05:25:02 <Joe> Hi Craig
05:30:50 <CraigC> mornn, Joe, how's it going?
05:33:55 <CraigC> 11+ hour interval on Fountain. Graham, Dave and Eric there, and some others
05:44:38 <LindaG> Love OF in the morning
05:44:54 <LindaG> Good morning
05:45:09 <CraigC> hey Linda
05:45:15 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
05:55:47 <LindaG> Just watched Aurum on Gosa rerun, definitely not 3 minutes, 17:20:26 to 17:21:44. Real nice aurum
06:11:10 <CraigC> LindaG, yep, under minute and a half
06:15:19 <Betty> morning all
06:15:48 <CraigC> I sent a message to Lynn on the Aurum entry
06:15:52 <CraigC> hey Betty
06:16:03 <Betty> hi CraigC
06:16:20 <Betty> bet that is Graam heading towards BH
06:16:28 <Betty> Graham*
06:16:54 <CraigC> see if he enteres anemone
06:18:03 <LindaG> 👍
06:18:23 <Betty> hi LindaG
06:18:23 <LindaG> Betty, hi
06:19:15 <Betty> it´s him if he stops at NG ;-)
06:21:15 <LindaG> CraigC, in also entered the time on my post
06:21:19 <Joe> Breakfast buffet opens at 0630, I'll bet that is where Graham is
06:21:34 <LindaG> Joe, hi
06:21:40 <CraigC> where do they have the buffet?
06:24:00 <Joe> Ithink both the Inn and OFL
06:24:21 <Betty> hi Joe
06:24:41 <Joe> Hi Betty and Linda
06:25:07 <Betty> bubblers?
06:25:24 <Betty> not anymore if they went
06:27:51 <Betty> I love this peaceful early morning view over steamy geyser hill :-)
06:28:23 <Joe> Bee will erupt after 1000 it likes Linda
06:28:40 <Betty> :-D
06:28:43 <LindaG> 😊
06:29:00 <LindaG> And I like bee!
06:30:33 <CraigC> MC might be erupting
06:31:10 <Betty> think it is only steam
06:32:29 <Betty> BA is
06:32:35 <Betty> was
06:32:42 <Betty> :i::i:
06:33:16 <CraigC> I saw it, but didn;t know if it was big or little
06:36:09 <CraigC> is improbable the one putting out the most steam at that turn in the boardwalk?
06:36:21 <LindaG> Betty, take a look at that aurum last night on gosa, it was special
06:36:44 <Betty> I already did. a good one
06:36:57 <Betty> yes, Craig
06:37:04 <LindaG> It was nice.
07:18:45 <Betty> OF

07:54:24 <Betty> hi Chancellor
08:04:10 <CraigC> TSB at Biscuit
08:10:08 <CraigC> Bank: "It presently erupts every 1 to 3 minutes. The play is a series of splashes over the course of a few seconds. Most eruptions are minor and only 4 to 6 feet high." GoY
08:10:39 <Joe> Thanks Craig
08:11:32 <CraigC> So I wasn;t missing anything, apparently. Seemed pretty inconsequential, though it is located in a picturesque location
08:12:26 <CraigC> here is a pic I took;
08:12:35 <CraigC> https://imgur.com/dSLklMS

08:59:01 <Joe> yes
08:59:22 <Betty> hi Purple Mountain and fishynp
09:12:13 <Katie(8)> good morning
09:14:29 <CraigC> hey Katie
09:15:16 <Purple Mountain> "purple mountain majesties" is from the famous song "Americium the Beautiful", of course
09:15:39 <Purple Mountain> alternate lyrics are "purple mountains majesties"
09:15:43 <Betty> hi Katie
09:16:09 <ynpvisitor68> Purple Mountain, have you hiked it?
09:16:12 <Betty> so it´s you, Jimbo?
09:16:53 <Joe> no I did not quit!
09:17:09 <ynpvisitor68> I heard a FRS radio call for Fountain when I was up there once
09:22:28 <CraigC> VEC radio'd that Fountain had erupted when I was there last week
09:23:27 <CraigC> just got off the phone with my daughter, she is in West and will be at UGB within a couple of hours
09:23:40 <ynpvisitor68> I figured from top of purple mtn we couldn't make it :(
09:25:07 <Purple Mountain> I am Jimbo - where's the real Purple Mountain?
09:25:25 <CraigC> hey Jimbo
09:25:49 <ynpvisitor68> madison junction area
09:25:59 <Purple Mountain> Yup, just mapped it.
09:26:05 <CraigC> me too ;)
09:26:15 <CraigC> hey Kevin
09:26:23 <Purple Mountain> I was unaware Yellowstone has a Purple Mountain - so much the better!
