Extra Credit opportunity:

A driver is headed north on a long, straight highway and sees this sign:

Nearville 150 miles

Farville 160 miles

Then, surprisingly, an hour later she sees this apparently inconsistent sign on the same highway:

Nearville 100 miles

Farville 109 miles

How can this be possible? [The signs are correct; the terrain is flat; neither town moves its boundary; there is no change in route.]
