04:45:19 <GO GIANT(1)> sunrise at Lake is pretty
04:48:35 <ynpvisitorCC> Graham are you home or at the airport?
04:48:52 <GO GIANT(1)> home, leave tomorrow morning
04:50:26 <ynpvisitorCC> just curious whether you changed your flight
04:52:05 <GO GIANT(1)> no, DC should be fine. Interesting one will be SLC to BZN - that plan is supposed to be coming from Charlotte
04:52:35 <ynpvisitorCC> Dep
04:53:10 <ynpvisitorCC> You could always rent a car from SLC
04:53:47 <GO GIANT(1)> looks like Charlotte isn't getting much rain, just 25mph winds which isn't bad. their rain comes later Sat
04:54:46 <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
04:55:19 <ynpvisitorCC> You should make a SB eruption this trip
04:56:25 <GO GIANT(1)> hope so, will get there sometime Sunday and wait
05:00:23 <GO GIANT(1)> hope it doesnt go long with my arrival
05:30:41 <GO GIANT(1)> F&M overnight
05:31:23 <GO GIANT(1)> 18 18 15 3 is the new count
05:31:35 <GO GIANT(1)> SB and F&M tied again
05:48:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern's refilling already
05:48:45 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe already at overflow by now
06:08:59 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
06:14:09 <ynpvisitor34> `8min
06:14:36 <Jimbo Chromium> Thanks
06:18:24 <Jimbo Chromium> I guess 1b is all there is
06:18:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini, Riverside ie
06:19:59 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C | 8m52s
06:20:51 <ynpvisitor37> Good plumes this morning. They match the map :)
06:21:33 <Kevin L™> Another long BH interval I see.
06:32:07 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
06:34:36 <Kevin L™> Oblong?
06:34:58 <ynpvisitor999®> personally I'd say Vent and Turban
06:36:03 <Kevin L™> Could be. Pretty big plume for a bit there. Low temps and hight humidity make those though.
06:40:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto 0837 ns
06:41:30 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see a Giant cloud this morning.
06:41:54 <ynpvisitor112> a giant Giant cloud?
06:42:14 <ynpvisitor34> It would be really really big
06:43:41 <ynpvisitor34> Ginormous comes to mind
06:46:30 <Kevin L™> Anybody know what feature this is? https://www.flickr.com/photos/47148237@N06/43758807445/in/dateposted/
06:47:50 <ynpvisitor999®> do you know by any chance in what basin this picture was taken?
06:48:37 <GO GIANT (1)> FYI Joe's 0122 OF time should probaby be a wc time?
06:48:40 <Kevin L™> It looks like the Upper Basin. BW in the background.
06:49:42 <ynpvisitor999®> that's an early OF
06:50:07 <ynpvisitor34> it is now wc thanks Graham
06:50:36 <ynpvisitor37> 0849 wc +/-
06:50:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I have it as early 0849
06:51:09 <ynpvisitor37> Sounds good
06:52:07 <fishynp> Kevin L, I think that is the runoff of Doublet Pool?
06:52:42 <GO GIANT (1)> thats what i was thinking too
06:52:48 <ynpvisitor71> or down from Plume
06:52:55 <Kevin L™> It may be. His previous were of Doublet
06:53:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look on Maps. I really couldn't tell what it was, even though it may have been UGB
06:53:49 <ynpvisitor34> OF actually 084856
06:54:34 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough :)
06:54:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll delete mine, so yours will be the primary
06:55:12 <ynpvisitor34> just change yours
06:55:42 <ynpvisitor999®> could've been possible too
06:56:03 <lc> Graham, you don't have to worry about f&m
06:56:35 <GO GIANT (1)> for a few days .. its back in play now. could go short if it wants
06:57:34 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be Doublet Pool on that image, Kevin: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.4640902,-110.82965,3a,15.5y,342.23h,85.07t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s13rccjcSdW-e4_0MSEiQug!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
06:58:48 <ynpvisitor34> next daisy 0948 +/-5min
07:02:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate?
