23:18:01 <vw> Good morning.
23:19:26 <lc> good morning
23:19:31 <vw> Hi lc!
23:28:16 <vw> Sometimes waiting for the first OF of the day seems like the longest wait of the day.
23:33:08 <vw> sorry. can't get it right.
23:33:23 <lc> np
23:34:10 <vw> I am not seeing water, but Depression sure looks hot.
23:34:22 <lc> no burst
23:34:36 <vw> Yeah, I agree.
23:35:00 <vw> Not sure if we will be able to see from this far away.
23:42:01 <vw> Riverside 0641 ie, ?
23:42:19 <lc> yes
23:42:37 <vw> We got one!
23:42:45 <lc> g
23:43:45 <vw> Missing the sunrise hitting the hills. Always like to watch that.
00:08:48 <vw> Anemone 0708 ie. I don't know big from little though.
00:09:08 <vw> Micah would be so disappointed in me.
00:09:18 <lc> g
00:09:54 <lc> vw, I think you got Riverside ns.
00:10:18 <vw> k. Thanks lc. I will change that entry.
00:10:32 <lc> yw
00:11:41 <vw> With LS the way it is, I spend so much of my attention focused on it that I never can tell what I have missed.
00:14:05 <vw> BHI 0713 ns
00:15:25 <lc> BH has been puffing for a while.
00:16:25 <vw> It would be so nice to actually get an eruption from BH.
00:17:06 <lc> going on 5 days now.
00:17:47 <vw> I haven't really checked: are we falling into any kind of pattern yet with BH in this 'new' mode?
00:18:28 <lc> don't seem to be.
00:19:07 <vw> Intervals in the days wouldn't be so bad if there was some kind of predictability to it. Kind of like F&M in its active years.
00:19:42 <lc> couple of 7 day intervals and others are 1 day.
00:20:07 <vw> Wow. Not much of a predictable pattern there!
00:20:31 <lc> no
00:20:53 <vw> Looks like a strong Indicator. Hard to tell.
00:21:02 <vw> If it is still going after OF we will zoom in.
00:21:29 <lc> OF should be pretty soon
00:22:00 <lc> maybe I just missed it when I logged on.
00:22:21 <vw> It would be very disappointed if we had a BH but it got hidden by OF.
00:22:31 <vw> I was thinking the same re OF.
00:22:35 <lc> Daisy 0822ie static
00:22:36 <vw> Daisy 0722 ie
00:22:52 <lc> central time. g
00:22:59 <vw> Can you log that lc?
00:23:03 <vw> :D
00:23:07 <lc> will do
00:23:07 <ynpvisitor95> new fire reported near South Entrance yesterday
00:24:16 <vw> Lots of dry lightening the last couple of days in MT. Not surprised to hear of new fires in the and around the Park.
00:25:03 <vw> We are in the historically 2 most active fire weeks in MT.
00:25:31 <vw> OF 0725
00:25:41 <lc> there we go
00:30:23 <Dave from B> Good morning, lc and vw
00:30:28 <Dave from B> and numbers
00:30:41 <vw> Hi Dave!
00:30:42 <lc> morning Dave
00:32:13 <Dave from B> Not a day to sleep in at OF...Daisy, Grand, Riverside, Grt Ftn already have erupted
00:32:15 <vw> Nice strong INdicator, and some splashing from BH.
00:32:51 <lc> when was Grand?
00:33:10 <lc> nothing logged
00:33:18 <vw> Those times just got posted.
00:33:23 <vw> Grand was 0529
00:33:50 <lc> now I got them.
00:34:19 <vw> Big splash from BH. I am pulling back, just in case.
00:35:12 <lc> that was 20 min splash. g
00:36:16 <vw> Best guess lc?
00:36:41 <lc> not looking good.
00:36:49 <vw> Bummer.
00:37:12 <lc> 24 min now
00:38:49 <Dave from B> Do either one of you know how long these false indicator periods can last?
00:38:58 <Dave from B> weeks,months,years?
00:39:22 <lc> I don't know
00:40:13 <lc> I don't think years, maybe a few months.
00:41:02 <lc> been about a month now
00:42:13 <vw> I don't know either, Dave. Graham probably would know.
00:42:47 <lc> hope it can get its act together before labor day
00:42:55 <vw> The way the data is set up, it would even be hard to pull it out.
00:43:53 <Dave from B> We need something to happen on the hill...BH, Plume and/or Giantess
00:43:57 <lc> I can remember being in the pars a week and no BH.
00:44:25 <lc> I agree, we need Giantess.
00:57:04 <vw> I am going to grab some breakfast real quick. brb.
00:57:46 <lc> me too
01:03:47 <Dave from B> Morning, Jenna
01:03:57 <Jenna> morning
01:04:52 <vw> BHI still going at 51m.
01:04:55 <vw> Hi Jenna!
01:06:42 <Dave from B> And, no one but us is watching
01:07:46 <vw> I don't suppose BHI is generating much buzz these days.
01:08:32 <Jenna> morning vw
01:08:37 <Jenna> there are two people there
01:09:51 <Dave from B> vw, it was weird at OF....BHI normally initiates a mad dash to BH....now you're not sure what to do
01:09:53 <lc> bhi is off
01:11:58 <vw> I will note that in my entry. Use 0809 ie lc? Wasn't watching closely so I am not sure when it turned off.
