02:38:11 <ynpvisitor117> I was hoping the night cam was color tonight
04:57:45 <ynpvisitor102> morning, Joe
04:58:05 <ynpvisitor102> good cam work overnight
05:33:38 <JarnoO> morning all
05:39:40 <JarnoO> nice sunrise
05:42:30 <Ryan> Morning, JArnoO
05:50:15 <JarnoO> morning Ryan
05:52:55 <Ryan> is sore
05:53:16 <Ryan> We really gave it heck last night in the cave. I asm beat up today
05:56:53 <JarnoO> was it worth it?
05:58:35 <JarnoO> Joe, your 0432 ns wc Grotto of yesterday quit around 0238 today, which makes for a duration of ±22h06m
05:59:38 <Ryan> Yes. There are three leads in the cave, we killed one. The other two continue. One we are digging dirt and mud out of it. The other we will need to dig with some chemical reinforcements I think.
06:00:25 <Ryan> It is *almost* passable. There are some rock ledges that stick out. I tried to remove them with a sledgehammer but just didnt have the room to swing it hard enough.
06:01:10 <JarnoO> sounds like you'll be having some fun this summer :)
06:01:47 <Ryan>
06:02:00 <Ryan>
06:02:13 <Ryan> Some parts of the cave are really nice
06:02:33 <Ryan>
06:02:36 <JarnoO> that formation almost looks like a jaw of some sorts
06:02:41 <Ryan> And some parts....
06:03:03 <ynpvisitor30> Morning, screenprint of sunrise
06:03:30 <JarnoO> I'll pass for that part of the cave, Ryan :P
06:04:17 <JarnoO> morning Linda, Kent
06:04:52 <Ryan> Yeah, thankfully thats the back parts.
06:04:54 <Kent> Ryan, was cavers wearibng masks to protect the bats a joke?
06:05:07 <Ryan> If anything is beyond that crap we have some serious trips ahead of us.
06:05:12 <Ryan> No, Kent, it wasn't.
06:05:49 <Kent> good. I have reepeated it as truth. Thans
06:05:52 <Ryan> A cave bat researcher recently uploaded an article about why bats cant get COVID from humans. Shes a microbiologist. I'll have to find her article.
06:06:45 <LindaG> JarnoO, morning
06:07:06 <LindaG>
06:07:52 <ynpvisitor102> I missed the OF start, hopefully someone got it and will enter it
06:07:57 <Kent> When you furs posted i thought it was funny and then I got to thinking that it might be true.
06:08:39 <Ryan> Yeah no I am serious. Most people I know are not wearing them.
06:09:10 <Ryan> And as it stands, if I need a mask in Grable Cave to get through this:
06:09:13 <Ryan> It aint happening.
06:09:22 <Ryan> Mask, or me, but we cant both fit haha
06:10:14 <Kent> Does not look comfortable
06:10:38 <Ryan> Not particularly.
06:17:22 <JarnoO> that's a pretty screenshot you took, Linda. If it weren't for the usual blurriness it would look like a painting :)
06:18:08 <LindaG> JarnoO, I like the reflection in the river
06:30:34 <JarnoO> LC ie
06:50:09 <Ryan> Redoing my Steamboat Analysis in Excel. Getting ready for a Sput article.
06:52:59 <Ryan> Beautiful light this morning!
07:01:39 <ynpvisitor102> morning, Kat, Daisy up, Riverside also
07:07:55 <JarnoO> Daisy
07:15:30 <ynpvisitor71> LC
07:16:37 <ynpvisitor71> no
07:17:23 <ynpvisitor71> Bulger
07:20:06 <ynpvisitor71> riverside
07:22:53 <ynpvisitor71> nope
07:23:45 <ynpvisitor71> Sun coming over the hills
07:28:21 <JarnoO> AB
07:29:44 <ynpvisitor106> is dome watering?
07:30:49 <ynpvisitor71> ynpvisitor106, looks like syeam
07:30:56 <ynpvisitor71> steam*
07:32:16 <ynpvisitor71> LC
07:32:30 <JarnoO> LC ie
07:33:26 <Ryan> Wow. Norris had a hell of a storm yesterday
07:44:48 <ynpvisitor71> Riverside went at 0734 - per RMichaels
07:46:54 <ynpvisitor71> :):)
08:06:15 <Ryan>
08:06:17 <Ryan> @JarnoO
08:11:03 <JarnoO> so frequency is still way above the 1980s and even 1960s active phases. Nice!
08:11:46 <Ryan> Do you see the spikes?
08:12:05 <Ryan> Each phase had two roughly the same time apart.
08:12:57 <JarnoO> do you reckon this phase will have a third spike?
08:13:02 <Ryan> It's a quasi-fourier transform. The spikes are most obvious with a 6mo span, they start to appear roughly around 3-4mo and are gone around 7
08:13:45 <Ryan> It looks like its building into one for sure.
08:14:20 <ynpvisitor71> :p
08:14:22 <Ryan> I am wondering though if those spikes are seasonal. The 2018-2020 ones sure are, and the 1980s and 1960s are vaguely seasonal as well - so it could just be that there is a spike roughly every summer.
08:15:33 <Ryan> The 1960s trough corresponds to a winter season, which means its possible there are missing eruptions there. The 1980s had a spike even though it was decreasing in intensity...
08:15:58 <Ryan> It is very interesting. Its a common pattern through all three active series now.
08:17:12 <KorbenC> morning everyone
08:17:29 <JarnoO> morning Korben. You're late :)
08:17:48 <Ryan> If anything it gives much more credence to the already fairly accepted thought that SB is seasonal in intensity.
08:17:50 <KorbenC> Morning Jarno :)
08:17:56 <Ryan> Morning, KC.
08:18:18 <KorbenC> Hi Ryan, how was caving
08:18:39 <Ryan>
08:18:52 <Ryan> But also:
08:19:40 <KorbenC> are both of those you?
08:19:55 <Ryan> Yup
08:20:06 <KorbenC> wow!
08:20:12 <Ryan> I was the only person who would volunteer to sit in the passage that long. Actually, I am the only one this time who could fit.
08:20:14 <KorbenC> Did you find your big room on the other side?
08:20:31 <Ryan> No, but we are getting there. Cave was howling air yesterday.
08:20:31 <ynpvisitor82> Do you also enjoy hittinbg your thumb with a 32oz wafflefaced hammer Ryan?
08:20:32 <ynpvisitor71> :p
08:21:19 <Ryan> 87°F when we went in AND a storm front passing through. Combine the thermal effect with the massive baro drop outside and the cave was making leaves move 10ft away from the entrance.
08:21:32 <KorbenC> weather for my YNP trip is gonna be perfect! Snow on monday, then gradually increasing temps the rest of the week :D
08:21:34 <Ryan> 82, I try not to, but I have a couple of times :D
08:23:45 <Ryan> I had to hammer than passage a bit to make it passable. Lots of grabby ledges. The mud on my face comes from trying to move with my arms in front of me.
08:24:31 <Ryan> Super frustrating. The one passage visibly opens up in another 15ft but damn if I could get through. Not enough room to swing the hammer enough to break the rocks off.
08:24:35 <KorbenC (T-3)> if you dont mind me asking, how did you get the camera in front of you to take a picture?
08:24:49 <Ryan> I think we are returning with chemical reinforcements.
08:25:15 <Ryan> Someone tripped the camera for me. I was coming back out of the crawl. It was staged, but most wouldnt know that.
08:25:23 <JarnoO> would Kevin L be of any expertise, Ryan? :D
08:25:24 <ynpvisitor20> chemical?
08:25:46 <Ryan> JarnoO, I need to move a fist sized rock, not the entire mountain.
08:26:00 <JarnoO> haha
08:26:14 <KorbenC (T-3)> lmao
08:26:25 <Ryan> 20, yes, probably in the form of rifle powder. Though, sometimes just driolling holes and sdmacking it again gets it to go.
08:27:06 <Ryan> Those crawls exit into a dome, which is the only spot in the entire 500ft of cave you can stand up
08:27:08 <KorbenC (T-3)> which do you prefer for your reinforcments, Nitric Acid, Sulfuric Acid, Hydrofuoric Acit, Hydrogen Cyanic, ect...
08:27:41 <Ryan> FFFF rifle propellant works fairly well. We prefer things that wont kill us purely by existing.
08:27:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> ;)
08:28:17 <Ryan> Also if anyone is interested, I have some of the photos from the flight on Sunday of my home county.
08:28:24 <Ryan> Thats Perryopolis, where I grew up.
08:28:36 <JarnoO> couldn't you slam the hammer with the top into the rock, rather than using a swinging motion like you usually do with hammers?
08:28:56 <ynpvisitor82> This is what you need Ryan:
08:29:04 <Ryan> Thats Chestnut Ridge, were almost every cave in Fayette County is.
08:29:19 <Ryan> JarnoO, whatever you do you need to be able to do it in a tube 16 inches wide and 10 inches tall.
08:29:49 <Ryan> 82, I dont have one but several friends do, many prefer the Hilty.
08:31:23 <KorbenC (T-3)> how do you fit in a hole that tiny? I am 95 lbs and I could fit through those holes!
