Fourth in a monthly series

Here is the latest set of numbers showing the permits remaining for the 153 days in the reservation season. 63 entry points x 153 dates = 9,639 numbers representing the 41,049 permits offered each year.

This data was collected one week before the beginning of the month of July. To provide some consistency, I freeze in place the numbers for each of the previous months as collected one week before that month's start. In the end, the study will wind up displaying the number of permits remaining for each of the reservation months at a consistent point — one week prior to its onset.

I plan to present two more monthly snapshots of permits remaining on Jul 25 and Aug 25.

The rationale for the study may be found in previous installments for 2019:

BWCAW Permit Availability Study May 25, 2019

BWCAW Permit Availability Study April 24, 2019

BWCAW Permit Availability Study March 25, 2019

So, here are the results for June 24, 2019 (16 weeks into the reservation period). I hope you'll enjoy exploring the twenty-one pages of stats on the permits remaining at each of the 63 individual entry points and the three summary pages at the end:

Hey schweady -- This is pretty cool! Any way you'd be willing to add the Day Motor EPs to the next batch?

Maybe next year.

I do have the July 25th overnight paddling permit numbers recorded but I'm just now getting around to making the images and posting them here. (A number of outdoors trips got in the way of being online much, so that's maybe a good thing...) Stay tuned. And, this past month, reservations.gov futzed with their online grid and made it much more difficult to copy-paste the numbers. They made it enough of a pain that I know that this will be the last year I collect the OP data.
