07:14:27 <Rice> What is the signifigance of Tilt's baby being Empty, I see that posted a lot in GT?
07:14:40 <CraigC> that it erupted

07:15:42 <Dave from B™> It is usually empty for 45 minutes or so; I believe
07:17:46 <CraigC> depression maybe?
07:17:59 <CraigC> mc
07:19:06 <CraigC> nope, actually a different vent that was strong
07:19:15 <Kat> Do you see depressiojn water?
07:19:32 <Kat> depression*
07:19:39 <CraigC> no, it is steam from that vent to the left
07:19:52 <Kat> Thats what I thought
07:20:15 <CraigC> not that far left
07:25:11 <Kat> :)
07:30:03 <CraigC> is that one of The Dwarfs maybe?

07:54:28 <LindaG> Kat, hi there!
07:54:34 <Kat> It's cold out there!
07:54:58 <LindaG> Sure looks nippy
07:55:12 <Kat> I'd say!
07:55:56 <LindaG> I like looking at it, but not being out in it.
07:57:41 <Kat> I actually like Yellowstone winters

08:02:55 <Kevin L0153🌵> Being very tied after looking over a bunch of legal papers all weekend.
08:04:29 <Kat> Hey - I transported again!
08:04:57 <Kevin L™🌵> All lawyers should be beaten, flogged, and used to fill old mine pits.
08:05:32 <Kat> Hahaha
08:07:41 <Kat> Wild looking basin
08:10:01 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 😊 oh and we were just getting started guessing what it stood for. 😉
08:16:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Me too!
08:18:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Had a really strange thing happen this weekend. Got an envelope from one of Dad's hospitals. I wondered how much more they wanted. They had done and audit and we overpaid. It was a refund check! That is a new one.
08:19:10 <Kat> The hoarfrost is beautiful!
08:19:18 <Kat> Kevin L™🌵, Thats a firsxt!
08:19:24 <Kat> first*

08:55:37 <Eric> and Linda
08:55:50 <Kat> Hi Eric
08:56:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi

08:56:13 <LindaGt> Katie, oh hi,didnt see you co e in
08:56:17 <Eric> Hi Kevin
08:56:25 <LindaGt> *come
08:56:39 <Kat> It was 2 degrees - it's warming up! HAHA
08:57:22 <Eric> Nice...balmy 4 :-D
08:57:45 <Eric> We are coming up on the BH sweet spot
09:00:37 <Kat> Yep
09:00:38 <LindaGt> Off to chiropractor, bbl
09:01:01 <Kat> Have fun - if Bee goes - we will send text!
09:05:36 <Eric> Happy adjusting Linda :-D
09:08:19 <Dave from B™> So, another day before water starts oozing from SB?
09:19:45 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:19:59 <Dave from B™> Good morning, Eric
09:20:21 <Dave from B™> I hope you time your Winter Expedition so Graham can be in the park at the same time
09:22:44 <Kat> Still can't see much down basin
09:23:56 <Eric> haha...maybe :-D It's going to be a while before I can afford all the winter gear necessary!
09:25:54 <Eric> But I did just get a satellite locator beacon/messenger
09:26:07 <Eric> So I can txt/ping/sos from anywhere in the world.
09:26:33 <Eric> OF
09:26:36 <Eric> ?
09:26:52 <Eric> Guess it was just preplay
09:27:10 <Dave from B™> Eric, it is fun watching you do all your adventures
09:27:11 <Kat> Pre=play
09:27:59 <Eric> Glad you are enjoying them Dave....they are amazing to take on. I am trying to grow as a hiker with longer hikes.
09:28:11 <Kat> pre-play*
09:31:38 <Kat> OF up close
09:31:54 <ynpvisitor16> will "we" be able to track you online with your device? I followed the Tom Murphy winter trek
09:33:27 <Eric> Haha...possibly 16 Not sure if I will make it that public :-P
09:33:28 <Kat> Wrong - not OF, just more pre-play
09:35:41 <ynpvisitor16> I have heard of people checking on their parents in YNP. They could tell when they changed campsites!
09:36:00 <Dave from B™> I thought we were getting 24/7 drone coverage
09:37:08 <Eric> OF
09:37:10 <Eric> for sure
09:37:34 <Kat> Yep
09:38:19 <Eric> Yep, my wife really wanted me to have an emergency out for my long hikes. Most of the time I have no cellular coverage.
09:39:06 <Kat> Deleted BSB
09:42:49 <Kat> deleted based on Kitts note
09:49:08 <Dave from B™> Eric, it is especially important if you are flying solo
10:03:37 <ynpvisitor40> Colter did not have one.
10:04:40 <ynpvisitor40> Kevin, did you have to put a jacket on the lime tree? I keep reading the weather nerds saying something like 21/27th of the USA is freezing.
10:10:09 <Cooper> No Bee yet
10:12:02 <ynpvisitor40> no daisy, no grand, no nothing.
10:12:22 <Katie> Patience, rabbit. Patience.
10:13:15 <Cooper> Haha Katie
10:13:19 <Cooper> Hi Michael
10:13:54 <Michael> Hi Cooper
10:19:00 <Katie> Daisy
10:19:07 <Michael> Daisy
10:22:21 <Michael> Grand and Beehive up next, I hope.
