I'm thinking the odds of snagging those dates are low. Have you floated the Smith before?
I've been down 8 times.

And yes, late June is impossible to get. Out of the 8000 or so applicants each year, I bet 6000 are for that week. I always put in for those dates but have never drawn.

Late June on the Smith is one of the most coveted permits in river trips.

You do realize that your winning means there were losers. This is a bad thing. No doubt your elation is also wracked with remorse?

Amazing picture!

Remorse?


One of the traits of a winner is persistence. I've gone 0 for 12 on drawing this permit. Until yesterday.

If losers keep fighting and never give up, eventually they too have a chance at being a winner. Good lesson for everyone.
