04:12:31 <ynpvisitor26> Lio
04:45:38 <Graham> :(
04:45:53 <Betty> morning Graham
04:46:32 <ynpvisitor26> Sorry to see you had to go back to the other world.
04:46:37 <Graham> Morning. Could be a short geyser report from Mammoth today
04:47:06 <Graham> Yeah, not ready for it
04:47:31 <Graham> But this was a great trip even though it was very grey
04:47:51 <Graham> Fun watching the Giant group and F&M were awesome
04:47:56 <Joe> We will miss your in basin reports.
04:48:18 <Graham> So will i
04:48:34 <Graham> Thanks for all the cam times too, very helpful
04:48:39 <Joe> Glad you had a great visit.
04:48:40 <Betty> when will you be back this year?
04:49:23 <Graham> Not sure, I have Memorial Day, 4th July, and Labor Day reservations
04:50:09 <Graham> Have to use more leave this year too as company leave policy is reducing what I can carry over, so may be a couple of trips
04:50:18 <Betty> I will be arriving Sept 20
04:51:02 <Graham> Memorial Day is possible, end of May
04:51:33 <Graham> Nice Betty, I didn't know you were coming this year. I think I will have left by the after Labor Day
04:52:33 <Graham> Labor day is 3 Sept so I would be leaving on 16th
04:52:40 <Graham> :(
04:52:55 <Betty> I thought I would miss this year, but then Thomas said we need to go. I would never say no then :-)
04:53:11 <Graham> Gazers count drops off then
04:53:17 <Graham> Haha you are so kind
04:53:50 <Betty> I know, but we have a family trip in August, so there was no other time left
04:53:54 <Graham> But webcam times will help you and listening to the elk bulging is nice
04:54:00 <Betty> :-D
04:54:06 <Graham> Or bugling
04:54:43 <Graham> Breakfast arrived, bbl
04:55:01 <Betty> we have the challenge to fight against chinese bus tours :-(
04:55:18 <Betty> enjoy
04:58:57 <Graham> Are you staying at OF Betty and for how long?
04:59:33 <ynpvisitor54> Graham ..are you driving up to Bozeman or did you take the shuttle
05:00:33 <Graham> Taking the bus up,makes life easy although I have a 4h wait for my flight
05:01:00 <Graham> Then u fly through MSP while the superbowl is being played there
05:01:09 <Betty> I usually stay at West and hope for 7 days
05:01:39 <Graham> They are putting up a TV in one of the meeting G rooms at Mammoth, what is the world coming to!
05:02:34 <Graham> Ok, should have good elk sightings on the drive in and out
05:02:47 <Betty> yeah
05:03:00 <Graham> And you know F&M and Giant like the fall :)
05:03:12 <Betty> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
05:04:02 <Graham> Still can't believe I saw F&M
05:04:23 <ynpvisitor54> and to have walked up on it
05:04:24 <Betty> haha, me too. :-) lucky you
05:04:24 <Graham> only watched it once and checked o. Walk by to the outhouse
05:05:41 <Graham> Then decided to shelter down there on the windy day and arrived as river was shutting off and MV was pushing out steam and Bottom Vent was spotting water
05:06:53 <Graham> So different from summer gazing as I just sat there not paying much attention until I could hear continuous spraying water
05:07:40 <Graham> When steam cleared I could see High going steady......figured I should get up off the bench then
05:09:10 <Graham> None of the speculation on water levels and detailed timing of any buffs from Mortar
05:09:27 <Graham> Or huffs
05:10:35 <Graham> The crowd of 1 did some yelling as it was a long 11m before Fan took off
05:10:48 <Betty> cool
05:12:57 <Graham> Best time to see it solo though, in sumber I am always wanting people to get there
05:13:27 <Graham> Early in the interval at night I keep wanting event cycles to quit
05:13:52 <Graham> But then after a few nights it's "just go"
05:14:07 <Betty> I can relate
05:15:03 <Graham> Giant activity was almost as surprising too, a lot more action than last year
05:15:22 <Graham> Hopefully we will see some eruptions
05:15:36 <Betty> that would be great
05:15:51 <ynpvisitor75> did you watch it as much in the fall?
