05:17:36 <Rice> I feel like I am all alone.
05:38:32 <Rice> I guess I am going to leave, no one here, no Webcam. Be back later, Yes I am tlaking to myself!!
06:22:26 <KittyM> So the cam has been down for a long time?
06:23:36 <Korben / Cooper> Ugg
06:23:49 <Korben / Cooper> still dead
06:27:22 <Korben / Cooper> This is useless, bbl maybe
06:58:50 <Kat> HI Kevin! Cam is really bad!
06:59:21 <Kevin L™> So it is working like normal?
06:59:35 <Kat> :)
07:00:03 <Kevin L™> This is getting really old
07:01:04 <Kat> IT is - It's very hard to sit and watch this and try to make it from geyser to geyser!
07:21:51 <Kat> Thank goodness there's someone in the basin!
07:27:35 <KittyM> Wow
07:36:25 <Kat> Other than not having a cam - could this get antmore frustrating??
07:36:34 <Kat> anymore*
07:50:59 <Kat> AL
07:52:14 <ynpvisitor> Is that the problem, the cam is as old as Kevin?
07:52:53 <Kat> Could be! :)
07:54:07 <Dave from B™> SB today or tomorrow?
07:54:21 <ynpvisitor37> Be careful Dave from B, Kevin is only 9 years older than you :)
07:54:41 <Dave from B™> Are we allowed to speculate?
07:55:01 <Dave from B™> However, I'll never catch him, 37!
07:55:06 <Kat> I say tomorrow for SB
07:55:16 <ynpvisitor> This is about geyser science, no speculating.
07:55:46 <Dave from B™> Or do we need to say, this speculating is provided by GT entries by Lori S and bbev
08:01:44 <Betty> At least Sb has to wait 4 hrs
08:04:42 <Betty> Morning all
08:05:41 <Dave from B™> Hi, Betty. First day in YNP today?
08:05:51 <Kat> Hi Betty! Having fun?
08:06:18 <Dave from B™> I'm expecting it late today or early tomorrow
08:06:25 <Betty> We headed there soon from Idaho Falls
08:06:27 <ynpvisitor37> Hi Betty, enjoy YNP during your visit, I hope you catch many geysers
08:06:52 <Dave from B™> How late do you plan on staying at SB today?
08:07:34 <Betty> I hope i can wake up F&M, Giant and giantess
08:08:02 <ynpvisitor> Betty, Dave should head down soon after you get there. It has worked in the past.
08:08:07 <Kat> That would be great!
08:08:23 <Dave from B™> haha Kent
08:08:51 <Dave from B™> There is a chance we may do a 1 day to SB next Sunday if it lines up
08:08:57 <Betty> No plans about how long we stay. Depends on who is saving us from bears 😀
08:09:42 <Betty> Oh that would be great, Dave
08:10:49 <Dave from B™> Look for the bearded guy....He will protect you!:)
08:11:03 <Betty> :thumbsup:
08:11:40 <Betty> We had fun with Eric the other day in Portland
08:14:03 <Dave from B™> I'm glad you guys got together. Did je take you on a hike or just a pub crawl?
08:14:31 <ynpvisitor> Can't you pub hike?
08:15:26 <ynpvisitor37> Starts as a hike, ends with a crawl ;)
08:15:36 <Dave from B™> :D
08:17:35 <Betty> We were out to dinner. Eric came back from, how did he call it? - fast run to the glaciers on Mt Rainier 😀
08:17:58 <ynpvisitor> Would be easy for me to hike. They do not brew much worth drinking unless you like grapefruit beer.
08:22:30 <ynpvisitor> Well, no bee, hope the cam stays broke like this the rest of the day.
08:22:30 <Kat> AL
08:22:41 <Kat> Me too!
08:23:32 <Betty> Time to head to the working side of the cam. Bye all
08:25:25 <Cooper> Hey Betty!
08:25:28 <Cooper> in YNP yet?
08:25:40 <Cooper> Hi All.
08:26:12 <Cooper> oh Betty left:)
08:26:43 <Cooper> so, glad she is going to be in YNP this evening, or tommorow!
08:27:21 <Dave from B™> Betty will be early afternoon
08:27:28 <Dave from B™> in YNP*
08:28:33 <Cooper> This cam is still about as bad as ever
08:28:41 <Cooper> I thought they were fixing it???
08:29:13 <Cooper> Hi Mike
08:34:25 <Cooper> is that temp wrong? 28
08:34:29 <Cooper> F
08:35:37 <Dave from B™> Cooper, based on lack of steam...temp is most likely not 28F at 100% Humidity
08:35:51 <Dave from B™> Good catch
08:36:08 <Cooper> Thx
08:36:13 <Cooper> it seemed odd
08:38:20 <Cooper> 33 with 77% is also not likely, but that is possible
08:38:25 <Kat> 38 degrees
08:38:35 <Cooper> 38**
08:38:42 <Cooper> that is more likely
08:39:31 <Dave from B™> Thanks makes more sense
08:40:16 <Cooper> Bee 0550? on GT
08:42:15 <Cooper> did everyone enjoy Christmas yesterday?
08:43:59 <ynpvisitor4> Christmas?
08:44:09 <Cooper> yesterday
08:44:23 <Cooper> is Kevin on here?
