04:46:56 <ynpvisitor109> score is 14 13 11 F&M Steamboat Giant unless any were missed
04:50:18 <Jimbo Arsenic> Hi all
04:50:31 <Jimbo Arsenic> 999, are the Perseids captures online anywhere?
04:52:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I get them from the overnight captures of GOSA
04:53:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 0647 ns min
04:53:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Link*
04:54:07 <ynpvisitor999®> speaking of the overnight captures, time to check them
04:59:42 <Jimbo Arsenic> OK, thanks
05:36:04 <Dave from B™> Now, it is F&M's turn
05:36:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Mike and Dave
05:37:41 <ynpvisitor105> Another Giant in the dark...
05:37:45 <Mike J> Morning 999
05:38:13 <Mike J> I've never thought about how many of our comments would make great SF or Fantasy novels - "Another Giant in the Dark"
05:38:35 <ynpvisitor105> Ha
05:47:32 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
06:06:07 <ynpvisitor999®> glad to see Bulger's Hole is still active
06:06:39 <Jimbo Arsenic> I'm not sure if I want to read that novel
06:07:13 <Mike J> "Another Giant in the Dark" or "Badger's Hole is Still Active"?
06:07:40 <Jimbo Arsenic> The full title would be "I'm Glad to See Bulger's Hole is Still Active"
06:08:10 <Mike J> sheesh. Must really be morning. I seriously thought the comment was about "badger's hole"
06:08:14 <Mike J> Cofeeeeeeeeeeee
06:09:07 <Jimbo Arsenic> Badger's Hole doesn't sound as ominous as Bulger's Hole
06:20:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie
06:36:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Grabd
06:36:15 <ynpvisitor999®> can't type
06:36:35 <Mike J> Grabd must be right next to badger's hole
06:36:55 <Jimbo Arsenic> Steamy start
06:37:38 <Jimbo Arsenic> Isn't Grabd a right wing from Slovakia with a great wrist shot?
06:38:09 <Mike J> That's right. Coyotes traded him to the Knights this summer
06:38:51 <Jimbo Arsenic> :thumbsup:
06:40:05 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
06:40:30 <Dave from B™> Back again. Sat Night power outage created havoc with my business...2 compressors wouldn't restart afterwards and it fried one of my surge protector
06:41:47 <ynpvisitor999®> that doesn't sound good
06:43:39 <Dave from B™> Blew a fuse on one and fried wires on the other. unusual Extreme heat is hard on the power grid
06:46:39 <ynpvisitor999®> morning sparekitty
06:49:41 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
06:49:52 <Kevin L™> Morning
06:50:16 <Kevin L™> Did you get the compressors restarted Dave?
06:50:35 <sparekitty> hola everyone! happy monday.
06:52:42 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin, Had to have someone come in on a Sunday to get them going
06:53:11 <Kevin L™> So they didn't have to be replaced then?
06:54:48 <Dave from B™> Nope. I've been in communication with my guy to prevent this in the futre and we are installing phase monitos on all compressors this week
06:55:04 <Eric (5)> Morning
06:55:35 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
06:56:20 <Kevin L™> Sounds good Dave. That could have been really ugly. Must have had a lightning strike nearby.
06:56:40 <Eric (5)> So Giant went before F&M...interesting
06:57:00 <ynpvisitor81> Eric, how long are you staying in the park this time?
06:57:07 <Eric (5)> 9 days again
06:57:35 <Eric (5)> Trying to get all of my sun protection gear in order :-D
06:59:21 <ynpvisitor81> Nine days, we may just cross paths this time :-)
06:59:48 <Kevin L™> Steamboat will be waiting for you as long as Dave doesn't try for it.
06:59:56 <Eric (5)> Nice..I will look for the number 81 on your back :-P
07:00:16 <ynpvisitor81> :)
07:01:01 <ynpvisitor81> Look fou the name Joe on my jersy
07:01:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
07:01:20 <Kevin L™> Depression
07:01:30 <Kevin L™> Looks big too
07:02:01 <ynpvisitor81> for * jersey*
07:02:45 <Eric (5)> Nice...will be good to meet you.