01:12:52 <Dave from B> LC 0813ie
01:29:36 <lc> not many people on the BW this morning.
01:29:59 <ynpvisitor95> .
01:30:43 <Dave from B> They shouldn't be at Fountain
01:31:20 <lc> sleeping in
01:32:27 <ynpvisitor95> I'd bet some are at Ftn based on a double (short) interval
01:33:19 <Dave from B> Probably should be at Fountain by 0930
01:33:49 <lc> has been doing 7 +h lately
01:34:27 <ynpvisitor95> Wonder how Super Frying Pan is doing.
01:35:24 <Dave from B> We saw a series of SFP when we were waiting for Fountain last Thursday and during Trifecta on Friday
01:35:40 <Dave from B> During Trifecta, there were 6 geysers going at one point
01:35:58 <ynpvisitor95> I wish someone would get a video of it
01:36:10 <ynpvisitor95> That is awesome Dave
01:36:21 <Dave from B> With wind blowing at bw, water from SFP was actually hot when it hit you
01:36:29 <ynpvisitor95> Adding Clep Jet and SPF?
01:36:35 <Dave from B> Yes, 95
01:36:47 <lc> I wonder where they will move the BW when it has to be replaced.
01:37:26 <ynpvisitor95> good question
01:37:31 <Dave from B> I wish they would widen it
01:37:53 <lc> thats for sure
01:38:24 <Dave from B> I really wish they would add bw to geysers behind Clep
01:38:43 <Dave from B> But, then they would need a larger parking lot.
01:39:12 <Dave from B> I really wish they would start a free shuttle service from OF to all the basins along the Firehole
01:39:31 <Dave from B> Seems to be the perfect place to start as far a shuttles go
01:47:39 <Jenna> .
01:47:41 <lc> Oblong 0847ie static
01:49:24 <lc> sure looked like it, now I'm not so sure.
01:49:48 <Jenna> looked like it to me too
01:50:08 <ynpvisitor95> ..
01:50:31 <lc> lookes like it again
01:51:39 <lc> I logged it with a ?
01:55:49 <Dave from B> lc, have you ever heard thumps at Black Sand Pool?
01:56:08 <lc> yes
01:56:19 <lc> went there last two trips
01:56:32 <lc> very impressive
01:56:35 <Dave from B> My first time was last week. I would love to go when it was quiet...I had 2 noisy kids with us
01:56:39 <Dave from B> Not mine
01:57:25 <Dave from B> I take it nobody wanted to touch my shuttle idea
01:57:56 <vw> I think it is a wonderful idea Dave.
01:58:04 <vw> OF 0857
01:58:05 <lc> OF 0857
01:58:52 <ynpvisitor95> I don't think gazers would use it, but day visitors might
01:59:20 <Dave from B> I was close to road rage on Friday at Norris and Mammoth...traffic is awful...not fun
01:59:53 <vw> That is one of the reasons why a shuttle system would be so great: cut down some on the traffic.
02:00:00 <Dave from B> I think some gazers and hikers would use it
02:00:18 <Jenna> .
02:00:20 <Jenna> I would
02:00:22 <Dave from B> I think Glacier system works great
02:00:34 <ynpvisitor95> how oftendo they run?
02:00:53 <vw> As most of the people in the park are just regular tourists, it might entice them to go to other basins/features if they didn't have to drive and fight traffic.
02:00:53 <Jenna> I couldn't show Scott mot of the basins because the parking lots were full
02:00:53 <Dave from B> Service has to be frequent enough to be excepted
02:01:15 <Dave from B> 95, Glacier shuttles run every 15-30 minutes
02:01:29 <Dave from B> And, they also run full
02:01:42 <vw> Yes, it would have to be a series of shuttles. Maybe enough so they could do stops on 30m rotations.
02:02:16 <ynpvisitor61> Can you imagine how you would feel if you knew there was a chance of a dual - and the shuttle bus was waiting to be full before it left?
02:02:42 <Dave from B> They run on a scheldule not whether they are full or not
02:03:06 <Dave from B> Yosemite shuttles also work well
02:03:07 <vw> then you would wait for the next one. As a gazer you would know those 30 aren't that long. Certainly could be less time then time spent driving, parking. walking...
02:03:24 <Dave from B> I think 15 minute intervals would work better
02:03:50 <ynpvisitor95> I want my food at great fountain, and the ability to get to Ftn if it starts.
02:04:12 <vw> well, then you would be one of the people who drove themselves. Options would be nice though.
02:04:48 <Dave from B> Even if you drove your own vehicle wouldn't it be nice to ACTUALLY find a parking spot at Fountain?
02:05:16 <vw> Yeah, it would be nice if the parking wasn't so jammed in certain locations!
02:06:21 <ynpvisitor94> How about a tme limit on prking in the popular plces
02:06:25 <vw> To say nothing of the traffic on the roads....
02:07:05 <Dave from B> 94, that would definitely hurt gazers
02:07:33 <ynpvisitor95> haha, the gazers would get tickets at Paint Pots, for sure
02:07:36 <ynpvisitor94> See not easy answers are there?
