how far between two points as the crow flies?

If you knew me, which you don’t, you’d know I love finding stuff on the internet.
I’m writing a book (big surprise) that takes place in and around Half Moon Bay. I was curious as to the distance from the Half Moon Bay airport to San Francisco International. They looked very close on the map, but I didn’t want driving directions, I wanted to know the air miles between the two airports. What if my character wanted to hire a helicopter and go from one to the other?
Love that Google. Below are two links that will measure distances from one point to the other. The first allows you to add points in between. The second takes longitude and latitude (which you can get from Google earth – download that one.. Its great for “driving” along roads you cant afford to visit.)
FYI Its like a 30 minute drive from SFO to Half Moon Bay…. but only 9 1/2 miles! A very quick flight, a but a winding, semi-dangerous drive!

About 3by3 writing method

The author of 12 books, half of them textbooks, two novels and three self help. has struggled with his challenges of completion, distractions, plotting and writers block. Finally after getting stopped I stopped and analyzed what was going on and spent a lot of introspection, research and reading trying to locate the source of these issues. The result of was the 3by3 writing method - a three step program to start and then continue the process of completing a story all the way to publication.
