a nice run
02:38:40 <Dave from B> How far, af?
02:38:46 <af> 3.5 miles
02:39:18 <af> 2nd
02:40:03 <Dave from B> ok, I guess I looked away at the wrong time again
02:40:06 <af> that was nice
02:40:14 <lc> less than a min
02:40:27 <af> lets get a third
02:40:32 <af> the pause looked too long
02:42:10 <ynpvisitor65> Can't stay here all day, unfortunately. See you later.
02:42:23 <af> bye 65
02:42:25 <lc> later 65
02:49:04 <af> I got myself a big floppy hat for the sun
02:56:14 <af> yep it was a short
02:58:50 <ynpvisitor68> wikipedia, which generally knows what is found on other websites, says OF is +/- 2.5 for long/short
02:59:34 <af> well preplay has started
03:00:21 <lc> don't remember where I got it but that is what I thougt. thanks 68
03:00:42 <af> TSB does't have it
03:00:47 <af> Hi Kevin
03:00:52 <Kevin L> hi
03:02:37 <Dave from B> Hi, Kevin
03:02:51 <Kevin L> of 1002
03:03:05 <Kevin L> Hi
03:03:24 <Dave from B> Had our first snake in our yard in our 13 year s at our current house. Subject of snakes keeps coming up:)
03:03:55 <af> those things can be very quiet and snaky
03:03:56 <Kevin L> Did you find your back door?
03:05:42 <Dave from B> Just a harmless garter snake. We didn't even relocate him...just let him be. My son had fun watching him for a awhile
03:06:17 <lc> got a bird house on one of the deck post, few weeks ago I opened it to see if birds building in it, there was a snake in it.
03:06:44 <af> I told you there very snaky
03:07:40 <Kevin L> Don't like snakes at all. They seem to get into lots of places you don't think they can.
03:07:41 <lc> how they can climb a 6x6 post, I don't know.
03:08:25 <lc> it was a chicken snake, harmless.
03:08:46 <Kevin L> Unless you are a chicken.
03:09:06 <af> in which case kevin wouldn't like them
03:10:32 <Kevin L> Looks like a boring day coming up. I would guess at least 4 hours before we have a shot at BH. Hopefully we get a Lion start.
03:10:50 <ynpvisitor68> haven't heard "chicken snake" - is that what I would call a black or rat snake (all black as adult) or a corn snake (more rust colored with a pattern)?
03:13:51 <lc> has a pottern, black/dark gray.
03:14:53 <lc> that is probably a local name or down south name. g
03:15:21 <Kevin L> Chicken snake and rat snake are the same thing.
03:16:04 <lc> they are not a bad thing, eat a lot of mice/rats.
03:16:18 <ynpvisitor68> ok, yeah our "black snakes" have a pattern in gray and black as juveniles and it fades, only seen faintly later on or on their belly
03:16:52 <lc> sounds like the same thing.
03:17:46 <ynpvisitor68> I saw a timber rattler for the first time, on the Appilachian Trail about a month ago
03:17:50 <lc> we also have a black racer, they are pretty much solid black.
03:18:38 <Kevin L> I HATE rattlesnakes. They sneak down here every once in a while.
03:19:02 <lc> we have a few rattlers, don't like them at all.
03:19:10 <lc> and copperheads
03:19:43 <ynpvisitor68> Check out the black snake climbing a tree on the wikipedia site
03:20:14 <Kevin L> Dittos on the copperheads. And the cottonmouths. Those are very aggresive. Glad we don't have either of them here, but I did battle with a few in Texas.
03:20:58 <ynpvisitor68> I haven't seen a copperhead in probably 10-12 years. No cottonmouths here.
03:21:03 <af> I have seen a rattler, garte rsnake and king snake thats all
03:21:07 <af> plume 1021
03:21:15 <Kevin L> Plume 1020 ie
03:21:18 <af> california is pretty tame
03:30:16 <lc> time for a break
03:53:33 <Dave from B> ..
03:54:03 <Rich> Morning Everyone

04:13:08 <Rich> Has the location of the Mobile cam been identified?
04:14:08 <Rich> Well, duh! on my part. The location is in the top line. g
04:14:47 <Rich> Biscuit Basin
04:17:28 <af> report from my dad about lassen: there is a true geyser that has recently devoped in a valley a little wase from teh road
04:18:06 <Rich> good news
04:18:37 <Rich> I should make a day trip up there. Road is open over the top.
04:18:46 <Kevin L> Don't let Harry Reid find out about it.

