16:43:59 <Jenna> hi Dave!
16:49:27 <Jenna> did you see the news about the hiker found on Elephant Back trail?
16:52:49 <Dave from B> Yes, I did. I wonder what happened
16:52:58 <Dave from B> Morning kc

17:31:34 <kcmule> grand
17:31:39 <Jenna> Grand?
17:31:40 <ynpvisitor6> grand
17:31:56 <Jenna> couldn't see spikes with the steam, but definitely do now
17:43:32 <Dave from B> Grrrr
17:44:30 <Dave from B> 2 of last 3 Grand ints have been 730 or longer
17:45:41 <Jenna> it's just getting those out of its system before you get there
17:47:29 <Dave from B> I'm having a hard time envisioning returning to YNP for some reason
17:48:15 <Jenna> hmm
17:48:45 <Dave from B> To focused on work right now; I guess
17:49:17 <Jenna> that will just make you appreciate the break even more
17:49:56 <Dave from B> I have an aunt and uncle visiting next week; school is starting; the fair is here...lots of things before our trip
17:50:24 <Jenna> sounds like it
17:50:33 <Jenna> we just registered Conor for preschool yesterday
17:50:49 <Dave from B> fun
17:50:56 <Jenna> scary haha
17:50:57 <Dave from B> I bet he is excited
17:51:16 <Jenna> he is, mostly about using his new school supplies I think lol
17:52:06 <Dave from B> of course...who wouldn't like glue, tape, etc
17:53:17 <Jenna> and his backpack that might pull him backwards once it's full lol
17:53:56 <Dave from B> Wait until he starts bringing treasures home in the backpack like rocks, etc
17:54:33 <Jenna> the rock part has already started
17:55:18 <Jenna> I just hope he does well his first day, and I hope I can hold it together :)
17:56:13 <Dave from B> He'll be fine...Does he have friends he plays with now?
17:57:40 <Jenna> not really, just the kids at the babysitter. But he seems to make friends quickly, wants to know their name, etc. Just a big milestone!
17:59:12 <Dave from B> Jenna, you will get a little more free time once he gets to full time school as well.
18:00:26 <Jenna> oh don't worry, I am already excited about that! haha

05:13:19 <kcmule> exactly
05:13:51 <kcmule> not sure what Jake carries, i think he's out there
05:15:41 <Michael> I might keep this window open, and wait for the flashlights to provide a visual "ding."
06:48:59 <Michael> I'm not sure anyone is out there now. No new reports of OF or Lion.
