03:36:51 <ynpvisitor40> .
03:36:53 <ynpvisitor40> .
03:36:56 <ynpvisitor40> .
03:37:57 <ynpvisitor23> Horrible timing and interval.
03:41:41 <ynpvisitor40> 23h56m
03:46:47 <ynpvisitor40> Daisy
03:51:16 <Rice> Bee is getting tired it has been a long summer.
03:51:30 <Rice> Or the Ranger forgot to push the button.
03:59:16 <ynpvisitor40> Let there be light and color
05:59:57 <ynpvisitor...> Possibility of some honey before dark:thumbsup:
06:01:02 <ynpvisitor...> Split Cone ie wc 0800
06:01:20 <ynpvisitor40> yep if it dosen't go long again
06:01:53 <ynpvisitor...> We live in hope, or at least I used to....
06:02:48 <ynpvisitor...> Gardiner cam a good addition. Nice view.
06:04:41 <ynpvisitor40> I watched four be all night thinking how am I missing it then at 5:34 bingo 23 hours 55 minutes
06:05:41 <ynpvisitor40> for BEE*
06:10:38 <ynpvisitor18> Longest Bee in last 100
06:11:06 <ynpvisitor...> Our best hope may be dawn tomorrow :(
07:07:08 <Dave from B™> wow...that's a crowd
07:07:38 <Dave from B™> I hope they get a Lion initial
07:08:45 <Dave from B™> Aurum is also due
07:12:06 <ynpvisitor103> I bet you broke Aurum
07:35:45 <Dave from B™> I'm confused by the last Steamboat post by cb last night. Her comment to Mary Greely....was that just bs?
07:40:41 <ynpvisitor56> from Bill, not cb?
07:41:42 <ynpvisitor38> Yeah Mary is a notorious internet liar/troll/conspiracy theorist
07:42:05 <ynpvisitor38> Her channel gets a lot of traffic and she covers Yellowstone and spins anything that we mention in chat, that's on the cam, or into GeyserTimes into money
07:42:17 <ynpvisitor38> By making up nonsense and conspiracy theorist nonsense
07:43:00 <ynpvisitor38> So if you're reading this Mary go F yourself
07:44:10 <sparekitty> wow! i am really glad i'm not mary!
07:45:21 <ynpvisitor38> In case you didn't know we're all being lied to by the "USBS" and the park is going to explode. Mary is just another person selling fear and lies to make a buck and drive up view counts on her channel and page views on her website
07:47:44 <ynpvisitor38> She's now using our own tools against us to spread her lies
07:49:01 <ynpvisitor38> She's not alone either, there's TONS of Youtube channels now that just throw up seismo, cam grabs and steal Gazer Youtube and facebook posts to make money off this sh_t
07:49:13 <Dave from B™> I thought that name sounded familiar...thanks....makes perfect sense....there are so many losers in this world.
07:49:28 <ynpvisitor52> gtg cam available now
07:49:59 <ynpvisitor38> I know Art mentioned having to do like 20+ take down requests for his Steamboat view and like 99% of them were conspiracy theorist channels
07:50:10 <ynpvisitor38> view = video
07:50:36 <Dave from B™> I wish there was something we could do about all the nonsense out there
07:54:31 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
07:54:54 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:55:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum might be soon
07:55:41 <ynpvisitor23> Not holding my breath, not sure what a good looking Aurum is besides one that's erupting ;)
07:55:56 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough :)
07:56:13 <ynpvisitor23> I hope he gets it though!
07:59:02 <Rice> Can anyone verify if the Gardiner School is just above the hosues in the Gardiner Webcam?
07:59:12 <Kevin L™> No Aurum now. I am back.
07:59:23 <Rice> One of the guys I work with, his son works there.
08:01:30 <And Dime> Is the bus associated with it?
08:04:53 <Dave from B™> The school is right behind the arch in the north entrance cam
08:05:25 <Dave from B™> Let me zoom in on the river cam
08:05:56 <And Dime> Thanks Dave
08:06:32 <Dave from B™> I believe that is the school to the left on the busses
08:06:42 <Dave from B™> To the right is the NPS Archives
08:07:22 <Kevin L™> Mobile school?
08:08:17 <And Dime> Yeah, it's the right color and if you look on Google Maps satellite, you can see where the buses park
08:08:38 <Dave from B™> haha...of the busses
08:10:20 <kcmule> i'm no expert but i'm looking at the norris seismo
08:10:52 <ynpvisitor999®> you almost made me think SB went off...
08:11:02 <ynpvisitor999®> correction: you made me think that
08:11:46 <Dave from B™> Made me look too!
