05:51:20 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
05:51:33 <CraigC> campage hasn't loaded for me yet
05:53:04 <Joe> Hi Craig, the camera has been up for a total of 45 minutes since midnight, just got it switched to OF, Good luck
05:53:17 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:54:32 <Joe> Nice that there were people out last night, the camera saw zero of the geysers that they posted!
05:55:48 <CraigC> dang
05:55:49 <Joe> The cam is yours when you can get it
05:55:58 <CraigC> ok
06:10:36 <Joe> People in Gov't wonder why the public has such a bad perception of their 'ability's', this is a prime example, the camera started failing late April, it is now middle September, the new radio has been in their hands since the first of the month, What do they think that the casual observer would surmise ?
06:11:43 <CraigC> that you broke it, Joe
06:12:09 <Joe> >(>(>(:thumbsup::thumbsup:>(>(
06:12:15 <CraigC> ;)
06:12:59 <CraigC> the people elect boneheads
06:13:53 <Joe> That seems to be all that runs for office :)
06:14:04 <CraigC> yep
06:15:36 <Joe> Well...on to geysers...seen any lately :)
06:16:06 <CraigC> not in real life, but I dreamed about waiting on some that my mind created
06:16:30 <Joe> :)
06:18:40 <CraigC> I'm guessing about 20 to 40 mins for OF, but I'll leave here until then, and then point down basin
06:19:37 <CraigC> NPS needs OF prediction above all else :)
06:23:14 <CraigC> at least we will have static image soon
06:43:09 <Joe> The camera has been up for less than ten minutes since 0534
06:54:56 <CraigC> OF
06:57:21 <LindaG> Good morning all
06:57:34 <CraigC> hey Linda
06:57:41 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
06:57:57 <LindaG> Camera was lousy yesterday too
06:58:07 <CraigC> and all summer, too
06:58:43 <LindaG> So true
06:59:46 <ynpvisitor44> Happy Birthday Lina
07:00:03 <CraigC> LindaG, oh yeah, Happy Birthday!!!!!
07:00:10 <CraigC> hey Graham
07:00:16 <GO GOGGLE> morning
07:00:34 <LindaG> GO GOGGLE, hi
07:00:53 <LindaG> CraigC, thanks craig!
07:01:27 <LindaG> ynpvisitor44, thank you
07:03:05 <Joe> Happy '39' Linda :)
07:03:27 <LindaG> Maybe there will be a happy Birthday giantess eruption πŸ˜€ that I wont get to see lol
07:04:05 <LindaG> Joe, thx, a diplomat always πŸ˜€
07:04:37 <CraigC> crap, not enough time to move it
07:04:56 <LindaG> Lol it's always a challenge
07:06:25 <LindaG> Ah I was wondering who 44 was, it was Graham. Thx graham.
07:07:29 <Joe> 29 would have been too young, but with 39 I know I am very close... :)
07:08:05 <LindaG> Joe, πŸ˜€ unfortunately not
07:08:48 <Joe> I was just being more 'diplomatic' :)
07:09:38 <CraigC> why.... Happy Birthday old lady
07:09:44 <LindaG> Joe, I know and I appreciate it. Have no idea where the years go.
07:09:44 <KittyM> Good morning, all
07:09:45 <Joe> but no matter "Happy Birthday"
07:09:56 <CraigC> hey Kitty
07:10:04 <KittyM> hey
07:10:10 <KittyM> Happy Birthday for Linda?
07:10:20 <Joe> yes
07:10:23 <LindaG> KittyM, hi, yup
07:10:35 <KittyM> :thumbsup::thumbsup:Happy Birthday!
07:10:52 <LindaG> KittyM, thx 😊
07:11:05 <Joe> move craig
07:11:15 <CraigC> ha
07:11:16 <Joe> oops done
07:11:53 <LindaG> Gotta be quick like a bunny πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡
07:12:12 <CraigC> if I dont refresh at the perfect time, then it sends me to a page unresponsive
07:12:24 <GO GOGGLE> linda can use her birthday wish to get the cam to work
07:14:01 <LindaG> Ok, for my birthday I wish the cam would stay up all day, uninterrupted! If that cant be done an hour would be cool.
07:14:41 <LindaG> Really 15 minutes would be good too.
07:15:33 <KittyM> I see we have lowered our expectations :D. I want up all day like it used to be!