07:03:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:04:59 <ynpvisitor999®> another Link minor
07:05:22 <ynpvisitor11> where is link geyser?
07:07:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I think behind F&M from webcam perspective
07:07:48 <Dave from B™> is must be connected to is near F&M, I beleive
07:08:07 <Kevin L™> It is across the river from F&M.
07:08:11 <Dave from B™> It is to the left before you cross the F&M bridge
07:09:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if Bill put a logger on it when he redistributed loggers last Friday
07:10:17 <ynpvisitor81> BH after 10 :(
07:11:51 <ynpvisitor116>
07:12:23 <Kevin L™> Speaking of lightning strikes, it looks like one took out the cameras at the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad. Pretty off thing, the bolt hit the rail and nailed a bunch of equipment.
07:17:31 <ynpvisitor46> it is the "link" in Chain Lakes
07:25:41 <ynpvisitor46> I've never seen Link - but have seen the outwash from it - very cool to see sinter gravels washed up onto the asphalt!
07:31:14 <Eric (5)> Link geyser:,-110.8421536,3a,60y,259.33h,94.46t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s34s3KAmlSV_2ofOBqFmXMg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
07:31:35 <Eric (5)> You can zoom out to see the location in reference to other geysers on the map.
08:02:02 <Kevin L™> Looks like the Giant people are now at Grand
08:21:15 <Eric (5)> There are giant people at grand?
08:22:42 <Dave from B™> You're not nice Kevin:D
08:23:41 <Kevin L™> Hey, I was a construction inspector. I am NOT supposed to be nice!
08:25:04 <ynpvisitor46> I didn't get it either. :P :P
08:30:40 <Kevin L™> Looks like the BH intervals are getting longer for Eric's visit.
08:39:21 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie

08:56:27 <ge (working)> :D
08:56:47 <Mike J> Perfect time to walk back in the room
08:57:11 <ynpvisitor42> It is 3 hours early. But I bet it is lunch time for someone.
08:59:36 <Kevin L™> Anytime is lunchtime!
09:00:46 <ynpvisitor42> You sound like my dog
09:02:29 <ynpvisitor42> Nothing to see here, keep walking!
09:02:54 <ynpvisitor116> cute little squirter
09:04:39 <ynpvisitor42> One would think by now they would understand f people gather there is something to see, or good to eat. They probably eat at mc D's.
09:04:51 <ynpvisitor42> So would not understand the last part.
09:05:26 <ynpvisitor1> Lots of people today
09:07:07 <Kitt> yay Beehive
09:07:08 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
09:07:24 <ynpvisitor42> Waiting, waiting, waiting....
09:07:37 <ynpvisitor42> weeee
09:08:46 <Kitt> Just got back from errands
09:09:20 <Kevin L™> Good timing
09:11:19 <ge (working)> Is that splashing in front of BH, or just the light?
09:12:04 <ge (working)> it's the light--sorry
09:12:41 <Kevin L™> That was fun.
09:12:50 <ynpvisitor42> Nothing to see here, move along.
09:13:14 <ynpvisitor42> Enjoy a long Aurum series?:lol:
09:14:02 <Kevin L™> Aurum is hiding this month
09:15:55 <Betty> bah, missed it
09:15:57 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:15:57 <Dave from B™> Dod I miss anything:(
09:16:11 <Betty> me too Dave
09:16:18 <Betty> hi DG
09:21:01 <ynpvisitor999®> another Link, 1111ns for 1s
09:21:46 <Dave from B™> Eric, can you pm me. please. My computer hates me
09:34:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:34:51 <Betty> yeah, a geyser
09:35:20 <Kevin L™> How is your weather Betty?
09:35:33 <Betty> cool
09:35:48 <Kevin L™> Nice.
09:35:55 <Betty> 68 here
09:54:12 <Eric> I cannot PM you Dave, this chat sucks.
