A lot of us cares. The National Outdoor Leadership School and the Outward
Bound Schools as well as the Wilderness Risk Mangers have all discussed this
Camping is leaving things behind and experiencing the environment you are
entering. Some groups don't allow radios, some don't allow walkman. The
above groups don't allow cellular phones. NOLS lead 3000 people throughout
the entire world last year, OB over 30,000.
You explain to everyone that the following things are not allowed. Explain
it to the parents etc. To date there have been no lawsuits over the issue.
In the West, outside of LA National Forest, Cellular phones are worthless
weight. They don't work in the canyons and they don't work away from cell
You would be better off training people better and taking emergency
provisions and first aid supplies then phones 99% of the time.
Not having a cellular phone would ever amount to criminal neglect.
I enjoy meeting other people in the wilderness. I don't enjoy bringing the
city with me.
