30 by 30: #30 Spend a day “unplugged” = no technology!

How about doing one better and basically doing a weekend?

We went camping over 4th of July weekend and were in a dead zone for cell phones. We had to drive about 15-20 minutes just to get cell phone service. (because we have some other things going on here at home, we did need to make the trip once each day, but those are different circumstances and since the vast majority of each day was spent in a no cell zone, I’m counting it as the “unplugged” goal on my 30×30 list!)

It was great. We had perfect weather (mid-70s F during the day with a good breeze). It got pretty chilly at night, and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn it was probably about 45 degrees F!

This is the 4th year we’ve done this camping trip, but the first time doing it over 4th of July weekend (we usually go the 2nd or 3rd week of July). We’ve been going with my cousin and her family. It’s great newer tradition that we’re happy to have started. (she has 2 stepsons in their teens and 2 other younger kids under the age of 3). Next year we’ll have a new camper (our baby!)

We mainly relaxed, hung out, played some games, attempted a hike (we were led to believe it was fairly flat and easy for small children and pregnant women..not so much! I had to turn around a certain point because it was just getting too steep for me and I was getting uncomfortable).

I did take a few pictures to share, so here you go!
