07:14:15 <Kat> Good - and you?
07:14:28 <Forestbewithyou> I am doing pretty well. I am a bit tired though
07:17:12 <Kat> I can relate to that LOL
07:17:42 <Forestbewithyou> I am planning on taking my semester exam for pre-calc today
07:18:54 <Kat> Eeewww!
07:19:22 <Kat> Those days are long gone for me - thankfully!
07:19:23 <Forestbewithyou> :)
07:19:33 <Forestbewithyou> yea I am not to worried...
07:19:44 <Forestbewithyou> I currently have a 94 in the class
07:20:18 <Forestbewithyou> I wish it were higher tho
07:20:25 <Kat> Awesome!
07:20:41 <Kat> Perfectionist?
07:21:33 <Forestbewithyou> a bit. It specifically comes with Math and Science because I know I can do better
07:22:15 <Kat> I used to be the same - I actually took chemistry a second time to get a better grade Haha
07:22:29 <Forestbewithyou> Yea I wouldn't do that
07:22:45 <Kat> Reaching for the GPA!
07:23:03 <Forestbewithyou> yea
07:23:38 <Forestbewithyou> I need to go eat breakfast, Brb

08:07:33 <Forestbewithyou> Hi ryan
08:09:44 <Ryan> Morning
08:15:27 <Kat> :daisy:
08:19:52 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to hop off for a bit to meet with my pre-calc teacher. So I will be back in a bit
08:24:53 <KorbenC> Morning Everyone
08:25:12 <KorbenC> I guess my weekend of tiredness caught up with me by sleeping in 3.5 hours :P
08:26:38 <Ryan> Morning, KC.
08:27:00 <KorbenC> Good morning Ryan, how was your weekend?
08:27:44 <Ryan> Incredible.
08:28:25 <KorbenC> I saw that you found your open room
08:28:30 <KorbenC> (in the cave)
08:28:51 <Ryan> That was a different cave than usual.
08:29:49 <KorbenC> Your name for it, lmao
08:30:26 <Ryan> Thats about as accurate as it could be. At least mentally/
08:30:44 <Ryan> We named one little formation "Neowise".
08:31:17 <KorbenC> thats cool
08:31:26 <ynpvisitor56> Neowise Formation
08:31:28 <ynpvisitor12> SantaFe108
08:31:49 <SantaFe108> oops
08:32:01 <KorbenC> Hi SF
08:32:13 <SantaFe108> morning korben
08:32:23 <Ryan> Discoveries were expected in the survey of this cave, but that room was an utter and complete shock.
08:32:25 <SantaFe108> I have left the park so I will have internet
08:32:31 <KorbenC> wait, how does 56 have Ryans photos? :p
08:33:08 <Ryan> :) Easier to copypasta from my phone.
08:33:09 <KorbenC> SantaFe108, did you see Beehive?
08:33:23 <Ryan> We should look down basin
08:33:28 <Ryan> South Grotto Fountain is ie
08:33:29 <SantaFe108> No I left upper 2 hours before because my family went fishing :(
08:33:40 <Ryan> we may get Grotto Fountain soon
08:33:58 <KorbenC> Ryan, I think GF might be ie right now, more steam than just SGF
08:34:24 <KorbenC> is this like your, "hope daisys looking good", "oh hey, its erupting" :)
08:34:27 <Ryan> Not sure, I can't tell from here :P
08:34:38 <SantaFe108> On my way out this morning there was a survey crew by Mud Volcano
08:35:31 <SantaFe108> they parked in a turnoff and they walked towards the north part by sulphur cauldron
08:36:24 <Ryan> No Grotto Fountain, KC. You saw Grotto.
08:36:27 <Ryan> 0831 wc
08:37:00 <KorbenC> thanks
08:37:22 <KorbenC> SB Note: No water back at hte boat, huffing. Per CB
08:38:34 <Ryan> In ten hours we surveyed 2,800ft of passage, discovered a stunning room, several small pits and waterfalls, and I got lost and starnded after my light went out...
08:38:41 <Ryan> Can't say ive ever had a trip like that before
08:38:58 <KorbenC> how did you find your way out?
08:39:11 <Ryan> My caving partner found me
08:39:34 <Ryan> She was only 60ft away or so. I just sat down and starting making whooping noises. She knows what that means.
08:39:44 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
08:40:21 <Ryan> Happens.
08:40:29 <KorbenC> always good to have some sort of signal like that, were you with Hope?
08:40:44 <Ryan> I've gotten turned around a time or two. But I've rarely been "lost". Sunday is one of those times lol
08:40:46 <Ryan> No.
08:43:40 <Ryan> I can only think of two times I legit didnt know where I was and how I got there.
08:44:04 <Ryan> Sunday, and one time with Will in Wyoming. Both times involved me scouting out a route on my own lol
08:44:23 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: lol
08:44:51 <Ryan> The time with Will I got myself out of it, but even then I was confused as to how I got where I did.
