We had a very positive experience in Yellowstone in 2009. We arranged a permit a 
week in advance over the phone then modified it in person at Mammoth Hot Springs 
(we had come from Big Sky on the Butte super cut off/Big Sky varient).
The rangers were interested in our hike and keen to help us out (maybe being 
foriegners helps too!) and we came away with a good experience overall. We saw 
almost no one else at our designated campsites by the way.

As Iceaxe stated, I found a good strategy for SoBo is to camp at the edge of 
and do the dayhike to the backcountry office. The backcountry ranger office was 
easy to work with and I was able to get a permit that fit my own personal pace 
and schedule
quite well.

The one ranger I saw in the backcountry adjusted Tradja and Jess' permit so we 
could all camp together.

Overall, my experience in Yellowstone was quite positive.
