Footnotes ...

<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 from Point A (ie- Peaks and Pines Park) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Peaks and Pines Park. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.9708, Longitude: -114.1434       In this case, the coordinates for Peaks and Pines Park have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>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.
<4>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 Peaks and Pines Park to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 334.107 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 334.468 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 322.658 degrees.
