06:21:43 <KorbenC> no NG, but looks like you can see it boiling at 618
06:58:54 <Kat> Morning
07:00:27 <KorbenC> Hi Kat
07:01:54 <Kat> Hi
07:02:55 <KorbenC> OF
07:04:01 <Kat> My transporter is working Haha
07:08:13 <KorbenC> haha
07:08:29 <KorbenC> yan if/when you get here, can you grab that OF? I am working on something
07:10:38 <Kat> Riverside
07:10:42 <JarnoO> Atlantic 10/20 (1: Cuba), 20/20 (2: SE Cape Verde), 10/10 (3: Texas coast); Eastern Pacific TD Seven-E forecast to not persist for much longer, 70/90 (1: just below TS strength); Central Pacific tracking Seven-E, 70/90 (1: Eastern Pacific #1)
07:12:52 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno, thanks, Can you grab that OF?
07:12:53 <JarnoO> morning all
07:13:44 <JarnoO> sure, but you'll have to get all the other OF's for at least this morning as I really want that article to be done with
07:14:34 <Kat> Hi
07:15:22 <KorbenC> OK
07:15:44 <JarnoO> Kat, in case Beehive goes during your shift, could you please keep Giantess in view? It's been having boiling episodes around Beehive's eruption, including an estimated 4-5 feet one at the southeastern edge yesterday
07:17:37 <Kat> Sure - no problem
07:31:02 <KorbenC> JarnoO, also FYI Lion had a few good roars which failed to start it at about 0600, so it ended its series a few hours ago
07:31:40 <JarnoO> going to be a good day for an afternoon series I think. Probably around 1300 to 1500 for initial
07:37:40 <KorbenC> there was also some OK looking NG action, you could see the boiling :)
07:41:58 <Kat> OT
07:47:38 <KorbenC> Aurum 0744
07:47:52 <KorbenC> Bulger is a minor
07:48:00 <CraigC> Howdy
07:48:07 <KorbenC> Hey Craig
07:48:21 <Kat> Hi Craig!
07:48:24 <KorbenC> nice job on another boat
07:48:29 <CraigC> Hey Cooper
07:48:34 <Kat> Missed aurum :(
07:53:23 <CraigC> I am headed back to great fountain, got overflow, notified people in ugb, gonna go watch it now
07:53:33 <KorbenC> cya
07:53:46 <CraigC> Aurum was a nice bonus
07:54:57 <ynpvisitor107> Daisy
07:56:11 <ynpvisitor107> someone in basin got daisy
07:56:37 <KorbenC> Kat, teleporting is cheating
07:57:02 <Kat> Hahaha - do't you wish you could do that?
07:58:40 <JarnoO> I'd wish I could. I'd probably be hanging around at Shoshone or perhaps even Heart Lake with a teleporter :)
07:59:07 <KorbenC> I would love a teleporter
07:59:25 <Kat> :)
08:05:28 <Kat> 3C
08:24:57 <JarnoO> 11m
08:25:55 <JarnoO> Cistern 6 feet below inner tube per 0755 note
08:30:31 <KorbenC> nd has an afterburst while I was gone?
08:31:01 <KorbenC> Grand not nd
08:31:31 <KorbenC> I am not seeing the afterburst
08:32:39 <KorbenC> Joe, did you put the (1) in the wrong spot?'
08:45:08 <Kat> OF
08:47:23 <KorbenC> looks medium
08:50:40 <KorbenC> very short 1.933 minutes
08:51:29 <JarnoO> wouldn't call the very short. I'd say sub-1m40s is very short
08:51:46 <KorbenC> by very short I mean alot shorter than a medium :)
08:52:32 <KorbenC> Joe, I didnt see an afterburst on the 0813 Grand. Do you have a time of this afterburst?
08:54:23 <Forestbewithyou> Hello Everyone!!!
08:54:23 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
08:54:30 <JarnoO> morning Forest
08:58:03 <KorbenC> Jarno, did you see an afterburst on the 0813 Grand/
08:58:56 <Kat> Hi Forest
08:59:22 <JarnoO> I didn't. I assume Joe mistapped and entered it as an afterburst

10:07:55 <ynpvisitor76> Thanks for flagging it I don
10:08:53 <ynpvisitor76> 't know why GT often puts my bursts as afterbursts.
10:09:17 <SantaFe108(cany> Weird
10:10:51 <SantaFe108(cany> Did giantess boil at all last night and this morning?
10:11:30 <KorbenC> SantaFe108(canyon), not that we noiced. It did have a ncie boil yesterday
10:11:37 <KorbenC> just on the wrong side, lol

10:17:54 <CraigC> Thanks
10:24:59 <Hassium Avocado> Guten tag / Buenos tardes
10:25:29 <KorbenC> Hi Jimbo, thats a funny one
10:30:34 <KorbenC> Good Morning Eric
10:32:08 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Eric
10:33:23 <KorbenC> Jarno
10:33:29 <KorbenC> look at the new NHC forcast
10:33:56 <KorbenC> TD Seven-E, TD Eight E, atlantic 10/10, 10/20, 20/20
10:34:06 <KorbenC> 8E supposed to become a hurricane
10:34:12 <Forestbewithyou> oh
10:34:13 <KorbenC> I dont by it :p
10:34:28 <Eric> Hi Coop & Forest
10:34:45 <Eric> and good morning to all the rest of you :-D
10:39:01 <Eric> Wow...the wave continues on SB!
10:39:32 <Eric> Pretty interesting pattern it has fallen into.
10:40:04 <KorbenC> Eric, the wave patern like after SB is jsut dirunal.
10:40:44 <Eric> Not sure what you are talking about Coop, but I am talking about the 4.5/5.5 day wave pattern
10:41:05 <KorbenC> ah, the interval. I thought you were talking about the temp graph
10:42:30 <Eric> 9 intervals of 4.5/5.5!!!!
10:42:56 <KorbenC> yup
10:42:57 <Eric> Do we have any recorded history of it getting into this kind of pattern?
10:43:25 <KorbenC> my cycle prediction is the morning on the 24th
10:43:33 <KorbenC> so like 4.75 days
10:44:00 <KorbenC> although it might be a bit earlier, that is jsut averaged from a few predictions
10:44:33 <Eric> I think just showing up at 4.5 days is a good bet.
10:44:50 <Eric> get there early in the morning on that day and stay until dark :-D
10:45:17 <Eric> or until it goes
10:45:32 <Forestbewithyou> and then have steamboat crush all your hopes and dreams because your tired and need sleep and it goes at midnight :)
10:45:47 <KorbenC> just sleep on the platform
10:45:54 <KorbenC> I took a 2 hour nap, lol
10:46:07 <Forestbewithyou> Or get the coffee pots abrewin
10:51:21 <JarnoO> TD Seven-E 30kt. Eight-E forecast to become a somewhat minimal hurricane at 70kt
10:52:02 <JarnoO> oh, you already saw that
10:52:31 <KorbenC> :)
10:52:41 <KorbenC> or will it pull a Christina :)
10:52:46 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
10:53:59 <JarnoO> rapid intensification index has Eight-E at 20 to 25%
10:54:50 <Eric> sleeping on the BW is not allowed! You can shut your eyes for extended periods of time only :-P
10:55:03 <Forestbewithyou> thats why you need coffee
10:55:16 <Forestbewithyou> I am kidding
10:55:20 <KorbenC> Eric, OK, I rested my eyes for a few hours :P
10:55:37 <ynpvisitor64> thank you Eric
10:56:17 <JarnoO> no sleeping allowed? Then I'll say I was performing intense brain meditation
10:56:20 <Eric> You are welcome.
10:56:31 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Jarno
10:56:44 <Eric> That is allowed Jarno...just no REM
10:57:02 <ynpvisitor64> We have to choose our wording carefully
10:58:13 <Eric> Yes, there always seem to be eyes and ears here..watching, always watching.
10:58:16 <ynpvisitor64> that is why the word camping is not used for waiting on platform
10:59:20 <Eric> The NSA tracks our chat logs and gives the details to the NPS who uses it in tracking our movement.
10:59:34 <Eric> That includes eye movement!
10:59:53 <ynpvisitor64> hopefully today's Beehive will have an indy so a text can be sent
11:00:17 <JarnoO> too bad for them I have a thing called GDPR
11:00:39 <KorbenC2> haha
11:02:26 <JarnoO> is that Grotto Fountain trying a thing or two?
11:02:39 <Eric> GDPR - Good Day, Prior Rabbit?
11:02:54 <JarnoO> General Data Protection Regulation
11:04:24 <Eric> Hmmm, do I need to block this site from all GDPR protected people so they can stay safe?
11:04:41 <Eric> It's for your own protection!
