04:59:19 <Kent> Joe, you driving?
05:00:55 <Kent> Moon coming up over the eastern mountains here. Have you tried looking for it?
05:06:21 <ynpvisitor17> F&M at 333 days
05:07:48 <Joe> Kent, Yes I'm Driving, I'll look
05:10:51 <Joe> I,m
05:11:15 <Joe> I'm too late it is too high now
06:10:49 <Cooper> SB Today
06:11:21 <Rice> Agree
06:11:46 <ynpvisitor23> it's possible
06:11:54 <ynpvisitor23> has been for the last 24 hours
06:14:53 <Cooper> having found my sheet just now, my finall one has it at 1421 today
06:15:02 <ynpvisitor23> LOL
06:15:13 <Cooper> what?
06:15:22 <Cooper> nis it my Linda speak?
06:15:57 <ynpvisitor23> you need to go sit for days and days over and over thru many of them to GET that it is about feeding in quarters until it is ready, then you pull the handle and wait for it to roll the cherries
06:16:42 <ynpvisitor23> anyone that has put in the time will tell you; it is NOT predictable
06:17:00 <Cooper> it IS PREDICTABLE!
06:17:10 <ynpvisitor23> ;)
06:17:17 <ynpvisitor23> uh huh
06:17:21 <Cooper> and I have put in the tie to tell get/analyze my info
06:17:53 <Cooper> and trust me....
06:18:09 <ynpvisitor17> it has been pretty predictable this year ... but that also means sometimes its outside a prediction window.
06:18:38 <Cooper> This will be my SIXTH Eruption, and out of the 5 I have predicted I have a 80% success ratio within 3 hours! 2 of which under 1 hour, 1 of which 1 minute!
06:18:51 <Cooper> you know you just contradicted yourself
06:18:58 <ynpvisitor17> you can tell its predictable because gazers wait a fw days before showing up, and then theres a day when some are there but not others, then the larger group shows up ...
06:19:15 <ynpvisitor17> that indicates some predictability
06:19:35 <Cooper> you said above "it is NOT predictable"
06:19:36 <ynpvisitor23> increased odds, not the same as predictable
06:19:59 <Cooper> 23, I can scientifically predict Steamboat Geyser
06:20:02 <Cooper> Craig**
06:20:05 <ynpvisitor17> that***actly what predictability is 23
06:20:08 <CraigC> ;)
06:20:24 <ynpvisitor17> haha ..... not supposed to remove that space
06:20:28 <Cooper> this is a useless argument that is going no where Craig:p
06:21:20 <Cooper> you say semi-predictable, I say predictable. you say you have to wait, I say that is beneficial but not crucial, I say 1421, you say at some point
06:21:28 <Cooper> so maybe we should stop this aurgument
06:21:30 <ynpvisitor17> people sometimes say "the rangers did a good job with that prediction" when OF erupts in the middle of its window - truth is they did a good prediction anyway because its based on statistics
06:21:47 <Cooper> my point exactly 17
06:22:36 <ynpvisitor17> we dont say Grand is unpredictable just because it throws in an 8h interval now and then
06:22:36 <Cooper> all my predictions are, carefully calculated, recalculated, have recorded times of when I predict it, and solely based on statistics
06:22:44 <CraigC> next summer, wait until 10 mins before your prediction window, leave 10 mins after, see how that works out
06:23:05 <Cooper> I would get 80% of the eruptions Craig
06:23:05 <ynpvisitor17> how big is the window?
06:23:34 <CraigC> probably like 24 hr each side
06:23:42 <ynpvisitor17> and the rules may change next year, so cant predict that far out
06:23:44 <CraigC> ;)
06:23:52 <Cooper> +/- 3 hours(technicaly), but to keep it safe +/- 5 Hours
06:24:00 <CraigC> safe
06:24:09 <Cooper> yes "safe"
06:24:22 <Cooper> so that I give SB a bit of buffer to it if it is having a bad day
06:24:37 <CraigC> a geyser has a "bad day"?
06:24:52 <Cooper> I think you know what I mean Craig
06:25:19 <CraigC> I can predict it perfectly except for the times when it does something differently
06:25:27 <Cooper> haha
06:26:11 <Cooper> I can predicts it with high amounts of accuracy. reliable enough that me AND Lori(SB Research Partner) reliably trust our window
06:26:16 <CraigC> I agree with you one this one, getting you to see this beast from the perspective of those that go there and spend time, is useless
06:27:03 <Cooper> it is, especially since we have those 2 peeps in Norros that leave all the notes for us
06:27:23 <CraigC> and they agree with you?
06:28:07 <Cooper> they think that being in Norris is better(I have to agree) but I almost guarantee that they would say it is not crucial to predict SB
06:28:22 <Cooper> Craig, how about we stop this Aurgument and change the subject?
06:28:33 <Cooper> oh Look.... Arty possibly ie
06:28:40 <Cooper> Daisy
06:28:56 <Cooper> maybe Daisy
06:32:54 <CraigC> cooper, how many times have I asked you not to PM me
06:33:18 <Cooper> Craig, I was trying to ask you an honest question
06:33:26 <Cooper> I do not know where the whole problem is with that
06:33:28 <CraigC> regardless
06:33:35 <CraigC> 4, 5?
06:33:46 <Cooper> 4,5? ?
06:33:57 <CraigC> how many times?
06:36:29 <ynpvisitor100> lion
06:40:39 <Joe> Grand
07:06:00 <CraigC> wow, nice colors
07:06:10 <CraigC> bulger ie
07:06:45 <Joe> Yes, Hi CraigC
07:06:55 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
07:07:17 <Joe> Good, how is the back??
07:07:21 <CraigC> maybe turban?
07:07:31 <CraigC> back is improving, thanks
07:07:37 <Joe> think so
07:07:49 <Joe> on turban
07:08:48 <Joe> waiting on Daisy then will switch to GH
07:08:56 <CraigC> hope I am better enough to take my full trailer to the dump tomorrow, I have a yard covered in willow tree branches that I cut down Saturday
07:09:47 <Joe> I hope you improve enough to do that
07:10:03 <CraigC> OT
07:10:24 <Joe> yep
07:10:53 <Joe> your catching them all this morning:)
07:35:20 <Nickel AGAIN?> When Fluffy's done take a look at Electric Peak cam right now (sunrise on the mountain)
07:35:56 <CraigC> nice
07:36:27 <Joe> very nice thanks
07:57:03 <ynpvisitor60> :lion:
07:57:46 <CraigC2> is Dave doing presets?
07:57:59 <CraigC2> AL
07:58:28 <Joe> yes he just finished
07:58:42 <CraigC2> this is a much better one for GH
07:59:53 <Joe> yes, you do not have to zoom out now!
08:00:01 <CraigC2> :thumbsup:
08:00:39 <Joe> He also did a dome-LS and a better night view
08:01:09 <CraigC2> awesome
08:01:23 <ynpvisitor13> what is LS
08:01:25 <Joe> here is Dome
08:01:31 <CraigC2> Little Squirt
08:01:38 <ynpvisitor13> thanks
08:01:39 <Joe> little squirt
08:02:03 <Joe> here is night
08:02:17 <CraigC2> nice
08:02:24 <CraigC2> bison ie
08:02:40 <CraigC2> I bet it is same bison that I tracked thru the parking lot
08:03:06 <CraigC2> yep, brown, horns, same one
08:03:11 <CraigC2> ;)
08:03:39 <Joe> thats the one:)
08:06:08 <CraigC2> when I was still in the park, my g/f and I spend a few hours in the lot at lower hams, enjoying the spectacle of 3 rangers keeping tourists away from a bison there..... so surprised me that not even one was deployed on Satruday
08:07:45 <CraigC2> various times people that apparently were not English speaking, walked right past the ranger and the big orange cone, as though they were entitled to go wherever they wanted
08:08:18 <CraigC2> and the ranger would verbalize things, then resort to hand gestures
08:08:43 <CraigC2> then rinse and repeat, for hours
08:11:06 <CraigC2> it's frustrating(yet comical) to watch, can't imagine how frustrating it is for the rangers trying to do their jobs
08:11:48 <Joe> I'll bet they get very frustrated.
08:15:36 <ynpvisitor17> elk on Mammoth cam
08:29:11 <ynpvisitor75> please don't get stuck, please don't get stuck...
08:29:35 <Nickel AGAIN?> Good wood
08:30:15 <Cooper> Hi Jimbo
08:30:21 <Nickel AGAIN?> Hi Cooper
08:30:34 <Cooper> Hi Katie
08:30:39 <Joe> Yes 75, I have been stuck looking at the roof before :)
08:30:50 <Katie (in&out)> g'mornin,' Cooper
08:31:08 <Nickel AGAIN?> NASA had a problem with Cassini (Saturn probe), I think - when the camera was at the far end of the range of motion, it got stuck, so luckily they unstuck it, and didn't do that again!
08:33:58 <Nickel AGAIN?> Elk are lined up and well-spaced!
08:34:32 <Nickel AGAIN?> Well, they were - more showed up
08:36:02 <Cooper> Why are doctors always so slow with Lab results, they said 1 hour, it has been 1 hour
08:36:05 <Cooper> Hi Mike
08:36:15 <Mike J> Morning Cooper
08:36:53 <CraigC2> 3rd world problems
08:37:20 <CraigC2> polio, dying of diarrhea, and lab results ;)
08:37:29 <Cooper> haha
08:37:44 <Cooper> wouldn't you mean 1st world problems? or is US not 1st World?
08:37:59 <Katie (in&out)> Not when it comes to medicine
08:38:00 <Kevin L™🌵> The bills are killing me
08:38:06 <CraigC2> I hope Bill and Melinda Gates get on that right after they get their nuclear plants back on schedule with China
08:38:09 <Cooper> oh, now I get it
08:38:14 <Cooper> That is no good Kevin
08:39:39 <CraigC2> is that a bison above anemones?
08:39:50 <Cooper> maybe
08:39:53 <Katie (in&out)> Yup. It's been moving west
08:40:04 <CraigC2> young man?
08:40:16 <Katie (in&out)> Reliving his yough
08:40:21 <Katie (in&out)> *youth
08:40:37 <Cooper> I hope he knows where to walk, boiled bison
08:41:32 <Kevin L™🌵> There have been a few up there.
08:42:08 <CraigC2> pump
08:42:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember when an elk fell into Spa Geyser. Smelled like soup for days.