10:22:54 <Katie> And now that Daisy has played, we can have the Grand to Beehive view. That was cooperative of Daisy. :)
10:26:55 <Eric> We are in an Aurum window too!
10:28:50 <ynpvisitor40> Most likely, with no Kevin
10:29:08 <Eric> I think that is a requirement :-P
10:30:18 <ynpvisitor40> Well, enjoy, time for me to go
10:32:41 <Katie> Lion looks like it might be warming up, too.
10:35:00 <Cooper> C'mon Bee
10:35:53 <Eric> aren't you skiing or something?
10:36:03 <Cooper> Eric, School
10:36:09 <Cooper> Skiing was yesterday
10:36:18 <Eric> ahh
10:36:25 <Cooper> we are working on a project..
10:36:36 <Cooper> but I finished it on Friday.
10:36:46 <Katie> Turban?
10:36:50 <Katie> Hard to gell
10:36:55 <Katie> *tell
10:39:25 <Cooper> sadly we do not get veterans day off
10:39:45 <Eric> Bummer
10:39:47 <Katie> Is your school doing anything to observe Veteran's Day?
10:39:49 <Eric> Me either
10:42:18 <Katie> I have a suspicion Grand is going to go during next OF window.
10:42:24 <Cooper> Katie, nope....
10:42:30 <Katie> And maybe Lion, too
10:42:44 <Cooper> they say "observed in school" as an exuse to have us have school
10:42:51 <Cooper> they have not talked about it once today!
10:43:15 <Cooper> They don't talk about Veterans Day, but they let us watch the mercury transit. Sad.
10:43:37 <Katie> 11:00 would be the ideal time to have an observation.
10:48:30 <Cooper> ITS SCIENCE TIME!
11:08:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow, no Bee. It will wait until I leave again.
11:20:23 <Betty> hi all
11:20:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Guten hello.
11:21:03 <Betty> I´m here, BH can go now
11:21:11 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
11:21:14 <Betty> OF
11:21:14 <Eric> Hi Betty
11:21:20 <Eric> How about OF instead?
11:21:21 <Betty> hi Eric
11:21:36 <Betty> a geyser is a geyser
11:21:37 <Eric> Grand ie :-(
11:21:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I suppose OF beats nothing.
11:21:53 <Eric> doesn't beat grand
11:21:56 <Betty> have you seen one, have you seen all
11:22:10 <Eric> If you have seen one, you have seen all :-P
11:22:21 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
11:23:09 <Betty> absolutely no difference between LC and SB
11:23:41 <Eric> Not if you are an couldn't see the top of either one!
11:23:46 <Michael> :)
11:24:13 <Eric> Wish I was hiking in the park today! What a beautiful day.
11:24:26 <Betty> hey Michael
11:24:38 <Betty> yes, pretty nice today
11:24:45 <Eric> can we spin to grand?
11:24:58 <Eric> maybe catch the end
11:24:59 <Michael> Hi Betty.
11:25:56 <Michael> Must be burst 3 wrapping up now.
11:26:15 <Eric> I hope so...for Kitt :-D
11:26:23 <Betty> I´ll buy that
11:26:27 <Eric> and Steve
11:26:45 <CraigC> Eric,
11:27:11 <Betty> hi Craig
11:27:31 <CraigC> hye Betty
11:27:32 <Eric> Nice Craig...Columbia is offering a similar deal today
11:27:33 <CraigC> hey
11:27:39 <ynpvisitor16> it was 1 burst
11:28:10 <CraigC> isnt Mtn Hardware better than Columbia?
11:29:08 <CraigC> bulger
11:32:44 <CraigC> report that bulgers hole filled
11:35:05 <Eric> They are different Craig...I would not put any single company over another for every product
11:35:11 <Dave from B™> Who filled it?
11:35:12 <Eric> There goes Steve and Kitt :-D
11:35:45 <Eric> How in the world did they get into the park during admin time?
11:35:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Is your dentist down there Dave?
11:36:15 <Eric> Steve must be doing something "official" :-D
11:36:27 <ynpvisitor16> dog sitting Eric
11:36:55 <Eric> Nice!
11:37:01 <ynpvisitor16> add a comma there - dog sitting, Eric
11:37:25 <Eric> Glad they could make it in.
11:38:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Craig, that movie with Hamilton Burger from Perry Mason where he plays an evil crook is on TCM this weekend. Well worth watching. Called "The Hitch Hiker".
11:40:10 <Eric> Wow...bulger seems to be filling every time
11:40:15 <Eric> or partially filling
11:41:18 <Eric> Ohh, I didn't even realize Mountain Hardwear was a portland company :-P
11:42:00 <Michael> A few days ago I think they caught a Bulger's Hole solo eruption.
11:42:34 <Eric> wow...that would be unusual Michael
11:42:54 <Eric> Lion is ready to go
11:43:31 <Eric> 8 series Lion yesterday...impressive!
11:43:43 <Eric> No wonder it is sleeping so long
11:44:56 <Eric> They hear it roaring too :-D
11:45:21 <Michael> Yeah, that was definitely a new behavior from the Bulger system. Geysers are fickle creatures...
11:47:03 <Eric> That hole is interesting, because it definitely has been changing it's physical makeup and it's behaviors
11:47:18 <Eric> The throat looks pretty clear now in the hole.
11:47:44 <Eric> Much different than the sandy bottom I saw last spring
11:48:02 <Eric> ctc?
