BARS::5 Miles From Cima in California

This road sign is in the Mojave National Preserve in California.

The road sign says...

   +----------------------+
   | <- Kelso Depot    14 |
   | <- Kelso Dunes    22 |
   | Cima            5 -> |
   +----------------------+
   the numbers are:  14  22  5

   rsStateEval:  14 + 22 - 5 = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   rs42Eval:  summation(14, 22) - 5! = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(14, 22) = 14+15+16+17+18+19+20+21+22 = 162

   off-by-one math:  sqrt(14 + 22) = 5+1
