09:44:15 <KorbenC(3)> low pool, but sizzly
09:54:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Plop plop fizz fizz
09:55:25 <Kat> Hi Kevin
09:55:32 <KorbenC(3)> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
09:55:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
10:00:46 <Kat> Have a good drive Kevin!
10:00:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well there is that Perry Mason music
10:02:12 <Kat> :)
10:02:46 <Dave from B™> I think you should change your music to the "Rockford Files"
10:03:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They come on a 5
10:10:56 <Katie 🐻> :lol::lol::lol:
10:18:55 <Ryan> Sawmill start
10:52:42 <Dave from B™> I still can't believe Steamboat erupted yesterday
10:53:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You weren't there so why wouldn't it?
10:53:41 <KorbenC(3)> Yesterday was a Federal Holiday, so of course it would
10:54:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF
10:54:50 <KorbenC(3)> Sets it up for July 4th :)
10:56:44 <Dave from B™> I haven't been following SB much of late but looking at GT.....are durations getting shorter?
11:01:01 <DanS working> Last SB was shortest duration in over a year.
11:01:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It just wants to torment Dave.
11:02:19 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I know. The fact that Michelle and Becca haven't seen it also factors in
11:02:54 <KorbenC(3)> Dave from B™, are you gonna spend any time up there this trip as far as you know?
11:03:50 <Dave from B™> I don't know. It kind of depends what others are doing. I figure F&M is toast for awhile.
11:04:34 <Dave from B™> Besides, who doesn't like staring at dirt?
11:26:19 <Ryan> I spend a lot of time looking at dirt...
11:26:48 <Dave from B™> Yes, underground dirt:)
11:26:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I used to.
11:27:06 <Ryan> And above ground :)
11:27:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I knew a whole lot about different kinds of dirt.
11:30:07 <Dave from B™> This trip will be focused on gazers. there are a lot of people I haven't seen for 3 or more years
11:30:30 <Ryan> When are you going?
11:31:16 <Dave from B™> June 28 for 4 nights
11:31:38 <KorbenC(3)> Dave from B™, where are you spending the first night with Madison closed?
11:32:19 <Dave from B™> Rainbow Point near West
11:32:39 <KorbenC(3)> :thumbsup:
11:33:02 <KorbenC(3)> Dave, do you know who is going to be there that week?
11:33:29 <Dave from B™> lc, nellie, Kitt. Not sure of anyone else
11:33:54 <KorbenC(3)> Oh nice, maybe Kitt and I can finally meet
11:34:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Happy Bee
11:34:38 <Ryan> I am not sure what I would do if I was going to be in the park.
11:34:56 <KorbenC(3)> Ryan, get sucked in at F&M? :P
11:35:03 <Ryan> Really getting a bit old being shackled to the geyser basins.
11:35:23 <Ryan> I dont know I'd be sitting around F&M right now
11:36:03 <KorbenC(3)> yea but by next week the water level should be back to normal :)
11:36:33 <Ryan> First four years I was routinely visiting the park I was stuck with folks who would almost never leave the Upper Basin, then the next two trips I was stuck with the ball and chain that is Steamboat.
11:37:14 <Ryan> I'd wager to say I've spent upwards of 95% of my time in the park in the basins. I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen Yellowstone Lake. :(
11:38:23 <Dave from B™> I love the Lake. We stop at Gull Point every visit to the park if we are exiting via Cody; which we normally do.
11:38:44 <Ryan> Whenever I end up going back, I hope SB erupts the day before I get there and makes my choices easier.
11:38:52 <Dave from B™> Ice cream at the Lake Hamilton store is almost a requirement
11:39:15 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I kind of feel that way at times but I do want M&B to see SB
11:39:37 <KorbenC(3)> Ryan, yea, I feel the same
11:39:53 <Ryan> Yeah, Hope got the same deal. She is not very interested in sitting around any more. She had some nasty experiences at Norris.
11:40:16 <Ryan> Nasty enough that I think she is not very interested in waiting for almsot any geyser. Which makes me sad.
11:41:55 <Ryan> With three exceptions: Fountain, Old Faithful, and White Dome (which she calls "Harold and Kumar"), ha!
11:42:12 <Ryan> What's yalls favorite places outside of the basins?
