05:59:11 <LindaG> I'll have to see about Friday morning. Not crazy about co motto g to Friday all day while you are gone. But if cam continues ues to have problems, I may take Friday morning just to get something accomplished. I can always just make sure we catch old faithful and then just move cam around .

06:00:28 <Kat> That would be great Linda. Definitely needs to be planted on OF otherwise! :)

06:24:46 <CraigC> hey Graham, yeah, I hope.... we'll see how my mom is today
06:24:50 <CraigC> hey Linda
06:25:06 <CraigC> mom is pretty good, but has moments of confusion :(
06:25:55 <CraigC> she asked me about 20 different times how I knew Dave
06:26:10 <LindaG> Confusion could come on from being tired
06:26:22 <Kat> Sweet that she's with you. It's hard but you will not forget ti!
06:26:23 <CraigC> maybe she was concerned I would know someone like him
06:26:32 <Kat> :D
06:26:42 <LindaG> Lol
06:26:44 <CraigC> people at SB would so nice to her
06:26:47 <CraigC> w2ere
06:26:53 <Kat> Makes sense to me! :lol:
06:27:03 <Joe> Anyone knowing Dave would cause some confusion :)
06:27:03 <ynpvisitor73> the older gen doesn't always understand the new technology :) Chat? what is chat?
06:27:15 <CraigC> Carol Beverly was really cool talking to her and asking her things
06:27:42 <Kat> Here comes the sun!
06:27:46 <LindaG> CraigC, How old is she?
06:27:56 <CraigC> then another gazer, I forgot his name, came and sat next to her and out his umbrella over her
06:28:01 <CraigC> put
06:28:07 <CraigC> she is 85
06:28:11 <Kat> Seet!
06:28:11 <LindaG> That's sweet
06:28:18 <Kat> Sweet!*
06:28:40 <Kat> There'sour runner!
06:28:42 <CraigC> all of that more than made up for not seeing the eruption
06:29:29 <LindaG> For sure. Maybe when she rests she'll feel better.
06:30:27 <CraigC> seeing these griz cubs, she was so excited from seeing htem playing; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84xcCCfbpEU
06:31:49 <LindaG> Wow I'd be real excited too! Great memories for both of you.
06:32:09 <Kat> Adorable Craig!
06:32:12 <CraigC> I'm glad Lori made it over, too
06:33:13 <LindaG> How far a walk from lot to steamboat?
06:33:41 <CraigC> .25 mile
06:34:04 <LindaG> That's not too bad
06:34:26 <CraigC> not at all, unless you stay all day and have an old-man bladder ;)
06:34:40 <LindaG> 😆
06:35:10 <LindaG> I'd never make it
06:35:21 <CraigC> last year I may or may not have found a nearby tree
06:35:41 <Joe> Sheesh!!! Craig you are not old!
06:35:58 <CraigC> Joe, my bladder thinks I am
06:36:04 <Joe> :)
06:36:44 <Joe> LC linda
06:37:06 <LindaG> I'll enter
06:37:13 <Joe> :)
06:38:23 <LindaG> There's always another steamboat 🤞
06:38:24 <CraigC> I think the gentleman that sat by my mom was Roy
06:39:23 <LindaG> How many were there?
06:40:17 <CraigC> Dave, Tom, Bill and Carol, Roy, Udo, Steve and Michelle Eide
06:40:41 <CraigC> Udo left when we did
06:41:01 <LindaG> Oh that's not too crowded
06:43:16 <LindaG> A steamer
06:43:28 <Kat> Yep
06:43:52 <Kat> That's a lot of reflection!
06:46:48 <Kat> Pre-play!
06:49:04 <Joe> Hi Mike
06:49:16 <Mike J> Morning Joe
06:49:37 <Joe> How are things in AZ?
06:50:55 <Mike J> I don't really know. In the middle of a month of nigh-on non-stop travel. This is the one full day in town I've had in about two weeks, and going back out again.
06:51:03 <Mike J> But the quick easy answer...hot
06:51:47 <Joe> AH!
06:52:10 <Joe> hope you are enjoying your travels
06:52:28 <Mike J> Actually, for us, not that hot will be tomorrow before it hits 100 again. But, calling that mild seems a bit...weird
06:55:25 <Joe> We hit 80 here in WY yesterday, I was wondering 'where did that come from'
06:55:45 <Mike J> Honest, we didn't send it your way
06:57:17 <Joe> Did you see Dave from B FINALLY got his first Steamboat
06:57:52 <Joe> Hi lc
06:58:02 <lc> morning
06:58:36 <lc> GOOD for Dave.
06:58:43 <CraigC> hey lc
06:59:22 <Mike J> I didn't know that. Congrats to Dave
07:00:43 <lc> I just wish Becca could have been with Dave.
07:13:12 <Joe> Nice splash
07:13:16 <Kat> Bee splash
07:14:08 <Kat> :)
07:14:31 <Kat> when is it going to go Joe? :)
07:14:47 <Joe> no idea!
07:15:40 <Joe> nice steam from marmot
07:16:10 <Joe> LC ie
07:16:21 <Mike J> "When is it going to go?" Easiest question about geysers to answer in the world. "Some time, maybe, unless it doesn't...unless it does."
07:16:35 <Joe> oops allready posted
07:17:04 <LindaG> Well enjoy bee im off to tai chi. Oh I rhymed. 😋 kat responded to email about friday.
07:17:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder if Dave stayed at SB for the steam phase?
07:18:11 <LindaG> ☹ I just lost the bet
07:18:35 <Kat> Joe I edited my time I was early!
07:18:52 <Joe> ok
07:18:54 <Kat> What bet!
07:19:56 <ynpvisitor27> should get Dome today
07:20:27 <Kat> I think so too!
07:22:45 <Joe> Here is a challenge!
07:23:23 <Joe> Guess what time the activit starts that takes the camera down?
07:23:34 <Joe> activity*
07:23:39 <Kat> 0918
07:24:07 <Kat> ??
07:24:49 <Craig-phone> I will guess 917, Bob Barker
07:25:04 <Joe> I'll have to review the replay for the answer, I have wizards to visit soon
07:25:16 <Kat> LOL
07:25:16 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:25:25 <Kat> Morning!
07:25:28 <Joe> Hi Jarno
07:25:31 <ynpvisitor44> Good Luck!
07:25:31 <Craig-phone> Hey Jarno
07:25:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Glad to see Dave [i]finally[/i] got to see SB
07:25:54 <Joe> yes good for Dave
07:26:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> he missed the 0700 prediction for his arrival in chat
07:26:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> i bet he was giddy with excitement
07:27:43 <Joe> I would be for sure!
07:28:40 <Craig-phone> I'm hoping to catch the steam phase, if my mom ever finishes her f'n waffle
07:29:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha .... patience ....
07:30:02 <Kat> Patience - I used to travel with my Mom and it was painful! Wish I had her back.
07:30:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> hope it has a long steam phase just for you ... otherwise it wil be puffy steam
07:30:42 <Kat> :):
07:31:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
07:31:24 <Joe> Lion
07:35:31 <Kat> Bubblers
07:36:36 <Joe> nice south bubbler ~ 30 min to Bee
07:37:13 <Joe> or not
07:37:15 <Kat> :) OK
07:37:26 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, Graham, how long does it usually last?
07:37:27 <Kat> Castle -Bee ??
07:37:36 <ynpvisitor27> not quite as tall as yesterday
07:38:04 <Joe> it teased
07:38:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> steam phae? SOme have been short, dying don around 12h but others have gone more like 24h
07:38:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> likely still in some steam phase if you get there in an hour
07:39:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> get waffle to go
07:39:20 <lc> just me, but I wouldn't make special trip this late in steam phase.
07:39:48 <ynpvisitor999®> you might be able to catch post-steam water, if it still does that. Last eruption didn't have one if I recall correctly
07:40:08 <CraigC> ok, I think we'll head south at Madison Jct
07:40:21 <CraigC> look for short fat dude in tie-die shirt
07:41:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> true Jarno, sometimes the mixed phase will keep going excitedly for a while
07:41:18 <Kat> :) Craig!
07:42:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> could go to UGB and try for BH instead Craig
07:42:58 <Joe> and Grand near 11
07:42:58 <Eric> I have seen pics...you are not fat!
07:43:09 <Eric> and morning all
07:43:20 <Joe> Hi Eric
07:43:32 <Eric> 6h grand :-(
07:43:47 <Kat> Morning Eric
07:44:49 <Eric> Hi Kat
07:44:52 <Eric> and joe
07:45:40 <ynpvisitor999®> we did get two 5-Grand days in 3 days, so there's that. Including a sub-5h interval, possibly two if 0726 ie wc started two minutes earlier
07:46:25 <Eric> Didn't we get E time on that one?
