05:22:26 <ynpvisitor72> Joe, you headin gin torday?
05:22:40 <ynpvisitor72> heading in ;)
05:23:07 <ynpvisitor21> tomorrow morning
05:23:29 <ynpvisitor72> :thumbsup:
05:24:04 <ynpvisitor72> ynpvisitor21, you gonna check Norris?
05:24:14 <ynpvisitor72> if Sb doesnt erupt today
05:24:25 <ynpvisitor21> yes
05:24:43 <ynpvisitor72> what is that steam? isnt that right of grotto?
05:25:53 <ynpvisitor21> not sure
05:26:01 <ynpvisitor72> scratch that....
05:26:07 <ynpvisitor72> looks like grotto
05:26:29 <ynpvisitor72> I usually dont have this tab on my larger curved screen
05:26:56 <ynpvisitor72> it kind of compresses the perspective, makes that look closer to grand
05:28:06 <CraigC> I've been reviewing the Hams test sample questions
05:29:59 <ynpvisitor21> I try but I see offset double letters, gives me a headache
05:30:16 <CraigC> when is your next appt?
05:30:31 <ynpvisitor21> June 9
05:30:46 <CraigC> I hope they can do something to help
05:31:03 <ynpvisitor21> me too, thanks :)
05:31:20 <CraigC> have you tried a patch over your eye?
05:31:50 <ynpvisitor21> yes it helps some
05:32:19 <CraigC> I would get a parrot, bottle of rum, call it good
05:34:09 <ynpvisitor21> I have a pair of 1.25 reading glasses with a black lense and they help, although Parrot or Capt. M does sound good
05:35:10 <ynpvisitor21> I have set sail with the Capt. many times :)
05:37:02 <CraigC> ;)
05:43:02 <CraigC> launch countdown 8:49
05:43:21 <CraigC> 8 hours 49 mins
05:43:49 <CraigC> live feed
05:44:05 <ynpvisitor21> Nice, I hope all goes well.
05:44:49 <CraigC> :daisy:
05:45:08 <ynpvisitor21> been waiting for the flower
05:46:01 <KorbenC> Morning Joe, how is it going?
05:55:31 <Ryan> I will be at the dentist for the launch
05:55:59 <KorbenC> Hi Ryan
06:00:40 <KorbenC> Ryan, have you finished your sketches yet?
06:00:56 <Ryan> Havent had the chance.
06:07:36 <CraigC> rside
06:07:42 <ynpvisitor21> R-side
06:07:51 <CraigC> bulger ie
06:08:06 <Ryan> our side
06:08:16 <Ryan> are side
06:08:40 <CraigC> auurghhhside
06:11:04 <CraigC> hey Art
06:11:08 <CraigC> hey Jarno
06:11:09 <JarnoO> Ryan, have you read too much about communism? :)
06:11:13 <JarnoO> morning all
06:11:44 <Art> Happy first (observed) SB day
06:12:04 <Ryan> No, Comrade JArnoO
06:12:11 <JarnoO> :D
06:12:39 <JarnoO> is that a steamnado?
06:12:58 <JarnoO> yay! steamnado
06:13:22 <Ryan> I like the idea of May 27th being Steamboat Day
06:14:23 <ynpvisitor21> I like the 28th better
06:15:29 <Ryan> The steam tornado is cool! And I am partial to June 4... :)
06:15:35 <Art> Two years ago I wa ssleeping in my rental car like a hobo. best trip ever..
06:15:43 <Ryan> It could be whichever day #100 is....
06:16:08 <Ryan> Was June 2018 two years ago already?
06:17:45 <ynpvisitor21> Art, that was whean you got the steamboat signature paint job on your rental ?? :)
06:17:56 <ynpvisitor21> when*
06:18:50 <Art> The first eruption didn't do anything to the rental, it had been raining that afternoon and everything was still wet
06:19:17 <Art> I was like, well I guess it doesn't wreck your car after all
06:19:29 <JarnoO> the more correct term is actually steam devil, not steam tornado
06:19:52 <Ryan> June 4 wipe your car out like it did Tara's?
06:19:59 <Art> BIG time
06:20:10 <Art> I went to home depot twice in Bozeman
06:20:18 <Art> Like well maybe will fix it
06:20:23 <Ryan> Haha, poor Tara was trying to clean the important parts of her window with a hoodie and water bottle.
06:20:38 <Art> Vinegar, CLR, RV black tank cleaner
06:21:10 <Ryan> A friend of mine saw Steamboat on Aug 4, 2018 and it totally wiped out his brand new black truck. The windsheild had to be replaced in Bozeman because he couldn't see to drive back to Georgia.
06:21:19 <Art> I totally expected the rental car company to bill me, it was soooo bad
06:21:44 <CraigC> here is what I used;
06:21:47 <Ryan> When he got home the rest of the windows got replaced and a shop got the crud off the truck - except for the roof and hood. He asked the roof and hood stay sintered haha.
06:23:46 <JarnoO> Lion ini
06:23:48 <CraigC> lion trying
06:23:52 <Ryan> LKion
06:24:02 <Art> Morning Glory coffee came yesterday... mmm...
06:24:17 <CraigC> not sure where I would park my new truck if I go up, it is black
06:24:23 <Ryan> I gotta order more, Art. I am currently dipping into Folgers Dark Roast - ick
06:24:36 <Art> Lion?
06:25:13 <Ryan> No, Art. That's the bubbler between Lion and the boardwalk. :)
06:25:18 <Art> Sorry weird start there
06:27:51 <JarnoO> LC ie
06:36:48 <ynpvisitor21> Received a COVID-19 auto insurance refund check, I'll help the local economy, our restaurants have opened, I have dinner out tonight!!
06:37:07 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:39:40 <JarnoO> For your enjoyment, the steam devil @ 0612:
06:40:06 <ynpvisitor21> Where is New Jersey?? She usually has the cam by now :)
06:41:05 <KorbenC> Morning Everyone.
06:41:18 <KorbenC> Jarno, did you see the new Advisory on Invest 91L?
06:42:19 <JarnoO> 10% 2 day, 70% 5 day?
06:42:19 <CraigC> ynpvisitor21, if you need a break, let me know..... I'm taking a rest from the study
06:42:31 <KorbenC> Bertha, the Tropical Storm :)
06:42:36 <KorbenC> In the Atlantic
06:42:40 <CraigC> hey Dave
06:42:54 <KorbenC> Good morning Dave
06:43:08 <JarnoO> huh. A few hours ago it was 30% 30%
06:43:15 <JarnoO> that's fast for it to organise
06:43:16 <ynpvisitor21> thanks CraigC, I'm good
06:43:34 <KorbenC> yes it was :) Upper Winds stopped, and it just exploded
06:43:42 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC and all other approved gazers
06:44:52 <KorbenC> anyone have a live feed for the SpaceX launch?
06:44:59 <JarnoO> Korben, I think you'll like the steam devil I posted @ 0639. A tornado, but 100% different :)
06:45:00 <CraigC> Dave from B™, observer reported Sb had a near start
06:45:11 <ynpvisitor21> Morning Dave from B™, from an unapproved and illegitimate gazer
06:45:13 <CraigC> KorbenC, scroll up, I posted it
06:45:17 <JarnoO> morning Linda
06:45:21 <KorbenC> CraigC, Hi, and Thanks
06:45:22 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
06:45:23 <KorbenC> Morning Linda
06:45:31 <LindaG> I can take the cam
06:45:38 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
06:45:47 <ynpvisitor21> it is yours
06:45:57 <CraigC> launch;
06:46:15 <Dave from B™>
06:46:16 <CraigC> 7 hours 46 mins
06:46:17 <KorbenC> oh wow, that is a good view the have steaming.
06:46:43 <Ryan> I will be busy getting a tooth filled thats been an open jagged hole for two months when it launches
06:46:53 <Dave from B™> Meeting at 0800 MT to decide if weather is okay to launch
06:47:08 <JarnoO> Dep
06:47:09 <Ryan> Depression
06:47:09 <Ryan> ns
06:47:10 <KorbenC> DEP
06:47:13 <LindaGp> Got it
06:47:14 <JarnoO> good one!
06:47:27 <Ryan> DEPRESSION
06:47:31 <Ryan> RIGHT NOW
06:47:33 <Ryan> DING
06:47:36 <Ryan> SEND A TEXT
06:47:58 <ynpvisitor40> weather is not good here on Spacecoast - I don't think they will be making decisions this early
06:48:22 <KorbenC> Dep looked like it was 0646 Exact
06:48:23 <LindaGp> dep
06:48:46 <LindaGp> KorbenC, ok, thx, enter?
06:48:47 <Dave from B™> 40 (Kat), A meeting that early probably means a scrub of launch
06:48:54 <KorbenC> LindaGp, already did.
06:49:06 <Ryan> I wouldnt count any view of Depression an exact start
06:49:11 <LindaGp> KorbenC, 👍
06:49:21 <KorbenC> Ryan, it was pretty clear :)
06:49:39 <Ryan> Did you see the flood and flashing? :)
06:50:09 <KorbenC> I saw the push at about 0645:45, and then you could see the burst, and the flood :)
06:50:50 <Ryan> mmmmk. You had me up until you doubled down with a second based time stamp. :p
06:50:52 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I like your feed, I am listening to it in the background
06:51:21 <KorbenC> Ryan, :D ;)
06:51:28 <ynpvisitor40> Dave from B™, might be, unless it really clears - it is overcast and has been raining.
06:52:12 <KorbenC> Tropical Storm Warning Issued for SC Coast (might impact their launch if that is the tilt axis they want to launch on)
06:52:22 <Ryan> Looks like they have a 60% favorable rating for launch, their concern is flying through rain.
06:52:35 <KorbenC> Morning Kat
06:52:39 <Kat> Sorry - didn't change to me name! :)
06:52:52 <CraigC> hey Kat
06:53:00 <LindaGp> Kat, hi
06:53:26 <Kat> Hi all!
06:53:48 <Ryan> KC they should be well above and clear of any tropical storm by SC.
06:54:12 <CraigC> listening to the feed, reminds me of Ed Begley Jr
06:54:47 <LindaGp> I don't see water
06:54:59 <Ryan> Though SC is too far north. The ISS is in an orbit with an inclination of roughly 52 degrees
06:55:08 <Kat> I thought I did at the beginning
06:55:34 <LindaGp> Kat, ok I know its inn a series
06:56:11 <KorbenC> Ryan, Still, upper level troughs which is what Bertha is has an upper level wind altitude of about 45K which is what is feeding its roation
06:56:15 <LindaGp> LC ie
06:56:39 <Kat> Then again there's a lot of steam going on
06:56:52 <LindaGp> Kat, 😀
06:56:55 <Ryan> They will barely be off the coast by the time they hit 45kft
06:57:20 <LindaGp> Kat, doesn't seem strong enough
06:57:50 <Ryan> If there are effects from BErtha it will affect them regardless of which launch heading they would use.
06:58:25 <KorbenC> But the vent rate is 106, which coupled with and ADI of 22, means it will be getting fed by an upper atmospheric wave at 96ish K Ft.
06:58:47 <KorbenC> But, IDK, I would have to look at their trajectory to determine if the "plate" would have any effect.
06:59:12 <Kat> LindaGp, deleted to be on safe side
06:59:14 <CraigC> mc
06:59:20 <Ryan> *If there are effects from BErtha it will affect them regardless of which launch heading they would use.* Launch trajectories are basically vertical (relatively speaking) for the first couple hundred thousand feet
06:59:26 <LindaGp> Kat, ok
06:59:41 <KorbenC> Ryan, OK, I believe you :)
07:00:08 <Ryan> They like to get well up and out of the heavy air before really starting to head sideways. Less problems to deal with.
07:00:54 <KorbenC> I guess that makes sense, dont want to use Extra fuel and have extra danger trying to turn a ship in very problematic air
07:01:42 <Ryan> It's more a problem of dynamic air pressure.
07:01:54 <KorbenC> yes.
07:02:24 <Ryan> The longer you stay in the lower altitudes the faster you'll be moving. It's not so much a problem of wind shears or anything, its just to reduce loading and heating on the vehicles.
07:02:44 <KorbenC> I am sure that if you are in heavy air youre going to have more pressure on one side, which means more compression, which means more heat
07:03:55 <KorbenC> I think the main source of heating is friction between Air and the Rocket, and hte "heavier" the air, the more friction
07:04:21 <Ryan(meeting)> Nope, its compression heating from the bow shocks made during supersonic flight.
