BARS::2 Miles From Bald Mountain Lookout, Kern Plateau, California

This road sign is on J-41 in the Sequoia National Forest in California.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   |         22S05         |
   | Blackrock Station   6 |
   | Kennedy MDWS       19 |  {MDWS is Meadows}
   | Bald Mountain LO    2 |  {LO is Lookout}
   | Mahogany Creek Trail  |
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  22  5  6  19  2

   the math is:  22 - 19 + 5 - 6 = 2

   rsPhiEval:  ((22 - 19)! / 6 + sqrt(5)) / 2 = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  22 / ((6 + 19) / 5 + 2) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)

   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(sqrt(22 - 6)) + sqrt(19 - 2 * 5) = 5
   * There are five numbers in this road sign.

   rsStateEval:  5 * 6 + 22 - 19 - 2 = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   rs37Eval:  19 + 22 - (5 * 2) + 6 = 37
   * There was no official rs37Eval when this BARS was created;
   * however, MathBabbler was considering adding it.
   * Why add rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rs42Eval:  22 * 2 - sqrt((5 + 19) / 6) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  19 * 2 + 22 - 6! / 5! = 55-1
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   ... no equations were looked for using the BARSlib functions ...
