Introduction ...

Below is our collection of tidbits, odds 'n ends for Weyerhaeuser.

This page contains two sections:

How Far From Weyerhaeuser 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 village such as Weyerhaeuser to various places of note, such as the White House.

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

  • Ladysmith [Map], which is the Seat of Rusk County, lies 15 miles [24.1 km] to the East. If you could walk a straight line from Weyerhaeuser to Ladysmith, 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 four to five hours.
  • Madison [Map], which is the State Capital of Wisconsin, lies 190 miles [305.8 km] to the South Southeast (SSE). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take a little over three hours, a buggy would take 8 days and walking would take 11 days.
  • The White House (Washington, DC [Map]) is 860 miles [1,384 km] to the East Southeast (ESE). Driving would take most of two days, a buggy would take 34 days and walking would take 49 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock [Map]) is 6,139 miles [9,879.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
  • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba [Map]) is 6,892 miles [11,091.6 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to Saint Peter's Basilica (The Vatican [Map]) is 4,797 miles [7,720 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Weyerhaeuser. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 45.4236, Longitude: -91.4085     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Weyerhaeuser 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.

- 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 Weyerhaeuser to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