08:44:35 <Cooper> Hey Linda
08:44:41 <LindaG> This must be boxing day!
08:44:47 <LindaG> Hi

08:44:53 <Katie> G'mornin'
08:44:56 <Cooper> Hi Katie
08:45:25 <ynpvisitor4> I Did Not Know That (about Christmas)
08:45:44 <Kat> Hi Linda, katie and all!
08:45:45 <Katie> Whoa... Just looked at the logged eruptions. Anemones very busy, huh?
08:46:15 <Cooper> I still do not get it 100% but just roll with it:)
08:46:30 <Kat> They sure have
08:46:55 <Korben> No Morning Report in quite a while:(
08:47:10 <LindaG> Hi Cooper, Kat, Katie, Dave from B™, and numbers
08:47:33 <LindaG> And any one else 😃
08:50:16 <Kat> :)
08:50:24 <Korben> SB today, or Tomorrow, or the next day. or in the next year:p
08:52:01 <GO BOXING DAY> morning
08:52:10 <Korben> Hi Graham
08:52:12 <Kat> Hey Graham
08:52:31 <Korben> Korben beat me to it.:)
08:52:38 <Korben> oh.. that is me:p
08:53:09 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham
08:53:19 <GO BOXING DAY> looks like a nice day for a SB eruption for Betty
08:53:35 <Dave from B™> I hope it decides to go in daylight
08:53:45 <Dave from B™> Days are getting shorter
08:54:00 <Korben> So Graham, when are you heading into YNP? for the next one(not this one, but the one in early September)?
08:54:19 <GO BOXING DAY> i should be there Sat late afternoon
08:54:40 <GO BOXING DAY> so SB on Sunday 1 Sep would be nice
08:54:54 <Korben> Booooo, I am so Jealous:p, enjoy
08:55:13 <GO BOXING DAY> hopefully i get time to checkin and sleep on Saturday night
08:55:53 <Korben> doubtful, I know you are going to be out during that night, you will never sleep.
08:56:04 <Korben> maybe sitting at Bee, or Aurum
08:56:38 <Dave from B™> What will happen to whine and cheese party?
08:57:10 <Korben> picnic by R-Side, or Castle?
08:57:39 <Let it Be> Why are you whining?
08:58:20 <Korben> Korben, I think that would be odd
08:58:25 <Korben> oh.... I did it again
08:59:01 <Kat> Split Cone
08:59:20 <Korben> Well, I am off to class, bye everyone, be back on later
08:59:29 <Korben> to my next class**
09:01:10 <ynpvisitor26> pretty one!
09:03:16 <Kat> :)
09:18:52 <Kat> AL
09:28:28 <ynpvisitor71> I wonder where AJ gets his E times??
09:30:10 <ynpvisitor71> OH, I see now, must be a Ranger/ Volunteer
09:32:56 <ynpvisitor107> He’s a ranger
09:33:15 <ynpvisitor71> tks
09:34:25 <ynpvisitor107> I would guess most everyone is at SB today
09:35:36 <Kat> That's what I was thinking
09:36:02 <Dave from B™> They are all at SB waiting for Betty
09:36:18 <Kat> That's right Dave! :)
09:36:23 <ynpvisitor107> Not many gazers that know Betty are there now
09:36:36 <ynpvisitor107> They will know her soon
09:38:31 <ynpvisitor107> Craig will be at SB
09:45:28 <ynpvisitor37> Daisy
10:00:09 <Kat> Have a good afternoon Katie!
10:00:27 <Katie> Thanks. Not starting off well... Can't log in yet
10:05:20 <Kat> :(
10:18:57 <ynpvisitor63> Observers on E times?
10:19:00 <ynpvisitor37> A new vfor just a moment!!
10:19:11 <ynpvisitor37> view*
10:21:36 <ynpvisitor50> Rangers collecting E times, it is all we've got :(
10:23:07 <ynpvisitor63> Maybe it is radie day? Was finally posted about the order.
10:24:23 <ynpvisitor37> Not yet, it will be some time yet :(
10:46:47 <Eric> Morning
10:47:05 <Kevin L™> Hi stranger
10:47:11 <Katie> Hi Eric. Haven't seen you 'round here in a while.
10:47:29 <Eric> Hi Kevin & Katie
10:47:41 <Eric> I have been off and about doing summer stuff :-D
10:47:56 <Eric> Looks like the cam is still sucking :-(
10:48:29 <Kevin L™> No, sucking denotes movement.
10:48:35 <Eric> How have you guys been?
10:48:43 <Eric> I saw Betty on Friday!
10:48:48 <Eric> We have dinner and some drinks
10:49:06 <Eric> She should be sitting at steamboat right now
10:49:11 <Kevin L™> She told us shee was able to get with you.
10:49:27 <Eric> Fingers cross it goes for her today!
10:49:37 <Eric> One of the reasons I am checking in :-D
10:50:04 <Kat> Hey Eric!
10:50:08 <Eric> I see we finally have the steamboat logger back.
10:50:10 <Eric> Hi Kat
10:50:13 <Kevin L™> I hope she does.
