Eat on the trail, at your desk, at your palette, on night watch. Homemade and portable, gorp is good food

Goldfinger Gorp
    Think of it as a no-cook dessert you can eat while taking a brisk, fresh-air walk after dinner.  It’s also perfect for lunch boxes, after-school snacks for the kids, a pick-me-up at the beach or desk. This makes 26 portions, enough to last all week. 

4 cups caramel flavor miniature rice cakes
16 cups popcorn (no oil, no salt, or the “lightest” available)
1 package dry butterscotch pudding mix
2 cups butterscotch-flavor chips
2 cups chopped Butterfinger bars
2 cups chopped Nutter Butter cookies
    Put everything in a large, clean bag and shake gently to mix well. Package by the cupful in snack bags. Makes 26 cups.

Be prepared for emergencies, power outage, boondocking or a long voyage. Order  the Survival Food Handbook, a guide to shopping the supermarket for stow-able foods. No high-priced survival rations needed. 

A tip for gorp lovers: measure and package gorp in snack bags and add a wrapped hand wipe.
