03:23:53 <Joe> Good morning Craig
03:24:16 <CraigC> Morning, Joe
03:36:08 <Joe> Sprinkler
03:44:16 <Joe> Daisy
03:47:52 <Joe> someone out early
03:49:22 <CraigC> looks to be going somewhere with purpose
03:49:33 <CraigC> Graham!!!
03:49:50 <Joe> Hi Graham
03:50:05 <Graham> The selector on my phone doesn't always give the right nick
03:50:39 <Graham> Morning. Thanks for the overnight times. I was hoping for another long Grand interval to push it into daylight again
03:51:15 <Graham> I am still in my cabin and breakfast is my purpose
03:51:35 <Joe> good purpose
03:52:24 <Joe> Does the SL feed well in the winter season
03:52:31 <CraigC> what is your itinerary today?
03:53:30 <Graham> Same as summer, best food in the OF area. Pretty food. I get the buffet so I can eat fast in the morning. Dinner menu is varied
03:56:54 <Joe> hopefully Grand will push 7+ this morning but I believe there have been some Turbans allready
03:59:13 <Joe> looks like another Turban
03:59:22 <Joe> No GRand
03:59:33 <Graham> It's in its window. Turban starts hours before the window
04:00:16 <Joe> just turban
04:00:36 <Graham> I heard a guide say he had just seen the first turban.....nope it had been erupting multiple times before the window opened
04:01:17 <Graham> Looks like another crisp morning, the snow looks sparkly
04:01:34 <Joe> this one is atleast #4
04:02:10 <Joe> that I could see
04:04:32 <Graham> You missed some. Nice to see more NG sightings. Yesterdays was amazing and a little rainbow at the top
04:16:34 <Joe> + 15 in basin this am
04:17:38 <Joe> 0 -n Thermopolis
04:17:44 <Joe> Grand
04:18:25 <CraigC> he didn't make it out in time, dang
04:19:26 <Joe> nope he has not had his first slice of bacon yet
04:20:14 <Joe> there is pump again
04:20:51 <CraigC> yeah, my feed is pretty blurry but it stood out
04:21:12 <Joe> nice steam from NG
04:25:42 <Joe> Sprikler
04:30:53 <Joe> Castle was looking almost for a moment
04:34:09 <Joe> OF
04:41:47 <CraigC> clouds really cleared out, could be a really nice day for G
05:02:54 <Joe> Castle
05:06:19 <Joe> none of the east coasters have signed in this am, strange
05:07:27 <Dave from B™> Morning Joe, Craig
05:07:28 <Joe> I did shower and change :)
05:07:39 <Joe> Hi Dave
05:07:56 <CraigC> hey Dave, how's it going?
05:07:58 <Dave from B™> haha. Maybe, they are taking 3 day weekends
05:08:26 <Dave from B™> It's going great. No new snow in the last 24 hours
05:09:34 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:14:36 <Graham> The OF eruption was nice and crumbly. Was considering going down to Grand but saw it was ie
05:14:45 <Graham> Rumbly
05:15:48 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham. 6 Grand intervals in a row over 6 hours.
05:16:18 <Dave from B™> off to Black Sand?
05:17:33 <Joe> Last night there was one lone Lion (maybe Bee) hard to tell, that lion was posted at 2016, did not see any following
05:18:09 <Joe> Kevin posted that Lion
05:19:22 <Graham> Yes Dave, headed out the back door so no wave th is morning
05:19:49 <Joe> Castle appears to be minor but I'll wait a bit
05:21:23 <Dave from B™> taking shortcuts!
05:21:29 <Graham> I will be back for Grand later
05:22:07 <ynpvisitor37> How things at Giant?
05:22:20 <ynpvisitor37> Just saw a couple hot periods the other day logged but not much since?
05:23:37 <Graham> I didn't go down there yesterday, never got past NG. Will crack this afternoon
05:32:40 <Dave from B™> Have fun Graham. I'm anxious to hear what Black Sand Pool is doing.
05:33:47 <CraigC> before he cracks this afternoon
05:34:31 <Joe> :)
05:34:51 <Dave from B™> haha. I was trying to let that one slide. Thanks, Craig!:D
05:35:02 <CraigC> LOL
05:35:30 <CraigC> I tried.... alas, you tossed me some bait
05:36:14 <Dave from B™> It didn't take you long to catch on. You have to be careful what you type around here.
05:42:25 <Joe> Do you realize that if we had given the Gov't control of the internet like they wanted a few years ago, we would not be able to be here now!
05:43:03 <CraigC> ughhh
05:43:41 <Dave from B™> That would have forced an end to the shutdown. Imagine the uproar.
05:44:19 <ynpvisitor91> What uproar. No communication.
05:44:29 <Joe> How would we roar?
05:46:02 <CraigC> I've had to use so much more restraint lately in not speaking my thoughts at people that are so blind from their party loyalty
05:47:38 <Dave from B™> Yeah. Why can't politicians see that most people are in between far left and far right
05:48:05 <Dave from B™> Ofcourse, the only people who donate to politicians are those 2 factions
05:51:34 <Ryan> We gonna have SB today?
05:51:48 <CraigC> hoping so
05:54:07 <ynpvisitor37> 20% chance
05:55:18 <Dave from B™> Tomorrow is Giant and SB Day
05:55:51 <Dave from B™> It would be nice to see SB shorten its interval this time
05:56:10 <Joe> I like that, Dave
05:56:41 <Joe> G and SB day that is.
05:57:35 <Ryan> I am doing an interesting little analysis: comparing the frontal areas of eruption plumes
05:58:52 <Joe> That plume is in the right place for Giant but not large enough
05:59:01 <ynpvisitor37> None of the "shortening" that's occured have been a trend
05:59:11 <ynpvisitor37> but rather single eruptions outside of the trend upwards
05:59:33 <Dave from B™> 37, that is true
05:59:47 <Dave from B™> General trend has been lengthening
06:00:26 <ynpvisitor37> From the historical record and what Ryan put together it should shorten again but we don't have enough data points on winter eruptions during active periods
06:01:06 <Ryan> I think between mid February and end of March we will see a shortening. But I think it will be pretty rapid.
06:01:08 <Joe> It started 0752 but appears to be Turban/Vent area
06:01:13 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, we get lots of data points this winter
06:04:42 <ynpvisitor73> why do you think that Ryan?
06:05:16 <Ryan> That just seems to be when the trend shoots up. It always liked spring for some reason.
06:05:33 <Ryan> And that would be in the time frame for the build up again.
06:05:34 <Ryan>
06:05:44 <Ryan> Cool little plot. Heights of various geysers.
06:06:42 <ynpvisitor109> That's great!
06:07:38 <Ryan>
06:07:42 <Ryan> Another one, frontal area.
06:07:49 <ynpvisitor73> wonder if it liked spring, or if that's when there were observers
06:08:20 <Ryan> Thats the one I was interested in. The thought occurred to me that even though the Giant I saw was only 140ft tall it was also 100+ft across and likely had the same frontal area as a North Funtion.
06:08:28 <ynpvisitor37> My guess is that it's related to overall ground water level function
06:08:47 <ynpvisitor37> There's a delay between when spring melting an ground water recharge happens
06:08:53 <Ryan> 73, I think it likes Spring. Historically its shortest intervals have been around then and then again around fall.
06:09:22 <Ryan> I wont wager to guess why. Its just what I have noticed looking back at previous active phases.
06:09:28 <Dave from B™> so is Morning wider than Fountain?