08:45:33 <Forestbewithyou> hey Hey
08:45:36 <KorbenC> wb Forest
08:45:53 <Forestbewithyou> Thx
08:45:58 <KorbenC> Ryan, are there any caves, or should I say, are there any caves you cna go into in YNP?
08:46:32 <Ryan> Yes and then no.
08:49:31 <Ryan> My county has taken off with COVID cases. :/
08:49:44 <KorbenC> :(
08:51:54 <Ryan> We plateaued for 2 months, got complacent and cocky, and now we have tripled our case count in only three weeks
08:52:29 <Forestbewithyou> that sucksE!
08:52:53 <Ryan> And was expected and (frankly) deserved.
08:53:18 <KorbenC> Hi KevinS
08:53:46 <KevinS> Good morning all
08:54:01 <KorbenC> KevinS, where are you?
08:54:15 <Ryan> I think a majority here dont believe in it. I swear to God.
08:54:28 <KevinS> Geyser hill
08:56:16 <KevinS> Infant still dirty and swirling.
08:56:32 <KorbenC> any large boiling on Giantess?
08:57:05 <KevinS> Not yet. Just getting here though
08:58:05 <KevinS> Vault half inch below overflow.
08:58:58 <Ryan> Giantess needs to pick up the pace
08:59:08 <Ryan> Those little boils are not nearly enough.
09:00:05 <KevinS> Giantess boil about 10” high on northeast rim. 10-12’ wide.
09:02:04 <Eric> Morning all
09:02:09 <Forestbewithyou> Hey Eric
09:02:15 <Eric> Hi Forest
09:02:20 <KorbenC> HI Eric
09:02:21 <Forestbewithyou> how are you doing today
09:02:27 <Eric> Hey Coop
09:02:37 <Eric> Doing ok...just getting my work day going :-D
09:03:08 <Kat> Hi eric
09:03:28 <Eric> Hi Kat
09:03:48 <KevinS> Bear spotted by William down basin.
09:03:50 <Eric> Looks like another beautiful day in the park!
09:04:05 <Eric> Is he at Arty?
09:04:34 <KevinS> Near spa
09:06:41 <KevinS> Came out from Fan and Mortar area.
09:08:45 <Eric> Nice...Grizzlies love that power line route
09:09:29 <Eric> Is the old bathroom gone from there?
09:09:58 <KorbenC> Eric, yes
09:10:07 <KorbenC> but there is a new pit toilet by riverside
09:10:27 <Eric> Yes, I have used the riverside one, but I didn't pay any attention to if they had removed the old one
09:11:32 <KorbenC> Jarno, if you are here 80/80 Atlantic Invest
09:12:37 <Eric> You guys need your own weather chat :-P
09:12:47 <Forestbewithyou> lololol
09:12:55 <Forestbewithyou> Count me in!!!
09:12:58 <Forestbewithyou> :)
09:13:07 <KorbenC> and Tropical Storm douglas is on track to become a hurricane this afternoon, then hitting Hawaii as a tropical storm, I feel bad for Kevin's package :)
09:13:10 <KorbenC> Eric, I do :P
09:13:38 <Forestbewithyou> are you going to say here Korben?
09:14:17 <KorbenC> well, the other chat requires a password, that prevents strollers from getting on it :)
09:14:30 <KorbenC> trollers** I hate autocorrect
09:14:36 <Forestbewithyou> I see :)
09:17:54 <Eric> That is an interesting have to know the magic word to get into here :-P
09:18:28 <Eric> But seems like more of a PITA then helpful, so everyone here is so awesome!
09:18:50 <KorbenC> what is PITA, I assume your arent talking about the chip type
09:18:52 <KorbenC> Hi KC
09:18:53 <Eric> ugg, english...not my strong suit in the mornings :-P
09:18:54 <KorbenC> kc***
09:19:34 <kc (working)> pain in the .. good morning
09:20:31 <Mike J> Sorry, just caught up on the conversation. But restricting strollers was sounding a little like "get off my lawn!" Not that I didn't like the idea, just saying....
09:20:49 <KevinS> Giantess starting to boil again.
09:21:51 <KevinS> Not much that time.
09:28:53 <KevinS> Castle having nice splashes
09:30:59 <KevinS> Castle
09:30:59 <KorbenC> Castle
09:31:02 <Kat> Castle

09:33:56 <Forestbewithyou> :)
09:33:59 <Mike J> Wondering. Could we get a new icon for castle? Nathan Fillion's face?
09:34:00 <SantaFe108> I dont think he knows :(
09:34:00 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi
09:34:07 <Eric> hahaha
09:34:07 <Forestbewithyou> oh for the sake of it Castle
09:34:20 <SantaFe108> Castle for people in the back

09:38:14 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Looking for NoDoz.....
09:39:52 <Forestbewithyou> I was looking away :)
09:45:46 <Kat> Looks like 1 and done
09:46:45 <Kat> Castle to steam - major
10:00:29 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Perry Mason music. Guess I need to get to work
10:01:07 <Kat> Have a good one Kevin!
