06:41:04 <Craig-phone> Hey folks
06:41:29 <Joe> Hi Craig
06:41:57 <Craig-phone> Hey Joe, how's it going
06:42:13 <Craig-phone> Trying to decide where to head
06:42:32 <Craig-phone> Maybe Biscuit for a change
06:42:34 <Joe> Good, except your camera S****
06:42:47 <Craig-phone> Lol, for sure
06:43:10 <Craig-phone> I left the good ones inside the Jeep
06:43:22 <Craig-phone> We got soaked bad
06:43:46 <Craig-phone> Ok, laters
06:43:59 <Joe> Thats the fun part I hear :)
07:03:26 <Joe> Aurum
07:05:08 <Joe> Glad I stopped by before heading for Daisy
07:07:27 <Joe> Hey #76 did your slide hit the enter key too many times?
07:08:46 <Joe> When I see the # 76, I think of 76 trombones :)
07:10:19 <Joe> Hi Dave
07:10:32 <Dave from B™> Morning Joe and all other chatroom gazers
07:11:09 <Dave from B™> Do you know when Craig is leaving?
07:11:59 <Joe> No I do not but today he is headed to biscuit
07:15:13 <Joe1> Dave technicians worked on camera last night https://youtu.be/Cr93tpv5SDc
07:17:16 <Dave from B™> When did techs start wearing bird suits?
07:18:05 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:18:13 <Joe> They did as good as that has been done
07:18:19 <Joe> Hi Jarno
07:47:23 <CraigBiscuit> Hey
07:47:55 <Joe> Hi again Craig
07:48:23 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigBiscuit...how's breakfast?:)
07:48:39 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Craig
07:48:51 <Joe> Dave wanted to know whwn you were leaving?
07:49:07 <CraigBiscuit> Just enjoying some rusty jewels with mustard
07:49:19 <Joe> Bisquits and Gravy?
07:49:31 <CraigBiscuit> Monday or Tuesday depending on next sb
07:49:32 <ynpvisitor999®> nice one Craig
07:50:12 <Dave from B™> I'll be camping for 2 nights 5 miles north of Big Skystarting Friday
07:50:32 <CraigBiscuit> Graham, can you help clarify Outpost Geyser. It is in the middle of the pool?
07:51:56 <Joe> Graham is not on yet (I think)
07:52:05 <CraigBiscuit> Dave from B™, are you coming down to the park?
07:52:39 <Dave from B™> No, we are going tubing on the lower Madison River....basic 3 hour float at about .005 mph with drinks involved
07:53:14 <CraigBiscuit> Cool
07:53:36 <ynpvisitor999®> where in Biscuit are you exactly, Craig?
07:54:43 <CraigBiscuit> I have the digital Geysers of Yellowstone but the maps are so small on a phone, I can't read the numbers in the Outpost group at biscuit
07:55:01 <CraigBiscuit> I am sitting next to East mustard
07:55:47 <CraigBiscuit> There is a crater north of the board walk with about 4 vents
07:56:16 <CraigBiscuit> Then three scattered craters
07:56:24 <CraigBiscuit> Then a pool
07:56:49 <ynpvisitor999®> from Google Maps, Outpost is the largest pool/crater
07:57:16 <CraigBiscuit> Ok, it was erupting from that pool
07:57:25 <CraigBiscuit> Thanks
07:57:46 <CraigBiscuit> It is starting again
07:59:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Said differently, Outpost is behind the smaller crater (known as Sentry) when you're sitting at East Mustard
08:00:34 <CraigBiscuit> Makes sense
08:02:44 <ynpvisitor12> 627 Anenome needs wc on it
08:03:58 <Joe> Done, thanks
08:05:52 <CraigBiscuit> Trifecta, Jewel, East Mustard, and Outpost
08:06:06 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:09:30 <Ytterby's Own> OK, Craig, now I have to look those up
08:09:39 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
08:09:49 <Ytterby's Own> Hello
08:16:37 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill, Jimbo, Jarno
08:17:48 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
08:20:42 <Dave from B™> It is starting already:(
08:20:59 <ynpvisitor45> .
08:21:17 <ynpvisitor999®> how's the cam been, Joe?
08:22:30 <Joe> Bad mostly, but we had ! hour 0633-0733 without failure
08:23:05 <ynpvisitor999®> :(
08:23:55 <Joe> should hav said 1 hour + 0822 first failurew since 0633
08:24:27 <Joe> Wow spelling!!
08:24:27 <Bill> Morning!
08:25:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Bill, how's the progress with the logger data map?
08:27:46 <Bill> Waiting for a couple things. We are working to get the data out on a platform the USGS uses. It'll be a process, but is actively being worked on. I'll update you as i can!
08:28:12 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
08:30:22 <Bill> I'm doing a webinar for the NPS (internal) on 1 Aug about all the fun stuff we have going on that's internal for now. I know that's kind of a tease, but this is the kind of stuff that can make getting data to the public much easier.
08:30:43 <Bill> Sometimes they post the videos on their youtube channel. I'll let you all know if that's the case.
08:32:17 <Dave from B™> Bill, last year, you mentioned updating geyser basin signs as on your radar. Any progress in that regard?
08:33:36 <Bill> Inventory should be finished this week. We have a visual repository and status of every sign in the thermal areas. We separately have a Visitor Use Management project that's monitoring impacts using an app we created here in the geology program
08:34:23 <Bill> The signs add context to the impacts that we're seeing and we can make decisions on where to add, replace or repair signs as needed
08:35:05 <Katie> good morning
08:35:19 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Katie
08:35:21 <Bill> Morning
08:35:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Any thought of going back tot he yellow on brown signs?
08:35:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet there's at least one sign on there that needs replacement in Norris
08:36:08 <Bill> TBD, but i personally hate the grey/cyan ones
08:36:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Me too!
08:37:02 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I love those old signs...still one at Punch Bowl
08:38:17 <Joe> Katie, do you have the cam?
08:38:21 <Joe> i hope
08:38:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Kevin, you'd like the weather here in the Netherlands at the moment - 40.5°C or 105°F
08:38:29 <Katie> Yup
08:38:40 <Joe> Ok
08:38:47 <Kevin L™🌵> You are hotter than I am!
08:39:29 <Katie> Beautiful steamy morning!
08:39:49 <Kevin L™🌵> 88° now with forecast high of 100°.
08:40:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I throughly dislike the weather, though. Humidity is around 30%, too
08:40:23 <Joe> We had technicians work on the cam last evening :) https://youtu.be/Cr93tpv5SDc
08:41:07 <Katie> I hope mister Raven found a loose wire and fixed it
08:42:40 <Kevin L™🌵> We are in a monsoon flow so humidity is 43% here now which is really high for us.
08:44:09 <ynpvisitor999®> could that also be why the temperatures are lower than usual for you?
