01:15:38 <Kitt> Hello numbers
01:16:00 <Kitt> not much going on I guess?
01:20:04 <ynpvisitor1> hey Kitt, lc here.
01:20:18 <ynpvisitor1> you at home?
01:50:47 <kcmule> aurum
01:52:13 <ynpvisitor17> Dang. Missed Aurum by _that_ much.
01:52:56 <Jenna> OF 852
02:01:22 <ynpvisitor17> Lovely Anemone dual.
03:20:45 <ynpvisitor17> Surprised Grand hasn't shown up yet. Almost nine hours now.
03:22:40 <ynpvisitor1> maybe it went when nobody was looking.
03:25:16 <ynpvisitor1> hi Jenna
03:25:18 <ynpvisitor17> Always possible, though Grand is harder to miss than most. Long duration, and Turban+Vent steam afterwards.
03:25:53 <ynpvisitor1> yes, don't think it was missed.
03:26:31 <Jenna> hi 1
03:27:09 <Jenna> Amber Alert issued for a little boy missing from the Canyon Campground
03:27:18 <Jenna> oh morning lc
03:27:18 <lc> sad about the young eagle.
03:29:36 <Jenna> it is! I was heartbroken
03:30:45 <ynpvisitor17> Daisy 10:30ie
03:30:53 <lc> maybe the other two will make it.
03:31:18 <Jenna> hopefully!
03:31:33 <Jenna> Maureen and I were discussing how involved they have been in watching over them
03:31:53 <Jenna> but when they were in the nest, it was all about hands off and letting nature take its course
03:33:43 <lc> OF 1033
03:37:14 <ynpvisitor84> Amber alert is creepy - they don't suspect just lost in the woods?
03:41:49 <lc> how old is the boy?
03:48:51 <ynpvisitor84> .
03:50:00 <Jenna> 7 years old
04:11:46 <ynpvisitor17> VEC Grand prediction is 2:50pm. That suggests it went at about 7:50 this morning. GT doesn't have the Daisy or Old Faithful eruptions around then either.
04:12:49 <lc> good to hear that.
04:26:25 <ynpvisitor17> Stream froze again (slow internet connection, probably). So I'm going to head out now.
04:33:28 <Graham> hello
04:39:28 <ynpvisitor84> hi Graham
04:39:40 <ynpvisitor84> hi Graham
04:40:21 <lc> hey Graham
04:40:28 <Graham> quiet here, expected more people since we are in the BH window
04:41:28 <lc> people waiting for the text.
05:09:14 <Graham> OF 1208
05:10:11 <ynpvisitor2> That was one of the better starts I've seen.
05:14:38 <Jenna> the little boy has been found
05:16:03 <Graham> good but i didnt know about it
05:16:40 <Jenna> he wasn't missing for very long
06:03:37 <ynpvisitor100> Burbling in Split Cone
06:04:03 <Graham> zzzzz
06:07:01 <Graham> Daisy 1306
06:07:02 <ynpvisitor100> zzzzzz on Geyser Hill too.
06:10:58 <Graham> BHI
06:11:08 <ynpvisitor100> Oh. That's new.
06:11:14 <Graham> 1308 per GT
06:12:05 <Graham> text sent
06:13:25 <Graham> not
06:13:26 <Graham> many
06:13:27 <Graham> ppl
06:13:28 <Graham> woke
06:13:29 <Graham> up
06:13:42 <Graham> WAKE
06:13:43 <Graham> UP
06:13:52 <Graham> hi kitt
06:13:53 <lc> I was about to go to sleep.
06:14:01 <Graham> hi lc
06:14:08 <Kitt> it is bright out there
06:14:17 <Kitt> can barely see indy
06:15:06 <lc> hey Graham
06:15:11 <Graham> lunchtime is over
06:15:21 <Graham> run out of lower hams
06:15:33 <Graham> come over from Grand
06:15:45 <lc> looks like Udo on the left.
06:16:19 <ynpvisitor44> Is Lion due? It looks like it's splashing around a little bit.
06:16:38 <Graham> udo posted BHI
06:16:45 <Graham> no lion seen yet, so its due
06:17:04 <Graham> wb kc
06:17:11 <Kitt> are they still waiting for Grand since the 01--?
06:17:13 <ynpvisitor100> Lion could have its initial eruption any time. But it can also splash around for hours.
06:17:22 <lc> Lion should be due pretty soon.
06:17:33 <Graham> Grand prediction is 1450
06:17:46 <Graham> Lion before dark?
06:17:46 <kcmule> ty, thought i would watch the afternoon show
06:18:16 <Graham> are they doing 3h window for Grand?
06:18:43 <Kitt> so was there a 6 hour interval?
06:19:04 <Graham> i guess the cam was down for a while this morning?
