<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance that starts in Slate. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Slate) 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 Slate. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Slate

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Slate. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 39.1358, Longitude: -81.4464     [Map].
