Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Mora. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Mora

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mora. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.8775, Longitude: -93.2920     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Mora 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.
<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 Mora to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 318.312 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 316.299 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 310.413 degrees.
