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