05:01:13 <ynpvisitor61> Is Kitt back in YNP?
05:01:47 <ynpvisitor3> obviously
05:01:47 <ynpvisitor14> not yet I think
05:02:18 <ynpvisitor61> Note last night about SB
05:06:22 <ynpvisitor14> I guess she could not stay away :)
05:11:36 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone. Steamboat has a tremendous influence on people
06:00:42 <Dave from B™> Morning Mike J
06:09:06 <Mike J> Morning Dave
06:45:18 <ynpvisitor75> Daisy 0843 wc
06:48:18 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:49:13 <ynpvisitor999®> morning sparekitty
06:51:07 <sparekitty> hi! how's everything today??
06:51:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm doing great, you?
06:52:16 <sparekitty> hard to complain...i get to ride my bike to work and enjoy my job AND get to watch OF while working! life is good.
06:55:54 <Kent> Gunky air or gunky dome of both, Yuck!
06:56:55 <Dave from B™> both
06:57:04 <Dave from B™> Morning Kent. How was your trip?
06:58:14 <Kent> Very good. Too warm for Yellowstone. Xanterra cookout food sorta ok which is actually a high rating.
06:58:45 <Kent> I went with very low expectations
06:59:45 <Kent> Roughrider cabins at Roosevelt really are just garden sheds. Fun! Like the old days in the park.
07:01:08 <Dave from B™> Yep....and you are cold in the middle of the night when your fire goes out
07:02:31 <Kent> Too lazy for fire. I brought a sleeping bag in from my car. Have you been on the ride out to the cookout?
07:03:16 <Dave from B™> I have but it has been over 20 years
07:04:16 <Kent> I thought it was worth the cost for the line of BS put out by the wranglers. Mine, Shannon, could lie as well as Jim Bridger :)
07:05:20 <Dave from B™> Kent, have you read Lee W's book "Storytelling in YNP?"
07:08:19 <Kent> Yes, but not my favorite. I really enjoyed his Institute class on the same topic. It is amazing what that man knows.
07:15:53 <Dave from B™> I liked the conversations about quality of interpreting done by people before NPS took over. Many were like Jim Bridger
07:17:06 <Dave from B™> As I SLOWLY ease into a shorter work week, I'm finally getting a chance to read from my YNP collection. Reading Lee's book about Hugo Hoppe currently
07:19:54 <Dave from B™> 2 places I can discover BS....YNP interpreters and restaurant waiters when talking about seafood
07:20:45 <Kent> I am still not a fan of the quality of NPS interp. I think it is the nature of the beast. Most subjects are complicated and the average visitor has an attention span of about 8 seconds. They want short and sweet with no thought involved.
07:22:29 <Dave from B™> It is a challenge to educate in one sentence
07:23:08 <Kent> I don't think I have ever had seafood in the park. They can't keep yogurt fresh let alone tuna.
07:23:12 <Dave from B™> And, there is a LOT to learn for interpretive rangers. they need to know a lot about many different subjects
07:24:26 <Dave from B™> ok
07:24:40 <Dave from B™> oops. that went in the wrong place
07:25:16 <Kent> NPS and the Hallmark crowd should provide regular lectures for people who are actually interested in a subject. Quality of Institute classes going downhill. Lots of interps now rather than those doing the research.
07:27:30 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, if you remember the 0932 Lion eruption yesterday, it was a minor/medium with a duration of 2m01s
07:27:49 <ynpvisitor999®> (59s+1m02s)
07:29:06 <Dave from B™> Kent, I haven't taken an institute class in tears. My wife and I have talked about taking more since kids are out of the house soon. I'm sorry to hear about the quality. Have you taken any classes this year?
07:29:18 <Dave from B™> Thanks DG
07:30:26 <ynpvisitor97> Do you have to take the class in [b]teats[/b]?
07:30:35 <ynpvisitor97> Tears*
07:30:57 <Mike J> Wow, this got out of hand quickly
07:32:04 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie/ns/exact
07:32:14 <Kent> No, but thinking about plants. If you haven't, you do need to take something at the Buffalo Ranch in the winter. A unique experience.
07:34:58 <Dave from B™> 97, hasn't been a slip up like that in years
07:35:38 <Kent> Interps may do a great class, but there was something unique about a class from the person doing the research: Lee on history. Mark Haroldson who know as much about grizzlies as any man on earth. John King who knows every tree in the park by its rings.
07:35:50 <Dave from B™> We were thinking of taking the wildflower class again. I would love to take Mammal Tracking. Birding classes are fun too
07:36:46 <Dave from B™> Yep. I've had some great instructors teach there in the 90s
07:37:33 <Kent> Laters, gotta go plant a friend.
07:38:23 <Dave from B™> See ya Kent
07:38:30 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Kent
07:52:43 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
08:01:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
08:18:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
08:18:32 <Dave from B™> GRAND
08:19:24 <Kevin L™> Is that Grand?
08:20:13 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, not sure. Could be Economic too :P
08:20:38 <Kevin L™> I was hoping for Aurum
08:26:25 <ynpvisitor42> 8min
08:28:36 <ynpvisitor42> 2b
08:28:42 <Kevin L™> Nice!
08:28:53 <Kevin L™> Long pause.
08:29:07 <Dave from B™> woohoo
08:30:56 <ynpvisitor42> done
08:39:13 <ynpvisitor999®> webcam was tired again? It really needs more caffeine then
08:40:52 <ynpvisitor42> It saw its shadow, does that mean earily winter?
08:42:06 <ynpvisitor42> Aurum
08:42:08 <ynpvisitor42> .
08:42:09 <ynpvisitor42> .
08:42:10 <ynpvisitor42> .
08:42:12 <ynpvisitor42> .
08:42:32 <Kevin L™> :)
08:42:35 <ynpvisitor42> done
08:43:02 <ynpvisitor42> there it was Kevin
08:48:32 <Bill> Morning all
08:48:50 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
08:55:02 <Bill> Morning fishynp
08:55:21 <fishynp> good morning
08:56:19 <Bill> Are you coming back to YNP before winter?
08:59:34 <ynpvisitor14> here is the last Aurum if you missed it https://youtu.be/oLu1SAMR9sE
09:00:23 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
09:01:16 <ynpvisitor999®> SB had some Granding this morning, per 0957 note
09:01:43 <Kevin L™> Didn't miss it but worth seeing a 2nd time
09:03:47 <Bill> sad news :( fountain logger collected bad data and needs to be replaced
09:04:23 <ynpvisitor999®> ouch. Did it record -888°C for a long time?
09:05:16 <Bill> no. Bounced between -80 and 80 erratically.
09:05:38 <fishynp> @Bill, Yes. I will be back up starting on Aug. 27th for our annual seismic network maintenance.
09:05:54 <ynpvisitor999®> that's not good indeed, Bill :(
09:07:04 <Bill> Gotcha. I'll be gone until the 29th that week. Jeff hasn't mentioned anything, but let me know if you need a hand in the field.
09:07:37 <fishynp> I think we are covered but thanks.
09:08:57 <Bill> New data for Echinus and OF logger B: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HWMHC-olItRLow6F6df0byxuoRphRcuy
09:09:30 <Bill> Split Cone, OF logger A and Fountain were all putting out bad data and need to be replaced
09:11:04 <ynpvisitor999®> SC and OF_A may have been (indirectly) struck by lightning on 27 June 2017 @ 1406, or at least, seems the most likely explanation of why they were recording bad data
09:11:21 <ynpvisitor999®> as for Fountain, maybe something similar too
09:14:45 <ynpvisitor42> DDaisy
09:16:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
09:16:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill, how far is the NPS Echinus logger located from the USGS one?
09:19:09 <Bill> ooh.... 8 inches?