08:32:55 <ynpvisitor17> caving is one of the sporting activities where being smaller is better
08:33:46 <Ryan> Eh, you'd be surprised what a body will fit through.
08:34:33 <Ryan> We actually have these contests with Squeeze Boxes where we see what we can realistically fit through. Its usually 3ft wide and polished wood boards roughly 4ft long.
08:34:40 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ryan, if you ever come to CO you should get a permit to cave up at Cave of the winds, there is a very tiny hole (smaller than that one) that noone have ever been through, and when you shine a light down it it keep going for a long ways :0
08:34:54 <Ryan> My personal record is 7.7 inches sober and 7.35 inches not-sober.
08:35:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> rofl
08:35:37 <Ryan> Realistically, my record in cave is 7.8 inches. All instances involved bruises and a complete lack of ability to inhale.
08:35:58 <Ryan> You get used to it after a while...
08:38:52 <JarnoO> Bulger
08:40:31 <KorbenC (T-3)> OT
08:44:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> There Rare Detached Mammatus Clouds at my house last evening,
08:44:40 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ooops, wrong chat :)
08:44:59 <Chancellor> Looks like a nice morning to be on the UGB
08:46:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> and the reason I was o so late this morning, came upstairs, lied down with the puppers.
08:53:19 <JarnoO> aww
08:53:26 <KorbenC (T-3)> Next Grand 0920
08:53:33 <KorbenC (T-3)> Bison in front of Grand
08:53:53 <KorbenC (T-3)> Jarno, what?
08:54:21 <JarnoO> the puppers
08:54:57 <KorbenC (T-3)> if you think that is cute then I have to find the picture of them together :) give me a minute
08:57:00 <KorbenC (T-3)>
08:58:12 <JarnoO> the sheperd especially looks cute
08:58:43 <KorbenC (T-3)> exactly why Aspen (shepherd) is my favorite
08:59:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> The Other One is really just annoying and fat, lol.
08:59:36 <Ryan> I dont have a favorite pet (its totally the ball python and Sierra the golden retriever)
09:00:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ryan, thats ike saying you dont have a favorite gyeser :p
09:00:24 <ynpvisitor82> I know which one of those three I would like best.
09:00:46 <Ryan> It's totally Fan and Mortar. Best geyser in the world.
09:00:53 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ryan, what is the name of your "translucent" snake?
09:00:56 <Ryan> Anyone who disgrees is a stupid-head.
09:00:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> as in like, what kind of snake is it
09:01:00 <Ryan> Narcissus
09:01:09 <Ryan> Oh, corn snake.
09:01:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ryan, Beehive is the best geyser! Not F&M.
09:01:23 <Ryan> The ball python got named Vadose.
09:01:41 <ynpvisitor82> I kind of like any one that is erupting at the time.
09:01:52 <Ryan> Well, KC, that's because you're a stupid-head. Someday all will see the light of pure goodness and salvation that is the pile of pebbles.
09:02:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> I have seen F&M "D
09:02:50 <Ryan> Other through the rockpile can one achieve true Gazing Nirvana and reach a state of heightened curmudgeoness.
09:03:01 <KorbenC (T-3)> anyone who does not think Beehive is the best geyser will never get to see F&M again, nevermore, nevermore, nevermoe :)
09:03:51 <Ryan> One leaves behind such petty and empty phrases as "It does that." and moves beyond to deeper, more meaningful, phrases such as "That's nice."
09:03:54 <KorbenC (T-3)> Gazing Nirvana happens when you are lying on the Beehive bench getting a Beehive shower :)
09:04:17 <KorbenC (T-3)> and I thought I was weird, lol.
09:04:45 <Ryan (lunch)> Actually, in my personal experience I have felt a sense of spiritual calm and peace only three times and two of those were at a geyser.
09:05:03 <Ryan (lunch)> F&M and Steamboat. The third was on rope in Valhalla.
09:05:10 <KorbenC (T-3)> So. Beehive seems to have stablized for hte past 3 eruptions erupted around 1530 (I know now that I am saying this it will erupt at 2153 or something)....
09:05:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am gonna say Beehive at 1515
09:06:00 <KorbenC (T-3)> 1527 actually +/- 2 hours
09:06:26 <Ryan (lunch)> PArting comment: To those who scoff at talks of feelings like spiritual calm and peace at geysers - or who think I was being serious that every one was a stupid-head - lighten up tad. :)
09:07:25 <ynpvisitor71> :p
09:07:39 <KorbenC (T-3)> Cya Ryan, enjoy Lunch, Stupid Head! :p
09:07:59 <ynpvisitor71> hahaha
09:08:24 <KorbenC (T-3)> also Ryan, I am 95 lbs, I need to gain weight, not lighten up :)

09:56:24 <Eric> Hi JArno & Linda
09:57:06 <Jeff> hey eric
09:57:41 <Eric> You guys see the landslide video from Norway?
09:57:46 <Eric> That is nuts
09:57:48 <KorbenC (T-3)> hI eRIC, AND lINDA
09:57:49 <Eric> Hi Jeff
09:58:46 <KorbenC (T-3)> Eric, wow!
09:58:50 <LindaG> Eric, wow hopefully people weren't in those houses
09:58:58 <ynpvisitor71> LC
09:59:04 <Eric> I don't think anyone was injured
09:59:30 <JarnoO> no victims as far as I know. Those houses were holiday homes and weren't in use at the time
10:00:22 <Ryan (lunch)> Thats oddly mesmerizing
10:00:38 <Eric> Yes it is Ryan
10:00:49 <Eric> Just slow motion removal of the coast.
10:00:51 <KorbenC (T-3)> wb Ryan
10:01:15 <ynpvisitor82> Not only do you lose your house, you lose your lot.
10:02:03 <Eric> Weird watching houses bob in the ocean
10:02:31 <Forestbewithyou> whats up my peeps
10:02:36 <Eric> Hi Forest
10:02:42 <LindaGp> Forestbewithyou, hi
10:02:42 <Forestbewithyou> hi
10:02:46 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hey Forest
10:02:59 <Forestbewithyou> hola
10:03:03 <Jeff> hi forest
10:03:04 <Eric> It reminds me of tsunami, but in reverse.
10:03:16 <KorbenC (T-3)> Eric, that is what I was thinking
10:03:46 <Ryan> To a stationary point on the groupnd that is sliding, it IS a tsunami ;)
10:04:40 <Eric> Dirst tsunami :-P
10:04:42 <Eric> Dirt
10:05:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> PUMP!
10:05:58 <Jeff> or a shot of whiskey
10:06:03 <Eric> You never have too much Sriracha :-P
10:06:29 <Eric> I put that **** on everything!
10:06:38 <Ryan> Ironically I cant stand spicy stuff.
10:06:47 <KorbenC (T-3)> now I know what to give Eric in YNP :)
10:06:59 <Eric> taste or stomach issues Ryan?
10:07:11 <Ryan> Both
10:07:17 <Eric> like do you hate black pepper?
10:07:26 <KorbenC (T-3)> I just cant eat anything spicy :p
10:07:26 <Ryan> No I like black pepper.
10:07:29 <Eric> It's technically spicy
10:07:32 <KorbenC (T-3)> I think stir fry is spicy, lol.
10:07:42 <Ryan> Beyond a certain level of spice it just tastes like pain for me :.
10:07:48 <Eric> stir fry can be anything you make it Coop
10:07:56 <Jeff> i have a love hate relationship with spicy foods
10:07:57 <Eric> Oh, I don't like it painful
10:08:08 <KorbenC (T-3)> yeah, I like spicy food, but without hte spicy :)
10:08:27 <Ryan> My threshold for losing taste is pretty low.
10:08:33 <Eric> But I love peppers...the concentrated stuff that just tries to bring heat is silly IMHO
10:08:51 <Ryan> I do like peppers in small amounts.
10:08:51 <Jeff> ill eat habanero peppers like candy
10:09:00 <Eric> But peppers and vinegars are awesome to my taste buds
10:09:19 <Ryan> Most of those vegetables I love the taste but hate their texture.
10:09:23 <Eric> I like all kinds of vinegars, sweet, hot, savory.
10:09:33 <Ryan> Frequently if I consume them they are diced and well cooked
10:09:52 <ynpvisitor50> Bear spray makes the food at the grill taste better.
10:10:05 <Eric> couldn't hurt 50 :-P
10:10:09 <KorbenC (T-3)> llol, I think anything can make it better :)
10:10:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> just not their fries, I love their fries.
10:10:47 <Eric> I still remember someone opening their sandwich from Lower Hams that they had bought that morning to have for lunch out in the basin....had boat loads of mold growing on it.
10:11:00 <Eric> So gross!
10:11:46 <ynpvisitor50> Not mold, those are micro greens.
10:11:49 <Jeff> when did that happen?
10:11:52 <Eric> I don't think they make those sandwiches there, but still super yuck.
10:12:18 <Eric> 2 years ago Jeff...they took it back down there after, but it ruined their lunch.
