Between all of the Zoom calls and all of the television binges, we are starting to get a little bit tired of our phones and computers. If you’re anything like us, you could use a major break from all of the technology. Turns out, Satellite Internet has heard your pleas and they are here to help by offering a tech-free getaway – and they’ll even pay you to stay.
The offer may sound too good to be true, but it’s real. You’ll get $1,000 and the chance to enjoy the great outdoors in an RV! What could possibly be better than that? It’s ironic because they are known for offering high-quality internet connections in very remote locations.
According to the website, “The catch is that you won’t be able to capture Instagram-worthy shots on your phone or tweet about how fresh the smell of pine is—no technology allowed beyond what you need to reach your destination safely (at least until the third night).”
If you are selected, you are responsible for renting your own RV, just so you know. Satellite Internet is willing to reimburse you for the expense, at least.
From there, it’s time to head to the national park of your choice for a relaxing weekend. There’s no WiFi and your weekend will be spent on the outdoor activities of your choice. It would be nice to unwind outdoors, without having to keep social media up to date on our every move. The only technology that you are allowed to use is the GPS that gets you to your destination.
On the third night of the trip, you’re given the chance to offer online updates. The digital detox pays $400 upfront and participants receive the additional $600 when the task is complete. The RV rental is covered (as we mentioned) and you’re also reimbursed for your food and the hot spot fees. Anyone who is ready to unplug must fulfill the eligibility requirements.
Participants need to be over the age of 25 and have the ability to legally work within the United States. You must have also have the ability to legally operate a motor vehicle in the states that you plan on driving through. Head to the Satellite Internet website now to find out more about the company’s application process. You only have until September 23, so you will want to act fast.SKM: below-content placeholder