11:48:10 <Eric> boils on BH
11:48:42 <Katie> Pump
11:48:45 <Katie> (up the jam)
11:57:37 <Betty> lol, Katie
11:58:08 <Betty> I see Steve and Kitt are on the hill
11:58:37 <Eric> :thumbsup:
12:01:40 <Michael> Aurum
12:01:43 <Michael> .
12:01:44 <Michael> .
12:01:46 <Katie> :aurum:
12:01:54 <Betty> woot
12:01:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. It is early
12:02:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I was just standing up to leave.
12:02:15 <LindaG> Nice
12:02:22 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, me too
12:02:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck with BH
12:02:42 <Eric> ohh, Kevin saw it!
12:03:37 <LindaG> Short but sweet
12:23:21 <Betty> OT ie
12:32:59 <Michael> Hi Daisy.
12:43:50 <Eric> looks like ctc
12:44:00 <Eric> OF ie
12:44:04 <Betty> OFie
12:44:18 <Eric> start 1241 or 1242
12:44:29 <Eric> according to static timestamp
12:44:39 <Katie> My alarm for window opening was going off just as Eric said it.
12:44:53 <Eric> went before window Katie
12:45:31 <Eric> Pretty sure it's long this time...
12:45:46 <Michael> Static timestamp is usually off by a few minutes, I wouldn't trust it for fine details.
12:46:07 <Eric> seems like they have updated it Micahel
12:46:09 <Eric> Michael
12:46:31 <Katie> I use static rollback (-minutes) and real time when I have to enter from static.
12:46:48 <Michael> OK, thanks for the info. I hadn't checked in a while.
12:46:51 <Eric> I think the timestamp is pretty accurate now
12:47:39 <Katie> I entered as 12:41 - better to have next prediction a minute early than a minute late.
12:50:07 <Eric> Sounds good...maybe Kitt will have an in basin time
12:50:36 <Eric> They might have gone in for lunch though
12:56:14 <Cooper> LC
12:56:18 <Cooper> no bee yet
12:56:41 <Katie> Good height on LC
12:58:53 <Cooper> nothing is going right for me today: I walk into doors, froget my water bottle at home, froget my lunch at home, drop paper everywear, spill Copper all over the place!
13:00:48 <Dave from B™> Cooper, there is always tomorrow
13:01:21 <Michael> What sort of copper? One of the pretty blue solutions, or just a jar full of pennies?
13:01:22 <Betty> hi Dave from B™ and Cooper
13:01:38 <Cooper> H iBetty
13:01:59 <Cooper> Copper crystals, and copper pellets
13:02:39 <Cooper> I spilled 100 little round copper pellets that were 1 mm diametter
13:03:04 <Michael> That sounds like a lot of trouble to sweep them all up.
13:03:38 <Michael> Before someone goes roller-skating on them...
13:04:04 <Cooper> haha
13:04:57 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
13:05:40 <Michael> I was famous for a little while in 7th grade for knocking a hot plate over onto the floor and melting the carpet.
13:06:13 <Betty> lol
13:07:14 <Cooper> haha
13:08:49 <Cooper> NOT AGAIn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My popcorn exploded in the microwave
13:09:15 <Cooper> Everything, and everyone is against me!
13:09:39 <Betty> you just need to focus on one thing
13:09:40 <Katie> Good planning, Cooper - you are getting it all out of the way today. :)
13:09:50 <Cooper> haha
13:11:22 <Cooper> Betty, if I focus on one thing, that thingand everything else breaks, if I focus on other things both things break!
13:13:33 <Dave from B™> I agree, Betty. Multi tasking is usua;l;y not the way to go
13:13:34 <Betty> hmm, no idea then :-)
13:13:57 <Betty> unless you are female ;-)
13:14:34 <Dave from B™> Studies have shown; especially as you get older, that multi-tasking actually wastes time
13:14:45 <Betty> yep
13:15:15 <Cooper> Betty, no, I am not a female
13:15:18 <Cooper> Lion
13:15:23 <Betty> but when you are young (and female) it works
13:15:35 <Dave from B™> I love the initial start
13:15:53 <Betty> nice
13:16:01 <Dave from B™> It lloks like my wife trying to get out of bed in the takes awhile:)
13:21:31 <Dave from B™> I love GH views with the river in them. What a great shot
13:21:48 <Betty> yeah
13:25:55 <Betty> bubblers
13:27:14 <Dave from B™> Time to go take a dog to the vet and then finish working at home. Have a great evening everyone!
13:27:41 <Betty> bye Dave
13:28:15 <Michael> Bye Dave.
13:32:04 <Betty> LC
13:32:47 <Betty> hi Lori
13:33:03 <🌲Lori S> Hi Betty
13:37:35 <Betty> good splashes
13:37:45 <Katie> yup
13:38:00 <Betty> last 2 BH were surprising
13:38:27 <Michael> Can't let it out of our sight for long today.
13:41:37 <Katie> BSB
13:42:26 <🌲Lori S> splashy
13:42:58 <Betty> are those sticks to the left new?
13:43:29 <🌲Lori S> Betty, I was wondering the same
13:43:43 <🌲Lori S> Sensors of some sort?
13:43:57 <Betty> never noticed before
13:44:09 <Betty> maybe
13:44:18 <🌲Lori S> Me either. Which makes me think they are new.
