02:49:14 <ynpvisitor90> OF
04:17:27 <Sam> Castle sure is steamy
05:16:29 <BWaggs> Morning
05:17:54 <CraigC> hey BW
05:18:01 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:18:45 <KittyM*> Ohh, pretty sunrise colors!
05:19:52 <CraigC> hey Kitty
05:20:22 <KittyM*> Hey, good morning!
05:21:03 <ynpvisitor77> lc ie
05:26:46 <CraigC> hey Bill
05:26:54 <Bill> Good morning!
05:37:03 <Dave from B™> Good morning?
05:37:33 <ynpvisitor113> are you home Dave
05:37:48 <CraigC> Good morning, Dave from B, welcome to geyertimes chat, if you have any questions, feel free to ask, we are a friendly and helpful people.
05:37:50 <Dave from B™> Yes, but my body is still on Hawaii time
05:38:12 <Dave from B™> I've heard a lot of good things about this room
05:38:22 <CraigC> have you been here before, dave?
05:39:02 <Dave from B™> I vaguely remember being here
05:39:06 <CraigC> LOL
05:39:20 <CraigC> and you seem vaguely familiar.... did we like you?
05:39:53 <Dave from B™> Depends on who you ask
05:40:57 <CraigC> glad you are back :)
05:46:13 <ynpvisitor77> can you keep grand in view also
05:52:33 <ynpvisitor113> OF
05:52:36 <ynpvisitor77> of 0752
05:52:39 <Dave from B™> No Giant recently?
05:52:59 <ynpvisitor77> no it waited for you
05:53:05 <CraigC> if so, no one caught it
05:53:15 <ynpvisitor106> Nice lighting
05:53:46 <Dave from B™> Does anyone know any gazers who will be at YNP for opening Weekend?
05:55:20 <CraigC> I don't. I am going the 13th, and again for Memorial
05:56:21 <Dave from B™> May 13th?
05:57:49 <CraigC> yep
05:58:14 <Dave from B™> Camping?
05:58:24 <CraigC> taking my mom, so not sure how much we'll be in the basins. might be doing more wildlife searching
05:58:34 <CraigC> hotel in west yellowstone
05:59:01 <Dave from B™> Nice. Your mom will like that
06:00:19 <Dave from B™> I hear there is a grizzly with 6 cubs hanging around at the norris parking lot. You might want to park there all week:)
06:01:24 <CraigC> yeah, she's handled my dad's death pretty well, I've been checking on her a lot, and took her out birding the other week, she loved that
06:01:51 <CraigC> wow, that would be way cool..... 6 cubs????
06:03:48 <Dave from B™> I haven't been to the park before June in quite awhile. Spring can be a lot of fun with wildlife
06:04:03 <CraigC> I'll let my sister know, they are headed to West on April 30th, they work at the RV place there
06:04:47 <Dave from B™> You know I was only kidding.....I will have SB on my mind until I get it.
06:05:18 <CraigC> OMH, you got me.... LMAO
06:06:20 <CraigC> is ti Giant?
06:06:30 <CraigC> keep going, plume
06:06:34 <ynpvisitor77> or grotto
06:08:49 <CraigC> not enough of a plume in this cold for Giant, bummer
06:14:47 <Joe> Dave, how was the big H?
06:15:06 <Joe> How is the shoulder?
06:16:18 <Dave from B™> Hi Joe!
06:16:48 <Joe> WB Dave
06:17:38 <Dave from B™> I hated to come back. Shoulder is doing great. PT later today where I think we move on to the strengthening stage
06:18:04 <Joe> wow! that is great!
06:18:22 <ynpvisitor77> Grand
06:20:16 <Joe> have to head out, see ypu later
06:22:43 <CraigC> cya Joe
06:24:31 <Mike J> Welcome back, Dave
06:24:42 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Mike J
06:25:05 <Mike J> Ready to move there permanently? Or would you just melt if you were there too long?
06:25:07 <Pound of Curium> Umm, that looks like a lot more steam to me.
06:25:42 <Pound of Curium> Grand 2nd, maybe?
06:26:00 <Pound of Curium> But we'lll never know for sure
06:32:00 <Dave from B™> Mike J, I will be attempting to snowbird somewhere warm for 1-2 months within 5 years. It won't be Hawaii because it is too expensive but maybe south Florida or the Caribbean
06:32:29 <Dave from B™> I can probably stay 3 weeks in the Caribbean for the price of 1 week in Hawaii
06:34:27 <Mike J> Yeah, Hawaii ain't cheap. I'd suggest AZ, but away from Phx (we're way too big here.) Some great places to explore when the weather is nice (winter)
06:36:40 <Dave from B™> We love to explore but I love warm ocean water:)
06:37:08 <Dave from B™> We already have friends snowbirding in AZ for the past 2 years
06:37:14 <Dave from B™> We may have to visit
06:38:10 <Mike J> I understand that whole "water" thing. My wife, born and raised in Phx, is addicted to beaches.
06:38:56 <Dave from B™> I don't like to sunbath but I do love the surf and sand running thru my toes
06:39:56 <Mike J> She doesn't even need that much. She just likes to look out at the ocean and the waves. (And any sealife - dolphons, seals, etc. - are a bonus.)
