When I take a vacation, I like to get out of the state, preferably out of the time zone.

A survey, reported by SWNS Digital, indicates workers don't feel like they're un-tethered from their job until they're at least 1,000 miles away. Half of the respondents said they've checked their work email from a hotel room. One in four has checked it while poolside.

One of my favorite vacations is to return to my childhood home in the Adirondack region of upstate New York. It's about 1,300 miles from where I currently reside in Lafayette, La. The Adirondack Park is a 2 million acre AT&T "dead zone."...YAY!!!
