05:24:18 <Rice> Morning Joe
05:25:09 <Joe1> Hi Rice
05:26:14 <Joe> cam all night
05:26:25 <Joe> terrible
05:27:49 <Rice> That sucks,
05:28:15 <Rice> What do you, that you can spend all night on the cam? Sorry but have wondered that for a while.
05:30:12 <Joe> I don't sleep much only when exhausted, so I have permission to do limited moves with the cam at night
05:30:36 <Rice> ok,
05:30:40 <Joe> Old , and retired
05:31:08 <Rice> Well we appreciate the time you put in, even if lately that cam is against you.
05:31:25 <Joe> Thanks :)
05:32:44 <Joe> But when the cam is fixed it will be very nice at ni:),
05:33:38 <Joe> night*
06:19:42 <Rice> Joe, Was the old Cam hardwired, or did it have a radio like this one?
06:20:06 <Joe> It was wired
06:21:51 <Joe> Directly to the router which was in the old Photo shop
06:23:41 <Cooper> Morning Everyone
06:23:44 <Cooper> Hey Graham
06:23:47 <GO MORNING> morning ... sorry they didnt get Morning last night
06:24:07 <Cooper> :(
06:24:24 <GO MORNING> maybe it will show up ... Mornings Thief was usually active with Ftn before Morning would erupt, so maybe we need that as well
06:24:39 <GO MORNING> no MT reports for the last few Ftn eruptions
06:28:09 <GO MORNING> Craig got his nighttime Ftn last night, lots of new experiences for him
06:29:15 <Joe> Possible Aurum on static
06:31:12 <Cooper> of
06:34:53 <Joe> Went to GH while I had an opportunity
06:35:09 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
06:46:43 <Cooper> Hi Craig
06:47:09 <CraigC> hey Cooper
06:47:17 <Cooper> where are you?
06:47:31 <CraigC> West Yellowstone, where are you?
06:47:37 <Cooper> Home
06:47:41 <CraigC> hey Joe, Hey Graham
06:47:59 <Cooper> Nice, planning to go into UGB today? maybe get Bee
06:48:21 <CraigC> Mornings Thief erupted last night with Ftn
06:48:46 <CraigC> we are probably headed to Lower, check Great Ftn and Ftn
06:48:46 <Cooper> how were Morning levels?
06:49:08 <CraigC> DARK
06:49:21 <Cooper> oh, right
06:51:18 <Cooper> do you have Pink/Pink Cone yet?
07:09:48 <GO MORNING> ah, ok Craig, good to hear that. Hopefully Morning shows up soon
07:10:53 <GO MORNING> no MT on GT ... but I guess we are not supposed to mention that any more ... haha
07:11:36 <ynpvisitor108> It isn't morning yet?
07:12:03 <GO MORNING> somewhere its not
07:12:33 <ynpvisitor108> I think that somewhere is here.
07:13:45 <ynpvisitor108> How come if a USB only has two ways to go in do you get the wrong way 9 out of 10 tries?
07:13:57 <GO MORNING> its not morning for Jarno .. but is for Betty since she relocated temporarily
07:14:03 <Cooper> hey Dave
07:14:08 <Dave from B™> haha 108. Me, too
07:14:19 <Cooper> do you know if Betty is in YNP?
07:14:23 <Cooper> yet
07:14:36 <GO MORNING> not yet
07:14:44 <Cooper> ok
07:14:50 <ynpvisitor108> I did get an email from here last night. Nice shots of Death Valley, Mono Lake, and the Keddie Wye.
07:14:53 <Joe> #108 that is why they are changing to USB-C
07:15:14 <ynpvisitor108> I think she was in Cartoon City last night.
07:15:25 <Dave from B™> Good morning to everyone. Room attacked again...some people just don't understand the pros and cons of chat rooms/social media.
07:15:49 <Cooper> when did it get attacked?
07:15:54 <Cooper> Hey Kevin
07:16:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
07:16:44 <Dave from B™> Attacking GT is more concerning
07:17:26 <Cooper> when did that happen?
07:17:27 <GO MORNING> there were no specifics so we shouldnt speculate
07:17:30 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:17:42 <CraigC> agree, Graham
07:17:54 <GO MORNING> we have no idea when it happened either, there was rference to a month ago
07:18:04 <CraigC> Dave from B™, btw, I don't bring my e-bike to YNP, I have my fat-tire mtn bike
07:18:39 <Dave from B™> CraigC, good to know. I was sorry I put that out there yesterday. I felt bad last night.
07:19:03 <CraigC> the fat tires are actually more work going out to Lone Star than a regular bike. I am going to fix up one of my old bikes for next year
07:19:23 <Dave from B™> Speaking of e bikes, how much do they wiegh?
07:19:36 <CraigC> no harm... if any person looks down on me riding an e-bike, that it their issue
07:19:58 <CraigC> mine weights about 50 lbs, it is pretty heavy, but it is full suspension
07:20:56 <Kevin L™🌵> That is pretty heavy. Must take a bit of man handling for it.
