07:20:59 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:21:17 <Kat> Looks bigger than a coyote
07:21:29 <Kat> Lone Wolf?
07:21:30 <Dave from B™> Kat, that was my first impression as well
07:22:01 <Dave from B™> He is big for a coyote
07:22:27 <ynpvisitor81> And dark
07:22:51 <lindaG> hound of the Baskerville?
07:22:59 <Dave from B™> Wolf scout out looking for the bison herd
07:23:20 <Kat> Found something to gnaw on!
07:23:54 <Kat> Keeps looking back too - so wonder if there's more

07:27:37 <LindaGt> It does look like a wolf
07:28:48 <Kat> I believe it's a lone black wolf - definitely not coyote
07:30:02 <LindaGt> Should we send a txt?
07:30:16 <Kat> It was hard to see earlier when it first showed up
07:30:23 <LindaGt> As a possible wolf

07:36:20 <LindaGt> Hello lori hello
07:37:26 <Lori S> Just woke up, heard ding, thought it was SB. Lol
07:37:42 <LindaGt> 😃
07:38:46 <CraigC> posing
07:39:12 <CraigC> have you checked this direction for others, that it might be looking at?
07:39:57 <LindaGt> Like magic he disappeared
07:40:40 <CC> interesting to see that all the wolves seem to leave via Castle
07:41:02 <LindaGt> What's on path down there at end?
07:41:49 <LindaGt> There he is
07:41:54 <Kent> Very Nice
07:42:07 <CC> I am on a delay and just saw him again
07:42:24 <Kat> That is exactly the Wapiti path - makes me wonder if that's a Wapiti wolf
07:42:53 <LindaGt> They could call be in thecwoods
07:43:08 <LindaGt> Yikes. All be in the woods
07:43:34 <Kat> It is not t all unusual for 1 or 2 to wander away
07:44:05 <Dave from B™> Many scatter to look for food for the pack
07:44:05 <LindaGt> Kat, at end of castle path seemed to be something in the snow
07:44:10 <Kat> Well, that was fun!
07:44:22 <Lori S> Have to walk my loopy Canis. Brb
07:44:29 <Kent> Surrounding counties have asked that the park not open on the 17th. I understand but am sad
07:45:14 <Kat> Don't see anything Linda
07:45:57 <Kat> Dave from B™, very true
07:46:11 <LindaGt> Something dark at end there in snow
07:46:19 <CraigC> hey Dave

08:48:10 <Kat> :)
08:54:32 <LindaGt> Morning kevin
08:55:16 <Kat> Hi KevinL
08:55:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning.
09:01:24 <LindaGt> Kevin L™ 🌵, we had a lone wolf earlier
09:02:22 <CraigC> Steamboat is social distancing like a good geyser
09:03:39 <Kat> :)
09:06:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was reading that Linda. Looks like Bob came back here again and nailed a quail.
09:08:14 <LindaGt> Oh no not the quail. 😥 but is very hungry.
09:08:40 <ynpvisitor8> Wow, nice day.
09:08:41 <LindaGt> I'm sure it's a case of habitat loss
09:09:07 <LindaGt> Hes moved into your habitat
09:09:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If I catch him, he will become a coat.
09:10:08 <LindaGt> If quail are congregating in your yard, it will continue ue to return
09:12:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is what we are hoping. We have 3 traps out for him.
09:14:13 <Joe> complete wolf video fron when the cam left Geyser hill until the wolf left, nice camera work KAT
09:14:58 <LindaGt> Joe, yay! Thanks!
09:17:42 <Joe> sorry it took so long, one really has to see well to press all the proper buttons along the way
09:17:59 <Kat> Joe, Thanks so much!
09:18:12 <Joe> yw
09:18:31 <Kat> Joe, Hope you are feeling some beteer
09:18:37 <Kat> better*
09:20:19 <CraigC> Joe, how do you know you captured the wolf and not a tree?
09:20:24 <Joe> Thanks but I am not, it is getting harder to see, I hope they can get something done soon.
09:21:07 <CraigC> Joe, what's the next step?
09:21:54 <Joe> Craig that is questionable but a huge magnifying glass helps right now
09:23:00 <CraigC> Sherlock Joe?
09:23:28 <Joe> more laser surgury to kill the new veins that are growing in the wrong places trying to supply blood to the eye
09:24:15 <CraigC> how soon will you go in to have that done?
09:26:12 <Joe> they will make a cecision on the 31st when they measure the pressure in the eye to see where the medication and drops are taking it
09:26:42 <Joe> decision**
09:26:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hope the best for you Joe.
09:26:52 <Dave from B™> Good luck Joe!
09:27:11 <Joe> Thanks,
09:27:26 <Kat> Thoughts and prayers Joe!
09:27:35 <Joe> one fun thing after another :)
09:27:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Makes you feel like a used car.
09:28:38 <Joe> :):thumbsup: an Edsel
09:29:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
09:29:54 <Dave from B™> Isn't that something an artists paints on?:)
09:29:59 <Dave from B™> artist*
09:30:46 <Joe> I think they painted on those :)
09:30:51 <Kat> :lol:
09:31:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How would you like to be the kid he named it after?
09:31:57 <Joe> that would be bad
09:33:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess he is the president of the company now.
09:36:41 <ynpvisitor36> Anyone have a capture of this mornings canid?
09:37:11 <Joe>
09:44:49 <Joe> painted Edsel
09:49:51 <The Big O> Good closeup
09:50:03 <Kat> :)
09:51:38 <ynpvisitor36> ty, Joe
09:57:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Does anyone remember the Chrysler turbine car?
10:00:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hear Perry Mason music. Guess I get OF as my first geyser today.
10:02:33 <Kat> Controls released - wasn't watching the time!
10:02:54 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, Have a good afternoon!
10:03:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You too.
10:03:40 <Joe> I was on one of those gray cruise ships when Chrysler put out that car
10:05:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Uncle's brother was chosen to drive one of those. They were really fun. Didn't need a street sweeper after it drove down the road.
10:05:46 <Joe> :)
10:06:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The sound was strange when you were riding in it.
10:07:13 <Kat> OF 1006
10:07:25 <Joe> I thought they tried using it at nascar/Daytona??
10:07:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They may have
10:07:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This almost looks like a B&W picture.
10:08:14 <Kat> It cool looking
10:08:26 <Kat> It's*
10:19:58 <Joe> Whatevwr will we do? Peeps production is shutting down March 25th ;)
10:20:57 <Joe> Whatever ***
10:23:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now there will be a run on Peeps!
10:24:43 <Rice> Good, Peeps are gross!
10:25:37 <Dave from B™> 1000 peeps = 1 roll of TP
10:27:47 <LindaGt> Dave from B™, hehe is that new math
10:28:28 <Dave from B™> Which would you rather have?
10:28:48 <Dave from B™> 1000 peeps would probably kill you:)
10:28:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They had some root beer peeps last year that were good.
10:39:33 <Betty> morning guys
10:39:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty.
10:40:05 <CraigC> hey Betty
10:40:28 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵, CraigC, LindaGt, Dave from B™, Ryan(-167)
10:40:53 <KevinS> Betty, good morning
10:41:19 <Betty> hi KevinS, sorry I missed you :)
10:41:44 <Betty> and Rice !
10:42:57 <Dave from B™> Ryan, you're late...detention for you tonight:)
10:43:38 <Dave from B™> And, enough with the excuse of being in some hole in the ground:D
10:44:04 <LindaGt> Hi Betty, KevinS,
10:44:47 <Ryan(-167)> Haha.
10:45:00 <Ryan(-167)> I actually was out in the woods this morning doing a geological recon for work.
10:45:22 <Ryan(-167)> I found the largest tree fossil I have ever seen. 8ft long, 9 inches in diameter, and roughly 190 degrees of the trunk!
10:45:29 <Dave from B™> wow
10:45:48 <Ryan(-167)> It was huge and left me speechless for a bit.
10:46:07 <Ryan(-167)> Just posted a photo of it on Facebook. Flickr later tonight.
10:47:18 <Joe> Funny, Ryan is always trying to get in a hole in the ground, an most of us are trying to staynout of a hole in the ground. :)
10:47:51 <Joe> and**
10:48:53 <Ryan(-167)> I am at 492 cave trips and wondering where 500 will be.
10:50:03 <Ryan(-167)> That is averaging one cave trip every 4.56 days since I started 6.5 years ago.
10:50:15 <Betty> wow
10:50:25 <Ryan(-167)> Not counting the roughly 700 I did as a guide at Laurel Caverns.
10:50:54 <ynpvisitor53> Be a tourist and do Carlsbad, Oregon Caves, Lewis & Clark Caverns, or some other comercial location.
10:51:03 <Ryan(-167)> Also I am convinced the SB logger got moved back into place somehow.
10:51:41 <Ryan(-167)> I have done Carlsbad both as a tourist and not.
10:51:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aren't there some caverns south of Jackson?
