Mail Drop Fun

Mail drops, wow, what a royal pain. They’re kind of fun, kind of not, and definitely a necessity. Some people rely heavily on mail drops throughout a section hike or longer backpacking trip, while others use them sparingly, resupplying in towns along the way. I’ve found a mix is generally best and using post offices and reliable senders is a MUST! Fun fact – post offices will hold thru-hiker deliveries for 30 days (i.e. you can mail to a post office in a trail town and go in/pick up at the post office).

Check guidebooks and be sure to map out your average mileage ahead of time. Creating a sharing a Google calendar is a great way to keep everything organized for your food angel back home. Overall, they are often a must and key to resupplying specific items and gear.

One thought on “Mail Drop Fun

  1. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
