04:53:50 <Dave from B™> Good morning Rice
04:54:05 <Rice> Morning Dave
04:54:49 <Rice> We are predited our first snow in Upsate NY tomorrow night.
04:59:10 <Dave from B™> Enjoy! Our 2-3" has melted and now we have 60's for the next 7 days:)
05:08:17 <ynpvisitor92> 15 deg and lots of snow on the ground in the park. Not the best for hiking.
05:08:52 <Dave from B™> 92, where did you try to go?
05:09:56 <ynpvisitor92> Just arrived last night. Will see what I can do today Kent
05:11:19 <Dave from B™> might have to go to the far north Kent
05:11:43 <Dave from B™> Hellroaring, Blacktail
05:13:06 <ynpvisitor42> My plan was Hayden. I have things I want to get done. Not being a tourist this trip
05:13:32 <Dave from B™> Aren't warmer temps arriving today?
05:14:19 <ynpvisitor42> No computer. Face rec won't work and I don't remember my password
05:15:28 <ynpvisitor42> Yes, but cold and short days don't allow much time for the snow to melt
05:16:07 <ynpvisitor80> What do you do that’s not being a tourist?
05:16:34 <ynpvisitor42> My phone never works in the UGB so this is amazing
05:16:44 <ynpvisitor42> History
05:16:53 <ynpvisitor80> No people about
05:17:12 <ynpvisitor80> That’s a big subject Kent
05:17:31 <ynpvisitor42> Don't know. Arrived after dark
05:17:36 <ynpvisitor80> Meetings at OF about history?
05:17:59 <ynpvisitor42> No things I want to see
05:18:28 <ynpvisitor80> Places in YNP?
05:19:18 <ynpvisitor42> Going to call Microsoft and see if they can help get me on my tablet.
05:19:42 <ynpvisitor42> Yes, specific places
05:19:54 <ynpvisitor80> I hope you can see them. Not a good time of year for specific places
05:20:12 <ynpvisitor80> Good luck, with your computer and the places
05:20:29 <ynpvisitor42> Especially on the shady side of hills
05:21:27 <ynpvisitor80> Maybe go for a month earlier next year
05:24:03 <ynpvisitor42> I come all the time. This was just the last trip of the season.
05:46:04 <Dave from B™> Good luck Kent
05:46:24 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:56:48 <Dave from B™> Hi DG
06:07:55 <Dave from B™> Mourning Kevin, Jimbo
06:08:04 <Jimbo Osmium> Hello
06:10:47 <Jimbo Osmium> Actually, I think Kevin is still quite healthy, Dave :p
06:11:30 <Dave from B™> He's good but not our baseball team
06:11:53 <Dave from B™> Sad to also hear of Paul Allen's passing yesterday as well
06:12:00 <Jimbo Osmium> Yes indeed
06:15:37 <ynpvisitor42> My kingdom for one more moment of time. 65 too young.
06:16:04 <Dave from B™> Yep...65 is way too young
06:16:37 <Dave from B™> Kent, did you get into your computer?
06:16:47 <Jimbo Osmium> He had so much going on, too. A grad school classmate of mine has become a relatively famous deep see shipwreck hunter, and has found some important wrecks working with Allen.
06:17:04 <ynpvisitor42> No Microsoft until 10
06:17:18 <Jimbo Osmium> His name is David Mearns
06:27:22 <Kevin L™😎> Was Paul Allen one of the guys on the famous Tandy CoCo gang of three picture?
06:30:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle 2242 wc min d=~7m - fairly certain major already happened earlier today
06:34:09 <Kevin L™😎> Looks like we may have a naked eye visible comet around Christmas.
06:34:19 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting
06:35:23 <Kevin L™😎> Information on it at
06:35:48 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll take a look after I've finished reviewing the overnights
06:36:40 <Dave from B™> My fresh manager was told about a good weather site yesterday. Check out
06:36:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ie
06:37:48 <Dave from B™> hk and Suzanne leave today
06:38:00 <Kevin L™😎> :(
06:38:07 <Dave from B™> So glad Jenna's parents caught Steamboat
06:38:26 <Dave from B™> Am I going to be by myself next week in prison?
06:38:37 <Kevin L™😎> Been nice having the info. HK told me he was going to go after Steamboat though. Got tired of the cold nasty weather.
06:39:01 <Dave from B™> But the weather is improving this week
06:48:13 <Kevin L™😎> I see it has gone from 6° to 15°. ⛄
06:49:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Beehive 0443
06:49:43 <Dave from B™> Highs 47 to 53 for next 7 days at OF. Much better than last week
06:53:11 <Kevin L™😎> Flagstaff had some snow last night. Amtrak was dusted when it came in.
06:55:43 <ynpvisitor999®> enjoy the predictions which should be rolling in soon :)
06:56:49 <Dave from B™> DG, could you add your Grand sighting as well?
