Does anyone know where I can find a extensive list of PCT resupply points with addresses etc? I know www.planyourhike.com have a list, but they have split them onto separate pages, and I'm trying to be lazy so could do with it all on one page. Any ideas?
this should work for youhttp://postholer.com/databook/resupply.php orhttp://www.pctplanner.com/

That Postholer one should do the trick, thanks! I think my original list was from the Yogi books, but the postholder list includes several more resupply options which could mean carrying less food for sections, which is a bonus! :)
It's a good idea to double check directly with the addressee (such as a phone call) before actually shipping boxes. Some of the smaller post offices are on a closure list. I looked at a couple of the addresses I know on the postholer info, and it appears that some of the info is still from 2010. Even if the info has been updated, circumstances can change rapidly!
That is sound advice Mary, some of the resupply points were still closed late into the year of 2011 because of the snow levels lasting into summer. Also some of the info in yogi's book reference places that are no longer in business.
Thanks Mary & Chris. Yeah, I'm aware of some of the closures of post offices etc. Now I now have a fairly comprehensive list, I am going through them all and confirming addresses, phone numbers and opening times etc. :)
