28800Re: If you plan on arriving at Tuolumne Meadows on Sunday, has anyone researched supply pickup option?
- Mar 21, 2013I just saw this thread and was wondering if anyone found out anything on this?
I realized not only am I going to be passing through TM on Sunday - but even if I took my time, the next day is Labor Day, so it's pointless.
I'm hoping to avoid having to wait until Reds for my first resupply (though with our quick hike it should only be about 5 or 6 days of food, which isn't horrible). What sort of items does the TM store carry? I'm wondering if I might be able to either pick up enough stuff there to supplement my supplies for the trip between TM & Reds (maybe buy supplies there for breakfast and lunches/snacks and already be carrying my dinners).
Does anyone know if the TM store hours are listed anywhere? Are there any other places there to eat/buy supplies I should consider?
