06:45:19 <GO GIANT(1)> sunrise at Lake is pretty
06:48:35 <ynpvisitorCC> Graham are you home or at the airport?
06:48:52 <GO GIANT(1)> home, leave tomorrow morning
06:50:26 <ynpvisitorCC> just curious whether you changed your flight
06:52:05 <GO GIANT(1)> no, DC should be fine. Interesting one will be SLC to BZN - that plan is supposed to be coming from Charlotte
06:52:35 <ynpvisitorCC> Dep
06:53:10 <ynpvisitorCC> You could always rent a car from SLC
06:53:47 <GO GIANT(1)> looks like Charlotte isn't getting much rain, just 25mph winds which isn't bad. their rain comes later Sat
06:54:46 <GO GIANT(1)> if it gets worse i expect the airlines will pull the planes out early anyway, so still good chance of getting to BZN ok
06:55:19 <ynpvisitorCC> You should make a SB eruption this trip
06:56:25 <GO GIANT(1)> hope so, will get there sometime Sunday and wait
07:00:23 <GO GIANT(1)> hope it doesnt go long with my arrival
07:30:41 <GO GIANT(1)> F&M overnight
07:31:23 <GO GIANT(1)> 18 18 15 3 is the new count
07:31:35 <GO GIANT(1)> SB and F&M tied again
07:48:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern's refilling already
07:48:45 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe already at overflow by now
08:08:59 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
08:14:09 <ynpvisitor34> `8min
08:14:36 <Jimbo Chromium> Thanks
08:18:24 <Jimbo Chromium> I guess 1b is all there is
08:18:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini, Riverside ie
08:19:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C | 8m52s
08:20:51 <ynpvisitor37> Good plumes this morning. They match the map :)
08:21:33 <Kevin L™> Another long BH interval I see.
08:32:07 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
08:34:36 <Kevin L™> Oblong?
08:34:58 <ynpvisitor999®> personally I'd say Vent and Turban
08:36:03 <Kevin L™> Could be. Pretty big plume for a bit there. Low temps and hight humidity make those though.
08:40:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto 0837 ns
08:41:30 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see a Giant cloud this morning.
08:41:54 <ynpvisitor112> a giant Giant cloud?
08:42:14 <ynpvisitor34> It would be really really big
08:43:41 <ynpvisitor34> Ginormous comes to mind
08:46:30 <Kevin L™> Anybody know what feature this is?
08:47:50 <ynpvisitor999®> do you know by any chance in what basin this picture was taken?
08:48:37 <GO GIANT (1)> FYI Joe's 0122 OF time should probaby be a wc time?
08:48:40 <Kevin L™> It looks like the Upper Basin. BW in the background.
08:49:42 <ynpvisitor999®> that's an early OF
08:50:07 <ynpvisitor34> it is now wc thanks Graham
08:50:36 <ynpvisitor37> 0849 wc +/-
08:50:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I have it as early 0849
08:51:09 <ynpvisitor37> Sounds good
08:52:07 <fishynp> Kevin L, I think that is the runoff of Doublet Pool?
08:52:42 <GO GIANT (1)> thats what i was thinking too
08:52:48 <ynpvisitor71> or down from Plume
08:52:55 <Kevin L™> It may be. His previous were of Doublet
08:53:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look on Maps. I really couldn't tell what it was, even though it may have been UGB
08:53:49 <ynpvisitor34> OF actually 084856
08:54:34 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough :)
08:54:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll delete mine, so yours will be the primary
08:55:12 <ynpvisitor34> just change yours
08:55:42 <ynpvisitor999®> could've been possible too
08:56:03 <lc> Graham, you don't have to worry about f&m
08:56:35 <GO GIANT (1)> for a few days .. its back in play now. could go short if it wants
08:57:34 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be Doublet Pool on that image, Kevin:,-110.82965,3a,15.5y,342.23h,85.07t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s13rccjcSdW-e4_0MSEiQug!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
08:58:48 <ynpvisitor34> next daisy 0948 +/-5min
09:02:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate?
