05:42:07 <KorbenC> Hi R
05:46:49 <Ryan(-9)> morningf
05:53:10 <ynpvisitor27> Merry Christmas!!
05:53:25 <KorbenC> Same too you!
05:56:32 <Ryan(-9)> not a bad background for SWARM
05:57:07 <KorbenC> nice pic
05:57:29 <ynpvisitor60> spider ie
05:57:58 <ynpvisitor60> hope william made it to arty
05:58:49 <ynpvisitor60> cooper, is YNP gonna get some rain today?
05:59:32 <KorbenC> there are going to be isolated tsms today yes
05:59:48 <ynpvisitor60> :thumbsup:
06:00:11 <KorbenC> will OF get hit with a good storm today?, maybe :) but there is a influx of tsms over the next 3 days which should help the first and knock down that smoke
06:00:27 <KorbenC> help the fire, not first
06:00:35 <Ryan(-9)(mine)> enjoy SB
06:09:16 <ynpvisitor60> lion
06:09:27 <ynpvisitor60> hey Joe
06:09:38 <KorbenC> Hi Craig
06:09:45 <ynpvisitor60> hey Cooper
06:10:05 <ynpvisitor60> maybe turban
06:14:46 <ynpvisitor27> And again, MERRY CHRISTMAS :)
06:27:03 <lori lurking Je> Merry Christmas all! I just saw that 4 FCFS campgrounds are opening at 8 a.m. today, but it isn't on the park website yet?
06:32:12 <KorbenC> Hi lljm
06:32:40 <KorbenC> how goes it?
06:33:49 <KorbenC> :daisy:
06:35:47 <JarnoO🎄> morning all
06:35:47 <KorbenC> Grand
06:35:53 <KorbenC> Hi Jarno, merry chirstmas!
06:36:16 <KorbenC🎅> no Grand, just turban
06:36:18 <KorbenC🎅> uhoh
06:36:23 <JarnoO🎄> oh dear
06:36:28 <KorbenC🎅> NOOO
06:36:36 <KorbenC> phew
06:37:08 <KorbenC🤶> no idea why it didnt like the other one :)
06:37:35 <KorbenC🎅> :)
06:37:51 <JarnoO🎄> could be that it's some unicode code point sequence that triggers chat to do that
06:37:57 <lori lurking Je> sorry, distracted, going good Korben. How is virtual school so far?
06:38:11 <KorbenC🎅> lori lurking Jenna's mom, just started yesterday, so far so good
06:38:30 <KorbenC🎅> Jarno, can you explain why in my room if I have the door open the internet goes faster than if its closed?
06:38:47 <KorbenC🎅> its not the same way in my bedroom downstairs which is interesting
06:39:01 <JarnoO🎄> do you use wireless internet?
06:39:11 <KorbenC🎅> yes
06:39:22 <KorbenC🎅> weve got an Asus router upstairs
06:39:31 <ynpvisitor60> takes longer if it has to knock before entering
06:39:42 <KorbenC🎅> FYI, Laura now forecast to make landfall as a mjor hurricane
06:40:19 <KorbenC🎅> storm surge is predicted from 7-11ft (wow)
06:40:55 <JarnoO🎄> well, there's your answer. The door blocks some of the signal, causing it to weaken. This means the router has to send the same data more frequently in order for a full data transmission, slowing your internet down
06:41:11 <JarnoO🎄> I believe that's a very, very rough explanation
06:41:21 <JarnoO🎄> (and don't quote me on it)
06:41:35 <KorbenC🎅> with the worst stuff predicted between Lake Charles and La fayette
06:41:38 <KorbenC🎅> Thx Jarno :)
06:42:36 <ynpvisitor63> Where’s SB Korben?
06:43:05 <KorbenC🎅> Norris Geyser Basin YNP ;)
06:43:20 <KorbenC🎅> my prediction was 8/25/2020 4:49:48 +/24 hours :D
06:43:22 <JarnoO🎄> it's also why I prefer to use wired when possible, as you don't have those problems. For example, my computer has the ability for a wireless internet connection, but I have connected it to wired anyway since it's more stable in my experience and no risk of random signal drop-outs. Also no password hassle :)
06:43:56 <KorbenC🎅> Jarno, my dad and brother said they were going to get me wired up at some point in the next week or so
06:44:08 <KorbenC🎅> Shower and breakfast time.
06:44:51 <ynpvisitor63> Is that supposed to be Santa? Did he eat too much curry?
06:54:23 <Kat> Good morning!
06:54:26 <JarnoO🎄> morning Kat
06:54:34 <Kat> Hi
06:55:06 <ynpvisitor60> hey Kat
06:55:21 <Kat> ynpvisitor60, Morning!
06:55:33 <Kat> Joe I assume :)
06:55:53 <ynpvisitor60> nope, C
06:56:05 <Kat> Aahh! Hi
06:56:10 <ynpvisitor60> :) hey
06:56:32 <Kat> Hiding this morning LOL
06:56:55 <ynpvisitor60> trying to not have regrets of not leaving for YNP last night.... if Sb waits til this afternoon, I will be bummed I didnt go
06:57:06 <Kat> Bulger
06:57:38 <Kat> Yes, you will. Looks like smoke has improved!
06:58:14 <JarnoO🎄> morning Craig
06:58:15 <CraigC> we had rain here overnight, so hopefully it is a lot clearer today
06:58:18 <CraigC> hey Jarno
07:02:55 <ynpvisitor105> Last week of warm weather in the region
07:05:19 <KorbenC🎅> Lindas gonna be seeing some winds (possible Drecho formation too)
07:06:31 <ynpvisitor51> Mid 70s for Labor Day is pretty warm in YNP
07:06:53 <ynpvisitor51> Just a little dip before then
07:09:05 <JarnoO🎄> looks like that Dwarf of yesterday is trying something
07:09:42 <KorbenC🎅> Laura is now a hurricane JO
07:10:01 <JarnoO🎄> unsurprising - it's been forecast to do that for a while now :)
07:10:12 <KorbenC🎅> yup :)
07:10:43 <JarnoO🎄> also a 10kt increase from the last advisory
07:11:13 <KorbenC🎅> NOAA push say Cat 4 landfall is possible if that 2nd low pressure system doesnt sperate (rapid intensification right now is being fed by warm water and lots of CAPE is a seperate non-cyclonic system)
07:12:00 <JarnoO🎄> Dwarf
07:12:04 <JarnoO🎄> big one
07:12:10 <KorbenC🎅> wow
07:12:20 <KorbenC🎅> zoom in on Dep?
07:13:15 <JarnoO🎄> well, I guess that was the big action of the Dwarfs for today
07:13:54 <KorbenC🎅> bah, put the time thing in the wrong place :p
07:14:59 <JarnoO🎄> is there a map around which shows the different vents of the Dwarfs?
07:20:09 <JarnoO🎄> someone made an oopsie when they published the overnight captures on the GOSA channel. Three videos with the same title and presumably content
07:27:33 <CraigC> roar
07:27:48 <CraigC> water
07:28:03 <Kat> lion
07:28:10 <CraigC> mimicking an initial
07:29:01 <JarnoO🎄> minor so far
07:29:30 <JarnoO🎄> restart
07:30:14 <ynpvisitor74> Shouldn’t the biggest hurricane this year be called Karen?
07:31:21 <Kat> LOL
07:31:44 <JarnoO🎄> Lion's gotten excited since the restart
07:31:56 <JarnoO🎄> and done
07:32:06 <ynpvisitor74> Kay, how many times have you evacuated?
07:32:17 <ynpvisitor74> Kat*
07:33:19 <KorbenC🎅> Time to shut down SWARM for school, you still got it up JO?
07:33:23 <CraigC> bulger
07:33:34 <JarnoO🎄> I do, Korben
07:34:06 <KorbenC🎅> too bad I cant get it on my tablet :)
07:38:09 <JarnoO🎄> Next Lion @ 0834±5m if series continues. 1m16s+2m28s=3m44s
07:41:29 <Kat> ynpvisitor74, twice and both times I could have probably stayed home!
07:42:34 <ynpvisitor73> Always best to be safe. Was it easier packing the second time?
07:43:03 <CraigC> bulger
07:44:22 <Kat> Yes - I keep a container on my porch, and easy access to cooler. I have all my important papers in one place! It can be exhausting but fairly easy. I use a checklist too!
07:45:20 <Kat> I actually leave some non-perishables in the container and get what I need early!
07:45:47 <Kat> I really don't like hurricane season! Always worry about my home.
07:45:58 <CraigC> :(
07:47:08 <Kat> Not sure I'm going to stay in Florida long. My son is begging me to move closer to him :) But what a hassle! Whenever you say it's the last time - it's not!
07:47:15 <ynpvisitor73> Does insurance cover hurricane damage? I bet your insurance is high if it does.
07:47:33 <Kat> I miss the seasons and snow and family!
07:47:41 <ynpvisitor73> Where does your son live?
07:47:46 <Kat> all but flooding!
07:48:55 <Kat> He lives in Delaware. He's attending Univ of Delaware Biden School of Public Policy - getting his PhD. Soon to get married!
07:49:09 <CraigC> hey Eric
07:49:15 <Kat> Hi Eric
07:49:18 <SantaFe108> hello eric
07:49:24 <JarnoO🎄> These are pictures of the eighth-largest city in the Netherlands (just over 200 000 inhabitants). First one was taken in 1967, the second in 1968 and the third in 2020: 1: 2: 3:
07:49:33 <JarnoO🎄> morning Eric
07:50:05 <Eric> Morning Craig, Kat, SantaFe & Jarno
07:50:21 <CraigC> JarnoO🎄, that's really cool change
07:54:29 <ynpvisitor91> What city?
07:54:37 <JarnoO🎄> Almere
07:56:35 <Eric> Any word on the lone star fire?
08:00:03 <ynpvisitor91> 764 acres
08:01:59 <ynpvisitor91> no reports yet this am that i can find
08:03:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Merry Christmas
08:03:30 <JarnoO🎄> morning Kevin. Merry Christmas to you too
08:03:42 <SantaFe108> hello kevin'
08:04:12 <Eric> Ho, Ho, Ho
08:04:28 <Eric> Maybe a Steamboat present?
08:04:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That would be nice.
08:05:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Giantess would be better.
08:09:03 <ynpvisitor91> Giantess would not be nicer for folks sitting at Norris hoping for their first SB
08:09:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Oh, that would be bad.
