15:09:22 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
15:09:47 <ynpvisitor60> morning
15:10:21 <ynpvisitor16> TALL!
15:36:26 <ynpvisitor60> Let's see. We've had Beehive, Grand, Daisy and Old Faithful. Riverside should be 3 hours away. Castle a couple hours. Looks like it will be quiet for awhile.
15:38:11 <Dave from B> Definitely not a day to sleep in
15:38:44 <ynpvisitor60> :)
15:52:47 <Dave from B> Where is everyone this is almost empty
16:15:41 <Dave from B> Everyone should be at Norris this morning
16:17:28 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
16:18:28 <Betty> Good morning, Dave. Can't leave you alone in the room:-)
16:18:29 <Dave from B> I see Bryan is at OF. We will see lots of Grotto, Rocket, Spa area times this week!:)
16:22:42 <Betty> Glad I saw BH this morning
16:23:52 <Betty> Though I almost missed is as twice this week
16:25:30 <Betty> Are you content with the US girls?
16:32:27 <Dave from B> I think the best 2 world cup teams are playing each other on Friday and its not US-China.
16:32:38 <ynpvisitor60> Lion
16:32:42 <Dave from B> I do like our defense but I don't think we have enough offense to win
16:32:55 <Dave from B> Abby is too old to be much of a force anymore
16:40:15 <lc> morning
16:40:46 <Dave from B> Morning lc
16:41:34 <Dave from B> Are you all packed and ready to go?
16:42:11 <lc> almost, will pack car tomorrow morning
16:42:28 <lc> headed to Nashville in a few minutes.
16:43:30 <lc> bone marrow biopsy this afternoon.
16:43:34 <Dave from B> One more win and Vandy are champions
16:43:47 <lc> not looking forward to that.
16:44:03 <lc> they won last night?
16:44:16 <Dave from B> 5-1
16:44:36 <lc> went to bed kind of early, didn't know.
16:44:38 <Dave from B> That's right....that's the rival
16:45:25 <lc> both teams have been playing good lately.
16:46:00 <lc> Virginia beating Florida impressed me.
16:54:09 <lc> gtg
17:10:06 <Betty> Fingers crossed for Giantess, dentist appointment in half an hour ;-)
17:34:28 <Kevin L> Daisy
17:42:50 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin, kc
17:43:38 <Kevin L> Hi
17:46:52 <Dave from B> Lion ie
17:47:18 <ynpvisitor66> Did everyone get to see the Northern Lights last night?
17:47:42 <Dave from B> I didn't check link yet
17:49:29 <ynpvisitor66> They lit up the sky over the basin! It was amazing! They could be seen as far south as Florida
17:49:31 <Dave from B> LC ie
17:49:54 <Dave from B> We're you at OF, 66? or just from streaming you could see?
17:50:47 <ynpvisitor66> Just from Streaming. I am in ND and was watching them on my porch and on my laptop lol
17:52:32 <ynpvisitor66> The whole horizon over the basin was glowing though, it was quite the show!
18:03:00 <Eric> Morning kc, Kevin, Dave, 66
18:03:32 <Eric> The light show sounds cool
18:04:10 <Kevin L> Morning Eric.
18:05:15 <Eric> Glad we have a lion series going...not much else to see.
18:06:20 <Kevin L> I have my king sized NoDoz.
18:07:17 <Eric> Probably good. I have work. (For Kevin: work is the thing you do before retirement :-)
18:07:30 <Kevin L> Maybe we will get one of those elusive Aurums.
18:07:33 <Eric> Just in case you forgot :-P
18:07:50 <Kevin L> I can still remember it.
18:07:52 <Eric> Aurum would be great
18:07:59 <Eric> Oblong
18:08:10 <Kevin L> I wonder what a Beach Spring major is.
18:08:14 <Dave from B> A study done in Britain....
18:08:38 <Dave from B> 1 in 4 british kids think haddock is a soccer player
18:08:56 <Eric> haha
18:09:03 <Dave from B> Our 25% of kids have a sense of humor
18:09:46 <Dave from B> Our = Or
18:10:27 <Eric> haha
18:10:59 <Eric> Kevin, I find ZERO pictures of Beach Spring ie, I too wonder what a major is?
18:11:26 <Dave from B> Beach does some pretty vigourous that a major?
18:11:57 <Kevin L> Not reallly sure
18:12:17 <Kevin L> At least someone is watching Aurum.
18:15:00 <Eric> TSB says it erupted to 10ft in the 30s...
18:15:35 <Eric> So I assume a major would be something similar
18:15:57 <ynpvisitor95> That sounds major
18:16:56 <Eric> I wish there was a comment a long with that report :-(
18:17:38 <Eric> Afternoon Betty
18:18:29 <Eric> I would assume though we would have seen a 10ft eruption on the cam
18:19:31 <Eric> kc, can you check cam footage for a 10am eruption of beach spring?
