I have a piece of software called TUMAUS (www.tumaus.com.au) which can
produce reasonable shaded contour maps and overlay lines between two points
- it can't produce elevation profiles though - Radio Mobile can do that.

I'll make some maps and post them on the wiki in the next couple of days.

I also can't make it to Friday's meeting, and weekends in general are bad
for me, so my participation in this record attempt will be from the
sidelines.  I can offer advice and loan equipment.
