05:27:23 <ynpvisitor47> Timing is everything
05:27:46 <ynpvisitor76> no indy
05:32:56 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie above cone
05:33:40 <ynpvisitor72> that will upset the late rising cabin dwellers
05:33:45 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
05:35:44 <ynpvisitor999®> seen SC's cone, I wonder if it had taller eruptions (like OF's nowadays) in the past
05:42:39 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy ie

05:59:24 <ynpvisitor999®> dang it OF
05:59:42 <ynpvisitor999®> just when I spot it, you block it :(
06:06:13 <ynpvisitor115> :p. Internet hiccup
06:07:31 <ynpvisitor87> Sightings always good though! Ya can't guess on the next one without a sighting.
06:09:31 <Kevin Cedar> Just having data is good. I know that there were at least three eruptions while I was there that were not listed because they were not seen.
06:10:08 <Betty> morning all, afternoon DG
06:10:24 <Kent> By the way, Ho for the Yellowstone! Lodge cabin with decadent shower for the next three nights. No plans except to sit and watch water squirt out of the ground, or not. And to NOT eat at the Lodge.
06:10:45 <Kent> Good afternoon Betty
06:10:56 <Betty> hi Kent
06:18:56 <ynpvisitor72> good luck with the geysers Kent. eating opportunities are limited in the park, not any good options really other than Snow Lodge
06:19:10 <ynpvisitor72> and morning Betty
06:20:31 <Graham> thats better
06:20:45 <Graham> .
06:20:57 <Kevin Cedar> Do NOT eat at the Geyser Grill. Worse than high school cafeteria food. :p
06:20:59 <Betty> morning Graham
06:21:12 <Kent> You don't go to the park for the food, but it is still something they ought to work on. Lodge is so bad Xanterra no longer gives you the option of rating it on your post visit survey.
06:21:30 <Graham> lower hams isnt much better
06:21:57 <Graham> i got a survey
06:22:23 <Kent> I don't think the Freedom Fries at the grill are bad. I am having breakfast at Lower Hams in the morning with an actual gazer. I am excited.
06:23:05 <Kevin Cedar> If they don't send me a survey they will get a response anyway.
06:23:08 <Graham> there are usually a lot there ... and SteveO's grill is often active outside
06:24:07 <Kent> On your survey did they ask you to rate the Lodge cafeteria? They did'nt on mine.
06:24:18 <Graham> his Grill could be cosing shortly as Grands window is opening
06:26:14 <Kent> I am looking forward to the conversation more than the food. I have terrific Jere Bush memories from LH. Miss Jere's sense of humor very much.
06:26:25 <Kevin Cedar> I am looking forward to homemade buttermilk biscuits with fresh eggs.
06:26:37 <Kent> Snob
06:30:42 <Kent> Park ought to try Subway and McDonald's just to see how they would do. Out in the real world they are mediocre, but reliably so.
06:31:14 <Dave from OF> Almost time for castle
06:31:40 <Betty> hi again Dave
06:32:11 <Kevin Cedar> How about Carl's Jr.?
06:33:16 <Kevin Cedar> You going to be able to catch another hot period Dave?
06:33:24 <Kent> I am in favor of trying any franchise.
06:34:20 <Kevin Cedar> Right Kent, anything would be better than the trash they have now.
06:35:56 <Kent> I am also sympathetic to Xanterra's labor problem, but am certain a better solution can be found. Classic "If we can put a man on the moon......."
06:37:02 <Kent> Good looking wolves. Love pooches.
06:38:47 <Kevin Cedar> They need to be more concerned about quality than if it is "sustainable ". Like beef is not sustainable?
06:38:52 <Kent> Off to Wonderland. TTFN y'all
06:39:09 <Kevin Cedar> Be safe!
06:39:24 <Betty> have fun, Kent. Wave to us
06:39:43 <Kevin Cedar> Be sure to take pictures of Giant for Dave.
