04:19:26 <GO Morning (4)> MRNING
04:19:49 <GO Morning (4)> or MORNING
04:20:55 <ynpvisitor10> morning DG and Graham
04:21:11 <ynpvisitor999®> morning 10 (Joe?)
04:21:24 <ynpvisitor10> yes
04:24:05 <ynpvisitor10> Looks like bee is waiting for sunshine today
04:37:56 <ynpvisitor999®> nothing from F&M this night... Doubt this is anything new by now
04:54:34 <ynpvisitor999®> beautiful morning sky
05:17:40 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone. Hard to believe it has been 17 years since the world changed.
05:21:23 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:23:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Riversided
05:28:52 <ynpvisitor10> since 2002 the US navy has flown this jack https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4d/Raising_the_First_Naval_Jack.jpg/800px-Raising_the_First_Naval_Jack.jpg

05:35:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
05:44:38 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP before 0735 - seems to have been a medium one
05:46:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder how SB is looking this morning
05:47:14 <Bill> Morning
05:47:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
05:49:14 <ynpvisitor999®> HK saw some stupid tourists according to his blog
05:50:12 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
05:53:46 <Dave from B™> wow...DG, thanks for the heads up. Lots of people don't care
05:55:52 <ynpvisitor10> what is link to hk's blog?
05:55:56 <ynpvisitor999®> This one caught my eye: "Spent some time watching weak activity at Fan & Mortar. It looked a lot like when it is dormant and you know the cycles aren't going to be strong and there's not going to be an eruption, no matter how good they look when Gold comes on. But during that sort time, there was quite a bit of stupidity. "
05:56:02 <ynpvisitor999®> http://geysers.org/notes/
05:56:28 <ynpvisitor10> tks
06:03:24 <ynpvisitor116> I agree with Kyle that Riverside times from wc should be ie. Maybe that is just assumed yet no real way to get a start time for Riverside from cam. Near start at best.
06:07:20 <ynpvisitor49> "wc" should cover that
06:28:30 <Dave from B™> Morning Emily
06:28:36 <Dave from B™> and Kent ...
06:28:53 <Emily> hi
06:29:49 <ynpvisitor999®> morning both
06:30:00 <Emily> home now
06:30:12 <Dave from B™> Did you enjoy your trip?
06:30:23 <Emily> yes I did
06:30:45 <ynpvisitor...> Good morning Dave
06:31:42 <Emily> nice to be home again.
06:32:20 <Dave from B™> So, what was your "Biggie" score?
06:32:59 <Emily> 3 1 0 0 Giant Steamboat Fan and Mortar Morning
06:33:13 <Dave from B™> Nice...well done!
06:34:05 <Emily> Thanks.
06:35:45 <Emily> I am pressing the sb button for every gazer. I really hope everybody gets to see it
06:37:14 <ynpvisitor49> three Giants is awesome
06:37:39 <ynpvisitor999®> and here I am trying to find and press the pinhead-sized Beehive button...
06:46:24 <Dave from B™> It looks like we will be investing 4 hours on SB Thursday morning between 0830 and 1230 if it hasn't erupted yet.
06:47:21 <ynpvisitor116> You’re in the park Thursday?
06:47:52 <ynpvisitor116> You will get stuck in prison, your wife will have to pry you away
06:48:41 <ynpvisitor116> I’m thinking this next one will be in the dark
06:50:55 <ynpvisitor999®> seen the fast Cistern refill, I wouldn't be surprised if it were to go tomorrow
06:50:58 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
06:52:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
06:52:56 <ynpvisitor116> I agree DG, yet thinking after dark
06:52:57 <Dave from B™> 116, yes. 3 nights in the park beginning Thursday...2 at Lake then 1 at OF
06:53:28 <Emily> Id be willing to go early and spend the night at steamboat. I hink you would capture it then
06:54:11 <Dave from B™> I can't do that this trip but we are planning on leaving at 0500 from Blgs
06:54:41 <ynpvisitor116> Steam phase maybe?
