23:52:33 <ynpvisitor37> I hope DfB is managing some sleep. Seismo totally flat right now
02:32:05 <ynpvisitor81> Great nights sleep. Be at the ship in 1 hour
03:42:55 <ynpvisitor16> Seismo says: No Steamboat yet.
03:53:42 <ynpvisitor16> Grand
03:54:57 <ynpvisitor16> 7h 46min interval
03:57:47 <ynpvisitor38> Longest in a while
03:59:23 <ynpvisitor38> Hopefully SB today. I imagine the gang there is getting pretty cranky
04:01:06 <ynpvisitor16> last longer was 12 July 0525
04:05:48 <ynpvisitor37> Looks like Grand is still going
04:06:47 <ynpvisitor16> probably a 1b could not see pause
04:07:07 <ynpvisitor37> I agree
04:20:05 <ynpvisitor91> Lion
04:32:56 <ynpvisitor16> looks as if there will be a daytime/dinnertime BH this day.
04:33:44 <ynpvisitor16> DAISY
04:38:26 <ynpvisitor87> Still no Steamboat?
04:39:05 <ynpvisitor16> nope seismo is clean
04:41:36 <ynpvisitor16> time to get out of the tents, brew some coffee, and enjoy another day of sunshine on the benches at SB
04:44:58 <ynpvisitor16> last SB 8d 8h 8 min ago
04:54:00 <ynpvisitor16> OF
04:57:43 <ynpvisitor87> This slow build in activity will be waring people out
05:00:49 <ynpvisitor...> Seismo downright boring
05:02:08 <ynpvisitor...> Hayden and Grand Canyon full of fog again this morning.
05:03:35 <ynpvisitor87> It's now longer than all the pre disturbance intervals. Net shortest is the last one over 14 days. Looks like it wants to go earlier tho, I hope it keeps building rather than reverting to less active
05:41:27 <ynpvisitor10> :lion:
05:41:29 <ynpvisitor91> Lion minor
05:43:35 <ynpvisitor91> now Lion
05:43:51 <ynpvisitor91> or not
05:44:54 <ynpvisitor16> the first roar lasted 20sec the second about the same
05:45:47 <ynpvisitor16> it did have a nice above cone splash
05:48:51 <ynpvisitor16> Riverside
05:51:28 <ynpvisitor50> is that Giant?
05:52:29 <ynpvisitor16> Giant is further left, that is riverside
05:53:14 <ynpvisitor50> see that now
05:54:00 <ynpvisitor16> But it could be F&M also, riverside is usualy a little more right
05:54:52 <ynpvisitor16> I'm going to change my post to F&M
05:55:03 <ynpvisitor50> it does look left of Riverside but
05:55:50 <ynpvisitor50> with very little wind looks more like F^
05:55:50 <ynpvisitor2> prolly F&M no one to check though I imagine
05:56:06 <ynpvisitor50> &M
05:56:55 <ynpvisitor16> I think we will see rside in 20min or so
05:57:25 <ynpvisitor50> no gazers in the basin?
05:57:49 <ynpvisitor16> think most are at SB
05:59:07 <ynpvisitor50> will know pretty soon.
06:00:07 <ynpvisitor16> Too bad GT does not remove prediction when post is removed
06:04:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yeah F&M ties it with Steamboat at 12
06:04:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> Now steamboat needs anothwr
06:05:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> 12 12 9 now with Giant lagging the pack
06:05:32 <ynpvisitor50> I think F&M will win out.
06:05:59 <ynpvisitor16> There is Riside now
06:06:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> Giant has a chance if it gets going frequently but F&M is the best bet
06:07:59 <lc> been some year so far, just hope they can keep going.
06:08:55 <ynpvisitor16> exciting to say the least :)
06:09:17 <lc> wish SB would go today and let the gazers rest a little while.
06:11:27 <ynpvisitor16> Lion is refusing to erupt a second time today
06:11:44 <lc> not much steam from Riverside.
06:12:41 <ynpvisitor16> nope expected more at 43°
06:13:19 <lc> look at the note, no F&M
06:14:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> That's no fun
06:14:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> Did you enjoy steamboat lc?
06:14:57 <lc> I really did
06:15:17 <lc> and I got Giant the day before
06:15:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> Back to 12 11 9
06:15:45 <lc> you can't believe how lucky I feel.
06:15:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bet you were huffing and puffing from Porcelain
06:16:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> Great trip
06:16:16 <lc> for sure
06:16:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> You don't get much warning to get back there, glad you got some
06:17:00 <ynpvisitor16> F&M deleted Riverside posted
06:18:12 <lc> Graham, we also saw Pinwheel. not that great a show but interesting.
06:20:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> That's rare. Were you at SB for the start or still running?
06:20:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> I saw the post times and thought it would have been hard to be there at the start
06:21:01 <lc> Steve and me were about 50 steps from the lower platform when it took off.
06:21:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> Nice, you moved fast
06:22:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> It takes a while to build up too
06:22:17 <lc> we did make pretty good time, ran off from Kitt.
