Rogue, MFS, and Grand in one year?

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but toot, toot!! I drew a MFS, a Rogue, and a Grand permit in one year. Who has done this before and made all the trips work. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed right now and am thinking that I may have to turn one of them back in. Before I get flamed for putting in for a permit that I could not use, think about the luck that I had to draw all 3 and the chances of that happening. Thanks.

Someone is smiling on you dude. Bad karma to turn it down. Take a deep breath, make a plan, enlist some friends to help you, and Have The Summer Of Your Life

If you have the time, do them all. I've done it a couple of times and it is a great way to spend a summer and fall. If you don't have the time, drop the Rogue. It is the easiest permit to pick up and you can do it another year. Besides it is a rather short trip on the river for the distance you have to drive from Colorado.

Congratulations. I've been waiting 14 years for a Grand Permit and got it this year. Launch May 18 2013. Already starting to put together a crew. BTW I live in Gypsum. When do you launch on the Grand? We should have a drink together sometime. I'll buy. Pazzo's. Let me know.

Jerk... The permit ferries were not kind to me. I'm hitting all the non permitted rivers I can this year.
