One of the things that worried us most about taking the workamping gig at Amazon’s distribution center in Kansas was their strict no cell phone policy. That would mean for 12 hours a day for a month, we would have no contact with the outside world – a very weird concept for us digital nomads. Afterall, we generally chose our camping spots based on where we can boost up the best signal so that we can remain connected digitally to our friends, family, colleagues, clients and news of the world.
Working 12 hour days at Amazon’s distribution center over the past month has forced us into a digital fast.
And it was good.
The first couple of days we’d spend every last second in the parking lot with our iPhones, soaking up as much bandwidth as we could. We’d both grimace as we turned them off and put them in the center console to enter the gigantic warehouse. And then we’d rush out as quickly as possible after our shift was over, checking e-mail even before we’d start the windshield defrosting the ice that had accumulated overnight. And as soon as we got home to our campsite, we’d both be online trying to catch up with the world.
