04:44:13 <ynpvisitor999> hello everyone
04:44:42 <Joe Thermopolis> Good Afternoon DGInc
05:02:16 <Dave from B> Hello everyone
05:02:33 <Joe Thermopolis> HI Dave
05:02:35 <ynpvisitor999> morning Dave and morning/afternoon Betty
05:03:28 <Betty> Morning Dave, Joe and DGInc
05:03:39 <Dave from B> Hi Betty. How was Zion yesterday?
05:03:52 <Joe Thermopolis> Hi Betty
05:04:30 <Betty> no chance for the Narrows :-(
05:04:41 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
05:05:15 <Dave from B> too stormy?
05:05:35 <Betty> parking lot was full, we went to Bryce just to find the same
05:06:08 <Dave from B> lots outside Zion?
05:07:17 <Betty> the Virgin River was really muddy, so I bet the riverwalk was closed anyway
05:08:05 <Dave from B> Where you headed today?
05:08:30 <Betty> There were lots in Springdale, but our schedule did not allow to go back
05:11:38 <Dave from B> Going to Arches today?
05:11:39 <Betty> we had a room in Orem, and we go to Bonneville Speedway, and to the Golden Spike Ntl Monument. We head to Idaho Falls for the night
05:13:24 <Betty> time for breakfast. See ya
05:13:46 <ynpvisitor999> bye Betty
05:14:01 <Dave from B> Have fun
05:17:02 <ynpvisitor27> .
05:17:03 <ynpvisitor27> .
05:17:04 <ynpvisitor27> .
05:17:14 <ynpvisitor27> BHI 0716
05:17:20 <ynpvisitor999> yay!
05:17:52 <ynpvisitor27> somebody around who can send text?
05:18:03 <Joe Thermopolis> NIce
05:18:38 <Dave from B> just sent it
05:18:51 <Joe Thermopolis> Got it
05:19:31 <Ryan> Am I the only one with a jumpy cam?
05:20:11 <ynpvisitor999> morning/afternoon/evening/night Beehivers
05:20:17 <ynpvisitor112> Mine working good this morning.
05:20:23 <Dave from B> Hi Kitt, Ryan
05:20:42 <Kitt> Hello
05:20:42 <Dave from B> Mine is working fine. Ryan you watching from a cave?:)
05:21:10 <Ryan> Nope, just new computers at school. Who knows why its so jumpy. I am on Chrome if that helps
05:21:26 <Kitt> those were huge carts
05:21:38 <ynpvisitor105> OOH!
05:22:01 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder what they are doring with those carts
05:22:22 <ynpvisitor112> Crome does not seem to be chat's favorite browser.
05:22:48 <ynpvisitor61> what the heck? Those giant carts?
05:23:01 <Hemic> Right when I wake up and go here, beehive indicators went
05:23:22 <Hemic> Hi Eric
05:23:29 <ynpvisitor112> Quite often that is what film crews use to transport equipment.
05:23:37 <Ryan> I will try Firefox
05:23:46 <ynpvisitor999> Firefox works for me
05:23:54 <Kevin L™> That may be for movies. That looks like the thing they did the Imax movie with.
05:23:57 <ynpvisitor112> Firefox working for me
05:24:07 <ynpvisitor999> if it is a filmcrew, they are missing out on something
05:24:08 <Hemic> I use chrome
05:24:10 <Ryan-Firefox> WELL.... "FLASH: rtmpconnectfailure"
05:24:20 <Ryan-Firefox> Guess I am OK with a jumpy feed haha
05:24:23 <ynpvisitor61> yep. I see that now
05:24:48 <Hemic> They might not know a lot about beehive
05:24:55 <ynpvisitor999> could be
05:25:06 <Ryan> Or they could be going elsewhere for a shot.
05:25:16 <ynpvisitor112> They normally have a ranger escort.
05:25:16 <Hemic> true
05:25:42 <Hemic> But I would shoot Beehive because it's pretty rare
05:26:03 <Kitt> but a film crew requires and NPS person to be with them
05:26:04 <ynpvisitor112> Good to have Indy with us this morning.
05:26:14 <Hemic> Beehive splashing, starting the timer
05:26:39 <Art> I don't believe film crews require an NPS escort
05:27:04 <Art> At least the ones we've run into (filming Wolves in Lamar and filming Osprey at Inspiration Point)
05:27:16 <ynpvisitor112> The two I have seen this summer at Norris and the UGB have both had one.
05:27:16 <ynpvisitor999> they could be shooting Beehive from another angle
05:27:19 <Art> They had to have the required permits but didn't have escorts
05:27:21 <Kitt> Every time I have seen them they have had a person from Mammoth escorting them
05:27:34 <Hemic> I had to refresh the page because it wasn't streaming for me for a few seconds
05:27:49 <Art> The ones in Lamar were from NHK Japan and the ones at Canyon were from Nat Geo
05:28:07 <Art> So maybe different rules if the permit is in basin?
05:28:07 <ynpvisitor61> with that much equipment i would think they have someone with them
05:28:43 <Hemic> Mammoth Hot Springs is beautiful, I went there to see it in real life quality and it was amazing, trust me.
05:29:25 <Hemic> Eric,
05:30:49 <ynpvisitor112> Time for Fluffy
05:30:55 <Hemic> OF is predicted to erupt in 10 mins, maybe at the same time as Beehive
05:30:59 <Kitt> Rats, fluffy is also due
05:31:12 <Kevin L™> :P
05:31:13 <Kitt> Or now
05:31:15 <Hemic> Old faithful erupting early
05:31:24 <Kitt> Old Faithful
05:31:24 <Ryan> Nice, first OF I have seen in months
05:31:26 <Hemic> by 10 minutes
05:31:42 <Kevin L™> Hey Ryan! Been a while.
05:31:52 <Hemic> Hey kevin
05:32:00 <Kevin L™> HI
05:32:06 <Art> Love the lighting
05:32:09 <ynpvisitor112> It's is doing a good job on Beehive :(
05:32:16 <Kitt> It isn't early Hemic, there is a 20 minute window
05:32:17 <Kevin L™> Hope this is a short.