08:11:50 <kcmule> yeah I'm looking at the wrong one
08:12:17 <kcmule> YFT
08:12:50 <kcmule> i've got a friend entering the park right now, glad it isn't going at least til he gets there
08:13:18 <Kevin L™> That would sure be a bummer.
08:13:40 <kcmule> it already happened to him once
08:14:39 <Kevin L™> That would make it worse. Sounds like a good shot at Giant todays too.
08:15:16 <ynpvisitor23> 4d 10h wouldn't be unprecedented but...
08:15:19 <Dave from B™> nice...Emily got Artemesia
08:16:02 <kcmule> i missed the 4 day interval in june by 10 hours, and the 9 year interval in 2000 by 4 hours
08:16:05 <Dave from B™> I sure wish I could invest Fri and Sat at Steamboat
08:16:49 <Kevin L™> Just have them drop you off.
08:18:24 <Dave from B™> I'm missing 8 days of work this month so no chance for me
08:19:14 <Kevin L™> Tell them you are practicing for retirement.
08:19:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:21:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand 1019
08:21:34 <ynpvisitor999®> G--
08:22:03 <ynpvisitor999®> the sneaky devil :D
08:22:27 <Kevin L™> I thought I was in the middle of a Turban cycle.
08:22:40 <Kevin L™> Thanks for the catch DG
08:22:50 <ynpvisitor999®> no problem
08:22:56 <Kevin L™> Looks like a 29m Turban.
08:23:10 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that
08:23:41 <Kevin L™> I hate it when it does. Really bad in person.
08:27:20 <kcmule> 7.8 in fiji, got another friend heading to new zealand today
08:28:07 <Kevin L™> Think there was an ugly one in Japan last night too.
08:28:24 <kcmule> 8.1 if the reports are right
08:28:26 <Dave from B™> 6 hour 8 minute average for last 100 Grand is crazy...that also may include a 12hr6min double
08:28:58 <Dave from B™> Pacific is really shaking this summer
08:29:05 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
08:29:10 <Kevin L™> 2nd!
08:29:10 <Dave from B™> woohoo
08:29:26 <Kevin L™> Good atom bomb shot
08:29:56 <kcmule> looks like the 8.1 was downgraded to 7.8. still, that'll stir your coffee
08:30:10 <ynpvisitor999®> depends on how deep it was
08:30:23 <Kevin L™> Turn your cream into butter too.
08:32:26 <Kevin L™> Nice Grand eruption
08:32:43 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G2*Q | 11m19s
08:33:36 <Kevin L™> EQ was 608 km deep
08:34:20 <Kevin L™> Looks like a Steamboat signature on the OF seismo.
08:34:42 <ynpvisitor999®> they probably didn't feel that much of it then. I'd be surprised if it did anything more than maybe tipping some shelves over
08:34:52 <kcmule> yeah that was my mistake, @KL
08:36:49 <Dave from B™> ..
08:36:55 <ynpvisitor57> sounds like a fishy story about 9yr Giant interval and 2000...there wasnt one kcmule
08:37:21 <kcmule> steamboat, not giant 57
08:37:33 <kcmule> sorry to confuse
08:37:54 <ynpvisitor57> ah, thats more like it
08:37:57 <Dave from B™> 57, I know kc is right. That is my son's birthday
08:38:12 <Dave from B™> 5/2/200
08:38:14 <Dave from B™> 2000
08:38:18 <kcmule> may 2, a date which will live in my personal infamy
08:38:53 <Dave from B™> wasn't the day you were hooked?
08:38:55 <ynpvisitor57> let us all know the dates and times of your next visit so w can plan accordingly
08:39:59 <kcmule> will do. yeah dave, it was still quite a sight. but u don't know if you're lucky or not, depends on perspective I guess
08:42:11 <Dave from B™> If Steamboat goes next week while I'm there, I will go after the fact to see the steam phase
08:43:19 <Dave from B™> In 2000, that was lucky...today, anything but seeing the start is a loss
08:43:26 <Dave from B™> for me
08:44:59 <ynpvisitor57> steam phase is worth seeing if you are in the park and this years mixed phase is different too
08:45:52 <Dave from B™> I figure all 4 biggies will go while I'm in the park sightseeing/hiking
08:47:52 <ynpvisitor57> are you going to make them all erupt before Graham gets there?
08:49:13 <Dave from B™> Probably
08:49:53 <And Dime> Regarding the Grand 2nd burst today -- thank me, I was elsewhere.
08:51:06 <And Dime> Are they drilling something at Old Faithful??
08:51:29 <kcmule> I did get a 3 burst grand one year plus an afterburst. that was pretty neat, even if the AB wasn't particularly tall
08:52:08 <kcmule> took me 10 years of trying to get F&M though
08:52:48 <kcmule> and still no Morning for me. sigh
09:01:54 <Dave from B™> kc, ditto on F&M but getting #1 and #2 in the same year was fun
09:04:59 <Dave from B™> kc, how many trips have you taken to YNP this year?
