05:39:22 <ynpvisitor999> yes
05:40:10 <747> Quite the video delay here
05:40:30 <ynpvisitor999> splashy Beehive
05:41:42 <747> Took 17 seconds till I saw the splash from 999's report
05:42:00 <ynpvisitor999> try reloading the page
05:43:15 <Jimbo Rhodium> A 19-hour Beehive interval? Seriously?
05:43:49 <ynpvisitor67> It's Bee, it does what it wants
05:44:17 <ynpvisitor67> Remember the year it broke?
05:44:47 <ynpvisitor999> which year was that?
05:45:04 <Dave from B> 3 or 4 years ago?
05:45:54 <ynpvisitor999> I wasn't watching geysers then
05:46:25 <ynpvisitor47> I seem to remember 1994 was a bad year
05:46:59 <ynpvisitor39> Nes splash
05:47:04 <ynpvisitor39> *new
05:48:07 <ynpvisitor999> maybe Beehive is transferring some energy to Giantess
05:50:02 <ynpvisitor101> Spring Fever Dave, 85 today, cold Saturday with chance of frost. It is headed your way! Last night they were saying possible snow, but that changed.
05:51:32 <Dave from B> 101, you can keep the frost!
05:52:12 <Dave from B> lowest temp in our 10 day forecast is a low one night of 47
05:52:38 <Dave from B> Temps next 4 days....78, 85, 87, 78 :):):):):)
05:53:01 <Dave from B> If you dfidn't notice that makes me very happy
05:53:36 <747> warm and dry at last!
05:53:47 <ynpvisitor101> You flat landers. What is the chalange in growin maters in a climate like that?
05:55:01 <ynpvisitor999> next 4 days for me: 55, 55, 68, 59...
05:57:09 <747> Yesterday was so nice I worked outside all day, darn near killed me, but, I'm going to do it again today
06:00:33 <ynpvisitor101> Today is so nice, I got up early, worked outside till it got hot, cam in and took a nap, got everythingon my list done.
06:01:07 <ynpvisitor101> Least that is my plan, now where is that paper and pen so I can make my list?
06:01:43 <747> 101 must be on east coast?
06:02:12 <Kevin L™> Toasty here today, supposed to be 98° Getting chores done in the morning now.
06:02:40 <ynpvisitor101> 98? Good day to go hunt snakes
06:02:57 <747> Kevin you always have good weather
06:03:00 <Kevin L™> I have one of those around here somewhere.
06:04:22 <747> If those people watching Bee would leave, it would erupt
06:05:24 <ynpvisitor101> They will not leave, looks like indy's indy is going. Dave says if that is so, BH any time in the next 90
06:06:03 <Dave from B> Hey, that was earlier in the week....who knows for today
06:06:37 <Dave from B> I definitely wouldn't leave GH
06:06:55 <ynpvisitor101> Come on swammy, you need to stick to your predictions.
06:07:49 <Dave from B> I predict BH should have erupted 3 hours ago
06:08:15 <ynpvisitor101> Well enjoy BH. I need to make my list so I have time for my nap later. Plus the watcher just left, so enjoy BH
06:08:27 <ynpvisitor101> Well maybe not
06:08:33 <747> They are leaving BH very soon
06:09:12 <747> Darn they are comming back
06:09:36 <ynpvisitor999> looks like they are heading to the Lion group
06:10:09 <ynpvisitor999> or maybe not
06:10:35 <Dave from B> Prob took a look at DEpression
06:11:58 <ynpvisitor999> splasing from BEe
06:12:14 <747> Bee any time now
06:12:35 <ynpvisitor999> more splashing
06:12:46 <ynpvisitor999> and no splashing
06:16:04 <747> The person walking back and forth is making me very tired :
06:16:20 <ynpvisitor603> Eric, ordered a SDR (Software Defined Radio) for the pi yesterday ;)
06:20:45 <ynpvisitor999> Anemone Big
06:21:24 <ynpvisitor999> and one of the Bubblers of Beehive started...
06:46:08 <ynpvisitor999> INDY!
06:46:10 <ynpvisitor999> .
