    Don't presume that you will have cellphone towers nearby -- there is a lot of open space, even along major highways (including interstate), that has no cellphone signal for any carrier.

    Heck ... I can't get cell coverage on the beaches around here, just minutes out of the city.
    And in the high Sierra, it's rare to get coverage. Maybe way up on some peak where you
    can see the view in a 200 mile radius, if your batteries are still good. Depends on the carrier. Spotty at best. Out in the desert West, esp in the canyons, no good. If you get
    lost, just ask a rattler for directions. But carry a rattle to English dictionary, or perhaps
    rattle to Spanish in some parts of the Southwest.

    It is heartening to find a person who truly knows black bears. The difference between the black bear and, for example, the grizzly bear is profound. Sometimes a black bear can be approached so that you can feed him (but do not do that!), and sometimes a person can feed a grizzly - but it was the intention!
