06:09:10 <Dave from B> Morning Jimbo
06:09:29 <Jimbo Palladium> Hi Dave
06:19:36 <Dave from B> We have a large palladium mine less than 2 hours from us
06:21:56 <Jimbo Palladium> Thar's gold and precious metals in them hills!
06:23:00 <Jimbo Palladium> U.S. is fourth in palladium production
06:24:42 <Dave from B> I believe mine near Nye, MT is largest in US if not the world
06:27:59 <Jimbo Palladium> Checked - it's the ONLY palladium and platinum mine in the U.S.!
06:28:34 <Dave from B> Didn't realize Russia production is so high. That would explain why Nye mine is owned by a Russian Company
06:29:13 <Jimbo Palladium> Article I read said it was owned by a South African company
06:29:28 <Jimbo Palladium> (as of this May)
06:29:29 <Dave from B> How old is your article?
06:29:46 <Dave from B> Thanks...mine has changed hands a few times in the last 10 years
06:30:36 <Jimbo Palladium>
06:31:01 <Jimbo Palladium> Back when I was a young'un I visited the Homestake mine -- it was still a working mine then
06:31:42 <Jimbo Palladium> That was on a Mount Rushmore trip
06:31:46 <Dave from B> I really enjoyed watching large trucks working in Homestake pit. They looked like ants
06:32:27 <Jimbo Palladium> We went underground!
06:33:29 <Dave from B> fun
06:35:02 <Jimbo Palladium> I just did a map check - I forgot how close Lead was to Mount Rushmore
06:49:48 <Dave from B> My bad...when you said Homestake I was thinking of Butte, MT..There is a Homestake pass nearby but pit was the Berkeley Pit
06:54:11 <Jimbo Palladium> I've seen pictures of that - I know what you mean
06:56:35 <Dave from B> At the viewing area thay have a full size truck to show how large they are. Tires are HUGE...taller than anyone I know
07:14:53 <ynpvisitor999> morning everyone
07:15:50 <ynpvisitor999> just received my copy of the Geysers of Yellowstone :)
07:16:23 <Dave from B> Nice! Your first copy?
07:16:43 <ynpvisitor999> first physical one
07:17:17 <ynpvisitor999> had an incomplete download first for a year and three days today
07:20:53 <ynpvisitor8>
07:21:15 <Kevin L™> That should keep you busy for a while.
07:21:32 <ynpvisitor999> moring Art
07:21:45 <Art> Construction continues this morning
07:23:18 <ynpvisitor999> and yes, it will keep me busy for a while, and I have homework to do, too...
07:29:22 <Art> Hi......
07:29:44 <Art> Bye....
07:29:49 <Kevin L™> Bet I know where you are.
07:43:46 <ynpvisitor49> I wonder if they will do sections of the path at a time dig up all the old pavement before laying any new?
07:44:18 <ynpvisitor49> Gazers won't be too happy when the section near F&M is closed
07:44:55 <ynpvisitor49> Or dig up, forgot a word there...
07:45:41 <ynpvisitor3> There ar not many rangers, just walk over it.
07:46:07 <ynpvisitor3> BH in less then an hour.
07:48:08 <Kevin L™> How bad is the trail down that far. I would be surprise to see them d o the whole thing.
07:51:37 <Dave from B> I thought they were doing spur to Chinese Spring or is that done already?
07:54:11 <Dave from B> I would be surprised if they did the entire bike trail in 1 year. Any info online about this project?
07:55:56 <ynpvisitor999> OF
07:57:42 <ynpvisitor3> Bike trail in a year? Impossible. Look at how long it has taken for the road from Mammoth. The environmental impact statement would take them over a year for just a bike path.
08:04:28 <Kevin L™> Big difference there. The bike path would be laid on the same base which would not require an environmental assessment. The road to Mammoth had a lot of sub base work that was in a sensitive area.
08:05:20 <ynpvisitor3> Still took forever.
08:05:31 <ynpvisitor86> ^^ well said Kevin
08:05:37 <ynpvisitor3> Indy?
