07:22:04 <LindaGp⚡> Someone standing there in anticipation
07:24:34 <LindaGp⚡> Morning michael
07:24:53 <LindaGp⚡> Turban?
07:24:55 <Michael> Hi LindaGp⚡.
07:25:06 <LindaGp⚡> Think so
07:25:46 <Forestbewithyou> Linda what is that thing steaming to the left of Spas?
07:26:00 <Forestbewithyou> and to the left of OT steam
07:27:05 <Michael> I see steam from "twilight" pool [in front of boardwalk] and from Crystal Spring [near Old Tardy] mostly.
07:27:50 <LindaGp⚡> And bulger
07:28:08 <Forestbewithyou> I think it may be spas runoff
07:28:56 <Forestbewithyou> actually it may be twilight spring
07:31:45 <LindaGp⚡> N.A. ie
07:31:49 <LindaGp⚡> no
07:31:51 <LindaGp⚡> BA
07:34:37 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Churn :)
07:34:39 <LindaGp⚡> Sigh everything looks like it erupting
07:37:38 <Abyss Pool> nice sunrise
07:38:03 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
07:38:30 <LindaGp⚡> Here comes the sun...
07:39:26 <LindaGp⚡> That's convenient, OF time
07:40:20 <Michael> Let's see if we can get some sun on the eruption column.
07:45:29 <LindaGp⚡> OF
07:46:38 <Dave from B™> Michael, you have a day off today?
07:48:39 <Michael> I'm on parental leave until the end of the month, and mostly don't have to respond to work email.
07:48:47 <Michael> Also I have no idea what day it is anymore.
07:49:16 <Michael> How was you trip to the coast?
07:49:23 <Michael> your
07:51:08 <Dave from B™> It was good...nice to get away from hectic everyday life
07:51:18 <Dave from B™> Holw is the little one doing?
07:51:45 <Tilt’s Baby F> No SB temp updates this morning?
07:53:21 <LindaGp⚡> Be right back
07:53:42 <Michael> He's been healthy and mostly happy. No sign of a regular sleeping or feeding pattern yet (at 1 month).
07:54:19 <Michael> I've been logged into chat, but distracted, an awful lot lately.
07:54:29 <LindaGp⚡> back
07:54:54 <Dave from B™> Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you will be distracted the rest of your life:)
07:55:14 <Dave from B™> Especially if you have a couple more:)
07:56:13 <Eric> Morning all
07:56:36 <Eric> Congrats on the little one Michael! Didn't know you had a new baby.
07:56:38 <Michael> Not sure we can handle the stress of coming up with a name again. :)
07:57:09 <Eric> UNNG-Boy-1
07:57:10 <JarnoO> morning all
07:57:22 <Eric> Hi Jarno
07:57:49 <Dave from B™> Michael, did you buy a baby name book?
07:57:57 <Michael> Eric, We were hoping for a Hebgen Lake anniversary present but missed by a few days. Going to be harder to remember that way.
07:58:33 <Eric> haha...a day that shook your world :-D
07:58:47 <Dave from B™> haha
07:58:55 <Dave from B™> Moring, Eric
07:58:59 <Dave from B™> n*
07:59:07 <Eric> You would have to name your kid Hebgen
07:59:13 <Eric> Hi Dave :-D
08:00:14 <Michael> We we determined to name him in honor of dear departed parents and grandparents. Got tricky because they gave us a lot of dated names to work with.
08:00:42 <LindaGp⚡> Doggie
08:00:54 <Eric> ahh, we did the same and totally understand
08:00:56 <Dave from B™> So, her name is Ethel?
08:01:13 <LindaGp⚡> Anemones
08:01:15 <Eric> We went classic English with Elizabeth Anne
08:03:03 <JarnoO> Aurm
08:03:04 <LindaGp⚡> Aurum
08:03:04 <LindaGp⚡> .
08:03:05 <LindaGp⚡> .
08:03:10 <JarnoO> near end
08:03:13 <LindaGp⚡> .oops go e
08:03:16 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the heads up
08:03:27 <LindaGp⚡> Life is cruel
08:03:54 <Rice> Eric, Mehitable is a family name for me, I refused to name my kids that!!
08:04:11 <Michael> It's a boy. Named Charles (Charlie) after my Dad. Middle name is _not_ Ralph, Milton, or Irving but borrows letters from each.
08:04:29 <Eric> name Rice :-D
08:04:46 <Dave from B™> Rice, that sounds like a verb:)
08:04:48 <Eric> Charles is a very stately name
08:05:15 <Dave from B™> Love Charles
08:05:37 <Rice> Two Great Grandmothers were named that, but I am glad to let that name die with history.
08:05:53 <Eric> So many people try to shorten my daughters name and she has always been adamant about it being Elizabeth, not Beth, not Lizi, not ....
08:05:55 <Michael> Rice, :)
08:06:15 <Eric> Not sure Rice...that is one you don't forget!
08:06:32 <Eric> you could be Meh for short :-D
08:06:37 <Eric> which is awesome
08:06:43 <Rice> Eric, my oldest in Elizabeth also, no Nicknames for her either, she doesn't like it.
08:06:45 <Dave from B™> Eric, I know Rebecca has gone back and forth with name shortening
08:07:07 <Eric> Elizabeth gets mad when people try to do that.
08:07:09 <Rice> My oldest Son is Andrew, he hates being called Andy.
08:07:11 <Eric> to her
08:07:24 <LindaGp⚡> Marmot cave
08:09:10 <LindaGp⚡> Go marmot
08:09:18 <Michael> Everyone I know named Rebecca (not many) shortened it until about age 20, then stopped.
08:09:43 <LindaGp⚡> Marmot tail is erupting too
08:09:52 <JarnoO> UNNG above MC
08:10:35 <Rice> My family has a bad habit of naming their kids, and then calling them by their middle names. I have an Aunt Suzy, real Name Janet, Uncle Judd, Real Name Thomas, Uncle Dick, real name Herbert
08:10:38 <LindaGp⚡> Dep is not though
08:11:52 <Michael> It's a good way to screen out telemarketers who use the first name.
08:11:52 <Dave from B™> Rice, by the kids choice. That just means the parents picked the wrong first name!
08:12:16 <Dave from B™> Michael, by your standards then, Rebecca is normal
08:13:12 <Rice> Dave from B™, I dont believe it was the kids choice for any of them, parents called them that.
08:15:58 <Eric> You answer your phone Michael :-P
08:16:05 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Sf
08:16:07 <Forestbewithyou> SF*
08:16:15 <SantaFe108> hi Forest
08:16:24 <Eric> If I don't see a name attached to a phone call, it goes to voicemail and they might get a call back.
08:16:43 <LindaGp⚡> Eric, I do the same
08:16:46 <Eric> Only if they left a message with clear reason for me to call them.
08:16:48 <Forestbewithyou> ^
08:16:54 <Forestbewithyou> Same
08:16:59 <Dave from B™> Eric, I do the same and my wife gets mad almost every time
08:17:18 <LindaGp⚡> I have most people set to music
08:17:19 <Dave from B™> She HAS to know who is calling her
08:17:25 <Eric> Our home phone number is just a voicemailbox, you can't even answer it if you wanted to.
08:17:35 <Eric> doesn't ring in our house.
08:17:51 <Eric> we get an email that someone called :-P
08:18:05 <LindaGp⚡> Wow, fancy
08:18:05 <Dave from B™> What's a landline?:)
08:18:31 <Eric> Nice thing is we know if someone called our house, no matter where we are.
08:19:04 <Eric> Jarno, you might want to put how far above marmot...there are a couple above it.
08:20:40 <Ryan> Morning everyone
08:21:13 <Dave from B™> Morning Ryan
08:21:20 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Ryan
08:21:27 <SantaFe108> hi Ryan
08:21:43 <Michael> I sill hate ignoring the phone ringer, but it's necessary. Esoecially around this time every four years.
08:21:51 <Michael> Hi Ryan.
08:22:13 <Ryan> Jaw is stiff and it feels weird having threads in my mouth. Otherwise I am pretty much feeling fine 48hrs post procedure
08:22:56 <Dave from B™> I could wallpaper my whole house with the political garbage I've recieved in the last week.
08:23:34 <Michael> Is "procedure" a fancy name for running into a door headfirst? :)
08:24:01 <Ryan> Nah, more like having a pair of pliers wrench a molar from its socket.
08:24:04 <LindaGp⚡> 😯
08:24:44 <LindaGp⚡> Marmot ie
08:25:19 <Ryan> Par for the course day 1 was not great, day 2 was annoying. Day 3 is now fine. Which is good, I hate using those painkillers unless I absolutely have to
08:26:05 <Michael> I like the direction that's headed.
08:26:55 <Ryan> Me too, this is the third extraction I have had in my mouth and each one has been more gentle than the last.
08:28:03 <Kat> Good morning all!
08:28:23 <SantaFe108> hi Kat
08:28:29 <Michael> I remember the experience well enough. Was really impressed by nitrous oxide.
08:28:34 <LindaGp⚡> Kat, hi
08:28:35 <Michael> Hi Kat.
08:28:44 <Kat> Hi
08:28:55 <Eric> haha, we hardly get any political junk mail...I guess everyone knows how we are going to vote already :-D
08:29:02 <Ryan> This time was the first time they pre-numbed my mouth with that jelly.
08:29:05 <SantaFe108> wow nice brick of steam
08:29:30 <Kat> Just a quick check in - groceries today and then a doc appt! Fun fun fun NOT
08:29:41 <LindaGp⚡> Maybe daisy soon
08:29:55 <Eric> Can I send you my grocery list too Kat? :-P
08:30:31 <Kat> Absolutley NOT! Still love ya! Hahaha
08:30:44 <Kat> I already ordered - just picking up
08:30:53 <Michael> and can you swing by the cleaners for me on your way back? :)
08:31:20 <Kat> Y'all are pushing your luck here LOL
08:32:05 <Kat> How about you go get the MRI for me??
08:32:27 <Eric> eek, pass on that!
08:32:37 <Kat> :lol:
08:32:58 <LindaGp⚡> uh monarch just emerged
08:33:06 <Eric> Nice
08:33:08 <Dave from B™> MRI's are relaxing:)
08:33:10 <Michael> If it's left knee, maybe I can send you my images from last year.
08:33:19 <Eric> How many have you released so far this year Linda?
08:33:20 <Kat> Craig on his bike??
08:33:31 <Eric> Could have been Kat...wondered the same thing
08:33:42 <LindaGp⚡> Eric, around 30
08:33:44 <Kat> Michael, right shoulder - rotator cuff
08:34:06 <SantaFe108> hi Kevinm
08:34:09 <SantaFe108> L*
08:34:14 <Michael> Darn. Can't help with that yet.
