PCT 2009 Base Camp please? on 04/01/2009 21:48:35 MDT Print View

Coming from NZ to walk the PCT sometime early May. What I need is somewhere to leave some things I won't need for hiking, someone to post me a few things along the way (second and third guide book, etc), and a US address to possibly get a few things posted to, save getting them posted here only to carry them with me on the plane. Someone living in So Cal would be easiest I guess.

This would be a massive help and forever appreciated.
I can be found here or at michaelstwalker at hotmail dot com.

Thanks.

I can't help you (I leave for my PCT thru in 2 weeks), but if you don't find someone here, you might try mailing the pct-l list (see here)--lots of helpful people out there.

PCT bounce box on 04/02/2009 09:05:10 MDT Print View

if you are unable to find anyone, you can always put those items in a bounce box. Not ideal, but better than nothing.

Yeah, I will be using a bounce box. I would just rather not have everything in it, all the time.

Michael,
I will be living at a base camp in Colorado 3 miles from the nearest dirt road so I can't help you out but if you check out the ADZPCTKO ride board, there are some people who offer to put hikers up and then give them a ride to the border to start their hikes. I bet you could contact them, arrange transport and they would probably let you have a few things sent to them.

Hope that helps. Happy Trails,
NITRO
