23:27:46 <Wapiti Wolves> OF
04:32:49 <Rice> OF
05:50:14 <Mike J> Good morning all. And, based on the verbosity, it looks like it is a slow morning at that.
05:53:46 <Dave from B™> Yes, we're having a long moment of silence
05:54:48 <Mike J> Moments of silence for Sawmill and Plume.
05:57:08 <Dave from B™> How's the Disney biz?
05:58:01 <Mike J> Haven't been in a while. Would really like to see the new Pixar shows, et al. Hear they are really good. But life (and finances) get in the way.
05:58:53 <Mike J> I missed the discussions earlier. Did you get to Steamboat at all?
06:01:31 <Dave from B™> No, it erupted the night before the day we were headed there
06:02:06 <Dave from B™> My son graduates from high school this weekend so I'm not sure when I'll attempt again
06:03:10 <Dave from B™> My 6 nite trip begins June 25. I was hoping to get Steamboat before that trip so I could concentrate on Giant
06:03:24 <Mike J> I've been trying to figure out timing coming from Phoenix. Looks like it may have to wait until July
06:03:53 <Mike J> One of these days I need to concentrate on timing a trip so I can finally meet some of you guys.
06:04:25 <Bill K.> Morning all
06:04:43 <Dave from B™> Mike...Labor Day is the easiest time to meet people
06:04:49 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill K
06:06:33 <Kevin L™> Speaking of Pixar, is it just me or does this guy look like he could have escaped from a Pixar movie?
06:07:37 <Mike J> Kevin, that is great. I can see the poster now. "First there was Cars. Then there wase Planes. Now, brace yourself for the excitement of Trains"
06:07:55 <Dave from B™> Looks like a train with glasses
06:07:57 <Mike J> Or better yet "This isn't your children's Thomas the Tank Engine"
06:08:17 <Bill K.> New data for Steamboat, Steam Valve, and Echinus.
06:08:25 <Kevin L™> That could be a fun movie.
06:08:26 <Bill K.> Covering the last eruption
06:09:12 <Kevin L™> Nice Bill. Hopefully it will cooperate better on the next eruption.
06:09:14 <Bill K.>
06:09:22 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Bill. How did this eruption compare to others this year?
06:09:48 <Bill K.> Honestly, I haven't had a chance to evaluate it yet.
06:10:14 <Jimbo Bromine> Morning. Kilauea cam is bright right now!
06:15:56 <Dave from B™> Grand 0812
06:16:16 <Kevin L™> Needs a foghorn.
06:17:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Morning all
06:18:05 <Dave from B™> Good afternoon DG
06:22:55 <Kevin L™> That looks like it could have been a 2nd
06:23:22 <Kevin L™> Hope we have feet on the ground.
06:23:54 <Dave from B™> Jim S is there
06:24:17 <Eric> Morning
06:24:29 <Kevin L™> Morning.
06:25:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill, what's the difference between the Steamboat Geyser B and Steamboat Geyser T loggers?
06:25:23 <Bill K.> Good question
06:25:53 <Bill K.> T is in the Tree near the USGS logger. It's in the main outflow so it almost always is getting input directly from water.
06:26:24 <Bill K.> B is under the Boardwalk and is under some sediment. It only responds to major events because it's not in the main outflow.
06:27:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks :)
06:27:17 <Kevin L™> That was a 2nd on Grand.
06:27:30 <Rice> I was wondering if the Washburn South static Cam shows either Upper or Norris Gyser basin?
06:27:36 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G2Q | 10m41s
06:27:54 <Eric> are way far east at washburn Riice
06:28:24 <Eric> You can see steam from the mud volcano area though
06:28:27 <Rice> Darn, I konw you can see Steam, but was not sure from what areas
06:29:06 <Eric> I should make a helper image for that cam and the steam you can see on it.
06:29:31 <Rice> Was hoping you could pick up a Giant or Steamboat eruption from the Webcam archieve
06:29:34 <Eric> I think it has 3 or 4 thermal areas in it's view
06:29:42 <Eric> I wish :-D
06:30:07 <Rice> That would be nice, I have a rough idea which way it looks, but not 100%
06:30:58 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Based on the T logger, Steamboat's May 19 eruption lasted for roughly 2½m
06:31:29 <ynpvisitor999®> and started @ 2146
06:31:43 <Dave from B™> That seems really short
06:33:35 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
06:33:57 <Jimbo Bromine> What's behind and to the left of Old Faithful (on Geyser Hill)? Plate?
06:34:40 <Dave from B™> Pump?
06:34:50 <Kevin L™> Probably is Jimbo.
06:35:00 <Kevin L™> Pump is right.
