04:34:17 <LindaGt> Good morning Joe
04:36:06 <ynpvisitor30> hi Linda
04:37:11 <ynpvisitor30> camera has been up and down all night
04:42:54 <LindaGt>
04:43:03 <LindaGt> It was a good run
04:44:54 <LindaGt> Same as last problem? Or different? Just curious
04:45:43 <ynpvisitor30> seems different
04:47:41 <ynpvisitor30> at least early on, but this morning I'm not sure
04:47:42 <LindaGt> Seems like it's down quite a while. Ok I'll be here watching...waiting. 😉
04:50:12 <ynpvisitor30> the few geysers that I posted were when cam came up then back down, no start or stop
04:51:05 <ynpvisitor30> all ie no duration
04:53:14 <LindaGt> Better than nothing. Was it how many geysers can you dig NJ in 20 seconds? 😊
04:53:48 <LindaGt> *Can you find in
04:56:17 <ynpvisitor30> yes
05:09:14 <LindaGt> Yay
05:09:38 <LindaGt> Still cant see anything. What a world, what a world
05:39:06 <CraigC(3)> hey Linda
05:39:14 <CraigC(3)> hye Joe
05:40:01 <CraigC(3)> Grand had 5 yesterday, right?
05:49:54 <LindaGt> CraigC(3), good morning
05:51:00 <LindaGt> Looks like it may hr ave been 5. I know they were waiting last night.
05:51:20 <ynpvisitor88> 5 on GT
05:51:58 <ynpvisitor88> lovely weather
05:52:26 <ynpvisitor88> elk on electric peak cam
05:53:06 <Joe> Hi Craig, yes a 5:grand: day
05:53:17 <CraigC(3)> :thumbsup:
05:53:42 <CraigC(3)> early risers for OF, good job people making the most of your day
05:56:58 <Joe> Looks like no Castle yet
05:57:31 <LindaGt> Looks pretty now
05:57:45 <CraigC(3)> hey Graham
05:57:58 <LindaGt> Morning
05:58:02 <CraigC(3)> OF
05:58:31 <LindaGt> Im so delayed
05:58:40 <GO GOGGLE (5)> morning ... countdown getting serious now
05:59:13 <CraigC(3)> wow, Joe, your new little buddy hasn't entered this OF yet
05:59:55 <Joe> Yes :) my follower
06:00:11 <CraigC(3)> ;)
06:00:59 <GO GOGGLE (5)> I thought Eric was down to 4 today ....... did he nap through midnight?
06:01:03 <CraigC(3)> finger on the trigger 20 minutes before eruption
06:01:06 <LindaGt> Not an early riser?
06:03:06 <LindaGt> Lots of doggies
06:03:22 <CraigC(3)> Eric might have been losing in some board game and was too involved to think of Yellowstone
06:03:39 <Joe> I would have thought Eric would make the decreasing number automatic :)
06:03:45 <CraigC(3)> LOL
06:03:49 <ynpvisitor23> lol
06:04:00 <GO GOGGLE (5)> haha Joe he should
06:04:07 <CraigC(3)> and by decimals to the 10th digit
06:04:12 <GO GOGGLE (5)> maybe he is delaying arrival due to SB and weather
06:04:31 <GO GOGGLE (5)> at this rate we may still be waiting for it when i get there
06:04:51 <GO GOGGLE (5)> hope not tho, its still only 6+ days
06:05:19 <CraigC(3)> the 2 reports were a little interesting
06:05:38 <LindaGt> Look out by grand looks steamy
06:06:05 <GO GOGGLE (5)> didnt want to pick GO SB (5) because that may confuse it into thinking it needs to erupt in 5 days from now
06:06:29 <GO GOGGLE (5)> they seemed to conflict a bit, but it could go at any time ... or not
06:06:45 <CraigC(3)> yup
06:07:39 <CraigC(3)> can we say "blue balled" in here?
06:08:31 <LindaGt> Joe, can I take cam?
06:08:41 <Joe> From the few times the cam was up last night, I did not see evidence of Castle, I did see what may have been the end of Grand at 0413 but the cam had just had come back up. may have been area steam? So we may see Castel if not snowed out
06:10:13 <CraigC(3)> dang, cam is going down at night, too? I thought the suspicion was a conflict of signals during work hours in the park
06:11:19 <CraigC(3)> just noticed that the parking is completely full compared to yesterday
06:13:51 <GO GOGGLE (5)> that would have been early for Grand to be finishing, would be under 5h
06:14:41 <GO GOGGLE (5)> not sure if Inn was sold out last week ... probably is now till end of Sept
06:15:07 <GO GOGGLE (5)> you get some variability depending on the number of tour busses
06:15:22 <LindaGt> Ok got the cam
06:15:33 <GO GOGGLE (5)> 1 tour bus = 40 cars or so
06:15:43 <CraigC(3)> good point
06:16:02 <CraigC(3)> you're pretty smart for a 5
06:16:27 <GO GOGGLE (5)> at least 20 anyway assumin 40 peeps and 2 per car
06:17:07 <GO GOGGLE (5)> haha ..... geyser brain will be confused on Sat ....... steam clouds always take a while to figure out in basin ... and my prediction meter gets messed up
06:17:21 <Joe> Yes Graham that would be early and why I did not post, lousy viewing night with the cam being down so much.
06:17:36 <GO GOGGLE (5)> i guess its easy if we just sit at SB all day and watch Eric running laps
06:18:29 <CraigC(3)> this current interval worries me that I may not get a window on this trip
06:19:35 <CraigC(3)> we decided Thursday thru Sunday to be travelling a day off from most the Utah people using holiday time
06:20:19 <GO GOGGLE (5)> still early as i tell people, but it has been primed to erupt for longer than usual now
06:21:00 <ynpvisitor69> Raising the flag I think
06:21:07 <Joe> Flag going up
06:21:31 <GO GOGGLE (5)> Thu thru Thu would be better :)
06:21:48 <Joe> spin around and look at feet
06:21:57 <CraigC(3)> GO GOGGLE (5), I'm the only retired one of the 3 going :)
06:22:19 <LindaGp> Missed them
06:22:29 <Joe> gone
06:22:52 <CraigC(3)> morning Squatch
06:23:39 <LindaGp> Good morning s
06:23:41 <Joe> hi Squach
06:23:51 <GO GOGGLE (5)> here in DC area the Thu rush will be bad .. with peeps leaving early + work rush
06:23:53 <LindaGp> Snowy squatch
06:24:05 <GO GOGGLE (5)> sometimes its worse than Friday as a lot will take off
06:24:39 <Joe> circle of buf
06:24:42 <CraigC(3)> I took pics from behind the Inn with my zoom lens.... I won't even share, because it shows Squatch in bad form
06:24:43 <GO GOGGLE (5)> i wont hit much traffic at 0500 heading for the airport Sat
06:26:29 <Joe> There is LC :)
06:27:27 <LindaGp> Where? Where is LC?. LOL.
06:27:32 <LindaGp> I'll wnter
06:28:10 <Joe> you could enter also
06:28:25 <Joe> :)
06:28:26 <CraigC(3)> ;)
06:29:07 <LindaGp> 😊
06:35:37 <LindaGp> Ok so the cam is on my tablet, the chat board on my phone. I think I need a third device for facebook. Do you think that means I have a problem?
06:37:30 <CraigC(3)> I thought you had problems even before you shared that
06:38:04 <LindaGp> Lol nice!
06:39:45 <CraigC(3)> LindaGp, :)
06:40:16 <LindaGp> Left myself wide open for that 😅
06:48:31 <LindaGp> Looks like marmot is still splashing
06:57:33 <ynpvisitorCC> morning all
06:57:48 <ynpvisitorCC> snow here in Rapid City this morning

07:44:46 <LindaGp> Chancellor, hi
07:44:55 <CraigC(3)> hey Chancellor
07:49:32 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC, Linda
07:49:46 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I prefer SB Dave:)
07:52:13 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B™, but you didn't go to SB yesterday and stay over night
07:52:36 <Dave from B™> Becuase, I knew it wasn't going to erupt:D:D
07:52:46 <CraigC(3)> touche'
07:52:58 <Dave from B™> Do you have winter gear packed for your trip?
07:53:11 <CraigC(3)> I will :(
07:53:43 <CraigC(3)> yesterday was the anniversary of getting hailed and rained on at SB
07:54:09 <GO GOGGLE (5)> shouldn't his nick be Dave Broke SB?
07:54:41 <GO GOGGLE (5)> must be tough watching there with this weather
07:55:03 <Dave from B™> I expect it today.
07:56:26 <LindaGp> I think castle is ie
07:56:51 <LindaGp> So hard to see
07:58:19 <LindaGp> All i see is steam
07:58:36 <CraigC(3)> same
07:59:01 <LindaGp> So I either missed water phase or its just steaming
08:04:34 <LindaGp> I entered castle ie with explanation
08:07:47 <Dave from B™> Joe has the start at 754
08:10:53 <Joe> Castle was "puffing" earlier but did not see start until 0754
08:12:26 <LindaGp> Ok ill change mine
08:13:27 <Joe> Take another look please, trying to determine if major
08:14:05 <Joe> back up a bit
08:14:25 <Joe> major
08:14:32 <Joe> Thanks
08:14:55 <LindaGp> It had to have started even before 7:54
08:16:05 <LindaGp> I never saw water
08:16:19 <Joe> I've looked at my recording there was "quiet" at 0753
08:17:57 <LindaGp> Ok my first comment was at 07:56
08:24:59 <LindaGp> Bee in the snow would be fun
08:31:52 <LindaGp> Bubblers
08:32:24 <Rice> I just noticed we have Steamboat data again from Norris Loggers, Thanks Bill
08:34:42 <Eric (5)> Morning
08:36:32 <Dave from B™> Mornign Eric
08:36:54 <Dave from B™> It's been so long. Thanks for the info Rice. How do we even read the SAB logger? Does it show minors?
08:36:54 <LindaGp> Good morning
08:38:45 <Eric (5)> Hi Dave & Linda
08:39:56 <Eric (5)> No Steamboat...bummer :-(
08:40:46 <Dave from B™> It will happen today.
08:41:27 <Eric (5)> I hope so Dave...It would line up nicely for an eruption possibly next weekend while I am there
08:42:21 <GO GOGGLE (5)> its Daves fault
08:44:33 <Dave from B™> I'm hoping it goes today so it isn't in my window when I'm there...then we can go hiking and spend some time in UGB
08:45:54 <Eric (5)> :-)
08:46:31 <LindaGp> LC
08:46:33 <GO GOGGLE (5)> thats better Eric
08:48:14 <LindaGp> Bubblers
08:49:22 <Eric (4)> We are talking about leaving late thursday night so we can get there friday morning, but with SB going longer, might not be necessary.
08:49:56 <Joe> Dave that has to be addressed elsewhere :)
08:51:10 <Eric (4)> It's spring in Yellowstone...just blink and the weather will change
08:51:39 <LindaGp> How could you accuse Joe and I of doing a snow dance? We didn't do that right Joe? Hehe 😉
08:52:04 <LindaGp> Looks pretty right now
08:52:16 <CraigC(3)> pretty cold
08:52:28 <Eric (4)> Hi Craig
08:52:30 <Joe> Right we do not have the power :)
08:52:32 <Eric (4)> and Joe
08:52:32 <CraigC(3)> hey Eric
08:52:57 <Eric (4)> looks very humid
08:53:21 <Eric (4)> Geysers in the mist
08:53:53 <Rhodium House> It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
08:54:23 <ynpvisitor104> ...all around the Park...
08:54:28 <LindaGp> 😊🌲
08:55:22 <GO GOGGLE (5)> gates look a bit busier today
08:55:43 <GO GOGGLE (5)> snow on the car coming n thru West
08:55:56 <LindaGp> Coming in by snowmobiles?😉
08:56:51 <Dave from B(9)> Lots of sweatshirts and jackets will be sold in the park today
08:57:14 <GO GOGGLE (5)> soup and hot chocolate
08:58:00 <Eric (4)> Coffee, lot's of warm coffee!
08:58:13 <Dave from B(9)> I wonder if they get more complaints on a day like today about no TV's in the rooms
08:58:34 <GO GOGGLE (5)> they get complaints?
08:58:42 <Eric (4)> I believe I would be comfy at SB on a day like today with my current clothes plan :-D
08:59:01 <LindaGp> Marmot splash
08:59:14 <CraigC(3)> I'd be driving around looking for wildlife on a day like this
08:59:18 <GO GOGGLE (5)> blowing rain and snow.....
08:59:29 <GO GOGGLE (5)> should be good for wildlife
08:59:50 <GO GOGGLE (5)> and planning your hike from the Lodge
08:59:54 <Dave from B(9)> Why...wildlife go hide in this; especially bears
09:00:20 <LindaGp> GO GOGGLE (5), any idea about duration of marmot eruptions. The.last few days it seems to be splashing when I look. I just entered this morning. Is it perpetual?
09:00:24 <GO GOGGLE (5)> YTG saw 9 bears the other day plus lots of other wildlife
09:00:28 <Eric (4)> I would probably bring my mini stove to make hot water for coffee/hot chocolate :-D
09:00:40 <Eric (4)> Wow...9 bears!
09:00:45 <GO GOGGLE (5)> no, marmot lasts maybe a minute or two?
09:01:13 <CraigC(3)> my sister's neighbor in West saw 17 bears one day a week ago
09:01:16 <GO GOGGLE (5)> then it drops well below overflow
09:01:22 <GO GOGGLE (5)> wow
09:01:34 <Eric (4)> I didn't know your sister lived in West Craig!
09:01:44 <CraigC(3)> but with cubs... we saw 6 bears in just two sightings
09:01:54 <GO GOGGLE (5)> did your mom complain that you were hiding the bears from her?
09:02:04 <Eric (4)> haha
09:02:13 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), she and her husband work the summer at an RV site
09:02:40 <Eric (4)> Which one?
09:02:49 <CraigC(3)> Grizzly RV
09:03:03 <Eric (4)> ohh cool...I have stayed there with my RV before. Nice place
09:03:15 <CraigC(3)> too pricey for me, if I take my trailer up, I would try to find a spot at Baker's Hole
09:04:34 <GO GOGGLE (5)> I wonder if they have cancellations and early departures with this lovely weather?
09:05:39 <CraigC(3)> I would guess so
09:06:24 <Eric (4)> I remember last year they had rain/snow predictions for the entire week I was going to be ended up being 70+ degrees while I baked on the SB boardwalk :-P
09:06:28 <CraigC(3)> roaaarrrrr
09:06:39 <Eric (4)> Nice Lion ini
09:06:45 <LindaGp> Lion
09:07:03 <LindaGp> Tryin
09:07:14 <GO GOGGLE (5)> last Mem Day was nice and comfortable weather, cloudy and a few showers
09:07:14 <Eric (4)> typical lion ini eruption
09:07:24 <LindaGp> Cool
09:07:29 <Eric (4)> uhhh, tell that to my sunburns!
09:07:38 <Eric (4)> I baked on that SB platform
09:08:07 <CraigC(3)> we've had Oct visits that were like this, didn't stop us from enjoying the adventure
09:08:41 <Eric (4)> Yep, you just have to be prepared Craig...snow/rain/sun, it's yellowstone
09:09:56 <Dave from B(9)> I like the drier cold of Sept/Oct than wet sold of spring
09:10:49 <Eric (4)> Yes, I would like to take a late fall trip to yellowstone, toward the end of September.
09:11:21 <Eric (4)> But I get to excited and want to be there early too :-P
09:11:41 <ynpvisitor38> OF on static
09:11:54 <LindaGp> I'm there
09:12:16 <CraigC(3)> my daughter and I on May 04;
09:13:07 <LindaGp> No idea when OF started
09:13:21 <Dave from B(9)> Yep. I've had 8" in 1 day on Memorial weekend
09:15:16 <Eric (4)> hold up...thats not you Craig!
09:15:26 <CraigC(3)> ;)
09:15:28 <LindaGp> CraigC(3), can you look on static for OF start?
09:15:57 <CraigC(3)> is this it?
09:15:59 <Eric (4)> 911 or 912 for OF start
09:16:01 <Dave from B(9)> Who is that HGB?
09:16:42 <LindaGp> Ok I have 9:11
09:16:43 <Eric (4)> or maybe 910 :-D
09:17:13 <Eric (4)> I don't's really hard to tell with static as the clock is off and the frames are not captured at any specific point in the minute
09:17:33 <Eric (4)> I think 911 ns is as close as you can get
09:17:37 <CraigC(3)> ie
09:19:16 <Dave from B(9)> It'd great that SB logger is finally working!
09:19:46 <Dave from B(9)> That is just a once a day update?
09:19:46 <LindaGp> Bubbler back
09:20:17 <LindaGp> Eric (4), ok
09:21:16 <ynpvisitor10> I cant see, are there any bubblers on BH
09:22:07 <ynpvisitor10> LC
09:22:32 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor38, thx for alert on OF
09:23:44 <LindaGp> Bee splash
09:24:15 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor10, bubblers are coming and going
09:24:37 <ynpvisitor10> okay so hopefully soon
09:24:47 <LindaGp> Inthink maybe on left of cone, hard to see
09:28:22 <LindaGp> Strangely I can see bubblers from here but up close is harder
09:32:04 <CraigC> does anyone else see an empty name to the right in the column of visitors?
09:33:27 <ynpvisitor1> ugh looks miserable
09:33:52 <Dave from B(9)> I see it...that is a ghost
09:34:06 <CraigC> :-/
09:35:58 <Eric (4)> I see that too Craig...weird
09:36:12 <Eric (4)> They must be using some alternate space characters
09:37:31 <CraigC> alternate space scares me more than ghosts
09:38:28 <CraigC(3)> off trail
09:38:45 <CraigC(3)> pan down
09:39:10 <CraigC(3)> BW violator
09:39:50 <Dave from B(9)> Where? I missed it
09:39:58 <CraigC(3)> this side of river
09:40:42 <CraigC(3)> person took off west by the south platform for Bee
09:45:25 <Casey> Morning
09:46:11 <Eric (4)> Hi Casey
09:48:45 <LindaGp> I miss a lot of steam down basin
09:49:07 <Eric (4)> Is grand ie?
09:49:18 <Joe> NPS has a Grand prediction!
09:49:19 <Eric (4)> timing is right
09:49:33 <Eric (4)> I guess we missed it :-(
09:49:37 <LindaGp> I think it is
09:50:35 <Dave from B(9)> Could be turban
09:50:38 <LindaGp> Ornwas
09:50:42 <LindaGp> Or was
09:51:08 <Joe> Linda, NPS must have picked up their E times and have a prediction of 1115
09:51:20 <LindaGp> Something went off but I just couldn't tell if grand
09:51:43 <LindaGp> Joe, ok
09:52:21 <Joe> that is not to say that this is not an early Grand :)
09:52:25 <LindaGp> Katie will get it then
09:52:33 <Dave from B(9)> So, it was Turban and we should look again in 15-20 minutes
09:53:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Good news: Steamboat's logger seems to be working again
09:53:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
09:53:21 <LindaGp> Ok

09:57:27 <GO GOGGLE (5)> backup building at W Gate ... they are still coming even tho its rain/snow
09:57:30 <Dave from B(9)> Jarno, I've mentioned it twice with no response. Nobody must care?:)
09:57:41 <Joe> Replay showed a Possible Turban at 0944 it was just right of Grand position
09:57:57 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks Joe!
09:58:11 <Eric (4)> Or everyone can see it already and doesn't have much to say until it tells us something useful :-P
09:58:31 <Joe> Well, Off to see the torture wizards :)
09:58:49 <Eric (4)> Good luck Joe
09:59:25 <LindaGp> Joe, bye
10:00:21 <Dave from B(9)> Have fun Joe
10:00:51 <Dave from B(9)> My comment about the logger asked if we can see minors from it. Does anyone remember? When did it go down?
10:03:45 <Katie> Linda - my computer is having “issues.” can you cover for a few minutes?
10:04:27 <LindaGp> Katie, yea
10:05:50 <Eric (4)> image is up for camera reference...thanks Joe!
10:05:53 <Eric (4)>
10:06:13 <Eric (4)> It is linked on the right, but you have to refresh the page so the link updates to the new image location.
10:06:42 <LindaGp> Wow thanks Joe, although you are off being tortured 😊
10:06:43 <Casey> Thanks Joe!
10:07:18 <Katie> Linda, I’m having computer issues. Can you cover for a few minutes?
10:07:23 <ynpvisitor1> How big is that image? Download g really slowly for me
10:07:36 <Eric (4)> But you can now direct new people to that link for easy identification
10:07:51 <Katie> Ah. i see my last query did stick and you already answered. sorry.
10:08:25 <LindaGp> Splash bee
10:08:31 <Eric (4)> it's 1.4MB #1, it would fit on a 3.5" floppy disk!
10:09:05 <Eric (4)> cam down
10:09:10 <GO GOGGLE (5)> thanks for the map. Sawmill is off.....should be right of Sprinklerbelow Oblong?
10:09:14 <LindaGp> Froze
10:09:29 <LindaGp> Katie broke it
10:09:31 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks Graham. I was thinkking the same thing...and NG seems a tad too far right?
10:09:33 <GO GOGGLE (5)> Artie directly above Oblong
10:09:52 <Eric (4)> Good eyes Graham!
10:09:53 <LindaGp> Riverside
10:10:03 <Eric (4)> Should have had him send you the photo for review :-P
10:10:08 <Eric (4)> Right on both accounts
10:10:10 <Dave from B(9)> And, is F&M that far right?
10:10:17 <GO GOGGLE (5)> NG is left of the boardwalk
10:11:16 <GO GOGGLE (5)> not sure F&M, I know its right of Grand
10:11:25 <Eric (4)> Yikes....poor Joe :-( He will update it on his return.
10:11:36 <LindaGp> Roze
10:11:37 <Eric (4)> We need to see an F&M here!
10:11:43 <LindaGp> Froze
10:12:15 <LindaGp> Up
10:12:24 <Eric (4)> I actually think F&M is slightly more to the right
10:13:26 <fishynp> FYI, We will be giving a public lecture on Yellowstone in West Yellowstone Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM in the Holiday Inn if anyone is in the area and is interested.
10:14:34 <GO GOGGLE (5)> F&M is the only big thing there, well maybe Link too, so it should be easy to tell .. as long as its not too close to Riverside
10:14:38 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks
10:15:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Are Grotto and Rocket reversed on the photo?
10:16:34 <GO GOGGLE (5)> not sure, have not seen one to tell
10:16:36 <LindaGp> Froze
10:17:26 <LindaGp> Cams back to its old tricks again
10:17:46 <Eric (4)> Thanks fishynp...don't get in until Friday :-( Glad steamboat is finally up and running too!
10:17:57 <LindaGp> Back up
10:19:05 <Eric (4)> I assume F&M will look much bigger than a Riverside...but maybe that is a bad assumption.
10:19:14 <Dave from B(9)> Yes, Rocket is right of Grotto
10:19:18 <GO GOGGLE (5)> GH picture could do with being further right to get Dome, Anemone, and Improbable
10:20:15 <Eric (4)> It includes those Graham
10:20:28 <Eric (4)> zoom out or scroll right maybe?
10:21:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Use the bottom bar Graham.
10:21:13 <Lori S> Morning to all.
10:21:20 <GO GOGGLE (5)> ah, i thought had fit in the window ..... but i see them now
10:21:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
10:21:42 <LindaGp> Lori S, hi
10:21:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it is those 5 hour operas Eric.
10:22:45 <Eric (4)> Hi Lori
10:23:11 <Lori S> Hi Kevin, Linda, Eric
10:23:30 <Eric (4)> I hope you didn't sit at SB all day yesterday.
10:23:43 <Lori S> Did anyone else find RMichaels revised GT post entertaining? ;)
10:24:29 <Lori S> Eric, no, I didn't go. Took the chance and when I saw RMichaels "pause" note, I was glad I stayed home.
10:25:24 <Eric (4)> haha...was that your Woo exclamation on Saturday?
10:25:41 <Eric (4)> Lion tryin
10:25:51 <Lori S> No. Haven't gone since I saw my last major start. :O
10:26:00 <Eric (4)> ahhh
10:26:09 <Lori S> Life and all
10:26:43 <Lori S> I guess I'm a "fair weather gazer."
10:26:44 <Eric (4)> :thumbsup:
10:27:06 <Eric (4)> Hey, you live near the park and have seen SB already, you can be choosy now :-D
10:27:17 <Lori S> LMAO
10:27:40 <Lori S> Still, I would like to have seen Cistern yesterday.
10:29:26 <Lori S> Saw :sb: twice, waiting on a sunny day. Or a clear night with a full moon. (prepares to be pummeled)
10:29:33 <Katie2> Lion
10:29:37 <ynpvisitor100> Hmm wondering if that really was grand earlier
10:30:08 <Eric (4)> Timing was right for it 100
10:30:41 <LindaGt> I could enter with ? So we have an idea
10:32:19 <Eric (4)> I saw no I couldn't say either way
10:32:28 <Eric (4)> could have been turban or grand
10:33:17 <LindaGt> Ok
10:33:36 <Betty> Lion
10:34:05 <Betty> morning all
10:34:08 <Katie2> Lion started a 10:29
10:34:30 <Betty> thx Katie2
10:38:32 <LindaGt> Bees been looking hot.
10:39:37 <LindaGt> Enjoy I'll be back for bee, hopefully
10:40:04 <Betty> hi and bye Linda
10:40:25 <LindaGt> Betty, hi and bye 😊
10:40:55 <LindaGt> Katie do you need lion entered?
10:41:23 <LindaGt> Guess not
10:42:19 <Betty> I just saw it was not in, so I entered it
10:42:31 <Katie2> Thanks, Betty
10:42:33 <Lori S> Hi Betty
10:42:38 <Betty> yw
10:42:46 <Betty> hi Lori S
10:44:51 <Eric (4)> Hi Betty
10:45:27 <Betty> hi Eric. seeing your number makes me envious :-p
10:46:31 <Lori S> Been away for a few days. May I ask what the numbers signify?
10:47:02 <Katie2> I am 2 simply because I was logged on as Katie on another device.
10:47:03 <Dave from B(9)> Days until Wonderland
10:47:11 <Betty> countdown to the park
10:47:21 <Lori S> Ohhhh. So cool.
10:47:30 <Katie> My countdown number is, sadly, higher and unknown at this time. :(
10:47:53 <Betty> bummer, Katie :-(
10:48:46 <Eric (4)> OF
10:48:58 <ynpvisitor1> This is Jake. I updated GT''s data of the steamboat logger. Looks like the 1735 strong minor shows up
10:48:59 <Eric (4)> Sorry Katie...I know life can happen :-(
10:49:10 <Lori S> on delay... nice close up of the start!
10:49:20 <ynpvisitor1> I'm travelling for work this week so I'll be in and out of chat
10:49:51 <(98) Betty> whoohoo, less than 100 days :-D
10:50:05 <Eric (4)> Nice Betty
10:50:08 <Eric (4)> Thanks Jake!
10:50:17 <Eric (4)> Safe travels
10:50:23 <ynpvisitor1>
10:50:25 <(98) Betty> thx Jake
10:50:48 <Dave from B(9)> Visitation (total vehicles) up 6.5% in April
10:51:33 <Eric (4)> Will be very interesting to see how that data helps with understanding potential eruptions.
10:51:46 <Lori S> whoohoo is "highly subjective" but now universally panned" ;)
10:51:47 <(98) Betty> hi Dave from B(9)
10:52:21 <Dave from B(9)> I know Lori. I love it. I'm not sure we need 4 levels of minors
10:52:28 <Dave from B(9)> Hi Betty
10:53:03 <Lori S> Hi Dave. That line just made me giggle uncontrollably.
10:53:30 <Lori S> Eric, you been talking to Bruce?
10:53:45 <Katie> panners be darned - I still whoohoo and no one is taking it away from me
10:54:19 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
10:55:04 <Lori S> Oh, wait, Eric. Thought you were responding to the traffic data.
10:55:57 <Lori S> Bit distracted re-entering a week's worth of CC transactions in a log that my co-worker deleted.
10:56:09 <Eric (4)> woops
10:56:30 <Eric (4)> No, I was referring to jakes steamboat data logger link
10:56:45 <Lori S> Figured that out too late :/
10:57:14 <Eric (4)> Would be interesting to see if we get consistent intervals between water output spikes
10:57:26 <Katie> I'm at home today (hence my pc problem delays - just one here and it had overheated in my backpack). Husband had thermostat in "a/c only mode." Glad I could "fix" that from my phone without leaving this desk.
10:57:31 <Lori S> ..and shouldn't that be woowoops? :p
10:58:00 <Eric (4)> haha...I just ask alexa to change that for me now Katie :-D
10:58:25 <Eric (4)> Nest+Alexa is win from the sofa if you are cold :-D
10:58:42 <Eric (4)> Alexa, turn thermostat to 75 please
10:59:03 <Eric (4)> please is optional :-P
10:59:06 <Katie> We have an EcoBee thermostat. I can control it from anywhere. We just had it in a/c only mode so heat wouldn't kick on during night.
10:59:29 <Katie> I just switched it to "auto" and let it know the house is occupied (not usually occupied now).
10:59:51 <Eric (4)> I liked the ecobee's but my local utility company was more or less giving me $$ to get a I did. They wouldn't do it for the ecobees :-(
11:01:33 <(98) Betty> LC ie
11:01:42 <Katie> Ours gives credit for any programmable thermostat and/or one that detects when you are home. EcoBee does both (but the occupancy detection is tied to my husband's phone, so I had to tap "home")
11:02:31 <Dave from B(9)> Amazing how much has changed in the last 5 years
11:02:39 <Eric (4)> Yes, apparently my thermostat is smarter than my utility company :-(
11:03:01 <Eric (4)> The nest has the same feature, but you can connect multiple phones, so it knows if any of my family is home.
11:03:48 <Eric (4)> I wish it was tied in with my security system though so it knew if any of my windows or doors where open and would just turn off.
11:03:57 <Katie> I have never checked if I can tie EcoBee to my phone. Until recently, my husband was home far more often that I was.
11:04:27 <Eric (4)> oh well, easy enough to tell alexa to turn if off.
11:04:41 <Katie> Yes! Turning off when windows are open would be awesome - that's why ours was in a/c only mode.
11:05:02 <Eric (4)> Yep, home automation is finally becoming a reality Dave.
11:05:09 <Lori S> Antone see the old movie Electric Dreams?
11:05:30 <Eric (4)> A long time ago Lori
11:05:33 <Dave from B(9)> It was availble 5 years ago but at about $1000 per item
11:06:07 <Eric (4)> It has been available for 20+ years....but was so clunky nobody but super nerds or uber rich had it
11:06:23 <Katie> We don't have Alexa, Nest or any other home automation. Just the wi-fi connected programmable thermostat.
11:06:32 <Eric (4)> Now we have cheaply made, interoperable devices that can communicate.
11:06:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric, 1984 is NOT an old movie!
11:07:02 <Eric (4)> :-D
11:07:21 <Katie> And what EcoBee cost is made up for in savings through efficiency programming - and we needed to replace thermostat anyway
11:07:29 <(98) Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
11:07:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty
11:07:45 <Eric (4)> One of the first home computers was for kitchen recipes :-D The honeywell 316
11:07:48 <Katie> So, when the old programmable died (and was heating the house to 82 in the middle of the night for no reason), we bought the EcoBee
11:08:41 <Katie> For a night or two, I thought I was having hot flashes rather early in life. ha ha
11:09:01 <Eric (4)> 1969
11:09:35 <(98) Betty> steamy today
11:09:38 <Katie> Third night, I got up and looked at the thermostat. Tried resetting and reprogramming it, and a week later it was back to haywire times and temps. So it had to go.
11:10:06 <ynpvisitor81> how is BH, any significant improvment
11:10:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Needed tannerite.
11:10:37 <Eric (4)> Glad you got it sorted Katie
11:11:15 <Katie> drat
11:11:53 <Katie> wish the camera/connectivity issues would get likewise sorted out
11:12:00 <(98) Betty> BH is seaming
11:12:08 <(98) Betty> steaming*
11:12:27 <ynpvisitor81> can you zoom in, there might be bubblers
11:13:11 <Katie> There were, indeed.
11:13:28 <ynpvisitor81> so soon great
11:13:53 <ynpvisitor70> Bubblers for sure.
11:14:02 <ynpvisitor81> 6 inches
11:14:04 <Katie> Hopefully during a stable period for video stream
11:14:14 <(98) Betty> seems we missed Grand
11:14:25 <Katie> Must have
11:14:35 <Katie> Bubblers!
11:15:03 <Lori S> I graduated highschool in 1984. :O
11:15:17 <(98) Betty> splashy
11:15:40 <ynpvisitor70> Is the yellow raincoat a gazer?
11:15:55 <(98) Betty> who knows
11:16:07 <Katie> Gazer for the moment, in any event. :_
11:16:18 <ynpvisitor70> been standing there staring at the BHI.
11:16:21 <ynpvisitor81> At least they are smart, and are waiting
11:17:03 <ynpvisitor70> Right - if you're not at SB, might as well be at :bee:.
11:19:39 <Katie> splashy splashy
11:19:46 <Lori S> :bee: is probably less crowed than :sb: anyway
11:20:02 <Lori S> *crowded
11:20:14 <ynpvisitor70> Hey! I did not notice the new SB emoji there! :-)
11:20:29 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
11:20:36 <(98) Betty> not that new
11:20:58 <ynpvisitor70> Well, I'm just not observant I guess. 60-year-old eyes.
11:20:59 <Lori S> new to 70 :)
11:21:14 <(98) Betty> :-)
11:21:29 <Katie> Indy
11:21:39 <(98) Betty> woot
11:21:41 <(98) Betty> .
11:21:41 <(98) Betty> .
11:21:42 <(98) Betty> .
11:21:57 <(98) Betty> want me send the text?
11:21:57 <ynpvisitor78> Those are some big splashes
11:22:05 <ynpvisitor81> GO QUICKLY BH, I MUST LEAVE SOON
11:22:05 <Katie> Yes, please, Betty
11:22:10 <ynpvisitor81> Sorry for caps
11:22:16 <ynpvisitor70> Now they're gathering! One Herb Warren, coming up!
11:22:20 <ynpvisitor81> :D:D:D:D:D
11:22:24 <Katie> It's shout worthy. ;)
11:23:09 <ynpvisitor81> THEN YAY, YAY, YAY, YAY. GO BEEHIVE
11:23:20 <Katie> I just tapped "thank you" on my phone replying to the text. Oops. But thank you, Bety.
11:23:22 <Katie> *Betty
11:23:35 <(98) Betty> hahaha, funny
11:23:48 <LindaGt> Thx for txt
11:23:51 <Katie> and it was my watch, too, not phone - reflex
11:25:00 <ynpvisitor39> Thanks
11:26:17 <Casey> Thanks for the text. I was distracted as usual
11:27:14 <ynpvisitor70> Peeps be walking away. Silly peeps.
11:27:35 <Lori S> Maybe they have to pee. That happened to me once. LOL
11:27:44 <CraigC(3)> :bee::bee::bee:
11:27:50 <Eric (4)> Nice
11:27:56 <ynpvisitor70> Hot dang! That's no fun.
11:27:59 <CraigC(3)> Lori S, you've only peed once??? whoaaa
11:28:14 <Lori S> hahahahaha :p
11:28:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't that why they invented Depends?
11:28:32 <Eric (4)> Great steam curtain on static
11:28:44 <ynpvisitor70> Short indicator. 7 minutes.
11:28:46 <Katie> I'm feet away from a toilet and I've been holding it. :)
11:28:52 <Casey> How young is too young to wear Depends in basin?
11:29:06 <Lori S> New slogan for Depends: Wait for a geyser with nop worries!
11:29:06 <CraigC(3)> Casey, thank you for asking what I wanted to
11:29:12 <ynpvisitor39> TMI TMI :)
11:29:23 <Lori S> *no
11:30:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Love Bee from this vantage point.
11:30:14 <Dave from B(9)> Insert eye roll here
11:30:27 <(98) Betty> time for Lion too
11:30:31 <ynpvisitor70> :D
11:30:32 <CraigC(3)> Dave is here..... grow up you guys
11:30:38 <Dave from B(9)> haha
11:30:39 <Eric (4)> I am starting to get used to BH from way up here
11:31:18 <Dave from B(9)> My 2 cents....Last Monday I was at SB middle platform for 13.5 hours....never once left
11:31:30 <Lori S> Will have to add Depends to my geyser gazing supply bag... :p
11:31:42 <Lori S> Dvae, TMI
11:31:45 <Lori S> Dave
11:31:45 <ynpvisitor70> Yikes. 13.5 hours.
11:31:45 <Casey> Now we know where the increases in runoff came from.
11:31:50 <GO GOGGLE (5)> and Dave broke SB
11:31:50 <Katie> ha ha
11:31:52 <CraigC(3)> hahahah
11:31:58 <Lori S> hahaha
11:32:07 <(98) Betty> Lion ie
11:32:09 <ynpvisitor70> Lori S, those Depends won't do you any good in your bag!
11:32:13 <CraigC(3)> SB saw it as a competition to how long it could hold it in
11:32:16 <Lori S> hahaha
11:32:34 <Lori S> Craig :thumbsup:
11:33:00 <(98) Betty> no Lion
11:33:13 <Katie> Should be soon, though, for Lion.
11:33:13 <CraigC(3)> who started this silliness
11:33:19 <Lori S> It is a bit difficult to "find a tree" in UGB now with the new webcam. Just sayin.
11:33:27 <(98) Betty> lol
11:33:35 <Katie> Those people leaving when BH eruption was imminent started it.
11:33:39 <ynpvisitor70> :D
11:34:33 <LindaGt> Well my husband just watched his first start to finish beehive
11:34:44 <Lori S> Linda :thumbsup:
11:34:47 <(98) Betty> :thumbsup:
11:34:51 <ynpvisitor70> LindaGt, :thumbsup:
11:34:58 <(98) Betty> he liked it?
11:35:01 <CraigC(3)> did he read all the peeing comments too?
11:35:22 <Katie> LC
11:35:22 <Lori S> Oh, Craig... :D
11:35:26 <ynpvisitor70> Well, that Depends...
11:35:30 <CraigC(3)> LOL
11:35:36 <Lori S> 70 wins
11:35:37 <ynpvisitor78> I miss the old view.
11:35:51 <ynpvisitor70> Lori S, It's a Dad joke :-)
11:36:11 <Eric (4)> Dad jokes are the best jokes!
11:36:19 <LindaGt> Yes he liked it, he said 'you'll never forget your first beehive' 😉
11:36:32 <Katie> Years ago, my great-aunt "heard" my cousin say she was going to the store to pick up poisoned donuts for my Grandma.
11:36:33 <ynpvisitor70> Eric (4), Not if you're my son! Wince after wince...
11:36:46 <Eric (4)> ohh, my daughter does the same thing :-D
11:37:15 <Eric (4)> That's how I know they are good ;-P
11:37:19 <CraigC(3)> ok, back to cleaning for ~22 hours
11:37:20 <Katie> She was shocked and appalled. Jill almost had to spell "P-0-I-S-E and DONUTS"
11:37:33 <ynpvisitor70> Eric (4), :D
11:38:14 <Katie> ng is steamy
11:38:16 <Katie> well, was
11:38:33 <CraigC(3)> so is Grove
11:38:40 <Lori S> Thx for all the much needed laughs. Almost done with the boring spreadsheet re-entry.
11:40:17 <ynpvisitor70> Lori S, Definitely do not want to burn out during re-entry!
11:40:32 <Dave from B(9)> What's a poise donut?
11:40:40 <Lori S> :)
11:40:46 <Katie> poise are like depends
11:40:51 <Lori S> Eww, Dave
11:40:59 <ynpvisitor70> Dave from B(9), I had the SAME question. Must be some weird French thing.
11:41:08 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks Katie. I'm bnot quite to that age, yet
11:41:12 <Katie> Jill was picking up Poise and donuts - not poisoned donuts
11:41:24 <Lori S> P-O-I-S-E and Donuts
11:41:30 <Eric (4)> ahh, new term to me too
11:41:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave leads a sheltered life.
11:41:39 <Katie> And you haven't had to shop for grandparents or parents or in-laws or ...???
11:42:07 <Dave from B(9)> Katie, my wife handle the Depends purchase for my mom. I didn't know there was any other brand:)
11:43:10 <Eric (4)> NG/Lion battle going on I think
11:43:21 <Lori S> BTW, good to know when I met Dave for the first time, he was wearing full Depends. :)
11:43:35 <Lori S> *kidding*
11:43:49 <ynpvisitor70> Eric (4), thinking the same thing. Watch them both lose. Like that GoT finale last night.
11:43:52 <Katie> Lion
11:43:58 <Eric (4)> haha :-D
11:44:00 <Katie> nope
11:44:02 <Katie> big tease
11:44:26 <Eric (4)> Meh, I thought GOT was ok...definitely no worse that the week before!
11:44:32 <Dave from B(9)> haha Lori....careful, I know what you look like:)
11:44:45 <Eric (4)> For me it's been pretty much garbage since they ran out of book material.
11:45:03 <Katie> If GRRM ever finishes, I look forward to a deeper treatment of the finale
11:45:07 <ynpvisitor70> I know - but it required a crummy penultimate episode to see not so bad.
11:45:19 <Eric (4)> At least Peter Dinklage got a nice monolog...and I love his acting.
11:45:22 <Katie> But I was generally satisfied with the last episode.
11:45:35 <Katie> (generally - not entirely)
11:45:45 <ynpvisitor70> Dinklage kills it no matter what material he gets to say.
11:46:05 <Eric (4)> Yep...he is awesome and never seen him in a movie I didn't like.
11:46:07 <ynpvisitor70> My son was especially POed by Bran taking over.
11:46:22 <Eric (4)> be careful with spoilers :-D
11:46:43 <Eric (4)> marmot?
11:46:54 <ynpvisitor70> You mean there's someone who doesnt' know yet?
11:46:58 <Dave from B(9)> Go Lion!!!
11:47:07 <Eric (4)> Go NG!!!!
11:47:15 <Lori S> I haven't watched a single episode of G oT
11:47:17 <Katie> I'm not taking sides
11:47:34 <ynpvisitor70> Lori S, honestly - you've not missed much.
11:47:35 <Casey> Even if you don't watch the show you've heard by now. Pretty much unavoidable.
11:47:43 <Eric (4)> I have a friend who refused to watch last night because he was so pissed at last weeks episode....and he was a major GoT fanboy!
11:47:52 <Lori S> Casey, well, no, I've avoided eben that
11:47:57 <Lori S> *even
11:48:06 <Casey> Well done Lori
11:48:15 <Eric (4)> Yes, not to hard to avoid spoilers if you keep yourself sheltered.
11:48:18 <Katie> Then he (Eric's friend) should have seen it coming. The signs were all there.
11:48:34 <(98) Betty> eben is German for even, Lori :-)
11:48:44 <Lori S> Eric, I live in my own little world :p
11:48:46 <ynpvisitor70> I've seen maybe 12 episodes over the years. It just never grabbed me. I switched over to cartoons.
11:48:56 <Lori S> Good to know Betty!
11:49:04 <Eric (4)> I hear ya Lori...I have seen no spoilers yet, except I watched the finally :-P
11:49:46 <Eric (4)> Oh I loved the first few seasons where the book material carried the show. Thought it was the best series ever translated to screen.
11:50:15 <ynpvisitor70> I'm just a Luddite.
11:50:15 <Lori S> Time for lunch. Hope to be back on later. BFN
11:50:36 <Dave from B(9)> Lori, I've never seen an episode either
11:50:39 <ynpvisitor70> Marmot's splashing.
11:50:58 <Eric (4)> I guess NG & Lion are both going to lose :-(
11:51:01 <Katie> Last week I had to watch a couple hours late, so I took my watch off, didn't look at my phone - at all. Push notifications from media, FB flooded, texts from sister and uncle... I went "dark" until I could watch.
11:51:13 <(98) Betty> either me, Dave
11:51:37 <ynpvisitor70> My favorite part was when the Dragon liquefied the throne.
11:51:49 <ynpvisitor70> OOPs, sorry, another spoiler.
11:52:49 <Dave from B(9)> How about when that other guy died?:D
11:53:19 <Eric (4)> Glad I saw it already or I would be throwing explicatives at you right now 70....
11:53:36 <ynpvisitor70> Or when what's her name talked to Oscar or whatever he's called.
11:54:41 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, do you know of a YNP website that gives current trail conditions?
11:54:53 <Katie> The meltdown was my favorite, too - and all the interpretations of that. I have mine, but I won't share them here/now.
11:55:04 <Rhodium House> I was up too late last night and realized that two actors from the Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" were also in "Game of Thrones"
11:55:31 <Eric (4)> I didn't realize how much snow the Bechler region of the park gets during the winter!
11:56:33 <Eric (4)> That link is the best thing I know Dave or trail/trip reports on Yellowstone Hiking FB group
11:56:40 <ynpvisitor70> Eric (4), That strip of red on the map is the continental divide. Orographic intensification of precip.
11:57:20 <ynpvisitor70> Or actually, just west of it. Same physics though.
11:57:28 <Eric (4)> I don't believe so 70...the divide is quite a few miles east of that red areas location.
11:58:15 <Eric (4)> The divide is East of Shoshone, and that red is a ways West
11:58:23 <Katie> Gonna miss old view with Daisy, Lion and OF all soon to be in window.
11:58:32 <ynpvisitor70> Well, it runs between Lonestar and Shoshone Lake, then doodles around near the OF-Thumb road before heading south.
11:58:47 <Katie> But I do like this view for other reasons. Just not when timing is ...
11:59:11 <Dave from B(9)> You mean there is another YNP FB group that I'm not a part of:)
11:59:28 <LindaGt> Katie, we have media blackouts when I watch tennis dont want to know who win. Once comcast screensaver announced it. I put on hold not to watch and screensaver popped up with the news.
12:00:06 <ynpvisitor70> Anyway, gotta go - have fun guys!
12:01:56 <Eric (4)> Yes, Pat Bohanan runs the group...excellent one IMHO
12:02:03 <Eric (4)> Bye 70
12:02:29 <Katie> I agree - excellent group.
12:02:46 <Dave from B(9)> I just put in a request. Hope they accept me.
12:04:21 <Dave from B(9)> Monument looks good
12:05:06 <Eric (4)> Nice watershed map that shows where the divide splits the watersheds:
12:05:45 <Eric (4)> He will....they let pretty much any riff raff in there :-P
12:06:11 <Eric (4)> Dave, I highly recommend this online map too:,-110.729281,13z
12:06:26 <Eric (4)> It has some of the best geographic and hiking info I have seen for Yellowstone
12:06:45 <Katie> Did you buy a copy of Pat's new book?
12:07:48 <Dave from B(9)> haha Eric
12:08:21 <Dave from B(9)> Katie, is it a YNP trails book. What year was it published?
12:08:40 <Eric (4)> I have not yet Katie, but I would really like to
12:08:46 <Katie> Yellowstone Trail and Backcountry Field Guide by Thomas P. Bohannan - this year
12:09:06 <Eric (4)> Yes, I am pretty sure it's the definitive guide to back country hiking in yellowstone now.
12:09:44 <Dave from B(9)> I don't have it yet. I usually do my new book purchasing at OF on my first visit to add to the collection
12:09:54 <Eric (4)> He also put out there he is going to do a history type day hike from West Thumb toward OF on the old road.
12:09:59 <Eric (4)> on 6/15 I believ e
12:10:02 <Eric (4)> believe
12:10:08 <Katie> I bought that one directly from Pat, signed.
12:10:09 <Dave from B(9)> I saw that. That sounds fun
12:10:30 <Eric (4)> Yes, If I was in the park, I would totally do it! He is a wealth of info
12:10:39 <Eric (4)> Daisy
12:10:50 <CraigC(3)>
12:11:05 <(98) Betty> LC ie
12:13:15 <(98) Betty> Artemisia ie
12:14:11 <CraigC(3)> Aurum erupted
12:14:18 <CraigC(3)> too late
12:14:20 <(98) Betty> or is it just steamy?
12:14:27 <Katie> Saw it on list and hoped to catch end
12:14:31 <CraigC(3)> in basin entry
12:15:37 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, do you know if the YNP FB page does a lot of group hikes? This might be something my wife and I would like to get involved in.
12:16:07 <Katie> Ballpark Frank organizes group hikes via Meetup
12:16:15 <CraigC(3)> wink wink nudge nudge
12:16:39 <Katie> Meetup, not Tinder. Sheesh. ;)
12:16:47 <CraigC(3)> ;)
12:17:01 <Eric (4)> I have not seen any group hikes on the Yellowstone Hiking group page Dave
12:17:02 <Dave from B(9)> haha. Is this MA's friend, Frank?
12:17:08 <Eric (4)> Other than the one Pat posted.
12:17:13 <Katie> Yes.
12:17:26 <Eric (4)> Oh cool, might look what they are doing while I am there
12:17:31 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), no Daisy entry
12:17:31 <Dave from B(9)> I've hiked with Frank and MA before
12:17:56 <Katie> He had been posting them on Yellowstone Insiders Hub - hasn't in a while, but I'm not sure if that's because of his injury (they are suspended) or not posting.
12:18:36 <Katie> Frank Smith Jr. (real name)
12:19:16 <Eric (4)> You know that group name Katie?
12:19:37 <Katie> I can get it from one of his posts. Justa sec...
12:20:00 <Katie> Yellowstone 365
12:20:24 <ynpvisitor78> There was a 7 hr Grand yesterday
12:20:33 <CraigC(3)> wow
12:20:43 <CraigC(3)> Grand and Sb in cahoots
12:20:52 <CraigC(3)> thanks, dave
12:20:58 <Katie> We need that last Daisy entered
12:21:22 <CraigC(3)> great view of preplay
12:22:40 <CraigC(3)> I entered Daisy for Eric, he is looking stuff up
12:23:12 <Katie> Thanks.
12:23:58 <Eric (4)> Thanks Craig!
12:24:00 <Eric (4)> You rock
12:24:03 <CraigC(3)> :thumbsup:
12:24:15 <Eric (4)> I found Franks meetup!
12:24:26 <Eric (4)> Doesn't show anything planned, but I joined anyway
12:24:29 <Dave from B(9)> Just downloading meetup now
12:24:50 <Eric (4)> You can check on their website Dave
12:24:53 <Eric (4)> OF ie
12:28:44 <CraigC(3)> some new person entered the Aurum off webcam 6 minutes after the in-basin entry
12:29:09 <Katie> We didn't even see it on webcam - I saw entry and flipped view to it, but too late.
12:29:26 <CraigC(3)> their first entry ever :)
12:30:34 <Cooper> So cute, people first ever entry
12:32:17 <Katie> I take it it was already flagged and removed? I see entry from ldgordon at 12:12 only
12:32:47 <CraigC(3)> it's on that one as secondary, look at the entry time
12:34:20 <Katie> Ah. I see. geyserhill123. 2 entries, now - and registered one minuted before that Aurum entry.
12:34:20 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), have you considered joining those groups where the person has the tall flag leading everyone around the basins?
12:34:32 <Eric (4)> That account has been deactivated
12:36:32 <Eric (4)> and entries removed
12:36:36 <Dave from B(9)> CraigC, those cost a LOT of money:)
12:36:39 <Dave from B(9)> I
12:36:56 <Dave from B(9)> We're talking about hikes led my YNP experts!
12:37:04 <CraigC(3)> did someone enter the OF that that account had entered?
12:37:36 <Eric (4)> I just entered it...didn't catch if it was long/short
12:37:48 <CraigC(3)> long
12:38:25 <Eric (4)> Thanks
12:38:56 <CraigC(3)> :thumbsup:
12:38:57 <Dave from B(9)> Hiking in groups of 4 or more is the safest way to hike in YNP
12:39:21 <Eric (4)> That person is starting to drive me nuts...same person that made the new account yesterday and was causing issues!
12:39:41 <CraigC(3)> what is the motive?
12:40:34 <Eric (4)> I don't know, but there IP addresses(s) are going to get banned and they won't be making any more accounts from their school or home networks.
12:40:40 <CraigC(3)> I remember a couple of names doing weird entries about a month or so ago
12:40:53 <Eric (4)> Same person Craig
12:40:58 <CraigC(3)> wow
12:41:29 <CraigC(3)> maybe someone got their feelings hurt in some of the banter
12:41:36 <CraigC(3)> you guys can be really rough
12:41:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Giantess boil
12:41:59 <Katie> Indeed
12:44:24 <Dave from B(9)> Don't new members have to be approved?
12:45:34 <(98) Betty> ugb cam down
12:45:35 <Katie> *sighs*
12:47:22 <Cooper> ugh, people with no respect for geysers, and GT
12:47:35 <Cooper> :(
12:47:43 <Cooper> I just read the chat above
12:50:20 <EmilyW> hello
12:50:35 <(98) Betty> hi
12:50:40 <Emily> Thats not necessary
12:52:17 <Eric (4)> Hi Emily!
12:52:34 <Emily> what are these numbers?
12:52:47 <Eric (4)> Days until we reach the basin
12:53:08 <Emily> oh
12:53:10 <Emily> well then
12:54:19 <(98) Betty> hey, you are there 4 days before me :-)
12:54:20 <Katie> Very steamy hill
12:54:55 <(98) Betty> oops, 3 days :i::i:
12:55:15 <(98) Betty> ugh ohh, Linda :-(
12:55:17 <Emily (95)> yes! I will be in the basin when you are
12:55:31 <(98) Betty> nice
12:55:31 <Emily (95)> thats not fun Linda
12:55:33 <LindaGt(395)> (98) Betty, its sad
12:55:49 <LindaGt(395)> Emily (95), 🙁
12:56:01 <Eric (4)> So is there a different Linda in basin now?
12:56:34 <Katie(10)> I looked at calendar. I think I CAN make it in 10 days. *fingers crossed*
12:56:35 <LindaGt(395)> Whatever it is I didnt do it 😆
12:56:40 <Eric (4)> ohh, for some reason I thought ldgordon was a linda :-D
12:56:48 <Eric (4)> Go Katie!
12:57:01 <(98) Betty> Katie(10), :thumbsup:
12:57:17 <Emily (95)> I would have been ~ 25 days if not for that trip fizzling
12:57:25 <LindaGt(395)> Too depressing I'll change back
12:57:39 <LindaGt> Thata better
12:57:43 <Katie(10)> Yeah, that's a really big number, Linda.
12:59:11 <LindaGt(gnp 30)> 😏
12:59:27 <(98) Betty> well, need to head out early today. Enjoy the steam
12:59:42 <Cooper> North Google
12:59:48 <LindaGt> (98) Betty, bye
12:59:49 <Cooper> Goggle*
13:00:12 <LindaGt> Cooper, ?
13:00:30 <Cooper> on GT
13:00:38 <LindaGt> Ah
13:01:31 <LindaGt> Really steamy back there
13:02:30 <Cooper> been wondering lately, what is the large steaming thing in the middle of geyser hill?
13:02:41 <Eric (4)> dragon spring
13:03:10 <Cooper> oh, thx
13:09:04 <Rhodium House> Pretty amazing (= dangerous) storms in the Midwest now:
13:10:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Tornadoes are worse than snow
13:11:01 <CraigC(3)> cool seeing steam go opposite directions
13:11:36 <Chancellor> nice to see the bison too
13:11:58 <CraigC(3)> bison going same direction :)
13:12:40 <Emily (95)> be cool to see giant on this cam one day
13:12:47 <Emily (95)> or the dancing fingers
13:13:15 <Dave from B(9)> Hi Emily
13:13:36 <Emily (95)> Hi dave
13:13:59 <CraigC(3)> dancing fingers?
13:14:03 <Cooper> well im off for now, have a good rest of your day, should be back at 1500 MST
13:14:03 <Cooper> +
13:14:12 <LindaGt> Cooper, bye
13:14:22 <Katie(10)> Bye Cooper
13:14:38 <Dave from B(9)> I'm guessing F&M
13:14:40 <Emily (95)> Fan and Mortar look like dancing fingers when you see them from crested
13:14:54 <Emily (95)> its not fun to see dancing fingers
13:15:45 <CraigC(3)> my luck with F&M is same as SB.... missed F&M by about 90 minutes
13:17:31 <CraigC(3)> LS?
13:18:21 <Joe> Hi, I'm back, I see Ihave changes to make to the reference image, that is why I put it out there, to get input from those that are more familiar with locations than I. Changes are easy to do>
13:18:39 <Casey> Thanks Joe!
13:18:39 <CraigC(3)> wb Joe.... thanks for doing it
13:18:44 <Emily (95)> is there a link?
13:18:52 <Katie(10)> I missed it, too.
13:19:02 <Emily (95)> down the page I see
13:19:07 <Casey>
13:19:12 <Dave from B(9)> Joe, thank you for putting it together!
13:19:25 <Eric (4)> reference image link on right
13:19:56 <Joe> Yes please give input so I can make changes
13:20:01 <Eric (4)> and apparently I suck as an editor :-P
13:20:01 <Katie(10)> Thanks, Joe!
13:20:13 <Eric (4)> Graham had a lot of good input early Joe
13:20:19 <Emily (95)> sawmills placement is off
13:20:41 <Kevin L™🌵> You may want to conside raising Pump and putting an X on it so it doesn't get confused with the BH locations.
13:20:42 <Joe> Good i'll change it
13:20:49 <Eric (4)> Yep, there are quite a few things Joe will need to adjust, but again, it's the best reference that exists right now ;-)
13:21:07 <Joe> Ok Kevin will do
13:21:34 <ynpvisitor999®> That's indeed not Sawmill, but a totally different spring (Calida Pool if I recall correctly)
13:22:04 <Emily (95)> Yeah I think thats calida 999
13:22:41 <Joe> changes are very easy as I have built it in many layers, and when done Eric has the hard work of replacing the old with new
13:23:46 <Joe> I've never seen sawmill on cam so I was guessing from a GT map
13:23:47 <Kevin L™🌵> You may want to submit it to Dave K too Joe.
13:24:01 <Joe> Ok Kevin
13:25:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I think that it would be a great addition to the official page.
13:26:50 <Joe> I'll search through the log and see what other changes need to be made, also any suggestions of geysers that i have not placed are welcome also
13:26:53 <Teri> good afternoon all; Joe - tks for the new cam guide!
13:27:35 <Teri> headed out for Portland for the NBA Western final; ticket prices came down w/the GS 3-0 lead; would never be able to see GS in the Bay Area
13:27:46 <GO GOGGLE (5)> yeah NG .... boo i missed it
13:27:48 <Joe> We will make the image a guoup project to make it a correct as can be
13:27:54 <Teri> surprised that SB didn't go with the strong minors 2 days ago
13:28:10 <Teri> regards to all
13:28:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Depression ie?
13:29:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be just a push
13:30:33 <Dave from B(9)> Teri, have fun
13:30:44 <Dave from B(9)> Major playoff sporting events are fun
13:31:03 <Joe> WOW! that 0941 E Grand was another 5H 5 min Grand!
13:32:19 <Eric (4)> Yowza, that is a short interval
13:32:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't remember seeing such a lot of steam (and possible runoff channel) coming from the Pot O Gold/Heart Spring corner
13:32:46 <Joe> NG
13:33:05 <GO GOGGLE (5)> is SB waiting for Craig?
13:33:06 <Joe> or lots of steam
13:33:07 <Eric (4)> Glad you can make it up Teri :-D
13:33:09 <GO GOGGLE (5)> GO GOGGLE
13:33:33 <Eric (4)> Bummed that Portland is no longer in it though :-(
13:33:36 <Dave from B(9)> Our Grand interval of 457 on 5/12/19 ranks #53 of last 50,000 Grand entries. Many errors in front of it, however
13:34:11 <GO GOGGLE (5)> whats the shortest Dave?
13:34:14 <GO GOGGLE (5)> 20m?
13:34:29 <Dave from B(9)> p min
13:34:32 <Dave from B(9)> 9 min
13:34:58 <GO GOGGLE (5)> yeah..... i wonder where it realy fits
13:35:10 <GO GOGGLE (5)> could be some ? that are wrong too
13:36:21 <Dave from B(9)> A lot of short intervals from 1970-1973
13:42:23 <GO GOGGLE (5)> whats the shortest you believe to be true?
13:43:30 <Katie(10)> Bison in the same place as the other day... close to path
13:44:57 <Dave from B(9)> I would have to do a lot of investigating to figure that out. It's hard to believe anything under 4 hours in today's world. Is there any historical resource that could tell us about Grand in the early 1970s?
13:45:58 <Dave from B(9)> We have been in a shorter trent cycle of Grand for awhile now...could it get even shorter?
13:46:13 <Dave from B(9)> interval*
13:46:40 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the shortest I remember it.
13:48:07 <ynpvisitor999®> TSB doesn't mention anything particular about the 70s. I'd imagine it being mentioned if intervals were below a certain time limit or so
13:48:43 <Joe> I have Read the chat log and noted the changes I need to make to the reference image and will make those changes, and Eric I will compress the file size so it loads faster
13:49:07 <Dave from B(9)> That's my point, Jarno. For that many short intervals, it has to be mentioned somewhere else.
13:49:33 <Katie(10)> I'd love to have a high-res version stored, Joe, if that's possible.
13:49:43 <Dave from B(9)> I will send an email to the Google Group or to TSB directly to try to find out
13:50:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Can you give me an example super short interval for Grand in the 70s, Dave?
13:50:08 <ynpvisitor999®> as in, two entries or so
13:50:12 <Joe> Katie, no problem
13:51:19 <Katie(10)> Thanks
13:53:01 <Dave from B(9)> Jarno: Aug 10, 1973 1651
13:53:18 <Dave from B(9)> June 17, 1975 1830ie
13:53:49 <Joe> I'm working with screenshots I took yesterday, so that will be res available
13:54:25 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, 1830 ie seems like a timezone discrepancy, as 1730 ie would fit perfectly
13:54:47 <Joe> I intend to replace the image with one when we get an ideal viewing in the basin
13:56:32 <Joe> I tried a panorma of the whole basin and it was just way too large but intend to work one up and put it out for opinions
13:56:36 <Dave from B(9)> July 22, 1970 1948
13:56:49 <Dave from B(9)> July 28, 1973 1500
13:57:21 <Dave from B(9)> Actually, there are only 23,059 primary Grand entries in GT
13:57:48 <Katie(10)> What you have so far is great, Joe, and much appreciated. Any modifications will be gravy. :0
13:57:49 <Dave from B(9)> May 1, 1970 is the first Grand entry
13:57:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I have no idea about August 10, though. May have been a large Turban or some other geyser nearby. 1615 (?) is a questionable entry anyway
13:58:43 <ynpvisitor98> was just looking at the reference photo, didn't someone say Rocket was to the right of Grotto? It's left in the photo. And Sawmill is definitely out of place.
13:58:48 <Joe> X
13:59:46 <Joe> XX
13:59:58 <Dave from B(9)> Joe, I like it broken up into the different views. How about 1 with Sasquatch, please:)
13:59:58 <Jeff in Ct> Need someone in the field with a large orange flag to literally flag some features.
14:00:26 <ynpvisitor98> Sawmill is at the junction of the bw, much closer to Spasmodic
14:00:40 <Joe> X
14:00:43 <CraigC(3)> if I had cell service, I coudl wear an orange shirt, that is like a drive-in screen
14:00:43 <ynpvisitor98> I have not idea about Rocket, just thought I saw that mentioned in here
14:00:46 <Jeff in Ct> Joe, makes sense to have one panaromic, and then maybe three more for each of the primary views
14:01:11 <Dave from B(9)> Yep, Rocket is just to the right of Grotto...that was me
14:01:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Powerful OF
14:01:13 <Katie(10)> I could wear a safety vest one day and text my current location to Joe. :)
14:01:22 <Dave from B(9)> It was fun seeing both of them from the cam last week
14:01:38 <Joe> X
14:01:48 <ynpvisitor98> so for Sawmill you could use the bw junction
14:03:31 <Kevin L™🌵> How about this Katie?
14:04:06 <Katie(10)> Ummm... No. Just no.
14:04:20 <Dave from B(9)> hahaha
14:04:30 <CraigC(3)> LMAO
14:05:16 <CraigC(3)> just aim at the O2 tank in the shark's mouth
14:05:28 <Dave from B(9)> Kevin, if you could shoot straight, it MIGHT be a good idea.
14:05:40 <Joe> lSorry for the x"s I was working on the image and grabbed the wrong keyboard again :(
14:05:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Were gonna need a bigger geyser....
14:05:50 <CraigC(3)> lol
14:06:36 <ynpvisitor98> Solitary is missing on the GH view
14:07:16 <Katie(10)> "The flare is over Grand, Giant, Grotto, Rocket, Artemesia, Bulger, Old Tardy and Spasmodic."
14:07:23 <Katie(10)> "Oh, you wanted precision?"
14:07:44 <Joe> solitary noted
14:09:18 <Eric (4)> Katie, if you wore this we wouldn't miss you either!
14:10:38 <Katie(10)> ha ha! As long as I don't have to wear those shoes. Those don't look suitable for geyser basin walking.
14:11:01 <Eric (4)> totally suitable!
14:11:45 <Dave from B(9)> What? You've never been called a clown when out in the basin?
14:12:23 <Katie(10)> My only objection is to the shoes.
14:12:30 <Eric (4)> Then Joe wouldn't even have to draw an X You could just stand at each feature, he could snap a picture and then edit them all together.
14:13:00 <CraigC(3)> do it for the team
14:13:02 <Katie(10)> I can be a clown, but in sensible, comfortable walking footwear.
14:13:03 <Dave from B(9)> Could we have a different colored shoe for each geyser?
14:13:29 <Eric (4)> Hey now...those shoes aren't much bigger than mine!
14:14:12 <Katie(10)> When I was a kid, I emulated Punky Brewster and did wear different colored shoes on opposite feet and different colored bandanas tied around legs, etc.
14:20:02 <Eric (4)> Wow...some great chat about Cell reception in Norris on GG @ Facebook! There’s a brand new tower at Canyon, and NPS will be installing a cellular extender at Norris sometime this summer that will provide limited cell service in that area. Not sure if the extender is pulling service from Canyon or Washburn, but I don’t think that really matters to those who use it. 😂
14:20:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice
14:20:46 <Eric (4)> I had no idea there was planned cell service to Norris and they are working to make sure there is cell coverage from West all the way to UGB along the roadways
14:21:17 <CraigC(3)> it will be easier to enter in Grand Tetons :)
14:21:20 <Eric (4)> Apparently the new super has made it his priority to bring cellular service to the park for improved safety!
14:21:32 <Eric (4)> Good on him!
14:21:47 <Eric (4)> Is that grotto down there with all that steam?
14:22:08 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be the Giant platform, Grotto is further left
14:22:18 <Dave from B(9)> hahahahahaha CraigC
14:22:29 <CraigC(3)> ;)
14:23:22 <ynpvisitor98> yeah, please cell at Madison and in LGB
14:23:23 <lori lurking> Does anyone know what to tell someone for emergency contact when someone is camping at Madison? They have the lodging contact number, but what about camping? They are leaving a son at home with others.
14:23:27 <Dave from B(9)> FB inside joke.....CraigC, I guess that person didn't know what GT really stood for:)
14:24:00 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), I replied to him about it
14:24:00 <Dave from B(9)> There should be a phone at the desk at Madison CG
14:24:12 <ynpvisitor999®> daisy
14:24:17 <ynpvisitor98> Eric is there someplace you can read about the plan, for service from West to OF?
14:24:32 <Eric (4)> I have no idea xanterra 24h number and have them route you?
14:24:42 <Eric (4)> Just on the GG group on facebook
14:24:54 <ynpvisitor98> there is a post about cell phones?
14:25:03 <Eric (4)> Lynn posted a question about cell towers yesterday
14:25:05 <CraigC(3)> I loved that pay phone down in Gibbon Canyon, that was my favorite place to call and check in with my parents back in the 80s
14:25:23 <ynpvisitor98> that road is gone now Craig
14:25:27 <ynpvisitor98> that was a great spot
14:25:30 <Eric (4)> Pat Bohanan apparently has a ton of inside knowledge
14:25:31 <Kevin L™🌵> I used to do that too
14:25:47 <CraigC(3)> Kevin L™🌵, what did my parent say when you called them?
14:25:54 <Eric (4)> You called Craig's parents kevin?
14:25:59 <Eric (4)> haha :-D
14:26:00 <CraigC(3)> hahahahaha
14:26:17 <Eric (4)> Great minds!
14:26:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Well they are my age...
14:27:20 <Katie(10)> No wind and humid made that Daisy look huge
14:27:22 <CraigC(3)> is the road down there torn out completely since the re-route?
14:29:26 <CraigC(3)> bison right next to people
14:30:12 <Dave from B(9)> CraigC, I beleive the road is completely torn out. I wish they would have made it a bike trail.
14:30:28 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), that would have been cool
14:30:55 <ynpvisitor98> I think fishermen still walk there, yet road bed is gone
14:31:07 <Dave from B(9)> Have you guys heard about Secret Valley?
14:31:18 <CraigC(3)> no
14:31:23 <ynpvisitor98> it would have made such a nice bike route, that Madison to Norris road is still not bike friendly
14:31:59 <Dave from B(9)> Are you sure, Craig? See my next link.
14:32:18 <ynpvisitor98> I read the thread on the FB GG page Eric, thanks for pointing that out. I hope the updates happen.
14:32:29 <Dave from B(9)>
14:32:50 <Eric (4)> Pretty sure that is/was grotto back there
14:32:55 <Eric (4)> with all the steam
14:33:20 <Eric (4)> but even oblong looks very steamy
14:33:57 <ynpvisitor98> I was hoping with Giant inactive that Oblong would start up again
14:35:42 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), interesting, never had heard anything about that place
14:36:01 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), so when are you going searching for the treasure?
14:36:12 <CraigC(3)> sorry I told you about it
14:36:49 <CraigC(3)> bulger maybe, so much steam
14:37:41 <CraigC(3)> ldgordon seems to be on top of those features there, though
14:38:07 <CraigC(3)> yup, they just entered it
14:38:42 <Michael> Good to have reliable confirmation of what we think we see.
14:38:50 <CraigC(3)> yes
14:39:42 <CraigC(3)> I'm going to take a closer look at Twilight Spring this weekend, I had never paid it any attention, but it sure puts out steam in th evenings
14:39:53 <Katie(10)> Too bad ldgordon isn't in high visibility attire and coordinating. :)
14:40:04 <Dave from B(9)> haha, Craig. I'm not going searching. Not enough free time to be chasing needles in a haystack
14:40:08 <Eric (4)> Amazon overnight Katie!
14:40:24 <Dave from B(9)> Yeah...Gizmo:)
14:41:04 <Dave from B(9)> I love noisy geysers
14:41:37 <Michael> Spasmodic runoff may be responsible for a lot of the steam by Twilight.
14:42:24 <Dave from B(9)> Michael, have you been to an MSL game yet?
14:43:58 <Michael> Not yet. They raised the ticket prices...
14:44:25 <Dave from B(9)> 25 a ticket?
14:44:38 <Michael> I did see them play MLS opposition in the US Open cup once or twice.
14:45:39 <Cooper> Hello again everybody
14:45:52 <Katie(10)> welcome back
14:46:00 <CraigC(3)> hey Cooper
14:46:16 <Dave from B(9)> a crowd chasing a bison
14:46:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be soccer Yellowstone style.
14:47:24 <Michael> I got accustomed to the good seats, which are now $45 if you can snag any.
14:47:38 <Michael> Grand
14:47:58 <Katie(10)> They herded it right toward the boardwalk and the person with an umbrella, who had the sense to hustle.
14:48:03 <Cooper> What are the numbers at the end of some peoples name for like Eric, Graham, Katie, and Dave
14:48:30 <Michael> Pretty sure they're counting down days until in-person gazing.
14:48:40 <GO GOGGLE (5)> :thumbsup:
14:48:46 <CraigC(3)> 3 days til I get there
14:49:00 <Cooper> oh, then
14:49:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
14:49:40 <Dave from B(9)> I bet there is a lot of cussing at SB this afternoon
14:50:00 <CraigC(3)> glad I didn't take Shirley there
14:50:00 <ynpvisitor98> so the terms WOO and WOO HOO are panned now at SB?
14:50:14 <ynpvisitor98> cb just used them in a note 2 days ago
14:50:49 <ynpvisitor98> Craig, I thought you did take your mom to SB
14:50:51 <Cooper(14)> I agree, poor people waiting at SB
14:51:21 <CraigC(3)> ynpvisitor98, I did, and we were laughing about her hearing the f-bombs
14:51:52 <ynpvisitor98> still hard to believe you never said an F bomb in front of her until this past trip
14:51:53 <Cooper(14)> LOL
14:51:53 <Dave from B(9)> 98, minor terms from low to high....Woo, Woo Hoo, OMG and HS
14:52:11 <Dave from B(9)> (*, Craig's memory is failing him
14:52:13 <CraigC(3)> ynpvisitor98, oh, you heard my story about breakfast? LMAO
14:52:13 <Dave from B(9)> 98*
14:52:19 <ynpvisitor98> so they are not to be used anymore Dave? I am confused.
14:52:41 <Dave from B(9)> Yes, those terms are used
14:52:42 <Cooper(14)> LMAO, LMAO and so is my very annoying freind
14:52:55 <CraigC(3)> cam down
14:53:16 <Katie(10)> op panel is still up - sorry I'm the only one seeing it (at very low res)
14:53:35 <Katie(10)> there ya go
14:53:38 <CraigC(3)> up
14:53:40 <Dave from B(9)> I would like to see a Google Group post on the differences between the 4 SB minors
14:53:47 <ynpvisitor98> Thanks Dave. I wonder why R Michaels wrote that?
14:53:55 <Dave from B(9)> I'm assuming NV vertival is a must for all 4
14:54:19 <Dave from B(9)> Because they are extremely subjective terms
14:55:12 <ynpvisitor98> so are all SB notes, that is why I like the Beverlys, they are consistent
14:55:45 <Eric (4)> Hey, I would trade places with those "poor" people at SB anytime if they want to do my work and I can sit and hangout at SB all day :-D
14:56:05 <Dave from B(9)> Yep...the Beverly's do a GREAT job posting SB and staying consistent with their descriptions
14:56:13 <Cooper(14)> So would I Eric
14:56:23 <CraigC(3)> google is such a weak platform for discussion.... I wish there was a phpbb bulletin board platform for us, so there could be all the serious categories, and all the chit chat separate, so people would get their panties in a wad
14:56:33 <Dave from B(9)> But, if they aren't there, it would be nice to know the minor scale in a little more detail
14:56:33 <CraigC(3)> wouldnt
14:56:34 <ynpvisitor98> except I was lost on one note by CB, not sure what the letters meant
14:58:13 <Dave from B(9)> To be frank, we would be pretty lost at SB, if the Beverly's weren't there 24/7
14:58:20 <Cooper(14)> BYW, my dumb freind aka ynpvisitor3 is about to claim my first name Korben, at least most likely
14:58:46 <ynpvisitor98> like what does this mean? from cbnice woowho @ 2028 CNVVSVH, @2045 A HOLY S**T that got us all standing up. CNVV to 80'+ with SVVH with a raging river! WOW!
14:58:54 <Cooper(14)> ynp visitor 3, is not me so ignore him
14:59:26 <Cooper (14)> Get off my account LMAO kid!!!]l
14:59:35 <Cooper(14)> Sorry guys
14:59:40 <ynpvisitor98> what is CNVVSVH?
14:59:43 <Cooper(14)> he is very annoying
14:59:53 <Cooper(14)> concerted north vent vertical, south vent something
15:00:08 <CraigC(3)> horizontal?
15:00:08 <ynpvisitor999®> CNVVSVH: Concerted North Vent Vertical; South Vent ; CNVV: Concerted North Vent Vertical; SVVH: South Vent Vertical
15:00:25 <Cooper(14)> maybe H=High
15:00:28 <Dave from B(9)> svh is South Vent Heavy water
15:00:46 <Cooper(14)> or maybe it was some weird name for granding?
15:00:47 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
15:00:49 <ynpvisitor98> thanks all, I was confused by that, too many letters!
15:01:19 <Dave from B(9)> I've seen these letters before. Maybe a Transactions article?
15:01:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I recall seeing that in some Transactions article, yes
15:02:39 <Dave from B(9)> Yes, Paul Strasser Transactions Article
15:04:25 <Cooper(14)> LMAO, Pun on Grand
15:05:05 <Dave from B(9)> What grade are you two in?
15:05:12 <Cooper(14)> well I am off for a little bit,
15:05:25 <ynpvisitor98> i don't think it is really his friend
15:05:35 <Cooper(14)> trust me it is
15:05:44 <ynpvisitor98> why is he here?
15:05:59 <ynpvisitor98> and why can't he spell?
15:06:01 <Cooper(14)> he is sitting next to me, and he is trying it out to see if he likes it
15:06:07 <ynpvisitor98> funny
15:06:13 <Cooper(14)> no joke
15:06:16 <ynpvisitor98> tell him how to spell Admiral
15:06:32 <Grand Admaral C> Don't
15:06:37 <Grand Admaral C> just don't
15:06:37 <Cooper(14)> he doesn't even know what a giant hot period is, LMAO 100 times
15:06:48 <ynpvisitor98> well if he is new, why would he???
15:06:56 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a brand of TV set when I grew up.
15:06:59 <Cooper(14)> True
15:07:08 <ynpvisitor98> be nice Cooper
15:07:16 <Cooper(14)> Im trying, its hard
15:07:24 <ynpvisitor98> you can do it
15:07:43 <Cooper(14)> well at least he is nice IRL, and he is knowledgeable in others area
15:07:47 <Cooper(14)> at least somewhat
15:08:01 <Cooper(14)> and he is the funny event in the chat for now
15:08:26 <Cooper(14)> cam down?
15:08:34 <Katie(10)> Yup
15:09:34 <Dave from B(9)> Imagine getting more updates from Norris if they have cell service:)
15:09:54 <Eric (4)> Yes, real time updates would be crazy cool
15:09:55 <Grand Admiral C> Sounds like this is a grand mistake
15:09:57 <Cooper(14)> that would be awesome
15:10:08 <Cooper(14)> OMG
15:10:28 <Eric (4)> Believe me when I say I can block your entire school from here with a couple finger clicks!
15:10:35 <Cooper(14)> I know
15:10:45 <Cooper(14)> He is logging off right now
15:10:56 <Cooper(14)> there he is off
15:10:59 <Dave from B(9)> I'm still laughing at Steve Eide's call before the May 13 eruption after Tom C and MA had just left. "You better hurry up and get down here!" or something to that extent
15:11:00 <ynpvisitor98> oh,, they are kids?
15:11:10 <Dave from B(9)> And then he said it again after minor #3 ...
15:11:12 <Eric (4)> yes
15:11:22 <Cooper(14)> yes we are
15:11:22 <ynpvisitor98> well, we survived Ryan and Micah as kids
15:11:28 <Eric (4)> haha....yep, the RUN call is a good one
15:11:40 <CraigC(3)> when I was younger, I could see myself messing with one of my friends like this
15:12:01 <Eric (4)> :-D
15:12:15 <CraigC(3)> and I say younger.... at 56
15:12:23 <Eric (4)> Like 55 Craig?
15:12:29 <CraigC(3)> OMG
15:12:39 <CraigC(3)> stop melding into my head
15:12:56 <Cooper(14)> Well being 13 with friends can be awesome and annoying, but I like being young
15:12:58 <ynpvisitor98> Craig do you come alone this next time?
15:13:20 <CraigC(3)> ynpvisitor98, no, g/f and her son that has nevev been to YNP
15:13:32 <ynpvisitor98> that should be fun, hope you have a good time
15:13:40 <CraigC(3)> thanks
15:13:44 <Cooper(14)> :D
15:14:14 <GO GOGGLE (5)> now you know i am a 5yo
15:14:18 <Dave from B(9)> Craig, we are the same age?
15:14:48 <Cooper(14)> Graham, you are 5 years old?
15:14:57 <GO GOGGLE (5)> yes
15:14:58 <Kevin L™🌵> It was fun with my Brother last year. He had been to the park before but not as a gazer. Took him about 15m to get hooked by Depression.
15:15:01 <GO GOGGLE (5)> most of the time
15:15:21 <Cooper(14)> so you act like it
15:15:22 <GO GOGGLE (5)> and getting younger every day :)
15:15:25 <Cooper(14)> well then again so do i
15:15:29 <Kevin L™🌵> See what opera does to the mind....
15:15:32 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), I am 57, 58 tomorrow. So 56 is "younger"
15:15:44 <GO GOGGLE (5)> woohoo party time
15:15:46 <ynpvisitor98> so many 5 year olds at opera
15:15:54 <Kevin L™🌵> In dog years, I am dead.
15:16:02 <ynpvisitor98> wonder dog
15:16:24 <Cooper(14)'> this is me on my friends computer, as mine died
15:16:24 <Dave from B(9)> Yep, I'm younger:)
15:16:30 <CraigC(3)> :)
15:16:52 <Cooper(14)'> I love being 13, but I like to act like I am 5
15:17:01 <Cooper(14)'> I get what I want, when I want
15:17:23 <CraigC(3)> same as being retired and single
15:18:23 <Eric (4)> I moved myself to admin role in case it's needed :-D
15:18:45 <CraigC(3)> look at the steam at Chinese Spring
15:18:54 <GO GOGGLE (5)> still at work, probably going to be 30min late getting on the cam
15:18:58 <CraigC(3)> never mind, it stopped
15:19:02 <Eric (4)> I noticed that earlier Craig...seemed heavy
15:19:15 <CraigC(3)> it was shotting straight up
15:19:17 <Katie(10)> Okay, GG. I can stick around.
15:19:18 <CraigC(3)> shooting
15:19:38 <GO GOGGLE (5)> thanks Katie
15:20:16 <Eric (4)> I got myself some OR crocodile gaiters for bushwack hiking! Can't wait to try them!
15:21:11 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), how often do you wear your $25 socks? I wore mine to dinner the other night, and felt kind of nervous like I didn;t want to wear them out
15:21:33 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, now I know why you need such a large vehicle. You're a regular mobile sporting good store!
15:21:38 <Eric (4)> haha...I only paid $10 a pair for mine! But I wear them hiking
15:21:39 <CraigC(3)> LOL
15:21:44 <Cooper(14)'> Well school days over, I will be back on soon
15:21:53 <GO GOGGLE (5)> leaving now .. lets see how much time 34 miles takes today
15:21:57 <CraigC(3)> what.... $10 a pair?????
15:22:02 <Eric (4)> good luck GG
15:22:11 <Cooper(14)'> good luck GG
15:22:15 <Dave from B(9)> CraigC, I told you Eric's commission was steep
15:22:19 <Eric (4)> got 2 pairs for $20 after using a $10 discount I had
15:22:33 <Eric (4)> took a month to get to me...but I am loving them
15:22:43 <CraigC(3)> I guess I better follow up on that email you sent me
15:23:00 <Eric (4)> If your socks wear out Craig...request warrantee from darn tough, lifetime
15:23:50 <Cooper(14)'> okay, now im leaving, Bye all
15:24:33 <Eric (4)> wow...chinese spring over railing
15:24:41 <Dave from B(9)> What if you slide across your wood floor on a regular basis?
15:24:54 <Katie(10)> It's been very active today
15:25:00 <CraigC(3)> Dave from B(9), have you been watching Risky Business again?
15:25:10 <Eric (4)> If your socks wear out for any reason or you are not satisfied, they will replace them dave
15:25:22 <Dave from B(9)> No, but I think of that almost everytime I do it!
15:25:29 <Eric (4)> I have seen it from a distance Katie...but this zoom is very cool
15:25:36 <CraigC(3)> please tell us you have pants on
15:25:57 <Eric (4)> dark sunglasses and a dress shirt I bet!
15:26:08 <CraigC(3)> :-/
15:26:28 <Dave from B(9)> Yes, fully clothed, CraigC. Thanks for asking:P
15:26:43 <Dave from B(9)> Doesn't he have a tie on too?
15:27:11 <Eric (4)> I want to bushwack back to sylvan springs in Gibbon, looks like a cool area
15:27:43 <Eric (4)> I assume it's legal to backcountry hike to a thermal area and watch it from a distance?
15:27:44 <Dave from B(9)> Isn't it off limits?
15:27:51 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), do you pack a machete with you, too?
15:28:19 <Dave from B(9)> I suppose it is. How would you get there....Gibbon Meadow would be a huge wet mess
15:28:50 <Eric (4)> Kinda of...I use this piece:
15:29:12 <CraigC(3)> perfect
15:29:14 <Eric (4)> It can cut through about anything
15:29:23 <CraigC(3)> I can picture you as a character in a Conan movie
15:29:38 <Eric (4)> :-)
15:29:50 <Dave from B(9)> yep
15:29:56 <Dave from B(9)> SB 1523
15:30:00 <CraigC(3)> I have a gerber machete
15:30:02 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks, Michael
15:30:07 <Eric (4)> Yes, the wet meadow would be tough, but I assume you could skirt it on the north or south
15:30:11 <Dave from B(9)> :sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb::sb:
15:30:26 <CraigC(3)> sweeet
15:30:36 <Eric (4)> wow...his algorithm is ahead of the webicorder
15:30:40 <CraigC(3)> what's the link to the YNM that isnt delayed
15:31:02 <Eric (4)> I don't think there is one exactly Craig
15:31:23 <CraigC(3)> how does nlydeen always see it
15:31:25 <Dave from B(9)> Insider imformation:)
15:31:44 <CraigC(3)> is he like Paul Newman in The Sting?
15:31:51 <Eric (4)> It's an interface that lets you query the data directly Craig...not really for humans.
15:32:07 <CraigC(3)> or, more like Neo
15:33:13 <Michael> It looks like Steamboat is eruption on YFT (starting at 1508), if that helps. :P
15:34:04 <Dave from B(9)> I thought YFT = Giantess
15:35:05 <Michael> Yes, I'm just tossing out useless information to confuse the issue. And the signal on YFT doesn't look anything like what Giantess does.
15:35:07 <Jeff in Ct> It ain't Bulger
15:35:45 <CraigC(3)> OF
15:35:53 <Dave from B(9)> I wonder what would do that to the YTF
15:35:56 <Jeff in Ct> Whatever it is, still going strong at 15:36
15:36:04 <Katie(10)> Yup
15:36:17 <CraigC(3)> there we go, on YNM
15:36:22 <Dave from B(9)> wow
15:36:28 <Eric (4)> That is really weird
15:36:38 <Katie(10)> Very weird.
15:36:44 <Jeff in Ct> YNM seems especially strong
15:36:54 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks Craig. mice footprint
15:36:55 <Eric (4)> there we go...ynm updated
15:37:02 <Eric (4)> ohh, craig already said it :-D
15:37:24 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, the next one is for you!
15:38:09 <Michael> Time to go mow the lawn so I can yell at kids to get off it. See you all later!
15:38:33 <Jeff in Ct> Just started to rain, so no lawn mowing for me tonight ;)
15:38:47 <Dave from B(9)> Bye Michael
15:39:02 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, what are the odds of 3 daylight Sb's in a row?:)
15:39:31 <Eric (4)> Hopefully high :-D
15:39:47 <Eric (4)> 6d19h interval for this one
15:39:58 <Jeff in Ct> Treating SB as random, the since its near end of May, (0.5)^3 = 12.5%
15:40:17 <Jeff in Ct> no including civilian twilight
15:40:25 <Jeff in Ct> #not
15:40:29 <Eric (4)> So using that same interval, next one on Sunday 5/27 @ 1050
15:40:51 <Dave from B(9)> Interval will be shorter next time...go Saturday
15:40:56 <CraigC(3)> Eric and Dave, don't feel slighted that I didn't tag you on FB, you're already in tune here
15:41:00 <ynpvisitor101> Next one overnight, it’s due
15:41:10 <Eric (4)> Thanks Craig ;-D
15:41:17 <ynpvisitor101> Longer interval next
15:41:17 <Eric (4)> shhhh, 101 your fired!
15:41:41 <Eric (4)> Dang...long and overnight, now you are just talking dirty!
15:41:47 <ynpvisitor101> It likes to create gazer angst
15:42:11 <Eric (4)> quit taking it's job! :-D
15:42:23 <Dave from B(9)> Saturday 5/26 0900-2100
15:42:54 <Jeff in Ct> Is it worth adding a note about the YFT seismo?
15:43:38 <Dave from B(9)> Last 100 stats SB: Median falls 2 hours to 10d16h57m
15:43:55 <Dave from B(9)> Mean falls 57 min to 136d26m
15:44:41 <Dave from B(9)> Eric, imagine the number of people on the platform on a holiday weekend!
15:44:53 <Dave from B(9)> Bring your sharp elbows
15:45:49 <Jeff in Ct> Whatever YFT seismo recorded, its dampening down
15:47:09 <Rhodium House> YFT looks like Steamboat - that is strange.
15:47:17 <CraigC(3)> maybe someone my size was using a treadmill
15:47:43 <Jeff in Ct> I'm waiting for YFT and YNM to settle down, and then compare durations
15:49:32 <Dave from B(9)> Cam down
15:50:39 <Eric (4)> Will be nice to see steamboat logger data for this eruption finally!
15:52:13 <fishynp> Is there confirmation of a SB eruption?
15:53:00 <Dave from B(9)> On site confirmation won't be for a few hours
15:53:00 <Joe> only ynm, thats all
15:53:17 <Jake> wow, YFT. How long has the cam been down?
15:53:44 <Katie(10)> about 5 minutes - guesstimate
15:54:27 <fishynp> I'm only asking because the signal on YFT seems fishy. I'm wondering if this is something wrong with our telemetry. However, I don't currently see it on all stations.
15:55:27 <Dave from B(9)> Just the 2 stations show SB like footprint
15:56:14 <fishynp> YNR also shows it.
15:56:31 <Jeff in Ct> YFT and YNM are different earlier in the day, but both show increased noise like a bunch of SB minors.
15:57:07 <Jeff in Ct> Could YFT be some underground steam movement?
15:57:34 <fishynp> There is a water treatment plant somewhat close. I would guess that would be the most likely culprit.
15:58:08 <Dave from B(9)> Huh...YNR isn't on this dashboard
15:58:35 <Jake> but they would have to be doing something special at the water treatment plant as that has never been seen before
15:58:54 <Dave from B(9)> Jeff in CT, seismo DOES NOT show SB minors
15:59:13 <fishynp> Could be some sort of spring flush. Not sure.
16:00:34 <Jeff in Ct> Thanks for the clarification, Dave - I was wondering what all the noise is, I guess need to correlate with field reports on minors with actual seismo activity
16:01:01 <Dave from B(9)> Noise is mostly parking lot congestion
16:01:05 <fishynp> All the noise is people walking around the museum.
16:01:13 <Dave from B(9)> and that too
16:01:26 <fishynp> The station is in the museum.
16:01:38 <Jeff in Ct> Seismo is sensitive
16:01:48 <Eric (4)> fish's his seismo :-D
16:02:21 <fishynp> YFT seismo is up by the cell phone tower to the south of O.F.
16:02:31 <Dave from B(9)> yep....If I remember fish's explanation from awhile back; seismos can be set to measure different things
16:02:42 <ynpvisitor29> I hope Kat Is seeing Steamboat!
16:03:16 <fishynp> Signals on YNM and YNR sure look like a S.B. eruption. I'm not sure what YFT is all about.
16:03:25 <Eric (4)> That YFT trace is a weird one, looks like spring road plowing, but bigger
16:03:52 <Jeff in Ct> Boardwalk construction activity?
16:04:02 <Eric (4)> We will have confirmation on SB soon fish...but the trace looks pretty clear for a SB major
16:04:16 <Eric (4)> No, YFT seismo is way away from BW
16:04:39 <Dave from B(9)> Maybe, they are adding bandwidth to the cell tower:D
16:05:05 <Eric (4)> Reference Location:,-110.8323856,178m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281376
16:05:08 <fishynp> YFT seismo doesn't really pick up UGB signals except for some of the larger ones.
16:05:22 <CraigC(3)> YNR link, for those wondering;
16:05:40 <Dave from B(9)> Thanks CRaig
16:05:54 <Eric (4)> Not sure why I never added YNR here :-|
16:06:18 <Dave from B(9)> I thought it used to be here
16:06:20 <fishynp> An easy way to look at other seismo images is just to click on the one to your right, and just replace the name with whatever one you want in the link.
16:06:40 <CraigC(3)> thanks
16:06:47 <Jake> what would be a telemetry explanation for YFT?
16:07:33 <Cooper> hello again
16:07:38 <fishynp> Some times some radio noise just gets added to our signals but it usually goes on all stations (at least all on the same line) at the same time.
16:07:41 <Eric (4)> Yep, I could also just add the YNR one to the pulldown :-D
16:08:10 <fishynp> However, YFT is now all by itself on a cell-modem so it could still be noise even though it's not on other stations.
16:08:29 <Eric (4)> Is this an old UGB water treatment pool?,-110.819145,69a,35y,38.95t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281376
16:08:35 <Jeff in Ct> Where is YNR?
16:08:49 <fishynp> yes
16:09:55 <Cooper> Glad steamboat finally went
16:10:02 <Jake> interesting, thanks. it's some very structured noise :)
16:10:03 <fishynp> YNR is here:,-110.6793102,79m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281376
16:11:03 <Cooper> Is steamboat acctually erupting?
16:11:14 <Jeff in Ct> Thanks!
16:11:20 <Cooper> usually the trace is a lot shorter
16:12:02 <Dave from B(9)> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
16:12:10 <Cooper> bye dave
16:12:13 <Eric (4)> Night Dave...Go SB!
16:12:22 <Jeff in Ct> Later, Dave
16:12:43 <Eric (4)> Looks like a nice afternoon for a SB eruption too!
16:13:22 <fishynp> Here's a image of the YFT data filtered between 20-40 Hz (a band that usually contains a lot of hydrothermal energy):
16:13:28 <fishynp> doesn't look natural to me.
16:14:11 <Cooper> thats odd
16:14:13 <Cooper> where is that
16:14:31 <Jake> do you have contacts that can help figure out the source? just curious
16:14:36 <fishynp> Same plot for Norris Museum:
16:14:47 <fishynp> That looks like a SB eruption.
16:14:50 <Jake> if they did put in new communication equipment
16:15:30 <Cooper> It does not look like a SB to me, the last eruptions were a lot shorter on YNM
16:15:37 <Eric (4)> That is odd
16:15:43 <fishynp> I'll be in O.F. Thursday giving a lecture so I can try to find out.
16:16:15 <Eric (4)> Nice...lot of YVO people in basin this weekend?
16:19:12 <Jake> jealous so many will be there
16:19:44 <CraigC(3)> I typically avoid Memorial Day, but only time g/f and her son could go
16:19:54 <Jake> my only satisfaction comes in knowing how Steamboat will destroy everyone's good time by waiting until Tuesday to erupt
16:20:03 <fishynp> Based on the seismic signals at YNM and YNR, I'm 95% sure there was a SB eruption. It very much looks like one.
16:20:22 <Jake> only 95% :D
16:20:24 <CraigC(3)> Occams Razor
16:20:48 <fishynp> I've been wrong before so I left 5% wiggle room.
16:22:07 <Katie(10)> Just because that bison is laying down doesn't mean he is immobile...
16:26:31 <Eric (4)> I would love to see a trace that looked anything like that from YNM that wasn't a SB eruption :-D
16:27:13 <CraigC(3)> :thumbsup:
16:28:16 <CraigC(3)> love the tour bus down in the corner
16:28:34 <CraigC(3)> I want one of those, if it is what I am thinking of
16:29:28 <Eric (4)> Yep...xanterra yellow bus tour
16:30:37 <Eric (4)> Guess they are waiting until last possible second to be done with OF BW...
16:32:48 <Eric (4)>
16:32:55 <LindaG> Daisy looks like its brewing
16:33:19 <GO GOGGLE (%)> home now
16:33:27 <GO GOGGLE (%)> i can take the cam
16:33:33 <Katie(10)> Okay, have fun. :)
16:33:40 <GO GOGGLE (5)> thats better
16:33:41 <GO GOGGLE (5)> thanks
16:34:33 <GO GOGGLE (5)> did i miss anything?
16:34:54 <LindaG> No just steamboat
16:34:54 <Katie(10)> A long period of cam down - that's about all
16:35:10 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), I remember reading reports from some gazers about Fairyland a few years back. I went on Google Earth, and realized I would probably never see that are
16:35:13 <CraigC(3)> area
16:35:44 <Eric (4)> FYI...tantalus reporting spike, I think we have confirmation.
16:35:57 <LindaG> Eric (4), 👍
16:37:19 <Eric (4)> I agree Craig....not sure if I would make fairyland either....that is quite the schlaug for a bunch of dead cones. But broad creek does have some thermal hot spots over there, so who knows.
16:38:08 <Eric (4)> should have daisy any moment
16:38:15 <GO GOGGLE (5)> i hipe people enjoyed the Tantalus Spike indicator
16:38:32 <Eric (4)> TSI :-D
16:38:57 <Eric (4)> I am sure that is why they are all there graham
16:39:18 <Eric (4)> Actually having paper sailboat races
16:40:57 <Jake> I've been to Fairyland
16:42:15 <ynpvisitor23> Totem Forest is the original name :)
16:42:48 <GO GOGGLE (5)> so roll forward 5 days .... and i arrive as the wait starts?
16:43:42 <Joe> DAISY
16:43:46 <Jake> Travertine Totem Forest
16:44:10 <Jake> the power of marketing changed that to Fairyland Basin
16:44:18 <ynpvisitor23> yes, correct jake
16:44:41 <Michael> It's always interesting to see whose name "wins."
16:45:38 <CraigC(3)> Jake, how long was your trip out and back?
16:46:50 <Jake> 3 days car-to-car, 1 day from Joseph's Coat to Fairyland and back
16:48:40 <CraigC(3)> Graham?
16:48:50 <GO TCDSI (5)> yes?
16:48:59 <CraigC(3)> what does it mean
16:49:10 <Cooper(14)> um, what does it mean?
16:49:20 <GO TCDSI (5)> Tantalus Creek Discharge Spike Indicator
16:49:24 <Michael> Same here. I don't think there's a 2-day excursion that works well.
16:49:27 <ynpvisitor23> tantalus creek discharge spike indicator?
16:49:27 <CraigC(3)> awesome
16:49:30 <Cooper(14)> oh
16:49:40 <Cooper(14)> nice acronym
16:49:42 <GO TCDSI (5)> catchy, huh?
16:49:53 <Eric (4)> ahh, doing it in a couple days would be totally doable
16:50:26 <Jake> 2-day would mean hiking the last 8 trail miles in the dark if you wanted to have time to explore around Fairyland
16:50:26 <Eric (4)> There are a lot of other things I want to do in the park before that one :-D
16:51:16 <GO TCDSI (5)> i wonder who was on-site today?
16:51:19 <Eric (4)> sylvan springs area actually looks pretty awesome...of course I would totally view it from a distance if I was out there, per the rules.
16:51:53 <LindaG> I hoping Kat made it there
16:52:20 <Eric (4)> I assume Kat would be there, Tom, Udo, the beverlys, ....?
16:52:22 <LindaG> Havent heard from her since the first night whe arrived
16:52:42 <Eric (4)> Probably at SB waiting the whole time Linda :-D
16:52:45 <CraigC(3)> Jake, were you with Lee and Rocco on their tour of Fairyland?
16:53:01 <Jake> no, I've been 3 times but not with them
16:53:02 <LindaG> Hope so
16:53:04 <GO TCDSI (5)> Lori isnt here in chat ... no, she couldnt have gone?
16:53:36 <CraigC(3)> Lori is probably still at work, no?
16:53:55 <LindaG> I dont think she was there. Said she received a txt about it
16:53:55 <GO TCDSI (5)> maybe, not sure of her schedule
16:54:19 <ynpvisitor23> So Cistern filling up fast didn't portend a super short interval, I guess
16:55:45 <GO TCDSI (5)> so #17 this year, 43 in 12 months, 49 in the series. Big 50 coming up next.....
16:56:33 <Michael> I hope it's got something special planned. Like 11am on a warm day.
16:57:17 <GO TCDSI (5)> median dropped by ~2h
16:57:30 <GO TCDSI (5)> 11am on SUnday?
16:57:52 <GO TCDSI (5)> that woudl be fitting, since first observed start was on Sunday of Mem day
16:57:53 <Cooper(14)> how many SB eruptions have we had this year?
16:58:00 <CraigC(3)> I really don't want to be hanging out with 100+ people in a corral for hours
16:58:08 <GO TCDSI (5)> 17 cooper
16:58:32 <GO TCDSI (5)> Craig - theres room in the treed area at Steerage
16:58:54 <CraigC(3)> Biscuit Basin actually sounds nicer :)
16:58:55 <Michael> 11am Sunday sounds good, provided you'll be there already.
16:58:57 <Eric (4)> Yes...2 years in a row on Memorial Day Sunday would be pretty awesome!
16:59:12 <GO TCDSI (5)> there were not that many people last year ...... and weather may keep the numbers down
16:59:41 <CraigC(3)> we'll check it out, but if it is crowded, I won't stay very long
16:59:47 <GO TCDSI (5)> Dave might miss it tho
17:00:07 <CraigC(3)> I just talked to Pat, she is planning to be there
17:00:19 <Eric (4)> The crowd is fun Craig, it can get a little rowdy later in the day though :-D
17:00:32 <Michael> If we can get a lunatic North Goggle series on Memorial Day Saturday, that will keep us camera-gazers entertained too.
17:00:33 <GO TCDSI (5)> there was always a sense of calm at steerage. there are also the turns in the boardwalk to sit and only a short distance when the screaming starts
17:01:08 <GO TCDSI (5)> haha yes Michael that was amusing, the geysers playing tricks on us. DaveM enjoyed it
17:01:12 <Eric (4)> Steerage was calm because it was in the shade and everyone was asleep :-P
17:01:48 <CraigC(3)> Eric (4), how many others can fit on the boardwalk when you are there?
17:02:30 <Eric (4)> Now that I have lost some least one extra :-D
17:02:48 <GO TCDSI (5)> is there a weight limit?
17:02:54 <CraigC(3)> I meant laying down.... don;t you go up the switchbacks?
17:03:35 <Eric (4)> ohh, there is a nice bench down there
17:04:36 <CraigC(3)> hopefully I can catch a lot of you there at the same time
17:04:42 <GO TCDSI (5)> the news stories of SB have died down, so maybe not too many new peeps showing up
17:05:15 <GO TCDSI (5)> timing wise i may checkin and then go up to Norris
17:05:18 <Eric (4)> So do you have long or short hair now Craig?
17:05:27 <GO TCDSI (5)> should still only be about 5 days
17:05:28 <Eric (4)> Your picture earlier confused me
17:05:52 <CraigC(3)> LOL... little past my shoulders.... I got a little trim to look less scary
17:06:37 <CraigC(3)> 'it was always short until I hit 25 years at work, then I stopped cutting it
17:06:42 <CraigC(3)> OF
17:07:07 <Eric (4)> Nice
17:07:21 <Eric (4)> wish I had your hair :-( jealous
17:07:37 <GO TCDSI (5)> so are Luke and Micah the only two gazers not at SB?
17:07:37 <CraigC(3)> I'd trade for some height
17:08:15 <CraigC(3)> I just talked to Micah, too.... he is super busy with training
17:09:05 <CraigC(3)> hopefully I can run into him this week, he's cool
17:09:32 <Eric (4)> Anyone know if Clark will be in the basin this weekend?
17:10:19 <GO TCDSI (5)> Tara has to work, so she wouldnt be there either
17:12:08 <CraigC(3)> no idea on Clark, he doesn't live too far from me, I'd like to meet him, too
17:12:13 <Jake> guys, stop. you're making me think SB will erupt this weekend after all
17:12:34 <Jake> gotta run, good luck with, um, Lion
17:12:41 <CraigC(3)> cya Jake
17:12:44 <GO TCDSI (5)> Sunday......or Monday morning
17:12:49 <GO TCDSI (5)> be there
17:13:12 <GO TCDSI (5)> no need to run now
17:13:18 <CraigC(3)> I'm leaving on Sunday..... unless we change our minds and stay one more day
17:13:27 <GO TCDSI (5)> :)
17:13:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Is Craig the new Dave?
17:14:37 <Michael> I'm sure he'll be happy to accept the honor. As long as it comes with unlimited misspelling permissions.
17:14:46 <CraigC(3)> :)
17:15:16 <CraigC(3)> see that line.... what is that grate thing over by the river at the end of it
17:15:54 <CraigC(3)> there is a cement block, and a grate or something below it
17:16:01 <GO TCDSI (5)> the line on the right half way up?
17:16:24 <CraigC(3)> yeah, that goes towards where the army camp was
17:16:52 <GO TCDSI (5)> here?
17:16:57 <CraigC(3)> yeah
17:17:11 <CraigC(3)> you see it walking between lion and grand
17:17:18 <CraigC(3)> and on google earth
17:17:27 <GO TCDSI (5)> goes up to solitary?
17:17:39 <CraigC(3)> really?
17:17:47 <CraigC(3)> what is it
17:18:02 <GO TCDSI (5)> water for the bathing pool?
17:18:15 <CraigC(3)> wow
17:18:40 <GO TCDSI (5)> theres also a pipe near Plume
17:18:44 <Eric (4)> osprey
17:21:20 <CraigC(3)> here it is, I took a pic last week;
17:21:54 <Eric (4)> Yep...I think that is the old pool ara
17:21:56 <Eric (4)> area
17:22:31 <CraigC(3)> interesting
17:23:03 <Eric (4)> alright...joes webcam reference image is updated on this page
17:23:14 <Eric (4)>
17:23:20 <Kevin L™🌵> There used to be a swimming pool there
17:23:48 <GO TCDSI (5)> thanks Joe and Eric
17:24:09 <Eric (4)> A hot springs fed pool in the UGB would be pretty awesome :-D
17:24:16 <Eric (4)> I love the one at banff
17:24:22 <LindaG> Nice! Thank you Joe and eric!
17:24:30 <Kevin L™🌵>
17:24:30 <Eric (4)> and many of the others in the canadian rockies
17:25:53 <CraigC(3)> Kevin L™🌵, nice, I hadn;t seen that one
17:27:18 <CraigC(3)> here is a different bathhouse at OF;
17:27:30 <Eric (4)> Radium hot springs is one of my favorites:
17:27:35 <CraigC(3)> I htink this was closer to OF mound
17:27:57 <Eric (4)> Not the one Graham listed
17:28:03 <Eric (4)> different buildings I believe

18:20:33 <Lori S> Was reading back through some of what I missed. Yes, I am still at work. No, no :sb: for me today.
18:21:15 <Lori S> Would LOVE to hear from someone what Cistern looked like all day prior to the major...
18:23:56 <Ryan> depression
18:25:25 <Lori S> Sunday at 11... Look for me at Decker. I don';t like crowds. LOL
18:25:51 <ynpvisitor43> TCDSI??
18:26:46 <ynpvisitor43> what is that? Glad Suzanne and HK were there.
18:26:51 <Cooper(14)> I think it means, Tantalus creek discharge strike indicator
18:26:58 <Lori S> tantalus creek discharge spike indicaor
18:27:10 <ynpvisitor43> ha ha, really?
18:27:18 <Lori S> *indicator
18:27:23 <ynpvisitor43> oh spike, that makes sense
18:27:38 <Lori S> yup, read ^ :(
18:27:51 <ynpvisitor43> there wasn't much of one
18:27:59 <ynpvisitor43> wonder how long it had water?
18:28:00 <Lori S> saw that
18:28:08 <ynpvisitor43> Suzanne will fill us in
18:28:12 <Lori S> time will tell
18:28:26 <ynpvisitor43> she writes good comments
18:28:43 <Lori S> I will repeat... would love to know what Cistern looked like this morning pre-major
18:29:05 <ynpvisitor43> well maybe you need to contact someone that was THERE then
18:29:22 <ynpvisitor43> they don't have an "ask questions" part to entries
18:29:37 <Ryan> ....damn
18:29:44 <ynpvisitor43> Tom C lives in west, make friends
18:29:54 <Lori S> :thumbsup: don't know anyone but Tom really
18:30:06 <ynpvisitor43> Udo? Was he there?
18:30:12 <Lori S> Tom knows me but I never see him excet at SB LOL
18:30:37 <ynpvisitor43> I hope you can find out Lori
18:31:01 <Ryan> Hey, Lori, I like your questions, and think they are valid things to wonder about - regardless of where you wonder about them.
18:31:10 <Lori S> Living vicariously through those that can pend multiple days at SB :)
18:31:34 <Lori S> *spend
18:31:43 <Lori S> Thanks, Ryan
18:33:00 <ynpvisitor43> I meant no offense, I was just saying that chat people cannot answer it right now
18:34:11 <Michael> The listserv can be a good place to ask questions too. That way you're not limited to who's on chat right at the moment.
18:34:17 <Lori S> 43, I know. I was hoping someone here knows someone there they can ask later. But I wasn't direct about that. LOL
18:36:01 <Lori S> not on the listserv... how do I go there?
18:36:57 <Lori S> Hey Ryan, ever heard of Shell Creek Cave near Ennis?
18:37:12 <Ryan> I have, but never been
18:37:37 <Lori S> I have friend here in town that wants to go. He found it on the interweb.
18:37:55 <Lori S> public or private land?
18:38:14 <Ryan> Don't know, that would be a Will B question
18:38:26 <Lori S> Ahh, OK, thx
18:38:58 <Michael> The listserv is run as a Google Group these days. The "Message board" link on this page should take you there.
18:39:01 <Michael>!forum/gosa-discussion-board
18:39:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Heinrich usually posts good stuff on his blog but it may take a few days before it shows up. Link is
18:40:32 <Lori S> Thx Michael & Kevin
18:42:33 <Lori S> I hate those "verify you are a human" things. My vision is not compatible with those tiny phots!
18:42:47 <Lori S> But I passed this one somehow
18:43:29 <Kevin L™🌵> This week I may not pass that one even if I click the right box.
18:44:10 <Lori S> I will have to finish joining after work. This Mac at work is SLOW
18:44:51 <Lori S> Once on, I will try not to embarass myself.:p
18:45:55 <ynpvisitor43> you'll be fine
18:46:35 <Lori S> I have never claimed to know what I'm talking about. hehe Time to close up shop. Go Steamboat!
18:47:53 <ynpvisitor48> is that rain or snow?
18:48:04 <Lori S> yes
18:48:19 <Lori S> Bye all
18:48:30 <Michael> Bye Lori.
19:17:38 <Ryan> FYI LS has been IE for about three hours now.
19:18:57 <Michael> Good thing I didn't call it near-start.
19:19:37 <Ryan> Haha, saw it, figured it was alRADY taken care of
19:26:08 <ynpvisitor11> Looks like it's a nice night
19:28:20 <Michael> There's been raindrops and snowflakes on and off, but it's nice now. Good for making steam clouds.
19:28:43 <LindaG> 😊
19:31:10 <Eric (4)> That is quite the steam burst in the lower left corner of the static near BH:
19:31:34 <Eric (4)> Just a few minutes ago...not sure what would cause that
19:33:10 <Eric (4)> Oh well, heading to grocery store for trip food shopping!
19:41:32 <Cooper(14)> Anybody know what the image Eric Posted was?
19:45:02 <Michael> It was taken by the webcam in the Old Faithful visitor center.
19:45:58 <Cooper(14)> yes, but what geyser/spring caused that weird eruption/steam plume
19:46:21 <GO TCDSI (5)> Turban?
19:49:43 <Michael> The whole basin is pretty steamy today. I'm not sure anything in the picture is weird or out of place.
19:50:13 <Cooper(14)> ok, makes some sense, I mean the humidity is 73%
19:55:12 <GO TCDSI (5)> wow bulgers hole d=7m 6-10'
19:55:55 <GO TCDSI (5)> started only 1min after Bulger

19:56:51 <ynpvisitor110> You’ll have to keep watch of it
19:57:25 <GO TCDSI (5)> i have never seen it erupt
19:57:44 <GO TCDSI (5)> bulger now
20:00:24 <GO TCDSI (5)> :thumbsup:
20:00:34 <GO TCDSI (5)> we could see it if it erupted now
20:02:31 <Michael> maybe next time.
20:03:26 <GO TCDSI (5)> steamboat details on GT
20:05:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Film at 11
20:05:55 <GO TCDSI (5)> NV went to steam after 3min, thats quick
20:06:35 <GO TCDSI (5)> and SV continued with water and steam switching. Last year SV went to steam before NV but it got longer through the year
20:06:45 <GO TCDSI (5)> Turban?
20:16:30 <ynpvisitor83> Pretty scene
20:20:41 <GO TCDSI (5)> it is nice lighting now
20:21:25 <Michael> Makes OF look really good.
