03:47:48 <ynpvisitor100> OF may be done already
03:48:24 <ynpvisitor100> lookedv post eruptive
03:57:30 <Joe> I wish I had not moved it, I cant place anything
03:58:19 <Betty> morning Joe
03:58:38 <Joe> Hi Betty
03:58:38 <Betty> maybe if you try to get the lights out of view?
04:00:02 <Betty> is that the overnight preset?
04:00:22 <Betty> or don´t you have one?
04:01:19 <Betty> looks tricky
04:03:18 <Betty> we sure need the moon back
04:03:19 <Joe> that is the grand to Bh preset
04:04:22 <Joe> I'll try the other night preset
04:04:39 <Betty> I don´t have any orientation with the new views. could be view of geyser hill also :-p
04:05:06 <Betty> can you try to focus the cars?
04:06:15 <Betty> maybe it is easier to focus something and then move the cam?
04:06:48 <Joe> this is Castle to Lion since castle is due
04:07:47 <Joe> It is just very Dark
04:07:59 <Betty> yep
04:12:13 <Joe> I failed, I should have left it where it was
04:13:21 <Betty> you do a great job at this conditions during nights. No need to worry :-)
04:13:37 <Joe> We will get daylight soon but the geyers will have already erupted
04:21:51 <Joe> I can see Castle steam but at what stage
04:22:10 <Betty> I see that too
04:28:32 <Joe> DaveM is much better at this than I, he would hav caught the castle start and others
04:29:27 <Betty> you do a great job too
04:30:05 <Joe> Thanks, Betty
04:31:21 <LindaG> Good morning
04:31:34 <Betty> morning Linda
04:31:35 <Joe> Hi Linda
04:32:36 <LindaG> Hmmmm, dark
04:35:44 <Joe> That 0421 may have been Castle NS
04:36:29 <LindaG> You can see something out there. I'm impressed

04:41:47 <Joe> we ar 20 minutes +
04:42:10 <Joe> are*
04:42:11 <LindaGt> Pretty tall
04:44:07 <LindaGt> Hi craig
04:44:08 <CraigC> mornin
04:44:11 <CraigC> hey Linda
04:44:14 <CraigC> hey Joe
04:44:17 <CraigC> hey Betty
04:44:26 <Betty> morning CraigC
04:44:36 <Joe> Hi Craig
04:45:16 <LindaGt> Castle is churning
04:46:36 <LindaGt> We should see grand
04:47:22 <Joe> The view since just after 2 has been terrible until now
04:48:04 <Joe> I think Grand has left the station
04:48:28 <LindaGt>
04:49:55 <Joe> I hope I'm wrong and it is in a long interval, otherwise Look for it at ~ 10
04:50:23 <LindaGt> Ok
04:53:46 <LindaGt> Very steamy in grand area, but with grotto in view, who know
04:53:47 <Joe> Hard to make small moves, controls need a crosshair for positioning
04:54:29 <Joe> Even LC is making steam
04:55:15 <LindaGt> Sure is
04:56:26 <LindaGt> 19 degrees with 96 percent humidity
04:57:33 <Joe> OF might be ready soon
04:59:06 <LindaGt> I was thinking i had first shift. But I dont.
05:00:39 <Joe> Lots of water around OF , I probably missed that also
05:16:21 <LindaGt> So why is OF red
05:16:34 <LindaGt> Guess carnlights
05:17:21 <CraigC> teh debbil
05:17:37 <LindaGt> 😛
05:17:40 <CraigC> hey Kat
05:17:54 <LindaGt> Hope Mary didnt see that
05:18:08 <LindaGt> Hi kat
05:18:11 <Betty> morning Kat
05:18:43 <CraigC> maybe she IS teh debbil
05:20:09 <LindaGt> 👹
05:20:23 <LindaGt> That's a funky icon
05:28:17 <LindaGt> Wow is that sprinkler?
05:28:45 <Joe> It was

05:29:44 <CraigC> .
05:29:48 <CraigC> :)
05:30:15 <LindaGt> Well at least we have a time
05:30:57 <Joe> That is two mornings in a row, you caught that Betty :)
05:31:26 <Betty> I´m the OF whisperer ;-)
05:34:54 <Betty> glad I was able to beat Craig
05:35:52 <Joe> $ seconds
05:36:03 <Joe> 4 seconds
05:36:05 <Betty> hehehe
05:37:55 <Joe> Controls released to next camop, I've done enough damage....
05:41:48 <GO NYC> morning
05:42:07 <Joe> Morning Graham
05:42:22 <Betty> morning Graham
05:42:38 <Joe> How was the opera?
05:43:01 <LindaGt> GO NYC, good morning
05:45:42 <GO NYC> it was wonderful, part 3 of 4 in the Ring cycle, Siegfried. he is on stage most of the 5h opera. Great singing. Last part is tomorrow
05:46:03 <Rice> He is secretly going to the Hockey Games, and just telling us it is Opera!
05:46:27 <GO NYC> haha, I bet Art enjoyed yesterdays game
05:46:32 <Betty> :-)
05:46:43 <GO NYC> he had a great seat
05:46:49 <Betty> morning Rice
05:47:10 <Rice> Hello Betty
05:47:24 <Betty> great you enjoyed it, Graham
05:47:30 <GO NYC> tonight i downsize, from the 4000 seat Met to a small venue for 400 and see another decapitation
05:48:48 <GO NYC> looks cold in the park, 17F ... needs to warm up for Craig's visit
05:49:32 <Joe> Depression?
05:49:59 <GO NYC> thanks Betty. RIng Cycle is the pinnacle of opera and I saw the 4 opera cycle in DC 3 years ago, but here in NY it's so much better
05:50:10 <GO NYC> I will have to come and see it in Germany sometime
05:50:53 <Betty> yes, Bayreuth is best for it, but maybe expensive too
05:52:21 <GO NYC> its never cheap
05:53:08 <GO NYC> surprisingly my hotel in NY right across the street from the Met was inexpensive, not much more than a cabin with bath at OF
05:53:27 <Betty> wow, great
05:53:32 <GO NYC> inexpensive on a NY rate base anyway
05:53:52 <GO NYC> $200 a night. cheaper than the Inn or Snow Lodge room
05:59:35 <Betty> time for chores, bbl
06:00:00 <Betty> LC ie
06:31:01 <Kat> Morning all - signed on and then went to do a few chores.
06:36:11 <Joe> Hi Kat
06:36:32 <Kat> Hey Joe - how was overnight?
06:37:42 <Joe> Good until just after 2 am then terrible until 0430 then ok
06:38:08 <Joe> Sprinkler ie
06:38:47 <Kat> Sunrise in the basin! :)
06:39:19 <Kat> Is that steam from grotto
06:39:30 <Joe> Betty and Craig caught the morning OF while I was looking elsewhere
06:40:10 <Kat> Great - a stareting point!
06:40:19 <Kat> starting*
06:42:10 <Joe> I have looked at the overnight for the last Grand but can not find it, a couple maybes but nothing I would post
06:42:29 <Kat> So hard to tell..
06:44:41 <Eric> Morning all
06:44:55 <Kat> Hi Eric
06:45:02 <Eric> Brrr, nice and cold there this morning
06:45:03 <Joe> Hi Eric
06:45:15 <Eric> Hi Kat and Joe
06:45:23 <Kat> Hope warms just a little by next weekend!
06:45:28 <Joe> OF on static?
06:45:51 <Joe> .
06:45:53 <Joe> .
06:47:06 <Eric> Wow...that is quiet the lighting
06:47:32 <Joe> Cant tell if eruption or big preplay
06:47:42 <Eric> just steaming
06:47:57 <Eric> 95% humidity and 17 degrees :-D
06:48:12 <Kat> ?? going to see - I can change entry
06:48:33 <Eric> https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/mammoth4.jpg?1557492501406
06:48:59 <Kat> Love it!
06:49:13 <Eric> Now elk blocking cars :-P https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/mammoth4.jpg?1557492518140
06:49:24 <Joe> https://imgur.com/a/zIhfB9C
06:49:38 <Eric> People are still waiting
06:49:58 <Eric> ohh, that is IE :-P
06:50:22 <Joe> oF on static minutes ago https://imgur.com/a/zIhfB9C
06:50:32 <Kat> The static is about 3 minutes begind time right?
06:50:39 <Eric> ahead
06:50:40 <Kat> behind*
06:50:47 <Kat> Right!
06:51:01 <Eric> 3-4 depending on where you catch it in the cycle
06:52:09 <Eric> I bet nobody knows the username/password for that camera is why they cannot adjust the time
06:52:16 <Kat> Probably a long but can't say for sure since didn't catch start time
06:52:21 <ynpvisitor102> Time stamp on static camera is 4 to 5 minutes fast
06:53:32 <ynpvisitor102> Last OF was 0643 long
06:53:32 <Kat> Thanks
06:53:36 <Eric> Hey Joe, you know you can just scroll back to the history on the OF static and then click on it to get a shareable link
06:53:43 <Joe> The 0528 must have been another short
06:54:02 <Eric> Thanks 102
06:54:27 <Joe> Yes that is what I posted If that is what you mean
06:55:19 <Joe> trying to see how it works https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05102019/222.jpg
06:56:00 <Joe> Thanks Eric that saves Posting on Imgur :)
06:58:14 <Kat> Where do you go to look at the static history
06:59:15 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
06:59:26 <Kat> Hi Dave
06:59:47 <Cooper> Good morning Dave, and everyine
07:00:03 <Kat> Hi Cooper
07:00:31 <GO NYC> hi Art, congrats on game 1 .. hope it keeps going well
07:03:30 <Art> First 4 minutes were exciting then the next 30 were a bit stressful
07:03:37 <Art> But then things really opened up in the 3rd ;)
07:03:54 <Art> Pretty tired though 8PM start on a school night....