06:35:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Pump is more to the right
06:35:09 <Jimbo Bromine> Pump was the other name I couldn't think of
06:35:18 <ynpvisitor999®> you're probably looking at Plate, Jimbo
06:35:24 <Jimbo Bromine> Thx
06:37:01 <ynpvisitor999®> This is the graph from the Steamboat T logger:
06:37:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside?
06:37:22 <ynpvisitor999®> no, not in window yet
06:44:21 <Rice> Washburn south cam was a nice watch from yesterday, fog, sun, rain, sun, rain. And some Thermal Steam.
06:48:36 <Dave from B™> Washburn Hot Springs is the closest thermal area to the cam
06:59:02 <ynpvisitor999®> and here is my rough analysis:
07:02:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:07:51 <Eric> what steam is that?
07:08:52 <Bill K.> OOh! Good news! The camera wasn't dead when Steamboat went off. The IR imagery leaves a lot to be desired, but you can definitely see it go off.
07:09:42 <ynpvisitor999®> nice
07:10:26 <Bill K.> I'll see about sharing it. It's not that impressive on the camera, but still worth seeing.
07:10:38 <ynpvisitor999®> isn't that the Myriad Creek behind the steam?
07:11:36 <Dave from B™> Eric, I'm not sure. runoff from OF?
07:11:45 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look on the GT map
07:13:03 <Dave from B™> SC pushing water?
07:16:21 <ynpvisitor999®> OF runoff seems a bit unlikely, as the last eruption happened an hour before we saw steam there, Eric
07:16:55 <Eric> Yes, and it's quite heavy steam
07:17:09 <ynpvisitor999®> this could be something entirely new
07:17:29 <ynpvisitor999®> some dead plants there too
07:18:26 <Art> Isn't that a downed tree?
07:18:33 <Eric> That is OF runoff channel
07:18:52 <Eric> But I don't remember steam there before
07:19:08 <Art> Looks like some boardwalk got put down?
07:19:12 <ynpvisitor999®> but wouldn't the water be cooled to near ambient temperature now?
07:19:23 <Eric> Man...the brightness from kilauea static cam is amazing
07:19:43 <ynpvisitor999®> new boardwalk looks good
07:20:02 <Eric> Wonder if they will try to finish before friday.
07:20:37 <Dave from B™> The laying boards seems to be going quickly
07:22:00 <Dave from B™> laying of boards*
07:22:36 <Rice> It is amazing how bad we type on here, isn't it?
07:23:03 <Eric> Actually, looking at the map, the run off channel is between those trees and the BW, that steam was on far side of trees
07:23:35 <Eric> which is deceptively far.
07:23:42 <ynpvisitor999®> needs investigation
07:25:13 <ynpvisitor999®> if it is a new thermal feature, to which group should it belong?
07:42:50 <Jimbo Bromine> Make sure you spell boards right, Dave
07:45:07 <Dave from B™> haha Jimbo
07:45:59 <Kevin L™> Lion waking up.
07:46:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
07:46:26 <ynpvisitor999®> nice surprise for the OF watchers
07:47:10 <ynpvisitor999®> quite a fluffy Lion too
07:47:43 <Kevin L™> At least I will have something to do today.
07:48:56 <ynpvisitor999®> next Lion @ 1105 ± 10m if series continues
07:49:38 <Dave from B™> Eric, are you driving to YNP in 1 or 2 days?
07:50:58 <Jimbo Bromine> While we're watching geysers, the lava flow in Hawaii might mess up the Puna Geothermal Ventures site and release hydrogen sulfide - as if they needed another gas to worry about.
07:51:31 <Kevin L™> I love the chicken.
07:51:47 <Eric> I am flying into bozeman friday night Dave
07:51:56 <Jimbo Bromine> I'm waiting for the video to fire up this morning
07:51:56 <ynpvisitor999®> you mean 'Rusty the Lava Rooster', Kevin?
07:52:10 <Eric> Haha...everyone loves Rusty DG :-)
07:52:20 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
07:52:28 <Kevin L™> That is the one DG
07:52:53 <Eric> Even has his own facebook page :-P
07:53:30 <Eric> How late does the OF lodge desk stay open?
07:53:33 <Kevin L™> BTW when I went out to the depot this morning there were a couple of quail with about 8 little ones. Totally adorable.
07:53:56 <Jimbo Bromine> Quail in Arizona?
07:54:00 <Eric> I probably won't get to OF until around midnight.
07:54:07 <Dave from B™> ERic, I forgot you were flying.
07:54:25 <Kevin L™> Nevada. And yes there are quail in Arizona too!