09:02:53 <Kevin L™> Looks like it could be
09:02:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I can see some water at the bottom of that column, not entirely sure though
09:03:41 <ynpvisitor999®> zoom in on it would be helpful
09:10:08 <lc> ge's 9/1/18 Giant.
09:16:37 <GO GIANT (1)> its a good video
09:16:54 <GO GIANT (1)> looks like you had a good trip lc?
09:18:57 <lc> Very good
09:19:18 <lc> SB and 2 Giants
09:19:41 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a success to me.
09:19:48 <GO GIANT (1)> wow thats quite a trip
09:19:54 <lc> best year I have ever had
09:20:17 <Kevin L™> Daisy
09:20:25 <lc> hope they can keep going for you Graham.
09:20:33 <Kevin L™> Nope
09:21:03 <GO GIANT (1)> thanks lc, i hope so too. looking forward to reading the Cistern refill reports
09:21:05 <ynpvisitor999®> what a lovely little sput, that Giant
09:21:36 <lc> you may not have a lot of gazers to help you
09:22:15 <lc> I think SteveO will be back late in your trip
09:22:17 <GO GIANT (1)> yeah a lot of people have left. not sure if HK and SUzanne leave thsi weekend?
09:23:04 <lc> I think they may leave after the next Giant.
09:23:32 <lc> Kitt may be back at some point.
09:23:48 <GO GIANT (1)> they are having a great year too ... then theres another SB opportunity .......
09:24:24 <lc> that may keep them around a few more days.
09:24:45 <Jimbo Chromium> I think I'll watch that Giant video on my big screen TV later
09:24:50 <GO GIANT (1)> lets see whan Giant goes .... would be nice for it to settle on short intervals
09:26:06 <lc> yes it would, and there is Morning. ???
09:26:44 <ynpvisitor101> Fantastic video LC
09:27:23 <lc> ge did a great job.
09:27:27 <GO GIANT (1)> Morningis being neglected ... but if i get a fay ff from Giant and SB I will check it out
09:28:12 <lc> Dave W. got a great shot of Morning.
09:29:40 <lc> bbl, time for breakfast.
09:33:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
09:33:57 <Kevin L™> Now watch BH go when they head up to Lion.
09:39:14 <Jimbo Chromium> What was the BH prediction?
09:39:47 <ynpvisitor34> 0200~
09:40:47 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
09:40:53 <GO GIANT (1)> I dont think I will be waiting for BH .. just leap into action if I get a text
09:41:39 <Time for BH> Kevin fixed his computer after the update.
09:41:43 <Jimbo Chromium> Ouch on that BH prediction
09:42:46 <GO GIANT (1)> Grand is having its longest run of 5 in 24h
09:42:59 <GO GIANT (1)> longest this year anyway
09:43:07 <ynpvisitor999®> yet still no 5 Grands on one day :(
09:43:19 <GO GIANT (1)> it could try in 2 or 3 days
09:43:25 <GO GIANT (1)> its waiting for me
09:43:49 <GO GIANT (1)> not that I am going to be there for them
09:45:08 <Kevin L™> Computer worked. I was just out to the races.
09:45:56 <Kevin L™> Going to get to ride in a truck on the parade laps with the drivers on tonight's and tomorrow's races.
09:46:06 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
09:46:18 <GO GIANT (1)> sweet .. have fun
09:46:45 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a short interval for SC. Only 1h13m
09:47:20 <Time for BH> You don't get to go pick up parts after wrecks?
09:47:20 <GO GIANT (1)> bet thats going to draw a crowd of gazers :)
09:47:58 <Time for BH> SC is due for a major!
09:48:37 <lc> I did hear SC called one time on the radio.
09:48:56 <lc> got a few boos
09:49:56 <lc> btw, Pat S. got a bison, totaled her truck.
09:50:00 <ynpvisitor999®> would've been a different story if it did 20+ feet I guess
09:50:09 <ynpvisitor26> Is Indy going?
09:50:25 <Time for BH> What about the Bison/
09:50:29 <Time for BH> ?