06:40:25 <Dave from B™> We had a blast watching turtles and whales
06:41:49 <Dave from B™> We walked about 50 miles in 7 days
06:42:05 <Mike J> That's the greatest thing about this semi-retirement. The ability to get out and just see...things.
06:42:27 <Mike J> (Didn't mean to rub in that whole semi-retirment thing to everyone. Bad enough we're basking in mid-70s temperatures.)
06:42:36 <Mike J> (Oops. There I go again.)
06:43:10 <Dave from B™> Slowing down is great. It only takes me 2 days to catch up instead of 2 weeks when my daughter wasn't here.
06:43:17 <CraigC> Mike J, we're not bragging, we're encouraging.... retirement is awesome
06:46:19 <Kent> Dave, I was less than nice while you were gone but I did apologize. :) Great you had a good time.
06:59:05 <Dave from B™> You were mean to ME while I was gone?
07:01:55 <ynpvisitor40> bhi
07:02:00 <ynpvisitor35> ..
07:02:02 <ynpvisitor35> .
07:02:04 <ynpvisitor35> .
07:02:06 <ynpvisitor35> .
07:02:30 <Dave from B™> Anyone else have multiple freezes this morning?
07:03:09 <ynpvisitor...> Working fine here
07:03:41 <Mike J> Just realized it happened with the bhi alert
07:03:53 <ynpvisitor...> Indy on Static
07:03:57 <Mike J> Refresh and workint now
07:05:37 <ynpvisitor35> :bee:
07:05:52 <CraigC> awesome
07:06:41 <Dave from B™> Too late to send a text now:(
07:12:12 <ynpvisitor...> One of the better eruptions I have seen on static. Well lit to start
07:12:50 <CraigC> yeah; https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/03212019/360.jpg
07:15:32 <ynpvisitor60> :P
07:16:04 <ynpvisitor60> Something smells fishy in this room today.
07:17:09 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:17:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
07:20:01 <CraigC> OF
07:20:53 <Dave from B™> I see #18 is a little fast of late
07:21:14 <Dave from B™> Now, if he can only slow down going to the pits
07:21:33 <Kevin L™🌵> That didn't even matter!
07:22:47 <ynpvisitor...> 0921 wc with my delay
07:22:57 <ynpvisitor46> I got it
07:23:51 <Katie> Good morning
07:24:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I would have never guessed when I watched that 12 year old race the legend car that he would become a legend himself.
07:24:06 <Sam> Was that a long?
07:24:13 <Sam> I came in the middle of it
07:26:02 <Katie> Sam, you can check it by "rewinding" on the static.
07:26:49 <Sam> I always forget I can do that
07:27:46 <Sam> Daisy should be next
07:32:35 <Casey> Daisy ie
07:32:43 <Casey> I think
07:32:54 <Casey> maybe just a lot of steam from heating up actually
07:33:02 <Casey> or late in the eruption
07:35:22 <Dave from B™> Yep....it's amazing how many younger brothers are better than their older siblings
07:44:18 <Pound of Curium> OK, you can all thank me for BH - I was in a meeting
07:48:17 <Dave from B™> Did you know Benjamin Franklin is credited with that axiom?
07:49:12 <ynpvisitor31> "I was in a meeting"?
07:50:47 <Dave from B™> No....an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
07:51:26 <Dave from B™> However, BF wasn't talking about health; he was talking about fire safety
07:53:40 <CraigC> Davepedia
07:54:26 <Pound of Curium> I wonder if there might be a Giant Hot Period happening?
07:54:32 <Dave from B™> I just like to pass along fun facts
07:55:37 <ynpvisitor115> that is a lot steam at Giant Grotto area
07:56:03 <Pound of Curium> obviously there are other possibilities
07:59:38 <CraigC> yay, my stocks are finally back to where they were before the downturns over the winter
08:00:40 <CraigC> feds announced no rate increase yesterday
08:00:51 <ynpvisitor93> Riverside?
08:02:06 <CraigC> ynpvisitor93, Riverside is right of that steam
08:02:23 <ynpvisitor93> so what's active?
08:02:24 <Pound of Curium> No, that's not the Riverside location. Could be Grotto, Rocket...
08:03:06 <CraigC> ynpvisitor93, check this; http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
08:03:22 <ynpvisitor93> have it, still can't figure things out on the webcam
08:03:48 <CraigC> and wait til they change the cam location...LOL
08:03:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Prepare to be more confused.
08:04:05 <Dave from B™> Craig, no rate increase is always good news
08:04:09 <ynpvisitor93> thought grotto was to the right of Castle; all looks different than being there
08:04:28 <CraigC> grotto IS to the right
08:04:42 <CraigC> Castle is out of view to the left right now
08:05:17 <ynpvisitor93> the steam behind the trees is even right of Grand (?)
08:05:23 <CraigC> yup
08:09:09 <CraigC> 2 sources of steam back there now?
08:09:33 <ynpvisitor93> more confusing, lol
08:10:08 <CraigC> maybe Grotto and a Giant Hot Period?
08:10:37 <Pound of Curium> IDK. I thought Giant stole energy from Grotto
08:11:08 <CraigC> I don't know either, just wonderin' aloud
08:11:36 <CraigC> looks like 3 plumes, no?