07:02:53 <Kevin L™> Looks like it could be
07:02:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I think I can see some water at the bottom of that column, not entirely sure though
07:03:41 <ynpvisitor999®> zoom in on it would be helpful
07:10:08 <lc> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RitClG2v0Po ge's 9/1/18 Giant.
07:16:37 <GO GIANT (1)> its a good video
07:16:54 <GO GIANT (1)> looks like you had a good trip lc?
07:18:57 <lc> Very good
07:19:18 <lc> SB and 2 Giants
07:19:41 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a success to me.
07:19:48 <GO GIANT (1)> wow thats quite a trip
07:19:54 <lc> best year I have ever had
07:20:17 <Kevin L™> Daisy
07:20:25 <lc> hope they can keep going for you Graham.
07:20:33 <Kevin L™> Nope
07:21:03 <GO GIANT (1)> thanks lc, i hope so too. looking forward to reading the Cistern refill reports
07:21:05 <ynpvisitor999®> what a lovely little sput, that Giant
07:21:36 <lc> you may not have a lot of gazers to help you
07:22:15 <lc> I think SteveO will be back late in your trip
07:22:17 <GO GIANT (1)> yeah a lot of people have left. not sure if HK and SUzanne leave thsi weekend?
07:23:04 <lc> I think they may leave after the next Giant.
07:23:32 <lc> Kitt may be back at some point.
07:23:48 <GO GIANT (1)> they are having a great year too ... then theres another SB opportunity .......
07:24:24 <lc> that may keep them around a few more days.
07:24:45 <Jimbo Chromium> I think I'll watch that Giant video on my big screen TV later
07:24:50 <GO GIANT (1)> lets see whan Giant goes .... would be nice for it to settle on short intervals
07:26:06 <lc> yes it would, and there is Morning. ???
07:26:44 <ynpvisitor101> Fantastic video LC
07:27:23 <lc> ge did a great job.
07:27:27 <GO GIANT (1)> Morningis being neglected ... but if i get a fay ff from Giant and SB I will check it out
07:28:12 <lc> Dave W. got a great shot of Morning.
07:29:40 <lc> bbl, time for breakfast.
07:33:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
07:33:57 <Kevin L™> Now watch BH go when they head up to Lion.
07:39:14 <Jimbo Chromium> What was the BH prediction?
07:39:47 <ynpvisitor34> 0200~
07:40:47 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
07:40:53 <GO GIANT (1)> I dont think I will be waiting for BH .. just leap into action if I get a text
07:41:39 <Time for BH> Kevin fixed his computer after the update.
07:41:43 <Jimbo Chromium> Ouch on that BH prediction
07:42:46 <GO GIANT (1)> Grand is having its longest run of 5 in 24h
07:42:59 <GO GIANT (1)> longest this year anyway
07:43:07 <ynpvisitor999®> yet still no 5 Grands on one day :(
07:43:19 <GO GIANT (1)> it could try in 2 or 3 days
07:43:25 <GO GIANT (1)> its waiting for me
07:43:49 <GO GIANT (1)> not that I am going to be there for them
07:45:08 <Kevin L™> Computer worked. I was just out to the races.
07:45:56 <Kevin L™> Going to get to ride in a truck on the parade laps with the drivers on tonight's and tomorrow's races.
07:46:06 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
07:46:18 <GO GIANT (1)> sweet .. have fun
07:46:45 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a short interval for SC. Only 1h13m
07:47:20 <Time for BH> You don't get to go pick up parts after wrecks?
07:47:20 <GO GIANT (1)> bet thats going to draw a crowd of gazers :)
07:47:58 <Time for BH> SC is due for a major!
07:48:37 <lc> I did hear SC called one time on the radio.
07:48:56 <lc> got a few boos
07:49:56 <lc> btw, Pat S. got a bison, totaled her truck.
07:50:00 <ynpvisitor999®> would've been a different story if it did 20+ feet I guess
07:50:09 <ynpvisitor26> Is Indy going?
