04:55:07 <CraigC> mornin Joe
04:58:59 <Joe> Hi Craig
04:59:30 <Joe> Are you home now?
04:59:53 <Joe> OF
05:07:32 <Joe> Daisy in ~ 20 70 30 min Grand is at 11h 11min so soon
05:09:36 <Joe> 20 to 30*
05:14:52 <LindaG> Good morning
05:19:13 <Joe> Hi Linda
05:21:34 <LindaG> Hi, ah lion woke up
05:26:24 <CraigC> Joe, yeah, home now :(
05:26:29 <CraigC> hey Linda
05:26:41 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
05:34:22 <Joe> It is a very sad thing to have to leave thr park!!
05:34:26 <LindaG> Getting in my walk before it gets hot and my shift begins. Be back in a little.
05:34:54 <Joe> Walk fast
06:15:56 <LindaG> I'm back. Can take cam whenever ready
06:17:21 <Joe> Take it away
06:17:56 <LindaG> Got it
06:22:14 <ynpvisitor85> Lost cam
06:23:27 <ynpvisitor85> Rebooting tablet
06:24:02 <Joe> Cam is good here
06:24:50 <ynpvisitor85> Yeah it was on my end I guess.
06:30:04 <ynpvisitor118> I’m appalled by gazers treatment of Steph yesterday.
06:31:39 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor118, ?
06:33:11 <CraigC> I'd recommend not discussing it on this public site that has lots of anonymous eyes
06:33:59 <CraigC> private messages would be better, IMO
06:36:15 <ynpvisitor76> That’s fine but they should know that attitude isn’t acceptable anywhere
06:38:32 <CraigC> OF
06:39:25 <CraigC> I try to be a friendly person, and I try to be around friendly people, and that is all I have to say about that. :)
06:45:45 <Joe> Looking at the grand note: I thought I saw Grand at 0510 I'll post it ?
06:48:08 <Joe> +Nope deleted it does not fit time wise, must have erupted in the fog
06:49:27 <CraigC> probably between midnight and 1?
06:49:49 <Joe> I'm not leaving anything questionable, too many double flag crazies here
06:50:36 <CraigC> if there was one around 5 hours from the last entry, then 510 could fit, no?
06:51:02 <ynpvisitor39> ynpvisitor76, it's an age old problemm when gazers have been sitting somewhere for days and answering the same questions over and over. It doesn't necessarily apply to "gazers" as a group. People are people.
06:51:05 <Joe> Yes Craig but could not see that one either
06:52:03 <Joe> 0510 came ouy to 11h 15 min from last seen
06:52:17 <Joe> out*
06:56:39 <LindaGp> Lion
06:56:53 <Joe> TSB posted Lion
06:57:13 <CraigC> surprised he is not at SB
06:57:38 <LindaGp> Yeah I was just about to post it
06:57:44 <CraigC> I've thought about throwing sleeping bags in my jeep and driving back up
06:58:02 <LindaGp> CraigC, go for it
06:58:22 <LindaGp> Joe, so we are totally out of grand window?
06:58:25 <Joe> Craig, did the GF's son enjoy his visit to the park?
06:58:38 <CraigC> not ambitious enough to pack, I haven;t even put away my laundry that I did yesterday
06:58:56 <Joe> I do not know Linda
06:59:24 <LindaGp> Ok back to down basin
06:59:24 <CraigC> Joe, seems like he did, I hope so. He thanked us several times when we got back
07:00:13 <CraigC> he saw bears, Grand, OF, BH, lower falls, elk, bison, sheep, eagles
07:00:16 <Joe> Super!! it is hard not to like a YNP visit :)
07:01:09 <Joe> He saw more than most of us see in a trip :)
07:02:09 <CraigC> we took my daughter's friend for her first time a few years ago, and all the time we were driving, she was on her phone, and I figured she must have not thought much, and was bummed. But now she goes all the time. So I guess I read it all wrong
07:02:48 <Barrett> I couldn't care less about seeing wildlife and trees in yellowstone. I just want to get to the thermal features. Also SB so tempting
07:03:42 <Joe> I guess that 0510 would fit for Grand 11 h 15 min that gives two 5h plus eruptions I'll post it again
07:03:53 <Barrett> Even if it would be crushed ;.; compared to next weekend.
07:04:05 <CraigC> I like bears and wolves pretty much equally to geysers. But SB would probably tip the scales over everything else. :)
07:04:43 <Barrett> I'd be so mad if i drove just to miss SB too. I spent 21 hours staring at SB last weekend
07:04:51 <Barrett> left Norris 5 hours before it erupted
07:05:26 <CraigC> Barrett, did I meet you? I was there for a while and left about 3 hours before it erupted
07:05:52 <Barrett> I didn't mention my name, and didn't catch everyone's so maybe
07:06:12 <Barrett> I arrived at noon last sunday, stayed the whole night to watch it
07:06:12 <CraigC> I was with my 85 year old mom, so we hung for a while at the lower platform
07:06:16 <Barrett> didn't sleep at all
07:06:31 <Barrett> ah nope. Was at the upper platform the whole time
07:06:39 <CraigC> bummer
07:07:10 <Barrett> I wanted to stay longer but I needed to drive home to fall asleep.
