22:09:45 <ynpvisitor53> stream is back
22:58:34 <ynpvisitor38> It must be cloudy. I have a good half moon here in SLC and no clouds. Ought to be plenty of light.
03:53:38 <ynpvisitor45> looks like Daisy

05:27:49 <DGInc> now it's waiting for Lion
05:29:51 <DGInc> Lion
05:43:55 <Jimbo Vanadium> Vanadium again - it's a great element
05:44:13 <David A pdx> Hej Jimbo!
05:44:17 <Jimbo Vanadium> hi
05:44:26 <DGInc> Never heard of it Jimbo
05:45:00 <David A pdx> Sprinkler next up!
05:45:26 <DGInc> within now and 2 minutes
05:45:31 <DGInc> ...
05:45:40 <David A pdx> yep.
05:45:51 <Jimbo Vanadium> Makes really colorful compounds and solutions
05:46:15 <Jimbo Vanadium> Used in alloys, esp. stell
05:46:18 <Jimbo Vanadium> steel

05:46:46 <DGInc> yay
05:49:50 <Jimbo Vanadium> Maximum Oblong??
05:50:18 <DGInc> Rocket?
05:50:29 <Jimbo Vanadium> I don't know - big steam
05:50:44 <DGInc> that's for sure
05:51:31 <DGInc> Artemisia could be possible too though
05:59:29 <David A pdx> its fluffy!
06:12:15 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
06:12:39 <DGInc> hi Kevin
06:12:58 <Kevin L> Hi.
06:13:26 <David A pdx> Hej Kevin!
06:18:23 <Kevin L> Looks a bit better up there today. Wish we could pipe some of that cool weather here.
06:19:05 <David A pdx> Portland has been below normal everyday except 3 this month.
06:19:57 <David A pdx> pleasantly below normal!
06:21:56 <Kevin L> Below normal here too. Even made it to the 70s last night!
06:23:00 <David A pdx> 70s at night sounds warm...
06:29:57 <Kevin L> Not as warm as the mid 90s!
06:35:41 <DGInc> Hi Jake
06:36:21 <Kevin L> Long line at the north entrance.
06:37:41 <David A pdx> Sprinkler
06:40:10 <DGInc> Lion
06:40:14 <David A pdx> Lion
06:41:17 <DGInc> thought I just saw an LC splash
06:44:27 <DGInc> Daisy
06:45:00 <DGInc> thanks cam cleaner
06:45:05 <David A pdx> Sprinkler still going
06:45:28 <DGInc> might be near the end though
06:45:36 <David A pdx> yep.
06:45:58 <David A pdx> energy definitely less than when it begins
06:46:05 <DGInc> yep
06:46:34 <David A pdx> burps less energetic
06:56:05 <ynpvisitor80> home now Jake?
07:02:24 <David A pdx> Sprinkler soon
07:04:04 <David A pdx> warm temp isn't good for steam... ugh
07:05:05 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
07:05:36 <David A pdx> not much steam, but can see the spouting
07:07:25 <David A pdx> on that happy note, i'm leaving for now.
07:14:30 <kc (working)> another artemisia start from deanl
07:15:10 <Biddle> 'morning kc
07:15:38 <kc (working)> mornin Biddle
07:15:56 <Kevin L> Nice!
07:18:38 <Jake> hi all, I'm back at "work"
07:18:57 <Kevin L> Work?
07:19:11 <Jake> was a surprise trip to YNP for a day and a half -- saw a lot of geysers in the rain
07:19:42 <Jake> I was backpacking in the Wind Rivers with a friend but I sprained my ankle mildly and we decided to hike out a bit early
07:19:56 <Biddle> like this? https://www.google.com/search?q=dilbert+%22work%22&safe=active&espv=2&biw=1920&bih=955&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiq8KrVnO7NAhUXzWMKHf31DHAQ_AUIBigB#imgrc=iAf5CGLokYCDZM%3A
07:21:55 <Kevin L> Dilbert was an NDOT employee.
07:22:26 <Biddle> Haha!
07:23:12 <ynpvisitor22> Just emailed you Jake - there is no rest for the GT admins.
07:23:17 <ynpvisitor22> Sorry about your ankle!!
07:24:51 <Jake> the ankle will be fine I think. I got massive blisters from my foot swelling up though. Never had anything like it
07:25:15 <Biddle> ouch
07:25:18 <Kevin L> Ugh. I think the blisters can be worse than the sprain.
07:26:19 <Kevin L> North gate is still jammed up.
07:26:39 <Biddle> Haha, I was out fixing somebody's internet the other day, i can tell you that the one phrase i hate to hear is: "I have a friend who's an internet guy, he told me _____"
07:28:50 <ynpvisitor22> seeing some geysers is a good alternative
07:28:52 <ynpvisitor22> ouch - bugger of a deal
07:28:53 <ynpvisitor22> .
