05:50:03 <CraigC> no, need to try and figure out why my weed-eater is leaking gas and see if I can fix it instead of buying a new one

06:11:34 <LindaG> Thank you for doing that joe!
06:12:24 <Joe> It was fun Got to exercise my GIMP skills :)
06:12:44 <LindaG> 😊
06:15:44 <GO MORNING (4)> thabks Joe. Little Cub should be a bit to the right, its lined up with Lioness/Big cub steamer area
06:15:58 <GO MORNING (4)> NG needs to move, its on the other side of the boardwalk
06:16:04 <GO MORNING (4)> by the benches
06:16:33 <GO MORNING (4)> Also Depression should be a little to the left, although theres nothing else there so no big deal
06:16:55 <Joe> Not sure of Grand last night, it was the only thing that came close,
06:17:02 <CraigC> just steam from riverside?
06:17:25 <CraigC> oh, already went, ignore me
06:18:14 <Joe> I thought NG was inside the "crook" of the BW
06:19:52 <Joe> I;ll move LC and Depression and maybe put an X on NG, thanks Graham
06:20:05 <GO MORNING (4)> you can see the BW by Lion and the bench there. NG is on the left side of the bench
06:20:50 <GO MORNING (4)> you are lined up with the right side of Heart Spring
06:21:44 <Joe> thanks
07:02:09 <Cooper(13)> good morning
07:04:01 <Joe> INDY

07:07:07 <ynpvisitor51> O wow early
07:07:08 <ynpvisitor75> This year, Yellowstone will be fine, right?
07:07:26 <Cooper(13)> yeah not quite in its window yet
07:08:52 <ynpvisitor75> I am afraid in China.
07:10:54 <ynpvisitor75> Once the Yellowstone volcano erupts, the impact will be global.
07:11:08 <Kent> Thanks Joe. Nice to wake up to.
07:11:28 <Cooper(13)> true, but probably not going to happen for a very long time
07:11:29 <Joe> yw

07:18:12 <Lori S> Still got it here
07:18:38 <LindaGp> I'm good
07:18:39 <ynpvisitor33> If Grand and Riverside cooperate, it would be a great way to start the day in the basin! Then, off to breakfast ;)
07:19:20 <Kent> I always wonder with my delay if I just don't know it's dead yet :(
07:20:12 <LindaGp> I'm on same delay
07:20:20 <Cooper(13)> same
07:20:24 <Joe> The cam has not been lost yet
07:20:34 <Kent> :thumbsup:
07:20:41 <lori lurking> I have 30 seconds, at least that's what it says...I still have it.
07:21:00 <LindaGp> Me to
07:21:13 <CraigC> 75 went back in their bomb shelter
07:21:19 <LindaGp> Well gotta run, thx
07:21:20 <Cooper(13)> I have 30 seconds and BH is in its weak steamphase
07:21:28 <Cooper(13)> bye Linda
07:21:34 <lori lurking> And thanks for the text, I checked in earlier and wasn't worried about watching too closely. I appreciate you all giving the heads up!
07:22:03 <Dave from B™> I'm glad I was late to the room.
07:22:43 <CraigC> a couple of quacks invaded the FB group last night going on about the darkness in the SB eruption
07:23:15 <CraigC> "the sky is falling" LMAO
07:23:36 <Lori S> This Lori needs to lurk off to get ready for work. See u all later.
07:24:08 <CraigC> 2 different Loris?
07:28:16 <Chancellor> Good Morning Everyone
07:28:27 <Chancellor> looks like I missed :bee:
07:31:01 <CraigC> hey Chancellor
07:36:34 <Rice> I think it is interesting the temp drop on Steamboat almost 30 C, after the eruption, worth watching to see how long it takes to reocover, might be another indicator.
07:36:58 <ynpvisitor23> .
07:39:28 <Joe> cam down
07:40:08 <Dave from B™> There has been interesting conversation on the FB Yellowstone Bears site. The question of whether locations of bears should be given. With the advance of technology, including more cell service, comes more opportunities for the public to do no good
07:40:13 <Joe> up
07:40:39 <Dave from B™> Kind of like the discussion of backcountry thermal areas before they became off limits
07:42:00 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I believe the lack of Park staff/rangers/LEOs is the most concerning issue for the safety of bears. Tourists will always be stupid
07:43:10 <Dave from B™> CraigC, what was LE like when you were watching the sow with 3 COY?
07:44:54 <CraigC> what LE??? one government vehicle drove by and just kept driving
07:45:33 <CraigC> yet they knew about it, thus all the radio chatter while we were at SB
07:45:37 <Dave from B™> That's odd. Didn't there used to be volunteers who were at every animal jam?
07:46:20 <CraigC> there were volunteers the night I left you guys, but the next day there was nobody there keeping people back
07:46:52 <Dave from B™> That's unacceptable
07:47:24 <CraigC> maybe this week more staff will arrive
07:48:14 <Dave from B™> Seasonal staff need to start sooner since visitation has increased. I know many teachers are seasonals; they are still teaching
07:48:28 <Dave from B™> That's a problem
07:49:57 <CraigC> I worry about having only volunteers, as I have watched rangers almost have to go hands on with people that just ignore their directions trying to get up close pictures of wildlife
07:50:25 <Dave from B™> I agree, Craig but if NPS won't pay for them.
07:50:30 <sparekitty> good morning!! i am still excited from seeing SB yesterday!
07:50:41 <Dave from B™> Congrats!
07:50:42 <CraigC> kitty, congrats!!!!!
07:51:19 <sparekitty> my dad and i drove from missoula, in no rush, and then just chilled on our drive through the park. He walks slowly so we ambled up to SB
07:51:34 <CraigC> was Kat there?
07:52:12 <sparekitty> i saw people getting excited about some play, and i thought "i've seen bigger than that with no eruption..."
07:52:32 <sparekitty> i am sorry to say that i don't know what any of you lovely people look like IRL.
07:52:49 <sparekitty> and then, seriously 10 seconds after we walked up, SB went off.
07:52:55 <CraigC> wowowow
07:52:59 <sparekitty> so incredible!!!
07:54:10 <CraigC> I just ask when I get to features.... eg "which one of you is Dave?"
07:54:46 <Dave from B™> Yeah...don't be shy
07:55:07 <CraigC> and then Dave walked behind some trees
07:55:42 <Dave from B™> :D:D. I thought I started running
07:55:46 <sparekitty> that is a great idea. i was at SB recently-ish and saw geyser nerd looking people and when i mentioned the geyser cam, people just looked at me weird. and yesterday, i was just too damn excited--as was everyone else.
07:56:10 <CraigC> "geyser nerd looking people" hahahahaha
07:56:12 <sparekitty> i have no idea when it started. by the time i gathered my wits enough to think about it, it was 3:26.
07:56:41 <sparekitty> i posted on geyser gazer FB page.
07:56:57 <CraigC> floppy hats, radios, little detective notepads, backpacks
07:57:38 <Cooper(13)> LMAO
07:58:23 <Dave from B™> For those of you headed to the basin this week, DO NOT forget about LGB....Longer Fountain intervals and longer durations may indicate Morning is ready to go
07:58:57 <Eric (4)> Good Morning
07:59:27 <CraigC> hey Eric, one of the geyser nerd looking people
07:59:48 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
07:59:52 <Eric (4)> Hey, i am super fashionable and hot while waiting for geysers :-P
08:00:25 <CraigC> sparekitty, I don't see your post on FB, what is your first name
08:00:40 <sparekitty> diane robinson
08:00:54 <CraigC> ohhhhh, yeah, great posts
08:01:01 <sparekitty> i've just been sparekitty here since like 2008 so i go with that.
08:01:23 <CraigC> I thought you lived in SLC
08:01:27 <Eric (4)> This is what I look like while waiting for geysers:
08:01:39 <CraigC> Eric (4), hahahah
08:01:50 <Cooper(13)> Nice Eric, LMAO
08:02:00 <sparekitty> nope. i live most of the time in pasadena, calif and have a house near craig montana. currently working in big sky at a friend's house.
08:02:10 <Eric (4)> I saw your video sparekitty...congrats!
08:02:14 <sparekitty> very funny, eric.
