Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Troy. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.3679, Longitude: -88.0425     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Troy have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