06:46:11 <ynpvisitor999> .
06:46:12 <ynpvisitor999> .
06:46:13 <ynpvisitor999> .
06:46:14 <ynpvisitor999> .
06:46:54 <Dave from B> Sorry, for the double text
06:46:57 <Kevin L™> About time!
06:47:00 <ynpvisitor90> 2 Texts
06:47:03 <Eric> Morning
06:47:08 <Eric> Thanks for the txt
06:47:12 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
06:47:22 <ynpvisitor999> morning everyone who is here and joins soon
06:48:45 <Jake> I didn't receive either texts
06:48:48 <ynpvisitor999> we may get a Lion soon, too
06:48:57 <ynpvisitor999> LC ie
06:49:18 <Kevin L™> I got both texts.
06:49:28 <Jimbo Rhodium> Going to be a bright one (morning sunshine)
06:49:50 <ynpvisitor999> rainbow probability?
06:50:35 <Eric> If unicorns are in play...probability high.
06:51:01 <Kevin L™> Possible but a bit early for a really good one. They will have a great one by the Plume bench.
06:52:08 <Eric> Is steve the only one out there?
06:52:22 <ynpvisitor999> Great Fountain 0742ie
06:52:35 <Brian> that looks like Jim S.
06:52:45 <ynpvisitor12> look like Jim is there
06:53:00 <Eric> Steve called it on GT, so I assume he is close
06:53:43 <ynpvisitor12> I think that is Jim with red coat.
06:54:05 <lc> btw, morning everyone
06:54:10 <Eric> morning lc
06:54:20 <ynpvisitor999> morning lc and others
06:54:24 <lc> and Steve next to him
06:54:30 <Eric> Hi 9999999
06:56:58 <Eric> Such a nice day to be in the park...anyone here heading in soon?
06:58:08 <ynpvisitor603> Not till June 9th but we did go in February so shouldn't complain
06:59:12 <Eric> haha...nice Dave
06:59:21 <DavefromB(52)> Close enough to start counting?
06:59:28 <Eric> 6/9 is coming up sooon
06:59:35 <ynpvisitor90> Memorial which can't come soon enough for me.
06:59:46 <ynpvisitor999> Boom!
06:59:49 <Eric> evening sooner...nice
06:59:51 <Eric> BH
07:00:01 <lc> nice start
07:00:04 <Kevin L™> Powerful start
07:00:14 <Jimbo Rhodium> That looked like a rocket launch
07:00:28 <Eric> haha...I was thinking exactly the same thing jimbo
07:01:15 <Jimbo Rhodium> Wish there was a slow-mo replay
07:01:44 <ynpvisitor45> That is not BH, it is too tall
07:02:02 <ynpvisitor999> this IS Beehive
07:02:18 <Eric> A perfect Bee
07:02:40 <Jimbo Rhodium> Hey Eric, this is probably why we saw that cloud from MGB yesterday -- big steam
07:02:47 <ynpvisitor...> Not often we have no wind
07:03:04 <Eric> haha....bh showers...awesome
07:04:13 <ynpvisitor45> So no bubblers.
07:04:55 <Brian> that was a great start to my day - thanks for text!
07:06:03 <ynpvisitor999> the bubblers are waay smaller than Beehive (Beehive may reach 200 feet), the bubblers at max a few inches
07:06:23 <ynpvisitor999> and there were bubblers preceding this Beehive eruption
07:07:07 <ynpvisitor45> So Dave wins again, even though the bubblers were not logged.
07:07:17 <ynpvisitor45> Well back to work
07:10:01 <Eric> what module you get 999?