02:08:22 <ynpvisitor95> maybe a day tour option that doesn't do the full loops, but just basins north of OF
02:08:54 <ynpvisitor95> with flexibility to wait for GF, walk Midway, whatever the people on board might like to do
02:09:02 <Dave from B> Yes, I think stops at Black Sand, Biscuit, Midway, 3 on FH Lake Drive and Ftn would be perfect
02:09:42 <Dave from B> Free shuttle allows you to hop off one and onto the next one
02:10:01 <vw> An open shuttle system though would allow whatever flexibility riders wanted within the confines of the start and end of the day.
02:10:32 <vw> A 'tour' doesn't allow that kind of flexibility.
02:10:56 <vw> Of course a shuttle system would cut into the profits of tour companies. THey might object.
02:12:26 <Dave from B> At some point, we have to forget about profits and think about visitor experience. This would improve it by getting some cars off the road
02:12:48 <Dave from B> Tour companies would find away to promote their service
02:12:48 <vw> I am with you there Dave.
02:13:06 <ynpvisitor94> No way the park would pay for a system. A vendor could do it for a flat fee. Would not be cheep. Probably talking 25 or 50 of the mid size busses. Limited time of use so the cost per seat would be high.
02:13:38 <ynpvisitor95> put it in the suggestion box Dave, they might read it
02:13:40 <Dave from B> Who pays for systems in Glacier, Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon?
02:14:02 <Dave from B> I may do that. Thanks, 95
02:14:39 <ynpvisitor95> If I were headed to Great Ftn, for example, I might not enjoy having to pull into Black Sand, Biscuit and Midway and looking for riders on the way
02:14:59 <ynpvisitor95> each of those stops would eat up 5-7 minutes
02:15:09 <Dave from B> That is true, 95. Too many stops lessens the interest of many
02:15:44 <Dave from B> Stops on glacier system are less than 2 minutes
02:15:45 <vw> There is a lot of discussion nationally right now about national parks. Yosemite is looking at having to limit number of visitors because the millions are 'wearing out' the park.
02:15:52 <ynpvisitor95> There may be liability problems too
02:16:27 <vw> I hear you 95, but for the average tourist? I don't think those few extra minutes would matter so much. Park needs to cater to the masses more than the minority for some things.
02:16:41 <ynpvisitor95> just leaving people at White Dome, for example, with no shelter if a storm came up
02:16:47 <vw> There is always a liability issue.
02:17:21 <lc> Lion0917
02:17:26 <vw> Lion 0917
02:17:58 <vw> We have to ask ourselves and the Park whether the status quo is acceptable.
02:18:45 <ynpvisitor94> Stoppbs from show programs about the parks. Raise the price of admission. Take down the websites.
02:20:07 <ynpvisitor95> ..
02:20:33 <ynpvisitor95> admission fee is a bargain compared to disneyland or other big attractions
02:20:49 <ynpvisitor94> I bet most of the visitors do not even see a problem. THey come from places that traffic jams and lines are normal
02:22:42 <vw> Park traffic has been a subject of discussion for a long time. There has even occasionally be talk of NO private vehicle use in the park. Subject isn't going away.
02:23:08 <ynpvisitor95> If I were "just" planning a hike to Fairy Falls, I'd use it, but I would not use it for geyser watching
02:23:15 <Dave from B> I'm afraid to even talk about another culprit of traffic....massive RV's
02:24:01 <ynpvisitor94> Want to take RV's off the road? Put in a campground at OF.
02:24:06 <Dave from B> Take last Thursday with my group of 12. We hiked Mystic Falls, then Fairy Falls Prismatic Overlook then Fountain. It would have been perfect
02:24:33 <Dave from B> 94, I'm not sure what the answer for RV's is. They just are always in the way in parking lots
02:25:17 <Dave from B> Mayve shuttle would allow people to park there RV at OF for the day and then take the shuttle to specific basins
02:25:39 <ynpvisitor94> If cars would not park in the RV/Buss spots!
02:26:13 <Dave from B> Yes, 94...I will have to admit 2 cars in our party used one RV spot at Ftn...so that is also a problem
02:26:44 <lc> my biggest problem with the traffic, 45 mph speed zone, driver going 30 when you can't pass then doing 50 when you have a chance to pass and won't pull over.
02:27:05 <Dave from B> No easy answers but I feel something should be done for at least the busiest 6 weeks of the season
02:27:29 <lc> and in areas where there is NOTHING to see.
02:27:54 <vw> That is another part of the problem: a huge capital investment for such a short period of time.
02:27:58 <Dave from B> Well, thanks very much for the discussion...I will be contacting the YPF to see if they are interested in the issue
02:29:10 <vw> Dave, I think it is a wonderful idea. I hope the park will respond to your contacting them.
02:29:15 <ynpvisitor94> I bet they have a team of specialist that are studying the issue of traffic.
02:29:50 <vw> Then Dave contacting them will show additional public interest in the issue.
02:30:04 <ynpvisitor94> As long as it is never solved, they have a job. Remember this is the government we are talking about. What they do makes no sense to anyone.
02:31:10 <lc> I think you hit the nail on the head, 94.
02:34:19 <ynpvisitor95> bigger parking lots would be nice
02:35:38 <ynpvisitor95> Dave did I read that a radio call got you into the Trifecta in time?
