[Cdt-l] Cell phone on the CDT?

Actually, I discovered in 2011 that there is no longer a pay phone in Monida. The guy who lives in the caboose will let thru-hikers use his phone if he is home. He wasn't home when I got there. I convinced a tourist taking photos of the old store fronts to let me use his cell phone. I too do not own a cell phone.

>There are several places on the CDT where hitching can be difficult, but having a phone isn't likely to make a difference as there are few regular shuttles out there. We never carried a phone and didn't miss it. The one place where people often call for a ride, Monida for a ride to Lima, has a pay phone.

>> I want my upcoming hike to be cell phone free (see complete freedom). There were a few times on the PCT where being able to call someone, a trail angel or motel that offers rides, was nice and fortunately I was hiking with a phone carrying friend. Are there any places on the CDT where I should plan differently if I don't carry a phone, say a dirt road with no traffic and a long hitch? I don't want to depend on a resupply I can only get to by calling for a ride.
>> By the way, my plane and bus tickets are booked. I'll be hitting the dusty trail May 10th! NOBO from Columbus. Thanks to everyone who has helped with prior questions of mine.