07:55:46 <Jimbo Bromine> That's right, Vegas. Is the depot out in the country?
07:55:57 <Kevin L™> I don't know the hours but I think that they leave a phone where you can call and someone from the Inn comes up and checks you in.
07:56:10 <Kevin L™> It is in my backyard.
07:56:55 <Kevin L™> It is a 16'x40' building that houses a den and my woodshop.
08:01:21 <Jimbo Bromine> Got it. We don't have quite that, but we did have finch nests in each of the hanging planters on the front porch. One of them had five eggs - tight fit!
08:01:58 <ynpvisitor999®> steaming between the trees below
08:02:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle seemed to have stopped
08:02:42 <Kevin L™> Wow. I also have some hummingbirds nesting. I went to swat what I thought was a moth and it was a baby hummingbird.
08:03:54 <Kevin L™> Still has a dip by the wheelbarrow.
08:04:38 <Kevin L™> Gee, using a hammer? I didn't think that was done anymore.
08:06:13 <ynpvisitor7> Bruce J must not have left the park. He just posted Artemisia
08:06:19 <ynpvisitor999®> what fissure is located to the left of the Kilauea static?
08:06:34 <Jimbo Bromine> I can't figure that out. Might be 6.
08:09:47 <Eric> fissures 22 & 20 are above and to the left of Puna Geo, off screen....I can't tell if those are fires or new fissures that are showing now.
08:10:06 <Eric> Has grotto been going since last night?
08:10:35 <Eric> ohhh, that is probably artemesia we are seeing, not grotto :-P
08:16:45 <Dave from B™> I'd sure like to know what was up with the 10hr8min Riverside interval from 5/19
08:20:12 <Jimbo Bromine> Looks like lava at far left, Eric
08:21:24 <Jimbo Bromine> Just tuned into the live stream - Rusty is still there
08:22:40 <Dave from B™> I'm missing the inside joke
08:23:01 <Kevin L™> You have to watch the feed with the sound on.
08:24:11 <Dave from B™> You talking about the Honolulu Civic beat feed?
08:24:18 <Jimbo Bromine> Yes
08:24:30 <Jimbo Bromine>
08:25:26 <Dave from B™> Thanks...I heard it
08:26:01 <Jimbo Bromine> He goes all day
08:26:22 <Dave from B™> I take it he isn't happy?
08:26:33 <Eric> Yep...between that and the gas house is pretty noisy 24/7 now :-P
08:26:54 <Kevin L™> He is a rooster. They do that. TRUST ME!
08:26:56 <Dave from B™> Maybe it's Henny Penny?
08:27:21 <Eric> That is why Roosters are usually illegal for urban farmers :-P
08:28:21 <Jimbo Bromine> We live in amazing times
08:29:59 <Kevin L™> I live in one of the few areas that they are allowed but they do make you get rid of it if they get too noisy. I had one that decided to crow at 2am steady. He died of lead poisoning.
08:31:08 <Jimbo Bromine> Was he still tasty? >(
08:31:41 <Kevin L™> Not bad. A bit small. Young banty.
08:37:50 <ynpvisitor999®> how did he ended up with lead poisoning anyway?
08:37:57 <ynpvisitor999®> end up*
08:38:20 <Kevin L™> :)
08:38:58 <Kevin L™> Let's just say it was 40 grains of lead injected at high speed....
08:40:11 <ynpvisitor999®> someone shot it?
08:40:26 <Kevin L™> Could be.
08:40:38 <Jimbo Bromine> I thought he could have avoided lead poisoning if he hadn't crowed at 2 AM.
08:41:03 <Kevin L™> Yep. Roosters are their own worst enemies.
08:42:04 <ynpvisitor999®> I had to think there a little
08:43:04 <Jimbo Bromine> I thought Kevin could have said he died from a neck problem
08:43:12 <ynpvisitor999®> ominous cloud on the Kilauea static
08:43:23 <Kevin L™> That would work too.
08:44:19 <Kevin L™> I wish the Kilauea cam would change to day mode.
08:44:51 <Jimbo Bromine> Any time now
08:45:42 <Kevin L™> It will be interesting to see if we get a lava glow.
08:45:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Kilauea in color
08:46:12 <ynpvisitor999®> lava glow (maybe even fountains) are visible
08:46:21 <Kevin L™> Nice!
08:46:36 <ynpvisitor117> riverside
08:47:27 <Kevin L™> I wonder if the lava hitting the ocean is making storm clouds like the forest fires do.
08:48:53 <Jimbo Bromine> Not hot enough, but can generate little waterspouts
08:49:12 <Jimbo Bromine> We discussed this a couple of days ago, there's a great picture online
08:49:45 <Kevin L™> Those were pretty awesome.
