Once our "idea" was locked in, Neal Campbell and I left southern California for a weeklong trip. Everything else was unknown. No technology...no phones, GPS, swell reports, Yelp etc.
The only thing "set" on this trip was surfing the biggest waves we could find. Everything else was decided by word of mouth: where to surf, where to eat, what roads to take, where to stay and so on. The first day we felt a weird, almost "unsafe" feeling, but by the third day we decided this wouldn't be the last disCONNECT trip we'd take.
It spawned a new mind-easing way to travel. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is truly looking to get away and tune in to where they are and what they're doing.
