You don't have to stay in the shore area once you've made your per hour minimum. I drove home after making mine. You just need to stay above 70% shore completion ratio. I used the time to drive home and eat something. Got two rides around my house still and still qualified.I succesfully hid while staying online from 1230-300. 10 hours online 12 rides.Not 1 ping while "hiding". Watched youtube and via optimim wifi.