09:55:03 <Dave from B™> haha. Thanks, you must have added a few other room types to my search. I appreciate it
09:55:37 <Eric> I did, before I kicked it off
09:55:38 <Dave from B™> Nice to see Giant should be ready for your visit now
09:55:47 <Eric> Hopefully they are hitting the mark?
09:56:23 <ynpvisitor999®> about time for Oblong
09:56:56 <Eric> Yep, it would seem to align to when I will be there, now lets hope I have the smarts to get it :-D
09:57:23 <Eric> Right you are DG
09:57:39 <Eric> I bet you a bunch of gazers are sitting there waiting.
09:58:52 <Dave from B™> Eric, I just missed a room with 2 beds...that is what we are jhoping to reserve. I've got me email open and I'm ready:)
10:03:13 <Eric> excellent, hope you get one :-D
10:26:13 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Terry
10:54:28 <Larry in Denver> Afternoon all
10:54:41 <Kevin L™> hi
10:54:43 <Betty> hi Larry
10:55:29 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Larry
10:56:41 <Larry in Denver> I'm going to miss seeing the park in September since I went in June this year. Going to the east coast instead - just not quite the same!
11:01:49 <Dave from B™> That's not good news Larry
11:03:39 <Larry in Denver> It will feel strange after so many fall visits in a row. But at least I saw F&M with near misses on Giant and Steamboat in June. Also got to meet many people I only knew from their Internet posts so that was nice.
11:17:11 <Eric> Hi Larry, Bummed I missed you in June.
11:19:47 <Larry in Denver> Yes, too bad we had such a near-miss. I hope you score the gazer trifecta on your next visit
11:42:13 <Betty> OF
11:56:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:28:55 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
12:31:01 <ynpvisitor999®> a nice one
12:35:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
12:35:22 <Kevin L™> Lion
12:37:26 <Kevin L™> wind is annoying today
12:40:11 <Dave from B™> Im getting a FLASH: rtmpconnectfailure message...anoyone else?
12:40:38 <ynpvisitor999®> not here
12:40:39 <Kevin L™> Mine is streaming
12:41:09 <Kevin L™> Did your surge toast your computer?
12:42:32 <Dave from B™> Mine frozen during Lion ini
12:42:41 <Dave from B™> there we go
12:43:27 <Dave from B™> and froze again...gRGRGRGRGRGRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
12:45:19 <Dave from B™> Kevin, did they ever figure out what the #13 car ran over?
12:46:14 <Kevin L™> I am not sure but it really messed him up.
12:46:47 <Kevin L™> Here is what happened to the Cumbres & Toltec cams with their lightning strike:
12:46:49 <Kevin L™> -The lightening strike that caused this mess was visually observed hitting near the Scale Track and traveling up the rails past the Depot. -The Depot office lost 2 printers, a clock, and the router provided by the ISP (which was replaced). -The Friends lost our primary firewall. Fortunately our back-up was offline and is now in production and working fine. -Joe tested both our primary and back-up
12:46:58 <ynpvisitor999®> GRan
12:46:59 <ynpvisitor999®> d
12:47:11 <ynpvisitor999®> still can't type
12:48:40 <Kevin L™> cables between the firewall and the wireless node. Neither is working. -The node is powered on, but we have no connection to it which leads me to believe it is toast. -So, despite a couple of layers of surge protection on our power and data links, the surge was apparently strong enough to blow up the firewall and the wireless node.
12:49:36 <Kevin L™> That ran about a quarter mile down the rails.
12:49:37 <ynpvisitor999®> ouch
12:49:43 <Dave from B™> Sounds like fun.
12:51:27 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see how long it is down.
12:51:51 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope not a month like this cam
12:51:55 <GO GIANT & F&M> well i see one finally erupted
12:52:42 <Dave from B™> What is your name after it erupts in the next 24 hours?
