01:06:23 <Michael> nice moolit Grand
01:06:39 <Michael> moonlit
01:30:58 <Michael> And an OF-Lion dual to cap things off. Nice catch, camop.
07:12:51 <ynpvisitor76> quick look at lion
07:13:00 <Ryan> Turban ie
07:13:21 <ynpvisitor76> thanks
07:13:40 <Ryan> MArmot Cave ie too
07:14:21 <Ryan> Unless we saw Turban near start, GRand should be safe for another 20 mins or so
07:19:50 <ynpvisitor28> Lion ini
07:19:56 <JarnoO> morning all
07:20:10 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jarno
07:21:09 <johnu> Good morning JaroO!
07:21:29 <Ryan> Nice timing on Lion!
07:22:38 <johnu> :thumbsup:
07:27:42 <Ryan> I'd be getting back to Grand
07:30:02 <JarnoO> weak initial at only 6m05s. Next Lion @ 0834Β±5m if series continues
07:30:18 <JarnoO> some other geyser wants screen time too, hint hint
07:30:23 <JarnoO> OT
07:33:15 <johnu> Is that it JarnoO?
07:33:34 <JarnoO> that's indeed OT (Old Tardy)
07:33:52 <johnu> :thumbsup:
07:33:58 <JarnoO> OF wants screen time too. Grand and OF never go together well
07:45:17 <JarnoO> looks like OF has stalled
07:51:51 <johnu> good show for early risers
07:52:55 <johnu> ok to go to grand?
07:54:14 <JarnoO> absolutelyt
07:54:42 <JarnoO> once someone did a /getvideo for OF you're more than fine to go elsewhere
07:54:59 <JarnoO> also Daisy near center of window :)
07:55:09 <johnu> :thumbsup:
07:55:15 <johnu> thanks!
07:58:02 <LindaGp> Morning all
07:58:11 <JarnoO> morning Linda
07:58:18 <LindaGp> JarnoO, hi
07:58:20 <Forestbewithyou> Hi linda
07:58:26 <johnu> morning Linda
07:58:39 <LindaGp> johnu, Forestbewithyou, hi
07:59:00 <LindaGp> Looks like a nice day
07:59:15 <johnu> :thumbsup:
07:59:53 <LindaGp> johnu, 😊 usually steamier in the morning
08:00:12 <johnu> For sure!
08:00:23 <johnu> is that grotto behind grand?
08:01:48 <LindaGp> Slightly left of grand
08:02:09 <johnu> :thumbsup:
08:02:46 <LindaGp> The steam can be deceiving
08:03:15 <Ryan> I do think Rift is ie
08:03:25 <johnu> yes, this is my first early morning and it was beautiful in the basin
08:03:30 <Ryan> West Triplet is either ie or very close
08:05:02 <johnu> west triplet?
08:05:43 <Ryan> Its a cave behind the trees left of Grand.
08:05:51 <Ryan> uh. Geyser. It is a geyser.
08:05:59 <Ryan> Guess its a cave, too...
08:06:20 <Forestbewithyou> Ryan likes both of those thigs
08:06:22 <Forestbewithyou> things
08:07:03 <Ryan> Turban or Rift is ie, hard to tell
08:07:10 <JarnoO> meanwhile in the Netherlands... Ever seen a bike traffic jam?
08:07:29 <ynpvisitor82> johnu, remember where OT was? If you go left there is a small set of trees, west triplet is behind those.
08:07:29 <JarnoO> supposedly Twitter identifies it as sensitive content or something. No idea why
08:07:35 <Ryan> JarnoO. Yes
08:08:18 <SantaFe108 in A> hello linda
08:08:23 <LindaG> SantaFe108 in Arizona, hi
08:08:25 <Forestbewithyou> Thats really interesting
08:09:13 <LindaG> JarnoO, where are they all going
08:09:46 <JarnoO> they're going to Schiermonnikoog, one of the Frisian island. You can only get there by boat
08:09:58 <Ryan> JoarnoO, when Giant hot periods begin there is a mass exodus on the bike trail of gazers on bikes. BAsically a stampede.
08:10:14 <LindaG> Gonna need a bigger boat πŸ˜‹
08:10:22 <Ryan> Then there is the Giant Bike Pile. No one locks their bikes up, they just get thrown on to each other under the tree at Grotto.
08:10:58 <Ryan> But, yes, Fan and Mortar and Giant both make serious bike jams when trying to negotiate through tourists, ringing your bell, and basically screaming "ON YOUR LEFT!"
08:11:30 <Ryan> I couldnt find my photot of a giant bike pile, so here is a concilatory photo of Beehive
08:12:00 <JarnoO> I doubt that's possible, Linda. The Wadden Sea is very shallow (during low tide you can even walk on the seabed). Deepening it is pretty much impossible since it's a protected nature reserve
08:12:23 <LindaG> JarnoO, πŸ‘
08:12:40 <JarnoO> Ryan, are you sure that isn't Daisy with a bigger cone? :P
08:12:57 <Ryan> haha
08:13:09 <johnu> nice rainbow
08:13:36 <Ryan> Thanks, John.
08:13:45 <Ryan> Early morning Beehives are the best Beehives
08:13:55 <johnu> :thumbsup:
08:14:09 <LindaG> johnu, all that steam on left in back by boardwalk is oblong
08:15:00 <johnu> got ya thanks Linda
08:15:55 <Ryan> Almost positive West Triplet was ie.
08:16:22 <Ryan> Total lack of steam now, combined with Rift being ie makes me think the steam I did see was WT nearing the end of its eruption
08:18:26 <Ryan> Ive got to pee. Enjoy the start of Grand while I am gone....
08:18:41 <LindaG> Ryan, TMI
08:18:45 <johnu> LOL! good luck!
08:18:49 <Ryan> The likelihood a geyser is about to erupt is typically directly proportional to how badly I have to go to the bathroom.
08:19:09 <johnu> ;)
08:19:24 <Ryan> With a borderline asymptotic spike while I actually am going to the bathroom.
08:19:37 <Ryan> Case studies: Beehive, Aurum, Fan and Mortar, and Steambaot.
08:20:08 <ynpvisitor4.2> Being nervous can do that
08:21:56 <Ryan> back
08:22:26 <Ryan> LindaGp:
08:22:44 <ynpvisitor4.2> Ryan, now you must serve a 2 minute penalty for TMI talk
08:22:59 <Ryan> 4.2: :D
08:23:06 <johnu> Linda, Linda, Linda!
08:23:51 <LindaG> πŸ˜‹ it's TRUE but they dont need to talk about it. Lol
08:24:06 <Ryan> I think Turban is ie now
08:24:23 <ynpvisitor4.2> Exactly, Linda
08:24:39 <LindaG> ynpvisitor4.2, πŸ™‚
08:25:00 <ynpvisitor4.2> Prudence was the book for our kids on the still laugh about it today
08:25:52 <LindaG> ynpvisitor4.2, never heard of it, I'll have to google
08:26:12 <Ryan> I apparently grew up in an exceptionally different world where bodily functions of almost any kind - physical or mental - are pretty blatantly discussed.
08:26:31 <Ryan> Certainly we discussed the realities of things far worse than needing to pee...
08:27:05 <ynpvisitor4.2>
08:27:12 <johnu> sheltered life here...
08:27:45 <JarnoO> Lion almost due
08:28:09 <LindaG> ynpvisitor4.2, πŸ™‚ cute.
08:29:17 <ynpvisitor4.2> The "Is it a bird bath" cracks us up almost everytime for some reason
08:30:46 <LindaG> Ryan, I dont care really Ryan, I typed that TMI more in jest
08:31:20 <Ryan> :p
08:31:59 <ynpvisitor4.2> Must be a slow news day:)
08:32:12 <LindaG> ynpvisitor4.2, πŸ™‚
08:33:40 <KorbenC> I am back, had a nice walk
08:33:43 <JarnoO> can you put Grand and Lion in the same view, JohnU?
08:33:52 <SantaFe108 in A> WB korben
08:33:56 <ynpvisitor4.2> KorbenC, did you step on a crack?
08:34:05 <JarnoO> (or to who is driving the cam)
08:34:25 <KorbenC> 4.2, what?
08:34:47 <ynpvisitor4.2> are way too young KC:D
08:35:33 <johnu> johnu on duty...
08:35:36 <JarnoO> good roar there
08:35:54 <KorbenC> Morning everyone, Hi SF
08:36:01 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
08:36:02 <KorbenC> I see we have another Hurricane :(
08:36:45 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
08:36:53 <JarnoO> forecast to be low-end cat. 2
08:37:49 <LindaG> JarnoO, yeah probably when it gets to me
08:43:04 <Ryan> I am starting to think we missed Grand
08:45:56 <JarnoO> Arty ie
08:46:30 <ynpvisitor4.2> NJo field reports today?
08:46:42 <JarnoO> only the 0719 Lion
08:48:05 <JarnoO> Lion looked pretty much done for. Series of one
08:58:32 <Ryan> People still at Grand?
08:58:36 <Ryan> Rift off
09:00:35 <JarnoO> I guess people at Grand means that it might not have gone yet. Though if they're all tourists, then it's tricky
09:00:46 <Ryan> Turban 0851ns
09:01:29 <JarnoO> Grand at 8h. Am thinking it did not go yet
09:01:42 <JarnoO> been a while since we had an 8h interval, too
09:01:48 <ynpvisitor4.2> Or, it could have gone at very beginning of window
09:02:19 <johnu> if it went off it was during OF
09:02:26 <Ryan> Actually I lied that looks like Turban now
09:03:16 <Ryan> Turban 0859ns, d5
09:03:30 <Ryan> Rift was at 0851 still ie
09:06:47 <Ryan> With turban still having eruptions I dont think weve missed grand
09:07:26 <KorbenC> also remember that I waited till 10o'clock 2 hours after the window ended for it :)
09:07:47 <Ryan> Its a war of attrition now. I am holding off lunch
09:07:56 <Ryan> and... *GASP* another bathroom run!!!
09:08:21 <ynpvisitor4.2> That's nice
09:09:25 <LindaG> OT ie
09:10:32 <KorbenC> Jarno, FYI, I wont be able to grab the OF's today
09:10:37 <LindaG> Woah
09:11:09 <Ryan> back, to quote Prudence: bye bye pee-pee!!
09:11:26 <JarnoO> I'm getting them at the end of the day. Want to finish September 1996 of the OFVCL-EV today before anything else
09:13:09 <ynpvisitor4.2> So, Ryan....correctme if I'm are reading potty boooks as a 25 year old?:D:D
09:13:14 <Ryan> I'd high tail back to grand
09:13:29 <Ryan> One is never too old to read potty books.
09:13:56 <KorbenC> me scratches his chin
09:14:05 <Ryan> "How to have a clean poop while backpacking" is the best google search I have ever had to do.
09:14:11 <LindaG> KorbenC, lol, you had to be here
09:14:52 <KorbenC> I am reading though chat history, please help me :P
09:15:00 <Ryan> You haven't lived until you've debated the best method of going to the bathroom underground, either. Cavers should write a potty training book it would be hysterical.
09:15:35 <KorbenC> Ryan, are you making fun of me because at F&M it was "I have to go use the restroom, now it will erupt" or osmething like htat, lol
09:15:35 <Forestbewithyou> oh brother
09:16:12 <Ryan> Everyone, and I mean *everyone* has a horror story of having a bowel emergency underground. Typically it leaves everyone dying of laughter and literally rolling on the floor.
09:16:23 <LindaG> KorbenC, no I postedTMI when Ryan said he had to pee.
09:16:30 <Ryan> KC, no, I mentioned this morning that I had to pee and it was controversial :P
09:16:34 <Ryan> GRAND
09:16:36 <KorbenC> Grand
09:16:36 <KorbenC> .
09:16:36 <KorbenC> .
09:16:37 <KorbenC> .
09:16:37 <KorbenC> .
09:16:37 <KorbenC> .
09:16:48 <KorbenC> 8h 12m
09:16:51 <Ryan> Yay!!
09:16:56 <LindaG> Ryan, it wasnt controversial you made it that way
09:17:09 <Forestbewithyou> I guess only 2 alerts were needed today
09:17:11 <ynpvisitor47> :|
09:17:26 <ynpvisitor41> I wish this group would learn to mind its pees and queues
09:17:33 <KorbenC> Ryan, LMFAO
09:17:45 <LindaG> ynpvisitor41, πŸ˜‹πŸ™‚
09:17:53 <Ryan> \_(Β°-Β°)_/
09:18:12 <Forestbewithyou> ~ ( > _ < 。 ) οΌΌ
09:18:13 <Mike J> Forgot I hadn't signed in. I want credit for that one.
