04:56:55 <GO MORNING (1)> you have a few hours before your girlfriend gets up :)
04:57:31 <GO MORNING (1)> looks wet at West Gate
04:58:23 <CraigC> they agreed to be up at 6
04:59:09 <GO MORNING (1)> good luck with that :) Did you go in yesterday?
04:59:38 <CraigC> yeah, we caught OF, GRand and Castle
05:01:30 <CraigC> hey Joe, nice catches overnight
05:01:46 <GO MORNING (1)> oh nice, Grand and Castle loked good on the cam
05:05:05 <GO MORNING (1)> whats todays plan, bear hunting?
05:05:35 <CraigC> yeah, Mammoth, then Tower, and maybe Lamar
05:05:36 <Joe> Hi Graham and Craig, you could see nothing untio ~0430
05:07:51 <GO MORNING (1)> Washburn might open today too
05:08:33 <GO MORNING (1)> and Firehole Lake Drive which will make Maureen very happy
05:13:36 <CraigC> Pink Cone is fun
05:14:34 <GO MORNING (1)> hope the rain clears for you. radar doesnt look bad but its just slowly spinning centered on the park
05:14:58 <CraigC> yeah, hope so
05:15:03 <GO MORNING (1)> i guess the center moved east, so maybe some new bands will come in
05:15:32 <GO MORNING (1)> its your job to make the sun come out for me tomorrow ... just saying
05:17:38 <CraigC> shows rain picking up, and rain for the next few day :(
05:17:46 <CraigC> days
05:19:05 <GO MORNING (1)> you need to do better :)
05:19:26 <GO MORNING (1)> I blame it on Dave
05:19:39 <CraigC> I wore shorts most of the day yesterday... what else can I do
05:20:29 <CraigC> GO MORNING (1), what time will you be in the park tomorrow
05:20:48 <GO MORNING (1)> maybe Eric is to blame bringing PNW weather with him
05:21:19 <GO MORNING (1)> probably get to OF around 4
05:21:41 <GO MORNING (1)> plan to checkin and think about a visit to Norris. no reports from there recently
05:22:23 <CraigC> you fly to Bozeman, then drive to West?
05:25:07 <GO MORNING (1)> yes, with a stop for supplies
05:25:24 <GO MORNING (1)> its a beautiful drive from BZN
05:26:20 <CraigC> there was a wolf sighting last evening along the Madison about a mile or so before the bridge
05:26:30 <CraigC> we just missed it
05:26:49 <GO MORNING (1)> if you ever want a day-drive, the route out N entrance to Livingston and then over to BZN and down to West is very pretty
05:27:12 <GO MORNING (1)> oh cool, good luck today
05:28:32 <GO MORNING (1)> I am guesing you dont go that way much
05:28:34 <CraigC> supposed to be a bunch of black bears around Tower that people have been seeing
05:29:09 <GO MORNING (1)> or the shorter run up toward BZN and back goes through a pretty stretch of the park thats very quiet
05:29:19 <CraigC> I've never been to Bozeman, but I have gone up the north along Grayling Creek a lot. Good spot for spotting moose, and I used to fish it
05:29:23 <GO MORNING (1)> turn around whenever you want
05:30:41 <CraigC> and I've been along the Hebgen to Livingston many times when I was young, we had an uncle in Dillon MT, so we would stay there and then come over to the park
05:32:45 <ynpvisitor84> Interesting just saw a facebook post from the park talking about tourism dollars, but it showed beehive, not OF
05:33:07 <CraigC> hey Linda
05:33:18 <LindaG> CraigC, good morning g
05:33:23 <GO MORNING (1)> and not Grand Prismatic? wow
05:34:31 <CraigC> traffic jam getting into Midway yesterday... seems the most congested spot in the park nowadays
05:35:26 <CraigC> it's been 4 or 5 years since I have stopped there
05:36:21 <CraigC> after UGB, we moseyed around BSB and Biscuit
05:36:37 <GO MORNING (1)> yeah, it's the busiest place. Norris gets jammed too. Have not been to Canyon recently tho
05:36:52 <GO MORNING (1)> have you done the Grand Prismatic Overlook? its really nice
05:36:54 <CraigC> there were 3 or 4 cars at BSB, Spouter was spouting
05:37:38 <CraigC> GO MORNING (1), not yet, but it's on my list
05:37:50 <GO MORNING (1)> Stop at Midway early or late, preferably late when theres less steam
05:38:16 <GO MORNING (1)> well worth it, go when its less steamy if you can. that lot isnt as busy as Midway
05:38:44 <GO MORNING (1)> you do get a good look at all the colors and see the size, almost like the overhead postcards
05:38:48 <CraigC> Excelsior is cool, but GPS isn't worth the walk without some sunshine to bring out the colors
05:40:36 <CraigC> GO MORNING (1), did you see my post on FB at OF... I can't stop laughing
05:41:12 <GO MORNING (1)> checking for it ...
