22:02:17 <Michael> Nope. Logged as Lion initial on GT. Thanks Andrew!
22:06:49 <ynpvisitor36> well... this is an awful view
22:08:52 <ynpvisitor23> Moon will rise in about half hour so that should shed some light at %55
22:26:36 <DGInc> thanks 23
22:35:06 <DGInc> I think we may have an Indy
22:35:10 <Michael> Beehive may not wait for the moon...
22:35:12 <DGInc> not sure though
22:37:03 <DGInc> not sure if it is helpful, but .
22:37:05 <DGInc> .
22:37:06 <DGInc> .
22:37:19 <Michael> There's the GT report.
22:39:08 <Michael> And it looks like we'll have multiple flashlights once Beehive goes.
22:39:25 <DGInc> think so too
22:40:12 <DGInc> unfortunately I have to go soon due to school (0840 here)
22:42:13 <DGInc> OF
22:42:40 <Michael> Down in front!
22:42:51 <DGInc> yep
22:43:09 <Michael> The backlighting is very dramatic, though.
22:43:12 <ynpvisitor97> :p
22:43:17 <DGInc> indeed
22:46:03 <ynpvisitor97> Was OF a short.
22:46:13 <DGInc> no, about 3.25 minutes
22:48:47 <DGInc> I'm not going to make it harder than it already is, gtg, bye
22:48:52 <DGInc> enjoy Beehive
22:51:36 <Michael> And there we have it.
22:56:06 <Michael> Wherever you are, DGInc, I hope you get to see the next one.
00:13:13 <ynpvisitor23> In her last 100 eruptions over A 33 year time span, giantess is now 10 days over the last longest interval in that time frame, which was the interval prior to her last eruption
04:27:44 <Kent> Good mornng Dave
04:28:18 <Dave from B> Good morning Kent
04:35:13 <Dave from B> Have you been to the park recently?
04:52:50 <Kent> Took bear class from the Institute at the Buffalo Ranch on the 3rd. Coming up for 3 nights on the 4th. One of those nights down in the Annex in a tent cabin.
04:56:27 <Dave from B> Who were your instructors? Which class?
05:00:39 <Kent> Bears of Yellowstone. Mark Haroldson, Sue Consolo-Murphy. Class was wonderful for a nerd. Lots of terrific info and a visit to a bear den. Blacks and Griz out and about to see. Perhaps even a better class comng up in February.
05:03:02 <Dave from B> I took that class about 15 years ago. It was fun. Sue taught it back then as well
05:04:33 <Dave from B> There is SO much to learn about YNP.
05:07:09 <Kent> Harldsson probably knows as much about griz as anyone on earth. Best bear stories ever. His wife, Cecily Costello also spoke. She is Montana bear biologist.
05:07:32 <Kent> Butchered that name :)
05:08:03 <Dave from B> Once we enter the empty nest era, I hope to being taking institute classes again.
05:08:11 <Dave from B> 2 years to go
05:08:23 <Kent> Hang on :)
05:09:35 <Dave from B> haha
05:21:29 <ynpvisitor4> "In the Bear’s Den" – Feb 11 & 12 Cecily Costello, Mark Haroldson, Frank van Manen. As mentioned Costello ia a biologist for Montana and Haroldson chief biologist and van Manel head of griz recovery for USGS. $318 @ the Buffalo Ranch which in mid-winter is a spectacular and unique place to stay.
05:22:43 <Dave from B> Never been there in the winter
05:32:11 <Jimbo Copper> Back from vacation, hi all
05:33:18 <Dave from B> Morning Jimbo. I was wonering where my periodic table lessons were last week!
05:33:25 <Dave from B> wondering*
05:59:50 <Jimbo Copper> Lava lake at Kilauea is at a high level: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/cams/K2cam/images/M.jpg (updated about ~10-15 min, have to refresh browser)
06:09:30 <Jimbo Copper> Groblong
06:23:50 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
06:31:24 <Jimbo Copper> Sprinkler splashes
06:37:24 <Dave from B> Daisy 0837ie
07:05:05 <ynpvisitor89> Grand over 8 hours again
07:05:33 <Dave from B> Intervals from last 4 days are AWFUL
07:06:09 <ynpvisitor> All Dave's fault. He keeps threatening a visit.
