03:40:45 <Kitt> couldn't sleep
03:41:29 <Betty> so you found Daisy. I was distracted
03:41:55 <Kitt> I was on another site and came back to see it ie
03:52:49 <Betty> Steam behind the trees
03:52:57 <Kitt> looks like
03:52:58 <Betty> maybe Grotto
03:53:08 <Kitt> yes
03:53:23 <ynpvisitor999> did the GT icon changed?
03:53:32 <Kitt> yes
03:53:39 <Betty> yup
03:54:47 <ynpvisitor999> to me it now more-or-less looks like a steam plume above a volcano rather than a geyser, but that might just be me

06:01:11 <Betty> OF
06:04:42 <Betty> Daisy
06:20:06 <Betty> morning Kevin
06:22:43 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
06:27:41 <Kevin L™> BH will bee beetween 1230 to 1630
06:33:55 <Kevin L™> Interesting German train picture Betty:
06:34:27 <Kevin L™> Don't see two levels with steam that often. I assume the steam was the normal power on this run.
06:39:09 <Kevin L™> Lion
06:47:48 <Betty> think you are right
06:49:21 <Kevin L™> It would have been fun to see the steam in action, but they really didn't want us to go to East Germany at that point.
06:50:05 <Betty> nope, for sure not!
06:51:53 <Kevin L™> What is the difference between normal and 1st class fares on your train?
06:58:24 <Betty> If I´d buy a single trip to Darmstadt it would be 12,20€, and additional 5 € for first class ride
06:59:39 <Kevin L™> That is a lot more. Do they have anything special that makes it worth it?
07:00:16 <Betty> I have a Jobticket for for 108€ per month
07:00:40 <Betty> no, not even much more space
07:01:44 <Kevin L™> I figured they had a special rate for commuters. I do remember they told us day one not to get on the train cars with the yellow stripe with a regular ticket.
07:43:31 <Betty> Dome ie
07:52:24 <Betty> Lion
07:57:34 <Graham> Micah is on Anemone watch
07:58:03 <Betty> yeah
08:00:32 <Graham> he is going to try and fill the whole geysertime list with Anemones :)
08:00:55 <Graham> out for
08:01:05 <Betty> enjoy

08:11:38 <Betty> LC
08:12:30 <Kevin L™> Nice :bee:
08:15:44 <Kevin L™> Thanks Graham.
08:16:38 <Kitt> you are welcome for indy
08:17:08 <Kitt> I was in the shower and Bill came in to say bhi
08:17:24 <Kevin L™> :)
08:17:49 <Kevin L™> Bet that made for a quick shower.
08:18:18 <Kitt> definitely shortened it
08:19:12 <Kevin L™> Guy take a picture of Indy and then walks off
08:19:13 <Kitt> and I told Betty we had a good chance at another shorter interval
08:19:28 <Betty> you did :-)
08:19:48 <Kevin L™> He got a Depression picture too.
08:21:43 <Betty> Dome ie
08:22:25 <Kitt> Go very tall Bee!
08:22:30 <Betty> BH
08:23:06 <Kitt> oh that's where the gazers were
08:24:43 <Kitt> now I wonder if bee will lengthen out a bit for next eruption
08:25:41 <Kitt> bye indy
08:26:16 <Betty> sun is out
08:28:28 <Kitt> that was very enjoyable
08:28:33 <Kitt> have a good day
08:28:39 <Kitt> and thanks for the text
08:28:50 <Kevin L™> bye. Thanks for the text.
08:29:08 <ynpvisitor58> your welcome
08:29:29 <ynpvisitor58> your = you're in this case
08:34:19 <Betty> Daisy ie
08:38:13 <Betty> yay
08:38:33 <Betty> Micah heard it
08:38:42 <ynpvisitor117> !!!
08:39:10 <Betty> he looked around
08:45:39 <ynpvisitor117> Is there a phone number at the VC that allows you to leave a message?
08:45:53 <Kevin L™> Did I miss something?
08:46:08 <ynpvisitor58> aurum :(
08:46:15 <Kevin L™> :p
08:46:36 <Betty> your evil little geyser
08:46:47 <Kevin L™> VEC phone is 307 344 2750
08:46:54 <Betty> it was a good one
08:47:02 <ynpvisitor117> It was a nice eruption on the cam. Sorry you missed it.