09:18:25 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Mike Hi Eric
09:18:36 <KorbenC> Hi Mric :) (Mike+Eric)
09:18:57 <LindaG> Mike J, hi
09:18:57 <Ryan> I can not begin to explain the experiences I have had with relieving myself underground or in the backcountry.
09:19:15 <Ryan> The passive thought alone makes me cackle and go into a thousand yard stare.
09:19:16 <Eric> Hi Forest & Coop :-D
09:19:19 <Eric> Morning all
09:19:22 <KorbenC> I releived myself at Norris without using the restroom, but I am sure we all do that :P
09:19:46 <ynpvisitor47> some things are better left unsaid on a public chat room
09:19:53 <Forestbewithyou> yea Korben TMI
09:19:55 <Eric> ^^^
09:20:14 <KorbenC> public-rest-room? is that what this Chat is turning into:p :P
09:20:15 <Mike J> And now, as the conversation goes on, I'm beginning to wish I had maintained anonymity.
09:20:26 <Eric> Grand is nice :-D
09:20:33 <Ryan> I think anyone who has spent more than 12hrs in the backcountry has probably had an "oh my god" moment when something they ate the day before wrought revenge.
09:20:36 <Forestbewithyou> I am wishing I had done the away command and just minimized this tab
09:21:08 <JarnoO> Forest, maybe /quit was better to keep your sanity :)
09:21:15 <Mike J> Change of subject. I get to proofread the Sput, so I have the advanced copy. KorbenC is that your article on the Sawmill Complex?
09:21:25 <KorbenC> Oui
09:21:25 <Forestbewithyou> Fair Jarno... very fair
09:21:26 <Eric> wow..nice burst from Grand
09:21:31 <JarnoO> (if you still have any left of that, that is)
09:21:38 <Eric> Hey everyone, grand is erupting :-P
09:21:44 <Forestbewithyou> yayyyy
09:21:54 <KorbenC> Jarno, I have my sanity :p
09:22:10 <Ryan> Man, all that water makes me have to pee again....
09:22:23 <Forestbewithyou> seriously Ryan....
09:22:24 <Mike J> Its a good article with good information. Something for everyone to look forward to.
09:22:38 <Eric> Have we watched mug at all today?
09:22:41 <KorbenC> Mike, did the table with the mixed cycles have 2 minors or 1 minor eruption? :P The table got messed up and the 2046 was a maj even though it was meant to be a min :)
09:22:42 <Mike J> (I'm trying to stay out of it. Trying. Trying. Trying.)
09:23:10 <Ryan> Its mostly just entertaining... :lol:
09:23:21 <Ryan> Actually its entirely just entertaining
09:23:22 <LindaG> Not
09:23:26 <ynpvisitor47> seriously... there is fun humor, then there is just jr high potty stuff.... let's bring it up a few notches
09:23:50 <Mike J> KorbenC Haven't dug into that yet. I'll check and Pat will get back to you if it is a problem.
09:23:58 <KorbenC> lets change the subject, anyone have any plans for the weekend (Ryan, if you say peeing I am going to throw you down Hurricane Vent)
09:24:08 <Ryan> On a trip to MExico a friend dropped down Sontano de los Golondrinas (Cave of the Swallows) which is a 1,124ft rappel. On touchdown the follow exchange happened:
09:24:29 <Mike J> KorbenC 2046 shows as a minor, so looks like we're good.
09:24:35 <KorbenC> Thanks
09:24:39 <ynpvisitor101> Grand looks like an exclamation mark!
09:24:52 <Ryan> "Off rope" "How was it" "Wonderful!" "Any comments? " "Yeah send down the toilet paper" "OK, its coming down with the next person" "No like throw it down with a streamer I cant wait that long..."
09:25:18 <Mike J> Let me cast the first vote to throw Ryan off the island.
09:25:28 <Forestbewithyou> ^^^
09:25:28 <Mike J> No matter how much I liked that last story.
09:25:33 <LindaG> I second that
09:25:40 <Forestbewithyou> I third that
09:25:42 <ynpvisitor47> if only
09:25:48 <ynpvisitor4.2> So, how about a second Grand?
09:25:52 <Ryan> Something about being face to face with over a thousand feet of free fall reduces you to jr. high levels of humor. Its a great coping mechanism with staring death in the face...
09:26:00 <KorbenC> why not keep him, we can throw him down Sawmill and see if it makes it erupt :)
09:26:18 <LindaG> KorbenC, πŸ™‚
09:26:40 <JarnoO> Ryan, in Dutch we call such humor "galgenhumor", literally "gallows humor"
09:26:52 <Ryan> Its an even better coping mechanism after you metaphorically shake hands with death and youre trying to cope
09:26:55 <KorbenC> hahhahahahahahhahahahahahahaha
09:27:18 <johnu> this geyser board has gone to crap!
09:27:20 <Ryan> Best gallows humor I have ever heard was from a caver in Cuba.
09:27:22 <ynpvisitor101> There's a humorous D-Day story like that (the TP incident). A group finally got through the firestorm to the top of the beach, and one of the soldiers had an immediate need, so the rest of the squad had to wait for him to accomplish that task.
09:27:42 <Ryan> This is unrelated to bathroom activities.
09:27:54 <Ryan> Whats the difference between falling 6ft and falling 60ft????
09:27:58 <ynpvisitor101> Go Ryan
09:28:08 <Ryan> One sounds like *smack* AHHHH! and the other sounds like AHHHHHH *smack*
09:28:09 <ynpvisitor101> Factor of 10?
09:28:38 <Mike J> Okay Ryan, you've redeemed yourself with that joke.
09:28:39 <ynpvisitor101> Doing OK so far!
09:28:43 <Mike J> (And I will be stealing it.)
09:29:14 <Ryan> Credit goes to Borrego Onedas from Vinales, Cuba.
09:29:36 <JarnoO> b1 done
09:29:40 <JarnoO> Β±13m
09:30:03 <Ryan> The classic one is that when you fall down a pit you need top shout "ROCK" loudly so everyone else gets out of the way.
09:30:19 <johnu> b1 JaroO?
09:30:30 <JarnoO> first burst
09:30:40 <JarnoO> Grand can have multiple bursts during an eruption
09:30:41 <ynpvisitor101> Won't be a second
09:31:03 <Ryan> There was a caver firned in KY who triggered a long and horrifying rockfall. When it stopped his friend calls down: "Hey buddy, are ya dead?" "No" "Need toilet paper?" "Too late..."
09:31:16 <johnu> Thanks, so keep the cam on it?
09:31:20 <JarnoO> unfortunately no. Surely hoped Grand would redeem that 8h+ interval with a muli-burst eruption, but luck isn't with us
09:32:06 <JarnoO> JohnU, you would definitely want to do that if the first burst lasts less than 10 minutes, preferably shorter than 9 minutes
09:32:06 <Ryan> Eventually that humor just becomes pervasive in all aspects of life. Its enough to not make jokes like that at work.
09:32:31 <johnu> :thumbsup:
09:32:58 <JarnoO> should there be a second (or third, fourth, etc.) burst, it most likely happens within the first minute after the preceding burst
09:33:23 <johnu> :thumbsup:
09:33:25 <Ryan> I was reading a great book yesterday that just came out about caving, and it noted that caving was a great equalizer... with enough mud everyone just ebcomes androgynous clones...
09:33:39 <JarnoO> looked like some good boiling on Giantess
09:34:15 <Ryan> related, some spectacular photography in a slideshow from this years convention.
09:34:16 <JarnoO> southeastern rim boils, to be precise
09:34:27 <Ryan> Lots of work in there by myself, and Will.
09:35:54 <Ryan> This photo took best in show. Which I find unbelievably hilarious.
09:36:17 <JarnoO> I'll check that video out tonight with a snack. A bit too long to watch right now :)
09:37:35 <Dmitri Ivanovic> I started playing that video and I thought I was getting a really important alert from my computer.
09:38:13 <Ryan> Its a long slide show.
09:38:23 <JarnoO> morning Jimbo. Using part of Mendeleev's name today?
09:38:38 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Correct!
09:39:58 <Dmitri Ivanovic> I think Giantess will keep teasing us with boils but will finally erupt again in the middle of blizzard at night.
09:40:25 <JarnoO> that would be typical
09:40:26 <Ryan> Its not teasing us....
09:40:47 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Do you think it's warming up?
09:40:49 <Ryan> Teasing us is hours of 3-4ft boils every 2 minutes on the north side of the pool....
09:41:01 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Ahh, I see
09:41:02 <Ryan> That was teasing us, and it was infuriating.
09:41:24 <JarnoO> let me guess - it didn't go after all?
09:41:28 <Dmitri Ivanovic> I think the correct term for that would be "torturing"
09:41:41 <Ryan> And oddly connected to my trend of geysers trying to erupting while I had... issues..... I had a stomach virus.
09:42:08 <Ryan> Or food poisoning. Either way it was bad.
09:42:19 <Ryan> JO, no. The wind picked up and it flat lined.
09:42:24 <Ryan> Giantess hates wind.
09:42:37 <Dmitri Ivanovic> So it was trying to erupt, but you weren't having any difficulty at all.
09:42:42 <Ryan> A nice breeze from any direction seems to cool the pool off.
09:43:08 <Ryan> No, I had no difficulties, and occasionally it was a concerted eruption...
09:43:20 <Dmitri Ivanovic> One of the Webcam-witnessed Giantess eruptions, years ago, was during a snow fall.
09:43:32 <Ryan> I think it was the last Giantess
09:43:58 <Eric> Thanks for sharing that video Ryan...some great stuff in there!
09:43:59 <Ryan> July 2014 was that period of big boils. Clark Murray woke me up at 0500 to run outside for it. It was like 6 hours of being on the edge.
09:44:31 <Ryan> Twice Clark told us to be quiet because he was listening for the thumps to get a start time... we were stunned it didnt erupt.
09:44:50 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Painful.
09:44:57 <Ryan> There are few things as adrenaline inducing as a 4ft poll-wide boil on Giantess sending water everywhere.
09:45:05 <Dmitri Ivanovic> In more ways than one.
09:45:16 <ynpvisitor44> Giantess thumps are awesome
09:45:32 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Seismo picks them up, right?
09:45:41 <JarnoO> it does
09:45:48 <ynpvisitor44> Yes
09:45:49 <Eric> When it's working :-(
09:45:51 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Thought so
09:45:52 <Ryan> One gazer told me that some thumps were enough that he could feel them in his knees and spine.
09:46:22 <Ryan> That almost inconcievable. But the person who told me is a known understater.
09:46:32 <Ryan> So it was p[robably worse.
09:47:26 <ynpvisitor44> They are very strong
09:47:30 <JarnoO> though I have my doubts YFT will pick Giantess up recognizably with HHZ (and thus SHZ) malfunctioning. HHE and HHN do still work properly, so those might
09:47:48 <Dmitri Ivanovic> OK, taking a brief break for a late breakfast. Smoked salmon on mini-bagels. BTW, the Brooks Falls cam is great watching right now, if you like watching bears catch and eat salmon.
09:47:53 <Ryan> I also didnt believe clark about the wind, but sure enough as soon as the breeze picked up the boils just stopped.
09:48:53 <Ryan>
09:48:58 <Ryan> Thanks, Jimbo! Wow
09:49:26 <JarnoO> "What are you thinking, Giantess?" "Thinking about going, Beehive. Would make for a ni... I feel wind! Not today, thank you!"
09:49:51 <Ryan> Beehive had an outrageously tall eruption that day.
09:49:58 <Ryan> Measured at like 186ft or something
09:50:04 <Eric> I see no bears on the cam :-P
09:50:14 <Ryan> The whole hill did crazy stuff.
09:50:51 <Ryan> Isnt it like o-dark-30 thirty there?
09:50:57 <Ryan> Oh wait, 24hr days
09:50:59 <Eric>
09:51:32 <Ryan> There was a bear there not long ago
09:51:38 <Eric> No, same timezone as here :-P
09:52:12 <Eric> riffles has a bear shredding a salmon.
09:52:59 <Ryan> I cant believe we can have multiple smooth high def cameras from Katmai.....
09:53:03 <Ryan> but not Yellowstone.
09:53:12 <ynpvisitor11> Daisy very
09:53:14 <ynpvisitor11> soon
09:54:00 <Eric> Agree Ryan...there is absolutely no reason we shouldn't have HD cams in all basins.
09:54:11 <Eric> Daisy looking nice
09:54:14 <Eric> with no wind
09:55:30 <Ryan> Katmai is out there....
09:55:36 <JarnoO> morning Chris
09:55:42 <FluffyO> morning :)
09:55:49 <Ryan> Like, Yellowstone can hold a candle to the remoteness and isloation of the Katmai region.
