    Kind of strange why you would use a 15 year-old in California as the basis for your article.

    We got to the airport 2 Saturdays back, and I found I left my phone at home.
    Panic.
    But---3 days in the Santa Cruz redwoods, and then 4 more in the wine country of California's central coast with out the phone were very enjoyable without it

    It was a bit odd at first, but became much easier with each passing hour.
    I realized how much of my time on the phone was really unimportant.
