I wonder if you have to submit a trip list for an inside of two weeks cancellation?
ZB - Since it's not a sure thing to get your friend's cancelled permit, especially with Rec.gov, and she'd probably forfeit the $135 fee, it doesn't seem like a good way to get a second high season trip down. And the thought of trying to pull it off gives me a headache. Yeah, maybe the system could be gamed
, but it seems pretty unlikely. It's been years since I was a Dino TL but IIRC you can submit a final roster the day before you launch.
I, for one, applaud the NPS for figuring out a way to help get those cancellations back to the public and not just sitting on them just because someone with your criminal mind will figure out a way to take advantage of it.