07:07:37 <CraigC> I spent maybe 5 or 6 hours this last Saturday, but I was playing tour guide again, so I felt fortunate that I got that much
07:07:41 <Joe> I posted that Grand now lets see what the double flag crazies do with it :)
07:07:55 <CraigC> Joe, :)
07:08:13 <Barrett> double flag crazies?
07:08:15 <CraigC> Barrett, where do you live
07:08:34 <Barrett> Idaho Falls
07:08:41 <CraigC> lucky :)
07:08:46 <ynpvisitor39> was that last week or the week before Barrett?
07:08:53 <CraigC> so why aren't you at SB right now?
07:08:55 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
07:09:23 <Joe> Yes people like to flag an entry twice, which deletes your entry
07:09:56 <ynpvisitor117> Remember we’re all just a bunch of grandstanders
07:10:07 <Barrett> well was hoping to not deal with memorial day crowds
07:10:23 <Barrett> *is still pissed about my East Sentinel entry being deleted*
07:10:53 <Joe> They did not see what you saw, but feel they must double flag your entry
07:11:08 <Barrett> I didn't spend days observing it and getting lucky to see it erupt from the very start. This was from 2015
07:11:55 <Joe> I think all flaging should be approved by an administrator
07:12:19 <Barrett> just to have it double flagged. I was kinda relying on GT to keep track of my times for me so I wouldn't have to do it myself. But I see GT is unreliable for that so I need to log my times on my computer and save them
07:12:30 <LindaGp> BA
07:12:47 <Barrett> BA?
07:13:15 <Joe> The flagging rules need to be changed!
07:13:32 <Joe> Anemone Big
07:13:51 <CraigC> Barrett, I had a brain fart, I was there at SB the one before that, on May 13th, then left before it erupted. Then I was there this last Saturday
07:13:51 <Barrett> even if something is removed from the main db listing it should still be availble for the person that posted it.
07:14:00 <Joe> we post BA for that
07:15:10 <Joe> yes I agree but a double flag deletes it with no record of what or who
07:16:49 <Barrett> so i noticed there is either an error on the GT map or in the Geysers of Yellowstone book. The map in the Geysers of Yellostone book doesn't match the GT map for Solstice and New Geyser. The two are switched in one of them
07:16:51 <LindaGp> LS
07:18:24 <ynpvisitor39> Barrett that's a good reason for keeping a paper notebook - my GT entries don't have the detail that my notebook does, so I write things down
07:19:54 <Joe> Linda, your LS went as secondary to yesterdays has not been 24 hours yet
07:20:15 <LindaGp> Ok
07:24:40 <ynpvisitor13> Looking forward to see Oblong from the new camera position.
07:29:08 <Joe> Yes there will be no doubt about Oblong when it erupts
07:29:29 <LindaGp> Bee is quiet
07:32:10 <LindaGp> Morning Kevin
07:34:46 <LindaGp> LC
07:34:48 <Joe> LC
07:35:41 <LindaGp> 😊
07:41:09 <Joe> Daisy should be erupting within the next 1/2 hour
07:41:27 <LindaGp> Ok
07:42:48 <Joe> Just my guess 2h 20 min vverage s/b 9h 20 min we are at 9h 4min now
07:43:01 <Joe> average*
07:43:34 <CraigC> what is "s/b"
07:43:46 <LindaGp> Sounds good. I'll check on lion in a while
07:43:48 <Joe> should be
07:43:55 <CraigC> :)
07:44:52 <LindaGp> Or steam/boat 😉
07:46:38 <Joe> to the right of Daisy's location at the edge of the open spot is that Bank
07:47:53 <Joe> Far right on edge?
07:48:04 <Joe> see it now
07:48:58 <CraigC> here is a pic I took of bank, even though I didn't know it was bank;
07:49:55 <LindaGp> It's steaming?
07:50:06 <Joe> Nice craig
07:50:19 <Joe> yes Linda
07:50:34 <LindaGp> 👍
07:51:58 <Joe> how do you catalog that stuff Craig? I can't even remember which of my names is my first name :(
07:54:14 <CraigC> well, that one I just took 2 days ago :) I store photos in a chaotic way, but this would be in a folder "Yellowstone", and subfolders on dates and then which lens
07:56:56 <Joe> I had my first name tattooed on my arm, so I could remember it :)
07:56:58 <Dave from home> Good morning fellow GAZERS
07:57:02 <CraigC> LMAO
07:57:14 <Dave from home> I hope it says "Joe"
07:57:14 <CraigC> I wish Dave would greet me, also
07:57:16 <LindaGp> Dave from home, morning
07:57:18 <Joe> Hello Dave
07:57:49 <Joe> Wait Dave I'll look :)
07:57:54 <Dave from home> haha CraigC
07:58:01 <CraigC> do you remember which arm?
07:58:22 <Joe> there is the problem :(
07:58:24 <LindaGp> Those 50/50 choices always stump me
07:59:13 <Dave from home> Hopefully you put it somewhere you can still see:). We are all less flexible these days.
07:59:29 <Joe> :)
08:01:16 <Kevin L™🌵> You could have a t shirt done with "I am Joe" written backwards so you could read it in the mirror.
08:01:49 <Joe> I wish I had thought of that :)
08:02:13 <CraigC> LOL
08:02:52 <lc> NOW morning everyone:p
08:03:05 <Joe> Hi lc
08:03:18 <lc> Dave, you should be at Norris.