06:57:00 <Dave from B™> beat me to it
06:59:14 <ynpvisitor20> can't complain about those temps - that's nice fall weather
07:00:08 <Dave from B™> Yep...60s all week in Blgs....nice to get some warmer weather before winter gets here
07:01:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I do have to note I couldn't see Riverside in the steamy mess/darkness this morning. Personally I'd say 1215±30m, using a double interval of 12h rounded to the nearest quarter
07:02:44 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
07:08:27 <ynpvisitor999®> would be nice if the cam were to be cleaned - preferably first with a hot cloth and then cleaning solution
07:13:25 <ynpvisitor42> Griz between ranger station and employee housing
07:13:50 <ynpvisitor999®> must make for an interesting morning over there
07:14:42 <Kevin L™😎> Looking for some Gazer Grizzly Chow®
07:17:20 <Dave from B™> Kent, do you know which way the griz is headed
07:19:09 <ynpvisitor42> South? Towards employee housing. With cub(s)
07:19:44 <Jenna> I'm still here chat room lol
07:20:22 <Kevin L™😎> Hey Jenna, nice to see your Mom and Dad got SB
07:20:41 <Jenna> yeah I was thrilled for them!
07:21:19 <Jenna> they're at OF now. didn't see the griz but was warned about it.
07:21:20 <Kevin L™😎> Now if Giant will cooperate...
07:21:32 <Jenna> yup! that would help with the guilt of leaving the farm lol
07:21:55 <ynpvisitor81> Better chance for F&M
07:22:32 <ynpvisitor81> And I’d guess just the SB experience has erased any guilt
07:23:10 <Dave from B™> Watching new videos of SB never gets old!
07:23:58 <ynpvisitor81> Maybe you’re next Dave...
07:24:25 <Dave from B™> I hope so
07:27:07 <Jenna> I would hope it did. They didn't say if they were headed to Giant or F&M.
07:27:08 <Dave from B™> I'm still so excited that a LOT of people have been able to see SB
07:28:59 <ynpvisitor999®> me too. I bet for most a once of a lifetime, especially tourists
07:30:09 <Dave from B™> This year will create dozens of new gazers...which we always need
07:30:19 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
07:55:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy ie
08:29:47 <Betty> morning all, evening DG

08:33:31 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric, Hi Betty

08:33:58 <Kevin L™😎> I was was trying to save you Betty
08:34:10 <Betty> I know
08:34:13 <Eric> Dave from B is Dave from G in Germany.
08:34:27 <Dave from B™> :D
08:34:36 <Dave from B™> No, just from Berlin not Billings
08:34:51 <Kevin L™😎> Would that be Dave Schimdt?
08:34:55 <Eric> Hmmm, that could be confusing
08:35:00 <Betty> Billings is only 20 miles from my home
08:35:13 <Dave from B™> actually last name a long time ago was Schmid
08:35:22 <Betty> Schmidt or Meier
08:35:27 <Dave from B™> Lots of German on my dads side
08:35:46 <Eric> My dad is full german
08:35:56 <Betty> me too :-D
08:36:03 <Eric> :-D
08:36:19 <Eric> apprentely our dads think alike too :-D
08:36:25 <Kevin L™😎> 🥨🍺
08:36:52 <Dave from B™> Betty, your Billings is a sister city to my Billings
08:37:01 <Betty> unfortunately my dad is dead since 1993
08:37:05 <Dave from B™>,_Hesse
08:37:30 <Eric> Dave, you should do a business good will trip to Billings, Germany
08:37:50 <Betty>
08:37:53 <Dave from B™> Someday, I will knock on Betty's door:)
08:38:02 <Betty> yeah!
08:38:26 <Betty> see, it is Fischbachtal!
08:39:35 <Dave from B™> Not sure who your Billings is named after but Montana Billings is named after Frederick Billings
08:40:30 <Dave from B™> He was President of the Northern Pacific
08:41:29 <Betty> our Billings was first named in 8th Century as marca Billingurae
08:43:09 <Betty> OF
08:43:28 <Betty> fluffy Fluffy
08:49:24 <Dave from B™> No field reporters today?
08:58:31 <ynpvisitor73> They are all defrosting from SB.
08:59:03 <Dave from B™> Good morning Micah
08:59:17 <Betty> hi Micah
08:59:28 <Micah-computer> Mornin'
09:00:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Micah
09:00:39 <Jenna> mom and dad only have trac phones lol. so unless they update me, they're no help.
09:01:03 <Dave from B™> Micah, what are you up to these days?
09:01:18 <Micah-computer> Looking for a temp job around here before heading back to Yellowstone for the summer.
09:01:25 <Micah-computer> Currently getting ready to apply for REI
09:01:56 <ynpvisitor9> What will you do in Yellowstone?
09:02:22 <ynpvisitor9> good time of year to be applying, with low unemployment and the holidays approaching
09:02:28 <Micah-computer> I'm gunning or Xanterra Transportation or NPS Interp. If not it will be back to the front desk.