07:15:36 <CraigC> not even sure what the point is
07:15:38 <Joe> We do not even have an hour total uptime since midnight :(
07:15:57 <LindaG> Its up
07:16:05 <LindaG> Its down
07:16:07 <LindaG> Lol
07:16:15 <CraigC> it is on down basin on my cam screen
07:16:46 <LindaG> The software hasnt caught up
07:16:52 <CraigC> so around 831, it will catch up
07:17:37 <LindaG> 6 hrs of this is a drag
07:18:28 <LindaG> Thank goodness Eric put that indicator on the chat board, I just watch that
07:19:11 <CraigC> the globe in the cam window is ahead of the messages
07:19:25 <ynpvisitor44> Happy Birthday Linda,may Your day be a Special one.
07:19:27 <Joe> ah down basin!!
07:19:49 <LindaG> ynpvisitor44, thank you
07:20:03 <ynpvisitor44> You are sure welcome
07:21:58 <LindaG> I find cam streams here first before the cam software
07:22:41 <LindaG> Many times its streaming here and u cant get control
07:22:52 <LindaG> *I
07:23:29 <CraigC> I am spending more time reloading the entire process
07:23:46 <GO GOGGLE> i am guessing they had clear sky for full moon with Heinrick at Grand and B**B at BH
07:24:00 <CraigC> if I click something after the window ends, it locks up
07:24:41 <LindaG> I find it locks a lot when I zoom.
07:24:59 <CraigC> 90 more minutes of this crap :(
07:25:31 <Joe> If you want to see time fly by, watch the overnight capture :)
07:25:36 <CraigC> if anyone else wants to try, you can have it
07:25:40 <LindaG> Until thevmsg here says webcam up I wouldn't bother refreshing
07:26:18 <CraigC> Joe, I bet
07:26:32 <LindaG> Just anticipate the next prediction and leave it
07:27:14 <LindaG> Although you see globe it's actually streaming here
07:27:51 <CraigC> since we have OF on static, my suggestion would to leave cam on the hill all the time until it is resolved
07:27:51 <Joe> R-side next, for the cam to miss
07:28:10 <CraigC> or night view
07:29:07 <CraigC> the enjoyment of this concept is long gone
07:29:14 <LindaG> I gave up trying g to refresh all the time, not worth it. Some days are better than others
07:29:48 <GO GOGGLE> or leave it down basin to try and catch Daisy
07:29:59 <GO GOGGLE> i gave up on Wed too
07:30:03 <CraigC> GO GOGGLE, :thumbsup:
07:30:24 <GO GOGGLE> no need to go to OF since the static cam covers it better
07:32:24 <Joe> Long nights of staring at nothing is tough then watching it again on my recording is even tougher :)
07:33:42 <LindaG> Joe, yikes all those blue screens
07:34:49 <LindaG> Well I have things to so I'll catch everyone later, thx for the birthday cheer πŸ˜€
07:35:30 <LindaG> I guess I dont rank cause the cam didnt come up, I tried
07:38:01 <Cooper> Who cares about a little rain huh? The XC Coaches decided to DELAY our meet 2 hours
07:38:13 <Cooper> why! it was just 2.5 inches of rain!
07:39:34 <Cooper> but anyways... Hi Everyone
07:42:50 <GO GOGGLE> riverside
07:44:55 <ynpvisitor41> cant even get the cam control page to load for the last while, I even restarted my PC
07:47:50 <Cooper> could they just fix this darn thing before winter, that is all I ask of them
07:48:10 <Joe> Here is a screen shot of my recording files since midnight, recorder started 45 times, with some large gaps
07:48:27 <Cooper> Time for me to head to my XC Meet AGAIN, bbl
07:48:38 <ynpvisitor41> Joe, ughhhh
07:55:01 <GO GOGGLE> I see Suzanne posted full moon pictures ... you should have been there Craig
08:24:46 <ynpvisitor...> Yellowstone 30,1,2. Old House Dormer Room. Happy! Happy! I will be close to the cam and will have my slingshot. Shake things up a bit :)
08:25:41 <Joe> I hope you are accurate :)
08:26:03 <ynpvisitor...> I would be better with a long stick
08:26:24 <ynpvisitor...> I'll try for the tour
08:27:34 <Joe> check the grounding on the radio while you are up there
08:28:28 <ynpvisitor...> I am hope for new raido and success by then
08:29:37 <Joe> ha
08:29:45 <ynpvisitor41> of
08:29:48 <ynpvisitor...> OF 0829 wc ie
08:38:46 <ynpvisitor...> Daisy would be nice
08:38:47 <ynpvisitor41> daisy
08:39:06 <ynpvisitor...> 0838
08:39:41 <ynpvisitor41> in basin entry, also
08:39:50 <ynpvisitor41> hey Tom
08:40:00 <TomK> hi all.