08:03:27 <LindaGp> lc, good morning

08:05:02 <Joe> Yep Linda thats the name of the game :)
08:05:43 <LindaGp> 😕
08:06:24 <Joe> If they don't clean the dome soon it will be ruined like the other on is :(
08:06:37 <Joe> one *
08:07:09 <LindaGp> Yeah looks dirty
08:07:47 <Joe> Every morning the Flag raiser should clean it
08:08:37 <Dave from home> Morning lc. I'll be in the park starting Wednesday. I was hoping to catch the next one. If not, I'll be happy to enjoy a trip to the park without a platform sit.
08:09:00 <Barrett> how long are you in the park
08:12:05 <Dave from home> Barrett, I will be there Wed thru Sunday although work may shorten my trip.
08:14:29 <Joe> My question on Bank, has an answer, and it is yes that is Bank, i looked at an in basin post and the camera was luckily pointed that way
08:14:52 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:14:58 <Joe> I'll hace to put it on the panorama

08:35:14 <CraigC> ;)

08:36:24 <LindaGp> CraigC, Who knew?
08:38:57 <LindaGp> Froze

08:45:03 <Joe1> When will they ever return?
08:45:05 <LindaGp> Probably an, but bee was splashing good
08:45:28 <CraigC> I would be at SB
08:45:38 <LindaGp> *sb
08:45:51 <LindaGp> Bee is feeling neglected

09:14:09 <LindaGp> Splash splash
09:14:39 <Joe> splish splash
09:15:22 <LindaGp> Bees takin a bath
09:15:57 <LindaGp> Lion
09:15:57 <Joe> LIon
09:16:28 <ynpvisitor809> Don't leave
09:16:56 <Joe> Hi Jarno
09:17:23 <Joe> oops 809 not 999
09:17:40 <CraigC> whoa
09:17:45 <ynpvisitor999®> did someone summon me?
09:17:53 <CraigC> that was crazy timing
09:17:56 <CraigC> hey Jarno
09:18:04 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
09:18:14 <Joe> yes I was wrong but right:)
09:19:11 <Joe> 1106 Linda
09:20:08 <LindaGp> For what joe?
09:20:25 <Joe> your total :)
09:20:57 <LindaGp> Oh! Yay!
09:21:05 <Joe> :)
09:21:42 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like LS is still ie
09:25:16 <LindaGp> Well the steam is cascading
09:26:12 <ynpvisitor999®> when it erupts, it deserves that name probably more than any feature. Unfortunately it's rarely active :(
09:27:30 <LindaGp> Looks like it would be pretry
09:30:38 <LindaGp> Bee is messing with me again
09:32:17 <Joe> It is waiting for Katie
09:33:03 <LindaGp> 🙄indeed
09:40:11 <LindaGp> I think little bubblers to left
09:42:13 <LindaGp> Don't think I've ever seen a prediction for great fointain
09:42:51 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
09:43:42 <CraigC> depression also, no
09:43:45 <CraigC> ?
09:44:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Depression was actually predicted for a while, but apparantly it has become more erratic over time
09:45:05 <LindaGp> It looks like maybe
09:45:28 <LindaGp> Haven't seen an actual splash though
09:48:29 <LindaGp> I guess it is splashing ill enter
09:49:19 <LindaGp> LC
09:50:04 <Joe> south bubbler
09:50:07 <LindaGp> Bubbler south?
09:50:08 <ynpvisitor999®> some nice south bubbler action
09:50:31 <Joe> that is three of us :)
09:50:47 <LindaGp> I guess we agree 😊
09:51:13 <LindaGp> Dang old faithful ohhhhhh
09:51:48 <ynpvisitor999®> sigh... time for mandatory ego boosting of a specific geyser
09:52:21 <Joe> Old Fathiful is what pays us the big bucks, Linda
09:52:54 <LindaGp> 🙄
09:53:50 <LindaGp> OF
09:56:31 <ynpvisitor999®> well, at least we now have about an hour and a half to watch more interesting geysers :)
09:56:39 <LindaGp> OF on static
09:57:14 <LindaGp> Positivity is a gift
09:57:41 <Joe> Grand is also in the window
09:57:48 <LindaGp> And patience is a virtue 😄
09:58:29 <Joe> no virtue here :)
09:59:25 <LindaGp> Ah calm again, will go down basin I a second
09:59:51 <Joe> Daisy is close also
10:00:10 <LindaGp> I believe Katie has the cam
10:00:25 <Joe> yep 10am
10:00:35 <ynpvisitor999®> MC
10:00:48 <Joe> yep
10:00:52 <LindaGp> I'm out of cam
10:00:56 <Katie> G'morning
10:01:05 <LindaGp> Good morning
10:01:11 <CraigC> hey Katie
10:01:12 <Joe> hi Katie
10:01:13 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Katie
10:01:20 <ynpvisitor999®> south bubbler
10:02:04 <ynpvisitor5> Bee doesnt love me anymore
10:03:53 <Katie> We don't have a GT prediction for Grand. NPS one looks good?
10:04:09 <Katie> Nevermind. I can read.
10:04:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Found this on the internet ([insert warning about stupid people here]) :
10:04:36 <Joe> GT for us is 1105
10:04:57 <ynpvisitor999®> 120m window instead of NPS' 180m one
10:05:34 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor999®, shaking my head
10:05:38 <Katie> I've driven 100 miles today, but I haven't had coffee.