09:02:46 <ynpvisitor73> I figured you would work the snow lodge.
09:03:01 <ynpvisitor9> let's hope for NPS!!
09:03:56 <ynpvisitor9> still volunteers about I see
09:03:57 <Micah-computer> If I don't nab NPS out the gate. Xanterra TRansportation is a good stepping stone, as I can get my interp certification with them.
09:04:03 <ynpvisitor73> Dave needs a private investigator to catch a thief.
09:04:38 <ynpvisitor9> let's hope Dave does not really have someone stealing from him
09:05:39 <ynpvisitor73> If they are not stealing, he has terrible inventory control, and giving product away for free.
09:06:09 <Dave from B™> Micah, good luck in your future YNP endeavors. I know you would be a great interp
09:06:18 <Micah-computer> Thanks Dave.
09:06:31 <Betty> yes, you really would
09:06:58 <Dave from B™> I'm really enjoying starting to read YNP history again
09:12:10 <ynpvisitor20> whatcha reading
09:13:02 <Dave from B™> Lee W's book on Cinnabar
09:22:28 <Dave from B™> I'm also in the process of cataloging my YNP collection so I can start shopping on ebay again
09:22:30 <Eric> looks like grotto ie
09:23:08 <Dave from B™> I was cleaning thru a book in my garage last weekend and found park newspapers are other things from the 70's and 80's
09:23:14 <Dave from B™> box*
09:23:21 <Dave from B™> and*
09:23:54 <ynpvisitor999®> must've been one large hollowed out book serving as box then :)
09:24:08 <Dave from B™> haha
09:24:21 <Micah-computer> Kinda sounds like me cataloguing my rock samples this spring
09:25:49 <Dave from B™> not a lot of fun but needs to be done
09:26:24 <Kevin L™😎> I have a bunch that my Father-in-Law collected. There is a piece of obsidian about a foot around.
09:27:12 <Micah-computer> I have about a dozen more I collected from the TOWN of Norris in the bed of my truck right now.
09:28:21 <Dave from B™> It has been nice working 45 hours a week instead of 65....finding time to do other things
09:29:06 <Betty> I bet
09:56:01 <Kevin L™😎>
09:56:11 <Kevin L™😎> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
09:58:35 <ynpvisitor48> even the tomer put me to sleep
09:59:01 <ynpvisitor48> timer- have Dave's typing skills
10:01:44 <Micah-computer> lol
10:03:25 <Dave from B™> At least I'm famous for something!:)
10:08:19 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
10:08:51 <ynpvisitor999®> with rainbow :)
10:08:51 <Micah-computer> That's a big crowd for Mid-Oct
10:08:55 <Micah-computer> Poor Snow Lodge
10:09:04 <Kevin L™😎> A bit of a 🌈
10:12:09 <Dave from B™> Hi, ge
10:12:29 <Micah-computer> Hello ge
10:12:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
10:12:51 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems
10:12:55 <Betty> hi ge
10:13:07 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon ge
10:13:21 <Eric> riverside?
10:13:39 <Eric> ok..yep it is
10:13:54 <Jenna> dad said riverside 1212
10:15:04 <Dave from B™> Does anyone know where the phone at Norris is that Heinrich has mentioned in his blog?
10:15:37 <Eric> There is no phone at norris
10:16:10 <Eric> or maybe the bookstore has one that is used for CC processing?
10:16:28 <Micah-computer> There is a phone but I don't think it's operational.
10:16:35 <Micah-computer> Which date did he mention it Dave?
10:18:15 <Micah-computer> Or at least there's a phone booth. might not have a phone actually in it.
10:19:20 <Micah-computer> Most of the pay phones in the park have been taken out.
10:20:06 <Eric> They could use that copper line to have a nice DSL connection for streaming webcam :-D
10:21:16 <ynpvisitor999®> personally I see more in coax or fiber, but I guess that's a bit on the expensive side
10:22:14 <Dave from B™> He mentioned it in his blog early this season
10:22:32 <Dave from B™> I beleive he said you needed a calling card for it
10:22:50 <Micah-computer> Ok.
10:23:00 <Eric> Our old phone booths didn't have fiber or coax to them :-P But that copper is still probably connected back all the way to mammoth
10:23:17 <Dave from B™> I was just hoping to help some people out with info on mon and Tues of next week
10:24:46 <Micah-computer> Ok, yeah. That phone is in the lot closer to the basin.
10:24:58 <Micah-computer> Sorta towards the bathrooms.
10:25:07 <Micah-computer> It's just like one of the booths you see on the side of Lower hams.
10:25:12 <Micah-computer> I didn't realize it worked
10:25:34 <Dave from B™> I haven't bought a calling card in decades
10:27:00 <Dave from B™> where would you buy one?