08:11:43 <Pound of Curium> I always forget about lovely Artemesia, which is a possibility too.
08:13:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Grotto and Grotto Fountain.
08:13:32 <CraigC> maybe the one to the right is Artemesia
08:13:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe Spa major
08:16:51 <Kevin L™🌵> That looks like Riverside now.
08:17:16 <ynpvisitor107> That looks like Fan and Mortar
08:17:48 <ynpvisitor107> I thought Riverside was the two pointy trees to the right. Its really early, but not impossible for Riverside.
08:18:00 <ynpvisitor107> The other steam looks like Grobiant.
08:18:14 <Ryan> Gront*
08:18:19 <CraigC> I figured it was Ryan, LOL
08:18:28 <Katie> ha ha
08:20:46 <Pound of Curium> So I think the newest plume is Riverside.
08:20:59 <Ryan> Nah, I agree - tis Riverside. Steam is too narrow and not chaotic enough for Fan and Mortar
08:21:08 <Ryan> The other plume is Grotto or Giant (Gront)
08:21:24 <Dave from B™> I pick Grotto and Riverside
08:21:38 <Ryan> With Grotto Fountain being active again we could be seeing that. When did it start?
08:22:01 <CraigC> IMO, there were 3 plumes from the Grotto area
08:22:35 <Ryan> What was the timing? Grotto Fountain would have a gradual start and then Grotto would be a pretty big puff one to two minutes later.
08:22:37 <ynpvisitor17> Turtle major?
08:23:54 <Ryan> I have to go drop off homework, enjoy the Giant start while I am gone lol
08:24:25 <CraigC> it won't erupt until Dave or I leave
08:24:49 <Dave from B™> I just got here!!!
08:25:03 <CraigC> and?
08:25:04 <Ryan> I think Riverside 1024ie is a good entry to do
08:25:22 <Ryan> 1014ie*
08:25:41 <Ryan> And Grotto 1020ie is probably safe too. But what do I know? lol
08:26:02 <Ryan> Dont put me in any relationship with those entries or you'll cause a wildfire.
08:26:15 <CraigC> Vernier Caliper ie?
08:26:30 <Kevin L™🌵> We can blame Dave now.
08:26:55 <ynpvisitor115> Grotto steam was goimg for while. long before 1020
08:27:10 <Dave from B™> If in doubt use ????????
08:27:27 <CraigC> ynpvisitor115, yeah, 93 asked about it at 1000
08:27:35 <Eric> Dave!!!!
08:27:38 <Eric> Good Morning
08:28:08 <Eric> You back or just connecting from paradise?
08:28:29 <CraigC> hey Eric
08:28:36 <Eric> Hi Craig
08:28:42 <Ryan> See, I cant even call an ie time :lol::lol::lol::lol:
08:29:05 <Ryan> I just got here at that time, so thats what I picked lol
08:29:13 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric...I'm back:(:(:(
08:29:36 <Dave from B™> I had a GREAT time. Empty nesting is going to be a LOT of fun
08:30:59 <Eric> :-D
08:31:08 <Eric> Glad you enjoy yourselves
08:31:20 <Eric> Hawaii is a great place to relax
08:31:47 <Eric> I don't usually do much other than float in the ocean and watch the fish and turtles swim by :-P
08:36:35 <Kevin L™🌵> That empty nest will fill up with Grandchildren.
08:38:21 <CraigC> anyone want to enter Riverside?
08:40:36 <CraigC> I did
08:42:21 <Eric> :thumbsup:
08:46:44 <Dave from B™> eric, we aren't big relaxers...I do love walking on the beach and keeping my feet in the water
08:46:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
08:47:08 <Dave from B™> My wife did glass blowing. she had fun
08:47:26 <Pound of Curium> A visible Aurum!
08:48:07 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a good one!
08:50:08 <Dave from B™> First of the season fresh halibut lands today
08:51:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave came back for the halibut?
08:51:31 <Kevin L™🌵> That is one UGLY fish but it sure tastes good.
08:52:21 <Dave from B™> hahaha. I just heard that same joke on our FB page about 3 minutes ago
08:52:49 <Kevin L™🌵> How much is it going for retail now?
08:53:49 <Dave from B™> 21.39 is not bad for opening price
08:54:02 <Dave from B™> We should be 18.99 - 19.99 within 2 weeks
08:54:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Not bad.
09:10:34 <Betty> morning all
09:10:51 <Dave from B™> Hey Betty, fishynp
09:11:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
09:11:38 <Betty> hi Dave from B™, are you back already??
09:11:50 <GE ©> Morning to all (except Betty--Good Evening)
09:12:08 <Betty> hi Kevin and hi GE ©
09:14:57 <fishynp> hola
09:15:13 <Betty> hi fishynp
09:17:38 <Betty> Dome ie
09:22:33 <ynpvisitor15> Dave from B broke BH. I vote we send him back to the island, at his expense.
09:23:23 <ynpvisitor31> b ee seems fine to me :thumbsup:
09:23:56 <Dave from B™> What do you mean? BH already erupted:)
09:24:09 <Katie> Except for the "his expense" part, Dave might not mind going back to the island
09:24:27 <ynpvisitor15> Early, that is broke to me.