08:40:09 <ynpvisitor...> Yes. Very good. Now we need Aurum to start the day.
08:41:01 <CraigC> grand and castle on deck, gonna leave cam here for now, unless Tom wants it
08:42:28 <ynpvisitor...> One small branch less and static would be very good for Aurum.
08:43:01 <CraigC> cam has improved slightly the last half hour, but was worthless before that
08:44:53 <TomK> Cam good here. I'm still setting up, tea and cookies, ec
08:55:00 <TomK> Got the am
08:55:06 <TomK> cam
08:57:23 <GO GOGGLE> congrats Tom
08:57:26 <CraigC> good luck
08:57:40 <Michael> I hope you know CPR.
08:58:16 <TomK> :)
09:00:21 <TomK> I'll keep it here, Castle or Grand and move to OF when close to window. Start trying to move it there around 0940
09:01:14 <TomK> Please call Aurum if you see it & Illl try to switch
09:17:59 <CraigC> grand
09:18:02 <CraigC> .
09:18:03 <CraigC> .
09:18:03 <CraigC> .
09:18:28 <CraigC> I bet it will get entered in basin
09:19:30 <TomK> There are gazers in the basin? not all at Steamboat?
09:20:07 <ynpvisitor109> Why would they be at SB??
09:21:10 <ynpvisitor109> Only 2 days since last one
09:21:21 <TomK> Don't know, but over Labor day I saw zero gazers
09:21:48 <ynpvisitor109> Keep up Tom!
09:21:56 <TomK> all were at Staemboat, so I was told
09:22:19 <Michael> Might be a bit sparse this morning, depends on how many were out enjoying the moonlight.
09:22:36 <TomK> :)
09:22:49 <TomK> Sarcasm intended
09:23:30 <Joe> HK is in basin but got the 0333 grand he may be there now
09:24:11 <Joe> scratch the but
09:25:13 <CraigC> bulger
09:25:26 <CraigC> not going to scratch the butt
09:25:28 <Joe> lots of bodys on the BW
09:25:37 <TomK> Que?
09:25:46 <Joe> Craig :)
09:26:18 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Craig only scratches mailboxes.
09:26:20 <CraigC> tom fixed the cam
09:26:37 <CraigC> Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅, LOL
09:30:09 <LindaG> Thought my birthday wish had come true
09:30:14 <LindaG> A
09:30:32 <LindaG> Oh maybe it did, cams back up
09:31:04 <ynpvisitor2> did you wish for 3 or 4 seconds of live streaming?
09:31:19 <Joe> Yellowstone is not the Magic Kingdom :(
09:31:38 <ynpvisitor2> It was while I was there
09:31:47 <LindaG> ynpvisitor2, πŸ˜€ a whole day or whatever it could do lol
09:31:48 <CraigC> people can;t pet bison at the Magic Kingdom
09:32:18 <Joe> good point :)
09:32:54 <ynpvisitor2> Only because there isn't a bison disney character
09:33:17 <LindaG> They do continue to try though
09:33:37 <CraigC> last week a bison chased a dude on Fountain Flats and tried twice to gore him, near misses. We saw the dude walking out there, then a guy at the parking lot showed us the video he shot of it all
09:34:17 <LindaG> He was probably disappointed the bison missed him
09:34:24 <CraigC> I know I was
09:34:39 <LindaG> 3πŸ˜‹
09:34:49 <TomK> a little early for OF, but I may not have the chance again
09:35:31 <ynpvisitor2> wow, 4 minutes Linda, you were lucky
09:35:44 <ynpvisitor2> back to unpacking
09:36:01 <ynpvisitor2> this is Kitt over and out
09:36:13 <LindaG> ynpvisitor2, bye kitt
10:40:42 <Michael> Castle.
10:40:59 <Michael> We'll see for sure when the camera comes up again.
11:10:20 <Michael> Daisy ie. Should have been watching.
11:10:21 <TomK> Daisy
11:10:54 <TomK> I had it set to see both
11:11:20 <Michael> Yup. And I was reading a webpage on another tab when Daisy started...
11:11:35 <Michael> That's the story of most of my camera-gazing.
11:12:21 <Michael> Glad B**2 doesn't have as many distractions out in the basin today.
11:14:05 <TomK> to the hill next cam up
11:25:22 <Michael> Hi Dave.
