06:37:04 <73%> New building at North Entrance. Tacos?
07:21:53 <GO MORNING> we need the Taco stand at Nrris
07:22:10 <GO MORNING> -15 at OF, chilly
07:23:57 <Ætna> possible Aurum 0721 frame with dense steam popping above the fog
07:24:44 <linda> I thought it was burritos
07:25:23 <GO MORNING> maybe they can serve both
07:25:34 <GO MORNING> and the rice bowl for the asian tourists :)
07:25:53 <linda> :)
07:30:36 <GO MORNING> the breakfast burritos will go down well
08:53:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like I didnt miss anything
08:56:22 <Ætna> it's a pretty boring day all things considered. No livestream, no unusual things, just Fluffy at one frame per minute.
09:03:29 <linda> gorgeous
09:19:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> and we keep getting YNM updates every 10 minutes, that counts as excitement, especially if Boaty makes it shake
09:20:59 <Ætna> YNM has been stuck on 1301½ since March 10, so nothing there to get excited about
09:21:25 <Ætna> (on this page that is)
09:24:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, thats not good
09:24:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> it used to kee advancing ven when not uploading. wonder whats up with it?
09:26:05 <Ætna> I think the U of U messed something up at their end. Maybe a software update gone wrong or something
09:26:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see the history link is broken
09:27:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> well then we can truely go to sleep now .. or watch the flow meter ...
09:59:19 <Dave from B™> Top of the morning to everyone
10:02:35 <linda> Dave from B™, hi
10:03:52 <Dave from B™> I missed everyone. Still no streaming cam?
10:03:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And he survived!
10:04:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You didn't miss me!
10:04:07 <Dave from B™> Yes, LV was COLD
10:04:26 <Dave from B™> Thanks again for the train musuem tour. It was a blast
10:04:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Dave, welcome back
10:04:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The fish was great.
10:04:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> did your business survive without you?
10:05:49 <Dave from B™> Kevin, glad you liked it. It appeared to although I am way behind. Hope I can get everything done before April 8 liftoff to Moab
10:06:32 <Dave from B™> It was a successful 17 nights....Isles went 8-0-1:)
10:06:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt know you were retired already Dave
10:07:14 <Dave from B™> haha. Not retired. Worked about 1.5-3.5 hours everyday
10:07:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Knights tried hard to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory yesterday but couldn't do it.
10:08:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Since you delivered me fish can you deduct the trip as a business expense?
10:08:22 <Dave from B™> haha. Not in my DNA:)
10:09:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> good to hear that long trip went well
10:09:53 <Dave from B™> It was fun. We have a few things to improve before the next trip. Too much dirving this time around.
10:19:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Were you going to Zion this trip?
10:20:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
10:20:56 <Dave from B™> At the end of the trip, we have 4 nights in Zion
10:21:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> I boked a week in Yosemite in Feb next year when Horsetail Falls can get lit up and added 4 nights in Death Valley and 4 in Zion too
10:22:44 <Dave from B™> GS, sounds like fun. We're hoping to fly somewhere for our first trip next year....I need warm water...most likely Big Island of Hawaii or St. Thomas. But I do want to go to Death Valley and I want to go to Yosemite during high water in May/June
10:23:08 <Dave from B™> Zion will be cold in Feb
10:23:20 <Dave from B™> But, I forgot, you like the cold
10:23:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yosemite will be colder.
10:23:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> hoping for a wet fall so Death Valey has a superbloom
10:24:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> theresonly a 10 day period when horsetail falls gets the sun on it at sunset, so you go then, or you dont
10:24:32 <Dave from B™> We were about 2 weeks early for desert blooms in AZ
10:24:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You may get some on the Moab trip.
10:25:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> late Feb should be good time for DV
10:26:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> agree Zion could be cold, some snow might make it pretty.
10:26:05 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I hope so but we may be early there as well. TRying to get to these places before it gets too hot
10:26:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> Hawaii is on my list, maybe next year .. never been there
10:27:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am enjoying Suzannes trip reports on facebook from her visit a year ago
10:35:45 <Dave from B™> We did get to 2 NP's this trip...Saguaro and Joshua Tree
10:36:08 <TomK> Good morning all.