10:07:23 <ynpvisitor1> 999 maybe the warning signs need to show someone boiling alive? (sarcastic)
10:07:38 <Katie> The despised view - but right now it's that or hyper hopping, with so much in window.
10:07:41 <ynpvisitor78> Bubblers look to be active this morning
10:08:50 <ynpvisitor999®> I've found the latter one of the images above:,-110.8502141,3a,75y,347.22h,77.79t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipNkHJQhv44KT3j3V5nqgXa1jYyARxShb9l2YpAW!2e10!3e11!!7i7776!8i3888
10:08:55 <Joe> Grand is at 4h 58 min so within 1/2 hour
10:09:26 <ynpvisitor999®> at are actually two people over at Mirror Pool
10:10:14 <CraigC> neat area
10:10:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy ie
10:10:30 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:10:31 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:10:32 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:10:32 <CraigC> is that indy?
10:10:32 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:10:33 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:10:54 <CraigC> anyone sending text?
10:11:03 <Kevin L™🌵> I can
10:11:18 <Joe> do you see it
10:11:27 <CraigC> maybe tsb is still in UGB
10:11:43 <Joe> yes indy
10:13:08 <ynpvisitor999®> in defense of the tourists, this opening in the woods near Mirror Pool does look very inviting:,-110.8500663,3a,60y,245.55h,74.23t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLZgTcS6Tla4glhjLqTjbPg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
10:13:52 <Katie> Good morning, Betty.
10:13:54 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, I've gone back there, before I found out they had changed the rules
10:14:02 <CraigC> hey Betty
10:14:04 <Betty> HA! What a timing :-) morning everyone
10:14:05 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:14:38 <Kitt> Yay, my first bee in a long time
10:14:45 <Betty> evening Jarno, CraigC, Katie, Kevin L™🌵, Joe, Kitt
10:14:46 <ynpvisitor1> I always wish I could send a message to the people walking past BH when Indy is going off. "Uh, you might want to stick around".
10:15:16 <CraigC> ynpvisitor1, I do that in person :) A couple of days ago Eric was telling people
10:16:03 <Betty> I always do so, last year even several times in German which was very appreciated :-)
10:16:20 <Joe> Hi Kitt, we have not seen you here in quite some time
10:16:22 <ynpvisitor1> I have too. But there's too few of us. :)
10:16:35 <LindaGt> Oh what a surprise Indy 😉
10:16:49 <Betty> hi LindaGt
10:16:57 <LindaGt> Betty, hi
10:17:10 <Joe> Thanks for leaving Linda :)
10:17:16 <LindaGt> Well at least it waited for OF to be done
10:17:19 <Betty> hehe
10:17:24 <LindaGt> Joe, yw
10:17:42 <CraigC> indy is on current static
10:17:49 <ynpvisitor1> Out of curiosity, which one is steaming to the left of Giantess, near the back boardwalk?
10:18:01 <LindaGt> Yeah nice view
10:18:04 <Joe> Pump
10:18:27 <Betty> no, in the middle between pump and giantess
10:18:34 <CraigC> Joe, might be referring to the one in between pump and Giantess
10:18:43 <Betty> teakettle
10:18:57 <CraigC> I am sure I asked that before and have already forgotten
10:19:03 <Joe> Oh idid not see tea kettle
10:19:07 <ynpvisitor1> That area of the TSB map is pretty crowded. Thanks
10:19:33 <Betty> that was Teakettle
10:19:40 <Joe> yes
10:19:43 <CraigC> ynpvisitor1, click on the blue words here and you'll see a map with the feature centered
10:20:58 <Betty> a longer indy
10:21:20 <CraigC> hmmm, teakettle is not on the GT map, forget that
10:22:23 <Katie> Yes, 12 minutes or so. It was IE when I moved the camera to it and it was mentioned.
10:22:27 <CraigC> :bee::bee::bee:
10:22:27 <Betty> BH
10:22:32 <Kitt> yay
10:23:04 <LindaGt> Yay
10:23:20 <LindaGt> Nice!
10:23:26 <CraigC> and Joe made it to YNP!!!!
10:23:47 <LindaGt> Oh good for Joe 😉
10:24:02 <Joe> but i'm back
10:24:11 <CraigC> SuperJoe
10:24:34 <Joe> they call me Flash :)
10:24:50 <LindaGt> 😊
10:24:53 <CraigC> I don;t dare ask about that
10:25:01 <Betty> Flash.... aaahaaaaa
10:25:19 <Joe> oops never thought before posting
10:25:26 <CraigC> Betty, I heard that in Freddie Mercury's voice
10:25:31 <LindaGt> Too late
10:26:09 <ynpvisitor48> Teakettle was deleted wasn't it?
10:26:10 <Lori S> Joe, I often post without thinking first. LOL
10:26:13 <Betty> I sang in Freddy Mercury´s voice :-D
10:27:01 <LindaGt> Hi lori and kitty
10:27:02 <Betty> Lion
10:27:04 <Katie> Lion IE
10:27:30 <Lori S> There is a Deleted Teakettle that appears to be in the Sawmill group. Not knowing anything about that, is there also a "Teakettle" then?
10:27:37 <LindaGt> Nice
10:27:42 <Lori S> Hi Linda
10:27:49 <Betty> that teakettle is not deleted
10:27:52 <CraigC> hey Lori
10:27:56 <ynpvisitor1> hurrah for doubles!
