06:42:53 <Julia> Positive thoughts for you.
06:43:29 <Betty> I´m always positive. no space for negative thoughts in my brain
06:44:36 <Betty> OF
07:16:51 <Julia> I really miss the smell of the geyser basins in the early morning. Just looking reminds me of when we used to stay at the OFL cabins (WO bath). Fix breakfast in the parking lot and head out when it was light enough to see.

10:24:20 <b> fan and mortar?
10:26:28 <SantaFe108> looks like artemisia
13:04:51 <Betty> good afternoon
13:17:06 <SantaFe108> hi Betty
13:20:09 <Betty> hi SantaFe108
13:42:21 <SantaFe108> so many freezes and lots of pixelization
13:44:27 <Michael> I didn't notice anything in the video. Where should I be looking?
13:46:34 <SantaFe108> I was looking for UNNG-GHG-18 a little up and to the right of Marmot Cave but it looks like it probably was just weird cam stuff
13:49:19 <Michael> OK. Maybe the next bright blob will be an eruption.
13:49:49 <SantaFe108> bandwidth is really bad today :(
13:53:33 <Michael> Back to work. Hopefully I can check in again later.
13:53:43 <SantaFe108> cya Michael
14:15:25 <Betty> I´m sso gla Sawmill is back. I really love it
14:16:11 <SantaFe108> it's great to stand there and watch it for a while
14:16:47 <Betty> yeah
14:38:44 <Betty> Tardy
14:43:18 <Betty> OF
14:49:48 <SantaFe108> marmot
15:08:31 <SantaFe108> ghg-18
15:09:01 <SantaFe108> ? or not
15:09:32 <SantaFe108> looks like it was doing the blipping splashy stuff again without erupting fully
15:17:53 <linda> hello again
15:17:53 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
15:18:02 <linda> SantaFe108, hi
15:22:37 <Betty> hi linda
15:22:49 <linda> Betty, hi
16:16:03 <Julia> Oblong is erupting,
16:16:38 <Betty> must be lagged
16:18:21 <Betty> no Oblong
16:18:36 <SantaFe108> steam looks normal
16:18:51 <Julia> keep watching.
16:19:25 <Betty> do you have in basin report?
16:19:27 <Julia> It is very pixilated but it is happening. One of my favorites.
16:19:43 <Julia> No, I don't enter info any more.
16:19:51 <Betty> oh
16:20:41 <Julia> Been gazing since 1957. Books of notes, but finally had it with the know it alls. I am now much happier just not participating (mostly).
16:22:23 <Betty> Oblong is a fun one. I love the thumping
16:22:26 <SantaFe108> wow that's a long time, how different were things back then?
16:24:24 <Julia> Cars got a lot closer to the basins. I remember being parked above Artimesia when I was a kid, and the parking lots at Halfway and at Lone Star.
16:31:08 <SantaFe108> dang, now it doesn't even look like there used to be a parking lot above artemisia
16:35:01 <Julia> Parallel parking, 8 cars or so. ~Same at Midway and Lone Star.
16:41:35 <SantaFe108> were they packed usually?
16:44:15 <Julia> Roads were narrow, cars were bigger, and yes, lots of folks stopping, and traffic jams.
16:47:10 <SantaFe108> it seems traffic jams are one of the only constants in Yellowstone
16:47:21 <SantaFe108> atleast during the summer season
16:47:47 <Julia> But just like now, the majority come to see OF, then maybe Morning Glory Pool, and don't bother with anything else. Right now only 10% of visitors go on the Hill, slightly less walk to MGP (~5%). And yes just as many didn't bring their brain on vacation.
16:48:54 <Betty> hahaha, so true :-)
16:51:20 <SantaFe108> one thing I always found weird is how some people wait at OF an hour before the prediction instead of walking around the basin and coming back
16:53:47 <Julia> The majority are follwing the "crowd" and have no interest in science, they do what is popular. Just another tic on the list.
17:31:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Can you remember the traffic signal between the Inn and the Lodge Julia?
17:46:08 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
17:46:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
17:47:08 <SantaFe108> Night betty
18:36:37 <SantaFe108> hi Linda
18:44:02 <linda> SantaFe108, hi
18:44:27 <linda> SantaFe108, how r u?
18:44:49 <SantaFe108> im doing well not much going on
18:44:54 <SantaFe108> you?
18:45:14 <linda> I'm ok. Having post vacation depression. ;)
18:45:55 <SantaFe108> atleast you can still see the geysers on here :)
18:46:10 <linda> SantaFe108, :) for sure
18:47:09 <linda> SantaFe108, It's great going, but a drag leaving
18:49:12 <SantaFe108> yeah I feel the same way leaving the park
18:50:12 <linda> I'm happy though, saw a lot of great eruptions
18:50:43 <SantaFe108> never a bad trip to yellowstone
18:51:12 <linda> SantaFe108, :) not possible, well maybe if it rained the whole time. We had perfect weather
18:52:18 <SantaFe108> it was very stormy my trip but it kept the tourists away
18:53:15 <linda> :) that's a good deal. It was a little smokey around OF, but it was horrible in Lamar and Grand Tetons
18:54:54 <SantaFe108> dang hopefully it wasn't hard to breathe
18:55:36 <linda> my mask came in handy, it was difficult at times between that and the altitude
18:57:12 <SantaFe108> sometimes I forget YNP is so high up
18:59:26 <linda> But I didn't let it slow me down, just gasped for air occassionally lol
19:01:45 <SantaFe108> haha
19:03:18 <linda> :)
19:03:51 <linda> lion
19:17:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a trip where it rained 3 days straight. The firehole was about a foot below the bridge going from the cabins to the Hill.
19:25:45 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow, that's a drag
19:26:42 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, I thought about it when I was there, what in the world would I do all day
19:50:47 <SantaFe108> hi Korben
19:51:45 <KorbenC> HI SF, All.
