The best of the 4 river lottery?

With permit season in full swing, our rafting group is torn and indecisive. What is the best trip in the 4 river lottery???

Selway. Shorter trip, but it's the one that feels the most remote. Best whitewater, too.

Selway. By far the best whitewater and you can go run the Lochsa when your finish.

They're all great trips, but my priority is as follows: 1. Selway 2. MF Salmon 3. Main Salmon 4. Hell's

Selway. But also the hardest to get. If you definitely want a chance, your odds are probably best with the Main. Truth is, you can't go wrong, though.

I think we should get a group together to run the Selway at high water. If it is a big water year like we had last year then people will be canceling their permits. If we had a group ready to take advantage of that - it could be sweet. I have also heard that you better bring your brass balls with you and be ready for big continuous class V.
