04:58:55 <Biddle> *yawn*
04:59:12 <Biddle> 'morning David
04:59:19 <David A pdx> Are you having that much fun Biddle?!?!
04:59:34 <David A pdx> Morning!! nice steam plumes this a.m.!
04:59:46 <Biddle> No... Haven't got anything but aurum (?)
05:00:40 <David A pdx> still a good view!
05:00:49 <Biddle> Lion has been roaring
05:00:58 <David A pdx> Sprinkler is busy at the moment
05:01:26 <Biddle> I haven't even seen OF this morning!
05:01:35 <David A pdx> wow!
05:02:11 <David A pdx> i'll probably miss BH.
05:02:49 <Biddle> Time for Gran
05:02:51 <Biddle> d
05:03:04 <David A pdx> I helped 'bait' wildlife cam stations at Mt St Helens yesterday.
05:03:23 <Biddle> fun!
05:03:45 <David A pdx> smelly stuff
05:03:58 <David A pdx> beautiful day yesterday. ~12miles of hiking.
05:04:07 <Biddle> little bit like fishing, but less wet?
05:04:49 <David A pdx> we went thru a marsh to get to one of the stations! that twas wet!
05:05:50 <Dave from B> Sounds like a nice F&M last night
05:06:04 <David A pdx> Good Morning Dave!
05:06:12 <Dave from B> Good morning
05:06:26 <Biddle> 'morning Dave
05:14:29 <Biddle> Jake should add Sprinkler to the predictions page
05:15:33 <Biddle> Lion
05:15:36 <David A pdx> LOL. I think it would be too much work!!
05:18:41 <Biddle> major
05:19:29 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie!!
05:19:40 <Biddle> :)
05:19:52 <David A pdx> talking about the geyser!!
05:23:43 <Dave from B> Either this is a real long Lion series or it has had 2 initials already today
05:25:19 <David A pdx> wow, that's pretty unusual, right?
05:26:05 <Biddle> hmmm. 6 sieries? its possible.
05:31:48 <Dave from B> There have been many 5 or 6 in a series the past week
05:34:19 <Biddle> brb
05:34:51 <ynpvisitor84> Go North Goggles. :)
05:36:55 <Dave from B> haha, 84. I was thinking the same thing. It is due!
05:39:18 <ynpvisitor84> :)
05:40:10 <David A pdx> and, I know everyone is waiting with baited breath for the next Sprinkler in ~4 min!
05:41:51 <Biddle> back
05:44:39 <Biddle> Is N. Goggles connected to lion in any way?
05:44:49 <David A pdx> Sprinkler!!
05:45:25 <Biddle> these people at OF don't know what they are missing
05:45:46 <Biddle> they should all be crowded at liberty pool
05:46:32 <David A pdx> they should be!!
05:47:01 <David A pdx> for the most regular frequent action!
05:47:35 <Biddle> Except for sponge
05:49:08 <David A pdx> i sit corrected!!
05:50:28 <ynpvisitor84> David A pdx, you should get into Peanut Pool, it's closer to the BW
05:51:43 <Biddle afj> getting breakfast
05:52:13 <David A pdx> hhmmm.
05:54:34 <Dave from B> Daisy ie
05:58:09 <ynpvisitor10> There's that big plume next to Grand again
05:59:00 <David A pdx> so, what happened to Liberty Pool? It has a well defined runoff channel. was it ever a geyser?
05:59:03 <Jimbo Neon> I feel very bright today
05:59:22 <Jimbo Neon> (but maybe I'm just colorful)
06:00:31 <Jimbo Neon> I think that plume is Oblong - it was predicted for 0715
06:04:29 <David A pdx> OF
06:04:30 <ynpvisitor16> fluffy
06:10:10 <David A pdx> looks like I missed the start of Sprinkler
06:10:20 <David A pdx> busy editing photos from yesterday...
06:13:12 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
06:14:29 <Dave from B> Anyone seen water?
06:16:24 <Jimbo Neon> No, but I see birds
06:16:29 <Kevin L> Morning.
06:17:23 <Kevin L> I did see the F&M cloud last night.
06:18:09 <Dave from B> I'm glad there were lots of watchers
06:18:57 <Kevin L> Who was out there?