07:29:13 <Biddle> big OF preplay
07:30:06 <ynpvisitor22> my comments came in the wrong order - you''ll have to interpret
07:32:19 <Kevin L> I am like Oddball in Kelly's Heros Biddle. "I just drive them. I don't know what makes them work."
07:33:14 <Biddle> Haha! I have to know how they work, thats how i make money.
07:34:22 <Kevin L> Glad there are people like you in this world!
07:37:35 <Biddle> OF huge preplay!
07:37:48 <Biddle> OF (finally)
08:11:57 <Betty> morning all
08:12:12 <Biddle> 'morning Betty
08:12:17 <Kevin L> Hi (yawn) Betty.
08:12:39 <Betty> hi Biddle and Kevin
08:24:58 <Betty> Lion
08:25:45 <Kevin L> Still no Aurum though.
08:37:25 <Betty> is Jake there for his 9 hr Beehive?
08:39:06 <Kevin L> He is in the basin but I am not sure where.
08:44:56 <Eric> Morning
08:45:11 <Betty> hey Eric
08:45:17 <Kevin L> Hi Eric.
08:46:46 <Eric> Hi Betty and Kevin :-D
08:46:59 <Eric> Dave catch F&M yet?
08:47:11 <Betty> he did
08:47:44 <Betty> the last one was his :-)
08:48:01 <Betty> and yesterday a 3 b Grand
08:48:06 <Eric> Nice
08:48:35 <Kevin L> He got F&M, 2b Grand, and BH in a 2 h period!
08:49:01 <Eric> Wow
08:49:16 <Eric> Busy day...I see it went at a decent time during the day :-D
08:50:34 <Kevin L> The weather was not real good though, but I would be happy!
08:51:14 <Eric> Yes, catching F&M would be a thrill for me :-D
08:51:46 <Kevin L> Dave was pretty happy about it.
08:52:00 <Betty> :-)
08:59:33 <Jake> I'm not in the UGB. I'm at work in Salt Lake
08:59:56 <Jake> I was there on Saturday night/Sunday/Monday morning
08:59:57 <Betty> :-(
09:00:07 <Kevin L> Ugh. That is not nearly as fun.
09:00:19 <Jake> if I were there, I wouldn't be at BH right now ;)
09:01:03 <Kevin L> Good time to be at the Geyser Grill.
09:01:58 <Casey> Hey. I've been eaves dropping on here for a couple days. I haven't been to Yellowstone in 11 years, but I've been paying attention from a distance. I just figured I'd actually introduce myself.
09:02:39 <Kevin L> Nice to see you. This is a great window into the park.
09:03:17 <ynpvisitor80> well put, Kevin L
09:03:47 <Kevin L> In case you haven't discovered it yet Geyser Times is a great tool: http://www.geysertimes.org/index.php
09:04:59 <Jake> meh, that site needs work...2 stars ;)
09:05:54 <ynpvisitor22> 5 stars!
09:06:18 <Jake> out of 10
09:06:30 <Betty> priceless!
09:06:50 <Casey> Yeah. My brother told me about Geyser Times. He and my dad were actually there just before the 4th (unsuccessfully hoping to see F&M), so I followed Geyser Times pretty closely while they were there.
09:08:26 <Jake> too bad they missed it. nasty interval on that eruption
09:08:46 <Kevin L> Looks like it will be a bit slow here for a couple of hours but things will pick up in the afternoon.
09:09:12 <Jake> a bit slow??? Aurum is due!
09:10:03 <Kevin L> It does have me puzzled. Pushing 2 days without a report. I thought we may get more eruptions with all that rain.
09:10:22 <Kevin L> Dave said it looked happy yesterday.
09:11:46 <Biddle> BH is due, too (or at least should be)
09:12:32 <Kevin L> I would guess about 4h for BH.
09:12:33 <Casey> Yeah. We were actually there as a family in 2005 arriving the day after F&M's last eruption of that active phase. Apparently when my family shows you can feel safe exploring the rest of the park.
09:13:43 <ynpvisitor80> hopefully you can to break that streak
09:13:49 <Jake> there are many people who seem to suppress F&M eruptions so don't feel bad
09:15:24 <Casey> I'm just going to have to find a time to go out there and refuse to leave until I see F&M
09:15:50 <Kevin L> Daisy is also due
09:18:09 <Jake> that is a dangerous proposition, my friend
09:18:26 <Jake> you'll need a well-stocked logistical support team
09:18:58 <Eric> or good luck :-D
09:18:59 <Casey> You sound like you know from experience.