07:21:30 <Dave from B™> That is what we've been hearing on some RV sites; that they are too heavy to lift up onto a bike rack
07:21:38 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, yeah, getting it on my rack is a task on my back. Sometimes I keep the battery off until I get there
07:21:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Does the ebike have a system to charge the battery when coasting?
07:21:58 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, not yet, I wish they did
07:22:05 <Dave from B™> With limited suispension, how light can they get?
07:22:17 <CraigC> Dave from B™, not sure
07:23:02 <CraigC> just like this chat and ebikes, there would be less drama if people minded their own business and just enjoyed stuff how they choose
07:23:25 <Cooper> is Grotto ie?
07:23:52 <Dave from B™> As far as talking about being attacked, I think the bigger issue is how people deal with social media. CraigC, your response to how people view you riding an e bike is a perfect example. We can't let 1 person's judgement ruin social media. Some people can't get past those negative comments.
07:24:14 <Dave from B™> But, we need to be able to
07:24:36 <Dave from B™> If you can't let negative comments bounce off you than you probably don't belong on social media.
07:25:44 <Dave from B™> I've met MANY MANY MANY people here who I'm now happy to call friends. That is why I'm here. I work so harrd and long hours that this is the only place I have a chance to really meet people and I hate when it is constantly criticized.
07:25:51 <CraigC> Dave from B™, bingo
07:26:20 <CraigC> same, thus, I am still coming here, inspite of cam
07:26:30 <Dave from B™> CriagC, I'm so jealous of all the time you are spending in YNP. It sounds like you are having a great summer!
07:26:38 <Cooper> same here Craig
07:26:39 <CraigC> I am
07:26:55 <CraigC> now my mom and I are off to Lower Basin
07:27:05 <Cooper> ok, bye, enjoy
07:27:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Enjoy your day.
07:27:18 <CraigC> bye everyone
07:27:19 <Dave from B™> The cam...that is a horse of a different color. It is amazing we still have people sticking around here with the quality of the cam. Hopefully the new radio will help but many have doubts
07:27:22 <ynpvisitor59> This isn't a bad image for the cam to fail on.
07:27:41 <Dave from B™> bye CriagC. Good luck with Morning today
07:28:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Always with the negative waves Dave... Just think that is beautiful radio.
07:28:12 <Dave from B™> If Grham doesn't log on as GO MORNING today I will be shocked.
07:29:11 <Joe> Graham, allready did :)
07:29:28 <Dave from B™> :D
07:30:13 <Dave from B™> I must still be sleeping. These late nights staying up until 11-1130 and getting up at 5 are starting to take their toll.
07:31:05 <Dave from B™> In fact, I expect Morning around 1030-1100.
07:31:20 <Cooper> :daisy:
07:35:40 <Cooper> dep?
07:35:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it
07:38:19 <Cooper> well, off to school, be back in TA
07:58:11 <GO MORNING> Bronze Spring was wet and low .. maybe active?
08:00:25 <Dave from B™> Graham, what did you make of the Vault comments yesterday?
08:01:38 <GO MORNING> I noticed the water level was higher in may than usual. one can hope it will erupt .. but I think it's just hope
08:02:27 <Dave from B™> We all are anxious for Giantess to perform
08:03:42 <GO MORNING> yeah it would be great for it to erupt again ... the interval is way long now...maybe exchange of function with SB?
08:04:03 <Dave from B™> haha.
08:04:17 <Dave from B™> Didn't Bronze Spring erupt last week?
08:04:34 <GO MORNING> yes it did, looked nice on cam
08:04:39 <Joe> Yes
08:04:42 <Dave from B™> 2 eruptinos on Aug 16
08:04:47 <Dave from B™> oops 3
08:04:53 <GO MORNING> maybe the rise in Vault is related to it too, higher water in South side
08:05:06 <Joe> And we have two videos
08:05:35 <GO MORNING> or another BSB impact
08:06:10 <GO MORNING> first video had a really nice burst and splashing
08:07:09 <Joe> Castle
08:07:56 <GO MORNING> if you missed it Dave, Castle had a wonderful backlit eruption last night and the cam stayed up for most of it
08:08:34 <Dave from B™> Thanks. I did miss it. I don't read chat log when I'm not on.
08:10:41 <GO MORNING> so you dont see all the badmouthing when you are away?
08:12:56 <Dave from B™> Maybe....mostly I just don't have time.
08:27:26 <Cooper> TA'ing, and the teacher has a substitute, so I get to do this, homework, and the class and I get to watch a movie
08:29:05 <LindaG> Good morning all
08:29:29 <Cooper> Hey Kubs HEY
08:29:31 <Cooper> Wow
08:29:37 <Cooper> Hey Linda Hey**
08:29:50 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
08:29:56 <Cooper> my finger was one key to the left
08:31:00 <LindaG> Oh kubs was supposed to be linda? Wow welcome to the I can't type club lol
08:33:52 <Cooper> Hey Katie
08:34:00 <Cooper> Aha, I got that one right
08:34:11 <Katie> G'mornin'
08:34:25 <Cooper> yes, Kubs was supposed to be Linda
08:34:34 <Dave from B™> Morning Katie, I'm heading to your area tomorrow
08:35:12 <Katie> And I'm leaving tonight - uncle in MT for visit, so going to Anaconda
08:36:46 <Cooper> I would like Bee right now:)
08:37:02 <Dave from B™> It's best to leave town when I go somewhere:)
08:37:33 <Katie> I don't think so
08:37:50 <Cooper> It is for the deer.
