    Of course with a good GPS it's easy to fix the actual height of the top of a mountain and compare it to when you turned it on at the base to get a "true" measure of height. 

    For the math teachers out there-- it'd be a great Pythagorean Theorem problem to figure out the mean length of the hypotenuse using "a" as the distance from the base to the top of the mountain level, and "b" being that point straight up to the top of the mountain. Then, compare that to a USGS map...
