* i would have put this under the mail drops forum, but there weren't any posts there and i didn't want mine to go unnoticed.
i was just wondering about mail drops. basically... what do y'all use them for?
i've only done the foothills trail, which there was no resupply on and we just packed in (and out! ) everything we needed.
if you're at a large enough town that it'd have a post office, couldn't you just purchase the things that you're mailing ahead to yourself?
i just can't think of anything that i would want to mail to myself that i couldn't just buy in a town? and i'm thinking about the cost of shipping something ahead vs. just buying it in town.
what kinds of things do y'all drop to y'all's selves?