07:04:08 <Joe> Kat point at the static image, press CTRL key scroll slowly back the images will show minute by minute
07:04:22 <Kat> Thanks Joe
07:04:42 <GO NYC> yeah thats a late start for East coast. at least my opera started at 6. Didnt get out till 11:30 tho
07:05:36 <Kat> Morning Graham!
07:06:02 <Art> yikes, yeah I got home around 1:00am as the Garden is in the middle of the city and just a pain to get in/out of when driving
07:06:33 <Joe> DaveM found Grand!!
07:06:35 <GO NYC> yeah i am lucky, got to the hotel at 1135
07:07:02 <Joe> And the Castle start!!
07:07:07 <Kat> LC
07:07:20 <Art> Unfortunately if they do win the ECF, I don't think I'll be around for cup finals...
07:07:53 <Art> Never really plan for this when booking our trips to the park ;)
07:10:00 <Kat> Bubblers
07:10:02 <GO NYC> hum....wait at SB or go to West to watch the game
07:11:11 <Dave from B™> At least active cycles of Bruins in finals is more frequent than SB active phases
07:11:59 <Art> Wait at SB for sure
07:12:54 <GO NYC> maybe we should send Art to West while we stay at SB Dave?
07:13:43 <Dave from B™> Most gazers would prefer to send me away from the platform:)
07:13:43 <CraigC> Art, I heard you are the one to ask about spotting scopes. Is the Vortex Razor a good one? My sis is looking for one.
07:14:02 <Art> Vortex makes a very good affordable spotting scope
07:14:21 <GO NYC> you WILL see it this year Dave
07:14:38 <CraigC> Art, thanks
07:14:41 <Art> Oh if Dave is at SB then I'll be safe to goto West (joking)
07:15:04 <Dave from B™> I may be changing my tue-Wed trip next week to Mon-Tues...talking to the staff scheduler later today
07:15:09 <Joe> Art, no joke you will be safe
07:15:33 <GO NYC> I am giving Dave positive vibes since he will be in the park for part of my trip
07:15:36 <Art> CraigC, If money isn't a major factor and you plan on using it a bunch then the Swarovski ATX-95 is the best you can get
07:15:52 <Art> You can also rent Swarovski ATX-95 for I believe around 40-50 a day from Optics Yellowstone in Gardiner
07:16:05 <Joe> OK no more negatives for Dave
07:16:06 <Art> Depends again on how serious/frequently it's going to get used
07:16:53 <Dave from B™> I feel sorry for the park worker that has 305 hours without an eruption
07:16:58 <Eric> Morning Dave, Art, Craig & Graham
07:17:15 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
07:17:17 <CraigC> Art, my sis lives in West for the summer, they work at the Grizzly RV. Money is sort of an issue, but they want something good.
07:17:23 <ynpvisitor45> Maybe you should change your nick, Graham. To „GO DAVE“
07:17:30 <CraigC> hey Eric, how's it going
07:17:33 <Eric> I can see the future...Dave gets in the car and drives an hour on Monday morning....SB ie :-P
07:18:03 <GO NYC> watch ut Eric ... Dave will be in the park when you are
07:18:08 <Eric> Going good Craig...even though I woke up at 5am
07:18:18 <Dave from B™> I will put the curse on all of you
07:18:26 <GO NYC> noooo
07:18:39 <Eric> ouch, it hurts Dave
07:18:57 <Dave from B™> Geyser gods have enlisted me in trying to end Graham's good mojo of 2018/19
07:18:57 <Eric> But I don't think a curse is like a virus...it's not contagious
07:19:05 <CraigC> Eric, 4 am here.... ughhh
07:19:24 <Dave from B™> They say geysers need to be shared; not hogged by one person
07:19:30 <Eric> :-( Getting old sucks, but better than the alternative :-D
07:20:02 <GO NYC> thats not nice Dave ....... you dont wantme to root for SB the day before and after your trip do you?
07:20:44 <Dave from B™> I was actually hoping your mojo would rub off on me
07:21:16 <Art> CraigC, I'd suggest getting as much glass as you can afford
07:21:21 <GO NYC> i do like sharing geysers too .... watching F&M at night I usually will it not to erupt so peeps can see it ...... maybe after 2 nights that changes to Just Do It!
07:21:41 <Art> Especially in the park where the views tend to be best in Lamar and Hayden but far off
07:22:35 <CraigC> Art, thanks, I'll pass on the info on the ATX-90 so they can decide their budget
07:23:04 <Eric> Love that we can focus the camera now!
07:23:06 <Art> So Swarovski ATX-95 will set you back around 3-4k unfortunately
07:23:20 <Eric> West and South bubblers steaming
07:23:30 <Dave from B™> ouch
07:23:33 <Eric> Nice play in the cone
07:23:34 <CraigC> Art, on Amazon, there is one at 2000, but I am assuming that is no eyepiece
07:23:47 <Art> But a Vortex Razor 85 can be had for half that, sometimes less
07:23:56 <Art> Yeah Swarovski breaks it into two pieces
07:24:10 <Art> The "Objective Lens"
07:24:15 <Art> And the Eye Piece
07:24:25 <Art> So you can get either a straight or angled eye piece
07:24:38 <Art> and that works on the 65, 85 and 95 objective
07:25:04 <CraigC> yeah, since they are semi-retired, I doubt they will want to spend as much as the ATX
07:25:52 <CraigC> I had to make the same compromise on a lens, and go with a Tamron 600mm instead of a Nikkor
07:26:09 <Art> $1,599.99 for a new Vortex (27-60X - 85mm)
07:26:26 <Art> I have the Tamron instead of the Nikkor myself ;)
07:26:34 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:27:19 <Art> The good thing with the Swarovski is that its resale value is near retail price paid
07:27:27 <ynpvisitor113> I missed out on the dave graham spat.
07:28:37 <ynpvisitor113> Was going to sa after he retired 'old reliable' the delivery truck, his clown car will go into convulsions and SB will erupt when he would have been standing around with everyone.
07:37:46 <Joe> Bulger ie
07:38:14 <Dave from B™> I have turned my clown car over to Becca, its owner. I'm now driving Parker's 2007 Accord that his grandma gave to the family. 12 year old car with 46,000 miles.
07:39:19 <Rice> I can beat that, I drive a 96 Subarua outback with 80,000 miles
07:39:49 <Dave from B™> wow
07:40:15 <Rice> Working at a Feed Mill, I will not drive something nice and ruin it.
07:40:30 <Cooper> well I gotta go out to breakfast bye all
07:40:36 <Dave from B™> bye Cooper
07:40:47 <Kat> Bye Cooper
07:40:57 <Dave from B™> Makes sense, Rice
07:41:04 <Rice> Blood Meal dust likes to stick to paint!
07:42:38 <Rice> Dave, does your family tell you your car smells like work?
07:43:38 <Dave from B™> not since I quit picking up fish in it at the airport about 3 years ago
07:44:50 <Joe> AL ie
07:45:15 <Rice> My dog goes nuts when I get home everday. If I wear my boots from the mill home, she will lick them.
07:45:36 <CraigC> at least she doesn't chew them up... :(
07:46:43 <Rice> Morning Kevin, I have a travel question for you.
07:46:58 <CraigC> hey Kevin
07:47:36 <Kat> Hi Kevin
07:48:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning.
07:48:17 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:51:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a train ran over a ped in Flagstaff this morning. Don't understand why people ignore all those lights and gates.
07:51:52 <Kat> Awful!
07:52:18 <Dave from B™> Its called alcohol/drugs
07:53:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Mostly impatience.
07:53:14 <Kat> Was going to say the same thing Dave..
07:54:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Train vs car is the same ratio as car vs coke can.
07:57:09 <ynpvisitor11> https://www.nps.gov/webcams-yell/mammoth4.jpg?1557496572075
07:57:34 <ynpvisitor32> Car vs bicycle. Never understood why bile riders think they can win an argument over right-of-way with a car. Stop signs/lights, not for me, only big cars.
07:58:17 <Dave from B™> South Entrance road opens today
07:58:24 <ynpvisitor11> How can cracks occur?
07:58:52 <Kat> Had a entry flagged and deleted, no notification so I don't know what it was. Way to find out? Just curious :)
08:00:02 <Dave from B™> 11, happens in my parking lot all the time
08:00:05 <ynpvisitor32> Was it the early Daisy the other day (focus fix day)? Or not yours.
08:00:33 <Dave from B™> Kat, click on any entry you made and click on your name and it will show recently deleted
08:00:53 <Rice> Kevin, How much do you know about the roads to Death Valley from Las Vegas.
08:00:56 <Kat> Thanks, try that!
08:01:08 <CraigC> ynpvisitor32, I agree.... riding a bike among distracted drivers is stupid
08:02:06 <Kat> doggie back
08:02:20 <ynpvisitor81> ynpvisitor11, You smoking some crack?
08:02:29 <CraigC> if I ride my bike from my house to the trails, I ride against traffic and go off into brush when cars are coming
08:02:49 <Joe> not sure of way to find out, but I think it was your 2014 OF long, it was actually short
08:03:16 <ynpvisitor32> I was thinking of the distracted bike riders, but goes both ways. What makes me think that way is Oregon has a drivers manual for bikes. The old one used to have on the list of what to do if you are in a accident, Call a Lawyer.
