06:18:00 <LindaGp> Looks like a little bubbler
06:18:07 <lc> I did miss Aurum
06:18:31 <LindaGp> lc, cam froze during so not much to see
06:18:45 <LindaGp> lc, hi
06:19:10 <LindaGp> I didn't quit
06:19:34 <lc> hot and dry here, suppose to get storms Wed.
06:20:28 <LindaGp> Maybe they'll cool you off a bit
06:20:50 <LindaGp> It was 49 here this morning, storms last night
06:21:04 <LindaGp> Not 49, 59
06:22:17 <LindaGp> lc, i successfully changed reservations so ill be in park till 29.
06:22:57 <LindaGp> Leaving on 30th
06:23:03 <lc> 66 here now but we have been in upper 80's and low 90's for about three weeks now and NO rain.
06:23:39 <LindaGp> Oh thats miserable
06:24:29 <lc> it you are in the UGB late 28th or 29th try to say hello.
06:25:23 <lc> can always call on channel 4.5
06:25:34 <LindaGp> I will. Have to set up a schedule of where ill be, so ill remember that..
06:26:38 <LindaGp> Oh wow I don't have radios hmmm maybe I should buy some
06:27:51 <lc> they are a BIG help.
06:28:23 <lc> make sure you get radio with subchannels.
06:28:26 <LindaGp> I'll have to look into it
06:28:42 <LindaGp> Ok on subchannels
06:32:04 <CraigC> LindaGp, these are the ones I ordered a couple of years ago, good for the money;
06:32:47 <lc> I like Mara's note on SB.
06:33:25 <CraigC> looks like these ones are about the current models;
06:33:58 <ynpvisitor72> just make sure you check to see if your radios have VOX = voice activated, and if they do make sure it is turned off
06:34:38 <ynpvisitor72> otherwise you get a lot of grumbly gazers
06:34:46 <CraigC> lc, I don't see MAra's note on GT
06:34:51 <LindaGp> CraigC, thanks so much craig saves
06:35:06 <LindaGp> ME TIME
06:35:28 <ynpvisitor72> what was Mara's note?
06:35:33 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor72, Ok ill beware
06:36:18 <KittyM> OF on static
06:36:19 <ynpvisitor72> well Kyle has made it to giant, spa, and fan & mortar
06:36:34 <ynpvisitor33>
06:38:05 <lc> sorry, her comment not note.
06:38:42 <CraigC> lc, thanks
06:40:08 <ynpvisitor33> I don't believe that FB note so I look forward to the rest when seh finishes it
06:42:01 <ynpvisitor72> it is listed under the major eruption time for SB on June 1
06:42:22 <CraigC> LindaGp, sorry, did I have you looking at Amazon instead of predictions? ;)
06:42:29 <ynpvisitor33> ^^ link above
06:42:33 <LindaGp> Ok so I missed that. Oops
06:42:47 <LindaGp> CraigC, Yes lol, oh well it's early
06:44:00 <ynpvisitor96> Next thing you will be showing cars in the parking lot :)
06:44:18 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor96, lol
06:45:09 <LindaGp> Ok eyes glued to screen
06:49:04 <ynpvisitor11>
06:50:07 <ynpvisitor11> Why is this monitoring data blank?
06:50:33 <ynpvisitor72> my guess is that it isn't working
06:51:45 <ynpvisitor11> Changed the data?
06:52:42 <LindaGp> From what?
06:52:44 <ynpvisitor72> nice steam
06:52:57 <ynpvisitor72> is that from Giant or Grotto?
06:53:11 <LindaGp> Bulger
06:53:25 <LindaGp> Wow look at it go
06:53:58 <ynpvisitor72> 38 degrees out
06:54:05 <ynpvisitor11> Old faithful
06:54:09 <ynpvisitor33> ynpvisitor11, they don't change data
06:54:36 <ynpvisitor11> yep
06:55:49 <LindaGp> Good morning kevin
06:56:01 <lc> Bulger is a Maj
06:56:34 <ynpvisitor72> why does #11 post old faithful at 0654?
06:56:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning.
06:58:03 <lc> morning Kevin
06:58:06 <LindaGp> I think arty might be erupting
06:58:25 <LindaGp> Hard to tell with all this steam
06:58:32 <ynpvisitor11> There is a problem with this data.
06:59:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Linda, a radio is not an option for a gazer. You will need one and both of the ones suggested are great. I have a set of Motorolas that I got in 1998 that still work great. We got one for the kids and the only problem we had is the volume knob came off one.
06:59:54 <LindaGp> I'll order them. It will help with communication between me and friend too
07:00:07 <LindaGp> Old tardy
07:00:13 <lc> I think we got our radios in 97 or 98
07:00:19 <ynpvisitor33> remember to use another channel with your friend
07:00:34 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor33, ok
07:00:58 <ynpvisitor33> or, someone will suggest that you do :)
07:01:25 <Kevin L™🌵> I leave mine on all night in the cabin. Got everything from BH to northern lights because of them.
07:01:31 <lc> that is for sure #33
07:02:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. 4.5 is for geyser talk only and a few tourons that use it but most of them change when they can't get through the chatter.
07:02:52 <ynpvisitor33> most gazers will use 5.5 or 3.5 as it's easy to switch to talk about lunch or other things
07:02:59 <ynpvisitor11> I think the staff at Yellowstone Park are hiding some things.
07:03:48 <ynpvisitor33> ynpvisitor11, I doubt it. The seismo just isn't transmitting
07:05:09 <lc> the VC also uses 4.5.
07:05:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the "stealth" gazers that use 7.5 when they say to go to 5.5 so people don't listen in. Sort of like the old party lines.
07:05:40 <ynpvisitor72> they were working on using another channel lc
07:05:57 <lc> I didn
07:06:10 <lc> t know that 72
07:06:11 <ynpvisitor33> haha kevin.
07:06:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I think GOSA got the VEC a base station so they could monitor the geyser calls and we could report stuff to them. They fell in love with the system.
07:06:44 <ynpvisitor33> there are some that say "Go to 5" so often I'd just like to buy them another set of radios
07:07:32 <Kevin L™🌵> That is also an option. We had the kids on another channel when they were out.
07:09:01 <ynpvisitor33> I remember one year with a bison right by Blue Star. The VEC chatter about that was overtaking any communications on 4.5
07:09:23 <LindaGp> Just saw water on castle
07:09:23 <Kevin L™🌵> If there would have been FRS back in 86 I would have seen another Giant.
07:10:10 <ynpvisitor11>
07:10:12 <ynpvisitor72> bison distraction across from Castle
07:11:11 <Kevin L™🌵> GOSA as a research group would be able to get a radio frequency assigned to them and Federal Law would prevent anyone not approved by GOSA from talking on it.
07:11:58 <LindaGp> Castlw
07:12:00 <ynpvisitor72> Castle
07:12:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice start.
07:18:57 <ynpvisitor72> pretty sure Bob is posted and indy watchout spot
07:19:10 <ynpvisitor72> so should get a text
07:19:33 <LindaGp> Oh good
07:19:51 <LindaGp> It had a tiny bubbler last time I looked
07:19:57 <ynpvisitor33> I bet he gets a Daisy first
07:20:18 <Kevin L™🌵> BH between 0900 and 1030.
07:20:33 <LindaGp> Where ya going kevin?
07:20:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Dentist
07:21:12 <LindaGp> Trains would be more fun
07:21:42 <LindaGp> 10 min on castle
07:25:09 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:25:20 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, hi
07:25:41 <Kevin L™🌵> You are back to B?
07:26:04 <Dave from B™> Yep. Back home Sat nite
07:27:17 <CraigC> wb Dave
07:27:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you get the SB?
07:28:07 <LindaGp> Looks like water stopped on castle
07:30:32 <LindaGp> Marked castle as major
07:30:33 <Dave from B™> Thanks. No SB for me. Didn't even stop Sat on the way thru
07:31:01 <Dave from B™> But, i have had my top 2 geyser moments this year so it has been a great year
07:31:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Bummer. I was hoping you got it. At least your car started!
07:32:32 <CraigC> hope Eric gets it resolved today
07:32:43 <lc> hey Dave, congrats on the tri-f.
07:33:16 <lc> too bad it was dark
07:33:21 <LindaGp> Cam troubled
07:33:39 <LindaGp> Still up whew
07:33:46 <lc> the one I saw few years ago was at night also.
07:34:26 <CraigC> I'm headed out to take my boat on its 2019 maiden voyage... hope it goes better than the webcam
07:34:43 <Cooper> CraigC, bye
07:34:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Or Eric's car.
07:34:50 <CraigC> hi and bye, Cooper
07:35:00 <CraigC> yeah, or Eric's starter
07:35:10 <LindaGp> CraigC, and better than the mailbox
07:35:14 <CraigC> hahahahaha
07:35:29 <LindaGp> Hehe
07:35:32 <CraigC> I opened Pandora's Box
07:35:36 <Kevin L™🌵> It probably does have a pull start though.
07:36:04 <CraigC> yep, a 1968 Evinrude.... plus a nice 12v motor
07:36:04 <Kevin L™🌵> You fishing or just cruising?
07:36:12 <Dave from B™> lc, thanks!
07:36:18 <Cooper> CraigC, what lake?
07:36:20 <CraigC> fishing, going after the small bass along the banks
07:36:26 <CraigC> Hyrum Res, near Logan
07:36:31 <Dave from B™> Graham had 2 monster flashlights so viewing was good
07:36:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice area
07:36:52 <LindaGp> Dis we miss daisy?
07:36:56 <Dave from B™> CraigC, make sure you keep the plug in so it doesn't sink
07:37:04 <CraigC> many times I get hits or hooks on every cast in certain spots
07:37:23 <CraigC> Dave from B™, LMAO, that was the first thing I did this morning during the prep
07:37:25 <Dave from B™> I hope Eric gets home today
07:37:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the cheese and Pepperidge Farm stores there. Raspberry honey butter is awessome.
07:38:11 <LindaGp> Last daisy was 2:19 ago
07:38:20 <Cooper> thx for the fishing spot
07:38:24 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, I have to stay away from those places.... I'm fat and have no restraint
07:39:16 <CraigC> Cooper, where do you live?
07:39:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate to that. I avoid that Fat Boy ice cream place up there.