12:53:23 <GO F&M> maybe GO LINK
12:53:50 <GO F&M> Eric doesnt want me to use GO STEAMBOAT ... yet
12:54:44 <GO F&M> sorry Jim didnt get Giant but glad for the crew there, Micah got his first Normal Function
12:56:03 <GO F&M> i see we had one set of 5 Grand eruptions in 24h but it just missed it this time
12:57:05 <Larry in Denver> Nice show from Grand
12:57:34 <Kevin L™> Looks like a 1b
12:57:49 <GO F&M> wow i see we have all the eruptions in the last 100, so grand stats have no odd ones
12:58:13 <GO F&M> Min 5h 29m Max 7h 46m Mean 6h 12m Median 6h 8m
12:58:23 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, I may or may not have some bad news for Eric. It seems another Norris cycle has started if I have to believe the Porkchop logger. The last two SBs occurred just before cycle end or at the beginning of a new cycle
12:58:24 <GO F&M> didnt paste well :(
12:58:55 <Dave from B™> 7:46 is a low maximum interval for last 100
12:58:59 <GO F&M> so how long is the cycle DG?
12:59:44 <GO F&M> median 6h8m is nice, half in the first 40m
13:00:00 <ynpvisitor999®> this cycle had a duration of ~9 days, last one ~13½d and the one before ~7d
13:00:02 <GO F&M> uhoh Eric stopped the countdown, did he cancel his trip?
13:00:23 <GO F&M> Eric will still be there
13:00:46 <GO F&M> but odd that the geyser didnt eruopt. will be interesting to hear how the vents are progressing today
13:01:54 <GO F&M> VEC Grand prediction is very early
13:08:28 <Eric> Afternoon Graham
13:08:29 <Dave from B™> Is Link connected to F&M at all?
13:09:03 <Eric> Will have to see what F&M is doing when I arrive, otherwise the family gets to spend a few days at Norris with me :-D
13:10:05 <Dave from B™> Tell them to bring a BIG book
13:10:19 <Dave from B™> and a little umbrella
13:10:26 <Eric> Also I was wondering if there are other moderately sized geysers that people usually overlook in the other basins.
13:10:48 <GO F&M> just by the river Dave
13:10:50 <Dave from B™> You've seen Whirligig and Vixwn, Eric?
13:10:56 <Eric> Yep
13:11:10 <Eric> Link got me thinking about it...
13:11:32 <Kevin L™> Eric, I have a camcorder that uses mini DV tapes and downloads via IEEE firewire. Can I get a cable and down load that through a USB port?
13:11:44 <GO F&M> the main way to see Link minors is to sit at F&M and listen to the rush of water down the runoff channel
13:12:33 <GO F&M> black sand and biscuit deserve some time Eric
13:12:46 <Eric> You need a firewire port of some type Kevin...I am not sure about firewire to USB
13:12:58 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
13:13:04 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:13:09 <GO F&M> a few interesting small features in the cascade group, taking the Daisy trail up a bit from the road
13:13:33 <GO F&M> have you watched atomizer and Artemisia?
13:13:40 <Eric> Cool...I spent an afternoon at biscuit last time and loved it.
13:13:55 <Eric> Yep, caught atomizer major and minors with Arty start
13:13:55 <Kevin L™> Thanks. Don't know if this unit has one. I suppose I could get a card to do that. Would they make one that does that and analog also?
13:13:58 <GO F&M> pink cone group, firehole lake features
13:14:53 <Dave from B™> Lone Star?
13:15:01 <Eric> Got that group with an awesome group of gazers on my last trip, but I will be back there for GF and the Pink Cone group
13:15:18 <Eric> Yep, did that early in the spring too, 3 or 4 minors and a major :-D
13:15:22 <Kevin L™> Pink Cone isone of my favorites.
13:15:28 <Dave from B™> I can't figure out why I'm not a big fan of GF
13:15:53 <GO F&M> and of course theres always Aurum :)
13:15:56 <Eric> Surrounded by road maybe dave
13:16:20 <ynpvisitor116> need to see a good GF
13:16:38 <Dave from B™> I love the view from GF
13:16:38 <Eric> I totally agree with 116, a good GF is so impressive
13:16:55 <Kevin L™> You can watch a bunch of so so GF eruption before you see a good one.
