Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Timberlane. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 30.5213, Longitude: -91.1293     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Timberlane have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<2>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

<3>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 Timberlane to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
