Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Red Lodge) 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 Red Lodge. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Red LodgeOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Red Lodge. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.1925, Longitude: -109.2496       In this case, the coordinates for Red Lodge 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 Red Lodge 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 330.193 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 329.861 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 319.756 degrees.