11:05:04 <KorbenC2> "Trust me its for your own protection"
11:05:20 <KorbenC2> "Trust me Im a politician"
11:06:20 <JarnoO> well, that would expose this site as caring more for tracking stuff than their users. Much like several other sites based outside the EU and EEA
11:07:08 <JarnoO> "tracking stuff": things like cookies set by external parties like Facecrook
11:07:15 <JarnoO> and a few others
11:07:49 <Eric> ohhh, we only hand off tracking information to the NSA, FBI, NPS and your mom. Not FAcecrook!
11:08:18 <Eric> Just kidding for anyone who thinks I am serious :-P
11:08:22 <JarnoO> sure thing... sure thing... :P
11:08:28 <KorbenC2> :p LMAO
11:08:51 <Eric> I was serious about your mom.
11:08:59 <JarnoO> oh
11:09:03 <KorbenC2> Eric, haha, you dont even know my mom :P
11:09:09 <Katie> he he he ha ha ha
11:09:12 <KorbenC2> Jarno, you wanna grab this OF?
11:09:32 <JarnoO> you can have it
11:09:39 <KorbenC2> ok
11:09:53 <Eric> I need to invent that ...the mom cookie! Tracks you like no other.
11:10:09 <Eric> and tastes delicious!
11:10:11 <KorbenC2> Giantess Note from KevinS
11:10:13 <JarnoO> I like the Giantess note
11:10:31 <JarnoO> 5 seconds to three inches
11:10:33 <Eric> Nice to see KevinS in the park
11:10:53 <KorbenC2> Boil on the north side, that was 3 inches. Now we need it 3'
11:10:54 <JarnoO> though it was at north rim, which is a good sign
11:11:10 <Eric> how about 300ft!
11:11:26 <JarnoO> maybe I'll refrain from proposing to rename Giantess Geyser to Giantess Pool
11:11:29 <KorbenC2> Eric, can we just go up to 500 if we are letting it erupt?
11:11:46 <Eric> Sure, whatever made up height you want Coop
11:12:00 <JarnoO> 1500 feet, take it or leave it :)
11:12:10 <KorbenC2> If I count 1'' boil as an eruption then, I have seen it ie :P
11:12:26 <Eric> So is Giantess considered a pool geyser?
11:12:42 <Eric> Seems like a tiny pool for such a huge geyser.
11:13:39 <JarnoO> it's a fountain geyser, much like Morning in that regard
11:14:51 <JarnoO> Morning's pool is actually about 32 feet across, Giantess' about 31 feet. Both definitely are one of the biggies around
11:15:04 <Eric> Goats :-D
11:15:35 <Eric> From my 3 days in the Mount Margaret Wilderness this weekend.
11:15:44 <Forestbewithyou> cool!
11:15:50 <JarnoO> it loops almost perfectly
11:16:05 <JarnoO> beautiful surroundings, too
11:16:14 <Eric> Yes, it is one of the better loops google has made for me.
11:16:23 <Eric> Here is where I was Jarno:
11:16:49 <JarnoO> nice!
11:16:59 <JarnoO> morning KevinS
11:17:03 <Eric> Those mountains are Rainier, Adams, Hood & Helens
11:17:08 <Eric> Hi KevinS
11:17:34 <Eric> Can you say nice things to Giantess and make it erupt while you are standing there?
11:17:42 <KevinS> Morning all.
11:18:40 <JarnoO> am expecting Lion's initial to be somewhere in the afternoon, perhaps between about 1300 and 1500
11:18:51 <JarnoO> just for your info :)
11:18:54 <KevinS> That Giantess book was several feet wide. See
11:19:07 <KevinS> Boil
11:19:18 <Eric> phones auto correct.
11:19:36 <Eric> Nice
11:19:43 <JarnoO> I reckon you'll be staying on the Hill for a while with those boils :D
11:20:59 <KorbenC2> KevinS, nice
11:21:00 <KevinS> I’m sitting by doublet trying to catch Lion and Aurum
11:21:20 <KorbenC2> Good Job on getting an SB
11:21:24 <Eric> So does this stump look like a tree ent or what?
11:21:34 <KorbenC2> SB always makes the trip :)
11:21:47 <Eric> Congrats on the SB Kevin!
11:21:56 <JarnoO> wouldn't want to run into that at night, Eric
11:22:11 <KevinS> Eric, thanks. It was a beautiful eruption.
11:22:27 <KorbenC2> Eric, looks exactly like an Ent
11:23:42 <KevinS> Another good boil on Giantess
11:24:20 <JarnoO> now you're making me anxious about missing Giantess due to a Fluffer :P
11:24:48 <JarnoO> not that it'll go anytime soon though, even with the big boils around Beehive's eruption
11:25:21 <KorbenC2> It could :P
11:25:25 <KorbenC2> Kevin, how tall?
11:26:30 <KevinS> Maybe 4-5 inches that time. Several feet wide. Likely same as some caught on cam. You be able to see these.
11:27:24 <KorbenC2> Are we in a set of those "Giantess hot periods" or whatever they are called with lots of boiling?
11:27:26 <KorbenC2> OF
11:29:28 <KorbenC2> Jarno, can you take this one? I am gonna go find osmething to eat for lunch
11:31:53 <JarnoO> KevinS, did the boils you saw look a bit like these?, Both of these took place around Beehive's eruption (first one a few minutes before, the other one with Bee ie)
11:32:57 <JarnoO> looks like Drive switched them around - the first link was after Beehive, the second a few minutes before
11:34:11 <Eric> He is in basin Jarno, so might not have bandwidth to view your images.
11:34:48 <JarnoO> true
11:37:08 <KevinS> Can’t view. Phone barely works.
11:37:16 <JarnoO> darn
11:37:55 <KevinS> I took a picture I can share later.
11:38:05 <JarnoO> that would be helpful :)
11:38:32 <KorbenC2> KevinS, is there a way you could email it?
11:47:15 <JarnoO> now would be a perfect time for Giantess to go. Cam is down, not much wind. Luckily no snow obscuring it, though
11:47:55 <ynpvisitor31> Don't worry. If Giantess starts you have 30 min or so til the big stuff starts
11:48:35 <JarnoO> true. Preference for water, steam or mixed eruption?
11:48:54 <Katie> control window is sorta up. About 1 frame every 5 seconds
11:52:41 <Eric> Sounds like a bandwidth issue Katie
11:53:10 <Katie> Yup
11:54:02 <JarnoO> I wonder if it was a dove looking on the satnav
12:00:34 <JarnoO> Giantess 1155 note: 6-7” boil 3’ wide on north rim. Duration 5 seconds.
12:00:38 <JarnoO> 6-7” boil 3’ wide on north rim. Duration 5 seconds.
12:00:40 <JarnoO> Daisy
12:03:45 <JarnoO> those boils should pump out a bit of water, no?
12:04:27 <KorbenC2> I wouldnt think it would be enough ot drop the pool, but maybe enough to produce some noticable runoff
12:05:33 <Eric> Well, my daughters college just cancelled any in student class this fall :-(
12:05:46 <Eric> in-person classes
12:05:49 <JarnoO> I don't think the pool should necessarily drop, but I do think those boils reduce the overall weight of the water column
12:06:30 <KorbenC2> JarnoO, in TSB's book it says that those hot periods are good, but one will produce a huge amount of water which will drop the pool level, and then the eruption begins
12:06:44 <ynpvisitor104> Eric, wow.
12:07:02 <KorbenC2> Eric, my school is giving me an option to go back, but I am doing online
12:07:13 <JarnoO> reducing the weight of the column allows more superheated water turn to steam. This steam occupies a magnitudes wider area and expands quite a bit, allowing more water to be pushed out. Eventually a critical point is reached and an eruption begins
12:07:15 <Forestbewithyou> my school is still deciding
12:07:33 <Eric> Yep, no option for my daughter...closed things down. Iowa is sucking at keeping people healthy.
12:08:12 <Eric> Which makes hospitals reach capacity, which causes schools to not open even with good protection measures :-(
12:08:30 <KorbenC2> my school gave me two options 1) Full in person, masks andsocial distancing as the only measures effectively. 2) Full online where w ecan switch back. I mad ethe choice online because I can aford to work online for a while and see what happens, beucase I dont want to be the test pig :)
12:09:11 <JarnoO> and Korben, that flood of water the book mentions happens at the end of a hot period leading up to an eruption
12:09:26 <Katie> The college my niece attended last year decided months ago to reduce campus population by only having freshman and seniors on campus - or something like that. But since things worsened, I wonder if that might change.
12:09:32 <JarnoO> before that quite some water should've been pushed out of the system already
12:11:05 <KorbenC2> :thumbsup: yes, I am just hoping each of these boils is flooding some water out]
12:13:08 <Eric> Katie, Elizabeth's school did the same, only 500 students where going to be on campus with extensive testing measures in place. It was freshman and other students who needed lab/art/physical space that where invited to attend in person this fall.