09:19:26 <Bill> I moved the NPS Echinus one
09:19:50 <ynpvisitor999®> so not far apart then
09:19:57 <Bill> before there was a USGS logger, a bluetooth logger and a microstation all right next to eachother in the Tantalus Creek
09:20:09 <Bill> I moved the microstation to be only in the Echinus outflow
09:20:22 <Bill> The bluetooth logger is still next to the USGS one in the creek
09:21:20 <ynpvisitor42> The hill leading to giantess looks strange
09:21:38 <ynpvisitor999®> based on the temperature trace I'd say they were further apart
09:22:11 <Bill> You'd think.
09:22:41 <ynpvisitor999®> especially because a USGS eruption spike registers 70°C+, while the one in the loggerfile(!) tops out at 35°C
09:23:28 <Bill> a little change can make a big difference that close to an intersection of the creek and the outflow
09:23:49 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough
09:30:34 <ynpvisitor42> short
09:30:42 <ynpvisitor42> no
09:30:58 <ynpvisitor999®> attempt short then :)
09:31:18 <ynpvisitor42> darn near stopped
09:33:48 <ynpvisitor999®> 4y200d since the last Giantess... sigh
09:37:12 <ynpvisitor42> a few more weeks and it will be very difficult to see anything through the dome :(
09:53:04 <ynpvisitor999®> SC?
09:54:08 <ynpvisitor999®> does look like it
09:55:37 <ynpvisitor71> whats up with yesterdays 56min Daisy interval? Then there was an E time 1h48m later - not sure if the 56m one was real - DaveM posted it and he is good at spotting them....
09:56:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll check the captures
09:57:16 <ynpvisitor71> thanks
09:58:08 <ynpvisitor999®> 1951 is a Daisy, 2047 is most likely Dome
09:58:08 <ynpvisitor71> if you skip the 2047 time the intervals look ok
09:58:54 <ynpvisitor71> ah, ok. that loks right
09:59:06 <ynpvisitor71> hopefully Dave will see this and fix it
10:00:45 <ynpvisitor999®> I cannot see the 2235 E Daisy, as it's way too dark, though as it's an E time I don't assume it's a wrong time
10:02:03 <ynpvisitor71> switching Daisy to Dome makes both look right, Daisy interval is fine and so is Dome
10:03:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I've flagged the 2047 Daisy, so hopefully he notices it
10:22:17 <Betty> hi all
10:22:47 <Kevin L™> Guten hello
10:22:57 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:23:12 <Betty> hi Kevin and DG
10:25:24 <Betty> Eric is on his way to wonderland?
10:25:44 <ynpvisitor999®> he should be
10:25:57 <ynpvisitor42> Betty here is todays Aurum https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HWMHC-olItRLow6F6df0byxuoRphRcuy
10:26:08 <Kevin L™> Somewhere between Portland and Rexburg.
10:26:32 <ynpvisitor42> https://youtu.be/oLu1SAMR9sE
10:26:57 <ynpvisitor42> sorry first link not
10:27:40 <Kevin L™> Perfect viewing for it.
10:27:48 <Betty> thx! An Aurum, fun :-)
10:33:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Mugwump isn't looking good - green vent
10:36:59 <Betty> LC ie
10:46:13 <ynpvisitor999®> F&M 1157 A
10:46:34 <ynpvisitor999®> 1201 seen ie
10:49:37 <ynpvisitor999®> there was a GHP @ 0929, too
10:53:03 <Jimbo Plutonium> What does A mean for Fan and Mortar?
10:53:23 <Betty> Approximate
10:53:35 <Jimbo Plutonium> Thank you
10:55:01 <ynpvisitor118> oh that's not a letter grade?
10:55:06 <Betty> only by a visitor report who must not have had the exact time
10:55:06 <ynpvisitor118> A++ eruption!
10:55:13 <Dave from B™> Is Eric going to do an impression of me today? That's one biggie down
10:55:30 <Betty> think he does
10:57:13 <Betty> OF
10:57:59 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, F&M shortens its interval next time for Eric
10:59:29 <Betty> wonder if Cynthia is at Steamboat
11:00:20 <Betty> LC
11:08:15 <Dave from B™> I would say Steamobat platforms are very full today
11:28:19 <Kevin L™> Bummer nobody was down there.