08:42:32 <Nickel AGAIN?> I wonder what behooves a bison to go there.
08:42:41 <Katie (in&out)> No pooping in the basin!
08:42:52 <Cooper> haha Katie
08:43:01 <CraigC2> behooves... nice word for a bison
08:43:41 <Nickel AGAIN?> I think he just answered my question, too
08:43:43 <CraigC2> a crass person might reply "horny?'
08:43:44 <Katie (in&out)> Yo, Buffy! Geysers are not bidets!
08:44:45 <Nickel AGAIN?> Shoulda done that in Giantess - maybe that would wake the girl up
08:45:19 <Cooper> is it just me or is the cam stuttering a lot?
08:45:59 <Katie (in&out)> It's looking good here. Can't expect an HD TV frame rate with < 1.5Mbps bandwidth.
08:47:23 <Cooper> nice Improbable burst
08:53:10 <Cooper> I have got to go... someone just dropped 4 pounds of glass.
09:03:04 <Joe> Hi Kat
09:03:40 <Kat> Hi all - thanks Joe - stuck forever in traffic accident in Orlando!
09:04:02 <Joe> no problem
09:05:14 <Kat> :) Thank you!
09:05:32 <Joe> Hope you made the airport ok, and were not part of the accident
09:06:22 <Kat> Made it OK, accident on the way back to Cocoa, not me thankfully!
09:06:38 <Joe> Good!!
09:06:48 <Kat> :) Amen!
09:07:43 <Joe> DaveK put in a Dome preset and fixed the night view
09:09:56 <Kat> I saw his e-mail. I had asked him about Dome, Little Squirt and Depression. Glad we found a way to do some of that.
09:10:19 <Kat> I hope the night views are better too
09:15:23 <Kat> Too close
09:17:12 <Kat> cant say what I want to...
09:19:01 <Joe> night BH to grand is better and castle to lion is better
09:19:18 <Kat> Good!
09:29:00 <Kat> Grotto?
09:30:07 <Kat> Bulger ie
09:34:50 <Kat> OT
09:36:30 <Kat> Sprinkler
09:39:55 <Betty> morning all
09:42:00 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:42:15 <Eric> and good morning to all
09:42:19 <Betty> hi Eric
09:42:30 <Kat> Hi all!
09:42:34 <Eric> BH looks ready
09:42:39 <Betty> hi Kat
09:42:46 <Eric> Hi Kat
09:43:19 <Kat> :)
09:43:21 <CraigC2> hey Betty
09:43:24 <CraigC2> hey Eric
09:43:30 <Eric> Hi Craig
09:43:45 <Eric> CraigCo2
09:43:47 <CraigC> hey Kat
09:43:50 <Kat> Getting there - Kevin will get it! :)
09:43:52 <Betty> hey CraigC
09:43:57 <Eric> Mr. Carbon Dioxide!
09:43:57 <Kat> Hi Craig!
09:44:22 <Betty> lol
09:44:45 <Betty> Aurum looked pretty good too
09:45:07 <CraigC> yeah, I am bad for the climate change
09:45:09 <Kat> Looking like a nice morning in the basin
09:47:29 <Betty> I was fascinated by the heat when Artemisia erupted. I had not expected it would get that hot
09:47:44 <CraigC> same
09:47:56 <CraigC> but we were right above it
09:47:58 <ynpvisitor17> down to 48 SB eruptions in the last 12 months
09:48:23 <Betty> yes, but I had that with no geyser before
09:49:15 <CraigC> is Sb erupting right now?
09:49:19 <Eric> Yes, that pool gets pretty warm when it erupts
09:49:35 <ynpvisitor17> SB can get you pretty hot too
09:49:37 <Eric> It could be Craig...but I don't see it on the seismo
09:50:04 <ynpvisitor100> 48 but someone has "accurately Predicted" 4 of them
09:50:16 <CraigC> remember the seisom signature that time Graham was tryhing to convince everyone
09:50:51 <Eric> What does "accuractely predict" mean when it comes to SB? How large of a window?
09:51:19 <Eric> I can accurately predict steamboat if I have a 7 day window :-P
09:51:21 <CraigC> careful, I upset that person this morning when I questioned that
09:51:41 <ynpvisitor100> sarcasm. see chat log earlier today
09:51:59 <Eric> ohhh, :-P
09:52:24 <Eric> meeting in 8 minutes...look for BH then
09:52:28 <CraigC> it's like predicting blackjack because you have a great hand
09:52:31 <Eric> and aurum dual
09:52:33 <ynpvisitor17> given its history, a 7 day window isnt bad :)
09:52:51 <Eric> well, SB is in series :-P
09:52:52 <Kat> :)
09:53:05 <Eric> You guys didn't know it's a series geyser...did ya?
09:53:08 <CraigC> odds may be better, but it is still gambling
09:53:12 <Teri> gm all; looks like William was at Norris last night; he posted Corporal at 1823; no SB updates this am (?)
09:53:19 <Eric> Hi Terri
09:53:22 <Eric> Teri
09:53:36 <ynpvisitor100> Typical
09:53:37 <Teri> gm Eric
09:53:39 <Eric> I assumed it would go overnight last night
09:53:55 <Teri> it's due
09:53:57 <Eric> as always...we all know what words are in ass u me
09:53:59 <ynpvisitor17> i expect they are not leaving SB to post until later today
09:54:19 <CraigC> I had vivid dreams last night about being there and starting to leave and it erupted, so we stayed LOL
09:54:53 <Teri> you have to add in freezing rain this time of year; then it might be parking lot time, lol
09:54:55 <Kat> Craig - you should be there!
09:55:21 <CraigC> booked a room for Oct 17th to 20th
09:55:25 <Kat> I need more pics!
09:55:34 <Kat> :)
09:55:52 <Joe> If I leave home now, SB will erupt when I'm at Fishing Bridge :) so 3 hours ish :):)
09:56:12 <Kat> Haha Joe - go for it!
09:56:14 <CraigC> I don't dare take the trailer up there in the lower temps, I need to see how pipes do this winter at my house
09:56:47 <ynpvisitor17> so a 4 day prediction windw, 3+ weeks out? I like it
09:57:07 <Joe> Kat, I wish I could :)
09:57:14 <CraigC> ynpvisitor17, LOL... I doubt we will even go to Norris, I am taking my g/f and daughter
09:57:45 <Kat> Me too Joe
09:58:17 <Kat> Yes you will Craig!
09:59:42 <Betty> hey CraigC, Maureen told me about the blue bubble pic of GF. Can you post a link?
09:59:54 <LindaG> Hellonall
09:59:58 <CraigC> Betty, are you on FB?
10:00:03 <Betty> no
10:00:07 <Kat> Hi LInda!
10:00:08 <LindaG> Lol cant even type that
10:00:09 <CraigC> hang on
10:00:15 <Kat> hahaha
10:00:17 <LindaG> Kat, hi
10:00:52 <LindaG> Let's go steamboat
10:00:53 <Kevin L™🌵> BH has a lot of customers.
10:00:56 <Teri> I wish I was within a day's drive; 800 miles via I-90; 920 the route I go with stops at the relatives enroute
10:01:07 <Kat> Tour I think
10:01:09 <CraigC> Betty,
10:01:11 <Teri> ranger tour (?)
10:01:23 <LindaG> It would help if I hit play on stream
10:01:40 <Betty> WOW!
10:02:01 <Kat> Wow is right! Can I save it?
10:02:06 <Betty> and I saw this one live...thanks a lot for sharing
10:02:08 <CraigC> sure
10:02:10 <LindaG> Nice!
10:02:16 <Kat> :)
10:02:30 <Kat> Thanks Craig
10:02:37 <CraigC> some lady got a better one a few days later that was showing Maureen, but I forget who it was
10:02:56 <LindaG> All those peeps at bee
10:03:18 <LindaG> A tour I guess
10:03:22 <Kat> All those tourists walking away :)
10:05:10 <Teri> Kat - right click and you should be able to "save image as" (Windows)
10:06:23 <Betty> hi Teri and LindaG and Kevin L™🌵, btw
10:06:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty
10:06:56 <Kat> Got it Teri
10:07:03 <Kat> Hey Kevin
10:07:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I take it Pioneer is still there.
10:07:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Kat
10:07:38 <Betty> yep, heard nothing else
10:08:33 <LindaG> Betty, hi
10:09:16 <Betty> Eric is gone, now we can have BH, Lion and Aurum :-D
10:09:46 <Kat> :) Yes!
10:10:32 <CraigC> Lion roared in affirmation
10:10:49 <Cooper> Hi Linda, Kat, Betty, Craig, GMK, and All
10:11:24 <Kat> :) CraigC,
10:11:53 <Cooper> Happy Possible Steamboat Day
10:12:18 <Kat> Lion is ready!
10:12:56 <Betty> hi Cooper
10:13:06 <Betty> Depression ie
10:13:16 <Cooper> .
10:13:16 <Cooper> .
10:14:13 <CraigC> nice
10:14:15 <Cooper> nice bursts
10:14:34 <CraigC> someone there that appreciates it
10:14:40 <Betty> I missed it this year
10:14:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Good catch Betty
10:14:48 <Betty> thx
10:14:48 <LindaG> Nice depression, must have been the preset 😀
10:15:12 <Kat> :)
10:15:47 <Betty> I don´t dare to make it public... but I missed Daisy and Riverside too this year :-(
10:15:59 <Cooper> you missed both!?
10:16:52 <Betty> yep, nearly impossible but almost 10 days in the park :-p
10:17:09 <Cooper> WOW! That is not fun
10:17:11 <Betty> I mean, nearby
10:17:34 <Betty> sure I saw both from afar, but not nearby
10:17:38 <Kevin L™🌵> I would trade Daisy and Riverside for a Steamboat.
10:17:46 <ynpvisitor65> Didn’t you just make it public!!??
10:17:46 <CraigC> I missed lots of Old Faithfuls this summer......
10:17:56 <Betty> oh, wait... I did!
10:17:58 <Cooper> I think anyone would GMK
10:18:33 <Betty> At least I saw 1 OF from the main bw
10:18:43 <Betty> on a bench!
10:18:53 <Betty> with icecream
10:19:00 <Cooper> yummy
10:19:01 <CraigC> I caught one, cuz my mom wanted to
10:19:19 <CraigC> sat on the porch at the Lodge
10:19:26 <Betty> OF is a great geyser
10:19:28 <Cooper> what is your favorite flavor of icecream? and do they have icecream in Germany?
