03:35:30 <ynpvisitor117> grand 2nd
04:14:34 <ynpvisitor401> SteveO at Bulger ... i expect he will check F&M
04:16:13 <ynpvisitor117> Good, it was too early for R'side steam was left of R'side and right of Grotto
04:24:18 <ynpvisitor401> did it stop and start and lat ~30m?
04:25:49 <ynpvisitor117> yes, I,ll look at it again to be sure
04:26:31 <ynpvisitor401> usually see the pause ~12m in and then restarts several times, should be clear in this morning condition
04:27:14 <ynpvisitor401> thats good confirmation. cant tell so much i afternoon
04:28:59 <ynpvisitor401> Castle wndow may need to change, it was before the start of the VEC window
04:30:31 <ynpvisitor401> fluffy
04:31:56 <ynpvisitor117> it paused at 0509 and restarted 0510, initiak start 0455
04:32:35 <ynpvisitor401> ok, that sounds likely F&M
04:39:42 <ynpvisitor401> SteveO confirmed it
04:40:11 <ynpvisitor401> nice short interval, now they all need to stay like that
04:40:59 <ynpvisitor401> and not be 3.5 to 8.5 days
04:41:18 <ynpvisitor117> Great! I don't like posting unless I feel sure, it looked right
04:41:49 <ynpvisitor401> I would post with a ? until someone confirms
04:42:28 <ynpvisitor117> I'll do that next time good tip, thanks
04:54:36 <ynpvisitor401> You can update the F&M comment to indicate it was confirmed too.
04:55:25 <ynpvisitor117> ok, will do
04:58:18 <ynpvisitor117> JimS also confirmed it
05:11:48 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:13:52 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:13:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
05:17:42 <Dave from B™> For those of you keeping score....F&M 14 Steamboat 13 Giant 10
05:18:12 <ynpvisitor117> nice
05:18:57 <Dave from B™> Night 2 of NG was better but misinformation really bugs me. OF is not the tallest predictable geyser and the name Yellowstone did NOT come from the color of the walls of the Grand Canyon....UGGH UGGH UGGH!
05:19:47 <Dave from B™> Boy oh boy, Grand Prismatic is so beautiful from the air
05:22:29 <ynpvisitor999®> morning lc
05:22:30 <lc> hey Dave
05:22:38 <lc> morning
05:22:43 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
05:22:56 <lc> we agree last night was better
05:23:30 <Dave from B™> Oh, yeah...grizzly baby is not a pup, either
05:23:57 <lc> way too much time with the one bear
05:23:59 <Dave from B™> but to me that is a mistake because of live tv
05:24:12 <ynpvisitor401> did you enjoy them petting the grizzly?
05:24:41 <Dave from B™> They seem to be so concerned about close up time with wild animals....Is that what people want to see?
05:24:44 <Dave from B™> brb
05:24:53 <lc> did notice that and OF tallest predictable geyser
05:26:28 <lc> 401 too much time with that.
05:26:36 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's not the tallest predictable geyser (that's Grand), nor the most regular (I think that goes to Bead?). SB did do a great attempt before the disturbance at being the tallest predictable geyser.
05:29:08 <ynpvisitor999®> most regular, as in one of the better known geysers out there. I'm fairly certain there are more regular geysers out there
05:29:32 <lc> to me a geyser erupting 4 to 8 day is not predictable.
05:36:17 <ynpvisitor31> It was sad that they had 5 Griz at Tom Miner basin live but instead we get to watch some roadside attraction bear
05:36:38 <ynpvisitor31> Live aerial shot of Fountain was cool
05:37:05 <ynpvisitor31> Fountain ie and Riverside (for like a split second)
05:39:22 <ynpvisitor31> I believe they're trying to copy a show they did called Safari Live
05:39:25 <lc> maybe more people interested in animals than geysers.
05:40:15 <ynpvisitor31> The show reminds me more of the 24x7 news channel than an informative live presentation of the park
05:40:42 <ynpvisitor31> Like if you wanted to be successful at this program you'd figure they would have partnered with the folks who could deliver on wildlife or geyser viewings
05:41:21 <ynpvisitor31> OK so the park uses helicopters to collar wolves, maybe you should use a plane if you want to find the wolves because as soon as they see helicopter they're gonna HIDE
05:48:17 <ynpvisitor52> NG not going to satisfy everyone, but that being said the show was awfully weak. They should have hired someone who actually know Yellowstone, had a written thought-out script, and then found live shots and video to illustrate.
05:48:54 <Dave from B™> So, for profit , airplane tours over YNP are not allowed. Is that correct?
05:50:46 <ynpvisitor52> I see planes overhead all the time. I think you can hire a plane in Bozeman and go have a look if you want. Don't know about organized tours. Very bad idea.
05:51:07 <Kevin L™> No air tours over Yellowstone.
05:52:03 <Kevin L™> I think it is also a restricted airspace. I have heard them reporting plane numbers on the scanner.
05:52:15 <Dave from B™> That is my concern. I have no desire to hear planes over YNP. It is bad enough with NPS planes and commercial airliners going overhead. I think they should all be grounded and be forced to fly around
05:53:37 <Kent> I have been give instructions and names of people to call in Bozeman for a flight. This by Association guides.