10:50:47 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. It sounded like Betty will arrive shortly at Sb around 1-2 pm
10:51:12 <Eric> Hi Dave
10:51:15 <LindaG> Hey Eric nice to see you
10:51:16 <Dave from B™> Depending on the line
10:51:24 <Eric> ohhh, they must have slept in this morning :-P
10:51:42 <LindaG> Kevin L™, hi
10:51:51 <Kevin L™> Hi
10:52:06 <Dave from B™> Eric, I was 340 miles closer to you this weekend...took Rebecca to school
10:52:09 <Eric> Hi Linda
10:52:13 <ynpvisitor17> Kent is in the UGB! I guess he is not trying for SB
10:52:16 <Eric> haha
10:52:21 <LindaG> Has Betty seen steamboat before
10:52:32 <ynpvisitor17> No
10:52:38 <Dave from B™> not a tsart. I believe she has seen a steam phase
10:52:47 <ynpvisitor17> Yes
10:52:57 <Dave from B™> Remember when seeing a steam phase was a big deal?
10:53:04 <ynpvisitor17> No
10:53:21 <Kevin L™> Are the deer all safe now Dave?
10:53:28 <Eric> Yep, hopefully Betty & Thomas will get their first steamboat water today!
10:53:45 <Dave from B™> I made it home safe and sound. They are safe until Sunday
10:53:59 <ynpvisitor17> And Kent is maybe hoping for Aurum
10:54:22 <Eric> How long has the cam been down?
10:54:24 <LindaG> Well if he stands there long enough
10:54:41 <ynpvisitor17> Since you were last here Eric
10:54:52 <LindaG> Lol
10:55:03 <LindaG> It's just up and down all day li g
10:55:07 <ynpvisitor17> It’s true isn’t it??
10:55:11 <LindaG> *long
10:55:24 <Dave from B™> Eric, I'm not sure anyone here is actually looking at the camera anymore
10:55:33 <Eric> I haven't seen it up today yet :-P
10:55:41 <Kat> Hilarious Linda!
10:56:09 <Kat> It was earlier - but never stays for too long
10:56:11 <LindaG> I think it was up earlier but later in day more Interference
10:56:13 <Eric> Sad that they won't fix the camera :-(
10:56:22 <ynpvisitor17> I thought it was a Tornado cam now, Cooper is on here giving tornado play by play every day
10:56:59 <Katie> 56 minutes into my shift and I was just now able to log in.
10:57:11 <LindaG> Here we go, quick look
10:57:17 <Eric> I see spinning wheel now!
10:57:27 <LindaG> Refeeh
10:57:34 <LindaG> Or refresh
10:57:49 <Eric> ohh, there we go
10:57:55 <Eric> down basin steam!
10:58:02 <LindaG> Bulger
10:58:22 <Eric> yep, nice
10:58:26 <Dave from B™> Eric, it sounds as if you've been having fun hiking
10:59:01 <Eric> Yes, I also started sectional hiking the wildwood trail in Portland. It's the longest urban forested trail in the nation. 30 miles
10:59:21 <Eric> Knocked off 11 miles of it on Saturday
10:59:44 <Eric> Also hiked the skyline trail at Rainier on Friday
10:59:59 <Kat> Nice Eric - was it hot out>?
11:00:20 <Eric> No, we have had nice mild weather this last week.
11:00:22 <Dave from B™> Are you keeping a journal? How many miles have you hiked this year?
11:00:33 <Kat> Great!
11:00:33 <Eric> My watch tracks it all
11:00:44 <Eric> I climbed Mt. St. Helens last Saturday :-D
11:01:32 <Eric> That was about my 1 year anniversary of the start of my life changing exercise routines.
11:02:06 <LindaG> Happy anniversary
11:02:21 <ynpvisitor17> We missed Aurum
11:02:23 <Eric> Thanks :-D
11:02:47 <Eric> It went 3 minutes before cam restaretd
11:02:58 <Eric> Cynthia got it :-D
11:03:57 <Eric> Any F&M or Giant activity over the last couple weeks?
11:04:08 <Eric> Have we seen and hot periods or cycles posted?
11:04:13 <Katie> Nope
11:04:34 <Eric> Bummer :-(
11:08:42 <Dave from B™> Eric, just know that your routine motivated many of that we could also make life changing choices. I know CraigC has lost 30#, Mw wife and I have lost a total of 60#. We just need to get Parker out of here so we can get the final 15# off!
11:08:59 <Dave from B™> Too many carbs the past 6 weeks
11:09:54 <Eric> Awesome Dave...keep up the work! I love doing it...I am exploring so many places I have never seen before and living life much larger now.
11:10:27 <Dave from B™> That is why we bought our Class B which we get on Thursday or Friday. We are ready to explore
11:10:32 <Eric> Carbs are the killers...alcohol and bread
11:10:46 <Eric> Awesome....what length did you get?
11:10:55 <Dave from B™> 21'4"
11:11:06 <Eric> We have friends who just bought a Class B and theirs is arriving this week too I think :-P
11:11:08 <Dave from B™> It's small....think Genie in a tiny living space:)
11:11:33 <Eric> Yep...they are awesome and can fit in most regular camping spots.
11:11:48 <Eric> You get too big and you can't fit a lot of places.
11:12:20 <Dave from B™> We can even park it in acity
11:13:09 <Dave from B™> We're taking it out for a night on Sunday for a test run. Then 5-6 nights taking Parker to school in Mid Sept
11:13:49 <Let it Be> Where's he bound for?
