As far as cell service goes we have an Alltel tower in town. The folks that have Verizon need to change their system to Automatic A and you will have access here in Silverton. I have a Tracfone and have no problem with getting service out and about.
Course is looking great! Marking is proceeding. Hiking permits are available at the Visitor Center as you come into Town and I just dropped off a packet at Charlie's house.