08:02:35 <Joe> I have to leave at 0830 I hope a camop will be available to take the cam
08:02:36 <CraigC> sparekitty, ok, we are friends on FB, though
08:02:53 <Dave from B™> Eric, you looked a lot different the last time I saw you
08:03:06 <Cooper(13)> What is the websited for the "FB"
08:03:14 <CraigC> I can;t wait to meet Eric now
08:03:30 <Eric (4)> :-D
08:04:05 <CraigC> Cooper(13), google search "Facebook", it is fairly popular
08:04:16 <Cooper(13)> oh thats what FB stands for
08:04:16 <Dave from B™> hahaha
08:04:30 <Joe> Eric I am working on another revision of the ref image, Graham pointed a few things out to me, It wont be until late as I have appointments to keep
08:05:01 <Joe> Soon I'll get it right and won't have to bother you
08:06:10 <Dave from B™> Joe, if you just make sure Steamboat isn't on it this time, it will be perfect:)
08:06:50 <Joe> :)
08:07:32 <Dave from B™> I was thinking about the increased cell coverage last night and how it could change gazing
08:07:52 <Dave from B™> Just think of how many more would go to GF if they knew when overflow started
08:09:02 <Eric (4)> Yes, it will definitely change what gets reported and how often.
08:12:12 <Sam> Holy Jet
08:12:24 <Dave from B™> It does that
08:12:35 <Sam> :)
08:12:42 <Eric (4)> Micah really wants a morning eruption :-D
08:13:22 <Eric (4)> I had to add a feature here specifically so jet wouldn't clog up all the current eruption slots.
08:14:44 <CraigC> :lion:
08:14:58 <CraigC> Lion ie
08:15:02 <Eric (4)> I hope MT turns off and let's Morning come out and play
08:15:37 <CraigC> did anyone see the start, I was on another page
08:15:57 <Eric (4)> No, my camera was frozen and I didn't realize it until you called it
08:16:13 <CraigC> mine was too, and I reloaded and there it was
08:17:14 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
08:17:21 <CraigC> hey Jarno
08:17:33 <Eric (4)> Hi Jarno
08:17:43 <Joe> Lion was 0811
08:17:47 <ynpvisitor23> .
08:17:58 <Eric (4)> I thought you left Joe :-D
08:18:01 <CraigC> Joe, thanks
08:18:22 <ynpvisitor999®> must've been a minor, because Lion seemed like it tried a minute ago
08:18:36 <Joe> Craic change it to 0911 exact
08:18:41 <Eric (4)> Guess your Personal Torture helper is close :-D
08:18:46 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:18:59 <Joe> I'm Leaving at 0830
08:19:16 <Eric (4)> Grotto is ie back there
08:19:45 <Joe> Craig )811 exact
08:19:53 <Joe> 0811
08:20:28 <Eric (4)> The temp logger graph for SB is interesting....I had no idea that the runoff kept the logger that warm.
08:20:29 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, looks like your experience with your Dave keyboard isn't too good...
08:20:44 <Joe> Ok you under stood, thats good cause I did not :(
08:20:50 <Eric (4)> Will be interesting to see if it builds to the next eruption.
08:21:36 <Dave from B™> I know people at the bridge have commented that the runoff is warm
08:22:08 <ynpvisitor999®> unfortunately the Nuphar Lake logger seems to be broken
08:22:56 <Joe> I think a lion was missed while I was chasing BEES :)
08:24:00 <sparekitty> there were so many things i wanted to see while at SB but we were drenched (couldn't tell if it was just SB or rain too), my dad couldn't stand for any longer (he's 74) and i had to take him back to the car, where i was pleased to see that it SB didn't carry to our car. i rinsed the windows anyway.
08:24:26 <J. Californium> Morning all
08:24:44 <sparekitty> we also got pelted with small rocks during the start of the eruption.
08:24:50 <Eric (4)> Glad you got it and your car didn't get ruined SK
08:25:01 <Eric (4)> where you on the upper platform?
08:25:18 <J. Californium> I wanted my nickname to be "Hotel Californium", but I think that's too long. "Hotel Cf" would have worked, though.
08:25:20 <Eric (4)> or was the wind shifted toward you?
08:25:29 <sparekitty> we were on the lower platform at first and because of the wind, we moved to the upper platform really quickly.
08:25:55 <Eric (4)> ahhh, makes sense that your car was safe and got hit with small debri
08:25:58 <sparekitty> we could see VERY clearly from the upper platform
08:26:11 <Joe> sparekitty I under stand your issue with Dad, I am also 74 :)
08:26:19 <Eric (4)> wind direction at SB is critical for many reasons :-D
08:26:46 <sparekitty> he had a GREAT time. it was so cool to share it with him. he's been going to the park even longer than me ;)
08:26:47 <Eric (4)> I am bringing my own chair this year! Ready for the long sit
08:26:58 <Eric (4)> Nice...glad he got it!
08:27:04 <Dave from B™> Eric, no chair parking on holiday weekends
08:27:19 <J. Californium> Hey, did anyone diagnose that strange YFT seismic signal yesterday?
08:27:22 <Eric (4)> What does that even mean Dave? You can't sit in a chair?
08:28:05 <Eric (4)> It will take up a smaller space than me laying down on the BW for sure :-D
08:28:56 <Eric (4)> fishynp thought it was a man made vibration
08:29:16 <Joe> I have released cam controls, Bye
08:29:25 <Eric (4)> good luck Joe
08:29:40 <Dave from B™> Everyone has to stand up straight and move to the right so 300 can fit on the middle platform
08:30:27 <Eric (4)> Thats fine when it begins to erupt...throw all those seats overboard as far as I am concerned :-D
08:30:40 <Eric (4)> Grand!
08:30:43 <Eric (4)> camop please
08:31:06 <Eric (4)> anyone here have keys to the camop secret clubhouse?
08:31:14 <Eric (4)> Thanks :-D
08:31:25 <Dave from B™> I did enjoy the lack of a crowd at my SB eruption. I was surprised some gazers were already cranky answering tourist questions
08:31:34 <Joe> I was just walking away
08:31:39 <Eric (4)> :-D
08:31:55 <Eric (4)> Get out a here Joe, you are going to be late :-P
08:32:49 <Joe> Yes, but late for Torture :) not so bad :)
08:32:51 <Eric (4)> What a fuzzball of an eruption
08:35:04 <ynpvisitor69> Sounds like SB water phase keeps getting shorter. I wonder if it is all steam if that will count as an eruption?
08:35:58 <ynpvisitor23> ynpvisitor69, if Cistern drops, then I think so!
08:36:11 <Dave from B™> 69, Are eruptions getting shorter or is calculating the length so subjective?
08:36:59 <ynpvisitor69> Sounds like water phase keeps getting shorter. Yours was pretty short, wasn’t it?
08:37:32 <sparekitty> i think the water was short but i don't know how long it is supposed to be.
08:37:51 <Joe> ~8min
08:37:52 <sparekitty> and it seemed like there was water at the start, and then water again, near when we left.
08:37:56 <Lori S> May 13 was about 10 minutes
08:38:32 <Lori S> it has been returnin to water throughput the series since last spring, I believe. Not every eruption, but many
08:38:39 <ynpvisitor69> Not sure there is any supposed here, yet last years’ were longer
08:39:28 <Lori S> It returned to water 5/13 maybe within 30 minutes (guess)...cuz i got drenched
08:39:30 <ynpvisitor69> And not the returns to mix water phase, will be interesting to get reports from today
08:40:10 <sparekitty> the water could have been that long. and as lori mentions above, there was water again after about 30 minutes. i was there about 45 minutes total.
08:40:16 <Joe> @nd?
08:40:23 <Joe> 2nd?
08:41:11 <Joe> Could not tell for sure
08:41:56 <Lori S> I also experienced a return to water in the steam phase on June 15. Got drenced several hours past the start.
