New Thing #166: Going Off The Grid

Don't expect to hear from me this weekend. The family and I are in the woods of Vermont.

I'm sure there's no wireless where I'm going.

I expect cell phone service will be spotty.

It's rare that I'm as off the grid as I expect to be this weekend.

I'll tell you more about the trip itself - the where, the why, the what - later in the week.

For now, I'll just tell you what I'm expecting: Some time to read, experience nature,  some old-fashioned disconnectedness.

I've set my fantasy baseball lineups through Sunday. I've lined up my New Thing posts to go through the weekend. I'm ready to not be online again until Sunday night.

I don't even know if there will be a television where I'm staying.

The only thing I'm expecting to connect with these next couple of days is my family.

I'll fill you in on how that goes when I return.

(Update: Turns out there is weak wireless. But after I write this I am shutting this computer down and pretending like I'm off the grid for the weekend. I saw three deer out the window of this house. This is definitely not a weekend to be spending on a computer.)
