Ascent Trip ReportFrom the international terminal at ATL I exited and followed MARTA signs to get the shuttle bus (15 mins) to the domestic terminal then Skytrain (free of charge) to first station (GICC), elevator to ground floor then followed GPS pointer uphill 150yds, past Marriott hotel to the junction with the main street. Highest point is in landscaped area at SE end of illuminated GICC sign xxxx. Forgot to look for the survey marker.
Back same way. I was away from the international terminal about an hour. This will be my weirdest GPS track to date...
Thanks to James Barlow for the suggestion! En route back to UK after a week in Mexico with James, Laura and Duane bagging the three Baja peninsula ultras. Doubtful if I'll get any further with the GA list.
