05:35:30 <ynpvisitor117> grand 2nd
06:14:34 <ynpvisitor401> SteveO at Bulger ... i expect he will check F&M
06:16:13 <ynpvisitor117> Good, it was too early for R'side steam was left of R'side and right of Grotto
06:24:18 <ynpvisitor401> did it stop and start and lat ~30m?
06:25:49 <ynpvisitor117> yes, I,ll look at it again to be sure
06:26:31 <ynpvisitor401> usually see the pause ~12m in and then restarts several times, should be clear in this morning condition
06:27:14 <ynpvisitor401> thats good confirmation. cant tell so much i afternoon
06:28:59 <ynpvisitor401> Castle wndow may need to change, it was before the start of the VEC window
06:30:31 <ynpvisitor401> fluffy
06:31:56 <ynpvisitor117> it paused at 0509 and restarted 0510, initiak start 0455
06:32:35 <ynpvisitor401> ok, that sounds likely F&M
06:39:42 <ynpvisitor401> SteveO confirmed it
06:40:11 <ynpvisitor401> nice short interval, now they all need to stay like that
06:40:59 <ynpvisitor401> and not be 3.5 to 8.5 days
06:41:18 <ynpvisitor117> Great! I don't like posting unless I feel sure, it looked right
06:41:49 <ynpvisitor401> I would post with a ? until someone confirms
06:42:28 <ynpvisitor117> I'll do that next time good tip, thanks
06:54:36 <ynpvisitor401> You can update the F&M comment to indicate it was confirmed too.
06:55:25 <ynpvisitor117> ok, will do
06:58:18 <ynpvisitor117> JimS also confirmed it
07:11:48 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:13:52 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
07:13:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
07:17:42 <Dave from B™> For those of you keeping score....F&M 14 Steamboat 13 Giant 10
07:18:12 <ynpvisitor117> nice
07:18:57 <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!
07:19:47 <Dave from B™> Boy oh boy, Grand Prismatic is so beautiful from the air
07:22:29 <ynpvisitor999®> morning lc
07:22:30 <lc> hey Dave
07:22:38 <lc> morning
07:22:43 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
07:22:56 <lc> we agree last night was better
07:23:30 <Dave from B™> Oh, yeah...grizzly baby is not a pup, either
07:23:57 <lc> way too much time with the one bear
07:23:59 <Dave from B™> but to me that is a mistake because of live tv
07:24:12 <ynpvisitor401> did you enjoy them petting the grizzly?
07:24:41 <Dave from B™> They seem to be so concerned about close up time with wild animals....Is that what people want to see?
07:24:44 <Dave from B™> brb
07:24:53 <lc> did notice that and OF tallest predictable geyser
07:26:28 <lc> 401 too much time with that.
07:26:36 <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.
07:29:08 <ynpvisitor999®> most regular, as in one of the better known geysers out there. I'm fairly certain there are more regular geysers out there
07:29:32 <lc> to me a geyser erupting 4 to 8 day is not predictable.
07:36:17 <ynpvisitor31> It was sad that they had 5 Griz at Tom Miner basin live but instead we get to watch some roadside attraction bear
07:36:38 <ynpvisitor31> Live aerial shot of Fountain was cool
07:37:05 <ynpvisitor31> Fountain ie and Riverside (for like a split second)
07:39:22 <ynpvisitor31> I believe they're trying to copy a show they did called Safari Live
07:39:25 <lc> maybe more people interested in animals than geysers.
07:40:15 <ynpvisitor31> The show reminds me more of the 24x7 news channel than an informative live presentation of the park
07:40:42 <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
07:41:21 <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
07:48:17 <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.
07:48:54 <Dave from B™> So, for profit , airplane tours over YNP are not allowed. Is that correct?
07:50:46 <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.
07:51:07 <Kevin L™> No air tours over Yellowstone.
07:52:03 <Kevin L™> I think it is also a restricted airspace. I have heard them reporting plane numbers on the scanner.
