If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Hoadley.

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