In both cases we sent a check about a month ahead of our arrival with a note 
saying that we would be sending a package shortly.  Then we sent the 
package.  The notes and checks were prewritten and in the bounce box, ready 
to be sent when the time was right.  Remember that it can take at least two 
weeks for your package to arrive at its destination.  In both cases their 
mailing address is not the same as their resort location.  They have to 
bring back the maildrops when they have time/room.  Even sending Priority 
doesn't really help that much.  IOW, don't send the Big Sandy box from 
Rawlins (if northbound) - it won't be there.  Send it from Steamboat or 

If you are southbound, I would send the Benchmark box and check before you 
leave home and the Big Sandy box/check from West Glacier or before.
