03:52:22 <ynpvisitor35> 2nd
04:15:36 <ynpvisitor74> GIANT signs rolled
04:27:19 <ynpvisitor117> Possible Giant 0224
04:28:44 <ynpvisitor117> 0223
04:29:50 <ynpvisitor102> nice
04:37:06 <lc> just wondering. how you get a start time 0223 from signs rolled at 0607?
04:38:45 <ynpvisitor74> it means he went and looked at the capture based on Jim's note at 0607
04:39:00 <ynpvisitor117> Looked at GOSA overnight capture start 0223
04:40:39 <lc> ok, I just couldn't make the connection.
04:44:47 <ynpvisitor74> you could say confirmed by signs rolled, as opposed to based on - that was the confusion I think
04:45:24 <ynpvisitor117> OK will do thanks
04:49:36 <lc> probably just me, I didn't think about the captures for the start.
04:50:22 <lc> I do agree with you 74.
05:30:28 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone. Sorry to see Giant didn't wait for the holiday crowd
05:31:01 <lc> morning Dave
05:37:19 <Dave from B™> Hi lc
05:41:54 <Eric (2)> Evil geyser
05:41:56 <Eric (2)> Morning
05:42:25 <lc> morning Eric
05:42:38 <Eric (2)> daisy
05:43:24 <Dave from B™> sorry eric
05:43:33 <Eric (2)> :-(
05:45:19 <Eric (2)> Steamboat will probably go as I step off the plane too....
05:46:40 <Dave from B™> The clock at Steamboat shouldn't start until water is back in the system
05:47:23 <Eric (2)> cistern is full....clock started.
05:48:08 <Eric (2)> yesterday:
05:48:51 <Dave from B™> Eric, I was talking about water at Steamboat
05:49:34 <Eric (2)> If Steamboat stays consistent, it's about 3 days from filling that it erupts. But that is based on 2 data points
05:49:40 <Eric (2)> ahhh
05:51:54 <Dave from B™> Last cycle, once water was seen at Steamboat, it erupted about 38 hours later
05:52:58 <Dave from B™> I'm expecting water to be seen sometime today
05:54:20 <ynpvisitor74> there weren't long observations yesterday either
05:55:08 <Dave from B™> True and water could have started overnight as well
05:56:22 <Eric (2)> Fingers crossed, geyser dance done....hopefully it holds off until daylight Saturday.
05:56:22 <Rice> I like the comment " If Steamboat stays consistent"
05:56:39 <Rice> What Is Rule #1 about Geysers?
05:56:58 <Dave from B™> Geysers do what geyser do
05:57:50 <Rice> Have the words Steamboat and Consitent ever been used in the same sentence?
05:58:59 <lc> I was just thinking, are we really talking about Steamboat.
05:59:12 <Eric (2)> Steamboat has been amazingly consistent over the last 4 eruptions!
05:59:37 <Rice> I agree it has, but it just seems way to good to continue!
06:00:18 <lc> I wonder if the eruptions are like the "old" eruptions.
06:00:18 <Eric (2)> consistent until it isn't :-D
06:01:22 <Eric (2)> Poor bruce...missed Steamboat & Giant :-(
06:01:32 <ynpvisitor74> 1960's was consistent, yes.
06:01:47 <lc> I watched the capture from last night, never would have thought that was Giant.
06:03:35 <Dave from B™> Do you think once or twice a year Steamboats are much larger than weekly Steamboats...and likewise regarding Giant?
06:04:58 <lc> don't know
06:05:52 <Eric (2)> looks like giant was preceded by a grotto, starting at 5/23 @ 2236
06:07:00 <Dave from B™> I don't see that on looking at captures?
06:07:14 <Eric (2)> who knows Dave...Steamboat might not erupt for another 30 years now!
06:07:27 <Eric (2)> Yes, from watching overnight stream
06:07:57 <Eric (2)> and I agree on that 0223 start time
06:09:15 <Eric (2)> I am going to call the lodge today and have them put a note that I might not check in on Friday night and to not cancel my reservation :-D
06:10:11 <Eric (2)> So is it faster to get to Norris from bozeman via mammoth or west?
06:10:15 <Dave from B™> The big question now is when will Giant erupt again?
06:11:37 <Dave from B™> Normally Mammoth but with the road construction....what time will you be hitting the road?
06:12:09 <Art> 117 miles (BZN to Norris via West) - 105 miles (BZN to Norris via Mammoth)
06:12:21 <Art> However, construction between Mammoth and Norris
06:12:43 <Eric (2)> Also...water tables being too high didn't seem to stop Giant...that was a read herring I believe.
06:12:52 <Eric (2)> red herring
06:13:00 <Dave from B™> Gallatin Canyon traffic and possible bison jam on West Ent Road have to be considered as well
06:13:05 <Art> Ton's of tourists between West and Norris (Elk/Bison jams)
06:13:22 <Eric (2)> going to be after 10pm when I hit the park
06:13:38 <Eric (2)> So I don't think traffic will be an issue coming in
06:14:03 <Dave from B™> I would go thru Mammoth
06:14:22 <Eric (2)> google maps looks like it agrees Dave
06:14:28 <Eric (2)> 15minutes faster
06:14:28 <ynpvisitor113> Go 191 through West entrance
06:14:50 <Dave from B™> If you want to go the other way, shop for groceries in Belgrade and don't go thru Bozeman to save time
06:15:04 <Eric (2)> That was my original plan 113 when going to OF
06:15:11 <ynpvisitor113> With construction area, coming in from West will be faster
06:15:36 <Eric (2)> Does construction area affect time at night?
06:15:39 <Dave from B™> Did you do mileage from airport, Eric?
06:15:48 <ynpvisitor74> this sounds like the "which side of Mt Washburn is the best hike" discussions
06:15:59 <Eric (2)> Yes, Dave...
06:16:03 <Dave from B™> south side:)
06:16:14 <Dave from B™> Better views of the Lake and Tetons
06:16:28 <Art> 2018 season: expect 30-minute delays beginning April 20, 2018 (excluding holiday weekends*). Norris and Indian Creek campgrounds will not be affected by this work. June 3 to October 8: additional nightly closures from 10 pm to 7 am (excluding Saturday nights and holiday weekends*)
06:17:15 <Art> *Holidays include Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekends.
06:17:22 <Eric (2)> Thanks Art...I assume Friday night will be considered the start of a holiday weekend
06:17:31 <ynpvisitor74> at 11pm the construction will be about 30mph
06:17:59 <Art> ynpvisitor74, Are they working nights right now or just days?
06:18:21 <Eric (2)> Hmmm, lots to chew on here. Was going to stop at walmart in bozeman to pick up a case of water and few other things.
06:19:19 <ynpvisitor74> dunno Art, just assuming no night closure this weekend
06:20:17 <ynpvisitor74> watch for animals on either route Eric (2)
06:20:33 <ynpvisitor113> If you are going INTO Bozeman definitely go to Mammoth. If you can shop at Albertsons in Belgrade, go to West
06:20:48 <Dave from B™> I agree 113
06:21:05 <Eric (2)> Thanks everyone!
06:21:07 <ynpvisitor113> That is what Graham does.
06:21:25 <ynpvisitor74> Walmart may be the only thing open after 10
06:21:40 <Art> Eric did your flight get bumped?
06:21:49 <ynpvisitor113> He may be rethinking his stay in Belgrade Friday night.
