05:02:03 <Rice> Is there any body out there?
05:23:01 <ynpvisitor33> can anybody hear me?
05:23:15 <ynpvisitor33> Hi Rice
05:23:16 <Rice> Yes
05:23:54 <Rice> Guess Cam has been down a while, all night?
05:23:56 <ynpvisitor33> Niel Diamond came to mind at your question ;)
05:24:08 <ynpvisitor33> Yes
05:24:12 <Rice> Coming to America?
05:24:19 <Rice> Today.....
05:24:41 <ynpvisitor33> Yes
05:24:46 <Rice> damn I am going to have that stuck in my head all day now!!
05:25:46 <Joe> At least it is a good one
05:26:35 <Rice> We were at a Graducation Party Saturday, they had a live band, and played a bunch of Neil Diamond Songs.
05:26:56 <Joe> nice
05:34:58 <Joe> Niel
05:36:17 <Rice> Wow that video is dated.
05:37:28 <Rice> I need to come up with an America themed playlist for my cross country trip this summer.
05:37:38 <Rice> Will drive my kids nuts!
05:38:10 <Joe> :):) Have fun with that!!
05:39:40 <Rice> 28 days till we leave.
05:44:51 <Joe> I'll Bet you are already packing :)
05:44:56 <Joe> Hi Craig
05:44:57 <Rice> The internet is an amazing thing, I googled "cross country road trip playlist", and got some many options
05:45:15 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:45:21 <CraigC> hey Rice
05:45:22 <Rice> Just finished putting new bearings in the camper.
05:46:37 <Rice> In 30 days I will be in Moab
05:47:42 <CraigC> hope Moab isn't overly hot
05:48:35 <Betty> morning Joe, Rice, CraigC
05:48:46 <CraigC> hey Betty
05:48:52 <Joe> Hi Betty
05:49:46 <Rice> CraigC, it will be crazy hot, but cant help that.
05:55:59 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning all
05:56:16 <Betty> morning CC
05:56:23 <ynpvisitorCC> No work for me this morning since I cannot access the controls
05:56:38 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Betty
05:57:01 <Joe> Hi CC
05:57:33 <CraigC> hey CC
05:57:46 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Joe and Craig
06:04:51 <Rice> Joe, my guys at the mill think i am nuts, walking around singing, "Were coming to America, Today"
06:05:39 <Rice> No politics, but is that the Anti Trump Theme Song?
06:06:20 <Joe> Ithink it is
06:18:36 <Joe> Rice take your kids past this new YNP entrancr sign (TIC)
06:20:20 <Betty> OF
06:48:27 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
06:48:46 <Joe> Hi Dave
06:48:56 <CraigC> is it? (in Sam Elliott voice)
06:49:06 <Betty> morrning Dave from B™
06:49:14 <CraigC> hey Dave
06:49:16 <lc> morning all
06:49:16 <Betty> hi lc
06:49:18 <CraigC> hey lc
06:49:30 <Joe> Hi lc
06:49:32 <lc> no cam today?
06:49:40 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
06:49:49 <Dave from B™> lc, it is time to start packing:)
06:50:00 <Joe> nope broke yesterday afternoon
06:50:17 <lc> would you believe Ma has the trunk packed.
06:50:32 <lc> did that yesterday.
06:50:33 <Dave from B™> haha. You leaving Tuesday?
06:50:41 <lc> yes
06:52:09 <Joe> Leave early and stop to soak in the Thermopolis hot springs
06:52:38 <Joe> It will feel good after a long trip
06:52:47 <lc> btw don't know what your schedule is but in case I don't see you later, the very best to T and ? from Ma and me.
06:52:55 <Dave from B™> With SB intervals short are you going to try for every eruption? Or, get one and enjoy the UGB the rest of the time?
06:53:25 <Dave from B™> THanks, lc. Taylor's fiance is Keaton. He's a good guy.
06:54:14 <lc> I would have bet on that.
06:55:43 <lc> Dave if SB keeps up these intervals I would like to try for every day eruption.
06:56:12 <lc> don't think I want to try for a night eruption.
06:56:28 <Dave from B™> I understand. When SB goes back to sleep there will be plenty of time for UGB.
06:58:02 <lc> that is my thinking, and not much in UGB I haven't seen a few times.
06:58:31 <Dave from B™> I hope you get to see Morning again.
06:59:17 <lc> I would like that.
06:59:51 <lc> what year was Morning active?
07:00:20 <Dave from B™> I think it was 2013
07:00:51 <Dave from B™> Yep...just checked GT
07:01:01 <lc> sounds right.
07:02:15 <lc> too bad Giant has gone back to sleep.
07:02:56 <lc> Giant was really a thrill for me last year.
07:04:50 <Dave from B™> Yeah. I was hoping to see it this year. I think F&M waking up is more likely this year but probably not consistent until your second trip this year.
07:05:25 <lc> I agree.
07:06:33 <lc> not sure how many gazers will be in this first trip
07:06:59 <lc> I know Donnie ann Betty wont be in.
07:09:51 <lc> not much to see, SO I will check in later.
07:19:44 <Dave from B™> bye lc
07:43:33 <ynpvisitor23> I see they are still fixing it.
08:02:50 <Dave from B™> Wow. A long Fountain interval and duration last night
08:54:17 <Lori S> Good Morning all. I see the cam hasn't had its Cracklin Oat bran this morning.
08:57:42 <ynpvisitor57> Dave should put a want add in the paper. Wanted whiz kid at network connections to trouble shoot web cam. Transportation, food, and lodging for one day included.
08:58:15 <ynpvisitor57> Send the bill to Forever X
08:58:46 <Lori S> I am in need of a Yellowstone year number for a router password. Already used 1872, 1891, 1904, 1916. Any ideas?
08:59:39 <Lori S> *guest password. trying to make it relevant
09:00:47 <Lori S> Hi Kevin
09:01:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
09:01:06 <Dave from B™> Pick the year wolves were reintroduced
09:01:24 <Kevin L™🌵> 1943
09:01:25 <Lori S> Good one Dave from B™, 199?
09:01:32 <Lori S> was it 93?
09:02:11 <Lori S> no, um,...
09:02:44 <Lori S> Ah, 1995. Thanks Google
09:02:54 <Dave from B™> 1995:)
09:03:27 <Lori S> How about one more year?
09:03:57 <ynpvisitor46> Steamboat 1964?
09:04:59 <Lori S> Now why didn't I think of that. Another good one.
09:05:06 <Lori S> Thanks guys :)
09:05:15 <Lori S> (gals?)
09:05:20 <ynpvisitor46> :thumbsup:
09:10:50 <Lori S> Dome on static?
09:14:30 <CraigC> here is an Aurum on static, help me figure out the time;
09:14:42 <CraigC>
09:14:55 <CraigC> 814?
