The Cell Phone Call of the Wild
from the getting-back-to-nature dept
An interesting story in the Washington Post about people who go camping and bring along their mobile phones. Some people think that it’s a safety device helping people who are in trouble. Others believe it’s pushing unprepared campers to do more dangerous things because they always think they can be bailed out with one call. Others are just annoyed that this connection to the “rest of the world” is being brought into these secluded getaways.