07:52:15 <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
07:53:37 <Kent> I have been give instructions and names of people to call in Bozeman for a flight. This by Association guides.
07:54:29 <Kent> I think there is an altitude resstriction
07:54:41 <ynpvisitor117> 1000ft
07:56:04 <Dave from B™> Dealing with heavy visitation cause some interesting issues. I was reading about the vault toilets at Logan Pass in Glacier
07:56:47 <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.
07:57:24 <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
07:58:00 <Dave from B™> Kent, that is my concern. I ddon't want any park to become like Grand Canyon noise
07:58:01 <Kent> We are seeing this in Yellowstone every day
07:59:37 <ynpvisitor401> i m sure the wildlife people will keep flights away from yellowstone since peeps will want to see the wildlife
08:03:28 <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.
08:03:34 <Kevin L™> Poof!
08:04:45 <Kevin L™> Aurum
08:06:02 <ynpvisitor...> Good Morning! :)
08:06:25 <ynpvisitor401> thats easy to see today
08:06:49 <ynpvisitor...> I think you have a hard time telling fighter pilots anything. Classic extra Y chromosome group :)
08:07:28 <Kevin L™> My Brother in Law was an F-15 pilot.
08:08:35 <ynpvisitor...> I wasn't being insulting :) Probably something you want in a fighter pilot.
08:10:24 <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.
08:14:28 <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.
08:14:37 <Kevin L™> I like that kind of thinking.
08:15:10 <ynpvisitor...> :) A grateful taxpayer gives thanks :)
08:15:24 <ynpvisitor401> what he didnt do the weapons test?
08:16:35 <lc> Kevin, did your brother go to Black Sand Basin?
08:17:11 <lc> I still think that picture looks like that pool in BSB.
08:17:15 <Kevin L™> I don't think he made it there. Time was pretty limited.
08:28:05 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
08:28:10 <Dave from B™> LC ie
08:28:49 <Kevin L™> Looks like Giantess boils too.
08:40:30 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
08:48:37 <ynpvisitor999®> tour passing by
08:49:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Bijou's having pauses
08:52:51 <Dave from B™> Should be at least 3 days before Giant is in play
09:15:43 <Jake> Dave, why 3 more days for Giant?
09:16:12 <Jake> tomorrow starts the reasonable historical window opening
09:17:38 <Dave from B™> Strictly based on 2018 shortest activity but, I agree, it has had shorter intervals in 2007-2008
09:18:07 <Dave from B™> But, do you want to run to every "rising in Mastiff" for the next 7-10 days?
09:18:48 <Jake> that is for each person to decide. do you want to see it or not?
09:20:44 <Jake> oh, I didn't see that F&M went this morning
09:20:58 <Jake> see, that's paving the way for shortest of the year intervals :D
09:21:05 <Dave from B™> haha...of course, I do. Yep...short interval for F&M
09:21:11 <Dave from B™> :D
09:25:25 <Jake> Daisy ie
09:25:45 <Jake> make that start
09:36:19 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
09:43:44 <Jake> Plate ie ?
09:43:48 <Jake> looks puffy back there
10:22:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie static
10:25:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
10:26:42 <ynpvisitor42> Look at all those people in shorts, and I heard it snowed on Beartooth.
10:30:27 <Dave from B™> Yep....Snow on Beartooth is correct. I believe on Sunday.
10:30:51 <Dave from B™> But heat is returning this week. Forecasts in the 90's in Blgs all week with 101 on Fri and Sat
10:31:46 <Kevin L™> That isn't heat.
10:32:12 <Mike J> You tell 'em Kevin
10:32:31 <Kevin L™> Those are low temps!
10:32:36 <ynpvisitor42> It is for people that have trees and flowers.
10:32:49 <ynpvisitor42> And lawns
10:32:50 <Kevin L™> I have trees and flowers.
10:33:24 <Mike J> And lawns. (Bermuda is really grass, isn't it?)
10:34:08 <Kevin L™> I have a few word to describe bermuda and they all only have 4 letters.
