Great write up! Life lessons are the most educational ones, and hopefully others will read it and can learn from that. We had gotten stuck there for a night, not too far from where you were, due to someone flipping their Landcruiser and blocking the road for the remainder of the day/night until a tow truck came to his rescue at about 10pm. They found out like you, that they were lucky and actually had cell service. No satellite phone though, so if they didn't, one of their buddies would have had to make the trip down to Chelan for help. Always be prepared!