09:55:56 <Eric> Morning FluffyO
09:55:56 <LindaG> FluffyO, mor ing
09:56:00 <Ryan> cant*
09:56:27 <Eric> Yep, it's politics Ryan, not technology
09:56:29 <ynpvisitor4.2> Yep...not a high priority for YNP and besides not many people go to Alaska
09:57:15 <FluffyO> they can barely keep 1 cam up at YS, i cant imaging trying to run one in every basin
09:58:40 <Ryan> Brooks Falls is smaller than I thought
09:58:49 <Ryan> that or the Alaska bears are bigger than I remember
10:00:23 <Eric> Pump!
10:00:23 <ynpvisitor4.2> Alaska bears are much taller than their runt YNP relatives
10:00:26 <Eric> minor
10:00:43 <Eric> Kodiak Grizzlies are big
10:00:44 <Ryan> Ive got the text!
10:01:24 <Eric> I had a friend in college that counted them as his summer job :-P
10:01:26 <johnu> Have fun Linda!
10:01:51 <LindaGp> johnu, thx
10:01:58 <Eric> wow...3h41m aurum interval yesterday
10:02:02 <johnu> :thumbsup:
10:02:05 <Eric> Pump!
10:02:13 <Eric> minor again
10:02:14 <Ryan(lunch)> Ill send another text, Eric!
10:02:27 <Eric> wait for pump major
10:02:42 <Eric> Nobody likes pump minor txt
10:03:56 <LindaGp> No 3c
10:04:21 <LindaGp> Mug
10:05:21 <LindaGp> Lion ie
10:05:51 <ynpvisitor47> nice cam captures, Linda
10:06:18 <Eric> Grab a mug of lion :-D
10:07:01 <Eric> Jeff must be working :-P
10:07:10 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor47, thx
10:07:55 <LindaGp> Cam is slow
10:09:23 <johnu> cam is very slow...
10:10:04 <LindaGp> johnu, easy to lose.control when it's like this, doesn't respond quick enough
10:12:29 <LindaGp> Bee at 1d 20h 4 min
10:14:30 <Eric> Wish you guys had the ability to force reboot the camera, it would probably help.
10:15:14 <Eric> Not that difficult to add a remote power switch that can be controlled by a web interface.
10:15:23 <Eric> They use them all the time for servers.
10:15:26 <LindaGp> 3c
10:15:45 <Eric> Wow...those are some nice 3c bursts
10:16:33 <LindaGp> tall
10:16:52 <Eric> yes...I have sat there many times and never seen 3c that big
10:17:10 <Eric> or that this active
10:17:17 <Eric> or this active
10:18:09 <johnu> :thumbsup:
10:18:28 <Eric> john are you a new camop?
10:18:35 <Eric> or old and just joining the chat?
10:18:55 <johnu> new cam op...
10:19:00 <Eric> Welcome!
10:19:05 <ynpvisitor15> 1004 mugwump
10:19:06 <johnu> thanks!
10:19:29 <Eric> I run this if you have any questions, comments feedback, just let me know.
10:19:58 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor15, thx
10:20:08 <johnu> Thank you! Just learning the lingo! :)
10:20:33 <LindaGp> Mug
10:20:46 <LindaGp> little one
10:20:58 <Eric> couple helpful tips, there is a help section to the right that has lots of useful links and here are some extra commands you can use here to make things a little more useful:
10:21:23 <Eric> Lots of lingo to learn :-D
10:21:31 <LindaGp> 16 min interval
10:22:36 <ynpvisitor4.2> There will be a quiz at the end of your shift
10:22:50 <Eric> The /gt geysername is my favorite command, lets you get quick look at a geysers recent history and a few averages.
10:22:50 <Forestbewithyou> LOL 4.2
10:22:50 <LindaGp> 😊
10:23:09 <Eric> I think his shift is over already :-P
10:23:09 <Forestbewithyou> don't worry its only 200 multiple choice questions
10:24:25 <ynpvisitor4.2> The only way to avoid the quiz, is to silently leave thru the back door:)
10:24:28 <johnu> My shift is over but I will be back in just a bit! Thanks for the info Eric!
10:24:56 <Eric> No problem john, thanks for helping our parks!
10:25:23 <Eric> I can't wait to get up here! soooon -
10:25:32 <johnu> :thumbsup:
10:25:40 <Forestbewithyou> nice Eric
10:25:44 <LindaGp> Ill try for another mug before OF,might not make it
10:26:09 <Eric> Can you get great fountain Linda? super zoom button?
10:26:21 <LindaGp> Eric, 😁
10:26:59 <LindaGp> Eric, we need a drone
10:27:22 <ynpvisitor47> has there been any update on the OF bridge?
10:27:31 <Eric> If they can fly one on Mars, you would think we could have one in YNP :-P
10:27:53 <LindaGp> Eric, Kevin's RR cam has a drone that checks out train derailments
10:28:01 <ynpvisitor47> if anyone observed GF, they may not even be able to get close enough to OF basin to upload
10:28:16 <Eric> Wow...see, RR guys have better cams than YNP :-(
10:28:40 <LindaGp> Eric, their cam runs on solar
10:28:44 <Eric> Not with starlink!
10:28:55 <Eric> High speed internet will be available in the park within a year.
10:29:00 <Eric> anywhere!
10:29:10 <ynpvisitor92> Mugwump 1020
10:29:15 <Eric> We have a sun too Linda...actually the same one :-P
10:29:21 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor92, thx
10:29:34 <Eric> Thanks 92 :-D
10:29:36 <LindaGp> Eric, 😊
10:29:38 <ynpvisitor47> hey Joe
10:29:42 <Eric> I miss you :heart:
10:30:12 <Eric> cam down?
10:30:15 <ynpvisitor47> I miss when Joe chatted
10:30:18 <ynpvisitor92> me too :)
10:30:35 <ynpvisitor4.2> and Dave
10:30:45 <ynpvisitor47> yes, and Dave
10:30:48 <Eric> Well...let's not go to far 4.2 :-P
10:30:53 <KorbenC> and Dave :)
10:30:58 <KorbenC> hahaha
10:31:10 <ynpvisitor47> and that kid named Cooper, where did he go
10:31:11 <Eric> ok...we miss Dave too
10:31:21 <LindaGp> Posted mug video
10:31:36 <Eric> There are a lot of people that have come and gone here that I miss chatting with.
10:32:02 <KorbenC> Riverside
10:32:17 <Eric> good eye
10:32:48 <LindaGp> Mug has less than a minute
10:32:50 <Eric> I am surprised how empty the Inn lot is
10:33:01 <Eric> I know it's closed, but heck, great parking spots.
10:33:35 <LindaGp> 3c
10:34:05 <LindaGp> Aurum static
10:34:30 <Eric> yep, 1032
10:34:49 <LindaGp> Darn
10:35:42 <LindaGp> At least we have a time
10:37:28 <ynpvisitor53> Cactus Kevin, you working on the new addition to your train layout? A burnt out bridge like the one in Arizona?
10:40:10 <LindaGp> Bbs
10:42:02 <LindaGp> Back
10:45:44 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Front
10:45:56 <Eric> Left
10:45:59 <Forestbewithyou> right
10:46:03 <LindaGp> UP
10:46:10 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Sideways
10:46:15 <Forestbewithyou> down
10:46:16 <LindaGp> LOL
10:46:23 <Eric> GRR
10:46:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Sounds like an old 60's song.
10:46:56 <ynpvisitor53> Not one guyser in the bunch
10:46:58 <Eric> Or the rodeo song :-P
10:46:59 <LindaGp> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡,any hummingbirds?
10:47:28 <Eric> That song is not for the prude :-P
10:47:28 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> No, just hot chickens
10:48:22 <LindaGp> πŸ™„
10:48:35 <LindaGp> Hot chicken wings
10:48:53 <ynpvisitor4.2> New form of hokey pokey?
10:49:02 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They seem to be doing well in the heat though.
10:49:13 <LindaGp> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, That's good
10:49:57 <LindaGp> oh my OF making me wait...again
10:50:38 <LindaGp> OF
10:52:05 <ynpvisitor53> They do call it faithful for a reason. I guess it is being faithful in keeping you waiting.
10:52:23 <LindaGp> Short
10:54:10 <JarnoO> hm. Guess I was behind a fair bit
10:54:26 <LindaGp> Oops didn't know u were there
10:55:13 <ynpvisitor4.2> I miss the UGB
10:55:40 <JarnoO> 1m59s
10:55:44 <Eric> Hopefully next year we can all get there and safely enjoy it.
10:56:32 <ynpvisitor4.2> At this point, it is hard to see any sense of normalcy
10:57:29 <LindaGp> 3c
10:58:32 <LindaGp> Wow big 3c
10:59:19 <KorbenC> might mean a big mug :)
11:00:24 <LindaGp> or not 😊
11:00:24 <Eric> glad to see perseverance is back into regular mode.
11:00:46 <Eric> a vaccine will come this fall 4.2
11:01:21 <Eric> Russia has already approved and is using a vaccine, whether it is good or not, I don't know...but vaccines are starting to emerge that work.
11:01:29 <LindaGp> 3c may have stile mugs thunder
11:01:35 <KorbenC> well, I know I am staying online until I get a vaccine, I dont want to risk getting sick and then giving it to other people like teachers.
11:01:38 <LindaGp> *stole
11:01:47 <Forestbewithyou> Agreed Korben
11:02:08 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Found a train picture for you Korben. Even from Colorado!
11:02:13 <LindaGp> πŸ‘
11:02:14 <Eric> Yes, going to school is a bad idea right now! There are other ways to bridge the social connection with online tools.
11:02:30 <KorbenC> Thats spectacular Kevin
11:02:54 <LindaGp> Wow nice train pic
11:03:12 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, I assume from the bridge that is Fort Morgan area?
11:04:15 <KorbenC> oh, it says that at the bottom, haha
11:04:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Looks like it. Great shot.
11:04:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I love how it is framed in the rainbow.
11:05:32 <KorbenC> Same
11:06:00 <KorbenC> Kat under TS warning
11:06:30 <KorbenC> and Hurricane watch :(
11:06:45 <Forestbewithyou> uh oh
11:06:46 <Forestbewithyou> ...
11:06:50 <LindaGp> KorbenC, she's preparing
11:07:02 <Forestbewithyou> gotta get them sandbags
11:07:32 <KorbenC> I am trying to use my Kenetic Weather power to make it go father East
11:07:47 <JarnoO> so far you've only brought it closer west, Korben...
11:07:48 <LindaGp> 3c
11:08:14 <JarnoO> nice solid columns
11:08:16 <KorbenC> LindaGp, do you know how high she is above sea level?
11:08:22 <KorbenC> JarnoO, Im trying!
11:08:37 <KorbenC> not trying to bring it West, trying to bring it east**
11:08:45 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> She can't be too much higher.
11:09:03 <KorbenC> because I know Storm surge will be isolated 10ft already.
11:09:08 <JarnoO> isn't much of Florida at or just above mean sea level?
11:09:09 <ynpvisitor4.2> Linda, do you still have a "Move to Montana" brochure that dave sent you? Might want to send Kat a copy.:)
11:09:41 <KorbenC> Jarno, I think the highest natural point is like 350ft
11:09:59 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor4.2, 😊
11:10:14 <LindaGp> She's closer to water than I am
11:10:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I'll take heat over snow and hurricanes anytime.
11:10:19 <Dmitri Ivanovic> I lived in Florida in the 80s in grad school. We had a hurricane offshore in 1985. They showed storm surge maps of Pinellas County for Cat 5 conditions. I was safe then because I was 42 feet above sea level.
11:10:45 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Where I was living would become an island with a Cat 5 surge into Tampa Bay.
11:10:48 <JarnoO> oh... So there are places which have a lower elevation difference than the Netherlands... fun stuff
11:11:03 <KorbenC> Jarno, whats your elevation?
11:11:07 <ynpvisitor96> Splish splash
11:11:07 <LindaGp> 3c is real active
11:11:37 <JarnoO> 0 feet I think
11:11:39 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I am at 2149 at my house.
11:11:42 <JarnoO> or a bit higher
11:11:50 <LindaGp> I forget mine, or as like a h feet or somthing
11:11:59 <LindaGp> *100 feet
11:12:01 <Eric> 6" Jarno :-P
11:12:04 <KorbenC> I am at 7K I think
11:12:16 <KorbenC> Jarno, WOW, have you ever been above treeline?
11:12:25 <JarnoO> never
11:12:30 <LindaGp> Mug
11:12:45 <KorbenC> nice
11:12:47 <LindaGp> good one
11:12:50 <KorbenC> long one :)
11:13:01 <KorbenC> still going
11:13:03 <KorbenC> done
11:13:04 <ynpvisitor47> wow
11:13:17 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Mug is stealing the show this week.
11:13:17 <Forestbewithyou> I actually don't know my elevation
11:13:51 <ynpvisitor47> mug laments my leaving
11:13:51 <ynpvisitor96> Sometimes my twenty minute delay is a good thing. Great Mug
11:14:17 <Dmitri Ivanovic> 20 minutes?