10:12:40 <Jeff> yea we dont make them. theyre prepackaged when they get to the store
10:12:46 <Jeff> yea that would ruin my lunch too
10:13:11 <Eric> Yep...I only eat the food cooked in front of me at the counter :-P
10:13:48 <Jeff> yea i wont buy the prepackaged stuff lol only the stuff cooked at the fountain lol
10:14:08 <Eric> But still WAY better than anything the Lodge cooks! I question if some of that is actually food sometimes.
10:14:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> F&M EVENT CYCLE
10:14:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> !
10:14:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> !
10:14:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> !
10:14:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> !
10:14:31 <Eric> $10 for a pile of ????
10:14:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> Wow, I got excited :)
10:15:00 <Eric> Nice, I didn't see that.
10:15:05 <Jeff> oh we get people all the time that would come in on their last day in the park staying at the hotels and would say our food is 100 times better than the hotels food
10:15:08 <Eric> 3 hours ago Coop
10:15:28 <Eric> Well, snowlodge makes pretty good food.
10:15:38 <KorbenC (T-3)> sounds like it was an OK one too me :)
10:15:43 <Eric> The Inn dining room isn't bad either.
10:15:53 <KorbenC (T-3)> Obsidian Grill has the best breakfast buffett
10:16:07 <Jeff> honestly the only thing ive ever eaten at the inn was the wings at the bear pit
10:16:12 <Eric> The only breakfast buffet Coop :-P
10:16:13 <Ryan> Sounds mediocre based purely on what he wrote
10:16:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> yeah, but it is alive!
10:17:06 <Jeff> hopefully i can see it when i get there
10:17:24 <Eric> Thats not a bad cycle!
10:17:48 <Ryan> Wake me up when the river drops a bit and Main Vent doesnt send water out of the cone
10:18:21 <KorbenC (T-3)> IDK much if anything about F&M, I just listen for the calls, and gauge the level of it based on theirexcitment
10:18:26 <Eric> Snob :-P
10:18:57 <Ryan> You misspelled "Level 5 Geyser Gazer Guru"
10:19:03 <Eric> hahahaha
10:19:19 <KorbenC (T-3)> haha
10:19:32 <Jeff> a lot of times i base things on the tone of the persons voice lol
10:19:55 <KorbenC (T-3)> Like Ryans, "OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD. GIANT 1313 GIANT 1313" :p
10:20:02 <Ryan> It doesnt sound bad. But heavy splashing in Main Vent that late is not (usually) a good thing. And the breif encouraging water levels is normal for 20min after River comes back on
10:20:44 <Jeff> i remember back in 18 micah yelled into the radio "F&M 1202 IE, F&M 1202 IE"
10:21:03 <Ryan> Actually, Main Vent Booms (as Will called them) were never something he liked to see. I dont think Polly liked them either.
10:21:09 <Eric> I just like that someone reported something that wasn't just junk. That at least sounds like it is moderately organized.
10:21:24 <Ryan> Oh it sounds very organized for sure.
10:23:12 <Ryan> But you know how it goes, when its not junk then you want organization, when you get organization then you want energy, when you get energy you want the lock, when you get the lock you want an eruption, then when you get the eruption you want it bigger, in different wind conditions, or backlit with rainbows that defy how light physics work.
10:23:14 <KorbenC (T-3)> Ryan, would you sent a txt if F&M went on cam?
10:23:24 <Ryan> Yes
10:23:54 <Ryan> Before anyone gives me grief, we got all caps MASTIFF and GIANT texts for steam plumes :)
10:24:19 <Jeff> thats a decent line at west entrance
10:30:10 <KorbenC (T-3)> Aloha Linda
10:30:18 <Eric> I would send that txt too if I could confirm F&M erupting!
10:30:31 <LindaGp1> KorbenC (T-3), hi
10:34:38 <KorbenC (T-3)> If it werent for COVID I would be sitting at Aurum, and starting to head to daisy
10:35:30 <Jeff> idk whered id be
10:36:00 <KorbenC (T-3)> actually I might be buying a sanwich from Lower Hams.
10:36:06 <Eric> You would be sitting at lower hams Jeff
10:36:12 <Eric> talking to customers
10:36:35 <Jeff> probably
10:40:10 <Jeff> me and william are planning on doing what were calling thermal thursdays this year
10:40:40 <Jeff> so im gonna try and get thursdays and fridays off
10:43:34 <KorbenC (T-3)> beach
10:44:53 <JarnoO> interesting Pinwheel note
10:55:07 <Eric> We have reports on 4 basins this morning!
10:55:15 <Eric> UGB, LGB, Norris and Biscuit!
10:55:33 <Eric> Must be summer!
10:55:53 <LindaGp1> 😊
10:58:28 <KorbenC (T-3)> There are also tilts bay empty notes
11:01:22 <ynpvisitor89> The minnow has landed
11:01:49 <KorbenC (T-3)> yes it has
11:01:51 <KorbenC (T-3)> Dave at Jet
11:02:11 <LindaGp1> OF
11:02:18 <ynpvisitor89> Dave is 89. At OFI parking lot
11:02:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> I wonder how long he is gonna be there for
11:03:06 <Ryan> The MINNOW hans LANDED
11:03:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> oh, nice!
11:03:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> How long oyu gonna be here for?
11:03:29 <ynpvisitor89> Have dogs. Quick walk around fountain. Great fountain not in overflow. Going to do GH loop returning via castle
11:04:14 <KorbenC (T-3)> Dave is not answering my question :)
11:04:52 <ynpvisitor89> An hour
11:05:07 <KorbenC (T-3)> you leaving back for Billings after today?
11:05:55 <ynpvisitor89> Home tomorrow.
11:06:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> nice
11:06:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> wave at us from Geyser Hill :)
11:06:35 <LindaGp1> Lion ie
11:06:36 <KorbenC (T-3)> Lion
11:07:35 <ynpvisitor111> hey Dave from CraigC
11:08:17 <Eric> Lion ini right now dave, so Lion in a hour
11:09:18 <Eric> BH is at almost 20h too, so you have 4-6 hours before it is going to go most likely
11:09:29 <LindaGp1> Daisy soon
11:09:47 <Eric> Enjoy the hill!
11:10:33 <LindaGp1> Inguess daisy interval has lengthened a little
11:15:03 <ynpvisitor3> Dave from B is in the park?
11:15:15 <Eric> He is at UGB
11:15:40 <Eric> Love when the otters are hanging out down by F&M!
11:15:46 <LindaGp1> Daisy
11:17:51 <Forestbewithyou> yay daisy
11:18:28 <ynpvisitor65> Does anybody know if the USGS Steamboat counter is going to be updated anymore?
11:19:43 <ynpvisitor3> By counter do you mean the logger?
11:20:06 <ynpvisitor3> It will come back eventually
11:20:06 <ynpvisitor65> No sorry, just the webpage.
11:22:37 <ynpvisitor65> I'm rooting for another record this year!:sb:
11:23:14 <ynpvisitor17> Steamboat counter isn't that the person that sits out a Steamboat 24/7 and counts eruptions?
11:23:57 <ynpvisitor20> Counting majors?
11:24:45 <Eric> I ran out of fingers a long time ago!
11:25:40 <ynpvisitor20> Dave didn't stop at Norris?
11:32:21 <ynpvisitor61> Grove ie 1132
11:33:19 <LindaGp1> Aurum
11:33:19 <LindaGp1> .
11:33:20 <LindaGp1> .
11:33:20 <LindaGp1> .
11:33:43 <LindaGp1> ynpvisitor61, Thx would have missed aurum ☺
11:36:44 <Eric> Hopefully Dave got it!
11:37:14 <Eric> But I didn't see him up there in the video :-(
11:37:56 <Eric> Maybe up there chatting with William now?
11:38:37 <KorbenC (T-3)> maybe we could zoom in an stalk him, lol
11:40:29 <ynpvisitor20> I thought he was going hiking, lol
11:43:14 <Eric> Not sure 20, he said this: 11:03:29 ‹ynpvisitor89› Have dogs. Quick walk around fountain. Great fountain not in overflow. Going to do GH loop returning via castle
11:43:42 <Eric> Probably can't leave the dogs in the minnow for too long.
11:44:11 <ynpvisitor20> Not with the dogs, I hope
11:44:25 <KorbenC (T-3)> good people, read the sign :)
11:44:55 <Eric> No :-D He wouldn't take dogs out to the BW
11:46:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> I think I am gonna spend a few hours at pump :)
11:46:47 <CraigC> Pump will like that
11:47:05 <LindaGp1> CraigC, hi
11:47:08 <ynpvisitor20> but what I meant was I thought they were hiking and wildlife watching
11:47:11 <CraigC> LindaGp1, howdy
11:47:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> 20, you cant go to YNP and not look at geysers, ;)
11:47:36 <LindaGp1> 🤠
11:48:46 <CraigC> it will take the rest of my life watching geysers to catch up with the trips I took for fly fishing
11:49:53 <ynpvisitor116> Have you seen any rim boils at Giantess now the camera ang
11:50:16 <ynpvisitor116> angle is higher?
