How Far From Judah to ...

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

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

  • Edmonton [Map], which is the Provincial Capital of Alberta, lies 234 miles [376.6 km] to the Southeast (SE). If you could drive a straight line from Judah to Edmonton, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take nearly four hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 14 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 10 days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON [Map]) is 1,925 miles [3,098 km] to the East (E). Driving would take three full days, a buggy would take 76 days and walking would take 110 days.

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Judah. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 56.1333, Longitude: -117.3167     [Map].

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