13:44:37 <Michael> Indy
13:44:37 <ynpvisitor67> indi?
13:44:38 <🌲Lori S> *newish
13:44:49 <Katie> Yup Indy
13:44:57 <Betty> woot
13:45:14 <Katie> text sent
13:45:30 <Betty> cool
13:45:36 <Cooper> thanks for email/text
13:45:42 <LindaG> Yay indy
13:45:49 <🌲Lori S> Honestly, I just got on here at random.
13:45:49 <Casey> Thanks for the text
13:45:52 <LindaG> Thx for txt
13:45:54 <Cooper> Hi Lori!
13:46:03 <Katie> you're welcome. :)
13:46:04 <🌲Lori S> Hi Cooper! Hi Linda!
13:46:15 <ynpvisitor114> why does my stream never load?
13:46:20 <LindaG> 🌲Lori S, hello lori hello
13:46:28 <Katie> what browser are you using, 114?
13:46:33 <ynpvisitor114> chrom
13:46:35 <Eric> :heart::heart::heart::heart:
13:46:36 <ynpvisitor114> chrome
13:46:45 <Katie> if Chrome, click the lock on URL bar, and allow Flash
13:46:59 <Katie> then reload (there will be a reload button)
13:47:29 <🌲Lori S> Now that the gang's all here. Are those 2 "sticks" left of Bee new?
13:47:32 <Betty> hey EmilyW
13:47:42 <🌲Lori S> Hi Emily
13:47:47 <Cooper> Hi Emily
13:47:49 <Eric> I don't see any sticks
13:47:55 <EmilyW> fixed
13:47:58 <EmilyW> now i can see bee
13:48:00 <Katie> The sticks are hiding in the steam right now.
13:48:11 <Eric> ahhh, maybe research?
13:48:50 <🌲Lori S> They are about the height of the sensors that were at Steamboat
13:49:15 <Cooper> Bee is much more fun than adding chemical equations
13:49:24 <Eric> Maybe fishynp is in the park doing some more sensing
13:49:44 <🌲Lori S> Bee is much more fun than many things ;)
13:49:52 <Eric> Jimbo around today?
13:50:00 <Michael> If it is research-related, could be sticks holding the logger in place.
13:50:00 <EmilyW> agreed there kcooper
13:50:04 <Cooper> that it is:D
13:50:16 <Katie> No elements today. Periodic table completely absent.
13:50:32 <Eric> I was trying to find the most potent, non-super-dangerous chemical reaction, for heating water.
13:50:35 <Katie> Except for Cooper's spilled Copper..
13:50:40 <Eric> looking for max enthropy
13:50:45 <Cooper> Katie, haha
13:50:55 <Cooper> Bee :):):):):):):):):)
13:50:58 <EmilyW> diluting concentraed acid
13:51:06 <Eric> BH
13:51:32 <Cooper> I will still have time to finish my chemical equations! YAY! Good Bee
13:51:44 <Eric> I would like a dry power I can add to a liter of water to bring it close to boiling.
13:51:58 <LindaG> Whooohooo
13:52:14 <Eric> So pretty
13:52:17 <EmilyW> dry powder?
13:52:44 <Eric> versus a liquid additive
13:52:46 <Cooper> Helol Lidna:p:pThe spelling errroors were/rae on purpose:p:p
13:52:54 <Eric> or a paste
13:53:01 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
13:53:02 <Eric> rainbow on static
13:53:06 <🌲Lori S> I would like a hair-growing tonic.
13:53:10 <EmilyW> does such a substance exist thats not dangerous?
13:53:13 <Michael> I think Drano releases a lot of heat when it dissolves. Wouldn't want to be near the boiling water, though.
13:53:23 <Katie> I'd like a hair growing tonic, too.
13:53:44 <Eric> Yep, you can use Potassium permanganate & Sugar
13:53:48 <🌲Lori S> EmilyW, He didn't say non-dangerous ;)
13:54:14 <Eric> Has pretty good enthropy
13:54:33 <Eric> Still very nice static rainbow from BH
13:54:47 <LindaG> It does look nice
13:54:48 <Eric> wish static was slightly left
13:54:48 <Cooper> Eric, yup
13:55:01 <EmilyW> because it oxidixes like every atom on the sugar
13:55:09 <Cooper> Maybe when Graham goes in Janurary he can hit it with a stick and move it left
13:55:09 <Eric> Wow...rainbow almost stretching over OF
13:55:23 <🌲Lori S> Cooper, hahaha
13:55:58 <EmilyW> what about just using a stove :)
13:56:20 <🌲Lori S> EmilyW, Where's the fun in that?
13:56:35 <Cooper> well, good Bee, back to my science
13:56:36 <EmilyW> its safe and relatively cheap
13:56:51 <🌲Lori S> Bye Cooper
13:56:57 <Katie> And it is a chemical reaction. ;)
13:57:08 <Eric> But much more difficult and heavier when backpacking in sub-zero temps.
13:57:13 <EmilyW> yes! somewhere, combustion is coccuring
13:57:35 <Eric> I don't plan on drinking the water, just want to heat it.
13:57:36 <Betty> that made my day, I´m out too. Have a great day all
13:57:39 <EmilyW> Eric, i dont think you could really find something safe
13:57:44 <EmilyW> oh
13:57:44 <Michael> See you, Betty.
