06:15:17 <ynpvisitor109> or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6z4W04xJgqQ
06:24:13 <Recrystallizing> Possible Artemisia
06:24:24 <Recrystallizing> Or Grotto
06:25:41 <Recrystallizing> That is definitely not Grotto
06:28:32 <CC> morning Ryan
06:29:39 <Recrystallizing> Good morning. We are very slowly cooling down here.
06:31:09 <Betty> morning Ryan
06:31:53 <Recrystallizing> Pretty confident that was Arty about ten minutes ago
06:32:05 <Recrystallizing> should change it to ie though....
06:38:28 <Betty> beautiful morning
06:39:44 <ynpvisitor109> no wash water left in bottle, can only wipe.
06:41:17 <ynpvisitor112> As long as it's at least 2 ply!
06:42:18 <ynpvisitor109> must not be Charmin, leaves some behind :)
06:44:18 <ynpvisitor112> That's crappy
06:44:33 <Betty> :-)
06:46:32 <Betty> morning KevinS
06:46:53 <KevinS> Betty, Good morning and to all
06:48:06 <LindaGp> Good morning!

06:48:13 <CC> Morning Linda
06:48:15 <Recrystallizing> Very good article I read this morning.
06:48:20 <LindaGp> I can take cam
06:48:24 <Betty> morning LindaGp
06:48:26 <KevinS> LindaGp, morning
06:48:30 <LindaGp> Betty, hi
06:48:31 <CC> okay it is yours
06:49:03 <LindaGp> Got it
06:49:16 <CC> okay..bbl
06:49:25 <LindaGp> CC, nye
06:49:31 <Betty> thx CC, bye
06:50:12 <LindaGp> Hi Betty, KevinS,
06:55:23 <Recrystallizing> Depression
06:55:24 <Recrystallizing> ?
06:55:33 <Recrystallizing> Looking like some steamy runoff
06:56:29 <Recrystallizing> Oops think I was look at Scissors.
06:56:39 <Recrystallizing> The new cam angle keeps messing me up with Depression
06:57:15 <LindaGp> Lol me
06:57:35 <LindaGp> want to catch daisy
06:58:41 <LindaGp> can't see a darn thing
06:59:43 <LindaGp> daisy
06:59:57 <Betty> I think we could see it better with a bit zoomed out
07:00:04 <LindaGp> it's in thrre
07:01:14 <Betty> yes, ie
07:02:31 <LindaGp> Betty, saw it stsrt
07:03:22 <Betty> yes, you did. I did not because my streaming is choppy again
07:03:45 <LindaGp> Betty, 😊
07:04:11 <LindaGp> Lots and lots of steam
07:04:41 <Betty> OF window
07:05:03 <LindaGp> Oops thx
07:06:29 <LindaGp> Korben out there I wonder
07:06:52 <LindaGp> His dad must be pooped
07:11:29 <LindaGp> OF
07:13:55 <LindaGp> Backlit looks great
07:15:46 <LindaGp> Animal shot for craig
07:24:40 <Betty> is Craig still there or was it a day trip?
07:25:16 <LindaGp> Has campsite in west
07:25:33 <LindaGp> So assume still there
07:26:41 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC plus all distant gazers
07:26:47 <LindaGp> Speak of the devils
07:26:56 <CraigC> Still in trailer.....waiting
07:26:58 <Betty> hey CraigC, are you at ynp still?
07:26:59 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, morning
07:27:12 <LindaGp> CraigC, hey
07:27:14 <Dave from B™> haha Linda
07:27:17 <CraigC> Hey all
07:27:19 <Betty> morning Dave from B™
07:27:45 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, ☺
07:27:50 <Betty> lol, Linda
07:29:09 <LindaGp> CraigC, caught a land otter in your memory
07:31:17 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I have bad news...Becca and I won't be coming to SB this weekend; she has a work meeting and a shift she can't get rid of
07:31:44 <LindaGp>
07:32:25 <CraigC> Dave from B™, sorry to hear
07:32:33 <CraigC> LindaGp, :)
07:33:39 <CraigC> I'm not sure of our plans for Norris. I dont want to be in any crowds
07:34:28 <Betty> bummer, Dave :-(
07:36:26 <Betty> maybe look for a nice spot in back basin a bit far away from the crowds and enjoy SB in full height?
07:37:35 <Dave from B™> And then be night watchman a little closer
07:38:13 <Recrystallizing> Echinus may be a good place to sit for waiting.
07:38:34 <Recrystallizing> Decker Island has nice places in the trees and the overlook above Orby is nice, too
07:48:24 <Dave from B™> Anyone else thinking meth when seeing Ryan's moniker?
07:48:58 <LindaGp> 🙄
07:50:33 <Recrystallizing> Ya know. Back in the day I used to make sugar based rocket propellants. One method was the "recrystallization" method where in all the ingredients were mixed and dissolved in water. One ingredient (fructose) had a law melting point. Eventually you boiled off all the water and left behind a playdoh like putty that was around 170F but perfectly mixzed propellant.
07:50:47 <CraigC> Thinking maybe just hanging in tge truck at elk park
07:51:05 <Recrystallizing> One of the intermediate stages where you had to change the temperature of the pot/skillet was referred to as the "Crystal Mush" stage :D
07:51:39 <Recrystallizing> Side ntoe: yes, for six years I literally COOKED rocket propellants. Imagine making toffee... except toffee that burns really fast.
07:54:09 <Recrystallizing> Today's moniker is a follow up from yesterday. The more technical term would be "freezing" as IO am going from a molten liquid to a solid. But it is still 84 here today. So I am merely recrystallziing.
07:57:13 <Cuprous> https://io9.gizmodo.com/the-fake-chemical-compound-isaac-asimov-invented-to-pun-5887014
07:57:23 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the explanation
07:57:26 <LindaGp> Grotto? Rocket?
07:57:33 <Dave from B™> CraigC, how are the crowds in YNP?
07:57:56 <Recrystallizing> Grotto
08:00:43 <LindaGp> Dep
08:00:44 <LindaGp> .
08:02:30 <LindaGp> Good one
08:02:55 <Betty> yay
08:03:08 <LindaGp> 😊
08:03:18 <Cuprous> Depression major!
08:03:27 <Betty> water is back at SB
08:04:08 <Cuprous> Has anyone ever studied Depression enough to determine if it has a predictable pattern at all?
08:04:49 <Dave from B™> It cycles about every 30 minutes
08:04:52 <Recrystallizing> Its ysyally pretty regular when active.
08:04:54 <LindaGp> Looks empty
08:05:02 <Dave from B™> "Normal" intervals are 3.5-6.5 hours
08:05:08 <Recrystallizing> Some eruptions though are just blips. We wouldnt even know it from here even if we were watching
08:05:16 <LindaGp> I've never put major or min.
08:05:31 <LindaGp> Any guidelines for that?
08:05:41 <LindaGp> There's korben
08:06:00 <Dave from B™> Mouth is ie
08:06:16 <Cuprous> Thanks. My "major" was a joke because it was at least a 2-foot blorp. Or maybe it was a blurp.
08:06:25 <Betty> yes, there´s Korben
08:06:49 <LindaGp> Cuprous, 😊
08:07:12 <LindaGp> Cuprous, it was a good one though
08:07:14 <Cuprous> :lol:
08:07:14 <Dave from B™> I would not label Depressions as maors or minors
08:07:31 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, 👍
08:07:38 <Cuprous> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
08:07:52 <LindaGp> I never really thought about it for dep.
08:08:18 <Cuprous> Not necessary, unless there's a duration difference of note.
08:09:01 <LindaGp> Cuprous, I always feel lucky just to catch it erupting
08:09:47 <LindaGp> I think korben missed the eruption though
08:11:51 <Dave from B™> Some, will write in comments if it is a really good eruption
08:15:09 <LindaGp> Hi jake
08:15:23 <ynpvisitor36> Korben's note is post eruptive. This one could use a comment on it that is was a strong eruption.