06:19:08 <David A pdx> I see Spasmodic erupting!!
06:25:45 <Dave from B> Tara, Ben H, Devin, Kitt, Will, Demitri
06:26:29 <Kevin L> Quite a crowd.
06:27:29 <ynpvisitor84> Sputs!
06:28:38 <Kevin L> The steam plume came up and I thought it was Grotto but it looked more to the right and was for sure left of Riverside. Tara posted it a bit later. No event cycles were posted all day.
06:30:30 <David A pdx> non-geyser photos of where I was yesterday: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ujelang/?
06:31:38 <Jimbo Neon> So Kevin L, what was it?
06:34:03 <Kevin L> F&M Jimbo.
06:43:24 <Biddle> Thats a nice looking cold spring, David
06:58:58 <Jake> Biddle, N Goggle is connected to Lion. Or at least it was the last time it was having eruptions
06:59:23 <Jake> longer Lion series of 12, 15, 20 eruptions would bring N Goggle into play
06:59:54 <ynpvisitor91> on reviewing the recording. There was no Aurum at 0655
07:00:50 <Jake> whether that means they're physically connected or reacting to the same changes in water/heat sources is unknown to me
07:04:10 <Dave from B> Thanks 91
07:04:16 <Dave from B> Good morning Jake
07:06:11 <ynpvisitor84> a long time ago I saw a NG between 3rd & 4th Lion
07:12:46 <GOVixen> mORNING
07:12:54 <GOVixen> Or, good morning
07:13:48 <Dave from B> Morning GV!
07:14:14 <GOVixen> I forgot why I came in here, hahaha
07:14:27 <kc (working)> 84 do u recall if it was having long series eruptions around that time?
07:14:27 <Dave from B> To talk about road work?:)
07:14:42 <GOVixen> Morning Dave from B and others
07:14:48 <Dave from B> I see they are finally removing some trees
07:15:22 <GOVixen> That works, DFB! I do have some observations for Kevin L if he is around
07:16:01 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
07:16:06 <Dave from B> He probably starts driving at 10 so bet he is in the chicken coop
07:16:18 <GOVixen> I had my doubts about this outfit at first, but the way they are doing things *May* be more efficient
07:16:40 <Biddle> deleted my Aurum. thought i saw something.
07:17:06 <GOVixen> Time will tell when we get into night closures and more delays as winter moves in on us
07:18:35 <GOVixen> Kevin L, didn't mean to wake you up
07:19:34 <Kevin L> I am just sitting here watching eliot Ness battle Frank Nitti.
07:20:32 <GOVixen> I was going south today but didn't get my ducks in a row to leave early enough so I am just doing some Vixen analysis instead
07:21:06 <GOVixen> THANKS for GeyserTimes Jake, it really helps me "see" what's happening
07:22:11 <GOVixen> I think the Westies will avoid the chip seal mess and stay home for a few days, you might not get many reports from the locals
07:23:02 <GOVixen> you lucked out on that one Dave, it was supposed to start Tuesday but was too cold and wet
07:23:47 <Dave from B> I saw all the signs covered.
07:24:19 <Dave from B> With construction and Midway traffic and Norris traffic, we may go in thru Cody over Labor Day. It took almost 2 hours to get to Mammoth when we left on Wed
07:24:43 <Dave from B> I need to see the lake anyway
07:25:08 <GOVixen> Work should be suspended on that weekend, but you may be driving on dirt, which is slower
07:27:22 <GOVixen> you could stop at Thumb too
07:28:40 <GOVixen> I was going to book it to F&M today, but I am actually glad for last night's interval
07:30:09 <Dave from B> I would need a trained tour at Thumb. Not sure where the geysers are there.
07:31:52 <GOVixen> you know where Lone Pine is? That's the one to watch for on a drive-by, empty, full or best is IE
07:32:51 <GOVixen> very very very scenic with the Lake as the backdrop
07:33:18 <Dave from B> I know it's along the road but that's all I know
07:33:31 <Dave from B> Can you park there?
