I remember alot more than gadgets! I remember going out to play and being able to go several blocks from home, still be safe and my mom did not have to check on me every 5 minutes.

I remember going away for a weekend with a friends family and not seeing my family until Sunday night, no calling, no checking in they knew I'd be back on Sunday.

Me too. I remember doing some of my best thinking while I happily kicked around exploring some stream or another all by myself and no one worried about it.

Now that's something I really feel for the kids of today about. They can't go off by themselves.
