Going camping naturally takes you out of your comfort zone. You'll feel a little disconnected at times especially if the area you're staying at doesn't have any cellphone, internet coverage or power. Even if they do, if you choose to ignore your phone, you'll still feel as if you're miles away from civilization. Even if your main purpose for hiking or camping is to get away from it all, there is still some wisdom in bringing a small portable radio with you on your hike. A good reception and battery life is what you need. You may not get much FM frequency going but AM reception is what will give you valuable information on local news and emergency reports.