09:07:03 <kcmule> just the one in june. direct to NGB and directly home
09:08:51 <Dave from B™> I thought you had gone twice....Are you going to try again this year?
09:09:02 <Dave from B™> That's right...you had 1 aborted trip as well
09:23:14 <Dave from B™> I would be curious to know who has invested the most time this year at Steamboat and not seen yet....I know my 44 hours is miniscule compared to others
09:23:27 <ynpvisitor112> :bee:
09:23:38 <Dave from B™> I would be curious to know who has invested the most time this year at Steamboat and not seen it yet....I know my 44 hours is miniscule compared to others
09:23:45 <Dave from B™> no bee here
09:24:09 <Kevin L™> :bee: was hiding behind OF this morning
09:24:41 <ynpvisitor112> sneaky :bee:
09:27:08 <ynpvisitor57> thats not a competition you want to win Dave
09:27:19 <Kevin L™> Super long interval on that one too.
09:29:08 <kcmule> did David S ever catch it? he was there the same days I was in June but I think he had to go home a little after me.
09:30:33 <Kevin L™> If you think we have tourons here, we are not alone. Last night I was watching the Flagstaff AZ railcam and an idiot made a left turn and ended up between the two mainline tracks. He tried to back up but was not able to. He then tried to drive over the tracks and got stuck about 3m before Amtrak was due. Ended up shutting down both mainlines for about 45m
09:32:46 <Dave from B™> 57, you mean there isn't a trophy for most hours watching dirt?
09:33:24 <Kevin L™> We should make one Dave.
09:34:14 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:34:31 <Betty> morning all, evening DG
09:34:32 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
09:34:43 <Kevin L™> Aurum waited for you.
09:34:46 <Betty> hi Kevin
09:39:15 <Betty> poof
09:39:27 <Kevin L™> Nice tall one
09:40:11 <ynpvisitor999®> nice on static
09:44:59 <Dave from B™> Hi, Betty
09:45:22 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how about a ship with a couple of dead fish hanging out?
09:45:28 <Kevin L™> I think Bobin SLC wants to see Aurum
09:45:43 <Kevin L™> That could work Dave.
09:45:48 <Betty> hi Dave
09:46:04 <Betty> preparing your hiking trip`?
09:46:10 <Kevin L™> On top of a bottle of NoDoz®?
09:48:42 <Dave from B™> Betty, we talked briefly last night...still scrambling to put the Bellingham/Victoris trip together
09:55:43 <Betty> Lion
09:55:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
09:55:59 <Dave from B™> Our hikes will be chosen from: Trout Lake, Petrified Trees, Grebe Lake, Storm Point, Shoshone Lake (via Lewis Lake), Fairy Falls
09:56:20 <Betty> nice program
09:56:47 <Kevin L™> Go for Monument Basin Dave!
09:56:50 <ynpvisitor999®> nice height
09:57:01 <Dave from B™> My wife doesn't want any hills
09:57:08 <Betty> looks like a small OF
09:57:17 <ynpvisitor999®> it almost does
09:57:23 <Betty> I can relate Dave :-)
09:58:38 <Kevin L™> Monument is not a hill. A cliff maybe, but for sure NOT a hill.
09:59:28 <Betty> I did that twice. Can´t believe I did
10:00:17 <Kevin L™> It is fun but steep
10:01:21 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
10:01:24 <ynpvisitor23> Monument isn't too bad of a hike
10:01:41 <Dave from B™> My wife doesn't want to feel like the weak link. Her brother just climbed Kilamanjaro this summer
10:01:47 <ynpvisitor23> I'd put it at a moderate
10:01:52 <Betty> no, not at all. It is great up there
10:01:59 <Betty> LC
10:02:17 <Kevin L™> I could never do it again.
10:08:19 <ynpvisitor23> Looks like Bob got sucked into Aurums siren call
10:09:03 <ynpvisitor...> It is true, Aurum is one evil sput!
10:09:03 <Kevin L™> Like Dave and SB but on a smaller scale
10:15:01 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
10:18:06 <Dave from B™> Bob Bob Bob.....run run run:)
10:30:00 <Kevin L™> Another bathtub
10:36:13 <ynpvisitor57> W entrance is completely empty ... where did all the peeps go, isnt it still LD week?
10:38:57 <ynpvisitor23> Gate crowds kinda die down around lunch-1pm
10:48:53 <Kevin L™> Still at Giant Micah?
10:49:20 <Micah> Nope, just running around posting "obvious" notes.