07:39:48 <Cooper> Colorado, but go on fishing trips every year
07:39:54 <Dave from B™> Restraints...CraigC, you left yourself open:)
07:40:44 <CraigC> Cooper, there are way better places for bigger fish, I go to Hyrum because it is one of the closest, and it is small with not many other people. But the fish are little. I go there for relaxation, not whoppers
07:41:06 <Kevin L™🌵> DSaisy
07:41:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Or something like that
07:41:25 <Cooper> CraigC, I usually dot fish for huge fish, I just like to relax and maybe catch a few
07:41:31 <CraigC> East Canyon I catch bigger fish, but when the big wake surf boats show up, it sucks
07:41:31 <Cooper> do not*
07:41:40 <Cooper> thx
07:41:57 <Cooper> do you have a bass boat?
07:42:03 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the mountain stream trout.
07:42:11 <CraigC> nope, just a little 13 foot aluminum
07:42:26 <CraigC> easy to launch by myself
07:42:59 <Cooper> Kevin L™🌵, If you like trout you should come to Colorado
07:43:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Find a shady spot, sit on the bank, toss the line in the water, don't bait the hook.
07:44:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I have done some fishing in Colorado. It is good. My Father In Law was from Colorado.
07:44:52 <Cooper> Nice, do you have a boat, or do oyu like to fish on rivers/tributaries?
07:44:55 <CraigC> bbl, best wishes on cam letting you see some eruptions
07:45:18 <Cooper> CraigC, bye
07:46:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the fast moving mountain streams. Nice good firm fish. I have done some in boats but not much shade on a lake! Also hard to build a fire to cook them on!
07:47:15 <LindaG> My house lost power and I lost everything. I'm back on cam
07:47:38 <Kevin L™🌵> We found Daisy
07:48:01 <Cooper> Kevin L™🌵, you should try the South Platte river in northern colorado
07:48:31 <LindaG> Oh good
07:49:23 <Cooper> its fast, easily accessible, and has a tenancy to catch huge, sometimes 25 inch fish
07:49:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Depression looks warm
07:50:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a friend that pulled a 47lb Stripper bass from Lake Mead. 3 hours on a 12lb test line.
07:50:47 <Cooper> that would be a huge fight, cant imagine your arm muscles after that
07:52:15 <Kevin L™🌵> That would wear you out for sure.
07:53:53 <ynpvisitor39> Think dome is erupting or just steaming?
07:54:39 <ynpvisitor39> Dont see water
07:54:42 <Dave from B™> I thought we were going to get a Lion initial, North Googles dual when I was there
08:00:09 <The Curium> Kevin L, isn't that one reason people go to Vegas - for the strippers?
08:02:49 <Cooper> The Curium, nice LOL
08:05:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I think so
08:10:45 <ynpvisitor39> Of
08:16:19 <lc> time for breakfast here.

08:21:13 <Dave from B™> 12 consecutive BH eruptions between 1000 and 1500
08:21:26 <Dave from B™> And, I missed everyone while I was there
08:21:44 <Dave from B™> No, you guys...I meant BH:D
08:21:47 <Dave from B™> Not*
08:22:27 <Dave from B™> Any exciting conversation while I was away?
08:22:48 <ynpvisitor101> You did not miss us...I'm devastated :(
08:24:29 <Dave from B™> I must have missed everyone. I jumped on a couple times when I was on GH
08:24:34 <LindaG> Dave from B™, mostly conversation about cam being down
08:25:31 <LindaG> Dave from B™, we knew you were out there. You entered something on the hill, ah, I think it was LC
08:27:12 <LindaG> LA
08:27:48 <Dave from B™> I didn't post much this time. With Eric and Graham, there was no need to
08:28:24 <LindaG> 😊
08:28:58 <LindaG> Dave from B™, I'm going to be there on 21st. I cancelled my trip to glacier because of fires
08:29:32 <Dave from B™> I had some good geyser mojo. A walkup Aurum and 2 Lion initials with a total weight of 80 minutes
08:29:34 <LindaG> I'll have a photo op in front of LC
08:30:05 <Dave from B™> Nice, Linda
08:30:23 <LindaG> I'm excited 9 days in YNP
08:32:13 <Dave from B™> Where will you be staying?
08:33:08 <LindaG> I found 10 days of rooms at Grant Village, someone must have cancelled
08:33:31 <LindaG> I've never stayed there
08:33:55 <LindaG> Looks nice though
08:34:52 <LindaG> Spider
08:35:14 <LindaG> Ewwww lol
08:36:04 <Dave from B™> Always nice to be close to the lake
08:36:31 <The Curium> Major wolf spider incident
08:36:47 <LindaG> Yes I didn't realize really I was looking at pics this morning and it's closer to Of

08:59:27 <The Curium> Why do I feel like Little Miss Muffett this morning?
08:59:49 <LindaG> The hill does look.llike a tuffet
09:00:27 <LindaG> I actually don't know what a tuffet is. Lol
09:05:56 <The Curium> A tuffet is a small seat, like a footstool or hassock
09:06:37 <LindaG> 👍
09:06:43 <The Curium> But also can refer to an elevated grassy mound
09:10:57 <ynpvisitor72> that spider was on the cam yesterday
09:12:17 <The Curium> Guess it hasn't been frightened away :-}
09:13:35 <LindaG> Bee quiet

10:14:32 <ynpvisitor999®> that's Grotto indeed
10:14:33 <Cooper> ynpvisitor999®, hi
10:14:55 <Katie> Morning, Jarno
10:18:44 <Rice> Thank you, I just picture Groto farther down basin than that.
