Being disconnected for a few days

Posted: July 4, 2008 in Uncategorized

I just got back from a mini-vacation to a relative’s cottage up in the Muskokas, and it is incredible up there this time of year, as long as you don’t mind being eaten alive by bugs that is.  Being not very tasty they seemed to leave me alone for the most part, but the others were getting attacked quite a bit.  I guess that’s why most people stay in the sun or in their cottage.

Anyways, while there i was cut off from the internet and it made me realize how often i check my email, jump on Google to check something out, read the news as it happens, or just goof off blogging.  We really are dependent upon technology for our day to day info, etc, and at the few times when i was even service-less on my blackberry i felt really cut-off.  that’s just scary.  To think, it really wasn’t that long ago cel-phones weren’t all that common, and now here i am concerned because i can’t get on the internet when i’m out in the middle of the woods.  I don’t think its just me though being as i saw a number of satellite dishes, antennas and phone lines running deep into the darkest and thickest of woods.
So much for getting away from it all – seems we are taking it all with us nowadays.