10:49:23 <Micah> :p
10:49:41 <Kevin L™> Aurum is due...
10:49:54 <ynpvisitor23> "due"
10:49:58 <Micah> Saw that conversation a few days ago and had a chuckle. This summer is the first I've seen Blue Star flaming like that periodically.
10:50:06 <Micah> Data is data.
10:50:17 <Micah> Nothing is "obvious" with geysers.
10:50:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess this means rockpile isn't looking exciting
10:50:37 <Micah> The D-word is being thrown around with Rockpile in hushed tones right now.
10:50:55 <Micah> I haven't been paying attention to it that much this summer anyhow. I've been too busy going out for the 5-7 hour HP windows.
10:51:16 <ynpvisitor23> Micah do we need to create OtterTimes.org?
10:51:27 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
10:51:37 <Micah> It's a non-geyser related event isn't it?
10:51:53 <Kevin L™> Unless it falls into one.
10:51:58 <ynpvisitor23> I kid.. I kid..
10:52:34 <Micah> We have another oppurtunity for a HP from 2-4 but I'll be at work.
10:52:42 <Micah> work 1400-2200
10:52:46 <ynpvisitor999®> to be honest, I think some geysers need to be converted into large soup resevoirs, notably Giantess
10:53:10 <Micah> Clark was lamenting the pathetic pool that is Giantess to me at Lone Star the other day.
10:54:08 <ynpvisitor23> Any word out of LGB?
10:54:23 <ynpvisitor23> Figure there'd be more folks hanging out at Fountain between Giant/SB
10:54:39 <ynpvisitor999®> speaking of SB, any word on that one too?
10:55:17 <Micah> Great Fountain probably erupted between 9 and 12. I haven't heard anything on Fountain or SB.
10:56:23 <Micah> And while it's still hot and exhibitting strong ebullition. Victory still refuses to erupt.
10:57:29 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe it needs some help...
10:58:07 <Micah> Well with all the dozers and trucks rumbling around up there. who knows. I talked with the maintenence guys today before I posted that note.
10:58:55 <Dave from B™> hahaha...tougher fitness program running from Castle:)
10:58:58 <ynpvisitor23> Do you think they will close off the old road or just the area by Riverside
10:59:27 <Micah> Just the area by Riverside.
10:59:42 <Micah> They will begin pouring the rubber walk on the 19th.
11:00:02 <Micah> It will extend from the Giant bike rack all the way to the end of the Riverside Loop.
11:00:36 <Micah> The smaller loop near Spa is being decomissioned for reveg, and I didn't see this personally, but I heard they're beginning to escavate for the pit toilet.
11:01:07 <Micah> However Heinrich and I noted that if victory ends up erupting or putting out more water, the site of the pit toilet is sitting right in the path of the runoff. We'll see what happens.
11:01:42 <Kevin L™> A flush toilet!
11:01:50 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
11:02:30 <Micah> I'll probably be out for the nighttime hot period if it goes later or if I get out of work early.
11:02:44 <ynpvisitor999®> but wouldn't Victory wet the walk too when it erupts?
11:03:02 <Micah> Probably not.
11:03:03 <Dave from B™> I enjoy sitting in the cage. It is much more relaxing than being at Steamboat
11:03:24 <Micah> When it was erupting in 2009 it didn't splash the walk, it hit about 3-5 feet and lasted 40 minutes, pouring out water.
11:03:45 <Micah> But it killed all those snags you see alongside the walk between Spa and the end of the riverside loop.
11:07:31 <ynpvisitor999®> as for the pit toilet being in the runoff channel, I think temporarily diverting the runoff around it would be the best solution if Victory ends up erupting
11:08:09 <ynpvisitor57> i see Walt hit a bison and isn't happy. thankfully Pat is ok
11:08:35 <Micah> 999 that's an idea yep. We'll see what the NPS has in mind.
11:08:54 <Micah> Yeah. Thank goodness Pat's ok.
11:09:15 <ynpvisitor57> Walt looks like a write-off
11:09:39 <Kevin L™> Where did he hit it?
11:10:26 <ynpvisitor57> front passenger side .. not sue where the bison impact was
11:10:39 <ynpvisitor57> looks like FLD?
11:11:25 <Kevin L™> I was wondering what part of the park.
11:11:34 <Betty> Lion
11:12:02 <Dave from B™> I take it Walt is her car?:)
11:12:17 <And Dime> Lion looks like it had a spotlight on it
11:12:19 <ynpvisitor57> yep, her truck
11:12:45 <ynpvisitor57> the photo on FB is a single lane road pulloff
11:13:24 <Micah> Impact was at Midway is what heard.
11:15:02 <ynpvisitor57> ok, could be too. roadway looked odd
11:15:12 <Kevin L™> Not good. Hope they didn't need towed.