11:14:31 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor96, I've learned to enjoy my delay
11:15:00 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I know mine only because I surveyed it.
11:15:57 <JarnoO> I live actually 3 feet above mean sealevel
11:15:58 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi Rail on Flagstaff east Linda.
11:16:29 <ynpvisitor96> Mine went away and then came back suddenly. No idea why. I really notice the difference between control and stream. ~ 40 seconds.
11:16:37 <KorbenC> Hi Jimbo
11:17:19 <Dmitri Ivanovic> Hi Korben
11:17:39 <KorbenC> I see you are covering the entire periodic table today :)
11:17:44 <ynpvisitor96> Dimitri I was exaggerating for effect :)
11:18:07 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have to drive only with controls a lot now with the delay. Makes it hard.
11:18:10 <JarnoO> not far away are actually a few villages which have a mean elevation of -16 feet
11:18:30 <LindaGp> 3c seems like it's a good I indicator for mug.
11:19:07 <LindaGp> At the end of 3Cs if mug doesn't go, it failed
11:19:26 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Death Valley (Badwater Basin) is 282 feet below sea level.
11:19:35 <ynpvisitor96> I don't have the delay on the NPS cam feed. No idea
11:20:10 <ynpvisitor96> Eric would know :)
11:20:39 <LindaGp> It's the flash I think or lack of it
11:21:05 <ynpvisitor47> LindaGp, from the parking spot, you can usually see mug make a surge when it fails
11:21:07 <KorbenC> Thats the 3rd time ive looked at Bee and thought BSB was ie, that darn white spot
11:21:24 <ynpvisitor96> I am at a loss why one would use Flash and the other not?
11:21:50 <JarnoO> because you didn't give it permission to do so maybe?
11:21:54 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor47, πŸ‘ wish we could see that from cam
11:22:20 <ynpvisitor47> LindaGp, I tried to get good video of it with a zoom lens, but it doesn't do it justice
11:22:22 <LindaGp> When 3C stops I wait for mug, this morning it failed
11:22:28 <Eric> The NPS feed is delayed about 30 seconds I believe
11:22:56 <Eric> for EVERYONE if you are talking about their public webpage
11:23:01 <Dmitri Ivanovic> In case anyone was interested in why Pinellas County, FL, (current population 975K+) is a hurricane concern, check out this elevation map.
11:23:11 <Eric> The controls have a direct to camera feed, so less delay
11:23:25 <Eric> I am at 270ft BTW :-D
11:23:26 <ynpvisitor96> I find it close to control. I will check Sunday. Thanks E
11:23:32 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Where in NM are you SantaFe?
11:25:14 <Eric> Not sure how....the data is reaching you 30 seconds later :-P
11:25:19 <KorbenC> am I the highest living person on the chat?
11:25:31 <Forestbewithyou> probably
11:25:43 <ynpvisitor47> I don't chat when I get high
11:25:45 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I am not going to touch that one Korben....
11:26:04 <KorbenC> I know I live higher that Lori and Craig (those are only other people who live at Altitude I think)
11:26:12 <Forestbewithyou> I think I am around 800ft
11:26:16 <LindaGp> Might be a no go on mug after that big one
11:26:35 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I just got some pen stuff from Colorado Springs.
11:26:38 <Kent> Mid level 4350
11:26:51 <ynpvisitor47> <-- 4500 ft
11:27:24 <LindaGp> Kent, hi
11:27:38 <Kent> Hey Linda
11:28:01 <LindaGp> Kent, wanna do a bee dance for us
11:28:02 <Forestbewithyou> nope I lied closer to 1000ft
11:28:21 <Kent> Too old. Call CC or Betty
11:29:17 <LindaGp> Kent, πŸ˜ƒ
11:29:27 <Eric> haha
11:29:55 <LindaGp> Manahawkin is 24 ft above see level
11:30:02 <Eric> Yep, 99% of the US population I would guess is below your elevation Coop
11:30:46 <LindaGp> Party
11:31:14 <Eric> Yep, just double checked Parks page streaming cam viewer 30-40 seconds behind here if you are using Flash.
11:31:19 <LindaGp> mug
11:31:42 <Eric> Probably 45-50 behind live stream
11:31:43 <LindaGp> now I didn't see a 3c
11:31:47 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Lots of customers for that one.
11:31:52 <Eric> Yes, nice mug
11:32:01 <Eric> mug now on park cam
11:32:11 <Eric> guess that was only 20 seconds
11:32:28 <Eric> ohh, no, 40 seconds
11:33:03 <Kent> Thanks Eric. I will pay closer attention
11:33:20 <JarnoO> 3C 1132
11:33:25 <LindaGp> Now 3c again
11:33:48 <LindaGp> Huh I wonder if another mug
11:34:11 <ynpvisitor4.2> It's okay...I've been delayed for a long time
11:34:22 <Eric> I really wish we could get the park to adjust the technology for the video before flash dies. We could get all the players to be only about 10-15 seconds behind with some adjustments.
11:36:10 <ynpvisitor4.2> It's harder to make fun of a number, isn't it?:D
11:37:13 <Kent> I figured you were evolving, perhaps in beta
11:37:25 <LindaGp> Guess no mug for now
11:37:42 <ynpvisitor4.2> haha Kent
11:38:01 <ynpvisitor4.2> Had to be the first person to log on as a decimal
11:38:24 <Eric> If anyone has connections to park personel who can push the streaming provider to adjust their settings, send them this article:
11:38:41 <ynpvisitor4.2> or, an upgrade from 4.1 like you are suggesting
11:38:47 <Eric> If we can get low latency HLS turned on with pixelcaster, then we could support it here!
11:38:55 <Eric> and turn flash off for good!
11:39:26 <Kent> Flash dies at the end of the year?
11:39:33 <Forestbewithyou> yes
11:40:00 <Eric> Yep, chrome will stop supporting it and we will all be delayed if the park doesn't ask the streaming provider to fix their feed.
11:40:19 <Eric> We probably need a coherent campaign.
11:40:21 <Forestbewithyou> Edge will as well
11:40:44 <JarnoO> Eric, maybe this will help in the meantime:
11:40:51 <JarnoO> came across it yesterday
11:41:17 <JarnoO> though apparantly far from done
11:43:21 <LindaGp> 3c
11:44:29 <JarnoO> I'm thinking 3C can serve as an indicator for Mug both before and after an eruption of the latter
11:44:47 <JarnoO> based on 1 case where 3C erupted after Mug :P
11:45:14 <LindaGp> And maybe it's more vigorous leading up to it.
11:45:26 <LindaGp> Darn OF
11:45:54 <LindaGp> Mug
11:46:13 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> :)
11:46:17 <Kent> I'm waiting, but you done good!
11:46:19 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Awesome.
11:46:25 <JarnoO> glad you waited, Linda :)
11:46:42 <LindaGp> JarnoO, me too, that was pretty explosive
11:46:46 <JarnoO> phenomenal eruption from the get-go
11:49:23 <LindaGp> I think 3c is more vigorous leading up to mug
11:49:27 <Eric> Thanks Jarno, that project is definitely not far enough along, but I did post a note in their issues section about supporting RTMP streaming.
11:49:39 <LindaGp> Brb
11:50:00 <KorbenC> bye Linda
11:50:29 <JarnoO> no problem, Eric
11:51:17 <Forestbewithyou> lunch time brb
11:51:19 <LindaGp> Back
11:51:26 <JarnoO> cya Forest
11:51:35 <LindaGp> KorbenC, just had to get up a second
11:51:42 <KorbenC> ah, ok
11:51:42 <Eric> hmm, looking at the ffmpeg web assembly project, I doubt RTMP will ever work that way as sockets have severe restrictions in the browser.
11:52:15 <Eric> I think fixing the hls stream to be low latency will be the best path forward for everyone.
11:52:31 <JarnoO> true
12:00:09 <Kent> Eric, on this OF my NPS and Chat streams are within a couple of seconds.
12:00:28 <LindaGp> Lake seismo looks lol hundreds of little SBs πŸ˜‰
12:03:21 <LindaGp> OF
12:09:45 <LindaGp> think missed daisy
12:10:49 <LindaGp> 3c
12:13:29 <LindaGp> Wow 3c is strong
12:18:04 <LindaGp> Mug might have failed
12:18:29 <JarnoO> not sure
12:18:41 <JarnoO> it can take a while
12:18:48 <JarnoO> Mug
12:18:49 <LindaGp> Mug
12:19:02 <LindaGp> lol not!
12:19:05 <Eric> nice
12:19:26 <JarnoO> definitely a tourist catcher, that's for sure :)
12:21:19 <LindaGp> Indy
12:21:46 <Forestbewithyou> awesome

12:22:11 <LindaGp> Sent text
12:22:26 <Eric> thanks!
12:22:28 <Eric> Woot
12:22:36 <Eric> Nice sized crowd already
12:22:45 <JarnoO> been going for a while. Very strong
12:23:26 <Ryan(lunch)> Yay!
12:23:29 <JarnoO> I guess Bee needed to water the bacteria this time
12:23:34 <Kitt> yay
12:23:43 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Kit
12:24:07 <KevinS> Kitt, Hi Kitt. Missed you in the park this year.
12:24:22 <Eric> BH was tired of Pump taking all the glamore!
12:24:34 <Kitt> I have been on and off this morning, but always seemed to be watching Mugwump
12:24:35 <Ryan(lunch)> That is a nice and strong indicator
12:24:58 <Kitt> I am glad I went to the park in late May
12:25:06 <LindaGp> Splashing
12:25:09 <Kitt> before it became packed with people
12:25:29 <Eric> Yep, I wouldn't want to be out on the BW with all those people.
12:25:56 <Eric> Maybe next year.
12:25:59 <Kitt> curious how many people go home, then find out they have covid
12:26:12 <Kitt> I hope so
12:26:22 <Ryan> Some people will give me holy hell at home here I am sure.
12:26:32 <Kitt> or we will just go to our mountains with our new trailer
12:26:45 <Ryan> Amazing hypocriscy give how most people here treat covid.
12:26:50 <Eric> congrats on a new trailer
12:27:08 <Kitt> no geysers, but lots of wildlife and its peaceful up in the Bighorns
12:27:19 <LindaGp> bee
12:27:38 <Eric> woohoo
12:27:39 <Kitt> nice gush
12:27:39 <Forestbewithyou> yayy
12:28:00 <LindaGp> Txt sent
12:28:02 <Kitt> excellent start
12:28:06 <Eric> man that would be a nice eruption from the bench
12:28:20 <Ryan> I loved that huge curtain of water
12:29:02 <Ryan>
12:29:03 <Eric> sun shining through the water
12:29:06 <Ryan> bears and waterfalls!
12:29:26 <KorbenC> tall one
12:29:28 <Eric> dang people off BW
12:29:36 <Kitt> usual
12:29:39 <Eric> come on lazy people, just walk 100 ft to the clearning
12:30:06 <KorbenC> Some peeps are getting a shower
12:30:26 <Eric> not sure it's hitting the BW coop
12:30:32 <Kitt> I would love it to do a 360 now
12:30:43 <KorbenC> looks to me like the very ends are Eric
12:30:46 <JarnoO> Giantess' runoff appears to be more extensive than last week. Last week there was still a prominent, triangle-shaped white area between dark patches, which now appears to be gone entirely
12:30:48 <Ryan> That beehive was around 145ft
12:31:15 <Ryan> pretty average
12:31:56 <ynpvisitor4.2> Nothing average about Beehive
12:32:15 <Kitt> that would be short for bee Ryan
12:32:22 <Ryan> he bears and salmon are really pretty right now
12:32:45 <Ryan> Really, Kitt? Most eruptions I have actually be able to measure were close to 140-160
12:32:59 <Ryan> Anything opver 160 is getting pretty big
12:33:17 <Kitt> hm, the ones people use to measure averaged about 170
12:33:53 <Ryan> I keep hearing that number but very rarely ever see it.
12:34:00 <Kitt> and during that same time the average Grand measured by Paul was about 140 to 145
12:34:02 <Ryan> I got four last october and I put them on GT for heights I think
12:35:40 <Kitt> back to watering the yard
12:35:57 <Brian G> thanks for the text, that was a nice break
12:36:36 <JarnoO> hm. 4m32s for Bee. Would suggest about 18 to 19-minute lead time for Indicator
12:36:38 <KorbenC> that was a nice Bee
12:36:47 <Ryan> My three Beehive heights are 142ft, 138ft, and 108ft.
