So sad story. I won the permit lottery, got the dates i wanted, and was promptly laid off.

Happy ending though, i found a new and better job (yay!) but there is no way i can take any vacation days so soon.

So! I have an overnight permit for June 5th/6th.

Is there a responsible way to give it back? Or would someone on the forums who didn't get a date want it? Not quite sure how that would work exactly, but i would love to help anyone out!

Thanks everyone!

Sublatum, congrats on landing a new job!

I take it your permit is for an overnight hike.

The one way for someone here to get it is for you and that person to coordinate -- you call the Wilderness Permit office (760-873-2483) and release the permit, and then the other person call in immediately and request it.

Give it a few days to see if anyone is interested, and then the right thing to do is to just call in and release it.

Being it is so early in June, and the snow levels, there probably won't be that much demand for the permit. If you check our Unused Permits numbers for 2010, you can see that during the first two weeks of June last year, there were 20 to 30 unused permits available every day.

Thanks Steve! You are right, it is an overnight permit.

I hope to try for it again in August or September and get a walk in for me and my girlfriend. Any time later in the season you might recommend?

Last half of September is often nice. Dry, cool, fewer people.
