How Far From Spadra to ...

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Spadra to:

If you could drive a straight line from Spadra to Little Rock, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 5 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
