Footnotes ...

<1>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or gone without an obvious trace.

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Brainard) 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 Brainard. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Brainard
