What to do in summer without internet

I am gonna be in a house with no internet, computers, TV, mp3 players,...etc any sort of media.
Also, I won't have any access to furnitures- except two beds and a kitchen table.

Any suggestions?

( I have 96 SAT Practice tests and a set of weights, but that is all. I am planning to buy some James Bond novels too.) Also I have 9 AP study guides.

I will be with my family.

I have fresh clothes and new colognes.

    Summer reading books? Write your own book. Go swimming. Play basketball. PLay card games, etc.

    Are you going to live in the middle of nowhere? :)

    I've lived in an isolated, horribly traditional village where the villagers never use any kind of technology for their agriculture. But 1-2 of them still have mobiles!

    ^Actually, not really.
    I am in a city, but my parents just moved there so I am staying there for the summer.

    Why are you planning to live in a traditional village?

    hahah you could try walking to the library sometimes?

    I think I might be stuck w/o internet for a while as well b/c I'll be in Dubai in the summer and last summer i tried to find wi fi hot spots but all of them were locked and we only have dial up...which is really slow and i had to install something from the etisalat for it to work...lol. But i think i'll live again. Last summer i also went a good month and a half w/o any internet at all ( spent rest of the time in africa)...i survived.

    I think you'll be fine. Since you won't have any internet your time is going to be used a lot more efficiently. (:

    Library is right next to my house, but last summer I stayed there for 9 hours straight everyday.
    I mean, there is nothing else to do!!!!

    Oh, so many possibilities...

    Go to a hobby store and buy any of the kits - models, Chinese brush painting, etc.

    Bring any (or get at the library) of the "teach yourself to..." or "learn to..." books such as:
    Artsy types: Paint, Draw, Knit, photography, chain-mail, etc.
    musical types: harmonica, recorder, sing, yodel, banjo, guitar, etc.
    Educational types: Learn sign language, or any other language, Learn to write Japanese or Korean or calligraphy

    Read all the classics, get a creative writing workbook and lots of blank journals.
    Make up your own board/card game.

    That actually sounds pretty cool. Read books on stuff you're interested in, work out a ton, learn some crazy new hobby...

    Do what they did in the 70s.

    or if you already have a 3g phone, see if it is tetherable if you hack it.

    1. bring ****-ton of reading books (pref smart-looking)
    2. go to beach with girls
    3. ???
    4. Profit

    In all seriousness though, if you think reading a book at the beach is boring, you're not going to enjoy life much.
