06:22:28 <CraigC> possible grotto ie
06:41:44 <Vog> Guess we know now that Jim's license is odd :p
06:44:52 <Vog> If you notice when they open the near lane could you note it here? Multitasking and not watching 100%
07:06:45 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:07:03 <Dave from B™> Lines already?
07:08:17 <CraigC> no thanks, I gave up coke last year
07:09:03 <Dave from B™> How about Pepsi, then?
07:09:19 <CraigC> :)
07:13:31 <Dave from B™> So, what will Jim do every other day he is not in the park?
07:14:33 <007> Do we know when they coned the inbound lanes?
07:16:26 <DanS working> Vog, close lane opened at o715.
07:17:35 <Vog> Just saw that thx. I think the far one was about 0700
07:17:58 <DanS working> Yes
07:18:06 <Dave from B™> When did they start manning the gate this morning?
07:18:14 <Vog> Could depend on the end of the line or could depend on staff showing up
07:18:45 <Vog> But all 4 open at 0715 is a good time to remember
07:18:57 <CraigC> is that oblong
07:19:40 <DanS working> Looks like
07:19:59 <Vog> Now we just need reports from farther back since it will look the same from this angle
07:20:06 <CraigC> I was checking another browser tab, just returned to see that huge plume
07:21:26 <DanS working> Looked up and saw about the same time...
07:23:23 <CraigC> In the Scramble for a Campsite, Everyone Deserves an Equal Chance:
07:29:09 <Dave from B™> There is some truth to that, CraigC. However, anyone who plans ahead is better off. Some can plan ahead better than others. Those who live paycheck to paycheck are not thinking about vacations for next year.
07:30:25 <Dave from B™> I see the same thing at work. We have a vacation calendar in our office. When the 2023 goes up in August, about a third of my staff will start asking for dates off. The other 2/3 do it in 2023 and then get mad when there days are taken.
07:30:30 <Ryan> Good morning.
07:30:51 <Dave from B™> Morning Ryan
07:32:02 <Ryan> I was in that 2/3 for a while, Dave.
07:32:34 <Ryan> Hard to plan that far out for so many people. They deserve a chance to get out for a while, too.
07:33:06 <Dave from B™> Yep. I see many reservation systems now going 3-6 months out instead of a year or two
07:33:38 <CraigC> seems like there are way more options to find a way based upon how much money people have
07:33:53 <Ryan> I dont presume to have a good idea to fix that, though.
07:34:31 <Ryan> I think a closer time range and a higher ratio of walk-ins would help.
07:36:23 <Dave from B™> It seems FCFS is on the way out. I don't think that helps the situation.
07:37:10 <CraigC> IMO, a possible solution, is higher taxes on wealth, using it for more campgrounds all over. There was never a shortage of places to find a spot when I was a kid, and we weren't rich, far from it.
07:38:32 <Ryan> I think FCFS helps to an extent. Or perhaps a final round like two weeks out or something.
07:39:56 <Ryan> I personally have not been able to plan ahead more than about two months in advance for nearly two years now. There are many things I could afford to do, but I could not possibly know that until very close to the date I was going to do it.
07:40:24 <Ryan> If that involved anhy kind of staying in a National Park, anywhere, I am screwed. I can't even go to Assateague Island and its an hour away.
07:40:27 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I like that idea better than raising prices so lower income can't afford to camp. COVID has increased people's desires to travel and enjoy life; I don't think that is going away
07:41:46 <Ryan> Be right back, shower and coffee time.
07:46:02 <Dave from B™> CraigC, I'm all for making it a fair system but I will take advantage of every tool to try to find a spot, including using Campnab. (I did type campnap first:D)
07:46:02 <CraigC> let's be honest, we are fairly spoiled. We only went to YNP like every 3 or 4 years growing up. We would go to Jackson ever Labor Day, and go see the tetons. But now some of us are spending 20 to 100 days in the park every dang year
07:49:02 <Dave from B™> Yes, Craig, we do have it good. My wife and I took high sachool students on a 3 day day hiking trip to YNP 3 times during her teaching career in the 90's. Kids interviewed for the trip. I bet 40% of the kids had NEVER been to Yellowstone and we are 3 hours away.
