06:15:31 <Cooper> YAY
06:15:33 <Cooper> YAY
06:15:34 <Cooper> YAY
06:15:36 <Cooper> !
06:15:36 <Cooper> !
06:15:37 <Cooper> !
06:24:32 <ynpvisitor81> I have forgotten how to do this page
06:25:01 <Cooper> What do ya mean>
06:26:23 <ynpvisitor62> You will figure it out Craig :)
06:26:41 <Cooper> oh,,, Hi Craig, are you home>
06:27:16 <ynpvisitor81> Joe, how did you know it was me, because I am forgetful?
06:27:35 <ynpvisitor81> I am away from home until I can get back
06:27:43 <ynpvisitor62> timing :)
06:27:50 <ynpvisitor81> haha
06:27:52 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
06:27:56 <ynpvisitor81> how you been
06:28:11 <Cooper> Me, or Joe?
06:28:32 <ynpvisitor62> Great, i don't need to ask about you :)
06:29:11 <ynpvisitor81> can I go on and on and on about it anyways? naaa, I wont :)
06:29:31 <ynpvisitor81> GT told the tale, mostly
06:29:34 <ynpvisitor62> please do :)
06:30:11 <ynpvisitor62> yes I was watching, very envious :)
06:30:45 <ynpvisitor81> trying to catch up to all you guys that have been doing it already for years before me
06:31:20 <ynpvisitor81> this trip was a lot about learning LGB
06:31:29 <ynpvisitor14> ynpvisitor81, question - on the 0234 eruption could you see if south vent was super big?
06:31:43 <ynpvisitor62> just start pointing, you will be there :)
06:32:40 <ynpvisitor81> ynpvisitor14, not me, I saw the start from the parking lot, when I got to the platform it was raining steamboat all over us, then at steerage, well..... I can't remember
06:33:14 <Cooper> :p The Great Forgetful Craig.
06:33:17 <ynpvisitor81> I shot footage from steerage, while Graham and another dude had bright lights on it from the platform
06:33:18 <ynpvisitor14> haha, thanks
06:34:20 <ynpvisitor81> this last sit, vents were out of sync on most of the large minors
06:34:36 <Cooper> Time for me to head to XC Practice... bbl... have a safe trip home Craig
06:35:52 <ynpvisitor81> we had a HUGE minor before noon on Monday that looked great, then weird stuff after that for the next two days
06:46:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah another one for William .. he does catch a lot. looks like he was there all day too
06:46:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> must be on hs 3 day weekend
06:47:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> snow person is back at Washburn
06:47:58 <ynpvisitor62> Grand
06:48:03 <CraigC> yeah, he was on his 3 day
06:52:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> Just over a month and a half to closing ... better get back there Craig
06:53:13 <CraigC> probably will, at least one more time
06:54:46 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
06:55:34 <CraigC> hey Dave
06:55:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder if SB was moonlit?
06:56:26 <Dave from B™> It's time for another round of SB stats
06:56:42 <Dave from B™> 35 eruptions in 2019; 3 ahead of last year
06:56:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> mean and median went up for this series tho
06:57:26 <Dave from B™> Last 100 Median is unchanged at 8d8h19m
06:57:43 <CraigC> my guess is it will settle back to between 6 to 7 days
06:58:12 <Dave from B™> Last 100 Mean dropped 1h36m to 134d12h20m
06:59:13 <CraigC> wow, 7 already, Joe, want me to take it
07:00:31 <ynpvisitor62> yes
07:00:58 <CraigC> control page not loading
07:01:11 <ynpvisitor62> Very hard to get control, have to be quick
07:02:48 <CraigC2> I cant even get to the page
07:02:58 <ynpvisitor62> the camera has been down more than up, when it is up it is usually only for a few seconds
07:03:53 <ynpvisitor62> last time up was 0648
07:05:10 <ynpvisitor62> it does give us a static picture once in a while
07:05:42 <Dave from B™> The hypothesis that slower Sept would result in better streaming doesn't seem to be the case
07:08:06 <CraigC> the SB temp graph shows that after the big minor, it didn't continue building in heat, it slumped down and then started climbing back
07:08:25 <CraigC> riverside?
07:08:32 <ynpvisitor62> I think the current radioyes
07:08:51 <ynpvisitor62> yes on rside
07:09:14 <CraigC>
07:09:22 <ynpvisitor14> think I read that August was higher visitation than August 2018
07:10:13 <Dave from B™> Yes, August was less than 1% ahead of last August
07:10:29 <Dave from B™> I believe YTD visitation is down less than 1% from last year
07:11:03 <ynpvisitor14> so hope that Sept is less (much less)
07:11:31 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but Delaware North has been slowly buying up properties in West and Gardiner
07:11:33 <ynpvisitor62> I think the current radio was out of warranty before it was put in service, and he way the radio shop is working on the new one it may be out of warranty also by the time it is installed
07:11:56 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I had heard that
07:12:56 <CraigC> Dave from B™, also, two of the eating establishments that we visited in west have changed ownerships, and now there is some language barriers in taking orders
07:15:19 <Dave from B™> That's always fun
07:16:25 <ynpvisitor14> have to learn Mandarin to place your order?
07:16:29 <ynpvisitor62> try to log in now
07:16:43 <ynpvisitor62> chance is gone
07:17:22 <CraigC> I got logged in now, but every time it fails, it takes longer to re-enter the controls than it is back up
07:17:58 <Dave from B™> CraigC, this cam will chase you back to YNP VERY SOON:)
07:18:21 <ynpvisitor62> yes, you have to be lucky to get a move
07:18:38 <CraigC> what's the point of even having cam drivers, might as well just set it on OF until they fix it
07:20:43 <ynpvisitor62> yes you are right, the only way I get geysers anymore is to put it on night view then check my recording for when it is up, most of my catches are ie
07:20:54 <Dave from B™> CraigC, that is my thought exactly
07:21:51 <ynpvisitor62> if it was not for my recording my catches would be nil
07:23:38 <ynpvisitor62> you got quite a few moves there Craig :)
07:23:49 <CraigC> lucky
07:30:34 <CraigC> nanosecond of movement
07:32:10 <ynpvisitor62> when you come on in the mornings just take the cam when you can, don't wate for me...
