        We ate it at summer camp in the 80's so its at least that old. It seems to fit the 70's back to nature era well so thats where I'm gonna believe it originated. I hear granola(something) raisins and peanuts.

          Wikopedia wins again. Yes, GORP is the trail mix of Good Old Rasins and Peanuts, and it does come from California in those 70's boom days of backpacking. I add M&Ms to mine for a carb and energy boost. That and some antelope jerky will keep me going all day.
