I’m Unplugging for a Week

Heading up to a cabin near Wolverine tomorrow to spend a week with my family. It’ll be our first family vacation in 10 years.

I don’t think we have wi-fi and I’m actually glad. It will be nice to unplug from the tubes for a while. I have no idea if I’ll even have Edge data access to get to the Internet on my iPhone. I know I won’t have 3G, so checking e-mail will be very limited if possible at all. I’m taking my laptop in case I’m called to do something for work but I don’t plan to use it unless I get the urge to write some blog posts.

My iPad is coming along so I can catch up on a couple of James Patterson novels and Mom can maybe read his other latest books I have on there. I’m taking a couple of Scott Berkun’s books that have been sitting on my shelf for ages. A few board games and decks of cards will be packed; I imagine we’ll play plenty of euchre and cribbage. Hopefully I can talk someone into playing some chess because I’ve really been enjoying Chess with Friends for iOS.

What else? Steaks, bonfires, BBQ ribs, beer, s’mores, golf, fishing, wine, and most import… relaxation!

Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July!
