1/3 cup each raisins, apples, apricots, dates and coconut.
Add 1/2 cup sesame seeds,
1/3 cup walnuts
2 cups peanuts.
For the glue, use 1 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup honey and 1/2 cup peanut butter.
Make sure the Scouts don't pack food in the same place as their socks and underwear.
Food and patrol cooking gear go in the top of the pack, and personal gear in the bottom and the side pockets. Reserve one side pocket for trail munchies: nuts, dried fruits, smarties, hard candies and chocolate bars. Each Scout should have his own bagful to ration out to himself so that it lasts the duration of the trip. Our favorite is GORP balls; chopped dehydrated fruits and nuts "glued" together with honey, peanut butter and melted chocolate chips and rolled in icing sugar.