12:13:40 <Eric> But they bagged that as the virus has now ramped up and their mathematical models showed not enough hospital capacity for the area.
12:14:15 <ynpvisitor104> smart choices
12:14:43 <Eric> Yep, they are students first school...luckily they can afford it.
12:15:03 <Eric> Not all schools have the luxury of not running full capacity.
12:15:23 <Eric> I bet we see quite a few small private schools go bankrupt this year.
12:15:32 <ynpvisitor104> their students will live to return, and it protects faculty and staff too
12:16:12 <Eric> Yep, lots of things to consider in the health and safety of a community.
12:16:45 <Eric> Pump!
12:17:44 <KorbenC2> My school district has plenty of money to keep people home for this entire year, yet most parents see COVID as "not a big deal" because it hasnt hit Colorado (YET)
12:19:15 <ynpvisitor104> CO has 40K cases, it's already there
12:19:43 <KorbenC2> CO is predicted to spike, we are already seeing the begining of a spike right now, we are not too the bad stuff yet according to our top experts
12:20:11 <Katie> I see the attitude that Korben has said is prevalent from friends in CO posting.
12:20:12 <JarnoO> "It didn't hit our community, so it ain't not existin'!"
12:20:19 <Eric> But colorado's new cases are staying pretty stable right now...not spiking
12:20:20 <KorbenC2> effectively :P
12:21:14 <KorbenC2> Eric, they are stable, but the postivite rate of testing went up a bit, and now we are seeing alot more testing, with alot more possitive tests = we are soon to see mroe cases
12:23:03 <JarnoO> Atlantic 20/20 (1, 2, 3); Eastern Pacific TD Seven-E and Eight-E; Central Pacific tracking Seven-E and Eight-E. Eastern Pacific hurricane warning
12:24:19 <JarnoO> aircraft investigation scheduled tomorrow morning for #3, if necessary
12:24:54 <JarnoO> no, not #3, for #1
12:26:04 <ynpvisitor56> Just look at the West Gate if you need to see why this virus will not be going anywhere but growing anytime soon.
12:26:19 <JarnoO> #1 is also forecast to move over the Gulf and make landfall over Texes regardless of development
12:26:25 <ynpvisitor56> People are in denial
12:26:38 <Eric> Yes, it's insane
12:26:56 <ynpvisitor56> Safe vacation has to be the oxymoron of 2020
12:27:48 <Eric> Yes, we were just talking about that there any way to have a safe vacation this summer with our daughter? It's seems difficult to do in a meaningful way.
12:28:14 <ynpvisitor56> I hope you’ll stay close to home
12:28:44 <Eric> Camping in the wilderness is about the only safe thing I can think of and my wife and daughter were not overly excited about that :-P
12:28:52 <JarnoO> haha
12:29:16 <ynpvisitor56> And I’d say, no, there’s not a way. Without being incredibly selfish as many Americans seem to be OK with
12:29:29 <Eric> Yes, exactly.
12:29:52 <ynpvisitor56> Wilderness camping would be it. Not many takers there
12:30:27 <Eric> Yep, just spent 3 nights in the wilderness...other than the freak wind storm in the middle of the night Friday, it was awesome!
12:31:02 <Eric> Lesson learned...don't camp on a ridgeline unless you are 100% positive there will not be a wind storm :-P
12:31:02 <KorbenC2> Hi Kevin
12:31:06 <KorbenC2> any mroe boils?
12:31:16 <JarnoO> could the cam be zoomed in on Giantess for a bit (but keep Bee in view or so)? Wind just turned in a favorable direction, so I think we are able to see some nice boils, should they occur
12:31:40 <JarnoO> thanks
12:31:52 <Eric> Social Distance!
12:31:53 <Katie> I was thinking the same thing, so...
12:31:53 <ynpvisitor56> I’m glad for you Eric. Obviously lots of people feel fine about going to Yellowstone!
12:32:11 <JarnoO> obviously it won't do anything like what KevinS saw, but that's fine... I guess
12:32:24 <Eric> Yellowstone is NOT social distancing IMHO.
12:32:25 <KevinS> About every ten minutes we get a boil. Most I’ve seen is 6-7 inches tall.
12:32:26 <KorbenC2> Well, I am paranoid and I didnt feel fine going to YNP, had a whole 2 hour discusion on how to stay safe while there, and I didnt get it there
12:32:35 <KorbenC2> when was the last one?
12:32:54 <Eric> Thanks for the updates Kevin
12:33:06 <ynpvisitor56> Once they have a confirmed outbreak in the park, maybe Sholly will change course
12:33:11 <KevinS> 3 minutes ago. Small 2”
12:33:16 <Eric> BTW, bonus points if you can see my tent in that picture :-P
12:33:20 <JarnoO> hoping that'll be improving a bit. But otherwise nice to see it somewhat active again
12:33:24 <KorbenC2> how much water is coming out Kevin?
12:33:37 <Eric> Has there been any positive covid test from an employee yet?
12:33:48 <ynpvisitor56> Yes
12:34:14 <JarnoO> is your tent the one dead-center in the picture?
12:34:18 <ynpvisitor56> But unfortunately most of park testing was delayed with Montana tests
12:34:29 <KevinS> Visitor told me he saw it boil a foot high and pushed water over the edges. I don’t see the evidence of that though.
12:34:42 <KorbenC2> Eric, nice pic
12:35:03 <JarnoO> probably was along the southern rim, as that's where we've seen some boiling too
12:35:06 <ynpvisitor56> By the time results are in, they will be fairly meaningless
12:35:30 <ynpvisitor56> Too many tests, not enough labs
12:36:01 <ynpvisitor56> Jackson is in trouble again too
12:36:50 <Eric> You would think they would have that equipment in place by now.
12:37:12 <ynpvisitor56> Only it’s the opposite Eric
12:37:19 <Eric> Also you would think that the park service would have procured testing capacity before opening.
12:37:24 <ynpvisitor56> Labs are overwhelmed
12:37:47 <ynpvisitor56> You’d think, but solid no there
12:38:16 <Eric> That is the first thing our daughters college announced before they even considered opening. Guaranteed testing capacity for continuous testing.
12:38:55 <Eric> They had those contracts in place in April or May
12:39:23 <Eric> Xanterra should have had the same requirement.
12:39:31 <Eric> and DN
12:39:50 <ynpvisitor56> Ha! Xanterra only cares about $
12:40:17 <Eric> Sure, but Sholly should have mandated it for a safe opening.
12:40:20 <ynpvisitor56> I think they only test piggybacked with NPS
12:40:52 <ynpvisitor56> Well he’s kept his VECs and campgrounds closed
12:41:22 <ynpvisitor56> It’s been very quiet from him since then
12:41:54 <Eric> I am sure there are a lot of conflicting voices and saying anything will get him in trouble. Better to do and shut up.
12:42:09 <KorbenC2> Good BH action for a minute
12:42:12 <ynpvisitor56> Except to mention that testing was delayed in MT and now park testing will be through WY
12:44:18 <ynpvisitor56> I’d love to see wastewater data for OF area
12:44:55 <KevinS> Giantess boil again
12:46:03 <Eric> Yes, I was thinking that too 56, I think yosemite just released there info.
12:47:40 <KorbenC2> yup, nice a clear
12:48:14 <Katie> Leaving desk to microwave lunch. Speaker is on max, so ding me if I need to come running.
12:48:51 <KevinS> Can you all see anything from Giantess on the cam?
12:49:21 <KorbenC2> I coud see that North rim boil on the review
12:49:28 <JarnoO> the boil I think you saw showed up as a pixel at my end at the northern rim
12:49:31 <KorbenC2> Kevin, how much water is coming from these? is it alot of water?
12:49:45 <Eric> You are really in the Aurum expect that soon!
12:50:12 <Eric> I assume you have lots of Aurum satellites bubbling now.
12:50:14 <KevinS> I’m at Aurum
12:50:21 <KorbenC2> wave
12:50:40 <KevinS> Bright blue shirt
12:50:49 <Eric> Camera is stuttering pretty hard Kevin...we are lucky to see the hill.
12:51:52 <KevinS> Aurum is very active, but I’m not good enough to judge if it is ready or not.
12:51:58 <JarnoO> oh, a darned window just opened
12:52:51 <JarnoO> now on Fluffy, so enjoy Aurum if you catch it - we likely won't while we're on OF :(
12:52:57 <Katie> Kevin will tell us if Giantess does anything (right?) and that would be an exception to Prime Directive.
12:53:17 <Eric> It's Ready Kevin....timing is right.
12:54:16 <KevinS> Giantess looks the same as since I’ve been here. Boils about every 10 minutes or so.