10:19:40 <Betty> ?????????????????
10:19:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Most of my OF eruptions are from GH.
10:19:59 <Cooper> so they have icecream in Germany
10:20:06 <Cooper> but what is your favorite flavpr?
10:20:08 <Betty> sure!
10:20:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Cooper, the worst ice cream in Germany is better than the best Ice cream here.
10:20:33 <Betty> hazelnut and blueberry
10:20:34 <Cooper> oh
10:20:44 <Cooper> thanks GMK
10:20:47 <Cooper> nice Betty
10:21:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I loved the banana at the Hessencenter.
10:21:11 <Betty> and spaghetti icecream
10:21:24 <Betty> banana is great too
10:21:25 <Cooper> spaghetti icecream?!?!?!
10:21:33 <Betty> and apricot
10:21:38 <Cooper> bannana icecream?!?!?!
10:21:43 <Cooper> I guess I need to get me some real icecream
10:21:44 <CraigC> what about Great Value Mocha Mudslide ice cream? what is better than THAT?????
10:21:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Spaghetti ice cream is awesome!
10:22:05 <Betty>
10:22:46 <Teri> hey Betty!; in and out, but I leave the dashboard on my monitor; YNM seismo on watch
10:23:22 <Cooper> c'mon Lion
10:23:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a spaghetti ice cream maker but my daughter stole it and uses it for treats at the bad girls school she works at.
10:23:40 <Betty> I think it fools us and decides to go tomorrow or thursday
10:23:51 <CraigC> "bad girls".... isn't that redundant?
10:23:52 <Cooper> it is SB, I would not be suprised
10:24:06 <Teri> pushing 3 days of water at the platform, SB new temp gauge is great
10:24:14 <Cooper> Lori's Double Secret Noodle has it at 1944, my Predict has it at 1431
10:24:16 <Betty> hahaha, craig
10:24:52 <Cooper> I need a name for my new method I discovered last night? any ideas
10:25:12 <Cooper> I am debating over Pool Noodle, Lazy River Float, or The Widow Maker Raft
10:25:26 <Betty> crystal ball?
10:25:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Craig, this is one of those schools for girls that their parents can't control. Believe me, my daughter has gotten a great education there as an instructor.
10:26:03 <Cooper> too easy
10:26:14 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, is it in Utah?
10:26:56 <Cooper> The Widow Maker Raft is the name of my new method
10:27:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes. Cedar City. Sort of funny, my Dad's cousin made the place as a family retreat and when he died it was sold and the school bought it.
10:28:18 <CraigC> I hope it works out well for her.... some of those private contract outfits don't take very good care of their workers
10:28:48 <CraigC> understaff shifts, have them transport kids unsafely
10:29:21 <Kevin L™🌵> She has been there about 8 years now. They seem to do a great job.
10:29:23 <Katie (in&out)> My sister works in such a home, too.
10:30:09 <CraigC> I had kids placed down in Cedar a lot, there was a home for boys that did a good job
10:30:14 <Eric> Cooper, your prediction yesterday was middle of the night
10:30:24 <Eric> You can't keep changing your predictions :-P
10:30:27 <Cooper> that was for Cistern Based methods
10:30:57 <Cooper> I have 2 "methods" Cistern Spring Methods, and Other Methods, + Lori has her Double Secret Noodle
10:31:00 <CraigC> PM him, Cooper, set himn right
10:31:09 <Eric> haha
10:31:12 <Kevin L™🌵> They assign the kids to take care of a farm animal when they get there. A rude awaking for those spoiled city girls.
10:31:17 <Eric> I don't even want to know :-P
10:31:23 <ynpvisitor117> make many predictions one will be close to right :)
10:31:26 <CraigC> LOL
10:31:41 <Cooper> CSM put it at last night. OM puts it a bit later this afternoon, and Lori's is late this evening
10:32:00 <Cooper> what I want....
10:32:05 <CraigC> Kevin, sounds like a program that was also in Mt Pleasant, trying to remember the name
10:32:07 <Cooper> is to have enough time....
10:32:27 <Katie (in&out)> My sister works for a private company, which has a school of their own. Some of the kids go to the company school, but those that are better adapted to life go to public school.
10:32:43 <Betty> OF ie
10:32:46 <Cooper> to put in 1 equation, that accounts partial for every prediction method, using a weight based system of accuracy, so I get ONE nice answer
10:32:52 <Betty> early
10:33:03 <Betty> prediction failed
10:33:16 <CraigC> whoa
10:33:30 <Eric> I assumed it would go prediction from me, just WAG :-D
10:33:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Speaking of failed prediction...
10:33:45 <CraigC> I don't think drivers should have to put the cam on OF if it misbehaves
10:34:02 <Betty> Eric, overnight would have been too late for OF too ;-)
10:34:09 <Eric> I would have been there overnight with William
10:34:12 <CraigC> maybe the bison affected the surface tension
10:34:18 <Cooper> I should do that tonight... I do not think I have anything going on from 5 to 7 PM, sound like a good time to lock myself in a room, and figure that equation out
10:34:53 <Eric> Do some matrix, regression, time-series super math!
10:35:00 <Betty> any news from Dave´s virgin tour?
10:35:18 <CraigC> Betty, his wife posted a pic yesterday
10:35:18 <Eric> Dave is doing a virgin tour....I missed that invitation :-D
10:35:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't heard from the Skipper.
10:35:25 <CraigC> OMH
10:35:34 <Eric> Wow...and his wife is posting pics?????
10:35:43 <Betty> hahahahahahahahahaha
10:35:49 <CraigC> Skipper??? Dave isn't Gilligan?
10:36:00 <Eric> You sure Craig?
10:36:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Maynard
10:36:13 <CraigC> a 3 day tour....
10:36:42 <CraigC> I'm not old enough for the Maynard reference
10:36:49 <Betty> I avoided to call it virgin ride, but you??!!?? lol
10:37:12 <Betty> People off bw
10:37:35 <CraigC> that is asphault, though
10:37:38 <Betty> they need a fence there
10:37:47 <Betty> no glavel
10:38:02 <Betty> asphalt is out of sight
10:38:05 <CraigC> is it, I can't remember, bu tpeople always shortcut across there
10:38:19 <Betty> I know
10:38:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Used to be the Loop Road.
10:38:45 <Betty> one is in the red
10:38:58 <Betty> taking silly pics
10:39:18 <Kevin L™🌵> You would have to know who Maynard is to remember that though.
10:39:20 <CraigC> too bad the cam doesn't have a blowhorn and a laser pointer
10:39:30 <Eric> laser gun!
10:39:33 <Katie (in&out)> And a paint gun
10:39:36 <Betty> ohhh, good idea!
10:39:46 <Eric> and tactical nuclear weapons!
10:39:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Tannerite?
10:39:57 <Betty> water bombs
10:39:58 <Katie (in&out)> NO tannerite!
10:40:01 <CraigC> grow up you guys
10:40:04 <CraigC> ;)
10:40:08 <Eric> hahahaha
10:40:17 <LindaG> CraigC, we could send an email and suggest that. 😀
10:40:41 <CraigC> I would get fired pretty quickly
10:40:44 <Eric> ok...a really long extender with a feather so we can tickle people until they stop mis-behaving!
10:40:57 <Betty> bear spray would work too
10:41:11 <Eric> Super soaker bear spray!
10:41:30 <Katie (in&out)> c'mon, Craig. Environmentally sound, plant-based dye, water soluble paint guns would temporarily mark them as offenders in a safe and eco-friendly way!
10:41:45 <Eric> What fun is that?
10:41:51 <CraigC> LOL
10:41:54 <Kevin L™🌵> If you want to have fun send a letter with something ludicrous like that to a politician who is running for reelection and see how they respond.
10:42:06 <Eric> bad idea kevin
10:42:09 <Katie (in&out)> Well, less fun than permanently marking them, but someone would miss and there would be collateral damage
10:42:34 <Katie (in&out)> The g word isn't safe to put in print. I screwed up.
10:42:36 <Eric> a water balloon catapult would be more fun :-D
10:43:01 <CraigC> or a soap slingshot
10:43:05 <Eric> catapult doesn't trigger anyone...I think
10:43:06 <Katie (in&out)> I'm game with water balloon trebuchet, but paint would still be more fun
10:43:15 <Betty> yes, as I said: water bombs
10:43:22 <Eric> trebuchet or slingshot would work too
10:43:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Perhaps this could be a use for that excess bison poo.
10:44:09 <Betty> haha, Kevin
10:44:10 <Eric> now your cooking with oil Kevin
10:44:19 <Eric> Bison poo barage
10:44:42 <Eric> with a note stuck in it that says, "Get back on the boardwalk!"
10:44:59 <Eric> Like a fortune cookie
10:45:11 <CraigC> edible?
10:45:37 <Katie (in&out)> I won't stop them from eating bison dung
10:45:40 <Betty> "you just got a fortune bison scat!
10:45:44 <Lori S> Well, that's an interesting thread ^^^^^^
10:45:56 <Lori S> Morning all
10:45:56 <CraigC> Lori S, I asked them to grow up
10:46:05 <Betty> hi Lori S
10:46:06 <Katie (in&out)> Welcome, Lori. See what people off the bw lead us to...
10:46:19 <Eric> Hi Lori
10:46:24 <ynpvisitor11> Water balloons would not work, lots of little pieces of balloons left all over the place.
10:46:27 <Lori S> Ah, well that explains it. I didn't read up that far
10:46:34 <Katie (in&out)> Yeah, well done egging us on, Craig. ;)
10:46:35 <Eric> Good call 11
10:47:06 <Eric> The bison poo sounds the most environmentally friendly.
10:47:21 <Lori S> Hello Betty, Katie, Eric, Craig
10:47:33 <Katie (in&out)> Indeed. Fresh stinks and stale stings
10:47:52 <ynpvisitor11> Ice bullets, leave them for the wolves and bears. One skeleton out there would get people thinking.
10:47:54 <Lori S> Was this a recent off boardwalk today or a general discussion?
10:47:56 <Betty> biologically degradeable
10:48:17 <Katie (in&out)> They were off bw, but just off the west edge of the OF bw
10:48:19 <Betty> just the edge of OF bw
10:48:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I think this is the result of months of a bad cam.
10:48:38 <Eric> The same place everyone cuts across that gravels section near OF
10:48:53 <Eric> I assume if the NPS cared, they would put better barriers there
10:48:57 <CraigC> whack them, and double secret probation
10:49:11 <ynpvisitor11> I thought we would be safe for at least 6 months after the big news story this month.