05:16:26 <Betty> Tara had an eye on it when we were there in August
05:16:48 <Graham> I and others watched a bit but didn't see regular pauses or depth charging or SW vent eruption
05:17:03 <Betty> her calls made some people run then
05:17:15 <ynpvisitor75> so this is definitely increased activity nice
05:17:22 <Betty> afternoon DG
05:17:28 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon Betty, morning all
05:17:55 <Graham> I think so
05:19:46 <Graham> Will have to go through photos when I get home. Bijou was pausing every 12 or 25m roughly except during the depth charging period wben it was hours
05:19:47 <ynpvisitor999> OF ns
05:19:49 <ynpvisitor54> OF
05:21:54 <Graham> On 29th Bijou didn't pause for 2h20m when Mastiff was depth charging
05:25:56 <ynpvisitor999> Indy?
05:26:23 <ynpvisitor999> .
05:26:24 <ynpvisitor999> .
05:26:25 <ynpvisitor999> .
05:26:26 <ynpvisitor999> .
05:26:27 <ynpvisitor999> .
05:26:27 <Graham> I can't see
05:26:28 <ynpvisitor75> what does that mean Graham? not a good sign?
05:26:38 <Betty> yep
05:26:44 <Betty> indy
05:27:01 <Graham> I think it's always a good sign when Mastiff depth charhe's continuously for hours.
05:27:02 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
05:27:04 <Betty> Lion
05:27:28 <Betty> I can do the text
05:28:07 <ynpvisitor75> got it, but I thought Bijou might pause during those?
05:28:11 <Betty> done
05:28:20 <Graham> My point is that pauses were regular at all other tmes, the only long gap was when the depth charging was happening. If it had been like that last year we would have known about it
05:28:58 <ynpvisitor75> ok gotcha.
05:29:48 <Graham> I have only seen long depth charging once before in 2007 and that lasted 24h or more with hot per o ds every hour, ending with a Giant eruption. Normal function
05:30:16 <Graham> Of course that was during an active period
05:31:12 <Graham> I see BHI is foxed now I have left
05:31:18 <Graham> Fixed
05:33:03 <ynpvisitor999> :bee::bee:
05:33:53 <Betty> I´m way lagged as usual :-(
05:35:31 <Graham> Back to room to checkout., bye
05:35:45 <ynpvisitor999> bye Graham
05:36:26 <Joe> indy done
05:36:56 <Betty> safe travels, Graham
05:50:59 <Betty> nice catch
05:58:02 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
05:58:44 <Betty> really early
05:58:45 <ynpvisitor999> 7m before window
05:59:27 <ynpvisitor999> maybe Grand's trying to do 5 eruptions on one day?
06:00:35 <ynpvisitor999> 5 eruptions in 24 hours would be more reasonable
06:27:35 <ynpvisitor31> Daisy IE
08:11:56 <ynpvisitor999> Riverside ie
08:13:37 <ynpvisitor999> Castle
08:13:42 <Joe> Castle
08:14:36 <Kevin L™> Scholß
08:14:56 <Betty> Schloß
08:15:53 <Betty> don´t use Dave´s keyboard
08:16:11 <ynpvisitor85> :castle:
08:20:30 <Kevin L™> :)
08:21:04 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum?
08:21:10 <Kevin L™> I was lucky to find the ß!
08:21:16 <Kevin L™> Think so
08:21:53 <Kevin L™> Yes it was.
08:21:58 <Betty> yep
08:22:18 <Kevin L™> OF tried to hide it.
08:22:22 <Betty> confirmed by my lagged stream :-p
08:22:35 <Betty> and static
08:30:59 <Betty> Kevin, I´m just compiling a fotobook of our last trip to US. I just put in the pictures of the eclipse :-)
08:31:27 <Joe> OF
08:39:50 <Joe> Castle looks like it is a major
09:34:51 <Graham> At the airport, 3.5h to takeoff......time for a beer
09:35:08 <Betty> yummy
09:49:53 <ynpvisitor999> did the NPS lower their predicted interval for OF even further? The interval is predicted to be 1h21m
09:51:01 <ynpvisitor999> think I just saw the first preplay, 1150
09:54:02 <ynpvisitor111> may have been an intermediate eruption to get the shorter prediction?