06:09:57 <Ryan> I do know it doesnt like disturbances. So you are better off in seasons without disturbances (Spring)
06:10:02 <Ryan> Dave, Morning was not on that plot.
06:10:44 <Ryan> Something is happening by Groblant.
06:11:05 <ynpvisitor102> of
06:11:52 <ynpvisitor37> No data to back up my statement that it's related to ground water trends just "looks like it"
06:12:32 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I know it wasn't on your graph. Was just wondering if anyone had an opinion.
06:13:09 <Ryan> 37, well when you relate it to disturbances you also relate it to water levels.
06:13:23 <Ryan> Dave, Morning averages... what? 150ft tall and 80ft wide at its best?
06:14:04 <Ryan> That is 12,000ft². Somewhere between a Great Fountain super burst and the smaller of the Steamboats seen this year
06:18:00 <Dave from B™> No doubt SB is the widest
06:22:26 <Ryan> Steamboat had the most frontal area. It was not the widest though.
06:23:37 <Dave from B™> I suppose there is a difference in the 2. It's in the perspective
06:25:08 <Ryan> Well, no. Frontal area is an area. It is in square feet. Youre talking width - which is height on its side ;)
06:25:29 <Ryan> Unless by "widest" you meant area.
06:26:16 <Dave from B™> I know what I meant:D
06:26:53 <Dave from B™> ok then....what is the widest? Great Fountain?
06:26:58 <Ryan> I don't :D
06:27:06 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
06:27:20 <Ryan> Fan and Mortar, at its widest, hits around 200ft
06:27:32 <Ryan> This is not accounting for wind, of course.
06:27:33 <Dave from B™> yep...I would agree
06:27:45 <Ryan> Great Fountain I had at 55ft.
06:27:48 <Kevin L™🌵> How wide was Excelsior?
06:27:59 <Ryan> 300 - but it wasnt on the list lol
06:28:14 <Ryan> Neither was Semi-Centennial (350ft tall and probably 100ft wide)
06:29:21 <Dave from B™> Really, S-C was that big?
06:29:43 <Dave from B™> Or, is that Jim Bridger measurements?
06:30:33 <Ryan> Photos lol
06:30:45 <Ryan> It was pretty big
06:32:51 <Joe> Daisy
06:33:39 <ynpvisitor80> Daisy ie
06:42:20 <Dave from B™> BBL. Time to see the Dr
06:42:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Go Giantess!
06:45:00 <Joe> Riverside
06:45:33 <ynpvisitor80> pretty
06:52:24 <Ryan> LaGuardia is getting shut down today
06:52:41 <Ryan> The FAA stopped all flights into LAG because of staffing issues because of the shutdown
06:54:13 <CraigC> maybe people can just get loans for planes, or ask their grocery stores to help them get there
06:55:08 <Ryan> Mystery flight attendants?
06:56:53 <Casey> There should be a punishment for saying "Go Giantess!" without context. I was half expecting to see it ie when that was the first thing I read
06:57:55 <Ryan> GO EXCELSIOR
06:58:05 <ynpvisitor28> Casey, thank you, yes! I had to go back to the beginning and read the whole day of conversation!! :p:p:p
06:58:20 <Casey> What? Excelsior is ie?
06:58:35 <Ryan> No clue, just felt like saying it
06:59:20 <Casey> Just playing with you Ryan.
06:59:26 <Casey> I'm not that gullible... normally
07:00:47 <ynpvisitor28> I would hate to be married/partners to Pelosi or Trump. Besides the yikes factor, can you imagine trying to pick out a paint color?
07:01:17 <Ryan> Thanks, Steph, I just spit coffee on the computer
07:01:31 <Steph> Ryan, YAAAAAS!
07:01:43 <CraigC> LOL
07:02:41 <CraigC> was going to make a paint-related joke, but will use restraint
07:04:25 <Casey> I'm just impressed you have a "paint-related joke".
07:05:01 <Steph> Me too. I'm trying to figure it out, but I got nothin'.
07:05:07 <CraigC> improv...
07:05:35 <CraigC> anyone get upset if I say something about POTUS?
07:05:47 <ynpvisitor80> no need to walk on eggshell
07:06:53 <CraigC> if Melania painted all the walls orange, then we would never have to see her husband ever again
07:06:57 <Casey> My rule (just to be cordial), feel free to insult politicians but don't insult the people who voted for them. It's a hard line to walk though.
07:07:01 <Ryan> I used to be the only one who would get upset by comments about Republicans...
07:07:06 <Ryan> ...then I learned.
07:07:26 <Steph> Casey, I like that rule VERY much!
07:07:54 <ynpvisitor65> no matter which side you are on, I think we all pretty much want the same thing.
07:08:38 <ynpvisitor80> get this conversation out of the way before the moderator shows up
07:08:39 <Ryan> The big plumes by Giant and Giantess keep startling me this morning
07:08:43 <ynpvisitor65> lib or cons you want best for your family.
07:09:29 <Joe> yes plumes are extra large today
07:09:40 <Steph> Ryan, me too, and I don't know enough to know what the heck is happening.
07:09:49 <Ryan> Its cold lol
07:09:52 <Ryan> Thats the short version
07:09:59 <Ryan> If either erupted you'd know
07:10:01 <Joe> :):)
07:10:18 <Steph> Phew! OK, and you guys would say so.... hurray!
07:10:46 <Ryan> Its been a long time since we have seen Giantess on the webcam - I almost forget what the start looks like. You'll know, there is no mistaking that much steam.
07:10:52 <Steph> Anyway, the gog on the static is from giantess?
07:11:17 <Joe> The fog is too
07:11:21 <Casey> Giantess is on the far right edge of the frame
07:11:27 <Casey> Right of OF
07:11:49 <Steph> Yes, and it's super foggy/goggy today, yes?
07:12:10 <Joe> on stream yes but static left
07:12:32 <Steph> Yeah, on the static.
07:13:02 <Casey> Yes
07:14:17 <Casey> I'm (wrongfully) jumping to all kinds of exciting conclusions today. "Cascade - NZ" on GT got me too.
07:14:19 <Joe> temp has dropped 5 deg F in a couple of hours
07:20:04 <KittyM> How do we get reports from NZ? Any cameras there?
07:20:28 <Ryan> There are geyser gazers there visiting
07:20:35 <KittyM> nice!!
07:20:40 <ynpvisitor37> Ironically two groups of gazers in as many weeks
07:20:57 <KittyM> wow
07:21:09 <KittyM> I've been there, would love to go back
07:35:59 <ynpvisitor20> How did Graham get frI’m Black Sand basin to Biscuit?
07:36:27 <Ryan> Wiggled his nose and blinked twice?
07:36:39 <Ryan> Sorry, its friday, I have only had coffee, and I am punchy :D
07:36:58 <ynpvisitor73> boots?
07:40:11 <ynpvisitor80> easy, float the river
07:43:01 <CraigC> my guess is stuck his thumb out and hitched
07:43:18 <CraigC> or met someone there and asked
07:53:36 <Joe> OF
08:04:43 <CraigC> I'll be the SB sacrifice, and take off for a bit to the store. :)
08:08:24 <Casey> All eyes on seismo
08:10:31 <ynpvisitor73> Jewel is a nice geyser, neat that G is there
08:12:42 <Steph> Agreed. I love Biscuit and Black Sand both. Gorgeous!
08:18:56 <Steph> Welp, gotta run. Hope to see ya'll later today!
08:21:11 <Kevin L™🌵> FYI Casey the last time Giantess erupted Dave was in a dental chair.
