PCT Food Drops

People have asked us if they could mail us care packages.  The answer is yes.  There are a few things to be aware of.

The most important thing is to address items to Tim Umstead or Ann Holston.  Make it “OR” not an “and”.  If an item is addressed with an “and” the Post Office will require both of us to be there to receive it.  Most of the time this will not be the case.  One of us will be off getting food or a room and the other will be getting the mail.  Please use “or”.

Some of our food drop locations only receive UPS, others are only US Post Offices, and still others are both.  I will note which food drop is which.  In some cases if you do not send the item by the correct carrier we will not get it.

To make sure your mail gets to us in time, mail it about two to three weeks before our arrival date.  Most places will hold our mail for 3-4 weeks.  One thing to remember is our itinerary is not written in stone.  We will deviate from it.  You will need to keep an eye on our location and our itinerary and adjust appropriately.
