Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sumter. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.3534, Longitude: -87.1278     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Sumter have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
