<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance starting from Bluelight. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Bluelight) 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 Bluelight. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bluelight

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