09:26:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
09:28:57 <Purple Mountain> Terrace Spring is at the base of Purple Mountain: here's a panorama. I think Purple Mountain is the cone-shaped feature. https://www.google.com/maps/@44.6501459,-110.8465476,3a,75y,315.03h,110.75t/data=!3m11!1e1!3m9!1sAF1QipOPNXL01zeYa-jeNjfjoV5dBmitbE3bmYwmsLLj!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipOPNXL01zeYa-jeNjfjoV5dBmitbE3bmYwmsLLj%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya298.5426-r
09:30:32 <Purple Mountain> And here's a view from the top: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Purple+Mountain/@44.6671545,-110.8621569,3a,75y,90t/data=!3m8!1e2!3m6!1sAF1QipPMSxV2YtIxlshZbt6vKUZtL6WQU35Q5x0FvY00!2e10!3e12!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipPMSxV2YtIxlshZbt6vKUZtL6WQU35Q5x0FvY00%3Dw360-h239-k-no!7i2048!8i1365!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351c466b6f55ca5:0x2322fedcaec30213!8m2!3d44.6671573!4d-110.8621359!5m1!1
09:30:58 <Purple Mountain> oops, that didn't work.
09:31:20 <fishynp> Seismic Station YPM stands for Purple Mountain as it sits on Purple Mountain.
09:31:43 <Purple Mountain> Cool. This link will work. https://goo.gl/maps/KhBShQ7bzwnbNtEs9

10:21:38 <LindaG> That is a cool cloud
10:21:48 <Betty> funny
10:22:42 <LindaG> Looks like steam from eruption doesn't? Is excelsior over there?
10:31:06 <Sam> Did anyone go back and watch the GOSA video to catch yesterday's 17:20 Aurum?
10:31:16 <Cooper;> Nope
10:31:30 <Cooper;> but I am now

10:33:41 <Cooper;> ok
10:33:45 <LindaG> I put in my post
10:33:55 <LindaG> It's worth looking at on gosa
10:35:24 <Sam> Just watched. Pretty cool
10:35:46 <Cooper;> Aurum in basin
10:36:04 <Sam> OF looked like a medium?
10:36:11 <LindaG> We missed aurum☹
10:36:34 <LindaG> Sam, mean a short?
10:36:58 <Sam> Yeah.
10:37:21 <LindaG> Think so I can change mine so I don't miss next one
10:37:52 <Sam> Cruddy thing about the cam being donw
10:37:54 <Sam> down*
10:38:36 <Sam> NPS prediction has it as a long, so don't change it
10:38:42 <LindaG> Tries the patience for sure
10:39:42 <LindaG> Lion
10:40:45 <LindaG> Good field observations
10:42:59 <Betty> bummer, we missed Aurum
10:43:33 <Sam> Daisy relatively soon

10:54:28 <LindaG> Lost cam sigh
10:55:06 <LindaG> And it's back
10:55:36 <LindaG> But frozen
10:59:26 <Casey> Does anyone know the status of access to back country thermal areas? If I can make it to the park this year I'm considering hiking back to the Shoshone Geyser Basin.
10:59:49 <Cooper;> sorry I dont :(
11:00:31 <LindaG> No i dont
11:00:52 <LindaG> It's up for moment
11:01:38 <Casey> Thanks anyway. Hopefully someone will hop on that knows something.
11:02:40 <lc> hey everyone
11:02:52 <lc> no cam?
11:03:09 <LindaG> Ita been up and down all morning
11:03:18 <LindaG> Refresh up now
11:03:42 <LindaG> lc, here's your reminder to look at Gosa for Aurum last night
11:03:49 <lc> got it thanks
11:04:08 <LindaG> 🙂
11:04:09 <lc> :p I did
11:04:31 <LindaG> Hehe
11:04:50 <LindaG> Daisy
11:05:52 <lc> the reason it looked taller (I think) the wind.
11:06:32 <LindaG> Ok. What I noticed was no steam so might be same. Wind blowing steam away
11:06:49 <lc> best I could time it, was about 1 min 19 sec.
11:07:15 <LindaG> Yes, definitely not 3 min
11:08:02 <LindaG> Dare insaynthe cam seems to have healed, for the moment anyway
11:08:56 <LindaG> Splashes on bee
11:09:11 <LindaG> No bubblers though
11:10:16 <lc> is Dave and Eric hiking today?