02:35:44 <Dave from B> Yes, if you have a shuttle system people have to park there vehicles somewhere
02:36:17 <Dave from B> 95, Yes....Becca called as we were between Firehole Lake turn and Fountain per my request
02:36:42 <Dave from B> And, then it was a MAD sprint from the parking lot up the hill to the overloook
02:36:49 <ynpvisitor94> Radios are nice. I think they should sell or rent receivers for the general public
02:36:49 <ynpvisitor95> I don't know if I would even hear my radio if I was there! That is great that someone responded
02:37:27 <Dave from B> Yes, I believe it was Kitt,; Becca would know for sure
02:37:53 <ynpvisitor94> Notice I said receivers. They could also use them for talking tours and emergency broadcast.
02:39:33 <ynpvisitor95> I bet Lynn was happy with her going-away-Fountain!
02:42:55 <lc> gtg, need to do a few things before the rain moves in this afternoon.
02:43:32 <ynpvisitor95> ..
02:44:56 <vw> bye lc.
02:45:10 <vw> I am a little behind the 8-ball today...
02:49:11 <Dave from B> Yes, thanks again dor the discussion everyone.
02:49:58 <vw> Little kids playing in the rocks by the bw. Always fun!
02:51:04 <Dave from B> Morning, Kevin...sleeping in today?
02:51:18 <vw> Hi K.
02:51:37 <vw> Left a bunch of eruptions for you. Should be a good mid-day.
02:51:37 <Kevin L> Morning
02:54:30 <ynpvisitor95> ..
02:55:15 <Kevin L> Running a bit later than normal. Been to the dentist this morning. Starting deadscope now.
02:55:54 <vw> Nothing happening K.
02:55:56 <Kevin L> Ugh. I was hoping for a picture. :p
02:55:57 <Dave from B> You would be much better off if you had a dentist in the family, Kevin.
02:56:15 <Kevin L> You aren't kidding Dave.
02:56:43 <Kevin L> This was just a scrubbing so not a big deal.
02:57:14 <Kevin L> It is saying bye to you vw!
02:57:25 <vw> Daisy 0956
03:03:26 <vw> I am going to head out. back later.
03:03:34 <vw> Hope everybody has a great day!
03:03:41 <Dave from B> bye, vw...nice chatting with you today
03:06:45 <ynpvisitor94> Not time to stair at of yet. Last was 9:17
03:18:34 <Kevin L> May need defense on this OF.
03:21:31 <Kevin L> Lion 1021
03:28:28 <Dave from B> Slept right thru that one
03:29:11 <Kevin L> Really couldn't zoom on it. Not much to see.
03:32:31 <Kevin L> OF 1032
03:39:04 <Kevin L> Yawn
03:39:13 <Kevin L> bhi ie 1039
03:40:42 <Dave from B> I miss the BH gatherings in this room
03:41:14 <Kevin L> They were fun.
03:46:25 <ynpvisitor75> Anyone note cub?
03:47:07 <Dave from B> I saw one earlier...haven't been paying close attention
03:47:29 <ynpvisitor75> More dome building from bhj
03:47:54 <ynpvisitor75> that was bh splashing
03:48:07 <Dave from B> Bigger crowd this time
03:48:17 <Dave from B> Up to double digits
03:48:41 <ynpvisitor75> Tourests, they do not know it is broke.
03:48:45 <Kevin L> They ususally pay more attention when BH splashes.
03:49:54 <Kevin L> Big wind gusts
03:49:56 <ynpvisitor75> Someone tell the kid to stop climbing the tree
03:50:50 <Kevin L> Or at least give him a cloth and some Windex mixed with Lime Away.
03:53:05 <ynpvisitor75> And all that talk about free shuttles. They don't even have to $ for lens cleaner
03:53:57 <Kevin L> "Free" shuttle = Increase in entrance fees.
03:54:18 <ynpvisitor75> 20 minutes down.
03:54:44 <Dave from B> It does seem it is easier to find money when "green issues" are involved
03:56:32 <Kevin L> There are certain keywords with Government that do that. Right now Green is one of them. Safety and Liability were two that usually go me action when I was working for NDOT. Oddly "saving tax dollars" never got me very far!
03:57:06 <Dave from B> Kevin, that sounds right
03:58:12 <ynpvisitor75> My pledge for the rest of the day. Only type about thermal features.
03:58:13 <Kevin L> I always tried to give the taxpayers the best bang for their buck that I could, even though I had to drag management kicking and screaming to do it.
03:59:18 <Kevin L> Wind has picked up from 1g3 to 12g18 in the last hour.
03:59:24 <Dave from B> 75, I understand. I wil try my best to follow suit. If anyone wants to talk about other issues, they are welcome to pm me.
03:59:29 <ynpvisitor75> Does not look big enough for a tour. Must be the post of group.
04:00:47 <ynpvisitor75> You all are welcome to type about anything you want.
04:01:20 <Kevin L> Cam is sure having a tough time keeping focus.
04:01:30 <Dave from B> It is easy to veer off subject. Lots of issues when it comes to Yellowstone
04:02:21 <ynpvisitor75> I wounder if it would focus better if the lens was clean?