10:27:14 <Jenna> the general stores had them last I knew
10:27:22 <Jenna> used a lot of them at Rosie lol
10:27:34 <Dave from B™> Jenna, that was a few years ago:)
10:27:39 <Micah-computer> Lower Gen doesn't have them anymore.
10:27:46 <Jenna> just a few, that's why I put last I knew!
10:28:16 <Dave from B™> haha....I'd want to be it in Billings...Walgreens? Best Buy? any ideas?
10:28:27 <Dave from B™> be = buy
10:28:32 <Jenna> not sure I've seen that many people sitting on the boardwalk before
10:29:19 <Micah-computer> From the looks of it, it's a field trip class having a lunch break.
10:29:50 <Jenna> looks like Best Buy has thekm
10:30:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:30:40 <Dave from B™> Thanks Jenna
10:30:47 <Jenna> walgreens is a no go
10:31:20 <Dave from B™> Kevin, if you get a call from a Norris number on mon or Tuesday...answer it:)
10:31:37 <Kevin L™😎> Will do
10:33:38 <BSK> I'll spend some time Sunday, just in case. ;)
10:33:47 <Eric> Here is the phone number for that payphone :-) 307-344-9993
10:35:22 <Eric> Here is a picture of the payphone:
10:36:31 <ynpvisitor85> We probably could communicate via ham frequencies between basins and beyond
10:37:12 <Eric> Yes, via repeaters you can get out of norris on a ham radio I believe
10:38:12 <ynpvisitor85> We'd just need proper licenses to use the radios many already have
10:39:43 <Kevin L™😎> I wonder if you coul do a ham radio to telephone hookup.
10:45:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric
10:45:30 <Dave from B™> There's a webpage for everything
10:47:01 <Eric> hmm, apparently that number isn't reachable, but it is what is listed for that phonebooth
10:47:36 <Dave from B™> I wonder if it is broken
10:47:38 <BSK> Sure the phone booth is still active? I would expect it to be, but...
10:47:54 <Eric> Dave is going to find out :-D
10:48:00 <Dave from B™> haha
10:48:03 <Eric> The beverly's might know
10:48:27 <Kevin L™😎> Call the number
10:48:33 <BSK> I don't think the one at Roosevelt Junction is anymore. I'll have to check just out of curiosity.
10:48:40 <Dave from B™> It would be nice to be able to get info out of norris on a consistent basis
10:49:32 <Eric> Yep, you just need a modem coupler and you could probably get 55k baud rate data to AOL or something :-P
10:49:55 <Eric> Maybe enough to download the simple chat interface in about 20 minutes.
10:50:22 <BSK> We actually still have a few customers on dialup, believe it or not!
10:50:30 <Dave from B™> Nothing like coming back to the technology of the 80's
10:50:34 <ynpvisitor999®> sounds like a great speed to me - much better than I have :P
10:50:37 <Dave from B™> going*
10:51:22 <BSK> A text-only email would work on even a 20k dialup.
10:52:20 <BSK> but... if making a long-distance call (to a dialup network), might just as well call a person and have them shout it out on the interwebs
10:53:04 <Eric> Not sure where this number rings to, but: Norris Geyser Basin Museum and Information Station Exhibits about the range of hydrothermal features in Yellowstone. Open May 19 to October 8, 2018. ä 307-344-2812
10:53:21 <Eric> This is a number listed for Norris Museum
10:54:46 <Dave from B™> I'm sure that phone is locked inside a building since they are closed
10:59:06 <Dave from B™> Off for a workout
11:03:50 <Micah-computer> alright, gotta do some other things. I'll be around.
11:10:14 <Eric> Micah, run up to Norris and call Dave collect on that payphone.
11:12:26 <Micah-busy> Uh sure, I'll try to see if I can get there in...uh.....14 hours or so.
11:12:31 <Micah-busy> Gotta fill up the tank first.
11:12:50 <Betty> take some cookies with you
11:13:15 <Kevin L™😎> Do they allow cookies at Norris?
11:13:26 <Eric> Not on the BW
11:14:00 <Eric> Maybe bribe a ranger with cookies and you can get away with it.
11:17:09 <Betty> some rangers distribute cookies by themselves ;-)
11:45:25 <ynpvisitor20> you can call MT or WY #'s on that phone without a calling card
11:46:18 <BSK> I've got MT number...
12:31:15 <Betty> Grand
12:31:26 <ynpvisitor89> yay Grand
12:31:37 <Kevin L™😎> I think I am lagged
12:31:48 <Betty> zzz?
12:32:21 <Kevin L™😎> It wasn't even on chat when I zoomed to it.
12:33:39 <Jimbo Osmium> I bet this will be a 1b because I'm watching.
12:35:05 <Jenna> no turban
12:37:01 <Jimbo Osmium> Good view of this one
12:37:20 <Kevin L™😎> Amazing to see water
12:37:44 <Eric> 2b|^2b
12:38:02 <Jimbo Osmium> Good question
12:38:21 <Eric> boom
12:38:37 <Eric> that looked secondish...without a real pause
12:38:43 <Eric> and early
12:39:53 <Eric> 8m....look for the booooom
12:40:03 <Eric> ohh, or 9m

12:40:34 <Eric> hold for it
12:40:44 <Betty> wow

12:41:05 <Jimbo Osmium> !!!
12:41:08 <Eric> another pause
12:41:22 <Eric> comme on 3b
12:41:55 <Jimbo Osmium> I'm happy with that 2nd
12:42:03 <ynpvisitor999®> so if I interpret the 1430 Grand correctly, Turban didn't preceed Grand?
12:42:15 <Betty> just for you
12:42:19 <Eric> Looks like a 2b
12:42:31 <Jimbo Osmium> Glad I lost my bet
12:43:33 <Betty> looks like G2Q
12:43:42 <Eric> agree
12:43:44 <ynpvisitor999®> was thinking the same thing
12:44:14 <Kevin L™😎> That was a pretty 2nd
12:44:22 <Betty> yup
12:46:18 <Betty> watch for Daisy and F&M, I need some sleep. Night all
12:46:27 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
12:46:39 <Kevin L™😎> Good Knight Beetty
12:46:57 <Jenna> confirm no turban before grand and it was a 2nd
12:47:25 <ynpvisitor999®> did Vent and Turban quit after Grand?
12:53:51 <GO GIANT> did i miss anything?
12:54:08 <GO GIANT> ooh a coupld of in-park times
12:54:11 <BSK> Just Grand
12:54:13 <Kevin L™😎> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:54:19 <Jimbo Osmium> Some water shooting out of a steaming pool
12:54:40 <Jenna> I can ask 999
12:54:49 <GO GIANT> looks like a nice day
12:55:41 <Kevin L™😎> I will have to leave at 1600 so I won't be able to run the cam toKinght. If any other cam op wants it I will be releasing controls at 1600.
12:57:02 <GO GIANT> less than 3 weeks of peeps around, sigh
12:57:32 <Micah-away> Be back later everyone. I haven't seen a beach in months so I'm going on a hike with my pops.
12:57:48 <GO GIANT> have fun
12:58:04 <GO GIANT> i havent seen a beach in longer tho
12:58:29 <GO GIANT> over a year .... need to fix that
12:58:40 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun Micah
13:00:42 <GO GIANT> almost 3 days without a NG ... its declining
13:01:38 <ynpvisitor999®> sad
13:01:54 <GO GIANT> oh well, it had a good run
13:01:55 <Kevin L™😎> It is sad the Dave is back?
13:02:23 <ynpvisitor999®> no, NG not being as active as after GH disturbance
13:02:33 <Dave from B™> haha
13:03:04 <GO GIANT> 341 eruptions reported this year
13:03:21 <Dave from B™> 64F in Blgs...woohoo
13:03:39 <GO GIANT> will Dave be away Monday?
13:03:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
13:03:59 <Kevin L™😎> Only 69° here
13:04:52 <Dave from B™> Graham, I will be at SB around 0830 Monday morning
13:05:08 <GO GIANT> we are all rooting for you
13:05:22 <Dave from B™> Committed to mon & Tues...hope it doesn't go before I get there
13:05:39 <Dave from B™> My luck it will go in the middle of the night
13:05:56 <ynpvisitor999®> we'd really need reports on Cistern to roughly know when it'll go
13:05:58 <GO GIANT> take a flashlight
13:06:30 <GO GIANT> not sure 999, it goes at an interval mostly
13:06:31 <Dave from B™> I'm going to try to communicate with the "bat" phone at Norris or did I mean "bad" phone?
13:07:09 <GO GIANT> it has to put out enough water to clear the trough
13:07:27 <Kevin L™😎> My wife was telling me that a coworker was talking about "all those people who were too cheap to pay for camping so they were squatting around the geysers all night".
13:07:48 <Micah-away> LOL
13:07:51 <Dave from B™> So, before that the trough is full of smaller pebbles from the last eruption or from the last "babbling brook"?
13:08:06 <Micah-away> Ok, for real. Now I'm outta here.
13:08:12 <GO GIANT> haha there are some like that .... always surprises them when you walk up on them in the basin
13:08:16 <Jenna> 999 yes they quit after the 2nd
13:08:32 <Kevin L™😎> Go take a hike Micah
13:08:51 <Dave from B™> Go find a tidepool, Micah
13:08:52 <Kevin L™😎> Don't forget your hazelnut trail mix.
