Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for North Komelik. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North Komelik

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in North Komelik. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.5084, Longitude: -111.9470    
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>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.
<5>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 North Komelik to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 330.909 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 329.545 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 322.112 degrees.
