As many of you know, reservation permits are released in the following manner:
- 180 days in advance - 50 % of passes will be released;
- 30 days in advance - 20 % of passes will be released;
- 14 days in advance - 15 % of passes will be released;
- 5 days in advance - 15 % of passes will be released.
OK, I get it. Then when I inquire about when they are exactly released, I am informed by the BLM that they are available on the internet at 1 minute after midnight at "x" days in advance...................
Can anyone explain to me what would be the rationale for this (as opposed to releasing them, say 8-10 AM that morning)? Thanks.
