07:04:56 <LindaGp> Not a good start it froze up
07:06:01 <LindaGp> and back
07:17:05 <Joe> JimS is down basin, nice.
07:17:39 <Joe> He must have caught Fountain on his way in.
07:18:10 <LindaGp> Lc ie
07:18:52 <LindaGp> well maybe not
07:19:55 <LindaGp> There is like a 7 or 8 second delay
07:26:12 <LindaGp> Not sure what i sW looked like steam out by NG O
07:26:20 <LindaGp> or grove
07:27:00 <LindaGp> :might just have been from lion
07:27:40 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:29:27 <Joe> The way the video was stuttering it looked like from Lion on my recording.
07:30:04 <LindaGp> Ok thanks.
07:30:38 <LindaGp> I can just about move this thing, keeps freezing or the delay is ridiculous
07:32:11 <Joe> Hmmm, I was not having that problem, the moves were almost instantaneous for me :(
07:32:58 <Joe> I assume you are on M-jpeg?
07:33:31 <LindaGp> yes i am on m-jpeg. As soon as i took it it hung up
07:34:25 <LindaGp> 9am is a magical hour
07:34:26 <Joe> Well then...the camera does not like you.
07:35:05 <LindaGp> 😊 i guess not
07:35:21 <LindaGp> Little better now
07:39:07 <Joe> Found BHI on GOSA capture at 2358, I could not see it on my recording
07:41:18 <LindaGp> Its the NG pools i saw steaming
07:42:11 <LindaGp> i think thats the name
07:42:27 <Joe> yep video is not stuttering now
07:42:38 <159> you mean Goggle(s) Spring?
07:43:05 <LindaGp> Yes
07:46:17 <JarnoO> morning Korben. Atlantic 0/30 (1), Pacific 10/30 (1)
07:46:30 <JarnoO> Atlantic was 0/20 a few hours ago
07:46:47 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
07:46:50 <KorbenC> Morning Jarno
07:46:54 <KorbenC> and all
07:46:57 <JarnoO> morning all
07:47:01 <Joe> Lots of toilet flushes at Norris
07:47:12 <JarnoO> xD
07:47:16 <LindaGp> Hi KorbenC, JarnoO,
07:47:26 <KorbenC> LindaGp, Joe, hi
07:47:40 <LindaGp> Lc ie
07:49:18 <LindaGp> This ones for Dave
07:50:08 <Dave from B™> woohoo
07:50:15 <Dave from B™> Good morning all LC lovers!
07:50:27 <LindaGp> Morning
07:50:30 <KorbenC> Morning Dave
07:59:51 <KorbenC> JO, both GFS and Euro are predicting the Atlantic system to develop and the Pacific invest to fall apart. :)
08:01:16 <Forestbewithyou> Morning all
08:01:23 <linda> OF
08:01:30 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
08:01:40 <Forestbewithyou> Howdy Korben :)
08:03:07 <Mike J> Just a quick visit. Now I have to sign off and give a presentation. Good luck with the cam, all.
08:05:14 <JarnoO> good for the Atlantic. The NHC didn't start issueing advisories for nothing 16 days early
08:06:16 <LindaGp> Can someone enter that OF please
08:06:58 <JarnoO> Grand 0805
08:08:44 <LindaGp> Thx
08:10:27 <Joe> OF looked short to me
08:11:38 <KorbenC> Obloing ie?
08:11:40 <KorbenC> on HLS delay
08:12:57 <86> Looked like Oblong to me too.
08:13:26 <KorbenC> Yes on Oblong
08:14:58 <LindaGp> Sorry lazer focused on grand ☹
08:15:00 <Kevin 🌲> I would think Jim would have posted it.
08:15:30 <LindaGp> Kevin 🌲, hi
08:15:35 <JarnoO> I'm giving it a hard no for Oblong. If Grand went atomic, then Oblong certainly must have. You can see Artemisia passively steaming too.
08:15:49 <JarnoO> steam from F&M corner
08:16:35 <KorbenC> I put it in as a (?) I hope someone in basin can figure it out :)
08:17:11 <Joe> OF ended 0802:39 very close to a long so I'll mark it N/A, JarnoO I agree with you about Oblong
08:18:09 <JarnoO> plus we'd also see water from Oblong. None of that sort on the capture
08:18:27 <KorbenC> It is in as a comment now :)
08:20:01 <LindaGp> Lc ie
08:21:37 <Joe> Have fun!! I'm history :)
08:21:58 <Dave from B™> Bye, Joe.