09:16:21 <Lori S> CraigC, The Dome I just saw had 0915 as time stamp and it was 0910 irl
09:16:39 <CraigC> thanks
09:17:18 <CraigC> I edited to 812
09:17:26 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
09:18:12 <CraigC> Lori S, LMAO @ your Cracklin Oat Bran comment..... what did I start? ;)
09:18:37 <Lori S> CraigC, obviously not the cam LOL
09:18:56 <Lori S> And thx, now I know where Aurum is on static :)
09:19:00 <CraigC> I was debating driving the trailer up today, but I am seeing possible snow forecast
09:19:28 <Lori S> Yup. Above 6500 ft I think
09:19:39 <Katie> I'm still going, but I'm not towing.
09:19:53 <Lori S> Hi Katie
09:20:00 <Dave from B™> CraigC, try to catch the one next week and maybe we can bump into each other again
09:20:05 <Katie> G'morning
09:20:06 <CraigC> Lori S, we just nailed down the spot for Aurum the other day when we watched it live and then could verify it on static in 2 frames. All the other ones we speculated were probably steam form pump or maybe doublet
09:20:56 <CraigC> now we see that you can see the base of the eruption between the trees, not just steam floating through the branches
09:21:27 <CraigC> Dave from B™, so maybe I will leave Sunday or Monday
09:21:51 <Kevin L™🌵> All mailboxes beware!!!!
09:21:53 <CraigC> if I do, I am going to try and find a spot at Baker's Hole
09:22:03 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, seriously! :)
09:22:03 <Lori S> CraigC, I will be at Norris Sat or Sun if that matters. LOL
09:22:27 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, haha
09:22:50 <Katie> How often is a site at Baker's Hole empty this time of year for a late arrival? Anyone know? I was thinking about that. I usually boondock somewhere outside the Park on my arrival night during campground full season (as now).
09:23:05 <CraigC> Lori S, I doubt I would make it there on Sunday even if I do leave that day. I would most likely spend all day learning how to set up the trailer there
09:23:08 <Dave from B™> We are spending Mon and tues nite at Roosevelt touring Upper Loop and Lamar
09:23:16 <Dave from B™> Wed-Sat night at OF
09:23:17 <Lori S> Not sure but I would guess they fill fast. Small CG right near toen
09:23:44 <Lori S> *town
09:23:46 <CraigC> if Bakers is full, then I will go try Rainbow Point
09:24:19 <CraigC> they don't take reservations
09:24:31 <Lori S> You guys know you can camp in trailers in the city parks in town?
09:24:42 <CraigC> really????
09:24:46 <Lori S> meaning the snow storage areas middle of most blocks along the alleys
09:24:55 <CraigC> wow
09:24:56 <Katie> I'm sure you're right, Lori. I've never even tried there. Eagle Creek (Jardine Rd. outside of Gardiner) can be good earlier in the season when Mammoth is full. I've never failed to get a site early in the morning on my entry day.
09:25:27 <Katie> I thought boondocking prohibition was enforced in West. I've never boondocked right in town. But if that's legal at the city parks, I just need a place to park legally overnight.
09:25:46 <Lori S> i mean, it's leagl to park a trailer there anyway. just don'y bump out slide outs
09:27:16 <Katie> I just sleep in the back of my Jeep. But Dad once tried to sleep in his van parked on a street in West, because he had not known that the condos my aunt has a time share at don't allow dogs. So, he was going to spend the night in the van with the dogs. But that might have been condo security that gave him a bad time...
09:27:16 <Lori S> Good spot by where I live. center of alley, south side, middle of Geyser, Madison, Hayden, Firehole block behind the Pioneer Motel
09:27:33 <CraigC> Lori S, so is Boundary Street a good place to look, or back on the west end of town?
09:28:39 <Lori S> west end of town is best. just don't block people's access to their proerty
09:29:02 <CraigC> Lori S, I see eaxactly where you say on google
09:29:08 <Cooper> Morning again everyone
09:29:15 <CraigC> hey Cooper
09:29:22 <Katie> Cool. Thanks. Wouldn't dream of blocking any driveways or access to any private property (including business, of course).
09:29:28 <Lori S> I will check about the actual camping part. Police told me it's OK to park RVs overnight but I'm not sure they said OK to actually camp. I better check.
09:29:53 <CraigC> are there many mailboxes in the alley?
09:30:03 <Cooper> OF
09:30:06 <Lori S> LOL. None at all.
09:30:36 <Lori S> But people stay in RVs by us all the time and never get booted.
09:30:41 <Dave from B™> haha. Beartooth Pass is closed AGAIN
09:31:06 <Dave from B™> Guess what happened on my way home last night?
09:31:11 <Katie> I arrive 10:30-11:00 and am gone by about 4:30am. Just park, nap, and get in the Park early. Register at a site for the rest of my trip first day. Usually end up taking a nap that afternoon.
09:31:11 <CraigC> Lori S, where is the closest dispursed camping around West?
09:31:21 <CraigC> Dave from B™, not another deer?
09:31:25 <Katie> You did not get hit by another deer, did you, Dave from B™?
09:32:05 <Cooper> wait Dave from B™'s car got hit by a deer?
09:32:23 <CraigC> I think it was the other way around
09:32:50 <Katie> Anyone who has had it happen to them knows that the deer do the colliding.
09:33:02 <CraigC> deer was leaning up against a mailbox....
09:33:22 <Cooper> Dave, did you car get totaled
09:33:36 <Dave from B™> A deer passed in front of me
09:33:44 <Dave from B™> Total damage was 5750
09:33:55 <Lori S> CraigC, by disbursed camping you mean...?
09:34:05 <Lori S> Dave from B™, Whoa
09:34:07 <CraigC> deer ate its Cracklin Oat Bran, then showed you, huh
09:34:08 <Cooper> You got lucky-ish
09:34:48 <CraigC> Lori S, in the woods, free
09:35:07 <Lori S> Katie, you are welcome to nap in your jeep near us. I would bet no one will even notice back there.
09:35:55 <Katie> That's great, Lori. Thanks. The area you said earlier?
09:36:46 <CraigC> has anyone talked to Joe this morning?
09:37:22 <CraigC> ooops, I did.... OMH
09:39:40 <Lori S> CraigC, haha on the COB. And closest I know of is dirt road to Beaver Creek cabin. I think there is also some near the ID/MT state line somewhere
09:40:10 <Lori S> Katie, yes. on the side of the alley rigth behind the Pioneer Motel
09:42:46 <Lori S> Tour busses park back there a lot.
09:42:55 <Lori S> mini busses, I mean
09:43:45 <Lori S> watch for dog poop :( (we pick up ours)
09:46:07 <Eric> Morning
09:46:24 <Lori S> Hi Eric
09:46:28 <Cooper> Hi Eric
09:47:46 <CraigC> hey Eric
09:47:59 <Dave from B™> Just as you say watch for dog poop, I'm opening a tootsie roll...nice timing:)
09:48:12 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
09:49:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Beats deer poop Dave.
09:50:00 <CraigC> Dave from B™, what other animals like to pass near you?
