The resupplies may be far off the trail but the side-routes are  
usually lovely. One seldom-used side-route for PCT hikers is Bishop  
Pass. It's absolutely beautiful on both sides. You can send a package  
to Parchers Resort, which is only a mile down the road from the  
Bishop Pass trailhead, and they have a small store and you can  
purchase a shower as well. It's a long way to Bishop from there but  
you can hitch a ride fairly easily if you need a full-service town.

Since you won't be rushing through the area, side trips for resupply  
may be welcomed. A chance to see even more of the area.