11:25:36 <Dave from Bβ„’> Good afternoon Michael
11:35:19 <ynpvisitor61> TIme to head to SB. Sunday is the day.
11:37:33 <Michael> What's going to happen Sunday?
11:38:24 <ynpvisitor61> There she blows. To quote a whaler.
11:38:33 <Dave from Bβ„’> You mean a week from tomorrow?
11:39:01 <ynpvisitor61> Nope. It has had 3 day intervals, it is due.
11:39:44 <Michael> *shrug* Seems unlikely to me, but stranger things have happened.
11:40:56 <ynpvisitor61> At the cost of predictions, I stick by it.
11:41:38 <ynpvisitor61> Besides, i ma be as close as the last round of predictions.
11:43:08 <Michael> I can't argue with that. Steamboat laughed at my last armchair prediction as it passed by.
11:48:44 <ynpvisitor11> "predictable" geysers :) fun but try not to take yourself too seriously, for thou shalt be disappointed :)
11:49:27 <Dave from Bβ„’> Isn't that the truth! Here goes Sb with be between the last 2 intervals
11:49:32 <ynpvisitor61> I have been correct more times then the weather man!
11:50:02 <ynpvisitor11> so not very much :):)
11:51:16 <Dave from Bβ„’> My "perdiction batting average" is worse than most major league pitchers
11:51:27 <Michael> If I was planning to freeze out at Norris waiting for the next one, I'd try harder to make a good prediction. Not that trying harder would help.
11:51:44 <Dave from Bβ„’> There not paid to bat and I'm not paid to make predictions:)
11:52:43 <Dave from Bβ„’> For sanity reasons, I prefer the 2 day sit compared to the 3-5 day sit. Pick the 2 most likely days and stay there all day..and hope it doesn't erupt at night
11:54:03 <ynpvisitor61> Wa too many things to see in the park to set for 2 days in one spot.
11:54:47 <Dave from Bβ„’> 61, have you seen a SB eruption?
11:55:15 <ynpvisitor61> No and not likely to either.
11:55:23 <Michael> Definitely depends on whether you can sacrifice 2 days and still enjoy the trip.
11:56:02 <Dave from Bβ„’> I agree Michael. The length of your trip is a big factor in that and in how far you have to travel to get to the park.
11:56:11 <TomK> 61 I had the same idea. Saw zero gazers in 2 days
11:57:40 <Michael> It used to be that way even in the Upper Basin. No reports of anything on Geyser Hill on "F&M day."
11:57:42 <TomK> Spoke with Kitt in the lower store on my way out of the park 9/3
11:58:12 <GO GOGGLE> as i told people "there are some people here who have ever seen it and want to see it, and there are others that have seen it" you can complete that sentence
11:59:05 <GO GOGGLE> you can always sit at Vixen, or Porcelain
11:59:20 <GO GOGGLE> plenty of people to chat with
12:00:22 <ynpvisitor61> Well time to go. Enjoy the memories of hot water. Looks like about all you will have today.
12:00:25 <GO GOGGLE> once you have seen it, you want to see it again
12:00:39 <Michael> See you 61.
12:01:10 <GO GOGGLE> but some dont want to see it, quite a few ... although i did see some that didnt try last year that decided to try this year
12:01:59 <Dave from Bβ„’> Why would you NOT want to see it? Too much time investment?
12:02:16 <Dave from Bβ„’> It is the "Holy Grail" of gazing
12:02:17 <Michael> I apparently don't have it in me to make an unplanned trip to the Park just to try.
12:02:56 <Dave from Bβ„’> Michael, that is different. You are a long ways away. But, if you made a planned trip to the park wouldn't you try a couple days if you were in the park for a week?
12:04:41 <Michael> Almost certainly. Chances are good I wouldn't have anything better* to do.
12:05:06 <Dave from Bβ„’> Besides, sitting with dozens of other gazers can be fun
12:05:28 <Michael> *most normal tourists would disagree with that part...
12:05:44 <Dave from Bβ„’> hahaha...very true
12:11:00 <TomK> Lion
12:11:52 <Dave from Bβ„’> TomK, if I remember correctly, you are from WA state?
12:12:41 <TomK> Bellingham, 100 mi. N of Seattle
12:13:35 <Michael> I'd better go out and enjoy the nice weather here for a while. Nice chatting with you all.
12:13:48 <TomK> That's where I live now. You don't have enuf time to get the history
12:14:12 <Dave from Bβ„’> That's what I thought. Headed there to drop off my son at WWU in a week.
12:14:28 <Dave from Bβ„’> Aren't you a former NPS ranger?
