Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Alberton. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.2779, Longitude: -86.1258     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Alberton have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