06:44:19 <Kevin Cedar> Take a 55 gallon drum of mosquito repellent.
06:44:33 <Betty> Castle
06:45:11 <Graham> i have not been completing the surveys much, too many of them
06:46:06 <Betty> weird. the waste collecting guy sent away the man with the german shepards, but all other dogs on BW can stay. and I doubt all of them are service dogs
06:46:15 <Graham> i see Udo is posting at Grand
06:46:33 <Kevin Cedar> Are you back home Graham?
06:47:00 <Graham> go home tomorrow. how was your trip?
06:47:42 <Kevin Cedar> Maybe they are dogs that identify as tourists.
06:48:47 <Kevin Cedar> It was great. Got most of what I wanted to do. My brother took over 1300 pictures in 5 days.
06:53:59 <Kevin Cedar> The crowds were terrible but the mosquitoes out numbered them by 10,000 to 1.
06:54:16 <Graham> and you saw Aurum, nice
06:56:11 <Graham> nic of
07:04:26 <Kevin Cedar> I was able to get two Aurums but my brother didn't get one. He did get 3 Depressions though.
07:27:37 <Dave from OF> I hope I remember how to drive. I haven’t been in my car since Monday
07:28:03 <Betty> haha
07:28:13 <Betty> when do you leave?
07:28:43 <Kevin Cedar> Will it start?
07:28:56 <Dave from OF> Riverside 928ns
07:29:37 <Dave from OF> Sitting at grand. Leaving after that
07:29:52 <Betty> my car always stands for 7 days when we are skiing in Switzerland
07:29:56 <Graham> hi Dave .... you will have forgotten the route home since you have been there so long. stopping to cuss at Steamboat on your way?
07:30:33 <Dave from OF> Already did that on the way in
07:31:04 <Kevin Cedar> Deserves a bit more on the way out.
07:32:32 <Graham> maybe it will reactivate tomorrow just to torment you
07:32:52 <Graham> did you go and look at it at all Kevin?
07:33:18 <Kevin Cedar> Nope.
07:34:16 <Dave from OF> Waves
07:34:36 <Betty> waves at Grand!
07:34:36 <Kevin Cedar> I did go by Giant.
07:34:58 <Graham> at least you had time to watch something else Dave
07:35:43 <Betty> woot
07:35:44 <Kevin Cedar> Even Artemesia tormented him.
07:36:02 <Graham> well thats a nasty geyser most of the time
07:36:26 <Graham> nw watch Grand have a 3b for his sendoff
07:46:37 <Graham> or maybe a nice long 1b?
07:47:23 <Kevin Cedar> The next one will be a 3b
07:48:10 <Graham> haha ... thats nasty Kevin ..... what did Dave do to you to deserve that?
07:48:53 <Kevin Cedar> Just his luck lately
08:25:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
08:29:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
08:30:26 <ynpvisitor999®> kind-of how Bee started this morning
08:30:51 <Betty> nice buildup
08:32:40 <ynpvisitor999®> tall spikes there
08:36:37 <ynpvisitor999®> 6½m initial
08:39:48 <Betty> at least it did not have to share it with OF
08:40:17 <Betty> the attention I meant
08:45:56 <Betty> LC
09:16:56 <ynpvisitor999®> SC above cone
09:42:22 <ynpvisitor74> lion
10:35:03 <Betty> is that a doggie to the right behind SC?
11:40:08 <Betty> yay, Daisy
12:56:13 <Betty> SC
13:13:28 <Betty> OF
13:29:50 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
13:37:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:45:17 <Steph> 000
13:48:13 <Steph> Grand is just spectacular!
13:49:00 <Steph> YES!
13:49:14 <ynpvisitor81> encore time
15:20:47 <Eric> lion
15:22:57 <Eric> Nice...tara caught domme ini too
15:23:00 <Eric> dome
15:36:18 <ynpvisitor110> F&M reported on GT. I wonder if the steam cloud ever made it into view.