07:04:30 <Ryan(meeting)> Friction is negligible at those speeds.
07:07:20 <LindaGp> I can see clearly now...
07:08:25 <ynpvisitor21> song stuck in head
07:08:56 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor21, 😊 my job is done lol
07:09:16 <Dave from B™> The rain is gone
07:09:31 <ynpvisitor21> :p
07:09:59 <Kat> :lol:
07:10:06 <LindaGp> I can see all obstacles in my way....
07:10:12 <CraigC> what about the lion that sleeps?
07:10:38 <KorbenC> Craig, That is stuck in my head now :)
07:10:45 <CraigC> what is
07:10:53 <LindaGp> I hear snoring
07:11:11 <JarnoO> Speaking of, next Lion @ 0750±5m if series continues. 6m28s
07:11:34 <LindaGp> JarnoO, 👍
07:11:39 <KorbenC> JarnoO, thanks
07:12:37 <Dave from B™> honest. CraigC, is this what's stuck in KC's head?
07:12:43 <Dave from B™>
07:12:48 <LindaGp> I'm out of alarms on my phone
07:12:56 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, hhahahahahahahhaha
07:13:08 <CraigC> LMAO
07:13:41 <LindaGp> Bulger ie
07:13:41 <KorbenC> ROFL
07:24:17 <Ryan> Finishing thought train: there is compression formed on the leading edges from the bow shock formed at super sonic velocities. As Mach increases the bow shocks move backward.
07:24:43 <KorbenC> Ryan, :thumbsup:
07:24:51 <KorbenC> I read a PDF on it
07:24:57 <LindaGp> LC ie
07:25:14 <KorbenC> LindaGp, ns
07:25:20 <KorbenC> was not ie when we panned back :)
07:25:54 <KorbenC> LindaGp, have you seen any neat birds recently?
07:26:05 <Ryan> There is also a brief, but intense, spike in drag and pressure while the vehicle goes transsonic and super sonic. Again, the idea is that you would like to be up pretty high when that happens.
07:26:56 <Ryan> The shuttle would just kind of muscle its way through :) and they were also known to fly through some impressive wind shears (enough to bend and flex the airframe while crossing the slipstremas)
07:27:21 <Ryan> Less air = less problems --> Get up before getting out :D
07:29:54 <KorbenC> Ryan, thx for the explenation
07:30:30 <Ryan> The thought train rolls on: Concorde flew at Mach 2.1 (roughly) and could only do that at very high altitudes and with white reflective paint. At one point Pepsi had a promotional deal and they painted a couple Concordes blue and they had to pull the cruise speed back to Mach 1.75. During normal flights at M2.1 the airframe stretched and expanded by over a foot - there was an expansion gap
07:31:42 <Ryan> in the flight deck between the flight engineer and the captain/first officers. Flight crews who retired Concordes and flew their last flight would take their hats and put them in the expansion joint, when the plane landed and cooled the hats would be wedged in the contracting gap and they can't be removed without either disassembling the plane or flying it again.
07:32:55 <Ryan> That is one of my favorite trivia facts with supersonic flight - and something that I thought would be interesting to share on the day we send Americans to the ISS with an American launch vehicle (ya know, a storey involving an entirely European plane, achieving something we couldn't :D )
07:33:12 <CraigC> I don't have any into to share about the Concorde, but I saw it fly. :)
07:34:18 <Ryan> I would spend an entire vacation's worth of money just to fly on Concorde. :(
07:34:44 <Ryan> Legit, my vacation would be one day long just to round trip from JFK to Heathrow and back.
07:36:04 <Ryan> It was the only commercial aviation plane to fly backwards ;)
07:36:57 <Dave from B™> Not me; I'd rather ride on a blimp
07:37:13 <CraigC> ;)
07:37:18 <CraigC> wait, did you mean me?
07:37:31 <Dave from B™> haha No, not you
07:37:40 <CraigC> whateva
07:37:43 <Ryan> They both ended in fiery explosions, Dave.
07:38:06 <Dave from B™> Craig, too?
07:38:14 <CraigC> hahaha
07:38:20 <Ryan> Give him time.
07:41:16 <CraigC> delat up 5% at open
07:41:20 <CraigC> Delta
07:41:46 <CraigC> people hoping covid is over
07:42:04 <Ryan> Think they will give me a break on my January flights?
07:42:39 <CraigC> up 6%
07:43:30 <LindaGp> Thought of being on plane makes me nervous
07:43:30 <Dave from B™> We are booking a LV trip for October today with full cancellation
07:43:47 <Dave from B™> It is Becca's trip since she is now 21
07:44:04 <Dave from B™> Planes are empty right now
07:44:52 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, that's my stumbling block to get out west
07:45:00 <LindaGp> OF
07:45:00 <CraigC> I'll be pleasantly surprised if we don't have another significant pull back on openings in the next 2 months
07:45:13 <LindaGp> Nice
07:47:27 <Dave from B™> Craig, how is the boat search going?
07:47:28 <LindaGp> Might just see daisy will be close
07:48:12 <CraigC> Dave from B™, suspended.... I sold some shares last week during a good surge, but when AMZN pulled back, I put that money back in
07:48:37 <Dave from B™> We should see Daisy...I'm predicting 0652-0659
07:48:50 <KorbenC> LION
07:48:51 <CraigC> today it is down over 2% ahead of a meeting with shareholders about the increased scrutiny
07:48:51 <Dave from B™> Nice
07:48:51 <LindaGp> Lion ie
07:49:10 <LindaGp> hoping for daisy
07:51:18 <CraigC> osprey?
07:51:33 <LindaGp> Missed it
07:51:43 <LindaGp> Daisy
07:52:04 <Dave from B™> I love watching osprey
07:52:24 <CraigC> 75101
07:52:35 <Dave from B™> nice prediction on Daisy...forgot to add an extra hour to my prediction
07:52:50 <LindaGp> Whoohoo worked out
07:53:44 <Dave from B™> Looks like an osprey
07:54:05 <CraigC> looked like it had a fish
08:03:11 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, thx
08:16:35 <LindaGp> splash for aurum
08:18:07 <LindaGp> More
08:19:24 <LindaGp> LC ie
08:20:59 <KorbenC> that was the most pointess 15 minutes I ever spent, looking emptilt into a refrigorator, and not knowing what I want to eat :)
08:21:15 <KorbenC> any I see my spelling has not improved
08:22:09 <LindaGp> If you ate do you think spelling would improve?
08:23:15 <KorbenC> nope, nothing works
08:23:39 <LindaGp> 😃 same here
08:24:06 <KorbenC> :lol:
08:24:37 <LindaGp> Well it's more typing, I'm a good speller
08:24:52 <KorbenC> werent you an lit major?
08:25:01 <Ryan> Gonna set the bar here for pedantic-ism: Concorde does not use an article like "a" or "the". It is just Concorde. :)
08:25:13 <LindaGp> Yes, always a good speller
08:27:21 <ynpvisitor112> You spent 15 minutes staring in the fridge? May you have 12 kids just like you, and a well paying job to cover the cost of them holding the fridge door open all day.
08:28:57 <Dave from B™> Yes, and you let all the penguins out, too!
08:29:08 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, haha
08:29:25 <LindaGp> 🤣
08:29:30 <KorbenC> at least if I had 12 kids just like me I would not have to worry about them being idiots!
08:30:01 <LindaGp> Giantess is hot
08:30:59 <KorbenC> Hi Jimbo, you feeling Ionized today? :)
08:31:28 <Neon + 1> I am. I hit the number 10 yesterday, and 11 this morning.
08:32:17 <Neon + 1> Na-na-na-na hey hey
08:32:26 <KorbenC> Wonder what has happened at Giantess Recently
08:32:53 <Neon + 1> Because of the heat flow it always looks impressive with high humidity
08:33:19 <ynpvisitor54> [
08:34:33 <Ryan> Its also been warmer though. I'd expect there to be less steam than colder days haha
08:35:49 <LindaGp> What is steam to right?
08:37:31 <LindaGp> .
08:37:45 <KorbenC> LindaGp, IDK
08:38:01 <Dave from B™> Humidity is 100%
08:38:06 <LindaGp> 🙄
08:38:17 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, ok
08:38:50 <Dave from B™> Can't be Riverside
08:39:12 <LindaGp> agree
08:39:42 <LindaGp> and steam not drifting right
08:40:05 <KorbenC> could be from F&M maybe?
08:40:06 <CraigC> isnt there a pool that used to be an active feature
08:40:19 <Dave from B™> Purple Pools?
08:40:21 <CraigC> right before the boardwalk bends
08:40:32 <Dave from B™> not Purple pools
08:41:35 <Dave from B™> Wave Spring, Economic area, Craig?
08:42:03 <CraigC> I don't remember. There was a discussion about it a few years ago on FB
08:42:10 <Ryan> Your choices are Wave Spring, Economic Geysers, and the Purple Pools
08:42:39 <Ryan> Snd right now my bet would be Purple Pools
08:43:18 <Dave from B™> That's where I would lean as well
08:43:20 <Ryan> Though Fan and Mortar and Morning Glory is on that same LOS
08:43:35 <Ryan> The Purple Pools can kick up some steam, then are hot plue pools.
08:44:32 <ynpvisitor21> link is in there also
08:44:34 <Ryan> After that you have nothing until Cauliflower Geyser and Dusty Geyser
08:44:52 <Ryan> 21, Link should be behind Grotto
08:45:31 <Ryan> Also Pyramid Geyser is directly behind Castle.
08:46:40 <Ryan>
08:47:04 <Ryan> Enjoy the time we have left here. DJT is coming for us ;)
08:48:18 <CraigC> I have plenty to say about that story, but this isn't where I will say it ;)
08:48:28 <LindaGp> LC ie
08:48:51 <CraigC> trying to keep my strong opinions at home with my gf and daughter
08:50:52 <LindaGp> Yeah I'll have to refrain from that, but I might explode in the meantime
08:51:30 <ynpvisitor54> The Geyser Underground would emerge
08:52:08 <LindaGp> 😊
08:53:55 <LindaGp> It's a symbiotic relationship
08:55:32 <ynpvisitor112> What is a twitter, Is it like the people we made fun of in school?
08:55:36 <CraigC> we can use 4 syllable words in here???
08:56:06 <LindaGp> We can try
08:56:38 <LindaGp> Hehe if we can spell them
08:56:43 <Dave from B™> big words allowed in this room
08:56:58 <ynpvisitor112> Only if you include a contraction for the dull people.
08:57:03 <KorbenC> ha
08:57:12 <ynpvisitor36> You can use them, they don't even have to be spelled correctly.
08:57:23 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor36, 😊
08:57:24 <Dave from B™> That hurts, 112:)
08:57:47 <ynpvisitor112> pump
08:58:30 <ynpvisitor112> Dave, if you think you are dull, you spend too much time locked in your office. Need to go out and sell some fish.
08:58:44 <ynpvisitor112> Now lion looks happy
09:00:34 <LindaGp> maybe grand soon
09:02:39 <Ryan> I've been extremely impresed by the camera on the iPhone 11. I even ordered a polarizer and couple lens hoods. Its worth a real shot at using it for a semi-serious camera.
09:03:42 <ynpvisitor112> Till you drop it, leave it on top of your car, have it fall out in a cave, or flush it.
09:04:46 <Dave from B™> Is it just me or is getvideo clearer than our cam view?
09:04:46 <ynpvisitor36> Other than flushing, I think every camera in history has been vulnerable to those problems.
09:05:57 <ynpvisitor36> Idiot-proofing is the last frontier in technology...
09:06:50 <ynpvisitor112> The iphone 20 will be injected in you, no way to upgrade or loose it.
09:07:21 <CraigC> daughter just spent $300 to fix her phone from dog biting it
09:07:59 <LindaGp> Lion
09:08:02 <KorbenC> Meo
09:08:04 <KorbenC> w
09:08:09 <CraigC> I paid 80 for my used Galaxy6
09:08:34 <ynpvisitor112> I was going to say I could buy 3 new phones for less then 300
09:08:44 <CraigC> kids
09:08:54 <Dave from B™> smart phones are not cheap
09:09:17 <ynpvisitor112> They are not smart either.
