08:24:31 <KevinS> morning Craig
08:24:52 <CraigC> hey Kevin..... crappy views
08:25:25 <KevinS> Has been for several mornings in a row now
08:25:44 <CraigC> yeah, my thrusday morning shift sucked, too
08:34:32 <CraigC> Art is in basin?
08:35:49 <ynpvisitor37> yep. They saw Grand yesterday - in person :)
08:43:22 <ynpvisitor40> :p
08:46:20 <CraigC> hey Kevin
08:46:22 <CraigC> hey Lori
08:46:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
08:46:51 <Lori S> Hi Craig
08:47:02 <Lori S> Hi Kevin L™ 🌵
08:47:27 <Lori S> CraigC, Jayco question for ya
08:47:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello
08:47:42 <Lori S> Hi Graham
08:47:52 <CraigC> hey Graham
08:48:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think I can work today, but will need to take a break around 1600 to 1730 for dinner witha a friend
08:48:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Shouldn't that be GONE STEAMBOAT?
08:48:36 <Lori S> CraigC, been reading some reviews that folks find things not fully together in their new Jaycos. Like things not assembled right. You have ny of that?
08:48:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> its due in 2 days :)
08:49:09 <CraigC> Lori S, not yet, but mine was 2 years old, so if there were, the previojus owners solved it all
08:49:20 <CraigC> Lori S, I have heard that, too
08:49:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> cam looks fuzzy today
08:49:48 <Lori S> Ours will be a 2019 but not previously owned.
08:49:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> busy morning, attic almost empty, stopped because we filled the dumpster
08:50:05 <Lori S> We think anyway if it doesn't sell before we et it
08:50:13 <CraigC> Lori S, but I still believe the lower price makes up for it
08:50:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> and i have a room full o stuff to check before it probably heads to the dumpster too
08:50:38 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, Big cleanout?
08:50:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can relate Graham. We have gone through 4 dumpsters so far.
08:51:07 <Lori S> CraigC, Yeah, this one just dropped 5K cuz they rob want it off the lot
08:51:25 <Lori S> *prob
08:51:28 <CraigC> Lori S, which one is it
08:51:45 <ynpvisitor64> Are you going to live in it?
08:51:46 <Lori S> stand by
08:51:53 <CraigC> I love thier rear bathroom units
08:51:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> had to leave some room n it as it is the community dumpster and was emptied yesterday
08:52:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> filled one last weekend too, probably another full load next weekend
08:52:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> still moving forward
08:52:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> are we going to have RV races for geyser gazers?
08:53:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Oh, they do get upset about that! These were the construction dumpsters. I don't think Dad ever threw anything away.
08:53:16 <TomK> Good morning all
08:53:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Tom
08:53:27 <CraigC> hey Tom
08:53:52 <CraigC> of
08:54:00 <Lori S> That took a minute
08:54:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> my mom had stff from 50 years ago in the attic. fortunately a friend and I got it mostly clear in 2.5h
08:54:26 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, yes, it willbe our year around home
08:54:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> now i have all the boxes that I wasnt sure if they were direct dumpster material or not
08:54:47 <CraigC> Lori S, OMG, that price...... dont wait
08:54:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice Lori
08:54:57 <CraigC> someone else will grab it
08:55:20 <CraigC> that is wayyyyyyyyy cbheap
08:55:39 <lindag> nice Lori. my brother had a jayyo but with cab. buy it!
08:55:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> should we start a bidding war for it?
08:55:50 <CraigC> oooops, I read 15k
08:55:51 <Lori S> CraigC, We are thinking to put a deposit down and keep it up there to not lose it. But we still don't have a space yet
08:55:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Would you believe we finally were able to get the stuff out of the safe deposit box yesterday?
08:55:53 <lindag> *jayco
08:56:14 <CraigC> I feel stupid now
08:56:26 <ynpvisitor64> What about the space you’re in now?
08:56:33 <lindag> CraigC, well me too, didn't it say 15k?
08:56:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah for you Kevin. I got a bunch of admin stuff done yesterday including filing the will
08:56:42 <Lori S> I was gonna say CraigC lol
08:56:48 <CraigC> discount is 15k, price is 36k
08:57:07 <Lori S> No, price is $29995
08:57:22 <CraigC> thta seems like a goo deal
08:57:24 <lindag> oh! well that is still a good price, I think.
08:57:28 <CraigC> good deal
08:57:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe I should buy it .....
08:57:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> then i need a pickup ...
08:57:57 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, There are 2 on the lot :)
08:58:09 <ynpvisitor64> Don’t you have a space your current trailer is in?
08:58:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, do we get a discount if we go in together to buy them both at once?
08:58:34 <CraigC> ok, I need to run, have to be up in Idaho for an uncle's funeral
08:58:38 <Lori S> yeah, we will have to pay someone o get it to West. Our truck could pull it but then we would need a new transmission.
08:58:40 <CraigC> all yorus tom
08:58:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry to hear that Craig
08:59:04 <lindag> Lori S, don't k ow anyone that would let you keep on their property in the meantime?
08:59:05 <Lori S> Sorry CraigC
08:59:13 <TomK> OK, I got it
08:59:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sorry about that Craig. I hope Idaho treats you better than it did me.
08:59:39 <Lori S> Lori S, didnt quit
08:59:54 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
09:00:28 <Lori S> lindag, no
09:00:38 <lindag> Lori S, so you would need a new truck too?
09:00:50 <Lori S> Eventually
09:01:14 <Lori S> Once we park it we plan to leave it for now
09:01:32 <Lori S> That is, no traveling just living in it
09:01:41 <ynpvisitor64> Why live in a trailer in West Yellowstone? Is it winterized?
09:01:54 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, yes, it is
09:02:49 <TomK> Not much to see down basin. Any critters spotted this morning?