07:32:49 <ynpvisitor62> I may be having a senior moment or something :)
07:33:17 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:37:56 <Rice> I would like to be on Geyser Hill right now. Sigh
07:39:48 <CraigC> no one logged Fountain last night after a 38m interval, that is where I would have been
07:40:39 <ynpvisitor14> duration, you mean
07:40:50 <CraigC> ooops
07:41:33 <CraigC> AB
07:43:48 <CraigC> BenH is there
07:50:32 <CraigC> AB
07:50:58 <CraigC> does anyone want it down basin before OF?
07:51:26 <CraigC> wherever it goes, it stays for a while
07:55:16 <CraigC> ot
07:55:52 <CraigC> if anyone likes to enter, Old Tardy started at 755
08:05:17 <CraigC> AL
08:16:47 <ynpvisitor14> ranger angela should just enter the OF and it would become primary
08:21:10 <CraigC> it wont become primary because the other one has the earlier entry time
08:22:10 <CraigC> OF
08:23:33 <ynpvisitor14> thought it was 2 minutes earlier
08:24:03 <CraigC> not the eruption time, the time it was entered into gt
08:25:25 <CraigC> I learned that when I tried to alter a SB entry so that another person's could be primary that had more useful info
08:25:55 <Cooper> Might be another little bit of a TS, TD, or Possibly even Hurricane to slam into Florida later the week
08:25:57 <CraigC> I had to delete mine, then re-enter
08:26:18 <Katie (in&out)> G'morning
08:26:34 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:26:42 <Cooper> morning Katie
08:29:11 <Cooper> Hi to you to cam.. glad you are still behaving like normal
08:31:08 <Katie (in&out)> Sure... as soon as I log in. Cam link has it in for me this week.
08:31:21 <ynpvisitor14> I see why, she had wc on hers so B2's will remain primary
08:31:24 <Cooper> haha... it must like you
08:31:27 <CraigC> it took me a while for cam page to load
08:33:03 <Cooper> 14, I see the 0650 as Primary?
08:33:30 <CraigC> it just got deleted
08:33:52 <Cooper> oh
08:33:54 <Cooper> thx
08:34:59 <CraigC> Katie, do you have the cam?
08:35:12 <ynpvisitor14> she must have a better WC then we do :P :P
08:35:20 <Katie (in&out)> yes, Craig.
08:35:30 <CraigC> cool, I can shut mine down
08:35:57 <CraigC> got things to do
08:37:37 <UCBerkelium> Wow, a live streaming image.
08:38:56 <Cooper> Hi Jimbo?
08:42:16 <Cooper> Hi BWaggs
08:43:15 <UCBerkelium> Hi Cooper
08:47:27 <UCBerkelium> Grotto looking big
08:50:11 <Cooper> Ugg. they just announced that my Saturday XC meet is now at 7:30:(:(:(
08:50:22 <Katie (in&out)> And just keeps getting bigger (Grotto plume)
08:50:36 <Katie (in&out)> Or is that Arty?
08:51:05 <Cooper> TO Much Moving Steam:p
08:51:06 <UCBerkelium> Be glad you don't play hockey Cooper
08:51:15 <Cooper> haha, why is that?
08:51:38 <UCBerkelium> Games, and especially tournaments, can start earlier than that.
08:51:48 <UCBerkelium> Ice time considerations
08:51:59 <Cooper> OK... I will never play hockey
08:52:10 <Cooper> Thanks, I never knew that.
08:53:02 <Katie (in&out)> It does look like both Grotto & Arty to me, but not with enough confidence to enter it
08:53:23 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
08:53:37 <Katie (in&out)> 8:00 note on Arty makes it seem quite plausible, though...
08:54:00 <Cooper> it is very plausible
08:59:49 <Cooper> :daisy:
09:00:19 <Katie (in&out)> Daisy
09:08:05 <Cooper> Ok... time for me to go now
09:08:08 <Cooper> be back later
09:14:56 <Rice> Is Radiator a Spring?
09:15:05 <Rice> Sorry bad Pun
09:16:34 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Radiator Springs is a ride at Disney, Rice:)
09:17:35 <Rice> Ok, Someone got it, Thanks Dave.
09:20:08 <Teri> omg, the cam is working!
09:20:17 <Teri> gm all!
09:20:52 <Teri> glad to see SB went last night; I leave for the Park next Wed, arr Fri; first stop Norris, we'll see
09:23:37 <Dave from B™> Yep. I thought that was what you wree referring to:)
09:23:53 <Dave from B™> Good luck at prison, Teri :)
09:25:34 <Teri> np; like fishing, you wait and sometimes you catch something and many times you don't; but you're in the Park!!; what better place to be waiting for something
09:25:44 <Dave from B™> I hope your stint is a short one
09:26:07 <Dave from B™> Try sitting there for 28 hours in 2 days and see if you feel the same way:)
09:26:55 <Teri> if SB stays on a 6-7 day interval, I'll probably miss it; if it shortens or lengthens, I might have a chance; only there for 3-1/2 days
09:27:26 <Teri> I'll have rain gear and layers, lol
09:27:34 <Dave from B™> If it hasn't gone by the time you get there, you will be sitting pretty. GET UP early on Friday!!!
09:27:43 <Teri> all worth it when you catch an eruption
09:28:31 <Teri> driving in from Caldwell ID Friday, so not in the park until mid-afternoon; will leave ID early
09:29:25 <ynpvisitor81> Mindfulness Dave, mindfulness - Om..... Om..... Om.....