05:32:22 <ynpvisitor999> problem: we can't see Beehive. Solution: OF short
05:32:34 <Hemic> i thought is was a 10 minute window
05:32:47 <Kitt> 10 minutes either side
05:33:05 <ynpvisitor999> not to bad now
05:33:32 <ynpvisitor999> OF long
05:33:35 <Hemic> pretty long eruption
05:33:46 <ynpvisitor999> 160s now
05:33:52 <Hemic> im pretty sire
05:33:55 <Hemic> sure
05:34:16 <ynpvisitor999> a long is usually around 240s/4m
05:34:17 <Kevin L™> BH
05:34:20 <ynpvisitor27> BH
05:34:29 <Kitt> Beehive
05:34:40 <Kevin L™> Bad Fluffy
05:35:10 <Hemic> When I went to OF it was weird, it splashed up and down and not too high for a few minutes. But eventually it erupted.
05:35:27 <Hemic> still going
05:35:54 <Hemic> 280
05:36:11 <ynpvisitor112> An impressionist view of Beehive this morning.
05:36:18 <ynpvisitor999> that 'weird' splashing is just some pre-eruptive spouting
05:36:19 <Ryan> Very nice
05:36:22 <Dave from B> Hemic, that is called preplay when OF splashed before its eruption
05:36:23 <Hemic> Sorry caps lock
05:36:32 <Kitt> I bet they are getting awesome rainbows from Plume's corner
05:36:39 <Hemic> Thanks for telling me
05:37:04 <Ryan> I wish they put the cam in a tree by like.... Little Squirt :)
05:37:19 <Hemic> OF whent for about 290 seconds before it stopped
05:37:21 <Ryan> Or castle haha
05:37:22 <Hemic> went
05:37:29 <Hemic> Now thats a lot of force
05:37:40 <ynpvisitor999> couldn't see water after 254s
05:37:43 <Hemic> I see what they were talking about
05:37:57 <Hemic> it was really low and hard to see
05:39:00 <ynpvisitor999> and as far as I know an eruption is timed from the very first splash of OF to very last splash, don't think forced steam at the end it part of the eruption time
05:39:33 <Hemic> Wow my brightness on my Mac was low and now that I put it up it looks beautiful
05:39:58 <Hemic> Im pretty sure to YNPvisitor999
05:40:28 <Hemic> At first i thought they started when it is high XD.
05:40:33 <Dave from B> Timing of OF is water only
05:41:02 <Kitt> but preplay isn't the start of OF's eruption
05:41:19 <Hemic> Do you see that child, he was lucky to see OF and beehive erupt together
05:41:55 <Kitt> now Jim can go have breakfast
05:42:20 <Hemic> Eric
05:44:17 <Dave from B> Eric isn't here this morning. He must have forgot to log off last night
05:44:25 <Hemic> I will be at school when daisy erupts :(
05:44:39 <Hemic> I like daisy because it shoots at a angle
05:44:52 <Hemic> That makes more sense
05:45:21 <Hemic> I forgot to logoff after doing my homework
05:45:34 <Hemic> OF venting pretty good
05:45:36 <ynpvisitor999> If you like geysers that shoot at angles, you should go to Kamchatka in Russia. Almost all geysers there shoot at an angle
05:45:54 <Hemic> Thats far from me lol
05:46:10 <ynpvisitor999> I know, but just throwin' it out there
05:46:16 <Dave from B> Where do yo live, Hemic?
05:46:24 <Hemic> :)
05:46:49 <Hemic> I kinda don't wanna share personal info so lets just say... the US
05:47:16 <Dave from B> That's enough for me...thought you lived in Europe for a minute
05:47:33 <ynpvisitor999> Actually, Kamchatka had a webcam, but it's offline for years.
05:47:49 <Dave from B> We have a couple regulars here who live in Europe
05:47:56 <Hemic> all the geysers are like what I call "planted" on to a side of a volcano
05:48:05 <Hemic> Same as this one but not as angled
05:50:13 <Hemic> apparently it has the second most concentration of geysers
05:50:51 <Kevin L™> Sounds like Betty didn't have too much luck with the Utah parks yesterday. :(
05:51:47 <Dave from B> Kevin, that is correct. Sad for someone who travels from so far away
05:52:53 <Dave from B> Got your eleven cans of gas for your trip?
05:53:03 <Kevin L™> I saw some pictures they had on the overcrowding and it was jaw dropping.
05:53:29 <Kevin L™> No, but gas is going up by the minute there now. :p
05:54:06 <Hemic> :P
05:54:17 <Hemic> When are you gonna go :d
05:54:20 <Hemic> :D
05:55:44 <Hemic> Kevin when are you gonna go>
05:55:45 <Hemic> ?
05:56:11 <Kevin L™> I will be leaving home tonight and be in the park Thursday afternoon.
05:57:31 <Dave from B> Kevin, congrats to your American Legion team...Dodgers also winners
05:58:02 <Hemic> Nice
05:58:13 <Ryan> K - you going to the park?
05:58:43 <Kevin L™> That was fun! Basic was never known for sports and nice to see them a National Champion.
05:59:14 <Kevin L™> Tomorrow Ryan and then down to my daughter's place in Rexburg for the eclipse.
05:59:28 <Kevin L™> How was that Green River Shoot?
05:59:53 <Hemic> where i live im getting 60% eclipse
06:00:21 <Hemic> Kevin, what basin will you mostly try to be in?
06:00:44 <Kevin L™> Geyser Hill and at Grand.
06:01:00 <Hemic> I would too
06:01:29 <Hemic> I would first explore the rest of upper geyser basin because I haven't explored too much of it
06:01:35 <Ryan> Yay! Kevin!
06:01:52 <Ryan> We did not fly at Green River, Kevin, we flew in New Mexico and the team took first place this year.
06:01:59 <Hemic> I would too also stay a bit at Norris
06:02:23 <Kevin L™> I figured I wouldn't have a chance at another and with a free place to stay it was a no brainer.
06:02:49 <Kevin L™> Nice Ryan. I guess I am a year behind. Where in NM?
06:03:10 <Ryan> Spaceport America
06:03:51 <Ryan> I was not there. Bird hit 9,800ft though. We have a budget proposal this year for an O motor - 50lbs of propellant and like ~1100lbf of thrust. Sending her to 31kft next year
06:03:59 <Kevin L™> How much longer until you graduate?
06:04:03 <Ryan> May
06:04:26 <Hemic> ii
06:04:39 <Kevin L™> Wow. Seems like you just started! That new rocket sounds fun.
06:05:20 <Kevin L™> Any job prospects?
06:05:21 <Hemic> Ok guys bye I have to get ready for school and stuff I might be back
06:05:47 <ynpvisitor999> morning Jimbo
06:06:05 <Kevin L™> Hi & bye
06:06:45 <Kevin L™> Looks like gas in Rexburg has gone up 30 cents a gallon this week.
