Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or 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- Roy-Winifred Junction) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Roy-Winifred Junction. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.0889, Longitude: -109.4346       In this case, the coordinates for Roy-Winifred Junction have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).

<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>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.
