If I leave the house and drive north towards my hunting area I lose cell service in around 5 minutes. Some days that feels bad, other days great!

I remember many years or decades ago, on an island on the Upper Potomac, gunning with a friend who owned about the first portable phone thingy. He would report in every duck we called in. It is amazing what we take for granted today. Some guys follow the Rock Island bidding while in the field. I won't mention any names.
