Yeah, Greg, You are right. Cell phones help eliminate that sense of risk, that sense of challenge, that sense of wildness, of being on your own, of being responsible for dealing with whatever happens. 

And though many have long since lost the ability to understand, your cell phone -- and the knowledge that the things exist, hidden in most packs, these days -- does the same to all other thinking, wildness seeking folks on the trail.