10:49:26 <Lori S> ynpvisitor11, funny not funny
10:49:34 <Eric> I don't know if technically it's considered off BW
10:49:42 <Eric> any more than the gravel behind the BW
10:49:44 <Lori S> near the runoff?
10:49:49 <Eric> same gravel
10:50:00 <Eric> yep, in front of those runoff channels
10:50:22 <ynpvisitor11> Are you talking the place they all stand when the walk is full?
10:50:29 <Lori S> No respect. were they wearing, ahem, red hats?
10:50:30 <Eric> So is standing on the gravel between the pavement loop and the BW being "off BW"?
10:50:40 <Eric> Yep[
10:53:06 <ynpvisitor11> If that place was of concern, they would put a sign, or someone there to stop it. I thought maybe someone was setting on the hive or other obvious off walk occurrence.
10:53:24 <ynpvisitor11> I retract my ice bullet suggestion.
10:55:26 <Lori S>
10:56:06 <Cooper> and back
10:56:21 <Cooper> found out how I want to weigh my methods
10:56:46 <Cooper> Hi Ms. Lori
10:57:15 <Joe> Near the OF sign NPS sets up tables and has junior ranger programs (off boardwalk) :0:)
10:57:18 <Lori S> Hi Mr Cooper
10:57:41 <ynpvisitor11> Ok, a nice log rail. People can get there pictures taken next to it.
10:58:14 <Cooper> Craig, what are you anticipating
10:59:25 <CraigC> pay no mind to the fat man behind the curtain
11:00:04 <Joe> is that the WOO :)
11:00:39 <Lori S> Another good one:
11:01:48 <Eric> ok...well, had meeting and still no BH, must be dormant
11:02:14 <Betty> you broke it
11:02:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Lori, I have a picture of a sign that says "Road Construction Next 106 Miles". And it wasn't a joke!
11:02:37 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, eek
11:04:04 <Kevin L™🌵> We also have one on US 6 as you leave Tonopah that says "Next Gas 168 Miles".
11:05:36 <Cooper> bbl
11:05:59 <Lori S> I've seen those along the Alcan. Only sometimes in the winter, the gas they refer to is closed when you get there.
11:06:27 <Eric> I have been gone, and Dave is Gone, Kevin must have broken it!
11:06:31 <Lori S> Bye Mr C
11:09:12 <Betty> can we check Castle, please?
11:11:10 <Lori S> Yes, coiuld we?
11:11:56 <Betty> thx
11:22:25 <LindaG> Puerto Rico had a 6.0 earthquake
11:22:58 <CraigC> hope they have enough paper towels
11:23:16 <LindaG> Guess it was yesterday
11:23:27 <ynpvisitor40> I hope it was offshore and not much inland damage
11:24:26 <ynpvisitor40> it missed all the news feeds so hopefully offshore
11:25:07 <Lori S> CraigC, :thumbsup:
11:25:23 <LindaG> 49 miles off NW shore, sounds like it just rattled them
11:25:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Did $8.41 in damage.
11:29:40 <Joe> good one Kevin
11:30:11 <Joe> bye appointments to keep
11:30:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck Joe.
11:31:10 <Lori S> Bye Joe
11:33:03 <LindaG> Looks like maybe snow by the end of the week
11:36:17 <The Long Z> No longer nickel
11:52:37 <Eric> looks like steamboat really tried to erupt yesterday at noon....but then ran out of steam
11:54:52 <Teri> temp graph shows a spike around midday
11:55:05 <Teri> might be due to the strong minors
11:55:37 <Cooper> my eyes are peeled
11:55:41 <Cooper> on the seismo that is
11:55:56 <CraigC> that logger is cool
11:56:14 <Teri> looks like we're into 6-8 day intervals; that 13+ day slowed things down
11:56:30 <Cooper> yes
11:56:37 <Cooper> please no more disturbances
11:57:11 <Teri> happens every year
11:57:27 <Cooper> I mean the remainder of this cycle
11:57:57 <Casey> I hate to see that high temperature spike with no eruption. I know that feeling all too well.
11:58:07 <CraigC> don't discount that the false start a couple of eruptions ago could have become a major, nor that yesterday's spike could have also been a possible start
11:58:40 <CraigC> cherries can roll during any of those periods
11:59:06 <Lori S> Setting you all up for a Bee Castle to lunch.
11:59:41 <Lori S> Or at least a Bee Grand OF
12:00:15 <Casey> I'm not going to bother speculating about what it means for when the next eruption will occur, but the build up of excitement with one of those false starts only to have it go unrewarded is tough.
12:01:29 <CraigC> I want to see SB go really early on after water in the system, just to keep speculators from getting the notion they are on to something with this monster
12:02:04 <CraigC> Casey, yeah, I keep second guessing my choice to leave the day I did after that
12:02:24 <Betty> OF window
12:02:40 <Casey> I'm with you though, CraigC. We are foolish to think we know anything about that monster.
12:05:05 <CraigC> for a while I thought bbev was just screwing with me when he said that people should ask those who have never seen it erupt to answer questions, because they know more than those who have...... but after each eruption I made it to, I understood what he meant.... you learn that you don't know much
12:06:14 <CraigC> nothing was similar in any of the 5 I saw
12:08:21 <Casey> That's why you have to go back and see 5 more
12:09:31 <CraigC> if it is active next summer, I want to try for every one from June to Sept
12:10:00 <CraigC> castle
12:10:34 <Casey> If so, I'll see you some time during that stretch.
12:10:41 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:11:08 <CraigC> I'll have gear better organized to be down on the platform all night
12:11:22 <ynpvisitor82> Nice crowd for Fluff
12:11:42 <Betty> nice CraigC :-)
12:11:54 <CraigC> OF static
12:12:02 <Casey> We are in the OF window. Have the guidelines been relaxed? Controls down?
12:12:35 <Betty> Kevin asleep?
12:12:41 <CraigC> sometimes cam drivers have to step away
12:12:54 <Casey> I'll accept that answer
12:15:02 <CraigC> Betty, do you want to enter Castle, also?
12:15:30 <Betty> If you want me to
12:15:36 <CraigC> 1209 ie
12:16:18 <Betty> done
12:16:29 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:16:58 <CraigC> my current stance is I only enter WC during my shifts, and just the ones needed for predictions
12:17:12 <CraigC> 2 bison
12:17:55 <Casey> Let me know when Splendid erupts and I'll enter it for you
12:18:28 <CraigC> not sure I would even know that it was Splendid, I have never seen it
12:19:06 <CraigC> would it be between Castle and Daisy?
12:20:00 <Betty> yes
12:20:11 <Casey> Yeah. Just left of daisy. Should look very much like a Grand eruption (from what I've been told). Never been seen from webcam though.
12:20:34 <Betty> noone has I think, Casey
12:20:39 <CraigC> speaking of grand
12:20:40 <Casey> Speaking of Grand
12:20:44 <CraigC> hahahahaa
12:20:44 <Casey> exactly
12:20:52 <Casey> Yeah. '97 was the last eruption, right?
12:20:58 <Betty> hey, early
12:21:12 <Betty> I don´t know
12:21:29 <CraigC> is Kevin on cam this morning?
12:21:43 <CraigC> I wonder if I should grab it for him
12:23:11 <ynpvisitor82> We're sorta OK until the next Fluffy?
12:23:48 <CraigC> yeah, this is a cool view, 2 nice geysers and 2 bison
12:24:40 <ynpvisitor82> I really would love a more punctual coyote :(
12:25:01 <The Long Z> Ooh, geysers!
12:33:46 <Eric> nice castle
12:37:02 <Eric> Would be nice to have an eyeball on BH every once in a while
12:37:46 <CraigC> I can sign on and check it, hope no one gets upset
12:37:51 <ynpvisitor62> it looks like the indy may be going from here inside the vc
12:38:18 <Betty> yes, BHI ie
12:38:31 <Betty> William is out there
12:38:32 <CraigC> nope, it is locked
12:39:10 <Eric> Thanks 62 and William
12:39:14 <Cooper> meant I was back
12:39:18 <Cooper> oh nice
12:39:19 <Cooper> BHI
12:39:19 <Eric> It is ie VEC
12:39:35 <Betty> yeah
12:39:45 <Eric> thanks for grabbing control Craig
12:39:48 <The Long Z> Busy time
12:39:50 <CraigC> I didnt
12:39:55 <Betty> you just woke up, Kevin?
12:39:58 <Eric> ohh
12:40:11 <Eric> Thanks camop
12:40:15 <Eric> whoever you might be
12:40:30 <Eric> You must be on Dave's virgin tour!
12:41:03 <CraigC> tourists; "yeah, we have to walk out around this little squirting thing to get back for Old Faithful"
12:41:10 <Eric> I hope his new bus is treating him well.
12:41:17 <Eric> haha
12:41:30 <Cooper> haha Craig, I would be ROFL but that would be odd in school
12:41:38 <Betty> that´s normal behaviour
12:41:46 <Eric> It does that
12:41:56 <ynpvisitor17> it is good to see that the temp logger data shows the activity that Tara logged in her note yesterday, also consistent with prior observations that can be correlated with the logger data. Its not bogus to read the data and get some indication of the activity seen by obervers at SB
12:42:10 <Eric> Wow...lots of people want to tell me BHI is going :-P
12:42:16 <CraigC> ynpvisitor17, :thumbsup:
12:42:35 <ynpvisitor60> Strong Indicator
12:42:43 <Eric> Yep, agree 17...correlation of observation and temps makes for a nice case study IMHO
12:43:08 <Cooper> thank you Beehive, BHI
12:43:45 <CraigC> the temp logger is my fave new tool
12:44:11 <CraigC> it would be amazing to have frequent updates on it
12:44:24 <Eric> definitely shows the strength of activity
12:44:24 <ynpvisitor17> and like Grand, SB can have multiple chances to erupt before it goes
12:44:26 <ynpvisitor100> Thyankfully that logger is working now. Was down for a long time
12:44:46 <Eric> The data seems to point that way 17
12:45:11 <Eric> Yes, I can't believe with having such an active period USGS failed to get that logger up sooner :-(
12:45:23 <Eric> grrrr
12:45:24 <CraigC> watching people disregard Beehive is more fun for me than actually watching Beehive on a screen
12:45:39 <Eric> They have empty holes to go watch Craig!
