News - Updated cancellation system for 4 Rivers

This looks like the response to recent discussions about computer programs giving people instant notifications about cancellations...

I'm pretty impressed with their quick response to the problem.

Agreed. I think that is a big improvement, though of course not a final solution. Still, way better than the old system. I don't mind checking once a day, but I hate the idea of needed to constantly monitor.

Admin Note - all posts on this topic have been merged into this thread.

And it's great to hear that the USFS responded to abuse of the system very quickly!

This is an awful "solution" now I have to get off work at 3:00am stay awake until 8:00am and then not get the permit anyways because whoever lives in the city with the quickest internet will always win. I live in Idaho where the internet is shit.

This is effectively the old Dino system in that you could see what was available and the first to get through on phone by 8am won. Just using rec.gov instead of phone. I think this is a very good idea, at least in short term.

I've only been looking for permits for 5 years, but this year has felt very different so clearly something needed to be done.

Yeah your sh!t out of luck, I got fiber optic the permits are mine! Basically this just creates a mini situation on a daily basis of the release of pre and post season permits. Everyone gets on there at the same time and when the clock strikes everyone clicks and 1 person comes out ahead, normally me.
