22:00:23 <ynpvisitor65> You get a better image with a full moon :(
22:01:37 <ynpvisitor14> It also helps if the moon is above the horizon
22:19:39 <ynpvisitor53> BH gazers have had a long watch
04:43:09 <ynpvisitor26> OF
05:10:00 <ynpvisitor26> Daisy ie
05:10:19 <ynpvisitor26> and Sawmill ie
05:15:48 <Dave from B> Good morning Jimbo and numbers
05:15:58 <Jimbo Cobalt> Hi Dave
05:16:07 <Jimbo Cobalt> Cobalt is famous for blueness
05:17:18 <ynpvisitor26> .
05:17:26 <ynpvisitor26> and very toxic
05:18:41 <Jimbo Cobalt> Somewhat toxic, not as bad as cadmium
05:19:09 <ynpvisitor26> :-)
05:19:27 <ynpvisitor26> causes cancer
05:20:52 <Betty> oops, was still a number
05:21:04 <Betty> morning guys
05:21:56 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
05:21:58 <Betty> so it is as toxic as snow ;-)
05:22:29 <Betty> morning Dave and Jimbo
05:22:37 <Jimbo Cobalt> Yup - weirdly enough, radioactive cobalt is used to irradiate tumors
05:22:52 <Jimbo Cobalt> and it's in vitamin B12
05:22:59 <Betty> true
05:23:13 <Jimbo Cobalt> Just depends on where it's encountered. Don't eat it
05:44:53 <Betty> time to head home. bbl
06:39:16 <Dave from B> Wonder how many people are at the rockpile
06:40:14 <747> ? what is rockpile ?
06:40:49 <Dave from B> Fan & Mortar Geyser
06:41:07 <747> Thank You
06:44:16 <Kevin L> All of them Dave.
06:44:39 <Dave from B> :P
07:08:05 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
07:11:13 <Kevin L> Hi Dave.
07:22:03 <Kevin L> Well we are getting Turban times so someone isn't at the rockpile.
07:28:01 <Dave from B> Turban Delay even
07:34:22 <Kevin L> You should bring a lot of reading material Dave.
07:45:24 <Dave from B> Yep...sitting is in the forecast!
07:46:50 <Kevin L> Rain in rhe forecast too.
07:51:12 <ynpvisitor55> Dave's trip is too far out yet to know the weather.
07:51:51 <ynpvisitor55> I am wondering how SteveO posted a D0 as his first Turban?
07:52:48 <Kevin L> Ever been to the park in July when there isn't rain?
07:54:02 <ynpvisitor55> Yes, many July's lack rain. I feel this July we will be begging for it
07:54:07 <Kevin L> Daisy
07:54:25 <ynpvisitor55> June is usually rainy, July not so much
07:54:52 <ynpvisitor55> Yet this June, very little rain fell in YNP
07:56:07 <ynpvisitor55> When do you arrive Dave?
07:56:12 <Kevin L> I think the standard weather report is hot with a 30% chance of afternoon thunderstorms.
07:56:22 <Dave from B> 55, SteveO was hanging around Sawmill Group. I bet others were watching Turban earlier
07:56:51 <ynpvisitor55> No one posted anything so I was wondering, thanks
07:56:54 <Dave from B> 55, July 8 around 1630-1700
07:57:36 <Dave from B> Weather this June in Blgs reminds me a lot of 1988. We are now over 2" behind normal and we were at normal only 5 weeks ago!
07:57:51 <ynpvisitor55> What Kevin described sounds like May and June to me.
07:57:57 <Dave from B> Only 0.25 of rain in June. That is BAD
07:59:07 <Kevin L> This time of year we get steam, not rain.
07:59:13 <ynpvisitor55> Could be a bad fire season
07:59:51 <Kevin L> A thunderstorm came through here yesterday and started 7 new fires in 3 hours.
08:00:02 <ynpvisitor55> Wow
08:00:16 <ynpvisitor8> what?!
08:00:32 <DGInc> that's pretty bad
08:00:56 <Kevin L> I diiidn't think there was anything let in Lovell canyon to burn after the last few years.
08:03:50 <ynpvisitor603> Went in June for the first time, usually come in September when there always seems to be fires
08:04:04 <ynpvisitor603> Lot clearer views, especially from up on Washburn
08:05:31 <Kevin L> I usually come later too and it was nice not to have a lot of smoke.
08:08:58 <ynpvisitor55> It does not look like Uncertain is erupting for SteveO this trip
08:11:13 <ynpvisitor55> I also wonder if yesterday's storm changed things up at F&M
08:11:31 <ynpvisitor55> Time will tell
08:11:39 <DGInc> yep
08:11:58 <Dave from B> 55, I hope it goes today
08:26:41 <DGInc> LC ie
08:27:55 <ynpvisitor55> Either a Turban delay or SteveO moved to F&M
08:28:51 <ynpvisitor14> his last post was 1020 (7 minutes ago)
08:29:01 <Kevin L> There is a Turban at 1020
08:31:04 <ynpvisitor55> Thanks, my GT did not refresh
08:38:45 <Dave from B> Belated good morning Jake
08:39:05 <Dave from B> and DGInc (Good evening)
08:39:19 <DGInc> Hello Dave
08:42:22 <DGInc> having dinner, brb
09:02:22 <ynpvisitor14> grand
09:03:13 <ynpvisitor55> Nice tall start!