12:54:53 <KevinS> Lion is splashing
13:00:24 <Eric> Probably starting it's ini Kevin
13:00:33 <Eric> if they are big splashes
13:01:20 <JarnoO> I reckon we would've seen an entry already then
13:01:29 <Eric> OF ie
13:02:07 <Eric> Maybe....not everyone is quick to enter :-D
13:02:19 <JarnoO> true that
13:02:36 <Eric> It's not like a SB YNR entry :-P
13:03:02 <JarnoO> I doubt I'd even enter much while in basin. I'd most likely write them down in a notebook and dump them on GT later in the day
13:03:20 <KevinS> Bigger splashed out of lion now.
13:03:31 <JarnoO> that sounds positive
13:03:59 <JarnoO> you definitely want to hang around if those splashes sustain
13:04:04 <KorbenC2> JarnoO, always remember, dont spent the entire tame burried in your book, watch the geysers, enjoy them. Dont see the start then spend the 5 minutes of Beehive writing down notes about the buildup
13:04:55 <JarnoO> I'll figure out what works best for me, Korben :)
13:05:27 <JarnoO> I do have an atomic watch, so with a little luck I can write down start times to the second
13:05:39 <KorbenC2> Just some advice, I made that mistake on my first day (I always do) I see the start then start writting down notes and then by the time I know it its over :)
13:05:55 <Eric> My watch is made out of atoms too!
13:07:18 <JarnoO> I would have to sync it up manually every morning, though, as it can only do that automatically within a 1000km (or was it 500km?) radius around DCF77 (a radio station in Germany which also broadcasts caesium-calibrated time)
13:08:48 <KorbenC2> :thumbsup:
13:10:07 <KorbenC2> I still feel bad for walking up to Grand and watching it after SB and going "wow, you are such a puny little thing" :P Perspective
13:12:03 <Eric> Most stations in the US broadcast atomic time too Jarno
13:12:09 <Eric> not sure about compatibility.
13:12:29 <Eric> Nowdays, if your watch has GPS, it just gets the time from the satellite
13:12:51 <JarnoO> my watch has been specifically set to receive DCF77 time, which can't be changed through some button pressing
13:13:23 <JarnoO> thus it won't listen to other frequencies
13:13:53 <KevinS> Last few Giantess boils have been barely there. Calming down I guess.
13:14:06 <JarnoO> perhaps there's some gimmick available which translates US frequencies to DCF77 frequencies - that would be grand
13:14:20 <Eric> never mind on radio stations here...
13:20:20 <KevinS> Lion is ready
13:20:30 <KorbenC2> Lion ini
13:30:42 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1435±5m if series continues. 6m04s, very weak duration
13:34:55 <KorbenC2> Is cam down for anyone else?
13:35:19 <KevinS> I’m giving Aurum 15 more minutes before I head to Grand.
13:35:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum in 20m!
13:35:42 <Forestbewithyou> yes it is for me
13:35:55 <JarnoO> Kevin should feed the chickens again :)
13:36:09 <KorbenC2> My cam is down still, came up for a second 1st though
14:09:39 <JarnoO> afternoon Linda
14:09:50 <LindaG> JarnoO, afternoon
14:09:52 <KorbenC2> Hi Linda
14:09:57 <LindaG> KorbenC2, hi
14:11:22 <Katie> Lion 2nd and OF window overlap - and Grand, maybe, too.
14:12:16 <KorbenC2> JarnoO, you can take this one :)
14:12:57 <JarnoO> you can have it too
14:13:12 <KorbenC2> bt dont you wnat it? :P
14:19:06 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
14:34:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Space X launch is 56 minutes
14:37:30 <JarnoO> am thinking preplay delay for OF
14:48:37 <CraigC> Hey, i need some verification help
14:48:52 <JarnoO> afternoon Craig
14:49:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes, your name IS Craig.
14:49:04 <CraigC> Hi Jarno
14:49:13 <Forestbewithyou> Hi craig
14:49:17 <CraigC> Kevin L™ 🌵, lol
14:49:28 <JarnoO> nice one, Kevin
14:49:40 <CraigC> My gt is not syncing on my phone....
14:49:56 <CraigC> Does my lion entry show?
14:50:06 <JarnoO> it does
14:50:09 <JarnoO> 1443 ie
14:50:18 <CraigC> Tilts baby?
14:50:29 <JarnoO> also shows
14:50:33 <Katie> yup 1422 Tilt's Baby
14:50:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 1422
14:50:39 <JarnoO> Aurum 1414 too
14:50:43 <CraigC> Aurum?
14:50:51 <CraigC> Great ftn?
14:51:05 <Katie> No Great Fountain
14:51:05 <JarnoO> 0846
14:51:20 <Katie> OH! I'm not looking far enough back
14:51:55 <CraigC> Cool, thanks. I will clear cache on app then. Was worried about losing thosr
14:52:02 <CraigC> Arty
14:52:15 <CraigC> Arty 1451.
14:57:24 <CraigC> Jarno, can you delete the arty entry or change to your own wc entry. Wm will enter
14:57:40 <CraigC> I was just giving courtesy fyi
14:58:26 <CraigC> I cleared my gt data and now it updates
14:58:26 <JarnoO> then I'll delete it. Wm can enter :)
14:59:53 <CraigC> Did you guys see giantesd boil earlier?
15:00:41 <JarnoO> we did see boiling around 1245
15:00:42 <CraigC> I saw it from castle
15:01:07 <Eric> Hey Craig
15:01:07 <JarnoO> but otherwise the cam was either too far zoomed out or we were at the wrong place :P
15:01:38 <Eric> I see no arty entry....
15:02:19 <JarnoO> 1448 OF barely a long at 3m35s. Expecting it to go early in window
15:03:12 <CraigC> Eric, howdy
15:03:17 <Eric> Craig, have you met KevinS yet?
15:03:27 <Eric> He is wandering around the UGB today.
15:03:42 <JarnoO> currently at Grand
15:03:57 <CraigC> William will enter arty. I just was letting camops know cuz i heard the radio call
15:04:25 <Eric> ahh, his in basin will override the wc entry, why the deletion?
15:04:43 <CraigC> I met up with kevin at sb, then this am at gf
15:04:55 <Eric> ohh, nevermind, it was just williams call that Jarno entered.
15:05:04 <CraigC> Jarno entered in basin wiyh me as observer
15:05:04 <Eric> Cool Craig...glad you guys connected.
15:05:47 <CraigC> I left arty about an hour ago, had enough sitting on a rock
15:05:58 <JarnoO> haha
15:06:19 <Eric> It can get hot up there on a sunny day.
15:06:36 <KorbenC2> thats why Craig has his umbrella :)
15:06:43 <Eric> You need a collapsible chair craig
15:07:18 <Eric> Maybe a nice tall directors chair with CC imprinted on it :-P
15:07:29 <Eric> So nobody sits in it
15:07:35 <CraigC> Eric, got one, but i need a hydraulic lift to pull me out of it
15:07:50 <KorbenC2> CraigC, haha, and Eric
15:08:44 <Eric> I wanted to get one of those inflatable sofas to take with me can lounge in them too..
15:09:24 <Eric>
15:09:57 <KorbenC2> That would be awesome
15:10:04 <Eric> That would be perfect for some place like arty.
15:10:15 <JarnoO> I have a comfy chair from which the whole seating part can tilt backwards. Might need to bring it with me :)
15:10:20 <Eric> Lots of room and you could chill in the shade
15:10:23 <CraigC> Someone called sprinkler ie on the radio
15:10:32 <Eric> Nice!
15:10:36 <JarnoO> HK would be happy with that call :D
15:10:39 <Eric> No Pump calls?
15:10:44 <KorbenC2> your kidding right? I have never heard of that
15:10:50 <CraigC> They called Bulger ie earlier
15:11:02 <Eric> Hey, they are excited :-D
15:11:07 <CraigC> Someone got a new radio
15:11:15 <Forestbewithyou> Thats like when we got a call for waves on corpral
15:11:29 <KorbenC2> Bulger is acceptable if there is good water levels in the hole :)
15:11:33 <CraigC> Maybe they will call a ns Pump major A
15:11:46 <KorbenC2> now I know exactly who it is :P
15:11:57 <CraigC> They just called bulger ie again
15:12:13 <KorbenC2> Bulger isnt ie, it jsut started
15:12:36 <CraigC> Bulger ini
15:12:43 <KorbenC2> I only call Bulger if the hole is filling fast.