11:14:06 <Eric> Very cool....congrats on your new home :-D
11:14:27 <Dave from B™> Bellingham WA for year 2
11:14:51 <Dave from B™> We took 6.5 weeks vacation this year. Our goal is 8-10 weeks in 2020
11:15:21 <Eric> Nice...well, if you want to tack on a couple days and head south let me know Dave :-D
11:18:03 <Dave from B™> We might be coming your way in 2020. I'll let you know.
11:18:30 <Dave from B™> We're exploring the north Cascade Highway on our return in Sept
11:20:26 <Cooper> I have like 5 minutes
11:20:29 <Cooper> Hey Everyone
11:20:40 <Cooper> Hi Eric, Dave
11:21:06 <Eric> Hi Cooper
11:21:20 <Cooper> So, how was dinner with Betty?
11:21:59 <Cooper> grr. missed Aurum
11:22:20 <Eric> Seeing Betty and Thomas is always great.
11:22:46 <Eric> I gave them a great American gift...tater tots :-P
11:23:27 <Cooper> haha
11:23:40 <Dave from B™> haha
11:23:42 <Cooper> yum.. Love tater tots, never let me down
11:24:03 <Cooper> I hope they get their first water SB today, or tommorow
11:24:04 <Dave from B™> Eric, when is your next planned trip to YNP? Mem 2020?
11:24:16 <Kat> Funny eric- did they enjoy?
11:24:57 <Eric> Yep, I have 2 weeks booked next year, memorial day and labor day. Will have to see if either/both stick
11:25:53 <Eric> Yes, they seemed to enjoy them. Hard to go wrong with oil and potatoes :-P
11:25:58 <Cooper> I hope Giant re-activates for all of us next summer.
11:26:29 <Eric> Yes, I would love to see some Giant, F&M activity soon.
11:27:23 <Dave from B™> Great, Eric
11:28:24 <Cooper> I would love to see Giant on webcam, I wonder what Mastiff would look like:)
11:29:42 <Kat> Amen Eric!
11:30:21 <Cooper> Well, I would have to go.
11:30:28 <Cooper> be back later
11:34:44 <Eric> Steamboat graph makes it look like we might have a day or two to wait
11:35:23 <ynpvisitor17> You can tell that from a graph?
11:37:51 <GO BOXING DAY> looks like 2 day based on the plot
11:38:23 <GO BOXING DAY> from 0600 this morning
11:38:41 <Eric> Well, Just looking at the temps before the last eruption...if it follows a similar pattern, then it needs to get a little warmer
11:38:59 <GO BOXING DAY> pure speculation tho since we havent had post-disturbance settle down yet
11:39:26 <Eric> Yes, I am just basing my statement on the last cycle and what limited graph we have
11:40:04 <GO BOXING DAY> was the weather warmer then too?
11:43:42 <Rice> Eric,
11:44:01 <Rice> I was thinking the same thing from the graph, tommorrow sometime
11:44:26 <Rice> Needs to be spiking to about 50C before it went.
11:45:56 <Eric> Yes and when it spikes, I don't believe the weather would have too much of an impact as water volume should counter the elements.
11:46:32 <Eric> But that is just hypothesis...not validated in any way
11:46:56 <Rice> Agree 100%
11:57:04 <Eric> grand!
11:57:05 <Eric> .
11:57:05 <Eric> .
11:57:06 <Eric> .
11:57:09 <Eric> still IE
11:57:18 <Eric> ohhh, and it's dead :-(
11:58:33 <Eric> Has there been any talk about a permanent solution before winter?
11:58:51 <Eric> and back
11:58:54 <Dave from B™> They've ordered a new radio
11:58:54 <Eric> second!
11:59:10 <Eric> woot...I am pretty sure that was a second.
11:59:18 <Eric> ohh, cool...thanks Dave
11:59:48 <Dave from B™> The camops may have a better idea when it is being installed
12:00:09 <Eric> This was my view from climbing up Mt. St. Helens last weekend:
12:00:12 <Katie> I expect we will receive notice on or before installation day
12:00:32 <Eric> OF
12:00:47 <Katie> I cut that fine. :)
12:01:03 <Kat> Good job Katie!
12:01:06 <Dave from B™> That's an amazing shot, Eric. Did it clear up at all on your hike
12:01:12 <Eric> From left to right...Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood and tiny on the horizon next to Hood, Jefferson
12:01:30 <Eric> They valley cleared up some by the end of the hike.
12:01:51 <Eric> But truthfully, it just created a beautiful white canvas for the mountains to sit on :-D
12:02:13 <Kat> Stunning!
12:02:28 <LindaG> Gorgeous shot
12:02:52 <Eric> was an awesome hike. Started at 4:30am hiking in the dark for 1.5 hours
12:03:00 <LindaG> Looks like the cam likes eric
12:03:13 <Eric> glad it's staying up for a bit
12:03:41 <Eric> I plan on climbing St. Helens again on 9/21 if the weather cooperates
12:05:17 <Eric> Daisy!
12:05:28 <Eric> We are getting all the geysers this morning
12:05:39 <Eric> How about a BH for a cherry on top :-D
12:05:39 <LindaG> Yay!