09:31:52 <Dave from B™> If it was me, I'b be leaving Caldwell at 4 am but I'm CRAZY
09:36:04 <Teri> I'll aim for 6am, lol; visiting the in-laws on route; Richland, WA; Caldwell, ID - handy stops; I do the return trip Caldwell/home, non-stop
09:38:03 <Dave from B™> Teri ,when was the last time you made it to YNP?
09:59:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Time for cam control roulette. :p
10:02:06 <Teri> Dave - last year about this time; was there the night before and morning after of the 9/24/18, 0518 SB
10:02:24 <UCBerkelium> Cam was doing so well
10:04:43 <Teri> caught the 9/26/18 solo Morning on the way out; that was amazing, met Kitt, Steve, Ulli and family
10:05:02 <Dave from B™> Morning is lots of fun
10:06:11 <Teri> missed Great Fountain the last few trips; will make a few stops LGB and Fountain; will ck out the reopened Uncle Tom's trail if I have no chance for SB
10:06:48 <Teri> hope to do the Mystic Falls trail this trip; Fairy/Imperial was excellent (last year)
10:07:22 <Teri> interested in Monument too; I guess the current trail is distant from the Sentinel Meadows features?
10:10:51 <ynpvisitor79> 1010 ie wc on Fluff
10:12:22 <Cooper> Was that # 67?
10:13:06 <Dave from B™> Yes, it was
10:13:32 <Cooper> Hi Dave
10:13:38 <Cooper> Thanks... I have lost count
10:14:36 <ynpvisitor79> OF time looks way off. I will delete
10:15:01 <Cooper> Hi Kent
10:15:24 <ynpvisitor79> Hey Coop
10:24:38 <ynpvisitor14> Monument is in Gibbon Canyon area Teri, not close to Sentinel Meadows
10:24:41 <Cooper> how is your day going Kent?
10:26:06 <Dave from B™> Thanks 14, I meant to say something to Teri about that
10:31:45 <Cooper> indy
10:31:46 <Cooper> .
10:31:46 <Cooper> .
10:31:46 <Kevin L™🌵> BHI
10:31:46 <Cooper> .
10:31:49 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:31:59 <Cooper> nice
10:32:02 <Cooper> Hi GMK
10:32:37 <Cooper> BHI 1025
10:33:41 <Eric> Thanks for the txt
10:33:42 <Cooper> Hi Eric
10:33:45 <Eric> and good morning
10:33:52 <ynpvisitor68> back to see/what I can see of BH. Thanks for text
10:35:13 <Teri> Dave, 14: yes, I know; 2 different hikes; anyone been to Sentinel lately? I think the trail may be far from the features now
10:35:59 <Eric> I hiked out to sentinal from fairy falls in the spring
10:36:05 <Teri> would like to do Shoshone, but won't have the time or the knees this trip
10:36:09 <Cooper> Eric... was it chance that you got on here for Bee?
10:36:47 <ynpvisitor48> At last the SB folks will see a geyser erupt
10:37:18 <Teri> Eric - can you view the thermal features at Sentinel? I did Fairy Falls/Imperial last year on William's recommendation. That's a great 1/2 day hike.
10:37:20 <Kevin L™🌵> FYI Teri the first part of Monument is easy but the 2nd part is a very steep climb. May not be knee friendly.
10:37:41 <Teri> yes, but short, lol
10:38:09 <Teri> I bought trekking poles for this year, lol; knees aren't going to get better, so I figure I better try while I can
10:38:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate to that!
10:38:43 <Eric> ohh, sorry...I did imperial and then hiked over near sentinal, but didn't go out there due to it being spring and swamped out :-(
10:39:52 <Teri> looking good for BH!; will try again this trip, caught 3 from afar; sat for 5 hours on the bw, but didn't catch one at the cone
10:40:24 <Teri> Eric - I don't think there are any trails close anymore (?)
10:41:04 <Eric> It was hard enough getting through the swamp of the fairy falls trail over to the fountain flat road!
10:41:40 <Eric> doesn't the imperial meadows trail take you pretty close?
10:41:57 <ynpvisitor48> Spring is very different conditions
10:42:03 <Eric> BH
10:42:05 <Cooper> Bee
10:42:05 <Cooper> .
10:42:06 <Cooper> ..
10:42:06 <Cooper> ..
10:42:06 <Cooper> .
10:42:07 <Teri> yes, I can only imagine in the spring; was still muddy in places late Sept; runoff from Midway area (?); don't know about Imperial meadows
10:42:21 <Eric> ugggg
10:42:42 <ynpvisitor48> BH
10:42:46 <Teri> can't get a BH w/out the cam freezing
10:42:53 <Eric> I love the view from up above imperial geyser, one of my favorite photos from the park in the spring
10:43:31 <ynpvisitor79> The way the cam has been behaving we were lucky to get any of :bee:
10:43:33 <Teri> I didn't try to do the hillside spur, lol; no poles then; figured I could get up, but then you have to come down
10:44:04 <Eric>
10:44:12 <Teri> long ways to scoot down on one's posterior, lol
10:44:23 <Eric> haha
10:44:25 <ynpvisitor44> Wow, a geyser.
10:44:29 <ynpvisitor48> We missed the crowd having to move
10:44:54 <Cooper> and now I have to go to my next class
10:44:54 <Eric> snowman getting a suntan up on washburn :-P
10:44:56 <Cooper> Thank you Bee
10:45:23 <Teri> tks Eric!; great shot, saved it
10:45:33 <Eric> :thumbsup:
10:45:43 <Eric> bee is back
10:45:59 <ynpvisitor79> A view you see often
10:46:01 <Teri> nice B!