08:21:42 <Eric> Is Dave at the dentist this morning?
08:21:46 <Eric> and good morning :-D
08:22:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Dr appointment
08:22:34 <Joe> no but he is at the Doctors, does that qualify?
08:22:56 <Kevin L™🌵> We can hope.
08:23:01 <Joe> sorry Kevin slow typer
08:24:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder if my "Lion" was a BH last knight. I was on iPad so I couldn't see it too well and it was dark.
08:25:26 <Joe> I think not, there were at least two Lions after
08:26:23 <Kevin L™🌵> OK. It looked more like a Lion but who knows.
08:26:25 <Joe> The GOSA overnight looks like Lion
08:27:35 <Joe> i also think it was ini, appeared to start~2014
08:29:02 <Eric> lot of steam on static near bhi
08:30:16 <Eric> and now it's gone...
08:30:50 <Eric> good plate steam column
08:31:03 <Eric> can't see anything without zoom though :-(
08:31:53 <Joe> Lion should be in Jeff from CT's windo about now, it has been trying
08:32:07 <Joe> window*
08:32:54 <Joe> noise at Steamboat seismo
08:34:56 <Ryan> I see that
08:40:29 <Casey> I'm guess snow falling off trees
08:41:57 <Casey> *guessing
08:43:05 <ynpvisitor80> you are guess
08:43:14 <ynpvisitor80> you are become the guess!
08:43:55 <Guess?> Better?
08:44:19 <ynpvisitor80> I guess
08:44:26 <Guess?> Well played
08:55:54 <CraigC> YNM showing something
09:03:38 <Dave from B™> ..
09:06:09 <CraigC> aaaaaannnnnd, flatlined
09:06:40 <Dave from B™> Yeah. a little non flat activity for a bit
09:09:05 <Casey?> Dave's back? I guess no Giantess.
09:09:33 <Dave from B™> not this time
09:10:21 <CraigC> did the Dr find anything erupting?
09:10:51 <Dave from B™> only a calcium deposit that is 3 times larger than 11 years ago
09:11:05 <Dave from B™> Surgery upcoming
09:11:25 <Dave from B™> 2-4 month recovery depending on if there is any rotator cuff damage
09:12:16 <Joe> DAISY
09:12:22 <CraigC> sorry to hear
09:12:46 <Eric> Yikes!
09:13:00 <Joe> Sorry Dave I was hoping for something less
09:13:01 <Eric> When are you having the surgery Dave?
09:13:33 <Dave from B™> Scheduler is calling early next week
09:13:53 <Eric> Hope you can still make it into the basin this spring!
09:14:18 <Eric> I guess Graham made it back to giant
09:15:09 <Eric> Maybe he hoofed it from biscuit
09:15:28 <CraigC> via Artemisia?
09:15:35 <Eric> I would assume so
09:15:39 <CraigC> Artimesia
09:15:57 <CraigC> sp?
09:15:59 <Eric> Bears should be all sleepy right now :-D
09:17:03 <Eric> I assume an arty eruption in the winter would be impossible to see :-P It hard enough in the heat of the summer
09:18:39 <Dave from B™> Eric, I'm not planning on changing anything
09:19:02 <Dave from B™> I want to get a month of recovery under my belt before I head to Maui
09:19:32 <Dave from B™> Carig, your first spelling was correct
09:19:37 <Dave from B™> Craig* :D
09:20:21 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
09:20:32 <Eric> ohh, right your tropical trip! I hope you can get in and get it done soon theen.
09:20:58 <Eric> I have started doing some body weight exercises...including planking :-P
09:21:25 <Dave from B™> Shoulder press is what most likely reaggravated this injury
09:21:29 <Eric> Did something to my hamstring on Saturday and it's been sore all week :-(
09:21:57 <Casey> Is planking still a thing?
09:22:05 <Eric> I prefer non-equipment workouts.
09:22:07 <CraigC> I do pushups and squats(no weight)
09:22:20 <Eric> Those are both great Craig!
09:22:52 <Eric> Well, exercise planking is a thing, I think the fad of showing off planking has died, thankfully!
09:24:51 <Dave from B™> Yeah. Lower impact stuff is much better for us oldies
09:25:33 <Dave from B™> My favorite workout 10 years ago was a 40 minute run but now that stuff is history
09:26:24 <Dave from B™> Elliptical is now my friend
09:26:25 <CraigC> Dave, get a bike, or even an e-bike. I bought an e-bike last summer, and now I do 20 mile rides at least 5 days a week
09:26:44 <CraigC> not flat rides, either, 3000 foot climbs
09:26:59 <Dave from B™> nice
09:27:25 <Eric> Walking is awesome and gets you ready for hiking ;-)
09:27:27 <Dave from B™> I don't get a good sweat from a bike as I do from elliptical or running
09:27:43 <Eric> Got in 30 miles of power walking in this week.
09:28:01 <Eric> OF is ie
09:28:08 <CraigC> I need to lose a lot of weight before I can do much hiking.... downhill kills my feet
09:29:41 <Dave from B™> Craig...that's easy....don't walk downhill:)
09:30:09 <Dave from B™> If you see a hill coming just turn around and go back
09:30:12 <CraigC> LOL
09:31:03 <Eric> Yep...I was at that point in August Craig...300+ pounds, but really wanted to do more hiking. Changed diet and started walking!
09:31:42 <CraigC> good job.... we let it get ahead of us, and it's hard to get back
09:32:02 <Dave from B™> Eric, no way
09:32:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave needs to take up horseshoes.
09:32:11 <Eric> Thanks...still working at it. Took a LONG time to get my body that out of shape :-P
09:32:26 <Dave from B™> is so hard to lose weight when your older. My willpower is awful these days
09:33:22 <CraigC> same
09:34:02 <CraigC> but fortunately, I LOVE to mtn bike, so when weather allows, I am biking
09:34:30 <Eric> I get pretty adamant about something when I am focused on it.
09:34:46 <Dave from B™> I have a freind who bikes in the hills behind our subdivision> He's been trying to get me to go. I hope to this summer
09:35:16 <Joe> Eric, 6'5" 300 not that Bad, good job loseing what you have, you must look lean and mean now :)
09:35:18 <Dave from B™> Eric, I hear ya. Now that a wedding and a week in a swimsuit are coming up, I am MOTIVATED
09:35:36 <Eric> My cardio is one thing that has improved dramatically! I use to get out of breath on simple I can power up steep inclines and keep a pace that I can maintain.
09:36:05 <Dave from B™> Congrats on your efforts
09:36:31 <Eric> Yes, it's not horrible Joe...but I really want to do some longer hikes and that weight would just kill me on those hikes :-(
09:36:58 <Eric> I would like to be able to do a 20+ mile hike in a day.
09:37:21 <Eric> I think I could do it now...but it would be super painful at the end :-D
09:37:36 <CraigC> dang
09:38:51 <Eric> I use to bike a lot too Craig....then I got tboned by a car and mentally, I have a hard time getting back in the saddle :-(
09:40:02 <CraigC> Eric, I avoid riding around cars as much as I can. Too many distracted drivers
09:42:10 <CraigC> And I am not too proud to get off my bike on really technical stuff now.... nothing to prove to anyone or myself. Not worth being laid up instead of riding the next day
09:43:01 <Joe> When I get my shoulder replaced then my right knee replaced I should be able to exercise and hike to lose all the extra weight I have put on.