07:49:23 <CraigC> then I have conversation with the owner of the car repair shop that has a very large sucessful business, and he tells me he has never been to YNP. 4 hours away. wth??? :)
07:50:12 <Dave from B™> Yep. I had neighbors asking why do you go to YNP all the time? What is there? Some people value travel; many don't EVEN if they can afford it.
07:51:02 <CraigC> I believe it is about familiarity. It is a lot easier to go back to somewhere that you have already experienced
07:52:47 <CraigC> my daughter's friend had never been, and her family had good money, so we brought her with us in 2015, I think.... and now she comes with her b/f friend all the time
07:52:58 <Dave from B™> Yes, it is. I do enjoying see new places but there is something about going back to places you are familiar with. Planning to visit somewhere you have never been is much more difficult.
07:55:05 <Dave from B™> We seem to be the distant family YNP resource. We have taken a couple of groups thru for their first trip to YNP. Others, we have advised where to go.
07:55:18 <CraigC> daisy
07:55:44 <Dave from B™> And, some don't listen and book at the last minute and pay 400 plus for a room in Jackson or Bozeman...dumb dumb dumb
07:55:53 <CraigC> lol
07:59:55 <Dave from B™> I didn't get an answer yesterday from you. How long do you ride with Murphy and who gets tired first?
08:00:12 <Dave from B™> Is he leashed or does he follow you?
08:13:31 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I have Murphy on a harness and carry a leash around my neck for when we see other dogs. He gets tired way before I do. He runs ahead of me.
08:14:46 <CraigC> yesterday we went just over 5 miles. He usually does just fine with 5 to 7 miles, but wore out around 4 miles on the way back and we had to go really slow the last half mile. Lots of breaks next to the creek.
08:15:20 <Ryan> Reading through what I missed: in my darkest times certain places become refuges to heal and recover. Yellowstone was one of those places.
08:15:55 <Ryan> Which is why I kept going back. But even one week a year was really pushing the limits of what I could do financially and logistically.
08:15:55 <Katie 🐻> Good morning
08:15:59 <Ryan> So I hide in caves.
08:16:01 <Ryan> Morning Katie
08:16:06 <CraigC> Murphy still seems more tired today than usual, so I am going to go for a ride without him today.
08:16:09 <Dave from B™> Yeah, dogs are on their own time clock. A walk with our dogs is not any sort of fitness workout.
08:16:31 <CraigC> Katie 🐻, howdy
08:16:42 <Dave from B™> Morning Katie
08:17:42 <CraigC> he would easily outwalk me. When we go biking, he runs all out, he is so manic and excited about running LOL
08:18:27 <CraigC> if I stop to talk to anyone, he gets mad and starts biking my shirt or gloves trying to pull me away
08:18:33 <Dave from B™> haha. We have backpacks for our dogs when we are riding our bikes. They love it; it is like sticking their head out a car window.
08:18:33 <CraigC> biting
08:18:50 <Dave from B™> It's a good way for him to get exercise
08:22:46 <Katie 🐻> I went to make coffee while OF was in eruption window. Anyone note time?
08:23:46 <CraigC> now
08:23:55 <Katie 🐻> :lol:
08:24:01 <CraigC> :)
08:24:48 <KorbenC> Now is 1819 :)
08:25:02 <CraigC> has it erupted or not, I left
08:25:02 <Katie 🐻> 0819?
08:25:19 <KorbenC> Yes, very end of the minute
08:26:08 <CraigC> KorbenC, would you entertain a simple and honest yes/no question? (besides this one)
08:26:18 <KorbenC> Of course
08:26:30 <CraigC> is Art P also Jarno?
08:26:36 <KorbenC> No
08:26:48 <CraigC> how are you sure?
08:27:09 <KorbenC> Jarno and I have been talking
08:27:12 <Katie 🐻> I just love it when the cam goes auto pilot. Not. But that time I just sat back since it wasn't quite a dizzying speed to see what it would do
08:30:21 <Ryan> Craig, it is Art Peterson
08:30:30 <Ryan> Source: Their GT profile
08:31:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Is the cam being a pain today Katie?
08:31:20 <KorbenC> Ryan, yes, but I don't think anybody here has actually seen him on the chat, or knows who he is. Whether or not he is Jarno has crossed my mind too.
