04:04:56 <ynpvisitor17> ty. I was wating for that.
04:05:51 <ynpvisitor17> Happy 4th July all
04:07:27 <ynpvisitor67> morning beehive
04:08:50 <ynpvisitor17> Possibility of two daylight BHs to celebrate today.
04:09:09 <ynpvisitor79> ty
04:16:21 <ynpvisitor17> Anyone got a direct line to the select group at BH to wish them all a Happy 4th?
04:17:53 <Betty> hey, good timing for me :-) Happy 4th July
04:17:59 <ynpvisitor79> OF
04:18:14 <ynpvisitor17> bad timing
04:18:32 <Betty> hope BH can wait a bit
04:19:08 <Betty> BH
04:20:03 <ynpvisitor17> will look much better from where they are all standing
04:21:17 <Betty> Steam behind the trees
04:21:53 <ynpvisitor17> can't see anything on this.
04:22:11 <Betty> very left side
04:24:42 <Betty> nice steam color
04:25:42 <Betty> looks like Grotto steam
04:26:31 <Betty> back to work. bbl
04:28:44 <ynpvisitor69> Graham caught BH from bike path.
04:31:41 <David A pdx> Good Morning!
04:43:16 <David A pdx> cool duet LC & Lion
04:45:04 <ynpvisitor44> aha David A pdx, caught you here
04:45:12 <David A pdx> it's me!
04:45:34 <GoVixen> I askd you a Q on FB but don't think you saw it
04:45:51 <David A pdx> oh! what was it?
04:45:58 <GoVixen> how long were you at Vixen the other day?
04:46:18 <David A pdx> hold on a sec!
04:47:12 <GoVixen> no prob- I was planning on UGB today, but, um, no Bee for me, so no rush getting going
04:48:02 <David A pdx> I'd been taking photos of Orby, and was next to Vixen. 1st photo at 11:04a/24th
04:48:57 <David A pdx> last photo at 11:07/a, but I'd started going to Corporal area.
04:49:34 <David A pdx> definitely done by 11:11a when I took a photo of the area with no activity
04:50:26 <David A pdx> I was in Corporal/Veteran area from 11:07-11:11.
04:50:57 <GoVixen> technology tells it all, doesn't it!
04:51:10 <David A pdx> hey, you can head to UGB and get some times on Sprinkler!!
04:51:12 <David A pdx> LOL
04:51:18 <David A pdx> it does!
04:51:37 <GoVixen> so do you have an idea on how long Vixen was not erupting before you got there?
04:51:55 <GoVixen> Looks like 3 minutes of nothing afterwards until it was out of sight
04:52:12 <David A pdx> it started while I was standing next to it - but my back was towards it, I was looking at something else.
04:52:49 <David A pdx> i was surprised/happy it started while I was there!
04:53:09 <GoVixen> but as you walked up, Orby, Porkchop, Pearl, etc, you didn't see one, right?
04:53:34 <David A pdx> definitely not going when I walked up to it.
04:53:54 <David A pdx> and none noticed on approach.
04:54:07 <David A pdx> Sprinkler should go soon.
04:54:34 <David A pdx> i did take a lot of photos of Orby.
04:54:46 <GoVixen> Great, thanks. The data on the long intervals is really important this year.
04:54:59 <GoVixen> I was hoping you would say you were there for 20 minutes, LOL!!
04:55:16 <David A pdx> cool! I posted time on GT (I think!)
04:55:37 <David A pdx> I was with some friends who wanted to get to Lamar and see animals...
04:55:50 <GoVixen> you did post it, thanks!
04:55:52 <David A pdx> My next trip I hope to spend time
04:56:04 <GoVixen> but if I track down people who only report one, sometimes I get good info
04:56:37 <GoVixen> Janet's blog, for example, said she waited 30 minutes
04:56:41 <David A pdx> cool. I want to finish posting photos from UGB first before I get to Norris
04:56:46 <David A pdx> wow.
04:56:56 <David A pdx> so, it is pretty erratic this year?
04:57:02 <GoVixen> Maybe you will see a sneaky Vixen in your Orby shots. :D :D :D
04:57:10 <David A pdx> LOL!
04:57:49 <GoVixen> Not erratic, its awesomely cool- doing a cycle that as far as we know, hasn't happened since 1984
04:57:53 <David A pdx> I kept hoping I'd see Echinus, but no luck.
