How many people – including backpackers – go out into nature, on the trail, into the woods – and are completely unplugged? Cell phones offer GPS. How many walkers march to the tune of pop music piped into earbuds from an iPod or cell phone?
It may sound scary, the idea of unplugging for a week or so. But it is completely worth it. Let me share how I have spent my summer vacation for several years now.
Each July, we pack as much as we can into our teeny Tardis – actually a Nissan Micra. It’s fuel-efficient, and very cozy, especially when packed for a vacation.