08:37:53 <Cooper> :)
08:38:29 <Dave from B™> haha
08:39:01 <Cooper> Eventually they will revolt:)
08:39:56 <Katie> 10 minutes - it took me 10 minutes to be able to log in
08:40:22 <Cooper> :(
08:41:36 <Cooper> Maybe the new Radio will work(optimism) but I have many doubts
08:42:23 <Katie> Well, the bodies working on the flag pole confirmed RF interference. They absorbed it when they were there and the cam ran smoother. So, we need a frequency that won't get trampled on.
08:42:49 <Cooper> so do you think the new radio will help?
08:44:04 <Katie> I think it's worth a try and that some radios will work - and I hope the ones (set - one at each end) will!
08:44:21 <Cooper> wait, they are setting one at each end?
08:44:41 <Katie> Yup. That's the way it works. The other end is the ranger station.
08:44:55 <Cooper> Great ... Thanks
08:44:57 <Cooper> !!!
08:45:19 <Katie> They are trying different models.
08:45:27 <Cooper> Hopefully that works,
08:45:35 <Cooper> I would love a functioning cam!
08:52:12 <Cooper> Bulger
08:59:41 <Cooper> Well, I have to go, c'ya all later.
09:00:10 <Katie> Have a good morning, Cooper
09:20:28 <Betty> Morning all
09:20:40 <Katie> Hello, Betty!
09:20:45 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
09:21:06 <Betty> Hi Katie, Dave from B™
09:21:59 <Dave from B™> wHERE ARE YOU TODAY?
09:22:22 <Betty> Coast is foggy this morning
09:22:41 <Betty> Near eureka
09:23:33 <Dave from B™> Redwoods are fun
09:24:10 <Betty> Headed to redwood ntl park today, then going north on costal Highway to Portland
09:24:34 <Katie> Beautiful drive!
09:24:58 <Betty> We hopefully meet Eric tomorrow or the day after
09:25:11 <GO MORNING> :thumbsup:
09:25:29 <Betty> I hope it clears for the day
09:25:52 <Betty> All we can see atm is fog
09:26:28 <Dave from B™> Oregon coast is awesome. Sand Dunes at Florence are nice. Cannon Beach and Ecola State Park is also fun.
09:26:28 <Betty> Hi Graham, are you packed?
09:28:23 <Betty> Thomas says hello too
09:28:46 <Dave from B™> Hi Thomas
09:29:07 <Betty> Hi Dave
09:29:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty. Nice pics
09:29:30 <Betty> Hi Kevin
09:30:01 <Betty> I was impressed you recognized that track
09:30:38 <Betty> We saw it just by chance
09:31:07 <Kevin L™🌵> VERY famous landmark.
09:31:25 <Kevin L™🌵> One of HK's favorite spots.
09:31:39 <Betty> We did not know anything about it
09:32:31 <Betty> We saw a chair chained to a tree. Maybe it was his 😀
09:32:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Not a common place for passenger trains so any ride there is a treat.
09:33:46 <Kevin L™🌵> The whole Feather River Canyon has lots of beautiful bridges and even a loop where the track loops over the top of itself to gain elevation.
09:34:20 <Betty> Yeah, we saw the loops too
09:34:52 <Betty> And the bridges of course
09:35:19 <Rice> Betty, We were in Redwood park 2 weeks ago, great place.
09:35:45 <Betty> And a hot spring shaped like orange mound spring
09:35:49 <GO MORNING> not packed yet Betty, but the suitcase is out along with a whole lot of crap
09:36:44 <Betty> Hi Rice. Maybe I still can see your footprints
09:36:58 <Teri> gm all
09:37:10 <Teri> hey Betty, I saw that you are stateside!
09:37:14 <Teri> hope you
09:37:22 <Teri> re having a great trip
09:38:09 <Betty> Hi Teri, we have
09:38:54 <Teri> I picked up an OF lodge cancellation and added a day in West; third weekend in Sept, but I think you'll be gone by then
09:39:03 <Betty> Though we spend a lot of time on the car we see a lot of things
09:39:14 <Katie> Riverside IE
09:39:33 <Dave from B™> I'll be cancelling 3 room sets for next year as soon as we get Madison CG lodging
09:39:42 <Betty> We leave West tuesday after LD
09:39:45 <Teri> plus you have the flexibility for side trips
09:39:50 <Dave from B™> I'm going to miss staying at OF
09:40:18 <Teri> OF is certainly convenient for the UGB
09:40:31 <Katie> I'm overdue for a stay at OFI. It's been a LONG time.