11:50:47 <LindaGp1> ynpvisitor116, Yes, but not recently
11:51:18 <LindaGp1> ynpvisitor116, week or two ago
11:51:43 <LindaGp1> Uh just now
11:52:03 <LindaGp1> Little boil there
11:53:51 <ynpvisitor116> Nice to have another thing watch.
11:54:12 <CraigC> no Aurum for Dave :(
11:54:31 <LindaGp1> ynpvisitor116, it is love the blue pool
11:54:53 <LindaGp1> CraigC, bimmer
11:54:59 <LindaGp1> Or bummer
11:55:28 <CraigC> Inspector Clouseau; 'bimmer"
11:56:08 <LindaGp1> 😃
11:58:47 <LindaGp1> LC ie
12:06:14 <ynpvisitor3> Minnow is resuming its journey to lake for lunch. Have a great day everyone
12:06:39 <CraigC> cya Dave, enjoy
12:07:08 <ynpvisitor20> ynpvisitor3, unplug :D
12:07:17 <Benton Harbor> Take care Dave. Watch for deer
12:07:42 <ynpvisitor3> Haha. I am right now!
12:07:59 <Ryan> Miss the deer, aim for the bison.
12:08:15 <Benton Harbor> Bison are worse
12:09:04 <Ryan> Then why didnt you warn him? ;)
12:10:14 <Benton Harbor> Did you ever read the story of Paul Strasser hitting the bison?
12:10:30 <Ryan> Yes
12:10:39 <Ryan> Everytime I imagine hitting a bison I laugh now
12:10:51 <ynpvisitor20> Yes
12:11:27 <Benton Harbor> He had such a way with words. You would have loved him in the Basin.
12:12:32 <Ryan> I met him once. A long time ago. 2003
12:12:56 <Ryan> Did not know it was him until I saw him in a video of mine almost a decade later
12:14:16 <Benton Harbor> Met him the first year I was a Gazer. Great friendship. I really miss him.
12:14:50 <ynpvisitor116> He once said "There are Hill people and there are River people." (Beehive and Lion vs. Giant and F&M)
12:14:57 <LindaGp1> Lion
12:15:06 <CraigC> Benton Harbor, was that when you had to ride a train to get to the park?
12:16:19 <Benton Harbor> Union Pacific to West, Northern Pacific to Gardner.
12:19:12 <Benton Harbor> I wonder how hard it would be to bring track to West. Eastern Idaho goes to Ashton now. It would be a fun ride from Idaho Falls to West.
12:20:25 <LindaGp1> Bulger and OT ie
12:21:18 <CraigC> Benton Harbor, I know where the tracks are from Island Park to West, but from Ashton, did they go back by Mesa Falls?
12:22:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> Linda, bulger is a major
12:22:50 <Benton Harbor> I am not sure. I have a book on the Yellowstone Branch somewhere. I will have to look it up.
12:23:54 <CraigC> Benton Harbor, you might like this semi-fiction book;
12:24:09 <CraigC> also Madison River Country
12:25:54 <Benton Harbor> Looks interesting. Local histories are always fun.
12:29:49 <LindaGp1> CraigC, ever hear the name tom Gilmore regarding g fly fishing?
12:29:51 <CraigC> damn, sid died 4 years ago. One of my copies is signed by him
12:30:07 <CraigC> LindaGp1, no
12:30:28 <LindaGp1> Just someone I known that wrote some books on it
12:31:18 <CraigC> LindaGp1, just checked amazon, looks like he writes stuff for the eastern coast
12:31:45 <LindaGp1> Yes he was president of NJ audubon
12:33:09 <LindaGp1> CraigC, wasn't sure how widespread his books were
12:36:16 <CraigC> maybe people know him here, I am not much of a flyfisherman anymore, too old and toooooo fat to wade rivers now
12:36:44 <LindaGp1> Lol
12:37:48 <CraigC> William is at F&M
12:38:00 <CraigC> "strong event cycle"
12:38:17 <Benton Harbor> Nice!
12:38:34 <LindaGp1> AFTER OF we'll look
12:38:51 <KorbenC (T-3)> I dont know much about F&M, but it sounds like he is excited. Meaning it is likely good
12:39:31 <CraigC> I couldn't tell from a text if he is excited, just pasting the words
12:39:53 <KorbenC (T-3)> wait, right now?
12:40:00 <KorbenC (T-3)> I was talking about the one this morning
12:40:01 <CraigC> yes, now
12:40:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> oh wow, Maybe I should sit at F&M when I am there
12:40:20 <LindaGp1> COME ON Of
12:40:36 <CraigC> KorbenC (T-3), I'll warn him
12:40:43 <KorbenC (T-3)> Craig, lol.
12:40:45 <LindaGp1> KorbenC (T-3), you can clone yourself 😉
12:40:58 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am nice, especially when I am at home (YNP)
12:41:33 <KorbenC (T-3)> Linda, I was laughing at that, and I dropped my peanut butter. You see what you did, lol.
12:41:45 <Ryan> MAy be worth looking down basin after Old Faithful then
12:41:55 <LindaGp1> KorbenC (T-3), 😊
12:42:10 <KorbenC (T-3)> Craig, is he using his radio too call it?
12:42:36 <CraigC> KorbenC (T-3), I can't hear any radio thru my text
12:42:49 <Ryan> I would suppose he likely is, KC
12:42:57 <KorbenC (T-3)> If he is maybe Dave will be convinced to amble down there
12:43:13 <CraigC> dave is probably over my pass right now
12:43:19 <Ryan> That is a long amblew
12:43:38 <ynpvisitor85> maybe he can make it on his bicycle
12:43:51 <LindaGp1> GEEZ OF
12:44:09 <KorbenC (T-3)> OF, please?
12:44:33 <Ryan> Ya know it wouldnt kill anyone to do a quick look down basin for a massive steam column.
12:44:49 <Ryan> It's not like you could confuse F&M with anything else down there.
12:45:20 <LindaGp1> OF
12:45:28 <LindaGp1> NOPE
12:45:34 <LindaGp1> daren
12:45:39 <LindaGp1> Or darn
12:45:49 <LindaGp1> OF
12:46:01 <KorbenC (T-3)> Good Geyser
12:47:23 <LindaGp1> maybe it will short 😊
12:47:35 <KorbenC (T-3)> no, because then we have to come back sooner
12:49:00 <Ryan> Wont matter anyways. Even it is erupting I would not both an entry for it.
12:49:05 <LindaGp1> Good point
12:50:00 <CraigC> this is like those commercials..... but wait, that's not all
12:50:12 <ynpvisitor116> Cross the bridge and look for a miserable pile of rocks as Rocco called it.
12:50:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> we cant even see it LOL
12:50:45 <Ryan> Yeah I'd just hold the cam here for a while. When did he text you, Craig?
12:50:48 <LindaGp1> Am I inn the right area?
12:50:54 <Ryan> Yeah you're good here.
12:50:55 <KorbenC (T-3)> Linda, yes
12:51:16 <Ryan> We may see water over the trees, but I doubt it. Likely just a big sudden bomb of steam.
12:51:17 <CraigC> are we supposed to be able to see event cycles from here? guess I don't know much
12:51:24 <Benton Harbor> Don’t see a big steam cloud
12:51:27 <Ryan> No, you'd see an eruption
12:51:59 <LindaGp1> Low humidity is working against us
12:52:21 <Ryan> Assuming he texted you roughly 15 minutes into the event cycle, we are probably 35min into it now.
12:52:35 <Ryan> It would look like Grand. It is a very large eruption.
12:52:48 <KorbenC (T-3)> what is the average time after a event cycle start that it erupts?
12:52:57 <Ryan> 45min to an hour or so.
12:53:14 <Benton Harbor> Just after Dave leaves
12:54:12 <ynpvisitor107> no need to be zoomed in. we won't see water. just a steam cloud
12:54:36 <Ryan> River on for 5, off for 20, on for 5, off for 20, on for 25 min, lock for 5, and then eruption... Technically about an hour and twenty depending on when you call the start of the event cycle.
12:55:13 <ynpvisitor85> or, lock for 15, then no eruption. or...
12:55:24 <KorbenC (T-3)> and which vent is river?
12:55:29 <Ryan> Thats a super long one though. Can be as short as a half hour. From the first time River comes on. If you call the start from the first Main Vent Splash then add 10-15min
12:55:32 <Ryan> The one in the River :)
12:55:43 <Ryan> Well, a foot above it.
12:55:45 <KorbenC (T-3)> and how do you determine a lock?
12:55:51 <Ryan> Looks like it is in the river....
12:56:03 <Ryan> Good question, let me know when you get a definitive answer.
12:56:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> lol
12:56:48 <KorbenC (T-3)> I would say an eruption is a pretty clear lock :)
12:57:18 <Ryan> Objectively: High is sustained and steam driven to 15+ft, Gold is steady and steam driven to 5+ft, Angle in steam phase. Steam wafting from East Vent, huffing/surging in Main Vent, and huffing/surging in Upper Mortar.
12:57:34 <KorbenC (T-3)> which one is gold?
12:57:43 <KorbenC (T-3)> and which one is High?
12:57:49 <Ryan> High, Gold, and Angle, are the three that typically tell you the most. But there is nuances to all of it through the entire cycle.
12:57:54 <Ryan> Take your right hand
12:58:05 <Ryan> put it up like youre giving a high five
12:58:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> ok
12:58:31 <Ryan> Thumb - River, index - Main, middle = Gold, ring = Angle, Pinky = Main
12:58:44 <Ryan> East Vent is just right of Main it s a huge crater you cant miss it.
12:59:01 <Ryan> index - High
12:59:21 <KorbenC (T-3)> ok
12:59:24 <KorbenC (T-3)> thx
13:00:22 <Ryan> Sorry. And River shoots at a very low angle over the river, High Gold and Angle are on Fan's orange sintered cone. High is the highest up on the cone and angles slightly right. Gold is at its base and is more or less vertical, angle is a tiny crack between Gold and Main. Hard to see it if youve never before unless its on.
13:00:48 <Ryan> Theres a couple more vents in there but they really dont matter too much and I have only seen one of them (Gold 2).
13:01:10 <Ryan> If High/Gold have *any water* coming out of them (even blips) then River is absolutely ON.
13:02:12 <ynpvisitor107> Korben, you can dl Paul Strassers F&M Transaction article for free from the GOSA web page
13:02:19 <Ryan> High/Gold are "on" when they have semi-steady or steady splashing/jetting. Its kind of subjective. Which is why defined organization is a good thing because in a good event cycle you can see Main Vent's splashing get weaker and usually stop, meanwhile High and Gold get inversly stronger.
13:02:35 <KorbenC (T-3)> ynpvisitor107, link?
13:02:43 <LindaGp1> Quick check of bee
13:03:01 <ynpvisitor107>
13:03:13 <CraigC> "died slowly since my messages"
13:03:15 <KorbenC (T-3)> thanks
13:03:19 <KorbenC (T-3)> what page?
13:03:37 <Ryan> When the energy shift happens, you now High and Gold are likely going to be on very soon, if they are not already. When Main Vent doesn't stop splashing it makes it harder to determine if High and Gold are on because Main can always make them turn back off.
13:03:42 <Ryan> Table of Contents is your friend
13:05:00 <Ryan> Keep in mind, KC, the exact behavior leading to an eruption changes every season and its changed a lot since the late 1980s. Hell, the geyser itself has physically changed and the eruption column looks different.
13:05:12 <CraigC> sounds like no need to keep watching for it
13:05:15 <ynpvisitor116> If the ground near the benches is wet with tears, the lock didn't hold and eruption failed. (frequent occurence)
13:05:20 <Forestbewithyou> are we talking about fan and mortar
13:05:37 <Ryan> "If the ground near the benches is wet with tears, the lock didn't hold and eruption failed. (frequent occurence)"
13:05:40 <Ryan> I love it
13:06:42 <Forestbewithyou> Korben are you asking about Fan and Mortar
13:06:46 <Forestbewithyou> were
13:06:52 <KorbenC (T-3)> was
13:06:54 <KorbenC (T-3)> I got it now
13:07:10 <ynpvisitor107> also a detailed aticle by Tara Cross in TIX, but that has not been scanned to PDF yet
13:07:25 <Ryan> Mmmm look at all that DATA :love:
13:07:39 <Forestbewithyou> ok. If you need some notes I believe I may have some rough notes that I had recieved from other gazers awhile ago I could send you
13:07:51 <Forestbewithyou> I also have like a map of the vents
13:07:56 <KorbenC (T-3)> you have my emai;
13:08:16 <Forestbewithyou> yea. I would have to go digging through my one drive so let me know if you would like them
13:08:45 <ynpvisitor106> When gazers put on their panchos it is a good sign
13:08:59 <ynpvisitor80> And in local news, bee had a short indy and erupted while people were watching the cam for steam from down basin.
13:09:07 <Ryan> Those Transactions - that's what we need to provide for the NPS and that's what gets permits to do the fun stuff. :)
13:09:27 <ynpvisitor116> If Kitt is there it's double guaranteed.
13:09:43 <Ryan> Well I think now we are looking for Daisy and Riverside.
13:09:52 <LindaGp1> Daisy soon
13:10:57 <ynpvisitor107> A great Tara article in TXI is available
13:11:37 <LindaGp1> daisy
13:12:16 <Ryan> She recently wrote a transaction or a sput article on what a lock is.
13:13:03 <Ryan> It had an opening line of something like 'what fool would take an event as myriad, subjective, elusive, and confusing as a lock and try to write down a definition for it!? Well... that would be me."
13:13:22 <ynpvisitor107> and TXII
13:14:36 <ynpvisitor107> T12 articles has a photo with the vents playing
13:16:17 <Ryan> Jeff's steam geysers. :D
13:16:33 <Ryan> Tara gave my some funny stories about those. I guess it had some effects on the neighbors.
13:18:13 <ynpvisitor107> Lock article is SPUT 2018, June July vol 32 no 3
13:20:11 <ynpvisitor80> A fuzzy hot air balloon.
13:20:46 <ynpvisitor85> It's Balloon Boy!
13:21:18 <ynpvisitor80> I thought cooper was still at home.
13:21:27 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am
13:21:32 <Forestbewithyou> lol
13:21:35 <LindaGp1> Its spider balloon boy
13:22:18 <Ryan> KC, keep in mind that as F&M reactivate from dormanices that they can do weird things. The one I saw in 2018 (first from a dormancy) had absolutely no activty from any of Mortar's vents. Dry, light steam, and no huffing until 15 seconds into the eruption when Upper took off.
13:23:08 <ynpvisitor107> Ryan, here's that exact quote: “What sort of idiot would have tried to codify such a slippery, subjective, colloquial concept? Well, um…that would be me.”
13:23:20 <Forestbewithyou> lol
13:23:24 <Ryan> hahahah yup
13:23:43 <LindaGp1> Guess not enough humidity to see riverside
13:23:55 <Ryan> Its kind of like... you know when Beehive has that surge that you *know* will start the eruption?
13:24:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> yes
13:24:11 <Ryan> You can't enumerate it, but you KNOW it when you see it? That's a lock.
13:24:54 <Ryan> And thats why a lot of people wont explicity call locks at F&M, for the same reason one would call a non-BHI Beehive just because there is a huge surge.
13:25:31 <Forestbewithyou> because you don't know if it will start correct?
13:25:35 <LindaGp1> See steam?
13:25:51 <Ryan> No, because "lock" makes people think that its a guaranteed eruption.
13:26:01 <Forestbewithyou> oh ok
13:26:12 <Forestbewithyou> and of course a lock can be unlocked
13:26:13 <LindaGp1> Gone
13:26:21 <ynpvisitor116> Jake and I watched a 20 min. lock that didn't result in an eruption.
13:26:39 <Ryan> And unless youre one of those few people who really know what a lock is, you're likely to mis-call one.
13:26:51 <ynpvisitor107> the ever frustrating "false locks"
13:27:10 <ynpvisitor107> Damned if you call it, damned if you don't
13:27:20 <Forestbewithyou> which would be worse in your opinions. watching a lock that didn't result in a Fan and Mortar or having Giant having really large surges during a hot period and then fail to erupt
13:27:24 <KorbenC (T-3)> Just Damned Anyway -Ryan
13:27:45 <Ryan> Yup. The one we saw in 2014 had Will so nervous to call it that he didnt call it until 20 seconds before the start.
13:27:58 <KorbenC (T-3)> I have seen 2 giants, and 1 F&M, so an F&M lock but not eruption
13:28:33 <LindaGp1> Lion
13:28:36 <Ryan> In retrospect from the video it was pretty obviously in lock for a few minutes, but sometimes you just dont know and people get gangry* when you call a flase lock.
13:28:42 <Ryan> gangry - geyser angry
13:28:51 <LindaGp1> nope
13:29:05 <LindaGp1> Lc ie
13:29:21 <LindaGp1> Definitely water on lion
13:29:41 <Ryan> Mine was even worse because by all accounts Mortar was totally dead but Fan was all like "DO YOU WANNA BUILD A SNOW MAN!?"
13:30:07 <Ryan> I was half convinced we were about to see a Fan Geyser solo.
13:30:18 <Forestbewithyou> lol
13:30:28 <ynpvisitor116> Just describe what you see.
13:30:41 <Ryan> We basically did. Mortar was on for a whopping minute and then it was basically Fan for the rest of the eruption.
13:31:16 <Ryan> 116 is right, if main has splashing in it then just describe what you see.
13:32:01 <ynpvisitor107> Of course you can get eruptions without a lock. Even when water levels look poor in the 3 Amigos but Upper Mortar decides its time
13:32:05 <LindaGp1> How long for lion to be a minor?
13:32:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> Jarno, are you here?
13:32:42 <Ryan> I have yet to see Upper Mortar saddle up.
13:32:51 <Ryan> I hear its very exciting.
13:33:02 <ynpvisitor107> Suprising
13:33:24 <ynpvisitor116> I always called them the Three Little Pigs dancing.
13:33:43 <Ryan> And I think Will's first eruption did not even come from an event cycle. I think it was a regular cycle and... poof!