07:07:15 <Jimbo Copper> Hey, I see that Depression water
07:07:54 <Dave from B> I better take some suntan lotion. Going to be baking watching Turbans all day long
07:07:55 <ynpvisitor89> Almost all one bursts too
07:08:32 <ynpvisitor89> Suntan lotion? Is this 1960? Hopefully you mean sun block
07:08:57 <ynpvisitor> Baby Oil is best
07:09:29 <ynpvisitor89> I remember friends using it!!
07:09:29 <Dave from B> haha...yes sunblock:D
07:09:43 <ynpvisitor> Take some Fiber tabs also, may help it get regular.
07:10:18 <ynpvisitor89> Or small hotel soap bars to throw at it
07:11:04 <ynpvisitor89> Go raid a maids cart at the Super 8
07:11:14 <ynpvisitor> And lotion is not a 60's thing. I remember the Copper Top commercials, and I seem to remember them int the 80's
07:11:21 <ynpvisitor> into
07:12:07 <ynpvisitor89> Well it was mostly over by then, tanning on purpose
07:12:24 <ynpvisitor> And something about a dog pulling the bottoms down on a girl showing the white bottom?
07:16:53 <ynpvisitor89> No F & M watch or BH watch yet, so they might as well watch Turbans!
07:17:48 <ynpvisitor89> Over 15 hour BH interval last night
07:21:22 <Dave from B> I'm sure breakfast will be after long sit at Grand this morning
07:41:27 <Biddle> Looking at a picture of a steamboat water phase, That must have been a sight to see!
07:42:41 <ynpvisitor> Did I miss Steamboat this year? Or is that a general comment.
07:43:01 <Biddle> just a general comment

08:53:39 <ynpvisitor603> I haven't heard any activity from Ledge this season
08:54:11 <ynpvisitor44> Why is West Gate ugly ? Not backed up to town, should be less than 15 m wait
08:54:31 <Betty> thanks 603. would be nice if it will wake up again
08:54:32 <Biddle> it went in february

08:55:00 <Kevin L> Looks ugly to me!
08:55:22 <ynpvisitor603> When we were at Norris, while not totally quite, it did not appear to be in any way post eruptive. Plus you've got a couple folks and the rangers there most days reporting no activity..
08:56:12 <ynpvisitor44> Ledge is over for now
08:56:44 <Dave from B> Sorry, Betty...I know you missed lEdge by just a few minutes last year:(
08:57:32 <Betty> it was 1 or 2 hrs. would have been nice, but that´s geysers :-)
08:58:03 <Betty> good reason to come back and back again ;-)
08:58:52 <Dave from B> You need a reason to come back?:D
08:59:08 <Betty> haha, no, not really
09:32:23 <Betty> a geyser!

09:56:25 <Dave from B> BH needs to wait for Mr/Mrs TN
09:58:07 <ynpvisitor12> are they on the way?
10:03:21 <Dave from B> Yes, should be there early afternoon
10:04:26 <Kevin L> Did you see the UFC at the Gateway track Dave?
10:16:18 <Betty> LC
10:18:46 <Dave from B> Kevin, I didn't
10:19:06 <Kevin L> It was great: http://www.foxsports.com/nascar/story/john-wes-townley-spencer-gallagher-fight-gateway-motorsports-park-wreck-truck-series-062616
10:20:40 <Betty> wow, that´s a crowd at Doublet pool
10:21:19 <Kevin L> I think there is a tour group on GH
10:22:35 <Dave from B> You call that a fight. Looks like a bear hug contest!:D
10:23:23 <Kevin L> I think one was more interested in fighting than the other.
10:24:30 <Kevin L> There were some good takedowns.
10:25:34 <Dave from B> Yeah. one guy was defintely playing defense and not looking to get fined
10:26:16 <Kevin L> I think the first couple of blows to the face helped that along.
10:27:10 <Kevin L> The track was live at that point and they had to throw a red flag.
10:28:29 <Dave from B> I forgot about that. That';s dangerous
10:29:06 <Kevin L> Be interesting to see what Nascar does about it tomorrow.
10:33:12 <Kevin L> Aurum
10:33:16 <Kevin L> .
10:33:17 <Kevin L> .
10:33:18 <Dave from B> Aurum 1233ie

10:34:39 <Dave from B> If you watch a boiling pot long enough it does boil!
10:35:05 <Betty> hi Jimbo!
