04:55:19 <LindaGt> Hi Craig, bwaggs and rice
04:55:54 <LindaGt> Rice, oh good luck!
04:56:32 <LindaGt> Hi Betty if your still here
05:01:20 <BWaggs> Morning
05:02:37 <LindaGt> Hi. Hows the weather up there?
05:03:10 <LindaGt> Is that grand?
05:03:50 <LindaGt> Hmm something tall but not grand
05:04:41 <KittyM*> Morning everyone
05:05:01 <LindaGt> Hi KittyM*,
05:05:02 <CraigC> hey Kitty
05:19:57 <Rice> I have all my windows open, 4 different campsites selected, wife has an accout open, with more, and open to start cliking at 7 am pst
05:20:37 <LindaGt> Rice, get ready, on your mark....
05:20:59 <Rice> 39 minutes
05:21:37 <LindaGt> I did that trying to get a cabin at roosevelt lodge last year.
05:21:38 <CraigC> wow, quite a feat to secure a site
05:22:56 <LindaGt> Is this the first day to book at Yosemite? Do they open for everything today?
05:26:12 <LindaGt> Clouds look they are blowing out
05:39:01 <Rice> 21 minutes
05:39:08 <LindaGt> Daisy
05:39:16 <LindaGt> Daisy
05:39:46 <Rice> I think I was less nervous trying to get Van Halen tickets back in the 80's.
05:41:05 <LindaGt> Haha it is nerve wracking
05:42:57 <CraigC> too bad they don't give annual park pass holders a day ahead of everyone else for reservations
05:43:31 <Kat> And Lifetime passes 2 days before HAHA
05:43:51 <LindaGt> Kat, yeah!
05:44:52 <CraigC> how much is a lifetime pass?
05:45:46 <LindaGt> They upped into aroundn90.
05:46:01 <LindaGt> Not 90, 80
05:46:05 <CraigC> only for people over 62?
05:46:12 <LindaGt> Yes
05:46:17 <CraigC> 4 more years
05:46:25 <Kat> It's 85.00 now - I got mine for 10.00 :)
05:46:34 <LindaGt> Me too
05:46:34 <CraigC> I hope they don't screw it up before then
05:47:43 <Kat> I was eligible right before the rate hike. All those years we pay the annual pass.
05:48:00 <Rice> 12 minutes, i hope my computer doesnt crash!
05:48:16 <LindaGt> Rice, lol hang in there
05:48:45 <Rice> I actauly like the way yellow stone does reservations, you pick a type of site, and they assign you one.
05:48:51 <ynpvisitor12> nice bubbler action at bee
05:48:57 <Rice> Having to dig through hundrends of sites to pick on is a pain.
05:49:44 <Rice> Crane Flats is closed that was my backup site, having to go farther out now.
05:49:44 <LindaGt> Yellowstone has a pretty good reservation system
05:50:17 <Rice> and this all or nothing on the 15th of the month is crap also
05:50:44 <Rice> I have all the other campground reserved for our summer trip except Yosemite.
05:50:47 <Kat> Bubblers for sure...
05:51:00 <LindaGt> Lion is purring
05:51:24 <LindaGt> Bubble baby bubble šŸ˜Š
05:57:05 <Rice> 3 minutes, I will be back
05:57:28 <Casey> Morning
05:57:30 <LindaGt> Good luck
05:57:39 <CraigC> hey Casey
05:58:11 <LindaGt> Morning casey
05:59:00 <Kat> Morning!
05:59:12 <Casey> Hi CraigC, LindaGt, Kat.
06:02:16 <LindaGt> Castle?
06:02:45 <LindaGt> Notbquite
06:02:53 <LindaGt> Not quite
06:08:43 <Kat> OF
06:16:38 <Rice> Well my wife got a site in Upper Pines, Yeah. All 6 of mine failed.
06:17:49 <CraigC> glad you guys got something
06:17:51 <Kat> Congrats!
06:17:59 <CraigC> LOL Hafnium
06:18:07 <ynpvisitor96> is Dave in Ha-va-ee?
06:18:12 <LindaGt> Congrats!
06:18:21 <CraigC> 96, yeah
06:19:13 <ynpvisitor96> thanks, I thought it was next week but hadn't seen him here for a few days.
06:19:41 <CraigC> nothing has been broken this week
06:20:00 <Rice> I hope she put the right dates in! I got something out a Hodgdon Mesdows also, so we should be good. Man that was nerve wracking
06:20:09 <ynpvisitor96> :(
06:20:19 <Rice> Worse part was, I clicked Book, and it came up with the Robot test, she didnt get that.
06:25:10 <LindaGt> Glacier staggers their reservations. So if you want may 2020 you do it in may 2019, then June, etc.
06:25:12 <CraigC> Rice, are you a Robot? If not, click here; :i:
06:26:33 <LindaGt> Kat your not allowed more than one Bee in 24 hours
06:35:38 <Kat> Bee in the Evening , Bee in the Morning! Sing along :lol:
06:41:00 <Kat> Castle
06:41:03 <CraigC> :castle:
07:01:31 <LindaGt> šŸ˜ŠšŸ it's working on it
07:04:24 <Kat> Would be really nice in this light!
07:05:39 <Half&Hafnium> Well, if the prediction is 0713, I'd think 1113 is about right. :-}
07:06:47 <Kat> :) EST time - My thoughts exactly!
07:17:01 <Half&Hafnium> BH was a little overdue yesterday
07:17:59 <Kat> It was...
07:28:16 <Half&Hafnium> Hot bubbler!
07:28:38 <LindaGt> Its teasing you
07:29:03 <Half&Hafnium> No doubt
07:29:35 <Kat> It is...did you jinx me and tell Bee to hold off for you?? :lol:
07:30:17 <Kat> Just kidding you know!
