Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- South Plains) 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 South Plains. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from South Plains

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in South Plains. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.2258, Longitude: -101.3104     [Map].
