Today is the day that you can file for a backpacking permit in SEKI, and we have already filed for one. Not via the email system they suggest you use, because for some reason we couldn't get it to work. Either the Adobe Sign system was screwed up, or the Adobe system itself "wasn't abel to send your email."
So we filled on out by hand and faxed it in.
To be fair, we've never really had a problem getting a permit for any trip we wanted to do. Yes, there was that fire in Yosemite that prevented us from taking one trip which was already permitted...and we've had to choose a secondary trailhead for one trip. That's true.
But there are usually only two of us. And we often go during the week, rather than on the weekends.
But at least once a year we want to have a trip on the books, already approved, and waiting for us. Now we do.