06:22:05 <Eric (2)> Well, I get in at 7:40 but have to get car and figured I wouldn't hit the park until about 10pm
06:22:06 <ynpvisitor113> Albertsons does not close
06:22:20 <Eric (2)> either direction
06:23:10 <ynpvisitor74> oh, hit the park, thought you were hitting the road from the airport at 10pm
06:23:17 <Art> We usually land in Belgrade, hit up Albertsons, stop at the Co-Op, grab a coffee and head to Gardiner/Mammoth, but then usually leave the park via West since it dumps us right on Jackrabbit near the airport where we usually stay
06:23:52 <Dave from B™> Be sure and pickup some fish at the CoOp:)
06:24:25 <ynpvisitor113> funny Dave
06:24:43 <ynpvisitor113> Coop will not be open
06:24:47 <Eric (2)> No...luckily I get in earlier than that 74. I was supposed to be an hour earlier still, but alaska shifted their flight :-(
06:25:13 <Art> We were able to get an earlier flight so should be in Bozeman at 1:30ish on Saturday
06:25:18 <Dave from B™> If I was really advertising, I would say shop at Town and country in Belgrade instead:)
06:25:55 <ynpvisitor113> It might be closed by then.
06:27:30 <Lead Man> Not as famous as Iron Man - but there was one'
06:27:32 <Dave from B™> Morning Jimbo
06:27:52 <Lead Man> Hi Dave
06:27:58 <ynpvisitor113> If Steamboat erupts before your arrival, will you still go?, or head to OF? Another reason to go via West
06:29:04 <lc> bbl
06:29:11 <Eric (2)> If steamboat doesn't sound imminent, I will probably head straight to bed at OF and go through West. For an early morning arrival @ norris.
06:29:23 <Dave from B™> Eric, beware, I think 113 works for West Chamber of Commerce:D
06:30:10 <Lead Man> Geez, Giant wasn't very nice to the visitors
06:30:16 <ynpvisitor113> As he will be spending zero dollars in West, that statement makes no sense...
06:30:25 <Eric (2)> Haha...I have done my fair share of dumping money into West's economy :-P
06:30:39 <Eric (2)> But not this trip.
06:31:21 <Eric (2)> Alright...gotta pack, bbl
06:31:33 <ynpvisitor113> Good luck which ever route you take. It will be a nice drive with the moon.
06:33:35 <ynpvisitor113> Bruce J must not be too happy, missing Steamboat and Giant
06:34:40 <Dave from B™> It seems Giant and Steamboat have gone in the dark quite a bit
06:38:29 <ynpvisitor113> Giant erupted again, that is the good part.
06:39:27 <Dave from B™> Do you think it is possible high water in Firehole can delay instead of turn off Giant altogether?
06:51:07 <Dave from B™> Morning Jake
06:51:46 <Jake> morning Dave, I forget if you're heading to YNP this weekend?
06:52:38 <Dave from B™> nope...Parker is graduating this weekend
06:53:12 <Jake> and they won't move the ceremony to the Steamboat platform...typical
06:53:26 <Dave from B™> Not enough parking
07:02:10 <Dave from B™> Good morning kc
07:06:59 <Eric (2)> ok...big guy + winter/wet clothing make for too much stuff!
07:07:15 <Eric (2)> I need a steamer trunk :-D
07:08:34 <Dave from B™> Eric, if you don't have enough space in your suitcase, just wear many many layers on the plane:)
07:09:04 <Eric (2)> It is crossing my mind Dave.
07:09:08 <Dave from B™> You'll probably even end up with an empty seat next to you!
07:09:33 <Eric (2)> My rain jacket takes up like half the might just be worn
07:09:39 <Dave from B™> Spring trips to YNP this time of year do require a lot of stuff
07:09:46 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope Giant doesn't go full Steamboat and erupts only when no-one is around to witness the start
07:12:49 <ynpvisitor999®> what's up with the JavaScript, Eric? Doesn't seem to load for me
07:13:21 <Eric (2)> Don't know...working here
07:13:39 <Eric (2)> also javascript is loading for you or you wouldn't be chating :-D
07:14:27 <ynpvisitor999®> either way, the widgets are in the wrong order, no background image and I can't collapse or move the widgets
07:14:51 <Eric (2)> try refreshing
07:14:56 <Dave from B™> Eric, there is a decent laundry in the Snow Lodge if that's an option
07:15:24 <Eric (2)> ohh, didn't know that Dave. Self serve?
07:15:34 <Dave from B™> yep
07:15:48 <Dave from B™> Sepnt some time there during a wet snowy trip once
07:16:04 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't fix it, Eric. Using FF 59.0.2 64 bit by the way
07:16:05 <Eric (2)> ok...well, I could do a laundry evening if I get in a jam
07:16:16 <Eric (2)> Try chrome DG
07:16:30 <Eric (2)> nothing has changed here
07:16:56 <Eric (2)> FYI...I sure don't like the look of the current steamboat logger data
07:17:05 <Eric (2)> Not consistent with previous data
07:18:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat logger seems to mirror Nuphar Lake logger, which also didn't spike yesterday
07:19:00 <Eric (2)> ahh, interesting...maybe rain keeping the temps down
07:19:30 <Eric (2)> you get things working yet DG?
07:19:53 <ynpvisitor999 C> yeah, but I like FF more than Chrome though
07:20:18 <ynpvisitor999 C> obviously HLS rather than live
07:20:22 <ynpvisitor999 C> ugh
07:21:25 <ynpvisitor999®> FF is live, though
07:21:31 <Eric (2)> I will check in FF in just a moment
07:21:52 <Art> We usually do Laundry either in Snow Lodge or at Swan's in West depending on whats going on GeyserWise
07:21:59 <Eric (2)> in chrome just go up to the (i) symbol near the url click it and tell it to allow flash for this page
07:22:28 <Eric (2)> that should get you rtmp instead of HLS stream
07:25:13 <ynpvisitor63> My FF everything works except the video :-P
07:26:44 <Dave from B™> I've heard of people going to Grant for laundry as well
07:26:53 <Dave from B™> I think lc has done that
07:27:12 <kc (working)> sorry, mornin' Dave. and Castle
07:28:01 <ynpvisitor999 C> Castle
07:28:43 <ynpvisitor999 C> Chrome isn't going to work for me though, as Flash doesn't stay enabled. It just disables itself everytime I reload the page
07:29:01 <ynpvisitor999 C> and I can't seem to find a way to keep it permanently enabled
07:29:09 <ynpvisitor63> Set to always allow flash on that page
07:29:29 <ynpvisitor63> Weird...I cannot get the video to work at all in my FF :-P
07:29:41 <ynpvisitor63> We have opposite issues
07:30:50 <ynpvisitor999 C> I apparently have it enabled permanently already, 63
07:31:04 <ynpvisitor999 C> yet it doesn't stay enabled
07:31:47 <ynpvisitor999 C> I'll have a look through the extensions, maybe there is an option available
07:32:58 <ynpvisitor999 C> nothing there, so FF it is
07:33:34 <ynpvisitor999®> might have to update FF then
07:38:08 <ynpvisitor999®> everything seems to be fixed after the update
07:38:50 <ynpvisitor63> awesome!
07:38:59 <Eric (2)> double awesome
07:41:59 <ynpvisitor999®> triple awesome actually: YT videos 1080p+ or 720p60+ play smoothly in 60.0.1. When I got 59.0.3(?) this wasn't the case, while it previously was
07:43:26 <Kevin L™> Another good one Eric:
07:47:45 <Eric (2)> I think they are looking at turning that route from portland to the coast into a trail.