09:43:55 <Joe> My goal is to be able to do "uncle Toms" again :)
09:44:58 <Eric> I have never done Uncle Toms...but I really want to :-D
09:45:09 <CraigC> never done that, I'd probably need to lose 100#s
09:46:32 <CraigC> "Congressional leaders and President Trump have reached a tentative deal to temporarily reopen the government and continue talks on Trump’s demand for border wall money, Capitol Hill officials said Friday.
09:46:42 <CraigC> Bruce just posted that
09:47:01 <Joe> I enjoyed it when i did it, up slow and easy do not hurry it is a great trip
09:48:29 <Joe> down is easy:)
09:49:43 <CraigC> let's shoot for being able to do it in 2020
09:50:29 <CraigC> I think down would be harder and longer for me
09:53:30 <Joe> Suhoulder replacemetn next week knee late this year, I hope. 2020 is doable
09:53:51 <Joe> shoulder replacement*
09:54:09 <Eric> Long, steep down can really hurt your knees and thighs!
09:54:27 <Eric> I hope it goes smoothly Joe
09:54:32 <ynpvisitor80> BHI ?
09:54:38 <Eric> Up is just hard work!
09:54:40 <Eric> Yep
09:55:03 <Eric> lookks like it 80
09:55:18 <ynpvisitor80> just in time for the noon beehive
09:56:05 <CraigC> up is tough, but feels good, down is outright pain on knees and feet
09:56:14 <Eric> or super active bubblers
09:56:37 <Joe> I dont see indy yet
09:56:48 <Eric> You need bigger shoes if you are having downhill pain in your feet Craig
09:56:58 <Eric> Up your hiking shoes a size
09:56:59 <Joe> bubblers for sure
09:57:43 <CraigC> you don't get more blisters from your feet moving inside them?
09:58:09 <Dave from B™> I would like to do Mt Washburn again
09:59:23 <Eric> Not if your shoes are laced up will just keep your toes from smashing!
10:00:00 <Eric> I have never done washburn....that would be a cool hike. Do you mean the basin or the Mountain?
10:00:26 <Dave from B™> mountain
10:00:44 <CraigC> Eric, thanks for that tip, my toes Do smash going down hills
10:00:56 <Eric> I don't see indy on static...steam has dissipated.
10:01:24 <Eric> I have been reading a lot of hiking forums lately too Craig :-D
10:01:28 <Joe> Bee
10:01:41 <Eric> That looks like scissor spring!
10:01:51 <Eric> very left of BH
10:01:52 <Joe> nope big splash
10:02:08 <Eric> ohh, wind is right to left today
10:03:33 <Eric> looks like shoshone basin is about 8-9 miles in from the lone star parking lot. I think going there and camping would be a blast!
10:03:57 <Eric> I believe I need a bear food container to stay out there though
10:04:25 <Joe> one big enough for you
10:04:26 <CraigC> how far can you ride a bike on the lone star path?
10:06:04 <Eric> All the way to lonestar craig
10:06:53 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha Joe
10:07:08 <Dave from B™> Most campsites have a bear box or a bear pole
10:07:25 <Eric> Fast, easy ride out there. Also I highly recommend the old road behind grand prismatic that goes to fairy falls
10:07:57 <Eric> You can stop at the GP overlook, short steep hike and then park your bike a take a couple mile walk into fairy falls.
10:07:58 <Dave from B™> Eric, I've probably been on at least 100 miles of YNP trails. there are lots of fun spots
10:08:22 <Eric> Do the back country sites have food storage too?
10:08:57 <Joe> Indy now
10:09:11 <Dave from B™> I beleive they are mostly the bear pole system. So, you need rope and a bag to through up on the pole
10:09:36 <Dave from B™> Shoshone site even has a pit toilet
10:10:06 <CraigC> how do they service that?
10:10:16 <Joe> text sent
10:10:33 <Dave from B™> It's VERY small and least it was 10 years ago. basically a hole in the ground
10:12:31 <Joe> on static now
10:12:38 <ynpvisitor37> Steamy Bee
10:13:30 <Eric> Most places have given up on the rope and hang method from what I have been reading.
10:14:06 <Joe> does any one else see indy? or did I screw up
10:14:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like Indy on static.
10:14:25 <ynpvisitor37> I saw it
10:14:29 <ynpvisitor37> or thought it was there
10:14:37 <ynpvisitor79> :):):)
10:14:39 <ynpvisitor37> What else puts out that much steam
10:15:05 <Joe> it is there
10:15:05 <Eric> But I guess if they have poles available, it must be effective
10:15:24 <Kitt> you sure that isn't Grand?
10:15:25 <Eric> Yes, indy is ie on static
10:15:32 <Kitt> tall steamcloud
10:15:34 <Casey> I think it is Grand Kitt
10:15:40 <Casey> I was about to comment on it.
10:15:46 <ynpvisitor37> Big poof by Grand too?
10:15:47 <Casey> Very low contrast with the clouds though
10:15:51 <Kitt> I just got back inside from shovelling
10:16:11 <Eric> Well, graham is down there, should be posted soon
10:16:12 <Kevin L™🌵> 🌵😎
10:16:29 <Kitt> does it mean something when you shovel snow in a sweater with gloves and no coat?
10:16:32 <CraigC> maybe Graham walked over to Norris
10:16:35 <Eric> Would be the right timing since last turban
10:16:52 <Casey> You are on a roll today Craig
10:17:13 <Eric> Thats a big indy!
10:17:56 <Kitt> It is warmer in Yellowstone than Worland
10:18:13 <Kitt> now phone says we are one degree warmer
10:18:29 <Joe> 20 here Kitt
10:18:32 <ynpvisitor90> I wonder if Graham left Grand
10:18:53 <Kitt> I presumed Graham walked over to Biscuit
10:19:07 <ynpvisitor90> from Black Sand?
10:19:07 <Joe> +he is back
10:19:18 <ynpvisitor90> he posted Turban
10:19:18 <Kitt> ok
10:20:06 <ynpvisitor79> Gov to open.
10:20:12 <ynpvisitor90> no new Turban time, I think he left
10:20:24 <CraigC> tentatively....
10:20:40 <CraigC> "Congressional leaders and President Trump have reached a tentative deal to temporarily reopen the government and continue talks on Trump’s demand for border wall money, Capitol Hill officials said Friday.
10:20:45 <ynpvisitor90> wait, Congress left for the weekend, how is that possible?
10:20:52 <Kitt> or he decided to get Bee
10:20:55 <Dave from B™> 2 or 3 week reprieve?
10:21:04 <ynpvisitor79> 3 weeks. I still want to hurl
10:21:06 <ynpvisitor90> that is what I meant
10:21:13 <ynpvisitor90> he left Grand for BH
10:21:29 <Kitt> Beehive
10:21:40 <ynpvisitor90> maybe they will make a law making it illegal to shut down the government in those three weeks
10:21:52 <Dave from B™> They better get things figured out in 3 weeks
10:22:13 <ynpvisitor90> FAA should have gotten sick a LOT sooner
10:22:49 <Dave from B™> no kidding, 90. Hope someone doesn't lose your job or get audited over that one
10:22:50 <Eric> Hope he doesn't miss both!
10:22:53 <Kitt> such a nice bee
10:23:01 <Kitt> how are your roads Dave?
10:23:09 <Dave from B™> not good
10:23:28 <ynpvisitor90> no sun for Bee today
10:23:29 <Dave from B™> I saw a car in the ditch on my way to work this morning
10:23:38 <Kitt> that wasn't the right answer Dave
10:23:49 <ynpvisitor90> the truth hurts?