12:45:51 <Cooper> any news on when they are going to get the data back for their seismic arrays? that they placed at SB?
12:45:54 <ynpvisitor100> those people have no way to know that little geyser means anything
12:46:30 <Cooper> why would you walk away? BAD TOURIST
12:47:05 <Eric> perfect timing...BH then lunch :-D
12:47:05 <Cooper> Nice Chance for a Cold Bee shower
12:47:47 <Cooper> I have to leave in 3 minutes, Bee when I do will you wait for me to get back on?
12:47:47 <CraigC> I'm an obtrusive geyser enthusiast, I always tell people "you're gonna wanna stay around here for this one"
12:48:08 <CraigC> :bee:
12:48:12 <Cooper> Bee
12:48:16 <Cooper> or go early I will take that
12:48:18 <Eric> Wooot
12:48:19 <Cooper> :)
12:49:12 <Eric> Aurum would be a nice addition to this view :-D
12:49:17 <Cooper(Happy)> I guess I just have to leave in the middle of this.
12:49:49 <Eric> I do the same thing Craig...
12:49:57 <Cooper(Happy)> Bye Beehive, Thank You! :)
12:50:05 <Eric> At least give them a chance to stay and ask questions.
12:51:29 <Eric> Interesting steam at BH and Giantess going different directions.
12:51:55 <Eric> now they are in unison
12:52:03 <ynpvisitor97> ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwzx
12:52:13 <Eric> Hi cat
12:52:16 <CraigC> WTH
12:52:18 <CraigC> LOL
12:52:52 <Rice> What would be the appropirate way to ask a group of gazer what they are sitting and waiting for?
12:52:53 <The Long Z> I can figure out which end of the keyboard he stepped on.
12:53:12 <CraigC> "What are you sitting and waiting for?"
12:53:17 <Eric> :-D
12:53:24 <Eric> I was going to type the same thing :-D
12:53:28 <CraigC> ;)
12:53:55 <Eric> Only a couple gazers I know of that would ignore you.
12:54:03 <Rice> It always feels like awkward
12:54:03 <Eric> Most gazers would happily answer
12:54:11 <CraigC> wrong question; "Do you expect this to erupt?" then come sarcastic answers
12:54:14 <Betty> "Is this thing going to do something soon?"
12:54:27 <Betty> mostly heard
12:54:30 <Eric> "When does this thing go off?"
12:54:47 <Rice> "what ya doing?"
12:54:53 <CraigC> "if I knew, do you think I owuld have brought a back pack and lunch?"
12:54:54 <Eric> But craigs is probably the most common one I have heard
12:55:26 <Eric> alright...lunch time! enjoy daisy
12:55:33 <Betty> yes, Craigs is heard very often
12:55:34 <Eric> and riverside
12:55:53 <Betty> enjoy Eric
12:56:03 <Rice> I expect the smart answer, " A geyser"
12:56:06 <Cooper(Happy)> Hi Linda

12:56:28 <LindaG> Cooper(Happy), hi
12:56:40 <Betty> fast comeback, Cooper
12:56:56 <Cooper(Happy)> just had to move to my lunch period
12:57:11 <LindaG> I know,I was cooking chicken parmigiana. Going to Cape may for a few days and we rent a house and we all cook.
12:57:16 <CraigC> Rice, there are more nice gazers than ornery ones. Ask the honest question, and wait for the good response
12:57:33 <Cooper(Happy)> nice Linda
12:57:44 <Cooper(Happy)> you are making my mouth water even more
12:57:54 <LindaG> 😊
12:58:32 <ynpvisitor84> Kinda, i want some!!!
12:59:03 <CraigC> even when I get ornery and tired, if someone approaches and asks "can I ask you something", I answer nicely
12:59:35 <LindaG> 😊 the secret to chicken parmigiana is classico spicy tomato basil sauce
13:00:16 <CraigC> aurum

13:13:51 <ynpvisitor100> anyone gonna log Riverside ie?
13:14:17 <Casey> I'll get it
13:14:41 <ynpvisitor100> TY
13:17:37 <Cooper(Happy)> Oh Hi Lori
13:17:41 <Cooper(Happy)> Ms. Lori
13:17:55 <Cooper(Happy)> oh.. Hi Lori, and bye Lori, Everyone
13:18:09 <Lori S> Hi and Bye Cooper
13:22:33 <ynpvisitor108> How's the webcam been working since the radio/wireless fixes?
13:23:01 <Katie (in&out)> Beautifully!
13:23:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Craig did try to break it though.
13:23:54 <CraigC> it looked like a mailbox, sorry
13:24:32 <Kevin L™🌵> At least you didn't knock the Inn over.
13:24:34 <Rice> It was just a week ago it was !@#$%, lest we forget.
13:24:58 <CraigC> it was WHAT?
13:25:08 <CraigC> FUBAR?
13:25:09 <Rice> !@#$%
13:26:04 <Rice> Is that Steam from Giant Platform?
13:27:32 <Cooper(Happy)> and back
13:28:13 <ynpvisitor100> Should be time for Grotto soon
13:45:49 <LindaG> Rice, it never happened 😉
13:50:08 <CraigC> the geyser
13:53:53 <CraigC> Lone Star entry without major or minor desgnation
13:56:48 <CraigC> last time I was at Lone Star, we got there in time for a minor that was about 30 to 35 feet high, lasted around 2 mins. I entered it as a minor in the log book there, and then we went and found a spot under some trees to wait for the major. Some folks left after the minor. After the major, I went to enter, and someone had pointed to my entry and wrote that it was a Major, and it was great. LMAO
13:57:53 <CraigC> Maybe inside the case of the log book they should clarify the nature of the minors versus the majors
13:58:00 <Cooper(Happy)> Bison ie
13:58:49 <Lori S> Cooper(Happy), Not good to stand behind a bison ie :p
14:00:28 <Cooper(Happy)> haha Lori
14:00:41 <CraigC> bulger
14:06:17 <Cooper(Happy)> Hi VaporDinght
14:06:25 <Cooper(Happy)> VaporDinghy**
14:07:12 <VaporDinghy™> Cooper(Happy), Hello!
14:08:51 <Eric> Yes, the lone star log book is moderately helpful on walkup, majors logged there should be taken with a grain of salt
14:09:57 <Eric> I want to spend 2-3 days in shoshone next year...fingers crossed I can make it work!
14:09:58 <CraigC> Eric, yep, a little perusing, and some basic math, can usually decipher the erroneous logs
14:10:18 <Eric> You do any backpacking craig?
14:10:27 <Eric> up to shoshone in the fall of next year?
14:10:55 <CraigC> havent for years, but it sounds intriguing
14:11:05 <CraigC> hey Emily
14:11:08 <EmilyW> hi
14:11:18 <Eric> hike in early one day, spend the next just gazing and hike out the following day.
14:11:21 <Eric> Hi Emily
14:11:41 <EmilyW> You can't go off trail though
14:11:45 <CraigC> Wm wanted to do a one day trip in and out, I wasnt up for it
14:11:49 <EmilyW> Luckily a lot of cool things are close to it
14:12:06 <Eric> thats 22 miles in a day....a little long, but doable.
14:12:27 <EmilyW> a lot less if you have a bike
14:12:51 <CraigC> he said about 8 miles in, maybe a different route?
14:12:54 <VaporDinghy™> Hi Emily (Lori here)
14:13:03 <Cooper(Happy)> Or a Boat emily
14:13:08 <EmilyW> yes
14:13:17 <EmilyW> I believe the fastest way in is via Lone star
14:13:30 <Eric> I don't think it's that much less...only knocks off like 4 of those 22 miles
14:13:32 <CraigC> yeah, we would have ridden to LS, then hiked from there
14:13:43 <Cooper(Happy)> That would be a great day, Fishing the way there, Watching Geysers while you are there, fishing on the way back
14:13:44 <Eric> ohh, I thought it was 11
14:13:59 <Eric> 16 is much better
14:14:36 <EmilyW> I believe is about 6 from LS to the basin
14:14:59 <CraigC> if I lose some weight then I might be game for it
14:15:18 <EmilyW> you can make it raig
14:15:23 <EmilyW> very little elevation gain
14:15:57 <CraigC> my feet hurt, lots of years of carrying too heavy of a load
14:17:01 <Cooper(Happy)> adios all
14:17:52 <VaporDinghy™> Ciao
14:38:30 <ynpvisitor100> Grotto heating up
14:44:20 <Eric> 6.34 miles and 763ft of elevation gain between little giant geyser and lone star geyser
14:44:39 <CraigC> cool
14:45:14 <Eric> 2.44 miles and 266ft of elevation gain between parking area and lone star
14:45:17 <CraigC> a typical day in UGB, my smart watch logs 5 to 8 miles a day
14:45:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Is logging allowed in the park?
14:46:08 <Eric> just no planking
14:46:21 <CraigC> near Riverside, before the bridge
14:48:38 <Eric> look at all this illegal planking!
14:50:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought planking was something you did with your .22 rifle.
14:50:30 <Eric> thats plinking
14:52:54 <ynpvisitor17> Shoshone is doable for unfit people as a day hike when the days are long - you can see the whole basin as it's quite small
14:53:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Must be my Utah accent Eric.
14:53:43 <ynpvisitor17> head out early, not much elevation change, have a slow time in the basin, then back out
14:54:03 <Eric> see the whole basin, but can you catch all the active geysers in that timeframe?
14:54:10 <ynpvisitor17> the last couple of miles take forever - you hear the cars on the road but the parking lot never gets closer
14:54:47 <ynpvisitor17> you used to be able to see them. not sure what their intervals are these days
14:55:32 <ynpvisitor17> a one night trip would allow plenty of time to explore .. more days with geysers are always nice tho
14:55:34 <Eric> I think it would be pretty cool to hang out there at night...pretty cheap accomodations :-D
14:55:55 <Eric> maybe even day trip down toward bechler??
14:56:03 <ynpvisitor17> i dont think its much biger than back basin at Norris?
14:57:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Accommodations not much different than the Lodge cabins.
14:58:10 <Eric> haha...bathroom is closer :-D
14:58:34 <Eric> I like sleeping outside on nice nights
14:58:47 <Eric> and my gear doesn't weight that much for such a short, non-elevation hike
15:03:59 <Eric> I made a shoshone basin hike map with elevation info if anyone is interested:
15:15:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Fast moving cloud
15:27:00 <Kevin L™🌵> That was an abrupt start.
