09:39:28 <Kat> Morning Katie
09:39:32 <Julie> :thumbsup:
09:39:35 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Steam on a cool humid morning can look like more than it really is.
09:39:57 <Julie> Absolutely.
09:40:15 <Julie> And I have been tabbing back only occasionally.
09:41:14 <Julie> I miss the smell of the geyser basins in the morning. We will be there in a little more than a month. Weather and flooding canceled our first two trips this year.
10:02:19 <Kat> Have a good drive katie!
10:02:43 <Katie šŸŒ»> Thanks for driving and passing the wheel, Kat
10:02:58 <Kat> :)
10:17:32 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> How is your eye Kat?
10:18:41 <Kat> Cloudiness has cleared but I have this shadow in the peripheral vision. Driving me crazy!
10:19:38 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That will go away. I had circles at night but not anymore.
10:20:20 <Kat> That's what they say - apparently your brain has to adjust! Haha
10:20:49 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It is amazing how that works.

12:09:16 <Julie> Still no N Goggle
12:10:24 <KorbenC> Hi Julie, 11
12:10:35 <Julie> Hi back
12:10:42 <KorbenC> Julie, best chance for NG would get in a few hours after Lion has had some eruptions
12:11:21 <Julie> I live in hope, when I was younger it was a regular performer. I have spent many happy summers sitting by it
12:11:44 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
12:21:01 <Betty> hi all
12:22:04 <2> looks like a perfect day there today
12:22:09 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
12:22:56 <Betty> hi Korben, 2
12:23:20 <2> Hey Betty, hope you had a good day
12:23:44 <Betty> I had :-)
12:24:00 <2> always nice when Mondays go well
12:25:51 <ynpvisitor11> Betty, howdy :)
12:27:32 <Betty> howdy, ynpvisitor11 ;-)
12:30:08 <Ryan> Good afternoon
12:30:38 <Katie šŸŒ»> Hi Betty, Korben, 2 and Ryan - I'm behind on greetings
12:30:38 <Ryan> Safely back home in MD
12:30:46 <Julie> :)
12:31:00 <Betty> hey Ryan, Katie šŸŒ», Julie,
12:31:44 <Julie> :thumbsup:
12:32:46 <Ryan> Hi Betty, Katie.
12:33:00 <Ryan> The effects of the rabies vaccine shots are wearing off after 12-18hrs.
12:33:07 <Ryan> Round one of 4...
12:33:19 <Katie šŸŒ»> What bit you?
12:33:28 <Ryan> A dog
12:33:36 <Betty> ouch
12:33:54 <Julie> I was waiting for you to say Marmot.
12:34:09 <Betty> I voted for a bat
12:34:14 <Julie> Neither is good.
12:34:28 <Ryan> Stopped at my grandparents on the way to MD, there was a dog in the road in front of the neighbors house. Thought it was the neighbors - my dumb*** decided to get out to shoo it off the road. As soon as I rounded the door it growled and lunged and was on me
12:34:42 <Katie šŸŒ»> By employer was bit by a bat - in her HOUSE - several years ago. My other employer (her husband) netted it and it as necropsied and it did have rabies. So...
12:46:38 <Ryan> Yikes. Yeah, I have always been worried with how much time I spend around bats
12:46:59 <Ryan> It is extremely hard to get insurance to cover rabies shots for anything other than PEP
12:47:23 <Ryan> Like, even once I get this I won't be able to get insurance to cover boosters every few years, which are onyl $300
12:47:42 <Katie šŸŒ»> Bats in caves behaving normally don't phase me (not that I'm an avid caver like you, but I visit some guided).
12:47:46 <Ryan> They are covering 80% of the cost of this PEP treatment, which will still end up costing me over $2000
12:47:58 <Katie šŸŒ»> Bats flying around at dusk cleaning up mosquito hatches likewise.
12:48:41 <Ryan> True, most bats don't bother me. But you never know. Me ability to work with conservation groups has been limited because they wont let me handle them without the shots.
12:48:46 <Katie šŸŒ»> I'm a dog lover, but I would have had the dog destroyed to see if I actually needed shots if there was no proof of vaccination and it attacked so readily. It's a menace.
