04:57:54 <ynpvisitor60> Jim gave up on SB, is in UGB
05:11:38 <Eric> Morning
05:12:16 <ynpvisitor16> morning
05:12:20 <ynpvisitor37> hi Eric is that you near BEE
05:12:54 <Eric> Not yet, heading up the hill
05:13:36 <ynpvisitor37> Hope you have a great gazing day
05:13:47 <Eric> Thx
05:14:43 <ynpvisitor112> Are you out of prison today?
05:15:22 <Eric> Yep, staying in ugb
05:16:25 <Eric> Now I am at bee
05:16:46 <ynpvisitor16> smart choice i think
05:17:15 <ynpvisitor37> Smile we see you
05:17:16 <ynpvisitor60> Jim abandoned SB. wonder who is left there?
05:19:39 <Bill> Morning
05:19:57 <Eric> Yes, we left SB about 2 yesterday
05:20:05 <Eric> Hi bill
05:21:24 <ynpvisitor60> now time to move into the cage instead of the shipwreck
05:22:05 <Eric> Yep, exactly
05:23:15 <ynpvisitor37> From the steam on the cam there was at least 1 GHP last night
05:23:37 <Eric> Nice, what time?
05:24:16 <ynpvisitor37> I'll look did not write it down
05:24:41 <Eric> Thank you
05:25:00 <ynpvisitor16> Bill, interesting stuff to do today?
05:25:17 <Eric> Just trying to gauge early morning or late
05:25:21 <ynpvisitor60> you could put it on GT with a ? - not sure any GHP has been reported on WC wit hcertainty
05:25:46 <ynpvisitor60> wind can pay tricks down basin
05:26:29 <Eric> True 60, I think your idea is perfect
05:27:35 <ynpvisitor37> possible ghp 2226
05:28:07 <Eric> Thx
05:28:30 <ynpvisitor60> was SB not very impressive yesterday or people just burned out from sitting there too long?
05:29:40 <ynpvisitor16> the notes don't say anything unfortunately
05:29:48 <Eric> Not impressive IMO
05:30:06 <Bill> ynpvisitor16, I dont think so. I've hada pretty intense friday-monday in my personal life. No pressing emails today, so It'll be a nice catch up day
05:31:24 <ynpvisitor16> catchup days are good :) Hoping you can get the Steamboat logger to start talking again, but no rush, it is being watched
05:31:39 <Eric> When I left at 2, there had been minimal excitement with the previous day we had 2 almost eruptions by that point
05:32:39 <Bill> Hmm. I'm going to UGB tomorrow. Maybe i can download our logger for ya
05:32:49 <Bill> I have to pass Norris anyway
05:32:53 <Eric> Sunday was an awesome SB day, minus an eruption :(
05:34:09 <Eric> That would be awesome bill, we suspect something big happened overnight on Sunday-Monday
05:34:45 <ynpvisitor16> Bill lots of driving in your job! Not all exciting field work, huh
05:35:13 <Eric> Stop by Giant and say hello :)
05:35:59 <Bill> Yeah, tons of driving. Going from Mammoth to UGB and back is a lot of time commitment.
05:36:12 <Eric> Can you guys see Bora peak erupting?
05:36:41 <Eric> Zoom behind me
05:37:01 <ynpvisitor16> and great radio in the car - Not
05:37:19 <Eric> Dang just stopped
05:38:12 <Eric> Was there an overnight grand?
05:38:42 <ynpvisitor37> did not see it
05:39:48 <ynpvisitor37> and do not see it on the capture
05:40:57 <Eric> Hmm, thanks
05:42:14 <ynpvisitor37> was very dark and foggy in that area when grand should have been
06:03:00 <Eric> Lion looks ready
06:05:14 <Jimbo Dubnium> First time I can remember hitting the same number two days in a row
06:05:14 <ynpvisitor96> How does Aurum look?
06:05:21 <Jimbo Dubnium> I should buy a lottery ticket
06:07:44 <Eric> Not sure yet :lol:
06:09:48 <ynpvisitor37> LC
06:31:35 <Kevin L™> Daisy
06:32:12 <ynpvisitor55> Jim S has given up on SB. Back in the UGB
06:44:07 <ynpvisitor52> CTC Indy bubbling
06:47:43 <ynpvisitor60> BH is out of its window, we must have missed it :(
06:49:43 <Kevin L™> I believe that is Indy right now.