09:50:05 <ynpvisitor94> 7
09:50:30 <Lori S> Dave from B™, no problem
09:50:30 <Eric> ok...I have gotten in 26 miles of power walking since marathon is done :-P
09:50:43 <CraigC> Eric, good job
09:51:01 <Eric> Only took me 4 days to do a marathon :-D
09:56:13 <Lori S> So, we were able to take down the bird's nest I mentioned (no eggs). The robin rebuilt in the nearby spruce tree, thiugh, so it's flying into the office wondow again as of today.
09:56:34 <Lori S> Just gonna leave it be this time.
09:58:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Well at least I can watch the Chama train leave today
09:58:36 <Lori S> Chama train?
09:58:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Steam train
09:59:07 <Kevin L™🌵>
09:59:55 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
10:00:18 <Lori S> off till after lunch c ya
10:00:28 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, how cool
10:00:42 <Cooper> bye Lori S
10:00:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Ugh! Those cams are down too! :P
10:01:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Now they are back
10:01:46 <Rice> what time does train leave?
10:02:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Any minute now.
10:02:22 <Eric> bye lori
10:02:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Moving
10:03:51 <Eric> Dang those coal trains burn dirty
10:04:10 <Eric> That is a lot of black smoke coming out it's stack
10:05:10 <Kevin L™🌵> A lot of that is steam.
10:05:56 <Eric> some very black steam :-D
10:06:06 <Kevin L™🌵> My Grandson loves to watch that one.
10:06:30 <Eric> I compare it to the 4449 which has some pretty pure white smoke
10:06:40 <Eric> steam
10:06:49 <CraigC> which camera are you watcing on that page
10:06:59 <Eric> The train already left Craig
10:07:15 <CraigC> oh, lol
10:07:48 <CraigC> story of my life
10:08:00 <Kevin L™🌵> It goes from the south to the north cam. Comes back about 1600-1620.
10:08:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Friday there will be 2 trains, one of which will be a freight.
10:08:46 <CraigC> I can hear coyotes howling up on the hill behind my house
10:08:58 <Eric> go out and howl with them :-D
10:09:07 <Dave from B™> CraigC, this is my second animal casualty of my career. A rabbit was the other decades ago
10:09:10 <CraigC> they'll never come back
10:09:50 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I was referring to when you said the deer passed in front of you.... as in pooped
10:10:03 <Kevin L™🌵> It looks extra smoky in the morning since it had been sitting for a few hours keeping the boiler hot. Once they throttle up the ashes and cinder are blown out. Coming back it is less by far.
10:11:10 <Dave from B™> haha CRaigC
10:11:30 <Dave from B™> We hear coyotes behind us most weeks
10:13:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is 4449 in a workout Eric.
10:15:52 <Eric> That was pre-rebuild though
10:15:59 <Eric> I think it burns a lot cleaner now
10:16:14 <Eric> But I have never seen it at full throttle like that since rebuild :-D
10:16:39 <Kevin L™🌵> It will still do that.
10:17:06 <Eric> Ahhh, makes sense...thanks Kevin.
10:19:34 <Dave from B™> Any word on what today's cvam problem is?
10:19:53 <Kevin L™🌵> When they have a heavy load it will blow out more smoke. Starting out usually requires a bit more throttle. Chama is the total worst case since it has been sitting. It is just starting, and there is a heavy grade.
10:20:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Last I heard it may be a Centrylink issue.
10:23:49 <Eric> I thought joe said he could see signal strength still on the wireless?
10:23:58 <Eric> If he can reach that, then it would be a cam issue
10:24:48 <Eric> But I might be mistaken about many problems over the last few weeks :-(
10:29:21 <CraigC> off for a bike ride, bb
10:31:21 <Dave from B™> Someday, we can revisit my bike accident at OF many years ago...stay on your bike, CraigC!
10:31:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey I just drive them, I don't know what makes them work!
10:31:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Rock or deer Dave?
10:33:07 <Dave from B™> Daisy junction benches
10:34:16 <Kevin L™🌵> That is worse than the rock!
10:34:56 <Kevin L™🌵> They are on the way down to OF to work on the cam.
10:38:39 <Eric> Thanks Kevin
10:40:03 <Dave from B™> Peopel will do anything for a job. An applicant said he had a clean driving record. Later, we decided to hire him provided he had a clean driving record. After a few days he finally sent it to us......4 pages of violations. Liar Liar Liar!
10:41:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Just getting someone to show up on time was a chore.
10:43:33 <Eric> Wow....good thing you checked dave
10:44:00 <Eric> Why bother even sending it to you at that point?
10:44:20 <Dave from B™> I have no idea
10:44:49 <Eric> Dumb and untruthful....not a good combination
10:44:55 <Dave from B™> Meanwhile, my staff is exhausted being shorthanded for a month now and the busy season is upon us. I feel guilty for Taylor and I being gone next week.
10:45:59 <Dave from B™> And, a driver warehouse guy needs to be trustworthy or he can rob us blind
10:46:17 <Eric> Yep...that is a tough position
10:47:13 <Dave from B™> We even paid 2 guys to do second interviews by actually going on our Bozeman run and they both declinded the job after seeing how hard it was. And we told them up front what to expect.
10:47:47 <Katie> Do you do background checks?
10:47:51 <Eric> Sometimes you need to throw some more perks in the pot with a tight labor pool
10:48:21 <Eric> Think outside the box with things that don't cost a lot, but might tilt the balance to attracting people.
10:48:45 <Eric> Like free soda at work or catered breakfast twice a week
10:48:52 <ynpvisitor90> You may regret Taylor and you both being gone. Perhaps rethink that
10:49:04 <Dave from B™> Might need to try something else. Thanks Eric
10:49:35 <Eric> Yep...sometimes small things can attract good people. They show you are willing to go the extra mile for them.
10:50:56 <Eric> All you can drink coffee and donuts
10:51:47 <ynpvisitor90> Pay them more
10:52:00 <Dave from B™> WE don't do background checks but we do look at social media and contact former employers
10:53:00 <ynpvisitor90> People want bigger paychecks, not donuts
10:53:29 <Eric> Yes, more pay is good....but when on equal footing, some extras can tilt it for prospective employees
10:53:46 <Katie> My husband has had 4 background checks in the last 6 months. Everyone else is doing them... He ended up resigning from his seasonal job with the state, resigning from a part time job, accepting a full time job, getting another job offer, resigning from the one he had accepted and accepting the last all in the same day a couple months ago.
10:53:53 <Eric> I assume Dave is paying competitive wages.
10:54:01 <Dave from B™> I've already raised pay. It can go no higher at this point.
10:54:12 <Dave from B™> $17/hour for this position
10:54:59 <Katie> Then a month into the new job, he ended up in ER with back trouble and they wanted a doctor to sign a "full capable to return" form - and doc said he does not recommend. So. Back to one of the previous jobs, but a new background check.
10:55:25 <Katie> sometimes it really doesn't matter how high the wage is - some people just won't do WORK
10:56:53 <Katie> So, now he's back to a hub driver for Autozone - and they do background checks for that position, so a driving position for your company seems reasonable...