08:34:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
08:34:28 <LindaGp⚡> Hi kevin and santefe
08:34:43 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
08:35:01 <Kat> OK - gotta run bbl
08:35:13 <SantaFe108> cya Kay
08:35:14 <SantaFe108> t*
08:35:23 <LindaGp⚡> Kat, bye
08:35:34 <Kat> :)
08:35:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
08:35:50 <Michael> bye Kat. see you later.
08:40:18 <Dave from B™> bye Krazy Kat
08:41:45 <Eric> Wow...thanks for contributing to the monarch population Linda! They are awesome.
08:42:12 <LindaGp⚡> Eric, ☺ they are a cool butterfly
08:42:21 <Eric> I was just reading about viruses in fresh water clams...decimating the population.
08:42:36 <Eric> Serious issues because the clams do so much water filtering for us.
08:42:37 <JarnoO> N rim
08:43:23 <Michael> Maybe import a few zebra mussels?
08:43:51 <Ryan> Thats some nice runoff this morning
08:43:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Boy that isn't joke in some places!
08:44:31 <Eric> yes, decimating native mussel populations is probably not a good solution.
08:44:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Surprisingly there are a lot of clams (and crawdads) in Lake Mead.
08:45:06 <Eric> I was amazed at how many fresh water clams where all over the US
08:45:25 <Eric> I had no idea how important they are in our eco system.
08:45:29 <Michael> Kevin L™ 🌵, I had no idea. Were they there before the lake?
08:45:40 <SantaFe108> hi Don
08:45:59 <Eric> Rivers in Tennessee!
08:46:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think they had some but before the lake the river would dry up during the summer. Now it has year round waterr.
08:47:16 <Dave from B™> And crawfish is present in many states...not just the south
08:48:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are a bunch in the pond areas of Rainbow Canyon.
08:48:21 <LindaGp⚡> sprinkler going big
08:48:37 <SantaFe108> probably only a few mins in
08:49:00 <SantaFe108> hi Korben
08:49:05 <KorbenC(phone)> Hi all from the top of my. Democrat
08:49:06 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
08:49:15 <Forestbewithyou> :)
08:49:16 <LindaGp⚡> KorbenC(phone), hi
08:49:16 <KorbenC(phone)> Hi SF, Forest
08:49:18 <Sam> Hi Korben
08:49:29 <KorbenC(phone)> I have the summit all to myself
08:49:30 <Michael> Elevation?
08:49:42 <Sam> Wish I was hiking :(
08:49:44 <KorbenC(phone)> 141 and something
08:50:03 <Michael> 3 significant figures is plenty. :)
08:50:39 <LindaGp⚡> Anemones are happy today
08:50:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You didn't bring a level and Philly Rod with you?
08:50:51 <KorbenC(phone)> Already done the other 14ers was up at top at sunrise
08:51:03 <Forestbewithyou> Awesome!
08:51:37 <KorbenC(phone)> Kevin L™ 🌵, lil
08:51:46 <LindaGp⚡> Back in a minute
08:51:55 <SantaFe108> bye Linda
08:53:48 <LindaGp⚡> Back
08:53:50 <Ryan> Giantess' runoff looks bleached
08:54:05 <Ryan> relative to yesterday
08:54:22 <JarnoO> N rim
08:54:30 <JarnoO> must've had some big boils overnights
08:54:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It had some great action yesterday
08:54:49 <LindaGp⚡> come on giantess
08:55:44 <Ryan> Looks halfway decent right now.
08:56:00 <Sam> Seismos are still down :(
08:56:13 <SantaFe108> static too :(
08:56:15 <Sam> Would be exciting to see Giantess today
08:56:39 <Sam> Wonder what happened
08:56:47 <LindaGp⚡> I want to check for daisy but don't want to leave giantess 👀
08:56:57 <Sam> Do it fast! Haha
08:57:06 <JarnoO> seismos are back up (well, for Swarm they are)
08:57:21 <Ryan> Which channel are you using, JO?
08:57:24 <Dave from B™> Way too many overachievers in here
08:57:47 <JarnoO> YFT, YNR and YNM's HHZ, HHE and HHN channels
08:58:03 <Katie> Darn it!
08:58:05 <LindaGp⚡> Cam frozen
08:58:05 <So-so-Sodium> If Phil Collins had been a chemist
08:58:06 <SantaFe108> hi Jimbo
08:58:07 <Katie> Oh, and hello
08:58:10 <Ryan> Which one for YFT?
08:58:13 <Sam> Where are the swarms, Jarno?
08:58:14 <So-so-Sodium> Hi
08:58:22 <JarnoO> all of them, Ryan
08:58:26 <LindaGp⚡> As In down
08:58:27 <Ryan> oh ok
08:58:39 <JarnoO> broadband channels, that is
08:58:46 <Forestbewithyou> RIP cam
08:59:02 <Eric> Cam back
08:59:12 <LindaGp⚡> Come back cam
08:59:15 <Eric> I assume webicorders will recover soon
08:59:24 <Michael> SWARM is the name of a software package for frequency analysis of seismic signals. (I think)
08:59:34 <JarnoO> yep
08:59:38 <Sam> Oh LOL
08:59:52 <Sam> I thought there was another EQ swarm going on
09:00:20 <LindaGp⚡> Pump!
09:00:47 <LindaGp⚡> Another boil
09:00:49 <Ryan> Lunch time. Enjoy Giantess
09:00:57 <JarnoO> cya Ryan. Good luck with eating
09:01:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is a Pump swarm going on?
09:01:28 <SantaFe108> cya Ryuan
09:01:36 <Michael> Yes, Kevin. That's exactly it! :)
09:01:52 <Eric> Thanks, we will Ryan!
09:02:14 <LindaGp⚡> it would be great if giantess would go while I'm zoomed in 😁
09:03:20 <JarnoO> we got it while on the Hill with the previous eruption with an incredible flooding of its mound. Would love to see that up close
09:03:39 <Sam> Lots of cars at the gate right now
09:03:56 <LindaGp⚡> JarnoO, yeah me too
09:04:29 <Mike J> My first, ever, official prediction. Giantess tomorrow. (And that has nothing to do with the fact I'm going to have to drop off in about 30 minutes.)
09:04:29 <LindaGp⚡> Lighting ia.perfect
09:05:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like someone is hopeful
09:06:32 <LindaGp⚡> Kevin L™ 🌵, been there for a while
09:07:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> May have a long wait.
09:08:09 <Mike J> Actually, that's a place where I like to spend time, particularly when it's quiet - watching the occasional boils, burps and steam. Great view of everything else, but fun watching Giantess
09:09:21 <LindaGp⚡> OF time
09:10:35 <LindaGp⚡> Lowell static isn't going to help 😥
09:10:41 <LindaGp⚡> *well
09:14:02 <LindaGp⚡> I suppose if giantess erupted these.people might turn and look
09:15:05 <Lori S> Jello all
09:15:09 <LindaGp⚡> Jello Lori jello
09:15:13 <Eric> Jello Lori
09:15:17 <JarnoO> morning Lori
09:15:28 <SantaFe108> hi Lori
09:15:43 <Eric> chocolate pudding was always my favorite too :-P
09:15:59 <LindaGp⚡> Yum
09:16:11 <Lori S> I like banas in strawberry jello :)
09:16:22 <LindaGp⚡>
09:16:23 <Eric> When we went to the market when I was little, mom would always let me pick out one flavor of jello pudding I wanted :-D
09:16:26 <Lori S> bananas
09:16:41 <LindaGp⚡> Cherry
09:16:51 <Eric> That sounds good too Lori, we didn't have that kind of fancy back then :-P
09:17:04 <Lori S> haha
09:17:32 <Eric> I remember Lime or Vanilla being a couple of the other flavors of pudding
09:17:58 <Lori S> lime pudding?
09:18:13 <LindaGp⚡> Lol lemon lime jello
09:18:32 <LindaGp⚡> OF

09:21:58 <Eric> I wish they had the technical expertise to track down the cam issue :-(
09:22:26 <Lori S> any news in why seismos are stopped at 1730 yesterday? 1730
09:22:50 <Lori S> on
09:23:37 <JarnoO> well... this webcam down thingy surely is going to help with getting durations. Not :P
09:23:38 <Lori S> sorry...1701
09:24:24 <Lori S> oh, is the old "webcan down" back?
09:24:58 <LindaGp⚡> Lori S, it was for a while this morning
09:25:16 <Lori S> i took time off cam to improve my typing. it did not work ;)
09:25:25 <LindaGp⚡> *down for a while

09:32:36 <Dave from B™> They must have hired the ranger back who likes to microwave popcorn
09:32:55 <Lori S> Dave from B™, lol
09:33:39 <Lori S> she is looking steamy
09:34:20 <LindaGp⚡> Sure is
09:34:32 <Lori S> giantess, not the popcorn ranger
09:34:37 <Eric> Roads are probably less crowded now could make it :-D
09:34:56 <Eric> I think So Dave :-D
09:35:56 <Lori S> i said good day to be at norris. i am frewuently wrong about sb si giantess will prob play :p
09:36:00 <Eric> Wish they had the budget to hire a crack team like Katie and her guys :-D
09:36:20 <Lori S> Eric, :thumbsup:
09:36:27 <Katie> Get the Cambium staff there.
09:36:51 <Eric> I wonder if SB is going into a 6.5/7.5 day cycle now
09:37:01 <Eric> If so, tomorrow is the day
09:37:12 <Eric> Nice Imp boil
09:38:54 <Dave from B™> You "guys" don't believe me. It is a trifecta day today.
09:39:19 <Lori S> Dave from B™, what is #3?
09:39:26 <Mike J> happy giantess watching everyone.
09:39:32 <LindaGp⚡> Anemones are working overtime
09:39:42 <LindaGp⚡> Mike J, thx
09:39:49 <Dave from B™> F&M
09:39:56 <Lori S> ahh
09:40:46 <Eric> Dave, are you eating your fish again?
09:40:50 <LindaGp⚡> Not yet 😁 it's a race
09:41:38 <Dave from B™> I'm selling it...please don't make me eat it:)
09:47:09 <JarnoO> NE rim
09:47:22 <Eric> I think we have a couple more days on Giantess
09:47:33 <Eric> Tomorrow for SB, Friday for Giantess
09:47:51 <Eric> Maybe Giant will go today?
09:50:50 <JarnoO> I would think that would require at least a few hot periods
09:53:29 <Dave from B™> I think Giantess of the magic 3 is least likely to go today
09:55:01 <Eric> At least One Jarno :-P
09:56:21 <Lori S> not going in the park much so i actually kinda miss Rusty :)
09:57:09 <Eric> Park seems to be getting less crowded by the day now
09:57:09 <Dave from B™> Lori S, when does your job end?
