23:58:24 <Betty> Lion was 0650
23:58:42 <Betty> Morning Dave from B
00:00:04 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
00:13:53 <Paul L.> Morning
00:14:06 <Dave from B> Hi Paul L.
00:37:34 <ynpvisitor29> I notice that the camera has been bouncing a lot without any wind
00:38:03 <Dave from B> Bear? Bison? Ladder?
00:38:14 <ynpvisitor29> wondering if that could have been caused by a quake
00:38:27 <Dave from B> That was my next choice!
00:39:10 <ynpvisitor29> I notice it was shaking hard
00:40:13 <Dave from B> That explanation sounds most likely
00:40:35 <ynpvisitor90> Note the times and then check against the seismograph.
00:40:44 <ynpvisitor29> it was moving more then wind would shake it I checked the wind speed at the time the there was no wind
00:41:20 <ynpvisitor90> When was that 29? No significant or even moderate quakes lately in the area.
00:43:02 <ynpvisitor29> ummm it was yesterday the 23rd
00:43:17 <ynpvisitor90> Also, when you check the weather, are you checking the weather at OF? NOAA all purpose page for YNP is based on conditions at Lake.
00:43:59 <ynpvisitor29> the date was the 23rd of Feb 2015
00:44:12 <ynpvisitor90> Need a time.
00:44:36 <ynpvisitor29> it was early afternoon
00:45:27 <ynpvisitor90> There was no seismic activity at that time in the area.
00:45:39 <ynpvisitor90> http://www.quake.utah.edu/req2webdir/recenteqs/Maps/Yellowstone.html
00:45:40 <Dave from B> We had lots of wind yesterday in Billings
00:46:00 <ynpvisitor90> http://quake.utah.edu/helicorder/yft_webi_1d.htm
00:46:06 <ynpvisitor29> I know there was major magma intrusion
00:46:23 <ynpvisitor29> no quakes
00:46:33 <ynpvisitor90> The camera is on a lodge pole pine. Those trees are very susceptible to the slightest breezes or movement.
00:47:12 <ynpvisitor29> would that include from magma intrusion
00:47:42 <ynpvisitor90> If there is any seismic activity significant enough to move the earth/ground, it will show on the seismograph.
00:48:24 <ynpvisitor90> When I say 'move' I am referring to movement that can be measured by the seismograph.
00:49:46 <ynpvisitor90> As the seismo can measure road equipment and buses driving on the road in the OF area, you can tell the equipment is pretty sensitive.
00:50:41 <ynpvisitor90> Guess they were looking for a super-volcano explanation?
00:56:27 <ynpvisitor29> no I was just asking questions
00:59:59 <ynpvisitor29> I'm just trying to learn things here
01:00:34 <Dave from B> My guess is it was wind.
01:04:08 <ynpvisitor29> is there any truth to the articles online that president Obama gag ordered Yellowstone and nsgs from releasing info to the public
01:04:45 <ynpvisitor90> Sorry 29, had to step away for a while.
01:05:21 <ynpvisitor90> No. There is not likely any truth to those online articles or rumors. What would be the point anyway?
01:06:07 <ynpvisitor29> I was reading an article that Obama wants to avoid mass panic and chaos
01:07:37 <ynpvisitor90> That is assuming the comments about a super-volcano eruption is likely. Afraid most here would put those in the 'nuts' catagory.
01:10:03 <ynpvisitor29> I saw the video from Dr. Hessler the onsite geologist says we have a 2 week window
01:10:21 <ynpvisitor90> As Dave said, the movement of the camera was most likely due to wind. The wind was blowing very hard in the greater Yellowstone area yesterday. Livingston recorded gusts around 40 mph throughout the day.
01:11:00 <ynpvisitor90> A 2 week window likely referred to IF there was super-volcano activity, not that there IS such activity.
01:13:27 <ynpvisitor29> explain the readings over the past week of major magma intrusion
01:14:10 <ynpvisitor90> Hessler and all other REPUTABLE scientists have debunked any suggestion that super-volcano activity is occurring.
01:14:50 <ynpvisitor29> all the magma intrusion readings are getting constant
01:15:54 <ynpvisitor90> Don't know what you mean when you say major magma intrusion. There is no evidence that the magma flow FAR below the surface of YNP is changing substantially.
01:15:59 <ynpvisitor29> I don't believe they debunked this Dr Hessler said we could see an eruption in weeks
01:16:25 <ynpvisitor90> Who are 'they'????
01:17:47 <ynpvisitor90> We could see change any time. Are we likely to see change any time soon? Would that be soon by our standards or by geological standards?
01:18:20 <ynpvisitor90> And 'could' doesn't even come close to 'will.;
01:21:41 <ynpvisitor90> If you want to see 'major magma intrusion' as you call it, go to Hawaii, Italy, Indonesia, etc. Any place with an active volcano. Don't bother with YNP.