08:44:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
08:51:59 <ynpvisitor70> nice video, unexpected butt shot at 7:30
08:53:53 <Dave from B™> 70, this isn't that kind of chat room:D
09:14:39 <Joe> Lion
09:14:44 <Katie> Lion ns I think
09:14:54 <ynpvisitor999®> may be initial
09:15:15 <ynpvisitor43> A full frontal lion.
09:15:27 <ynpvisitor43> Sorry after 70, could not resist
09:16:35 <Joe> Well.. the group gets a show
09:17:00 <Dave from B™> haha 43
09:17:11 <ynpvisitor43> So Kevin, thought of you this week watching a rail road show. It was European rr and had some cog track.
09:17:13 <Dave from B™> Awkward silence after my comment
09:17:44 <Katie> Yeah, well, where do we go from that?
09:17:53 <ynpvisitor43> No, it was very appropriate.
09:18:54 <Cooper> Good Morning Everyone, Afternoon Jarno
09:19:05 <Katie> Hi Cooper
09:19:17 <ynpvisitor43> I am sure with the geology we do get some butte shots now and then.
09:19:28 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Cooper
09:20:15 <Cooper> So, Next Lion 1032:45, is my bet
09:20:21 <ynpvisitor43> Cooper slept in?
09:20:54 <Cooper> Yes I did, man does 11 Hours of Sleep feel good
09:21:39 <ynpvisitor43> It prepares you for 11 hours of work when you get old.
09:28:34 <Dave from B™> 11 hours...is that for 2 nights?
09:28:47 <Dave from B™> Or, in Joe's case, 3?
09:28:59 <Cooper> Nope, 11 Hours, 1 Night
09:29:02 <Katie> Teenager, remember - they need a lot of sleep (and science says they really DO need it)
09:29:59 <Cooper> I am better than my 18 Year Old Brother(When he is not in college), who averages 2 Hours of Sleep a Night, as I usually get 7
09:30:44 <ynpvisitor43> I thought Dave was going to say 11 hours is that 2 days.
09:31:23 <Dave from B™> haha 43
09:32:03 <ynpvisitor43> For Kevin that is about 2 weeks of work isn't it?
09:32:07 <Dave from B™> In summer I get 6.5 to 7 because I get to bed so late because of nice evenings
09:32:28 <Cooper> Depression
09:32:54 <Cooper> ie
09:33:46 <Cooper> Very Nice Depression
09:34:26 <Cooper> Can we have a zoom in
09:35:11 <Cooper> tHANKS
09:35:17 <Cooper> Thanks**
09:41:27 <Cooper> BSB
09:42:04 <Casey> Morning everybody
09:42:47 <Cooper> Casey, Good Morning
09:43:05 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Casey
09:45:56 <Casey> Beehive splash
09:47:10 <Cooper> Of For a Morning Run, be back in a few minutes
09:49:19 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Cooper
09:52:05 <ynpvisitor43> Daisy ie
09:56:28 <ynpvisitor43> Well, enjoy OF. Be back for more exciting things. Like picking on Dave the prude chat monitor.
09:56:51 <ynpvisitor999®> cya #43
10:00:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Well it looks like I get OF if the cam stays up
10:00:44 <Cooper> back
10:00:44 <Katie> I'll keep my fingers cross that you don't have to login over and over and over and...
10:00:58 <Dave from B™> Yeah...Do I have a big "X" on my chest or what?:)
10:01:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Not holding my breath on that one
10:01:10 <Cooper> OF'
10:01:39 <Katie> Oh, good. Then it won't keep us from seeing Lion again. :) Pretty OF, too!
10:02:08 <Cooper> Hey Kevin, how is your Dad doing?
10:03:25 <Kevin L™🌵> We moved him to a hospice yesterday.
10:03:55 <Dave from B™> Sorry to hear that, Kevin
10:04:07 <Cooper> Sorry to hear that
10:05:17 <Katie> I'm sorry, Kevin.
10:05:20 <Kevin L™🌵> He was pretty rough.
10:05:30 <Cooper> Hey Jake
10:08:47 <Cooper> LC
10:12:50 <Cooper> Time to go De-Stinkify, be back in 15
10:14:35 <LindaG> Hello everyone hello
10:14:58 <Dave from B™> Hello Linda Hello
10:15:11 <LindaG> Hello Dave hello
10:15:14 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
10:15:17 <LindaG> 😃
10:15:35 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, sorry about your dad
10:16:48 <LindaG> Uh cam doesnt like me
10:21:20 <LindaG> Big bee splash
10:25:29 <ynpvisitor43> We have not been able to pick On Dave now that he broke the SB curse.
10:25:32 <ynpvisitor43> Nice pump
10:26:16 <ynpvisitor43> Whoops, forgot about the venison incident.
10:26:32 <Dave from B™> Yep...there ya go:)
10:27:09 <ynpvisitor43> Give a new meaning to surf and turf when he feeds deer meat to his lobsters.
10:37:53 <Cooper> back
10:38:08 <Cooper> Dang, No Lion
10:38:09 <Cooper> BSB
10:40:00 <ynpvisitor43> could have gone when we were looking at the x on Daves back
10:40:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:40:18 <Cooper> Lion
10:40:37 <Cooper> oh, Hello Linda, Hello
10:40:54 <LindaG> Cooper, 😃 hi
10:43:25 <LindaG> Lighting is weird
10:45:06 <Ytterby's Own> Overexposed
10:45:36 <LindaG> Yeah
10:47:10 <Katie> I just went back and entered Daisy to make the previous prediction go away
10:47:42 <Dave from B™> I know we haven't been keeping score this year since F&M and Giant aren't cooperating but Morning does have 15 eruptions this year
10:48:39 <Katie> Steamboat is winning the race. Just wanted to say something I never thought I'd say.
10:50:06 <Dave from B™> haha Katie. Yes, SB has turned the gazing world upside down
10:50:39 <Cooper> SB is erupting more than F & M and Giant, Combined, that is very abnormal, but awsome
10:52:05 <ynpvisitor999®> as long as Steamboat manages to recover completely (or even better, as with the first disturbance) from potential disturbances, I do think we'll be having an active Steamboat for the next years or so.
10:52:26 <ynpvisitor999®> OT
10:52:35 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, same as 1052 in-basin
10:52:38 <ynpvisitor999®> 1050*
10:52:59 <Cooper> Hey NWS, I have completed the CSSSW Report, Sorry I could not get it in Word. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oWSSgPCxSf77EsueIak5An0Rm5DT0Ktmx31Wwq1blB8/edit?usp=sharing
10:53:07 <Cooper> Test.
10:53:08 <Cooper> Test.
10:53:17 <ynpvisitor999®> uhmm... Wrong tab?
