We throw around that phrase to mean out of immediate communication range. Has anyone treated an extended tour as an opportunity to get off the grid? In other words, has anyone taken a long tour with no cell phone or email communication, relying on pay phones, letters, or nothing?
Originally I thought it'd be nice to have a laptop or an internet phone to keep in touch while touring but now I am thinking it'd be even nicer to get off the grid completely. We survived without cell phones and email before so why not take time to free myself from these connections while touring for 2 months?
I'm curious to know especially if anyone has attempted this what the biggest pros and cons were.