09:50:31 <ynpvisitor999®> doesn't look like it, 26
09:50:41 <ynpvisitor999®> zoom on BH wouldn't be that bad though
09:50:57 <lc> she hit a bison just south of Midway.
09:51:06 <ynpvisitor26> Thnx. By Castle so couldn’t tell. Grotto is off.
09:51:33 <Time for BH> I thought there was enough moon to be able to see them.
09:52:06 <Time for BH> One more good reason to put reflectors on Bison Butts.
09:52:07 <ynpvisitor26> Ok
09:52:12 <lc> it was about 0530, not much moon.
09:52:12 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
09:52:58 <Time for BH> That is why people hate me when I drive in the park at night. I drive slow.
09:53:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I did notice one thing as of late (probably more coincidental than SC connected with OF), and that is that SC tends to erupt usually about half an hour before or after OF
09:54:01 <ynpvisitor999®> not really between that, or just after or before that half an hour
09:54:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
09:56:33 <Kevin L™> I know Paul S hit one in the same area years back and totaled his car. He was driving slow and still didn't see it. He called them a "black hole". That is why I hate driving at night in the park.
09:57:04 <GO GIANT (1)> OF +/- 45m nearly always works :)
09:57:37 <GO GIANT (1)> lc - saw Pats pictue on Facebook, nasty but Walt did a good job protecting her
09:58:14 <Kevin L™> How did the bison come out?
09:58:22 <lc> I saw pictures, she was pretty lucky.
09:58:38 <lc> it did limp away.
09:58:43 <GO GIANT (1)> rangers checked and said the bison was ok
09:59:21 <Jimbo Chromium> Anecdote: I was on an extended trip to Denver, and visited Great Sand Dunes NM on the weekend. On my way back, I took Highway 50, which parallels the upper Arkansas River.
09:59:21 <GO GIANT (1)> at lest not a safety risk ..... may end up as bear or wolf chow tho if it has an injury
09:59:56 <Jimbo Chromium> Before I drove it, I got gas in Salida, and asked the attendant if Highway 50 was dangerous (it was nighttime).
10:00:18 <Jimbo Chromium> She said "Not too bad, but the deer will jump right out in front of you with no warning."
10:00:21 <Jimbo Chromium> I drove slow.
10:00:26 <Time for BH> Black hole is a good way to describe them.
10:01:11 <lc> we went to Norris that morning, did drive slow.
10:01:19 <GO GIANT (1)> there was one standing on the entrance road when i drove in at night in May. fortunately it didnt move so i went round it
10:03:17 <lc> Kevin, I did not see Aurum up close.
10:03:41 <GO GIANT (1)> so worst trip ever lc?
10:04:22 <lc> did have a walk-up Artemisia.
10:04:59 <Kevin L™> That is surprising. It did have a few short intervals.
10:05:44 <Kevin L™> Nice on Artemesia
10:07:55 <lc> we did know the last couple of eruptions and a few people had been there a while, so Steve and me walked up from f&m, got there about 4 or 5 minutes.
10:08:07 <lc> before the flood.
10:11:38 <lc> gtg, bbl.
10:35:15 <Time for BH> Well, enjoy BH, got to go.
10:37:19 <ynpvisitor999®> bye
10:42:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
10:42:48 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:42:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:42:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:42:50 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:42:51 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:44:11 <Eric> Nice
10:44:19 <Eric> thx for the txt
10:44:29 <ynpvisitor1111> Time for BH had bad timing!!
10:45:09 <ynpvisitor1111> BH looks lonely today
10:45:13 <ynpvisitor34> yw, Eric
10:52:22 <ynpvisitor34> Lion
10:52:54 <ynpvisitor999®> not too happy with the 1h19m interval, though. Could mean end of series
10:53:33 <Eric> Could mean middle of series :-P
10:54:27 <ynpvisitor999®> please contain yourself, Bee. Need to get this Lion's time. Priorities, y'know?
10:54:43 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
10:54:46 <Eric> BH
10:54:52 <ynpvisitor999®> what did I tell you again...?