01:21:56 <Jake> Possible F&M eruption yesterday morning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBb0ga7K9qE&t=1h9m45s
01:22:08 <ynpvisitor90> Cool. Thanks Jake.
01:22:48 <ynpvisitor29> I believe we are going to see major change in the Norris geyser valley and ole faithful
01:23:41 <ynpvisitor90> There is always change 29.
01:24:11 <ynpvisitor90> If change means Plume will start up again, I am all for it.
01:24:32 <Jake> ooooh I see my expertise can come in handy here
01:24:55 <ynpvisitor90> PLEASE step in Jake!!!!
01:25:34 <ynpvisitor29> first two major things we will see is ground deformation in the geyser valley and ole faithful will stop
01:25:42 <Jake> yes, there is major magma intrusion on the rise in Yellowstone in 2015, possible eruption dates are April 17 - early November 2015. Please advise all friends and family to STAY AWAY from the Yellowstone area, for their safety
01:26:22 <ynpvisitor90> :D :D :D :D :D
01:27:22 <Dave from B> Goody...I'll be able to get more rooms now.:)
01:28:08 <ynpvisitor29> thank you jake
01:29:20 <ynpvisitor90> Feel free to spread that news on any websites you visit 29.
01:30:00 <ynpvisitor29> I knew something was going on
01:30:27 <Dave from B> 29, are you currently going to school at West Virginia?
01:34:47 <ynpvisitor47> Especially stay away in July and August!
01:36:08 <ynpvisitor47> Cool if that was F&M yesterday. Anyone call VEC to have them check ?
01:37:12 <ynpvisitor29> any one seen the movie SUPER VOLCANO based on yellowstone
01:37:44 <ynpvisitor29> you all need to watch SUPER VOLCANO
01:38:04 <Dave from B> meep
01:39:24 <ynpvisitor29> I believe this movie is right what is going to happen
01:40:16 <Dave from B> 29, I agree....eventually...could be 100,000 years from now
01:40:48 <ynpvisitor29> no its gonna happen soon
01:41:01 <ynpvisitor29> the proof is there
01:41:27 <ynpvisitor29> all the activity going on lately
01:41:58 <ynpvisitor29> all the quakes all the major magma intrusion
01:42:02 <Dave from B> What specific activity. Do you have a link?
01:47:12 <ynpvisitor47> 29 is playing with you Dave
01:48:04 <Dave from B> 47, I'm playing along:)
01:48:04 <ynpvisitor47> Trying anyway
01:48:13 <ynpvisitor47> Oh ok
01:48:52 <Dave from B> I think caving addiction has affected his brain.:)
01:49:04 <Dave from B> Right, Ryan?
01:55:26 <Jake> Penta yesterday morning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBb0ga7K9qE&t=29m16s
01:56:12 <Kent> http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/activity/status.php Just in case 29 is serious and not a demented caving troll :)
01:56:21 <Jake> I meant that as a question
01:56:58 <Dave from B> :D
02:02:10 <ynpvisitor90> Jake, do you have a time on that possible Penta?
02:05:49 <ynpvisitor90> What I saw at that 29m16s mark started out looking like OT, but they did shift to behind the trees suggesting Penta.
02:06:19 <ynpvisitor90> At the 26:26 mark it is definitely behind the trees.
02:08:43 <Rich> G'Day Everyone
02:08:53 <Dave from B> Hi, Rich
02:09:11 <Rich> Hi Dave frpm B
02:09:23 <Kent> Morning Rich.
02:09:40 <Kent> Good to see you about
02:09:54 <Rich> Hi Kent
02:11:03 <Rich> Trip planning for YNP this spring.
02:11:57 <Kent> Good news. I hope it works out well for you.
02:12:01 <Dave from B> So, that was you trying to scare some tourists away earlier so you can find a room?:)
02:12:26 <Rich> Romm is porta le, g
02:12:45 <Rich> Trying yo scare Plume into doing something
02:15:31 <Dave from B> Rich, when are you going to OF?
02:16:25 <Rich> Sometime around end of April firat part of May, unless that is a bad yimd.
02:16:34 <Rich> Time
02:17:32 <Jenna> OF 0918
02:18:34 <Rich> Friend has a rv, he wants to see YNP
02:19:14 <ynpvisitor65> CC has start at 0914
02:20:59 <Jenna> ah thanks
02:21:34 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
02:21:51 <Jake> have to resort to biological warfare to free up rooms. Yosemite had a huge wave of cancellations a few years ago when some guests got Hanta Virus
02:22:00 <Jenna> hi Dave
02:33:28 <Betty> hello all
02:34:25 <Jake> Rivserside ie
02:34:26 <Rich> Hi Betty
02:45:48 <Betty> I just read the log, I always knew the end is near... :-D
02:56:42 <Kevin L> If the supervolcano does erupt can you cancel your Xanterra reservations without the $15 penalty?
