No mobile Internet connections.  No problem.

Well, there are still books and Scrabble games.

It is quite hard to live without mobiles and internet even for a few days. But as it is advised, we can still have books and other games in its replacement.

Ironically enough, on one hike, my son (who isn't much of a reader) took the book "The Hunger Games" and basically spent 4 days with his nose in the book.  If he could have walked and read at the same time, he would have.

I'd say that's an individual thing.  I use my internet connection constantly when at home, but really don't miss it when on the trail, or on the road.  I do now have business reasons to need to keep a little more in touch, but I can manage to dodge them for a week or so.
