Think what you like, but when I'm on the road or camping or anything similar, I leave the electronic devices behind - I prefer the silence. For me that's the way the world came and I like hearing the wind, the birds, the screech of the hawk, and the truck coming up behind me. If I hear a tune, it's the ones that pop up in my memory, as though reciting an old story handed down. I also happen to like chatting with my perennial partner, my wife, about what we're doing. I prefer the endorphin load as well - it's a very restful place. It's a sad commentary on the modern world that we have little appreciation for silence and that we have to be entertained everywhere we go.
I should add that this comment was inspired by a conversation over dinner with another cycle tourist while we were camped at Elk Prairie CG hiker-biker site on the CA coast on 7 August. She had noted how many folks were touring down the left coast and were so absorbed with their iPads and such ("making love to their iPads . . (not her comment))". She was in her 15th month of riding around the world - www.getjealous.com/judezebedee