06:54:57 <Emily> ok. I guess today is day 4 so I think wednesday night is prime time
06:55:15 <Dave from B™> I would take that on this trip since this isn't a gazing only trip
06:56:54 <Emily> 116, thats a consolation prize. I do have to say that missing the water phase for any person who really wants to see steamboat is not worth it. Water phase is mind boggling
06:58:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
06:58:38 <Dave from B™> As long as disturbance stays away this fall, I will catch it at some point
06:59:24 <Dave from B™> I'm in the office 1 day between Sept 13 and 26, so October is my real chance
07:01:21 <ynpvisitor999®> curtain
07:01:29 <ynpvisitor...> 0900 wc Fluff
07:02:40 <Emily> Mara is trying really hard
07:03:44 <Emily> she flew out
07:03:52 <Dave from B™> I hope she gets it. I hope she doesn't get too far behind at school because of Steamboat
07:03:59 <Emily> I heard some of the other sputs are trying as well
07:07:11 <Dave from B™> I believe Micah is still at 0...hope he tries for this one
07:07:22 <sparekitty> i will be in cascade this weekend and may try to visit steamboat for a day.
07:07:24 <Emily> yes he is
07:08:10 <Dave from B™> sparekitty, Best guesses thus far are Wed and Mon
07:09:17 <sparekitty> yeah, but ya never know! thanks though for the reality check! it would be silly to make a long drive if there is no hope.
07:11:23 <Dave from B™> Just stay informed and you might catch it
07:11:44 <Emily> watch for a note about deep rumblinb
07:16:25 <ynpvisitor49> when did you hear that in relation to activity?
07:17:27 <Emily> I was asking carol about what the deep rumbling meant. There isnt necessarily a direct realtionship but she said a deep rumbling is good
07:17:43 <Emily> the minor activity for this active phase seems to not matter.
07:17:49 <Emily> this part
07:20:39 <ynpvisitor49> It was ready!
07:41:26 <Dave from B™> ..
07:41:45 <ynpvisitor999®> morning BSK, Jimbo and Kevin
07:45:06 <BSK> Good morning.
07:53:46 <Kevin L™> mornong
07:53:58 <Kevin L™> or something like that!
07:54:03 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:00:48 <Kevin L™> Wow. Joe left BH for me.
08:08:10 <ynpvisitor20> I think someone slept through it.
08:09:14 <Kevin L™> Possibly so but it has been throwing some long intervals.
08:09:42 <ynpvisitor999®> isn't Bee's winter mode lovely?
08:09:55 <Dave from B™> It is getting ready for my arrival
08:10:59 <Kevin L™> Dave broke it.
08:13:08 <Kevin L™> I have the Cumbres & Toltec Steam train cam on my iPad. Looks like they are running a freight train today. Love the sound of that steam whistle. Almost smell the coal smoke.
08:13:49 <Kevin L™> Splashes like that make me think is is on a long cycle
08:14:19 <ynpvisitor27> how long? it's already at 21 hours
08:14:55 <Kevin L™> It went 24 hours about a week ago.
08:15:50 <Kevin L™> Sep 6 23h55m
08:25:01 <Kevin L™> Catch a bit of a closeup before OF window
08:28:04 <Kevin L™> That was cutting it close!
08:42:19 <BH is late> One advantage of setting at BH for days. You car will not get a new paint job when it goes!
08:42:55 <Kevin L™> True
08:43:48 <BH is late> And you get to see Spit Cone.
08:44:10 <Kevin L™> Sometimes Depression
08:44:44 <BH is late> I think they get depression at SB also.
08:45:37 <ynpvisitor999®> found meoteor on overnights @ 0422:07
08:45:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I have a light case of Davespeak
08:46:54 <ynpvisitor...> Dave, you may need to pack Prozac :)
08:51:19 <Dave from B™> haha Kent
09:02:57 <ynpvisitor999®> just checked overnights. We're looking at a closed interval
09:13:49 <ynpvisitor27> booooo

09:26:18 <Kevin L™> text sent
09:26:25 <Eric> txt received
09:26:28 <Eric> thx
09:26:29 <ynpvisitor91> Got the text! Thanks!
09:27:22 <Eric> long interval
09:27:40 <ynpvisitorCC> Thanks for the text. I just happen to be at the computer.
09:28:32 <Eric> Crazy being in the park right now, you have a chance at SB, Giant, F&M and Morning!
09:28:34 <Kevin L™> yw
09:28:55 <Eric> What a crazy geyser summer
09:30:38 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
09:31:25 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
09:31:29 <Eric> BH
09:31:36 <Steph> :heart::heart::heart:
09:31:43 <Eric> run....
09:33:19 <ynpvisitor999®> quite the wind-blown column
09:34:22 <Eric> Yes, wish we still had windspeed in the basin :-(
09:34:56 <Kevin L™> I do miss the of weather station
09:35:39 <Eric> I noticed while there that century link had a weather/webcam behind their building...curious if we could tap into that.