08:15:45 <LindaGp> Ok
08:18:54 <Recrystallizing> I'd note it was voluminous. I wouldn't exactly call it strong.
08:19:03 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
08:19:14 <Dave from B™> That race put me to sleep
08:19:16 <Recrystallizing> A strong eruption of Depression usually involves a blue bubble and a burst over 10ft in height.
08:19:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning
08:19:44 <Recrystallizing> The eruption was pretty heavy though for sure.
08:20:08 <LindaGp> When Done on cam I'll create a video for depression and attach
08:20:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably the best I have seen on the cam.
08:20:23 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, 👍

08:20:34 <Betty> good morning Kevin L™ 🌵
08:20:41 <Recrystallizing> https://www.flickr.com/photos/131878030@N04/33136899226/in/photolist-Sucgy1-SucgEJ-RiQB7g/ and a blue bubble I was a tad late for
08:21:24 <Recrystallizing> August 12, 2014 was a good day for geysers....
08:21:31 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
08:21:42 <Betty> pretty pics, Ryan
08:21:45 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, sent an email
08:22:29 <ynpvisitor115> Depression burst first 0835 according to the clock on the video
08:22:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was just looking at it Linda
08:22:50 <ynpvisitor115> 08:00:35
08:23:27 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor115, 👍
08:26:08 <Dave from B™> Ryan, really? Depression to 10'.
08:26:21 <Recrystallizing> https://www.flickr.com/photos/131878030@N04/33136898836/in/photolist-Sucgy1-SucgEJ-RiQB7g/
08:26:21 <Eric> So big question...does SB erupt today?
08:26:25 <Recrystallizing> Photographic proof positive, Dave
08:26:29 <Dave from B™> That seems like an R scale height
08:26:59 <Dave from B™> Are we talking spritzing or chevrons?:D
08:27:03 <Recrystallizing> Eric, that depends on if theres a truck in the government area or if the water pump tuirns on :)
08:27:21 <Recrystallizing> Dave, we always measure sprits lol
08:27:51 <Eric> Those Norris reports look like the system is ready already!
08:28:10 <Eric> Castle
08:28:31 <Eric> or did we have a minor earlier?
08:28:55 <LindaGp> Been doing that for a while but nothing higher
08:28:59 <Eric> Not castle, but nice burst from castle
08:29:23 <Recrystallizing> Now jetting style geysers can burst? GREAT
08:29:44 <Eric> A burst is a short pulse Ryan
08:29:48 <ynpvisitor115> minor 2135 last night
08:29:56 <Eric> it might burst a jet :-P
08:30:18 <Eric> I don't like the term jet
08:30:29 <Dave from B™> I don't expect SB today
08:30:29 <Recrystallizing> Thats ok, I loathe the term "burst"
08:31:20 <Eric> Webster - Burst: to emerge or spring suddenly
08:31:37 <KevinS> No SB and IMO not tomorrow either
08:31:39 <ynpvisitor60> No outbursts please.
08:31:51 <Betty> hi Eric, when did you sneak in?
08:32:00 <Eric> Hi :-D
08:32:08 <LindaGp> Katie are you ready?
08:32:11 <ynpvisitor115> Dome today?
08:32:33 <Recrystallizing> https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1GCEU_enUS867US867&sxsrf=ALeKk00i3I_A6ZhWNpnQ8fpAFYKXMLL5-A:1591885916779&q=Dictionary&stick=H4sIAAAAAAAAAONQesSoyi3w8sc9YSmZSWtOXmMU4-LzL0jNc8lMLsnMz0ssqrRiUWJKzeNZxMqFEAMA7_QXqzcAAAA&zx=1591885933953#dobs=burst Yeah thyeres a whole slew of definitions.
08:32:43 <Recrystallizing> I just think it is very poorly applied to geysers
08:32:49 <Dave from B™> hahaha 60
08:34:52 <Eric> That's ok...I think jet is horrible, not descriptive of a sudden burst :-P
08:34:55 <Recrystallizing> Time for le fluff
08:35:22 <Dave from B™> I prefer ONLY the WoRd ErUpT
08:35:46 <Eric> PUmp!
08:35:58 <Eric> Jetting to 20ft!
08:36:05 <Eric> Rft
08:36:22 <ynpvisitor115> Nows your time to shine Ryan. You can provide a whole new lexicon of descriptive terms for geysering actions
08:36:22 <Recrystallizing> No, I sgree there. I apply "jet" to either a noun applied to the water column itself or as a verb "jetting" applied to the sustained production of a jet.
08:36:30 <Katie> I am now, Linda.
08:36:43 <LindaGp> Ok it's yours
08:36:53 <LindaGp> just put on OF
08:37:05 <Dave from B™> Anyone else wonering why Katie changed her name to Linda?:)
08:37:05 <LindaGp> Controls released
08:37:12 <Katie> perfect. I can make coffee
08:37:21 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, haha!
08:37:22 <Katie> commas save lives
08:37:26 <Katie> I used one
08:37:30 <Recrystallizing> 115, I speak only for conversations sake. But somethings truly don't make sense. When I was little I heard the term "bursts" used for Grand and I watched it erupt thinking "What? TWO bursts? Its bursting every second!"
08:37:46 <LindaGp> I'll do that dep video
08:38:40 <Recrystallizing> If its standardized then I will use it. Just some things are confusing. And when they lead to confusion (like the restart v choke topic) I think they then merit discussion on their accuracy and/or usefulness.
08:39:46 <ynpvisitor115> i think the idea for Grand is that its a series a bursts but clearly not the same as a Dome series or Churn or Vault etc etc
08:39:58 <Recrystallizing> TSB defines lost of these words in his book and those are defintions I frequently will turn to as they apply to geysers. I think people mis-use them.
08:40:16 <Recrystallizing> 115, yeah I got it eventually, but as a younger kid thinking simplistically I just was confused.
08:40:27 <Eric> I think the "bursts" for Grand refer to the large columns that burst up from the pool. Unlike the continuous column it pretty much maintains during it's eruption.
08:41:22 <Recrystallizing> "bursts" for Grand are defined as the eruptive episodes between periods of quiescence of the pool.
08:41:36 <Recrystallizing> (You cant use the term in the definition, Eric :) )
08:42:05 <Eric> example in context :-P
08:42:23 <Eric> but yes, your definition seems fine to me.
08:43:34 <Katie> I'm just amused that quiescence was used in defining bursts.
08:43:42 <Recrystallizing> 115, at one point I was working on a article discussing the differences between "bursts" and "series" behavior. I was basically arguing that bursting and series behavior are the same thing
08:44:10 <Katie> so we've had a 99 burst Steamboat?
08:44:48 <Katie> what about the minors?
08:45:11 <Recrystallizing> For the most part, I personally think they are caused by the same physical process (localized loss of heat leading to a temporary cessation of eruptive activity)
08:45:27 <Recrystallizing> I dont consider SB to be in a series.
08:45:41 <ynpvisitor115> RecrystallizingInPA, Care to explicate further?
08:46:06 <Recrystallizing> It is in an active phase. Example of precedence: Splendid has active phases and has series within those active phases - as does Union Geyser.
08:46:23 <ynpvisitor115> re bursts V series
08:46:23 <Recrystallizing> On the physical process or on what I just noted?
08:46:33 <Recrystallizing> oh oh oh
08:47:54 <Recrystallizing> I think before an eruption (or series) begins you have a baseline balance of heat and water. During the eruption, the process causes heat to be used up in the form of boiling. When the rate of heat loss is greater than heat input, the eruption stops.
08:48:22 <Recrystallizing> In a bursting style or series style geyser its only temporary. The system isn't actually done with the entire eruptive reaction.
08:48:48 <Betty> OFie
08:48:57 <Betty> OF ie*
08:49:01 <ynpvisitor115> Time factor?
