Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bearberry. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.8500, Longitude: -114.9000    
<2>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.
<3>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 Bearberry to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 334.934 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 335.878 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 322.379 degrees.
