19:43:17 <Dave from B> Morning stranger
20:54:09 <Andrew> hello
20:54:34 <Dave from B> Hello Andrew
21:26:02 <ynpvisitor2> I can't believe what I'm hearing on the news right now!!! Four Marines shot and killed in Tennesee! My prayers go out to families and deceased. I'm so pissed off right now
21:26:33 <Dave from B> Shot by who?
21:27:04 <ynpvisitor2> They said the shooter has no military background so they are thinking domestic terrorism with links to ISIS
21:28:21 <Dave from B> That's crazy....hope they find the guilty party
21:29:56 <ynpvisitor2> He was shot and killed by police, but no description has been given other than they are investigating the domestic terrorism. I highly doubt it was random, but the government is saying not to jump to conclusions even though all signs point to it
21:31:38 <ynpvisitor5> Lion
21:32:22 <ynpvisitor2> Seeing lion makes me feel a little better!
21:32:34 <Eric> Close up would even be better :-)

00:44:51 <Betty> haHA Dave

00:46:24 <ynpvisitor28> Dep confirmed on GT
00:46:50 <ynpvisitor28> actually sometimes people wear different stuff just to confuse people
00:48:13 <Dave from B> I always seem to miss the party...I think they plan it based on when I'm coming:(
00:48:25 <Eric> haha
00:48:44 <Betty> you not there, Dave?
00:50:05 <Dave from B> When Becca plays soocer on Labor Saturday, we usually don't get in until late Sat and party is sometimes on SAt

