Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting in Homer. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Homer) 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 Homer. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Homer

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Homer. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 59.6465, Longitude: -151.5371     [Map].