06:07:44 <Ryan> Not shocked. The totality path economies will get bumped a LOT
06:07:54 <Jimbo Nickel> Hi 999
06:08:11 <Jimbo Nickel> Nickel has it's own institute:
06:08:22 <Kevin L™> Still a buck and a half cheaper than I paid a few years ago.
06:08:28 <Betty> Hey Ryan!
06:08:49 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. Bummer about the Utah parks.
06:09:09 <Betty> where have you been all that time?
06:09:38 <Ryan> Hey Betty!
06:09:45 <Ryan>
06:09:52 <ynpvisitor999> Joe, that OF 0313 ns wc entry is a short, as the interval to the next eruption is only 56m
06:10:02 <Betty> hi Kevin, no problem at all for I did them all before
06:10:04 <Ryan> For those interested we managed to capture the glow worms at Neversink Pit in Alabama last week. Not sure thats been done before
06:10:37 <Betty> are you all packed yet?
06:11:46 <Kevin L™> Not totally. BTW they do the enactment with the steam engines at 1100 and 1315 MDT at Gold Spike.
06:13:12 <Betty> Good to know
06:13:37 <Kevin L™> When you go there it is strange. The road gets smaller as you go and then you do the left turn by Thikol and you wonder if you made a wrong turn. All of a sudden it will just appear.
06:14:02 <Kevin L™> You will probably think you took a wrong turn.
06:14:34 <ynpvisitor999> pre-eruptive steaming from SC
06:16:04 <Jimbo Nickel> Do you have pictures, Ryan?
06:16:09 <Ryan>
06:16:44 <Kevin L™> He was in a hole!
06:16:48 <Ryan> I will have more up. We only shot one that night because we had a 2hr window from 00:00 to about 02:15 and each photo took almost an hour to shoot.
06:16:55 <Ryan> I have more from the day time
06:17:44 <ynpvisitor999> nice photo
06:18:49 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum?
06:19:41 <ynpvisitor999> don't think so now actually. Seems to be steam from Giantess
06:20:01 <Betty> out to get the wheels on the road. Have a great day all
06:20:10 <ynpvisitor999> you too, Betty
06:20:27 <Ryan> Adios, Betty!
06:20:33 <Dave from B> Have fun Betty
06:20:40 <Dave from B> Keep your tank full
06:20:57 <Betty> 👍🏼
06:21:14 <Dave from B> Say hi to Thomas
06:22:35 <Kevin L™> Safe Trip.
06:22:41 <ynpvisitor999> SC
06:23:01 <Betty> Greetings back from Thomas
06:23:23 <Ryan> Betty you in the states?
06:24:45 <Dave from B> She's in the Beehive state
06:25:50 <Ryan> Nice!
06:26:32 <Dave from B> Kevin, Betty, Biddle, ge, myself all will be in the OF area at some point around the eclipse
06:26:53 <Ryan> I am both jealoud and not jealous
06:27:25 <Dave from B> I understand
06:28:09 <ynpvisitor999> on the overnight captures, someone waiting for OF had such a bright flashlight that the webcam switched to color mode from grayscale
06:28:20 <Kevin L™> Dave will see the eclipse for a parking lot in south Yellowstone.
06:28:46 <Kevin L™> I saw that DG. Remember about what time it was?
06:29:16 <ynpvisitor999> it was about half an hour before OF's 0313 eruption
06:29:38 <Dave from B> Have faith my friends
06:31:07 <ynpvisitor999> timestamp 8:11 or 0222, so about 50 minutes before the eruption
06:31:18 <Kevin L™> Both GT and Rexburg are showing clear and no chance of rain this morning for it.
06:32:40 <ynpvisitor999> webcam went to color @ 0306 or timestamp 9:17
06:33:38 <ynpvisitor999> webcam went back to grayscale @ 0317 or timestamp 9:33
06:37:23 <Dave from B> Ryan, my itiniary for elcipse day is jam packed and has many possibilities for failure. Stay tuned on FB for the adventure.
06:38:58 <Jimbo Nickel> Hey Ryan, great picture. I see the glowworms
06:39:41 <ynpvisitor999> morning Mike
06:40:37 <Mike J> Morning nines, morning all. and a happy five days until eclipse to everyone.
06:41:48 <ynpvisitor999> I'll be likely watching the eclipse from the webcam
06:42:14 <Dave from B> Morning Mike J
06:42:25 <Mike J> My planning came very late. So travelling to Kansas City, where I could actually find a room.
06:42:28 <Mike J> Morning Dave
06:42:39 <ynpvisitor97> I'm back :D
06:42:47 <ynpvisitor999> welcome back
06:42:56 <Mike J> Jealous of those of you who will be at the park
06:43:17 <ynpvisitor97> Im not going to the park.
06:43:39 <ynpvisitor999> well, it is likely I can't see the eclipse or just when the sun's setting here
06:44:20 <Joe Thermopolis> I will watch from somewhere between Thermopolis and Shoshoni
06:44:21 <Mike J> My wife and I plan on driving out somewhere in the Kansas or Missouri plains.
06:47:36 <ynpvisitor999> Dep ie?
06:47:51 <ynpvisitor999> yes it is
06:48:26 <ynpvisitor999> saw some vague splashes in the plume
06:49:04 <Jimbo Nickel> nice splash!
06:49:09 <ynpvisitor999> indeed
06:49:20 <Dave from B> There will be a LOT of people away from home next Monday...wonder if burglaries will be up
06:49:37 <Jimbo Nickel> it won't be dark long enough ;-)
06:49:43 <Dave from B> :D
06:50:31 <ynpvisitor999> is it me or is a big cart standing on the BW?
06:52:10 <Joe Thermopolis> I imagine Billings will be 0 population that day, everyone headed south.
06:53:13 <Jimbo Nickel> Northern Kansas predicted to have 15-20% more cloud cover than central Missouri (as of today)
06:53:22 <Joe Thermopolis> I think it is a photo shoot equipment cart
06:53:59 <Mike J> Jimbo, I've been watching that. I'm thnking we will be driving to the miccle off Missouri.
06:54:17 <Mike J> One of those "wake up in the morning and figure which way we're going to drive" situations.
06:54:54 <Jimbo Nickel> Yup, my plan. I'm flying to St. Louis. Right now southern Illinois looks pretty good.
06:56:02 <Dave from B> How many people will be sleeping along the road on Monday?
06:56:16 <Mike J> All of those who can't find rooms.
06:56:36 <ynpvisitor97> lol
06:57:25 <Mike J> Right after we made plans for our trip, I got an offer to speak in Dallas on Tuesday. So, right after the eclipse is over, we're driving from KC to Dallas.