11:10:53 <LindaG> I'm not sure
11:12:19 <LindaG> Crowd building at bee
11:19:36 <LindaG> BIG A
11:21:25 <CraigC> Lynn changed his Aurum duration, I chatted with him this morning
11:23:36 <LindaG> 👍
11:23:40 <LindaG> Thx
11:24:02 <LindaG> Well we had a good run of about 20 minutes on cam
11:25:19 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
11:25:39 <CraigC> Stephen G was out in West Thumb area
11:25:43 <CraigC> hey Jarno
11:25:51 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, good morning
11:26:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Is het niet avond voor jou?
11:27:35 <ynpvisitor999®> 't Is inderdaad avond voor mij
11:27:51 <Cooper;> ynpvisitor999®, what language is that?
11:27:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Dutch
11:28:30 <Cooper;> So you live in the Netherlands?
11:28:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Will's in the UGB
11:28:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Cooper, yes
11:28:58 <Cooper;> nice
11:29:08 <LindaG> How do you say cam is down in dutch?
11:29:46 <CraigC> FUBAR
11:29:58 <ynpvisitor999®> not quite, Craig, but good try :P
11:30:06 <CraigC> ;)
11:30:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Betty would say kaput!
11:30:48 <LindaG> Cam Is kaput!
11:31:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Linda, it'd be along the lines of 'Camera offline' or 'Camera werkt niet'. 'Camera kapot' would be for a broken cam
11:32:08 <LindaG>
11:32:16 <lc> well, back to my book.
11:32:19 <lc> bbl
11:32:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Deze stomme camera werkt normaal, met andere woorden het bevriest en maakt ons gek
11:33:00 <Cooper;> Kevin L™🌵, do you speak dutch, or you using some form of translator
11:33:14 <ynpvisitor999®> 'werkt normaal' is 'works as intended'. Don't think that's what you meant...
11:33:18 <Kevin L™🌵> A translator.
11:33:26 <Cooper;> okay
11:34:28 <Cooper;> Ik denk dat Old Faithful een lange laatste tijd was, vanwege NPS
11:34:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I did learn enough German to get a bratwurst and basic directions.
11:35:10 <CraigC> we just missed an improbable burst
11:35:22 <Kevin L™🌵> And you are right dg, the translator did work as intended either!
11:35:52 <ynpvisitor999®> uhmm... That sentence is just a mess of words put next to each other, Cooper
11:36:15 <CraigC> how do you say LMAO in Dutch
11:36:24 <Cooper;> So google translate messed up
11:36:41 <LindaG> I looks like rain
11:37:02 <CraigC> mine was rhetorical
11:37:13 <Cooper;> I wrote I think that Old Faithful was a long last time, into Google Translate, BAD GOOGLE
11:37:31 <Kevin L™🌵> It is like some of those instructions you get from China that they used Google translate. They can be funny.
11:37:48 <CraigC> all your base are belong to us
11:37:57 <LindaG> Cooper;, looks like it
11:38:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Kevin, like this one: https://i.imgur.com/qsjuwW4.jpg
11:38:38 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, hahahaha
11:38:44 <Kevin L™🌵> If you turn on closed caption on TV on some of the old shows the translations there can be funnier than the shows.
11:38:57 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet
11:39:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Those are good Craig
11:40:30 <ynpvisitor999®> This one's even better: https://preview.redd.it/z5h42kxw6k131.jpg?width=960&crop=smart&auto=webp&s=2185e980f7b0890c7b798c55d01b34f5bfc07c81
11:41:04 <Kevin L™🌵> My favorite closed caption on TV was a Mannix where a guy wanted to mail a letter in an office. They told him "There is a mail chute out in the hall". Closed caption was "There is a male shootout in the hall."
11:41:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet that raised some eyebrows
11:41:52 <LindaG> Froze
11:43:35 <LindaG> Back
11:45:42 <KittyM> it's down for me
11:46:06 <LindaG> Went down again
11:46:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy may go soon. South Bubbler 1144
11:46:16 <Cooper;> South Bubbler
11:46:18 <LindaG> Up and down all day
11:46:41 <LindaG> Couldn't move if I wanted to
11:48:57 <LindaG> Why fantastic so bright?
11:49:07 <LindaG> *static
11:49:58 <Kevin L™🌵> You using Google translate too Linda?
11:50:18 <LindaG> Hehe yeah and it doesn't work
11:50:18 <CraigC> LOL
11:50:35 <LindaG> Kicked out of cam trying to get back in
11:52:05 <LindaG> Not responding sigh
11:53:53 <LindaG> Restarting tablet
11:56:03 <LindaG> Not letting me sign in. I'll keep trying
12:00:34 <ynpvisitor26> Water in Indy
12:00:39 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:00:42 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:00:42 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:00:43 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:00:44 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:00:47 <ynpvisitor26> .
