08:46:05 <LindaG> Hi tom
08:46:25 <TomK> Good morning all.
08:46:32 <JarnoO> morning Tom
08:46:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
08:46:39 <TomK> Cam controls very slow loading
08:46:57 <LindaG> TomK, ok you can take when you want
08:47:49 <TomK> I need a few minutes to get set up
08:48:09 <LindaG> no problem
08:48:33 <TomK> The cam has been loading at least 10 minutes
08:48:58 <LindaG> Didnthat to me and i close and went back in
08:49:18 <LindaG> *closed
08:49:25 <TomK> I'll try that
08:54:02 <TomK> loaded now. Any wild guesses on what to watch for?
08:54:22 <LindaG> Waiting on lion
08:55:26 <LindaG> Last ine isnt marked as an ini
08:55:39 <LindaG> So not sure about when
08:55:41 <TomK> OK, I'll take it
08:56:02 <TomK> Listed as 0731
08:56:12 <LindaG> Ok controls released
08:56:36 <LindaG> TomK, looks like only lion this morning but no ini on it
08:57:10 <LindaG> Daisy has been doing under 2 hrs
08:57:32 <LindaG> Last interval was 12 hrs 50 min ago
08:57:55 <LindaG> Good luck
08:58:18 <TomK> Let's see if I can get daisy and lion on the screen
09:00:25 <A> Last Lion 0731:35 to 0735:22 so imho not ini
09:04:57 <A> the hill was not covered until 0653, before that it was down basin and OF
09:07:17 <A> the 'night camop' chose to look for Grand and OF, and there was the matter of snow covering things, hence no Daisy
09:10:41 <TomK> Just timed that car and chat window is about 20 seconds delay from cam.
09:13:37 <TomK> lots of steam at daisy, no water
09:15:47 <A> Based on avg. 2 hour Daisy, Dasy in ~50 minutes
09:16:11 <A> But then, "it's a geyser"
09:17:06 <TomK> I always used to tell visitors, "never trust a geyser!"
09:17:19 <JarnoO> smart :)
09:18:43 <A> Daisy
09:18:53 <A> HaHA
09:19:33 <A> Daisy
09:19:35 <JarnoO> intervals must've been closer to 2h20m overnight. Daisy doesn't like bad weather nor strong winds
09:19:37 <A> .
09:19:55 <JarnoO> it's a diva among geysers :)
09:20:40 <TomK 2> Lost the chat, back as tomk2
09:21:22 <A> Talk about a geyser and It makes mee look like a fool :)
09:21:38 <A> me**
09:24:24 <TomK 2> We used to plan geyser hill walks, CW vs CCW depending on the last Plume eruption... Then one day Plume died.
09:26:10 <A> ‹TomK› I always used to tell visitors, "never trust A geyser!" you are absolutely correct!!
09:26:46 <JarnoO> Tom, based on what did you plan Hill walks after Plume died?
09:27:00 <JarnoO> or did you just go whatever direction you felt like?
09:28:14 <TomK 2> I preferred CW, ended the talk at Giantess
09:28:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Tom, does Butch ever work there anymore?
09:29:36 <TomK 2> Yes, usually either early or late season
09:29:52 <TomK 2> I'll check with Joanne. brb
09:30:06 <A> TomK 2, How many years were you a Park Ranger??
09:30:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice. I have been around there during those times but he was one of the first gazers I met. Took me to some very interesting places.
09:31:39 <TomK 2> Butch will fill in late August/ Sept this summer
09:32:17 <TomK 2> I was there 16 summers
09:33:00 <TomK 2> 12 at OF, 3 at Madison/Norris and one summer driving the bus
09:33:35 <A> TomK 2, Thanks
09:34:31 <TomK 2> Butch has been at OF around 40 years, took me to soe "interesting" places too
09:35:36 <TomK 2> Joanne has worked in the park 25 summers.
09:35:37 <JarnoO> I assume most of these places are off-limits now
09:35:55 <TomK 2> ;)
09:36:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sure miss them.
09:36:45 <A> Aurum is hot
09:36:55 <TomK 2> Some of the places we used to lead walks are now off limits. most notably Pocket Basin, Queen's Laundry...
09:36:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> T Scott did an awesome walk to White Creek for the gazers.
09:37:54 <TomK 2> Right, also white creek, tomato pools
09:38:51 <A> Was it Doublet causing me some excitement ?
09:39:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was sitting at BH when Indy went off. About 5m later Butch came up with a ranger walk and was about to head up toward Giantess. I routed him to BH. He said that was only the 3rd time he had seen it closeup. Tour group loved it.
