<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Pence) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Pence. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6340, Longitude: -83.4741       In this case, the coordinates for Pence have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