12:05:55 <Eric> ohhh, it went early today, never mind :-(
12:06:03 <Katie> Most surprising is that we get to see them. I was 56 minutes into my shift before I was able to log in for about a minute
12:06:51 <Kat> Thjat's really long Katie
12:07:09 <LindaG> It is unpredictable, but then I feel real lucky if I get to see something
12:07:13 <Kat> That's* I think I was in about 7 minutes or so
12:07:39 <Eric> vault and giantess look nice
12:07:59 <Eric> anemone
12:08:36 <LindaG> Eric, we had bronze spring erupt 3 times last week or week before
12:09:16 <ynpvisitor90> 3 burst Grand!
12:09:53 <Eric> wow...that might have been a 3rd I saw then :-P
12:10:02 <Eric> I heard Linda...that is pretty cool
12:10:06 <Dave from B™> Glad Cynthia caight it
12:10:33 <Eric> Yep, she got Aurum and then went and got a Grand...she is on it.
12:11:42 <Kat> :thumbsup:
12:21:11 <Eric> uhh, nobody logged that last daisy
12:25:04 <Casey> I missed a 3-burst grand? Sad.
12:25:46 <Eric> Hi Casey
12:25:59 <Casey> Hi Eric
12:26:02 <Eric> We all did...we got first and one of the followup bursts
12:26:11 <Eric> Cam was up and down
12:27:53 <Casey> Sad day. I haven't been on much lately. No progress with cam reliability?
12:28:32 <Eric> I haven't been either Casey...first day in weeks
12:28:43 <LindaG> They've ordered a new radio
12:28:45 <Eric> Apparently they are getting a new radio to try and fix the issue
12:28:45 <Casey> Welcome back
12:28:51 <Eric> Thanks.
12:28:55 <Casey> That's good news. Thanks Linda.
12:29:27 <LindaG> Hopefully it will get in before the snow flies
12:30:01 <Eric> Well, once the snow is here, I bet the radio interference goes away :-P
12:30:26 <Eric> I assume once the backcountry office is closed, the webcam will work fine
12:30:33 <Eric> and the Inn is closed
12:30:38 <LindaG> Eric, one of the best things you ever did was set up that webcam up, webcam down indicator
12:30:50 <LindaG> Eric, good point
12:31:19 <Eric> Thanks Linda :-D
12:31:35 <GO BOXING DAY> you are responsible fr it failing and going down tho
12:31:42 <LindaG> Makes it easier on camops to know what's happening, at least for me anyway
12:32:03 <Eric> But also for it coming back up :-D
12:32:13 <Eric> Glad it's helpful
12:33:16 <GO BOXING DAY> but mainly for it going down
12:33:48 <Eric> Haven't they blocked canada yet from the webcam...I put in a request for that.
12:34:10 <GO BOXING DAY> they are building a wal for that
12:34:24 <Eric> Now that is something I can support!
12:34:30 <GO BOXING DAY> not in Canada anyway .. or from Canada
12:34:42 <GO BOXING DAY> but i have visited
12:34:53 <Katie> Is that the wall Mexico is paying for?
12:35:12 <Eric> They keep the canadians at bay!
12:35:24 <GO BOXING DAY> i am sure you saw the meme .. US Buying Greenland and Mexico is paying for it
12:35:46 <Eric>, I haven't really followed much social media latestly either.
12:35:57 <Eric> But that is hilarious :-P
12:36:31 <Eric> Anyone have links to thermal features in Ethiopia?
12:40:15 <ynpvisitor77> 3 burst Grand and hk is watching rocks!!
12:41:37 <Dave from B™> That is what SB does to you!!
12:41:40 <Eric> Dallol Ethiopia, one of the hottest places on earth and home to salt geysers!
12:57:30 <Cooper> WOW
12:57:33 <Cooper> G3Q!!!!
12:59:29 <Dave from B™> We saw parts of 2 bursts
12:59:54 <Eric> Giantess now please
12:59:56 <Cooper> better than none
13:07:19 <Cooper> not good news, Dorian is strengthening, and is likely to hit Florida as a tropical storm
13:09:34 <Cooper> and, it may even be Cat 1 still by then:(:(:(
13:14:03 <Cooper> Well, I have to go, bbl

14:15:10 <Kevin L™> Daisy

14:26:14 <Dave from B™> Jimbo, I presume. Which B element are you? I don't remember the number you entered with.
14:30:47 <Let it Be> 4 - Beryllium. That makes me interesting, not Boron.
14:30:48 <ynpvisitor5> its time
14:32:29 <ynpvisitor90> 6 days 1 hour
14:32:36 <LindaG> Let it Be, lol
14:32:53 <Let it Be> :thumbsup:
14:32:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe tonight or tomrrow .. but I feel we are close
14:33:01 <Dave from B™> haha Jimbo
14:33:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> Betty should be there by now
14:33:26 <LindaG> Bulger again
14:40:24 <Dave from B™> I hope Betty gets a daylight one
14:40:29 <ynpvisitor37> Why is no one entering geysers??
14:40:55 <Katie> Well, now you can enter Lion. ;)
14:41:09 <ynpvisitor37> I did
14:41:47 <ynpvisitor37> :)
14:42:58 <Eric> Hi Joe and Graham
14:43:15 <ynpvisitor37> Hi Eric
14:43:29 <ynpvisitor37> Long time?