09:26:00 <ynpvisitor15> Anyone see the super worm last night?
09:26:11 <Dave from B™> I'm holding everyone in this room responsible for Giant not erupting in the last 10 days
09:28:11 <ynpvisitor15> It went when the cam was down, off, foggy, dark, or pointed some other direction.
09:31:21 <Dave from B™> 15, BH conditions were great this morning
09:31:39 <Kevin L™🌵> :P
09:32:16 <Eric> bummed I missed bh :-(
09:32:30 <ynpvisitor15> It weren't even light out yet!
09:32:39 <Eric> I hope it's interval doesn't shorten it into the night time
09:32:51 <ynpvisitor15> 2 votes to ban him to the island.
09:32:53 <Dave from B™> I apologize for not sending a text. My mind is still on HI time
09:33:38 <ynpvisitor15> You can take the the little umbrella out of your coffee cup now.
09:36:35 <ynpvisitor31> Eric, seems like gradually shorter would be good in a month :)
09:37:09 <Eric> Good point 31...I like your thinking :-D
09:37:56 <ynpvisitor31> 21, 18, 16, 15, 12, 11!
09:38:54 <Eric> truthfully any BH interval is fine with me while in basin, as long as it's not wildly irregular.
09:39:14 <Eric> It's so close to the cabins, it's pretty easy to catch :-D
09:39:52 <Eric> Now that I am walking 5-10 miles a day, even down basin will just be a quick excursion.
09:42:00 <Dave from B™> Eric, we did log 50 miles in a week in Hawaii...2 days over 10 miles
09:42:31 <Eric> Very cool! That is a lot of movement.
09:42:57 <Dave from B™> Yep... the bars were spaced far apart:D
09:43:29 <Eric> haha
09:43:40 <Eric> Is that how you escaped their jail?
09:43:53 <Eric> :-P
09:43:57 <Eric> horrible pun
09:44:46 <ynpvisitor77> is anyone's video ging black for a second every now and then
09:44:48 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
09:44:58 <ynpvisitor77> going*
09:45:19 <Dave from B™> Big Beach on Maui is the most beautiful beach I have seen
09:52:01 <ynpvisitor77> daisy
09:52:23 <Eric> I have not spent much time down there Dave...it's always a long haul from up North and I hate driving. Will have to go down there and spend a day on my next trip.
09:52:32 <ynpvisitor77> too early but there it is
09:53:08 <Dave from B™> Next time you go, let me know and I'll return the favor and let you know about some fun places
09:53:20 <Eric> :thumbsup:
09:53:48 <Dave from B™> Driving is much more fun in a Camaro convertible:). Only $70 more than any other vehicle on the lot
09:53:59 <Dave from B™> from Hertz
09:54:25 <Ryan> I still dont see Daisy
09:54:30 <Ryan> Am I on a seriously delay?
09:54:48 <ynpvisitor77> almost gone
09:55:01 <Dave from B™> I see nothing
09:55:17 <Ryan> I never saw Daisy at all, I've been watching for a while now.
09:55:42 <ynpvisitor31> reee-wind
09:56:42 <ynpvisitor77> i saw it, i have it on my replay started 1151:10
09:56:54 <Ryan> alrighty
09:57:24 <Ryan> really short interval, and equally short eruption then
09:58:18 <ynpvisitor77> ended 1154:51
09:59:28 <ynpvisitor77> You will see it on the replay when it is posted this eveining
09:59:57 <Eric> Yes, I saw it too when 77 called it
10:00:34 <Eric> Apparently you looked away for a few moments there Ryan :-P
10:00:41 <ynpvisitor77> good then i don't have to post a video of it
10:00:53 <Eric> No, you are all good 77
10:01:03 <ynpvisitor77> tks
10:01:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I sure missed it but then again it was early enough I wasn't really looking.
10:01:43 <ynpvisitor77> shortest interval i have seen
10:01:48 <Dave from B™> It's hard for me to look up when I'm typing:)
10:02:14 <Eric> ahh, you have started looking at the keys...it has improved your typing :-P
10:02:26 <CraigC> LOL
10:02:38 <ynpvisitor31> Go Sp lendid
10:02:58 <Dave from B™> :D
10:02:58 <Eric> haha...I think we need shorter than 2:20 for splendid...don't we?
10:03:08 <ynpvisitor77> i was think along that line
10:10:17 <ynpvisitor77> lion

10:27:16 <Betty> nope
10:27:59 <Kevin L™🌵> You need to buy a new car Betty
10:28:09 <CraigC> might be holding out for Brexit
10:28:43 <Eric> ok...well, it's not a caching issue as I just forced that to update. hmmm, do your chat and top dashboard clocks match?
10:29:02 <Betty> no
10:29:18 <Eric> what time does your top right corner clock say right now?
10:29:30 <Eric> 12:29:30 MDT
10:29:31 <Betty> 1229 in chat, 1129 on corner
10:29:41 <Eric> does it say MDT?
10:29:44 <Betty> 1129 MST
10:31:16 <Eric> curious...do you observe Daylight savings time in your region?