12:49:14 <Ryan> It ran off, and they never found it
12:49:34 <Katie šŸŒ»> But now you are getting the shots, so you get to work with bat conservation, so that's a plus. And no option in the case of a dog that got away.
12:49:58 <Ryan> So, I am taking the experience as an opportunity to get a vaccine I really needed but can't afford.
12:50:08 <Ryan> Yup, exactly.
12:50:36 <ynpvisitor11> I had a ferret when I was a kid and it bit a neighbor's kid. We let them kill our ferret to test it so the kid didn't have to get the shots.
12:51:28 <Ryan> I have a vagal nerve response to shots. The HRIG shot was so voluminous and thick that it triggered a full on syncope response
12:51:38 <Ryan> I slumped right over in the chair...
12:52:17 <Ryan> Thank goodness I only need the big one once
12:53:09 <Ryan> Side effects are less than the COVID shots, but I can still tell I got it
12:53:24 <Ryan> Sore, achey, and tired.
13:01:22 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That is how I am normally
13:02:34 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Except add grouchy to that.
13:07:42 <2> nice of Daisy to have gone before OF
13:27:46 <2> I must have missed OF. I was on another page, thought someone would ding in about it. Time?
13:34:47 <2> Lion ie
13:35:38 <Betty> hi Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ
13:35:52 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi Betty
13:57:45 <Dave from Bā„¢> Good afternoon gazers
13:57:59 <Katie šŸŒ»> Hi, Dave
13:58:03 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Is it?
13:58:06 <Betty> hi Dave from Bā„¢
14:05:21 <Dave from Bā„¢> Did you plant some illegal substance in Graham's bag so he gets stuck in Germany?
14:05:43 <Betty> lol, no
14:07:01 <Dave from Bā„¢> I hope you had a great visit. I hope to visit you someday:)
14:07:05 <Betty> Iguess he posted some pics on facebook
14:07:21 <Dave from Bā„¢> I saw a couple
14:07:43 <Betty> it was a fun day yesterday
14:08:27 <Betty> we want to visit Billings someday
14:08:49 <Betty> I hope you are not on tour then
14:10:39 <Dave from Bā„¢> Just let me know when you're coming and we'll do our best to be here
14:11:06 <Betty> you are safe this year :-D
14:11:47 <Dave from Bā„¢> I'm assuming you are returning in 2023 to the US?
14:12:03 <Betty> hopefully
14:15:38 <Betty> LC ie
14:29:23 <Betty> depression?
14:29:34 <Betty> yep
14:30:02 <Betty> nice
14:30:19 <Betty> Tara got it
14:58:11 <Betty> OF window, maybe with wide view to Bee?
15:02:33 <Ryan> I have 5 rolls of film, 700 digital images, a half mile of cave survey notes, and 21 sheets of film to process...
15:03:02 <Ryan> I treat post-trip-depression syndrome by making the trip continue at home for weeks afterwards ;)
15:03:30 <Betty> :D:thumbsup:
15:04:09 <Ryan> 9000ft kicked my butt this time. I went to the first cave and left after 2 hours feeling like I was suffocating
15:05:04 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I felt the same way with a mine tour in Virginia City.
15:05:55 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That was only 6200' too.
15:10:20 <Betty> OF
15:10:56 <Betty> nice plume
15:11:10 <Katie šŸŒ»> Indeed
15:13:24 <Betty> started 1509

15:56:21 <linda(14)> got it
15:56:37 <linda(14)> few minutes early sorry
15:56:39 <Katie šŸŒ»> Happy driving!
15:57:02 <linda(14)> Katie šŸŒ», thx, and thanks for driving
16:01:35 <LindaG(14)> Bee is quiet
16:03:41 <LindaG(14)> Bee splashes
16:03:48 <KorbenC> Is it Linda?
16:03:51 <KorbenC> Lol
16:04:01 <KorbenC> and hi, glad you getting so close to YNP!
16:04:24 <LindaG(14)> KorbenC, hi. Me.too 14 days. I spoke to soon.