18:29:01 <Eric> would be a weird coincidence to have improbable and beach spring erupt within a few days of one another
18:31:21 <Eric> OF ie
18:33:00 <Dave from B> fun to see changes on the hill....ish something really big on the other end of the hill would take a hint.:)
18:35:24 <kc (working)> no more captures from me, sorry. another beach spring major was reported at 1016. not sure much can be seen from the wc
18:35:39 <Eric> Well, if improbable can go, I don't see why Giantess couldn't squirt out a show for us :-)
18:35:54 <Dave from B> ish = wish
18:36:39 <Dave from B> udo knows the hill and is on FB...We may see pics
18:36:39 <Jenna> ..
18:36:39 <Eric> no problem kc...was just wondering. I will keep my eye that direction.
18:37:52 <Kevin L> Anyone else having issues with GT? I am still trying to get OF entered.
18:39:33 <Betty> I can see your entry in gt
18:40:00 <Kevin L> It is just sitting there "bubbling" on my computer.
18:40:47 <Betty> 10:28 wc long, entrant Kevin L at 1035
18:41:25 <Kevin L> Finally shows entered on mine.
18:41:29 <Betty> sometimes it is "chewing" too much :-)
18:43:07 <Betty> so where is Giantess? she had her chance during my dentist appt
18:43:51 <Eric> Is that beach spring to the left of OF?
18:43:59 <Eric> I mean right :-|
18:44:29 <Kevin L> Maybe it takes a root canal.
18:44:32 <Betty> left/right issue is a girls thing, Eric ;-)
18:45:12 <Eric> Guess I am a girl :-)
18:45:21 <Betty> HAHA
18:46:15 <Eric> So I am assuming that Beach Spring shows on the cam just at the base of the Giantess slope.
18:46:27 <Eric> Does that sound correct to anyone?
18:47:07 <Kevin L> It is just across the bw from Aurum.
18:47:25 <Betty> maybe you can zoom in a bit, Kevin
18:48:22 <Betty> no, Lion first
18:50:08 <Eric> Ya, I know where it is in relation to the boardwalk :-) But that is sometimes difficult to pinpoint via the webcam.
18:50:27 <Eric> Here comes lion
18:50:38 <Eric> Maybe :-P
18:52:01 <Dave from B> Beach should almost be directly behind OF
18:53:00 <Kevin L> I would think Beach would be behind Giantess.
18:53:12 <Eric> I think it is in between :-P
18:53:34 <Eric> aurum is behind giantess, and beach is left of aurum from the cam perspective
18:53:56 <Eric> I believe beach is directly behind anemone
18:54:22 <kc (working)> that sounds about right
18:54:32 <Dave from B> You're right
18:56:54 <Eric> Since we are still due an's easy to keep an eye there.
18:59:09 <Eric> hey Kevin, it is supposed to be 104 here in the Portland area this weekend...are you guys going to get some extreme heat too?
19:04:16 <Kevin L> We have some for a while. Was 112 over the weekend but cooled down to 107 yesterday. Supposed to be in the low 110s this weekend.
19:17:11 <ynpvisitor58> 104 in portland! Terrible weather to put a bullet proof vest on. Seems you need one when it gets hot.
19:17:46 <Dave from B> 80 is hot in Portland
19:18:20 <Eric> Yep...I have never in my entire life heard of 100+ day in Portland in June
19:18:57 <Eric> August it happens once or twice...but NEVER in June
19:19:09 <ynpvisitor34> Al lthe black top they have put down
19:19:53 <Eric> The world is a changing...and it's not the super volcano we have to worry about :-(
19:20:27 <ynpvisitor34> Mt Hood
19:20:28 <Kevin L> They say this hot air dome we have been "enjoying" will be spreading. We can handle it, but not so sure about some of the others it is headed toward.
19:21:00 <Eric> I was born and raised on Mt Hood :-)
19:21:49 <Dave from B> A beautiful area you live in Eric
19:22:13 <Eric> Well, the hot weather is great for a desert...not so much for Douglas Firs or other evergreens that like tons of water.
19:22:27 <ynpvisitor66> We have been un-seasonably cool here in ND. Minn, Montana & South Dakota have all been under heat waves, but we are staying cool in the middle and they say we will stay cooler than average all summer thank god
19:24:10 <Eric> Thanks Dave, I like it :-) But having criss crossed this country many times, there is beauty and amazing things everywhere.
19:24:35 <Eric> Custer State Park is my second favorite park in the country.
19:24:46 <Dave from B> I miss the Gorge...haven't been there in over 15 years
19:25:16 <Betty> I will check out this summer :-)
19:25:52 <Dave from B> Cannon Beach, Depoe Bay....need to get there soon
19:25:54 <Eric> Definitely do that Betty! The Columbia River Gorge is full of waterfalls and incredible hikes
19:26:27 <Eric> about 20 minutes from my house...