10:27:56 <Joe> we have grand daisy and rside comming up
10:28:01 <Lori S> Hi Craig
10:28:02 <LindaGt> Teakettle steaming g off to eight
10:28:16 <LindaGt> *right
10:28:31 <Katie> Is that Riverside IE?
10:28:46 <Katie> Or, was it?
10:28:47 <Joe> yes
10:29:37 <CraigC> teakettle is in GoY
10:30:01 <Joe> Bank
10:30:02 <Lori S> Craig, OK, I will look that one up. Thx
10:30:48 <Betty> You can read the sign if you zoom in: Teakettle Spring:,-110.8293127,3a,84.3y,115.65h,63.86t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1spxkuBDsNtLxD-NSDHfkkyA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=de
10:30:50 <CraigC> seems like there is a sign for teakettle also, but I don't trust my memory that well to put money on it
10:31:21 <Betty> see above CraigC, Lori S,
10:31:29 <CraigC> Betty, :)
10:31:29 <Lori S> I am not a UGB person, so thanks for the info. :)
10:32:01 <ynpvisitor78> Grotto ie?
10:32:50 <CraigC> Joe, is bank above crested pool, or to the right, straight above the most left bend of the river?
10:33:31 <Betty> Bank is in Daisy area
10:33:43 <ynpvisitor78> Riverside?
10:34:04 <Joe> right edge of clearing right of Daisy on same level
10:34:07 <Betty> yes
10:34:31 <CraigC> Betty, I unknowingly took a photo of bank 2 days ago;
10:34:59 <CraigC> people on FB identified it for me
10:35:07 <Joe> I verified location from in basin post that had the cam pointed in that area
10:35:40 <Betty> yes, that´s it,Craig
10:35:53 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
10:37:02 <Joe> Bank steaming
10:37:06 <Joe> now
10:37:14 <Lori S> A picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to gesyers. :)
10:37:24 <Lori S> *geysers
10:38:04 <CraigC> nailing down the bearings from the cam isn't so easy
10:38:33 <CraigC> in my head, I only visualize where I see it from walking up the path there
10:41:32 <Joe> Bank
10:47:10 <Joe> Grand is at 5h 36 min
11:03:39 <Katie> Hoping for Grand at 11:07 before we have to move to OF
11:07:01 <Joe> Wish we had in basin gazers
11:07:30 <Katie> Yup. I thought it looked like a Turban about 20 minutes ago
11:07:38 <Betty> we Steamboat :-p
11:08:13 <Joe> NPS has not posted E times for anything lately
11:08:16 <Katie> Today is the 1 year anniversary of my Steamboat (arrived at end of water phase)
11:10:07 <ynpvisitor1> Always nice to see basin bison.
11:10:49 <Katie> Moreso when they aren't right next to the bike path (and people)
11:11:21 <Joe> June 11 is my anniversary of leaving 6 hours before and arriving 6 hours after eruption ;)
11:13:15 <Joe> Bulger
11:16:02 <Joe> Grotto or Rocket
11:17:45 <Joe> Old tardy
11:18:18 <Joe> of window
11:18:24 <Katie> darn it
11:18:35 <Joe> stink!
11:18:59 <Betty> :drizzle:
11:19:00 <Katie> BIG spider
11:19:09 <Joe> yes
11:19:19 <Betty> ugh
11:24:54 <Dave from home> Steamboat logger is broken already
11:26:10 <Dave from home> Nice closeup of OF start
11:26:28 <ynpvisitor999®> yep... I hoped it was a caching issue, so I let the logger for what it was
11:26:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Nuphar Lake one is probably out of batteries
11:37:22 <Betty> when did OF start?
11:37:52 <Katie> 11:25
11:38:02 <Betty> thx
11:39:35 <Joe> Grand
11:39:35 <Betty> grand
11:39:36 <LindaGt> Igrand
11:39:48 <Betty> yougrand?
11:40:13 <LindaGt> .😊 I think so
11:40:25 <Betty> nice
11:40:37 <Dave from home> Hi Betty
11:40:45 <LindaGt> I couldnt get it typed lol
11:40:45 <Betty> or Hugh Grant?
11:40:53 <Betty> hi Dave
11:41:04 <LindaGt> Betty, oh not so much
11:41:10 <Betty> why from home?
11:41:29 <Betty> oh, Mem day
11:42:17 <Betty> happy Memorial Day to all of you
11:42:19 <Dave from home> Yep. working a bit from home today, getting packed for trip this week.
11:42:25 <Dave from home> Thanks Betty

11:47:48 <Dave from home> posting times are 15 seconds off from time on upper right of this page
11:48:41 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
11:49:30 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be done completely
11:49:37 <Dave from home> yep
11:50:05 <ynpvisitor999®> 6½h for a <10m 1-burst Grand
11:52:13 <Joe> I wish interp would get and post Etimes
12:28:49 <Joe> Daisy is approaching 14 hours that is a muitiple of 2h 20min average so soon ??
12:29:40 <Dave from home> Nopthing like a 6 tuple interval
12:31:24 <ynpvisitor1> Maybe it's Splendid's turn.
12:32:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet that'd be a very welcome surprise
12:32:32 <Joe> I'll bet Eric, Graham andothers are getting steamboatites about now
12:33:00 <CraigC> LOL
12:33:11 <CraigC> I'd trade places
12:33:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm disliking the rate at which SB lengthens its intervals
12:33:49 <Joe> ME too Craig :)
12:34:18 <Joe> BANK
12:35:05 <CraigC> I forgot to trim those trees in the way of Grotto while I was there
12:35:31 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
12:35:41 <Joe> Well...shame on you
12:35:45 <Dave from home> Did Grotto just start or have I been distracted by work?