04:32:36 <Rich> Hi Ryan

04:43:43 <af> i hate how robust the cache on this tablet is
04:44:16 <af> i clear everythong once thrn i am still af when the chatpage comes back
04:45:09 <Rich> not necessarily the tablets fault. Seems to have happened to several other visitors, over time.
04:46:00 <Kevin L> I think this is the longest OF interval I have had on the cam.
04:46:15 <ynpvisitor35> how long
04:46:30 <Kevin L> 1h45m and counting.
04:47:30 <Dave from B> Anyone leaving the bw?
04:47:39 <Kevin L> I am wondering if Daisy went early and I missed it. Been watching it for about 50m now. Well over 3 hours.
04:48:11 <Kevin L> OF 1147
04:48:47 <ynpvisitor35> geysers arent liking you today then

05:35:23 <Dave from B> Hi, BB Michael. wb, af

05:35:40 <af> I was lurking as 35
05:35:45 <Rich> Somebody grab the tree.
05:35:59 <Kevin L> Wind SSW 11G23
05:36:10 <Rich> I believe
05:36:17 <Ryan> Assuming Verizon has 3G or 4G coverager there, Im giving you guys near constant updates in the park :)
05:36:30 <af> someone should txt kitt so she can holl over there
05:36:46 <Ryan> She might be there
05:36:49 <Will B(@ Work)> lion is splashing
05:36:56 <Ryan> if shes in the basin, she knows
05:36:57 <af> tehy do ryan my dad called my mom in midway on the way to imperial
05:37:14 <Ryan> ?
05:37:27 <Ryan> Oh, about Verzion, ok
05:37:43 <af> verizon has 3g in midway on the trail to imperial so I think they would in UGB
05:38:01 <Ryan> ok
05:39:05 <Will B(@ Work)> .
05:39:34 <af> how I spend my afternoons
05:39:58 <af> a ranger led tour
05:40:19 <af> on a buetiful summer afternoon lol
05:40:20 <Will B(@ Work)> af are you in the park?
05:40:41 <Dave from B> af, is only reminicing
05:40:48 <Rich> I haven't been able to locate any information on the Lassen Geyser.
05:40:49 <Ryan> g
05:41:04 <Ryan> Rich, Terminal "Geyser"?
05:41:16 <Will B(@ Work)> thats what i thought just double checking
05:41:45 <Michael> BB, are you capturing the still cam? There was steam at North Goggles about 5 minutes ago. Probably just Indicator steam, but worth another look.
05:41:46 <af> no its not
05:42:01 <Kevin L> Lots of customers for this bh.
05:42:04 <Will B(@ Work)> BH 1241
05:42:04 <af> bee 1241
05:42:06 <Ryan> BH 1242
05:42:23 <af> climb bee!
05:42:30 <Rich> Previous conversation here, mentioned that a 'true' geyser has started up in Lassen NP.
05:42:50 <Ryan> recently?
05:42:52 <BB> Michael, yes, but downstairs. Will go and check after BH
05:43:27 <af> my dad observed it yesterday and told that to me I have no details and right now the nps probably doesn't know
05:43:51 <Ryan> Fairly tall gievn the wind factor
05:43:57 <af> I will be gooing there in 2 weeks and will give you a more formal report if you want one
05:44:12 <Rich> ty, I was just trying to plan a day trip and wanted to be sure it would still be 'there' b
05:44:35 <Ryan> g
05:45:00 <Michael> Please do. Current thermal activity at Lassen would also be an excellent subject for a GOSA Transactions article, if you are so inclined.
05:45:00 <af> its only conjecture as to if it is one however no closed intervals have were taken and it was 'intermintant'
05:45:10 <Ryan> that was a nice break from chores
05:45:33 <Ryan> :)
05:45:35 <Ryan> later
05:45:37 <af> agreed
05:45:39 <Will B(@ Work)> run!
05:45:43 <af> bye ryan
05:46:11 <Rich> bye ryan
05:46:23 <Michael> Bye Ryan.
05:46:33 <af> michael I won't have that time to somethign of that nature a report on this 'geyser' I will do though
05:46:50 <Will B(@ Work)> .
05:46:58 <af> and an update on drake sbad area which i will see too
05:47:05 <Michael> Anything is better than what I know now...
05:48:11 <af> k, will get back to some otehr stuff BBL thanks for the dings
05:48:23 <Rich> later af
05:48:32 <Michael> Bye af.
05:49:09 <Rich> What is it, Fleet Day at BH?
05:50:34 <Michael> Just a lovely almost-summer afternoon
05:52:17 <Rich> It's not supposed to hit triple digits today, unlike yesterday.
05:53:00 <BB> Michael, I found the frame you were referring to... Indicator steam is my guess
05:53:05 <BB> too far left for NG
05:53:46 <Michael> Thanks. Would have been an unexpected time for NG, too.
05:55:05 <Dave from B> ..
05:57:26 <Michael> Little Cub 12:56ie. Might be the best excitement for a a little while now.
05:59:14 <Dave from B> Slight rocking motion may put all of us asleep
06:00:11 <Rich> OF should be coming into its window.
06:01:51 <Michael> That's worth sticking around for. Then I'll get back to work.
06:03:22 <Rich> VEC pred 13:17