08:31:36 <Katie 🐻> Kevin L™ 🌵, Just took itself for a spin, but otherwise okay - but I've only been on 15 minutes or so
08:31:49 <CraigC> I've looked at the GT profile, doesn;t mean it isn't someone else
08:32:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It booted me a few times yesterday Katie so I was wondering.
08:32:26 <CraigC> I was curious why there were no more Jarno entries when I cam back to visit chat
08:32:27 <Ryan> That name soudns vaguely familiar from the number of names I heard about in the history of gazing
08:33:19 <Ryan> I think I heard the name Art Peterson before the time of Korben, Craig, and Jarno ;) But I could be mistaken.
08:34:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think I have seen Art P posts from in basin.
08:34:59 <CraigC> oh well, nothing to make any deal about.... just a minor curiosity
08:35:03 <Katie 🐻> I think he's also a researcher - wasn't he one of the ones doing stuff 'round Lion a couple months ago?
08:35:28 <Ryan> Katie, thats where the name comes from. In my recollection at least.
08:38:02 <KorbenC> Hi Art (Art-P?)
08:38:19 <Art> No, OG Art
08:38:32 <KorbenC> lol :)
08:38:37 <Art> This Art P person has caused a good amount of inbasin confusion lol
08:38:45 <Art> Like that's not me!
08:38:56 <KorbenC> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
08:39:16 <CraigC> change to "Art notP"
08:39:32 <Katie 🐻> Ugh!
08:40:09 <Art> Just dropped into ask how the West entrance has been, busy day at work so haven't been able to keep an eye on it
08:40:22 <Art> I did check at like 5-6am and it looked staffed
08:40:41 <KorbenC> Art, its crowded, but every now and then I can see the end of the line
08:41:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sun tornado:
08:44:18 <Art> Initial reports out of the park are that it's pretty quiet once you get through the gate
08:47:18 <Art> Oh wow I can see the end of the line now as well
08:47:43 <Art> I'm just hopeful that the gates can handle the volume and they can move away from ALPS without a reservation system
08:48:27 <Art> And the lower loop can sustain the traffic ;)
08:49:06 <CraigC> Squatch
08:50:08 <Dave from B™> With all the publicity regarding the flood, it will drop visitation. It will be a less crowded year for those that do visit.
08:50:40 <CraigC> gas prices should have an effect, too
08:50:55 <Art> Thought: West can only hold so many people
08:51:03 <Katie 🐻> Dave from B™, yup. My relatives in OH and MA saw flood coverage but nothing since. They think (thought) closed for season.
08:51:12 <Art> I'm not going to drive 4.5 hours from Gardiner to get in via West
08:51:43 <Dave from B™> Art, Many can stay at Island Park as well
08:52:13 <Art> Sorry 3.5 hours one way
08:52:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice!
08:53:16 <CraigC> wow
08:53:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Haven't seen Depression for a while. Good one.
08:55:41 <Art> CraigC how hard was Bakers Hole to get into?
08:56:44 <CraigC> Art, too hard to ever try to go back last year. I had to park illegally out by the airport the 1st night, then go in at 6am the next morning to try to get the only spot that would open tht day, and luckiliy got it
08:57:33 <CraigC> no idea how it will be this year, not gonna try because of gas prices
08:59:01 <Art> What month was that?
08:59:16 <CraigC> early June
08:59:39 <Art> 16 days max stay?
09:00:14 <CraigC> it was ifficult the summer before, and started giving me anxiety about planning trips relying on there being spots open
09:00:28 <CraigC> yes, 16 max
09:03:09 <Ryan> And you're "only" coming from SLC, Craig.
09:03:24 <Ryan> Imagine planning that from Maryland. :(
09:03:41 <CraigC> yeah, but the 60+ miles daily in and out add up a lot
09:04:00 <CraigC> my truck gets about 13 mpg
09:05:12 <CraigC> hauling a small enduro-ish motorcycle would be ideal
09:06:21 <Ryan> The Park is not cheap, no matter how you skin it. I think the cheapest way is to work there, and even that requires $$$
09:06:30 <Ryan> Way more than many can realize.
