02:44:36 <ynpvisitor48> looks a lot like SB on YNM
02:48:00 <ynpvisitor48> seems to be still ie
02:54:50 <Betty> hope someone is there to see it
02:57:40 <ynpvisitor...> Damn! Dave, you have my condolences.
03:04:49 <Rice> Good mroing, OF ie as I log on, and I see SB went.
03:44:40 <999 Phone> I see SB went again :)
03:45:38 <999 Phone> start time is 0423 rather than 0420. Lines can be a bit tricky to work with
03:47:02 <999 Phone> don't think Dave will spend some time at SB now... :(
04:02:45 <ynpvisitor64> i thought Steamboat would have waited until dave had left home .... but 1 day early is ok. Now he can enjoy the rest of the park
04:04:02 <GO GIANT (3)> Agree with the timing being 0423, I expect Mara stayed overnight given the good indicators so we should get an actual strt time
04:04:58 <GO GIANT (3)> so its 18 17 15 3 Steamboat takes the leaf, F&M, Giant, Morning
04:05:04 <GO GIANT (3)> or the lead
04:05:06 <ynpvisitor10> I was going too make a mad dash to SB today after I got off the cam, as I was sure it would erupt late today since Dave made his announcement. :(
04:05:09 <ynpvisitor49> I hope she was there!
04:05:43 <GO GIANT (3)> given the yhad back to back good minors and SB was her trip goal, I would be very surprised if she left
04:06:13 <GO GIANT (3)> guess where I am likely spending Sunday night?
04:06:45 <ynpvisitor49> :)
04:08:05 <Betty> I changed the E time to 0424. I guess put a flag to it is too hard
04:08:22 <Betty> a comment is ok, but a flag??
04:08:48 <Betty> Good timing for you and me, Graham
04:09:38 <GO GIANT (3)> put in another one at 0423 and then delete the other you
04:09:52 <GO GIANT (3)> you will still have the primary entry
04:10:00 <ynpvisitor71> Udo being idiot Udo!!!
04:10:11 <GO GIANT (3)> now now 71.....play nice
04:10:12 <ynpvisitor10> weGraham we will miss your in basin reports as you will be sitting at SB
04:10:28 <ynpvisitor71> I’m sure he is pissed he missed another one
04:10:31 <GO GIANT (3)> haha .. hopefully not for long
04:10:40 <ynpvisitor49> Go North Goggle!
04:10:55 <GO GIANT (3)> i expect all the dy geysers are unhappy it didnt wait a bit longer, I would be
04:10:58 <GO GIANT (3)> day
04:11:03 <ynpvisitor71> Unless this is the dreaded D, then you can forget Norris
04:11:05 <GO GIANT (3)> gazers
04:11:24 <GO GIANT (3)> i dont see any reason for htat .. but who knows
04:11:41 <GO GIANT (3)> there doesnt have to be one
04:11:43 <ynpvisitor49> regularity is OK even if you miss one
04:12:21 <GO GIANT (3)> true 49, regularity is the key and these intervals have been so close its amazing
04:12:52 <GO GIANT (3)> and when it did the long interval we knew it was happening as it didnt recover like it had before
04:13:37 <GO GIANT (3)> it wasnt like F&M which sucked people in for days hoping for another eruption
04:13:50 <ynpvisitor71> Morning will have some gazers perhaps with this going in the dark
04:14:09 <GO GIANT (3)> i hope so, still too early for Giant watch
04:14:28 <GO GIANT (3)> bbl
04:14:41 <Betty> see ya Graham
04:15:12 <GO GIANT (3)> i think 0423 is more likely Betty, that looks like where it starts to get fat .... but we will see later
04:16:12 <GO GIANT (3)> 0424 is still good tho, definately eruting then
04:23:55 <ynpvisitor999®> so... who cut the webcam cable?
04:24:38 <ynpvisitor999®> found it: Flash was disabled
04:41:53 <Betty> SC ie
04:44:42 <ynpvisitor49> from SB to SC . . .
04:44:48 <Betty> looks like Little Squirt is ie
04:45:01 <Betty> SD next?
04:50:03 <Betty> Steam in F&M area...
04:50:30 <Betty> or is it Giant area??