10:31:41 <Betty> we did not change yet
10:32:01 <Betty> we change March 31
10:32:39 <Eric> ahhhh...now I see the issue
10:32:44 <Betty> I never had that before
10:32:56 <Eric> it is using local time to determine if it should display DST or not
10:32:57 <Dave from B™> It says MST
10:33:06 <Betty> we usually change at different times
10:33:08 <Eric> is your clock off an hour too DAve?
10:33:15 <Dave from B™> yes
10:33:35 <Betty> he did not shift refresh yet :-)
10:33:46 <Dave from B™> shhh, Betty:)
10:33:55 <Betty> :-G
10:34:20 <Dave from B™> now, it changed
10:34:31 <CraigC> Munchausen by Dave
10:36:53 <Betty> Plows on YFT seismo?
10:40:56 <Eric> ok...a refresh should fix it for you now Betty
10:41:20 <Eric> Yep...those look like plow tracks on the seismo
10:41:47 <Betty> wooot
10:42:09 <Betty> fixed!
10:42:21 <Betty> thanks, Eric
10:42:22 <Eric> I changed how I was detecting DST and didn't even think about it using the local users time as the base :-(
10:42:28 <CraigC> good job, Eric
10:42:47 <Eric> It would have worked for you after 3/31 Betty :-P
10:43:04 <Betty> that was what I thought
10:43:27 <Eric> Glad it is now working
10:43:32 <Betty> but as I said it always worked before
10:44:04 <Betty> athis was the first time it deffered
10:44:10 <Betty> differed
10:44:11 <Eric> Yep...the previous way I had to manually enter the start/stop dates of DST each year. I didn't want to have to continue to do that
10:44:21 <Betty> k
10:44:37 <Eric> It broke it for everyone when I forgot to update the script each year
11:35:25 <ynpvisitor46> Nice lion
11:52:02 <CraigC> hey Linda
11:52:38 <LindaG> Hi Craig
11:52:49 <LindaG> Its quiet
11:53:06 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:53:33 <LindaG> I'm in Cape may, but it's raining 😠
11:54:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought may had flowers.
11:54:32 <CraigC> OF
11:56:57 <LindaG> Not yet, soon though
11:58:16 <Sam> Entered OF!
11:58:26 <LindaG> Hi sam
11:58:39 <Sam> Hello
11:59:05 <CraigC> hey Sam
12:00:25 <LindaG> Wow 50 degrees snow is melting
12:00:49 <Dave from B™> Time for PT and then home. Have a great evening everyone!
12:00:57 <CraigC> it was snowing here in Utah this morning
12:01:05 <CraigC> cya Dave
12:01:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Dave
12:02:14 <ynpvisitor77> GRAND
12:02:23 <CraigC> early
12:02:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Also a lot harder to see without all the steam.
12:03:19 <LindaG> They seem so small, its weird
12:04:00 <CraigC> Castle can go anytime, also
12:04:07 <ynpvisitor74> Nice Grand
12:04:47 <Sam> Daisy should go in the next 30-45 minutes
12:05:14 <Sam> Nice bursts
12:06:35 <ynpvisitor77> 2nd, 3rd and 4th will looknice:)
12:09:44 <ynpvisitor77> 8min
12:11:16 <Pound of Curium> Watching
12:11:46 <ynpvisitor77> 10min
12:12:29 <Pound of Curium> Tending to doubt it
12:12:43 <Kevin L™🌵> I think Dave broke it.
12:12:58 <ynpvisitor77> yes he did!
12:13:10 <ynpvisitor77> DDISY
12:13:15 <CraigC> daisy
12:14:07 <Kevin L™🌵> No wonder we missed the last one.
12:14:35 <ynpvisitor77> tiny daisy back to normal summer
12:14:57 <CraigC> Castle on deck
12:14:58 <LindaG> Really looks weak
12:17:05 <LindaG> I see bee went early, how was it
12:17:25 <Kevin L™🌵> No text :P
12:17:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I was reading email and missed it.
12:18:36 <LindaG> I know, I logged on thinking it hadn't gone yet. Oh no, emails are evil
12:22:03 <ynpvisitor77> CASTLE
12:23:23 <ynpvisitor77> no quit
12:24:08 <CraigC> Giant next? :)
12:24:27 <CraigC> went from quiet to awesome in a hurry
12:24:33 <ynpvisitor77> should work :)
12:33:32 <ynpvisitor77> LIION
12:35:08 <ynpvisitor77> castle major
12:35:36 <ynpvisitor77> spelled lion wrong
12:39:42 <Pound of Curium> Actually, that could be a simple way to note Lion eruptions in sequence. LIon, LIIon, LIIIon, LIVon, LVon, etc.
12:40:42 <LindaG> Pound of Curium, haha
12:45:53 <Pound of Curium> Just trying to be helpful
12:46:09 <LindaG> 😊
12:51:34 <LindaG> Well guess the show is over. 😊 bbl maybe
13:27:18 <ynpvisitor117> OF
13:27:37 <ynpvisitor117> and Aurum
13:27:40 <ynpvisitor117> ?
13:28:03 <Sam> Was that exact start 117>
13:28:05 <Betty> woot
13:28:08 <Sam> Or Betty? :)
13:28:15 <Betty> hi Sam
13:28:18 <Kevin L™🌵> That is interesting
13:28:20 <Sam> Hello!
