San Juan permits only 1 per season?

Rec.gov claims you can only have one permit this year for the San Juan. When trying to pick up available permits on the calendar, error message comes up saying I have good taste but Iíve exceeded my permit limit as I already have 1 reservation for the San Juan. Called the river office and they said thatís not true.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Hate to see permits go to waste

They said you don't have good taste?

Maybe Rec.gov will only allow one permit at a time.

I believe you can have one permit at a time only, but if invited on someone else's permit can go on more than one trip.


Andy, funny but cruel LMAO

That'd be real surprising if you couldn't go on someone else's permit, since you're not even required to submit your roster for any of the rec.gov permits I've gotten.

I got a cancellation permit and ran a trip in mid April. After the trip I tried to get another permit but got the good taste rejection message. When we launched on my first trip I even ask the ranger if I was limited to one trip a year. He was unaware of the one trip issue that seems to be happening.

Can someone else in your party with better taste get on and snag a permit?

Well, I recon party members with appropriate taste could secure a permit as no roster of team members is required. However, it seems that the larger question still remains. Do I only get one trip per year as trip leader?

No. You can have multiple permits as a TL but Rec.gov can only handle one at a time.