04:50:39 <ynpvisitor999®> that's Grotto-Giant area
04:50:47 <ynpvisitor999®> F&M is more to the right
04:51:04 <Betty> steam appeared more to the right first
04:51:54 <ynpvisitor999®> ah, that way round. Personally I think that would've been wind drift
04:52:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie static
04:52:21 <Betty> Personally I think wishful thinking :-D
04:52:31 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
04:52:55 <Betty> I need F&M to show up soon, or I´ll miss it
04:53:44 <ynpvisitor999®> I have very little hope for F&M, as it's doing very long, not-so-promising (if at all) cycles according to observers
04:54:13 <Betty> yes :-(
04:57:22 <ynpvisitor10> there he is now, hi Dave
04:57:24 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
04:57:38 <ynpvisitor999®> very uneventful night if you ask me
05:00:13 <Dave from B™> Morning :(
05:00:24 <Dave from B™> oops, did I mean Steamboat
05:00:50 <ynpvisitor10> :p
05:03:14 <Betty> Hi Dave. Means more family time for you ;-)
05:03:42 <Dave from B™> More time to catch bears
05:04:20 <Betty> you want to caatch a bear? if you are not fast enough it will catch you!
05:04:46 <ynpvisitor10> I hope the Bears don't react to you like geysers do
05:05:03 <Dave from B™> you mean, run away?:)
05:05:11 <ynpvisitor10> yep
05:05:13 <Betty> in fact it is only one geyser, No.10
05:05:36 <Dave from B™> Hope to catch Giant later this week
05:05:57 <Betty> yeah, go Giant
05:06:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
05:12:34 <ynpvisitor10> SB: Archer , Demetri S and Mara R for the start, Bill and Carol Beverly soon after: 0423
05:12:43 <ynpvisitor10> Demetri S and Mara R for the start, Bill and Carol Beverly soon after
05:14:17 <ynpvisitor49> HAPPY for Demetri and Mara - they sat it out after the June disturbance. and it didn't erupt then.
05:14:28 <Dave from B™> Congrats to Mara and Demitri!
05:18:39 <Betty> yes, congrats to Demetri and Mara :-D
05:24:17 <Dave from B™> A LOT of gazers have gotten their first Steamboat this year. I'm so happy for everyone! Betty, Micah.....lots of people still hunting for #1
05:26:02 <ynpvisitor49> I want to see into the future on how long this will last!
05:26:23 <ynpvisitor49> it's pretty amazing
05:27:15 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy
05:27:49 <Betty> time to head home, bbl
05:28:21 <GO GIANT (3)> yeah for Mara and Demetri
05:31:55 <ynpvisitor23> Big congrats to Demetri and Mara! :heart::thumbsup:
05:48:44 <Dave from B™> And, stop spreading the rumors.....I'm not related to Hazel Decker!
05:50:17 <ynpvisitor49> She saw several!
05:51:14 <Dave from B™> Didn't she wait 50 some days for her first?
05:54:22 <ynpvisitor49> that wasn'
05:54:40 <ynpvisitor49> that wasn't her first - by that time she knew it was worth waiting for :)
05:55:32 <Dave from B™> I did buy a bike hitch attachment for my car. Big D, please say away until November
06:03:58 <JimBoron> Good Morning Fluffy
06:08:16 <ynpvisitor10> The one I called Riverside is more in F&M's spot
06:08:58 <ynpvisitor10> but just could be wind drift
06:09:18 <Dave from B™> F&M is not due until tomorrow around 0900...it erupts when I'm on my way to the park
06:10:02 <ynpvisitor10> Ah yes I forgot, shame on me
06:10:42 <Dave from B™> Joe, are you going to go back this year?
06:12:16 <ynpvisitor10> I don't think so, but If a room opens up I may.
06:13:04 <Dave from B™> Rooms shouldn't be a problem this time of year. Talk to Eric when he's in the room
06:13:24 <ynpvisitor10> Ok, will d
06:13:30 <ynpvisitor10> do
06:23:56 <ynpvisitor10> looks like turban
06:47:10 <ynpvisitor10> turban again
06:47:57 <Kevin L™> Looks like a NoDoz® day for me.
07:06:42 <ynpvisitor10> Grand
07:06:58 <Kevin L™> A fluffy one
07:07:01 <ynpvisitor10> SC
07:07:13 <Kevin L™> Don't think we will see many spikes.