08:03:50 <ynpvisitor32> Was not on the list for car drivers.
08:04:25 <ynpvisitor32> Time to go, enjoy BH and the kitties.
08:04:52 <Kevin L™🌵> US 95 isn't too bad Rice. There are a couple of smaller ones that go from Lathrop Wells and Beatty to the park that are not bad either.
08:06:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum?
08:07:01 <Joe> YES
08:07:05 <Bill> Morning
08:07:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it
08:07:19 <Kat> :)
08:07:21 <Rice> Bella Vista Rd, going out of Pahrump, looks like a back road. Would that be ok for van pulling pop up camper?
08:07:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Confirmed in basin.
08:12:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I think you should be fine on that road Rice. Looks like it was probably done on the old Tonopah & Tidewater Railroad bed. You can even catch an opera at Death Valley Junction.
08:14:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Be sure to take extra water. Temps are high, probably little to no cell service, and a long way between anything.
08:14:31 <Rice> Thanks, Nice to have first had knowledge, instead of trusting a GPS.
08:15:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Also don't pull off the asphalt unless you have checked the shoulder. Areas there you will sink big time.
08:16:28 <Rice> Ohhh, Good point
08:16:30 <Kevin L™🌵> GPS will get you in trouble out there. Good paper maps are the best.
08:16:33 <Eric> steaming hole in front of BW?!
08:16:40 <Eric> Never noticed that before
08:17:03 <Eric> I dub it Eric's Steaming Hole!
08:17:20 <Joe> I have seen that off and on in this view
08:17:27 <Kat> ?? Never noticed either
08:17:32 <Eric> 2 steaming holes now
08:17:40 <Kat> wow
08:17:50 <Kat> 3
08:18:04 <Joe> There will be a third it shows sometimes
08:18:25 <Kat> I see 3
08:18:31 <Rice> I always have paper maps, and know where I am going, GPS helps fill in those times, when it is crap I missed that turn, how do I get back!
08:18:35 <Joe> Yes 3 now
08:19:54 <Joe> UNSH-EZ- 1-2-3
08:20:28 <Joe> How is that Eric :)
08:21:56 <Dave from B™> :D
08:22:37 <CraigC> Ryan commented on the steam vents that are lined up the side of Split Cone... some mornings you see several of them there
08:23:36 <CraigC> but "Eric's Steaming Hole" seems like a fitting tribute
08:23:52 <CraigC> OF
08:24:14 <Joe> Its all in the designation above :)
08:24:15 <ynpvisitor41> no thermal features named for people. And named for body parts isn't a good idea either
08:24:30 <Kat> LOL
08:24:40 <Dave from B™> :D
08:24:49 <CraigC> is it ok if we joke with names, though?
08:24:59 <ynpvisitor7> how do i force quit my alias on here?
08:25:06 <ynpvisitor7> Can't sign back in as Bill
08:26:10 <ynpvisitor39> Tag something onto to end
08:26:37 <Joe> Yep
08:27:08 <Bill.> Gotcha
08:28:00 <ynpvisitor3> no jokes, this is serious business
08:29:00 <Dave from B™> Eric can't be "snuck" in like Daisy
08:30:37 <Joe> Bill after ~5min you will be able to change to Bill again
08:30:39 <Dave from B™> But, it seems a name works if its after an entire basin or a group of features (Norris GB, Washburn Hot Springs)
08:31:02 <ynpvisitor3> the joke's on them, I named my kid Bulger
08:31:11 <Dave from B™> haha
08:31:23 <Dave from B™> 3, that's usually a nickname
08:32:10 <Joe> I've been refered to as Spasmodic :)
08:33:24 <CraigC> LMAO
08:33:41 <ynpvisitor39> Doggie
08:40:11 <Jeff in CT> Morning all
08:40:27 <Joe> Hi Jeff
08:41:09 <Cooper> Hi Jeff
08:41:52 <Jeff in CT> Supposed to be working today, will try not to get too distracted...
08:42:00 <Kat> LC
08:42:21 <Dave from B™> Craig Pass is open
08:42:38 <Dave from B™> Udo is up early
08:43:28 <Joe> Yes he caught the 806 Aurum
08:43:52 <Dave from B™> He lives in West. He must have had insomnia as well
08:46:27 <Joe> He is probably making his way to Grand
08:47:04 <Joe> at LC a few min ago
08:48:07 <Dave from B™> Probably so and then back to Lion group; one of his favorite spots
08:49:39 <Dave from B™> Have to get your UGB or LGB viewing in before Pile of Dirt window opens again
08:50:37 <Joe> POD watching consumes much time :)
08:51:04 <Eric> Are there any really good trail maps of Yellowstone? With backcountry thermals on them?
08:52:01 <CraigC> aren;t there apps that can choose USGS or other sources
08:52:25 <Eric> Not much dirt left up at Norris...most of it has been carved out by SB runoff
08:52:27 <CraigC> Backcountry Navigator?
08:52:33 <Joe> I think I have seen some for sale in the VEC Yellowstone Forever area
08:52:51 <Eric> Most of them don't have back country thermals on them
08:53:17 <Eric> I assume these kinds of maps are somewhat exclusive like caver maps
08:53:31 <Eric> To keep dimwits out of the areas.
08:54:38 <CraigC> Backcounrty Nav has 16 topo maps to choose from.... where to start
08:55:05 <Kat> Are bikes allowed on the bw?
08:55:34 <Joe> No, only haandicap types
08:55:40 <Eric> interesting...that app creator is only a few miles from my home :-D
08:56:51 <Kat> Joe, can't find any flags notes ...
08:57:54 <Joe> I think it got deleted, DaveM has a entry in its place
08:58:45 <Dave from B™> ERic, Rocco has a "book" or manuscript detailing backcountry thermal areas
08:59:00 <Kat> OK
08:59:03 <Joe> 2014 OF yesterday, you posted it as a long
08:59:25 <Joe> it was short
09:00:42 <Joe> I saw his flag, someone must have come along and double flagged it
09:02:42 <Joe> UDO just posted lion Ini
09:02:55 <Jeff in CT> Udo caught Lion for us
09:03:39 <Kat> Yeah!
09:04:11 <Jeff in CT> I've got the spinning circle of death on the webcam
09:05:05 <Joe> Mine is still up
09:07:06 <Jeff in CT> Maybe my local internet connection, lot's of heavy downloads around here sometimes
09:08:22 <Kat> Thanks Joe
09:09:12 <Dave from B™> here's the link for Rocco's report. I need to add this to my collection
09:09:14 <Dave from B™> https://gosa.org/store/?product=report-on-lesser-known-thermal-features-of-yellowstone-national-park-part-2-1981-1985
09:10:22 <Eric> Thanks Dave
09:11:05 <Eric> Currently I use Gaiagps app for all my hiking navigation It has many layers of maps including usgs topos and gaia enhanced topos
09:11:14 <Kat> Lots of folks watching them
09:11:29 <Eric> You can also select an area and have it download all of the detailed topos to your phone for offline navigation.
09:11:46 <Eric> But for download you need a subscription
09:11:48 <Art> Griz between Myriad and Castle?
09:11:59 <Kat> Ranger
09:12:00 <Jeff in CT> Looks like Park Police are on it
09:12:08 <Art> people walking out towards them
09:12:32 <Eric> There is a grizz over there?
09:12:34 <Art> ?
09:12:44 <Art> Saw folks heading off toward the left of castle in meadow
09:12:49 <Jake> that's the NPS service truck
09:12:51 <Eric> Can we spin toward myriad?
09:12:58 <CraigC> and we arent watching it?
09:13:04 <Eric> poop patrol
09:13:13 <Jeff in CT> Or, maybe not. Had a close encounter with similar up in Banff years ago
09:13:38 <Eric> Where did you hear that Art?
09:13:53 <Art> https://geysertimes.org/note.php?id=11197
09:13:59 <Art> Griz sow with last years cub in trees between Castle and Myriad.
09:14:08 <Eric> ohhh
09:14:14 <CraigC> wowow
09:14:36 <Art> And just saw two ranger looking folks go (camera left) from castle off trail towards the trees
09:14:39 <Art> yup this view
09:14:45 <Jake> all but 1 grizzly I've seen in the UGB was in that area
09:14:49 <Art> That triange between castle and ham
09:14:54 <Jake> I'm sure it's closer to Castle than Myriad
09:14:57 <Eric> popo are there
09:15:02 <ynpvisitor5> Bears watching >(
09:15:04 <Dave from B™> Yep...popular area for bears
09:15:14 <Eric> They are leaving now
09:15:19 <Kat> moving out
09:15:21 <Art> Griz + cubs = super danger
09:15:26 <CraigC> dang
09:16:14 <Jake> there's the popo and the poopoo patrols?
09:16:15 <Eric> Maybe false alarm? I would think enforcement would stick around if grizz was still in the area
09:16:21 <Eric> Yep
09:16:24 <Kat> Me too
09:16:32 <Jake> or it's moving out towards Black Sand Basin
09:16:41 <Art> yeah they close the trail for a shifty looking Bison ;)
09:16:56 <Eric> Yep...and even just grazing bison
09:17:00 <Dave from B™> They might be headed to the main road
09:17:03 <Jeff in CT> Probably just Yogi and Booboo
09:17:13 <Eric> They should add pink bunny ears to the mean bison
09:17:29 <20 Mule Team Bo> argh
09:17:50 <Art> 20 Mule Team Borax? lol...