05:54:29 <Kent> I think there is an altitude resstriction
05:54:41 <ynpvisitor117> 1000ft
05:56:04 <Dave from B™> Dealing with heavy visitation cause some interesting issues. I was reading about the vault toilets at Logan Pass in Glacier
05:56:47 <Kent> Grand Canyon is a joke and has been for decades. Bruce Babbit was asked about corrective measures and he said "howitzers." If you can't ban plastic bottles you aren't going to ban planes. Lots of money.
05:57:24 <Dave from B™> Before 2014, they were pumped twice a day. Now, we almost double visitation they are pumped 4 times a day which is basically a full time job for a truck and a staffer. They have to have a $200,000 backup vehicle as well in case the main vehicle breaks down. Heavy visitation puts a strain on all resources
05:58:00 <Dave from B™> Kent, that is my concern. I ddon't want any park to become like Grand Canyon noise
05:58:01 <Kent> We are seeing this in Yellowstone every day
05:59:37 <ynpvisitor401> i m sure the wildlife people will keep flights away from yellowstone since peeps will want to see the wildlife
06:03:28 <Kevin L™> I remember once we had some military jets buzz the basin. Scanner went nuts. I think the pilots had a little explaining to do.
06:03:34 <Kevin L™> Poof!
06:04:45 <Kevin L™> Aurum
06:06:02 <ynpvisitor...> Good Morning! :)
06:06:25 <ynpvisitor401> thats easy to see today
06:06:49 <ynpvisitor...> I think you have a hard time telling fighter pilots anything. Classic extra Y chromosome group :)
06:07:28 <Kevin L™> My Brother in Law was an F-15 pilot.
06:08:35 <ynpvisitor...> I wasn't being insulting :) Probably something you want in a fighter pilot.
06:10:24 <Kevin L™> I think you are right. Works the same with Cobra pilots. We did support for them when I was in the 1st Cav.
06:14:28 <Kevin L™> When my Brother in Law was in Iraq enforcing the no fly a couple of Iraqi jet popped up. He and his partner gave chase. His buddy splashed one and my Brother in Law was about to splash the other then got thinking my missile is over $1 million. I have a tanker in the air and he doesn't. So he just chased it until it ran out of gas.
06:14:37 <Kevin L™> I like that kind of thinking.
06:15:10 <ynpvisitor...> :) A grateful taxpayer gives thanks :)
06:15:24 <ynpvisitor401> what he didnt do the weapons test?
06:16:35 <lc> Kevin, did your brother go to Black Sand Basin?
06:17:11 <lc> I still think that picture looks like that pool in BSB.
06:17:15 <Kevin L™> I don't think he made it there. Time was pretty limited.
06:28:05 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
06:28:10 <Dave from B™> LC ie
06:28:49 <Kevin L™> Looks like Giantess boils too.
06:40:30 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
06:48:37 <ynpvisitor999®> tour passing by
06:49:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Bijou's having pauses
06:52:51 <Dave from B™> Should be at least 3 days before Giant is in play
07:15:43 <Jake> Dave, why 3 more days for Giant?
07:16:12 <Jake> tomorrow starts the reasonable historical window opening
07:17:38 <Dave from B™> Strictly based on 2018 shortest activity but, I agree, it has had shorter intervals in 2007-2008
07:18:07 <Dave from B™> But, do you want to run to every "rising in Mastiff" for the next 7-10 days?
07:18:48 <Jake> that is for each person to decide. do you want to see it or not?
07:20:44 <Jake> oh, I didn't see that F&M went this morning
07:20:58 <Jake> see, that's paving the way for shortest of the year intervals :D
07:21:05 <Dave from B™> haha...of course, I do. Yep...short interval for F&M
07:21:11 <Dave from B™> :D
07:25:25 <Jake> Daisy ie
07:25:45 <Jake> make that start
07:36:19 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
07:43:44 <Jake> Plate ie ?
07:43:48 <Jake> looks puffy back there
08:22:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie static
08:25:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
08:26:42 <ynpvisitor42> Look at all those people in shorts, and I heard it snowed on Beartooth.
08:30:27 <Dave from B™> Yep....Snow on Beartooth is correct. I believe on Sunday.
08:30:51 <Dave from B™> But heat is returning this week. Forecasts in the 90's in Blgs all week with 101 on Fri and Sat
08:31:46 <Kevin L™> That isn't heat.
08:32:12 <Mike J> You tell 'em Kevin
08:32:31 <Kevin L™> Those are low temps!
08:32:36 <ynpvisitor42> It is for people that have trees and flowers.
08:32:49 <ynpvisitor42> And lawns
08:32:50 <Kevin L™> I have trees and flowers.
08:33:24 <Mike J> And lawns. (Bermuda is really grass, isn't it?)
08:34:08 <Kevin L™> I have a few word to describe bermuda and they all only have 4 letters.
08:36:16 <ynpvisitor42> One Lemon tree and a bunch of cactus does not count.
08:36:29 <ynpvisitor42> Lion
08:36:39 <ynpvisitor42> And i am delayed
08:37:02 <ynpvisitor42> Looks ini
08:37:35 <ynpvisitor999®> it is the initial
08:39:29 <Kevin L™> 3 lemon trees, 2 peach trees, 1 nectarine tree, 1 pear tree, 1 fig tree, 1 grapefruit tree, 1 apple tree, 2 apricot trees. Several flowers including california poppies, lantana, daffodils, and marigolds.