05:41:52 <CraigC> Joe, this is the pic, see if you can spot something amiss;
05:42:26 <LindaG> CraigC, Haha that's funny
05:42:52 <CraigC> my g/f's son was standing on the bench to get some shots, and when he saw the photo he got so mad... and I died
05:43:03 <GO MORNING (1)> to laugh at that
05:43:38 <LindaG> Spider
05:44:06 <LindaG> It was there last night
05:46:15 <CraigC> my view looks frozen
05:46:41 <LindaG> OF is moving
05:46:56 <LindaG> Slloowwllyy
05:47:22 <CraigC> I had to reload the page
05:47:28 <LindaG> Snowing too
05:48:05 <GO MORNING (1)> checked in :)
05:48:12 <Joe> Graham, with the moon at ~70% illumination you could not tell it came up last night, early dawn ~0430 gave us the first visible things, In fact if the OFL lights were not on you would not see Old Faithful, this does not bode well for night reports
05:48:45 <GO MORNING (1)> hoefully NPS will be able to reset it
05:48:53 <Joe> They have done something really bad with the night mode
05:49:00 <GO MORNING (1)> the VEC needs the down basin night reports
05:49:51 <Joe> I think they made it that way ( complaints about lights at night
05:50:37 <LindaG> Of
05:51:05 <Joe> we are not allowed to show the views that have the parking lots because of the lights
05:51:44 <GO MORNING (1)> well if its completely dark that doesnt help viewers either
05:51:58 <GO MORNING (1)> might need a reversal and acceptance of light problems
05:52:21 <GO MORNING (1)> the OF default can be changed so it avoids the lodge lights
05:52:34 <GO MORNING (1)> elk at electric peak cam
05:52:59 <GO MORNING (1)> woohoo its payday and 16 day weekend coming up
05:53:34 <GO MORNING (1)> Joe - I imaging parking lot lights at night would be ok
05:53:52 <GO MORNING (1)> or move the cam so its pointed higher - the black top wouldnt matter at night
05:54:00 <Craig-phone> VEC never caught Jarnos Rside entry yesterday. We observed it from lower hams and I asked the ranger if they could check on it. They opened GT and said no entry, yet there was
05:54:21 <Joe> Did you get the email from DaveK?
05:54:53 <GO MORNING (1)> maybe he wasnt getting a sync
05:54:58 <Joe> The black top is what I do
05:55:35 <GO MORNING (1)> i saw his email 2 days ago
05:56:21 <Joe> Showing the view they don't like us to use?
05:57:22 <GO MORNING (1)> night you can push it up. other times we cant use it
05:57:53 <GO MORNING (1)> i would have thought some people would like to see the activity, but guess more people complained
05:58:52 <LindaG> The email said except in the morning to get predictions set. I think the problem was we were setting it that way during the day.
05:59:06 <Joe> that is what I do and with the way they have dumbed down the night mode nothing can be seen
05:59:47 <Joe> i have sent emails and got no response
06:00:56 <LindaG>
06:05:01 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:05:14 <Joe> Hi Jarno
06:05:46 <Joe> Hi Linda

06:08:44 <LindaG> LC
06:09:35 <CraigC> hey Jarno
06:13:07 <Joe> oops I'm too used to that view :(
06:15:26 <GO MORNING (1)> i see Beartooth will not open this weekend due to the new snow. Dunraven is still scheduled to open ... hope it does
06:15:34 <LindaG> Grand?
06:15:37 <GO MORNING (1)> everyone up yet Craig?
06:17:55 <LindaG> Is that grand?
06:18:43 <Joe> Don't think so
06:19:20 <GO MORNING (1)> dome
06:19:36 <Joe> But I have beenwrong before:)
06:20:47 <GO MORNING (1)> looks like Dome intervals are 35 to 40min now
06:21:24 <LindaG> 😊
06:21:59 <Joe> Daisy
06:28:23 <CraigC> GO MORNING (1), just barely :)
06:31:33 <ynpvisitor999®> splash
06:36:26 <GO MORNING (1)> hopefully they will eat breakfast quickly Craig :)
06:40:12 <CraigC> no f-bombs when I went to the hotel breakfast
06:43:49 <GO MORNING (1)> that is what makes for a good start to the day :)
06:46:07 <Dave from B™> What are your plans for today, CraigC?
06:49:02 <Joe> Depression
06:49:35 <GO MORNING (1)> nooooo Craig doesnt need depression
06:49:51 <Joe> Dome
06:50:49 <Joe> Craig does not need that at all:)
06:53:46 <GO MORNING (1)> he is probably eating breakfast and trying to hurry along the others ..... glad i am not there to watch
06:53:56 <Cooper> good morning all
06:56:09 <Joe> non gazers do not fit well with gazers
06:56:25 <Dave from B™> Where is he in a hurry to get to?
06:57:14 <CraigC> in a hurry to beat the tourist that stop in the road if there is a bison 40 feet off the side
06:57:26 <GO MORNING (1)> heading North to Mammoth and East to wherever he gets to
06:57:40 <GO MORNING (1)> bear hunting
06:58:15 <CraigC> Dave from B™, we caught Grand, but ended up sitting by some know-it-all that thought he knew more about geysers than any of us;
06:58:18 <GO MORNING (1)> its been an hor since wake-up time ... everyone should be ready to depart
06:58:46 <Joe> good luck with that
06:59:30 <Dave from B™> Craig, you talking about the man in the front row?
06:59:37 <CraigC> yeah
06:59:50 <Dave from B™> That's the author of the Bible, TSB
06:59:55 <CraigC> huh
07:00:10 <Dave from B™> Geyser of Yellowstone author
07:00:13 <GO MORNING (1)> what does he know
07:00:50 <GO MORNING (1)> haha ... nice catch Craig
07:00:55 <CraigC> LOL
07:01:11 <CraigC> is it a keeper, or should I throw it back
07:01:24 <Dave from B™> Throw it back..too easy of a catch
07:01:49 <GO MORNING (1)> Dave needs coffee
07:01:54 <CraigC> you fell for that way too easily
07:04:08 <Dave from B™> I know LE in Mammoth. Be nice or I can find a way to put you in the clink for a few days.
07:04:23 <CraigC> ok, we're off... bbl
07:04:38 <GO MORNING (1)> have fun, thats a qick up and out
07:04:38 <CraigC> Dave from B™, wouldnt be my first time :)
07:04:56 <GO MORNING (1)> wave at West Gate :)
07:05:11 <Dave from B™> Have fun, CriagC!