08:22:06 <KorbenC> Bye Joe
08:22:32 <Kevin 🌲> Heading north.
08:22:44 <JarnoO> Korben, looks like your note got axed
08:22:58 <JarnoO> have fun, Kevin
08:23:18 <LindaGp> Joe, enjoy
08:23:34 <LindaGp> Kevin 🌲, safe travels
08:23:36 <KorbenC> JarnoO, I was the one who axed it :)
08:23:42 <JarnoO> ah, okay
08:23:55 <KorbenC> It is not worth an argument and I am probably wrong nayways.
08:25:08 <LindaGp> it looked like oblong initially but i think the steam was blending with steam from behind the trees
08:30:56 <JarnoO> Middle Sister is active
08:37:59 <JarnoO> was active?
08:38:29 <ynpvisitor9> did you observe any of the bursts on the webcam?
08:38:44 <JarnoO> too late I think
08:39:07 <JarnoO> too late yeah, mentioned it @ 0830 and panned to it a bit later
08:39:59 <LindaGp> There was an eruption 08:11 also
08:40:12 <LindaGp> So maybe again soon
08:40:28 <ynpvisitor9> are you confident the person saw Middle Sister and not Three Crater?
08:40:45 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor9, hi 9
08:40:57 <LindaGp> no idea
08:41:05 <KorbenC> We cannot of course know for certain that it was Middle Sister, maybe we will see it from the cam :D
08:41:30 <LindaGp> im assuming its the pool innthe middle?
08:41:37 <JarnoO> yes
08:41:55 <LindaGp> :)
08:42:10 <ynpvisitor9> no entries for Three Crater in that span of time.... hmmm
08:43:18 <LindaGp> 3c
08:43:24 <Dave from B™> Does anyone know who the entrant is? Not familiar to me.
08:43:57 <KorbenC> I have seen the entrant before I think
08:44:09 <JarnoO> Todd Singleton goes by skookum. Does that shine a light?
08:44:29 <Dave from B™> I don't know him
08:44:32 <KorbenC> Registered Sep 2019 :)
08:45:44 <KorbenC> I know a gazer by the name of Todd, but that last name does not ring a bell.
08:48:28 <JarnoO> they do appear to know their stuff in Norris
08:50:09 <KorbenC> JarnoO, do they have any 2020 entries?
08:50:54 <ynpvisitor9> I regret triggering an inquisition LOL
08:51:35 <KorbenC> ynpvisitor9, lol
08:52:30 <JarnoO> I found a late September 2020 comment from them. No entries, but they evidently were in Yellowstone
08:52:42 <JarnoO> or no entries yet, but that comment is there
08:55:42 <Dave from B™> Who started this?:) Observing the area is our best bet
08:58:53 <LindaGp> Brb
09:01:21 <LindaGp> Back
09:02:09 <LindaGp> ec
09:02:13 <LindaGp> 3c
09:02:51 <KorbenC> lets see if a middle sister entry pops up :)
09:04:47 <KorbenC> Hi kc
09:06:53 <Katie> Hi all
09:08:17 <LindaGp> Katie, hi
09:08:34 <kc (working)> mornin KC
09:10:33 <LindaGp> wonder. Whats happening behind those trees
09:12:06 <JarnoO> behind the tree is the isthmus connecting South Sister (with Mugwump and friends) to Middle Sister
09:12:26 <JarnoO> and also some kind of vent which doesn't do anything
09:14:16 <JarnoO> technically I should've used 'strait' rather than 'isthmus' :)
09:20:10 <Eric> Good Morning
09:20:23 <LindaGp> Eric, hi
09:21:18 <JarnoO> morning Eric
09:21:54 <KorbenC> Eric, hi
09:23:34 <LindaGp> Sneaky
09:23:37 <LindaGp> OF ie
09:31:04 <LindaGp> Static for OF is 09:22
09:36:20 <JarnoO> doggies
09:36:49 <JarnoO> dangerous route
09:37:05 <JarnoO> they did find Plate by the looks of it
09:37:34 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
09:45:45 <JarnoO> Aurum 0944 static
09:45:52 <JarnoO> also 0943
09:46:27 <LindaGp> :p
09:48:43 <LindaGp> Cpu is climbing
09:49:14 <JarnoO> uh oh
09:49:37 <LindaGp> 49%
09:51:53 <LindaGp> Going down
09:52:01 <JarnoO> good
09:52:18 <LindaGp> slowly ☺
09:53:39 <Katie> I'm ready to log on at 10:00 if cover plans haven't changed.