08:06:03 <ynpvisitor999> don't think so
08:16:09 <Kevin L™> With the cost of the rubber asphalt I really can't see them doing the entire bike path.
08:16:41 <ynpvisitor63> It's already falling apart
08:16:44 <Dave from B> Doesn't OF to Castle seem more likely?
08:17:31 <Art> Couple bison hoof sized holes here and there
08:18:10 <Art> Not as soft either
08:19:13 <ynpvisitor52> well if you look at Art's photo he posted, they have definitely taken the pavement off from where pavement starts at OF to the bw to the overlook
08:19:58 <ynpvisitor52> is that right Art? Did not see you were here.
08:20:17 <ynpvisitor52> Tara posted she heard all the way to Morning Glory is the plan
08:20:54 <Dave from B> wow. that is quite the undertaking
08:21:05 <ynpvisitor52> how much longer are you in the park Art?
08:21:14 <Art> Daisy
08:21:22 <Art> Just till Saturday afternoon
08:21:41 <ynpvisitor52> enjoy your final days
08:24:02 <Kevin L™> If they do that it will probably just standard asphalt. The existing path was done about 1970.
08:24:42 <ynpvisitor3> Think they will have flaggers and pilot people in the construction zone?
08:24:44 <Dave from B> New material definietly seems to have a much shorter life
08:25:49 <ynpvisitor52> they thought it would last longer...yet Yellowstone has some different ideas...
08:25:55 <Kevin L™> On a footpath it should be fine Dave.
08:26:35 <Dave from B> I think the main reason they are using it is it is more porous
08:27:33 <ynpvisitor52> they do not use it on roads where vehicles go, do they?
08:27:48 <ynpvisitor52> I thought it was some grant program
08:28:04 <Kevin L™> I would think that they would remove the asphalt and leave it open paving. They should be able to pave the whole thing in a day.
08:29:06 <ynpvisitor52> so I wonder if the path will be closed the whole time they tear it all up?
08:29:30 <Kevin L™> They do a type of it on roads. If you have ever driven on I-515 from I-215 to Wagon Wheel in Vegas, you have on some of it.
08:29:31 <Dave from B> 52, I would think it will be done in sections
08:30:04 <ynpvisitor52> Kevin just mentioned pave it in a day....
08:30:09 <Dave from B> How long did it take to do other sections at OF?
08:30:46 <Kevin L™> For the most part those had to be hand done. Big difference.
08:32:05 <Dave from B> So, the time it takes them to tear old up and prepare it for paving is probably 90% of the project time?
08:36:19 <Eric> Morning all
08:36:42 <Eric> Funny to see Art is posting from solitary :-P
08:36:57 <Eric> or should say chatting from solitary
08:37:16 <Kevin L™> doing the basework is a lot of the time, but on the others when they paved, the asphalt could not be brought in with large trucks.
08:37:45 <Eric> looks like grotto ie
08:38:11 <Eric> Guess it's been going for a while
08:43:30 <Dave from B> Is there a way GT can force someone to answer a field when posting an eruption?
08:43:55 <Art> It's very solitary up here
08:44:12 <Kevin L™> Don't miss BH!
08:44:28 <ynpvisitor86> yes- for example if you do an A it will say "please enter a meaningful comment" before it will le you post it
08:44:30 <Kevin L™> They do it on some things Dave.
08:45:17 <Dave from B> Thanks 86...
08:45:32 <Eric> Yes, things can be forced, but forcing can be at the detriment of more entries.
08:46:39 <ynpvisitor3.14> It looks as though Mr Bryan is present and accounted for in the park. Most excellent.
08:46:57 <Eric> Yes, just noticing he is choosing Grand over BH :-)
08:47:11 <ynpvisitor3.14> The great debate...
08:48:15 <ynpvisitor3.14> To Bee or not to Bee...
08:48:20 <Eric> hmmm, it truly is a toss up today between the two...could have a dual :-)
08:48:25 <Dave from B> I'm thinking about BH close to Cone when I made my comment. Is it drooling, bubbling or actually erupting. To me, that difference needs to appear on GT.
