Not to rag on you in particular but this definitely directed at the cheating that has been so blatant on the Buzz this season (haven't paid attention in the past):
First off, if you want to see what permits are available for Yampa or the Green you can go to the same website we all do to check daily. Its here:
Dinosaur National Monument Available Launch Dates
Most rivers release cancelled permits randomly for the very reason you are exhibiting right now. There is a reason permits are not transferable.
Is nobody else tired of people in our community rigging the systems in their favor? I mean we all are in the same boat here. It sucks for those of us who follow the rules to sit around and watch so many people openly and blatantly cheating. But to cheat with such impunity even within the community is too much for me. If we can't self regulate then we deserve every bit of regulation and PITA lottery system that has come our way.
Not directed to the OP is particular but at the problem in general. This one post is just the last straw for me. I just can't sit back anymore and listen to people cheat and then act like unique victims of some unfair system that exists for all of us. We all get skunked every now and again. In fact the system is such that most of us get skunked. Thats the way it works when the # of boaters outweighs the availability of the resource.
I don't expect people to change based upon my post but I just can't sit around in silence anymore while people openly cheat. It hurts our fellow boatmen when we allow this type of activity to go uncriticized. I am sure I will get lambasted and some folks will write this type of cheating off as a non-issue but we have to speak up at some point if we want the system to be as fair as possible for all of us and to reduce future increases in policy.