09:54:29 <LindaGp> Its yours, you can take now if you want
09:55:40 <LindaGp> cpu up again ☹
09:55:46 <Katie> I start the sometimes tedious logon attempt, then.
09:56:08 <LindaGp> Sounds good ☺
09:56:21 <Katie> Get in while CPU is low enough to let me... :)
09:56:40 <Katie> Im in
09:56:40 <LindaGp> Katie, the CPU is arond 49%
09:56:48 <Eric> Hi Linda, Jarno, Korben & Dave :-D
09:56:52 <Eric> and Hi Katie
09:56:56 <LindaGp> And im out
09:57:10 <LindaGp> Enjoy
09:57:47 <Eric> My summit block pic from Sunday on Mt. Shasta
09:58:24 <Katie> Hi Eric
09:58:29 <Eric> Woops, wrong picture...this one is better
09:58:57 <KorbenC> Eric, you look like you are running out of 02
09:59:00 <KorbenC> O2*
09:59:39 <Eric> Lots of zinc on my face :-D
10:00:03 <Eric> alright...meeting time..enjoy the geysers
10:00:08 <KorbenC> haha, you still look a bit "zombie like" :)
10:42:42 <Eric> The mineral based sunscreen I use is very "blue" and really sticks to my scruffy face :-P
10:43:44 <KorbenC> Eric, still, you look like a zombie
10:44:19 <KorbenC> Eric, we all look like zombies above 14k, like the walking dead
10:45:14 <Katie> Eric, I used titanium dioxided based sunblocks (lupus & sunscreen allergies make titanium dioxide and zinc oxide my only options and titanium is best). and know "the look" well.
10:46:24 <KorbenC> lol, and I just use cheap spray on sunscreen
10:46:48 <Katie> KorbenC, I get hives from that - and they last a LONG time.
10:47:07 <KorbenC> Katie, :(
10:47:51 <Katie> I couldn't even apply sunscreen to my son unless I used my kind (which he hated, because, well, zombie...)
10:48:55 <Katie> Then he developed the same allergy and had to deal with it. Daycare called me when he erupted in hives one afternoon. I picked him up, washed it all off, gave him Benadryl, and supplied them with titanium dioxide to use on him.
10:49:49 <Katie> But on group outtings, I still get asked to help apply sunscreen to others and have to decline, unless we use mine.
10:50:26 <KorbenC> I never knew people were alergic to certain kinds of usnscreen, I learn something new every day :)
10:50:38 <Katie> When my dermotologist first told me to use titanium dioxide 23 years ago, I had to special order it and it was expensive. Now it is on shelves and economical.
10:51:44 <KorbenC> Do you know what in the normal sunscreen makes you break out in hives?
10:52:07 <Katie> There are a number of chemicals in chemical sunscreen that many people are allergic or sensitive to. There are also many people allergic to zinc, but I'm not one of them. But the titanium dioxide blocks the largest spectrum, which is also important with lupus.
10:56:17 <Dave from B™> I use a floppy hat:)
10:57:18 <Katie> Dave from B™, I use that, too - and long sleeves. I go snorkeling in long sleeves so I'm protected but don't kill coral with sunblock (although the titanium dioxide is safer for coral, too, than chemical sunscreen).
10:57:44 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, I HATE, like despise hats :P
10:57:47 <Dave from B™> Yes, I have several lighweight long sleeves. I just have to watch my nose and neck
10:59:03 <Katie> Dave from B™, I have learned to love hats. That took some adjustment, but I'm well adjusted now. My hair is thin enough that I get lupus rash on my scalp if I don't, and the medicine for that is a steroid foam. Hat is better, and protects ears and face, too.
11:00:05 <Dave from B™> bandana or neck gaiter works great for your neck as well.
