I would not have thought so but, What happens when you turn yer phone off for 8 days? https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02...-after-missing-persons-report-issued/13171718 "I told my colleague I wouldn’t be able to reply to his messages, but he just didn't think it was possible to be travelling without reception for eight days," said Mr Keddy a bicycle tourist from Canada. Mr Keddy’s colleague contacted his mum in Canada, and then contacted Victoria Police to report him as missing. He is safe an well ... but he was not that remote in Australian terms. He rode into the small town of Woods Point and attracted some attention from locals. "Everyone was pointing at me and then the police showed up. They knew my name and I thought, 'uh oh… what have I done now?'" Mr Keddy said a big reason he loved being in remote areas of Australia was because he could disconnect from the world and feel truly in the moment. "That’s part of the appeal," he said. "I enjoy it more if there are minimal distractions."
