    Default How far from Homer or Anchor point are the Barrens?

    I have been trying to figure it out on Google Earth but I am computer challenged in a big way! How far is it from Homer or Anchor Point to the Barren Islands? Thanks for the help!

    60 miles is spot on, less of a trip than to Gore for sure. now the bad part is finding water good enough to go down there, this time of year, but they do happen.

    Since you said you were a bit challenged on Goggle earth here is a short how to to figure future trips.

    1. above the picture on the tool bar there is a ruler- click on it
    2. a box will show up and click on the path and you can select if you want mile of KM

    3. the astric will turn into a open box... move that to the location where you want to start and click on that.
    4. move to the next location and click that.... will start the line of site line, move again and click will continue your path and compute the distance.

    5. move to the next location and so forth until you are at destination. You can save as a over lay if you choose.


    I hope this helps for the future