12:36:02 <Joe> just start
12:36:10 <CraigC> something else just started there
12:36:30 <CraigC> arent there 3 distinct steam sources there now?
12:36:54 <CraigC> grotto and bojou, what is in between?
12:36:57 <CraigC> bijou
12:37:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Craig, you should drop something that's on fire roughly there during a heavy thunderstorm. Don't think it'd be noticed all too quickly :)
12:37:13 <CraigC> LOL
12:37:13 <Dave from home> Could be one of the fountains
12:37:43 <CraigC> I've never witnessed any of those in person
12:37:46 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't recommend it, though, but it'd be a sneaky solution to our tree problem
12:38:44 <Dave from home> How about a camera on a wire like at NFL games?
12:39:34 <CraigC> how do fans at the games like those cameras on wires?
12:39:46 <Joe> DAISY
12:40:07 <Joe> 14h 1 min
12:40:21 <CraigC> good call, Joe
12:40:30 <Joe> tks
12:40:30 <Dave from home> I'm not sure. Only game I went to I was so far away no wire was visible:)
12:40:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe, why haven't you started a prediction service yet? :P
12:40:45 <Dave from home> Joe, you were off by a
12:41:12 <CraigC> I've only been to one NFL game, Dallas at Denver, Tom Landry was still coach, and I was still a fan. :)
12:41:15 <Joe> if i did everything then would change :)
12:43:19 <Joe> Averages over long periods can make it like you know what you are doing...not :)
12:49:04 <Joe> OF indicator is filling
12:56:34 <Dave from home> My Steamboatometer is telling me in the next 180 minutes, we shall see #50.
12:57:29 <Joe> Great!!!
12:58:58 <Dave from home> It was made by Doc Emmitt Brown; you may have heard of him
12:59:27 <Joe> no?
12:59:50 <Joe> Hi again Betty
13:00:14 <CraigC> Back to the Future
13:00:29 <Dave from home>
13:00:34 <Betty> thx
13:01:06 <Dave from home> Better known as making the world's first flux capacitor and ice machine
13:01:40 <Joe> Ah spaced that one out for sure:)
13:02:17 <Dave from home> It's been a few years since he produced anything:)
13:09:01 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Sam
13:09:14 <Sam> Hey Jarno
13:09:50 <CraigC> hey Sam
13:09:51 <Sam> It’d sure be nice to see the sun again!
13:10:10 <Sam> Hi Craig. Looked like a successful gazing day yesterday!
13:10:43 <Sam> Or I guess that was two days ago now
13:10:56 <CraigC> 2 days ago, yeah, had a blast, even sitting for 4 or 5 hours NOT seeing SB
13:11:45 <CraigC> it was really cool hanging out with Eric at Grand and Beehive, he showed me the Waves-on-Grand
13:12:06 <CraigC> OF
13:12:15 <Sam> Excellent! Glad to hear you had a great time
13:12:32 <CraigC> hey Cooper
13:12:42 <Cooper> hi CraigC
13:13:11 <ynpvisitor999®> would be nice to know how tall OF needs to go in order to reach the treeptops of the distant ridgeline
13:15:32 <Katie> That was some nice late-in-eruption surging
13:17:37 <Joe> bbl
13:18:48 <Sam> See ya joe
13:19:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Can we have the cam on Castle for some time? To me it looks like Lion already went, based on how quiet it is
13:20:12 <Sam> Or is it done for this series?
13:20:42 <ynpvisitor999®> that's another possibility, but then it'd be putting out a lot more steam and try hard every so often
13:20:56 <Katie> I wish we knew if Lion had erupted while we were on OF.
13:21:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle should be fairly soon. It'd surprise me if it hasn't gone in the next 15 minutes, let alone 30
13:25:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
13:25:36 <Dave from home> CraigC, I'm glad you met Eric. Who else did you meet?
13:26:13 <Dave from home> There she blows
14:03:29 <CraigC> Dave from home, I met Clark at SB, Kyle and Pat at Fountain and again at SB
14:03:43 <CraigC> Bill J and his wife Emily
14:03:54 <CraigC> TSb at Grand and BH
14:04:04 <CraigC> Art at SB
14:04:11 <CraigC> Jim H at SB
14:04:48 <CraigC> I think there was a Matt
14:05:23 <CraigC> Bill and Carol were at SB again
14:14:43 <Betty> time to head out. Enjoy the rest of Memorial day. night all
14:14:51 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
14:15:18 <CraigC> cya Betty
14:15:31 <Dave from home> Nice, Craig
14:15:35 <Dave from home> Bye Betty
14:16:09 <CraigC> also Mike F at Riverside, and Lynn S's granddaughter
14:16:57 <CraigC> no bad experiences with any of those interactions :)
14:23:22 <Dave from home> :)
14:39:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought you were going to the park Dave.
14:40:38 <Dave from home> Wedneday
14:41:07 <Kevin L™🌵> So SB goes tomorrow night?
14:42:08 <Dave from home> It better go today
14:43:38 <Dave from home> Did you enjoy your day of racing?
14:44:38 <Kevin L™🌵> It was long but fun. 14h20m of racing.
