06:07:53 <ynpvisitor113> no SB overnight
06:08:03 <ynpvisitor113> maybe this morning
06:12:12 <Betty> is that Grand?
06:12:32 <Betty> maybe too early
06:13:17 <Joe> It is Daisy, we are in Castle to Lion view
06:13:41 <Betty> ahh, thanks and morning Joe
06:13:55 <Joe> Hi Betty
06:14:18 <CraigC> hey Joe and Betty
06:14:37 <Betty> morning Craig
06:14:49 <Betty> you are an early bird
06:14:57 <Joe> Hi Craig
06:19:22 <Betty> bbl
06:36:55 <Joe> Grand
06:44:36 <Joe> Hi CC
06:45:08 <Joe> Grand is close to the end
06:45:29 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning all
06:45:40 <CraigC> hey CC
06:45:46 <ynpvisitorCC> I have thecam
06:45:50 <CraigC> Steamboat is on deck... :)
06:48:31 <ynpvisitorCC> Has Castle been going?
06:49:09 <Joe> Castle appears to have erupted in the fog, not long ago, I think
06:49:35 <ynpvisitorCC> looks like it to me
06:49:46 <ynpvisitorCC> will you post?
06:50:43 <Joe> One could post Castle 0648 ie ? and probably be closr to correct.
06:53:10 <Joe> If you want I will post, other wise it is yours.
06:53:29 <ynpvisitorCC> please post
06:56:26 <Joe> Posted, Now we will see if it is major, it probably will be as it had two minors preceding it.
06:56:48 <ynpvisitorCC> I will go back
06:58:04 <Joe> I think the fog will clear fast, it has come and gone most of the night
06:59:55 <Joe> The cam has been good, but the controls are sluggish, it has taken up to 5 seconds to move after keypress for me
07:00:31 <Joe> thirs minor
07:00:41 <Joe> third*
07:21:09 <ynpvisitorCC> Love thelighting at OF this morning
07:31:18 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
08:03:59 <CraigC> SB going cherries any time now
08:06:55 <Cooper> Hi Kevin
08:07:08 <Cooper> Craig, That is what I was thinking(this afternoon?)
08:07:16 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Morning
08:07:42 <CraigC> any time, between NOW and Monday, or Tuesday
08:07:56 <CraigC> hey Kevin
08:08:03 <Cooper> Haha, but true
08:08:21 <CraigC> it's in Slot Machine mode now
08:24:15 <Betty> hi again
08:24:25 <GO SB(Cooper)> Hi Betty
08:25:07 <GO SB(Cooper)> Lori just emailed me, she is heading into Norris here soon
08:25:48 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Hi Betty. No snow at Eagles Nest yet.
08:26:09 <GO SB(Cooper)> Betty, you hear that I went skiing yesterday?
08:26:24 <Betty> nice Cooper
08:26:34 <Betty> hi Kevin
08:42:33 <CraigC> lion
08:48:12 <CraigC> thanks, Joe
08:48:52 <Joe> I'll delete if you want to post
08:49:32 <CraigC> nope, I wasn't sure anyone else was going to, you had the correct time
08:50:09 <Joe> I had to check the recording to be sure
08:50:44 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:53:46 <Betty> funny steamy holes near bw
08:55:02 <CraigC> a fracture line
08:55:27 <Betty> yep, looks like
08:55:52 <CraigC> I think it was Micah that was telling about them last Spring
08:57:30 <CraigC> is that a bison on the upper right edge, towards the lodge
08:57:48 <CraigC> no, too small
09:02:20 <Betty> OF ie
09:10:35 <GO SB(Cooper)> Dep
09:11:01 <GO SB(Cooper)> I think Dep?
09:11:08 <GO SB(Cooper)> Bulger
09:11:10 <CraigC> bulger
09:11:47 <GO SB(Cooper)> yup
09:33:25 <GO SB(Cooper)> Wish me luck fishing

09:52:48 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Big Boy on Barstow railcam in about 10m: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsMrJJaU6gk
09:53:57 <CraigC> Kevin L: Virtual Railfan Extrordinaire
09:57:26 <CraigC> Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅, are you a camop for any of those kinds of cams?