07:10:17 <Eric> SDR
07:11:48 <lc> bbl
07:13:00 <ynpvisitor603> RTL-SDR R820T2
07:13:56 <Eric> ohh, sorry...mant 603 :-P
07:14:03 <Eric> ment
07:14:13 <Eric> screw it :-P I can't type
07:15:39 <Eric> I was just looking at this one: http://www.nooelec.com/store/sdr/sdr-receivers/nesdr/nesdr-nano2-plus.html
07:19:19 <ynpvisitor603> Nice, I also grabbed a simple audio dongle in case I fail miserably at getting Icecast to work with the SDR
07:19:55 <ynpvisitor603> I already have some tuned antennas that should work without an adapter with the one I grabbeed
07:21:10 <DavefromB(52)> ok...what are we talking about in real English?:)
07:21:51 <Eric> family radio on a computer :-D
07:22:49 <Eric> nerdy fun :-P
07:25:15 <ynpvisitor603> Eric I might get that nano one if the Proof of Concept works
07:30:14 <DavefromB(52)> Eric, you familiar with the game OverWatch?
07:40:29 <DavefromB(52)> Lion 0940
07:40:34 <DavefromB(52)> ..
07:41:18 <Eric> Not sure if the nano is as powerful as the one you got 603
07:41:43 <Eric> Yes, I am familiar with overwatch dave.
07:42:15 <Eric> Wild stab...sons birthday gift?
07:42:23 <DavefromB(52)> That is my son's obsession. He plays on a team and he is now up to the 2nd highest level: Master
07:42:32 <Eric> Nice
07:42:55 <Eric> It's a pretty amazing game...I don't own it cause it would suck too many hours :-P
07:44:32 <ynpvisitor603> Eric check your email when you get a second
07:47:43 <Eric> Yes, those were my conclusions as well 603.
07:57:53 <DavefromB(52)> ERic, yes, my son plays more than a regular 40 hour work week
08:00:08 <Jake> what do people do with SDRs?
08:01:08 <Eric> use your computer to monitor or repeat radio transmissions
08:01:34 <Eric> Morning Jake and Betty
08:01:37 <Betty> morning all
08:01:51 <Betty> hi Eric
08:02:00 <Jake> I understand the implications for geyser gazing. I'm wondering what other fields it has use in. Police scanners that aren't encrypted?
08:02:24 <Jake> and good morning
08:02:36 <Eric> Yes, still tons of analog transmissions out there.
08:02:42 <Eric> from emergency services
08:02:49 <Betty> hi Jake
08:03:19 <Eric> These SDRs have pretty wide frequency range
08:03:48 <ynpvisitor603> Jake tons of use cases
08:03:49 <ynpvisitor603> http://www.rtl-sdr.com/
08:04:06 <ynpvisitor603> Friend of mine is using it to read Air Traffic Control
08:05:12 <Eric> I believe the guy in Dallas who set off all the tornado sirens used one of these too.
08:09:01 <ynpvisitor603> Well he had to have a transceiver too
08:10:19 <Eric> yep...but that is true for a lot of those use cases on rtl-sdr
08:10:26 <Kevin L™> My airplanes use a Raspberry Pi.
08:10:48 <Eric> You are into airplanes Kevin?
08:11:00 <Eric> Planes, Trains and automobiles?
08:11:02 <Betty> hi Kevin
08:11:47 <Eric> oh btw...before you get tired of hearing it...May the 4th be with you!
08:13:21 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty.
08:14:09 <Kevin L™> I have an ATC reader here. http://thebaldgeek.net:2277/virtualradar/desktop.html#
08:14:20 <Betty> Kevin is mad with engines, Eric :-)
08:14:36 <Kevin L™> The Las Vegas planes are read from an antenna on my house.
08:14:47 <Betty> LC ie
08:15:13 <Kevin L™> I like planes and trains better than cars.
08:20:59 <Kevin L™> OF pushing the window.
08:22:25 <Betty> OF
08:23:15 <Kevin L™> Barely inside the window.
08:45:14 <Eric> Setting up a new server here...might try my hand at youtube DVR thing again.
08:49:52 <Jake> do it. do it. do it.
08:51:11 <Eric> Gotta finish moving data first :-P
08:51:28 <Eric> takes a while to transfer the old servers TBs of data to the new one
09:01:12 <Jake> aintnoonegottimeforthat.jpg
09:03:11 <Kevin L™> Lion
09:05:18 <Eric> billw in basin...nice
09:06:02 <Eric> lots of gazers starting to arrive...look forward to tons of times showing up.