04:02:38 <Dave from B> I'm actually surprised the cam is still stuck in a tree. Figured it would be attached to a bldg by now
04:03:28 <ynpvisitor75> It is in a fair spot. Remember how long it took to get the cable moved when they finished the center?
04:03:45 <Kevin L> Yes it would. The way the digital works is it only updates the pixels that change about every 30th of a second, so when they all change, it gives you bigger blocks as it trys to focus. Pulling back will help some.
04:03:57 <Dave from B> Yes, that was a long time
04:05:11 <ynpvisitor75> Not sure what the choices would be. Maybe on the lodge for a better view down basin. Power in winter may be an issue.
04:05:15 <Kevin L> I think they would have done it quicker, but the conduit broke and they had to locate the problem , dig it up and then fix it.
04:05:59 <Kevin L> Power is the main issue. I would love it on top of the Inn as you would have a great view in all directions, but power there is the major problem.
04:06:17 <ynpvisitor75> Also not sure about all the network stuff. Isn't it all in that little oputhouse sized building?
04:06:48 <Kevin L> It was. It is now is a room in the new photoshop building.
04:07:42 <ynpvisitor75> Looks like indicator is pooping out. About time for some nice splashes and a wait.
04:07:45 <ynpvisitor100> Are we overdue for a Lion minor?
04:07:52 <Kevin L> I think there is an internal problem with the cam wiring though. Right now we only get a pictre on the controls about half the time. They have not been able to locate that problem.
04:08:24 <Kevin L> Not sure on Lion. It went just before OF. Coming up to a Grand window soon.
04:08:59 <ynpvisitor75> Someone send a nice thankyou letter to Cannon and ask tem to provide a new home and wireing.
04:09:40 <Dave from B> When I win the lottery tomorrow, I will take care of all of our camera problems!:D
04:09:57 <ynpvisitor75> Sorry to tell you,
04:10:08 <Dave from B> ..
04:10:09 <ynpvisitor75> I will have the winning ticket.
04:10:23 <Dave from B> Well, then it will be your job, then!
04:10:35 <Kevin L> You won't have to worry about me having it.
04:12:21 <ynpvisitor75> Maybe a grant from Mercedes-Benz. They have wipers and squerters on headlights, or at least did.
04:14:05 <ynpvisitor75> I do not enjoy when the geysers sinc up. Leaves so much time with nothing to do but work.
04:14:47 <Dave from B> Ftn was 0847 duration 34
04:14:48 <Kevin L> I like the things they have over the cams on the race cars on TV where they can clean it at will. You would think they could adapt that for this cam.
04:15:45 <ynpvisitor75> I think those are rolls of film. If so would not work well for this.
04:15:50 <Dave from B> Has there been studies to see if Grand durations influence intervals?
04:16:38 <Kevin L> I am sure there have been, but I am not aware of any myself.
04:16:50 <ynpvisitor75> I can never get good answers about grand. In May we saw several doubles and the interval seemed short.
04:17:00 <Kevin L> I think Grand intervals are more affected by the sputs around it including Rift.
04:17:43 <Kevin L> Grand window in about 15m. Will do some Aurum fishing until then.
04:18:08 <Kevin L> We have a big Anenome now.
04:18:15 <ynpvisitor95> I was pretty close on my fountain guess. :D
04:18:55 <Dave from B> 2 minutes off?
04:19:29 <Kevin L> I guess we could do Lion while we are waiting.
04:19:41 <Kevin L> 1119 ie
04:20:40 <Dave from B> Kevin, any luck finding a room for Sept?
04:20:50 <Kevin L> Not yet.
04:21:12 <ynpvisitor75> Is that a side vent on lion or just water overflow?
04:21:35 <ynpvisitor75> See it on the left some times
04:21:58 <ynpvisitor75> All gone now. And cub starts
04:22:02 <Dave from B> lc 1122IE
04:22:05 <Kevin L> I think it is a vent.
04:23:04 <ynpvisitor75> Well time to go.
04:24:00 <Kevin L> Livescope decided to disconnect. Think they are doing work on my cable so I may lose control at times today.
04:32:24 <Kevin L> Time for Aurum to erupt.
04:32:45 <Dave from B> Where are you going, Kevin?
04:33:21 <Kevin L> Well I started Grand fishing.
04:33:34 <Kevin L> That will also work.
04:34:52 <ynpvisitor23> alfsmith
04:35:18 <Dave from B> Good evening, alfsmith
04:52:52 <ynpvisitor95> ,
05:10:02 <Kevin L> OF 1209
05:11:26 <Kevin L> Looks like a bit of a breeze out there.
05:13:45 <Kevin L> Time for Daisy/Grand fishing.
05:25:50 <Kevin L> Daisy 1225
05:25:52 <Dave from B> Looks like you finally hooked one
05:25:55 <Dave from B> Daisy 1225ie
05:26:35 <Kevin L> It is fighting too. Look at it shake the pole!
05:26:50 <Dave from B> :D
05:30:59 <Kevin L> Lion 1230
05:32:16 <Kevin L> Looks like bhi is ie @ 1232
05:35:17 <Dave from B> Hi, Jenna
05:36:18 <Jenna> hello
06:08:14 <Kevin L> Grand? 1308
06:08:29 <Kevin L> Yes.