19:26:32 <Betty> where´s Columbia River Gorge?
19:26:46 <Betty> so near Portland
19:26:47 <Eric> about 1/2 hour east of Portland, Oregon
19:26:56 <Betty> k
19:27:27 <Eric>
19:27:59 <Betty> wow, looks realöly amazing!
19:28:11 <Betty> really :-p
19:28:13 <Dave from B> Eric, have you ever heard of McIver Park?
19:28:25 <Eric> yep
19:28:29 <Betty> I know McGyver...
19:28:36 <Eric> haha
19:28:56 <Dave from B> My aunt and unlces property bumped up against it for over 25 years. With a great view of Mt Hood
19:30:56 <Dave from B> There is nothing quite like picking fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries right off the vine:)
19:31:30 <Eric> parents own a blueberry farm at the base of Mt. Hood
19:31:40 <Dave from B> haha
19:32:06 <Eric> Was out there this weekend for fathers day, eating blueberries, blackberries, orange raspberries, .......
19:32:06 <Dave from B> Ledge 0838ie per GT
19:32:43 <Dave from B> Lot the GT name: Norris Rat :D
19:32:44 <Eric> I grew up picking and harvesting berries every summer :-)
19:32:55 <Eric> I saw that too Dave...hillarious name
19:32:57 <Kevin L> That should bring a few more people back to the basin.
19:33:04 <Dave from B> So, it probably wasn't fun for you
19:33:33 <Dave from B> I think I will change mine to the Geyser Hill Geek
19:33:42 <Eric> No...not fun working on a raspberry picking machine from 3am until we were done with the fields.
19:35:58 <Eric> I think Kevin should change his nickname to Rock Crusher
19:36:04 <Eric> :-P
19:37:38 <Betty> LC
19:42:07 <Eric> what is the pool between anemone and improbable called?
19:42:36 <Eric> Swear I just saw a very large boil/eruption there.
19:43:07 <Betty> there´s a pool?
19:43:17 <Betty> cannot remember
19:45:08 <Eric> hmmm, maybe not
19:45:17 <Eric> don't see one on google street view
19:45:45 <Dave from B> Perhaps it was Improbable?
19:45:46 <Betty> I just get through my pics
19:46:03 <Betty> more likely I think
19:46:42 <Eric> Ya, I thought improbable was slightly left of what I was looking at. There are a large number of holes in that area.
19:46:47 <ynpvisitor60> There is no pool between Anemone and Improbable
19:47:01 <Eric> Ya...I confirmed that...thanks 60 :-)
19:47:08 <Betty> thanks
19:56:22 <Dave from B> Eric, I laughed everytime I drive thru Boring, OR
19:57:29 <Eric> Boring was my home address :-)
19:57:59 <Eric> My dad was a volunteer firefighter for the Boring fire department
19:58:30 <Dave from B> Thought it might be..haha
19:59:59 <Eric> It's sister city is Dull Ireland
20:00:33 <Dave from B> haha
20:01:57 <Betty> sawmill ie I think
20:03:50 <Dave from B> Standing room only crowd today
20:04:15 <Kevin L> Even an overflow at Plume.
20:05:08 <Eric> OF
20:05:35 <Betty> bet Daisy will join in
20:09:15 <Eric> I bet it won't :-)
20:09:26 <Betty> :-(
20:09:48 <Betty> I´m a bad predictor
20:10:01 <Eric> But you are the Best spotter!
20:10:31 <Betty> nice of you to say that :-) makes me feel better
20:11:15 <Dave from B> DAISY
20:11:26 <Betty> hä??
20:11:35 <Betty> I´m in a lag
20:11:50 <Kevin L> Dave is in a fog
20:11:57 <Betty> haha
20:11:58 <Dave from B> oops:)...saw light patch in background thought it was Daisy
20:12:16 <Betty> that´s Pyramid!
20:12:21 <Kevin L> Fish fumes again.
20:12:28 <Dave from B> I'm under a lot of pressure to spot something before Betty:)
20:12:38 <Betty> LOL
20:13:01 <Eric> Good luck with that Dave
20:13:05 <Kevin L> My public is really choppy
20:13:49 <Betty> not choppy, but no clear view with all the movement on the bottom
20:14:04 <Eric> Ya, the people suck up the bandwidth!
20:14:11 <Eric> especially when moving
20:14:29 <Dave from B> Eric, in 2 weeks I'll be in a better vantage point than Betty. That should help!
20:14:50 <Eric> Yes it will
20:14:57 <Betty> BAH! That makres me envious
20:15:25 <Eric> I was going to say jealous...but envious works too :-)
20:15:30 <Betty> what will you wear so I can spot you?