06:49:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say it is
06:50:03 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:50:27 <Mike J> Just try to pick on Beehive and see what happens
06:52:18 <sparekitty> Does Jim S have a big beard?
06:52:55 <ynpvisitor114> I would say stubby.
06:53:19 <ynpvisitor114> but full.
06:53:46 <ynpvisitor60> go see at Giant .. he is there
06:53:47 <sparekitty> hmmm. i met a guy named jim with a very memorable gray beard at SB when I was there earlier this month...he was clearly a regular.
06:53:48 <Kevin L™> Joe, are you on? pm me if you are.
06:54:18 <sparekitty> not a big deal; i'm always trying to put faces with the names/nicknames on this chat.
06:54:37 <ynpvisitor60> Jim S spent a long time at SB, so could easily have been him.
06:54:52 <ynpvisitor55> Beards are more memorable to some than others
06:54:56 <ynpvisitor114> red coat and ball cap?
06:55:31 <sparekitty> nobody was wearing a coat 'cause it was sooo hot, and EVERYBODY was wearing a i don't recall.
06:56:17 <Bill> Last minute requests for a bluetooth logger location in UGB that Interp can check in their phones?
06:56:29 <Bill> There will be loggers at Castle, Daisy and Grand, I have one extra
06:56:29 <ynpvisitor99> Once again, text worked wonders. Thanks
06:56:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Link, as I'm fairly certain it doesn't have one
06:57:33 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, maybe a regular logger will do for Link
06:57:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion then, maybe?
06:57:55 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
06:58:06 <Kevin L™> If that is a Ranger tour, they are really lucky.
06:59:09 <ynpvisitor999®> at least they've halted, so they're in for a good show
06:59:46 <ynpvisitor55> Will gazers be able to read loggers on their phones Bill?
06:59:52 <Jimbo Dubnium> nobody did the Indy thing
06:59:55 <Jimbo Dubnium> .
06:59:56 <Jimbo Dubnium> .
06:59:57 <Jimbo Dubnium> .
07:00:02 <Jimbo Dubnium> Indy
07:00:06 <ynpvisitor99> :)
07:00:30 <Kevin L™> I just figured there were enough beeps
07:00:35 <ynpvisitor60> Grotto could be an option for a logger
07:00:53 <ynpvisitor60> its by the trail they go by usually
07:01:18 <ynpvisitor60> and is one we dont have a lot of data for ... not sure if they would put the info on GT tho
07:02:29 <Eric> Ranger tour got my call :lol:
07:03:29 <Kevin L™> You picked the right spot today Eric!
07:03:39 <ynpvisitor60> Lion or Aurum could be good for rangers doing the tour if they want to download and show the visitors the data
07:05:33 <ynpvisitor3.14> Trying to pick out the ranger in the group to see if it's my neighbor...
07:05:49 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
07:06:27 <ynpvisitor999®> shower time!
07:07:33 <Bill> ynpvisitor55, all I'm going to say is that I'm only giving the Interp Rangers the password.
07:08:07 <ynpvisitor999®> understandable
07:08:12 <Jimbo Dubnium> There was really good complexity in the early stages of this one
07:09:24 <Bill> OK, i'm out for the day. Heading to NGB and UGB in no particular order
07:09:39 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Bill
07:09:48 <Kevin L™> Have fun Bill. Maybe you will catch SB!
07:09:49 <Bill> Have a good one!
07:09:57 <Bill> Maybe! I'll be out there with Jeff today
07:10:44 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a fun BEe
07:11:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand?
07:12:05 <ynpvisitor999®> no, that would be an unlikely 10h+ interval
07:16:19 <ynpvisitor60> grotto
07:38:31 <ynpvisitor9> NPS has a Grand prediction, so they must have gotten the E time
07:45:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket ~24m into Grotto
08:04:11 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ns
08:05:53 <ynpvisitor8> Giant has not erupted on 8 days yet this year, maybe today will be the day
08:06:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd almost certainly say so
08:07:15 <Eric> I saw a small sput erupting east of Chinese spring, while I was at BH, anyone know what it might be?
