On the 15th, we should be getting our official “you won a permit” or “Sorry, Charlie” emails from Recreation.gov. The permits they released on the 11th were not “verified.” I assume if you got a permit, it is valid. I also heard that we may have to confirm with rec.gov by May 20 or else they will be cancelled and put into the 2-day mini lottery.
If you win one, DO NOT print it out. Once you do, it cannot be canceled for a refund. The permit will list the name of the Trip Leader and alternate. These are NOT transferable. You cannot buy or sell them since either one of those two must be on the trip to show the permit to the Ranger at Sub Dome. However you CAN substitute for the other slots you got. You cannot sell slots.
Let us know if you got an awarded permit.
If you are new to the blog, we did a webinar 2 weeks ago on the Permit Process. You can hear and see the slides. Here.
