With a very large and very full grain truck.
He didn't find it until nightfall.....went searching for it with a flashlight and found it face down, glowing, and making twisted and strange music.
It was squished.
I am not happy- for the fact that we now have to put money out for another piece of technology we seem not to be able to function with out.
But it was a good day for him.
He stated it was really nice to get his work done...and not once did he have to answer a phone, talk to a soul, or run and do things that weren't on his list to do.
(I'm sure he'd get to a point where it would become necessary once again...but for today- he had a holiday.)
I remember when as a teen...I never left the house without a quarter.
Pay phones were on most corners, and if one wasn't handy when you needed it....Tough luck.
You ran out of gas- you either caught a ride or walked.
Of course now we don't have such worries.
Unless you run over your phone......
My last post took me into these photos and it made me miss my mountains.
I never got my hike in this year...but have made it a point to backpack into the wilderness for a few days- at least once every summer the last couple of years.
This is one place I have found where my phone is rendered useless.
(Well...I DID use it for these pictures:).
But of course there is no signal as you are miles from civilization. One of the main reasons I go.
To get away.
To not have a phone in my hand or a computer at my fingers.
The first while I'm out there it's unnerving.
What if I should need something?
Who would I call in an emergency?...there are bears and cougars and a ton of steep rock.
And then...you look around you.
You actually stop...and hear Nothing.
No one is near you (besides your hiking companions).
And the beauty takes your breath away.
And you don't NEED anything but the pack on your back and your feet to carry you and your eyes and heart to take it all in.
You store this all up in your mind and soul,
so that when you DO have to return to civilization....
you have enough stored to help you make it until the next trek into beauty.
When you can once again leave your "technologically advanced" life behind.
And your phone doesn't work.
Of course...it could all be very simple to fix without taking the trip
or running over your phone with a grain truck.
I could simply just shut it off.