07:07:56 <JimBoron> Not this morning
07:08:26 <JimBoron> Don't need a wing gauge to say that the wind isn't blowing
07:08:43 <JimBoron> Ha - I meant "wind gauge", but a wing gauge might work too
07:13:40 <ynpvisitor10> from my recording it looked like turban was ~1 1/2 min before grand
07:14:25 <ynpvisitor10> Pause
07:14:52 <ynpvisitor10> 2nd
07:15:48 <JimBoron> Saw some water then
07:22:05 <ynpvisitor27> well, that's quite the Steamboat signature when it happens overnight
07:37:00 <ynpvisitor100> OF
07:37:18 <ynpvisitor10> not yet
07:37:19 <ynpvisitor100> oops
07:37:27 <ynpvisitor100> strong preplay
07:37:34 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that :)
07:37:35 <ynpvisitor10> yes
07:37:46 <ynpvisitor100> dome
07:39:51 <ynpvisitor10> now
07:40:00 <ynpvisitor100> :-D
07:40:13 <ynpvisitor999®> curtain!
07:41:10 <ynpvisitor100> great on static
07:41:59 <ynpvisitor100> what is that where the people stand right of OF?
07:42:13 <ynpvisitor100> saw water there
07:42:24 <ynpvisitor100> now they move
07:42:29 <ynpvisitor999®> those are the Anemone's
07:42:37 <ynpvisitor10> they are at beehive
07:42:58 <ynpvisitor10> sorry bh is left
07:43:06 <ynpvisitor100> beehive is right to OF in this view?
07:43:08 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely you'll be seeing Big Anemone. Little one is hard to see
07:43:20 <ynpvisitor100> ah, thanks so much
07:43:30 <ynpvisitor999®> This one should help: http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
07:43:52 <ynpvisitor100> really amazing
07:44:38 <ynpvisitor100> wow. you can see all those geysers on the cam?
07:45:12 <ynpvisitor999®> those are kinda the obvious ones, as there are many more visible from here
07:45:30 <ynpvisitor10> I need to paint an L and R on my shoes, or learn to read :)
07:45:39 <ynpvisitor100> glad I found this page
07:46:26 <ynpvisitor100> but now I have to run. Sure not my last visit here. Thanks to your help
07:46:38 <ynpvisitor10> You will learn a lot here, people always answer questions
07:46:53 <ynpvisitor999®> no problem, 100
07:58:11 <ynpvisitor...> Daisy
07:58:40 <ynpvisitor...> 0957 wc "ish"
07:58:49 <Kevin L™> Not leaving much for me, are you Joe?
07:59:26 <Kevin L™> At least I will have a 2b train at Chama.
08:06:17 <ynpvisitor999®> just noticed we haven't had a Plate eruption submitted to GT for a while now
08:14:26 <Kevin L™> I wonder if that is smoke or mist in the air
08:24:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie
08:24:53 <Kevin L™> Depression ie
08:26:16 <Kevin L™> Depression has been great this year.
08:26:50 <ynpvisitor27> not something you hear often :lol:
08:27:08 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:27:27 <Kevin L™> Something only a Gazer would understand! :)
08:33:19 <Kevin L™> Looks like Florence is going to miss Graham.
08:58:35 <JimBoron> But Florence is not going to miss Florence (SC)
08:59:24 <Kevin L™> I think Graham will get a bit wet though.
09:02:00 <Eric> Morning
09:02:37 <Kevin L™> No water in Morning today.
09:02:51 <Eric> :-D
09:03:30 <Kevin L™> It is going to be a long day.
09:04:55 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
09:06:19 <Kevin L™> Heading out to the dirt track to watch practice and testing after my shift today.
09:07:49 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP with restart 1027
09:15:42 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1115
09:15:51 <Kevin L™> Slow motion start
09:36:17 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
09:44:33 <Betty> morning all
09:44:49 <Kevin L™> hi
09:45:09 <Betty> hi Kevin
09:47:32 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:47:43 <Betty> evening DG
09:48:07 <ynpvisitor17> are you off to Vegas soon Betty?
09:48:33 <Betty> Sunday
09:48:55 <ynpvisitor17> I had it mixed up. I thought you arrived at Yellowstone Sunday
09:49:18 <Betty> no, Wednesday morning
09:49:57 <Betty> one week :-)
09:55:34 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... there's probably no relation here, but it seems this SB occurred at the start of a Porcelain Basin cycle (or Norris cycle, though no clear cycle end/start is visible temperature-wise)
10:01:49 <ynpvisitor17> does a 4 day interval signal a disturbance?
10:03:27 <Betty> hopefully not :-(
10:03:43 <ynpvisitor999®> depends on what happens in the next hours/days
10:06:44 <Dave from B™> 17, I don't believe so when 3 previous were 5 day intervals. Now, if had dropped down from 7-14 days, maybe
10:07:58 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems my 5d12h±24h worked this time, though early in the window
10:08:31 <ynpvisitor17> It knew you had plans to go Dave. It's psychic.