13:57:48 <🌲Lori S> Eric, Ahhh. So this needs to be something that won't freeze
13:57:50 <Katie> Have a good night, Betty.
13:58:02 <Eric> by safe, I mean non-corrosive or super toxic to plant life
13:58:07 <🌲Lori S> Bye Betty
13:58:49 <🌲Lori S> Eric, So, you need hot water in winter in Yellowstone. Hmmm.
13:58:51 <Eric> Like I think the Potassium permanganate wouldn't be bad...just seeing if there was anything with more entropy
13:59:00 <Katie> Riverside
13:59:13 <EmilyW> you could get hydroxide pellots easy
13:59:39 <EmilyW> they do degrade though
14:01:55 <Eric> Thanks Emily
14:02:15 <Eric> Anyone else have frozen video?
14:02:38 <🌲Lori S> I'm good. For now.
14:02:44 <EmilyW> are you worried about the fuel from a stove freezing? Because my family has these tiny stoves that woek
14:02:59 <Katie> I'm streaming fine, Eric
14:03:13 <EmilyW> sory eric you got me going!
14:03:15 <Chancellor> ok here
14:03:27 <EmilyW> I am good here
14:03:56 <Eric> No...the weight of fuel to boil water seems like it would be heavier than the weight to carry chemicals.
14:04:18 <Eric> I am looking at warming a water bottle to put in my sleeping bag at night :-D
14:04:36 <EmilyW> i think you would need a lot chemicals to do it
14:05:32 <Eric> That might be the case Emily....but like those oxidizing hand warmers can get pretty hot for fairly long periods of time.
14:05:43 <EmilyW> yes those do
14:06:06 <Katie> They make "pillow" sized oxidizing warmers - like the hand warmers
14:06:30 <Eric> It would be ideal if the water just kept slowly reacting over an 6-8hour period to keep the water warm/hot.
14:06:36 <EmilyW> I am just thinking of when I recently was making some concentrated nitric acid
14:06:48 <Eric> Just using the water as a solution to distribute the heat.
14:07:39 <EmilyW> distribute heat where?
14:07:55 <Katie> Sleeping bag, I presume...
14:08:27 <EmilyW> oh
14:08:29 <Eric> Yes, inside a sleeping bag
14:08:34 <EmilyW> your body is great at doing that
14:08:45 <EmilyW> stays warm for hours
14:09:40 <Eric> At -30 degrees, you don't always have a perfect system for containing that heat. At those temps, many people use warm/hot water to help.
14:09:59 <EmilyW> i see
14:10:09 <Eric> I am talking extremes here....not your everyday camping trip :-D
14:10:30 <EmilyW> what about just using the hand warmers you mentioned?
14:10:35 <Eric> I have to step out for a back in a bit.
14:10:55 <🌲Lori S> My image is now frozen...
14:11:06 <🌲Lori S> Oh, wait, there it is
14:11:07 <Eric> You could definitely use them...but was looking for an alternative approach
14:11:13 <🌲Lori S> Bye Eric
14:11:16 <Eric> anyway...brb
14:18:44 <Michael> OF
14:25:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I told you.
14:26:24 <Katie> You were here for Aurum, though, weren't you, Kevin?
14:26:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.
14:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I went out to get my free Famous Dave's BBQ lunch for Veterans.
14:27:59 <Katie> Thank you for your service.
14:28:08 <Kevin L™🌵> YW
14:29:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Great Lion start.
14:34:09 <Eric> Yep, to all the Veterans here...thank you!
14:44:37 <Joe> Daisy
14:51:09 <Joe1> today's Aurum
14:53:13 <Joe> Both the control and public stream are horribly choppy, I hope the reboot something before we lose everything
14:53:52 <Joe> the=they *
14:54:13 <Eric> Yes, thought it was down a few times.
14:55:20 <Kevin L™🌵> It is lousy here too
14:56:58 <LindaG> Eric, Patagonia is having 50% off sale. They have a capiline pullover on sale. You should take a look.
14:57:27 <LindaG> *capilene
14:59:12 <Eric> Thanks Linda
14:59:23 <Eric> Seems like all the outdoor clothing stores are having sales today
15:00:02 <LindaG> Capilene is supposed to be good base layer
15:00:34 <🌲Lori S> Black Friday has sprawled out to Halloween.
15:00:44 <LindaG> I usually buy something when its half off.
15:07:31 <Eric> I need some new backpacking rain pant shells...but their torrentshell gets some pretty hideous reviews :-( Pretty decent deal at $50 though
15:10:58 <GO BULGER.S HOL> $50 isnt a good deal if it leaks
15:11:13 <GO BULGER.S HOL> i need rain pants too, my current ones are falling apart
15:11:30 <Eric>'s garbage if it leaks
15:11:46 <Eric> Nice reflections on lake today
15:12:00 <Eric> I do like the higher zippered sides
15:12:09 <GO BULGER.S HOL> and the Marmots I bought the zipper jammed on 2nd use and i couldnt fix it .. that got returned fast
15:12:34 <Eric> My marmots worked ok until I ripped out the butt hitting rocks when glissading :-P
15:12:35 <🌲Lori S> One word: wool.
