View Full Version : Contest: First cog



Brad
03-26-2010, 08:00 PM
Let's start off a new contest. Guess the date when we will see the first cog in the North web camera archive images going either up or down.

Remember the images are every 15 minutes and we could miss all of them on a specific date.

Rules:

- We must see a part of the cog in the image. Smoke is not sufficient.

- Entries can be made starting now.

- All entries must be made and dated by this forum to be no later than 11:59 PM on Sunday, March 28th.

- Employees of the Cog company are not allowed to win. They may enter if they wish.

- If a date has been selected by more than one person, only the first entry will be valid.

- Once a guessed date has passed, that entry is no longer valid.

- If the actual date is not guessed, then the person who guesses the next calendar date is the winner.

- The winner will receive a hearty round of applause from all participants and lurkers.

I think it is going to be snowing like crazy on the 19th of April. Then everything is going to freeze and maybe will thaw by May 2nd :D.

Make sure on April 19th that it is really the Cog and not my Subie dressed up to look like a cog.

If your Subie is belching black smoke, I'd take it in for a thorough inspection. :D

Since there are only 7 people in the contest and most readers don't visit the forums until they are at work on a Monday morning maybe it should stay open a little longer. The 1st of April would be a good day...or maybe after the holiday weekend. It's not my contest, I'm just sayin'.

April 8th:

Most of the day we could not see anything out the North camera image. So, if the cog went by, we did not see it.

April 8th:

No cog today I can confirm that. Their first projected trek with people is May 1. Rumor has it they has started repairs on the bottom of tracks and are working upward. There is still a lot of snow on some sections up here so they will probably wait until after the 21st to start work up here to give it a bit more time to thaw since they usually wait til about two weeks prior to opening. But we will see. If the weather returns to what its been, they might start earlier.

In the North View Cam it looks like there is a big section of track still buried by snow.

They had a special clearing crew out today shaking the snow off the tracks.

I'll try to talk to him, but he's a real stubborn Sun-of-Gun. It was almost impossible to convince him to let it snow just one day in South Town years ago.

Brad

Charlie,

Now that there is good power coming up along the Cog tracks, plug the power into the tracks and heat them up a bit. The snow will melt. Seems a lot easier than trying to clear the snow away.

Charlie

Just think about the way this contest is structured. It could be July before we see a Cog in the North camera image. It is not a question of when they are running. We have to hit the timing right on the quarter hour. It will be interesting.

There are several hikers heading across the patch of snow in this picture.

did any of the contestants take into consideration the projected opening of the summit building?

May 17th, weather permitting..... and there really is no big yank because the Canadian holiday this year is May 24.

We all know everyone is working in getting open to the top, but that is always a moving target!

Also, they might do some test runs on any day, and for the purpose of this contest that is okay. But, I highly doubt they would open to the public on a weekday, there just isn't enough traffic to justify that.

The first issue is the North camera has to be able to see something - anything. Right now there is no view.

So, we have till 7:00 PM tomorrow for our picks (they are not guesses). Then we will see what Monday brings us.

While the weather will be a key factor for this race since fog makes it hard to see a train but did any even look at the cog schedule? They are only running weekends until the 29th, so that makes most of these dates impossible from the get go. And worker trains won't be doing too much work up here until the ties thaw enought to work on them. And no worries about missing one today, we had 0 trains arrive on the summit. So the 15th at ~1130 am is the next best shot but looking at long term models...

With the warm weather we have been having, several of us were hoping to see the work crews up there in the North camera. And by having this contest, we all learn more about what happens and how things get done. The is an educational experience.

Chip,

Because of this, there could be an Act III. So, stay in touch.

If you go back through the image archives for last summer and see how many times we actually saw a Cog in the image - it is not that often.

Act II vigil continues........

Well, 5/10 is wrapping up and so far it looks like billysinc got called for icing. The North camera has been iced over all day. So, if a Cog went by, we would never know.

Based on the rules, the next 3 days belong to Chris.

It is amazing how quickly the North camera image cleared up. At 4:00 PM it was all iced over. 4:15 PM and we had a clear view of the cog tracks. But, no cog train.

It looks like Chris got skunked even if he had 3 days in a row to pull through.

But, there was one image that showed a vehicle on the Auto Road.

:(:( I'm skunked. I thought maybe today seeing how it was so clear.

Snow Miser

I may be skunked too. I just checked the Cog's schedule, and unless a work train goes up, the earliest one will be tomorrow at 11am.

You're also going to be in the clouds through Saturday so it doesn't matter if the cog runs or not.

Brad

It now turns out Charlie and I are planning on driving up the Auto Road on Monday as far as we can go - and that is my date. So, if I can get the cog to stop right at the correct spot where the camera can see it . . .

Or we got to the end of Thursday and we are all skunked again.

Hi Brad -
Good luck with stopping the Cog in the right place/at the right time on Monday. Hope you and Charlie have a great time, no matter how far up the road you get :).
Sorry about this but, I think there might be an ACT III coming soon to a forum near you and me (perhaps this forum :cool:), or we'll all have to admit the Fog, Clouds, Iced up North View window and Cog stumped us all.

Charlie
05-14-2010, 03:52 PM
how about we start picking dates now so it can start right after the last date of ActII
that your call Brad when to start

Snow Miser
05-14-2010, 08:45 PM
I'm out. It was too cloudy to see a train even if one did go up. Good luck to everyone else. Brad and Charlie, I hope you can hold up one on Monday long enough for the webcam to take a shot.:D

Anna LeBlanc

Good luck Brad and Charlie.

If you do get to stop the train Charlie just don't scare them with that bandana over your face.They may think they're being hijacked!!!:D

Ok - assuming Act II is a skunk session, let's start picking our dates for ACT III. Selections (notice I do not say guesses) must be in by 9:00 PM EDT Tuesday. Act II remaining dates are still valid. So, ACT III dates MUST start after ACT II dates with the first possible Act III date being May 21st.

It is too bad Charlie will be too busy tomorrow to enjoy his victory - if it happens. He will be cooking ribs for our Dock Party lunch. He is driving up from PA now and Chris B from South Dartmouth, Mass will meet up with him. They are coming to join in on the fun of us putting the docks in to kick off the summer.

You can join and watch by checking out the lake web camera at http://longlake.homeip.net:8003 - but, you must use Internet Explorer. Accept the ActiveX controls that get downloaded off the camera. The party is scheduled to start at 9:00 AM EDT Sunday.

Hi Chris -

CHRIS
05-15-2010, 08:42 AM
Ok now we can negotiate :D. How much do I need to make it to my goal for STP ;).

Snow Miser

If there is an ACT III, I will go with May 22nd.

Have a great Dock Party! I'll tune in tomorrow a few times throughout the morning.

I will take the 23rd for act III

Brad

On the web camera at the upper right are 4 icons side by side. The 2nd from the right looks like a rose - sort of, Click on it and a navigation window pops up. Click Presets and a set of presets are available. You can move the camera left, right, up, down and zoom in & out. Just don't fight over it kids.

The Dock Party will start at 9:00 AM EDT and the activity (if one can call it that) will be off to the right. Once that dock is in, then we shift to the far left to the neighbor's dock. Then we eat Charlie's ribs and home made french bread, and. . .

Well, it has almost been a year since I won it. But, Subaru could not make enough Outbacks last year to meet the demand. Then they added Cash For Clunkers on top of that and people wanted to get more Outbacks. So, I got MWO-STP Suby at the end of December.

I have been planning on getting to the summit for photos once the road opens up.
