I have been thwe sole IT guy for a multi-state company of 300 users and 60 servers for over 10 years.
I DO take long motorcycle vacations (and yes I wear a helmut) and never know where I will be overnighting or have cell phone service and there is no room to carry a laptop soooooo ... IF my employer wants "cvoerage" we hire an outside consultant with limited admin access and a long list of tech support phone numbers to be on standby while I am gone.
IF this arrangement is unsatisfactory, then we will wither hire more help or I will find another job. I work long and hard 50 weeks a year and all holidays, I deserve that few couple of stress free days.