09:41:36 <TomK 2> That's surprising. I had walks at BH many times, always paid attention to the gazers on the radio.
09:42:27 <TomK 2> Also took a group to my first Giant on advise from Mary Beth.
09:43:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was in the late 70's. No radios!
09:44:02 <TomK 2> Oh, Butch's first BH in late 70s, that explains it.
09:44:40 <TomK 2> My first summer as ranger was 1995
09:47:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My first trip was '69 but only got to see what Dad could get through the windshield for the most part. Once I got out of the service I came back and Her Warren routed me to Grand.
09:54:12 <TomK 2> My first visit was in fall of 1987, spent a week, said at the time it wasn't enough, never thought I'd get back again.
09:54:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This looks like a giant red Aurum.
10:10:17 <TomK 2> Not paying attention... Ouch

11:45:10 <nutz> Anyone buying a lottery ticket today?
11:46:06 <Craig M> morning all :)
11:46:34 <TomK 2> hi
11:46:51 <Craig M> why are we buying lottery tickets?
11:47:19 <nutz> Same chance of winning as getting hit by a chineese rocket.
11:47:34 <nutz> One would be more rewarding
12:04:26 <JarnoO> 1155:11 long 3m55s
12:05:19 <nutz> I thought they did not like electric bikes?
12:14:44 <JarnoO> Grand
12:18:20 <BenVL> Nice height on that start
12:27:36 <JarnoO> T1Q 10m51s
12:28:23 <TomK 2> Nothing else predicted for the rest of my shift, any requests? the Hill, Myriad?
12:28:52 <JarnoO> Hill would be fine
12:29:09 <TomK 2> Look for lion/bh/whatever
12:29:37 <nutz> Anemone
12:33:51 <BenVL> You could spin around in circles again
12:34:02 <JarnoO> oh no
12:34:28 <nutz> You want to tie the string in knots?
12:34:30 <TomK 2> OK, where's the button for that?
12:34:36 <Kevin 🚂> No indicator BH for Ben?
12:34:52 <BenVL> I would love that
12:35:11 <BenVL> Just don't look at it
12:35:55 <nutz> Nice poomp
12:36:41 <BenVL> I need to make a baseline for it this year
12:38:04 <nutz> Indy free bh, or poomp?
12:38:56 <BenVL> Beehive, with and without indy
12:39:54 <nutz> I will not be in the park, so it will go back to 12 hour intervals, and fountain will go to 5's
12:41:37 <BenVL> Can you get fountain to do 9's instead?
12:42:31 <nutz> Only planning on staying in basin for 8 hours?
12:42:57 <BenVL> No, I want to see morning :)
12:53:04 <Ben VL> Hi Jeff
12:53:21 <Jeff> hi ben
12:56:44 <TomK 2> Who's on cam next? Got to switch to OF if no one takes the cam at 1300
13:00:08 <TomK 2> Got to go folks, cya next week, was it good for you too?
13:00:20 <JarnoO> cya Tom
13:00:31 <JarnoO> I enjoyed it
13:00:35 <TomK 2> bye
13:08:29 <nutz> The anti wiggle algorithm, has problems.
13:09:32 <nutz> That, or the hill has a heart beat
13:11:13 <JarnoO> oh hi Bee
13:11:34 <Ben VL> HAAAA
13:11:36 <Ben VL> xDDDD
13:12:02 <nutz> You are in charge of the no indy interval now.
13:12:54 <JarnoO> no Indicator or <2m Indicator
13:13:23 <nutz> I did not see it when we moved.
13:14:11 <Michelle> Just came on, if there was an indicator, I missed it.
13:14:40 <Ben VL> I have missed the start of a no indicator bee in-person by a shorter window than that
13:14:57 <nutz> If it is not on GT, it did not happen.
13:17:15 <nutz> Time for other things. Enjoy.
13:17:27 <JarnoO> cya
13:22:06 <Michelle> Kat, are you there? Why is OF close and OF views reversed
13:29:21 <JarnoO> afternoon Korben. EPac 70/70
13:30:32 <KorbenC> Hey Jarno, good to see that.
13:36:01 <Betty> bah, I missed BH
13:36:52 <Betty> afternoon all, evening JarnoO
13:44:57 <Michelle> Can't seem to get the little feature on the river.