07:48:32 <Eric (2)> Also, very nice shot :-D
07:49:49 <Rice> Ok, so if we are being railfans today, Here is the feed mill I work at:
07:49:51 <Eric (2)> looks like that guy does a lot of drone photography
07:50:34 <Micah>,00065,00010
07:50:45 <Kevin L™> Bummer. Needs tracks. Once tracks are torn up, it is almost impossible to get them back.
07:50:47 <Micah> Firehole's at bankful and Giant still erupted...Impressive.
07:51:33 <Jake> conclusion: Giant likes maximum water
07:51:44 <Jake> and minimum water
07:51:56 <Jake> and possibly water in between
07:52:03 <Kevin L™> And anything in between
07:52:10 <Kevin L™> :)
07:52:48 <Kevin L™> Average ticket price on stubhub for KNIGHTS/caps game is $1167 right now.
07:53:37 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Seems like the things-not-loading-properly bug is still around :(
07:54:59 <Eric (2)> haha...Micah, that was the first thing I checked this morning :-D
07:56:03 <Eric (2)> I would like to catch a GHP still....wondering how many days it will take for it to start doing them again?
07:57:39 <Micah> Probably 2-3, but we dont have a lot of recovery data for the previous two eruptions.
07:57:53 <Jake> Giant could go on day 4 or 5 based on 2007 spring activity so you should have a chance for GHP
07:57:59 <Micah> A bathtub was seen two days after the eruption on the 4th.
07:58:45 <Jake> prepare your speech for tourists who ask what you're waiting for! try to describe it in a way where they don't laugh at you!
07:59:12 <Micah> I managed just fine on the two days I sat on it prior to the 4th.
07:59:24 <Micah> I've gotten it down to about 2-3 minutes.
07:59:36 <Micah> It's not perfected like Anemone yet, but I'll get there.
08:00:07 <Dave from B™> So, do tourists laugh when you mention bathtub?
08:00:16 <Rice> What does bathtub, and Footbath mean with the Giant Hot Periods?
08:00:45 <Micah> A bathtub is when Mastiff Geyser comes up close to overflow or just at overflow without a hot period ensuing.
08:01:03 <Micah> a footbath is the same thing, but it stalls at a lower water level.
08:01:31 <Micah> And Dave from B that gets a chuckle out of them usually, or at least a smile. Although a lot of times I omit explaining bathtubs.
08:02:01 <Micah> Usually it's just "I'm waiting for Bijou to shut down so one of these swiss-cheese holes in front of Giant can erupt."
08:02:25 <Micah> I've learned to pick up on the subtleties of how much they want to know.
08:02:34 <Micah> If they want more details they'll ask.
08:03:15 <Micah> And 80% of people just walk into the cage, read the sign, look at Giant's cone, glance at Bijou, look at the "Last eruption" sign, and walk away.
08:03:17 <Rice> last summer when in the park, there was a group of gazer waiting for F&M, you were all very helpful to me when I kept asking a lot of questions.
08:03:28 <Micah> :thumbsup:
08:03:44 <Micah> Fan and Mortar is almost harder to explain than Giant Hot Periods haha.
08:03:55 <Rice> I kniduve wish I knew if it was any of you guys, if so Thanks
08:04:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Found the bug: one of my ad blocking extensions has an option to store popular libraries on locally, which should prevent tracking. Disabling it seems to have fixed it for good.
08:04:38 <Rice> I know you were all excited it was going to go, and it made it through a bunch of the steps then died out.
08:05:23 <Jake> you were really there! your Fan and Mortar story checks out :)
08:05:25 <Micah> Yep. Event cycles definitely string you along.
08:05:50 <Eric (2)> I will tell them to ask the guy over ==> Graham
08:06:41 <Eric (2)> looks like rain, rain, rain this upcoming week.
08:06:56 <Eric (2)> That will probably keep a lot of people away from the cage.
08:07:22 <Rice> It was August 7th.
08:07:34 <Dave from B™> Wasn't me
08:07:40 <Micah> Yep Eric that's probably why there weren't any hot periods noted.
08:07:46 <Micah> We probably missed them.
08:08:26 <Micah> I sure hope that wierd Steamboat trace is just due to the wet weather.
08:08:45 <Eric (2)> I agree, didn't like it when I saw it
08:10:52 <Eric (2)> But as DG pointed out, it matches the nuphar lake air temp pretty well:
08:11:16 <Micah> That makes me feel better
08:11:44 <Eric (2)> Yes, I think the logger is highly affected by air temp when volume of output is low
08:12:02 <Eric (2)> might not even be in the runoff
08:15:57 <ynpvisitor999®> bright spots on Kilauea static
08:16:20 <Kevin L™> It was wild last Knight.
08:17:02 <Kevin L™> Lava was past the top of the picture. Big cone there this morning.
08:17:27 <ynpvisitor999®> on livestream or static?
08:17:42 <Micah> anyone got a link for that?
08:18:00 <Kevin L™> Livestream. Once the sun is up it may be on static.
08:18:03 <Eric (2)> on the right side of this page
08:18:04 <Kevin L™> Just a minute
08:18:08 <Rice> Look at the line at the West gate!
08:18:36 <Micah> Oh there it is. Thanks Kevin.
08:18:40 <Kevin L™>
08:18:41 <Micah> Rice I don't think I want to...
08:19:01 <ynpvisitor999®> decent amount of traffic
08:19:01 <Eric (2)> meh, that is the 10am rush
08:19:17 <Kevin L™> It will be worse tomorrow. And the next day....
08:19:18 <Rice> Holiday Weekend, let go to the park!!!
08:19:26 <Eric (2)> don't enter the park between 10-12
08:19:37 <ynpvisitor999®> is already holidays then in the US?
08:19:38 <Micah> Make that 8 and 4
08:19:49 <Eric (2)> haha...ok :-D
08:20:12 <Kevin L™> It is a 3 day weekend DG.
08:20:38 <ynpvisitor999®> right
08:21:08 <Kevin L™> Almost 2000 miles of racing action! :)
08:21:38 <ynpvisitor32> That line is fairly small for 1020.
08:21:58 <Micah> I wonder if Bug will go long again.
08:22:19 <Kevin L™> I sure hope not!!
08:22:20 <Eric (2)> My boss is in monaco this weekend!
08:22:34 <Micah> The rain has me thinking it will, but we'll see.
08:22:41 <Kevin L™> Love Monaco. I wake up to watch it live.
08:22:55 <Dave from B™> you have a boss?
08:23:02 <Eric (2)> He is prime seats and pit passes :-D
08:23:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee splashing
08:23:21 <Eric (2)> has prime seats
08:23:42 <Eric (2)> Kinda jealous, but he will miss Steamboat :-P
08:23:45 <Kevin L™> Those run about the same as Knights tickets.
08:24:01 <Eric (2)> a little bit more Kevin :-D
08:24:15 <Eric (2)> I think his seats are in the 4-6k range
08:24:46 <ynpvisitor999®> water seems to be high in Lion too
08:25:28 <Micah> and Whirligig keeps whirling away
08:26:09 <Kevin L™> Prime tickets for game 1 are $4300 on stubhub.
08:26:15 <Rice> West gate is empty now!