07:46:28 <ynpvisitor999®> LS ie
07:46:48 <Eric> Bet we have a lot of in basin times today :-D
07:47:09 <ynpvisitor999®> no E times for Grand recently it seems
07:47:23 <Eric> Hmmm, bummer
07:47:33 <Eric> ohh, I was thinking daisy times :-|
07:48:06 <Eric> Looks like memorial day weekend is going to be a rainy/cold mess
07:48:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> forecast will change to sunny and warm by then
07:48:40 <Joe> normal memorial day
07:49:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Kat, that's a quick trip to Yellowstone to catch LS ie in-basin :P
07:49:43 <Kat> fast aren't I ??
07:49:50 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
07:50:54 <Kat> Watch me next week I'll be entering WC while in basin! :lol:
07:51:23 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
07:51:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 0751: White X
07:52:24 <ynpvisitor999®> and back
07:56:39 <ynpvisitor999®> and down again
07:57:04 <Kat> Here we go!
07:57:30 <Kat> It's something interfering!
07:57:51 <Joe> someone showed up for work early!! argh!!
07:57:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> we will be following along behind you Kat watching the posts
07:59:00 <Kat> Hopefully! It will be new for me to post in basin - but I;m up for it!
07:59:11 <Kat> I'm *
07:59:25 <Joe> lost again
07:59:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> the app is good because even if yo dont get a connection right away it will upload later
08:00:00 <Kat> Someone needs to do some observations and see what's happening at this time
08:00:16 <Kat> Thanks GO STEAMBOAT,
08:00:20 <ynpvisitor999®> up for now
08:00:53 <Kat> It's up but I still don"t have cam connection - have to sign back in
08:00:56 <Eric> But this is high quality radio...not wifi, it can't fail! :-P
08:01:18 <Joe> I have emailed the people in Mammoth plenty of times with the failure times
08:01:40 <Eric> Jake is actually logging them now based on my status updates
08:01:52 <Eric> If you guys need a log of down times
08:03:13 <Kat> I'm starting to have a love/hate relationship with this cam!:thumbsup::thumbsdown:
08:04:50 <Joe> that would be good to double check my times I get a time when my recording stops then a time when it starts again, with about a 1 min max error
08:05:12 <Joe> on the start time
08:06:13 <Eric> Ohh, then you probably have just as good or better time log :-D
08:06:19 <Eric> down
08:07:28 <Joe> I dont think mammoth has many trouble shooters, so discovering the problen could take months :( IT is Gov't you know
08:07:34 <Kat> Up
08:09:06 <Eric> Yes, this might require a contractor to fix
08:09:26 <Eric> Someone who can dedicate time to solving the issue
08:10:14 <Eric> But it takes management to commit the resources to make it happen
08:10:31 <Kat> $$$
08:12:42 <Joe> something is being used that has a harmonic frequency that interferes with the radio link IMHO
08:12:56 <Joe> down
08:13:16 <Kat> Up
08:14:22 <Kat> d
08:14:53 <Joe> what is being used I do not know even FRS has harmonics in that area
08:15:24 <Kat> up
08:15:38 <Eric> Lot's of stuff can interfere with wifi over that kind of distance
08:16:09 <Eric> Even the long range microwaves that are used in communications to Washburn
08:17:01 <Joe> Yes it will be hard to find
08:17:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
08:17:58 <Joe> But It can be narrowed dowt to what happens in daytime as dropouts at night are rare
08:18:00 <Eric> Look at this: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Old+Faithful/@44.4566199,-110.8314067,100m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281376
08:18:13 <Eric> Notice which way that microwave dish is pointing!
08:18:39 <Eric> Apparently directly at the ranger station where the Wifi/router are at
08:19:06 <Eric> That can blast the crud out of any signal
08:20:36 <Eric> hmm, note microwave ovens also interfere with wifi
08:20:55 <Joe> Yes even though it is a 1 watt concentrated beam it sure can, the only thing is it operates continuously
08:21:01 <Eric> I wonder if they change the radios to use 5ghz instead of 2.4ghz it will work better?
08:21:35 <Eric> Not sure how the radios are setup right now
08:21:58 <Eric> I am pretty sure the decent quality ubiquities have both 2.4 & 5 ghz capabilities
08:22:01 <Eric> Morning Bill
08:22:04 <Bill> Good morning
08:22:08 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
08:22:24 <Eric> Cam down...someone making breakfast at the ranger station :-P
08:23:07 <Eric> I wonder where the radio is located at the ranger station?
08:23:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill, may I ask you why the Google Drive folder with logger data is currently made non-public?
08:23:42 <Joe> Sent e-mali to the responsible person about cam
08:24:03 <Eric> He commented on that earlier Jarno
08:24:12 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, didn't see that then
08:24:16 <Eric> official slap down
08:24:26 <Eric> Data needs to go through proper channels
08:24:26 <ynpvisitor999®> :(
08:24:34 <Eric> He is working on a solution
08:24:45 <Bill> the tl:dr is that we need to publish it officially as "provisional" data.
08:24:47 <Eric> To get data out faster
08:24:56 <ynpvisitor22> Slime. I had hoped this was not going to be a problem :(
08:25:22 <Eric> We have a wiper if they actually have a way to trigger it
08:25:27 <Bill> When i get back from my trip it's right near the top of my priority list.
08:25:35 <Eric> :thumbsup:
08:25:47 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, not sure how much of the logger data is 'provisional' anyway, but good to know you're working on it
08:26:40 <Joe> They would have to run wires to somewhere in the inn to control the wiper, not going to happen imho
08:27:39 <ynpvisitor22> I wonder how effective the wiper would be on geyserite spume? Just spread it around?
08:27:49 <Joe> OR go to roof and clean the dome, could be made flag raisers/lowerers duties
08:28:12 <ynpvisitor22> Lots of volunteers :)
08:30:10 <Eric> hmmm, weird that it's not hooked into the controls via wifi...oh well
08:30:25 <Eric> Why bother with a cabinet like that if they aren't even going to use it!
08:30:45 <Eric> OF is going to be pretty this morning
08:30:52 <ynpvisitor22> I think they had hopes
08:31:12 <Eric> So many green predictions!
08:34:32 <Joe> I do not know if it is a smart dome with wifi capabilities for control
08:35:18 <Joe> Well, off to see the Wizards, BBL
08:35:30 <Eric> Good luck Joe
08:35:35 <Eric> Thanks for all you do!
08:35:46 <Kat> Bye Joe
08:35:57 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Joe
08:37:21 <ynpvisitor117> of
08:38:54 <Kat> no I didn't
08:44:10 <Kat> Looked like an osprey that flew by
08:45:23 <Katie> g'morning
08:45:44 <Kat> Hi Katie
08:46:40 <Teri> Lion preplay?
08:46:56 <Kat> I think the end of Lion
08:47:33 <Teri> steam phase (?)
08:47:50 <Teri> looked like it was more active for a moment
08:48:08 <Eric> Hi KAtie and Teri
08:48:24 <Kat> LC
08:48:46 <Teri> hey Eric, looks like you had some nice hikes this weekend; saw your posts
08:49:21 <Teri> Sprinkler
08:50:24 <Eric> Yep...got in a good hike over the weekend, but my legs are still feeling it :-D
08:50:49 <Teri> in PT to try to get my knees back from Sept in the park, lol; want to get back this fall
08:51:03 <Eric> I am fine going up, up, up...but the down, down, down makes my thighs hurt like crazy.
08:51:24 <Eric> Well I hope the PT works!
08:51:30 <Teri> stretches and PT will help muscles, joints, not so much
08:51:38 <Eric> knees are tough buggers
08:51:58 <Teri> wife had bilateral replacements mid-Nov, still in recovery
08:52:26 <Eric> Yikes...that, that takes some time
08:52:42 <Teri> yep
08:53:12 <Eric> Fingers crossed my knees stay strong. I did trash my maniscus when I was young, but they still seem to be holding up for now.
08:53:56 <Eric> FYI, REI anniversary sale starts on Friday if anyone is looking for new gear
08:54:12 <Teri> PT, yoga will help keep stress off joints if muscles are in shape
08:54:42 <Eric> I need to add Yoga to my work schedule...my core can definitely use some work :-D
08:54:58 <Eric> Car on Bike path
08:55:11 <Eric> Not sure where it cam from
08:55:13 <Teri> core and glut's the key
08:55:32 <Teri> they used a 1950s map
08:55:41 <Eric> My gluts are great! I have been hiking vertical ascents for the last 6 months :-D
08:55:54 <Kat> Might regret saying this....but cam has been steady since before OF
08:55:56 <Eric> But my core is weak...