15:12:59 <KorbenC2> Craig, where did oyu get the idea of Bulger series? just wondering, didnt steam my idea did you> :P
15:13:43 <KorbenC2> steal not steam, but for geysers I guess steam is appropriate :)
15:14:38 <CraigC> I deciphered it from a secret Hayden map
15:14:52 <JarnoO> :O
15:14:54 <KorbenC2> haha
15:15:03 <CraigC> Just called little cub ie, i am dying
15:15:11 <JarnoO> haha
15:15:14 <KorbenC2> you have got to be kidding me
15:15:15 <JarnoO> Bulger major
15:15:18 <Forestbewithyou> 🤦‍♂️
15:15:27 <KorbenC2> That is like Callling AL and AB
15:15:27 <Forestbewithyou> I am dying over here
15:16:26 <KorbenC2> At least I didnt envoke the wrath of Craig while I was in basin, hahaha.
15:17:20 <KorbenC2> CraigC, how old is the person calling it?
15:17:22 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
15:17:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> ooh a bulger series?
15:17:35 <KorbenC2> Hi Htsjs,
15:17:39 <KorbenC2> Graham*
15:18:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah congrats on seeing Tilts Baby Craig ... highlight of your trip?
15:18:46 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Graham
15:19:20 <CraigC> I called Kevin and told him to find whoever ir is and throw their radio in the firehole
15:19:35 <KorbenC2> lmao
15:19:37 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, thanks lol
15:19:45 <JarnoO> not Giantess, Craig?
15:19:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha ... i remember when some people complained about calls of Plume erupting
15:20:10 <Forestbewithyou> Oh my Craig
15:20:15 <JarnoO> I bet they'd be more than happy with those calls nowadays
15:20:24 <Forestbewithyou> I bet so too
15:20:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep
15:20:35 <KorbenC2> Graham, I think Sprinkler is the highlisht of his trip, it is cool enough to be called on the radio :P
15:20:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like you had a great view from steerage yesterday. Janets shots from Yellow Funnel were cool too
15:20:48 <JarnoO> I wonder how often Cascade was called in 1998
15:20:51 <CraigC> Kevin said it's a little kid
15:20:57 <KorbenC2> Hi Linda
15:21:05 <Forestbewithyou> oh no
15:21:06 <KorbenC2> Craig, like 16 Year Old?
15:21:09 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
15:21:16 <Forestbewithyou> Or like 5
15:21:18 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, hi
15:21:28 <CraigC> Cooper jr
15:21:32 <Eric> haha
15:21:34 <Forestbewithyou> LMAOOO
15:21:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was called JarnoO, maybe not in Feb when it was very frequent, but by fall its series were spread apart
15:21:41 <KorbenC2> LMAO
15:21:51 <JarnoO> thanks Graham
15:22:01 <KorbenC2> If HE is like 16 years old, I know exactly who it is :)
15:22:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> my 8yo great nephew will be there in Sept and he loves to talk .... i will give him a radio :)
15:22:38 <KorbenC2> ;)
15:22:44 <CraigC> Put him on channel 18
15:22:55 <Forestbewithyou> hhahaha
15:23:00 <KorbenC2> lol
15:23:23 <CraigC> Waves on grand per kevin text
15:23:34 <KorbenC2> nice
15:23:52 <JarnoO> I propose to rename this page from "Geyser Dashboard" to "Geezer Dashboard" :D
15:24:00 <CraigC> Grand
15:24:07 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
15:24:19 <JarnoO> there it is on stream
15:24:23 <JarnoO> nice start
15:24:43 <LindaG> Nice
15:25:00 <KorbenC2> The kid calling LC and Sprinkler must be SantaFe108 he is young and was at SB yesterday, and said he will be in USGS today
15:25:19 <KorbenC2> UGB** OMG
15:25:31 <Forestbewithyou> Wait he works for the USGS wow
15:25:32 <JarnoO> there's actually a Geezer Geyser in Norris per the book
15:25:34 <Forestbewithyou> impressive
15:25:40 <KorbenC2> I am going to throw this keyboard acroos the room.
15:25:45 <Forestbewithyou> LOL why?
15:26:14 <Forestbewithyou> hahhahahah
15:26:36 <LindaG> 👁👁
15:26:56 <KorbenC> I knew you were here, and so did my keyboard ;)
15:27:08 <ynpvisitor911> If you are old you are a Geezer Geyser Gazer.
15:27:22 <Forestbewithyou> thats funny
15:27:37 <JarnoO> try to say that five times fast
15:27:51 <LindaG> 🙂
15:28:22 <KorbenC> Geezer Geyser Gazer, Geezer Geyser Gazer, Grazer Geeyser Gezer, Geezer Greyser Gazee, Geezer Geyser Gazer
15:28:36 <Forestbewithyou> say that 5x fast
15:28:37 <Forestbewithyou> lol
15:30:06 <JarnoO> actually, Geezer is quite well named per the book's description. Usually active during disturbances and even then it's rare.
15:34:33 <JarnoO> Grand well past 10 minutes. 2nd unlikely in my book
15:35:56 <ynpvisitor01010> looks like a Q
15:37:52 <JarnoO> Beehive at 24h
15:38:33 <JarnoO> might go within the next few hours or so
15:45:57 <CraigC> Lion
15:52:42 <KorbenC> CraigC, I entered it for you :)
16:02:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> time for work?
16:03:38 <Katie> releasing
16:03:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> does somebody not want to quit?
16:03:45 <KorbenC> interesting Infant note
16:03:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, thanks :)
16:04:35 <CraigC> Someone else called lion on radio, i never saw it
16:05:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> we missed a Daisy on GT too
16:05:07 <KorbenC> ah, OK
16:05:21 <KorbenC> changed
16:10:55 <kc (working)> OF
16:11:23 <JarnoO> already?
16:11:32 <JarnoO> that's way earlier than I had expected
16:12:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> before VEC prediction window too
16:12:27 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to head out. I may be on later I may not. So have a nice evening everyone
16:12:54 <CraigC> People are calling stuff on radio and not entering
16:13:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> did you just call LC?
16:13:26 <CraigC> I heard the daisy call when i was at tilts
16:14:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> always hard to know whetherto enter as an FR time or wait for the caller ... who may not enter it
16:14:40 <CraigC> Cooper Jr called sprinkler ie again
16:14:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least here if Betty, JarnoO, and Korben are here you know there will be three entries for each eruptin :)
16:14:53 <CraigC> Lol
16:15:00 <JarnoO> hehe
16:15:54 <JarnoO> I've been trying to up the quality of my entries a bit more by also including a duration whenever possible
16:16:03 <JarnoO> that's nice boiling
16:16:20 <CraigC> Graham, people were joking yesterday about entering steamboat minors.... some jerk tossed your name out
16:17:01 <CraigC> <---some jerk
16:17:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> hum, dont think I have put them in ... yet
16:17:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> were there requests for me to do it?
16:17:35 <CraigC> I think i said dont give Graham any ideas
16:17:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> I know people love all the Jet times
16:18:07 <CraigC> Lol
16:18:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> another boil
16:18:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe i should add a note for each one
16:19:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think the GT team tried to stop me by removing the "Add another" button from the app
16:19:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> low temp will be 80 here tnight, ug
16:19:39 <ynpvisitor104> .
16:21:04 <LindaG> Driving today the thermometer in car said 100
16:21:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice .. i didnt go out today
16:21:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> thunderstorm here now, maybe cool off a bit or just get steamier
16:22:55 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, humidity dropped here a bit. I walked outside a little today. Haha it was about 95
16:23:10 <Betty> afternoon all
16:23:15 <JarnoO> evening Betty
16:23:17 <LindaG> Betty, hi
16:23:34 <Betty> evening JarnoO, hi LindaG, GO STEAMBOAT
16:23:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Betty. must be time for BH
16:24:01 <Betty> hope so
16:24:37 <Betty> hmm, static is stuck
16:25:32 <LindaG> Rise up BH, rise up!
16:25:57 <JarnoO> Korben, Seven-E predicted to become remnant low. Eight-E has formed a central dense overcast, near TS strength
16:26:00 <CraigC> Hey Betty
16:26:07 <CraigC> Hey Linda
16:26:17 <LindaG> CraigC, hey hey
16:26:22 <Betty> hey CraigC, how is the trip?
16:26:32 <CraigC> Awesome
16:26:32 <KorbenC> Sorry, I was away and it took my 5 minutes to troubleshoot the fact that I thought 48-12=32 not 36 :p
16:26:47 <Betty> hi KorbenC
16:26:49 <KorbenC> JarnoO, :thumbsup:
16:26:53 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
16:27:07 <KorbenC> I see we had 2 good boils on Giantess
16:27:55 <ynpvisitor42> I thought you were good at math?