08:48:47 <ynpvisitor52> that is funny Dave
08:49:11 <Dave from B> I don't take credit for the "drooling". Was descibed that way by someone else this week
08:49:35 <ynpvisitor3.14> Saw that on FB I think.
08:50:03 <Dave from B> Sometimes I feel just entering data without more description isn't really good data
08:50:49 <ynpvisitor86> drooling was a description! Better than just a XXXX tme
08:51:13 <Dave from B> Exactly but what is close to cone doing this morning?
08:51:40 <ynpvisitor3> Bubbling worked yesterday.
08:52:40 <ynpvisitor999> A test could be done by putting BHCCI under the section 'Other - Leave Comment', which will, if it goes as I think it goes, force the entrant to add a comment
08:54:05 <Eric> Meh, I would rather see that the indicator is active then not see it at all. But the additional info is always nice.
08:55:12 <ynpvisitor999> I'd say that 'active' is good enough to describe activity if no words can describe what CCI is doing
08:55:36 <Kevin L™> In a few weeks that won't matter anyway.
08:56:16 <ynpvisitor999> snowfall and such then, already... the year flew by
08:56:26 <Eric> My suggestion is if additional info is normally available, let the user know that entering it is helpful to others.
08:56:57 <Dave from B> Sounds good. More info on a post is always better
08:57:37 <Eric> A liittle warmer today
08:58:50 <Dave from B> Eric, how is the Eagle Fire doing?
08:59:43 <ynpvisitor999> regarding that additional info, a placeholder can be put in the text area for the comment which says something in the line of 'Additional info, if any available, is helpful to others'
08:59:58 <Eric> Growing still, but the wind has shifted so we are not getting much smoke and the ash has stopped.
09:00:49 <Eric> Over 30k acres now
09:01:21 <Dave from B> Western MT is supposed to get smoke from Can, OR, WA in addition to their own today. Supposed to be Hazardour levels
09:01:44 <Eric> Yes, the wind started blowing your direction....
09:01:49 <Eric> sorry :-(
09:03:51 <ynpvisitor3> I wish the wind would blow. Worse smoke we have had all year. Sisters Folk Festival canceled, first time in 22 years. Not sure what they are going to do about sold tickets.
09:04:12 <Eric> Apparently about 1000 crew on the eagle creek fire and it's 5% contained.
09:04:56 <Eric> Ohh bummer 3...It's going to get ugly over there until we get moisture.
09:05:37 <Dave from B> Has to blow somewhere, Eric...can we share the smoke with you every few days?:)
09:06:15 <ynpvisitor52> look how calm the West Gate is.
09:06:28 <ynpvisitor3> Well you are going to get it before we will. Fires will not go out till snow. Thinking smoke for at least 2 more weeks.
09:06:32 <ynpvisitor3.14> Smoke and ash is unreal, even several hundred miles away. Visibility where I am was under a mile over the weekend at times. Fine ash powder everywhere.
09:07:03 <ynpvisitor999> LC ie
09:08:05 <Dave from B> 0% Precip for next 7 days in Blgs....Normally we get snow in early October. It doesn't feel like that will happen in the valleys this year
09:08:25 <Eric> Yes, I just took my truck in for a bath this morning to get all that acidic ash off the paint before humidity moistened it.
09:09:06 <ynpvisitor52> smart move Eric
09:09:18 <Eric> No precip in forecast over the next 7 days in pdx either.
09:09:28 <ynpvisitor3> Dave, it will snow. I just hope it changes slow. Trees can not take a year of warm to 20 below again.
09:09:53 <Dave from B> I know Don has been getting lots of rain lately
09:10:06 <Eric> I thought all your pine tree were dead from beetles 3 :-(
09:10:09 <Kevin L™> I hate the abrupt changes.
09:10:29 <Don from PA> SW PA, not so much
09:10:43 <Kevin L™> Here is some wind for you Dave:
09:10:45 <ynpvisitor3> thought pdx was supposed to get rain this week from the thunder storms. I heard some places got a sprinkle this morning.