09:41:08 <Teri> nice to be able to walk out for some nighttime gazing
09:42:07 <Betty> Ok, time to leave for heading north. I see SB went, so I hope it waits for us. Bye all
09:42:19 <Teri> I wish I was close enough for day trips to the Park, but a 2-day drive with relatives enroute works out well
09:43:03 <Teri> good luck, I'm hoping for an SB too; this past eruption was reported to be shorter, but amazingly high
09:43:17 <Teri> Craig posted pics on FB
09:43:30 <Teri> safe travels Betty!
09:43:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Have fun Betty
09:45:37 <Dave from B™> Katie, OFI Old House are now over $170 a night
09:46:53 <Katie> that's a big part of why it's been so long. I camp to be able to afford more trips/nights in the Park. Since I enjoy camping, that's a double-win. But I do enjoy the occasional novelty of stays at the lodging in the park.
09:47:49 <Dave from B™> High YNP lodging prices actually started our road to a ClassB van. I can't wait to get it next week.
09:48:37 <Katie> That will be great for you. Congrats!
09:48:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Lodging rates sure out paced my retirement check.
09:49:18 <Dave from B™> Pluis, we want to travel throughout the West exploring other parks as well
09:50:00 <Katie> We bought a travel trailer a few years ago. I haven't towed it to Yellowstone even once, yet. I like driving my Jeep more than the truck (I can fit it in more roadside parking) and I'm still comfortable in my "Jeep bed."
09:50:33 <Katie> I know some day my body will want a bed and a handy toilet. When that time comes, I'll start taking the trailer. But I'm going to sleep in my Jeep bed as long as I can.
09:52:52 <Katie> Before I bought the Jeep (3 yrs ago), I tent camped. Every now and then I'm nostalgic for that. I thought I might do that this summer when I had the entire top off the Jeep, but the weather has been so unsettled that I never got around to removing the entire top (I've removed the front half of the roof - the "Freedom Panels" often).
09:57:56 <Dave from B™> Yeah...we definitely are past the tent camping stage. We did it once this year but I need a little more cushion on my bed
09:58:41 <Kevin L™🌵> My idea of roughing it is a motel without cable TV and WiFi.
10:00:06 <Dave from B™> That is roughing it!
10:00:59 <Katie> Have fun "driving," Kevin.
10:01:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I spent 4 years sleeping in tents, shelves, mud, snow, etc. Don't care for it.
10:01:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks Katie.
10:18:41 <Teri> Katie - I never stay at the Inn, too pricey for me, but the cabins are still a relative "bargain", especially if you can get the ones w/out bath, but they sell out first
10:19:36 <Katie> Staying in the Inn is only a rare occasional treat. And it's been at least 15 years since I last such treated myself.
10:21:28 <Teri> It is an amazing building
10:22:04 <Dave from B™> I plan on using the mezzanine often even though we may never stay there again
10:22:45 <Dave from B™> I have question for everyone. Can you cook in your camper van in a parking lot...ie Norris or UGB?
10:23:25 <Katie> I have cocktails on the mezzanine at OFI (sometimes I BYOB there) and at Lake without staying now and then. :)
10:23:44 <Katie> Sure you can.
10:23:47 <Teri> I vaguely remember being in a room without bath when I was a kid and my parents brought me to the park for the first time; the next night we stayed in a cabin (not at OF) and I remember my Grandmother cooking breakfast (wood stove?); this would have been in the late 50s or early 60s
10:24:08 <Dave from B™> Yep. We always BYOB at both locations. We even ask the bar for wine glasses and get them everytime
10:25:07 <Teri> I cooked on a 2-burner Coleman gas (pump tank) in the Norris parking lot, when I drove through enroute to Cincinnati in the 70s
10:26:42 <GO MORNING> i have seen some bicycle tour groups set up a big spread in the parking lots before
10:27:20 <Teri> I remember there was a picnic table that we set up on
10:27:47 <GO MORNING> and there are picnic tables outside lower hams
10:27:52 <Teri> gm Graham!
10:28:02 <GO MORNING> :)
10:28:04 <Dave from B™> We do love eating out when we travel but it won't be every night now that we can cook ourselves
10:28:29 <GO MORNING> also tables and chairs outside Snow Lodge on the VEC side
10:29:18 <Teri> I always pack a cooler with travel eats (cheese, salami, crackers) for those nights that you miss the closing times of the restaurants, plus appropriate beverages, lol
10:31:38 <Katie> The last time I actually stayed at OFI, most of the group rode bicycles from West and we had a couple "sag wagon" vehicles with luggage and coolers. We brought our coolers with drinks and appetizers up to the mezzanine and the whole group of us spent several hours there with the drinks and apps out of our coolers. It was a wonderful evening!
10:32:46 <Katie> Subsets at at OFI or the cafeteria - we "went our own way" for actual dinner. My subset at in the OFI dining room and then went right back up the mezzanine.
