13:27:12 <Betty> morning all
13:27:16 <DGInc> moning Betty
13:28:12 <Betty> hi DGInc
13:30:30 <DGInc> Spasmodic or am I seeing things?
13:31:04 <Betty> it´s this direction
13:37:18 <Betty> Aurum?
13:38:03 <DGInc> didn't saw it, was on an another tab of my browser
13:38:04 <Betty> must have been steam from Giantess
13:38:45 <Betty> I could not divide it
13:39:26 <Betty> would love if this is F&M
13:40:17 <DGInc> it looks like it is in the right place according to this:
13:43:24 <DGInc> or it is Riverside
13:44:09 <Betty> more likely, with winddrift
13:45:36 <DGInc> DaveM says that it is Riverside
13:45:49 <DGInc> at 0739
13:46:32 <Dave from B> Hi Betty, DGInc
13:46:38 <DGInc> hi Dave
13:46:50 <Betty> I bet he´s right. He´s much more experienced
13:46:58 <Betty> hi Dave
13:47:04 <DGInc> and I think there goes Castle
13:47:08 <Betty> Castle
13:47:31 <Betty> nice spikes
13:48:22 <DGInc> srsly... no stream for me?!
13:48:40 <Betty> you broke it ;-)
13:48:45 <DGInc> =(
13:48:53 <Betty> mine is fine
13:50:36 <DGInc> of course... why not doing some maintenace on the internet cables... RAAAAAHHHH
13:50:42 <Betty> time to head home. bbl
13:59:42 <DGInc> Finally it works again... stupid maintenace
13:59:56 <DGInc> And I missed OF, even worse
14:16:21 <DGInc> I did not quit
14:16:32 <DGInc (AFK)> I'm just AFK
14:33:48 <ynpvisitor79> ..
14:39:16 <DGInc (AFK)> Hi Kevin
14:41:48 <Kevin L> Morning
14:48:51 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
14:53:58 <Kevin L> Morning Dave.
15:00:52 <ynpvisitor79> ..
15:10:26 <Dave from B> Anyone else just lose this page for a few minutes?
15:11:14 <ynpvisitor79> yes, weird
15:11:19 <ynpvisitor73> not that I noticed
15:11:26 <ynpvisitor73> I must not have been looking though
15:11:54 <DGInc (AFK)> a lot today because ór my ISP is being a d*** and do some maintenace ór i just can't connect to the server of the website
15:16:59 <DGInc (AFK)> yay, finished my homework for tomorrow
15:20:02 <DGInc> OF preplay
15:25:13 <DGInc> OF
15:46:18 <ynpvisitor22> Will be interesting to see if we get a bee soon.
15:47:20 <ynpvisitor2> Yesterday, some one asked if any coyotes had been seen recently. Just before it got too dark to see last night a coyote was nosing around the Old Faithful benches.
15:47:37 <DGInc> ummm... BH predicted between 1519 and 1919, but they are geysers, they don't obey predictions :P
15:47:51 <ynpvisitor22> Cool, and thanks.
15:48:08 <ynpvisitor22> For the coyote update
16:01:13 <ynpvisitor2> Aurum
16:01:35 <kc (working)> nice
16:02:54 <Kevin L> Nice way to start the shift.
16:03:21 <ynpvisitor2> Thought you'd like that.
16:05:03 <Kevin L> It will be interesting to see what BH does for us today.
16:07:51 <ynpvisitor22> So I can not find any road construction info. Trying to plan my trip. Anyone know where they buried it?
16:08:57 <Kevin L>
16:09:05 <ynpvisitor22> Not under road conditions, construction, or plan your trip
16:09:45 <Kevin L> To be more exact:
16:11:51 <ynpvisitor22> Does not say anything for planning a trip. For all I read, all the roads could be closed this summer. But what should I expect from the government?
16:12:47 <ynpvisitor22> Thanks anyway.
16:13:18 <ynpvisitor48> Those links seem to provide current road status...what you looking for 22?
16:13:26 <Dave from B> It doesn't appear the 2016 info is posted. I only see 2015 info.
16:13:48 <Eric> Morning all
16:14:32 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
16:15:17 <Kevin L> Hi
16:16:05 <Eric> You going to be in the park this summer Kevin?
16:17:02 <Kevin L> I do have a week reserved in July but not 100% sure I will make it.
16:19:00 <ynpvisitor79> Send some feedback to the park website- 2016 info should be on there, imo
16:19:05 <ynpvisitor79> oh, they left
16:20:57 <Eric> Ya, 2016 info actually is there
16:21:10 <Eric> Scroll down on this page:
16:21:19 <Eric> Has all the opening dates and info
16:22:52 <Eric> I guess the construction info isn't posted for the year yet.
16:24:25 <Kevin L> It is odd that it would not be posted now. It is something that has to be planned months to years ahead.
16:24:39 <Eric> But doesn't some of it depend on snow pack?
16:25:23 <Dave from B> Maybe, with it being the centennial year that there are no major projects?
16:25:25 <Eric> Probably that I think through the logistics
16:25:39 <Eric> that would be nice :-D
16:26:01 <ynpvisitor79> 2 years ago they started removing snow to get to the trees - logging started even before roads were open to the public
16:29:25 <Kevin L> With the conditions tearing up the roads and the short construction season I really can't see a year where there would be no construction.
16:29:40 <Kevin L> Abend. Done with the parties?
16:30:13 <ynpvisitor78> that is weird the construction info is not there. Maybe they are all done.
16:30:26 <Betty> Oblong
16:30:35 <Betty> yep
16:30:46 <ynpvisitor78> it's great the park is open until Nov 7 this year.
16:31:10 <Kevin L> Now watch this be the biggest snow year ever...
16:31:44 <ynpvisitor78> you mean so they close anyway? I hope not
16:32:42 <Kevin L> Last year they could have stayed open most of the Winter without plowing.
16:33:05 <Kevin L> More snow this year already and more coming in a couple of days.
16:33:23 <Dave from B> We have had only 24" of snow this snow season
16:33:33 <ynpvisitor78> not much for Yellowstone predicted. Passing squalls is all
16:33:50 <Kevin L> We got some flurries down here.
16:33:59 <ynpvisitor78> quite a change from last year's totals
16:34:35 <ynpvisitor78> for Dave from B
16:35:04 <ynpvisitor78> or was that 2 years ago, when did you get all that snow?
16:35:05 <Kevin L> Intellicast is showing 1 to 3 inches on both Sat & Sun.
16:35:33 <Dave from B> it was 2 years ago when we were building our house.
16:35:40 <ynpvisitor78> if the precip is in the afternoon it will be raining
16:35:50 <Dave from B> 65 here yesterday
16:35:56 <ynpvisitor78> thanks Dave, that was a wild winter for you guys
16:37:24 <Kevin L> We have an 80 degree day predicted already.
16:45:43 <ynpvisitor78> it never got cold in the basin last night, will be interesting to see how warm it gets today
16:46:33 <Kevin L> Going to be above freezing for sure
16:59:00 <Betty> OF
16:59:35 <Kevin L> Explosive start
17:11:47 <Betty> indy
17:12:03 <Betty> .
17:12:03 <Betty> .
17:12:06 <Betty> .
17:12:52 <Dave from B> Need alert sent?
17:12:53 <Betty> are all awake?
17:13:05 <Betty> I can do
17:13:26 <Eric> Awake!
17:13:35 <ynpvisitor56> already got my text :)
17:13:48 <Betty> great
17:14:07 <Eric> Need coffee now :-D
17:14:32 <Betty> 1111 was the start time Kevin. I saw it
17:15:28 <Kevin L> I wonder if yesterdays BH was a double interval.
17:15:48 <Kevin L> sounds good Betty.
17:16:27 <Betty> yep :-) BTW, Happy Birthday, lc
17:16:46 <Betty> hope you are around
17:17:08 <Ryan> Hope those guys on the hill hang around a bit...
17:17:13 <Kevin L> Hope those lucky people don't wander too far.
17:17:28 <Betty> hehe, same thought
17:17:41 <Jake> I'm here for my 18h BH
17:17:44 <Ryan> As they step off the BW
17:17:49 <Jake> oh hey, look ;)
17:18:07 <Betty> ha ha ha, Jake ;-)
17:18:29 <Ryan> I actually think he is on the BW, just off the snow.
17:18:45 <Eric> Group picture :-)
17:18:48 <Betty> correct, Ryan
17:19:14 <Kevin L> Lot of customers for BH today.
17:19:41 <Kevin L> Little slippery!
17:22:12 <Kevin L> Hope Grand doesn't go while we are watching BH.
