Road Trip

I just turned loose of my almost 17 year old grandson for the weekend. He and his 20 year old cousin took off with a caravan of friends headed for "Cave Fest"...sort of a mini Woodstock down in the Shawnee National Forest.
The boys joked about taking g'ma with them, but I told them g'ma has had plenty of good times of her own. I'm done with sleeping on the ground! I did loan the boy one of my old tie-dye shirts.

The kids are camping out, and everyone is bringing something. I sent 2 cases of Mountain Dews, a large pkg of Oreos, 2 big venison salamis, 2 boxes Ritz Crackers, a jar of peanut butter, jar of Welches Grape jelly, and two loaves of white bread.
I guess I should have sent something healthier, but that stuff won't spoil and takes no preparation.
Anybody have any ideas for something I could send on their next camp-out?

I imagine there will be some beer there, mudbug.

You're right, it is a beautiful forest. The southern tip of Illinois is in the foothills of the Ozarks, and we have lots of scenic places.
Here's Camel Rock in the Garden of the Gods:
