John, I visited VVR in October, just as they were closing up shop for the
year, and they had every intention of being open next year. Having made it
through the season without incident, Peggy decided to not sell the resort.
I would highly recommend VVR as a resupply point, rather than Muir Ranch,
which charges a hefty fee for holding a resupply package. Also, quite a few
hikers have told me that they found they were unwelcome at Muir Ranch. VVR
is a wonderful, warm, and hiker-friendly place. As for fresh fruit--this
past summer they set out bowls of it for hikers to help themselves, but they
only sell packaged food, drinks, etc. They have an extensive beer
selection, though, and beer counts as a vegetable, I think.
