This page contains three sections:

How Far From Sine to ...

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

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance<1> beginning in Sine to:

  • Montesano [Map], which is the Seat of Grays Harbor County, lies 16 miles [25.7 km] to the West Southwest. If you could walk a straight line from Sine to Montesano, with an average speed<2> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take most of a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take five to six hours.
  • Olympia [Map], which is the State Capital of Washington, lies 17 miles [27.4 km] to the East (E). The buggy would take five to six hours and walking would take most of a day.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting from Sine. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Sine) to Point B.

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Sine. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 47.0319, Longitude: -123.2640     [Map].

<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.

- Return to Citation

<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 Sine 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 341.62 degrees.

<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 343.268 degrees.