09:09:19 <CraigC> she also spends 40 for a door dashed pizza
09:09:36 <LindaGp> No one there to see it
09:09:55 <CraigC> 2 pizzas pay for my smart phone
09:09:58 <ynpvisitor112> THen did it happen?
09:10:19 <LindaGp> 😊
09:11:29 <ynpvisitor112> Now would be a good time for google
09:11:50 <CraigC> I'm doing pretty well at walking away from political arguments, but I couldnt keep quiet on the story about the Fenn treasure seeker that had to be rescued. User comment; Dude seems like a cool guy.....Living the dream
09:12:20 <CraigC> me; 'Living' huh "ran out of rope before reaching the bottom of the canyon. Christensen then had to “scoot” down to the river and was unable to get back to his rope, requiring a rescue by 11 National Park Service personnel" was DYING his dream on his own
09:12:22 <LindaGp> OF time
09:12:48 <ynpvisitor112> I guess they did not believe him when he said they did not need to risk their life to find it.
09:13:08 <CraigC> ynpvisitor112, bingo
09:13:14 <CraigC> I also commented on that
09:13:35 <ynpvisitor36> If he does find it, maybe it will pay for the rescue?
09:13:42 <ynpvisitor112> Dang, they saw lion, so it must have happened.
09:14:02 <CraigC> he was fined $4k, and one week in jail. Waiting to get over his Covid before serving time
09:14:43 <LindaGp> Wouldn't want to be confined now
09:15:05 <LindaGp> Could be a death sentence
09:15:12 <CraigC> unless you were friends with someone...
09:15:26 <Katie> Wouldn't want to be confined every. Hepatitis is often present in lockup populations.
09:15:34 <LindaGp> S
09:15:38 <LindaGp> c
09:15:51 <LindaGp> 😊
09:15:59 <ynpvisitor112> I think adventure seekers should be treated like road kill. If they are not going to be a bother, leave them.
09:16:30 <CraigC> Katie, yep. I am so glad I retired before this pandemic.... I would be struggling with a lot of anxiety if I had to be back in a facility
09:17:09 <CraigC> I was working in a lock down unit
09:18:06 <ynpvisitor112> Not a job I would ever do, glad someone does it.
09:18:15 <LindaGp> Grand
09:18:38 <LindaGp> sorry but we have a timw
09:18:39 <ynpvisitor112> Have eyes in the back of the cammera?
09:18:46 <Katie> It's not the same, not by a long shot, but my sister works in a group home for youth with severe behavioral issues. Covid19 precuations have exacerbated all behaviors because the kids are shut in the house. I can't even imagine what prison populations are like, now.
09:18:54 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor112, it was due ☺
09:20:05 <CraigC> Katie, sometimes those group homes are harder. Many times they are understaffed and undertrained, and under paid
09:20:25 <LindaGp> I guess someone would have entered
09:21:13 <ynpvisitor112> Well, nothing to see here, enjoy more kitties.
09:21:15 <LindaGp> Have to get used to people being in basin
09:21:27 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor112, bye
09:21:34 <Katie> They are that. My sister's manager contracted covid. Their plan, established early on, was that if anyone in any of the houses (there are 10, I think) tested positive, all houses would lock down for 14 days - staff on premise would stay on premise.
09:21:48 <ynpvisitor36> bye, 112
09:22:43 <Katie> Stacy was off premise when it happened - and had been exposed to her manager. She was in 14 day isolation at home. But on premise staff had to remain there for 14 days - AND the kids had to remain in their individual bedrooms except for trips to bathroom, which were sorta scheduled for sanitizing in between.
09:22:51 <CraigC> yikes
09:23:31 <CraigC> I'd feel so claustrophobic from that
09:23:49 <Katie> She is working graveyard shift now. Kids SHOULD be in bed the entire time. But the big issue is many of them try to run away during "normal" times and now that, too, is exacerbated.
09:24:37 <Katie> One tried to barricade Stacy in the bathroom (tied a torn twisted t-shirt to the door handle) before the 14 day hard quarantine period.
09:24:39 <LindaGp> Need to reboot
09:25:21 <CraigC> not enough staff to prevent that?
09:26:24 <ynpvisitor102> OF
09:27:21 <ynpvisitor7> Heinrich and Suzanne must have gone back to Norris, since they didn't post Grand
09:27:35 <ynpvisitor102> Ycan someone enter grand OF having technical difficulties
09:27:45 <Katie> I'm not sure where the other staff members were at that moment. Didn't matter. Stacy just bull-dogged right through the barricade. Heard the girl before she even had her pants down. Had to put the girl in a hold as she tried to fight her way out. Then had other staff member sit with eyeballs on her while she went back to the bathroom to do the intended business.
09:28:17 <Katie> and then they took turns keeping eyeballs on her the remainder of the night, calling in an additional staff member since that girl was taking 1:1 attention.
09:28:18 <CraigC> ynpvisitor7, probably, yesterday she said they were going in the AM
09:28:50 <ynpvisitor7> how long are they in park?
09:29:00 <CraigC> I havent asked
09:29:17 <CraigC> Katie, so glad to have that stuff in my rear view mirror
09:29:27 <ynpvisitor36> Coffee break's over. Bbl
09:31:46 <Katie> It's really hard, now, because the incentives for good behavior are... well... "in the time before," they earned privileges. Trips to parks, trips to the movie theater, if the whole house was on privilege, road trips... None of that is happening now. It's like being on constant restrictions. Why behave?
09:32:07 <CraigC> yeah
09:32:22 <CraigC> that's tough
09:33:00 <CraigC> I owuld still take the some out on drives if they all stayed together
09:33:32 <CraigC> getting out of the building always made an impact
09:35:01 <JarnoO> by the way, it seems Dome's series ended somewhere overnight. Haven't seen convincing steam on static today
09:36:38 <LindaGp1> Wow my thermometer says it's 80 degrees outside
09:37:31 <LindaGp1> JarnoO, steaming but no water
09:37:37 <Katie> They are going for walks again now. At least some fresh air and a change of scenery. Stacy suggested day staff to take them on a walking "bear hunt" (the bears in windows thing). She would do those things if she was on days now. I'm sure others are doing so. Staff doesn't like being in the house all day every day, either.
09:47:06 <Dave from B™> I have the upmost respect for people who work in challenging career such as Craig's and Katie's sister. It is definitely not for me.
09:48:02 <LindaGp1> hi Jake
09:48:17 <LindaGp1> Daisy in about min, hopefully
09:48:22 <KorbenC> Hi Jake
09:48:42 <JarnoO> morning Jake
09:49:50 <LindaGp1> Lol 5 min
09:50:55 <Jake> morning all
09:52:10 <Dave from B™> 958
09:52:24 <KorbenC> 957:59 :)
09:53:21 <LindaGp1> Daisy
09:53:24 <JarnoO> Daisy
09:54:52 <LindaGp1> My GT app needs reinstalling
09:55:12 <LindaGp1> Uh oh neon is looping
09:55:17 <KorbenC> Thats not good
09:55:22 <Jake> Neon's gone supernvoa
09:55:26 <KorbenC> Jimbo, /quit
09:55:31 <LindaGp1> Haha
09:55:37 <KorbenC> Hhaha Jake
09:55:41 <LindaGp1> it's that +1
09:55:43 <Jake> my GT app kicked the bucket a few months ago
09:55:56 <Jake> I need to reinstall
09:56:00 <Dave from B™> Daisy
09:56:04 <KorbenC> That is a lot of Recations that Neon is having :)
09:56:07 <Dave from B™> ie
09:56:09 <Art>
09:56:09 <LindaGp1> Jake, if i uninstall and then install it seems to work again
09:56:28 <JarnoO> ehm... wat?
09:56:45 <JarnoO> Jimbo... what are you doing there?
09:56:49 <KorbenC> He is looping on 2 second itnervals :)
09:56:54 <KorbenC> Very Oreductabke
09:57:02 <KorbenC> Predictable*
09:57:14 <Neon + 1> got em
09:57:16 <LindaGp1> KorbenC, lol that was a good one
09:57:25 <KorbenC> Linda, :D
09:58:04 <KorbenC> What were you doing there Jimbo??
09:58:07 <Art> OK take 2... Did anyone see this article yet, stats for visitation were not off by much from S and E gate?
09:58:09 <Art>
09:58:11 <LindaGp1> Never got aurum
09:58:15 <Dave from B™> Art, that memorial Day graphic is so misleading. You need to figure park visitation total; not just the 2 open enrtracnes
09:58:20 <LindaGp1> hopefully Kevin will
09:58:41 <Dave from B™> Down 100% at other 3 entrances makes numbers look totally differeent
09:58:59 <Art> Yup wasn't stating that
09:59:11 <Art> Just interesting that those two gates had minimal net change
09:59:50 <LindaGp1> And here is Kevin to save the day!
09:59:54 <Dave from B™> Sorry...didn't mean for that to be directed at you. NPS could have done a better job stating visitation
09:59:56 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
09:59:58 <Neon + 1> yeah and how many MT-side locals would "drive all the way around" to get in?
10:00:27 <Dave from B™> We can't with 14 day quarantine
10:00:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Opening Vegas back up now Dave.
10:00:55 <Neon + 1> what does "can't" mean?
10:01:09 <LindaGp1> Controls released
10:01:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Guess it is time for me to drive.
10:01:33 <LindaGp1> Kevin L™ 🌵, I saved aurum for you
10:01:45 <Dave from B™> It is against rules set by Montaan governor
10:01:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks.
10:02:01 <Dave from B™> We can't cross the border
10:02:03 <ynpvisitor1> Bbl
10:02:21 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin. Chase finally won a race
10:02:40 <Neon + 1> huh, to go to Wyoming? how is that being enforced?
10:02:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BIG payday too.
10:03:13 <Dave from B™> Not really being enforced but that doesn't mean we should ignore it
10:03:47 <Dave from B™> Awaiting Governor's conference sometime this week to discuuss June 1 changes
10:05:15 <Dave from B™> Also, 57% of MT realtors have seen an increase in out of state interest in houses especially Californians
10:05:27 <Neon + 1> I agree but I don't see that as a deterrent for, say, half the population. Now how many of that half REALLY wanted to go to Yellowstone this weekend? prob not many
10:05:28 <KorbenC> .
10:05:28 <KorbenC> .
10:05:28 <KorbenC> .
10:05:29 <KorbenC> AURUM
10:05:30 <JarnoO> Aurum
10:05:31 <JarnoO> .
10:05:31 <JarnoO> .
10:05:32 <JarnoO> .
10:05:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks Linda!
10:06:01 <JarnoO> that's a good one
10:06:14 <Neon + 1> 57% of realtors or 57% increase in interest?
10:06:22 <KorbenC> still going
10:06:34 <KorbenC> done
10:07:35 <Dave from B™> 57% of realtors saw an increase in interest
10:08:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They should put a tax on that Dave.
10:09:30 <Dave from B™> WE are seeing tremendous growth in our neighborhood...2 recent move ins are from Chicago and Michigan
10:09:32 <Ryan> oooooh
10:10:34 <ynpvisitor104> Put a tax on daves?
10:10:41 <ynpvisitor104> Dave Tax!
10:11:04 <ynpvisitor104> Think of how many Daves there are...we could reduce our national debt.
10:11:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Tax on californians moving into your state.
10:11:19 <Dave from B™> First Bob's were picked on; now Dave's?
10:11:20 <KorbenC> 104, lol.
10:11:29 <ynpvisitor104> :-D
10:11:30 <KorbenC> 104, so just change oyur name to something thats not Dave
10:11:46 <ynpvisitor104> Kick Bobs, Tax Daves
10:11:59 <ynpvisitor104> The bots are doing it...not me.
10:12:22 <Neon + 1> us Michiganders are everywhere
10:12:42 <Dave from B™> Jimbo, where are you originally from?
10:12:47 <ynpvisitor104> Oregon tried to reduce California didn't work!
10:12:52 <Neon + 1> we don't get the crap that Californians do because we show up with 1/5 of the cash to buy a house
10:12:57 <Neon + 1> this is Jake, not Jimbo
10:13:08 <Neon + 1> I took his name to stop it from spamming the chat room
10:13:23 <Dave from B™> That has to be a copyright infringement, Jake!
10:13:39 <Dave from B™> haha
10:13:48 <ynpvisitor104> What is going on?
