Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that stretches from Curry. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Curry) to Point B.
Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Curry. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 62.6147, Longitude: -150.0119 [Map]. In this case, the coordinates for Curry have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