13:17:34 <Eric> I really love fountain too, you are so close to such an awesome, powerful geyser
13:18:16 <Larry in Denver> Also Botryoildal while you are waiting for GF
13:18:33 <Eric> True, Larry
13:18:52 <Larry in Denver> And for some reason I like Cliff and East Mustard
13:19:31 <Dave from B™> Eric, I really love the Fountain group. I have to be right in front of are so close!
13:19:48 <Larry in Denver> Maybe you can spark Echinus back too
13:21:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Echinus would be nice
13:23:49 <Eric> Well, I was not planning on spending time at norris this trip :-|
13:24:22 <ynpvisitor46> sure...
13:24:29 <Dave from B™> Only going there if F&M and Giant are not due?
13:24:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Fair enough. I bet Hotel Steamboat is overbooked anyway :D
13:25:06 <Eric> Yep, I really want an F&M and/or Giant
13:25:18 <ynpvisitor46> you can have the UGB all to yourself some days..
13:25:51 <Eric> Haha...I did that in the spring, the day before I left, everyone was camped at norris
13:27:02 <Larry in Denver> It's always especially rewarding when you have camped out several times with no reward and then BOOM! you get lucky. Keeping your ear to the radio is essential.
13:30:17 <Eric> Yep, and knowing who to listen to is helpful as well :-D
13:30:44 <Larry in Denver> Filter out the SC calls?
13:30:48 <Eric> So much knowledge from awesome gazers out there
13:31:07 <Eric> Haha...who doesn't want to know when SC is erupting?
13:31:16 <ynpvisitor999®> HK
13:31:21 <Eric> at 2am :-P
13:31:59 <ynpvisitor27> did someone really call SC at 2 in the morning?
13:32:11 <GO F&M> recently theres a lot more logging times and less calling them
13:32:50 <GO F&M> which is good since mpst gazers have smartyphones
13:32:53 <Larry in Denver> Eric did you meet Rocco last time?
13:33:08 <Eric> No 27, i was joking...that would be pretty awful to get woken up by that!
13:33:21 <Eric> Yes, met Rocco and hung out with Clark some too
13:33:57 <Larry in Denver> Nice. Tell them I said hello if you see either one on this trip
13:34:04 <ynpvisitor27> Rocco's name is not on any Giant eruptions...wonder if he gave up on it
13:34:08 <Eric> Will do
13:34:16 <GO F&M> looks like F&M are being unfriendly to Cynthia, nothing happening for her
13:34:32 <ynpvisitor27> Clark won't be there again until Sept
13:34:56 <Larry in Denver> Yes, he is a Memorial Day/Labor Day kind of guy.
13:35:22 <GO F&M> he is retired now, so should have more time ... haha
13:35:32 <Eric> I would rather have done september, but family logistics is complex.
13:35:35 <ynpvisitor27> he did come one extra time trying for SB
13:36:09 <GO F&M> i bet the labor day crowd there will be busy if its ready ... its when the most gazers are in the park i think
13:36:10 <ynpvisitor27> F & M is perhaps waiting for its 8 day window...?
13:36:13 <Larry in Denver> Eric - since the cam from Hawaii has been broken since the 31st have you thought about changing that picture?
13:36:34 <Larry in Denver> ... to a different camera?
13:36:45 <GO F&M> and the fissure has quit too
13:36:52 <Eric> Yes, I have been meaning to do it...just time :-(
13:37:53 <Eric> Any suggestions, I hate the drive into the park static cam, it's out of focus and doesn't seem to be very useful
13:38:00 <Dave from B™> Eric, can you replace it with a shot of you working at your desk?
13:38:08 <Eric> Working?
13:38:18 <Dave from B™> Well, pretending
13:38:22 <ynpvisitor116> teton cam?
13:38:22 <Eric> Ohh, ok
13:38:36 <Larry in Denver> Fish cam in Billings?
13:38:58 <Eric> Any good West Yellowstone webcams?
