Have a great trip.

1.  Good point.  Daniels first post and my second do give a rather implausible answer - same method despite the names.  I don't feel like looking into that right now but I may tomorrow.
My best fit line seems more reasonable.

2.  Thanks for clarifying.  We want the average weight for 30 days, not 30*24 hours.
