Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting at Pine City. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Pine City) 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 Pine City. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Pine City

<2>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Pine City, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

- Return to Citation

<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Pine City to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