10:57:56 <Dave from B™> Back trouble for our open position is NOT recommended
10:58:20 <Katie> I meant that you doing a background check for drivers is reasonable - everyone else does it
10:58:36 <Dave from B™> Who does them?
11:00:39 <Eric> I could expect a background check if they are working with high value cargo independently.
11:00:55 <Katie> Some of them were just he filled out form and they use background check services. Some of them, he had to go to courthouse and be fingerprinted and background check run there.
11:01:03 <Eric> You don't want an honest face crook wanting into your company.
11:01:35 <Eric> walking...not wanting :-D
11:02:36 <Katie> High value cargo independently or just even access to warehouses... In the case of one of Matt's job's, it was working in schools installing, among other things, security and lock-down systems (that was the most thorough background check).
11:04:51 <Dave from B™> I have security canmeras everywhere but if something is missing it takes a LOT of effort to track it down
11:04:55 <Katie> ...and drug tests, too! So your inventory doesn't turn into someone's next fix.
11:37:01 <Cooper> BH
11:37:39 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
11:38:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Long Indy
11:38:50 <Cooper> 28 min, wow, it was'nt 28 seconds
11:46:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Those make me nervous
11:54:05 <ynpvisitor110> so we have Bh Indicator and BH Indiactr?
11:54:19 <ynpvisitor110> so we have Bh Indicator and BH Indicator?
11:54:41 <ynpvisitor110> once of which is Bulger
11:56:08 <Dave from B™> I picked the wrong week to continue driving..just narrowly avoided getting T boned on my way to lunch
11:56:34 <Katie> Sheesh!
11:57:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Deer's relative?
11:57:27 <Katie> Accomplice - partner-in-crime
11:58:58 <Dave from B™> Someone ran a red light that hasd been red for over 3 seconds. I'm thinking they didn't even see the traffic signal
11:59:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I told you to drive that truck
12:00:05 <Dave from B™> And, I was driving Taylor's car
12:02:22 <Eric> I almost got hit by a truck this morning too!
12:03:07 <Dave from B™> Must be summer
12:18:54 <Eric> But I was walking and it was some jerkwad that didn't want to stop for a crosswalk!
12:19:14 <Katie> Yikes!
12:19:15 <Dave from B™> Glad you are ok
12:19:51 <Eric> too! He was driving a pretty large it wouldn't have been pleasant.
12:23:20 <Kevin L™🌵> For all of you on the road today:
12:44:23 <Betty> sigh
12:57:21 <Kevin L™🌵> ein großer Seufzer
12:57:41 <Betty> it was. hi Kevin
12:58:00 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
13:03:28 <Eric> Interesting quick drop in echinus temp on 6/15
13:06:44 <Betty> hey Eric
13:08:48 <ynpvisitor80> Has the cam been down all day?
13:09:00 <Katie> Yup - since yesterday afternoon
13:09:06 <Betty> any ideas for a good motel in Portland. We need easy access to dining/bars/brewery. means with no need of the car
13:09:39 <Kevin L™🌵> They are trying prozac now.
13:09:40 <Kat> Well, darn. I guess we have heard nothing today.
13:10:22 <Kevin L™🌵> DaveK went down to look at it.
13:10:40 <Kat> hahahaha!
13:10:46 <Betty> what is prozac?
13:11:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Where do you work Betty?
13:11:33 <Katie> Betty, I just texted my husband to ask if he remembers the name of the nice downtown hotel in Portland. There are several, but there is one in particular...
13:11:51 <Katie> He doesn't remember - I'll ask my cousins who live there.
13:12:04 <Betty> I found it Kevin :-)
13:12:39 <Betty> Eric lives in Portland, so he may know some good places
13:12:58 <Betty> thx Katie
13:13:45 <Katie> I know my cousin and her husband have had good suggestions when we have been there, but I don't remember any offhand, now.
13:14:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric should be able to help.
13:15:34 <Betty> at least we want to meet him, so he should be able to help :-)
13:16:03 <Eric> :-D I am back from phone...Hi Betty
13:16:45 <Eric> You are going to have a car I assume, so you need a parking spot, but just don't want to drive a lot
13:17:14 <Betty> yup
13:17:32 <Betty> beer and drive don´t work together
13:18:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Sometimes doesn't work with walking either.
13:18:26 <Betty> haha, true
13:20:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I will never forget that new kid that went from the 3.2 beer in basic training to a couple of Christmas Beers in Germany.
13:20:53 <Eric> I really like the Pearl District of Portland, but Valet parking will add $38/night
13:21:08 <Eric> Hampton Inn & Suites in the Pearl District is nicely located
13:21:13 <Eric> Seems to get good reviews
13:21:47 <Eric> Pearl District will get you in the right location for good food and beer
13:21:59 <Kevin L™🌵> We stayed in a Hampton Inn in Denver and it was nice.
13:22:05 <Eric> But pretty much anyplace in Portland will land you near a brewery :-D
13:23:22 <Lori S> Katie, sorry to jump in on the conversation, but The Paramount?
13:23:38 <Katie> Yes, I think that's the one I'm thinking of
13:24:22 <Eric> Public transportation is good in Portland and I would suggest a Trip to Powells Books while you are here :-D
13:24:34 <Lori S> I got to stay there as a charter bus driver back in the day.
13:24:40 <Eric> I would like to take you and Thomas out to Edgefield Brewing too :-D
13:25:14 <Eric> Maybe combined with a hike up Multnomah Falls if you haven't done that
13:26:10 <Betty> sounds good
13:26:11 <Dave from B™> Betty, you rate pretty well. Eric always avoids me in Portland:D
13:26:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't know Dave, I think he just told her to take a hike...
13:27:55 <Dave from B™> hahaha
13:28:06 <Lori S> LOL
13:28:38 <Betty> we have seen Multnomah Falls, but if your hike is moderate to easy ( ;-) ) it will even work for me
13:30:33 <Eric> We can chat about it later...or just sit and enjoy a pleasant time at edgefield :-D
13:30:54 <Eric> ok...gotta go harry potter: wizards unite with my back in a bit
13:31:10 <Cooper> bye Eric
13:31:20 <Lori S> bye Eric
13:31:30 <Kevin L™🌵> bye
13:32:15 <Betty> later, Eric
13:32:45 <Lori S> Craig & Katie, I checked at lunch and i was wrong about camping in the city parks in town. Parking OK. Camping not. So mny people camp in them I just figured it was OK.
13:33:19 <Lori S> But I was given the suggestion of the commercial truck pullouts north of town... maintained by the state not the town
13:34:19 <Lori S> And the closest free camping area is indeed near the state line off Hwy 20...Targhee Creek USFS road
13:35:38 <Katie> good to know. I sometimes consider parking overnight at the Quake Lake VC parking lot, but I always feel spooky around there, so I wouldn't sleep well.
13:39:39 <CraigC> Lori S, thanks!
13:41:13 <Lori S> Yeah, I wouldn't sleep well around Quake Lake either. Though we have camped at the Beaver Creek CG and it was nice.
