00:50:58 <ynp> I'm no good with these graphs, but that looks like Steamboat 012x to me.
00:54:53 <ynpvisitor78> Initial signal at 01:06. The 01:2x looks like start of steam phase
00:55:17 <ynpvisitor4> I agree
00:55:47 <ynpvisitor4> Water temperature plot looks consistent also
00:55:48 <ynpvisitor78> Yes. Steamboat erupted. Can see on both YNM and YNR seismo.
00:56:52 <ynpvisitor18> This is USGS. Yep, sure looks like an eruption. Spike at Tantalus as well. Unfortunately, won't have the temperature data for a while because no staff with access are in a place where they can trigger a download!
00:57:37 <ynp> Back to bed, then.
01:11:23 <ynpvisitor999> good to see SB went again
01:12:57 <ynpvisitor999> about 16m waterphase it seems
01:15:54 <ynpvisitor999> DaveM, if you're still here, I added the question mark in case the in-basin time is the same as E time
01:50:18 <ynpvisitor105> Ohh, Steamboat already went, poor Dave!
01:51:21 <ynpvisitor105> he has no luck with that thing...
02:34:25 <ynpvisitor38> GOSA fb made a post already. Someone's up late.
02:39:17 <ynpvisitor76> Is that Oblong i.e. down basin behind the trees?
02:40:55 <ynpvisitor105> we see Daisy
02:42:09 <ynpvisitor76> I was seeing steam further to the right behind the trees
02:42:59 <ynpvisitor105> sorry, I just came back to the cam, did not see it
02:43:10 <ynpvisitor105> Riverside is ie
02:43:36 <ynpvisitor76> Looked to be to the right of Grand, but not far enough to the right to be Riverside.
02:44:02 <ynpvisitor76> Hard to tell location with the breeze at the time. Wind shifting a bit...
02:44:37 <ynpvisitor105> Grotto maybe
02:44:52 <ynpvisitor105> there were no Oblongs posted for a while
02:45:06 <ynpvisitor105> no in-basin reportd either
02:45:33 <ynpvisitor76> Cold morning. Not many people out. Only one person reported at Steamboat for the eruption....
02:46:13 <ynpvisitor105> at least ther was an eyewitness to the eruption
02:47:04 <ynpvisitor76> Seismo signature 01:06 was water start then faded, then steam phase on seismo about 01:22.
02:47:16 <ynpvisitor105> Poor Dave from B, he missed it again. I hope he read it went before he drove
02:48:35 <ynpvisitor105> maybe you saw Turban
02:48:45 <ynpvisitor76> Texts started going out around 3:00. Don't know if Dave was notified or not...
02:49:09 <ynpvisitor105> if there was a text, he got it
02:49:13 <ynpvisitor76> Not Turban that I saw - it was to the right of that, and just barely left of where Giant shows...
02:50:28 <ynpvisitor105> well, gtg.bye
02:50:34 <ynpvisitor76> If it was Grotto, would expect it to still be i.e.
02:53:40 <ynpvisitor999®> good Lion try
02:58:01 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
03:05:18 <Rice> Steamboat overnight, Woo Hoo.
03:06:22 <ynpvisitor999®> so that makes this week quite exceptional, I think: Steamboat, F&M, Giant and Steamboat again in just under 7 days :)
03:12:12 <Rice> OF course I went to the park last summer!
03:12:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
03:12:29 <Rice> Castle, IE
03:29:47 <Rice> Not that I would trade my trip with my kids for anything in the world.
04:59:59 <Dave from B™> I'm tired of packing:(
05:00:16 <ynpvisitor999®> you missed Steamboat?
05:00:27 <ynpvisitor74> morning Dave, lc here.
05:00:53 <ynpvisitor74> that geyser hates you.
05:01:08 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
05:01:29 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:01:44 <Dave from B™> Yep....more than likely skipping the next round with Father's Day and Michelle's birthday on Monday the 18th.
05:02:32 <ynpvisitor25> When did you find out? Hopefully you weren't on the road...
05:02:59 <Dave from B™> I checked seismo when I woke up at 340
05:03:19 <ynpvisitor74> looking like it will go just before we get there on the 26th.
05:03:52 <Dave from B™> I may have a shot on the 25th. We'll see what happens next week
05:03:55 <ynpvisitor25> glad you were not actually en route
05:04:12 <ynpvisitor74> maybe July 3 or 4.
05:04:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Next Steamboat, provided active phase continues and no disturbance happens, on June 18 @ 1306 ± 24h
05:05:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep seems to be ie
05:05:53 <ynpvisitor74> good you saw it erupted before you got on the road.
05:06:19 <Dave from B™> Love modern technology
05:06:52 <ynpvisitor74> for sure.
05:09:12 <ynpvisitor74> wonder if Jeff was the only one there.
05:09:28 <ynpvisitor25> After the big minor yesterday I almost wondered if you thought about taking off early
05:09:38 <Dave from B™> As cold as it was, it is a possibility
05:10:31 <Dave from B™> 25, I didn't want to sleep in my car last night outside of a campground
05:11:11 <ynpvisitor74> don't think I am going to make overnight watch.
05:11:37 <Dave from B™> I figured it wouldn't go in the 10 hours after the big minor
05:12:38 <ynpvisitor74> so that was about 14 hours after that big minor, right?
05:13:17 <Dave from B™> yep
05:13:31 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Betty
05:13:33 <Dave from B™> Big minors seem to make the next cycle or 2 weaker
05:13:56 <Betty> Same to you, DG
05:14:11 <ynpvisitor74> what are the cycles?
05:14:24 <Betty> poor Dave :-(
05:15:06 <Betty> seems Steamboat hates you
05:15:15 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
05:15:28 <Dave from B™> cycles are about every 3-5 hours
05:15:41 <Betty> it is such a bummer
05:15:55 <Dave from B™> At least I wasn't on the road when it erupted
05:15:58 <ynpvisitor74> I already told him that Betty.>(
05:16:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
05:16:47 <Betty> we all feel with you
05:17:23 <Dave from B™> Thanks everyone. I wish you all lived as close as I do. We all need to see it
05:17:33 <ynpvisitor74> Becca wants it in daylight.
05:18:11 <ynpvisitor999®> there's a decent chance for the next eruption to be in the daylight
05:18:14 <Betty> yes, imagine you get the message just at Park entrance
05:18:43 <Dave from B™> Betty, that's my nightmare:)
05:18:47 <Betty> that it went hours before I mean
05:19:50 <ynpvisitor74> Dave, we are going to get it July 3.
05:20:45 <Betty> well, in your frustration you May watch OF instead
05:21:32 <ynpvisitor74> about two in the afternoon, clear sky, low 70's.