10:24:39 <ynpvisitor90> so the cam will move again soon, hurray for that
10:24:40 <Dave from B™> I call them as I see them. In fact, I-90 was just closed west of town going east...overturned semi
10:24:56 <Dave from B™> just go slow
10:25:02 <ynpvisitor90> is Grand erupting?
10:25:11 <KittyM*> I'm glad you said that about Bee. It made me realize my cam was paused!
10:25:35 <CraigC> KittyM*, LOL, I've done that, too
10:25:36 <Casey> Grand confirmed
10:25:51 <KittyM*> :)
10:25:51 <ynpvisitor90> so it's over
10:26:00 <Kitt> yes 90
10:26:33 <Kitt> Bill gets to drive
10:26:47 <ynpvisitor90> that was disguised plume
10:26:48 <CraigC> you guys called it, though.... it was tough seeing
10:26:55 <Kitt> I am going to pretend I am somewhere with nice roads
10:27:03 <Eric> Well, I haven't see anything officially passed not holding my breath on what Trump says..
10:27:33 <ynpvisitor90> smart man Eric
10:27:46 <Dave from B™> I already deleted my response Eric
10:28:21 <ynpvisitor90> Graham stayed at Grand
10:28:34 <CraigC> we may not get any new press releases if many more of the staff get arrested..... Bannon was just named
10:28:38 <ynpvisitor90> another one burst
10:28:57 <ynpvisitor90> Bannon is not his staff
10:28:57 <Eric> ohhh, I didn't see that Bannon was!
10:29:41 <CraigC> 90, you're right.... I should have made that a separate statement
10:29:49 <Dave from B™> He learned he liked firing people on Apprentice
10:31:11 <CraigC> "Steve Bannon is the 'high-ranking' Trump official in Roger Stone indictment who asked about future WikiLeaks releases in October 2016"
10:31:33 <Eric> ahhh, I thought they arrested him...that would be huge news
10:31:53 <CraigC> no, but he has been in talks with Mueller
10:32:28 <CraigC> Bannon was one of my fave guests on Bill Maher last year
10:32:48 <Eric> That dude creeps me....
10:32:55 <Casey> Bannon was on Bill Maher? What a combination
10:33:20 <CraigC> yeah.... he kind of schooled Maher, he is sharp
10:34:49 <CraigC> the worst guest ever was Stormy Daniels.... gag, nothing against her choice of work, but she had nothing of value come out of her mouth
10:34:56 <Eric> Lots of evil really sharp people in history :-(
10:35:30 <ynpvisitor90> he's already threatening an emergency to build his stupid wall
10:36:06 <Casey> Did he threaten it? I heard there is speculation that is his plan if there isn't an agreement within 3 weeks.
10:36:16 <ynpvisitor90> no, it was the end of his speech
10:36:22 <Eric> Well, if we have funding back, I look forward to web cam zooming and possibly logger data collection :-D
10:36:26 <Casey> wow
10:37:05 <CraigC> Eric, no kidding.... this is ridiculous to have this going on
10:37:22 <ynpvisitor90> government workers will still be in limbo
10:37:32 <Dave from B™> He doesn't have a democratic bone in his's his way or the highway
10:37:39 <ynpvisitor90> if it happens again, air traffic should walk out DAY 1
10:38:03 <CraigC> and border patrol
10:38:06 <ynpvisitor90> his way, based on non truths
10:38:45 <CraigC> I believe our IRS workers here in Ogden have a suit in the works
10:38:56 <ynpvisitor90> Casey?, are you unsure of who you are today?
10:39:23 <ynpvisitor90> There are many lawsuits across the country, those all take time though
10:39:47 <Casey> Yes, 90. It's one of those days
10:40:03 <Dave from B™> At least you got your name right...or did you?
10:40:19 <ynpvisitor11> Politics? I thought that was not allowed!
10:40:26 <TheRealCasey> Haha!
10:40:31 <Casey> Well done, Eric
10:40:33 <TheRealCasey> ohhh, fail :-(
10:40:39 <Dave from B™> It's a different subject but I think it's time for a 3rd political party in the middle
10:40:57 <Casey> Yeah. Mine actually did that too. I changed it back to "Casey" but it left the "?" on anyway.
10:41:09 <Eric> Oh well
10:41:17 <ynpvisitor90> not for 2020 Dave
10:41:29 <ynpvisitor90> please no, we just need to end this insanity
10:41:38 <Joe> Have to do /quit enter /join enter
10:41:43 <Eric> I like frogs!
10:41:56 <ynpvisitor90> I like geysers too
10:42:07 <Dave from B™> Did you see the weasel YNP post on FB?
10:42:13 <ynpvisitor90> here's to getting the cam back!!
10:42:21 <ynpvisitor90> The one where it was running? That was great
10:42:22 <ynpvisitor11> Insanity is a protected class now.
10:43:01 <Casey> Switch to ranked-choice voting and we might get a third party candidate in office. Otherwise, our election process only works with a two party system.
10:43:05 <CraigC> where is the weasel post?
10:43:10 <ynpvisitor28> I believe the government will be opened
10:43:24 <ynpvisitor90> til the 15th 28
10:44:03 <ynpvisitor11> They have not voted yet. Nancy gave them the day off, so not till Monday most likely before they vote.
10:44:36 <Dave from B™> I don't mean a weaker 3rd party. I mean one on level ground. And, I think, like the judicial brance, presidential candidates should have NO party affiliation
10:44:59 <Dave from B™> 3 parties for Congress would be better than 2 fighting
10:45:03 <ynpvisitor90> well for 2020, we need to just oust this one party...
10:45:19 <ynpvisitor90> and I think they have helped, with this shutdown
10:45:20 <ynpvisitor11> Yep, say not to the dummycrats
10:45:58 <Dave from B™> I'm for people who want to get along and actually get something done....who cares what party they are form
10:46:07 <Eric> I don't think there is any "easy" solution to all of our issues...hopefully we can get back into some kind of normalcy soon.
10:46:22 <Eric> Hi Graham!
10:46:41 <Dave from B™> Graham will help with that:)
10:46:42 <Eric> It was hard to see Grand from here...hopefully it was nice.
10:46:43 <Casey> Underneath all the craziness, I think both parties have many ideals that could be good for the country. I just have little faith in the ones that actually "represent" those ideals
10:47:13 <CraigC> SB???
10:47:20 <ynpvisitor11> Well people keep voting for them.
10:47:31 <Joe> Looks Like
10:47:32 <Graham> Another 1b Grand. Very poor fill. After turban I was moving to bridge for BH when the rumble went up behind me
10:47:35 <Dave from B™> wow
10:47:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like SB
10:48:04 <Joe> SB 1232 start?
10:48:25 <Casey> <10 days. I'll take it.
10:48:42 <Dave from B™> People who run for office have good intentions but the machine ruins them
10:48:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Were you able to get BH Graham?
10:49:09 <Graham> That figures. Too early for me but the canyon tours and as afternoon mammoth runs will see it
10:49:23 <Graham> No. Saw grand instead
10:50:14 <ynpvisitor11> Gosh, you can see grand again today in the moon light.
10:50:41 <Graham> Tristan may see SB if her canyon tour cant do Hayfen
10:50:59 <Graham> Moon won't be out that early
10:52:07 <LindaG> Good afternoon. Guess I missed bee, no internet. 🙁
10:52:58 <ynpvisitor59> SEISMO
10:53:03 <CraigC> LindaG, look at SB, though
10:53:34 <LindaG> I see the seismo yay
10:54:50 <Graham> 2 days too early
10:55:28 <LindaG> You dont think its SB graham?
