A "klick" is slang for a kilometer, (kilometre) or 1000 meters. It's equivalent to about .6213 miles or approximately 3,280.464 feet.. A "clique" is a group of people with a common status or interest.
* In Vietnam, US soldiers would sometimes confusingly refer to a distance in kilometers ("klicks") as the distance in standard miles. But most of South Vietnam used the kilometer measurements from its days as a French colony.