10:13:59 <Dave from B™> Probable Eric at it again
10:14:10 <Dave from B™> Yeah...there ya go!!
10:14:13 <Neon + 1> something about Neon + 1
10:14:20 <Neon + 1> makes page go crazy
10:14:34 <Eric> That is really strange
10:14:51 <Eric> switch back and I will kick that username Jake
10:15:11 <Jake> kick me too if needed
10:15:38 <Jake> do i exist?
10:15:45 <Eric> That worked

10:22:39 <CraigC> I'm got a live youtube on
10:23:39 <Neon + 1> are you launching your social media identity?
10:23:45 <CraigC> 50/50 probability for launch
10:24:01 <Neon + 1> oh you're watching the live stream
10:24:20 <Neon + 1> you should make yourself live of you watching the live broadcast!
10:24:27 <CraigC> LOL
10:24:35 <CraigC> I would have to get dressed, right?
10:24:54 <CraigC> OT
10:25:03 <CraigC> c'mon bulgers hole
10:26:20 <CraigC> I'd laugh if they had a breakdown of the ride to the rocket in the Tesla car
10:26:57 <Neon + 1> just enough clothing to pass YT terms of service
10:27:15 <CraigC> a shirt
10:27:57 <CraigC> MC

10:32:22 <Ryan> Probably afraid of being mocked ;)
10:32:46 <CraigC> when did that ever stop cooper?
10:33:47 <Dave from B™> Craig, i'm ruined with mental pictures of your current stae of dress
10:34:04 <CraigC> Dave from B™, ;)
10:34:20 <CraigC> alright, I will change out of the halter top
10:34:45 <Ryan> No no
10:34:52 <Ryan> please... just cover it.
10:34:54 <Dave from B™> Darn ,you beat me to it....I liked your pink ribbon in your wig
10:34:58 <Ryan> No need to take it off first.
10:35:22 <CraigC> does the muumuu bother anyone?
10:35:52 <CraigC> I long to be an online influencer
10:36:43 <CraigC> walkout in 45 mins
10:36:50 <CraigC> dark clouds
10:39:55 <CraigC> Dave from B™, speaking of Boas and Muumuus, we gave your Mrs Maisel show another shot last night
10:43:00 <Dave from B™> And, we're you able to get into it?
10:43:00 <KorbenC> any news on if they are gonna try to launch today for SpaceX?
10:43:35 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yes, we are liking it more than our first attempt
10:43:43 <Dave from B™> Astros now have their suits on
10:43:47 <CraigC> KorbenC, last was 50/50
10:43:58 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, where are you seeing that>
10:44:09 <Dave from B™> It takes awhile to get into it but we usually watch the whole season in the first few days it comes out.
10:44:27 <Dave from B™>
10:44:42 <Dave from B™> In the recent notes
10:47:52 <ynpvisitor12> any body posting Bulger from 10
10:48:09 <KorbenC> what time was it?
10:48:14 <ynpvisitor12> 10:20
10:48:15 <CraigC> cooper can post the bulger and OT that I posted
10:48:29 <KorbenC> Both Bulger and OT at 10:20?
10:48:48 <ynpvisitor12> Was there a Rocket at 10:16?
10:48:56 <CraigC> 10:24:54 ‹CraigC› OT

10:53:23 <Eric> Just read through chat...way to make Dave flustered with your nakedness Craig :-P
10:53:30 <KorbenC> Dave is Dave :)
10:53:32 <CraigC> ;)
10:54:02 <Ryan> I asked an no one responded :)
10:54:07 <Neon + 1> Looks like its bug season
10:54:08 <Dave from B™> hahaha Eric
10:54:21 <CraigC> Eric, do you know Forest G.?
10:54:22 <Neon + 1> Didn't that post?
10:54:33 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
10:55:00 <Eric> Nope...but I thought he was dead yesterday, now I know he is not.
10:55:00 <Ryan> Thought his name had two rs? (I know who you mean, I am legit asking)
10:55:07 <CraigC> Eric, he msg'd me saying he was having troubles opening links in GT, can I send him to you?
10:55:18 <CraigC> Forest Garty
10:55:31 <Eric> ohh, that name sounds familiar
10:55:42 <CraigC> 1 R
10:55:48 <Eric> Send him to Jake :-D
10:56:05 <Eric> I think he is a young gazer if I remember correctly.
10:56:09 <CraigC> yes
10:56:30 <KorbenC> Young, as in younger than me, or young as in 20?
10:56:40 <CraigC> on the far right here;
10:57:18 <Neon + 1> I am a Young gazer
10:57:18 <Eric> I believe I have met him in the basin too
10:57:29 <Eric> You are an old man now Jake :-P
10:57:32 <ynpvisitor54> Jake, :thumbsup:
10:57:39 <CraigC> he was hanging with Craig M and Luke last year
10:57:52 <Ryan> "10:57:18 ‹Jake› I am a Young gazer" BOO
10:57:59 <Eric> Luke :-D I gave him my headlamp :-P
10:58:08 <Eric> I hope he keeps gazing
10:58:18 <CraigC> Luke and his dad were funny people
10:58:27 <Eric> Never met his dad
10:58:37 <CraigC> they are so much the same
10:58:42 <Eric> haha
10:59:06 <Eric> Not surprised those 3 were hanging out
10:59:44 <CraigC> Forest's mom and my g/f hung out while the kids explained all their observations on the churn area
11:00:16 <Eric> Luke loves that area...I spent a few evenings out there with him.
11:00:26 <Eric> OF
11:00:37 <Ryan> I loved it too when it was alive
11:00:45 <CraigC> I got dizzy watching them scoot back and forth to all those features
11:00:56 <Eric> He did some great comparitive shots of Bulger's hole as it was changing
11:00:56 <Ryan> Now its like being at a tennis game between Bulger and OT
11:00:57 <KorbenC> and I have only met Tara, and Polly :( I was gonna meet more people this year, but I guess I have to wait :(
11:03:35 <Ryan> Actually doing real caving tonight.
11:03:41 <Ryan> I have the setsuit packed!!
11:03:48 <Ryan> wetsuit*
11:03:48 <CraigC> Eric, is luke on FB?
11:05:29 <CraigC> releasing weather balloons at launch site
11:05:48 <CraigC> expecting improvement in weather
11:08:06 <KorbenC> NOAA Emailed me with an update, "Weather apears to be moderate to normal for SpaceX's launch. The Current Expected winto appears conductive for minor to moderate thunderstorms during launch. We have Deployed 4 radar teams, and weather balloons to analyze the mesoscale to determine launch probability"
11:08:22 <KorbenC> I still cannot type :)
11:09:03 <CraigC> you get typos when you copy and paste? that takes special talent
11:09:12 <KorbenC> no, I was paraphrasing
11:09:44 <CraigC> hey Forest
11:09:51 <ForestBeWithYou> hello
11:09:56 <KorbenC> hey Forest
11:09:58 <CraigC> nice nickname LOL
11:10:14 <ForestBeWithYou> Thanks!
11:10:15 <KorbenC> Craig, BTW, you are still marked away :)
11:10:38 <CraigC> wb Craig
11:11:07 <KorbenC> Not Again!
11:11:11 <CraigC> omg
11:11:11 <Dave from B™> JAKE!!!!
11:11:14 <Neon + 1> I did nothing!
11:11:21 <Neon + 1> it started on its own!
11:11:42 <KorbenC> Neon + 1 is curesed, lol
11:12:05 <ynpvisitor54> watch out - when that happened to me Eric threatened to block me
11:12:17 <CraigC> anemone
11:12:28 <Eric> It was the sane thing to do 54
11:12:41 <Eric> I would block Jake to if it kept up :-P
11:12:58 <Eric> apparently a /quit /connect yourname fixes it
11:13:12 <KorbenC> haha Dave
11:13:24 <Eric> But watchout for the algorithm that kicks Bobs!
11:13:27 <ynpvisitor54> lol
11:13:37 <Eric> haha
11:13:49 <Eric> Jake....your killing me
11:13:53 <Eric> lion
11:14:04 <Eric> ini I guess
11:14:16 <CraigC> Forest, I retract my suggestion of asking Jake for help with computer or innerwebs stuff
11:14:32 <Eric> Hi Forest..long time no see
11:14:36 <CraigC> astronauts walking out
11:15:09 <Dave from B™> oh no
11:15:16 <KorbenC> uhoh
11:15:23 <Dave from B™> oopsie
11:15:24 <KorbenC> ERIC!!! What are you doing :P
11:15:46 <CraigC> maybe this is because Twitter upset someone
11:16:16 <JarnoO> well then... This'll be something which will persist for a bit. Just add a plus and spam away :D
11:16:19 <KorbenC> Eric, have you done any good hikes recently?
11:16:41 <KorbenC> what exactly is causing it?
11:17:16 <CraigC> geeez, this gets me emotonally watching these families say bye to the astronauts
11:17:40 <Eric> If anyone wants to watch SpaceX launch:
11:17:57 <Eric> nauts are heading to launch site
11:18:02 <Eric> in their Teslas :-P
11:18:16 <KorbenC> those are some nice Teslas.
11:19:19 <Eric> Are these guys canadian launching? Bob & Doug?
11:19:33 <ynpvisitor54> was it 9 years since the last
11:19:38 <Eric> Is there last name McKenzie?
11:19:51 <CraigC> LOL
11:19:58 <KorbenC> I have no idea :) all I know is that my 2 parakeets I had before the dog ate them were named Bob and Doug ;)
11:20:02 <CraigC> strange brews
11:20:06 <Eric> Yep 54...been a long time since the USA has launched astronauts into space!
11:20:42 <(Neon + 1)^2 - > I'm guessing the + sign in the name is causing Javascript havoc
11:21:22 <Ryan> quit
11:21:44 <Ryan> Specifically it is the " + " with spacing
11:21:45 <Eric> Yep, the + in the quit must trigger some crazy issues
11:22:04 <Eric> or in change name I guess
11:22:04 <KorbenC> does it only happen if it is at the end?
11:22:38 <Eric> ok....I think enough debugging :-D
11:22:43 <Eric> thanks Korben
11:22:47 <Dave from B™> Why are we all testing Eric's patience today?
11:22:50 <Eric> and everyone else :-D
11:22:56 <ynpvisitor54> Thanks Eric. I was going to say "manned" launch but that would be ***ist
11:22:58 <Ryan> Yeah we already determined it didnt need to be at the end....
11:23:27 <KorbenC> but it does not care about it being in the middle, which I find interesting
11:23:43 <Eric> I think manned flight is least in my nomenclature, mankind means everyone.
11:24:19 <Ryan> There is probably something in the Java script which uses the character "+" for changing names and it causes a constant feedback loop.
11:28:06 <Eric> Seems to be a server issue, not a client/javascript issue
11:28:50 <Forestbewithyou> I had to switch browsers.
11:32:01 <Eric> cool history of 39a on live stream now
11:35:11 <Ryan> Rocket is smaller than I thought.
11:35:27 <Ryan> Not sure why I expected 230ft to be taller
11:36:30 <Ryan> Guess it is a lot bigger when you're on one end looking up or down.
11:36:38 <Eric> It does look smaller than I would have expected.
11:36:56 <CraigC> hope they heard Major Tom
11:37:09 <Eric> but scale is so hard to get when everything on that launchpad is huge
11:37:50 <Dave from B™> Seems too thin
11:38:34 <CraigC> lots of TWSSs
11:39:52 <Eric> WTFITC
11:40:00 <CraigC> Bricklin had wing doors before Delorean
11:40:35 <CraigC> these suits remind me of 007
11:41:02 <Eric> Agree so weird
11:41:25 <CraigC> or Austin Powers
11:45:10 <Eric> I was thinking spaceballs :-P
11:48:21 <CraigC> Eric, yeah, the support team
11:48:52 <CraigC> those head coverings are really weird
11:50:06 <Dave from B™> Where did they get those numbered uniforms?
11:52:10 <CraigC> we're still almost 3 hours away
11:52:54 <Ryan> Wow, the inside of the Dragon is ***y.
11:52:55 <ynpvisitor54> will "Steamboat launch today?
11:53:13 <Eric> Interesting that bob is wearing glasses.
11:53:59 <Eric> Agree Ryan...they had a short section about the design of that interior a little while ago.
