Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Houston. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 61.6301, Longitude: -149.8138     [Map].