10:47:22 <Teri> off to Lowes; needing to get some interior rehab finished before YNP!; will ck in later; have a great day all
10:47:28 <ynpvisitor48> So nice to see blue skies again
10:54:03 <Guess who I am> I just left a bit ago
10:54:06 <Guess who I am> haha
10:54:11 <Guess who I am> that is the best name
10:56:34 <UCBerkelium> Who's on first
10:58:10 <ynpvisitor48> You’re the kid who NEVER has school work.
10:58:26 <ynpvisitor48> Not a tough call there
10:58:54 <ynpvisitor48> The only time you are off chat is moving between classes
11:00:28 <Guess who I am> incorrect, I am Cooper
11:00:39 <Guess who I am> but right now I am allowed to be doing this
11:00:59 <Guess who I am> as my teacher is out of the classroom for 5 minutes to talk to the team lead
11:01:39 <ynpvisitor48> I was correct
11:01:57 <Cooper> you are incorrect... I am multitasking
11:02:05 <Cooper> working on homework from the last calss
11:02:19 <Cooper> and once he gets back I will leave again to do my work that he assigns
11:02:43 <ynpvisitor48> When I was in school, teachers TAUGHT
11:02:55 <ynpvisitor48> Not just give assignments
11:03:13 <Cooper> 48, out teacher DO TEACH
11:03:16 <Cooper> and Very well
11:03:32 <Cooper> and The Great Honorable Mr. Thurston has returned to his kingdom
11:03:34 <Cooper> time to go now
11:03:35 <Cooper> bbl
11:03:59 <ynpvisitor48> Please don’t
11:05:19 <Cooper> haha.. we have 5 minutes to get our lab set up... and I am not one of the lab setter upers
11:05:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> hard to keep up with modern schooling 48?
11:05:32 <Cooper> 48, what does that mean, please dont
11:06:12 <Cooper> I mean really, why did you say that "please don't"
11:06:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> computers didnt exist when i was in school, so i have no way to comprehend how school life is these days
11:06:49 <Cooper> You Know what... I will do what you say for now... and I will leave... I may be back later. Thanks Graham, everything is on Computers now adays
11:06:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> they were just being rude Cooper, no need to point it out any more
11:07:55 <Kevin L™🌵> "Computer" when I was in schol was a stick.
11:16:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> S observer list Casey, Aaron, Doug, Bill, the Birthday Girl- Carol, and William
11:16:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> SB
11:27:06 <Betty> OF ie?
11:27:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
11:27:48 <Betty> hi Kevin
11:30:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Getting used to your normal time again yet?
11:31:05 <Betty> yep
11:31:55 <Kevin L™🌵> That is quite an adjustment
11:37:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> backup entering the park at West gate
11:37:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> on the inbound side
11:38:20 <Betty> it is good to have some streaming frames
11:39:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> traffic seems to be moving into the park now
11:39:45 <Betty> hi Graham
11:39:56 <Betty> that is some traffic
11:41:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like its clearing out now
11:42:56 <Betty> did I miss a holiday?
11:43:26 <Betty> a doggie
11:43:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> must have been wildlife or a crash inside the park
11:45:01 <Betty> I really miss my Elk jam on the way out of the park in the evenings
11:46:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> local traffic congestion not that exciting?
11:46:38 <Betty> no :-)
11:46:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Much better than bison marmalade coming into the park.

12:21:38 <Eric> I am going to send those bot-girls to rude people :-P
12:21:46 <Kevin L™🌵> We enjoy your spelling too Dave.
12:22:02 <Betty> lol, Eric
12:22:04 <Eric> Hold up...I meant to have a disclaimer for being rude to Dave :-P
12:24:34 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
12:24:54 <Eric> and yes 14, I can make it so this chat will just ignore that users computer and not let them join.
12:25:00 <Betty> was the doc impressed?
12:25:08 <Dave from B™> Eric, can you track errors on this page? I bet I'm not the leader.
12:25:33 <Eric> haha....your keyboard skills have improved a lot over the last year!
12:26:01 <Dave from B™> Betty, the Doc was floored. He has been my doc for 12 years. Last Sept, highest blood pressure ever...this year lowest in my history with him. 122/69
12:26:10 <Dave from B™> :D ERic
12:26:17 <Eric> wow...well done Dave!
12:26:21 <Dave from B™> oops..CAP E error
12:26:29 <Betty> congrats! :thumbsup:
12:26:36 <Eric> That deserves a high 5 x 2!
12:26:48 <Dave from B™> It gives me extra motivation to keep it going
12:27:12 <Eric> My exercise doesn't really help my blood pressure...stupid genetics :-(
12:27:16 <Dave from B™> I'd like to lose 8-10 more but it will be tough
12:27:31 <Eric> My mom is 5'1 and skinny as a rail and still has high blood pressure.
12:27:33 <Dave from B™> Exercise is my biggest stress reliever
12:27:46 <Eric> had it her whole life...and I got that gene
12:28:02 <Eric> Yes, exercise is a nice stress reliever.
12:28:24 <Kevin L™🌵> So is tannerite.
12:29:23 <CraigC> hey Eric, been a while
12:29:28 <CraigC> congrats, Dave
12:29:38 <Betty> hi Craig
12:29:43 <Dave from B™> Thanks CraigC!
12:29:43 <Cooper> Hi again everyone
12:29:46 <CraigC> hey Betty
12:29:53 <Betty> hi Cooper
12:29:55 <Cooper> Hi Betty, Dave, Craig, Eric, GMK
12:30:21 <Cooper> Just saying but.... why is it that I was the only one to take notes while we were reading the passage?
12:30:30 <CraigC> Eric, is there any way to have an ignore feature in this chat?
12:30:44 <Cooper> it is crowded here
12:31:20 <Dave from B™> Cooper, wait until the camera actually works
12:31:50 <Cooper> haha.. so the getting Bee bit was just a random rare occurence then?
12:32:21 <Dave from B™> A camera being up for a cumulative of 45 minutes a day doesn't count
12:33:04 <Cooper> :p
12:33:46 <Cooper> any news on the new radio?
