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 drawn from Point A (ie- Sunbright) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Sunbright. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Sunbright

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sunbright. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.2433, Longitude: -84.6807       In this case, the coordinates for Sunbright have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<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.
<3>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 Sunbright to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<4>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 312.509 degrees.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 308.324 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 308.776 degrees.