06:42:06 <HermBumpus> 1341
07:02:00 <Will B(@ Work)> transfer of both the 1973 and 1974 OFVCL-EV are now complete!
07:08:23 <Dave from B> Great job, Will! I didn't even know what a geyser was in 1973
07:22:00 <af> and will and I didnt exist then
07:22:19 <Will B(@ Work)> same with me
07:22:40 <Kevin L> I was out of High School.
07:24:53 <af> time for a big pretzal
07:25:22 <Dave from B> I was 10 and sheltered in a town of 5000 in Eastern Montana
07:33:41 <Kevin L> Plume 1433
07:34:36 <Dave from B> Kevin, what happened to Kyle yesterday? More engine problems?
07:35:09 <af> wonder where he is today
07:36:15 <Kevin L> 3rd week in a row he had engine failures. That make 3 engine failures this year for the entire Joe Gibbs team. Other two ended up worse. Joey ended up wadded into a ball and Hamilton was in a BBQ.
07:36:22 <Dave from B> af, did you hear Andy Schleck is out of the Tour de France?
07:36:56 <Dave from B> Kyle's going to have a hard time catching up at this rate
07:37:05 <af> yes he broke some bone. his pelvis or something really nasty
07:38:04 <Kevin L> I worked with a guy that raced bikes and even rode with Lance Armstrong a few times. He had some really ugly injuries from race crashes.
07:38:23 <af> yep his oelvis
07:38:57 <Kevin L> At least a race car you have a steel cage around you.
07:40:32 <Dave from B> You're right, Kevin. Steel cage helps most of the time
07:41:24 <af> but they're gtown men
07:41:35 <af> and tgey crasg eezspensive cars
07:41:53 <Kevin L> I did a wipeout on a bike when I was 8 and it really messed up my knee. Still can see the evidence today.
07:42:17 <af> that was a while ago
07:42:28 <af> ive have broken three bones
07:42:30 <Kevin L> Hey af, there were a few guy driveng cars at about 200mph that were your age Friday.
07:42:48 <af> :0

07:44:03 <Dave from B> :)
07:44:24 <Dave from B> Sounds like my friend in hgih school, who drove to drivers training
07:44:44 <Kevin L> Kyle Busch was driving legends cars when he was 12. He let my son sit in his car several times.

10:14:11 <Graham> probably W Triplet
10:15:57 <Graham> is that smoke thats making it all fuzzy?
