Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Fabyan) 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 Fabyan. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Fabyan

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Fabyan. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 52.8816, Longitude: -110.9940    
<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 Fabyan 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 331.80 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 332.409 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 319.617 degrees.