12:01:10 <CraigC> hey Art
12:01:18 <Art> Indy
12:01:20 <Cooper;> ynpvisitor26, How do you know?
12:01:30 <CraigC> no stream
12:01:48 <Purple Mountain> This is quite annoying
12:02:00 <Art> CraigC, hello
12:02:00 <CraigC> cam has been struggling all week, and more
12:02:22 <Art> Oh is cam down?
12:02:25 <CraigC> Art, are you going to be in UGB all day?
12:02:42 <CraigC> my daughter will be there at some point
12:03:31 <Art> We’re heading out after bee for lunch and then heading up to roosevelt
12:03:51 <CraigC> Art, cool, you shoudl see black bears that way
12:05:49 <Cooper;> cam up
12:05:56 <Cooper;> can we go OF to BH view
12:06:30 <LindaG> I did but cam froze again
12:06:39 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
12:07:39 <LindaG> OF still hasn't gone? Yikes
12:08:00 <Cooper;> LindaG, maybe a little more left, if you are allowed too
12:08:27 <LindaG> Cam frozen
12:08:48 <LindaG> I don't even think they want this view
12:09:18 <ynpvisitor999®> That's nonsense. OF is still in view, so they shouldn't complain
12:09:21 <Cooper;> oops
12:09:57 <ynpvisitor999®> and cam down
12:10:08 <CraigC> moot when the stream is F'd
12:10:11 <LindaG> Well froze again
12:10:33 <LindaG> That's it
12:10:43 <LindaG> OF
12:10:54 <LindaG> AND SOWN
12:11:06 <LindaG> *Down
12:12:53 <LindaG> How can of be long after 2 minutes
12:13:43 <ynpvisitor999®> udo usually enters OF as a long when he catches it, even at the start of an eruption
12:14:25 <LindaG> Well at least someone is watching
12:14:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Also, can they relocate the router already? Placing it next to a microwave is a no-go, as has been demonstrated repeatedly by now
12:15:10 <LindaG> How do we know its by a microwave?
12:15:12 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, is that really the conflict?
12:15:31 <CraigC> that is hilarious if that is the issue
12:15:39 <ynpvisitor999®> no idea, but it's probably the most likely one
12:15:48 <ynpvisitor999®> or so I heard
12:16:24 <LindaG> That would be a lot of cooking really. This will keep going until end of work day.
12:16:49 <Purple Mountain> BH on static
12:16:56 <CraigC> nice
12:17:02 <ynpvisitor999®> We should ask Micah whether or not he knows where the webcam router is located
12:17:31 <CraigC> up
12:17:41 <CraigC> down
12:17:44 <LindaG> Beehive ip
12:17:46 <Purple Mountain> a few seconds of BH
12:17:57 <LindaG> Darn froze on beehive
12:18:07 <CraigC> good place to be frozen
12:18:37 <LindaG> Nice on static
12:19:31 <LindaG> Another 2 seconds
12:20:03 <ynpvisitor118> Router is in the Ranger station.
12:20:33 <ynpvisitor118> Per past info posted a few times, and my bear trap memory for things like that.
12:21:05 <LindaG> My screen is frozen on end of beehive
12:21:52 <CraigC> where is the ranger station
12:22:08 <LindaG> Too little too late
12:22:33 <LindaG> Up
12:23:07 <LindaG> Down
12:25:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Craig, supposedly it's the building at the bottom of this Maps view: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.4575702,-110.8314725,293m/data=!3m1!1e3
12:26:24 <CraigC> thanks
12:30:12 <LindaG> This cam juat isn't responding. I'll keep trying but it's such a waste.
12:39:32 <LindaG> Up
12:39:45 <LindaG> Look while you can
12:40:04 <LindaG> Uh you missed it lol
12:40:56 <LindaG> Back
12:41:22 <LindaG> Oh my NOT
12:48:00 <LindaG> AT THIS rate the cam is down for count. It was suggested if I can access just put on OF. I think later in day it will heal.
12:49:32 <LindaG> Ill come back later and see if it heales
12:50:59 <Cooper;> See you all later
13:17:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy due soon, as well as Castle. Might be worth panning to the Myriads, as we now have a person observing that group
13:18:03 <ynpvisitor999®> cam seems to be stable now
13:19:00 <Cooper;> the cam seems to be fine now, who has it?
