With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<1> community of Arctic Red River once stood, the straight-line distance<2> beginning in Arctic Red River and extending to:

|<1>||We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Arctic Red River, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.|
|<2>||Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Arctic Red River) to Point B.|
Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Arctic Red River. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 67.4333, Longitude: -133.7500
|<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 Arctic Red River to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.|
