You’re on your big adventure and you lose or break your gear on day one of your 15-day expedition. With online shopping and two-day shipping you can fix your problem with the click of a button, except you’re in your Airstream without an address.
Before you write off your adventure as a lost cause, consider calling the local UPS store. UPS will hold a package shipped to you at their address for small one-time fee and daily hold fees if you can’t pick it up upon delivery. (Note: Call ahead to ensure the UPS store in your upcoming destination offers this service).
