"Hikers Tote Navigational Phones; Rescuers Pine for Simpler Days"
By ROSS KERBER
here's an excerpt:
In response to annoyance calls, a form of
Yankee call-blocking is catching on: the
Randolph (N.H.) Mountain Club now prohibits
cell phones at its cabins on nearby Mount
Adams. Over the state line in Maine, Baxter
State Park also banned them after an incident in
which tired hikers tried to muster an Army
National Guard helicopter to fetch them from
the summit of Mount Katahdin.