08:07:25 <ynpvisitor25> Look at the YNM trace. ???
08:07:46 <Eric> SB?
08:07:51 <ynpvisitor999®> good catch
08:08:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Not sure if it's SB, but if the thickness of the trace holds, it's almost certainly SB
08:08:21 <ynpvisitor25> Might be. Need another update
08:08:44 <ynpvisitor25> That would be more than a half hour ago.
08:08:44 <ynpvisitor999®> should be in in about 4-5m
08:08:46 <Kevin L™> Run Eric!
08:10:03 <Eric> Sitting at hams of course!
08:10:24 <ynpvisitor73> It would be nice if it settled on a roughly two-week predictable schedule.
08:10:45 <ynpvisitor25> That's already 38 minutes old. darn it.
08:10:49 <ynpvisitor999®> as for the sput you saw east of Chinese Spring, was it across the river just below Cascade's pool?
08:11:15 <Eric> Uggg, hope someone got it!
08:11:49 <ynpvisitor25> Kitt was probably there. She's an earlybird.
08:12:21 <Eric> Hope she got it
08:12:23 <ynpvisitor999®> if it is SB, I really hope Bill got at least part of it
08:13:09 <ynpvisitor25> Why won't it refresh? Crazy...
08:13:30 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, not SB, just loud noise at that time
08:14:14 <ynpvisitor999®> alright. Now it's time to calm the nerves
08:14:20 <Eric> Kitt did say she was going to go jump up and down at the museum
08:14:52 <ynpvisitor999®> that wouldn't help us in the slightest :D
08:16:14 <ynpvisitor25> hah! That is a very big and loud trace, even if it is just one or two minutes...?
08:16:16 <ynpvisitor73> It's an "idling diesel truck in parking lot" detector?
08:16:30 <ynpvisitor25> Steam explosion?
08:16:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd imagine a steam explosion would also show up on YNR
08:17:37 <ynpvisitor999®> and possibly on B950
08:17:51 <ynpvisitor25> Might. Does SB show up there?
08:18:13 <ynpvisitor16> one of the almost @#$#@ minors?
08:18:42 <ynpvisitor25> The actual size of the trace is usually better seen once the graph moves up a half hour.
08:19:03 <ynpvisitor25> That would have to be a BIG @%&$# minor...
08:19:16 <ynpvisitor999®> B950 doesn't show SB, maybe because it's too far away for SB rumbling to record
08:20:03 <ynpvisitor16> just asking - do those show up, like the ones 2 days ago?
08:21:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt it, 16. If they do show up, they're probably no stronger than background noise
08:28:46 <ynpvisitor25> It includes a red spike. I am hoping for a steam explosion (non-lethal, of course)
08:29:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
08:30:30 <ynpvisitor16> steam explosion, where?
08:31:56 <ynpvisitor999®> that spike of noise @ 1000 on YNM. Personally I think it's unlikely for it to be a steam explosion, though
08:31:58 <ynpvisitor73> nice lion
08:33:56 <ynpvisitor25> I agree - unlikely - wishful thinking
08:38:54 <Kevin L™> Looked like the start
08:38:55 <ynpvisitor16> but where would you like it to be?
08:43:01 <Betty> Yay, Grand
08:43:28 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
08:43:38 <Betty> Hi Kevin
08:43:47 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
08:44:07 <Betty> I guess Eric gave up at SB?
08:44:15 <Betty> hi DG
08:44:37 <Betty> and Jim too?
08:46:15 <Kevin L™> 8m
08:47:52 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
08:48:05 <Betty> Tunnel kicked me out
08:48:40 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
08:48:42 <Kevin L™> 2nd
08:48:43 <ynpvisitor16> still intrigued by your steam explosion wishful thinking - where/what would you think would be likely to happen?