07:31:13 <LindaGt> Heehee it's our evil plan
07:31:19 <Kat> Maybe OF Bee duel
07:37:49 <Eric> Morning
07:38:03 <Katie> Hi, Eric.
07:38:20 <LindaGt> Hi Eric and katie
07:38:48 <Katie> good morning, Linda
07:39:03 <Kat> Hi Katie
07:39:15 <Katie> Hey Kat

07:49:28 <Sam> Hello all
07:49:46 <Eric> Hi Sam
07:50:05 <Katie> Morning, Sam.
07:50:15 <Eric> We are going to reach almost 70 here this weekend...woot!
07:50:36 <Eric> Starting to plan my Sunday hike already :-D
07:50:49 <Sam> Did I see the end of of when I logged in or was that just preplay?
07:50:58 <Sam> 60s for us next week!!
07:51:02 <Eric> preplay I assume
07:51:03 <Half&Hafnium> preplay
07:51:19 <Eric> Nice tag Jimbo :-P
07:51:30 <LindaGt> 68 on my open porch right now
07:51:59 <Eric> My daughter is contemplating studying chemistry & math in have any sage advice for her? :-D
07:52:02 <Sam> Omg jealous
07:52:10 <Kat> 78 here
07:52:22 <Eric> 78 is too hot!
07:52:27 <Mike J> Cracks me up that on Sam's post, "of" got the link to Old Faithful, whereas the actual reference to Old Faithful did not
07:52:52 <Mike J> Plus I always enjoy that writing about a link gets you a link to link
07:53:06 <Eric> OF
07:53:18 <Eric> or just big preplay
07:53:24 <Eric> OF
07:54:25 <Half&Hafnium> Real deal
07:54:34 <Kat> :)
07:54:59 <LindaGt> Solitary looks neat
07:55:09 <Kat> It does
08:00:45 <LindaGt> Kat sorry bee didnt go, illmtzkemgood care of it šŸ˜‰
08:01:08 <LindaGt> Oh my. I'll take good care of it
08:01:31 <Kat> OK Linda - you are the Bee winner! :) :( HaHa
08:02:14 <LindaGt> šŸ˜Š
08:19:40 <ynpvisitor96> just noticed my time on this page is one hour slow. is that true for everybody?
08:20:41 <ynpvisitor108> Some people have changed to MDT some have not
08:20:48 <Half&Hafnium> No - you might need to refresh your browser cache
08:21:51 <ynpvisitor96> refresh your browser cache---- how do I do this?
08:22:11 <Katie> Try holding down the shift key and refreshing the page.
08:23:02 <ynpvisitor108> LC ie
08:23:05 <ynpvisitor96> thanks, that was easy enough and it worked.
08:23:19 <Half&Hafnium> :thumbsup:
08:23:56 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> Hey Jimbo, I found you a shower curtain:
08:25:26 <Kat> Thats funny Kevin!!
08:25:50 <Half&Hafnium> Cool, it'll go with my tie.
08:25:56 <Katie> I'm going to guess before I click - periodic table of elements?
08:26:13 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> You got it.
08:26:15 <Half&Hafnium> Yup
08:26:18 <Kat> Ding Ding Ding you win Katie!
08:26:54 <Kat> Thanks Katie my time now says 1026 MDT
08:27:14 <Katie> Good news!
08:27:57 <Kat> That is a big help especially since I live in the east!
08:28:21 <Eric> Glad everyone is finally catching up to MDT :-D
08:28:27 <Mike J> What I'd like to see is a list of what can occasionally be found in the makeup of a table. It would be the periodic elements of tables
08:29:06 <Eric> Legs, top, extension pieces?
08:29:41 <Eric> daisy
08:29:44 <ynpvisitor108> Daisy
08:29:55 <Kat> :daisy:
08:30:47 <LindaGP> Ah water
08:31:18 <Half&Hafnium> Got it, Mike J., but wouldn't you want the recurring pieces, so it's periodic?
08:31:39 <Kat> Nice view
08:32:43 <LindaGP> I like this down basin view
08:32:46 <Mike J> Your right. Occasional is not periodic. The grammar geek in me salutes you.
08:34:19 <Eric> That is a tall narrow column in the grotto area
08:34:39 <Katie> The narrowness was quite striking
08:35:20 <Eric> I wonder if it could be a hot period
08:35:23 <Eric> from giant
08:35:39 <Katie> Hmmm.... good thought
08:35:56 <Eric> Guess if it stops in about 5 minutes, we will know :-D
08:37:08 <LindaGP> O just checking for indy
08:38:04 <Katie> I have a gut feeling we aren't going to have an indicator this time. I have no logic to go with that gut feeling.
08:38:57 <LindaGP> OF course old F and grand about the same time
08:39:37 <LindaGP> That does look more specific than grotto
08:39:46 <Half&Hafnium> I resemble that remark (grammar geek)
08:39:54 <ynpvisitor34> how do I turn javascript on or off?
08:40:20 <Half&Hafnium> That sure does have the look of a Giant Hot Period on a cold day about it
08:40:56 <Katie> Which browser, 34?
08:41:03 <Eric> we are about 6 minutes in, so a few minutes more and we should be able to reasonably guess
08:41:15 <ynpvisitor34> firefox Katie
08:41:33 <LindaGP> Eric, ok
08:41:53 <ynpvisitor34> got locked out of gmail now it won't let me in til I turn java on (I guess)
08:42:13 <Half&Hafnium> sitting on 5 days for Giant
08:42:26 <Eric> reasonable timing for a hot period
08:43:11 <Half&Hafnium> I sense cooling
08:43:44 <Half&Hafnium> or not
08:43:51 <Katie> Open the Firefox browser or restart it, if it is already running. From the Firefox menu, select Tools, then click the Add-ons option. In the Add-ons Manager window, select Plugins. Click Java (TM) Platform plugin (Windows) or Java Applet Plug-in (Mac OS X) to select it.
