        I think they built a prison in that neighborhood. I go that way on occasion when I 10 to Phoenix and LA traffic are feeling boring :lol:. Brats and granbrats are in Phx. Some of those bustling communities out there are not so bustling anymore. Needles looks like a ghost town, as does half of Barstow.

          Bakersfield and it's suburbs have over 1M peoples now. Army made Ft Irwin their national training post for desert warfare, but Santa Fe RR pulled their diesel shops out of Barstow and the decline began. CalTrans and the Feds did improve the roadways in the Barstow area to some extent.

            I remember sonic booms in the early mid 60s. They were equivalent to a clap of lightning hitting close to your space. Sometimes more distant. Like lightning. Although the sound is different. Intensity I believe is simular

            Ha, been there! We heard booms occasionally when camping north of Victorville off 395. Didnt need a permit jack in 1975 like you do now. Just truck on down a random dirt road and circle the wagons where it looks gold. Beautiful in the spring and fall, hot or cold any other time.
