<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 drawn from Point A (ie- Rodgers Hill) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rodgers Hill.