08:10:02 <ynpvisitor91> like coal in the stocking
08:10:25 <Eric> 91, where are you seeing 764 acres? I am looking at Northern Rockies who is in command and they are still only reporting 664
08:10:29 <JarnoO🎄> for those wondering - the thick line on YNR is [u]not[/u] Steamboat. Seems to be some kind of mechanical, constant noise
08:11:04 <ynpvisitor91> NIFA
08:11:05 <Eric> Thanks Jarno, I don't look at YNR much when YNM is up
08:12:42 <ynpvisitor91> info is from yesterday
08:13:21 <Eric> Thanks...of course the satellite tells all :-P
08:13:38 <Eric> Says it was updated today
08:14:15 <Eric> But who knows what timezone that 8/25 is
08:15:11 <Kat> Finally OF
08:15:12 <ynpvisitor91> link?
08:19:44 <Eric> Here is a map directly to the fire:
08:19:59 <CraigC> depression?
08:20:10 <Eric> I guess the geometry update show 8/24 @ 5pm
08:21:03 <ynpvisitor91> yesterday afternoon info
08:31:17 <JarnoO🎄> Daisy's close
08:31:44 <JarnoO🎄> Lion should be soon too if it continues its series
08:39:10 <Kat> :daisy:
08:49:47 <JarnoO🎄> morning Mike
08:50:12 <Mike J> Morning JarnoO and greetings to the rest of our cast of characters.
08:50:32 <ynpvisitor94> merry Christmas
08:52:10 <JarnoO🎄> fingers crossed Beehive within an hour or 3-4
08:52:59 <Kat> JarnoO🎄, lol
08:53:12 <Kat> Hi Mike J

08:55:56 <Kat> Smoke moved back in
08:59:22 <JarnoO🎄> morning Michael
08:59:48 <Michael> Hi JarnoO
08:59:49 <JarnoO🎄> Lion end of series
08:59:52 <KorbenC(tablet)> Hi M
09:00:12 <Michael> Bummer. But Lion likes to do that to me.
09:04:36 <Michael> Took some digging to find a map (from 8/23) of the Lone Star fire. Wish they would update and post info to Inciweb.
09:05:54 <Forestbewithyou> Morning everyone
09:06:01 <KorbenC(tablet)> Forestbewithyou🎄🌳🌲, merry Christmas
09:06:02 <JarnoO🎄> morning Forest
09:06:06 <Michael> Morning, Forest.
09:06:38 <KorbenC(tablet)> Jimbo, hey
09:07:10 <JarnoO🎄> morning Jimbo. Iodine wasn't heavy for you yesterday, I see. Nearly doubled in weightg
09:07:12 <JarnoO🎄> weight*
09:07:25 <BathDubnium> Morning all - it looked like activity picked up on YNR seismograph about 0720; not SB?
09:07:45 <BathDubnium> Hi Korben
09:07:51 <JarnoO🎄> no, appears mechanical
09:07:58 <BathDubnium> Yes, JarnoO, pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
09:08:22 <BathDubnium> I didn't think so, no one said anything.
09:08:29 <Michael> Hi Jimbo.
09:09:16 <BathDubnium> Hello Michael
09:09:32 <Eric> Morning Jimbo
09:09:32 <Kat> Grotto?
09:09:35 <JarnoO🎄> Kat, Grotto was already ie @ 0908

09:28:09 <Eric> Hi Katie

09:28:15 <Eric> Happy NP day!
09:28:29 <Kat> :D
09:28:55 <Eric> I just posted Mt. Rainier on YIP :-D
09:29:23 <CraigC> YIP?
09:29:36 <Eric> Yellowstone Insiders Page
09:29:44 <CraigC> ah
09:29:51 <Eric> YIH, Yellowstone Insiders Hub
09:29:53 <Eric> woops

09:30:27 <Eric> Katie is the big cheeze there
09:30:50 <JarnoO🎄> time to make dinner
09:31:05 <Eric> Enjoy Jarno
09:34:02 <KorbenC(tablet)> Dave!!!! Hi
09:34:10 <Dave from B™> Happy Tuesday everyone!
09:34:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Merry Christmas
09:34:31 <Kat> Dave from B™, back at you!
09:34:48 <CraigC> hey Dave!
09:34:50 <KorbenC(tablet)> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi, mery christmas
09:34:59 <Forestbewithyou> Hi dave
09:35:26 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:35:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Great Aurum splash
09:35:33 <Eric> Hey Coop
09:35:55 <KorbenC(tablet)> Eric, hola
09:36:10 <Eric> Yes, Aurum looks ready to rumble!
09:36:12 <Dave from B™> Well, it lasted 2 weeks....Becca is moving back home this weekend since none of her classes on actually meeting on campus
09:36:30 <CraigC> Dave from B™, that's good, no?
09:36:31 <Eric> Sorry to hear that Dave, but not surprised.
09:36:51 <Dave from B™> Parker is moving into his own appt on Saturday
09:36:55 <Katie> Dave from B™, this year is going to feel so weird. I usually enjoy the season of the return of the students to Missoula. And Griz football. And, and, and...
09:37:14 <Eric> I think school where not being honest about bringing people back on to campuses...pretty negligent IMHO.
09:37:18 <Dave from B™> Taylor and Keaton are living with us. They sold their townhome and just bought a house that will be ready in a month
09:37:30 <Eric> Nice!
09:37:45 <Eric> You got family going every which way
09:37:47 <Dave from B™> Yep, Katie. I was really looking forward to tailgating after buying out Travato.
09:38:32 <Dave from B™> Yep. You should see our basement and garage. there is stuff everywhere
09:39:45 <Dave from B™> Hey, CriagC. Yes, it's good. Maybe she can still get a SB this year
09:40:01 <Kat> Hope we don't miss Aurum
09:40:30 <Eric> ohh, we have BrianR down at Grotto, we should be getting lots of info now!
09:40:40 <Dave from B™> Eric and CraigC, what do you use to be able to use your computer/internet in your RV?
09:41:03 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I don't. I have to go into West to find wifi
09:41:06 <Dave from B™> Nice to see Brian R is out in the haze
09:41:31 <Eric> I generally don't...the tin cans are hard on signal. But you can install an external antenna that goes through where you TV antenna goes.
09:42:04 <Eric> The antenna than "repeats" the signal inside your RV.
09:42:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey Craig, Athearn just released an F59PH in Frontrunner paint.
09:42:29 <Eric> Katie might have some good suggestions for RV repeaters as wireless is her business :-D
09:42:47 <Dave from B™> The 9 night Oregon Coast trip is a test to see if I can work a few hours a day while traveling....Going to buy a Verizon Jet Pack and an antenna(Weboost)
09:42:49 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Eric
09:42:57 <Eric> Hi Forest
09:43:11 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Katie...didn't mean to leave the expert out of the convo:)
09:43:19 <Eric> Might want to look at running an external antenna for your weboost Dave
09:43:42 <Dave from B™> I still haven't bought anything. Next 2 days decisions will be made
09:43:58 <Dave from B™> I thought weboost came with an antenna
09:44:06 <Dave from B™> external
09:44:42 <Eric>
09:44:53 <Eric> weboost makes all kinds of products
09:44:58 <Dave from B™> That is the model I'm looking at
09:45:01 <Eric> That one has the external antenna
09:45:06 <Eric> ahh, then you should be good
09:45:10 <Katie> When I'm mobile, I just use Verizon. If I don't have it, I don't have it...
09:45:55 <Eric> I know they make nice wifi repeaters too Dave...if you have a camping world near by...ask them about installing a wifi repeater too.
09:46:06 <Eric> They help a LOT at RV parks with wifi
09:46:17 <Dave from B™> This 9 night trip will be 3-4 weeks next fall if I can be comforable working on the road
09:46:24 <Eric> otherwise you will have junk signal inside your RV
09:46:57 <Eric> But you might get away with just verizon cell data most of the time
09:47:18 <Dave from B™> Blackwell wifi was awful...that's why I'm going the cell route
09:47:57 <Dave from B™> I've heard from many that RV parks wifi is notoriously bad
09:48:16 <Eric> Yes, the RV park wifi are usually pretty bad.
09:48:51 <Eric> free wifi comcast connection split between 200 of your closest friends at the park :-P
09:49:06 <Dave from B™> all who want to stream:)
09:49:58 <Dave from B™> If this works out Grand Canyon and Utah parks next Sept/Oct....get your calendars open Eric and Craig so you can come visit:)
09:50:02 <Michael> Hi Dave.
09:50:12 <Dave from B™> Hi Michael
09:50:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Remember the days of dial up when you would lose the internet if someone picked up the phone?
09:50:44 <Dave from B™> I do, Kevin. Or, if you opened 2 programs your computer crashed?
09:50:46 <Michael> Yes, fondly.
09:52:59 <Dave from B™> CraigC, are you all gassed up and ready to go? You been hiow for TOO many days!
09:53:06 <Dave from B™> home*
09:53:12 <SantaFe108> back
09:53:47 <SantaFe108> if you're going to utah parks you better visit my main man bryce canyon
09:54:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I love the Navajo Loop trail
09:54:27 <Dave from B™> Yep. Hoodoos are on the top of the list
09:54:33 <SantaFe108> my namesake
09:54:35 <Eric> OF
09:54:46 <Dave from B™> Never been on the trail but was staring at them from the rim with my mom 20 years ago
09:54:53 <Eric> I am down for meeting in Utah next fall!
09:54:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bryce (and Zion) under a full moon are awesome but watch for cougars.
09:55:12 <Eric> You up to doing Rim to Rim Dave :-D
09:55:17 <SantaFe108> bryce has so many fun trails through the canyon
09:55:24 <Dave from B™> Eric, I thought you might be. Let me get thru the test run and then we can strategize
09:55:37 <SantaFe108> would be cool if bryce got a railroad like grand canyon
09:55:48 <Eric> Yikes, NO
09:55:55 <Dave from B™> Eric, I want to but we would have to find my wife something to do for a couple of days:)
09:56:08 <Eric> :-P
09:56:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Be a LOT of rail SantaFe.
09:56:41 <Eric> Well, maybe our wives could find something to do together :-D
09:56:45 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, lol be worth it
09:57:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> UP used to drop passengers off at Cedar City and then bus to the parks.
09:58:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
09:58:51 <Dave from B™> True, Eric. I'm sure they could find trouble on thier own
10:00:19 <Kat> OT
10:00:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is that Perry Mason music again. Better put on my seat belt.
10:01:00 <Eric> :-P
10:01:15 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, I sent you an e-mail about next week
10:01:26 <Jeff> its so busy right now at lower hams I need a seat belt
10:02:07 <Kat> bbl all
10:02:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks
10:02:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I may stop by next week Jeff.