13:39:12 <Eric> I think that weather really drives what is happening in the basin, so might be useful
13:40:22 <Dave from B™> haha Larry
13:41:39 <Larry in Denver> How about the Gardiner cam?
13:45:26 <Kevin L™> Here is one if you want to keep the lights on:
13:46:38 <Eric> Haha...i went with Larry's suggestion
13:47:13 <Eric> The image should auto update to the yellowstone river in gardiner
13:47:16 <Larry in Denver> Sweet!!!
13:47:28 <Larry in Denver> Nice framing to see the weather
13:47:41 <Kevin L™> I thought that bulb is one from the Lodge Cabins.
13:47:47 <Eric> Yes, much better than the stuck static image
13:48:18 <Eric> From a webcam that is thousands of miles from yellowstone.
13:49:15 <Larry in Denver> Yes but while it was going it was one of the most exciting volcanic shows on earth. I still watch the daily USGS photo and video updates each day
13:49:20 <Eric> I think west yellowstone needs an IT person...all of their webcams seemed dead
13:49:41 <Eric> Totally agree Larry, it was addicting...
13:49:57 <GO F&M> how about just removing it and not replacing it ...... shocking i know
13:50:21 <Larry in Denver> You don't like Gardiner?
13:50:25 <Kevin L™> Probably chamber of commerce shutting them down so you can't see what it really looks like.
13:50:30 <GO F&M> what did you do with all the geysers today Kevin, used them all up?
13:50:34 <Eric> only having 8 images would really screw up the symmetry of the 3x3 grid
13:50:47 <Kevin L™> Saving them for you
13:51:12 <GO F&M> you took BH Castle and Grand off the table
13:51:23 <Larry in Denver> The Cooke City cams are fun in the winter
13:51:24 <GO F&M> i see the VEC prediction has been changed
13:52:00 <Kevin L™> Steamboat notes posted.
13:52:01 <Eric> I would love to have Lower hams put a static webcam up on the back corner of their building...toward mugwump
13:53:12 <Eric> lion
13:53:16 <GO F&M> lion
13:53:26 <GO F&M> now watch it stop at 2 in the series ... haha
13:53:42 <GO F&M> sounds like Steamboat is progressing per Udo
13:54:36 <GO F&M> when does Dave arrive there?
13:55:00 <Dave from B™> :P
13:55:20 <GO F&M> i see there was an event cycle
13:56:05 <GO F&M> you have to try again Dave
13:58:07 <Dave from B™> You do remember that I'm the only gazer that describes it as being in prison?
13:59:13 <ynpvisitor46> got a ynp road text to use headlighyts on 191 - sounds smoky over there
13:59:30 <GO F&M> theres a reason we have a Giant Cage
13:59:50 <ynpvisitor46> you chose that prisonDave from B™, right?
13:59:53 <Eric> Yes, I am getting a little worried about smoke now :-(
14:01:11 <Larry in Denver> Not Billings, but...
14:01:11 <Dave from B™> I like least you know it's only chance of erupting is during a GHP or right after. With Steamboat you never know when it will happen
14:02:07 <GO F&M> yeah they are both tough, steamboat more so as theres nowhere to go for food or shower
14:02:11 <Dave from B™> Yep...I was just thinking August is probably the worst time between April and October to visit any Northern Rockies area
14:03:00 <Kevin L™> Go Aurum
14:13:19 <Dave from B™> Time to head to the fair...have to go to the bank and take out a loan first. Have a great evening everyone!
14:13:49 <ynpvisitor999®> same to you, Dave
14:13:59 <Larry in Denver> Enjoy the fair!
14:14:02 <GO F&M> night Dave, dont forget to buy some Steamboat credits
14:14:35 <Eric> Have fun should sponsor the fair and then you could go for free!
14:14:56 <Dave from B™> If I will the lottery at the fair...I will go back to "prison" until I see it
14:15:04 <Dave from B™> will = win
14:15:29 <Eric> With about a million other losers in that mix :-P
14:15:56 <Kevin L™> That was a battery Ty hit Dave.