16:04:57 <KorbenC> It rained a bunch yesterday, but that was early in the interval, hopefully around 6pm. I think Oblong too sometime this evening.
16:05:34 <LindaG(14)> :thumbsup:
16:08:00 <KorbenC> Feels weird not to be waiting for Grand
16:11:50 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Pikes Peak changed my train Korben.
16:12:13 <LindaG(14)> :(
16:13:08 <KorbenC> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, :(
16:13:17 <KorbenC> Weather related? and when is it scheduled too
16:14:52 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They said they needed to maintain it. I think they just didn't have enough passengers to run the double train. It is the same time but we will be in the 2nd car and it only has 2 cars.
16:15:45 <KorbenC> At least it is the same time, sadly I probably won't be riding in the train with you, but I will 100% meet you on top and get you some donuts (Pikes Peak staple), or something :)
16:17:21 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I have been looking at the cams up there today. Some really cool clouds.
16:17:54 <KorbenC> Can you email me the time your train leaves/when you will be on top by any chance?
16:18:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I can probably do that.

16:19:33 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> When I was on the top my cell phone didn't work last year.
16:20:05 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Nice Linda. You get the Bee!
16:20:09 <KorbenC> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, I mean like what time your ticket is and when your estimated time is, that way I can plan my day accordingly :)
16:20:39 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Train leaves at 2:40
16:20:56 <KorbenC> 8/20 right?
16:21:13 <linda(14)> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, :)
16:21:16 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yes, Saturday
16:21:54 <KorbenC> Cool, I am looking forward to finally meeting you!
16:22:02 <LindaG(14)> Darn phone is dead can't send text
16:22:59 <Kat> Nice - Indy!!
16:26:35 <Kat> No one entered Indy start

16:28:07 <Kat> :thumbsup:
16:28:21 <KorbenC> BEE
16:28:34 <KorbenC> I will get it and BH in once the show is over :)
16:28:58 <Kat> Nice start Bee
16:29:37 <linda(14)> Kat, hi
16:29:52 <Kat> linda(14), Hi and hi all!
16:32:09 <KorbenC> Linda, thanks for the amazing cam work
16:32:17 <LindaG(14)> KorbenC, yw
16:33:39 <KorbenC> Great Beehive!
16:33:58 <KorbenC> Linda beat me to it
16:34:17 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> That was fun
16:34:44 <linda(14)> it was
16:35:46 <linda(14)> OF
16:36:03 <linda(14)> almost missed it
16:36:19 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Darn
16:37:27 <linda(14)> i was trying to keep top in view for him
16:37:51 <KorbenC> I am trying to find out when BH started via static but it wont let me scroll back
16:38:41 <linda(14)> KorbenC, Im having touble scrolling too, I think it stopped working
16:39:44 <KorbenC> Alrighty, someone find Eric :)
16:43:46 <LindaG(14)> Might still get daisy, maybe
16:44:12 <LindaG(14)> Maybe not ;)
16:46:35 <KorbenC> I think we missed it
16:47:51 <linda(14)> yeah
16:48:21 <KorbenC> I put in A time for 1640 NPS predict, we are probably over 2hr 10min.
16:48:38 <KorbenC> So maybe 1633 for last one, and 1833 for next one?
16:51:41 <LindaG(14)> Oblong
16:51:50 <KorbenC> Sweet
16:51:59 <LindaG(14)> I think
16:52:08 <KorbenC> Somewhat?
16:52:21 <KorbenC> Are we seeing the flood perhaps?
16:52:36 <LindaG(14)> Water
16:52:53 <LindaG(14)> Wow
16:52:54 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Good day for Linda.
16:52:55 <KorbenC> There we go. We probably just saw the flood at 1651:41
16:53:06 <LindaG(14)> That was tall
16:53:08 <KorbenC> Tall!
16:53:53 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> These are awesome Oblong eurptioins.
16:54:13 <KorbenC> Linda, you are going to get a beast of an Oblong eruption.
16:54:38 <KorbenC> Must be spectacular from the boardwalk, the flood of water coming down over all the terraces right now would be fun
16:54:38 <linda(14)> :)
16:55:08 <linda(14)> wow
16:55:20 <KorbenC> huge!