11:54:23 <Eric> The seats are heat molded to their bodies
11:54:36 <Eric> Sure makes Gs easier to take.
11:54:38 <JarnoO> Riverside just puffed
11:54:40 <Dave from B™> I will predict SB for tomorrow so it can erupt today
11:54:43 <JarnoO> I thinik
11:54:57 <JarnoO> Riverside ie
11:55:36 <JarnoO> Daisy
11:55:59 <JarnoO> 2h02m again
11:56:12 <CraigC> 6 got a little too friendly
11:56:30 <Eric> haha...they are in their bondage suits :-P
11:56:37 <CraigC> ;)
11:59:37 <CraigC> Cooper, is SpaceX checking in with you for weather data?
12:00:34 <ynpvisitor54> just ask Kat :P
12:08:48 <Eric> Looks like their helmets cannot go all the way open due to seat design
12:09:50 <Jeff> lion
12:09:51 <Eric> Bob & Doug watching some netflix on their screens
12:10:02 <Eric> interesting...early
12:10:05 <Eric> Hi Jeff
12:10:07 <Jeff> um nvm
12:10:09 <Jeff> hi eric
12:10:15 <Eric> We must have missed lion ini
12:10:26 <Eric> ohh, nevermind, I missed ini :-P
12:11:04 <Jeff> i guess it wanted to toy with me lol
12:11:44 <Jeff> how are you today eric
12:12:00 <Eric> doing well, watching spaceX flight prep for launch
12:12:05 <Jeff> nice
12:12:13 <Eric> But they really need to remove this horrible social media person!
12:12:45 <Eric> actually just nix the whole social media engagement stuff.
12:13:06 <Jeff> go back to how it was before where they just aired it on tv
12:14:16 <Jeff> but im back on my countdown to yellowstone
12:17:52 <CraigC> Jeff, what's it looking like for back to work date?
12:18:22 <Jeff> barring any last minute changes, june 22nd is my new start date in yellowstone
12:18:30 <Jeff> so just under 4 weeks
12:18:31 <CraigC> cool
12:18:45 <Jeff> wishing i could go now
12:18:51 <Ryan> Color me green
12:20:40 <KorbenC> Had a nice walk, but man it is hot here in CO!! 76 Degrees F!
12:20:59 <Jeff> send some of that down here to me
12:21:02 <Jeff> its 97 for me
12:21:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How toasty!
12:21:16 <CraigC> weird to hear Musk admit he didn't have confidence in his long term goals
12:21:17 <Ryan> 92 here
12:21:19 <Forestbewithyou> That's not that hot. It's 82 here
12:21:21 <KorbenC> I wan 25 degrees and snowing :)
12:21:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 98° here
12:21:41 <KorbenC> Its hot for me, as is anything about 55 :)
12:21:52 <Ryan> Went for a run yesterday and went swimming halfway through it
12:22:37 <Forestbewithyou> We are having our summer weather now. But thankfully it will cool back down in a couple of days
12:22:50 <KorbenC> I am wondering what SB is doing right now, hopefully it is having nice concerted minors.
12:23:24 <KorbenC> you are lucky Forest
12:23:27 <Ryan> If it wants to regain my respect it will be doing very nice minors.... ;)
12:23:32 <Forestbewithyou> why?
12:23:54 <KorbenC> the weather will be cooling down, unless you love the heat
12:23:59 <Jeff> if it wants me to like it again itll go when im actually there lol
12:24:37 <Forestbewithyou> Yea I dislike the summers here. I love my 70's and 60's with low humitiy.
12:24:52 <Jeff> i hate arizona summers
12:25:20 <KorbenC> and to think that CO is gonna have 84, with a DSPI of 11, yuck.
12:25:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Summer is not fun.
12:25:43 <Ryan> I like what ever weather lets me wear less clothes
12:25:52 <Dave from B™> The sun is our friend:)
12:26:03 <KorbenC> and keyboards are not ;)
12:26:10 <Ryan> Compression shorts and preferably nothing else is preferred on my end.
12:26:24 <Jeff> keyboards are my friend cause need them for work lol
12:26:51 <KorbenC> well, I wear shorts and T-Shirts in 45 degree weather, and start putting on more cloths at 32.
12:27:17 <Jeff> im kinda the same way korben lol i dont start adding layers until i see snow falling lol
12:27:30 <KorbenC> :)
12:27:40 <KorbenC> But you live in AZ right>
12:27:50 <Jeff> yup
12:28:19 <KorbenC> Flagstaff area?
12:28:50 <Jeff> phoenix
12:29:01 <KorbenC> Dragons Hatch has been closed, they are locked in the ship
12:29:11 <KorbenC> So then, how often do you see snlw lol
12:29:47 <Jeff> on the ground.... never but on the mountain peaks during winter like 2-3 weeks a year in january-february
12:30:19 <Dave from B™> Claustrophobia!
12:31:06 <KorbenC> well that is bad, my dad just dropped a bowl of Popcorn on the ground :P Dogs are gonna be fat today!
12:31:50 <Ryan> I like not having to expend energy to keep my body warm
12:32:09 <KorbenC> I can see that Ryan, makes it easy
12:32:12 <Jeff> its pretty easy for me to keep warm lol
12:32:58 <Ryan> I run cold,
12:33:16 <KorbenC> 2 Hours till Dragon Launch
12:33:28 <Forestbewithyou> I must say that steam devil from old faithful this morning is super cool!
12:33:44 <KorbenC> Forest, yeah! It was a long one too.
12:34:05 <KorbenC> wait, did I find a third person that is relativivley young? Jarno, Me, and maybe forest :)
12:34:53 <Ryan> Uh, hello?
12:35:04 <Forestbewithyou> It's not really a question I am young
12:35:09 <KorbenC> Ryan, haha
12:35:40 <KorbenC> Well, I am 14, Jarno is somwhere between 17 and 21 :) Ryan is maybe 25 :)
12:36:02 <Dave from B™> And, I'm only 29
12:36:08 <Forestbewithyou> I turned 17 yesterday
12:36:17 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou2, Happy Birthday to you!
12:36:27 <Forestbewithyou> Thanks!
12:36:30 <KorbenC> Dave, you sure, I think that might be a typo?
12:36:40 <Ryan> Micah and Mara are younger than me, too.
12:36:41 <Eric> Happy Birthday Forest
12:36:48 <KorbenC> hopefully you found something fun to do yesterday :)
12:36:49 <Jeff> i wish i was still younger lol
12:36:51 <Dave from B™> Well, it's not dog years
12:36:53 <Jeff> happy birthday forest
12:37:33 <Forestbewithyou> Thank You!
12:37:39 <Eric> Tree years?
12:37:48 <KorbenC> Jarno, I am basing that on the fact that you have kids, which are going to college :) unless you had them when you were like 10 then, there is a problem Dave!
12:37:53 <KorbenC> Dave, not Jarno
12:38:16 <KorbenC> that has to be the worst typo I have done in a long time
12:38:42 <Dave from B™> yep..57 years young
12:38:55 <Ryan> Age is more a mindset. Dave is pretty young :)
12:38:56 <CraigC> the worst typos are when your letters are arranged as "I am not wrong"
12:39:07 <KorbenC> haha
12:39:31 <KorbenC> But this is to Jarno, Bertha is now degraded to a TD, and the invest in the pacific is now 30%, 80%
12:39:50 <Forestbewithyou> I am not surprised
12:39:56 <Forestbewithyou> Bertha formed really quickly
12:40:01 <KorbenC> yeah.
12:40:15 <Dave from B™> I agree, Ryan. I felt a LOT younger 3 months ago, however. Working to get back there.
12:40:25 <KorbenC> Those upper level winds went away, and instead it got fed by a stream of low level troughs, and poof, you get a TS
12:40:40 <Jeff> ill feel younger when i can start walking around the basin again
12:40:45 <Ryan> Yeah, I got one of my first brushes of age these last couple of weeks.
12:41:14 <KorbenC> speaking of which, has Joe gone in the park this week?
12:41:14 <Ryan> The transition from winter diets to summer diets threw my electrolytes and sugars way out of whack. Normally I just power through it, this season though it left me dizzy for a few days.
12:41:47 <Ryan> My body is rapidly becoming far more sensitive to diet than it used to be.
12:42:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> In dog years, i'm dead.
12:42:46 <Dave from B™> Kevin, but you're not:)
12:42:55 <KorbenC> haha Kevin, at least your arent dead
12:43:05 <KorbenC> Ryan, is that what the weird body aches were from?
12:43:07 <CraigC> how do you guys know?
12:43:49 <CraigC> maybe dead people still chat
12:43:50 <Ryan> No, KC.
12:44:19 <Ryan> CraigC, they can vote.
12:44:52 <Ryan> ;)
12:45:17 <CraigC> and they get stimulus checks, too
12:45:57 <CraigC> is it snowing at launch?
12:46:23 <KorbenC> huh, it might be, there is something falling
12:46:32 <Dave from B™> Did Doug comb his hair?
12:46:35 <Forestbewithyou> I think it is rain
12:46:38 <CraigC> or was it bugs?
12:46:52 <KorbenC> but based on DBZ, it looks like Rain
12:46:52 <Forestbewithyou> I will check my radar and see
12:47:00 <Eric> Trump flew down for the launch
12:47:05 <KorbenC> Froest, already checked radar
12:47:08 <Eric> Good on him
12:47:12 <Ryan> Oh look its the death sta - I mean Air Force One.
12:47:20 <CraigC> ;)
12:47:36 <CraigC> hears Imperial Music
12:48:05 <Eric> Rain looks ugly
12:48:11 <Ryan> Actually NASA, and Florida, weren't too thrilled with him comking down.
12:48:30 <Ryan> The really want to limit crowds as much as possible during COVID
12:48:33 <Eric> Yes, I am sure it causes a lot of headaches they didn't need
12:48:40 <Forestbewithyou> Nice. Korben.
12:48:55 <KorbenC> looking at Radar, along with D-Index, and CAPE, along with storm lift, and wind shear, along with LogZ charts. Storms look to be degrading and ending, weather looks good during launch window now.
12:49:20 <Ryan> They actually put out a statement urging people not to congregate on the beaches to watch the launch. And his visit is another example of not following basic suggestions in the pandemic.
12:49:48 <Dave from B™> Closeout crew is almost ready to leave launch pad
12:49:54 <Eric> I hope it clears Korben...they said the bad weather pattern was degrading, so hopefully their models predict correctly.
12:50:22 <Ryan> What is their actual concern?
12:50:29 <Ryan> With the shuttle it was precip hitting the tiles.
12:50:37 <JarnoO> Trump golfing on the launchpad?
12:50:50 <Eric> The social media person with their Members Only NASA jacket is horrible :-P
12:50:51 <Ryan> That doesnt sound like a concern to me.
12:50:59 <Katie> The moral boost of a successful launch today would be awesome. I've got launch feed open in another window.
12:51:10 <Eric> Me too Katie
12:51:14 <Katie> And yes, that social media person is juvenile/amateurish
12:51:17 <Eric> I think most of us do :-D
12:51:18 <KorbenC> Eric, the data that you can request when you are a SKYWARN Spotter tells me that it looks like there is a 25% of weather problems at that time
12:51:34 <Ryan> I will be in the dentists chair for launch.
12:51:41 <Ryan> Maybe I will stream it on my phone and listen haha
12:51:52 <Eric> Change your appointment!
12:52:07 <Ryan> I can't! I have a cave trip after wards.
12:52:08 <KorbenC> Ryan, right now it looks like their primary concern is high amounts of lighning, and extreme wind shear that is occuring with the stronger thunderstorms down there
12:52:25 <Ryan> And I both want to get wet and cold AND fix the jagged hole in my tooth.
12:52:31 <Ryan> KC have a link for their concerns?
12:53:01 <Eric> I want to play hooky after the launch and head hiking myself :-D
12:53:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We just hit triple digits here.
12:53:08 <Eric> going to be 80 degrees today and sunny
12:53:19 <KorbenC> do you have a spotter ID and Passoword? right now I see it posted on Spotter Pages, but I can try to find it for public
12:53:29 <Eric> They hit triple digits in the bay area last weekend too!
12:53:49 <Ryan> No. There's no public link for what SpaceX and NASA consider launch criteria?