13:08:57 <GO GIANT> the trough fills up when the monors start back up
13:09:18 <GO GIANT> it clears all the gravel thats been thrown out in the steam phase and didnt have anough water to wash down
13:09:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Thanks! This means G2Q as Grand code: no Turban before Grand: G; two bursts: 2; V&T quit: Q -> combining gives G2Q
13:09:36 <GO GIANT> the gavel fills the trough, you can see it bouncing down the runoff hill
13:09:40 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Graham
13:10:41 <GO GIANT> then as the minors get stronger, it puts down more water than gravel and starts to push it out of the trough. the big minors will clear it out and by then theres no or little new gravel coming down
13:10:45 <Kevin L™😎> It must be almost Halloween. Christmas ad on TV
13:11:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I've seen a few already. Probably late September the first one already
13:11:26 <GO GIANT> it has consistently cleared the gravel before it gets to erupt
13:11:42 <GO GIANT> and sometimes its just a day later
13:12:08 <GO GIANT> or usually i guess, at least 15h was what i remember hearing
13:12:48 <GO GIANT> of course then you are also seeing strong minors, so you know its getting there
13:13:24 <GO GIANT> hope it cooperates for you
13:13:32 <GO GIANT> you deserve it
13:13:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm looking forward to a Transactions article about SB's preludes (and Geyser Hill, of course)
13:14:43 <ynpvisitor999®> not to forget the Sawmill Complex either
13:15:24 <ynpvisitor999®> anyway, I'm off for today. Enjoy watching SC, Lion and the treeline.
13:15:25 <Dave from B™> Even though I call it prison, it is still fun watching the minors
13:15:32 <Dave from B™> Bye, DG
13:15:44 <Kevin L™😎> Good Knight DG
13:18:30 <Dave from B™> Minors at Steamboat are still the largest eruptions at Norris
13:20:47 <GO GIANT> the Sawmill transactions article will be very short
13:21:15 <GO GIANT> true Dave.
13:21:26 <Dave from B™> Graham, I think Sawmill will erupting before your next visit
13:22:50 <GO GIANT> its showing no signs of excitement
13:22:56 <Dave from B™> forgot the "be" in that sentence
13:23:20 <Dave from B™> You have to have something new to report on this winter!
13:23:21 <GO GIANT> 96 days .. it better heat up
13:24:46 <GO GIANT> Giantess and Lioness Big Cub are more likely given the GH fun
13:27:37 <GO GIANT> I will put up with a Mastiff eruption
13:27:54 <GO GIANT> and SB steam phase if they will let us go in
13:29:10 <Dave from B™> Too bad gazers couldn't have our own permanent snowcoach
13:29:59 <Kevin L™😎> I wonder if you could buy into one like a timeshare item.
13:31:00 <Dave from B™> They should have rental ones lying around:D
13:31:29 <Kevin L™😎> Maybe do a GOSA charter?
13:31:57 <GO GIANT> they did one or two from West
13:32:43 <Dave from B™> I did hear a rumor that there may be a gazer snowcoach day this winter
13:33:43 <GO GIANT> you can do a private tour ... just have to pay for it
13:34:10 <Dave from B™> It's hard to see a lot in 4-6 hours...I wish there was somewhere cheap to stay in winter at OF
13:35:34 <Kevin L™😎> Here you are Dave:
13:36:06 <Dave from B™> Can you help me build it?
13:36:32 <GO GIANT> SL Frontier cabins are the cheapest lodging, same price as at the OF Lodge
13:37:24 <Dave from B™> I forgot about the big expense is just getting to OF....Maybe 20 of us could fit in a SL cabin:D
13:37:46 <Kevin L™😎> You going to take shifts?
13:38:35 <Dave from B™> Sounds great. you have the gazing night shift
13:39:14 <GO GIANT> the SL cabins are bigger than the OF Lodge
13:39:37 <Kevin L™😎> It is snowing in Flagstaff right now.
13:39:41 <Dave from B™> I've stayed there once a few years ago. They are big...lots of room for people on the floor:)
13:40:09 <Dave from B™> We stayed there in early May before OFL was open
13:42:22 <GO GIANT> rooms in the SL are twice the price
13:43:01 <GO GIANT> the heating is good too, very quiet and keeps steady temp
13:43:28 <GO GIANT> not like the noisy blowers in the OFL cabins
13:45:35 <BSK> Suddenly very lonely in here...
13:46:11 <Kevin L™😎> Ready for the game toKnight kc?
13:54:47 <kcmule> ready KL
13:55:29 <Kevin L™😎> Have to see if they have it together yet. Not been a good start.
13:55:56 <Kevin L™😎> But we still love them.
13:56:45 <Kevin L™😎> Really odd that Vegas would become a big hockey and curling town. All we need is a Tim Hortons.
13:57:20 <kcmule> hope they still support them when they arent doing well
14:04:32 <Kevin L™😎> I think they should do pretty well.
14:04:35 <GO GIANT> could end up like the redskins where they dont have a ticket waiting list any more
14:06:31 <Dave from B™> waiting list? That is a shock
14:06:55 <Dave from B™> My college roommates wifes parents had season tickets for years and talked about how long the waiting list was
14:09:24 <GO GIANT> yep, they are selling individual tickets now
14:10:54 <Dave from B™> That's what's happen when ticket prices keep going up and you never have a good team
14:13:42 <Dave from B™> 20, I'm assuming you have used the norris phone before?
