Get Paid $1,000 to Digitally Detox in an RV
By Trevor Wheelwright | Satellite Internet
Have you found yourself gazing down at your phone’s screen time report asking, “I spent how much time scrolling through social media?” More of us than ever are working and staying at home during the pandemic. This means we’re logging far more screen time than usual, leading to “Zoom fatigue” and less time staying active.1,2
A digital detox may be in order.
Many Americans have already gotten the itch to get outside, causing RV sales and rentals to skyrocket in 2020.3 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.
One random winner will get paid $1,000 to give up technology for a weekend and camp in an RV at a US national park. If that’s you, you’ll rent an RV (which we’ll reimburse you for) and head to the National Park campsite of your choice on the dates you choose. After you get your tank refilled by the digital detox, we’ll have you use a mobile hotspot (or hit the local gas station or cafe for Wi-Fi) on the third night to share your experience online.
We’ll pay you $400 upfront and the remaining $600 upon completion. You’ll also get reimbursed for your RV rental, your mobile hotspot, and food (up to $1,000).
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).
While that may sound like an easy task, you have to ask yourself, “When was the last time I went 48 hours without checking my phone?”
We’re hoping this opportunity encourages you to step away from the social feed and out into the world. Think you’re ready for it?
Who we’re looking for
We want a weekend warrior ready for awe-inspiring outdoor action in the national park of their choice. Whether you’re a city slicker, a suburban student, or a rural resident, we welcome anyone to apply who’s looking for a little more nature time.
To start your digital detox, you must be eligible to work in the US, 25 years or older, and able to drive legally in any state you’ll travel through.
