22:43:34 <ynpvisitor36> Steam in grotto area or possibly Riverside
02:30:21 <ynpvisitor70> Steamboat seismo is still clean
02:53:35 <ynpvisitor50> Keep it that way! Just leaving Livingston. Less than 2 hours to go
02:54:09 <ynpvisitor70> Have a great day Dave!
03:26:37 <ynpvisitor999®> morning everyone
03:27:04 <ynpvisitor70> Hi DG
03:54:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep looks steamy
04:05:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
04:08:32 <ynpvisitor70> Norris seism still clear
04:09:11 <ynpvisitor70> seismo*
04:21:27 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a Castle major
04:26:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning .... its in its sweet spt from the pre-disturbance pattern....wonder if its improved?
04:27:00 <ynpvisitor70> Dave should be very near to Steamboat now
04:27:19 <ynpvisitor70> Hi Graham
04:27:27 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Graham
04:27:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> when is Dave arriving? He may be there before the erotion ... question is whether it goes before he has to leave
04:28:48 <ynpvisitor70> He left livingston at 0453, probably parking his car right now
04:34:39 <ynpvisitor999®> based on notes on SB yesterday, it seems SB has strong minors every 3-4 hours. If 1920 was such a phase, extrapolating would give the next phase @ ~2250±30m, the next one @ ~0250±1h, the one thereafter should be occurring around this time-ish (or might be done already or is yet to begin)
04:35:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> depends how good Steamboats clock is
04:36:04 <ynpvisitor999®> that's very true
04:37:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> I blieve it was watched all night so we may hear when the good surges were and the daylight observers will e there now
04:39:27 <ynpvisitor70> SC ie
04:40:54 <ynpvisitor70> Lion is done or missed in the fog
04:41:48 <ynpvisitor999®> it seemed to have a good attempt a few minutes past 0600, but nothing worth noting thereafter
04:48:29 <ynpvisitor38> It takes more than 2 hours from Billings to Norris
04:49:07 <ynpvisitor70> He was in Livingston at 0453
04:49:23 <ynpvisitor38> He has to wait for the road to open, right?, and then go through
04:49:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> he left Livingston at 5
04:50:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> he left Livingston at 5
04:50:07 <ynpvisitor38> Oh, that is different then. Doesn’t the road close at night?
04:50:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> so i would thinkhe is at Norris now ...that Blip on the seismo was his arrival :)
04:50:56 <ynpvisitor70> Riverside
04:51:16 <ynpvisitor38> How does he get there before the road opens?
04:51:28 <ynpvisitor70> That was where he slamed his car door
04:51:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe he drove the fish truck to make it rumble that much
04:52:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> dep
04:52:26 <ynpvisitor38> So he’d be in line at construction
04:52:47 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning everyone
04:52:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> too early for construction
04:53:07 <ynpvisitor14> Morning CC
04:53:16 <ynpvisitor38> The road is closed in the evening
04:53:26 <ynpvisitor70> Hi CC, is everything going well?
04:53:52 <ynpvisitor14> Fog in the Hayden
04:53:55 <ynpvisitorCC> Yes, surgery on hubby went well
04:53:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah ok
04:54:06 <ynpvisitor70> Great!
04:54:24 <ynpvisitorCC> thanks for asking and keeping an eye on cam for me
04:54:37 <ynpvisitor70> yw
04:55:41 <ynpvisitor38> Road is closed until 7 so Dave is waiting patiently at this moment
04:55:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> so road opens at 0700
04:55:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> soon
04:55:56 <ynpvisitor38> Yes
04:56:19 <ynpvisitor38> Takes 30 minutes to drive through
04:56:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> then its not far
04:56:50 <ynpvisitor38> MA might be in same line
04:57:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> true
04:57:40 <ynpvisitor38> Saturday night there is no closure so Becca will not have to wait
04:57:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> then the race is on
04:57:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> if she comes at all
04:58:04 <ynpvisitorCC> I thought the road was open on weekends
04:58:10 <ynpvisitor70> at 0651 the seismo is still clear
04:58:21 <ynpvisitor38> She’ll come. It’s not going today
04:58:24 <ynpvisitorCC> Daisy
04:59:03 <ynpvisitor38> Road closed every night except Saturday night CC
04:59:14 <ynpvisitorCC> oh thanks
05:00:06 <ynpvisitor38> The seismo blip was probably gazers arriving
05:02:05 <ynpvisitor14> Daisy 0658 ie wc
05:02:19 <ynpvisitor14> Never mind
05:02:29 <ynpvisitor70> 0657 start
05:03:05 <ynpvisitor14> GT predictions are a good thing
05:11:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> nce someone got the full moon GF
05:13:13 <ynpvisitor14> When I checked the cam last night it was less than Wow. Night before was much better. I hope it cleared
05:13:47 <ynpvisitor70> I got on one of those a few years ago.