10:53:29 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks for the document, though :P
10:53:40 <Cooper> WOW, I am very bad at typing
10:53:49 <ynpvisitor43> No confused form all that sleep
10:53:56 <Cooper> and at clicking things with my mouse
10:54:18 <Cooper> Okay, now it is sent to the right person
10:55:08 <Cooper> Jarno, it is okay if you do
10:55:40 <Cooper> Hey Craig
10:55:50 <Casey> Hi Craig!
10:55:50 <Craig at Grand> Hey
10:55:52 <ynpvisitor999®> hi Craig
10:56:06 <ynpvisitor999®> how was your breakfast in Biscuit?
10:56:33 <ynpvisitor43> Preoccupied so not checking times. Is it safe to assume Grand is due, or just another mystery crowd?
10:57:18 <ynpvisitor43> So it could be both.
11:01:10 <Cooper> Looks like I might need to make another one of those reports later today
11:02:39 <Cooper> YAY, Time to copy everything from that over to word
11:03:43 <ynpvisitor43> The cam read the report and is back!
11:05:51 <ynpvisitor43> steam from the hive
11:07:00 <Cooper> BSB????
11:07:09 <Cooper> Yup
11:09:09 <Cooper> can we check up on Grand>
11:09:11 <Cooper> ?**
11:09:55 <Cooper> Nice, Thanks
11:10:47 <Katie> I have been working on a fine-toothed comb audit of everything in our network for the last couple weeks. Last week I highlighted "issues" that I noticed. This week I'm investigating them.
11:11:05 <Katie> There are very few, which is great, but the ones we do have - oh my, but some of them are convoluted.
11:12:28 <ynpvisitor59> 23 min since last Turban
11:13:27 <ynpvisitor43> I think they are fixing the antenna. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VSH5P_ATdw
11:13:42 <ynpvisitor43> And this one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvdSKB86obA
11:18:39 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting note from Lynn Stephens on Jet's activity post-potential Morning-Fountain dual
11:19:21 <ynpvisitor999®> on the Google Group, that is
11:19:28 <Dave from B™> Nice to see Lynn is back
11:19:36 <ynpvisitor93> Grand.
11:19:37 <Cooper> Grand
11:19:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
11:19:55 <ynpvisitor999®> definitely D0
11:21:55 <ynpvisitor43> there is this video of the install. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmirmK1J4Nk
11:25:32 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G-- per in-basin reports
11:25:54 <Dave from B™> nice closeup
11:25:55 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems Turban started almost a minute after Grand
11:28:14 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
11:28:49 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
11:28:52 <Casey> Boom
11:29:06 <Casey> Craig is getting a good show
11:29:45 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd done
11:29:54 <ynpvisitor59> short 2nd
11:30:02 <ynpvisitor999®> just over 10m
11:30:11 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Turban bursting
11:30:13 <Casey> Looks like a C
11:30:40 <Casey> Yeah. It is cool actually seeing water from Turban
11:31:05 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G2Q
11:31:09 <Casey> Maybe not a C
11:31:10 <ynpvisitor999®> that's my call
11:31:20 <Casey> Yeah. I was just second guessing myself
11:34:35 <Cooper> OF Window
11:34:40 <Cooper> the middle of it
11:34:57 <ynpvisitor999®> we have a static, so no worries there
11:35:36 <Casey> D0/G2C. Jarno knows his stuff.
11:35:39 <ynpvisitor999®> D0/G2C | 10m16s
11:35:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I called Q, not C
11:35:54 <Casey> Oops
11:36:01 <ynpvisitor60> FYI Dave, Lynn isn't back in YNP, she posted based on what she saw on her earlier trip
11:36:02 <Casey> Nevermind. I got it right (and then backtracked).
11:36:19 <ynpvisitor43> We have 2 static cams. One occasionally can be moved around but the update is not predictable.
11:36:27 <ynpvisitor999®> in-basin reports are definitely preferred for Grand codes
11:37:01 <Casey> Agreed. It's fun to try to call it and then verify against in-basin reports.
11:39:36 <Dave from B™> Thanks 60. Do I remember correctly that she is NOT coming back to the park this year. Wasn't she going to AK?
11:48:51 <ynpvisitor60> she usually goes to AK. not sure if she will be back toYNP
11:50:21 <Dave from B™> I really enjoyed talking with her just after Memorial Day at the Fountain platform. I learned a lot from Lynn and Graham that trip.
11:50:35 <Cooper> Hey Graham
11:52:06 <GO MORNING> hello. there are lots of patterns with Morning/Ftn this year, the gaps in activity and the buildup with MT resuming activity andFtn durations egtting longer until Morning erupts .. then intervals can be all over the place
11:52:29 <GO MORNING> i wonder if Craig learned that he needs a bright flashlight ... or two
11:52:31 <Cooper> Aurum

12:06:41 <Cooper> BSB
12:11:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:17:27 <GO MORNING> Micah got Ledge Spring on his tour today, nice
12:17:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice
12:19:04 <Betty> hi all
12:19:11 <Cooper> Hey Betty
12:19:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
12:20:27 <ynpvisitor999®> South ie
12:20:45 <Betty> German heat record today: 108 :sun::sun::sun::sun:
12:20:53 <Dave from B™> ouch
12:21:24 <Betty> hi Cooper, Kevin L™🌵, Dave from B™ and Jarno
12:21:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Las Vegas 96° 😎
12:21:49 <ynpvisitor999®> 105.26°F here today, Betty. Also a record
12:21:54 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
12:22:06 <Betty> you have snow already, Kevin?
12:22:53 <Dave from B™> 84, headed to 90......PERFECT!
12:23:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Been a nice Summer weatherwise
12:23:43 <Cooper> froze Bee splash
12:23:49 <Cooper> froze (on*)
12:24:28 <🌵Betty🌵> I can relate, Jarno
12:26:42 <ynpvisitor999®> could cool down tomorrow afternoon, though, so hoping that rain clouds developing above Belgium survive the passage over the border
12:36:13 <🌵Betty🌵> Lion maybe?
12:38:39 <🌵Betty🌵> can we look atv Lion please?
12:40:51 <🌵Betty🌵> thx
12:41:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Trying to get control of the cam between outages is not easy.
12:41:30 <🌵Betty🌵> :-)
12:41:57 <🌵Betty🌵> how´s your dad?
12:42:33 <Kevin L™🌵> :thumbsdown:
12:42:47 <Kevin L™🌵> In hospice now.
12:43:09 <GO MORNING> sorry to hear that Kevin
12:43:09 <🌵Betty🌵> oh, sorry to hear that :-(
12:44:13 <🌵Betty🌵> tat sure is not easy to deal with
12:44:35 <🌵Betty🌵> I know when my dad was there. It´s a real hard ime
12:46:25 <Kevin L™🌵> We were pretty much expecting this but it did happen quicker that we thought it would.
