    Here is another trick i use. Usually reserve america notifications come out at 5.30 am EST and by the time i check my email. Long gone.
    So i added a rule in my email to forward this to my cell phone . In my case verizon is phonenumber@vtext.com. so i get a txt msg which i will check when i look at my phone around 6.30 or earlier. All cell phone carriers have a free email to txt number.

    Yes. You can setup notification email on reserve America. They run a job middle of night that sends out notification. Then I setup forward to phone so I get a text.

    I will be looking into this! Can you specify a date and park?? You are leaps and bounds ahead of me when it comes to computer savvy!!