15:12:37 <Eric> Not their fault
15:12:54 <Eric> Wool doesn't work so well for waterproof pants :-P
15:13:06 <🌲Lori S> Wool stays warm when wet.
15:13:20 <Eric> But you gotta believe my feet are always encased in wool
15:13:33 <Eric> There you go...don't get wet!
15:13:34 <🌲Lori S> :thumbsup:
15:14:15 <🌲Lori S> If youy are skiing and you fall in a creek, wool is your best friend.
15:14:40 <Eric> Ski lessons might be a better friend :-D
15:15:03 <Eric> But I hear ya...might feet have been soaked and still perfectly dry
15:15:07 <Eric> perfectly warm
15:15:09 <Eric> not dry
15:15:17 <Joe> fall is a four letter word :)
15:15:58 <🌲Lori S> Joe, indeed
15:15:59 <Joe> as bad as other four letter words
15:16:06 <Katie> Yup, wool is still warm when wet
15:16:24 <🌲Lori S> Listen to the Monatna folks, Eric. :)
15:16:31 <🌲Lori S> Montana*
15:17:06 <🌲Lori S> And the animals with fur.
15:18:03 <🌲Lori S> Okay, I'm a transplant, but still..
15:18:29 <Eric> Haha....Lots of people have opinions about gear :-D
15:19:16 <🌲Lori S> My opinion is if you stay inside under a warm blanket drinking cocoa, you don't need any gear. LOL
15:19:28 <ynpvisitor16> I have heavy wool pants - they work great even in a blizzard
15:20:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a pair of cotton shorts that works in winters here...
15:20:32 <🌲Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, :lol:
15:20:59 <Eric> Yes, things that work in montana...don't work very well in our wet, wet west coast.
15:21:11 <🌲Lori S> Question. Is Firehole Lake Drive part of LGB, MGB, or neither?
15:21:18 <Eric> LGB
15:21:39 <🌲Lori S> Thanks, Eric
15:21:58 <🌲Lori S> Working on our website..
15:24:28 <Eric> I am pretty sure Great Fountain is considered in LGB
15:25:33 <Eric> Yep, confirmed in GoY
15:25:53 <🌲Lori S> Well, I titled the page "Geyser Basins of the Firehole" so I am just making sure it is one.
15:26:11 <🌲Lori S> Officially, I mean. GoY is official for sure.
15:37:30 <🌲Lori S> Castle
15:39:53 <GO BULGER.S HOL> Lion may have gone too ..
15:39:55 <GO BULGER.S HOL> too busy
15:41:59 <GO BULGER.S HOL> looks like a nice day
16:04:23 <Katie> releasing control
16:13:18 <ynpvisitor101> Cooper here, on the way to get flu shot
16:13:41 <🌲Lori S> That reminds me, now that I am better, I need one of those too.
16:14:03 <ynpvisitor101> Hi Lori, yes, yes you should get one
16:14:27 <ynpvisitor101> Before I burry you in a coffin:p
16:14:39 <ynpvisitor101> Lot of germs down there:p
16:14:44 <ynpvisitor101> Hi linda
16:14:51 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, hi
16:15:02 <ynpvisitor101> Cooper here
16:15:16 <ynpvisitor101> LindaG, u got your flu shot yet
16:15:18 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, yup I saw
16:15:32 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, I've never had one
16:15:40 <ynpvisitor101> Oh
16:15:52 <ynpvisitor101> You get the flu ever
16:16:11 <🌲Lori S> There you go trying to bury me again, Cooper
16:16:11 <ynpvisitor101> Because if I do not get the shot I will get it 5 times!!
16:16:18 <ynpvisitor101> 🌲Lori S, :D
16:16:20 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, 2 yrs ago before that was like 15 yrs
16:16:27 <ynpvisitor101> Wow
16:16:30 <ynpvisitor101> Lucky
16:16:56 <LindaG> One year long time ago inhad it twice in one winter
16:17:11 <ynpvisitor101> :thumbsup:
16:17:13 <LindaG> *once a long time
16:17:18 <Eric> Lake static is so pretty today
16:17:22 <🌲Lori S> LindaG, I never got one until last fall. My doc finally talked me into it. For the first time ever, I NEVER got sick all winter.
16:17:40 <LindaG> 🌲Lori S, I'm chicken
16:17:42 <GO BULGER.S HOL> got distracted but have the cam now
16:18:06 <🌲Lori S> LindaG, Don't be. No g=big deal.
16:18:09 <Eric> Reflections of the Absaroka range
16:18:09 <Katie> ha ha. I just logged in and grabbed. Released again
16:18:18 <ynpvisitor101> Linda, you should be in Kevin's backyard. Cluck:p:p
16:18:22 <ynpvisitor101> Well, bbl
16:18:34 <🌲Lori S> Bye flu shot boy
16:18:49 <🌲Lori S> Eric, Indeed, very glassy looking lake
16:19:12 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, bye
16:20:20 <🌲Lori S> Off to walk doggo. BBL
16:33:42 <Cooper> All done
16:38:28 <Cooper> That was a quick walk
16:38:59 <Cooper> Wb Lori
16:39:05 <🌲Lori S> Just a quick outside. I'll be back home in a couple hours to actually take him on a walk
16:39:30 <Cooper> So you bring him to work with you
16:39:54 <🌲Lori S> No. I live a block away
16:40:36 <Cooper> Ok, nice
16:47:05 <ynpvisitor24> Well I am home, be back in about 15 mins
16:47:20 <ynpvisitor24> Cooper here, it lost my name
16:48:23 <LindaG> Better find it
16:49:21 <LindaG> Arty starting looks like
16:49:54 <GO BULGER.S HOL> yes on Artie
16:51:12 <LindaG> Entered
16:56:17 <🌲Lori S> Could we zoom in briefly on the "sticks" to the left of Bee?