04:58:38 <David A pdx> Sprinkler! ie
04:58:45 <GoVixen> I haven't even gone to look at Echinus, the YVO graph will tell me when I might want to spend time there
04:58:55 <David A pdx> this is true!
04:59:07 <GoVixen> so far, nada
04:59:25 <David A pdx> I saw it in '67
05:00:22 <GoVixen> I saw your comment that someone said you were lucky, but I can't comment on that on FB since current and former staff are in that group
05:00:53 <GoVixen> and they are not grasping what's going on, try as I might to explain it to them!!!
05:03:15 <GoVixen> brb- dog outside is tangled up bark bark bark
05:04:41 <GoVixen> K- so after you get thru your pics, if you could add an approximate "not erupting for x minutes" comment to your entry that would help
05:04:56 <David A pdx> OK. can do!
05:05:08 <GoVixen> cause after 4 more months of data I will forget this chat
05:05:38 <David A pdx> don't feel bad!
05:06:21 <David A pdx> I could download the entire batch of several hundred photos, and have a hard time editing all of them.
05:06:24 <GoVixen> but I will see your single entry and wonder!!! It's really FUN when you get what it's doing!!!
05:07:14 <David A pdx> I know the feeling! Like it's fun seeing Graham make entries on Sprinkler today and confirm what I'm seeing on wc
05:09:39 <GoVixen> If you could generally answer on FB maybe we can make it educational over there
05:09:55 <David A pdx> OK!
05:10:26 <GoVixen> like say didn't notice anything walking up- etc.
05:10:36 <David A pdx> OK!
05:11:27 <GoVixen> at the end of the cycle you definitely would have seen some walking up, and a quick return afterwards - but maybe not in time if you quickly went behind the trees
05:12:05 <GoVixen> was it full when you got there? (Should have asked that before..sorry)
05:12:57 <GoVixen> or maybe I'll save that one for FB - educate the masses. They got spoiled during these last few year and won't wait longer than 10 min
05:16:05 <David A pdx> it's a bit like walking to Black Sand Pool and finding no one there - except me!
05:16:24 <David A pdx> distance and time and determining factors!
05:16:46 <David A pdx> left an answer on FB - let me know if you have more ??s.
05:19:00 <David A pdx> I'm going to guess that Sprinkler will go in 4 - 8 minutes.
05:19:29 <GoVixen> great- I'll ask over there so others might start paying attention and give me clues on their GT entries
05:20:18 <David A pdx> you might also check flickr photos for Vixen. although exif info might not be mountain time
05:21:13 <GoVixen> That said, I will change, walk the dog and think about heading south. Wanna bet I don't make it past Norris? hahaha
05:21:44 <David A pdx> LOL! no bet!
05:22:39 <David A pdx> Orby was really active when I was there.
05:23:30 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie! (by steam plume!)
05:23:52 <David A pdx> thanks!
05:23:56 <GoVixen> Yeah Orby woke up with the May disturbance - fun to watch it from above but I can't keep track of it and Vixen from that overlook
05:24:17 <David A pdx> Glad to have seen it!
05:24:52 <GoVixen> have a great 4th, THANKS!
05:25:45 <David A pdx> you too! have a great day in the park! I'm envious you live so close!
05:28:31 <David A pdx> Daisy
05:31:16 <David A pdx> Sprinkler still erupting
05:34:31 <David A pdx> next Sprinkler 07:45 - 08:02.
05:44:20 <David A pdx> Cam op! Is it possible to include Sprinkler in view? Thanks.
05:45:12 <David A pdx> Mornin Kevin!
05:45:28 <Kevin L> Morning.
05:45:38 <Kevin L> Camops may be spotty today.
05:46:17 <Kevin L> Nice to see that F&M didn't fo overnight.
05:46:39 <Kevin L> Hope they get it today in the morning so they have awesome rainbows.
05:46:48 <David A pdx> that would be cool!
05:48:11 <David A pdx> rainbows in plumes are good!!
05:55:06 <David A pdx> splish splash
05:55:13 <ynpvisitor71> OF
05:55:36 <David A pdx> wow, delayed reaction
07:33:50 <ynpvisitor56> OF
08:13:20 <Kevin L> Looks like Graham is going to get wet again.
