07:15:42 <CraigC> cool
07:15:59 <CraigC> I used to come in here a lot, then took a break for about a year
07:17:40 <7> I used it years ago when Paul T hosted it, was not sure this was/is the same
07:17:44 <CraigC> I forgot the name of the far left vent
07:18:28 <CraigC> south bubbler in front, right?
07:18:54 <CraigC> oh, there is one even further left
07:19:16 <7> wes bubblers
07:19:17 <Kat> BSB in front - west to left
07:20:01 <Kat> The west doesn't have a name in the list so I put it under Other
07:20:59 <Kat> Don't always enter left though
07:21:06 <CraigC> the other day I saw someone use a name for one of the vents above Marmot Cave, that I don't remember ever seeing named before
07:21:21 <7> Years ago before BSB west used to mean Bee within four hours
07:22:08 <Kat> UNNG GHG 18 nicknamed Marmots Tail - named by Linda!
07:22:13 <7> but that has changed
07:22:16 <CraigC> oh ok
07:22:48 <Kat> BSB somedays goes on all day sometimes

08:52:24 <Kat> Should have a Daisy soon
08:52:38 <TomK> 4,200 miles later...
08:52:58 <Kat> Did you have fun?
08:58:01 <TomK> Yes, but good to be home. 11 motels + Yell + my daughter's house in Phoenix = 13 different beds.
08:58:44 <TomK> Daisy?
08:58:59 <Kat> LOL - too many, always good to be home! I covered most of your 3 shifts and all was well
08:59:30 <TomK> hanks

09:05:44 <Kat> I'm leaving you Bee! LOL
09:05:56 <TomK> TYVM!
09:06:40 <TomK> 4 new states + Canada for my daughter.
09:10:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> The only reason that US 50 is the Loneliest road is they didn't find US 6. Did you do Rainbow Canyon?
09:13:08 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> And time to go to the Nevada Southern. bbl
09:13:54 <Kat> :thumbsup:
09:15:52 <TomK> No to both. Had to pick out a week trip from many possibilities. Will probably do NV SRR in October.
09:22:40 <TomK> I've done US 6 from I-15 to Bishop, CA a few times in the past, and from I-15 to I-70 on my way from Yell to Phoenix on this trip.
09:38:13 <TomK> OF window
09:42:25 <TomK> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, My son & I very interested in NV Southern RR, This trip was with my daughter and she picked NV Northern out of a list of 20 sights.
09:55:30 <TomK> VEC tells me the basin is closed from Castle down due to bear activity.
09:55:53 <TomK> Sow + cubs

10:18:29 <TomK> River?
10:28:25 <Carl> wind must be blowing left back there
10:29:54 <Carl> either that Or f&M si doing one of ots cycles
10:30:10 <TomK> Got the OF start from the VEC. I was making cuppa tay, counting on the gazers to enter it.
10:32:46 <Carl> yhat was just a bit early for riverside, might look in a few minutes to see
10:34:33 <TomK> lot of steam from behind the trees in that neighborhood.
10:36:17 <Carl> I think that is Riverside now the other must have been F&M
10:42:39 <TomK> I thought Riverside steam was to the right of the white trees at Grand.
10:44:41 <Carl> you are correct if F&M it would be closer to grand

17:00:39 <Michelle> Much needed, but still...it's snow!
17:01:33 <kiawe (at work)> We had a blizzared warning at the beginning of the month for the Big Island summits. Snow -- Hawaii - May. *shakes head again*

17:31:32 <Michelle> While you are watching the one on the left, the one one the right will sneak in and get you
17:33:24 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> asking for trouble
17:34:23 <Michelle> He has the "I'm not happy" look, just like Bee!:)
17:34:47 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> He's not happy
17:35:02 <Kat šŸ˜Ž> Kids there OMG
17:36:05 <Michelle> Honestly, I would not turn my back on him

17:59:58 <Michelle> There were some cabins available in June at Roosevelt just the other day.
18:03:17 <Michelle> Just looked, there are still a few available for June.
18:04:13 <Michelle> Almost every night in July Roosevelt is available
18:05:38 <8> I bet people are not used to it being open again
18:06:23 <8> Roosevelt is also out of the way for many tourists. I'm surprised wolf watchers have not scooped them up though
18:07:17 <8> did you check OF?
18:07:22 <Michelle> Usually it is booked solid, I have no idea
18:08:51 <Michelle> OF

19:47:37 <Kitt> So Castle was seen ie way before NPS prediction?
19:49:41 <Michelle> Yes.
19:50:23 <Kitt> I guess I haven't been paying attention to what its intervals have been
19:50:36 <Michelle> I think there was a GT prediction for around the same as NPS
19:50:46 <Kitt> Did it fix itself from last year when it was pulling longs
19:56:03 <Michelle> OF
19:56:55 <Kitt> yay

20:02:58 <Michelle> shadow and something behind
20:03:38 <Kitt> ok, thought it was a stick or something