09:04:29 <Dave from B> yippee
09:05:22 <DGInc> I missed a Grand start... dang it
09:05:33 <DGInc> at least Beehive didn't went
09:13:11 <ynpvisitor55> Nice 2nd too!
09:21:48 <DGInc> OF
09:29:12 <DGInc> LC
09:29:26 <DGInc> Lion ns ini
09:29:52 <DGInc> Lion SOON ns ini*
09:29:55 <ynpvisitor14> Lion fooled you
09:30:08 <DGInc> yep, bad kitty
09:31:29 <DGInc> at least we know it's waking up =)
09:31:58 <ynpvisitor14> :)
09:32:55 <DGInc> Iceland is farther away than Yellowstone atm...
09:40:25 <DGInc> .
09:41:56 <DGInc> Oblong?
09:42:22 <ynpvisitor603> West Triplet?
09:43:01 <DGInc> Iceland keeps crashing...
09:47:31 <Dave from B> Kevin, do you know if andrew has caught an F&M yet this year?
10:00:21 <DGInc> school trip?
10:01:32 <ynpvisitor14> most schols are out for the summer. So probably some other group
10:01:53 <DGInc> you have already summer holiday?
10:02:40 <ynpvisitor14> yep
10:02:48 <ynpvisitor29> School has been out here for a month?
10:03:03 <DGInc> I have to go about 2.5 weeks to school for 7 weeks summer holiday
10:19:55 <DGInc> brb
10:37:18 <Dave from B> Dasiy ie 1237
10:41:34 <Kevin L> Don't know if Andrew got F&M yet Dave.
10:42:40 <Dave from B> I hope he has
10:43:29 <Kevin L> Me too.
10:44:05 <ynpvisitor603> I know he took a couple days to try and catch it while we were there
10:44:14 <ynpvisitor603> but F&M decided to do an almost 8 day interval
10:44:27 <ynpvisitor603> then followed it up with two 4 hour intervals with daytime eruptions
10:44:37 <ynpvisitor603> 4 day intevals
10:45:11 <Kevin L> I was hoping his Dad would get it while he was there.
10:46:34 <Dave from B> I'm anxiously awaiting the next eruption to see how window looks for my trip.
10:47:52 <ynpvisitor603> We had to give up after day 7 :(
10:48:13 <Kevin L> Bummer
10:49:48 <ynpvisitor603> Here's to hoping it's still going in early Sept
10:50:30 <Dave from B> 603, F&M gives a LOT of heartache to all gazers.
10:50:56 <Dave from B> That's why some people scream like weirdos when they see it for the first time!:D:D
10:51:38 <Dave from B> Not going to name any names:)
10:51:46 <Kevin L> It is a thrill the first time you see it.
10:52:07 <DGInc> no Lion yet?
10:52:38 <ynpvisitor603> Last time we caught it, it was also a lot of work but so worth it
10:53:16 <Dave from B> So, if Jake was giving odds for a walk up F&M, they would be high?
10:53:39 <ynpvisitor603> Was all the way back to Black Sand basin when I heard splashing in Main
10:53:59 <Kevin L> There were a bunch of us who parked there for 40 hours to catch it the first time. It was a "principle of the thing" deal.
10:54:57 <DGInc> 40 hours?! Standing there, waiting for it to erupt... wow
10:54:58 <Dave from B> Yes, we can all get very stubborn about leaving a watch
10:55:12 <DGInc> I see
10:55:21 <Kevin L> It was worth it. I did get one with a 15m wait which I would consider as a walk up.
10:56:19 <Kevin L> We did sleep and hit Lower Hamms after an event cycle. Lots of Dari Gold Chocolate milk.
10:57:27 <Dave from B> The excitement that builds during a lock is pretty amazing...I have experienced that part
10:58:13 <DGInc> and when it's a false lock the excitment dies down immediatly?
10:58:23 <ynpvisitor603> You get to learn a lot while waiting for F&M
10:58:56 <DGInc> OF
10:59:00 <Dave from B> False lock is like bully stealing your lollipop in first grade
10:59:03 <Kevin L> We had some guy complaining that it blocked the path to Morning Glory.
11:00:18 <DGInc> c'mon OF... why did you have to be annoying and hit the camera?
11:01:59 <ynpvisitor4> people do not stand around waiting for F & M, it is more a sit than a stand
11:02:28 <Dave from B> At least Riverside and Grotto are nearby
11:02:43 <ynpvisitor4> Spa, Daisy
11:03:16 <DGInc> Sometimes Giant...
11:04:32 <ynpvisitor4> so will gazers be at BH or F & M?
11:04:50 <Kevin L> Artemesia is also close.