10:32:48 <Teri> nice, that's quite a ride from West
10:33:00 <Teri> for a non-biker that is
10:33:07 <GO MORNING> there will probably be a gazer takover of the Lodge on 31st - the annual LD cheese an whine party
10:33:22 <Dave from B™> And, I love the Lake Hotel lobby as well. Many great memories there; especially before gazing pulled me westward
10:34:17 <Teri> my daughter did the RAMROD for the second time this year - Ride Around Mt Rainier in One Day, 10k feet of climbing, 152 miles
10:34:33 <Dave from B™> Teri, that sounds painful
10:35:40 <Teri> she's also done a 1/2 Iron Man (person); run, swim, bike; she was not athletic as a youth; she's also ropes 2 certified
10:36:10 <Katie> The degree of strenuous of the ride from West - UGB & back the next day depends largely on the wind. Several of us (myself included), skipped the ride up the Firehole, or at least part of it. I'm a wimp.
10:37:10 <Katie> We used to do that annually. Some years I biked, some I drove one of the sag wagons. I always wimped out going up the Firehole - I'd start up it and peter out and get a ride to the top and then get back on the bike.
10:37:19 <Teri> there's a fair amount of elevation on that FH canyon rode; but beautiful; I met someone who said he used to swim at the swimming hole as a kid
10:38:42 <Teri> http://www.redmondcyclingclub.org/RAMROD/RAMROD_course_information.html#Course_Description
10:39:17 <Teri> a big cycling event here in the PNW; long wait list for the lottery unless you volunteer the previous year (many do)
10:39:47 <Dave from B™> Yep. There is a big hill when you leave Madison and heat south
10:40:27 <Katie> Yup, and I want to arrive at UGB with enough energy left to walk the basin and enjoy cocktail hour on the mezzanine. :) So... Doing that trip with a bunch of fit pharmacists, nurses and physical therapists who cycle daily and do triathlons and all that is humbling. But... so it goes.
10:40:28 <Teri> off for home improvement chores; patching, priming, and painting a new door and trims; have a great one all; hope the cam works for the am BH
10:43:38 <GO MORNING> Ftn, no Morning
10:47:28 <Dave from B™> Katie, I think it is cool that you do it anyway
10:49:26 <Katie> we haven't done it for a few years - not since my bil (who had been the pharmacy manager at MSU) moved to Missoula and isn't in daily contact with that group anymore. They were good company. :)
11:18:11 <ynpvisitor33> Bulger
11:31:05 <Cooper> So sounds like Bee went overnight
11:31:24 <Cooper> they said someone heard something near 0327
11:33:04 <Cooper> Which would put it at near 17 hour interval, so it will go again, if it did go overnight, it will go later this evening, but who knows
11:33:55 <Cooper> hey Craig
11:33:56 <Cooper> wb
11:34:16 <CraigC> Hey Cooper
11:34:22 <Cooper> you get GF?
11:34:32 <Cooper> or Fountain
11:34:44 <CraigC> Fountain
11:34:52 <Cooper> nice
11:35:00 <Cooper> your Mom get it?
11:35:06 <CraigC> yup
11:35:54 <Cooper> nice
11:36:19 <LindaG> Cooper, CraigC, hi
11:36:52 <Cooper> Hi Linda
11:36:57 <Cooper> Where are you now Craig?
11:37:05 <CraigC> having early lunch at lower hams
11:37:09 <CraigC> Hey Linda
11:37:32 <LindaG> CraigC, love your pics!
11:38:24 <CraigC> Thanks, the overlook was amazing, incredible lighting and clouds
11:38:48 <Cooper> where are you going next, at least where do you think you are heading?
11:39:15 <LindaG> Looked amazing
11:41:00 <Cooper> I wonder when Aurum will go?
11:41:15 <Cooper> none reported today
11:41:59 <ynpvisitor28> sometime in the next five hours, I'd guess.
11:42:09 <Katie (in&out)> Often, us "steam gazers" are the ones to report Aurum and the stream hasn't been very cooperative in that regard.
11:42:09 <Cooper> Or Giantess, I would like Giantess
11:42:12 <CraigC> ciao
11:42:27 <Cooper> that is true
11:42:35 <Cooper> Bye Craig
11:43:14 <Katie (in&out)> I'd prefer Giantess wait until, preferably, I'm there, or barring that, when the camlink is working reliably.
11:43:20 <ynpvisitor28> Giantess, sometime in the next five years, I hope with crossed fingers.
11:44:06 <Cooper> How about, Giantess, Giant, F & M, SB, NG, and Ledge go for me from June 4th through 14th next summer.
11:45:17 <Cooper> well, I have to go, be back during my Lunch break
11:45:29 <Cooper> .
11:45:29 <Cooper> .
11:45:30 <Cooper> .
11:45:30 <Katie (in&out)> Okay... that's a period I'm often in the Park, too. :) Have a good afternoon.
11:45:31 <Cooper> Lion
11:45:31 <ynpvisitor28> Lion
11:45:33 <Katie (in&out)> Lion
11:45:38 <Cooper> I can wait a minute
11:46:09 <Cooper> thank you Lion, you are another wonderful addition to my day
11:47:02 <Cooper> ugg, someone, that claims he goes to YNP a Lot just said, what is that? OF:(
11:47:25 <Cooper> now I actually have to go. GO LION!