12:37:00 <LindaGp> πŸ‘
12:37:03 <Ryan> The 108 was a tad windy
12:37:54 <Ryan> The 142 and 138 were both shot from the river overlook and had a nice and stable 40 ish degree angle at them
12:38:02 <LindaGp> A little water from castlw
12:39:17 <JarnoO> I reckon Indy started just after we panned to the Myriads @ 1209
12:40:53 <LindaGp> JarnoO, most likely
12:41:14 <LindaGp> JarnoO, nice.of it to wait
12:42:08 <LindaGp> JarnoO, the other day insane 3c erupt while mug was
12:42:43 <JarnoO> nice
12:42:43 <LindaGp> Insane=I saw
12:42:48 <LindaGp> 3c
12:44:56 <LindaGp> big 3c
12:50:12 <LindaGp> Mug
12:50:12 <JarnoO> Mug
12:50:24 <LindaGp> wow
12:50:46 <JarnoO> it didn't want to stop :)
12:50:49 <LindaGp> That's the longest I've seen
12:50:59 <LindaGp> 😊
12:51:01 <Forestbewithyou> that was a ncie one
12:51:07 <Forestbewithyou> oh great lindavitis
12:51:47 <LindaGp> Interesting with no steam you can see thenchange in water right bwfore eruption
12:51:52 <LindaGp> Forestbewithyou, lol
12:52:54 <JarnoO> 30 seconds
12:53:12 <LindaGp> Nice
12:53:27 <LindaGp> it's strong today
12:54:25 <ynpvisitor30> wow, that was a great mug
12:54:36 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor30, it was
12:55:24 <LindaGp> It will be interesting to see if it still has energy for next one
12:55:55 <LindaGp>
12:56:12 <LindaGp> *or it skips
12:56:24 <JarnoO> I think either a long interval or low energy
12:56:35 <LindaGp> Yeah
12:57:33 <JarnoO> North rim boils
12:57:46 <JarnoO> and gone
12:59:00 <Ryan> Come on....
12:59:08 <Ryan> I wanna see a 20ft boil
12:59:58 <JarnoO> only 9s
13:00:12 <ynpvisitor82> Mugwump 1250, what a pool looks like when I try to swim :)
13:00:36 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor82, lol thanks
13:00:39 <Forestbewithyou> ...
13:00:44 <Ryan> I barely saw that boil
13:01:35 <JarnoO> love that humor, Joe :)
13:02:17 <LindaGp> I'm literally sure what interval mug is.doing
13:03:08 <LindaGp> *not really
13:04:43 <LindaGp> Must be 15-20 min
13:05:12 <JarnoO> 3C
13:05:18 <LindaGp> Yay
13:05:32 <JarnoO> system recharged I guess :)
13:05:43 <JarnoO> very vigorous
13:05:59 <LindaGp> Go 3c
13:06:25 <JarnoO> I've seen Mugwumps smaller than those 3C bursts. Always nice for geysers to step up their game
13:07:08 <LindaGp> Its true lol
13:09:02 <LindaGp> Wow
13:10:16 <LindaGp> 1mug
13:10:37 <LindaGp> wowee
13:10:42 <JarnoO> that one didn't want to stop either
13:10:43 <Forestbewithyou> wowza
13:10:45 <ynpvisitor30> hmmmm
13:11:09 <ynpvisitor30> it's doing a lot more variety of bursts
13:11:18 <LindaGp> So 20 min interval
13:11:23 <JarnoO> think I saw a burst from MYR-1
13:12:12 <JarnoO> Grotto >2h
13:13:11 <LindaGp> So the interval is longer maybe giving it more time to recharge
13:13:45 <ynpvisitor30> towards the end of the eruption there is a thin pink-cone-ish burst
13:14:07 <LindaGp> On Wed. It had a 13 min interval
13:14:30 <KorbenC> yesterday it had a 6 min interval
13:15:50 <LindaGp> KorbenC, really? Huh
13:21:21 <ynpvisitor79> 1310 Mugwump
13:21:49 <LindaGp> OF soon
13:21:58 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor79, thanks
13:22:51 <JarnoO> thanks Joe
13:25:55 <LindaGp> Won't get this my OF beckons soon
13:25:57 <LindaGp> 3c
13:26:10 <LindaGp> *one
13:26:34 <LindaGp> That was 3c
13:26:44 <LindaGp> thought it was mug
13:26:45 <Eric> Nice long Mug at 1310!
13:26:58 <LindaGp> Eric, It was happy
13:27:46 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Sure I sneak out stealth and you still set BH off just after I leave.
13:28:01 <LindaGp> OF time
13:28:23 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Then you switch to OF.
13:28:43 <LindaGp> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, 😊
13:29:18 <LindaGp> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, bee knew you left
13:29:40 <ynpvisitor9> Eric, look at this one
13:30:54 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor9, that was an amazing mug
13:34:47 <LindaGp> OF
13:37:22 <JarnoO> that was almost a short
13:37:34 <LindaGp> JarnoO, I was thinking same thing
13:37:35 <JarnoO> if only it hadn't rebounded
13:37:48 <Eric> Wow joe, that is probably the best Mug eruption I have ever seen!
13:38:22 <Eric> or whoever 9 is :-D
13:38:37 <LindaGp> Eric, not sure
13:38:44 <LindaGp> It was amazing
13:38:53 <Eric> Yes, long and big!
13:39:07 <Ryan> he
13:40:06 <JarnoO> and just like that, the conversation level dropped like a rock
13:40:27 <Ryan> under a rock?
13:41:01 <Ryan> this week needs to end
13:41:14 <JarnoO> I guess we can classify Ryan's talk as cavespeak :)
13:41:25 <LindaGp> Lc ie
13:41:36 <Ryan> Under A Rock is the watermark ive put on my photos since 2013
13:41:38 <Eric> really?
13:41:44 <Eric> oh, there it is :-D
13:42:36 <LindaGp> Huh inthough little cub was erupting
13:43:10 <LindaGp> It.was
13:43:59 <LindaGp> lighting is getting worse
13:45:59 <LindaGp> Spectators
13:50:41 <LindaGp> No 3c yet
13:50:58 <LindaGp> 3c
13:51:08 <LindaGp> I take it back lighting is bad
13:51:32 <Eric> to bright
13:51:34 <Eric> too
13:51:45 <JarnoO> you'd want the opposite for times like these :)
13:52:07 <Eric> camops have brightness controls I believe
13:52:10 <JarnoO> I wonder if it's possible to adjust the lighting levels manually
13:52:37 <LindaGp> That's it for adjustment
13:52:43 <JarnoO> darn
13:53:01 <JarnoO> so can't go down then :(
13:53:17 <LindaGp> Nope
13:53:45 <LindaGp> wow
13:54:03 <JarnoO> oh well... it's better than having no lighting options whatsoever
13:54:05 <Eric> ya, nice 3c burst
13:54:12 <Forestbewithyou> I have to hop off for a bit so I will be back in a bit
13:54:16 <JarnoO> cya Forest
13:54:18 <Eric> cya forest
13:54:22 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think it needs admin privileges
13:55:18 <LindaGp> Moving it to see what helps
13:59:22 <johnu> I am here and ready to go Linda. Anything unusual or interesting?
13:59:42 <LindaGp> My goodness 3c is stro.g
13:59:57 <JarnoO> Mugwump's been having very nice eruptions. If you keep the cam here for a while, I think you'll have a good chance of seeing it
14:00:05 <JarnoO> 3C too, as you might've read :)
14:00:06 <LindaGp> johnu, ok. Mug is imminent. You.can take it
14:00:23 <johnu> :thumbsup:
14:00:24 <LindaGp> Controls released
14:01:08 <JarnoO> otherwise pretty much business as usual. Perhaps pan over to Giantess once in a while at your discretion for a small chance of boiling
14:01:26 <LindaGp> Now it looked better on cam lighting wise
14:01:34 <johnu> :thumbsup:
14:01:55 <JarnoO> oh. Also Daisy (over)due by now :P
14:02:01 <LindaGp> johnu, I was
14:02:05 <JarnoO> probably going for a triple interval
14:02:16 <LindaGp> LindaGp, ignore that
14:02:19 <johnu> OF and Grand butting heads again...
14:03:06 <johnu> I am not seeing a daisy prediction time?
14:03:39 <JarnoO> we've missed it at least once (twice is actually fairly likely), so no predictions are posted
14:04:07 <johnu> :thumbsup: thanks!
14:04:09 <JarnoO> look for it in maybe 1h45m to 1h50m or so
14:04:14 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Due anytine
14:04:31 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Or gone
14:04:47 <JarnoO> been quite windstill today, so I don't think Daisy will be doing many 2h+ intervals
14:05:11 <LindaG> I think daisy went during OF
14:05:17 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Not any steam now
14:07:22 <JarnoO> Beehive was @ 1227, so you won't see that one anytime soon I think
14:16:12 <JarnoO> Three Crater ie
14:17:49 <JarnoO> 1350 Three Crater lasted >14m. Pretty sure that's a new record or close to one
14:17:51 <JarnoO> steam devil
14:18:08 <JarnoO> and gone
14:18:37 <JarnoO> Mug
14:18:46 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> MugWUMP
14:18:48 <ynpvisitor30> good height
14:21:26 <JarnoO> another one which didn't want to stop. 25s
14:22:56 <Ryan> finally heading out.
14:22:59 <Ryan> Have a good weekend all
14:23:16 <JarnoO> for our tropical storm enthusiasts: NHC will initiate advisories for TD Ten, located near the Cape Verde islands, soon. Was 50/50, then downgraded to 20/20 and then upgraded to 50/50 earlier today
14:23:17 <Betty> afternoon all
14:23:27 <Betty> bye Ryan
14:23:28 <JarnoO> evening Betty
14:24:00 <JarnoO> Mugwump has been performing marvellous today, Betty :)
14:24:10 <Betty> evening JarnoO, hi Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, LindaG
14:24:28 <Betty> nice
14:24:37 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi Betty
14:24:39 <johnu> hi Betty!
14:24:50 <Betty> hi johnu
14:25:35 <JarnoO> last couple of eruptions lasted all over 20 seconds and had excellent height to it. Should also mention 3C, which, to me, looks like it has gained some height since yesterday
14:29:50 <ynpvisitor88> Mugwump 1418
14:31:19 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
14:32:00 <KorbenC> Jarno, TD Ten in Pecific 8pm CVT 1st issue
14:32:50 <JarnoO> Korben: 14:23:16 β€ΉJarnoOβ€Ί for our tropical storm enthusiasts: NHC will initiate advisories for TD Ten, located near the Cape Verde islands, soon. Was 50/50, then downgraded to 20/20 and then upgraded to 50/50 earlier today
14:32:51 <KorbenC> oh you foudn that out while I was walking the dog, lol
14:35:42 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> 118Β° outside right now. Roast chicken in the coop
14:36:48 <ynpvisitor9> my favorite bird is roast chicken
14:38:00 <ynpvisitor9> mug
14:38:16 <JarnoO> weak
14:42:44 <ynpvisitor9> going for an early OF?
14:43:15 <johnu> that would be nice
14:44:25 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Dragon is coming back tomorrow
14:46:21 <Eric> Yep, pretty exciting Kevin!
14:46:29 <Eric> I look forward to see re-entry
14:47:00 <KorbenC> hopefully i am home in time, Kevin, what time MDT?
14:47:00 <Eric> I am very interested in the lunar landers they are working on right now too!
14:47:20 <Eric> They should start testing stuff next year
14:47:36 <Eric> and possibly unmanned missions in 2022
14:48:25 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It says 1415 but no time zone
14:48:45 <JarnoO> then I would assume 1415 UTC
14:48:57 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Since iPad know where I live I assume it is PDT
14:49:29 <Betty> hi Eric
14:49:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Unlock in 0743 EDT
14:49:42 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> is
14:49:47 <Eric> Right now, Behnken and Hurley are scheduled to undock from the space station at around 7:34PM ET on Saturday, August 1st. The capsule will then slowly distance itself from the ISS over the next several hours. Then on Sunday, August 2nd, the Crew Dragon is scheduled to fire up its thrusters at around 1:56PM ET, taking the vehicle out of orbit. The capsule should touch down in the Atlantic Ocean off
14:50:00 <Eric> the coast of Florida about an hour later at around 2:42PM ET.
14:50:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Splashdown at 1442 EDT
14:50:15 <Eric> Hi Betty
14:51:00 <johnu> right now the webcam is dying...
14:51:01 <KorbenC> Splashdown on sunday?
14:51:10 <Eric> says dead
14:51:14 <Eric> recovering
14:51:18 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> My friend that lived at Pioneer was a bit shocked by your news story Betty.
14:51:40 <Betty> I can relate
14:51:40 <Eric> and recovered
14:51:43 <Eric> apparently
14:52:45 <Eric> Might have to stay up late tomorrow and watch the retrieval
14:53:04 <KorbenC> what time is touchdown tommorow?