08:49:13 <Katie> Betty - your delay is several minutes
08:49:21 <Recrystallizing> It stalls, probably somewhere closer to the surface, but is able to rapidly resume surface eruptive activity. And continues doing so until the entire system has lost enough heat and water to make it completely collapse.
08:49:24 <Betty> hmmm
08:50:18 <Betty> maybe I should leave and just come back. Hope that can fix it
08:50:22 <Recrystallizing> The interruption in surface activity can be as short as seconds (Steamboat), a minute (Grand), minutes (Lone Star), or hours (Union)
08:50:52 <Recrystallizing> But the intervening quiet period is typicall multiples longer than the intervals between eruptive episodes.
08:51:29 <ynpvisitor115> Do you see a Lion series the same as bursts?
08:51:50 <Recrystallizing> That was the basis of my argument. Its the same process (heat/water imbalance causing a sudden and temporary stalling of the eruption) but on different time scales. Obviously not all geysers fit that exactly.
08:52:00 <Recrystallizing> No, other way around, I see Grand's bursts as series behavior.
08:52:48 <Recrystallizing> I actually defined all of it as series behavior, with the large scale being referred to as *cyclical series behavior* (ie, a series of eruptive episodes occuring cyclically/periodically)
08:53:08 <Jake> CraigC still here?
08:53:19 <Recrystallizing> I forget where I put that paper. I never did finish it... I was interested in sending it out for community peer review...
08:55:36 <LindaGp> Depression eruption https://youtu.be/E70kJXWlkGU
08:57:22 <ynpvisitor115> Aurum window open?
08:57:59 <Jake> CraigC, I've wonder if there's a good vantage point for Steamboat in the hills SE of Norris: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.722041,-110.6983977,3a,77.9y,167.18h,99.77t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s_N-ULIqf0rI9GZ4gL2kVRQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
08:58:47 <Jake> you'd have to be OK with serious Yellowstone bushwhack off-trail to find one though even though it's a short distance, it can be hellacious
08:59:02 <Dave from B™> Jake, weven if you stpped 10 yards from the road in that area I bet there is a good "seat"
08:59:26 <Recrystallizing> Odd example stretching the defintions: Castle between minors and majors
08:59:43 <Jake> sure, I'd be looking for maximum view of the water column / photo op spot
09:00:48 <Recrystallizing> Its kind of the same thing, it just gets stuck. I think the follow up major is just the one that was supposed to happen last time when it aborted and we just call them minors. But I think in many geysers the difference between minor and major involves a fundamental difference in the eruption itself. Where as Castle starts out exactly the same and then just stops.
09:01:24 <Eric> You can see steam from norris at monument too, but that hill you are referring to gets in your way.
09:01:47 <Recrystallizing> (Note, for cataloging purposes I do not advocate changing terms or redefining things, I am just talking because I think too much and find the different behaviors of geysers to be fascinating to try to describe)
09:02:23 <Katie> I appreciate food for thought. :)
09:03:53 <Eric> I never noticed the old roads there before: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norris+Geyser+Basin/@44.7213754,-110.7129786,447m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351d998c7645db1:0xbc4781021f463d55!8m2!3d44.7262352!4d-110.7042812
09:04:07 <Eric> You can see 2 different alignments of the roads through norris
09:04:25 <Recrystallizing> I just want to be clear that while I have positions in this topic I dont expect to "win" anything. I am curious what others think. My positions as they stand are from discussions with Rocco, the Sputs, and a couple others
09:07:19 <Eric> You are right Jake, that Mt. top SE of SB would be cool to view from: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norris+Geyser+Basin/@44.7258345,-110.7034299,120a,35y,177.94h,77.92t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351d998c7645db1:0xbc4781021f463d55!8m2!3d44.7262352!4d-110.7042812
09:08:09 <Eric> FYI, that is Gibbon Hill
09:08:24 <Katie> RecrystallizingInPA, I enjoy the discussions. My knowledge/experience level doesn't allow me to contribute beyond asking the obvious questions, but I enjoy the discussions and learning from them.
09:10:06 <ynpvisitor115> Eric I believe the old road went right by Monarch
09:12:16 <ynpvisitor115> Caastle
09:14:40 <Eric> 115, It looks like there were 2 different road beds in their. They both merged at minute geyser: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norris+Geyser+Basin/@44.7243249,-110.7068592,572a,35y,177.94h/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351d998c7645db1:0xbc4781021f463d55!8m2!3d44.7262352!4d-110.7042812

09:15:56 <LindaG1> Redid video had cut off a minute
09:16:46 <Dave from B™> Minute Geyser was a dropoff or pickup point for stagecoach tours
09:17:21 <Dave from B™> they were dropped off at one point, walked the basin with a guide and then were picked up at another point
09:22:01 <Eric> Nice bursts from Castle
09:23:47 <LindaG> Eric, arent they pulsing jets 😉
09:24:45 <Cuprous> consecutive spikes?
09:25:12 <LindaG> 😊
09:26:18 <LindaG> Bbl

09:42:19 <Betty> glad William got Aurum
09:42:36 <Betty> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/06112020/309.jpg
09:42:46 <Dave from B™> Nice, I have a brother in law who lives in Racine
09:42:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Faisy
09:42:50 <Eric> I hear nice things about that state, but never have been there.
09:43:23 <Eric> ns at 941 Kevin
09:43:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good cheese and bratwurst.
09:43:27 <Forestbewithyou> yea
09:43:30 <Eric> ahh, in basin got it
09:43:45 <Eric> Coop & Lori Got it!
09:44:29 <Eric> William is fast!
09:44:32 <Dave from B™> I didn
09:44:38 <Eric> Aurum at 920, Turban at 926
09:44:54 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize Lori knew there was other geyser basins besides Norris
09:45:00 <Dave from B™> were*
09:45:04 <Betty> I just thought the same, Eric!
09:45:05 <Eric> Hahaha
09:45:19 <Betty> lol, Dave
09:45:25 <Eric> He must have ran between them Betty
09:45:42 <ynpvisitor115> before SB few noticed Norris
09:46:18 <Eric> I always considered in the lonely basin...always quiet and very few visitors.
09:46:49 <ynpvisitor115> tour buses changed that
09:47:00 <Dave from B™> 115, very true. I wonder how many people will remain after SB goes back to sleep
09:47:52 <ynpvisitor115> People came in the 90s when Ledge and Dark Cavern were active and echinus was predicted
09:49:22 <Dave from B™> Yeah. Echinus was quite the show in its heyday
09:49:45 <Dave from B™> I think it was probably the first geyser I saw besides OF
09:49:51 <ynpvisitor70> need bleachers around Whirligig!
09:49:55 <ynpvisitor9> Riverside is empty
09:50:10 <Forestbewithyou> I saw daisy before old faithful when I went for the first time in 2017
09:50:10 <Betty> hope it becomes active again, I never saw Echinus
09:50:25 <Forestbewithyou> I actaulyl saw both daisy and then grand while running to OF
09:50:37 <Forestbewithyou> daisy we waited and grand while running
09:50:42 <ynpvisitor115> one of the first I saw but I saved the UGB for last on my second trip
09:51:06 <ynpvisitor9> Riverside erupts from a full pool right
09:51:07 <ynpvisitor115> Echinus
09:51:25 <Betty> pool, 9?
09:51:36 <ynpvisitor70> yes, Riverside overflows for 2 - 2.5 hours prior to erupting
09:51:37 <ynpvisitor9> KorbenC here, at Riverside, it is empty
09:51:45 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
09:51:50 <ynpvisitor70> it's good to get the start of overflow time!
09:52:02 <Forestbewithyou> It has to overflow the side of the cone
09:52:21 <Forestbewithyou> the seat
09:52:21 <ynpvisitor70> it's like a mini-eruption
09:52:22 <Forestbewithyou> part
09:52:25 <Forestbewithyou> I thinl
09:53:01 <Betty> no water overflowing, Korben?