16:32:27 <KorbenC> I am
16:32:41 <KorbenC> I am just too the point where I go to calculator and not simple brain power :)
16:32:55 <JarnoO> I severely doubt that now, Korben
16:33:16 <KorbenC> Plus I just taught myself Conic Systems in 5 minutes
16:33:49 <KorbenC> been doing some practice on taking conic sections and solving intercepts :) I am still yet to get a real answer haha
16:33:54 <ynpvisitor42> How about the definition of too?😅
16:34:46 <ynpvisitor42> CraigC, when are you going home?
16:34:59 <KorbenC> Meh :) English is important, Math is importanter, Science is importantest and Steamboat is importantest-er :)
16:36:54 <ynpvisitor42> GS, Caps ready to play?
16:37:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep, they have a bye like the Knighties
16:38:41 <ynpvisitor42> Well. Isles defense is healed. I’m expecting another second round loss
16:38:57 <ynpvisitor42> Or I guess third round this year
16:39:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, hello Dave :)
16:40:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> I am guessing Michele and Becca were not at SB :(
16:40:11 <ynpvisitor42> Howdy stranger
16:40:55 <ynpvisitor42> No. I had freight duty on weekend. Did play golf with kids on Sunday. That was fun
16:41:17 <KorbenC> Hi Dave :)
16:41:20 <JarnoO> Lion 1640 min
16:41:22 <ynpvisitor42> Maybe the next one if it waits for Friday Saturday
16:41:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was early JrnoO
16:41:56 <ynpvisitor42> Kc, thanks for spelling my name right!😅
16:42:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> glad you enjoyed Sunday. Need to get back for them to see SB tho
16:42:06 <JarnoO> probably went on first roar
16:42:25 <ynpvisitor42> Yep. Becca leaves for school on the 12th
16:42:58 <JarnoO> Giantess boiling?
16:43:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh wow, not long
16:43:47 <ynpvisitor42> Montana schools bumped up 2 weeks so they are done at thanksgiving
16:44:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> hope hwr school year woks out well this year, gonna be strange
16:45:27 <ynpvisitor42> Yeah. Probably will end up online the way things are going
16:46:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, numbers are al going the wrong way. i still have not heard about the 1 positive test in the park
16:48:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like Bil is the worst spot in MT
16:48:51 <ynpvisitor42> And Bozeman. They had most new cases today
16:50:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably get worse once the schools open up too
16:50:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> it does that Korben
16:51:03 <JarnoO> boiling
16:51:12 <ynpvisitor42> KC, a watched pot that hasn’t erupted in 6 years never erupts
16:51:12 <JarnoO> and done
16:51:35 <JarnoO> that was decent boiling along the southeastern rim I think
16:51:38 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor42, haha. Why are you being extra funny today?
16:51:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> it is boining ore than usual tho ... maybe it will erupt in the next decade
16:51:50 <KorbenC> JarnoO, 1642 was weak South boiling
16:52:04 <KorbenC> GO STEAMBOAT, I wouldnt go that far, maybe next century?
16:52:58 <ynpvisitor42> Haha Korben
16:53:25 <ynpvisitor42> I can’t wait for baseball to start Thursday
16:53:45 <Betty> hi Dave
16:54:02 <ynpvisitor42> Hi Betty
16:54:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> wake me up when it does the meter boil
16:54:45 <KorbenC> Dave today is like pour Chump from the Goonies, super hilarious, do you like yogurt too Dave?
16:54:52 <JarnoO> from the center, right?
16:55:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> it doesnt matter JarnoO ... 1-2m bil is good
16:55:27 <ynpvisitor42> Occasionally. I had some Saturday after my 3 mile walk on the rims
16:56:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> i have a picture :)
16:56:35 <JarnoO> in that case, Graham, keep it in view around Beehive. Been having some good boils along the southeastern rim during that time, one estimated to 4-5 feet
16:56:47 <KorbenC> GO STEAMBOAT, can we see the picture?
16:56:54 <ynpvisitor42> Michelle posted one on FB?
16:57:10 <ynpvisitor42> You can share graham
17:00:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> who estimated that JarnoO?
17:00:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> hard to do a height estimate from ere even if someone is standing on the boardwalk
17:00:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> i shared pic on FB
17:01:00 <JarnoO> Ryan initially estimated a boil which happened just before Beehive, and I built off of that
17:01:01 <JarnoO> Lion
17:01:05 <Betty> lion
17:01:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> the 2011 pic was the day I saw F&M too
17:02:18 <JarnoO> here are the boils we saw from cam around Beehive:,
17:02:54 <JarnoO> they are still frames I took at the highest point of these boils
17:04:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC
17:05:15 <KorbenC> I could calculate it with # of pixles and height of Beehives Cone and then just use that ratio on Giantess to get a rough estimate, with Sponges cone height you could get a rough estimate...
17:05:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> when you see the people behind it, its probably a 2' boil, maybe 3 max
17:05:46 <KorbenC> Beehive is a little over 4 feet I think, and Sponge is how tall? 2 ft?
17:06:46 <ynpvisitor42> Have a good evening everyone. My wife says it’s five o clock!
17:06:59 <KorbenC> Bye Dave, have a good evening
17:07:01 <JarnoO> cya Dave
17:07:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> ejoy the wine Dave
17:07:13 <Betty> yummy, beer time
17:07:41 <ynpvisitor42> Beer to start for me and gin and tonic for Michelle
17:07:52 <Betty> enjoy
17:08:31 <KorbenC> small rim boiling
17:11:48 <KorbenC> Jarno, some quick math with the fact that the distances between Sponge, Beehive and Giantess are pretty close (7 meters) I would say it is a fair guess to say that the boil on the 1st image with BHI ie is about 2.5ft, and the second one about 2.4ft
17:13:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> i was looking a the people behind it that were a lot taller than the boil
17:14:58 <KorbenC> I am gonna go play soem Trains
17:16:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> family friend in Denver just went into ER with covid :(
17:16:19 <JarnoO> that's no good :(
17:16:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> nope
17:16:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> when is he next Lion JarnoO?
17:16:52 <Betty> sorry to hear that :-(
17:17:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> 4.5 erptions in the series so far
17:17:14 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1807±5m if series continues. 3m44s
17:17:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah she was having difficulty breathing and dehydrated
17:17:47 <JarnoO> yikes. Hopefully she recovers
17:17:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks jarno. did the predction wrk for the early minor?
17:18:32 <JarnoO> we didn't see it. It would've been just about captured within the larger, 1h05m±10m window
17:18:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah i hope so too, she is a good friend of my sister ..... they have not been together, so no transmissin risk for my family
17:19:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> has there been any bee spit today?
17:21:23 <JarnoO> I recall a little bit somewhere this morning, but otherwise nothing or we just haven't captured it
17:24:21 <JarnoO> Cistern completely drained 1205, filling with water visible 1620. Per Yates' notes
17:29:53 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
17:30:03 <JarnoO> night Betty
17:42:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
17:47:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> Daisy
17:55:10 <KorbenC> FYI Update for Jarno and Ryan if he is here, 7 days till Sput deadline
17:55:25 <JarnoO> I know
17:57:27 <KorbenC> just making sure.
18:07:01 <KorbenC> wb kc, how was work?
18:11:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> what articles are you writing?
18:12:42 <KorbenC> Well, I am writing two articles. The first one I wrote was about the sawmill complex, mainly Bulger and the systems series like nature. The second one is about SB Signal Interpretation and that is with Jarno, Ryan, and Mara.
18:13:10 <kcmule> good times KC. how are you
18:13:20 <KorbenC> I am doing OK
18:14:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok, that sounds good
18:22:03 <JarnoO> Indy
18:22:04 <JarnoO> .
18:22:05 <JarnoO> .
18:22:06 <JarnoO> .
18:22:07 <JarnoO> .
18:22:07 <JarnoO> .
18:24:14 <Kitt> thanks for the text
18:24:18 <Kitt> yay indy
18:24:33 <JarnoO> could you keep Giantess in view, Graham? Am hoping (and wondering if) it'll do that boiling again around Beehive's start
18:26:21 <Kitt> is that close to cone?
18:26:24 <Kitt> also
18:27:40 <Kitt> Kevin made it here in 43 hours Graham
18:27:42 <JarnoO> looks more like the splash zone of Indicator to me, but I'm not a BHCCI expert
18:28:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> need to watch for Aurum too
18:29:12 <KorbenC> Nice
18:29:28 <KorbenC> anyone know if Kevin is at Bee?
18:29:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh good, did he enjoy the drive?
18:29:48 <Kitt> which Kevin?
18:29:55 <KorbenC> Kitt, S
18:30:00 <JarnoO> Bee was close there
18:30:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am feeding chickens.
18:30:09 <Kitt> he found it interesting seeing how people did or didn
18:30:27 <Kitt> didn't wear masks, keep distance, etc.
18:31:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah yes, some places are good, others not. did he stop anywhere interesting?