08:50:02 <Jimbo Dubnium> Wow, just got back in front of my screen and saw that 2nd cloud
08:50:33 <Betty> With a Steam explosion I guess at least some rocks would be thrown around
08:51:31 <ynpvisitor999®> #25 quit, but personally I think a steam explosion is unlikely, but not impossible. If there were to be a steam explosion shown on YNM, I either assume there was one in the Bastille area or over at Porcelain Springs
08:51:38 <Betty> One may hit Kevins car
08:53:13 <Betty> Steam explosions happened at porkchop and Plume
08:53:30 <Betty> years ago
08:54:35 <Betty> btw, cake is gone Kevin. My collegues erased it:-)
08:54:48 <ynpvisitor16> oh, didn't know 25 quit, thanks. Just curious why they would wish that, and where they thought it might happen
08:55:53 <Kevin L™> That didn't take long
08:56:09 <Betty> Nope
08:56:22 <ynpvisitor999®> it came about when it was clear there was no SB on the seismo @ 1000 MDT (fairly certain most of us hoped it would be SB), but the noise spike seemed to be larger than the usual spikes shown
09:01:25 <Betty> Bbl
09:01:36 <ynpvisitor999®> see you later Betty
09:01:47 <ynpvisitor16> so instead of a truck driving by, he said steam explosion, I guess?
09:03:21 <ynpvisitor999®> 10:16:30 ‹ynpvisitor25› Steam explosion? <- that's the first mention of a steam explosion
09:03:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:33:03 <ynpvisitor4> I was 25. I mentioned Steam explosion as a possible explanation for appears to be a good-sized red spike followed by a substantial but brief blue trace. It may be that, it may be a small localized quake, or it may be something else entirely. I was just fantasizing on the idea. If it WERE a substantive steam explosion, we might know about it by now.
09:34:52 <ynpvisitor999®> YNM doesn't show quakes, as it's configured differently than other seismos
09:35:21 <ynpvisitor4> And a closer look reveals that the red spike seems to precede the heavy blue trace by a half hour anyway, so...
09:36:18 <ynpvisitor4> Yepp, thanks for that 999 - I presume it's designed to pick up the SB vibes (maybe around 30 Hz?) rather than a seismic wave.
09:42:52 <ynpvisitor16> Hate to say it, but if Porcleain blew up, the Steamboat watchers probably wouldn't notice!
09:43:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
09:49:51 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a short second eruption of the series
10:00:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I think SC is pre-eruptively steaming
10:55:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:55:50 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon kc
10:56:56 <kc (working)> hola
11:25:29 <Kevin L™> Only 48 days before the Knights whips the Sabres.
11:28:33 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Eric
11:28:43 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
11:28:47 <Eric> At least 7h since the last hot period...
11:28:57 <Eric> Hi DG
11:29:23 <Eric> Nice and sunny in the UGB
11:29:24 <Betty> hi Eric!
11:29:28 <kc (working)> dream season's over KL back to reality
11:29:28 <GO GIANT> is it time?
11:29:33 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
11:29:39 <GO GIANT> ?
11:29:55 <Eric> Grotto just started
11:31:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:56:56 <Kevin L™> That looks bigger than Grotto
11:56:57 <ynpvisitor112> Giant?
11:57:16 <ynpvisitor112> YEP
11:57:42 <Kevin L™> :):):):):):)
11:57:57 <GO GIANT> yeah
11:58:00 <Kevin L™> Eric got his Giant
11:58:33 <GO GIANT> :)
11:59:19 <Kevin L™> Nice to at least get this much on the cam!
12:00:02 <ynpvisitor32> Yay!
12:00:10 <GO GIANT> hope peeps are there
12:00:19 <GO GIANT> Jim S I see. not sure who Jeff is
12:00:49 <GO GIANT> now everyone can move to F&M :)
12:00:58 <Kevin L™> Or SB
12:01:09 <GO GIANT> hope Eric left the Hams
12:01:12 <ynpvisitor999®> oh hi Giant
12:01:51 <kc (working)> cool
12:02:08 <Jimbo Dubnium> I gotta keep walking away from my monitor.
12:03:00 <BruceJ> I met Jeff when I was there two weeks ago, but did not catch his last name.
12:03:25 <Jimbo Dubnium> Eric better post video
12:03:42 <GO GIANT> is he confirmed there?
12:03:45 <Kevin L™> I am sure he will.
12:03:54 <Jimbo Dubnium> If he's there (hope he is)
12:04:21 <Kevin L™> He noted Grotto start at 1329 so I assume he was.