11:43:41 <KorbenC(3)> Ryan, Fairy Falls, Lewis Lake, Hayden, Mt. Washburn, and Avalanche Peak
11:44:01 <Ryan> Fairy Falls feels like cheating ;)
11:44:31 <KorbenC(3)> Ryan, I guess Imperial is one of the reasons I love it so much, lol
11:44:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Canyon
11:44:46 <Ryan> I don't have any - never saw the rest of the park enough to really know what I do and dont like
11:45:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lone Star is fun.
11:45:11 <Ryan> Canyon is quite up there though
11:45:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mud Volcano
11:48:58 <AYates> I have fond memories of Tower Fall when you could still get out to the base, specimen ridge has a lot of interesting stuff as well
11:49:28 <Dave from B™> Lake Butte overlook near Lake, Lewis Lake to Shoshone Lake, Artist Pt, Upper Falls Brink, Slough Cr
11:49:41 <Ryan> I guess I did get a very intimate experience with parts of the Bechler region. That is a special place
11:50:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Loved the base of Tower Falls. NOT the same at the top.
11:50:13 <Dave from B™> I love Bechler, but I wasn't including backcountry in my list
11:50:37 <Dave from B™> Tower Falls base was so much fun. Heavy mist shower was fun
11:51:52 <Dave from B™> A really fun hike is Warm Springs Picnic Area to Pebble Creek campground...about 12 miles
11:51:54 <Ryan> My Yellowstone experiences can be summed up as: geysers or backcountry.
11:53:07 <KorbenC(3)> Admittedly, I have not left the basins in the last 6 of my 10 total trips :(
11:53:58 <Dave from B™> The Madison River near Madison CG is also a fun place top relax
11:55:57 <Ryan> I will be taking notes for future trips.
11:56:37 <Dave from B™> YNP on my bucket list: Thorofare, Union Falls, Mr Bubbles again, Monument GB
11:57:51 <Ryan> Union is worth it. There are some other nice waterfalls around there I can give you some pointers to if you're interested.
11:58:12 <Ryan> With the addition of a couple miles of off trail excursions you can see some really spectacular stuff.
11:58:21 <KorbenC(3)> Agree with Ryan
11:58:55 <Ryan> I'd prefer to keep the details off here though. It is all legal, my concern is more about resource impact.
11:59:01 <Dave from B™> I've done the Lone Star to Bechler RS trip. SO MANY AWESOME waterfalls!!!
11:59:12 <Dave from B™> And berries:) and more berries:)
11:59:21 <Ryan> Thats the section I have not done.
12:00:00 <Ryan> When done right, by going from Flagg Ranch to Union you can see seven waterfalls. Two are over 160ft tall, and four are thermal fed.
12:00:10 <Dave from B™> Most of the beauty is once you drop down into the Bechler
12:00:25 <Ryan> We did it as a two nighter, but I know folks who have done it as a day trip. I think a day trip wouldn't be possible for me,
12:00:30 <Dave from B™> Ryan, what is hike mileage on that trip?
12:00:57 <Ryan> I want to say its in the 10-15mi range, with about 33% of that off trail bushwhacking.
12:01:00 <Betty> hi all
12:01:35 <Ryan> Thats an estimation based on a probably embellished memory and tempered with the knowledge it has been embellished.
12:01:51 <Ryan> That said, it can be done either very easily, or very terribly. We did it very terribly lol
12:02:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty
12:02:46 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵, Ryan, Dave from B™, KorbenC(3)
12:02:53 <Ryan> Hi there
12:03:09 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
12:03:16 <KorbenC(3)> Hey Betty
12:20:59 <Betty> doggies on the hill
12:25:34 <Betty> OF
12:25:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF
12:31:27 <27> time for Grand close up?
12:32:03 <27> thanks
12:33:19 <27> nice last day for the in park people...
12:34:44 <27> still no grand
12:34:57 <27> nice to have prompt Turban times
12:35:36 <27> didn't OF just erupt?
12:37:46 <KorbenC(3)> yes
12:38:17 <27> I thought I saw it as I checked in here. Not on GT
12:38:32 <KorbenC(3)> Can you put it in?
12:38:42 <27> I'm not on GT
12:38:50 <27> and do not have a time
12:39:07 <KorbenC(3)> was 1225 I think
12:39:29 <27> I thought cam op entered OF times...?
12:39:33 <KorbenC(3)> 1224*
12:39:51 <KorbenC(3)> I put it in
12:39:58 <27> :)
12:40:06 <KorbenC(3)> did GT get rid of seconds on the android app?
12:43:29 <27> I think Grand will have a Grand start when it does erupt
12:43:53 <ynpvisitor11> wouldnt that be grand
12:44:00 <27> maybe at 1250?
12:44:49 <KorbenC(3)> ynpvisitor11, it would be a Grand Grand for sure
12:45:39 <KorbenC(3)> No West Bubblers yet on Bee
12:46:06 <Dave from B™> 70% grand starts (35 of last 50 eruptions with start data)
12:46:43 <27> I hope we get to see it.
12:47:14 <Dave from B™> I'm sure Kevin knows when to jump back
12:47:32 <KorbenC(3)> Should be about time for another Turban, I trust Kevin to give us a good balance between BH and Grabd :)
12:48:29 <Dave from B™> No Aurum recorded this year:(
12:49:04 <27> if all that rain couldn't get it going, I do not think there is much hope for summer
12:50:47 <KorbenC(3)> There is always hope :P
12:50:54 <Dave from B™> I can't to smell the geyser basin!
12:50:58 <Dave from B™> wait*
12:52:21 <27> Grand is being stubborn
12:52:34 <27> I wonder if Jim S stayed around
12:52:52 <ynpvisitor11> Dave from B™, you smell like a geyser?
12:53:26 <Dave from B™> not yet!
12:53:43 <27> Daisy
12:53:51 <27> ie
12:54:31 <27> someone leaving Grand...
13:03:40 <KorbenC(3)> well good afternoon Bee, are you thinking about doing something?
13:07:09 <27> no F & M's, erratic BH's, long Grand intervals...your basin time will be a bit different this time Korben
13:08:18 <KorbenC(3)> meh, as long as I get a single BH my trip will be a success :)
13:08:32 <AYates> More time to catch Lion initials
13:08:49 <KorbenC(3)> AYates, I am hoping for a Dome initial this year :)
13:09:20 <27> meanwhile at Grand...
13:09:37 <AYates> If you got 2 weeks now is the time to try to get one
13:09:38 <27> another Turban, no Grand. Long interval.
13:09:41 <KorbenC(3)> Turban 1307, maybe next cycle
13:09:59 <KorbenC(3)> At least we have Sawmill to keep everyone at Grand entertained!
13:11:12 <AYates> I thought I caught a Dome initial one time, it actually had been going for a bit but my GT hadn't updated and I paused to admire it while walking to Aurum, radio died, missed Aurum completely
13:12:02 <Dave from B™> I hope to spend some good time at Grotto Group
13:12:42 <AYates> Not a bad place to sit for F&M
13:13:00 <AYates> Much better shade
13:23:20 <Ryan> Gotta earn an eruption by baking yourself on the benches through 10 days of Angle not turning off.
13:24:01 <Ryan> Actually, no, you don't. Anyway you get to see it is worth it. But that was a fond memory.
13:24:38 <AYates> I've already done that plenty, from 2005 to last year I'd put in a lot of days particularly in 2012 - I estimate somewhere around 20 spread out over the years and got my first last year
13:25:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Grand
13:25:30 <27> 20 days in 16 years does not sound like too many...
13:25:34 <27> yay
13:26:10 <27> nice start
13:26:41 <Betty> yeah
13:27:33 <Dave from B™> I bet there is someone out there who has invested 200 hours at SB with no eruption
13:28:01 <Ryan> Yeah, I never tallied mine, but I have probably spent a cumulative total of 30-40 days at Fan and Mortar and have seen four eruptions, three from the start.
13:28:10 <AYates> It has to be active to put in time, and when you're 1600 miles away from the park you don't really get to choose when it's active. Particularly when your 2005 saw it go inactive for years
13:28:43 <AYates> My first SB was about 110 hours consecutively
13:29:30 <Dave from B™> I can't handle more than 2 days in a row at is draining. It took me 80 to see my SB
13:30:33 <AYates> I thought it would be my only shot, so 4.5 days it was
13:32:20 <Dave from B™> I'm glad you got is worth the wait
13:32:35 <AYates> I have 4 but I thought it would be my only shot
13:32:39 <AYates> The next 3 were easier
13:33:03 <Ryan> I just considered waiting to be part of the deal.
13:33:45 <Ryan> I never really considered it waiting though. I was fascinated by its behavior and its activity regardless if it was building into a major, or not.
13:34:02 <Dave from B™> Yeah, there were plenty of things to watch
13:34:39 <Ryan> I think the main problem became that to really see it you needed to be at the platforms, which quickly became unbearable for a lot of reasons.
13:35:12 <AYates> Honestly I felt like I had a better feel for what it was doing at Decker than on the platform
13:35:24 <Dave from B™> Yeah, fielding the same questions every 5 minutes is fun
13:35:26 <Ryan> Don't say that too loudly. ;)
13:35:43 <Dave from B™> Good afternoon CraigC
13:35:57 <27> long 1 b
13:36:19 <Ryan> I have significant sensory problems with noise, and to an extent touch and crowds. Waiting on the SB platforms was absolute hell and put me in a really bad position.
13:36:29 <CraigC> Dave from B™, howdy again
13:37:05 <Dave from B™> Craig, I'm starting to feel the pull of SB for our next trip
13:37:23 <Ryan> Over the years waiting on the BW for almost any geyser has become nearly impossible if there is a crowd. I just can't handle the sensory overload.
13:37:42 <CraigC> AYates, that is interesting, cuz I spent many days at steerage and radio'd to platforms for interpretations of minors, as I felt less in touch down there
13:37:47 <Dave from B™> Craig has spent so much time there, there is a plaque on one of the benches
13:38:07 <27> hey, he had his own chair
13:38:09 <Dave from B™> Ryan, being deaf in 1 ear really helps that:)
13:38:24 <Dave from B™> Except others always wanted to sit in it!
13:38:30 <CraigC> lol
13:38:40 <Ryan> Medical THC helps even more, Dave.
13:38:43 <CraigC> I had forgot about that guy...
13:38:44 <AYates> I get that, from Decker you get a feel of how high each vent is that you can't really perceive from the platform
13:39:21 <27> medical THC not legal in Yellowstone...
13:39:31 <AYates> You take the angle out of the equation and you just watch the minors
13:39:42 <Ryan> Yeah, 27, thats the problem for me and quite a number of other people.
13:41:18 <27> I'm sure a lot more THC is in the park with MT being legal now
13:41:57 <Ryan> I understand not smoking it, but I'd be shocked if anyone knew someone else either had edibles, a pill, or the tincture.
13:42:04 <27> BH reminds me of Pink Cone with it's tiny blues above the cone
13:42:36 <27> blurbs not blues
13:43:17 <Ryan> I abhor public smoking in places that clearly aren't meant for it.
13:43:39 <27> is anywhere meant for public smoking? Big no for me
13:44:04 <Ryan> I dont think it should be.
13:44:48 <Ryan> I think its obnoxious at best, and for the effects secondhand smoking can have on others I think its a violation of their personal autonomy.
13:46:42 <Dave from B™> Ryan, I agree. I cringe with that smell. It is common in RV parks when we travel and I hate it.
13:47:33 <Ryan> It travels a long way
13:49:40 <Dave from B™> At least those in my poker group, use methods that isn't smoke filled
13:49:47 <Dave from B™> aren't*
13:49:57 <CraigC> AYates, when do you plan to visit again?
13:50:34 <Ryan> Hopefully the non-vaporized forms become a bit more socially and legally acceptable. I feel for a lot of folks who find relief only with that stuff.
13:51:36 <AYates> Was going to come in September but I think I'm skipping this year
13:52:13 <AYates> My rental car options were limited and I'm not making the 40 hour drive with gas prices the way they are
13:52:35 <Ryan> I know one person who is mostly metal in their back and suffer chronic severe pain from it. It is the only relief they reliably find.
13:53:05 <Ryan> Where are you coming from A?
13:53:46 <AYates> KY
13:54:21 <Ryan> Is it realy 40hrs?
13:54:28 <CraigC> AYates, I doubt I will go this year either because of gas prices
13:54:33 <Ryan> Nevermind, I guess it is.
13:54:47 <Ryan> I had the number 33 in my head, but thats from Annapolis to Custer, SD.
13:55:05 <AYates> Yeah and I'm partial like you are to Baker's and being that they are going to limit traffic, not worth the headache
13:55:56 <CraigC> might be better for me to sell my trailer and book cabins for future visits
13:58:30 <Dave from B™> CraigC, when you do that figure 250 a night for rooms in the park...that's where they are headed in a few years
13:59:42 <Dave from B™> Sharing rooms can help
13:59:53 <Ryan> Aren't they already there?
13:59:59 <Betty> I have already more than 300 in West
14:00:19 <Ryan> That's the point where I tell people I will pay half the rate just to sleep on the floor, or to car camp in the parking spot.
14:01:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am just glad I am on this end of the life cycle. In 10 years nothing will matter.
14:01:58 <Betty> OF
14:03:36 <Dave from B™> I still thinking camping is the way to go when gas prices go down.
14:04:33 <Ryan> Lots of freedom is afforded when you hit the balance between mobility and comfort, Dave.
14:05:10 <Ryan> With a couple extra add-ons to increase some external storage space I find camping within the Outback to be really nice.
14:05:48 <Dave from B™> My blood pressure drops the minute I get in my RV. I'm not joking
14:06:02 <Ryan> I believe it
14:06:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Look at a terardrop trailer Ryan
14:06:25 <Ryan> I am, Kevin. $$$ is the issue right now. :(
14:07:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They were popular when I was a kid. Many home made versions
14:07:54 <Dave from B™> I see a lot of those in campgrounds
14:08:18 <Ryan> If I had the space to build it I would.
14:08:49 <Ryan> I mean, I guess I do. I dont have the tools. If I could find a barebones or empty one I could easily retrofit it though
14:11:11 <Ryan> Anyone here a fan of Werner Herzog?
14:13:07 <Dave from B™> Since I don't know who that is, my answer is no
14:13:55 <Ryan> Filmmaker, makes some fine documentaries.
14:14:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice splashes
14:14:33 <CraigC> grizzley man
14:14:33 <Ryan> Recently released one on Maurice and Katia Krafft, two people who have heavily inspired me.
14:14:54 <Ryan> Very worth watching. I have not yet seen that one, Craig.
14:14:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Doesn't Herzog fix broken train tracks?
14:14:56 <KorbenC(3)> wow splash Bee!
14:16:33 <Ryan> They were French volcanologists who became world renowned for the videos and photos they produced. Eventually they turned into av full time photographer/videographer couple just about volcanoes.
14:17:05 <Ryan> They died in 1991 in an eruption, and their archives of hundreds of hours of video and thousands of images stayed mostly under wraps until very recently.
14:17:15 <Dave from B™> I'll have to check them out. We don't watch many documentaries
14:18:06 <Ryan> It is very surreal. A documentary about them kind of set me on a path when I was very young. And that documentary is all I really knew about them. When they released this one that talked more about their lives, I have found the parallels to be a bit startling.
14:18:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well this is sort of like a volcano:
14:21:43 <Ryan> It shows Katia Krafft walking around the base of Lone Star Geyser during a major eruption :P
14:22:03 <CraigC> Dave from B™, then don't start watching all the ones on Netflix about serial killers..... they sucked me in LOL
14:22:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Locking up your corn flakes now Craig?
14:23:27 <CraigC> chocolate chex, thank you :)
14:24:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am more into Crunch Berries.
14:24:19 <CraigC> Dave from B™, probably my favorite was about the Unabomber
14:24:52 <Dave from B™> Yes, the infamous Montana event
14:25:03 <CraigC> the dumbest smart person..... just leave me alone, I want to be alone, alone and mailing bombs, so I can be alone
14:25:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is a difference between intelligent and smart.
14:26:17 <Dave from B™> Yep, there sure is
14:27:04 <CraigC> he was smart enough to get away with it a long time, but not smart enough to consider what would happen if he didn't
14:29:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BH is being a real tease today.
14:30:16 <KorbenC(3)> Kevin, how long will you be camop for?
14:30:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 1600
14:30:43 <KorbenC(3)> Cool, so BH in the next 90min :)
14:31:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not sure who is on deck. Everybody is on vacation.
14:32:00 <Dave from B™> Who is on first!
14:32:30 <CraigC> :i::i:
14:32:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe the loafing is better here Dave.
14:32:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you heard that one?
14:33:00 <Dave from B™> no, I haven't
14:33:10 <Dave from B™> Bread?
14:33:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
14:34:57 <KorbenC(3)> C'mon already BH
14:37:32 <Dave from B™> That's hilarious.
14:38:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One of my favorites.
14:39:48 <Dave from B™> They are quite the pair
14:40:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And you can listen to their stuff over and over and it is just as funny.
14:49:48 <Bob> Return of the peeps tomorrow.
14:49:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy
14:51:23 <Dave from B™> What time do they show up on our webcam? 830?
14:53:32 <KorbenC(3)> My bet is 0851 :)
14:55:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Depends on when they open the gate.
14:56:46 <Dave from B™> I would expect some of the longest lines we have ever seen tomorrow...especially if odd license plates get in the way
14:57:47 <Bob> Six dollar gas may thin the herd.
15:00:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Splash!
15:07:07 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat. Have a great evening everyone!
15:07:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Later Dave
15:09:09 <Ryan> West Bubblers are heating up
15:15:21 <Betty> headed out too, night all
15:17:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:26:00 <Bob> Human indicators. A good sign.
15:30:13 <KorbenC(3)> Hi Greg
15:30:20 <KorbenC(3)> West Bubblers trying to start per in basin
15:30:29 <Greg (working)> Hi Korben
15:53:06 <Greg (working)> Hi Kevin, how ya been?
15:57:46 <Greg 🤠> Let me know when the controls have been released. Anything upcoming not on the predictions list?
15:58:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have at it Greg
15:58:31 <KorbenC(3)> Beehive might be soon, Daisy here in about an hour, Lion should be soon
15:58:39 <Greg 🤠> Hope I remember haha.
15:58:58 <Greg 🤠> Thanks Korben
15:59:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Korben covered it
15:59:38 <KorbenC(3)> Kevin L™ 🌵, I have experience :)
15:59:54 <Greg 🤠> 16 and you are saying that?
15:59:58 <Greg 🤠> Impressive
16:00:27 <KorbenC(3)> I didn't specify how much experience now did I? :P
16:00:49 <Greg 🤠> Nope, but you are good at it.
16:02:03 <KorbenC(3)> Greg 🤠, thats why I keep saying they should let me drive the cam
16:02:42 <Greg 🤠> Kevin, going north on US89 in Utah, there were several places to stay that were converted cabooses
16:03:55 <KorbenC(3)> Is that a person on the left side of the screen laying down?
16:05:24 <Greg 🤠> Yup
16:05:37 <KorbenC(3)> :)
16:06:04 <KorbenC(3)> BH has swallowed them whole
16:06:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave broke him
16:06:16 <KorbenC(3)> Wait a minute, thats Tara :P
16:08:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you see they installed a railcam in Kingman Greg?
16:08:26 <Greg 🤠> No I did not, kool.
16:10:18 <Greg 🤠> I do not like the new cam at Flag, quality is not good
16:10:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just came on line 2 days ago. BNSF had a good time that day on the transcon. Track got washed out, coupler broke, and a fatal car vs train. Chief was 11 hours late into LA.
16:11:07 <Greg 🤠> Yikes
16:11:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They move it around too much. It is sort of like ours at night where it won't focus properly in the dark.
16:11:32 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
16:11:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is Kingman:
16:12:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Only one PTZ cam but beats nothing.
16:17:20 <Bob> Beehive doesn't swallow anything. It only spits things out.
16:22:42 <KorbenC(3)> Greg, see BH note
16:23:32 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
16:23:41 <KorbenC(3)> Lion also is trying to start according to in basin
16:32:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Needs a new battery
16:33:21 <Bob> Needs a new boiler.
16:37:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We got a depression.
16:38:24 <Bob> You will get over it.
16:38:35 <Greg 🤠> haha
16:39:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just nice to see something on the Hill that isn't dead.
16:39:25 <Greg 🤠> Right.
16:40:27 <Greg 🤠> We never made it to the hill/basins. We were "asked" to leave the park on Monday. 5 days early. Krazy weather for sure
16:40:50 <KorbenC(3)> Greg 🤠, :(
16:42:06 <Greg 🤠> Hats off to the rangers and workers, Xantera employees, they made a huge job look easy, they did it and some visitors were yelling at them.
