Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Treat. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.6126, Longitude: -93.1613     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Treat have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Treat to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