07:29:03 <Dave from B™> FYI, Beartooth Pass is opening today
07:33:02 <GO MORNING (1)> did that change Dave? FB post said not opening
07:33:52 <Dave from B™> FB post this morning?
07:34:10 <GO MORNING (1)> MT side will open but not all the way through
07:35:17 <GO MORNING (1)> Montana Department of Transportation FB post
07:35:42 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's pulling a long interval
07:38:15 <Dave from B™> Well, I guess I better do some more research
07:38:59 <GO MORNING (1)> are you coming in that way next week?
07:41:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulgerie
07:41:44 <Dave from B™> No, coming in the fastest way. North Entrance
07:42:08 <Dave from B™> I'll be using NE Entrance and East Entrance during bif family trip at end of June
07:42:53 <Dave from B™> I hope you get SB on Sunday so it sets up for next Saturday
07:43:21 <GO MORNING (1)> that would be nice, could end up a bit later tho
07:43:34 <GO MORNING (1)> hopefully we will get a report today
07:45:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Does a temperature graph count as report?
07:46:07 <ynpvisitor999®> you can actually see the individual minors on the 24h graph
07:46:47 <Dave from B™> Definitely helps! Thanks
07:49:18 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like around 0800 yesterday the first 'chance' for an eruption, the next 'chance' around 1345 and then it becomes unclear what the next chance is. Probably the during the wide spikes, though
07:49:50 <Chancellor> Good Morning all
07:50:02 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Chancellor
07:51:23 <ynpvisitor54> It's only a matter of time before that spider plants itself in full view 😳
07:52:20 <ynpvisitor999®> plenty of bugs around, so spider will probably stick around for a long, long time until the wiper can be used
07:52:35 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting Vixen graph:
07:53:01 <GO MORNING (1)> thanks Jarno. what did it look like in the few days before the last eruption?
07:53:22 <GO MORNING (1)> I really dont think SB has had any chances yet
07:53:35 <GO MORNING (1)> just variable minor activity
07:53:35 <ynpvisitor999®> temperature hovering around 40°C until the eruption
07:53:51 <GO MORNING (1)> was it spikey or continuously hot?
07:53:58 <ynpvisitor999®> spiking
07:54:54 <GO MORNING (1)> we are still < 4 days
07:59:25 <ynpvisitor999®> This is 19-20 May. Left border is the first non-negative temperature since the logger came back up, right border is just after the major. All times in MDT.
07:59:50 <ynpvisitor999®> MST*
08:00:16 <GO MORNING (1)> Dunraven not opening at 0800 due to snow, dont know when
08:00:21 <ynpvisitor118> Dunraven not opening, no rescheduled time due to adverse weather conditions.
08:00:39 <ynpvisitor118> I'm a slow typer, lol
08:02:07 <Dave from B™> I wonder if Craig was hoping to do the Upper Loop today
08:02:17 <GO MORNING (1)> maybe it will open later
08:04:07 <ynpvisitor54> Dome on static
08:04:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger should be soon
08:04:39 <Dave from B™> GM, that would be my thought...once it warms up a bit
08:05:45 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Lori & sparekitty
08:06:10 <sparekitty> hola everyone! happy friday and long weekend!
08:11:42 <Joe> Castle
08:12:59 <Joe> or not
08:13:25 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, Castle
08:13:50 <Joe> yep thought it stopped
08:14:03 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that :)
08:14:25 <Joe> TSB posted in basin
08:14:54 <Dave from B™> Graham, do you know how long TSB will be at YNP?
08:15:07 <GO MORNING (1)> no idea
08:16:41 <GO MORNING (1)> Joe was in park for Lion this morning, sweet
08:17:13 <GO MORNING (1)> any news from CC?
08:17:55 <Dave from B™> Joe gets around
08:17:55 <Joe> thanks Graham
08:19:35 <Joe> I was going to stay and meet you all, but I changed my ming :)
08:19:36 <GO MORNING (1)> i decided not to flag it :)
08:19:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern and Steamboat notes are in
08:19:44 <Joe> mind*
08:21:21 <GO MORNING (1)> nice reports. sounds like recovery is progressing well
08:26:39 <Rice> And look at the Norris Logge Graph this monring, looks good also
08:26:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy soon
08:27:05 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully
08:27:56 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a Castle major
08:29:44 <GO MORNING (1)> YVO should update their text on the SB logger page, says 10 eruptions in the 2000s with last being March 2018 ... a little dated
08:30:11 <GO MORNING (1)> maybe they are waiting for the big 50
08:30:43 <Dave from B™> I'll be interested to see if any of the concessionaires have SB shirts available
08:40:56 <GO MORNING (1)> W gate getting busy
08:47:43 <ynpvisitor999®> going to be difficult to see Daisy due to Castle
09:04:25 <Joe> OF
09:04:39 <ynpvisitor999®> hi fluffy column
09:06:28 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin. When do your weekend racing festivities begin?
09:07:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Last night
09:08:20 <Dave from B™> Since when is Thursday a weekend?:)
09:08:35 <Dave from B™> I see #18 is 3rd
09:08:36 <sparekitty> when you're racing, thursday is a weekend.
09:09:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Dec 29 2011 Dave.
09:10:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Indy Lights at 1100 today
09:10:44 <Katie(14)> Good morning (and yes, my count number went the wrong way!)
09:11:11 <GO MORNING (1)> at least its still a small number, hope the duration didnt shrink
09:11:18 <Dave from B™> Katie, that's not good
09:11:31 <Dave from B™> Kevin, what is Indy Lights?
