Exactly my point. To truly go "Off the grid" people need to realize that ALL, and I mean ALL, of their electronic communication devices need to be shut down and gone. That means no cell phone, no iPad, no lap top, no note book, no PDAs, no PCs, no GPS, NOTHING. Otherwise you are kidding yourself about being "Off the grid."
