Most of my resupply boxes for hiking the AT, PCT, and LT were sent to post offices along the way. To resupply, I would either walk or hitch rides into town. Below, you will find out how and where I sent myself gear and food along my Pacific Crest Trail hike. Generally, I leave my drop boxes in my parents living room before leaving on a trip. The boxes are left open so that supplies can be adjusted throughout the summer. My parents have a schedule and ship the gear out for me. Most post offices will hold boxes for up to a month, so its easy to send a box a bit early just in case it takes extra time to the reach remote post offices in the mountains. It usually works out. Sometimes boxes are lost, sometimes they are damaged, and sometimes post offices are closed for a day or two, but I think it is worth it!