08:25:39 <Kevin L> Daisy
10:08:04 <Kevin L> Grand
10:17:27 <Kevin L> 2nd
10:17:36 <Kevin L> Long pause
10:43:51 <ynpvisitor58> Who broke F&M?
10:44:08 <Kevin L> Graham
10:48:21 <Dave from B> I thought so
10:49:29 <Kevin L> About time you woke up.
10:51:07 <Dave from B> Made it to within quarter mile of YNP on Sat/Sun
10:52:17 <Kevin L> And you didn't go there?
10:56:13 <Dave from B> Nope. Spent short trip wife my mom, wife and Parker. My mom isn't very mobile so mostly resting at silver Gate, eating, playing games and smelling pine
11:00:28 <Kevin L> You wouldn't have got F&M anyway
11:01:18 <Dave from B> looks like another trip without F&M:(
11:01:53 <Kevin L> Pretty crappy weather too.
11:05:08 <Betty> hello guys
11:06:44 <Kevin L> Hi Betty
11:07:24 <Betty> hey Kevin
11:07:47 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
11:08:23 <Betty> hey Dave
11:14:32 <Betty> LC ie
11:16:50 <Betty> sleepy afternoon
11:18:24 <Kevin L> Big party day here.
11:20:09 <Dave from B> Yep. party begins here at 1400
11:21:00 <Kevin L> Started here last night. Sounded like a war outside.
11:22:06 <Betty> oh, yes! Happy 4th July! :-) any fireworks today, Kevin?
11:23:03 <Dave from B> Have to sign off. Have a great day everyone. I'll be back in my normal desk tomorrow.
11:23:07 <Betty> Daisy
11:23:21 <Betty> have fun, Dave
11:23:22 <Kevin L> Well it is tradition to blow up my mailbox.
11:24:26 <Betty> haha, great.
11:30:34 <Kevin L> Mailbox usually survives now, but the first time I did it sure didn't.
11:39:23 <Betty> so, what is the difference between an Event and a Regular cycle for F&M?
11:39:29 <Betty> Lion sterting
11:41:53 <Kevin L> An event cycle is when the vents become active and it has a chance of eruption.
11:43:18 <Kevin L> I am not too familiar with those. Most of the people who know are probably down there now. kc would know more.
11:43:18 <Betty> yes, and a regular cycle?
11:43:54 <Betty> hope Graham gets them today
11:49:20 <Kevin L> I think a regular cycle would be the normal cycle without the vents erupting, but I am not sure on that.
11:49:52 <Betty> ok, thanks
11:50:03 <Kevin L> Been about 10 years since I have spent anytime there. It is a bit far for me to run up and back.
11:50:04 <Betty> LC ns
11:53:32 <Kevin L> Mt Washburn cam is smoky today.
11:56:07 <Kevin L> Nasty cloud moving in
11:56:30 <Betty> yes, looks really ugly
12:10:59 <ynpvisitor53> Happy 240 years of independence to all you Americans out there today!
12:11:36 <Kevin L> TY. It did happen a few years before I was born though....
12:17:22 <Kevin L> Here comes the rain
12:26:51 <Kevin L> Glad I am not at the rockpile.
12:40:02 <ynpvisitor86> F&M finally erupts. Of course it is in the middle of a storm.
12:53:04 <Betty> Lion
12:53:53 <Betty> yay, F&M
12:54:15 <Betty> cam is wet, Kevin
12:54:40 <Kevin L> I didn't do it!
12:54:56 <Betty> :-p
12:55:01 <Kevin L> Glad they got it. Hope Andrew was there.
12:55:39 <Kevin L> It was just waiting for the 4th of July!
12:56:02 <Betty> yep, a celebration F&M
12:56:54 <Kevin L> Afternoon fireworks!
13:10:13 <Betty> Oblong
13:14:39 <Betty> LC
13:32:38 <Betty> Grotto ie
13:33:49 <Kevin L> Probably won't be a camop for the BH tonight.
13:43:09 <Betty> it´s always amazing how the weather changes
13:44:28 <Kevin L> Don't like it? wait 10 minutes...
13:45:34 <Betty> no. It´s time for sleep. Celebrate today and have fun. Night all
13:46:13 <Kevin L> Night Betty.
14:02:59 <kcmule> castle ie
14:03:38 <Kevin L> That is it for me today. Enjoy the 4th. Don't know if any camop is picking up Graham's shift so I will leave it on wide.