11:02:06 <Rice> Afternoon everyone, Being Bald, makes you learn to love hats also. I found Tilley Hats about 5 years ago, they are durable, and vented well enough to keep you cool.
11:03:12 <Dave from B™> I love my Tilley hat!
11:03:26 <Dave from B™> and, it floats!:D
11:03:35 <Rice> Lifetime warranty!
11:03:43 <Katie> Rice, I forgot my Tilley when going to Mexico a few years ago. Bought a $10 (American) wide-brimmed, lightweight, well venting hat there that has become my "standard." Now I can't find my Tilley when I DO want it. Might have to get another.
11:04:15 <Dave from B™> Mine is so dirty it might need to be replaced
11:04:45 <Katie> Dirty hats are a sign one has had good times wearing that hat.
11:05:16 <Dave from B™> haha. Yep!
11:05:40 <Rice> Mine also Dave, I went with the olive green for my second one, doesnt show the dirt and sweat as bad.
11:07:14 <Rice> My neighbors dog does not like my Tilley, he barks at me when I wear it. If I dont have the hat on, no barking?
11:07:49 <Dave from B™> He barks when he is blinded by your bald head:)
11:08:04 <Dave from B™> oops that it backwards
11:08:18 <Dave from B™> Maybe, you seem more imtidimidating or taller?
11:08:22 <JarnoO> maybe you should tip your hat next time you pass the dog. Maybe it wants respect?
11:08:59 <Betty> morning all
11:09:00 <JarnoO> evening Betty
11:09:24 <Betty> evening JarnoO
11:09:46 <kc (working)> hi Betty
11:09:59 <Betty> howdy kc (working)
11:12:31 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty, kc (working)
11:12:57 <kc (working)> 👋
11:13:34 <Betty> hey Dave from B™
11:14:33 <Betty> guess Kevin is on his way north?
11:15:18 <JarnoO> he is
11:16:33 <Dave from B™> I hope he has his winter coat
11:16:37 <KorbenC> anyone know if Kat got her car fixed?
11:16:57 <Betty> hi KorbenC
11:17:02 <KorbenC> Betty, hi
11:17:10 <Dave from B™> Yes, she did
11:18:30 <Eric> I buy my cheap sunscreen at walmart, equate brand :-P $2 for a can of it and its not in a tube. I hate squirt sunscreen, like to be able to scoop out what I need.
11:18:47 <Eric> and I apply liberally because it's cheap.
11:18:59 <Betty> hi Eric
11:24:42 <Katie> Dave from B™, Matt, I thought, was going to Billings today for 2 days of jobs there (for Caption Call). I reminded him to be careful on passes.
11:25:11 <Katie> He texted a while ago and said Rogers Pass was fine, so now I'm confused. I must have misunderstood his schedule.
11:25:44 <Katie> I replied "but I thought you were going to Billings??!!"
11:25:47 <Eric> Hi Betty!
11:25:48 <Dave from B™> Tell him to come in and take advantage of our anniversary sale....Fresh Halibut for $16.99/lb plus many other specials.
11:26:04 <Dave from B™> haha. He left his map at home
11:26:38 <Katie> Dave from B™, he's like you. Except no allergies. He just doesn't do fins. Now your shellfish selections would be another matter. But nothing with fins.
11:27:36 <Dave from B™> Sounds like he's going to Helena
11:27:39 <Eric> Hey Betty, I climbed with a german friend from stuttgart this weekend. After we got back to our cars and done with climbing we all did the dj otzi burger dance :-P
11:28:41 <JarnoO> Korben, question for you: On this map, where is a natural gas reservoir?:*&datacenter=KNMI&planet=earth
11:28:43 <Eric> The pizza hut, the pizza hut, kentucky fried chicken and the pizza hut!
11:28:57 <JarnoO> oh darn, stupid asterisk
11:29:17 <JarnoO> just copy-paste the link then
11:30:11 <KorbenC> Isn;t there kuje a Gribubgeb field in the Netherlands?
11:30:16 <KorbenC> wow
11:30:20 <Eric> Also had a keg of warsteiner to finish off our hike :-D
11:30:37 <KorbenC> Isn't there like a Groningen gas field in the Netherlands?