16:57:00 <🌲Lori S> (I'm on delay)
16:57:03 <GO BULGER.S HOL> want to watch for Daisy
16:57:20 <🌲Lori S> Oh, I'm still on Geyser Hiil
16:57:27 <🌲Lori S> Perhaps later
16:59:28 <ynpvisitor84> Can we have a peak on the sticks left of Bee?
17:00:09 <🌲Lori S> ynpvisitor84, waiting for Daisy
17:00:46 <🌲Lori S> ...and Grand I guess
17:12:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Did Graham break the cam?
17:14:18 <ynpvisitor15> it needs a reboot osomething or everything
17:15:02 <Kevin L™🌵> An AR-15 adjustment?
17:15:11 <🌲Lori S> Whacked with a stick?
17:15:48 <ynpvisitor42> raven dive bomb adjustments
17:16:00 <Cooper> Lori, he is going to do that with the static cam in winter, remember?
17:16:02 <Cooper> 42, ROFL
17:19:00 <Eric> The static cam is inside the VEC
17:19:11 <Eric> Wow...washburn North!
17:19:46 <Cooper> Snowy: With a nice sun split!
17:19:52 <LindaG> Wow...lake
17:19:57 <Kevin L™🌵> That is good Eric
17:20:12 <Eric> Never seen the sun like that before on washburn!
17:20:32 <Cooper> WOW LAKE!
17:20:40 <Eric> or is that the moon?
17:21:21 <Eric> Nice cloud reflect in the lake
17:21:25 <LindaG> Cooper, hey stop steak g my lines. Lol 😉
17:21:43 <LindaG> Yikes...stealing
17:21:47 <Cooper> stop steak g?
17:21:51 <Cooper> haha
17:21:54 <LindaG> I have cooperitis
17:21:55 <🌲Lori S> Eric, Well, since it's a NE view, I would guess moon. :)
17:21:57 <Cooper> Yike... stealing:p
17:22:14 <LindaG> Cooper, 😊
17:22:18 <Eric> That is crazy bright moon!
17:22:34 <Eric> That's what hit me Lori...wrong direction for the sun :-P
17:22:38 <🌲Lori S> Off to go look outside
17:22:39 <LindaG> I'm thinking moon
17:22:45 <Cooper> ok
17:23:16 <LindaG> 99% tonight
17:23:43 <GO BULGER.S HOL> sorry had to make a run to the pharmacy
17:23:46 <Eric> For the record...this is the view I was wowing over:
17:24:14 <Eric> washburn NE is still looking cool
17:25:00 <Eric> moon rising over OF
17:25:01 <🌲Lori S> Not high enough in sky here yet
17:25:11 <🌲Lori S> But, look above OF!
17:25:28 <LindaG> It will all look
17:25:42 <🌲Lori S> Would be a great night at Norris id SB were due
17:25:45 <LindaG> Excellent in a little while
17:25:48 <🌲Lori S> if
17:26:15 <Eric> That has got to be the brightest moon I have ever seen on the cam
17:26:17 <LindaG> Good night for moon geysers
17:26:41 <Kevin L™🌵> OF is mooning us.
17:26:50 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, lol
17:27:06 <🌲Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, :thumbsup:
17:27:08 <Cooper> Kevin L™🌵, disgusting
17:27:13 <Cooper> :p
17:27:35 <🌲Lori S> Holy crap that Washburn NE just keeps getting better
17:27:41 <LindaG> Dont want cooper tender ears to hear that
17:27:56 <Cooper> LindaG, I do not have tender ears:p
17:28:07 <LindaG> Cooper, lol
17:28:29 <Eric> All young adults think that Cooper :-D
17:28:38 <Cooper> haha
17:28:50 <Cooper> OF
17:28:57 <Eric> Believe me...having tender ears is good!
17:29:06 <Cooper> :)
17:29:07 <LindaG> Washburn will look awesome once sun sets
17:29:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Now this is cool.
17:29:23 <Eric> Wow...the moon reflection off of the OF eruption
17:29:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Too bad the cam sucks.
17:29:49 <Eric> So true Kevin
17:32:32 <Cooper> now.
17:32:43 <Cooper> can we have a peak at the sticks next to Bee
17:33:02 <Eric> Look at that moon reflection in the OF pools
17:33:10 <Cooper> Gran
17:33:11 <Cooper> d
17:33:13 <Eric> grand
17:33:28 <Cooper> Grand the Grannie:p'
17:34:56 <Cooper> when Grand is done can we have a quick peak back at OF? I want a screen shot of the moon,
17:38:47 <LindaG> Moonrise OF
17:40:15 <Eric> Alright...time for me to head out for some board gaming! Night all.
17:40:17 <🌲Lori S> LindaG, excellent capture
17:40:31 <🌲Lori S> Night Eric
17:41:44 <🌲Lori S> Flashlight in the basin
17:42:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that Oblong?