08:47:19 <Betty> he is used to that
08:47:21 <Kevin L™> If they are there you may get a live person, if not a message machine.
08:48:14 <Kevin L™> I guess I will get it on the replay channel tonight
08:48:30 <ynpvisitor117> Thanks Kevin. I will wait until after hours. I want to offer a bribe for a dome cleaning.
09:05:08 <Betty> Dome
09:07:00 <ynpvisitor67> There is no answering machine on VEC phone line
09:09:12 <Betty> OF
09:10:40 <Kevin L™> It does take a message
09:11:44 <ynpvisitor67> Have you tried lately?
09:12:25 <Kevin L™> I got one about a month ago
09:13:17 <ynpvisitor67> Maybe it’s on during the time VEC is closed. It is not normally
09:14:34 <ynpvisitor67> There is a message on the machine yet it does not take messages from callers
09:15:29 <ynpvisitor67> I meant while Park is closed. Not after VEC closes for the day
09:15:38 <Kevin L™> I have not tried to leave a message, I just get the message that says leave a message.
09:16:09 <ynpvisitor67> I have not heard that message
09:55:57 <ynpvisitor55> Grand?
09:56:06 <ynpvisitor55> sure is
09:56:11 <Betty> yep
09:56:19 <Kevin L™> Big one
09:56:44 <ynpvisitor55> I beat Betty to the call? Must be on a delay
09:57:12 <ynpvisitor55> They wrecked already?
09:57:34 <Kevin L™> Betty was eating a schnitzengruben and her hands were greasy.
09:57:44 <Betty> LOL
09:57:46 <ynpvisitor55> Or have they messed the cars up so the do not do that nay more?
09:58:06 <Kevin L™> Just getting ready to start Talladega.
09:58:39 <Betty> Now I just need to know what a schnitzengruben is, Kevin :-)
09:59:03 <Kevin L™> Still think it is fun that a Bullring driver I have been watching since he was 10 won the Xfinity race yesterday on his first lap led in the series.
09:59:48 <Kevin L™> It sounds good Betty.
10:00:56 <ynpvisitor55> We going to see a riverside today, or did Kevin break it?
10:02:03 <ynpvisitor55> We may get a second
10:02:23 <Kevin L™> How do you do sign language for an instrumental song?
10:03:25 <ynpvisitor55> Huff and puff
10:03:40 <ynpvisitor55> looks like no second
10:04:50 <ynpvisitor55> I scared it, wait
10:04:57 <ynpvisitor55> Send I am sure
10:05:07 <Betty> 2nd
10:05:20 <ynpvisitor55> Now a 3rd?
10:06:51 <ynpvisitor55> Well that was fun.
10:12:18 <ynpvisitor55> Lion
10:12:44 <ynpvisitor55> Lucky person
10:17:36 <ynpvisitor55> Well enjoy.
10:43:26 <ynpvisitor117> Cabin at Canyon for two nights, $654 which includes $72 tax. The cabins are nice, but come on......
10:47:00 <ynpvisitor100> My canyon lodge room 4 nights 1440.16
10:48:29 <ynpvisitor117> My word.
10:48:56 <ynpvisitor117> ~~~
10:54:34 <ynpvisitor100> not many Yellowstone trips left for me on my budjet
10:56:20 <ynpvisitor100> budget*
10:57:20 <ynpvisitor117> I like budjet. A good name for a discount airline.
10:57:55 <ynpvisitor100> :)
11:05:01 <ynpvisitor56f> With the ridiculous xanterra prices and Wyoming tax this will be my last park visit. Find something cheaper like a week in Paris.
11:07:24 <Betty> Daisy
11:16:39 <ynpvisitor100> Lion
11:17:59 <ynpvisitor117> LC doing its thing
11:23:38 <ynpvisitor100> Canyon lodge has 400+ rooms, at 300.00 per night average for 5 months season 18 million $ gross income
11:25:38 <ynpvisitor107> Rent an RV, or buy one. Cost me like $25-30 a night, and I have gotten my use out of it so the rv is now free for me. Plus food is better and costs way less.