06:19:32 <Kitt> oh
06:20:03 <Graham> but that would make the prior interval around 6h
06:20:32 <ynpvisitor100> A few weeks ago the VEC was using 7 hours +/- 90 minutes for Grand.
06:21:05 <Graham> k, thanks 100
06:21:18 <ynpvisitor44> There she goes! Yay!
06:21:38 <Kitt> wow
06:21:47 <Kitt> didn't realize my screen was froze
06:21:47 <ynpvisitor71> vec is currently using 7.5hr ± 1.5hr
06:21:49 <Graham> BH 1321
06:21:51 <ynpvisitor71> for grand
06:22:02 <Graham> k, thanks 71 whoever you people are
06:22:22 <Kitt> hm, must be breezy, bee being knocked sideways
06:22:45 <ynpvisitor44> The cam seems to be moving around too, so I would agree on the breezy.
06:23:56 <Mara> Huzzah for Beehive :)
06:24:17 <ynpvisitor71> Grand time is now posted from this morning
06:24:54 <ynpvisitor100> Wow. Six-hour inteval exactly!
06:27:36 <Kitt> it did 5 hour intervals for a while last year so 6 isn't shocking
06:28:03 <Kitt> we had a 6 hour ?9 min. earlier this summer
06:28:27 <Kitt> that's why we have been getting there by the 6 hour mark
06:28:48 <Kitt> well that was lovely
06:28:52 <Kitt> back to lunch
06:29:00 <Kitt> bbl
06:29:05 <ynpvisitor100> I see. Thanks for the Grand info.
06:29:48 <Graham> the 5h intervals were 2 years ago Kitt

07:39:40 <vw> Good afternoon!
07:40:15 <Graham> hi there, wb stranger
07:40:28 <vw> Anybody here know if there has been any wildlife sightings since new cam went active?
07:40:31 <vw> Hi Graham!
07:41:09 <Graham> i have not seen or heard of any
07:41:12 <vw> Trying to avoid smoke/haze here in Billings, so spending some time at the computer for now. Air conditioning is another motivation.
07:41:51 <vw> I am really looking forward to seeing how wildlife looks on cam as well as how the cam can track any.
07:43:08 <Graham> yeah cant wait to test the auto tracking features
07:43:17 <Graham> is smoke bad?
07:43:37 <vw> Smoke is working up to be bad. I wouldn't want to be out in it all day.
07:44:41 <Graham> smells bad as well as hanging in the air?
07:44:42 <vw> No fires that I know of in MT. Haze coming mostly from Idaho, Oregon and WA. Some Canadian fires had been a problem but change in wind direction took us out of the line of those smoke streams.
07:45:01 <Betty> Hi all, Hey vw, haven´t seen you for a while :-)
07:45:04 <vw> Smell isn't so much of a problem as I think we are inured to it.
07:45:09 <vw> Hi Betty!
07:46:05 <vw> Been lurking some lately, but don't have much to say most days so just watch. :)
07:46:17 <Betty> hehe

07:55:11 <kcmule> thx it was a good time, and educational
07:56:10 <vw> So.... how many flavors of ale ARE available in certain areas of Germany, kc? :)

14:15:01 <kcmule> lion 21:14
14:28:50 <ynpvisitor81> What's all the excitement about on the area near the streaming cam?
14:29:29 <ynpvisitor84> bear cub in a tree
14:30:19 <ynpvisitor81> thanks
14:36:39 <ynpvisitor31> I see it
14:37:39 <ynpvisitor100> Well that is a new one!
14:38:05 <ynpvisitor31> to the right!
14:38:50 <ynpvisitor31> 2nd tree in from the bw
14:39:05 <ynpvisitor31> you can see the branches moving and the dark spot moving
14:39:30 <ynpvisitor31> there ya go!
14:39:49 <ynpvisitor100> It was looking for a pic a nic basket.
14:40:08 <ynpvisitor31> yep! You got it KC!
14:40:35 <ynpvisitor84> maybe cam could help find momma griz, I bet they are wondering!
14:40:57 <ynpvisitor100> Fast critter.
14:41:09 <ynpvisitor31> part monkey!
14:43:29 <ynpvisitor100> Is this the first bear caught on the cam this year?
14:44:08 <vw> Seriously cool!
14:44:54 <ynpvisitor100> I am 100. Won't let me change name.
14:44:58 <ynpvisitor34> so it is a grizzly cub?
14:45:03 <vw> 100, we were talking earlier about the lack of wildlife since new cam went online, so I am going to venture that yes, this is the 1st bear of the year.
14:45:37 <ynpvisitor100> That is what I thought.
14:45:57 <vw> Someone with a spotlight on the bw? Wonder where mama bear is?
14:45:58 <ynpvisitor100> kc is doing a great job with it.
14:46:07 <ynpvisitor34> I wonder when mom will come around with all the lights from LE and such
14:46:16 <vw> whoever is on the cam is doing an awesome job!