12:46:44 <ynpvisitor999®> :(
12:52:01 <🌵Betty🌵> even if you are expecting it, it happens always suddenly
12:52:03 <GO MORNING> snow has gone from one side of Washburn and almost from the other

13:13:59 <Kevin L™🌵> OF was 1312
13:33:12 <Dave from B™> Kevin, does your son have any races coming up?
13:34:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Not until the end of next month. They take the Summers off except Father's Day and The Night of Fire on July 3rd
13:35:57 <Kevin L™🌵> My wife says she isn't going to anymore of them though.
13:36:49 <Dave from B™> Did he get in an accident and scare her?
13:37:50 <ynpvisitor43> Some people do not like racing.
13:38:49 <Dave from B™> Tell me about it. I've been trying to get my wife to go for 2 years...always something else she would rather do.
13:39:53 <Kevin L™🌵> He did finish 2nd
13:42:38 <Cooper> oh, Hey Lori
13:43:01 <Lori S> Hello Cooper. I snuck in. :)
13:43:48 <Lori S> I see X marks the spot again
13:44:40 <Lori S> I got a canned response from Canon USA stating my compliant had been escalated to a higher level. :)
13:44:55 <Lori S> *complaint
13:46:14 <Cooper> that is good, thanks for doing that'
13:46:43 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a good sign

13:47:42 <Cooper> .
13:47:43 <Cooper> .
13:47:54 <Lori S> They apologized I was having trouble with "your Old Faithful streaming webcam" as if it was my personal webcam. LOL
13:48:05 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
13:48:14 <ynpvisitor999®> now if the cam would co-operate...
13:48:19 <Cooper> come on cam, stay up for Bee
13:48:44 <Lori S> got nuthin here...down
13:49:42 <ynpvisitor103> i had to reload the page a couple times, and now i can see.
13:49:43 <Eric> Thanks for the txt
13:49:45 <Cooper> bEE
13:49:49 <Cooper> Bee**
13:49:53 <Eric> Booom
13:49:59 <Eric> :bee: :bee: :bee:
13:50:03 <ynpvisitor66> baaboom!
13:50:12 <Eric> short squat...and dead
13:50:13 <Lori S> Got it!
13:50:18 <Eric> :-(
13:50:37 <Eric> Boooooo
13:50:40 <KarlH> Ugh.
13:50:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric broke it
13:51:17 <Lori S> That was to the cam, not Eric LOL
13:51:34 <Eric> I will leave and I hope it fixes it :-( YNP is sucking it on the webcam....
13:51:48 <Cooper> HAHA
13:51:55 <Cooper> Tall one
13:51:55 <KarlH> Bwahahaha!
13:52:03 <Lori S> At least it froze on Bee
13:52:29 <Lori S> Bee shower!
13:52:42 <ynpvisitor999®> ought to be a short Indy
13:52:47 <KarlH> I like how this view captures the people at Sponge that wish they could see Bee's cone.
13:53:06 <Cooper> GT Prediction was Close
13:54:25 <Lori S> Need to swivel and see if the ravens are up there :) Once it is back uo anyway
13:54:48 <GO MORNING> not on GT, didnt happen
13:55:54 <Cooper> NO COMPUTER, I SAID I QUIT
13:56:40 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Apparantly the 'Cooper never quits' rule needs to be thoroughly revised.
13:59:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is his finish Dave: https://www.facebook.com/LVMSShortTracks/photos/a.385533871597/10157435962816598/?type=3&theater
14:01:09 <Dave from B™> First flip?
14:02:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. I was laughing but his Mom wasn't.
14:03:38 <Lori S> Slid acroos the finish line on his roof?
14:03:44 <Lori S> *across
14:04:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Actually if his trailer would have stayed on, he would have won the race. Last car running with a trailer attached is the winner.
14:05:49 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER55LBeFMaU
14:08:31 <GO MORNING> looks ike you all made up a story abut BH erupting
14:10:14 <Kevin L™🌵> It was prerecorded.
14:10:24 <ynpvisitor999®> we didn't make anything up - look on GT ;)
14:10:47 <GO MORNING> and there it is
14:11:00 <GO MORNING> must be some serius lag
14:11:00 <Lori S> Bee was prerecorded? :p
14:11:27 <GO MORNING> a total fake as it wasnt on GT
14:11:44 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, I can see why Mom doesn't want to go anymore.
14:12:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he is nuts myself.
14:15:13 <Dave from B™> Does he take after you or your wife?:D
14:15:26 <Kevin L™🌵> He does use more than required safety equipment in it including double roll bar, Nascar For fitted seat, 5 point harness, and there are 3/8" steel slabs welded across the doors.
14:16:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he takes after my Wife's Dad. He ran away from home at 13 and supported himself riding rodeo.
14:17:30 <Lori S> One way to look at it: If he's an expert at crashing, then he should do better during real world accidents. Not that he would have one, just sayin.
14:18:15 <Kevin L™🌵> The wife was upset when they didn't get him right out. The first thing they look for is fire, leaking gas, and major injury. If none of those exist they leave you in the vehicle and roll it over. Safer that way. You don't fall on your neck.
14:18:22 <Lori S> Seriously, though, are the birds up there on the roof?
14:19:08 <ynpvisitor40> Yep
14:19:15 <Lori S> Aha!
14:19:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Just them big black chickens....
14:19:33 <Dave from B™> There are a ton more "obstacles" on the OFI than in the old tree
14:19:44 <ynpvisitor40> Give them some water :)
14:20:04 <Lori S> ynpvisitor40, :thumbsup:
14:20:37 <Lori S> Shoots that theory down
14:21:18 <Lori S> And now we are frozen on the roof. My fault.
14:21:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Add a 15,000 volt insulated wire...
14:21:42 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, oh dear!
14:21:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Uninsulated
14:22:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Inn Could have a sale on fried chicken.
14:22:21 <Lori S> Would make changing flags a bit adventurous.
14:22:39 <Lori S> Fried dumpster chicken
14:22:49 <ynpvisitor999®> is that the pole that fell down?
14:23:20 <Kevin L™🌵> I believe it is. 2 poles fell.
14:23:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Bet there is more meat on that bird than the last bucket of KFC I got.
14:24:17 <ynpvisitor40> Someone asked me "what is your favorite farm animal?" I replied "Fried Chicken" :)
14:24:39 <Dave from B™> Mine would be bacon
14:25:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Pigs are good eating. Like the ham too. Make great schnitzel.
14:25:17 <Lori S> Mine would be filet mignon
14:25:34 <Dave from B™> and champagne:)
14:25:41 <Lori S> wraped in bacon
14:25:47 <Lori S> *wrapped
14:25:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Champagne wrapped in bacon?