08:56:13 <Eric> Everyone at ranger station done using the microwave for breakfast
08:56:14 <Teri> Kat, don't jinx it, lol
08:56:34 <Eric> They will start microwaving stuff again around 11am :-P
08:56:43 <Teri> 0920+ yet to come
08:56:54 <Kat> LOL Eric
08:57:09 <Eric> Did we catch lion?
08:57:17 <Kat> only the end
08:57:39 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
08:57:43 <Eric> Someone who saw it should log it
08:57:50 <Eric> Morning Dave....congrats!
08:57:51 <Teri> hey Dave, congrats on SB!!!
08:57:56 <Eric> You are no longer cursed
08:58:03 <Kat> Dave - heard you had a great day yesterday!
08:58:04 <Teri> saw the seismo and heard that you were there
08:58:11 <Dave from B™> Thanks. What an event
08:58:20 <Teri> how long was the water phase and how high?
08:58:24 <Eric> It's pretty awesome/fun!
08:58:26 <Dave from B™> My streak ended at 80 hours
08:58:36 <Eric> Nice...good round number
08:58:44 <Dave from B™> Most of the water was over after 10-14 minutes
08:58:50 <Katie> Congrats, Dave! When I saw the seismo, my first reaction was "I hope Dave was still there!"
08:59:02 <ynpvisitor103> BHI reported
08:59:21 <Eric> .
08:59:22 <Eric> .
08:59:23 <Eric> .
08:59:23 <Eric> .
08:59:24 <Eric> .
08:59:28 <Eric> on static too
08:59:35 <Dave from B™> It erupted 35 minutes before I was leaving. Carol, Bill, MA and Tom C had just left and they returned.
08:59:45 <Eric> Nice
08:59:49 <Eric> Glad you stayed
09:00:02 <Eric> I expected it around midnight
09:00:09 <Eric> BH
09:01:01 <Eric> Someone sending txt?
09:01:21 <Dave from B™> What surprised me most was the water's exit velocity
09:01:24 <Kat> I don't have access to send
09:02:25 <Eric> Sent
09:02:42 <Kat> Thanks ric
09:02:49 <Kat> Eric*
09:03:09 <Eric> NP, usually others on here send so I never end up doing it :-P
09:03:14 <ynpvisitor93> Thanks for the text!
09:03:34 <Kitt> wow, just sat down at my computger when my phone whistled
09:03:43 <Eric> Glad you made it
09:04:33 <Eric> Morning Lori...heard you got a little Steamboat last night :-D Congrats
09:04:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> congrats Dave, the most surprising thing was that you were there .... that monkey is off your back now
09:05:01 <Lori S> Haha, yep. Thx. Bit tired this morning. ;)
09:05:08 <Kitt> what is the shiny section to left of Solitary?
09:05:14 <Eric> I bet...but good tradeoff
09:05:25 <Eric> Dome reflection Kitt
09:05:29 <ynpvisitor21> Reflection Kitt
09:05:42 <Kitt> it is quite annoying
09:05:43 <Lori S> And Hi
09:05:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> congrats Lori too
09:05:47 <Kitt> hadn't seen it before
09:06:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> how long did you stay there Dave?
09:06:22 <Lori S> my second...never thought I'd see one let alone TWO
09:06:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> after the start?
09:06:24 <Dave from B™> Thanks Graham. I'm exhausted. I was up 21 hours yesterday which included 6.5 hours of driving
09:06:52 <Dave from B™> I stayed until 50 minutes after. I need to get my bike to my car before dark.
09:06:53 <Kitt> did you get to see the start Dave?
09:06:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> gld it worked out this time
09:06:56 <ynpvisitor106> Lots of folks waiting for Castle this morning
09:06:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Bet the truck stop was more fun this time
09:07:00 <Eric> ohhh, you drove home!
09:07:12 <ynpvisitor106> How's your car windshield Dave?
09:07:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> he had a steam rumble in his ears all the way home
09:07:23 <Dave from B™> It was a great eruption. Perfect wind direction. Great dusk lighting
09:07:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice
09:07:40 <Eric> awesome...sounds beautiful
09:07:45 <Dave from B™> Kitt, yes, I did. I was on the middle railing the WHOLE time:)
09:07:49 <Kitt> yay, Dave got that monkey off his back
09:07:54 <Kitt> awesome
09:08:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> i couldnt leave the middle railing for the frst one either
09:08:09 <Kitt> my favorite spot
09:08:16 <Dave from B™> Now, Becca wants one:)
09:08:17 <ynpvisitor93> Dave from B™, I just read you saw AN - congratulations! I know we were all crossing our fingers that you were there!
09:08:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> GO BECCA
09:08:35 <Lori S> In fact, I think I caught it BECAUSE Dave was there. He was due.
09:08:36 <Dave from B™> 35 minutes later and I would have missed it
09:08:39 <Eric> :-D I hope she gets one Dave
09:08:59 <Eric> castle
09:09:06 <ynpvisitor26> Dave from B™, congrats DAVE, WAY TO GO!
09:09:10 <Kitt> I hope Becca gets one soon
09:09:14 <Kitt> Castle
09:09:14 <Kat> :castle:
09:09:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> all of us were rooting for you here Dave, except for Eric
09:09:37 <Lori S> haha
09:09:44 <Kevin L™🌵> 7.5 eq in New Guinea really rang the OF seismo.
09:09:51 <Eric> haha...I was the only person to wish him luck on his FB page!
09:09:59 <LindaG> Lori S, congrats to you too!
09:10:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> no wonder everyone else left as Dave was still there :)
09:10:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Makes sense
09:10:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> but now Dave there is a good sign
09:10:35 <Eric> Was it just Lori and Dave there for the start?
09:10:47 <ynpvisitor106> Car get slimed Dave?
09:10:53 <Kitt> I just wish Giant would have stayed active
09:10:57 <Lori S> Thx Linda. I felt guilty just arriving to Elk Park to see the start after Dave's long day.
09:11:03 <Eric> Agree with that Kitt
09:11:23 <Eric> Or did Dave get solo start?
09:11:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> i want Morning back
09:11:34 <Dave from B™> There was a point after the 4 or 5 minors in quick succession, that both vents stopped completely and I was thinking....@#$%@#$%#$%^
09:11:43 <Lori S> Lori saw the near start to be exact. Cleared the treesa and saw a rising steam cloud and water column.
09:11:58 <lc> congrats Dave, just wish Becca could have been with you.
09:11:59 <Dave from B™> 106, my car was parked 1.5 miles away..no damage
09:12:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> Steve E was there for the start, he posted time but its one minute after seismo time
09:12:21 <Eric> Just curious as I said yesterday that everyone would leave and Dave would get a solo start...wondering how close I was :-D
09:12:38 <ynpvisitor82> Very.
09:12:45 <Dave from B™> Gazers there at the start on the middle platform were Steve Eide and his daughter, Roy and myself
09:12:47 <ynpvisitor60> I like Castle from the new camera!
09:12:53 <ynpvisitor106> Glad you got it and hoping it keeps up this cadence
09:12:53 <Kat> :)
09:12:53 <Lori S> Many were in process of leaving...Tom said he got radio called back.
09:13:19 <Eric> cone walker at Castle
09:13:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> when did you leave SB Dave?
09:13:52 <ynpvisitor60> Can we get the NPS to cut down a few of those trees so we can see castle better?
09:13:52 <Eric> Can't see them behind the trees
09:14:03 <ynpvisitor106> Eric that's a pretty frequent off trail spot now
09:14:17 <Eric> I bet with no timbers blocking it
09:14:17 <ynpvisitor106> Everyone seems to walk there and get a picture, especially the "tour" groups
09:14:29 <Eric> The Ctour groups :-P
09:14:38 <ynpvisitor106> You said it not me
09:14:49 <Lori S> 106, or me
09:14:50 <Kitt> they need a bucking pole fence along that area
09:14:52 <Eric> I have no problem calling them out!
09:15:04 <Kitt> although the bison wouldn't like it
09:15:05 <Eric> Ctour is horrible!
09:15:37 <Lori S> Given CTour had to change their name from Seagull Holiday due to issues, well..
