Can you go? be OUTSIDE MORE? outside the city limits, beyond the county line. No wifi, no smart meters, no gaming addictions, no traffic lights, no city noises. These were the early days of Total Escape, 1996. Two whole decades online, yep. Ancient!
Minimal or no cell signal in California's rural regions was common through the 1990's. There was no digital mobile cell network. Before the tweets, the constant memes and paralysis of our current, modern techno-crazed culture, DanaMite started this travel web site way back, two decades ago. Catchy phrases like, FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) did not yet exist.
Total Escape holds thousands of real photos of real places. Secluded destinations, camping and lodging, examining the best side routes, the maps (to get you out there), locals-only travel tips, festivals and events; juicy content specific only to California. Focusing on outdoor destinations, small towns and budget-minded travel since the beginning, we've recreated the weekend getaway - without the crowds. Escape the matrix, the city life, the traffic jams and learn how to avoid the tourist traps. Drive on past the factory outlet malls and the water slides, we've got much more to show you - out on the back roads, in the backcountry. Experience life: out of doors.
Enjoy rural California - more nature, less people.