13:28:34 <Sam> What's interesting?
13:28:36 <Betty> OF 1526
13:28:43 <Eric> https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/oldfaithvc.jpg?1553203708216
13:28:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Very short Aurum interval
13:28:48 <Sam> Thank you
13:28:53 <Eric> Was that aurum or pump?
13:29:01 <Eric> I didn't see it other than the static shot I linked
13:29:02 <Betty> Aurum
13:29:09 <Betty> check static
13:29:26 <Eric> This link I copied above is the best shot from static
13:29:28 <Sam> It's had a few 4 hour intervals
13:29:36 <Sam> Checking the past logs on GT
13:29:51 <Eric> 4h would be exceptionally short
13:30:05 <Betty> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/03212019/749.jpg
13:30:17 <Kevin L™🌵> the 3:31 is better
13:30:47 <Eric> haha...woops, that is the shot I meant to link betty :-P
13:30:59 <Kevin L™🌵> That one is good too.
13:31:02 <Betty> hehe
13:31:34 <Eric> I just thought aurum was slightly to the right on static
13:32:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Been a LONG time since I saw a confirmed 4h Aurum interval.
13:33:18 <Betty> I call it Spring fever
13:39:40 <Eric> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/03212019/470.jpg
13:40:42 <Eric> That is a steam cloud near when the earlier aurum was called, but I don't see anything on static during the 10:46 timeframe. But, it was pretty steamy back there this morning.
13:41:06 <Eric> webcam down....
13:41:28 <CraigC> dang
13:41:49 <Eric> now it's back
13:42:08 <Eric> and down again
13:42:10 <Betty> mine just stopped
13:42:29 <Eric> coyotes chewing on the cables
13:42:58 <Betty> Lion
13:43:02 <Eric> or snowplows cut too deep
13:43:39 <Eric> yep, lion ie
13:43:51 <Eric> back up
13:44:29 <Kevin L™🌵> The earlier Aurum was good. We got a closeup on the cam.
13:45:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls died too.
13:49:44 <Sam> Just had to refresh
13:52:53 <ynpvisitor39> What is the vault?
13:53:29 <Eric> Context?
13:54:02 <Eric> Its the thing in a bank where they store money.
13:54:30 <ynpvisitor10> Wonder why vault is not blue
13:54:50 <Katie> it is now.
13:54:55 <ynpvisitor10> Oh, maybe you cannot put the before it
13:55:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a ? after.
13:55:36 <ynpvisitor10> Maybe 39 is asking about the geyser
13:55:42 <Eric> It's the question mark after it
13:55:45 <ynpvisitor10> Vault?
13:55:55 <ynpvisitor10> The vault
13:55:58 <Betty> Vault ?
13:56:09 <ynpvisitor10> Ha
13:57:00 <Eric> https://goo.gl/5XwTTB
14:00:05 <Eric> vault - Last eruption series in 1998 - 1 hour intervals - 6-20ft durations of 4-10minutes
14:00:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight. Enjoy Giant
14:00:27 <Eric> Night Kevin
14:00:39 <Betty> Knight Kevin
14:00:48 <Betty> need sleep? :-D
14:09:56 <Sam> Riverside should be soon-ish
14:14:52 <ynpvisitor65> Eric - was that when Vault was having independent series or with Giantess?
14:15:32 <Eric> That was an independent series from 1998, extracted from TSB latest edition.
14:16:11 <GO VAULT> the initial is cool
14:16:40 <GO VAULT> thumps and the surface comes up from depth looking like its covered in saran wrap
14:16:59 <Eric> Sounds wonderful :-D
14:17:12 <Eric> I would like to see ANY activity on the Giantess platform
14:17:19 <GO VAULT> most thumpers start from overflow. I wonder how many start from depth and have the water rise to the surface?
14:18:14 <Eric> doesn't arty do that?
14:18:40 <GO VAULT> artie is at overflow for a long time, like Giantess, Oblong, Opal Pool
14:18:45 <Eric> artemisia
14:19:09 <Eric> But when it starts, it has a huge push from below and everything becomes fast moving waterfalls
14:19:23 <GO VAULT> Vault drains after Giantess starts and then has its initial come up from an empth crater, water rising and bouncing
14:19:58 <Betty> I love that wave from Great Fountain
14:20:05 <GO VAULT> i never saw one of the independent series start, only when the series was already going
14:20:05 <Eric> ohhh, that would be cool
14:20:34 <Eric> I am getting excited about spring...can't wait to get there :-D
14:21:00 <GO VAULT> 65 days
14:21:08 <Eric> I still need to do more shoshone research
14:21:37 <Eric> Yep, getting close
14:21:46 <GO VAULT> too wet and snowy in spring for me
14:22:36 <ynpvisitor52> GO VAULT, did ou get snow by you?
14:22:55 <Eric> daisy
14:23:10 <Eric> wow...130m interval
14:23:11 <GO VAULT> rain rain rain
14:23:22 <GO VAULT> i think there was snow in West VA
14:23:36 <Eric> keep dropping daisy!
