How Far From Sunset Beach to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a village such as Sunset Beach to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Sunset Beach to:

If you could drive a straight line from Sunset Beach to Edmonton, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,769 miles [2,846.9 km] to the East (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 70 days and walking would take 101 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting from Sunset Beach. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Sunset Beach) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Sunset Beach. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Sunset Beach

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sunset Beach. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 54.7418, Longitude: -113.5345     [Map].

- Return to Citation

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Sunset Beach to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 333.846 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 334.881 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 320.961 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer as a placeholder. As we find more information about that community, it will be added to our Gazetteer.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that the community could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.