09:10:58 <Eric> apparently Branson survived Irma in his wine cellar...guess that wouldn't be a bad place to die if it happened :-P
09:11:30 <ynpvisitor3> Lots of them are. We have some kind of bug going around town killing trees in yards.
09:11:38 <Eric> I just checked weather and it shows very low percent chance 3...dry as a bone here.
09:12:02 <Eric> other than humidity
09:12:50 <ynpvisitor3> The big freeze we had a few years ago just about did in all my trees. We had no frost, it just turned 20 below in early November as I recall.
09:12:52 <Dave from B> Kevin, don't need that kind of wind but thanks
09:13:52 <Kevin L™> Too bad something that looks so cool has to be so destructive.
09:14:14 <ynpvisitor999> you don't need the hurricane winds, but you do need the hurricane rainfall for the forest fires to end or decrease in size
09:14:50 <ynpvisitor3> I just checked and PDX is 30% chance of showers today. That is like a sure bet for Portland.
09:15:15 <Kevin L™> Problem with rain after a big fire is it makes a lot of landslides.
09:15:16 <Eric> Well, I will let you know if I see any moisture :-)
09:15:41 <Eric> I live slightly north and tend to be a touch dryer.
09:16:52 <Art> Water in Indy
09:16:57 <Art> Send text ;)
09:17:05 <Art> .
09:17:06 <Art> .

09:17:12 <ynpvisitor3.14> Art, the man on the scene!
09:17:37 <ynpvisitor86> BB on scene probably!
09:17:39 <Eric> I see indy!
09:17:47 <ynpvisitor3.14> visible in WC
09:17:52 <Art> Now Aurum better not erupted now that we've left it
09:17:56 <ynpvisitor3> I was just going to say if LC did ot go soon, I would have to leave.
09:17:58 <Eric> got the txt
09:17:59 <Kevin L™> sent
09:18:03 <Art> Ty
09:18:32 <ynpvisitor3> Do you leave Grand?
09:18:41 <ynpvisitor3.14> at this point, yes
09:18:49 <ynpvisitor3.14> walk briskly.
09:18:53 <Kevin L™> Very quickly
09:19:36 <ynpvisitor3> think it is run, we have had some short indy's
09:19:47 <ynpvisitor3.14> could be.
09:19:51 <ynpvisitor52> will Kitt poncho up?
09:20:11 <Kevin L™> Does a bird fly?
09:20:29 <Eric> there she goes I think
09:20:35 <Eric> or someone is :-)
09:20:38 <ynpvisitor3> What, she is not watching Vixen?
09:20:53 <ynpvisitor52> Emily and Kitt
09:20:53 <ynpvisitor3.14> That's MA's world.
09:21:04 <ynpvisitor52> why would Kitt be watching Vixen?
09:21:15 <ynpvisitor52> She missed F & M last time that happened
09:21:18 <ynpvisitor3> She posted yesterday.
09:21:33 <Eric> Yep...watching vixen instead of F&M...oops
09:21:41 <ynpvisitor52> 3, she goes there one day of her trip
09:22:02 <ynpvisitor52> I am sure she thought she had more days until F & M
09:22:17 <Dave from B> Run to BH everyone!
09:22:38 <Dave from B> Take nourishment and run back!
09:22:45 <ynpvisitor3> BH has been fairly regular. Any gazer worth the title would be here.
09:22:50 <ynpvisitor3> Or there
09:22:59 <ynpvisitor3.14> Feet!!!
09:23:34 <ynpvisitor3> Lion splashing
09:23:38 <Kevin L™> Lion trying
09:23:41 <ynpvisitor52> that is an odd statement 3
09:24:11 <ynpvisitor85> ty once again
09:24:17 <ynpvisitor52> I think a Ranger is there today, lucky Ranger
09:24:19 <ynpvisitor3> BH every 15 hours or so, Fountain every 4. Where would you be in the daylight today?
