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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Fairfield. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.2518, Longitude: -86.6455     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Fairfield have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