06:57:54 <Mike J> So, I've got a room Monday. The bad news is that its 9 hours away
07:01:24 <Dave from B> Any of us who are traveling a long ways after the eclipse may have huge problems with gas..I'm going from GTNP to Boise or Eastern Oregon afterwards
07:02:09 <Kevin L™> This may help Dave:
07:02:12 <Mike J> I hadn't thought of that until I saw a similar discussion about it here about a week ago. Will definitely not let things get too low.
07:03:08 <Kevin L™> I plan on having enough to make it from Rexburg to Provo but I figure about Ogden I should be fine.
07:03:57 <Kevin L™> Also Mike, Bring cash. If you are in an outlying area internet may be bogged down and credit and debit cards may not clear.
07:04:15 <Mike J> Thanks Kevin. Hadn't thought of that one.
07:04:47 <Kevin L™> They also said to have some smaller bills. Merchants may run out of change.
07:05:14 <ynpvisitor115> It's Sunday night people need rooms.
07:05:41 <ynpvisitor115> The car sleepers will be out in force Sunday night
07:05:47 <Kevin L™> If they don't have them now, they aren't going to get one.
07:06:18 <ynpvisitor115> They are going to drive Sunday, sleep in cars, watch eclipse
07:06:34 <ynpvisitor115> Not waiting to drive the day of
07:07:19 <Kevin L™> They will drive back Monday which will be ugly. That is why I decided to leave early Tuesday before everyone gets up.
07:07:19 <Mike J> That's what surprised me about KC. Last week, they still had rooms at a Doubletree for $124 on Sunday night.
07:07:27 <Mike J> Not a hotbed of eclipse watching, but still....
07:07:37 <Mike J> It is right on the edge
07:07:52 <Kevin L™> That is a better price than a cabin at the park!
07:07:57 <ynpvisitor115> Big place though
07:08:30 <ynpvisitor115> The cloud forecast for ID and WY does not look good. Nebraska also bad
07:08:40 <Mike J> Ultimately, I've got a room, I've got a car, and I've got my official Bill Nye eclipse watching glasses
07:09:05 <ynpvisitor115> I hope the skies cooperate Mike
07:09:08 <ynpvisitor79> I heard a news report telling people to write down directions and phone #'s on a piece of paper since cell service may be overloaded
07:09:23 <ynpvisitor79> Imagine that - using a piece of paper!!
07:09:51 <ynpvisitor999> explosive OF start
07:09:52 <Casey> Even without signal a phone is a digital phonebook.
07:09:56 <ynpvisitor115> Hard to call 911 with paper!
07:10:05 <Mike J> 79, I have this antique item I found lying around. It's called a road map. I've heard stories of such things, but didn't know I'd ever actually see one
07:11:03 <Casey> The map is a different story. I have a road atlas and get a map at state welcome centers regularly (but I admit I rarely use them).
07:11:46 <ynpvisitor79> there is a whole generation of folks who only navigate via their gps /phone
07:11:51 <ynpvisitor999> if everything is set up correctly, 911 gets priority over all other cell phone traffic
07:12:15 <Mike J> I do a lot of road trips, and I found that, when I pay to much attention to Google maps, I miss the fun side trips. Paper maps are invaluable for the weird idiosyncracies that are out there
07:12:28 <ynpvisitor115> I am on a big delay today
07:12:38 <Kevin L™> Priority does no good if you can't get a signal.
07:12:48 <ynpvisitor79> the other day I heard a suggestion to eliminate cell service in YNP to cut down on the overcrowding. :)
07:13:21 <Kevin L™> They could tear up the roads too.
07:13:51 <Dave from B> I think overcrowding issues at YNP will force visitation numbers down. If people have bad experiences they won't come as often.
07:14:33 <ynpvisitor79> If it is a one-time bucket list trip, they don't know any different, sadly
07:18:35 <Kevin L™> This is the Zion info on crowding: file:///C:/Users/klean/Pictures/ZION_VUMP_PRE_ALTS_NEWSLETTER_SUMMER_2017_508%20(1).pdf
07:19:16 <Kevin L™> BTW our house is just past the tree on the right side in the picture on page 4.
07:20:49 <Kevin L™> Not sure that link is going to work. You can get there from here:
07:21:14 <Kevin L™> Or just google zion park planning. :p
07:21:39 <Dave from B> Kevin, when do you leave today?
07:22:14 <Kevin L™> After the wife gets off work. Cedar tonight and then to the park tomorrow.
07:22:59 <Kevin L™> Looking at the pictures I can see why UDOT took about 20' of our front yard.
07:23:43 <Dave from B> My wife and son returned from WA last night. It looks like Western Washington is a favorite of Parker's
07:24:40 <ynpvisitor13> is he a senior this year?
07:25:08 <Dave from B> Yes
07:25:36 <ynpvisitor79> where is that?
07:25:59 <Dave from B> Bellingham...about 90 minutes north of Seattle
07:26:20 <Dave from B> UW was too big. Didn't like UPS or Seattle U
07:27:24 <Kevin L™> Hope he likes rain.
07:28:49 <Dave from B> He never goes outside so he'll be fine
07:30:09 <Casey> Grand
07:31:01 <Dave from B> Yeah
07:33:20 <Jimbo Nickel> Grandiose - Casey has the stopwatch (though yesterday completely flummoxed the 8 minute rule)
07:35:20 <Casey> Sorry Jimbo. I've been off my game of late.
07:35:30 <Casey> 5m30s btw
07:36:02 <Jimbo Nickel> I'm watching
07:38:00 <Casey> 8m
07:39:00 <Casey> 9m
07:40:00 <Casey> 10m
07:40:20 <Jimbo Nickel> Dang, got distracted, thanks Casey
07:40:35 <Jimbo Nickel> Still going, probably a one-burst
07:41:00 <Casey> 11m
07:41:10 <Casey> They have been long single-burst eruptions of late
07:41:44 <Casey> Maybe stopped ~11m30s
07:42:02 <Casey> I'm not seeing spikes any more, but still a lot of steam
07:42:13 <Casey> And Daisy
07:42:40 <Jimbo Nickel> Nice segue
07:43:35 <ynpvisitor999> G1Q
07:43:59 <ynpvisitor999> 11m23s
07:44:44 <Casey> Nice. I'll take it for a webcam time
07:45:31 <Dave from B> One of these days we need a Grand eruption right after midnight....there would be a slight chance for 5 in a day
07:45:47 <Dave from B> Maybe Saturday when I'm there:)
07:46:07 <ynpvisitor999> but don't come near Beehive
07:46:24 <ynpvisitor999> nor Cascade
07:46:31 <Casey> Big artimesia cloud or something else?