05:17:51 <ynpvisitor14> I have always thought the sound at night was the best part.
05:18:58 <ynpvisitor70> The period of time from dark until the camera realizes it's dark and removes the IR filter is always less than WOW
05:21:46 <ynpvisitor14> I may have hit a bad time then. Image way yucky gray.
05:25:54 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
05:27:03 <ynpvisitor70> Yes 2145 to about 2300 ugly!
05:29:43 <ynpvisitor70> long
05:37:01 <ynpvisitor70> gtg ciao
05:37:19 <ynpvisitorCC> bye
05:52:39 <ynpvisitor38> Mike K not at Norris...
05:54:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe he has to work at OF today?
05:54:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> its a little early for Giant watch
05:58:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dave should be there now
06:03:37 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
06:07:56 <Kevin L™> HI
06:31:18 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
06:54:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie
07:00:49 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
07:06:18 <Kevin L™> Big steam in Giant area
07:06:25 <ynpvisitor999®> probably Rocket
07:08:11 <ynpvisitor999®> 0905 Rocket major per minafuku
07:09:09 <Kevin L™> Yep. Was hoping it wasn't Giant since most gazers are up north
07:10:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I wouldn't expect Giant until tomorrow
07:17:51 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP Mastiff ¾ full + spitting SW vents 0907
07:18:32 <ynpvisitor999®> there was a small one before 0730 too
07:18:39 <ynpvisitor999®> per Mike Keller
07:19:20 <ynpvisitor2> 0907 not a HP. no Feather. no HP
07:32:26 <ynpvisitor30> daisy
08:11:51 <ynpvisitor14> GRAND
08:12:50 <ynpvisitor14> We may have to enter this one?
09:51:11 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:51:31 <Betty> evening DG
09:51:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee
09:51:48 <ynpvisitor999®> .
09:51:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
09:51:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
09:51:50 <ynpvisitor999®> .
09:51:51 <ynpvisitor999®> .
09:52:02 <Betty> wooooooooooo
09:52:30 <Betty> again a nice timing for me to sneak in
09:52:46 <ynpvisitor51> it was waiting for you
09:53:04 <ynpvisitor999®> don't know if it was preceded by Indy
10:02:51 <Kevin L™> Missed it by that much.
10:03:28 <Betty> bummer
10:03:34 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:03:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
10:03:51 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:03:52 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:03:53 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:04:02 <Betty> look, kevin
10:04:22 <Betty> DG brought you Aurum
10:04:37 <Betty> great catch DG
10:04:46 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
10:05:05 <Kevin L™> That was fun!
10:05:28 <Betty> yup, a good one, even with no closeup
10:05:54 <ynpvisitor999®> definitely one of the longer Aurums
10:10:00 <Betty> hope Dave gets his Steamboat today
10:10:26 <Kevin L™> No SB info so far.
10:54:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow Aurum erupted
10:54:45 <Kevin L™> Good one too
10:55:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> is Steamboat waiting for Becca?
10:57:32 <Betty> didn´t Dave go alone this time?
10:58:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, Becca is coming tomorrow
10:58:40 <Kent> Kevin, When the cam driver does a capture is the file saved on his/her computer or the NPS one? Speaking of Aurum.
10:58:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> unless something happens, like an eruption
10:59:03 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
11:03:43 <ynpvisitor999®> it almost seems SC wants to go bigger
11:04:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> 100' maybe?
11:05:37 <ynpvisitor...> Ghost of Christmas past?
11:06:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I definitely think SC has had taller eruptions in the past, seen it's large cone
11:07:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I wouldn't necessarily say OF-sized eruptions, though
11:08:15 <ynpvisitor...> Too bad we can't get a really good look at the underground plumbing.