09:17:58 <20MuleTeamBoron> yup
09:18:06 <CraigC> LOL
09:18:13 <20MuleTeamBoron> actually compose of sodium tetraborate!
09:18:28 <Kat> Grand
09:18:34 <Art> Was there like a competing product that has less mules they were trying to 1 up?
09:18:38 <CraigC> Boron was the exciting new fly rod material.... for about ONE year
09:18:42 <Eric> booooom
09:19:42 <Jeff in CT> Maybe there was 19 Mule Team + 1 Donkey Borax back in the day :D
09:20:05 <CraigC> looks like RL Winston uses some boron in their fly rods
09:20:42 <Jake> this just in: there are no donkey or mule emoji in the unicode standard
09:21:17 <Jake> and even if there were, you're limited to 15 name characters here so you couldn't make a full borax team
09:21:43 <Art> Thats just sad
09:21:49 <Jeff in CT> Thanks Jake, my day is ruined. But, there is always Llamas
09:22:00 <Joe> e should see Riverside soon in this view
09:22:00 <WY> :grand:
09:22:13 <Art> Maybe if we had two different users with 10 mules each
09:22:46 <Jeff in CT> Neighbor down the street has 5 donkeys, does that count?
09:22:48 <Jake> log in with 2 browsers
09:23:24 <Jeff in CT> Udo is at Grand, probably covered in all of that mist
09:24:02 <Art🐎🐎🐎> We're half way there ;)
09:24:09 <ynpvisitor99> Grotto ie?
09:24:20 <Jeff in CT> Art, how do you get the emoji to appear?
09:24:40 <Art🐎🐎🐎> I just copied the unicode character and pasted
09:24:57 <Art🐎🐎🐎> Google Unicode and what you're looking for?
09:25:10 <CraigC> hey
09:25:13 <CraigC> .
09:25:14 <CraigC> .
09:25:14 <CraigC> .
09:25:18 <CraigC> what is it
09:25:30 <CraigC> bears????
09:25:38 <Joe> Bear
09:25:38 <Art🐎🐎🐎> Looks like it
09:25:41 <Joe> .
09:25:45 <Art🐎🐎🐎> yup
09:25:48 <Art🐎🐎🐎> And COY
09:25:49 <CraigC> look at that cub
09:25:52 <Joe> zoom
09:25:58 <Jeff in CT> U+1F43B
09:26:08 <Art> Can we zoom in on boardwalk?
09:26:09 <Jake> nice, I'm on delay
09:26:11 <Eric> where?
09:26:17 <Art> Dead center frame!
09:26:18 <Eric> ohhh, on BW
09:26:18 <CraigC> at Grand
09:26:18 <Jake> cub ran ahead of mama at Sawmill
09:26:22 <Art> Griz and cubs
09:26:23 <CraigC> by spasmodic
09:26:26 <Eric> someone should call VEC
09:26:33 <Joe> just below grand
09:26:37 <Art> Going out of sight
09:26:44 <Joe> Zoom please
09:26:45 <Eric> Just trucking along on the BW at spasmodic!
09:26:45 <Jake> they heard the Grand call
09:26:49 <Art> Too late
09:26:51 <Eric> Wish we had a camop with zoom
09:26:54 <WY> i am going to norris today
09:27:13 <Art> Someone should warn Udo
09:27:13 <Eric> Heading into woods now
09:27:20 <Joe> there it goes
09:27:31 <Jake> people at Grand see them
09:27:39 <Joe> into trees
09:28:17 <Jake> they must have used the bridge
09:28:21 <Jeff in CT> :1F43B:
09:28:22 <Jake> probably cubby's choice
09:28:23 <Joe> I've got it recorded but they are small from here
09:28:35 <CraigC> the cub was hauling butt, thought it was a coyote at first
09:28:36 <Art> That was pretty cool
09:28:38 <Eric> I posted on GT so Udo would see
09:29:09 <Eric> Hopefully a little cautious heading back to the hill from grand
09:29:25 <Jake> the other bears near Castle that I've seen have all crossed the big meadow and forded the river closer to Lion
09:29:25 <Eric> Really surprised LE didn't stick around
09:29:36 <Art> I'm always super nervous when walking between Grand/Lion at night
09:29:41 <Eric> These just took the bridge :-P
09:29:53 <Art> Having loud conversations with myself
09:29:58 <Eric> I am nervous there during the day Art :-P
09:30:06 <20MuleTeamBoron> Thanks for recording Joe - I missed it, waiting for the replay
09:30:21 <Art> Thankfully the park installed super loud/slappy boards
09:30:27 <Eric> Wish we had cam zoom...but still super cool
09:30:38 <Art> Now with more protruding nails
09:30:43 <Jake> slappy boards: a feature, not a bug
09:31:03 <Dave from B™> dang I missid the bears
09:31:04 <Joe> Nice catch Craig, I was having a time figuring what the HEY ding was but finaly caught it :)
09:31:14 <WY> grand is done
09:31:21 <CraigC> Joe, I didn't know what it was at first
09:31:33 <Eric> haha...I am going to call them Ranger Art's Slappy Board™
09:32:16 <Art> LOL, I went and bought some new pants yesterday since I'm down to just Ranger colors
09:32:29 <CraigC> bison
09:32:40 <Art> Ripped my last pair of non-ranger colored ones on the chicken coops :(
09:32:41 <CraigC> not as exciting
09:32:53 <Jake> someone will see those bears again today either by Solitary/Observation Point/Geyser Hill or out at Riverside/Artemisia
09:33:01 <Joe> With Bears you may need a few new pairs, Art
09:33:06 <Jake> Riverside ie
09:33:24 <LindaGt> Did I miss a bear?
09:33:35 <Eric> Yep and cub at spasmodic on BW
09:33:36 <WY> that bison is sleeping shhh! do not wake it!
09:33:36 <Joe> yes
09:33:50 <LindaGt> Bummer
09:34:05 <Eric> WC broken
09:34:16 <Eric> new camop?
09:34:24 <WY> event non-geyser related
09:34:31 <LindaGt> Nope
09:34:38 <Kat> No Eric, it's Kat. Sorry - had yo answer the door. Took longer than expected!
09:34:41 <WY> riverside
09:34:49 <Eric> ohhh bummer
09:35:03 <Art> Cam back up
09:35:06 <Eric> Just wondering if switch camop caused the camera restart
09:35:45 <LindaGt> Joe, guess I'll ha e to watch GOSA rerun
09:36:03 <WY> riverside erupted 40 mins before window opened
09:36:28 <Kat> Cam went out on me too.
09:36:31 <CraigC> froze
09:36:35 <Eric> No idea why NPS has that prediction
09:36:36 <GO NYC> did imiss anythign?
09:36:45 <CraigC> grizzlies
09:36:52 <WY> riverside
09:36:53 <Kat> Yes Craig - froze
09:37:04 <Art> Griz w/cub came up by Sawmill and into wood by Spaz
09:37:14 <Eric> cam back
09:37:18 <Joe> Cub Bear appeared 0924 From left followed by (mom)
09:37:54 <Kat> Keeps freezing on me..
09:37:58 <CraigC> 09:24 "hey" LOL
09:38:32 <WY> me too
09:38:37 <Joe> went between Grand and trees then out to right
09:38:37 <GO NYC> nice. did they eat anyone? there was a ear in the opera last night, along with dragon
09:38:49 <LindaGt> Circle of death here
09:38:55 <Eric> back
09:39:00 <GO NYC> a bear ...... so now i want the Dragon on OF webcam
09:39:17 <Eric> Dragons aren't real Graham
09:39:26 <Eric> You have seen too many operas :-P
09:39:32 <GO NYC> Dragon is on GH ... so make it erupt
09:39:33 <Kat> :)
09:40:04 <LindaGt> Throw the ear in
09:40:28 <GO NYC> i have seen bears in more parks than opera ... although at least 3 in operas that I can think of
09:43:39 <Kat> Back to losing cam and signing in each time.
09:43:54 <LindaGt> I hate that
09:44:11 <Kat> :-/
09:44:22 <WY> i am going to west thumb GB after OF
09:45:19 <Joe> Thanks Craig I looked on my recording and the cub came in on left circled around a bit then ran to the right then (mom) appeared, it was fun
09:45:53 <ynpvisitor85> Did the bears see Grand?
09:46:18 <Joe> They did not care :)
09:46:51 <ynpvisitor112> Too busy doing what bears do in the woods?
09:46:56 <LindaGt> Just a day in the life of a grizzly
09:47:07 <Kat> Or Bison!
09:47:33 <ynpvisitor85> Sure they do, when the people stand up to watch, they sneak in behind them and swipe picinick baskets.
09:47:33 <WY> OF window opens now
09:47:57 <ynpvisitor85> That Bison is waiting for OF.
09:48:12 <Joe> The cub was fast racing around, mom just plodded along
09:48:32 <CraigC> Kevin would be so jealous.... I just heard the Big Boy whistle from my garage
09:48:34 <Jake> oh, Artemisia
09:48:52 <Joe> nice
09:49:20 <CraigC> well, the Big Boy was not in my garage... just to clarify
09:49:25 <Joe> froze again
09:49:46 <ynpvisitor85> of again.
09:50:56 <Jake> I just moved the settings section of chat up so I can click the stream refresh button more easily
09:51:14 <CraigC> Jake, good idea
09:52:04 <CraigC> off for a mtn bike ride, bbl
09:52:14 <Kat> Have fun!
