In my experience, if you reserve a permit (3 weeks ahead, minimum) they'll happily leave it in the night box for you. If you don't reserve it ahead, you'll have to go in during office hours. (It's been a couple years, so this mgiht have changed--check ahead.)

Dang, I might be partly responsible for setting off this stampede.

Tank up at Gnat Mdw, the last water heading down. It can be 20 degrees hotter at the bottom. Watch out for snakes.

Have safe/great trips!

Maybe I missed it, but did you get into TV, and what was it like this year?