05:21:35 <Betty> For OF is a mayor geyser ;-)
05:22:29 <Betty> i hope you get it in the way you want it, 74
05:22:54 <ynpvisitor74> bbl, ma just called breakfast.
05:23:03 <Dave from B™> haha lc. I'll write that prediction down
05:23:10 <Betty> enjoy
05:23:15 <ynpvisitor74> thanks Betty. btw lc here.
05:23:30 <Dave from B™> I wasn't looking forward to morning temps of 25
05:24:27 <Betty> oh, did not know it was lc :-)
05:25:07 <Betty> so in a way you are happy not to go
05:26:33 <Dave from B™> Well, if I don't see it this year, I will regret it the rest of my life..so I will take it in any weather. And, at this point I may never leave the platform when I arrive the next time until it erupts
05:27:16 <ynpvisitor999®> 5 years later...
05:27:48 <ynpvisitor25> We need "Not Leaving" T-shirts
05:27:56 <Dave from B™> I'll send for more provisions:)
05:29:06 <Dave from B™> Did we miss Grand or is it approaching 10 hours?
05:29:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I think we missed Grand
05:29:32 <Betty> Bbl
05:29:41 <ynpvisitor999®> see you later, Betty
05:29:43 <Dave from B™> Have a safe trip home Betty
05:32:48 <ynpvisitor999®> haven't seen Whirligig minors prior to the most recent one (@ 1333 yesterday) in quite a while now
05:33:33 <Dave from B™> Good morning michael
05:33:42 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Michael
05:35:43 <Michael> Morning, Dave and DG. I'm once again a little relieved that this wasn't the week I impulsively bought flight tickets.
05:36:51 <Dave from B™> This interval was almost 2 hours shorter than the previous shortest of 2018
05:37:13 <Dave from B™> But still very consistent for such a powerful geyser
05:40:34 <ynpvisitor25> an amazing amount of thermal energy!!!
05:40:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand @ 0421
05:41:56 <ynpvisitor999®> 2b
05:42:10 <Dave from B™> Thanks DG
05:42:53 <Dave from B™> Not much expected in the next couple of hours
05:44:40 <Michael> Then I'm off to the dentist. Not that I had much choice in the matter.
05:45:01 <ynpvisitor999®> see you later
05:45:59 <ynpvisitor999®> once again a mixed phase for Steamboat
05:47:24 <Dave from B™> good luck Michael
05:48:37 <Dave from B™> Rocks 5 hours after start. That is amazing to me
06:05:09 <Bill K.> Morning
06:05:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
06:07:11 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill...no close miss on Steamboat for you this time
06:18:15 <Bill K.> I was there last night....
06:18:27 <Bill K.> Hung out with the gazers from like 430-8
06:19:41 <Dave from B™> I can't believe we've had 9 eruptions this year
06:20:06 <Bill K.> It better erupt again. I have plans for it.
06:20:39 <Dave from B™> What kind of plans?
06:21:14 <Bill K.> Water chemistry during eruption and audio recording (in addition to what we already have out there)
06:21:15 <ynpvisitor999®> you might want to go on June 18 @ 1306 ± 24h if active phase continues and no disturbance happens, Bill
06:21:20 <Eric> whaaaa, why are you here Dave?
06:21:24 <Eric> Morning
06:21:32 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
06:21:57 <Bill K.> That's definitely the plan. I'm going to try to talk the park geologist into letting me hang out there for most of the window
06:22:06 <Eric> ohhh, it went at 1am...cruel
06:22:11 <Eric> :-(
06:22:14 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
06:22:20 <ynpvisitor999®> feeling noble today?
06:22:49 <Jimbo Argon> Quite, though I'm still slightly reactive
06:23:02 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough :)
06:24:02 <Eric> That eruption doesn't really look like a major on the graph
06:24:38 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric...I'm getting that same question from my entire staff today as well
06:25:19 <Dave from B™> For anyone counting...I'm now 0-4
06:25:21 <Eric> So sorry dave :-(
06:26:03 <ynpvisitor999®> is that all Steamboats you could've caught or for this week alone, Dave?
06:26:10 <Dave from B™> It makes you appreciate it more when you finally see it. This feels like F&M journey all over again. That journey was over 10 years
06:26:40 <Dave from B™> I've had plans for last 4 Steamboats. 3 have aborted before takeiff
06:27:32 <ynpvisitor999®> that sucks
06:32:58 <Eric> ohh, someone tripped over the steamboat logger power cable and turned it off last night :-(
06:33:08 <Dave from B™> I can really notice the dirty dome this morning. Silica permanently affixed to it now?
06:33:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope not
06:35:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought the Steamboat logger broke again some time yesterday
06:35:27 <Eric> well, the daily logger shows no data
06:35:36 <ynpvisitor90> .
06:35:37 <ynpvisitor90> .
06:35:37 <ynpvisitor90> .
06:35:42 <ynpvisitor90> .Aurum
06:35:52 <Eric> nice
06:35:56 <Eric> thanks 90
06:36:00 <ynpvisitor999®> nice catch
06:36:11 <Betty> it´s me
06:36:13 <Dave from B™> wb Betty
06:36:17 <Eric> You who?
06:36:32 <Eric> :-P
06:36:45 <Dave from B™> Whooooo rrrrrrrrr uuuuuuuuuuuuuuu?
06:36:56 <Eric> who who, who who
06:37:07 <Dave from B™> Mike J has to know what movie that is from
06:37:26 <Eric> we really wanna know....
06:37:52 <Mike J> Well, I wanted to say Horton Here's a Who
06:38:08 <Mike J> But, seems to me we have a mash up of Alice in Wonderland and The Who
06:38:23 <Eric> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7JAkM57uIo
06:39:17 <Dave from B™> Alice in Winderalnd is what I was thinking
06:39:56 <Eric> haha
06:39:59 <Dave from B™> Yes, theme song for CSI works as well
06:40:14 <Mike J> Although, I'm willing to bet that The Who were often smoking something similar to that of the catepillar (sp?)
06:40:48 <Dave from B™> haha I would assume so, Mike
06:40:50 <Eric> At the very least Mike :-D
06:43:55 <Eric> amazing how much lava is still pouring out of fissure 8
06:45:17 <Dave from B™> It's crazy...how many cubic yards per day was it? 200 new acres in the Kuhoho Bay
06:45:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder what would happen if fresh magma is injected into Kiilauea's magma chamber while LERZ eruption is still going
06:51:13 <Art> So if I've learned anything over the last week, the fact that the Steamboat logger down equals a government coverup and they will probably just steal some geyser gazers youtube video to prove the point ;)
06:52:09 <Bill K.> It's a conspiracy!
06:52:58 <Dave from B™> Art, you've been on your computer for too long!
