SlideshowNo Service, No Problem: 5 Places That Want to Be Unconnected

Salina, Utah
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.

Bakersfield I spent this weekend driving through Bakersfield and the Cental Valley. Calls dropped every time! Not good.

Re: Social notworking But not the butt licking.

Re: Social notworking Yes, and that distinct attitude of not giving a butt lick about what others are doing or what they may think of us is a trait to admire if not emulate.

Re: Social notworking We still agree on cats though, right?

Re: Social notworking Ha. Point taken. My apologies.

Re: Social notworking Your ageist observation is sadly inaccurate. Geriatrics are just as prone to being mastered by their smartphones as the less experienced segment of the population.

Re: Social notworking mendyk - I was thinking anyone over 35, or cats.

Re: Social notworking A nonconformist, perhaps. Or the great-great-grandchild of Greta Garbo. Or Tiger Woods. Or cats -- definitely cats.
