Desert Activity #27

When visiting the high desert there are many fun activities you can take part in. You can go rock climbing, see races at a dry lake bed, or start a meth lab. When I was growing up there, one of our favorite activities was hitting bats with pool skimmers.

Here are the steps so the next time you're visiting, lost, or have been kidnapped in the desert, you can do it too.

Items you'll need:
1. rocks
2. pool skimmer
3. sun setting
4. brother/friend
5. bats

Step 1: Collect rocks in your shirt basket(a shirt basket is when you lift the bottom of your shirt up past the navel to create a container).



Step 2: Ready your pool skimmer.


Step 3: Throw rocks 15 to 30 feet in the air.


Step 4: Bats will swoop down and try to eat the rocks because they think its a bug.


Step 5: Hit the bat with the pool skimmer.



Step 6: Give your partner a high-five.



Step 7: Repeat until your hearts content.

I still do the shirt basket. It's really good for legos:) My wife hates bats. This would be a fun activity for her.