07:46:45 <ynpvisitor999> Artemesia 0942ie
07:46:49 <ynpvisitor999> so could be
07:48:12 <Casey> More than I'm used to seeing from Artemisia. I'm half expecting a Grotto or Rocket major post shortly.
07:51:10 <ynpvisitor999> Castle in the next 90 minutes or so
07:52:17 <Dave from B> Castle 1047-1117 most likely
07:54:01 <ynpvisitor999> that's 1102 +- 15m according to Dave
08:03:49 <Eric> Morning
08:03:56 <ynpvisitor999> morning
08:04:07 <Casey> Hi Eric
08:04:09 <Kevin L™> Hi Eric
08:15:52 <Kevin L™> Rooseveldt Arch cam is updating.
08:16:56 <Casey> No Grotto or Rocket post. That must have all been Artemisia. I'm impressed.
08:44:08 <Eric> Surprised the whole UGB didn't erupt...I was in a meeting :-P
08:45:06 <Eric> Glad I am not trying to enter the park right now!
08:45:09 <ynpvisitor999> if you had put in chat that you were going to a meeting, then it might
08:54:34 <ynpvisitor55> tall eruption!
08:54:36 <ynpvisitor999> OF
08:54:44 <ynpvisitor55> or is the cam angle slightly different from normal?
08:55:31 <ynpvisitor999> I think this is its default position
08:56:20 <Casey> It's a different angle than most OF eruptions during the day. I'm guessing the camop moved it there so Castle when be in fram when it erupts
08:56:23 <Eric> Geysers know when I am in meetings...I don't have to tell them!
08:56:43 <ynpvisitor55> the top was way above the border of the image
08:57:00 <ynpvisitor55> well color me impressed, cam tricks or no cam tricks
08:57:43 <Casey> I think it looked pretty tall as well, independent of the camera angle.
09:10:40 <ynpvisitor24> So far no big eclipse news from Oregon. Rumors of stations running out of gas, however I think it was just someone not wanting to go to work. Stores were busy Tuesday, but no huge crowds and no empty shelves yet.
09:11:30 <ynpvisitor24> Road cams look normal. Who knows what the weather will be? I wish i could get paid to be wrong most of the time.
09:13:51 <ynpvisitor24> Biggest news, First Interstate did a terrible job preparing for the absorption of our bank. Online banking messed up for some, I think they double dipped my account and can not prove it as all the old records are gone. Waiting for the final statement to see what it may say. Long lines at the bank with people having problems. Only saw e person making a business deposit and it took forever to do
09:14:33 <Kevin L™> Ugh. :p
09:14:36 <ynpvisitor24> one person. rest were having trouble.
09:14:39 <ynpvisitor999> that sucks
09:15:23 <ynpvisitor999> by the way, I've found an OFVCL log of 1992 with times that aren't present in GT. Is it worth entering those?
09:16:03 <ynpvisitor24> I am not one of the 1% that likes change. When the change is difficult, it does. I feel bad for there old customers that may have trouble with online banking.
09:17:05 <ynpvisitor24> Even the tellers computers were slow. And the system they use is way more complicated and hard to navigate then it needs to be. IT guys dropped the ball for sure.
09:17:41 <ynpvisitor24> 999, if the data is good. More is better.
09:18:33 <ynpvisitor24> Just think if all those notebooks people have been keeping were entered?
09:19:04 <ynpvisitor999> we'd definitely be over 1,000,000 eruption entries already
09:19:08 <Dave from B> DG, I would enter it if you have time
09:19:26 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:19:48 <ynpvisitor999> I still have about 1.5 weeks of summer holiday, after which school starts again
09:19:51 <Dave from B> Hi keep your eclipse plans or are you headed somewhere else?
09:20:33 <Eric> I am going to be in willamette valley for the eclipse and then heading to canada, so I think I am going to miss you on this trip :-(
09:21:16 <Dave from B> Dang...sorry to hear that
09:21:20 <Eric> I hope all your plans go smoothly.
09:21:40 <Dave from B> So, any breweries with good hefeweizens in Oregon I need to try
09:22:55 <ynpvisitor24> A few.
09:24:37 <ynpvisitor24> I am not a pub follower. Best for the price is Pyramid, have only seen it in 22 oz bottles, about 2.50 or less.
09:24:45 <ynpvisitor999> Castl
09:24:47 <ynpvisitor999> e
09:25:15 <ynpvisitor999> based on the Gizmo entries, someone should be around
09:27:03 <ynpvisitor24> It is ahrd to get anything but a dang IPA on tap, or some stupid fruit beer or creation of the month. A good porter, stout, or wheat is difficult. Irish or Scottish anything is rear as hens teeth.
09:27:39 <ynpvisitor24> rare
09:28:30 <ynpvisitor24> Can not remember the name, but there is a decent pub in Pendleton.
09:33:53 <Dave from B> Thanks 24..we may be in Pendleton Monday night
09:35:43 <Eric> Dave, the hefe has kinda gotten trashed to the wayside by local breweries to make room for other styles.
09:36:17 <Dave from B> Sounds like me
09:36:21 <Eric> However, Portland does have a pretty nice new German pub:
09:36:47 <Eric> Widmer is a pretty classic hefe and their taproom is nice in downtown.
09:37:43 <Dave from B> I do like Widmer
09:37:56 <ynpvisitor24> Good Mexican food down by the rodeo grounds. Good expensive place down town, not Hamily's, it is cool, but the food was not what I would have expected.
09:38:50 <ynpvisitor24> Pyramid heff will swim circles around Widmer.
09:40:39 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
09:40:41 <ynpvisitor24> I am surprised more places do not have a hefe. Quick turn around on the equipment, and can be done with out sacrificing the taste. One reason why they do not like stouts. Takes to long to age.
09:41:19 <ynpvisitor24> Speaking of lions, I wounder if te found the cat?
09:41:21 <Eric> While the beer and food are gotta go checkout:
09:41:49 <Kevin L™> West gate is clear already
09:41:55 <Eric> It's a nice place to chill out and have a meal and some drinks, especially on a nice evening...good outdoor seating
09:42:22 <Eric> stouts don't take very long...they are an ale :-)
09:42:32 <ynpvisitor999> Castle major
09:42:41 <ynpvisitor24> IPA is also an ale.
09:43:00 <Eric> It's the lagers that breweries don't like...they have much longer lagering times.