10:03:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum still looks happy
10:03:12 <Jeff> Nice Kevin. Yeah we're so freaking slow right now
10:03:59 <Dave from B™> Kevin, where are you staying?
10:04:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lodge cabins
10:04:31 <Eric> Must have gotten a potty cabin
10:05:02 <SantaFe108> kevin u are geyser next week?
10:05:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep. They had 2 days and I grabbed them a couple months ago.
10:05:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be there 2nd through the 4th.
10:05:44 <ynpvisitor118> you mean gazer SantaFe?
10:05:49 <SantaFe108> oops yes
10:06:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Both may apply....
10:06:29 <Eric> hopefully Kevin isn't a geyser next week :-P
10:06:35 <SantaFe108> I remeber when someone said "kevin geyser"
10:06:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> For sure
10:06:45 <Eric> Pump!
10:07:18 <Eric> Aurum is ready to rocket!
10:07:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum doing big splashes.
10:08:05 <Eric> I don't remember Aurum having this big preplay show before
10:08:22 <SantaFe108> Kevin is ready to erupt
10:08:22 <ynpvisitor118> I don't see Aurum, but on delay as usual
10:08:28 <Eric> I know its vents liked to push water, but not this big
10:08:45 <SantaFe108> nice sploshy
10:08:51 <ynpvisitor118> now I can see the area
10:08:58 <ynpvisitor118> must be on major delay
10:09:00 <Eric> A Couple people are enjoying Doublet thumps waiting for Aurum
10:09:50 <Eric> Santa Hats at OF static :-D
10:10:07 <SantaFe108> what are we getting fro christmas
10:10:14 <ynpvisitor118> It is August 25
10:10:27 <Eric> Hopefully Aurum in my stocking :-D
10:10:32 <ynpvisitor118> Christmas in the park
10:10:47 <SantaFe108> and oblong
10:10:54 <SantaFe108> put that in the stocking
10:11:11 <Eric> Ryan(Out Of His Mine)
10:11:38 <Dave from B™> anyone else read that with a "D"?:D
10:11:53 <Eric> No, not at all :-P
10:12:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Would that be a Ryan miner?
10:12:07 <Eric> Aurum is just chugging
10:12:17 <SantaFe108> what he be mining though
10:12:31 <Ryan(-9)> Thats what aurum does to me for hours
10:12:48 <Ryan(-9)> I can even see the satellite vents are on
10:12:58 <Ryan(-9)> And i lost my mind years ago
10:13:12 <Eric> Get out of the way people!
10:13:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We need a laser prod on the cam.
10:13:48 <Eric> Yes please :-D
10:13:56 <SantaFe108> we need pump to distract them
10:14:24 <Eric> I need to get to work...but I want Aurum first!
10:14:40 <Ryan(-9)> Still no SB I see
10:14:44 <ynpvisitor118> well you get pump
10:15:10 <Ryan(-9)> nice water return on the logger though
10:16:18 <Ryan(-9)> Eric was the logger data thing for Riverside ever fixed?
10:16:34 <Eric> I believe so
10:16:37 <Ryan(-9)> Like can I access and download the logger data for Riverisde on GT?
10:16:43 <Eric> try it
10:17:11 <Ryan(-9)> ThAt InVoLvEs WoRk ThAT I dOnT WaNt To Do
10:17:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> First he is a miner, then a logger....
10:17:36 <Ryan(-9)> ^Then a union worker...
10:18:19 <Ryan(-9)> (Dont go insane, we all know that some professions have people still emplyed when they shouldn't be because of their unions..)
10:18:50 <Ryan(-9)> I got it downloaded but now I cant open it!
10:19:15 <Eric> Kevin, you will appreciate this. In Washington one of our attenuator drivers used his truck to crush a pickup that was trying to bypass him.
10:19:41 <Eric>
10:19:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have seen that happen a time or two.
10:20:03 <Ryan(-9)> I have Riverside data from 2002 to 2010 but nothing after that
10:20:29 <Eric> The driver had to use the truck as a battering ram to stop the driver from going into the work zone.
10:20:43 <Eric> arum
10:20:44 <Eric> .
10:20:44 <Eric> .
10:20:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum
10:20:47 <Eric> ..
10:20:48 <Eric> .
10:20:49 <Eric> .
10:20:50 <Ryan(-9)> Yay!
10:20:51 <Forestbewithyou> awesome
10:21:13 <Eric> Such a cool geyser!
10:21:24 <Forestbewithyou> ^^^
10:21:27 <ynpvisitor67> i'm sure delayed
10:21:28 <SantaFe108> pure gold
10:21:28 <Dave from B™> '
10:21:36 <Michael> :)
10:21:46 <SantaFe108> a nice suprise for the tourists happening by
10:21:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You could see that starting even with the OF runoff.
10:21:54 <SantaFe108> I love when a lesser known geyser suprises tourists
10:22:02 <Forestbewithyou> totally SF
10:22:12 <Eric> Guy taking picture of sponge doing nothing while Aurum erupts behind him...classic!
10:22:25 <Eric> Thanks Kevin!
10:22:26 <SantaFe108> Eric, I don't expect any less from UGB tourists :)
10:22:59 <KorbenC(tablet)> Nice
10:23:00 <Dave from B™> Yes. Thanks Kevin
10:23:05 <Michael> It takes a while to develop surround-sound 360-degree hearing.
10:23:25 <SantaFe108> that every minute boiling of sponge is very important to take a picture of! you may never see it again.. until the next minute.
10:24:13 <Eric> AB
10:24:38 <Eric> time
10:24:56 <ynpvisitor82> Your average tourist has not idea if Sponge will erupt, or if Aurum will go again in 5 minutes.
10:25:03 <SantaFe108> cya eric, good luck mining/logging/being a geyser
10:25:19 <SantaFe108> 82, true
10:25:45 <Rice> We were all like that once.
10:25:54 <Forestbewithyou> fair
10:26:27 <Eric> If water is shooting above your head...look at it!
10:27:12 <Eric> If you are going to travel thousands of miles to enjoy something, learn a little about it before you go!
10:28:14 <SantaFe108> suprising amount of people think that OF is the only geyser that exists
10:29:07 <ynpvisitor118> It is the one that is advertised
10:29:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Easy to see. Then move on...
10:30:01 <ynpvisitor118> How is the fire up near Lone Star?
10:30:28 <Dave from B™> Big enough that Craig will need a firer suit to record Lone Star times:)
10:30:52 <Rice> I think the park could do a better job of letting people know, If Geyser "X" looks like this, stick around a little while you might get a surprise.
10:31:10 <SantaFe108> yes
10:31:43 <SantaFe108> I think aurum's sign says 2.5 - 5 hour intervals
10:31:50 <ynpvisitor118> yes
10:31:59 <SantaFe108> I wish
10:32:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But I have seen tourists not stay during an Indy because the have to get back for Old Faithful.
10:32:18 <Dave from B™> Rice, for those who are on a schedule, they don't care. I find that at any park, if you want to know more info, you ask someone nearby
10:32:24 <SantaFe108> the funny thing is, OF looks even better from BH and you could get a duel!
10:33:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is what I tell them and they still leave.
10:33:28 <SantaFe108> tsk tsk, guess there's no helping that
10:33:41 <Rice> Dave from B™, I understand the schedule part, I have been there, did that last summer, at too many parks.
10:34:15 <Rice> And wife and kids drive how long you can stand on a Hot Boardwalk and wait.
10:35:45 <SantaFe108> my family just abandones me at UGB and says see you later
10:36:08 <SantaFe108> while they go stare at rocks or something idk what they do
10:36:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> First time I went I saw everything you could see through a windshield.
10:36:51 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, oof
10:37:04 <Eric> Yes, but the first time you went, you could drive up to Daisy :-P
10:37:14 <SantaFe108> lol true
10:37:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes you could.
10:37:34 <Rice> I didn't think they had cars back then?
10:37:50 <SantaFe108> the SB upper deck is just kevin's old parking spot
10:38:02 <Eric> His horse and buggy had a windshield Rice
10:38:32 <Eric> OF static stuck at 9:47 :-(
10:38:41 <SantaFe108> I think kevin would hire people to construct track infront of him so he could drive and deconstruct it behind him
10:39:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think we did OF, West Thumb, Mud Volcano, Brink of the Falls. Mammoth upper, and Norris Porcelain Basin.
10:39:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy
10:40:00 <SantaFe108> not too bad
10:40:10 <Dave from B™> Rice, the van has allowed us to slow down and take in lots of hidden Wallace, Idaho
10:41:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Red Canyon before Bryce is good Dave.
10:41:40 <SantaFe108> if you want to go to the middle of nowhere go to escalante UT
10:41:41 <Rice> Kevin L™ 🌵, That was a nice area, unexpected for us last summer.
10:41:47 <SantaFe108> and eat at Nemo's
10:41:59 <SantaFe108> hello lindas
10:42:00 <LindaG> Morning all!
10:42:06 <LindaG> SantaFe108, hi
10:42:43 <Dave from B™> Kevin, isn't there a bike trail in Red Canyon?
10:42:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Merry Christmas Linda
10:43:04 <Dave from B™> I couldn't find Nemo's last time
10:43:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think so Dave.
10:43:19 <Rice> Dave from B™, One thing I regret is after a trip I always find things that we were so close to and didn't stop. Bodie Ghost town was one of those last summer.
10:43:28 <SantaFe108> last time I was at Nemo's we had to leave because of flash flooding
10:43:37 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, Merry Christmas! Is it Christmas in August today?
10:43:44 <CraigC> Thunder Mountain bike trail..... most gorgeous ride I have ever done
10:43:46 <SantaFe108> yes!
10:44:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes Linda
10:44:27 <LindaG> I wonder if they are all gathered around the tree singing carols
10:44:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😃🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
10:44:49 <CraigC> here is a small segment of the Thunder Mtn trail I did;
10:45:19 <SantaFe108> ^ craig on his way to mugwump
10:45:35 <LindaG> Oh hes back I'm the park
10:45:43 <SantaFe108> no
10:45:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I always like to find ancient locals and ask them about the area. They love to talk and are a wealth of information.
10:45:48 <SantaFe108> is he?
10:45:56 <CraigC> I am home
10:45:59 <SantaFe108> craig when u go back to yelowsotne
10:46:12 <Eric> I hope not Linda!