09:57:31 <Lori S> no idea
09:57:54 <Dave from B™> Sorry, I thought it was seasonal
09:58:07 <Lori S> mid oct on agreement but have been asked to stay fir winter
09:58:31 <Dave from B™> gotcha
09:58:32 <Lori S> least
09:59:04 <Dave from B™> I heard some places in the park are staying open later. That should cause chaos with people who don't know how to drive in snow
09:59:20 <Lori S> haha yep
09:59:58 <LindaGp⚡> well giantess has decided to wait for kevin
10:00:05 <Lori S> as long as The COVID hangs around, i am happy to remain on the night shift
10:00:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hear Perry Mason music
10:00:52 <Lori S> how is KevinS doing?
10:00:56 <LindaGp⚡> controls released
10:01:04 <Eric> Yes, night shift seems like the best low contact shift.
10:01:13 <LindaGp⚡> Lori S, he popped in and out a few days ago
10:01:30 <Eric> I was wondering the same Lori
10:01:37 <LindaGp⚡> last week said he was getting stronger but in pain
10:01:41 <Eric> I am sure that is a super slow recovery
10:02:13 <LindaGp⚡> I can't imagine
10:02:25 <Lori S> I still love that he got on for Giantess from icu
10:02:29 <Eric> Me ither Linda
10:02:31 <Eric> either
10:02:45 <Eric> Yep, that was awesome on the timing and him getting it!
10:02:53 <Eric> glad he had the energy
10:02:59 <Eric> Pump!
10:03:08 <LindaGp⚡> Lori S, he said he hoped.for it before surgery and then when he came out they handed him the phone with the text
10:03:31 <Lori S> LindaGp⚡, oh wow, cool
10:03:42 <LindaGp⚡> 😊
10:04:05 <LindaGp⚡> well I got run to store, they still haven't fixed heat, coming later
10:04:14 <LindaGp⚡> bbl
10:04:23 <Lori S> bye LindaGp⚡,
10:05:44 <Lori S> well, i am off to sleep
10:06:21 <Dave from B™> Nite, Lori
10:06:26 <Lori S> go trifecta :)
10:06:42 <Dave from B™> I hope I do better than 0%:)
10:07:08 <Lori S> :)
10:07:10 <Eric> Pump, Sprinkler & OF today for sure!
10:07:22 <Eric> already got 2 out of 3 that I know of :-D
10:07:35 <Eric> Night Lori
10:07:43 <Dave from B™> :P
10:07:57 <Lori S> bye all
10:10:57 <Craig M> woah
10:10:59 <Craig M> Good boil
10:11:14 <Craig M> That just upped my heart rate
10:12:19 <Craig M> Right in the center and everything
10:13:20 <Ryan> That was a very nice boil
10:13:38 <Craig M> warmed up the runoff channel too
10:14:17 <Craig M> rim boiling sill continuing
10:14:45 <Dave from B™> Man, I need a new set of eyes
10:15:00 <Ryan> I dont see any rim boiling.
10:15:15 <Ryan> There is another nice boil
10:15:22 <Ryan> Big boil
10:15:54 <Craig M> oh wow
10:16:02 <Craig M> I hate being delayed
10:16:42 <So-so-Sodium> I saw that
10:16:57 <Ryan> Again!
10:17:30 <Ryan> Come on!
10:17:34 <Craig M> More activity and larger boils than I've seen this entire interval
10:18:10 <Dave from B™> nice boil
10:18:20 <So-so-Sodium> Holy wow
10:18:21 <Craig M> Oh come on.
10:18:37 <So-so-Sodium> Captain America: "I can do this all day."
10:18:39 <Dave from B™> :)
10:18:43 <Craig M> Giantess you bickle fitch
10:18:54 <Dave from B™> You sound like Udo
10:19:32 <Dave from B™> I hope someone has made a radio call
10:19:34 <Ryan> Again!
10:20:10 <Ryan> I think it isd actually trying to erupt
10:20:31 <Dave from B™> Sit back down you fool!!!
10:20:31 <So-so-Sodium> Isd or isdn't?
10:20:42 <Ryan> isd!!
10:20:49 <Craig M> With the intervals between heart rate raising boils I'd say so too Ryan
10:21:24 <Ryan> SAome of those looked punchy
10:22:53 <Craig M> zzzzzzzzz
10:23:08 <So-so-Sodium> Professor: "It just requires one strong overflow to lower the overlying pressure in the subterranean hydrothermal structure sufficiently to trigger an explosive boiling at depth."
10:23:47 <Craig M> OnE sTrOnG oVeRfLoW
10:23:58 <Ynp654> If it was that simple. Giantess woild have erupted multiple times during the dormant cycle.
10:24:05 <Ryan> Again!
10:24:18 <So-so-Sodium> Has to be hot enough, though.
10:24:34 <Dave from B™> God I'm slow. I finally gor the Phil Collins reference, Jimbo
10:24:45 <So-so-Sodium> :thumbsup:
10:24:51 <Ynp654> It was plenty hot during the huge boils seen in 2013-2016.
10:25:29 <Ynp654> Something very different was going on at depth. So I'm curious what changed recently.
10:25:33 <So-so-Sodium> Professor: "Under the most carefully controlled conditions of temperature and pressure, the geyser will do as it damn well pleases."
10:26:02 <Ynp654> Now there's something with a markedom of truth.
10:26:47 <Ryan> I have this unfounded theory that an eruption of Giantess makes a water/energy vacuum. When the energy and water returns it can erupt again in a short period of time as the system is set just so. But if it fails then you lose that balance and it takes something serious to get it going again
10:27:09 <Ryan> There was another boiul as I wrote that.
10:27:51 <So-so-Sodium> The Harvard Law states: Under controlled conditions of light, temperature, humidity, and nutrition, the organism will do as it damn well pleases.
10:28:25 <Ryan> more light boiling
10:28:35 <Dave from B™> Who's watching F&M?
10:28:52 <Craig M> Ryan how does that explain the basically random interval length for giantess. If there was only extremely long or extremely short intervals than maybe, but there's intermediate as well.
10:28:53 <So-so-Sodium> So I'm not responsible for the original statement, only its hydrothermal bastardization.
10:30:55 <Ryan> I would presume the conditions are not either-or. It gradually goes from easily triggered to not-easily-triggered.
10:31:03 <Ryan> Another center pool boil
10:31:39 <Eric> I like it Jimbo
10:33:32 <Ryan> Still having center pool boils. I think if the wind stops long enough it may make a serious attempt.
10:33:45 <Ryan> Cause this is almost constant
10:35:16 <SantaFe108> incredible
10:36:01 <Craig M> that one was another good one
10:36:11 <Craig M> bursty almost
10:36:35 <SantaFe108> hope we get it up close if it does
10:36:41 <SantaFe108> decide to erupt
10:38:05 <So-so-Sodium> Over/under on Giantess commencing during OF window? (Gotta pay college tuition ...)
10:38:36 <Craig M> 100% chance
10:38:51 <Craig M> This geyser is a sadist
10:39:27 <SantaFe108> gtess knows static is down
10:39:30 <Eric> Which OF window :-P
10:39:37 <SantaFe108> thanks for adding me to text Ryab
10:39:40 <SantaFe108> Ryan*
10:39:59 <Eric> I forget what percentage of the day OF windows cover, but it's significant
10:40:12 <Ryan> Np, sorry for the delay.
10:40:28 <SantaFe108> its alright, ive been here for all the major stuff so far :)
10:41:48 <Ryan> Craig M it is even worse in person.
10:42:34 <Ryan> OF is cooperating
10:43:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Early side of the window
10:43:18 <Craig M> woah that was an expert camera pan
10:43:35 <D> Lucky
10:43:39 <So-so-Sodium> Nice takeoff!
10:45:06 <Eric> I love your name today Jimbo :-D
10:45:17 <Eric> Sorry you don't have numbers to play on anymore :-(
10:49:56 <So-so-Sodium> It's OK I just use a random number generator.
10:50:28 <So-so-Sodium> Just search "random number generator" on Google and it gives you one.
10:50:42 <So-so-Sodium> Adjustable number range, too
10:51:40 <Ryan> Castle Daisy SFT
10:51:59 <SantaFe108> beautiful
10:53:18 <SantaFe108> hi Forest
10:53:23 <SantaFe108> daisy castle duel
10:53:26 <Forestbewithyou> Hey SF
10:54:55 <JarnoO> Castle major
10:55:19 <SantaFe108> JarnoO, :thumbsup:
10:55:42 <SantaFe108> hi Betty
10:55:46 <Forestbewithyou> Hey Betty
10:55:48 <Betty> morning all, evening JarnoO
10:55:53 <SantaFe108> hi Jarno
10:56:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
10:56:10 <Betty> hi SantaFe108, Forestbewithyou, Kevin L™ 🌵
10:56:23 <JarnoO> I see Giantess really liked big boils during the time I was sleeping while watching a cab ride :P
10:56:27 <JarnoO> center pool
10:56:36 <JarnoO> bubble shower-like
10:59:50 <Eric> Pump!
11:02:18 <Ryan> Odd YFT trace
11:09:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Is YFT working for you?
11:10:27 <Eric> Not updated yet
11:10:49 <Eric> Jarno said data is updating, just not webicorders
11:11:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was wondering if Ryan was looking at something we couldn't see.
11:11:22 <Ryan> SWARM
11:11:34 <Craig M> S W A R M
11:11:44 <Eric> S.W.A.R.M.
11:11:47 <JarnoO> Ryan, you mean that YFT enjoys going off-scale?
11:11:53 <Ryan> S*W*A*R*M
11:12:05 <Betty> hi Eric, Ryan, Craig M
11:12:14 <SantaFe108> S W A R M
11:12:17 <Ryan> Just that weird bump
11:12:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zwerm?
11:12:42 <Ryan> S*W*A*R*M ('cause suicide is painless... it brings on many changes...)
11:13:02 <Eric> Does anyone have a link to SWARM I can get?
11:13:03 <Eric> Thanks
11:13:17 <Ryan> Google it, its a USGS page
11:13:22 <SantaFe108> Agents of S.W.A.R.M.
11:13:24 <Ryan> Gotta download it, and then run the java app
11:13:32 <Eric> Been meaning to bookmark it and see if I can get swarm analysis views here.
11:13:46 <Ryan> its a standalone java executable
11:14:13 <Ryan> just google "USGS SWARM" it will be one of the first couple options
11:14:33 <Dave from B™> Pretty soon I'm gonna have to go back to college to understand this chat room
11:14:38 <Eric>
11:14:57 <Eric> cool, source code is good :-D
11:15:05 <Ryan> that is cool.