12:39:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. It finally moved!
12:39:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Got a whole 30 seconds.
12:40:21 <LindaG> Lol did you get all the geysers I those 30 seconds?
12:40:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I saw some people move a bit.
12:41:03 <LindaG> Its up
12:41:21 <LindaG> That's how I know when it's up the people move
12:41:24 <Kevin L™🌵> It has been horrible today.
12:41:44 <LindaG> 🙁 Friday for me was horrible
12:42:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Is today the day pixelcaster was moving servers?
12:42:23 <LindaG> Not sure
12:43:13 <ynpvisitor...> We need to recruit volunteers to go up and stand on the widows walk.
12:43:16 <ynpvisitor27> It was done the other day, did not help :(
12:43:18 <LindaG> Email says the 20th
12:43:28 <Dave from B™> Full time flag raiser
12:43:55 <LindaG> Antenna with aluminum foil?
12:44:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Tin cans & string?
12:45:08 <LindaG> Ain't looking good for this Friday either 🙁
12:46:07 <LindaG> Does this make us crazy? Doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results, and never changing anything.
12:46:09 <GO MORNING> i see we have just dropped to 50 SB eruptions in the last 12 months
12:46:31 <GO MORNING> that was the last of the long interval disturbance eruptions last year
12:46:33 <LindaG> Dropped?
12:46:43 <GO MORNING> we were at 51
12:47:32 <GO MORNING> there was a SB 22 Aug 1143 last year
12:48:10 <GO MORNING> if it picks up to 3 day intervals again we may jump to 52 or more :)
12:54:26 <Cooper> Hello again everyone
12:57:48 <Cooper> missed Aurum
13:07:59 <Cooper> Lion
13:07:59 <Cooper> .
13:07:59 <Cooper> .
13:09:44 <Cooper> Thx again Lion
13:18:07 <ynpvisitor...> Thank you William
13:18:57 <Cooper> Time for Math, bye
13:19:37 <ynpvisitor...> Learning how to make change is a lost art :)
13:20:14 <ynpvisitor...> I guess that's arithmetic :)
13:24:37 <Dave from B™> Kent, tell me about it. We had someone 2 years ago who got mad becuase we let her go. She was a cheker and couldn't count change...AFTER A WEEK of trying to
13:26:41 <ynpvisitor...> It is sad. I am always embarrassed for the clerk.
13:27:26 <ynpvisitor107> There's a reason so many checkers will literally count the change as they're laying it out. It prevents a lot of mistakes.
13:27:39 <Dave from B™> I don't even really count change. I can subtract 2 numbers and then give them the right change
13:28:14 <Dave from B™> 107, I'm saying she couldn't even do it if you told her how much change to give back
13:28:31 <Dave from B™> I can still see the blank look in her face
13:29:07 <ynpvisitor103> maybe that should be part of the interview process
13:30:08 <Dave from B™> 103, we actually do a working 2nd interview for all of our jobs now to prevent this type of thing. It works well.
13:32:34 <ynpvisitor107> Then there's hard arithmetic, like adding 19 hours to predict Beehive.
13:33:19 <Dave from B™> Time math can be a challenge
13:33:34 <ynpvisitor...> There's an app for that :)
13:37:03 <Dave from B™> hahaha
13:37:10 <ynpvisitor103> and then what if i want my money back after that prediction?
13:37:44 <ynpvisitor107> Then we have a problem.
14:09:02 <Dave from B™> Aug 30 is the Grand Reopening of the Maooth Hotel
14:09:14 <Dave from B™> Who took the "m"'s?
14:09:19 <Dave from B™> Mammoth*
14:09:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Kyle has them.
14:10:26 <Dave from B™> haha. Almost time for the playoffs:)
14:12:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion ie
14:20:43 <ynpvisitor25> Daisy
15:05:50 <LindaG> I hate when im stare at the x for a while and then realize the cam is up
15:06:10 <Dave from B™> up for what....50 seconds?
15:06:21 <Dave from B™> How dare you fall daydream for that long!!!:D
15:06:26 <LindaG> Dave from B™, hehe I think so
15:06:39 <Kevin L™🌵> It doesn't last long.
15:07:11 <LindaG> I just happened to notice the green indicator
15:08:07 <LindaG> Green again
15:11:38 <LindaG> Bulger
15:18:22 <LindaG> Hi michael
15:18:37 <Michael> Hi Linda
15:19:18 <LindaG> Bulger still goi g
15:22:26 <Michael> I think Turban is going. But I'm never quite sure.
15:22:58 <LindaG> I can never figure out where turban is
15:23:43 <LindaG> Is it that steam to left of Spasmodic
15:24:21 <LindaG> ormimshould say in back,of spasmodic
15:24:30 <LindaG> Cant type
15:24:36 <Michael> It's producing most of the steam from the Grand area right now. So yes, up and left from Spasmodic.
