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 drawn from Point A (ie- Leon) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Leon. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.5577, Longitude: -86.3927     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Leon have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