17:22:30 <ynpvisitor54> off boardwalk
17:22:50 <ynpvisitor54> Tom Murphy is giving a photography class
17:23:00 <ynpvisitor54> not sure that is his group though
17:23:04 <Ryan> I thought so too, but I am 99% sure they simply stood off the side of the snow.
17:23:18 <Eric> Agree Ryan
17:23:26 <Jake> they're like 2 feet ABOVE the boardwalk
17:23:37 <Ryan> So they ARE off the BW!!!
17:23:41 <Jake> that's off boardwalk and illegal to the letter of the law
17:23:42 <Eric> haha..
17:23:54 <Ryan> Call LE, shut em' down!!!
17:23:56 <Eric> law..just a rule
17:24:40 <ynpvisitor54> when I first signed on, someone was off a little by Depression
17:24:57 <Ryan> Thats where we thought too, but they werent off.
17:25:24 <Jake> they were on the BW, but off the snow. Depression has a wider boardwalk right there
17:25:29 <Betty> why do they leave the bug?
17:25:32 <Ryan> Exactly.
17:25:46 <Ryan> They may not know, Betty.
17:25:55 <ynpvisitor54> they are going to a spot for better photos, just out of cam sight I bet
17:26:07 <Betty> hope they do
17:26:10 <Ryan> If thats TM's group, yes id say so
17:26:11 <Eric> BH 1126
17:26:12 <Betty> BH
17:26:16 <Ryan> HELLO bee....
17:26:21 <ynpvisitor54> and taht one guy IS off
17:26:37 <Eric> Nope...
17:26:43 <Betty> no, still on bw
17:26:44 <Ryan> He is NOT off. Thats the Depression spur.
17:26:51 <ynpvisitor54> go tall BEE
17:26:52 <Dave from B> Nice
17:27:15 <Eric> At least it doesn't look like it to me I should say :-)
17:27:27 <Eric> Nice BH
17:27:37 <Ryan> They justs did the same thing where you could actually see them step infront of the snow but stay on BW.
17:27:44 <ynpvisitor54> wonder if Grand will be right after again
17:27:46 <Ryan> Dep?
17:28:09 <Ryan> That is a very tall BH.
17:28:13 <Betty> not me, Ryan ;-)
17:28:26 <Ryan> :)
17:28:34 <Eric> Ya, it seems very erect
17:28:56 <ynpvisitor54> well see that one guy?
17:29:05 <Ryan> He is NOT off.
17:29:07 <Betty> I don´t see Depression
17:29:10 <Eric> haha
17:29:13 <Kevin L> Not much wind to knock it down.
17:29:36 <Eric> Nice that all of those people get to see it close up
17:29:47 <ynpvisitor54> very nice a whole group got it
17:30:10 <Ryan> Techinically I have been off BW there too.... I stood on the railing several times to shoot over a crowd.
17:30:28 <Ryan> I think Rocco or someone helped steady me while I used the other had to shoot.
17:31:05 <Eric> Grands turn
17:31:24 <Kevin L> He is on the BW now for sure.
17:31:35 <Betty> that was fun, part one
17:31:39 <Ryan> Daisy
17:31:40 <Kevin L> Daisy
17:31:40 <Betty> Daisy
17:31:40 <Eric> Ya, they were just standing on the cleared BW on the corner
17:31:41 <ynpvisitor76> Daisy
17:31:41 <Jake> Daisy ie
17:31:45 <Ryan> 1131ie
17:33:11 <Ryan> Kevin - I got a roll of slow speed B&W 35mm film to shoot.
17:33:31 <Eric> what ISO Ryan?
17:33:33 <Ryan> Gonna shoot and develop a test roll before my TAG trip in a month.
17:33:36 <Ryan> 100.
17:33:51 <Eric> nice
17:33:52 <Ryan> Contemplated 50, but the grain isnt all that much different and the 100 is a tad sharper.
17:34:14 <Ryan> I will be going with a roll of 100 and a roll of 400.
17:34:15 <Kevin L> Sounds fun. Haven't done that in a long time.
17:34:30 <Ryan> Its loads of fun. Really makes you think before shooting.
17:34:39 <Eric> haha, yes it does
17:34:47 <Ryan> Taking 120mm velvia slide film to southern UT in June :)
17:34:55 <Eric> Nice
17:34:57 <Dave from B> ..
17:34:57 <Ryan> (I cant develop that on my own...)
17:35:02 <Eric> What you shooting it with?