09:24:57 <Eric> possible grand bh dual here
09:25:14 <ynpvisitor999> I'd be at Fountain, and go to BH when the interval is about 14h
09:25:18 <Eric> more likely on the next turban though
09:25:19 <ynpvisitor3.14> turban time about now
09:25:32 <Kevin L™> Did you see who entered the last Turban time?
09:25:43 <ynpvisitor3.14> scott 1105
09:25:48 <Eric> Yes, did he make the run or not?
09:25:54 <Dave from B> The author himself
09:25:58 <ynpvisitor3.14> i bet no
09:26:18 <ynpvisitor52> not used to being at 7000 ft yet
09:26:52 <Eric> Can we get a zoom out to check grand/turban?
09:27:03 <ynpvisitor3.14> makes me glad I live at nearly 6000. less adjustment.
09:27:15 <ynpvisitor52> it will be posted if it happens
09:27:57 <ynpvisitor999> it's going to be interesting if I make it to Yellowstone, as I live as good as below sea level and Yellowstone lays ~7000 feet above it
09:28:21 <ynpvisitor52> DG, you are young, you should have no issues
09:28:32 <ynpvisitor999> I hope not :)
09:28:53 <ynpvisitor52> drink lots of water and you would be fine
09:29:14 <ynpvisitor3.14> grand in GT
09:29:18 <ynpvisitor52> Grand 1128
09:29:27 <ynpvisitor3> Not to worry, they have ambulances, and can fly you out in a helicopter.
09:29:38 <Eric> zoom out would be awesome!
09:29:48 <ynpvisitor3.14> BH splash
09:29:53 <Eric> Now we are in OF window too :-(
09:30:00 <ynpvisitor999> OF in NPS & GT window
09:30:04 <ynpvisitor3.14> how about a trio?
09:30:26 <ynpvisitor999> or a quadruple if Castle decides to do a shorter intervl
09:30:33 <Jimbo Palladium> Oh my
09:30:35 <ynpvisitor3.14> Lion was huffing too.
09:30:41 <Eric> maybe LC will go too so we can have a 3.14 geyser display ;-)
09:30:42 <ynpvisitor3> Jim stayed at Grand, real surprise.
09:30:43 <ynpvisitor3.14> nice adjust camop
09:30:45 <ynpvisitor999> Castle in NPS window
09:30:46 <Kevin L™> Lion looking hot too.
09:31:01 <ynpvisitor3.14> supervolcano gonna blow...
09:31:06 <Eric> Thanks camop
09:31:17 <Dave from B> Let's get everything to go...don't we all have work to do...except for Kevin?
09:31:18 <ynpvisitor52> gazers can take a nap after this
09:31:19 <ynpvisitor3> Not unless Aurum goeas also.
09:31:57 <ynpvisitor3> Kevin needs to go dust his trains
09:32:08 <Eric> Will be interesting if we have lion go too...might be the largest number of major geyser I have seen simultaneously go at once on cam.
09:32:41 <ynpvisitor3> I thinki see water at LC
09:32:46 <ynpvisitor999> boom!
09:32:47 <ynpvisitor3> Weeee
09:32:52 <ynpvisitor3.14> thar she blows
09:33:07 <ynpvisitor3.14> bad breeze
09:33:18 <Kevin L™> Worst case for in basin people. Grand BH dual.
09:33:22 <Eric> right at us :-(
09:33:42 <ynpvisitor3.14> Kevin, ultimately a good problem to have. Rather be there to see one in person than both here...
09:34:12 <Jimbo Palladium> Beehive looks like a ghost!
09:34:21 <ynpvisitor3.14> OF trying
09:34:35 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1134
09:34:39 <Eric> OF
09:34:41 <ynpvisitor3.14> 3!!!!
09:34:41 <ynpvisitor85> A good sunner view
09:34:49 <ynpvisitor52> I would say BH/F&M dual is worse
09:34:51 <ynpvisitor3.14> 3 in one blow.
09:34:57 <ynpvisitor3> There goes the view.
09:35:05 <Kevin L™> :p
09:35:05 <ynpvisitor3.14> aw Fluffy...
