Last winter I prepackaged all my breakfast food and gorp in zip lock bags.
They appear to be airtight but there apparently is some air leakage through
the plastic itself or the zip lock. Anyhow, from sitting around so long, the
gorp and cereals were stale by the time I started eating them. After a few
weeks I told my wife not to send anymore gorp. (Stale peanuts aren't
appetizing even when you're hungry). The cereal was edible. The dinners I
dehydrated were stored in the freezer until mailed so that turned out alright.
If I would do it over again, I would have the cereals and gorp prepared just
before mailing to try to ensure freshness.