08:42:06 <Lori S> sorry, 6/15/18
08:43:44 <Joe> OK, now I"m Gone
08:44:01 <Lori S> bye Joe
08:44:49 <ynpvisitor69> The last three eruptions were 10m water, 8 min water, and yesterday even less for concerted play (perhaps only 3m)
08:45:22 <Lori S> 69 that's interesting, wow
08:45:51 <ynpvisitor69> It is changing it seems
08:46:31 <Lori S> IMO it has definitely changed it's lead up to eruption behavior. Waiting to hear more about yesterday though
08:46:55 <ynpvisitor69> Will be interesting to see what happens next. I bet the next watch will have some all night watchers on it
08:47:45 <ynpvisitor69> Lori I did not see a question from you in Google group. Did you ask it?
08:48:02 <Lori S> No. I fell asleep in my chaor after dinner. LOL
08:48:11 <Lori S> *chair
08:48:27 <Lori S> Will get on there today once I get work taken care of.
08:48:46 <ynpvisitor69> I’m interested to know too
08:49:07 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
08:58:29 <Lori S> So, I posted it on the listserv. Why can't I see it? Is it checked before it goes live?
08:59:22 <Dave from B™> Lori, what are you asking?
09:00:12 <Lori S> If Cistern was a tad low prior to the major yesterday, and if so, for how long.
09:03:23 <ynpvisitor23> I think posts are cleared by an admin before they go out
09:04:31 <Lori S> I also just now saw the "Please review rules here.." link. I shall do that now. :)
09:10:03 <ynpvisitor23> your post just came in my email Lori S
09:13:35 <CraigC> riverside?
09:14:35 <CraigC> seems left of riverside
09:17:21 <ynpvisitor72> Riverside will be big and soon
09:18:07 <ynpvisitor72> Just right of the broenish trees
09:19:03 <Eric (3)> is ground, I can now leave for the park and survive :-D
09:19:19 <CraigC> ha, you take your own, too
09:19:37 <Eric (3)> Don't leave home without it!
09:19:48 <Eric (3)> Food is is required!
09:19:57 <Dave from B™> I never understood the need for coffee
09:20:10 <CraigC> hey Katie
09:20:21 <Katie(10)> G'morning. I just poured my first cup. The day can begin.
09:20:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, warm liquid in the am keeps you regular
09:20:33 <Eric (3)> Apparently your smith genetics are confusing you :-P
09:20:47 <Dave from B™> My lifetime coffee consumption is less than an 1 oz
09:20:50 <Eric (3)> Lion
09:21:10 <Eric (3)> Some people don't understand the need for geysers either...they are just confused :-D
09:21:17 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:21:18 <CraigC> LOL
09:21:50 <Katie(10)> Any good info yet on why the YFT seiso went scribbly near the same time as YNM yesterday?
09:22:14 <CraigC> for the last several years I have to mix decaf grounds with regular or my heart races too much
09:23:15 <Eric (3)> Makes sense Craig...half and half, caffeine is not the best substance for your heart.
09:23:33 <CraigC> I go thru half to full pot of coffee every morning
09:23:58 <Eric (3)> quite the grotto activity
09:24:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, what do you drink it the mornings?
09:24:35 <Eric (3)> How in the world is joe entering Lions :-P He should be in torture session right now!
09:25:19 <Eric (3)> I can do tea in the mornings too, I just love a hot beverage to get my morning going and coffee is super good and easy
09:25:19 <Dave from B™> CraigC, my beverage diet consists of water and wine; occasionally orange juice and beer
09:25:35 <ynpvisitor8> in waiting room
09:25:37 <Dave from B™> Water before 6 pm; wine after 6 pm
09:25:52 <Dave from B™> I didn't say I was normal
09:25:55 <Eric (3)> haha :-D
09:26:21 <ynpvisitor8> joe here 0930 appt.
09:26:26 <Eric (3)> Wine is good for you...especially drank in moderation with a little chocolate
09:26:57 <Dave from B™> Except, no wine during the week for awhile because wine always leads to cheezits chips and chocolate
09:26:57 <Eric (3)> There are also studies pointing to many things in coffee being good for you too
09:27:24 <J. Californium> Hey Katie, I already asked about the YFT seismo anomaly - suggestion is human-caused, but I don't think there's any new info
09:27:32 <Eric (3)> cam down
09:27:57 <Eric (3)> Yes, fishynp did a little analysis, review yesterdays logs
09:28:01 <J. Californium> I'm having Tanzanian Peaberry coffee with caramel macchiato creamer this AM
09:28:04 <Eric (3)> cam up
09:28:15 <J. Californium> Thanks Eric
09:29:26 <CraigC> I use caramel machiatto creamer, also... my fave
09:29:55 <CraigC> I get grounds from WinCo, I favor light roast
09:30:47 <CraigC> we just had an OF
09:31:04 <CraigC>
09:31:05 <Cooper(13)> did we miss OF
09:31:39 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I've been made fun of by many, including my wife. When my alarm goes off, I could be out the door in 20; including a shower. I sometimes literally jump up when the alarm goes off.
09:31:48 <Katie(10)> I found Guatemalan coffee to be wonderful and brought some home and will order more. It's got a wonderful profile - rich, but not acidic. Haven't seen above a medium roast. So, beans that are rich but not acidic and medium roast so no "burnt" profile. Lovely
09:32:35 <Dave from B™> And, I've had less than 5 naps in my lifetime
09:32:37 <Eric (3)> I really like the Trader Joes Columbian
09:32:46 <CraigC> Dave from B™, when I had a buzz cut, same thing, 20 mins to be gone :)
09:33:12 <Eric (3)> I could take a nap every day...afternoon naps should be mandatory IMHO :-D
09:33:20 <Lori S> Shameless local ad... Morning Glory Coffee Obsidian Blend is to die for.
09:33:33 <CraigC> Dave from B™, hmmmm...... an intervention might be necessary
09:33:43 <Lori S> I was talking to aguest. What did I miss?
09:33:49 <Eric (3)> Naps
09:33:54 <Eric (3)> and coffee
09:33:56 <Katie(10)> Coffee talk :)
09:34:10 <CraigC> Lori S, Dave doesn't drink coffee, and doesn;t ever take naps
09:34:20 <Dave from B™> You going to tie me down and force me to drink coffee?
09:34:21 <Lori S> Oh my
09:34:39 <CraigC> yeah, until you fall asleep in the middle of the day
09:34:46 <J. Californium> And I looked at fishynp's seismo analysis - definitely different, probably artificial.
09:34:55 <Lori S> I'm enjoying an iced Obsidian Blend latte at the moment
09:34:57 <Dave from B™> Even dozing off on a 10 pm flight from Hawaii is almost impossible
09:35:14 <J. Californium> Where do you get Morning Glory Coffee Obsidian Blend?
09:35:15 <Eric (3)> Yes, his frequency isolation really shows the dropout
09:35:32 <Lori S> In West Yellowstone or on their website. :)
09:35:40 <Eric (3)> riverside
09:35:48 <Lori S> They jjst sell the beans, not hot beverages here
09:36:11 <CraigC> which coffee shop?
09:36:15 <Eric (3)> With West's probably gold brick to the pound of coffee?
09:36:20 <J. Californium> We've got a place nearby called Vigilante Coffee (the owner's name is Vigilante) - outstanding stuff
09:36:34 <Lori S> He doesn't have a coffee shop anymore becasue he's too busy roasting beans
09:36:52 <CraigC> so where do I go to buy some?
09:37:08 <Eric (3)> It's funny everyone talking about craft coffee :-D Used to be nobody in PDX, we have had craft coffee roasters for 30 years.
09:37:09 <Lori S> Haha Eric. About $12 a lb
09:37:23 <Eric (3)> Meh, thats not bad
09:37:53 <Lori S> Craig, the Marke Place or at his retail store on Dunraven
09:37:56 <Eric (3)> Living in the PNW, you need lots of options for your coffee and beer :-D
09:38:12 <Lori S> And sorry, 12 oz, I think, not a full lb
09:38:25 <Eric (3)> ohh, thats pretty pricey then.
09:38:50 <Eric (3)> It's hard to beat stumptown coffee IMHO
09:38:52 <Lori S> maybe 14? I'm not sure
09:39:01 <Dave from B™> ooooooo. Fresh Copper river Sockeye Salmon arriving on Thursday!
09:39:14 <Eric (3)> They fight hard for their beans and get some of the best in the world.