06:53:48 <Art> Best comment I've seen while searching for for people stealing my Steamboat videos, "Park Superintendent is leaving because of the Steamboat eruptions and he knows the park is going to explode"
06:54:10 <Dave from B™> :D
06:54:21 <Art> It's like the entire internet has turned into "The Weekly World News"
06:54:48 <Art> Next up "Bat Boy spotted at Steamboat Geyser"
06:55:18 <Mike J> No. Actually it is "Bat Boy Starts Steamboat Geyser"
06:56:18 <ynpvisitor999®> So far it seems not all too many conspiracies have been set up because of SB erupting. Probably because of the Hilina Slump and LERZ eruption going in the time SB became active.
06:56:47 <Eric> Yes, many easier targets
06:57:02 <Betty> you mean the earh is going to explode?!? ;-)
06:57:21 <Betty> * earth
06:57:42 <Eric> implode I think....all the stuff inside already squirted out and we are now a hollow cavity that will collapse
06:57:55 <Betty> true, Eric
06:58:10 <ynpvisitor999®> either way we're screwed according to the conspiracies :D
06:59:10 <Art> Looks like the electronic times line up close to the in basin reports of Steamboat again this time
06:59:30 <Bill K.> Any word on drainage of Cistern yet?
06:59:32 <Eric> or, since the earth is flat, the steam from these geysers will start flipping us like a coin!
06:59:40 <Art> Will be fun to see what the duration was of water phase this time
07:00:17 <Eric> The note on GT says it's dropped some
07:00:19 <Dave from B™> I thought I heard 18 minutes for duration
07:00:55 <ynpvisitor999®> According to ChrisG on GT "[...] Cistern was down slightly upon arrival (0425, based on start of note). At 0616, water level was down several more inches. [...]"
07:01:41 <Bill K.> I'm planning on it being drained tomorrow... but we'll see what Cistern has to say about it.
07:05:22 <Eric> So next steamboat is 6/18 +- 18h
07:05:37 <Eric> 6/18 @ 12:37
07:06:33 <Dave from B™> Can I order one for 6/25 at 1400 please?
07:07:47 <ynpvisitor999®> double interval would be about June 25 @ 0106 ± 48h -ish
07:08:34 <ynpvisitor25> plus minus 48 hours is funny
07:09:32 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jake
07:10:18 <Jake> morning DG
07:11:32 <Jake> update on the previous Steamboat prediction. It was inside the best 48 hour window that had 90% probability. It did not occur inside the smaller windows.
07:12:01 <Jake> Best 12 hour window: 6/18/2018 12:00 to 6/19/2018 00:00 42%
07:12:23 <Jake> Best 18 hour window: 6/18/2018 11:00 to 6/19/2018 05:00 55%
07:12:42 <Jake> Best 24 hour window: 6/18/2018 09:00 to 6/19/2018 09:00 64%
07:12:59 <Jake> Best 48 hour window: 6/17/2018 11:00 to 6/19/2018 11:0096%
07:13:32 <Jake> that 12 hour window is 6/18 noon to midnight with 42% chance
07:18:16 <Eric> So this eruption increased the window a couple of hours :-(
07:19:00 <Dave from B™> Yep...but it's still extremely consistent
07:19:23 <Jake> by this model, it improved the % probability gained by using a 48 hour window
07:19:36 <Eric> For sure. I am definitely curious to the water duration and other details on this eruption.
07:20:10 <ynpvisitor79> Just go before Dave by 12 hours.
07:20:26 <ynpvisitor999®> So far my predicted 7d12h interval with 48h window hasn't failed me once
07:20:29 <Eric> Good prediction 79 :-P
07:21:25 <Eric> 48h window is a little extreme for most
07:22:08 <Eric> Even my 36h window seems extreme for someones ability to stay there that long
07:22:16 <ynpvisitor79> It is a geyser. Has little history. So +-48 hours is not bad.
07:22:21 <Dave from B™> Yep...I sat 18 hours for one steamboat in a 26 hour period...it is exhausting
07:22:55 <Mike J> And, Eric, did you ever think we would be saying there was a Steamboat eruption prediction that had ANY validity?
07:23:12 <ynpvisitor79> No one has to set that long. Just be in park after a minor. If it does more minors.
07:23:38 <Eric> haha...No, but as Steamboat has been incredibly consistent, I am hoping we can narrow this down more.
07:24:09 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
07:24:09 <ynpvisitor25> Sure fire way to see one is be there.
07:24:15 <Kevin L™> Morning
07:24:27 <Eric> At the right time 25 :-D
07:24:35 <Eric> Morning Kevin
07:25:08 <Eric> Being there for 18h and then leaving right before it erupts doesn't help
07:25:53 <Dave from B™> Sometimes life gets in the way
07:26:05 <Eric> exactly!
07:26:27 <Dave from B™> 79, minors can occur 48 hours before an eruption
07:27:04 <Eric> I hope this one falls more within the mean than the extremes for people.
07:27:26 <Kevin L™> I thought it was pretty mean to Dave.
07:27:34 <ynpvisitor79> Well then, I guess if you want to see it, you will have to watch it for 2 days, or be lucky.
07:28:15 <Dave from B™> I had a great weekend. No regrets from me
07:29:06 <Eric> Glad to hear it Dave
07:29:53 <ynpvisitor25> the one on the 19th had the big minors just prior to the start - the others have spread out more
07:30:04 <ynpvisitor79> Did you know before you left, or find out after you got there? I have not read todays log
07:30:16 <Stephen G.> Even with narrowing an eruption to a 48 hour window, unless you are sitting at Steamboat the entire time, you still have to be fairly lucky to see Steamboat during the day.
07:30:21 <Dave from B™> I found out before I left
07:30:37 <Eric> Hi Stephen!
07:31:00 <Eric> Glad to see you in the chat :-D
07:31:07 <ynpvisitor79> So it was not entirely mean to you. and there is next weekend.
07:35:25 <Dave from B™> Next weekend is Father's Day and my wife's birthday, so I'm taking the next round off
07:35:43 <ynpvisitor25> and no matter how long you sit there, there will still be dozens of people who have a walk-up!
07:36:09 <Dave from B™> I will arrive in the Norris area around 1030 June 25 for my 6 night trip. Plan your Steamboat arrivals accordingly
07:36:16 <Eric> Dave....plan on doing monday!
07:36:37 <Kevin L™> That way the Sunday crowd will get to see it.
07:36:40 <Eric> Math is with you if it doesn't go before you get there!
07:36:59 <Eric> hahaha....so cruel Kevin :-P
07:37:03 <Stephen G.> Good to see you too, Eric! :) Making my first appearance with chat in a while - good to be here!
07:37:26 <Mike J> Have fun all. I'm off to Kevin's neck of the woods.