17:35:14 <Ryan> 35 - Canon AE-1
17:35:30 <Eric> the 120
17:35:32 <Ryan> 120 - friend of mine has a good medium format they will let me borrow for the trip.
17:35:38 <Eric> nice
17:35:45 <ynpvisitor76> Grand
17:35:50 <Betty> grand
17:35:54 <Eric> I have a nice F1 body and some lenses :-D
17:36:04 <Ryan> I do have an OLD yashica. I cant remember the model of the 120 I will borrow, but I am almost sure its a minolta.
17:36:06 <Eric> Probably never get rid of that though
17:36:21 <Ryan> I have a 28mm, 50mm, and a 70-210mm lens for the 35, and a range for the 120 too
17:36:59 <Eric> If you can get a hold of any wide L it, it is worth it.
17:37:09 <Ryan> Yeahhhhh not happening :(
17:37:19 <Eric> It will make a bigger difference than the film you are shooting on
17:37:29 <Ryan> IF I had a full frame DSLR I'd get the 14mm L
17:37:35 <Ryan> but its over $3000
17:37:36 <Betty> nice of Grand to wait for BH and Daisy
17:37:46 <Ryan> The best for my crop sensor is Canon's 10-18mm.
17:37:47 <Eric> That is a sweet piece of glass
17:37:48 <Kevin L> I have a Yashica I bought in Germany. You could develop and print them for the price of paper at the rec center.
17:38:05 <Ryan> Nice! this is an old Twin Lens thing....
17:38:28 <Ryan> Well - I gotta go to class. Carrying the Ae-1 around today to start shooting the test roll, I will develop it next week.
17:38:29 <Eric> Yep, the twin lens medium formats are cool...I have a couple of those
17:38:40 <Eric> Enjoy
17:39:20 <Ryan> My other option has been to shoot SLOW 120 black and white in the Yashica. It has a lot of aperture settings, but it only has 4 shutter speeds - 500, 300, 30, and Bulb.
17:39:32 <Ryan> adios
17:40:19 <Kevin L> When i got the camera I got a Petri 28mm lens with it. The cool thing is the serial number was 000001!
17:40:33 <Eric> wow
17:40:44 <Eric> It might have been that on all them :-P
17:47:23 <Betty> seemms to be a 1b
17:47:43 <Eric> yep
17:47:48 <Eric> Q
17:47:49 <Kevin L> I think I can get my NoDoz out now.
17:48:08 <Betty> fun part 2 (Daisy) and fun part 3 (Grand)
17:48:16 <Eric> Just point it at OF and sleep
17:48:19 <Dave from B> Lion is due
17:48:29 <Betty> true Dave
17:48:52 <Kevin L> There goes my nap. don't you have some fish to sell Dave?
17:49:03 <Dave from B> Always
17:49:32 <Kevin L> Can you fax me some rainbows?
17:50:15 <Dave from B>
17:50:34 <Betty> oohhhhh, nice :-)
17:50:41 <Kevin L> Not quite what I had in mind.
17:50:52 <Dave from B> Didn't think so
17:50:55 <Kevin L> Brookies would even make me happy
18:04:56 <Eric> Kevin:
18:05:28 <Dave from B> That's more like it
18:05:51 <Eric> That lake is about 5 hours from me...great fly fishing only place in central oregon
18:06:01 <Kevin L> Dave can have the snake.....
18:09:24 <Kevin L> I woud like to do some stream fishing in Utah again. The stream fish are a lot better than the lake fish.
18:10:11 <Eric> depends on your lake :-)
18:10:33 <Eric> Those atlantic salmon up in hosmer look pretty tasty
18:11:21 <Eric> That is about as close to a pristine lake as you can get in the US
18:11:23 <Kevin L> The stream fish usually have firmer meat. since they have to work a bit.
18:11:31 <Eric> True
18:11:48 <Eric> I like fatty fish :-P
18:12:02 <Eric> more like bacon...
18:12:50 <Kevin L> I like a good firm fillet.
18:13:44 <Kevin L> Cod are great even though they aren't in a stream.
18:13:51 <Dave from B> ..
18:14:39 <Dave from B> Kevin, have you ever had ling cod?
18:14:54 <Kevin L> I don't think I have Dave.
18:15:11 <Dave from B> I bet Eric has
18:16:19 <ynpvisitor34> So much for the BH prediction.
18:16:51 <Kevin L> I have had Pacific cod and Icelandic cod. Icelandic is my favorite but hard to find.