08:44:42 <Katie> But does gmail want it on - or off?
08:44:59 <Eric> I think they mean javascript Katie
08:45:09 <Eric> gmail does not use java
08:46:09 <Eric> Non-tech people always get confused by the java/javascript distinction :-D
08:46:34 <LindaGP> I just realized the chat on my phone didn't update time but my tablet dis
08:46:40 <Mike J> have a good weekend all
08:46:43 <ynpvisitor100> 1st, are you sure it is google that is giving you the message? Second, being locked out of the spam king is a good thing.
08:46:53 <LindaGP> *did
08:47:21 <ynpvisitor34> it is telling me that it does - The browser you're using doesn't support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off. To keep your Google Account secure, try signing in on a browser that has JavaScript turned on.
08:47:39 <LindaGP> Eric, steam almost gone,, so does that mean a hot period?
08:48:57 <Half&Hafnium> Speaking as an inexpert, 34, I think so, because the big steam of a Giant eruption didn't follow it.
08:49:15 <Eric> I would assume that was a hot period
08:49:24 <Eric> Grotto wouldn't be that short
08:49:25 <LindaGP> Nice
08:49:43 <LindaGP> March 17 is the prediction for next giant
08:50:48 <Katie> That's a very "guesstimate" prediction. Giant isn't genuinely predictable. Or, to put it another way, the eruption window is days, not hours.
08:50:53 <LindaGP> LC ie
08:51:55 <Eric> I was going to say...I would expect diant 3/17-3/19 someplace
08:52:07 <Eric> + or - a couple days :-P
08:52:28 <Eric> LC
08:54:14 <Half&Hafnium> Eric, were you also going to say 'Giant'? :lol:
08:56:26 <Katie> Tough crowd. ';)
08:57:33 <Half&Hafnium> Typo humor is an acquired waste
08:58:16 <Eric> Solid Joke :-P
08:58:46 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> He is taking over for Dave while he is gone.
08:58:53 <LindaGP> Realize it's a guesstimate on giant
08:59:07 <Katie> Usurper
08:59:18 <Eric> haha
09:00:07 <LindaGP> Kevin was lurking.
09:05:19 <LindaGP> Bee is really steaming
09:08:05 <Half&Hafnium> At least he's not a Kingslayer - is it April yet?
09:08:56 <Katie> Only mad kings, I'm sure.
09:10:54 <Katie> Are we getting another Giant hot period starting?
09:11:02 <Katie> (presumed)
09:12:14 <Katie> It would be a good day for a Giant. Last winter eruption for visitors... and blue sky
09:12:41 <LindaGP> It sure would
09:13:25 <LindaGP> Not so sure there is another one though
09:13:55 <Katie> Doesn't look like it. Wishful thinking.
09:14:18 <LindaGP> šŸ˜Š
09:15:01 <LindaGP> It's a race who goes first OF, grand or bee
09:17:34 <LindaGP> OF ie
09:17:40 <LindaGP> No
09:17:42 <Half&Hafnium> Alright, BH overtime on my prediction
09:17:50 <LindaGP> LC ie
09:18:01 <Half&Hafnium> dang I was just typing that
09:18:37 <Katie> LindaGP made me check if I was delayed. ;)
09:18:55 <Eric> Grand before BH?
09:19:40 <LindaGP> OF ie
09:21:18 <LindaGP> Katie, sorry auto correct keeps putting in OF instead of LC
09:22:02 <LindaGP> That's a big OF
09:29:00 <LindaGP> Grand
09:30:04 <Half&Hafnium> Fantastic start
09:30:20 <LindaGP> .
09:30:47 <LindaGP> Pretty explosive
09:36:32 <Half&Hafnium> time check
09:36:46 <LindaGP> 7 min
09:36:58 <Half&Hafnium> yeah, I was a little early
09:37:08 <Casey2> 8m
09:38:39 <Eric> doesn't look like it wants to pause
09:38:49 <Half&Hafnium> 0=
09:38:59 <Casey> 10m
09:40:11 <LindaGP> Pause
09:40:28 <Casey> I suspect a 5+ hour pause
09:40:30 <Eric> Might be the long 5-6h pause :-(
09:40:33 <Eric> :-D
09:40:46 <Casey> Well said, Eric
09:40:53 <Eric> You too!
09:41:03 <LindaGP> Don't you hate those lol
09:41:40 <Eric> Time for some BH action
09:42:02 <ynpvisitor19> but I just got here
09:42:03 <Eric> Lion too
09:42:06 <ynpvisitor19> missed Grand
09:44:11 <Kitt> busy bubbler
09:52:11 <LindaGP> Clearly bee is messing with us.
09:52:59 <Half&Hafnium> Spring break
10:05:32 <LindaGP> LC ie
10:42:12 <LindaGP> Zzzzzzzzzz
10:50:45 <Kat> Really Linda - what happened to Bee?
10:51:20 <Eric> Well, lunch time for it should go while I am gone.
10:51:38 <ynpvisitor4> Last day for humans!
10:52:02 <LindaGP> I'm working on it. Lol
10:52:22 <ynpvisitor4> And for VEC until April 19
10:52:34 <LindaGP> OF and daisy due
10:52:53 <Eric> everything but grand due!
10:53:07 <Eric> including BH & Lion
10:53:45 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> And Giantess
10:54:07 <Eric> That is overdue Kevin!
10:54:14 <Eric> Big fines!
10:54:34 <Katie> I'm with Kevin.
