07:06:12 <Eric> yep
07:06:24 <Eric> could have been minors in there
07:06:40 <Joe> Close enough :)
07:06:42 <Dave from B> most likely since 3 majors would be closer to 40
07:09:26 <ynpvisitor101> Has the earthquake activity over the summer, made any changes to eruptions, or other features?

08:38:57 <Kent> Good evening from Aswan, Egypt
08:39:37 <Joe> Hi Kent, long way away.
08:39:42 <Dave from B> Good evening Kent...home of one of the 32 qualifying World Cup soccer countries
08:40:22 <Kent> I think I am farther tan Betty
08:41:25 <Dave from B> How often do you go to Middle East? I seem to remember a couple of trips in addition to this one.
08:41:41 <Kent> drove by the Aswan football stadium on our way into town.
08:42:19 <Kent> Not often. Marking things off my list
08:43:24 <Eric> Nice! Egypt is on my bucket list.
08:43:35 <Kent> i have now seen the pyramids along the Nile.
08:45:32 <Kent> early call in the am. Night.
08:47:54 <Dave from B> nite Kent. Have fun fun fun
08:48:08 <Eric> Stay safe out there Kent
08:57:42 <ynpvisitor101> Has the earthquake activity over the summer, made any changes to eruptions, or other features?
08:59:11 <Dave from B> 101, not that we know of
08:59:33 <Kevin L™> I haven't really noticed any effect from the eq activity.
09:00:01 <ynpvisitor5> there were some changes at Norris geyser basin, but it's nothing that hasn't happened before with yearly seasonal changes even in years without earthquakes
09:00:39 <ynpvisitor5> need a nice 6.0 or greater to really shake things up!
09:01:11 <ynpvisitor31> what and when ?
09:06:52 <ynpvisitor603> Couple Elk on the Electric Peak Cam
09:08:43 <ynpvisitor31> congrats to Aurum and Penta ynpvisitor603 D::thumbsup:
09:10:36 <ynpvisitor603> Thats :)
09:10:39 <ynpvisitor603> Thanks ;)
09:11:32 <ynpvisitor31> :D
09:23:01 <Kevin L™> I thought the Soda Springs eq swarm would have had some effect but it didn't
09:23:09 <Kevin L™> :)
09:23:27 <ynpvisitor999> morning everyone
09:24:27 <Kevin L™> Hi
09:25:01 <Eric> Hi DG
09:48:25 <Dave from B> A strange name at the top of today's golf leaderboard
09:58:55 <Dave from B> Kevin, the new UM football coach is a former UM and UNLV coach. Not sure how I feel about it.
09:59:41 <Kevin L™> Who is he?
09:59:51 <Dave from B> Bobby Hauck
10:00:08 <Dave from B> Big Timber, MT native
10:00:34 <ynpvisitor999> Dwarf near boardwalk or Depression?
10:01:22 <Kevin L™> OK. Having a bad spell at UNLV isn't all bad. They have only had one good team that I remember and they even had a former pro coach once.
10:03:18 <Dave from B> He did take UNLV to a bowl game and he was very successful at UM from a team perspective but he is stubborn and some have tried to say he started the downhill issues with the program.
10:07:10 <Dave from B> Eric, did Boby Hauck come up when you read the book about UM?
10:10:04 <Eric> I didn't read that book Dave
10:10:28 <Dave from B> Sorry, I thought you did.
10:10:50 <Eric> NP :-) I know someone mentioned it here...but don't remember who
10:12:09 <Dave from B> I remember now...it was lc, I believe
10:24:10 <Dave from B> NO!
10:25:19 <Eric> YES?
10:26:10 <Dave from B> I did NOT quit:)
10:29:00 <Kevin L™> Maybe
10:38:54 <Dave from B> The hunt for Aurum continues
10:39:08 <Dave from B> not a great wind direction
10:42:47 <Kevin L™> Aurum is on vacation is the Figi Islands.
