Hi -
I wouldn't read into that too much...We were hitting the Spot every 15 minutes on the way down, and in hindsight, it only showed some of those "hits"....

he probably just does not want me doing any more shots. His sister and I were going to do a shot for every spot they dropped, of course that was when they were going to come back yesterday...

As of the last spot point I calculate their average speed so far as approx. 51 mph (234 miles / 4.6 hours) using http://www.abe.msstate.edu/~fto/calc.../converte.html
