Ah, I decided to step out of the Matrix for a couple of years, and I was OK with it. Some people were not. After my travels, I am mostly unplugged. I dont have TV. I have internet, mainly for Adv Rider, and I dont miss any of the stuff on the idiot box. Nice thing about real Alaska, if you want to get lost, its quite easy to do.

In the late 60's & early 70's I had no TV or telephone,lived in a cabin on the Kaw river in KS. No indoor water or shitter-all that changed when I married! We still lived in the cabin for several more years but I tore down the outhouse,got a tele & TV too! It wasn't Alaska but still a nice lifestyle at the time.
TV: I/we watch very selectively via DVR with no commercials. Actually makes for cheap entertainment in the boonies. I did try watching Hoarders & American Pickers for a few minutes last night while wife was on the phone and about gagged. Too bad I've seen all the Seinfeld re-runs.

What if they expected to find a way to communicate and could not once they arrived at their destination?

It was a stupid knee jerk reaction on the mother's part, nothing more.
If my kids went quiet for two weeks I'd have Blackwater looking for them.

Called such for reason...

Get out of line.
Find your own - not one that's pre-planned.
