Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Condor.

This page contains two sections:

How Far From Condor to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers, Almanacs & Directories that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Condor to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Condor to:

  • Edmonton [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 95 miles [152.9 km] to the North Northeast (NNE). If you could drive a straight line from Condor to Edmonton, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take three full days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,803 miles [2,901.6 km] to the East (E). Driving would take most of three days, a buggy would take 71 days and walking would take 103 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,341 miles [10,204.9 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 7,107 miles [11,437.6 km] and it lies to the North Northeast (NNE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 5,195 miles [8,360.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that starts in Condor. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Condor) 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 Condor. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Condor

<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.

- Return to Citation

<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 Condor to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
