Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Scrabble. 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 Scrabble

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Scrabble. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.4837, Longitude: -77.8325     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Scrabble have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
