One of the first things I do when I get a closing assignment is find out where the borrowers are located.  I thought it was unusual that the trip would take me more than an hour and a half, according to Mapquest. 

Just where in Calhan is this?  Where in Colorado is this?  It was when I looked at the map view that I saw that it was in Elbert county.  Is this some kind of mistake?  Is that really Calhan?

After locating the borrowers on the map, I called them to confirm the appointment.

Sure enough, they are in Elbert county.
