One of the reasons I wanted to stop in Kanab, other than the movie history, and the fact that John Wayne and countless others hung out here while making tonnes of movies...was that I wanted to get a permit for hiking the "wave". It was a lottery system. There are 10 permits available on a first come first serve basis. In the summers, there are over a hundred people vying for them. I missed mine today by 10 minutes because I was LAZY. I didn't get off my ass to go down there till noon. Mainly, cause I wasn't expecting to get one....I figured they would have been gone by 9am....Turns out, if I had been there 10 minutes earlier, I would have got one for tomorrow, but another couple beat me
Didn't win the lotto (had to be there by 8:45am). I even drove down there with my top UP. I guess I didn't have my second cup of coffee. I didn't even notice this MAJOR f..k up until I came out of the BLM offfice....I must have been quite the site. One fellow even commented after I had pulled it down...."were you the one driving down the road with your top up???" Yup. That would have been me.... I wasn't feelin' lucky....so I wasn't surprised by the fact that I didn't get the lotto...I just wasn't feelin' it. :(
I figured I would head off to view the "toadstools" instead, as it was on my way to Page.