10:36:16 <ynpvisitor42> One Lemon tree and a bunch of cactus does not count.
10:36:29 <ynpvisitor42> Lion
10:36:39 <ynpvisitor42> And i am delayed
10:37:02 <ynpvisitor42> Looks ini
10:37:35 <ynpvisitor999®> it is the initial
10:39:29 <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.
10:40:04 <ynpvisitor42> All plastic?
10:40:13 <Dave from B™> You're gonna get sick eating all that fruit
10:40:52 <Kevin L™> All real. Several rose bushes too along with some desert trees like desert willow and palo verde.
10:41:36 <ynpvisitor42> At least they do not have to repave the streets there. Just put fresh rock over the tar when it melts.
10:41:48 <Kevin L™> :)
10:43:09 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
10:44:02 <ynpvisitor42> Well, time to go, enjoy the 8 lions today.
10:44:22 <Kevin L™> Bye 42
10:44:38 <Kevin L™> SC is more fun on the cam than in person.
10:50:49 <ynpvisitor999®> SC 1047 per FRS
10:51:41 <ynpvisitor999®> should've been called ie, as it was ie 5m prior to the call
10:51:52 <ynpvisitor999®> 6m*
10:55:04 <Kevin L™> Nice, Steve O is posting Turbans
11:06:26 <Betty> morning all
11:06:33 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
11:06:37 <Kevin L™> hi
11:06:49 <Betty> evening DG, hi Kevin
11:07:41 <Betty> Dome ie?, no VEC cam is stuck
11:09:19 <Betty> wow, a F&M already?
11:09:49 <Kevin L™> Short interval
11:10:05 <Betty> really short
11:13:36 <Dave from B™> So, if SC becomes bigger/more active might it effect regularity of OF?
11:13:51 <ynpvisitor70> Keeps the gazers on their toes !
11:17:38 <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.
11:19:06 <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'.
11:19:33 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
11:19:48 <Eric> Morning
11:20:02 <Betty> morning Dave and Eric
11:20:02 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
11:20:07 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. Did you find a home for your dog yet?
11:20:24 <Eric> Not yet, we are weighing the options :-D
11:21:10 <Eric> looks like a very good chance for grand on the next cycle
11:30:42 <Dave from B™> 23 minute Turban interval
11:31:11 <Dave from B™> 5:29 Grand interval last night
11:35:04 <ynpvisitor27> moving back toward 5 hrs for fall?
11:35:48 <Kevin L™> Just until Dave gets there. Then it will go to 7h intervals.
11:36:04 <ynpvisitor27> I thought he was not coming back this fall, going hiking instead
11:36:37 <Eric> Go Grand!
11:36:40 <ynpvisitor27> no line at West Gate today.
11:37:07 <ynpvisitor31> No need to come into park, can just watch Yellowstone Live
11:37:22 <Eric> Right here :-D
11:37:29 <Dave from B™> 1 night at OF left: Sept 15
11:37:37 <Eric> grand
11:37:45 <ynpvisitor27> well, then it can throw in a 7 hour just for Dave
11:38:00 <Dave from B™> Plus going to prison at Norris sometime this year
11:38:13 <Kevin L™> Tall 1st
11:38:27 <ynpvisitor27> well I hope you wait for better patterns this next time
11:38:28 <Eric> Grand start then?
11:38:42 <ynpvisitor27> nope, Turban start posted
11:38:50 <Dave from B™> 27, it will be in October
11:39:07 <ynpvisitor27> I sure wish you could see it Dave.
11:39:38 <Kevin L™> I guess it was a grand start, but Turban went 1st. Very pretty.
11:40:10 <Dave from B™> 27, I do as well but it is okay if I miss it.
11:41:09 <Eric> Stephen G caught another steamboat...lucky duck :-D
11:42:57 <Kevin L™> I am so glad Bruce got it.
11:47:06 <Eric> ohh, that is awesome that bruce got it!