10:43:20 <Dave from B> You still using my keyboard, Kevin?
10:44:16 <Kevin L™> It does have a loose nut behind it.
10:47:31 <ynpvisitor116> Intersting steam from F&M area. COuld be drift though.
10:54:50 <ynpvisitor999> Riverside ie?
10:55:06 <ynpvisitor116> Wrong timing.
10:55:49 <ynpvisitor999> indeed
10:56:09 <ynpvisitor999> must've been steam from the Groblong area
10:56:22 <ynpvisitor116> Grotto drift or F&M event.
10:56:41 <ynpvisitor999> would be nice to have an F&M today
10:57:36 <ynpvisitor116> Virtually impossible to tell from the cam, especially with the strong winds today.
10:58:04 <ynpvisitor999> true :(
10:58:57 <ynpvisitor116> That is likely something in Grotto area now. Different than before.
11:00:43 <Dave from B> So, 116, you are thinking 2 geysers down basin?
11:03:07 <ynpvisitor116> Can't tell Dave, but sure seem to have different characteristics.
11:03:42 <Dave from B> Seems to be 2
11:03:45 <ynpvisitor999> time to wait for logger data, if available, then
11:26:46 <Kevin L™> A doggie
11:48:47 <Dave from B> Time to head out...going to Red Lodge for the evening. Have a great weekend everyone!
11:49:26 <Kevin L™> Have fun
11:50:40 <ynpvisitor999> bye Dave
12:15:30 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy ie
12:16:18 <Eric> Hmm, can anyway tell if this is a wolf or coyote on the UGB static cam? http://geysercam.xyz/ugb/2017/11/11302017.html
12:16:24 <Eric> At about 14 seconds in
12:16:35 <Eric> @ 8:52am
12:17:07 <Eric> It looks much bigger than the coyote seen later in the day
12:20:14 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1419
12:25:08 <Kevin L™> Looks more like a coyote.
12:26:27 <ynpvisitor999> I actually don't know the difference between a wolf and a coyote, as they look almost the same to me
12:38:39 <ynpvisitor> Sorry, can not figue out how to get a look at it, just a blur
12:42:09 <Joe> after hitting play click the picture to stop click to start also after stopping on the right there + and - 1 or 5
12:43:28 <Joe> time on the picture is top right
12:43:47 <ynpvisitor> I got it. Looks like a big wilie to me. Never seen on on static so the angle may be playing with me. i have only seen them on the streaming cam, different angle makes them look smaller next to the bench
12:44:20 <ynpvisitor999> Lion trying?
12:44:35 <ynpvisitor999> looks like it, hopefully
12:44:38 <Joe> you can also grab the white slider, hold it and go right or left
12:45:32 <ynpvisitor999> I hope for another long Lion series and this time with NGG
12:45:46 <ynpvisitor> What was the date again? There have been people around, would think if they saw big wolf tracks the secret would get out.
12:46:02 <ynpvisitor999> November 30th, I do believe
12:46:46 <Joe> time and date top right
12:46:47 <ynpvisitor9> Pointy nose and skinny ankles make it a coyote.
12:46:50 <Eric> You can see a coyote on that day at 37 seconds in
12:47:01 <Eric> looks sooo much smaller
12:47:07 <ynpvisitor> With out a better image, I would say just our friend. That is where they like to hang out.
12:47:34 <Eric> at noon on the camera timestamp
12:47:48 <Joe> by the way nice job Eric.
12:49:28 <Eric> Thanks Joe...and everyone for you input. Guess I need to add a share at exact point feature too so people don't have to scroll around when you want to point something out :-D
12:49:57 <ynpvisitor999> that would be useful :)
12:50:45 <ynpvisitor> Second one looks like a poodle. Still Bench high, and what I was guessing for the first one. Quite a bit of difference in depth of Field, though it looks like a short distance.