08:49:53 <Jimbo Bromine> Day mode! Fires visible, can't tell about the flow
08:50:29 <Jimbo Bromine> But what else would be igniting the fires?
08:50:59 <Kevin L™> Maybe Rusty is an arsonist?
08:51:56 <Dave from B™> fires ignited by a gas of some sort?
08:53:27 <Kevin L™> Perhaps molten lava?
08:53:51 <ynpvisitor999®> how about [s]lightning[/s] electricity from the sky?
08:54:39 <Betty> morn ing all
08:54:48 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
08:54:58 <Kevin L™> He llo Betty
08:55:02 <Betty> even ing DG
08:55:41 <Betty> I have a hiccup
08:56:46 <Betty> still no Giant? bummer
08:57:22 <Kevin L™> Not even a note today. :(
08:58:34 <Betty> hi Kevin, btw
09:04:07 <Mike J> Giant got jealous of all the attention Steamboat was getting and went away to sulk.
09:04:55 <ynpvisitor999®> poor Giant :( Needs some love
09:07:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 1106
09:12:32 <ynpvisitor999®> next Lion @ 1216 ± 10m, if series continues
09:13:13 <ynpvisitor45> maybe F & M will wake up and give gazers another UGB focus
09:15:27 <ynpvisitor45> So Grand erupted on a Turban cycle that was at least 30 minutes. Crazy
09:16:06 <ynpvisitor45> good example of tourists being sheep at West Gate right now
09:21:29 <Kevin L™> Grotto
09:22:50 <Kevin L™> Looks like BruceJ is still there.
09:25:32 <Eric> I think that red we see is just lava burning trees...I have heard of no new fissures opening, especially ones not on the rift.
09:26:48 <ynpvisitor999®> if I recall correctly, there were some older 2018 fissures that reactivated recently
09:28:43 <ynpvisitor999®> one of those is fissure 6, according to the most recent map
09:29:16 <Betty> hi ge and Eric
09:33:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:40:11 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:46:10 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1140
09:46:25 <ynpvisitor45> does not sound very strong
09:46:29 <ynpvisitor999®> only Feather and SW vents
09:46:56 <ynpvisitor999®> with the SW vents going, is it likely the next Giant could be a south function?
09:52:03 <ynpvisitor999®> BHCCI 1149
09:53:32 <ynpvisitor999®> BHI and BH should be soon
09:54:03 <Dave from B™> This will help you
09:54:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope so :)
09:54:22 <Betty> bah
09:54:40 <Kevin L™> Lot of customers at the BHI spot.
09:54:49 <Betty> it should learn to erupt when you are around
10:03:34 <ynpvisitor45> we are due for a BH without indy
10:03:51 <Betty> LC
10:06:27 <Art> BH has been fairly well behaved lately, long indy's
10:09:23 <ynpvisitor45> it has, that is why it is due to change
10:11:50 <Art> Sorry meant that as a statement not in response to the no indy comment ;)
10:12:26 <Betty> Kilauea is in our evening prime news
10:19:08 <Kevin L™> Was the chicken on it?
10:21:05 <Eric> Was it the young guy from CNN in front of the lava fountain?
10:31:33 <Betty> no. Rusty was not heard and there was no CNN guy
10:32:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Depression starting?
10:32:39 <ynpvisitor999®> nice burst
10:32:52 <Kevin L™> Good catch
10:33:20 <Betty> yeah
10:33:57 <Kevin L™> Strong Depression
10:35:27 <ynpvisitor999®> we missed Aurum
10:35:37 <ynpvisitor999®> 1233
10:35:48 <Kevin L™> :p
10:36:01 <ynpvisitor999®> blame Depression!
10:36:15 <ynpvisitor999®> or me, for catching Dep
10:42:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy

10:42:35 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:42:44 <Betty> no problem DG. Kevin would have missed it anyway due to a potty break, grab some food etc
10:43:44 <Betty> getting ready for the show :-)
10:44:58 <ynpvisitor116> yay indy
10:45:04 <Kevin L™> At least the wind is blowing the right way.
10:45:29 <Betty> hi Kitt. ready for the park?
10:46:01 <Eric> BHI :-D
10:46:15 <Kitt> not yet
10:46:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion series seems to have ended
10:47:13 <ynpvisitor67> thanks for the text!!
10:50:08 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
10:50:14 <Eric> look up lava news guys on facebook...running around with cell phones broadcasting in the new active lava areas.
