Wonderful!  That's our round trip from Florida to Springer Mountain GA 
and back again for the Appalachian Golden Packet attempt 
(http://www.aprs.org/hamtrails/springer.html and 
http://www.aprs.org/at-golden-packet.html).

Jul 24 - Florida to GA
Jul 25 - Quick trip to scope out the mountain
Jul 26 - Actual event trip up the mountain
Late Jul 26-Early 27 - Made dash back home for work on Monday AM.

Thanks for the graph!  The gaps are caused by the lack of cellular 
coverage at various points of the mountain, so I just turned off the 
beaconing on my cellphone's APRSISCE client.