10:36:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
10:37:40 <TomK> The latest word we get from Rebecca is that there is no power to the cam, and the folks from Mammoth will not come to OF to try to fix it until the roads get cleared.
10:38:17 <TomK> "Stunned silence"
10:40:16 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the update Tom. I know NPS has plenty of other things to do to get ready for the season
10:40:42 <TomK> Sorry to have to tell you. Pass the word around.
10:41:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I kind of figured that may be the issue.
10:43:19 <TomK> That's it for now. I'll be back to run the cam on Saturdays once it's running again.
10:43:40 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the update Tom. Have a good Saturday
10:44:18 <TomK> I'll be in the basin a few days in mid May. Bye
10:45:29 <Dave from B™> Is it Beast Eruption Day today?
10:46:47 <Ætna 💤> maybe. Steamboat logger looks positive. YNM's daythumb has not been updating since March 10, so we have no way of telling it 'live'
10:47:29 <Ætna 💤> only hope now is that Tantalus gauge remains functioning and the logger uploads its data
10:47:35 <Dave from B™> So, what is NOT broken?
10:47:45 <Ætna 💤> Tantalus gauge
10:47:51 <Ætna 💤> YVO loggers are spotty
10:48:04 <Ætna 💤> but generally performing better than the last few years
10:50:57 <Ætna 💤> there's actually an Icelandic cam showing some geothermal features. Basically a fast-updating static:
10:52:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> thermal, as in "cold"
10:52:19 <Ætna 💤> in Firefox these images literally flash by, so if you're prone to epilepsy I'd recommend opening it in Chrome or so, as there it doesn't flash (as much)
10:54:09 <Ætna 💤> it's this area:,-19.557751,783m/data=!3m1!1e3
10:54:21 <Ætna 💤> it even has a bathing pool filled by geothermal water
10:55:40 <Ætna 💤> it's a kind of mix between Porcelain and West Thumb - it has its spouters, but it appears hot, blue pools dominate the scene
10:56:36 <Ætna 💤> this one looks especially nice:,-19.5574129,3a,75y,336.79h,59.77t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sAF1QipN5dXGA6_N7U_7HCpcsiVFeR5NIxCNPOS34z6AF!2e10!7i6000!8i3000
11:27:14 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great Saturday everyone
11:27:20 <Dave from B™> Hi Bye Betty
11:27:41 <Betty> hey Dave!
11:27:47 <Ætna 💤> cya Dave, evening Betty
11:27:53 <Betty> hope you had a great trip :-)
11:28:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye Dave
11:28:27 <Betty> evening Jarno, hi Kevin
11:28:56 <Dave from B™> Had fun..wish it was warmer...only shorts for a week:)
11:31:10 <Betty> not too bad for March I guess
11:31:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty
12:01:17 <KorbenC> LOL, it is snowing so hard down here I can't see things 25ft away from me
12:15:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice
13:07:04 <Ætna 💤> no boat yet
13:08:14 <Ætna 💤> all loggers are functioning well
13:14:05 <KorbenC> Hi Ben
13:27:27 <BenVL> Hi
13:44:33 <KorbenC> BenVL, how much snow do oyu have now?
13:45:25 <BenVL> Not much yet
13:45:53 <BenVL> Last I checked it wasn't sticking to the roads yet
13:46:16 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
14:09:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> Morning Ftn dual today
14:10:04 <Ætna 💤> when?
14:12:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> Samsara says she will post it later
14:12:39 <Ætna 💤> ah ok
14:12:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> video of Ftn eruptingbut shesaid she only saw a couple of bursts but other guides saw more
14:15:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> would have been nice to see video with Morning in it .. but it is a beautiful bluebird day for closing
14:24:31 <Ætna 💤> another short dual. Fountain ±35m, Morning probably 5-10m if it's similar to the last one
14:28:53 <Betty> OF
14:35:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, doesnt describe much activity from Morning, maybe they are short eruptions and Ftn is short too
14:58:09 <yyy> no Morning bursts in those vids
15:15:46 <BenVL> What vids?
15:16:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice to see some ftn tho