10:55:59 <Dave from B™> Definitely not as big a seismo footprint but I think it is SB
10:56:03 <Graham> I leave Sunday. This would have been perfect then
10:56:14 <Graham> Looks like SB
10:56:17 <Dave from B™> woohoo #3 of 2019
10:56:44 <LindaG> Graham, You cant get there to see it?
10:57:21 <Dave from B™> Linda, not much transportation in YNP in winter
10:57:43 <CraigC> from what others have commented before, maybe it is less steam right now
10:57:50 <Dave from B™> Xanterra probably has 1 snowcoach a day from OF to Mammoth
10:58:10 <LindaG> Understand
10:58:23 <CraigC> Graham, did you hike that whole round trip to BSB, Biscuit and back?
10:59:02 <Dave from B™> Craig, just saw your weasel post question...let me check
10:59:05 <Casey> Is there a backlog of this seismic data somewhere? It would be interesting to compare the signatures of the eruptions this year.
10:59:34 <CraigC> wait, did dave just call me a weasel?
11:00:52 <Casey> Not you Craig; it's your post that is a weasel.
11:00:59 <CraigC> I know :)
11:01:00 <Dave from B™> Yellowstone Hub...KAR Photography
11:01:25 <CraigC> I dont think I am in the Hub group
11:03:08 <CraigC> Open group, I can see it, cool shot, thanks
11:05:03 <Dave from B™> haha Craig...I'll try to be more clear in my posts
11:05:57 <Dave from B™> There are a few elusive creatures that are tough to find. I had a 5 minute viewing of a wolverine on a snow patch at Logan Pass in Glacier. He was fun to watch
11:06:01 <LindaG> CraigC, its Yellowstone insiders hub on fa ebook
11:06:26 <CraigC> LindaG, thanks, I just requested to join.
11:06:59 <Dave from B™> Craig, the BSK you see in this room is the Yellowstone hub Admin
11:07:29 <LindaG> Wow I was going to accept but someone else beat me to it.
11:08:09 <Dave from B™> and, I guess Linda is too:)
11:08:29 <LindaG> I'm one of the moderators
11:09:26 <LindaG> But BSK started it and maintains it.
11:09:42 <Graham> Extended fill. Better than SB
11:10:54 <Joe> nice Graham maybe we will get another intermediate or better
11:12:46 <Dave from B™> That is a small SB footprint
11:13:39 <Joe> what is that blak moving off board walh near left benches?
11:13:56 <Joe> black
11:14:19 <Dave from B™> I think they are sitting on the edge of the bw
11:14:34 <Joe> oh people
11:14:35 <CraigC> Squatch!!!!!
11:15:27 <Joe> close together it looked like a black pile
11:15:33 <Eric> ghg17?
11:15:49 <Eric> Nice burst back there whatever it was
11:16:07 <Joe> is that near pump
11:16:26 <Eric> Yes, ghg17 and pump are close
11:16:34 <Joe> tks
11:16:43 <Eric> I believe it's to the left of pump
11:16:48 <Eric> from our perspective
11:21:08 <LindaG> I took this screenprint on November 29th. For comparison. Someone asked.
11:30:28 <Joe> 30 more minutes and we should see Sb on the gauges
11:41:48 <ynpvisitor7> Aurum
11:41:49 <ynpvisitor7> .
11:41:50 <ynpvisitor7> .
11:41:51 <ynpvisitor7> .
11:42:03 <Casey> Good catch
11:42:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess Kevin is away
11:44:18 <ynpvisitor90> weird looking SB on the seismo
11:44:28 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that
11:44:51 <ynpvisitor90> has it though? That short of a signature ?
11:45:25 <ynpvisitor999®> signal starts at 1232, before that is just background noise
11:46:13 <ynpvisitor90> yes, 999, though it does not really stay for very long before going back to normal
11:46:47 <ynpvisitor90> usually a few lines run into each other, not today
11:46:54 <ynpvisitor999®> it can go shorter, as it did on August 27
11:47:19 <Casey> There has been a lot of variety in the signatures. A few of the overnight ones I doubted but were confirmed the next morning
11:47:53 <ynpvisitor90> thanks. I don't remember one this short with no extended thickness in the lines
11:47:57 <ynpvisitor999®> we also have USGS' Tantalus gauge, which spikes about an hour to 90 minutes later
11:49:33 <Joe> Really nice Aurum on replay #7, nice catch, Graham posted it
11:49:38 <Casey> The really impressive one (in September I think) that had restarts didn't have a really strong signature if I remember correctly.
11:50:41 <Casey> I can't believe I just said "really impressive ONE" in relation to Steamboat
11:51:28 <Joe> :)
11:54:08 <LindaG> Joe, what is repplay #7, am I able to access?
11:54:13 <Joe> DAISY
11:55:14 <Joe> Linda I was talking to #7 who caught Aurum, I saw it on my replay
11:55:45 <LindaG> Gottcha
11:56:34 <LindaG> Aurum looked good on static also
11:58:26 <Joe> I wonder if you tube has a place to post live video, like I hear FB? does
11:59:12 <Casey> I believe someone tested out a youtube live feed at one point, but I don't remember what came of it
11:59:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I recall being said that the connection was too unstable
12:05:03 <CraigC> I swear I have seen feeds that were posted on FB but were live through youtube
12:05:57 <CraigC> does NASA use the FB live platform?
12:08:28 <Dave from B™> Good afternoon fishynp
12:10:50 <ynpvisitor999®> sigh. NG dropped @ 1409
12:10:58 <fishynp> Hello
12:11:31 <fishynp> Looks like we had a "weaker" SB eruption today?
12:11:45 <ynpvisitor999®> less noisy
12:12:04 <ynpvisitor999®> it could very well reach 400ft+
12:12:33 <fishynp> actually, less energy coupled to the ground.
12:12:53 <CraigC> during the last eruption, someone said something about more noise could be more steam, that the steam has more effect on the seismo than the water
12:13:04 <Dave from B™> That might be a stretch but tall no matter how you look at it
12:14:00 <Dave from B™> fishynp, don't you work for Univ of Utah seismo dept?
12:14:06 <fishynp> It definitely seems the energy from the steam phase is visible on farther stations better than the water phase.
12:14:07 <fishynp> yes.
12:15:00 <fishynp> In addition to my University of Utah Seismograph Stations duties, I am also the Chief Seismologist for the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory.
12:16:24 <Joe> water should be getting near the gauges
12:16:54 <ynpvisitor999®> we can probably see it shortly after 1430
12:21:00 <Dave from B™> We have some newbies here. I just wanted them to know who you were. Thanks
12:21:14 <ynpvisitor73> glad to hear you can get back to work fishynp!!
12:21:49 <fishynp> I work for the University of Utah, not the federal govt.
12:22:33 <Joe> OF
12:22:37 <Dave from B™> Doesn't the YVO consist of about 6 or 7 groups/agencies?
12:23:38 <fishynp> Yes. YVO is a "virtual observatory". The scientist-in-charge is a USGS employee but there are many member institutions including Yellowstone National Park and the University of Utah.
12:24:28 <ynpvisitor73> USGS has been furloughed? I remember the 2013 shutdown when they pulled the plug on the graphs
12:24:32 <Dave from B™> I remember Bill talking about that we you all got together last year in Garinder, I believe
12:24:41 <Dave from B™> we = when
12:25:10 <fishynp> As part of YVO, we are tasked to run the Yellowstone Seismic Network, locate earthquakes, and disseminate the information to all involved, including the public.