10:54:41 <Sam> And Riverside too
10:54:50 <LindaGP> Riverside now
10:55:00 <Sam> HAHA
10:56:12 <LindaGP> OF ie
10:56:13 <Casey> OF
10:56:22 <Casey> You got the start Linda
10:57:15 <LindaGP> Casey, OF riverside or OF
10:57:52 <Casey> OF
10:58:01 <Sam> I got it
10:58:28 <LindaGP> ok slow today. šŸ˜Š good memory
10:59:14 <LindaGP> Nice OF
10:59:30 <Sam> Yes it is. Long too
11:09:33 <Half&Hafnium> BH can't get much hotter, can it?
11:10:17 <LindaGP> Daisy
11:11:07 <LindaGP> I know its got to go soon
11:11:49 <Half&Hafnium> Daisy looks pretty strong
11:12:40 <LindaGP> Especially since eric went to lunch
11:13:33 <LindaGP> Doggie
11:14:19 <LindaGP> Next up geyser hill
11:15:53 <LindaGP> The other night we were watching bee and it looked just like this and Indy popped, it was amazing
11:16:32 <ynpvisitor25> and then you can watch it like this for hours...with it just like this
11:16:40 <Kat> Just added days to my trip in May! Calling the reservation folks works out so much better!
11:17:19 <LindaGP> Kat, That's great, envious, even though I'm going to glacier.
11:17:45 <LindaGP> Kat, did you turn bee off at end of your shift?
11:17:59 <ynpvisitor25> I have not seen one splash from Bee
11:18:22 <LindaGP> A lot of bubbler action
11:19:07 <ynpvisitor25> Linda, you are not going to Glacier in May are you?
11:19:11 <LindaGP> About 20 hours since last bee
11:19:54 <LindaGP> No end of june
11:22:30 <ynpvisitor94> I like watching bes in the spring.
11:22:40 <ynpvisitor94> or shoudl it be b's
11:23:03 <ynpvisitor94> North google looks hot
11:23:54 <Half&Hafnium> You have got to fix that keyboard
11:24:42 <LindaGP> Bee is being difficult
11:25:07 <LindaGP> LC ie
11:25:07 <ynpvisitor25> you guys are funny, it's just being Bee
11:25:35 <LindaGP> I know, difficult lol
11:25:40 <ynpvisitor94> Does ng do minors with no visible water?
11:26:08 <LindaGP> Inthink so but I'm no expert
11:26:12 <ynpvisitor94> Or is that steem from somethign else?
11:26:27 <ynpvisitor94> Kind of looks too far left.
11:26:42 <LindaGP> I think goggle spring is to the right of lion aalso
11:27:03 <LindaGP> Maybe wrong name
11:27:40 <ynpvisitor25> must be wrong as it is not blue
11:27:47 <ynpvisitor94> I seem to recall ng is half way between the edge of the dark patch and the sign?
11:28:10 <ynpvisitor94> I do not think springs are colored, just geysers
11:28:38 <ynpvisitor25> indigo spring is
11:28:40 <LindaGP> Ah that explains it.
11:29:03 <LindaGP> NG is closer to that white sign on right
11:29:06 <ynpvisitor25> ear spring
11:29:11 <ynpvisitor25> springs are blue too
11:29:15 <ynpvisitor94> butterfly
11:29:21 <ynpvisitor94> butterfly spring
11:30:11 <ynpvisitor25> BH looks way too quiet
11:30:26 <ynpvisitor94> Kevin should be blue, and link to Aurum!
11:30:31 <LindaGP> Goggles spring
11:30:37 <LindaGP> There we go
11:31:18 <ynpvisitor25> you can click on north goggle and see it's position in comparison to Lion
11:33:16 <LindaGP> omg ever clock I look at has a different time. Haven't changes the living room clock yet.
11:33:37 <ynpvisitor94> It will be correct in months
11:33:59 <ynpvisitor94> And you will be early if you look at it last
11:34:40 <ynpvisitor94> Lion looks happy
11:35:08 <LindaGP> My tablet is correct my phone isn't for chat and then the hiuse. Yikes!
11:35:31 <LindaGP> Not to mention the tnormal time difference. Lol
11:36:36 <ynpvisitor94> I do not worry about clocks much, most of the time I just go where my wife says when she says so.
11:37:32 <LindaGP> That's the best way šŸ˜Š
11:37:51 <Kat> Linda HeHeHe
11:39:47 <ynpvisitor94> Well based on the people walking, that could maybe have been steam from ng
11:39:57 <LindaGP> Sorry about the zigzag
11:40:27 <ynpvisitor94> It is Friday, I am used to looking at trees and cabins.
11:40:41 <LindaGP> Tobthinknthey may be by GOGGLES spring
11:41:01 <LindaGP> *They
11:41:14 <LindaGP> Can't type
11:41:29 <ynpvisitor94> We can agree it is steam!
11:42:14 <LindaGP> Yes we can
11:42:24 <ynpvisitor94> Nice burp, but I think I see bubbler steam
11:42:42 <ynpvisitor94> Or is that too far left?
11:43:09 <ynpvisitor94> Well, time to burn something for lunch
11:43:39 <ynpvisitor94> beep extra loud if there is something to see.
11:47:53 <LindaGP> Bee splash
11:50:35 <LindaGP> Bison
11:50:57 <ynpvisitor94> Those do not look like bee's. where they the ones splashing?
11:51:31 <ynpvisitor94> Old dried out grass must taste good after all the snow they have been eating?
11:51:40 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> These splat not splash
11:52:01 <CraigC> I got deadended on my bike ride today and had to backtrack because of a herd of bison
11:52:23 <LindaGP> They do rule!