07:33:54 <Jake> i's a nice spot, there's parking if you drop your car off the 6" shoulder
07:34:16 <Jake> it's in the middle of the long wooden fence section
07:34:33 <Jake> and Occasional geyser erupts often right there
07:34:42 <Jake> AND there's cell service
07:35:21 <Jake> and Alan Glennon once got yelled at by LE to get off the fence (he was sitting on one of the beams) and they told him to show them his hands
07:35:26 <GOVixen> Yeah Jake I have phoned Dispatch to report people wandering around out there.
07:36:11 <GOVixen> I typed that before I read yours about Alan! He was just sitting there?
07:36:39 <Jake> yes, he said they were pretty aggressive
07:36:40 <GOVixen> Maybe they had a bolo on his look-alike
07:37:10 <Jake> ah, could be. I thought maybe they thought he was smoking pot
07:37:16 <Jake> OF
07:37:59 <Dave from B> haha
07:38:30 <GOVixen> I had LE one time say "keep your hands out of your pack" when I was going to show them really really cool maps
07:39:10 <Jake> if it weren't for all the damn traffic driving by there, it would be an amazing spot to sit and ponder with the mountain views across the lake and geysers in the foreground, but the traffic is non-stop through there
07:40:02 <GOVixen> I imagine it's worse now, and a car parked along the road signals "must be something there" to those driving by
07:40:31 <Dave from B> Yeah, I stopped at Mugwuimp and 2 minutes later 3 other cars stopped
07:41:12 <GOVixen> be glad an elk wasn't in the background Dave- you would have been trapped for hours
07:41:22 <Biddle> I find it hard to believe that Lakeshore ever did this: https://www.nps.gov/features/yell/slidefile/thermalfeatures/geysers/westthumb/Images/11083.jpg
07:44:18 <Dave from B> Follow the flag
07:44:37 <Dave from B> Lots of tour groups in the basin this year compared to what I remeber from before
07:44:47 <GOVixen> just yesterday at Vixen I had a conversation with a visitor - yes- if the sign says "Geyser" it probably did something in the past even if it doesn't look active today
07:45:25 <GOVixen> She had a HUGE lightbulb when I told them Vixen was imminent
07:46:49 <GOVixen> so believe it, Biddle, or as the saying goes ... (fill in the blank)
07:48:24 <GOVixen> It Does That!
07:51:48 <GOVixen> well FB isn't going to cooperate for my posting a pic of Pinto, so I am outta here
07:52:55 <Dave from B> Enjoy your day, GV!
07:53:26 <GOVixen> Jake - is it my old age and faulty memory, or did "Retrieve" used to bring up intervals?
07:54:10 <Jake> it did not
07:55:06 <GOVixen> OK, thanks. I'll keep using 2 Tabs for my study-time. It's getting pretty big though n=1700 !
07:55:51 <Jake> if you choose "UTC Epoch" or "Both" for times under the Advanced Options, it's much easier to work with in a spreadsheet
07:55:52 <Biddle> bye GV
07:56:36 <Jake> UTC Epoch is a time representation in seconds, so you take (time 1 - time 2) / 60 to get the interval in minutes
07:57:13 <GOVixen> Thanks, I will explore that. I like seeing the Big Picture of this season's cyclic action
07:58:15 <GOVixen> Bye- off to get my mower fixed before fire season
07:58:50 <Jake> see ya
08:01:25 <kc (working)> 84 if you're still here, im curious to know if lion was having long series eruptions when u saw NG between #3 and #4
08:03:15 <Kevin L> Is there a law that mowers must never work?
08:03:57 <Dave from B> It must also include weed whackers
08:04:38 <Jake> this NG was after a Lion series of 7. It was also a "fluke" http://geysertimes.org/date.php?date=2011-09-15
08:05:48 <Jake> here's one after 15 Lion's http://geysertimes.org/date.php?date=2010-07-24
08:07:53 <Kevin L> Weed whackers are worse than mowers.
08:08:58 <ynpvisitor81> Goats are more reliable, but do have a downside.
08:10:14 <ynpvisitor92> You can't milk or eat a weed whacker though
08:10:14 <Biddle> Thats why i got a weedwhacker and mower from the same company - electric - using the same battery
08:10:40 <ynpvisitor82> Goats are as selective as a weed whacker.
08:11:18 <ynpvisitor82> Here for BH. Now that Dave left, it is due for a 13 hour interval.
