Footnotes ...

<1>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Horse Mesa), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
<2>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 drawn from Point A (ie- Horse Mesa) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Horse Mesa. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.7050, Longitude: -109.0465       In this case, the coordinates for Horse Mesa have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