06:09:24 <Kevin L> Not a very tall start
06:11:58 <Dave from B> ..
06:13:54 <Kevin L> Sure seems a bit weak.
06:14:58 <ynpvisitor26> maybe it is really windy
06:15:32 <Kevin L> Probably not too humid either.
06:16:27 <ynpvisitor26> 1307 is basin start time
06:16:32 <ynpvisitor26> hey come back
06:17:12 <Kevin L> Have to zoom out wind keep blowing the cam off the geyser
06:17:23 <ynpvisitor26> that was wild
06:17:36 <ynpvisitor26> so yes to windy there!
06:18:02 <ynpvisitor26> was hoping for a 2nd of course
06:18:28 <Kevin L> I don't think we will get one
06:18:43 <ynpvisitor26> all done now
06:21:08 <Dave from B> What % of Mornings have been duals or triples this year?
06:36:05 <Kevin L> bhi is ie at 1336
06:42:18 <Kevin L> of 1341
06:43:27 <ynpvisitor78> good, now we can watch bh
06:46:24 <Kevin L> Looks like BHI is off.
06:46:57 <ynpvisitor78> It quit because we were not watching
06:52:16 <Dave from B> That is a short BHI. Is that unusual during this false indy period?
07:04:11 <ynpvisitor78> Lots of people still by bh. Wonder if it is still indicating?
07:35:56 <Kevin L> Need dramamine laced NoDoz today.
07:54:31 <ynpvisitor86> ..
07:56:04 <Diane> Any word on the new fire?
07:56:42 <Kevin L> I haven't heard anything
07:56:43 <ynpvisitor86> it was supposed to make it to inciweb today, but I haven't checked.
07:56:52 <Kevin L> Daisy 1456
07:57:52 <Dave from B> Sounds like it is burning away from structures so they will let it go
07:58:09 <Dave from B> Hi, Diane
07:58:42 <Diane> Did I understand correctly that it was just a couple of miles from the south entrance road?
07:58:48 <Dave from B> inciweb shows it at 40 acres
07:58:50 <Diane> Hi., Dave.
07:58:50 <lc> where is the new fire?
07:59:00 <Dave from B> 3 miles east of entrance, I believe
07:59:08 <Dave from B> South Entrance
08:00:35 <Graham> lo
08:00:35 <lc> my guess BH will erupt early Friday morning.
08:00:44 <Dave from B> http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/3600/
08:00:48 <Kevin L> Looks like a lot of runoff from Giantess.
08:00:51 <Diane> Oh, the Yellowstone facebook page said 200 acres last evening.
08:00:52 <Dave from B> YNP fire update
08:01:01 <Dave from B> Hello, Graham
08:01:29 <ynpvisitor86> same day as F&M and we can have a pattern. :)
08:01:31 <Kevin L> You are early Graham.
08:01:50 <Graham> yeah couldn't stand it at work any more
08:02:03 <Graham> still too early for BH?
08:02:27 <Dave from B> You missed a short bhi
08:02:35 <Dave from B> in duration, that is
08:02:53 <Kevin L> What day is it Graham?
08:02:54 <Diane> That means the next one will have a BH, right? :)
08:03:13 <Dave from B> sure, why not!
08:03:18 <Graham> k, no durations listed other than the long pone
08:03:27 <Diane> I like your attitude, Dave.
08:03:45 <Graham> its day 26 Kevin
08:04:00 <Graham> actually day 25 :)
08:04:02 <Dave from B> It was only spotted for about 10 minutes
08:04:22 <Dave from B> Since the dosgers lost a road game?
08:04:29 <Dave from B> dodgers
08:05:07 <Kevin L> Is Pee Wee Reese back?
08:05:12 <Graham> 25 till arrival
08:05:40 <Dave from B> Most people probably don't even remember him
08:06:12 <Graham> Morning at 5 days tomorrow, its due
08:07:03 <Kevin L> I have a couple of balls with his autograph Dave (along with the rest of the team).
08:07:04 <Dave from B> BH is also at 5 days
08:07:31 <Dave from B> Walt alston was the manager then?
08:07:41 <Graham> so a couple more days till BH erupts?
08:07:50 <Kevin L> OF 1507
08:08:04 <Dave from B> Graham, I think you're going to get one tonight
08:08:21 <Dave from B> Around 1630
08:08:36 <Graham> not usually my shift today tho
08:08:46 <Graham> but is that when you leave Dave - and Kevin?
08:08:58 <ynpvisitor86> I just noticed that the static cam says "facebook.com/YellowstoneNPS" on the top
08:09:14 <ynpvisitor86> is that fairly new?
08:09:21 <Kevin L> I may fall asleep before my shift is done
08:09:43 <Graham> its been there for at least a couple of days
08:09:50 <Dave from B> 86, not sure how long that has been there
08:10:19 <ynpvisitor86> strange. it must be telling viewers which facebook site is "official"
08:10:29 <Graham> surp[rising they are advertizing - maybe FB gave them some cash?
08:10:32 <Kevin L> I think it showed up when the put the new view on the static cam.
08:14:44 <Graham> out for a walk, bbl
08:50:03 <vw> Good afternoon.
