I have just done multiple resupplies for a very long PCT Section. The
most cost efficient method is to use the 'flat rate' Express Mail
boxes that are available free at the Post Office. They come in various
sizes. You can cram as much as you want into the boxes and it is one
rate. It is cheaper than using your own box.
On the PCT they use the plastic buckets as a 'bounce box'. It is not
a resupply per se but a way to forward things that they may or may not
need at a certain point in the hike. This can get expensive now as
the Post Office has changed the way they bill the packages this year.
The activity on the group will pick up in the spring. keep in touch.