09:43:15 <Eric> Yep, IPAs and Stouts are fast to make
09:43:36 <Eric> Stouts just use more black malts
09:43:42 <Dave from B> Eric, I'm all about eating outside. Thanks for the suggestion.
09:43:42 <ynpvisitor24> McMenamins food only OK?
09:44:12 <Eric> I would never recommend them for their food and beer, but the ambiance is always great!
09:44:18 <ynpvisitor999> next Lion, if series continues, 1300 +- 10m
09:44:33 <Eric> and the food and beer is par or better usually
09:45:05 <ynpvisitor24> Wow, you must have better places in Portland then Bend.
09:46:50 <Dave from B> Eric, before the college soccer game on Friday night UP has an event that is full of Portland foodtrucks. Do you have any faves?
09:47:51 <ynpvisitor24> Greenway Pub turned me into a beer snob. Wilber Burgers were my thing. It was great untill the food inspector made them put the Guiness in the cooler.
09:49:11 <Eric> There are hundreds of foodtrucks in Portland....I think Yelp will be your friend on that recommendation :-)
09:50:46 <Eric> Also, Edgefield Mcmenamins is on the way out to the columbia river gorge....stop by on the way back home and explore it :-)
09:51:06 <Eric> Nice Tall Castle
09:53:45 <ynpvisitor24> Well got to go, enjoy people watching.
10:01:13 <Dave from B> Thanks, Eric. I hope we get to the Gorge. Lot more college events than Taylor had. At least we are going to the beach!
10:17:16 <ynpvisitor110> I went to Portland and the Gorge last month. good time.
10:17:31 <ynpvisitor110> top of multnomah falls was quite the view.
10:18:27 <ynpvisitor110> Alder Street food carts were a multitude of choices.
10:19:19 <Dave from B> Gorge is a lot of fun
10:20:11 <Kevin L™> Aurum during BH this morning. :P
10:31:22 <Kevin L™> Daisy
10:40:28 <ynpvisitor999> 1st of January 1992 done
10:43:43 <Dave from B> Nice
10:48:29 <ynpvisitor999> point is, though, it took me about an hour to do one day
10:51:44 <ynpvisitor999> looks like we've missed an OF
10:54:01 <Kevin L™> Looked like it was ending when I walked in and saw Daisy start.
10:58:09 <ynpvisitor33> Lion doing something
10:58:21 <Casey> Yes it is
10:58:24 <ynpvisitor33> How was the prediction?
10:58:31 <ynpvisitor999> 1300 +- 10m
10:58:52 <ynpvisitor999> if series continues, that was
10:59:40 <ynpvisitor33> Dave, to admit a mistake, the bank did not double dip. I just lost track of how much I spent. Camping is expensive.
11:00:56 <ynpvisitor999> LC
11:01:01 <ynpvisitor33> Bombers are flying someplace. Hope that is a good thing, and not a blow up before the hoards hit the road.
11:01:15 <ynpvisitor33> Must be extra from Lion?
11:04:14 <ynpvisitor999> I put in an A eruption time of 1227, bsed on NPS' prediction of 98m +- 10m
11:04:24 <ynpvisitor999> for OF, that is
11:18:08 <Dave from B> 999, data entry is very time consuming.
11:18:24 <ynpvisitor999> I know that by now :)
11:18:57 <ynpvisitor999> the Old Faithful interval graph I posted a few days/weeks ago is still not finished
11:19:51 <Kevin L™> Shouldn't be a whole lot to enter late Fed to April.
11:20:04 <ynpvisitor999> part of me is wondering if I should make another account just for this type of data entering
11:20:35 <Jake> what data are you entering, DG?
11:20:44 <ynpvisitor999> OFVCL-EV 1992
11:21:23 <ynpvisitor999> and maybe for the ones following that year if they haven't been entered already
11:27:13 <Jake> I'm curious as to what day we'll get the "F&M did not erupt overnight" notes in GT. today is Day 4
11:27:32 <ynpvisitor999> I think from day 5 or 6 onward
11:27:40 <Dave from B> Either tonight or tomorrow
11:28:03 <Kevin L™> Monday morning while Dave is parking.
11:28:57 <Dave from B> I'll send you pictures from the raft
11:29:32 <Kevin L™> Probably that one at Disneyland.
11:30:30 <Kevin L™> Where are you supposed to pick up that raft Dave?
11:31:32 <Dave from B> :D
11:31:46 <Dave from B> Just south of Moran Junction
11:33:16 <Kevin L™> You know about the downtown bypass in Jackson?
11:38:13 <Dave from B> no, I don't
11:39:15 <Dave from B> You feeding me a line?
11:40:22 <Kevin L™> US 191 turn right on McGill, left of Jackson back to US 191. An old local told me about that.
11:41:25 <Kevin L™> Excuse me Gill Street (Thinking of a Nevada train location.)
11:41:29 <Dave from B> I think I know where you mean...let me google it
11:41:53 <Kevin L™> Not marked but cut a lot of time last time I was there.
11:42:42 <Dave from B> Got it. Thanks
11:56:04 <Jake> I'll bet Google Maps has sent a lot of traffic that way as it's become more popular
11:57:20 <Jake> I went to someone's house along the Wasatch Front in a newer community. Google sent me through some neighborhood streets to save 2 minutes. First sign when turning on that street? A fresh "No Thru Traffic"
11:58:04 <Jake> sorry, that ship has sailed, shoulda made the roads more twisty through the neighborhood instead of a near-perfect diagonal cutoff
11:58:22 <Casey> We are over 16000 seconds since Grand started erupting. Is it time for me to stop that timer?
11:58:35 <Jake> OF
11:58:36 <Casey> P.S. - OF
11:59:17 <ynpvisitor999> you can stop the timer whenever you want :)
11:59:29 <Jake> if you stop the timer, think of the valuable information that will be lost forever
11:59:49 <Casey> I just stopped it at 16,165 seconds. Sorry Jake. It's all lost.
11:59:49 <Kevin L™> My Daughter just sent me a picture of a food store in Rexburg. Not much on the shelves.
12:00:24 <ynpvisitor999> at least we now know that the timer can go this long
12:01:02 <Casey> We also know how long I can be distracted by "work"
12:01:40 <Dave from B> Kevin, that shocks me
12:02:58 <Casey> Good/bad news: I may have a career change soon that would actually require that I work from an office. The increase in pay should make it more reasonable for me to travel that way though.
12:05:12 <Kevin L™> I got a decrease in pay but really nice hours.
