Travel Times and Distances From 1802 Acacia Lane, Fallbrook, CA

Repeat observations are given in parentheses after the place name. Some of the SR71 paths were before the completion of the SR71 freeway segment, denoted (OT), and hence are ~5 miles and ~5' longer than current times, denoted (CT). Note that the relative times to places cannot be easily deduced from this table of actual observations to the more distant places, since there is up to a ~5' variation in travel times due to delays at the I-15 border station, traffic lights, and general traffic delays. However, the relative mileages should be accurate, allowing approximate calculation of relative travel times.