10:08:55 <ynpvisitor17> I do hope it continues on. Graham would not be happy if it stops.
10:10:31 <ynpvisitor999®> nice eruption spike on Tantalus gauge. It does suggest this eruption put out less water at its peak
10:11:25 <Betty> I would not be happy too if it stops!
10:12:06 <ynpvisitor49> Remember one eruption all blew into the trees and didn't even have water in the channel
10:12:31 <ynpvisitor49> what do you mean about the temperature/cycle?
10:15:38 <ynpvisitor999®> on the YVO logger you can see sometimes massive temperature drops (sometimes at times where those drops don't make much sense). This is especially visible on the Opalescent Spring logger, and sometimes on Porkchop logger
10:17:09 <ynpvisitor999®> when comparing, for example, the Opalescent Spring logger with the one on Constant, those regular temperature drops seem to coincide with drops on the Constant logger
10:18:36 <ynpvisitor999®> and almost invariably temperature drops on the Porkchop logger coincide with drops on all other loggers
10:18:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:18:38 <Betty> daisy
10:19:31 <ynpvisitor49> OK- I see 4 drops on Opalescent.
10:19:41 <ynpvisitor999®> before you ask, I do take into account day/night temperature variations
10:21:14 <Kevin L™> He also factors in the cosmic rays....
10:21:29 <ynpvisitor999®> drops are especially visible on the monthly graphs
10:22:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I do wonder if those almost daily Opalscent Spring drops coincide with shadows from nearby trees and such overcasting the pool
10:23:02 <Dave from B™> What about the moon cycle?:)
10:23:16 <ynpvisitor999®> you mean tidal effects?
10:23:22 <Dave from B™> yep
10:23:43 <ynpvisitor999®> depends on how large the body of water is below Norris
10:23:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
10:23:46 <Kevin L™> Castle
10:26:54 <ynpvisitor49> so you are saying there is a Porcelain Cycle but there might not be
10:27:55 <ynpvisitor999®> essentially
10:28:15 <ynpvisitor49> and steamboat was at the start of that, but there was no clear drop. See why I ask?
10:28:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm more on the side 'there seems not to be one, but maybe there is one'
10:32:06 <ynpvisitor49> so, you were just thinking out loud. Write it up to the listserv - could be an interesting conversation
10:32:39 <ynpvisitor100> No in basin Castle time. Wonder where everyone is?
10:32:46 <Kevin L™> Looks like Windows is doing another big update. :p Hard disk is running near 100% to windows systems.
10:33:04 <Kevin L™> Think they are at Giant.
10:33:12 <ynpvisitor999®> or at Fountain
10:33:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I think Fountain is the most likely one. Still a bit too early for Giant in my opinion
10:34:35 <ynpvisitor49> no cell signal at Fountain, it's like Norris :P
10:40:36 <Kevin L™> Think we can call this a major
10:41:47 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
10:41:58 <time for Castle> Kevin will be gone for a few days while he fixes his broken computer.
10:42:23 <Kevin L™> We all may have issues.
10:42:37 <time for Castle> I just say no to updates.
10:43:03 <time for Castle> Macs rule!
10:43:28 <Kevin L™> I have issues with them even on my iPad.
10:43:50 <time for Castle> Cause you allow updates.
10:44:08 <time for Castle> If it works, dont mess with it.
10:44:20 <ynpvisitor999®> my laptop has an SSD (plus a good processor, fast RAM, etc. etc.), so updates are performed rather fast (in the order of seconds rather than minutes with my old laptop)
10:44:51 <time for Castle> So your system can crash faster?
10:45:13 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
10:45:34 <ynpvisitor999®> it can go longer without showing a dreaded BSoD
10:47:08 <time for Castle> I don't get those. One feature apple left off the mac system. I guess it is popular feature with windowz users. Or they would stop including it.
10:47:54 <time for Castle> Well Castle made me happy, time to go do something else.
10:48:05 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun
10:50:59 <ynpvisitor999®> another Old Tardy today
10:51:58 <Kevin L™> Are you talking about Dave going to SB DG?
10:52:25 <ynpvisitor999®> you wish... :)
10:55:34 <Dave from B™> very funny Kevin:):)
10:56:42 <Kevin L™> Hey Dave, I am going to get to be a passenger in the parade truck in both the Truck race and the Xfinity race!
10:57:49 <Dave from B™> nice...can you take pics?