12:06:02 <Kevin L™> I am guessing that is the locals gathering up supplies Dave. One thing a Mormon knows how to do is store food!
12:06:43 <Dave from B> Yes...I thought that was just a rumoured activity of LDS
12:07:03 <ynpvisitor999> Lion prepping
12:08:20 <Jake> need 5 gallon buckets or even 55 gallon drums of wheat, oats or flour? come with me to some Utah estate sales!
12:08:36 <Dave from B> hahaha
12:09:27 <Dave from B> If you need a gas can in Yellowstone County MT, there aren't any left. You'll have to buy them from me at 3 times the cost!:)
12:12:14 <Jake> whatever the market will bear
12:14:19 <Jake> office work ain't all bad, Casey. depends on the office though
12:15:39 <Kevin L™> I imagine that wheat is of a vintage year Jake.
12:18:12 <Casey> It seems like a pretty good office to work at. Far from the stereotypical cubicle farm. I'll miss working from home, and I"m not sure I could convince the new boss that this webcam deserves a permanent place on one of my monitors.
12:18:59 <Kevin L™> Talk the boss into going to the park.
12:20:23 <Casey> Maybe I could get "Yellowstone Forever" as a client and head of that project. I'm sure those oil execs have money to throw around.
12:20:46 <Casey> *head up
12:33:15 <ynpvisitor79> What years of OFVCL are not in GT? Thought we had those already?
12:33:25 <Eric> congrats on the new possible job Casey :-)
12:34:03 <ynpvisitor999> as far as I know 1992 is not in GT
12:34:14 <ynpvisitor999> welcom back Hemic
12:34:34 <ynpvisitor999> SC ie
12:50:31 <ynpvisitor103> looks like a perfect day in paradise
12:50:55 <Kevin L™> Nope.
12:51:06 <Kevin L™> I'm not there.
12:52:07 <Dave from B> My thoughts exactly
12:52:25 <Dave from B> Kevin, nps has warned all rocks in the park that you will be there soon.
12:52:59 <Kevin L™> They best stay out of my way!
12:55:31 <ynpvisitor103> new rocks at all OF parking lots in Kevin's honor
12:56:04 <ynpvisitor77> Time for a 5 hour Grand. Don't think much chance of a early BH.
12:56:11 <ynpvisitor999> I think Kevin'd like a pile of rocks to erupt
12:57:03 <Dave from B> JimS is already in his chair
12:57:57 <Kevin L™> Well that one rock did cause an eruption!
12:58:20 <ynpvisitor77> Is that the rock that lugged up Plume?
12:58:24 <ynpvisitor77> plugged
12:58:47 <Kevin L™> No, I wasn't THAT far out!
13:01:50 <ynpvisitor103> Kevin drives van on bw, mayhem ensues
13:02:34 <ynpvisitor77> You killed your last car in the driveway, Wife may not let you drive hers.
13:03:01 <Kevin L™> I killed hers at Yellowstone.
13:14:31 <Jake> Daisy
13:15:00 <Hemic> They nailed the prediction again
13:15:55 <Jake> some say they're the best
13:16:56 <ynpvisitor77> And she is letting you drive?
13:19:49 <ynpvisitor103> Kevin, what time will you get to the West gate?
13:25:40 <Kevin L™> Probably around 1700-2000
13:27:20 <ynpvisitor103> no crowd then
13:28:25 <ynpvisitor77> There will be now.
13:28:34 <ynpvisitor103> long Turban interval
13:28:55 <ynpvisitor103> what will be now 77?
13:29:09 <ynpvisitor77> A crowd for Kevin
13:29:26 <ynpvisitor103> OF
13:31:01 <ynpvisitor103> Grand
13:34:01 <Dave from B> I have a 3 minute lag
13:34:14 <Kevin L™> Wait till Monday!
13:35:07 <Dave from B> I'm wondering how GTNP is going to enforce no parking in pullouts until after 6 am
13:36:02 <ynpvisitor103> they only have 3 or 4 LE's in park on schedule
13:36:41 <Dave from B> no way
13:37:06 <Casey> I don't have the timer going this time
13:37:12 <Jimbo Nickel> This is nicely visible
13:37:17 <Jimbo Nickel> Start at 1531?
13:37:34 <Dave from B> 1530 per field report
13:37:58 <ynpvisitor103> Mine showed up at start of 31, maybe start was late in the 50 minute
13:38:10 <Kevin L™> It will be fun to compare notes.
13:38:13 <Jimbo Nickel> Then this is ~8 minutes
13:39:57 <Jimbo Nickel> ~10 min
13:41:24 <Jimbo Nickel> ~11:30
13:41:31 <ynpvisitor77> I just looked at the map. I will need to move about a mile to see the total eclipse. Not so bad if I can get across the highway. If not, then I will have to settle for the edge, still total.
13:41:57 <Kevin L™> But the edge will vary a bit.
13:42:18 <Jimbo Nickel> Guessing that's it
13:42:30 <Kevin L™> Heading out. See you on the good side tomorrow!
13:42:48 <ynpvisitor77> The map says i will miss it by about 5 blocks.
13:42:49 <ynpvisitor103> well Friday anyway
13:43:06 <Dave from B> Have fun Kevin. See you Saturday
13:43:18 <ynpvisitor999> D0/G1C
13:43:22 <ynpvisitor77> Wave, and put on your fish hat.
13:43:36 <ynpvisitor999> 10m20s
13:43:55 <ynpvisitor77> Is there a Kevin preset?
13:44:18 <Dave from B> That would be on the Doublet bench
13:44:51 <ynpvisitor77> With his luck, he will leave the car window down and come back to find the cat in the back seat.
13:45:46 <ynpvisitor77> Well enjoy people watching. And the long lines of eclipsers.
14:21:43 <ynpvisitor999> I call it a day for today, bye
14:24:03 <Dave from B> see ya DG
14:35:04 <Dave from B> Time for me to go home and start packing. Have a great evening everyone!
17:06:09 <ynpvisitor63> OF 1905 wc
17:06:44 <ynpvisitor63> Split Cone too
18:27:54 <Eric> Nice Sunset and hello remote Kevin :-)
18:40:00 <Michael> 10-minute phone conversation. Long enough to miss OF. Glad I didn't miss Beehive too.
18:57:56 <Remote Kevin> Wfi is stressing.
19:01:50 <Eric> looks like turban
19:02:00 <Eric> or WT
19:15:37 <ynpvisitor15> BH or Grand next?
19:16:57 <ynpvisitor15> It looks like just hive steam, however it could go indyless again.
19:17:39 <Michael> I'm guessing Grand but wouldn't mind being wrong.