11:15:06 <Eric> Pump!
11:15:56 <Eric> Should be easy to have it dump out a capture every 30 seconds or so
11:16:26 <Eric> Could do it for YFT & YNM
11:17:08 <Betty> same here, Dave from B™, I just need to go back to Gymnasium
11:17:35 <Eric> My legs and butt still hurt from Sunday and Tuesdays workouts :-P
11:17:44 <Eric> There is a Sunday geyser?
11:18:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was just going to say that people may think you are exercising Betty. :)
11:18:36 <JarnoO> N rim
11:18:42 <SantaFe108> looks like it is in porcelain basin
11:18:47 <SantaFe108> eric
11:18:48 <Craig M> In norris
11:19:12 <SantaFe108> by colloidal pool
11:19:28 <Betty> well, that´s how it is called here, Kevin :-)
11:19:43 <Eric> Yep, just flagged a note from MAB :-P
11:20:26 <Eric> Love looking at everything she has added about features up there! So much history in GT.
11:20:40 <Eric> If you start digging
11:25:44 <Dave from B™> Many people take notes and never share. MAB does a great job of getting info into history
11:26:17 <Ryan> SWARM is cool through orange glasses
11:26:25 <Ryan> the plots are jet black lol
11:26:31 <KorbenC(phone)> We are down the 14ers 😀
11:26:44 <KorbenC(phone)> Ryan, hey
11:27:16 <Eric> parachute?
11:28:21 <Eric> I am wondering what SWARM is doing to the data to make eruptions obvious? Wondering if there could be better geyser eruption specific analysis?
11:28:55 <Ryan> Its using a neural network called the human brain.
11:29:01 <Eric> There must be certain directional frequencies that indicate eruption of a feature.
11:29:08 <Ryan> But, to not be a smart ass for a second. I dont think it does anything.
11:29:22 <Ryan> I think we can interpret the specific waveform.
11:29:30 <Eric> Well, it's visualizing the data in a different way
11:29:46 <Eric> then the webicorder does
11:29:53 <Craig M> you *might* be able to create a python AI learning script
11:29:58 <JarnoO> Eric, you mean the spectrogram?
11:30:13 <Craig M> but the possibility of false positives and negatives is definitely there
11:30:24 <Eric> Don't think this requires AI or python :-D
11:30:37 <Eric> Yes, the spectrogram you guys are interpreting
11:30:53 <Craig M> i mean i would argue that not every eruption would look exactly the same on the spectrogram so you'd have to program in some variability
11:30:55 <Eric> I assume there are some characteristics that clearly define the eruption.
11:31:35 <Eric> Oh well, not a huge deal...I can bring the spectrograms forward and we can see what people do with them :-P
11:33:05 <Ryan> Spectrograms require a somewhat decent understanding of wave dynamics.
11:33:07 <Craig M> you'd have to overlay it with real eruption data first and then pick out if you can see anything meaningfully different
11:33:12 <Ryan> Otherwise its just colors.
11:33:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you see how they removed those cars from the wrecked autoracks Eric?
11:34:02 <Ryan> OIne thing that swarm does do though is allow individual channel viewing. For instance, YNM HHZ is the best option for SB, in the helicorders you get a combination of HHZ, HHE, and HHN
11:34:34 <Eric> No, not yet Kevin
11:34:54 <Ryan> I saw a pretty horrific car accident coming to work this morning. The exact situation I always feared being in myself.
11:35:01 <Eric> Yes, filtering is the key to all data analysis :-D
11:35:49 <Craig M> which is pretty difficult to do in a chaotic area such as yellowstone
11:35:55 <Eric> Getting rid of the noise and keeping the nuggets :-D
11:36:10 <Ryan> There is a long mountain to go down on Route 40. Tractor trailers have to stay in the right lane and drop to 10mph the whole way. There are several blind turns. I have always feared getting boxed into that lane and coming around the turn to find a basically stopped truck.
11:36:21 <Ryan> Saw a compact car under a tractor trailer this morning :(
11:36:37 <Eric> eek
11:36:52 <Eric> That happened to my sister in law in their forester...chopped the top right off!
11:37:12 <Eric> luckily she wasn't tall and got out with a few scrapes and bruises.
11:37:24 <Craig M> giantess has calmed down
11:37:33 <Ryan> I dont think anyone was lucky from this one. It was pretty gruesome.
11:37:36 <Eric> Yep...Hill Wave :_D
11:37:44 <Eric> eek, that sucks Ryan
11:38:28 <JarnoO> I guess it'll be a few hours before Giantess tries again. Going to a cold phase it appears
11:39:03 <Ryan> JO, I thought the 1018 boil was gonna start iot.
11:39:30 <Dave from B™> 10 mph seems really slow and dangerous
11:39:41 <Dave from B™> Almost should be a truck only lane
11:39:48 <Ryan> Its better than 55 and unable to stop.
11:40:13 <Ryan> But yes I agree. I personally think trucks shouldnt be allowed on 40 at all.
11:40:21 <Dave from B™> I-90 over Homestake has a 25mph speed limit for trucks
11:40:36 <Ryan> They routinely cause mile+ long backups behind them because they can't maintain 55 over all the hills.
11:42:15 <SantaFe108> hi ClickBaitBaby
11:42:39 <ClickBaitBaby> Hello SantaFe!
11:42:41 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I'm assuming the area is too narrow to add the occasional passing lane
11:42:42 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
11:42:46 <Forestbewithyou> Hey CBB
11:42:53 <ClickBaitBaby> What's doing, today?
11:42:55 <LindaG⚡> SantaFe108, hi
11:42:55 <JarnoO> Just watched it. That was a really strong boil. Though still too little SE rim involvement for my taste
11:43:00 <LindaG⚡> Hi all
11:43:06 <Betty> hi LindaG⚡
11:43:16 <LindaG⚡> Betty, hi!
11:43:22 <ClickBaitBaby> Hi All, Linda!
11:43:28 <Ryan> Dave, yeah too narrow. We have some passing zones but not many.
11:43:40 <LindaG⚡> ClickBaitBaby, hi
11:44:26 <Eric> I am waiting for the 30ft boil on Giantess :-P
11:45:19 <Eric> Friday maybe
11:45:19 <Ryan> Grand
11:45:32 <Ryan> .
11:45:33 <Ryan> .
11:45:34 <Ryan> .
11:45:35 <Ryan> .
11:45:42 <Eric> haha
11:45:51 <Ryan> im serious
11:45:57 <LindaG⚡> Lol
11:46:07 <Eric> I know...I just find lots of periods for grand funny.
11:46:16 <LindaG⚡> Kevin
11:46:18 <LindaG⚡> .
11:46:19 <LindaG⚡> .
11:46:22 <Ryan> wanted the cam op to move
11:46:26 <Eric> Linda
11:46:27 <Eric> .
11:46:28 <Eric> .
11:46:29 <Eric> .
11:46:30 <Ryan> I know sometimes I just get tunhed out by most everyone.
11:46:48 <LindaG⚡> .😊
11:46:48 <Ryan> So I save the periods for important stuff.
11:47:14 <LindaG⚡> If people have their fingers turned on
11:47:26 <LindaG⚡> Lol *dingers
11:47:51 <LindaG⚡> Mine doesnt ding most of the time
11:47:57 <Dave from B™> Anyone paying less than 2.09 for gas right now?
11:48:04 <Craig M> 1.89
11:48:08 <Eric> Who is driving?
11:48:13 <Ryan> 2.55 here I hate you all
11:48:19 <Eric> don't pay for gas if you don't drive!
11:48:22 <LindaG⚡> Mr. Cactus
11:48:24 <Betty> hahahaha
11:48:24 <Dave from B™> Some young guy from LV
11:48:24 <Ryan> 1.80 in WV though
11:48:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dings don't work for me. I was running from controls. Went to GT to check Aurum and saw Grand was ie.
11:48:48 <Dave from B™> I paid 2.79 on the coast. That's why I was wondering
11:49:00 <Eric> haha...Kevin is ding impervious!
11:49:13 <Eric> Our gas prices always suck Dave
11:49:30 <Eric> but only if you drive.
11:49:41 <ClickBaitBaby> It's $1.89 here atop the Southern end of the Cumberland Plateau in Monteagle, Tennessee.
11:49:49 <LindaG⚡> I think mine is near $2.00
11:49:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Some days I can hear them. This isn't one of those days.
11:50:08 <LindaG⚡> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😊
11:50:15 <SantaFe108> $3.20 where I live
11:50:22 <LindaG⚡> SantaFe108, wow
11:50:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I paid $2.43 Monday
11:50:28 <Forestbewithyou> Jeesh SF
11:50:29 <ClickBaitBaby> Ouch, SantaFe!
11:50:37 <Eric> You live in pretty country ClickBaitBaby!
11:50:46 <Eric> I love the Fall in that area.
11:51:00 <ClickBaitBaby> Thanks. I think so, too, Eric.
11:51:11 <Eric> Yes, I pay over $3/gallon also, often
11:51:19 <ClickBaitBaby> Fall is coming on fast.
11:51:38 <Eric> We have a friend who runs the Farmers market and many events in Chattanooga.
11:52:12 <LindaG⚡> I just looked about $ 2.30
11:53:11 <ClickBaitBaby> Nice, that, Eric. I don't go to Chattanooga often. I'm in the woods on the plateau rim looking out towards Sherwood, Alabama.
11:53:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I paid $2.17 in Idaho Falls going to the park. It was $3.29 at Island Park on the way.
11:53:23 <LindaG⚡> Lunch time
11:53:27 <Forestbewithyou> $2.10 here
11:54:00 <Eric> just checked gasbuddy $2.80/gallon around me
11:54:19 <Eric> West coast refineries price gouge!
11:54:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mostly taxes and regulations Eric.
11:55:03 <JarnoO> b1 done
11:55:13 <ClickBaitBaby> I was about to say the same thing, Kevin.
11:55:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Let's do 2
11:56:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Don't think it will happen.
11:56:50 <JarnoO> looks Q
11:56:57 <Dave from B™> Yep. I think WA fuel tax + Fed is over 75 cents
11:57:19 <Dave from B™> We are running out of time for the Trifecta today
11:57:20 <ClickBaitBaby> A gallon, Dave?
11:57:26 <Dave from B™> yes
11:57:48 <ClickBaitBaby> Ohmagawd ..
11:57:54 <Eric> Nope Kevin, definitely refinery screwage
11:58:02 <ClickBaitBaby> Highway robbery. Literally.
11:58:13 <Eric> $.15 difference between WV gas tax and Washingtons
11:58:32 <Eric> Gas in WV $1.80, gas in Washington $2.80
11:58:43 <ClickBaitBaby> I don't know what pur gas tax is ....