09:19:03 <Kevin L> I did that. Took 40 hours and was worth it!
09:21:16 <Casey> If you promised me it would be no more than 40 hours I'd take it in a heartbeat
09:21:53 <Biddle> might take a few months, just pray it isn't after an active phase
09:22:07 <Jake> I put in a lot of hours before I saw my first one. I didn't think it was all that amazing actually
09:22:28 <Jake> the second one I saw though was really amazing
09:22:41 <ynpvisitor22> you want it in daylight too!!!
09:23:01 <Biddle afk> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZimM-knXI8 id rather see this
09:23:26 <Casey> Interesting. Do you think it just wasn't a particularly impressive eruption, the visibility, or just all the build up of trying to see it for so long?
09:23:47 <ynpvisitor22> many geysers are like that Jake- depending on conditions, and also better as you get to know them
09:24:05 <Biddle afk> it finally stuck. bbl
09:24:21 <Casey> Yeah. I watched a youtube video yesterday (by Will?) of a Morning/Fountain dual. I was drooling.
09:25:18 <Biddle> ugh, don't have to leave after all
09:25:20 <Jake> I felt it was overhyped. The conditions were OK as I remember it. Sunny afternoon.
09:25:36 <Jake> I may have just been tired/in a poor mood
09:25:47 <Biddle> That last burst on the video i linked is just stunning
09:27:29 <ynpvisitor22> could be another 19 years for that one Biddle
09:28:02 <ynpvisitor22> I guess it's been 3 years now, so make it 16
09:28:07 <Casey> Let's hope when (not if) I finally catch F&M I'll have a better experience.
09:28:58 <Jake> I'm sure you will! the 2nd one I saw was stunning. and the 3rd was awesome
09:29:45 <Kevin L> I got an early morning eruption once that had hundred of 360 degree "rainbows".
09:30:11 <Jimbo Vanadium> As I've said before, if Giant gets active again, I'm flying out there and waiting for one. My job and marriage might suffer...
09:30:50 <Casey> Agreed on Giant
09:32:45 <Casey> I'm going to leave this window open and try to get some work done. Thanks for welcoming me. I'll try to be on here pretty regularly.
09:33:06 <Jimbo Vanadium> Back when I went to Yellowstone (1979 and 1993), there weren't videos of geyser activity. So it's nice to see the rarer ones going, but I wish I could see more in person.
09:33:12 <Kevin L> Sounds good. Enjoy work.
09:33:37 <Eric> Morning geyser got my daughter and me hooked on geysers :-D
09:34:21 <Jake> I talked to a woman at OF this weekend that was a volunteer at Norris for 10 years. On her first day there, she saw Steamboat erupt
09:34:40 <Biddle> lucky
09:35:01 <Biddle> someone needs to get video of a water phase
09:35:10 <Biddle> and post it to youtube
09:35:52 <Kevin L> I am hoping with all the phones with video, we will get it the next eruption.
09:35:55 <Jake> Micah saw a visitor's capture of the last one. Said they would upload it when they got home, nothing has shown up yet
09:35:58 <ynpvisitor22> hard to do unless you are within sprinting distance!
09:36:33 <Casey> So much for me ignoring this and getting work done. I know it's not rare at all, but the first major geyser (other than Old Faithful) I saw was Great Fountain at sunset. I've actually seen Giantess, but that first Great Fountain eruption was all it took.
09:37:09 <Kevin L> Not much can beat Great Fountain at sunset.
09:37:15 <Jake> Great Fountain hooks a lot of people
09:37:23 <Jake> especially with its bigger eruptions
09:38:04 <Jimbo Vanadium> There is a Steamboat water phase video; I viewed it. But not a start -- THAT would be cool.
09:39:19 <Casey> Do any gazers hang out in Norris?
09:39:31 <Biddle> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU4v_pmF27M 2:15 is water phase, but not very visible
09:40:27 <Biddle> https://www.google.com/search?q=steamboat+geyser+water+phase&safe=active&espv=2&biw=1920&bih=955&tbm=isch&imgil=_5d8cuDo0jSwOM%253A%253BrstadcJiAZ42QM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fgeology.com%25252Frecords%25252Ftallest-geyser.shtml&source=iu&pf=m&fir=_5d8cuDo0jSwOM%253A%252CrstadcJiAZ42QM%252C_&usg=__yp29QmB_B9vmUiIVBbLwH-zhP3Y%3D&ved=0ahUKEwjEqtPju-7NAhVW22MKHYX3A_kQyjcILQ&ei=EiuFV8TZBda2jwOF74_
09:40:33 <Biddle> i want to see that on video
09:41:29 <Jimbo Vanadium> I think getting a Steamboat start is like getting video from inside a tornado -- not easy to do, and would require a lot of dedication. And Steamboat isn't nearly as predictable as tornado formation.