14:23:40 <Betty> 158 days
14:23:44 <LindaG> W. Virginia iOS having snow problem
14:23:58 <GO VAULT> nice Betty
14:24:16 <Eric> too many days...but I hope to see you when you get here Betty! Send me your dates so I can put it on my calendar
14:24:18 <LindaG> *is
14:24:35 <GO VAULT> its been a long time since Daisy was under 2h
14:25:04 <Betty> yeah, maybe 154 to see Eric :-)
14:25:13 <Eric> :-D
14:25:53 <ynpvisitor94> Daisy realy early
14:26:44 <GO VAULT> 1h45m would be better
14:27:10 <Eric> Well, the interval seems headed that way...hopefully it keeps going
14:27:39 <GO VAULT> then we can wait for Splendid
14:28:06 <Eric> I have new rain gear for this spring...I will be good come rain, snow or shine
14:28:30 <Eric> plus a new bigger backpack for easier storage of all my geyser crap :-D
14:28:55 <GO VAULT> ready for the SB all-nighters with Dave?
14:41:18 <Betty> headed out, night guys
14:41:53 <GO VAULT> night Betty
14:51:29 <ynpvisitor77> Lion
14:51:33 <GO VAULT> lion
15:01:02 <Casey> Very windy OF
15:01:10 <ynpvisitor77> of
15:01:50 <ynpvisitor74> Anyone with travel advice around here?
15:02:26 <Eric> What kind are you looking for 74?
15:02:35 <Eric> Go west young man or woman :-D
15:03:04 <ynpvisitor74> We can skip the you can not or should not do it part. but...
15:03:47 <GO GOGGLE> yes travel is good
15:03:48 <ynpvisitor74> I know someone that wants to do a day trip through the park in mid May and possible a second day back through on the way home.
15:03:49 <Eric> If you are going to say yellowstone in one day...don't do it!
15:03:54 <Eric> hahahaha
15:04:18 <Eric> What direction are they coming in and what direction are they leaving?
15:04:22 <GO GOGGLE> going in and out of which entrances?
15:04:27 <ynpvisitor74> Coming from the West and headed East
15:04:29 <Eric> :-D
15:04:45 <Eric> South or Northwest?
15:05:08 <ynpvisitor74> Kind of open on the Entrances.
15:05:22 <Eric> I assume West Yellowstone entrance and then leave out of the Northwest Entrance.
15:05:30 <Eric> sorry, Northeast
15:05:32 <ynpvisitor74> They want to see the geysers in the basin, and critters.
15:05:37 <GO GOGGLE> coming in from West and out toward COdy .... stop at Fountain Paint Pots, Old Faithful, West Thumb
15:06:07 <CraigC> and Black Sand Basin is comact and quick
15:06:13 <CraigC> compact
15:06:17 <ynpvisitor74> What I am loking for is beds. I looked at Gardiner, and they think the fixtures are gold or something.
15:06:29 <GO GOGGLE> I would pick Biscuit so they can see Jewel
15:06:32 <Eric> Stay in West
15:06:49 <Eric> forget gardiner
15:06:59 <CraigC> I just booked mid may in West Yellowstone, 166/night
15:07:19 <GO GOGGLE> so just silver plated Craig
15:07:35 <Eric> Yep...everything is expensive around yellowstone
15:07:40 <Eric> in the summer
15:08:35 <ynpvisitor74> Ouch, they may have to do the car camp at Madison.
15:08:56 <Eric> If they can book it...probably sold out
15:09:05 <CraigC> 166 is expensive for lodging?
15:09:29 <ynpvisitor94> Campsites can still be gotten if you call the reseation number and don't try to do it online.
15:09:35 <Eric> Most people around here book their accomidations 365+ days ahead of time.
15:09:41 <ynpvisitor94> *reservation
15:09:58 <Eric> Madison is nice and central
15:09:59 <ynpvisitor94> I just extended my stay at Madison with no trouble!
15:10:04 <ynpvisitor94> May
15:10:46 <ynpvisitor94> As a senior it's 15.00 a night!
15:10:56 <Eric> May is way easier than june, july august I think
15:11:02 <CraigC> I thought 166 was good for a hotel, it jumps to about 300 in June
15:11:33 <ynpvisitor94> One of the reasons I never go in summer!
15:11:39 <CraigC> same
15:11:52 <CraigC> 1000 a trip is more than I care to spend for lodging
15:12:01 <CraigC> hey Kat
15:12:05 <ynpvisitor74> Madison is getting full in May. We have never had problems in the past, then last year we got left with no place to stay in the park.
15:12:08 <Kat> Hi Craig
15:13:31 <ynpvisitor74> Well, I will let them know. They may have to get up real early and start from farther away, or do the car camp thing.
15:13:47 <ynpvisitor74> It is soo much easier when you pull your house with you.
15:27:10 <ynpvisitor74> Madison is showing full for me. Lots of tent sites.
15:28:49 <Kat> It does show full online - call them
15:29:43 <Eric> Well, they don't open for another month or so and I don't think xanterra holds out reservations for phone versus online
15:29:52 <Eric> do they?
15:30:01 <Kat> The other day online there were no there tent sites- but they had them! CallYNP reservation
15:30:12 <ynpvisitor74> Thanks for the advice. Will figure out dates and call them.
15:30:21 <Kat> *Call YNP
15:30:37 <ynpvisitor74> And let the travelers know the bad news for rooms.