14:53:05 <Eric> I assume it's landing the old fashioned way, parachute?
14:53:14 <Eric> read Coop
14:53:55 <JarnoO> chat didn't like me
14:54:37 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> This brings back some great memories. I remember Alan Shepard and John Glenn. Loved the Mercury Redstone. Cool looking rocket.
14:55:12 <johnu> :thumbsup:
14:56:19 <Eric> Just reading that the dragon capsule actually has propulsive thrusters if NASA included them in the mission!
14:56:39 <Eric> They are emergency only, but still pretty cool.
14:59:17 <Eric> Also the drone boats of spaceX are capable of catching the capsule!
14:59:25 <Eric> That would be pretty incredible
14:59:46 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:00:07 <Eric> Once the capsule hits sea water, it has to go through a lot more testing, refurb
15:00:41 <Eric> If they can keep it dry and safe, easier for recovery and faster turnaround times on capsule reuse.
15:08:34 <Eric> Interesting...there is a really wide array of spots for the capsule to land...could be atlantic or gulf costs
15:08:36 <Eric> coasts
15:09:03 <Eric> Most likely be a gulf coast landing due to storms in the atlantic this weekend
15:09:18 <Forestbewithyou> That is probably likely Eric
15:09:23 <KorbenC> I would be suprised if they chose Atlantic
15:09:27 <johnu> someday on dry ground
15:09:28 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> This Space X stuff is like a Ray Bradbury story.
15:09:44 <Eric> Yes it is Kevin
15:10:06 <Eric> Yes, someday...spaceX is ready and willing...I think NASA is the hurdle on the dry ground landing
15:10:34 <johnu> yeah water isn't good for computers!
15:10:37 <Eric> They have already proven they can land the thrusters upright.
15:10:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Salt water is terrible for about anything.
15:11:02 <Eric> how hard could it be for soft land landing with chutes and thursters?
15:11:41 <Eric> Put some of those shocks like on the struts of a 747 and boom...touchdown.
15:12:01 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:12:45 <Eric> I am surprised someone in the whitehouse didn't try to make them land in front of it :-P
15:12:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> It is mind boggling. I remember a picture my Grandma had titled "Troubles on the way to Zion". It was their wagon stuck in the mud at the crossing of the Virgin River.
15:13:04 <Eric> haha...yep Kevin
15:13:15 <johnu> :-/
15:13:28 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think that was taken 100 years ago.
15:13:34 <Eric> What a great photo op...have bob & doug land in the whitehouse lawn :-D
15:13:49 <Eric> unless it didn't work :-|
15:14:03 <Eric> castle
15:14:58 <JarnoO> previous Castle was probably a minor
15:15:10 <JarnoO> double minor actually
15:16:06 <JarnoO> Korben, I don't think you trying shifting Isaias eastwards helped anything. Forecast track now puts it right next to Florida east coast
15:16:11 <Eric> wow...those are some nice tall spikes!
15:16:48 <johnu> the webcam is moving at turtle speed... :-}
15:20:01 <KorbenC> NWS hasnt udated their warning but Kat is under Hurricane warning
15:20:02 <johnu> who does the updates on the geyser times?
15:20:39 <JarnoO> as in?
15:20:42 <KorbenC> Johnny, like the entrys?
15:21:09 <johnu> yes, the entries in blue in the middle right side of the page
15:21:29 <ynpvisitor30> jarno and korben do them all
15:21:34 <KorbenC> Jarno and I do alot of them, along with Linda, and Graham, and some others.
15:21:48 <KorbenC> I havent done any today because I am trying to throw things together for hiking tommorow
15:21:49 <JarnoO> not all of them, #30, but it does seem that way a lot
15:21:56 <Eric> Anyone can john, create an account on
15:22:11 <johnu> are there gazers in the basin that can update real time on their cells?
15:22:17 <Forestbewithyou> yes
15:22:34 <Eric> Yes, geysertimes is used throughout the park.
15:22:42 <johnu> rangers in the VC?
15:22:46 <Eric> That data is just pulled from database.
15:23:05 <Eric> Some rangers do enter times, but they are usually getting pulled aside to do 30 other tasks.
15:23:21 <Eric> A few enter when wondering around the basin.
15:23:27 <johnu> Thanks all! castle is doing a great show!
15:23:43 <Eric> One of them pulls logger data and updates electronic times sometimes.
15:23:54 <JarnoO> mhvogel and another one (not sure who...) being to most notable rangers
15:24:01 <JarnoO> Castle to steam, major
15:24:15 <KorbenC> Center of Isaias should be about 14 miles off Coast from Kat
15:24:22 <Eric> I think it's still in water jarno
15:24:34 <ynpvisitor30> Ranger John showed me the data on his phone, not at all what I thought it would be
15:24:34 <johnu> I am still seeing water!
15:24:41 <ynpvisitor9> johnu, point at the time of the entry, you can see who entered it
15:24:49 <Eric> did he show you the graph 30?
15:25:00 <ynpvisitor30> Eric, yeah, the spikes
15:25:27 <Eric> Yep, if you are in the basin a lot and know rebecca, she could possibly hook you up :-D
15:25:46 <johnu> Ah there you go. Now I know, thanks!
15:25:48 <ynpvisitor30> yeah, she hung with us at tilt's
15:26:03 <KorbenC> John showed me some of the data too, I enjoyed looking at the logger in BH's runoff channel, until I found out that that 4 day interval was closed :(
15:26:45 <Eric> Well, I wouldn't bug her about it unless you are planning on spending a lot of the summer in the basin.
15:26:55 <JarnoO> Korben, Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―
15:27:41 <KorbenC> He did get a nice picture of Beehive and I though :)
15:28:14 <Eric> Beehive and me
15:28:22 <Eric> :-D
15:28:29 <KorbenC> no, Beehive and I
15:28:34 <Eric> Nope
15:28:46 <Forestbewithyou> Eric the grammar police
15:28:51 <Eric> :-D
15:29:05 <Eric> You would never say get a nice picture of I
15:29:08 <KorbenC> unless my English Scholar, sorry teacher is wrong :)
15:29:09 <Forestbewithyou> Korben do you not remember Eric's tip from yesterday
15:29:58 <Eric> Oh, I have no doubt your teacher is correct, but I assume your listening abilities might not be on par :-P
15:30:11 <Forestbewithyou> Oh darn
15:30:29 <KorbenC> I have a comment, on a note from her about it, I can read
15:31:01 <KorbenC> so by saying my english teacher is correct, you are saying you are wrong :)
15:31:39 <KorbenC> and I have better listening that all of oyu older folk combined :P
15:32:39 <Eric> castle major
15:32:40 <JarnoO> I wouldn't be so certain of that, Korben...
15:32:43 <johnu> yeah but, oyu can't type or spell! ;)
15:32:57 <ynpvisitor32> johnu, lol
15:33:10 <KorbenC> johnu, blame Linda for that :)
15:33:18 <Eric> haha, and 4 times the hubris
15:33:20 <KorbenC> Speak of the devil ;)
15:33:35 <LindaG> See what you have done to john
15:33:37 <Forestbewithyou> ok I have to... Korben do you need some Neosporin for that burn
15:33:57 <Eric> John will fit in well here :-D
15:33:57 <johnu> Okay, I have to get back to work Linda's here!
15:34:07 <Eric> Bye John!
15:34:26 <Forestbewithyou> Bye John
15:34:30 <johnu> No, I am still here, just on the cam! :p
15:34:33 <LindaG> johnu, lol that was funny John, you fit right in with the group
15:35:07 <johnu> Okay question for you. How long is a castle major eruption normally?
15:35:29 <LindaG> 20 minutes of water
15:35:29 <JarnoO> usually 15 to 20 minutes water, then steam for, I recall, 40 minutes or so
15:35:42 <KorbenC> depends, the whole eruption from start ot end of steamphase can go on for quite a long time, upwards of about an hou
15:35:43 <KorbenC> r
15:35:54 <johnu> Nice! I have never seen a major.
15:36:08 <johnu> It is kicking butt!
15:36:21 <Betty> hi albee
15:36:26 <LindaG> johnu, they are real nice in evening, backlit
15:36:29 <JarnoO> afternoon Albee
15:36:36 <KorbenC> Hi albee
15:36:38 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
15:36:42 <LindaG> Hi albee
15:36:53 <johnu> Hey buddy!
15:36:57 <Betty> hey Korben
15:36:58 <albee> Howdy everyone, happy Friday
15:37:06 <Eric> Happy Friday
15:37:09 <KorbenC> its Friday?
15:37:16 <KorbenC> oh yeah, it is.
15:37:17 <JarnoO> it's Friday? I thought it was Saturday
15:37:20 <johnu> we just need daisy, grand and beehive...
15:37:21 <albee> Right
15:37:39 <LindaG> Beehive went this afternoon
15:37:43 <KorbenC> John, Beehive went earlier
15:37:50 <johnu> Drats Linda!
15:37:54 <Eric> Yep John, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of "The Geysers of Yellowstone" if you want to learn more about geyser behavior. Best book out there.
15:37:56 <LindaG> Sorry
15:38:06 <LindaG> Theres a video of it
15:38:11 <albee> And aurum
15:38:14 <ynpvisitor9> Daisy in 15-20 minutes
15:38:18 <johnu> Thanks Eric I will do that!
15:38:30 <JarnoO> must be because it's currently summer holidays and I woke up to hearing some children playing outside on the playgarden, which, during hot days, only tends to happen on Saturdays and Sundays
15:38:31 <Eric> ohh, we are in an aurum window
15:38:36 <LindaG> We havent seen an aurum, mugwump took our attention
15:38:44 <Eric> Do you know where aurum is at? :-D
15:38:46 <KorbenC> johnu,
15:38:51 <ynpvisitor30> I'd get the kindle edition of geysers of Y
15:38:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Aurum in 15m
15:39:10 <Eric> I like my paperback version for sitting on my desk personally
15:39:23 <Eric> You leaving in 15m kevin?
15:39:32 <KorbenC> Aurum and I are hillarious together :P
15:39:33 <JarnoO> I still need to get that paperback version. I only have it online at the moment
15:39:42 <KorbenC> how, now it sounds like I am in a relationship with a geyser
15:39:51 <KorbenC> JarnoO, :-/:-/:-/:-/:-/:-/
15:40:03 <Forestbewithyou> Oh brother Korben
15:40:42 <Eric> Pump!
15:41:47 <JarnoO> I do have the 4th edition as paperback, which I guess suffices to some extent
15:41:51 <KorbenC> where is the Grand crowd?
15:42:01 <Eric> Yep, it hasn't changed that much Jarno
15:42:17 <KorbenC> put a period at the end of that Eric,
15:42:22 <KorbenC> or else.
15:42:23 <KorbenC> :p
15:42:42 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, training?
15:43:06 <Eric> Hey, if you want to go around embarrassing yourself with what you type, who am I to stop you?
15:43:21 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> No, have to pick something up.
15:43:30 <LindaG> πŸ‘
15:43:36 <KorbenC> Eric, some Geyser weirdo :)
15:43:44 <LindaG> Oh a grand gathering
15:43:53 <ynpvisitor30> KorbenC, that is redundant
15:43:54 <Eric> Just like talking to kids about riding bikes with helmets...some listen, some don't.
15:44:23 <KorbenC> I dont even ride a bike, so I wouldnt know!
15:44:32 <Eric> Not surprised....
15:44:45 <JarnoO> Eric, you'd dislike it hear regarding biking with helmet on :P
15:44:45 <ynpvisitor30> hahaha
15:44:46 <KorbenC> why not?
15:44:49 <JarnoO> here*
15:44:58 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Helmet is cheap. Head isn't.
15:45:04 <Eric> yep
15:45:28 <Eric> I have known too many people who have received brain injuries from impacts.
15:46:10 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I had a friend turned into a vegetable because of that.
15:46:37 <KorbenC> Eric, I do other things, never got into biking, I like fishing, running, hiking (8+ miles, or above tree line), climbing (class 3+), walking (generally about 5 miles) and sometimes I like geysers (othertimes not so much) and not too much else
15:46:44 <ynpvisitor30> I've cracked a few helmets and walked away
15:47:26 <KorbenC> and believe me, I am plenty fit :) if you arent fit you cant just go "hey wanna go do 8 miles" "sure" "be back in about 2 hours" :p
15:47:38 <ynpvisitor9> and the person wearing the helmet :)
15:47:41 <Eric> that is a good use of a helmet then 30 :-D
15:48:29 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Takes me a couple of days for 8 miles.
15:48:35 <LindaG> Wow last grand was 8h 12 m
15:48:37 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Watch for Aurum.
15:48:52 <Eric> 6h32m Linda
15:49:07 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, saw on static this morning πŸ˜•
15:49:09 <Eric> the previous one had 8h12m interval
15:49:29 <Eric> ohh, or I just read what you said wrong :-P
15:49:29 <KorbenC> Eric, thats what she meant I think :)
15:49:34 <ynpvisitor9> cam must swing to and fro
15:49:52 <LindaG> Eric, that's what I meant
15:50:00 <Eric> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
15:50:13 <LindaG> *to and fro is a dead giveaway
15:50:23 <ynpvisitor9> :)
15:50:50 <LindaG> πŸ™‚
15:50:53 <Eric> nice oblong steam
15:51:54 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham

15:53:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> always a $ somewhere
15:53:20 <ynpvisitor9> 5 O'clock
15:53:37 <CraigC> it's like a reunion of the fun chat group now
15:53:41 <CraigC> where is Dave
15:53:45 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Craig
15:53:47 <JarnoO> afternoon Craig
15:53:51 <CraigC> hey Forest
15:53:54 <CraigC> hey Jarno
15:54:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> we got rid of all the rude gazers Craig :)
15:54:09 <ynpvisitor9> Hi CraigC
15:54:09 <CraigC> hahaha
15:54:13 <CraigC> hey 9
15:54:17 <Eric> grand
15:54:18 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
15:54:22 <CraigC> hey Linda
15:54:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> white stuff
15:54:35 <CraigC> I notice there was no comma between rude gazers and Craig
15:54:48 <Eric> Fine Craig...come out of hidden snarky # to say hi to graham...I see how you roll!
15:54:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dave has been banned
15:55:06 <CraigC> Eric, I gave you more than enough hints
15:55:08 <Betty> hey Graham and CraigC
15:55:08 <LindaG> Grand
15:55:15 <CraigC> hey Betty
15:55:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, we was ready for some insults
15:55:23 <Eric> Oh, I knew who you where!
15:55:23 <LindaG> But I guess you knew that
15:55:32 <LindaG> Betty, hi
15:55:43 <Eric> I don't even need the hints
15:55:48 <CraigC> ;)
15:56:02 <Betty> hey LindaG
15:56:13 <Eric> Dave has been super busy at least that is his excuse
15:56:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats good for him, glad business is keeping him busy
15:56:50 <CraigC> I think he has been short on staff, too
15:57:06 <CraigC> but mostly, I have been gone to YNP
15:57:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> they opened an REI store for him to give his money away
15:57:17 <CraigC> so why come if I am not in here
15:57:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats true Craig, maybe Dave will show up now he can meet you
15:57:54 <CraigC> :)
15:58:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> should only be about a week before you go back tho, right?
15:58:26 <CraigC> and I think he is bitter that my gf saw more SBs than he has
15:58:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> for SB 111
15:58:36 <LindaG> CraigC, lol
15:58:42 <Betty> I miss you all this year :-(
15:58:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> hasnt everyone seen more SB eruptions than Dave?
15:59:07 <CraigC> eruptions seemed too easy to catch this year compared to last
15:59:17 <ynpvisitor9> everyone but me :(
15:59:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry you cant come this year Betty, maybe next year?
15:59:28 <LindaG> And me
15:59:43 <Betty> hopefully!!!!!!!!
16:00:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> this is a very good string of intervals, i guess tenext one should eb shorter to continue its pattern
16:00:23 <KorbenC> how many has Dave seen?
16:00:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> 1
16:00:46 <KorbenC> Then yes, I have seen more than him :)
16:01:07 <KorbenC> but credit to Dave, 1 SB is more than most of us ever though we would see :)
16:01:26 <Betty> I have 1 1/2....
16:01:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah and he still needs Michelle and Becca to see it
16:01:36 <Forestbewithyou> I have 1
16:01:37 <ynpvisitor9> that one took him 168 hours in Norris prison
16:02:00 <LindaG> ynpvisitor9, yikes
16:02:14 <ynpvisitor9> him=Dave
16:03:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like most summer gazers cancelled their trips, doesnt sem like many gazers in the park now
16:03:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> very few in-basin posts anyway
16:03:59 <KorbenC> I am still astonished that I made it when I did, I still have to credit GS for that one though :)
16:04:16 <CraigC> twice this year I have met people at SB platform that stated they were going to stay until it erupted, if it meant staying overnight. Both times, they were gone the next morning, and missed the eruptions
16:04:23 <KorbenC> Hi Joe, :D
16:04:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> Karl Hoppeis going next week, he hasnt seen SB yet ...
16:04:25 <johnu> albee is on the cam! Thanks for all the help and info. Sorry about the crap talk this morning! :p
16:04:37 <CraigC> hey Joe!!!!!

16:06:25 <Joe> CraigC, did you get an e-mail from me today?
16:06:34 <johnu> Thanks Graham!
16:06:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> I am usually easy to identify here
16:07:03 <CraigC> Joe, yes, saw it just a bit ago, thanks. I wqas actually on here, as a number, and saw your video then
16:07:17 <Joe> :)
16:07:28 <kc (working)> he will be LETS GO CAPS on tuesday I presume
16:07:36 <Betty> yes, Graham is easy to identify with his bears :-)
16:07:43 <KorbenC> Joe, whyd you change your name? I enjoyed guessing how many Joes there were on at the same time :P
16:07:52 <kc (working)> make that monday
16:07:56 <Eric> Well, you don't know Craig well enough yet john, so you might want to reserver that "you all are great!" for a little later.
16:07:57 <Betty> his beard, lol
16:08:08 <KorbenC> Eric, hahahaha
16:08:32 <KorbenC> tahts alot of Joes
16:08:40 <Joe> There are still many Joes here, Korben

16:09:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, LETS G CAPS
16:09:18 <Betty> you can never have enough JoeΒ΄s
16:09:34 <Eric> My niece just got her first professional board game artwork released in a game!
16:09:38 <CraigC> Eric is very wise
16:09:46 <KorbenC> GS, should I be "GO LIGHNTINGS" :P
16:10:02 <johnu> guilty until proven innocent is what you are saying?
16:10:07 <Joe> MG used Graham as proof of Sasquatch in Yellowstone
16:10:16 <Eric> usually ass is attached to the end of that statement Craig
16:10:31 <Eric> Release the Kraken!
16:10:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> either tha Joe or I am pissed that I just missed a close-up chance for a photo
16:10:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> taking a selfie just didt seem right
16:10:59 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Knights picked up where they left off.
16:12:08 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> No Aurum?
16:12:17 <Eric> ohh, guess the Kraken don't get to compete until next year :-(
16:12:27 <johnu> someone has to get up there and clean the glass!
16:12:28 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, check out mug recordings for 12:50 and 13:10
16:12:34 <KorbenC> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, not until you find the rouge roster
16:12:51 <Eric> Yes, the 1250 mug is incredible
16:13:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok Linda
16:14:30 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> 119Β° when I got home.
16:14:33 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, dont think they looked
16:14:41 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, wow
16:15:44 <johnu> It is only 111 degrees here in Mesquite...
16:16:13 <LindaG> Too toasty for me
16:16:19 <albee> 116 in Buckeye and climbing. 120 yesterday ouch!
16:16:39 <johnu> Whoa that is HOT!
16:16:40 <LindaG> Too much
16:16:49 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I know it was brutal there yesterday. My kid got stuck in the jam for the wreck on top of Mormon Mesa.
16:17:24 <johnu> That sucks!
16:17:57 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> He sent me a picture of his thermometer at 124Β°
16:18:08 <albee> YIKES!
16:18:15 <Betty> we had 99 today
16:18:15 <Eric> dang, that could be deadly in your car at 124 degrees!
16:18:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Wow. This is scorching for you Betty.
16:18:52 <LindaG> Last week we had 98, starting to cool
16:19:17 <Betty> yep. At least a had a little feeling of beeing in LV
16:19:25 <Eric> we went over 100 on Sunday
16:19:28 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> That was the outside temp Eric. Stopped you have to turn off AC and turn heat on to keep from overheating.
16:19:47 <Eric> Yikes...that is definitely deadly
16:19:47 <Betty> we are a hot group :-)
16:19:56 <LindaG> Betty, πŸ˜„
16:20:05 <Eric> I am surprised more people don't die down there from heat stroke.
16:20:26 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Getting the Zion house fixed up now Betty. Kid is there working on the plumbing today.
16:20:40 <Betty> nice
16:20:56 <LindaG> Party at Zion πŸ™‚
16:21:43 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> We always carry LOTS of water and ice with us. I usually have 2 to 3 gallons in the car. Some for us and if there is a problem most people don't carry it so we take extra just in case.
16:21:47 <johnu> :thumbsup:
16:22:16 <Eric> smart...I usually have a gallon of water in our car too. I chug a lot of water on my returning from hikes.
16:22:32 <Eric> even in the winter :-D
16:22:48 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> On that Laughlin job I went through about 5 gallons a day.
16:23:26 <johnu> Gets a tad warm in Laughlin too!
16:23:30 <CraigC> these water containers are awesome for the car;
16:23:50 <CraigC> also have a 4 pack of 2.5 gallon one
16:23:52 <CraigC> ones
16:24:10 <johnu> do you freeze them?
16:24:25 <CraigC> I havent tried
16:26:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice mug eruption videos, good durations. now it needs to get taller
16:27:16 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
16:27:23 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Betty
16:27:25 <LindaG> Betty, night
16:27:28 <albee> Night Betty
16:27:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> night Betty
16:27:32 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Knight Betty
16:27:58 <KorbenC> Jarno, I can grab OF's again starting whenever I get back tommorow, but I will probably be fishing again on Sunday, so you will need to grab those
16:28:02 <KorbenC> Bye Betty
16:28:22 <Eric> Nice Craig, I just reuse square orange juice containers. Nice and thick and stack well.
16:28:49 <JarnoO> night Betty
16:29:07 <KorbenC> Craig, do you remember what kind Willaim has, I really liked those but I forgot to get the name of them.
16:29:21 <CraigC> sawyer
16:29:31 <CraigC> for the filters
16:29:53 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have a Yeti cooler that works great
16:29:59 <KorbenC> CraigC, :thumbsup:
16:30:16 <KorbenC> Kevin, we bring a Yeti and an Igloo, but we eat alot :P
16:30:53 <LindaG> Yeti is pricey, its it with it?
16:30:56 <KorbenC> we did learn from last year to bring a Coleman Grill thing to cook next to Hams hole
16:31:00 <LindaG> *worth
16:31:11 <KorbenC> Linda, my dad got it as a present from work, but they work spectacularly
16:31:36 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> They are awesome.
16:31:43 <KorbenC> we can put a few iced water bottles and an icepack, along with our food, and the water bottles will still be 90% frozen after 2 weeks
16:32:03 <LindaG> I always look at the smaller one but that's expensive too
16:32:19 <LindaG> KorbenC, wow
16:32:33 <KorbenC> here is the one we have,¤cy=USD&CAGPSPN=pla&CAAGID=87113599848&CATCI=pla-476972452685&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=__iv_p_1_g_87113599848_c_393437973081_w_pla-476972452685_n_g_d_c_v__l__t__r__x_pla_y_7597392_f_online_o_10035010000_z_US_i_en_j_476972452685_s__e__h_1014471_ii__vi__&gclid=Cj0KC
16:32:45 <KorbenC> we wouldnt have bought it, but luckly we got it for free :P
16:32:50 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> We also put cheese in in when we come back from the park at Logan. Also some frozen Pepperidge Farms frozen stuff from their outlet store.
16:33:11 <KorbenC> but I would highly recommend it!
16:34:11 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think ours is the 45
16:34:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> 6 stars out of 5.
16:35:51 <LindaG> KorbenC, nice
16:36:28 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, that's great I'll have to consider smaller one
16:37:09 <KorbenC> :lion:
16:37:32 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Ini
16:37:56 <KorbenC> I love initials, all though I always havr trouble determining when to call them on the radio :P
16:38:29 <CraigC> Linda, check out the Lifetime coolers that are wannabe Yetis, not as great, but 1/3rd the cost
16:38:39 <JarnoO> it takes some effort, but eventually you'll simply "feel" when it starts, Korben
16:38:49 <JarnoO> Dep
16:38:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think Cabelas has a great one
16:38:56 <KorbenC> wohhho
16:39:05 <KorbenC> can we zoom out a tad?
16:39:11 <KorbenC> or just pan right and down
16:40:03 <Eric> Hey John, if you are driving feel free to ignore people here commenting about what you should do.
16:40:05 <Eric> depression!
16:40:30 <KorbenC> Eric, lol, yes, you dont need to listen to us :P We just make suggestions ;)
16:40:37 <CraigC> I think Depression got inspired by Mugwump
16:40:39 <albee> Unless is it is OF
16:41:24 <KorbenC> but if Giantess is jsut starting, I think taht would be fair excuse to miss OF
16:41:41 <LindaG> Oh nice
16:41:55 <Eric> I just meant ignore Cooper most of the time :-D
16:42:05 <albee> :)
16:42:07 <JarnoO> I think you can have both OF and Giantess in frame? Not that you would when Giantess is ie :P
16:42:08 <Eric> sorry if I wasn't clear
16:42:16 <KorbenC> Ignoring me spares you brain cells :P
16:42:22 <LindaG> Well seems to be rain ing at mammoth hot springs
16:42:37 <Eric> wow...strong storm
16:42:52 <Eric> West is clear
16:42:59 <KorbenC> I am very talktaive on here, but people will attest I am very calm in person :)
16:43:09 <Eric> I won't
16:43:15 <johnu> albee is driving the cam. I am just ignoring all of you! ;)
16:43:20 <JarnoO> haha
16:43:22 <Eric> good call
16:43:29 <Forestbewithyou> Smart
16:43:40 <KorbenC> Eric, you have never mett me in person :P I think I only talked like 10 times on that SB wait :p
16:44:01 <JarnoO> well, that's the suspense you're succumbing to, Korben
16:44:01 <KorbenC> at least I dont speak as bad as I type!
16:44:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> johnu is regretting his prevo=ious comment about people being nice here
16:44:33 <johnu> $ 250 for a cooler? It better cook and do dishes for that price! :lol:
16:44:53 <LindaG> CraigC, πŸ‘
16:44:55 <albee> You don't marry it JohnU
16:45:01 <Eric> Yes, the Yeti's are not cheap, but they do keep stuff cold for a long time.
16:45:35 <LindaG> johnu, Indeed
16:46:30 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> As Jimmy Dean said about his sausage: "Better to apologize for the price and not the quality."
16:46:50 <CraigC> TMI
16:46:51 <LindaG> I can see if you are traveling to someplace like YNP for an extended period of time and you can throw it I to the car
16:46:51 <KorbenC> Jimmy Dean?
16:47:00 <johnu> Yeah, but how many times was he married?
16:47:45 <johnu> Jimmy Dean could afford it and then some!
16:48:05 <LindaG> KorbenC, as I Jimmy dean sausages
16:48:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Singer and primo sausage maker.
16:48:24 <Eric> Yes, I think we are talking sausage, not james dean
16:48:44 <LindaG> 😁 I'm not sure what we are talking lol
16:48:48 <KorbenC> ah!
16:49:03 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Going back to earlier discussion.... Big John....
16:49:07 <Eric> ohh, didn't realize james dean actually founded it
16:49:17 <johnu> LOL! Pass the TP please! :p
16:49:23 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Jimmy Dean
16:49:28 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1754Β±5m if series continues. 6m44s
16:49:55 <Eric>
16:51:10 <LindaG> How did we go from yeti to big bad John? Lol
16:51:26 <johnu> way way before our time Eric!
16:51:39 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Only on this page Linda
16:51:40 <Eric> well, not all of us John :-D
16:51:46 <LindaG> Indeed
16:51:55 <Eric> LC
16:52:07 <johnu> LOL! True!
16:52:21 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, I'm sitting here laughing
16:53:15 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think it is called cabin fever.
16:53:20 <johnu> I was a little weinersnitchel when he sang that song!
16:53:39 <JarnoO> wienerschnitzel :)
16:53:41 <albee> Did you use spell check for that?
16:54:21 <LindaG> albee, lol
16:54:54 <LindaG> By the way Jimmy dean sausage has a lot of msg
16:54:57 <johnu> LOL! Google did that to me! wienerschnitzel
16:55:06 <JarnoO> haha
16:55:12 <albee> haha
16:55:14 <JarnoO> dem big evil corp :P
16:55:29 <johnu> Oh Linda! Next you're going to tell me bacon isn't good for you!
16:55:45 <JarnoO> I love the smell of the air right after thunder and rain
16:56:02 <LindaG> johnu, πŸ˜„ oh no bacon is good
16:56:19 <albee> bacon is evil
16:56:23 <albee> lol
16:56:38 <LindaG> Ever have chocolate covered bacon?
16:57:00 <JarnoO> what's that for weird combination?
16:57:03 <johnu> I always knew that was something off with you greg!
16:57:06 <KorbenC> Linda, yum
16:57:07 <albee> never thought of it, why ruin chocolate
16:57:34 <LindaG> I havent supposed to be good if arteries survive
16:57:46 <JarnoO> you'd be ruining the taste of both the chocolate and the bacon... You Americans...
16:57:55 <johnu> Sounds yummy to me Linda!
16:57:55 <LindaG> JarnoO, lol
16:57:58 <KorbenC> Bacon- Best thing, Chocolate- Second best thing, Chocolate Bacon=yum :P
16:58:05 <KorbenC> Jarno, yup!
16:58:39 <albee> Can I smoke it on my pitboss?
16:58:44 <LindaG> I'm getting hungry
16:58:51 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Is that like spaghetti ice cream?
17:00:07 <LindaG> albee, the chocolate might run a little πŸ˜‹
17:00:13 <johnu> I better go start cooking. I have to go get lottery tickets so I can buy a yeti!
17:00:40 <johnu> You all have fun and play nice!
17:00:43 <albee> Johnu, did you buy a pitboss grill yet?
17:01:00 <LindaG> johnu, enjoy
17:01:11 <KorbenC> johnu, bye
17:01:13 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Good Knight
17:01:19 <Eric> Night John
17:01:25 <JarnoO> cya John
17:01:34 <Eric> I will be firing up the grill in about an hour :-D
17:01:44 <albee> Talk with you later my friend. Johnu
17:02:14 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have a Papa Murphy's pizza ready for the oven.
17:02:27 <albee> Yummy
17:02:28 <KorbenC> and I already had dinner :)
17:02:35 <Eric> No ovens for us :-D We don't have 5 cooling systems in our house :-P
17:02:42 <albee> 4 hours yet for me
17:02:44 <johnu> Night all! I need the lotto for that too greg! Chat at you later!
17:02:56 <albee> :thumbsup:
17:02:58 <LindaG> Ever try to go back and read one of these chatlogs. They make no sense😁
17:03:09 <Eric> Papa Murphys is based out of my home town :-D
17:03:11 <KorbenC> LindaG, ;)
17:03:15 <ynpvisitor67> Yes, and true
17:03:20 <Eric> They do testing all the time here Kevin
17:03:20 <Forestbewithyou> oh don't read this morning....
17:03:28 <JarnoO> that's why I rarely read them back, Linda
17:03:53 <johnu> LOL Linda got that right!
17:04:01 <JarnoO> like, you need to read pretty much all the way from the beginning to get some kind of context and even then it's vague :D
17:04:23 <LindaG> Its true lol
17:04:48 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I like Papa Murphy's. Always hot. I think mine is already half cooked from the ride home.
17:05:25 <albee> When it is not so hot out, we smoke our pizza in the pitboss grill, yummy
17:06:06 <LindaG> Sounds yummy
17:06:19 <albee> made from scratch
17:07:25 <ynpvisitor91> Just don’t step on a crack Cooper!
17:07:41 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I do scratch pizza too but was too busy today.
17:07:56 <LindaG> Step on a crack break your mother's back
17:08:02 <ynpvisitor91> I never scratch my pizza
17:08:21 <ynpvisitor91> Exactly Linda. Cooper is too young
17:08:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I have a bunch of ribs that need smoked. At least the smoker is outside.
17:08:35 <LindaG> ynpvisitor91, sounds weird now
17:08:42 <albee> ;)
17:09:55 <ynpvisitor91> Have a great weekend everyone! It’s five o clock!
17:10:06 <JarnoO> cya #91
17:10:08 <LindaG> ynpvisitor91, bye
17:10:12 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Bye
17:10:14 <albee> cya91
17:12:19 <Eric> I have taken to rotisserie my ribs!
17:12:22 <Eric> Night 91
17:13:11 <ynpvisitor91> Night? I’m just getting started:)
17:14:10 <JarnoO> oh, you're one of those :P
17:14:35 <Eric> ahh, good call!
17:14:59 <Eric> I wish gout didn't cause me such issues or I would so crack open a beer here too :-D
17:15:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Only reason I stay up past 8 is Hogan's Heros comes on at 10.
17:16:06 <LindaG> 😁
17:26:01 <LindaG> My birding friends are getting ready for rarities as a result of the impending hurricane
17:27:04 <LindaG> Sort of like how you guys are looking for new happenings after a disturbance
17:28:10 <JarnoO> we've got more in common than we might think at first glance :)
17:28:44 <LindaG> JarnoO, πŸ™‚ its true
17:29:31 <Eric> you get different birds during or after a hurricane?
17:30:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
17:30:23 <LindaG> LindaG, yes birds get blown off course or forced closer to land, mostly pelagic birds
17:30:37 <LindaG> That was for eric
17:31:56 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> We are hoping my Uncles pictures and notes are in the house Linda
17:33:17 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, oh that's right he was a renowned birder
17:33:28 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, that would be great
17:34:07 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> If there are pictures I will scan them and get you a copy
17:34:44 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, oh thank you. You could publish something like that
17:35:03 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, was it mostly within zion?
17:35:33 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> The general area.
17:35:44 <LindaG> πŸ‘
17:36:04 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I think he was one of the first group of Rangers for Zion.
17:36:30 <JarnoO> Giantess boil
17:36:46 <LindaG> Zion? Would love something g like that
17:37:02 <LindaG> *Zion would
17:38:18 <albee> :daisy:
17:38:21 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> I know the Audubon people were excited about my Aunt's observations in Springdale.
17:39:26 <LindaG> Definitely any historical record for them to study
17:41:25 <Eric> I bet there is a lot of history there Kevin
17:41:48 <Eric> Are you guys selling the house or renting it out?
17:46:30 <JarnoO> 81Β°F and a very steamy pool. Sure hope I didn't go insane
17:47:34 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Right now we will be renting and then will figure things as we move on.
17:48:20 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Property has been in the family since God invented dirt so we would like to keep something.
17:51:54 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡, that's great
18:06:33 <KorbenC> I am going to get ready to leave at 2AM tommorow :)
18:10:40 <JarnoO> Lion?
18:11:30 <JarnoO> might've missed a minor inbetween
18:12:01 <albee> :thumbsup:
18:19:06 <JarnoO> was that Middle Sister?
18:19:46 <JarnoO> doesn't look like it. Darn white spot covered occasionally with steam...
18:54:30 <LindaG> KorbenC, have fun
18:59:42 <Forestbewithyou> Well I think I am going to hop off
18:59:46 <Forestbewithyou> Good night all
19:00:06 <albee> Nite Forest
19:00:26 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Good Knight
19:00:43 <JarnoO> cya Forest
19:06:53 <LynnS> Hello Jarno and Eric. You had questions about the Great Fountain research and model i developed in 2002. No, I never wrote up a full fledged Sput or Transactions article.
19:07:17 <JarnoO> evening Lynn
19:07:40 <Kevin Lβ„’ 🌡> Hi Lynn
19:08:07 <JarnoO> thanks. Would love to have a read on that model though :)
19:09:09 <LynnS> And Jarno, there is plenty of research that could be done to try to build a more precise mathematical model. Would require developing a wuantitative scale, etc. my philosophyβ€”build a simple model as a first pass to see if a relationship exists. Then refine it if the simple model works.
19:10:32 <LynnS> But that requires intense concentration and doesn’t allow for enjoyment of the eruption. Anyone who wants to put in time, develop, scales and definitions, etc is more than welcome to pursue further research.
19:10:43 <JarnoO> makes sense. Would be a wasted effort to try making a detailed model if, after all, not a relationship exists
19:11:59 <JarnoO> though on the other hand, you'd prove that there's no relationship - the other side of the medal
19:14:06 <LynnS> A simplified version of the model was published in the August 2002 issue of The Sputβ€”three series, midpoint 10 hours, four series, 11hours, 5 series, 13 hours; 6 series 14 hours, and 7 series 15 hours.
19:15:38 <LynnS> For my model to be useful though, one has to use my definition of the end of the eruption, which is the end of the last series that forcibly throws water into the air and that water lands outside the crater rim.
19:16:47 <JarnoO> speaking of rims - some north rim boils on Giantess. Didn't appear to be higher than a foot
19:17:07 <JarnoO> thanks Lynn. Will write that down
19:18:35 <LynnS> After that last series, Great Fountain May pause for 10 or more minutes, then start having bursts up to 2 meters high above the rim that come from the east side of the crater, throw water straight up but the water falls right back down into the crater. The regression model showed those bursts did not expend energy to extend the interval, so they are not considered a series when applying the serie
19:19:14 <LynnS> Most of it is in the Sput article for the August issue.
19:20:15 <LynnS> Hi and bye everyone.
19:23:52 <ynpvisitor72> Hi, bye
19:23:59 <ynpvisitor72> Thank you for the info