08:27:17 <Eric (2)> ok...well, getting close :-D I would rather go see the monaco personally.
08:27:38 <Eric (2)> Nothing like open wheel racing through a european city!
08:28:45 <Kevin L™> I would have to agree Eric. I like how that one winds through the city. Only problem is you only see a small portion in person.
08:28:51 <Rice> i want F1 to come back to Watkins Glen, but probably will never happen.
08:29:45 <Dave from B™> Do they have rooftop viewing at Monaco?
08:30:02 <Eric (2)> I am not much of a car fan, but I went down to Texas speedway with a friend once and watched an indy race. I have to say that was one of the most boring things on earth!
08:30:25 <Eric (2)> They watch from everywhere dave!
08:31:57 <Kevin L™> Have you ever watched that race Dave?
08:32:22 <Dave from B™> I've seen highlights but never watched.
08:32:51 <Eric (2)> The other thing special about monaco is you can watch the race from your megayacht!
08:32:58 <Kevin L™> It is a fun one to watch. One of the few road courses I like.
08:33:12 <Eric (2)> You can't say that about many if any other F1 race
08:34:33 <Kevin L™> I like the local racing on short tracks. You get a lot more "racing" than the "point and hope you don't crash" style on the big tracks.
08:35:08 <Eric (2)> cool 3d visualization of the course:
08:35:32 <Kevin L™> Usually the best Nascar race is the dirt track truck race at Eldora.
08:36:27 <Eric (2)> Now that I could probably watch and have fun Kevin! The Texas race was a circle, super loud and hot...everyone wears ear protection. It just made me want to nap :-P
08:36:42 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
08:37:02 <Micah> Nice
08:37:16 <Kevin L™> ESPN is running Monaco live (0700 for you Dave) on Sunday.
08:38:22 <Kevin L™> We have tickets to the K&N dirt race in Vegas Sep 18th. First time that series has raced on dirt since 1979.
08:38:57 <Dave from B™> I need to retire
08:38:57 <Eric (2)> Fun...and september seems like a good time to be outdoors in Vegas
08:40:37 <Kevin L™> It is nice. I like our Bullring. 3/8 mile oval. $9 for about 6 hours of various races and you can bring a cooler in.
08:41:44 <Eric (2)> Your son doing the trailer race again?
08:42:15 <Eric (2)> Daisy
08:43:43 <Kevin L™> Yes he is. He also does the skid plate cars which are small front wheel drive cars with steel skid plates on the rear wheels. They run laps and loops.
08:45:21 <Eric (2)> Nice
08:46:17 <Eric (2)> We have color on the kilauea static cam finally
08:48:26 <Lead Man> Yes. Looks slightly more active, but very little movement toward PGV (that's good)
08:49:07 <Kevin L™> It was crazy last Knight about 1100
08:49:18 <Eric (2)> Yes, the flows are heading toward the ocean which is a great thing.
08:53:53 <Kevin L™> Thermal image
08:56:42 <Eric (2)> Thanks Kevin
08:57:11 <Eric (2)> I am trying to plan out lunch foods to buy when I get into town....since we have no fridge in the room :-(
08:57:28 <Dave from B™> You can also buy a styro cooler
08:57:33 <Eric (2)> It would be nice if they added fridges to the cabin rooms.
08:57:57 <Eric (2)> Yes, I might do that Dave, or bring my costco bag cooler....I hate styro
08:58:20 <Kevin L™> Probably charge you $30 a night for it.
08:59:09 <Kevin L™> Styros seem to leak after a few days too.
09:00:14 <Dave from B™> I could drop off a cooler in Livingston/Bozeman for you
09:00:26 <Eric (2)> Some fun facts about styrofoam -
09:00:54 <Eric (2)> would it be full of fish heads? :-P
09:01:01 <ynpvisitor74> lunch in geysering is "all day".
09:01:02 <Eric (2)> rolly polly fish heads
09:01:11 <Dave from B™> my home coolers have never had fish in them
09:01:45 <Eric (2)> haha :-D I appreciate the offer dave, but I think the costco cooler bag will work pretty well filled with a bag of ice.
09:01:58 <Kevin L™> Styrofoam makes good model railroad scenery.
09:02:23 <Dave from B™> just make sure you sneak to the Lodge ice house or the ice nazi will get you:D
09:02:56 <Eric (2)> I didn't know the lodge had an ice house
09:03:27 <Kevin L™> By the old restrooms.
09:03:39 <Dave from B™> Lots of ice for free!
09:03:45 <Eric (2)> to the tree that fell 2 years ago? :-P
09:03:53 <ynpvisitor74> ice is cheaper from the vending machines - no tax!
09:04:10 <Eric (2)> I like the idea of free ice
09:04:31 <Kevin L™> You can just get ice in the buckets a few at a time.
09:05:07 <Kevin L™> Your cabin key will open the lock.
09:05:26 <Eric (2)> got it...found the map:
09:06:04 <ynpvisitor74> you can pack rain gear in your cooler. :)
09:06:09 <Eric (2)> I didn't take them up on the free ice on my last stay
09:09:16 <Dave from B™> Eric, if you like nightime BH, leave your radio on overnight. Sometimes indy will get called
09:09:37 <Dave from B™> Or, you can stay up looking for it and call it over the radio
09:10:32 <Kevin L™> Grand & BH both in the window.
09:13:46 <Eric (2)> I did that last time I was there slept through it I believe :-D
09:14:13 <Eric (2)> Kitt was bright eyed out there in the middle of the night!
09:14:35 <Eric (2)> I :heart: the 3am enthusiasm!
09:41:26 <ynpvisitor27> Did Jake say he shortened the BH window the other day?
09:42:24 <ynpvisitor47> That may be why it decided to go back long. It is Jake's fault.
09:42:50 <Eric (2)> I think so 27
09:42:53 <Micah> If you write about it, it will change
09:42:56 <ynpvisitor27> he guessed it might happen, if I remember right, yet I think it is the weather shift
09:43:44 <Kevin L™> I lost my name!
09:43:54 <Kevin L™> That is odd.
09:43:56 <ynpvisitor27> you're back now.
09:43:59 <Eric (2)> looks like you found it again
09:44:11 <Kevin L™> I had to change it back.
09:44:37 <Eric (2)> never seen that before kevin
09:44:42 <Kevin L™> I guess I am better off than Dave. No internet. We can all blame him for stuff now.
09:44:46 <Eric (2)> did you clear your cookies or anything?
09:45:30 <Kevin L™> Flash froze and I hit Crtl f5 to restart it.
09:45:40 <ynpvisitor27> Dave lost his internet?
09:45:50 <Kevin L™> Yes,
09:46:40 <Eric (2)> If that happens, you can just hit the little circle arrows next to the "Live Stream Type" on the right side to get flash to reload
09:46:42 <ynpvisitor27> I wonder if that affects the market's ability to take credit cards...
09:46:50 <Eric (2)> That way it doesn't refresh the whole page
09:47:08 <Kevin L™> It probably does 27
09:47:22 <ynpvisitor27> good tidbit to know Eric
09:48:38 <ynpvisitor27> looks steamy behind the Grand trees
09:48:59 <Kevin L™> I will remember that. My whole computer froze though so it could be yet another one of the windows bugs.
09:49:23 <Kevin L™> About time for another Turban.
