    Yes, it is 2600 miles as the crow flies, but the road mileage would need to be measured with a string overlaying the route of any specific road.

    The string distance can then be compared to the map ratio.

    Get a extra useful map. The ratio shouldn't exchange measuring instruments. a million: 4224000 is how the size might desire to be represented. undergo in suggestions it is at as quickly as line distance and would not evaluate topography, roadways etc. it truly is merely 2800 miles via air with non-constrained airspace.

    2,600 Miles

    (800*3)+(800*.25)