02:57:31 <Rich> Sure, if you have an afterlife connetion, g
03:00:53 <Dave from B> haha Kevin
03:03:11 <Betty> reminds me of Ryan a few weeks ago...
03:03:34 <Dave from B> It defintely has his "signature"
03:03:50 <Betty> you thought that too?
03:04:10 <Dave from B> A good friend pointed me in that direction!
03:05:54 <Betty> ah, ok :-)
03:07:58 <ynpvisitor37> It kinda does look like the of dome is covering more of the boardwalk on the hill.
03:08:08 <ynpvisitor37> Or it could be just the steam and cam crud
03:09:00 <ynpvisitor37> On the bright side, if we do get a supper bulg under the cam, maybe we will get to see the grand pool.
03:10:15 <Kevin L> At least Aurum anyway!
03:12:20 <ynpvisitor37> Besides if they knew the end was neer, they would start trapping wolves and relocate them.
03:12:56 <Kevin L> Maybe that is how the one got to the Grand Canyon.
03:13:32 <Dave from B> Be careful what you say...could go viral and make it to the Billings Gazette
03:14:28 <ynpvisitor37> Well how about bears out of hibernation early because of increased ground temperature.
03:15:16 <Kevin L> I thought that was because they moved daylight savings time up.
03:16:53 <ynpvisitor37> Bigfoot wants to see Yellowstone before the end of the park as we know it!
03:17:48 <ynpvisitor37> Park selling off lake trout before they poach in lake.
03:18:16 <ynpvisitor37> You could put an add in with a special on trout if they bite on that one.
03:19:20 <ynpvisitor37> Well I tried to make bh mad. Did not work. Of to do something productive soon.
03:19:26 <Kevin L> Dave could take some of them off their hands.
03:20:43 <ynpvisitor76> another Grand interval under 6 hours!
03:20:59 <Dave from B> I would love to sell Yellowsonte Lake Trout
03:23:40 <ynpvisitor76> looks a lot warmer today
03:25:49 <ynpvisitor37> Anyone know if they have mercury warnings? Most all of our lakes have warnings because of our volcanic past
03:30:32 <ynpvisitor37> Must be time to feed the coyote or something.
03:30:41 <ynpvisitor100> I think I will keep the number today.
03:31:41 <ynpvisitor100> Should anyone be interested in how last weekend's trip went: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=999628663400629&l=a168d2e686
03:31:55 <ynpvisitor100> Somewhere in there I really messed up my upper right arm.
03:32:48 <Betty> ugh, I´d never could do that, Ryan!!
03:32:55 <ynpvisitor100> My trip in there was the first to photo the cave. It was found last January (2014).
03:33:36 <ynpvisitor37> Well enjoy.
03:33:37 <ynpvisitor100> The entrance is 200ft of tight but tall passage squeezing, then 600ft of impressively large borehole, then 300ft of that crap to a formation area.
03:34:43 <ynpvisitor100> The main passage has two levels, a large lower trunk and a smaller upper level that conjoin at many places making really cool window rooms like this: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=999628583400637&l=16e6e41c33
03:39:48 <ynpvisitor76> you were 29 earlier, right?
03:40:23 <ynpvisitor100> Me? I havent been on in a week or so.
03:40:52 <Dave from B> And, I'm selling oceanfront property in Arizona!:)
03:41:10 <ynpvisitor100> Reading log now. Nope, I was in Dynamics class.
03:41:47 <ynpvisitor76> we do not believe you
03:41:52 <ynpvisitor100> Whoever that was took one from my playbook. I promise it wasnt me.
03:42:12 <ynpvisitor100> If it was, I'd reveal myself when I was done, like the last two times.
03:42:28 <Kevin L> Volcanoes are dynamatic.
03:42:51 <ynpvisitor100> :D No, I would have said it was me. I own up to me shenanigans,
03:43:21 <ynpvisitor100> HA, I am reading this, it is great. Nice question Dave
03:43:30 <ynpvisitor76> maybe another spot with time on their hands...?
03:44:01 <ynpvisitor100> Perhaps, I am asking now. You may have had a genuine nut.
03:44:21 <ynpvisitor76> as compared to a sput nut?
03:44:57 <ynpvisitor100> Lol. No, I had a dynamics exam last night so I slept in today. Last time I was here was on Friday before I left for my trip.
03:45:06 <ynpvisitor76> poof
03:45:15 <ynpvisitor100> I have class from 0730 to 1000 MDT
03:45:34 <ynpvisitor100> You couldnt pay me enough to try to be on a computer in Dynamics class.