10:58:26 <Kevin L™> I think so. If so, I will get some.
11:01:39 <Dave from B™> I'm excited for you. I know you will have a great time.
11:02:28 <Kevin L™> It is also a staff pass so I have access to the garage.
11:18:33 <Dave from B™> Remember, #2 has a restraining order against you
11:18:57 <Kevin L™> :)
11:27:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I keep misreading 'Morning' as 'Mourning'...
11:28:12 <Kevin L™> That is what Dave is doing right now.
11:28:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I blame Mouth
11:31:25 <Dave from B™> Can you "mourn" if you knew it was going to happen?
11:31:42 <ynpvisitor999®> depends on the situation
11:34:52 <Kevin L™> It is going to be interesting to see the field report. The seismo looked pretty strong.
11:52:47 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
11:54:30 <ynpvisitor999®> SB note 0830 - 1200: " At 909 steamboat had a pause, the steam dropped and then restarted with water from the north vent for a few minutes. At 1124 water started coming out of north vent again to about tree line. It also had a brief pause during this and shot up some rocks as well. Around 1130 went back to mix water and steam from North vent (...)"
11:54:33 <ynpvisitor999®> At 909 steamboat had a pause, the steam dropped and then restarted with water from the north vent for a few minutes. At 1124 water started coming out of north vent again to about tree line. It also had a brief pause during this and shot up some rocks as well. Around 1130 went back to mix water and steam from North vent. Cistern spring was a few inches from the top when I got there and when I left
11:54:35 <ynpvisitor999®> "
11:54:48 <ynpvisitor999®> it had drained about 12-14".
11:55:13 <ynpvisitor999®> forgot that part didn't get included on Cistern
11:55:58 <Dave from B™> Thanks DG
12:07:56 <Betty> isn´t it time for Giant today or tomorrow? usually it is at the same day or 1 day after SB :-)
12:08:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I think tomorrow will be the first good chance on Giant
12:19:32 <Dave from B™> Doesn't that put SB in the lead for 2018 now?
12:19:41 <ynpvisitor999®> yep
12:21:54 <Betty> OF
12:22:19 <Kevin L™> Tough time starting
12:31:40 <Jeff in CT> Look, We're on Candid Camera!
12:32:13 <Kevin L™> Your are dating yourself Jeff!
12:33:47 <Jeff in CT> ROFL
12:34:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:37:17 <Kevin L™> This one is for you Jeff. One of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbhBNNw_c1Y
12:39:43 <Jeff in CT> Good one, Kevin
12:42:12 <Kevin L™> Back when TV was fun to watch.
12:43:12 <Jeff in CT> and didn't require parental supervision *sigh*
13:11:20 <Kevin L™> Lion
13:12:03 <ynpvisitor17> people running from Lion
13:18:28 <Dave from B™> Good evening Graham
13:18:42 <Kevin L™> Looks like Grand snuck in there
13:18:53 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
13:19:03 <GO GIANT (3)> hello
13:19:13 <GO GIANT (3)> when do you leave tomorrow Dave?
13:19:14 <Betty> hi Graham
13:19:29 <Dave from B™> Streak of 5 consecutive intervals under 6 hours ends
13:20:17 <Dave from B™> We're leaving around 0900 via Beartooth, Roosevelt, Canyon to Lake Lodge cabin
13:20:29 <GO GIANT (3)> its still going Dave
13:20:49 <GO GIANT (3)> had to go by 1606
13:21:10 <ynpvisitor17> what had to?
13:21:13 <GO GIANT (3)> oh, sorry .. i am doing the 5 in 24h check :)
13:21:22 <GO GIANT (3)> not the under 6
13:21:27 <Dave from B™> no problem
13:22:08 <GO GIANT (3)> that should be a nice drive with a touch of fall on the pass i bet
13:22:48 <Kevin L™> Got your umbrella Graham?
13:23:07 <Dave from B™> I'm really looking forward to being a tourist in the park
13:23:26 <GO GIANT (3)> the worst rain from Florence is supposed to be Mon/Tue here now
13:23:30 <ynpvisitor17> say that after your tenth bison jam or fourth elk jam
13:23:58 <ynpvisitor17> you'll be wishing for geyser basins
13:24:15 <ynpvisitor66> Dave - have you driven up to the Lake Butte overlook?
13:24:15 <GO GIANT (3)> its been very rainy all summer, we have flood watches all the time now when it rains
13:24:23 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
13:24:24 <Kevin L™> 2nd
13:24:46 <Betty> wow
13:24:46 <ynpvisitor17> hk must be at the helm, no info yet
13:24:51 <Dave from B™> 17, it is mid Sept not July/Aug. We are in no hurry. Have cameras, scopes, binocs, field guides...I'm ready!