09:54:04 <Dave from B™> CraigC, have fun chasing the Big Boy
09:55:44 <LindaGt> Shooting for 900 posts today. The say it's good to have goals 😏

10:23:49 <Joe1> cub comes in left above river followed by mom then leaves on right https://youtu.be/oyJwcVrNQfs
10:24:47 <Joe> Bear in link above
10:26:23 <Betty> thx Joe!!
10:26:35 <Kat> Thanks for that Joe!
10:26:44 <Joe> yw, too bad no zoom
10:27:02 <Joe> But it was fun!
10:27:08 <LindaGp> Wow inguess you were just watching grand. Neat.
10:27:42 <ynpvisitor99> Nice vid capture. Thanks Joe!
10:27:52 <Joe> CraigC spotted it and alerted us!
10:27:58 <Kat> No, I stepped away to answer the door - my fault!
10:28:20 <Joe> No problem we saw it!
10:30:35 <Eric> Very cool Joe...thanks for recording/sharing
10:31:03 <Eric> Cam down
10:31:11 <Joe> I wish there was somewhere here to put the link so others when they come on chat could see it
10:31:17 <Betty> bah, we will miss Lion
10:31:22 <ynpvisitor99> Joe what are you using to record the stream?
10:31:27 <Eric> Agree Joe
10:31:39 <LindaGp> Up
10:31:40 <Eric> We need a wiki for this page
10:31:54 <ynpvisitor99> Eric its in the archive. Or you could post a link to GT?
10:31:59 <Joe> I use FFMPEG
10:32:07 <Dave from B™> Joe, thanks for the link. That cub was moving
10:32:17 <Eric> Yes, but unless you know to look for it...you don't really see it
10:32:19 <Eric> IMHO
10:32:40 <Betty> I thin you can attach to Erics event non-geyser reladted
10:33:13 <LindaGp> Hung up
10:33:21 <Jeff in CT> What does this mean, "OF Webcam is TROUBLED" - some sort of emotional issues?
10:33:28 <Joe> Craig posted HRY then dinged a few times, It took a minute to realize what he saw
10:33:38 <Joe> HEY
10:33:54 <Eric> Yes, the Webcam is emotionally unstable
10:34:16 <LindaGp> Up
10:34:17 <Betty> works here
10:34:58 <LindaGp> It did, sigh
10:35:43 <Eric> Joe, I attached your video to the Note from earlier
10:35:51 <Betty> back
10:35:53 <LindaGp> Up again
10:36:10 <Joe> Thanks Eric
10:36:16 <20MuleTeamBoron> Thanks Joe - that was unbearlievable
10:36:25 <Betty> lol
10:36:30 <Joe> :)
10:36:33 <Eric> I added the Webcam status so people can hopefully tell the difference between their internet having trouble and the cam actually having trouble
10:36:55 <LindaGp> Eric, it's well tested
10:37:02 <Eric> uggg, yes it is
10:37:19 <ynpvisitor24> tks Joe, great vid!
10:37:21 <Eric> I am going to have it start calling the VEC automatically every times is down :-P
10:37:29 <Dave from B™> How would you like to have been at Spasmodic and see that cub headed straight for you?
10:37:47 <Eric> That would have been scary Dave
10:38:16 <Eric> The momma was moving pretty darn fast too at some points
10:38:19 <LindaGp> Stream runs for few seconds and then stops, over and over
10:38:26 <Dave from B™> I'd have headed to Grand and a crowd
10:38:29 <Eric> It's tired
10:38:44 <Eric> It's like me running
10:39:01 <LindaGp> Up
10:39:41 <Joe> This is what the cam did when the power supply failed :(
10:39:49 <Eric> down
10:40:01 <Eric> I don't think this is a power supply issue
10:40:23 <Eric> This happened when we had the cam on the tree at first too
10:40:43 <Jeff in CT> Either Lion is late, or we missed it
10:40:44 <Eric> They finally got the settings dialed in and it stopped doing this
10:42:01 <Joe> most likley not the P.S> issue I get a few minutes recorded then dropout, over and over
10:42:29 <Joe> up now
10:42:35 <Dave from B™> I'm at 98ms
10:43:21 <Joe> down again
10:44:50 <LindaGp> Didn't get a chance to type up, before it went down
10:45:32 <LindaGp> .up
10:45:55 <LindaGp> Give me a break, same thing as soon as I typed it was down
10:51:58 <Joe> There has probably been a lot of law enforcement radio transmissions this morning because of bears...could this be the result of radio interference with the radio link for the cam?
10:54:06 <Eric> I hope not, or we are in for a summer of no cam
10:54:38 <LindaGp> I sent an email about cam
10:54:56 <LindaGp> Up
10:55:45 <LindaGp> I give up
10:56:26 <Eric> Just coated my backpack, butt seat and a long sleeve sun shirt in sawyer tick/mosquito repellent.
10:56:38 <LindaGp> I'll let you know if it stays up longer than 2 minutes 🙄
10:57:24 <Joe> Eric, how long does that last?
10:57:35 <Eric> I have heard nothing but good stuff about using it on your gear, so I hope I have less ticks/bugs this spring
10:57:47 <20MuleTeamBoron> Hey train aficionados, the Bing picture today is of Steamtown, Scranton PA
10:57:52 <Eric> up to 8 wash cycles Joe
10:58:03 <Joe> Thanks, I look for some
10:58:04 <Eric> So if you aren't washing it, the coating can last a long time
10:58:17 <Eric> you can get it on amazon for fairly reasonable price
10:58:40 <Eric> We are having a horrible tick season already in the eastern part of the Columbia River gorge
10:58:49 <Dave from B™> Mosquitoes don't really like me
10:58:53 <Eric> I don't want those little suckers leaching off me
10:59:16 <Eric> Dave you opened yourself up there for many one liners :-P
10:59:39 <Joe> :)
10:59:48 <LindaGp> Eric, I've had lyme for six years, you really don't want them
11:00:10 <Eric> Ugg, exactly Linda...I am sorry to hear that...lyme disease sucks
11:00:17 <Dave from B™> yep...thanks for laying off it, ERic:)
11:00:36 <LindaGp> Sucks big time
11:01:05 <Eric> The problem is you don't really know you have it until it is too late to treat easily
11:01:32 <20MuleTeamBoron> Unless you get Bell's Palsy (my daughter did)
11:01:32 <Eric> While we have very little lyme disease around here, I want to minimize risk
11:01:38 <Art> Cam back up here
11:01:47 <LindaGp> Yeah and it protect itself from antibiotics becoming resistent
11:02:04 <Art> Eric, we live in the land of Lyme disease out here, you'll get a bullseye in most cases on the site
11:02:07 <Betty> hi Mara
11:02:09 <LindaGp> Cam Is up not sure how long
11:02:22 <Art> Almost all dogs test positive for it here
11:02:35 <Mara> hullo Betty
11:02:44 <Eric> Yes, I have heard that Art...but also the "in most cases" part is the issue
11:02:49 <Mara> I'm definitely not here because I should be writing a term project... nope...
11:02:49 <LindaGp> I never had a bullseye and tri state area out here is a hot bed for the little buggers
11:02:52 <Eric> Hi Mara
11:03:12 <Eric> hahaha :-D
11:03:45 <LindaGp> I have them in my yard, don't have to go very far
11:03:45 <Mara> hey Eric; saw the photos from your mountain hike... I am jealous
11:04:45 <LindaGp> Bubblers
11:04:54 <Betty> nice view
11:05:13 <Eric> Well, if you are ever in the PDX area and want to hike, yell :-D
11:05:21 <LindaGp> Nice splashes
11:05:24 <Eric> BH
11:05:25 <Kat> Splash Splash
11:05:30 <Betty> whooooo
11:05:35 <Dave from B™> wow...it has to go now
11:05:38 <Eric> or not...wow
11:05:48 <Eric> BH now
11:05:51 <Eric> nope
11:05:55 <Art> Geeze
11:05:56 <LindaGp> Bee
11:05:57 <Eric> BH
11:05:58 <Eric> !
11:06:00 <Eric> .
11:06:00 <Kat> Yep
11:06:00 <Eric> .
11:06:01 <Eric> .
11:06:04 <Art> .
11:06:12 <Eric> txt someone
11:06:21 <Eric> no indy
11:06:24 <Eric> still
11:06:38 <20MuleTeamBoron> no indy and lots of teasing
11:06:45 <Eric> Yes, weird start
11:06:49 <Betty> text is sent
11:06:55 <Art> Classic no indy start ;)
11:06:59 <Eric> Thanks txt'ers
11:07:01 <20MuleTeamBoron> great water action
11:07:06 <Art> Just like WHAT woh what is it doing, omg BH
11:07:24 <Casey> Shame on me for not coming to this site earlier. Thanks for the text.
11:07:39 <ynpvisitor64> Thanks for the text
11:07:44 <LindaGp> Yikes that went fast
11:07:47 <Eric> good wind direction today
11:07:58 <Dave from B™> A couple hugs splashes out of BH before it went. That was fun
11:08:04 <Dave from B™> huge*
11:08:06 <LindaGp> No Indy tiny bubbler
11:08:07 <Betty> that was an amazing closeupfor a no-indy BH
11:08:18 <Dave from B™> Yep...great job camop
11:08:26 <Eric> Yes, it was like water to 10ft....nope, not an eruption
11:08:36 <Art> indy
11:08:38 <Eric> indy
11:08:41 <Eric> :-D
11:08:52 <Dave from B™> That most always triggers an eruption
11:08:54 <Eric> and gone
11:09:06 <Lori S> Gorgeous
11:09:09 <20MuleTeamBoron> a little late to the party pal !
