Simple Recreation Ideas

We just moved an hour away from any town in the hot central California weather without a house. We are basically living outside sleeping in a trailer and screen house. When we are there we have been very bored because everything we have has been packed up. Is there any simple Ideas for recreation or fun that we can do when were not working on building a living space?


Thank you,
Gloria from Nowhere Land

Cutthroat poker with nails/rocks/leftover wood bits as "money"?

you don't say what the local is like so i can only go by what i'd do here in the ozarks so........find a swimming hole....explore the local woods and look for old orchards or nut trees you can gather from in season. look for dead wood for fires. collect pretty rocks for flowr beds or patios. see how many wild foods you can collect for one meal. go fishing. go hunting. read books. explore the local roads and see where they go. try new recipes. sewing, knitting crochet. paint. if you don't have the money for "real paint" make colors from mud or leaves or berries. make mud sculptures. (my daughter won a contest at the fair by making a bird in a nest out of mud from a neighbors tractor tire) build a b-b-q or a mud oven for baking. oh so many things.....when you use your looking at clouds and seeing dragons!!! good luck

Hi Gloria, I too live in central California and we moved onto our property 11 months ago. We too slept in a trailer while getting our current home up to living standards. In the evenings we were so tired to actually get bored. Though our children were bored often. You don't mention if you have children but younger children did some exploring and that kept them busy. Our teenagers read books, listened to music or did drawings. I'm guessing you have computer access since this is an online newsletter. There are so many sites online to get ideas for fun activities and you can even print coloring pages. You can also play games online as well. It does get better and hopefully you will have your home built before the weather changes. Good luck and hang in there.
