History of the Phone Booth now found in Ocotillo Wells, former Truckhaven Area, near the Salton Sea.

The Phone booth was installed between Christmas and new years 2003

 Phone Booth Guest Registry

In 2003 we left a paper guest register in the Ammo Box and people would sign the book having made it to this remote destination in the desert.  By the end of 2004 there were a couple of hundred people that had found and signed the register.  In 2005 the book had become full and we replaced it with a new book.  By 2006 there were so many people signing the book that we could no longer keep the book updated.  The Phone Booth literally receives several thousands of  visitors each year.

But here is the fun modern day twist:
When the Phone booth was installed it was fun because it seemed ridiculous that someone could ever make a phone call from this remote location.
But now with the Cell Phone Technology and the internet, you can stand at the phone booth and make your own phone call and connect to the internet.

Even more fun you can sign the electronic Guest Registry using your phone while standing at the Phone Booth.

So if you're at the phone now, or have recently been there
