BLUFF, Utah (USA Today) — It’s the digitally-connected adventurer’s paradox: Escape from the grid, yet have our cameras and smartphones ready to record and share every gorgeous sunset and snowy peak.
I recently spent a week driving 1,500 miles in the Western U.S., spending much of my time in national parks. Some of my stopovers were so removed they allowed the parks to qualify as “dark sky” locations. In other words, there weren’t a lot of power outlets.
It was bliss. But I needed electricity in a big way: Laptop. Ipad. Still camera. Video camera. Iphone.
I came out of the trip dusty and tired, with some great pictures and video, a story and some lessons on how to hit the road without being tethered to the wall.