11:15:27 <Kevin L™> That is worse than hitting the bison
11:15:56 <ynpvisitor57> its going to need a flatbed
11:16:09 <ynpvisitor57> maybe towable
11:16:56 <Kevin L™> I can tell you how much it costs to tow one from OF to Rexburg about 4 years back. :grand:
11:17:15 <Dave from B™> ouch
11:17:54 <Dave from B™> Micah, do you know your schedule for Sat the 15th yet?
11:18:48 <Kevin L™> My daughter just sent me the picture. Ouch!
11:19:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:19:33 <ynpvisitor57> yeah, looks like he whole cab buckled too
11:20:23 <Kevin L™> I guess it is better than Paul Strasser's encounter.
11:21:17 <Micah> Dave from B It will probably be a late shift 1400-2200. I don't have it set, but my manager has been giving me a lot of lates.
11:22:01 <Kevin L™> So annoying when work gets in the way of gazing.
11:22:05 <Dave from B™> Darn...well, you'll get to check me in for the night anyway:)
11:23:32 <Micah> Checkin time is at 1630, see you there.
11:23:44 <ynpvisitor57> express checking or full info on everything in the Inn and vicinity? Get all your questions ready
11:23:45 <Micah> Kevin L actually late's are great because they give me the most time in the basin.
11:24:00 <Micah> 57 I've heard it all.
11:24:15 <ynpvisitor57> i bet and then some
11:24:37 <Dave from B™> I'll be ready. Is it okay to ask when the first OF for Sunday will be?
11:24:50 <Kevin L™> At least you know what you are talking about.
11:25:13 <Micah> 0800 when the visitor center opens Dave. might take a while for the pipes to warm up.
11:25:22 <ynpvisitor57> "where is the best seafood shop in the area?"
11:25:35 <Micah> ok I haven't heard that one.
11:25:38 <Dave from B™> haha.
11:26:13 <Kevin L™> Send them to Dave.
11:26:32 <Dave from B™> I'll bring you a few cards:D
11:26:43 <Micah> haha.
11:26:53 <Micah> #1 question is do we have wifi
11:27:16 <Betty> do you?
11:27:20 <Kevin L™> I bet TV is high on the list too.
11:27:44 <Micah> No. Since this building is a national historical monument we cannot install or it would lose that status.
11:27:56 <Betty> ah, ok
11:28:04 <Micah> Wifi is available at the Old Faithful Snowlodge across the parking lot. It's pay as you go and it's slow. Good for only business or email.
11:29:44 <Betty> next question is" When do they let the bison out in the morning?
11:29:58 <Dave from B™> Betty, I forgot Lone Star on my hike list
11:30:07 <Betty> :thumbsup:
11:30:41 <Kevin L™> Look for wild strawberries and raspberries along the way.
11:30:51 <Kevin L™> Will you have bikes?
11:31:00 <Dave from B™> no bikes
11:31:27 <Kevin L™> My kids munched berries the whole way.
11:33:05 <Micah> Dave from B let me know when you do that hike. I'd love to tag along if you wanted company
11:33:19 <Micah> No berries that I've seen Kevin but I was also flying down on a bike.
11:34:00 <Kevin L™> They were right by the path most of the way. The kids spotted them right away.
11:35:23 <Micah> ok. Maybe I was just going to fast haha
11:35:49 <Kevin L™> Check it out for sure. There were a bunch and they were good.
11:42:28 <Dave from B™> Micah, I'll let you know if Lone Star makes the cut...still in the planning stages
11:42:59 <Kevin L™> It is worth it day. Nice hike.
11:43:20 <Micah> And Black Hole is active!!!
11:44:00 <Kevin L™> Wonder if Bob gave up on Aurum.
11:46:16 <ynpvisitor...> Berries=bears!
11:48:25 <Dave from B™> I'm not scared of bears with 4 adults and 2 cans of pepper spray and I'll be singing....that even scares the birds
11:48:46 <Kevin L™> It would scare me!
11:49:28 <ynpvisitor999®> have ever broken a mirror or glass when singing?
11:49:34 <ynpvisitor999®> have you ever*
11:49:45 <Dave from B™> The only hike I know we're doing for sure is the 11 mile loop to Shoshone from Lewis. It's been 25 years since we did that trail
11:50:12 <Micah> Time for work, have a good day everyone!
11:50:12 <Dave from B™> Saw 3 moose a frog ....it was a great day
11:50:19 <Dave from B™> see ya Micah
11:50:24 <ynpvisitor999®> same to you, Micah
11:50:34 <Dave from B™> What do I need a mirror for?
11:50:50 <ynpvisitor999®> I dunno... breaking it while singing?