09:13:28 <ynpvisitor103> Was it Bill W or his brother who was recovering last year?
09:49:00 <Betty> OF ie
09:51:37 <Eric> daisy
09:51:49 <Eric> ie
10:08:45 <Betty> Aurum
10:08:46 <Betty> .
10:08:46 <Betty> .
10:08:47 <Betty> .
10:09:08 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
10:09:09 <Kevin L™> Good eyes
10:09:21 <Betty> :-)
10:09:47 <Kevin L™> Also a bit lagged.
10:09:55 <Betty> nice blueish steam at Giantess
10:10:21 <Kevin L™> That was a good Aurum too. OF kept away.
10:10:31 <Betty> yep
10:10:53 <ynpvisitor...> Pings and a 20 second delay. I got to see Aurum!!! Thanks Betty - Kent
10:11:19 <Betty> yw
10:14:01 <Betty> Lion
10:15:47 <Kevin L™> I have DaveFingers today.
10:19:16 <Betty> Grand!!!
10:19:23 <Betty> early
10:19:32 <DavefromB(52)> woohoo
10:19:46 <Betty> 1216
10:20:26 <DavefromB(52)> Xanterra site is working great today
10:20:50 <Kevin L™> Did you get rooms?
10:21:10 <DavefromB(52)> Yes, another set for same trip in June. Party may be expanding
10:22:02 <DavefromB(52)> 15 Grand intervals in a row under 7 hours (actually under 6:39)
10:22:39 <DavefromB(52)> 3 of last 7 have been under 6 hours!
10:22:40 <Kevin L™> What days?
10:22:50 <DavefromB(52)> June 26-July 1, 2018
10:24:14 <Kevin L™> I have some that will overlap a day but not sure if I will be using them.
10:24:59 <Kevin L™> Not much steam today.
10:25:35 <DavefromB(52)> Kevin, will you be in the park in 2017? Eclipse?
10:25:54 <Kevin L™> The week before.
10:27:39 <DavefromB(52)> We have rooms from Aug 17-21...not sure we will be there on 17th...maybe the 19th. We head straight to Portland after the eclipse
10:28:34 <Betty> I have rooms from Aug 17-22
10:30:28 <ge> Betty, I will be able to see you again this year. Family & I will be there after the eclipse.
10:30:49 <Kevin L™> I think I am the 15th to the 20th. Have a place about a mile away from the line of the total.
10:31:10 <ge> SteveO has already recorded this as a one burst
10:31:57 <ge> Kevin, we have reserved space at BYU @ Rexburg to view
10:33:16 <Kevin L™> I won't be far. My daughter lives about a mile from campus.
10:33:41 <Betty> nice, ge :-D
11:00:05 <ynpvisitor603> Has anyone tried running closed intervals from GT with big data and a neural net?
11:00:28 <ynpvisitor603> See if it could find a better predictive algorithm?
11:04:40 <DavefromB(52)> Kevin, it's official...we will be floating on the Snake River in Grand Teton NP on a guided trip during the eclipse
11:05:19 <DavefromB(52)> Only way we could think of to get away from the massive crowds expected along the path
11:06:54 <Eric> wow...awesome boat ride Dave :-D
11:07:04 <Eric> will it be in the path?
11:07:47 <DavefromB(52)> Yes...100% coverage for @minutes, I believe
11:07:50 <DavefromB(52)> 2*
11:08:29 <ge> :)
11:08:30 <Betty> cool, Dave
11:09:30 <DavefromB(52)> I'm really worried about getting from OF to Tetons on Eclipse day, however. Thinking of leaving OF at 0400 to avoid crowds
11:09:36 <Eric> Just looking at rivers in Oregon...was going to be at the coast for First eclipse viewing, but like the idea of floating down a river while it is happening
11:09:50 <Eric> The John Day is an awesome float and it travels right along the path
11:10:24 <DavefromB(52)> We've done the snake Sunrise. It was great. My wife and I were talking last night and the idea was born!
11:12:13 <Kevin L™> That does sound fun Dave.