14:43:53 <Eric> I was waiting for the webcam to work again :-P
14:44:14 <Katie> It's been pretty decent this afternoon!
14:44:33 <Eric> Your welcome :-P
14:45:08 <ynpvisitor37> I can't believe how well it has been doing
14:45:25 <ynpvisitor37> Eric, Stay!!
14:45:53 <ynpvisitor37> LC
14:46:57 <Eric> Happy National Dog Day!
14:47:35 <ynpvisitor37> OOPS sorry Eric, sounds too much like a dog command, s/b Eric please stay :)
14:48:07 <Eric> Here is my puppy in celebration:
14:49:12 <ynpvisitor37> Nice, is this Nora?
14:49:17 <Dave from B™> hahahaha 37
14:49:36 <Eric> Yep...that is Nora, our mini shepard
14:49:49 <ynpvisitor37> very nice
14:49:53 <Dave from B™> That's the wrong field to hide in for your dog:)
14:49:55 <Eric> thanks
14:50:16 <Eric> That is Balsam Root for anybody who might not be familiar with the flower
14:50:59 <Dave from B™> In Yellwstone it is Arrowleaf Balsam Root. Is this one and the same?
14:53:25 <Eric> Not positive Dave...there are many varieties of balsamroot
14:53:29 <Dave from B™> It looks the same
14:54:55 <Dave from B™> Huge arrow shaped leaves
14:55:01 <Eric>
14:55:13 <Dave from B™> This plant is all over northern YNP.
14:55:24 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric
14:56:13 <Eric> apparently the columbia river gorge has many varieties of balsamroot, including some arrowhead. I believe most of them have arrow shaped leaves
14:56:55 <Eric> Thank you...I had no idea there were that many different types of balsamroot :-D
14:59:06 <Dave from B™> We need to hike in the Northern part of the park next year, Eric.
14:59:40 <Eric> I agree, I missed an opportunity to hike there with MA :-(
15:00:06 <Dave from B™> Yep...we might need an expert guide so we don't get lost:D
15:02:19 <Eric> I would really like to head up to some of those ridgelines in hellroaring
15:03:00 <Eric> But I also wouldn't mind doing 2 or 3 days in the SW corner of the park either
15:03:07 <Eric> lodging is cheap :-D
15:03:24 <Dave from B™> Bechler is fun but that would be Sept when river levels are low
15:03:57 <Dave from B™> I would do Bechler again. A lot of walking for 2-3 days
15:04:21 <Eric> Yep....what do you have planned next september? :-D
15:04:34 <Eric> Dude on Mt. Washburn cam
15:04:53 <Eric> OF
15:06:17 <Dave from B™> Just taking Parker back to school at the end of the month so it looks open
15:06:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dave will be at SB next fall
15:07:08 <Dave from B™> I might be at SB Sunday or monday if it goes soon
15:07:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> waiting for his 10th SB
15:07:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> no, thats Craig will be at 10 by then
15:07:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> see you there
15:07:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> will Betty, Craig, Dave and I be banned from the platform?
15:08:02 <Dave from B™> Yeah. I loved it but I'm not going to invest 80 hours per eruption for 10 eruptions
15:08:28 <Eric> Yep...I agree Dave
15:08:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> 80h for 10 isnt bad
15:08:35 <Dave from B™> Did we commit a Speculation Violation?
15:08:38 <Eric> I would wait at F&M that long though :-D
15:09:04 <Dave from B™> Too much of the world to see
15:09:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am working on my list of theories to share with everyone
15:09:15 <Eric> I want a sunny day F&M, next September might be a good time to do it
15:09:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> it took me years to see an eruption with nice weather and wind direction
15:09:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> and daylight
15:09:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> all at the same time
15:10:20 <Eric> Giantess and F&M are on my hot list.
15:10:53 <Eric> But I am not in a rush, patience is a gazers best friend.
15:11:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> The Giantess with Jake will be hard to beat ... with bonus F&M before midnight
15:12:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> and we had Plume and Sawmill back in those days
15:12:57 <Dave from B™> C'mon, Graham, what about our in the dark Trifecta?
15:13:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was cool too :) 3h16m of Ftn
15:13:52 <Dave from B™> Yep. A great memory
15:13:52 <Eric> haha....the story I tell is from walking past your cabin at 2am and not seeing your car that night Dave :-P
15:14:11 <Eric> Damn bad choices! :-(
15:14:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> so I have had Giantess + F&M, and Steamboat + Giant in same day. next I need Morning and one of the other biggies
15:14:17 <Dave from B™> haha. You thought a bear got me?:D
15:14:34 <Dave from B™> Yep...gazing is littered with bad choices. I've been there many many times
15:14:46 <Eric> No...I knew you guys had morning and I made a bad choice
15:15:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe next year :)
15:15:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> i will bring my flashlights
15:15:24 <Eric> I never would have guessed you got a trifecta :-D
15:15:32 <Dave from B™> You chose sleep hoping it would go the next go around....and that's what we were thinking as well but we needed a DATA POINT. Oops....there are those words again:)
15:16:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> we speculated
15:16:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> and theorized
15:16:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> without proof.