09:39:19 <Lori S> Micah may have been in that bus BTW
09:39:30 <Eric (3)> Hi Micah
09:39:51 <Lori S> Copper River Sockeye, yum
09:39:58 <J. Californium> Dave from B, check out today
09:40:02 <Lori S> But I prefer Coho, meself
09:40:33 <Lori S> Where to get Stmptown, Eric?
09:40:41 <CraigC> Eric (3), riverside entry
09:40:42 <Lori S> *Stumptown
09:40:52 <Eric (3)>
09:41:05 <Katie(10)> YUM! A local grocery store had sockeye on sale last week and my husband (who will eat water bugs but nothing with fins) was out of town. I blew it. Next time he will be gone for a week I might have to place an order, Dave. :)
09:41:28 <Eric (3)> or if you are in Portland, OR :-D
09:41:42 <Eric (3)> They don't over roast and their beans are killer.
09:41:44 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
09:42:03 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Jimbo
09:42:29 <GO MORNING (4)> mmm i liked the Copper River Salmon, was in Seattle when the fish was flown in on opening sale day
09:42:40 <Dave from B™> Give it a couple weeks for prices to go down
09:42:59 <Lori S> Chris slow roasts as well.
09:42:59 <Katie(10)> Thanks for the tip. :)
09:42:59 <Eric (3)> I like copper river in a cast iron pan on the mouth of the river ;-)
09:43:19 <GO MORNING (4)> hehe yes Dave, some restaurants doubled their entree prices, but others didn't
09:43:40 <Dave from B™> There are 1-2 12-24 hour opening every week. Opening 1 produced fillets selling for 39.99 at retail. This opener will produce $26.99/lb.In 2 weeks, they will be below 20 a pound; maybe 17
09:50:21 <Lori S> Thanks to whomever it ws that helped me get on the listserv. Looks like I now have something else to distract me from work as I read back through all that. :)
09:51:18 <Lori S> Eric, was it Stumptown that was on Jack & Ozzy's World Detour?
09:51:55 <Lori S> *Ozzy & Jack
09:53:51 <Eric (3)> No idea
09:55:34 <Lori S> :-}
09:58:33 <GO MORNING (4)> i still need to go back to Seattle and do a sampler platter with different salmon to taste all the differences - i didnt see that on any of the menus tho
09:59:00 <GO MORNING (4)> maybe you can bring some and have a cookout tasting session at SB Dave
09:59:20 <Lori S> :thumbsup: on the tasting at SB
10:00:33 <Dave from B™> Graham, fresh salmon don't all run at the same time...only possible when sampling frozen salmon
10:00:45 <Dave from B™> Which is still really good
10:01:27 <GO MORNING (4)> arg you are making it too complicated ... like deciding which geyser to go and sit at
10:02:08 <Dave from B™> If anyone wants any fish, I can bring you some to OF on May 29
10:02:39 <Kevin L™ (> Guess it is time to go to work.
10:03:40 <Dave from B™> work? I thought you removed that from your vocabulary 8 years ago?
10:04:19 <Kevin L™ (> Well I should say run the cam
10:04:45 <Dave from B™> Feeling tired today, Kevin?
10:04:46 <GO MORNING (4)> are you ironing Kevin?
10:05:48 <Kevin L™ (> Well since you are all putting the days in when you are going to the park, I put in the computer. As close as I will get.
10:06:15 <CraigC> LOL
10:06:20 <Kevin L™ (> People have called me a tired individual Dave.
10:06:29 <CraigC> I felt like a sheep, so I stopped
10:07:20 <Kevin L™ (> 🐏
10:07:43 <GO MORNING (4)> is that the infinity sign Kevin?
10:08:07 <Kevin L™ (> It may as well be.
10:08:18 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a sheep, Graham
10:08:23 <Kevin L™ (> It is a computer.
10:09:41 <GO MORNING (4)> interesting light on Mammoth cam
10:16:58 <Eric (3)> You packed yet Graham?
10:17:06 <Eric (3)> Got your snow gear and your sun screen?
10:19:56 <Eric (3)> Looks like there could be a few nice days of sunshine next week.
10:20:41 <GO MORNING (4)> not packed ..... thats on the calendar for tonight. i am thinking of taking the heavy thermals but not my winter boots
10:21:04 <GO MORNING (4)> i usually just take lightweight thermals
10:21:26 <Kevin L™ (> That should warm the park up.
10:21:41 <Eric (3)> Seems reasonable...I will only bring lightweight thermals, then layer those.
10:22:00 <Dave from B™> If you two do your job than I shouldn't need just shorts
10:22:02 <GO MORNING (4)> if i get sucked into an overnight at SB it might be colder than last years 18F
10:22:05 <Eric (3)> thermals + pants + rain gear
10:22:22 <GO MORNING (4)> 18F was in Set. likely wont stay out at night given the wetness
10:22:30 <Eric (3)> Might take my sleeping bag for warmth if I stay up at SB too late
10:23:04 <Eric (3)> It will be in the bottom of my bag :-D
10:23:33 <GO MORNING (4)> you are driving Eric or flying?
10:23:43 <Eric (3)> Yep, it's hard to stay out late at night when wet/snow
10:23:55 <Eric (3)> Driving this time, so I can take lots of fun stuff :-D
10:23:56 <GO MORNING (4)> i can deal with rain or darkness bt not both
10:24:06 <GO MORNING (4)> oh yeah, throw it all in
10:24:13 <Eric (3)> I will have my camp stove with me for hot chocolate :-D
10:24:19 <Eric (3)> or coffee/chocolate
10:24:25 <GO MORNING (4)> mine has to fit in one case and carry on backpack
10:24:28 <CraigC> or ramen
10:24:40 <Eric (3)> Yes and you can't take stuff like stove fuel.
10:24:48 <GO MORNING (4)> nice of you toprovide drinks for us at SB Eric
10:25:03 <Eric (3)> You should get a rental unit in Bozeman for your gear Graham :-D
10:25:08 <Dave from B™> I can just see Eric flying with his gear this trip. Yes, I'd like to pay for 8 bags, please
10:25:10 <CraigC> dont forget to take TP
10:25:29 <Eric (3)> Nah, I will only have 2 bags, main clothes bag and backpack
10:25:42 <Dave from B™> If you guys would fly into Billings, I could store your stuff
10:25:49 <Eric (3)> Plus all the food and biking stuff
10:26:08 <Eric (3)> haha....I might as well drive at that point.
10:26:08 <CraigC> Eric (3), you're taking a bike?
10:26:25 <Eric (3)> Yep...I want to be able to get down basin quick if needed
10:26:33 <CraigC> :(
10:26:38 <Kevin L™ (> Seafoods of the World and Yellowstone Park Micro Storage...
10:26:39 <Eric (3)> They just get thrown on a rack on the back of the car.
10:26:47 <Lori S> Who needs TP. Dave recommends Depends. :p
10:26:58 <Eric (3)> :-D
10:27:20 <CraigC> I had a blast the time I went alone and had my fat bike
10:27:22 <GO MORNING (4)> i just use one case and do laundry after week 1 of 2
10:27:27 <Eric (3)> Alright...lots of work to do before I leave, bye for now .
10:27:40 <Kevin L™ (> Extra large size
10:28:14 <Lori S> Bye Eric. Hope to see you at SB!
10:28:30 <Dave from B™> It is only 45 minutes longer to YNP if you fly into Billings
10:30:17 <GO MORNING (4)> my case is as big as you are allowed to take. carry-on stretches the limit but so far they have not forced it into the space ploice box
10:31:33 <GO MORNING (4)> United made me mad when boarding as premium passenger and they made me squeeze my carry-on in the sizer ...... had to do up the expansion zipper to fit. of course i opened it back up on the jetway
10:31:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:33:55 <ynpvisitor401> what is steaming left of lion?
10:34:26 <Dave from B™> Little Cub
10:35:38 <Dave from B™> Lori, are you still here?
10:35:46 <Lori S> Yes
10:36:05 <Lori S> Physically, anyway :p
10:36:54 <Dave from B™> what do you think of Cafe Madriz?
10:37:17 <Lori S> OMG, I STILL haven't gotten there. It's supposed to be great.
10:37:35 <Lori S> Their hours never seem to match up with when I can go.
10:37:38 <Dave from B™> We just picked them up as a customer.