14:49:18 <CraigC> OF
14:53:21 <ynpvisitor84> Kevin, see the news about the boulders closing the road in Colorado?
14:53:40 <Cooper> which road?
14:53:44 <Cooper> I 70?
14:53:59 <ynpvisitor84> Not the size of rock you could shift with your car.
14:54:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't see that one but it does happen a lot there.
14:54:22 <CraigC> it was huge, how many tons?
14:55:25 <Katie> Daisy
14:55:48 <Dave from home> ..
14:55:55 <ynpvisitor84> 2.5
14:55:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Cortez & Telluride?
14:56:00 <ynpvisitor84>
14:56:23 <ynpvisitor84> million pounds
14:56:36 <Cooper> ynpvisitor84, Thx, I live in Colorado Sprigns and was heading out there, so now I know to go around
14:56:40 <CraigC> The enormous 2.5-million-pound rock
14:56:46 <ynpvisitor84> They should have lots of rock for road repair.
14:57:20 <Dave from home> wow
14:57:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I think that the black one will be staying where it landed. Good thing it missed cars.
14:58:08 <ynpvisitor84>
14:58:30 <ynpvisitor84> Video of the blast if you search.
14:58:52 <Cooper> post the link
14:59:04 <Cooper> if you can
14:59:05 <ynpvisitor84> I think they used 2 m-80's
15:05:13 <ynpvisitor84> See if this works.
15:05:39 <Cooper> thanks
15:10:03 <ynpvisitor84> Hope it was good, will not play on my computer.
15:10:18 <Cooper> it was cool
15:10:33 <Cooper> but not very long, and just shows the explosion
15:10:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty impressive.
15:11:16 <ynpvisitor84> I bet Kevin would come out of retirement to do something like that.
15:12:04 <ynpvisitor84> In Utah, they just have dynamite trucks explode and take out roads. Not sure what Nevada does.
15:12:30 <CraigC> ynpvisitor84, you in Utah?
15:12:37 <ynpvisitor84> Nope
15:12:41 <Cooper> ynpvisitor84, maybe this will work
15:13:27 <ynpvisitor84> I just remember reading about a truck accident on a road we had gone over before the blast.
15:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I had some projects where we used dynamite. We had to use dynamite to dig a half mile of trench for a pipe at the Flamingo Road I-15 Interchange.
15:15:34 <Cooper> Kevin L™🌵, What is your job?
15:15:46 <ynpvisitor84> Chicken feeder
15:15:52 <CraigC> LOL
15:15:56 <Dave from home> :D:D
15:16:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Running the cam!
15:16:37 <ynpvisitor84> I was surprised they were that close. Looks like about 2 m-80's. Would have expected more boom for that big of a rock. Must have drilled deep holes.
15:16:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I was a utility engineer for the Department of Transportation
15:16:54 <CraigC> bbl folks
15:17:07 <Cooper> Nice
15:17:47 <ynpvisitor84> Well, out to see if I can mow before it rains again.
15:17:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I am sure the did holes in it 84. Probably a limited load too. Don't want to send things flying too far.
15:18:25 <ynpvisitor84> The farther they fly, the less you need to move.
15:18:28 <Dave from home> Time to be nore productive as well. Goodnight all
15:18:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Good night Dave. You packing?
15:19:06 <Dave from home> No, doing some planning for the 6 night YNP extended family trip at the end of june
15:21:10 <ynpvisitor48> I just remembered. Oregon would not blow up a boulder that size. They are gun shy after the whale incident. They would just leave the road closed or reroute it for a few million dollars.
15:21:34 <ynpvisitor48> Or turn it into a bike path.
15:21:57 <Kevin L™🌵> That whale was funny.
15:21:58 <ynpvisitor48> That is more likely.
15:23:10 <ynpvisitor48> Not if you had to explain to the insurance company how your car got smashed by 500 pounds of rotten whale blubber.
15:23:58 <ynpvisitor48> It was funny, they did not choose well.
15:28:23 <Kevin L™🌵> We had a pretty big boulder fall off this cliff and barely missed the road.
15:30:24 <ynpvisitor999®> were that two spiders?
15:36:09 <Joe> Hi everybody
15:38:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Joe
15:39:10 <Joe> I have taken my nap and am ready for Grahams shift
15:39:21 <Joe> AURUM
15:39:33 <Joe> >
15:39:35 <Joe> .
15:39:36 <Cooper> :D
15:39:37 <Joe> .
15:40:02 <Joe> nice one too
15:40:26 <Katie> I was just going to type asking if you wanted to take over since your nap is done, Joe, but I got distracted.
15:40:34 <Katie> by Aurum. :)
15:40:59 <LindaG> Yay aurum!
15:41:03 <Katie> But I do have company coming over shortly and could use a few minutes to vacuum if you are ready.
15:41:03 <Joe> I can take it whenever you want
15:41:21 <Joe> OK I'll take it
15:41:23 <Katie> It's all yours, then.
15:41:32 <Kevin L™🌵> That was fun
15:42:05 <LindaG> Yup
15:42:08 <Joe> Are you on in mobile
15:42:22 <Joe> got it
15:42:26 <Katie> I was
15:42:30 <LindaG> Just sat down and saw it foing, perfect timing
15:42:41 <LindaG> *going
15:44:12 <Joe> Aurum went in as 1439 but i changed it :)
15:47:39 <Joe> LC
15:48:29 <Joe> Got it Linda
16:05:33 <Joe> Bulger
16:11:05 <Katie> Nice view. *giggles*
16:11:23 <Joe> :)
16:12:32 <Katie> Where's that dome wiper we were supposed to get with this new cam?