09:12:01 <DanS working> Leaving a note on West Gate status this morning: Lines only a few cars deep at this time 0910 with 4 kiosks open at gate
09:18:18 <Dave from B™> Art, I was able to secure an electris site at Rainbow Point ner west for 6/28. There were open sites for that day at 3 West area CG's. Some people are cancelling.
09:24:33 <Art> Thanks I'll look into it
09:38:32 <Ryan> Today is an adderall and coffee type of day.
09:38:39 <Ryan> Boy howdy are my fingers moving.
09:45:39 <Katie 🐻> stupid cam
09:46:16 <Katie 🐻> And tricksy geysers
09:50:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like everything is due.
09:53:13 <Dave from B™> I hear Rockford Files music
09:53:21 <Katie 🐻> Yeah, nothing for an hour then all due at once
09:53:24 <Katie 🐻> happy driving!
09:59:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds like Perry Mason music
10:08:49 <open> Madison shows sites for lots of days.
10:10:11 <open> Did not take long for them to put the buffalo back.
10:16:09 <DanS working> 1015 - no line at West Gate
10:17:22 <open> Probably sold out of license plates in West.
10:20:59 <Dave from B™> Yep...pretty soon we will here odd even isn't working. We need something that allows 75% of people in instead of 50%
10:24:54 <Dave from B™> hear*
10:27:51 <open> Not enough charging stations.
10:32:04 <DanS working> Looks like if YNP just did odd/even in the morning, that would be enough
10:33:10 <Dave from B™> DanS, that is an interesting thought
10:33:19 <open> If it was odd to get in and even to get out, that would help.
10:33:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Do it by last names.
10:34:54 <open> Smiths get in every other Tuesday of months that end in R!
10:37:44 <open> How about suspend the park pass and everyone that want to get in has to pay, including buss riders.
10:40:21 <open> Even then, it would take them 40 years to pay for the repairs.
10:40:38 <KorbenC> YNM Seismo is down
10:41:12 <open> Enjoy the steam, time to go do stuff
11:36:10 <Dave from B™> 8 consecutive Grand intervals over 7 hours
11:36:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Practice for when you show up.
11:37:25 <Dave from B™> That means lot of conversation time at Grand
11:38:13 <KorbenC> At least we will have Sawmill to keep us entertained :)
11:54:03 <6> Nice welcome back for Jim. a 34 min Turban interval
11:54:31 <6> KorbenC, when do you land at OF?
11:55:37 <KorbenC> 6, I will be there early morning Saturday
11:56:16 <6> early Daisy?
11:57:39 <Dave from B™> Not early based on last 10 eruptions
11:57:45 <Ryan> Only by about 5 minutes
11:58:00 <Betty> hi all
11:58:07 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
11:58:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
11:58:34 <Betty> hi Dave from B™, Kevin L™ 🌵, Ryan, KorbenC
11:58:41 <6> time for Grand now
11:58:55 <Betty> hi 6
11:58:57 <6> at 20 minutes since Turban
11:59:24 <0> Hi Betty, are you on the train or at home?
11:59:29 <6> Hi Betty. I hope we do not miss Grand
11:59:50 <6> no Grand, sigh...
12:00:06 <6> thought this might be the one
12:00:13 <Dave from B™> More time for Jim to tell stories:)
12:02:33 <Betty> Hi 0, I´m home
12:02:44 <6> I bet you could recite most of Jim's stories Dave:)
12:03:19 <Dave from B™> I hear a new one occasionally
12:03:36 <0> Betty, nice time to open a beer and relax:)
12:04:19 <Betty> lol, I already had one :-)
12:04:51 <0> :thumbsup:
12:05:04 <Betty> I go to Munich tomorrow for a short trip til sunday ;-)
12:05:49 <Betty> oh, Bulger´s Hole
12:08:17 <Betty> so, how does the plate entrance system work?everything running smooth?
12:09:30 <0> there are 'odd' people in the park today :)
12:09:46 <KorbenC> 0, very odd indeed :P
12:10:04 <KorbenC> Does JimS have a campsite in the park, in the inn parking lot, or outside the park this time, anyone know?