13:24:51 <Betty> a good one
13:25:00 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd done
13:25:14 <ynpvisitor999®> good, but short
13:25:15 <ynpvisitor17> jams are at peak unfortunately yet I wish you well
13:25:25 <JimBoron> Lag came in handy - nice 2nd opening salvo
13:25:28 <Kevin L™> Come on #3
13:26:07 <ynpvisitor17> 2 and done
13:26:16 <Dave from B™> 17, I appreciate the info. I'll bring my patience with me
13:26:17 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it
13:26:32 <ynpvisitor999®> -2Q I think
13:26:47 <ynpvisitor17> do you stay at Lake for the trip or moving about?
13:28:22 <Dave from B™> 2 nights at Lake Lodge cabins and 1 at OFI Old House
13:28:40 <ynpvisitor17> oh you are coming to the basin
13:28:47 <Dave from B™> So, Saturday will be a geyser day...do you hear that Giant or Morning?:)
13:29:18 <ynpvisitor17> well you will have to pick a spot
13:29:18 <GO GIANT (3)> maybe Giant will wait till Sunday morning
13:29:20 <Dave from B™> We may go to Fairy Falls
13:29:25 <ynpvisitor17> no Fountain news today
13:29:40 <ynpvisitor17> with the hordes?
13:29:46 <Dave from B™> Sunday morning is good as well but I will need to get back early so I can get ready to leave again on Tuesday for 8 nights
13:30:13 <ynpvisitor17> what is that? Bringing your son to school?
13:30:18 <Dave from B™> 17, we will at least go to the overlook. If it is busy, we'll try to have a plan B
13:30:28 <Dave from B™> Yep, Parker to school trip
13:30:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Fountain 1408
13:30:47 <Kevin L™> Planning for another traffic jam Dave?
13:30:52 <Dave from B™> Graham, what is your eta to OF?
13:30:52 <ynpvisitor999®> no Morning, details soon
13:30:57 <ynpvisitor17> hk did a write up, beyond the overlook, not near as much traffic, beyond Fairy falls, none to Imperial
13:31:14 <Dave from B™> Thanks
13:31:39 <Dave from B™> I know our main hike of the trip will be from Lewis to Shoshone...11 miles round trip
13:31:43 <ynpvisitor17> on his blog
13:32:02 <ynpvisitor17> I hope you have nice weather and good boots
13:32:29 <GO GIANT (3)> no Grand post ... someone should post it
13:33:01 <ynpvisitor17> it was ie when Kevin saw it
13:33:14 <GO GIANT (3)> ftn report, no Morning. 31m duration, getting better
13:33:17 <ynpvisitor17> hk will eventually post
13:33:17 <Kevin L™> Last hike I took that long was about 30 years ago through the Narrows at Zion. Thought I was going to die!
13:33:50 <BSK> Fairy Fall is an easier hike than The Narrows - and no heat.
13:34:08 <Dave from B™> My brother in law who is joining us did the 35-40 mile Bechler hike with me 11 years ago
13:34:11 <ynpvisitor17> we are talking Lewis to Shoshone now
13:34:27 <ynpvisitor17> you did Bechler in a day?
13:34:27 <BSK> I just "caught up" to that. That one I can't speak to - yet. :)
13:34:54 <Dave from B™> Shoshone via Lewis is pretty flat. Good habitat for moose
13:35:04 <Dave from B™> We did the hike about 25 years ago
13:35:25 <ynpvisitor17> when you did Bechler did you camp or do it in a day?
13:35:45 <Dave from B™> 5 nights
13:35:51 <ynpvisitor17> perfect time of year for that hike
13:35:53 <Dave from B™> It was a blast
13:36:08 <ynpvisitor17> and good, that makes sense. Such a great place.
13:42:26 <Betty> time for counting sheep. night all
13:42:35 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:42:40 <Kevin L™> Night
13:42:49 <GO GIANT (3)> dont dream of geysers, they will keep you awake
13:44:06 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:47:43 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1546
13:47:48 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out. I'll be back on Monday...hopefully catching a Biggie, Grand or BH. Have a great weekend everyone!
13:47:57 <ynpvisitor999®> same to you, Dave
13:48:48 <Kevin L™> Good luck Dave. Maybe SB on your last day?
