Did that when we lived in Colorado. It was pretty easy to find a place where you could not see or hear evidence of the hand of man. I'd go fly fishing in some very remote streams in the mountains where you could not prove there were any other humans on the planet--couldn't even see any airliner contrails. It usually took a couple of hours in the quiet for the residual "noise of civilization" to drain away from in my mind, but after that . . . great! I can still do that around here, but it's more difficult to see no trace of civilization, since you can stand on a beer can and watch your dog run away for three days. Typical visibility is between 80 and 150 miles. The quiet, however, is remarkable. When we have to go to "town" (Lubbock), it's tense until we get back out to the country and are able to relax again. It's gotten so we won't go unless we have no choice and it's really not bad compared to what most folks endure. We are blessed and I know it regardless of how much whining I do.