09:57:59 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> No. This one keeps me busy enough!
09:59:05 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Double header about to pu out of Chama too.
09:59:58 <CraigC> how do you watch them all?
10:00:26 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> I use iPad and an extra window.
10:00:57 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> This doesn't happen often though. Chama season shuts down next week.
10:01:21 <CraigC> whats the link to your chama cam?
10:01:42 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> http://www.coloradonewmexicosteamtrain.org/camera-portal-horizontal.htm
10:02:33 <CraigC> thanks
10:02:39 <CraigC> roar
10:03:17 <CraigC> lion
10:03:29 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Chama leaving now
10:03:55 <CraigC> nice
10:04:24 <CraigC> trains look like 2 lion eruptions
10:06:08 <CraigC> YNM made my heart jump a little
10:06:42 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Steam engines are like a geyser in some ways.
10:06:47 <CraigC> fake out noise
10:06:58 <CraigC> yeah, good point
10:07:34 <CraigC> riverside
10:07:49 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Big Boy on foreign tracks now so should be to Barstow soon.
10:08:09 <CraigC> probably wouldn't take much alteration to make a steam engine become a geyser
10:08:42 <CraigC> old tardy
10:14:03 <CraigC> nothing like the crowds here when BB came through
10:15:52 <Joe> California probably has a watching trains tax, so it is only for the well off :)
10:16:02 <CraigC> haha
10:16:26 <CraigC> but weed is legal, so they are ahead
10:17:30 <Joe> Cali weed tax?
10:18:40 <Joe> Here it is
10:19:00 <Betty> thereΒ΄s the bi boy
10:19:12 <Betty> big
10:19:54 <CraigC> hmm, I dont see it
10:20:06 <Joe> There it goes
10:20:36 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> :)
10:21:01 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> That cam can be rewound.
10:21:06 <Betty> good sound
10:21:22 <Cooper> Mobile now:)
10:22:07 <Joe> Is it going to switch and back in?
10:23:15 <CraigC> were those BNSFs passing behind?
10:25:30 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Yes. This is BNSF track. UP has trackage rights though.
10:25:43 <CraigC> their camop has a more fluid interface, they are moving both axes at the same time
10:26:19 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> They will back it in since the curves are better. They don't want to derail the Big Boy.
10:27:00 <Cooper> Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅, that's a good idea of theirs
10:27:49 <CraigC> did you see the YNP tourist driving on the bridge, they stopped to watch, causing cars to back up LOL
10:28:49 <Betty> OF
10:28:52 <CraigC> BNSF has the best color scheme. If I did a model RR, that is what I would get
10:30:36 <Cooper> Well time to get the yacks/boats out, GO :st
10:30:43 <Cooper> :sb:
10:30:47 <Joe> Here it is again:)
10:31:08 <Cooper> That is what I was trying to say:p stupid bumps
10:31:35 <CraigC> I fast forwarded, now I am seeing it live this time
10:32:24 <CraigC> Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅, do they use FRS, or what?
10:47:22 <Joe> Daisy
11:04:51 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> Craig, they have their own RR channels. Mostly use 160.515 around here. May use a different one on BNSF tracks.

11:27:19 <Michael> (checks GT log) I guess it's one of those everybody-at-Norris days...
11:31:58 <Eric> Morning all
11:32:29 <Eric> Can webcam operators ask NPS staff to restart the T1 modem in the ranger station...I bet that fixes this issue for a while.
11:32:57 <Eric> I believe they had some script or automation process in place previously that made this happen nightly
11:33:02 <Joe> Hi Eric, Do you do the programming for the GT phone app
11:33:09 <Eric> Until them moved the modem over to the Ranger Station
11:33:18 <Eric> Until they
11:33:40 <Eric> Hi Joe, I don't do the phone app for GT, but I talk directly to the people that do :-D
11:33:48 <Eric> Whats up?
11:34:07 <Joe> They need to update the webcam address
11:34:20 <Eric> It's already done...just waiting to push out the update
11:34:22 <Eric> Thanks!
11:34:31 <Joe> Thanks
11:35:05 <Michael> Hi Eric and Joe.