09:53:10 <ynpvisitor9> Nada
09:53:18 <ynpvisitor9> Can't even see water
09:53:21 <ynpvisitor115> R likely has erupted recently
09:53:22 <Eric> Then we must have missed it
09:53:42 <Forestbewithyou> yea
09:53:44 <ynpvisitor9> Ok, off to grand afain
09:53:47 <Forestbewithyou> thats what I think
09:53:49 <ynpvisitor70> or the overnight time was wrong
09:53:52 <Dave from B™> Morning KC. Time to go to another gesyer:)
09:53:52 <Forestbewithyou> good luk with grand
09:54:13 <Betty> how are F&M?
09:56:25 <Eric> After much analysis, I think this rock outcropping is the best socially distant site to watch SB from :-P https://www.google.com/maps/place/Norris+Geyser+Basin/@44.717545,-110.7076141,89a,35y,221.44h,74.01t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351d998c7645db1:0xbc4781021f463d55!8m2!3d44.7262352!4d-110.7042812
09:56:43 <Eric> If you can figure out how to get up there.
09:58:49 <ynpvisitor115> I love how G maps has Black Growler plotted over there
10:00:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow. Perry Mason music came up on me quickly. Time to drive
10:01:33 <Katie> Came on me quickly, too. I feel like I just got here. :) Happy driving!
10:01:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks Katie
10:03:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have I been missing something at Zion? https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/49994811828/in/dateposted-public/
10:04:14 <Eric> ghosts in zion?
10:04:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looked like a ghost or a geyser.
10:04:57 <Forestbewithyou> agreed
10:05:14 <Jeff> the ghost of geyser past lol
10:05:24 <Forestbewithyou> Plume?
10:05:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do have relatives buried there....
10:05:51 <Dave from B™> It looked like a geyser for me at first
10:06:02 <Forestbewithyou> ye
10:06:04 <Forestbewithyou> yea
10:07:00 <Recrystallizing> fluffy window
10:07:15 <Recrystallizing> le fluff
10:07:31 <Recrystallizing> Grand
10:07:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :p
10:08:07 <Dave from B™> woohoo
10:08:22 <Eric> Nice
10:08:24 <Eric> Burst!
10:08:26 <Dave from B™> You barely had time to get in the saddle!
10:08:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is going to be a 500.
10:08:53 <Eric> Run Coop and Lori
10:09:41 <Jeff> this will be one of the first geysers i try and see
10:11:17 <Eric> Nice morning for a grand
10:11:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> should be nice for this afternoon.
10:14:41 <Betty> when do you arrive Jeff?
10:14:57 <Jeff> should be in west next saturday at the latest
10:15:19 <Betty> :thumbsup: :)
10:16:06 <Jeff> but gonna try and get there friday if i can
10:16:51 <Recrystallizing> Wow grand is on a roll
10:16:59 <Dave from B™> nice
10:17:37 <Recrystallizing> her highness even cooperated
10:18:49 <Eric> So much bursting!
10:28:50 <Eric> Any covid hospitalizations in West yet?
10:29:29 <Eric> Park has been open for a bit, curious if the border towns are starting to feel any medical pressure.
10:38:41 <Dave from B™> Montana is seeing 4-10 cases per day; an increase compared to a month ago
10:39:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 25% of the population?
10:39:27 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure but I don't think we have any deaths in over a month
10:39:31 <Dave from B™> haha
10:40:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Since Nevada opened the Casinos there really hasn't been an increase.
10:41:05 <Betty> we have 5.504 confirmed infected people in Germany atm
10:41:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Are you working on covid drugs Betty?
10:42:35 <Betty> 185.416 Infected since breakout, healed 171.157, deaths 8.755
10:43:46 <Betty> not me in person, Kevin
10:44:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am guessing your company is.
10:44:45 <Betty> I know we have cooperations with other companies
10:45:25 <Betty> we sure all need to work together to find something
10:46:14 <Forestbewithyou> I have to hop off to go somewhere I will hop back on when I return
10:46:20 <Forestbewithyou> so bye for now
10:46:42 <Betty> later, forest
10:46:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. It is really a pain Betty.
10:48:34 <ynpvisitor59> I'd Dave in the park today
10:48:42 <ynpvisitor59> Is Dave**
10:51:29 <ynpvisitor87> Dave's not here.
10:52:01 <Dave from B™> Nope. Dave had to stay home this weekend
10:52:22 <Betty> wb Jake
10:52:29 <Dave from B™> Becca couldn't get rid of a work shift and also has a mandatory meeting Sunday morning
10:53:12 <JarnoO> morning all
10:53:18 <Eric> Hi Jarno
10:53:34 <Betty> afternoon JarnoO
10:53:44 <JarnoO> evening Betty
10:54:05 <Betty> oh, evening, true ;-)
10:54:37 <JarnoO> :)
10:54:47 <Betty> losong sense of time on holidays
10:54:54 <Betty> losing*
10:55:03 <Jake> sorry to hear you won't make it to the park, Dave. Important time for life lessons about priorities and the importance of quitting jobs
10:56:02 <Jake> https://freakonomics.com/podcast/the-upside-of-quitting-a-freakonomics-radio-rebroadcast/
10:58:37 <ynpvisitor87> Jobs suck. That's why they have to pay you to do them.
10:58:51 <Betty> hahahaha, true
11:01:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bummer about making the park Dave. Any other plans?
11:04:25 <Dave from B™> Not right now, Kevin. My wife is having a garage sale this weekend to help clean out some of my mom's stuff. Work is getting really crazy. Retail market is really kicking out butt.
11:04:53 <Dave from B™> We vaccum pack a lot of stuff for our market and we can't keep up.
11:05:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can relate with you wife. :P Nice to hear the market is doing well though.
11:07:06 <Betty> BA
11:09:15 <Dave from B™> We found some neat things. We found an iron that my great grandmother used
11:10:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Fun. My kid found some fun stuff in the Zion house this week. There are some great old pictures.
11:11:23 <Dave from B™> We have my mom's hope chest that is full of pictures and other momentos that is in our fmaily room
11:14:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Those are nice to go through.
11:15:06 <Dave from B™> I found a letter I had written to my mom when I was a week from graduating from college
11:15:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How fun.
11:16:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are some paintings my Uncle did of Zion Park when he was a ranger.
11:16:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am hoping to find his bird pictures.
11:16:42 <Dave from B™> What kind of ranger was he? LE?
11:17:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think he kind of did it all back then. Worked the gate, did tours, and did patrols.
11:19:08 <JarnoO> 1007 Grand major? Now that's interesting :P
11:19:45 <Dave from B™> That's great. I brought my mo's desk to work. It is the original desk we used when the company began in 1978
11:20:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is cool Dave.
11:20:35 <Dave from B™> IWe have lots of room upstiars. I think we may do a historical area with things from our early years
11:21:18 <Betty> great idea, Dave
11:21:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a great idea. Histories are always fun, especially family history.
11:22:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I found some letters at my Dad's that I had written while I was in the Army.
11:24:39 <Dave from B™> My feeling is it is a waste to have these things hidden away. They need to be out to be seen
11:25:59 <LindaG> I have letters from my father who was on the navy ship at iwo Jima. He comments on it in the letters.
11:26:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We found crocheted things my Great Grand Mother did.
11:26:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Those are awesome Linda.
11:27:34 <Dave from B™> My kids have each taken a few things of moms for momentos...blankets, glasses, coats, etc
11:28:04 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, it was all matter of fact, he says one day they went on the island and then realized they'd better get the heck off because of japanese
11:28:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are things that mean a lot to one kid but not much to another.
11:28:50 <Dave from B™> Very true, Kevin
11:28:59 <LindaG> It's nice to have those things
11:30:17 <LindaG> My mother used to collect things for all 4 kids. Took us forever to empty out house
11:30:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a school teacher who had a nazi flag. He platoon came into a town and it was still flying. They removed it before they realized that the town was still in nazi hands. He said they beat tracks when the bullets started flying.
