Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance beginning in Damascus. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Damascus) 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 Damascus. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Damascus

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Damascus. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 31.2990, Longitude: -84.7170     [Map].