12:05:36 <GO GIANT> ah yes, should have been there. start was 1301 ..... quite a bit earlier :)
12:07:36 <Kevin L™> Now he can sit on Aurum.
12:07:59 <BruceJ> Glad Jim is getting a nice daylight Giant. It gave him quite a bit of trouble earlier this year.
12:10:14 <GO GIANT> so intervals of 10, 9, 8 days .... anyone want to project for the next one?
12:10:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
12:11:44 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say longer than 8 days, based on the last few closed intervals. Giant appears as if it's doing "series" of three, where each interval becomes shorter as the series progresses
12:12:11 <ynpvisitor999®> as this is third eruption of a "series" I'd say a longer ahead
12:12:30 <ynpvisitor999®> ...a longer interval ahead*
12:12:49 <GO GIANT> booo i am going with 7
12:14:07 <GO GIANT> its Taras work time now :(
12:14:11 <BruceJ> I am going to wait a little longer before I decide that the 3-series is a "thing" and not co-inkeydink.
12:21:25 <GO GIANT> o the score is 15 13 13 F&M SB Giant assuming none missed and the ? was real
12:21:45 <GO GIANT> and the once leading SB is now tied for last place
12:22:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Anyway, here I have a graph for Lion's duration versus interval (duration is usually accurate at plus or minus 5s):
12:22:43 <ynpvisitor999®> some terminology is subject to change
12:22:48 <BruceJ> The average of Giant intervals this year is *about* 11d 21 hours. The last 4 intervals average about 8.5 days.
12:24:10 <BruceJ> Fabulous graph, 999 - thanks!
12:24:19 <Daryl> Is there a way to "roll back the webcam" and see the Giant eruption?
12:24:26 <ynpvisitor999®> your welcome, Bruce
12:25:01 <Daryl> For instance spooled to youtube or something?
12:25:33 <Kevin L™> Unless someone here got it they may post it. Otherwise it will be on the replays tomorrow.
12:25:39 <ynpvisitor999®> GOSA uploads a timelapse of the webcam every night (daytime) and morning (overnight)
12:27:13 <Daryl> I'll look for it there, thanks.
12:29:16 <GO GIANT> 13 May thru 3 Aug SB was the leader
12:31:28 <GO GIANT> but F&M has been in the lead the rest of the time since the first eruption 30 Jan
12:32:49 <GO GIANT> with Giant trailing one or the other or both
12:36:38 <Betty> bah, missed Giant :-p
12:36:53 <Betty> did Eric ge it?
12:36:58 <GO GIANT> hello x
12:37:20 <GO GIANT> looks like it based on his grotto comment 30m earlier
12:37:24 <Betty> hi Graham
12:37:32 <Betty> hopefully
12:37:40 <GO GIANT> you didnt miss it, its still erupting
12:38:52 <Betty> Great
12:39:16 <Daryl> Is that the steam to the right of Grand, then, behind the trees?
12:39:23 <GO GIANT> 44m in
12:39:27 <Kevin L™> Yes
12:39:28 <Betty> yes
12:40:01 <Kevin L™> Right there
12:40:23 <BruceJ> My earlier average for the Giant intervals is for the last 11 plays, BTW, after the initial "let's get going" period.
12:41:02 <Daryl> Maybe some day there will be a webcam on that end of the UGB too.
12:41:23 <Kevin L™> That would be great!
12:42:14 <Daryl> We just need to convince Canon and NPS. :)
12:42:45 <GO GIANT> now Eric needs F&M - he may be there long enough
12:43:00 <GO GIANT> that will give him the trifecta
12:43:05 <Kevin L™> And get more bandwidth. Can't run this one and a static at the same time. :(
12:47:39 <Betty> today 1 year ago I sat at Craig Thomas Visitor Center in Grand Teton to watch the solar eclipse :-)
12:48:12 <Kevin L™> Wow how time flies!
12:48:55 <Kevin L™> That was really fun. About 1500 my Granddaughter came in and asked if we could go do the eclipse again.
12:49:14 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
12:49:21 <Betty> :-D
12:50:12 <ynpvisitor118> 999, is "initial block" intervals following the initial?