10:52:26 <Ryan(-167)> Yeah the Tetons have some
10:52:28 <ynpvisitor53> A lava tube on one of the islands
10:52:40 <Ryan(-167)>
10:53:00 <ynpvisitor53> Yogi's cave at Jellystone
10:53:07 <Ryan(-167)> Thats the Guadalupe Room, off trail in Carlsbad Caverns on a special permission NPS trip in 2016.
10:54:03 <Dave from B™> Isn't no drop below 30C weird for SB logger?
10:54:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice
10:54:29 <Ryan(-167)> I know where 500 is going to be. It's going to be in Laurel Caverns where I did my first photo trip in 2013 into.
10:54:35 <ynpvisitor53> Sealion Cave, take a carbon filter mask, they stink.
10:54:56 <Ryan(-167)> And I've spent thousands of hours in that cave, more time than all over cave trips combined.
10:55:05 <Ryan(-167)> Been to Sea Lion Caves. Got stuck on the elevator.
10:55:50 <Betty> hahahaha
10:57:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So your elevator didn't make it to the top floor?
10:58:20 <Ryan(-167)> I have been in caves in Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, Pinar Del Rio (Cuba), and Artemisa (Cuba).
10:58:24 <Ryan(-167)> I think thats all of them.
10:59:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not Nevada?
10:59:28 <Ryan(-167)> Nah. Almost went to Lehman Caves once. Skipped it to do volunteer work at Timpanogos Cave.
10:59:50 <Ryan(-167)> Hawaii is on the very near future.
11:00:32 <Ryan(-167)> Big Island lava tubes and skylight rappelling.
11:01:27 <Betty> I missed Lehman cave 2 years ago, last space was for 1 guy, but I was there with my brother :-(
11:02:12 <Ryan(-167)> I actually found a small cave today and went in. That makes 493 trips into 227 caves.
11:02:22 <Betty> I see the Timpanogos Cave sign each time we pass SLC
11:02:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is a pretty place but a good walk to it.
11:03:07 <Ryan(-167)> Going out on a walk today to map some limestone. Will see a cluster of small caves. I can not go into more than five of them though.
11:03:15 <Dave from B™> Have you been to Kevin's "Man Cave" yet?:)
11:03:35 <Betty> the coop?
11:03:43 <Dave from B™> His depot
11:03:44 <Eric> Morning all
11:03:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Eric
11:03:55 <Betty> morning Eric
11:03:56 <Dave from B™> Ryan, is on a 5 cave a day limit
11:04:01 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
11:04:15 <Ryan(-167)> No, that would make 498 trips. (6 in one day actually)
11:04:26 <Ryan(-167)> I have a trip planned on Saturday, which would be 499.
11:04:33 <Ryan(-167)> So I can do Laurel on sunday for 500.
11:04:42 <Eric> Hi Betty, Dave, Kevin :-D
11:05:19 <Eric> So was it really a wolf this morning?
11:05:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is a good one on Mt Charleston but not open. It was found by highway workers in the early 60's.
11:05:32 <Ryan(-167)> My record for one day is 11 trips.
11:05:40 <Ryan(-167)> Into 4 caves if I remember right.
11:06:23 <Ryan(-167)> Three were through trips, so we did a trip through from one entrance to another and then back again (2 trips per cave).
11:06:47 <Ryan(-167)> Then the other five were bounces of a pit we went to.
11:07:18 <Ryan(-167)> Down one pit and back up out another. I count it as a trip if I cross a drip line or my head goes under the ground and then completely back up out.
11:08:26 <Eric> Does the pack usually split up like that to check out locations? I don't know a ton about wolf pack behavior.
11:09:50 <ynpvisitor56> Eric, Art seems to be the most knowledgeable person I know
11:13:55 <Eric> Me too 56...but haven't seen him here in a while
11:14:01 <Eric> Hey Craig and Jake!
11:14:19 <Betty> hey Jake
11:15:07 <Dave from B™> Eric, think of a lone wolf as going out on a scouting mission looking for food for the entire pack
11:15:35 <Dave from B™> It would be a waste of energy for all wolves to traverse over the same area looking for food
11:16:01 <Dave from B™> If they are all together, they are either on a carcass or moving locations
11:17:18 <Jake> wow, just saw the wolf capture. If the park stays closed, we'll probably see more
11:17:56 <Jake> btw, "Lone Wolf One" sounds like a 1985 Chuck Norris movie
11:17:59 <ynpvisitor53> So how many caves have you been in?
11:18:14 <Dave from B™> Makes you wonder if this is an unusal offseasopn or has there always been wolf traffic at OF but we couldn't see it from the old cam location?
11:19:45 <Jake> both. takes a keen eye to spot wolves even with this cam location, black wolf on white background helps!
11:22:51 <Eric> We probably would not have seen those wolves with the old cam.
11:23:06 <Betty> nice camwork on the wolf
11:23:16 <Eric> Definitely not the kill site where they ate the carcass
11:24:05 <Jake> I have been out of the loop, was there a carcass on cam?
11:24:16 <Dave from B™> Yep...having that meadow in view should mean many more animal sightings from this cam
11:24:19 <Betty> yes
11:24:35 <Dave from B™> Jake, it was about 6-8 weeks aog, I believe
11:24:41 <Eric> Yep Jake...we had the entire wapiti pack on the cam chomping on a bison carcass for multiple days.
11:25:01 <Eric> Beautiful footage with all 18 or 19 wolves in it.
11:26:16 <Eric> Getting close on BH...I bet within the next 6 hours :-P
11:26:19 <Ryan(-167)> 53, I have been in 227.
11:26:45 <Jake> omg, Mar 6 video on Joe N's page
11:27:10 <Eric> Yep...pretty stellar video.
11:27:13 <Betty> Jake, look at event non geyser related from Jan 25th and March 6th, there are attachments from Joe
11:28:11 <ynpvisitor53> Kevin has a chicken we could use for bait.
11:29:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not anymore.
11:32:00 <Dave from B™> Kevin, did you eat your chicken because Costco was out of chicken?
11:32:07 <Eric> You making dumplings to go with it? :-D
11:32:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I didn't eat them. Bobcoat did.
11:34:00 <Eric> This was always a great restaurant near me growing up:
11:34:06 <Betty> bobcoat....did you get it , kill it and have a new coat now? :-)
11:34:15 <Eric> The had the best chicken and dumplings!
11:35:02 <Eric> ahhh bummer...coyotes and snakes would always get our rabbits.
11:35:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hopeful thinking Betty. Have .22 subsonic by door and 3 traps set.
11:35:11 <ynpvisitor53>
11:35:14 <Eric> You need a meaner rooster :-P
11:36:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I used to have one that would have taken care of that cat.
11:37:32 <Betty> OF
11:39:17 <Betty> did you adopt the one from Hawaii volcano cam?
11:39:39 <Eric> haha....I miss that webcam!
11:40:06 <Dave from B™> Alright, is time for SB...HIT IT!!
11:40:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Had this one about 20 years ago. Huge Rhode Island red. Really nasty men.
11:40:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> thin was about 3 feet tall.
11:40:41 <Betty> can I deal all that pressure.......??
11:40:53 <Eric> Temps definitely looking good on the logger!
11:41:13 <Dave from B™> You can do it, Betty!
11:41:48 <Eric> Checkout these turkeys I ran into on my hike this weekend!
11:41:58 <Betty> ok, I step in my SB gear...where is my floppy hat?
11:42:05 <Eric> They were close to 4ft tall! Bigger than a small child.
11:43:00 <Betty> we stepped off the road :-)
11:44:24 <Betty> those are monsters, Eric
11:44:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice Eric
11:49:54 <ynpvisitor53> Well, enjoy the day.
11:50:17 <Betty> bye, 53
11:50:27 <Eric> cya 53
11:57:17 <KevinS> Betty, Don't let the SB pressure build up on you. Just push the release button.
11:58:03 <Dave from B™> Press here.....:!:
12:01:31 <JarnoO> afternoon all
12:01:40 <Betty> oops, that was the Pump button, sorry
12:01:40 <JarnoO> evening Betty
12:01:52 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:03:35 <Eric> Hi Jarno
12:03:50 <Eric> You working from home now Betty?
12:04:00 <Betty> no
12:04:05 <Eric> :-(
12:04:36 <Betty> Lab work cannot be done at home
12:05:00 <Eric> Our state is on total lockdown...even businesses. Unless you have essential things you have to do, you must stay home.
12:06:51 <Betty> we are allowed to do to work that cannot be done in homeoffice. But we have restrictions to stand close to 1 other person.
12:07:28 <Eric> You still riding the train in too?
12:08:09 <Betty> trains are almost empty. I never had more space on a train
12:08:45 <Betty> easy to stay away more than 6 feet
12:08:54 <Eric> Thats good.
12:09:14 <Ryan(-167)> Not sure I'd pay attention to a lock down.
12:09:41 <Ryan(-167)> There are two worlds existing here. One thats panicking and shut down, and one that still functions mostly normal.
12:10:07 <Betty> we can go outside and meet 1 more person that´s not belonging to your household
12:10:21 <Rice> I run a feed mill for dairy cows, untill people stop drinking milk and eating butter and ice cream we are 100%
12:10:23 <Ryan(-167)> Eh, a third, one where you're isolated form it. I loathe the first, spend nine hours in the second, and make my home as much the third as possible.
