.....Someone correct me if I'm too far off base....
No, you on target. After seeing a difference of 15 miles, I thought I'd better check to find out why I seemed so far off. Ran into an answer much like yours, which of course means it depends where you are.
On average 1 nautical mile=1.15 miles=1852 meters=6067 feet.
On average that makes 69 miles per degree.