10:35:11 <Kevin L> Nice to get it without a lot of steam.
10:36:01 <Kevin L> Too bad it didn't go while all the people were up there.
10:37:51 <Betty> Lion
10:38:17 <Betty> ini
10:38:28 <Betty> there is the crowd
10:38:32 <Biddle> and the people walk right past...
10:38:44 <Dave from B> good time to be on the hill.
10:39:03 <Jimbo Copper> Nice start
10:39:07 <Biddle> it looks so much bigger from here than on the BW
10:39:21 <Betty> looks a bit like OF today
10:42:33 <Biddle> nice steam phase
10:51:34 <ynpvisitor12> .
11:30:57 <Betty> OF
11:48:16 <ynpvisitor77> Is it only in NYC a person can get in trouble for riding a horse? Reminds me of that Salsa commercial.
11:53:15 <Kevin L> Should be about time for a Lion.
11:53:45 <ynpvisitor77> I am hoping for bees
11:53:56 <Betty> and BHI within 30 min
11:54:14 <Kevin L> Getting about time for that too.
11:56:19 <Betty> Lion
11:56:23 <Dave from B> There's your lion
11:57:12 <ynpvisitor77> Kevin gets the prise for lion calling
11:58:41 <ynpvisitor77> Prize, someone moved the Z
11:59:06 <Betty> haha
11:59:09 <Kevin L> You have a Dave (tm) keyboard?
11:59:52 <Dave from B> haha 77
12:00:22 <Kevin L> Daisy sometime between now and dark.....
12:00:32 <ynpvisitor77> Maybe from running Mac OS on a IBM computer?
12:00:47 <Betty> you hold the z, Kevin: I quote: "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"
12:01:25 <ynpvisitor77> Kevin has a date with Daisy. His Wife know?
12:01:38 <Kevin L> Shhhhh.
12:02:00 <ynpvisitor99> so that's why Daisy is always late
12:02:01 <Betty> beter question: does DONALD know?
12:02:16 <Dave from B> You afraid of Donald?:)
12:02:19 <Betty> I lost a t
12:02:47 <ynpvisitor77> Never thought of Kevin being like Howard on Last of the Summer Wine.
12:02:55 <Kevin L> We thought that was a German word.
12:03:00 <Betty> next to z on my keyboard ( not imported from Dave)
12:05:01 <Kevin L> There were some good monster movies on last night so I didn't get much sleep. Had one that a giant snail was eating sailors on the Salton Sea and then one where a giant lizard was tearing up NYC.
12:05:51 <ynpvisitor77> Good use for NYC!
12:06:20 <Kevin L> It was a good one.
12:06:49 <Kevin L> They sure had a lot of giant bugs and such in the 50s.
12:07:21 <Betty> I don´t like monster movies and horror movies
12:07:50 <Kevin L> The old 50s ones are fun.
12:07:52 <Betty> oh, I like Jack Arnold movies
12:08:02 <Betty> they were great
12:09:02 <Kevin L> Harryhausen was good too.
12:10:18 <ynpvisitor77> had to look up Jack Arnold
12:10:50 <Betty> Tarantula is a Jack Arnold
12:11:41 <Kevin L> Didn't he also direct Perry Mason?
12:12:12 <Betty> don´t know
12:13:18 <ynpvisitor77> Well don't anyone go anyplace. I have to leave, so enjoy BH. Worked for Grand this morning.
12:13:21 <Kevin L> Tarantula was a good one.
12:14:09 <Kevin L> Have fun. Maybe BH will wait for you.
12:20:13 <Kevin L> Looked up Perry Mason and Jack Aronld did do some of them.
12:20:49 <Kevin L> Pretty talented. Those are very different.
12:21:04 <Betty> yep
12:21:40 <Betty> LC ie
12:24:28 <Betty> we just left my prediction for bhi
12:25:14 <Dave from B> My turn then...My window was 1400-1600
12:25:27 <ynpvisitor72> it is waiting for the next Grand window
12:26:27 <Dave from B> ..
12:26:33 <Kevin L> It seems to like Grand windows.
12:26:36 <Dave from B> It is waiting for lc
12:27:08 <Kevin L> Last night's BH was interesting. A backlit OF followed by a very bright BH.
12:27:17 <Kevin L> No moonlight.