12:10:43 <Ryan(-167)> Yup, I work in a metal production facility. Until we dont need metals, were at 100%, too.
12:10:49 <Betty> we are not panicking here
12:10:55 <Ryan(-167)> I meant the USA.
12:11:05 <Ryan(-167)> We panic when someone claps too loudly.
12:11:15 <Betty> but we managed to slow down new infections
12:11:48 <Rice> My kids and wife are going stir crazy at home.
12:11:57 <Eric> Thats good Betty! New York will probably surpass your entire country in the next couple days because people are being stupid!
12:12:07 <Betty> ok, just a few people panic on loss of toilet paper :-p
12:12:15 <JarnoO> hehe
12:12:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am lucky that I have a lot of open desert near me.
12:12:23 <Ryan(-167)> The US is that bodybuilder that talks a mean game and makes a solid face, but has five schizophrenic personalities and runs away screaming from a spider.
12:12:33 <Rice> NY City, not upstate, we have 3 confirmed cases in my county.
12:12:36 <Eric> Thanks for being out in it Rice! I know many critical jobs to support our entire supply chain are necessary.
12:12:36 <Betty> lol Kevin
12:13:08 <Eric> Right...but those 25k infected will translate into the entire state of NY in the near future.
12:13:51 <Betty> our medical situation is very good, so we have not too much deaths from corona
12:14:19 <Ryan(-167)> This coming from the Pacific Northwest :)
12:14:26 <JarnoO> corona cases on ICD are dropping a bit in the Netherlands as well :)
12:14:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was watching a train page and they were talking about no Sears catalog when we really need one on the chat. One guy mentioned he tried the Sears web page but the results were not good.
12:14:35 <Dave from B™> It appears YNP is now been closed. Anyone have a specific link about this?
12:14:42 <Rice> I am moving to Libya, they have 0 cases there!
12:15:00 <Ryan(-167)> It is here. It is likely everywhere.
12:15:22 <Ryan(-167)> It is everywhere in this country. And its every one persons job to protect themselves.
12:15:26 <JarnoO> Press release from YNP and Grand Teton:
12:15:44 <Eric> We are a community of people's not all about just protecting yourself.
12:15:49 <Betty> 100% correct, Ryan
12:16:10 <Eric> It's a communicable disease...that can be transmitted by careless people.
12:16:23 <Betty> protect yourself to protect others, Eric
12:16:28 <Ryan(-167)> And those people are not protecting themselves, then.
12:16:32 <KevinS> Rice, North Korea says they have not had a single case either... Liars
12:16:44 <Eric> That is true Betty...but people are going out like nothing is going on...being stupid.
12:16:49 <Ryan(-167)> You can not expect someone else to protect you.
12:17:01 <Betty> no, that´s stupid
12:17:06 <CraigC> govt needs to rule with consideration for the lowest common denominator
12:17:08 <Ryan(-167)> Those people are not protecting themslves.
12:17:20 <Rice> If the numbers in the US follow the percentages in Italy, 200,000 people will be infected and 15,600 will die. 61,200 people died from the flu last year.
12:17:34 <Eric> The problem is they are affecting everyone Ryan...
12:17:39 <Dave from B™> Thanks Jarno
12:17:41 <Ryan(-167)> The government needs no more power until this orange cheeto is out.
12:17:59 <Ryan(-167)> Eric, I can not stop them and neither can you.
12:18:03 <CraigC> governors are also "government"
12:18:14 <Ryan(-167)> No one will stop others from getting out and doing what they want.
12:18:23 <Eric> But we have a government in place that is supposed to do that.
12:18:35 <Ryan(-167)> *You can not expect others to not be stupid for your benefit.*
12:18:51 <Ryan(-167)> *You can not expect the government to 100% protect you from idiocy.*
12:19:12 <Betty> most people here in Germany avoid to go out, just as Government recommends
12:19:18 <Ryan(-167)> *Wash your damn hands, don't touch your face, and dont trust any surface you have not seen being cleaned.*
12:19:29 <Eric> Well, I expect the government to arrest murders and robbers...why not expect them to deal with these morons.
12:19:37 <JarnoO> it's fairly quiet on the roads here too, Betty
12:19:39 <CraigC> Eric, yep
12:20:06 <LindaG> I've resorted to cleaning my garage, just to have something to do
12:20:10 <Ryan(-167)> I refuse to allow others to be arrested for some vague concept of public safety.
12:20:11 <Ryan(-167)> Period.
12:20:11 <Eric> We have a national guard...put them to work and lock down the roads if we have to.
12:20:33 <Ryan(-167)> I refuse to aupport*
12:20:39 <Ryan(-167)> support*
12:21:00 <Eric> Well, lets see if you toon changes when people around you that you care about start dieing...
12:21:16 <Ryan(-167)> You want to arrest someone? Have a law, have them breaking it, and take it to court.
12:21:24 <JarnoO> I might actually start doing some leftover paint job in my room some 2 years after I had finished the main bulk of it
12:21:26 <Ryan(-167)> There it is. "How will you feel when...?"
12:21:28 <CraigC> gotta consider those that need to be protected, the vulnerable, and support whatever needs to happen for their sake
12:21:53 <Eric> We have laws...our states are now locked down by laws. The governor has an order in place to stop all non-essential travel...which is legal.
12:21:57 <Ryan(-167)> Half of my immediate family is over 70. My family is taking steps to protect them.
12:22:33 <Ryan(-167)> I have more than enough people in my life who could die. I offered and they asked for help and cooperation.
12:22:37 <CraigC> how about considering those that you and your family are not protecting, who is protecting them if they dont have people like you
12:22:47 <Ryan(-167)> I can not, and will not, expect other citizens to do that for me as well.
12:22:58 <LindaG> My husband is not a well man I worry about him getting g it from me. So I stay home.
12:23:17 <Ryan(-167)> I am not saying you *shouldn't*. I am saying that I can't expect it.
12:23:37 <Ryan(-167)> I have to go to work every day still. I have to get gas, groceries, go to the bank. I can not stay home and stay in shelter.
12:23:51 <Eric> You choose not to.
12:23:53 <CraigC> you say you dont support the govt taking the role of holding people accountable that put others at risk
12:23:54 <Ryan(-167)> I have to use common sense to protect myself, which by extent protects others.
12:24:18 <Ryan(-167)> Craig, I dont support the government holing people accountable to vague laws.
12:24:19 <Betty> I don´t expect it too, but I sure HOPE they do. For the benefit of the people...
12:24:30 <Ryan(-167)> We have counties around us who are shut down, shelter in place ordewred.
12:24:37 <CraigC> vague laws you say, risking lives I say
12:24:45 <Ryan(-167)> The word of the law is pointless. Its so easily circumvented.
12:25:17 <Ryan(-167)> So many exceptions to what you're allowed to be out doing: exercising, getting food/gas, medical trips, and visiting family.
12:25:22 <Eric> Entitlement...uggg
12:25:46 <Ryan(-167)> Those are written into both the WV and PA stay in place orders. That will *not* stop people from going and doing what they want to do.
12:25:57 <Dave from B™> is really a lawless society today... even before the virus
12:26:06 <Ryan(-167)> And, no, Eric - I can *not* choose to not work.
12:26:13 <CraigC> giving up doesn't fly in my view
12:26:28 <Ryan(-167)> I have 120 thousand dollars in student loan debt and a rent payment to make. I can not do my job from home and I have to be paid.
12:26:32 <CraigC> people deserve protection
12:27:01 <CraigC> civilization stands for something, and govt has a real role in it]
12:27:11 <Eric> I agree Craig...and I gotta work too :-(
12:27:44 <Ryan(-167)> And I give those around me and myself as much protection as I can. But I can not expect that from others and I do not support orders which do not enumerate exactly how those orders will be enforced.
12:28:02 <CraigC> rather see police turn to martial law than locking up dope smokers and gays for marrying
12:28:32 <Ryan(-167)> And ours are not. Everyone here is staying in voluntarily. Those who wish to travel and do what they want can do so and very easily step around the existing orders.
12:29:18 <Ryan(-167)> I have not given up, far from it. I just state that I can not expect protection from someone else. ITs nice if it is there, but I can NOT expect it.
12:29:59 <CraigC> govt is not "someone else" in my view, unless we are having some misunderstanding
12:29:59 <Ryan(-167)> I have to be protect myself. And everyone else in my family is protecting themselves. I will never NOT help someone and I wont hesitate to ask for assistance should I need it.
12:30:51 <Ryan(-167)> But I can not just assume that another citizen will act in my best interest and I can NOT support the idea that they can be detained for vague and easily negotiable orders.
12:32:08 <Ryan(-167)> FWIW: I have cancelled all caving plans from two weeks ago until further notice. I had people who were visiting from Atlanta who aren't now.
12:32:38 <Betty> I see a lot of people e,g. in the supermarket that avoid to get close to others, or they do use hand sanitizer. Almost everybody is sensible
12:32:59 <Ryan(-167)> I also am not seeing friends and family, and am suffering from that reality. I also have to understand that if one of my grandparents gets sick despite their isolation, and goes to the hospital, that I will not see them before htey die is thats the end.