09:41:42 <Casey> That and a full-sized Excelsior and i'll be happy. I don't ask for much.
09:41:52 <Jake> yes, Casey. Depends on what's active there to bring in more gazers. Activity changes much more frequently there than elsewhere
09:41:58 <Biddle> wb again, Betty. internet issues?
09:42:28 <Betty> hehe, no, suuden sleep attack. lol
09:42:37 <Betty> sudden that is
09:42:47 <ynpvisitor80> so Biddle what's your first GoToGeyser next time you visit?
09:42:59 <Jimbo Vanadium> A "wow" picture: http://www.yellowstonegate.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/steamboat-eruption-771x577.jpg
09:43:02 <Kevin L> I get those too Betty.
09:43:15 <Betty> LC
09:43:21 <Casey> Jimbo, woah!
09:43:46 <Biddle> I generally hang at grand. i can get to daisy and castle from there pretty quick and when BHI erupts it gives me enough time to see BH, too
09:44:45 <Kevin L> My days of getting anywhere quick are now over.
09:45:20 <Biddle> my knees still have hope :P
09:45:35 <Betty> :-p
09:45:45 <Betty> I can relate...
09:46:02 <Casey> When I caught Giantess I had just arrived at F&M only to turn around and run back to Geyser Hill.
09:46:12 <Kevin L> That 7700 foot air does me no good at all!
09:46:47 <Betty> alpine training
09:47:02 <Betty> helps for ski trips
09:47:12 <Casey> You're not kidding. I don't run that much at see level though.
09:47:19 <Casey> *sea-level
09:47:32 <Biddle> time for lunch. bbl
09:47:43 <Betty> enjoy
09:48:11 <Betty> hmm, time for late dinner if you ask me...
09:48:50 <Kevin L> Crown Burgers & Bratwurst!
09:49:21 <Betty> Crown burgers?
09:50:30 <Casey> Other than checking the predictions I have trouble identifying the geysers from the webcam perspective (other than OF, BH and Lionl). Any tricks to help me out, or do I just need to learn from experience?
09:50:37 <Kevin L> Only around Salt Lake Betty. Try one when you go through there. They are awessome. Blackberry shakes too!
09:51:07 <Betty> http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
09:51:11 <Betty> try this
09:51:18 <Kevin L> Try this: http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
09:51:28 <Kevin L> :)
09:51:32 <Betty> :-)
09:51:53 <Kevin L> We are on the same wavelength Betty!
09:52:03 <Betty> sure we are
09:52:45 <Casey> Thanks. That's great. I'm guessing Daisy is in those trees left of Castle?
09:52:54 <Casey> No. I see daisy now
09:53:03 <Casey> Wow. I didn't realize how much that path curves
09:53:38 <Kevin L> We should get a closeup of Daisy soon, I hope.
09:54:14 <Kevin L> That is where it is just behind the trees.
09:54:25 <Betty> Uncertain!!!
09:54:33 <Betty> go back!
09:54:38 <Betty> please
09:55:03 <kc (working)> cool
09:55:03 <Kevin L> I missed that.
09:55:08 <Casey> Got it.
09:55:10 <Betty> thanks:-)
09:55:26 <Casey> Are you operating the camera, Kevin?
09:55:31 <Kevin L> :) Glad we have your eyes!
09:55:45 <Kevin L> Yes
09:55:55 <Casey> Awesome. Thanks for doing that.
09:56:22 <Jimbo Vanadium> I went back and checked the geyser email list. The better Steamboat videos were posted to Facebook. They aren't available anymore. Someone should have downloaded them. The pictures in the email message are still there.
09:56:27 <Jake> cool Uncertain
09:57:17 <Betty> that was a nice Uncertain
09:57:35 <Kevin L> Been a while since I got one!
09:57:43 <Betty> :-)
09:57:48 <Jake> I'm off to lunch
09:58:01 <Betty> enjoy
09:58:25 <Betty> now we need Aurum
09:59:27 <Kevin L> Glad you caught that Betty. I was on the control window where I couldn't see it.
09:59:55 <Betty> thanks
10:00:56 <Kevin L> Daisy is taking its time today. Mostly just under 3h this week. Over 3h15m now.
10:01:25 <Betty> Maybe Dave is staring at it
10:03:32 <Kevin L> That could kill it.
10:07:54 <Kevin L> Dave was at lgb. Got the 1050 Fountain.