15:24:52 <LindaG> Ok thanks
15:25:17 <Michael> On a nice day you can sometimes see water splashes in the gap between the trees.
15:25:36 <Michael> But only the the cam is zoomed a bit and in focus.
15:26:53 <Dave from B™> Hi Michael
15:27:03 <Michael> Hi JSJ. Hi Dave.
15:27:13 <JSJ> Howdy folks.
15:27:19 <LindaG> JSJ, hi
15:27:59 <JSJ> Back in Ohio. Done with Yellowstone for the year, sadly.
15:28:35 <LindaG> Sorry to hear that, be you had a good time though
15:28:47 <LindaG> *-bet
15:28:54 <JSJ> Saw 12 new geysers in August. That's always welcome
15:29:05 <LindaG> 👍
15:29:13 <JSJ> All were UNNGs, except for Churn and Middle Sister.
15:29:36 <JSJ> Been trying to get Churn since 2013.
15:30:00 <LindaG> How often do you go to YNP?
15:30:13 <JSJ> Usually 2 weeks in June & 2 weeks in August.
15:30:33 <JSJ> My university starts classes in mid-August, so can't do fall time.
15:31:20 <LindaG> Too many geysers not enough time? 😊
15:31:29 <JSJ> Exactly!
15:31:37 <JSJ> Gives me something to look forward to next season.
15:31:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Or money
15:31:49 <JSJ> Yep.
15:31:54 <LindaG> Sure. Well it's great you got churn
15:32:12 <JSJ> It finally paid off. I saw a 2-eruption series in August.
15:32:24 <JSJ> Full splashing and everything. Stoked.
15:32:28 <LindaG> My schedule trios get me through the winter
15:32:40 <ynpvisitor117> It sounds like Churn is a challenge to catch?
15:32:47 <JSJ> There's always the web camera, when it's up & running.
15:33:08 <JSJ> Thankfully, people have been reporting Churn activity this season.
15:33:14 <JSJ> I sat on it 2 days in August.
15:33:19 <Dave from B™> Up and running...what's that?
15:33:26 <LindaG> Churn is tough on the cam I think, can sort of get close
15:33:41 <LindaG> But not close enough imthink
15:33:43 <JSJ> "Up & running" is what one expects from technology in America in the 21st century.
15:33:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Eat a package of prunes Dave and you will know.
15:34:26 <Dave from B™> JSJ, it is what we expect but not what YF, NPS and others deliver.
15:34:26 <JSJ> Bagged Middle Sister too - totally unexpected. Didn't last long. A couple days. But I saw quite a few.
15:34:37 <ynpvisitor117> Headed to Grand 2 weeks ago I walked up to Churn - saw some convection and then eruption. Didn't know I was that lucky
15:34:58 <JSJ> I was lucky to see two Bulger's Hole eruptions this season - in June & August.
15:35:07 <JSJ> That's one advantage to sitting on Churn - BH can show itself.
15:35:09 <LindaG> ynpvisitor117, how high does it erupt?
15:35:55 <Michael> It's really interesting the way that Churn almost didn't notice that the rest of the Sawmill Complex is broken.
15:35:59 <LindaG> ynpvisitor117, Churn that is
15:36:36 <JSJ> We all miss Sawmill and company, but events like that do make for other interesting behaviors to watch.
15:37:50 <ynpvisitor117> Churn was around 5 to 10 feet - somewhat brief duration
15:38:11 <JSJ> That's consistent with what I saw.
15:38:12 <ynpvisitor117> I have a hard time with judging hights of geyser eruptions
15:38:28 <JSJ> I used an inclinometer this season to get some heights.
15:38:45 <JSJ> Some were surprisingly high - others were a bit disappointing.
15:39:11 <JSJ> I'd like to measure Steamboat, but I didn't catch it this year.
15:40:46 <JSJ> Old Faithful i.e.
15:41:31 <LindaG> ynpvisitor117, thx. 5-10 feet surely could be seen on cam. I havent caught it yet.somethimg to strive for. 😊
15:43:19 <ynpvisitor117> I announded Churn and was surprised by numbers that turned from Grand to catch it. After Grand abount 15 gazers gathered at Churn
15:43:44 <ynpvisitor117> Unfortunatly no more activity
15:44:05 <JSJ> Churn's actually a great place to sit & watch.
15:44:15 <JSJ> There's an extended boardwalk platform there.
15:44:24 <JSJ> Can watch Bulger, Old Tardy, Grand, etc.
15:44:53 <Michael> Grand reported out in the field.
15:44:58 <LindaG> Sounds nice, a lot happening right there
15:45:44 <LindaG> Oh missing gramd
15:46:15 <LindaG> Yay
15:47:00 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
15:47:47 <Michael> Good thing Grand lasts a while.
15:48:01 <LindaG> Yup
15:50:46 <LindaG> Staring at that darn x again
15:50:53 <Kevin L™🌵> 8m
15:52:43 <LindaG> Dont forget this Sunday is free national park day
15:53:01 <LindaG> 2nd?
15:53:06 <Michael> I think so.