09:50:03 <Kevin L™> Last one was 1130
09:55:22 <ynpvisitor27> Turban delay unless it is a delay in posting it
09:56:05 <ynpvisitor27> 1154, just under
09:57:16 <Kevin L™> It will go on the next Turban. It will be in the OF window.
10:01:01 <ynpvisitor117> Riverside
10:03:51 <Eric (2)> Grand, BH, Lion, OF dual?
10:04:23 <Eric (2)> Don't think they will finish by tomorrow
10:04:41 <Kevin L™> I agree Eric.
10:04:58 <ynpvisitor999®> seems like Grand is trying to pull a long interval again
10:05:08 <ynpvisitor27> they will make a big push to get it done
10:05:11 <Kevin L™> You will have to send closeup photos
10:05:33 <Art> They were also ripping up some of the old road end of last year?
10:09:17 <ynpvisitor27> Too bad Giant could not have waited 4 more hours for Jim
10:10:05 <Micah> Rift's ie. R.I.P this Grand interval
10:10:44 <ynpvisitor27> Rift was ie and we have seen plenty of Grands during Rifts
10:11:44 <Micah> This year it's been pretty consistently delaying
10:11:47 <Eric (2)> Those are some nasty cloud heading over kilauea area!
10:11:47 <Micah> Grand
10:12:07 <Eric (2)> when?
10:12:10 <ynpvisitor27> I must be on delay
10:12:24 <Eric (2)> Micah is in the future :-P
10:12:26 <Micah> No, that was the end of my sentance. Sorry
10:12:27 <Art> Must be delayed
10:12:28 <Kevin L™> I don't see it
10:12:35 <Micah> NO GRAND
10:12:38 <Art> lol
10:12:38 <Micah> That was the end of my sentence
10:12:45 <Kevin L™> :)
10:12:59 <Eric (2)> Sure....don't deny you have a time machine!
10:13:05 <ynpvisitor27> funny. Not sure there have been enough Rift sightings to extrapolate that
10:13:12 <Art> A geologic time machine... duh dun duh...
10:13:41 <Eric (2)> Hi Bill!
10:13:54 <ynpvisitor117> Hi Bill K
10:14:06 <Bill> Afternoon all! I'm on a quick lunch break and then it's back to a classroom for the rest of the day.
10:14:28 <ynpvisitor27> going to Steamboat anytime soon?
10:14:41 <Kevin L™> Ugh! I hate classes.
10:14:46 <Bill> I'll be back to field work tomorrow. There will also be a new video of the previous Steamboat eruption posted some time in the next couple days.
10:14:52 <Eric (2)> If you stop by steamboat this will get to meet a lot of gazers :-D
10:14:56 <Bill> If i was a betting man, I would say this weekend.
10:15:01 <kc (working)> :thumbsup:
10:15:04 <Bill> I'll be at Norris tomorrow if that helps.
10:15:08 <ynpvisitor27> yes, those bets have been placed
10:15:22 <Eric (2)> I get in tomorrow late evening.
10:15:34 <ynpvisitor27> maybe you will get to see it Bill
10:15:34 <Bill> I'll be there around 11am until around 1pm.
10:15:36 <Bill> Oh nice!
10:15:52 <Eric (2)> But I will be around all week, so maybe we will bump into each other.
10:16:10 <ynpvisitor27> Bill did you hear Giant erupted again?
10:16:12 <Bill> That'd be great! I'll keep you posted on my doings next week.
10:16:12 <Kevin L™> The gazers should have some of those "Hello my name is..." tags.
10:16:19 <Bill> I did not hear that
10:16:26 <ynpvisitor27> early this morning
10:16:35 <Micah> 0223 Webcam.
10:16:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say next Steamboat on May 27 @ 0948 ± 24h
10:16:56 <Eric (2)> Yep...nice thing is we have an HD live streaming webcam that can catch those observations of Giant :-D
10:16:59 <Bill> Awesome!
10:17:42 <Eric (2)> Now if we can just get one of those at Norris and LGB, the world would be a better place :-P
10:18:16 <ynpvisitor999®> even though there are only two data points for Cistern overflow achieved and next Steamboat, I'd say you have the biggest chance on Steamboat on May 26 and May 26/27 overnight
10:18:49 <Bill> Oh that reminds me. I'm going to deploy a temperature logger at Cistern tomorrow
10:19:00 <Bill> It will only tell us if it is full or not, but that is still useful.
10:19:00 <Micah> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
10:19:34 <ynpvisitor999®> (for context, Steamboat erupted 3 to 3½ days after Cistern achieved overflow according to the points)
10:19:34 <Kevin L™> Grand
10:19:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
10:19:37 <ynpvisitor117> Grand
10:19:57 <Kevin L™> Of course during OF window. :P
10:19:58 <ynpvisitor999®> in OF window
10:20:19 <Micah> Ok that wasn't that bad of an interval.
10:20:26 <Micah> I'll stick to predicting Anemone
10:20:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I think Grand wants some attention, seen the fact it goes near or during an OF window
10:21:07 <ynpvisitor117> OF
10:21:31 <Eric (2)> Now we know...Micah is about 8 minutes ahead of us in time!
10:21:56 <Kevin L™> Hope OF is a short
10:22:09 <Eric (2)> doesn't everything go near an OF window :-P
10:22:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I can kinda tell if it's going to be short or long
10:22:48 <ynpvisitor999®> so far it seems it's going to be long
10:23:15 <ynpvisitor999®> 2m into the eruption and no drop-off, so long (maybe medium)
10:24:01 <ynpvisitor999®> medium
10:26:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat is still steaming, occasionally spritzing 3-4 ft as of 0725-0745 this morning
10:26:13 <ynpvisitor999®> from north vent, that is
10:27:10 <Lead Man> Grand near 8 minutes
10:28:55 <Kevin L™> Probably a 1b
10:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> :(
10:29:27 <Micah> Alright now we shoot for 15 minutes
10:29:30 <Lead Man> about 10 minutes now
10:29:41 <Lead Man> sorry Micah
10:29:53 <ynpvisitor999®> thought b1 was done for a sec
10:30:23 <ynpvisitor999®> 11m
10:30:23 <Micah> Keep spiking Grand.
10:31:33 <ynpvisitor999®> 12m, b1 done
10:31:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1227
10:31:58 <Micah> drat
10:32:24 <Kevin L™> Figures
10:32:47 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m58s
10:35:06 <ynpvisitor999®> anyone interested in [s]thunder[/s] ozone created by interesting flashing lights in the sky, as well as hail and rain?
10:35:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I got plenty now
10:38:09 <ynpvisitor999®> rainbow on Kilauea static
10:38:23 <Micah> excellent
10:38:36 <Art> So that cam is looking at the Puna Geothermal plant?
10:40:23 <Eric (2)> Yes...the far corner of puna is where that green roof building is
10:40:37 <Eric (2)> beautiful static image there
10:44:37 <Betty> hi all
10:44:50 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:44:54 <Micah> Hi Betty
10:44:58 <Betty> Is Bee waiting for me? nice
10:45:00 <Kevin L™> hi
10:45:16 <Betty> hi Micah, DG and Kevin
10:45:50 <Eric (2)> Hi Betty
10:46:00 <Eric (2)> Grand was not as kind....
10:46:05 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
10:46:07 <Betty> Hi Eric (2)
10:47:05 <Betty> lol
10:47:19 <Eric (~33h)> I am not excited at all :-P
10:47:34 <Betty> I bet
10:47:46 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like the renaming bug played up again
10:48:03 <Eric (~33h)> Yes, it does all of the time....that really needs to be fixed!
