Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Lysite) 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 Lysite. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from LysiteOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lysite. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.2696, Longitude: -107.6898    
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>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.