07:50:25 <Time for BH> What about the Bison/
07:50:29 <Time for BH> ?
07:50:31 <ynpvisitor999®> doesn't look like it, 26
07:50:41 <ynpvisitor999®> zoom on BH wouldn't be that bad though
07:50:57 <lc> she hit a bison just south of Midway.
07:51:06 <ynpvisitor26> Thnx. By Castle so couldn’t tell. Grotto is off.
07:51:33 <Time for BH> I thought there was enough moon to be able to see them.
07:52:06 <Time for BH> One more good reason to put reflectors on Bison Butts.
07:52:07 <ynpvisitor26> Ok
07:52:12 <lc> it was about 0530, not much moon.
07:52:12 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
07:52:58 <Time for BH> That is why people hate me when I drive in the park at night. I drive slow.
07:53:26 <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
07:54:01 <ynpvisitor999®> not really between that, or just after or before that half an hour
07:54:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:56:33 <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.
07:57:04 <GO GIANT (1)> OF +/- 45m nearly always works :)
07:57:37 <GO GIANT (1)> lc - saw Pats pictue on Facebook, nasty but Walt did a good job protecting her
07:58:14 <Kevin L™> How did the bison come out?
07:58:22 <lc> I saw pictures, she was pretty lucky.
07:58:38 <lc> it did limp away.
07:58:43 <GO GIANT (1)> rangers checked and said the bison was ok
07:59:21 <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.
07:59:21 <GO GIANT (1)> at lest not a safety risk ..... may end up as bear or wolf chow tho if it has an injury
07:59:56 <Jimbo Chromium> Before I drove it, I got gas in Salida, and asked the attendant if Highway 50 was dangerous (it was nighttime).
08:00:18 <Jimbo Chromium> She said "Not too bad, but the deer will jump right out in front of you with no warning."
08:00:21 <Jimbo Chromium> I drove slow.
08:00:26 <Time for BH> Black hole is a good way to describe them.
08:01:11 <lc> we went to Norris that morning, did drive slow.
08:01:19 <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
08:03:17 <lc> Kevin, I did not see Aurum up close.
08:03:41 <GO GIANT (1)> so worst trip ever lc?
08:04:22 <lc> did have a walk-up Artemisia.
08:04:59 <Kevin L™> That is surprising. It did have a few short intervals.
08:05:44 <Kevin L™> Nice on Artemesia
08:07:55 <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.
08:08:07 <lc> before the flood.
08:11:38 <lc> gtg, bbl.
08:35:15 <Time for BH> Well, enjoy BH, got to go.
08:37:19 <ynpvisitor999®> bye
08:42:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
08:42:48 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:42:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:42:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:42:50 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:42:51 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:44:11 <Eric> Nice
08:44:19 <Eric> thx for the txt
08:44:29 <ynpvisitor1111> Time for BH had bad timing!!
08:45:09 <ynpvisitor1111> BH looks lonely today
08:45:13 <ynpvisitor34> yw, Eric
08:52:22 <ynpvisitor34> Lion
08:52:54 <ynpvisitor999®> not too happy with the 1h19m interval, though. Could mean end of series
08:53:33 <Eric> Could mean middle of series :-P
08:54:27 <ynpvisitor999®> please contain yourself, Bee. Need to get this Lion's time. Priorities, y'know?
08:54:43 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
08:54:46 <Eric> BH
08:54:52 <ynpvisitor999®> what did I tell you again...?
08:55:26 <Eric> Bee doesn't listen very well.
08:55:51 <Eric> Nice tall eruption though.
08:56:10 <ynpvisitor999®> nope... especially in autumn and winter it behaves badly
08:56:38 <ynpvisitor999®> this one looks very fine
09:24:13 <GO GIANT (1)> that was a nice lunch. did i miss anything?
09:24:35 <Kevin L™> Nothing special.