11:12:14 <Eric> https://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/03/9a/0e/c2/horseshoe-bend.jpg
11:13:24 <Eric> woops...wrong horseshoe bend :-P This is the right one: http://l7.alamy.com/zooms/b7f7fc6baaf24a6cae23f629777adbc5/sarah-brownell-r-at-horseshoe-bend-in-the-john-day-river-near-condon-ewj3mf.jpg
11:13:47 <Eric> The other one was the colorado
11:14:19 <ynpvisitor603> Looks more like an Omega bend
11:14:28 <Kevin L™> I was going to say it looks like Moab.
11:15:04 <ge> Dave, have they inflated the cost of the float trip? Cost of hotel rooms anywhere near the ecplise are beyond outrageous
11:15:56 <ge> I booked a night in Pocatello for normal rates--$150. Hotel now wants over $800
11:16:18 <Kevin L™> I could not believe them in Rexburg. Glad I had a place to stay.
11:16:23 <Eric> btw 603, yes..I have looked into using Googles Big data neural network for processing geyser info. But I don't think you can just throw numbers at it and expect anything meaningful.
11:17:21 <Eric> I would be interested in combing precipitation, temperature and wind speed at time of eruptions and finding correlations...now that could possibly provide insight.
11:17:52 <Eric> Also eruption data on any other geysers in the group.
11:18:18 <DavefromB(52)> Nice pic, Eric
11:18:27 <Brian> barometric pressure and water level in the firehole
11:18:38 <DavefromB(52)> ge, float was $100 instead of $75 normal
11:18:52 <DavefromB(52)> That's not bad for that day
11:18:54 <Eric> I have actually wondered about firehole water temperature too brian.
11:19:02 <Eric> cheap Dave
11:19:23 <Eric> but did you find lodging :-P
11:19:32 <Brian> i was actually thinking about the level, i.e. flow rate...but temp could be interesting too
11:19:46 <DavefromB(52)> Lodging is at OF Lodge
11:20:06 <Eric> Yep, I just meant data about firehole, levels & temp could both have impacts on eruptions.
11:20:30 <Eric> barometric pressure would be another awesome piece of data
11:22:17 <Brian> Dave_from_B - I'm also planning on driving to Tetons from OF on eclipse day
11:22:19 <Eric> too bad NOAA doesn't collect much scientific data there....but I would be all behind anyone applying for a research permit to install a GOOD weather station at OF.
11:22:29 <Brian> but traffic fear is high...
11:22:49 <Betty> https://www.google.de/search?q=saarschleife&client=firefox-b&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjlv8f--tbTAhWEWhoKHb6SBR4Q_AUICygC&biw=1600&bih=767#imgrc=AlsIQjV4x8X5pM:
11:23:35 <Betty> or this one: https://www.google.de/search?q=moselschleife&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&imgil=8RHBwY9YeFfG3M%253A%253BPVyEgZJS0O76YM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fblog.andreasmang.de%25252F%25253Fp%2525253D1932&source=iu&pf=m&fir=8RHBwY9YeFfG3M%253A%252CPVyEgZJS0O76YM%252C_&usg=__Icu1YwwwGRnZSCv-CKkepbnLLlU%3D&biw=1600&bih=767&ved=0ahUKEwjNuquc-9bTAhUMB8AKHTXiB9cQyjcILQ&ei=lX8LWY2cLoyOgAa1xJ-4DQ#imgrc=
11:23:55 <Eric> Only in germany: http://baumwipfelpfade-eak.de/
11:24:06 <DavefromB(52)> Brian, what time are you planning on leaving OF?
11:24:46 <Brian> well, I had been pencilling-in 5am, but now you've got my paranoia increasing...
11:24:57 <DavefromB(52)> haha
11:25:56 <DavefromB(52)> Where are you planning to watch in the Tetons?
11:26:00 <Betty> I think it will end up with no sleep the night before...
11:26:40 <Brian> the "where to watch?" thing is interesting
11:27:01 <Brian> the sun will be high in the sky, so it's not like the tetons are going to be in the frame
11:27:01 <Eric> I will call you guys and let you know how it is :-P
11:27:03 <Eric> OF
11:27:18 <Eric> Nice one too
11:27:48 <Brian> and driving from OF does give a little strategic flexibility if it looks like clouds in teton will be an issue
11:28:25 <Kevin L™> Clouds would not dare!