13:49:45 <Dave from B™> We will take a peek on Sunday...watch some minor activity at least
13:50:12 <GO GIANT (3)> See you Dave
13:51:11 <Dave from B™> Graham, what ios your OF eta on Saturday?
13:52:10 <GO GIANT (3)> probably 5pm
13:52:22 <GO GIANT (3)> maybe a little earlier
13:52:33 <GO GIANT (3)> so Giant later would be nice
13:52:40 <Dave from B™> Thanks, we'll look for you in the evening
13:52:54 <GO GIANT (3)> ok. have a great trip to Lake
13:53:01 <Dave from B™> I'll probably see you out at Grand
13:54:51 <GO GIANT (3)> yep maybe if its due
13:55:00 <GO GIANT (3)> and Morning on Sunday
13:58:51 <Emily> hi
13:59:03 <Kevin L™> Hi
13:59:07 <Emily> I see Mara and Demitri got it
13:59:44 <Kevin L™> Left Lion and BH for you Graham
14:00:26 <ynpvisitor999®> G2Q | 11m18s
14:02:24 <GO GIANT (3)> yep, good news gor them
14:02:36 <GO GIANT (3)> need to drag Mivah up there
14:03:15 <GO GIANT (3)> it might scare him tho
14:03:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Another Old Tardy eruption!
14:03:35 <Emily> because its rare but its not 2 feet
14:04:17 <GO GIANT (3)> just think of 100 Little Anemonies one on top of the other
14:05:07 <ynpvisitor999®> interval's less than 3 hours. Hopefully a good omen for the rest of the group
14:05:15 <GO GIANT (3)> he likes rocks, but i think he likes them motionless and underfoot
14:05:29 <GO GIANT (3)> flying rocks will be too confusing
14:08:01 <Emily> if its at night the rocks can hide
14:08:18 <GO GIANT (3)> nice to get a second OT. may be having more but Grand intervals are so short there are few people hanging around there
14:08:48 <Kevin L™> Off to the races....
14:09:24 <GO GIANT (3)> bye KL
14:10:31 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Kevin. Have fun
14:22:27 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Aurum's happy now that Kevin left - 1619 ns
14:57:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:34:33 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Enjoy SC, Lion (if it continues) and watching the treeline.

16:23:04 <GO GIANT (3)> her own page .. its from the distance...maybe theres a closeup too
16:23:18 <GO GIANT (3)> Clarkes video is awesome
16:24:54 <ynpvisitor106> at least I can guarantee being dry this time
16:25:23 <GO GIANT (3)> go get a bucket of water
16:25:30 <GO GIANT (3)> or a hose
16:28:44 <ynpvisitor17> another short indy
16:28:50 <ynpvisitor112> There is your hose
16:29:29 <ynpvisitor17> having trouble getting going
16:29:39 <GO GIANT (3)> 10 or more min ... slightly short
16:29:51 <GO GIANT (3)> unless we missed a few minutes. Betty wasnt here to spot it
16:30:04 <ynpvisitor106> that isn't short
16:30:09 <ynpvisitor106> 2 minutes is short
16:30:26 <ynpvisitor17> OK, short in height today though
16:30:35 <ynpvisitor17> now climbing a bit
16:30:55 <ynpvisitor17> So you went home Kitt?
16:31:12 <ynpvisitor106> SB went in the dark and yes I came home
16:31:17 <ynpvisitor17> SB going overnight upset you?
16:31:38 <ynpvisitor17> I bet your house is happy to see you
16:31:50 <ynpvisitor106> only if you want to see a daylight eruption
16:32:00 <ynpvisitor17> nah, no one wants that
16:32:13 <ynpvisitor17> ask Graham, he is looking forward to night eruptions
16:32:29 <GO GIANT (3)> i have never seen Giant or SB at night :)
16:32:35 <ynpvisitor106> how long is Mr. Go Giant in?
16:32:44 <ynpvisitor17> 2 weeks
16:32:45 <GO GIANT (3)> 2 weeks
16:33:20 <ynpvisitor17> when do you return?
16:33:27 <ynpvisitor106> well enjoy your first portion, since the Ham's closes on the 23rd
16:33:35 <GO GIANT (3)> hardly anyone can complain about this years geyser gazing
16:33:42 <ynpvisitor106> Don't know if I will
16:33:49 <ynpvisitor17> he'll live without Ham's
16:33:58 <ynpvisitor17> I thought you had return plans
16:34:17 <GO GIANT (3)> oh, i thought it closed earlier. nice
16:34:19 <ynpvisitor106> I just came back from them
16:34:27 <ynpvisitor17> oh OK
16:35:00 <ynpvisitor17> did you have to wait long for construction at Fishing Bridge?