10:51:20 <ynpvisitor117> LC
10:51:34 <Dave from B™> Pfew
10:51:54 <ynpvisitor999®> welcome back
10:52:10 <Dave from B™> homeless convention at BH
10:52:43 <ynpvisitor117> BH
10:52:51 <ynpvisitor117> sorry
10:54:10 <ynpvisitor117> To be PC the park should supply howsing for those homeless :)
10:54:30 <ynpvisitor117> housing*
10:54:43 <Rice> Howlsing?
10:55:14 <Dave from B™> 117, you trying to push my buttons?:D
10:56:14 <Eric> should go any moment!
10:56:26 <ynpvisitor67> :bee:

10:58:23 <Art> Indiana Jones
10:58:49 <ynpvisitor57> I see it, but what is it...
10:58:59 <ynpvisitor117> I must have a 1min+ lag
10:59:08 <ynpvisitor57> oh, no comment..
10:59:11 <ynpvisitor67> plumbing system icon?
10:59:12 <Eric> That is a nice tall BH
10:59:13 <Kevin L™> Indy is this weekend.
10:59:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee went inside the OF window, so lots of people should see the eruption
10:59:40 <Betty> choppy as usual :-(
10:59:52 <Kevin L™> No NPS predictions today.
10:59:57 <Eric> Hope I get a few nice bees like that one!
11:05:54 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
11:06:04 <Kitt> bye all , back to chores
11:06:13 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Kitt
11:06:40 <Dave from B™> AC is on for the first time this year
11:09:19 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... either short or medium
11:09:35 <Kevin L™> Looked long to me
11:10:39 <Kevin L™> We will see in about an hour.
11:11:58 <ynpvisitor29> The last OF was a long
11:12:21 <ynpvisitor29> duration was greater than 3m15s
11:40:48 <Betty> LC I think
11:45:19 <Betty> new SpaceX launch?
11:45:48 <ge>
11:47:43 <Kevin L™> It doesn't have a chicken
11:48:38 <Betty> there it goes
11:53:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban 1351
11:54:59 <Kevin L™> Amazing how we can watch Yellowstone, a volcano in Hawaii, and a rocket launch all at the same time!
12:03:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:12:57 <ynpvisitor999®> no water visible in Cistern and Steamboat very quiet
12:13:10 <ynpvisitor999®> both are steaming gently
12:15:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
12:15:41 <Kevin L™> Tall start
12:16:19 <Kevin L™> looks like another long Turban.
12:16:22 <ynpvisitor999®> not in OF window, that's rare
12:23:04 <Kevin L™> 8m
12:23:25 <Jimbo Bromine> time check
12:25:17 <Jimbo Bromine> Sure looked big there
12:25:33 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe a 2nd sneaked in there
12:25:42 <Jimbo Bromine> need ground intel
12:26:01 <Kevin L™> Think it is just one of those tall bursts the rob us of a 2nd.
12:26:10 <Eric> Robbed!
12:27:10 <Kevin L™> That killed it!
12:27:24 <Kevin L™> 1st stage shutdown....
12:27:39 <ynpvisitor999®> 12-13 minutes
12:27:53 <Jimbo Bromine> Sometimes 2nd bursts do look like launches
12:28:03 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q
12:28:16 <ynpvisitor999®> 11m58s
12:28:29 <Kevin L™> I know they can look like nuclear bombs.
12:28:36 <Jimbo Bromine> Decent show
12:28:51 <Kevin L™> I'll take it.
12:29:27 <Eric> are small cookstoves allowed on the BW? I wouldn't mind heating up water at norris.
12:29:40 <ynpvisitor999®> USGS just posted a thermal map of the lavaflows in Hawai'i:
12:29:56 <Kevin L™> I don't think they are Eric.
12:29:59 <Eric> Guess I could walk up to museum and make hot cider.
12:30:51 <Eric> Those are not very current DG...was watching live footage about an hour ago and fissures 5,13 & 6 are now quite active.
12:31:08 <Jimbo Bromine> Thanks 999. Helps put the flows in their place, except for the new activity overnight and this morning near the PGV.
12:31:11 <Kevin L™> There are some cups that will heat water from you car and keep it warm.
12:31:21 <ynpvisitor999®> should've looked better, May 21 @ 1215
12:31:30 <Eric> ohh, that is an interesting idea Kevin
12:32:46 <Eric> They have power at the museum...any outlets you could plug a hot water heater into?
12:32:49 <Kevin L™>
12:34:23 <Kevin L™> I did notice that ships from Hong Kong but I think Walmart has something similar.
12:35:33 <Eric> Yes, none of them look very good :-(
12:36:05 <Eric> Just trying to think how I will keep warm/comfortable at norris late at night :-D
12:37:33 <Kevin L™> You would think with these mega batteries for power tools that they would have something like that you could attach to.
