>I've seen your name around a lot on some of the responses. Have you
>had a lot of experience on the trail? If so I was wondering if you
>could answer a few questions I have.
> A friend and I are planning to hike at least the Oregon/Washington
>section next Summer, 1999. Early preperation I know, but we are both
>college students and need to know how much money we will need to save
>up. Equipment wise were in good shape. We only need a few minor
>things. We have experience backpacking and climbing in Oregon and
>Montana. I don't feel the physicial part will be too tough as long as
>we eat well and get rest when we need it.
> So, how long do you feel that the OR/Wash section normally takes. We
>move at a good pace, but would like to do several other hikes.
> Next, how do you recommend we purchase food to start. I have
>experience with back-country meals and we have a decent menu. But, is
>freeze dried best. Should we try to dehydrate stuff ourselves or gjust
>buy stuff in bulk from companies?
> In terms of food drops and mailing stuff. Is it possible to drive the
>route and drop food at the post offices or is sending it better and
>cheaper. Also, how long will the post offices hold your packages? Is
>it necessary to contact the post office in advance? If so do you have
>some addresses and numbers? Is it a good idea to send stuff back once
>you are done with it or you don't need it? Is it even possible?
> Thanks for your time, I appreciate it. If you can't help me with
>these questions sorry and do you know anyone who could?
