Since San Diego is not a major station for Amtrak, they may not have boxes though.

I've already learned a lot just this last week. What I would really like to do is to go down the pacific coast line, and I will probably have to start from Minnesota, to save money on travel to one coast or the other.
I too have paid the additional money for the rescues service, which I had the unfortunate pleasure of using this past summer on my Atlantic Odyssey trip.
What I and my family use now is the "Beer-View" mirror which is made with a spoke or similar wire epoxied into a metal bottle cap with a mirror embedded down in it. It may take 20 minutes to get it adjusted right to fit your glasses and get the angle right; but once it is adjusted, you won't have to adjust it again unless you get new glasses, sit on it, or something like that.
No one offers complete coverage everywhere, and so you are best to ignore the commercials. Every region has local cell phone operators that give equal or better coverage than the national mega-telecom companies.
My highest recommendation is this: bring the cell phone you already have, as it will work for 911 calls anywhere. For all non-emergency calls, just ask a local. 99 times out of 100, people have been helpful and let me use their phone.
