Hey - that comic hits a little close to home. A couple of weeks ago we went camping for the weekend at a state park. Of course the cell phone said "No service" which is normally a good thing - no chance for work or other interuptions - just a weekend of family and no worries. Ok - only a few worries about keeping the kids from fighting too much.
Anyway - I grandfather was in the hospital recovering from surgery and I was a little worried about him. We were driving up to the park office from the campsite and found that we had *some* signal at one point. However - it wasn't enough to make more than a 30 second call. So up the nearby moraine to the top and I was able to get good enough signal to find out that grandpa was not only doing better but home from the hospital. Granted I looked a little wierd just standing on top of a grassy hill in the middle of the park but it sure was nice to be able to make that call.