10:01:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Should be a slow day
10:04:35 <KorbenC> Rocket
10:19:29 <KorbenC> Morning Jimbo?
10:19:45 <Slingin' Sammy> Hi Korben. Historical sports reference today
10:20:19 <Slingin' Sammy> Any Giantess boils today?
10:21:10 <KorbenC> idk
10:24:03 <Ryan> Morning Jimbo, none that matter lol
10:24:23 <Eric> Daisy case forest missed it
10:26:18 <KorbenC> Ryan, can you grab this OF? I am gonna head out for a quick walk
10:27:20 <Ryan> sure
10:27:55 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Good luck
10:28:10 <Ryan> no kidding
10:36:47 <SantaFe108> Kevin
10:43:46 <Forestbewithyou> aurum
10:45:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Was that Aurum? Controls kicked me off
10:45:25 <Forestbewithyou> yes
10:45:54 <Eric> :-D
10:45:57 <Forestbewithyou> lol
10:46:52 <Eric> I really do need to set a timer on that capture....if someone captured one in the last 30 seconds, probably don't need another one :-P
10:47:08 <Eric> Would help with multiple people trying to be helpful
10:47:51 <Forestbewithyou> yea
10:48:30 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> True Eric. Controls kicked me then I tried to get them back and they kicked me again. By the time I got them back it was over. :P
10:48:40 <Forestbewithyou> RIP
10:48:42 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Would have made a great close up/
10:48:57 <Eric> Yes, you can see in the recording how choppy the camera was
10:49:21 <Eric> Yes, it looked really nice if the camera actually cooperated!
10:49:42 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Yep. I think when I tried to get it back it was during another down time.
10:51:35 <Eric> Nobody entered OF?
10:52:08 <Forestbewithyou> I guess not...
10:52:17 <ynpvisitor52> Aurum 1043 replay
10:52:20 <Forestbewithyou> who wants to
10:52:28 <Eric> You Forest!
10:52:34 <Forestbewithyou> what tiem :)
10:52:52 <Forestbewithyou> someone got it
10:53:32 <SantaFe108> Ryan got it I think
10:53:56 <Forestbewithyou> no I think someone else logged it
10:54:00 <Forestbewithyou> he did the get video
10:54:17 <SantaFe108> Weird
10:54:49 <Forestbewithyou> I never write down times of geysers because I never know how far behind my stream is.
10:55:31 <Forestbewithyou> when I said Aurum I was worried that my stream was like 5 min behind or something
11:05:53 <KorbenC> /
11:05:59 <KorbenC> I am back from my walk
11:06:10 <Forestbewithyou> Nice you missed Aurum
11:06:20 <Forestbewithyou> thats about it
11:06:24 <KorbenC> at least I didnt miss SB
11:06:29 <Forestbewithyou> fair
11:06:42 <KorbenC> Ryan, I thought you were gonna grab that OF?
11:06:51 <Forestbewithyou> he did a get video
11:07:07 <KorbenC> Myg
11:07:18 <KorbenC> Mug**
11:07:38 <KorbenC> CB and Craig are there, thats nice
11:07:45 <KorbenC> Ryan, you get 50% credit :P
11:11:13 <SantaFe108> left pocatello ID south and passed some amazing basalt pillars
11:11:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Those are pretty cool
11:11:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Good truck stop by them.
11:12:04 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Great cinnamon rolls.
11:12:17 <SantaFe108> I 15 rides right on top of the lava flow and its spectacular
11:13:12 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It was awesome before the safety project. Lava right to the edge of the road.
11:13:19 <SantaFe108> Kevin, you said yesterday the chief had 14hr delay?
11:13:25 <SantaFe108> I missed what you said
11:14:07 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It was 17 hours late into Victorville. I guess both units totally died at Raton.
11:14:13 <SantaFe108> Wow
11:14:32 <SantaFe108> Did they get a tow?
11:14:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> New units
11:15:42 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Only did a 45 second stop in Barstow.
11:15:48 <SantaFe108> I saw the chief coming down the Cajon on Friday on my way to YNP
11:16:18 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Been a long time since I have seen Amtrak in person.
11:16:51 <SantaFe108> I'm going to be taking chief on August 5
11:18:38 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hope you don't get one of the bad ones! Where are you taking it to?
11:19:49 <SantaFe108> Chicago to Riverside, CA
11:20:03 <SantaFe108> California or bust
11:21:12 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> As of late it is bust. Been about 4 to 5 hours late for the last 5 days. Those P42's are straining.
11:22:29 <SantaFe108> They haven't got long before Chargers replace then
11:23:29 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> This week may speed that up. Between the heat and the hills they don't do well but they are 30 years old!
11:24:04 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> My favorite was the Pepsi can Dash 8B.