11:47:06 <ynpvisitor27> and Bruce got the gunk off his car with just warm water he said
11:47:22 <ynpvisitor27> Steamboat must have been playing nice
11:47:34 <ynpvisitor27> I have heard it was much less muddy brown this time around
11:47:40 <Eric> The 5/27 eruption didn't really affect cars either.
11:47:41 <Kevin L™> 10m so far. Looks like a 1b
11:47:52 <Eric> of course we had better wind too
11:48:10 <ynpvisitor27> just not a very good sky for it that day
11:49:06 <Eric> The sky was fine, it was just late in the day, so not that vibrant sun like this last one.
11:49:50 <Eric> Tara's picture was awesome from the bridge
11:49:58 <Dave from B™> I'm glad Bruce got Steamobat. Did he leave on Sunday then?
11:50:16 <ynpvisitor27> maybe Daisy will wait? NOPE
11:50:29 <Eric> there it goes :-D
11:50:32 <ynpvisitor27> Is that Daisy starting?
11:50:45 <ynpvisitor27> yep
11:50:49 <Betty> yep
11:51:08 <Kevin L™> Short Daisy interval too.
11:51:41 <Mike J> They're all trying to go off more quickly, hoping for that precious Nat Geo time.
11:51:53 <Dave from B™> Lots of short intervals. You know what that means
11:52:09 <Betty> yes, the end is near
11:52:25 <ynpvisitor27> ha, let's hope not before your visit Betty
11:52:25 <Kevin L™> When you run 50% of the time with ads you won't see much.
11:52:46 <Betty> I´ll take Splendid then :-)
11:52:53 <ynpvisitor27> I heard it was more like 75% ads
11:53:07 <Kevin L™> Probably right.
11:53:13 <ynpvisitor27> I think someone said 18 minutes of show
11:53:17 <Dave from B™> Either magma is almost ready to reach the surface or it means absolutely nothing
11:53:36 <ynpvisitor27> Splendid for Betty's arrival!!
11:53:51 <Kevin L™> Maybe
11:53:58 <Betty> :-D
11:54:01 <Kevin L™> Aurum will have some short intervals.
11:54:21 <Betty> buy that, Kevin
11:54:37 <Kevin L™> Aurum likes Betty
11:54:42 <Eric> Yellowstone Live, right here, with Zero Ads :-D
11:55:05 <Dave from B™> That's right and we even throw in real accurate facts once in awhile
11:55:08 <Eric> and you don't even have to subscribe to the channel.
11:55:13 <Betty> Aurums on cam = many, Aurums live = zero
11:55:24 <Eric> and a few totally inaccurate ones for fun!
11:55:39 <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
11:55:58 <Mike J> happy gazing all.
11:56:17 <Eric> I heard Yellowstone was named after the color of the Grand Canyon....Go
11:56:36 <Dave from B™> @#$%@#$%^#$
11:56:37 <Dave from B™> @#$%#$%^$#
11:56:43 <Eric> Please send video of yourself going ballistic :-P
11:56:48 <Dave from B™> hahaha
11:57:12 <Eric> I should add that fact to the info panel on the right!
11:57:19 <Betty> lol
11:57:32 <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
11:57:59 <Dave from B™> Originally called "Roche Jaune" French for Yellow rock
11:58:11 <Dave from B™> So, more than likely fur traders
11:58:15 <Eric> Ohh, that would be a pretty name for the park.
11:58:51 <Betty> Lion
11:58:54 <Kevin L™> Beats Grand Tetons
12:02:15 <Dave from B™> That is french as well
12:02:18 <ynpvisitor27> they said it was Yellowstone because of the canyon in Yellowstone though, not the Grand Canyon, right?
12:02:34 <Dave from B™> Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, yes
12:03:42 <ynpvisitor27> sounds like the show is somewhat of an advertisement for places outside the park
12:07:56 <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"
12:08:58 <Dave from B™> That is Poppycock, Jake
12:09:18 <Eric> I read that Jake, it's a totally interesting story.
