Sorry guys, you are incorrect in your understanding of the system. As stated earlier, thr trip leader can be transferred to another person as long as that person is registered with BLM and Kay is aware of the transfer. She has to "OK" it. The permit language states the permit transfer has to be approved by BLM.
This permit was paid in February. I am not SELLING it I am not GIVING it to someone.
Think about it, you break a leg 2 weeks before your launch, you transfer your permit to someone so the group can go. It would be crazy to disrupt an entire trip group to put the permit back onthe BLM grab board.
Come on guys, either you want it or you don't. I have spoken to Kay about this process. It has been allowed in the past.
Oh, its availible, the guy who was going to take had to change plans.
