I agree with this. I think the current hybrid system is the best of both worlds. Those who want peace of mind can often get most camps reserved ahead while those of us who like to lay over and have some freedom can mix it up.
I know why the system exists on the MFS but the one time I was on a trip I found the system a bit stifling. Part of what I love about the river experience is being able to float on river time and make decisions with the information presented at hand. There aren't too many other occasions in life with that type of freedom and thoroughly enjoy that privilege.
I hate that so much is filtered through FaceBook now. I deleted my account 1.5 years ago because I didn't like so many facets and one was data collection. Is there a direct link to a survey that isn't directed through social media?