14:28:03 <ynpvisitor999®> July was Yellowstone's second-busiest month on record
14:30:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:33:33 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
14:36:34 <Larry in Denver> Um, unless I'm reading the numbers wrong, this was not the second busiest July on record.
14:37:47 <Larry in Denver> (July is always the busiest month of visitation.)
14:39:19 <GO F&M> what was the july visitation?
14:39:39 <ynpvisitor999®> 962,404
14:39:52 <ynpvisitor999®> 940,563*
14:39:57 <ynpvisitor999®>
14:40:48 <Eric> So visitation is down from last year in July
14:41:24 <Eric> ohh, woops, I was looking at 2016/17
14:41:41 <ynpvisitor46> how about 2016?
14:42:16 <GO F&M> so its 5th highest if you belioeve the data
14:42:17 <Eric> ohh, actually July 2018 was less than 2016 or 2017
14:43:21 <ynpvisitor46> GOOD
14:43:34 <Larry in Denver> Higher numbers in 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2017
14:43:37 <GO F&M> Jan looks like a good time to go
14:46:39 <ynpvisitor7> August 2017 was a record though (for Aug). I wonder why it shifted last year?
14:48:24 <GO F&M> the eclipse
14:49:11 <ynpvisitor46> exactly
14:49:17 <ynpvisitor7> ah-- good point!
14:55:24 <Larry in Denver> Off to watch the always-depressing evening news. Enjoy your gazing!
15:00:43 <ynpvisitor81> Lion
15:05:58 <Eric> LC
15:16:51 <ynpvisitor1> Nice SB notes
15:21:20 <GO F&M> maybe Thu?
15:22:52 <ynpvisitor1> 191 closed because of Bacon Rind Fire
15:23:26 <ynpvisitor1> YTG may have a long drive home this evening.
15:23:33 <Kevin L™> You would think all that bacon would be done by now.
15:24:42 <ynpvisitor30> Need more prawns.
15:24:43 <ynpvisitor1> Unfortunately there is a lot to fry out there, jumping the road co
15:25:17 <ynpvisitor46> so is it crossing the road? or just bad visibliity
15:25:20 <ynpvisitor1> could be interesting, to see where it goes
15:25:45 <ynpvisitor30> Surprise, a fire they are letting burn, jumps the road?
15:25:55 <ynpvisitor1> It was very close to the road around mile marker 25 at noon
15:26:34 <ynpvisitor1> It is a tough fire to fight 30
15:27:21 <ynpvisitor1> Ennis will have a lot of traffic
15:28:41 <ynpvisitor30> I thought Inciweb said they are letting it burn.
15:29:07 <ynpvisitor46> ynpvisitor1, thanks for the info
15:31:09 <GO F&M> i haven't received my road closed text yet
15:38:26 <ynpvisitor30> Apparently it is an intermittent closure for smoke.
15:38:29 <ynpvisitor46> .
15:43:24 <ynpvisitor30> Well I see Aurum did not do a series. Good luck with Lion.
15:43:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion's done for
15:53:51 <ynpvisitor27> road still open, one lane traffic.
16:05:30 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching YNM, SC [s]and the treeline[/s]
16:06:07 <GO F&M> bye DG
16:17:35 <GO F&M> YTG posted Bacon Rind pics on FB and said the road was still open.
16:44:46 <Kevin L™> First day of school here. My wife said that a kid had a heat attack on the field during football practice.
16:45:26 <GO F&M> no fun
16:46:53 <Kevin L™> Not what you expect when you are a high school nurse.
16:59:15 <ynpvisitor2> Daisy
17:09:44 <Larry in Denver> Just thought I'd come back to say that the Yellowstone public affairs office got my email before they left for the day and corrected the July visitation press release:
17:13:25 <ynpvisitor75> Rain
17:35:17 <Kevin L™> Weather looks worse on static than streaming.
18:16:05 <GO F&M> goodnight, enjoy the colors
18:16:27 <Kevin L™> Good Knight