12:14:35 <TomK> I take senior classes at WWU
12:15:55 <TomK> Summer Ranger in YNP 1995 - 2010 with one season out to drive the bus in 1999.
12:17:02 <Dave from Bβ„’> 15 years, nice. That was my dream growing up until I decided I liked money and the ability to travel more.
12:17:42 <Dave from Bβ„’> My college roommate and friend ended up being a LE ranger at YNP for over 30 years
12:18:14 <TomK> I made money 30 years, did ranger after going back to school. Liked that better
12:19:42 <Dave from Bβ„’> I know it is rewarding. I can see the joy in many rangers eyes. It's a lot like being a teacher. My wife and middle child have teaching in their blood.
12:20:30 <TomK> My wife, Ranger Joanne Kearney is at the OF VC. Her 25th summer in the park. Worked or the old Photo shop, step-on guide, then NPS
12:21:07 <Dave from Bβ„’> That's great
12:22:03 <TomK> I forgot she also worked for Lee Whittlesee (sp?)
12:22:51 <Dave from Bβ„’> Lee's a bundle of knowledge. I took a couple institute classes from him many many years ago. I love park history
12:24:28 <TomK> Leslie Quinn says she's the only person ever to work for NPS, Amfac and Hamilton
12:24:58 <GO GOGGLE> Dave - theres the perception that theres nothing to see or do at Norris, as Maureen puts it "staring at dirt". I dont feel tht ay as the minors ar interesting to watch
12:26:01 <GO GOGGLE> people could stay in the parking lot if they dont want to be far from the bathrooms and come when it starts
12:26:55 <TomK> Lots to see in Norris, I led walks there 2000 - 2002
12:27:30 <GO GOGGLE> but its a good thing people want different thigs
12:27:47 <GO GOGGLE> i cant stand at the BH tailing staring at the hole to see water rising in the indicator
12:29:24 <GO GOGGLE> others like to run and check Artie each morning
12:29:34 <GO GOGGLE> some like to see Fountain with flashlights :)
12:43:42 <Dave from Bβ„’> Yes, we all have different obsessions:)
12:50:38 <TomK> Ignore announcement, TomK did NOT quit
12:51:15 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> We figured you were just on a potty break.
12:51:20 <TomK> Shit ends soon, bac to OF ASAP
12:51:31 <TomK> "shift"
12:51:37 <TomK> :)
12:51:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> :)
12:52:04 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I can relate to what you are thinking...
12:52:15 <Dave from Bβ„’> Was that a Freudian slip?:)
12:52:27 <Betty> Kevin is the master of the potty break
12:52:34 <TomK> Probably ;)
12:52:36 <Betty> hi guys
12:52:51 <TomK> hi

13:00:00 <TomK> good luck, it's all yours
13:00:31 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I know where I WANT to take it.
13:01:02 <TomK> Cya folks. Back next saturday morning.
13:01:13 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Bye Tom
13:13:10 <Dave from Bβ„’> Hi Betty

14:06:30 <GO GOGGLE> Altstidls were at Artie
14:06:35 <CraigC> I weigh the same

14:23:01 <Betty> you need to do so, Craig
14:23:28 <ynpvisitor93> "CraigC, Come On Down..."

14:25:19 <ynpvisitor93> I can go Tues and Fri - so it will erupt Wed-Thurs
14:30:06 <ynpvisitor93> Figure I should keep trying to see one more until time runs out!
14:30:45 <Betty> you sure should try that
14:31:38 <ynpvisitor93> But I know it's going to slow down some time, and I am fine with that
14:34:10 <Betty> IΒ΄m so glad I was able to see SB
14:34:26 <Betty> it was so much fun
14:34:50 <ynpvisitor93> I know!! So Great! You did good. :)

14:37:12 <ynpvisitor93> next week gets rainy/snowy again
14:38:50 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> The Nascar racers here are having overheating problems but not due to the heat.
14:39:36 <GO GOGGLE> overeating?
14:39:48 <Betty> lol
14:40:34 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Grasshoppers plugging the cooling vents.
14:40:45 <Betty> ugh
14:41:34 <ynpvisitor93> ew
14:42:15 <GO GOGGLE> nice. do you still have a big swarm, i thought it wasnt supposed to last
14:42:41 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Not as bad but they are still here.
14:42:50 <Betty> now you mention it, we were at the gas station at the speedway and saw some grasshoppers
14:44:56 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Were there any in Rainbow Canyon Betty?