12:00:24 <Eric> Federal is 18.4 cents per gallon, Washington state is 49.4, Montana is 32.75
12:00:38 <Eric> So our tax in Washington is .17 cents higher than Montana
12:00:44 <Eric> meh
12:01:03 <Eric> Doesn't equate to the refinery hosery that happens.
12:01:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You are forgetting the taxes on it at the refinery.
12:01:39 <Eric> What tax is that Kevin?
12:01:54 <Ryan> I have lots of great memories in Chatty, Sherwood, and Scottboro
12:01:54 <ClickBaitBaby> As of 2019, our tax in 26.4
12:02:17 <ClickBaitBaby> Nice areas, Ryan.
12:02:23 <Ryan> Been too long since I made my way to Jackson and Marion Counties
12:02:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are several state taxes and fees passed on.
12:03:04 <SantaFe108> done with school
12:03:12 <ClickBaitBaby> I'd like to own land in Sherwood, but it would make travel to work longer.
12:03:22 <Ryan> Where do you work?
12:03:41 <Eric> Those are calculated into the fuel taxes I think Kevin...unless you have some data I haven't seen.
12:04:09 <Eric> We have had refinery issues on the West coast forever
12:04:38 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm self employed, I do private caregiving to the elderly and the odd brain trauma patient.
12:04:43 <Eric> oh well, I am not complaining :-D
12:04:49 <Ryan> Oh you live near Monteagle!
12:04:58 <Dave from B™> Take the light rail, Ericd
12:05:10 <Ryan> Well holy good God I have spent almost as much time in that area as I have in Yellowstone.
12:05:24 <Dave from B™> Off to get my ears lowered....enjoy the trifecta
12:05:26 <Ryan> It is as much home as anywhere else for me.
12:05:28 <ClickBaitBaby> Yep. I'm from Warren and Grundy Counties.
12:05:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have lots of businesses that have moved to Nevada to escape the heavy taxes and fees (and regulations) california puts on them.
12:05:43 <SantaFe108> cya Dave
12:06:05 <ClickBaitBaby> LoL. Ryan. It's home to me. I love this mountain.
12:06:17 <Ryan> Gah you're making me miss my other homes! I am a caver. I have spent an enormous amount of time in the area stretching from White County, down to Marion, over to Walker and Dade in Georgia, and then over to Madison in Alabama.
12:06:39 <JarnoO> your gas is expensive. Most common fuel here (Euro 95 E10) is $1.72 per liter, or $0.45 a gallon and that includes tax
12:06:50 <Ryan> The Cumberland Plateau is one of the finest cave making getups in the entire world.
12:06:50 <ClickBaitBaby> Good.come home!LoL! These caves are waiting!
12:06:56 <JarnoO> and static is working again
12:07:52 <Ryan> Have you visited any of the local, easy to access ones?
12:07:57 <ClickBaitBaby> I'd love to get into caving. An illness stopped me last time I got the chance.
12:08:17 <ClickBaitBaby> So, not yet, Ryan.
12:08:32 <Ryan> Ruby Falls is cool if therew is nothing else to do :p
12:09:05 <ClickBaitBaby> I have been there. And in Snail Shell yearsago.
12:09:06 <Ryan> Check out Cathedral Caverns, the SCCi, and if its the summer omnths go spend time in the evening at the Sauta Cave entrance and watch a couple hundred thousand bats fly out.
12:09:18 <Ryan> Good friends of mine are the Snail Shell managers
12:09:48 <ClickBaitBaby> That's cool to watch, I saw it on video, but not in person.
12:10:04 <Ryan> I saw it in person. Umbrellas reccomended. Bats make poop.
12:10:28 <ClickBaitBaby> LoL. Guano bomb, eh?
12:10:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You went backwards Jarno. There are 3.78541 liters to gallon. Equivalent price would be $6.51 a gallon.
12:11:19 <JarnoO> hm, math isn't my strongest point. Thanks Kevin
12:11:34 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm hoping to go down below the rim here above Lost Cove and dig under the rockhouses.
12:11:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Been there, done that!
12:12:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can still remember the heart attack I had seeing gas prices in Germany.
12:12:23 <ClickBaitBaby> I hunt for stone tools and fossils, and mushrooms.
12:13:15 <Ryan> Stone tools? You an archaeologist?
12:14:01 <Eric> I was glad my brother had fuel vouchers when we traveled in Germany!
12:14:05 <ClickBaitBaby> No, though it interests me. I'm more a user and limited maker of tools.
12:14:21 <Eric> OF
12:14:57 <Ryan> CBB, ah. I got to see some native sites in AL and TN, really flippin cool stuff
12:15:02 <ClickBaitBaby> I frequently find tools.
12:15:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You must work for Harbor Freight.
12:15:30 <ClickBaitBaby> But almost never points. It breaks my rock loving heart.
12:15:52 <Ryan> I have a few I want to get back to to photograph before they egt destroyed or vandialized.
12:16:06 <ClickBaitBaby> LoL. HarborFriet is awesome. I need a gift certificate and a shopping spree!
12:16:26 <Ryan> There was one I visisted in 2016 and planned to go back to. Never did, and a couple years ago someone vandalized the artwork in the cave. Brought me to tears.
12:16:38 <JarnoO> man off boardwalk
12:16:45 <JarnoO> now back on
12:16:49 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm sorry to hear that.
12:16:57 <JarnoO> I guess the SC fissures were too intriguing
12:17:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know some great spots with artwork in Nevada but I don't tell where they are at.
12:17:35 <ClickBaitBaby> Art work, Ryan? Was it ever photographed and catalogued somewhere?
12:17:56 <Ryan> Yes. For several reason I wont discolse the location.
12:18:14 <Ryan> Just that it was JAckson County, Alabama.
12:18:23 <Eric> Yes, in the internet age, stuff gets destroyed way too often!
12:18:30 <Eric> If it's made public
12:18:53 <Eric> or over loved.
12:18:58 <Eric> which destroys it too
12:18:59 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm very respectful in my personal pursuits. I don't destroy. And I don't go after things ruthlessly. My finds are gifts rather than robberies.
12:19:14 <Ryan> Yep. Several caves in that area are being destroyed by over visitation and wanton abuse. Breaks my heart.
12:19:52 <Eric> Yes, I am a member of a lot of hiking groups and people are super hesitant to share their favorite hikes due to this.
12:20:02 <Ryan> I am a proponent of closing several of the popular ones seasonally just for rehab efforts. Some of them need closed for a few years.
12:20:10 <SantaFe108> yes
12:20:18 <Eric> We have moved to limited access on a lot here
12:20:28 <ClickBaitBaby> Most of my finds are on the surface or half-buried in durt/mud. The latest is a congestion used as a grind stone.
12:20:32 <Ryan> There are few caves down in AL/TN/
12:20:52 <Ryan> GA that I have access to that most people don't. My visits there are infrequent, but they are treasured experiences.
12:21:10 <SantaFe108> I don't know any caves by me but there are a lot of gold and iron mines
12:21:31 <SantaFe108> theres an old mine close to me that gets regularily trashed by partying teenagers
12:21:32 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm unfamiliar with caving, Ryan, but would live to someday see cave art in TN.
12:21:55 <Ryan> The worst are the pit caves where people tie ropes off to trees. They don't protect the rigging trees and they end up dying.
12:22:24 <Ryan> At best you have a bunch of dead trees, at worst you have people hanging their lives on dead trees.
12:22:42 <ClickBaitBaby> I'm not pushing for info though. Just sayin I have an interest in caving that I'd like to indulge before I shuffle off this mortal coil.
12:23:29 <SantaFe108> there is the famous ghost town of Calico by me with silver/borax mines
12:23:57 <ClickBaitBaby> That sounds interesting, SF
12:24:17 <SantaFe108> guided tours only but it is a very very old mining town
12:25:05 <ClickBaitBaby> Concretion! I just noticed my phone changed in to congestion! Bwahaahaa!
12:25:19 <SantaFe108> rip
12:25:48 <SantaFe108> calico is very hard to miss if you're on the I-15, the giant letters on the side of mountain that say "CALICO" are very large
12:26:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BTW SantaFe, I found you another shortline:
12:26:17 <ClickBaitBaby> Ryan, who made the cave art and what does it look like?
12:26:19 <SantaFe108> beautiful Kevin
12:27:09 <ClickBaitBaby> Brb afp
12:27:51 <SantaFe108> alot of interesting mines around Joshua Tree NP
12:27:57 <SantaFe108> just outside of it iirc
12:28:26 <Ryan>
12:28:34 <Ryan>
12:28:44 <SantaFe108> wow
12:30:33 <Ryan> Yeah, a very good friend of mine has documented artwork for decades.
12:30:38 <Ryan> Those are his photos
12:30:54 <SantaFe108> ryan have you been to Arroyo Tapiado mud caves in socal
12:31:01 <Ryan> No
12:31:17 <SantaFe108> pretty interesting
12:31:47 <Ryan> I have been to some amazing ones in Arizona though
12:32:11 <SantaFe108> they are short but cool
12:32:12 <SantaFe108>
12:32:43 <SantaFe108>
12:33:25 <SantaFe108> one of the most fun geological places I have been to is Peak-a-Boo and Spooky slot canyons
12:34:12 <Ryan> I need to do some searching of the cave I am working in now. May be some artwork there
12:34:30 <SantaFe108> that would be a really nice discovery
12:35:20 <SantaFe108>
12:35:23 <SantaFe108> not my pic but its nice
12:36:14 <JarnoO> HK posted Giantess footage
12:36:23 <ClickBaitBaby> Ryan, those photos are incredible. They're in TN?
12:36:49 <Ryan> yesw
12:37:50 <ClickBaitBaby> Thank you for being to my attention things that are far from being literally under my feet. Those are a sacred places in my eye.
12:37:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is one of mine (picture was taken with a small point & shoot - not real good):
12:38:37 <ClickBaitBaby> Bringing...not being. I have Broken Screen Syndrome.
12:38:42 <Ryan> Where was that?
12:39:16 <Ryan> this is where we are currently working now. No artowork, but a mile of cave with stuff like this.
12:40:28 <ClickBaitBaby> Lord have mercy, Ryan. Making me utterly jealous here.
12:40:42 <Ryan> it has 9 individual ropes in it now.
12:41:13 <Ryan> The geology is super confusing and gets worse with each trip there lol
12:42:11 <ClickBaitBaby> LoL! Indeed, Ryan. I'm blown away and jealous. That's awe-inspiring.
12:42:56 <ClickBaitBaby> I'll have to start in baby caves.
12:43:44 <ClickBaitBaby> Kevin, where was your picture taken, roughly?
12:43:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rural Nevada
12:44:37 <ClickBaitBaby> Nice! Was it some kind of marker stone for a path or to a cave?
