Salina is lacking in more services than merely cellphone reception. On a long stretch of highway between Salina and Green River, Utah, there aren't services of any kind for more than 100 miles. Not being able to call for AAA makes your trip a lot longer when you run out of gas at mile 68. This unique expanse of asphalt has improved its cell signal in the past several years (rumor has it), but not by much. Travelers are still routinely stranded, making for some pretty interesting hitchhiking stories, we'd imagine.