15:53:25 <JSJ> Haven't seen one of those in real life in a while.
15:53:47 <Kevin L™🌵> It looked like it.
15:53:55 <Michael> They're probably about as frequent as Churn eruptions these days.
15:54:02 <LindaG> Yeah seemed to pause
15:55:18 <LindaG> William entered grand
15:56:02 <Kevin L™🌵> No code yet.
15:56:04 <LindaG> Yup a second
15:56:11 <ynpvisitor117> definite pause - but water suspended above trees is really different from in person pause :)
15:57:12 <LindaG> Hi kat
16:00:06 <Kat> Afternoon/Evening all!
16:00:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
16:00:47 <Michael> Hi Kat.

16:53:25 <Kat> LC
17:01:06 <Cooper> Nice looking storm back there
17:10:46 <Kat> OF
17:23:51 <LindaG> We need an aurum
17:24:00 <Cooper> I agree
17:24:07 <Kevin L™🌵> With a working cam
17:24:29 <LindaG> Cant have everything 😉
17:24:58 <Kevin L™🌵> We could be close to a BH
17:25:28 <Cooper> Bee Splash
17:25:34 <Cooper> AB
17:25:41 <LindaG> Oh that would be nice, figured it all ready erupted
17:26:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Think it went early this morning.
17:26:12 <Cooper> Kitt said that she heard something at like 0327, likely Bee
17:26:24 <LindaG> Oh ok
17:27:00 <LindaG> Lc ie
17:28:16 <Cooper> I would like Giantess:)
17:31:00 <ynpvisitor78> hey guys, when did Aurum last go?
17:31:18 <Cooper> 4 Hours, and 46 Minutes Ago
17:31:23 <Cooper> at like 12:45 I think
17:31:38 <ynpvisitor78> when will it erupt again?
17:32:03 <Cooper> sometime in the next 2 hours:)
17:32:09 <Kevin L™🌵> When nobody is watching it.
17:32:20 <ynpvisitor78> ok
17:33:42 <ynpvisitor78> hey, what are the names of these geysers?
17:33:50 <Cooper> This is Geyser Hill
17:34:00 <Kat> Median interval time is 8 hours,mean is 10. Anyone's guess!
17:34:15 <Cooper> you have all sorts of them.. like to cone on the right is dome, the big one on the left is Lion
17:34:33 <ynpvisitor78> oh, heard good things about lion
17:34:49 <Cooper> that cone in the middle, near this side is Beehive, and A bit to the left of it near the back of the Hill is Aurum
17:34:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is a link with the major items: https://chat.geysertimes.org/images/ugbWebcamReferencePanorama.png
17:34:59 <Cooper> Lion is great
17:35:49 <ynpvisitor78> oh cool
17:36:37 <Cooper> so, this is off topic, but any bets on when sawmill resurrects?
17:37:04 <Cooper> Hey Graham
17:37:21 <GO MORNING> hello .... did i miss anything
17:37:32 <Cooper> a dead cam
17:37:39 <Cooper> or dying cam
17:41:29 <GO MORNING> have they given up on Bee?
17:41:58 <Cooper> THey have
17:42:02 <Cooper> I think
17:44:01 <lc> I have a question about GT.
17:44:45 <GO MORNING> ?
17:44:52 <lc> if entry is deleted is it still in GT.
17:44:52 <Cooper> what is it?
17:45:18 <GO MORNING> if they are flagged i think they are still there
17:45:27 <GO MORNING> not sure tho
17:46:00 <lc> say an entry from a year ago got deleted would anyone be able to find that entry.
17:46:06 <lc> and who?
17:46:37 <lc> who should I ask?
17:46:41 <Kat> That's a question for Jake I think. I'm not sure.
17:46:50 <GO MORNING> the admins may be ale to find them, they would likely need some info. Jake, Eric, Will
17:46:55 <lc> Eric, Jake, Will
17:47:03 <ynpvisitor65> I think deleted entries are gone forever
17:47:39 <GO MORNING> they get flags added 65 - not sure if they end up getting deleted or just hhidden
17:47:55 <lc> what I am looking for may have been flagged, not sure.
17:48:29 <GO MORNING> thats the way users can make things vanish from the lists. I am sure admins can actually delete the database rows
17:48:51 <lc> where has Eric been lately anyway.
17:49:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Mt Fitz
17:50:06 <GO MORNING> hae not seen him around ... he was doing college visits but not sure thats whats hhappening now. he has posted on FB - he hiked Mt St Helens last weekend or so
17:50:40 <lc> ok, thanks.
17:51:30 <lc> Graham, SB is getting lined up for us, I just feel it.:p
17:51:41 <Kat> :)
17:52:24 <GO MORNING> hopefully the intervals will be les than a week, so at least one LD week ..... hoping for Sunday and then another on Sat ... haha

17:53:23 <lc> that is what I am hoping for

18:18:12 <Kat> Who knows!
18:21:06 <LindaG> No more bronze spring eruptions I guess
18:21:52 <GO MORNING> nothing reported but it does that ... a few eruptions and thendone for a while
