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- Spencer) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spencer. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.6199, Longitude: -80.0073       In this case, the coordinates for Spencer have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
