Who Answers Lottery Prayers?

Today marks one week from the lottery results- I have been nicer to people this week, answered all phone calls, responded to text messages promptly, only ate healthy foods and kept my raft out of the snow.



I was wondering what else could be done to insure one permit finds its way to my email box?

Ha ha! Way to pay it forward. Been doing the same thing. If I pick up a permit, I'll invite you. What did you put in for btw?

Cheers

What gets me is the 2 weeks of anticipation.

Hey at least they trickle them in, and slowly let us down one river at a time. Only 3 more days to find out I didn't get a salt permit, then the 14th all four of the four rivers get to let me down. The 15th desolation will tell me no, and I am left with just the slightest glimmer of hope on the 16th. This is the day that the yampa lets me down.

But hey, maybe it's not that bad, it was just me that didn't draw anything.. I will start texting all of my 12 or so friends that put in together. Surely one of them drew something. And then one by one, they will crush my dreams.

Destined to be forced to play the cancellation game once again. It's a repetitive nightmare.

Good times, happy thoughts

I feel sorry for all you poor suckers that are playing the pessimist game. I for one know I will win a Middle Fork permit, main Salmon permit, Yampa permit AND a Salt permit!

I like your optimism. Can I go with you?

Having a packraft improves my attitude too, there are some epic low water runs out there.

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.
