When there is more than one trajectory, the HYSPLIT trajectory plotting program scales the map with respect to the domain of the 1st trajectory to be plotted. If all your trajectories are not on the map, try to "un-zoom", that is use zoom 10% (or less) (-z10). Or manually re-arrange the listing of the endpoints files so that the one covering the most area is first (-itdump2+tdump1 instead of -itdump1+tdump2).