08:40:04 <ynpvisitor42> All plastic?
08:40:13 <Dave from B™> You're gonna get sick eating all that fruit
08:40:52 <Kevin L™> All real. Several rose bushes too along with some desert trees like desert willow and palo verde.
08:41:36 <ynpvisitor42> At least they do not have to repave the streets there. Just put fresh rock over the tar when it melts.
08:41:48 <Kevin L™> :)
08:43:09 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
08:44:02 <ynpvisitor42> Well, time to go, enjoy the 8 lions today.
08:44:22 <Kevin L™> Bye 42
08:44:38 <Kevin L™> SC is more fun on the cam than in person.
08:50:49 <ynpvisitor999®> SC 1047 per FRS
08:51:41 <ynpvisitor999®> should've been called ie, as it was ie 5m prior to the call
08:51:52 <ynpvisitor999®> 6m*
08:55:04 <Kevin L™> Nice, Steve O is posting Turbans
09:06:26 <Betty> morning all
09:06:33 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:06:37 <Kevin L™> hi
09:06:49 <Betty> evening DG, hi Kevin
09:07:41 <Betty> Dome ie?, no VEC cam is stuck
09:09:19 <Betty> wow, a F&M already?
09:09:49 <Kevin L™> Short interval
09:10:05 <Betty> really short
09:13:36 <Dave from B™> So, if SC becomes bigger/more active might it effect regularity of OF?
09:13:51 <ynpvisitor70> Keeps the gazers on their toes !
09:17:38 <ynpvisitor999®> It really depends on how big it'll get, Dave. If SC, for example, one day becomes so big it starts throwing rocks and such from its inner plumbing system, then yes, I'd hold my breath for OF.
09:19:06 <ynpvisitor999®> But as for now it seems that SC affects OF minimally, if at all. I do have to say that SC looks a bit weaker when OF has just gone, but that may be 'wishful thinking'.
09:19:33 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
09:19:48 <Eric> Morning
09:20:02 <Betty> morning Dave and Eric
09:20:02 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
09:20:07 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. Did you find a home for your dog yet?
09:20:24 <Eric> Not yet, we are weighing the options :-D
09:21:10 <Eric> looks like a very good chance for grand on the next cycle
09:30:42 <Dave from B™> 23 minute Turban interval
09:31:11 <Dave from B™> 5:29 Grand interval last night
09:35:04 <ynpvisitor27> moving back toward 5 hrs for fall?
09:35:48 <Kevin L™> Just until Dave gets there. Then it will go to 7h intervals.
09:36:04 <ynpvisitor27> I thought he was not coming back this fall, going hiking instead
09:36:37 <Eric> Go Grand!
09:36:40 <ynpvisitor27> no line at West Gate today.
09:37:07 <ynpvisitor31> No need to come into park, can just watch Yellowstone Live
09:37:22 <Eric> Right here :-D
09:37:29 <Dave from B™> 1 night at OF left: Sept 15
09:37:37 <Eric> grand
09:37:45 <ynpvisitor27> well, then it can throw in a 7 hour just for Dave
09:38:00 <Dave from B™> Plus going to prison at Norris sometime this year
09:38:13 <Kevin L™> Tall 1st
09:38:27 <ynpvisitor27> well I hope you wait for better patterns this next time
09:38:28 <Eric> Grand start then?
09:38:42 <ynpvisitor27> nope, Turban start posted
09:38:50 <Dave from B™> 27, it will be in October
09:39:07 <ynpvisitor27> I sure wish you could see it Dave.
09:39:38 <Kevin L™> I guess it was a grand start, but Turban went 1st. Very pretty.
09:40:10 <Dave from B™> 27, I do as well but it is okay if I miss it.
09:41:09 <Eric> Stephen G caught another steamboat...lucky duck :-D
09:42:57 <Kevin L™> I am so glad Bruce got it.
09:47:06 <Eric> ohh, that is awesome that bruce got it!
09:47:06 <ynpvisitor27> and Bruce got the gunk off his car with just warm water he said
09:47:22 <ynpvisitor27> Steamboat must have been playing nice
09:47:34 <ynpvisitor27> I have heard it was much less muddy brown this time around
09:47:40 <Eric> The 5/27 eruption didn't really affect cars either.
09:47:41 <Kevin L™> 10m so far. Looks like a 1b
09:47:52 <Eric> of course we had better wind too
09:48:10 <ynpvisitor27> just not a very good sky for it that day
09:49:06 <Eric> The sky was fine, it was just late in the day, so not that vibrant sun like this last one.
09:49:50 <Eric> Tara's picture was awesome from the bridge
09:49:58 <Dave from B™> I'm glad Bruce got Steamobat. Did he leave on Sunday then?
09:50:16 <ynpvisitor27> maybe Daisy will wait? NOPE
09:50:29 <Eric> there it goes :-D
09:50:32 <ynpvisitor27> Is that Daisy starting?
09:50:45 <ynpvisitor27> yep
09:50:49 <Betty> yep
09:51:08 <Kevin L™> Short Daisy interval too.
09:51:41 <Mike J> They're all trying to go off more quickly, hoping for that precious Nat Geo time.