15:27:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Rainbow
15:31:52 <ynpvisitor100> Grotto ie
15:34:09 <Casey> Am I seeing the dead/silica-covered trees by Grand or is the light playing tricks on me?
15:35:11 <Joe> your eyes are not playing tricks on you
15:35:44 <ynpvisitor100> is Bijou paused?
15:35:47 <Joe> nor the light :)
15:35:49 <Casey> Thanks, Joe. For some reason I never noticed them on webcam.
15:36:37 <Casey> I notice them now
15:37:36 <ynpvisitor100> must be the wind
15:50:46 <ynpvisitor54> Wow no eruptions between the last two OF eruptions
15:53:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> the geyser is late, it missed my prediction time
15:54:22 <LindaG> Your namesake?
15:54:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> yup ..... no wiggles on the seismo yet
15:55:12 <LindaG> 😔 soon
15:55:48 <Kevin L™🌵> 2 weeks
15:57:54 <LindaG> Bbl
15:57:58 <Joe> GS I hope you can cope with your prediction miss!
15:58:40 <Joe> IF not I'm sure there are support groups somewhere
16:00:09 <Joe> just as it is always 5 O'clock somewhere :)
16:02:04 <Joe> speaking of 5 O'clock it is close enough to pop a top again :)
16:07:24 <Cooper> how come my, and just my cam freezes after about 1 minute of watching it?
16:07:35 <Cooper> and then I have to refresh it to get it to come back up?
16:07:46 <Katie (in&out)> What browser are you using?
16:08:05 <Joe> thanks mhvogel for the E-times
16:08:07 <Cooper> Chrome
16:08:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Works fine on Chrome for me
16:09:26 <Cooper> hmm maybe it is just that I have 25 other windows open right now then?
16:09:30 <Joe> same here, very good as usual :)
16:09:51 <Cooper> ok, closed all the toher windows but 1 and this one
16:10:47 <Katie (in&out)> click the padlock next to the URL
16:10:50 <Katie (in&out)> what is selected?
16:11:16 <Cooper> all allow
16:11:51 <Joe> bulger
16:12:08 <Katie (in&out)> May your internet connection is dropping packets
16:12:12 <Cooper> since I freed up my computer it is not freezing
16:12:43 <Cooper> I also moved the router closer to my computer(dont know if that helped)
16:15:47 <Eric> Yes, sounds like poor wireless connection
16:16:44 <Cooper> ok... I am going to go restart the router right now
16:16:51 <Cooper> will that help maybe?
16:17:16 <CraigC> bulger
16:17:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Wouldn't hurt
16:17:54 <Eric> probably not
16:18:05 <Eric> arty or atomizer
16:18:18 <Eric> or random steam from bisciut?
16:18:47 <Cooper> and the 1 minute time begins
16:18:58 <Joe> MSFT Windows removal will fix many things :)
16:19:18 <ynpvisitor116> Your prediction models suck
16:19:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> the window is a week long tho, so dont panic yet
16:20:18 <Cooper> Graham, he/she was talking about me
16:20:19 <Joe> :)
16:20:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> its still in the window :)
16:20:34 <Cooper> and either way my prediction window is not over yet:)
16:21:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder if William is going up there tonight
16:21:23 <CraigC> maybe he is already there
16:21:29 <Cooper> If I was him, I would, and I would become a human popsicle
16:21:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> he was at bH earlier, so maybe is SB window just opened
16:22:08 <CraigC> oh, wasnt paying attention
16:23:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am sure it will be hard to ressit the temptation to go up there since its in its window
16:24:22 <Cooper> Bison ns
16:24:44 <Cooper> OT
16:42:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> only 10% chance of rain tonight and temps above freezing ... no problem for William
16:42:49 <Cooper> so not too bad then
16:43:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> my guess is it will be freezing at Norris tho
16:48:56 <Cooper> Aurum could be any time here soon
16:53:33 <Cooper> definitely splashing
16:54:24 <Cooper> you know what I meant:p
16:57:03 <LindaG> Still staring at the seismo? 😊
16:57:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls released
16:58:23 <LindaG> Got it
17:03:15 <LindaG> OF
17:14:26 <CraigC> MC
17:15:33 <LindaGp> Looks like lion wants to do something
17:15:56 <CraigC> like what, skip down the yellow brick road?
17:16:18 <LindaGp> Haha
17:16:25 <CraigC> ;)
17:18:17 <LindaGp> Trying to see dep without losing aurum
17:18:57 <LindaGp> Or lion
17:20:25 <Cooper> oh good. I did not miss Aurum
17:39:07 <Eric> time for aurum
17:39:09 <LindaGp> Don't think that is all doublet
17:39:16 <ynpvisitor100> did Dep just splash?
17:39:34 <Cooper> splashy Aurum
17:39:41 <LindaGp> Well maybe doublet
17:43:12 <LindaGp> It's dark
17:43:22 <Cooper> Aurum vs Daisy, I will leave that to the cam op
17:43:34 <Eric> good idea
17:45:41 <ynpvisitor2> Did Cooper miss another SB prediction?
17:46:00 <Cooper> not quite yet:)
17:46:08 <Cooper> I have another 2.5 hours
17:46:41 <Cooper> and then I lose, and Lori will likely win with her Double Secret Noodle
17:46:44 <LindaGp> Aurum
17:46:45 <LindaGp> .
17:46:45 <LindaGp> .
17:46:52 <Cooper> Nice
17:46:58 <Cooper> Good Choice Cam Op
17:47:40 <Cooper> GMK here?
17:47:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Way to go Linda
17:47:59 <LindaGp> And done
17:48:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope we dont get another night SB eruption
17:48:33 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, ☺ got it
17:53:51 <LindaGp> OT
17:54:03 <ynpvisitor2> Hopefully it waits for tomorrow in the light
17:54:30 <ynpvisitor2> Only an hour of light left
17:54:39 <LindaGp> Daisy
17:54:49 <Cooper> so it should have a dusk eruption:)
17:55:17 <ynpvisitor2> No, light would be better
17:55:29 <Cooper> dusk
17:59:15 <LindaGp> One And to see churn erupt
17:59:49 <LindaGp> *I
17:59:49 <ynpvisitor100> Grotto Ftn?
17:59:57 <Cooper> Linda, here in like 5 seconds can you just do a "."
18:00:21 <LindaGp> .
18:00:30 <Cooper> thank you Linda
18:00:48 <LindaGp> Was that a secret code?lol
18:01:01 <Cooper> No, wanted to see volume loud enough for me to hear "........." for Grand
18:01:29 <LindaGp> 👍
18:02:27 <LindaGp> Oblong is looking steamy
18:06:15 <LindaGp> Maybe an evening arty
18:08:00 <LindaGp> Bulger
18:10:48 <Vapordinghy> Hello Linda Hello! (It's Lori)
18:10:56 <LindaGp> Lion
18:11:07 <LindaGp> hello Lori hello
18:11:07 <Cooper> Oh Lion
18:11:13 <Cooper> Hi Lori
18:11:19 <LindaGp> This should be an ini
18:11:19 <Cooper> Sorry.. Ms. Lori
18:14:18 <LindaGp> Amazing change in light
18:14:45 <LindaGp> Vapordinghy, how r u?
18:14:48 <Cooper> would be a great time for SB
18:15:59 <Vapordinghy> Sorry, afk for a guest. I am great!
18:16:03 <Vapordinghy> you?
18:16:25 <Vapordinghy> How do you put a "TM" to the right of the user name?
18:16:30 <Cooper> what were the guests doing this time?:p
18:16:51 <Vapordinghy> They presed buttons on their remote that n=messed up their TV.
18:17:05 <Cooper> haha
18:17:06 <LindaGp> I'm good, mini vacation tomorrow
18:17:18 <Cooper> oh, where too?
18:18:04 <LindaGp> Cape may, going birding
18:18:16 <Cooper> Nice
18:18:21 <Cooper> Bring back pics
18:18:42 <LindaGp> 😃 I'll try
18:18:48 <Vapordinghy> Note to self. Press play on the cam when you join. Bonk
18:18:59 <Cooper> haha
18:19:24 <Cooper> that might help just a bit
18:19:46 <LindaGp> Vapordinghy, I do that all the time
18:19:47 <Cooper> Turban
18:20:01 <LindaGp> And then wonder why nothing is moving
18:20:05 <Vapordinghy> So nice to not have to keep the webcam status above everything else on the left!
18:20:21 <Cooper> yes it is!
18:20:21 <LindaGp> It sure is!
18:20:22 <Vapordinghy> oops. Right.
18:21:35 <Vapordinghy> Reorganized the office. Keep looking wjere th clock used to be and seeing a calendar instead.
18:21:50 <Cooper> haha
18:23:34 <Cooper> Grotto off
18:23:46 <Cooper> GO GIANT(unlikely but one can hoe)
18:23:59 <Vapordinghy> hoe potatoes?
18:24:15 <Cooper> what is hoe potato?
18:24:29 <Vapordinghy> You said one can hoe.
18:24:37 <Cooper> oh
18:24:41 <Cooper> haha
18:24:41 <Vapordinghy> A hoe is a gardening tool...
18:24:54 <Cooper> you know what I mea, pope
18:25:00 <ynpvisitor100> no GRotto on GT this afternoon
18:25:02 <Vapordinghy> hehe
18:25:21 <LindaGp> Hehe I was going to ask if you can dig also
18:25:26 <Cooper> 100, Grotto was on earlier, just did not enter it
18:25:35 <Vapordinghy> LindaGp, we are typing like you.
18:25:42 <Cooper> haha
18:25:54 <ynpvisitor100> thats what im saying. no entry
18:25:56 <Cooper> The Linda Speak Plague has infected me
18:25:56 <LindaGp> I'm honored
18:26:03 <Cooper> haha
18:26:26 <Cooper> Linda, you get your name on my tomb stone, "Death by Linda Speak Plague"
18:26:46 <Vapordinghy> Cooper, it's not fatal.
18:27:03 <Vapordinghy> Contageous, but not fatal.
18:27:28 <Cooper> it could be a torture method
18:28:16 <Vapordinghy> Cooper, no, waiting for Steamboat is a better torture method
18:28:26 <Cooper> haha
18:28:33 <Vapordinghy> Especially if there is thunder and lightning
18:28:45 <Cooper> Waiting for SB, with LSP is even worse, in bad weather, overnight, in winter
18:28:54 <LindaGp> Vapordinghy, going to steamboat?
