[pct-l] High Sierra how busy?

I think most permit problems come from folks hiking from the Eastern side
from Lone Pine/Whitney Portal. My guess is that it won't be a big problem
coming from the West from Crabtree Meadows/Guitar Lakes. But, then I don't
know how you get the permits. It don't think it is from the Park Service at
Tuolumne - how about National Forests? Try this Web site:

Apparently there's something wrong with Yosemite's online backcountry
reservations system and I cannot get through via phone to anyone there.

Anybody have a sense of how likely it is that I could show up at Tuolumne
Meadows in early August and get a permit to thru-hike the JMT? I could start
on any one of 8 or 9 days. Is that flexible enough to ensure I get to hike,
or is it totally crazy and busy?

I thru-hiked the PCT in '99 and would love to pass back through the High
Sierra, lingering. But I'm not getting anywhere with the paperwork necessary
to set up the trip in advance.

Boring topic -- sorry. Any info. appreciated.