10:08:18 <Betty> ok
10:12:45 <Betty> Daisy
10:13:42 <Kevin L> I am lagging again
10:16:36 <Kevin L> Bet Dave is heading back for Grand & BH
10:17:07 <Betty> yeah, think so
10:21:23 <Betty> LC
10:26:57 <Betty> first Turban time, 1220 ie
10:27:51 <Kevin L> Jim must have just arrived.
10:38:05 <Kevin L> Grand may go now. We are in OF window.
10:46:26 <Betty> streaming is choppy on my side
10:46:59 <Kevin L> My side too.
10:48:45 <Betty> it´s better now that I blamed it
10:49:15 <Kevin L> Well the ads on my mail have gone from potty training to depends to jello now.
10:50:17 <Kevin L> I was getting one from a monument company for a headstone.
10:52:59 <Betty> ouch
10:53:51 <Betty> that´s very sensitive
10:53:59 <Kevin L> Got an email from Kmart that had items "picked just for you". One of them was a walker.
10:54:23 <Betty> haha, you sent me that mail
10:54:54 <Eric> Advertising is getting smarter :-P
10:55:01 <Kevin L> Makes you wonder how they get the demographics.
10:55:31 <Kevin L> Not sure how the potty training fits in unless they have refresher courses.
10:55:49 <Betty> hehe
10:56:27 <Kevin L> The jello does sound good now.
10:57:46 <Kevin L> I like to mix it with vanilla ice cream and then whip it with a mixer. Cherry vanilla is great.
11:27:26 <Kevin L> Looks like Turban is ie
11:34:39 <ynpvisitor10> LC ie
11:34:50 <Betty> yep
11:35:54 <ynpvisitor10> Hej Betty!
11:36:15 <Betty> hej David
11:36:55 <ynpvisitor10> haven't switched my name! wasn't planning on being here for too long!!
11:36:59 <Betty> any Sprinkler sightings
11:37:08 <Betty> ?
11:37:32 <ynpvisitor10> this morning, but it's hard to see without steam, and the pixellation...
11:37:35 <Betty> ie now
11:37:55 <ynpvisitor10> cool!
11:38:46 <ynpvisitor10> ah! i can see a few bursts, but...
11:40:15 <ynpvisitor10> well, enjoy the viewing. i'll be back later.
11:40:30 <Betty> later
11:49:07 <ynpvisitor81> Time for BH.
11:49:48 <Kevin L> Or Aurum!
11:50:07 <Kevin L> 30m from 2 days. Hoping we missed some.
11:50:26 <ynpvisitor81> Have you blinked?
11:51:04 <Kevin L> Even taken potty breaks. Nothing works!
11:51:41 <Casey> Is it common for BH to be predictable? I know the NPS doesn't predict it still, but I didn't realize it was regular at all.
11:52:22 <Kevin L> This is about the most predictable I have seen it in a LONG time.
11:53:03 <Kevin L> It will throw in longs and shorts but has been pretty consistent around 14 hours.
11:53:03 <Betty> I´m sure that changes when I head to the park :-p
11:53:26 <ynpvisitor81> Check Geysertimes and click on BH. You will get a list of intervals.
11:53:39 <Betty> I´m sure I get false indys
11:53:43 <Kevin L> We do have a text message service for Indicator (or other things like Giantess).
11:54:19 <Kevin L> Not quite sure how to log onto it, but someone here may know.
11:54:20 <Casey> How do you sign up for that?
11:54:57 <Betty> https://www.rainedout.net/team_page.php?a=bc3eeb1ac1ee14fb6c8b
11:55:10 <Betty> it´s here
11:55:51 <Casey> I'll take a look at that. Thanks.
11:56:00 <Betty> yw
11:56:15 <Kevin L> I don't know what you enter to get into the geyser part of it.
11:57:03 <Kevin L> One of our young gazers came up with it. Really is handy. Works with phones or email.
11:57:13 <Betty> this is the link for the Yellowstone notification
11:57:41 <Kevin L> Great Betty. I will savee this link.
11:57:57 <ynpvisitor81> Someone should start one for Anemone and Sprinkler.
11:58:27 <Eric> I was hoping for an LC one :-P
11:58:28 <Kevin L> That would keep your phone ringing!
12:01:58 <Biddle> I spend so much time fixing other peoples internet that i don't notice when my own goes down :P
12:02:07 <Betty> looked hot for a second
12:05:15 <Kevin L> Turban
12:08:21 <Betty> LC
12:10:36 <Kevin L> Grand will probably go next Turban during OF window.
12:17:51 <ynpvisitor81> Gosh, I did not get a LC text!
12:18:25 <Betty> bummer, missed to send one...
12:18:57 <ynpvisitor81> BH better get with it, Gunsmoke is a repeat of a repeat so lunch is short today.
