14:17:52 <ynpvisitor59> of
14:35:58 <ynpvisitor56> no bee yet?
14:43:45 <ynpvisitor15> Expect it soon. I have to leave.
14:44:29 <Kitt> won't see it, since the cam doesn't include the hill in its view
14:50:15 <ynpvisitor39> You can see BH in the static view.
14:54:05 <ynpvisitor48> What happened to the cam view?
15:08:57 <ynpvisitor48> Thank you very much for putting BH back in view
15:17:26 <Dave from B> Good Morning everyone
15:26:46 <ynpvisitor48> morning Dave
16:33:01 <Dave from B> Darn Missed Grand 0823
16:33:39 <Dave from B> Shortest interval of last 100....6hr4m
16:35:16 <Dave from B> Daisy 0835ie
16:42:13 <Art H> Was it last year where there were 4 Grands in 24 hours?
16:42:33 <Art H> I remember someone camping out to catch them all
16:43:30 <Dave from B> Graham saw 5 Grands during a Labor Day trip but I think that was in 2012 or 2013
16:45:05 <Art H> I think it was the same year Beehive was "broken" so 2013..
16:47:07 <Art H> We've been doing a week in the part over labor day for the last 4 years, this year doing 2 weeks. Can't wait....
16:49:54 <Dave from B> That's great Art. I would love to spend 2 weeks at a time
16:51:03 <Dave from B> I don't believe we've met
16:51:13 <Art H> We live all the way across the country in New Hampshire so it's a bit of a haul either way
16:51:42 <Dave from B> Wow...4 or 5 days travel?
16:52:18 <Art H> Yeah 4 day drive or 6-7 hour flight (depending on connections)
16:55:19 <Art H> We've been lucky in our gazing so far, caught Morning on a raining September 2nd at 12:48 in 2013
16:56:29 <Dave from B> I was also there! Not too often I'm willing to sztand in the rain for a geyser but that was awesome!
16:57:19 <Art H> Last year we caught a rainy, and our first, Fan & Mortar on August 30th 13:29
16:58:06 <Art H> Hail storm that day too
16:59:14 <Dave from B> I think I missed that...Left for home right after Morning eruption.
16:59:51 <Dave from B> Seeing that Morning solo and Giant are my gazing favs
17:02:45 <Art H> Hoping to spend some time up at Norris to try and catch Ledge, would be ironic if it was raining when we did...
17:04:15 <Dave from B> I struck out on my last trip...hope the timing is right this time
17:08:43 <Dave from B> Art, how long have you been gazing?
17:09:36 <Art H> First trip was in 2010, thought it was gonna be a one time trip
17:10:04 <Dave from B> It is amazing how many of us get "hooked"
17:12:48 <Art H> Been back every year since
17:13:19 <Art H> Every year we get the same question from people we know
17:13:44 <Art H> "Haven't you already been there, like 4 times now?"
17:14:23 <Art H> or "What are you going to do for two weeks that you haven't already done"
17:37:59 <Dave from B> Art, those questions do get frustrating. My answer is to talk about seeing the same people year after year instead of the geysers. It seems that is more understandable for people.
17:53:10 <Eric(31)> Morning
17:54:22 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
17:54:41 <Eric(31)> Grotto Steam
17:55:03 <Dave from B> That's a dark cloud

18:40:39 <ynpvisitor85> Wow, no one called Lion

19:07:52 <Dave from B> Kitt, you just got home!:)
19:08:04 <Kitt> I've been watering my yard and just got stung
19:08:19 <ynpvisitor48> Ouch! Hope you have something to help
19:09:23 <Kitt> I spent my entire summer outside and got a total of 4 bug bites and I come home and in 48 hours I get a mosquito bite in my house and either a wasp or hornet sting
19:09:54 <ynpvisitor22> summer is not over
19:10:37 <Kitt> exactly, I seem to be safer in the park
19:11:09 <ynpvisitor22> a bit more expensive than being home though
19:12:11 <ynpvisitor22> ice the sting, that will help
19:12:35 <Kitt> that is what I was doing when I got the indy text
19:12:42 <ynpvisitor22> hopefully the stinger is not in you still
19:13:33 <Kitt> didn't find one
19:13:53 <Kitt> cli,

19:56:59 <Betty> hello all
19:57:21 <Eric(30)> hello Betty
19:57:38 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
19:58:07 <Betty> hi Eric(30) and Dave from B
20:17:44 <Dave from B> wb, Kevin
20:18:07 <Betty> Hi Kevin L and OF
20:18:15 <Kevin L> I was hoping you would hold BH for me.