11:53:01 <LindaGP> Youngin
11:53:12 <ynpvisitor94> Need one of these to clear the way. data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQAAAQABAAD/2wBDAAoHBwgHBgoICAgLCgoLDhgQDg0NDh0VFhEYIx8lJCIfIiEmKzcvJik0KSEiMEExNDk7Pj4+JS5ESUM8SDc9Pjv/2wBDAQoLCw4NDhwQEBw7KCIoOzs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozs7Ozv/wAARCADmASwDASIAAhEBAxEB/8QAHwAAAQUBAQEBAQEAAAAAAAAAAAECAwQFBgcICQoL/8QAtRAAAgEDAwIEAwUFBAQAAAF9AQIDAAQRBRIhMUEGE1FhByJxFDKBkaEI
11:54:10 <CraigC> one of WHAT??? LOL
11:55:14 <LindaGP> Love the young bison
11:56:42 <ynpvisitor94> try this one.
11:57:34 <LindaGP> You'd either clear it or get strampled
11:59:46 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> Mount this on your bike:
12:00:39 <ynpvisitor94> They are prey animals, you just need to look like a predator.
12:01:09 <CraigC> LOL
12:01:46 <ynpvisitor94> Maybe like this?
12:02:52 <CraigC> predator LOL
12:04:22 <Half&Hafnium> Time to fool BH
12:06:03 <ynpvisitor25> Bison are not prey animals
12:07:01 <ynpvisitor25> Craig where were you that you encountered a herd of bison?
12:08:15 <ynpvisitor94> They aren't?
12:08:51 <CraigC> ynpvisitor25, Antelope Island in Utah
12:09:15 <ynpvisitor25> do they have a managed herd there?
12:09:21 <ynpvisitor25> 94, they are grazers
12:09:23 <CraigC> yeah
12:09:32 <ynpvisitor25> cool, I did not know that
12:09:43 <ynpvisitor25> is it for food production?
12:09:59 <CraigC> ynpvisitor25, nope, for a State Park
12:11:00 <ynpvisitor25> do you know how big the herd is?
12:11:10 <CraigC> and they have 'antelope' there, too, here is one I snapped;
12:11:30 <ynpvisitor25> nice, a pronghorn
12:11:52 <CraigC> here's the group of bison that halted me;
12:11:55 <ynpvisitor25> is it a true island?
12:12:10 <CraigC> yes, with a causeway to get there
12:12:40 <LindaGP> Yeah they seem to like to chase moving objects
12:13:02 <ynpvisitor25> only when provoked
12:13:06 <CraigC> the trails mostly dry out there sooner than along our mtns, so people ride there this time of year
12:13:21 <ynpvisitor25> nice to have a spring place to ride
12:13:37 <CraigC> otherwise, we drive down to Moab or St George
12:14:09 <ynpvisitor94> Drive, why not ride?
12:14:39 <CraigC> from wiki "The Antelope Island bison herd currently numbers between 550 and 700 individuals. "
12:15:11 <LindaGP> LC ie
12:15:27 <ynpvisitor25> thanks. The Yellowstone herd is going to be culled soon
12:16:57 <Half&Hafnium> I still remember my first bison burger in Custer State Park
12:17:55 <LindaGP> Mine was at roosevelt lodge
12:18:05 <ynpvisitor25> a few people around for this OF, that should be it for tourists
12:18:20 <LindaGP> Although I did have bison pot roast at the inn
12:19:33 <LindaGP> Scant believe winter is almost over
12:19:50 <LindaGP> *cant
12:20:17 <ynpvisitor94> Anyone remember the big sell on beefalo? Was supposed to provide better beef.
12:22:37 <Kat> Kinda, are u still on?
12:22:53 <ynpvisitor94> Around here you can buy bison. Either cut and wrapped, or on the hoof so they can bust your fences.
12:23:14 <Casey> Still no beehive? Who am I supposed to blame?
12:23:23 <Kat> Should say Linda...Are you operating?
12:23:24 <ynpvisitor94> dave
12:23:51 <LindaGP> Yea
12:24:24 <Kat> OK...let me know if you turn it over.
12:24:25 <LindaGP> Waiting for OF
12:24:43 <LindaGP> I think Kat turned bee off šŸ˜‰
12:24:54 <Kat> HeHeHe
12:26:10 <Kat> See Dave's not here so its my fault! Can't we blame him? LOL
12:27:17 <ynpvisitor94> We could blame Graham.
12:27:56 <Casey> Geysers erupt when Dave is not around. It doesn't make since to blame him if he's not here. We should encourage him to stay away.
12:28:35 <Kat> Oh, Got that all wrong!:)
12:28:52 <Katie> But we still blame Dave, because that's just what we do.
12:29:12 <Kat> HAHa
12:29:19 <Casey> Ok. I can accept that. It's always Dave's fault whether he is here or not?
12:29:33 <Kat> Why not!
12:30:08 <Casey> As long as you don't blame me I'll fall into line
12:30:38 <Kat> That was easy Casey.
12:31:43 <Casey> Somebody call the VEC and tell them about the cone walkers
12:31:52 <CraigC> it's cause we are watching bison, so we get herd mentality
12:32:03 <LindaGP> That bison is in for a surprise
12:32:32 <Kat> Heading to the spa or not!
12:32:45 <Casey> He got the message
12:32:51 <Kat> Not!
12:32:52 <LindaGP> OF ie
12:33:03 <Casey> Just big preplay
12:33:10 <LindaGP> Darn Casey
12:33:21 <Casey> No. Darn Dave
12:33:26 <LindaGP> I finger got twitchy lol
12:33:39 <Kat> :)
12:33:58 <Eric> With all this pinging, I thought we had BHI :-P
12:34:12 <Kat> Just chatter
12:34:17 <LindaGP> Haha
12:34:18 <Casey> We just made some executive decisions.
12:34:36 <Kat> Right executive
12:35:06 <Eric> So you are all going to play golf?
12:35:19 <Kat> :lol:
12:36:21 <CraigC> me golf? hahahahahahahaha
12:37:14 <Casey> I've been told I have a good swing... until I actually make contact with the ball
12:37:19 <CraigC> I talk too much crap to all my golfer friends, I would never hear the end of it if they caught me golfing
12:37:47 <Eric> Ohh, I thought you were making executive decisions.