15:17:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> as i said in my Sput article, we joked about wanting a solo or dual because trifecta would take too long
15:18:45 <Dave from B™> Yep. I didn't come prepared for that long of a sit but I "muscled thru it":)
15:19:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> missed out on the MT/M dual that happened next
15:19:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> the chair helped
15:19:36 <Dave from B™> That was a shocker
15:19:42 <Dave from B™> Yes, the chair was a lifesaver
15:20:16 <Dave from B™> I haven't received my sput yet. I better look at the E version tonight.
15:20:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats all i have too
15:20:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> may do a night SB watch with Craig this trip
15:22:23 <Dave from B™> I might see you Sunday. We might do an overnight van test run with a Sunday night stay somewhere. It was going to be red Lodge but we could boondock near West just as easily
15:33:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> or at Gardiner. bring a BIG cover
15:40:02 <Dave from B™> I'll be a mile down the Canyon road:D
15:40:54 <Eric> Do you want a campsite for Sunday Dave, I can spin up canyon or madison request for you
15:41:20 <Eric> or just get there early sunday morning and you could probably get one at norris I bet
15:41:26 <Lori S> Hello All Hello. Busy in here today. :)
15:41:34 <Dave from B™> on Labor Day weekend?
15:42:32 <Eric> It's the sunday of labor day weekend...i bet a lot of people take off to travel home that morning
15:42:32 <Dave from B™> Eric, sure, why not? I would take Canyon or Mammoth
15:42:47 <Eric> what about madison?
15:43:09 <Dave from B™> oops, I meant Madison
15:43:19 <Dave from B™> no one Mammoth
15:43:24 <Dave from B™> no on Mammoth
15:43:36 <ynpvisitor90> Mammoth doesn't do reservations anyway
15:44:13 <Dave from B™> I will NEVER camp in sagebrush
15:44:26 <Dave from B™> maybe if it's slough creek
15:44:49 <Lori S> Rattlesnakes?
15:45:07 <ynpvisitor90> why?
15:45:23 <Dave from B™> I need the smell of pine
15:45:47 <Dave from B™> Never might have been too definitive of a word
15:46:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> dont they have wolves and bears there?
15:46:19 <Lori S> Smell of Juniper at Mammoth
15:48:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> whats the cost of shipping your RV to NZ Dave?
15:48:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC
15:50:08 <Dave from B™> GS, a lot of money. You can rent them in NZ but its not cheap
15:50:34 <Dave from B™> Should I be embarrassed Iwe had already thought of that?
15:53:23 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:54:04 <Kevin L™> Night Dave
15:54:10 <Eric> Night Dave...your search is in
15:54:53 <Eric> woops, included the 2nd too
15:54:57 <Dave from B™> Thanks! Headed home to do dome planning.
15:55:16 <Dave from B™> 1 night only. :( Leave for LV on Wed
15:55:24 <Dave from B™> some*
15:55:26 <Eric> I fixed it
15:55:31 <Dave from B™> Thanks again
15:55:35 <Eric> it will only contact you if it finds a spot for 9/1
15:55:45 <Eric> Which I assume it will :-D
15:55:45 <Dave from B™> Great.Go Lion
15:57:25 <Eric> Good crowd for lion too
16:10:51 <Eric> Wow...gone into yoyo mode while I was away
16:14:28 <Korben / Cooper> Hey Everyone
16:14:49 <Lori S> Hello Mr Cooper
16:15:00 <Eric> Hey Lori
16:15:09 <Korben / Cooper> Dangit, I missed Lion, and Aurum.
16:15:11 <Korben / Cooper> Hey Lori
16:15:36 <Lori S> Hi Eric
16:15:54 <Lori S> Wait, Eric is here. :)
16:16:00 <Eric> Cynthia got 2 Aurums today!
16:16:15 <Eric> haha....I do show up every once in a while
16:16:40 <Lori S> I said Hi earlier but you all were in a deep convo about Dave camping
16:18:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> with both Dave and Craig on the road LD weekend ... watch out everyone
16:18:48 <Lori S> Mailboxes and deer beware!
16:20:03 <Lori S> So many folks at SB that I should seriously think about calling in sick tomorrow if it hasn't gone.
16:20:13 <Lori S> :p
16:20:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> why do you think I drove when dave and I saw the trifecta?
16:22:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> hopefully we get another status update today ... lack of reports is a good sign for progress tho
16:23:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah missed Aurum :(
16:24:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess Cynthia and Bob had a UGB day
16:24:14 <Lori S> Yup. I really thought today looked good but not much of today left
16:24:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> yesterday it sounded like it was getting better but still not that good
16:24:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> it might be good right now tho
16:25:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks for the reports too :)
16:25:51 <Lori S> YVM. Honestly, the water coming down the hill Sunday morning gave me pause.
16:26:03 <Lori S> haha YVW
16:26:28 <Eric> ohh, sorry I missed your earlier hello Lori :-D
16:26:42 <Lori S> It didn't match up with the pitiful low, angled splashing
16:26:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bill noted Micah 3 and 4's a couple of times .. so thats not really strong. of course it could have been in alull
16:26:57 <Lori S> Eric, Hello
16:27:01 <Eric> Glad we have logger data back!
16:27:23 <Eric> You can tell that runoff picked up via the graph
16:27:31 <Eric> But still not potent enough.
16:27:38 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, Cistern had dropped at somepoint after Sat noght's report so a pause it had entered, I think.