11:35:21 <Joe> Hi michael
11:35:34 <Joe> Michael*
11:35:58 <Eric> Hi Michael
11:39:02 <Joe> Kevin, are you still here
11:39:36 <Kevin L β„’πŸŒ΅> In and out
11:39:52 <Joe> I'll PM you
11:53:34 <ynpvisitor32> The IOS update is already out for GT
12:05:52 <ynpvisitor2> Kevin is glued to his tv
12:06:05 <ynpvisitor111> wow, Little Squirt two days in a row
12:06:31 <ynpvisitor2> Cooper is here?
12:07:13 <ynpvisitor111> No, I don't see his name on the lis
12:07:18 <ynpvisitor111> list
12:08:20 <Joe> He is on the list as GO SB
12:08:31 <ynpvisitor111> oh, I guess he is GO SB (Cooper)
12:08:42 <Michael> It's been a mostly silent bunch since I got here.
12:09:17 <ynpvisitor111> yum, Bison
12:09:18 <Michael> BHI would liven things up a bit, I'm sure.
12:10:56 <ynpvisitor111> Bee doesn't look very lively
12:13:21 <Joe> The Castle prediction is wrong, it is my falt, I entered what I thought was a Castle then deleted it after reviewing the overnight, Castle erupter sometime during the night but I could not pin it down
12:13:42 <Joe> erupted*
12:14:41 <Michael> With that +/- 4 hour window, the prediction could work out OK just by luck.
12:14:46 <CraigC> Double Secret Probation
12:17:27 <Michael> And I'm relieved to hear that it's not just me who has trouble with overnight Castle.
12:17:45 <Joe> :)
12:23:20 <ynpvisitor16> I think it erupted between 0530 and 0600. There appeared to be a steam cloud above the fog but I'm not certain enough to post it.
12:27:05 <CraigC> bulger
12:37:10 <Ryan> Afternoon
12:38:27 <Michael> Hi Ryan. I'm heading out in a few minutes, so Grand and Beehive should be around 1300.
12:38:56 <Ryan> Cool, I am just arriving, if the trend continues I'll just miss the starts :D
12:39:18 <Joe> Thanks 16 I saw that one also and nearly posted it, but the following views made me think maybe not
12:40:55 <Ryan> I have three SD cards to dredge through
12:43:07 <Joe> I did post one at 0643 as a minor, but after looking at it many times, I decided to delete.
12:44:56 <ynpvisitor52> I wonder if this is the first Beehive South Bubbler
12:45:13 <ynpvisitor52> If so, then Bee within the hour
12:52:07 <ynpvisitor52> indy
12:52:25 <ynpvisitor53> INDY
12:52:45 <Joe> Yes it is
12:53:16 <Kitt> now there are two off the path
12:54:54 <ynpvisitor9> Thx for txt
12:55:39 <Kitt> I vote nay for webcam failing
12:55:43 <LindaG> Hello everyone
12:56:06 <Kitt> hi
12:56:09 <LindaG> Kitt, I second that vote
12:56:57 <Ryan> Also thanks for the text
12:58:04 <JarnoO> afternoon all
12:58:11 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
12:59:11 <Kitt> 10 minutes or less until Bee
13:00:30 <Kitt> no gazer up there to tell people to wait
13:01:53 <ynpvisitor16> sad
13:01:57 <Kitt> Come on Bee, make some people very happy
13:04:27 <JarnoO> Daisy ie
13:04:39 <Kitt> Daisy
13:04:44 <ynpvisitor53> 'just walk on by'
13:05:55 <Kat> Thanks for the text, sitting in the airport in Albany, NY
13:06:00 <Kitt> Climb, Beehive, Climb!
13:06:11 <JarnoO> :bee:
13:06:46 <Ryan> Nice eruption
13:06:48 <Kitt> rainbow
13:06:50 <Ryan> Rainbow!
13:06:59 <JarnoO> Beebow!
13:08:01 <LindaG> Nice rainbow
13:08:03 <Kat> Love it!! Rainbows
13:08:11 <JarnoO> quite wind-blown
13:09:22 <LindaG> Best rainbow yet
13:09:54 <Kat> Awesome!!