09:51:53 <Dave from B™> Lots of short intervals. You know what that means
09:52:09 <Betty> yes, the end is near
09:52:25 <ynpvisitor27> ha, let's hope not before your visit Betty
09:52:25 <Kevin L™> When you run 50% of the time with ads you won't see much.
09:52:46 <Betty> I´ll take Splendid then :-)
09:52:53 <ynpvisitor27> I heard it was more like 75% ads
09:53:07 <Kevin L™> Probably right.
09:53:13 <ynpvisitor27> I think someone said 18 minutes of show
09:53:17 <Dave from B™> Either magma is almost ready to reach the surface or it means absolutely nothing
09:53:36 <ynpvisitor27> Splendid for Betty's arrival!!
09:53:51 <Kevin L™> Maybe
09:53:58 <Betty> :-D
09:54:01 <Kevin L™> Aurum will have some short intervals.
09:54:21 <Betty> buy that, Kevin
09:54:37 <Kevin L™> Aurum likes Betty
09:54:42 <Eric> Yellowstone Live, right here, with Zero Ads :-D
09:55:05 <Dave from B™> That's right and we even throw in real accurate facts once in awhile
09:55:08 <Eric> and you don't even have to subscribe to the channel.
09:55:13 <Betty> Aurums on cam = many, Aurums live = zero
09:55:24 <Eric> and a few totally inaccurate ones for fun!
09:55:39 <Dave from B™> If I hear Yellowstone is named after the color of the Grand Canyon one more time I'm going to go ballistic
09:55:58 <Mike J> happy gazing all.
09:56:17 <Eric> I heard Yellowstone was named after the color of the Grand Canyon....Go
09:56:36 <Dave from B™> @#$%@#$%^#$
09:56:37 <Dave from B™> @#$%#$%^$#
09:56:43 <Eric> Please send video of yourself going ballistic :-P
09:56:48 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:57:12 <Eric> I should add that fact to the info panel on the right!
09:57:19 <Betty> lol
09:57:32 <Dave from B™> So, it was named after color of hills along the river in Eastern Montana LONG BEFORE most even knew what YNP was
09:57:59 <Dave from B™> Originally called "Roche Jaune" French for Yellow rock
09:58:11 <Dave from B™> So, more than likely fur traders
09:58:15 <Eric> Ohh, that would be a pretty name for the park.
09:58:51 <Betty> Lion
09:58:54 <Kevin L™> Beats Grand Tetons
10:02:15 <Dave from B™> That is french as well
10:02:18 <ynpvisitor27> they said it was Yellowstone because of the canyon in Yellowstone though, not the Grand Canyon, right?
10:02:34 <Dave from B™> Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, yes
10:03:42 <ynpvisitor27> sounds like the show is somewhat of an advertisement for places outside the park
10:07:56 <Jake> did you know that Grand Prismatic Spring was named for Sgt. Prismatic of the 8th Infantry? He was the first human to ever see it and all he could say is "ain't that grand"
10:08:58 <Dave from B™> That is Poppycock, Jake
10:09:18 <Eric> I read that Jake, it's a totally interesting story.
10:09:51 <lc> just back from walk, checking the log. wondering how much is fact and how much is bs.
10:10:19 <lc> my problem I don't know the difference.
10:10:41 <Dave from B™> That is the problem with society these days...we're all confused.
10:10:44 <Eric> Always trust Jake, he would never tell a lie.
10:11:03 <Dave from B™> FYI, no thermal feature can be named after a person
10:11:14 <Dave from B™> Mountains, that's okay
10:11:23 <lc> now I don't kow if I can trust you, Eric.
10:11:34 <Eric> good call lc :-D
10:12:58 <Dave from B™> now, Daisy might be an exception to that rule
10:13:00 <Eric> I might not even be Eric!
10:18:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern is just below the log, inner tube is difficult to see. Water is olive-greenish and light roiling in the center. SB is very quiet. (all per Stephen Gemar)
10:21:44 <ynpvisitor27> he is on his way home today
10:41:49 <lc> Eric, do you have time to answer a tech question on PM?
11:29:05 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:29:25 <Kevin L™> No kidding
11:29:32 <Betty> nope
11:30:05 <Kevin L™> Need the large economy sized bottle of NoDoz® today.
11:31:04 <Betty> my streaming is so choppy today, so I cannot even see that nothing happens
11:32:45 <Betty> too bad they hide everything today
11:34:05 <Kevin L™> I think they were doing updates on something on my computer the last few days. My computer would freeze up for about 2 minutes and then start again. Every time it did that it would disconnect me from the controls and freeze the streaming.
11:34:35 <Kevin L™> Finally seems to be working now. I HATE windows 10.
11:38:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I've encountered that too, but in my case my RAM was completely filled, which led to my whole laptop freezing and eventually led to a blue screen of death
11:39:10 <ynpvisitor999®> to me the problem you're describing seems rather similar. Maybe it was some kind of script which was leaking memory or something like that
11:39:51 <Kevin L™> :P I have been looking at the usage in a popup window. For the most part the HD was at 100%. CPU and memory would vary.
12:08:34 <Kevin L™> Will Daisy go before or during OF?
12:10:33 <Dave from B™> Yes
12:11:15 <Dave from B™> Darn...wrong again
12:21:39 <ynpvisitor91> how long does it take to get to Artemisia?
12:22:04 <Jake> practice practice practice!
12:22:06 <ynpvisitor91> is it faster to come from the north?
