We are getting ready for takeoff. Unplug all digital devices, including laptops and cellphones. You may keep the iPod turned to its play function as long as it's the Allman Brothers or an alternate jam band with guitar solos that last 22 minutes. Keep your bucket seat in its upright position and your window in its rolled-down, wind-in-the-hair position. We should be off the grid shortly, and there we'll remain until sometime next week. Signing off, out of reception. -kit and j.r.
