Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting at Coyote Wells. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Coyote Wells) to Point B.

- Return to Citation

<2>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.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Coyote Wells to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

- Return to Citation

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 334.167 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 333.525 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 324.314 degrees.