12:34:09 <Dave from B™> I think Kevin derailed it
12:34:41 <CraigC> 'derailed'... pun?
12:34:44 <Dave from B™> Last I heard, the radio has made it to YNP
12:35:06 <Dave from B™> CraigC....unintentionally...can't take credit for that one
12:35:24 <Eric> Hi Craig!
12:35:55 <Cooper> ? How does derailed= pun?
12:35:58 <Cooper> 0=
12:36:09 <Dave from B™> Kevin's love of trains?
12:36:12 <Cooper> oh, Kevin:p derailed it
12:36:16 <Cooper> now I get it
12:36:24 <Cooper> took my brain some time to catch up there
12:36:37 <ynpvisitor19> because it's supposed to be in school
12:36:46 <CraigC> Eric, I'm down almost 35 lbs, partly due to your inspiration. I think I am ready to do Monument Trail
12:37:03 <ynpvisitor19> you could do it Craig
12:37:04 <Eric> Woot....congrats to you Craig!
12:37:06 <Dave from B™> CraigC, do you have an ultimate goal?
12:37:16 <Dave from B™> That's terrific
12:37:18 <CraigC> Dave from B™, to feel good
12:37:19 <Cooper> 19, I took my notes while we were reading... so my teacher has to let the rest of my class catch up:p
12:37:29 <Dave from B™> haha. That's mine as well
12:37:53 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I have felt way better walking the basins, going at a good pace, carrying a pack
12:38:09 <CraigC> going up to Arty is cake now
12:38:36 <Eric> Wish I could have gotten into the basin this falls to chat with everyone again in person :-(
12:38:51 <CraigC> Eric, when is your next trip?
12:39:03 <Eric> feels great when you can knock down those barriers Craig
12:39:05 <Dave from B™> I have a group of 4 that have motivated me: Eric, Craig, my wife and a friend from college
12:39:25 <Dave from B™> wooh...don't tell me wife she was #3 on the list:)
12:39:30 <Eric> I have labor and memorial day weeks planned for next year, but it really depends on how expensive a school my daughter chooses :-P
12:39:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, you've also motivated me as well
12:39:55 <Eric> We know she is #1 Dave :-D
12:40:07 <Betty> can you all motivate me :-)
12:40:14 <Eric> Go Betty!
12:40:21 <Cooper> GO BETTY!
12:40:31 <Betty> lots of work to be done
12:40:34 <Dave from B™> One day at a time Betty
12:40:36 <Eric> Sorry, I did a poor job with all the tater tots and beer, but they were good :-D
12:40:46 <Rice> Eric,
12:40:47 <CraigC> Betty, come back to SB and walk back and forth to the platform and parking lot all day long
12:40:51 <Eric> Yes, even one foot at a time!
12:40:58 <Betty> boo, tater tots :-D
12:41:18 <Betty> haha, Craig
12:41:21 <Cooper> Betty, speaking of tater tots, did you like that American Treat?
12:41:36 <CraigC> I would have lost a lot more this last month if I hadn;t taken Nutter Butters and skads of granola bars
12:41:47 <Eric> I did 18 mile hike with about 6k vertical feet in it during the spring and it was literally dragging my feet one foot at a time to finish!
12:42:09 <Betty> to be honest, I was a kind of glad that F&M are not active this year ;-)
12:42:27 <Eric> Well, one thing you will find Craig is that when you are doing all this work, your body craves way more food.
12:42:51 <CraigC> Eric, yeah, I need to feed myself healthier stuff
12:42:56 <Dave from B™> Which is fine as long as good food goes in
12:42:57 <Cooper> and Betty, if you had to describe your trip in one word(that is not SB) what would it be?
12:43:35 <Eric> Sometimes good food is not easily available and you grab what you can and what looks good
12:44:06 <Dave from B™> That's why vacations are so hard
12:44:23 <Eric> My general rule now is always try to minimize carbohydrates and highly processed food.
12:44:35 <Dave from B™> I walked 38.5 and ran 4 miles during 4 days in Vegas and gained 5 pounds
12:44:37 <Cooper> time for me transfer my computer to lunch. be back in 10
12:44:42 <Betty> I liked the tater tots, my trip was gorgeous as always.
12:44:54 <Cooper> Nice Betty
12:44:54 <Eric> Yep, you lose weight in the kitchen and build muscle at the gym.
12:45:34 <Dave from B™> And, as soon as my son leaves for school, the better eating (less carbs) can begin again
12:45:55 <CraigC> my preference for packing the cooler for a day in YNP is PB & Honey sandwiches on the thin wheat bread slices, and cheese sticks
12:55:01 <Cooper> and back
12:57:24 <Cooper> OF ie
12:59:59 <Betty> headed out, bye all
13:00:13 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
13:01:34 <Cooper> bye Betty
13:02:22 <Cooper> haha.. my science teacher gave me 2 popsicles
13:02:48 <Cooper> for no special reason
13:02:51 <Eric> Night
13:03:11 <CraigC> product plug; I got these to try out in the basin for Fountain markers and GF overflow, and I really like them;
13:03:43 <Cooper> :thumbsup: nice
13:04:15 <CraigC> for only $26, and being compact, seems like a great deal
13:04:41 <Cooper> is that a trick question? with the "seems like"
13:05:12 <CraigC> subjective, not absolute
13:05:20 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
13:09:00 <Cooper> bye Craig
13:32:18 <Cooper> interesting ftn note
13:32:56 <Cooper> 2 parallel steam plumes
13:33:05 <Cooper> seen from FLdr
13:33:48 <Cooper> which means... possible Morning, or possible MT
13:49:22 <Cooper> time for me to go
13:49:34 <Cooper> good luck with this cam
13:49:43 <Cooper> you'll need it:p
13:50:56 <ynpvisitor41> It means Clepsydra and Fountain! Stop talking about that which you know NOTHING about
13:51:19 <ynpvisitor41> I am so sick of it
14:17:27 <ynpvisitor33> Leave poor Cooper alone. It is not his fault he knows everything about everything.
