Footnotes ...

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

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Opal. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.3868, Longitude: -80.7662     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Opal have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
