03:32:02 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
03:42:58 <Joe´> Hi DG
03:43:09 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Joe
03:54:15 <Joe´> DG, I do not know if you saw this yesterday, what I saw at Steamboat on 07/09 https://youtu.be/EFis--dv4Mc
03:54:56 <Joe´> ~10am
03:55:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I did see that one
03:55:37 <ynpvisitor999®> but it's always nice to see it again
04:01:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep?
04:03:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I really can't tell, but steam above it and steamy runoff would suggest it went
04:15:34 <Joe´> Today is Oh thank heaven for 7-11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9ygDjeT_7o :)
04:16:19 <ynpvisitor999®> ...
04:16:36 <ynpvisitor999®> at least it woke me up, felt a bit sleepy
04:23:58 <ynpvisitor999®> That looks more like Depression there
04:25:20 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder what Dep did @ 0601. Maybe overflow followed by a (partial) drain?
05:06:32 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:07:00 <Dave from B™> Hi DG
05:31:46 <ynpvisitor999®> tall OF
05:37:50 <Joe´> camera tree https://imgur.com/a/u4Hmxsi always vigilant
05:54:18 <ynpvisitor9> Aurum?
05:55:40 <ynpvisitor9> Looks like Giantess boil
05:55:43 <Joe´> Daisy
05:56:53 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
05:59:46 <Bill> Morning
06:00:00 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
06:00:08 <ynpvisitor999®> and Mike
06:00:37 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill, Joe
06:01:00 <Joe´> HI Dave & Bill
06:22:15 <Jimbo Cerium> Hi all
06:22:33 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
06:22:45 <Mike J> I've got to get my glasses fixed. I thought it said Jimbo Cranium
06:27:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
06:30:27 <Kevin L™> hi
06:32:09 <sparekitty> good morning!
06:32:37 <Kevin L™> Morning.
06:34:00 <ynpvisitor999®> morning sparekitty
06:52:11 <Kevin L™> Lion looking happy
06:52:23 <Kevin L™> Grand
06:52:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
06:53:04 <Kevin L™> Another all at once day
06:53:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle could be soon too
07:02:38 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd from Grand?
07:02:56 <Kevin L™> Nice tall column
07:02:59 <Joe´> yes
07:03:26 <Jimbo Cerium> Just saw it with the lag, definite 2nd
07:10:07 <Joe´> whoppe should make Lion an ini
07:48:26 <Rice> Any Bets on what day the final snow leave Washburn Cam? I igve it about 1 week.
07:52:08 <Jake> big Beehive crowd
07:52:15 <Jake> they must not know that Aurum is DUE
07:52:37 <Dave from B™> Does anyone know why Washburn trail closes at midnight tonight?
07:52:54 <Jake> keeping people away from the tower upgrades
07:54:03 <Dave from B™> So, this will improve cell service in the park?
07:54:53 <Jake> that's what I gathered
07:55:22 <Jake> if so, I wonder if it will bring Norris into service more often
07:55:38 <Rice> I think they are going trail work also
07:55:43 <Dave from B™> That would sure be nice
07:55:54 <Jake> I don't know which tower devices connect to during low visitation periods at Norris
07:56:15 <Jake> the one that services Mammoth or Canyon or West.....
08:26:55 <Dave from B™> Dasiy ie
08:29:47 <Rice> We got an Indy
08:30:05 <Rice> let the drooling begin
08:30:06 <ynpvisitor999®> yay
08:30:36 <Craig> Go Bee!
08:30:43 <Kevin L™> :)
08:38:13 <Dave from B™> Pfew...just in time
08:39:18 <Jimbo Cerium> Good visibility of the water
08:39:36 <ynpvisitor43> Quite the nice OF
08:41:22 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie/ns
08:42:13 <ynpvisitor43> SteveO leaves tomorrow
08:42:52 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
08:46:24 <Kevin L™> Somebody is getting wet.
08:49:35 <Dave from B™> Hopefully Becca is seeing some wildlife today...She's doing the Lake, Canyon, Tower thing today
08:49:41 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a nice Bee
08:49:59 <Kevin L™> She should have stayed the morning.
