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- Middleburgh) 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 Middleburgh. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from MiddleburghOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Middleburgh.