09:54:49 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
09:55:56 <ynpvisitor999> I thought the NPS predicted only long and short and predict long intervals for intermediate?
09:56:35 <ynpvisitor115> It was a 4m+ long eruption.
09:56:48 <ynpvisitor999> ah, thanks for the info
09:56:55 <ynpvisitor115> I assume someone made a typo or math error.
09:57:08 <ynpvisitor999> that's the most likely one
09:57:26 <Graham2> no, they do predict intermediates too
09:58:09 <ynpvisitor999> didn't know that
09:58:19 <ynpvisitor30> they weren't predicting them this summer, just short and longs
09:59:50 <Graham2> ok
10:08:36 <ynpvisitor999> Dome ie
10:10:33 <ynpvisitor999> actually, I think it was as good as exact
10:10:35 <ynpvisitor115> Larger crowd than I was expecting.
10:10:59 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1210
10:13:29 <Graham2> i was hoping to see a Dome initial but i missed bot daylight nes
10:15:35 <ynpvisitor115> Always a hard one to catch. It took me years before I finally saw an initial.
10:15:41 <ynpvisitor115> in person
10:15:59 <Betty> cool
10:18:38 <Graham2> missed one by less than an hur after BH. then missed yesterdays as I was watching the Giant action
10:18:39 <ynpvisitor999> how many bursts had Grand's 0757 eruption?
10:35:55 <Graham2> another Aurum today, nce
10:56:53 <ynpvisitor999> coyote
11:27:46 <ynpvisitor999> Dome
11:31:02 <ynpvisitor103> Dome, Dome on the basin, where the bison and the coyotes roam....
11:43:31 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1343
11:50:14 <ynpvisitor999> Grand or Turban steam?
11:52:47 <ynpvisitor999> Grand, I think 1349 ns
11:53:34 <Betty> I can´t tell, stream is choppy
11:53:53 <Betty> it is ie
11:53:59 <ynpvisitor999> according to Dave 1343 ie
11:54:06 <Betty> I saw a frozen spike :-)
11:55:08 <ynpvisitor115> sorry that wasn't ie I've corrected the entry. Too much snow to see much
11:55:34 <ynpvisitor999> thanks for posting it :)
12:23:11 <ynpvisitor904> Looks like Graham packed up and took his snow home with him
13:00:31 <ynpvisitor904> Static stuff on the stream is back
13:13:45 <ynpvisitor32> )F 1513
13:13:52 <ynpvisitor32> OF
13:20:04 <Betty> a long
13:57:10 <Betty> coyote
14:01:11 <Betty> night all
14:43:42 <ynpvisitor63> I just saw a puff from Plume. I know, I was hallucinating. Hope springs eternal.......
15:00:32 <ynpvisitor63> Truly, one of the Seven Wonders!
16:36:53 <ynpvisitor3> indy
16:40:03 <ynpvisitor3> nope
16:44:24 <ynpvisitor6> Looks like it could be Depression.
18:22:06 <ynpvisitor113> I figured Dave would be here.
18:25:56 <ynpvisitor113> Unless he is in morning!
18:51:24 <ynpvisitor69> He is probably watching Mannix reruns on Decades TV.
18:51:57 <ynpvisitor113> That would be Kevin.
19:18:49 <ynpvisitor113> Lion
19:19:58 <ynpvisitor113> Or BH?
19:20:25 <ynpvisitor113> ..
19:20:26 <ynpvisitor113> ..
19:20:27 <ynpvisitor113> ..
19:20:53 <ynpvisitor113> Yup, it is BH.
19:20:56 <ynpvisitor69> BH
19:21:35 <ynpvisitor113> 21:18, ns
19:23:35 <ynpvisitor113> Have no idea on indy, as it was not clear enough for me.
19:25:07 <ynpvisitor113> Time to go, the queen calls.
19:25:43 <ynpvisitor69> That was fun
19:27:53 <ynpvisitor69> Got the main one. DaveM is great at picking it out on replays.
20:19:33 <ynpvisitor69> Is that snow on the dome.
20:19:53 <ynpvisitor115> yes
20:20:39 <ynpvisitor69> Oh no.
20:22:03 <ynpvisitor69> May be a boring Monday.