13:19:11 <ynpvisitor999®> apparantly 6-foot burst from something far right of North Sister
13:20:24 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's Linda's shift, but due to constant cam outages she has given up on controlling it. At least that's what I caught
13:20:50 <Cooper;> thx
13:21:02 <Cooper;> I wonder how SB is
13:21:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Cooper: https://geysertimes.org/note.php?id=11448
13:21:47 <ynpvisitor999®> from this morning, but I don't think SB has changed that much since that note
13:21:52 <Cooper;> Thx, did not see that
13:27:44 <LindaG> Hi, after OF I will try again
13:28:20 <ynpvisitor999®> We have a few people in-basin. One of them is at Castle, one at Grotto, one at the Myriads and one at the Hill
13:28:31 <Cooper;> LindaG, since you gave up the cam has healed
13:29:26 <ynpvisitor999®> A pan to the Myriads would be worth it I think. We have a person there and there is some interesting activity :)
13:29:37 <LindaG> Yes I saw that. Ive been having discussions with the bosses.
13:31:14 <ynpvisitor999®> is that udo in front of the car?
13:32:14 <ynpvisitor67> I have to stay close to home so to speak
13:35:09 <LindaGp> Frozen
13:35:34 <Cooper;> Hmmm, very interesting
13:35:35 <ynpvisitor999®> let the games begin I s'pose
13:35:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Drove me nuts yesterday
13:38:32 <LindaGp> Cam dropped
13:47:53 <CraigC> bear note, at Madison Campground
13:49:04 <LindaGp> I am leaving on old faithful. Sorry
13:49:39 <CraigC> pretty sure my daughter is in that crowd somewhere
13:50:03 <LindaGp> Ols faithful?
13:50:33 <CraigC> yes, they were by the lodge when she called me
13:50:51 <LindaGp> Nice
13:51:18 <CraigC> they are headed to Cooke City later to stay for 2 nights
13:52:59 <LindaGp> Nice, is snow gone out there?
13:53:11 <CraigC> no idea
13:56:40 <CraigC> she said they are in front of the cafeteria, so probably the lodge
14:02:04 <Sam> Of ie on static
14:02:08 <CraigC> OF
14:02:26 <Sam> Udo in field report for OF
14:02:50 <CraigC> maybe he is sitting on top of the inn
14:04:01 <Kevin L™🌵> He should look for a loose wire
14:06:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle 1404
14:12:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Vault might look promising
14:13:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle minor, 3½m
14:14:04 <ynpvisitor999®> next eruption likely 4h±1h
14:14:11 <Joe> WOW!! I see the camera has been extremely lots-o-fun to operate today P:)
14:14:24 <ynpvisitor999®> so 1804±1h
14:15:07 <ynpvisitor999®> The view was magnificent. The cam used to be on one view for so long that it became interesting to watch even after an eruption!
14:15:20 <LindaG> Joe, I sent you an email
14:15:49 <ynpvisitor999®> ge has arrived
14:16:45 <Joe> Thanks Linda
14:18:28 <Joe> It will clear up after 5ish when the interference machine operator goes home at the end of their shift :)
14:19:39 <Joe> It will be smooth sailing for me after the first two hour of my shift
14:20:54 <ynpvisitor81> Have not been around. Have they replaced the "housing" yet?
14:21:36 <ynpvisitor81> It could be the bear in the "C" loop.
14:23:21 <Joe> I don't think it will be fixed until they use all those start stop times I sent them and correlate to someone operating something at those times in the Ranger Station Or Inn
14:25:13 <Sam> Getting quite dark
14:28:48 <LindaGt> Lol I was just feeling guilty and was going to sign on cam and before I couldn't went down
14:29:02 <LindaGt> * before I could
14:29:39 <ynpvisitor81> So the cam quit in anticipation of you taking over?
14:29:59 <LindaGt> I think so 😛
14:30:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I would offer some tannerite but it is stuck somewhere between Phoenix and my house.
14:30:46 <Joe> poor Linda has had to suffer through a very painful day on the cam
14:31:02 <ynpvisitor81> Joe can add that to his list of suspects.
14:32:39 <ynpvisitor81> Well, I have had enough of backwards nascar racing for the day.
14:35:43 <LindaGp> Lol you guys are funny
14:52:41 <LindaGt> I signed and moved to geyser hill
14:52:59 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
14:53:34 <LindaGt> Of I 30 min so we have time
14:53:44 <ynpvisitor999®> and then the cam decided it didn't want to stream something other than OF
14:53:52 <LindaGt> And its down
15:00:18 <ynpvisitor7> Daisy and grand due and OF course OF
15:11:09 <LindaGp> Sorry waste of time it's down more than up.