12:19:27 <Betty> :-D
12:19:39 <Kevin L> I thought all Gunsmokes were repeats! I have Roy Rogers here.
12:20:04 <Betty> it´s been years since I saw the last Gunsmoke!
12:20:17 <ynpvisitor81> Yes, however they must be in second cycle and I saw it last year.
12:20:29 <Betty> aren´t they repeats, too, Kevin?
12:21:04 <ynpvisitor81> Only for Kevin. THe rest of us never saw them the first time.
12:21:09 <Kevin L> I think it is Betty. Same crooks every episode too.
12:21:13 <Betty> hahahaha
12:22:05 <Betty> time for Aurum to hide behind OF
12:22:09 <Kevin L> Yea!
12:22:32 <Kevin L> DaveM will still get it from the VEC static.
12:24:25 <Kevin L> I will have to dig out my Brisco County DVDs.
12:27:04 <Kevin L> Grand didn't go during OF! Aurum now over 2 days.
12:27:47 <Betty> yay Castle
12:27:47 <Biddle> it probably went over night
12:27:50 <Kevin L> Castle ie
12:34:19 <Kevin L> Big group by Plume.
12:34:55 <Biddle> they might be waiting a few years for it to erupt
12:41:34 <Betty> Daisy
12:41:55 <Kevin L> Wrong button!
12:42:47 <ynpvisitor81> I still think Daisy is awfully tall.
12:43:03 <ynpvisitor81> This year
12:43:10 <Kevin L> It does look good
12:43:37 <ynpvisitor81> Maybe a tree fell down
12:44:15 <ynpvisitor81> Or the Bulge, the ground rose up.
12:44:51 <Kevin L> LC
12:45:11 <Betty> yep
12:56:10 <ynpvisitor22> Grand or Beehive first?
12:57:02 <Kevin L> Toss a coin!
12:57:37 <ynpvisitor22> probably the same time?
12:59:27 <ynpvisitor81> Aurum when Grand goes.
13:03:44 <ynpvisitor82> Grand
13:04:31 <Betty> I´m lagged?
13:04:54 <Kevin L> Controls are lagged too.
13:05:05 <ynpvisitor81> I think that was an answer
13:05:19 <Betty> oh...I see
13:05:20 <Kevin L> OK.
13:12:18 <ynpvisitor36> Jim was so worried about being there in case Grand went under 6 hours....NOT!
13:12:30 <ynpvisitor82> Sprinkler ??? I can't tell with my screen.
13:14:51 <Kevin L> Dave said only one good pool in 9 Turbans. :P
13:16:14 <ynpvisitor36> wow, we were kidding about 13 Turbans today, hope they do not reach it
13:16:52 <Kevin L> It is geeting even with him for getting that 3b.
13:18:28 <ynpvisitor36> he skipped Grand for BH then was at lower Hams when BH finally went....Dave from B luck
13:19:20 <ynpvisitor36> he has had a great trip so far though
13:20:00 <Betty> LC
13:20:39 <David A pdx> you have a better screen than I do!
13:21:28 <David A pdx> Now I see it!
13:21:51 <David A pdx> and sprinkler? I see steam down there
13:21:51 <Betty> Grand
13:22:36 <Casey> Bingo
13:23:11 <David A pdx> sheesh! it just showed up on my computer...
13:23:21 <David A pdx> someone is closer to the satellite than I am.
13:24:17 <David A pdx> or Century Link's link is pretty slow
13:30:57 <Kevin L> 2nd
13:31:29 <ynpvisitor36> of course the spinning circle comes during the 2nd! Looked tall though
13:33:30 <ynpvisitor92> The second looks spectacular from bee
13:33:56 <Eric> I bet it does :-D

14:03:41 <Dave from BH> Thanks for coming out and getting it ready
14:04:07 <Eric> With the timing...any possiblity of 2 F&Ms on your trip Dave?
14:04:28 <Kevin L> Sounds fishy to me.
14:04:59 <Dave from BH> Maybe but leave at 1100 tomorrow. So not likely
14:05:48 <Dave from BH> Betty time to press the button
14:06:10 <Betty> möp
14:06:29 <Graham> BH before dark?
14:06:47 <Betty> BH next

14:10:46 <Betty> good chance to get another Lion ini, Dave
14:13:15 <Dave from BH> Not sure I'll be out here that long.
14:18:05 <Graham> did you get any snow yesterday Dave?
14:19:16 <Dave from BH> No
14:20:16 <Kevin L> I loved the snowman on Washburn south.
14:20:27 <Dave from BH> Getting windy
14:20:41 <Betty> we are seasick
14:21:10 <Kevin L> Or as someone put it treesick!
14:25:12 <Dave from BH> ..
14:25:14 <Betty> can you pull some water in that little hole, Dave?