08:11:39 <Dave from B> Be nice, 82!:)
08:11:43 <Kevin L> Weedwackers don't have to be fed when they are working and they don't poop in your yard.
08:11:59 <Kevin L> aren't
08:12:24 <ynpvisitor92> Weedwackers need to be fed gas or electricity and they don't fertilize your lawn for free ;)
08:12:31 <Dave from B> My wife got tired of waiting me to fix or gas weed whacker, so she bought an electric one
08:12:35 <Biddle> electric ones don't pollute either
08:13:45 <Jake> well, they don't pollute right there in your yard
08:13:56 <Jake> just back at the power plant
08:14:03 <Kevin L> Plastic grass doesn't need to be mowed or trimmed or watered.
08:14:26 <Biddle> http://goo.gl/qVxdlP I got this weedwhacker and the mower that uses the same battery, and i like it much better than goats. It also doesn't smell bad.
08:14:29 <Jake> Kevin, how popular is xeriscaping in LV?
08:15:57 <Kevin L> Pretty popular. Most people have some sort of desert type plants.
08:16:11 <Dave from B> And, it won't heat your hat either!
08:16:22 <Dave from B> eat*...ruined that joke
08:17:00 <Kevin L> The plastic grass looks very good now and is becoming popular. we had a case where someone installed it then did their fireworks on it and caught it on fire. Duh!
08:18:27 <Jake> I haven't seen modern plastic grass. I still think of it as flat and trashy
08:19:35 <Kevin L> It is surprisingly realistic now. My friend had some installed and it took me a few days to figure it out.
08:21:10 <Dave from B> On a slightly different subject, there are some concerns that the small rubber pellets used to make turf fields softer cause cancer.
08:21:15 <Kevin L> Here is a sample: http://lasvegasartificiallawns.reachlocal.net/photogallery/
08:21:29 <ynpvisitor81> When I lved in LV it was the women who had the fake plastic parts.
08:21:40 <Dave from B> :D
08:22:57 <Betty> morning all
08:23:07 <Biddle> morning
08:23:14 <Kevin L> They made fake octillo plants out of scrap rebar along I-15. I could not believe it when I saw them in the plans, but they look fine. You can tell it isn't real, but it is better than just rocks.
08:23:20 <Kevin L> Morning Betty.
08:23:32 <Kevin L> You are in time for BH.
08:27:16 <ynpvisitor81> Give that man a selfie stick.
08:27:32 <Dave from B> There is a weird "hole" in Lion data today. How long was cam off this morning?
08:34:02 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
08:34:09 <Eric> Morning Dave
08:34:21 <Eric> That is a strange gap between Lion ini and next eruption
08:34:48 <Eric> doesn't seem long enough for an extra eruption in between, but too long to not have one
08:34:53 <Betty> hi Dave and Eric
08:35:02 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:35:23 <Betty> got your baking soda
08:35:26 <Betty> ?
08:36:24 <Eric> We always have baking soda in the house...we use it to make chocolate chip cookies :-D
08:36:30 <Jake> does that missing Lion fall during the overnight webcam shutdown?
08:37:03 <Dave from B> Could have been 1 around 0250-300
08:37:17 <Eric> yes it would...but it's still a weird 2.75 hour interval
08:37:45 <Dave from B> I have seen a 90 minute interval after an intial this year
08:38:21 <Eric> well, and that second to third eruption was 75 minutes
08:39:01 <Eric> so there was definitely a missing one during the camera outage, but interesting how stretched the intervals were last night
08:40:24 <Eric> Camera was down from 1415 - 1447
08:42:07 <Jake> 0215 - 0247 ? ;)
08:42:21 <Eric> sorry...yes
08:42:38 <Jake> you're auto double re-unconverting times
08:42:55 <Eric> so used to converting them for the afternoon :-D
08:42:59 <Kevin L> Either that or 1415am
08:43:46 <Eric> 1415am -7 UTC
08:44:39 <ynpvisitor81> Geysers are not the Swiss Railroad. Strange things can happen.
08:45:39 <kc (working)> lookout
08:45:42 <Biddle> ummm...
08:45:43 <Betty> BH
08:45:44 <Biddle> BH
08:45:45 <Biddle> .
