<5>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 from Point A (ie- Russell) 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 Russell. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from RussellOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Russell.
