Once an Application has been submitted, anyone with the Application password is free to make a Reservation through RAMS. There is no need to wait for the Application to be approved.
The only way to make a confirmed Reservation at Gump Station is through RAMS. Informal discussion of potential dates can be useful but RAMS is the only way to confirm a booking.
Once the Reservation request is received, Gump Staff will contact you. Please wait for this confirmation before finalizing your travel arrangements.
A single Reservation can have multiple people arriving and/or departing at different times. After a period when nobody from the group (Application/Project) is at Gump Station, a new Reservation should be submitted for the next stay.