11:09:14 <LindaGp> There's Indy now
11:09:25 <LindaGp> Oops stopped
11:10:21 <Joe> Bears and Bees oh my!!
11:10:46 <Eric> Yes, good cam morning, other than the sucky cut-outs
11:10:52 <Betty> Joe, do you add "no indy" to BH?
11:10:55 <Eric> mothra!
11:11:03 <Mara> 10/10 would watch again
11:11:06 <Joe> I can
11:11:08 <Lori S> Thx for txt! Back to laundry
11:11:10 <Art> Guessing no one has seen a network diagram of how the cam is run?
11:11:24 <Eric> or doesn't run?
11:11:54 <Eric> network ==> broken ==> camera
11:12:03 <Eric> There ya go Art
11:12:10 <LindaGp> Froze
11:12:30 <Mara> with my brother now working for Xanterra IT I get annoyed texts when there are power issues, lol
11:12:48 <LindaGp> Back up
11:13:06 <Betty> :-)
11:13:19 <Joe> I added no indicator before eruption
11:13:31 <Betty> thx
11:13:33 <LindaGp> Wow can't believe cam came back up in times for that
11:14:09 <LindaGp> Froze
11:14:23 <Joe> we are partially blessed :)
11:14:28 <Art> If it really is wireless then I wonder what on earth would be interfering with 802.11 (2.4ghz or 5ghz)
11:14:29 <LindaGp> Gone
11:14:35 <ynpvisitor4> I guess Udo was wrong!
11:14:41 <Eric> 📷 ==> 🚫 ==> 🖧
11:15:05 <Eric> Everything interferes with 802.11!
11:15:25 <LindaGp> Back
11:15:25 <Eric> microwaves, radio dishes, ......
11:15:29 <Art> On the 2.4ghz spectrum but 5ghz isn't too crowded
11:15:33 <Eric> solar flares
11:15:55 <Mara> wait I seem to remember that most issues are Dave's fault sooooo isn't it more like network >>> Dave >>> broken >>> camera
11:16:00 <Eric> a lot of signals jam and bleed into the 5ghz too
11:16:16 <Eric> That is why you are the smart one in school!
11:16:22 <Eric> You are correct, Dave's fault
11:17:22 <Dave from B™> et tu, Mara?:)
11:17:29 <20MuleTeamBoron> Glad it worked during BH
11:17:51 <Mara> <3
11:17:52 <LindaGp> Up
11:18:21 <Jeff in CT> Went for lunch and missed all of the excitement
11:18:25 <LindaGp> Not
11:21:41 <LindaGp> Hehe cam is troubled, that's for sure
11:22:18 <Mara> poor thing is doing its best
11:22:54 <Dave from B™> Looks like the internet at home when Parker is home
11:23:34 <20MuleTeamBoron> streaming cams don't do this elsewhere - is bandwidth the real issue?
11:24:20 <LindaGp> Up
11:24:38 <LindaGp> For now
11:24:54 <LindaGp> Nice frozen.picture of bee erupting
11:25:16 <Mara> this is like watching High and Gold go in and out of lock
11:25:41 <LindaGp> By the time I type up, it freezes, yikes
11:26:15 <Dave from B™> Mara, when will you be in YNP next?
11:26:54 <Betty> belated HB, Mara, btw :-)
11:27:34 <Mara> thanks~
11:28:35 <Betty> hi Bill
11:28:47 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
11:29:13 <Bill> Heyya
11:29:19 <Mara> Well, our research permit got approved so I will be in probably two times this summer for that. Looooong Steamboat sits in my future.
11:30:05 <Eric> My daughter really want to do some water analysis on SB for a chemistry class too :-D
11:30:16 <LindaGp> Up
11:31:06 <Joe> and dowmn
11:31:10 <Eric> She has to do a 4000 word essay on a piece of research she creates for her IB EE
11:31:36 <Eric> She chose chemistry, but is having a hard time finding research that interests her
11:32:24 <Eric> Any suggestions for cool/interesting chemistry research that could be taken on by an advanced high school junior/senior?
11:32:38 <Eric> She has about 8 months to do the research I believe
11:32:46 <Eric> and analysis
11:33:01 <LindaGp> Up
11:33:31 <LindaGp> I not
11:33:42 <Mara> Depends on what tools she has access to.
11:34:36 <Eric> True, they have a decent chemistry lab at her school and she can possibly get extended lab time at the state eco department through contacts.
11:35:07 <Eric> or maybe even get someone at USGS CVO to lend her a hand/equipment?
11:35:15 <Eric> We are pretty close to CVO here
11:35:44 <Eric> Hmm, maybe a field trip to CVO might help her with ideas
11:35:57 <ynpvisitor116> I like Bill's suggestion yesterday. Figure out a way to get silica to release from car windows and paint. Then she will be rich and famous along with an A+ on her report
11:36:34 <Eric> Hmmm, if she had some good samples, she could probably work on a solution for that 116
11:36:57 <Mara> That would be possible! Something that might make a neat project would be sampling hot springs (Mickey's not horribly far away?) for major ion chemistry/silica content and then applying the various geothermometers to approximate the reservoir temperature.
11:37:01 <Eric> I wonder if she could simulate silica build up on glass?
11:37:38 <Eric> Mickey is far from everywhere :-P
11:37:48 <Eric> But might be possible
11:37:55 <Eric> OF
11:38:16 <LindaGp> It froze!!
11:38:41 <LindaGp> On static
11:41:13 <Eric> Back of ie
11:41:23 <Eric> or ne
11:42:21 <Mara> something else could be an in situ sinter precipitation experiment - let silica grow on thin slides in a runoff channel/near a pool, then look at the growth with SEM (USGS facilities might have this)
11:42:42 <Mara> logistical problems in making sure whatever agency protects the springs will allow you to do research, however
11:42:46 <Mara> I will think on it
11:43:05 <Jeff in CT> Don'
11:43:23 <Jeff in CT> Don't forget, dissolved solids content will vary strongly with temperature, and also with pH
11:45:23 <Mara> Yes... this will be a problem when we have to analyze our water samples taken far from the vent.
11:46:43 <LindaGp> Up
11:46:55 <Eric> Thanks Mara/Jeff
11:46:56 <LindaGp> Not
11:48:21 <Art> Amazing the difference having the other gates seems to have made today alone!!!
11:48:33 <Art> Boardwalks look so busy
11:49:28 <Jeff in CT> You may be able to learn something by comparing with scale formation in boilers, and maybe talking to someone familiar with hydrothermal geological systems
11:52:40 <Mara> I dunno if CVO has hydrothermal folks. Menlo certainly does.
11:55:30 <Jeff in CT> If you know what the conditions are below surface, temperature and pressure, you can reproduce them in the lab and get an idea how the dissolved solids behave during an eruption and cooldown. To bad I can't go back to college, sounds like fun
11:55:33 <Dave from B™> could be seeing more locals also as weather forecast is good for the weekend
11:57:38 <20MuleTeamBoron> Back when I was with the USGS (briefly), I knew some guys that did significant modeling of ground- and hydrothermal-water chemical reactions.
11:59:00 <LindaGp> Not making progress with cam, just keep refreshing
12:08:25 <Jake> I've thought there could be money in making tourist souvenirs that are coated in travertine like they used to make at Mammoth. Would need to identify an artificial solution, best temperatures and concentration of minerals, etc.
12:10:03 <Art> Has anyone heard how Rich Holstein is doing (Guy who pulled all the old flooring from the Inn and made them into furniture and picture frames, etc)
12:11:17 <Art> Last I heard he had a GofundMe for medical expenses (Yellowstone Tour Guides posted something about it a couple months back)
12:16:11 <Eric> Thanks again Mara and Jeff, I will pass along the info to my daughter, some of it was over my head, but she should get it...I hope :-D
12:19:04 <LindaGp> Ain't we got fun
12:22:02 <Jeff in CT> For coating souvenirs, maybe waterglass (cement floor sealer) or similar may work
12:29:37 <LindaGp> Up for 20 sec
12:40:39 <LindaGp> Quick look it's moving
12:40:49 <LindaGp> Uh you.mossed it
12:40:55 <LindaGp> Missed it
12:48:40 <Art> Glad to hear Ledge Spring is possibly active again
12:48:55 <Art> JSJ has a great YouTube video on it (among other amazing videos)
12:48:56 <Art> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_9OOpeSwvs
12:56:13 <LindaGp> I'm not even on camera, guess we should be thankful it came around for beehive. I will keep an eye on this in case it heals before end of my shift.
13:11:00 <CraigC> any more bear sightings?
13:11:41 <LindaGp> Cam has mostly been down since 10:00 mst
13:11:45 <Dave from B™> Not unless it's behind the big X
13:12:32 <CraigC> dang, sorry
13:12:46 <CraigC> did Joe do a video of the bears this morning?
13:13:23 <LindaGp> I'm staring at a frozen screen but I've advanced to being connected
13:13:35 <LindaGp> OF
13:13:57 <LindaGp> Maybe
13:14:00 <Eric> Yes craig, it's linked in GT under the non-geyser related entry
13:14:12 <CraigC> awesome, thanks
13:14:18 <Eric> yep OF ie
13:14:29 <LindaGp> Wow
13:14:31 <Eric> On both statics
13:15:41 <LindaGp> 😋
13:16:13 <Joe1> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyJwcVrNQfs Craig
13:16:35 <LindaGp> What a waste of the day
13:17:00 <ynpvisitor34> hey, mine just came back
13:17:37 <ynpvisitor34> behind the x, yet it is streaming
13:17:42 <ynpvisitor34> or was
13:17:55 <Joe> Craig are you still here?