16:46:11 <Greg 🤠> Looks like Linda made it to Zion today
16:46:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice!
16:52:47 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
16:52:50 <Greg 🤠> :daisy:
16:55:02 <Ryan> Bank ie
17:12:33 <DanS working> How full will those benches be tomorrow?:D
17:12:52 <Greg 🤠> Standing room only
17:13:20 <DanS working> yup
17:16:08 <Greg 🤠> of
17:18:19 <Kevin iPad> Are you back home Greg?
17:19:04 <Greg 🤠> Yes, after we were asked to leave YNP, we could not find a place to stay close to YNP, so we headed hom the next day, drove straight through
17:20:01 <Greg 🤠> Came home and had a stayca with my bride and hide out. Did't go back to work until today
17:20:17 <Kevin iPad> Total bummer. And with these insane gas prices to boot.
17:21:11 <Greg 🤠> We paid $4.64 in Jackson, high was $4.89 on the trip until we fueled in AZ $5.59.
17:21:24 <Greg 🤠> Even Kingamn was only $4.89
17:21:54 <Greg 🤠> We had to detour as high 89 was cloed north of Flag due a huge forest fire.
17:27:35 <Kevin iPad> We are about $5.40 here.
17:27:52 <Ryan> 4.89 in Annapolis and SW PA
17:28:06 <Greg 🤠> I did not have your cell number, we would have called as we sent thru Henderson
17:28:32 <Kevin iPad> I have to drive to cartoon city in a couple weeks. Not looking forward to that.
17:28:57 <Greg 🤠> Our new Telluride ave 28.8 for the entire trip, very pleased with that
17:30:31 <Kevin iPad> You probably passed right near my house. I live just off I-11 north of Railroad Pass.
17:30:54 <Greg 🤠> Yes sir
17:43:50 <Ryan> Could we swing to the hill?
17:44:01 <Ryan> Idont think the in basin observer is there anymore.
17:44:04 <Greg 🤠> I did
17:44:09 <Greg 🤠> Long lag
17:44:16 <Greg 🤠> haha
17:44:28 <KorbenC(3)> Ryan, he is there still
17:46:31 <Ryan> Ah I was thinking about someone else
17:46:37 <Ryan> didnt know there was two
17:46:59 <KorbenC(3)> three actually :P
17:55:58 <KorbenC(3)> That was almost a Lion ini
18:10:22 <Kevin iPad> Even the doggies got bored and left.
18:11:30 <Greg 🤠> It was so strange, Sunday the 12th, we noticed the animals moving away from the water. They knew what was about to take place.
18:14:42 <Greg 🤠> I wonder what time cars will line up tonight
18:19:09 <Greg 🤠>
18:19:34 <Greg 🤠> Employees and deliveries only
18:28:11 <Greg 🤠> a few splashes
18:28:40 <Greg 🤠> getting better
18:30:50 <Greg 🤠> Wonder whats up - "Please do not try to hike Mt. Washburn tonight!! We just got an update from NPS that Dunraven Pass will be closing tonight and that trail is off limits" Bears?
18:32:45 <Kevin iPad> Road repairs? They go faster with no traffic.
18:33:12 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
18:33:14 <KorbenC(3)> Greg 🤠, thats weird since Dunraven has been closed since the flooding started and is gonna be closed for a while
18:36:37 <Greg 🤠> Employees have been hiking the trails.
18:45:21 <Mario> whoa! did anyone else see that bird just graze the camera?
18:45:33 <Greg 🤠> yup
18:53:47 <7> Canyon to Tower will be closed now too, for at least two weeks, so they probably want to clear everyone out of the area.
18:54:08 <Greg 🤠> makes sense
18:54:37 <7> it's nice they let employees hike up there while the park was closed
18:54:53 <Greg 🤠> OF time
18:55:23 <7> last time for a while the bw will be this empty at 1900
18:56:28 <7> looks like a perfect evening there
18:56:43 <Greg 🤠> Yup.
18:56:59 <Greg 🤠> A few updates in the alert page, "
18:58:13 <Greg 🤠> Nice shadows
18:59:07 <KorbenC(3)> Lion ini 1855
18:59:29 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
19:07:17 <Kevin iPad> Well you got Lion, now you need to turn on Beehive.
19:11:49 <KorbenC(3)> I have a feeling we missed daisy
19:12:22 <Greg 🤠> Probably, but I'll wait a few more mins
19:20:36 <Greg 🤠> On the canyon cam right now, great light
19:26:45 <KorbenC(3)> No Close to Cone, West and South Bubbler have non existent water levels
19:34:24 <Kitt> Korben how do you know about Close to Cone water levels
19:34:37 <Kitt> or did someone in basin tell you that information
19:35:02 <Greg 🤠> Korben has peeps
19:35:19 <Kitt> ok, because I know we can't see it with the cam
19:35:37 <KorbenC(3)> Kitt, not entirely true, when it is erupting you can see it erupting
19:36:02 <KorbenC(3)> At least assuming the light is right, the reflection off the water has made it show up on the cam a few times :)
19:36:09 <Kitt> ?you can see the water coming out of the hole?
19:36:37 <KorbenC(3)> Kitt, I have a few times seen water coming out of the hole enough to see it
19:36:50 <KorbenC(3)> Kitt, it sounds like we will be in YNP the same time this year, maybe we will run into eachother
19:36:59 <Kitt> Ok, I thought it was behind the cone
19:41:12 <KorbenC(3)> Kitt, are you gonna be spending a bunch of time at BH on your trip?
19:41:24 <Kitt> probably not
19:41:53 <Kitt> I have learned to be happy seeing Beehive erupt as long as it is in my sight
19:42:15 <KorbenC(3)> :thumbsup:
19:43:07 <Kitt> I don't expect to see F & M either, since the river will probably still be high
19:43:45 <Kitt> just stopped in to check on Bee
19:43:48 <Kitt> night all
19:43:55 <KorbenC(3)> bye
19:44:00 <Greg 🤠> night Kitt
19:44:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
19:50:35 <Greg 🤠> going to park the cam here for a bit, waiting on Grand, going to grab a bite to eat. RBR
20:06:31 <Ryan> Churn?
20:07:08 <Ryan> Huh, could have swore i saw Churn do something. Oh well.
20:07:33 <KorbenC(3)> Bulger!
20:07:58 <KorbenC(3)> West Bubblers still not ie, South Bubbler has a bit of water, Close to Cone bliupping
20:08:12 <KorbenC(3)> :grand:
20:08:16 <KorbenC(3)> Riverside
20:11:36 <KorbenC(3)> OBLONG
20:12:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably have BH too.
20:12:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Greg should have had dinner sooner.
20:15:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like a good Oblong
20:16:09 <Ryan> Is it frowned upon to move the controls, Kevin? :P
20:17:24 <Ryan> Well, enjoy Beehive. I am off to watch the Krafft documentary one more time before the rental ends.
20:17:49 <Ryan> 2B
20:17:54 <Ryan> With a very strong Oblong
20:18:36 <Kevin iPad> Unless it is specified yes, but I am working on something so not at the computer most of the time.
20:19:25 <Ryan> Ah gotcha. Well, something around Sawmill is coming alive. Maybe we will see Uncertain again.
20:21:04 <Ryan> Ha, I do indeed see steam from Uncertain
20:22:47 <Ryan> That is a very big Sprinkler!
20:25:18 <Ryan> And I do believe Slurp is doing something, too.
20:25:25 <Ryan> Alright, I am actually leaving now.
20:27:49 <Greg 🤠> OF time
20:28:07 <Greg 🤠> Love the shadows and light
20:28:55 <Greg 🤠> static cam is WOW

21:17:50 <Greg 🤠> no prob
21:17:59 <KorbenC(3)> thanks Greg!
21:17:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night

22:22:00 <Greg 🤠> Can you see BH on the screen?
22:22:19 <Bill> yes
22:22:31 <Greg 🤠> Thank you.
22:23:09 <Greg 🤠> Thanks for tagging along tonight, have a great night, lets hope that the crowds behave themselves the next few days.
22:23:24 <Greg 🤠> The controls have been released, enjoy and keep smiling
22:23:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thanks. I don't see any issues other than the normal ones.
22:28:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow. Big storm on the Kansas City cam right now.
