There are two long stretches without bear boxes that make it
impossible to hike the PCT without a canister for "proper food

The first is long, but doable, 30+ miles from Agnew Meadows to Tuolumne meadows.

The second is impossible to do without camping, 50+ miles, and that is
Glen Aulin to the northern boundary of Yosemite NP at Dorothy Lake