13:18:00 <LindaGp> Doing funny things
13:18:53 <CraigC> Joe, thanks, I was watching it from the link that Eric did in GT. Thanks for making the video.... that was a cool event this morning
13:19:31 <Joe> Thanks for shouting HEY!
13:20:07 <CraigC> I'm still laughing that I couldn't come up with anything else
13:20:38 <Joe> It made me look to see what was happening :)
13:21:32 <ynpvisitor34> cam never zoomed in on bears though
13:21:46 <CraigC> I'll be back, I need to go hook up the pressure washer and get all the mud off of my bike. Ran into some friends up on the trail and they talked me into following them down a less dry trail.
13:22:18 <Joe> Cya later
13:22:33 <ynpvisitor34> still very fun to see, that was very close to the people at Grand
13:26:59 <ynpvisitor56> I logged in to a circling ring expired and the cam went down as my inner rage grew higher
13:27:12 <ynpvisitor56> and it turns turns turns the ring expired, the ring expired
13:29:10 <LindaGp> They rebooted cam but don't think it made a difference
13:31:55 <Joe> another great country song for the cam :)
13:32:08 <Joe> thanks 56
13:38:13 <Betty> I want my Cash back
13:38:47 <Joe> The check is in the Mail :)
13:38:54 <Joe> Hi Betty
13:39:07 <Betty> hey Joe
13:39:44 <Joe> Very dead day for the cam
13:40:00 <LindaGp> Very dead indeed
13:41:48 <Joe> Linda, look at all the hours you are getting paid for and do not have to point :)
13:41:56 <ynpvisitorCC> PLease report to Dave Lind
13:42:20 <Joe> Hi CC
13:42:24 <ynpvisitorCC> Linda..please report to Dave
13:42:32 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Joe
13:42:44 <ynpvisitorCC> I havesent a report to dave
13:43:00 <ynpvisitorCC> Please do as well
13:43:07 <Joe> CC we did have Bears on cam this am
13:43:36 <ynpvisitorCC> I read but did not see
13:43:42 <LindaGp> I sent an email, they said they rebooted it around 3:16 and they had spotty contact with cam also
13:44:26 <Joe1> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyJwcVrNQfs Bears
13:44:27 <ynpvisitorCC> Looks like we are going to have issues with this placemaent
13:45:12 <LindaGp> Once I connect it streams for about 30 sec and then freezes and eventually lose cam. Then refresh and it hangs. When it co acts it starts all over again .
13:45:44 <Dave from B™> Might we see a third location for the cam this year?
13:46:05 <LindaGp> *connects
13:46:55 <ynpvisitorCC> Thanks Joe
13:46:56 <LindaGp> I just moved down basin with my 30 seconds 😉
13:47:18 <ynpvisitorCC> To bad we couldn't zoom in'
13:48:16 <ynpvisitorCC> Have to leave
13:48:52 <Joe> Bye CC
13:49:00 <LindaGp> Bye
13:51:45 <LindaGp> Streaming at moment
13:52:16 <LindaGp> Not
13:53:36 <LindaGp> Might want to refresh it came back so that's an improvement.
13:54:29 <LindaGp> If I remember the last time I had this problem around 14:00 or 15:00 It improved
13:58:03 <Joe> up for a moment
13:58:13 <LindaGp> Yea
13:58:30 <Joe> and down
13:58:42 <LindaGp> Yup
13:58:45 <Joe> boo
13:58:57 <LindaGp> Lost it
13:59:17 <LindaGp> Back
13:59:25 <LindaGp> Bug and all
14:01:07 <Dave from B™> I would sure like to know what NPS is thinking about this issue
14:01:49 <LindaGp> This is the worst in a while
14:02:26 <LindaGp> At least days 😉
14:07:37 <Joe> When the cam fails the in basin gazers seem to fail also, only two inbasin posts since about 11
14:08:13 <Joe> three crater and lakeshore
14:09:00 <LindaGp> Think they are sitting in their rooms watching from cam? lol
14:09:12 <Joe> and lakeshore is not in basin
14:09:45 <LindaGp> Quick look
14:09:57 <LindaGp> Uh not quick enough lol
14:10:11 <GO NYC> are there many gazers around yet?
14:10:16 <Joe> i saw people move
14:10:34 <LindaGp> 👍
14:10:48 <LindaGp> They are moving again
14:11:37 <GO NYC> probably waiting for warmer wether
14:12:16 <Joe> cold weather never slowed you down Graham :)
14:12:33 <LindaGp> Up
14:13:36 <LindaGp> For more than 30 sec
14:14:38 <LindaGp> It's on a roll
14:14:43 <Joe> I have hundreds of "a few seconds" recordings in my files today
14:15:26 <LindaGp> Refresh it streaming
14:15:47 <LindaGp> Joe, 😕
14:15:57 <Joe> i've got recording for now
14:16:26 <LindaGp> Something between 12 and four is I teetering I think, this happened once before
14:16:42 <LindaGp> *interfering
14:17:04 <LindaGp> My time
14:17:13 <Joe> teetering was good also :)
14:17:41 <LindaGp> 🙄
14:18:25 <Joe> I've got 5 minutes so far
14:18:59 <LindaGp> It was a geyser miracle that we saw beehive
14:19:21 <LindaGp> It's like it took control of the cam lol
14:20:15 <Joe> With one keystroke i just deleted hundreds of useless files
14:20:37 <Joe> I kept the "Bears" though
14:20:48 <LindaGp> That's good
14:21:12 <LindaGp> I'm afraid to zoom and get stuck
14:22:49 <Betty> LC
14:22:54 <Joe> Look at Grand please
14:23:17 <LindaGp> Yay it worked
14:24:51 <Joe> so far I'm counting good frames, no bobbles, we may be good for a while, (fingers cressed)
14:24:56 <CraigC> for those who don't do Facebook, here is my view on ym ride today; https://imgur.com/YmZe9Ct
14:25:14 <LindaGp> Yea it looks like it healed
14:25:23 <LindaGp> No it's frozen
14:25:30 <LindaGp> Joe broke it
14:25:48 <Joe> Yep no counts :(
14:26:09 <Joe> Nice view Craig
14:26:31 <CraigC> I had hoped to see a bear
14:26:36 <LindaGp> Fly just walked across
14:26:44 <Joe> going again
14:28:05 <Joe> boo
14:28:24 <LindaGp> Lost it
14:28:28 <Eric> Nice Ride Craig!
14:28:31 <LindaGp> Back
14:28:43 <Eric> not yet
14:28:50 <Eric> there we go
14:28:53 <LindaGp> For me
14:29:22 <Dave from B™> That looks too flat for ERic
14:29:48 <LindaGp> Needs a few exclamation points
14:30:10 <Eric> >(
14:31:16 <LindaGp> Woah
14:31:17 <Joe> that 'Skoolie" in the parking lot is what I need for YNP
14:31:45 <LindaGp> Ran across boardwalk

14:37:28 <LindaGp> Sorry
14:37:48 <Eric> Just looked at last 7 grands...no time travel required. Just GT :-D
14:38:04 <Eric> GT > Time Travel!
14:39:12 <Eric> I can't remember...do I need to call xanterra regular reservations or the cabin desk to request an upper level cabin?
14:39:17 <Joe> I was surprised by that Grand, But CC saw it also and it is recorded in archives
14:39:32 <Eric> Very nice

14:56:09 <LindaGp> That was a huge prepay burst
14:56:18 <Cooper> yeah
14:56:30 <LindaGp> *Preplay
14:58:05 <Cooper> its gone quiet
14:58:48 <LindaGp> There it is

15:08:16 <LindaGp> Froze
15:08:23 <Cooper> it started at 15:04:35 via in basin
15:08:26 <LindaGp> You may never know

15:25:45 <LindaGp> Up
15:25:57 <LindaGp> Not
15:26:28 <LindaGp> End of my shift can't come too soon
15:27:37 <Eric> maybe just log out and close your browser
15:28:49 <LindaGp> I just did
15:29:06 <GO NYC> is it plugged in?
15:29:48 <GO NYC> time to hunt for some food and then watch another decapitation ..... see you
15:30:05 <LindaGp> 😋
15:30:23 <Joe> Bye Graham, enjoy
15:30:49 <ynpvisitor02> So any brave BH guesses for Wednesday?
15:31:27 <Jake> for May 15th?
15:32:12 <Joe> between midnight and 2359
15:32:38 <LindaGp> I'll go with 2358
15:32:50 <Joe> or 0001 - 2359
15:32:57 <LindaGp> Grand
15:33:04 <LindaGp> Quick look
15:33:12 <LindaGp> Froze
15:33:47 <LindaGp> On my screen its frozen but that's the start time
15:33:51 <Eric> I see no grand :-(
15:33:53 <Eric> there we go
15:33:55 <LindaGp> Working
15:34:10 <Eric> dang...off by about 30 seconds
15:34:35 <ynpvisitor13> So 00:31 then?
15:35:29 <LindaGp> Up
15:35:57 <LindaGp> I can see it but can't take control
15:36:34 <LindaGp> It just moved, Gary may have taken controls
15:36:46 <Eric> Probably want to shut down that tab then
15:37:04 <Eric> Seeing it in the control console sucks the bandwidth
15:37:26 <LindaGp> There it is
15:39:52 <LindaGp> Ok garybdefinitely has it. Thanks you Gary
15:40:06 <LindaGp> Have a good night
15:40:38 <ynpvisitor13> No better guess then that? I thought some of you were brave.
