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 drawn from Point A (ie- Rig) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Rig. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.0390, Longitude: -79.0456       In this case, the coordinates for Rig have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