18:29:03 <Cooper> and then SB erupts 30 minutes after you get released!
18:30:08 <Vapordinghy> LindaGp, If I go, it won't. So I will stay home to benefit those already there.
18:30:24 <Cooper> haha
18:30:33 <Vapordinghy> Crud. I got an email and need to do work. Sigh.
18:30:44 <Cooper> Bye Lrou
18:30:52 <Cooper> Good Lucj
18:30:55 <Cooper> Lori*
18:30:58 <Cooper> Luck*
18:31:00 <LindaGp> A selfless contribution to the geyser world 😃
18:31:37 <LindaGp> Bulger
18:31:38 <Vapordinghy> Well, you all will be off to the side. I mean, Grand
18:31:42 <LindaGp> wow
18:32:13 <Cooper> Bulgers Hole
18:32:15 <Cooper> nope
18:32:20 <Cooper> just steamy
18:32:24 <LindaGp> Cooper, inthought maybe
18:35:14 <LindaGp> Dang
18:35:30 <Cooper> OF ie
18:35:35 <Cooper> hey we do not have to wait
18:35:43 <LindaGp> OF
18:37:28 <Vapordinghy> I'm just going to have to get a second clock.
18:38:03 <LindaGp> I entered 18:34 based on static
18:38:10 <Cooper> that is not terrible is it?
18:38:53 <Vapordinghy> I keep looking at the calendar. But the clock has to be next to our check in/out time sign, which I moved.
18:39:06 <Vapordinghy> So, 2nd clock.
18:39:17 <Cooper> ok... so not terrible, but 2nd clock
18:39:34 <CraigC> Vapordinghy, do you know what rentals go for in West?
18:40:14 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, There are no available rentals in West. Ever.
18:40:23 <Vapordinghy> If you mean for long term.
18:40:33 <CraigC> where do service workers live?
18:41:15 <Vapordinghy> In a tent in the woods during the summer, or they quadruple up in an efficiency. Seriously.
18:41:41 <CraigC> dang
18:41:46 <Cooper> Lori, then if you do not mind me asking, where do you live?
18:41:47 <Vapordinghy> Many folks get jobs whose emplyer has employee housing.
18:42:03 <Vapordinghy> See my last comment. :)
18:42:07 <Cooper> smart Lori
18:42:14 <LindaGp> Bison
18:42:16 <Cooper> you live in a tent in the woods? I doubt that
18:42:29 <Cooper> you have a dog, and you mentioned windows, so ...
18:42:39 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, those that live here long term get a bit miffed if a rental oens and someone takes it short term. But, money is money.
18:42:40 <Cooper> then you live in a house, with your dog?
18:42:43 <CraigC> comp[rehension failure
18:43:04 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, hehe
18:43:09 <CraigC> ;)
18:43:39 <Vapordinghy> Cooper, I live in a manufactured home that is owned by my employer. I do have a lease, though, unlike many employee housing arrangements.
18:43:59 <CraigC> I need some kind of game plan for being able to stay longer then the 16 day limit at Bakers Hole
18:44:12 <Cooper> nice, at least you do not live in a tent in the woods:)
18:44:24 <Cooper> bye a house in West?
18:44:46 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, vacation rentals outside town could be an option. But pricey.
18:46:55 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, Our cheapest in town where I work is $319 a night in peak season.
18:47:08 <LindaGp> Testing presets
18:47:20 <Cooper> not at you Linda:)
18:47:26 <Vapordinghy> But seriously, CraigC, call the realtors in town. They may be able to help.
18:47:32 <LindaGp> Lol thx
18:47:56 <CraigC> well, I guess 840 a month for my RV isnt all that bad
18:48:15 <Vapordinghy> if you find something, let me know cuz we are trying to relocate in a few months. LOL
18:48:21 <CraigC> maybe just bounce back and forth between Madison and Bakers
18:48:23 <Cooper> Craig, the would add up quickly
18:48:46 <CraigC> Cooper, it's 3 months, not a year
18:49:02 <Cooper> still
18:49:09 <Cooper> that over time will add up
18:49:24 <CraigC> people drop 2500 for a week of vacation
18:49:28 <LindaGp> OR
18:49:31 <LindaGp> aot
18:49:35 <LindaGp> Lol
18:49:38 <Vapordinghy> CraigC, If you can live without services, you can go down the road towards the Beaver Creek Cabin and there are spaces back in there where you can park an RV for I think 2 weeks for free.
18:49:39 <LindaGp> OT
18:50:07 <Cooper> and not just money:) "relationships with your family and friends"(quoting some famous old white guy)
18:50:14 <CraigC> remind me where Beaver Creek is
18:50:52 <CraigC> I have made family and friends in YNP
18:51:02 <CraigC> seriously
18:51:12 <Vapordinghy> Past Hebgen Lake on 287, before Quake Lake, turn to the right after Cabin Creek Campground
18:51:22 <Cooper> what about your family and friends at home?
18:51:51 <CraigC> Cooper, probably best if you sit this one out
18:52:15 <Cooper> There it goes!
18:52:23 <Cooper> Sorry that was meant to go into PM
18:53:26 <CraigC> Vapordinghy, I'll keep that in mind as an option, thanks
18:54:10 <Vapordinghy> You can also park an RV in Idaho for free on the National Forest in many places. Not even in a site.
18:54:31 <CraigC> I don't want to drive that far daily
18:54:48 <Vapordinghy> Go down Yale Kilgore Road to the USFS land, or someplace like that.
18:55:15 <Vapordinghy> Beaver Creek area is about as far as some of the USFS land in Idaho tough
18:55:29 <Vapordinghy> Well, have to close up the office.
18:55:38 <Cooper> Bye Lori
18:55:46 <CraigC> cooper, if you feel like me telling you to stick your nose out of my conversation is bullying you, you are delusional
18:55:50 <LindaGp> Vapordinghy, night
18:55:51 <Cooper> Have a wonderful rest of your day
18:56:11 <Cooper> Craig, I am talking about you always picking on me becuase of what I do!
18:56:19 <Cooper> not just this incident
18:56:28 <CraigC> and again, stop PMing me
18:56:42 <Cooper> stop picking on me
18:56:52 <Vapordinghy> LindaGp, here's your sacrificial Grand departure!
18:56:55 <Cooper> or I will continue to PM you about this
18:57:01 <CraigC> playing the victim card, oh brother
18:57:08 <Cooper> UNTIL you stop bullying/picking on me
18:57:21 <CraigC> ;)
18:57:29 <Cooper> Craig, I am the victim of your bullying and you picking on me(likely because I am young)
18:57:43 <CraigC> ignore me
18:57:47 <CraigC> please
18:58:06 <Vapordinghy> Night all.
18:58:15 <LindaGp> Vapordinghy, good night lori
18:58:21 <Cooper> Craig, you need to stop picking on me
18:58:22 <LindaGp> Riverside
18:58:29 <Cooper> Riverside
18:58:38 <Cooper> Speedy Lind Eyes
18:58:55 <Cooper> Linda*
19:00:05 <Cooper> Seriously Craig, what you have been doing because of how I am young, and I am trying to predict steamboat(working well in my opinion) gives you NO right to pick on me, and target me for your 6 Year Old like Comments, and Meaness
19:00:07 <LindaGp> we are at 6hrs and 39 min for grand
19:00:17 <Cooper> and Craig, trust me it is getting to me..
19:01:05 <CraigC> someone let me know when this drama ends
19:01:09 <Cooper> and then plus, with all I have gone through this summer you just keep going, and going and going
19:01:15 <Cooper> SO YOU NEED TO STOP
19:01:32 <Cooper> Woah, the Bully does not want to be told that he is being a bully
19:01:42 <ynpvisitor36> This is why i stopped signing in
19:01:46 <LindaGp> enough!
19:06:24 <ynpvisitor52> Cooper drama is the new name of chat!
19:06:45 <ynpvisitor52> I wonder how many people don’t sign in anymore?
19:06:58 <ynpvisitor52> LOTS I imagine.
19:10:13 <LindaGp> Hi michael
19:10:20 <Michael> Hi LindaGp
19:13:19 <LindaGp> Grand is taking its sweet time
19:14:05 <LindaGp> Almost 7 hrs
19:15:55 <Kevin L™🌵> It is waiting for OF window

19:18:07 <ynpvisitor24> .
19:18:07 <ynpvisitor24> .

19:18:10 <LindaGp> Grand
19:18:11 <LindaGp> .
19:18:11 <LindaGp> .
19:18:30 <LindaGp> Nice
19:19:22 <Michael> Hooray! I didn't miss everything tonight.
19:20:11 <LindaGp>
19:21:20 <LindaGp> Just want to check lion
19:26:18 <LindaGp> Bulger
19:29:11 <LindaGp> I don't think there was a second
19:31:07 <LindaGp> Beginning or end
19:31:12 <LindaGp> Hi cooper
19:31:37 <LindaGp> Maybe the end
19:33:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Needs a shave
19:34:02 <LindaGp> Lion
19:34:19 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, 😊
19:34:28 <CraigC> looks more like an initial
19:34:33 <LindaGp> Losing light
19:35:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought it was panthers that were pink
19:35:07 <LindaGp> I don't know the o e at 18:10 should have been ini
19:35:23 <LindaGp> We'll see
19:35:45 <LindaGp> A pink lion
19:37:26 <Cooper> Linda, how ur day going
19:38:00 <LindaGp> Ok
19:39:53 <Cooper> This the one time/first in Life that 1. I have literally no Clue what to do, 2. Asking Craig for advice, 3. Contemplating my existence:(
19:40:37 <LindaGp> Cooper just chill and enjoy the geysers
19:41:57 <LindaGp> Cooper, you have to understand somw people like their privacy, that's all
19:42:18 <Cooper> Linda, that is what I am trying to do...
19:42:29 <LindaGp> We are all here to watch geysers
19:43:21 <Cooper> the questions right now are, 1. Why the heck do I exist and bother existing, and 2. Would it be more beneficial to everyone for me to start watching the cam from the NPS page again.
19:43:57 <Cooper> I guess SB is having a bad day too, look at the note
19:45:35 <LindaGp> Cooper, I think you are trying to hard. Sit back and learn from those with experience.
19:46:00 <Cooper> oh... I have one reason why I bother existing: Hope, hope that next year will not be like this one
19:46:46 <Cooper> maybe I should make that a new years resolution, "DO NOT REPEAT 2019":p:(:)
19:47:28 <Cooper> I need a punching bag, before I start using myself as one
19:47:53 <Michael> Question 1 has puzzled people throughout the ages. If it's a daily concern, is there someone you trust that you can bounce ideas off of privately?