14:45:23 <Betty> not that I saw tthem
14:53:46 <ynpvisitor97> A plauge of hopper in sin city, who would have thought?
14:54:33 <Betty> OF seems to be done
14:55:22 <Betty> people leaving
14:55:46 <Betty> and NPS has a new prediction
14:56:13 <Betty> my static is frozen
14:56:14 <CraigC2> not seeing it on static
14:57:11 <CraigC2> oh, mine is frozen too

15:39:10 <Betty> Mighty Kevin
15:39:15 <Cooper> yes
15:39:52 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Well we got a few frames.
15:39:53 <Cooper> he is the Great Might Kevin, Who is Old and VERY Wise
15:40:11 <Cooper> That is very true, and surprising.
15:40:27 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Most people call me a frog.
15:40:31 <Cooper> b1 done
15:40:40 <Cooper> Haha Kevin
15:40:48 <Betty> GMF
15:40:58 <LindaG> Hate when I dont realize its streaming and Im staring at the X
15:41:03 <Cooper> well... I know you better:p and so I know how Great, Mighty, and Wise you are
15:41:09 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Getting old and ready to croak.
15:41:20 <Cooper> haha
15:42:00 <Betty> I think it was you then croaking at Elgin schoolhouse :-)
15:42:19 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> May have been.
15:42:24 <LindaG> 😊
15:42:37 <Cooper> :D
15:42:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Although we do the tannerite just up the hill from there.
15:42:47 <Betty> croak croak
15:43:00 <Cooper> GMCK
15:43:06 <ynpvisitor11> I don't think someone knows what a frog is :)
15:43:07 <Cooper> Great Might Croaking Kevin:p
15:43:24 <Cooper> I think I will just stick with GMK.
15:44:04 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> My Dad was in the emergency room once and the Dr they sent in was named Croake.
15:44:25 <Cooper> haha
15:44:42 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, so those grasshoppers are causing havoc huh?
15:45:00 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Nascar is going to ban them.
15:45:32 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, you would think the doctor would change his name πŸ˜€
15:46:08 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> They were talking about how you can grasshopper with no grass. One guy pointed out they were tan spotted instead of green. He said they were dressed in camo.
15:46:30 <Cooper> :p
15:47:03 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I agree Linda. We were laughing and a Nun walked by. Said you don't see a lot of people laughing in the ER so we showed her the card.
15:47:10 <LindaG> Praying mantis come in beige and green. One is native one is an invasive species.
15:47:34 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, 🀣
15:48:59 <CraigC2> I thought the praying mantis changed from green to beige at the end of the season
15:49:41 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Down here they do. They get fried by September.
15:49:44 <LindaG> Never heard that. I did have a beige one on the window today.
15:50:05 <LindaG> Have to look it up
15:51:07 <GO GOGGLE> i am hading out, not sure if anyone else will take it
15:51:21 <LindaG> Says it changes based on the habitat. So someone lied to me. Lol
15:51:25 <Cooper> bye Graham
15:51:28 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Not sure if anyone can.
15:51:41 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Good Knight Graham.
15:51:41 <Betty> bye Graham

15:57:25 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> You killed it!
15:57:30 <Betty> :thumbsdown:
15:57:35 <LindaG> πŸ˜‹
15:58:10 <GO F&M/Cooper> haha Betty, Carrot
15:58:17 <GO F&M/Cooper> I mean GMK not Carrot
15:58:33 <LindaG> Well it's good it getting darker earlier do t have to deal with it as long
15:58:33 <GO F&M/Cooper> no Carrot, no Apple
15:58:42 <GO F&M/Cooper> I say Icecream....
15:58:42 <Betty> great mighty carrot
15:58:48 <GO F&M/Cooper> haha Betty
15:59:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> They won't even let me smell the wrapper on those.
15:59:30 <LindaG> Except for OF it's a down basin night
15:59:38 <GO F&M/Cooper> but do I coose Camel Iceream, Vanila Ice-Cream, or Stawberry Ice-Cream
15:59:38 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, πŸ™

16:00:14 <Betty> yummy
16:00:56 <GO F&M/Cooper> I mean, Caramel Ice Cream, Vanilla, or Strawberry, I do not think camel IC would be good
16:01:06 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I haven't had that for a long time.
16:02:29 <LindaG> Bulger
16:02:51 <GO F&M/Cooper> GMK, would this make you happy... Caramel Ice-Cream, with a side of Whipped Cream covered in Strawberries?
16:04:39 <GO F&M/Cooper> I bet they would not even let you smell that!
16:06:54 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> What I really miss is Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries.