13:10:59 <Kitt> and now for Grand
13:11:32 <Kat> Hey Linda, on my way home from upstate NY. What atreat!
13:13:19 <Betty> bah
13:13:26 <JarnoO> evening Betty
13:13:38 <Betty> evening Jarno
13:17:49 <Betty> Aurum
13:18:05 <Kitt> how did you see Aurum?
13:18:30 <Betty> VEC static
13:18:39 <Betty> hi Kitt
13:18:43 <Kitt> hi
13:18:52 <Ryan> Hi Betty
13:19:02 <Kitt> what between the first and second tree from left?
13:19:07 <Betty> hey Ryan
13:19:19 <Betty> yup
13:19:36 <Kitt> ok
13:20:11 <ynpvisitor74> that rainbow was incredible
13:20:14 <CraigC> the spike is visible
13:20:27 <Betty> you can scroll back the static archive to see it
13:20:42 <LindaG> Kat, a true gazer, did you pull over to watch bee?
13:20:43 <CraigC> sometimes I wonder about using static because of Pump, but this one is clear
13:20:53 <LindaG> CraigC, Betty, hi
13:20:57 <CraigC> hey Linda
13:21:05 <Betty> on Aurum, ynpvisitor74?
13:21:15 <ynpvisitor74> no, on Beehive
13:21:23 <Betty> cool
13:21:30 <ynpvisitor74> Aurum might have had one too, yet we did not see it
13:21:38 <Betty> hi CraigC and LindaG
13:21:52 <ynpvisitor74> nice little crowd at Grand
13:22:11 <Betty> you at Grand now?
13:22:21 <LindaG> Oh I missed aurum
13:22:44 <Betty> was only on static, Linda
13:23:05 <Kitt> but I have to wait until tomorrow to check Aurum
13:23:26 <Betty> you on mobile?
13:23:31 <Kitt> I hadn't used the archive option before
13:23:39 <CraigC> hey Betty
13:26:09 <Betty> you can scroll back just now, Kitt. just hold the cursor on the static cam, hold the crtl key and scroll back with that small wheel on your mouse
13:26:47 <Betty> no idea how it works if you are on a mobile device
13:29:12 <Betty> hey, OF ie
13:30:49 <Betty> bulger ie
13:32:16 <LindaG> Betty, oh ok, thx
13:32:19 <CraigC> and grand
13:32:59 <Betty> wow, tall start
13:33:02 <ynpvisitor74> were they 2 different bulger eruptions?
13:33:07 <LindaG> Nice!
13:33:33 <Betty> I think so, ynpvisitor74
13:33:51 <ynpvisitor74> thanks
13:35:31 <CraigC> OF needs a Long or Short
13:35:45 <ynpvisitor74> it was ie
13:35:50 <ynpvisitor74> so how to tell?
13:36:09 <ynpvisitor74> it only showed up on static at very end
13:36:39 <JarnoO> NPS predicts 1459Β±10m, so solely based on that the last eruption was a long
13:36:56 <ynpvisitor74> OK then
13:37:19 <JarnoO> it's your call, so do what you want with it :)
13:37:26 <ynpvisitor74> not my post
13:37:34 <ynpvisitor74> and Dave has posted thousands I bet
13:37:49 <JarnoO> he knows his stuff
13:37:55 <ynpvisitor74> truly
13:38:02 <CraigC> there was a 5 min gap on static, so can't really determine by how many frames it was ie
13:38:17 <ynpvisitor16> I did not get teh start but only the last minute or so. It looked like a long but I don't have enough data to fill it in.
13:38:21 <ynpvisitor74> Jarno said VEC called it a long
13:38:33 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
13:38:45 <JarnoO> Bulger
13:38:56 <CraigC> I was away, so I didn't see any of it ;)
13:39:27 <JarnoO> I only caught the final jetting, so that's of not much use either
13:39:49 <ynpvisitor74> all the predictions look fine, so it's all good
13:41:19 <JarnoO> Grand approaching 10m
13:41:32 <ynpvisitor74> hopes for a 2nd are dwindling
13:41:37 <JarnoO> b1 done
13:41:48 <ynpvisitor74> come on Grand...
