Don't sweat too much on resupplying from abroad, I looked at it and with Bob Shattucks guidancegave up on the idea as too much hassle and costly i.e postage, buckets, zip locks, and time. A colleague of mine in a large group bought all the stuff in Merced and just about filled a motel room when opening packets,repackaging and post boxing for the whole trip.
I supplied in Trader Joes in SF(4days) then resupplied at TM,(4days)VVR(4days) and MTR(7 days). apart from MTR I carried 1 day extra emergency food. Unless you have particular dietary requirements its not likely to be worth the trouble.
I think Bob ate my emergency days food sometime.(Only joking Bob I ate it at Base camp) Great trip and the smell of beer and pizza at WP will drive you on and your bear barrel will be empty!
