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 drawn from Point A (ie- Asbury Grove) 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 Asbury Grove. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Asbury GroveOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Asbury Grove. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 42.6238, Longitude: -70.8845