07:37:39 <Eric> Have fun in the Sun
07:38:37 <Dave from B™> Eric, I am use to Kevin's behavior. He's only trying to get even. I can always remind him about rocks
07:39:08 <Dave from B™> Kevin, you might want to pack your winter parka for your trip to YNP
07:43:37 <Dave from B™> FYI for 2018: Steamboat 9 Giant 5 F&M 5
07:43:54 <Dave from B™> I still feel Giant will beat Steamboat this year
07:44:35 <ynpvisitor79> A fathers day Giant and Steamboat would be grand.
07:49:38 <Dave from B™> I don't expect Giant that soon
07:53:41 <Dave from B™> Today's quiz...put big 3 mentioned earlier in order of next eruptions. Bragging rights for the winner
07:54:01 <Dave from B™> I will pick F&M, Steamboat, Giant
07:54:06 <ynpvisitor999®> F&M, Steamboat Giant
07:54:23 <Kevin L™> With nationwide online betting could we make bets on them?
07:54:36 <ynpvisitor79> You the bookie?
07:55:29 <Kevin L™> NPS shpuld be the bookie and use the funds to maintain the park. Maybe put a bench at Aurum.
07:55:36 <Jake> Steamboat, Giant, F&M
07:55:57 <Michael> Steamboat, F&M, Giant
07:56:12 <Stephen G.> Steamboat, F&M, Giant
07:57:48 <ynpvisitor79> If they ran book, they would loose lots of money.
07:58:05 <Michael> And for the wild-card round, Morning, Giantess, Splendid.
07:58:42 <ynpvisitor79> Well enjoy dreaming, got to go.
07:58:50 <ynpvisitor999®> bye 79
07:59:00 <Michael> bye 79
07:59:09 <Kevin L™> Probably right 79. Take care.
08:00:20 <Dave from B™> Let me throw another wrench in the quiz....Does anyone think Steamboat may go 2 more times before the next Giant?
08:01:57 <Jake> "may"? absolutely. seems like a 50/50 chance that happens
08:02:46 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say no, Dave
08:02:51 <Eric> for sure...I think we have 2 steamboats before giant
08:03:04 <Michael> It sounds like a 50/50 shot to me too, but I'll pick Giant. It has more room to shorten its interval if it wants to.
08:03:08 <Kevin L™> I am easy. Just give me a few good BH, some 2b Grands, and a couple of Aurums. I will be happy.
08:04:57 <Eric> I am going to go steamboat, giant, F&M
08:06:36 <Stephen G.> I'd go Giant erupting before 2 Steamboats, even though it's going to be close.
08:09:26 <Eric> The good thing is gazers this week don't really have to worry much about steamboat, giant or F&M. They can watch many other awesome geysers!
08:10:37 <Artt> F&M did just have an event cycle 2 days ago, and if river levels are dropping... you know it's a spiteful geyser at times ;)
08:11:16 <Michael> F&M interval of 4-10 days wouldn't surprise me here. If I was in the Park, I would plan on missing it and enjoy my visit in other ways..
08:11:47 <Artt> Last year it pulled a 4 day interval after 103 day interval
08:12:03 <Artt> This time last June
08:14:00 <Michael> With any luck somebody will catch it from up close.
08:20:34 <Kevin L™> That leaves Dave out.
08:20:50 <Dave from B™> :P:)
08:22:42 <ynpvisitor25> it is nice to just do your own thing and not be held hostage
08:23:34 <Kevin L™> You are so right 25.
08:23:51 <Dave from B™> I actually don't mind sitting and waiting. I had a great time talking to everyone on the Steamboat platform
08:25:58 <Kevin L™> I did wait 40 hours to see my first F&M. I decided after that since my visits were few and limited time I would give the long ones limited time and make sure I did get to see something.
08:27:35 <Kevin L™> I only have 5 days this trip and it is going to be my last except perhaps a few day trips or possibly an overnight from my Daughter's place so I don't think I will catch it.
08:29:09 <ynpvisitor25> it may come to that with Steamboat for some folks with a certain # of days
08:29:37 <Eric> Alright...I have ONE exact data point between exact cistern fill and exact eruption time: 4d4h2m
08:29:55 <Eric> Hopefully next time Bill grabs the cistern logs we will have 2 data points :-D
08:30:17 <Kevin L™> I have never been bummed by something I missed (except the Giant while I was eating at Lower Hamms). I just enjoy what I do get.
08:31:48 <Kevin L™> Kilauea just turned color
08:32:23 <Kevin L™> Line at West is awful. :p
08:32:28 <Dave from B™> West entrance is busy
08:32:31 <ynpvisitor30> Got to agree Kevin - I've never had a bad day in Yellowstone
08:33:02 <Kevin L™> Worst day at the park beats the best day at work.
08:35:51 <Dave from B™> Then you haven't worked for me:D:D:D
08:37:07 <Kevin L™> I think you would be able to pay me in fish.
08:40:24 <Eric> not a lot of leaves left on trees in the kilauea static cam :-(
08:41:13 <Dave from B™> How long before vegetation begins to grow again
08:41:42 <Kevin L™> Wonder how Rusty is doing.
08:41:49 <Eric> I assume once the VOG and ash stop, the plant life will start to grow again rapidly.
08:44:01 <Dave from B™> I wonder how much tourisn has fallen on the entire Big island this year
08:44:23 <Kevin L™> It is surprising how quick things grow after something like this.
08:45:44 <Kevin L™> I remember they were talking about all the new meadows the fires of 88 were going to make. Those areas are totally thick with trees now!
08:46:16 <Kevin L™> Hard to believe that was 30 years ago.
08:47:13 <Michael> I haven't been back much. It would be great when the new growth loses enough lower branches that a person can walk between trees again.
08:47:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
08:48:00 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/---
08:48:02 <Michael> The thickets of wall-to-wall Christmas trees were impenetrable.
08:49:46 <Kevin L™> Good timing Betty
08:50:11 <Betty> hi Kevin
08:50:35 <Betty> did you scare Daisy?
08:50:46 <Kevin L™> Dave did.
08:51:07 <Betty> he only scares Steamboat
08:56:26 <Kevin L™> Looking like another 1b
08:58:37 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
09:00:45 <ynpvisitor999®> T1Q
09:02:16 <ynpvisitor999®> rare to see Grand go outside of OF's window these days
09:11:05 <Eric> Well, I just looked at the last couple of steamvalve logger files. I see absolutely no correlations between what it is doing and steamboat. :-(
09:11:53 <Eric> Doesn't mean there are none, but not I sure couldn't find any.
09:15:02 <Eric> strike that "not" :-)
09:18:01 <Michael> We aren't too bad at figuring out double negatives.
09:18:22 <Dave from B™> haha
09:18:45 <Kevin L™> Always with the negative waves....