13:47:11 <JarnoO> evening Betty
13:48:13 <JarnoO> logger update: Steamboat, Tantalus and Vixen Soil are observationally dead. All other ones working as expected
13:53:52 <KorbenC> Certainly looks like a D on Constant temp
13:54:54 <JarnoO> last Whirligig minor on May 5. Number of data points per Whirligig eruption increasing, as it did with the previous disturbance
13:57:59 <JarnoO> intervals are increasing at a much quicker pace than the winter disturbance. It took about 7 days for Whirligig to reach an interval of ±3h30m with the previous disturbance, opposed to barely 3 this time
13:59:35 <Ben VL> The whirligig intervals increased fairly quickly on the July 30/31 2019 D as well
14:00:22 <JarnoO> maybe the quicker the interval rise, the shorter the disturbance?
14:00:42 <JarnoO> Weren't the 2019 disturbances on the shorter side of things?
14:01:05 <Ben VL> The summer one was very short
14:01:45 <Ben VL> Sb's interval was 12d. That one started while I was in the campground
14:02:09 <Ben VL> the winter/spring one was a bit larger
14:02:28 <Ben VL> I think SB may have actually erupted DURING that D
14:06:46 <JarnoO> SB has definitely changed how it behaves during disturbances. It now seems like it can erupt just before one starts or just after one ends, rather than being zapped
14:08:56 <Ben VL> Wow Giantess is a very light blue roday
14:08:59 <Ben VL> today
14:09:10 <KorbenC> Hi Ben
14:09:17 <Ben VL> Hia
14:18:53 <Michelle> Sorry, can't get the pan like Joe does down. Someday!
14:19:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> With this cam you are lucky just to get it to move!
14:20:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Talked to Dan Markoff today Korben. He should have the Eureka in Antoninto the last week of August.
14:22:50 <linda> hey hey
14:23:13 <linda> Was just reviewing my reservations for Sept.
14:23:18 <JarnoO> Riverside
14:27:57 <JarnoO> AURUM
14:28:09 <JarnoO> oops, caps lock
14:28:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
14:28:36 <linda> :)
14:35:22 <Michelle> Pump?
14:35:50 <JarnoO> that's Pump yeah
14:36:00 <Betty> watch the mighty Bald eagles:
14:38:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I want to watch the wimpy ones.
14:39:21 <JarnoO> cam's tired
14:40:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Michelle killed the cam!
14:41:17 <Michelle> Still trying to get that little river feature. Happens every time.
14:47:40 <KorbenC> Michelle, that little river feature = sprinkler?
14:48:51 <Michelle> Thanks Korben
14:49:40 <KorbenC> :thumbsup::)
14:49:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BTW Korben Dan said there would be 5 guest steam engines at Antonito the end of August including the one from Colorado Springs and another one from Nevada.
14:50:05 <KorbenC> Will Eureka be there?
14:50:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it will.
14:52:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the Glenbrook, the other one from Nevada.
14:53:21 <KorbenC> I wonder how long it took them to make that work!
14:54:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Several years. I got to ride the 25 from Henderson to Boulder City once when they were testing it.
14:55:10 <KorbenC> Probably takes alot ot keep it running, too.
14:56:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it does!
14:59:01 <Betty> hi Graham
14:59:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you look at the middle drive wheels on the 25 about the 3:00 mark you will notice that they don't have flanges. The V&T was so curvy that they didn't use them to avoid binding up on the curves.
15:02:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello there
15:03:08 <Ben VL> Hi Graham
15:03:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Ben. when do you get to SB?
15:04:06 <Ben VL> last week in May
15:04:21 <Ben VL> 21st or something
15:04:52 <Ben VL> I still have 2 or 3 nights of reservation left to patch in
15:05:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh good, so you wil be there Memorial day time?
15:05:33 <Ben VL> I'll either leave that day or the day after
15:06:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> see you then, I arrive on Sat 29th
15:06:49 <Ben VL> cool
15:06:54 <linda> hey graham
15:09:27 <linda> go sprinkler
15:47:29 <Craig M> uh
15:47:32 <Craig M> that looked good
15:51:07 <Ben VL> probably a nice boil based on steam going down the channel
15:51:34 <Ben VL> the video is so washed out I couldn't see what was going on on the pool though
15:52:47 <Ben VL> probably the cheapo sensor that bosch uses
15:54:12 <Craig M> they need to turn down their resolution. i swear they're trying to stream in 4k
15:54:46 <Ben VL> the brightness and contrast are all weird too.
15:55:07 <Ben VL> brighter colors are completely washed out
15:55:22 <Craig M> yeah. when you get close like that you can see the blue pool though
15:57:58 <JarnoO> EPac still 70/70
16:00:07 <Michelle> It's been awesome as always! You all have a great afternoon!
16:01:36 <JarnoO> cya Michelle, you too
16:02:21 <Betty> thanks for driving Michelle
16:12:45 <JarnoO> flower
