Things To Do While Away.

I have been wondering what people do at night when they are camping by themselves somewhere and apart from reading or playing cards I didn't think that there was much else to do.
But with maybe 3 hours to fill before *sleeptime*  I think I'll need something

I have been thinking about it for awhile and this week I have implemented an idea that has always been in place but that I was unsure of.  Having a bit of a win last week and then having the granddaughter out here and cutting, gluing and "making a card for Mummy" decided me.

I am not very crafty but I have set up a *craft box*  In it I will have different papers, scissors, pencils, glue, small stuff I find, etc.   I will try and make cards, decorate writing paper, make envelopes...
It will also hold a pad and stamped addressed envelopes as letter writing was one thing that I thought I would do.
In there I will keep a pack of playing cards, and a few small games that can be played by 1 or 2 people.

Has anyone any thoughts on this?  What do you do when by yourself and it's too dark outside for anything?


  1. I like to sit outside and watch the stars.

  2. They are usually only a problem at dusk. We use aeroguard or just burn mozzie coils.

  3. I better put some in the van then!

  4. What about a tape recorder so you can record your feelings at night time sitting outside enoying the wide open sky and recant on the days trip and events. Too dark to write...

    Just make sure you take lots of spare tapes. I would need them as I get verbal diarrhea when I start talking lol.

    Wonderful for the kids and DGK's to listen to...
