You might be better off with WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 even though the
WIDE1-1,WIDE3-2 would theoretically give you the same three hops.
Some digis will trap "long" paths like WIDE3-N - hi! - giving you just one
more hop instead of the expected two, whereas they will let the two hop
WIDE2-2 go through with two hops.