12:45:11 <ClickBaitBaby> Or a mix of signs to different things aling the paths.
12:45:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am not sure. I know there are others around but this is the only one the guy showed me.
12:45:59 <ClickBaitBaby> We're there heavily travelled paths there nearby?
12:46:05 <ClickBaitBaby> Were?
12:46:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No.
12:47:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They have some great ones in the Valley of Fire State Park near Vegas.
12:47:37 <ClickBaitBaby> Hereabouts the ancestors bent and shaped trees to mark the way to certain areas and things (water, access points to and from the rim of the plateau, caves, etc.
12:48:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
12:48:29 <ClickBaitBaby> I was just wondering if something similar was done I. Stone out your way.
12:48:36 <ClickBaitBaby> In stone.
12:49:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably did. The Piute Tribe had a strong presence in southern Nevada.
12:51:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This has some of the others from Valley of Fire:
12:53:02 <JarnoO> Lion wants to do stuff
12:53:36 <JarnoO> maybe note then
12:53:37 <JarnoO> not*
12:54:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We may have missed Daisy. Snuck up on me.
12:55:25 <Eric> Can't wait to hit Utah next year! Really want to do some hiking there.
12:55:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Some great spots.
12:57:14 <Eric> Yes, I just worry about heat...I don't like the sun very much :-D
12:57:41 <Eric> cold and sunny is ok
12:57:58 <Eric> Winter might be better for me.
13:00:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Zion is pretty toasty in the Summer but can be cold. Bryce is always cold.
13:01:14 <Eric> Bryce is cold in August?
13:01:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> An interesting historical hike can be done at the Gold Spike Monument.
13:01:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes Eric.
13:02:28 <Eric> oh wow...just reading...didn't realize it was that high in elevation
13:02:46 <Eric> still averages 83 in July, wouldn't say "cold" :-P but definitely not super hot.
13:03:05 <LindaGrapes> I was at Bryce beginning of Sept. It was pleasant, Zion was 110 at the same time
13:03:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wait until dark.
13:03:51 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™ 🌵, I am cold?
13:04:00 <Eric> looks like it drops about 25 degrees on average at 50 degrees. While not hot, not too bad.
13:04:20 <Eric> I can sleep in that comfortably.
13:04:32 <Eric> I can sleep down to about 25 degrees comfortably in my tent
13:04:35 <Betty> Bryce is not too bad
13:05:01 <Eric> I need to start wearing my long johns if it gets colder :-P
13:05:34 <LindaGrapes> I do f remember night time buf I was inside
13:06:04 <LindaGrapes> I didnt go to Zion that time, I don't do 110 on vacation
13:06:30 <Eric> I hear that...110 is too hot for me :-D
13:06:53 <LindaGrapes> I regret not seeing Zion but....
13:07:47 <LindaGrapes> Kevin L™ 🌵, what is it about Zion that makes it so much hotter
13:08:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have done Zion during those temps. I remember coming off a trail, putting my wallet & shoes in the car, and jumping into the river.
13:08:28 <Betty> LindaGrapes, it is called heat
13:08:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lower elevation. Rocks retain the heat.
13:08:57 <LindaGrapes> Betty, but why was Bryce so much cooler, not that far apart
13:08:59 <JarnoO> Daisy 1300
13:09:11 <LindaGrapes> Kevin L™ 🌵, 👍
13:10:06 <LindaGrapes> Betty, 😋 hi
13:10:23 <Betty> hi Linda
13:13:44 <Eric> Bryce is at like 9000ft!
13:13:47 <SantaFe108 mobi> glad to see some Bryce love
13:13:59 <SantaFe108 mobi> my namesake
13:14:05 <Eric> Bryce is one cold hearted snake :-P
13:14:35 <Betty> Bryce is my favourite after Yellowstone
13:14:46 <Eric> be back for some BH after lunch :-D
13:15:03 <Betty> enjoy your tater tots
13:15:22 <Not yet> Eric you can take every marked trail in Bryce in like 3 days
13:16:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It would take me 3 days to get up from the bottom
13:16:47 <So-so-Sodium> I know, when I went to Bryce in summer it was over 100 in southern Utah, but 70s at Bryce.
13:21:23 <LindaGrapes> Eric, I saw a real nice hiking video on YouTube for Bryce. Looks lovely to hike.
13:22:35 <Betty> it is!
13:23:31 <LindaGrapes> I think the top is 10k feet. I remember being surprised about that.
13:23:47 <Eric> Under the Rim Trail looks cool - 22 miles and about 5k vertical!
13:23:52 <Eric> Good day hike
13:24:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Day?
13:24:41 <So-so-Sodium> Bryce does have some vertical relief, of course. I was "challenged" to do the Navajo Loop Trail, but could only do half, as the other half was closed for maintenance.
13:24:41 <LindaGrapes> 😊
13:24:52 <Betty> lol, Kevin
13:25:07 <Eric> Looks like the meat of Bryce is near the lodge in the center
13:25:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So you stayed at the bottom?
13:25:22 <So-so-Sodium> Yes, that's true.
13:25:34 <So-so-Sodium> No, had to come up the same way I went down.
13:25:38 <LindaGrapes> When imwas there I had a boot in, seriously sprained my ankle, so there was no hiking
13:25:53 <Betty> we did combined Peek-a-Boo and Queens Garden several times
13:26:05 <LindaGrapes> But it looked like the trails could be steep
13:26:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I love the Navajo loop trail but last time I took it, it almost killed me.
13:26:18 <Dave from B™> Can't wait to hike at Bryce
13:26:19 <JarnoO> Aurum
13:26:20 <JarnoO> .
13:26:21 <JarnoO> .
13:26:21 <JarnoO> .
13:26:25 <Eric> woohoo
13:26:26 <LindaGrapes> Yay
13:26:27 <So-so-Sodium> I did Queens Garden too. My crude step counter in my phone said I did 83 flights of stairs.
13:26:40 <Eric> Navajo and Queens Garden Loop:
13:26:54 <LindaGrapes> Two aurums for me today
13:26:56 <So-so-Sodium> Thank you lag!
13:27:06 <LindaGrapes> Same here
13:27:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No matter how much you click on this screen the cam won't move.
13:27:26 <Eric> Thanks for the zoooom :-D
13:27:28 <So-so-Sodium> chuckling - cuz I've tried that
13:27:36 <Eric> Orange vests out on the BW
13:27:44 <Eric> wonder if they just checked Giantess Logger
13:27:54 <Eric> Anyone heard where that data is going?
13:28:28 <Eric> I would love to see that data after the full eruption of Giantess
13:29:20 <So-so-Sodium> Great description on that trail site: "an amazing array of hoodoos that you can walk through in amazement". Plus, it kinda resembles a-maze.
13:30:03 <JarnoO> short Aurum at 1m09s
13:31:14 <Eric> haha...nice Jimbo
13:32:28 <Dave from B™> Eric, here ya go
13:32:36 <Dave from B™>
13:32:38 <Eric> I would probably combine peekaboo, navajo and queens into a single hike
13:32:59 <SantaFe108 mobi> Peekaboo & Spooky are spectacular
13:33:23 <SantaFe108 mobi> wait peekaboo bryce trail or peekaboo canyon
13:33:57 <Betty> peekaboo bryce
13:34:02 <SantaFe108 mobi> I
13:34:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> Oh*
13:34:40 <Betty> that won´t challenge you, Eric ;-)
13:36:16 <Dave from B™> Betty, Eric took me to Edgefield but I didn't have the tater tots:)
13:36:50 <Betty> What? No tater tots?
13:37:00 <Eric> Yep, he failed :-P
13:37:06 <Betty> hahaha
13:37:11 <Eric> But he drank the beer, so it was made up for :-D
13:37:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They need fry sauce anyway.
13:37:24 <Betty> nice
13:37:28 <Eric> He got the daylight tour
13:37:46 <Eric> Rim 2 Rim in a day ready?
13:37:49 <Betty> Thomas wants to go there again
13:38:05 <Betty> me too :-D
13:38:07 <Eric> Come back, they have so many more cool places too
13:38:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Arby's has good potato cakes if you put Arby's sauce on them.
13:38:24 <Eric> Stay a few days and we can go hiking and find good beer/food :-D
13:38:26 <Betty> we loved that place
13:38:43 <Eric> Take you for some awesome buffalo wings :-P
13:38:56 <Ryan> Shorter*****!
13:38:56 <Eric> Have you ever had those?
13:39:14 <Betty> I bet Thomas would love to do something at Mt. St.Helens
13:39:23 <Ryan> omg I am so sorry. Thats a credential for something at work that I now have to chaNGE.
13:39:24 <Eric> Yes...Helens for sure!
13:39:29 <Dave from B™> Rim to Rim in a day.....I would need to train for 6 months but I would be crazy enough to try it
13:39:33 <Eric> haha
13:39:42 <Eric> you wouldn't if you didn't tell us that Ryan :-P
13:39:47 <Ryan> I didnt realize my cursor was still on this monitor until I hit enter and wondered why the login screeen was still there
13:40:27 <Eric> Nobody in the world would have made that connection but you
13:40:32 <Ryan> Sigh is it friday yet? lol
13:40:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Took me 2 days when I was 14 Dave and I was sore for days. BUT it was awesome.
13:40:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 3rd Saturday Ryan.
13:41:01 <Eric> 2 days is good too, but you have to haul all your gear :-P
13:41:15 <Eric> Might as well spend 3 or 4 down there if you are going to do that!
13:41:42 <Eric> Doing it in a day, you carry water, filter, shade and food.
13:41:58 <Eric> and emergency beacon :-P
13:42:12 <Eric> I don't go anywhere anymore without my satellite beacon
13:42:14 <LindaGrapes> Now you have to walk further to get to phanto ra h. Silver bridge was found to be structurally unsound
13:42:26 <LindaGrapes> *ranch
13:43:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That thing was terrifying when I was 14. We stayed at Indian Gardens.
13:43:14 <Dave from B™> I've never walked more than 13.5 miles in a day and I've never hiked the last 9.9 uphill on a 23 mile hike
13:43:48 <Dave from B™> I would probaably need about 100# of water
13:43:55 <LindaGrapes> Kevin L™ 🌵, I dont thi I I could walk over a bridge you can see through
13:44:14 <LindaGrapes> *think
13:46:55 <LindaGrapes> The miles can haul the gear
13:47:40 <LindaGrapes> O g I cant type, *mules
13:48:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We know Davespeak
13:48:37 <Dave from B™> 2 days would probably be better
13:48:49 <Dave from B™> That's still 2 long days
13:50:45 <Not yet> So much more interesting to GC and So UT country than just trying to get from point to the next . Enough to keep you exploring for a lifetime or more
13:51:34 <Dave from B™> Fopr me, this would be part of a 21 day trip covering Grand Canyon, Zion and a few other places
13:51:53 <Dave from B™> I also want to due Angel's Landing if Eric will join me
13:51:58 <Dave from B™> do*
13:52:18 <DeletedTeakettl> if you get up at 5am you can have the summit all to yourself, even at peak season c:
13:54:20 <DeletedTeakettl> Unfortunately Angels Landing was the only thing I got to do at Zion. Family did a whirlwind tour of Bryce, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Zion, and Arches a few years back... basically discovering all the things I wanted to come back and spend more time doing!