12:54:12 <KorbenC> well, I am saying what NOAA claims are the main issues, not SpaceX/NASA
12:54:42 <KorbenC> The closest thing I can find is the hazerdous weather outlook they issued,
12:54:54 <KorbenC> explains the general impact, and what they think are the big risks
12:55:13 <Dave from B™> How about a SpaceX Steamboat Dual "launch"
12:55:16 <Eric> This ISS guy is horrible too
12:55:39 <Eric> SpaceX satellite webcam of the park :-D
12:55:53 <Eric> See all basins, all the time :-P
12:56:05 <Katie> You made me pay attention. I'm multi-tasking (as usual) and it's kinda there in the background until we get closer to actual launch time.
12:57:31 <Ryan> KC, yeah that isnt launch criteria
12:57:52 <KorbenC> I dont have launch criteria
12:58:04 <KorbenC> I am just stating what the main weather concerns are for that area
12:59:22 <KorbenC> Ryan, sorry, I cant find the launch criteria
12:59:22 <Ryan> Yeah, I am curious as to what the launch criteria are haha
12:59:37 <KorbenC> let me know if you find it
13:00:09 <Ryan> Alrighty, off to the dentist and to go caving
13:00:16 <Ryan> Good luck with the launch
13:00:19 <KorbenC> good lcuk
13:00:33 <Forestbewithyou> here is something for falcon 9
13:00:38 <Ryan> and I hope Steamboat gets it's act together and get's back in real business.
13:02:13 <Forestbewithyou> I hope that helps
13:02:32 <JarnoO> Ryan, will the dentist cave in your teeth or caving as in cavin? :)
13:02:39 <JarnoO> caving*
13:02:45 <KorbenC> perfect, many thanks Forest
13:02:56 <Forestbewithyou> Yea!
13:03:02 <Forestbewithyou> No Problem!
13:04:20 <KorbenC> cna that NASA guy have a worse Jacket? lol
13:07:29 <Kat> Weather - raining like crazy, thunder and lightening in the area! Doubting launch today but....
13:07:42 <CraigC> :(
13:08:01 <KorbenC> still an hour and half away!
13:08:40 <Kat> I would be crazy if it cleared off in time, plus they have so much off shore to consider
13:09:09 <Kat> It*
13:09:16 <Dave from B™> Kat, are you watching? If so, how far are you from your home?
13:10:00 <Jake> Beehive before rocket launch, you heard it here first
13:10:29 <CraigC> me admits he had tears seeing kid wave goodbye
13:10:47 <Dave from B™> It's okay to have feelings:)
13:10:50 <Katie> Now they have a spinning shuttle graphic over the talking head window. Cool. *laughs*
13:10:52 <Jake> you dropped this /
13:10:55 <CraigC> I am doing alwful at the /me
13:11:03 <Jake> makes you sound like cookie monster
13:11:08 <CraigC> LOL
13:11:18 <Kat> I am at home - by road I'm about 10 miles - going the way the crow fies much less!
13:11:27 <CraigC> Kat, so jealous
13:11:30 <Eric> Lets see if Jakes prediction is better than the GT BH one :-P
13:11:36 <KorbenC>
13:11:53 <Dave from B™> The SpaceX closeout crew has departed the crew access arm at pad 39A. Mission control informs the Dragon astronauts than any emergency egress from this point forward in the countdown will be unassisted.
13:12:03 <Kat> flies* weather hits home first then east toward Canaveral
13:12:10 <Eric> Apparently that storm is going to degrade pretty quickly Kat....they expect to launch.
13:12:46 <Eric> Ugg, spaceX coverage doesn't have the countdown :-(
13:12:53 <Kat> Hope it clears enough for me to see it from the deck!
13:13:17 <CraigC> countdown on this one;
13:13:43 <Eric> Does NASA have it's own feed?
13:14:02 <Kat> It won't even be a good launch for pictures...last one was clear at Canaveral and cloudy here.
13:14:08 <Dave from B™> That water tower seems awful close to launch pad
13:14:12 <CraigC> Eric, yes
13:14:17 <KorbenC> Eric,
13:14:30 <CraigC> I am on the NASA feed
13:15:44 <Eric> NASA and SpaceX the same, but NASA is about 30 seconds behind
13:15:53 <Eric> No surprise :-P
13:16:11 <CraigC> hit the fast forward arrow
13:16:49 <Eric> Both live
13:17:10 <KorbenC> Lightning Weather rule is a GO, while Elecric Fields, Anvils and Percipitation are still NO GO for launch
13:17:16 <Eric> It's like flash versus hls video here :-P
13:18:14 <Eric> Is there someplace I can just listen to the control room feeds and not have the annoying announcers?
13:18:34 <Dave from B™> Eric, that would take getting sa job for SpaceX:)
13:19:00 <CraigC> '/ignore annoying announcers'
13:19:28 <KorbenC> haha
13:19:37 <Eric> exactly!
13:19:42 <Eric> shatner and nye
13:19:48 <CraigC> dear lord
13:20:11 <Dave from B™> How about Sheldon Cooper?
13:20:30 <CraigC> Dave from B™, he goes by Korben now
13:20:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is called mute Eric.
13:20:47 <KorbenC> I have heard of Nye, but hate him, I have never heard of Sheldon, even though he looks familliar
13:22:15 <Forestbewithyou> I love Sheldon Cooper
13:22:25 <CraigC> Forestbewithyou2, :thumbsup:
13:22:50 <Dave from B™> Great cast
13:22:52 <KorbenC> oh, wow, I just realized who Sheldon Cooper is :)
13:23:14 <Forestbewithyou> BAZINGA!
13:23:23 <Dave from B™> haha
13:23:29 <CraigC> KorbenC, do you know who Shatner is?
13:23:31 <KorbenC> lol
13:23:59 <KorbenC> CraigC, yes
13:24:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Isn't he the fat guy that advertises cpap stuff?
13:24:28 <CraigC> he performs Karaoke
13:25:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you ever heard he rendition of Lucy In the Sky? :P
13:25:14 <CraigC> yup, proiceless
13:25:24 <Dave from B™>, I see images of CraigC singing the Lion sleeps tonight
13:25:45 <CraigC> that was my bronx accent
13:26:15 <CraigC> Dave from B™, what am I wearing in your image?
13:26:43 <CraigC> if you need to PM me, that is ok
13:27:08 <Forestbewithyou> I am done with homework!!
13:27:53 <Dave from B™> hahahaha...the image is still not in focus, Craig
13:28:42 <CraigC> thanks to Eric, every time I hear "Bob and Doug", I see Rick Moranis launching into space
13:34:04 <KorbenC> Forest, how long do you ahve left in school?
13:34:05 <KorbenC> Hey Lori
13:34:13 <Lori S> Hi Korben & all
13:34:22 <CraigC> hey Lori
13:34:34 <ynpvisitor52> nice day for Suzanne and hk to sit at SB
13:34:43 <Lori S> Hi Craig
13:35:01 <CraigC> go for launch
13:35:25 <JarnoO> afternoon Lori
13:35:28 <Forestbewithyou> School for us goes until next week thursday. However it seems like Monday is the last day of learning... Most of my teachers are handing out final assigments due monday
13:35:41 <Lori S> If things continue as they currently are in this town, the West gate will remain closed all summer
13:35:41 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
13:35:50 <KorbenC> why is that Lori?
13:35:54 <Lori S> Hi Jarno
13:36:13 <CraigC> Lori S, sorry to hear that
13:36:25 <Lori S> Just ran errands to 5 places...
13:36:40 <Lori S> I saw 1 employee wearing a mask. ONE
13:36:53 <ynpvisitor52> link for launch?
13:36:55 <CraigC> :(
13:37:05 <Lori S> Tourists are not at all cognizant of the 6 ft perwonal space
13:37:07 <CraigC> I am watching this one;
13:37:24 <CraigC> this one has countdown;
13:37:50 <CraigC> NASA added countdown
13:38:33 <Lori S> The restaurant I went to had not distanced their tables, marked their floors for 6 ft, and the employees SERVING AND COOKING were not wearing masks.
13:39:28 <ynpvisitor52> why did you go to a restaurant??
13:39:43 <ynpvisitor52> hey, the astronaut has glasses!
13:40:02 <ynpvisitor52> so they are 55 minutes late CraigC?
13:40:07 <JarnoO> do know that masks aren't everything. Here in the Netherlands they barely wear masks and we're going out of lockdown.
13:40:13 <CraigC> ynpvisitor52, no
13:40:22 <Lori S> To see if they were doing the right thing. And I wanted ribs.
13:40:35 <CraigC> ynpvisitor52, this is on schedule
13:40:40 <Lori S> Got it to go
13:41:18 <ynpvisitor52> Jarno please stop, do not compare your tiny country to the US
13:41:19 <Lori S> JarnoO, I get that. But if folks are gonna share air right next to me, I am wearing one.
13:41:30 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor52, WOOOAAAHHH!
13:41:44 <KorbenC> His Country is doing way better than the usa
13:41:49 <CraigC> each link matters
13:41:58 <ynpvisitor52> there is no comparison to the stupidity of the US
13:42:02 <CraigC> it only takes one broken link
13:42:27 <ynpvisitor52> so CraigC, the launch is in 50 minutes?
13:42:33 <CraigC> ynpvisitor52, yes
13:42:37 <ynpvisitor52> ty
13:42:37 <KorbenC> 52 Minutes 17 Seconds
13:42:43 <KorbenC> 51 mins*
13:42:57 <ynpvisitor52> KC, you are sounding an awful lot like Ryan these days...
13:43:07 <KorbenC> ?
13:43:15 <Jake> there's still a lot of unknowns. if masks don't help the wearer but everyone else around them, then West Yellowstone would be better off requiring masks of all visitors
13:43:26 <Jake> but if they do that, they'll lose visitors
13:43:51 <Jake> so just hope that a reduction in super-spreader events is enough to keep the curve from going exponential
13:44:03 <Jake> and that businesses let their employees stay home when sick
13:44:09 <Lori S> Jake, got that's sad
13:44:20 <Jake> and that those food preparers and servers don't become asymptomatic carriers
13:44:42 <ynpvisitor52> it will happen in Yellowstone Jake
13:44:51 <CraigC> places like West and Gardiner don't have a lot of wiggle room for higher than expected numbers
13:44:56 <KorbenC> we need to find a balance between safety, and reopening, which is not very easy,
13:44:57 <Lori S> Jake, if they do, it will be without pay, I see emps hiding that they are sick
13:45:04 <Jake> if a whole bunch of people come to WestY and leave with COVID, who cares? if they bring COVID and give it to all of WestY, that's a problem
13:45:05 <Kat> Trump is walking around the VAB -vehicle assembly building - without a mask of course
13:45:34 <JarnoO> they did do research on masks. It turned out only the medical masks help prevent the virus from spreading, other plain ol' masks only reduce the spreading of the virus by a few percentages
13:45:36 <CraigC> Kat, where are you seeing that?
13:45:51 <Kat> ON my local news
13:45:54 <ynpvisitor52> Lots of videos about no mask wearers are stating that the president doesn't wear one, so why should they.
13:45:56 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
13:45:57 <Lori S> Jake, it's the tourists bringing it here I worry about.
13:46:26 <Kat> It's on all our local channels
13:46:32 <ynpvisitor14>
13:46:42 <ynpvisitor52> sad local channels are still carrying Trump
13:46:46 <Lori S> But of the locals don't set a good example, community spread will be a real thing
13:46:47 <Jake> it will be a big problem if one hotel and their 6 seasonal employees all get it
13:46:57 <Kat> ynpvisitor52, agreed
13:47:00 <Jake> close down for the season or power on and infect a few hundred others
13:47:17 <CraigC> hey Linda
13:47:18 <KorbenC> Heyo Linda
13:47:24 <ynpvisitor52> if employees do not disclose being sick, West is in for a world of hurt
13:47:30 <Kat> Hi Linda
13:47:40 <LindaG> Hi CraigC, KorbenC, Kat,
13:47:42 <Lori S> Hello LInda Hello
13:47:54 <LindaG> Hello lori hello
13:48:27 <LindaG> Just got back fro shopping, used to be enjoyable
13:48:31 <Jake> I don't know Xanterra's situation for dorms, but the same could easily happen there. I've seen a dorm's reaction to the word "bed bugs" If word gets out that someone tested positive, yikes.