09:12:47 <Kevin L™🌵> It is like the Xfinity series for Indy Cars.
09:16:07 <Joe> Dome
09:16:15 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Cooper
09:17:07 <Cooper> ynpvisitor999®, Hi
09:28:24 <GO MORNING (1)> Dunraven open, snow tires required
09:29:15 <Kevin L™🌵> If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make snow tires from?
09:33:28 <GO MORNING (1)> full backup on W cam
09:34:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I suspect they make snow tires from a common substance dihydrogen mono-oxide in a solid state
09:34:27 <Joe> cam is dropping out again, lost control
09:34:40 <ynpvisitor98> ynpvisitor999®, lol
09:34:52 <ynpvisitor999®> aight - who's using the microwave now? :P
09:34:54 <Dave from B™> I thought they were made of snow
09:34:58 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Sam
09:35:02 <Sam> Good morning
09:35:17 <Sam> Yup, my cam just dropped
09:36:44 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo. Feeling reactive today?
09:38:51 <Jimbo Lithium> Yup, and very lightweight, too
09:39:39 <LindaG> So it's going to be one of those days I see
09:39:52 <sparekitty> can someone please tell me what's in the middle of the screen, along the far side of the river?
09:40:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Sprinkler or that plume above it?
09:40:29 <Jimbo Lithium> Sprinkler?
09:41:14 <sparekitty> thanks! i don't know the features here well
09:41:43 <Jimbo Lithium> I get the weirdest spam - I got invited to the Valve World Americas 2019 conference
09:42:06 <Jimbo Lithium> Can't go, I have to go to a different meeting
09:53:52 <LindaG> Dome

11:09:02 <lori lurking> not sure why I lost my name. but still lurking, lol. was it already mentioned East gate closed and Dunraven opened with snow tires required? And they have equipment trouble, so won't get the Beartooth open from the YNP side for the weekend?
11:09:07 <LindaGp> One down, on to go ☺
11:09:18 <ynpvisitor999®> the geysers are disappointing me...
11:10:13 <Cooper(11)> what can I see spiking slightly behind the Grand Area, I saw water, Bijou?
11:10:16 <LindaGp> lori lurking, thanks for letting us know. Everyone there I'm sure would like to know.
11:10:45 <GO MORNING (1)> have not seen an alert about East Entrance tho .....
11:12:14 <Cooper(11)> I'm off for a bit, enjoy :grand:
11:12:31 <LindaGp> Cooper(11), bye
11:12:44 <LindaGp> Dome
11:12:49 <LindaGp> Quick look
11:13:59 <LindaGp> Bee quiet
11:14:48 <lori lurking> No text on that, but on the map and Stop The Car Trading Post fb page had it.
11:17:47 <lori lurking> Phone line has Sedge Bay to east Entrance closed weather and road conditions. Caution on all park roads, icy and snow and slushy conditions.
11:19:25 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
11:19:47 <LindaGp> 😊 you tell em
11:20:21 <Kevin L™🌵> My hummingbird was back this morning.
11:21:02 <LindaGp> Nice. Do you put up a feeder? Or use your flowers?
11:21:14 <lori lurking> My dad had one that was always the first, would hang at the window if he didn't have the feeder out yet. We called him Fat Boy, he (?) was the chubbiest one I have ever seen!
11:21:40 <GO MORNING (1)> Fountain 31m duration, it's all over the place
11:22:03 <LindaGp> Ahhh that's cute. I do love mine. We only get ruby throated hummingbirda
11:22:04 <Kevin L™🌵> They just like the lemon flowers. That is cute Lori.
11:22:27 <GO MORNING (1)> lemon spring below overflow ... FLD is open
11:22:50 <GO MORNING (1)> Bead and Box Spring active
11:22:58 <LindaGp> I guess go morning really quit. Lol
11:23:28 <GO MORNING (1)> haha .. nooooo dont quit
11:24:00 <LindaGp> They are amazingly aggressive birds. They knock each other off the feeder
11:24:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Just outside Zion my Aunt would put out feeders and had a massive amount of hummingbirds. The colleges in the area would study them. The City of Springdale named the street next to her house Hummingbird Lane.
11:25:24 <LindaGp> How Nice! I usually have 3 or 4 that come to my feeders.
11:25:43 <Kevin L™🌵> One school did an estimate of how many birds were there according to her feeder fill rate and if I remember correctly it was over 5000.
11:26:06 <LindaGp> Wow thats a lot!
11:26:10 <Kevin L™🌵> She did several gallons a day.
11:26:35 <LindaGp> I guess so, it can be time consuming
11:27:13 <LindaGp> I had two at o ce on my feeder and that was strange because they are so territorial
11:27:14 <Kevin L™🌵> She also raised banty chickens and had over 100 of those. Knew them all by name too.
11:27:38 <LindaGp>
11:27:59 <LindaGp> How r your chickens you havent mentioned them lately
11:28:35 <Kevin L™🌵> They have been great. I have a few old ones that may not make it through the summer.
11:29:15 <LindaGp> 😕 u need a 🐣
11:30:02 <LindaGp> What kind are they?
11:30:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I keep the coops under an apple and a fig tree so they don't get the direct heat.
11:30:59 <LindaGp> Bee quiet
11:31:30 <LindaGp> Along with everything else
11:31:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Mostly leghorns. I have an easter egger and a few Plymouth Rock.
11:32:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Bee is waiting for OF window. :P
11:32:25 <LindaGp> Ain't that the truth, bad bee
11:37:15 <LindaGp> There's a crowd waiting for grand
11:40:15 <Dave from B™> crowd at Grand
11:40:27 <Dave from B™> haha....didn't see your post, Linda
11:41:25 <LindaGp> 😊
11:42:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I can't believe that you can almost see the pool from this cam.