14:15:09 <GO GIANT> we dont have a good owner
14:15:19 <GO GIANT> getting rid of him would help
14:18:32 <Dave from B™> Good luck with that
14:19:16 <Kevin L™😎> Kind of like the raiders
14:19:45 <GO GIANT> he is making a ton of miney still so hes not giving it up
14:21:47 <Dave from B™> Not sure what ownership groups of Seahawks, Trail Blazers and Sounders will look like after Allen's passing
14:22:37 <Dave from B™> Maureen has posted F & GF
14:24:55 <ynpvisitor9> maybe his family will run the teams now, he must have left them to someone
14:25:42 <Dave from B™> He has no kids
14:25:56 <ynpvisitor9> was he married?
14:26:25 <ynpvisitor9> maybe a nephew or something? Hard to believe someone with his smarts would not have left someone in place
14:27:18 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure about wife. Since he has been sick for a long time, I'm sure he had a plan
14:37:07 <GO GIANT> he has a sister
14:37:47 <GO GIANT> NFL requires owners have a succession plan
14:38:19 <Kevin L™😎> So we may see the seachickens in pink all year next year?
14:39:25 <GO GIANT> good job Micah left
15:06:39 <Dave from B™> I have to sign off...tending to my fresh case which seems to be freezing everything. Have a good evening everyone!
15:18:29 <Kevin L™😎> Dave broke his fresh case.
15:27:53 <LindaG1> Daisy
15:52:58 <LindaG1> Lion
16:08:43 <ynpvisitor84> BH looks ready
16:09:19 <LindaG1> Hopefully during daylight
16:10:48 <Michael> I'd enjoy that, especially if I'm not afk when it happens.
16:10:58 <Michael> Nice OF
16:26:11 <ynpvisitor84> That is it, I now think we need to stop global warming. By 2099 the price of beer will double because of climate change.
16:26:58 <ynpvisitor84> Don't know who the rocket scientist is who figured it out. Not like it will not more then double by then just for inflation.
16:27:32 <ynpvisitor84> By then you will just walk up t a machine and ask for it to make a beer anyway.
16:30:36 <Michael> Haven't read the article, but doubling in 80 years is compound growth under 1%. Hard to get too worked up over that.
16:31:18 <Michael> We'll see what happens to the price of coffee, chocolate, and other fun things in the meantime.
16:32:24 <Michael> Is that Marmot Cave or Mouth or something else? I don't quite know where those features are?
16:32:25 <ynpvisitor84> No, not Chocolate!
16:32:57 <ynpvisitor84> Can not help on that. I know nothing of the odd ones.
16:33:08 <LindaG1> A splash there is hope
16:38:27 <ynpvisitor84> Looks like a bear sleeping on the bench by BH.
16:39:00 <ynpvisitor84> It moved, just a person.
16:40:19 <LindaG1> Looks like people with a dog
16:40:24 <Michael> As long as it's not both a bear and a person next to each other.
16:41:26 <ynpvisitor94> Marmot cave
16:41:30 <ynpvisitor94> now
16:41:52 <ynpvisitor94> between bee steam and scissors steam behind boardwalk
16:42:26 <ynpvisitor94> bee steam keeps covering it
16:42:30 <Michael> Thanks.
16:42:33 <ynpvisitor94> just fyi
16:43:40 <ynpvisitor94> lasts about 2 to 3 minutes
16:44:05 <LindaG1> Do I have it positioned correcly?
16:45:28 <ynpvisitor94> yes, see light steam coming behind boardwalk just below grassy area
16:47:34 <LindaG1> To the left of the people?
16:48:10 <ynpvisitor94> the light steam is above the empty bee bench
16:48:44 <ynpvisitor94> looks like it is getting ready again
16:48:46 <ynpvisitor94> there
16:48:48 <LindaG1> Ok
16:48:59 <ynpvisitor94> Marmot's cave
16:50:06 <Michael> Nice to know another geyser out there. Thanks for pointing it out.
16:50:22 <ynpvisitor94> welcome
16:50:48 <ynpvisitor84> Hope it fares better then the one I saw today. It looked like a badger moved in.
16:51:22 <ynpvisitor94> time to go. enjoy the evening. I sure hope those people aren't waiting for bee
16:51:42 <ynpvisitor84> Bee any minute
16:52:03 <ynpvisitor94> I am back
16:52:03 <Kevin L™😎> :bee:zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
16:52:13 <ynpvisitor94> I thought we had bee earlier today
16:52:39 <ynpvisitor9> Bee before midnight
16:52:40 <ynpvisitor84> 4am
16:52:43 <Kevin L™😎> About 0400
16:52:52 <ynpvisitor94> I guess it was Grand I watched
16:54:24 <ynpvisitor84> Danger, Danger, they left their bomb on the bench.