06:23:11 <lc> it was about tree top high when we got in sight.
06:24:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> Awesome. The sounds are amazing
06:24:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> Hope it goes today, Becca should be there now
06:24:51 <lc> I didn't know Becca was going down.
06:25:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> She was working yesterday but due to join Dave at SB today
06:25:48 <lc> I really hope her, Dave and Bruce get it.
06:26:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yeah, Bruce was unlucky before too
06:26:25 <lc> and anyone else that hasn't seen it.
06:26:43 <lc> I wish everybody could see it one time.
06:27:44 <lc> I felt bad for some of the gazers that left before the eruption we saw.
06:29:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> The build up seems a bit different each cycle now
06:29:53 <lc> we would have been in the parking lot when it started if Udo and Jim hadn't stuck around and caught the minors.
06:29:58 <ynpvisitor2> July 6 really had no build up
06:30:27 <lc> a few strong minors.
06:31:23 <ynpvisitor2> but only for an hour or less before the eruption. nothing really from sv prior
06:33:06 <lc> an hour before the eruption nobody thought it was going. really got interesting about 20 minutes before the eruption.
06:33:43 <ynpvisitor2> exactly. no build up. it just went.
06:33:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> Agree 2, there was just the slow buildup in strength that gave some n diction after it got out of its stuck phase
06:34:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> Day by day slow increase in intensity
06:36:46 <ynpvisitor2> 7/6 does not compare to the pre disturbance activity. kinda a fluke.
06:37:06 <ynpvisitor2> also mixed reports on the 7/20 build up.
06:39:08 <ynpvisitor2> different opinions of whether it was granding or not prior to 7/20
06:40:16 <ynpvisitor2> no concerted activity at all on 7/6 or days before until immediately before the eruption
06:47:51 <lc> bbl
06:49:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> The notes show an increase of activity on 2 and 5 July but not like pre disturbance. This might be the new norm
06:51:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> Looks like increase in water volume has been one of the building items
06:52:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> But I am not there :(
06:54:59 <ynpvisitor2> alas, none of us are
06:56:14 <Stephen G.> Yeah, this activity definitely seems to be different from Steamboat. I'm curious to see when it will erupt now. From Tara's post, it sounded like it was trying yesterday afternoon
07:00:59 <Kevin L™> Some interesting patterns on the Norris seismo.
07:42:35 <ynpvisitor68> N gate looks busy, everyone must be headed to Steamboat
07:43:18 <Betty> hi all
07:43:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi betty
07:44:12 <Betty> hi Graham
07:45:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> how is your festival? still going?
07:45:15 <Betty> last day today
07:45:49 <Betty> there was the horse race day today, several races
07:46:36 <Betty> lots of people there, but I did not go
07:47:47 <Betty> I just had a nice beer with Thomas :-)
07:48:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, sounds like it has been a fun week for you
07:49:10 <Betty> fun but exhausting when you are working
07:50:08 <Betty> late to bed and go to work early was easier when I was younger :-p
07:55:35 <Betty> I need a cooldown in the pool, way too hot here. bbl
08:10:07 <Kevin L™> Hii Betty
09:47:57 <Kevin L™> Slime time
09:48:28 <Kevin L™> I could see that coming
10:18:01 <Betty> Grand
10:18:04 <ynpvisitor16> Grand
10:26:53 <Kevin L™> 2b
10:27:04 <Betty> yeah
10:27:11 <Betty> hi Kevin
11:07:17 <ynpvisitor20> Some polishing grit and a buffer needed on the cam.
11:09:47 <ynpvisitor20> OF currently outside both windows
11:11:06 <ynpvisitor118> GT window says 1324
11:11:39 <ynpvisitor118> one late, one early...
11:14:26 <ynpvisitor118> does anyone know when Dave has to leave Norris? Can he stay this evening?
11:14:55 <Betty> don´t know
11:15:25 <Betty> but hope he can stay if SB decides not to go today
11:17:07 <ynpvisitor118> history shows it was very unpredictable after disturbances...
11:18:52 <Betty> OF
11:19:58 <ynpvisitor20> GT won
11:20:34 <ynpvisitor118> yep
11:20:39 <Betty> think VEC had the last one as a short which wasn´t
11:20:57 <ynpvisitor20> What I suspected too
11:35:20 <ynpvisitor118> I hope the web cam can see F & M steam if it goes. Gazers are all away.
11:35:51 <Betty> Linda Strasser was at Grand
11:36:20 <ynpvisitor118> like Stacey the day of the 3 burst one, she was getting a last geyser in before leaving
11:36:56 <ynpvisitor118> there is an RB Whitaker post of Rocket, yet no others so far from him
11:40:32 <ynpvisitor2> hk in the bijou cage
12:05:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini

12:08:30 <Betty> GHP 1359
12:09:13 <ynpvisitor16> will this be a Lion with more in series, or will it be a one off as this recent am?