08:52:02 <Dave from B™> Her trip was a parkwide trip; not a gazing one
08:57:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Sprinkler ie
09:13:10 <ynpvisitor999®> 0852 Lion is now marked as initial
09:19:06 <ynpvisitor43> No Steamboat report
09:19:49 <ynpvisitor999®> probably still out of reach of cellphone signal or maybe they'll enter it later today
09:20:36 <ynpvisitor999®> or not much has changed since yesterday (though I'd expect Cistern to be either fully drained or refilling by now)
09:21:07 <Kevin L™> Becca is using their bandwidth to talk to Dave
09:21:40 <ynpvisitor999®> that's another possibility :)
09:23:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
09:27:44 <ynpvisitor999®> that was one good Lion
09:28:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it'll continue its series
10:08:35 <ynpvisitor999®> notes from SB and co are in
10:10:02 <Jimbo Cerium> wow, just checked World Cup semifinal score
10:11:07 <ynpvisitor999®> 1-0 already for England :)
10:11:13 <Dave from B™> That was an early goal
10:13:07 <ynpvisitor4> Don't know if this has been discussed here. Could be interesting http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2018/07/09/national-geographic-announces-tv-journalist-josh-elliott-as-host-of-the-summers-biggest-live-event-yellowstone-live-454513/20180709ngc01/
10:15:37 <Dave from B™> Sounds fun. Thanks 4
10:18:45 <Dave from B™> Eric must be on vacation...haven't seen him for awhile
10:22:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern is down ~3 feet and boiling with yellow water
10:24:36 <ynpvisitor999®> SB is very quiet and gently steaming with occasional weak pushes of steam, but no water. Both runoff channels dry
10:25:37 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
10:25:52 <Dave from B™> Hi, ge
10:26:01 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon ge
10:26:19 <ge> Hello to all
10:33:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:34:39 <ynpvisitor999®> minor so far
10:34:50 <ynpvisitor999®> though it was a promising start
10:34:57 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe restart soon?
10:35:14 <ynpvisitor999®> yep
10:59:50 <Dave from B™> Dizzy Daisy ie
11:12:02 <Kevin L™> Sounds like Lion is getting updates.
11:30:30 <Betty> hello all
11:30:41 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
11:30:43 <Kevin L™> hi
11:31:01 <Betty> hi DG and Kevin
11:41:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
11:42:52 <ynpvisitor999®> minor so far
11:43:23 <ynpvisitor999®> and restart
11:48:35 <Betty> OF
11:51:25 <ynpvisitor999®> and extra time
12:37:52 <Betty> wow, did not really expect that.
12:38:03 <ynpvisitor999®> me neither
12:39:19 <Betty> they both were favourites of mine, but I´d had all my bets on England
12:41:03 <ynpvisitor43> Croatia guys look happy
12:41:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Guess I'll be rooting for Croatia in the final and stay neutral in the consolation match
12:41:39 <ynpvisitor43> Must be such a bummer to play for 3rd place
12:43:15 <ynpvisitor43> Did you bet money Betty?
12:43:27 <Betty> no
12:43:55 <ynpvisitor43> That’s good
12:44:02 <Betty> :-)
12:44:29 <Jimbo Cerium> France will be strongly favored in the final
12:44:44 <ynpvisitor43> Graham won’t be happy
12:44:56 <Betty> I gave up playing with money on my 2nd trip to Vegas ;-)
12:45:29 <ynpvisitor43> Croatia may surprise France
12:45:45 <Betty> I hopee they will do
12:49:42 <ynpvisitor999®> back to watching geysers
12:53:38 <Betty> Lion
12:55:39 <ynpvisitor999®> no pause? boo
13:05:27 <Jake> GT got over 1k visitors from this article from an Eastern Idaho TV station: https://www.localnews8.com/news/kifi-top-story/steamboat-geyser-erupts-eleventh-time-in-2018/764710399
13:06:11 <Jake> and if you didn't think that geysers can have strong convictions: "USGS said the geyser has decided to follow a semi-regular pattern of erupting"
13:06:44 <ynpvisitor49> Ha
13:07:34 <Betty> Grand
13:07:34 <Jake> Grand ns
13:08:03 <ynpvisitor86> Does semi-regular mean anything?
13:08:40 <Jake> half way to regular
13:08:51 <ynpvisitor86> :)
13:11:23 <Betty> haha
13:11:36 <Dave from B™> or halfway to dormancy?
13:11:47 <Dave from B™> or irregularity?
13:12:12 <Jake> you're getting them confused. that would be semi-irregular
13:13:37 <ynpvisitor86> How about recently more frequent
13:13:39 <Dave from B™> Being the businessman I am...I'm only thinking about how you can actually make some money with increased GT usage
13:15:11 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
13:16:18 <Jimbo Cerium> Lower activity but no pause
13:18:44 <Jimbo Cerium> Long 1b
13:20:09 <Dave from B™> Jake, did Peru win their last World Cup game?
13:20:37 <Jake> yes, meaningless though it was
13:21:37 <Dave from B™> Thanks. I was in YNP at the time and didn't remeber result. Glad they made it to the WC. It had been awhile
13:22:04 <Dave from B™> I was just thinking in a year, US team will start trying to qualify again
13:22:58 <Betty> time to get some sleep. night all
13:23:02 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 10m59s
13:23:06 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:23:14 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
13:40:16 <ynpvisitor6> Hi guys
13:41:53 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon 6
13:42:21 <ynpvisitor6> Wondering if any of you are the Webcam operator - if so, thanks for the great shots!
13:47:13 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Brew pub is calling my name. Have a great evening everyone!
13:50:22 <ynpvisitor999®> you too, Dave
13:51:02 <Kevin L™> Night Dave
14:04:21 <WHAT HAPPEND?> brew pub sounds good right now
14:04:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Croatia happened
14:05:06 <WHAT HAPPEND?> grrrrr
14:05:15 <WHAT HAPPEND?> hope they beat the froggies
14:05:27 <Kevin L™> Same thing that should have happened to the Caps.