13:41:25 <Dave from B™> Beaver Creek CG is awesome
13:41:27 <CraigC> any word on the webcam?
13:42:16 <Kevin L™🌵> It's a 419 Craig.
13:42:40 <Dave from B™> No words here, Craig. Just 1 letter X
13:42:54 <Lori S> CraigC, coincidentally, I just had the local CenturyLink dude in here. He's coming back to install some routers. I asked him and he siad ""Really? It's been down a lot?"
13:43:07 <Lori S> :p
13:43:30 <Lori S> Though he said they just provide the "pipe" not the attached equipment.
13:44:22 <Lori S> Dave from B™, haha on the X
13:45:56 <Dave from B™> CraigC, did you hire the driver who tried to T bone me at lunchtime?
13:47:10 <CraigC> Dave from B™, he said it was free.... what did he tell you?
13:48:25 <Dave from B™> Woohoo!!!!
13:48:43 <Dave from B™> CraigC, it was a close my heart going
13:49:07 <CraigC> I told him to make it worth your while
13:49:23 <CraigC> parking lot ie
13:50:15 <Betty> I can see!!!!
13:50:33 <Betty> choppy but moving
13:51:56 <ynpvisitor104> Not sure about this time of the year, but you can park in the forest outside Cook. Probably everything full now.
13:52:47 <ynpvisitor104> Nice camp ground up out of gardner, not too much, and we have parked in the horse parking in May with no trouble.
13:52:54 <Cooper> YAY, its a live streaming cam again
13:53:40 <ynpvisitor104> One by the lake outside west on the way to Idaho. Cost has gone up and it is full if the fishing is good.
13:54:27 <Kevin L™🌵> It's alive!
13:54:31 <ynpvisitor104> This time of year I would not go with out reservations. Long drive to find no place to stay.
13:54:49 <Dave from B™> Lots of places to boondock if you have to
13:54:50 <Kitt> hello
13:54:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I suppose this means I have to go to work.
13:54:57 <ynpvisitor104> I do not see flames, only smoke.
13:55:05 <Betty> hi Kitt
13:55:16 <Lori S> Hi Litt
13:55:20 <Lori S> oh my
13:55:24 <Lori S> Hi KITT
13:55:24 <Katie> I do it all the time. Always works out. I boondock outside the Park when I arrive - driving over after work. I always manage to find a site somewhere next morning.
13:55:31 <Betty> hi chancellor
13:55:37 <ynpvisitor104> Maybe in a car, with a trailer or motor home not as easy.
13:55:39 <Kitt> I have a question. Was an indy text sent this morning? I didn't get one, so maybe I am not getting rained out texts
13:55:59 <Katie> No text was sent. Cam just started streaming a few minutes ago
13:56:18 <Lori S> UBB on the cam again only black
13:56:19 <Kitt> ok
13:56:33 <Katie> No, I wouldn't do it towing a trailer. I just sleep in the back of my Jeep.
13:56:37 <Lori S> But I am so happy to see it!
13:56:38 <ynpvisitor104> Tent spots are easier to find in the park.
13:58:31 <ynpvisitor104> Well, time for lunch. Enjoy people watching.
13:58:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't heard anything but I guess I can take the cam.
13:59:55 <Kevin L™🌵> It is official.
14:01:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like we have a new friend on the dome.
14:01:15 <ynpvisitor65> OK, now that is funny!
14:01:17 <Lori S> Go Kevin!
14:01:59 <ynpvisitor65> Smacked by a falling flagpole :)
14:02:20 <Cooper> what is that black spot?
14:02:39 <Katie> Spider cocoon?
14:03:08 <CraigC> weird
14:03:17 <Lori S> Loogie hocked from the widow's walk?
14:03:21 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a black hole that the aliens enter through to drink the Yellowstone lava.
14:03:34 <CraigC> hey Linda
14:03:35 <LindaG> Yay cam back up
14:03:38 <Lori S> :D
14:03:42 <Betty> :i::i:
14:03:47 <LindaG> CraigC, Hi all
14:03:48 <Cooper> LindaG, Hi
14:03:55 <Lori S> Hi Linda
14:04:20 <LindaG> Cooper, Lori S, hi
14:04:33 <Lori S> Hey Cooper
14:04:55 <Cooper> Hi Lori
14:05:15 <LindaG> I thought maybe beehive
14:05:28 <LindaG> But I'll settle for cam
14:06:02 <ynpvisitor71> Cam up for a visit?
14:06:22 <ynpvisitor71> We should take bets on how long this time.
14:06:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Wait till you see presets Linda
14:06:57 <LindaG> They changed? they are better?
14:07:04 <Katie> Did they change the presets?
14:07:21 <ynpvisitor71> And wow if that is inside, that big black blob
14:07:29 <Kevin L™🌵> They must have moved the cam
14:07:35 <ynpvisitor71> What a mess
14:08:03 <ynpvisitor71> A quick tour will tell you if it was moved
14:08:22 <Lori S> Go Tour
14:08:40 <Katie> It does "feel" like it is further east
14:08:40 <Kevin L™🌵> OF window
14:08:48 <ynpvisitor71> If they moved the cam without cleaning inside the housing, yikes
14:08:54 <Lori S> after OF of course
14:09:39 <Kevin L™🌵> That was OF closeup
14:10:25 <LindaG> Solo all the presets are off because they moved cam?
14:10:35 <LindaG> *so
14:11:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I would guess that
14:11:47 <CraigC> based on some FB discussions;
14:11:53 <Lori S> Another speck above OF
14:12:00 <LindaG> Lol the gang that couldnt shoot straight
14:12:34 <LindaG> Definitely not seeing the buildings as much on this view
14:14:30 <LindaG> Well if it stays up presets can be reset
14:15:46 <ynpvisitor50> zooming takes away the blob?
14:16:25 <ynpvisitor50> swing around to see where it is on the roof
14:17:42 <ynpvisitor50> has the cam looked down basin yet?
14:18:06 <CraigC> AL
14:19:13 <ynpvisitor50> I guess they want Joe to make another panorama
14:19:52 <CraigC> "they"?
14:19:57 <ynpvisitor52> What? did they move the Camera?
14:20:31 <ynpvisitor50> it? Them? Who knows anymore, the power that be
14:20:41 <ynpvisitor50> powers that be
14:20:58 <CraigC> park service?
14:21:10 <CraigC> or GT?
14:21:22 <ynpvisitor50> the ones that left the blob inside the housing
14:21:28 <CraigC> LOL
14:21:39 <ynpvisitor50> have we looked down basin?
14:21:51 <Lori S> <<<<<<
14:21:57 <Lori S> ?
14:22:12 <CraigC> wb Joe
14:22:23 <ynpvisitor50> not sure what there is to see in this view now
14:24:20 <Joe> Remember yesterday when I said "wouldn't be ironic if after they moved the cam because the tree might fall down the the wind and flag would break the Flag pole?
14:24:31 <Joe> Well it DID
14:24:51 <ynpvisitor50> they are minus a flag pole on the Inn?
14:25:01 <Katie> Yup, you said it. And yup.
14:25:03 <Joe> yes
14:25:12 <CraigC> OMH
14:25:17 <ynpvisitor50> wow, that is not good
14:25:27 <ynpvisitor50> so wind blew it over, no trees up on the roof to hit it
14:25:39 <ynpvisitor50> so can we not look down basin anymore?
14:26:02 <Joe> thr flag pole snapped in the wind and smacked utecwebcam causing it to unplug
14:26:25 <ynpvisitor50> so it might be OK now?
14:26:32 <Lori S> So, nature broke the cam.
14:26:51 <ynpvisitor50> no, nature unplugged it
14:26:56 <ynpvisitor50> something else broke it
14:27:10 <Katie> Okay now. For now. ;) Cross your fingers that this was the last of the "one thing after another"
14:27:16 <ynpvisitor50> that looks like the same spot
14:27:54 <ynpvisitor50> how ironic is that? The cam in the tree is still standing
14:28:02 <Lori S> ynpvisitor50, :thumbsup:
14:28:32 <Joe> #50 :):):0
14:28:51 <ynpvisitor50> zoo is still blurry
14:28:54 <ynpvisitor50> zoom
14:29:15 <CraigC> are people working on it right now?
14:29:16 <ynpvisitor50> so the blob is only in OF view. That is some kind of weird justice
14:29:43 <Lori S> ynpvisitor50, :heart:
14:29:52 <Joe> Looks like all they had to do was plug it back in, no new panorama needed :) whew
14:30:06 <ynpvisitor50> very glad of that for you Joe
14:30:48 <ynpvisitor50> I wonder why they cannot fix the zoom though
14:31:55 <Lori S> Whao nice OL view
14:32:05 <Lori S> *Whoa
14:33:09 <Lori S> Just no place left to tinkle out of view anymore. :p
14:33:15 <Joe> Kevin, is that you operating?
14:33:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.
14:34:10 <Joe> Did they move the cam location, or just plug it back in
14:34:44 <Cooper> looks like they just plugged it back in
14:35:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I think they left it but the flagpole moved it a bit.
14:35:46 <Joe> Ah! ok too bad about the pole
14:35:49 <Terry> What is this strange movement on my screen? Oh! Wait! The cam is working!!!!
14:36:21 <Joe> I did not mean to predict anything bad
14:37:17 <Joe> Ijust imagined the pole breaking in that wind the way it was shaking the camera yesterday
14:37:41 <Kevin L™🌵> It was shaking
14:38:50 <Joe> I hope no one got hurt nor that therec was damage when the pole came down
14:39:09 <Joe> was no*
14:39:10 <Lori S> Joe, I was thinking the same
14:39:56 <Lori S> I mean, did it break and fall on the roof or break and fall all the way down
14:42:15 <Joe> I have no Idea, heard nothing other than the Flag pole snapped
14:43:11 <Kevin L™🌵> It would be fun to review those last few frames.
14:43:20 <Lori S> indeed
14:44:21 <Joe> I deleted my recordings but it must be on the capture!
14:45:17 <Lori S> Link?
14:45:35 <Lori S> I mean to the capture
14:46:18 <Joe> Lower right click on GOSA you tube
14:46:53 <Lori S> duh
14:47:17 <Lori S> I'm so with it
14:48:33 <Joe> I saw nothing it just went out
14:49:40 <LindaG> Ok im back. I was on marsh by water when a lightning storm moved it. Had to leave quick.
14:50:00 <Joe> I don't think I'll make any casual observations about bad things happening for a while :):thumbsdown:
14:54:43 <Katie> fast moving cloud!
14:57:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Aliens looking for the black hole
14:58:15 <Dave from B™> Another errand completed without an accident
14:59:22 <Kevin L™🌵> A bit nervous Dave?
14:59:24 <LindaG> So the cam got moved because the flag pole snapped and hit cam and unplugged it? I read the log and trying to put it all together.
14:59:51 <Katie> Linda, check your email, but that's the gist of it.
14:59:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Flagpole fell over and hit the cam.
15:00:19 <Dave from B™> Somehow, CraigC has to be responsible. Can you guys/gals figure out how to blame him for it?:)
15:00:21 <LindaG> Oh ok. Just got home I'll read email thx
15:00:40 <Eric> Dave's fault
15:00:54 <Eric> I heard dave was up on the roof once
15:00:59 <Lori S> Dave from B™, don't ride with Craig in his trailer or you'll be whomped with mailboxes.
15:01:10 <Dave from B™> I've never been there although I would love to sometime
15:01:14 <Eric> Did the flag raising and sabotaged the pole!
15:01:30 <Joe> Is CraigC somehow the cause of high winds?
15:01:31 <Eric> ohh, must have been another dave :-P
15:02:31 <Lori S> Dave, just talk to a bell person with a tip in your hand.
15:04:10 <CraigC> I've been accused of a lot of hot air.... but geez
15:04:30 <Dave from B™> haha
15:04:59 <CraigC> lion roaring
15:05:09 <CraigC> lion
15:05:55 <Betty> nice
15:06:14 <CraigC> can I take credit for Lion erupting if I get blamed for flagpole breaking?
15:06:25 <Betty> cam is still shaky
15:06:36 <Betty> no
15:06:41 <Cooper> nope
15:06:52 <CraigC> lc
15:07:05 <Dave from B™> absolutely not
15:07:23 <Katie> Nope. That's not how this works. That's now how any of this works. At all.
15:07:43 <CraigC> one way blame door, huh
15:07:54 <Dave from B™> Hey, Craig, I noticed your rides are getting longer.
15:08:16 <CraigC> Dave from B™, all the trails are dried out now
15:08:37 <CraigC> now I can string together 3 or 4 trails at a time
15:08:51 <Kevin L™🌵> He goes faster if a bison chases him.
15:08:57 <Cooper> I predict next Lion for 16:09 +/- 10 min
15:10:00 <ynpvisitor85> That's a bold prediction. The first interval after a major is usually a few minutes longer.
15:11:03 <ynpvisitor85> I predict the cam will still be operational from 16:00-16:30 so we can find out.
15:11:06 <Betty> I go with 1625 +- 10 miin
15:11:57 <Betty> seems this pole will not last longer
15:12:17 <Lori S> 85 has a good point
15:12:28 <Lori S> about the cam, I mean
15:14:53 <Cooper> I am changing my prediction to 16:13:50 +- 10 min
15:15:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> did you thank me for fixing the cam for you ... again?
15:15:43 <Dave from B™> Betty, World Cup is getting to the fun stage...knockout round starts Saturday
15:15:44 <LindaG> How strong were the winds yesterday?
15:16:24 <Betty> pole strong
15:16:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> oooh another BH eruption and a Bh
15:16:37 <Betty> yes Dave
15:16:42 <Lori S> Betty, :thumbsup:
15:17:33 <Joe> No idea but the cam was shaking badly and it did snap the Flag pole
15:18:21 <Joe> so Betty is right "pole strong" :)
15:19:43 <LindaG> 😊
15:20:15 <Betty> ;)
15:23:37 <Eric> broken pole strong
15:23:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Pole weak - Wind strong.