16:35:04 <GO GIANT (3)> last year i did Snow Lodge quite a bit because Hame opened too late
16:35:06 <ynpvisitor106> Fountain open 9 to 5 and store open until 6
16:35:21 <GO GIANT (3)> thanks
16:35:27 <ynpvisitor106> no
16:35:34 <ynpvisitor17> good deal
16:35:35 <GO GIANT (3)> that means bathrooms too. is the gas station bathroom open now?
16:35:41 <ynpvisitor106> no
16:35:57 <ynpvisitor17> I don't think they will get it open this season
16:36:05 <ynpvisitor106> nope
16:36:16 <GO GIANT (3)> well that was nice
16:36:28 <ynpvisitor106> they are working on moving the pit toilet
16:36:29 <ynpvisitor17> that was. We still need a new cam cover
16:36:53 <ynpvisitor106> the cam was moved to the roof of the Inn, so no one will be able to clean it
16:37:02 <ynpvisitor17> what??
16:37:15 <ynpvisitor17> this cam is in the same place
16:37:46 <ynpvisitor17> no plans for it to move that I have heard
16:38:10 <ynpvisitor17> Lotus posted BH major
16:38:26 <GO GIANT (3)> nice
16:38:27 <ynpvisitor106> be happy she posted it
16:38:35 <ynpvisitor106> there aren't many gazers in
16:38:41 <GO GIANT (3)> its always a major ... we just dont pot it
16:39:02 <ynpvisitor17> Time to go.
16:39:26 <ynpvisitor106> people also need to watch what they flag
16:39:55 <ynpvisitor106> two Fountain posts were flagged and disappeared
16:39:57 <GO GIANT (3)> i saw Udo flgged SB this morning
16:40:00 <ynpvisitor106> guess what
16:40:31 <ynpvisitor106> it was probably a Morning/Fountain duel
16:40:46 <ynpvisitor106> in which case Fountain can last for more than an hour
16:41:52 <ynpvisitor106> in the case of a trifecta, it seems to me Fountain can last for up to 3 hours
16:42:23 <GO GIANT (3)> i think there was one where there was an observation it was not ie but i dont remember
16:42:54 <GO GIANT (3)> agtee with the timing comments tho, 1h and 3h are common for dual and trifecta
16:43:25 <ynpvisitor106> there was a Fountain post followed by a double steam cloud post an hour later
16:43:45 <GO GIANT (3)> i dont think i saw that
16:43:47 <ynpvisitor106> Why did Udo flag SB?
16:44:23 <GO GIANT (3)> he didnt like the time posted as it was i think 3 inutes early
16:44:46 <GO GIANT (3)> the E time was changed ... it had been noted as too early
16:45:45 <GO GIANT (3)> thein-park and seismo signature start are the same time
16:46:01 <GO GIANT (3)> glad Mara and Demetri saw it
16:46:43 <ynpvisitor106> well enjoy the evening, I am back to unpacking
16:46:58 <GO GIANT (3)> bye Kitt
17:06:51 <GO GIANT (3)> dcome
17:22:22 <GO GIANT (3)> elk
17:25:43 <ynpvisitor112> Does it have a bugle?
17:26:31 <GO GIANT (3)> must be good grass, i dont think shes lifted her head yet
17:26:34 <GO GIANT (3)> or he
17:29:04 <ynpvisitor112> Maybe it is a moose
17:29:20 <GO GIANT (3)> ooohhhhh
17:29:47 <GO GIANT (3)> they saw one at Ftn, right?
17:30:27 <ynpvisitor112> I hadn't heard that.
17:30:42 <GO GIANT (3)> there was a non geyser note
17:31:00 <ynpvisitor112> I have seen two between Lion and Grand.
17:31:27 <GO GIANT (3)> I guess it was a Belk
17:32:04 <GO GIANT (3)> sure didnt look that big
17:32:17 <ynpvisitor112> Well we got our nickel's worth anyway.
17:32:53 <GO GIANT (3)> 1708 yesterday from Kitt While waiting for Fountain at the overlook, we saw a cow moose walking, then running through the meadow on the other side of the road headed east.
17:32:59 <ynpvisitor112> When was the moose? I didn't see a note.
17:33:44 <ynpvisitor112> OK, I missed it yesterday.
17:33:48 <ynpvisitor112> Sprinkler