11:25:18 <ynpvisitor52> 1106 mugwump
11:25:29 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor52, thx
11:26:08 <SantaFe108> Imagine museums with p42's in the future
11:26:11 <SantaFe108> Lol
11:27:54 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They do deserve it though. Very different engine that lasted a long time. I was amazed how much more fuel efficient they were than the Dash 8s.
11:28:34 <SantaFe108> It would be interesting to see museum excursions led by ex Amtrak units
11:29:37 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I got a kick out of old time geyser gazer John Muller. I told him I drive an antique diesel engine (Alco RS-2). He told me there was no such thing as an antique diesel engine.
11:30:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> There is a SDP40F at our museum.
11:31:35 <SantaFe108> I love cowl units
11:32:19 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They are interesting. It is the one in Maersk paint.
11:32:48 <SantaFe108> Down here our most recent loco addition has been our ATSF FP45 in warbonnet scheme
11:33:17 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I like the warbonnet. Looks best in F7 though.
11:34:49 <SantaFe108> If our museum could get a hold of an f or e unit in warbonnet... omg
11:35:27 <SantaFe108> We do have an up e8a so kinda close-ish
11:35:55 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> E8 is an F7 on steroids.
11:36:31 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> UP 844 gets a lot of railfans for us.
11:37:07 <SantaFe108> As it should
11:37:56 <SantaFe108> I forgot, which is your museum? You told me earlier
11:38:27 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Nevada State Railroad Musuem in Boulder City
11:38:56 <SantaFe108> Nice
11:39:20 <SantaFe108> Down here is Southern California Railway Museum in Perris
11:39:47 <SantaFe108> Used to be Orange Empire Railroad Museum
11:40:58 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> One of my bucket list places. Love the PE. My Son and I were talking about checking it out when they do the flat track motorcycle races.
11:42:11 <SantaFe108> It's around $150 to run on the electric lines per hour if you want to operate
11:43:09 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> That could be fun. It is $250 an hour for the 844 (and others) here.
11:44:03 <ynpvisitor52> 1135 mugwump
11:45:50 <SantaFe108> That's alot cheaper then our prices lol
11:58:23 <KorbenC> can someone make a getvideo for the OF for me? I need lunch
11:59:04 <Forestbewithyou> I can
12:07:46 <ynpvisitor82> s/s 1201

13:42:57 <LindaG> Hi all
13:43:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi
13:43:16 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
13:43:57 <SantaFe108> Hi linda
13:45:19 <LindaG> Hi SantaFe108, KorbenC, Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡,
13:45:53 <LindaG> Just spent 4 hrs researching and signing up for Medicare. What a drag
13:46:23 <LindaG> Guess Im officially old
13:47:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I started with that October 28th and I am still not sure it is all working. :P :P :P :P :P :P :P
13:48:00 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> If there was something that could go wrong it did. If it couldn't possibly go wrong, it did anyway.
13:48:32 <LindaG> πŸ˜„ it's crazy. It was really the drug plan that was cumbersome. Eventually gotta close your eyes and pick one. Lol
13:50:04 <LindaG> Alright I didnt hear any 'oh no Linda, you are not old' 😝
13:51:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> In turtle years you are young.
13:51:27 <LindaG> πŸ™‚
13:51:54 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> We won't mention dog years....

13:56:59 <SantaFe108> It was very good, I waited about 40 mins before it went
13:57:54 <SantaFe108> Height estimates ranged from 385' to 420'
13:57:55 <Betty on train> Not too bad. It was your first?
13:58:03 <SantaFe108> Yes it was my first
13:58:20 <Betty on train> Cool
13:58:28 <SantaFe108> I was at middle deck
14:02:30 <KorbenC> yay, I am under another severe thsm watch :D :D
14:03:23 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Would you believe my Hawaii package finally made it on the delivery truck yesterday?

14:05:01 <SantaFe108> Korben you going to get rained in?
14:05:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> There was another package with it. At 9:36pm they delivered the other package and took my Hawaii package back to the post office.
14:05:18 <KorbenC> SF, no, but I may go storm spotting
14:06:29 <SantaFe108> Wish there were storms in socal :p
14:06:50 <KorbenC> wait, I thought you were from Santa Fe :p
14:07:15 <SantaFe108> My username is Santa Fe locomotive 108
14:07:34 <KorbenC> ah, Kevin has another train lover
14:08:42 <SantaFe108> Lol we were talking about the chief earlier today
14:08:53 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Santa Fe 108 is an FP45 in warbonnet paint.
14:09:08 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, I looked it up :)
14:09:47 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I knew he was one of us when the user name showed up.
14:11:35 <SantaFe108> Death valley np says they aren't getting below 95Β° F at night and sometimes it's only 100β—‹
14:11:49 <SantaFe108> Β°*
14:12:17 <LindaG> Well I learning I k ow a warbonnet is 😁
14:12:27 <LindaG> *know
14:13:53 <SantaFe108> One of the best styles of any locomotive
14:13:59 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> One of the best paint schemes on a train ever.