12:37:38 <ynpvisitor999®> OF doesn't seem like it wants to do a long
12:37:50 <Eric> Just looked it can carry hand warmers on airplanes :-D
12:38:12 <Eric> It takes a LOT of power to produce heat
12:38:35 <Eric> Going to bring a box of those break and warm hand warmers.
12:38:43 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
12:39:05 <Eric> substantial heat
12:39:58 <Kevin L™> If this will start a car, it should boil a cup of water:
12:40:12 <Kevin L™> Not that big either.
12:46:14 <Eric> maybe kevin....that is burst capacitance, not sustained. But IANANEE
12:49:17 <Kevin L™> True but I would think it would have enough power in it to do a cup or two of hot water.
13:07:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle 1501
13:07:26 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
13:08:04 <ge> Bye to all. Hope to see some of you this weekend.
13:08:06 <Kevin L™> Good Knight Betty.
13:08:22 <Kevin L™> Bye ge. Good luck.
13:09:04 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty and ge
13:11:38 <Dave from B™> Hi and bye ge
13:11:52 <Dave from B™> Was stuck in a productive meeting for 90 minutes
13:12:23 <Kevin L™> Don't you hate bosses who schedule 90m meetings?
13:13:19 <Dave from B™> Meeting with a company to start a new route to Big sky, West, Ennis and maybe Jackson
13:14:44 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be a powerful Castle
13:14:56 <Kevin L™> Sounds good but busy. You gonna need a new truck?
13:15:20 <Dave from B™> Nope...someone else picks up here and delivers for me
13:15:33 <Kevin L™> That isn't bad.
13:15:43 <Dave from B™> He is going to represent 10 smaller vendors and help seel product
13:18:13 <Kent> Dave, U B good guy. Very happy things going well. Hope things continue swimmingly :)
13:18:41 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kent
13:31:59 <Dave from B™> Kevin, no hockey for Knights until Monday
13:32:17 <Kevin L™> :)
13:32:59 <Kevin L™> What is amazing is to lose the Stanley Cup, they have to lose more games than they did in the first 3 series!
13:41:05 <ynpvisitor30> Dave, who will you root for?
13:42:07 <Kevin L™> I am hoping for a Caps Knights series.
13:42:37 <Dave from B™> Caps Knights would be a tough choice. Knights if Caps lose Thursday
13:44:27 <Kevin L™> I think there are a few people in town that put a bet on the Knights at the beginning of the season that are sure hoping they win. 500 to 1 odds.
13:45:31 <Dave from B™> That would be a nice ticket to have
13:49:12 <Kevin L™> You can bet there were quite a few people that put a bet on that just to have a copy of the ticket!
14:10:41 <ynpvisitor1320> Does anyone know if it is possible to put your nickname in the URL so you don't have to type it in every time?
14:15:19 <Eric> Yes, with enough paypal donations to my account I can add that for you :-P
14:16:13 <Dave from B™> When I change my name, all my old selections pop up and choose the one that is spelled correctly:)
14:16:46 <ynpvisitor1320> lol
14:16:51 <Eric> Make that patron site hit $75 and I will look into it on my return in a couple weeks.
14:17:28 <Dave from B™> Pretty soon my name will have (xx) behind it:)
14:18:20 <Eric> I get none of that money, but it helps GT, chat and mobile apps for for expenses.
14:18:33 <Eric> pay for expenses
14:18:37 <XxMlG2PiNoScOpE> you mean like this
14:19:58 <Eric (3)> :-D
14:20:20 <Eric> hmmm
14:20:37 <Eric (3)> One more try
14:21:08 <Dave from B™> nice number
14:22:14 <Eric (3)> Thanks....I look forward to when it says (0) :-D
14:24:21 <Dave from B™> I hope you at least get 1 of the biggies during your trip
14:25:04 <ynpvisitor45> Dave, you did not ask the water question to the list serve
14:25:17 <ynpvisitor45> or Google Group, or whatever it is now called
14:25:32 <ynpvisitor45> GO KNIGHTS
14:25:59 <ynpvisitor45> oh, not time for that yet. They are still playing someone else, right?
14:26:03 <ALL CAPS (4)> assuming thats the days to arriving at Steamboat
14:26:08 <ALL CAPS (4)> i leave in 3
14:26:11 <Dave from B™> 45, thanks for the reminder. I'll try to do it soon
14:26:38 <ALL CAPS (4)> i read the nites, will be interesting to see how it progresses this time
14:26:40 <ynpvisitor45> I am curious what the answer is. No one puts their names on their posts on that site though, it is confusing who is saying what.
