I accidentally went to KM last year because I got lost at Emmigrant  
Pass and ended up going down the valley to Kennedy Meadows. There is  
a nice store there with lots of food and a restaurant, plus nice  
cabins and campgrounds. The place was hopping. I think that unless  
you are very picky about your food, you could just buy your food in  
either location.

I was able to hitchhike from KM store to Bridgeport. I had some  
difficulty getting a ride from the highway there. There was a lot of  
traffic, but most of it seemed to be turning into KM. I think it took  
about 1/2 hour or so to get a ride toward the pass. I had to get  
another ride at the top of the pass because my first ride wasn't  
going all the way. Getting that second ride required me to walk down  
the highway to a safer location and then it took another 1/2 hour or so.