09:03:20 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, and no housing in west is the why
09:03:54 <lindag> I guess there's no spaces either ☹
09:04:00 <ynpvisitor64> If there is no place for the trailer, how will you use it?
09:04:51 <ynpvisitor64> Can you put it where yours is now?
09:05:00 <Lori S> lindag, yes but we do have a lead finally
09:05:43 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, no our current spot is a modular and we are moving out of it this week
09:05:44 <lindag> Lori S, that's good. maybe deposit to hold would work. maybe the place that's selling it could tow it.
09:06:12 <Lori S> lindag, They won't. We asked last fall :(
09:06:15 <lindag> has to be west Yellowstone?
09:06:22 <lindag> bummer
09:06:46 <Lori S> lindag, alas, it is the question we continue o ask ourselves
09:06:59 <ynpvisitor64> So you need to move into it next week?
09:07:12 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, no
09:07:56 <Lori S> temp arrangement for a few months
09:07:56 <lindag> Lori S, guess you don't have a lot of options town wise.
09:08:47 <Lori S> lindag, yup
09:08:53 <ynpvisitor64> Good luck with it all. You don’t want to buy it and then not have a place to put it. RV parks are expensive in West
09:09:31 <Lori S> ynpvisitor64, not a nightly spot. a monthly spot which are even rarer than rentals that allow dogs lol
09:09:34 <ynpvisitor64> If you had to pay day to day I mean
09:10:42 <ynpvisitor64> I hope you find a spot and it works out.
09:10:54 <Lori S> We do too! :)
09:16:38 <lindag> TomK oops you got caught up in our discussions. I just cam on so not sure about critters. the view has been about the same every morning. fog.
09:17:29 <Lori S> Oh, Hi TomK
09:18:44 <TomK> TY, lindag, Myriad group better
09:20:18 <TomK> hi Lori S,
09:21:54 <Lori S> Hey Jarno
09:21:58 <JarnoO> morning all
09:22:09 <lindag> JarnoO, hi
09:23:13 <lindag> Lori S, towing services for RVs mist exist, maybe when the time comes you. an use one of those
09:23:29 <lindag> *must
09:24:31 <Lori S> we hope to work out something in town. Know a couple folks with a truck/hitch
09:25:12 <Lori S> Big Sky RV actually inspects your trcuk and won't let you take the trailer with something that isn't safe
09:25:48 <lindag> that's good
09:26:06 <lindag> wise on their part
09:29:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Put your mailbox in after it is parked.
09:30:26 <lindag> 😀
09:31:24 <lindag> I feel the pain. OF emptyi g out houses. my parents were from the depression era, didn't throw out a thing.
09:31:52 <lindag> many dumpsters were filled. it's not bad if you do t care and can just toss it all.
09:34:31 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, LOL
09:35:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The problem with Dad is he mixed good stuff up with trash. Had to check every paper. :p
09:36:20 <Lori S> lindag, I've been tossing stuff right and left this past week with the vision of moving into a trailer. I don't have all that much and it's still a task. Can't imagine clearing out a house full of a lifetime of treasures.
09:37:24 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, Oh geez. That's a task
09:37:45 <Lori S> Oh, doggies
09:39:47 <TomK> NPS informs us that there's a dying bison near Castle & be on the lookout for wolves, other scavengers.
09:40:16 <JarnoO> another one?
09:40:33 <TomK> Grand window, so I'm keeoing the cam down basin for now
09:40:54 <JarnoO> I assume that bison is behind the trees?
09:42:19 <lindag> TomK, whoohoo
09:42:59 <JarnoO> 0905 note suggests that Grand went earlier already
09:44:34 <JarnoO> Castle's in its early window, though.
09:45:17 <JarnoO> not sure where the NPS got 1315 from, as that's 3 hours late
09:45:18 <TomK> JarnoO, correct, grand probably went. TY for that.
09:45:43 <lindag> Lori S, it was brutal cleaning out their house. had a dumpster in driveway and used to throw stuff put second floor window. Took us weeks.
09:46:30 <TomK> Was there another report of dying bison? I assume it's the same one. Yes, must be out of sight of cam.
09:47:54 <JarnoO> yes, same bison
09:48:11 <Lori S> lindag, And having to do that task after a loved one passes must add to the work.
09:48:44 <Lori S> *the difficulty of the work
09:48:58 <Lori S> Hallo Jeff
09:49:08 <Jeff> hello lori
09:49:08 <JarnoO> morning Jeff
09:49:15 <Jeff> morning jarnoo
09:50:10 <Lori S> I'm using Eric's measure function to draw a line at FPP to seek the location of MT from the photo I posted on fb
09:50:32 <Lori S> Those rocks in the foreground are quite helpful
09:50:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The bad thing on Dad's place is he built the house himself. The land will be worth more without the house so I assume whoever buys it will bulldoze it.
09:51:15 <Lori S> I packed all my books for the move but left out a couple. GOY is one of those. :)
09:51:35 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, Oh man that's tough
09:52:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good priority Lori
09:53:50 <lindag> books are so hard to pack, weight so much.
09:54:52 <Jeff> i love reading but hate having to move with a lot of books
09:55:04 <lindag> the most surprising thing about my parents house was how big it actually was when it was empty.
09:55:18 <lindag> Jeff, hi
09:55:22 <Jeff> hi linda
09:57:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Mother in Law had about 1000 books. She used money for bookmarks. We found everything from $1 to $100 in books. Had to flip through every page.
09:57:46 <Jeff> my grand parents had about 1500 books when they passed
09:58:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like the Nascar rain is just starting.
09:58:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Getting hard to get rid of books now. Nobody seems to want them.
09:59:18 <Betty> morning all
09:59:25 <lindag> I take to library or there is a auxiliary for hospital that takes to sell.