13:48:42 <Lori S> ynpvisitor52, west is in for a world of hurt regardless because the majority here refuse to believe COVID is a real thing
13:48:53 <ynpvisitor52> still no word from Sholly about MT gates, maybe they will wait longer than June 1
13:49:25 <Jake> I got written up by Xanterra for missing work. I had a fever of 102 and went to work one day otherwise I'd get fired
13:49:37 <ynpvisitor52> NPS on FB kept saying in their post comments that a decision would be announced soon
13:49:49 <ynpvisitor52> that is crazy Jake
13:49:55 <ynpvisitor52> they might rethink that policy this year
13:50:02 <Lori S> ynpvisitor52, If I could bet on the opening date, it wouldn't be 6/1
13:50:38 <ynpvisitor52> your town folk might rush the gate LoriS
13:50:46 <Kat> Moving the narm away from the rocket!
13:50:53 <Kat> arm*
13:51:00 <Lori S> this townfolk would rushit at 3 am for Norris
13:51:50 <ynpvisitor52> do you have gate cutting materials?
13:51:57 <Lori S> We avoided crowds and crowd times before this thing and we have no plan to change that.
13:52:20 <Jake> acetylene torch cures covid and locked gates
13:52:36 <CraigC> going into the park would be fine IF people were not stupid
13:52:51 <Lori S> My other half returned to work last Friday. He has the gate combo. he will not tell me what it is. LOL
13:53:02 <Jake> half the population is of below average intelligence
13:53:08 <ynpvisitor52> I think that is the plan, it will be interesting how the park LEs react
13:53:09 <Lori S> He knows Steamboat is too tempting
13:53:21 <ynpvisitor82> :)
13:53:31 <ynpvisitor52> you could pretend you are someone's guest and go in
13:54:05 <JarnoO> afternoon Kent
13:54:31 <Lori S> To me, it is much too great a risk to "sneak" in. I could lose access to Steamboat for many years.
13:55:08 <ynpvisitor52> suzanne and hk are there as Mike's guest and he is not with you just need a name
13:55:32 <ynpvisitor52> yet I get where you are coming from
13:57:17 <Lori S> Well, I am still not back to work so I could drive the long way. Have considered that option for sure.
13:57:18 <Kent> Hey Jarno
13:57:18 <JarnoO> Daisy
13:57:38 <JarnoO> 2h02m again
13:58:12 <LindaG> My third daisy of the day 🙂
13:59:12 <LindaG> Did that just restart?
13:59:24 <Kent> It was strange
13:59:50 <LindaG> It was, thought it was done, but too early
14:00:35 <LindaG> Again
14:00:51 <Kent> I may have to look at the 15 minutes of fun thingy on this one
14:01:10 <LindaG> 😊 me too
14:03:13 <Eric> So they are loading fuel now...
14:03:22 <Eric> will be interesting to see if weather improves.
14:05:02 <Kat> Weather is getting better - depending which direction I look
14:05:05 <JarnoO> ~3m18s for Daisy
14:05:18 <JarnoO> also start one minute earlier :)
14:05:32 <LindaG> It looks like the water stopped momentarily
14:05:40 <Eric> They are loading helium, so no scrub yet
14:06:22 <Dave from B™> No, because she said to Lori, "your" town folk
14:06:31 <Dave from B™> without the quotes
14:06:42 <Kat> Eric, weather is still "red"
14:06:52 <JarnoO> OF ie static
14:06:55 <ynpvisitorX> Helium? They going to try and float into space?
14:07:13 <Eric> Sounds like only one gate due to electricity fields still holding up launch.
14:07:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Surprise
14:07:58 <Eric> helium is use to backfill tanks on fuel use
14:07:59 <Lori S> hmmm. 2 burst Daisy lol
14:08:15 <Eric> it's non-reactive so no worries about it causing mixing issues
14:08:20 <Kat> At T-20 they will decide weather or not to scrub - there is a charge in the atmosphere concerned about lightening
14:08:46 <Eric> yep 5 minutes away
14:09:39 <Kat> I will watch from home- too many people out there for me!
14:09:57 <ynpvisitor52> you live right there Kat?
14:10:02 <Kat> Sky has not cleared in my estimation
14:10:02 <Eric> Good call
14:10:35 <Kat> I have photos from many years of launches! My Dad had a press pass!
14:10:59 <ynpvisitor52> so you could walk to the launch?
14:11:01 <Kat> Go for Launch!
14:11:08 <ynpvisitor52> YEAH
14:11:22 <Eric> Woot
14:11:36 <Eric> haven't heard that yet
14:11:45 <Kat> I'm am going down the street for a better view!
14:12:02 <ynpvisitor52> have fun
14:12:17 <Eric> My grandparents lived in East Daytona Beach, so I spent some time there
14:12:30 <Kat> ynpvisitor52, No - but we had good friends on the Indian River across from Launch pad and we watched from their dock!
14:13:14 <ynpvisitor52> great memories
14:13:36 <Eric> rp1 load complete
14:13:45 <Lori S> lots of trolls on the chat on that launch link
14:14:04 <ynpvisitor52> I'm watching one without comments
14:14:08 <Eric> bummer :-(
14:14:15 <Eric> no go
14:14:23 <Eric> 10 minutes too long
14:14:40 <Lori S> The earth is a cube. That's rich
14:14:42 <Kat> waiting - they are giving conflicting info
14:14:53 <Eric> I heard no go
14:15:03 <Eric> from control
14:15:08 <ynpvisitor52> me too, then voice went out
14:15:13 <Kent> :(
14:15:18 <ynpvisitorX> Space suits look funny.
14:15:33 <Eric> Elon musk designed them...what you expect :-P
14:15:56 <ynpvisitorX> Looks like they came out of a bad movie.
14:16:06 <Eric> Spaceballs?
14:16:21 <Eric> You should have seen the launch pad crew....
14:16:23 <ynpvisitor52> geez, they are just uniforms, they look fine to me
14:16:25 <ynpvisitorX> Shagadelic
14:16:35 <Eric> haha, exactly
14:16:53 <ynpvisitor52> drat
14:16:57 <Eric> launch aborted
14:17:04 <ynpvisitor52> so is the fuel wasted?
14:17:14 <Kat> Looks like a no go - clearing not to come until 10 min post window! Looks like a Saturday launch - maybe I will go closer and get some pics for Craig
14:17:23 <ynpvisitor52> I guess astronauts are prepared for these things
14:17:30 <KorbenC> launch abort. Full.
14:17:31 <Kat> Launch out of sequence - "No launch today"
14:17:42 <ynpvisitor52> too bad, so close
14:17:51 <Kat> :(
14:18:07 <KorbenC> when is it gonna launch next? Tommrow?
14:18:14 <ynpvisitor52> Saturday
14:18:17 <CraigC> 30th?
14:18:27 <CraigC> F***
14:18:42 <Kat> Saturday - I will try to go to Port Canaveral - photo for all you launch freaks Hahaha
14:18:45 <ynpvisitor54> ]
14:19:10 <Kat> CraigC, I got your back!
14:19:11 <Lori S> CraigC, Fudge has 5 letters
14:19:17 <KorbenC> what time Saturday?
14:19:18 <CraigC> Kat, thanks
14:19:21 <Dave from B™> Jake, BH before Space Launch:)
14:19:24 <Kat> :)
14:19:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe a couple Dave.
14:19:49 <Kat> BH will go on Saturday too!
14:20:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sort of like watching a Nascar race.
14:20:40 <ynpvisitorX> Dave did it, he was watching.
14:20:58 <CraigC> 322 et
14:20:58 <Lori S> ynpvisitorX, LOL
14:21:12 <Lori S> poor dave
14:21:39 <ynpvisitorX> nascar will start a race in the rain.
14:21:42 <CraigC> let's all meet here on Sat at 4 am and sit for 11 hours until Launch
14:21:46 <JarnoO> Korben, invest on the Pacific 30%/80%
14:22:04 <Katie> Well, that was anticlimactic. But I prefer that to the last launch that I watched with this much interest.
14:22:13 <Kat> CraigC, I'll be over at Port Canaveral -
14:22:24 <CraigC> *all but Kat
14:22:34 <Kat> :)
14:22:50 <KorbenC> JarnoO, yup
14:23:18 <KorbenC> Saturday looks stormy too :(
14:23:19 <Kat> Time to charge the Nikon batteries and get out the big lenses! haha
14:24:43 <Kat> KorbenC, It's that time of year in FL
14:26:40 <ynpvisitor6> copper kettle must be overflowing
14:26:54 <ynpvisitor6> everyone is stopping to touch the water
14:28:08 <ynpvisitor6> wow, 2 people chose not to touch, What a concept!
14:28:25 <Kent> OK, mid screen right. A thermal with a channel down to the boardwalk. What is the thermal? Thanks.
14:28:51 <ynpvisitor6> copper kettle
14:29:11 <Kent> I'll go look it up. TY
14:29:13 <ynpvisitor6> part of the runoff comes from just below Plume area
14:30:34 <ynpvisitor6> copper kettle is the other side of the boardwalk on the mid left screen
14:30:44 <Kent> I miss Plume!!! Pump is not an adequate substitute.
14:31:31 <ynpvisitor6> that is what you are talking about or do you mean the area above beehive with the skinny orange runoff channel?
14:32:27 <Kent> I know Plume. This is the large orange spot center right.
14:32:55 <ynpvisitor6> ok, I think they called it ?Green Dragon
14:33:42 <ynpvisitor6> gee, Korben is on here, he ought to know
14:33:56 <KorbenC> huh, what? What is the question?
14:34:24 <ynpvisitor6> Kent wanted to know the name of the feature mid right on the cam
14:34:33 <ynpvisitor6> so between bee and pump
14:34:47 <Kent> I can't find it in TSB4. I go see if I can dig Nomenclature out of the basement
14:34:49 <KorbenC> The one with that small runoff chanell?
14:34:56 <KorbenC> is called Dragon
14:34:59 <Kent> Yes, between BH & Pump
14:36:05 <Kent> I found Dragon. Thanks
14:36:17 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
14:36:40 <Lori S> Green Dragon is at Norris
14:36:49 <ynpvisitor6> thanks
14:36:59 <Lori S> and is not, as far as I know, yet a geyser
14:37:07 <ynpvisitor6> I couldn't remember if it was just Dragon or Green Dragon
14:37:22 <ynpvisitor6> I believe it is a spring
14:37:52 <ynpvisitor6> back to chores
14:38:11 <LindaG> Bee spalshes
14:47:30 <Lori S> Second email to the governor just sent.
14:48:43 <Jake> huh, I thought it was Green Dragon, too
14:49:36 <Kent> The entry in Nomenclature on "Dragon" is excellent as you would expect.
14:51:24 <Craig M> Hey all
14:51:30 <JarnoO> afternoon Craig
14:51:35 <KorbenC> Hi Craig
14:52:05 <Craig M> I guess space will have to wait until saturday
14:52:25 <Dave from B™> Just watch a good space movie tonight
14:52:43 <Craig M> Interstellar is always a good choice
14:56:35 <ynpvisitor52> LoriS, sent saying DO NOT OPEN?
14:57:09 <Dave from B™> Have a great evening everyone! I'm off to sweat.
14:57:19 <JarnoO> cya Dave
14:57:31 <KorbenC> Bye Dave
14:59:55 <Lori S> bye Dve
15:00:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Temp hit 111° just now.
15:00:21 <Lori S> ynpvisitor52, I simply reported what I observed around town today.
15:00:33 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, ohhh toasty!
15:02:19 <ynpvisitor52> that is toasty Kevin
15:02:36 <Betty> Kevin is a toast?
15:02:41 <Lori S> Hi Betty
15:02:44 <Betty> afternoon all
15:02:53 <JarnoO> evening Betty
15:03:04 <Betty> evening JarnoO, hi Lori S
15:03:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 74° inside and I haven't turned on the AC yet.
15:04:06 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, that's a good temp with no air on
15:04:13 <Betty> seems I was a good sacrifice for BH yesterday, it went shortly after I left
15:04:16 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, Oh my. I'd be down to my undies at 74. LOL
15:04:33 <Betty> hi LindaG, Kevin L™ 🌵(toast)
15:04:50 <LindaG> Betty, hi, you were the sacrifice the day before for aurum too
15:04:52 <KorbenC> Lori S, are you getting my messages?
15:04:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do have swamps running.
15:05:08 <Betty> I know it...
