Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that starts in Bremen. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bremen) 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 Bremen. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bremen

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bremen. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 33.9945, Longitude: -86.9700     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Bremen 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.

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