09:19:30 <Eric> OF
09:19:38 <Eric> super slow start
09:20:47 <ynpvisitor999®> How to use a geyser: 1) as a wake-up mechanism
09:23:13 <Michael> 2) as an outdoor sauna/steam room
09:24:05 <Dave from B™> 3/ as a gathering point for the homeless
09:24:28 <Eric> 3) worlds largest bidet?
09:27:59 <Craig> Bring a large mug and brew some coffee?
09:28:02 <ynpvisitor999®> if you say so, Eric
09:31:42 <Jimbo Argon> Excuse to get a car repainted?
09:32:13 <Michael> 4) A convenient shower/washing machine combination
09:32:19 <Eric> actually, the silica provides better protection for your paint :-D
09:32:49 <Eric> extra layers
09:32:50 <Kevin L™> A hole in the ground to put your money in.
09:33:49 <Michael> I was idly wondering ... if a rental car gets the Steamboat treatment, who is on the hook for scrubbing the exterior clean again?
09:34:07 <Kevin L™> Ask Art.
09:35:07 <Kevin L™> Lines a West are still horrible.
09:38:06 <Eric> lake looks pretty this morning
09:38:27 <Eric> ohh, or saturday evening :-P
09:44:37 <ynpvisitor105> It is cold, windy and unpleasant in the UGB. :(
09:45:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:46:11 <Kevin L™> L-O-N-G interval
09:46:56 <ynpvisitor999®> tall one too
10:07:58 <Rice> So was anyone at Steamboat last night?
10:08:32 <Kevin L™> Dave wasn't.
10:08:48 <Rice> Yea I have gathered that!
10:09:49 <Kevin L™> Find out when he plans to be there and show up 12h before or 12h after he is there. You won't miss it.
10:10:15 <Rice> You are bad....
10:10:19 <Rice> But not a bad idea
10:10:26 <Eric> Sorry 105....if you are on the chat from the basin and using mobile, try http://chat.geysertimes.org/mchat.php
10:11:04 <Eric> He is the indicator gazer
10:11:05 <Dave from B™> Kevin, be careful....I'll UPS you some really smelly fish
10:11:35 <Eric> DI
10:12:00 <Rice> Dave, my friends father had someone put fish under the seat of his car when he went on his Honeymoon. Smell never came out of car.
10:12:45 <Dave from B™> Rice, that's funny
10:12:56 <Rice> He parked the car at Logan Airport in July, really nasty.
10:13:05 <Eric> eek
10:13:43 <Eric> How is it working there on mobile Dave?
10:13:49 <Dave on mobile> Testing
10:13:52 <Rice> He told me that after I filled his sons car full of packing peanuts.
10:14:09 <Dave on mobile> I like it
10:14:31 <Eric> Much easier and faster than other interfaces we had
10:14:39 <Rice> They were the biodegradable ones, but his wife was still pissed.
10:15:00 <Eric> lines are down at West entrance
10:15:10 <Dave from B™> Yep...bookmarked and ready to go for my trip on June 25
10:15:20 <Eric> awesome!
10:15:35 <Eric> Hope you get steamboat, giant & F&M :-D
10:16:53 <Dave from B™> I will be at Steamboat when Giant goes, Steamboat will go overnight and I will get F&M
10:17:19 <Craig> Guess who'll be at steamboat June 18th?
10:17:39 <ynpvisitor999®> you?
10:17:46 <Craig> yup yup! :D
10:18:15 <Kevin L™> Stay away from Aurum!!!
10:18:37 <Dave from B™> Yeah, Craig...stay away from Aurum
10:20:05 <Eric> Hope you get it Craig!
10:20:18 <Craig> Lol what did I do to Aurum?
10:20:46 <Dave from B™> Craig, that comment was meant for me but I thought I'd pass the buck
10:21:08 <Craig> Lol Aurum doesn't like me anyways
10:21:19 <Eric> Aurum doesn't like anybody!
10:21:53 <Eric> Maybe other than ScottG who got something crazy like 50 aurums in one summer!
10:21:58 <ynpvisitor25> if all the gazers are at Steamboat - go to North Goggle!!
10:22:01 <Eric> Spring/summer
10:34:09 <ynpvisitor999®> alright, who cut the cable?
10:34:25 <Dave from B™> not me
10:34:46 <Kevin L™> They got the controls too.
10:35:20 <Eric> dang
10:35:38 <Eric> Yep, camera is unreachable :-(
10:36:04 <Betty> bah
10:36:25 <Kevin L™> Odd, the static cam is working.
10:37:11 <Eric> static cam is 2 minutes in the future!
10:38:46 <sparekitty> well, like someone said earlier, the lake is sure beautiful today...
10:39:32 <Dave from B™> Kevin, techs doing upgrades?
10:40:14 <Kevin L™> I have not been informed of any.
10:40:19 <Eric> or saturday evening sparekitty :-D
10:40:52 <Dave from B™> Maybe they are taking the cam down and moving it to Steamboat
10:40:54 <Kevin L™> If static is working it means there is power so it has to be an issue with either the router or server.
10:44:19 <Eric> or camera itself
10:45:01 <Dave from B™> Maybe dome is being changed
10:45:50 <Kevin L™> Don't even think that Eric
10:46:31 <sparekitty> oops, did not notice date on lake pic...oh well. it's still pretty!
10:47:36 <Betty> OF ie
10:54:35 <Kevin L™> I wonder if Joe got Steamboat.
10:54:52 <Dave from B™> I think only Jeff Cross got it
10:55:02 <Kevin L™> Bummer.
10:55:11 <Kevin L™> At least someone got it.
11:05:29 <Kevin L™> Back
11:05:51 <Kevin L™> .
11:05:51 <Kevin L™> .
11:05:52 <Kevin L™> .
11:05:53 <Kevin L™> .
11:05:53 <Kevin L™> .
11:05:54 <Kevin L™> .
11:06:23 <Betty> thanks
11:08:48 <Michael> LEt me guess, I just missed Aurum?
11:09:17 <Betty> not that I know
11:09:30 <Kevin L™> No, the cam came back on.
11:09:59 <Michael> Oh. I didn't know it was gone in the first place. Shows how much I'm paying attention right now.
11:14:33 <ynpvisitor74> interesting note Mouth 'empty'. the last few years the flow from up the hill has been going in it.
11:15:17 <ynpvisitor74> might be the reason it didn't erupt.
11:18:42 <Eric> That would make sense 74...I am hoping someone reports the little sput above marmot cave
11:19:01 <Eric> and gets video/pictures
11:36:04 <ynpvisitor23> Imagine being alone at Steamboat when it has a major eruption. It must have been awesome
11:36:27 <ynpvisitor23> the sound must have been incredible
11:37:44 <Michael> And that's just the sound of the person shrieking. I'll bet the geyser is loud too.