15:31:27 <ynpvisitor33> yeah, F & M finally erupted!!
17:09:13 <kcmule> daisy ie
17:10:00 <kcmule> grand
17:15:18 <kcmule> some nice liquid fireworks from grand
17:20:08 <kcmule> 2b
17:40:53 <ynpvisitor33> Nice 2nd burst, now BH before sunset would cap a good day for gazers in the basin
17:50:41 <ynpvisitor23> So what is the difference between a "f&m event cycle", and a "f&m regular cycle"?
17:51:07 <kcmule> thought u were dinging for bhi :)
17:51:12 <ynpvisitor23> look like it
17:51:15 <kcmule> will send txt
17:52:46 <ynpvisitor23> Where is Grahamy?
17:53:19 <ynpvisitor23> Indy IE by the way if you do not know
17:53:51 <ynpvisitor23> Steam is surprising on the 4th of July.
17:53:54 <kcmule> last posted 1hr ago from lgb
17:54:23 <ynpvisitor23> Hope he is not in the grill!
17:54:57 <kcmule> an event cycle has an event, like bottom vent or main vent splash. but others would know more
17:55:36 <ynpvisitor23> Summer visitors must be smarter then spring visitors. They seem to walk away from important gatherings.
17:59:18 <ynpvisitor23> Thanks, F&M is one of those on the bottom of my bucket list. I am never in the park long enough to wait days for water to quirt out of the ground.
18:02:23 <ynpvisitor23> A name. Hello Michael
18:03:02 <Michael> Hi. everyone.
18:03:36 <ynpvisitor23> Is Dave from B or PDX learking?
18:04:44 <Michael> Any good ideas why I can't get stream to play today? I can get the preview image whileit's waiting for me to press the play button, but that's all.
18:04:59 <kcmule> try this link #23
18:05:17 <nofaithful> Try a hard reset or kcmules idea
18:06:08 <nofaithful> 's
18:06:28 <nofaithful> Good splashes so hope you can see
18:06:49 <Michael> Reset didn't work. Not a chat-page issue either, as the same happens when I go to the NPS site.
18:07:14 <Michael> At least I can view things like a still cam, thanks to the preview images.
18:07:14 <kcmule> missed aurum 2003
18:07:40 <nofaithful> bh
18:08:17 <nofaithful> Great back lighting
18:08:30 <David A pdx> i'm here!
18:08:49 <ynpvisitor88> Nice timing
18:08:58 <David A pdx> yep!
18:09:35 <nofaithful> So are you in pdx?
18:11:48 <nofaithful> It is shrinking!
18:12:42 <nofaithful> Lion looks like it is trying
18:12:42 <David A pdx> I'm not Dave B, but I am in pdx!
18:13:19 <nofaithful> Thought maybe you were out of town for the holiday.
18:13:41 <nofaithful> Like in Vancouver for the big show.
18:14:00 <David A pdx> I'm eating dinner in my home in PDX!
18:14:08 <David A pdx> nice addition to dinner!
18:14:29 <nofaithful> BBQ?
18:14:48 <nofaithful> Beer of course
18:15:11 <kcmule> did link work, its a docx file
18:15:13 <David A pdx> I do have a bottle of Session!
18:15:24 <David A pdx> but, a lambmeat loaf
18:15:43 <nofaithful> A greek 4th! I like it
18:16:05 <nofaithful> Well I am out of here for now.
18:16:11 <David A pdx> LOL, but I'm half Swedish!
18:16:48 <ynpvisitor88> Burgers hot dogs and diet root beer.
18:18:06 <ynpvisitor32> I've got openoffice. doesn't usualy have trouble with docx but the one from the link showed up blank.
18:19:04 <ynpvisitor32> Probably my fault for being cheap with software.
18:20:22 <kcmule> worth it to find freeware to read it, it is an fm flow chart
18:21:21 <David A pdx> Looks like Sprinkler is ie, but can't quite tell.
18:22:09 <David A pdx> The last reported eruption for SC is 25 June...
18:22:12 <ynpvisitor32> Yes. At least I have a copy now, and probably 4+ days before I need to understand F&M.
18:34:18 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
18:42:56 <kcmule> OF
18:47:20 <kcmule> Graham is at OF
18:48:05 <David A pdx> cool!
18:57:13 <David A pdx> kcmule - is Graham in a spot to watch Sprinkler in the next few minutes? I think it could start soon.
19:01:04 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
19:02:05 <kcmule> only know he posted last OF
19:02:22 <David A pdx> ok. tx!
19:03:06 <kcmule> de nada
19:03:43 <David A pdx> ejap nana!
19:04:11 <David A pdx> Marshallese for - 'it's not bad!'
19:05:50 <David A pdx> nice fountains from Sawmill
19:09:42 <Biddle> Just stopping in to get a break from family....
19:10:11 <David A pdx> hey Biddle! i was just about ready to sign off and get back to posting more photos on flickr...
19:10:53 <Biddle> Well, have fun. i need to leave and do some family stuff in a minute or two, just seeing if i can catch a geyser in the mean time
19:11:31 <David A pdx> oh yeah!
19:11:45 <Biddle> looks like a quiet evening for the geysers... :(
19:12:29 <Biddle> i guess i can stare at sawmill and sprinkler for a few minutes.
19:12:53 <David A pdx> if anyone is watching, or able to see anything about 21:25 - 21:35 Sprinkler could go about then
19:13:32 <Biddle> i might hang around for a bit. if not kc might
19:13:37 <David A pdx> Sawmill has had some nice bursts!
19:13:51 <Biddle> that is a nice looking sunset
19:14:25 <David A pdx> Sprinkler should is winding down from 21:01 eruption
19:15:30 <Biddle> you have been studying sprinkler a lot, i take it?
19:15:52 <Biddle> It is a pretty nice geyser. I enjoyed your video about it
19:16:12 <Biddle> Anemone ie, i think
19:17:10 <David A pdx> thanks! I'm going to do a new one - the first was a learning experience.
19:18:44 <Biddle> You might consider using some video stabilization software on it too... just a thought
19:19:09 <Biddle> I have to for all of my handheld camera videos.
19:19:26 <David A pdx> good idea. - and maybe cut some sections
19:19:52 <David A pdx> i should've had my tripod in the field with me, but it was in the room...
19:21:15 <Biddle> Stabilization software nowadays is good enough i usually don't use a tripod unless i have to hold it for a long time. youtube even has it built in
19:22:10 <David A pdx> Cool!
19:22:28 <Biddle> I like the flickr layout and its ability to do pictures a lot. I only use imgur to upload GT attachments because i can upload it with three clicks.
19:22:51 <Biddle> and the URL's are short
19:23:35 <David A pdx> good points. i have all my photos on flickr, and now they do videos, so it's easier to do all there.
19:24:12 <David A pdx> getting close to Sprinkler time!
19:24:21 <Biddle> they also allow a lot more storage than some sites
19:25:01 <Biddle> how was BH?
19:25:21 <David A pdx> I think the quiet - no splashing - Sprinkler time is more than the 3 min I guess a few days ago.
19:25:32 <David A pdx> I missed the first part, but it was pretty cool
19:26:17 <David A pdx> right now I'd say there is no spouting visible in the crater (no steam).
19:27:16 <David A pdx> that is - if someone were watching from Liberty
19:27:26 <David A pdx> And now we have steam!
19:27:42 <David A pdx> and lots of it
19:28:36 <Biddle> what editing software are you using to edit the sprinkler video?
19:29:14 <David A pdx> I think it's the MS software.
19:29:46 <David A pdx> it is a nice sunset!
19:31:00 <Biddle> If you can find it for free somewhere (i did, can't remeber where, it was years ago) i would get the Adobe software. It is tons better and gives better quality output
19:31:01 <David A pdx> well, i'm going to sign off for now - for real this time!
19:31:32 <Biddle> 'night, have fun sleeping through fireworks
19:32:01 <David A pdx> yeah, it is a bit noisy in Portland, although not as noisy as battlefield Vancouver, WA
19:32:15 <David A pdx> ttfn
19:32:22 <Biddle> Ha! Provo is the worst
19:32:52 <David A pdx> really? Vancouver sounds like a battlefield - but this will probably be their last year. No more fireworks after this year.
19:33:39 <Biddle> I know a few people who have blown over 7k on fireworks
19:34:49 <Biddle> Anyway, i need to head out 'night
19:35:06 <David A pdx> g'night! later everyone!
19:48:54 <kcmule> daisy ie
20:16:22 <kcmule> OF ie
21:52:11 <ynpvisitor57> OF ie