12:22:11 <Dave from B™> From Lower Hams?
12:22:12 <Jake> oh, wrong punchline
12:22:38 <Dave from B™> Yes, it is faster from Biscuit
12:22:42 <Jake> if you have a bike, it is faster to bike to Morning Glory and walk
12:22:54 <Jake> if you have a car, it's faster to drive to Biscuit Basin and walk
12:23:20 <Kevin L™> If you are young it is a lot faster. Nasty hill between the geyser and Morning Glory Pool.
12:23:47 <Jake> ah yes, your mileage may vary ;)
12:24:00 <Jake> it also uphill from Biscuit but more gradual
12:24:20 <Kevin L™> Took me almost as much time getting up the hill as getting to the hill.
12:24:25 <Eric> Great place to take a nap mid morning :-D
12:24:44 <ynpvisitor91> 20 minutes?
12:24:52 <Kevin L™> It has an automatic wake up when it goes.
12:25:10 <Eric> Exactly Kevin, you get rocked awake..
12:25:24 <Kevin L™> It is about 2 miles from Lower Hamms.
12:25:31 <Dave from B™> I bet it is only a 10-15 minute walk from Biscuit
12:25:51 <Jake> less than 15 minute walk from Biscuit
12:26:02 <ynpvisitor91> so another mile from Morning Glory?
12:26:04 <Jake> difficulties include crossing the road which could add minutes
12:26:37 <Kevin L™> You may have to deal with a muddy path from Biscuit so wear your mud shoes.
12:26:39 <ynpvisitor8> It's a beautiful walk from Morning Glory, worth it!
12:27:02 <Dave from B™> It's less than a half mile from Morning Glory
12:27:22 <Kevin L™> But a rise of about 300 feet!
12:27:24 <Eric> Yep, both sides are really nice
12:28:09 <Eric> I fast walked from Arty, to cabins, back to grand with 2 minutes to spare and then fast walked back up to arty and got the start :-D
12:29:02 <Eric> I was tired after that route...
12:29:20 <Dave from B™> Sounds like a "Family Circle" route
12:29:38 <Jake> yeah, a "300 foot rise" like OF hits 300 feet
12:30:28 <ynpvisitor91> from Lower Hams, no bike, 25 min?
12:31:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:31:20 <Dave from B™> I would say more like 30
12:34:05 <ynpvisitor91> Thanks that's what I would think. Trying to explain distances to someone who is going to OF. They aren't grasping the distances involved in "walking around to see things"
12:34:58 <Dave from B™> With no bike, I put on 6-12 miles a day at UGB
12:36:23 <Jake> I've overheard so many app and fitbit conversations in the UGB about how this is the most steps they've ever done
12:36:26 <ynpvisitor91> I told them they needed 3 days at OF to see it all, and they want to do 'a few hours'
12:38:37 <Jake> "see it all" could mean a lot of things
12:38:49 <Jake> if they're mobile, they could walk past everything in the course of a day
12:38:54 <Dave from B™> 91, if they want to do non gazer activities, a few hours is normal for visitors. How many days are they spending in the park?
12:39:33 <lc> I made it from Grotto to the cabin in 25 min.
12:39:43 <Kevin L™> My brother and I put on 37 miles in 4 days according to my fitbit.
12:40:20 <ynpvisitor79> :p
12:40:25 <Kevin L™> Of course the fitbit also says I have been asleep for the past 2 hours.
12:40:56 <ynpvisitor79> it is most likely correct
12:41:19 <Kevin L™> It always says I am asleep in church.
12:41:33 <Dave from B™> Kevin, what parts of your body have you moved in the last 2 hours?
12:41:36 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Joe
12:41:44 <Joe´> Hi DG
12:41:55 <Dave from B™> Hi Joe
12:42:14 <Kevin L™> Mostly hands Dave
12:42:16 <Joe´> Hello Dave and Kevin
12:43:32 <Kevin L™> Good afternoon
12:43:50 <Betty> hi Joe
12:44:49 <Betty> I walk more miles a day in UGB that in a whole week here - single way
12:45:04 <Betty> that = than
12:45:09 <Joe´> I am envious of your walks, but I used to do the same :), I felt a great accomplishment when I did Uncle Toms trail a few years ago
12:45:30 <Dave from B™> Joe, that's a tough one
12:45:41 <Betty> yeah
12:46:01 <Joe´> Yes, but it was fun, alas never again
12:46:14 <Betty> Monument is hard too
12:46:49 <Betty> LC ie
12:47:10 <lc> did UTT 8 or 10 years ago.
12:47:15 <ynpvisitor91> is it 8 miles from UGB to Great Fountain? Still trying to explain things
12:47:40 <Kevin L™> Monument is OK the first half then kills you.
12:47:43 <Dave from B™> Sounds right
12:48:05 <Betty> Jake, where is Brown spouters, and why are they in the list of common UGB geysers?
12:49:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
12:49:06 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:49:07 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:49:08 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:49:23 <Dave from B™> woohoo
12:49:28 <Eric> nice
12:49:29 <Betty> nice I´m lagged and wait
12:49:29 <Kevin L™> Two in a day!
12:49:35 <Dave from B™> Hi GRAHAM
12:49:41 <Betty> FUN
12:49:48 <Eric> powerful looking aurum
12:50:07 <Kevin L™> That was fun!
