Most permit systems exist to limit usage, not to track you. Search and Rescue should never be expected - regardless of whether you have a permit or not.

comment How do I prevent rocks or sand from getting in my boots?
Try these: rei.com/product/778003/… used for years - not too hot. But make sure they crank down low to the heel if you are using them with tennis shoes.

comment Surviving a forest fire by starting another fire
+1 for Mann Gulch reference. However, note there was some controversy about whether the fire he set is what caught up to those trying to make it to the ridge... or whether it mattered.