13:41:57 <ynpvisitor74> and cam
13:42:23 <JarnoO> now'd be primetime for a 2nd
13:42:23 <ynpvisitor74> yeah
13:42:25 <JarnoO> 2nd
13:42:27 <Joe> @nd
13:42:52 <ynpvisitor74> freeze frame 2nd better than no 2nd
13:43:07 <ynpvisitor74> no to Lion...
13:43:12 <ynpvisitor74> now to Lion
13:43:15 <JarnoO> 2nd done
13:43:22 <JarnoO> come on 3rd... :P
13:44:04 <ynpvisitor74> 3rds usually happen when 2nd is around 7 or 8 minutes in
13:44:20 <JarnoO> well, that's likely -2Q then... Next time better
13:44:34 <JarnoO> Lion seems to be post-eruptive
13:44:41 <ynpvisitor74> Lion could be post eruptive
13:44:47 <ynpvisitor74> last gasps
13:44:59 <JarnoO> LC ie
13:46:38 <JarnoO> hm, I wonder if the presumably missed eruption was a minor with this steam
13:47:23 <JarnoO> we'll see what happens
13:53:02 <CraigC> Lone Star is in its window :)
13:53:27 <Ryan> Depressin
13:54:26 <Betty> nice catch
13:57:47 <Betty> doggies are gone
14:07:11 <Cooper> Caught 2 BIG fish, lake trout, 1 was 19 inches. The other one was 27in so a good day:)
14:08:10 <Cooper> Don't have any idea how to cook them
14:10:11 <CraigC> you don't catch and release???
14:10:20 <Cooper> I do
14:10:31 <Cooper> I keep 1 per trip
14:10:43 <Cooper> This time I kept the small one
14:11:10 <Cooper> It gives me a nice well earned snack
14:12:31 <Cooper> Craig, so u never keep a fish to munch on
14:13:54 <CraigC> last one I ate was about 25 years ago
14:14:37 <Cooper> That is a long time...
14:14:47 <Cooper> But good for you
14:30:26 <ynpvisitor87> It looked like Improbable was ie earlier ~1424. If anyone could look at the video and verify that would be great.
14:30:43 <JarnoO> was it jetting?
14:31:21 <ynpvisitor87> Maybe just a large boil
14:32:08 <JarnoO> it often does that. Very fun to watch, but just as frustrating to me. Just as you think it will have a proper eruption, it dies down again :(
14:32:31 <ynpvisitor16> Nothing unusual at Improbable.
14:32:32 <ynpvisitor87> More activity than I'm used to seeing there. I guess I'm not positive what technically is an eruption of Improbablye
14:32:55 <ynpvisitor87> Improbable
14:33:33 <JarnoO> thanks #16
14:34:58 <JarnoO> speaking of 'having a proper eruption', Norris seems quite busy today based on YNM. No signs pointing to the boat though
14:39:02 <GO SB(Cooper)> Jarno, I say Boat today, more like this evening
14:39:53 <JarnoO> I'm indeed thinking today or tomorrow (probably before 1200)
14:42:05 <JarnoO> temperature trace for yesterday looked quite good (even a ~45Β°C spike as one of the first recorded ones on 11 October after last week's eruption)
14:44:50 <JarnoO> so far it's been a very nice season, even though Giant decided to quit. Didn't expect to see Dilapidated, nor that Steamboat survived multiple disturbances in a row without an obvious negative effect on subsequent intervals
15:00:54 <GO SB(Cooper)> oh, hi Graham
15:01:06 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
15:01:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello, just got home
15:01:21 <GO SB(Cooper)> did you enjoy NY?
15:01:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> SB tonight or tomorrow most likely ... but who knows
15:01:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> I had a good trip thanks
15:02:06 <JarnoO> good to hear
15:02:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like SB recovery took about the same as the prior eruptions .. unless the frozen sensor hid something
15:02:26 <GO SB(Cooper)> favortie Opera?
15:02:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> it took 4.5h to get back to DC by bus ... cant beat $6 round trip too
15:03:08 <GO SB(Cooper)> that is cheap!!!!