16:55:45 <ynpvisitor94> probably went to indy watch position number 84
16:56:37 <ynpvisitor94> nice sunset
16:56:38 <ynpvisitor84> Well, time to prepare a burnt offering.
16:57:00 <Micah-computer> That's some wonky lighting.
16:57:48 <ynpvisitor84> They went to watch that famous feature Anemone.
16:57:49 <ynpvisitor94> I bet farther back it isn't wonky at all
16:58:25 <ynpvisitor94> Marmot cave
16:58:37 <ynpvisitor84> Sailors should be happy.
16:58:56 <Micah-computer> Wow, you actually can see Marmot Cave from here.
16:59:24 <ynpvisitor94> mostly steam but occasionally water
17:00:33 <ynpvisitor94> tahtah, hope bee goes soon
17:00:44 <Kevin L™😎> Good Knight
17:01:31 <Michael> 'night, 94.
17:13:19 <ynpvisitor103> :lion:
17:13:19 <LindaG1> Lion
17:14:36 <Kevin L™😎> 🦁
17:15:11 <Micah-computer> Lion is just a gorgeous Geyser.
17:15:44 <LindaG1> Beehive and lion together would be nice
17:40:06 <LindaG1> Riverside?
17:41:31 <Michael> Right now All I see is Grotto, and some amller clouds to its left.
17:41:37 <Michael> smaller
17:52:53 <LindaG1> Night all
17:54:03 <LindaG1> The stars look nice
17:54:53 <Kevin L™😎> Good moonlight
17:56:07 <LindaG1> OF might go
17:56:20 <LindaG1> Ill wait
18:04:30 <LindaG1> Daisy i think
18:04:57 <ynpvisitor84> Taller then old fizzywig
18:06:05 <Kevin L™😎> That is Daisy
18:06:52 <LindaG1> Now for real, goodnight
18:11:40 <ynpvisitor84> I see an alien. No one in their right mind would be out there. But I am talking about people that set around waiting to see hot water spurt out of the ground.
18:12:21 <Kevin L™😎> 👽👽👽👽
18:12:21 <ynpvisitor84> Too fuzz for indy. back in the daylight, maybe
18:16:18 <LindaG> Is that beehive? Maybe lion
18:16:44 <Kevin L™😎> Lion
18:19:00 <Michael> Grand
18:19:17 <LindaG> Wow
18:19:45 <Kevin L™😎> Not lit like last Knight
18:23:50 <Kevin L™😎> Goal!
18:24:52 <Michael> 31 degrees at OF. Just about cold enough for hockey.
18:25:29 <Kevin L™😎> Colder than Vegas!
18:26:19 <Kevin L™😎> !loaG Offside. Call reversed.
18:27:03 <Michael> Aurum?
18:27:51 <Kevin L™😎> I was wondering. Sort of looks like it but fuzzy.
18:28:08 <Kevin L™😎> Down now so it probably was.
18:29:04 <Michael> I'm pretty confident, all things considered, but will log with a ? anyway.
18:29:45 <Kevin L™😎> Sounds good to me. Nothing up there now.
18:45:03 <Kevin L™😎> Yea. Goal. 1st poer play goal this year!
19:09:56 <Kevin L™😎> Wow. A short handed goal!
19:10:10 <Kevin L™😎> No wonder kc left the room.
19:11:24 <Michael> Lion. Too big to be just a roar.
19:11:47 <Kevin L™😎> Right on time.
19:32:48 <Michael> OF
20:12:22 <Michael> Lion
20:12:55 <Kevin L™😎> Been a good Knight for Lion.
20:37:37 <Kevin L™😎> Daisy ie
20:37:51 <Michael> Daisy
20:41:04 <Michael> Big cloud from the Grotto-Giant area too.
20:45:44 <Kevin L™😎> That is a nice one. Probably Rocket Major.
20:47:08 <Michael> I've got to give up on Beehive for the night.
20:49:05 <Kevin L™😎> Well we had a good Knight here but the Dodgers are still playing
20:49:18 <Kevin L™😎> I will stay up for a bit
20:50:09 <Michael> Hopefully Beehive goes in the moonlight.
20:51:07 <Kevin L™😎> For sure. Dogers are tied in the bottom of the 9th so I may be up a while.
21:11:25 <ynpvisitor42> Its gonna end this inning
21:12:38 <Kevin L™😎> I hope so
21:26:03 <ynpvisitor42> I lied
21:42:38 <Kevin L™😎> Would you believe 12?
21:43:42 <ynpvisitor42> We’re out of good pitchers since wood is out
21:44:27 <Kevin L™😎> I think Puig took care of some wood the last game.
21:49:56 <ynpvisitor42> Haha. Someone needs to get on base before turner bats
21:55:22 <ynpvisitor42> Almost time for game 5!
21:56:03 <Kevin L™😎> If they are still Playing game 4 do they start game 5?
