BARS::No BARS On the Apache Trail in Arizona

This road sign was on the Apache Trail (AZ Hwy-88) in Arizona. The road sign is an off-by-one BARS.

This road sign was on the Apache Trail and to date no math has been found. The road sign is a fooish off-by-one Pi BARs.

Just for the foo it, GDT decided to treat the two Apache Trail road signs as one sign.

   +--------------------+
   | Tortilla Flat   14 |
   | Canyon Lake     16 |   off-by-one:  14 + 16 = 31 - 1
   | Apache Jct      31 |
   +--------------------+

   +--------------------+
   | Tortilla Flat    6 |
   | Canyon Lake      8 |   off-by-one:  (23 - 1) / avg(6,8) = Pi
   | Apache Jct      23 |
   +--------------------+

   the numbers are:  14  16  31  6  8  12

   the math is:  31 - 23 + sqrt(16) + 8 - 6 = 14

   observe...
      31 - 23 = 8
      sqrt(16) = 4
      8 + 4 = 12
      12 + 8 = 20
      20 - 6 = 14