09:35:07 <Dave from B> Dave M sent me a web capture of a quad that I actually was present for at OF in 2007: Lion, Grand, Giant and OF
09:35:22 <Jimbo Palladium> It's the hurricanes, I tellya
09:35:56 <Eric> Awesome!
09:36:12 <Eric> short?
09:36:16 <Jimbo Palladium> Glad I'm not showering in the Lodge now, water will be cold.
09:36:21 <Kevin L™> yep
09:36:24 <ynpvisitor3.14> very short i was thinking.
09:36:40 <ynpvisitor3> Missed Riverside in all this fun
09:36:40 <ynpvisitor3.14> BH stole the water.
09:36:42 <Eric> BH and Grand sucked it's juice
09:36:56 <Jimbo Palladium> OF being polite
09:36:58 <ynpvisitor999> short, < 117s
09:37:25 <ynpvisitor3.14> yeah, riverside, and oblong a half hour ago. time for zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz as Kevin might say.
09:37:36 <Dave from B> Last 40 minutes: Rocket major, Oblong, Riverside, Grand, BH, OF
09:38:01 <ynpvisitor3> There is always Split Cone!
09:38:04 <Dave from B> Artesia?
09:38:16 <Kevin L™> We still have Aurum
09:38:18 <ynpvisitor52> Jim stayed with TSB at Grand
09:38:19 <ynpvisitor3> Well enjoy people watching.
09:38:27 <ynpvisitor52> The Artesia post cracked me up
09:38:46 <ynpvisitor52> ns ini...
09:39:11 <ynpvisitor3.14> artesians.... i seen 'em...
09:39:40 <Dave from B> Lion, Depression, Castle, Aurum...lots to see still
09:40:05 <Dave from B> haha 3.14...haven't heard that one in a long long long time...what beer company?
09:40:13 <Dave from B> Rainier?
09:40:15 <ynpvisitor3.14> oly
09:40:19 <Dave from B> Thanks
09:40:37 <ynpvisitor999> Grand G1C/9m57s
09:40:38 <ynpvisitor3.14> Rainer had the raineer motorcycle like sound.
09:40:44 <ynpvisitor3.14> with doppler.
09:40:44 <Kevin L™> Which beer had the bear?
09:40:50 <ynpvisitor3.14> hamms?
09:41:15 <ynpvisitor3.14> from the land of sky blue waters
09:41:19 <ynpvisitor52> not a good day to pick Grand over BH
09:41:24 <Kevin L™> I think that is it.
09:41:44 <Dave from B> I think so, 3.14
09:41:48 <ynpvisitor999> it would be another story if Grand were to do more than, say 2-3 bursts
09:42:05 <ynpvisitor52> yes, or go for more than 11 minutes
09:42:09 <ynpvisitor3.14> i'd have picked BH today, and can get grand this evening.
09:42:34 <ynpvisitor999> or an afterburst, would be nice, too
09:45:20 <ynpvisitor999> Lion soon
09:46:39 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
09:46:44 <Eric> yerp
09:47:27 <ynpvisitor999> rough start. Is in need of jumper cables
09:48:05 <Eric> Nice looking
09:48:47 <Jimbo Palladium> Lion was late to the party
09:48:59 <ynpvisitor999> next Lion, if series continues, @ 1306 +- 10m
09:52:00 <ynpvisitor999> if you think about it, Lion is quite a predictable geyser. It only gets tricky for intervals between series and after minor eruption
09:58:17 <Dave from B> DGInc, sit there over 4 hours waiting for the initial and then tell me how you feel!:)
09:59:02 <Eric> will then take another 8 to erupt :-P
10:00:06 <ynpvisitor16> If no other predictions within the next hour - I've always found a walk up to Solitary watching a few cycles puts me at Lion at about the right time for the next in the series
10:00:22 <ynpvisitor999> and when it finally erupts, you're at another part of the basin
10:02:29 <Kevin L™> How are your teeth today Dave?