15:05:14 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, what is that?
15:05:26 <Betty> hi KorbenC
15:05:31 <LindaG> Betty, 😥
15:05:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Evaporitave cooling.
15:06:02 <Lori S> KorbenC, yes
15:06:02 <LindaG> 👍
15:07:38 <Craig M> i see we had a few <2 hour daisys yesterday!
15:08:00 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
15:17:09 <JarnoO> Turban
15:17:50 <ynpvisitor118> Any late word on if MT will allow opening YNP entrances June 1st?
15:18:32 <Katie> no official word - that will come from Park Service. Montana's 14 day quarantine for those entering state is no longer in effect come June 1.

15:29:02 <LindaG> Yup caught on replay, real nice
15:33:42 <ynpvisitor84> aurum 1520 nice catch camop!
15:46:32 <JarnoO> OF
15:56:41 <JarnoO> Daisy
15:56:45 <KorbenC> Daisy
15:57:00 <JarnoO> 2h interva
15:57:01 <JarnoO> l
15:58:14 <Craig M> how short do intervals have to be for the possibility of something splendid happening again?
15:59:41 <JarnoO> 1h40m to 2h or so (when Splendid was active in the late 90s, that is)
16:00:39 <Betty> Grand ie
16:00:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released.
16:01:28 <JarnoO> so far they've been 1h50m to 2h20m with every so often an excursion to longer ones, so don't think we'll have even a slight chance of seeing it until Daisy consistently lowered to 1h40m-2h at minimum consistently for multiple days-weeks
16:01:38 <Jake> the thing left of Daisy is Comet Geyser? I see water over the trees sometimes
16:01:43 <KorbenC> Hey Graham
16:02:05 <JarnoO> Comet and Splendid are there, but I think you
16:02:10 <JarnoO> 're seeing Comet
16:02:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe its Brilliant Pool erupting?
16:02:14 <JarnoO> darn enter key
16:02:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello .. ooh Grand greets me
16:02:39 <JarnoO> wouldn't Brilliant stop Daisy from erupting?
16:02:43 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
16:03:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> I wonder where Suzanne and Heinrick are :)
16:03:21 <KorbenC> Grand started at 1556 right before we zooomed in on daisy
16:03:29 <JarnoO> probably trapped at Steamboat :)
16:03:36 <Betty> h at the end, not k :-)
16:03:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> the only time i have seen it erupting was 1997, after splendid was active, if the water level dropped enough the Brilliant would erupt. reverse of most geysers which want more water
16:04:26 <Craig M> i guess the lower water could reduce vapor pressure
16:06:42 <JarnoO> b1 done
16:06:49 <JarnoO> 2nd unlikely
16:07:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> no launch huh? so sad
16:07:35 <Craig M> bulger
16:08:20 <ynpvisitor103> hk can make it back for tonight’s Grand
16:08:51 <KorbenC> that is if SB does not request ransom to release them from Norris Captivity
16:08:58 <JarnoO> last advisory on Bertha by NHC. Forecast track says it'll head for the Great Lakes
16:09:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, he will be asleep and ready to head back to SB tomorrow if it hasnt gone
16:09:16 <Craig M> oh perfect. more rain for me then
16:09:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> anthing out of Bee yet?
16:09:34 <JarnoO> nothing that I'm aware of, Graham

16:10:09 <Craig M> Oh perfect. it'll miss me
16:10:17 <KorbenC> Haha Karno
16:10:22 <KorbenC> Jarmo
16:10:25 <Craig M> oddly enough i knew exactly what that message said
16:10:26 <KorbenC> I quit
16:10:41 <KorbenC> Craig M, lucky
16:11:18 <Betty> doggie
16:12:09 <KorbenC> sadly for Dragon, it looks like ther will not be good launch weather for quite a long time
16:12:52 <Betty> grass is greener at Lower Hams :-)
16:12:59 <JarnoO> wash

16:14:29 <Betty> where is the deer?
16:14:37 <KorbenC> maybe if I inject myself with UV light and drink Chlorine my tpying issues will be cured :P
16:15:32 <Betty> for sure KorbenC, but unfortunately you will be dead then
16:15:40 <JarnoO> you'll be typing too much covfefe then, Korben, so I advise you not to :)
16:15:55 <KorbenC> ;)
16:16:12 <KorbenC> Hi Lomfs
16:16:18 <KorbenC> Lina*
16:16:23 <KorbenC> Linda*
16:16:36 <KorbenC> Oh My God! What is wrong with me
16:16:53 <Betty> maybe you just need sleep?
16:16:56 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi rokneb

16:17:53 <Betty> minor
16:18:15 <Craig M> might have an OT soon possibly
16:21:13 <JarnoO> this would've been a nail-biting one I think: 10/22/1995 Giant hot period 7 vents plus Turtle & Mastiff; overnight
16:21:27 <JarnoO> is that Rocket?
16:21:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe
16:22:18 <JarnoO> could you zoom on it?
16:22:45 <Jake> a Rocket maybejor
16:22:55 <JarnoO> thanks :)
16:23:13 <Jeff> never seen rocket so idk lol
16:23:17 <JarnoO> steam isn't helping much
16:23:52 <JarnoO> two columns now, so must be Rocket
16:26:47 <Craig M> that was fun :)
16:28:07 <Jeff> id love to be in yellowstone just for the cooler weather right now lol
16:28:36 <Craig M> bulger
16:30:56 <Betty> I call it a day, bye all
16:31:01 <JarnoO> cya Betty

16:31:49 <LindaG> Betty, bye
16:31:57 <LindaG> Jeff, hi
16:32:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> no travel plans Jeff?
16:38:58 <JarnoO> I'm off as well. Enjoy the Anemones
16:46:16 <LindaG> Who broke it? Fess up
16:46:37 <LindaG> Fixed
16:59:17 <Craig M> OT
16:59:40 <Craig M> +bulger
17:00:33 <Craig M> can we get a churn?
17:03:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> short OT eruption
17:18:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> nobody reminded me .. sorry was distracted
17:46:45 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin?
17:46:51 <KorbenC> How are you feeling today?
17:49:13 <KorbenC> Bulge
17:49:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe a major finally
17:51:13 <KevinS> KorbenC, chemo day. So starting tomorrow it will downhil for me
17:54:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh
17:58:25 <ynpvisitor118> :daisy
17:59:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now I know why the launch was scrubbed. There is a Nascar Cup race in North Carolina which is in the clear weather area for the launch. Of course the weather is stormy.
18:01:59 <ynpvisitor118> Perfect weather for a :sb: launch (which probably means it'll go in middle of night)
18:03:12 <ynpvisitor118> Now well past 4 days on :sb: , no short interval records broken this time
18:09:15 <KorbenC> SB Note on GT
18:09:45 <KorbenC> connect
18:09:54 <KorbenC> I did nto know BSB had Majors?
18:10:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> nust have typed Bu instead of Bul
18:11:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> too bad on SB. Maybe Suzanne and Heinrick will stay till dark
18:25:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> Artie?
18:25:22 <KevinS> SB 8:00am on the 29th. +/- 12 hours
18:25:39 <KorbenC> GO STEAMBOAT, yup
18:28:05 <KorbenC> Castle
18:28:36 <KorbenC> I am gonna say 28th at 2207 :)
18:31:36 <KorbenC> and for hte other way, May 29th at 0824
18:35:26 <ynpvisitor44> Sounds like SB could be iin “I do what I want when I want mode.. No warning”
18:35:36 <ynpvisitor44> Mode
18:36:13 <Craig M> darkness and foul weather are the only known indicators ;)
18:36:49 <ynpvisitor44> Nice Castle viewing!
18:37:24 <KevinS> Craig M, :thumbsup:
18:53:00 <Lindag> Hi all!
18:53:07 <Craig M> hello!
18:53:26 <Lindag> 😊
18:54:11 <KorbenC> Hi Linda, and bye Linda :)
18:55:12 <Lindag> OF
18:56:03 <Lindag> Steamboat tonight?
18:57:36 <KevinS> I think more likely tomorrow night. My prediction is 8:00 on the 29th.
18:57:49 <Lindag> KevinS, 👍
18:58:08 <KevinS> staking out a =/- 12 hours on it too
18:58:36 <KevinS> +/-
18:58:42 <Lindag> I'll go with 04:00 28th
18:59:00 <Lindag> Wild guess as usual
18:59:20 <KevinS> One thing for sure is my time will be wrong. Unless it's not.
18:59:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> now would be a good time
18:59:36 <Lindag> KevinS, 😁
18:59:52 <Lindag> GO STEAMBOAT, sure would
19:00:20 <KevinS> Castle has be giving some good pics
19:00:44 <KevinS> has to be*
19:01:00 <Lindag> Looks nice
19:01:35 <Lindag> KevinS, did you make reservations for this year?
19:02:02 <KevinS> July 17-24
19:02:24 <Lindag> KevinS, nice, camping?
19:02:39 <KevinS> Madison with option to claim a Norris
19:03:16 <KevinS> If the boat is in play I will FCFS relocate to Norris
19:03:44 <Lindag> Great. I snagged cabins at roosevelt and OFL for next year, June into July
19:04:35 <KevinS> If YNP is too risky, I may opt for southern Utah instead
19:05:05 <Lindag> KevinS, that's a nice trip too!
19:05:43 <KevinS> I just want a nice trip before surgery. Being greedy, but that motivates me.
19:06:32 <Lindag> KevinS, you deserve it. Not greedy. Something to look forward to.
19:09:33 <Lindag> Oh I guess no beehive yet
19:14:47 <Craig M> old tardy wants to start
19:16:18 <KorbenC> Linda, what are your dates next year
19:16:27 <KorbenC> for OFL
19:16:54 <Lindag> KorbenC, June 30- July 7 checkout
19:17:18 <Lindag> KorbenC, oh july3rd-7th for OFL
19:17:20 <KorbenC> I will take that into consideration when booking my things for next year on June 1st
19:17:37 <Lindag> KorbenC, 😊
19:17:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> arent they sold out?
19:18:03 <Lindag> GO STEAMBOAT, lol
19:18:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> Craig is probably booking them all so theres nothing left for Korben
19:18:54 <Lindag> 😁
19:19:01 <KorbenC> GO STEAMBOAT, I bet I will not get a cabin at OFL, or Snow Lodge for Next Summer :(
19:19:07 <KevinS> It was either that or get a boat
19:19:25 <KorbenC> Which would mean instead of a weak, or two. It will be only a few days at Snowlodge rooms vs. Cabins
19:19:48 <KorbenC> Hi Craig :)
19:20:02 <CraigC> I have no intentions of staying in cabins or lodges or rooms inside the park
19:20:14 <CraigC> only Madison CG
19:20:29 <Lindag> KorbenC, I havent had a good record of actually make it there the last year or two, but if we should be there at same time, it would be fun to meet
19:20:45 <KevinS> CraigC, why not? that may me more vaulable stock than amazon?
19:20:48 <CraigC> I just popped in to check YNM, and saw my name
19:20:51 <Lindag> *making it there
19:20:53 <KorbenC> It most definitely would Linda
19:21:21 <CraigC> hasta banana
19:21:26 <KorbenC> We will book whatever is availabe, but if we can get that July area after/during the 4th, that would be great!
19:22:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i expect there wil be cabins available
19:22:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> just get on early
19:22:25 <KevinS> CraigC, Did you see my plan? July 17-24. If the boat is looking good, I will FCFS to Norris and bail on my Madison reservation
19:22:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> and be flexible about dates
19:22:48 <KorbenC> we are willing to book anywhere from June 1st, to July 30th :)
19:23:00 <KorbenC> as long as it is for a week(cabins anyway)
19:23:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats pretty much what i booked
19:23:30 <KorbenC> what are your dates?
19:23:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> mem day thru 4th july and Sept
19:24:17 <KorbenC> wel, if I get booking for next year I am almost guranteed to meet at least one of you then.
19:25:32 <Lindag> GO STEAMBOAT, you were able to book a whole month?
19:25:40 <Lindag> More actually
19:26:17 <KorbenC> Well, in 5 days I will know the fate of my YNP Trips next summer :D
19:27:01 <Lindag> KorbenC, I find that you should always keep looking. People cancel all the time

19:41:53 <Lindag> Not sure
19:44:40 <Lindag> KorbenC, if I try to book I get errors also