16:07:13 <GO F&M/Cooper> you can not even have that?!
16:07:23 <GO F&M/Cooper> I had that this morning:p
16:07:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Nope. Way too many carbs.
16:07:54 <GO F&M/Cooper> That sucks!
16:08:07 <GO F&M/Cooper> It is delicious! *just rubbing it in*
16:08:30 <GO F&M/Cooper> and yum.... with the crunch and then that pop of sweetness followed by the coolness of the milk:p
16:08:52 <GO F&M/Cooper> *just rubbing it in here*:p
16:08:54 <GO F&M/Cooper> Poor Kevin
16:09:59 <LindaG> Dont pick on Kevin, some day you'll be there Ha!
16:10:16 <GO F&M/Cooper> Yes I will

16:11:20 <LindaG> πŸ˜‹
16:13:40 <GO F&M/Cooper> D0-G2Q
16:13:47 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> "Rice Krispie" treats made with crunchberries are awesome.
16:14:10 <GO F&M/Cooper> can you have any Rice Krispe's
16:14:42 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Not really. I can have some Cherrios though.
16:14:54 <GO F&M/Cooper> lame... but it is something
16:15:06 <CraigC2> stick with Grape Nuts, Kevin
16:15:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Yep. Like eating BBs.
16:16:03 <CraigC2> and it keeps you busy for 3 or 4 days
16:16:56 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> For sure.
16:17:25 <Betty> haha
16:17:59 <LindaG> Gets to the point thT younstart getting an eating g disorder because you just dont know what to eat
16:18:38 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Just buy something, throw it away and eat the box.
16:19:38 <CraigC2> LOL
16:19:42 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, they should make flavored cardboard
16:19:57 <CraigC2> dip the box in peanut butter
16:20:14 <LindaG> CraigC2, πŸ˜€
16:21:23 <LindaG> OF

16:26:04 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I do remember cinnamon flavored toothpicks.
16:27:30 <ynpvisitor75> Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚, yeah, think they still make them
16:29:23 <LindaGp> It's up. I'll leave on GH for a while I've got an hour to get it to down basin.
16:29:42 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Go Aurum
16:29:54 <LindaGp> πŸ‘
16:38:17 <LindaG> GO F&M/Cooper, what's happening out by you?any snow?
16:38:32 <GO F&M/Cooper> Hi Michael
16:39:02 <GO F&M/Cooper> nothing much yet... we got our first dusting a few nights ago... woke up at midnight to find a little bit of snow
16:39:09 <Michael> Hi Cooper.
16:39:15 <GO F&M/Cooper> and most nights are down below 30 new where I live tuched up in the MOuntains
16:39:32 <GO F&M/Cooper> now** not new
16:39:42 <GO F&M/Cooper> What about you Linda?
16:39:43 <LindaG> GO F&M/Cooper, do you like the snow?
16:39:50 <GO F&M/Cooper> I love the snow
16:40:21 <LindaG> High seventies today, maybe 85 monday
16:40:34 <GO F&M/Cooper> WOW
16:40:37 <GO F&M/Cooper> waht about lows?
16:41:00 <LindaG> GO F&M/Cooper, I like to watch it. I love the webcams in Jackson hole because I like to watch the snow
16:41:10 <GO F&M/Cooper> nice
16:41:16 <LindaG> Mabe high 50s at night
16:41:33 <GO F&M/Cooper> that is still pretty hot
16:41:59 <LindaG> Yes, probably wont see snow till November maybe
16:43:10 <LindaG> But then Kevin would have his coat on now
16:43:28 <GO F&M/Cooper> haha
16:46:43 <LindaG> Michael, hi
16:47:26 <Michael> Hi LindaG.
16:48:40 <Michael> I'm going to be in and out a lot this hour. Not sure what I have a chance to miss except maybe Artemisia.
16:49:18 <LindaG> That's optimistic
16:50:22 <LindaG> I'm going to move downbasin for daisy and the rest. And that's optimistic of me.
16:55:46 <LindaG> ants are moving
16:55:57 <LindaG> Were
17:30:43 <LindaGp> Whoohoo made it down basin
17:50:13 <LindaGp> IOF
17:50:26 <LindaGp> OF
18:04:29 <LindaG> Actually up
18:10:24 <GO F&M/Cooper> Aurum 1806
18:12:49 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Of course
18:14:46 <LindaG> Oh no πŸ™
18:20:20 <LindaG> OT
18:20:25 <GO F&M/Cooper> sorry GMK that you missed Aurun
18:21:12 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Watching grown men crash expensive cars now anyway for the most part.
