<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- Old Fort Bay) 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 Old Fort Bay. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Old Fort BayOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Old Fort Bay. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 51.4167, Longitude: -57.8167    
<2>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. 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.
<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 Old Fort Bay to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