13:34:28 <Ryan> Someone told me, and I still call them, Frustration and Mortification
13:34:35 <Forestbewithyou> lol
13:34:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> lol
13:34:44 <Ryan> I love them. They are buttholes but I love them.
13:35:48 <Forestbewithyou> I really want to see fan and mortar. Tbh before steamboat became active and before I actually saw a steamboat. I wanted to see Fan and Mortar more than steamboat
13:36:09 <Ryan> The upside to their crumbling cones is that the big eruption throw rocks and you get to dodge them on the BW :D
13:36:30 <Forestbewithyou> or you get hit by them
13:36:38 <Ryan>
13:36:41 <Ryan> Rocks :)
13:37:18 <Ryan> :love:
13:37:58 <Ryan> :love: :love:
13:38:54 <ynpvisitor116> Bottom vent is 10x larger than 20 years ago.
13:39:46 <Ryan> East Vent is notably different than 2014
13:40:24 <Ryan> The amount of rocks coming out of Main and East Vent looked like Steamboat's South Vent. That cone is just imploding.
13:40:34 <ynpvisitor80> Not going to pork chop is it?
13:40:51 <Ryan> It's doing it slowly. lol
13:41:29 <Ryan> In some cases crap just falls down in the vents and then gets blown out, but some of it is bright pearly white sinter...

13:47:57 <KorbenC (T-3)> it just cuts out ALOT
13:48:15 <ynpvisitor80> If we see a fat old man running, is that Dave?
13:49:17 <LindaGp1> Not very tall
13:49:44 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hi Graham
13:49:45 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
13:49:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> afternoon/evening
13:49:52 <LindaGp1> GO STEAMBOAT, hi
13:50:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks for the text
13:50:04 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Graham
13:50:19 <LindaGp1> 👍
13:50:32 <Forestbewithyou> its not as bad as my internet Korben
13:50:37 <Forestbewithyou> your computer
13:50:46 <ynpvisitor1777> no BHI post, it must not be real
13:50:49 <KorbenC (T-3)> cam is running smoothly now
13:50:52 <KorbenC (T-3)> 1777, its there
13:51:04 <LindaGp1> ynpvisitor1777, I sent txt
13:51:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> dont walk away!
13:51:12 <ynpvisitor1777> got text, thanks
13:51:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> Mortar is breaking apart too, the teacup handle didnt last long before it broke off
13:51:28 <ynpvisitor107> send those visitors text
13:51:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> no gazers there? too early?
13:52:23 <ynpvisitor107> Bob Jones is at Grand evidently
13:52:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see William likse seeing Tilts Baby empty
13:53:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> see F&M Event Cycle that just got entered
13:53:37 <LindaGp1> At least no OF due
13:53:56 <KorbenC (T-3)> "Nearly called a lock"
13:54:36 <LindaGp1> Bee
13:54:42 <JarnoO> :bee:
13:54:50 <Forestbewithyou> are you sure
13:54:54 <Forestbewithyou> or is it a false surge
13:55:02 <Forestbewithyou> I am 30 seconds behind
13:55:04 <KorbenC (T-3)> we are sure
13:55:05 <JarnoO> took a while to start up on that second surge
13:55:11 <Forestbewithyou> ok
13:55:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> glad those peeps got to see it
13:55:12 <ynpvisitor48> Beehive
13:55:20 <ynpvisitor80> weeeeeee
13:55:21 <ynpvisitor48> for those of us on delay
13:55:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> gazer far left?
13:55:38 <Forestbewithyou> oh there it goes
13:55:44 <ynpvisitor80> Now you know why they moved.
13:55:44 <ynpvisitor107> was wondering the same Go SB
13:55:52 <ynpvisitor85> nice start
13:56:09 <JarnoO> that was a large Indicator. At least twice the cone and perhaps 2½
13:56:24 <JarnoO> thrice, actually
13:56:32 <ynpvisitor1777> stop
13:56:44 <ynpvisitor48> indy can erupt to about 8 feet tall
13:57:16 <He Is The One> Great color, evident power
13:57:36 <ynpvisitor1777> who is the one?
13:57:38 <ynpvisitor66> WOWOWOW! What an amazing eruption today!
13:57:44 <JarnoO> Indy done
13:58:03 <He Is The One> 1777, it's Neo (as in neodymium)
13:58:04 <LindaGp1> Lined up to watch
13:58:16 <ynpvisitor48> generally quits about 2.5 minutes into Bee's eruption
13:58:31 <ynpvisitor1777> ty he is the one
13:58:43 <He Is The One> :thumbsup:
13:59:55 <ynpvisitor80> Have not seen anyone doing cpr on a fat old man, so Dave must not have made it.
14:00:28 <LindaGp1> Whew made it
14:00:33 <JarnoO> Bee done. One of the better eruptions
14:00:57 <LindaGp1> Controls released
14:01:07 <ynpvisitor80> We not much left to see, so enjoy the sun.
14:01:10 <JarnoO> unfortunately still wind-blown
14:01:11 <ynpvisitor57> Great eruption.
14:01:53 <ynpvisitor116> Waxing poetic. Beeswax of course.
14:02:02 <LindaGp1> Well that was a good ending to my shift. Sorry camop I was hoping it would wait for you
14:03:08 <ynpvisitor03> OK wirh me Linda. I am happy to crodd it out
14:03:41 <ynpvisitor35> ynpvisitor03, 🙂
14:03:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice to read theres ife in F&M
14:04:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> pretty good social distancing spot there
14:04:29 <ynpvisitor1777> how is that?
14:05:02 <Ryan> Watching the replay. That indy was at least 15ft.
14:05:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> few people get down to F&M and those that do are usually headed to Morning Glory
14:05:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> so easy to stay away from peeps. The two event cycles show signs of life
14:05:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> interesting upper mortar was splashing in the pauses too
14:06:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> it doesnt do that
14:07:03 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to reset my browser. I will be back soon
14:07:24 <Ryan> Wow. That event cycle sounds like a false lock holy crap.
14:07:32 <Ryan> Have a good weekend
14:13:15 <JarnoO> cya Ryan
14:13:47 <ynpvisitor03> OF 1413 wc
14:17:57 <Forestbewithyou> ok I am back
14:20:16 <KorbenC (T-3)> welcome back Forest
14:20:24 <Forestbewithyou> thx
14:22:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah I see Dave psted Jet
14:29:39 <ynpvisitor57> He did what to Jet?!
14:30:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> posted, gee
14:31:00 <ynpvisitor57> :)
14:31:37 <CraigC> on gee tee?
14:32:37 <ynpvisitor57> I was just wondering if he got the bathroom working on the Minnow.
14:33:09 <CraigC> maybe he will leave a non-geyser note
14:33:42 <ynpvisitor17> hopefully it didn't erupt
14:34:03 <CraigC> no shi...errr.... kidding
14:34:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt know it wasnt working ....... dont invite Craig over, he has gas
14:34:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> or a gas leak
14:34:43 <CraigC> LOL
14:34:54 <ynpvisitor62> Dave dumped the minnow in jet??
14:34:58 <CraigC> I lit a match, no gas
14:35:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> you could roll it down the hill from the old parking lot
14:36:01 <CraigC> we need to know if Dave dumped IN the minnow
14:36:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> will he go for SB tomorrow night?
14:37:22 <KorbenC (T-3)> Graham, he said he was gonna be home tommorow
14:37:25 <CraigC> I forgot his itinerary
14:37:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe tomorrow will be the first sub-3 day?
14:38:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, he was staying in Gardiner and then going to Cody I think was the plan
14:38:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> and then home, so maybe heading East now
14:40:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> could be at Grand too
14:41:44 <ynpvisitor57> He said he was heading to Lake this morning.
14:49:24 <JarnoO> Granmd
14:49:33 <KorbenC (T-3)> yay
14:50:05 <JarnoO> though I would like to see a bit more than just a top-right corner :)
14:51:00 <Forestbewithyou> yea
14:51:09 <Forestbewithyou> lol
14:58:52 <He Is The One> Paging Camop - please pick up the white courtesy phone
15:01:39 <CraigC> it's always been the red phone
15:01:56 <CraigC>
15:04:48 <ynpvisitor82> You have clearance Clarance?
15:04:52 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to hop off now
15:04:56 <CraigC> roger Roger
15:04:57 <Forestbewithyou> talk to you guys later tonight
15:05:12 <KorbenC (T-3)> Bye Forest
15:05:36 <Forestbewithyou> bye!
15:09:31 <ynpvisitor19> Nice static
15:11:55 <JarnoO> wow... sub-1h50m Daisy. 1459 ns
15:12:03 <JarnoO> an actual confirmed one
15:16:43 <KorbenC (T-3)> Aurum time here
15:17:27 <JarnoO> AB
15:18:43 <JarnoO> Cistern high and in overflow. NV wispy 10 feet every 5-12m, SV only steam, no runoff yet
15:19:32 <JarnoO> Cistern actually overflowing in all direction, light boil in opalescent pool
15:20:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> huh
15:20:13 <KorbenC (T-3)> That was quick for water to return
15:20:25 <KorbenC (T-3)> I ma gonna say 3 days 6 hours
15:20:41 <JarnoO> likely going to be a short interval again
15:20:56 <KorbenC (T-3)> if not less tahn 3 days 6 hours
15:21:10 <JarnoO> that'd be a record-short interval (again)
15:21:23 <KorbenC (T-3)> not until I get there :)
15:21:34 <KorbenC (T-3)> I caught the first record itnerval, now I want the second :)
15:22:07 <KorbenC (T-3)> 3d 3h 48m was the last one I think.
