Best place in Lone Pine to ship JMT Trail end stuff is where?
From Yosemite Valley, for the 2 days prior to hitting the JMT, I wish to ship a few items (soft pack cover, clean clothes, cell phone) to a place in Lone Pine that is open till about 7-8 pm at night, so that when I get to Lone Pine, I can pick up the supplies and use them that night. I intend to stay in a hotel in Lone Pine and I have no problems paying $25 for a place to securely hold onto the items. I am most concerned about my cell phone which I don't want to hike with due to it being useless on the trail and unwanted weight. Several others in our group will be in the same situation. Some places I wonder about: Whitney Hostel, Whitney Portal Store, Elevation Backpacking Store, Dow Villa Motel. Who recommends what and why, and how to ship? Thanks! PS, This will be for mid-August, 2009.