14:26:12 <Dave from BH> Staring at it doesn't seem to be working
14:26:15 <ynpvisitor36> HA, Betty wants to go to sleep?
14:26:25 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
14:26:38 <Kevin L> Good Lion splashes.
14:27:08 <Betty> the night is short. only 5 hrs are left :-(
14:27:17 <Kevin L> You still have about 3 hours before yu have to get up for work Betty!
14:27:35 <Betty> no, 5
14:28:15 <ynpvisitor36> what time do you get up?
14:28:33 <Betty> half past 5 am
14:28:36 <Kevin L> And I know those trains are comfy and you can sleep on them!
14:29:04 <Betty> I would not call that sleep...
14:29:13 <Kevin L> :)
14:29:45 <Kevin L> I remember those long rides to Graf. :P
14:30:38 <Betty> yesterday someone had to fight wizzards and dragons and left the speakers on...I hate that
14:30:46 <Betty> LC
14:31:02 <Kevin L> Didn't have that problem when I was there!
14:31:04 <ynpvisitor36> you can get by on very little sleep I guess Betty
14:31:36 <Kevin L> I do admit the train beat riding in the back of a 5 ton truck! :p :P :P :P :P
14:31:52 <Betty> haha, it does
14:32:18 <Betty> I get my sleep on weekends
14:32:52 <Betty> though, our festival starts next week. 10 days of party
14:33:19 <Betty> and I have to work :-(
14:33:19 <Kevin L> Oh oh.
14:33:50 <Betty> means loud music till 2 am every day
14:33:56 <Kevin L> Send me a pretzel!
14:34:11 <ynpvisitor36> what festival now?
14:34:13 <Betty> at least a picture of it
14:34:37 <Betty> it is a small one in my hometown
14:35:25 <Kevin L> BTW my daughter found Haribo Primavera Erdberren in Cedar City!
14:35:27 <Betty> it is called Erbacher Wiesenmarkt.
14:36:12 <Betty> :-)
14:37:10 <Dave from BH> Going to sign off. Have a good evening everyone!
14:37:19 <Betty> 2 fireworks, Kevin
14:37:44 <Betty> enjoy the rest of the trip, and greets to Becca
14:37:48 <Kevin L> Bye Dave
14:38:02 <Kevin L> Sounds fun Betty.
14:50:30 <Kevin L> I thhink Dave broke BH
14:51:44 <Graham> 23 minutes above average is broken?
14:51:57 <Betty> well, enjoy the bug, I´m out. Night
14:52:09 <Kevin L> Night Betty
15:00:33 <Eric> Night Betty
15:07:49 <Kevin L> That looks good
15:08:54 <Kevin L> Coming to a Daisy & OF window
15:09:05 <Kevin L> Probably all 3 at once.
15:15:12 <ynpvisitor22> Rain is on the way, Indy the moment the rain hits. Those people in shorts will get cold.
15:16:07 <Kevin L> I would be cold in shorts without rain at 64 degrees.
15:17:00 <ynpvisitor22> You would be stylin in your shorts and long johns. The red Flannel kind I am sure.
15:17:27 <ynpvisitor22> And the flannel hat with the fur and ears on it.
15:17:43 <Kevin L> And a Packers logo!
15:18:22 <ynpvisitor22> Packer, i did not know you were a professional mover.
15:21:15 <ynpvisitor91> Another BH in the rain?(:(:(:
15:22:06 <ynpvisitor91> Water
15:22:40 <ynpvisitor28> :!:
15:22:41 <ynpvisitor28> :!:
15:23:05 <ynpvisitor22> Indy for sure
15:23:16 <ynpvisitor80> .
15:23:17 <ynpvisitor22> Thanks 91
15:23:19 <ynpvisitor80> .
15:23:36 <ynpvisitor22> Can Kevin text and drive?
15:23:42 <ynpvisitor80> yay
15:23:48 <Graham> yes he can
15:27:31 <Kevin L> At least the wind is in the right direction for a dual.
15:33:29 <Graham> i keep getting the spinning circle of death
15:33:52 <Kevin L> Bad lunch?
15:34:01 <ynpvisitor13> Maybe Dave will get one more tomorrow before he leaves
15:34:15 <ynpvisitor13> The circles are bad today
15:34:28 <ynpvisitor13> I watch on NPS site
15:34:45 <Eric> No circles here
15:34:51 <Graham> who is the runner?
15:35:00 <ynpvisitor22> My circle broke
15:35:07 <ynpvisitor22> yuk
15:35:10 <David A pdx> i've been getting them. and freeze ups
15:35:38 <ynpvisitor13> Eric, you live a charmed life
15:36:44 <Eric> Definitely not :-P
15:36:50 <Eric> Just no circles
15:37:06 <ynpvisitor13> Charmed chat life
15:37:13 <Eric> haha, maybe that :-D
15:37:21 <Biddle> feels too long... come on BH!