09:15:42 <Dave from B™> Graham, I left 50 minutes after the start
09:15:51 <ynpvisitor106> Ctour Holiday is a joke
09:16:04 <ynpvisitor106> The tour groups are just terrible in general
09:16:09 <ynpvisitor106> They do the same thing on top of Ledge
09:16:12 <Eric> I assume they are all part of the same conglomerate that is buying/building stuff in West
09:16:23 <ynpvisitor106> Get there pictures of Porcelain basin
09:16:26 <Dave from B™> It was fun meeting CraigC and Lori S
09:16:41 <Lori S> not sure, Eric. Chinese, yes, but not sure if CTour related.
09:16:49 <Eric> While sitting at F&M I had to yell at multiple ctour people to get off the cone!
09:17:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> just over 2 weeks till your second SB Dave :) or are you going back this weekend too?
09:17:19 <Lori S> Dave, nice to meet you too finally. I missed Craig.
09:17:20 <Dave from B™> Becca would like to but the weather doesn't look fun
09:17:22 <Eric> I bet they are all the same....sell the tour packages for $$$ hotel/buses/tours/....
09:17:48 <Eric> Only makes sense they are financially connected
09:18:00 <Lori S> They mostly stay at the White Buffalo which i think is American owned.
09:18:18 <Eric> Glad steve is in basin
09:18:27 <Eric> hmmm, interesting
09:18:28 <Dave from B™> I was frozen to the middle platform. Next time, I want to be at steerage so I can get to Decker
09:18:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, so you are going bak Dave?
09:18:51 <Kitt> was it a muddy eruption Dave?
09:18:52 <Lori S> Lori meeting Dave: Are you Dave? "WHAT?" I'm Lori S. "WHAT?" lol
09:18:54 <Eric> Middle platform is a great place to watch...you get the roar of the column
09:19:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> first time i stayed in middle, didnt want to leave, especially as we had no idea of durations. didnt leave until it was in steam phase and then went round the basin for views
09:19:51 <Dave from B™> haha Lori....it is so loud!!! and I'm deaf in my left ear, so that doesn't help
09:20:19 <Dave from B™> Kitt, yes, it was muddy from north vertical vent
09:20:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> second time i saw the start at Middle, then wind shifted so i ran to Deker. high fived Micah heading the other way
09:20:27 <Kitt> awesome
09:20:51 <Dave from B™> We saw Micah yesterday on the Frolic Tour
09:21:11 <Kitt> love the mud, gut wrenching sound, and the percussion waves
09:21:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> i ddnt know Frolic was that popular
09:21:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> when are you going Kitt?
09:21:28 <Lori S> Our truck now has a 2nd SB coating & this time I had no water with me so the windshield is toast.
09:21:33 <Kitt> What is a Frolic tour?
09:22:02 <Eric> oh bummer Lori :-(
09:22:13 <Eric> Get it washed quick today
09:22:19 <Lori S> Frolic is when the new Xanterra guides (or returning guides that haven't worked in a while) get toured around the park by Mr. Quinn.
09:22:20 <Eric> run it through a car wash, it will help
09:22:44 <Kitt> Lori rinse what you can off with water, then use Windex on your windows, which helps
09:22:58 <Kitt> oh
09:23:13 <Lori S> Bob grouchily rubbed it with a towel this morning. I plan to give it a once over tonight when he gets back.
09:23:20 <Dave from B™> It got my bike but I sat on it anyway:)
09:23:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> when are you going Kitt?
09:23:35 <Eric> Nice...SB coated bike!
09:23:36 <Kitt> mid June
09:23:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> do you have SB gravel on your coat and hat too Dave?
09:23:53 <Eric> Not sure how many layers of silica Tom has on his beaver hat :-D
09:23:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a long wait ...t will be fn i bet
09:24:07 <Lori S> My shoes, whcih I am wearing, are still a bit damp. :)
09:24:16 <ynpvisitor82> 9
09:24:18 <Eric> :-D
09:24:19 <Dave from B™> Graham, absolutely no water hit middle platform
09:24:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> Lori S, :thumbsup:
09:24:28 <Eric> Thanks Tom :-D
09:24:34 <ynpvisitor82> NP
09:24:48 <Eric> Always watching....
09:25:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice Dave...makes sense as you didnt move
09:25:13 <Dave from B™> haha Tom
09:25:15 <Kitt> Tom has 9 eruptions this year?
09:25:23 <Dave from B™> 9 starts
09:25:29 <Eric> Total I assume
09:25:32 <Kitt> awesome
09:25:40 <Kitt> does his hat sparkle again?
09:25:41 <ynpvisitor82> 1 this year
09:25:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> double digit party comign up for him
09:26:09 <ynpvisitor106> OK so Castle is Major?
09:26:18 <Eric> Ok...so what living person has the most steamboat eruptions from start?
09:26:27 <Lori S> We'll have to start including Tom in the stats.
09:26:32 <Eric> one of the beverlys?
09:26:37 <ynpvisitor106> Probably the folks who live in/near the park
09:26:54 <ynpvisitor106> Retired/full time gazers
09:26:55 <Eric> Can't live much closer than the beverlys :-D
09:27:08 <Eric> Not sure how many Udo has
09:27:11 <Kitt> But not all of their eruptions are from the start
09:27:31 <ynpvisitor106> I know cb had something like ~20 last year but not sure on how many were from start
09:27:48 <Eric> That is soooo many SB eruptions...insane!
09:27:54 <Dave from B™> Beverly's lead in eruption starts seen away from the platform and speeding from the residential area after hearing it
09:28:19 <Eric> That picked a couple of good years for Bill to work there!
09:28:27 <ynpvisitor106> At the end of the day I think seeing it once from start is the best thing
09:28:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> amazing how many peole have seen it now compared to before this series started .. hardly any gazers had seen it start before, probably less than 10?
09:28:37 <ynpvisitor106> If you've seen it more, good for you but who cares
09:29:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> agree 106, it's not a competition
09:29:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> either for eruptions seen or hours spent
09:29:20 <Eric> It's just interesting to me...nothing about competition.
09:29:26 <Kitt> I just like the variety of starts
09:29:45 <ynpvisitor106> Helping others get to see it and sharing your experience and comparing notes is a lot of fun
09:29:53 <Kat> Do you think Craig has his mom in a wheelchair -if so he just left Castle
09:30:02 <Kitt> would love to see one like they did last year where it stopped 4 times then restarted
09:30:13 <Eric> Yes, it's awesome that more people get to see it and lot's of people are getting multiple shots at it!
09:30:17 <Dave from B™> No wheelchair for Craig's mom
09:30:24 <Kat> OK thanks!
09:30:37 <Kitt> have a good da
09:30:39 <Kitt> day
09:30:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was amazing KItt ......... and i guess it did it on the prior one too but peeps left due to dark and bad wind direction
09:31:07 <Eric> Interesting...don't remember the restart ones
09:31:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> it didnt stop on the one after though
09:31:14 <Eric> That would be cool to see
09:31:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> 9/17
09:31:50 <Lori S> I have been accused by Bob of worshiping a false idol...Steamboat. LOL
09:32:01 <Kat> LOL Lori
09:32:06 <Eric> No, it's a real idol :-P
09:32:06 <Lori S> Dave, were you still there when the spriting reached mid eck>
09:32:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> nothing false about it
09:32:11 <Lori S> *deck
09:32:13 <Eric> :-D
09:33:03 <Dave from B™> Lori, I must have left before that. BW was wet near Emerald
09:33:16 <Lori S> Pretty sure he is upset he didn't go with me last night. He has never seen a SB and doesn't like sitting and waiting.
09:33:51 <Lori S> Dave, wind shifted and we all got drenched. Water mist returned to the steam.
09:33:56 <Dave from B™> Not sure if has been mentioned but the median for the last 100 is now under 11 days at 10d18h57m
09:34:17 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
09:34:31 <Dave from B™> I would have stayed longer but I had my bike. I wish I had spent the night in Gardiner. I was exhausted on the way home
09:34:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> Now you can quit visiting the park Dave, nothing new to see
09:35:03 <Lori S> I bet, Dave
09:35:09 <Dave from B™> Oh, but how about the grizzly sow and 3 cubs of the year. Saw them on the way home:)
09:35:25 <Lori S> cool
09:35:29 <Dave from B™> I would love to go and watch them all day
09:35:45 <Dave from B™> Between Roaring mountain and Grizzly Lake tralhead
09:35:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> seen one bear, seen them all :)
09:36:14 <Lori S> Go Steamboat, you sound like Bob.