12:33:48 <Ryan(-167)> Most everyone here is sensible, too, Betty. And I support closing businesses and facilities. I do not support blanket controls on how individuals conduct their daily lives.
12:35:16 <CraigC> enacting controls based upon how those of us here are acting is short sighted.... it is the stupid irresponsible people that need to be considered
12:35:53 <CraigC> lowest common denominator.... they are dangerous
12:36:06 <Ryan(-167)> They are always dangerous.
12:36:13 <CraigC> and?
12:36:18 <CraigC> we lock them up
12:36:38 <Ryan(-167)> For definable violations that can't be side-stepped.
12:36:41 <Betty> yes, Ryan. I really can relate. I´m not able to see my family at the moment. I don´t have a partner, so it is really hard at times. I only contact my brother Thomas
12:36:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There have been 4x the fatalities from DUI in Nevada and corona virus this year. It is time to ban all alcohol.
12:37:35 <Ryan(-167)> Texting while driving, drunk driving, speeding, etc are all things that have definable violations that can be proven that you did them.
12:38:09 <Ryan(-167)> We have a shelter in place law here in PA. But you are allowed to exercise. If someone leaves their house and goes hiking in a state park how exactly do you determine if they are there to exercise or not?
12:38:39 <Ryan(-167)> If you pull a random car over for being out in a shelter-in-place law: how do you prove what they are out to do?
12:38:58 <Dave from B™> ..
12:39:04 <Ryan(-167)> You can't. So while I support CDC reccomendations, and requests to the common public I can not support attempts to enforce something you can't prove.
12:39:07 <CraigC> ...
12:39:26 <LindaG> In Jersey they are going after something a little more obvious, like large gatherings
12:39:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> .._.
12:40:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I feel bad for anyone who has had a wedding planned now.
12:40:39 <Ryan(-167)> Linda, that's fair. That is a definable violation.
12:40:54 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, yeah, or worse, upcoming funerals
12:41:06 <Ryan(-167)> If you set a group limit of 5 people and you see 6, then you have direct proof that a definable violation occured and you can go break that up.
12:41:19 <CraigC> hard to postpone a funeral for 3 months
12:41:30 <KevinS> And I feell bad for anyone who has reservations in the park... Keep going SB. Maybe latter in the year we can meet again.
12:42:00 <Ryan(-167)> If someone is sitting out on a beach, how do you prove what they are out there for? Craig, Eric, I am specifically asking you guys. How do you prove these violations that someone is out for unessential activities?
12:42:09 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, new view at tehachapi 😉
12:42:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Fog?
12:42:35 <Dave from B™> In Billings, no funeral services at gravesite. only "close" family at funeral church service
12:42:44 <CraigC> if I die, you can pay your respects as you enter the West Gate and pass the Madison River, wave and smile
12:42:46 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, weather vane
12:43:51 <KevinS> CraigC, I would rather meet you at SB
12:44:02 <KevinS> Alive
12:44:09 <CraigC> KevinS, me too, but we shall see
12:44:24 <CraigC> gotta consider all outcomes
12:44:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a longtime friend die about a week ago (nor the virus). Feel really bad because we couldn't have the funeral public.
12:44:59 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, I'm sorry 😥
12:45:10 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, sorry
12:45:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I also had a trip planned to see the Grandkids in Idaho. That isn't going to happen. :(
12:45:24 <Ryan(-167)> Sorry Kevin, a coworker here just went through the same thing.
12:45:25 <Dave from B™> CraigC, you need to get out on your bike and relieve some jog Sunday did wonders for me
12:45:47 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I will, it is raining today. I have been doing lots of yardwork
12:46:37 <Dave from B™> The best thing you can do to fight the virus is get plenty of rest and exercise
12:46:41 <LindaG> I'm still in denial about GC, but it is what it is.
12:46:49 <Dave from B™> and wash your hands
12:46:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You got our rain Craig?
12:47:09 <Ryan(-167)> Keep that immune system up, and protect the largest protective organ in your body: your skin.
12:47:56 <Dave from B™> exactly
12:48:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was going to do yardwork yesterday and it was raining. Of course today it is clear. :P
12:50:53 <Dave from B™> My wife and I are dealing with the issue we have been discussing regarding someone sick. My mom has taken another turn for the worse, and since we can't go visit her, we may just yank her from her and bring her home to die
12:51:36 <Katie> I'm sorry, Dave.
12:52:01 <Dave from B™> My wife is being allowed to see her this afternoon to see if this is the best thing to do
12:52:04 <Ryan(-167)> Damn, Dave. I am so sorry.
12:52:19 <CraigC> :(
12:52:20 <Dave from B™> It's okay. I don't want my mom to suffer anymore.
12:52:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is SOOOOOO hard even when they have proper care.
12:52:52 <CraigC> I havent seen my mom in a month. When it is warm enough I will take my own camp chair and go meet her at her driveway
12:53:09 <Dave from B™> We are getting lots of "advice" from her 2 sisters and brother. It has been real stressful not being able to see her for ourselves; so we can see how she is doing.
12:54:30 <CraigC> Dave from B™, best wishes
12:54:46 <JarnoO> where's that steam on the left coming from? Is that Castle's?
12:54:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Dad went from driving on June 3rd to dying on July 26th. It can happen fast.
12:55:38 <JarnoO> hm, not Castle's. Must've been something else
12:55:42 <Dave from B™> Thanks, CraigC and everyone else here.
12:56:06 <Ryan(-167)> So here is another question: what do you do for people who suffer from severe mental illnesses exacerbated by isolation?
12:56:28 <CraigC> Ryan(-167), I am right here, I can hear you guys
12:56:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Is that Riverside?
12:56:41 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha CraigC
12:56:51 <JarnoO> I don't see Riverside, Kevin
12:57:07 <Ryan(-167)> I meant myself. The last ten days have been a real struggle.
12:57:15 <CraigC> Ryan(-167), we do this
12:57:28 <CraigC> we joke and play how we can
12:57:30 <Dave from B™> Ryan, we have to be in this together
12:57:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just keep a sense of humor Ryan. This event will pass and you will be stronger for it.
12:57:54 <JarnoO> Arty ie I think
12:58:02 <Dave from B™> My mental state is no where close to what it was 2 weeks ago. Find joy in what you can
12:58:09 <Ryan(-167)> This is really giving my medications and my known coping skills a re real workout. Text and phone conversations do not help as much as they do for others.
12:58:54 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure where I'd be without my wife for support
12:58:59 <Ryan(-167)> And so I go out with a small group of people. We hike, cave, etc. And I get blasted for it sometimes. And I resent receiving that for taking care of myself.
12:59:35 <Dave from B™> Ryan, how amount nightly Skype Sput "Board Meetings"?
12:59:39 <Dave from B™> about*
12:59:50 <Ryan(-167)> Given how I feel after not seeing my girlfriend for two weeks... I can empathize, Dave. After four years together...
12:59:58 <Ryan(-167)> The Sputs are some of the sources of this stress :P
13:00:10 <Ryan(-167)> We're best friends, but that doesnt mean we share views.
13:00:14 <Betty> this chat is always a joy in hard times for me :-)
13:00:26 <ynpvisitor79> :heart:
13:00:28 <Ryan(-167)> I've had to respectfully reduce contact with some.
13:00:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I understand totally Ryan. Once I retied I went from contact with hundreds of people to almost none. One I lost most of my hearing I was really isolated. Chat page helps a lot.
13:01:01 <CraigC> when I read some of the gazer stuff, "Lighten up, Francis" comes to mind.... lots of being too serius for my taste
13:01:19 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I understand. I have 2 nieces (they are sisters) who no longer talk to each other because of the last Presidential election.
13:01:29 <Ryan(-167)> The point I am trying to make is that you can't legislate how someone else should act down to the minutae of their lives. Even in a pandemic.
13:01:45 <Ryan(-167)> One person's non-essential recreation is another person's lifeline.
13:02:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 100% correct Ryan
13:02:12 <Betty> yep
13:03:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One thing I have found is that if you help others you soon forget your own problems.
13:03:09 <Ryan(-167)> If we had a martial law lock down here, I'd put a cardboard cut out of myself in the window and take my chances hiking.
13:03:12 <CraigC> Breaking News: Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India has announced “a total ban of coming out of your homes” for 3 weeks in the nation of 1.3 billion people.
13:03:57 <JarnoO> yeah - so now I can add India to the list of potential new corona virus outbreaks due to isolating all of their people
13:04:15 <Ryan(-167)> If I was contained to the house for three weeks I'd legit have a solid chance of committing suicide. Or relapsing into alcohol abuse.
13:05:02 <CraigC> pop tarts
13:05:03 <Ryan(-167)> Even when I have been sick in bed unable to move I have problems after about five days. I've gone hiking with fever reducers.
13:05:26 <ynpvisitor52> Park is now closed to all visitors.......