20:15:50 <Dave from B> A floppy hat
20:16:00 <Kevin L> And a fish suit
20:16:12 <Betty> Ha-Ha-Ha
20:16:30 <Dave from B> floppy hat not floppy fish
20:17:33 <Eric> Daisy...btw :-)
20:17:35 <Betty> maybe you can shake a water bottle and simulate a geyser eruption. I will spot that wherever you are
20:17:35 <Kevin L> THAT is Daisy
20:18:14 <Betty> I did not spot that, btw :-p
20:20:36 <Eric> sawmill ie
20:20:56 <Betty> was ie at 1201, Eric
20:21:24 <Eric> I was confirming your ie :-P
20:21:44 <Betty> thank you very much :-)
20:22:09 <Betty> (hope noone can hear us-lol)
20:22:37 <Kevin L> I can't hear you.
20:27:11 <Dave from B> Eric, I'm anticiapting being your direction next summer...Becca thinks she wants to be in the Pac NW for college
20:28:31 <Eric> Nice

20:32:00 <Eric> Good timing
20:32:15 <Kevin L> That was nice.
20:32:23 <Betty> yup
20:33:06 <Betty> look, Eric, how nice we rotated :-)
20:35:35 <Eric> Ya, even the same number of times!
20:35:59 <Eric> Other than I added on one to the end so I could be last :-P
20:36:08 <Eric> than == though
20:36:21 <Eric> never mind
20:36:25 <Eric> uggg
20:37:07 <Eric> I have 4 conversations going at once for work...makes typing here challenging.
20:37:29 <Betty> I granted this to you
20:46:28 <Betty> LC
20:52:02 <Dave from B> Will do, Eric...not sure if we will be in OR or WA or both
20:57:15 <Dave from B> Yippee...Kitt and Grissos got Ledge this morning
20:57:59 <Betty> great news
20:58:30 <Eric> Nice
20:58:31 <Dave from B>'s been awhile...put the following in order...
20:58:40 <Dave from B> for next eruption
20:58:44 <Eric> Glad so many people are getting to see it
20:59:29 <Dave from B> Castle, Grand, Daisy, Fountain, Lion...this could be fun
21:00:41 <Eric> Dave's tried and true warmup techniques for the basin :-)
21:00:50 <Dave from B> yep
21:01:11 <Eric> Now you can cheat and just look at jakes nice predictions page :-P
21:01:49 <Eric> except for fountain
21:01:51 <Eric> and lion
21:01:56 <Dave from B> I never do that...have to be my own...I'm crunching numbers as we speak
21:06:07 <Betty> Kevin, are you still awake or do you lie head-over in NoDoz
21:06:23 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
21:06:30 <Dave from B> My guess: Grand (1340-1440), Daisy 1455-1505, Fountain 1510-1550, Lion 1600-1630, Castle 1610-1710
21:06:57 <Betty> :-)
21:07:18 <Dave from B> So, how many correct is a good score?
21:08:16 <Eric> I think you will get 2 correct
21:08:33 <Kevin L> 8 is a good score Dave..
21:08:41 <Dave from B> haha
21:08:54 <Eric> Nice Kevin :-)
21:09:24 <Eric> I would say 3 out of 5 would be a good start
21:09:59 <Eric> 1 - poor, 2 - ok, 3 - good, 4 - great, 5- Geyser Master :-)
21:11:55 <Betty> and 0? Geyser Desaster Master
21:13:07 <Kevin L> We re getting Turban times now. Last was 1301
21:13:24 <Dave from B> Just noticed that
21:15:25 <Dave from B> Should have thrown a couple OF's in there for even more fun
21:16:49 <Betty> you forgot the 12h Beehive
21:17:21 <Betty> Improbable ie I think
21:17:36 <Dave from B> BH ints may not be 12hr but they have been getting shorter the past week
21:18:24 <Betty> no, that´s OF cone
21:20:20 <Betty> Grand
21:20:21 <Dave from B> oops
21:20:31 <Betty> LC
21:20:34 <Dave from B> I was thinking early but not that early
21:21:01 <Dave from B> could be Oblong:)
21:21:21 <Betty> spiky Oblong...
21:21:29 <Dave from B> :P
21:21:31 <Dave from B> :)
21:21:40 <Dave from B> nice spikes...woohoo
21:22:36 <Betty> run, boys, run
21:22:39 <Dave from B> That is 1, possibly 2 short Grand ints may be back to shorter intervals
21:23:40 <Dave from B> Nice wind direction to see spikes
21:25:06 <Eric> 0 for 5 Dave :-(
21:25:12 <Betty> anyone saw the note in OF-row in GT? Jets flew over OF area
21:26:31 <Eric> If I could get GT to load!