14:17:42 <Cooper> T3Q!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
14:17:50 <Cooper> Just came back 5 mins ago
14:17:54 <Cooper> and T3Q!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
14:18:08 <Cooper> Thank you 33
14:18:57 <Cooper> but 3 BURST!!!!!!!!!!!!
14:20:55 <Cooper> and now time for history.... learning about Slavery
15:05:43 <ynpvisitor87> Cooper needs to learn something about the subtleties of the english language. Irony seems to elude him.
15:07:02 <CraigC> what does 'elude' mean? ;)
15:09:21 <Dave from B™> In your line of former work, you had to have heard that word dozens of times:D
15:10:22 <CraigC> I guess it escaped my grasp, it passed by my awareness
15:12:22 <CraigC> hey Ryan
15:12:27 <Ryan(-18)> Howdy
15:12:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Ryan!
15:13:07 <Ryan(-18)> Hi, Kevin.
15:13:27 <Ryan(-18)> I see SB made you fight hard for 6, Craig.
15:14:47 <CraigC> Ryan(-18), I stayed one extra night, then decided I can't complain about not seeing another before getting back and taking care of stuff at home
15:15:11 <CraigC> just got my lawns mowed, so now I am good to go again.... j/k
15:15:18 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha
15:15:39 <ynpvisitor60> Get sheep, no need to mow.
15:15:52 <Dave from B™> Isn't it cheaper just to have someone else mow your lawn....or maybe you should just sell your winter home in Utah!
15:15:58 <CraigC> one word; zoningordinancessuck
15:16:04 <Ryan(-18)> Very nice! Yeah you had a heck of a run with that geyser.
15:16:28 <ynpvisitor60> Kevin will sell you lawn that does not need to be mowed.
15:16:29 <Ryan(-18)> I am selfishly breathing a sigh of relief after last night. I hope it just tripped over itself this time and it is still going back to 7s.
15:16:45 <CraigC> Ryan(-18), my guess is it will
15:16:58 <CraigC> it tried to give us a 6 and change
15:17:06 <ynpvisitor60> Don't the last 2 add up to 14?
15:17:27 <Dave from B™> Do you think SUPER MINOR delayed its eruption for a couple of days?
15:17:58 <CraigC> Dave from B™, not really.... it just went funky, but never stopped throwing good energetic minors
15:18:29 <Ryan(-18)> I think it did. the big false starts always seem to screw with it a bit.
15:18:32 <CraigC> but then, the temp logger did show a dip after that activity
15:18:37 <Dave from B™> Good point...temps on the logger stayed high
15:18:56 <Dave from B™> There were plenty of spikes to 50F but not to 60F like the big one
15:19:25 <Ryan(-18)> I am keeping ym fingers crossed. If it stays at 7.5d or so for the intervals there is a very high chance of all of the Sputs seeing Steamboat together.
15:19:30 <CraigC> look at how it started the pattern again
15:19:34 <CraigC>
15:20:41 <CraigC> wow, just noticed that the false start actually produced higher temp than the eruption
15:20:48 <Dave from B™> How long before you guys are too old to be called Sputs?
15:20:58 <Ryan(-18)> We will alway be the Sputs.
15:21:05 <CraigC> Spurts?
15:21:10 <Dave from B™> Someday you will be the Gray Sputs
15:21:11 <CraigC> Splats?
15:21:17 <Dave from B™> :D:D
15:21:33 <Ryan(-18)> hahahah
15:21:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Now THAT I can relate to.
15:22:12 <CraigC> Casey caught Aurum with Micah, icing on the cake after the SB
15:22:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum even excited the elk.
15:22:39 <Ryan(-18)> Either way, Craig, I hope you make it out here to try to see SB.
15:22:57 <Ryan(-18)> I have a campsite if you need one. Not sure where you stay when youre in the park
15:23:11 <CraigC> Ryan(-18), not sure, cuz last night my daughter and g/f said they have off around the 15th, so not sure I can do both, I'll see
15:23:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Just watch your mailbox Ryan.
15:23:25 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, hahahaha
15:23:30 <CraigC> and campchairs
15:29:41 <Dave from B™> Who would ever break something on their camping vehicle?
15:30:29 <CraigC> old farts
15:31:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess a sput could be considered a sort of a fart.
15:32:43 <Dave from B™> haha CraigC
15:35:44 <Dave from B™> I sure hope I can squeeze a day or two in YNP before it closes
15:39:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I can see Dave and Craig playing Dueling Banjos at the campground.
15:40:22 <CraigC> dang, that was cold ;)
15:40:31 <CraigC> Kevin, you have purty lips
15:40:49 <Dave from B™> hahaha
15:41:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Just don't take a canoe down the Madison.
15:41:42 <CraigC> we have our bows....
15:42:37 <CraigC> I think I still have that book my dad handed down to me as a kid
15:43:46 <CraigC> he took my to my first r rated movie, Marathon Man, that we both read before it was made to a movie
15:44:12 <CraigC> and also Andromeda Strain
15:44:31 <Eric> Squeal like a pig!
15:44:40 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a great movie. Just got it on blu ray
15:45:20 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, which one
15:45:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Andromeda Strain
15:45:42 <CraigC> cool.... other than the outfits LMAO
15:46:17 <CraigC> what was the drink the old man had "squeeze"?
15:46:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Have you seen Charade Craig?
15:46:34 <CraigC> doesnt sound familiar
15:46:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I thin so Craig.
15:47:05 <CraigC> cary grant?
15:47:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
15:47:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Audrey Hepburn.
15:47:31 <CraigC> nope, I am looking on imdb, never saw it
15:48:07 <CraigC> unless my folks watched it and I played legos instead
15:48:12 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a great movie. You are never sure who the bad guy(s) are until the end.