11:30:52 <JarnoO> yes, but where is that one approximately? :)
11:31:08 <KorbenC> where all those dots are :P
11:31:24 <KorbenC> N and NE Netherlands
11:31:45 <Katie> Dave from B™, even going to Helena, I-90 to Garrison is fastest. He must be going to Great Falls. Or he's lost.
11:31:50 <Betty> hahaha, Eric, cool stuff
11:31:54 <JarnoO> Indeed. Quite impressive how many stations they've deployed there
11:32:18 <KorbenC> gotta be in the hundreds
11:32:37 <Eric> Yes, it was a very good time....we were all dancing and drinking beer in the middle of nowhere :-PP
11:32:56 <JarnoO> 817 going by the list at the bottom of the page
11:34:16 <Dave from B™> Don't you still go over Rogers Pass if you go to Garrison?
11:35:19 <Katie> Dave from B™, nope. No travel on Hwy 200 at all going that route - and even if you do take Hwy 200 from Bonner to Avon cutoff, you still don't go over Roger's Pass.
11:36:08 <Dave from B™> oops. I was thinking McDonald Pass
11:40:28 <JarnoO> apparantly you can make your own seismograph with a Raspberry Pi
11:41:00 <Eric> Yep, as long as you have an accelerometer :-D
11:41:01 <JarnoO> quite expensive though, so maybe not for everyone
11:41:12 <Eric> The Pi is the cheap part
11:41:18 <JarnoO> cheapest model goes for $374.99
11:41:28 <KorbenC> Jarno, its very simple actually :P
11:41:54 <KorbenC> Take a slice of Raspberry Pi and put it on a string, hanging it over the edge of a table. If it shakes there is an EQ.
11:42:26 <JarnoO> DIY and BYORP (bring your own Raspberry Pi) is $214.99
11:43:40 <Katie> Last week, playing online multiplayer game on PlayStation, one guy on our team shouted, we heard noise, and he was gone. He is in CA. We all watched for quake news. ha ha
11:44:08 <Katie> (he saw his car being stolen from his driveway - that was the cause of his hasty departure and shouting - car was recovered by PD that night)
11:44:21 <JarnoO> good
11:45:05 <Katie> Several people pulled up USGS site and I said "it takes a few minutes for quakes to show up there, but people will post on FB almost instantly - and I don't see anyone posting"
11:46:04 <Eric> oh wow...that is a bummer.
11:47:51 <Katie> I'm impressed that car was recovered quickly - but then he was on phone with 911 telling them which direction it was headed immediately.
11:48:32 <Katie> "I saw movement in my driveway and looked up and my car was being taken" he said "So I was chasing with my phone in hand dialing 911"
11:56:08 <JarnoO> I'm impressed by his quick reaction. I probably wouldn't even have noticed when I'm playing a game
11:57:22 <Betty> lol, Jarno
11:59:34 <KorbenC> JarnoO, I thought you didn't drive?
11:59:57 <JarnoO> no, but my parents' car
12:00:06 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
12:14:15 <Betty> Riverside
12:18:57 <Katie> Haven't made any movements on cam in a while (being conservative) and CPU is creeping back up -59% now.
12:21:00 <Betty> daisy ie
12:43:26 <Betty> OF
12:47:39 <Eric> still around?
12:48:10 <KorbenC> Eric, yea?
12:48:49 <Eric> I found your alter ego from the 70s!
12:49:17 <Eric> That is a picture of him from the near the summit of Mt. St. Helens before it erupted!
12:49:41 <KorbenC> lol, Eric, you just found my older self :P
12:49:42 <Eric> Looking at Mt. Rainier in the background.
12:50:14 <KorbenC> oh yea, yesterday was Mt. St hellens aniversary
12:50:35 <Eric> Yep, he posted those pictures of himself in one of my climbing groups.
12:52:02 <KorbenC> I saw some pictures from Rainier watching Helens erupt.
12:52:39 <Eric> I think those are pictures from Mt. Adams
12:52:59 <Eric> I don't think anyone got images from the top of Rainier, even though I know a climber that was up there that day.
12:53:13 <KorbenC> Eric, it was from the slopes below the summit
12:53:46 <Eric> ahh...the best images are the ones from the top of Mt. Adams...incredible shots due to being close and the angle on the blast zone.
12:55:53 <Eric> This set:
12:56:40 <KorbenC> wow
12:59:55 <Eric> I love how the person is seeing it and then is knocked over by it!
13:18:38 <JarnoO> this is the other end of that Mount St. Helens picture:
13:18:46 <Betty> hi Linda
13:18:53 <linda> Betty, hi
13:19:47 <linda> at least they give an explanation as to why they are charging you
13:21:37 <JarnoO> in my city's center they charge 10 cents for every 3 minutes parking...
13:21:51 <linda> wow
13:25:36 <JarnoO> in another municipatility they charge €2.40 (almost $3) per hour for a parking spot at the beach
13:27:54 <linda> I guess around by me it's 25 cents per 15 minutes, I shouldnt be surprised at Jarno's
13:28:57 <JarnoO> at that municipality they want to decrease congestion at the beach, in mine they want to promote going by bike as much as possible
13:29:35 <JarnoO> Giant platform notes don't spark much hope
13:31:03 <linda> too many pixels to tell if Bulgers Hole is erupting
13:31:08 <linda> and gone now
13:34:55 <Betty> OT
13:50:22 <pixel cam> so this is the new normal for the cam?
13:52:40 <JarnoO> until fiber I think so
13:58:32 <pixel cam> that is years away
13:59:29 <Jake> someone said "new normal" *DRINK!*
14:00:17 <Betty> hi Jake
14:00:19 <Jake> I'm here for the 14 hour Beehive
14:00:40 <JarnoO> ehh, that might be optimistic
14:02:00 <Dave from B™> Jake, 14 hours is NOT the "new normal"
14:02:11 <11> there was a 17h 50 min BEE yesterday, leaking into today:)
14:03:51 <Jake> I'm hoping for a summer of the 14h - 18h Beehives instead of the 22 - 34h
14:06:00 <Jake> any regularity and non-dormancy is good though
14:10:25 <Dave from B™> Jake, are you able to get to YNP this year?
14:13:00 <Jake> short trip over Memorial Day weekend. I have some hiking/climbing objectives so I don't know how much geyser gazing I'll get in
14:13:18 <KorbenC> Jake, what climbing/hiking?
14:13:49 <Jake> keeping an eye on Steamboat but it looks like that won't work out unless it goes today and then has a short interval and looks regular again
14:15:27 <Jake> KorbenC, scoping out Abiathar Peak routes & snow conditions. I'm trying to summit the Absarokas, especially in the park
14:16:23 <KorbenC> Jake, nice
14:17:28 <Jake> crappy rock and little-visited summits, guaranteed adventure
14:20:34 <Jake> Abiathar and Amphitheater are the most intimidating ones left in the park. Pilot & Index out of the park
14:21:17 <JarnoO> 1416 G--
14:23:24 <Dave from B™> Sounds like fun. Some days this seems like a Mountaineering chat room:D
14:24:38 <KorbenC> Jake, from google earth that S Gully looks doable, as well as the northernmost east gully.
14:29:05 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, >50% of the chat here is about non-geysers :)
14:30:06 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
14:30:11 <JarnoO> night Betty
14:30:12 <Jake> the problem with Abiathar from the south is the approach. I know some people that have been up Amphitheater Creek and it is apparently awful
14:30:29 <KorbenC> Jake, have you looked at West Slopes?
14:30:42 <Jake> steep sidehilling through deadfall forest for 6 miles
14:31:08 <KorbenC> You could survive the south ridge, lol
14:31:12 <Jake> the standard routes for the few dozen people that have been up there are S Ridge and E Face (approach from the N)
14:32:22 <Jake> S Ridge is less technical but does involve committing, exposed moves on friable rock with poor protection options above a 1000 foot drop
14:32:35 <KorbenC> yes, that would be the worry there.
14:32:48 <KorbenC> Looks alot like the Capitol ridge in CO
14:32:48 <Eric> Ahh cool, glad you are hitting some climbs Jake :-D
14:34:23 <Eric> I have wanted to hit some of the SE peaks in the park too.
14:35:08 <Jake> there's an out of print book called Select Peaks of Greater Yellowstone that is a must-read for YNP peak baggers
14:35:22 <Jake> it's $300 used online
14:35:25 <Eric> It's interesting with climbing how some destinations can be easier with snow than without.
