Despite the RV having all the comforts of home and the latest and greatest gadgets, our RV is a wonderful way to escape and to unplug.
Unplugging can be a challenge especially when you are traveling with a teenager and soon-to-be teenager. Our youngest loves playing video games and our teen loves to text with his friends and search the internet.
And let’s face it. It’s not just the kids who need to unplug every once in awhile. We adults can spend hours with our faces glued to a screen. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, all of them make it possible to connect and share our lives with others. But for many of us the internet can be a major time suck and a distraction. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has opened up Google to get a quick piece of information and then two hours later wondered where the time went. Social media has allowed us to keep in touch with family and friends like never before, and how cool is it to have the history of the world in your pocket! Personally, I think it’s a great thing. Even so, nothing can replace face to face connection or time to unwind in the great outdoors. For those reasons, we do our best to make time to disconnect and unplug.
