Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Damascus. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.3204, Longitude: -86.0044     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Damascus have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
