I successfully put in apps for the Main, Middle, and Yampa yesterday. Fingers crossed.

Curious who has the longest streak for never winning a lottery permit (but actively applying)? My wife and I have only been applying for 6 years, but have never won a permit in the lottery (and this is typically applying for at least 3 rivers every year). Gotten several cancellation, but never won the actual lottery. I'm sure some others out there can easily eclipse 6 years.
@MNichols said 17 years unsuccessful on the 4Rivers.
Eric, another great article. I appreciate your writing style.