12:37:49 <Kat> I'm scary out there!
12:37:59 <Eric> Like which club to use.
12:38:12 <CraigC> the mace?
12:38:20 <Casey> At my favorite course I only use a putter.
12:38:22 <CraigC> OF
12:38:25 <Eric> OF
12:38:25 <LindaGP> OF ie
12:38:49 <LindaGP> Nice
12:38:53 <Kat> Yes Linda
12:39:16 <LindaGP> I Love the big steam curtain
12:39:31 <CraigC> I was on our H.S. golf team, and I worked at a GC for a couple of years back then, but after picking up fly fishing, and mtn biking and skiing, I would never waste my time on a course again
12:39:43 <ynpvisitor94> The only redeeming quality for golf balls is they make good targets, and parts for that yard game with the plastic pipes.
12:40:20 <Eric> ladder ball
12:40:29 <ynpvisitor94> Or ammo for a mini potato gun.
12:40:36 <CraigC> LOL
12:40:47 <Eric> Nice static shot:
12:41:05 <Eric> With the bison in the front
12:41:06 <CraigC> nice
12:41:09 <LindaGP> That is nice
12:41:47 <ynpvisitor94> Surprised caulifornia has not declared them as a hazardous material and put a pro 35 warning on them.
12:42:02 <ynpvisitor94> prop 35
12:42:18 <CraigC> Eric, how does a watch know when I am biking?
12:42:38 <Eric> Your speed?
12:43:15 <Eric> raised heart rate combined with speed...I assume most people don't get 15+ mph with elevated heart rate when not biking.
12:43:43 <CraigC> makes sense
12:43:57 <Eric> Satellite tracking?
12:44:18 <Eric> All just guesses :-D
12:44:31 <CraigC> better than anything I could imagine
12:45:31 <CraigC> I use an app on my phone for accurate stats, and I manually select the mtn biking
12:50:14 <ynpvisitor94> Maxfli U/6 Golf Balls do cause cancer in caulifornia. Think they are safer if you use sun screen?
12:50:50 <Casey> That's why I never play golf in California
12:51:47 <ynpvisitor94> Nope, sunscreen causes cancer in caulifornai also.
12:52:05 <ynpvisitor94> One more reason to stay away from the place.
12:53:22 <ynpvisitor12> how is Castle area looking?
12:53:41 <ynpvisitor94> Neglected
12:54:15 <ynpvisitor12> tks
12:54:29 <LindaGP> Nothing happening there
12:54:33 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> My model railroad trains cause cancer in california
12:54:47 <ynpvisitor12> at bee neither :)
12:55:12 <LindaGP> How true
12:56:17 <LindaGP> Can't see Aurum either
12:57:28 <Kat> Well I got up and ran the vacuum hoping that would get things going!
12:58:04 <ynpvisitor94> Go lion, roar, roar, roar.
12:58:09 <ynpvisitor94> SOrrry just chearing
12:58:39 <LindaGP> Thanks Kat
12:58:56 <ynpvisitor94> Isnt today the last do to visit?
12:59:02 <ynpvisitor94> day
12:59:13 <LindaGP> Yea
12:59:33 <LindaGP> I guess everyone is gone home
12:59:33 <ynpvisitor94> Bummer if you got left behind.
12:59:56 <ynpvisitor25> how would you get left behind 94?
12:59:58 <CraigC> not if you have enough food
13:00:55 <ynpvisitor94> Guide can not count?
13:01:05 <ynpvisitor25> VEC is open until 5, I am sure they would take you in.
13:01:19 <ynpvisitor25> guides are paid to count
13:01:41 <CraigC> like the scuba divers that were left at sea
13:01:53 <Casey> Have we even seen a splash from BH yet?
13:02:08 <ynpvisitor25> not even one Craig
13:02:08 <LindaGP> One splash a while ago
13:11:11 <LindaGP> C'mon north goggle
13:12:34 <ynpvisitor5> Doubt we're gonna get North Goggle without a Lion series.
13:13:24 <LindaGP> ā˜¹
13:14:00 <ynpvisitor5> It was doing independent eruptions following the Geyser Hill Anomaly. But I think that's tapered off.
13:16:16 <ynpvisitor94>
13:16:58 <CraigC> great classic
13:17:14 <ynpvisitor5> Negative or just observational?
13:17:45 <CraigC> yes?
13:20:42 <ynpvisitor94> Go plume
13:21:00 <ynpvisitor5> Ha.
13:22:15 <ynpvisitor5> Go Sawmill.
13:22:52 <ynpvisitor94> Maybe plume will go pork chop on us?
13:24:19 <ynpvisitor5> Specutively? Anythings possible. Scientifically? I doubt it. Geyser Hill doesn't have the type of geology for large explosions I don't think.
13:24:26 <LindaGP> Camera is all dirty again
13:24:37 <ynpvisitor12> looks like the night people will get Bee
13:25:04 <LindaGP> It's looking that way
13:25:14 <ynpvisitor94> Well maybe it will go butterfly on us?
13:25:14 <Betty> hi all
13:25:26 <ynpvisitor94> Or the boardwalk killer?
13:26:00 <LindaGP> Hi betry
13:26:09 <LindaGP> Or betty
13:26:14 <Betty> hi Linda
13:26:36 <ynpvisitor5> Haha. I'd like Ear Spring to go Butterfly again.
