Dino Cancellations

Well, that went fast Anyone get lucky here?

Prior to 8 Mountain time, there were several Yampa available dates showing on rec.gov. When you clicked on one, it said not an option until after 8AM. So at exactly 8, according to two computers and my watch, I clicked on the date i wanted, and it, plus every other "A", were gone. Same for Lodore.

It made Southwest seat reservations seem slow. Either another rec.gov glitch or there were thousands of other folks doing the same thing.

Hope some buzzards got some good dates.

Jon

None for me. I thought I had one then got the check back at 10am message.
Oh well, still have Boundary-Heller 2017 in the bag so I suppose I shouldn't be greedy.

I'm living the same experience here. Wish I had been talking to the call center at 8; seems like there was misleading information about the ability to make online reservations. Also talked to the Dino River office who said they don't do anything anymore related to this. It's all handled by Recreation.gov, he said. I'm now on hold with the call center at 877 444 6777.

I was looking at yampa and they vanished into thin air immediately at 8, to the point that I had my date selected, Hit book permit exactly at 8 and it told me to select a date as if they were never there at all....

I was watching the NIST atomic clock, and before 8am a number of the "A"s had turned to "R"s. Pretty frustrating.

Yampa's were not avail at 8:03, at least according to three clocks here. Of the at least 20 or so "Available" dates with an "A", every single one was gone at 8:00:05.

I'm hoping it was just folks with faster fingers, or maybe the gov't clock was a few seconds early, but it's hard to not think somethings wonky.

I too had the same experience except sometimes I would highlight the Available date and when I hit book it would say "Inventory is not available for the entire stay period. The entrance cannot be booked."

June 2nd flashed up a few minutes ago. I couldn't snag it but I saw it. I suspect we are all hunched like vultures around our keyboards.......

I don't suspect fishiness - just high traffic. First click on date shuts it down immediately.