10:06:06 <Dave from B> Game is tonight. Teeth feel good right now...they aren't scared
10:06:44 <Kevin L™> Hope they survive this trip.
10:07:48 <Dave from B> Me too...planning on standing beyond the outfield fence again
10:10:23 <Kevin L™> Remind me not to go to the races with you.
10:10:42 <Eric> Dave needs this:
10:13:33 <Dave from B> How wide is that gap near the eyes? I think a ball can still get thru there.
10:14:08 <Dave from B> All joking aside. It could have been a LOT worse.
10:14:09 <Kevin L™> Or a piece of broken bat.
10:23:38 <Dave from B> That paints an interesting picture
10:35:58 <ynpvisitor999> OF ie
10:40:35 <ynpvisitor999> Castle?
10:40:55 <ynpvisitor999> doesn't look like it, but soon
10:41:07 <ynpvisitor999> it is, 1239 in-basin
10:44:38 <Kevin L™> Minor
10:45:33 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
10:52:51 <Jimbo Palladium> Where does it think I went?
10:57:00 <ynpvisitor999> I think it thought you got lost in world of elements and figured you wouldn't come back for the next couple of hours
10:57:21 <ynpvisitor999> and, as you can see, it was wrong
10:59:01 <Betty> hi all
10:59:09 <Kevin L™> Abend
10:59:11 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:59:16 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty
10:59:38 <Betty> hey Kevin, Eric and DGInc
10:59:56 <Jimbo Palladium> I think there's a few elements floating over the basin right now (mainly carbon) - yuck
11:00:34 <Kevin L™> Is carbon yuck similar to carbon dioxide?
11:08:06 <Jimbo Palladium> No, it's soot and dust and ash (speaking literally)
11:17:38 <Dave from B> Lion ie per 30 second delay
11:17:58 <Eric> LC too
11:18:53 <ynpvisitor999> just about in my 1306 +- 10m window
11:19:38 <ynpvisitor999> next Lion, if series continues, @ 1425 +- 10m
11:23:57 <Kevin L™> But what is your prediction if the series doesn't continue?
11:24:17 <ynpvisitor999> none
11:25:17 <ynpvisitor999> as intervals between series end and series start are most of the times irregular
11:25:28 <ynpvisitor999> same with minors
12:14:56 <Betty> OF ie
12:35:27 <Kevin L™> Here is a question while it is slow: I was watching a Harryhausen movie last night that had a geyser in it. Do any of you know of any other movies with geysers?
12:36:15 <Betty> nope
12:36:56 <Kevin L™> BTW the movie was Mysterious Island.
12:37:16 <ynpvisitor999> Lion trying, but I have to go
12:37:20 <Dave from B> Meet the Deedles?
12:37:33 <Betty> nite, DGInc
12:37:40 <Kevin L™> Nitee
12:38:03 <Dave from B> I've never seen it but just guessing
12:38:25 <Kevin L™> I haven't seen it either.
12:39:19 <Kevin L™> Reading the description, you are probably right.
12:39:48 <Kevin L™> BTW Yogi doesn't count!
12:40:57 <Betty> :-)
12:41:16 <Eric> Hey Boo boo
12:41:50 <Kevin L™> Poor kids with the cartoons they are stuck with now.
12:43:51 <Eric> There are some pretty amazing "cartoons" if you go international...most of the US animated stuff is garbage though.
12:44:09 <Dave from B> Has to be more movies with geysers
12:44:18 <Eric> I couldn't find any
12:44:36 <ynpvisitor86> The Yellowstone Cubs!
12:45:24 <Kevin L™> Yep. More bears than geysers though,
12:47:31 <ynpvisitor86> I distinctly remember the cub poking his face into an obviously fake small cone-type geyser and getting squirted!
12:49:37 <Kevin L™> Yellowstone Cubs is even available on DVD
12:51:16 <Kevin L™> Think Lion series may be over.
12:52:37 <Eric> While not quite geysers, the setting for Volcan in Star Trek: Beyond Spock was filmed up at mammoth in front of minerva hot springs.
