How Far From Two Mile to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Two Mile to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<1> community of Two Mile once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Two Mile to:

If you could drive a straight line from Two Mile to Little Rock, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take about two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 7 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 5 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>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 Two Mile, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting from Two Mile. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Two Mile) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Two Mile. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.5112, Longitude: -94.3477     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Two Mile have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>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

<4>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 Two Mile to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