15:03:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> Turandot was great, it is spectacular at the Met. I enjoyed seeing Macbeth too as I hadnt seen that production before
15:03:43 <GO SB(Cooper)> nice
15:04:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> i got the Megabus $1 ticket each way ... then 2.50 bookiing fee and 1.5o fee for Union Station
15:04:17 <GO SB(Cooper)> wow!
15:04:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> are Beverleys still there for SB or have they left?
15:05:26 <JarnoO> Beverlys were in Norris yesterday
15:05:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> they only have 1 ticket that proce and it goes up to about $35 max. still cheaper than the train and not that much longer
15:05:40 <JarnoO> not sure if they're still in Yellowstone today
15:06:32 <JarnoO> Bill Beverly actually observed Steamboat for nearly 4 hours that day
15:07:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice, hope it goes in dAYLIGHT FOR THEM BEFORE THEY LEAVE, WHICH i ASSUME IS SOON
15:07:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> oops... sorry
15:07:23 <JarnoO> gotta love caps lock :P
15:10:15 <GO SB(Cooper)> :daisy:
15:10:47 <JarnoO> a Daisy to welcome Graham back home :)
15:11:09 <GO SB(Cooper)> :)
15:11:21 <GO SB(Cooper)> now we need a Grand welcome to him
15:11:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice view
15:12:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> full moon tonight, but i hope SB waits for daylight
15:14:20 <JarnoO> allows for more comfortable viewing conditions
15:15:17 <GO SB(Cooper)> the one time I got SB, it was in the cold evening thuderous heavy rain, sleet, and hail:( now I need one in sunlight:)
15:18:26 <Ryan> Careful, too much sun and they'll close the basin.
15:18:36 <GO SB(Cooper)> haha
15:19:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> you have to be there tho Cooper ..... when will that be?
15:19:52 <GO SB(Cooper)> next summer(June):( I doubt it will be going still by then
15:19:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> Sorry you got bad timing for SB Ryan
15:20:08 <GO SB(Cooper)> but then again it is at 72, so why not go to 172?:)
15:20:20 <GO SB(Cooper)> well, todays eruptions will be 72
15:20:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have no clue, there hasnt been a period with this level of activity before, so maybe it will continue for years
15:20:51 <GO SB(Cooper)> maybe even long enough for Jarno to see it in person:)
15:21:05 <Ryan> I thjink its very likely to see it next summer.
15:21:18 <Ryan> Maybe not with the same predictability, but who knows
15:21:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> will you be back then Ryan?
15:21:30 <Ryan> Yes
15:21:41 <Ryan> Debating memorial day
15:21:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> :thumbsup:
15:23:10 <GO SB(Cooper)> Ryan, you sounded like my dad there, "What do you want for dinner", "yes"
15:24:04 <Ryan> Haha, well after spending a summer in the park "summer" could be a date.
15:25:03 <CraigC> spending the summer is a good way to be there
15:25:14 <JarnoO> "Is it spring, summer, autumn or winter in the park?", "yes"
15:25:23 <Ryan> I spent the wrong summer there lol
15:25:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> have you bought your place in West yet Craig?
15:25:41 <CraigC> not yet
15:25:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> there is no such thing Ryan
15:25:47 <Ryan> Actually, no, I spent the best one there. I made the best friends of my life there.
15:26:10 <GO SB(Cooper)> Craig, key word there "yet"
15:26:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> 2018 was possibly the best year ever. some years none of the big unusual geysers are active
15:26:59 <CraigC> next summer I think I will test out Madison Campground, though
15:27:32 <Ryan> 2018 was one for the books
15:27:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> shortens the drive, but no hookup
15:27:56 <CraigC> yeah, I'll need to go with 2 full propane tanks
15:28:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> still, every year i have seen something erupt that i have never seen before
15:29:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> who knows what it will be next year
15:29:18 <Ryan> I got several new ones this year: Solstice, Bulgers Hole, Marmot Cave, A0, and Flood as well as several others
15:30:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am hoping for something big in Myriad Group, not much has happened there
15:30:22 <Ryan> I got Mugwump last year
15:30:31 <CraigC> fungoid and Churn were my fave firsts of the lessers
15:30:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bulgers Hole was new for me, Reverse Firehose, Zig Zag Spring
15:31:25 <Ryan> Where are those last two?