09:36:41 <Steph> oh dang, feed just went
09:36:51 <ynpvisitorCC> Back to qulting...bye
09:36:54 <Eric> Maybe we could convince mike keller to add a homebrew weather station someplace in the UGB for Xanterra "climate monitoring" :-D
09:37:27 <Kevin L™> That may be possible
09:37:45 <Eric> employee safety :-D
09:38:23 <Kevin L™> It would also be nice for customers
09:38:39 <Eric> exactly...know what weather is like before you show up
09:42:32 <ynpvisitor...> I think the one behind the Post Office is the one that used to be listed as the Old Faithful Ranger Station. I asked our webcam guy and he knew nothing about it.
09:43:35 <Jimbo Barium> There's a weather station in Wapiti
09:44:11 <Steph> Off to remodel, thanks for the lovely :bee:
09:44:28 <Eric> The one behind the post office has been run by a few people over the years, but currently it's "supported/owned" by the riverton NOAA. They had a hydrologist maintaining it, so not surprised it ended up dead :-(
09:44:59 <Emily> Ooh marmot cave
09:45:17 <Eric> and you are correct about it being previously listed as the OFRS
09:45:47 <Eric> daisy
09:57:56 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie
09:59:42 <Kevin L™> 1155
09:59:57 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
10:04:13 <Betty> hi all
10:11:53 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:12:21 <Kevin L™> You missed it Betty
10:13:04 <Betty> hi DG and Kevin. Bummer I´m late to the show :-(
10:45:37 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
10:57:00 <Kevin L™> Dave is away. This would be a good time for Giantess.
10:57:23 <ynpvisitor999®> it would
10:57:36 <Jimbo Barium> I'm here, though.
10:58:11 <Kevin L™> Last time it went Dave was at the dentist.
11:00:18 <Jimbo Barium> Went twice when I was on vacation
11:00:49 <Kevin L™> Went once when I was on my way to the park.
11:07:06 <Jimbo Barium> Was it still going when you got there?
11:07:23 <Kevin L™> Nope
11:07:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
11:07:50 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:07:51 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:07:52 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:08:02 <Betty> yeah
11:08:17 <Betty> good I´m lagged
11:08:38 <Kevin L™> :)
11:08:47 <Jimbo Barium> There 'tis
11:09:08 <Betty> bad is my choppy streaming :-(
11:09:33 <Kevin L™> OF messed with focus
11:34:44 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like OF doesn't really like me today...
11:34:46 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie
11:35:38 <Kevin L™> 1333 early. May havee been late 1332 but it was close
11:37:50 <Kevin L™> Pretty good crowd for this late in the year.
11:39:47 <ynpvisitor999®> what's that ambulance doing on static?
11:40:20 <Kevin L™> Probably taking care of a sick person.
11:43:18 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1330
11:45:16 <Dave from B™> ..
11:45:35 <Betty> this looks like a monster heading towards the east coast
11:45:54 <Kevin L™> Right at Graham.
11:46:23 <Kevin L™> I will take my 115° days over that anytime!
11:46:41 <Betty> me too
11:47:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I have to note a hurricane would take care of the preciptation shortage we're having in no-time...
11:47:39 <Dave from B™> yeah...too much at one time isn't a good thing, either
11:47:56 <ynpvisitor999®> true
11:48:22 <Betty> hey Dave, where have you been? Giantess was fun but short
11:48:45 <Dave from B™> haha...yearly checkup at the doctor
11:52:45 <Kevin L™> I hate that. :P
12:04:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Morning's back side runoff channels were wet @ 1000
12:05:15 <ynpvisitor999®> though no observed dual as of now
12:06:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching SC and YNM (and Lion in maybe a few hours).
12:06:38 <Kevin L™> night
12:06:54 <Betty> night DG
12:13:39 <ynpvisitor27> dddaiys
12:13:56 <ynpvisitor27> try again, Daisy
12:13:56 <Betty> yyyes
12:14:11 <Kevin L™> DDDDDavespeak!
12:14:38 <ynpvisitor27> lol
12:25:55 <Betty> time to get some sleep. night all
12:26:08 <Kevin L™> night
14:08:03 <Kevin L™> Grand
14:08:04 <Kevin L™> .
14:08:04 <Kevin L™> .
14:08:05 <Kevin L™> .
14:08:06 <Kevin L™> .
14:14:38 <ynpvisitor17> looks just a bit windy
14:14:55 <ynpvisitor17> Grands up, now it's down, and it's up again...