16:27:43 <Eric> hopefully the logger keeps working and we will see more data from today.
16:29:00 <Lori S> Whoa, SB logger is vack. Look at that.
16:29:05 <Lori S> back
16:29:24 <ynpvisitor90> more than a week and it's still up. :)
16:29:52 <Eric> Doing better than the cam!
16:31:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> does it only update once a day?
16:31:35 <Korben / Cooper> ha, I just noticed the data was working again:p
16:31:36 <Korben / Cooper> Hi Linda
16:31:40 <LindaG> Hello everyone hello

16:32:41 <LindaG> Korben / Cooper, hi
16:32:55 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
16:33:36 <Lori S> ynpvisitor90, it's been up a week? I stopped looking a long time ago. lol
16:33:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have gotten to the evening and no notes on GT today
16:34:30 <Eric> Lot's of high expectations apparently Graham :-P
16:34:41 <Eric> or lots
16:34:45 <ynpvisitor90> yeah YVO fixed it on the 16th
16:35:05 <Lori S> ynpvisitor90, I'm usually the last to know. :)
16:35:12 <ynpvisitor58> Everyone is there, they aren’t going to leave to send Graham an update...
16:35:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
16:35:41 <LindaG> What's the tantlus water gauge doing, why the spike?
16:35:54 <ynpvisitor58> They know we see the seismo
16:36:17 <Eric> daytime temps Linda
16:36:35 <LindaG> Ah, thx
16:37:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger?
16:37:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> hard to pick a time for it tho
16:41:37 <Lori S> sprinkler
16:41:38 <Eric> bulger
16:41:44 <Eric> ie
16:42:10 <Eric> Operator error?
16:44:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> got in just in time :)
16:44:52 <Korben / Cooper> please do not put me in a timeout:p
16:44:57 <Korben / Cooper> it sounds vicious
16:45:53 <Eric> tardy
16:46:05 <Eric> Nice big one
16:46:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> it actually made it to Up this time
16:47:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> for 44s
16:47:07 <Eric> Sorry...Old Tardy
16:47:15 <Eric> I assume
16:47:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh yeah, nice catch
16:48:21 <Eric> So there is some relationship with old tardy and bulgers hole...right?
16:48:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> not that i know of
16:48:58 <Eric> hmmm, I thought I remember someone talking about that.
16:49:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think Eric is lying, cam does not look Up
16:49:19 <Eric> working here
16:49:33 <Eric> Maybe it's you graham :-P
16:49:47 <Eric> Failing :-(
16:58:03 <Lori S> Giving up on the cam for today. Good luck with Grand
16:58:14 <Korben / Cooper> C'Mon Grand, Daisy, and Castle
16:58:15 <Lori S> ...of course
16:58:18 <Korben / Cooper> Bye Lori
16:58:32 <Korben / Cooper> thanks for being the sacrifice.
16:58:46 <Lori S> YVW :) Go Steamboat
16:58:58 <Korben / Cooper> of course now the cam will work perfectly:p
16:59:01 <Korben / Cooper> or not
17:02:18 <Korben / Cooper> I wonder if this cam is ever going to get better:(
17:03:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> one park joke i hadnt heard on my tours. How did the grizzly walk through the park?
17:05:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> bear footed
17:05:26 <Korben / Cooper> haha
17:05:39 <Korben / Cooper> oh.. now I get it:p ROFL
17:06:25 <ynpvisitor85> Really bad! Honest.
17:06:46 <Korben / Cooper> That is the point, it is one of those jokes that is so bad, it is hilarious
17:07:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> you hear a lot of them if you do the winter snowcoach tours
17:07:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> fortunately i have forgotten most
17:08:03 <Korben / Cooper> :lol:
17:12:24 <ynpvisitor85> Park spectacular. Full, but not terribly so. Low 70s right now. Tours not behaving but I am happy and haven't used my bear spear once :)
17:12:39 <ynpvisitor85> Kent
17:12:58 <Cooper> Hi Kent
17:13:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice
17:13:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> glad you enjoyed it
17:13:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> whats next?
17:14:00 <ynpvisitor85> Grand now then Norris for SB steam phase tomorrow (at Snow Lodge now)
17:14:26 <Cooper> nice
17:15:45 <ynpvisitor85> If you are staying at the Inn you can get a code to use the really poor Internet at the SL
17:16:39 <ynpvisitor85> Room at the Inn no bath one bed $187. Too much!
17:16:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> enjoy Grand, maybe a 4b this time :)
17:16:54 <Cooper> WOW!!
17:17:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> one can hope SB waits for you to arrive tomorrow
17:17:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> they have gone up a lot

17:24:36 <GabeL> ooh, when is it erupting do you think?
17:24:40 <Eric> I kind of doubt it too...probably missed daisy about an hour ago
17:25:08 <Cooper> well Gabe, it could erupt now, or any time in the next few hours
17:25:08 <GabeL> and yes i am new here

17:51:19 <GabeL> oh
17:51:46 <Michael> The first "burst" lasts 8-11 minutes. These days it's often the only burst.

17:54:44 <Cooper> ?
17:54:51 <Cooper> just to the left of Grand?
17:54:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> cant tell where you mean
17:55:37 <Cooper> if it is just to the left-back of Grand then that is Oblong, and it is not erupting, just steaming