13:05:37 <CraigC> ynpvisitor52, finally
13:06:01 <CraigC> of
13:06:17 <Dave from B™> Yep...I'm buying a place in Cooke City, so I can go to the park:)
13:07:04 <CraigC> watch all your videos of SB and other thermals
13:07:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do have great stuff I can do indoors. I make pens and work on railroad models. Keeps me sane. (I used to take care of chickens...)
13:07:12 <Betty> can´t you open a fish market in OF area? :-)
13:07:26 <CraigC> wb Joe
13:07:38 <ynpvisitor26> I am glad it closed!!
13:07:44 <Joe> tks
13:08:56 <Dave from B™> I think they should have allowed only 10 people into the park at a time
13:09:08 <JarnoO> OF short
13:09:18 <Betty> Ryan, we are still allowed to go outside to have a walk in the sun or exercise. You just have to be alone or in company of only 1 other person
13:10:00 <Betty> and stay away about 6 feet from each other
13:10:09 <CraigC> I have a few friends that have done drive-by visits, they stay in their cars and I talk to them from my sidewalk
13:10:30 <ynpvisitor79> :heart:
13:10:37 <Betty> sounds good Craig
13:10:47 <KevinS> Kevin L™ 🌵, I have a box full of pen making supplies I got with a lathe I bought at an auction.
13:11:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you done one Kevin?
13:11:22 <ynpvisitor63> This will be the one time the park closed but the cam stays up!!!
13:11:23 <Betty> must be the name then :-)
13:11:30 <KevinS> No. Not my thing.
13:12:07 <ynpvisitor63> Here’s to the cam functioning these next weeks.
13:12:09 <CraigC> KevinS, have you made any anti-Dracula spikes?
13:12:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are fun and easy. You get to work with some expensive exotic woods that you couldn't do otherwise.
13:13:02 <KevinS> Kevin L, PM me your number and I will dig themm out of the shed and send you pictures. If you want them, I can arrange that too.
13:13:35 <Dave from B™> Just don't ship them thru Phoenix
13:13:38 <CraigC> no one entered Arty...
13:13:48 <KevinS> CraigC, Amazingly, I have not even done a project on the lathe.
13:14:24 <CraigC> KevinS, why did you buy it, what was your intent?
13:15:06 <ynpvisitor52> Can someone tell OF and SB that they no longer need to erupt as there will be no one to see them.....except the cam of course.
13:15:13 <KevinS> I do lots of woodwork projects. Walnut round tables currently.
13:15:44 <JarnoO> #52, that's a bad idea. Especially for SB
13:17:44 <Joe> no :daisy: today?
13:19:29 <JarnoO> OT ie
13:19:50 <CraigC> JarnoO, I believe your arty post was legit... are you going to enter it?
13:19:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Haven't been able to catch it Joe.
13:20:37 <Joe> tks
13:20:39 <JarnoO> Craig, done
13:20:46 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
13:23:44 <Joe> i should have looked at the replay before asking that question, now I feel stupid :)

13:49:37 <JarnoO> visibility's going to be poor for a while
13:50:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Grand would be good right now
13:51:48 <Kat> Wow- here it comes!!
13:55:37 <Dave from B™> here what comes?
13:56:04 <Katie> Storm
14:08:42 <ynpvisitor55> it's just squalls moving in and out
14:08:59 <ynpvisitor55> Glad you turned comments off on the FB post Katie.
14:16:14 <LindaG> Wakeup old faithful
14:17:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
14:17:55 <LindaG> Its alive
14:18:16 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, there was fog, you were right
14:21:24 <LindaG> OF
14:21:44 <LindaG> a slow rise
14:26:57 <Kitt> nice splash bee
14:27:55 <Dave from B™> Welcome back to chat, Kitt
14:28:29 <Kitt> hello
14:28:42 <Kitt> I have seen 1.5 beehive eruptions
14:29:41 <Kitt> 2 days ago I logged in to see Beehive and then forgot that was why I was on the computer and read news reports instead
14:30:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bummer.
14:30:01 <Kitt> an hour later I realized I had missed the Beehive eruption
14:30:11 <Dave from B™> watching BH is more fun
14:30:21 <Betty> hi Kitt
14:30:28 <Kitt> we did get our travel laundry done
14:31:20 <Kitt> We really enjoyed our trip to New Zealand and Australia
14:31:28 <Kitt> we hope to return someday
14:32:03 <Kitt> I was fascinated by all of the huge trees there
14:32:13 <Dave from B™> Glad you enjoyedi t, Kitt
14:35:02 <Kitt> now we are doing chores around the house while we self quarantine
14:36:47 <Kitt> at least our weather has been decent
14:37:38 <visitor52> Is there decent weather for quarantine?
14:37:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is called rain and snow.
14:38:27 <Kitt> it is 50 to 60 degrees here, so we can go out in our yard
14:39:13 <CraigC> I feel more claustrophobic with it raining now, I would rather be out in the yard even if it is working
14:39:48 <Dave from B™> No, water proof rain jacket?
14:40:14 <Kitt> looks like flurries coming in
14:40:18 <CraigC> cant use my electric chainsaw when it is wet
14:40:27 <Kitt> hope we get to see bee today
14:40:30 <visitor52> Rain only melts witches in old movies. And Kevin may melt if he got rained on. Not implying he is a witch.
14:40:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can but not for lone.
14:40:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> long
14:40:41 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, LOL
14:41:05 <visitor52> You need a cordless one
14:41:37 <Dave from B™> 52, thanks....I was ready for a OZ reference...glad you beat me to it
14:41:44 <visitor52> I think they even sell them at the made in china store.
14:41:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Even those new cordless high voltage one can pack a bite.
14:41:45 <LindaG> Hmm I could have a slow shift
14:42:07 <Kitt> my cue to disappear, have a good day
14:42:19 <LindaG> Kitt, hi and bye
14:42:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Take care Kitt
14:43:37 <CraigC> I have a rechargeable chainsaw for when we go camping, it's not nearly as fast at cutting
14:44:05 <Dave from B™> I thought you chained sawed everything down last year. What is left?
14:44:24 <visitor52> The newest ones are supposed to be the cats meow.
14:44:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It grows back Dave unless it is something you want and then it dies.
14:44:55 <CraigC> Dave from B™, cutting up all the branches that I left on the ground, waiting to be able to haul stuff to our dump, and keep the pieces that are big enough to burn in our wood stove next winter
14:44:56 <visitor52> Course you need a cordless generator if you are out in the woods to recharge it.
14:45:27 <CraigC> visitor52, I charge it with an inverter
14:45:29 <visitor52> You need a cordless chipper.
14:45:42 <LindaG> What are you cutting down when you are camping?
14:46:01 <CraigC> LindaG, we cut up fallen trees
14:46:04 <Dave from B™> Alright, so, it will probably be at least another month or 2 or no socializing. What projects do people have planned?
14:46:04 <visitor52> Don't have to cut down, just up
14:46:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mailbox posts.
14:46:18 <CraigC> hahaha
14:46:24 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, lol
14:46:32 <Dave from B™> :d:d Kevin
14:46:42 <CraigC> my plan for the next months is biking myself back into shape
14:47:11 <CraigC> #1, trying not to die
14:47:22 <visitor52> Two months and no exercise? Good thing costco is sold out of ceese-its.
14:47:55 <LindaG> visitor52, oh our costco just got in the big boxes
14:48:14 <Dave from B™> My alcohol and chocolate consumption is currently threw the roof
14:48:23 <LindaG> But that was before the craziness
14:48:30 <visitor52> I am working on virtual lessons for 4-H kids.
14:48:36 <Dave from B™> I always have at least 2 big boxes at home; usually more
14:48:47 <visitor52> Horder
14:48:49 <CraigC> Dave from B™, dont buy pop tarts for cheap food supply.... just sayin
14:49:06 <Dave from B™> Can't stand pop tarts
14:49:29 <Jeff> i used to love pop tarts
14:49:33 <CraigC> Dave, are you actually an android?
14:49:40 <CraigC> hey Jeff
14:49:43 <visitor52> They were good back when they had more fruit then sugar and fillers.
14:49:46 <Jeff> hey craig
14:50:00 <LindaG> Jeff, hi, yeah I can remember liking pop tarts
14:50:05 <Jeff> hey linda
14:50:14 <Dave from B™> I have been accused of having no feelings; so maybe
14:50:31 <CraigC> I'm not even going to tell my mom that
14:50:35 <visitor52> You had feeling when the old truck broke down
14:50:49 <Betty> :-)
14:51:06 <Dave from B™> hahaha CraigC
14:52:06 <Dave from B™> I was 35 when my dad died. The biggest thing I remember is relatives almost getting mad at me for not crying in public
14:53:08 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I bet you were still in a fog..... when I went to my uncle's funeral last ,month, I commented to my mom and siblings how weird it was that I cried more there than at my dad's
14:53:49 <visitor52> 35? You were old.
14:54:30 <CraigC> I wish I were 35 old
14:54:38 <Jeff> i had my dads funeral and both of his parents funeral all in a 7 week span
14:54:41 <Dave from B™> me, too
14:54:51 <Dave from B™> ouch Jeff
14:55:06 <visitor52> I think I was an orphan buy that age.
14:55:09 <Jeff> that was 6 years ago now when i was 25
14:55:35 <CraigC> Jeff, I thought you were 22
14:55:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is tough.
