10 years ago I would agree that someone else's cellphone might,
somehow, have some sort of measurable impact on my hike but today with
mortgages, wife, dogs, a business to worry about, etc. a cell phone
with an extended battery is something I have already accounted for in
my pack weight. If I can only make phone calls from mountain tops and
towns, so be it. At least I'll be able to call home if I want to.
Of course I'll try not to offend any fellow hikers on my hike but, as
I've read many times, hike your own hike.
