    power down much?

    how long can you function and relax without being connected at all to anything electronic? sleep, emergencies, work, showers, sex, and takin' a sh#t doesn't count.

    right now, that just can't happen since my work inherently requires it.

    but when I go home at night, I avoid as much as I can.

    in the past, however, pretty regularly. I miss the riding/camping weekends I used to do and I plan to work those back into my schedule after I graduate.

    Since you disqualified any of the normal possibilities at home or in civilization, I guess you already answered it for everyone: NEVER

    Unless.... I am doing a day hike in an area where there is no reception or on a mountain bike ride in the wilderness. I use to have a bike computer attached to my handlebars but that had to go.

    However... even when I am riding or hiking, I have my cell phone with me for it's GPS location capibilites in case I get lost or disabled.

    So... in my world, it's ABSOLUTELY impossible to function without being connected to the electronic frontier simply because it's a necessity.

    OK, I've gone full circle with my reply here....
    life is... "All About Bikes"...

    When I am going to sh!t I check my pocket for my phone before I check for TP!!!

    And, the computer has music playing constantly at the house, so I guess I never really get away from it...unless Im riding, but I still have strava running on the ol droid.

    I don't check my phone or computer when I work or wrench in the shop. And that can be for many many hours. Like today, yesterday and Tuesday.