11:08:46 <Betty> time to get ready for the festival, bbl
11:08:58 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun, Betty
11:09:26 <ynpvisitor999®> as for underground plumbing, I don't think a small camera would fit in its vent
11:10:33 <ynpvisitor...> We need a CT scan with contrast :)
11:14:42 <ynpvisitor999®> what would really help, is colored images of ground-penetrating radar
11:32:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> W gate completely empty
11:52:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> long wait for Rocket. I see MK is still down there
12:06:42 <Kevin L™> They had a DC-3 in camo paint for the flyover in the football game. Cool airplane.
12:09:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> fotball season already?
12:10:36 <ynpvisitor30> lion
12:11:57 <Kevin L™> Close enough
12:12:14 <Kevin L™> They have been playing for a month now.
12:12:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC
12:13:07 <Kevin L™> My team (Stampeders) are 5-0 right now.
12:14:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice
12:14:53 <Kevin L™> This is a nice Lion. Great looking even with the wind.
12:15:15 <Kevin L™> Not too far from hockey season either!
12:15:56 <Kevin L™> Still a lot of Black Knights stuff around here.
12:26:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like Micah drove back from Norris
12:26:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> posted Flood and Ftn
12:28:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> waiting for the steamboat report...
12:33:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> Daisy
12:41:19 <ynpvisitor16> Seismo says: No Steamboat yet
13:37:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
13:37:51 <ynpvisitor51> Lion
13:52:26 <ynpvisitor118> Micah's back in UGB yet no SB note yet
13:53:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think he is busy or sleeping
13:54:06 <ynpvisitor118> seismo line just got thicker
13:54:42 <ynpvisitor118> not thick enough I see...
13:54:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> not enough for steamboat
13:54:48 <ynpvisitor999®> that's not a Steamboat signature
13:54:56 <ynpvisitor118> agreed
13:55:13 <ynpvisitor999®> YNR doesn't show it either (and usually it does, if it's not showing an error trace)
13:55:18 <ynpvisitor118> hk stayed in UGB too
14:01:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> HK is rationing his steamboat time and spreading around with Giant and Grand
14:02:18 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching SC and the seismos
14:06:36 <ynpvisitor118> too bad hk's app does not post Turbans
14:06:45 <ynpvisitor118> is that haze in the basin?
14:07:03 <ynpvisitor118> there is Grand
14:07:36 <ynpvisitor118> hk might not even be at Grand with Giant Hot Period
14:11:44 <ynpvisitor118> sure looks hazy yet OF static does not, only cloudy
14:16:25 <ynpvisitor118> hopefully a 2nd coming...
14:16:57 <ynpvisitor118> yeah
14:16:57 <ynpvisitor16> boom
14:17:45 <ynpvisitor16> now a third?
14:17:51 <ynpvisitor118> a 3rd would be nice
14:18:37 <ynpvisitor118> is it raining?
14:18:42 <ynpvisitor16> yep
14:19:05 <ynpvisitor118> so not haze, rain.
14:19:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> both smoke and rain
14:21:18 <ynpvisitor118> UGB static and West Gate do not look smoky
14:22:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was ssmoky before it started raining
14:22:37 <ynpvisitor118> West Gate looks hazy now
14:22:58 <ynpvisitor118> hopefully not raining at SB
14:55:39 <ynpvisitor30> kion
15:02:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> headed out, have fun
15:02:40 <ynpvisitor16> you also
16:19:47 <Betty> still no Giant or Steamboat?
16:20:17 <ynpvisitor16> no not yet
16:21:20 <ynpvisitor16> Seismo is still normal at Norris
16:21:27 <Betty> hope they do not disappear in the dark, though a full moon Steamboat could be nice
16:22:08 <Betty> Rocket? Mastiff? Grotto
16:22:10 <Betty> ?
16:23:49 <ynpvisitor16> There were a few gazers at Giant do not know if they are looking elseware
16:24:28 <ynpvisitor2> 1 weak hp, 2 rockets, a long grotto. but why are we expecting Giant in a 4 day interval? hasnt done anything close to that since 07. even if energy may be shifting.
16:26:06 <ynpvisitor16> Oblong area steam slight
16:26:52 <ynpvisitor16> I think we have an Oblong
16:27:47 <Betty> does not look like Oblong to me
16:29:22 <ynpvisitor16> The one between grand and grotto
16:29:23 <ynpvisitor2> F&M are kinda due any time now. especially with no observers
16:32:08 <ynpvisitor2> next Grotto should happen soon too
16:49:59 <ynpvisitor2> is that Grotto?
