The whole point of RVing is to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Whether you’re longing to take in the lovely smell of a campfire in a warm summer evening or want to enjoy roasting a hot dog over an open fire, the best thing about camping is the ample opportunity is provides to allow you to connect with family and nature.
But when you camp, how often do you rely on technology? We’re not talking about your RV. We’re more so talking about smartphones and iPads. Perhaps on your next camping trip you could try camping unplugged. Bring your phone in case of an emergency, but stick to being present for those who are with you.
If you use your phone as a camera, turn it on airplane mode so that you don’t feel the need to respond to incoming texts and messages. Tell those who might be worries about you what you’re doing, where you’re at, and when they can expect to hear from you.
An unplugged camping trip provides a delightful way to connect with those on the trip. What’s more, you can take the pictures you take and then share them with friends in person when you get home. Sharing these types of things up front instead of on social media makes them more special and creates shareable moments for those you’re sharing with.
An unplugged trip isn’t hard to take. All you have to do is commit to it. Make sure you find things to do as a family so you don’t get bored. And, even more importantly, don’t rely on your phone for fun. Bring books, games, music, and movies. And plan to do some local sightseeing.
If you really want to go all out print out maps ahead of time so you can easily get to your destination.