12:50:29 <Kevin L™> Was not expecting that!
12:50:40 <Betty> cool
12:50:43 <Joe´> they just keep getting better
12:50:56 <GO GIANT> guess I should have joined as GO AURUM
12:51:34 <lc> anybody get duration on that?
12:51:39 <GO GIANT> i see barbara reported boiling in Morning this morning
12:51:49 <GO GIANT> thats all we need, another big geyser to get going!
12:52:16 <Kevin L™> Think it was about 2m lc
12:52:35 <GO GIANT> so its 14 13 10 0 F&M Steamboat Giant Morning
12:52:47 <lc> seemed longer than normal to me.
12:53:25 <Dave from B™> I feel Giant will pass Steamboat at some time this year
12:53:38 <Dave from B™> lc, that was a nice one
12:53:54 <lc> I thought so.
12:53:57 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
12:54:07 <GO GIANT> yeah will be interesting to see if STeamboat stays in the 14 day range or is more variable
12:54:33 <GO GIANT> Giant could shorten up.....
12:54:59 <ynpvisitor78> Wait, what? Morning again?
12:55:03 <GO GIANT> hopefully F&M stay on short intervals
12:55:46 <GO GIANT> Dave - I rrive on Sep 15, see you at Giant or F&M
12:56:03 <GO GIANT> o Morning
12:56:22 <GO GIANT> but it boiled
12:56:56 <GO GIANT> i dont think Ftn is having long intervals, but there are very few reports recently ... its not getting any love
12:57:05 <Dave from B™> Nice, Graham...we''ll be around in the evening/next morning
12:57:25 <Dave from B™> Is Maurenn mad at Fountain?:D
12:57:30 <GO GIANT> i will be down mid afternoon, flying into BZN
12:57:46 <GO GIANT> no, shes in lov with GF
12:58:08 <lc> parking may be a problem
12:58:19 <Joe´> Aurum was 14:49:04 to 14:50:04 exactly 1min
12:58:39 <ynpvisitor78> Last time I saw Morning, during what I consider to be an aborted eruption, it boiled to about 3 m. A 2m boil is a pretty substantive thing, IMHO.
12:58:55 <lc> I thought it was longer. thanks.
12:58:56 <Dave from B™> I'll be with Michelle, Parker and Michelle's brother. We'll be hiking 5-10 miles a day on backcountry tails
12:59:11 <ynpvisitor999®> how long does it take for Aurum to appear above Giantess' shoulder?
12:59:29 <lc> not long.
12:59:43 <Dave from B™> Jake, you want to give a good answer for that one?
12:59:53 <GO GIANT> Barb didnt say how big the boil was today
13:00:13 <Betty> you are there, Dave? I arrive the 19th
13:00:28 <GO GIANT> Aurum is usually 70s whenever i have timed it, so maybe 5s?
13:00:45 <Dave from B™> Sorry, I leave the 16th and then turn around and take Parker to Bellingham on the 18th
13:00:51 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
13:00:53 <Dave from B™> oops 19th
13:00:56 <Betty> ah, bummer
13:00:57 <ynpvisitor78> Sorry, misread - I saw a post that said "2m" and though it referred to Morning. My mistake.
13:01:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll change it to 1449
13:02:12 <GO GIANT> we can split night-time Giant watches Betty
13:02:36 <Betty> I doubt I do any night watches
13:05:43 <Dave from B™> My wife had to let the dog out at 3 this morning. She said Mars was incredible
13:06:30 <GO GIANT> yeah its hard ..... if the intervals stay this variable its hard to do much at night. The intervals between strong hot periods seem fairly long tho so if it stays like that you can leave after a strong hot period or time the return to reduce fatigue
13:07:01 <Kevin L™> I have been watching it. Pretty fun. Check just after sunset and you can see (from left to right) Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, and Venus.
13:07:22 <Dave from B™> Yep. We saw all 4 last night around 1000
13:07:46 <ynpvisitor91> staying at OF for your hiking trip, Dave from B™?
13:09:29 <Dave from B™> 2 nights at Lake Lodge cabins and 1 at OFI Old House
13:10:23 <Dave from B™> Was going to be a romantic trip with my wife. Then Parker's school starts late and Michelle's brother from WI decided to come along as well
13:10:32 <GO GIANT> nice, maybe yo will be ot all night if the heating is banging the pipes. have they fixed that now?
13:11:16 <GO GIANT> my u key must not be working
13:15:18 <Dave from B™> I've never had trouble sleeping at OFI Old House. Bottle of wine in the mezzanine usually fixes any problems
13:15:39 <GO GIANT> Castle might be erupting for Yellowstone "Live" tonight That would be a good one as they can cut to it whenever and get a minute or two of the eruption and then go back for steam phase if its a major
13:16:28 <GO GIANT> haha i had a terrible night once and hardly slept, went out toe basin a couple of times. next night i was too tired to stay at Giant .... and you can guess what happened
13:18:32 <ynpvisitor14> here is this afternoon AURUM you decide the time
13:20:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1449:00 based on eruptive steam appearing clearly at that time
13:21:04 <Kevin L™> Looks like it to me too.