14:26:17 <Dave from B™> I was making fun of Lori's expensive choice
14:26:40 <Lori S> no, filet wrapped in bacon, oh nevermind
14:26:46 <Lori S> :p
14:27:29 <Dave from B™> You are making me hungry, Lori. Nothing like a good steak
14:27:42 <Dave from B™> I eat one so rarely anymore
14:27:51 <Lori S> WB Cooper. We are discussing our favorite farm animlas
14:28:00 <Lori S> *animals
14:28:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I need to thaw bacon. Doing baked beans this weekend.
14:28:33 <Cooper> sorry about my rampage, earlier. but man this "live streaming" cam really presses my buttons. I think maybe I need to revise, "Cooper Never Quits" to "Cooper Never Quits, Unless The Cam Presses His Buttons"
14:28:35 <Lori S> Mid rare filet is a rare treat but worth every penny,
14:29:08 <Cooper> I like Goats, but I do not know why, besides Goat tastes really good fried
14:29:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Potatoes are also great. Stuffed with sour cream, cheese and bacon.
14:30:01 <Lori S> I've never eaten goat, That I am aware of.
14:30:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Goats are funny animals. A fellow down the road has a few.
14:30:22 <Cooper> also, Sorry Calculator, RIP
14:30:30 <Lori S> I have eaten Chinese food in West so who knows. :p
14:31:59 <Dave from B™> Eating fewer carbs has been a hard transition for me. I love potatoes and bread
14:32:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I love the Idaho Spuds (the candy bar ones too).
14:34:02 <ynpvisitor40> NPS is not showing the roof on the streaming page :)
14:34:31 <Lori S> Anyone for a nice cup od cocoa with our farm animals?
14:34:38 <Kevin L™🌵> If the controls would come up I wouldn't either.
14:34:50 <ynpvisitor40> There is a oicture of Bee and a play button
14:34:59 <Cooper> All I need is some clear rope, a little bit of wire to wrap around the cam, and a laso
14:36:20 <Cooper> The Employee who is washing the cam steps and get tangled in the rope, he/ she struggles, then he pulls the trigger button to a saw, and then the saw cuts away the cam, and the NPS Employee goes to prison.
14:37:14 <Kevin L™🌵> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgtQj8O92eI
14:37:30 <Lori S> Dave from B™, I went so very long not eating McDonalds. Then yesterday I got hungry when I was a blcok away. an hour after eating it, I got a HUGE headache.
14:38:24 <Lori S> And, of course, am craving it today. Just saying NO.
14:38:25 <Cooper> but I will YELL at the cam, and likely break another calculator, a glass, or my brothers fingers
14:38:37 <Cooper> Lori, DO NOT, NO, NO, NO
14:38:54 <Dave from B™> Do you have any other healthier "quick" options in West? Sometimes, that is the battle in smaller towns.
14:39:19 <Lori S> Dave from B™, Subway is the healthiest quick we have. Other than my fridge.
14:39:35 <Cooper> Lori, you should go into UGB and run laps around Geyser Hill and out to Grand
14:40:12 <Lori S> Cooper, I wouldn't make it past the Anemones going clockwise for even one lap.Running, I mean.
14:40:55 <Dave from B™> Subway is my go to if I don't bring leftovers from home
14:40:59 <Cooper> Yes, Yes you can. just take a break at Bee, then Lion, then Giantess, then Bee, then Lion, then Grand. and so on.
14:40:59 <Lori S> I mean, I almost wiped out just trying to run from Echinus to SB. Though, the boardwalk helped.
14:41:02 <ynpvisitor40> Now NPS has the roof :)
14:41:06 <Lori S> *hindered
14:41:28 <ynpvisitor40> Cam is up
14:41:28 <Cooper> and if you get tired then walk!
14:41:42 <ynpvisitor999®> if you want to move the cam, do it now
14:42:25 <Lori S> I had a big ol walk planned from geyser hill to riverside and back a few weekends ago. Darn bison stopped us at grand.
14:42:38 <ynpvisitor43> What is up with the flag poles? I know thye are hinged so they can fix them when the rope comes off.
14:43:17 <Cooper> Lori, do you have any days of?
14:43:22 <Cooper> off**
14:43:37 <Lori S> Every Fri, Sat, and Sun
14:43:40 <ynpvisitor40> Two poles broke in the wind
14:43:46 <Lori S> But Bob and I share a truck so...
14:44:05 <Cooper> Maybe head in once a week, and go out to Riverside and Back
14:44:40 <Lori S> Tell that to the Bob. I think it's a great idea.
14:44:48 <Cooper> Okay, is it odd that during a single day of me in the UGB I will walk 20 to 25 Miles? and then head to another basin and hike 5 or 6? and do that every day?
14:45:12 <Cooper> At least according to my Fit Bit+ Google Maps
14:45:56 <Dave from B™> Cooper, that seems like a lot. I normally average 10-12 miles in UGB when I'm there
14:46:35 <Lori S> What I SHOULD do is Biscuit to Daisy to Black Sand to Old Faithful, Geyser Hill, then back to Biscuit via Giant.
14:47:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Get a University of Utah Seismic Center sticker for your truck and dress in green coveralls with a yellow hard, Bright vest, radio, and a clipboard and just drive down the bike path.
14:47:26 <Lori S> Including Biscuit AND Black Sand
14:49:09 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, :thumbsup:
14:50:16 <Cooper> Lori, wouldn't that be like 5 miles total?
14:50:22 <Cooper> that is pretty good
14:50:36 <Lori S> Not sure. Maybe more.
14:51:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Watch those fit bits. Mine says I was asleep when I drove home from an early morning Dr appt.
14:51:56 <ynpvisitor999®> lol
14:53:03 <ynpvisitor43> Maybe you were.
14:53:28 <Lori S> I've tried the old fashioned pedometers with no luck. No fit bit for me.
14:53:30 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie mid
14:53:48 <Dave from B™> Use your smartphone
14:53:57 <Lori S> How?
14:54:03 <ynpvisitor43> GPS workes now days.
14:54:05 <Dave from B™> Every Iphone has one; I'm sureandroid does as well
14:54:11 <Cooper> Okay, time to head out for a little while. Good luck with the Cam
14:54:15 <Kevin L™🌵> There is a not that Marion (Dick) Powell died
14:54:21 <Kevin L™🌵> note
14:54:29 <Lori S> Cooper, bye Cooper
14:55:14 <Lori S> Dave from B™, Oh, do you mean as in turn on Google Maps location tracking?
14:56:08 <ynpvisitor43> Isn't there a ap that works off the gps and tracks millage?
14:56:43 <ynpvisitor43> I would not let google know where I am.
15:00:09 <Lori S> ynpvisitor43, That's why mine is turned off.
15:00:31 <Dave from B™> Lori, what kind of phone do you have
15:00:42 <Lori S> LG android
15:00:56 <Lori S> Verizon
15:01:19 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure what android has. I'll talk to my son tonight. IPhone has health app that tracks mileage, steps, floors climbed. It's pretty nice
15:01:59 <Lori S> I bet I can find something on the Play store for free. I will look. It would make my doc happy.