08:45:45 <Biddle> .
08:45:46 <Biddle> .
08:45:46 <Biddle> .
08:45:46 <ynpvisitor81> SEE
08:45:47 <Jake> Bee gonna go
08:45:48 <Art> No Indy?
08:45:56 <Betty> no
08:45:56 <Biddle> Wheres indy?
08:46:26 <Betty> will start soon
08:46:53 <Jake> Beehive's Indicator...indicates that Beehive is erupting ;)
08:46:57 <ynpvisitor81> West of Pittsburg.
08:46:58 <kc (working)> there's some height
08:47:28 <Betty> maybe driving with the Indycars :-)
08:47:50 <Biddle> there are 500 of them
08:47:55 <Biddle> in each car
08:48:40 <Eric> what what
08:48:58 <Eric> BH 8-)
08:49:00 <Biddle> no indy still....maybe we will get the first post-bee indy
08:49:07 <ynpvisitor82> Almost missed it. No indy, or it was and is gone?
08:49:15 <Eric> So BH becomes the indy for the indy?
08:49:17 <Biddle> no indy..
08:49:41 <ynpvisitor82> THanks, just missed that as i was typing
08:50:06 <ynpvisitor82> Dave broke indy!
08:50:28 <Biddle> Thats it, im cancelling my friend request to indy on FB
08:50:34 <Eric> Nice shower potential there
08:50:53 <Eric> almost 70 degrees too
08:51:13 <Art> I love that Beehive and Beehive's indicator are "In a relationship"
08:51:30 <Biddle> i think they broke up
08:51:43 <Biddle> indy didn't show
08:51:49 <Jake> "it's complicated"
08:52:08 <ynpvisitor81> Porkchop broke up.
08:52:36 <ynpvisitor82> Well it made 13 hours. i am happy
08:52:59 <Betty> my duty is done, I pushed the BH button. Got to go now. bbl
08:53:02 <ynpvisitor82> SOmeone being cruel and sending a no indy bh text?
08:53:39 <Kevin L> Bye Betty
08:53:56 <ynpvisitor82> etty forgot to push the Indy first button
08:53:56 <Biddle> bye Betty
08:54:00 <ynpvisitor82> Betty
08:54:49 <ynpvisitor82> I am out also, enjoy spit cone
08:55:59 <ynpvisitor81> I'm salivating just tjinking about it.
08:56:38 <Biddle> we might get indy still.....
09:08:41 <Eric> daisy
09:09:06 <Eric> No indy Daisy...
09:09:30 <Dave from B> I even saw the Close to Cone indicator once this trip
09:09:46 <Dave from B> It started well into BH eruption
09:09:48 <Eric> Nice
09:10:49 <Eric> Wife is talking labor day trip this year...so we might make it to the park yet :-D
09:11:20 <Dave from B> I Better bring an extra growler than!:D
09:11:38 <Eric> haha, if I come...I will bring a few too
09:12:29 <Jake> you can go drink them here: http://www.rcn.montana.edu/Features/Detail.aspx?id=6914
09:13:15 <Jake> whoa, Daisy was a no indy, too??? what is this world coming to?
09:13:55 <Eric> Exactly....however the OF pool is full and pointing toward imminent eruption!
09:14:09 <Dave from B> haha Jake
09:15:12 <Dave from B> Once there appeared to be a big preplay from OF that pushed it out of its window this past weekend
09:16:19 <ynpvisitor81> Windows are made to be broken.
09:20:14 <Biddle> so BH should erupt now?
09:20:29 <Dave from B> Lion interval from end of series to beginning of another have really varied lately. As long as 16 hours
09:56:09 <ynpvisitor84> .
10:02:49 <Dave from B> BH is the only field entry today
10:03:32 <Dave from B> I bet Jim took the day off with road construction
10:04:11 <ynpvisitor23> Is the entire park all chip seal roads?
10:04:50 <Dave from B> Yes
10:04:52 <ynpvisitor84> Udo, Barbara, probably others
10:11:15 <Eric> wow...no indy Castle!
