<2>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.

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.