15:32:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> I saw Fungoid Steam cloud from Ftn, does that count? Haha
15:33:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> Reverse Firehose is in Sprinkler Group or one of the others there, seen from Fountain
15:33:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> Zig Zag spring is at the edge of the hill at Daisy
15:33:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> small splasher
15:34:05 <Ryan> Ah, theres several I have seen in the Sprinkler/Kal. Groups that I dont know what they are
15:34:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> Reverse Firehose is the biggest thing in the area, its a jet of water like Firehose only angled to the left instead of right
15:35:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, i also saw things in Stalagtite Stalagmite area which is to the left of Clep between it and New Belafontain
15:35:45 <Ryan> Ah, theres something in the Sprinkler Group I saw this time. Big, heavy, boiling surging/jetting.
15:36:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think JSJ always sees something new to him out there
15:37:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> beautiful day in the basin now
15:37:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> 50F - wow
15:38:36 <CraigC> is that a bison by Dome
15:38:57 <CraigC> right by the path?
15:39:17 <Ryan> yup
15:41:22 <Betty> yep
15:42:29 <JarnoO> that's not safe
15:42:50 <Betty> no
15:43:01 <CraigC> same area where the little girl got flung, might be the same bison
15:46:13 <GO SB(Cooper)> people people, stop walking towards Dome, that is quite close
15:46:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> its always hard to tell with the long zoom ... probably not as close as it looks and much further than when the child was charged
15:47:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> but not within the required limits
15:47:36 <Ryan> now that person IS too close
15:47:46 <CraigC> closer than I would be, and closer than I get when I ride my bike out on our Antelope Island that has bison all over
15:48:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, sure looks close to the Dome trail
15:48:46 <CraigC> always watch the tail
15:49:32 <Betty> I canΒ΄t believe they walk by so close
15:49:56 <GO SB(Cooper)> he looks calm for now, but he looks like a fiesty one to me
15:50:47 <GO SB(Cooper)> oh good, tiny little kids now, hope they turn right up there, and not left!
15:59:10 <CraigC> another bison between castle and grotto
15:59:12 <Betty> OT ie
16:01:46 <CraigC> bulger
16:17:58 <Betty> time fo sleep, night all
16:18:08 <JarnoO> night Betty
16:18:12 <GO SB(Cooper)> Betty, night
16:30:45 <JarnoO> OF ie
16:44:23 <GO SB(Cooper)> SB gonna go any time now I think, I bet it is ready
16:45:08 <ynpvisitor86> Or, not :)
16:45:21 <GO SB(Cooper)> too true
16:45:36 <GO SB(Cooper)> Lori S should be there, hope it goes for her
16:45:59 <GO SB(Cooper)> I doubt she would stay overnight for it
16:46:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> its been almost 3 months since we had an interval this short ..... more likely tonight or tomorrow
16:47:12 <GO SB(Cooper)> yeah, true
16:47:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> still under 6 days
16:49:15 <Ryan> guess after this trip I have seen 118 individual geysers.
16:49:57 <Ryan> I count Feather, Giant, Southwest Vents, as individual geysers and "the Platform Vents" as a single one.
16:50:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> hum, i have no list but thats a good number
16:50:30 <Ryan> Ive seen hot periods, and attempted hot periods, without those vents.
16:50:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> even Feather Satellite?
16:50:37 <GO SB(Cooper)> my prediction methods have it around 6.33 Days
16:50:47 <GO SB(Cooper)> so 6D 8H
16:50:55 <GO SB(Cooper)> so tonight/early tommorow
16:51:09 <Ryan> I dont count FS. I count that as a "Platform Vent"
16:51:30 <Ryan> I've seen a "hot period" that was literally just 13 seconds of Feather and nothing else.
16:51:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> definition of hot period is Feather on ... sometimes SW vents dont start
16:52:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> and then there are SW vent solos
16:52:22 <Ryan> oops, 122.
16:52:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think all the other vents need Feather on
16:52:36 <Ryan> Thats why I count the SW VEnts as geysers.
