This year all mail was to be sent UPS and Fed X. Most of you decided to
send your resupply boxes through the Post Office. We do not have home
delivery. Jerry has been sick the last year and it is difficult for us to
carry 800+ boxes home from the Post Office. Being you either can not read
directions or find it too difficult to send it correctly these changes for

Baring Post Office (which we don't have a PO Box at).
Stevens Pass ONLY accepts UPS and Fed X also. Hikers are trying to use USPS
for Stevens and their mail is ending up in Leavenworth, 35 miles away.
Hikers need to recheck all addresses that their resupply boxes are being
sent to before they mail them. Email or make a phone call and make sure you
are sending your resupply boxes is the right place. Otherwise it may not be