21:28:49 <Dave from B> 0-5? We just started...I'm scoring 1 point for the correct order and 1 point for a correct out of 2 thus far:)
21:29:18 <Dave from B> I wondered who was buzzing who
21:29:52 <Eric> Getting loaded for 2b
21:30:10 <Eric> Nice 2b
21:30:10 <ynpvisitor79> :)
21:30:30 <Kevin L> :)
21:30:51 <ynpvisitor79> :)
21:30:59 <ynpvisitor11> nice 2nd
21:31:02 <Eric> ohh, maybe a 3b
21:32:10 <Eric> Come on...blast off!
21:32:35 <Dave from B> doesn't look like it
21:33:19 <Eric> dang, I thought for sure we were going to get that 3rd blast
21:33:19 <Kevin L> Nice of OF to hold off.
21:34:17 <Dave from B> ..
21:35:29 <Betty> FF crash at a bad moment
21:35:31 <Dave from B> Thanks for returning Betty
21:38:02 <Betty> 2 b on Grand?
21:43:50 <Betty> OF ie
21:44:27 <Betty> still having issues
21:49:16 <Kevin L> Castle about the only thing we have left.
21:51:52 <Kevin L> Haven't seen any doggies for a while. Wonder if they all left now.
21:52:46 <Eric> yes Betty, 2b on Grand
21:53:07 <Betty> thanks, Eric
21:53:43 <Dave from B> Daisy is next
21:53:45 <Betty> no Grand entry from basin
21:54:02 <Eric> I assume there will be as we had Turban times
21:54:14 <Betty> LC
21:56:15 <Dave from B> Oblong should be soon
21:59:47 <Dave from B> Here Daisy
22:01:42 <Betty> ere or here?
22:02:11 <Dave from B> hehe
22:02:29 <Betty> bah, you confusing me!
22:04:50 <Betty> you are responsible for my bad grade in my next Enlish test...
22:05:25 <Dave from B> :D
22:05:26 <Betty> see! meant English :-p
22:06:18 <Dave from B> Looks like another of my predictions is back in a bit....going to the penalty box.
22:07:23 <Kevin L> Just don't spell like Dave Betty.
22:08:13 <Kevin L> Penalty box = WC?
22:08:26 <Betty> haha
22:09:04 <Kevin L> I read a bunch about Natron yesterday Betty. Very interesting.
22:10:04 <Betty> yep. not the same as baking soda
22:10:26 <Kevin L> For sure.
22:10:28 <Betty> any idea where you get it?
22:11:31 <Kevin L> It looks like it is not really easy to get here, but some special stores may carry it.
22:12:27 <Betty> I bet the pretzels will be so good, that you can buy a ton of it :-)
22:12:29 <Kevin L> It looks like you can make a substitution for it form American to German, but going the other way is more difficult.
22:13:33 <Kevin L> There is one place listed on Amazon but it is currently unavailable.
22:15:19 <Kevin L> Of the items on Amazon in Grocery and Gormet Food, it is listed as the 625,405th most popular.
22:16:29 <Betty> I think you should just try your baking soda, only double the amount
22:18:10 <Kevin L> They say that works somewhat but is not quite the same. I may try it to see how it goes and keep an eye out for it. They say a little goes a long way.
22:18:18 <Betty> I found another substitution: Nahcolith
22:19:22 <Betty> maybe you can try this. They call it american Natron
22:19:55 <Kevin L> I will look at that. Salt for them is easy. Morton has a coarse Kosher salt that I have used for years. I first used it for fish tanks but found it great for cooking too.
22:22:52 <Kevin L> The odd thing is the mineral for it is mined here in Nevada!
22:24:28 <Betty> yes, I found something similar. really strange you can´t get it there.
22:25:50 <Kevin L> I guess it gives more of a crunch and the Americans like the softer things better.
22:29:13 <Andre from Germ> Hello everybody
22:29:22 <Kevin L> Hi
22:29:24 <Betty> you can even cast out ants with Natron :-)
22:29:37 <Betty> Hello Andre
22:31:39 <Eric> pretzel talk and I missed it!
22:32:02 <Eric> I always wanted to start a large pretzel wagon here in Portland
22:32:10 <Kevin L> I could really use some of that around here.
22:32:13 <Eric> like double handed size pretzels
22:32:31 <Eric> I even own :-)
22:32:47 <Betty> Eric, I sent Kevin a recipe for pretzels
22:33:07 <Kevin L> I love the double hand size.
22:33:32 <Eric> Yep, true oktoberfest size
22:34:55 <Kevin L> I love them while they are still warm.
22:35:23 <ynpvisitor52> Arn't they all warm where you are?
22:35:58 <Kevin L> EVERYTHING is warm where I am!
22:36:22 <Kevin L> Let's say fresh out of the oven!
22:38:49 <Eric> haha
22:40:44 <Betty> got it, Eric?