12:10:01 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't know, but I haven't seen a two-in-a-row initial-only series
12:10:06 <ynpvisitor999®> just yet
12:10:20 <ynpvisitor16> I know the answer, its a geyser!

13:10:33 <ynpvisitor16> Tara's note on SB, sounds like SB may be within 24 hours
13:11:16 <ynpvisitor2> or 5 days
13:12:26 <ynpvisitor16> sounds like a repeat of the day before the 6/11 0106 am eruption
13:18:44 <ynpvisitor16> I hope it erupts soon and that the gazers can hang in there until it does, similar conditions on 6/10, SB slacked off, I went elseware at 6pm and, viola 0106 am eruption :(
13:19:42 <ynpvisitor16> elaewhere*

16:20:07 <ynpvisitor118> grand bh dual, the worst
16:20:14 <ynpvisitor118> for in basin folks anyway
16:23:05 <ynpvisitor118> maybe Grand will have a 2nd
16:25:20 <ynpvisitor118> some nice tall bursts
16:25:43 <ynpvisitor999®> probably no second then
16:26:37 <ynpvisitor118> I've seen 2nds after 10m yet usually in spring
16:26:39 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
16:27:22 <ynpvisitor118> I think Grand is done
16:27:45 <ynpvisitor999®> yep
16:28:12 <ynpvisitor118> well nice of BH to go in the light
16:29:15 <ynpvisitor102> Struck out again
16:30:38 <ynpvisitor23> 102 must be Dave
16:33:00 <ynpvisitor102> Yep. Now
16:34:20 <ynpvisitor102> Now stopped between mammoth and boiling river. Over a hundred cars
16:34:32 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching SC and YNM
16:34:39 <ynpvisitor999®> and good luck, Dave
16:36:19 <ynpvisitor102> Hearing now that a car went off the road
16:36:49 <ynpvisitor50> :thumbsdown:
16:40:46 <ynpvisitor50> Text just arrived. Not the best cell carrier
16:47:58 <ynpvisitor23> Should have stayed Dave.
16:53:05 <Dave> Moved about 50 yards in 25 minutes
16:58:38 <ynpvisitor53> A shame you can't go back and take the Old Yellowstone Trail.
16:59:05 <ynpvisitor106> daisy
17:07:28 <Dave> Is dirt road to gardiner open?
17:07:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like Dave got stuck in a bad traffic jam
17:08:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> gues i missed the chat
17:08:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> at ;east he didnt miss the geyser
17:08:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> shame it didnt erupt4
17:13:45 <Dave> Is dirt road open?
17:20:53 <ynpvisitor31> The one behind Mammoth?
17:21:39 <ynpvisitor31> Dave, I don't see any posted closures of it but I'm just some stranger on the internet so...
17:22:28 <Dave> Yes. I may give it a shot
17:23:08 <ynpvisitor31> Is it backed up that bad heading north, sorry to hear it
17:32:10 <Dave> Dude Road is open
17:32:45 <ynpvisitor31> The dude abides
17:48:38 <ynpvisitor31> Dave
17:48:51 <ynpvisitor31> Per the lovely world of Facebook: "I’m sitting in it now. Basically an idiot tried to park on the shoulder near boiling river and fell over the side. Been here since 6pm. No progress."
18:03:30 <ynpvisitor106> sc
18:28:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> i got the Mammoth road closed text a while ago .... hope it opens so Dave can get some sleep
18:29:10 <ynpvisitor53> I hope Dave went out the dirt road
18:29:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> dont now if anyone coud move out of the line
18:30:04 <ynpvisitor53> Dirty dome takes the fun out of it this time of night:(
18:30:26 <ynpvisitor53> Flip a Uie?
18:31:26 <ynpvisitor53> 19:32:10 - I hope that was Dave
18:31:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least there are no wiggles on the seismo, being stuck on traffic and knowing you could have seen it would be frustrating.
18:32:16 <ynpvisitor53> That would send me to the garden to eat worms!
18:35:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> goodnght from me. hope the seismo waits for the daylight gazers tomorrow
18:36:05 <ynpvisitor53> Depression 2035
18:36:34 <ynpvisitor4> He does have his grass torn up. Should expose some worms.
18:36:43 <ynpvisitor4> Knight Graham.
18:41:29 <Dave> Made it to Livingston
18:41:41 <Dave> Dirt road was open
18:50:34 <ynpvisitor94> Is the camera tired? It's pointing towards the ground.
18:52:40 <ynpvisitor53> Cam working fine. Taking the horizon out of the frame opens the lens and provides a better image of the basin's surface.
18:53:33 <ynpvisitor4> The camop does that to give you a better view of the geysers. If it is in normal position the light of the sky makes the ground dark.
18:53:54 <ynpvisitor94> Ah, the auto-iris at work. Thanks for the explanation
20:04:37 <ynpvisitor87> Maybe hk will be babysitting Giant all night
20:19:52 <ynpvisitor2> its pretty safe to leave for several hours now.