14:55:49 <Jeff> nah i just turned 31 in december
14:55:58 <CraigC> just kidding
14:56:04 <visitor52> Seems like funerals go in 3's for some reason.
14:56:10 <CraigC> you young dudes all look like kids to me now
14:56:11 <Jeff> i wish i was still 22
14:56:39 <Dave from B™> Who else in here is young besides Jeff?
14:56:44 <LindaG> Jeff, me too 😊
14:57:10 <CraigC> Micah and Ryan
14:57:32 <visitor52> Jarno?
14:57:42 <CraigC> never seen Jarno
14:57:49 <visitor52> The question was here, otherwise cooper wins
14:58:06 <CraigC> havent seen cooper for a while
14:58:31 <Betty> me! under 50
14:58:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Jarno would qualify
14:58:40 <ynpvisitor55> where is Cooper??
14:58:42 <LindaG> I think cooper youngest, jarno may come next
14:58:51 <ynpvisitor55> Jarno is under 20
14:59:16 <CraigC> has jarno ever shared a photo of himself?
14:59:18 <LindaG> I think 18 or 19
14:59:36 <Betty> Jarno is 19 I think
14:59:44 <LindaG> I think cooper is busy with school
14:59:53 <ynpvisitor55> there is no school
14:59:57 <visitor52> Not sure, but he is in university isn't he?
15:00:06 <LindaG> ynpvisitor55, lol good point
15:00:08 <Betty> that´s why he´s busy
15:00:10 <Dave from B™> haha
15:00:23 <CraigC> don't awaken the kraken
15:00:23 <LindaG> Jarno is uniiversity
15:00:24 <ynpvisitor55> he used to spend every free second here
15:00:37 <Dave from B™> no, he is in high school or middle school. I think Coop is 14
15:00:42 <LindaG> Hopefully he is healthy
15:01:14 <visitor52> Jarno for university
15:01:34 <visitor52> Cooper may be still in School, google says not all colorado schools closed.
15:01:45 <visitor52> If it is correct
15:01:56 <Dave from B™> Yes, but university starts at younger age for Europeans, I believe
15:02:03 <CraigC> he knows more than the teachers anyways
15:02:10 <LindaG> He did mention he had been sick but thought it was a cold
15:02:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> School system in Europe is a bit different.
15:02:33 <visitor52> This is all because of a cold
15:03:00 <Jeff> im out of work for probably about a month due to this
15:03:25 <LindaG> 😥
15:03:26 <CraigC> Jeff, sorry, hope a stimulus check comes soon for you
15:03:51 <visitor52> I am surprised how many people are still working. Construction going on.
15:03:52 <Jeff> im just glad i was able to save up a decent chunk of change
15:03:52 <CraigC> I will feel guilty if I get one, because my pension is steady
15:04:22 <CraigC> but my 401k took a HUGE slam
15:04:41 <visitor52> It is up today, last I looked
15:04:53 <LindaG> CraigC, Oh my I looked at mine this morning, not good
15:04:54 <CraigC> yeah, good move today, but I doubt it continues
15:05:14 <LindaG> visitor52, up over 2000 pts
15:05:33 <CraigC> my small cap and reit shares got slaughtered the most..... my Amazon has retraced a lot
15:05:36 <LindaG> We lose big, gain little
15:06:02 <visitor52> It all came back after the last crash.
15:06:17 <CraigC> and it will on this, unless it doesnt
15:07:08 <visitor52> Kevin should feel guilty selling all the cheep property in Vegas this year.
15:07:18 <Dave from B™> It will. Revist it on Dec 31 and you will be surprised
15:07:33 <CraigC> "it does that"
15:07:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
15:07:51 <Dave from B™> :P
15:08:00 <CraigC> it was headed for correction before this pandemic
15:08:04 <Dave from B™> I side with Ryan on that comment regarding geysers
15:08:09 <LindaG> I'm not one to sell, but it took quite a while to recover from the crash
15:08:14 <Dave from B™> CraigC, yes it was
15:08:30 <CraigC> I side with levity ;)
15:08:34 <Dave from B™> I wish I would have moved things around in early Feb
15:08:48 <Jeff> assuming they dont start putting restrictions on travel i might take a couple weeks and go visit family since i havent seen any of them in years
15:08:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I just wish this #$@%$^^%$@@#$!^#$%#@ snow would quit!
15:09:04 <CraigC> I wish I had sold, but I have done worse overall trying to guess the market than just letting it ride
15:09:13 <visitor52> You need to get out the bug spray.
15:09:38 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:09:44 <CraigC> cya Dave
15:09:49 <LindaG> Dave from B™, night
15:09:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye Dave
15:09:53 <KevinS> Kevin L™ 🌵, Give the snow a virus and it will shut down
15:10:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good luck with you Mom.
15:10:13 <CraigC> yeah, what Kevin said
15:10:23 <Betty> bye Dave
15:10:27 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Kevin, CraigC.
15:10:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think the snow IS a virus.
15:10:44 <visitor52> It is not yours till you sell it anyway. It is all just paper. Now if you held toilet paper, tissues, or paper towels, you would be rich
15:10:47 <Dave from B™> GO STEAMBOAT
15:11:11 <LindaG> Theres a blip a while ago
15:11:56 <CraigC> visitor52, I was going to sell enough to buy a new truck this Spring.... missed the boat on that plan
15:12:09 <LindaG> visitor52, now that I could sell
15:12:42 <visitor52> If things do not turn around, they will be giving trucks away.
15:13:27 <CraigC> maybe so
15:13:48 <CraigC> I'll be watching, cuz I can still sell off some of my AMZN
15:13:49 <KevinS> Maybe not. They slashed production to control inventory
15:14:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Last sticker I saw on a truck mentioned a first born male child.
15:14:11 <KevinS> Ford and GM did
15:14:35 <visitor52> I read where Ford is making ventilators out of truck parts.
15:14:47 <visitor52> Not sure how that will work out.
15:15:12 <KevinS> GM should be too as payback for their last bailout+
15:15:18 <visitor52> The recall could be disastrous.
15:16:26 <visitor52> I remember them paying it all back
15:16:33 <CraigC> I believe GM paid back the bailout with interest, no?
15:16:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hopefully this will encourage US companies to manufacture here. Craftsman is already doing that.
15:17:36 <visitor52> Only if people are willing to pay their neighbors a wage.
15:18:00 <CraigC> bulger ie
15:19:16 <visitor52> I just put down some flooring, was surprised it was not made in china. Came from Germany.
15:19:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Frankly the American made is very competitive with Chinese products. One of the best N scale train companies makes their product in Oregon. Better price and quality than the chinese stuff.
15:19:48 <visitor52> Kaa dee
15:19:59 <visitor52> or how ever you spell it
15:20:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And Micro Trains.
15:20:06 <visitor52> In Medford as I recall
15:20:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Kadee. It is HO only. Micro trains is the N and Z scale part.
15:21:56 <The Big O> I'm working with only one monitor (unlike the dual setup in the office) so I don't always check. Guess I didn't miss Beehive.
15:22:01 <visitor52> It can be surprising what is still made in the USA if you look. And shocking what is made elsewhere when you look.
15:22:13 <visitor52> Not unless we missed it
15:22:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty
15:23:02 <LindaG> Wb betty
15:24:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> what, no eruption yet?
15:25:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We don't know.
15:25:02 <LindaG> Hi Eric and GO STEAMBOAT,
15:25:02 <Jeff> unfortunately not graham lol
15:25:26 <ynpvisitor55> be patient, Grand will happen soon
15:25:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> is it practicing social distancing?
15:25:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Eruption from the sky mostly
15:25:43 <Betty> thx Linda and Kevin. Hi Graham
15:25:48 <Jeff> nah thatd be giant and f&m graham
15:26:01 <Eric> Hi Linda and others
15:26:09 <Jeff> hey eric
15:26:11 <Eric> Here for my afternoon SB :-D
15:26:24 <ynpvisitor55> what is your plan now Jeff. Staying put at old job?
15:26:46 <Jeff> old job just shut down until further notice
15:27:02 <ynpvisitor55> so just staying put?
15:27:17 <LindaG> Jeff, oh my
15:27:20 <Jeff> i may try and take a week or 2 to visit family
15:27:39 <ynpvisitor55> spread those germs? Not sure that is wise
15:27:59 <Eric> Hi Jeff
15:28:19 <CraigC> hey Eric
15:28:30 <Eric> Some people don't have the luxury of staying put :-(
15:28:43 <ynpvisitor55> Eric, any more acceptances for your daughter?
15:28:50 <Jeff> i have to be out of my apartment by tuesday
15:29:07 <ynpvisitor55> oh, that is unfortunate
15:29:18 <ynpvisitor55> wish you the best
15:29:51 <Jeff> i tried talking to the office but they already had my apartment scheduled to be rented out 2 weeks after im gone
15:30:18 <Eric> That sucks Jeff :-(
15:30:49 <Eric> Good time to go home and be with family.