15:38:11 <ynpvisitor57> it did just at the start but there was so little to see I didn't say anything
15:40:04 <ynpvisitor110> Makes sense. F&M can really hide on a windy afternoon.
16:34:02 <ynpvisitor31> lion ie
16:34:03 <Kevin L™> Lion
16:34:21 <Graham> lion
16:56:04 <Graham> nice to see F&M provided some entertainment but it sounds like not many people were around for it. Thank you Dave for letting it erupt
17:00:34 <Graham> and Dave isnt even here to enjoy it on the cam
17:01:53 <ynpvisitor110> Any predictions for when Dave will let Giant erupt?
17:08:59 <Graham> i heard it was predicted yesterday
17:10:10 <Graham> before he left ... but now maybe this evening? nice weather for it if people haven't scattered after F&M
17:12:24 <Kevin L™> They are at Giant
17:12:28 <Graham> Giant just passed its last nterval
17:13:12 <Graham> i bet there are quite a few people in the park now with it being Canada Day
17:13:49 <Kevin L™> Looking for baby bison?
17:14:45 <Michael> My Giant-paranoia has kicked in. I've been convinced for two days that the next hot period is the one it will erupt on.
17:16:46 <Michael> Probably a good thing I'm not in the park getting sleep-deprived and stir-crazy in the cage.
17:25:29 <ynpvisitor31> SC ie
17:27:05 <ynpvisitor57> Poor Dome -- Split Cone gets called but not Dome. It must feel unloved :(
17:27:51 <Graham> its odd with Giant having such long ht periods but I think when it erupts its on a shorter one that develops quicker...we will see
17:28:12 <ynpvisitor31> :daisy:
17:28:13 <Graham> lots of Cav actvity without eruptions is unusual I think
17:28:58 <Graham> daisy
17:29:33 <Michael> I've never heard of Cave erupting with good-not-stunning hot periods before.
17:30:09 <Graham> we need to recalibrate
17:30:45 <Michael> There might not be any geysers left where my calibration is on point.
17:31:56 <Graham> you can still love OF
17:32:14 <Graham> and Riverside (unless it does a 5h interval)
17:33:51 <Michael> Those are pretty reliable. Maybe Great Fountain too.
17:33:53 <Graham> theres always BH and GF, they are doing fine this summer
17:34:20 <Graham> ar you waiting for Steamboat to reactivate before you go and visit?
17:34:45 <ynpvisitor114> Time for BH.
17:35:25 <Kevin L™> Good Bee burp
17:36:21 <Graham> are you home now Kevin?
17:36:32 <Kevin L™> Yes I am
17:38:42 <Michael> Hard to say when I'll get around to visiting again. I hate trip-planning, but I can't get to the Park without a whole lot of it.
17:39:00 <Graham> glad you had a good trip and are now back in the warmth again
17:39:07 <ynpvisitor31> lion
17:39:07 <Graham> dome
17:39:26 <ynpvisitor114> Are the chickens doen yet?
17:39:30 <ynpvisitor114> done
17:39:44 <Kevin L™> They looked toasty
17:40:19 <Graham> lion
17:40:20 <ynpvisitor114> Least you will not have to hard boil any of the eggs
17:41:10 <Kevin L™> I am looking forward to the bed tonight
17:42:13 <ynpvisitor114> I thought you would be up all night running the trains.
17:42:18 <Kevin L™> And I won't miss the b-17 mosquitoes
17:42:54 <ynpvisitor114> I did not know you were in Alaska!
17:43:36 <Graham> yeah they like to be out ths time of year. Set is nicer since the frosts have grounded them
17:44:31 <Kevin L™> They didn't really nail me too bad but I think is was because they were all attacking my wife. I think they liked her sunblock better than mine.
17:56:37 <Michael> F&M details posted. It doesn't sound to me like there was an event cycle.
17:56:59 <Graham> Bill refers to a pause
17:57:50 <Graham> dome
17:57:59 <Michael> Yes, but the described activity just sounds like the down-time between cycles.
