As some of you might know I will be riding in the BF GAP / C & O Tour. I thought I would post question in a separate thread because it may be of general interest for the GAP / C&O.

It looks like I will be camping the first half of the trail and staying in hotels / B & Bs the last half. I won't be needing tent. sleeping bag and pad for the last half so might as well ship it back. Has anyone done this from Cumberland? If so, where did you go? Post Office? If so where did you get a box? This would have to be quick and easy as time would be better spent exploring Cumberland.

There's a Hallmark card shop in the downtown area that shipped my dirty laundry and cookware for me in August. They provided a box they happened to have lying around.

I think about ten bucks. That was what the US Postal Service rates were - the store didn't charge me anything extra, IIRC.