14:14:08 <LindaG> The fp45 Santa fe is attractive
14:14:31 <LindaG> I like it! πŸ™‚
14:15:17 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have it in N scale along with a full Southwest Chief passenger consist.
14:16:15 <SantaFe108> Theres a sf fp45 in ho from athearn
14:16:32 <ynpvisitor102> Tunnel kicked me out :-p
14:16:45 <SantaFe108> I believe its number 107, maybe I can renumber it to 108
14:17:14 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> That would be a good project.
14:18:16 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have a Kenefick Business car that I am going to turn into the Cheyenne. I got to ride in the Cheyenne through Feather River Canyon pulled by steam!
14:18:29 <SantaFe108> Wow lucky
14:18:41 <ynpvisitor102> LC is ie
14:18:58 <SantaFe108> My grandpa has tons of NYC ho scale when he was in a model club
14:19:06 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Any one of the three is awesome but put them together and you are in train heaven.
14:19:57 <SantaFe108> My great great grandpa was an engineer for NYC in the steam era
14:21:27 <SantaFe108> My grandpa has his documents from the 1880's
14:21:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I am the one on with the camera in the yellow shirt on the left at 2:18.
14:23:13 <SantaFe108> Wow what a scenic place to catch it
14:24:48 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> We rode from Sacramento to Portola.
14:27:21 <SantaFe108> Amazing
14:28:08 <SantaFe108> Haven't been on a steamer in a while, last time was Ghost Town & Calico Railroad at Knott's Berry Farm
14:29:15 <SantaFe108> 3 ft narrow gauge being hauled by RGS 41
14:30:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It was a great trip. The business car has sofas and chairs along with a kitchen and dining room. There were 10 of s and we had a waiter and a cook.
14:31:46 <SantaFe108> Wow full service excursion
14:33:14 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It was the same car they had on the Big Boy at the end for the LA to Barstow ride. Tickets for that ride were $15,000 a person.
14:33:50 <SantaFe108> Expensive, but that's once in a lifetime stuff
14:34:47 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> For sure. Mine was free. I knew the executive in charge of the area.
14:35:02 <SantaFe108> Smooth
14:36:09 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I remember asking the waiter for a coke. "Is that a regular coke, a diet coke, or perhaps a pepsi sir?"
14:37:49 <SantaFe108> Both sodas? They got everything covered
14:42:47 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> The food was awesome. Chicken breast for lunch and New York steak for dinner served on railroad china and crystal stemware.
14:45:58 <SantaFe108> I remember the railroad China at cal state railroad museum
14:46:14 <SantaFe108> They had a fully decked Santa fe aluminum diner
14:47:55 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Nice. We did Operation Lifesaver presentations in the Silver Lariat which is a stainless steel dome diner.
14:52:42 <ynpvisitor103> China has railroads?
14:53:01 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, west cable trains is pulling an engine, heritage?
14:55:42 <SantaFe108> Some day I want to ride Alaska Railroad in Goldstar with the dome car
15:00:35 <SantaFe108> Hello forest
15:00:50 <Forestbewithyou> hello
15:01:52 <Kat> Forestbewithyou, Hi, my 3 Sandhills were back today!
15:02:07 <Forestbewithyou> Awesome!
15:02:25 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Alaska RR would be fun
15:04:03 <LindaG> Kat, nice
15:06:06 <ynpvisitor102> 1455 Mugwump replay
15:14:57 <ynpvisitor82> that was quite the preplay
15:15:09 <KorbenC> bbl
15:24:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Wish we had Turban times
15:25:03 <ynpvisitor82> No one seems to post them anymore :(
15:31:37 <SantaFe108> I have yesterday's 1300 to 1500 in my notebook
15:31:43 <SantaFe108> For turbab
15:31:46 <SantaFe108> n*
15:32:28 <ynpvisitor11> Lion trying
15:32:50 <SantaFe108> Joe hasn't updated his grand code yet for 1523
15:33:12 <SantaFe108> Yesterday
15:34:41 <ynpvisitor82> !%23 yesterday says Grand code 1
15:35:07 <ynpvisitor82> 1523
15:36:07 <Forestbewithyou> but not with Grand initiated or if turban and vent quit
15:36:14 <Forestbewithyou> stuff like that
15:36:17 <SantaFe108> I commented what I observed from 1230
15:36:20 <Forestbewithyou> I am assuming
15:36:25 <SantaFe108> D5/G1Q
15:36:52 <Forestbewithyou> well if you make an inbasin report it will have higher priority than the wc observation
15:36:57 <ynpvisitor82> From the camera you can only guess
15:37:20 <Forestbewithyou> if you were in the park SantaFe108, you can make an inbasin report
15:37:34 <KorbenC> just had a nice round of storm spotting, .5 inches of rain, 67 mph wind speeds, 0.75 inch hail, and amazing lightning
15:37:39 <Forestbewithyou> cool
15:37:43 <SantaFe108> nice
15:38:05 <SantaFe108> how would I make one? Just specify in the comment I was there?
15:38:23 <Forestbewithyou> no you would enter it as an eruption
15:38:27 <SantaFe108> Oh ok
15:38:38 <Forestbewithyou> like you are logging any other kind of geyser and add the grand code there
15:38:55 <Forestbewithyou> it should take higher priority
15:39:30 <KorbenC> SF, you having a problem with GT?
15:39:41 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, how was your final test?
15:40:00 <Forestbewithyou> I will tell you in pm's korben
15:40:14 <ynpvisitor82> Sfe
15:40:23 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Wow. My Hawaii package finally showed up!
15:40:45 <ynpvisitor82> SFe which were you in basin for yesterday
15:40:49 <KorbenC> WFO Pueblo has been notified that hte storm is still quite severe :)
15:41:46 <SantaFe108> Yes
15:41:51 <SantaFe108> ynpvisitor82,
15:42:38 <SantaFe108> My entry didn't take priority, it became a different entry
15:43:23 <ynpvisitor82> SantaFe108, it is primary now
15:43:32 <SantaFe108> Ok thanks
15:44:06 <LindaG> #82 has the power 😁
15:44:51 <ynpvisitor82> But you threw today's prediction off when you mistakenly entered 1523 today
15:45:52 <Forestbewithyou> why is the other still listed seperatly then
15:46:28 <SantaFe108> Can the prediction be fixed?
15:46:48 <ynpvisitor82> No but once entered Gt updates and does not correct when mistake is removed
15:47:11 <Forestbewithyou> well thankfully grand should be sometimes soon
15:47:28 <SantaFe108> Sorry about that
15:47:39 <ynpvisitor82> yes then the predict will be good :)
15:47:55 <Forestbewithyou> don't sweat it
15:47:57 <Forestbewithyou> SF
15:48:13 <ynpvisitor82> SantaFe108, no big deal we all have done it :)
15:48:14 <Forestbewithyou> There is a NPS prediction they can use
15:48:29 <SantaFe108> Beginners mistake i suppose
15:48:46 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> And the Earth will keep spinning.
15:49:01 <ynpvisitor82> Nope all of us do it from time to time :)
15:50:46 <SantaFe108> I also need to submit West triplet for that grand eruption
15:51:00 <SantaFe108> Surprised it showed up

16:09:06 <Betty> yes, Spa/Grotto area
16:09:26 <LindaG> Betty, I read that from afar and thought it said 'beer event' and wondered that they entered THAT into GT

16:33:20 <Forestbewithyou> hmm
16:33:24 <SantaFe108> When I get to St George it should be better
16:33:45 <Betty> crtl+F5
16:34:13 <LindaG> I usually just reboot my phone
16:34:31 <SantaFe108> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, I'm southbound I-15 in between cedar city ut and st George ut
16:34:57 <SantaFe108> Chatters list just reappeared
16:34:59 <Betty> like Gibbs, Linda? ;-)
16:35:32 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> You could get a bit iffy there.
16:35:50 <LindaG> Betty, ?
16:36:04 <Betty> NCIS
16:36:23 <LindaG> Betty, oh, dont really watch it
16:36:29 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> He was rough on the phones.
16:36:41 <LindaG> Betty, is that his fix all?
16:36:53 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They had a drawer full of new phones for him Linda.
16:37:04 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, oh lol
16:37:28 <Betty> new old phones, Kevin
16:37:50 <LindaG> When in doubt, reboot πŸ™‚
16:38:01 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Yep. They were flip phones. He called them PDAs
16:39:09 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> He wasn't good on email either. The early episodes were great. The last few years Yawn.
16:39:55 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, I've watched a few episodes
16:47:00 <SantaFe108> Woah
16:47:25 <SantaFe108> Just passed through a burn area that wasn't here on my way to ynp
16:48:09 <SantaFe108> A bit of fire retardant is still on the road
16:50:36 <SantaFe108> Found it yesterday a tire blew and the sparks started the fire
16:50:47 <SantaFe108> It grew to 3000 acres before it was contained
16:51:30 <LindaG> Wow
16:54:02 <Benton Harbor> Yes. It closed I-15 for quite a while. Fires are pretty common in that area.
16:56:47 <Benton Harbor> I guess the St George city fireworks set a mountain ablaze on the 4th of July. Wonder if they will do any on the 24th.
16:58:34 <SantaFe108> I saw that fire on the 4th
16:59:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> whats the event on 24th?
16:59:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> St Georges Day is 23 April
17:01:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> looked like Mug?
17:01:21 <LindaG> It did
17:01:57 <LindaG> Wheres mr. Mug?
17:02:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> gone to GF maybe?
17:02:39 <SantaFe108> Dr. Mug will see you now
17:06:13 <Benton Harbor> July 24th is the day Brigham Young said β€œThis is the right place” and the journey west stopped.
17:06:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, thanks
17:07:03 <Benton Harbor> Called Pioneer Day in Utah. Big holiday.
17:07:38 <LindaG> πŸ‘
17:08:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> so not a day for the bars to be packed?