10:38:10 <Lori S> Oh, cool. I will be sure to recommend it to more people then, :)
10:38:35 <Kevin L™ (> Just got the forecast here. Only going to be 66° here tomorrow
10:39:02 <Dave from B™> ouch, Kevin. Better turn up the heat
10:39:19 <Lori S> Shorts wetaher!
10:39:41 <Lori S> *weather
10:39:58 <Kevin L™ (> Usually it is in the 90's.
10:40:41 <Lori S> ..hide in the shade and drink iced tea weather
10:42:55 <LindaG> Kevin L™ (💻), Sounds like you'll be drinking hot tea tomorrow
10:43:36 <Kevin L™ (> I think I have some hot cider spices. That would be fun.
10:43:49 <Dave from B™> I would be dancing in the streets for 66 degrees. Highest high in next 7 is 62
10:44:59 <Kevin L™ (> We are counting our blessings Dave. Already been into triple digits this year.
10:52:02 <LindaG> It was 88 here yesterday and now not quite 70, its crazy!

10:58:28 <Lori S> Lost the chat there for a minute.
10:58:32 <LindaG> Kevin L™ (💻), gotta get them to alphabetized presets
10:58:53 <Kevin L™ (> That would work
10:59:19 <LindaG> I've had the same problem

11:15:19 <LindaG> Yay

11:16:45 <Kat> Sat by Steamboat for 2 days, worth every minute!
11:16:47 <LindaG> Kat, congrats on steamboat!
11:17:16 <Dave from B™> Kat, who did you meet?
11:18:49 <Kat> Ben, H.Koenig and his wife, Tom, not sure of all
11:19:08 <Kat> It was interesting.
11:19:31 <LindaG> Kat, I saw your video
11:20:04 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have a zoom to LS?
11:20:06 <Kat> I cried! I admit it! :lol:
11:20:27 <Cooper(13)> Kat, was it your first?
11:20:35 <Kat> More on my real camera, will upload later
11:21:27 <Kat> Yes, first Steamboat, weather, snow, sleet, hail,rain, cold!
11:21:48 <Cooper(13)> nice, it makes sense why you cried
11:23:15 <Dave from B™> Kat, I thought I would cry but I leaned against the front rail the whole time and stared with my jaw open saying wow over and over. It was fun watching roicks flying
11:23:22 <Kat> Wshing and drying all my steamboat clothes this morning!
11:24:20 <Kat> Dave from B™, got hit several times, and according to some the sound was louder than most rruptions!
11:25:36 <Katie(10)> When I was there for it, I was camping - in my Jeep. I ended up hanging things from the ceiling of the Jeep to dry.
11:26:35 <Kat> Bbl, I'll be in basin tomorrow. Connection not good there :(
11:28:11 <Kat> Katie, im camping in my Pathfinder, everthing woild have been wet if i had done that!

11:29:38 <Dave from B™> dang missed it
11:30:13 <lc> waited for someone to call it
11:30:16 <Dave from B™> Hi, lc
11:30:31 <lc> hey Dave
11:30:34 <ynpvisitor999®> well, in that case I'm 90% sure Lion has ended its series
11:31:07 <LindaG> Where there's a minor there's a major waiting to happen
11:31:21 <lc> 1128 here but I am delayed.
11:33:27 <LindaG> Does it need to be entered?
11:33:49 <lc> I will
11:33:58 <LindaG> Ok
11:34:17 <LindaG> I didnt see it ☹
11:39:38 <Eric (3)> In case any of you are in the basin over the next week and see this guy, either run or come up and say hi :-)
11:40:24 <Eric (3)> I might look a little different in full rain gear, but hopefully it will make introductions easier :-D
11:40:47 <CraigC> I don't have room to bring a ladder
11:41:55 <CraigC> marmot cave
11:41:58 <Eric (3)>
11:42:26 <CraigC> Eric (3), think that will hold 300lbs?
11:43:40 <Eric (3)>
11:44:09 <Eric (3)> How can we expect children to learn how to read, if they can't even fit inside the building!
11:44:36 <CraigC> LMAO
11:45:23 <Eric (3)> I can just see you and your mini ladder :-D

11:50:31 <CraigC> speaking of, I think OT is going
11:51:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger's Hole must've been a fun one yesterday
11:55:00 <CraigC> can we zoom to Old tardy
11:59:30 <Jeff in CT> Hi everyone!
11:59:46 <CraigC> hey Jeff
12:00:03 <Betty> hi Jeff
12:01:15 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Jeff
12:01:24 <Jeff in CT> Has there been any update on the YFT seismo weirdness from yesterday?
12:03:08 <ynpvisitor999®> probably some technical equipment near the seismo, as the noise has an equal amplitude throughout much of the duration
12:03:15 <J. Californium> Yeah, scroll up today or look at later conversation yesterday.
12:05:27 <Jeff in CT> Thanks J.Cf
12:19:01 <GO MORNING (4)> yeah another NG, glad we are seeing some for the SB crowd to ignore
12:19:11 <GO MORNING (4)> wish there were some extended fill notes
12:32:07 <CraigC2> Bulger
12:37:41 <Art> Huge crowd

12:38:09 <Betty> hi Art
12:38:13 <CraigC> LMAO
12:38:27 <Art> We need a face palm emoji
12:38:30 <CraigC> join my cult and all the answers will be revealed
12:40:04 <Art> Keep refreshing the weather forecast for the next 10 days...
12:40:10 <Art> Wish-casting better weather
12:40:39 <Art> Might be the first time I've ever seen Slush Lake ;)
12:41:28 <CraigC> the clouds on the mtn out my back door look like it might turn to snow here in No Utah
12:42:13 <Art> We had snow here in NH last week and it was 80 yesterday now it's cold and WINDY
12:42:15 <Cooper(13)> Well where I live in Colorado, we got 14 inches of snow overnight, and I live in Colorado springs!
12:42:48 <CraigC> OF
12:42:51 <Kevin L™ (> Only 72° here now.
12:42:57 <Eric (3)> You packed Art?
12:43:08 <CraigC> freeze
12:43:14 <Eric (3)> I am heading to REI for a pickup of a few last items :-D
12:43:19 <Betty> new Kevin L™ (💻)?
12:43:29 <Eric (3)> knee high gaiters are one of those things :-P
12:43:39 <Eric (3)> cam down
12:44:32 <Kevin L™ (> Gazers are putting the days until they get there. Computer is as close as I will get this year so I used that.
12:46:11 <Art> Eric (3), Started the process, luggage is out, gear is sorted, winter gear is back out and washed...
12:46:46 <Art> No camping this trip so that makes things a lot easier
12:46:55 <Art> Will also make SB harder at the same time though
12:47:04 <CraigC> hmmmm, only thing I have packed is a couple of pair of binocs, because I forgot them last week
12:47:20 <Art> Current interval is gonna be a tough one
12:47:38 <Art> Is it 5 days or is it gonna go to 7... or is it going to be a geyser and mess with us..
12:48:28 <CraigC> I plan to go visit people at SB, but no plans to stay long, maybe another trip if I can go alone
12:49:41 <ynpvisitor53> Cooper(13), 14 in. That's crazy
12:50:15 <CraigC> sasquatch
12:50:30 <CraigC> hey Linda
12:50:47 <Cooper(13)> No joke, they closed my school today, at tommarow its supposed to be 68
12:50:53 <LindaG> Hi Craig, hi sasquatch
12:50:58 <CraigC> :)
12:52:17 <LindaG> Today is comfortabl yesterday i roasted
12:58:44 <ynpvisitor999®> When the cam was on the Myriads, I think I saw some eruption-like steam coming from Basin Spring (between the trees left of Sasquatch I think)
13:08:19 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have the cam on the Myriads please?
13:22:45 <LindaG> Snow
13:23:33 <LindaG> Or one of those low flying birds Joe mentioned yesterday
13:24:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Looks like YNM is out of service at the moment. No new data since 1257
13:28:39 <ynpvisitor999®> and YNM is back
13:29:02 <LindaG> What's castle doing
13:29:13 <ynpvisitor999®> c'mon Castle... You can't be doing these brief preplays forever
13:29:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
13:29:23 <LindaG> Lots of steam blowing g away
13:34:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
13:35:07 <GO MORNING (4)> packing has commenced here ... laundry on with a few essentials
13:35:22 <GO MORNING (4)> yes, the winter weight thermas are ready
13:35:57 <GO MORNING (4)> I am hping for an LGB LGB cup race
13:36:31 <GO MORNING (4)> i guess we lost Art, that was wasted
13:36:53 <Dave from B™> cup race?