11:51:00 <ynpvisitor...> I saw Micah in a tie last week. It was a sobering expereience.
11:51:17 <Kevin L™> Ties also cause cancer.
11:51:29 <ynpvisitor...> :)
11:51:35 <Kevin L™> by Micah
11:51:40 <Dave from B™> Yes....I have more fingers than times I've worn a tie in my life
11:53:30 <Betty> hahaha, Kent
11:57:49 <ynpvisitor999®> in other news, I wonder if Brilliant will play a (big) role in the future, seen today's note
12:07:28 <Kevin L™> Castle
12:07:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
12:08:23 <ynpvisitor999®> almost Lion time
12:19:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
12:26:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching SC, Aurum, the treeline and YNM.
12:27:02 <Kevin L™> Night
12:27:36 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, SB is now in my low-confidence window of September 7 @ 1121 ± 24h

12:36:06 <Betty> .
12:36:09 <Betty> Aurum
12:36:36 <And Dime> Oooh, I saw it
12:36:42 <Dave from B™> darn
12:36:43 <Betty> :thumbsup:
12:37:04 <Betty> I think I saw it late and I´m lagged
12:38:12 <Kevin L™> Ugh
12:38:18 <ynpvisitor...> :thumbsdown::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:
12:39:54 <Dave from B™> Kevin, can you track airplanes all over the world or just in your area?
12:41:00 <Kevin L™> Just in my area, but the guy has other receivers and covers much of the southwest.
12:41:44 <Dave from B™> I was just wondering if Air force One had landed in Billings yet
12:41:57 <ynpvisitor17> ugh, that is happening today?
12:42:24 <ynpvisitor17> I saw an ad for people to come to rally with their signs and trucks for $15/hr
12:42:44 <Kevin L™> I would no be able to tell that. Here is the link to the one I am part of with all receivers active: http://thebaldgeek.net:2277/virtualradar/desktop.html#
12:42:48 <Dave from B™> He is even spending the night
12:43:11 <ynpvisitor17> you will be in the front row Dave?
12:43:36 <Dave from B™> Just hoping my guys get everything delivered this afternoon without too much trouble
12:44:13 <ynpvisitor...> This is cool - "Yellowstone's webcams continue to be the biggest draw to the entire NPS website. ......the webcam page is currently the #1 page so far for all of 2018"
12:45:18 <Dave from B™> Kent, do you have a link?
12:45:39 <ynpvisitor...> No, personal communication.
12:46:07 <Dave from B™> nice...it means we need more webcams!
12:47:00 <ynpvisitor...> I have sites picked out :)
12:47:39 <Kevin L™> I think the last time I saw data there were over 20,000 different hits per day with an average stay of over 2h.
12:47:43 <Dave from B™> don't we all.....Do you think cam ops could drive 4 at once?:)
12:50:35 <Kevin L™> I know some camops that can't even get Aurum
12:50:44 <Dave from B™> hehehe
12:51:13 <Dave from B™> How about one on the new vault toilet?
12:51:37 <Dave from B™> F&M, Riverside, Spa, Grotto, Giant, Rocket:)
12:52:00 <Dave from B™> First cam ever fueled by #2
12:52:09 <ynpvisitor...> :)
12:52:48 <Dave from B™> There has to be a solar camera that Canon needs to test
12:54:02 <ynpvisitor...> I think the USGS cam is solar & cell phone
12:54:41 <ynpvisitor...> Dave, when are you headed to the park?
12:55:08 <Dave from B™> Thursday, Sept 13 via Beartooth Highway
12:56:59 <EmilyW> Howdy howdy
12:57:06 <ynpvisitor40> Oh no, now there will be early snow road closures on the tooth!
12:57:25 <Dave from B™> Hi, Emily...congrats on Artemersia
12:57:39 <Kevin L™> SB Wed Sep 12th
12:57:40 <EmilyW> Thanks. 2nd in two days
12:57:58 <Kevin L™> I love the thumps
12:58:30 <EmilyW> I stood up, went to the right side of the wall and saw flaring champagne bubbles and the goose neck gone
12:58:46 <EmilyW> SB tonight
12:59:10 <ynpvisitor17> what time tonight? Don't want to miss it
12:59:23 <ynpvisitor...> :)
12:59:31 <Kevin L™> Back in the late 70's they used to let you sit below the wall at the edge of the geyser. Thumps were incredible there.
12:59:34 <EmilyW> Leavig 2330
12:59:45 <ynpvisitor17> good luck
12:59:53 <ynpvisitor17> and Kevin, some folks still venture there...
13:00:02 <Dave from B™> to go to SB or going back to CO?