09:59:28 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, yeah, it's sad. I just gave 4 bag fulls to our library
09:59:28 <Jeff> morning betty
09:59:37 <lindag> Betty, hi
09:59:47 <Lori S> Hi Betty
09:59:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Guten hello
10:00:03 <JarnoO> Where I live you can actually design the house yourself in some neighborhoods (well, with the help of an architect). Gives the neighborhood a little personal touch. Of course it still needs to meet building regulations and whatever criteria the municipality set, but otherwise you can do your thing on the 'land' (well, more like 0.01 acre) you bought
10:00:08 <Betty> hi Jeff,lindag, Lori S, and Kevin L™ 🌵
10:00:21 <JarnoO> 0.1 acre*
10:00:28 <Betty> afternoon JarnoO
10:00:37 <JarnoO> evening Betty
10:00:47 <lindag> JarnoO, that sounds nice
10:01:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> anyone want some owls? I think we are below 100 left now
10:01:48 <lindag> i still prefer to read a "book" as opposed to a "kindle book"
10:02:02 <Betty> hi Graham
10:02:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have a BOGO deal, if you take something from the house, you must take an owl too
10:02:19 <Jeff> yea i prefer actual books over the digital versions
10:02:20 <lindag> GO STEAMBOAT, ☺
10:02:33 <Betty> an owl??
10:02:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> after clering the attic, it may extend to taing a piece of ceramics too
10:02:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can do that here. Dad's house sits on 5 acres which will most likely be split into 10 1/2 acre lots. Mine is on a half acre. I designed and built a 16'x40' replica of a railroad depot in the backyard.
10:03:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> my mom collected owls .. fortunatey one person took a whole box full
10:03:38 <JarnoO> oh, I thought actual living owls... hehe
10:03:58 <lindag> reading all this i justnwrapped up some things from china closet to donate
10:04:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> lindag, :thumbsup:
10:04:46 <lindag> hehe i do a lot tof that
10:04:56 <lindag> *of
10:04:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I did find some cool stuff. He had an 1884 O mint silver dollar.
10:05:16 <lindag> nice
10:05:19 <JarnoO> I should actually get a printed copy of GoY 5th edition at some point. Reading it in browser isn't really optimal
10:05:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i found a huge plastic bag of pennies
10:05:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am not in your league Kevin
10:06:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> where are the wolfies?
10:06:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He had a bag of pennies in the safe deposit box dated from 62 through 64. When I saw them I thought they would be wheatbacks.
10:07:00 <JarnoO> what's the NPS doing with their Castle predictions? At first it was 1315, then 1015 and now 1200
10:07:16 <TomK> GO STEAMBOAT, possibly near Castle
10:07:23 <lindag> JarnoO, I did get a hard copy of GOY, digital didnt seem right
10:07:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> how many editions Linda?
10:08:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like paper myself. I have a lot of Yellowstone stuff and train books.
10:08:06 <TomK> Does anybody know where near castle the bison is?
10:08:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> another carcass?
10:09:06 <TomK> peeps near castle will keep the wolves out of sight.
10:09:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well it is training time. bbl
10:09:15 <JarnoO> cya Kevin
10:09:24 <lindag> GO STEAMBOAT, it's the fifth edition Goy, I think the most recent
10:09:34 <lindag> Kevin L™ 🌵, bye
10:10:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> i missed the first edition that was Bill Warnocks copy, I think KC and Julie got there first
10:10:14 <ynpvisitor19> A good gues sis the bison boes are close to those people.
10:10:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> i had the forst edition reprint, so the 1.5 version
10:10:15 <lindag> I didn't even know there was a dying bison. feel like I missed an email or something
10:10:27 <JarnoO> 5th edition was published mid-2018 if I remember correctly, so it's the most recent one
10:10:40 <ynpvisitor19> And don't discount that bag of pennies.
10:10:46 <lindag> it was most recent when I bought it
10:10:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes it has the start of SB active phase there
10:11:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> are we playing "spot the ding bison" now?
10:11:21 <TomK> lindag, We talked to the VEC a while ago and they told us about it.
10:11:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> or dying
10:11:29 <JarnoO> think so, Graham
10:11:33 <ynpvisitor19> Pre 80 something they are worth about 2 cents or more. And some can be quite a find. Need time, a good glass, and a book so you know what to look for.
10:11:45 <Jeff> is anyone else besides me surprised SB is still active at this point in the game?
10:11:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> could they put a marker on it so we can find it easier, or a temporary cam preset :)
10:12:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am not surprised, its activity is unprecidented .. even tho some disagree
10:12:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> why shouldnt it just stay active for years?
10:13:01 <JarnoO> Jeff, at one side I am, at the other side - well, it would just require time for SB to be as stupendous as it was back in the 60s. Though pretty sure this one trumpeted even the 60s
10:13:03 <TomK> GO STEAMBOAT, VEC assumes there will be wolves at the carcass, so cam op (me) should keep watch as the public will be interested.
10:13:39 <TomK> OF window
10:13:48 <ynpvisitor19> OF rules. Even over dogs.
10:13:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Cam op :) maybe the next cam op can find them too
10:14:07 <Jeff> im hoping SB (at the very least) will keep going at least through the summer so i can get a good chance of catching it
10:15:58 <JarnoO> I think it'll hover around 7-9 days for a few months (famous last words). Fingers crossed a specific event occurring at random times in a specific basin doesn't mess it up
10:16:54 <Jeff> with my luck involving SB itll pull something completely random like the 3 days to where i will just miss it
10:17:52 <JarnoO> I hope that doesn't happen when you're there
10:18:02 <ynpvisitor19> Those drive ups are hard. "you just missed it, it went in the morning"
10:18:38 <Jeff> all i know is as soon as the park opens im gonna be spending as much time as i can up at norris to at the very least get some notes on what its doing but hopefully get an eruption
10:18:47 <JarnoO> I wonder how many trees aren't snapped yet in the forest around Steamboat
10:18:55 <lindag> TomK, thx its.comforting to know i didn't miss an email 😉 inthink wolves trump Old Faithful these days. Took them to days to find the dead bison.