10:48:10 <Micah> there it goes
10:48:33 <Eric (~33h)> Also someone asked for their names to be remembered longer.
10:51:23 <Lead Man> Rainbow on Kilauea rift eruption Web cam
10:51:32 <Lead Man> I downloaded it
10:51:56 <Micah> Firehole is almost below Bankfull
10:51:57 <Eric (~33h)> FYI, in front of that green building on the static camera is where all of the wells actually sit for puna geo.
10:52:04 <Eric (~33h)> Me too Jimbo :-D
10:52:23 <Lead Man> They're behind the high trees to the left
10:53:18 <Micah> The conspiracy nuts are losing their minds about that
10:53:46 <Eric (~33h)> Actually, right in the gravel area near the building...check it out here:
10:54:44 <Eric (~33h)> At least according to that map
10:57:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat seems to be ramping up its activity now
10:57:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 15 feet NV solo @ 0913
10:58:01 <Micah>
10:58:12 <Micah> Interview with the man struck by a lava bomb the other day
10:58:33 <Micah> For any of you who are squeamish he does go into some gruesome detail with his injury so be forewarned.
10:58:52 <ynpvisitor999®> however, more of it is splashing than actual minors according to 0903-1000 note
10:58:53 <Micah> no images but just descriptions.
10:59:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I might hold off for now then, as I need to keep stomach contents inside, not outside
11:00:30 <Michael> .
11:00:31 <Michael> .
11:00:31 <Michael> .
11:00:32 <Michael> .
11:00:33 <Michael> .
11:00:44 <Michael> :bhi:
11:00:45 <Betty> indy
11:01:18 <Eric (~33h)> kidney...that is a new one for me
11:01:39 <Betty> you have a new kidney?
11:01:52 <Betty> ;-)
11:02:44 <Micah> Eric do you know where Kidney is?
11:02:55 <Eric (~33h)> what is that large cone south of kidney? looks like the old road use to go right next to it
11:03:16 <Micah> Large cone?
11:03:22 <Micah> There are no large cones by Kidney
11:03:50 <Micah> Kidney's in the LGB. The Thud Group.
11:04:24 <Betty> is Kevin asleep?
11:05:04 <Micah> 44.558373, -110.807294
11:05:08 <Micah> Kidney Spring
11:05:09 <Betty> I did a text
11:05:33 <Micah> Erupts from four vents, pretty frequent, and pretty noticeable from the road. Only 3-4 feet at it's best though.
11:05:39 <ynpvisitor37> got the text
11:06:16 <Eric (~33h)> This giant hole in the ground Micah:,-110.8074962,167m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351e9854899b481:0x76a418a244cd4d43!8m2!3d44.5511886!4d-110.8083335
11:06:23 <Eric (~33h)> south of kidney
11:06:29 <ynpvisitor117> text recieved , Drooling begins :)
11:06:45 <Eric (~33h)> The old road looks like it went right up next to it and was probably an active thermal feature at one point.
11:06:58 <Eric (~33h)> My TSB is packed or I would look it up :-P
11:07:17 <Micah> That's not a cone That's a deep spring.
11:07:29 <Micah> I'm bad with the names of the Thud Group.
11:07:41 <Kevin L™> There used to be a hotel there
11:07:43 <Micah> That's probably one of the old roads used during the time of the Fountain Hotel, which was in the trees immediately to the south.
11:07:46 <Eric (~33h)> ok...really hard to tell from outer space :-)
11:07:58 <Micah> Yep.
11:08:27 <Micah> One of those springs is having some pretty powerful eruptions right now. But no one's noticed/cares enough to sit on it. I haven't had time but it's on my list if I work this summer.
11:08:36 <Eric (~33h)> I can only imagine that it use to have some kind of activity...the road bends toward it.
11:08:40 <Kevin L™> TSB has a list of things they cleaned out of Thud geyser. Unreal.
11:09:00 <Eric (~33h)> Could that be Thud geyser?
11:09:09 <Micah> I think it's the original Thud
11:09:16 <Micah> I think right now it's named Fungoid Spring.
11:09:29 <Micah> But the Thud group is one of the MANY areas where names got shellgamed around.
11:09:29 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
11:09:46 <Micah> I'm looking it up in my archives right now.
11:10:06 <ynpvisitor37> Where's Scott? He'll know!! :D
11:10:43 <Kevin L™> Bet you see him at Steamboat this weekend.
11:11:09 <sparekitty> it's nice when stuff erupts during my lunch; theni don't have to explain why i'm watching...
11:11:30 <Eric (~33h)> haha....your doing it for the children Kitt :-D
11:12:01 <Micah> Rocco was the one who told me about the name switch in the Thud Group.
11:12:45 <Kitt> what are you talking about Eric?
11:13:50 <Eric (~33h)> explanation of why you are watching the the was supposed to be tongue in cheek...oh well.
11:14:39 <sparekitty> oh, i'm a bit slow here...sorry~
11:15:32 <Kitt> don't feel bad sparekitty, all I did was change to my name and totally lost
11:15:34 <Art> :bee:
11:15:35 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
11:15:36 <Kitt> go Beehive
11:15:36 <Eric (~33h)> and my humor can be poor :-( chat doesn't help.
11:15:47 <Eric (~33h)> woot
11:16:13 <Kitt> I haven't worked with kids for two years now
11:16:16 <ynpvisitor37> :bee::heart::bee:
11:16:16 <Micah> Nice
11:16:17 <Kevin L™> Someone is going to get wet.
11:16:36 <sparekitty> yahooo
11:16:42 <Lead Man> Very pretty
11:16:44 <ynpvisitor999®> on the low side, but still nice
11:17:01 <ynpvisitor999®> blame the wind :D
11:17:03 <Eric (~33h)> wind is stronger than I thought it would beeee
11:17:27 <Kevin L™> I was hoping for a rainbow.
11:17:46 <sparekitty> BH never fails to be awesome
11:17:55 <ynpvisitor37> so true!!
11:17:57 <Eric (~33h)> tomorrow is supposed to be 70 and sunny....wish I was there earlier in the day.
11:18:31 <Micah> Has anyone ever figured how to do height based on the ridge?
11:18:55 <Eric (~33h)> I think the camera zoom would have to be known
11:19:13 <Art> People getting a quick shower ;)
11:19:17 <Eric (~33h)> ohhh, you mean for the BW side
11:20:04 <Micah> No I mean from here
11:20:12 <Micah> Boardwalk has baselines.
11:20:22 <Kevin L™> They used to have markers on the BW for a lot of geysers at a measured distance to do an angle with.
11:20:24 <Lead Man> You could do it if you knew the distance from the camera to the trees and to Beehive, and the height of the trees.
11:20:49 <ynpvisitor999®> did I just see Daisy?
11:21:27 <Kitt> don't know
11:21:32 <Kitt> thanks for text
11:21:49 <sparekitty> later all, back to work!
11:22:06 <Micah> Kevin they have two for Beehive still.
11:22:12 <Micah> One towards Anemone and one towards Depression
11:22:13 <ynpvisitor999®> probably thought wishfully, it seems
11:22:18 <Betty> bye Kitt and sparekitty
11:22:23 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe I saw Castle's plume then
11:22:28 <Kevin L™> I think Aurum has one too.