12:09:51 <lc> just back from walk, checking the log. wondering how much is fact and how much is bs.
12:10:19 <lc> my problem I don't know the difference.
12:10:41 <Dave from B™> That is the problem with society these days...we're all confused.
12:10:44 <Eric> Always trust Jake, he would never tell a lie.
12:11:03 <Dave from B™> FYI, no thermal feature can be named after a person
12:11:14 <Dave from B™> Mountains, Lakes...now that's okay
12:11:23 <lc> now I don't kow if I can trust you, Eric.
12:11:34 <Eric> good call lc :-D
12:12:58 <Dave from B™> now, Daisy might be an exception to that rule
12:13:00 <Eric> I might not even be Eric!
12:18:04 <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)
12:21:44 <ynpvisitor27> he is on his way home today
12:41:49 <lc> Eric, do you have time to answer a tech question on PM?
13:29:05 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:29:25 <Kevin L™> No kidding
13:29:32 <Betty> nope
13:30:05 <Kevin L™> Need the large economy sized bottle of NoDoz® today.
13:31:04 <Betty> my streaming is so choppy today, so I cannot even see that nothing happens
13:32:45 <Betty> too bad they hide everything today
13:34:05 <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.
13:34:35 <Kevin L™> Finally seems to be working now. I HATE windows 10.
13:38:05 <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
13:39:10 <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
13:39:51 <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.
14:08:34 <Kevin L™> Will Daisy go before or during OF?
14:10:33 <Dave from B™> Yes
14:11:15 <Dave from B™> Darn...wrong again
14:21:39 <ynpvisitor91> how long does it take to get to Artemisia?
14:22:04 <Jake> practice practice practice!
14:22:06 <ynpvisitor91> is it faster to come from the north?
14:22:11 <Dave from B™> From Lower Hams?
14:22:12 <Jake> oh, wrong punchline
14:22:38 <Dave from B™> Yes, it is faster from Biscuit
14:22:42 <Jake> if you have a bike, it is faster to bike to Morning Glory and walk
14:22:54 <Jake> if you have a car, it's faster to drive to Biscuit Basin and walk
14:23:20 <Kevin L™> If you are young it is a lot faster. Nasty hill between the geyser and Morning Glory Pool.
14:23:47 <Jake> ah yes, your mileage may vary ;)
14:24:00 <Jake> it also uphill from Biscuit but more gradual
14:24:20 <Kevin L™> Took me almost as much time getting up the hill as getting to the hill.
14:24:25 <Eric> Great place to take a nap mid morning :-D
14:24:44 <ynpvisitor91> 20 minutes?
14:24:52 <Kevin L™> It has an automatic wake up when it goes.
14:25:10 <Eric> Exactly Kevin, you get rocked awake..
14:25:24 <Kevin L™> It is about 2 miles from Lower Hamms.
14:25:31 <Dave from B™> I bet it is only a 10-15 minute walk from Biscuit
14:25:51 <Jake> less than 15 minute walk from Biscuit
14:26:02 <ynpvisitor91> so another mile from Morning Glory?
14:26:04 <Jake> difficulties include crossing the road which could add minutes
14:26:37 <Kevin L™> You may have to deal with a muddy path from Biscuit so wear your mud shoes.
14:26:39 <ynpvisitor8> It's a beautiful walk from Morning Glory, worth it!
14:27:02 <Dave from B™> It's less than a half mile from Morning Glory
14:27:22 <Kevin L™> But a rise of about 300 feet!
14:27:24 <Eric> Yep, both sides are really nice
14:28:09 <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
14:29:02 <Eric> I was tired after that route...
14:29:20 <Dave from B™> Sounds like a "Family Circle" route
14:29:38 <Jake> yeah, a "300 foot rise" like OF hits 300 feet
14:30:28 <ynpvisitor91> from Lower Hams, no bike, 25 min?
