I had a June 1st Yampa, but someone with faster internet got it. Everything was gone in a fraction of a second, just like last year. My DSL can't compete with ISDN for people at work.

Nothing wrong with a little venting. It's good therapy. I had internet issues as well. Browser got hung up a bit right at 8am and by time I got to June, there was nothing there.

If you hung around, Oct dates were popping back in as people decided not to follow through with checkout. I had 4 different dates in my cart at some point before settling on the one I liked the most.

F that might as well call it high use season and make a lottery for it. Hope rec.gov burns in hell.

Dont give up. People will be canceling dates once they figure out someone else in their group got a permit for the same time frame. Our group will be canceling a fall date because of this.
