04:34:58 <Dave from B> Lion 633ns per vw
04:43:07 <David A pdx> OF
04:48:45 <Dave from B> Slept right thru that one:(
04:49:34 <David A pdx> oops - it happens!
04:50:44 <David A pdx> Dave, no one has entered a time for SC since 25th... it steams, but I've not seen anythingfrom it for awhile. normal behavior?
04:53:18 <Dave from B> I know it has periods of inactivity but I don't really know much about it.
04:54:44 <David A pdx> seems like it is in one of those periods!
04:56:03 <Dave from B> I'm anxious to see if BH went overnight
05:00:26 <Dave from B> Daisy was 0644 per GT
05:01:35 <David A pdx> Sprinkler should be going fairly soon. Fairly = ??
05:03:08 <David A pdx> like now!
05:04:24 <David A pdx> These warm mornings don't make for good steam plumes!
05:13:00 <ynpvisitor77> looks like Rocco heard BH last night after midnight
05:13:10 <Dave from B> Turban Dlay...last interval was 38 minutes
05:13:15 <Dave from B> Delay
05:13:42 <Dave from B> BH was approx 0035 per GT/Rocco
05:14:18 <Dave from B> Thanks 77...missed your post
05:27:18 <David A pdx> Sprinkler should be...
05:29:21 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
05:42:50 <David A pdx> Lion!!
05:43:38 <ynpvisitor54> Nice Lion to login to
05:43:55 <David A pdx> It is!
05:44:07 <David A pdx> looks like LC is trying to go
05:44:48 <Jimbo Xenon> Not to be confused with a warrior princess
05:44:51 <David A pdx> hey Jimbo!
05:45:07 <David A pdx> why not?! you have something against warrior princesses?!?! LOL
05:48:02 <Jimbo Xenon> No, of course not, but Xenon is a NOBLE gas
05:48:43 <David A pdx> thumbs up!
05:54:43 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
06:05:43 <Dave from B> Shortest Turban yet...hope we are close... next one around 809
06:12:06 <Kevin L> Bring lots of reading material.
06:12:16 <David A pdx> next Sprinkler should be ~08:19 - if we can see the steam...
06:20:23 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
06:20:31 <Dave from B> Never a good day when there are more Turbans than OF's on GT
06:20:34 <David A pdx> yowsa!
06:21:13 <David A pdx> glad Sprinkler made it under the wire! b4 being pre-empted by the bigger neighbor!
06:31:22 <Dave from B> Mroning Jenna
06:31:23 <ynpvisitor77> .
06:31:28 <Dave from B> Next Turban is due
06:32:06 <Dave from B> Oblong 0830 per GT
06:32:40 <Jenna> hi Dave
06:40:00 <Dave from B> Kevin, how are the chicks doing?
06:40:29 <Kevin L> Getting bigg and a few are getting noisy which is fatal.
06:41:37 <Dave from B> Because you can't sleep or becasue the fox weill find them?
06:42:19 <Jenna> or both lol
06:42:27 <Kevin L> Because the neighbors can't sleep. Don't want to ruffle that kind of feathers.
06:42:55 <Dave from B> Always nice to be a good neighbor
06:43:14 <Kevin L> Kind of tough when you raise them from a cottonball size.
06:44:14 <David A pdx> Nice spurts from Sawmill
06:44:22 <Kevin L> Plus the fact that combined roosters are like a mini WWF.
06:44:46 <Kevin L> Well enjoy Giantess. Off to the dentist.
06:45:02 <David A pdx> we'll tell you about it!
06:45:09 <David A pdx> have fun in the chair
06:45:25 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie!
06:45:56 <Dave from B> Thanks as always for the sacrifice, Kevin!:)
06:47:14 <David A pdx> Sprinkler pretty consistent with 25-26 min intervals this morning - at least the ones I have good start times for.
06:51:34 <Dave from B> Lion 0851ie
06:56:43 <Dave from B> Turban 9 OF 6
07:03:07 <Dave from B> 5 Lion series so far...nice
07:05:28 <David A pdx> if we can see it, next Sprinkler ~0910.
07:07:37 <Dave from B> Finally, 3 hours later I'm done with second quarter payroll:)
07:10:58 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
07:11:39 <ynpvisitor8> You don't just push a button in Quick Books?
07:14:00 <David A pdx> Thanks Cam Op!
07:14:18 <David A pdx> on that happy note, I'm going to sign off for now. Enjoy the day!
07:16:26 <Dave from B> 8, with 14 on the staff, it takes a little time!
07:18:25 <Dave from B> up to a D6 now
07:23:42 <Dave from B> Sad part is that Grand could still wait another 90-120 minutes
07:31:15 <ynpvisitor8> It is waiting for the rain storm.
07:31:23 <Dave from B> Turban 11 OF 6
07:31:39 <ynpvisitor77> ohhhh I missed that we got an E time.
07:31:50 <Dave from B> Yes 114E
07:33:20 <ynpvisitor8> Interesting the time difference. I did not know it took that long for hot water to go down hill.
07:35:47 <ynpvisitor77> question- is that overlook past Mystic Falls visible ? If 6 people were there in bright shirts would we see them?
07:37:14 <ynpvisitor8> You can see flash lights at night, don't think you can see people at the overlook, possible if the cam zoomed in you could see them on the path in spots.
07:37:52 <ynpvisitor8> That is a friday question as that is the day we go sight seeing.
07:39:04 <ynpvisitor77> not the Friday overlook, the one behind Biscuit
07:39:36 <ynpvisitor8> Sorry
07:40:09 <ynpvisitor77> I have done it but not really sure where it is on that bluff
07:42:45 <Dave from B> 77, that would be a long ways away. A mirror maybe...not sure about anything else
07:42:45 <ynpvisitor77> not really sure where Biscuit is in relation to that cliff either now that I think of it
07:50:17 <Dave from B> Grand start
07:50:23 <Dave from B> 940ie
07:50:32 <Dave from B> oops 949
08:08:22 <Jenna> OF 1005
08:11:48 <ynpvisitor74> Biddle
08:11:53 <ynpvisitor74> woops
08:12:11 <Dave from B> Morning Biddle
08:12:38 <Biddle> Morning Dave
08:19:53 <Dave from B> Now, gazers can finally have breakfast
08:22:07 <ynpvisitor93> Or lunch
08:22:15 <Dave from B> So, what do you think the shortest interval for F&M might be for the next eruption?
08:29:22 <ynpvisitor93> It will go just after you leave the park.
08:29:56 <ynpvisitor77> 5 days
08:30:20 <ynpvisitor77> or, 15
08:31:54 <Dave from B> Thanks for such a short window!:)
08:32:23 <Dave from B> It will be at 4days 6 hours when I arrive. Would you go straight there to check things out?
08:34:34 <ynpvisitor77> Multiples of 5! 5, 10, 15, let's go with 6
08:34:40 <ynpvisitor77> oopes typo meant 5
08:35:14 <ynpvisitor77> I would just check the parking lot indicator before rushing down there
08:36:07 <Dave from B> haha
08:37:47 <ynpvisitor93> Dave understands typos.
08:45:50 <ynpvisitor93> We just missed Uncertain.
08:52:17 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
08:56:04 <Eric> Morning Dave! Getting excited yet? :-)
08:57:02 <Dave from B> I'm feeling overwhelmed trying to get my work done but once I get there I will be feeling GREAT:)
09:02:51 <Eric> Well, I hope the stars align for you and F&M cycles in your favor :-D
09:03:06 <Biddle> heading out for awhile. BBL (probably)
09:04:38 <Dave from B> If I could schedule it, I would pick Sat at 0930
09:05:19 <Dave from B> So, when you have an event cycle, how much time do you have to get to the pile of rocks?
09:06:31 <Eric> I assumed you had to be there because cycles turn into eruptions?
09:11:53 <Dave from B> I've even been thru a "lock" that unlocked.
09:13:39 <ynpvisitor93> You should get a refund of your park entrance fee.
09:16:52 <Dave from B> Daisy 1116ie
09:23:36 <kc (working)> castle 1117 gt
10:03:30 <Dave from B> Aurum is due
10:04:34 <Kevin L> Too late. It already went but nobody saw it.
10:12:42 <Dave from B> That was at 559wc!
10:16:39 <Dave from B> LC 1216ie
10:16:55 <Kevin L> I would miss it anyway.
10:17:31 <Kevin L> has the feed been choppy for you the last few days?
10:18:32 <Dave from B> It has been a bit choppy at times
10:21:44 <ynpvisitor17> Lot's of people in the view causes higher bandwidth usage.
10:22:00 <Eric> Which can cause choppiness
10:22:00 <Kevin L> It has been terrible today for me. Yesterday was also bad.
10:22:58 <Dave from B> 6:53 is shortest Grand interval in last 14 intervals
10:23:53 <Kevin L> No, this is really choppy. goes for a few seconds then stops for half to a full second. I have had lots more people in view and it is only pixelated. This is even choppy when no people are in the view.
10:36:35 <Eric> is controller feed choppy too?
10:37:59 <Betty> hello :-)
10:38:33 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
10:38:51 <Betty> hi Dave from B
10:39:09 <Betty> how is the countdown?
10:40:38 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:40:53 <Betty> hi Eric
10:41:09 <Eric> Dave, you need to add hours until leave to your nickname :-D
10:41:21 <Betty> yep
10:41:55 <Eric (~)> I have the infinity symbol :-P
10:43:58 <Betty (70)> :-)
10:44:15 <Dave from B> 70?
10:44:20 <Betty (70)> days
10:44:32 <Betty (70)> from now
10:45:09 <DavefromB (54)> Arrival time
10:45:28 <Betty (70)> thought you go this weekend?!?
10:45:30 <DavefromB (54)> If there are any bison in my wiay...look out!
10:45:43 <DavefromB (54)> 5 nights beginning Friday
10:46:00 <Betty (70)> or is it hours....ahhhh, I see!
10:46:27 <Betty (70)> GREAT
10:47:15 <Betty (70)> (my number fits for year of birth, right, Eric?) ;-)
10:47:16 <Eric (~)> Nice
10:47:35 <Eric (~)> Yep :-)
10:47:38 <DavefromB (54)> I think Giantess is ready. Where's Jake,? I need to place my bet:D
10:48:10 <Eric (~)> I think we figured out the odds, they where not as high as I expected.
10:52:33 <DavefromB (54)> Better chance than the lottery. I'll put $5 on seeing both Giantess and F&M during my trip. 10,000 to 1?
10:53:44 <Betty (70)> you sure will see both. Only question is: will they erupt?
10:54:56 <DavefromB (54)> haha....shhhhhhhhhhhhh Betty!:D
10:55:14 <Betty (70)> lol
10:56:01 <Betty (70)> first semi final starts in a few minutes
10:56:31 <Eric (~)> I think your odds are about correct Dave
10:56:48 <Eric (~)> they might be a little better than that
11:10:17 <DavefromB (54)> Hi, GV
11:10:50 <govixen> hi 54
11:11:10 <Betty (70)> hi GV
11:11:12 <DavefromB (54)> You think Ledge may awaken?
11:11:21 <govixen> hi 70. lol
11:11:35 <govixen> do I need a number to play?
11:11:52 <DavefromB (54)> How many hours before you go to YNP?
11:12:08 <Betty (70)> for Dave it is hours, for me it is days ;-)
11:12:22 <govixen> !! both good numbers!
11:12:44 <Betty (70)> yep :-)
11:13:29 <govixen> DavefromB (54), I haven't dug out my old books but I think Black Growler started spraying water in '11 or '12
11:13:48 <govixen> so if that's Ledge pre-play, we have about 4 years. :D :D
11:14:10 <Betty (70)> hahaha
11:14:38 <DavefromB (54)> Ok, then. I'll refrain from getting excited
11:15:07 <govixen> If I see anything from the actual vent, I'll let you know
11:15:11 <Betty (70)> you still have your Giantess plans
11:15:27 <Betty (70)> OF
11:15:44 <Betty (70)> is Graham home yet?
11:15:50 <govixen> going Saturday with some geyser beginners - how about F&M to get them hooked?
11:16:16 <govixen> DaveM are you here
11:17:19 <DavefromB (54)> I reserved F&M for 930 on Ssturday...c'mon down!
11:17:21 <Betty (70)> If F&M were my first seen Geysers, I would never leave the park again...
11:17:50 <govixen> but then they don't learn the agony of what it's REALLY all about
11:18:14 <Betty (70)> the get to know the years after, be sure
11:21:23 <DavefromB (54)> I agree, gv.....You need to learn to love to sit and wait
11:21:27 <DavefromB (54)> and wait
11:21:30 <DavefromB (54)> and wait
11:22:07 <govixen> and JUST miss one after really putting in the time
11:22:46 <govixen> mostly I would like them to see Beehive and Grand
11:22:59 <DavefromB (54)> It is hard to walk away when a geyser hasn't erupted
11:28:12 <ynpvisitor60> Well, it worked yesturday. So I am here for my lunch time BH.
11:28:56 <DavefromB (54)> 60, you have a good chance. hope you have at least an hour lunch!:)
11:30:37 <govixen> see you Saturday 54
11:30:45 <govixen> TTFN
11:31:13 <Kevin L> Nice sized hurricane in the Pacific: http://weather.unisys.com/satellite/sat_wv.php?inv=0&t=l12®ion=we
11:31:32 <Betty (70)> bye, gv. hey Kevin
11:33:56 <Kevin L> Hi Betty
11:34:23 <Kevin L> Look for BH about 1615
11:34:48 <Betty (70)> would love to get it earlier
11:35:04 <Kevin L> Me too
11:35:08 <DavefromB (54)> Kevin, that's too late for BH...better move your appt up:)
11:37:13 <Kevin L> This is for the car. The later you go, the fewer extra things they try to push on you. They just want to go home. Learned that trick from a mechanic.
11:37:18 <ynpvisitor60> Cool, think it will hit Vegas?
11:37:57 <ynpvisitor60> Go in late enough, they will take it apart, and keep it over night.
11:38:07 <ynpvisitor60> Lots of time to upgrade you that way.
11:39:31 <Kevin L> This is just an oil change so I don't worry about that one.
11:43:17 <ynpvisitor96> some cool photos from Hawaii: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/multimedia/index.php?newSearch=true&display=custom&volcano=1&resultsPerPage=20
11:45:50 <Betty (70)> LC
11:46:09 <ynpvisitor96> yeah!
11:47:57 <DavefromB (54)> Aurum will probably erupt during BH again
11:56:07 <Betty (70)> Daisy
12:12:50 <DavefromB (54)> I'm leaving in a half hour....that sounds about right
12:13:12 <Betty (70)> :-p
12:14:17 <ynpvisitor60> Looks like the rain is coming, BH should be about the same time as the downpour.
12:17:12 <Betty (70)> nice splashing from BH
12:18:52 <ynpvisitor60> It will not go soon, too many people watching.
12:23:41 <Betty (70)> indy?
12:24:16 <Betty (70)> think indy is not impressed by all the people
12:24:25 <Betty (70)> ding

12:47:21 <Kevin shop> Shop is my workshop. Sometimes wifi works there.
12:47:26 <Betty (70)> though I think it needs mor time
12:47:52 <Betty (70)> cool. Great you got the bug
12:50:52 <Betty (70)> OF ie

12:53:12 <Betty (70)> night all
12:58:05 <Graham> hello
12:58:57 <Graham> zzzzz
13:00:12 <Kevin shop> Wake up!
13:00:31 <Graham> im tired and done with work already
13:00:34 <Kevin shop> Did you get F&M?