16:52:50 <Ryan> Everything that follows Feather is "The Platform Vents"
16:52:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, ok
16:53:18 <Ryan> Likewise "The Beehive Bubblers"
16:54:14 <Ryan> 130, I keep remembering ones. I am only now making my list lol
16:54:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would probably only count S Bubbler as a geyser
16:54:56 <Ryan> 134
16:54:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> how many Dwarfs?
16:55:00 <Ryan> I count them all as one.
16:55:08 <Ryan> Same with the Dwarfs
16:55:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> they are different tho ...
16:55:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> different ones can be active
16:55:44 <Ryan> 138, probably the same energy/water, different hole.
16:55:48 <Ryan> Like Black Growler.
16:56:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> so Terra Cotta is just one also?
16:56:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Anemone?
16:56:33 <Ryan> No, those are pretty stable systems without much change in the number/location of vents.
16:56:46 <Ryan> The Dwarves have changed
16:57:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> not sure its fair to count Dwarfs as one
16:57:29 <Ryan> there are three pretty permanent ones, I could probably count tghem
16:57:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> lots of changes up around the boardwalk area
16:57:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> how many above Marmot Cave?
16:58:36 <Ryan> Ive noted Slot, Plate, Sponge, and Pump in that area.
16:59:17 <Ryan> theres several on the Hill I havent counted, similar to the Sprinkler/Kaliedoscope groups
16:59:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah the others have been quiet recently
16:59:39 <Ryan> Too many tiny holes to count each one, that would be like counting everything in Percelain basin
16:59:57 <Ryan> brb'
17:02:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think i get to over 50 on Geyser Hill
17:03:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> 2018 added several
17:04:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> does roof count? haha
17:08:54 <GO SB(Cooper)> Hi Michael
17:09:16 <Michael> Hi Cooper
17:18:28 <Michael> :daisy:
17:37:21 <ynpvisitor16> aurum
17:37:57 <Michael> Very nice!
17:38:21 <Michael> (hat-tip to the camera operator)
17:44:03 <GO SB(Cooper)> ok SB, don't you want to be like Aurum and get some eruptive attention?!
17:58:27 <Ryan> I never saw a single Aurum on my trip
18:06:24 <ynpvisitor50> Did you see a double?
18:07:03 <Ryan> no :-(
18:07:23 <ynpvisitor50> Bet you saw a Doublet.
18:08:12 <Ryan> I saw it thump lol
18:08:18 <Ryan> Old Tardy
18:29:27 <GO SB(Cooper)> That some good grass buddy?
18:29:41 <GO SB(Cooper)> nono, I do not eat grass
18:29:48 <GO SB(Cooper)> you keep it all to yourself
18:30:03 <GO SB(Cooper)> I would take a Bison Burger right now
18:30:12 <GO SB(Cooper)> oops did not mean to insult you
18:30:32 <GO SB(Cooper)> Wow, I am having a 1 sided conversation with a Bison aren't I
18:59:00 <GO SB(Cooper)> bbl
19:40:28 <ynpvisitor22> OF
19:40:49 <ynpvisitor22> Really pretty with the sunset!
19:45:52 <ynpvisitor16> that was the moon rise
19:47:12 <ynpvisitor22> WOw
19:47:35 <ynpvisitor16> it was neat
20:41:35 <ynpvisitor111> Riverside looks steamy
20:44:07 <ynpvisitor26> Yes, it does.
20:46:55 <ynpvisitor26> Strange interval. 10.5 hours doesn't work out nicely no matter how you slice it.
20:47:31 <ynpvisitor111> Is it enough steam for the temp?
20:48:01 <GO SB(Cooper)> Goodnight Everone
20:48:29 <ynpvisitor26> I think so. I think Riverside is just showing us it's not always so regular.
20:58:34 <ynpvisitor111> Looks done now.
20:59:09 <ynpvisitor111> Kevin must still be sleeping. Think he knows the race was rained out?
21:35:53 <ynpvisitor26> Daisy ie
21:53:00 <ynpvisitor26> Castle, near-start I think.
22:44:07 <ynpvisitor26> OF