18:17:23 <ynpvisitor34> sure the cost of eating one of those atlantic salmon up in hosmer would be worth it
18:17:34 <ynpvisitor34> I am not sure that should say
18:18:22 <Betty> Lion
18:18:26 <ynpvisitor34> Lion looks good
18:19:04 <ynpvisitor34> Must be an ini
18:19:14 <Kevin L> Yes it is.
18:22:36 <ynpvisitor34> The lake trout in Yellowstone lake would be good, even though they may have enough mercury to dissolve your gold crowns.
18:24:19 <ynpvisitor34> Is that a lone bison behind plume area?
18:24:58 <Kevin L> Looks like it
18:25:23 <ynpvisitor34> has that hump for sure
18:25:57 <ynpvisitor34> Well enjoy.
18:26:47 <Dave from B> Maybe nps would like me to be the distributor for their lake fishing program?:)
18:27:05 <Betty> OF
18:28:22 <Eric> why so much mecury in the yellowstone lake fish?
18:32:36 <Eric> Looking at this chart:
18:33:01 <Eric> There mercury seems lower than most other places.
18:33:08 <Eric> their....
18:33:51 <Eric> Did I miss something?
18:44:39 <Eric> rift maybe
18:57:15 <Kevin L> Grotto?
19:10:24 <ynpvisitor2> 28 on my temp here on chat, it is way warmer than that
19:10:29 <ynpvisitor2> wonder what is up
19:11:33 <Kevin L> It reads from the OF Ranger station. No temp update there since 0715.
19:16:23 <ynpvisitor85> Could it be penta
19:38:51 <Kevin L> Lion
19:38:52 <Betty> Lion
19:38:56 <Betty> LC
19:39:12 <ynpvisitor2> dual!!
19:39:22 <Betty> great
19:40:46 <woodstock1228> Lion
19:43:25 <ynpvisitor80> I see Will is in the basin
19:43:28 <Kevin L> Is Will in the park?
19:43:48 <ynpvisitor80> Can't see White on the webcam
19:43:52 <Betty> looks like
19:44:23 <ynpvisitor16> when in doubt log white
19:51:21 <ynpvisitor2> he must have gotten some time off from school
19:51:35 <ynpvisitor2> nice long weekend if he is already there
19:51:51 <ynpvisitor80> Monday is a holliday
19:52:51 <ynpvisitor2> yep, so 5 days, We will have all kinds of in basin times
19:59:17 <ynpvisitor2> OF
20:09:50 <Betty> Riverside
20:10:39 <Kevin L> Temp has updated
20:18:25 <Dave from B> Did I miss anything?
20:18:49 <Betty> Will is in the park :-)
20:19:05 <Dave from B> He skipping school today?
20:19:43 <ynpvisitor2> he must be
20:19:52 <ynpvisitor2> and tomorrow
20:21:21 <ynpvisitor16> I dont have school today
20:22:24 <Kevin L> Engineers don't skip school.
20:22:56 <Andrew> well sure, I at least have a ton to do this weekend myself
20:24:27 <Kevin L> Me too. Grown men will be crashing expensive cars at Daytona!
20:31:39 <Kevin L> Daisy ie
20:46:27 <Kevin L> Pretty toasty out there. Hope Will brought his Summer clothes with him.
20:47:30 <Kevin L> Lost my streaming.
20:49:11 <ynpvisitor2> me too, Will must want the park all to himself
20:49:23 <Kevin L> Works on iPad.
20:49:40 <Kevin L> Controls are up too.
20:50:10 <Eric> Did Dave break it again?
20:50:26 <Dave from B> Not me
20:51:23 <Kevin L> Maybe it is focused on a black bear in its den.
20:51:25 <Betty> I broke it :-p time for sleep anyway ;-)
20:51:36 <Kevin L> You sleep?
20:51:59 <Betty> yes...I know.... sleep is overrated.....
20:52:53 <ynpvisitor2> the NPS app has it too
20:53:00 <ynpvisitor2> Must be the chat page
20:53:20 <Betty> so Eric broke it
20:53:38 <Eric>
20:53:40 <Eric> broken
20:54:23 <Eric> Notified them via facebook.
20:54:28 <Kevin L> Not working on the NPS page
20:54:29 <Betty> ok. Night all
20:54:29 <ynpvisitor2> the app works though
20:54:34 <ynpvisitor2> weird
20:54:41 <Eric> it uses a different stream
