Dino Permit Call-in

I'm giving up.

Thinking that last year the reason I couldn't get through was b/c of intermittent calling while at work, I took this Monday off. Big mistake. No luck after one hour.

Has anyone here actually gotten through?

I'm liking the Grand lottery for cancellations a lot more right now.

Bummed,

- Jon

Yep, spent the last hour on two different phones - ridiculous waste of time. If NPS can award Grand permits through follow up lotteries, why not do the same in Dinosaur? Or does someone want to waste our time...?
Not also GCNP runs their own lottery, where Dinosaur forces you through recreation.gov At any rate, refreshing the calendar availability screen shows only about a dozen launches awarded so far, so I'll keep fingers flying for a while longer...

Got keep calling and ring, ring, ring, busy busy busy. Typical government bureaucracy and inefficiency as they take one call at a time and process one permit at a time. Actually there are a lot of permit dates available this year when I checked. Good luck!

FYI, Smith River Lottery results post online today.

Was still calling at 8:40. Was there anything left when you got through?

I gave up at 9:00. Now I have this busy signal in my head that I can't get rid of, and no more minutes on my cell phone for the rest of the month.... What a bunch of crap!

Yeah, lots of dates. She told me they are available because lottery winners didn't pay their winner's fee as they were supposed to, as it said in their email announcing their win and on the rec.gov website.

duct tape - I'll see how the first wave of invites go, could be room for you.

Feb 28

Looking at the number of open dates I think a lot of people did not read the fine print stating you now have to confirm your permits by Feb 28th. I would hate to be the guy who won a trip only to find out it was given away because he did not confirm.