10:46:12 <CraigC> next couple of days
10:46:13 <LindaG> SantaFe108, oh the video
10:46:19 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
10:46:26 <CraigC> hey Linda
10:46:32 <Eric> Being inside singing carols is probably not the best plan during a pandemic
10:46:49 <Eric> Nice 3c energy
10:47:03 <LindaG> Eric, yes that is true, I keep forgetting g about pandemic, my bad
10:49:01 <LindaG> MC jarno
10:49:40 <JarnoO🎄> morning Linda
10:50:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
10:50:54 <Eric> and good morning Linda :-D
10:51:23 <Ryan(-9)> R does not like converting dates and times
10:51:28 <LindaG> Eric, morning g
10:52:03 <KorbenC🎅> on my lunch break :D
10:52:03 <SantaFe108> hello korben
10:52:14 <SantaFe108> lunch at 1052?
10:52:14 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😃❄❄❄❄☃️
10:52:26 <LindaG> KorbenC🎅, hi
10:52:44 <SantaFe108> italics santa looks weird
10:54:14 <KorbenC🎅> Hi Linda, SF
10:54:27 <KorbenC🎅> SF, well its actually 11:10 to 11:40 today, but my tacher let us go early
10:54:35 <SantaFe108> oh ok
10:54:42 <Michael> It took me until now to notice the date andfigure out why all the Xmas references.
10:54:51 <LindaG> Lower Ham has their tree and sled out
10:55:11 <LindaG> Michael, merry Christmas
10:55:36 <Michael> And a happy New...Labor Day?
10:55:48 <LindaG> Michael, lol indeed
10:56:40 <KorbenC🎅> Hi Michael, merry chirstmas
10:56:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
10:58:56 <Eric> nice
10:58:57 <Eric> mug
10:59:29 <Dave from B™> Isn't one Xmas, enough?:)
10:59:31 <LindaG> Wow
10:59:56 <KorbenC🎅> WOW, not SB yet
11:00:21 <LindaG> Dave from B™, 😃 yeah but this one doesnt cost anything
11:00:43 <Dave from B™> Very true, Linda:)
11:01:07 <LindaG> 😊
11:02:15 <LindaG> Dave from B™, and good morning 😊
11:02:42 <LindaG> Well gotta go out. I'll be back later
11:02:56 <KorbenC🎅> LindaG, bye
11:02:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Later
11:03:01 <SantaFe108> cya linda
11:03:05 <JarnoO🎄> cya Linda
11:03:06 <ynpvisitor69> No one posted Aurum
11:03:22 <Eric> Bye Linda
11:03:30 <KorbenC🎅> ynpvisitor69, it is now
11:03:31 <Eric> I will 69
11:03:39 <Eric> ohh, nevermind
11:04:04 <ynpvisitor69> :thumbsup:
11:08:27 <Michael> I'd better head out. Enjoy the Grand-Beehive-OF show this afternoon!
11:08:40 <JarnoO🎄> cya Michael
11:10:14 <ynpvisitor73> An idea why the road is closed at tower? They do not say anything about it.
11:11:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Road construction
11:11:26 <SantaFe108> This construction project will widen the road and provide additional/improved pullouts; create a larger, safer parking area at Tower Fall General Store; and improve the trail and overlook for Tower Fall.
11:11:37 <SantaFe108> from the ynp website
11:12:06 <SantaFe108> the road will reopen in may of 2022
11:12:46 <ynpvisitor73> Odd it was not linked on the page I looked at. It just said closed.
11:13:19 <CraigC> Pump!
11:16:35 <Dave from B™> CraigC, anything different planned for Yellowstone Expedition #456?
11:25:14 <Ryan(-9)> R pulling more R bullshit
11:25:19 <Ryan(-9)> I hate all of you for goading me into this
11:28:44 <KorbenC🎅> I just beat my dad by 93pts in Cribbage, lol
11:28:58 <Dave from B™> It's more fun if you plug in Ryan when you see an R:D:D:D
11:29:44 <KorbenC🎅> "Ryan pulling mroe Ryan bullshit"
11:29:52 <KorbenC🎅> :D:D
11:29:55 <Dave from B™> exactly:D:D:D
11:30:05 <KorbenC🎅> Dave, it fits perfectly too
11:30:33 <Dave from B™> Really? Ryan has never done anything to me:D:D
11:30:47 <KorbenC🎅> lol, and neither has a keyboard ;)
11:30:49 <Ryan(-9)> That was Nayr
11:31:11 <Ryan(-9)> My evil twin - that's who did that to you, Dave.
11:31:26 <Ryan(-9)> Don't worry. I tracked Nayr down.... and I killed him.
11:31:50 <KorbenC🎅> Ryan, then how are you still laive? if you hunted down your evil twin wouldt you be dead now?
11:32:16 <Ryan(-9)> Nope, different person
11:32:17 <SantaFe108> the -9 isnt how many days he has till YNP, it's how many Nayrs are left in the world
11:32:39 <KorbenC🎅> SF, or its how many days until Norris goes D :)
11:32:40 <Ryan(-9)> Though now I understand why I dislike R, its the Ryan Maurer of programming languages
11:32:53 <KorbenC🎅> Ryan(-9), lmao
11:32:54 <Ryan(-9)> R - Ryan, makes sense
11:33:17 <KorbenC🎅> still no SB, crazy
11:33:20 <SantaFe108> Ryan(-9), whenever I see your last name it reminds me of rollercoaster manufacturer Maurer
11:33:38 <Ryan(-9)> I got SAWRM up, what are we at now?
11:33:53 <Ryan(-9)> oh its only 5d 8h
11:33:55 <KorbenC🎅> 5d 8h 33m
11:34:08 <KorbenC🎅> but only 3 hoursu ntil the cycle thing is gone
11:34:18 <KorbenC🎅> 2h 58minutes to be exact :D
11:34:36 <Ryan(-9)> or its shifting to longer intervals...
11:35:00 <Ryan(-9)> I never believed in the cycle thing, though the odds are very small it would shift back and forth like that for that long.
11:35:05 <Dave from B™> What newest & latest SB prediction model have I missed out on now?
11:35:27 <KorbenC🎅> well, my prediction was 4AMish +/-24 hours, so its got time! :)
11:35:57 <Ryan(-9)> Thats what - 1 in 2 chance?
11:36:21 <Ryan(-9)> 2^18 = 262144
11:36:30 <KorbenC🎅> Ryan(-9), whats a 1/2 chance is there being a D right before you get there, or 100% is Dave goes right now :P
11:36:36 <Ryan(-9)> So there is a 1 in 262144 chance that SB could have had that pattern last that long.
11:36:59 <Ryan(-9)> If there is a D there is a D.
11:37:16 <KorbenC🎅> yeah, but then its possible you have to go to the UGB
11:37:23 <Dave from B™> I'm hoping to be about 40 feet higher than Ryan over Labor Day
11:37:25 <Ryan(-9)> Nope
11:37:31 <Ryan(-9)> There is more to Yellowstone than geysers....
11:37:49 <SantaFe108> rocks
11:37:59 <KorbenC🎅> SantaFe108, no, erupting rocks :D
11:38:06 <Ryan(-9)> Dave, if SB erupts can I give you a hug - COVID or not??? LOL
11:38:20 <KorbenC🎅> theres really good fishing, but IDK if your into that R
11:38:21 <Dave from B™> I accept hugs
11:38:26 <SantaFe108> tell SB no erupting rocks!
11:38:31 <KorbenC🎅> well, back to school work.
11:38:36 <SantaFe108> cya korben
11:38:37 <Dave from B™> Becca figures she is close to my 80 hours before a SB
11:39:19 <Ryan(-9)> Yikes
11:39:33 <Ryan(-9)> BH looks happy
11:39:49 <Ryan(-9)> Hopefully there are a lot of happy people at Labor Day
11:39:52 <Forestbewithyou> well its lunch time for me
11:40:13 <Ryan(-9)> Would be nice after a really not fun year. I had another friend die of cancer last week...
11:40:53 <Ryan(-9)> Most years I have at least some kind of superlative event, or something I can think back to and go "wow" - not this year.
11:41:09 <Ryan(-9)> Though, discovering Speleogasm! was pretty flipping cool...
11:42:00 <SantaFe108> this year I can think back and go "wow that was really bad"
11:42:22 <Ryan(-9)> If I think the wrong way I can do that to every year since 2013.
11:43:01 <SantaFe108> 'ive seen more geysers this year then i've seen in my entire lif
11:43:31 <Ryan(-9)> So I try to think of the lights that outshone the darks for each year. Can't say thats happened for 2020 yet. This year has been pretty damn dark...
11:45:19 <SantaFe108> I agree
11:45:44 <SantaFe108> the highlight of this year so far is SB for me
11:46:09 <Ryan(-9)> This was the best thus far. Discovering this place will be a special feeling I won't soon forget.
11:46:32 <SantaFe108> beautiful cavern
11:46:46 <JarnoO🎄> indeed
11:46:56 <Ryan(-9)> I was on point for the survey, I went around the corner and into a room and starting shouting. "Speleogasm!" ("!" must be included) was the most appropriate, and tame, name we could come up with.
11:47:31 <SantaFe108> lol
11:47:32 <Ryan(-9)> A little alcove off the room had a collection of these stupidly intricate white formations. We named this one NEOWISE
11:48:00 <SantaFe108> the closest thing I got to a cavern where I live is the Calico Mine Ride at Knott's has a nice artificial cavern
11:48:16 <Ryan(-9)> That's a splattermite, which is a rather rare form of a stalagmite. To have it bright white like that with tiny rimstone dams on top is basically unheard of.
11:48:20 <SantaFe108> wow that is incredible
11:48:27 <Dave from B™> My highlight moment of 2020 was seeing roaring glacial fed rivers pouring out of NZ glaciers.
11:48:51 <SantaFe108> the section of the ride at Knott's is called the "heaven room"
11:48:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are a couple in Sequoia SantaFe.
11:49:10 <SantaFe108> iirc its all hand-made artificial cavern
11:49:13 <Ryan(-9)> Sequoia crystal cave?
11:49:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is one
11:49:41 <Ryan(-9)> Yeah, Sequoia has a couple nice ones, including one that is commercialized for tours.
11:49:57 <SantaFe108> even though it's not natural at all I enjoy the handiwork put in to make the room in the ride
11:50:19 <Ryan(-9)> Riannon and I sat in the room and laughed and giigled for almost 45 minutes. We ate lunch and just stared at everything.
11:50:26 <SantaFe108> lol
11:50:45 <Ryan(-9)> Everytime we would try to say something we would just start laughing again. I think the last time I have been unable top speak for that reason was Steamboat.
11:50:57 <SantaFe108> trying to find a good pic of the calico mine ride
11:51:13 <Ryan(-9)> the desert museum in Tuscon has an artificial cave that is so realistic I counted it in my cave log
11:51:40 <Ryan(-9)> Tuscon Desert Museum cave
11:51:49 <SantaFe108> uh oh
11:52:07 <SantaFe108> wow! that's artificial?!?