11:22:30 <Michael> Gordon Bower posted somewhere (i forget where) that the horizon over Beehive was ~75 feet.
11:22:33 <ynpvisitor37> Thanks all!!
11:22:44 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Kitt, sparekitty and 37
11:22:49 <Michael> [as viewed on the webcam]
11:23:51 <Micah> I just did some VERY primative techniques and came up with about 90
11:24:06 <ynpvisitor999®> for a short while though
11:24:07 <Eric (~33h)> The camera zoom will affect your perspective on height...won't it?
11:24:27 <Kevin L™> I think about 20 years ago there was a rumor that OF was not as tall. Seems they were using a tree to measure height and forgot that trees grow over time.
11:24:36 <Michael> I haven't tried to re-create the calculations myself.
11:25:26 <Eric (~33h)> I don't think you can do it unless you know the zoom multiplier...but maybe the tree height shift will negate that.
11:26:57 <Lead Man> The ground where the trees are is higher than where Beehive is, so you'd need to know the full difference between the altitude of Beehive's cone and the altitude of the treetops.
11:30:44 <Art> This forecast for the next week or so does not look awesome :(
11:42:28 <Kevin L™> Oblong?
11:42:45 <Michael> I hope so.
11:43:03 <Micah> Maybe Turban and Vent restart?
11:43:14 <Kevin L™> Odd we didn't get inbasin BH times
11:43:27 <Eric (~33h)> OF
11:43:33 <Eric (~33h)> No it doesn't Art :-(
11:44:34 <Kevin L™> Daisy
11:46:13 <Dave from B™> @#$^#$%&^$%&$&^%*&*&^*^&*(&^*(&*()&*()
11:46:36 <Kevin L™> wb Dave
11:47:09 <Eric (~33h)> You have the internets!
11:47:38 <Michael> Hi Dave. That's an awful lot of punctuation!
11:47:58 <Kevin L™> We need a cussing icon
11:48:11 <Micah> ^
11:48:12 <Dave from B™> 2.5 hours without internet, phones, cc machine on a busy holiday weekend
11:48:25 <Eric (~33h)> You need cellular backup internet
11:48:36 <Eric (~33h)> bridge your phone internet to your whole business.
11:50:00 <Eric (~33h)> something like this:
11:50:52 <Eric (~33h)> This would work too...a lot cheaper:
11:52:29 <Kevin L™> This is cheaper yet:
11:57:24 <Dave from B™> That will have to be a project for another day/month/year
11:58:46 <Kevin L™> Just have the poopfield guy do it. That would be appropriate for most ISPs I know of.
12:05:50 <Eric (~33h)> You don't have to wait for the ground to dry out to plug in a cellular modem :-P
12:07:22 <ynpvisitor999®> took longer than expected
12:07:43 <Eric (~33h)> Might not help on the phones though if your ISP is also hosting your virtual PBX
12:08:47 <Kevin L™> Dave should retire and buy a pig farm
12:09:10 <Eric (~33h)> near kilauea
12:09:23 <Kevin L™> Good BBQ!
12:09:27 <Eric (~33h)> island life for Dave :-D
12:12:07 <Dave from B™> Yes, my ISP is also my phone provider
12:13:29 <Dave from B™> less than 3 hours until my thirst is quenched
12:13:35 <Eric (~33h)> Those bundled services are awesome...until they are not!
12:14:34 <Dave from B™> We have a pretty good wired system...very trouble free for the most part
12:14:40 <Kevin L™> Perrier with a twist of lemon?
12:14:52 <ynpvisitor999®> we got bundled services, sometimes downtime due to maintenance, so they can provide higher internet speeds and more digital tv channels
12:14:55 <Eric (~33h)> Whiskey neat :-D
12:15:36 <Eric (~33h)> Keep a bottle of pendleton under your desk dave :-P
12:15:55 <Dave from B™> no alcohol allowed at work
12:16:33 <Eric (~33h)> Your boss is a real hard case.
12:18:13 <Dave from B™> Just ask Becca what happened when she came out of the bathroom wearing a whole box of bandaids
12:18:24 <Dave from B™> when she was 3 or 4
12:31:29 <ALL CAPS (2)> LEYS GO CAPS
12:31:47 <ALL CAPS (2)> or even LETS GO CAPS
12:32:39 <Kevin L™> Is someone still asleep and dreaming?
12:32:50 <Kevin L™> It must be Knight time.
12:33:09 <ALL CAPS (2)> haha and Giant too, wow what a night
12:33:36 <Kevin L™> Fast moving clouds.
12:33:36 <ALL CAPS (2)> I think Eric needs to update his time, should be less than that now?
12:34:18 <ALL CAPS (2)> i think I am around 42h to be at Norris
12:34:59 <ALL CAPS (2)> although 2 sounds better
12:35:15 <ALL CAPS (2)> are you ready for a real competitor now Kevin?
12:35:53 <ALL CAPS (2)> when did we start talking about CAPS Knights cup final?
12:35:57 <Kevin L™> A real competitor doesn't NEED a game 7!
12:36:10 <Kevin L™> I think it was in September.
12:36:42 <ALL CAPS (2)> you wait, Game 7's are really fun
12:36:59 <ALL CAPS (2)> although I will go for winning it in 4 or 6 so its at home
12:37:01 <Kevin L™> Don't plan on seeing one.
12:37:29 <ALL CAPS (2)> at least i only miss the first 3 games in the park
12:37:55 <Kevin L™> I think we will win it a week from Sunday in Washington.
12:37:57 <Lead Man> Joke told yesterday, before Caps won: If they win, they would face a team whose colors are predominantly black and gold and which has a goaltender named Fleury.
12:38:02 <Dave from B™> Last nights Game 7 was fun
12:38:07 <ALL CAPS (2)> so i have not changed my steamboat prediction, still 1600 to 2200
12:38:20 <Lead Man> Illustrated the true meaning of "puck luck"
12:38:22 <Dave from B™> Sounds like the Penguins
12:38:27 <Betty> Lion
12:38:45 <ALL CAPS (2)> wait, isnt Game 4 on Monday 4th?
12:38:57 <Lead Man> That's right, Dave :-/
12:39:09 <Betty> no Lion
12:39:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion doesn't want to go yet, Betty :(
12:39:24 <ynpvisitor999®> though it seems to be close
12:39:35 <Lead Man> Yes, Game 4 on June 4
12:39:43 <Kevin L™> You are right
12:39:54 <ALL CAPS (2)> so you are not going to win Kevin
12:40:08 <ALL CAPS (2)> team will show up on the wrong night
12:40:46 <ALL CAPS (2)> Giant was a surprise, not looking very promising n the last few days ... other than it was having hot periods (who knows for yesterday)
12:40:48 <Kevin L™> Monday is better for me anyway.
12:40:53 <Dave from B™> I hoping Caps in 7 but my favorite team isn't playing
12:41:05 <ALL CAPS (2)> thanks Dave :)
12:41:13 <ALL CAPS (2)> I want it in 6 to be at home
12:41:15 <Lead Man> Just looking at 7 staffers pick Knights, 7 staffers pick Caps.
12:41:51 <Kevin L™> To be flat honest I am still amazed the Knight are here. A winning season would have made me happy.