15:15:18 <LindaGt> I'll try after OF
15:15:43 <LindaGt> To move down basin
15:17:13 <Joe> The person that operates the offending equipment started at 0927, took a break at 1100 to 1122, then 1304 to 1336, another at 1401 to 1424, how hard would it be to work with the dept supervisors and pin this down? QH! I forgot it is Gov't
15:18:17 <LindaGt> It's so frustrating
15:20:11 <Joe> I am not say ing it is a bad person, but is the faulty equipment they are operating.
15:22:02 <LindaGt> Good qualifier
15:22:30 <LindaGt> Look at all that green
15:29:57 <Joe> ok Linda I'll take the camera now, thanks for your efforts
15:30:48 <CraigC> Joe, when I worked for the govt, those time gaps are when we worked, not took breaks
15:31:12 <LindaGt> 😆
15:32:05 <Joe> :) Ah1 I never worked for the Gov't, I would not make a good employee :)
15:32:43 <LindaGt> Joe, good luck
15:33:01 <LindaGt> Quick its up
15:33:02 <Joe> Ah1 - Ah!
15:44:02 <ynpvisitor22> Fluffy
15:59:13 <LindaGt> Bulger
16:02:39 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
16:03:00 <Betty> evening Jarno
16:03:25 <CraigC> hey Betty
16:03:37 <Betty> hi Craig
16:03:43 <CraigC> I bet if you zoomed in, you could spot Eric
16:03:47 <Betty> OT
16:03:57 <CraigC> he looks like a hairless chewbacca
16:04:03 <Betty> lol
16:04:04 <ynpvisitor61> ynp000
16:05:04 <Betty> bad zoom?
16:05:35 <LindaGt> Might be lighting
16:06:02 <CraigC> Udo moved down to Biscuit
16:06:28 <Betty> ahhh
16:06:31 <Betty> much better
16:06:37 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
16:08:27 <Betty> Castle burst
16:11:00 <Betty> nah, we missed another Aurum
16:11:47 <CraigC> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05312019/765.jpg
16:12:28 <Joe> too many views too many geysers, the other cam location was much better
16:12:48 <Betty> cam down
16:13:18 <CraigC> the geysers do look better from this one, though...... if it is going
16:16:13 <Joe> yes I agree but we miss many, which view do you choose? and when OF is in window, and down basin geysers are in window and when geyser hill geysers are in window???
16:16:42 <CraigC> yeah, sucks for camops to have to drive it all over
16:17:44 <CraigC> I got my boat motor fixed earlier, so next week I think I will go to the lakes and not worry about broken cams
16:19:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ioe
16:22:01 <Joe> e cam has own 81 times today
16:23:27 <Joe> correct that 41 times
16:26:36 <Joe> Average of 7 times per hour since today's dropouts started
16:27:27 <Joe> Maybe they shotld add a Cam up entry to GT :)
16:29:21 <CraigC> LOL
16:29:24 <CraigC> Cam ie
16:29:52 <CraigC> duration = 20 seconds
16:29:53 <Betty> that would be like a perpetual spouter... ;-?
16:36:28 <CraigC> my daughter saw a young moose by Firehole Falls
16:37:28 <Joe> nice, not many moose are sighted in Yellowstone anymore
16:37:55 <CraigC> I rarely see them in the park, unless I go up north of West along Grayling Creek
16:39:39 <CraigC> spider ie
16:40:10 <CraigC> somewhere some person just passed out
16:40:10 <Joe> I see moose outside the park on the way in from Cody, often
16:40:56 <Cooper> Most moose I see are in Moose City
16:41:02 <Betty> I saw 2 at Elk Creek some years ago
16:41:39 <CraigC> hey squatch
16:43:22 <CraigC> did Gary take over cam?
16:43:55 <Joe> I have it for him
16:44:28 <CraigC> you followed his routine when he starts :)
16:55:40 <CraigC> Dave was right there, at Mouth
16:57:42 <CraigC> anemone?
16:58:18 <CraigC> I bet the guy in green is Eric
16:58:37 <CraigC> walked to the right
17:04:38 <CraigC> Dave said he is by Plume bench
17:06:43 <CraigC> That wasn't Eric, he is by Sawmill
17:10:18 <Joe> the cam has been up 40 min, i'm hoping the interference operator has gone back to the dorms
17:16:35 <ynpvisitor22> I’m at infant geyser hoping for some initial
17:16:51 <ynpvisitor22> Dome
17:17:10 <ynpvisitor999®> initial by any chance? :D
17:17:41 <ynpvisitor22> Yep depression 1717
17:18:09 <ynpvisitor999®> time for some camera time for the Hill then I think
17:19:09 <CraigC> cool, saw the bubble
17:19:42 <CraigC> steam from Midway
17:20:09 <ynpvisitor999®> How
17:20:12 <CraigC> isn't that unusual for this time of day?