15:22:44 <JarnoO> Korben, Cristobal is a TS again with 35kt sustained
15:23:12 <KorbenC (T-3)> saw that, thx
15:23:23 <KorbenC (T-3)> SB June 7th at 0111
15:40:20 <KorbenC (T-3)> Jarno, now that SB has water nad Cistern is overflow, you have a prediction?
15:41:55 <JarnoO> leaning towards 4d±24h, so 7 June @ 1552±24h
15:42:10 <JarnoO> Aurum 1539
15:43:12 <JarnoO> three rangers at Beach. Wonder what they're doing there
15:43:27 <JarnoO> fourth one incoming
15:43:38 <KorbenC (T-3)> huh
15:43:40 <ynpvisitor82> That can't be good.
15:43:48 <KorbenC (T-3)> they find out where that lady fell in?
15:43:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> 0352 on 7 June
15:44:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> +-12h
15:44:28 <KorbenC (T-3)> GO STEAMBOAT, are you price or righting my original SB predict?
15:44:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> nope ....... just going for under 4 days
15:45:03 <KorbenC (T-3)> grabing something out of their packs
15:46:25 <KorbenC (T-3)> mhvogel entered Aurum, must be in that ranger group
15:47:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> also means KC won't be stressing out if SB has already eruted on the drive through WY
15:47:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> has a couple of days to settle in
15:48:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> lol
15:48:22 <KorbenC (T-3)> Well, if it stays 3 to 4 days taht is a good window for me to sit :)
15:48:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF had a good try then
15:49:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> May 2018 i was checking all the way there and ended up driving from airport to SB to spend the night rather than staying in Belgrade overnight
15:49:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> lol, that is what happened with Giant and I 2 years ago :)
15:50:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> te checked in at the lodge next night, slept, and came out the next day and caught it
15:50:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was the May 27th first observed start
15:50:45 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hi Linda
15:50:52 <LindaG> KorbenC (T-3), hi
15:51:12 <KorbenC (T-3)> Graham, now I am allocating 3.14% of the blame to you if I miss SB because I picked the wrong day :P
15:51:15 <KorbenC (T-3)> Kidding
15:51:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> 2 weeks today I will be on the road
15:51:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> hey i am predicting it goes before you even leave home
15:52:16 <KorbenC (T-3)> yes, but then it would likely erupt at some point while I am there
15:52:23 <KorbenC (T-3)> and then it would be #100
15:52:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dont have a prediction for that
15:53:02 <KorbenC (T-3)> I cried my first SB, I cant imagine Crying if I see 100
15:54:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dont think i have cried for a geyser, just too excited to do it
15:55:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am a softie :)
15:55:23 <KorbenC (T-3)> I cried for Giant, SB, F&M, Beehive, Aurum, Lion...
15:55:36 <KorbenC (T-3)> do you want me to go through the whole list or just stop there?
15:55:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> you can stop there
15:56:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> THere are about 25 more geysers, lol
15:56:28 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am even more of a softie than Craig
15:58:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> isnt Cistern full at 1d16h pretty quick recovery?
15:58:22 <KorbenC (T-3)> I think so
15:58:38 <KorbenC (T-3)> also, if it was having good overflow by then it was probably overflowing overnight
15:58:43 <Jeff> im probably gonna cry if i ever get my first sb
15:59:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> soon Jeff ... soon
15:59:25 <Jeff> 2 weeks left
16:00:46 <KorbenC (T-3)> SB was more of a sob and babbling brook of tears, the others are jsut a few tears ;)
16:01:40 <JarnoO> 3d03h Steamboat last year had Cistern fully recovered @ 1145 on June 14 (previous Steamboat June 12 @ 1252), with eruption on June 15 @ 1640 ns
16:02:21 <JarnoO> but even by those standards, Cistern recovered extremely fast
16:02:27 <KorbenC (T-3)> Jarno, that was exact
16:02:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> the 1640 time
16:03:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> so maybe under 3 days thistime :)
16:05:32 <JarnoO> That would be amazing
16:05:45 <CraigC> maybe it will blow out tomorrow
16:07:24 <JarnoO> all I can say is that it's a monster :)
16:07:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> maybe it will still be alive for you to get there :)
16:10:36 <JarnoO> OF
16:10:38 <JarnoO> at last
16:10:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow my sster finally got the check fro the house closing 9 days ago
16:10:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats ridiculous
16:11:24 <CraigC> that your sister got it and not you?
16:12:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha my wire deposit worked. attorney said the couldnt wire it to her so the overnighted it ... stuck at UPS facility from Sat till today
16:12:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> was "out for delivery" all week
16:13:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> dont know why the wire didnt work ... she works at the bank and knows it works
16:13:20 <CraigC> wow
16:13:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> attorney said "call the bank to check" and she said "I am the bank"
16:14:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh well, thank goodness she wasnt closing on buying a house too
16:14:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> are you heading south soon Craig?
16:15:03 <ynpvisitor16> Someone probably entered a wrong number. The liar should have checked on their end.
16:15:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah ... attorneys ... what can i say
16:16:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh well its done ..... time to move on
16:16:10 <CraigC> we're probably hitting the road Tuesday
16:16:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> going to Moab or somewhere else?
16:16:37 <KorbenC (T-3)> No, I prefer to keep YNP to myself :)
16:16:43 <ynpvisitor16> Better the road, then a mail box.
16:16:43 <CraigC> it's a mystery
16:17:09 <CraigC> not Moab, pretty sure
16:17:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice. i have only been to Moab area once ... need to get back
16:17:16 <CraigC> wayyyyyy toooooo hotttttttt
16:17:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, get back in April
16:17:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> or October i guess
16:17:56 <CraigC> Oct to March
16:17:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> Bryce/Zion Craig?
16:18:13 <ynpvisitor16> Still too many people in October.
16:18:25 <CraigC> Bryce was one of the places we have considered
16:18:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, will ty for then Craig, thaks. not going to be this winter tho
16:18:45 <CraigC> no way to Zion
16:19:32 <CraigC> only time I would consider Zion would be Nov to Feb
16:19:39 <CraigC> it's a madhouse
16:19:53 <KorbenC (T-3)> canyon lands?
16:20:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
16:20:16 <CraigC> When I say "Moab", I am basically saying Canyonlands
16:20:25 <KorbenC (T-3)> ok
16:20:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> arches wil be busy now too, get in early i guess
16:20:55 <CraigC> I camp and bike up towards Island in the Sky
16:20:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see rocky mountain is doing timed entry during peak hours
16:21:03 <CraigC> we avoid Arches
16:21:29 <KorbenC (T-3)> COS Garden of the gods are getting overly crowded
16:21:46 <CraigC> only time I hit Arches is in winter, I usually drive in before sunrise, take photos, leave
16:22:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> wasnt bad when i was there in Dec KC ... haha but that was a weekday
16:23:02 <KorbenC (T-3)> Dec is not bad
16:23:10 <KorbenC (T-3)> wait, you were here last Dec?
16:23:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, need to park and hike, just like parts of YNP
16:23:25 <KorbenC (T-3)> huh, do any 14er?
16:23:32 <ynpvisitor107> There's 2 back ways into Arches that I've never seen monitored
16:23:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep, was at my sisters and did a day trip to COS
16:24:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> not me KC
16:24:12 <KorbenC (T-3)> huh
16:24:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hole?
16:25:09 <KorbenC (T-3)> thought I saw some splashing
16:26:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> too far away, i dont see it
16:26:47 <CraigC> ynpvisitor107, I go W.Spr way
16:27:27 <CraigC> cool dino tracks along the way
16:27:41 <CraigC> and stop and pay tribute to Ed Abbey
16:41:13 <KorbenC (T-3)> SNOW!
16:42:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> pretty sure its rain
16:42:35 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am using my imagination Graham
16:42:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> just streaks on cam
16:42:44 <KorbenC (T-3)> it is 76, I am sure it is not snow
16:42:46 <He Is The One> BIG raindrops
16:42:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> could be hail?
16:43:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> storms coming here
16:43:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> if we pan around to the inn behind hte cam I can tell
16:44:13 <LindaG> Ha! Thought it was snow
16:45:02 <He Is The One> I just checked and this little shower didn't produce any lightning, so hail is unlikely. Storm to the south has some lightning.
16:45:07 <KorbenC (T-3)> supposed to snow on my drive up on Monday :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
16:46:42 <JarnoO> Daisy looking promising
16:53:35 <ynpvisitor107> road goes right thru that dino trackway
16:53:51 <JarnoO> Castle
16:55:12 <JarnoO> Daisy
16:59:07 <JarnoO> How's Grotto doing? Wouldn't it be about-ish time for it after a ~22h marathon?
