Resupply boxes stacked

Verifying locations for resupply

After deciding to verify some of the locations on the trail, that they doindeed take packages. Among them was Yellowstone. As some already know, you can't send packages for general delivery to the Post office in Grants Village and Old Faithful village, so I called the post office in Mammoth St. Yellowstone, WY. I talked to 2 different postal employees. The way to send a package to Yellowstone is send it asgeneral delivery to the mail office in Mammoth. Then, a few days before you get there (Dubois Wy/ Brooks ranch or Lima Mt), call them and ask them to forward your general delivery package to (Old Faithful or Grants). It should take a couple days to get there, depending if it's over a weekend. I was told General delivery can be held for 15 days, so be warned about sending a package too early...

Checked on Camp Sulu (Sulu Mt), no problem. Brooks Ranch (Dubois Wy) -Also no problem, and you can send your packages early if you want. Benchmark Ranch, Mt, now charges $ 30 per package. South Pass City Historical site also will take your packages. So It appears that (at least for myself) all the special cases are taken care of.

The resupply boxes are basically done. Although I keep finding the 'one more thing' to add to a box, but the boxes have the food, maps, and various supplies.

South Pass City, Wy
Just South of the Wind River Range in Wyoming. South Pass city has reconstructed the city and is cool to look throuhg, but has next to nothing, except some candy, and Soda at the store. 2 years ago, I was North Bounding, and Atlantic City, which is about a mile off trail and 3 miles South of South Pass city, has a hiker friendly restaurant called Miners Grubstake, wifi and I was able to do Laundry and get a shower if I remember right, at the RV Park, just outside the East Side of town. Miners Grubstake appears to only be open Friday-Sunday though.
Sulu, Mt.
If you go to camp Sulu, don't send packages to the post office, unless you want to walk 3 miles each way, or get a hitch. Send it to Camp Sulu as they will hold it for you.https://www.sulamt.com/Yes, I know its a 17 mile hitch, but if you got a better idea, let me know...lol