15:48:48 <Kevin L™🌵> One of the shortest movie roles ever in it.
15:48:59 <CraigC> I think the best sleeper suspense movie is Shattered, with Tom Berenger
15:49:17 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, who had the short role?
15:49:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Wait Until Dark is another great suspense move. Mostly filmed in one room.
15:50:03 <CraigC> wow James Coburn in it, too..... mr in like flint
15:50:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I am not sure the actor but he was Hepburn's husband.
15:52:11 <CraigC> Gorgeous Audrey Hepburn and debonair Cary Grant sparkle in the film, which has been called 'the best Hitchcock film he never made'.
15:53:18 <Kevin L™🌵> That really sums it up!
15:53:59 <Kevin L™🌵> It is one that is entertaining even if you know the ending.
15:54:13 <CraigC> check out Shattered
15:56:53 <CraigC> OF on static
15:57:42 <CraigC> looks like 2 mins ago
15:57:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow finally was able to grab the controls for an OF!
15:58:10 <Kevin L™🌵> And it dies
15:59:30 <CraigC> Charade is on amazon prime, so I added to my watchlist
16:00:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like a modern Film Noir Craig.
16:01:21 <Kevin L™🌵> You will enjoy it.
16:02:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls are released. I got to make 5 move with the cam for half a Bee today. :p
16:02:51 <ynpvisitor90> Thanks Kevin!
16:03:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck!
16:03:19 <ynpvisitor90> hahaha
16:06:01 <Cooper> Afternoon again everyone
16:06:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
16:06:34 <Ryan(-17)> I havent been here for a while - whats up with the cam?
16:06:37 <Cooper> Hi GMK
16:06:41 <Cooper> Hi Ryan
16:07:00 <Kevin L™🌵> There is nothing "up" about this cam.
16:07:59 <Ryan(-17)> I see that
16:08:03 <Kevin L™🌵> We get more frames from the static cam at this point. Supposed to be a new radio link to fix it but not yet installed.
16:08:12 <Cooper> Tropical Storm Landfall expected right where Kat lives
16:12:26 <Cooper> :daisy:
16:12:35 <Cooper> Bulger
16:14:47 <Kevin L™🌵> I think this is the longest it has been up all day.
16:15:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I killed it!
16:17:51 <Cooper> bad bad kevin
16:40:13 <GO MORNING> time fr Morning to erupt again and confuse the gazers
16:40:24 <Cooper> haha
16:40:26 <Cooper> Hi Graham
16:40:29 <Cooper> that would be nice
16:42:19 <GO MORNING> i am glad some gazers saw steamboat but wish others had seen it, Ben was unlucky again
16:42:37 <Cooper> yup
16:43:33 <CraigC> why unlucky, isn;t he still at Yellowstone?
16:43:58 <Cooper> Hi Michael
16:44:43 <GO MORNING> yes but he returns home before the next SB
16:44:44 <Michael> Hi Cooper
16:45:12 <GO MORNING> sorry you missed it too Michael
16:45:59 <CraigC> I felt bad for Will, he only gets to be there on Sundays
16:46:37 <CraigC> now it will not be in a good window for who knows how long
16:46:42 <GO MORNING> true, had to catch it on aone day sit
16:47:15 <GO MORNING> if it does more 8d intervals he will run out of time
16:47:44 <GO MORNING> i see we are back to 49 eruptions in the last 12 months and likely to slip to 48
16:49:24 <Michael> Sure hope it doesn't dally as long this next interval.
16:49:39 <CraigC> I wonder how the weather and temps were last night. If I had stayed mroe nights, not sure how late I would have stayed. The night it erupted we stayed til almost 1 am at the platform, but other nights since then, I have left between 930 and 1030
16:51:38 <Kevin L™🌵> It is 57° at OF now. I think it would be pretty cold at night.
16:52:15 <lc> hey everyone
16:52:19 <CraigC> lc!!!
16:52:33 <Cooper> hi lc
16:52:45 <lc> got home couple of hours ago.
16:52:57 <CraigC> good to hear you made it back ok
16:53:16 <Kevin L™🌵> You drive don't you?
16:53:33 <lc> yes, 4 days
16:54:33 <lc> glad SB finally went but too bad it went at night again.
16:54:46 <Michael> CraigC, Old Faithful was down around 40 degrees most of the night, if that's any indication.
16:54:55 <Michael> Hi lc.
16:55:14 <lc> going to be interesting to see what happens now.
16:55:27 <Michael> Night-time seems to be taking up more of the day now. Takes some getting used to.
16:56:26 <lc> 13 hr days enough for me, can't spend night there.
16:56:39 <CraigC> cold is what sends me off to the parking lot now
16:56:46 <Ryan(-17)> I plan on being out all night when I am there.
16:57:00 <Ryan(-17)> Were packing for severe cold (0-10F) and hoping for warmer.
16:57:17 <GO MORNING> glad you are home lc
16:57:24 <Ryan(-17)> Having a car in the parking lot this time of my own will make it more attractive. Last time, if I stayed out, I was on my own until dawn.
16:57:43 <Kevin L™🌵> You live in Ogden and don't like cold?
16:57:59 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, yes, I have a furnace and wood stove :)
16:58:04 <lc> was only low 30's early morning when we were there.
16:58:39 <CraigC> I had 9 layers on my last sit
16:59:18 <Ryan(-17)> Im seriously packing puffy jackets, thermal underlayers, a fleece onesie, puffy bottoms - the works.
16:59:36 <Ryan(-17)> And probably an airpad to sit on and lean against the railing with to stay up off the cold benches.
16:59:51 <lc> awnyone know if the guys from KY got the eruption
16:59:55 <Ryan(-17)> Its my last chance to see it, I assume. I am not missing it without a fight.
17:00:00 <Michael> The pad seems like a great idea, just for rain/wet conditions.
