   |          Facilty Distance Guide        |
   | <- McDowell Competitive Track          |
   | -> 30 - Acre Lot                       |
   | McDowell Visitor Center - 2.5 miles    |
   | McDowell Family Campground - 2.6 miles |
   | Trailhead Staging Area - 2.8 miles     |
   | Ironwood Picnic Loop - 4.5 miles       |
   | Palo Verde Picnic Loop - 5.0 miles     |
   | Youth Group Area - 5.5 miles           |

   the numbers are:  30  2.5  2.6  2.8  4.5  5  5.5

   the math is:  2.5 * (4.5 + 5.5) * (2.8 - 2.6) = sqrt(30 - 5)

   rs42Eval:  sqrt((2.5 + 2.6 + 2.8) * (4.5 + 5.5) - 30)! / 5! = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs42Eval:  30 + floor(2.5) + floor(2.6) + floor(2.8) - 
              floor(4.5) + 5 + floor(5.5) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  (2.5 + 2.6 + 2.8) * (4.5 + 5.5) - 30 + 5 = 55-1
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this entrance sign.
   * Note: RoadHacker found this sign one day after his 55th birthday.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  30 + ceil(2.5) + ceil(2.6) + ceil(2.8) + 
                          ceil(4.5) + 5 + ceil(5.5) = 55-1
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this entrance sign.

   ...more, more, more...