11:29:13 <Kevin L™> Hopefully Giant doesn't go while he is enroute.
11:34:03 <Dave from B™> Steamboat seems close but you know how that can go
11:34:45 <Kevin L™> It helps if you aren't coming
11:34:57 <Betty> tell you are packing and we see what happens in 2 hrs
11:36:53 <Dave from B™> If Sun and Mon of Labor Day are in play, I might be able to make it happen
11:37:22 <Betty> good news
11:37:36 <Kevin L™> When does Becca go back?
11:38:51 <Dave from B™> We are leaving at 0500 Monday...driving the whole way in 1 day
11:39:05 <Kevin L™> Ouch!
11:39:34 <Kevin L™> No eclipse though!
11:39:49 <Dave from B™> haha. I will be well rested this time
11:39:52 <ynpvisitor42> 700 miles at 80mph?
11:40:18 <Betty> you can do that
11:41:10 <Dave from B™> 873 miles...google says 12hr25min
11:41:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:42:05 <Kevin L™> Daisy
11:42:52 <Betty> you save 1 hr by going to another time zone
11:42:59 <Betty> :-)
11:43:13 <Betty> stays at 13 hrs though
11:44:19 <Dave from B™> yep...I'm thinking arrival at OR location by 1700 PT
11:44:41 <Dave from B™> It's only a one way drive. Flying back home
11:45:39 <ynpvisitor76> She’ll have a car this year then?
11:49:18 <Dave from B™> Yes, a small car in a big city...more sleepless nights:)
11:50:47 <ynpvisitor76> Better for parking!
11:51:28 <ynpvisitor76> If the car is full of people, where does all her stuff go?
11:52:16 <Dave from B™> Becca and I are driving. Parker and Michelle are flying out
11:55:12 <ynpvisitor76> That sounds like a good plan
11:55:33 <ynpvisitor76> Is Parker off to college soon?
11:57:11 <Dave from B™> We are taking him around Sept 20.
11:57:46 <ynpvisitor76> To? That is a late start
11:57:50 <Kevin L™> Where is he going?
11:59:11 <Dave from B™> Western Washington in Bellingham. They are on the quarter system
12:00:10 <Dave from B™> So, 3 night trip to YNP (Sept 13-16) that was supposed to be first empty nester now has Parker and Michelle's sister in it
12:00:22 <ynpvisitor76> You will be traveling a lot here
12:00:23 <Dave from B™> oops...brother
12:00:55 <ynpvisitor76> Well that’s different
12:01:42 <Dave from B™> I'm really looking forward to 3 nights on the OR coast starting Tuesday
12:02:14 <ynpvisitor76> Change of scenery
12:16:01 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
12:16:38 <ynpvisitor8> Night Betty
12:28:24 <Dave from B™> Prawn Geyser?
12:31:16 <Kevin L™> Right up your line Dave!
12:31:37 <Dave from B™> I know...Catfish and now Prawn.
12:32:25 <Kevin L™> If you only sold shrimp you would have a prawn shop.
12:34:33 <Dave from B™> haha
12:35:03 <Kevin L™> OF
12:53:39 <Kevin L™> I saw a Traveltalks short on Yellowstone from 1936. Wow! can't believe where you could go then! If you can find a copy, check it out.
12:56:11 <Dave from B™> Things have changed
12:56:30 <Kevin L™> More than I thought.