10:55:26 <Eric> Bee doesn't listen very well.
10:55:51 <Eric> Nice tall eruption though.
10:56:10 <ynpvisitor999®> nope... especially in autumn and winter it behaves badly
10:56:38 <ynpvisitor999®> this one looks very fine
11:24:13 <GO GIANT (1)> that was a nice lunch. did i miss anything?
11:24:35 <Kevin L™> Nothing special.
11:25:00 <GO GIANT (1)> i see that
11:25:03 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe a few LC's, but that's more-or-less it, bascially
11:25:20 <ynpvisitor999®> also some other sput. Not that important, though
11:31:09 <GO GIANT (1)> strong GHP
11:31:19 <GO GIANT (1)> but not strong enough
11:37:02 <Betty> hi all
11:37:13 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
11:37:21 <Kevin L™> Hi
11:37:24 <Betty> evening DG
11:37:25 <GO GIANT (1)> hi Betty. are you packed?
11:37:37 <Betty> hi Kevin and Graham
11:37:47 <Betty> hi Bill
11:38:07 <Kevin L™> Did you get that new freezer?
11:38:16 <Betty> I put things together, final packig is tomorrow
11:38:22 <Betty> no
11:38:49 <Betty> I made a cake and some Marmelade
11:38:54 <GO GIANT (1)> hi Bill. Thanks for keeping the geysers erupting
11:38:57 <Bill> Hello!
11:39:01 <Bill> I do what i can.
11:39:05 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Bill
11:39:15 <Betty> :-)
11:39:42 <GO GIANT (1)> how was the ice cream betty?
11:39:56 <Betty> yummy
11:40:16 <Kevin L™> German ice cream is wonderful.
11:41:41 <Betty> if you believe it or not, I kept some thing in the freezer, and things are still frozen
11:43:18 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder how Cistern is looking
11:43:22 <Betty> so I was able to cook things
11:46:45 <Kevin L™> How big is the freezer?
11:53:48 <Betty> only 3 drawer
11:54:47 <Betty> mostly fruits like cherries and plums
11:55:12 <Kevin L™> Not that big then. Mine is 6 feet high and 3 feet wide
11:55:49 <Betty> no. It´s combined with the fridge
11:56:58 <Kevin L™> That makes it worse
11:57:05 <Betty> I´m really glad it did not happen while I was in US
11:58:11 <Betty> I have another fridge for beverages which I use at parties only. So it is not too bad
11:58:42 <Kevin L™> So your fridge is dead too?
11:58:53 <Eric> If we don't have another GHP before 1800, look for a giant tonight :-D
11:59:01 <Betty> it was not much left in the fridge anyway, for I was emptying it for the holiday
12:03:34 <Betty> I cannot put it to the plug. the ELCB worked
12:09:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Sawmill was within an inch of overflow @ 0837
12:12:56 <GO GIANT (1)> I prefer 1800 tomorrow Eric
12:14:29 <GO GIANT (1)> of course if it goes tonight its one less thing to preoccupy me
12:14:59 <GO GIANT (1)> Cistern not yet at OF
12:15:03 <ynpvisitor7> Slower Cistern refill this time
12:15:47 <ynpvisitor7> Giant will be Graham’s go to spot unless it goes before his arrival
12:17:14 <Kevin L™> And you thought bears were bad:
12:18:33 <ynpvisitor999®> it's the second day of Cistern refilling, so not too bad. Would've liked if it were full already, though
12:18:39 <GO GIANT (1)> not necessarily slower .... about 2 days after the prior eruption it was down 6 feet. looks faster to me
12:19:22 <Eric> Yep, we have a lot of cougars around here. Interesting that one would attack a hiker at this time of year.
12:19:30 <GO GIANT (1)> CB's report was only 2d5h post eruptive
12:20:15 <Kevin L™> You would think they would keep a better watch on those Washington State students Eric.