11:43:27 <Kevin L™🌵> It will be fun to see Giant and Oblong.
11:43:30 <LindaGp> It's steaming
11:43:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Should have a great view of Penta too.
11:43:59 <LindaGp> Cut down a few trees and we could see grand
11:44:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Chainsaws prevent forest fires....
11:45:01 <LindaGp> Lol
11:47:54 <LindaGp> Bulger
11:48:01 <LindaGp> Grand
11:48:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice
11:55:09 <Dave from B™> East Ent road open....chains advised
11:55:22 <lori lurking> east gate open- snow tires advised.
11:55:52 <LindaGp> Old tardy
11:56:38 <GO MORNING (1)> i think Penta will be hiding behind the trees
11:56:54 <LindaGp> 2nd
11:57:00 <Casey> Boom
11:57:35 <Dave from B™> nice
11:58:02 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd done

11:58:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand done completely
11:59:41 <Dave from B™> chains? Not sure where that came from
12:00:45 <LindaGp> Bee splash

12:01:32 <GO MORNING (1)> everything fits in the suitcase ... yeah
12:01:35 <LindaGp> Uh more splashes
12:01:36 <Kevin L™🌵> That looks better
12:01:45 <Casey> Splashy splashy
12:02:11 <LindaGp> OF window opens 1 minute
12:02:13 <Dave from B™> How about a no indy?
12:02:21 <LindaGp> Hold that splash bee
12:04:56 <ynpvisitor999®> T2C | 9m05s
12:05:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham's packing tool:
12:07:01 <Dave from B™> I heard he vacuum packed all his clothes
12:07:47 <Kevin L™🌵> That works.
12:08:02 <Katie(14)> Does he take it with him to re-pack?
12:08:07 <LindaGp> Of
12:08:25 <Dave from B™> haha...portable VP...I hope its lighter than mine
12:09:02 <GO MORNING (1)> i will take it to SB to deal with the garbage there
12:09:45 <GO MORNING (1)> case is just under the 50 pound weight limit too
12:09:55 <GO MORNING (1)> what have I forgotten?
12:10:40 <ynpvisitor77> TSB needs to enter a major on his Castle
12:12:05 <LindaGp> Dark Clouds moving in
12:13:46 <LindaGp> Ok so what were we doing? 😉
12:15:36 <ynpvisitor999®> AB
12:18:03 <LindaGp> Back to being quiet
12:19:51 <ynpvisitor84> time to follow the flag
12:20:18 <LindaGp> ?
12:20:42 <ynpvisitor84> tour bus leader on the bike path
12:21:10 <LindaGp> Ah
12:21:37 <ynpvisitor84> and to wander way off the trail
12:22:11 <LindaGp> And encounter a bison
12:35:08 <LindaGp> Dome
12:58:00 <Dave from B™> Castle; should be "Steam Locomotive Geyser"
12:58:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Thought that was Daisy
12:58:39 <LindaGp> Hehe yeah it just pumps it out
13:00:46 <Kevin L™🌵> If you listen at Daisy when it is ending it sounds like a steam engine pulling out of the station.
13:02:34 <Dave from B™> Yeah, true. I was thinking of the steam output.
13:07:10 <GO MORNING (1)> ok, I did quit that time
13:08:47 <LindaGp> When do you leave?
13:10:13 <LindaGp> Might be a no Indy day
13:10:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Indy is Sunday
13:11:08 <LindaGp> Zoom zoom
13:11:48 <Kevin L™🌵> It is carb day today.
13:12:26 <LindaGp> LC

13:23:26 <LindaGp> Daisy
13:37:12 <LindaGp> OF
13:38:33 <GO MORNING (1)> clouds starting to break up and shadows are appearing, yeah
13:38:47 <Jimbo Lithium> I didn't quit, I reenlithted
13:44:26 <GO MORNING (1)> holiday Friday rush at N Gate?
13:46:21 <LindaGp> LC
13:47:26 <LindaGp> The bee contingent has arrived
13:53:10 <LindaGp> Bee splashes
13:53:25 <Jimbo Lithium> Soup's on
13:57:12 <GO MORNING (1)> not many peeps out there
13:57:38 <GO MORNING (1)> is that a ranger group?
13:58:58 <GO MORNING (1)> an indi watcher?
13:59:52 <GO MORNING (1)> Pat has arrived, logged Dome
14:00:20 <GO MORNING (1)> i expect she will be waiting for Bee
14:01:40 <LindaGp> Guys got a suit on?
14:05:02 <LindaGp> Bub lers
14:05:16 <LindaGp> Bee is hot
14:06:30 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed a first for me - wearing a suit on the boardwalk
14:06:41 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully he knows what risk he's taking
14:07:17 <LindaGp> Lunch hour break?
14:07:36 <LindaGp> And he's nimble
14:07:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Must be related to Oliver Douglas.
14:08:11 <Katie(14)> certainly an attention seeker
14:08:27 <ynpvisitor999®> it's working I guess
14:08:39 <ynpvisitor999®> surge
14:08:42 <ynpvisitor27> "Look Ma, I'm on WebCam"
14:08:46 <ynpvisitor999®> plash
14:08:58 <ynpvisitor999®> and nothing
14:09:04 <ynpvisitor999®> splash
14:10:04 <LindaGp> Hmmm calmed down
14:11:25 <ynpvisitor999®> at least the guy in suit is statying
14:11:48 <ynpvisitor999®> splash
14:13:32 <LindaGp> Bees messing with me
14:14:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Give it an hour
14:14:07 <ynpvisitor999®> big splash
14:14:24 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm signing up for that, Kevin
14:14:29 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm NOT*
14:15:22 <ynpvisitor999®> bubbler
14:15:25 <LindaGp> Hope not puts it in OF window
14:15:27 <GO MORNING (1)> at least someone is smart enough to sit on the bench
14:16:20 <GO MORNING (1)> bubbler erupting
14:16:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
14:16:43 <ynpvisitor999®> .