12:27:26 <ynpvisitor72> I think they had at least 3 lights on it, maybe 4
12:27:46 <ynpvisitor72> Andrew, Tara, SteveO, Will all have lights
12:28:01 <Kevin L> I think you are right. There were at least 4 on the BW as they left.
12:28:27 <Kevin L> I sure hope Andrew got that F&M.
12:28:29 <ynpvisitor72> SteveO posted a short video, it looked very bright
12:28:53 <ynpvisitor72> there were a lot of gazers there, not sure if he was one of them
12:29:08 <Kevin L> The OF was pretty interesting although the timing had me worried.
12:29:24 <ynpvisitor72> where does Andrew work?
12:30:15 <Kevin L> Upper Hamms.
12:30:59 <ynpvisitor72> thanks Kevin
12:33:30 <Dave from B> Betty, you watching Euro's todday?
12:34:13 <Betty> yep
12:34:35 <Dave from B> What's the deal with Spain? Team just getting old?
12:35:30 <Betty> they played sooo bad. but Italy were surprisingly strong
12:36:32 <Betty> Spain looked tired and had no idea how to deal with the game
12:36:52 <Dave from B> You watching the England game live now?
12:36:58 <Betty> never seen them that weak the last 10 years
12:37:08 <Betty> yes :-)
12:37:38 <Dave from B> Speaking of major upset.....really, land of geysers is winning?:)
12:38:04 <Betty> they fight like Lions
12:38:18 <Betty> 2:1 in lead
12:38:34 <Dave from B> Can't wait to hear from Messi next
12:39:10 <Betty> you heard he quit playing for the national Team?
12:40:35 <Dave from B> He has many issues with Argentine Soccer Association. It will be interesting when that all comes out.
12:41:04 <Dave from B> Sounds like many of their players may not play for the national team anymore.
12:44:10 <Dave from B> Betty, his Barcelona golaie psyched him out. I think he tried to do something different on his shoout attempt.
12:47:30 <Betty> 3 min overtime
12:50:38 <Betty> unbelievable. they made it
12:54:07 <Dave from B> Germany Italy next round
12:54:38 <Betty> yes, this will be a tough one
12:54:42 <Betty> Daisy
12:55:43 <Dave from B> Betty, you have your finger on the button? Please press after next OF:)
12:56:41 <Betty> will do

13:27:38 <ynpvisitor72> going home early
13:29:53 <Betty> bye Dave
13:30:04 <Betty> hi Michael
13:30:07 <Biddle> Hi Michael
13:37:07 <Michael> Hi everyone. I'm watching the inspirational video linked above. Still hate the sound of my voice on tape. Let me know if BHI starts going in real life.
13:37:26 <Kevin L> I wonder if we have another series of 2 Lion.
13:38:24 <Michael> And now I miss Plume.
13:39:06 <Betty> yes :-(
13:39:08 <Kevin L> Geysers sure have been fickle this year.
13:39:38 <Biddle> For years my family thought plume was "five times geyser" because a random person on the boardwalk mentioned that to them after they had see it.
13:39:52 <Biddle> *seen
13:40:54 <Kevin L> It was fun to watch it scare unsuspecting tourists.
13:40:58 <Michael> I've heard much worse informal names for features than that.
13:41:40 <Biddle> "pathetic little hole" :P
13:42:35 <Kevin L> It did describe it though.
13:43:15 <Biddle> very true, until it blew up
13:44:10 <Kevin L> That always changes a geyser a bit.
13:48:53 <Kevin L> I thought I saw fuzz.
13:48:59 <Kevin L> .
13:49:00 <Kevin L> .
13:49:00 <Michael> Oh. I guess BHI was watching the video too.
13:49:01 <Kevin L> .
13:49:01 <Kevin L> .
13:49:02 <Kevin L> .
13:49:04 <Kevin L> .
13:49:19 <ynpvisitor10> little geyser next to BH is going!

14:03:47 <Michael> 80 degrees. Nice warm day for a shower.
14:05:24 <ynpvisitor67> Kitt always has a radio in one pocket, and a bar of soap in another.
14:05:39 <Betty> haha
14:06:22 <ynpvisitor12> I wouldn't even joke about that
14:06:52 <Betty> that was just perfect before bedtime. Enjoy your evenings all and thanks for the button video again :-)
14:08:18 <Michael> Good night. I'm going to be a "fair weather gazer" and head out too.