03:51:27 <Will B> I can attest to that after the stories Ryan has told me. The professor even kicked out his TA when his phone rang in class.
03:52:00 <ynpvisitor100> I got called out in class this morning for "having my head down and sleeping". I was taking notes in the back row.
03:52:12 <ynpvisitor100> Usually I am in the front, ran late this morning because ice.
03:55:36 <Betty> Daisy
03:55:44 <ynpvisitor...> Yes
03:56:50 <Dave from B> Well, Ryan....you taught #29 well!:D
03:57:58 <ynpvisitor100> Apparently they read that log, it did sound a lot like me.
03:59:06 <Dave from B> Ryan, are you going to be able to vacation at YNP this year?
04:00:54 <ynpvisitor100> Probably notNot unless we go in December.
04:01:32 <ynpvisitor100> And even that is still up for debate. Last summer was the summer of geysers. This summer is the summer of *big* cave trips.
04:02:19 <ynpvisitor100> I wont be surprised if I dont make it back for a few years again :(
04:13:01 <Kevin L> We are losing Ryan to the darkside.
04:14:40 <ynpvisitor100> :D
04:14:47 <ynpvisitor100> Not caving, school and money lol
04:15:37 <ynpvisitor100> Taking the opportunity to do some great things this summer including trips to rooms over 12acres in size, and 300ft pits.
04:21:49 <Kevin L> Coming into a Grand window.
04:23:23 <Betty> Artemesia steam?
04:24:04 <ynpvisitor95> anyone know why the mammoth springs camera is down or the upper geyser basin camera is down
04:24:20 <ynpvisitor100> .....there's a UGB cam?
04:24:30 <ynpvisitor26> old cached page?
04:24:54 <ynpvisitor26> no UGB cam anymore
04:25:12 <Kevin L> Mammoth cam has also moved.
04:25:19 <ynpvisitor...> All current cams working for me
04:25:43 <ynpvisitor100> Turban?
04:25:45 <Kevin L> Current cam page: http://www.nps.gov/yell/photosmultimedia/webcams.htm
04:26:26 <ynpvisitor100> Yup turban
04:26:38 <ynpvisitor100> 1125ie
04:27:12 <ynpvisitor95> Kevin lancour - I'm just wondering
04:27:48 <ynpvisitor95> ynpvisitor95, change name to Kevin lancou
04:28:12 <ynpvisitor95> Kevin lancour
04:28:26 <ynpvisitor100> Click on your name by the text entry area.
04:28:32 <Betty> you want to change your name?
04:28:33 <Kevin L> Click on your visitor name to chang it.
04:30:17 <ynpvisitor95> it comes up with private message when I click on it
04:30:39 <Dave from B> Left click?
04:30:59 <Dave from B> Ryan, is 2016, the Year of the Rocket?
04:31:09 <ynpvisitor100> No, by where you enter text...
04:31:09 <Betty> bottom, where you enter your messages
04:31:14 <Kevin L> Click on the one to the left of where you enter text.
04:31:18 <ynpvisitor100> Probably , Dave. we have a 25,000ft project
04:34:11 <ynpvisitor3> Is that Bison artifact on the walkway?
04:35:06 <Betty> looks only wet
04:45:00 <Betty> Turban again
04:49:47 <ynpvisitor26> 95 must have been trying to change his name from the list, instead of to the left ot the text box.
04:52:55 <Dave from B> Ryan, when are you hoping to get your first internship in the rocket industry?
05:01:30 <Betty> next Turban?
05:11:54 <Betty> OF
05:12:13 <Kevin L> Nice one too.
05:12:24 <Kevin L> Grand

05:23:18 <Dave from B> sorry, 26
05:23:45 <ynpvisitor26> oh well
05:28:26 <Kevin L> Hope BH feels bad for stiffing us yesterday.
05:30:26 <ynpvisitor26> I can hear its remorse from here
05:31:07 <Kevin L> Maybe a 2 burst BH.
05:31:10 <ynpvisitor26> a friend was in basin for one with a rainbow last week, he posted it on FB, it was fun to HEAR again
05:38:03 <Kevin L> Oh no.
05:38:30 <Kevin L> Jake must have shut off the lights when he left.
05:38:48 <Betty> ?
05:39:25 <Kevin L> Stream died for a minute.
05:43:03 <Kevin L> Wow. A toasty 40 degrees at OF right now. I have been there in August when it is colder than that!

10:40:42 <Jenna> it's definitely not welcome here. This winter will never end! Yes, I hope the eagles have better luck.
10:40:52 <Maureen> the clouds in the basin look like they have dust in them.
10:40:57 <Jenna> they're not supposed to get as much snow up north
10:41:57 <ynpvisitor96> Oblong