14:35:45 <Eric> wow....maybe I can check it out online :-D
14:36:35 <Jake> my earlier peak bagging days in YNP, I didn't have snow gear and the thought of using an ice axe was totally wacko to me
14:36:53 <Jake> now I'm hoping the snow is in to stomp on up there
14:36:54 <KorbenC> Jake, ice axes are great :)
14:37:18 <Eric> I totally understand that.
14:37:53 <Jake> there's almost no info online about climbing these peaks. Here's someone's write up of Abiathar on the author's forum:
14:39:21 <Eric> I like summitpost a lot
14:40:15 <Eric> Their main page for the whole range
14:45:01 <Jake> summitpost would be the best place to hold that info, but it's pretty lacking in actual route information for the ones I want more info on
14:49:13 <Jake> but lack of info also adds to the adventure and is refreshing to not exactly know what I'm getting into. I just rather not die
14:53:23 <KorbenC> Well, you can usually turn around
14:53:54 <Katie> I wonder if Daisy erupted at the same time as Grand
14:54:56 <JarnoO> likely during the Fluffy wait - favorable conditions probably pushed it sub-2h
15:01:32 <Eric> Oh for sure Jake, especially in yellowstone. So much exploration that can be done.

15:04:58 <Katie> Going wide now in case camera becomes unresponsive to controls
15:05:07 <Kevin 🥔> Good timing!
15:05:13 <JarnoO> 1501:55
15:05:17 <Katie> Hi Kevin
15:06:46 <Kevin 🥔> Hi. Eating lunch in Idaho.
15:06:52 <Kitt> Korben hasn't taken spelling class yet Dave
15:07:00 <JarnoO> Kevin, did you turn Irish?
15:07:00 <Eric> Anyone see this cool article?
15:07:14 <Kitt> That
15:07:16 <Dave from B™> Korben doesn't think English is important
15:07:27 <Kitt> that's a long way to go to have lunch Kevin
15:07:44 <KorbenC> Mais, je peux écrire en français.
15:08:01 <Kevin 🥔> I was born Irish Jarno
15:08:11 <Eric> "Geologists will continue a broad range of studies of Yellowstone’s dynamic volcanism. A major effort to map and determine the ages of hydrothermal explosion craters in Lower Geyser Basin began in 2020 and will continue in the coming summer"
15:08:12 <Kitt> Did you say you were moving to France Korben?
15:08:28 <JarnoO> from that article: "Work done during the past week will ensure that the network [YVO loggers] continues to operate all summer long." So far the loggers haven't uploaded any data. That's as far as that goes then...
15:08:31 <KorbenC> Kitt, no, I would never move to France.
15:08:56 <Eric> haha...not summer yet Jarno!
15:09:14 <JarnoO> Korben, you'd wave with a white flag before ascending a mountain if you were to move to France
15:09:23 <pixel cam> a long way from summer
15:09:57 <Jeff> im liking these bee intervals
15:10:16 <Kitt> It is 80 degrees ub Worland, so it might as well be summer
15:10:27 <pixel cam> is it dry there Kitt?
15:10:28 <Kitt> in not ub
15:10:40 <Kitt> yes
15:11:02 <pixel cam> are you coming camping in the park soon Kitt?
15:11:13 <Kitt> probably not
15:11:25 <Jake> boo, Beehive missed the 14hour interval
15:11:27 <Kitt> most camping is reservation only
15:11:33 <pixel cam> I thought you bought a camper to stay out of cabins from now on
15:12:04 <Kitt> no, you are only allowed to camp for a total of 14 days in Yellowstone during the summer
15:12:20 <KorbenC> Kitt, really?
15:12:20 <pixel cam> well that is two weeks
15:12:29 <Kitt> I had a cabin without bath, but they aren't open so far
15:12:33 <KorbenC> I wonder what Craig is doing than.
15:12:35 <pixel cam> and isn't that per campground?