12:20:31 <Eric> Haha :-P
12:27:08 <Betty> Daisy
12:27:52 <Betty> hey Eric, did not see you sneak in :-)
12:30:59 <Kevin L™> We have some down here every once in a while. There was one feeding on pets here about a year or so ago.
12:32:00 <GO GIANT (1)> ftn d=33m ..... nice duration
12:46:41 <Eric> Pets are good food :-)
12:49:51 <Kevin L™> I know coyotes like the cats that people let run around here.
12:57:45 <ynpvisitor17> Is that a Ranger talk? Big crowd for OF being so far away
12:58:05 <ynpvisitor17> yep, found the ranger
13:01:22 <Betty> Grotto?
13:08:40 <ynpvisitor17> odd that there is no in basin Grotto time
13:09:08 <Betty> yep
13:09:49 <GO GIANT (1)> there was the earlier one. maybe after the strong hot period people left .. although Brian was at Grand
13:10:20 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe he's watching the Sawmill complex today?
13:11:37 <ynpvisitor999®> still too early for Grand, maybe Rift delays it by a bit this time
13:12:21 <ynpvisitor34> Rift, Steve Favor 1257
13:28:52 <GO GIANT (1)> of
13:31:10 <Betty> short
13:32:50 <Betty> LC ie
13:34:13 <Jimbo Chromium> LC looks quite energetic today
13:34:46 <Betty> maybe we get a major :-D
13:52:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:53:14 <ynpvisitor999®> tall
13:53:20 <Betty> yeah
13:53:40 <Betty> powerful start
13:54:19 <ynpvisitor999®> SC might be soon
13:55:08 <Betty> seems it is ie
13:55:18 <ynpvisitor999®> 1354
13:55:37 <GO GIANT (1)> keeps the short grand intervals going
13:55:48 <Betty> only steam
13:55:55 <ynpvisitor999®> some water
13:56:15 <Betty> yep
13:56:20 <ynpvisitor999®> now's the fun part
14:02:13 <ynpvisitor34> 2nd
14:02:28 <ynpvisitor999®> 10m - looks like a 2nd start
14:04:07 <Kevin L™> Nice to get a 2nd with that duration
14:05:33 <ynpvisitor999®> G2Q | 10m15s
14:30:53 <Betty> LC
14:36:02 <Betty> OF
14:41:22 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a long long - ~5m01s before I couldn't see water/spray anymore

15:55:14 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
15:55:25 <GO GIANT (1)> i wonder how long Giant will wait for its next hot period .. not unusual to have a gap before it erupts
15:55:44 <GO GIANT (1)> hum, i have room in my case ... what did I forget?
16:00:14 <ynpvisitor112> flashlight
16:00:23 <ynpvisitor112> car cover
16:00:29 <ynpvisitor112> elk repellent
16:00:34 <GO GIANT (1)> nope, i have 3 flashlights. no car cover
16:00:48 <GO GIANT (1)> haha i saw the elk video. stupid people not moving away
16:01:57 <GO GIANT (1)> "when wildlife approaches you, its YOUR responsibility to move away from it"
16:10:53 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1609
16:11:25 <GO GIANT (1)> i didnt see any report from Dave on the thermal activity at Lake?
16:17:35 <lc> gtg, Graham have a great trip.
16:17:53 <lc> may the geysers be kind to you.
16:18:00 <ynpvisitor999®> bye lc
16:18:18 <lc> bye
16:25:08 <GO GIANT (1)> thanks lc
16:53:57 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching SC, Aurum and the treeline.
16:55:01 <GO GIANT (1)> buye DG
16:55:16 <GO GIANT (1)> look forward t oall the UGB overnight times
16:55:27 <GO GIANT (1)> and seismo reports
17:09:17 <GO GIANT (1)> medium hot period
17:09:31 <GO GIANT (1)> thet will keep peeps out there late waiting for the next one
17:10:06 <GO GIANT (1)> maybe ... or the clouds will push people away
17:12:22 <GO GIANT (1)> Giant is still 14h before its shortest interval of the year
17:13:17 <GO GIANT (1)> it could go tonight, but all the intervals have been longer so far