16:50:49 <ynpvisitor16> that is the area but there are others in same
16:50:50 <Betty> maybe it is
16:56:54 <ynpvisitor38> Too many clouds about for much of a moon tonight at SB
17:10:14 <Kevin L™> Dave broke the moon.
17:29:39 <ynpvisitor26> Elton broke the moon
17:29:47 <ynpvisitor16> RIVERSIDE
17:31:45 <ynpvisitor26> I like pit come better
17:31:51 <ynpvisitor26> spit
17:31:56 <ynpvisitor26> cone
17:33:10 <Kevin L™> It tries hard.
17:33:37 <ynpvisitor118> Betty, you posted Split Cone with an in basin time
17:33:41 <ynpvisitor30> Birds seem to like sc, too.
17:34:05 <Kevin L™> I wish we get some geese back.
17:34:14 <Betty> oops
17:34:23 <Betty> changed it
17:36:17 <ynpvisitor118> when did Castle start?
17:36:32 <ynpvisitor16> 1935
17:36:37 <ynpvisitor118> ty
17:37:22 <ynpvisitor26> Spit cone, the little geyser that could.
17:37:47 <ynpvisitor16> :)
17:37:52 <ynpvisitor118> it's split cone
17:38:04 <ynpvisitor118> poor thing needs some cred
17:38:16 <Betty> I like it
17:38:17 <ynpvisitor26> What about Faisy?
17:38:29 <ynpvisitor118> not a fan of that either
17:38:45 <ynpvisitor118> poor geysers
17:40:30 <ynpvisitor26> Wixen?
17:41:35 <ynpvisitor26> Too bad the clouds are blocking the sun on Castle. I like eruptions this time of night.
17:42:00 <ynpvisitor16> Norris seismo is stlll quiet
17:42:38 <ynpvisitor26> Not good wind for the benches.
17:43:42 <Betty> are these shopping bags on the bench?
17:44:25 <Kevin L™> Looks smoky too.
17:45:25 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
17:45:28 <ynpvisitor26> Unattended packages. In some places they would blow them up.
17:45:44 <Kevin L™> Night Betty
17:50:50 <ynpvisitor26> Castle is not a very good geyser, it lasts longer then peoples attention span.
17:53:14 <ynpvisitor26> speeking of Faisy
17:57:59 <Kevin L™> DDepression
17:58:35 <ynpvisitor26> They have pills for that.
17:59:03 <ynpvisitor26> It was fun, maybe try for a 12 hour bh if I can see.
18:02:29 <ynpvisitor16> Dave better pull out some beef jerky and a beer sit back and relax for a while
18:03:35 <ynpvisitor38> Maybe Becca will be the lucky charm
18:03:58 <ynpvisitor38> I wonder if Dave will stay the night?
18:05:39 <ynpvisitor16> Guys his age can't take too many of those overnight benches anymore
18:11:25 <Kevin L™> I think he has a campsite.
20:10:57 <Kevin L™> Looks like Grand is ie
20:20:58 <Dave from Gardi> Good evening
20:21:22 <Kevin L™> Gard?
20:21:38 <Dave from Gardi> Gardiner
20:21:57 <Dave from Gardi> Actually found a room
20:21:57 <Kevin L™> Campground full?
20:22:40 <Kevin L™> How did it look?
20:22:45 <Dave from Gardi> Bruce’s site was too small
20:23:49 <Dave from Gardi> Things improved as the day went along. Tomorrow is the day unless it goes overnight
20:26:00 <Kevin L™> I guess you have to wait for the road to open too. :P
20:26:53 <Dave from Gardi> It doesn’t close on weekend
20:27:10 <Kevin L™> That is a plus
20:27:24 <Dave from Gardi> And no traffic early
20:27:35 <Kevin L™> How bad are the room rates there?
20:28:18 <Dave from Gardi> 110
20:28:38 <Dave from Gardi> Room with3 beds!
20:28:52 <Kevin L™> Much better than West. I assume that includes a bath and wifi.
20:29:37 <Dave from Gardi> Yep and a kitchen
20:29:51 <Kevin L™> Wow!
20:30:04 <Kevin L™> Looks like Daisy ie
20:32:06 <Dave from Gardi> Time for bed. Hoping for a quiet seismo tonight
20:32:31 <Kevin L™> Night and good luck. Becca coming tomorrow?
20:33:10 <Dave from Gardi> No she has to work