15:31:12 <CraigC> Eric, just wanted to let you know that hanging with you at Grand, and then Beehive was one of the great memory-makers last summer
15:31:28 <Jeff> my family is split between california, midwest, and east coast
15:32:40 <Jeff> but depending on how long the park is closed for i might not actually be able to see steamboat depending on what that wants to do
15:33:17 <CraigC> catching steamboat has always been a tough task
15:33:33 <Jeff> ive always had the worst timing with it
15:33:56 <CraigC> Jon L that works at Canyon was there so many evenings, still never saw it
15:34:08 <Jeff> i missed it by a couple hours last year cause i had to do laundry
15:34:52 <visitor52> You could have stayed, seen it, and washed your cloths.
15:35:10 <CraigC> LOL
15:35:28 <Jeff> i had to work the next day and there was no guarantee that it wouldve gone that night
15:36:21 <visitor52> I think Grand has ceased production till further notice.
15:36:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Agree 52
15:36:39 <visitor52> Layed off all the marmonts
15:37:49 <visitor52> Giantess may be activated for war time production. Some politician in ny said remember Rosie the Riveter?
15:38:21 <Eric> You too Craig! I really enjoyed my geyser friends on the BW...I have started Meditation and Yoga...amazing how much meditation is like Geyser Gazing...the acceptance of sitting and doing absolutely nothing :-P
15:38:37 <Eric> and being OK with that.
15:38:49 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
15:39:03 <Jeff> one good thing about meditation though is you dont have countless people asking questions lol
15:39:32 <Eric> With meditation...that is all tuned out...just like a well trained gazer :-D
15:39:43 <CraigC> exactly, people that really know me are so surprised that the impatient ADHD me was sitting at SB for 30+ hours several times
15:40:55 <CraigC> we learned how to make the questions into an opportunity for entertainment
15:41:36 <Jeff> it was always fun sitting on the lower platform with all the gazers, it was always good for a good laugh
15:44:43 <Eric> Some of those "moments" still bring a smile to my face...many of them revolve around TomC and his witty humor :-P
15:45:12 <CraigC> TomC is so quick with his retorts
15:45:59 <Jeff> i forget who said it last year but someone had said when they retire they want to scoop ice cream at lower hams, and i said hey i resent that lol
15:46:13 <CraigC> haha
15:46:29 <Jeff> eric i think you were there for that but im not sure if you were craig
15:48:20 <Betty> I was kicked out by my internet
15:48:36 <LindaG> Wb
15:49:23 <Eric> Dang internets!
15:50:03 <Eric> Yep Jeff....I remember that conversation, don't remember who it was who said it. Sounds like a KC comment :-P
15:50:29 <Jeff> that definitely got a good laugh out of everyone there lol
15:53:43 <Betty> no Aurum today...
15:54:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> cant we scoop ice cream into our own mouthes?
15:54:46 <Jeff> i used to "sample" all the ice cream flavors for "quality testing"
15:55:04 <LindaG> Yum
15:55:20 <LindaG> Stop those bugs kevin
15:55:50 <Jeff> plus tasting the ice cream helped me accurately describe the flavors to people and give an honest opinion on them
15:56:13 <Betty> I hope to come to lower hams for an ice cream Jeff :-)
15:56:32 <Jeff> if we actually get to open this year youll see me and william
15:57:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, nice way to make it a job function Jeff
15:57:11 <Betty> I´m convinced we will meet. Positive thoughts :-D
15:57:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> have to see if it changes day to day also
15:57:35 <Betty> Graham, you think we can meet this year too?
15:57:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released
15:58:27 <Jeff> with the park now closed the company has effectively stopped giving out revised start dates. they said they might be resuming by the end of the week or beginning of next week letting people know when to report
15:58:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope so, Sept is my favorite time to visit. I think my friends visit in June that I wanted to be there for is not going to hapen
15:59:26 <Betty> I´m there in October this year
15:59:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> but even if we are in the park we might not meet .. haha
15:59:38 <Betty> lol
15:59:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, then probably not
15:59:43 <LindaGp> got it
15:59:49 <Betty> ahhh, bummer
15:59:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> but thats a better tme to try and be there
16:00:09 <Jeff> hopefully youll be there at the beginning to mid october betty because lower hams is supposed to be closing mid october
16:00:34 <Betty> 10th-15th oct
16:00:46 <Jeff> yea then youll be there just before the store closes
16:00:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have 2 days in September reserved.
16:01:00 <Betty> woot! Nice
16:01:13 <Betty> great, Kevin
16:01:48 <Jeff> unless anything major happens lower hams will be closing at the close of business on the 11th
16:01:50 <LindaGp> I have a week in June 😝 not going to happen
16:02:08 <Betty> oh no!
16:02:28 <Eric> BH or SB first?
16:02:47 <LindaGp> OF
16:04:29 <The Big O> Does anyone look at the Maple Creek seismograph? It's very active/sensitive, and right now it's saturating. No idea why.
16:05:02 <LindaGp> Huh a short
16:05:02 <Jeff> well that was quick
16:05:23 <LindaGp> all gone
16:06:07 <Betty> was it a real eruption?
16:06:34 <KevinS> Several seismos are saturated right now
16:06:42 <Betty> maybe plowing, The Big O
16:09:44 <LindaGp> Betty, looked at getvideo look like actual eruption
16:10:01 <Betty> :-)
16:10:47 <LindaGp> Eric, getvideo is wonderful
16:11:27 <Betty> time for sleep, night all and take care
16:11:40 <LindaGp> Betty, night
16:17:15 <KevinS> Kevin L™ 🌵, Well I made a liar out of myself earlier. Looks like the wife sold all the pen blanks and hardware at our last yardsale. Sorry to tease
16:18:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No problem. I have a pretty good stock anyway.
16:19:10 <KevinS> Sorry. Kind of feel like I cried wolfe on this chat.
16:19:58 <LindaGp> Speaking of wolves...i wonder where that one went off to this morning
16:20:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do like to work with wood. My kid likes metal so we make a great combination.
16:21:25 <LindaGp> doesnt look like bee is doing anything tonight
16:21:38 <KevinS> I did find a few square blanks that have not been drilled either. But that is all that is left.
16:21:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If it was smart it went to Palm Springs.
16:22:56 <LindaGp> Nice out now
16:23:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep. Once I leave the cam....
16:23:35 <LindaGp> 🙄
16:24:15 <LindaGp> So those poor quail are being bumped off
16:24:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :(
16:24:30 <LindaGp> I hate qhennthe hawk takes my little birds
16:24:40 <LindaGp> *when
16:24:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just checked the traps. No Bob
16:25:24 <LindaGp> Nature is tough
16:25:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Finally have trains moving at the loop.
16:26:21 <LindaGp> Oh good, the weather equip was spinning away earlier
16:26:46 <LindaGp> Bee woke up a little
16:26:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Battery is only 62% though.
16:27:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bee keeps looking hot but I think it is going to wait until dark.
16:27:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Worlds champion blind geyser.
16:29:06 <LindaGp> 😊
16:38:50 <LindaGp> Some doggies out there
16:40:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And they don't bother chickens!
16:41:36 <LindaGp> There ya go, your next yard animal 😊
16:45:05 <LindaGp> Geez trying to catch something, anything
16:45:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Only thing I got was OF.

16:46:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And snow.
16:49:49 <LindaGp> aurum 25 hrs ago might go soon
16:50:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pumpkins coming to the loop.

16:53:48 <LindaGp> Nice. They are fun to watch. Dont now that i would want to listen to those whistles all day long though.
16:54:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 31,000 horsepower on that one.
16:57:03 <LindaGp> Looks like end of OF
16:57:33 <LindaGp> 14:57 on static
16:57:46 <LindaGp> 14:46 on static
16:57:59 <LindaGp> Yikes

17:02:03 <Eric> would be nice if that static cam updated a little more often :-(
17:02:59 <LindaGp> Yeah
17:04:38 <kcmule> did OF really have a 35m interval on 3/21 ?
17:05:50 <LindaGp> No idea
17:07:37 <LindaGp> Daisy
17:07:39 <LindaGp> ie

17:39:23 <LindaGp> Peeps
17:42:20 <ynpvisitor104> What happened with Grand?
17:42:29 <ynpvisitor104> Missed?
17:43:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> snow
17:46:19 <ynpvisitor104> must have been a quick storm. Too bad
17:46:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was off and on all day
17:47:22 <LindaGp> BSB
17:47:53 <LindaGp> bee woke up
17:54:18 <ynpvisitor116> hopefully BH before dark. BH logger down, of course.
17:54:45 <ynpvisitor116> seems to like to do that when theoretical windows are here
17:54:50 <LindaGp> BSB
17:55:08 <ynpvisitor116> that is close
17:55:16 <ynpvisitor116> yeah
17:55:26 <ynpvisitor116> if it is a separate eruption
17:58:46 <LindaGp> BSB stopped
17:59:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave broke it
17:59:20 <ynpvisitor116> no indy Bee coming up?
17:59:56 <Eric> what is that out near sponge?