18:24:51 <LindaGp> Oh boy I thought daisy was closer, could have had it on the hill oh well.
18:25:17 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> It would have been frozen anyway
18:25:33 <LindaGp> Probably
18:26:04 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> Big difference between GT and NPS predictions for Daisy.
18:26:21 <GO F&M/Cooper> YUM... Eating my 21 INCH Rainbow trout that I caught today on my Boat
18:26:30 <GO F&M/Cooper> filled and stuffed with lemon, garlic, and butter
18:26:39 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> That beats ice cream anyday.
18:29:39 <GO F&M/Cooper> that is does Kevin
18:30:12 <LindaGp> I'm having fried flounder but I didn't catch mine
18:30:19 <GO F&M/Cooper> I have some ice-cream left... so I can have it AGAIN here in a few minutes
18:30:28 <GO F&M/Cooper> You live on the coast right Linda?
18:30:41 <LindaGp> Yes
18:30:49 <GO F&M/Cooper> you ever try fishing?
18:31:00 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I could go for a chunk of Icelandic Cod right now.
18:31:21 <GO F&M/Cooper> that will ahve to do for now
18:31:37 <LindaGp> Yes used to go with my father
18:31:54 <GO F&M/Cooper> you should go again... I hear the fishing is pretty good there
18:32:03 <LindaGp> Really dont want to eat the fish in new jersey
18:32:19 <GO F&M/Cooper> hmmm....
18:32:33 <GO F&M/Cooper> you could get a boat, and head out to sea:p
18:32:43 <GO F&M/Cooper> sounds like a lot of work for a few meals
18:33:13 <LindaGp> Yeah shoprite is good
18:33:59 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I like the pan sized trout from mountain streams.
18:34:07 <LindaGp> Easy to go on fishing trip here though
18:34:09 <GO F&M/Cooper> they are good
18:34:56 <GO F&M/Cooper> my trout are from this nice sized lake, it is like 300 Acres in SA, and is like 65 feet deep at max
18:35:29 <GO F&M/Cooper> it is also used to get water for our city
18:35:59 <GO F&M/Cooper> so overall it is pretty good water quality, at least I think
18:36:17 <GO F&M/Cooper> Kevin, you ever fish anymore?
18:37:22 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I haven't for a long time. Never have taken a fish out of Lake Mead though. Something I want to do. Only thing I caught there is a 12oz Schlitz can.
18:38:12 <GO F&M/Cooper> haha
18:38:19 <GO F&M/Cooper> you should try again!
18:38:38 <GO F&M/Cooper> maybe go with a tour guide of something like that?
18:39:16 <GO F&M/Cooper> SB Note
18:39:27 <GO F&M/Cooper> no water or nothing yet
18:39:54 <GO F&M/Cooper> should get water sometime overnight(at least a little) and then go on like the 17th or 18th I hope
18:40:32 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I think that a scuba diver hooked the can and tugged my line. There was a pull on it and when I reeled it in you could tell something was on the line. Bunch of guys there came over to see what it was. One told me I had to throw it back. "Can't keep anything less than a 6 pack."
18:41:42 <GO F&M/Cooper> haha
18:41:55 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I have been in areas on Lake Mead where people are catching them right and left of me, but they don't like my line.
18:42:07 <GO F&M/Cooper> :p
18:42:09 <GO F&M/Cooper> they do that
18:42:46 <GO F&M/Cooper> what do you even catch down there?
18:43:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> I had a friend that caught a 37lb stripped bass there.
18:43:20 <LindaGp> Do ya think they turned the geysers off?
18:43:23 <GO F&M/Cooper> WOW
18:43:31 <GO F&M/Cooper> Haha Linda, the same with the cam
18:44:25 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> They also have catfish and a few smaller types.
18:44:41 <GO F&M/Cooper> :p
18:44:45 <GO F&M/Cooper> so not trout
18:44:47 <GO F&M/Cooper> blah
18:44:56 <GO F&M/Cooper> That means I hate it:p
18:45:07 <GO F&M/Cooper> oh that :p was meant to be a :thumbsup:
18:45:55 <GO F&M/Cooper> Arty
18:46:32 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸš‚> They had great trout until some genius from fish & game decided to plant the stripped bass too. Hello!? Small trout are the stripper's favorite food. :P
18:46:45 <LindaGp> Arty
18:46:49 <GO F&M/Cooper> that they are
18:46:58 <LindaGp> Michael wanted to see it
