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- Aneta) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Aneta. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from AnetaOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Aneta. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.6789, Longitude: -97.9893       In this case, the coordinates for Aneta 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'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.
<5>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 Aneta to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