15:02:06 <Dave from B™> And, it was Dick Powell's wfie, Marion, that passed away
15:03:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I prefer to keep my phone (and more-or-less any tech stuff) as dumb as possible
15:08:26 <Lori S> I could push up into a plank and hold it every time the cam goes down until it comes back up.
15:08:57 <Lori S> Cam-astenics
15:09:00 <Kevin L™🌵> These cam updates remind me of high school math classes.
15:09:35 <Lori S> *camisthenics
15:10:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket
15:10:45 <Lori S> Nice
15:10:52 <ynpvisitor999®> can you zoom to it please?
15:14:30 <ynpvisitor43> I was thinking camnesia. I think some one already cam up with it.
15:14:48 <Dave from B™> haha 43. I like it
15:15:16 <Lori S> steam from the area of Artemesia
15:15:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Atomizer had a major @ 1349, so definitely not that one this time
15:15:59 <ynpvisitor43> way to dance around that after the other day
15:16:05 <Lori S> ynpvisitor43, :thumbsup:
15:16:26 <Lori S> Presumably, Suzanne could still be down there.
15:18:01 <Lori S> A Rocket/Maybe Atremesia or Not Artemesia dual
15:18:51 <GO MORNING> sorry to hear abur Marion Powell, nice person and i know she was ill several years ago. They stayed at Bakers Hole for their last yellowstone trips and DIck would come in to watch geysers
15:18:54 <Lori S> *Artemisia
15:19:25 <GO MORNING> i think they were campground hosts there too?
15:20:41 <GO MORNING> and Marion was a volunteer transcribing some of the old geyser log books with Mary Beth
15:21:22 <Lori S> GO MORNING, :thumbsup:
15:21:30 <GO MORNING> maybe did some of the logs that Jarno has been uploading to GT
15:21:49 <ynpvisitor999®> 1992-onward was done by Lynn
15:21:58 <ynpvisitor999®> as far as I know
15:22:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Craig's been at Lone Star
15:22:48 <GO MORNING> they may have done the older ones, not sure
15:23:33 <ynpvisitor999®> 1970 through 1981 was done by Mary Beth and Marion I think
15:24:31 <ynpvisitor999®> looked it up on the OFVCL GOSA page - Mary Beth and Marion from 1970 to 1981 and Lynn from 1981
15:25:01 <Dave from B™> Tough to lose another gazer.
15:25:28 <Dave from B™> Have a greatwekend everyone! Heading out to sweat and then finish packing for the camping trip.
15:25:35 <Lori S> Dryer "emergency" at work BBL
15:25:40 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Dave, enjoy
15:25:44 <Lori S> Bye Dave
15:25:48 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Lori, good luck
15:26:07 <GO MORNING> when they were NPS volunteers I think they stayed in the OF Govt area campsite
15:26:57 <ynpvisitor43> Time for me to do other things
15:27:06 <ynpvisitor999®> cya #43
15:27:45 <ynpvisitor43> I have exhausted my quota of refresh hits for the week
15:39:48 <ynpvisitor21> Craig was out at Lone Star
15:48:44 <ynpvisitor4> What the heck is wrong with the webcam? It seems to be going down a awful lot.
15:49:31 <ynpvisitor999®> radio signal interference due to a repeater nearby most likely
15:49:48 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the new normal.
15:58:49 <ynpvisitor999®> sure... Aurum 1555
15:59:25 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
15:59:50 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting... Over the last couple of eruptions, Aurum maintained a 4-5h interval
15:59:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls released
16:00:48 <ynpvisitor999®> with that in mind, next Aurum @ 1955±30m
16:03:13 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, 2025±30m. I can do maths
16:05:58 <Lori S (amused)> My part in the emergency is over. I head into days off in 3 hours. Nt my problem.
16:06:25 <Lori S (amused)> Until Monday, anyway.
16:15:58 <ynpvisitor110> moving pictures!
16:23:57 <Cooper> OF ie on static
16:24:53 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper, that's nice. Cam has been down more than up.
16:25:21 <Cooper> this stupid thing
16:26:20 <Cooper> not you Lori, the cam
16:26:32 <ynpvisitor999®> well... my static just disappeared too :P
16:27:14 <Cooper> maybe we can slowly put it on Grand?
16:27:24 <ynpvisitor999®> uhm... you might want to keep that calculator for the future
16:28:32 <Cooper> I have plenty of OLD Calculators, that I keep to break, instead of just throwing them away, I have another calculator TI-84 PLUS CE that I baby and will never destroy.
16:28:36 <Lori S (amused)> ynpvisitor999®, Remember when there were no calculators just slide rules?
16:29:20 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper, 15 characters max.
16:29:32 <Lori S (amused)> I found that out yesterday
16:29:43 <ynpvisitor999®> I've read that a couple of days ago here, Lori. Never used a slide ruler to calculate, though
16:30:36 <Lori S (amused)> Me neither but my sister did
16:30:46 <Cooper(Furious)> angry, furious, infuriated, irate, raging, enraged, fuming, blazing, flaming mad, blazing mad, in a towering rage, incensed, wrathful, seeing red, cross, indignant, exasperated, irritated, berserk, out of control, beside oneself
16:30:57 <Cooper(Furious)> that is a list of Adjectives to describe myself right now
16:31:28 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper(Furious), It's just a webcam.
16:31:32 <Lori S (amused)> :p
16:32:24 <Lori S (amused)> Maybe you could start a business chopping firewood. Good way to take out such feelings.
16:33:18 <Cooper(Furious)> How does this sound for the next time the cam dies during on of my Favorite Geysers Eruptions, Your a Terrible Godawfull like thing of 0 Value or Worth, Never, Never am I going to like you again until you are fixed, YOU CAM ARE A DISGRACE TO GEYSERS. I QUIT
16:34:20 <Lori S (amused)> Well, there could be NO cam at all ever. So there's that.
16:34:27 <Cooper(Furious)> Oh Right
16:35:14 <Cooper(Furious)> What about this, I AM DONE, I QUIT??? any better
16:35:37 <Lori S (amused)> Seems that worked.
16:36:22 <ynpvisitor4> You can, in fact, quit.
16:37:05 <Cooper(Furious)> It was an odd feeling, when I was in YNP I was expecting the geysers to pause like the cam, it was a nice experience 5 days, no geyser pauses caused by the m breaking!
16:37:05 <ynpvisitor45> my comment exactly
16:37:23 <Kat> Hi all sorry, got caught up - late!
16:37:34 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Kat
16:37:38 <Cooper(Furious)> Afternoon Kat
16:37:52 <ynpvisitor999®> you didn't miss anything, though. Cam's been crap all afternoon
16:38:08 <Lori S (amused)> Hi Kat.