17:58:21 <Michael> OF
18:01:07 <Michael> At any rate, I get the feeling this eruption would have caught me mostly by surprise.
18:01:43 <Graham> the fact that the vents started at the same time wold have discouraged me
18:02:50 <Graham> but if it had paused and MV was steaming i would have stayed
18:16:41 <Graham> dome
18:21:15 <ynpvisitor35> I am going to order T. Scott Bryans book. Does it make a difference if I order from Amazon or elsewhere? Does he make more from another site?
18:22:25 <Kevin L™> I don't think he makes any more. I think he gets a percentage from a distributor.
18:25:21 <Kevin L™> BTW I know GOSA used to sell it.
18:29:45 <ynpvisitor114> Nice LC
18:37:12 <ynpvisitor114> LAte lion
18:46:12 <ynpvisitor53> First day with no note about Steamboat
18:46:38 <Kevin L™> Dave sank it.
18:47:21 <ynpvisitor114> Stream and BH hates me. Enjoy
18:47:48 <ynpvisitor53> I don’t think he even went there except for ten minutes on his way in.
18:47:54 <Kevin L™> I can relate. Rexburg hated BH. Night.
18:48:16 <Michael> G'night 114.
18:49:22 <ynpvisitor53> BH could be awhile.
18:50:26 <Michael> I must have thought too hard about flying in to catch Steamboat last month. (would have been there June 17-20 and maybe missed Giant for good measure)
19:24:25 <lori> just steam at BHI?
19:24:46 <Michael> That's got to be an eruption.
19:25:00 <Kevin L™> Looks like it
19:25:09 <Michael> Three cheers for Beehive before dark!
19:25:11 <lori> I have a tiny screen, wasn't sure enough to call anything
19:26:34 <Kevin L™> This is nice
19:28:54 <lori> I don't get cotices- soes someone send them out for BHI?
19:29:09 <lori> notices, does. good grief.
19:30:27 <Michael> The chat page has this link for the text alert list:
19:31:29 <lori> ok, thanks.
19:36:46 <lori> BH?
19:36:51 <lori> !
19:36:55 <Michael> Yes. We have liftoff.
19:39:54 <Kevin L™> Is that Kitt getting her shower?
19:40:27 <Michael> OF's turn
19:43:29 <lori> well, that was fun! push the button for Grand before I hit the hay :D
19:46:14 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
19:49:39 <lori> I'll take Daisy, Riverside and Castle as well....
19:50:06 <Kevin L™> Shouldn't you be hitting the corn?
19:50:09 <lori> wait- Riverside will be too late for me...
19:51:41 <lori> well, there is freshly baled hay, but I would most likely roll off the top of the round bale, lol
19:52:32 <lori> maybe I should stick with sawing logs.
20:00:28 <Kevin L™>
20:01:23 <Kevin L™> May work on corn too
20:02:27 <lori> that's what it will sound like here
20:02:46 <Kevin L™> Me too
20:02:53 <lori> and it is faster with a combine for the corn ;)
20:04:00 <lori> need to loose a few pounds before our trip, or I will be calling in the bears!
20:04:40 <lori> geyser time
20:04:42 <Kevin L™> Got a Daisy
20:05:05 <lori> Grand will fit in the same screen, go ahead and start it!
20:05:32 <Kevin L™> I think Grand gets the white flag from me.
20:08:02 <lori> green!
20:08:53 <lori> I don't want to wait anopther lap!
20:09:32 <Kevin L™> Checkered?
20:09:45 <Kevin L™> Night
20:09:57 <lori> green white checkered will be fine, lol
20:10:06 <lori> night
20:30:20 <Michael> Grand
20:35:36 <Michael> Castle
20:35:54 <lori> thanks :D
20:43:58 <Michael> Time for me to sign off. If anyone is out at Giant tonight, I hope it does whatever it's going to do soon.