12:50:13 <Betty> the eclipse was an everlasting moment
12:51:21 <Jimbo Dubnium> I was in Kentucky to see it
12:51:27 <BruceJ> That eclipse was dope. What a wonderful, gentle spectacle!
12:51:45 <ynpvisitor999®> 118, yes
13:01:29 <Larry in Denver> Greetings letters and numbers
13:01:51 <Kevin L™> Hi
13:02:05 <Betty> hi Larry
13:02:47 <Larry in Denver> It's raining here today - a good thing to help cut down on fire danger
13:03:15 <BruceJ> Hi, Larry. Gotta scoot for now. Have fun guys. Go Steamboat! Go F&M! Go Penta!
13:03:32 <Betty> bye Bruce
13:03:38 <Larry in Denver> bye
13:03:48 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Bruce
13:03:49 <Kevin L™> Bye Bruce.
13:04:00 <ynpvisitor999®> and afternoon Larry
13:04:08 <ynpvisitor118> nice graph, can you make one that puts the series ending eruption in a different color?
13:05:15 <ynpvisitor999®> good question you got there
13:05:20 <GONE GIANT> should be done about now
13:06:30 <ynpvisitor999®> as I don't record the following interval after end of series. In that file I simply put in the time and mark it with EOS (end of series)
13:07:30 <ynpvisitor999®> no point is added, as the resulting interval would negatively influence the graph, as in, the lines would go all over the place
13:08:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I could look into adding up total duration and then the interval. I also suspect the length of the previous couple of series influences the resulting end of series-initial interval
13:09:01 <ynpvisitor999®> so that requires some more observations and most likely more accurate durations
13:11:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm going to have a look into writing an article about Lion's duration vs. interval in the upcoming week or so
13:11:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
13:12:57 <ynpvisitor999®> and post that article on the listserv
13:15:02 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a good Lion this far into the series
13:19:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching Lion, SC and YNM.
13:19:36 <Betty> night DG
13:19:47 <Larry in Denver> Have a good evening

15:19:16 <Eric> They never came over to say hi.
15:20:19 <GO F&M> they were working ... haha
15:21:10 <Eric> I think k you were right Graham about Done being in, watched a few more today and they were much smaller
15:21:23 <Eric> Dome
15:21:36 <Eric> Dave infected my phone
15:21:58 <GO F&M> it looked like thicker steam and short intervals after. day 2 they are smaller and shorter and longer between them
15:22:03 <Eric> Dome ini
15:22:25 <GO F&M> so which is your favorite? Dome SB Giant?
15:22:42 <Eric> I hate SB :lol:
15:22:54 <GO F&M> so thats your favorite?
15:30:59 <GO F&M> i guess it must be a hard decision for Eric
15:35:13 <GO F&M> of
15:35:28 <Eric> I liked cave a lot
15:41:48 <Kevin L™> He must be hanging around Ryan.
15:42:46 <ynpvisitor9> why hate SB?
15:43:03 <GO F&M> you have been drinking too much
15:43:32 <GO F&M> is your family enjoying their trip too?
15:46:06 <GO F&M> Micah posted a nice picture on FB

15:56:17 <Eric> Wife is a little under the weather
15:56:41 <Eric> Daughter got to see Giant too
15:56:51 <Kevin L™> Smoke inhalation?
15:57:51 <Eric> Combination of heat, smoke and lodge food I think
15:59:01 <Kevin L™> Mostly lodge food
16:02:48 <GO F&M> sorry to hear that. whats the plan for the rest of the week?
16:03:15 <GO F&M> Snow Lodge has the best food BTW
16:03:49 <Kevin L™> Not the geyser grill :p:p:p:p:p
16:04:22 <GO F&M> nope, the restaurant...not always a quick meal tho
17:53:34 <ynpvisitor71> Castle. started in last couple of minutes
18:36:07 <ynpvisitor65> Kevin, Castle needs a wc unless you transported to the basin
18:36:31 <ynpvisitor65> Oops, an in basin time is there now
18:46:36 <Kevin L™> At this point I am lucky to just get Castle right. I did fix the secondary anyway.
18:47:07 <Kevin L™> Looks like we may have a Grotto now.