10:19:07 <lindag> *two
10:19:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> werent the Wapities up near golden gate the other day?
10:20:21 <Jeff> i believe so
10:20:44 <lindag> I forget where they went to, but supposedly left the area
10:21:23 <Jeff> from what ive seen with the wapitis they like to travel outside of their normal area a lot
10:21:51 <TomK> lindag, Wolves beat OF for me, too. Working at the VC, I've seen OF a thousand times, but NPS cam policy has OF priority, especially when it's just a possibility of catching critters.
10:22:47 <ynpvisitor19> The ravens and little dogs will get something to eat.
10:24:08 <LindaGt> That first day with the wolves I'm not sure saw much OF coverage
10:24:58 <JarnoO> aww... hoped the cam would've cut out until the end of OF
10:27:05 <Lori S> Jeff, We should stay in touch about what days you will be at Norris. I have a research thing I want to do but it requires someone to be at SB while I am inmy research spot
10:27:27 <Jeff> yea id definitely be able to help out with that
10:27:47 <Lori S> Jeff, :thumbsup:
10:28:08 <Jeff> i know once the park opens ill basically be up there after work monday-friday and most of the day saturday and sunday
10:28:34 <LindaGt> Lori S, I f hes gotta go to SB he'll just have to suffer through it lol
10:28:36 <JarnoO> What kind of research is it?
10:29:01 <Lori S> my work schedule is yet to be determined but I will let you know once I know
10:29:07 <Lori S> LindaGt, hehe
10:29:30 <Lori S> JarnoO, wild goose chase research :)
10:29:58 <Jeff> even if you arent able to make it up to norris when im up there im still gonna be there and get some notes at the very least
10:30:05 <Lori S> connection I think may exist
10:30:49 <Lori S> Jeff, well, it's a "what happens at A and what happens at B simultaneously
10:31:06 <Jeff> ahhh
10:31:13 <JarnoO> Good news: we haven't missed F&M. Bad news: no recent eruptions of F&M, snow bank between East and Main
10:31:28 <Lori S> And keep in mind the boardwalk may not be open right away once he road opens
10:31:42 <Jeff> F&M is another one i need to try and catch
10:31:50 <ynpvisitor19> Synchronize your watches and radios.
10:32:29 <Jeff> yea as long as the boardwalk is open ill be sitting on the platform to try and catch it but my luck itll go while im at work
10:32:50 <Lori S> ynpvisitor19, I have no radio but as long as timepieces are synchronized, it'll be good
10:33:05 <Jeff> speaking of radios i have to program my new radio
10:33:50 <Jeff> OF
10:36:57 <ynpvisitor37> Lori S, try a pawn shop for radios at a good price
10:37:21 <Lori S> ynpvisitor37, wouldn't even know what to get
10:37:52 <Betty> bbl
10:38:05 <Lori S> bye Betty
10:38:23 <Jeff> bye betty
10:38:29 <LindaGt> I think the o es Craig records mended for me cost less than $40 on amazon
10:38:42 <ynpvisitor19> I bought a set of used radios. They would not work for adjusting the tv antenna. Not going to do that again.
10:38:43 <LindaGt> *recommended
10:38:47 <ynpvisitor37> gazers at the platform are good about calling the big minors which can get you there from elsewhere
10:39:02 <Jeff> lori i have the baofeng uv-5r
10:39:45 <Lori S> I've decided I need to win the lottery so I can spend all my time at SB ;)
10:40:07 <ynpvisitor19> Must only want to win a little.
10:40:10 <Jeff> that would be nice for all the gazers and people who wanna do research at SB
10:40:13 <JarnoO> Castle
10:40:19 <LindaGt> We'll come visit you
10:40:23 <JarnoO> Riverside in overflow per 1032 note
10:40:30 <Lori S> LindaGt, :)
10:40:51 <Lori S> My other half and my dog may protest
10:41:15 <ynpvisitor19> Your service dog?
10:41:22 <LindaGt> 😆
10:41:25 <Lori S> ynpvisitor19, :)
10:46:15 <Lori S> Well, packing calls me. BBL
10:46:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> does anyone do research at SB?
10:46:26 <LindaGt> Lori S, bye
10:46:30 <Jeff> see you later lori
10:46:38 <JarnoO> cya Lori
10:46:39 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, good question
10:47:17 <ynpvisitor19> I think they just stand around ad try and trap people setting in their chair.
10:47:41 <Lori S> I think there are some but I remain amazed that during this active phase no one is elsewhere in the basin too. if there are folks I am not aware of them. Other than MA and Vixen
10:48:52 <JarnoO> well, technically everyone does research at Steamboat. Not only by entering notes, but also comparing past eruptions with the current one, as well as the build-up to one and dicovering patterns (or lack thereof) in behavior
10:50:09 <Lori S> JarnoO, yes, but something that big, well, how can we believe it affects nothing else in the basin? Other than Cistern, I mean
10:50:27 <ynpvisitor60> Castle?
10:50:35 <ynpvisitor19> ie
10:50:45 <JarnoO> #60, yes. ie since at least 1040
10:50:53 <Lori S> There are notes of Veteran being affected. Haven't seen that myself but
10:51:23 <ynpvisitor70> Castle is not on GT
10:51:30 <JarnoO> it is now
10:51:40 <Lori S> ok, really going now lol
10:51:58 <Jeff> the way i see it im going to assume it does affect a good portion of the basin until someone gets enough research done to be able to prove otherwise
10:52:01 <TomK> :)
10:52:35 <ynpvisitor19> Lori, problem is if no one is studying lesser thought of features, then how would anyone know if activity is related?