20:18:29 <Betty> Missed it as well
20:19:31 <Dave from B> I tried
20:20:56 <Kevin L> I miss a whole lot of stuff today.
21:03:16 <Eric(30)> LC
21:05:16 <Eric(30)> Sawmill
21:12:14 <ynpvisitor53> did noy know NPS allowed building things at OF
21:12:41 <ynpvisitor45> I'm confused
21:15:28 <Eric(30)> I know you cannot leave with items...but not sure there is any rule about re-arranging them :-P
21:27:21 <ynpvisitor99> I see a bunch of future architects there!
22:01:35 <Dave from B> Time for an afternoon off for errands. Have a great evening everyone!
22:02:29 <ynpvisitor100> Bye Dave have a great day
22:02:47 <Dave from B> Bye, lucky 100
22:03:02 <Kevin L> All right! Time for Giantess!
22:03:12 <Kevin L> Bye Dave.
22:03:21 <Betty> bye Dave
22:03:28 <Dave from B> I'll be near my phone!
22:26:51 <Eric(30)> 1414 Turban
22:30:03 <Eric(30)> Daisy was 1351
22:30:57 <ynpvisitor45> and Turban was 1414
22:31:31 <Eric(30)> Oblong?
22:31:41 <Eric(30)> yep
22:31:58 <Betty> looks good for Oblong
22:32:34 <Eric(30)> Turban might be puffy again in there too
22:35:27 <Eric(30)> thar she blows
22:35:29 <Eric(30)> Grand
22:35:32 <Eric(30)> .
22:35:33 <Eric(30)> .
22:35:33 <Eric(30)> .
22:35:48 <Betty> whooo
22:38:19 <Betty> a big fluffball
22:38:50 <Eric(30)> Yep...I cannot see any water.
22:39:44 <Eric(30)> google news recommended this article to me: http://www.torontosun.com/2015/08/04/on-a-glamping-trip-in-yellowstone-national-park
22:40:26 <Eric(30)> Never heard of Glamping before
22:46:09 <ynpvisitor53> headed for another one burst, yet at least a long one
22:56:59 <kc (working)> $150 for a canvas tent and cots, no thanks
23:07:13 <Kevin L> Somehow glamor and canvas don't seem to go together.
23:07:58 <Eric(30)> I can see that kind of camping in the safaris of Africa...but not really in West Yellowstone :-P
23:08:45 <Eric(30)> For $150 I want to have a bathroom and be walking distance to UGB :-D
23:08:50 <ynpvisitor53> they have glamping in West? Where?
23:09:02 <Eric(30)> http://www.torontosun.com/2015/08/04/on-a-glamping-trip-in-yellowstone-national-park
23:09:08 <Eric(30)> I assume that is the location
23:10:51 <ynpvisitor53> that is 7 miles out of town, how bizarre
23:11:16 <Eric(30)> They are located next to the KOA :-P
23:11:36 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
23:11:43 <Eric(30)> Night Betty
23:13:40 <ynpvisitor53> I cannot believe folks would pay that, that is nuts
23:14:23 <Eric(30)> They don't know any better
23:14:44 <Eric(30)> Like right now there are tons of rooms open for labor day weekend at OF area
23:14:54 <Eric(30)> You just have to know.
23:14:56 <Kevin L> I guess that includes your food, but it better be pretty good food for that.
23:15:47 <Eric(30)> Grizzly bear RV park is about as far out as I would ever be
23:16:08 <Eric(30)> Because I will never stay at fishing bridge again with my RV
23:17:23 <Kevin L> My idea of roughing it is a motel without cable TV. Lodge cabins are roughing it.
23:18:19 <Kevin L> I had to sleep in crappy tents and on dirt for 4 years. I have had my fill of that!