10:19:00 <ynpvisitor84> if certain areas are closed for sealing that would be a shame for people on their 2 day trips to "see it all"
10:19:14 <Jake> an urban Grotto Fountain: http://www.ksby.com/story/32440623/car-crash-causes-fire-hydrant-geyser-in-arroyo-grande
10:24:52 <Eric> Nice geyser
10:25:26 <Eric> Hey jake, does GT push any notifications to IFTTT?
10:27:02 <Jake> no, but I'm open to it
10:27:15 <Jake> I don't know much about it
10:28:33 <Eric> I would like to create a javascript scroller that shows the X most current eruptions on GT and live updates based on push versus pull.
10:30:17 <Eric> Getting push notifications on eruptions via IFTTT, you could do all kinds of things and it would put no extra stress on GT, beyond making a single hook call to IFTTT when an eruption happened.
10:30:38 <Eric> Anyway...probably better discussion for a different place :-D
10:31:21 <Jake> you could put together a js widget based on existing API calls if you want something to do this afternoon
10:31:25 <Jake> all pull, no push
10:31:27 <Jake> bbl
10:32:52 <Eric> ya, I don't want to do pull. Just more trash load on the server.
10:35:28 <ynpvisitor51> Here for a 15 hour Indy.
11:31:27 <Kevin L> We were doing test holes once and hit a 16" water line Jake. It looked sort of like fountain. There was one line from North Las Vegas and one from the Valley Water District. The guy from North Vegas saw the water markings and thought someone had already done his line so he didn't mark it.
11:50:56 <Jake> Daisy ie
11:51:39 <Jake> probably was the start
11:53:30 <Kevin L> Another no indy Daisy
11:55:04 <Jake> I wasn't watching closely enough to see if it was no indy
11:56:02 <Jake> Kevin, they broke two water lines so it was double vented like Fountain Geyser?
12:00:44 <Kevin L> We only hit the unmarked water line. The marked one was 14' away and it was a 30" line so I am really glad we missed it!
12:02:12 <Kevin L> After that they don't use just a W and blue paint when they mark water here. They put the owner's name such as cnlv or lvvwd.
12:06:44 <Dave from B> GRand
12:06:46 <Dave from B> ..
12:07:55 <ynpvisitor28> Could Turban be considered as an indicator?
12:08:35 <Dave from B> Most definitely...but not as reliable as BHI
12:09:07 <ynpvisitor86> Waves on the pool. Turban would be a counter uindicator. If you see turban then no grand, unless you are not watching the pool.
12:09:40 <ynpvisitor86> A big buble in the pool is also a good sign.
12:10:57 <ynpvisitor86> Overflow at Riverside is an indicator.
12:11:08 <ynpvisitor28> Dave being there on the day he leaves the park could also be a counter indicator.
12:11:47 <Jake> Grand's indicator is the 50' splash
12:11:59 <ynpvisitor86> Betty leaving Thursday was an indicator.
12:12:10 <Dave from B> I need a long enough indicator so I can actually make it to the geyser
12:12:33 <Jake> oh
12:13:22 <ynpvisitor86> Hundreds of people standing on the boardwalk is an indicator.
12:13:23 <Dave from B> Waves on Grand doesn't really help unless you're headed to Grand...then you can turn around and go back to the cabin
12:13:26 <ynpvisitor28> They must have hit the tree.
12:14:15 <ynpvisitor86> Turbans are not a great indicator unless you have a bog book.
12:14:49 <ynpvisitor86> Not to mention Turban will go off after grand. So if you use those you need 3 big books.
12:19:21 <ynpvisitor86> Turban is a good indicator that you have time to go see something else.
12:19:34 <ynpvisitor86> at least close by if you walk slow.
12:57:42 <Biddle> stream down
12:57:58 <Biddle> and back up
13:33:59 <Dave from B> Have a great evening everyone!

15:36:32 <Graham> OF
15:48:31 <ynpvisitor84> Is there a weekend if you are RETIRED?
15:50:15 <Graham> i see BHI waited 28 minutes after i left last night, later than I expected

15:56:22 <Graham> yep, may not erupt at all today
15:56:31 <Graham> or did it erupt during BH today?
15:56:39 <ynpvisitor70> nope

16:44:10 <Betty> why is SC that interesting for the ravens?
