Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Congo. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.3109, Longitude: -85.6508     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Congo have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