16:38:18 <Kat> :)
16:38:20 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper(Furious), IKR (on the live geysers)
16:38:26 <Kat> :(
16:39:12 <Cooper(Furious)> What does IKR stand for?
16:39:16 <Lori S (amused)> So, can I offer anyone a hot beverage?
16:39:24 <Lori S (amused)> I Know Right
16:39:34 <Cooper(Furious)> Oh
16:39:50 <Lori S (amused)> Tea, coffee, cocoa?
16:40:00 <Cooper(Furious)> No Thanks Lori, but I would not mind a nice vanilla milkshake:)
16:40:08 <Lori S (amused)> Yummy
16:40:43 <Kat> I'll have some coffee! Thanks
16:40:57 <Lori S (amused)> Cream, sugar?
16:43:33 <Cooper(Happy)> This Chat page makes most of my days. The People, and sometimes the Cam:D
16:43:42 <Cooper(Happy)> Not Begin Sarcastic
16:43:51 <Cooper(Happy)> Being**
16:45:20 <Kat> No Lori, plain old black -straight up! :)
16:45:55 <Cooper(Happy)> black coffee, very interesting
16:46:36 <Kat> Interesting why Cooper?
16:46:56 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper(Happy), I come here when work gets me down.
16:47:13 <Kat> Oh thanks Lori - that's yummy! :)
16:47:33 <Cooper(Happy)> SUprising, I do not meet many people who like Black Coffee, I do not know why
16:47:48 <Cooper(Happy)> Morning Glory Coffee and Tea, is that in West?
16:48:15 <Lori S (amused)> Yes, it is. They also have a website. I like their Obsidian Blend.
16:48:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Enjoy the still frames
16:48:52 <Cooper(Happy)> Bye Jarno, I will Try
16:48:52 <Kat> Bye Jarno!
16:48:59 <Lori S (amused)> Bye Jarno!
16:49:07 <Cooper(Happy)> I will have to stop there next time I am in west
16:50:27 <Lori S (amused)> They actually don't have a retail store anymore. They roast and do wholesale. You can get it at the Marketplace grocery here thou
16:51:16 <Cooper(Happy)> Then I will have to try there roast
16:51:42 <Kat> Lori, so that call out that Tanya placed for help at the South Entrance - CG, I wish I could do it so bad!
16:52:48 <Lori S (amused)> What call out?
16:53:42 <Kat> Saw it in FB! I'll make sure I'm connected to you and share it!
16:54:12 <Lori S (amused)> Let me look. On GG page?
16:55:40 <Kat> I'll check!
16:56:04 <ynpvisitor45> south entrance has a campground?
16:56:33 <Kat> Lewis Lake?
16:56:49 <Lori S (amused)> Ids there an open opaid position?
16:57:00 <Lori S (amused)> *is *paid
16:57:42 <Lori S (amused)> Not that I'm looking for a differnet job ;)
16:58:28 <Kat> NO- iys volunteer
16:58:33 <Kat> its
16:58:40 <Lori S (amused)> Oh, but still.
17:01:13 <Cooper(Happy)> Grand
17:01:14 <Cooper(Happy)> ie
17:03:06 <Kat> Bulger
17:03:54 <Kat> Shhhh about timing! :)
17:06:41 <Kat> Maj Bulger
17:08:06 <ynpvisitor45> check your watch Kat? See the in basin Grand time
17:09:56 <Lori S (amused)> Nice Grand
17:10:06 <Kat> 45 - OK but I'm going to check the cam too
17:10:20 <Kat> Woah! :)
17:10:29 <ynpvisitor45> you entered it at 1701 per chat
17:12:04 <Kat> I didn't enter it on chat, ?
17:13:13 <ynpvisitor45> oh sorry, Cooper said Grand at 1701
17:13:29 <ynpvisitor45> ^^ in chat
17:13:29 <Cooper(Happy)> and that it was ie
17:14:33 <ynpvisitor45> in basin was 1700
17:14:49 <Lori S (amused)> Kat first mentioned Bulger at 17:03:06 ^^^
17:16:26 <Kat> OK - primary entry in GT s at 1700, all is well! I think it started at 1659 - but in basin takes priority so it's 1700 :)
17:17:00 <Kat> I deleted my Grand...
17:18:06 <ynpvisitor45> I was asking why you thought it was 1659
17:19:25 <Lori S (amused)> Meanwhile, looks like my observation of stream in the vicinity of Arty at 15:15 was in fact Arty.
17:19:33 <ynpvisitor40> At 1701:08 the cam arrived at Grand after leaving Geyser Hill :)
17:20:16 <ynpvisitor45> thanks 40, so it could not have been 1659
17:20:17 <Lori S (amused)> I saw a stream? *steam
17:21:50 <Lori S (amused)> But I didnt enter it due to yesterday's kerfuffle. :)
17:22:57 <ynpvisitor45> I've been noticing 10 to 20 minute difference in Arty times WC versus basin. If you think how deep it is below the old road that makes sense
17:23:05 <Kat> :)
17:24:51 <Kat> My error. Deleted and fixed.
17:25:05 <Lori S (amused)> ynpvisitor45, That's good to know. I did see a wisp earlier than 15:15 but it got thick ablout 15:15 ish
17:25:48 <Lori S (amused)> Glad there were folks actually there to see it.
17:25:51 <ynpvisitor45> Kat did you check your watch? that's all I was asking
17:26:46 <Kat> I don't go by a watch - I go by my computer, it's all good!
17:27:31 <Lori S (amused)> Is there a watch check like a coat check? (Joke)
17:27:36 <ynpvisitor45> i think the Grand spread is pretty wide, but a minute may matter on something like BHSB
17:29:02 <Kat> Hahaha Lori!
17:29:42 <ynpvisitor45> remember the old days, you HAD to set your watch to whatever they had in the VC
17:30:57 <ynpvisitor45> then there would be radio "discussions" about the correct time of a call
17:33:26 <Kat> 45 - who is using this number? Nicce to know! :)
17:33:38 <Kat> Nice
17:35:55 <Kat> Sorry - Visitor 45?
17:38:58 <Cooper(Happy)> Everyone should read all the Norris notes, some are very interesting(I hope we do not get another"D")
17:41:16 <Lori S (amused)> There are Norris notes?
17:42:09 <Cooper(Happy)> Tantalus, and Pearl + YFS sound quite interesting to me, as in very interesting
17:44:10 <Lori S (amused)> Thanks for the heads up. Tantalus note looks typlical for a post SB recently. Pearl has been that way most of the summer. I think.
17:44:43 <Lori S (amused)> YFS, maybe. It's actually Constant that makes me wonder.
