things to send Bill while he's on the trail

Yesterday Bill and I went through a store and he pointed out a subset of some good things to send him while he's on the AT. he keeps telling me new things...

Jolly Ranchers
Strawberry Frosted pop-tarts (fruit flavors are good, the rest are too sweet)
grandma's old-fashioned oatmeal raison cookies
little debbie cakes
Any nuts, especially walnuts - highest protein per pound
dried fruit
combos with no salt on 'em
sunflower seeds that don't require shelling
Easy Mac N Cheese
little salami sticks, pepperoni
beef jerky, but not more than a 1/2 pound at a time -- too salty
canned chicken
Chicken and Tuna packaged in foil pouches
Tuna helper
canned bean paste
double-stuff oreos
lipton noodles
instant mashed potatos

Nutra-grain bars in red flavors
snickers bars
Nature Valley granola bars -assorted
assorted oatmeal pouches