11:41:28 <ynpvisitor23> I bet Jeff was quiet
11:41:31 <ynpvisitor23> if I had to bet
11:42:12 <ynpvisitor23> I hope he does a write up
11:48:45 <Dave from B™> It is much louder when people leave.
12:06:03 <Dave from B™> Kevin, you awake?
12:07:12 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:22:49 <Betty> looks cold
12:23:08 <Dave from B™> 46F
12:23:12 <Kevin L™> Yes it does.
12:24:58 <Betty> I bet you don´t regret to not to go today, Dave
12:25:17 <Kevin L™> Wind is listed as SW15G27
12:25:27 <Dave from B™> yuck
12:25:56 <Dave from B™> I would have been prepared. I even had my snow pants and winter coat packed
12:26:04 <Betty> Daisy does not like it either
12:26:54 <ynpvisitor23> it would have been tonight that would have been tough, to stay out
12:26:59 <Dave from B™> Not a lot of women do....but ducks do:)
12:27:01 <ynpvisitor23> going to be much colder than last night
12:27:22 <Dave from B™> yep...I wasn't looking forward to it but I was going to give it the old college try
12:28:51 <ynpvisitor23> I am glad it went before you left Dave. That has at least been a good part of it, you are not driving 7 hours for nothing
12:29:29 <Betty> OF
12:29:35 <Dave from B™> That's true. I keep wondering at what point I wouldn't turn around and just go watch the steam phase
12:29:46 <ynpvisitor23> (both ways I mean, how long does it take you to get to Norris?)
12:30:12 <Dave from B™> 3.5 hours with a stop and construction
12:30:13 <ynpvisitor23> I think you will see it on your visit. How many days are you here?
12:30:34 <ynpvisitor23> so the 3.5 includes construction? That's not too bad...
12:30:39 <Dave from B™> I'm there 6 days but it might be due the day I get there. I could miss it on both ends
12:30:52 <ynpvisitor23> Dave, think POSITIVE
12:30:59 <Dave from B™> 4:15 to OF...Norris is much shorter trip
12:31:19 <Dave from B™> haha...it is hard to be positive right now
12:31:42 <ynpvisitor23> If the bison have moved to the back country, you should be fine getting between OF and Norris
12:31:55 <Dave from B™> Hey...but I do have the packing down pat. I've done it 4 times already
12:32:27 <Dave from B™> I don't want to spend half my 6 night trip at Norris, either
12:32:37 <ynpvisitor23> well once you went, right?, and had to leave...
12:32:58 <Dave from B™> Yes, I went 1 time..aborted mission 3 times
12:33:03 <ynpvisitor23> well, that will depend on how much you want to see Steamboat. Now it requires a 3 day watch
12:34:11 <ynpvisitor23> It is weird to see SteveO reports from the lower basin. That is the first time in his two trips he has been there I think
12:34:29 <ynpvisitor23> Fountain is perhaps mocking him, sounds like he ran into some stall behavior
12:36:21 <ynpvisitor23> Geyser Hill looks chilly
12:36:54 <Betty> everything looks chilly
12:37:03 <Kevin L™> Wonder how long Daisy will take now.
12:37:06 <Betty> nasty winds
12:38:45 <Dave from B™> So, has Fountain been doing a lot of stalls?
12:39:03 <ynpvisitor25> scenario for Dave from B™, what if it lengthens out, and you spend day 1 2 and 3 there, and it doesn't erput until day 5? Would you keep going?
12:40:20 <Dave from B™> The minute it becomes unpredictable, people will have to invest a LOT of time at Steamboat. I hope to see it before it gets to that point.
12:40:57 <Dave from B™> I would probably invest 5 days but I sure wouldn't enjoy 5 days...that is why I was trying to get it before my big trip
12:41:44 <ynpvisitor25> You can always Just Say No - and stay in the UGB by choice.
12:42:07 <Dave from B™> I could but this is the HOLY GRAIL of geysers.
12:42:17 <ynpvisitor72> Any word on the level of Cistern?
12:42:32 <Jake> it would depend on what Cistern is doing and activity out of Steambot for me
12:42:38 <Jake> Daisy
12:42:43 <Dave from B™> Nothing new on GT. I haven't checked FB lately
12:43:14 <Kevin L™> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSGkBWYDmrM
12:43:35 <Dave from B™> haha
12:43:41 <Michael> Daisy
12:43:48 <Dave from B™> ok...I have some seriuos lag
12:45:05 <ynpvisitor25> Think of it this way - you might get to see it with ONLY 10 days of waiting!
12:45:05 <Kevin L™> Lot shorter interval and a nice eruption
12:45:05 <Betty> I love that film, Kevin
12:45:54 <ynpvisitor25> A year ago if someone told me I could see it by waiting 10 days, I'd be on it!
12:46:36 <Dave from B™> 25, I agree. This may be the only chance to see it
12:47:01 <Kevin L™> It fit
12:47:26 <Kevin L™> Dave's comment perfectly
12:47:36 <Kevin L™> I love it too.
12:47:46 <Kevin L™> The end is too funny.
12:49:34 <Michael> Purely hypothetical, but I imagine I'd stick near Steamboat as long as it was still doing things that looked like the same build-up.
12:50:25 <Michael> Not sure what the Steamboat equivalent of Aurum's "summer-mode" is, but that would convince me to give up.
12:58:54 <Dave from B™> Kevin, believe it or not....it's still too wet to put in that stupid drainfield in this awful clay soil
12:59:14 <Dave from B™> septic has been pumped 3 times in last 8 weeks
12:59:30 <Kevin L™> Wow. I hope it dries out before Winter.
13:00:09 <Dave from B™> It's getting close...probably another 2 weeks
13:00:13 <Betty> where´s Jim S? no posts by him for some days
13:00:33 <Dave from B™> On cold days, he sometimes stays home at West
13:00:42 <Kevin L™> Scrubbing Steamboat off his car?
13:01:07 <Betty> oh, he was at Great Fountain today
13:01:16 <Dave from B™> Did I see a cloth go by?
13:06:46 <Kevin L™> Nice Bee burp
13:07:49 <ynpvisitor25> surprised we don't have Lone Pine reports today - that's a good car geyser
13:09:15 <Eric> mugwump too
13:09:20 <Betty> Slot is steamy
13:10:35 <Kevin L™> Lion is steamy too
13:11:17 <Dave from B™> So, Ryan and 8 others saw the 3 biggies in 5 days and some change....Do you think that time will be beat this year?
