I was looking for where to resupply after Muir Trail Ranch (going south), any suggestions? I don't think there's somewhere I can just ship a bucket slightly on trail. What towns make good short detours? Is there somewhere good to drive and then bury/lock up food? Thanks.
Johnmuirtrail.org, "From here you will have to carry food and fuel for 100 miles, so depending on how fast you are hiking, that could be significant. We like to take our time, and some friends volunteered to meet us at 2 spots along the way. If your friends live far away, that is not likely to happen for you. Here is our description of the trail over Bishop Pass. You could try to hitchhike to Bishop and get resupplied, or you could share the cost of having a packer bring you some stuff. They can carry a significant amount of food, so we shared the cost with the other 4 members of our group when we did a 10 day trip from Bishop Pass to Whitney Portal. They will also pack out your garbage. For information on the various pack stations, just Google "Sierra pack station" and you'll have to sort out which packers service each part of the trail."
^ is that really all I get for choices? I'm going solo so a packer split by one isn't super cost effective.