08:50:13 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
08:51:04 <vw> Oh no. But you got LS working Kevin. Good job!
08:51:14 <Dave from B> Who dares to wake us???
08:51:22 <Kevin L> I fooled it into thinking I wasn't here.
08:51:40 <Dave from B> And, here I thought you were just ignoring me
08:51:47 <vw> Too bad I can't wake the sleeping Giant, Dave.
08:52:11 <Dave from B> Or his wife
08:52:33 <Kevin L> I would have been happy with Aurum.
08:52:57 <vw> or his wife, Dave.
08:52:57 <Diane> Anybody know whenindy started this time? Not that it matters.
08:53:18 <vw> Or their garden pests? Kicking the BH?
08:53:27 <Dave from B> Pretty sad when we don't even notice until there are people standing over there
08:53:36 <Diane> :)
08:53:43 <vw> Diane, last time posted was 1335 ie.
08:53:58 <Diane> Its been off since then, but its on now.
08:55:11 <Kevin L> I either need a new monitor, eyes, or both.
08:55:24 <Diane> I wasn't watching, so I'm no help.
08:55:49 <Dave from B> Speaking of off...time for me to head home. Have a great day everyone! And, GO DODGERS
08:56:02 <Graham> back just in time for BH, yeah
08:56:09 <Kevin L> Bye Dave.
08:56:15 <Diane> Bye Dave
08:56:25 <Dave from B> I will try hard to be your sacrifice
08:56:43 <Kevin L> Tornado heading toward Cheyenne Wyoming right now.
08:56:45 <vw> Bye Dave,
08:56:53 <vw> That isn't good.
08:56:56 <Diane> Yikes.
08:57:15 <Kevin L> Don't normally see that.
08:57:36 <Graham> so 1552ie for BHI? i put it on GT
08:58:28 <vw> Hi Graham.
08:58:38 <Graham> hello
08:58:51 <vw> I am just here to see if I am needed on the cam this evening.
08:58:58 <Dave from B> Hope it misses them....Isn't Frontier Days going on now?
08:58:59 <Graham> off at 1558?
08:59:24 <Kevin L> There was a pretty good splash out of BH.
08:59:27 <vw> Dave, I think you may be right. Right time of the summer.
09:01:03 <Dave from B> ..
09:01:49 <ynpvisitor26> I thought Dave went home...?
09:02:15 <Graham> waiting for the BHI restart?
09:02:31 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
09:02:59 <Kevin L> How about Anenome?
09:03:03 <Dave from B> Still busy buying king crab...prices on small sizes are rising fast...trying to pick someone's pocket!
09:03:21 <Kevin L> Go for it Dave!
09:03:32 <Dave from B> That's the name of the game
09:03:37 <Kevin L> I heard halibut is way up this year too.
09:04:23 <Dave from B> Shrimp, Sockeye salmon have had the biggest increases in the past couple of months. Halibut is similar to last year, but it was high last year
09:05:55 <Kevin L> I wish that friend of mine would go back to Alaska and bring some more salmon. That was so good.
09:07:39 <Dave from B> I should UPS some to you when you are in Idaho
09:08:34 <Kevin L> I am hoping I make it to Idaho this year.
09:08:52 <Dave from B> You better...You need your geyser fix
09:10:37 <Graham> tried to pm you Kevin
09:10:41 <Graham> no luck
09:10:43 <Kevin L> Hey Dave, just got a nes flash that Tony Stewart broke both bones in his lower leg today.
09:15:35 <Dave from B> How did that happen?
09:18:15 <Dave from B> Noiw, I really am leaving...b7ye all
09:32:51 <Graham> OF 1632
09:38:28 <Graham> Sawmill is off
10:33:17 <Graham> aisy 1732
10:52:56 <lc> time for tv, have a good night everyone./
10:53:17 <Kevin L> bye
10:53:29 <Graham> bye lc, nothing happening here
10:59:57 <Graham> BHI 1758ie
11:00:10 <ynpvisitor89> Oh no, we are going to miss BH for OF.
11:00:27 <ynpvisitor89> Will they take the keys away from you if we see BH instead?
11:00:55 <ynpvisitor9> BH erupts?
11:01:10 <Graham> you dont actually think BH will erupt?
11:01:36 <ynpvisitor89> Someone promissed it would go about this time earlier today.
11:01:52 <ynpvisitor89> BIg splash
11:02:03 <Diane> I was just thinking the same thing - I believe Dave promised it for you, Graham.
11:02:16 <Graham> ah yes he did
11:02:29 <Graham> that was 90m ago, but I would take it
11:02:38 <ynpvisitor89> Looks like a possible for Lion also. Last time I wsaw that much steam, it blew.
11:02:43 <ynpvisitor9> indy seems to come a lot more often now
11:03:13 <Graham> could become perpetual too like the dwarf
11:05:40 <ynpvisitor89> More splashes I think
11:06:21 <Graham> it does that
11:07:15 <ynpvisitor89> As I recall BH goes splash, splash boom
11:07:36 <Graham> all i remember is splash splasy
11:08:04 <ynpvisitor89> Looks like cub is going
11:09:49 <Graham> OF 1809
11:10:08 <ynpvisitor89> Looks like BHI is done.