13:12:01 <Betty> place your bets here _______________________
13:12:26 <Eric> no
13:12:31 <Eric> Lion ini
13:12:38 <Dave from B™> I think it will be beaten....I think somebody will do it in under 4 days
13:12:57 <Betty> I´m lagged
13:13:34 <Dave from B™> We just need Giant and F&M to shorten their intervals
13:16:51 <Stephen G.> I don't think it will beat either. Too many variables for the "Big Three" right now for me to feel confident in somebody beating the five days.
13:17:10 <Stephen G.> get beat*
13:17:51 <Dave from B™> You have 2 factors....if Steamboat gets inconsistent and you have to spend 48 hours up there, you might miss a Giant or an F&M.
13:18:03 <Dave from B™> Other factor is if intervals are too long
13:18:22 <Kevin L™> You would miss the Steamboat anyway.
13:18:45 <Dave from B™> haha...I told my wife you would punish me today:)
13:20:57 <Stephen G.> Yes. Steamboat and whether it will keep its nice intervals and how long this active phase will last are the biggest factors. Then you have the Giant and F&M intervals being too long and not as predictable. Night eruptions by any of the three are another factor.
13:23:45 <Dave from B™> It will be fun to watch
13:38:45 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Have a great evening everyone!
13:39:05 <Betty> see ya Dave
13:44:53 <Betty> headed out too, night all
13:45:09 <Kevin L™> Night Betty.
13:45:16 <Kevin L™> Time for BH!
13:57:10 <Jake> I'm hoping BH can stick to the GT prediction in this cold, wet weather 🤞
14:03:49 <Jake> BHI
14:03:51 <Jake> .
14:03:51 <Jake> .
14:05:32 <sparekitty> love getting those texts!
14:05:38 <Eric> Fake news...I see no BHI :-P
14:05:44 <Bill> Whoa... what's up wth the seismometer?
14:05:54 <Eric> Look at all those people walking away!
14:06:21 <Kevin L™> Dave broke it Bill
14:06:24 <Eric> look like normal daytime activity to me Bill
14:06:47 <Kevin L™> Looks odd to me Eric
14:07:13 <Eric> hmm
14:07:38 <Ryan> Hiya, Bill. Sorry we didn't see you this morning. Our plans suddenly had to change. Get all the data and work done you needed?
14:07:53 <Ryan> Glad it erupted for you, even if you werent there for the water phase.
14:07:59 <fishynp> This is Jamie Farrell from the University of Utah. All that noise you see on station YNM during daytime hours is people walking around Norris. The station is located in the Museum so it records a lot of cultural noise.
14:08:01 <Eric> Guess it's a little "thicker" than normal
14:08:39 <Eric> BillC is stomping around up in the bookstore :-P
14:08:41 <Kevin L™> This is the one that is odd: http://quake.utah.edu/station/heli/YFT.png?1528754867495
14:08:46 <Kitt> Hello
14:08:47 <Bill> Thanks Jamie.
14:08:48 <Eric> Sorry...Billb
14:09:12 <Bill> How's the data processing coming along?
14:09:42 <Eric> Wow...that is strange Kevin/Bill
14:09:47 <Eric> Hi Kitt!
14:09:48 <Kitt> watched two hours of Steamboat, went to the phone tree and sent out texts, ate breakfast in the UGB
14:09:55 <Bill> Ryan, I didn't end up going to NGB today since it went off last night. I'm going tomorrow to put in an audio recorder and some other stuff.
14:10:00 <fishynp> station YFT is located near a water tank south of Old Faithful. I'm not 100% sure but they could be pumping the tank and we are recording it.
14:10:04 <Kitt> drove home by 1245
14:10:38 <ynpvisitor25> fishynp, got any connections to get yesterday's YVO graphs to update?
14:10:42 <Eric> I look forward to see the cistern and steamboat loggers this week :-)
14:10:53 <Kitt> had a sow and two cubs walk across the road in front of me
14:11:08 <Bill> I'll get them posted tomorrow evening, Eric.
14:11:08 <Eric> Nice...as long as you weren't going fast :-D
14:11:17 <Kitt> closed my windows and stopped to see if they were still visable
14:11:36 <fishynp> I have all the Steamboat data downloaded and converted but I am leaving for Hawaii on Wednesday to put seismometers on Kilauea so I won't be able to analyze the data until I get back.
14:11:38 <Kitt> the cubs had gone under the railing and the sow over it
14:11:51 <Eric> Cool...I am hoping to get some accurate intervals on the cistern fill to steamboat starts
14:12:09 <Jake> it's YFT @ Old Faithful with the interesting signal
14:12:11 <fishynp> I can ask but I suspect it is a networking issue.
14:12:28 <Eric> Yep, Jamie just mentioned it could be a pump in nearby tank
14:12:33 <Kitt> all of a sudden 3 heads popped up and looked at me right beside my vehicle (cut but I left immediately and no one else saw them)
14:12:34 <Eric> Never seen that signal before though
14:12:55 <Jake> oh, thanks, I see that discussion now!
14:12:56 <Eric> ahhh
14:12:56 <Kevin L™> Sounds like an interesting week Jamie. Looking forward to a report of that!
14:13:21 <fishynp> It will definitely be interesting. We'll see how close we can get to the action.
14:13:35 <Kitt> I meant cute, not cut
14:13:49 <Eric> I assume you are adding seismos to crater
14:13:59 <Kevin L™> Tell Rusty we say hi!
14:14:02 <Eric> Not the rift area
14:14:16 <ynpvisitor25> fishynp, thanks - in the past sometimes they had to have someone do something on-site
14:14:19 <fishynp> A ring around the summit crater as well as down on the Lower East Rift Zone around the active eruption.
14:14:54 <Kevin L™> That sounds like one of those "You mean I get to do this AND get paid for it" jobs.
14:15:02 <Eric> ahh, very cool...amazing the change that is happening there. Stay safe!
14:15:13 <fishynp> I'm pretty lucky.
14:15:45 <Jake> prediction: the Steamboat seismo signal will show the reservoir as directly underneath the Norris parking lot. Parking lot will need to be closed until further notice.
14:18:23 <Kevin L™> Jake, was BHI ie or start?
14:20:40 <Kitt> Climb Beehive, Climb!
14:20:59 <Kitt> mean Wyoming wind
14:22:38 <Kitt> at 7 am Old Faithful was 33 degrees with a bad wind and Worland is 78, sunny, and breezy
14:23:01 <Kevin L™> When do you go back Kitt?
14:23:06 <Jake> I had BHI ns Kevin, 1602 in basin report
14:23:25 <Kitt> the 20th
14:23:26 <Kevin L™> Nice long one Jake.
14:24:00 <Kitt> Thomas and I just spent almost two hours scrubbing the suburban
14:24:13 <Kevin L™> I am supposed to meet my Brother there on the 23rd. Last time he was there you could park at Riverside!