09:36:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha.......Dave has seen it all
09:36:43 <Lori S> ruh roh
09:36:52 <Kat> down
09:36:58 <Kat> and up
09:37:47 <Lori S> Really have to do some work now. Thx for Bee txt! And congrats Dave!
09:38:51 <Eric> Bye Lori
09:39:12 <Dave from B™> Thanks Lori. I have the big Yellowstone smile on today
09:39:34 <Lori S> Me too but no where near as big as your smile I am sure. :)
09:40:00 <Dave from B™> And, today would have been my father's 91st birthday. As I told Tom yesterday, he's a big reason why I'm a Yellowstone lover.
09:40:02 <Lori S> Bye Eric, bye all
09:40:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> you have lived with the anticipation for a long time ... enjoy the elation now
09:40:15 <Eric> Nice Dave
09:40:29 <Eric> I hope you got a great selfie :-D
09:40:42 <Kat> Happy for you Dave! Hope I have the same luck next week!
09:41:28 <Dave from B™> No selfie but I'm hoping to get lots of pics today. Thanks, Tom for sending a pic via MA
09:41:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> we could have the 1955 or 1956 start time debate now
09:42:02 <Dave from B™> To be honest, there was so much excitement I couldn't tell you the actual start time
09:42:02 <Eric> Hey, did anyone get a copy of the group shot from 5/27 last year?
09:42:13 <Eric> I would love a copy, but have never seen one
09:42:23 <Dave from B™> Carol has been at my initial F&M and SB
09:42:33 <Katie> I've seen them on the Geyser Gazers FB Group.
09:42:54 <Eric> The shot from 5/27/19 Katie?
09:43:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> Seismo shows 1955 with slight possibility of 1954 as the tail starts right at the beginning
09:43:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> nt that 1min really matters
09:43:37 <Katie> I'm pretty sure, Eric. I'm searching, now.
09:44:01 <Dave from B™> To be honest, I think the start was 54 but my watch isn't accurate so I would be guessing
09:44:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Lori said she saw 1955 on her phone ns
09:44:47 <Katie> So far, the only one I'm finding is from September, but I know I saw the May 27 one. I was present for the taking of that but not really in it.
09:47:23 <Eric> I saw those from 5/27 Katie...they aren't the big group shot we did
09:47:40 <Eric> I scanned through all the GG images :-D I see your comment selfie there :-D
09:49:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> just saw MA's photo of SB on FB - looks like the May 27 chocolate vanilla swirl phase
09:50:37 <Dave from B™> It almost seemed like there were 3 or 4 columns of water, with the middle left the dirty one
09:57:24 <Super Heavy> Congrats Dave
09:57:47 <Dave from B™> Thanks SH!
09:58:00 <Dave from B™> E Biker is a better handle:)
09:58:14 <Super Heavy> I have a display problem I can only see part of the chat history. Any ideas Eric?
09:58:27 <Super Heavy> Never mind, fixed it
10:01:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like I may need NoDoz today
10:01:32 <ynpvisitor103> Early OF
10:01:37 <ynpvisitor103> on static
10:02:39 <Dave from B™> I hadn't been to the park this early in the year for awhile. So, nice and quiet and animals everywhere
10:08:09 <Kat> Kevin, Have a good afternoon! See you all in the park! WOOHOO!
10:08:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Enjoy your trip Kat
10:08:45 <Kat> Thanks I will
10:09:46 <Dave from B™> Have fun, Kat!
10:10:15 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I shudder to think about my trip being Tues-Wed instead of Mon-Tues. That was the original plan
10:11:01 <Kevin L™🌵> You did luck out!
10:14:33 <Dave from B™> Yep....there is a LOT of luck involved.
10:15:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> not luck at this point, good planning and hard work
10:15:17 <Eric> Yep...told you it would go monday!
10:15:30 <Eric> Glad you went Dave
10:15:36 <ynpvisitor23> Dave, what should I look for before an eruption of Steamboat
10:20:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
10:20:41 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:20:42 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:20:42 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:20:47 <Katie> Great view!
10:20:50 <Dave from B™> woohoo
10:21:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> people screaming is a good sign
10:21:56 <Dave from B™> 23, big increase in minor frequency right before an eruption. Other than that, patience and more patience and a good sense of humor
10:22:24 <ynpvisitor41> Thanks!
10:22:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> although it has gone on the first minor after a lull too, but miltiple strong minors in minutes is a good sign
10:23:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> that wil get a radio call
10:29:35 <Dave from B™> Yep...after minor #2, Steve told the Beverly's to get their $$%@ back here
10:30:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> and it worked
10:31:14 <Dave from B™> I'm not even sure SB should be called a geyser. Such a different experience than any other
10:31:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> now you know why its called "The Monster"
10:38:46 <ynpvisitor23> Was that your first SB
10:39:04 <Dave from B™> Yes
10:45:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> Craig posted OT .... probably at Grand but no Turban posted
10:47:08 <ynpvisitor62> Visitor Center here - anyone see Daisy'
10:47:25 <ynpvisitor62> ..see Daisy's last eruption around 8:30 +-30 minutes?
10:48:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't recall seeing it. Could've gone when cam was on OF or on the Hill
10:48:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam was down for a while during that time also.
10:48:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Quite some wind it seems
10:49:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF was 0837 so cam was probably pointed in the wrong direction
10:49:41 <Kevin L™🌵> No mention of Daisy at that time in the log.
10:50:10 <Casey> Morning
10:50:47 <Teri> hmm, does the cam not like the rain?; jitter here
10:51:14 <ynpvisitor999®> it's likely wind is doing the jittering, Teri
10:51:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Casey
10:51:34 <Teri> different than the old cam sway, tks
10:51:39 <Eric> Compression artifacting I think Teri
10:51:47 <Teri> that's what I was thinkg
10:51:53 <Eric> Notice the dots on the cam are moving too
10:52:18 <Eric> Dots would stay still and image would move if it's the wind
10:52:21 <Teri> something about the zoom doesn't like the raindrops (?)
10:53:10 <Eric> I wonder if they have an image stabilizer setup on the cam?
10:53:16 <ynpvisitor999®> I only know so much about webcams :P Didn't know compression artifacting was a thing
10:54:34 <Eric> I bet they have image stabilization turned on and they need to turn it off!
10:55:05 <Eric> This looks like the image attempting to shift and stay stable
10:55:15 <Katie> Agreed
10:55:18 <Eric> I bet that might clear up a bunch of issues if they turn it off
10:56:53 <Eric> From the camera manual: • Do not use the built-in camera functions or included software listed below in cases requiring a high level of reliability: – Intelligent functions – Image Stabilizer
10:57:47 <ynpvisitor78> Riverside?
10:59:39 <Eric> yep
11:00:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> we dont want no intelligent functions
11:03:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:03:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> elk on electric Peak cam
11:05:10 <ynpvisitor999®> rude chat program
11:16:23 <Katie> Grand (since no one said it)
11:16:34 <ynpvisitor78> :grand:
11:17:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Picked a great time to go down
11:17:24 <Super Heavy> no cam damn
11:17:28 <Dave from B™> mine is frozen so I see no grand
11:18:20 <Kevin L™🌵> At least mine is frozen as Grand went up.
11:18:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> lways worth logging it Katie because sometimes we all forget
11:18:34 <Katie> Hmmm... that discrepancy in when the frame froze for different views (those on delay vs. those not - or those refreshed, etc) leads me to think the issues are the streaming service.
11:18:48 <Katie> Except, we do lose cam control, too. Nevermind.
11:19:10 <Katie> I saw 30 seconds or so of Grand, maybe more, before it froze.
11:19:14 <ynpvisitor999®> back for me
11:20:08 <Dave from B™> I hope CraigC is there
11:20:57 <ynpvisitor46> Steve posted Turban yet not Grand
11:21:45 <Dave from B™> That's a big Turban
11:21:53 <Katie> Maybe he's waiting until he has timed it all, etc.
11:21:58 <Dave from B™> Probably enjoying the eruption
11:22:08 <Katie> or that :)
11:22:08 <ynpvisitor6> These short 5+hour intervals are crazy.
11:22:38 <Eric> and frozen
11:22:58 <Eric> Someone warming up their lunch at the ranger station....
11:23:22 <ynpvisitor6> Power bump?
11:23:33 <Eric> microwaves can interfere with wifi
11:24:00 <Eric> apparently they can make Jarno quit too :-P
11:24:12 <Eric> Your wifi is bad Jarno
11:24:39 <Katie> Sure they CAN, but if it was a consistent issue, I'd have constant alarms on my screen (we monitor status of every customer's WiMAX link to us).