10:52:35 <JarnoO> a double quit, that's a new one for me from this chat program
10:53:20 <Jeff> thats what i was thinking JarnoO
10:53:32 <Lori S> ynpvisitor19, exactly
10:54:31 <JarnoO> what would really help is a research permit for all kinds of loggers which log not only temperature, but also chemistry of the water. That way you can also 'see' the invisible before, during and after a Steamboat
10:54:44 <Lori S> But who ya gonna get to sit out of view of SB to gather data? Whe all that action is going on at SB
10:55:17 <Lori S> JarnoO, wouldn't that be lovely?
10:55:25 <JarnoO> it would
10:55:44 <JarnoO> Castle looks like it wants to go to steam
10:56:32 <ynpvisitor19> Jarno can crunch the data. He has lots of time in the dark winter.
10:57:10 <JarnoO> I'd let my computer crunch the data and I just observe what comes out of it :P
10:57:41 <ynpvisitor19> That only works if the computer is smart.
10:59:34 <ynpvisitor19> What is really needed is a research permit to develop loggers that do not fail.
11:00:17 <Jeff> that would definitely be extremely helpful having something that wont fail
11:01:03 <ynpvisitor19> Well, off to other things. Enjoy the sunny day.
11:25:06 <TomK> The word from the VEC is that the carcass between castle & oblong is an old one.
11:25:41 <TomK> The current "dying' bison is between castle & the Inn.
11:26:09 <TomK> They are routing visitors through the Inn parking lot to avoie it.
11:26:23 <TomK> I'm trying to locateit on the cam
11:34:03 <LindaGt> 👍
11:35:29 <LindaGt> Cool prints on roof
11:35:53 <TomK> did anybody see it? My picture not very detailed
11:36:17 <LindaGt> No
11:39:22 <LindaGt> Can you zoom closer on that
11:40:00 <LindaGt> Inthought it was a rock but not positive
11:40:18 <TomK> I give up. Live bison here, BH is in it's "window" so I'll keep looking back & forth until OF window
11:40:42 <LindaGt> Back by asphalt was it stone or bison
11:41:28 <Lori S> If routing through lot, doesn't that suggest it's closer to te Inn?
11:42:25 <TomK> Lori S, Yes, but I didn't see it there either
11:42:33 <ynpvisitor37> I would think closer to the path to reroute thru the Inn lot
11:42:44 <TomK> LindaGt, Stione, I think
11:42:47 <Lori S> As in near path in front of Inn
11:43:12 <Lori S> ...and store
11:43:13 <TomK> I'll try it again, stop me if you see something
11:43:26 <Lori S> I was away but will watch this time
11:45:28 <TomK> sign is at path to BH viewing platform
11:46:16 <Lori S> can you zoom at sign?
11:46:26 <Lori S> on delay
11:46:45 <Lori S> is that it?
11:46:53 <Lori S> no
11:47:08 <TomK> sign
11:47:36 <Lori S> thx but nothin
11:47:51 <Lori S> skiiers on path there
11:48:27 <TomK> Marker cones put up by NPS
11:48:29 <LindaGt> Cone?
11:49:20 <TomK> 1 cone in center, row across pathway on left
11:49:34 <LindaGt> Wouldn't think it would be that hard to find a bison
11:49:51 <Lori S> LindaGt, haha yep
11:50:58 <TomK> another row on right... bison between them?
11:52:16 <Lori S> must be behind a tree
11:53:02 <TomK> lots of tracks in the snow here
11:53:07 <LindaGt> Can you zoom into left of that one cone
11:55:16 <LindaGt> A dirty area there was wondering if it was there
11:55:53 <TomK> OF window. Sorry, we can try again later
11:56:02 <LindaGt> Ok
11:56:07 <Lori S> OK, thx
11:56:42 <Lori S> As you pan back to OF, thought I saw somwthing right at far left of bw viewing platform
11:57:53 <LindaGt> Once it dies critters will be showing g up, and may e before. Will make it easier to find
11:57:55 <TomK> Indy
11:58:19 <LindaGt> Wow
11:58:33 <TomK> VC reports indy at 1155
11:58:38 <LindaGt> Want me to send text?
11:59:13 <LindaGt> I'll send if you stay on it
11:59:34 <Lori S> maybe send with note of OF window
11:59:54 <TomK> can't get OF + BH in the frame
12:00:02 <LindaGt> No
12:00:12 <Jeff> this is gonna sound weird but its actually rainy and extremely humid here in phoenix
12:00:42 <Jeff> come one bee do something please lol
12:00:43 <Lori S> TomK, they need to remedy that :)
12:00:46 <LindaGt> We can watch OF on static or BH
12:01:21 <TomK> somebody watch the of picture still cam?
12:01:46 <LindaGt> YES I'll watch
12:02:32 <TomK> Public will complain, but BH !!!
12:03:01 <Jeff> i actually prefer BH eruptions over OF all day any day
12:03:30 <TomK> Me 2
12:04:16 <LindaGt> I sent text but also mentioned OF window
12:04:27 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
12:04:54 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi all ...Got the text
12:05:03 <LindaGt> Great
12:05:07 <Lori S> come on bee hurry
12:06:45 <TomK> No, BH wait!
12:07:14 <Lori S> Great cam work!

12:07:24 <Lori S> wait bh!
12:07:32 <TomK> Pure luck, but TY
12:07:41 <LindaGt> I'll watch for beehive e kn static
12:08:29 <Lori S> bee on static i think
12:08:38 <LindaGt> Beehive
12:08:57 <LindaGt> Yes
12:09:38 <Jeff> nice rainbow
12:10:03 <Lori S> bee on delay
12:10:07 <LindaGt> Nice
12:10:08 <ynpvisitorCC> Nice jobTom!
12:10:14 <Lori S> yes, nice rainbow!