17:00:06 <lc> I didn't get names
17:00:21 <CraigC> lc, yeah, casey and crew were there
17:00:21 <lc> I think a dad and 2 sons.
17:00:28 <CraigC> aaron
17:00:49 <CraigC> casey comes in here sometimes
17:00:58 <lc> glad to hear that, they deserved it.
17:01:07 <CraigC> yeah, good dudes
17:01:25 <lc> Ma just called FOOD. I will check back later.
17:01:50 <Michael> See you, lc.
17:02:00 <Cooper> bye lc
17:11:39 <Ryan(-17)> Sigh, some day I will learn to backup my images when I take them.
17:11:44 <Ryan(-17)> I havent lost any, yet.
17:12:00 <Ryan(-17)> Theres just RAW files on cards from as far back as last July and I havent removed them.
18:18:05 <Cooper> Won my badminton match:) 21-14
18:18:21 <ynpvisitor63> :thumbsup:
18:18:26 <Kevin L™🌵> He gave you the bird?
18:19:02 <Cooper> ish.....
18:19:22 <Cooper> I have a strategy that I employ on the best players....
18:20:03 <Cooper> I stat out giving him/her the bird... and let them get up on me
18:20:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Diamond Are Forever is on tonight. I watched them film some of that movie.
18:20:23 <Cooper> and then I take the bird.. and come back to the point where they can not get the birdie back and I win.
18:21:03 <Cooper> oh fun.. a 007 type movie
18:21:56 <Kevin L™🌵> The mortuary they used is about a half mile from where I grew up. It is the one that did my Dad.
18:22:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the older Connery Bonds.
18:22:40 <Cooper> :p makes some sense:p
18:23:14 <Cooper> if you do not mind.. I would like to state that the GMK is old and VERY Wise
18:23:37 <Cooper> and when I say Wide I mean VERY VERY VERY VERY So
18:23:42 <Cooper> Wide/****
18:23:47 <Cooper> not Wide**
18:23:49 <Cooper> ugg
18:23:53 <Cooper> Wise*****
18:24:03 <Cooper> yes that.. wise:p
18:24:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I am pretty wide...
18:24:31 <Cooper> then you are Old, VERY WIse, and a little little bit Wide
18:26:02 <Kevin L™🌵> The place they used for a lab is really a sheetrock plant.
18:26:21 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
18:27:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I did RR inspections along their line to the UP. One time they let me drive their train back to the plant from I-15.
18:27:52 <Cooper> so.. did that spark your interest in Trains?
18:28:51 <Cooper> oh...0=
18:29:06 <Cooper> you were doing RR Inspections.. so you must have already liked trains
18:29:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably the first thing that really got me interested was a Lionel layout in Woolworth's on Fremont Street just before I was two.
18:29:38 <Cooper> 2!!!! WOW... Impressive.. that was what then like 45 years ago?
18:29:48 <ynpvisitor27> On simple I do not get all the webcam exercise notes. Up Down Up Down, reminds me of Richard Simmons on talk shows.
18:30:00 <Kevin L™🌵> F ew more years than that!
18:30:08 <Cooper> 47?
18:30:13 <Kevin L™🌵> So right 27
18:30:26 <Cooper> I agree 27
18:30:41 <ynpvisitor27> I think Woolworths was closed 45 years ago.
18:31:04 <Cooper> Kevin, you can not be that old!
18:31:18 <Cooper> you do not sound like it if you do!
18:31:24 <Kevin L™🌵> The second thing that really made an impression was when UP was using an old steamer to switch at the Las Vegas Depot when we were picking up my Aunt. It was incredible.
18:31:32 <ynpvisitor27> He knew Of when it was just a hot spring.
18:31:56 <Cooper> WOW Kevin!
18:31:59 <Cooper> Haha 27
18:32:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I parked at Daisy the first time I went to Yellowstone.
18:32:14 <ynpvisitor27> They had cars back then?
18:32:25 <Cooper> I heard about that parking lot a long time ago! ONCE
18:32:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I was in the stagecoach!
18:32:30 <ynpvisitor27> I guess you could park a wagon
18:32:56 <Kevin L™🌵> There was a traffic light between the Inn and the Lodge.
18:33:15 <Cooper> haha! insane
18:33:21 <ynpvisitor27> people are moving
18:34:23 <Cooper> N WAY!
18:34:27 <Cooper> No*
18:37:40 <ynpvisitor27> Kevin was the light like this?[1%2F3%2F9%2F4%2F0%2F13940860]%2Csizedata[850x600]&call=url[file%3Aproduct.chain]
18:37:57 <ynpvisitor27>[1%2F3%2F9%2F4%2F0%2F13940860]%2Csizedata[850x600]&call=url[file%3Aproduct.chain]
18:38:02 <ynpvisitor27> maybe not
18:38:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Link has a bad attitude.
18:40:32 <Kevin L™🌵> They made it fit in:
19:11:50 <Cooper> ok.. any bets on my question?.............
19:12:21 <Cooper> If I calculate the density of Regular Air, and then the Density of Directly Exhaled Air, Will They be different?
19:14:21 <Cooper> ok then, 0-0:p Everyting is set.. time to get my Science Nerd on
19:41:51 <Cooper> that was an easy experiment:p
19:43:24 <Cooper> and I conclude... The Density of Air before and after we exhale are slightly different...but experimental errors in the lab it can be determined that the Density of Air before and after we exhale are the same density
20:21:37 <Cooper> nice
20:21:38 <Cooper> Grand
20:51:20 <Cooper> BTW... you can thank my science teacher for this... everyday I am going to leave for bed and end with, "A Quote" and then Cooper Out:), take the quotes or leave the quotes
20:52:31 <Cooper> “Work for a cause, not for applause. Live life to express, not to impress.”
20:52:39 <Cooper> Goodnight All, Cooper Out