12:52:58 <Eric> Vulcan
12:59:17 <Eric> Very few production movies shot in the park:
13:01:04 <Betty> hey, you were right with Vulcan
13:01:23 <Betty> Daisy
13:02:10 <Kevin L™> Tough to see it in the smoke
13:04:49 <Eric> cool shot of how they composited it:
13:04:59 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
13:05:07 <Eric> Night Betty
13:05:12 <Kevin L™> Night
13:05:20 <Dave from B> Nice, Eric
13:05:25 <Dave from B> Night Betty
13:09:05 <Eric> 51 years ago tomorrow, NBC aired the first episode of star trek!
13:10:15 <Kevin L™> Live long and prosper!
13:13:08 <Kevin L™> I bet the guy that cancelled it after 2 years is still kicking himself.
13:14:57 <Eric> Probably a bean counter!
13:15:05 <ynpvisitor3.14> i seem to recall the lava fountains in the star wars movie where he became darth vader was modeled after Grand.
13:15:30 <Kevin L™> It is so funny that is is still so popular.
13:15:40 <ynpvisitor3.14> revenge of the sith
13:16:41 <ynpvisitor3.14> never mind was mt etna
13:17:38 <Kevin L™> The chairs on the original Star Trek were dining room sets on closeout at a local furniture store.
13:19:12 <Kevin L™> For those who haven't read it, here is an interesting story involving Gene Roddenberry:
13:23:25 <Kevin L™> For western fans he also wrote both radio and TV episodes of Have Gun, Will Travel.
14:13:23 <Kevin L™> Looks like the detour is up.
14:16:55 <Kevin L™> Another day I didn't get Aurum. :(
14:23:30 <Dave from B> I wasn't paying attention...detour from top of path near OF to junction with Chinese Spring path?
14:49:16 <Eric> aurum
14:49:18 <ynpvisitor69> aurum
14:49:58 <Dave from B> Kevin
14:50:18 <ynpvisitor861> nice
14:50:59 <Eric> It waited for him to leave.
14:51:04 <Dave from B> KEVIN
14:53:25 <Dave from B> I tried...even texted Kevin
14:55:51 <Dave from B> lc just saw his first Aurum of this trip
14:56:23 <Eric> woot
14:56:36 <Eric> They seem to be pretty rare lately
14:57:19 <Eric> a bunch of long timers in the park this week :-)
15:00:01 <Dave from B> Yes, there is but it will get quiet in a week or so...field reports will start to fade away
15:00:28 <Dave from B> And, lc only invested 5 minutes at Aurum...that is nice
15:01:22 <Dave from B> Time to put my hour in downstairs. Have a great evening Eric and everyone else who is napping
15:01:28 <Eric> wow...walkup aurum. Opposite of Kevin :-P
15:01:36 <Eric> Night Dave
15:02:45 <Dave from B> lc is reporting awful smoke today
15:11:36 <Eric> grand?
15:11:47 <Eric> looks like it
15:12:09 <Eric> man...super on the ball camop, thanks.
16:02:24 <ynpvisitor24> Time for Patriots football
16:30:56 <ynpvisitor3> is air as bad as it looks on web cam?
16:42:06 <ynpvisitor69> yes
17:20:51 <Kevin L™> If you live up north there is a strong probability of Northern Lights tonight. IF you can seee through the smoke.
17:21:47 <ynpvisitor69> I can't even see the sun today.
19:00:01 <ynpvisitor26> Moonrise 2052
21:15:39 <ynpvisitor67> Grand ie
21:18:00 <ynpvisitor67> Big eq on seismo
21:18:58 <ynpvisitor67> 8.0 in southern Mexico
21:21:06 <ynpvisitor35> lots happening on our earth
21:24:44 <ynpvisitor67> Lion
21:25:26 <ynpvisitor67> Been a busy week for Mother Nature
21:26:19 <ynpvisitor35> she's not done yet
21:27:24 <ynpvisitor67> I am sure. Glad I don't live in Florida.
21:28:56 <ynpvisitor35> I can't even imagine...