19:23:23 <ynpvisitor58> it will be dark soon
19:23:41 <Remote Kevin> Maybe that guy with the beam from the sun flashlight will go to Grand tonight.
19:24:13 <ynpvisitor15> Don't you mean to say BH?
19:24:31 <ynpvisitor58> is there a big beam in the basin?
19:25:39 <Remote Kevin> Yes on both. Check the GOSA replay from last night about 0305
19:26:25 <Michael> Tara's downbasin at F&M now (weak event cycle in progress). Probably carrying a monster flashlight with her.
19:27:02 <ynpvisitor58> yes, she has one
19:27:21 <ynpvisitor15> A remote controlled Kevin, what is next? Robot fish?
19:27:50 <Remote Kevin> This thing turned the cam back to color.
19:27:54 <ynpvisitor15> Wish I could see, kind of looks indyish?
19:28:18 <Michael> I'm wondering the same thing.
19:28:39 <ynpvisitor15> I keep seeing something like the hive in the middle of the steam
19:28:55 <ynpvisitor15> 1 minutes will tell
19:28:58 <Michael> I really think so.
19:28:58 <ynpvisitor15> 10
19:29:46 <ynpvisitor15> Looked like it in the light
19:30:04 <ynpvisitor15> Hope it cmes back
19:33:03 <ynpvisitor15> almost 5 gone?
19:33:58 <ynpvisitor58> you guys think indy is going?
19:34:16 <Michael> I do.
19:34:26 <ynpvisitor15> It sure looked like it when we could see it.
19:34:32 <ynpvisitor58> OF prediction is way off
19:34:40 <Michael> OF.
19:34:44 <ynpvisitor15> Grand?
19:34:50 <ynpvisitor58> yes on Grand
19:34:50 <ynpvisitor15> yep
19:34:51 <Michael> Yup Grand too.
19:35:14 <ynpvisitor58> so last OF must have been a short
19:35:34 <ynpvisitor15> And people wounder why I have no love for old fizzywig
19:36:23 <ynpvisitor58> I bet people ask you all the time...
19:36:29 <ynpvisitor15> Even Giantess looks extra steamy
19:37:18 <ynpvisitor15> No light on Grand
19:38:01 <ynpvisitor58> I don't t think there are many night gazers there
19:38:05 <ynpvisitor15> No in basin grand report
19:38:36 <ynpvisitor58> Tara is at F & M, most likely only one out, unless Adam is about
19:39:22 <ynpvisitor58> oh, Brian is there
19:40:07 <ynpvisitor58> we might still be able to see BH
19:41:02 <ynpvisitor15> Well it did indyless this week, would be bad if it did a false one and we had o proof.
19:41:05 <ynpvisitor15> no
19:41:59 <Betty at Idaho > Good evening all
19:42:00 <ynpvisitor58> well maybe BHI is not going
19:42:35 <Remote Kevin> Moonrise isn't until 0113 tonight and then it is only 26%.
19:42:49 <Michael> I'd be really surprised by a false indicator. If BH doesn't go soon, it's more likely that I was just imagining things to begin with.
19:42:51 <ynpvisitor15> Possible. There was a light on it for just a bit and it looked correct.
19:43:14 <ynpvisitor58> I'm thinking no indy
19:43:20 <ynpvisitor58> time will tell
19:43:26 <Kent> Hey Betty. Gald you made it north.
19:43:32 <Michael> Beehive!
19:43:33 <ynpvisitor15> Boooooom
19:43:37 <ynpvisitor58> something now
19:43:39 <ynpvisitor58> ?
19:44:05 <Remote Kevin> Hi Betty
19:44:32 <Michael> Dang, that's really indistinct.
19:44:36 <ynpvisitor15> We may not know for sure. What is the lion schedule?
19:44:48 <ynpvisitor58> 2nd at Grand maybe
19:44:58 <ynpvisitor58> geyser guessing...
19:45:02 <ynpvisitor15> I feel like a deer
19:45:12 <ynpvisitor15> There it is
19:45:14 <ynpvisitor58> there is a light
19:45:16 <Michael> I like that. "Geysey Guessing"
19:45:20 <Michael> Geyser
19:45:21 <Kent> :)
19:45:22 <ynpvisitor58> or was one
19:45:31 <Hemic> When was the night vision so bad?
19:45:39 <ynpvisitor58> darn, the cam changed to b/w
19:45:43 <Betty at Idaho > I don't see anything
19:45:57 <ynpvisitor15> But i can see, sort of, dang OF
19:45:59 <ynpvisitor58> someone lit up BH for a second
19:46:07 <Hemic> There thats better
19:46:15 <Kent> It was there. Very good shot of Beehive
19:46:16 <Hemic> beehives going im pretty sure
19:46:25 <Remote Kevin> Someone has a small light
19:46:30 <Hemic> nevermind
19:46:35 <Hemic> I couldnt see it
19:46:55 <ynpvisitor15> I think it is about done. But it was for sure. I know the capture will say so.
19:47:30 <ynpvisitor15> Betty, welcome to Idaho, the home of Potatoes!
19:48:43 <Betty at Idaho > Thanks 15, and Hi Kent Hemic, Michael and Kevin
19:49:33 <ynpvisitor15> Well that was fun. Enjoy the park Betty May the traffic flow with you.
19:49:33 <Michael> Hi Betty.
19:50:02 <ynpvisitor15> And don't feed the bears.
19:53:29 <Remote Kevin> Bet you beat me to the park.
19:54:26 <Remote Kevin> West gate is ugly between 0930 and 1230
19:55:45 <Betty at Idaho > We heading in south tomorrow
19:57:04 <Remote Kevin> Check out where you will be parking Monday?
19:59:30 <Michael> With some determination I could probably get to a traffic jam 50 miles short.
20:05:21 <Remote Kevin> Bummer on the Narrows Betty. With all the rain around they may not have let you go though.
20:07:33 <Betty at Idaho> I thought that too, Kevin. I hope to get to Gros Ventre viewing area
20:08:08 <Hemic> what is that light in the middle
20:08:41 <ynpvisitor94> Just a flashlight.
20:09:19 <Michael> Not sure what is holding their interest on Geyser Hill.
20:10:15 <ynpvisitor94> They may have just set their light down and have no idea it is pointed at the cam.
20:20:43 <Michael> I can't come up with anything to watch, so I'm turning in for the night.
21:09:09 <ynpvisitor12> someone is waiting at bee
21:10:21 <ynpvisitor12> I see bee erupted at 2143wc
