How Far From Dahl 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 Dahl to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Juneau [Map], which is the State Capital of Alaska, lies 1,086 miles [1,747.7 km] to the East Southeast (ESE). If you could drive a straight line from Dahl to Juneau, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take over two days to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 62 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 43 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 3,747 miles [6,030.2 km] to the East Northeast (ENE). Driving would take 8 days, a buggy would take 147 days and walking would take 213 days.

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Dahl. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 65.3647, Longitude: -164.7136     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Dahl have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

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

- Return to Citation

<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 17.047 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 22.75 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 357.792 degrees.