13:21:24 <Dave from B™> Not a fond memory, Graham
13:21:33 <ynpvisitor999®> and pretty much instantly above the geyserite shoulder
13:21:42 <Joe´> Your eyes are way better than mine, :) thats why I posted it
13:22:23 <Betty> headed out, night all
13:22:31 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:22:44 <Joe´> Night Betty
13:22:49 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
13:22:55 <Kevin L™> The in basin times seem to be the same as the wc times on Aurum. Daisy shows up later.
13:23:02 <Kevin L™> Night Betty
14:53:38 <Kevin L™> Daisy ie
14:57:48 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
14:58:32 <GO GIANT> looks like Micah had fun at Lone Star
14:59:51 <Kevin L™> Great place for lunch. Are the wild strawberries and raspberries ripe?
15:00:14 <Dave from B™> Isn't Lone star too tall for Micah's liking?:)
15:00:38 <Dave from B™> I feel bad that Mioah hasn't seen Steamboat yet
15:00:46 <GO GIANT> I think he liked Giant .... so "no"
15:01:02 <GO GIANT> hopefully you both will get to see it
15:01:29 <Kevin L™> I think he would enjoy a broken waterline.
15:12:34 <Kevin L™> OF
15:16:47 <Kevin L™> indy
15:16:49 <Kevin L™> .
15:16:49 <Kevin L™> .

15:16:52 <Kevin L™> .
15:16:58 <ynpvisitor999®> woohoo!
15:17:14 <ynpvisitor999®> early, too
15:18:01 <Dave from B™> Dome effect?
15:18:39 <Kevin L™> Center of window is 1703
15:18:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee's probably camera-shy, as it would've likely ended up in the live show if it had decided to use its previous couple of intervals
15:18:54 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Lion splashing
15:19:13 <Kevin L™> It probably didn't want to star in that bomb.
15:21:44 <GO GIANT> will they even be at OF tonight?
15:22:15 <Dave from B™> Wolves is main focus tonight
15:22:54 <Dave from B™> I'm hoping the future is the main focus tomorrow
15:23:04 <ynpvisitor999®> don't think so, as, unless the ~1848 OF is a short, OF won't fall in the broadcasting time
15:24:10 <GO GIANT> ey say OF yesterday, why come back. I bet they do beavers again
15:25:10 <ynpvisitor999®> per NG programming schedule for Yellowstone Live: S1 E4 Battle of Giants
15:26:07 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
15:26:17 <Kevin L™> Does that mean they will be at Giant Geyser?
15:26:39 <GO GIANT> :)
15:26:55 <ynpvisitor999®> ugh, that almost made me enter Little Cub as Giant...
15:28:28 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
15:30:07 <GO GIANT> lazy start
15:31:52 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Indy, nice work today
15:33:06 <Dave from B™> Giants: Griz vs Wolves or Steamboat vs Giant. I think we know the NG answer
15:33:21 <ynpvisitor999®> the first one
15:33:50 <GO GIANT> more griz petting, maybe wolf rides too?
15:34:27 <ynpvisitor116> Love a good wolf ride!
15:35:03 <Dave from B™> Tonight, the host is going to help a wolf give birth
15:35:41 <ynpvisitor999®> though if the latter, I'd imagine it a bit like this: "(when showing SB) Here we see the tallest geyser, its name is... uhmm... uh... ermm... (switches to Giant) Anyway, this is another tall geyser, I think it's named Giant? (back to wolves and grizzlys)"
15:36:35 <Dave from B™> Hopefully they will do another flyover of a geyser even though they won't know what they are looking at
15:36:50 <Dave from B™> Time to help close the makret. Have a great evening everyone!
15:36:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Same to you, Dave
15:37:19 <Kevin L™> Knight Dave
15:40:15 <GO GIANT> a walk round Fountain loop showing all the thermal features would be nice, they could go to it and then elsewhere when they crew moves and then back
15:40:48 <GO GIANT> and at they end theres the sign telling them its Spasm thats erupting all the time
15:41:02 <GO GIANT> and Jet geyser named because it sounds like a jet engine
15:41:40 <GO GIANT> and Ftn doesnt have any water in it so its a dormant geyser
15:42:21 <GO GIANT> will be a great show
15:42:26 <ynpvisitor999®> and suddenly Morning surprises them all, followed by Fountain and Morning's Thief
15:42:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I may as well, right?
15:42:45 <GO GIANT> and thats when they switch quickly to commercial
15:43:04 <GO GIANT> they must do this all the time
15:43:12 <GO GIANT> no biggie
15:43:26 <ynpvisitor999®> and that's also when conspiracy theorists will go ham, because of the quick switch to commercials
15:44:24 <GO GIANT> yes, they gave the true tourist view of OF. looked at it after it started. oh, is it erupting then left before it ended
15:44:50 <GO GIANT> that tells you how much showtime there is between commercials
15:45:35 <ynpvisitor999®> so you're watching more commercials than the actual show?
15:45:48 <Kevin L™> I think so.
15:46:03 <GO GIANT> yeah they were in commercial break when OF started and cut back to commercial before it ended
15:46:13 <Kevin L™> It is worse than an NBC broadcast of a Nascar race.
15:46:24 <ynpvisitor999®> if so, I'm happy that in the Netherlands there's a maximum amount of commercials allowed, ~15m per hour.
15:46:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
15:46:28 <Eric> Trying to compress what happens in Yellowstone into live programming is silly.