15:24:14 <Casey> Hi everybody. Glad to see the cam working.
15:24:17 <Betty> dome
15:25:16 <Eric> Hi Casey
15:25:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> so SB tomorrow?
15:26:17 <Eric> The average of the last 2 would put the next one on 6/22 @ 9:04 +- 3h
15:26:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Just bring a bag of Peanut M&Ms
15:27:03 <Kevin L™🌵> And a hardhat.
15:27:20 <Eric> Hockey mask Kevin
15:27:51 <Eric> Me at the next steamoat:$_1000x1000_$&$product=PartyCity/176141_02
15:28:12 <ynpvisitor85> I like that idea. Keep the lower platform open as a hard-hat-required zone.
15:28:21 <Cooper> LOL
15:28:31 <Cooper> ynpvisitor85, I agree
15:29:13 <Eric> Maybe I can get a bunch of those printed up with a picture of steamboat and sell them :-P
15:30:13 <Eric> and for those too cheap for the real thing:
15:30:40 <Cooper> LMAO
15:31:16 <Dave from B™> ERic, why do you look at me when you say that?:)
15:32:39 <Eric> could have saved some typing just using your name.
15:41:10 <Betty> OF
15:41:22 <ynpvisitor48> OF xoon
15:41:34 <ynpvisitor48> oops
15:45:18 <LindaG> That's something hanging in the web
15:46:17 <LindaG> Should have told them to clean web off cam
15:48:31 <Eric> and put a sticky trap in the housing for future spiders!
15:48:39 <ynpvisitor48> At least it is on the OF sise of Dome
15:48:53 <ynpvisitor48> side*
15:50:59 <ynpvisitor48> Daisy soon

16:07:34 <Betty> william was earlier. not sure if he´s still there
16:08:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> he is certainly making use of his gazing time
16:09:11 <CraigC> that cloud shadow is hauling butt
16:09:29 <ynpvisitor999®> I see the cam is up again. Power issue?
16:09:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> not sure when William has time to work :)

16:11:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, hope all is well .. or as well as it can be
16:12:31 <Kat> Cam still shaky!
16:13:37 <Betty> Artemisia was ie when cam got downbasin, exact time is hard to tell
16:14:23 <Joe1> #4 what did I do wrong??
16:15:10 <Kat> Joe, nothink that I know of
16:15:19 <Kat> nothing
16:15:35 <CraigC> daisy
16:15:50 <ynpvisitor4> you fixed it. :)
16:15:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> artie should at least be an ie on wc
16:16:01 <Kat> :daisy:
16:16:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> you cant tell when the flood starts
16:16:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> its like Oblong, cant tell the start time even from Grand
16:17:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks
16:19:49 <Kat> did not quit
16:21:31 <Cooper> Next Lion 17:20 +- 10 min
16:21:38 <ynpvisitor85> Looks like Cooper was right about Lion. *goes off to a corner to eat my words.
16:21:47 <Joe1> lion soon
16:22:02 <Joe1> oops
16:22:11 <Kat> :)
16:22:17 <ynpvisitor999®> are you an hour ahead, Joe :)
16:22:18 <ynpvisitor4> Joe1, I am still confused. should the 0405 Arty be there?
16:23:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> should at least have an ie
16:23:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> why, was it not on the replay?
16:24:08 <Joe1> oh! that where that went! thanks deleting
16:24:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> because of the questionable earlier one?
16:24:31 <ynpvisitor4> Phew! !!
16:25:17 <ynpvisitor4> GO STEAMBOAT, think he meant 1605 not 405
16:25:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah
16:26:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> Joe having a moment?
16:26:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> too many happy pills?
16:26:21 <ynpvisitor4> based on when it was entered, like at 1607
16:27:27 <Joe1> thanks 4 i entered it but wondered where it went so i entered it again.
16:27:37 <ynpvisitor4> 12 hour interval on the nose - arty would be easier to catch if that were the case
16:27:40 <Betty> William entered it in basin
16:28:26 <ynpvisitor4> good deal Joe1, I didn't think you were looking at captures at 4pm
16:28:52 <Joe1> yes Graham something like that :) too much sleep last night
16:30:40 <Joe1> old would be another flimsy excuse. :)
16:32:02 <Betty> that is too flimsy, Joe ;-)
16:32:25 <Kat> Not buying that one Joe!
16:33:06 <Joe1> :)
16:33:14 <CraigC> dang, that's my favorite excuse
16:33:42 <Betty> works for you, not for Joe :-D
16:34:26 <CraigC> not sure if I should feel honored or not
16:34:46 <Betty> hehehe
16:35:40 <Joe1> but I am somewhat old, older than Craig
16:37:54 <CraigC> I must smell older, or something
16:43:04 <Kat> lc
16:43:11 <Kat> LC
16:47:34 <Kat> Who's moving the cam?
16:48:31 <Joe1> not I
16:49:11 <Kat> Maybe they are working on the presets??
16:49:18 <Joe1> Dave said he was going to do presets
16:49:50 <Joe1> when he got to the office
16:49:58 <ynpvisitor85> If nothing else is going on, Aurum might be the best wildcard until OF window.
16:50:27 <Betty> dome ie
16:51:23 <Kat> Looks like it's preset work ...
16:51:41 <Betty> yep
16:53:18 <ynpvisitor85> I'm sure the end result will be much appreciated.
16:53:44 <Kat> Absolutely!
16:57:30 <Cooper> grrrr, bad computer
16:58:27 <CraigC> the Squatch preset
16:58:45 <Kat> Squatch is standing guard!
16:59:06 <ynpvisitor91> Dave out celebrating the win over Sweden?
16:59:36 <Kat> Good game!
17:00:24 <ynpvisitor91> I always thought that parking was for the lodge
17:01:32 <ynpvisitor91> so is it fixed for good, or just working?
17:01:50 <Katie> Time will tell
17:02:23 <ynpvisitor91> Someone needs to slip the bell hope 20 bucks and have then remove the webs.
17:02:39 <ynpvisitor91> hop
17:03:43 <ynpvisitor91> wow, close to 4th of July and people can set on the boardwalk and not get trampled.
17:05:28 <Betty> it is so shaky
17:05:45 <ynpvisitor...> I am glad it isn't just me
17:05:57 <Kat> It doesn't really look that windy!
17:06:07 <Betty> hi Kent, it´s been a while :-)
17:06:42 <ynpvisitor...> Hey B. I have been traveling and then trying to catch up.
17:07:29 <Betty> maybe they forced a griz to hold the cam in his claw on top of the Inn
17:08:45 <CraigC> they finished the boardwalk without Pence
17:09:03 <Betty> and the resolution is not as good as it used to be before failure
17:09:08 <Cooper> whooah
17:09:19 <Cooper> no black blob anymore
17:09:29 <Betty> whoohoo
17:09:38 <Betty> thanks!
17:09:55 <Cooper> who did that?