12:57:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet safety wasn't a concern back then
12:57:52 <ynpvisitor8> '36 - still deep in the Great Depression
12:58:43 <Kevin L™> I couldn't find a clip on the internet but it is sold on a DVD (DVD-R :p)
13:03:28 <Kevin L™> https://smile.amazon.com/FitzPatrick-Traveltalks-1-James-Fitzpatrick/dp/B01F19W4SA/ref=pd_sim_74_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01F19W4SA&pd_rd_r=Y191WSB9REYZYDD1SW65&pd_rd_w=zpQ6j&pd_rd_wg=41ZEK&psc=1&refRID=Y191WSB9REYZYDD1SW65
13:05:26 <ynpvisitor999®> it amuses me it proudly shows 'in Technicolor' on the cover
13:05:51 <Kevin L™> Volume 2 has Holland
13:06:32 <Kevin L™> Back then DG 99% of movies were black & white. Color was very expensive.
13:07:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I do know that
13:08:21 <Kevin L™> If you have ever heard some of us more seasoned types comment about "As the sun sets slowly in the west we end our journey...", that is where that phrase came from.
13:08:33 <Kevin L™> The Traveltalks I mean.
13:08:51 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll try to remember that
13:09:04 <Kevin L™> Ver interesting and popular series.
13:12:35 <ynpvisitor76> Looks like Tara is not at Norris
13:12:57 <ynpvisitor76> Wonder where she was for F&M...
13:14:02 <Kevin L™> With an "A" on the eruption time from a visitor I don't think any gazers were there. They called it ie from Giant.
13:14:53 <ynpvisitor76> Too bad she stayed in UGB yet missed it
13:15:23 <ynpvisitor999®> 17:10:01 ‹ynpvisitor999®› F&M is pretty much due for tomorrow (wild guess), SB might need another day or two-three and Giant maybe a day or 1-3 minimum
13:15:38 <ynpvisitor999®> so far it seems to be true :D
13:18:16 <ynpvisitor70> F&M went this noontime.
13:19:30 <ynpvisitor8> My local library (SLC) has Traveltalks. Saved me $25. I love libraries!
13:20:27 <Kevin L™> Hadn't even thought of that!
13:21:04 <GO GIANT> so the score is now 15 13 12
13:21:14 <GO GIANT> F&M, Steamboat, Giant
13:21:25 <GO GIANT> Steamboat has lost a bt of its mo
13:21:26 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
13:22:17 <Kevin L™> I know how to fix it.
13:22:18 <GO GIANT> shame F&M waited until Cyntha went to Norris and Tara there too since its her weekend already
13:22:48 <GO GIANT> how Kevin?
13:24:56 <ynpvisitor42> Has anyone confirmed F&M since it was guest reported?
13:25:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Tara saw it ie @ 1201
13:25:42 <GO GIANT> or Micah?
13:25:51 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, Micah
13:25:53 <ynpvisitor999®> oops
13:25:55 <GO GIANT> yeah theres a VR start time and an ie from Giant
13:25:56 <ynpvisitor70> Micah reported it on GT as being ie as seen form Giant.
13:26:11 <GO GIANT> he was probably there before work
13:26:17 <ynpvisitor999®> names aren't my strongest point
13:27:06 <GO GIANT> Its Taras weekend, today and tomorrow so I bet she is at Steamboat since it was looking promising yesterday
13:27:18 <GO GIANT> not sure when Micah's weekend is
13:28:04 <ynpvisitor42> Micah posted Visitor report. Ie at 1201 from Giant.
13:28:15 <ynpvisitor70> Tara was in the UGB for awhile this AM anyway.
13:28:18 <GO GIANT> I see Tara posting down basin now, so I got something wrong .. haha, whats new
13:29:31 <ynpvisitor42> too bad she did not go to/near F&M and look for signs of an eruption
13:29:52 <ynpvisitor70> I think the UGB residents are tired of racing back and forth to Norris. Micah told me two weeks back that he was about done with Steamboat.
13:30:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet
13:30:50 <ynpvisitor42> Kitt, shortened her stay at home and went back to SB yesterday
13:31:05 <GO GIANT> doesnt look like she was out in the basin before F&M
13:31:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope it'll settle down around 14d12h, so that there's some kind of know-how on when to (not) be there
13:31:30 <ynpvisitor70> Yeah, Kitt! Two weeks ago she was SO ready to just get home, and now she's back! :-D
13:32:15 <GO GIANT> ith the two 14 day intervals, and quite a big improvement yesterday and we are closing in on 14 days ... I am not surprised the draw to Steamboat
13:32:36 <ynpvisitor70> A nice reliable two-week interval for Steamboat would be dope. It still would not keep people from sitting on it at the one-week mark.