17:00:23 <ynpvisitor107> I'd expect t this evening. Should get a G Ftn with it.
17:02:21 <JarnoO> afternoon kc
17:02:28 <kcmule> g'day
17:05:01 <JarnoO> that formula for Grotto's interval from 1997, if it still works, gives a ±40½h interval. Probably can be used as some indication as to when to expect it
17:05:27 <Betty> afternoon all, evening JarnoO
17:05:34 <JarnoO> evening Betty
17:07:44 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hi Betty
17:08:15 <KorbenC (T-3)> hows it going?
17:08:56 <Betty> I´m fine, Korben. You?
17:09:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> same :)
17:10:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> did you see the 2 F&M eent cylces, and water back at SB yet?
17:10:40 <KorbenC (T-3)> Caslte majro
17:11:38 <KevinS> Betty, hi
17:12:44 <Betty> hi KevinS
17:13:04 <KorbenC (T-3)> Hi Kevin
17:13:56 <KevinS> Did power get restored at Norris? It would be nice to have loggers again.
17:14:08 <Betty> sounds good on both :-)
17:14:09 <JarnoO> YNM is still dead
17:14:20 <JarnoO> so don't think power was restored
17:15:05 <KevinS> KorbenC (T-3), Get the power back on at Norris when you go to the park
17:16:28 <KorbenC (T-3)> I will also try to convice F&M to go
17:18:33 <JarnoO> that Pinwheel note is intriguing to me
17:18:48 <JarnoO> not sure if you saw that one too, Betty
17:19:34 <KorbenC (T-3)> pinwheel gonna pull a porkchop?
17:20:20 <JarnoO> it is some geyser in the Pinwheel area, so not certain if it's Pinwheel itself
17:20:38 <ynpvisitor31> doubt that KorbenC (T-3),
17:20:58 <LindaG> Betty, KevinS, hi
17:21:12 <ynpvisitor82> Pretty interesting geyser day.

17:30:18 <ynpvisitor107> but not in your pack
17:30:38 <KorbenC (T-3)> we only bring chairs for geysers like SB...
17:30:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> crazy creek is often in my pack when i fly
17:30:45 <KorbenC (T-3)> I stand most of the time for every other geyser
17:30:56 <KorbenC (T-3)> or do 11 laps around geyser hill while waiting for Bee
17:31:12 <ynpvisitor107> Bringing a bike?
17:31:21 <KorbenC (T-3)> no, I like walking
17:31:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> larger chair for SB and Ftn, smaller one for geyser hill, bulger, other areas
17:31:30 <KorbenC (T-3)> I can walk all day :)
17:31:34 <LindaG> Binoculars?
17:31:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dnt fly with a bike
17:31:41 <KorbenC (T-3)> Linda, got them
17:31:49 <LindaG> Camera?
17:32:05 <KorbenC (T-3)> I dont really sit down too much, I am too much of a buzzy bee.
17:32:07 <KorbenC (T-3)> Yes Linda
17:32:10 <ynpvisitor107> Yes but bike gets you from rockpile to Hill fast or vice versa
17:32:21 <LindaG> KorbenC (T-3), 👍
17:32:28 <KorbenC (T-3)> you guys know this is not my first rodeo :)
17:32:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> rockpile is still dead tho
17:32:52 <LindaG> That yes Linda was just like a yes dear, haha
17:33:37 <KorbenC (T-3)> yes dear, that is correct. :p
17:33:48 <LindaG> KorbenC (T-3), lol
17:34:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> got the car cover?
17:34:11 <KorbenC (T-3)> well, if I walk slow enough for the cam to pan over I will wave :)
17:34:54 <KorbenC (T-3)> Graham, I live silica covered things :)
17:35:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> what about the picknic table cover to protect the windshield?
17:35:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> ooh nice spellering
17:35:54 <KorbenC (T-3)> :p
17:36:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> so far i have been lucky and SB hasnt slimed the parking lot
17:36:08 <KorbenC (T-3)> we have picnic covers
17:36:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> i need to get one .. or car cover
17:36:32 <KorbenC (T-3)> again, it is not my first trip, not nearly my first trip.
17:37:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, but you will always forget something
17:37:56 <KorbenC (T-3)> It will be my toothbrush :)
17:38:02 <KorbenC (T-3)> or my sanity
17:38:25 <LindaG> Bandaids?
17:38:42 <KorbenC (T-3)> got those
17:39:04 <KorbenC (T-3)> My voice is back and primed as ever to yell at stupid visitors
17:39:08 <LindaG> You are ready!
17:39:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> dont need to do that KC
17:40:18 <KorbenC (T-3)> but I love yelling at vistiors, it is like a sport
17:40:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> gets peeps a bad name
17:41:07 <ynpvisitor31> Be a good representative for gazers
17:41:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> smetimes its hard to remember that we are just visitors ourseves
17:41:15 <KorbenC (T-3)> I dont yell at them meanly
17:41:16 <JarnoO> OF
17:41:24 <KorbenC (T-3)> unless they are poking at hte features with a cane
17:41:40 <KorbenC (T-3)> most of the time I avoid visitors, and tell them what geysers are gonna go next
17:42:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> you need to avoid them on this trip
17:42:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> I will, as far away as I can
17:50:17 <LindaG> Churn looks steamy
17:55:07 <KorbenC (T-3)> I wonder if Oblong is gonna go anytime soon
17:55:18 <JarnoO> doubtful
17:55:23 <JarnoO> though who knows
17:55:34 <LindaG> Have t seen it erupt for a while
17:55:51 <LindaG> KorbenC (T-3), you'll have to check it out
17:56:06 <KorbenC (T-3)> I am supposed to get 36 mile an hour sustained wind gusts, and 60 mph gusts tommrow :( I hate wind unless it is the snow.
17:56:41 <LindaG> I think I'm getting g more storms tonight
17:56:43 <KorbenC (T-3)> sustained wind speeds*
17:57:40 <KorbenC (T-3)> LindaG, you are.
17:58:24 <LindaG> They seem to be passing just north of me
17:58:32 <LindaG> Dinnertime
17:58:47 <KorbenC (T-3)> Bye Linda
18:04:58 <Betty> Dave is in the park? Nice!
18:23:45 <ynpvisitor03> Riverside 1823 ie wc
18:25:11 <ynpvisitor03> Outside window. Perhaps not.
18:26:51 <JarnoO> Riverside is perfectly possible. It had a 4h interval not too long ago and an in-basin 5h one yesterday
18:29:27 <KorbenC (T-3)> that was Riverside I think
18:38:34 <KorbenC (T-3)> anotehr F&M event cycle
18:38:57 <KorbenC (T-3)> another good one, jsut slightly less good
18:39:58 <JarnoO> decent Daisy steam
18:40:39 <KorbenC (T-3)> maybe F&M will decide it is tired of SB showing it up and getting all the attention and do something for us
18:41:28 <ynpvisitor21> It would good good if SB-watchers had the fear of [i]missing something[/i] in the Upper Basin.
18:41:34 <JarnoO> the signs are at least positive. Perhaps reactivitation for a few years this year
18:41:47 <KorbenC (T-3)> Arty ie?
18:41:58 <KorbenC (T-3)> 2020 has multiple years?
18:42:05 <ynpvisitor21> Maybe, but I'd wait to see more steam.
18:42:15 <JarnoO> Arty seems building to one
18:42:18 <ynpvisitor82> I sure hope not!!!!
18:44:08 <KorbenC (T-3)> RMichaels in basin with Art
18:44:10 <KorbenC (T-3)> y
18:45:25 <ynpvisitor82> F&M sounding good
18:45:52 <KorbenC (T-3)> it must know I am comming so it can have 2 locks and no eruptions
18:46:09 <KorbenC (T-3)> coming *
18:46:17 <ynpvisitor82> Bring your key
18:46:59 <JarnoO> from what I know, F&M have a few years of varying degrees of activity, followed by 1-2 years of dormancy (at least, that's what E data and in-basin observations suggest). Hence "reactivitation for a few years this year"
18:55:36 <JarnoO> Daisy looked real promising there
18:56:02 <LindaG> Teasing us
18:56:12 <JarnoO> yup
19:01:54 <JarnoO> Daisy
19:01:56 <JarnoO> at last
19:02:00 <ynpvisitor03> 1901
19:02:36 <LindaG> Yay

19:33:54 <KorbenC (T-3)> Aurum is having some nice splashes
19:34:10 <ynpvisitor82> Should be ready
19:34:21 <ynpvisitor82> It has a customer.
19:34:50 <KorbenC (T-3)> Sir, do you want to pay in Credit, Debit, or Cahs?
19:34:59 <KorbenC (T-3)> that was a really good surge
19:35:04 <ynpvisitor82> Wow
19:38:28 <ynpvisitor82> Should go now.
19:40:26 <KorbenC (T-3)> thats William all right

19:50:38 <JarnoO> hm, must've missed a Lion initial
19:59:03 <KorbenC (T-3)> Aurum wants to be fickle I see

20:34:46 <LindaG1> Bulger
