I hear you 100%. It feels shameful to admit I need these things. I will never be that person that brings the computer to play video games and a boombox to feel more at home. To fit more camping in, I bring most of the equipment so that I can work remotely. Kinda like what @DanSolarMan is reporting in this convo.
But for other stuff, I use radios for long pitch'd climbs when I can't communicate with the rest of my party by voice and I'm obsessed with photo, so I bring all that gear too.
I reserve weeks of backpacking each year as my complete disconnection from electronics. Except for my PLB (convo w/ reasons why).