13:26:49 <LindaGP> Talk to bee betty, it won't go
13:27:06 <CraigC> hi Betty
13:27:34 <Betty> hi again CraigC
13:27:58 <ynpvisitor94> Almost a splash
13:28:03 <Half&Hafnium> That looked promising
13:28:26 <LindaGP> I know thats what i thought lol
13:29:05 <Half&Hafnium> I'd like to toss a chip onto the "No Indy" square right now
13:29:09 <Betty> bee seems to be like a teenager, it does not hear what mom says
13:30:24 <LindaGP> Theres no other show either
13:31:01 <Betty> GƤnseblĆ¼mchen is due
13:31:09 <ynpvisitor12> the castle and daisy show is about to begin
13:31:42 <Betty> oh, forgot SchloƟ
13:32:19 <LindaGP> I thought for sure
13:32:38 <ynpvisitor94> Try this.
13:33:08 <ynpvisitor12> Gary will get bee
13:34:57 <LindaGP> I know, but i want bee
13:35:52 <ynpvisitor5> Patience is key with geyser gazing. lol.
13:36:34 <Betty> how about Lion?
13:37:08 <LindaGP> Lion
13:37:20 <Eric> woot ini
13:37:29 <LindaGP> Finally
13:37:37 <ynpvisitor5> Love initials.
13:37:39 <Betty> lol
13:37:42 <ynpvisitor5> Hoping to measure one this summer.
13:37:47 <Betty> :-)
13:38:06 <Betty> Lion hears about what mom says :-)
13:38:48 <ynpvisitor3> I heard about an app like a clinometer, what are you going to use ynpvisitor5,?
13:38:49 <Eric> Lion has been ready all afternoon! Glad to see it roar.
13:39:19 <Betty> hi Eric
13:39:26 <Eric> Hi Betty
13:39:43 <LindaGP> Ok ill take lion šŸ˜Š
13:39:45 <ynpvisitor94> We can google now
13:39:52 <ynpvisitor5> ynpvisitor3 I'm going to probably buy an actual professional clinometer.
13:40:15 <ynpvisitor5> I've been creating baselines in Google Earth and making an excel spreadsheet where I can just plug in angle values and it will spit out a height.
13:41:30 <Kat> :)
13:41:59 <LindaGP> Kat, I'm settling for a lion ini
13:42:08 <Eric> 5 must == Micah :-P
13:42:14 <Kat> Never settle haha
13:42:24 <Betty> thought that too, Eric :-D
13:42:30 <Eric> I suspected earlier....
13:42:39 <ynpvisitor94> Laser tape measure, clinometer, and Kevin with his slide rule would work.
13:42:53 <Eric> Really tall pvc pipe!
13:43:11 <Eric> With cameras every 5ft
13:44:44 <LindaGP> Gary has cam
13:45:33 <ynpvisitor94> Spekking of lasers, anyone get one of the new milled crowns? I was in and out with a new tooth in an hour this week. No goo or return trips.
13:45:50 <LindaGP> Lol now he can spend his time zooming
13:46:02 <ynpvisitor3> ynpvisitor5, did you see that app this summer? someone had it at Steamboat
13:46:02 <Kat> :)
13:46:05 <ynpvisitor94> splasy splashy
13:46:29 <Betty> I think it is ready
13:47:07 <ynpvisitor94> Beginning to look like a kid waiting in line that has had too many pops.
13:48:09 <ynpvisitor5> ynpvisitor3 I think I heard about the App but I'd prefer to just go straight clinometer rather than try to eyeball it with my smartphone. And this is coming from someone with 5 geology apps on his phone already.
13:48:25 <Betty> indy
13:48:41 <ynpvisitor94> Need to write the how hi is that geyser app.
13:48:57 <ynpvisitor5> The Sput-O-Meter
13:49:01 <ynpvisitor3> .33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333
13:49:08 <ynpvisitor3> yay Betty
13:49:10 <Betty> .
13:49:10 <Betty> .
13:49:11 <Betty> .
13:49:13 <Betty> .
13:49:18 <ynpvisitor12> yes
13:49:32 <ynpvisitor3> cat- sorry
13:49:46 <ynpvisitor12> daisy
13:49:48 <Eric> woot
13:49:49 <ynpvisitor94> She can watch now instead of work
13:50:01 <Betty> your cat called indy? cool
13:50:52 <Half&Hafnium> Daisy too
13:51:10 <Half&Hafnium> Well, I lost that "No Indy
13:51:13 <Half&Hafnium> bet
13:51:17 <Eric> Daisy is like Rodney Dangerfield
13:51:25 <ynpvisitor3> cat was announcing my # :D
13:51:35 <Half&Hafnium> That's the problem with being predictable, Eric.
13:51:46 <LindaGt> Finally
13:51:51 <Half&Hafnium> People start thinking you aren't special!
13:52:02 <Eric> So true....
13:52:17 <Eric> Bank?
13:52:23 <Katie> Cat is going to have a lot of explaining to do as everyone logs on and wonders why we are watching Daisy when Beehive's Indicator is erupting. ;)
13:52:41 <Betty> yes Eric
13:53:04 <KittyM*> LOL, count me in on wondering LOL
13:53:17 <LindaGt> I'm confused was it indy?
13:53:24 <Betty> yes
13:53:24 <Eric> Yes
13:53:25 <ynpvisitor47> yup, wondering
13:53:27 <ynpvisitor12> yes
13:53:27 <ynpvisitor94> yes, and then daisy
13:53:36 <LindaGt> Ok
13:53:37 <Eric> Can we swing back now?
13:53:42 <Eric> pleeeeease
13:54:01 <LindaGt> I dont think hes on chat
13:54:10 <ynpvisitor25> what is up with that?
13:54:11 <CraigC> is it Gary?
13:54:14 <Eric> Hiya Lori
13:54:22 <LindaGt> Yes

13:54:24 <CraigC> hey Lori
13:54:27 <Indigo Lori> Hi Eric
13:54:33 <Indigo Lori> Hi Craig
13:54:49 <ynpvisitor25> I messaged him, yet he is not currently on FB
13:54:58 <ynpvisitor25> hopefully he got it
13:55:00 <ynpvisitor25> looks like
13:55:06 <Eric> There we go....LC too
13:55:06 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
13:55:34 <Eric> For everyone who threw their beans in the No-indy pot....No soup for you!
