GORP - How to make it

Gorp is one of those strange names for trail mix.  Sure you can go to any grocery store these days and buy a variety of trail mixes but there is something both satisfying and comforting about making and packing your own Gorp.  What I am going to list here is my receipt for Gorp taught to me by my father.
Here is what is required.

1 container of peanuts - 16oz
1/2lb bag of M&M's (no peanuts)
1/2lb bag of skittles
1 bag of raisins 

mix these ingredients together is package in Ziplock bags.
Some additional ingredients that can be added are

1 bag of butterscotch chips
1 bag of shelled sunflower seeds
1 can of cashew nuts

Gorp is good for both the sort term and long term energy needs of the body that is burning up to 500 calories an hour.  And making it yourself is cheaper per pound than buying it pre-mixed.
