A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- English Harbour East) 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 English Harbour East. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from English Harbour EastOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in English Harbour East. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.6500, Longitude: -54.9333

We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<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.
