[aprssig] Weather station path?

I have a newly assembled K0RX weather station, which is a stand alone 
station. It generates the packet tones and sends them to an 
attenuator so they can be fed directly into a transmitter. I am 
running QRP, so hopefully it won't cause to much QRM.

I've tested it, it talks to the RS232 port just fine, so the 
barometric pressure calibration is complete. It needs only to be 
interfaced to a 2 meter HT through the external microphone connector.

It will transmit on 144.39 Mhz.

But, I need to know what path to program in. I know it's been 
discussed here, but because I'm new, I'm not quite sure whether the 
advice I got from a local I found on findu.com is correct.

  I was told to use an unproto path of RELAY, WIDE2-2.

I'd like it to be digipeated locally, and to go through enough digi's 
so that it makes the nearest internet gateway (wherever that is). I 
do find other locals making the interent gateway, but they use some 
very off paths, none of which are the same. And, I'm not quite sure 
what's right and what isn't.

I think the biggest issue I can remember from previous discussions 
here is that the RELAY path should not be used at all.

Can someone who has more experience suggest what path I should be 
using please (Central Maine, USA).

Thanks,

Art