13:54:26 <Not yet> After exploring that country for years and with many approaches, I heartily recommend less places and more time in one.
13:55:38 <Dave from B™> not yet, that is a typical trip for my wife and I. We would rather spend 3-5 days at a place
13:55:47 <Not yet> Everywhere you go there just makes you want list longer
13:56:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They Never made a set of Pampers big enough for me to try Angel's Landing.
13:58:29 <DeletedTeakettl> ...I must admit I was bad and semi-intentionally freaked people out as I went down. It was a steady stream and I had more room going down so yielded the right of way constantly. I never felt precarious while moving aside, but other people certainly thought I was.
13:58:33 <Ryan> I have closed SAWRM for the day
13:58:41 <Ryan> SWARM. :P
13:59:37 <Not yet> That thing could go any moment now
14:00:17 <Ryan> Which one???
14:00:30 <Ryan> I was watching two of them haha
14:00:52 <DeletedTeakettl> Has YFT been fixed?
14:01:00 <Ryan> only on SWARM
14:01:36 <Ryan> Toodles everyone
14:01:47 <JarnoO> cya Ryan
14:02:01 <Betty> bye Ryan
14:02:10 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Ryan
14:02:27 <Ryan> hopefully giantess cooperates with you
14:02:33 <Ryan> Those were some nice boils earlier
14:02:35 <DeletedTeakettl> Toodles.
14:02:45 <DeletedTeakettl> Okay, lunch break over, actually back to work now...
14:02:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
14:04:50 <JarnoO> cya DT
14:11:25 <Dave from B™> Am I the only one who thinks Deleted Teakettle means the person is out of tea?
14:12:39 <DeletedTeakettl> I have plenty of tea but not kettle
14:14:43 <Dave from B™> For some reason, I was thinking the opposite:)
14:14:46 <Betty> almost forgot to come back :-p
14:15:39 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Betty
14:16:21 <Dave from B™> Betty, you are NOT that old!:)
14:17:04 <Betty> in two weeks I´m older :-)
14:17:41 <Forestbewithyou> Aren't we all older ever moment that passes???
14:17:47 <Betty> wanted to spend that in US...sigh
14:17:54 <Dave from B™> Yes, you are.......2 weeks older:)
14:17:55 <Forestbewithyou> :( Betty
14:18:22 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Betty. Are you going somewhere else instead?
14:19:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not all of us. Once you assume room temperature you don't get older.
14:20:08 <Betty> I thought about Switzerland. But it seems they get a good amount of snow the next week, but unfortunately they won´t open ski season earlier :-p
14:20:42 <Betty> but hiking may not work then
14:21:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now would be a good time for Bertchesgaden
14:22:14 <Betty> weather does not look promising
14:23:47 <Dave from B™> Betty, have you ever been to Brugge?
14:24:00 <Betty> nope
14:24:27 <Dave from B™> There ya go:)
14:24:32 <KorbenC> Back home, cleaned up and my hunger has been satisfied :)
14:24:41 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
14:24:47 <Betty> hi Korben
14:24:48 <Forestbewithyou> how was it?
14:24:53 <KorbenC> Hi Forest, Betty, Dave.
14:24:56 <KorbenC> It was good :)
14:25:30 <Dave from B™> I do like the Cochem Moselle River area of Germany
14:26:01 <Betty> yes, pretty up there
14:27:41 <Dave from B™> We stayed at a B&B in Cochem where they made their on wine. It was delicious
14:27:46 <Dave from B™> own*
14:28:07 <Betty> there´s a small cold water geyser near Cochem, only 45 min away
14:29:37 <Betty>
14:34:12 <Betty> LC
14:34:37 <KorbenC> Hi SF
14:34:44 <Dave from B™> Thanks Betty
14:34:47 <Forestbewithyou> hey SF again :)
14:34:58 <SantaFe108 mobi> Hi korben & forest
14:45:48 <Eric> No Giantess yet? What happened to the it's going to blow any moment?
14:46:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave broke it
14:46:24 <Dave from B™> I predicted it for today, Eric. That means no go for today:)
14:46:54 <LindaGrapes> I did too, double whammy
14:47:10 <Eric> Only if you start driving towards it Dave :-P
14:47:32 <Eric> I agree with Deleted Teakettle on 5am for Angels Landing
14:47:42 <Eric> Sunrise would be cool I bet
14:48:11 <Dave from B™> Most people sleep in on vacation:)
14:49:31 <Eric> This looks like a good Bryce loop too -
14:49:57 <Eric> really? Apparently you and my wife vacation the same :-P
14:50:19 <Eric> I get up early and go see things....take a nap in the afternoons when tourists are out and about :-P
14:50:50 <Eric> 1pm - 5pm is nap time
14:51:29 <Dave from B™> Actually, on our last trip, I got up at 645 and worked until 10. My wife slept in and we were both ready for the beach at 10
14:51:55 <Dave from B™> 1-5 is for beer or wine on a patio
14:52:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is another fun place:
14:54:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> no splodge on the seismo yet?
14:54:21 <Dave from B™> Nice. Remember the drive from St George to Mesquite before the Interstae was built?
14:54:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh!
14:54:50 <Dave from B™> I know. It was a long trip
14:54:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> sounds like earl retirement Dave
14:55:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Eric
14:57:29 <Eric> haha....If I didn't have a daughter just starting college!
14:57:56 <Betty> hi Graham
14:57:58 <Eric> daisy
14:58:12 <Eric> under 2h
14:58:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> 12Mar is the date for me ... then i can get all confused about what day of theweek it is and not care
14:58:27 <Dave from B™> I'm excited for you, Graham
14:58:43 <Eric> Nice! congrats on getting a date
14:58:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Week?
14:58:56 <Eric> Do you leave for YNP on 3/13?
14:59:06 <Betty> cool Graham
14:59:06 <DeletedTeakettl> DAZZY
14:59:21 <Eric> aka Fazzy
14:59:33 <Eric> or faisy
14:59:43 <Dave from B™> Why retire on Taylor's birthday?
14:59:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha Eric ... when the park is closed ... to be first at the gate?
15:00:09 <Eric> Yep, setup camp and be ready :-D
15:00:23 <Eric> Can't you bike in at that time?
15:00:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> I do have 11 weeks of cabin reservations tho...
15:01:01 <Eric> ohhh, not until the beginning of april
15:01:07 <Eric> Wow...nice!
15:01:16 <Dave from B™> ouch...time for an RV, Graham
15:01:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Can you imagine Graham trying to outrun a bison on a bicycle?
15:01:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> i need Craigs electric bike on high speed
15:02:01 <Dave from B™> My 9 night trip cost $28.77/nite
15:02:17 <Eric> Bike camping in Yellowstone in November is kind of cool
15:02:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> if you dont figure out the RV cost Dave
15:02:57 <Eric> 11 weeks in YNP is probably still cheaper than one trip to New Zealand :-P
15:03:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am not sure about that Eric .... depeds on how many weeks in NZ
15:04:03 <Dave from B™> Graham, it was a gift:D
15:04:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats still on for Oct/Nov next year if they will let the plagued americans in
15:04:07 <Eric> 2-3k for a plane ticket, plus lodging and food.
15:04:20 <Eric> plus if you have 2 people
15:04:33 <Dave from B™> Our plane ticket was 1150
15:04:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> flught was about 1300 when i looked
15:04:45 <Eric> wow...that is cheap for NZ
15:05:03 <Eric> Did they make you ride on top Dave?
15:05:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> mone was from east coast to NZ, Aus, then back
15:05:44 <Betty> time for sleep. Have a great evening all
15:05:49 <Eric> Guess they are cheaper now...when I looked a few years back it was going to be double that...guess when fuel was so high
15:05:52 <Eric> Night Betty
15:05:53 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Betty
15:06:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> night Betty
15:06:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:06:55 <Dave from B™> If you can pick the day of the week, you can find some good deals
15:10:58 <EmilyW> howdy
15:11:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Emily, what mountain is on this weekends list?
15:13:00 <EmilyW> Pikes
15:13:11 <EmilyW> How were your steamboats?
15:13:20 <EmilyW> That must be awesome to get s many daytime steamboats
15:15:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> it worked out well for me, first from Decker whih was a goal ad second from Upper which was a new spot for me
15:15:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> it truely feels like its right overhead from Upper
15:16:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> will do Decker again if the wind is right, it was a bit steamy this time but the spikes went out the frame, so need to use the real camera, not just the phone
15:16:24 <Dave from B™> Have a good evening everyone
15:16:31 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Dave
15:16:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry that Ryan/Hope/Tara/Jeff C missed it by 1 day tho
15:16:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> bye Dave, enjoy the beer and wine
15:16:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night Dave
15:17:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was pretty empty for the second one, just a couple of chairs on Upper and half of Middle deck was empty
15:17:35 <EmilyW> tthat mst have been nice
15:18:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Giantess was a nice bonus .... made me huff and puff up from Beauty
15:18:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> still mde it while it was thumping
15:20:50 <EmilyW> hopefully what Giantess continues but I have no idea at this point
15:23:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> so with 6 days at SB and 2 at Giantess, plus 2 as tour guide, there wasnt much time
15:23:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least I did get in the 100 Jet day
15:23:24 <EmilyW> still a good trip
15:23:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> and glad I saw NG twice, one of my hobby geysers
15:24:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bronze was good to me ... although quit when most gazers showed up
15:24:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was another bonus
15:24:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, you mean bonus it quit when Craig showed up?

15:40:12 <LindaGrapes> Nice start
15:40:20 <Kat> I thank Bee and you!
15:40:21 <Eric> I call it Just in Time gazing :-D
15:40:24 <KorbenC> BOW!
15:40:26 <Eric> rainbow
15:40:37 <Kat> Wow - nice rainbow
15:40:50 <SantaFe108 mobi> Good job Beehive
15:40:52 <Kat> ;)
15:41:03 <LindaGrapes> Pretty
15:41:32 <Eric> Wow...strong rainbow
15:41:53 <Kat> Sweeeet
15:42:01 <Eric> I need that on my facebook background :-D
15:42:14 <SantaFe108 mobi> All around spectacular bee
15:42:15 <Kat> Me too
15:42:33 <KorbenC> spectacular
15:42:34 <Eric> I love the ripples through the steam
15:42:36 <JarnoO> intense rainbow
15:42:50 <KorbenC> not quite as good as the rainbow halo on my climb this morning, but this is good for Bee, like really good.
15:43:40 <Eric> You know that effect has a name Coop?
15:43:51 <LindaGrapes> My husband wants something, told him I'll do it as soon as bee stops 😄
15:44:05 <Kat> hahahaha
15:44:12 <SantaFe108 mobi> Loo
15:44:16 <SantaFe108 mobi> Lol*
15:44:20 <Eric> I say that to my wife all the time...she wonders why BH goes like 5 or 6 times a day :-P
15:44:22 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Linda
15:44:29 <Kat> Nice Bee - Thanks!
15:44:31 <LindaGrapes> Eric, lol
15:44:33 <Forestbewithyou> LOL Eric
15:44:41 <Kat> Eric, LOL
15:45:11 <SantaFe108 mobi> "Sorry, Can't right now, Giantboat..hive... is erupting!
15:45:15 <SantaFe108 mobi> "
15:47:41 <Eric> usually when you are on a mountain and see those they are called a Brocken spectre
15:48:17 <KorbenC> Eric, interesting
15:48:31 <Eric> or Mountain spectre
15:48:52 <KorbenC> never had one so strong before :) it was great becuase there was snow on the ground reflecting it with 50mph winds while I am sitting behind the summit rock in 0 mph winds :)
15:49:05 <Eric> They are circular type rainbows that are cause by weird refractions.
15:49:13 <DeletedTeakettl> I swear, I only get sound notifications when there's NOT a geyser erupting x.x
15:49:32 <Eric> Yep, most of the times I have seen them have been in snow conditions.
15:49:44 <Eric> haha
15:49:57 <Eric> You can always watch the replay DT...exactly what we saw.
15:50:15 <KorbenC> Hey DT
15:50:19 <Eric> Just without our enlightening chatter!
15:50:45 <DeletedTeakettl> hullo
15:50:54 <DeletedTeakettl> but but but but near real time :c
15:52:53 <JarnoO> Indicator: lead= >5m17s, total= >7m45s; Beehive: 4m39s
15:54:55 <JarnoO> Beehive
15:55:15 <JarnoO> Beehive's duration suggests Indicator led by 12-15 minutes
15:55:18 <JarnoO> darn enter key
15:55:21 <LindaGrapes> I posted a screenprint of it on Facebook
15:55:30 <Eric> Nice
15:55:46 <KorbenC> great, my school just sent out a quarantine message, apparently someone in one of my classes has tested positive, meaning everyone in their class is under quarantine until October 2nd.
15:56:04 <KorbenC> Luckly, since I am in their class, but I am doing at home learning I dont have to quarantine
15:56:06 <LindaGrapes> KorbenC, 😕
15:59:55 <Forestbewithyou> I am with Linda :( :( :(
16:00:04 <Eric> Mountains are better educators anyone...go climb another one :-P
16:00:11 <Eric> anyone = anyway
16:00:13 <Forestbewithyou> lol
16:00:18 <KorbenC> lol
16:00:25 <KorbenC> we might go do another one this weekend :)
16:00:38 <KorbenC> Try to cram a few more in this week because 4 isnt enough :P
16:00:39 <Eric> Nice...what was your EG and distance?
16:00:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released
16:00:56 <KorbenC> today?
16:01:03 <LindaGrapes> Kevin L™ 🌵, thx for driving
16:01:20 <Eric> Yes
16:01:25 <KorbenC> Right around 4K EG today, and about 8 miles.
16:01:33 <Eric> Nice...great hike!
16:01:42 <KorbenC> that it was :)
16:01:51 <KorbenC> always nice to have the top of a 14er all to yourself for a while.
16:01:57 <Eric> Wish I had more time to climb :-(
16:02:10 <Eric> Yep, sitting on a mountain is a special thing
16:02:18 <KorbenC> That it is
16:02:48 <KorbenC> Sitting up and leaning on a rock while on chat with 50mph winds 5ft above your head all alone for 30 minutes is wonderful.
16:02:59 <KorbenC> and having that be at 14149ft is a bonus.
16:03:55 <LindaGrapes> So giantess is going to wait till tomorrow
16:04:25 <Eric> Friday Linda
16:04:33 <LindaGrapes> Ah
16:04:38 <Eric> SB tomorrow
16:04:52 <KorbenC> Eric, heres the route we did,
16:06:03 <Eric>
16:06:55 <KorbenC> also add in a bit extra EG because we wlaked down the back ridge of Democrat a little ways, found a route that looks to be class 3 up it.
16:06:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> the good thing about being on the cam is its easier to go from Grotto to Lion in one click
16:08:03 <KorbenC>
16:08:17 <KorbenC> you can tell in the photo where I am sitting on the rock that I am tired :P I just look dead
16:11:52 <Eric> Nice coop
16:13:06 <Eric> Those mountains are tall, but they just don't inspire me like the cascades :-(
16:13:58 <KorbenC> You should come to CO
16:14:13 <KorbenC> Go up a class 3 ridge, maybe Kelso :)
16:14:17 <Eric> Some day...lots of other destinations first :-D
16:15:25 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy Lion and Giantessn't
16:15:37 <LindaGrapes> JarnoO, bye
16:15:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think summer came back. It is 107° right now.
16:15:57 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno
16:16:01 <Eric> Night Jarno...
16:16:06 <Eric>
16:16:11 <KorbenC> You could go do Capitol, hahaha, no I am not trying to kill you :P
16:16:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night Jarno
16:16:35 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin, how goes it?
16:17:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not bad. Was just hoping to do some outside stuff but I guess I will do inside stuff for a while.
16:17:45 <LindaGrapes> Kevin L™ 🌵, 🌡🔥
16:17:52 <Eric> Meh, I have done harder hikes than Capital :-D
16:18:06 <KorbenC> Capital in the winter would be bad :P
16:19:06 <KorbenC> Eric, That is probably one the hardest 14ers in CO, also factor in that youve never been on top of a 14er (maybe not??) and it would be interesting
16:19:27 <DeletedTeakettl> [clutches sea level]
16:19:56 <KorbenC> DeletedTeakettle (work), lol
16:20:42 <KorbenC> Eric, I dont actually know if you have ever done a 14er?
16:21:53 <Eric> But I wouldn't do the top :-P
16:22:11 <DeletedTeakettl> I like mountains. But I am very bad at elevation gain while hiking.
16:22:23 <Eric> I wouldn't get anywhere near a class 5 Coop :-D
16:22:35 <Eric> Just takes practice DT :-D
16:22:50 <Eric> Constant practice as you get older like me too
16:23:20 <Eric> I hadn't hiked/climbed in 3 weeks due to air quality and went out Sunday...about killed me :-P
16:25:37 <KorbenC> how about the class four route emily did?
16:29:59 <KorbenC> Eric, heres a trail that you really need to do, :d :d
16:30:43 <Eric> Lots of NtoS trails I need to do! PCT, CDT, AT
16:30:52 <Eric> The one in Utah
16:31:20 <Eric> Colorado and the CDT doesn't really inspire like other places though
16:31:57 <KorbenC> Uploading a picture of the halo rainbow thingy from my phone.
16:32:17 <Eric> broken spectre
16:32:45 <Eric> Sometimes you don't even see them with your naked eye and they show up in photos
16:33:52 <KorbenC> This one was 10 time better with the naked eye.
16:35:01 <Mario> Hi everyone
16:35:08 <Mario> no SB yet?
16:35:31 <KorbenC> Mario, hi and nope
16:35:45 <Eric> Mario!
16:38:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> I broke it
16:39:09 <Eric> Not due until tomorrow
16:39:32 <Eric> very early morning
16:40:29 <Eric> would be nice if we could see seismo though :-(
16:40:46 <Mario> yes for sure
16:40:56 <KorbenC> Eric, have you downloaded SWARM yet? seems like you would like it
16:41:06 <Eric> No, haven't had time
16:41:17 <Eric> work, family, hiking :-P
16:41:25 <Eric> ohh, and board gaming
16:41:33 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
16:42:09 <Eric> Played Among Us for the first time last night...kind of fun filler game
16:42:30 <Eric> Good for large groups of online people
16:48:30 <Mario> Have you ever tried Wingspan? it's currently rated like the 20th best game of all time on BoardGameGeek...
16:49:16 <Eric> Yep, it's a good game. Very pretty :-D definitely not the 20th best game of all time :-P
16:49:44 <Eric> I own it and the european bird expansion.
16:50:10 <Eric> Maybe in the top 300
16:50:55 <Mario> i think we should make one called "Steam and Water" that features the geysers of Yellowstone
16:51:08 <Eric> But those lists are always super subjective, because games play so differently depending on the group dynamics and mood.
16:51:20 <Eric> Already is a geyser game of yellowstone geysers :-D
16:51:27 <Eric> You can print and play it yourself
16:51:53 <Mario> with Russian, Icelandic, New Zealand, and Chilean expansions... :lol:
16:51:54 <Eric>
16:52:16 <Eric> I printed it off a few years ago, never got around to playing it though :-(
16:52:30 <Mario> Hey cool, i've never seen this before
16:52:42 <Eric> Mark Nemeth is the creator
17:02:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
17:10:58 <Mario> the Grand crowd is getting smaller as the days go by
17:16:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> ot
17:18:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
17:21:34 <Mario> Giantess, if you are keeping to two week intervals, NOW is the time...
17:22:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> and we are at the SB 1 week point
17:25:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow have to go back to 2001 to find a year when Bronze Spring was logged on more than one day
17:25:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least logged on GT
17:27:29 <anytimenow> Has Bronze been seen much the last few years? Seems like it is way less active than in the 90s?
17:29:36 <Eric> I shot an email to fish and Utah seismo guys...hoping they have a timeline on repairs for the seismos
17:30:44 <KorbenC> Eric, which seismo?
17:30:57 <KorbenC> YNM and YNR are working fine for me
17:31:49 <Eric> YNM is from yesterday
17:31:58 <Eric> the helicorders
17:32:18 <Eric> If you have a working link, let me know
17:32:21 <KorbenC> nope :D
17:32:31 <KorbenC> I am seeing the stuff from today on SWARM
17:32:44 <Eric> That is not the helicorders across their network.
17:32:52 <KorbenC> oh, lol
17:32:55 <KorbenC> I missread
17:32:57 <Eric> I told them their api is working, just not the helicorders.
17:33:33 <Eric> what most people reference when referencing the seismographs.
17:38:50 <KorbenC> GRAND