11:05:06 <DGInc> a few at BH, but the main part at F&M I think
11:05:07 <Dave from B> problaby about 90 minutes before some will head to BH
11:05:28 <ynpvisitor4> BH not as regular the past couple days
11:05:48 <ynpvisitor4> Ben abandoned it last night 1/2 hr before it went
11:05:58 <DGInc> ouch...
11:06:07 <ynpvisitor603> Depends on how long ago that last event cycle and what type of cycle it's in
11:07:00 <DGInc> I think we soon get a short interval for Beehive (9 to 10 hours), which starts a new regular interval time
11:09:15 <ynpvisitor4> BH may have other ideas
11:09:54 <DGInc> I hope it doesn't decide to go dormant or starts to be very irregular
11:10:41 <ynpvisitor4> no sign at all of dormancy
11:11:05 <ynpvisitor26> Lunch time. Que BH.
11:11:37 <DGInc> gtg, bye
11:29:37 <Jimbo Cobalt> How did camop know Lion was ready to go?
11:30:44 <ynpvisitor14> yes
11:35:43 <Kevin L> camop has a slot to put a quarter in to make it work.
11:39:21 <Jimbo Cobalt> You've got to be impressed with the technology
11:39:37 <Dave from B> 9hr15min since end of last Lion series was the camops clue
11:41:30 <Jimbo Cobalt> But that won't always work
11:42:31 <Dave from B> I haven't checked lately but interval is "normally" 7-10.5 hours
11:46:49 <Dave from B> Family is pusingto get "BHI...The world's best alarm clock" T-shirts after 2 early morning calls on the radio last year
12:12:20 <Dave from B> A plea to Xanterra and Delaware North. How about souvenirs of geysers besides OF?
12:15:40 <Eric> Yep...A coffee mug shaped like BH cone :-)
12:18:10 <Dave from B> Or....."You can have OF....I'll take Grand....more volume, more height, longer duration"
12:27:04 <Biddle> Ill go for a Steamboat then
12:27:13 <Biddle> Or maybe Giant/Giantess
12:28:55 <Dave from B> Now, BH can go...Betty is here!
12:29:09 <Betty> :-)
12:30:02 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
12:30:16 <Biddle> Hi Betty, Eric
12:30:49 <Betty> hi Dave from B and Biddle
12:32:05 <Betty> Giant mug is not a good idea. Coffee will poor out at the front side ;-)
12:32:41 <Dave from B> :D
12:32:43 <Biddle> haha! you have to have one that holds a milion gallons to be the plumbing system
12:32:45 <Dave from B> :D
12:33:52 <Betty> who is shaking the tree?
12:34:41 <Betty> OF
12:38:05 <Dave from B> I think it is Kevin
12:46:33 <Betty> Lion
12:46:52 <Betty> LC
12:47:49 <at> Yay! Just checked into OFI with BH view. Any news from over there?
12:48:25 <ynpvisitor14> no bh yet
12:48:38 <Betty> but it is due
12:48:49 <at> Whew. In the window tho, right?
12:49:38 <Betty> splashing right now
12:49:53 <Betty> better go outside :-)
12:50:30 <Betty> cool. Have fun!
12:57:39 <Dave from B> AT, I would head to the hill
12:58:01 <Dave from B> 45 minutes for a possible Lion #3
12:58:14 <Dave from B> No Aurum on GT either
12:58:32 <Dave from B> Unless you want to join the masses at the rockpile.
13:12:53 <at> At BH with splashing. On a normal day, this is my favorite tv show on my computer. Today, yay!
13:17:08 <ynpvisitor23> that's cool - it's always a worry when you are driving in
13:18:09 <Dave from B> Yes, more than a few times BH shows up on GT before I get to Gardiner
13:19:51 <Betty> Daisy
13:22:17 <ynpvisitor23> looking for people standing there is always a good clue. :)
13:28:17 <ynpvisitor99> looks like the OF indicator is moving over to BH...
13:31:50 <Dave from B> I know what BH is waiting for.
13:32:16 <Betty> need to go home?
13:32:35 <Dave from B> Meeting my wife on a brewpub patio in 26 minutes
13:32:42 <Dave from B> with the dog
13:33:35 <ynpvisitor23> Looks like a Tilts Baby entry should be a note, not a time
13:34:39 <Dave from B> Good eye, 23. That's a quick turnaround for TB
13:35:55 <at> Gazer at BH says it's a "Ranger Delay". BH won't go while ther is a ranger watching😀
13:36:07 <Dave from B> haha
13:36:18 <Betty> :-)
13:36:31 <Dave from B> AT, have you met lc or Kitt yet? They should be at BH
13:38:11 <ynpvisitor23> someone should tell donnie to edit that one
13:42:10 <at> I am advised that they are here but not right at BH
13:45:23 <Dave from B> Thanks at. with the heat, they are probably inside waiting for BHI radio call.
13:45:40 <Dave from B> Time for me to go. Have a great evening everyone!

13:47:11 <Betty> haha
13:47:29 <Betty> do we need a text?
