PCT 2014 Itinerary

Here are the towns where we plan on picking up mail drops (packages we made for ourselves filled with food and other resupply items), and our estimated times of arrival.  We will try to update our estimated arrival times as we go.

We have had friends and family express an interest in sending us goodies and words of encouragement along the way.  If you send us something, it will mean a great deal to us.  I have made a few notes below our itinerary on how best to do this.

If you would like to send us something, please:

  • Email us or send us a message to let us know if you are planning to send a package. We may not get boxes we don’t ask for at the Post Office.
  • Try to send your box two weeks in advance of our estimated arrival date.  We will try to update our ETAs along the way.
  • Boxes should be sent via USPS Priority Mail through the US Post Office.
  • Note that we have a few places ( Shelter Cove Resort in Crescent Lake, OR, Burney Falls in Burney, CA, and  Kennedy Meadows Resort in Sonora, CA) that only accept UPS packages.
  • Letters can be mailed via regular mail.
  • Put both of our first and last names on the package so either one of us can pick it up.
  • DO NOT send anything we have to sign for. USPS Priority Mail is ALWAYS the best option
  • On the box/letter write “HOLD FOR PCT HIKER, ETA: (expected arrival date)”

Things we would love to get:

  • Anything edible in small quantities
  • Letters from you! Words of encouragement mean a lot to us 🙂
  • Small clips from the newspaper with interesting stories or cartoons

Don’t send:

  • Anything heavy
  • Anything in large quantities

Remember, anything you send us, we either have to consume, or carry with us!