23:18:28 <Eric(30)> I like camping....but If I want luxury, I am not going to stay in a tent next to a KOA!
23:19:21 <Eric(30)> Hey Ryan
23:19:29 <Eric(30)> Thanks for all the geyser reports :-D
23:19:47 <Kevin L> For sure!
23:19:51 <Ryan (UGB)> Body howdy. Nothing left for now. Sitting at OF. Gemini later.
23:20:04 <Ryan (UGB)> Howdy* not body
23:20:11 <Eric(30)> Dome?
23:20:16 <Kevin L> How did you do in your rocket competition last June?
23:20:40 <Ryan (UGB)> Planned to waste an afternoon at Grand and got a walk up.
23:20:56 <ynpvisitor53> I wonder where they put all the camping stuff in the winter? That is a lot of sites
23:21:35 <Ryan (UGB)> Good. Recovered. Flew to 6700 aimed for 10000. Motor burned fast due to the heat. It was 115 or higher every day
23:21:43 <kc (working)> dome ie
23:21:51 <ynpvisitor53> wasting an afternoon? that sounds like an odd way to put gazing
23:21:53 <Ryan (UGB)> Yup Dome 1521 ie. Thanks for the heads up. Initial I think.
23:22:17 <Kevin L> Ouch! It was a nasty June this year.
23:22:24 <Ryan (UGB)> Yeah. It's a waste of time. Absolutely terrible. Boring. No wifi! ;)
23:22:53 <Kevin L> I take it your parachute worked.
23:23:07 <Ryan (UGB)> Very well. It's the part I worked on. :D
23:23:22 <Kevin L> Now you can sew your own shirts!
23:23:22 <Ryan (UGB)> When fluffy empties out I'll go wave at y'all.
23:24:00 <Ryan (UGB)> I didn't make it I just checked off the recovery system before flight. I made a good bit of it though.
23:24:08 <Kevin L> We have a big launch planned for Saturday but nothing over about 1250 feet.
23:25:18 <Ryan (UGB)> We are going again next year. This year we are heating the motors up to 120 degrees f to see how they perform when heated. We know they burn quicker. But how much we don't know. If we know then we can plan incase the Temps are high.
23:25:20 <Eric(30)> actually dome 1520 :-)
23:25:58 <Ryan (UGB)> Is that when you saw it? I'd put it as a start Webcam time because I only saw it after you posted it.
23:26:09 <Kevin L> I didn't realize the temps would make that much difference.
23:26:48 <Kevin L> Temp today is 110 but forcast for under 100 on Sat.
23:27:31 <Ryan (UGB)> The APCP ignites at 350deg. At normal use its about 60 to 70 Deg at ignition. On launch day it was 120 or more. That removes a lot of the energy needed to get it going and keep it going. Thus it burns much faster.
23:29:06 <Ryan (UGB)> Anyone have a video capture of yesterday's beehive? Wondering if you guys got me getting stuck in the rain and then giving Mara a bear hug in the rain?
23:29:26 <Ryan (UGB)> I think I lost my sunshine.
23:30:19 <Ryan (UGB)> Holy hell that was TALL!
23:30:23 <Kevin L> You may check with Dave M.
23:30:48 <Kevin L> I was driving but I think he gets them.
23:31:32 <Ryan (UGB)> I'm waiving at ya. In line with the cam and fluffy. Blue pack. Floppy hat
23:31:45 <Kevin L> We were out this morning taking care of 5 pounds of tannerite. A good time was had by all.
23:32:04 <Ryan (UGB)> I can't see the cam so I have no clue if you actually see me
23:32:12 <Kevin L> Yellow shirt?
23:32:31 <Ryan (UGB)> Blue. Blue pack. Just in the gravel. I'll waive again
23:33:43 <Ryan (UGB)> On my phone lol
23:34:25 <ynpvisitor45> Ryan -- I have the capture from yesterday.
23:34:37 <Ryan (UGB)> Awesome. I'd appreciate it
23:34:49 <ynpvisitor45> Ryan -- the cam is pointed at OF
23:35:00 <Kevin L> OK, I see you on the iPad
23:35:05 <Ryan (UGB)> Here I thought I was a wide view :)
23:35:12 <Kevin L> BIG pack.