14:16:44 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:16:45 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:16:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
14:17:51 <ynpvisitor999®> a close-up Indy start :)
14:17:53 <GO MORNING (1)> nce to see it start
14:18:33 <LindaGp> My phone froze I sent text
14:18:48 <Jimbo Lithium> Watching I am
14:19:17 <LindaGp> I couldnt get to everything yikes
14:20:11 <LindaGp> Thx jarno
14:20:18 <Cooper> Thx
14:22:01 <Dave from B™> Hello Indy
14:22:18 <Dave from B™> An aurum BH dual would look nice
14:22:35 <LindaGp> Sure would
14:22:56 <GO MORNING (1)> give the gazers time to get there after BH
14:23:30 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
14:23:34 <LindaGp> bh
14:23:45 <ynpvisitor999®> took a while
14:23:47 <Cooper> :bee::bee::bee:
14:24:10 <Katie(14)> that was a nice long indy - love those when I'm in basin
14:24:47 <GO MORNING (1)> only 7min, not that long
14:24:59 <LindaGp> Getting wet
14:25:13 <Cooper> I love getting wet, aka a "beehive shower"
14:25:29 <LindaGp> Indy still going
14:28:55 <LindaGp> Yay!
14:29:37 <ynpvisitor999®> that was fun
14:29:42 <ynpvisitor56> Was that Old Faithful?
14:29:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion splashing
14:29:48 <LindaGp> Sure was
14:29:54 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, that was Bee 56
14:30:00 <ynpvisitor999®> or Beehive, so you want
14:30:59 <ynpvisitor56> When does it go again?
14:31:10 <ynpvisitor999®> OF?
14:31:20 <ynpvisitor999®> or Beehive?
14:31:36 <ynpvisitor56> The last one
14:32:01 <LindaGp> Beehive is unpredictable but a about one a day.
14:32:01 <Dave from B™> That's Beehive. It erupts every 15-24 hours
14:32:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Well, Beehive is predictable to a certain extend. Might go again in about 24 hours give or take 2 hours
14:33:01 <ynpvisitor56> Isn’t this the Old Faithful webcam?
14:33:17 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
14:33:23 <Dave from B™> Old Faihtful erupted at 1336 ns
14:33:33 <ynpvisitor999®> It is, but when Old Faithful won't go soon, we look at other geysers around it
14:33:37 <Dave from B™> Not due for a bit
14:34:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Was in the depot with the saw on. Didn't hear the text.
14:34:16 <Katie(14)> Predictions for predictable geysers, including Old Faithful, are on the right.
14:34:17 <ynpvisitor999®> next time better :)
14:34:27 <GO MORNING (1)> you didnt miss Aurum, no worries
14:34:51 <ynpvisitor56> So Old Faithful is next?
14:35:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Just keep watching 56. You won't miss Old Faithful. Trust me!
14:35:31 <ynpvisitor999®> for the geysers we can predict, it's up next. However, if you stick around you can see some more geysers around it :)
14:36:27 <ynpvisitor56> Is Old Faithful bigger than Beehive?
14:37:06 <Dave from B™> No
14:37:14 <Kevin L™🌵> If you got Beehive (unlike some of us), you got the best geyser you can see on this cam.
14:37:42 <ynpvisitor56> Thanks. I will keep watching.
14:37:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Beehive tends to be bigger than Old Faithful (it can reach up to 200 feet if I recall correctly, while Old Faithful's maximum height lies around 180 feet, with as average some 120-140 feet).
14:38:08 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, Did u see it?
14:38:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I did a Get Smart. Missed it by that much. At least you got to show it!
14:39:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Though when there's strong wind, Beehive's height tends to be low due to the water column being very thin and consisting out of smaller droplets than Old Faithful
14:39:32 <LindaGp> Yes I was happy about that
14:39:41 <ynpvisitor77> Beehive erupts "roughly" once a day, Old Faithful erupts "roughly" every 1 1/2 hours
14:39:58 <Kevin L™🌵> That was PAINFUL yesterday.
14:40:25 <Dave from B™> This year, OF is the 4th largest geyser in this geyser basin behind Beehive, Grand and Giant
14:40:29 <ynpvisitor56> So I was lucky then.
14:40:29 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, I know i didn't want to be in that position 😕
14:40:41 <ynpvisitor77> yes, very
14:41:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Still have bruises on my forehead from pounding it on the desk.
14:41:36 <GO MORNING (1)> is it time for our relaxation exercises?
14:41:37 <LindaGp> Lol
14:42:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I do have an appointment with my cardiologist coming up.
14:43:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Also have 22 pounds of tannerite to help relieve my frustrations.
14:43:59 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have down basin in view for a bit? I wonder what Bulger is up to. Maybe we can catch Grotto, or even a Rocket
14:45:00 <ynpvisitor999®> well, no Grotto, so that answers that...
14:45:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger's silent too at the moment and raining a bit
14:47:55 <GO MORNING (1)> the clouds look yucky. looks like a rain line is streaming east too ..... could stay like this
14:48:06 <GO MORNING (1)> but the sun wll come out tomorrow ... Eric will fix it
14:48:38 <LindaGp> Amazing the difference between the two views
14:48:50 <ynpvisitor999®> very contrasting
14:49:00 <GO MORNING (1)> i think this one will spread though
14:49:25 <LindaGp> What is that steaming by daisy?
