A few days back @solderpunk (of Gemini fame) announced ROOPHLOCH (Remote Outdoor Off-grid Phlogging Challenge) 2022.

Announcing ROOPHLOCH 2022

[…] make a phlog post between September 1st and September 30th (inclusive, in your local time zone), while being outside of any permanent man-made shelter and without plugging a computing device into a wall for power or internet […]

How you achieve this is kind of up to the individual

ℹ There was also a second big issue with that doomed attempt. I was actually inside at the time. Somehow I forgot about the "Outdoor" aspect. I guess this is the problem with overly complex acronyms. Or at least that is my excuse! 🤪

Anyway, on the second try I did something more successful.