23:35:20 <Ryan (UGB)> On the boardwalk between of and the cam. HUGE pack
23:35:31 <Ryan (UGB)> ~~~~~
23:36:05 <kc (working)> yeesh that is q big pack for the bw
23:36:05 <Ryan (UGB)> Well not really huge. I'm just tiny. :)
23:36:23 <Ryan (UGB)> Half of it is photo geAR and today half is rain gear.
23:36:35 <ynpvisitor45> Ryan how do you want the BH video sent?
23:37:05 <Kevin L> Good shot of you.
23:37:15 <Ryan (UGB)> Hmmm. What are the options? You mean what file type or what route (email, pm, etc?)
23:37:18 <Ryan (UGB)> :)
23:37:33 <ynpvisitor45> what route?
23:37:33 <Ryan (UGB)> Dome again
23:37:48 <Ryan (UGB)> Hmm email. rrmaurer@mix.wvu.edu
23:38:53 <Ryan (UGB)> Off to the lodge to annoy will while he works. Later everyone! :)
23:38:56 <Ryan (UGB)> ~~~~~
23:39:12 <Kevin L> Bye
23:39:31 <Ryan (UGB)> The big mug by the way was coffee. Not much sleep here lol
23:41:00 <Eric(30)> Dome looks large
23:41:04 <Eric(30)> lots of steam
00:04:08 <ynpvisitor24> hi
00:04:20 <Eric(30)> hi
00:11:43 <Eric(30)> another dome
00:11:51 <Eric(30)> per GT
00:20:44 <ynpvisitor100> daisy
01:25:57 <Eric(30)> Wow...it got ugly out there
01:30:03 <Eric(30)> I guess the good thing is you are not getting dry lightning out of this storm.
01:30:08 <Eric(30)> keeping fire danger down.
01:30:39 <Kevin L> Don't think you will get a fire today.
01:32:08 <Eric(30)> even if you wanted one!
01:32:24 <Eric(30)> there goes the cam
01:33:15 <Eric(30)> yep, camera is unreachable
01:36:18 <Kevin L> You broke it again?
01:46:02 <Eric(30)> I am guessing they lost power...even the static cam went down
01:47:00 <Kevin L> I think you are right.
01:48:42 <Kevin L> Good time to feed chickens.
01:49:04 <kc (working)> streaming back
01:53:13 <kc (working)> OF 17:52
01:56:51 <kc (working)> riverside probably
02:01:17 <kc (working)> 49 min OF interval, thats the shortest in a while
02:18:31 <ynpvisitor45> people lining up early for OF -- oops
02:19:18 <kcmule> yeah wonder when we last had two OF eruptions in the same hour
02:22:43 <ynpvisitor45> last interval under an hour was July 9. Didn't look for two in teh same hour.
02:23:01 <kcmule> dome ie
02:23:59 <kcmule> thx 45, also curious when the last time we had a shorter reported interval if u happen to come across that
02:30:19 <ynpvisitor45> The only one I found that was shorter this year was a 32 minute interval listed on Jan 2.
02:37:17 <kcmule> interesting 45, the previous is an E time but it's not out of place. we didnt discuss it in chat, not sure anyone noticed
02:37:56 <kcmule> excellent moonlight that night, so things were visible
02:38:25 <ynpvisitor45> I just checked the video. That interval is bogus. There was no eruption at 2347.
02:38:50 <kcmule> was just heading there, thx for checking
03:40:02 <kcmule> OF 19:39

04:25:12 <kcmule> daisy 20:24
04:26:07 <kcmule> that is a long 4h 4m interval
04:26:59 <Michael> Really? I wonder why it does that sometimes? Sort of Little Cub's naps...
04:30:11 <kcmule> cant blame the wind today, looks nice and calm
04:30:29 <Michael> Thnk that's an Oblong cloud?
04:31:04 <kcmule> probably. missed the start admiring daisy. looked like grand for a sec
04:58:51 <kcmule> grand

05:04:30 <kcmule> well we had hot water in the air anyway
05:04:46 <Michael> Busy evening.