11:30:37 <LindaG> Wow
11:31:19 <JarnoO> I bet they took a lesson from that, Kevin
11:31:54 <Recrystallizing> JarnoO did you see my email?
11:31:59 <LindaG> Mom had a friend with relatives in Germany she ended up with pics of relatives in 3 Reich uniforms. I threw them out, gave me the creeps
11:32:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes they did. Amazing he still had the flag. It was a fun lesson for us. Only 20 years after the war ended.
11:32:22 <JarnoO> I did yeah. Am yet to open it since I got it while I was working on my study
11:32:44 <ynpvisitor56> What road is in the background, what direction is the webcam pointing? I seem to be lost.
11:33:28 <Recrystallizing> Cool cool just wondering
11:33:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the Myraid Group. Lower Hams is to the right of the view.
11:34:19 <ynpvisitor56> WSW?
11:34:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is the Inn and Lower Hams.
11:35:18 <ynpvisitor56> thank you
11:36:03 <ynpvisitor23> Geek central.
11:36:26 <Dave from B™> Who you calling a geek? Must be CraigC!:)
11:37:25 <Recrystallizing> We are learning things: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2404-8_reference.pdf
11:38:31 <ynpvisitor57> KorbenC caught Jewel
11:38:48 <ynpvisitor57> Dave from B™, you in the park tiday
11:38:56 <Dave from B™> Jewel not as rare as a Black Diamond:)
11:39:14 <Dave from B™> 57, no. Becca couldn't get rid of a shift so not coming this weekend
11:39:43 <Dave from B™> We will be back in June but not sure when
11:40:12 <ynpvisitor23> Jewel may file an harassment complaint.
11:40:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did anyone find out if you could buy passes at the gate?
11:43:47 <Eric2> Isn't jewel a series geyser?
11:44:10 <Betty> it is a serious series geyser
11:44:44 <Forestbewithyou> it is?
11:44:56 <Eric2> A multi-burst jetting serious series geyser?
11:45:14 <Forestbewithyou> what does serious series mean
11:45:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A choking multi-burst serious series geyser?
11:45:30 <Eric2> :-D
11:45:48 <Eric2> you forget jetting
11:46:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It means geysers gazers are getting cabin fever and going crazy forest.
11:46:20 <Eric2> Nice cloud up above biscuit overlook
11:46:33 <Betty> :-)
11:47:49 <Dave from B™> Eric, you instigator you!!
11:48:24 <Eric2> oh right, just read GoY..it is a multi-burst geyser that the number of bursts dictates it's next eruption.
11:48:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hope they get Daisy in the field.
11:48:37 <Eric2> More bursts = longer delay
11:48:51 <Forestbewithyou> interesting
11:48:58 <Forestbewithyou> makes logical sense but thats cool
11:49:06 <LindaG> What about if it spikes?
11:49:08 <Eric2> I knew it had some weird behavior, but couldn't remember :-D
11:49:34 <Eric2> That would probably choke it Linda
11:49:56 <LindaG> 😊
11:50:27 <Eric2> BTW, "burst" is used by TSB, not my word.
11:50:41 <Dave from B™> That description made me think of Plume even though bursts didn't determine its next eruption
11:51:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Isn't that short for bratwurst Eric?
11:51:18 <Eric2> Jewel is a very pretty geyser...some of PatS photos of it are stunning.
11:51:35 <Eric2> bratburst?
11:51:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> burst
11:52:08 <Eric2> I think it just means sausage...right?
11:52:20 <Eric2> wurst
11:52:28 <Eric2> aka burst
11:52:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Forest and Betty would know.
11:52:36 <ynpvisitor23> What's in a name. A geothermal event by any other name would smell a sulfurous.
11:52:37 <Betty> hahahahaha, Kevin
11:52:59 <Eric2> Hey, not all geothermal has sulfur!
11:53:08 <Betty> wurst = sausage, or as we say : worscht
11:53:35 <Eric2> currywurst, yummmm
11:53:45 <Betty> correct
11:53:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make foghorns from?
11:53:55 <Eric2> I :heart: curry ketchup!
11:55:34 <Betty> I vote for BH soon
11:57:44 <ynpvisitor56> fogs
11:58:06 <Betty> bah! Horns!
11:58:23 <ynpvisitor56> lol
11:58:39 <Betty> or fox :-D
12:00:20 <Betty> OF
12:03:31 <JarnoO> you had the same idea
12:03:58 <Eric2> Since OF is over can we look toward BH? :-D
12:04:21 <Eric2> or toward biscuit :-P
12:04:41 <Eric2> definitely cannot see unfaithful falls from here.
12:06:35 <Dave from B™> Are you comedians going to be here all week?:)
12:07:03 <Betty> me, sir?
12:07:08 <Eric2> I prefer the name comodian
12:07:29 <Eric2> what you looking at Jarno that you need a replay of?
12:07:33 <Dave from B™> Some jokes should end up in the commode but overall a funny bunch
12:07:42 <ynpvisitor23> Toilet humor. How gross.
12:08:22 <JarnoO> previous capture didn't get all of OF. Needed at least some 7 seconds more :P
12:08:25 <Dave from B™> Hey, this is clean comedy; maybe not at its finest
12:08:27 <Betty> that´s one of the best, 23
12:08:42 <Eric2> My sunday school teacher always called it bathroom humor.
12:09:55 <ynpvisitor20> pump
12:10:09 <LindaG> Are there any bathroom related geysers? Like sink or bathtub?
12:10:12 <Recrystallizing> Word from Carol Beverly is that the action of North Vent slowing down and stopping is called choking
12:10:28 <Recrystallizing> The complete cessation and resumption of activity is the restart
12:10:37 <Recrystallizing> Thats the definition I am using from now on.
12:14:09 <Eric2> drain
12:14:22 <LindaG> 😊
12:14:24 <Eric2> out in LGB
12:14:56 <Eric2> Mastif geyser does what we call a bathtub
12:16:08 <Eric2> Pump!
12:16:19 <Eric2> minor
12:16:50 <Dave from B™> There is a washing machine in the basin
12:17:01 <Dave from B™> but no toilet
12:17:24 <Eric2> washing machine?
12:17:40 <Eric2> no sink geyser?
12:17:57 <ynpvisitor23> Try washing a shirt in Chineese Spring an see what happens.
12:17:59 <Betty> queens laundry
12:18:08 <Dave from B™> No, the action in Depression
12:18:13 <Eric2> ahh, queens laundry...good one
12:18:36 <Eric2> I wanted to go out there on my last trip, but in the spring that meadow is so swampy!
12:19:08 <Eric2> I did cross it from Imperial back over to the old road, which is a cool hike
12:19:38 <ynpvisitor56> Isn't Depression manic
12:19:42 <Betty> yeah
12:19:57 <LindaG> How about plunger geyser? 🙂
12:20:06 <Eric2> From USGS on the YNM seismo - Unfortunately there may be a bigger issue than just power to the station.
12:20:27 <JarnoO> oh dear. That does not sound good
12:22:03 <LindaG> Oh cliff geyser I have actually seen that erupt.
12:22:34 <LindaG> I would I imagine most have
12:23:45 <LindaG> Although there is only one entry for it
12:24:50 <LindaG> Oh no theres more
12:32:34 <JarnoO> https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/20023.htm Null virus cases detected in the second week. Backcountry to open on June 15
12:32:44 <JarnoO> among employees, that is
12:36:05 <Eric> Nice...I hope to get to YNP backcountry this year!
12:36:22 <Eric> Maybe Dave will go too :-P
12:39:33 <Dave from B™> I hope so but why stick your tongue out at me
12:41:53 <Dave from B™> Only problem, is you like to climb too much.
12:42:06 <Dave from B™> We should go to petrified tree on Speciman Ridge
12:43:35 <JarnoO> Daisy 1230
12:43:43 <JarnoO> darn long intervals again
12:44:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I figured we had missed it.