09:25:00 <GO GIANT (1)> i see that
09:25:03 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe a few LC's, but that's more-or-less it, bascially
09:25:20 <ynpvisitor999®> also some other sput. Not that important, though
09:31:09 <GO GIANT (1)> strong GHP
09:31:19 <GO GIANT (1)> but not strong enough
09:37:02 <Betty> hi all
09:37:13 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:37:21 <Kevin L™> Hi
09:37:24 <Betty> evening DG
09:37:25 <GO GIANT (1)> hi Betty. are you packed?
09:37:37 <Betty> hi Kevin and Graham
09:37:47 <Betty> hi Bill
09:38:07 <Kevin L™> Did you get that new freezer?
09:38:16 <Betty> I put things together, final packig is tomorrow
09:38:22 <Betty> no
09:38:49 <Betty> I made a cake and some Marmelade
09:38:54 <GO GIANT (1)> hi Bill. Thanks for keeping the geysers erupting
09:38:57 <Bill> Hello!
09:39:01 <Bill> I do what i can.
09:39:05 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Bill
09:39:15 <Betty> :-)
09:39:42 <GO GIANT (1)> how was the ice cream betty?
09:39:56 <Betty> yummy
09:40:16 <Kevin L™> German ice cream is wonderful.
09:41:41 <Betty> if you believe it or not, I kept some thing in the freezer, and things are still frozen
09:43:18 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder how Cistern is looking
09:43:22 <Betty> so I was able to cook things
09:46:45 <Kevin L™> How big is the freezer?
09:53:48 <Betty> only 3 drawer
09:54:47 <Betty> mostly fruits like cherries and plums
09:55:12 <Kevin L™> Not that big then. Mine is 6 feet high and 3 feet wide
09:55:49 <Betty> no. It´s combined with the fridge
09:56:58 <Kevin L™> That makes it worse
09:57:05 <Betty> I´m really glad it did not happen while I was in US
09:58:11 <Betty> I have another fridge for beverages which I use at parties only. So it is not too bad
09:58:42 <Kevin L™> So your fridge is dead too?
09:58:53 <Eric> If we don't have another GHP before 1800, look for a giant tonight :-D
09:59:01 <Betty> it was not much left in the fridge anyway, for I was emptying it for the holiday
10:03:34 <Betty> I cannot put it to the plug. the ELCB worked
10:09:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Sawmill was within an inch of overflow @ 0837
10:12:56 <GO GIANT (1)> I prefer 1800 tomorrow Eric
10:14:29 <GO GIANT (1)> of course if it goes tonight its one less thing to preoccupy me
10:14:59 <GO GIANT (1)> Cistern not yet at OF
10:15:03 <ynpvisitor7> Slower Cistern refill this time
10:15:47 <ynpvisitor7> Giant will be Graham’s go to spot unless it goes before his arrival
10:17:14 <Kevin L™> And you thought bears were bad: https://www.ksl.com/article/46390737/feds-close-off-wilderness-after-cougar-kills-oregon-hiker
10:18:33 <ynpvisitor999®> it's the second day of Cistern refilling, so not too bad. Would've liked if it were full already, though
10:18:39 <GO GIANT (1)> not necessarily slower .... about 2 days after the prior eruption it was down 6 feet. looks faster to me
10:19:22 <Eric> Yep, we have a lot of cougars around here. Interesting that one would attack a hiker at this time of year.
10:19:30 <GO GIANT (1)> CB's report was only 2d5h post eruptive
10:20:15 <Kevin L™> You would think they would keep a better watch on those Washington State students Eric.
10:20:31 <Eric> Haha :-P
10:27:08 <Betty> Daisy
10:27:52 <Betty> hey Eric, did not see you sneak in :-)
10:30:59 <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.
10:32:00 <GO GIANT (1)> ftn d=33m ..... nice duration
10:46:41 <Eric> Pets are good food :-)
10:49:51 <Kevin L™> I know coyotes like the cats that people let run around here.
10:57:45 <ynpvisitor17> Is that a Ranger talk? Big crowd for OF being so far away
10:58:05 <ynpvisitor17> yep, found the ranger
11:01:22 <Betty> Grotto?