18:31:39 <Kitt> only stopped for short breaks, and to nap
18:31:48 <JarnoO> nice Bee
18:32:00 <Kitt> Beehive
18:32:30 <Kitt> nice and tall
18:32:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> how long will he be home?
18:32:53 <KorbenC> tall, and just the right wind dirrection
18:33:03 <JarnoO> been a fairly wind still day today, which has been nice
18:33:39 <Kitt> we don't know, he is sorting thru school items, etc. and then he will head back, but he needed to get rested again
18:33:40 <ynpvisitor26> Looks like Giantess kept its hands in its pockets :(
18:33:40 <KorbenC> can we zoom out to get the top of the collumn?
18:33:54 <KorbenC> thx
18:34:11 <JarnoO> Giantess can still have some nice boiling. Anywhere around Beehive does I think
18:36:18 <Kitt> well thanks for the text, back to sorting and repacking
18:36:41 <JarnoO> definitely some larger patches of dark spots around Giantess now compared with yesterday
18:46:24 <JarnoO> 15m50s for Indicator (of which the lead time was 13m04s), 4m44s for Beehive
18:55:32 <KorbenC> Hi SF
18:57:11 <KorbenC> Hi Lori
18:57:12 <Lori S> Hello hello
18:57:30 <LindaG> Hello lori hello
18:57:30 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
18:57:37 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
18:57:39 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
18:57:49 <Lori S> Hello Korben hello
18:58:22 <Lori S> Cistern on the way back up already
18:58:52 <JarnoO> evening SF108, Lori, Linda
18:59:01 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
18:59:01 <Lori S> Hi Jarno
19:01:23 <JarnoO> Riverside ie
19:01:47 <LindaG> Riverside
19:01:56 <LindaG> Just saw a wisp
19:02:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Better than seeing a wasp.
19:02:58 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😯👍
19:04:41 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, so I figured those chicken arms would be a good Halloween costume for them, freak the grand kids out
19:05:08 <KorbenC> my mom wnats me to watch a movie with her :)
19:05:24 <JarnoO> evening Michael
19:05:24 <LindaG> KorbenC, that's nice
19:05:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Slow train day today Linda. Nobody got run over and no derailments. The Chief was 14h26m late though.
19:05:49 <Michael> Hi JarnoO.
19:06:20 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow, what was it doing all that time
19:08:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Broke down. Crew ran out of hours (VERY strict 12 hour limit) and got stuck in traffic. It is running 15h35m late right now.
19:08:25 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, I cant watch that train death but how fast was train going?
19:09:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BTW my Hawaii package is out for delivery now, and my New Jersey package ended up in Fontana.
19:09:53 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, you are always having problems
19:11:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was a really stupid person. Train was probably doing 45mph. He was in the crossing with another person and went back to the track and waved at the train. He was going to jump out of the way at the last second but you can't really judge the speed of a large train coming at you.
19:12:05 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh that is stupid yikes
19:13:46 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, feel bad for person with him. Sometimes out here people jump in front of trains . Once the guy handed hismwallet to a bystander and jumped, NJntransitnhad to
19:14:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 24 years old. I really pity the train crew. They did nothing wrong. I have noticed a lot of horn in the area today. The really dumb thing is in the 5 minutes before that incident there were 2 incidents of trespassers on the track
19:14:15 <LindaG> NJ transit had to pay for counseling for the poor guy
19:14:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know a lot of engineers and they had some awful stories.
19:15:23 <LindaG> Crazy
19:15:45 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy Giantess boiling
19:15:58 <LindaG> JarnoO, night
19:16:56 <KorbenC(tablet)> JarnoO, bye
19:17:03 <Lori S> night Jarno
19:17:33 <SantaFe108(ysto> Night jarnoo
19:17:50 <LindaG> SantaFe108(ystone lake), congrats on steamboat
19:17:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We worked with LE when I was with OLI and they would stop offenders and give them information or in bad cases citations. The most stunning one was a lady with a stroller and a kid in tow went around the gate and started yelling at LE when he tried to talk to her. She ended up with 3 citations, one crossing violation and2 child endangerment.
19:18:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Glad you got it SantaFe
19:18:32 <SantaFe108(ysto> Thanks
19:19:22 <LindaG> SantaFe108(ystone lake), that was perfect timing. How long did you have to wait?
19:20:00 <SantaFe108(ysto> 41 minutes
19:20:06 <SantaFe108(ysto> About
19:20:17 <LindaG> SantaFe108(ystone lake), wow, that's great
19:20:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
19:21:33 <Michael> What geysers do you watch for an encore after seeing Steamboat?
19:21:44 <LindaG> They should all be that easy 🙂
19:22:18 <LindaG> Michael, might as well retire the gazer hat
19:22:42 <LindaG> Or see it again 🙂
19:22:58 <SantaFe108(ysto> Just the steam
19:23:51 <LindaG> I saw great video on FB I think it was from Janet of steamboat fro a distance, it was impressive
19:24:05 <LindaG> *from
19:27:09 <Lori S> LindaG, I knew the view from there would be excellent. That's where I sat at sunrise in June watching it splash
19:27:55 <Lori S> Her photos show you can see both vents individually jetting waer
19:28:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> i want to watch from Decker
19:28:12 <Lori S> water from there
19:28:17 <LindaG> Lori S, nice. I was more impressed with steamboat from there because it really shows its size, and you could hear people yellimg
19:28:50 <Lori S> you can see people at steerage from there too due to the dead trees
19:29:29 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, Yellow Funnel hill is way better than Decker IMO
19:30:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> i will have to ceck again, you get the clear view up from steerage to the vents from Decker tho
19:30:48 <LindaG> Lori S, Was Janet's from decker?
19:31:05 <Lori S> plus I heard a "wave" of activity that repeated from there. Surges in features that progressed toward Steamboat
19:31:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> Janet was at Yellow Funnel
19:31:27 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, 👍
19:31:45 <Lori S> LindaG, yes, Janet was in "my" spot LOL
19:31:55 <LindaG> Lori S, the nerve
19:32:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> she posted her blog entry on Geyser Discussion page. has good pictures in it
19:32:02 <Lori S> hehe
19:32:04 <SantaFe108(ysto> Kevin what happened with the Chief?
19:32:13 <ynpvisitor104> Gordon has seen SB from there
19:32:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, have to avoid your spot Lori
19:32:32 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, yes, saw that. happy to see what it looks like from there since my cahnce of getting a #4 are low
19:33:01 <Lori S> ynpvisitor104, oh cool. from when?
19:33:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope it keeps going like this al season
19:33:52 <Lori S> That spot grabbed me that morning due to the cyclic surging pattern. Wonder if anyone else has heard that?
19:35:43 <ynpvisitor104> Lori S, I know he was triangulating height from there in 2018
19:36:08 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, yes, the 4/5/4/5 pattern is interesting
19:36:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am happy if it stays under 6 without a pattern
19:36:51 <Lori S> ynpvisitor104, :thumbsup: I saw that Janet mentioned the height from there.
19:37:06 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, :)
19:37:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Breakdown and crew running out of time compounded by traffic and mow works SantaFe
19:38:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Running 16h late right now.
19:39:25 <Lori S> *Disclaimer: I was being sarcastic calling it "my" spot. Just in case that didn't come across. :)
19:39:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> i just tell people about 400 feet since there have been several heights measured about that
19:40:28 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, I have said twice the height of OF but I may have to change that to "of Beehive"
19:40:40 <LindaG> Lori S, 🙂
19:41:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> its about 3 times the average height of OF
19:42:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> i need to see it from a distance to appreciate that
19:42:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> now i got to see it from steerage last trip i can hang out at Decker ... good social distancing spot too
19:42:43 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, yes, you do. In 3 majors, I have yet to see a start from the platforms. The view from Decker was my first
19:44:07 <Lori S> So was this one Jeff's first? I don't recall.
19:44:20 <LindaG> Yes
19:44:36 <Lori S> And KevinS?
19:45:10 <LindaG> Lori S, he had seen it, he has it on his Instagram, but not sure if from start
19:45:24 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
19:45:48 <Lori S> I am always excited when I see someone got there first start.
