Soooooo... Are you going on these rivers pre or post permit season?
Its not that I don't have faith that I will draw a permit. I just like to have realistic expectation. This way when I don't get a permit, I am better equipped for the let down.
I do have a little faith but it's not to draw a permit.. I had a middle fork, main, and hells canyon last year.. All cancellations of course.
my large group has drawn 2 permits in the last 7 years. However we have managed to float the main, or middle fork every year by picking up a cancellation.