17:46:03 <Cooper(Happy)> Tantalus, when I Headed back about this time after my SB, it was Clear with a 2 point boil, so to me I think it is odd, but yes the Constant note is quite interesting
17:46:38 <Cooper(Happy)> but then again, what do I really know
17:46:57 <Lori S (amused)> Cooper(Happy), What do any of us really know. :)
17:47:08 <Cooper(Happy)> that's true
17:47:49 <Lori S (amused)> I do know I'm hungry and have 75 minutes left at work with no snacks.
17:48:15 <Cooper(Happy)> oh no that is not good
17:50:12 <ynpvisitor45> when was your 'steamboat cooper?
17:51:54 <ynpvisitor45> the 3 days one, right? I didn't think Tantalus was going then
17:52:01 <Cooper(Happy)> June 15th, and that was the weird one with at least 7 complete restarts from mixed phase, and that one also caused other weird events in the basin
17:52:14 <Cooper(Happy)> it was overflowing and boiling
17:54:37 <Cooper(Happy)> but then again, i am a UGB person, and am still learning to be a Norris person
17:58:18 <ynpvisitor45> what other weird events?
17:59:29 <Cooper(Happy)> well Emerals the next day was boiling, and then on my next loop it was not overflowing, and Vixen was not cooperating with me
17:59:52 <Cooper(Happy)> Emerald Spring, not Emerals**
18:00:17 <Cooper(Happy)> neither was YFS
18:01:52 <Cooper(Happy)> but once again, really what do I know about Norris
18:03:38 <ynpvisitor45> did you read the MAB note in the google group? Vixen as long as 2 hour intervals
18:05:06 <Cooper(Happy)> I did read the GG note about Vixen, and trust me I waited an Hour on my first loop(too long for Vixen) and then I waited fro an hour again after my loop around Back and Porcelain(this wait was on my second loop),
18:05:35 <Cooper(Happy)> wait, let me play my game again, 45, are oyu Joe?
18:07:23 <ynpvisitor45> you should put that info in GT as notes
18:08:15 <Cooper(Happy)> I personally think that it is a little too late to add them as notes, as they were short term events, that did not last more than 12 hours, as everything was back to normal by the time I turnned around
18:09:05 <Cooper(Happy)> by the time I (cam back around)
18:10:00 <ynpvisitor45> well maybe CB's notes today are short term, but we want to know
18:10:49 <Cooper(Happy)> well, time for dinner be back later'
18:16:45 <Cooper(Happy)> well, back and I have my dinner

19:17:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
19:17:49 <Cooper(Happy)> Your Dad doing any better?
19:18:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Nope. Just staring at the ceiling.
19:19:10 <Cooper(Happy)> Sorry to hear that:(
19:22:31 <Kat> Sorry Kevin. Wish I could do something to help!
19:22:53 <Kat> Bulger
19:23:06 <Cooper(Happy)> same here Kat.
19:25:25 <Kevin L™🌵> It hasn't been unexpected and he is for sure not really comfortable. Just want to give him the softest landing possible.
19:29:53 <Cooper(Happy)> oh dear, sorry that it is heading that way. Hang in there.
19:34:14 <ynpvisitor62> Hey Cooper this is GoVixen. a little birdy told me I should ask what you saw back in June
19:34:51 <ynpvisitor62> hey Kat :)
19:35:15 <Cooper(Happy)> OF ie on Static
19:35:20 <Cooper(Happy)> Oh, Hey Graham
19:35:31 <Cooper(Happy)> sorry was AFK for a minute
19:36:55 <Kat> Craig, That's a huge gift you're giving him, make him comfortable and just keep telling him that your there. Hugs buddy!
19:37:09 <Kat> Hey there Graham!
19:37:40 <ynpvisitor62> Not Graham it's roadie to you!!
19:38:05 <Kat> I'm so sorry! Hey Roadie! How the heck are you??
19:38:38 <ynpvisitor62> Trying to dig up some Vixen info
19:38:56 <Cooper(Happy)> Well, the day after that weird SB that I caught (June 15th) I went back to Norris, to find Emerald spring boiling lightly on the Right Side(North I think), Tantalus was clear with a 2 point boil, and Vixen was not erupting(it is one of my favorites) SO I waited for 45 Minutes to an Hour and then I left and went around the Basin again, when I walked by Emerald Spring it was not boiling (to be cont.
19:39:01 <Kat> Haha!
19:39:16 <Cooper(Happy)> Wait 62, you are not Graham?
19:39:53 <ynpvisitor62> nope not Graham
19:40:04 <ynpvisitor62> so you can only guess it wa 45-60 min?
19:40:35 <Cooper(Happy)> and instead it was just very, and I mean very slightly in Overflow. Tantalus was the same, and then when I walked back by Vixed it's cone was not wet at all(So it is likely that it did not Erupt) and I waited for another 45- 60 minutes, and then gave up
19:40:43 <ynpvisitor62> I have some times that day from CB - about what time was that?
19:40:59 <Cooper(Happy)> it was late in the evening
19:41:29 <Cooper(Happy)> It was getting close to dark, but not quite dark, and it was after that Rain storm
19:41:44 <Cooper(Happy)> this was on June 16th
19:41:51 <ynpvisitor62> OK thanks. The 16th right?
19:41:57 <Cooper(Happy)> Yup
19:41:58 <ynpvisitor62> haha you answered already
19:42:33 <ynpvisitor62> so you went by twice?
19:42:42 <Cooper(Happy)> Yes
19:43:11 <ynpvisitor62> but you don't think it erupted while you were gone
19:43:29 <Cooper(Happy)> I am not very familiar with the Vixen/ Porkchop geyser area, but I know what Vixen is, and what it looks like when IE. and I do not think it erupted while I was gone
19:44:21 <Cooper(Happy)> I know for certain that it did not have a Major, and I do not think it had a Minor(I am 99% Sure on the Minor, and 100% Sure on the Major)
19:44:34 <ynpvisitor62> OK thanks. I will put a note in my spreadsheet. About 8 or 9 pm?
19:44:54 <ynpvisitor62> think you were gone 30 min, 1 hr, or how long?
19:45:27 <Cooper(Happy)> about 25 to 30 min
19:45:55 <ynpvisitor62> ok, thanks
19:45:55 <Cooper(Happy)> So I do not think it erupted in that 130 to 150-ish minutes
19:46:19 <Cooper(Happy)> I got to Norris on that day at 7:10-ish I know that
19:46:44 <ynpvisitor62> 1910?
19:46:50 <Cooper(Happy)> yes
19:47:19 <Cooper(Happy)> sorry, forget the PM or to do Military Time sometimes
19:47:47 <ynpvisitor62> thanks. The next time I went was the 18th and my longest closed interval was 78 min
19:47:54 <Kat> Roadie - going to go here....talk soon! Thinking about a September trip out! Will call you when I get out there! :)
19:48:16 <Cooper(Happy)> Bye Kat