11:10:59 <ynpvisitor9> more frequent yet shorter durations
11:11:08 <Graham> still going
11:12:18 <Graham> now i dont see it
11:14:16 <ynpvisitor89> OF is as bothersome as squiters when fishing
11:15:33 <ynpvisitor89> Was that daisy or Castle?
11:15:54 <Graham> no
11:16:34 <Graham> theres steam at Castle
11:16:41 <Graham> just had Daisy
11:17:02 <ynpvisitor89> Just steam or some activity?
11:17:19 <ynpvisitor9> steam is activity
11:17:35 <Graham> Sawmill
11:18:02 <Graham> may have been splashing
11:18:10 <Graham> not erupting tho
11:51:00 <Graham> stepping away, bbs
12:03:53 <Andrew8> hello
12:04:32 <Graham> hello
12:05:13 <Graham> Sawmill quit
12:20:24 <Graham> Turban
12:30:00 <Graham> Dep 1929ie
12:33:38 <Graham> OF 1933
12:39:20 <Graham> Turban
12:43:58 <ynpvisitor70> But is the pool overflowing, and how many marmonts?
12:45:17 <Graham> bet its down now
12:45:31 <ynpvisitor70> I wnt a refund! I was promissed a 16:30 BH and it is now over an hour late.
12:46:05 <Graham> actually it was promised to me
12:46:21 <ynpvisitor70> A privet showing?
12:46:41 <ynpvisitor70> How does that work?
12:47:23 <Graham> Dave didn't say anyone else would get one'
12:47:42 <Graham> I can shut down the cam and watch it myself on LS - you can still watch on static
12:48:10 <Graham> guess i could shut down statgic too
12:48:16 <Graham> both of them
12:48:22 <ynpvisitor70> Get the joker to gas the pwol in the basin and you have it made.
12:48:38 <ynpvisitor70> people
12:48:39 <Graham> i might let them watch along
12:49:00 <Graham> actually i did :)
12:49:11 <Graham> just got the cam to play a loop for you all
12:49:26 <ynpvisitor70> If BagtMan showed up at least it would be some kind of excitement.
12:49:52 <ynpvisitor70> I think I need a bigger keyboard.
12:51:26 <ynpvisitor68> Not sure if anyone's at Grand right now, headed out now. MK
12:53:18 <Graham> ok, good luck.
12:54:08 <Graham> MK better hurry for next Turban
12:56:05 <Graham> Turban
12:57:56 <Graham> MK can slow down
12:58:29 <ynpvisitor70> Anyone have a pet beaver they could let loose by Grand? Would improve the vew some.
12:59:09 <Graham> Oblong?
12:59:53 <ynpvisitor70> Is so there are some unhappy people if I remember correctly.
13:00:26 <Graham> why?
13:00:43 <ynpvisitor70> Doesn't it delay Grand?
13:03:36 <Graham> no relationship between Oblong and Grand
13:03:41 <Graham> you might be thinking of Rift
13:03:53 <ynpvisitor70> That is the one.
13:06:34 <ynpvisitor70> Is oblong the one between Grand and the river down basin?
13:06:55 <ynpvisitor70> Can be seen from Grand.
13:07:11 <Graham> just over the bridge down from Grand, before you get to Giant
13:07:31 <Graham> you can see the water from Grand, especially the better eruptions
13:07:35 <ynpvisitor70> Thanks.
13:08:48 <ynpvisitor70> Missed seeing it this spring. After missing Grand for Riverside, was not going to leave a promissing searis of pool fills. Tuned out I would have had time if I walked fast.
13:09:26 <Graham> BHI 2009ns
13:09:50 <ynpvisitor70> Just saw it when I switched cams
13:12:37 <kcmule> daisy 20:12
13:13:20 <ynpvisitor70> Do I have it figured and is that Turban?
13:14:08 <ynpvisitor70> Nice lighting
13:15:02 <Graham> Turban might have been 2013
13:16:43 <Graham> goodnight
13:16:59 <kcmule> nite
13:17:09 <ynpvisitor70> Cool we should get a BH for sure now.
13:17:39 <Graham> :)
13:17:53 <ynpvisitor70> Think lion is waiking up?
13:17:53 <Graham> i hope you do but I am not staying up to see
13:22:18 <ynpvisitor70> Splashes!
13:23:50 <ynpvisitor70> More splashes, keep going it is time!
13:25:12 <ynpvisitor70> There it goes I hope
13:25:39 <ynpvisitor70> Most excitement I have had all day
13:26:37 <ynpvisitor70> Lookslike we may have a lion
13:27:28 <kcmule> going back for next turban
13:27:45 <ynpvisitor16> Nice move Craig
13:30:16 <kcmule> looks like 20:29

13:31:24 <kcmule> 20:30 on grand
13:33:52 <kcmule> wt is also ie

13:37:44 <ynpvisitor70> Any odds on a tripple?
13:38:21 <Kevin L> Don't bet the rent!
13:40:41 <ynpvisitor70> Who turned off the water?
13:43:57 <ynpvisitor70> A cone building minor. Someone should be logging al this.
13:50:48 <ynpvisitor55> ,,
14:03:17 <kcmule> bhi off
14:04:49 <Kevin L> And BH sticks its tongue out at us as a parting gesture.