14:15:19 <ynpvisitor17> the landscape, not the bursts
14:15:21 <Kevin L™> 8m
14:15:35 <ynpvisitor17> there have been some late 2nds lately
14:15:42 <Kevin L™> Getting seasick today
14:15:54 <ynpvisitor17> I bet
14:16:07 <ynpvisitor17> vw would not have been happy with this
14:18:07 <Kevin L™> no she wouldn't
14:18:38 <Kevin L™> Guessing a 1b
14:18:47 <ynpvisitor17> that was abrupt
14:19:16 <ynpvisitor17> there's a C
14:19:27 <ynpvisitor17> I'm going with 1C
14:19:49 <Kevin L™> I was agree
14:25:29 <ynpvisitor17> visitation was down for August. That is good news
14:28:03 <Kevin L™> Very good
14:36:55 <ynpvisitor10> Disy
14:37:02 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy
14:37:20 <Kevin L™> Yep a pair
14:38:40 <Dave from B™> Down 11% but I think that is ALL eclipse related
14:39:03 <Kevin L™> Probably so.
14:39:22 <ynpvisitor49> for the whole month?
14:39:48 <Kevin L™> There were a whole lot of people there for the eclipse.
14:40:16 <Dave from B™> Just ask people who were in the park the 19-21st last year. I heard it was gridlock on the 20th
14:40:33 <Kevin L™> Lion looking happy
14:41:04 <ynpvisitor49> could it be 11% of the total just on those few days?
14:41:37 <Kevin L™> Yes. Ask Dave about traffic that day!
14:41:46 <Dave from B™> Do they have daily visitation records online? That would be fun to see
14:42:15 <ynpvisitor17> not day by day that I know of
14:42:21 <Dave from B™> I went the other direction but I'm sure Idaho I-15 has NEVER seen that many people in one day
14:42:29 <ynpvisitor17> yet this year with early LD, it was really quiet the end of August
14:42:30 <Kevin L™> Check Grand Teton for that month.
14:43:29 <Kevin L™> Eclipse went through the Tetons.
14:43:31 <Dave from B™> I know YTG had mentioned a slow week right before Labor Day. I wonder if Glacier and other Western fires scared people away
14:44:20 <Dave from B™> I know my Kalispell Whitefish business dropped when Lale McDonald fire really got going
14:44:59 <Kevin L™> They all wanted bacon Dave.
14:49:34 <Kevin L™> Got my infield pass to the truck race Dave.
14:50:05 <Dave from B™> nice. You going to any other events?
14:50:29 <Kevin L™> The dirt track race on Thursday.
14:52:36 <Dave from B™> Hi, Graham
14:53:12 <GO MORNING (4)> hello....2 days for you, nice
14:53:34 <GO MORNING (4)> just watchingGary Einstein video of Giant
14:55:54 <GO MORNING (4)> looked better on their side of it
14:56:16 <Dave from B™> If SB can hold off until Thurs at 0830...I'll be there for up to 4 hours
14:57:56 <Kevin L™> That means be there Wednesday night if you want to see it.
14:59:20 <Kevin L™> The Cumbres & Toltec was supposed to be there at 1605. Still hasn't shown up. I am expecting to see an Amtrak logo on it when it shows up.
15:00:03 <GO MORNING (4)> plus a 4h walk around back basin? And a 4h walk around porcelain Basin?
15:02:05 <GO MORNING (4)> is there a chat page for it that you can post conspiracy theories?
15:03:10 <Kevin L™> I think about 1000 of them
15:03:33 <GO MORNING (4)> just for that one train?
15:04:17 <Kevin L™> Oh, I thought you meant the back basin. There are a few for the train. It just showed up.
15:05:08 <GO MORNING (4)> thats a relief
15:06:29 <Kevin L™> They have some train chat pages that are run by Nazis. If you talk anything but a train (an you better also talk about the proper train) then they fry you.
15:11:54 <GO MORNING (4)> yikes i wouldnt last long there
15:12:26 <GO MORNING (4)> and i am guessing faisy would be out of the question
15:14:07 <GO MORNING (4)> we should swap their keyboards with some of Dave's design
15:14:23 <Kevin L™> That would be interesting
16:52:02 <Kevin L™> Supper time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UIA8xOVcOs&feature=player_embedded_uturn
16:53:59 <Kevin L™> Don't think I would have wanted to be the guy to place that cam!
16:55:08 <ynpvisitor61> Too bad this page has deteriorated into so much garbage.
17:11:28 <Kevin L™> Tall Daisy
17:29:51 <Kevin L™> Cam is on autopilot
17:47:18 <Michael> OF ie
