[pct-l] Bear Boxes Giant Forest

Well, multiple trails start at Giant Forest. From what I've gathered there
should be some bear boxes around to cache food at the trail head. But I
would like to get some confirmation about it. Unfortunately you do not 
provide any information on my questions.

I've searched and Lodgepole has a post office. But it is only open during 
weekdays and depending for which starting day I'll get the permit that may 
not help me. 

Oh, I also don't intend to hang food at all. Ever. I have a Garcia and
just ordered a BearVault BV200. I'm a little nervous about the failures
mentioned in the past days. Maybe I'll return it for a Garcia, but I liked
the weight savings and (supposedly) larger size.
