Yes, and actually, that is why the original idea of the
APRS posts I sort of abandoned and next toyed
with the idea of just a PC (laptop) chained to the
counter at the local trail shops, and ranger stations
and other "manned" places -near- the trail where
hikers may drop down to for supplies and or contact
with the outside world. 

Besides, there would be power and light and shelter
there, so all I really would need to come up with
was the old $25 laptop and a radio...

But its just one of those ideas I wont have time for...
anyway... bummer.  would be lots of fun to watch 
the hikers...