12:52:14 <Eric> Ya, probably a distance/depth trick on my mind :-D
12:52:30 <Eric> Thanks for looking
12:52:59 <ynpvisitor> If somene could find it, Betty called a wolf this summer I think it was. it was up by Lion/BH. It was big
12:53:21 <ynpvisitor> I am sure it is on GT under ONGR or what ever it is
12:54:03 <ynpvisitor> DO not know if it is searchable
12:54:25 <ynpvisitor> I think there is a u tube clip
12:55:40 <ynpvisitor> Big gunfight on Dillon. The expert sure does not know how to shoot a pistol.
12:56:25 <Kevin L™> He should call Pallidan.
12:57:38 <ynpvisitor> Some lawman friend of Dillons. Coul dnot hit a barrel full of water the way e is jurking the gun around to make it go bang.
12:58:23 <ynpvisitor> It did start out good.
12:58:34 <ynpvisitor999> possible sufferer of Nonsensical Rifle Addiction
12:58:58 <ynpvisitor> You can not eat fish with out the head on them. Could be a mermaid.
12:59:27 <ynpvisitor> Well lunch is over. hope someone finds the wolf video to look at.
13:22:24 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
13:22:49 <Joe> nice
13:30:18 <Eric> 8m on Grand
13:32:16 <ynpvisitor999> looks like firstburst done
13:32:30 <ynpvisitor999> ~10m
13:33:22 <Kevin L™> Wolf Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td65Xa2Rucc
13:35:19 <Joe> thanks Kevin
13:35:38 <Eric> Yep, thanks.
13:36:57 <Eric> Truthfully, I am still not fully convinced that doggy yesterday wasn't a wolf...but it's so hard to tell with how the cam distances change perspective I am not convinced it was one either :-D
13:37:33 <Eric> Super hard to tell with a single blurry frame
13:37:52 <Kevin L™> It may be one of those newfangled wolfoytes.
13:56:41 <ynpvisitor117> riverside
13:57:44 <Graham> its the weekend
13:59:56 <Graham> looks like the snow is a bit better at the West Gate
14:00:01 <ynpvisitor999> OF needs some more hot water to get an eruption going
14:00:52 <Eric> Looks like enough for a snowmobile ride :-D
14:01:22 <Eric> You coming in from West or up at mammoth graham?
14:03:31 <Graham> Mammoth. Xanterra has a run from the airport to Mammoth and then i get the snowcoach in the next morning
14:08:11 <Graham> thats the only route Xanterra has now, nothing from West or South
14:08:27 <Graham> you can make arrangements with other companies tho
14:11:37 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1611
14:11:38 <Eric> OF
14:12:06 <Eric> Well, I hope the park gets filled with white stuff for you :-D
14:12:36 <Graham> looks like its staying cold now with a little snow but not the big dump of snow they need
14:12:49 <Graham> maybe a bit this weekend
16:20:00 <Kevin L™> Weekend?
17:30:19 <Betty> OF ie
18:34:32 <Kevin L™> Morning Betty
18:36:33 <Kevin L™> Dec will have the brightest full moon of the year.
18:37:07 <Betty> hi Kevin
19:09:20 <Kevin L™> Is that Grand back there or a very large Turban?
19:29:10 <Betty> Grand cloud would be bigger
19:29:34 <Betty> oh, there it was
19:29:36 <Kevin L™> It was 20m ago.
19:30:58 <Kevin L™> didn't look big enough for Grand so I bet it was Oblong at the cloud looks like Turban now.
19:31:11 <Betty> must be time for sleep
19:32:26 <Kevin L™> It you haven't been to bed yet it probably is. I am thinking about it myself.
19:33:02 <Betty> I took a nap on my couch
19:34:14 <Betty> so, goodnight
19:34:20 <Kevin L™> It was another hectic day for me. I told my daughter it is time for her to lift up the radiator cap and drive a new car under it.