22:42:04 <Eric> Yep, thank you
22:43:55 <ynpvisitor52> Daisy
22:46:02 <Dave from B> ..
22:52:16 <Eric> ouch....still 0 for 5 :-(
22:52:36 <Eric> Bigger windows Dave :-D
22:58:08 <Betty> I´m headed out. Have a great evening all. Night
22:58:25 <Kevin L> Night
22:59:00 <Andre from Germ> night betty
23:34:08 <Dave from B> Team Yellow has arrived!:)
23:35:02 <Kevin L> Is that why you had to leave for a while?
23:36:46 <Eric> is that a pedal tricycle out there?
23:37:19 <Eric> hmm, guess it's electric
23:37:40 <Dave from B> Time for Lion and Castle soon
23:37:50 <Kevin L> I could use one of those out there!
23:37:50 <Eric> ha
23:38:50 <Eric> I bet we get castle before Lion :-)
23:40:00 <Andre from Germ> so peoples I go to bed I must sleeping bye
23:40:16 <Eric> night andre
23:40:19 <Kevin L> Night Andre.
23:40:22 <Eric> Oblong
23:41:00 <Dave from B> Eric, that is a real possibility but I'm sticking to my prediction
23:41:11 <Dave from B> I see steam at Lion
23:41:19 <Dave from B> just a wisp
23:41:50 <Eric> haha...wishful steaming
23:41:50 <Kevin L> What smells like 3 day old fish?
23:42:11 <Eric> Dave's third day at yellowstone?
23:42:25 <Eric> :-P
23:42:59 <Dave from B> haha
23:43:15 <Eric> I hope there is a better punchline than mine!
23:43:15 <Kevin L> I think today it is his predictions.
23:43:22 <Eric> ouch
23:44:02 <Dave from B> My order still has a chance to be correct...first 2 windows were too hard to jump thru:)
23:44:26 <Eric> Which in reality...order is the most important when you are in basin
23:44:37 <Kevin L> So there!
23:45:16 <Dave from B> Hope someone gets Ftn time...Maureen is waiting for the sunset Ftn later
23:45:24 <Eric> Better predictions just give you more time at geyser grill :-P
23:46:42 <Kevin L> Time at the Geyser Grill gives others better geysers!
23:48:09 <Dave from B> Practice will hopefully prevent days like last year when you're waiting for your first major geyser of the day and it is almost dinner time
23:49:01 <Kevin L> Dinner time at the basin = canned Vienna sausages and a granola bar.
23:52:08 <Dave from B> That's lunch, Kevin
23:53:40 <Dave from B> And, wanted to let you know that a sent a notice to all the rocks at OF and told them when you would be coming to visit so they can be prepared.:)
23:53:47 <Kevin L> Lunch, dinner, out there there is a difference?
23:54:09 <Kevin L> Better send one to the trees too. My wife is coming.
23:54:15 <Dave from B> :D
23:54:58 <Dave from B> Ditches in heavy downpours is my expertise
23:55:23 <Dave from B> My wife....she likes to back into anything that is parked behind her when she leaves are garage.
23:55:40 <Dave from B> are = our...good grief
23:55:45 <Kevin L> That is my kid.
00:06:11 <ynpvisitor46> Little Cub ie
00:09:51 <Eric> must be very cold at the park today
00:10:03 <Eric> My video stream keeps freezing!
00:13:35 <ynpvisitor46> haha good one Eric!
00:14:25 <Eric> Thank you for the polite laugh :-)
00:14:58 <ynpvisitor46> :)
00:31:57 <Eric> I am surprised we have no castle yet
00:32:43 <Kevin L> It does seem like a long interval.
00:32:47 <Eric> Oh castle you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey castle!
00:33:07 <Eric> Lion
00:33:08 <Eric> .
00:33:09 <Eric> ..
00:33:19 <Eric> ini
00:34:02 <Eric> I think this might be Dave's first in window eruption!
00:34:06 <Kevin L> What was Dave's prediction?
00:34:18 <Eric> I don't remember :-(
00:35:00 <Kevin L> Missed it by that much! 1600-1630.
00:35:18 <Eric> ohhh, bummer...strike 3
00:35:43 <Eric> I think Fountain was supposed to come before lion too
00:35:51 <Eric> which it might have...but we won't know for a while
00:36:04 <Kevin L> Too bad he isn't playing horseshoes.
00:36:11 <Eric> haha
00:36:18 <Eric> or hand granades :-P
00:38:23 <Eric> LC
00:38:32 <Eric> King Dwarf
00:43:10 <Dave from B> Hey, now...Fountain could have still gone before Lion....haven't recieve communication from outlying areas yet!:)
00:43:41 <Dave from B> That was a close one by Lion...half credit?:)
00:44:03 <Dave from B> Going home. Have a great evening everyone! More free predictions tomorrow!:)
00:44:12 <Eric> Night Dave
00:44:20 <Eric> OF ie
00:44:35 <Kevin L> For what they are worth Dave!