17:20:21 <ynpvisitor999®> How's the Hill doing?
17:20:25 <ynpvisitor999®> darn enter key
17:21:27 <ynpvisitor22> Not midway steam. Lots of fluffy clouds that direction
17:21:36 <CraigC> :thumbsup: thanks
17:24:29 <ynpvisitor22> Tilts baby 1724
17:28:16 <CraigC> down
17:28:36 <CraigC> dave broke it
17:28:58 <CraigC> up
17:29:04 <Joe> control is up
17:29:05 <Kevin L™🌵> He was heating a burrito up in a microwave in his cabin.
17:29:19 <ynpvisitor22> Haha
17:29:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle will probably be soon. Based on its 1404 minor duration of 3½ minutes, and that a minute of a minor very roughly equates to an hour's worth of an interval, the next Castle is probably @ 1804±1h
17:29:39 <CraigC> ynpvisitor22, can you kick Lion?
17:29:48 <ynpvisitor22> I’m at the giantess bench
17:30:21 <ynpvisitor22> Probably at least 90 minutes for lion
17:30:40 <Joe> down now for sure
17:30:53 <CraigC> up
17:31:07 <CraigC> d
17:32:28 <ynpvisitor999®>
17:32:29 <ynpvisitor22> No pushups for me thanks
17:32:47 <ynpvisitor19> Oh no. Who broke the cam?
17:33:01 <CraigC> visitor22 broke it
17:33:32 <CraigC> aka Dave from Broke-it
17:33:57 <ynpvisitor19> LOL
17:33:57 <ynpvisitor68> thought that was Go Dome
17:34:07 <ynpvisitor22> Well, I’m closer to the cam than you
17:34:44 <CraigC> ynpvisitor22, can you go reconnect the old one in the tree?
17:35:20 <ynpvisitor22> Eric is in a white shirt at lion
17:35:31 <ynpvisitor22> Now ear
17:35:50 <CraigC> 3 steps and he will be at Solitary
17:36:20 <ynpvisitor22> Signing off. Time to finish a growler
17:36:26 <ynpvisitor22> Haha
17:36:37 <CraigC> cya Dave, enjoy
17:36:47 <ynpvisitor115> You make Growlers
17:37:22 <ynpvisitor22> Only drink them
17:37:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Hunting is not allowed in the Park.
17:37:26 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Dave, have fun
17:37:34 <ynpvisitor22> Trifecta was a lot of fun
17:37:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet
17:39:02 <ynpvisitor115> You can shoot in the park. People even shoot themselves several times a day.
17:39:37 <CraigC> a tourist walked across Grand Prismatic this morning
17:40:18 <ynpvisitor115> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzQ9kxs6RL8
17:40:19 <ynpvisitor999®> what an idiot
17:40:31 <ynpvisitor115> Jesus was in the park?
17:41:11 <ynpvisitor68> did they call LE or just post it on FB.
17:41:21 <CraigC> a lady videotaped it, took a pic of the license, and they caught him
17:41:30 <ynpvisitor115> Did not know anyone else can walk on water, even hot water.
17:41:31 <ynpvisitor68> yeah!
17:41:48 <ynpvisitor68> throw the book at him
17:42:07 <CraigC> https://www.facebook.com/amy.haluptzokwagler/videos/10216774068256838/?hc_location=ufi
17:42:44 <LindaG> I saw that video
17:43:10 <CraigC> she reported an hour ago that they caught him
17:43:20 <ynpvisitor115> Where can you get that high up at GP?
17:43:23 <Cooper> yikes
17:43:28 <ynpvisitor19> Keep it up and the NPS will put guard rails on all the boardwalks
17:43:32 <CraigC> ynpvisitor115, overlook trail
17:43:51 <ynpvisitor999®> At least that person won't be in the park for a couple of years or even behind bars for a bit
17:44:17 <CraigC> they just need more LEs. If the park took over all commercial tours, they could probably afford more staff
17:44:39 <ynpvisitor115> Like the rails at Riverside?
17:44:47 <ynpvisitor68> just ban all the commercial tours
17:44:49 <ynpvisitor115> Those are a joke
17:44:56 <ynpvisitor19> Or Fth
17:45:00 <LindaG> That video came up on Google news feed
17:45:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't think that person is part of an Asian touring group, as then many tourists would be off the boardwalk
17:45:28 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, they were in a rental car with a Colorado plate
17:46:00 <ynpvisitor19> FTN group was better without the rails
17:46:07 <ynpvisitor115> Colorado is infested with ...
