I have a few people that want to send me care packages on the trail, so I'm trying to figure out what the good spots to have them send them to would be.
I figured Standing Bear Farm would be a good spot, based on resupply between the Smokies and Hot Springs.
Obviously I'd prefer hostels over just a post office due to hours of availability, and contributing to the economy of the people that help hikers.
So what other hostels should I pretty much guarantee to plan a stop at, and tell people that they can send me a care package there?
My plan is to essentially assign the people a location, so I don't end up with 3 packages at the same spot, which would suck because I wouldn't be able to fully appreciate everything. I'm also looking for advice on how to inform them of what to pack, what not to pack, etc.