11:26:56 <ynpvisitor107> I am concidering putting on a big push bumper so I can get the cars that park in the RV only spots out of my way.
11:29:36 <ynpvisitor117> I am certain Phil Anschutz (Xanterra) is doing well, but the NPS is also using concession contracts to support basic maintenance since Congress doesn't really support the parks. Unfortunate, but it takes a lot of money to run our favorite zoo.
12:23:16 <ynpvisitor96> Hardly any field reports today. Is everyone at Norris?
12:31:23 <Michael> Good question. Maybe everyone picked up and left the park after Beehive.
13:03:49 <ynpvisitor80> Why, is Norris open?
13:05:30 <ynpvisitor80> I don't know what the wind speed is there
13:05:57 <ynpvisitor80> But Worland is alternating between a lite breeze and huge gusts
13:14:48 <ynpvisitor64> @ Norris, parking lot and Porcelain Basin only.
13:22:57 <ynpvisitor48> They all must be at Kevins house watching the race.
13:23:07 <ynpvisitor48> Or headed to Grahams to watch the game
13:25:24 <ynpvisitor56f> If they are with Kevin they are in Church. He records the race.
13:44:37 <Graham> daisy
13:48:15 <Graham> at least theres one eruption logged other than anemone
13:48:33 <Betty> :-)
13:49:06 <ynpvisitor73> Micah must be resting there
14:13:11 <Michael> OF
14:13:17 <Betty> OF
14:14:41 <Graham> yeah Caps now series is tied
14:14:56 <Graham> time to head home
14:14:58 <Graham> bye
14:15:05 <Betty> bye
14:44:04 <ynpvisitor33> big plume down basin
15:02:47 <ynpvisitor33> Twas Rocket I saw the plume for, with Grotto
15:38:33 <ynpvisitor33> will Grand do another interval under 6 hours? This would be 4 in a row.
15:52:27 <ynpvisitor61> OF 1752
15:55:10 <ynpvisitor33> Grand will be over 6 hours
16:07:49 <ynpvisitor97> Grand
16:07:51 <ynpvisitor97> yay
16:07:52 <ynpvisitor61> Grand 1807
16:10:31 <ynpvisitor97> nice spikes
16:11:46 <ynpvisitor48> Seems like I just saw it.
16:11:58 <ynpvisitor48> This day is not lasting very long.
16:13:49 <Kitt> Daisy
16:14:17 <Kitt> nice lighting
16:18:21 <Kitt> one burst
16:19:08 <ynpvisitor61> It was a very nice eruption
16:19:18 <Kitt> and now it is Old Faithful's turn
16:23:08 <Kitt> Grotto must have started again
16:23:30 <ynpvisitor59> Was gonna say the same thing :)
16:24:00 <ynpvisitor61> Split Cone
16:25:29 <Kitt> wonder why Kent has Daisy at 1814 when the huge steam plume was at 1813
16:26:04 <ynpvisitor61> Bad clock. I will adjust
16:26:24 <ynpvisitor59> Might have the chance to swing into the park, unplanned, July 4th week. How bad will it be? Have always avoided summer peak season.
16:27:12 <Kitt> last July we searched for the crowds the weekend before and after July 4th
16:27:29 <Kitt> there was only one day midweek that was busy
16:27:46 <Kitt> other years that has all been crazy
16:28:50 <Kitt> just bring your extra patience with you, arrive early, and have a secondary basin choice if first choice is crazy
16:28:59 <ynpvisitor59> Thanks, not too often an extra couple days in the park becomes an option.
16:29:18 <Kitt> the weather is usually great
16:29:36 <Kitt> with a couple of exceptions of course
16:29:36 <ynpvisitor59> ty
16:30:07 <Kitt> welcome
16:30:30 <Kitt> lady is waving at the cam
16:33:49 <Kitt> have a good evening

16:34:52 <ynpvisitor59> Grand just went at 1807
16:40:17 <ynpvisitor61> OF erupted at 1752. Why are all those people standing there. NPS predicts 1826??? NPS web app?
16:41:17 <Graham> typo,off by an hour
16:41:54 <ynpvisitor61> OK. Thanks
16:47:21 <Graham> hi Kent. are you in the park?
16:47:49 <Kent> No, I am home. No plans right now :( :(
