The PCTA.org now just communicated that the date when the 2019 permit application is opened. On November 14 2018, at 10:30 am US Pacific time. This will be at 1:30 am Swedish time, so it’s going to be a late night between Tuesday and Wednesday,, with little sleep, between November 13-14 here in Sweden
The website is opened for application. 35 permits per start day will be available an 15 more on January 15. As there has been an increase of permit applications every year as the PCT hike gets more and more popular, they now this year are introducing a waiting room at the website.
I will aim for a permit mid April. Very exited and hoping to get one.
