"Hikers Tote Navigational Phones; Rescuers Pine for Simpler Days"

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.
