Add the outer banks of South Carolina to the list of inaccessible 
places.  I took my cell phone and computer to Edisto Island thinking that 
I'd be able to get some work done on vacation.  Not only were there no 
phone outlets in the cottage, but there was no cell phone access within 45 
miles!  I drove all over the island and all the way to Charleston before I 
could get a signal.  Verizon - Can you hear me now?  No!