14:24:34 <Kitt> wow, is he in for a shock
14:25:06 <Kitt> he will be doing good if he can park at the Lower Ham's
14:25:12 <Kevin L™> The road went between the Lodge and the Inn with a traffic light.
14:26:27 <Kitt> well back to unpacking and laundry
14:27:30 <Craig> nice steamphase on BH
14:28:55 <Craig> must be windy out
14:40:04 <Eric> lion #2 ie
15:32:18 <Kevin L™> Nice contrast
15:32:51 <Craig> yeah wow
15:34:00 <Kevin L™> Grand
15:34:26 <Craig> also really nice contrast on grand
15:43:37 <Eric> Nice perspective about Steamboat and the Seismo work they are doing up there - https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/article_home.html?vaid=30
15:43:46 <Eric> thanks fishynp :-D
15:53:50 <ynpvisitor98> Thanks Eric, Good article from the USGS
15:56:27 <ALL CAPS> oooh Lion
15:57:23 <ALL CAPS> so whats Dave's plan next week? He is still batting 1000
15:57:53 <ALL CAPS> back earlier than i thought. can take the cam is desired
15:58:38 <ALL CAPS> i see BH and Grand are off the table
15:59:42 <ALL CAPS> interesting reading the Ryan/Bruce/Eric Steamboat back and forth on FB........Steamboat has such a short window, be there or you might miss it
16:00:08 <ALL CAPS> and get there a bit early just in case ....
16:00:17 <kcmule> congrats on the win Graham. I think Ovie is still on his bender
16:00:36 <ALL CAPS> haha, fun seeing im celebrate after all these years
16:00:44 <ALL CAPS> hope he recovers in time for next season
16:01:06 <ALL CAPS> and thanks ...... i will change my nick after tomorrows celebration day
16:01:07 <kcmule> one can imagine what the Cup must have gone through /before/ they gave it a chaperone
16:01:29 <ALL CAPS> where has the chaperone been hiding?
16:02:09 <ALL CAPS> when are you heading to steamboat kc?
16:02:10 <kcmule> in the wings somewhere. kid rock threw it into a pool one year and dented it, that was the last straw.
16:03:11 <ALL CAPS> its ok, it can have a crack, makes it historic like the liberty bell
16:03:44 <kcmule> might head to norris in a couple weeks, depends on some stuff but it's on the blackboard
16:04:16 <ALL CAPS> blackboard? not carved in stone?
16:05:23 <kcmule> lightly etched in soft wax would be more apt
16:06:12 <ALL CAPS> just make sure you go a day before Dave
16:06:59 <kcmule> will probably try to thread the needle by getting there on the night of the 5th day
16:07:22 <kcmule> very late and very tired, like I was when I flew across the state to try to catch Morning
16:09:09 <kcmule> that worked out so well...
16:09:32 <ynpvisitor23> as in it did NOT?
16:09:39 <ALL CAPS> aboiut time you went back!
16:09:45 <ynpvisitor23> I hope they are going to put the benches back
16:10:15 <kcmule> I got an earthquake instead 23
16:10:41 <ynpvisitor23> ?? really? where?
16:11:20 <ynpvisitor23> oh, the LGB earthquakes
16:11:21 <kcmule> at Morning, the epicenter was about a mile away I think the vec said
16:12:16 <ynpvisitor23> you waited too long
16:12:31 <ynpvisitor23> I hope that does not happen to you with Steamboat
16:13:10 <ynpvisitor23> is your cabin OK ALL CAPS?
16:13:24 <ALL CAPS> thats the only trip i have seen you kc ... you have been neglecting the geysers
16:13:34 <kcmule> yeah if both Dave and I try for it, we're sure to bork it
16:14:03 <ALL CAPS> i have a cabin the last 2 weeks of Sept this year, later than normal since i messed up the dates somehow
16:14:15 <kcmule> we've seen each other on trips in the past just before all the cam stuff
16:14:17 <ALL CAPS> but it is a good time of the year for Giant and F&M
16:14:36 <ALL CAPS> ah, ok. i cant remember back pre-cam
16:15:01 <ynpvisitor23> tired of the labor day crowd ALL CAPS?
16:15:29 <ALL CAPS> haha, no. i will miss them ... but met many at Steamboat
16:16:43 <ALL CAPS> almost 9 years since i started on the cam. wow
16:18:26 <ynpvisitor23> I keep getting E mails for the Google discussion group with long E mails from who knows? The days of adding names to posts are over I guess.
16:18:43 <ynpvisitor23> someone sent one today, and there is no link to who they are.
16:19:59 <ynpvisitor23> just found out who they are by going to the group page. I prefer it being listed in the E mail.
16:20:47 <ALL CAPS> Bruce? its in the email
16:21:23 <ALL CAPS> agree its good to put their name at the end too
16:21:30 <ynpvisitor23> how do you find that? I opened the E mail and there was nothing about it being from Bruce, until I went to the group page
16:22:23 <ALL CAPS> The title says 'Bruce Jenses' via GOSA Discussion Board
16:22:32 <ALL CAPS> oe Jensen
16:23:06 <ALL CAPS> usinf Yahoo mail on my phone
16:27:07 <ynpvisitor23> yeah, must be my mail server
16:27:17 <ynpvisitor23> does not show who it is from
16:27:34 <Eric> Yep, the persons name and email is in the headers of the email. Probably still good practice to add your name to the end of an email :-D
16:28:02 <Eric> I never look at an email until I know who it's from :-D
16:31:28 <ALL CAPS> glad Jeff caught steamboat. have any details surfaced yet?
16:37:37 <ALL CAPS> and congrats to GT for reaching its initial funding goal
17:35:38 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
17:44:38 <ynpvisitor19> Food at Lodge terrible even for food at Lodge :thumbsdown:
17:55:53 <Kevin L™> Normal food at the Lodge cannot be fed to animals due to cruelty laws.
17:56:27 <Ryan> Huh, I ate there three days ago and loved it
17:57:24 <ynpvisitor25> what did you have Ryan?
18:07:22 <Eric> Lot of burning behind fissure 8
18:08:38 <Ryan> I had the bison meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and veggies.
18:11:13 <ynpvisitor25> sounds good to me :thumbsup:
18:32:53 <Kevin L™> Hard to eat there when I can get Prime Rib with baked potato, veggies, and a salad bar for 10 bucks.
18:59:24 <Eric> Nice sunset
19:02:45 <kcmule> bueno
19:04:16 <Kevin L™> Это очень красиво
19:11:08 <kcmule> muy bien
19:11:36 <Kevin L™> One of the best I havee ever seen on the cam
19:11:46 <Kevin L™> Needs an Aurum
19:12:11 <kcmule> ditto
19:12:25 <kcmule> great on the big screen
19:13:07 <ynpvisitor17> So nice