13:00:19 <EmilyW> Go to sb. I am actually home from CO
13:00:28 <EmilyW> mI think I have a good shot at sb
13:00:45 <Dave from B™> You're spending the night there?
13:01:01 <EmilyW> Yes
13:01:17 <Dave from B™> Is does like the night time
13:01:20 <Kevin L™> Good luck with it.
13:01:26 <Kevin L™> Watch for bison.
13:01:44 <EmilyW> yeah poor patS
13:01:47 <EmilyW> glad she's ok
13:02:02 <ynpvisitor40> Emily was Daisy WC then?
13:02:13 <EmilyW> Huh?
13:02:53 <ynpvisitor40> it is posted in basin
13:02:55 <Kevin L™> I don't know if it is posted anywhere but Paul's description of his encounter is priceless.
13:03:21 <EmilyW> Poo in the vehicle
13:03:26 <EmilyW> Is it mine you are asking about?
13:03:50 <ynpvisitor40> Yes 1318 daisy
13:04:03 <EmilyW> That's in basin
13:04:30 <ynpvisitor40> OH I thought you said you were home in CO
13:05:01 <ynpvisitor40> I read your post wrong
13:05:29 <EmilyW> Oh. I'm at castle. I actually had a summer thing in acaí. But that's over so now when I leave YNp I'll be back home in CA
13:06:03 <EmilyW> Legendary autocorrect strikes again. CO=acaí
13:07:10 <EmilyW> The problem is that my Dave brand keyboard has autocorrect but since I butcher words so much the autocorrect is not helpful
13:07:30 <ynpvisitor40> :) :)
13:07:31 <Dave from B™> haha. You headed in or back into the basin?
13:08:25 <ynpvisitor17> geez, he is at Castle Dave
13:09:00 <EmilyW> I'm at castle
13:09:11 <Dave from B™> 17, at some point, Emily is going to stand up.......was just wondering what direction she is going.....Oye
13:09:28 <EmilyW> hanging in th shade then to grand
13:09:38 <ynpvisitor17> ha, got it Dave from B
13:09:45 <Dave from B™> That sounds better than a Lower Ham's burger anyway
13:09:46 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a smart move.
13:10:07 <Kevin L™> You already missed Aurum anyway.
13:10:17 <EmilyW> starting move for the hot periods again.
13:10:37 <EmilyW> Yes I did. I keep doing that. Fan and Nortar is pathetic
13:11:28 <Dave from B™> So, far those who have seen both function Giant's. Is Mastiff function Giant a LOT taller?
13:11:52 <EmilyW> it's absurd.
13:12:17 <EmilyW> i collapsed in tears
13:12:32 <Dave from B™> Was that your first Giant?
13:13:11 <EmilyW> no, I saw a south Fuc room in July
13:13:49 <Dave from B™> You should really get a new keyboard
13:14:13 <Kevin L™> She already has one of yours Dave.
13:14:28 <ynpvisitor17> ha ha ha
13:14:39 <Dave from B™> That's what I mean...you need a new one
13:14:51 <ynpvisitor17> someone really needs to change the Fountain prediction. Those days are GONE.
13:16:16 <Dave from B™> 1730 is probably the earliest Fountain will erupt
13:16:44 <Dave from B™> I haven't seen Jake around here for awhile
13:17:02 <EmilyW> That's bad
13:17:10 <EmilyW> the Daisy prediction is off too
13:17:15 <EmilyW> hour off of nos
13:20:41 <EmilyW> I really hope I get it tonight
13:21:01 <Kevin L™> We are cheering for you
13:21:54 <Dave from B™> Best of luck Emily
13:23:24 <EmilyW> I think it's more dependable tonight into tomorrow than giant or fan and mortar are
13:24:20 <ynpvisitor40> cover your car!
13:24:59 <Kevin L™> Is HK still there?
13:25:06 <EmilyW> Oh yes. Covering car. tP, big boi flashlight, water water water, food etc
13:26:45 <EmilyW> Hk? I haven't seen him today.
13:27:09 <Dave from B™> Don't forget your BBQ and umbrella
13:27:14 <EmilyW> Lots went to steamboat today but I did not think it was going to go early
13:27:23 <Kevin L™> I hadn't seen a post.
13:27:35 <EmilyW> ill bbq some hot dogs at steamboat
13:41:30 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
13:41:46 <Kevin L™> Night Dave.
13:42:56 <Betty> bye Dave
13:43:14 <Betty> headed out too. night all
13:51:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> down to 9 ...
14:00:28 <ynpvisitor40> Kevin do you have the cam?
14:00:49 <Kevin L™> Yes. I can release it now.
14:01:05 <ynpvisitor40> OK I'm ready
14:01:26 <Kevin L™> Released. Was just going to move back but I will let you make that call.
