Think you can live without your access to social media for an hour? How about one day? How about two days?
SatelliteInternet.com, a satellite-internet comparison resource operated by Clear Link Technologies LLC, is ironically seeking one brave soul to partake in a “digital detox” camping adventure at a U.S. national park, with “no technology allowed” for the duration of the weekend.
If you feel you can't make it, then a "digital detox may be in order," the company said in a blog post. The person who is chosen will receive a $1000 reward, with expenses reimbursed if you decide to rent an RV — along with food expenses.
“At SatelliteInternet.com, we know many folks who camp with RVs also need satellite internet to stay connected, but given how much time we’ve all spent online in 2020, we wanted to find a way to help someone tune out the world and get back in tune with nature,” the company writes on its application page.
There is one stipulation: the applicant must be 25 years or younger and be a licensed RV driver; in the event that an RV has to be rented for the trip.
Once chosen, the lucky winner will then be instructed to venture out into a national park of their choosing — on the weekend of their choosing — and experience all that nature has to offer. They just can’t tweet about it, or photograph it, or participate in any TikTok challenges under the stars.
On the third night, the winner will be able to make contact (using a mobile hotspot) to make it safely out of the national park.
“We’re hoping this opportunity encourages you to step away from the social feed and out into the world,” writes the company, which, again, provides internet resources as part of its business plan.
If you are anyone you know is wishing to enter for a chance to win the position can apply now through Sept. 23 on SatelliteInternet.com’s website.
