Default How did folks make out with permits?

How did folks make out with permits for the National Parks last week?

I found it went fairly smoothly compared to previous years and I managed to get all the permits I needed to hike the Great Divide Trail. The most popular trails filled up fast, but the site seemed stable under volume. Folks at the Jasper and Banff trail offices were great in issuing the random camping permits I needed for some parts of the trail on the Howse River and Six Passes

Congratulations on getting everything lined up! About how many days to you expect to be on the trail?

As most of my Canadian hiking is done in September, I often wait and pick up something in a more casual fashion closer to the date.