14:49:32 <ynpvisitor56> How long is this area of geysers?
14:49:47 <GO MORNING (1)> i have a few things to do ...... will stop in when i can and then see you on the other side
14:49:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably Comet Linda.
14:50:04 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, thx
14:50:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Take care and have a good trip.
14:50:24 <LindaGp> Bulger
14:50:32 <GO MORNING (1)> 56 - the geyser basin is a couple of miles along the river
14:50:46 <LindaGp> Safe trip GO MORNING (1),
14:50:58 <Kevin L™🌵> 56, From Old Faithful (OF) to they geysers you see is about 2 1/2 miles.
14:51:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger major
14:51:40 <GO MORNING (1)> thanks all.....see ya
14:51:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Have fun!
14:52:10 <ynpvisitor56> I didn’t realize there were that many geysers. This is amazing.
14:52:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Artemisia going?
14:52:37 <LindaGp> LC
14:53:24 <LindaGp> I'll check in a minute jarnoo
14:53:37 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
14:54:12 <ynpvisitor56> Why are some words in blue?
14:54:15 <Dave from B™> 56, are you up on the geyser dashboard?
14:54:59 <ynpvisitor999®> 56, of all the springs in the Upper Geyser Basin (you're seeing only a part of it on this on the webcam), more than 300 have been known to have had an eruption in recorded history
14:54:59 <Dave from B™> The Help & Important links on the right has lots of info you may be interested in. Check out the Webcam Reference link
14:55:02 <ynpvisitor56> I have some pictures and graphs and predictions
14:55:32 <ynpvisitor56> Thanks. I will look.
14:57:13 <LindaGp> That looks cool
14:57:29 <LindaGp> Something is brewing by arty
14:58:43 <LindaGp> 2 minutes to Old Faithful window
14:58:58 <ynpvisitor999®> sigh
14:59:18 <ynpvisitor56> That panorama is amazing. All our tour did is stop at Old Faithful and we left right after that.
14:59:21 <ynpvisitor999®> almost time for mandatory ego boosting of OF :P
14:59:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Go Aurum!!!
15:00:34 <LindaGp> O minutes kick off
15:00:57 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor56, here is old faithful
15:01:22 <ynpvisitor56> OK that looks familiar.
15:01:52 <LindaGp> Couple of minutes it will go off
15:02:11 <ynpvisitor56> I can’t believe how much closer you can get to those other geysers.
15:02:52 <LindaGp> I can get real close to this
15:03:01 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
15:03:04 <Dave from B™> 56, hopefully you can come back to YNP and tour on your own. It is the way to go.
15:04:31 <ynpvisitor56> Wow! What a view. I think I will have to plan a trip myself. This looks like you could spend a week just here.
15:05:13 <LindaGp> You could definitely
15:05:32 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd bet you wouldn't have seen everything even if you were to stay forever in the park
15:06:59 <Dave from B™> Hey guys, it looks like we have a new geyser gazer!:)
15:07:17 <ynpvisitor999®> certainly is starting to look like it :D
15:07:44 <LindaGp> 😊
15:07:57 <Dave from B™> here's a link for you 56
15:08:00 <Dave from B™>
15:08:39 <Cooper> I like that link Dave, its accurate
15:08:51 <LindaGp> I've never seen that
15:10:30 <Dave from B™> It was updated in 2017 but the original article is probably 10-15 years old
15:10:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is another good one:
15:11:12 <Dave from B™> 56, people from all over the world come to this chatroom to talk about and watch geysers
15:11:54 <ynpvisitor999®> can confirm that
15:11:57 <ynpvisitor56> Thanks. I will check them out after Old Faithful.
15:12:54 <Cooper> and if you stick around on this cam you will learn a lot
15:13:08 <LindaGp> Lol
15:13:18 <LindaGp> OF
15:13:21 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
15:13:28 <Cooper> Old Faithful
15:13:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Spelling isn't something you will learn.
15:13:56 <Cooper> thats true, we suck at speling
15:14:01 <Cooper> spelling*
15:14:22 <ynpvisitor999®> OF needs more jumper cables
15:14:48 <ynpvisitor56> That is pretty. You are right though. I like Beehive better.
15:15:28 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor56, your hooked 😉
15:15:54 <LindaGp> I think beehive is everyone's favorite
15:16:05 <Cooper> 56, once you start to love geysers you get a disease curable only by seeing/watching geysers
15:16:16 <ynpvisitor999®> of the biggies, it definitely is, Linda
15:16:37 <Kevin L™🌵> It has cost me well over $50,000. Be warned!
15:17:02 <LindaGp> Seriously?
15:17:16 <Kevin L™🌵> And don't miss the small ones. They are as much fun as the big ones.
15:17:20 <ynpvisitor86> ynpvisitor56, just curious, how did you find this chatroom?
15:17:35 <Cooper> were you just wandering on GT
15:18:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder where the webcam spider usually hangs out
15:19:01 <ynpvisitor56> I was in an office and a guy had it on. Looked interesting so he gave me the link.
15:19:46 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor999®, I knew that spider would come out evetually
15:20:01 <ynpvisitor56> Th article was interesting. I will have to wait until I get home for the video.
15:20:26 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor56, each time a word turns blue means ita a geyser so click on it and it takes you to a map

19:10:56 <LindaG> This hasnt moved and didnt do OF, he took cam from me
19:13:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't been paying much attention to it.