14:05:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Croatia won 2-1 after extra time
14:05:58 <Kevin L™> It was a commie plot
14:06:18 <ynpvisitor999®> England can become 3rd though, so I guess it's something
14:06:22 <WHAT HAPPEND?> all Trumps fault, he went to Belgium and they lost, then to England
14:07:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Croatia did seem to have the overhand after England made a goal in the 6th minute and in general they seemed better organized than England
14:08:19 <WHAT HAPPEND?> i didnt get to watch it ... probably a good thing
14:32:48 <WHAT HAPPEND?> you didnt leave much for us to watch tonight
14:33:19 <Kevin L™> No Aurum so far
14:43:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle seems to be up to something
14:43:52 <WHAT HAPPEND?> probably splashing from time to time
14:45:09 <Kent> Never been on the Roosevelt cookout. Is it worth the effort?
14:45:39 <Kevin L™> Xanterra food? Think about it.
14:45:52 <Kent> :)
14:46:12 <WHAT HAPPEND?> haha ... do they serve alcohol, that would help. never been on it
14:46:49 <Kent> $63 which doesn't include the tax or utility fee.
14:47:03 <Kent> 1646 Fluffy wc my box
14:47:45 <WHAT HAPPEND?> so thats the ride and food ..... i guess not bad for a premium location. i think it gets good reviews
14:48:40 <Kent> I think I am going to go just to say I have done it. There is still space available on the wagon.
14:49:01 <Kevin L™> Let us know.
14:49:11 <WHAT HAPPEND?> have fun. when are you going?
14:49:31 <Kent> August 15th
14:51:04 <WHAT HAPPEND?> i see the DUrango Silverton steam train resumes service tomorrow, yeah
14:54:40 <WHAT HAPPEND?> looks like GT must have been a minute ahead of VEC time ... unlesee they changed the window
15:06:50 <Kevin L™> Nice to see that the D&SNG is back to steam. I was just over watching the train come in on the Cumbres & Toltec.
15:07:33 <WHAT HAPPEND?> and they have 2 beer tasting runs in Sept :)
15:07:48 <WHAT HAPPEND?> maybe that will get kcmule there'
15:08:45 <Kevin L™> My friend runs his train there in August sometimes. Since it is a woodburner they may not let him do it this year.
15:12:36 <WHAT HAPPEND?> bet its complicated to organize that
15:13:58 <Kevin L™> They have to place wood piles along the way and since it is smaller than the normal engines it takes more water stops too.
15:19:11 <WHAT HAPPEND?> have you ever ridden on it?
15:20:04 <Kevin L™> D&SNG or Dan's train?
15:20:05 <WHAT HAPPEND?> another Bulgers Hole eruption
15:20:16 <WHAT HAPPEND?> Dan's
15:20:41 <Kevin L™> Yes, but only on the Museum tracks.
16:12:17 <ynpvisitor...> Castle keeps giving hints but so far no cigar :(
16:13:12 <ynpvisitor999®> There it is
16:13:18 <ynpvisitor999®> at last
16:13:28 <ynpvisitor...> Standing by here
16:13:31 <WHAT HAPPEND?> yep
16:13:47 <Kevin L™> But still no Aurum
16:13:48 <ynpvisitor...> Here
16:16:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
16:19:15 <WHAT HAPPEND?> all erupt while waiting for fluffy
16:19:58 <Kevin L™> And Aurum will erupt when Fluffy steam blocks the view.
16:21:28 <WHAT HAPPEND?> or when cam finally gets to zoom in on Castle
16:24:55 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
16:27:57 <Kevin L™> Castle may be over before OF erupts.
16:43:22 <Kevin L™> Here is a video of Dan's train Graham. You can see me loading wood into the tender at the start of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0AWWpD9zTk
16:49:39 <ynpvisitor...> Beehive 0100 with zero moon. Really going to be a crowd pleaser. I hope it sets us up for tomorrow evening.🤞
16:57:02 <WHAT HAPPEND?> nice video Kevin, bet that keeps him busy
16:59:02 <Kevin L™> He is working on a passenger car for it. Been doing it for 20 years now. He made the flat car you saw including the metal castings on it.
16:59:49 <WHAT HAPPEND?> zero moon and clear sky means lots of stars and the milky way
17:12:01 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day, have a great evening everyone
17:12:20 <WHAT HAPPEND?> goodnight
17:12:43 <Kevin L™> Goede nacht
17:13:36 <ynpvisitor57> depression
17:14:16 <Kevin L™> That is a flat steam cloud
17:16:02 <Kevin L™> Wow
17:16:22 <WHAT HAPPEND?> nice burst
17:17:09 <ynpvisitor58> Major depression, I think they have pills for that.
17:34:26 <WHAT HAPPEND?> i am quitting early as theres nothing much left ... goodnight
17:37:25 <ynpvisitor49> Bison goring is what closed the road
17:54:27 <ynpvisitor...> A lot of people for an 8PM Fluffy
18:43:03 <ynpvisitor42> daisy