10:19:17 <Katie> Telephoto compression at play... can't judge distance between objects
10:19:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Say thank you!
10:25:50 <Katie> Wow, Geyser Hill looks sleepy
10:42:55 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Terry
10:52:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:53:20 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
10:57:11 <Rice> Is Lioness spurting a little also?
10:57:56 <Cooper> I think you are seeing the cone of Big Cub, if I am not mistaken
10:58:46 <Dave from B™> Big Cub has been known to spit. I saw it on a Lion initial last week
10:59:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Next Lion, if series continues, @ 1159±5m
10:59:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger ie
10:59:42 <Dave from B™> It can happen with Lioness as well. I'm not sure if it is more likely before an initial or not
11:01:08 <Dave from B™> ..
11:02:09 <Katie> I hope the person that reported Turban at 10:42 keeps reporting
11:02:18 <ynpvisitor84> Grand.
11:02:21 <Katie> Grand
11:02:23 <Katie> Shoot.
11:02:30 <Katie> Too close to OF window
11:11:21 <Cooper> hopefully we get a sawmill soon, the water is rising and palpalating
11:13:01 <Sam> Just noticed the Norris Loggers haven't been working for a few days now
11:19:07 <Sam> OF ie on Static
11:19:25 <Katie> OF is almost over. :)
11:19:38 <Dave from B™> Are you frozen Sam?
11:19:51 <Katie> And streaming is on it - you must be big-time delayed
11:20:09 <Steph> Hi guys! How is everyone today?
11:20:15 <Sam> This has been a problem since last summer *eye roll*
11:20:22 <Katie> Hi Steph.
11:20:58 <Katie> I appreciate the heads-up anyway, Sam. Had I not been on it with streaming, that would have been very helpful, so I appreciate the motive. :)
11:21:20 <Sam> I'll be moving later this summer and *hopefully* getting a new computer so I hope the streaming on my end will get better. :)
11:22:08 <Katie> What browser are you using? Your experience may vary, but I have found Chrome with flash allowed to be the best for me.
11:22:28 <Steph> Katie, me too.
11:22:50 <Katie> I'm set up on my deck today, which is wonderful for enjoying the flowers and the birds and just being outside, but glossy screen is killing me.
11:23:06 <Steph> That sounds beautiful!
11:23:31 <Katie> I started shopping for a new notebook and then remembered I am likely to need new tires soon, so I better hold off for now.
11:23:39 <Dave from B™> Morning Katie and Steph.
11:23:48 <Dave from B™> Steph, how was your trip?
11:23:56 <Katie> (new tires for my Wrangler are going to cost more than a computer)
11:24:27 <Sam> I just got new tires a few weeks back
11:24:37 <Sam> Not cheap :(
11:24:42 <Steph> Dave from B™, it was so awesome, I can't even tell you!
11:24:56 <Dave from B™> Great to hear, Steph
11:26:08 <Steph> Dave from B™, I am looking at gopro's right now, because there has got to be a good way for me to take better videos!
11:26:24 <Katie> Tires never are. I am at 50k miles on this set, though, so at least this time I feel like I got my money's worth.
11:27:06 <Katie> I had a Nissan Maxima for a few years. I had to buy tires for that thing about every year - and for no good reason that I could see, it NEEDED expensive high performance tires.
11:27:32 <Katie> At least with expensive tires for the Jeep, I KNOW why I want/need them.
11:27:43 <Sam> That's about where I was. I went in for an oil change and the mechanics told me I needed to get my tires changed THAT day
11:28:10 <Sam> Guess I let my tires go a bit longer past their wear
11:28:53 <Sam> Graham in-basin with a Doublet Pool eruption!
11:29:08 <Katie> I'm due for oil change & tire rotation and I've got a slow leak in one tire. I have a feeling that tire is going to be too old to repair... I'll find out Wednesdayish.
11:29:29 <Katie> Whoohoo for Graham!
11:30:13 <Sam> Oh, he just changed it to a note
11:31:39 <Steph> I love Doublet Pool, it is so beautiful!
11:35:01 <Cooper> Aurum
11:36:14 <Katie> Darn
11:45:37 <Katie> Pump?
11:59:57 <ynpvisitor95> Is that LC or Lioness?
12:00:01 <Dave from B™> Aurum has been almost predictable of late
12:00:09 <Cooper> LC
12:00:53 <ynpvisitor95> I thought LC was the closer one...
12:01:10 <Cooper> LC is the one erupting right now
12:01:14 <ynpvisitor95> thanks
12:01:29 <Cooper> Lioness is the cone to the left
12:01:39 <Cooper> And then Big Cub is behind Lioness
12:02:21 <ynpvisitor95> Still getting used to the new perspective
12:02:52 <Cooper> Lion
12:02:57 <Dave from B™> Kaleidoscope was fun to see even though you are half a mile away
12:03:25 <Cooper> Next Lion around 1:05
12:03:30 <Dave from B™> It has to be the tallest geyser not close to a trail
12:05:15 <ynpvisitor105> K13 is taller when at full height. Not far from Kaleidoscope
12:07:06 <Dave from B™> I need to study up on that area. Are they ever active at the same time?