01:07:59 <Eric> First one of those I have seen in a while
01:14:37 <Dave from B> Hi, Michael
01:14:46 <kc (working)> mornin ralph
01:14:56 <kc (working)> sorry if u missed grand
01:15:11 <kc (working)> rift ie
01:15:22 <Michael> Hello sam.
01:15:41 <Michael> Today I must be here for the company, missed most of the geysers.
01:18:08 <Eric> haha
01:18:20 <Michael> Either that, or I'm here to steal four-leggeds (refers to http://tinyurl.com/oxublfs in chat yesterday)
01:19:21 <Eric> Sprinkler again...
01:22:09 <Dave from B> We need to have a veteran gazer come up with a set of multiple choice trivia questions. Here's mine....
01:22:23 <Eric> hey kc, how can you tell rift without zoom?
01:22:54 <kc (working)> gt
01:23:02 <Eric> ohh :-P
01:23:05 <Betty> Will helped him :-)
01:23:15 <Eric> haha, cheater!
01:23:20 <kc (working)> where there's a Will...
01:23:35 <Eric> nice
01:23:35 <kc (working)> the autorefreshing timeline is a great tool
01:23:40 <Betty> ...there´s a way
01:23:41 <Dave from B> The "Water Fountain" is an indicator for which geyser: A) Daisy B)Riverside C) Lion D) Tilt's Baby
01:24:13 <Eric> Rivverside?
01:24:17 <Eric> B
01:24:39 <ynpvisitor5> oooh, geyser trivia!
01:24:45 <Betty> my english is too bad...lol
01:25:01 <ynpvisitor5> I say Riverside also
01:25:14 <Dave from B> If you need to phone a friend, call Udo!
01:25:32 <Michael> C) Lion. Although anyone who's waited for Lion knows it doesn't have an indicator...
01:26:13 <Dave from B> Well, it will do its initial when the foutain is going.....might be a long time, howevere!:)
01:26:37 <Dave from B> Congrats, Michael
01:26:44 <Michael> Sort of like how Cistern Spring is Steamboat's indicator. Got it!
01:27:14 <Dave from B> Hey, when you're wating at Lion for 4 hours, you see everything!:)
01:27:29 <Eric> So it use to have an indicator called water fountain?
01:27:33 <Eric> I am confused
01:27:49 <Eric> sorry...slow gazers ahead :-{
01:27:55 <Betty> need sleep
01:28:10 <Dave from B> It has a bubbler in front that has to be on when Lion initials...it's just that it can bubble for hours!
01:28:25 <Betty> hehe
01:28:51 <Michael> There must have been some summer that the vent really burbled up like a drinking fountain. Then the name stuck.
01:29:04 <Betty> like the bubblers in front of Pink Cone
01:29:07 <Eric> ahhh
01:29:34 <Eric> got it
01:29:42 <Eric> thanks :-)
01:29:54 <Eric> googling did not help one bit! Good trivia
01:30:06 <Dave from B> And, it shuts off after the initial
01:30:22 <Eric> and does not reappear for any subsequent eruptions?
01:30:57 <Michael> I think it refills a couple of hours after the Lion series calls it quits.
01:31:22 <Betty> headed out. night all
01:31:27 <Dave from B> Nite, Betty
01:31:29 <Eric> night betty
01:31:41 <kc (working)> nite Betty
01:32:01 <Michael> night, Betty.
01:34:00 <Michael> Was going to toss out: What does GIP stand for, but that one is Google-able (from Scott Bryan's book).
01:34:53 <kc (working)> geyser in peace
01:34:53 <Dave from B> haha, just showed Becca that one...there's 2 holes there....which was is the GIP?
01:36:17 <Michael> The front one, which you can see into from the baordwalk. Even during most hot periods the water level stays pretty deep in the hole.
01:37:17 <kc (working)> i feel lucky just to have seen a ghp before they went mia
01:38:29 <ynpvisitor28> its nice when the GIP comes up close to overflow
01:40:17 <Dave from B> Top 2 things on my bucket list: F&M eruption and G Hot period that leads to mayhem
01:42:10 <ynpvisitor28> pretty sure any GHP would lead to mayhem this year
01:42:16 <Michael> OK. Which of the following has not (in my experience) been used as the name of a Fan and Mortar vent? A) Wall vent B) Crack vent C) Arch vent D) Amphitheater vent E) Grand Canyon vent
01:42:36 <Dave from B> I like it
01:43:10 <Michael> And I agree, the next GHP will feature mayhem.
01:44:11 <ynpvisitor28> D
01:44:39 <Dave from B> I'm thinking D or E...I'll guess E
01:45:02 <Andrew> crack
01:45:13 <Michael> D is actually the name I learned for East Vent.
01:45:39 <Michael> E replaced it in 1988 when we saw the first "Grand Canyon starts"
01:46:09 <Michael> Crack is (I think) stil the common name for a seep above Frying Pan.
01:46:41 <Dave from B> So, it is A...wow
01:47:07 <Michael> Yup. Only one I haven't heard/used.
01:49:22 <Eric> GHP?
01:49:46 <Michael> GHP = "Giant Hot Period"
01:49:53 <Eric> ahh
01:50:11 <Eric> I just read through the Giant section of TSB...should have know :-)
01:52:06 <kc (working)> rocket ie
01:52:11 <Michael> Funny thing is, except for certain times in 2006-7, the radio call "Water in Mastiff" was more likely to elicit a groan than excitement.
01:52:18 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Thiks was fun. Have a great evening everyone!:)
01:52:29 <Eric> u2 dave
01:52:30 <Eric> night
01:52:33 <Eric> knight
01:52:33 <ynpvisitor5> thanks for the teaching today Dave
01:52:34 <Eric> nite
01:52:36 <kc (working)> nite
01:52:38 <Michael> night, Dave.
01:52:50 <Dave from B> I guess I'm not a rookie anymore
01:52:54 <Eric> LC
01:56:13 <Michael> I'm going to have to stockpile some trivia for next time I see Dave.
02:07:42 <Michael> OF mid-eruption. Guess I wasn't paying attention.
02:22:27 <Michael> Time to put dinner on the table. Maybe that will get Beehive going.
02:43:35 <kcmule> daisy ie
03:31:11 <ynpvisitor27> I cam to see bh, not fissy
03:44:27 <kcmule> OF 19:44
03:49:11 <ynpvisitor27> OK, they can all go back to the lodge now. Time for BH, sea monster, spit cone, or something fun
03:50:49 <ynpvisitor27> Nice sawmill
03:50:56 <Michael> The Loch Ness geyser window doesn't open until the next storm, I think.
03:52:34 <ynpvisitor27> Nessy is not a sea monster
03:54:15 <ynpvisitor75> sea monster time was just posted
03:55:02 <Michael> Thx.
03:56:10 <ynpvisitor27> And I missed it.
04:09:04 <ynpvisitor79> Boy o boy. No respect for the Yellowstone watching kids digging holes and parents not doing a rotten thing about it.
05:01:14 <Michael> Possible Oblong. Or Vent+Turban restart. Can't tell from here.
05:14:31 <kcmule> OF
05:14:32 <Michael> Old Faithful 21:!4
05:25:19 <Michael> Daisy 21:25
05:26:01 <Michael> and Sawmill has returned.
05:29:50 <Michael> Not much left before dark, unless something on Geyser Hill gets antsy.
05:40:00 <kcmule> nice to have a light on bhi
05:41:13 <Michael> I'm hoping that means there's water in it. We'll know soon enough, I guess.
05:57:53 <ynpvisitor60> Is that Winkin, Blinken, or Nod at BH?
05:59:25 <Michael> Quite possibly all three.
06:10:51 <Michael> Lion?
06:11:36 <ynpvisitor60> Not sure, could be lc or just steam. Hoping a light gets on it if it is Lion
06:12:04 <ynpvisitor60> Big light, can not tell
06:13:55 <ynpvisitor60> HAd to be. No gt report yet
06:14:59 <Michael> I'll throw in a report. Folks on the boardwalk can always supersede it.
06:15:06 <ynpvisitor26> earlier light looked like BHI possibly so this could be ....
06:15:43 <ynpvisitor2> looks like a mouse in the sky there lol
06:19:24 <ynpvisitor26> ok -- it was lion
06:19:35 <ynpvisitor60> Mouse is flat now.
06:19:45 <kcmule> bh
06:19:47 <ynpvisitor26> this is BH
06:20:14 <ynpvisitor60> We saw a real nice cartoon dog in the spring. It change fast to just a blob
06:20:24 <Michael> Color me surprised!
06:23:26 <Michael> (Oh I must have been looking away when the lights were on BHI)
06:23:45 <ynpvisitor60> I missed it also
06:24:59 <ynpvisitor60> I am glad they light it up. how well does it show when you are looking at it from the light?
06:26:27 <Michael> With those flashlights you can see a lot of definition in the water column. At least as much as with a full moon.
06:27:41 <ynpvisitor60> Thanks, though I have never seen a moon lite anyting errupt.
06:28:10 <ynpvisitor60> Well, I am done for the night. Enjoy the next light up
06:28:27 <Michael> Good night. I am heading in too.
06:28:36 <kcmule> nite