18:00:00 <Eric> or pump

18:00:12 <LindaGp> Bison

18:00:18 <Eric> ohh
18:00:20 <Eric> :-D
18:00:22 <ynpvisitor116> oooh
18:00:25 <ynpvisitor116> I think so
18:00:29 <ynpvisitor116> let's go there
18:00:34 <Eric> Bison
18:00:35 <ynpvisitor116> good catch
18:00:35 <Eric> Thanks
18:00:43 <ynpvisitor116> there has been a griz hanging out
18:00:46 <Eric> Just saw big black spot :-P
18:00:56 <Eric> ohh cool
18:00:59 <LindaGp> Been there awhile
18:01:05 <Eric> ok
18:01:08 <ynpvisitor116> oopa
18:01:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If there is a griz it may turn into a big red spot.
18:01:19 <ynpvisitor116> Linda knew
18:01:24 <Eric> Meh, better checking it out than missing it.
18:01:39 <ynpvisitor116> yes, agreed
18:01:49 <Eric> Bears are coming out of we got a chance at seeing some.
18:01:54 <LindaGp> 😊 I checked it out before
18:02:04 <ynpvisitor116> there was one behind the cabins a few nights ago
18:02:19 <ynpvisitor116> someone posted about it that lives there
18:02:52 <ynpvisitor116> I am happy the cam is going to be up through the shutdown
18:03:04 <LindaGp> Bsb
18:03:07 <ynpvisitor116> it will get a lot of views since the park service is leading people there
18:03:13 <ynpvisitor116> or here
18:03:33 <ynpvisitor116> wow, they are close
18:04:17 <Eric> is wonderful sometimes.
18:04:39 <ynpvisitor116> we are so lucky to have it during this time
18:04:42 <Eric> Lion is spitting
18:04:55 <ynpvisitor116> there is the down side too, yet the benefits outweigh
18:05:03 <Eric> almost looked like LC behavior there for a moment
18:05:45 <Eric> oh for has a ton of drawbacks. But it's made a good percentage of our workforce be able to keep busy while still staying isolated.
18:06:29 <Eric> BH big splashes
18:06:34 <Eric> looks ready
18:06:51 <LindaGp> Yup
18:06:53 <ynpvisitor116> very
18:07:21 <LindaGp> bee
18:07:22 <ynpvisitor116> I 'm not sure we had this many BSBs this close before
18:07:25 <Eric> BH
18:07:27 <Eric> boom
18:07:28 <ynpvisitor116> I called it
18:07:31 <Eric> or not :-P
18:07:32 <ynpvisitor116> WEE
18:07:36 <Eric> ohh there it is
18:07:56 <Eric> no indy
18:07:58 <Eric> still
18:08:03 <ynpvisitor116> BSBs acted as indy
18:08:09 <LindaGp> Txt sent
18:08:18 <ynpvisitor116> so glad we are here
18:08:22 <Eric> Yep...interesting shift of power happening
18:08:41 <ynpvisitor116> have you seen BSBs that close together before Eric?
18:09:13 <Eric> I wasn't paying them a lot of attention...still got 2 hours of work left today and was supposed to be done 10 minutes ago :-P
18:09:16 <Kitt> glad I already had computer on chat
18:09:19 <LindaGp> They qere about 5 minutes apart
18:09:20 <Kitt> thanks for the text
18:09:24 <ynpvisitor116> i meant on GT
18:09:26 <Eric> what is that on the bike path?
18:09:30 <Eric> coyote?
18:09:48 <Eric> out of view now
18:09:49 <ynpvisitor116> we can't see the bike path
18:09:58 <Eric> not anymore :-P
18:10:10 <ynpvisitor116> I saw movement
18:10:13 <Eric> bottom third
18:10:18 <Eric> right on the edge
18:10:19 <ynpvisitor116> nice light on Bee
18:10:28 <Eric> at the left side of snow
18:10:30 <LindaGp> AL
18:10:33 <Eric> moving now
18:10:39 <Eric> coyote I think
18:10:41 <LindaGp> SEE IT
18:11:04 <LindaGp> looked like it
18:11:06 <ynpvisitor116> BH over a coyote any day
18:11:22 <Eric> I agree...just making sure it wasn't our wolf friend
18:11:36 <Kitt> I was worried Bee might go solo today after the short indy yesterday
18:11:46 <Eric> You were right
18:12:01 <ynpvisitor116> BSBs only 5 minutes apart
18:12:07 <Eric> not even steam from indy
18:12:09 <Kitt> bill laughed at me, my phone whistled and I jumped up and headed straight to the computer
18:12:31 <Eric> haha...I do that too Kitt. You know the timeframe and aren't expecting any other txt :-D
18:13:05 <Kitt> so bsb has continued to be active
18:13:15 <ynpvisitor116> somedays
18:13:31 <ynpvisitor116> I have not seen 3 that close together when I've been watching
18:13:31 <Kitt> Look at that, Beehive plus bison in the background
18:13:35 <LindaGp> That's nice OF in 5 min
18:13:45 <Eric> plus coyote in foreground before :-D
18:14:00 <Eric> Can we try to spot that animal...verify it was coyote?
18:14:14 <Kitt> thanks again for the text
18:14:17 <ynpvisitor116> I wonder how popular the web cam will become?
18:14:23 <LindaGp> Yw
18:14:31 <LoriS> Yes thx for txt
18:14:49 <Eric> Hotels shut down in West yet Lori?
18:14:55 <ynpvisitor31> Ditto. TY for text
18:14:57 <ynpvisitor116> Lori, did you move into a trailer?
18:15:11 <LindaGp> 👍
18:15:26 <Kitt> I was wading thru all of our junk mail that we received during our trip
18:15:27 <Lori S> Eric, some. All Del North hotels are
18:15:41 <ynpvisitor116> I bet it was a lot Kitt
18:16:01 <Eric> Didn't know if county or city was involved in shutting stuff down or not
18:16:16 <Lori S> ynpvisitor116, No. Unemployed (see ans to Eric)
18:16:45 <ynpvisitor116> I thought you worked for a VRBO
18:16:46 <Lori S> Saving the trailer downpayment for food right now
18:16:58 <ynpvisitor116> sorry, I thought you had to move
18:17:10 <Lori S> ynpvisitor116, No longer.
18:17:21 <ynpvisitor116> oh good, glad you have a place
18:17:26 <ynpvisitor116> have you heard from Cooper?
18:17:35 <ynpvisitor116> he has not been here in a while
18:17:56 <Eric> Thats true...strange considering he is probably not in school.
18:18:06 <Lori S> Yes, we moved but into Del North housing. Only thing avail early Feb when I had 3 weeks to move
18:18:10 <ynpvisitor116> and he used to live here even when he had school
18:18:20 <Kitt> back to sorting
18:18:24 <Eric> Hope he is doing ok :-(
18:18:27 <Kitt> stay safe and well
18:18:28 <ynpvisitor116> bye Kitt
18:18:33 <Eric> Good luck too!
18:18:42 <KevinS> bye Kitt
18:19:13 <ynpvisitor116> where does Delaware North have housing in West?
18:19:21 <Lori S> Bye Kitt. No, nothing from Korben since the ladt SB. Will send him an email
18:19:26 <ynpvisitor116> no one posted BH by the way
18:19:36 <ynpvisitor116> tell him we are thinking of him
18:19:38 <LindaGp> Oh i will
18:20:02 <Eric> Thanks Linda
18:20:05 <ynpvisitor116> hopefully that will make him happy
18:20:57 <LindaGp> Heh cooking dinner and driving cam
18:21:08 <Lori S> DN housing at Madison Apts on Elec. Ambassador on Gibbon, and the old Hideaway RV coming soon
18:22:13 <ynpvisitor116> hope you are in Madison
18:22:15 <Lori S> Gonna walk doggo. Back in a bit.
18:22:29 <KevinS> Has there been any three plus BSB eruptions all 10 minutes or less apart not shortly followed by Beehive?
18:22:49 <ynpvisitor116> I'm not sure, I was going to look on GT later
18:22:56 <ynpvisitor116> I know ten minutes apart
18:23:16 <ynpvisitor116> or 5 to 8 minutes right before BH, yet 3 in a row?
18:25:19 <LindaGp> I wonder if Kevin saw Bh
18:25:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> yes
18:25:43 <KevinS> I am just wondering if three BSB's in a row 10 minutes or less apart should be a qualifier for Bee text? Or do we know of times that did not lead into a Bee eruption?
18:25:51 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh good
18:27:35 <LindaGp> KevinS, Ryan would be a good person to chat about that with
18:29:33 <LindaGp> KevinS, I think Ryan believes we should send texts about bsb
18:31:24 <KevinS> Like my opion maters, but if they always lead to an eruption, then why not. If there are any exceptions known, then I would not request text sent.
18:31:53 <KevinS> matters*
18:33:39 <LindaGp> I'm not sure if every series of BSB leads to no indy
18:34:15 <LindaGp> Not that it matters both could be txted
18:34:52 <KevinS> I agree on that. I believe indy has gone after a BSB series.
18:35:25 <LindaGp> I think so too
18:40:32 <LindaGp> So now, where is AN?
18:40:44 <LindaGp> An =SB
18:41:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 10 pumpkins headed uphill.
