COMMENTS
Sequence A008470 lists "prime triple decades", i.e., numbers m>1 such that the interval (10m,10m+10) contains at least 3 primes. The decades must be of the form m=3k+1, since for m=3k, 10m+3 and 10m+9 cannot be prime and for m=3k+2, 10k+1 and 10k+7 cannot be prime. Thus, "consecutive" prime triples are meant here in the sense of consecutive k-values.
Alternatively, the present sequence lists the terms A238713(n) for which A238713(n+2) <= A238713(n)+75, or equivalently, floor(A238713(n+2)/30) <= floor(A238713(n)/30)+2, but only if A238713(n-1) < A238713(n)-15, to keep only the first of a possibly longer run, cf. example.
See A238716 for the length of the runs of "consecutive" decades A008470 in this sense.

EXAMPLE
The first occurrence of 5 consecutive triples is: {11, 13, 17 (or 19)} ; {41, 43, 47} ; {71, 73, 79} ; {101, 103, 107 (or 109)} ; {131, 137, 139}. This corresponds to decades 1,4,7,10,13; i.e., the first 5 terms of sequence A008470. The present sequence only lists a(1)=11, but not 41 or 71 which also start a run of 3 consecutive prime triple decades, but they are not listed because already part of the run starting at a(1).
The next occurrence of 4 consecutive triples starts with decade m=541, and the next occurrence of 5 consecutive triples starts with decade m=910052463685, at p = 9100524636851 (found by J. K. Andersen).
