> While on the recreation.gov website, there were numbers under some of the x's on the calendar. Does anyone know what these numbers represent? Is it spots filled, available or something else?
The numbers below the x are the number remaining available, but not reservable until the proper availability time. On April 1 at 7 AM, the 'x' should have changed to 'A' (but only if you click the "Update Availability" after the 7 AM time.)
If you check what is available in October, you can currently see the examples. Since October is 6 months away, those permits become available on a day by day basis as we move through April. For example, on April 2, the October 2 permits can be reserved at 7 AM.
Here's an image capture...
The days with R are completely reserved. Quota is full.
Those with A: the number shows the number that are still available to be reserved.
Those with X: the number shows the number still available, but the X means they cannot be reserved until later.Edit 4/2/12:
Inyo changed the 6-months out rule today: Those October slots are available NOW.