13:00:45 <Graham> nope, i was up at Norris
13:00:53 <Graham> i gather it was a rather wet one
13:00:56 <Kevin shop> :p
13:01:08 <Graham> after all that time I spent there, frustrating to miss it
13:01:23 <Kevin shop> Has Andrew been able to catch one?
13:01:34 <Graham> yes, he has seen 2
13:01:41 <Graham> including Mondays
13:02:10 <Kevin shop> Great! I know he wanted one really bad.
13:02:17 <Graham> oh well, have to go back again to see them
13:02:26 <Graham> he saw a nice one before
13:02:49 <Graham> several gazers didnt go down because of the thunderstorm
13:03:12 <Graham> i did see the new big thing at Norris and 3 other new for me geysers
13:03:44 <Graham> and enjoyed a beehive shower
13:04:27 <Graham> no bear reports in the basin but one ran across the road in front of my car yesterday after the early Ftn
13:04:47 <Graham> there had been multiple grizzly reports prior to my arrival
13:05:25 <Graham> F&M should have erupted Friday morning, it had a great cycle and almost went into lock
13:07:51 <Kevin L> Wifi decided to quit on me.
13:08:21 <Kevin L> I had one of those. It ended up going late that night.
13:09:22 <Kevin L> When I was up there one ran across the road in front of her by Island Park. Not that common down there.
13:20:23 <Kevin L> Snow is forecast for the park next Monday.
13:23:33 <Graham> nice
13:38:16 <ynpvisitor77> snow??
13:38:53 <ynpvisitor77> that would cool things off and help fire danger, I am all for it
13:47:27 <kc (working)> wb Graham
13:49:11 <Graham> ty, not glad to be here
14:31:51 <Graham> OF
14:42:23 <ynpvisitor31> Dave from B should bring his rain gear!
15:04:16 <Graham> there were some heavy downpours
15:06:20 <ynpvisitor31> still happening
15:06:59 <ynpvisitor97> Keeps the crowds down.
15:12:12 <ynpvisitor31> no hope until mid Sept now for smaller crowds. Maybe the week before Labor Day
15:23:13 <kc (working)> u mean week after labor day?
15:24:39 <ynpvisitor31> no, the week before is actually pretty calm
15:25:03 <ynpvisitor31> school has started lots of places, and people hold off travel as they are planning on Labor Day
15:26:30 <kc (working)> my general rule is to not go between memorial/labor day
15:26:59 <ynpvisitor31> we notice a lull
15:27:15 <ynpvisitor31> all September is pretty crazy anymore, especially if the weather stays nice
15:27:32 <kc (working)> interesting to note, thanks
15:27:37 <ynpvisitor31> yw
15:27:50 <ynpvisitor31> the 4th was actually mellow, for park standards
15:28:24 <ynpvisitor31> I guess it falling on a Monday helped, as Saturday and Sunday were crazy
15:30:11 <ynpvisitor31> Grand is getting ready for Dave again...
15:30:41 <ynpvisitor31> also waiting for OF
15:36:10 <DavefromB (52)> Turban 16 OF 11
16:03:02 <ynpvisitor31> SteveO left or long Turban interval
16:04:43 <Graham> napping or watching Uncertain?
16:07:38 <ynpvisitor31> maybe so, still no post
16:08:00 <ynpvisitor31> Uncertain is 1037 on GT
16:10:56 <Graham> of
16:13:33 <ynpvisitor31> Dean posted horrendous winds at Artemisia
16:14:18 <ynpvisitor71> Looks like storm could be coming in.
16:15:41 <ynpvisitor31> Lion next?
16:20:54 <ynpvisitor31> Did we miss Daisy?
16:21:30 <ynpvisitor71> If it's that windy, may not have erupted yet.
16:22:17 <ynpvisitor31> looks hot there now
16:30:49 <kcmule> penta ie
16:32:49 <Graham> steam pnase, going into deep drain?
16:33:14 <Graham> at least we know SteveO is still there