14:31:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:31:20 <Dave from B™> I would say more like 30
14:34:05 <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"
14:34:58 <Dave from B™> With no bike, I put on 6-12 miles a day at UGB
14:36:23 <Jake> I've overheard so many app and fitbit conversations in the UGB about how this is the most steps they've ever done
14:36:26 <ynpvisitor91> I told them they needed 3 days at OF to see it all, and they want to do 'a few hours'
14:38:37 <Jake> "see it all" could mean a lot of things
14:38:49 <Jake> if they're mobile, they could walk past everything in the course of a day
14:38:54 <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?
14:39:33 <lc> I made it from Grotto to the cabin in 25 min.
14:39:43 <Kevin L™> My brother and I put on 37 miles in 4 days according to my fitbit.
14:40:20 <ynpvisitor79> :p
14:40:25 <Kevin L™> Of course the fitbit also says I have been asleep for the past 2 hours.
14:40:56 <ynpvisitor79> it is most likely correct
14:41:19 <Kevin L™> It always says I am asleep in church.
14:41:33 <Dave from B™> Kevin, what parts of your body have you moved in the last 2 hours?
14:41:36 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Joe
14:41:44 <Joe´> Hi DG
14:41:55 <Dave from B™> Hi Joe
14:42:14 <Kevin L™> Mostly hands Dave
14:42:16 <Joe´> Hello Dave and Kevin
14:43:32 <Kevin L™> Good afternoon
14:43:50 <Betty> hi Joe
14:44:49 <Betty> I walk more miles a day in UGB that in a whole week here - single way
14:45:04 <Betty> that = than
14:45:09 <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
14:45:30 <Dave from B™> Joe, that's a tough one
14:45:41 <Betty> yeah
14:46:01 <Joe´> Yes, but it was fun, alas never again
14:46:14 <Betty> Monument is hard too
14:46:49 <Betty> LC ie
14:47:10 <lc> did UTT 8 or 10 years ago.
14:47:15 <ynpvisitor91> is it 8 miles from UGB to Great Fountain? Still trying to explain things
14:47:40 <Kevin L™> Monument is OK the first half then kills you.
14:47:43 <Dave from B™> Sounds right
14:48:05 <Betty> Jake, where is Brown spouters, and why are they in the list of common UGB geysers?
14:49:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
14:49:06 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:49:07 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:49:08 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:49:23 <Dave from B™> woohoo
14:49:28 <Eric> nice
14:49:29 <Betty> nice I´m lagged and wait
14:49:29 <Kevin L™> Two in a day!
14:49:35 <Dave from B™> Hi GRAHAM
14:49:41 <Betty> FUN
14:49:48 <Eric> powerful looking aurum
14:50:07 <Kevin L™> That was fun!
14:50:29 <Kevin L™> Was not expecting that!
14:50:40 <Betty> cool
14:50:43 <Joe´> they just keep getting better
14:50:56 <GO GIANT> guess I should have joined as GO AURUM
14:51:34 <lc> anybody get duration on that?
14:51:39 <GO GIANT> i see barbara reported boiling in Morning this morning
14:51:49 <GO GIANT> thats all we need, another big geyser to get going!
14:52:16 <Kevin L™> Think it was about 2m lc
14:52:35 <GO GIANT> so its 14 13 10 0 F&M Steamboat Giant Morning
14:52:47 <lc> seemed longer than normal to me.
14:53:25 <Dave from B™> I feel Giant will pass Steamboat at some time this year
14:53:38 <Dave from B™> lc, that was a nice one
14:53:54 <lc> I thought so.
14:53:57 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
14:54:07 <GO GIANT> yeah will be interesting to see if STeamboat stays in the 14 day range or is more variable
14:54:33 <GO GIANT> Giant could shorten up.....
14:54:59 <ynpvisitor78> Wait, what? Morning again?