14:46:17 <ynpvisitor100> There are rangers all over the place with spots.
14:46:43 <ynpvisitor25> they need the sun
14:46:54 <ynpvisitor25> Steve's sun that is
14:46:59 <vw> aaaahhhh. That makes sense. Wondered what the flashing was. Just thought I had had too much caffeine today.
14:47:25 <ynpvisitor34> is cub in center of cam view right now?
14:47:40 <vw> yeap. Kinda fuzzy.
14:48:07 <ynpvisitor100> When it moves it shows better.
14:48:15 <ynpvisitor34> kind of high up
14:48:38 <ynpvisitor31> I think the bear is behind the large tree on the right of the screen and up a bit
14:49:36 <kcmule> capture hopefully in next 10 mins
14:50:22 <Kitt> do you mean the bear or a photo?
14:50:55 <kcmule> streaming capture
14:51:02 <Kitt> ah
14:51:29 <Kitt> it is dark in Worland, so it is amazing what about 200 miles can do for lighting
14:51:42 <ynpvisitor34> dark at OF too, it is the cam
14:52:10 <Kitt> oh, looked like blue sky behind trees
14:52:14 <vw> Spots from LE help too.
14:52:56 <Kitt> wonder if it is the same bear that has been frequenting the area all summer
14:53:21 <ynpvisitor34> wonder where mama is
14:54:00 <vw> Kitt, do you know if they have tried to relocate? Not good if so and it keeps coming back.
14:54:19 <Kitt> I don't think so
14:54:42 <Kevin L> Yea! It let me change names!
14:54:45 <vw> This might be the final straw to attempt at relocation.
14:54:50 <Kevin L> Or not.
14:54:51 <BB> I was told last week by a very condescending ranger that the bear doesn't come up this way
14:55:03 <BB> so much for that, I guess
14:55:05 <vw> vw here Kevin. I tried and it wouldn't let me.
14:55:11 <Kitt> we've been warned about it occasionally being up in the Solitary trail
14:55:25 <vw> Hi BB!
14:55:32 <Kevin L> Same here. I guess it just doesn't like us.
14:55:33 <cb> Yes! let there be light!
14:55:38 <BB> hi vw and everyone
14:55:38 <ynpvisitor34> is it a cub?
14:55:40 <BB> hey cb
14:55:42 <vw> I can't believe a ranger believes that. Bear have been in the area often.
14:55:43 <Kevin L> Hi BB. Nice to see you.
14:55:52 <Kitt> I have never seen it
14:56:09 <Kitt> I was told there was a young griz in the area
14:56:10 <BB> we ran into it early in the morning on the boardwalk between Lion and Sawmill
14:56:13 <cb> Hey BB!
14:56:26 <ynpvisitor34> oh so no mama coming then
14:56:33 <ynpvisitor34> maybe they will relocate it now
14:56:41 <ynpvisitor34> close to VEC here
14:57:27 <cb> I saw your post about the bear on FB BB! Would you say it is a year old or older?
14:58:02 <BB> can't really say, cb... it was between the trees and it was before 5 am, so still pretty dark
14:58:41 <BB> and we didnt get a good look... we saw the outline and it jumping across the BW and figured better get out of there
14:59:02 <BB> but we thought maybe a yearling, it wasn't that big
14:59:05 <cb> LOL! I hear THAT!
15:00:56 <vw> Could be an interesting evening for LE. They really can't close that area off, so do they have to hang around and wait for the bear to come down?
15:01:18 <Kevin L> May be a long night for them!
15:01:26 <Kevin L> Hi cb.
15:01:48 <cb> Hey Kevin!
15:03:32 <Kitt> wonder if they decided to quit spotlighting it
15:03:43 <Kitt> bear might get down and leave
15:04:18 <cb> yes. and if they turn off the binking lights!
15:05:03 <Kitt> oh well, back to dinner
15:05:10 <Kitt> hope all ends well
15:05:12 <Kitt> night
15:05:44 <kcmule> need more time but capture is coming
15:08:05 <cb> Good luck with da Bar!
15:08:22 <cb> Nice job kc!
15:09:48 <vw> Kevin, thanks for heads up. kc, thanks for great camera work.
15:10:01 <vw> Way past my bedtime. G'night all!
15:10:48 <Kevin L> That was fun. Back to Arena Football.
15:16:12 <kcmule>
15:24:41 <ynpvisitor34> great capture kc, thanks
15:24:53 <ynpvisitor34> looked like it was moving from tree to tree
15:25:53 <kcmule> yw
15:54:42 <Kitt> Hello
15:54:55 <Kitt> Will said the bear looked like a yearling
15:55:21 <Kitt> so this would be a different bear from the one I have been watching for all summer
15:55:36 <Kitt> that one was 2 or 3 years old
15:56:28 <Kitt> night all