15:12:43 <pixel cam> Craig stays outside the park
15:12:50 <Kitt> probably camping outside of Yellowstone and driving in
15:12:53 <KorbenC> smart
15:12:58 <Jeff> yea craig stays at a campground in west usually
15:12:59 <Kitt> not it is total
15:13:06 <Kitt> no
15:13:17 <pixel cam> I heard they are using the cabins to house employees
15:13:19 <KorbenC> Last summer he spend alot of time at Madison :)
15:13:31 <pixel cam> so they are not opening anytime soon, especially if more things at OF open
15:13:32 <KorbenC> pixel cam, certainly not all of them :D
15:13:47 <Kitt> West works ok if you get up really early otherwise you could be stuck in traffic for 2 or more hours
15:13:49 <pixel cam> well the ones without baths Korben
15:13:55 <KorbenC> BH
15:13:58 <JarnoO> :bee:
15:14:03 <pixel cam> Craig did not stay at Madison at all last year
15:14:20 <KorbenC> pixel cam, I thought he did.
15:14:20 <Kitt> the park is only open at level one for now
15:14:32 <pixel cam> I am on delay I guess
15:14:51 <KorbenC> Yes, about 30sec delay I think.
15:16:16 <pixel cam> it is a shame that this new cam sucks
15:16:42 <KorbenC> It is better than no cam
15:17:03 <pixel cam> still, it does not reflect well upon Yellowstone
15:17:49 <KorbenC> It does not reflect well on the NPS is what you mean?
15:18:00 <Eric> The new camera is fine...they just don't know how to operate it correctly I believe.
15:18:18 <pixel cam> that is what I meant Eric. Figure it out!
15:18:35 <KorbenC> Eric, yes :)
15:18:41 <pixel cam> maybe you could send them an e mail?
15:18:54 <pixel cam> hard to believe no one in IT can figure it out
15:18:59 <Eric> Already did...promptly ignored.
15:18:59 <KorbenC> pixel, we have tried, lol.
15:19:36 <pixel cam> maybe send it to CC and she could forward it. Isn't she the go to cam person for volunteers still?
15:25:11 <JarnoO> Indicator: 1501:55 lead=12m43s, total=14m50s; Beehive: 1513:38 5m01s
15:31:56 <JarnoO> Lion
15:37:47 <JarnoO> 1531:24 3m24s. Judging by the eruption it's probably end of series
15:57:10 <Katie> Driver on deck ready?
15:57:48 <Katie> Logged out
15:58:26 <Joe> yes, The camera is singing in it's best Freddy Fender voice, "Please Release Me Let Me Go"
16:03:03 <Katie> Nice boil
16:04:15 <JarnoO> Aurum looks mildly positive
16:04:34 <JarnoO> or something. I don't know Aurum in detaul
16:04:37 <JarnoO> detail*
16:16:40 <Joe> Daisy
16:21:25 <Joe> Looks like hail
16:31:23 <JarnoO> never knew Grand Prismatic was also known as Boiling Coral Well
16:34:19 <JarnoO> decision card for Fountain: "(...) Eruption interval, 2 hours when playing regularly but is now irregular; duration 10 minutes, elevation of discharge 75 ft. (...)"
16:36:24 <JarnoO> Aurum is known as 'Dragon Geyser' in GNIS, with Aurum Geyser as variant name
16:36:38 <JarnoO> valiant attempt by Lion there
16:44:51 <JarnoO> lackluster
16:46:17 <Joe> controls are very touchy
16:49:48 <linda> did Kevin make it there yet?
16:50:35 <Joe> have not heard
16:50:51 <linda> I guess he'd have logged in.
16:51:40 <Katie> He caught Beehive during a stop
16:52:08 <linda> Katie, oh great!
16:53:15 <linda> uh oh
16:53:19 <Katie> Uh oh
16:53:48 <Joe> nope just playing
16:54:10 <linda> :)
16:54:22 <linda> just wants to know if we were paying attention
16:54:42 <Joe> >(
16:58:23 <Joe> According to the 1456 Aurum note I am wasting my time looking for Aurum
17:23:57 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy the old geez... - Old Faithful
17:40:24 <Joe> Hi Kevin, where are you?

18:38:33 <linda> oh I guess not if you are in idaho, duh

18:58:05 <linda> Kevin 🥔, >(
18:58:59 <Kevin 🥔> I did see a very tiny BH at lunch.
18:59:38 <linda> Kevin 🥔, where and what?

19:01:57 <linda> Kevin 🥔, no sure what that means

19:06:38 <KorbenC> Thanks Linda, glad her car got fixed.
19:06:53 <linda> yes it wasn't as bad as she thought
