Gorp Balls


1/3 cup each raisins, apples, apricots, dates and coconut

For the glue, use 1 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup honey and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Shape into balls; nice snack for hiking trips

GORPS??? kiddo camping you melt the chocolate to hold these things together? I'm tempted to make these the nerxt trip out!

We started camping in our Motor Home when our little man was just 15 months. Having the motorhome really helps. Since being disabled I can't travel long distances sitting up so this was a life saver for me. We used a travel crib for him and it was heaven! DH and I were able to enjoy all the pleasures of cool weather and even got to play in the snow. Imagine little ones face the first time he did a face plant right into the snow bank!
The cool mountain weather gets my vote everytime. I get enough of this hot sun and dry wind here in Texas, Thank you. Whn we travel I want seclusion and cool cool streams to fish, open windows at night to sleep and no a/c running constantly!
