Lost in Space while Truck Camping

I lost my phone 5 days ago and learned a great deal about phones and truck camping and personal goals.

I missed taking pictures for the blog. I missed not taking notes for the blog on the phone. Then, after about day 3 of no phone I realized how much it was dominating the day to day life of someone who was living in the woods. I was checking how many miles I was walking. I was making notes on work to do on the blog. I was listening to podcasts at night, falling asleep to newscasts from NPR.

After day 4 it was obvious. Something had to change. How present was I? I was distracting myself from the present by the phone.

Then I found it on day 5.

And went back to using the phone as before. Aggh.rainbow

    Yes, but now you are aware of its large presence in your life and can relegate it to only another tool, to use when needed. I tend to forget it for days at a time. A computer has 1000’s of uses but I only use email and a few other things occasionally. Have a lovely holiday in NM and enjoy the wassail at the library !

      Love being in contact with friends … when I have cell service. That is one of the joys of this type of camping … when I have cell service, and a phone, I can connect.