12:10:11 <6> today the gate was only crowded for an hour
12:10:19 <6> very low volume going thru
12:10:30 <6> he stays in West Korben
12:10:44 <KorbenC> Betty, as far as I am concerned everything is going great, for now at least,
12:11:08 <KorbenC> 6, :thumbsup: So only odd days or does he have two plates?
12:11:26 <6> no one has two plates!
12:11:46 <KorbenC> ;)
12:11:47 <6> he could try to go in early, I have yet to hear how that is going for people, before gate opens.
12:11:54 <Dave from B™> I have 2 plates....
12:11:59 <Betty> only need 2 cars :-)
12:12:01 <Dave from B™> but they are both the same number
12:12:26 <KorbenC> 6, I heard someone went up to the gate at 2am this morning and it was open and unmanned,
12:12:40 <0> when I'm at the buffet I have two plates
12:12:42 <6> well that is a bit early, even for Jim
12:12:56 <6> but he could probably manage before 5
12:12:56 <Betty> lol, 0
12:15:16 <KorbenC> 0, lol
12:16:36 <6> maybe Jim is calling waves on Grand...
12:16:49 <6> or not
12:17:04 <6> D7
12:18:48 <Dave from B™> It is still odd that Grand starts are at 71% in last 52 eruptions where starts are noted
12:20:29 <Ryan> Wonder if there is a correlation to interval or Turban delays.
12:21:02 <Dave from B™> It will be something I will be talking to Mary Beth about next week
12:21:07 <Ryan> I could see Grand getting repeatedly delayed by Turban and the system being primed to where Grand pulls the trigger because enough energy has entered its system.
12:23:21 <Dave from B™> It makes sense...I think Grand starts are more exciting
12:24:19 <Ryan> There is probably a really fascinating energy flow through those two features.
12:24:52 <Ryan> The heat into Turban, and into Grand, and the transfers between the two would be a scientists dream to quantify.
12:25:10 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, Mary Beth is going to be there next week?
12:27:32 <Dave from B™> It seems so
12:27:43 <KorbenC> :D
12:34:37 <Dave from B™> So, this last Grand is Jim's fault?
12:34:42 <Dave from B™> long*
12:36:16 <6> D8, we may miss Grand to the next OF window...
12:36:20 <KorbenC> Dave's***
12:36:40 <6> it will be over 9 hours.
12:49:20 <CraigC> wb, Craig
12:49:22 <CraigC> thanks
12:49:41 <Betty> what???
12:49:49 <Dave from B™> you are talking to yourself?:D
12:49:54 <CraigC> hahaha
12:50:07 <KorbenC> LMFAO
12:50:07 <CraigC> just a cry for attention
12:50:30 <Betty> hello CraigC :-)
12:50:33 <Dave from B™> hahahahahahaha...well, you got it...How can I help?
12:50:37 <CraigC> Betty, howdy
12:50:39 <Betty> how are you?
12:50:51 <Betty> what did you eat today?
12:51:03 <CraigC> Betty, totally exhausted, rode 14 miles to the top of the ski resort
12:51:23 <Betty> did you already have time to play with the dog?
12:51:25 <CraigC> Dave from B™, can you mow my front lawn?
12:51:32 <KorbenC> Craig, I can do that :)
12:51:34 <Dave from B™> CraigC, it seems you have been getting on your bike a little more lately
12:51:43 <KorbenC> do you want to go out for lunch Craig?
12:51:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lawn?
12:51:58 <CraigC> Betty, I had my daughter play with the dog so I could escape without him crying and being all sad, cuz I feel guilty when I go without him
12:52:01 <6> no....
12:52:06 <Betty> shall I mow your front yard, CraigC?
12:52:22 <Dave from B™> CraigC, Take a nap and then you will the energy to mow your lawn
12:52:33 <6> Lion is done
12:52:39 <KorbenC> I have a good feeling about this Turban cycle
12:52:45 <CraigC> ok, now I am getting overwhelmed with the attention..... can we rewind?
12:52:54 <6> we should be there...
12:52:58 <KorbenC> Sure Craig, anything for you :)
12:53:01 <Betty> wb CraigC
12:53:05 <CraigC> :)
12:53:12 <CraigC> thnks, Betty
12:53:19 <Betty> yw
12:53:47 <6> no....
12:53:58 <6> OF after Grand...
12:54:27 <Dave from B™> WE might as well ask Grand to hold off for another 20 minutes
12:55:13 <6> look for it on GT
12:55:19 <CraigC> Dave from B™, what do you think of The Old Man?
12:56:02 <Dave from B™> I like it. When does the 3rd episode come out?
12:56:21 <Dave from B™> You can have Barry
12:56:31 <CraigC> I'm sure this weekend. I didn't know it would be the kind of series we had to wait for each episode
12:56:39 <6> I don't get Barry...
12:57:01 <6> it's FX, right, they are always weekly
12:57:04 <CraigC> Barry is very dark humor.... I completely love it.
12:57:28 <6> I will take dark like Peaky Blinders any day
12:58:04 <Dave from B™> We started watching a 2012 series last night...Perception
12:58:11 <CraigC> yeah, I think I finished episode 4 of Peaky Blinders last night... it has become much darker than previous seasons
12:58:31 <6> seems less dark to me, and I am sad it is over
12:58:44 <6> I finished, great last episode
12:59:25 <CraigC> I love The Boys on Amazon
13:00:09 <CraigC> it cracked me up that Obama recommended The Boys during his Covid lockdown watchlist
13:02:25 <KorbenC> No Grand on this cycle
13:05:22 <Dave from B™> We are up to D9
13:08:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF
13:12:21 <6> D10...the most I have ever witnessed is D13
13:12:37 <6> this is a double D too
13:12:50 <6> somewhere around 4 there was another D
13:13:01 <6> Jim does not list them going forward
13:13:03 <Dave from B™> Yes, double CraigC, that brings up a different meaning:)
13:13:17 <6> or for you Dave?
13:13:30 <Dave from B™> nope, I had to beat Craig to his humor
13:13:47 <CraigC> :i::i:
13:13:49 <Dave from B™> I seem to recall lc mentioning a D13 or D15...I can't remember exactly
13:14:11 <Dave from B™> I wonder how many people have left Grand
13:14:38 <Dave from B™> CraigC, those better be eyeballs
13:15:16 <CraigC> 0=0=
13:25:50 <6> I bet some folks left and some have just arrived
13:27:14 <6> Jim had a few turbans before the D, so he has been out there a while now
13:28:17 <6> D11 it is. I have to leave soon, I will have to check in later to see how this plays out
13:28:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Glad I picked trains this year
13:28:51 <6> 10 hours soon
13:29:08 <6> yeah, not a big year for UGB
13:29:45 <6> FLD is closed indefinitely too
13:30:08 <Dave from B™> I just might have to go stare at dirt, then
13:30:13 <6> Dave will you see lc?
13:30:28 <6> yes, dirt might be the best option
13:31:14 <Dave from B™> 6, yes, I will see him next week
13:31:26 <6> nice
13:31:39 <6> you can wait for BH not to erupt together
13:32:31 <6> Fountain is usually 6 hours or less according to GT posts
13:32:33 <Dave from B™> Like I said before, this trip will be about reconnecting with people I haven't seen for awhile.
13:32:53 <Dave from B™> Yep, Fountain....I wonder if Lone Star trail is open
13:36:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You have to take your Bob Wills music.
13:37:11 <Dave from B™> I'd rather listen to country that is 2000-2015
13:38:21 <6> I would think Lone Star is open
13:38:28 <6> might be starting to get buggy
13:39:19 <Dave from B™> That's an easy jaunt with a bike
13:39:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
13:47:03 <6> wow
13:47:48 <6> I hope after all this they get more than 1 burst
13:48:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy
13:49:34 <6> why is the GT prediction so far off?
13:49:56 <6> 1456 compared to 1400 for NPS
13:49:56 <CraigC> lol
13:50:27 <Betty> bbl
13:50:41 <CraigC> I think it was Jake that adjusted GT a couple of weeks ago based on recent string of intervals
13:51:02 <6> I thought it had been doing shorts
13:51:16 <6> weird no Turban post
13:51:38 <Dave from B™> I see Jake climbed Granite Peak recently. Tallest in MT
13:51:51 <Dave from B™> Maybe, it is a triple D
13:52:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Jim did a typo.
13:52:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Getting ready for a Dave visit
13:56:44 <Dave from B™> Yikes, I hope it goes soon.