13:33:11 <ynpvisitor42> Kitt posted SB notes at 2000 yesterday
13:33:13 <GO GIANT> i dont think anyone sat gon it at 1 week ... depends on how its recovering
13:33:54 <ynpvisitor42> entered note at 2219
13:34:07 <Dave from B™> I wouldn't be surprised if Kitt's is staying at Norris CG
13:34:24 <GO GIANT> its a draw for sure, may never be this active again in most of our lifetimes
13:34:30 <ynpvisitor70> What would also be nice is if we could follow up on the concept that the Cistern refill time/rate correlates to the interval. Eric and I had started down that path, but we got sidetracked. If someone could send me the refill durations based on the electronic, I;d be happy to take a crack at crunching some stats.
13:35:21 <GO GIANT> hi Bruce and congrats on seeing it
13:35:55 <BruceJ> Thanks. it was a neat thing, to be ambiguous about it ;-)
13:36:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Here's the link to a nice repository of all loggers and data NPS Geology has, including Cistern: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HWMHC-olItRLow6F6df0byxuoRphRcuy
13:36:48 <GO GIANT> neat is a rather understated comment about it...haha
13:37:16 <BruceJ> However the sheer amount f time it took and the hardships that involved makes one start to consider one's motives and life choices.
13:40:19 <BruceJ> Thanks! I think I can make that work.
13:41:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet someone's going to write a book called "How to Question Your Motives and Life Choices When Sitting at Steamboat Geyser"
13:42:49 <BruceJ> LOLZ!
13:43:12 <Kevin L™> Hi Bruce.
13:43:34 <Kevin L™> Chama cam came back on line today!
13:44:02 <GO GIANT> same can be said of Giant and F&M ... many hours spent at them all
13:44:05 <BruceJ> That's what we need - a self-help book on enduring the slings and arrows of a Steamboat Vigil. "The Loneliness of the Long-Haul Geyser Gazer."
13:44:38 <GO GIANT> and while we want Giantess to have an active phase, it would be another time consumer
13:44:52 <Kevin L™> How to store and eat food with out the ranger seeing you...
13:44:54 <GO GIANT> at least the restrooms and food are nearby
13:45:03 <BruceJ> At least with Giant and F&M, decent food is occasionally within reach.
13:45:31 <Kevin L™> Today is the 50th anniversary of the '59 quake
13:45:37 <Kevin L™> 59th
13:45:58 <BruceJ> 59 since '59. Good slogan.
13:46:59 <Dave from B™> Bruce, your are so true re Steamboat sits....and, to me, it is so different than waiting for F&M or Giant. People couldn't understand while I called it a prison
13:47:12 <Dave from B™> why*
13:47:20 <ynpvisitor22> Is OF due?
13:47:55 <ynpvisitor999®> in about 20-ish minutes or so
13:48:14 <BruceJ> Prison - yeah! The car is a half mile away, and the darn sput keeps you guessing so hard that you're afraid to visit the restroom.
13:48:28 <ynpvisitor22> Thx
13:49:25 <Dave from B™> exactly....at UGB, you can at least go pickup something at Lower Ham's. And, with F&M and Giant you have hot periods
13:49:43 <Dave from B™> SB beats you up mentally
13:50:07 <BruceJ> Dave, it was wonderful to meet you, BTW. I hope to meet up again.
13:50:53 <Dave from B™> Same here, Bruce. I'm assuming you are done with gazing for 2018
13:51:46 <BruceJ> And with Giant, once you have a hot period, there's a pretty good chance that you won't need to be there for a few hours. Yeah, probably done for this year. Vacation time is out, and I will need to be home this fall.