12:07:17 <ynpvisitor105> Yes
12:07:44 <CraigC> back from fishing.... don't ask
12:07:54 <Dave from B™> We saw 20 Kaleidoscopes on the day after the trifecta plus Reverse FireHose and Honey comb
12:07:58 <Cooper> did you catch anything, or get skunked
12:08:09 <Dave from B™> wb, Craig. Did the boat hit a mailbox?
12:08:15 <CraigC> LOL
12:08:20 <Cooper> did you sink
12:08:38 <CraigC> stink? yes
12:09:17 <Cooper> How many fish?
12:09:53 <CraigC> 0
12:10:01 <Dave from B™> There is always tomorrow
12:10:16 <Cooper> :thumbsdown: you will catch them next time
12:10:19 <CraigC> probably wait a month or so
12:14:11 <CraigC> how has the cam been?
12:15:56 <Katie> It's been behaving *knocks on wood*
12:18:48 <Betty> hi all
12:18:56 <Cooper> Betty, hi
12:18:59 <Katie> Hi Betty
12:19:10 <CraigC> hey Betty
12:19:20 <Betty> hi Katie, Cooper, CraigC, wb Dave
12:20:04 <Steph> Hi Betty!
12:20:14 <Betty> hi Steph
12:22:12 <CraigC> hey Steph
12:22:35 <Steph> CraigC, Hi! How's it going?
12:22:59 <CraigC> good, when did you get back form the park?
12:23:53 <Steph> End of last week. I'm just going through my pics and vids now. I am also realizing that I need better photo skills! HAHAHA!
12:24:38 <Steph> Did you already get in for your second trip, or is it coming up?
12:25:40 <CraigC> we were there for 4 days before Memorial Day
12:26:46 <Katie> Daisy
12:26:47 <Steph> Awesome! One of these days we'll have to meet up. Are you headed back this summer?
12:27:14 <Dave from B™> Thanks Betty
12:28:12 <CraigC> no plans yet, but I want to. how about you?
12:29:08 <Betty> you have back your breath from hiking with Eric?
12:29:29 <Steph> Me too. My daughter and I are going to "camp" in our backyard so we can get it right by ourselves, then head up as many times as possible, to see SB and Morning.
12:29:46 <Dave from B™> I do but if is hard to hike with someone when 3 of your steps equal 2 of his!:)
12:29:54 <CraigC> LOL
12:30:05 <Betty> ohh, haha
12:30:05 <CraigC> Steph, where will you camp in the park?
12:30:15 <Dave from B™> Steph, where do you live? For some reason, I thought you lived a long ways away.
12:32:26 <Katie> I *think* I finally get to head to the Park Friday after work and stay through Monday this weekend.
12:33:16 <Steph> CraigC, I'll hopefully find a spot. Even if we have to head up and 2:00 AM. I send my son, DIL, and Baby Grand off to graduate school in July/August, so maybe I won't make it back til Sept.
12:33:40 <Steph> Dave from B™, I'm in Utah, so only 5 hours or so. Not too bad.
12:34:02 <Dave from B™> Nice. Lots of Utah gazers
12:34:08 <Steph> Katie, nice!! The weather looks beautiful for gazing!
12:35:28 <CraigC> hey Joe
12:35:31 <Cooper> Hi Joe
12:35:40 <Betty> hi Joe
12:35:50 <Dave from B™> Longer Fountain duration. Now, we just need longer intervals
12:36:09 <Steph> Hi Joe!
12:36:09 <Joe> Hi, Craig, Cooper and Betty
12:36:23 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:36:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Just woke up. Fell asleep at my computer.
12:36:38 <Katie> yup
12:36:43 <Betty> hey, Kevin. Where did you hide?
12:36:48 <Joe> Hi Steph and Kevin
12:37:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I was in plain sight, but not aware of my surroundings.
12:37:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
12:37:45 <Steph> Kevin L™🌵, that's me most days!
12:38:10 <Joe> Other one little dropout at 0821 the cam looks to have been stable so far
12:38:34 <Dave from B™> Kevin, what woke you up?
12:38:59 <Dave from B™> Are those keyboard indentations on your chin?
12:39:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure. I may still be dreaming.
12:39:17 <CraigC> Kevin had a nightmare of crashing a train into an Indy car
12:39:53 <Dave from B™> Train still wins
12:40:45 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the nightmare was another package from Phoenix.
12:41:16 <Dave from B™> We should make that into a country song
12:41:35 <Kevin L™🌵> I even had my iPad on my lap.
12:42:49 <Kevin L™🌵> For some reason 90% of my packages that go through Phoenix have problems. This one finally says it is on a delivery truck.
12:43:55 <ynpvisitor3> the cam is up? How novel. Thanks for the OF close up, cam op
12:45:19 <Dave from B™> Is it on a delivery truck in LV or somewhere else?
12:46:11 <Steph> OF looks so cool close up like this. I almost don't even recognize it!
12:47:09 <ynpvisitor3> I like the close ups too Steph
12:47:44 <Katie> did not quit
12:47:58 <ynpvisitor3> it says a lot of people are quitters today
12:48:43 <Katie> I find the OF stakeout more interesting if I play with zoom, so I'm glad yez like the closeups. :)
12:49:10 <Steph> Katie, thanks, you camops seriously rock!
12:49:12 <ynpvisitor3> might as well give us a look we cannot get otherwise
12:49:31 <Katie> My notebook screen was clean when I came out on the deck with it 3 hours ago. It's covered with pollen, now.
12:49:45 <ynpvisitor3> wow, where are you Katie?
12:49:54 <Katie> Lolo, MT
12:50:11 <ynpvisitor3> Pine pollen is no fun
12:50:22 <ynpvisitor3> so pervasive
12:50:46 <Katie> crap
12:50:47 <ynpvisitor3> why is it every time OF starts, my stream stops
12:50:52 <ynpvisitor3> it is uncanny
12:51:03 <ynpvisitor3> this happened to me yesterday as well
12:51:27 <Steph> At least the static looks pretty!
12:51:33 <ynpvisitor3> that close up was cool, yet overall I hate the new cam
12:51:33 <Katie> it's back
12:51:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice still though
12:52:17 <ynpvisitor3> so frustrating, now I have the evil x on my screen above OF
12:52:34 <Betty> OF
12:52:36 <Katie> refresh - stream is back
12:53:02 <ynpvisitor3> I see the stream, just with an x, will refresh once it's over so I don't miss anymore
12:53:35 <Steph> Is it just me, or when refreshing the chat disappears?
12:53:39 <ynpvisitor3> I am going to write a letter a week I think, saying how bad this cam is
12:53:50 <ynpvisitor3> because it is BAD
12:54:00 <Katie> If you use the refresh at the bottom of this page with the camera status, it won't. If you use browser refresh, it does.
12:54:42 <Steph> Katie, thank you!
12:54:43 <Kevin L™🌵> If I have a private message on that day it does that to me Steph.
12:54:43 <ynpvisitor3> just have to figure out where to send it
12:55:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Here you are #3:
12:58:14 <ynpvisitor3> thanks Kevin
13:06:43 <Betty> Lion
13:08:09 <Dave from B™> I met Luke Gordon (ldgordon). A nice smart young man
13:08:29 <Dave from B™> He works at the snow lodge until the end of July and is gazing EVERY chance he gets
13:08:43 <Betty> nice
13:10:40 <Betty> you´re a quitter
13:12:22 <Steph> It's bunky...
13:13:03 <ynpvisitor5> It may say you've quit but looking at the right side we are painfully aware that you are still here :)
13:13:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I is cleaning house
13:14:20 <Dave from B™> hahahaha 5
13:15:01 <Sam> I didn't see the last OF, but it's not entered yet
13:15:50 <Katie> 12:50 was start time. I'll enter
13:16:13 <Sam> Thanks Katie
13:17:58 <Sam> First humid day here in South Dakota. Could use some mountain air right about now.
13:23:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Still smoky up there Sam?
13:24:03 <Sam> Not as bad anymore
13:24:38 <Sam> Winds have switched around to the south as opposed to the north
13:25:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Hopefully they will get a handle on them now.
13:27:11 <Sam> I hope so. News reports a few days ago weren't very promising
13:29:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Time to head to the depot for a few projects. bbl
13:51:38 <Steph> Well, I'm off to get plants to replace those that got toasted while I was in YNP Geyser Fanning! See ya'll later! :D
13:51:56 <Dave from B™> bye Steph the GAZER
13:52:02 <Betty> later
13:52:07 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Steph
13:52:11 <Dave from B™> Wear your moniker proudly:)
14:37:09 <Dave from B™> I just realized there are people staring at us from the backsiode of OF
14:37:25 <Katie> wave
14:39:54 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
14:40:05 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
14:42:14 <ynpvisitor21> Of
14:43:03 <ynpvisitor21> And the cam dropped out
14:43:47 <ynpvisitor21> Back
14:49:26 <ynpvisitor62> X
14:49:45 <ynpvisitor62> O
14:49:52 <ynpvisitor62> my stream plays tic tac toe
14:50:31 <ynpvisitor999®> GHG-16 or is that one of the Beaches ie
14:50:33 <ynpvisitor999®> ?
14:50:46 <Dave from B™> Yeah...Polly is at UGB
14:51:22 <Sam> Seismic monitor at OF not working?
14:51:22 <Dave from B™> 7 Lions in this series so far
14:51:34 <Sam> Go:lion:!
14:51:49 <Joe> Gary Novak is at Grand
14:51:59 <Dave from B™> That's odd, Sam. How long has it been down?
14:52:08 <Sam> Just noticed it
14:52:11 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like the red spike on YFT rendered the rest of the seismo unreadable
14:52:43 <Sam> I usually have the seismo on Norris
14:56:53 <Sam> Plus the Norris loggers are some
14:56:57 <Sam> Down*
14:57:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill will look at the loggers in this week
14:57:26 <Sam> Those stopped working sometime on 5/29
14:58:05 <Sam> Gotcha. But there wasn’t a quake or anything weird that would have knocked YFT off?
15:01:35 <ynpvisitor999®> don't think so. The red spike on YFT has something away from a short calibration spike, though not sure on that
15:07:48 <Dave from B™> Hi, Lori S
15:08:00 <Lori S> Hi Dave
15:08:24 <Dave from B™> Hey, can you explain your Google Group post?
15:08:34 <Lori S> ?
15:08:45 <Lori S> The one about Cistern?
15:08:49 <Dave from B™> The one about the Cistern levels
15:08:57 <Dave from B™> Did anyone anwer you?
15:09:50 <Lori S> No one has answered so far. Prior to that one, I noticed that Cistern dropped to just below overflow before the major. About a day before.
15:09:53 <Katie> LC
15:10:37 <Dave from B™> And stayed at that level up until the eruption?
15:10:54 <Lori S> On 5/13, when I asked her, CB told me Cistern had been below overflow all day that day before the major.
15:11:34 <Dave from B™> Interesting. Thanks for the details
15:11:57 <Lori S> Not an exact answer, but I think it WAS low at time of major. Factually, I can only say that for sure about the 5/13 eruption.
15:12:51 <Lori S> I saw it just below overflow (JBO) the night before the...stand by for date
15:15:31 <Lori S> OK, good thing I put it in GT as I am awful at retaining my notes...
15:17:00 <Lori S> Dates it was JBO: 19 Apr 0955, 01 May 2041, 26 May 0622
15:18:55 <Dave from B™> Thanks Lori
15:19:26 <Lori S> Majors: 03 May 0220, 27 May 1729
15:19:51 <Dave from B™> C'mon Lion
15:20:13 <CraigC> :lion:
15:20:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
15:20:16 <Lori S> OK, so 2 day before? Ignore the first JBO I gave, it may have beeen on the way up still?
15:22:25 <Dave from B™> That's actually 29 hours
15:22:49 <Lori S> See why I am not a reliable data fact collector?
15:23:12 <Dave from B™> I'm not the greatest either
15:24:07 <Lori S> And, if I recall, there was a "lull" of SB minors at that same time, about 29-30 hours prior.
15:24:35 <Lori S> I didn't write them all down cuz I didn't realize it was a Thing
15:24:47 <Lori S> or possibly a Thing
15:25:28 <Dave from B™> cam down
15:26:01 <Lori S> I did take time stamped photos, though, of some of the Thing I was seeing
15:26:39 <Lori S> IMO, this behavior is a change form last year, but I can not sya that for sure.
15:27:47 <Dave from B™> Did you discuss that theory with CB?
15:27:52 <Lori S> So, Dave, did you see a second after 5/13?
15:28:02 <Dave from B™> Or Tom C or Udo
15:28:28 <Dave from B™> No, just one so far. I did get the trifecta with Graham last week, however.
15:28:43 <Dave from B™> I LOVE Morning
15:29:15 <Lori S> Well, no. I just asked her what Cistern looked like that day (the 13th) to which she said it had been a little low all day.
15:29:48 <Lori S> Oooh, jealous about the trifecta. So Cool!
15:30:21 <Lori S> And, no, I haven't talked to Tom or Udo or anyone else except Bob about it.
15:30:34 <Lori S> My Bob, to be clear
15:31:56 <Lori S> I have been meaning to gather up my photos and my and other GT notes and see if there is a factual pattern. I've been meaning to do that since last May. :(
15:32:36 <Lori S> factual? proven? repetetive?
15:33:14 <Lori S> I am more of a Forest person than a Trees person
15:34:48 <CraigC> I don't see either all that well anymore
15:34:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket?
15:35:28 <CraigC> maybe someone in-basin logs it to confirm
15:35:30 <Dave from B™> CraigC, is more of a shape guy....take Sasquatch, for example:)
15:35:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger ns
15:35:51 <CraigC> Dave from B™, lol.... yeah, squint and find out what appears
15:36:24 <Lori S> You guys are funny
15:36:52 <ynpvisitor999®> ldgordon got that Bulger already
15:36:58 <CraigC> hey Sam
15:37:07 <Sam> Back
15:37:16 <Sam> And I just ran my fastest 5K yet
15:37:22 <Sam> Hey Craig
15:37:23 <CraigC> how fast?
15:37:36 <Sam> 26:32
15:37:43 <CraigC> good job
15:38:01 <Sam> On the stationary bike now
15:40:51 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off. Enjoy the Grotto-Rocket steam
15:41:08 <Sam> Bye Jarno
15:42:10 <CraigC> cya Jarno
15:42:11 <Lori S> Oh, and Dave, the times I gave on the JBOs I saw were just when I saw it. Could have been lower before then. But were after it had been in overflow for the cycle.
15:42:17 <Dave from B™> I'm also heading out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:42:23 <CraigC> cya dave
15:42:34 <Lori S> Bye Dave
15:42:37 <Dave from B™> Yeah, it is best to continually monitor something to get more info
15:42:39 <Cooper> Dave from B™, and ynpvisitor999®, bye
15:42:55 <Dave from B™> That is why asking others can help
15:43:28 <Lori S> Tom and I had a good talk at the post office one day. :)
15:43:50 <Dave from B™> Tom C is a good guy
15:43:50 <Casey> Good afternoon
15:44:00 <Lori S> He is
15:44:24 <Lori S> Hi Casey
15:45:01 <Cooper> Casey, hi
15:45:13 <Casey> Hi Lori, Cooper
15:53:01 <Cooper> OT
16:01:04 <Joe> Katie I cant seem to be able to take the Cam, are you in mobile?
16:01:23 <Katie> Yes. I'll hit the release button
16:01:30 <Katie> Released
16:01:38 <Joe> tks
16:05:46 <Sam> Storm about to come through
16:05:54 <Sam> Or already is
16:18:59 <Sam> OF
16:31:45 <ynpvisitor22> Raindrops keep falling on the cam
16:36:35 <ynpvisitor22> But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red, Grand is for me 'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining', Because Grand is for me
16:41:02 <Lori S> I left the office for a bit and missed a serenade
16:41:37 <Lori S> And a downpur, apparently
16:41:45 <Lori S> *downour
16:41:52 <ynpvisitor22> :)
16:41:54 <Lori S> haha... *downpour
16:43:06 <ynpvisitor22> Dave's keyboards are an infectious disease
16:52:28 <Lori S> I thought it was Linda's keyboard?
16:52:43 <Lori S> :)
16:53:22 <Lori S> So are there still plans to put a wiper on the bubble over the cam?
16:54:20 <ynpvisitor22> There is a wiper, they have never hooked it up
16:54:33 <Lori S> Ah
17:18:49 <CraigC> wb Craig
17:20:06 <ynpvisitor22> You always talk to yourself?/
17:20:38 <Lori S> wb Craig
17:21:37 <CraigC> Craig doesn't always talk to himself, but when he does, he replies in 3rd person. :)
17:22:50 <CraigC> :grand:
17:26:13 <ynpvisitor22> ~8
17:28:34 <ynpvisitor22> ~10
17:48:33 <CraigC> OF on static
17:49:00 <CraigC> wow, my cam was frozen
17:55:22 <ynpvisitor94> Think when they replace the "defective" housing, the wiper will work?
17:59:10 <ynpvisitor22> If it is a software controllable housing (I have no idea) then probably yes, If it requires a control station and wires, I would guess no.
18:12:54 <Joe> Aurum
18:37:29 <ynpvisitor55> Oh missed aurum
18:40:11 <LindaG(19)> Oh now I can have a reasonable Yellowstone visit number too
18:40:57 <Joe> !9 days!!! that is forever :)
18:41:23 <Joe> 19*
18:41:24 <LindaG(19)> 😋 it is forever
18:41:56 <LindaG(19)> It's better than thr 395 that I had
18:42:55 <LindaG(19)> How was the cam today?
18:44:44 <Joe> It has down 29 times, less than 1/3 of the other days
18:46:10 <Kevin L™🌵> 3 Aurums today and I haven't seen any of them. :p
18:46:32 <LindaG(19)> The cam froze on mine this morning ☹
18:47:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Gee, it is National Egg Day. I should have fed the chickens something special.
18:48:33 <LindaG(19)> 🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚
18:55:04 <Joe> Nothing better than a duck-tape installation :)
18:55:48 <Joe> Red-Green would be proud
19:03:54 <LindaG(19)> You can see the spider web when sun reflects off it
19:25:13 <ynpvisitor22> rainbow!!
19:30:51 <Ryan(119)> Oh, hey, Churn has been erupting.
19:34:06 <Ryan(119)> Wouldnt it be something if Uncertain just erupted, followed by Sawmill, like it was exiting a deep drain?
19:36:56 <Ryan(119)> Wow, when did our focus get that bad?
19:37:54 <ynpvisitor22> Is that churn steaming near bulger
19:38:39 <Ryan(119)> Churn is the steam on the other side of the boardwalk opposite the river above Sprinkler
19:39:02 <ynpvisitor22> thanks
19:39:11 <Ryan(119)> So, look at Sprinkler, look past it to the other side of the river. Look past it to the boardwalk. Its dircetly behind the boardwalk itself.
19:39:21 <Ryan(119)> And we moved again :lol:
19:39:54 <ynpvisitor22> Dead center?
19:40:20 <Ryan(119)> Yes
19:40:27 <Ryan(119)> I am on a 35s delay.
19:40:38 <ynpvisitor22> thanks Ryan
19:40:43 <Ryan(119)> Sawmill is the faint steam in front of the BW and right of Churn.
19:40:59 <Ryan(119)> Tardy Geyser is in front of Sawmill, slightly right, with more steam.
19:41:20 <Ryan(119)> The wispy stream in front of Churn near the trees is not something I am familiar with.
19:41:30 <Ryan(119)> Any time :)
19:41:31 <ynpvisitor22> thanks for the locations
19:50:35 <ynpvisitor114> Nice to catch NG with no wait, didnt have time to post the fill and boiling
19:50:59 <Ryan(119)> Hi GG
19:51:03 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
19:51:08 <Ryan(119)> Whats the deal with Churn/Sawmill?
19:51:42 <Ryan(119)> Sounds like something is trying to happen, but with limited notes its hard to tell if its new activity
19:54:30 <GO GOGGLE> Churn has had eruptions not long before Spasmodic starts
19:54:42 <GO GOGGLE> So keep an eye out when Spasmo isnt erupting
19:54:48 <GO GOGGLE> ot now
19:56:06 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
20:04:39 <GO GOGGLE> Go bulgers hole
20:04:49 <Ryan(119)> Hey I can see it!
20:05:01 <Ryan(119)> Bulger 2005ns
20:14:38 <GO GOGGLE> Headed in
20:15:07 <ynpvisitor22> good night
20:15:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum is due
20:17:56 <ynpvisitor22> that should cover it
20:21:34 <GO GOGGLE> Dep is empty
20:22:16 <GO GOGGLE> Haha Kevin. I did see one today but i think 2h10m is too early
20:31:59 <ynpvisitor22> riverside

20:51:37 <ynpvisitor53> Kevin is not watching skating?
20:54:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I did go to the skid plate races. They sort of skate.
