- Jun 22, 2013Try Minimus.com I've always used the .5 oz packets and just put one in each of my individual plastic dinner bags. Minimus also carries small plastic bottles of olive oil.

Subject: [John Muir Trail] Re: resupply questions
Thanks John and cjoslyn99 (and Wendy for off board reply). I suppose I should have worded my question a little better -- I've had chip bags and sleeves of coffee burst by driving to 9000' or above from the bay, so I was concerned about an oily mess. Also didn't want to end up lugging 3 or 4 of those 4 oz Nalgenes. I'm looking for a couple really small, recyclable bottles of EVOO that I can mail -- just wanted the reassurance that would work. As always, the JMT group comes through with timely, accurate info.
