Where would you go right now to unplug
Besides the Alabama/Panhandle beach towns, where would you go right now to unplug for several days in the US considering the COVID restrictions? No family just yourself or with one other person.

I’m going to Victor, Idaho with day trips into Jackson Hole when we feel like it. Just being near the mountains helps me unplug.

About to drive from Houston to Breckenridge CO the first week of July for 16 days. Mountains are calling.

I just booked Lake Tahoe but North Cascades looked great. That park only gets 30k visitors a year in a normal year.

See my backpacking/hiking thread, I am unplugging for a long time.

A cabin in Northern Wisconsin. Not far from the lake. 2 mile drive for cell service.

re: Where would you go right now to unplug
I wish I could afford to do this, just walk away from my job and my life for a while, travel, find myself, and then come back when I’m ready. I was always jealous of those rich kids whose parents would help them backpack through Europe or take a “gap year” to travel and have fun while still young enough to enjoy it and have adventures. I spent my whole teen years just waiting for my life to start so I could have those kinds of experiences, and my 20’s were, for the most part, no more interesting. I never had both the time and the money at the same time to really do much of anything. Now, I’m just a lost person with no identity, no direction, no goals, and no ambition just living one day at a time.... or at least that’s how the indie road trip film protagonist starts. I’m sure there’s an oversexed best friend, someone getting cancer, and a manic pixie dream girl to serve as a catalyst for something along the way. All I know is the ending hints at finding inner peace or some shit, but actually has an ambiguous conclusion that isn’t really fulfilling in anyway, feels unearned, and in no way justifies the journey to get there or the time and emotion investment of the audience.

Start saving. Sell shite you don't need. Start exercising. And prepare to thru hike the AT next year. You have time to plan and prepare right now.

Do it.

It isn't expensive. It will give you 5-6 months to "unplug".

Nothing is stopping you.

re: Where would you go right now to unplug
Hotels are expensive, gas is expensive, camping gear is expensive, rvs are expensive, food isn’t cheap either. Obviously, if I wanted to get away for a long time, I could put my furniture in storage and give up my rent house, but without my 9-5 job, I don’t think my savings would last very long. The exercise thing is important and something I absolutely should do, and the Appalachian trail would be awesome, but I don’t see myself being able to pull the trigger. I love my home. I just want to be able to get away for a while and still be able to come back to it. I had my chance at a new life with a job at the Grand Canyon a year ago and I didn’t take it. I have completely regretted it ever since.

North Carolina mountains. I unplug up there better than I do at the beach. Maybe rent a cabin for a week but find some place to camp a night or two.

Or just take a week now and get out there and hike a section of it. See if it's something you might want to do.
