09:23:22 <JarnoO> restart
09:23:40 <Mike J> Thanks LindaGP I'll be in the park in a couple of weeks, and just trying to keep track if I'll be able to go in.
09:24:05 <LindaGp> Mike J, oh that will be nice
09:24:41 <Mike J> Yep, leaving 100+ degrees to get in much cooler climes.
09:25:04 <LindaGp> Arizona too?

09:36:39 <LindaGp> Mike J, its true, i was also
09:37:17 <LindaGp> The times inwas there it always dropped into 30s at night
09:38:28 <Mike J> The coldest wait I remember was end of May in a hailstorm. Tied closely with my last trip a couple of years ago where my thin coat and gloves was no match for the wind.
09:38:34 <Mike J> Both waiting for Beehive
09:39:01 <Mike J> That's when you know you are a true gazer
09:39:13 <LindaGp> :)
09:39:14 <Mike J> Or a mental case - which, in some instances, can be the same.

10:26:17 <LindaGp> *the way there
10:26:58 <Jeff> yea i can do the long drives but im starting to enjoy the drive up to the park so ive been doing 2 day drives
10:27:40 <LindaGp> The teton area is especially pretry
10:27:58 <Jeff> yea i just went there for the first time last year
10:28:08 <LindaGp> Oh wow
10:28:26 <LindaGp> inthink for sheer beauty it beats yellowstonw
10:28:38 <Jeff> i agree
10:28:56 <LindaGp> Ive flown into jackson a few times
10:30:24 <Jeff> i havent flown anywhere around the yellowstone/teton area
10:30:52 <LindaGp> Best view from an airport anywhere
10:31:21 <Jeff> id love to see yellowstone/tetons from above
10:31:37 <LindaGp> Its impressive
10:31:55 <LindaGp> nice drive from cody to east entrance too
10:32:29 <Jeff> cody and cooke city are the 2 entrance cities i havent been to yet
10:33:02 <LindaGp> Cody was nice. Never been to cooke, but id like to see it
10:34:29 <Jeff> i might check them out this year
10:35:11 <LindaGp> Cooke seems cool. Cody is just a nice little western town
10:36:00 <LindaGp> Has a ncie museum
10:37:21 <Jeff> i still dont know what my first geyser of the year will be this year lol
10:38:28 <LindaGp> The one thats erupting πŸ˜‰
10:39:03 <LindaGp> I bet its beehive
10:39:17 <Jeff> a lot of it is gonna be based on SB too though lol cause if that hasnt gone by the time i get up there ill be heading there right after i check into the hotel
10:39:40 <Jeff> id like beehive to be my first one this year
10:39:59 <LindaGp> Geez i hope SB erupts
10:40:11 <Jeff> it was the 3rd ever geyser ive seen when i first started working in the park
10:40:24 <Jeff> ii definitely wanna see it erupt soon
10:41:12 <LindaGp> People will be despondent if SB doesnt
10:42:25 <Jeff> i hope i get to see 1 more eruption before it decides to sleep again
10:43:27 <LindaGp> Fingers crossed
10:43:43 <Jeff> but im glad i was finally able to see it last year
10:44:25 <LindaGp> :thumbsup:
10:44:43 <Jeff> and of course the one i saw it decided to hit a nice height too lol
10:45:51 <LindaGp> Nice how that works out
10:46:33 <Jeff> and what made that eruption better was there was a family i had met the day before at work that i had shown beehive too and told them if they want to see an incredible geyser to go try and see steamboat and i met them at norris that day lol
10:47:28 <LindaGp> That's great, sure they were grateful
10:48:43 <Jeff> and they had a younger kid with them who got spoiled with SB who had gotten to the park that day lol
10:51:40 <LindaGp> ☺ great luck for him, its all downhill after that
10:57:08 <Jeff> still a lot of great geysers aside from that one though lol

14:53:49 <Betty> sounds like a German spellcheck :-)
14:54:25 <Betty> "Morgen" = tomorrow in German