19:48:16 <Cooper> 2 people(well maybe 3)
19:49:16 <Cooper> 1, My Mom(she will forget it in 30 seconds anyway), 2. My Dad, and 3. I trust Lori pretty well, and of course my German Shepard
19:50:19 <Cooper> like right now I am whispering thoughts into my sleeping Dogs ear:p maybe I need to see another counselor for that:p
19:51:28 <LindaGp> It's always good to have someone to talk to.
19:51:48 <Michael> That sounds like a pretty sensible thing to do. Some people keep a diary for their personal thoughts. Sharing them with animals is pretty safe too.
19:53:00 <Cooper> I need to get these thoughts out of my head somehow, I am having some very bad thoughts.
19:53:06 <Cooper> Maybe i need to read a book
19:53:12 <LindaGp> Losing light I think I'm going to set to night view
19:53:21 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
19:53:36 <Michael> OK Linda. Maybe something neat will happen down-basin.
19:53:57 <Cooper> Giant? F & M?:p Never Going to happen.
19:54:06 <Cooper> I am going to read a book
19:55:09 <LindaGp> I'm off cam
19:57:44 <Cooper> Reading about Bee fixes everything:)
19:58:17 <Cooper> I am heading to bed now
19:58:32 <LindaGp> Cooper, my beat advice is to stick to geysers here. If you need to talk to your parents or a counselor that is what you should do.
19:58:41 <Cooper> "I really do not feel like doing any quotes tonight" -Korben Cooper
19:58:45 <Cooper> Thank you Linda
19:58:57 <Cooper> Have a Good Night
19:59:05 <LindaGp> Your welcome, have a good night
19:59:19 <Kevin L™🌵> "When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen." --Ernest Hemingway
19:59:51 <Cooper> Thanks Kevin for covering my quote of the night:)
19:59:56 <Cooper> :)
20:00:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I was just turning a pen made of maple. The depot smells like pancakes now.
20:00:59 <Michael> Do you serve 24-hour breakfast?
20:01:09 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, ☺
20:01:40 <Kevin L™🌵> It is odd what some wood smells like. Bocote smells like pickles.
20:02:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Olivewood is a great smell but I did one of Camphor burl that cleared my head and made the depot smell for a week!
20:06:58 <ynpvisitor49> I am seeing UFOs or fairies at the top of the screen :)
20:07:25 <LindaGp> I vote for fairies
20:07:38 <CraigC> car lights reflecting inside the lens
20:07:44 <CraigC> or fairies'
20:07:50 <LindaGp> CraigC, your no fun
20:08:06 <CraigC> UFO just landed by lower hams
20:08:45 <CraigC> they got the bison, and took off
20:09:20 <LindaGp> Got dark quick
20:10:34 <ynpvisitor86> I vote Cooper goes back to NPS page. Yes, please.
20:11:25 <LindaGp> I'm not commenting on any of this. So have a good night.
20:11:48 <CraigC> I promise 86 is not me ;)
20:12:10 <Cooper> I could not resist finding a quote of the Night, thank you Kevin for the inspiration
20:13:17 <Cooper> "even if you can not change all the people around you. you can change the people to be around. Life is too short to waste time on people who don't appreciate you, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh and feel loved"
20:13:29 <Cooper> Cooper Out for Real this time
20:17:10 <CraigC> another pm... my hell
20:17:22 <CraigC> this chat needs a block feature
20:19:24 <ynpvisitor95> Craig, give the poor kid a break
20:19:59 <CraigC> sarcasm?
20:20:06 <ynpvisitor95> what in a PM could possibly be so bad maybe he just wants to try to fix things
20:20:13 <ynpvisitor95> no, no sarcasm
20:20:20 <ynpvisitor95> he/she*
20:20:28 <CraigC> no he doesn't
20:20:42 <ynpvisitor95> why do you say that
20:21:14 <CraigC> my experience working with juveniles, and the tactics they use to avoid accountability
20:21:25 <ynpvisitor95> ok
20:21:40 <CraigC> plays various cards here in this room to manipulate
20:21:40 <ynpvisitor95> you are the expert there
20:21:55 <ynpvisitor95> but why? why does he do that then
20:22:23 <ynpvisitor95> if he wanted to manipulate, do not let him
20:22:25 <CraigC> my guess from a very outside.... no one taught him good boundaries
20:22:40 <ynpvisitor95> and if he plays cards, bluff
20:22:52 <ynpvisitor95> what makes you say that
20:22:52 <CraigC> I don't. Thus, I never get the "thanks for having my back" BS
20:23:25 <ynpvisitor95> is that what you want, him/her to say "thanks for having my back"
20:23:47 <CraigC> reinforcing it, thinking it is being nice, isnt doing any favors
20:24:00 <CraigC> NOPE, not that at all
20:24:03 <ynpvisitor95> ok
20:24:12 <ynpvisitor95> than what? what do you want?
20:24:22 <ynpvisitor95> I have heard he/she reads chat history
20:24:32 <CraigC> that is more manipulation.... agree with me, I will give you my thanks
20:24:57 <ynpvisitor95> so what do you want with him/her?
20:25:04 <CraigC> who are you?
20:25:15 <ynpvisitor95> guess Craig, guess...
20:25:23 <CraigC> :)
20:25:28 <ynpvisitor95> you do not think I go to bed at 830 do you?
20:25:41 <ynpvisitor95> maybe that is what I need tho
20:25:44 <ynpvisitor95> some sleep
20:25:59 <ynpvisitor95> yes Craig, it is Cooper.
20:26:19 <ynpvisitor95> so what do oyu want from me?:)
20:26:22 <CraigC> good one, bravo
20:26:29 <ynpvisitor95> thank you
20:27:36 <ynpvisitor95> seriously, I am reaching out, and wondering what you want:)
20:28:20 <ynpvisitor95> I thought the him/her bid was a good touch:D did not work:p
20:28:22 <CraigC> a block feature ;)
20:28:27 <ynpvisitor95> haha
20:28:35 <ynpvisitor95> we both want that ;);)
20:29:02 <ynpvisitor95> what do you want, that I can do?
20:29:18 <ynpvisitor95> do you want me to ignore you?
20:29:30 <ynpvisitor95> play dead:p?
20:29:35 <CraigC> haven't I asked that multiple times?
20:29:56 <ynpvisitor95> I need to hear it again, directly from you, right now
20:30:08 <ynpvisitor95> and in as mean of a tone as possible
20:30:24 <ynpvisitor95> *a little mean tone works well with me*
20:30:40 <CraigC> "maybe he just wants to try to fix things" see.... BS
20:30:59 <ynpvisitor95> what if I do?
20:31:13 <CraigC> this isnt the place for your crap like this..... it's for people that like geysers
20:31:32 <ynpvisitor95> I like Geysers, but good mean tone there
20:31:42 <ynpvisitor95> so, you want me to ignore you?
20:31:55 <CraigC> I'm the only one not using a # to say it like it is....
20:32:33 <Michael> Look, I don't know the history here, but I can tell this is not a productive conversation.
20:33:30 <Joe> This chat has become totally useless I used to come here for enjoyment, until Eric made a mistake and decided to be nice, it did not work
20:33:44 <ynpvisitor95> History= Craig and I do not like eachother, Cooper(I) wnats to fix it, Craig needs to hand the dish to me on a silver platter.
20:33:55 <CraigC> I've had enough for tonight of this
20:34:09 <ynpvisitor95> so no silver platter. bummer
20:34:16 <ynpvisitor95> Goodnight Invisible Craig
20:35:00 <ynpvisitor95> Joe, I promise you something right now... if I ever pull something like this again... tell Eric to ban me. No Kidding Here.
20:35:46 <ynpvisitor95> Goodnight Joe
20:36:28 <Joe> Cooper you have ruined a very nice chat page, Good by
21:03:44 <ynpvisitor35> That Cooper kid needs help, and maybe banning him from here would help him seek it. Then, we don’t have to participate in his constant need for attention. Let a professional deal with it.
21:15:05 <ynpvisitor34> banning won't work he will just come back as a number
21:24:17 <ynpvisitor74> wow, still no SB
21:25:30 <ynpvisitor74> pretty off from my guess
21:28:23 <ynpvisitor84> Yes, mine too
21:30:59 <ynpvisitor74> interesting notes from cb
21:32:26 <ynpvisitor84> I don't like it
21:33:27 <ynpvisitor74> if you look at the weekly temp logger, it looks kinda like the one from 2 eruptions back, where it had spikes, then cooled some and started back up
21:33:34 <ynpvisitor54> time for it to slow down?
21:34:12 <ynpvisitor84> That is what I am worried about
21:34:59 <ynpvisitor74> I believe it reaches the window of possibility, then it can do various things, such as going for it, and falling flat, and needing time to rebuild..... or, dragging it out slowly, then boom..or, or, or
21:36:30 <ynpvisitor74> I think it has rebuilt from the spikes yesterday, but we wont know til tomorrow's update on the logger, but if so.... then anything can happen now
21:37:12 <ynpvisitor84> When I looked at the daily temp graph it wasn't working
21:37:33 <ynpvisitor84> Is it updated at certain times
21:37:36 <ynpvisitor74> weekly;
21:37:47 <ynpvisitor84> Thanks
21:37:59 <ynpvisitor74> it updates in the am, around 730, but the cutoff of the log is 600
21:38:38 <ynpvisitor84> Ok
21:40:18 <ynpvisitor54> We are lucky to have experienced this many. Now we can learn what it does after 1.5 years, like in the 60's
21:41:57 <ynpvisitor74> if it lasts thru next summer, I'll try harder to catch eruptions
21:42:49 <ynpvisitor84> Me too
21:43:27 <ynpvisitor74> I don't want to have regrets later on for taking it for granted
21:45:08 <ynpvisitor84> No, but I don't want it to end
21:46:04 <ynpvisitor84> Who would of thought
21:47:06 <ynpvisitor74> does anyone even have a slight clue of why it ends, or starts back again
21:48:47 <ynpvisitor84> I heard that it was that swarm of quakes that started it
21:50:58 <ynpvisitor74> so next significant local quake, everyone will be holding their breaths
21:51:54 <ynpvisitor84> I don't if anyone really knows
21:53:45 <ynpvisitor74> well, best wishes on watching seismo, night
