Here is a question for all you CDT veterans, how
easy is it to pull a cell phone signal on the
trail?  Is it worth the weight to carry a phone? 
Also, are there carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Moble,
etc.) that have better coverage than others? 
Suggestions for a specific phone?

Also, any thoughts on the advantages carrying a
GPS unit?  Again, would it be worth the weight,
or would a good map and compass be enough to fit
the bill?