11:08:40 <ynpvisitor17> odd that there is no in basin Grotto time
11:09:08 <Betty> yep
11:09:49 <GO GIANT (1)> there was the earlier one. maybe after the strong hot period people left .. although Brian was at Grand
11:10:20 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe he's watching the Sawmill complex today?
11:11:37 <ynpvisitor999®> still too early for Grand, maybe Rift delays it by a bit this time
11:12:21 <ynpvisitor34> Rift, Steve Favor 1257
11:28:52 <GO GIANT (1)> of
11:31:10 <Betty> short
11:32:50 <Betty> LC ie
11:34:13 <Jimbo Chromium> LC looks quite energetic today
11:34:46 <Betty> maybe we get a major :-D
11:52:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
11:53:14 <ynpvisitor999®> tall
11:53:20 <Betty> yeah
11:53:40 <Betty> powerful start
11:54:19 <ynpvisitor999®> SC might be soon
11:55:08 <Betty> seems it is ie
11:55:18 <ynpvisitor999®> 1354
11:55:37 <GO GIANT (1)> keeps the short grand intervals going
11:55:48 <Betty> only steam
11:55:55 <ynpvisitor999®> some water
11:56:15 <Betty> yep
11:56:20 <ynpvisitor999®> now's the fun part
12:02:13 <ynpvisitor34> 2nd
12:02:28 <ynpvisitor999®> 10m - looks like a 2nd start
12:04:07 <Kevin L™> Nice to get a 2nd with that duration
12:05:33 <ynpvisitor999®> G2Q | 10m15s
12:30:53 <Betty> LC
12:36:02 <Betty> OF
12:41:22 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a long long - ~5m01s before I couldn't see water/spray anymore
12:51:41 <Betty> Daisy
13:00:24 <Betty> LC ie
13:29:02 <ynpvisitor999®> 1514 footbath with SW blipping
13:29:09 <Betty> GHP 1514
13:29:39 <Betty> LC ie
13:33:16 <Betty> just a note on GHP
13:34:15 <Betty> time for sleep. night all
13:36:09 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:36:17 <ynpvisitor90> CIAO evribody :i:
13:55:14 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
13:55:25 <GO GIANT (1)> i wonder how long Giant will wait for its next hot period .. not unusual to have a gap before it erupts
13:55:44 <GO GIANT (1)> hum, i have room in my case ... what did I forget?
14:00:14 <ynpvisitor112> flashlight
14:00:23 <ynpvisitor112> car cover
14:00:29 <ynpvisitor112> elk repellent
14:00:34 <GO GIANT (1)> nope, i have 3 flashlights. no car cover
14:00:48 <GO GIANT (1)> haha i saw the elk video. stupid people not moving away
14:01:57 <GO GIANT (1)> "when wildlife approaches you, its YOUR responsibility to move away from it"
14:10:53 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1609
14:11:25 <GO GIANT (1)> i didnt see any report from Dave on the thermal activity at Lake?
14:17:35 <lc> gtg, Graham have a great trip.
14:17:53 <lc> may the geysers be kind to you.
14:18:00 <ynpvisitor999®> bye lc
14:18:18 <lc> bye
14:25:08 <GO GIANT (1)> thanks lc
14:53:57 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching SC, Aurum and the treeline.
14:55:01 <GO GIANT (1)> buye DG
14:55:16 <GO GIANT (1)> look forward t oall the UGB overnight times
14:55:27 <GO GIANT (1)> and seismo reports
15:09:17 <GO GIANT (1)> medium hot period
15:09:31 <GO GIANT (1)> thet will keep peeps out there late waiting for the next one
15:10:06 <GO GIANT (1)> maybe ... or the clouds will push people away
15:12:22 <GO GIANT (1)> Giant is still 14h before its shortest interval of the year
15:13:17 <GO GIANT (1)> it could go tonight, but all the intervals have been longer so far
