24 hours Unplugged

I’m camped at Petoskey State Park which is almost as far north as you can travel in Michigan before crossing The Bridge and entering Yopper-land. I’m closer to the North Pole than the Equator, if the road signs can be believed. The park is quiet, the weather absolutely perfect, and it’s one of those excursions that needs to be shared with friends if only to reflect upon the perfectness time and again.

No TV reception in the motorhome. But Sat radio and decent cell service. Deep down inside I want to turn it all off, but to be honest I don’t know if I can. I’m plenty old enough to remember when these things didn’t exist and a hardbound book was the entertainment you took on vacation. What happened? Crazy, right?

Unplugging now. Check back in 24 hours and I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Time’s up

Well, it was a split decision. Broke the curfew several times to respond to texts from friends. Checked ball scores once. IMHO 9 out of 10. The more time that passed, the less anxiety I felt. I was living in the here and now, and it was cool!  Can’t say I will give up the web, I’m addicted. But I just might schedule a weekly no-web day, and work up from there.

Writing the story on good food, good drink, and good people as I tour the country in a small RV. With no hard deadlines or flight schedules, I can take my time to explore local restaurants, farmers’ markets, the old-fashioned butcher shop, microbreweries, winemakers, the roadside BBQ, and more. Help me turn RoadTravelFoodie.com into a virtual neighborhood on which to share experiences and explore with others.