16:44:18 <ynpvisitor84> Just booked a reservation for 4 nights at a hotel near you, Kevin
16:44:38 <ynpvisitor84> It is close to food that people have dropped on the bw near OF
16:45:25 <Kevin L> Hope it isn't for this week 84!
16:51:30 <ynpvisitor84> Nope, Sept 12
16:52:03 <ynpvisitor84> First vacation with just my wife in almost 2 years
16:52:37 <ynpvisitor84> Betty, when you headed to US?
16:52:41 <Betty> that is a week too late
16:52:57 <ynpvisitor84> That's right...you fly into Vegas
16:53:06 <Betty> I´m in LV from 4-6
16:53:12 <Betty> sept
16:53:13 <ynpvisitor84> I will see you over Labor Day, however
16:53:20 <ynpvisitor84> right?
16:53:26 <Betty> no
16:53:31 <ynpvisitor84> No typos tonight!
16:53:35 <ynpvisitor84> rats
16:53:39 <Kevin L> Sep is not bad here.
16:54:13 <ynpvisitor84> I hope you get F&M, Betty
16:55:23 <Betty> trip starts sept 4., in Yellowstone from 14-19, back to LV on sept 20-22
16:56:11 <Betty> would be great to see F&M, just like Dave
16:56:27 <ynpvisitor84> Dave = 84
16:56:33 <Betty> lol
16:57:00 <ynpvisitor84> 4 nites in Vegas plus airfare and free buffets every day for 574. Hard to resist that
16:57:16 <ynpvisitor84> plus shuttel to and from airport
16:57:17 <Betty> sounds good
16:57:23 <ynpvisitor84> oops..there's a typo
16:57:40 <ynpvisitor84> You'll love YNP in Sept
16:57:42 <Betty> german english
16:57:47 <Kevin L> What hotel?
16:57:58 <ynpvisitor84> Monte Carlo
16:58:22 <ynpvisitor84> We've stayed there many times. Close to the action without the expense of the upper hotels
16:58:39 <Kevin L> Good location for the Strip.
16:58:46 <Betty> this time we stay in TI
16:59:00 <ynpvisitor84> TI is nice. Also stsayed there
16:59:09 <Betty> MGM raised prices
16:59:42 <ynpvisitor84> All we like to do is walk, eat and go to comedy shows or cirque d soleil
16:59:55 <Betty> arrival date is Labour day weekend :-)
17:00:29 <Betty> yes, think of a cirque du soleil, too
17:00:37 <Betty> LC
17:00:53 <Kevin L> I avoid the Strip. Never been in the Monte Carlo. Only time in TI was to use the bathrooms while working on Spring Mtn Interchange. Figured facilities there were better than that little blue room.
17:01:28 <Betty> Anemone
17:01:31 <ynpvisitor84> Betty, have you seen "O"?
17:02:07 <Betty> I havet seen a show live yet, only on tv
17:03:00 <ynpvisitor84> I highly reccomend "O". I have seen it twice and thinking of going again
17:03:17 <Betty> wow
17:03:32 <Betty> O is in MGM, is it?
17:03:41 <ynpvisitor84> Ticket price is steep. I belive the Bellagio
17:04:44 <Kevin L> FYI the MGM started charging for parking now. Unheard of here. Hoping it does not become common.
17:04:56 <Betty> need to ask Thomas what he wants to see
17:05:11 <ynpvisitor84> Yeah. Resort fees are about $30/night
17:06:17 <Betty> we had to pay 20!!!$ once we were to the Hilton to see the Star Trek Experience.
17:06:58 <Kevin L> Getting close to a Daisy window.
17:07:25 <Betty> we did not know that they had cancelled the show weeks before, so it was for nothing!
17:09:28 <Betty> OF
17:10:09 <Betty> Daisy
17:10:22 <ynpvisitor84> Looks like a nice night in the basin
17:10:22 <Kevin L> On cue!

17:10:57 <Kevin L> :p

17:11:57 <ynpvisitor84> It has been a mild summer thus far. Highs in lo 80's
17:12:35 <Kevin L> Lows are in the 80's here
17:12:50 <Betty> we had no real summer yet. Even the strawberries weren´t good
17:13:11 <Betty> they got not enough sun
17:17:09 <Betty> time for sleep, have a good night