13:57:33 <Dave from B™> So, multi burst or a really long single?
13:58:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Short single
13:58:10 <6> so no Turban?
13:58:53 <DanS working> Good grief, Just drove 40 mins to an appointment, drove back, got an oil change and had lunch... and Grand still hasn't gone!?!
13:58:54 <6> they have been out there since before 10. I see Mary Beth is there too!
13:59:35 <CraigC> DanS working, ok, now it can go
14:00:05 <Ryan> Someone text MB or Jim and tell them they are in our thoughts and prayers, and we are holding vigil.
14:00:17 <Ryan> Looks like Turban now
14:00:28 <DanS working> Hope it's more than a G1Q.
14:00:47 <Ryan> I hope the system isnt going into cardiac arrythmia.
14:00:56 <CraigC> maybe Giant will erupt instead
14:02:33 <DanS working> CraigC, was thinking same.
14:02:49 <DanS working> Must be the neighborhood
14:03:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Grand was dormant in the early 60's
14:03:33 <CraigC> lol
14:04:24 <Ryan> We wont dicuss how it got un-dormant lol
14:04:35 <DanS working> Kevin L™ 🌵, you may want to delete your duplicate Daisy entry
14:18:29 <DanS working> Lucky 13 Turban
14:30:18 <KorbenC> So is this nearly 11hr Grand intervalp ossibly caused by the Rift last night, or is that just to far away?
14:31:14 <Dave from B™> At one point do we get really concerned?
14:31:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It will be this Turban
14:31:54 <kc (working)> when we see lava
14:32:31 <KorbenC> :grand:!
14:32:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh

18:21:54 <kiawe (at work)> Ilooked at some of the other cameras, and I see what look like several landslides visible from the Mt. Washburn cameras.

20:34:15 <Michelle> OF window
20:34:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It may be.
20:37:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like two of the railcams I watch got hit by lightning.
20:41:18 <Michelle> Been some crazy thunder here
20:43:34 <DanS working> Sun blast on West Gate static cam

21:15:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I don't know what that dentist used but it sure kicked my butt.
21:25:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you ever see my sunset train picture Michelle?
21:28:35 <Michelle> No, i have not. I am a big sunset person as you can tell
21:29:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
21:30:22 <Michelle> WOW!! Beautiful.
21:30:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The museum liked it enough it is on their web and facebook pages and it is the September calendar picture.
21:31:46 <Michelle> My BIL would love that.
21:32:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The really fun thing is I got to drive the train back!
21:33:04 <Michelle> Many years ago, our Jr Achievement sponsor company was Union Pacific, our product that we made and sold was framed pictues of the stained glass windows in the depot downtown
21:33:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice. That is a beautiful building.
21:34:17 <Michelle> Still have my set from more than 40 years ago.
21:35:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have some fun Salt Lake cars. I have a couple Utah Railway engines and some cars, Some SaltAir cars, Utah Poultry cars, and some Geneva Steel.
21:36:08 <Michelle> That sunset train absolutely belongs in a museum!:heart:
21:37:02 <Michelle> Not just the web or calendar page!
21:38:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> When they get the new building done it may be there.
21:38:35 <Michelle> :lion:
21:39:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Barely in time!
21:39:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is one of the trains I will be riding in August:
21:41:05 <Michelle> Nice!
21:42:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you ever been to Gold Spike Monument?
21:43:00 <Michelle> Promontory Point?
21:43:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
21:43:25 <Michelle> Yes. Where east met west
21:43:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pretty interesting place.
21:45:24 <Michelle> There is some really good rock hounding just a little northwest of there! Smoky quartz crystals.:)
21:45:58 <Michelle> I don't think Grand is happening.
21:47:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There should be some great stuff around Lake Mead now. My wifes Dad and Uncles had mining claims. I know they got some gold on the North Shore.
21:47:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you see the interval of the last one?
21:48:54 <Michelle> I tuned in for a quick minute and it was in the yellow, only had a minute and didn't see what happened
21:49:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 10 hours 48 minute interval.
21:51:19 <Michelle> Light is gone. Going to call it
21:52:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good night. At least you got a surprise BH!
21:52:43 <Michelle> Yes, Thank you :bee:
