Has anyone received cancellation notices for launches in the next week yet? Fingers crossed that no news is good news... I've been watching this closely over the last few weeks as we have a trip launching on May 31st.

I have a launch on Saturday, 5/23. Haven't planned a damn thing yet so I don't get my hopes up.

I just spoke with BLM; they will be meeting tomorrow, Wednesday, around 11AM to decide. They did testing in Blanding this past weekend and looks like cases are spiking. Here is the data I'm looking at:

I am concerned, for our June 25th launch. I too will not be planning much and in the end it might be returned to the pot.

we have a may 26 launch, no word from BLM yet. I called the Monticello office just before 5 (the river office closes at noon)and the person answering the phone did not know if they had made a decision yet. waiting is fun

Fantastic News!

I also just spoke with a gentleman from Wild Expedition shuttles that spoke with someone from the BLM this morning and confirmed that the river will be opening on the 23rd!

Enjoy your trips everyone!

Are there any new stipulations to the permits? How many people are allowed?
