Think I've gotten it a couple times and been turned down for it a couple times. Don't think I've ever gotten it where they didn't give Wade & Curtis as camp 1. You can ask for an extra day on the Yampa side too.

Thanks for the info. I knew 8,000 was too good to be true.

When I sent in my final permit information, I sent a check for $35 and asked for 4 campsites. We got Pot Creek and Limestone, which I requested, and State Line and Big Island, which I did not.

I rafted Lodore just below 10k and 22k after the confluence in 2011. For rafters the biggest change was between upper and lower disaster (not really a rapid at lower flows). A raft flipping wave forms river left with some tricky laterals above pushing right into it and big spillover protecting river right just upstream. HHM I would say goes from Class III to IV. Everything else was similar but with a big water feel. Below the confluence, whirlpool canyon had some very big wave trains.