19:14:10 <LindaG> OF was in window around 8:30. Oh well.
19:14:54 <LindaG> I entered lion as ini, pretty sure it was
19:16:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I know I missed one a few days back when a truck hit a pole and killed my internet.
19:17:51 <LindaG> Oh well how r u?
19:18:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Hanging in. Grandsons came down today. Been keeping me busy.
19:19:17 <LindaG> Good to stay busy.
19:20:29 <Kevin L™🌵> If the weather cooperates then there is a lot of racing this weekend.
19:21:05 <LindaG> My brother used to go to the races
19:22:54 <Kevin L™🌵> The Indy Lights race was great today. The winner was 7/1000th of a second ahead at the line.
19:23:45 <LindaG> That's when you wished you stepped on the gas sooner 😉
19:24:37 <Kevin L™🌵> The guy that won was second and ended up about 10 inches ahead after 100 miles of racing.
19:26:12 <LindaG> Wow 100 miles
19:27:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Looking like rain at the Indy 500 but the Charlotte 600 is looking good.
19:28:30 <LindaG> 👍
19:30:33 <LindaG> Any idea whose doing cam in the morning?
19:31:12 <Kevin L™🌵> No. I have a feeling it may end up on OF for a lot of the weekend.
19:31:37 <LindaG> Hey it moved
19:33:55 <LindaG> I may be able to do CCs shift, I'll check with Joe in the morning
19:35:47 <LindaG> Cam down
19:37:13 <LindaG> Cam up
19:38:24 <LindaG> Good night
19:39:13 <kcmule> improbable report on gt
19:50:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Strange report. Says he saw 10 burst from sponge.
19:51:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure if that means he saw both or if that was just sponge.
19:54:55 <Kevin L™🌵> I couldn't find anything that says CC shift is covered tomorrow Linda.
20:26:16 <LindaG> Hey craig
20:28:08 <CraigC> hey Linda
20:28:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Cold yet?
20:29:25 <CraigC> YES
20:29:54 <CraigC> we left Fountain and went and watched it from our car over by where the old Fountain Hotel was
20:46:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you find some bears?
20:48:03 <CraigC> 3 black bears, and one griz way up on a mtn in Lamar
20:59:53 <Kevin L™🌵> No Packers?
21:02:11 <CraigC> how's everything going with so many camops gone
21:05:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I think this may be the view for a lot of the weekend and next week
21:46:01 <Joe> anyone driving the cam?
21:46:33 <CraigC> not I said the goose
21:47:00 <Joe> HI Craig
21:47:12 <CraigC> hey Joe
21:49:57 <Kevin L™🌵> It has been here for a long time Joe
21:50:31 <Joe> Thanks Kevin
21:51:30 <Joe> probably wont be able to see anything until daylight again
21:52:13 <Joe> If it gets that way I'll put it on OF
21:53:14 <Joe> Craig Having a great time in YNP
21:53:20 <Joe> ?
21:54:35 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember an NCIS where they had an internet video feed that someone hijacked and robbed a place. I wonder if we could get Eric to do something like that when an OF window starts it sets the public output to a video of an old OF eruption and we can use the cam for other geysers.
21:55:53 <CraigC> Joe, yeah, I just loaded pics to Facebook, you need to join and ignore all the crap and just look at cool photos
21:57:18 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, lol
21:57:47 <Joe> Kevin that is what we need:)
21:58:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Bet no one would know the difference.
21:59:18 <Joe> I think you are right, haha
22:00:56 <CraigC> I shot this a little while ago;
22:01:18 <Joe> Craig, I wear tinfoil hats :)
22:02:28 <Joe> nice Craig
22:03:11 <Kevin L™🌵> That is awesome.
22:03:53 <Joe> Do you have an ap on phone to upload like that?
22:04:12 <CraigC> I took it with my DSLR on a tripod
22:05:06 <CraigC> I'm starting to like taking videos as much as photos
22:05:11 <Joe> How do you upload so quickly?
22:05:53 <Joe> Castle
22:05:59 <CraigC> I load all my files from my camera onto my Surface Pro, then upload from it to youtube on wifi here at hotel
22:07:14 <CraigC> it took about 15 mins to upload, cuz of hotel wifi. From my home, on Xfinity, it would have been 4 or 5 mins, maybe less
22:07:34 <Joe> OK thanks
22:08:05 <CraigC> I try to empty my SD cards on my cameras every day
22:08:55 <CraigC> I met Kyle at Fountain, nice dude
22:09:57 <Joe> Nice I hope to meet some of you all someday
22:09:59 <CraigC> And Pat Snyder, Bill Johnson and his wife, and Tara was there, who I have met a few times
22:10:51 <CraigC> missed Kat, see from GT she was at GH
22:10:55 <Joe> Going to get too dark to tell Castles status
22:12:10 <Joe> If everything goes well I have aYNP trip planed Aug 24th
22:12:39 <CraigC> maybe I can get up there then
22:13:34 <Joe> HI DaveM
22:18:22 <Joe> I think Dave has the cam, but I cant tell where it is DB? Grand to Bh?
22:18:54 <CraigC> does DaveM check into this chat?
22:19:21 <Kevin L™🌵> It looks like it
22:19:41 <Joe> Just as a number
22:21:14 <Joe> I do not like what they have done to the night mode of the cam
22:23:47 <Kevin L™🌵> It is terrible.
22:23:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Heading to bed.
22:25:34 <Joe> All i could see last night was OF, barely. It it was not for the OFL lights OF would not be seen with these settings
22:26:14 <Joe> Night Kevin same here
22:52:40 <ynpvisitor61> cam is down
23:21:52 <Joe> Back up @2312