15:40:41 <Eric> 8m
15:41:31 <Eric> I guess tomorrow 13:36 +- 3.5h
15:41:45 <Eric> There ya go for BH
15:42:23 <Jake> I'll take 0900 - 1530 for May 15 Beehive
15:42:41 <Joe> They wanted next Wednesday
15:43:12 <Eric> ohhh, nevermind then
15:44:27 <Eric> come on second
15:44:44 <Eric> boooooo
15:45:04 <Eric> Thows rotten tomatoes!
15:45:09 <Eric> or throws them
15:51:11 <CraigC> why for next Wed?
15:51:44 <ynpvisitor13> Cause I do not want to see it on the cam that day.
15:53:08 <CraigC> I guess I missed out on a back story or something
15:53:25 <ynpvisitor13> I am hoping it will stay around mid day
15:53:42 <ynpvisitor13> Nope, just asked if anyone had a brave guess.
15:54:32 <Eric> bulger
15:55:02 <ynpvisitor13> Seems like a mid day BH next week, has better odds then the cam working for people not in the park.
15:55:11 <Eric> alright...well cam sucks, so I am out of here
15:55:22 <ynpvisitor13> Me so too.
15:55:23 <Eric> Have a good weekend all!
15:55:35 <CraigC> cya Eric
15:55:46 <ynpvisitor13> Thanks, Craig. We will know in a few days.
15:56:06 <CraigC> maybe I will be at BH on wed at 11:11
15:56:29 <CraigC> quite plausible, in fact
16:15:03 <WY> i just got back from norris
16:15:19 <WY> no steamboat
16:15:58 <kcmule> interval only at 2 days right?
16:16:13 <WY> yeah
16:16:31 <kcmule> spent 6 days last year and only got a whole bunch of whirligigs
16:16:44 <WY> last eruption was interval of 5 days
16:17:15 <kcmule> don't let me go again or I'll disturb the basin again
16:17:33 <WY> haha
16:18:27 <WY> i am out there in the crowd for OF
16:19:51 <WY> you might also see me walking to castle on the cam too
16:19:58 <kcmule> these are the size crowds I don't mind
16:20:18 <WY> i like bigger crowds
16:20:32 <WY> like the ones in the summer
16:20:43 <kcmule> at rock concerts maybe :)
16:20:54 <WY> wow
16:21:17 <WY> steamboat crowds are always tiny
16:21:51 <kcmule> meeting the nice folks there was the only thing that made my 2018 trip worthwhile
16:22:31 <WY> i met a guy who set up a chair and had some snacks
16:23:08 <WY> for steamboat
16:23:08 <kcmule> chair yes, snacks I had to stealth
16:24:23 <WY> he probably did not see it because steamboat erupted 5 days later at about 10 that night
16:25:01 <kcmule> for a hot geyser, sb sure can be cold sometimes..
16:25:16 <WY> :lol:
16:25:30 <WY> yes, it was cold to me too
16:26:11 <WY> it apparently erupted right after i left yellowstone last year
16:26:35 <kcmule> ugh
16:26:46 <WY> i know right?
16:27:11 <WY> Great Fountain ie
16:27:18 <kcmule> I caught a steam phase in 2000, might be the closest I ever get
16:27:27 <kcmule> can't make it to YNP this year :(
16:27:54 <WY> why not?
16:27:56 <kcmule> OF
16:28:27 <kcmule> going to another volcano, oahu next month
16:28:31 <kcmule> not to the big island tho
16:29:01 <WY> oh. Hope you have fun there at least:lol:
16:29:20 <WY> that OF was short
16:29:29 <kcmule> ty WY that is the plan :)
16:29:53 <WY> NPS window has not opened yet
16:30:34 <kcmule> short interval, not a short duration right?
16:30:48 <kcmule> i'm on a pretty long delay here
16:30:51 <WY> right
16:31:03 <kcmule> k
16:31:28 <WY> OF still going
16:31:43 <WY> now it is done
16:33:43 <WY> i am going to castle
16:33:57 <WY> right now. You might see me
16:35:02 <WY> lioness erupted 43ys ago
16:35:09 <WY> only once
16:35:29 <WY> lion is 7hrs ago
16:35:43 <WY> should erupt any second now

17:21:59 <Cooper> Hello again everybpdy
18:01:20 <kcmule> OF
18:08:56 <ynpvisitor96> :castle:
18:09:06 <ynpvisitor1> yeah, Castle
18:16:36 <ynpvisitor85> Nice!
18:17:06 <CraigC> hey Kat
18:18:13 <CraigC> Lion is ie
18:18:59 <CraigC> does this look like steam phase now?
18:21:12 <CraigC> in basin entry on Castle
18:21:28 <Kat> Hi Craig
18:22:24 <LindaG> Sure cam is up now
18:22:30 <CraigC> hey Linda
18:22:40 <LindaG> CraigC, hey
18:23:09 <ynpvisitor401> castle is major
18:39:12 <ynpvisitor104> Was that last Lion an initial?
18:44:50 <Cooper> i think so
18:52:03 <ynpvisitor104> Looks like another hour for Daisy’s window
18:53:37 <ynpvisitor104> Based on a triple interval
18:55:41 <CraigC> not sure which is more frustrating, cam going down, or being stuck in this spot
18:57:12 <ynpvisitor104> We can wait for Daisy I guess
19:04:57 <LindaG> Has the cam gone down at all in the last couple hours?
19:07:41 <ynpvisitor104> IDK but my connection has been choppy
19:08:49 <LindaG> Ok, I had problems with it all afternoon so I was wondering how its been. Choppy is better then frozen I guess.
19:37:39 <kcmule> OF
19:41:52 <ynpvisitor49> car video available? I only caught the last bit!
19:42:23 <ynpvisitor83> I couldn't believe that
19:42:31 <ynpvisitor83> Well, I suppose I can...
19:42:45 <Kevin L™🌵> What was the gas price?
19:48:36 <ynpvisitor83> I grabbed a screenshot, but no video.
19:53:38 <lorilurker> wonder how much of a rut it left?
19:53:44 <ynpvisitor83> ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)
19:59:46 <ynpvisitor103> Marmot cave ie
20:13:00 <ynpvisitor13> car? what did i miss
20:13:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Gas station
20:14:21 <ynpvisitor83> SUV had an up-close view of Old Faithful -
20:14:48 <ynpvisitor83> You may be able to see the tracks when the camera cycles over
20:15:23 <ynpvisitor13> wow - how close did they get? Did you see LE ?
20:16:12 <ynpvisitor83> No one that I could tell. As soon as OF finished up they did a three-point turn and headed back the way they came
20:19:26 <ynpvisitor13> wow
20:20:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Not really too uncommon this time of year.
20:20:18 <ynpvisitor83> Let's see if this works
20:20:19 <ynpvisitor83> https://imgur.com/a/cDh1UwL
20:21:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he wanted the Lower Hams gas station.
20:30:12 <ynpvisitor34> Wow, resource damage
20:32:45 <ynpvisitor19> That is not bad, rake the leftovers from when they pulled up the road. I thought they drove up by the cone or something exciting.
20:33:16 <ynpvisitor19> There is the bear, where is the cub?
20:42:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice sunset
20:52:58 <ynpvisitor34> You saw the bear again?
20:54:33 <Cooper1> goodnight everbody
20:57:59 <Cooper1> what geyser is that? Wondering befor I go
20:58:07 <Cooper1> before*
20:58:13 <Joe> Grand
20:58:21 <Cooper1> early
20:58:33 <Cooper1> very early
21:04:57 <Joe> Riverside
21:21:43 <Joe> OF
21:28:40 <Joe> Choices, where to put the Cam?
21:29:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I would go for the Grand BH. Castle not due until light.
21:31:42 <Joe> Thanks I have no Idea about Daisy not many recorded today
21:32:30 <Kevin L™🌵> A Daisy time would be easier than a BH time.
21:32:49 <Joe> There was an inbasin Lion 1817 maybe we will see one of those if in series
21:35:19 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be nice
21:37:29 <Joe> I hope DaveM comes on and positions the cam where he thinks best
21:38:00 <CraigC> was a bear seen again?
21:38:56 <Joe> Hi Craig, I do not know I came on about grand time
21:39:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I missed most of the day
21:39:27 <CraigC> hey Joe
21:39:53 <CraigC> saw the screenshot of the car, goofy people
21:40:11 <Joe> Most of the Day the cam was up and down
21:40:35 <Joe> I missed that screenshot
21:40:57 <CraigC> scroll up to 20:20
21:47:31 <Joe> Daisy now?
21:47:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it
21:49:41 <Joe> That screenshot is that LE?
21:50:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it is turons.
21:50:48 <Joe> wow! crazy
21:51:58 <Joe> Lion maybe
21:52:20 <Joe> Yes
21:52:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like Lion
21:52:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a car that drove onto the BW one night!
22:02:00 <Joe> This Dark and those lights are terrible, afraid to move as i'll lose the next Daisy
22:05:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Raise the cam above the lights.
22:06:24 <Joe> Ah! the cam went to night mode
22:07:31 <Joe> Thats better
22:14:23 <Kevin L™🌵> We do get the hood but it does make a clearer picture. You may want to pass the pan/tilt/zoom numbers on to Dave K for adjustment.
22:15:55 <Joe> will do
22:19:54 <Joe> I'm out for now, need a nap