11:24:59 <Eric> Do you use 5ghz Katie?
11:25:32 <Eric> and do you have a communications carrier microwave dish pointing at one of your wifi devices?
11:26:21 <Eric> also, wimax uses 2.5 and 5.8 ghz, which is not the same frequency as standard wifi
11:26:49 <Eric> and not the same as microwave ovens luckily
11:27:18 <Eric> 2.5 & 3.5, not 5.8
11:27:22 <Dave from B™> ERic, can you bring about a 1/4 mile of cable with you so we can fix this problem?:)
11:27:35 <Dave from B™> And a really tall laddre
11:27:50 <Eric> I could dave...but they might get upset about blue cable running through the parking lot :-P
11:28:22 <Dave from B™> We'll put black tape over it...they'll never see it:)
11:28:35 <Eric> Perfect!
11:28:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Coat it in green camo.
11:29:05 <Eric> I vote for Katie to contract with YNP and get a good wimax setup done from the cam to the ranger station!
11:29:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Well we got most of Grand
11:29:27 <Katie> Yup, mostly 5.8 these days - some 5.2 and some 3.65 - for subscriber modules which are in a point to multi-point system. Backhauls are point to point. I would expect the link between the cam and the router is point to point - which are (usually) less susceptible to RF interference.
11:29:33 <Eric> They should just hire your company for end to end service of the webcam!
11:30:04 <Katie> I can dispatch my boss with an order. ;)
11:30:04 <Eric> Stop trying to deploy/maintain themselves
11:30:25 <Eric> You guys do it professional, you are relatively local!
11:30:36 <Eric> what more could the park service ask for?
11:30:56 <Eric> Give you excuses to go to the park
11:31:18 <Dave from B™> Katie, Sat or Sunday would be a good day:)
11:31:23 <Katie> He's the field tech. I monitor, do tech support, provisioning, manage the mail and web servers, etc. - and dispatch him when physical hands-on is required in the field. He also builds and maintains the network. I monitor & troubleshoot.
11:31:30 <Eric> Makes sense that you are using 5.8 Katie as you don't need a license for it :-D
11:32:02 <Eric> 2.5 & 3.5 wimax both need licenses
11:33:39 <Katie> Our backhauls are on licensed frequencies, as are the 3.65 subscriber modules (3.5 range). Turns out that the FCC doing frequency coordination isn't any better than the local competitors/users doing it among ourselves. We've had more interference on license frequencies - and all the bureuacracy.
11:34:44 <ynpvisitor6> No GT post for Grand yet.
11:35:26 <Eric> Interesting that 3.5 range also overlaps with amatuer radios
11:35:36 <Eric> Make it so #6
11:40:01 <ynpvisitor43> Not much action from Grotto so far today
11:42:20 <ynpvisitor68> Hows the cam been this morning?
11:42:26 <ynpvisitor68> Of
11:42:34 <ynpvisitor999®> drop-out, drop-in, repeat
11:42:57 <LindaG> There ya go
11:43:06 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Linda
11:43:15 <ynpvisitor43> Frozen of
11:43:17 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, hi jarno
11:44:48 <LindaG> Dave from B, congrats! So was steamboat everything you'd thought it would be
11:57:17 <Dave from B™> Linda, it was terrific:)
11:57:49 <LindaG> Dave from B™, that's good we were all rooting for you!
11:58:45 <Dave from B™> Thanks. I appreciate all the congrats. I just hope everyone who wants to catch it has the opportunity to.
11:59:16 <LindaG> 👍 well the curse is broken hehe
12:00:45 <ynpvisitor999®> so far it seems my first opportunity for catching SB is some 3-4 years away :(
12:03:18 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, ☹
12:04:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Seen SB's past active phases, I don't think it'll be active 3-4 years from now, but on the other hand, it has survived two disturbances and both didn't seem to lengthen its interval considerably, if that. It might even be that SB now needs disturbances to keep going
12:04:41 <ynpvisitor96> Dave, what´s that in your face?
12:05:03 <Dave from B™> It's not egg:)
12:05:11 <ynpvisitor96> Oh, wait. It´s a BIG GRIN :-D
12:05:42 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
12:05:43 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
12:05:48 <Betty> Woot Woot Woot Woot Woot
12:05:50 <Dave from B™> Yep end to end smile today
12:06:18 <Betty> congrats! on your first attempt this year
12:06:20 <Dave from B™> What a rock thrower
12:06:40 <Dave from B™> Thanks
12:06:47 <Betty> so you liked it?
12:07:15 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:07:52 <Dave from B™> I think I even liked it more than the eclipse
12:10:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't take as long to get home after this one.
12:11:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't take as long to get home this time.
12:11:16 <Kevin L™🌵> .
12:11:49 <Kevin L™🌵> .
12:12:35 <Kevin L™🌵> .
12:12:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't take as long to get home this time dave.
12:13:17 <ynpvisitor999®> AB
12:13:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> I bet Dave is enjoying seeing the seismo trace now rather than growling at it
12:16:44 <Dave from B™> Kevin, it didn't
12:17:20 <Dave from B™> I'm thinking of a photo collage with a Seismo footprint to put in my home office as a reminder
12:18:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> :) when is your next attempt?
12:19:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat note 0646: "Arrived at steamboat 645. It is in the steam phase. Cistern is about 4 feet down from the top. Runoff Channals have small amounts of water in them milky in color. All of the decks were total ice for about 1/8 of a mile from steamboat. Most of the ice had melted off by 0745."
12:21:10 <Dave from B™> That's a post from Roy from Idaho Falls. He got hooked last fall and he has seen the last 2
12:21:38 <ynpvisitor86> Wonder why he said the eruption started at 1755?
12:22:13 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe his clock is behind 2 hours, or a bad series of typos
12:22:18 <ynpvisitor86> Typo? Yet his statement before said 1700’s too
12:22:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> 7:55
12:22:59 <Dave from B™> typo...The euforia was amazing. I even forgot to press star on my video for the first few minors
12:23:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> steve should change his entry and add maj
12:23:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> of course Dave could enter it too ....
12:23:18 <ynpvisitor86> If he’s from Idaho Falls... oh yes, the 24 hr clock got him
12:23:27 <Casey> Congrats, Dave!!!
12:23:35 <Dave from B™> Thanks Casey
12:23:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt even try to video them .. my hands were shaking and i was looking all over the place
12:24:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> its amazing that people got such good video
12:24:33 <Dave from B™> I thought I wuld cry but that didn't happen. I just stood there and hugged the railing the whole time
12:24:37 <Casey> I was so nervous you would have had to leave early for some reason
12:25:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Looks like Artemisia steam - 1213 ie in-basin
12:25:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> me too as it was getting late ... but as it wasnt dark i figured you would still b there
12:26:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> are you going back before MD or the week after?
12:28:46 <Dave from B™> GS, I'm not sure. We have a wedding to get ready for. It seems I want to see it even more than before:)
12:29:17 <Dave from B™> I did set a record 2hr58 min to Norris from my house...no speeding, either
12:29:22 <Betty> was just reading the log, amazing. I feel so happy for you, Dave
12:29:44 <Kevin L™🌵> The wedding or the geyser Dave?
12:31:17 <Betty> Kevin, you are a quitter today
12:32:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Page does seem to hate me.
12:35:45 <ynpvisitor999®> the page doesn't like me either
12:36:49 <Betty> you are all quitters
12:40:22 <Dave from B™> haha Graham. THE GEYSER
12:41:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Will Becca come the next time or is she really the curse?
12:44:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Some Castle jetting
12:50:41 <Dave from B™> Becca will be going the next time. She starts work at the baseball field in the middle of June so she will feel the pressure to get it before than
12:51:31 <Dave from B™> It took me 10 years to see F&M and then I got it twice in the same year on secutive trips
12:51:39 <Dave from B™> consecutive*
12:53:39 <Katie> out to lunch
12:58:19 <Joe> HEY Dave YEA!!! STEAMBOAT DAVE!!!
12:59:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dave is very popular today
12:59:19 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe!
12:59:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> is that his new name, STEAMBOAT Dave
12:59:26 <Dave from B™> I'm on Cloud 9 today
13:00:02 <Dave from B™> Runoff channels were crazy
13:00:11 <Joe> ASs far as the camera goes looks like whoever operates the disturbance machine is at lunch
13:00:39 <Joe> Very Glad for you Dave!!
13:04:12 <ynpvisitor999®> how about "Dave 'Steamboat' S"? :D
13:04:35 <Joe> that fits :)
13:11:08 <Joe> The camera Ddisturbance machine operator is back from lunch!!!
13:11:58 <Joe> They should be able to figure this out!!
13:12:28 <Dave from B™> It is going to be a LONG year. I'm predicting a 3rd camera position for the cam this year
13:14:06 <Joe> I have been watching and seeing when the camera goes down and comes back up, there is a pattern
13:15:25 <Dave from B™> NPS may like a report from you Joe
13:16:03 <Dave from B™> I can see the headline now
13:16:11 <ynpvisitor79> do you think it is in basin interference Joe?
13:16:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Must have come bacl
13:16:27 <Dave from B™> NPS staffer's popcorn addiction is the culprit behind cam issues
13:16:35 <ynpvisitor79> my stream is very choppy, like watching static frames
13:17:47 <ynpvisitor79> oh, we missed OF
13:18:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto Fountain 1314
13:18:07 <ynpvisitor79> no need to stay on it
13:18:34 <ynpvisitor79> stupid person with dog off bw
13:19:52 <ynpvisitor79> so many people walk off bw to the left of that sidewalk to the Inn
13:20:05 <ynpvisitor999®> SGF 1318
13:20:34 <ynpvisitor27> can we see the grotto start?
13:20:39 <ynpvisitor79> let's see what their steam looks like, oh, too late
13:20:47 <ynpvisitor79> Grotto start 1319
13:21:01 <ynpvisitor79> I guess we have no cam op
13:21:49 <ynpvisitor79> that SUV off bw the other day sure made a mess
13:22:23 <Dave from B™> OF is still due
13:22:32 <ynpvisitor79> it's past Dave
13:22:40 <ynpvisitor79> look at OF prediction from NPS
13:22:46 <ynpvisitor79> and NO PEOPLE
13:22:48 <Dave from B™> it's not on GT. What time did it erupt?
13:23:04 <ynpvisitor79> NPS does not post, yet they update their predictions
13:23:19 <Dave from B™> Thanks
13:23:27 <ynpvisitor79> aren't you the one that says " go by the people indicators?"
13:23:53 <Dave from B™> I wasn't the author of that stmt but it is a reliable indicator:)
13:24:05 <ynpvisitor79> I agree
13:24:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
13:24:37 <ynpvisitor79> yeah, for cam moving just in time
13:26:24 <ynpvisitor79> Dave, you didn't see Gordon Bower at SB? He had been posting in basin times
13:26:50 <Joe> I have emailed the responsible people at math about the Camera pattern and what they should be on the lookout for, I do think it has something to do with operations at theINN or (ranger Station) where the end of the radio link is I think
13:27:01 <Dave from B™> I heard he was over at Decker Island. I;ve never met him
13:27:20 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe
13:27:25 <Joe> My bte is operations at the INN
13:27:33 <Joe> bet*
13:27:43 <ynpvisitor79> I thought router was at Ranger Station
13:27:56 <Joe> math= Mammoth*
13:28:03 <ynpvisitor79> thanks Dave, I bet he was trying to figure the height
13:28:40 <Dave from B™> We were wishing he had stayed around. Beverlys said it was the tallest they had seen from Emerald
13:28:58 <ynpvisitor79> so you saw bears in the dark on the way home?
13:29:10 <Joe> Yes router is at ranger station as is the end of the radio link, I have not confirmed this
13:29:39 <ynpvisitor79> I hope they can get it figured out soon Joe, thanks for all your analysis
13:30:38 <Dave from B™> It wasn't quite dark. I only saw sow and 2 cubs but I was in a hurry
13:31:39 <Joe> yw, now that ihave an always on recording system I can see the dropouts instantly and the cam up with an error of 1 minute max
13:31:50 <Dave from B™> And the frog were croaking like mad ialong the Gibbon near the CG
13:33:10 <ynpvisitor79> where would you have slept Dave, had it not gone off?
13:33:11 <Joe> cam this time has been up since 1316
13:34:24 <Dave from B™> Gardiner...most likely Yellowstone River Inn or Hillcrest
13:37:58 <ynpvisitor79> So glad you did not miss it heading to a hotel
13:39:18 <Joe> Well the Wizards have ordered more tests to see if the knee can be safely worked on so...more delays, but that is better than plowing ahead and losing the leg or more :)
13:39:46 <Kevin L™🌵> True
13:41:49 <Dave from B™> 79, that would have been awful since I would have had internet
13:42:09 <Joe> This knee business started Feb. 2016 and I hope it is resolved before 2020
13:42:47 <Dave from B™> Wow..that's a long time. I hope you can have the work done
13:43:47 <Dave from B™> FYI, Norris CG opens Friday
13:43:54 <Kevin L™🌵> There would have been two steam phases Dave.
13:46:21 <ynpvisitor79> what is CG?
13:46:27 <ynpvisitor79> oh, the campground, sorry
13:46:57 <Joe> Dave when it started I got to spend 3 months in a nursing home in your fair city, the people at Billings clinic saved my life after being air lifted in.
13:49:09 <Dave from B™> Kevin, yes...2 steam phases is not good:)
13:49:26 <Dave from B™> Joe, I didn't realize that is what started your fun
13:58:23 <Dave from B™> It's one thing to be in the park when it erupts. It's another to actually be on the platform. If you are staying 45 minutes away and like 8 hours of sleep, that is 9.5 hours out of 24 that you aren't there (40% of the day)
13:59:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> so stay at SB
14:00:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> just not allowed to sleep
14:00:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Or eat
14:01:53 <Dave from B™> Eating is while you're driving or on the platform
14:02:14 <Dave from B™> I will not sleep on the platform.
14:02:22 <Dave from B™> Even during the day
14:02:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i tried to nap during the day
14:02:59 <Katie> I've slept in tents at Norris CG - so I don't see any reason not to nap on the platform there.
14:03:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> every time i settled down there was a big minor
14:03:32 <Dave from B™> How can you be observant if you're napping:)
14:03:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I can sleep standing up now.
14:03:54 <Dave from B™> I guess you need to know I've napped less than 5 times in my whole life
14:04:31 <Dave from B™> It's Rule 32 in my book
14:05:35 <Katie> If a person were curious, could they find your rules listed?
14:05:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt need to be observant...there were others watching
14:06:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was like the Dave efect, people wanted me to nap so SB would have another good minor
14:06:22 <Katie> Yeah, I don't think it would be possible to sleep through it on the platform.
14:06:31 <Dave from B™> haha...only in my head....I was pulling a Leroy Jethro Gibbs on you there!
14:06:57 <Dave from B™> I wonder if his rules are posted anywhere
14:07:51 <Katie> Gibb's 36 rules: https://www.theodysseyonline.com/life-rules-nciss-leroy-jethro-gibbs
14:10:16 <Dave from B™> Thanks Katie!
14:12:49 <Katie> That means there are 15-16 left to be stated.
14:14:41 <Dave from B™> There's a lot of good shows ending soon
14:17:35 <Kevin L™🌵> That detective movie I told you about is on TCM right now Dave. Another good movie tonight but it is a comedy called The Bride Came C.O.D. with Cagney and Bette Davis.
14:18:15 <Katie> I'm seldom in charge of the TV. I let Matt have the buttons. The other day, from a BBT episode, he was "inspired" to say I'm not a "satisfyzer." I used the fact that we watch cooking shows and stupid cars shows and Ancient Aliens because he has the buttons and I'm a "satisfyzer" to prove my point.
14:18:49 <Dave from B™> haha Katie
14:18:55 <Katie> None of those shows are even on if he's not home (in fact, the TV is seldom on if he's not home).
14:19:07 <Katie> *ever on, not even
14:19:23 <Dave from B™> Yeah, we are actually trying to watch less but if we're tired, it turns on
14:19:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the old B&W movies. They cannot depend on special effects.
14:20:00 <Katie> My husband will literally turn on the TV the moment he walks in the door, before even taking off his coat or whatever - it's like it's an emergency.
14:23:44 <Katie> I am going to miss having new BBT episodes, speaking of shows coming to an end.
14:24:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't watch much new stuff. NCIS isn't as good as it used to be. The only reality shows I like are Deadliest Catch and Amazing Race.
14:28:15 <Dave from B™> It is harder and harder to find good shows these days if you don't like sci fi
14:28:58 <ynpvisitor19> Our public library has a great selection of videos.
14:30:13 <Joe> cam dpown
14:30:17 <LindaG> Dave from B™, did you ever watch Longmire on netflix?
14:31:06 <Dave from B™> No...my wife isn't a Western fan.
14:31:33 <Katie> LindaG, have you read the Longmire books?
