How Far From Regal to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Regal to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Regal and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Ellensburg, which is the Seat of Kittitas County and lies just to the West.
    • Olympia, which is the State Capital of Washington, lies 114 miles [183.5 km]<1> to the west (W). If you could drive a straight line from Regal to Olympia, with an average speed<5>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take about two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 7 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 5 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Regal) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Regal. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.9901, Longitude: -120.4670       In this case, the coordinates for Regal have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<5>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.
<6>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 Regal to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 339.302 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 340.572 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 326.587 degrees.