14:55:03 <GO GIANT> hopefully F&M stay on short intervals
14:55:46 <GO GIANT> Dave - I rrive on Sep 15, see you at Giant or F&M
14:56:03 <GO GIANT> o Morning
14:56:22 <GO GIANT> but it boiled
14:56:56 <GO GIANT> i dont think Ftn is having long intervals, but there are very few reports recently ... its not getting any love
14:57:05 <Dave from B™> Nice, Graham...we''ll be around in the evening/next morning
14:57:25 <Dave from B™> Is Maurenn mad at Fountain?:D
14:57:30 <GO GIANT> i will be down mid afternoon, flying into BZN
14:57:46 <GO GIANT> no, shes in lov with GF
14:58:08 <lc> parking may be a problem
14:58:19 <Joe´> Aurum was 14:49:04 to 14:50:04 exactly 1min
14:58:39 <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.
14:58:55 <lc> I thought it was longer. thanks.
14:58:56 <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
14:59:11 <ynpvisitor999®> how long does it take for Aurum to appear above Giantess' shoulder?
14:59:29 <lc> not long.
14:59:43 <Dave from B™> Jake, you want to give a good answer for that one?
14:59:53 <GO GIANT> Barb didnt say how big the boil was today
15:00:13 <Betty> you are there, Dave? I arrive the 19th
15:00:28 <GO GIANT> Aurum is usually 70s whenever i have timed it, so maybe 5s?
15:00:45 <Dave from B™> Sorry, I leave the 16th and then turn around and take Parker to Bellingham on the 18th
15:00:51 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
15:00:53 <Dave from B™> oops 19th
15:00:56 <Betty> ah, bummer
15:00:57 <ynpvisitor78> Sorry, misread - I saw a post that said "2m" and though it referred to Morning. My mistake.
15:01:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll change it to 1449
15:02:12 <GO GIANT> we can split night-time Giant watches Betty
15:02:36 <Betty> I doubt I do any night watches
15:05:43 <Dave from B™> My wife had to let the dog out at 3 this morning. She said Mars was incredible
15:06:30 <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
15:07:01 <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.
15:07:22 <Dave from B™> Yep. We saw all 4 last night around 1000
15:07:46 <ynpvisitor91> staying at OF for your hiking trip, Dave from B™?
15:09:29 <Dave from B™> 2 nights at Lake Lodge cabins and 1 at OFI Old House
15:10:23 <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
15:10:32 <GO GIANT> nice, maybe yo will be ot all night if the heating is banging the pipes. have they fixed that now?
15:11:16 <GO GIANT> my u key must not be working
15:15:18 <Dave from B™> I've never had trouble sleeping at OFI Old House. Bottle of wine in the mezzanine usually fixes any problems
15:15:39 <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
15:16:28 <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
15:18:32 <ynpvisitor14> here is this afternoon AURUM you decide the time https://youtu.be/Cui8ET7uuEM
15:20:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1449:00 based on eruptive steam appearing clearly at that time
15:21:04 <Kevin L™> Looks like it to me too.
15:21:24 <Dave from B™> Not a fond memory, Graham
15:21:33 <ynpvisitor999®> and pretty much instantly above the geyserite shoulder
15:21:42 <Joe´> Your eyes are way better than mine, :) thats why I posted it
15:22:23 <Betty> headed out, night all
15:22:31 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
15:22:44 <Joe´> Night Betty
15:22:49 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
15:22:55 <Kevin L™> The in basin times seem to be the same as the wc times on Aurum. Daisy shows up later.
15:23:02 <Kevin L™> Night Betty
16:53:38 <Kevin L™> Daisy ie
16:57:48 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
16:58:32 <GO GIANT> looks like Micah had fun at Lone Star
16:59:51 <Kevin L™> Great place for lunch. Are the wild strawberries and raspberries ripe?
17:00:14 <Dave from B™> Isn't Lone star too tall for Micah's liking?:)
17:00:38 <Dave from B™> I feel bad that Mioah hasn't seen Steamboat yet
17:00:46 <GO GIANT> I think he liked Giant .... so "no"
17:01:02 <GO GIANT> hopefully you both will get to see it
17:01:29 <Kevin L™> I think he would enjoy a broken waterline.
17:12:34 <Kevin L™> OF

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