16:13:07 <Katie> (yes, I vacuumed but husband missed some spots dusting, so I'm just 'on break' for a couple minutes)
16:13:23 <Joe> :):)
16:34:42 <Joe> StrpH got Riverside
16:34:51 <Joe> StepH
16:36:40 <Joe> OF
16:52:31 <ynpvisitor8> Another prediction gone wrong song
16:53:26 <ynpvisitor40> ?
16:55:11 <ynpvisitor8> Thought steamboat would go this afternoon
16:55:44 <ynpvisitor40> Oh, yeah it might be a while yet
16:56:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope not
16:56:12 <ynpvisitor40> Cold and now wet sit today
16:57:38 <ynpvisitor40> 9 days would not be so unusual. To think it would keep up with short intervals makes no sense really
16:58:48 <ynpvisitor999®> true, but I hoped it'd stay below 7 days for a bit longer, like it did last year in September
16:58:49 <ynpvisitor40> 7 days now
16:59:34 <ynpvisitor40> I would venture it has to become erratic and then stop before too long
16:59:55 <ynpvisitor8> I was hoping graham and Eric wouldn’t have to invest more than 2 days there
16:59:57 <ynpvisitor40> This has been an incredible run
17:00:29 <ynpvisitor40> We’ll see how much more time they put to it
17:01:25 <ynpvisitor40> I thought Eric was focusing on hiking
17:07:05 <Joe> Bulger
17:09:54 <Joe> Daisy
17:10:05 <Joe> nope
17:10:31 <Joe> not even close :)
17:14:57 <Joe> Grand
17:19:50 <ynpvisitor100> Nice
17:22:54 <Joe> 8min
17:24:25 <Joe> 2nd
17:25:58 <Cooper> Hope we get a 3rd
17:37:18 <Cooper> YAY SB went
17:37:39 <Cooper> Wonder how long the water phase will be this time
17:38:46 <ynpvisitor40> Wonder if anyone was there
17:39:21 <Joe> DAISY
17:40:10 <Joe> 2h 43 min
17:41:39 <Cooper> BBL
18:18:25 <LindaG> Steamboat again!
18:18:45 <LindaG> Hope Kat got to see it qm2ndntime
18:18:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I told Dave to go.
18:19:06 <LindaG> *a second time
18:19:08 <Joe> Yes # 50!!
18:19:58 <LindaG> I wonder if Eric went
18:20:31 <Kevin L™🌵> I hope so.
18:21:27 <Lori S> Go SB!
18:21:46 <LindaG> 😊
18:22:29 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
18:22:54 <Lori S> Hi Linda. Sorry I just keep popping in. Busy at work today.
18:23:19 <Lori S> Hope Eric and Dave are there.
18:27:27 <LindaG> Doubt davenis ut good chance Eric is there
18:27:46 <LindaG> And my typing hasnt changed
18:28:02 <Lori S> LOL
18:28:12 <LindaG> Doubt Dave is there. Good chance Eric is there
18:28:13 <Lori S> on the typing, not Dave
18:28:35 <LindaG> 😆
18:28:44 <Lori S> Has Eric seen it before? I don't recall.
18:29:17 <LindaG> I dont know
18:33:28 <Joe> I did not know we could do BH and OF
18:33:51 <LindaG> Oh wow, never tried
18:34:12 <Joe> Something to remember for BH and OF at same time
18:34:19 <LindaG> Someone suggested it the othernday
18:34:43 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder if they did an adjustment. We couldn't before.
18:34:56 <Joe> well...there it is :) now we know!
18:35:23 <Lori S> Yay!
18:35:28 <Kevin L™🌵> We tried it when the cam first came on line and it didn't work.
18:36:06 <LindaG> For some reason i thought we could just get OF and dome
18:37:21 <LindaG> That's weird
18:37:28 <Joe> I never tried zooming all the way out in this position before
18:37:51 <Joe> I'll put that in the memory bank :)
18:38:21 <ynpvisitor92> Eric did see SB last May
18:39:02 <Lori S> :thumbsup: on Eric
18:39:37 <ynpvisitor92> OF and BH in same view will make Eric (and others) VERY happy
18:40:05 <LindaG> Oh that's right he was going because he was bringing his survival stuff in case he got left there
18:40:35 <LindaG> Joe is roaming tonight
18:42:02 <Lori S> Hi Craig!
18:42:22 <Joe> Hi Craig
18:43:07 <LindaG> Hey Craig is back
18:43:09 <Joe> BH to OF is a little hard to get nut with practice...
18:43:20 <Joe> But *
18:43:39 <ynpvisitor92> You guys will perfect it!!
18:44:00 <Joe> We need this!!
18:44:28 <LindaG> Can you move it up and get rid of asphalt?
18:45:11 <LindaG> Yay
18:45:37 <LindaG> The higher it goes the less we see bee
18:46:44 <LindaG> Definitely see more bee this way
18:47:10 <Joe> nice to have this
18:47:12 <LindaG> But I think it will cut off top
18:47:19 <Lori S> Everyone have a great night.
18:47:29 <LindaG> Lori S, good night

19:15:53 <Joe> -0.4