14:01:52 <ynpvisitor40> thanks
14:03:50 <Kevin L™> Turban 1556
14:19:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> smoke on Electric Peak view?
14:23:37 <ynpvisitor17> wow, they have it bad
14:40:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> grand
14:40:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
14:40:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
14:40:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
14:40:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> bison too
14:40:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> bene a while since I saw one on cam
14:48:50 <ynpvisitor40> pause
14:49:10 <Kevin L™> . . . .
14:50:36 <ynpvisitor40> 2nddone
14:50:50 <ynpvisitor40> just done
15:17:33 <ynpvisitor88> Sitting on my patio. Air Force one just landing
15:18:01 <Kevin L™> Can you see it?
15:18:06 <ynpvisitor88> That’s a huge plane
15:18:34 <ynpvisitor88> Long approach
15:18:37 <Kevin L™> A 747 if I remember correctly.
15:19:00 <ynpvisitor88> He probably saw me with my glass of wine
15:19:32 <Kevin L™> He might be over later tonight.
15:21:03 <Kevin L™> I am watching the steam trains switch at Chama.
15:21:25 <Kevin L™> Not so big but they do run a wine train.
15:22:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> does he own a golf course nearby 88? :)
15:22:36 <Kevin L™> I finally got a train engine today that I ordered in December. December 2016 that is.
15:25:04 <Kevin L™> I wonder if we will get a short interval BH after that absurdly long one.
15:25:07 <ynpvisitor88> Graham, he just landed in billings
15:27:05 <ynpvisitor88> Graham, I think you have picked the correct geyser this time
15:28:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow .. didnt know he owned a course there
15:29:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah F&M look unhappy, and Giant probably needs more time
15:29:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> will be interesting to hear the reports today
15:29:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> Jim and SteveO were in UGB
15:43:04 <ynpvisitor40> The cam is going to get dirtier.
15:46:29 <Kevin L™> I hope that was a rain drop
16:12:34 <ynpvisitor5> Too bad it got smoky
16:59:12 <ynpvisitor5> Another “no eruption yet” note from SB. Tell us something we don’t know...
17:17:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least we know someone was watching.
17:17:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> should be in its window, i expect most will be there tomorrow unless it beats them to it
17:18:12 <kcmule> sleep is overrated
17:18:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> you should drive up now kcmule
17:18:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> best chance ever
17:18:55 <kcmule> so it will go for them while I'm on my way?
17:18:57 <Kevin L™> Geez you didn't even do BH last night
17:19:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was quite a wait for BH
17:19:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> will it go before dark today?
17:21:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC?
17:21:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep
17:21:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> splashy
17:25:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> Brian posted Grotto, still down basin
17:25:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> F&M is now on its longest interval of the season
17:32:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> Steamboat is just passed its shortest interval
17:33:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Giant is 1.5 dys under its shortest interval
17:34:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> tomorrow is primetime for SB if it keeps to its recent pattern
17:56:34 <ynpvisitor17> Brian who posted Grotto is not Brian R
17:56:59 <ynpvisitor17> BH is hiding from the Emperor
17:57:09 <ynpvisitor17> they must have had a disagreement
18:09:23 <ynpvisitor17> darkness falls
18:19:48 <Kevin L™> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtGxusvUT3k
18:19:51 <EmilyW> Operation steamboat is ago tonight. May the seismo stay quiet until 0100
18:22:38 <ynpvisitor40> plenty of viewers at BH
18:35:55 <ynpvisitor17> It is dark dark now
18:36:25 <ynpvisitor17> yeah, Fountain before dark
18:37:35 <ynpvisitor17> I am guessing that was late in the eruption.
18:43:17 <ynpvisitor72> Lots of lights at BH
18:48:49 <ynpvisitor40> Fountain has two times 1913 and 1954
18:50:39 <ynpvisitor17> both ie
18:50:45 <ynpvisitor17> hopefully someone was out there.
19:16:35 <ynpvisitor57> MORNING!!!!
19:16:41 <ynpvisitor57> Woo hoo
19:16:53 <ynpvisitor57> Another dual with Fountain
19:17:15 <ynpvisitor57> A few gazers were there so more info to follow
19:17:27 <Kevin L™> :)
19:23:19 <ynpvisitor109> 819 interval on fountain
19:57:50 <Kevin L™> Another long Bee
19:59:06 <ynpvisitor34> Anyone know what actually happened with that note bbev posted on cistern about that "secret eruption"?
20:08:13 <ynpvisitor45> I think it's in reference to internet trolls scouring GeyserTimes for material to feed their supervolcano conspiracy theories.
20:08:27 <ynpvisitor45> But I don't know the specifics.
20:13:40 <Ben VL> Gotchya... lol