14:26:44 <Kevin L™> 4? That is the number of games the Knights have to win to get the Stanley Cup!
14:27:04 <ALL CAPS (4)> ha! its 5 for the caps
14:27:15 <ynpvisitor45> or one to go home
14:27:22 <ALL CAPS (4)> NOOOOO
14:27:57 <Kevin L™> The Knights have only lost 3 playoff games.
14:28:03 <ALL CAPS (4)> are the games every other day? CAPS will be winners by the time I get back :)
14:28:19 <Kevin L™> Starts Monday.
14:28:36 <ALL CAPS (4)> yeah, 4 games, every other day, CAPS win sunday
14:28:44 <ALL CAPS (4)> 4-0
14:29:02 <ALL CAPS (4)> assuming tomorrow is a W too
14:29:31 <ynpvisitor45> where is game 7 played?
14:29:46 <Kevin L™> Probably Tampa
14:29:54 <Eric (3)> Well, if for some strange reason steamboat stays at the exact interval as the last, it would show up on 5/26 I believe.
14:29:58 <ALL CAPS (4)> its away, so we have the advantage
14:30:11 <Eric (3)> 5/26 @15:45
14:30:26 <ynpvisitor45> I thought the last interval would make it Friday
14:30:31 <ALL CAPS (4)> that would be nice. i expect to arrive around 0800
14:30:55 <ALL CAPS (4)> based on past it will be in the dark tho
14:30:57 <Eric (3)> I plan on getting up early on 5/26 and heading to Norris for the long haul.
14:31:01 <ALL CAPS (4)> bring flashlights
14:31:26 <Kevin L™> Don't forget raingear.
14:31:27 <ALL CAPS (4)> will be crowded there i bet
14:31:27 <Eric (3)> Yep...have hand warmers, thermos, rain gear and long johns :-D
14:31:36 <ynpvisitor45> hopefully it does not go back to 8 days or you will have a long sit
14:32:09 <ALL CAPS (4)> i am hoping it doesnt go to 15 days
14:32:16 <Eric (3)> We probably will 45, but for steamboat...I will do my best.
14:32:18 <ynpvisitor45> high 60's for both days
14:32:22 <ALL CAPS (4)> or go at night
14:32:42 <ynpvisitor45> I have a feeling this weekend, someone will be there 24/7
14:33:07 <ALL CAPS (4)> yeah probably Sat .. may be harder SUn as it might rain
14:33:17 <ALL CAPS (4)> and peeps will be tired
14:33:27 <ynpvisitor45> it will be interesting to see what is happening, as DG says the majors only last 2 1/2 minutes yet Beverlys thought it was still erupting at 2210
14:33:52 <ALL CAPS (4)> they said it was in noisy steam
14:33:59 <ynpvisitor999®> those are likely post-eruptive water phases
14:34:22 <Eric (3)> I ordered an extra thick, long rubber poncho to make a temporary tent with :-D
14:34:25 <BenVL> speaking of that... I can only find the NPS data up to April 28. DG, how did oyu find the rest of the data?
14:34:54 <BenVL> you*
14:34:56 <Eric (3)> Yes, Bill has been feeding it to us via his google drive account.
14:35:01 <ynpvisitor999®> This is from NPS employee Bill K.
14:35:08 <ynpvisitor45> will there be any space on the platform, it will be interesting
14:35:09 <ALL CAPS (4)> looks like the pattern now is water, then roaring steam, then transitions back to water althoigh not as high as at the start
14:35:11 <ynpvisitor999®> and contains a 'few' logger files
14:35:54 <ynpvisitor45> I hope it goes in daylight and LOTS of happy Memorial Day weekend gazers get to see it
14:36:11 <ALL CAPS (4)> the 2 1/2m of water may be the key to its regularity and mixed phase eruptions now, has water still in reserve
14:36:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I use the Steamboat T logger - that's the one on a tree that responds to daylight temperatures and minors and majors
14:36:56 <BenVL> Ok, thanks.
14:36:57 <ALL CAPS (4)> even when its in steam phase it puts out a lot of water vapor and continues to drop water and gravel
14:37:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll post a link to a folder in which I put my analysis
14:37:54 <ALL CAPS (4)> at least it did in 2014 - my clothing was covered in gravel having arrived 2h later and stayed through the night. boardwalks were treacherously slick at sunrise
14:38:33 <ALL CAPS (4)> and the steam phase roar is tremendous
14:38:41 <ynpvisitor999®> here you go
14:39:01 <ynpvisitor45> some of these eruptions have not had that loud roar, yet the last one did
14:39:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I should've worded some bits a bit different, but I hope you get the point
14:39:59 <ALL CAPS (4)> this was the sound 3h after the start in 2014
14:40:38 <ALL CAPS (4)> notice you can hear me right by the camera but not the people standing close to me
14:40:38 <BenVL> thanks!