17:46:24 <CraigC> careful... LOL
17:47:30 <ynpvisitor115> Grotto burp, or maybe the fountain?
17:48:05 <ynpvisitor115> Look 2 people taking up 5 spaces.
17:48:24 <ynpvisitor68> there are railings at River-side? Guess I need to get out more
17:48:36 <Joe> daisy
17:48:39 <Betty> daisy
17:49:13 <ynpvisitor115> They took aout all the benches to pave, and were putting in new bubmpers week before MD. I hope they put benches back soon.
17:49:16 <CraigC> with the new surface at Riverside, no more benches at present, and logs to sit on at the side of the pavement, nearest to the river
17:49:50 <ynpvisitor68> so no railings . .
17:50:01 <ynpvisitor115> Logs make poor benches. To small and close to the ground.
17:51:11 <ynpvisitor115> People just walk over them, so not a deterrent.
17:51:48 <ynpvisitor115> castle
17:52:00 <ynpvisitor115> I saw water
17:52:31 <CraigC> here are the logs; https://imgur.com/0SErazK
17:53:15 <ynpvisitor68> think I just mis-read the 'railings at riverside' comment above
17:54:13 <CraigC> bulger
17:54:44 <ynpvisitor115> 19 said guard rails, the logs would qualify for golf carts unless Kevin were driving.
17:55:07 <CraigC> old tardy?
17:55:19 <ynpvisitor115> more spikes ant Castle
17:55:21 <CraigC> yep
17:57:31 <CraigC> water
17:58:25 <ynpvisitor115> Grotto has more oomph then Castle.
17:58:58 <ynpvisitor115> Not even enough to gather a crowd.
17:58:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Rocket?
18:01:24 <ynpvisitor115> Rocket was at 14:39. Can it repeat?
18:02:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
18:02:44 <CraigC> 2 plumes?
18:03:04 <ynpvisitor115> Must be what it is then, sure is not enough excitement for Castle and too quick after the minor.
18:03:34 <ynpvisitor115> focus went haywire on us.
18:05:23 <CraigC> is the other steam from bijou?
18:05:24 <ynpvisitor115> Sorry, looked at map wrong. Scratch rocket and Castle post above.
18:05:43 <ynpvisitor115> Time to go. Cannot type or read maps.
18:06:56 <CraigC> sprinkler
18:12:14 <LindaG> So I guess our Interupter went home for the day?
18:12:25 <LindaG> Uh I guess not
18:13:10 <LindaG> It says down but things are moving g
18:13:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
18:18:02 <ynpvisitor9> last cam up time was 1745
18:18:46 <ynpvisitor68> did depression' erupt earlier?
18:19:01 <CraigC> yes
18:19:34 <ynpvisitor68> is it on GT? let me refresh mine
18:20:12 <CraigC> I'll enter when I saw a burst
18:21:56 <LindaG> The cam has even befuddled the chat board
18:22:25 <ynpvisitor9> 10 min
18:22:42 <ynpvisitor68> lol thanks
18:24:46 <LindaG> Meaning it says it's down, not the peopl on chat 😉
18:24:52 <ynpvisitor9> 12min
18:26:13 <ynpvisitor9> No idea why it says down cam has not bobbled
18:30:57 <ynpvisitor9> maybe Eric's machine that does the pinging has a problem
18:31:35 <ynpvisitor9> Castle major
18:39:58 <LindaG> It had to ping one too many times today
18:43:58 <LindaG> Fixed
18:47:36 <CraigC> OF
18:50:33 <ynpvisitor9> last night I fell asleep after switching to OF and left the cam on Of for over an hour... now i have to set an OF due alarm and an OF done alarm :)
18:51:00 <ynpvisitor53> Haha joe
18:51:18 <ynpvisitor53> You guys ready for lion?
18:51:48 <CraigC> I'm about ready for the Deadwood movie

18:54:18 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
18:57:23 <ynpvisitor9> After dark we will not see anything until about 4 am
18:57:47 <LindaG>
18:59:23 <ynpvisitor9> cam is not down internet issues between Eric's pinger and cam
19:02:59 <ynpvisitor9> static cam is not updating either
19:04:56 <ynpvisitor9> static just updated
19:08:59 <ynpvisitor53> Extended fill at north googles since at least 1830
19:09:26 <Betty> hi Dave, say hi to Eric
19:11:11 <Kevin L™🌵> You are up early Betty
19:11:59 <Betty> still up, Kevin :-)
19:12:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I knew it was up early or up late!
19:14:21 <ynpvisitor53> Will do Betty
