These articles are great. Are they ever packaged up and provided as learning materials for groups like the Boy Scouts or Fish & Game Club youth groups?

I bet those grasshoppers would taste OK if you saute em in garlic butter, but I don't think butter'll keep very well in my survival kit.

I will stick to the marshmallow and sausage. Not hungry enough for that grasshopper!

I imagine if you had them all at the same time, the texture would be interesting, as well as the flavor.

When I was a kid we would roast old fashioned smoked sausages that way while the hounds chased a fox all night. Don't forget the hotdog buns, mustard and some chopped Vidalia onion. A pot of coffee goes good also. Last year I went home to Florida and my older Brother took me fox hunting. We had a fire, sausages and the works. The food was good but it was not quite the same because most of the old timers are now gone. My Bro still has his hounds and goes alone. The last old timer to pass was 89 when he had a heart attack in '07.

The grasshopper totally ruined my appetite for the marshmallow thanks a lot. But I guess I'll try it sometime though.

My local outfitter sells some high end chop-sticks that screw apart like some pool que sticks. The have thier own little travel case. They want almost $50 for them! I turned to the sales guy and said, "I carry a knife and I can whittle sticks." He had the grace to grin and say, "Yeah, you could do that."

Grasshoppers? No thanks.
(Man, I hope I'm never THAT hungry!)

I'll stick to GBD (Golden Brown and Delicious!)marshmallows.

And yes, cook things s-l-o-w-l-y.
(As usual, patience is rewarded)

Grown, self-proclaimed "outdoorsmen" being skittish at the thought of eating bugs to survive? Really?

What if you mix the marshmellow with the grasshopper. Put that on a graham cracker with some chocolate and feast down. You could always take some hotdogs and use the grasshopper as a condoment. haha