12:44:12 <JarnoO> conditions must be very unfavorable
12:44:54 <Dave from B™> wow...those are long Daisy intervals and it looks nice to me
12:48:06 <JarnoO> afternoon Doug
12:48:33 <DougB> hi

12:58:37 <Eric> just assume 80minutes from now Coop
12:59:05 <Eric> Like around 1410 for the next one
12:59:44 <ynpvisitor25> Thanks
13:00:02 <Eric> Hope you had a nice walk over to biscuit
13:00:09 <Eric> Any notes on arty?
13:00:29 <Eric> nevermind...I see it erupted this morning
13:03:08 <Betty> researchers at Grove?
13:03:29 <ynpvisitor75.> Eric, I did
13:03:29 <JarnoO> Korben, 6m56s
13:03:34 <ynpvisitor75.> Betty, yes
13:03:47 <ynpvisitor75.> JarnoO, which puts it at?
13:04:00 <JarnoO> 1h19m interval
13:04:03 <JarnoO> ±5m
13:04:19 <ynpvisitor75.> Thanks very much
13:04:38 <ynpvisitor75.> So 1409?
13:04:39 <JarnoO> Next Lion @ 1411±5m, if series continues
13:04:43 <Betty> hi Korben. Say hi to William from me if you see him :-)
13:05:04 <ynpvisitor75.> Betty, I have seen him everywhere, I will tell him
13:05:12 <Betty> thx
13:05:25 <ynpvisitor75.> JarnoO, thanks
13:06:08 <JarnoO> (though when in doubt, just use 1h20m±10m, that'll capture most, if not all, post-initial Lion)
13:06:35 <JarnoO> and then 1h05m±10m for any follow-up Lions and 20m±10m for first eruption after minor
13:06:48 <Forestbewithyou> wow thats some nice math
13:10:35 <Betty> that´s Lion, Forest :-)
13:18:10 <Dave from B™> Missing 18.181818% of our staff today. I'll be back. I'm the lunch relief crew in the market
13:18:13 <Forestbewithyou> yea
13:18:28 <JarnoO> cya Dave
13:18:34 <Forestbewithyou> Little cub
13:18:46 <Forestbewithyou> unless it is a continuation of the last one
13:20:39 <ynpvisitor13> Was checking on open campgrounds, this was at the end of the info about what and when stuff opens. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOTnxfR8Fko Who knew there was a video on how to poop in the woods?
13:21:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Do the bears watch it?
13:26:47 <ynpvisitor13> Cactus Kevin, I don't think they need to.
13:29:23 <Betty> Forestbewithyou, it was a new one on LC
13:29:50 <Forestbewithyou> ok well I didn't log it
13:29:52 <Forestbewithyou> oh well
13:29:56 <Betty> about every 30 min for a few minutes
13:30:09 <Betty> I logged it
13:30:28 <Forestbewithyou> ok sounds good
13:31:24 <Forestbewithyou> I realized after I sent that I was looking at CST and I was like well it could be the same eruption
13:32:52 <Betty> Craig was at Steamboat this morning
13:33:16 <JarnoO> people with vests off of boardwalk. Appear to have buckets with them
13:33:37 <Forestbewithyou> what are they doing
13:34:10 <JarnoO> no idea, but those vests make it look like they know what they're doing
13:34:13 <Betty> looking for trash
13:34:21 <Forestbewithyou> yea
13:34:24 <Forestbewithyou> probably
14:17:20 <JarnoO> hm. Lion be slacking
14:17:47 <Forestbewithyou> Or it just is sleeping
14:17:49 <Forestbewithyou> for now
14:18:15 <Recrystallizing> Its done bursting. ;)
14:18:21 <Recrystallizing> Toodles everyone. I am outtie!
14:18:28 <Forestbewithyou> what was your prediction Jarno
14:18:28 <Eric> ut oh, Lion is dormant!
14:18:32 <Eric> Cya Ryan
14:18:33 <JarnoO> cya Ryan
14:18:36 <Forestbewithyou> or hibernating
14:18:40 <JarnoO> Forest, 1411±5m
14:18:51 <Forestbewithyou> well
14:18:53 <Recrystallizing> rut roh! rits read raggy!
14:19:11 <Eric> I suggested Coop come back around 1410 :-P
14:19:31 <Eric> It's still "around" 1410
14:19:47 <Forestbewithyou> at what point does it now become around
14:19:51 <Eric> Nice thickness to YNR
14:19:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is out having a beer with Aurum.
14:20:18 <Eric> ohh, I would be sitting at doublet right now for sure
14:20:30 <Eric> 5h into aurum and time for a second lion in series
14:20:53 <Eric> It doesn't look like doublet has a bench anymore :-(
14:21:02 <Eric> Did they remove the lion benches too?
14:21:06 <JarnoO> Lion
14:21:07 <Eric> Lion
14:21:29 <Forestbewithyou> heyo
14:21:44 <Eric> oh no, there is the bench :-D
14:22:03 <JarnoO> looks outstanding for a 1h28m interval
14:22:33 <Eric> someone is even standing on it
14:23:00 <Eric> Pretty nice that william is out there with Cooop
14:23:06 <Eric> I guess lori took off
14:23:47 <ynpvisitor64> Eric, yes, William and i are at Aurum
14:24:00 <Forestbewithyou> nice
14:24:01 <Eric> Nice! I assume it looks hot!
14:24:20 <ynpvisitor64> Ish
14:24:23 <Forestbewithyou> lol
14:24:30 <ynpvisitor64> :p
14:24:36 <Eric> 5h from the last, so it should be soon
14:24:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Chickens are hungry...
14:24:51 <ynpvisitor64> Hopefully we will get another Lion before geand
14:24:54 <Forestbewithyou> you better go feed them
14:24:56 <ynpvisitor64> Kevin L™ 🌵, adios
14:25:24 <Eric> I can't imagine aurum waiting much longer with how consistent it's been
14:26:04 <ynpvisitor18> speaking of geand. I did not know it had majors.
14:26:16 <Eric> what are those people doing at sponge?
14:26:17 <Forestbewithyou> it doesnt
14:26:36 <ynpvisitor18> It does now, it is on gt
14:26:37 <Forestbewithyou> oh I see
14:26:41 <Forestbewithyou> yea
14:27:05 <Eric> All grands are majors, Turbans are sergeants and vents or privates.
14:27:06 <Forestbewithyou> I mean its a major geyser
14:27:07 <Forestbewithyou> lol
14:27:15 <Forestbewithyou> that too Eric
14:27:20 <Eric> It's the military platform
14:27:45 <Jeff> if grand is a major does that make steamboat a general?
14:27:46 <JarnoO> Next Lion, should it continue, @ 1528±5m. 3m50s (1h08m), wc start @ 1420:58
14:27:56 <Eric> Yes Sir!
14:27:59 <ynpvisitor64> JarnoO, thx
14:28:17 <Forestbewithyou> No it makes steamboat a commander in cheif
14:28:23 <JarnoO> Daisy 1426 :)
14:28:28 <Jeff> eric the question then becomes how many stars lol
14:28:44 <Eric> ohhh, good question
14:28:58 <Eric> 5 stars
14:29:13 <ynpvisitor18> Haven't you all heard, using major to describe an eruption is politically incorrect. No one geysers is any more important then any other geyser. The new norm.
14:29:32 <Eric> Those poor people sitting out there looking at their GT app and saying, "This app said it would erupt now" :-(
14:29:37 <ynpvisitor78> If Corporal is Tardy does it get busted to Private.
14:29:43 <JarnoO> Then does that make Waimangu a field marshal?
14:29:45 <Forestbewithyou> yea
14:29:57 <Forestbewithyou> well yes but it is a dead field marshal
14:30:04 <Forestbewithyou> same with excelsior
14:30:09 <Forestbewithyou> i guess
14:30:10 <Forestbewithyou> maybe
14:30:31 <Forestbewithyou> actually maybe we should demote it instead
14:31:08 <Eric> retired
14:31:16 <Forestbewithyou> oh thats better
14:31:18 <Forestbewithyou> I like that
14:31:33 <Forestbewithyou> waimangu is just dead tho
14:31:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy just had a sub 2h interval.
14:31:49 <JarnoO> I'd rate Excelsior an admiral of the fleet
14:31:52 <ynpvisitor18> All imperialistic geysers will be de-funded.
14:33:11 <ynpvisitor64> When did Bee go eratic
14:33:15 <ynpvisitor6> I am going to guess that a gazer at Aurum is telling people it is imminent
14:33:36 <Jeff> my guess william and korben are there
14:33:38 <ynpvisitor6> People seem to be moving in packs on geyser hill
14:33:39 <Eric> Both of them probably are :-D
14:33:49 <ynpvisitor64> Did bee switch to long intervals late 2018????? KorbenC here
14:33:54 <Eric> I think more likely to see aurum then BH right now
14:34:01 <Forestbewithyou> yea
14:34:06 <Forestbewithyou> Eric
14:34:08 <Forestbewithyou> I agree
14:34:15 <Forestbewithyou> as for beehive
14:34:18 <Forestbewithyou> I dont know
14:34:25 <Betty> they are at Aurum
14:34:25 <ynpvisitor64> Do you have a month on beehive switch to long intervals
14:34:28 <Eric> and BH is "predicted" for right now.
14:34:45 <Eric> Sometime between January and December Coop
14:35:15 <ynpvisitor78> Windows are made to be broken.
14:35:25 <Forestbewithyou> umm not quite
14:35:34 <Eric> ok Jake :-P
14:35:47 <Eric> Pump!
14:35:51 <Eric> looks like a major
14:36:01 <ynpvisitor18> Riverside is in window, but no one seems to care about poor old Riverside.
14:36:12 <Jeff> taking bets on which is gonna erupt first between aurum and bh
14:36:25 <ynpvisitor18> Pump, you loose
14:36:28 <Eric> Riverside?
14:36:31 <Forestbewithyou> it is?
14:36:35 <Forestbewithyou> I dont think so
14:37:04 <Eric> NPS must know something we don't
14:37:11 <Eric> I assume it's IE right now
14:37:15 <Forestbewithyou> their prediction isnt now tho
14:37:16 <Forestbewithyou> maybe
14:37:24 <Forestbewithyou> or it just went
14:37:31 <Eric> Coop, you here a radio call for riverside?
14:37:57 <Forestbewithyou> he might not still be here
14:38:29 <Eric> Pump!
14:40:00 <Eric> I think if the webcam could see riverside erupt, the cam and it's watchers would care a lot more.
14:40:05 <ynpvisitor115> Riverside went sometime before 0949 per KC post here. Now would be right in the window.
14:40:43 <ynpvisitor115> He mentioned it long before William's post but did not log it to GT
14:40:45 <Eric> Well, I don't think NPS would change their prediction to 20:00 unless they had a time.
14:41:48 <JarnoO> Aurum
14:41:48 <JarnoO> .
14:41:49 <JarnoO> .
14:41:49 <JarnoO> .
14:41:58 <Eric> Woot!
14:42:15 <JarnoO> did Korben mention in what state Riverside was, like empty, in steam or something/
14:42:28 <JarnoO> ?
14:42:28 <Eric> pool was empty
14:42:45 <LindaG> Aurum
14:43:02 <Eric> Nice aurum
14:43:03 <LindaG> Nice
14:43:23 <Eric> I am guessing Grand then BH
14:43:28 <LindaG> Nice and clear
14:43:48 <JarnoO> hm... probably went at ≤30m prior to Korben's arrival
14:43:58 <JarnoO> at least ≤30m*
14:44:17 <JarnoO> or is ≤40m more a better guess?
14:44:27 <ynpvisitor18> Well, enjoy
14:44:36 <JarnoO> cya #18
14:46:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It knows. :P
14:47:09 <JarnoO> we did get a capture for you, so no worries :)
14:47:48 <ynpvisitor78> That's a nice grey bowl BH sits in. Has a rim all around.
14:47:59 <ynpvisitor64> Riverside went
14:48:12 <ynpvisitor64> Head it over radio about 30 minutes ago
14:48:13 <Forestbewithyou> interesting'
14:48:27 <Forestbewithyou> ok
14:48:28 <ynpvisitor64> JarnoO, what is your next lion predict
14:48:30 <Forestbewithyou> good to know
14:48:33 <Forestbewithyou> Thanks Korben
14:48:38 <ynpvisitor64> Yup
14:48:52 <JarnoO> Next Lion, should it continue, @ 1528±5m. 3m50s (1h08m), wc start @ 1420:58
14:49:05 <ynpvisitor64> Thanks
14:49:43 <JarnoO> Korben, would you mind logging your Riverside observation this morning and the radio call as well? It'd be nice to have some time for it, and your 0949 would be helpful too
14:49:51 <JarnoO> 0949 note*
14:50:04 <Eric> Try logging it with FRS as observer if you hear it...thanks :-D
14:50:13 <JarnoO> ^
14:51:30 <ynpvisitor78> focus Daniel san
14:53:07 <Eric> log on, log off
14:55:58 <Forestbewithyou> I am going for a wal
14:56:00 <Forestbewithyou> walk
14:56:03 <Forestbewithyou> be back soon
14:56:27 <JarnoO> cya Forest
14:58:17 <Craig M> Hola
14:58:25 <JarnoO> afternoon CraigM
14:58:47 <Betty> hi Craig M
14:59:06 <Dave from B™> I say 4 Grands before BH
14:59:17 <Eric> Hey Craig
14:59:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Done fishing Dave?
14:59:40 <Dave from B™> It's crazy man
14:59:59 <Eric> BTW, we are aware of the entry issues with BrandonC and his MAJOR moniker on everything. We will reach out to him soon to help him correct these.
15:00:46 <ynpvisitor64> There were just two conewalkers
15:01:02 <Forestbewithyou> where
15:01:06 <ynpvisitor64> One stuck his hand into ear spring
15:01:15 <Forestbewithyou> thats just stupid
15:01:16 <JarnoO> huh? When?
15:01:17 <Forestbewithyou> firstly
15:01:27 <Forestbewithyou> and how did that feel
15:01:28 <ynpvisitor64> JarnoO, 10 minutes I'd say
15:01:33 <Forestbewithyou> oh man
15:01:39 <Forestbewithyou> yea
15:01:44 <Forestbewithyou> I agree with Jarno
15:01:49 <ynpvisitor64> Lol, IDk. They were telling at us claimingwe were attacking them
15:01:50 <Forestbewithyou> Lets check the replay
15:01:56 <ynpvisitor64> Enjoy the show
15:01:58 <Forestbewithyou> umm
15:02:01 <Forestbewithyou> did they get burned
15:02:07 <Forestbewithyou> because ear spring is hot
15:02:10 <Forestbewithyou> right
15:02:31 <Craig M> ear spring is one of the hotter springs on that hill
15:02:44 <Forestbewithyou> and if they stuck their hand in it
15:02:55 <Forestbewithyou> that must mean that they burnt it because it is at boiling right
15:03:00 <Forestbewithyou> it is a boiling spring
15:03:01 <JarnoO> webcam didn't capture it. It was admiring Aurum and Beehive at the time
15:03:07 <Craig M> maybe they learned something
15:04:29 <Forestbewithyou> I hope they burnt their hands
15:04:37 <Forestbewithyou> and need a metric crap ton of neosporin
15:04:50 <Forestbewithyou> because then mother nature did some payback
15:05:42 <Forestbewithyou> well I am actually going to go for a walk now
15:08:18 <LindaG> Geez they dont know boiling water when they see it?