14:41:53 <ynpvisitor999®> that's loud
14:42:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope I can be there one day and witness an eruption and a subsequent steam phase
14:42:34 <ALL CAPS (4)> yep. theres another video i posted 8h post E and its a lot quieter
14:43:28 <ALL CAPS (4)> and thats 3h in, i wonder what 20m would be like
14:43:50 <ynpvisitor999®> deafening?
14:43:58 <ALL CAPS (4)>
14:44:17 <ALL CAPS (4)> thats the other one, on the lower platform so a bit further away but not much
14:44:27 <ALL CAPS (4)> with will talking about it
14:46:50 <ALL CAPS (4)> i went to bed when the caps were ahead by 2 ... figured that was safe
14:47:14 <ALL CAPS (4)> wish game 7 was starting earlier ... i need to bank some sleep this week :)
14:48:51 <ALL CAPS (4)> gee i see a hiker had a fatal fall from Half Dome cables already
14:49:26 <Kevin L™> Did you see the bike rider in Washington that was killed by a cougar?
14:49:51 <ALL CAPS (4)> hum, first one since 2011
14:50:08 <ALL CAPS (4)> yikes, no
14:50:47 <ALL CAPS (4)> i did see an amazing photo on FB of a couger in Antelope Canyon - stunning shot of it perched looking out at the organge canyon curves
14:51:19 <ALL CAPS (4)> was taken by Norbert Rosen who was in Yellowstone in 1997 and saw Giant
14:51:30 <Kevin L™>
14:53:01 <ALL CAPS (4)> at least iyt was easy to find the couger with it standing over the dead man
15:01:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
15:06:30 <Dave from B™> Have a great evening everyone...time to wrap up the market
15:06:41 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Dave
15:06:51 <Kevin L™> Good Knight
15:07:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:07:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy is saying Dave goodbye
16:17:37 <kcmule> sucks to not have a game tonight. you couldn't win it in 6 for us KL ?
16:17:57 <Kevin L™> We don't like to lose
16:18:05 <Kevin L™> Crab fishing is on.
16:21:27 <ALL CAPS (4)> Kevin is being selfish
16:22:21 <Kevin L™> In order to lose the Stanley cup we have to lose more games than we did in the first 3 series.
16:23:02 <ALL CAPS (4)> sounds like you are throwing down a gauntlet to me
16:23:44 <Kevin L™> Well we did lose as many games in the first 3 series as the Caps have lost in this series...
16:30:28 <ALL CAPS (4)> we are battle hardened while the Knights are still soft and wont know how to come back from defeats
16:33:08 <Kevin L™> Your one plus is you would have 4 away games....
16:33:24 <Kevin L™> BUT, we win at home.
16:33:58 <ALL CAPS (4)> we win away ....and are on a 6 game streak
16:35:14 <Artt> As a Bruins fan please just beat the Lightning, thank you ;)
16:37:28 <Kevin L™> :)
16:47:47 <Kevin L™> Lion ie
17:07:16 <kcmule> aurum
17:07:18 <kcmule> .
17:07:19 <kcmule> .
17:08:14 <Kevin L™> :p
17:08:46 <ALL CAPS (4)> nice
17:08:54 <Kevin L™> Got it on static
17:10:57 <ALL CAPS (4)> ftn doing shorter durations and intervals. weird Clep off before ftn but not a stall
17:13:19 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see what Steamboat does tomorrow
17:16:37 <Artt> Eager to see interval from Cistern refill to eruption
17:18:14 <Artt> Gotta dig through cistern notes to see what that interval looked like last couple
17:42:32 <ALL CAPS (4)> see you ...... and i am hoping for a great day tomorrow with a CAPS win and then Steamboat on Sat afternoon .... how hard can that be?
17:42:37 <ALL CAPS (4)> goodnight
17:47:25 <Kevin L™> Good Knight
18:01:38 <Kent> Lion
18:51:34 <ynpvisitor35> Grand
19:01:31 <Kevin L™> Looks like another 1b
19:03:56 <Kevin L™> Something in Grotto area
19:05:52 <Kevin L™> Grotto at 2026 so it may be Rocket
19:10:06 <ynpvisitor35> Lion
19:21:10 <ynpvisitor99> Kevin, did you go to the basin for the last OF?
19:21:41 <Kevin L™> Quick trip, Had Scotty beam me over.
