If you “won” the Half Dome Lotto, you need to read this. You MUST log on to your recreation.gov account and “confirm” your award before May 20. If you don’t, you will be cancelled and your permits tossed into the 2-day mini-lotteries. This is new for 2013 and its easy to slip off your radar.
Also, you cannot use a smart phone image; you must have a real paper permit. The one that you will print out from your recreation.gov account. DO NOT PRINT IT UNTIL YOU ARE CERTAIN YOU WILL GO. Once you print it out, you cannot later cancel it and get are fund. If the Trip Leader or Alternate cannot go, the others cannot. But if the Trip Leader or Alternate go, the others can be replaced. You CANNOT “sell” slots.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Television is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and yet remain lonesome.” – T. S. Eliot