13:37:08 <Dave from B™> hockey...gotcha
13:37:11 <GO MORNING (4)> did Castle minor, thats what it could be doing for hours
13:37:16 <Kevin L™ (> Isn't LGB a model train?
13:37:26 <GO MORNING (4)> how quick you forgot Dave
13:37:44 <Dave from B™> Graham, my first stop on the 29th will most likely be Fountain if the time makes sense
13:37:51 <GO MORNING (4)> could be Art vs. Joe .......
13:37:55 <Dave from B™> My team has been golfing for a month now:)
13:38:38 <GO MORNING (4)> good idea Dave, I hpe there is a confirmed Morning sighting soon. Micah isnt sure if it was Morning yesterday morning
13:41:13 <Dave from B™> I like the long durations and intervals from Fountain
13:41:51 <GO MORNING (4)> we just need Morning's Thief to play dead
13:42:28 <Dave from B™> Well, time to go sweat. I will be back in less than 2
13:47:24 <GO MORNING (4)> Kevin has the task of etering geyser times for CC?
13:58:18 <GO MORNING (4)> Turban time from CC and Kevin....I guess CC didnt see SB or we would have heard?
14:10:47 <Casey> Grand
14:17:04 <Eric (3)> just in time!
14:18:16 <Eric (3)> 2nd?
14:18:28 <Eric (3)> or just 8m push?
14:19:16 <GO MORNING (4)> if you are asking, I am guessing not a pause
14:19:42 <J. Californium> tough call from here. Looked like a pause, but not much of an initial second burst so :thumbsdown:
14:20:22 <GO MORNING (4)> W gate is empty....quick lets go
14:21:09 <GO MORNING (4)> of
14:22:56 <Eric (3)> I assume CC will tell Kevin :-D
14:23:24 <Eric (3)> Just picked up some new sun gloves and gaiters
14:23:57 <ynpvisitor999®> what a mess of droplets
14:25:00 <ynpvisitor999®> ugh. Am not liking this Castle interval so far
14:25:27 <GO MORNING (4)> it probably minored earlier
14:25:33 <ynpvisitor999®> it's almost as if it's stuck in near-perpetual occasional jetting
14:26:40 <GO MORNING (4)> are we sure 0010 was a major?
14:26:50 <GO MORNING (4)> thats what it can do after a minor
14:27:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have a look
14:29:05 <GO MORNING (4)> might have had 2 minors in a row?
14:30:45 <Casey> I agree the current activity seems to indicate a minor eruption.
14:41:47 <ynpvisitor999®> This presumed Castle eruption is a tough one to find. In my opinion, Castle likely went @ 0011 and was likely a major
14:42:57 <Casey> Interesting
14:45:06 <ynpvisitor999®> G1C | 11m+
14:45:49 <GO MORNING (4)> thanks Jarno. looks like there might have been a really short interval to a minor
14:47:16 <ynpvisitor999®> I may actually be able to find it earlier, as 16h16m is, as of recent, a long interval for after a minor-major pair
14:53:57 <CraigC> what is a spasmodic eruption?
14:59:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle 2251 ie, likely major but unable to see due to poor visibility and cam outages
15:01:12 <ynpvisitor999®> we got E times for Castle, just as I entered the wc time
15:01:30 <ynpvisitor999®> double minor, of which one is 2249 E
15:01:36 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
15:02:29 <ynpvisitor999®> That solves that then I guess
15:05:59 <ynpvisitor999®> NG 1502 ie
15:11:07 <CraigC> crap, missed it
15:11:19 <CraigC> oh, it's still going
15:11:31 <CraigC> wow
15:12:37 <ynpvisitor94> was NG an intermediate, missed it
15:12:43 <Cooper> was 1502 NG a minor, intermediate, or major
15:12:57 <ynpvisitor94> hehe same question
15:13:14 <ynpvisitor94> you can see it huffing steam
15:13:28 <ynpvisitor94> or is that Goggles Spring?
15:13:35 <Cooper> I wasnt on until just now; so I dont know?
15:13:38 <ynpvisitor94> no, both are huffing
15:13:38 <ynpvisitor999®> that'd be GS rather than NG, as NG is more to the right
15:13:42 <CraigC> I think both are steaming
15:14:10 <ynpvisitor94> GS right behind the treetops
15:14:11 <ynpvisitor999®> GS is at the top of the trees next to the tall, nearly dead, tree
15:14:42 <ynpvisitor94> would like to see the replay on it, what was the duration?
15:14:57 <ynpvisitor999®> it's an in-basin entry, cam was down-basin at the time
15:15:27 <CraigC> yeah, not sure it was still in eruption when I came back here, or just thick steam, I'll have to wait for tomorrow's GOSA
15:16:08 <ynpvisitor94> more than a minor probably
15:16:46 <ynpvisitor94> Catle times make sense now
15:17:16 <ynpvisitor999®> NG, and more notably GS, steamed a lot when the cam panned to Lion. Likely an intermediate and maybe even a major
15:17:36 <ynpvisitor94> LC
15:17:44 <Cooper> I would love for it to be a major
15:18:27 <ynpvisitor94> i hope we will get some eyes on whats going on with extended fills
15:19:08 <ynpvisitor94> the wet weather is inhibiting observations
15:20:55 <CraigC> Grove is huffing
15:21:21 <Cooper> Grove is in the back right of the cam right now correct?
15:21:37 <CraigC> yeah, back behind the boardwalk in the trees
15:22:28 <CraigC> bulger
15:22:49 <Cooper> GO BULGERS HOME
15:24:04 <ynpvisitor94> or HOLE?
15:25:14 <Cooper> Oops, didnt see my mistake until now
15:26:32 <GO GOGGLE (4)> will be a while befpre NG recovers now
15:27:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside in window
15:31:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Dreadful weather
15:31:09 <Dave from B™> What did you guys do?
15:32:00 <Dave from B™> Yep, Craig's got it right
15:32:08 <CraigC> I packed shorts....
15:32:57 <Dave from B™> I can't do it....bites tongue...thinks better of that one
15:33:01 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching droplets
15:34:39 <GO GOGGLE (4)> where is this Graham person you speak of?
15:35:22 <CraigC> Dave from B™, LMAO, as soon as I posted it, I knew it sounded bad
15:36:36 <Joe> Riverside
15:36:56 <Dave from B™> hold on one minute..there's only 1 reason I could think of wanting shorts
15:37:02 <CraigC> where, right of that one raindrop?
15:37:49 <Joe> Look hard you will see :)
15:38:02 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I hope the only reason you thought of was that going in underwear would not be appropriate.
15:38:12 <Dave from B™> here ya go
15:38:14 <Dave from B™>
15:40:00 <Kevin L™ (> If you think this is bad, try this:
15:40:14 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i wonder if anyone is car gazing looking for Ftn?
15:40:41 <GO GOGGLE (4)> now where are all the chargers I need .......?
15:40:52 <Dave from B™> Graham, pm me please to exchange cell numbers
15:40:54 <CraigC> San Diego?
15:40:58 <Eric (3)> haha...I have my chargers and batteries all packed :-D
15:41:00 <GO GOGGLE (4)> and how many flashlights should I take?
15:41:15 <Eric (3)> I have 3 headlamps and 2 flashlights.
15:41:43 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i think i will have 1 headlamp and 3 flashlights
15:41:44 <Eric (3)> No idea why I have so many headlamps, but they are small...maybe a nice 360 lighting system
15:42:04 <Dave from B™> That's easy...for people who don't bring their own:)
15:42:08 <Eric (3)> blind everyone around me :-P
15:42:27 <GO GOGGLE (4)> as long as they are dim headlamps
15:42:49 <Eric (3)> Nope, super bright ones...I hate holding a light
15:43:04 <GO GOGGLE (4)> then please stay away from me
15:43:16 <GO GOGGLE (4)> unless they all point in the same direction
15:43:28 <Eric (3)> all pointing toward you?
15:43:35 <CraigC> LOL
15:43:48 <Dave from B™> Graham, Eric is going to be the guy standing across from you at Daisy in the middle of the night
15:43:49 <GO GOGGLE (4)> my handheld will win that battle
15:44:17 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i have two Suns
15:44:37 <Eric (3)> 3 suns....ha ha ha in my best sesame street voice
15:44:46 <Kevin L™ (> Dave will have this:
15:45:02 <Dave from B™> I do have a gas lattern
15:45:40 <Eric (3)> My big flashlight only uses 4 18650 about yours Graham?
15:45:48 <GO GOGGLE (4)> alweays fun when peeps come outto Ftn to see what is going on . "I saw all the bright lights and wanted to see whats happening"?
15:45:49 <Eric (3)> They make them with 8 yet?
15:46:14 <Eric (3)> I loved our fountain raid last year, with tara, heinrich and all the other lights :-D
15:46:24 <Eric (3)> Hope we can catch a morning this year
15:46:55 <Eric (3)> That was a LOT of candlepower
15:48:17 <GO GOGGLE (4)> you can buy extension tubes that extend the life of them.
15:48:36 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i just have two of the flashlights with 4 batteries a piece
15:49:15 <Eric (3)> OF
15:49:19 <GO GOGGLE (4)> in 2013 we had LE coming out to see why so many cars were there and what all the lights were doing
15:49:21 <GO GOGGLE (4)> of
15:49:29 <Eric (3)> Get this one!
15:49:38 <Eric (3)> 32000 candlepower :-P
15:50:04 <Eric (3)> 8 CREE XHP70 2nd Generation LEDs...that is insane!
15:51:01 <Eric (3)> Wow...they even make a bigger one
15:51:07 <Eric (3)> 53000 candlepower!
15:51:12 <Eric (3)> This is stupid huge!
15:51:22 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i have the Fenix one like it
15:51:35 <Eric (3)> It has it's own cooling fan :-P
15:52:08 <GO GOGGLE (4)> not quite as bright, but then its a tradeoff between duration and brightness too ... and how hot you want your hands to get
15:52:57 <Dave from B™> It's fun to sit in the dark, too!:)
15:53:01 <Eric (3)> You need cooling fans Graham! :-P
15:53:51 <Eric (3)> haha....totally agree Dave
15:54:02 <Eric (3)> I gave up on the flashlight size thing a long time ago
15:54:04 <GO GOGGLE (4)> thats true oif its full moon Dave .. but new moon coming up
15:54:16 <CraigC> do you all cuddle?
15:54:23 <Eric (3)> I just find it kinda ridiculous the size they are making now.
15:54:43 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i like to go down to Giant on a clear new moon night and look up at the milky way
15:54:47 <Dave from B™> Really, Craig?:D
15:55:04 <Dave from B™> I like Grand in the dark
15:55:10 <CraigC> Dave from B™, it matters whether I want to go or not.... if there is no cuddling, pass
15:56:27 <Kevin L™ (> Do you know what the definition of flashlight is?
15:57:29 <GO GOGGLE (4)> this is a family channel :)
15:57:48 <CraigC> LOL
15:57:55 <Kevin L™ (> It is a compartment that you store dead batteries in.
15:58:37 <CraigC> no kidding.... had to dig out a rotten battery from a Mag Light yesterday
16:02:56 <CraigC> Eric (3), did you read the "Tips about this flashlight" on the one you linked at Amazon.... the translation, LOL
16:07:31 <GO GOGGLE (4)> did we miss Daisy?
16:07:45 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i know the view has been so bad
16:09:05 <Joe> Daisy probably erupted during OF
16:09:51 <Joe> We are at 2h 40 min now
16:10:27 <GO GOGGLE (4)> yeah, during OF would make sense
16:10:36 <GO GOGGLE (4)> rain doesnt seem to have slowed it down recently
16:11:19 <GO GOGGLE (4)> looks like only COmet steam on the hill
16:13:49 <Joe> NPS must have a Daisy time, they have a new prediction
16:14:43 <GO GOGGLE (4)> oh good
16:15:09 <GO GOGGLE (4)> also lines up with it being during the last OF
16:15:22 <Joe> yep
16:15:34 <CraigC> this may have been aurum;
16:15:58 <Cooper> Looks like it is
16:16:24 <CraigC> not definitive enough to enter, though
16:16:45 <GO GOGGLE (4)> could go in with a ?
16:20:55 <Joe> Graham, may I send you a email with a corrected ref image
16:21:39 <Joe> for your review
16:22:08 <GO GOGGLE (4)> sure
16:22:50 <Joe> On the way
16:24:06 <Joe> LC
16:31:56 <Joe> Castle Ie
16:41:31 <LindaG> CraigC, I saw aurum at 10:53
16:42:11 <CraigC> LindaG, yeah, that is why I scrolled to see if it went around 5 hours later
16:43:51 <GO GOGGLE (4)> map looks good Joe, sorry for the delay
16:48:10 <Joe> thanks for all of your help Graham
16:49:03 <GO GOGGLE (4)> yw, thanks for doing it to help everyone
16:50:19 <GO GOGGLE (4)> Castle Major
16:51:54 <Joe> It has been fun, I had become fairly good at GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), and this has got me back to using it again
16:53:52 <Joe> I am working on a panorama image, but I wanted to get most of it right before I did that
16:55:59 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I have to laugh....I know your g/f's name is not Jenny but every time that song comes on I think about that conversation.
16:56:40 <CraigC> huh? what song
16:57:00 <Dave from B™> 867-5309
16:57:29 <Dave from B™> When I first asked your what your g'f's name was; you told me Jenny
16:57:52 <CraigC> I can;t remember that LOL
16:58:15 <Kevin L™ (> We need to get that wiper going.
16:58:27 <Dave from B™> Boy, I must have made a good first impression
16:58:36 <GO GOGGLE (4)> that was an office number where i worked .... they had to disconnect it
16:59:28 <CraigC> Dave from B™, or I am old
16:59:44 <LindaG> A wet sasquatcg
17:00:06 <Dave from B™> I would NEVER call you old so close to your birthday. It's plain rude:)
17:00:07 <LindaG> *sasquatch
17:00:25 <ynpvisitor7> wow, no cam
17:00:33 <ynpvisitor7> so sad it has a wiper and yet...this.
17:00:38 <Dave from B™> We have a cam
17:00:38 <GO GOGGLE (4)> are we all ready to sing for Craig?
17:00:40 <Kevin L™ (> No, SNOW cam.
17:01:08 <LindaG> Looks like it
17:01:13 <GO GOGGLE (4)> or do that on the SB platform?
17:01:14 <CraigC> Dave from B™, was that conversation at SB or on here?
17:02:36 <Cooper> oh happy birthday Craig
17:02:49 <CraigC> thanks
17:03:38 <CraigC> just waiting for "Jenny" to pick up some take-out Chinese food, and watch Justified
17:04:16 <CraigC> planes crash because of views like this
17:06:50 <LindaG> Winter is going to be rough
17:08:30 <GO GOGGLE (4)> need a heater and active wiper
17:09:18 <Kevin L™ (> I was in the co pilot's seat of the Governor's plane from Vegas to Cartoon City in weather like this. 600 mph and you couldn't see the nose of the plane. A Pampers flight for sure!
17:10:02 <LindaG> 😳
17:11:45 <CraigC> I get this feeling that Kevin used to be like a real-life Mission Impossible dude
17:13:29 <Kevin L™ (> I did burn up a few tape recordings...
17:15:28 <CraigC> your Amerca's Got Talent tryouts?
17:16:51 <Kevin L™ (> I guess I should say it wasn't on purpose, it just happened that way.
17:16:58 <Cooper> okay, did Kevin really try out for Americas Got Talent
17:17:23 <Kevin L™ (> No.
17:17:27 <CraigC> I've said too much, sorry
17:17:32 <Cooper> okay good
17:19:37 <GO GOGGLE (4)> of
17:23:27 <ynpvisitor92> Look at that blob on radar heading back to the park
17:24:39 <GO GOGGLE (4)> no, all look away
17:25:07 <Dave from B™> CraigC, the conversation was on here. Maybe, it was before you had your cup of coffee
17:25:33 <Dave from B™> Another nice Fountain duration and interval
17:25:37 <CraigC> LOL
17:27:39 <Dave from B™> Time to help Taylor finish up in the market. CraigC, Broccoli Chicken for me please. Have a great evening everyone!
17:28:28 <Kevin L™ (> Night Dave
17:28:51 <CraigC> cya Dave
17:29:22 <GO GOGGLE (4)> Craig is bring Broccoli Chicken to SB?
17:31:35 <CraigC> it will be about 5 days old.....
17:32:12 <Kevin L™ (> Still be better than most food places in the park.
17:32:20 <CraigC> ;)
17:32:41 <Kevin L™ (> Fresher too.
17:33:41 <CraigC> bulger
17:35:09 <CraigC> daisy?
17:35:16 <CraigC> nope
17:41:46 <Eric (3)> Interesting Cistern note...still quiet
17:42:51 <GO GOGGLE (4)> we are at the 1d marl...thats ok
18:24:21 <Eric (3)> Oh right...was thinking it went Sunday...24h seems reasonable to be drained.
18:25:11 <Kevin L™ (> Ready to go sit in the rain with Dave?
18:27:11 <Eric (3)> Yep...Rain, Snow, Sun :-D
18:27:25 <Eric (3)> But is dave ready to sit with me :-P
18:27:39 <Kevin L™ (> Shouldn't be mosquitoes.
18:27:50 <Eric (3)> I am prepared for that!
18:28:09 <LindaG> Watch out for those ticks. Just pulled one off me today.
18:28:23 <Kevin L™ (> I hate ticks.
18:28:31 <Eric (3)> Yep, my gear is all tick/mosquito repellent sprayed
18:28:44 <Eric (3)> Even my boots are coated
18:28:48 <GO GOGGLE (4)> Dave doesnt need to see it again, he has seen it this yuear ... unlike Eric, Craig and I
18:28:53 <LindaG> 👍
18:29:31 <Eric (3)> How many times has dave been to the park this year?
18:29:44 <GO GOGGLE (4)> if it stays below freezing there wont bee many mosquitos
18:29:57 <GO GOGGLE (4)> same number of times i have, once
18:30:00 <Kevin L™ (> When I was with the 1st Cav in Texas we used to use flea collars on our boots to keep ticks and chiggers off. Had to be careful though. If they touched you skin it would raise an ugly blister.
18:30:14 <Eric (3)> and he has seen SB he is like a lucky charm now!
18:30:28 <GO GOGGLE (4)> SB erupted once while i was in the park too but i didnt see it
18:30:34 <Kevin L™ (> I think he only went the one time.
18:30:39 <Eric (3)> So are you unlucky?
18:30:48 <GO GOGGLE (4)> very
18:30:54 <Eric (3)> Are you the new Dave?
18:30:57 <GO GOGGLE (4)> didnt Dave go one other time too?
18:30:59 <Eric (3)> nooooo
18:31:05 <Kevin L™ (> I think Becca is the new Dave.
18:31:23 <GO GOGGLE (4)> sory Eric, you will be there all the time with the unlucky charm
18:31:25 <Eric (3)> He gave his bad mojo to his that is just mean
18:31:36 <GO GOGGLE (4)> except Friday/Sat morning
18:31:37 <Eric (3)> I know....that is what scares me Graham :-D
18:31:54 <GO GOGGLE (4)> is Becca going ?
18:32:10 <Kevin L™ (> I think she is.
18:32:23 <Eric (3)> ohh, didn't know that. Will be great to see her :-D
18:32:34 <Eric (3)> I double hope she gets it
18:33:15 <Eric (3)> I am bringing a total geyser noob with me. He is going willingly to sit at geysers for dayz on end
18:33:30 <Eric (3)> Not sure he realizes the pain he signed up for :-D
18:33:37 <Kevin L™ (> :)
18:33:48 <Eric (3)> I tried to warn him
18:33:51 <GO GOGGLE (4)> i had my friend Don with me in Sept, he saw SB and Morning
18:34:00 <Eric (3)> Oh awesome!
18:34:01 <Kevin L™ (> He will get hooked or never want to see the place again.
18:34:13 <Eric (3)> I agree with you Kevin
18:34:20 <GO GOGGLE (4)> he didnt have to stay overnight at SB either, he just showed up in the morning and waited an hour for it
18:34:42 <Eric (3)> Nice...that is a great way to see it
18:34:51 <GO GOGGLE (4)> Don had his own car so he could sleep
18:34:54 <LindaG> Now that's my kind of Sb sighting
18:35:14 <GO GOGGLE (4)> he didnt see Giant tho, he went wildlife spotting
18:35:17 <Eric (3)> ahh, we are sharing a car, so I guess I will be left at SB if he wants to leave.
18:35:34 <Eric (3)> or try to catch a ride back with someone else.
18:35:53 <Eric (3)> bringing my stove, sleeping bag and emergency shelter :-D
18:36:29 <LindaG> Are you allowed to bring all that to steamboat?
18:36:55 <Eric (3)> If LE wonders by and gives me grief I will ask them for a lift back to the UGB
18:37:08 <LindaG> Lol
18:37:11 <Eric (3)>'s all emergency supplies
18:37:19 <Eric (3)> Only if I get stuck there
18:37:57 <LindaG> Sown
18:38:01 <Eric (3)> sleeping on the BW is against the rules
18:38:02 <LindaG> Down
18:38:09 <ynpvisitor2> LE isn't gonna dig through your bag ;)
18:38:44 <Eric (3)> Nope and my stuff fits in my bag with all my other gear.
18:39:38 <ynpvisitor2> The boardwalk area around Steamboat and most of Norris isn't exatly the same fragile thermal area as other basins either
18:39:46 <Eric (3)> I believe technically sleeping any place in yellowstone not designated for sleeping is against the rules.
18:39:53 <ynpvisitor2> Like most of the loops are just dirt
18:40:48 <GO GOGGLE (4)> there are a bunch of very fragile areas, but i agree that parts of back basin are ground trails, not BW
18:41:09 <ynpvisitor2> Sorry meant back basin
18:41:13 <ynpvisitor109> Eric, joe here Graham looked the latest img I sent you he said it is good
18:41:48 <ynpvisitor2> Just in the sense of sitting on the trail and eating a snack isn't gonna damage back basin ;)
18:46:34 <GO GOGGLE (4)> the old back basin trail that used to cut across by Bastille looks like a scary run right now
18:52:47 <ynpvisitor2> Wonder if Dunraven will open in time with this weather
18:56:02 <ynpvisitor2> Still listed as May 24th
19:50:19 <Kevin L™ (> Grand ie
20:01:45 <ynpvisitor73> I wonder where HK is?
20:02:03 <ynpvisitor73> Not like him to miss Grand
20:05:36 <Kevin L™ (> He may have been there. Posting may be an issue.
20:17:15 <ynpvisitor66> Yay back up
20:20:46 <LindaG> Spoke too soon
20:24:36 <Kevin L™ (> back again
20:26:37 <LindaG> And so is OF 😉
21:35:22 <Joe> Is there a cam op??
21:36:10 <Kevin L™ (> If you want it take it. I was about to park it.
21:36:54 <Joe> no I was just wondering
21:37:54 <Kevin L™ (> Since Castle was late I am just going to the Grand to BH an hope BH does an early show.
21:38:17 <Joe> ok great
21:44:35 <Joe> Has the cam been up and down much for you??
21:45:45 <Kevin L™ (> Yes. I finally just used the viewer since it was easier to get it back up once it cut me off. Not long outages but a bunch of them.
21:48:14 <Joe> Thanks, that is what it looked like on my recorded files, I just wanted to hear about it before making a time of outage report
21:53:11 <Kevin L™ (> Kind of a bummer where clouds block the moon when it is bright.
21:56:02 <Joe> Riverside
21:58:08 <Joe> Yes makes a tough viewing night
22:00:45 <Kevin L™ (> This new cam will wear you out quickly anyway.
22:18:56 <ynpvisitor66> How does the real-time camera have no lights?
22:19:55 <Joe> Cam is moved just above lights