11:29:46 <ynpvisitor36> July 11, 1991 hundreds of tourists were bussed to the statistically sunniest spot on the Big Island. They only saw clouds. It was clear at their hotels. Clouds ruin eclipse viewing, Watch the weather forecasts.
11:30:31 <Betty> SC
11:31:04 <Brian> the "trouble" with the eclipse path is that it goes exactly over the most crowded place in GTNP
11:32:07 <ge> That's why we are going to the other side of the Tetons
11:32:26 <Brian> it might be a goodr strategy to drive east on 26
11:32:28 <DavefromB(52)> Thanks, I have 24 hours to cancel the float so I will be watching the forecast.....that is fire season as well:(
11:32:47 <ge> Problem could be SLC traffic on I-15
11:32:56 <Eric> SC
11:33:47 <Eric> maybe 3 and done for Lion :-(
11:36:57 <Jake> if you want to try your hand a neural net or machine learning: http://geysertimes.org/archive/
11:37:30 <Brian> Just geeked-out a little with the eclipse map...
11:37:47 <Brian> colter bay get 1:50 of totality
11:38:03 <Brian> moose gets 2:30
11:38:40 <Brian> i'd obviously prefer max, but if i got stuck in traffic, it's not end of world
11:43:57 <Jake> I met a guy in the park a couple years ago who does machine learning. He did a preliminary run on Beehive and said it seemed amenable to finding insights
11:45:29 <DavefromB(52)> Very slight chance of 5 Grands today
11:45:52 <DavefromB(52)> Would probably need 2 more sub 6's
12:12:14 <DavefromB(52)> A BH during the eclipse would be fun
12:30:31 <Kevin L™> Here is your chance Eric: http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/Kato-N-126-0307-SP-Class-GS-4-4-8-4-SP-p/kat-1260307.htm
12:36:28 <ynpvisitor45> Sure, BH inthe dark
12:36:45 <ynpvisitor45> Speeking of BH, is it time?
12:37:12 <Kevin L™> I doubt it.
12:37:16 <DavefromB(52)> not close to BH time
12:37:35 <Kevin L™> Try again at 2am.
12:38:17 <ynpvisitor45> Well if you are going to be that way, I will leave people watching to you.
12:38:46 <Kevin L™> Had a 20h interval today.
12:39:33 <DavefromB(52)> Daisy should be any minute
12:40:04 <DavefromB(52)> Did you see Janet White's fountain post?
12:40:51 <Jake> Daisy
12:45:06 <ynpvisitor83> ie while flyo
12:45:15 <ynpvisitor83> ing over
12:52:33 <Eric> that is awesome Dave
12:52:53 <Eric> Janet fly from east side into West?
12:53:47 <Betty> headed out. Night all
12:53:56 <Eric> Night Betty
12:55:11 <Kevin L™> Bye
12:57:22 <DavefromB(52)> We need to ask Janet for a ride!
12:59:02 <Eric> Is janet a pilot too Dave?
13:00:06 <DavefromB(52)> I don't think so.
13:00:36 <DavefromB(52)> Hmmmm....helicopter ride on eclipse day.
13:03:07 <Eric> no thank you!
13:03:39 <Eric> helicopters are dangerous enough without variables like eclipses.
13:04:13 <Kevin L™> Helicopters are fun.
13:05:23 <Eric> I have crashed in a helicopter...pass
13:05:54 <Eric> So many American troops have been killed in helicopter accidents, it's insane
13:06:15 <Eric> They are a necessary evil....but not for me :-)
13:06:25 <Kevin L™> I was in an airmoble unit in the Army. Had some great rides.
13:07:22 <Kevin L™> We had more killed in jeeps than helicopters while I was there.
13:14:24 <Eric> vietnam Kevin?
13:15:04 <Kevin L™> No, Fort Hood, but the unit was 1st Cav and they were right out of Nam.
13:21:07 <Eric> ahhh, so you had some of the best helicopter pilots the military has ever seen!