19:46:04 <Lori S> their
19:46:09 <KorbenC(tablet)> The view from my first one was on the way down past emerald, I ran back when i saw minors over the trees, it "started" right where the split is
19:46:14 <LindaG> Daisy
19:46:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice. the view in the gap area is good
19:47:06 <KorbenC(tablet)> And my second was pulling into the parking lot when i hear STEAMBOAT 1727!!!!!! I still feel bad for Lori thinking i missed it;):p
19:49:29 <LindaG> Those were nice pics in Janet's blog
19:49:47 <KorbenC(tablet)> LindaG, they were
19:50:14 <LindaG> One of the best I've seen is by Bruce Jensen
19:59:03 <Lori S> KorbenC(tablet), Every video from that one has your nme in it and "I'm sorry." :)
19:59:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> Castle
19:59:31 <kcmule> nice
20:00:44 <LindaG> I am freezing my a/c is in overdrive ❄
20:01:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> you could turn the temp up :)
20:01:33 <Lori S> LindaG, can I have some of that? 80's in MT is HOT
20:01:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> it will be down to 80 here tonight
20:01:59 <LindaG> I did 🙂 then all of a sudden it gets too warm 😕
20:02:22 <LindaG> No happy medium
20:03:04 <LindaG> Says low of 76 here
20:03:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha i was feeling a chll the other day, bumped it up 1 degree ... and after a while put it back on 75
20:04:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> that keeps me just about right
20:04:05 <Lori S> I'm in shorts at 55 :)
20:04:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice burst
20:04:44 <LindaG> That's what happens. It's set at 75 right now and it's still chugging.
20:04:54 <LindaG> Nice light
20:06:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 112° here but high (12%) humidity.
20:06:24 <KorbenC(tablet)> Its settled, I am doing another 14er this weekend, quandary. 6.75 miles, 14265ft
20:06:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not many fish up there.
20:06:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice. do you do it with your dad?
20:06:55 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow
20:07:09 <Lori S> Kevin L™ 🌵, :D
20:07:49 <KorbenC(tablet)> GO STEAMBOAT, yes
20:08:13 <KorbenC(tablet)> We will leave on either Friday or sat, sleep in the truck overnight and climb early
20:08:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> thunderstorms cooled it off here, down t 76, 85% humidity
20:08:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> dew point 72
20:08:50 <Lori S> nice Castle bursts
20:09:04 <LindaG> No rain here 😕 we could use some
20:09:29 <KorbenC(tablet)> But which day will depend on when the evil rain hits, we will easily be down by noon, so anytime by then.
20:11:26 <Lori S> KorbenC(tablet), do you guys hike at 10 mph at 14K ft? :)
20:12:26 <kcmule> quandary is a pretty easy one as far as 14ers go
20:13:30 <kcmule> I call it the elephant's back b/c that's what it looks like to me
20:17:52 <KorbenC(tablet)> Lori S, effectively
20:18:18 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, we wanted to do la plata but, that stupid swamp :p
20:18:48 <KorbenC(tablet)> We will probably go head and do either elbert or one of the bells.
20:19:24 <kcmule> be thankful for the boardwalk by guanella pass or you would be cursing that swamp too
20:19:37 <KorbenC(tablet)> Hahahaha
20:20:03 <kcmule> elbert is also relatively simple. the trail breaker apparently never heard of switchbacks tho
20:20:21 <KorbenC(tablet)> The thing I love about la plata from the main route is that big climb upto the nice ridge with the mi e
20:20:28 <KorbenC(tablet)> Mine, not mi e
20:20:38 <kcmule> the bells are pretty challenging I hear, crummy rock. i'm not familiar with la plata
20:21:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> the drive over Guanella wasnt swampy last month
20:21:38 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, they are, if you do the mean routes
20:21:47 <KorbenC(tablet)> GO STEAMBOAT, is it ever not:p:p:p
20:22:28 <kcmule> the drive is fine, the trail goes thru a willow swamp
20:23:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> good job we didnt attempt to survive the swamp then
20:23:32 <KorbenC(tablet)> Here is my route up la plata
20:23:36 <KorbenC(tablet)>
20:24:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> quitting time for me, goodnight.
20:24:37 <KorbenC(tablet)> You can see the mean climb up to the ridge on photos 5-7
20:24:43 <kcmule> let me check the roach book
20:24:48 <KorbenC(tablet)> GO STEAMBOAT, night, thx for driving
20:25:15 <Lori S> night Graham
20:25:33 <KorbenC(tablet)> And God is La Plata a fickle bleep for that false summit
20:28:47 <KorbenC(tablet)> I am gonna go for tonight. I am still waiting for you toget me those video Lori;)
20:28:51 <kcmule> looks pretty punishing
20:28:58 <kcmule> nite
20:29:18 <Lori S> KorbenC(tablet), sigh
20:29:27 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, the down hill is nice:)
20:29:35 <KorbenC(tablet)> Lori S, why?
20:29:50 <KorbenC(tablet)> See the wink that I am messing with you
20:29:57 <kcmule> my knees disagree lol
20:30:05 <KorbenC(tablet)> Haha
20:30:10 <Lori S> I owe you videos, photos, data...sigh
20:30:26 <KorbenC(tablet)> How many 14ers have ya done kc?
20:30:55 <kcmule> 11 different ones, a few multiple times
20:30:58 <KorbenC(tablet)> Lori S, I got photos and data.
20:31:16 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, favorite? I pr
20:31:40 <KorbenC(tablet)> I like Huron because it has a fishing campsite at the bottom :p
20:31:53 <kcmule> longs peak by a mile
20:32:08 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, makes sense, that's a fun one
20:33:24 <kcmule> it was punishing but rewarding. both left and got back in the pitch black
20:34:29 <kcmule> this is my film on longs peak:
20:34:45 <KorbenC(tablet)> You should head out and try laplante, easy except for that 100ft pitch up to the ridgep
20:35:46 <kcmule> I will, I have camped at twin lakes
20:36:08 <kcmule> knees aren't what they used to be though
20:36:17 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, white star?
20:36:45 <LindaG> Goodnight everybody
20:36:53 <KorbenC(tablet)> LindaG, bye
20:36:55 <Lori S> night Linda
20:37:22 <kcmule> I don't remember that name but it's in the right place on the map
20:37:39 <KorbenC(tablet)> Huron is easy, nice trail all the way to the top. I was just considering changing it to Huron because of the fishing spot
20:37:45 <kcmule> there is good dispersed camping on south side of quandary
20:38:40 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, yeah, we just sleep in our car:):):)
20:38:49 <KorbenC(tablet)> Gonna be crowded though
20:38:54 <kcmule> I think i'd consider leaving before daybreak if the weather report stays the same
20:39:24 <KorbenC(tablet)> We usually leave around 430
20:39:31 <kcmule> often times the biggest challenge to 14ers is finding parking at the trailheads
20:39:38 <kcmule> that should do
20:40:03 <kcmule> if you haven't done grays and torreys put them in ink on your list too
20:40:06 <KorbenC(tablet)> And doing the east ridge so should be done in like 3 hours
20:40:40 <kcmule> I've been close enough to lightning to taste it in my mouth, not fun
20:41:23 <KorbenC(tablet)> During the mornings in COS I can do 5 miles in 1h 17m, I can safely get down before noon, even if i leave at 8
20:41:50 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, I did, did them for the August eclipse a few years back
20:42:44 <kcmule> best views from any 14ers i've ever done. we could see the maroon bells from torreys
20:43:23 <kcmule> interesting choice for the eclipse, I spend 11.5 hours driving back from glendo WY with the rest of the state of colorado evidently
20:43:29 <kcmule> *spent
20:44:35 <kcmule> targeting texas for 2024 though
20:44:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Gee, I wonder why? :)
20:45:52 <KorbenC(tablet)> kcmule, I only wanted to miss 1 day of school:) so decided to go do a 14er
20:46:16 <KorbenC(tablet)> It was spectacular, 90 percent at 14000ft is always pretty
20:47:05 <KorbenC(tablet)> And being 12 at the time, people are astonished too see me up there speed walking
20:47:17 <kcmule> reckon texas will have the best chance for clear skies but in april everywhere is going to be a crap shoot
20:47:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You need to do 100% Korben. There is a stunning difference between 100% and 99.99999999%
20:48:09 <kcmule> KL is correct, go for 100 in 2024
20:48:51 <KorbenC(tablet)> I am:D
20:49:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My granddaughter was funny. About 3 hours later she wanted to go outside and do the eclipse again.
20:50:16 <KorbenC(tablet)> But not going to Texas, my grandpa lives right in the path
20:50:48 <KorbenC(tablet)> Time to actually head out, nice talking to you kl and kc, as always
20:51:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night.
20:51:10 <kcmule> only 7 years between eclipses is pretty short but that's probably not easy to explain to a youngen
20:51:11 <kcmule> nite
20:51:46 <kcmule> it goes right thru my home town of buffalo, ny but asking for clear skies in april is.. inadvisable
20:52:00 <Lori S> night korben
20:52:05 <kcmule> watch them be clear and texas cloudy.. you just never know
20:52:24 <kcmule> it's closer to the horizon in 2024 too, which makes odds even less
20:55:14 <kcmule> carbondale illinois got totality in 2017 and will again in 2024
20:57:33 <kcmule> OF
21:20:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That isn't fair kc
21:47:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like Grand