13:51:48 <Dave from B™> My wife really supports my habit but she calls it "staring at dirt"
13:52:09 <Dave from B™> I hope to bump into you next year
13:52:49 <BruceJ> Ditto! My wife thinks geysers are great, but not great enough to stare at for dozens of hours in the hot sun and thunder.
13:53:33 <Dave from B™> oh, yeah...almost forgot about our little storm
13:53:41 <BruceJ> We'll be back there mid-July next year.
13:54:17 <Dave from B™> Hopefully 2019 is at least half as exciting as this year
13:54:34 <Dave from B™> I have to run. Have a great evening everyone!
13:55:18 <BruceJ> Same here - a couple more things to do before quittin' time. See you all later.
13:55:40 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Dave and Bruce
13:55:53 <Kevin L™> bye
14:04:15 <Kevin L™> Grand
14:04:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand and OF
14:04:27 <ynpvisitor999®> the usual (near) dual
14:05:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:05:57 <ynpvisitor999®> OF long/medium
14:29:27 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
15:20:15 <GO GIANT> lc are you headed back?
15:20:19 <lc> wonder if Micah checked F&M to verify visitor's report
15:20:43 <lc> hey Graham, yes in a couple of weeks.
15:22:02 <lc> would like to see SB go tomorrow, maybe be due while we are there.
15:23:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Micah saw F&M ie @ 1201 from Giant
15:23:38 <GO GIANT> i think Micak saw it from Giant per his report
15:23:54 <GO GIANT> good luck on your next trip lc
15:24:18 <lc> thanks
15:25:12 <lc> I see that now, he did see it.
15:26:31 <lc> when do you get there Graham?
15:27:07 <GO GIANT> 15 Sept, i made the wrong reservation
15:27:08 <lc> and do you have two weeks?
15:27:47 <GO GIANT> yes, so thats nice. you can get all the geysers lined up for me :).
15:28:04 <lc> I guess most of the labor day gazers will be gone by then.
15:29:14 <lc> so 14 day intervals on SB would work out for you also.
15:31:48 <GO GIANT> haha yeah i hope so
15:32:04 <GO GIANT> but lets get the next eruption done first
15:33:32 <lc> for sure, 2 or 3 eruptions down the road for SB, that is a stretch.
15:35:08 <lc> tomorrow is our anniversary, Ma and me together 51 years.
15:36:16 <GO GIANT> wow congrats to you both. guess she's a keeper :)
15:36:48 <lc> yep, :-}
15:37:06 <GO GIANT> will you leave before i get to YNP?
15:37:48 <lc> yes, we leave Sept 9.
15:37:54 <GO GIANT> sorry i wont see you, hope to next year
15:38:09 <lc> we are there 10 days.
15:38:46 <GO GIANT> go Aurum :)
15:41:02 <lc> I did spend some time at Aurum in July, wanted to be a little closer to Giant.
15:41:32 <lc> got it 'up close' 4 times.
15:42:01 <ynpvisitor8> 1740 wc or earlier
15:42:39 <lc> got delay here but I think 1740 was start.
15:42:58 <ynpvisitor8> Very good
15:43:37 <GO GIANT> 4 is good. maybe more cranky now
15:44:12 <ynpvisitor8> & obviously a long
15:45:14 <lc> I think it is but it did have at least one interval over 24hrs.
15:51:24 <lc> think I will check tv, have a good night.
15:51:56 <ynpvisitor999®> night lc
16:02:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching SC and YNM.

16:46:51 <ynpvisitor31> Rocco feet on Fungoid Spring
16:47:08 <ynpvisitor31> 35 feet! Ha
16:47:38 <GO GIANT> hehe, need the pictures
16:48:38 <ynpvisitor31> Or just consider the source
16:57:04 <Kevin L™> A live lynx on a leash? That could prove to be interesting in the right place.
18:01:15 <GO GIANT> big GHP
18:02:05 <Kevin L™> Hope she gets it.