00:44:39 <Kevin L> Night.
00:44:51 <Dave from B> Sorry, no money back guarantees
00:46:55 <Kevin L> Sounds fishy to me.
00:48:09 <Eric> Can we see down basin?
00:48:15 <Eric> Castle could be ie
00:48:54 <Eric> Unlike Dave, I offer a money back gaurantee
01:06:19 <Graham> hello, yeah another Ledge
01:09:19 <Eric> Castle?
01:10:02 <Eric> hmmm, guess not
01:11:19 <Eric> So dave did get the order correct on eruptions.
01:11:28 <Eric> Fountain went before Lion.
01:12:36 <Eric> Evening Graham
01:16:39 <Graham> hi Eric
01:20:06 <Kevin L> Dave is 1 for 5 then.
01:22:09 <Eric> But I think he got the order correct
01:22:45 <Eric> Which if you are in basin, I think is more important than hitting windows.
01:25:29 <Graham> Daisy
01:26:25 <Graham> nice and tall
01:29:29 <Graham> just went from no rain to a wall of rain outside
01:29:45 <Kevin L> I am only lurking so if you see something good feel free to grab the cam since I may no be watching.
01:30:11 <kc (working)> i prefer a box of rain myself
01:30:51 <Kevin L> We get the powdered type out here.
01:36:20 <Michael> powdered rain? (just add water?)
01:44:45 <Kevin L> Yep.
01:48:01 <Eric> Has anyone here ever seen Beach Spring erupt?
01:48:47 <Graham> yes
01:48:51 <Graham> its frequent
01:49:14 <Eric> hmm, there are ZERO pictures of it on the internet
01:49:21 <Eric> at least that I could find.
01:49:37 <Eric> Castle
01:49:43 <Eric> finally
01:49:50 <Eric> Nice big one
01:49:58 <Michael> Yes, though one has to stretch the notion of "erupt" a bit.
01:50:32 <Eric> I am assuming that udo calling it a major would mean 10ft or so
01:50:53 <ynpvisitor60> maybe cm
01:50:59 <ynpvisitor60> 10 cm that is
01:51:04 <Graham> no, probably a bigger than usual boil
01:51:08 <Graham> like a mini crested pool
01:51:10 <Eric> ohhh
01:51:20 <Michael> Maybe it produced a trickle of overflow.
01:51:53 <Michael> That was my usual yardstick for a big full-pool "eruption"
01:52:13 <Eric> got it
01:52:47 <Eric> Wish there was some place on GT for this kind of info/documentation on a geyser
01:53:18 <Michael> Uh-oh. Castle is getting fitful.
01:53:32 <Eric> Lion
01:53:33 <Eric> ie
01:53:41 <Eric> LC
01:53:54 <Graham> looked happy just before we went to Castle
01:54:18 <ynpvisitor76> I think Castle is erupting too
01:54:28 <Eric> ini was 1633
01:54:52 <Eric> woops, I guess it missed GT. I will enter it
01:56:01 <ynpvisitor76> why is Castle a minor?
01:56:33 <ynpvisitor76> I thought it was still erupting, yet guess not
01:57:12 <Graham> nope, it quit and is probably splashy
01:57:46 <Michael> I think Castle made the transition from erupting to sloppy right when we turned to look at Lion.
01:58:20 <Eric> sprinkler
01:58:34 <Michael> Too bad. That probably puts the major at a random hour overnight.
01:59:03 <Graham> yeah Cast;e had quit when we went to Lion
01:59:30 <Eric> Also castle alternates pretty regularly, major/minor...right?
02:00:04 <Michael> On a good year, Castle is major, major, major, major....
02:00:06 <Eric> ha, looking at GT says NO...I am crazy :-)
02:00:14 <Graham> it recently went about 2 weeks with no minors
02:01:01 <Eric> oh I remember, It rarely has two minors in a row?
02:01:24 <Eric> or is that more day dreaming on my part?
02:01:48 <kcmule> no i mentioned that
02:02:18 <kcmule> not as rare as two OF shorts in a row, but it was the first time id noticed back-to-back castle minors
02:02:31 <Eric> ahh, thanks kc
02:03:44 <kcmule> yw. i prefer the no minors, but anything different is neat
02:04:14 <Eric> wt?
02:12:14 <Michael> Be back in a half-hour or so.
02:20:51 <Graham> Sawmill
02:38:51 <Graham> of
03:15:08 <ynpvisitor100> OK here for an evening bh.
03:16:26 <ynpvisitor34> Well you might get Grand
03:19:48 <ynpvisitor100> Nope, holding out for BH or Bust.
