One of the experts tracking the teams said basically the only way to avoid capture was to go back to the 1800's. No electronic devices, no shopping, and stay out in the boondocks.

Pretty-much.

The problem is that one mistake dooms you -- once they are able to place you in a given metro area you better get the **** out of there FAST and not be detected in terms of direction on the way out, and that's very difficult because you don't know when/if you've been detected.

Use of any sort of plastic payment is an instant bust, as is any sort of commercial communication device. There are things you can do with "burner" phones but they're only useful if you want to communicate with other members of a "cell" (e.g. your team); as soon as you use them for social media or anything similar you're cooked.

I could probably win the $250k and I have a pretty good idea how I'd go about the attempt. I might get caught anyway but with a second team member the odds of success go *WAY* down because if EITHER person makes a mistake you're both done.

There's a third problem in a "voluntary" situation like this which is that the odds are high that you're going to find yourself in a situation where you need to commit a real crime (B&E, theft, etc) in order to maintain rational comfort or even just basic odds of success. Now you not only have guys trying to bust you keep you away from their $250k you also have guys trying to bust you to put in jail for REAL.