15:46:29 <Eric> grand
15:46:47 <Eric> Beautiful
15:47:10 <GO GIANT> theres Grand
15:47:43 <ynpvisitor999®> G--
15:48:07 <GO GIANT> just enough time after BH
15:49:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day after this Grand
15:52:18 <Kevin L™> Nice spikes in there.
15:52:34 <ynpvisitor999®> 6m
15:54:38 <ynpvisitor999®> 8m
15:55:32 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it's going to be a 1b
15:55:36 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
15:56:02 <Kevin L™> DG broke it.
15:56:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd be more likely to break SC and Lion than Grand, but if you say so... GO ECONOMIC!
15:57:19 <Kevin L™> Thought we had a pause there.
15:58:10 <ynpvisitor999®> and done
15:58:32 <GO GIANT> i still get another minute
15:59:17 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Guessing G1Q
15:59:51 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m39s
16:00:08 <Kevin L™> This looks like a good time to feed chickens.
16:00:29 <ynpvisitor116> GO CHICKENS
16:00:53 <ynpvisitor999®> apparantly I did not only break Grand, but also the stream. I'm signing off, have fun watching a white X and Yellowstone Live if you're still watching that.
16:01:12 <ynpvisitor999®> [i]slowly backs away[/i]
16:01:59 <Kevin L™> Is it just me or is streaming dead.
16:05:24 <Kevin L™> back
16:09:50 <ynpvisitor43> Lion
16:10:51 <ynpvisitor43> Does this answer my question of who broke it this morning? It was supposed to go 8 times.
16:17:10 <ynpvisitor43> Nice lion.
16:17:24 <ynpvisitor43> How do you get a volcano to stop?
16:17:43 <ynpvisitor43> Invite a hurricane!
17:00:58 <GO GIANT> nice view of sentinel meadows
17:01:53 <ynpvisitor94> "Virtually" inaccessible
17:02:09 <ynpvisitor94> Um, unless you know you just walk out there
17:03:14 <GO GIANT> well its illegal to view the pool
17:03:31 <GO GIANT> so they are right, unless you have a helicopter
17:04:06 <GO GIANT> or go off trail and walk up illegally
17:05:37 <ynpvisitor91> I am glad they said inaccessible instead of advertising it to zillions
17:07:50 <GO GIANT> all these live shots with snow
17:08:38 <GO GIANT> morning shots at Norris
17:08:58 <GO GIANT> FTN
17:09:38 <ynpvisitor4> Make a note on GT - Record number of hats at Norris is 37
17:10:17 <Kevin L™> Is that all?
17:20:01 <Kevin L™> Daqisy
17:20:12 <Kevin L™> or something similar
17:20:15 <ynpvisitor34> Tom Miner Basin wolves
17:20:35 <ynpvisitor34> Steamboat pack most likely ;)
17:23:43 <ynpvisitor69> Magma Pack
17:24:31 <Kevin L™> Is that like 6 large beers?
17:24:58 <ynpvisitor69> :)
17:25:16 <ynpvisitor34> Are watching a dog looking for scat?
17:26:51 <ynpvisitor34>
17:27:29 <ynpvisitor34> No updates this year but last year Steamboat pack had pups in Tom Miner Basin
17:30:12 <Kevin L™> Lion
17:32:18 <GO GIANT> i think they gave up on trying to be live and went to recorded fottage where they could get a more coherent story
17:36:04 <Kevin L™> Castle.
17:37:09 <GO GIANT> i wonder if they have a cam there
17:37:31 <Kevin L™> Probably not
17:37:33 <ynpvisitor69> They should have put a cam on top of the Inn. Fun stuff tonight
17:41:26 <GO GIANT> yeah they showed some steamboat video
17:49:41 <Kevin L™> Nice Castle bursts
17:52:32 <Goblackhole> Going to start sitting on Giant tomorrow to see if it will start having hot periods.
17:52:54 <Goblackhole> Thanks for catching dome guys. I was wondering if it was going to start soon. B
17:55:00 <GO GIANT> good luck with Giant......always fun to see what my favorite geyser is doing too
17:56:17 <GO GIANT> Lovely Castle viewing
17:56:38 <Kent> A good eruption
17:56:47 <ynpvisitor34> This Yellowstone Live footage is great
17:57:11 <ynpvisitor34> They've been on Castle since 1935 ;)
17:57:26 <ynpvisitor37> Lighting is superb.
18:01:29 <GO GIANT> better show, at least they knew it was Steamboat and how many eruptions it has had
18:01:52 <GO GIANT> sentinel meadows view was nice and more of Ftn erupting
18:03:08 <Kent> Wolf cubs? Must be a Britishism like geezer.
18:40:23 <ynpvisitor8> Is Lion one and done again?
18:41:17 <Kevin L™> There have been 2 so ar
18:41:33 <ynpvisitor8> I did not count ini
18:42:54 <ynpvisitor8> That would drive the experts nuts, arguing if you count the ini.
18:42:58 <ynpvisitor8> Weeeeee
18:43:15 <ynpvisitor8> Lion IE delayed
18:43:26 <ynpvisitor8> Short?
18:43:43 <ynpvisitor8> Or minor?
18:45:10 <ynpvisitor8> 18:12 was not an ini?
19:40:54 <ynpvisitor107> That is interesting.
19:41:17 <ynpvisitor107> Wonder what kind of light that is.