17:43:02 <🌲Lori S> Do you see water?
17:43:13 <LindaG> Eric, night
17:43:18 <LindaG> 🌲Lori S, thx
17:43:40 <🌲Lori S> Blast it cam
17:43:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't see water.
17:43:44 <GO BULGER.S HOL> i think its just steam
17:43:49 <Cooper> Night Eric
17:44:15 <GO BULGER.S HOL> back to OF for captures
17:44:27 <GO BULGER.S HOL> not wuite as good as earlier, bt nice
17:45:03 <Cooper> Thx Graham
17:45:30 <🌲Lori S> So, are lodge lights on for boardwalk work?
17:45:51 <GO BULGER.S HOL> i think they are always on
17:45:51 <🌲Lori S> Or did someone forget to flip the switch? :)
17:46:00 <GO BULGER.S HOL> gong to move the cam in a minute
17:48:04 <Kevin L™🌵> The "darks" (You can't call them lights) they put in the cabins are supposed to save energy. Then they leave 8000 lights on when nobody is there. Perhaps they think they are Motel
17:48:06 <Kevin L™🌵> 6.
17:48:51 <🌲Lori S> Are the Inn lights on?
17:49:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't know but my guess is yes.
17:49:24 <Cooper>
17:49:58 <🌲Lori S> Cooper, purty
17:50:22 <Cooper> thx
17:50:56 <Cooper> oops, just realized I left my spotter network webpage open, oopps, not supposed to do that they say if we are not using it
17:51:21 <🌲Lori S> This capture could be on a holiday card
17:51:49 <Cooper> Run time now
17:56:55 <Cooper> wait, I have a question...
17:57:09 <🌲Lori S> ...
17:57:16 <Cooper>
17:57:20 <Cooper> does that work as a good radio
17:57:35 <Cooper> to call/listen to Geyser calls
17:58:18 <🌲Lori S> I know nothing about radios
17:58:32 <🌲Lori S> I mean those used in the basin
17:58:49 <Cooper> Graham, Kevin?
17:59:51 <🌲Lori S> Well, this cam is bugging me. Perhaps I will be back on tomorrow.
18:00:00 <Cooper> bye
18:00:03 <🌲Lori S> Look--- Inn lot lights
18:00:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I prefer the Motorola
18:00:11 <GO BULGER.S HOL> they look like they will be fine
18:00:28 <Cooper> Graham, thx. Kevin, thx
18:01:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I would make sure the sub channels work with Motorola. There was one brand out that used different codes.
18:01:38 <LindaG> Cooper, nice capture
18:03:55 <Kevin L™🌵> More info Cooper:
18:05:56 <LindaG> Cooper, look at Motorola t260 talkabout
18:06:14 <Kevin L™🌵>
18:06:16 <LindaG> That's what Craig recommended for me
18:06:40 <LindaG> Or Kevin's link
18:08:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Just FYI I got a set of Motorolas about 15 years ago and they still work. I have 6 total and all still work.
18:09:17 <LindaG> Cause a man cant have too many radios 😉
18:17:06 <LindaG> I thought may e we could see Washburn under the moon but no
18:39:24 <ynpvisitor16> .
18:45:06 <Cooper> Just read what I missed, thx for the links!
18:46:53 <Cooper> so, do you need to buy a charger with that?
18:49:31 <Kevin L™🌵> I think they come with a charger but I usually just use 3 AA batteries. They last about 3 days.
18:50:16 <Cooper> so it does have batter holders then?
18:50:23 <LindaG> Might came with charger and batteries
18:50:39 <LindaG> *mine
18:50:59 <Cooper> Linda, T600, or T260?
18:51:23 <LindaG> T260 I think it has rechargeable batteries
18:51:55 <LindaG> Never did get to use them
18:52:05 <LindaG> But I will
18:52:11 <Cooper> Linda, this?
18:52:49 <LindaG> Yes
18:53:15 <Cooper> ok, so if I am going for 9 days next summer. I would need like 30 batteries to be safe.
18:53:37 <Cooper> wait 3AA=29 Hours of it being on.
18:54:00 <LindaG> Well if you charge at night...
18:54:10 <Cooper> It comes with a charger
18:54:17 <Cooper> that you can plug into a wall?
18:54:18 <LindaG> Yes
18:54:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine came with them but they don't last as long as regular batteries. I just got tired of changing them out. Add to that outlets for charging are at a premium in a Lodge cabin.
18:54:57 <Cooper> ok
18:55:10 <Cooper> so I should bring both the chargers, and extra AA batteries
18:55:24 <LindaG> Yeah I guess I could put regular batteries in mine also
18:55:37 <Kevin L™🌵> After about a year or so you are lucky to get 8 hours out of a rechargeable pack.
18:56:33 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
18:57:56 <Cooper> so if I sleep 8 hours to be safe, am else where in the park 2 hours to be safe. I need 24-8-2 so I need 14 Hours per day(Likely more like 6 to 10) and I can get 2 days out of the AA Batteries with that, I would need more like 12, figure 18 to be VERY safe, and my rechargable pack
19:02:41 <Cooper> Sput might be going down the drain slowly: "We need a full issue of the Sput to supply a ray of sunshine in these progressively darkening days"
19:04:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I run my radio 24/7 up there. ?Usually replace them twice in a week. If you don't talk they last longer.