12:10:21 <LindaGt> Whoohoo rainbow
12:12:21 <Lori S> My other half has a film crew at OF. Hope they got that dual
12:12:31 <JarnoO> half a Bee is better than no Bee I guess
12:12:40 <Lori S> yes, they have an NPS escort
12:12:50 <LindaGt> Yesterday OF started just as beehive ended
12:13:12 <JarnoO> Fluffball was 1206 ns on static
12:13:51 <Lori S> 3 cheers for the cam guy :)
12:14:02 <LindaGt> Thx Tom that was great
12:14:19 <TomK> Blush!
12:15:25 <LindaGt> I had same problem yesterday
12:15:49 <Lori S> btw 14 lbs lost on Noom as of today
12:15:52 <TomK> ;)
12:16:10 <LindaGt> Lori S, wow that's great
12:16:34 <Lori S> even with all the crud I'm going through I'm maintaining
12:16:48 <LindaGt> 👍
12:21:37 <ynpvisitor14> No bees or dogs for me today. Sounds like the bison is old from the report.
12:29:12 <lindaG> no one entered Indy, I will with a time of 11:55
12:30:40 <TomK> lindaG, Thanks. I try to let the gazers enter times..
12:33:30 <TomK> Question: For those of you who know Joane. Is there a way to contact the gazer community to put in a request to help with a little project? And no, she doesn't do facebook.
12:37:47 <LindaGt> Oh I dont know her. Graham might be a good person to ask
12:38:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did I miss anything?
12:38:33 <LindaGt> Yup beehive
12:40:09 <TomK> LindaGt, Thanks, I'll try him
12:43:41 <LindaGt> Washburn is real pretty o static
12:48:15 <ynpvisitor114> Tom, there is a Google Group that sends out E mails about geyser things. Perhaps she could write there about her project.
12:48:47 <ynpvisitor114> or, use your name of FB and post about it, through your account to the Geyser Discussion Board there
12:49:07 <TomK> We'll check that. ty
12:51:30 <TomK> I suggested that to he, but we'd have to let everybody know our home address and she does't want that on FB
12:51:39 <TomK> 'to her'
12:55:19 <ynpvisitor114> oh well, maybe Google Group thing would be better
12:55:59 <ynpvisitor114> otherwise she will have to wait until she arrives this season and hand people paper
12:59:17 <TomK> Thanks for the suggestions. She has Mary Beth's e-mail and may try to contact her. It's about 90th birthday cards for a visitor who has come to OF every summer for 20 years or so and gone to all her walks, talks etc
12:59:55 <TomK> Time for me to leave. Who wants the cam?
13:02:16 <TomK> The cam is open, I have to leave. Thanks all, it's been a great shift.
13:02:43 <ynpvisitor114> bye tom.
13:05:09 <LindaGt> I'll take till Graham gets here
13:06:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry i am late, would have been on time but there was an accident delay
13:06:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> hw do you run this cam anyway, i need retraining
13:07:29 <lindaG> I'll get out
13:07:35 <lindaG> controls released
13:08:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks. new aptop to, bt I found the cam
13:09:00 <LindaGt> 👍
13:09:52 <LindaGt> Supposedly there is a dying bison between OF inn and castle
13:10:10 <LindaGt> VEC said to look out for wolves
13:10:18 <LindaGt> We couldn't find it
13:10:28 <ynpvisitor114> Art's note said it is already picked over pretty well
13:10:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> from Arts description its probably hidden behind trees
13:10:41 <ynpvisitor114> sounds out of sight from the cam from his note too
13:10:56 <LindaGt> I think there is an carcass and a dying bison
13:11:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> which one is dying?
13:11:31 <LindaGt> One between castle and inn
13:11:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> this one in center would be a good spot
13:12:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> or this one on its own
13:12:26 <ynpvisitor114> I didn't hear anything about a dying one, only the carcass
13:12:37 <ynpvisitor114> how can they tell if it is dying or just laying down?
13:12:44 <LindaGt> I think Tom spoke to VEC
13:13:07 <ynpvisitor114> Maybe read the log, I think it is all one bison
13:13:34 <LindaGt> Look at Tom's text above
13:14:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> lots of snow humps
13:15:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> the snow mound has grown since last time i paid any attention
13:15:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least we can still see the VEC
13:16:52 <LindaGt> The word from the VEC is that the carcass between castle & oblong is an old one. 11:25:41 ‹TomK› The current "dying' bison is between castle & the Inn. 11:26:09 ‹TomK› They are routing visitors through the Inn parking lot to avoie it. 11:26:23 ‹TomK› I'm trying to locateit on the cam 11:34:03 ‹LindaGt› 👍
13:18:16 <ynpvisitor114> Thanks Linda. I wonder how routing them through the parking lot helped things?
13:18:55 <LindaGt> Not sure since people seem to be all over
13:18:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> avoids harassing the sick bison.
13:19:00 <ynpvisitor114> people walking out to Castle, so path is open
13:20:56 <LindaGt> They had cones out before over by the asphalt but now they are gone
13:21:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe its one of these further away
13:22:36 <LindaGt> One on right j.g asnt moved
13:22:43 <Lori S> Since it is "dying" maybe it moved from the original spot?
13:22:44 <LindaGt> Yikes.
13:22:57 <LindaGt> One on right hasnt moved
13:23:13 <LindaGt> Lori S, yeah possible
13:23:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> the one right here?
13:23:34 <LindaGt> Straight out
13:23:38 <ynpvisitor114> They can lay around for hours and not be dying
13:23:52 <LindaGt> Now one on left
13:24:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> this one hasnt moved either
13:24:18 <ynpvisitor114> there are quite a few bison laying about out there
13:24:25 <Lori S> Ravens should help find it once it's dead
13:24:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> the wolves you mean?
13:24:58 <ynpvisitor114> I'm thinking Art will post a note as well, he is a big wolf watcher
13:25:07 <Lori S> Well, with the last one it was ravens then a coyote then wolves
13:25:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He hasn't done too well with Aurum today.
