Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Tuttle. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.0337, Longitude: -93.9724     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Tuttle 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.

- Return to Citation

<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 Tuttle to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 318.403 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 315.105 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 312.921 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<7>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Tuttle, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