13:21:30 <Eric> Those guys who survived there STILL have a rep of being incredible.
13:22:06 <Kevin L™> They were awesome. First flight with them was in a Kiowa. Did about 120mph and had tree limbs in the runners when we landed!
13:22:55 <Eric> don't doubt it....you would appreciate my cousins job...does extreme construction and they end up using retired Nam helicopter pilots often.
13:23:29 <Kevin L™> The life flight crews were unbelievable.
13:24:34 <Kevin L™> We used helicopters to string power lines when I worked at NDOT. It was fun to watch that process.
13:26:57 <Kevin L™> Well we were a day early. 100.8° at 1415.
13:27:06 <Eric> Here is one of his videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyA7JpRnlZA
13:27:20 <Eric> He tells me stories about the crazy stuff their pilots do
13:28:48 <Eric> This one is a great one of them placing a bridge on 1000ft cliff in hawaii :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ngmm14MHFvM
13:29:05 <Eric> no safety harnesses there!
13:34:11 <Kevin L™> That is pretty cool. One way to get a bridge there.
13:34:40 <Kevin L™> This is what we used. There are a few shots on the copter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LV-5duG_dL0
13:35:28 <Eric> Pretty much the only way when you got cliffs like that.
13:36:16 <Eric> He builds pig fences in hawaii too...they sleep on pallets on the ridges because the ground isn't flat enough to support a tent :-P
13:36:40 <Eric> steep drop off both sides.
13:37:49 <Kevin L™> I don't think I could do that work!
13:47:54 <DavefromB(52)> Looks like Tara is out and about today
13:47:59 <DavefromB(52)> Where is Basin Spring?
13:50:25 <ge> http://gosa.org/geyser.aspx?pGeyserNo=BASINSPRING
13:55:05 <Eric> That is in the myriad group, which is up near white behind the Inn
13:58:58 <DavefromB(52)> Thanks for looking ERic!
13:59:33 <DavefromB(52)> Time to finish the day in the market. Have a great evening everyone!
14:01:48 <Kevin L™> Bye Dave
14:04:02 <Kevin L™> Gee, up to 101.3° now
14:06:21 <Eric> Night Dave
14:06:29 <Eric> Cool seeing lodge work
14:21:20 <Kevin L™> This is what I was dealing with 29 years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KuGizBjDXo I lived about 2 miles away.
15:29:40 <Kevin L™> Aurum
15:29:43 <Kevin L™> ,
15:29:43 <Kevin L™> ,
15:29:44 <Kevin L™> ,
15:31:31 <Kevin L™> A 2 Aurum day for me! :)
15:38:42 <ynpvisitor47> Sorry about that Kevin. We had an intense Thunderstorm move through and I felt I should shutdown electronics until it passed. In the few minutes a took my computer down, I missed moving the camera to Aurum.
15:40:48 <Kevin L™> I can relate to that! I have dealt with some of those too!
15:41:13 <Kevin L™> It was still very clear.
15:45:08 <Kevin L™> I think you and I would have been the only ones to see it anyway! :)
15:45:40 <Eric> I might have :-D
15:45:56 <Eric> if you would have used periods instead of commas :-P
15:47:05 <Kevin L™> If you had been on a roof at 100° for the previous half hour you may have used commas!
16:01:01 <ynpvisitor106> 9 hours, time for BH.
16:01:11 <ynpvisitor106> No F&M reports?
16:01:53 <ynpvisitor106> GT is strangely silent on te subject
16:22:48 <Kevin L™> Missed Grand. Chickens are hapy though.
16:54:13 <kcmule> nobody here but us chickens
17:58:02 <Kevin L™> Cluck, cluck, cluck....
18:19:49 <Kevin L™> This hockey game is looking more like the WWF.
18:48:02 <ynpvisitor28> No 9 hour BH. Time for a 11.5 hour BH?
18:51:30 <Kevin L™> Worth a look.
19:01:40 <ynpvisitor28> Well 11 hours is over. Not going to wait for a 12 hour eruption. Good night.
19:02:46 <Kevin L™> Night