12:25:39 <fishynp> We have a "all hands" meeting every 2 years. For the last few years, it has taken place in Mammoth.
12:26:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I take it from that that you (unfortunately) don't run the Norris loggers :(
12:26:56 <fishynp> We do get funding from the USGS to run the network, so depending on how long the shutdowns last, we may see a lapse in funding and have to turn things off. We try not to do that as much as possible.
12:27:13 <fishynp> No, the Norris temperature loggers are run by either the Park Service or the USGS.
12:32:09 <Eric> Glad Graham got that Aurum!
12:32:55 <Eric> I wish we had some definitive research on the seismo relationship to steamboat eruptions.
12:33:14 <Eric> It's very interesting how they all look different on the YNM seismo
12:33:25 <Joe> Yes, Aurum also showed on the stream and static
12:33:52 <Eric> I am eager to read your paper on the work you did there fishynp!
12:34:29 <fishynp> Well, I put an array of around 30 instruments around SB this past summer and we are working up that data now. We recorded 4 eruptions.
12:36:53 <Eric> Yep, I look forward to read your findings.
12:37:24 <Eric> and review the raw data if/when you make it available.
12:37:57 <fishynp> It will definitely be made available.
12:40:29 <Dave from B™> Hi Jake...We're not talking about supply and demand today!:)
12:40:38 <Jake> oh, I'll leave then
12:41:24 <Jake> Steamboat stopped its increasing intervals? what about that clear upward trend in intervals?!!
12:42:12 <Jake> xkcd had a recent comic that sums up my feelings on geyser graph reading:
12:42:40 <Dave from B™> Jake, I can almost guarantee you the next one will be longer
12:43:10 <Dave from B™> I like it
12:43:16 <Jake> longer than this one at 9d or longer than 11d?
12:43:21 <Joe> :)
12:43:53 <Dave from B™> It seems like we are in a 2 steps increase 1 step decrease kind of pattern...longer than this one
12:44:15 <Joe> the comic is close to the truth
12:44:16 <Eric> ask always xkcd FTW!
12:44:54 <Eric> I will guarantee that the next one won't be the same exact interval!
12:45:29 <Eric> I believe it will be shorter or longer.
12:45:44 <Jake> only the boldest of stances taken here in geyser chat
12:46:06 <Eric> I will stake my prediction reputation on it!
12:48:56 <Jake> on geological timescales, all these intervals have been exactly the same
12:50:51 <Dave from B™> At this pace, with no disturbance.....35 eruptions this year. This is not a prediction!
12:51:29 <Joe> 1439 ns
12:51:38 <Joe> Riverside
12:52:40 <Jake> are you way delayed Joe?
12:54:13 <Joe> No I just found Rside on my recording
12:54:26 <Jake> ah, sneaky
12:54:40 <Dave from B™> Only 3 times in this eruption "series" of SB has it decreased its interval 2 times in a row. 2 were near the disturbance
12:57:54 <Joe> Water has reached the tantalus gauge
12:58:59 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe
12:59:06 <Jake> nice confirmation
12:59:19 <Jake> I forgot about that gauge
13:06:11 <Joe> According to the table on the gauge page 1400mst
13:07:48 <Joe> table indicates every 15 min
13:18:10 <Joe> Aurum
13:18:13 <Joe> .
13:18:15 <Joe> .
13:18:17 <Joe> .
13:20:04 <KittyM*> Thank you for the conversation with fishynp. As one of the newbies, I really enjoyed reading it.
13:23:47 <ynpvisitor999®> wow, Aurum under 2h? Where do I sign up?
13:24:44 <Joe> I deleted it, I was sure it was Aurum but way too short interval
13:26:51 <Betty> good afternoon
13:27:25 <Joe> Hello Betty
13:27:39 <Betty> hi Joe
13:28:03 <Betty> evening DG
13:28:54 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
13:29:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe, can you perhaps upload that questionable Aurum to youtube or something? Would help with determining whether or not this was a 1h36m interval Aurum
13:30:31 <Joe> I'll do that will take some time
13:32:08 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
13:40:44 <ynpvisitor34> Kevin isn’t here. It has to be Aurum
13:41:47 <Joe1> DG here it is the part i thought was 1517:58
13:45:03 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
13:45:20 <Betty> Hi Dave
13:45:30 <Casey> Hi Betty
13:46:05 <Betty> hi Casey?
13:46:07 <Eric> Hi Betty
13:46:25 <Betty> hi Eric
13:47:22 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... I cannot really say whether or not it's actually an Aurum or not. Might actually be preplay
13:47:52 <Joe> Thanks for looking
13:50:49 <Dave from B™> Aurum is especially hard to catch since no zooming is allowed
13:51:20 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head home. Have a great evening everyone!
13:51:36 <Betty> bye Dave
13:51:48 <Betty> same to you
13:52:01 <Joe> Bye Dave Good luck with the shoulder.
13:52:02 <Dave from B™> Betty, Casey is confused today, if you were wondering.
13:52:08 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Joe
13:52:21 <Betty> oh, ok :-)
13:52:49 <Betty> shoulder issues, Dave?
13:53:04 <Casey> I was more confused earlier. Now I've tried to change my name back and it doesn't work.
13:53:12 <Casey> I guess that does confuse me though
13:56:01 <Betty> OF
13:58:10 <ynpvisitor999®> try /quit, followed by /join
13:58:32 <Casey> Type that into the text box?
14:00:14 <Betty> yes
14:02:06 <Eric> Yep, what betty said :-D
14:22:34 <Casey> Did it work?
14:22:37 <Casey> Yay!
14:22:55 <Betty> :thumbsup:
14:23:00 <Casey> I know who I am!
14:38:57 <Casey> Daisy ie
14:50:20 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if Grotto is doing a marathon of marathons
15:05:20 <CraigC> White is in the Myriad?
15:05:55 <Casey> Sounds right to me
15:07:42 <CraigC> I'll have to pay better attention back there next time, We always drive along there from lower hams. That rock ruin feature intrigues me
15:14:50 <Eric> looks like graham just walked by
15:14:57 <CraigC> is that Graham?
15:15:06 <Eric> You can see white from the hill Craig
15:15:36 <Eric> That turnout up above hams is great on a rainy day. You can watch mugwump :-D
15:15:45 <CraigC> Eric, is it behind the Inn?
15:16:12 <Eric> Yep...back in those holes
15:17:01 <CraigC> We've hung out at that Mugwump turnout before, hard to get pictures there.

15:17:41 <Eric> There is the general area...soooo many holes!
15:19:12 <CraigC> yeah, it looks so cool back there early in teh AM with all the steam from so many holes
15:19:28 <CraigC> you can see the round rock ruin in the lower right
15:20:43 <Betty> wow, never saw that. What is it?
15:22:27 <CraigC> I just posted a pic of it on my FB, Eric do you have a way to share it here?
15:23:14 <CraigC> Betty, are you on FB?
15:23:24 <Betty> nope
15:23:26 <Eric> You mean this thing?,-110.8327894,37m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281377
15:23:43 <Betty> yes
15:23:55 <ynpvisitor25> That's great, the road is called Myriad Group road.
15:24:06 <CraigC> Eric, yes, that is it
15:24:08 <Betty> looks like an eroded kind of soda butte :-)
15:24:11 <Eric> I don't know how to share it :-P
15:24:39 <ynpvisitor25> Betty, you joined FB?