15:37:47 <Eric> we are only at 14 minutes for indy
15:37:58 <ynpvisitor13> Only 15 m so far
15:38:01 <Eric> soon biddle
15:38:21 <ynpvisitor22> I can hear all the people setting on the Benches. Why are all those people watching that little geyser when OF is about to go?
15:38:24 <ynpvisitor80> not quite enough for some people to get there!!
15:38:33 <ynpvisitor13> At least the rain looks farther away this evening
15:38:39 <ynpvisitor80> 20 is perfect
15:38:41 <ynpvisitor56> Feels like on average this summer the indys have been 15ish
15:39:13 <ynpvisitor13> Do no indy's count as zero minutes?
15:39:26 <Eric> Dual for sure
15:39:33 <ynpvisitor13> If so, average is less I bet
15:40:10 <ynpvisitor22> I think it is waiting for lion!
15:40:19 <Eric> I was averaging a while ago and I think it was about 17 minutes
15:40:32 <Eric> which would put it right now :-D
15:40:51 <ynpvisitor56> Should have said a majority of indys not average
15:40:54 <Graham> we are at 18
15:40:59 <ynpvisitor22> The charm is off Eric
15:41:10 <Graham> 19
15:41:10 <ynpvisitor13> Without no Indy 's factored in?
15:41:13 <Biddle> like i said, too long :P
15:41:15 <Eric> BH is just above average :-D
15:41:45 <ynpvisitor13> His charm is only for getting a good cam feed
15:42:04 <Eric> Actually, I have really good raw BH luck too
15:42:10 <Graham> 20
15:42:38 <ynpvisitor13> Maybe Lion will join in
15:43:08 <Graham> 21
15:43:19 <ynpvisitor47> !!!
15:43:20 <Eric> There we go
15:43:21 <ynpvisitor22> Lift off
15:43:21 <Eric> BH
15:43:40 <ynpvisitor22> Good start this time
15:43:45 <ynpvisitor13> Now I know it is coming up
15:44:32 <Biddle> :)
15:44:41 <Biddle> tall!
15:44:45 <ynpvisitor22> Poor Daisy, no one is watching for it
15:44:56 <ynpvisitor13> Nice and tall for Dave
15:45:06 <Kevin L> Very nice BH
15:45:21 <ynpvisitor22> He will have a sore neck all week.
15:45:29 <Biddle> ack! i forgot to hit the record button. :(]
15:45:42 <David A pdx> how many people waiting for OF realize how lucky there are!??
15:45:53 <ynpvisitor22> None
15:45:54 <David A pdx> I was going to ask if you had the record going...
15:45:58 <Graham> all of them
15:46:01 <Eric> none david
15:46:10 <ynpvisitor47> c'mon OF...
15:46:18 <ynpvisitor80> I bet they love it
15:46:30 <David A pdx> 'just another geyser going'...
15:46:54 <ynpvisitor22> There are other geysers?
15:47:14 <David A pdx> somewhere...
15:47:26 <Kevin L> They are complaining that OF is late.
15:47:27 <Biddle> ...over the rainbow
15:47:32 <David A pdx> there it is!
15:47:34 <ynpvisitor22> Iceland i think, that is too far to drive.
15:47:35 <David A pdx> wow
15:47:38 <ynpvisitor47> there we go
15:47:42 <Biddle> sorry David, i had to :P
15:47:48 <ynpvisitor22> Well enjoy Aurum
15:47:49 <Biddle> nice duel
15:48:24 <David A pdx> really nice against the dark background.
15:49:27 <ynpvisitor13> Dual, they are not fighting
15:49:41 <ynpvisitor47> nice
15:50:09 <David A pdx> time to get back to fixing dinner.
15:57:07 <Biddle> bbl
16:58:15 <ynpvisitor23> Weather turned to crap.
18:15:16 <Biddle> 'night
19:37:26 <Michael> Looks like Oblong.
19:41:01 <ynpvisitor90> Hard to get used to Winter Mode.
19:41:59 <ynpvisitor90> No Turban posts on GT, could it be a normal interval of Grand?
19:43:29 <Michael> Possible, though I didn't see a big puff at the start.
19:43:37 <ynpvisitor90> Or a Turban? Not sure how long the steam plumb was going big as I just joined.
19:46:20 <ynpvisitor90> My broke circle fixed itself.
19:49:34 <Michael> I think Turban is going now.
20:13:23 <Michael> Grand
20:14:23 <ynpvisitor81> :)