13:56:08 <Katie> I din't want soup anyway! *sticks tongue out*
13:56:26 <Eric> :-D
13:57:02 <Eric> I planted my beans, I wanna see a Giant!
13:57:17 <ynpvisitor94> May those that put beans in the pot, run out of beano.
13:57:24 <Casey2> No soup until you eat your pot of beans?
13:57:36 <Betty> nice "Jack!"
13:57:39 <Indigo Lori> I put my beans in the burrito I just ate,
13:57:46 <Eric> Thanks...had to trade my cow though
13:57:51 <Indigo Lori> haha 94
13:58:13 <Eric> If you soak your beans, you don't need beano.
13:58:39 <ynpvisitor25> nice long indy
13:58:50 <Casey2> Instead of soup or beans I'm just going to eat muffin tops.
13:59:46 <ynpvisitor25> lift off
13:59:46 <Kitt> Climb Bee
13:59:46 <Casey2> BH
13:59:49 <Kitt> oh yes
13:59:52 <Kitt> boom
14:00:17 <LindaGt> Here's beehive
14:00:28 <Kat> Yeah!!
14:00:41 <LindaGt> Beautiful
14:00:56 <KittyM*> yay!
14:00:56 <Eric> And nobody out on the BW for the last bee of the season :-(
14:00:59 <Katie> It's been a long wait, today, but beautiful now!
14:01:02 <ynpvisitor25> surging Bee today
14:01:04 <Betty> nice daylight sunlight BH
14:01:44 <Kat> Long wait worth very minute!
14:01:50 <Indigo Lori> classic bee with great wind direction
14:02:16 <Half&Hafnium> Can I just say :thumbsup::thumbsup:
14:02:46 <Eric> Yep, great curtain
14:03:09 <Indigo Lori> would love to be on that bw getting a bee shower
14:03:30 <CraigC> brrrrrrr
14:03:47 <Indigo Lori> it's pretty warm in west today...melting
14:03:52 <Eric> Hmmm, I think 32 degrees is a little too cold for me. But I would stand over near depression and watch with glee :-D
14:04:00 <Indigo Lori> snow is melting, not me
14:04:03 <Kitt> so kind of bee to erupt before the next Old Faithful
14:04:29 <Kitt> I would like to see Lori after Beehive quits
14:04:44 <Indigo Lori> haha :p
14:04:48 <Indigo Lori> beeciciles
14:04:53 <Kitt> I bet you would find 32 degrees extremely cold, especially with a breeze
14:05:08 <Kitt> Have a good day
14:05:13 <Eric> Bye Kitt
14:05:18 <Indigo Lori> bye kitt

14:26:28 <ynpvisitor12> cam just barely on it
14:27:06 <Indigo Lori> pan <<<<< ?
14:29:38 <ynpvisitor12> What am i missing? seems people logging on as indigo something lately
14:30:42 <Indigo Lori> My mission this summer is to catch Indigo Spring erupting.
14:31:19 <ynpvisitor12> ah! explains a lot, tks
14:31:47 <Indigo Lori> yw
14:32:45 <Indigo Lori> My alias is Indigo Spring at work (bos)
14:42:29 <Indigo Lori> <<< to Castle ? Just a smidge?
14:44:33 <CraigC> I don't think the camop is in the chat
14:45:20 <Kat> Generally not
14:45:22 <Indigo Lori> :(
14:50:31 <Kevin Lā„¢šŸŒµ> Lion
15:29:24 <Casey> Nobody posted Lion. 1650 on the dot or ie?
15:49:00 <Sam> Cam down?
15:50:35 <Casey> Yes
15:51:02 <Sam> I think OF was ie at 17:48
15:52:41 <ynpvisitor12> yes of on static
16:02:25 <ynpvisitor12> cam comming back
16:17:14 <ynpvisitor58> was cam down for Grand?
16:17:43 <Casey> I don't know if Grand has erupted or not
16:17:48 <ynpvisitor12> think so
16:19:00 <ynpvisitor12> grand was only 6h 49 min ago so still may happen
16:19:41 <Casey> Cam was only down for ~14 minutes. Pretty small window for us to miss an entire Grand eruption, but possible.
16:22:10 <ynpvisitor58> looks post eruptive over there, thought that was Turban and Vent I've been watching.
16:22:50 <ynpvisitor58> It'd be great if it hasn't gone yet
16:24:03 <ynpvisitor58> what do you think the steam is from?
16:24:25 <Casey> Yeah. I agree it looks post-eruptive. I was hoping it was just steam from Turban, but if I just showed up I'd definitely think post-eruptive.
16:24:26 <ynpvisitor12> turban
16:26:18 <ynpvisitor58> it's been too consistent to just be Turban in my opinion.
16:26:46 <ynpvisitor58> that would be crazy if the cam went down for only 14 minutes and missed all of Grand
16:30:16 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy
16:30:17 <ynpvisitor12> daisy
16:34:29 <ynpvisitor12> cam went down at 1729 and came back up at 1802 so..Grand and Lion probably erupted in that time span
16:48:14 <Casey> Wow. I must have been really oblivious and didn't notice it stopped. Granted, I am multitasking right now.
16:53:21 <ynpvisitor12> lion
17:04:30 <ynpvisitor12> riverside
17:28:50 <ynpvisitor108> OF ie
18:01:53 <ynpvisitor108> Lion
18:02:13 <ynpvisitor108> Nope
18:21:21 <ynpvisitor58> Is Grand ie or post eruptive?
18:22:02 <ynpvisitor58> no Grand listed on gt
18:22:28 <ynpvisitor108> Says last one was 8hrs sgo
18:23:26 <ynpvisitor108> Cam was down so maybe it got missed