15:24:47 <Betty> no
15:25:07 <ynpvisitor25> I didn't think so
15:25:13 <ynpvisitor25> misread the chat line
15:25:20 <CraigC>
15:25:45 <CraigC> I don't use any photosharing sites anymore, used to have photobucket
15:26:26 <Eric> Here it is in quasi 3d:,-110.8317159,35a,35y,309.05h,71.91t/data=!3m1!1e3
15:29:06 <ynpvisitor83> The official name is "The Ruin"
15:29:27 <ynpvisitor25> what is it a ruin of?
15:29:36 <Larry in Denver> An old hot spring
15:29:43 <Betty> thanks, I´ve never been back there
15:29:45 <Eric> pre snow lodge arial:
15:29:48 <Eric> top right corner
15:30:47 <Larry in Denver> I sure wish the Google default was not fake trees. It's annoying to have to turn it off every time
15:31:43 <CraigC> Betty, do you use instagram?
15:31:43 <Eric> Hi Larry
15:32:04 <Larry in Denver> Hi all
15:32:32 <Larry in Denver> Amazing how many cabins used to be at OF. I remember camping in the OF campground in the late 1950s
15:32:48 <ynpvisitor25> what year is that photo?
15:33:31 <CraigC> Have you gone over and see where the old bridge used to be where the road went out of OF to West Thumb? I love to go explore the old areas around there
15:33:42 <Eric> This one is from 56:
15:34:30 <ynpvisitor25> I haven't Craig, sounds interesting
15:34:40 <ynpvisitor25> and thanks Eric, all these photos have been great
15:35:04 <ynpvisitor25> OF ie
15:35:17 <Graham> Of course NG stays up now
15:35:20 <CraigC>
15:35:41 <CraigC> google has images if you enter "ruin myriad yellowstone"
15:36:12 <Betty> great, thanks Craig :-D
15:39:40 <Eric> JSJ has an image of it, of course :-P
15:40:15 <CraigC> on google earth, you can see all the scarring from the military camp that was next to the Firehole northwest of OF. I'd love to be able to go see it. If you are on the boardwalk across the river from BH, you can see the old pathway over to it
15:41:51 <CraigC> those are some good shots in his album..... you almost need a ladder to take good pics of it
15:43:32 <CraigC> wowow, this is gorgeous right now
15:47:28 <Eric> Yes, really nice light!
15:57:05 <Eric> OMG....I just fixed the stupid user is unknown issue we have had forever!
15:57:31 <Eric> You should now be able to PM everyone all the time!
15:58:44 <Eric> hopefully there aren't any funky side affects I haven't you can never leave :-P
15:59:04 <Larry in Denver> That's terrific unless we are all now in Hotel California
15:59:37 <Test> I seemed to disappear just fine!
15:59:51 <Eric> Now I am back!
16:00:03 <CraigC> LOL
16:00:17 <Betty> hi Kevin
16:01:44 <Larry in Denver> Did that also fix the screen name is already taken issue?
16:02:42 <Eric> The only issue I know about that is if you logged on and changed browsers without /quit
16:03:04 <Eric> Usernames must be unique
16:03:41 <Eric> If you have 2 browser windows open with chat, they each have to have their own username
16:05:04 <Larry in Denver> None of those. Just an occasional click on my link to here and then instantly getting that error message for the automatically assigned user name
16:05:45 <Eric> Ahhh, it just picks it at random, so probably already taken
16:05:59 <Betty> Grand
16:06:10 <Eric> haven't run into that issue, so never looked into it
16:06:12 <Eric> Nice!
16:06:16 <Eric> Big plume
16:08:12 <Larry in Denver> I guess you could check that random # against the current list of users. I'd say it happens one in twenty times I get on here
16:08:22 <Eric> That feels awesome to have that issue resolved...bugged me for years now!
16:08:35 <Eric> Yep...probably could :-D
16:08:47 <Larry in Denver> Was it a simple error in code or bad logic?
16:09:05 <KittyM*> wow, that's nice!
16:10:04 <Eric> So, I believe the system was deleting a bunch of stuff on timeouts, thinking the user was offline...but then when they checked in, it wasn't testing correctly to make sure all their data was restored.
16:10:21 <Eric> aka...fully reconnecting
16:10:52 <Eric> So bad logic
16:11:22 <Eric> I just don't know PHP really well, so it took me a bit to traverse all of their logic :-P
16:14:18 <Larry in Denver> How old is this code?
16:16:14 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
16:16:18 <ynpvisitor999®> I think
16:16:43 <Betty> at least a nice plumme
16:17:49 <Betty> wb Kevin Depot
16:18:38 <Kevin Depot> Signal not too strong out here
16:18:58 <Betty> Happy Birthday my friend :-)
16:19:30 <Kevin Depot> Finishing a step stool for the Grandson.
16:19:38 <Kevin Depot> Thanks
16:20:04 <CraigC> Happy Birthday
16:20:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Happy birthday!
16:21:17 <Betty> I did not think you will have the time to sneak in today
16:21:47 <Kevin Depot> Thanks again
16:22:13 <Larry in Denver> Wow, 39 again
16:22:26 <Eric> The chat code is probably 20 years old :-P
16:22:49 <Kevin Depot> Yes Larry:)
16:22:50 <Eric> What?!?!?! Happy Birthday Kevin!
16:23:18 <Eric> Someday, I hope we meet in person at a geyser :-D
16:23:35 <Eric> or at least down in henderson/vegas area :-D
16:23:50 <Betty> of this I´m in advance, Eric :-)
16:24:13 <Eric> Yep....I know you guys got to hang out on the BW together!
16:24:32 <Eric> You are up very late Betty!
16:24:43 <ynpvisitor8> sometimes I lose my signal and while it's offline, someone else comes in and takes the #. I think that has to be just really good timing
16:24:48 <Eric> I at least hope you are having a beer or four :-D
16:24:50 <Betty> btw, I spoke to Thomas about holidays this year, and we may come to Portland
16:25:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching Castle
16:25:24 <Betty> night DG
16:25:30 <Eric> Awesome....would love to see you guys and possibly do a hike and dinner if you are available :-D
16:25:36 <Eric> Night DG
16:25:48 <Betty> that would be great
16:25:51 <Eric> I have to run this evening....wife is waiting on me to go out :-P
16:25:51 <Kevin Depot> I may do some short trips while the daughter is in Rexburg.
16:26:05 <Eric> Night All!
16:26:10 <Kevin Depot> Good Knight DG
16:26:18 <Betty> have fun, Eric. Say Greetings
16:28:09 <Kevin Depot> It was fun seeing Betty at the park. I didn’T get to see her when we were in Hana’s.
16:28:33 <Kevin Depot> Hanau. Stupid autocorrect.
16:29:59 <Larry in Denver> Have a good evening everyone. Time for dinner
16:30:59 <Betty> haha, I just started Elementary school when you were in Germany ;-)
16:31:16 <Betty> see ya, Larry
16:32:11 <LindaG> Happy birthday Kevin!
16:32:30 <Kevin Depot> Have fun
16:32:48 <Kevin Depot> Thanks Linda
16:33:08 <Betty> I call it a day, too. way time for sleep. Enjoy your evenings all. Have a great party tonight, Kevin
16:33:23 <LindaG> Goodnight betty

17:31:06 <kcmule> would be nice if lion would ini if Graham is still out there
17:57:02 <Graham> I left right after the NG minor. At dinner now
17:57:47 <Graham> So I was at NG when Grand had a 2b ...grrr
17:58:31 <Graham> Go to W Thumb tomorrow with Tristan
17:58:43 <Graham> NG had long fills today