13:26:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> hegot a "closed interval"
13:53:22 <LindaGt> Well none of those were dead 🙄
13:53:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> unless they are albino bison
13:53:56 <LindaGt> 😆
13:56:22 <Art> At Grotto hoping for Rocket/Spa before we head to grand
13:56:41 <Art> The wolves are a low probability
13:56:57 <ynpvisitor37> hi Art
13:57:14 <Art> They had 5 packs yesterday in northern tier
13:57:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You aren't having any luck with Aurum either.
13:57:26 <Art> Including Wapitis
13:58:24 <LindaGt> No one to eat our dying bison
13:59:01 <Art> I’ve yet to see this dying bison but will keep an eye out
13:59:32 <Art> Checked the herb by castle but didn’t see anything
14:00:14 <LindaGt> Thisnwas discussion earlier -The word from the VEC is that the carcass between castle & oblong is an old one. 11:25:41 ‹TomK› The current "dying' bison is between castle & the Inn. 11:26:09 ‹TomK› They are routing visitors through the Inn parking lot to avoie it. 11:26:23 ‹TomK› I'm trying to locateit on the cam 11:34:03 ‹LindaGt› 👍
14:01:21 <JarnoO> Castle has herbs now? :D
14:01:31 <JarnoO> Lion roar
14:03:52 <Art> The carcass by oblong / castle is totally picked over
14:04:12 <Art> Lots of birds on it
14:04:33 <LindaGt> 👍
14:05:12 <Art> Solitary is being weird
14:06:06 <Art> sat up there but only saw one small eruption
14:06:11 <JarnoO> Lion
14:06:18 <Art> in maybe 15-20
14:06:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Or sooner
14:07:04 <JarnoO> Solitary did nothing in the other 15-20 minutes you sat there?
14:07:15 <JarnoO> Lion minor so far
14:10:59 <Art> Pushes but no eruption till the end when I got one small burst
14:16:55 <LindaGt> Static Washburn nice and clear
14:19:07 <Lori S> Beautiful day in the neighborhood :)
14:19:24 <LindaGt> Lori S, 😀
14:19:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is because you don't have a race up there
14:19:57 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, :D
14:21:57 <LindaGt> Kevin L™ 🌵, seems like your state is very organized, caucus is happening without flaws
14:24:33 <JarnoO> Grand
14:25:00 <LindaGt> Boy am I delayed
14:25:07 <LindaGt> Here it comes
14:25:43 <JarnoO> G--
14:26:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be glad when it is over. Sick of ads and #%^^%# phone calls. I just turned the ringer off.
14:26:58 <LindaGt> Kevin L™ 🌵, 🙁
14:27:40 <LindaGt> Hehe they drew cards to break a tie
14:27:54 <LindaGt> Vegas style
14:29:21 <LindaGt> Nice spikes
14:29:29 <JarnoO> 5m
14:33:29 <JarnoO> 9m
14:34:01 <JarnoO> looks like it'll be 1b and done
14:35:25 <JarnoO> b1 done
14:36:07 <JarnoO> OT ns
14:36:33 <JarnoO> G1Q

15:03:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> hope thats Art there
15:03:17 <LindaGt> Yay!
15:03:20 <JarnoO> he is
15:03:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> and dubet cooperated
15:03:34 <LindaGt> Ring side seat
15:03:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Great view on that.
15:03:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> even tho it was during OF window :)
15:04:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> badcam op
15:04:13 <LindaGt> Nice badcam op
15:04:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looked fine to me
15:04:46 <JarnoO> OF
15:09:16 <JarnoO> Could this be an Aurum starting?
15:12:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe
15:13:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> worth a ? on GT
15:13:48 <JarnoO> Think so. Would be for the 1223 Aurum huffing note
15:22:51 <JarnoO> it's on GT now
15:48:14 <Joe> /
15:55:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> i'm heading out to dinner, hopefully someone can cover it for 90min or so
15:56:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> moving to OF in case nobody can take it.
15:56:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can probably take it.
15:57:44 <Joe> Kevin, if you can't I can
15:58:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Go ahead Joe. I may have to run is about an hour
15:58:44 <Joe> OK, wilco
15:59:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> tanks, i should be back in 90min or so
16:01:56 <JarnoO> OT ie
16:13:56 <JarnoO> Daisy
16:14:46 <LindaGt> Nice
16:14:57 <LindaGt> I could take cam also
16:16:43 <JarnoO> I'm off for today. Enjoy Bulger
16:17:05 <LindaGt> JarnoO, bye
16:25:24 <ynpvisitor46> what a nice day for Art
16:35:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have had colder days in August.
16:39:57 <ynpvisitor46> well usually it gets to 40 at least, but August can be cold if it gets clear.
16:40:12 <ynpvisitor46> nice and calm today for wind too.
16:45:28 <LindaGt> Kevin L™ 🌵, watching it pour in vegas
16:46:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep. Got a good rainbow here a few minutes ago.
16:46:09 <ynpvisitor46> That is a weird thought Kevin. I hope everyone in the back country stays safe
16:46:28 <ynpvisitor46> or Linda, you mentioned it pouring.
16:46:37 <ynpvisitor46> the rainbow part sounds like a nice benefit
16:46:43 <LindaGt> In Las vegas
16:47:10 <ynpvisitor46> yes, I saw KevinL and thought he said it, yet you were saying it, to him
16:47:21 <ynpvisitor46> are you watching a web cam?
16:47:42 <LindaGt> Watching msnbc
16:47:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The attempt of the race is live on FS1
16:48:01 <ynpvisitor46> they are still attempting to race?
16:48:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. Got stage 1 in and it rained again.
16:49:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Kyle Busch won the truck race last knight and also a late model race at the Bullring Thursday.
16:50:19 <ynpvisitor46> did msnbc show any flooding Linda?