17:10:29 <Benton Harbor> They may be now.
17:11:15 <Benton Harbor> I think Utah is Far East california now.
17:11:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> is NV Middle East?
17:12:28 <Benton Harbor> We have been east california for a long time.
17:14:37 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
17:15:10 <Benton Harbor> Night Betty
17:15:43 <KorbenC> Bye Betty
17:16:54 <KorbenC> good Lion surging
17:21:21 <Benton Harbor> BH looked dead all day.
17:21:52 <KorbenC> BH giantess duel? :P
17:25:34 <KorbenC> Nice MUg
17:25:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah
17:25:53 <LindaG> Good one
17:25:53 <KorbenC> lucky pan over, or should I say "very skilled"
17:26:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> the 1700 one is missing from GT too
17:26:32 <KorbenC> And I have started my favorite count down, 1 hour until the 1st hurricane advisory of hte season is prepared. T-1 Hour till Korben's summer is a success, haha.
17:27:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> huricanes are bad tho
17:27:05 <KorbenC> I already saw SB, and Beehive this year, so those are 2 things down, 1 hurricane is left :P and I will never forgive Chirstina.
17:27:59 <KorbenC> as long as it does not hit anything as a Hurricane, I want them if they are a hurricane that will end up hitting land as a hurricane, I dont like them
17:29:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> having seen aftermath of Katrina and Sandy, I dont like them
17:30:18 <LindaG> Amen to that
17:30:37 <KorbenC> I hate any hurricanes that hit land. A hurricane right in te smack middle of the Pacific is better than one hitting Florida, which is why I like hurricanes that dont hit land :)
17:31:24 <KorbenC> Lion
17:31:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> i remember driving to NYC the Friday after Sandy ... seeing the rows and rows of utility trucks heading up I-95 to NJ and NY
17:32:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> good to see all the help coming, but not that it was needed. didnt see too much impact in midtown Manhatten tho
17:33:06 <LindaG> We were inundated with utility trucks it was amazing
17:33:09 <KorbenC> That is the stuff I hate too see, I love hurricanes in the middle of nowhere though :)
17:33:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> i headed into NY for opera weekend ....... decided to go as the hotel was open and the opera was still on
17:34:17 <Benton Harbor> Surprising
17:34:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC
17:35:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> opera is the only reason I go to NY ... not going there for a while now
17:35:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> they wont let me in anyway
17:35:32 <LindaG> Had a lot of friends whose first floor flooded
17:36:04 <KorbenC> some huge spike on YFT, enough to scale back the line to the point where it is barely visible
17:36:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah i bet. after Katrina it was amazing, the first two or more beachfront blocks were wiped out, gone
17:37:23 <Benton Harbor> Losing you house is bad. Losing your lot is terrible.
17:37:39 <LindaG> A lot boats in places they shouldnt be
17:38:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> actually the roadway protected the lots ...... all the houses and trees washed away, just slabs left.
17:38:51 <LindaG> Yeah Jersey wasnt quite that bad
17:38:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> ten the fist sign of regrowth was the Waffle Houses that sprouted up every 2 mies
17:38:57 <Benton Harbor> I had a friend who lost his house and lot to a flood in Santa Clara Utah.
17:39:35 <LindaG> They really are still rebuilding
17:39:57 <LindaG> Alot of houses being raised up
17:40:27 <LindaG> a quick 50 or 60k
17:40:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> just let the water flood through
17:43:50 <LindaG> Dinner bell
17:45:06 <KorbenC> next Lion 18:50 using Jarno's method l 6m 56s
17:45:32 <KorbenC> +/- 5 minutes with his window
17:46:51 <KorbenC> Dwarfs ie
17:52:13 <SantaFe108> lol pump stopped bursting when people started looking at it
18:01:43 <KorbenC> Hey kc
18:01:53 <kcmule> hola
18:18:20 <KorbenC> HI Kevin, did it loose your usename?
18:18:46 <Benton Harbor> Changed iPad
18:19:56 <albee> They have their doggies on the boardwalk
18:20:18 <Benton Harbor> Couple of idiots
18:20:57 <kcmule> wow crazy
18:21:32 <ynpvisitor30> clearly they are special
18:31:22 <SantaFe108> yesterday someone's dog freaked out at grand and ran off the boardwalk before owner could pull the leash
18:31:47 <SantaFe108> grabbed it right before it walked into the overflowing runoff
18:32:14 <KorbenC> that happened at Aurum, dog almost ended up walking right over the cone, got scared by a bird behind it
18:33:27 <SantaFe108> People need to board there dogs or dont go
18:33:42 <SantaFe108> Their*
18:34:00 <KorbenC> yup
18:34:03 <ynpvisitor61> Ever figure out who was on the radio calling sprinklers and little cubs?