15:30:56 <Kat> They often have sites by phone that are not posted online.
15:31:25 <Eric> The other idea, is keep your nose to the ground about 30 days before arrival...reservations do get cancelled often at 35-30 days
15:31:54 <Kat> They put only so many sites and rooms/cabins online. I find I get better results by calling.
15:32:15 <ynpvisitor74> We did play phone tag with them last year. I think spots come and go every few minutes as they update things.
15:32:25 <ynpvisitor74> Later.
15:33:01 <Kat> I may have some nights I will cancel -just not sure yet! Call frequently - always cancellations!
15:33:01 <CraigC> Kat, do they have showers at Madison Campground?
15:33:32 <Kat> No - but they have them OF and at Canyon
15:33:49 <CraigC> I've used both of those
15:34:11 <CraigC> I haven't camped in YNP in 20 years
15:34:49 <Kat> I'll be at Canyon some too - I like both Madison and canyon!
15:35:00 <Eric> Madison is nice for gazing
15:35:11 <Eric> especially with steamboat active
15:35:28 <Eric> saves you an extra 20-30 minutes on your drive north
15:35:37 <Kat> Really? When it's still cold - I car camp! I a big SUV - it's easy!
15:36:04 <Kat> Lots of days at Madison - you may find me camped out at SB!
15:36:35 <Eric> Yes, wish I had more free time...I would definitely say for longer trips at madison
15:36:40 <Eric> stay
15:37:01 <Kat> SB is a must! Hope someone will cover the cam for me while I'm there! :)
15:37:13 <Eric> sharing a room makes it more reasonable staying at OF, but still not as cheap as camping.
15:39:52 <Kat> I like camping - cook my own food, etc. It's Heaven!
15:40:33 <CraigC> I used to, now I like a long hot shower and lay in bed watching tv
15:40:50 <Eric> haha :-D
15:41:16 <Eric> Yes, the cooking my own food part would be easier camping...xanterra makes it a PITA to cook your own.
15:42:12 <Eric> But I do love sitting at the bar in lower hams grabbing an omelet :-D
15:42:24 <Kat> Craig - you can do that at home!
15:42:28 <CraigC> even when we stay in rooms, we take lots of our own food, lots of lunch meat and cut up veggies and dip
15:42:45 <GO GOGGLE> canyon is probably quicker to get to Norris
15:42:52 <CraigC> Kat, yes, and I like how I live in my home :)
15:43:21 <Kat> Been known to grab a bite and a malt at Hams myself!
15:43:22 <Eric> You going to be in the basin over memorial day week Craig?
15:43:36 <Eric> and Kat?
15:43:39 <CraigC> Eric, yeah, going mid may, then again for memorial
15:43:52 <CraigC> taking my mom 13th thru 17th
15:44:01 <Eric> when do you return?
15:44:18 <Eric> Isn't memorial day the next weekend?
15:44:29 <Kat> I maybe.. I actually have reservations from 5/10 to 6/3.
15:44:56 <GO GOGGLE> mem day is 27th
15:45:21 <CraigC> we are going on thursday and leaving sunday, the day before memorial, how about you guys?
15:45:30 <Eric> right...so the weekend starts the 24th
15:45:44 <Kat> I probably won't be there the entire time - waiting to see what happens with a family member having surgery.
15:46:19 <Kat> Would like to meet you guys in person!
15:46:32 <CraigC> me too
15:46:50 <CraigC> only person I have met that comes on here is Micah
15:47:15 <GO GOGGLE> Micah should be there too
15:47:34 <GO GOGGLE> i arrive Sat 25th in the afternoon
15:47:43 <Kat> I am friends with Caroline and Gary for a long time. But haven't met anyone else.
15:48:06 <GO GOGGLE> are they going in May?
15:48:21 <Kat> I know some other gazers but they do't come on this site.
15:49:00 <Kat> Carolyn will be there, I have to call Gary - he usually does.
15:49:03 <CraigC> I met rocco, tara, bill and carol bev, tom, stevo
15:49:26 <CraigC> others I don't remember names
15:49:49 <GO GOGGLE> been a while since carol was in chat and running the cam
15:50:08 <Kat> I may have met Tara, do you know MA?
15:50:14 <Kevin L™🌵> i hear lightning struck last knight graham.
15:50:16 <CraigC> I haven't met MA
15:50:37 <GO GOGGLE> yes Kevin but we got a point
15:50:39 <CraigC> there was a really cool dude that rides a Schwinn Sting Ray in the UGB
15:50:47 <GO GOGGLE> and an exciting end to the game
15:50:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. beats a full loss
15:51:16 <GO GOGGLE> means Dave is still behing us even if Isles win tonight
15:51:36 <Kevin L™🌵> There are a few I am nervous about on our schedule
15:51:42 <Kat> And on to sports! HAHA
15:52:03 <GO GOGGLE> must be because Kevin isnt going to YNP this year?
15:52:49 <Kat> :)
15:53:03 <Kat> Stepping away to give the dog her medicine!
15:53:24 <Kat> Be back..
15:53:38 <GO GOGGLE> good luck
15:54:04 <GO GOGGLE> are you flying to YNP Eric?