03:21:59 <ynpvisitor34> Best of luck, maybe northern lights if you really hang in
03:22:31 <Michael> I'm taking a "Beehive would be nice" attitude tonight. Not confident enough that today is its short-interval day.
03:23:48 <ynpvisitor100> Well it is in a 14 hour window, plus it was indyless this morning, so anything is possible.
03:24:27 <ynpvisitor100> SOmething poffing by Daisy
03:25:26 <ynpvisitor100> SO how many of you by prints or paintings from the guy in the Inn?
03:26:56 <Michael> Haven't been to the park much recently, so not me. Over the years I've assembled a modest Firehole Pottery collection, though.
03:29:10 <ynpvisitor100> Seen it, just have not taken any home. Not much of a dust it type person. Plus not realy into pottery.
03:35:34 <ynpvisitor12> Is AnemoneGuy here?
03:37:52 <ynpvisitor100> I guess they did not get the $ for dancing bears this year.
03:39:31 <ynpvisitor100> Nice oblong I am guessing
03:43:27 <ynpvisitor100> lc maybe
03:48:16 <Michael> Just noticed we're in the Grand window. No Turbans listed on GT yet to help us out.
03:49:57 <ynpvisitor100> Good spikes out of swamil
03:52:32 <Michael> I wonder if some Sawmill eruptions are bigger than others.
03:52:50 <Michael> No real reason there should be, but also no real reason why not.
03:56:12 <Michael> Sawmill off fairly recently.
03:58:46 <Michael> Daisy ie.
03:58:51 <kcmule> it gets pretty animated on this capture
04:01:08 <ynpvisitor60> nice. When was that?
04:01:52 <ynpvisitor60> I see -- July 10, 2011
04:01:53 <kcmule> 20:15 july 10 2011
04:02:19 <kcmule> some read the date wrong, i format it usa style :)
04:14:02 <Michael> I completely missed Old Faithful, didn't I?
04:15:03 <ynpvisitor60> 2006
04:18:02 <Michael> Thanks. Picked the wrong time to fix a snack.
04:21:14 <Kevin L> Just wait 90m.
04:22:37 <Michael> What time does it get dark there?
04:28:04 <kcmule> i got daisy 22:17 two days ago
04:28:27 <kcmule> we've also been fortunate to have flashlights on grand
04:30:10 <Michael> So Grand should be lit up this evening one way or the other...
04:47:21 <Michael> Maybe next Turban.
05:04:15 <kcmule> trying to wait to OF window
05:04:28 <Michael> Maybe next Turban.
05:19:10 <kcmule> yep
05:19:12 <Eric> Grand
05:19:12 <kcmule> .
05:19:13 <kcmule> .
05:19:26 <Eric> EOE
05:19:31 <Eric> WOW
05:20:05 <Michael> Maybe next Turban...oh, wait...
05:20:17 <Eric> Nice initial column
05:26:01 <kcmule> sawmill
05:26:20 <Eric> hard to tell with all of this steam if it will calm to a 2b
05:27:33 <Eric> looking good
05:28:15 <Eric> Nice
05:29:05 <Eric> 3b or not 3b
05:29:15 <Michael> Worth the wait for sure.
05:30:04 <Michael> Oh, and That is the Question... (a bit slow there)
05:30:50 <kcmule> everyone thank OF for waiting
05:41:51 <kcmule> OF 21:41
05:43:25 <kcmule> short
06:09:44 <kcmule> castle
06:17:50 <ynpvisitor58> Did I miss BH?
06:18:13 <ynpvisitor58> Or tap dancing Bears?
06:23:12 <Michael> No Beehive yet. Someone is there with a flashlight to help us see BHI when it goes.
06:23:12 <kcmule> no bees or bears
06:25:04 <ynpvisitor58> Well good i guess. Was hoping for a 14 hour bh today. Wish the park person would do more to monitor geysers and not worry about the end.
06:25:51 <ynpvisitor58> People have been predicting the end for many years. Not happend yet, unless I am in a dream!
06:29:19 <kcmule> daisy ie
06:29:46 <ynpvisitor58> Sure is.
06:29:54 <ynpvisitor58> No lights on it
06:30:22 <Michael> I'm impressed you can see that far.
06:30:56 <ynpvisitor58> Need to have a lap top and move the screen around. i did not see it either.
06:33:33 <ynpvisitor58> Can you see the person setting at of playing on their cell phone?
06:34:33 <kcmule> checking geysertimes im sure
06:35:09 <ynpvisitor58> More likely geyser crush saga
06:36:06 <Michael> Still time to wander downbasin and catch Riverside.
06:38:46 <kcmule> if the moon is out it's about half
06:39:18 <Michael> I'm going to call it a night. Best of luck catching bees.
06:39:50 <kcmule> nite