16:55:24 <linda(14)> wait for it
16:55:32 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They need a pullout and bench there.
16:55:53 <KorbenC> I have never, or very few times, seen a burst that big
16:56:09 <linda(14)> that was huge
16:56:32 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Biggest I remember
16:59:16 <KorbenC> Now THAT was a big eruption, still going too
16:59:52 <Katie šŸŒ»> Korben has been added to those who can send texts, so if he says "sending text" or "sent text," it's legit.
17:00:47 <LindaG(14)> Katie šŸŒ», :thumbsup: uhoh
17:05:06 <KorbenC> Lol, thanks Katie :)
17:25:01 <linda(14)> oblong water
17:25:12 <linda(14)> .
17:25:13 <linda(14)> .
17:25:14 <KorbenC> There is water in there I think
17:25:17 <Ryan> Nice!
17:25:25 <KorbenC> Hi Ryan, see FB :)
17:25:26 <linda(14)> sure is
17:25:27 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> A 2 burst!
17:27:02 <linda(14)> that's a first! or a second :D
17:27:25 <linda(14)> seemed to strong not to have water
17:27:42 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> 1 burst Grand, 2 burst Oblong. Go figure.
17:27:52 <KorbenC> I think that had water
17:27:57 <linda(14)> >(
17:28:39 <linda(14)> cool I think I got texting on my new phone
17:29:17 <Ryan> Series are cool
17:29:40 <linda(14)> thanks katie
17:32:57 <LindaG(14)> So far it's an exciting shift
17:33:13 <LindaG(14)> 1ill check on G
17:34:17 <KorbenC> We could get another Oblong in 30min, although a 3series just seems impossible
17:34:39 <LindaG(14)> Ok
17:34:54 <LindaG(14)> G is blah
17:35:04 <Ryan> Technically I think for it to be a series it is 3. Historically I recall it being 3 from Oblong, I think 2 is relatively new.
17:35:52 <LindaG(14)> I'm ready :)
17:35:56 <Ryan> I dont mean that to say its not in series, but rather that when it has a series it is usually (historically) more than 2.
17:36:13 <Ryan> That or I was very lucky with the ones I saw :P
17:36:52 <KorbenC> Very possible it was 3, I just know in the recent active phase it has been 2 or 1
17:39:39 <Ryan> Well, I've only seen two in person. So that also doesn't make a trend as per my initial argument anyways :P
17:40:10 <Ryan> It was erupting like every 5 or 7 hours back then, however. So when a series happened they tended to be strong, and long.
17:44:19 <LindaG(14)> Oh we might squeak in before old faithful
17:52:40 <LindaG(14)> I think.its getting ready
17:52:44 <KorbenC> Heavy steam
17:56:17 <Ryan> Keep in mind theres a few feet hidden here and that follow ups tend to happen from empty craters.
17:56:26 <Ryan> It could be erupting and we cant easily see it.
17:56:53 <LindaG(14)> :(
17:57:23 <KorbenC> For sure, follow ups dont tend to be nearly as big
17:57:58 <Ryan> And 3rds can be really small
17:58:48 <LindaG(14)> Cam too sensitive
17:58:54 <LindaG(14)> And blurry
17:59:09 <KorbenC> Yeah, in all of one series I have seen the 3rd eruption barely left the crater
17:59:43 <Ryan> I don't know that that was an eruption, but I certainly can't say it wasn't one either. That was a lot of steam for the right duration
18:00:34 <LindaG(14)> It's difficult to see water when it's strong
18:00:49 <KorbenC> It does also have steamy pushes about 30min after an eruption too though
18:02:09 <LindaG(14)> I can't tell if water
18:02:35 <KorbenC> I havent seen any on my screen yet
18:02:36 <LindaG(14)> Probably but...
18:04:26 <LindaG(14)> no one there to enter
18:04:44 <KorbenC> If you pan left a little bit you might see the "spot" we normally sit at
18:05:26 <LindaG(14)> Being difficult
18:05:37 <LindaG(14)> of window
18:05:53 <KorbenC> I dont think we can see the spot, blocked by the bw