11:52:08 <Ryan(-9)> Thats all plastic. I am conviced they either found a real cave and coated it in varnish or they took things from caves and coated them in varnish
11:52:17 <Ryan(-9)>
11:52:19 <SantaFe108> that is insanely detailed
11:52:29 <Ryan(-9)> Yes, even had an active stream, a pit entrance, and three crawling sections in it.
11:52:55 <Ryan(-9)> Even the entrance was detailed perfectly
11:53:07 <SantaFe108> incredible
11:53:11 <Ryan(-9)> I highly reccomend visiting the entire museum when in Tuscon, but the cave specifically is amazing.
11:54:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is one in Peach Springs AZ that has a hotel and restaurant in it.
11:55:09 <SantaFe108> heres a picture of the "heaven room" from the Calico Mine Ride at Knott's Berry Farm
11:55:45 <Dave from B™> So, far an old married couple that wants to enjoy regular cave crawling or lanterns...what do you suggest, Ryan....Whole US is open game
11:55:53 <Ryan(-9)> Nice detail
11:55:57 <Ryan(-9)> Carlsbad Cavern
11:56:29 <Dave from B™> It is on our bucket list...wasn't sure if you had any other ideas.
11:56:33 <Ryan(-9)> Do the through trip: in the natural; entrance and out the elevator. You'll be astounded. Go in the summer, and in the evening watch 7 million bats leave the cave in just 20 minutes.
11:56:45 <Ryan(-9)> It's the Yellowstone of commercial caves
11:56:57 <Dave from B™> That would be cool
11:56:57 <SantaFe108>
11:57:20 <Ryan(-9)> I can not suggest it enough, but I do understand its limited it youre going "only" for Carlsbad (which can be seen in one day)
11:57:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Boyden Caverns is the other one near Sequoia.
11:57:33 <SantaFe108> I have been to Boyden
11:57:40 <Ryan(-9)> Mammoth is very nice. Its a VERY big cave (430mi and growing)
11:58:03 <SantaFe108> I have been to Ape Cave by mt. st helens
11:58:06 <Ryan(-9)> It has like 15 entrances or something, and many of them have developed tours. So you could go spend a week and each day see a different part of the cave.
11:58:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Carlsbad is a great stop. There are some good rocket museums in Roswell not far away.
11:58:53 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> Depends on what you want. Mammoth is unique because its the longest cave in the world, and you get to see miles of passages.
11:59:03 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> Carlsbad is just... WOW. Un-effing-real.
11:59:31 <SantaFe108> Outdoor loading station for C.M.R
12:00:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a friend that was a Cobra pilot. They were flying at night and the light circuit went out so they spotted a parking lot and landed there. It was Carlsbad Caverns.
12:00:21 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, you ever been to knott's
12:00:50 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> Carlsbad Cavern, both on and off trail stuff
12:01:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He sent the gunner out to find out where they were. He said the ranger just laughed and asked if the Army didn't supply maps anymore.
12:01:11 <Dave from B™> I would combine Carlsbad with other NM and AZ stops
12:01:18 <Eric> I have been in many sections of Mammoth, my wifes family lives like 20 minutes away.
12:01:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have been to Knotts but a long time ago.
12:01:42 <Eric> Pump!
12:02:00 <SantaFe108> Kevin L™ 🌵, so much cool stuff these days, Calico Mine Ride had a complete overhaul recently so it is all new effects
12:02:02 <Eric> It seems every piece of property in that area has a cave :-P
12:02:35 <Eric> They don't have drainage ditches, they just have sinkholes into caves.
12:02:39 <SantaFe108> and the 2-8-0 D&RGWR
12:03:38 <SantaFe108> man, I miss Knott's, one of the best theme parks I have ever been to
12:03:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I may check it out SantaFe
12:04:04 <SantaFe108> Also, the best wooden coaster on the west coast
12:06:48 <Eric> uhh, magic mountain wooden coaster is pretty amazing.
12:07:01 <Eric> was the largest in the world when I went there in the 80s :-D
12:07:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Isn't that in Walley World Eric?
12:07:18 <Dave from B™> Yep. it is. After experiencing the Aftershock I think my roller coaster days are almost over
12:07:33 <Eric> haha
12:07:59 <Eric> I don't do high speed stomach doesn't like them. But old wooden ones are awesome
12:08:18 <Dave from B™> My brain doesn't like be shaken anymore:)
12:08:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do like Thunder Mountain
12:08:59 <SantaFe108> GhostRider isn't really the classic design woodie, its built for high lateral and negative G's
12:09:37 <SantaFe108> it has a reputation on being absolutely insane non-stop intensioty
12:09:43 <Dave from B™> I love Disney coasters becvause they are a little more tame with lots of theming
12:09:51 <Eric> I like the newer kids coast at Disneyland...Dwarfs Mine or something like that...silent but fun
12:10:08 <SantaFe108> Thunder Mountain is my favorite ride at Disneyland
12:10:09 <Eric> smoothest coaster I have ever been on
12:10:14 <SantaFe108> followed closely by Indiana Jones Adventure
12:14:21 <Dave from B™> I miss the old geyser at Disneyland
12:14:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The mine ride?
12:15:15 <Dave from B™> Yep
12:16:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are good shots of that in the movie "40 Pounds of Trouble".
12:16:31 <Dave from B™> I wish I had done the burro ride before they took it out
12:17:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Remember the microscope?
12:17:36 <Dave from B™> Monsanto journey to the Center of the Earth?
12:17:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Something like that.
12:18:08 <Dave from B™> Barely remember it
12:18:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You shrink to the size of an atom.
12:19:16 <Dave from B™> That's the one
12:19:22 <SantaFe108> Adventure thru inner space?
12:20:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. I think Star Tours is there now.
12:20:51 <SantaFe108> yes, star tours replaced it
12:22:20 <SantaFe108> love being the rebel spy on star tours
12:39:59 <JarnoO🎄> thought it was going to stop there for a preplay delay
12:43:02 <Dave from B™> Off to play russian roulette at the fitness center. See you all later
12:43:09 <JarnoO🎄> cya Dave, good luck
12:43:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Later
12:44:03 <SantaFe108> cya dyave
12:44:56 <Forestbewithyou> hahahah SF
12:46:07 <JarnoO🎄> afternoon Jeff
12:48:32 <JarnoO🎄> Grand at 18h triple
12:49:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Think Daisy was during OF
12:49:45 <Forestbewithyou> wow there really isn't anyone in basin
12:50:07 <SANTA Fe108> seems like just adam
12:51:02 <SANTA Fe108> I wouldn't blame em
12:51:17 <Forestbewithyou> And BrianR since he logged a grotto at 0906
12:53:48 <JarnoO🎄> that was a big Crested push there
12:54:24 <JarnoO🎄> probably the biggest steam plume I've seen considering the current temperatures
12:54:29 <SANTA Fe108> didnt see :(
12:54:41 <SANTA Fe108> just got bakc
12:55:21 <JarnoO🎄> you'd actually want to be looking at 1253½
12:55:59 <JarnoO🎄> new NPS Daisy prediction
12:56:04 <JarnoO🎄> means we've missed it
12:56:11 <SANTA Fe108> wow that is large
12:57:42 <Forestbewithyou> I saw a pretty big one while I was sitting at churn one day
13:03:05 <JarnoO🎄> left a note just in case
13:03:16 <SANTA Fe108> :thumbsup:
13:10:20 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> The Crested Plume could have been caused by an eruption. I am team "Crested Pool is a geyser" after Demetri and I saw bursting up to the height of the railing in 2014.
13:10:47 <KorbenC(tablet)> I am with ryan
13:10:47 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> Mildly horrifying too as it was on the edge of the pool next to the BW and angled. Lasted about 15 seconds. Loud and fairly violent
13:11:42 <Ryan(-9)(meetin> I definitely would not throw any flags at a "? wc" entry, though there really is no way to check it.
13:15:58 <JarnoO🎄> looks like a Turban
13:16:54 <SANTA Fe108> yeah
13:22:08 <JarnoO🎄> hi Linda
13:22:19 <LindaG> Ho Ho Ho!
13:22:24 <SANTA Fe108> hello lidna

13:25:02 <KorbenC(tablet)> Jeff, going to SB?
13:25:29 <Jeff> I gotta change but I might head up for an hour
13:26:48 <🎅🏻SANTA> very nice
13:26:52 <LindaG> Jeff, hey
13:27:03 <Jeff> Hey Linda
13:27:38 <LindaG> Jeff, MC, so do they have a tree or not?
13:28:50 <LindaG> Washburn is a little clearer
13:28:53 <Jeff> Yea
13:29:03 <LindaG> Jeff, 😃👍
13:29:17 <Jeff> We use the little tree we hang ornaments on for the rest of the season
13:30:00 <LindaG> Nice
13:32:59 <Ryan(-9)> Really bummed they stopped decorating the tree on that rock in the Firehole.
13:34:04 <Ryan(-9)> Also my phone keeps dinging with severe weather warnings.
13:34:15 <JarnoO🎄> Grand
13:34:17 <Ryan(-9)> I feel like a bowling pion on an alley with these storms
13:34:19 <Ryan(-9)> Grand
13:34:46 <Ryan(-9)> nice light
13:34:58 <JarnoO🎄> at last a Grand which OF can't ruin
13:35:06 <LindaG> Ryan(-9), atroms are coming, but it will cool Down
13:35:21 <LindaG> *-storms
13:35:22 <Ryan(-9)> It needs to dry out some too
13:35:44 <Ryan(-9)> It is extremely humid here. In the ine this morning is was 65 degrees and I was dripping with sweat
13:35:59 <LindaG> Very humid here too
13:36:07 <Forestbewithyou> It is 91.9 with a dew pt of 72.9 with 54% humidity
13:36:12 <Forestbewithyou> feels like 99
13:36:30 <Ryan(-9)> Wow, perfect NPS prediction haha
13:36:54 <🎅🏻SANTA> 97 right now
13:37:10 <🎅🏻SANTA> tomorrow we're supposed to go 103, but its slowly getting cooler
13:37:36 <🎅🏻SANTA> beautiful grand
13:40:47 <LindaG> I'm about the same as forest temp wise.
13:41:39 <LindaG> Shame no snow on washburn
13:42:49 <Ryan(-9)> wow i can see the hillside
13:43:44 <Ryan(-9)> very nice grand
13:45:02 <JarnoO🎄> b1 done
13:45:34 <LindaG> And I an see the lake
13:45:36 <JarnoO🎄> is that rain or ash?
13:45:44 <LindaG> *can
13:45:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That almost looks like snow
13:45:55 <LindaG> Floating
13:46:14 <ynpvisitor22> Perfect wind conditions! Thanks Camop!
13:46:14 <LindaG> Might be ash
13:49:24 <LindaG> Maybe they were throwing fake snow off roof to set the mood 😉
13:50:59 <LindaG> Look at cloud on OF static, excelsior?
13:51:21 <LindaG> It movedmtomeight
13:51:51 <LindaG> Just a little visible now
13:52:21 <LindaG> Gone
13:52:41 <🎅🏻SANTA> excelsior?
13:52:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> From the water on the Inn I would say that was rain.
13:52:57 <🎅🏻SANTA> woah its a spiny ride now
13:53:00 <🎅🏻SANTA> spinny*
13:53:16 <LindaG> Yeah looked wet
13:53:33 <JarnoO🎄> Not sure if rain or snow has shiny particles to it:
13:54:08 <LindaG> Its 72 but it is yellowstone and it is christmas
13:54:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is what rain looks like on the Flagstaff railcam
13:54:25 <JarnoO🎄> it does?
13:55:32 <JarnoO🎄> looking at the radar it was probably some rain actually. Or maybe they wet the Inn just in case
13:55:56 <JarnoO🎄> doesn't look like rain has fallen elsewhere in the basin
13:56:19 <JarnoO🎄> oh well, luckily no still-burning ash
13:59:05 <Ryan(-9)> wonder if we can see the lone star fire now?
13:59:11 <Ryan(-9)> since it has cleared up some
13:59:53 <Ryan(-9)> BSB?
14:01:03 <Ryan(-9)> I think BSB is ie
14:01:06 <Ryan(-9)> weakly
14:03:24 <JarnoO🎄> weak response from Bee
14:16:15 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello?
14:16:20 <🎅🏻SANTA> I think my chat broke
14:16:20 <JarnoO🎄> hi?
14:16:38 <🎅🏻SANTA> oh ok, just the chatters page is non-existant
14:16:59 <JarnoO🎄> it does that occasionally
14:23:26 <Ryan(-9)> toodles
14:23:29 <Ryan(-9)> enjoy SB
14:23:36 <JarnoO🎄> cya Ryan
14:24:32 <🎅🏻SANTA> cya ruyanb

14:37:44 <JarnoO🎄> we missed the last one
14:37:47 <Betty> hi 🎅🏻SANTA🎅🏻Fe108, JarnoO🎄, Kevin L™ 🌵
14:38:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF likes to mess with it
14:39:04 <🎅🏻SANTA> rip
14:39:23 <🎅🏻SANTA> Kevin L™ 🌵, they should have a cactus with christmas lights for your name
14:39:24 <LindaG> Betty, hi, WC
14:39:42 <LindaG> Lol *MC
14:39:59 <🎅🏻SANTA> daisy looks fountainy from this angle
14:40:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They do decorate cactus here
14:40:04 <LindaG> 🎅🏻SANTA🎅🏻Fe108, they should
14:41:01 <🎅🏻SANTA> well now our daisy prediction is back on track :D
14:42:12 <Betty> hi LindaG
14:43:19 <🎅🏻SANTA> we should get a riverside emote in the smiley box

14:46:51 <LindaG> Laura forecast as cat 3 hurricane
14:48:35 <🎅🏻SANTA> ho ho hello korben

14:49:30 <🎅🏻SANTA> im dreaming of a giantess christmas
14:50:30 <LindaG> Just like the ones I used to know 🎶🎶
14:50:42 <KorbenC🎅> LindaG, hi
14:50:49 <LindaG> KorbenC🎅, hi
14:51:36 <KorbenC🎅> Jarno, I see the tail end of noise on YNR, too bad its just some waves
14:52:04 <JarnoO🎄> hm, maybe 25 September 1997 had a "proto-event cycle", with a 14m River pause @ 1836 and Bottom Vent for ±1m50s @ 1850. F&M was 26 minutes later, @ 1916
14:53:08 <JarnoO🎄> this was never noted before, which makes it all the more likely the observer found Bottom Vent erupting a weird thing and perhaps the River pause as well
15:02:32 <JarnoO🎄> afternoon Graham
15:02:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> afternoon/evening
15:02:36 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Graham

15:06:09 <Forestbewithyou> ^^^
15:06:19 <LindaG> I had wandered away
15:06:22 <Betty> hi Brian
15:06:25 <BrianG> Thanks for the text!
15:06:35 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello brian
15:06:42 <🎅🏻SANTA> welcome to today's showing of Indiana Jones
15:06:46 <BrianG> Hi Betty
15:06:55 <Betty> hi Kitt
15:07:03 <Kitt> Hi
15:07:22 <JarnoO🎄> afternoon Brian, Kitt
15:07:27 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello kit
15:07:31 <🎅🏻SANTA> t^
15:07:32 <LindaG> Hi bee watchers
15:07:42 <Betty> smoke´s not too bad this afternoon
15:08:07 <LindaG> Looks like its improved
15:08:18 <ynpvisitor65> temporary
15:08:18 <BrianG> Better in my part of CA as well
15:08:20 <Kitt> Doing our part to physical distance
15:08:21 <Forestbewithyou> The camera shaking makes it look like the image is being compressed and then uncrompressed
15:08:37 <🎅🏻SANTA> lol
15:08:57 <Kitt> Why is it shaking, since it is mounted on the Inn?
15:08:59 <🎅🏻SANTA> or the aspect ratio is being messed with
15:09:43 <JarnoO🎄> maybe wind gusts?
15:09:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> the wobbling is something wth compression/decompression. cam control feed is steady
15:09:48 <Kitt> Looking forward to seeing all of Beehive
15:10:00 <🎅🏻SANTA> yes :D
15:10:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not on mine Graham
15:10:54 <BrianG> I would really like to *hear* BH
15:10:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, well its been steady on mine
15:11:08 <Betty> glad to hear it´s better in CA, Brian. I saw horrible pics earlier this week :-(
15:11:44 <BrianG> Well it’s really just a wind direction thing unfortunately
15:11:51 <Kitt> smoke to our west has been so bad that Worland looks like the ugb
15:12:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> that saves you the drive
15:12:55 <Kitt> the last 2 days have been a little better
15:12:59 <BrianG> Right now smoke is blowing to the largely unpopulated NE corner of CA
15:13:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> are you going again this season Kitt?
15:14:08 <Kitt> I would like my spouse to finally see a Steamboat eruption, but physical distancing isn't happening in the park
15:14:11 <Eric> bhi
15:14:22 <🎅🏻SANTA> yes
15:14:23 <Eric> In case anyone didn't notice it :-P
15:14:39 <CraigC> Eric, it is erupting now
15:14:41 <Kitt> that is the only thing on the cam right now
15:14:43 <LindaG> Eric, you're late
15:14:56 <🎅🏻SANTA> wb dave

15:15:57 <Kitt> Beehive
15:15:58 <Betty> lagged
15:16:00 <🎅🏻SANTA> literally no crowd at bh wth
15:16:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow, quick start
15:16:09 <Eric> Just don't bite too much or you will lose more than 20
15:16:14 <🎅🏻SANTA> guess they thought indy was some dumb geyser

15:16:47 <JarnoO🎄> SF, the crowd's at OF, waiting for the next eruption
15:16:52 <BrianG> Still lagging
15:16:59 <🎅🏻SANTA> JarnoO🎄, shame! shame!
15:17:24 <🎅🏻SANTA> the people at OF can see it tho
15:17:24 <Kitt> ok, bee, swing to the left
15:17:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF is more popular than BH
15:17:28 <🎅🏻SANTA> but not as cool
15:17:31 <Dave from B™> I sanitize all touch spots on machines before and after I use them
15:17:33 <Eric> I have already seen Pump! today, this is just a nice bonus.
15:17:43 <CraigC> Eric, LMAO
15:17:55 <Eric> No respect!

15:20:55 <KorbenC🎅> BrianG, so oyur jsut seeing it start? really?
15:21:01 <Kitt> wow Brian, I thought my lag time was long
15:21:08 <BrianG> Yep
15:21:18 <Kitt> Korben needs spell check
15:21:21 <BrianG> Usually I’m more like a minute or so but this is on my phone
15:21:39 <Eric> Wow...not even a Pump! Chaser, this camop hates PUMP!
15:21:46 <KorbenC🎅> Kitt, I jsut got done with school and made ZERO spelling mistakes, now I have to make up for that ;)
15:21:53 <JarnoO🎄> wow... When a wind gust is so strong your eardrums start doing funny things
15:22:05 <Kitt> jsut is spelled just
15:22:29 <Dave from B™> Eric, do you need to be put in timeout?
15:22:35 <Kitt> thanks for text
15:22:56 <KorbenC🎅> I know its just that I just have to not just spell it that way because Linda just renewed my Linda disease membership just now :)
15:23:14 <CraigC> it's
15:23:17 <Forestbewithyou> I think you need some punctuation there
15:23:29 <🎅🏻SANTA> korben do I need a renewal?
15:23:35 <Forestbewithyou> I can't understand what that statement says above
15:23:52 <🎅🏻SANTA> "it's" forest, it's not that hard to understand
15:23:53 <KorbenC🎅> I just am trying to use the word just alot Forest, just because Kitt said just isnt spelled jsut :)
15:23:57 <🎅🏻SANTA> he clearly said its
15:24:03 <🎅🏻SANTA> :lol:
15:26:08 <JarnoO🎄> Short Beehive today. Indicator: lead=16m30s, total=18m57s; Beehive: 4m36s
15:26:27 <Eric> Timeout? I :heart: Pump!
15:26:39 <CraigC> sometimes I feel like I am in Romper Room
15:26:40 <JarnoO🎄> Beehive start @ 1515:19
15:26:50 <🎅🏻SANTA> craig what happened to it's
15:27:00 <Dave from B™> SOMETIMES?
15:27:01 <Eric> Well to the Virtual BW :-P
15:27:10 <Eric> ahhh, now that is a good name for this place!
15:27:25 <Eric> VBW
15:27:28 <🎅🏻SANTA> when does the employee with the grabby arm come around
15:28:53 <Dave from B™> I'd sure like to know who keeps removing the letters from my keyboard...I'm up to 8 now
15:29:13 <Dave from B™> But, I'm learning to type now since keys are blank:)
15:29:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lobster ate them
15:30:26 <Dave from B™> You should the cool swordfish we have put up in our market. Hopefully, Taylor will post some pics on FB soon
15:30:32 <ynpvisitor35> Aurum!
15:30:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh
15:30:50 <Betty> bah
15:31:05 <Forestbewithyou> drat
15:31:07 <ynpvisitor35> damn prime directive
15:31:44 <🎅🏻SANTA> we should move aurum next to OF so we never miss it
15:31:57 <ynpvisitor19> :thumbsup:
15:32:28 <ynpvisitor35> well at least we have an interval
15:34:22 <Dave from B™> When do we see data logger info at Norris released each day?
15:34:47 <ynpvisitor35> just got it back yesterday
15:34:59 <JarnoO🎄> I don't expect new data until about 1700
15:35:39 <JarnoO🎄> used to be a late night upload, then an early morning one and now it might be a mid-afternoon upload
15:35:49 <ynpvisitor35> Grotto ie since we moved
15:36:29 <ynpvisitor35> expect BrianR will have the start latter. He doesn't get a good signal down basin usually
15:37:03 <ynpvisitor35> I think th e upload time has to do with when they are able to restore it after the signal is lost
15:37:39 <Forestbewithyou> bye everyone for now
15:37:50 <JarnoO🎄> cya Forest
15:37:51 <KorbenC🎅> I guess I was still marked away :)
15:37:52 <🎅🏻SANTA> wb kortben
15:37:54 <🎅🏻SANTA> cya forest
15:37:59 <KorbenC🎅> Mike saw Aurum 1528ns
15:39:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> SB is splashy
15:39:16 <JarnoO🎄> likely a long OF interval ahead. Long at 4m44s
15:39:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> we dont need the upload to know that
15:39:42 <Dave from B™> GS, who are you cheering for now?
15:40:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> sles and Vegans in fial
15:40:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> you and Kevin can persuade me which team to support
15:40:49 <Dave from B™> The Veegans are on a roll right now
15:41:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> More lucky though
15:42:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> problem with Vegans is their games are too late
15:42:14 <Dave from B™> I'm more apt to predict Boston LV at the present time
15:45:23 <Dave from B™> GS, not sure you heard but Becca returns home from school tomorrow. A sad ending to her senior year at school. She will be finishing while living at home
15:46:03 <KorbenC🎅> Dave from B™, too bad, but at least shes safer at home.
15:46:29 <KorbenC🎅> Dave, what about Parker?
15:46:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They started school online here yesterday. System crashed.
15:46:58 <Dave from B™> Parker will be mostly online. He doesn't start for another week.
15:47:10 <Dave from B™> He is also working for me now as well
15:47:16 <KorbenC🎅> :thumbsup:
15:47:31 <KorbenC🎅> does that help lower your work load then>
15:47:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry to hear that Dave, but not unexpected. also puts her within range of SB :)
15:48:57 <Dave from B™> KC, it will eventually. Putting the pieces together to make this a viable business after I start slowing down. I do hope to almost be on the road as much as in my home within 5 years
15:49:31 <KorbenC🎅> nice
15:50:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> less smoke in the basin today
15:50:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> why wait that long Dave?
15:50:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> I want to become a nomad
15:51:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> but doesnt seem right just now
15:51:05 <JarnoO🎄> afternoon Greg
15:51:11 <KorbenC🎅> Hi Greg
15:51:42 <albee> Merry Christmas everyone
15:52:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah yes, it is Christmas Day
15:53:13 <Dave from B™> Yep. Are you waiting to retire because of COVID, Graham?
15:54:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, and to get other things straightened out. next year ....
15:54:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I thought I would be all over. I am just happy out in my depot thrashing wood.
15:54:53 <Dave from B™> Kevin, are you still making pens?
15:55:26 <Dave from B™> Yep, my wife is helping the district out this year because of COVID, then she will slow down when 2020-21 school year ends
15:55:51 <Dave from B™> But, then Becca will most likely be working for the district
15:56:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> i had a target finishing up a task at work, but now the schedule is slipping ... so I may quit earlier ... i am not waiting longer
15:56:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. Got a big backlog of models and stuff to do too. My Son-in-Law built me a computer for the Depot so I will be running the cam from there in few weeks.
15:57:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> then you can sell the house?
15:57:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I should be ordering the rails for my ride on train in a month or so.
15:58:20 <albee> Train models?
15:58:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They will bury me here. NOT going to move again.
15:58:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes.
15:59:02 <🎅🏻SANTA> what gauge
15:59:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released
15:59:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> N
15:59:10 <albee> kool beans, I have a 15x18 foot area, when I retire, that will be my train room
15:59:18 <🎅🏻SANTA> ride on?
15:59:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I also have G and will be doing a 7 1/2" gauge ride on.
15:59:54 <albee> nice
15:59:55 <🎅🏻SANTA> very nice
16:00:08 <🎅🏻SANTA> I think there is a 7 1/4" park in my city somewhere
16:00:53 <KorbenC🎅> Kevin, I had a good chance to test out your pens today, they both worked like a charm!
16:00:57 <🎅🏻SANTA> my family is thinking of putting one in by a cabin in montana since the main areas of the property are very spread out
16:01:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mine will be this size:
16:01:36 <🎅🏻SANTA> live steam would be fun
16:01:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be able to use it to take lumber to the depot and chicken feed to the coop.
16:02:02 <🎅🏻SANTA> D
16:02:05 <🎅🏻SANTA> :D
16:02:18 <JarnoO🎄> automation a-la Kevin :)
16:02:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably won't do live steam unless I can find one built.
16:02:47 <🎅🏻SANTA> you can find them built online
16:02:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do plan on making a handcart to tire the Grandkids out on.
16:03:25 <🎅🏻SANTA> nice :)
16:04:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it would be fun to have a miniature version of Dan's Eureka.
16:04:43 <🎅🏻SANTA> would be really cool
16:04:58 <ynpvisitor35> OOT
16:05:08 <ynpvisitor35> just 1 O
16:05:13 <🎅🏻SANTA> old old tardy
16:05:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Don't know if I mentioned it but The Shootist was the Eureka's and John Wayne's last movie
16:05:59 <Eric> You need a cam on your train with a dumper Kevin...fill the dumper in the shop and then drive it over to the coop to dump :-P
16:06:27 <Eric> Put in electric gates in the coop so they open/close when the train approaches/leaves :-P
16:06:37 <Eric> Coolest train ever :-D
16:07:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be doing a crossing in he driveway using a Raspberry Pi to run wig wags.
16:08:17 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how much land do you have?
16:08:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At this house the lot is 120' x 135'
16:09:25 <Dave from B™> Are you building a tunnel to go under the house?
16:09:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> will it link into the strip monorail?
16:09:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have at least 15' on each side of the house.
16:10:09 <Dave from B™> hahahaha Graham
16:10:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No, this one should work properly Graham.
16:10:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha
16:13:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is some nut wanting to o a subway on the strip. He is NUTS. I had to relocate utility lines for the I-15/Flamingo interchange. We literally had to use explosives to dig the trenches.
16:14:11 <albee> You are on that job?
16:14:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes.
16:15:43 <Dave from B™> What is wrong with the monorail system?
16:16:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Doesn't really go where it needs to. Keeps breaking.
16:17:02 <Eric> There is already a subway on the strip....the boring company already dug it.
16:17:13 <Eric> They want to push it even further.
16:17:43 <Dave from B™> Huh?
16:17:43 <Eric> It seems totally doable when you are 75-100ft below the surface.
16:17:59 <Eric> Yep, they are running teslas in it right now
16:18:09 <Dave from B™> Eric, we are NOT talking about the sandwich chain!:D
16:19:01 <Eric>
16:19:10 <Dave from B™> You would think it would get too close to casino vaults
16:19:36 <Eric> haha...that tunnel is encased in some pretty thick concrete.
16:20:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They haven't hit the caliche beds yet.
16:23:33 <Dave from B™> Why not close LV Blvd and put in an above ground train in the same spot?
16:23:37 <Eric> They might have gone through them Kevin...but probably tried to put the tunnel between the beds
16:23:58 <Eric> above ground == accidents.
16:24:57 <Eric> I still think that manually driven cars will be made illegal in downtown las vegas at some point. Perfect area to test out fully autonomous vehicles without dumb humans making poor choices in driving.
16:25:15 <Eric> well, not downtown, but the strip area
16:25:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They could have done the monorail on LV Blvd and still had vehicle traffic.
16:25:43 <Eric> They already have live 5 different self driving vehicle companies running taxi service down there.
16:26:04 <Eric> and Amazon just bought the biggest one.
16:26:52 <Dave from B™> I can see it now...sell driving vehicles with Elvis driving:D
16:29:14 <Dave from B™> All kinds of celebrity possibilities
16:31:40 <Eric> Cool Thursday @ 4:19 PT spaceX is launching a falcon 9 that will land it's booster back at a pad on land. Those are cool to watch.
16:32:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Like a Ray Bradbury story
16:32:44 <Eric> BTW, flu shots are out...go get them!
16:32:59 <Eric> More important than ever to get your flu shot.
16:33:04 <Eric> Daisy
16:33:05 <Eric> .
16:33:05 <Eric> .
16:34:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Can a shhot my flu with a 9mm?
16:34:57 <Eric> It might hurt more
16:45:20 <Dave from B™> How about a beautiful evening SB this time around...about 1915?
17:01:14 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great week everyone!
17:02:17 <albee> Missed :lion: for OF window
17:02:19 <JarnoO🎄> cya Dave
17:02:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Knight
17:02:33 <albee> by Dave
17:02:45 <Dave from B™> Yes...Go knights tonight ( and Dodgers)
17:06:03 <KorbenC🎅> Im gonna go for a boat ride, no fishing tho
17:06:25 <CraigC> "I just wanted to give you all an update on my brother Kevin. He was in surgery for 10 hours, we were expecting 12. Surprisingly, they did not find cancer on his pancreas or spleen! So those were not removed! That’s an answer to prayer! The surgery went great with no issues."
17:08:01 <KorbenC🎅> YAY!!! Good for him, I have been thinking about him all day today :)
17:08:09 <albee> Praise Jesus, good news for Kevin, let the healing begin.
17:08:40 <KorbenC🎅> Craig, that just made my day 10 times better, I have been worrying since like noon :)
17:08:49 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
17:08:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :thumbsup:
17:12:37 <Eric> Oh man...great to hear Craig! Thought are with you and your family for speedy recovery.
17:12:47 <Eric> Thoughts
17:13:02 <Eric> Cancer Sucks!!!!
