i used to live literaly in a desert with what i thought was nothin, the more i looked around the more i started noticeing that old car sitting out there and the fence that has no real purpose as obstacles and things to train on. just keep your eyes open and think creatively, im sure you will find somethin

Vault cows. Much harder since they're a moving target.

That is the most genius thing I have heard all week.

ditto (idk how to spell it  :P)

find a tree if its standing climb/run up it if it has fallen down vault it
its that simple (and that's what i do the bark also builds callus FAST)
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.

use parkour as a means of transportation. run from where you are and where you want to be, that way when you find yourself in an urban area you will have an ASS load of stamina.

my mind is constantly moving, one day my body will be strong enough to keep up.

I just re-watched this video my friends from the Sierra foothills area of California made.  It's proof that parkour is better in a natural setting!  I'm super excited, because the next SFPK monthly jam is at this place, next weekend.  Hope this gives those in rural areas some ideas and inspiration.  Remember it's not about looking for things in your environment that match what you've seen in videos, it's about adapting to your environment and allowing it to teach you how to move.

Tractors are amazing for parkour. No joke.

Plus!!!  Hay bales = The cheapest, softest crash mat money can buy.
Unless you can be more specific about what kind of hay bale you're talking about, this is bad advice. Also are you sure you don't mean straw bales cause if you're not careful hay bales can cut you pretty badly.
