What to Do

I have a question: How do you spend time in your trailer after you're done with all of your activities and/or it's too rainy/cold, hot, etc. to do anything outside?..do you read, cook/bake, play music, play instruments, etc.?

I usually sit (lie) on the couch, until I can muster the energy to get up and go back in the house...

So much to do, so little time....

If it is rainy or cold, sunny or warm... always stuff to do!

I like to:
  • read
  • drink hot tea
  • look at the scenery
  • listen to music or a good mystery on CD...
  • scour the maps for the next adventure
  • if I have my laptop, work on my family tree program
  • talk to my husband
  • dig out the munchies...
  • walk in the rain...
  • and of course, there is always the "classic" nap
My husband likes all those things as well, but you might also find him
  • drawing or sketching
  • napping
  • napping
  • napping
  • napping
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

It seems that there is always something to fiddle with on my 78. I start with reading or making the list, followed by a nap. A snack after napping, then reading the compost list, ahh.... time for a nap. So you see there is always something to do, simply followed by a nap

Yes, napping is good!

One of the reasons we go camping is to get away from it all.... take life a little easier and enjoy where we are and what we are doing! The other thing that I didn't have on my list is talking to other Airstreamer's or showing another camper our Bambi. Visiting with new friends is always fun and relaxing.

I agree with you about the visiting with new friends!..the campground we frequent in Manchester near Pt. Arena where we go abbing always has fellow campers to visit with..there are a couple of Airstreamer's who've camped near our site, and it's fun to see what the inside looks like in the different trailers! I thought our 22.8 ft. Safari was tiny, but Bambis are even smaller and cuter!..does yours have a shower?..my cousin has one, but I don't remember seeing one(this was about 20 years ago that I went inside his)

Reading- -There’s so many good books written over the years. I’ll never have enough guilt-free time for my selfish self-indulgences. However, if I have company I’ll provide lubricants and it isn’t difficult developing conversations which may range to how-to fix what ain’t yet broken to subjective Kierkegaard and to dark Schopenhauer. But don’t avoid Sartre.

I remember when I was very new to the chaplain/ minister thing and a newly married young man asked if my wife and I ever ran out of things to talk about. Being a neophyte to my position I thought he was being sarcastic, sadly he wasn't. In my experience of marriage, then and now 37 years, we never have enough time to just talk and never run out of things to talk about.

Ah reading is always good. There never seems to be enough time for that at home...too much else to do.

Also I reorganize the cupboards (one more time, lol) to find the best way to pack and store everything. There is always a better way to organize!

And I let the little kids watch a video sometimes if there are hookups.

Hi Merry-Can,

Funny you mentioned about rivetting..guess we get a lot of CA road vibration, I'm always finding popped off rivets on our floor!!!..wonder if it's only older models like mine that have that problem?