16:50:41 <ynpvisitor61> They’re attempting to remove the bison now
16:50:44 <ynpvisitor46> Dead bison note from Art
16:51:01 <ynpvisitor46> we should watch...
16:51:01 <ynpvisitor61> Trail groomer and LE
16:51:07 <LindaGt> Just commenting on all things going on and that it was raining so much. Christ Matthew's looks like a drowned rat
16:51:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It has been raining pretty good but no real flooding right now.
16:51:28 <ynpvisitor46> ha ha , yes he thinks he is Christ I think
16:51:58 <ynpvisitor46> is anyone on cam?
16:52:44 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor46, hehe juatnsaw my typo
16:52:55 <LindaGt> *just saw
16:53:05 <ynpvisitor46> are you driving Linda?
16:53:16 <LindaGt> No I think maybe joe
16:53:31 <ynpvisitor46> would be interesting to check out the bison removal
16:53:55 <ynpvisitor46> nothing going on, so Joe might have just left it here on GH
16:54:37 <Joe> bison removal?
16:54:48 <ynpvisitor46> look at Art's note Joe
16:54:48 <LindaGt> Might be
16:55:11 <ynpvisitor61> It’s the yellow snow cat
16:55:17 <LindaGt> They should just du omit where the other one was so we can watch
16:55:29 <LindaGt> *dump
16:55:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bison burgers at the Snow Lodge tomorrow.
16:55:48 <ynpvisitor46> yellow snow cat is the removal I think, right 61?
16:56:13 <LindaGt> That's where the cones were
16:56:17 <ynpvisitor46> so not really at end of parking lot
16:56:24 <ynpvisitor46> there it is
16:56:32 <LindaGt> Here it comes, dragging it
16:56:51 <ynpvisitor46> thanks Joe
16:57:13 <ynpvisitor46> that would not have been a good place to have a carcass
16:57:52 <ynpvisitor46> I wonder if it has any wolf bites?
16:58:07 <ynpvisitor46> and where they will take it?
16:58:47 <ynpvisitor46> is that LE that has to do that?
16:59:11 <LindaGt> Wonder if it's on his job description
16:59:24 <ynpvisitor46> a new item for his CV
16:59:43 <ynpvisitor46> hopefully they do not blow any tiller hoses
17:00:12 <ynpvisitor46> definitely not built to pull bison
17:00:36 <ynpvisitor103> Bad year for bison. Seem to be dropping like well bison in a bad year.
17:00:36 <LindaGt> Mind meld - put it in the meadow
17:00:52 <ynpvisitor46> that is wild, they laid the tiller right on it
17:00:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> "What did you do at work today Daddy?"
17:01:18 <ynpvisitor46> yikes, they should take the tiller off
17:01:36 <ynpvisitor103> How do you think they are going to grind it up for bugers?
17:01:36 <ynpvisitor46> hopefully they are not going to lift from the shaft
17:02:07 <ynpvisitor46> I don't think the snowcat can go in the meadow Linda
17:02:33 <ynpvisitor103> I bet they are going to drag it from the neck
17:02:49 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor46, bummer
17:02:59 <ynpvisitor46> if they disconnected the tiller, they would have more to work with
17:03:12 <ynpvisitor46> they are ready to go maybe
17:03:33 <ynpvisitor103> I think they have done this once before
17:03:43 <ynpvisitor46> need a helicopter for your desires Linda
17:03:50 <ynpvisitor7> Legs?
17:04:15 <ynpvisitor7> Neither :)
17:04:29 <ynpvisitor46> here we go
17:04:33 <ynpvisitor103> Maybe put it by bigfoot
17:04:42 <LindaGt> Nope
17:04:44 <ynpvisitor46> fail
17:05:08 <ynpvisitor103> Got to remember to hook the chain
17:05:21 <ynpvisitor46> yeah, that came off kind of easy
17:05:24 <ynpvisitor7> Horns
17:05:49 <LindaGt> Well if it wasnt dead it is now
17:05:59 <ynpvisitor7> :)
17:06:23 <ynpvisitor46> maybe it could lift its head and help them out...
17:07:05 <ynpvisitor46> they need radios
17:07:32 <LindaGt> A pack of wolves would be quicker 😉
17:07:44 <ynpvisitor103> You can not see me in the mirror, I can not see you either
17:08:33 <ynpvisitor46> they'd have to close the basin, at least toward Castle and the path to BH overlook, if they left the carcass there
17:09:01 <LindaGt> I understand
17:09:14 <ynpvisitor46> success
17:09:24 <LindaGt> Follow that biso
17:09:40 <LindaGt> *bison
17:09:44 <ynpvisitor46> amazed he did not stay on snow
17:10:01 <ynpvisitor103> Gives road rash a new meaning
17:10:50 <ynpvisitor46> off he goes, I wonder where they will leave it? Has to be somewhere the snowcat can go
17:11:07 <ynpvisitor46> thanks Joe, for letting us watch
17:11:44 <ynpvisitor46> if they stopped there, we could watch it
17:12:03 <LindaGt> Hopeful
17:12:33 <ynpvisitor46> snowmobiles can go there, so they won't
17:12:42 <LindaGt> No such luck
17:13:24 <LindaGt> Oh
17:13:36 <ynpvisitor46> it would be interesting to know where they think is safe
17:14:25 <ynpvisitor7> Well that was fun!
17:14:31 <LindaGt> Oh well
17:14:33 <Joe> Lost in the steam
17:14:43 <ynpvisitor46> thanks again Joe
17:14:50 <ynpvisitor103> No dog watching for us.
17:14:51 <LindaGt> Thx joe
17:14:54 <Joe> yw
17:16:57 <ynpvisitor7> Meadow a great place. They need to establish a safe route before the snow falls.
17:18:19 <ynpvisitor46> What does that mean 7?
17:38:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> back from dinner. what did I miss?