14:31:59 <LindaG> Katie, no i didnt.
14:32:23 <LindaG> LindaG, r they good?
14:32:27 <Katie> They are even better than the TV series, which is darn good - and different.
14:32:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Another good one I noticed on H&I on Saturdays is Martial Law. Has a Chinese cop working with LAPD teamed with Arsenio Hall.
14:32:54 <Joe> Ditto
14:33:03 <LindaG> Yeah it's not exactly a western, but its set in the west
14:34:51 <LindaG> I enjoyed the kominsky method on netflix
14:35:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket
14:35:46 <Joe> nice
14:35:48 <Dave from B™> It looked like 2 separate columns for a omment
14:35:57 <Casey> Nice. We can see water from Rocket?
14:35:57 <Kevin L™🌵> You can see the 2 columns
14:35:59 <ynpvisitor27> cool. we can see Rocket!
14:36:20 <ynpvisitor999®> now that's cool
14:36:41 <Casey> I know there have been several downsides, but these new angles are fun.
14:37:29 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize we had such a great shot of the Grand neches
14:38:00 <Teri> I was about to ask what was steaming to the "left" of Grand - Grotto complex, cool
14:39:14 <Kevin L™🌵> They should have that open by Memorial Day weekend.
14:40:51 <ynpvisitor999®> it's now actually settling on me that a geyser of some 50 feet tops (probably what Rocket just did) is actually quite tall compared to the average tree height
14:44:18 <Kent> It's time Fluff!
14:46:18 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
14:46:41 <Dave from B™> Time for what should be my final appt with my shoulder surgeon. Go Giantess.
14:46:52 <ynpvisitor999®> good luck
14:47:05 <Joe> good luck Dave
14:49:16 <Kent> Sunday I had focus on Fluffs crater even in poor light. A bit strange.
14:49:34 <Kent> '
14:51:22 <LindaG> Elkfest in Jackson Hole this weekend. Anyone want antlers?
14:52:09 <Kevin L™🌵> They make good pens but smell worse than the hole by F&M.
14:52:36 <LindaG> Kent, hi
14:53:14 <LindaG> Yeah I guess heat from body would make them smell
14:58:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I am talking about when I turn them. :P Depot stinks for a week.
15:05:49 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, oh! Hehe
15:07:29 <LindaG> The Jackson hole webcam shows the antlers and people, fun to watch for a while
15:08:12 <LindaG> Our webcam seems a little better today
15:08:37 <Kevin L™🌵> It has had a few bumps
15:10:32 <LindaG> Bulger
15:11:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off. Hve fun watching Grotto
15:11:36 <LindaG> Night jarno
15:13:15 <Eric> and down
15:16:31 <Cooper> Is the cam doing at least a little better than yesterday, or has it been like this all day
15:17:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it has been a bit better
15:38:02 <LindaG> 🙁 Tim Conway passed away today
15:42:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Dropping like flies
15:43:06 <LindaG> He was a funny man
15:44:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> tome for another opera...bye
15:48:24 <Betty> Depression looks full
15:48:58 <Betty> But not in overflow
15:49:49 <Betty> LC
15:57:22 <Betty> Time to get some sleep. Night all
16:02:03 <Dave from B™> ..
16:02:10 <Eric> Night Betty
16:02:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
16:03:21 <Dave from B™> No Fountain today?
16:25:08 <Dave from B™> OF ie
16:25:43 <LindaG> Yay a moving geyser
16:33:42 <Dave from B™> LindaG, are you sure it just isn't the camera moving?:)
16:34:29 <Kevin L™🌵> At least the cam IS moving.
16:34:45 <LindaG> Maybe it's an old recording 😉
16:35:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Possible
16:36:25 <LindaG> Dave from B™, hehe not sure of anything
16:36:37 <Joe> Well...the camera has been up since 1532 has the camera disturbance machine operator gone home for the day?
16:37:06 <LindaG> Haha let's hope so
16:37:14 <Dave from B™> It seems he didn't come back after lunch
16:38:27 <Dave from B™> There is still a park worker that almost 350 hours at Sb with no eruption. He missed yesterday by about 2-3 hours
16:38:48 <Katie> Ouch!
16:38:52 <Joe> I t has been up and down 16 times since 1311 when they came back from lunch
16:38:53 <LindaG> New cam to watch, Glacier has a Robin's nest Cam
16:39:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Big herd heading to Castle.
16:40:00 <Katie> that is quite the herd
16:40:16 <Joe> wow a copule of busses full
16:41:38 <Kevin L™🌵> So how is the shoulder Dave?
16:42:55 <Dave from B™> I'm fully released. They said I could go back to my Wrestling career right away
16:43:44 <Joe> That is Great!!!
16:43:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice.
16:44:09 <Dave from B™> Yep...one to breaking something else!
16:44:12 <Dave from B™> on*
16:44:15 <Joe> hmmm...sounds like Tony the Tiger :)
16:44:32 <Dave from B™> haha
16:48:08 <ynpvisitor43> No daisy yet
16:48:45 <Dave from B™> That's odd
16:49:10 <Joe> Do not expect Daisy until ~1755 or so
16:49:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Could have gone during OF
16:49:42 <Joe> Last expected daisy was ~ 1544
16:50:28 <LindaG> Must have been watching little cub 😉
16:51:08 <Joe> 5h 35 min since last Grand
16:53:08 <Joe> I wish the predictions were basedGrand
16:53:17 <LindaG> Grand
16:53:18 <Joe> Grand
16:53:55 <Joe> were dynamicaly based on the last five eruptions
16:53:58 <LindaG> . .
16:55:00 <Kevin L™🌵> You can see Steve's cookies from here.
16:55:19 <Dave from B™> Joe, that would be great 3,4 or 5 would be great. I do that when I'm in the basin. I don't use NPS or GT predictions
16:55:41 <Joe> Yes, Dave did steve have cookies at SB
16:55:45 <Dave from B™> Yum. I had about 5 of those yesterday:)
16:56:03 <Joe> ah!
16:56:05 <Dave from B™> He had chocolate chip, ginger snaps and oatmeal date
16:56:15 <Dave from B™> oatmeal were really good
16:57:02 <Joe> sounds like some happy bellys at SB yesterday :)
16:57:06 <LindaG> Nice grand
16:57:23 <Dave from B™> They were small:)
16:57:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I like oatmeal date
16:58:28 <Joe> I'm glat its almost supper time :)
16:58:37 <Joe> glad*
17:00:06 <ynpvisitor43> what geyser is steaming behind and to the left of grand?
17:00:23 <Eric> 8m
17:00:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Grotto

17:00:36 <ynpvisitor43> so where is Giant?
17:00:38 <Joe> sorry Eric
17:00:42 <Eric> behind grand
17:01:47 <Joe> I look at keyboard and type
17:02:06 <Joe> pause
17:02:16 <ynpvisitor43> So the geyser just behind the first set of trees to the left is Grotto, correct?
17:02:20 <Eric> So it's interesting that the last couple steamboats definitely had blips on the porkchop/constant graphs ~24 prior to eruption
17:02:27 <Dave from B™> You can see Bijou going in the Giant group
17:02:41 <Eric> 2nd

18:31:02 <LindaGp> Good. They have to figure something out. Thanks joe.
18:31:35 <Joe> Just keeping track of this stuff is tiring, I can imagine how frustrated the daytime camops must feel.
18:32:48 <LindaGp> Yeah not looking forward to Friday shift
18:33:11 <Joe> Next Daisy ~2010
18:33:24 <LindaGp> I don't know if cam would come back online without an operator refreshing it.
18:33:34 <LindaGp> Ok on daisy
18:34:44 <Joe> It comes back on its own for the public view it is the control that needs to be reconnected
18:35:30 <LindaGp> Oh ok
18:35:51 <Joe> I can see exactly when it goes down and within 1 minute of when it comes back up
18:39:18 <Joe> I have a script that runs checking good data and indicates bad (cam down) immediately then checks for good data and restarts thr recording again

20:06:29 <Kevin L™🌵> How was touring?
20:06:33 <CraigC> did anyone see me waving at BH this morning?

20:07:07 <CraigC> 6 grizzlies
20:07:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't notice while it was going but will check replay.
20:07:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Where did you go?
20:08:00 <CraigC> I think I waved first during indicator, then maybe again as it was winding down
20:08:34 <CraigC> we saw a pair of bears right by Biscuit, then sow and 3 cubs by Roaring Mtn, sames ones as last night
20:08:36 <LindaGp> I missed bee today
