Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Slocomb. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.1102, Longitude: -85.5953     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Slocomb have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
