Re-supply Yosemite

Postby TenderPaw » Mon Mar 14, 2011 1:25 pm

Afternoon everyone.
I'm still putting together my plans for this summer and have a question for you. I will be getting to Tuolumne late September and have heard that the store closes around that time. If Tioga Pass is closed to the east will I be able to hop the Yosemite bus into the valley for my re-supply? Also if I mailed my re-supply to Tuolumne and knew ahead of time that my schedule would not allow me to pick it up in time, do you think they would move my package to Yosemite p.o. if I called a couple of weeks ahead of time?

Joel

the store usually comes down around the 24th of sept. It was closed when Markskor and I rolled through later that week last season. All really depends on the weather, as to when they close.. You might not know unless you call them pre-trip, and get the logistics.

Not knowing your trip plan makes it harder to make other suggestions.

Tioga Pass will be open, the earliest it's closed was 17th Oct 2004.
Buses stop running around Labor Day, so I would not count on getting any commercial
transportation late into September.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Rlown, this trip is the continuation of viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5778 ... long story short I will be hiking north from Onion Valley to home (Tahoe).

I will be re-supplying at Taboose Pass, Bishop, Red's, Tuolumne, and Kennedy Meadows.

Maverick, thanks again for the suggestion on breaking up the Gardiner-Arrow l.b-Bench-Lakes Basin-Dumbbell-Amp-Palisade-Dusy-Bishop section into two. I have a re-supply coming [-o< to meet me at Taboose Pass that allows me to take up to twenty days to wander the area.

As far as the Tuolumne re-supply goes I think I will either mail it to Yosemite Valley or Lee Vinning. Does any one have a preference?

Thanks again, I'll keep you all up to date as things change...