12:42:11 <Dave from B™> Based on Steamboat notes, it shouldn't go tomorrow
12:42:35 <ALL CAPS (2)> oh yeah i agree Kevin, its amazing they got this far ..... maybe next season will be better and they win the cup
12:42:47 <Dave from B™> :D
12:43:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm thinking Steamboat'll go late PM on May 26 or early AM May 27
12:43:51 <Dave from B™> Another Steamboat with no watchers?
12:44:15 <ynpvisitor999®> (late PM = after 1800; early AM = before 0900)
12:45:03 <Kevin L™> It is also amazing they have done the playoffs with only 3 losses. Let's see, how many games has that other team lost?
12:45:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Though I'd put more of my money on May 27 @ 0948 ± 24h
12:45:46 <Lead Man> Seven, but they got rolling after losing the first 2 to CBJ
12:46:32 <Kevin L™> Can't say how the Knights do at 0-2. Never seen it before.
12:46:37 <ALL CAPS (2)> i am wishing for Sat afternoon but i expect there will be people there all night unless the weather is totally crappy
12:46:56 <ALL CAPS (2)> they will crumble Kevin, not knowing what to do
12:47:00 <Dave from B™> I think Mother Nature may cause problems again
12:47:06 <Kevin L™> I want SB in the day with about 1000 video cams running.
12:47:17 <Lead Man> Looking at playoff stats, the Caps power play is at 29%, Vegas at 18%, but Vegas has a slightly better PK average (82.5 vs. 75.4)
12:47:42 <Dave from B™> Finding a 4 leaf clover is easier than finding videos of Steamboat
12:47:48 <ALL CAPS (2)> haha there will be a lot of cameras in daylight for sure not sure about video.....
12:47:58 <Kevin L™> Somebody told me that at mid season Graham. Also at the start of the playoffs. Can't remember his name...
12:48:16 <ALL CAPS (2)> there is the awesome one where the person was videoing from the bottom of the channel when it started
12:48:23 <Lead Man> Surprisingly, Caps lead by almost five in shots allowed. If Fleury is not at his best, that could benefit Caps.
12:48:55 <Lead Man> I.e., Caps have allowed five fewer shots per game than Vegas. Vegas has been relying a lot of Fleury's ability.
12:49:08 <Lead Man> And he's lived up to the task so far
12:50:00 <Eric (~33h)> Hey Graham
12:50:25 <ALL CAPS (2)> wb Eric
12:50:33 <Kevin L™> Well one of us will have the Cup when it is over anyway!
12:50:47 <ALL CAPS (2)> thats good too Kevin
12:51:02 <Lead Man> That's a very good prediction, Kevin. You might be right.
12:51:10 <Dave from B™> And you kept it away from Canada for another year
12:51:22 <Kevin L™> Even if we don't win it runner up is not too shabby for an expansion team!
12:51:28 <Lead Man> No kidding
12:51:56 <ALL CAPS (2)> if you win it cant get any better .. so downhill ... dont you want something to strive for improvement next season?
12:52:27 <Kevin L™> Yes, that is the bummer. Nowhere to go but down.
12:52:47 <Lead Man> Still, though, it's nice when your T-shirt can say "Stanley Cup Champions".
12:53:00 <Kevin L™> Very true
12:54:40 <Eric (~32h)> FYI for people not here earlier...bill said they put a logger on cistern to trigger when it goes full or drains (ON/OFF)
12:55:03 <Eric (~32h)> Will be interesting to see if a pattern emerges
12:56:10 <ynpvisitor999®> will it be placed in a runoff channel?
12:56:44 <ALL CAPS (2)> i have been checking the comments, seems like the timeline is similar to the last eruption so far
12:56:53 <ALL CAPS (2)> both Steamboat and Cistern
13:00:51 <ALL CAPS (2)> bbl
13:01:28 <ynpvisitor999®> bye
13:02:30 <Eric (~32h)> No idea DG
13:03:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope it'll be placed in a runoff channel, because then you can track when overflow started/ended and possible eruptions
13:35:07 <Kevin L™> Rain
13:44:25 <Eric (~32h)> anyone have OF lodge desk#?
13:45:05 <Dave from B™> That would be a Will question
13:46:58 <Dave from B™> If it helps OFI is 307-545-4601
13:52:13 <Eric (~32h)> OFL - 307-344-4901 if that helps anyone else
13:52:49 <Eric (~32h)> Xanterra reservations shoved me off there so I got the number in case I got disconnected :-D
13:53:06 <Kevin L™> Thanks. May be nice to have
13:54:09 <Eric (~32h)> Wanted a note on there in case I had to divert to norris directly tomorrow.
13:54:43 <Kevin L™> Hope you need to do that
13:55:23 <Eric (~32h)> I am hoping it waits until Saturday afternoon....that would be a much better outcome for most.
13:55:50 <Dave from B™> I hope it goes Saturday...then I will be there next Saturday:)
13:56:19 <Eric (~32h)> I might take a quick drive through firehole lake drive early saturday morning too :-D
13:56:39 <Eric (~32h)> Not sure what time it opens up
13:56:51 <Dave from B™> That should open tomorrow, Eric
13:57:09 <Dave from B™> Let me ask Maureen
13:57:47 <Eric (~32h)> awesome, thanks Dave
13:59:22 <Dave from B™> She saw White Dome 51 minutes ago
13:59:28 <Dave from B™> according to GT
13:59:46 <Eric (~32h)> seen from main road....
13:59:57 <Eric (~32h)> I assume she means not firehole lake dr
14:09:36 <Dave from B™> correct
14:13:32 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out. Have a great evening everyone! For those traveling this weekend be safe and be aware that rivers and streams are VERY VERY high.
14:14:13 <Dave from B™> Eric, I will be get road info when I get it
14:14:24 <Dave from B™> I'll hop on later tonight
14:21:39 <Eric (~32h)> Thanks Dave...good night!
15:03:53 <ynpvisitor79> Dave here. FLR will be open by 10 am tomorrow
15:05:15 <ALL CAPS (40h)> oh good
15:05:38 <ALL CAPS (40h)> i wont be there tho
15:06:39 <ALL CAPS (40h)> Maureen will probably help them open the gate
15:07:23 <ynpvisitor79> Eric was asking so I went straight to the Queen of Fountain!:)
15:25:43 <Kevin L™> :)
15:27:13 <Kevin L™> Strange Aurum start Wish I could have seen it from the bw
16:46:52 <ALL CAPS (40h)> nobody posting Turban times? how surprising
17:15:39 <Eric (~32h)> Thanks Dave.....that will be perfect for an early morning drive through on the way to Norris on Saturday, if I don't see that things are really going at steamboat
17:16:05 <Eric (~32h)> nasty wind shift on kilauea static cam
17:18:57 <ALL CAPS (37h)> i am cathcing up with Eric
17:19:58 <ALL CAPS (37h)> nice blue sky at OF now
17:20:04 <ALL CAPS (37h)> for Grand
17:20:08 <ALL CAPS (37h)> boom
17:20:15 <ALL CAPS (37h)> huge
17:20:53 <ALL CAPS (37h)> 1919
17:21:54 <ynpvisitor25> Nice lighting
17:33:39 <ALL CAPS (37h)> finishing packing here ... see you on the other side of the cam sometime .. whenever Steamboat lets me escape
17:34:08 <ALL CAPS (37h)> and....
17:34:12 <ALL CAPS (37h)> GO CAPS!!!!!
17:49:34 <Artt> Lion
19:10:22 <Kevin L™> And I hope Graham isn't too disappointed.
19:36:18 <kcmule> daisy ie