15:08:38 <JarnoO> "OooOoOOo, bubbles!"
15:08:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Same idiots pet bison.
15:09:41 <LindaG> JarnoO, 😊
15:09:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, yup
15:09:59 <JarnoO> I bet those people are only used to bubbling of some carbonated water - it be a coke, 7Up, Sprite, cassis, whatever
15:10:18 <LindaG> I guess people dont understand that it's actually boiling
15:10:34 <JarnoO> nope
15:10:38 <Craig M> Look son! I found where mountain dew comes from!
15:10:42 <JarnoO> haha
15:10:45 <LindaG> Just bubbling
15:11:11 <JarnoO> *sticks hand in Ear* "AAAAAAH, FffFFffFUuuU!"
15:11:41 <Craig M> "Wow mountain dew comes out from the earth BOILING hot!"
15:11:48 <JarnoO> :)
15:11:56 <Betty> lol
15:12:26 <JarnoO> would've somewhat "liked" it in a sinister sense if that hand induced an eruption
15:12:44 <Craig M> so much skin oil it changes the water chemistry
15:12:54 <JarnoO> we'd probably be on the Hill more than anywhere in the basin for long
15:13:07 <Dave from B™> Now, it's time to blow this popsicle stand. Have a great evening everyone!
15:13:17 <JarnoO> cya Dave, enjoy yours too
15:13:20 <LindaG> Dave from B™, ye, enjoy
15:13:27 <Craig M> "everyone's a gangster until Ear Spring starts throwing cinder blocks"
15:13:28 <LindaG> *bye
15:13:36 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat to some oldies
15:14:03 <JarnoO> I wonder how much would still be left in the plumbing after 2018
15:14:15 <Craig M> Probably not much
15:14:22 <LindaG> Huh NJ lifted its stay at home order. I'm still at home.
15:14:39 <Craig M> On the capture it looked like a champagne cork popped
15:14:48 <Betty> bye Dave
15:14:55 <JarnoO> very gray water too
15:15:08 <JarnoO> probably due to lighting, though
15:15:47 <JarnoO> definitely not my water of choice if I only had hot spring water to drink from
15:16:30 <ynpvisitor63> It boils at a mere 190 degrees up there. What's the problem ?
15:17:42 <JarnoO> true, yeah. Boiling is probably better. Not if it has just erupted, though
15:21:05 <Eric> OF ie
15:27:29 <JarnoO> Lion's due
15:36:09 <JarnoO> Turban 1533
15:36:37 <Forestbewithyou> oH good I didn't miss grand
15:36:42 <Forestbewithyou> that run was torture
15:37:17 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy Lion, if it hasn't ended its series already.
15:37:34 <Forestbewithyou> bye Jarno
15:38:19 <Forestbewithyou> I think I am going to go as well for now
15:38:20 <Betty> night Jarno
15:38:22 <Forestbewithyou> takj to you all later
15:38:30 <Forestbewithyou> I will probably be back later
15:53:12 <ynpvisitor113> Dig on geyserhill
15:53:14 <ynpvisitor113> Btw
15:53:21 <ynpvisitor113> Dog not dig
15:53:45 <ynpvisitor63> Dogs do dig.
16:00:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released.
16:06:31 <Eric> so Grand around 1623
16:07:59 <ynpvisitor103> 29 minute Turban seem kind of long
16:08:07 <Betty> thx Kevin L™ 🌵
16:14:19 <ynpvisitor63> Something disturbin about Turbin. Vent your frustration then wave when happy.Actually wave before Vent.
16:16:04 <LindaG> Grand
16:16:05 <LindaG> .
16:16:10 <LindaG> ..
16:16:32 <LindaG> .
16:17:15 <ynpvisitor68> Just walked back to computer and, oh boy, second grand of they day. Better than I do when I'm in the basin.
16:17:18 <ynpvisitor63> Yikes, spikes !
16:18:02 <LindaG> 😃
16:18:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How did it avoid OF window?
16:20:56 <LindaG> Sneaky
16:25:43 <LindaG> 2nd
16:25:43 <Betty> 2nd
16:25:50 <LindaG> .
16:26:03 <ynpvisitor63> Second burst better then the first.
16:26:20 <LindaG> Betty, Wow were even
16:27:39 <Betty> :thumbsup:LindaG, :)
16:28:53 <ynpvisitor63> Higher and shorter at the same time.
16:32:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now for BH
16:38:00 <LindaG> Go BH
16:39:13 <LindaG> Daisy
16:39:16 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy not failing
16:46:24 <ynpvisitor92> looks like social distancing is no longer happening at Old faithful
16:52:35 <ynpvisitor44> hard to tell how many of the close groups are family units
16:54:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> so will SB go tonight?
16:54:24 <KevinS> GO STEAMBOAT, no
16:54:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave isn't there. It might
16:54:54 <KevinS> And not tomorrow either
16:55:24 <ynpvisitor115> I'd be there tomorrow if I was in the park
16:55:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> it hasnt had many shorts, so after tomorrow is more likely
16:56:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> agree it will be watched closely. not sure anyone will stay out tonight tho
16:58:57 <KevinS> If it goes tomorrow, I will give up on the loggers. But based on those, I for now think no SB today or tomorrow. But what do I know.
17:10:22 <Betty> hi William
17:12:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
17:17:58 <ynpvisitor34> Who is this Dave you speak of who has magical powers?:)
17:20:35 <LindaG> His magical powers come from fish😉 dont tell
17:25:20 <LindaG> Hey jeff
17:25:29 <Jeff> hey linda
17:32:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ryan killed it
17:33:41 <ynpvisitor88> There is a drone above Lion
17:33:54 <ynpvisitor88> Now Aurum
17:35:45 <Eric> Really?
17:36:26 <ynpvisitor88> Yes, we are at Lion. It just headed down basin
17:36:45 <Eric> might want to radio that into the VEC
17:37:03 <Eric> I assume they are still manning the radios there.
17:37:51 <ynpvisitor88> Tried that, but no response. We'll keep trying.
17:39:41 <Eric> bird or drone zooming by camera?
17:40:05 <Jeff> i walk away for 5 minutes and miss a drone
17:43:58 <ynpvisitor88> It just came back over the Inn.
17:45:05 <Eric> Probably someone too lazy to walk from their car out to the BW
17:46:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I sent you phone numbers 88
17:47:29 <Eric> Kevin knows all the important #s :-D
17:47:38 <Eric> anemone
17:47:39 <Eric> dual
17:52:12 <Craig M> you know. if you were in the montana part of yellowstone, it's perfectly legal to shoot drones out of the sky
17:52:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Oh, sounds fun!
17:55:59 <KevinS> Craig M, except it is illegal to discharge a firearm anywhere in the park
17:56:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Darn. They take the fun out of everything!
17:57:03 <KevinS> I have a conceal carry and have to check all laws for everywhere I travel as each state is different.
17:57:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Especially now!
17:57:26 <ynpvisitor36> Push at Dep, lots of overflow, then it dropped about eight inches, bubble crash??
17:57:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did it have bubbles?
17:58:11 <ynpvisitor36> Lol, noope
17:59:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bubble crash is where you have the overflow and then lots of bubbles and then it crashes.
18:00:26 <Betty> bh looks pretty dead
18:00:33 <Craig M> KevinS i did some searching too, looks like my MN conceal and carry won't work in wyoming
18:03:05 <KevinS> Craig M, Yes, I run into same problem. But I can carry in WY. But I do not conceal in the park. Use the lock box in vehicle. It is not legal to conceal in any Federal building. That means even the bathrooms are no go in the park.
18:05:06 <KevinS> Your RV is a building on Fedral land but considered your domain, so they are legal for tent or RV.
18:07:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bathrooms are no go? I thought that was why they built them.
18:20:59 <Betty> Nice Lion splash
18:21:46 <Betty> sure Aurum went during OF :-(
18:22:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :p
18:22:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Short interval