17:10:05 <Betty> not me :-)
17:13:19 <Betty> time to head out, have a great evening all with a working cam
17:13:29 <Cooper> bye Betty
17:13:54 <Kat> Bye Betty
17:19:53 <Kat> OF
17:20:18 <ynpvisitor...> Color
17:22:21 <Katie> Methinks the mounting brackets aren't secure/stable enough
17:22:49 <CraigC> aurum
17:23:30 <CraigC> polly entered aurum
17:23:33 <Cooper> Lion
17:23:36 <CraigC>
17:23:54 <CraigC> I was about to enter it from static
17:24:13 <Cooper> oops, did not mean to shout
17:24:41 <Katie> I just thought you had great enthusiasm. :)
17:24:48 <Cooper> I DO
17:24:51 <Kat> :)
17:24:54 <CraigC> here is Aurum on static;
17:24:55 <Cooper> ;)
17:25:00 <Katie> :)
17:25:41 <Cooper> So next lion 18:29:50 +/- 10 min, if the series is to continue
17:26:59 <CraigC> sprinkler
17:27:12 <Kat> :)
17:30:28 <ynpvisitor85> Grotto ie. I'm not sure if that's a recent development.
17:33:52 <CraigC> fast clouds
17:33:58 <CraigC> bulger
17:35:41 <CraigC> bulger was a minor, no?
17:36:12 <ynpvisitor85> didn't last long after you called it.
17:36:38 <Kat> I think so Craig
17:36:46 <CraigC> I edited it to minor
17:37:43 <Kat> Trouble....
17:39:15 <CraigC> church putting out steam
17:39:18 <CraigC> churn
17:40:59 <CraigC> I fried tofu before finding out my daughter used all the sriracha
17:42:30 <ynpvisitor85> any other good sauces in the cupboard?
17:43:06 <CraigC> some kind of thai sauce my daughter had, it's more sweet
17:43:40 <CraigC> sriracha mixed with hoison is really good with tofu
17:43:56 <CraigC> or hoisen?
17:44:19 <CraigC> hoisin
17:45:14 <CraigC> bukger
17:45:18 <CraigC> bulger
17:45:52 <CraigC> another minor
17:47:23 <ynpvisitor85> Soy sauce + lime juice has been a useful all-purpose marinade for me.
17:47:24 <CraigC> old tardy?
17:48:44 <ynpvisitor85> I could believe it but wish it would show more water jets.
17:49:24 <CraigC> I went full screen and I don't think so.... stuff is like a mirage when it is shaky
17:50:10 <ynpvisitor85> Maybe Crystal spring's steam is just blowing around in bunches?
17:50:27 <CraigC> ynpvisitor85, I think that, too
17:51:39 <CraigC> sprinkler
17:53:44 <CraigC> not sure how long I can watch this and not end up with motion sickness
17:55:20 <CraigC> bulger
17:55:31 <Kat> Bulger
17:55:48 <ynpvisitor85> As long as there aren't close-ups and I sit way back from my computer, it's been OK.
17:56:02 <CraigC> wow, a minor again
17:57:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger minors were aboiut 12m apart. majors more like 40m
17:57:24 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, thanks, new info for me
18:03:12 <CraigC> uh oh
18:03:19 <ynpvisitor105> what else is new
18:04:07 <CraigC> bulger

19:03:47 <ynpvisitor85> worth the snowy wait.
19:04:52 <Kat> :)
19:06:57 <LindaG> Well it would make me feel better about canceling if there were a blizzard in the next week. 😉
19:08:49 <Kat> Could happen!
19:10:12 <LindaG> Its snowing in Bozeman that where we were flying into
19:12:22 <Kat> Wow!
19:15:13 <LindaG> Areas in Montana above 6,000 ft might receive 2-6 inches tonight
19:16:37 <Kat> I was complaining about the heat all day!
19:19:22 <LindaG> Its warm and muggy here
19:20:50 <Kat> Same here - I hang out at home when its this hot!
19:25:11 <LindaG> Look at the snow fly
19:27:00 <Kat> it is summer tomorrow...
19:28:10 <LindaG> Yes Happy Summer Solstice!
19:28:49 <LindaG> So strange to think we will be losing light now.

19:44:41 <LindaG> It was failing
19:44:54 <Joe1> lion ie when cam came UP

19:46:05 <Kat> Oh, sorry Linda!
19:59:07 <CraigC> winter ie
19:59:37 <LindaG> It's taken a nasty turn
20:00:20 <Cooper> Looks like I got the 1826 Lion correct, so next lion at 2050+-10min
20:00:34 <LindaG> Cooper, yay
20:01:00 <Cooper> I finally figured out Lion, after 2 years
20:01:23 <LindaG> 👍
20:01:41 <Cooper> bleck on weather
20:01:53 <LindaG> Kat, what are you doing with the weather? Lol
20:02:02 <Kat> Woaah!
20:03:55 <Cooper(real)> I HATE my computer
20:03:56 <LindaG> Between weather, radio links, providers and flag poles Im surprised we see anything at all
20:05:07 <Cooper(real)> Ugggh, BBL

20:07:04 <ynpvisitor58> this will be my first summer to unpack in snow
20:07:34 <ynpvisitor58> guess I had better go ahead and put the snowboots in the vehicle
20:07:46 <LindaG> Yeah I was supposed to be there tomorrow, I can do without snow
20:07:54 <CraigC> ynpvisitor58, when are you going?

20:10:07 <Kitt> hey

20:10:54 <Kitt> I knew we had a chance for snow this weekend
20:11:07 <LindaG> High elevations are looking at snow
20:12:27 <Kat> Linda, are you going to be on while?
20:13:10 <LindaG> Maybe another half hour
20:13:45 <LindaG> Need me to take cam?
20:14:10 <LindaG> I could stay on till 11 our time
20:14:29 <Kat> If you could - I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
20:14:44 <Kat> See all in the AM
20:15:01 <LindaG> Ok. Are you coming back or should I just put on night view at 11.

20:51:15 <CraigC> feature above MC likes me
20:52:24 <Joe> Every time you mention a geyser the camera moves elsewhere, I did it to you many times :)
20:53:02 <Joe> not on purpose though :)
20:53:18 <CraigC> I know, it's funny though
20:53:30 <LindaGp> Oh I did it on purpose.😉

21:01:54 <ynpvisitor4> pretty soon we will have to change the # at the top
21:02:13 <Cooper(real)> Yesterday people were talking about SB every 18 years following the lunar nodal cycle
21:02:43 <LindaGp> I'm putting on night view unless someone wants to take it
21:03:07 <Cooper(real)> So 2018, 1983, does anyone else know any others of the top of their heads?

21:21:53 <joe1> yes Kevin he did
21:23:21 <joe1> I saw him do some have not tried them yet
21:24:45 <ynpvisitor51> It looks blurry
21:29:08 <joe1> Im 'sure the pole hitting the housing did more than unplug the camera
21:31:37 <Kevin L™🌵> He sent me an email wanting to. Don't think he realized it wasn't my shift.