17:14:42 <CraigC> That was posted on his wife's FB feed from his brother
17:15:08 <CraigC> hope none of them get bothered for me pasting it here
17:16:52 <Eric> ohh, other Kevin!
17:17:19 <Kat> CraigC, prayers for your brother!
17:17:50 <Eric> Thoughts are still with you Craig...because I know you need them...but double thumbs up for KevinS!
17:18:43 <CraigC> Kat, it's not my brother. It was from KevinS' brother
17:19:37 <Eric> Thanks for the update Craig
17:19:43 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
17:22:56 <LindaG> CraigC, that is wonderful news, I woke up thinking about him today,
17:27:39 <CraigC> Steamboat broke its long-short-long-short trend
17:28:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> :(
17:28:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> dormant fot the next 50 years?
17:28:51 <CraigC> at least
17:28:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> hardly worth going any more
17:31:03 <ynpvisitor80> Time for the "It's gonna die soon" calls to start again.
17:31:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> where is Ryan when he is really needed
17:53:19 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello
18:23:09 <ynpvisitor35> time for
18:23:12 <ynpvisitor35> lion?
18:24:01 <JarnoO🎄> didn't go yet. Hadn't realized it's been 1h20m already
18:24:25 <ynpvisitor35> goes by fast. you have a prediction?
18:25:11 <ynpvisitor35> we didn't get a D unfortunately
18:25:27 <JarnoO🎄> 1821±10m it would been, since I don't know the duration
18:26:03 <ynpvisitor35> Hard to get gazers to "boother" with durations
18:26:09 <ynpvisitor35> bother
18:26:57 <JarnoO🎄> Daisy should also be soon, if not ie already
18:27:56 <ynpvisitor35> last Daisy I was 1 hr 53 m
18:28:52 <LindaG> Hi Mr. Camop
18:29:30 <JarnoO🎄> you could set it to wide view, both of them in frame :)
18:29:39 <albee> and OF window is starting.
18:29:51 <JarnoO🎄> drat
18:29:55 <ynpvisitor35> boo
18:32:25 <Forestbewithyou> Hi all
18:32:55 <JarnoO🎄> hi Forest
18:33:04 <Forestbewithyou> Hi
18:35:27 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello forest tree tree
18:36:32 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Santa SANTA Santa Fe108
18:36:55 <🎅🏻SANTA> lol :)
18:38:59 <Forestbewithyou> I need to restart my computer it seems so I will be right back
18:39:14 <🎅🏻SANTA> :thumbsup: ok
18:39:26 <🎅🏻SANTA> JarnoO🎄, another short?
18:39:55 <JarnoO🎄> doesn't look like it'll be a short
18:40:11 <🎅🏻SANTA> yeah, looks like OF is content just puttering low
18:42:41 <JarnoO🎄> Castle just in time :)
18:42:46 <JarnoO🎄> missed Daisy though
18:43:03 <🎅🏻SANTA> :) , :(
18:43:25 <JarnoO🎄> hi kc
18:43:44 <🎄Forestbewit> There we go
18:43:54 <🎅🏻SANTA> hello kc, wb forest
18:45:07 <🎅🏻SANTA> I wonder if we'll see OF runoff head over soon
18:45:37 <kcmule> hello all and castle
18:46:04 <JarnoO🎄> expect next OF between 1h15m and 1h25m. 3m06s
18:46:14 <albee> :thumbsup:
18:46:16 <🎅🏻SANTA> :thumbsup:
18:46:42 <JarnoO🎄> which means the window will open @ 1951
18:52:06 <🎅🏻SANTA> when did sprnkler
18:58:11 <JarnoO🎄> Castle should be close to going to steam
18:58:30 <JarnoO🎄> there it is
19:04:02 <🎄Forestbewit> I was just looking at my profile on gt. Does anyone know what the "choose selected geysers" button under the comment editor option do?
19:04:38 <JarnoO🎄> you can set your favorite geysers and have them displayed in the sidepanel on the main page
19:05:10 <🎄Forestbewit> neat. Thanks Jarno
19:09:45 <🎄Forestbewit> I just realized that I never entered my vixen times.. I should do that
19:14:22 <JarnoO🎄> Rocket
19:14:36 <🎄Forestbewit> Nice!
19:18:54 <ynpvisitor81> Sahtafe108 mobile
19:19:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> ops
19:19:56 <SantaFe108 mobi> JarnoO🎄, can you select the same geyser multiple times so I can create the great wall of sprinkler
19:20:12 <JarnoO🎄> not sure, but I don't think so
19:20:12 <🎄Forestbewit> no
19:20:33 <🎄Forestbewit> It checks the first time and then unchecks the second time
19:22:11 <SantaFe108 mobi> vixen is one of my favorites at norris
19:25:06 <SantaFe108 mobi> JarnoO🎄, are all rockets major? I've never seen anyone enter a minor
19:25:22 <🎄Forestbewit> A minor is the preplay it does with grotto
19:25:27 <🎄Forestbewit> so just splashing
19:25:36 <🎄Forestbewit> similar to steamboat minors. No one logs them
19:26:01 <🎄Forestbewit> I believe that is how TGOY describes the minors if I remember correctly
19:26:32 <JarnoO🎄> they're all majors by definition (though you'll see many without the "maj" flag). My guess is that a Rocket minor is one where it doesn't erupt (or, said differently, the splashing it does during Grotto's eruption)
19:27:32 <SantaFe108 mobi> oh ok
19:27:42 <JarnoO🎄> it's kind-of both are equally good or bad
19:28:01 <JarnoO🎄> up to you to decide how to log them (but do it consistently)
19:28:39 <🎄Forestbewit> whoops
19:28:42 <SantaFe108 mobi> :thumbsup:
19:28:52 <🎄Forestbewit> that was a close one
19:32:17 <SantaFe108 mobi> what happened
19:32:33 <🎄Forestbewit> I pulled a you
19:32:42 <🎄Forestbewit> I accidentally logged a vixen as today
19:32:45 <🎄Forestbewit> and not on the 19th
19:32:56 <🎄Forestbewit> so I had to quickly change it
19:33:41 <SantaFe108 mobi> good thung vixen doesn't have predictions
19:33:50 <🎄Forestbewit> no kidding
19:34:10 <JarnoO🎄> predictions would be very dependent on the duration of the previous eruption
19:34:53 <🎄Forestbewit> Yup
19:35:06 <🎄Forestbewit> I am putting in all the durations and everything
19:35:07 <🎄Forestbewit> lol
19:35:24 <SantaFe108 mobi> maybe I should do that
19:35:44 <JarnoO🎄> though in most cases you would actually be fine with adding 4½ minutes to the Vixen end time and you've got a prediction
19:35:45 <SantaFe108 mobi> I have a vixen entry from like the very beginning of my account that has no info other then timr
19:36:33 <🎄Forestbewit> well thats probably all but I am going a bit overboard with the time first water was seen time it started duration
19:38:48 <🎄Forestbewit> If I caught vixen as ie should I put the duration of which I observed it to end in the field for duration or as a comment
19:40:00 <JarnoO🎄> you can enter the duration as, for example, >4m32s
19:40:14 <🎄Forestbewit> Ok
19:42:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> ok I fixed the old eruptiob

20:53:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it does
20:54:01 <ynpvisitor21> I’m going with yes
20:54:08 <🎅🏻SANTA> I vote yes
20:54:24 <ynpvisitor21> Too late in the day for road activity
20:54:41 <ynpvisitor21> Where is Korben?
20:54:52 <🎅🏻SANTA> left at 20:24
20:54:56 <ynpvisitor21> He’s the guy with the tools
20:55:08 <ynpvisitor21> He’s still signed in
20:55:28 <🎅🏻SANTA> I think he just leaves the tab open
20:55:48 <ynpvisitor21> :thumbsup:
20:56:09 <🎅🏻SANTA> def looks like SB imo
20:56:14 <ynpvisitor21> Well I’m guessing we’ll get an in basin post in an hour or so
20:56:21 <🎅🏻SANTA> yeah
20:56:56 <ynpvisitor21> Wonder what happened to museum seismo that it didn’t pick it up?
20:57:19 <🎅🏻SANTA> very od
20:57:22 <🎅🏻SANTA> d ^
20:57:38 <ynpvisitor21> Looks like 2026
20:57:56 <ynpvisitor21> Right after Korben’s departure
20:58:11 <🎅🏻SANTA> dang that sucks :(
20:58:40 <ynpvisitor21> Most gazers were probably still on site, still light out
20:59:01 <🎅🏻SANTA> just gotta wait till one of them gets to canyon/west

21:03:35 <🎅🏻SANTA> thanks albee have a merry sbmas
21:04:38 <KorbenC🎅> 7I am back
21:04:47 <KorbenC🎅> Happy SB day
21:04:47 <🎅🏻SANTA> wb
21:04:50 <🎅🏻SANTA> korben look at ynr
21:04:55 <KorbenC🎅> I know
21:04:57 <🎅🏻SANTA> boom boom
21:04:59 <🎅🏻SANTA> :D
21:05:06 <KorbenC🎅> YNM seismograph shows spectrogram not waveform
21:05:34 <KorbenC🎅> very not-noticable though
21:07:15 <KorbenC🎅> I just entered another E entry with more specifics Joe
21:11:03 <KorbenC🎅> ynpvisitor21, you were looking for me, yes, thats SB all right. Really nice signal on spectrogram. Nada on YNM
21:18:03 <ynpvisitor113> Tantalus is running pretty low, so the runoff spike should be clear as day when it comes.
21:42:37 <ynpvisitor111> Tara says NO STEAMBOAT!
21:42:50 <ynpvisitor111> That YNR trace is wild
21:43:27 <ynpvisitor111> Very odd it could mimic SB that closely
22:01:02 <ynpvisitor101> We had that one hail storm that got pretty close as well although this one looks more like SB
22:03:03 <ynpvisitor49> No Tantalus spike
22:03:06 <ynpvisitor35> web cammer watchers should stop posting things they can't be sure of, especially without a question mark. People are there. Have some patience
22:03:26 <ynpvisitor101> It should have had a question mark
22:03:38 <ynpvisitor35> YNM is reliable. Use it
22:04:47 <ynpvisitor49> Not sure about YNM yet agree about patience for in basin report
22:07:22 <ynpvisitor101> I've seen bad YNM as well -- the rules of GT are simple if you believe it post it but if you can't be sure put a question mark on it
22:07:54 <ynpvisitor35> No false readings from YNM during the active phase.
22:40:26 <ynpvisitor51> I see Tara posted a note of No Steamboat as of 2045
23:24:11 <ynpvisitor21> nice fluffy