18:35:03 <KorbenC> 61, that was SantaFe108 hahaha
18:35:36 <SantaFe108> apologies, it was my first time
18:35:47 <SantaFe108> Dont worry I got an earful from craig
18:35:55 <KorbenC> but you wont be doing that again :P
18:36:05 <SantaFe108> Promise
18:36:27 <ynpvisitor61> You met Craig?
18:36:38 <KorbenC> Hi Craig
18:36:41 <albee> we have witnessed bison tossing and gouging a dog nd a griz kill one, while the owners watched in horror.
18:37:20 <KorbenC> albee, tahts why you dont take your dogs anywhere that dangerous, but if that happened to my dog, the bear would be the one regreting it, lol
18:37:48 <SantaFe108> Dont want another Bear Event like this morning lol
18:38:04 <albee> ?
18:38:15 <KorbenC> This mornings bear event happens all the time in YNP, I think all of us have seen bears on the BW.
18:38:24 <ynpvisitor61> It was a non event
18:38:31 <albee> ok
18:38:36 <KorbenC> or hsould I say "event"
18:38:51 <ynpvisitor61> I spent the next hour trying to find it
18:38:52 <KorbenC> I have a picture somewhere of a bear wandering up behind Daisy ie
18:39:09 <KorbenC> wait SF, you did meet Craig?
18:39:24 <SantaFe108> No but I'm sure I talked to him without realizing
18:39:37 <SantaFe108> I met multiple gazers
18:39:48 <SantaFe108> And Dave L at SB
18:39:56 <ynpvisitor61> You'd know it if you talked to Craig
18:40:30 <KorbenC> Well I would say Craig introduces himself, he (totaly not 61) and the person he was with (CB I think??) made me play the guessing game :P
18:40:43 <KorbenC> wouldn't say Craig**
18:40:54 <SantaFe108> I didnt bump in to cb yesterday sadly
18:41:25 <KorbenC> I still dont know how thats possible, I bumped into her at my SB this year and I had no idea who she was, I jsut guessed, lol
18:41:29 <SantaFe108> I met a couple and the lady was in an electric scooter, we recorded the turban cycle
18:41:56 <KorbenC> remember, not everyone you meet in YNP is a gazer :)
18:42:20 <SantaFe108> They were calling on radio
18:42:32 <KorbenC> OK, they are probably a gazer :)
18:44:09 <SantaFe108> I also saw a group of 3 that I saw at SB the day before
18:44:47 <KorbenC> Dep full
18:45:13 <KorbenC> How was Giant looking and F&M SF?
18:45:44 <SantaFe108> F&M was silent
18:45:58 <KorbenC> how long did you wait?
18:46:19 <SantaFe108> Not very long so dont take my word for it
18:46:42 <KorbenC> was there ANY splashing? or audible huffing?
18:47:13 <SantaFe108> I dont remember
18:47:23 <SantaFe108> On Saturday there was splashing at Fan
18:47:50 <KorbenC> when you were there and Fan vents were quiet, was a small vent next to Mortar doing anything?
18:48:05 <SantaFe108> Not that I saw
18:48:15 <KorbenC> OK
18:48:33 <SantaFe108> Heard from multiple gazers Giantess had a big blue bubble form for a bit
18:49:32 <KorbenC> did they give a height?
18:49:54 <SantaFe108> No just that a bubble formed
18:50:38 <Forestbewithyou> hmm thats interesting
18:58:51 <LindaG> Huh my little town installed a couple of electric car charging stations, moving with the times
18:59:48 <Forestbewithyou> Thats awesome!

19:32:22 <KorbenC> That was nice, just took 10 minutes to email my principle asking some questions, I have never seen someone get back to me so quickly :)
19:33:07 <KorbenC> either we missed Lion, or it had a series of one, but the BW does not look very wet.
19:33:09 <Forestbewithyou> LMAO

19:36:29 <Forestbewithyou> that has never happened to me
19:36:41 <Forestbewithyou> I wait 3 hours at most

19:50:43 <SantaFe108> All baking together aren't we
19:50:58 <SantaFe108> That's colder then I thought
19:51:05 <Forestbewithyou> same
19:51:09 <Forestbewithyou> but not by much
19:51:26 <Forestbewithyou> the low is much more comfortable at 87
19:51:33 <Benton Harbor> Laughlin is also a hot spot.

19:57:27 <SantaFe108> Last time I saw the chief coming down the pass
19:57:51 <Benton Harbor> Could you believe all those diesels in Salt Lake City?
19:58:36 <SantaFe108> Didnt see too much rail activity in slc
19:58:59 <SantaFe108> Did race a frontrunner train down the highway
20:00:02 <Benton Harbor> Those aren’t as common as I expected.
20:00:46 <SantaFe108> Did see some four axle diesels with local freight
20:02:42 <Benton Harbor> Utah Railway operates some stuff there with interesting power. Mostly orange now but used to be red and gray.
20:04:39 <SantaFe108> Definitely Utah railway I saw
20:05:30 <Benton Harbor> They are part of the Gennesse & Wyoming now.
20:06:44 <SantaFe108> Oof
