If you drive up the 15 near Corona, you'll see enough activity that makes you think they could find a buck or two for an I-5 bike path. Pedestrians are relegated to the 5 too!

The land on those bases belongs to the state, it's not federal land - if they give up the base it reverts back to California, but I hear what you're saying about "cake"...

This suggests otherwise.

They could probably fix the federal deficit if they developed Pendleton.

probably. can you imagine? a current comparison (but about as close as we can ever get) is the partial development of tejon ranch up the "grapevine" part of the 5 fwy.
there are some pretty roads in that triangle between santa clarita, lancaster/palmdale and the frazier park/gorman area. ride those roads while you can because they'll be deathtraps
and unridable within a few years.

No offense, I'm a bit of a nitpicker, ask my wife. Thinking of getting a copy of The Nitpicker's Guide.

If you were truly a nit picker your coordinates would be more accurate... I hope you winter some place else

Nope, they're accurate... enough. I actually like winter.. until about January 31 that is.

I hate to say so, but the value of Pendleton, even if they could sell every bit of it for $5 million/acre, would be a fart in a thunderstorm in comparison to the federal deficit, which is itself only about 10% of the fiscal gap.
