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.

Technically the freeway is also on the base, I wish they would just pave a bike path and put up a barrier for the entire 17 mile potential detour.

Its The Marine Corps, They arent going to pave nothing for Civilian bike riders . Just be glad they even allow you to ride thru the Base.

I've got a "Real ID" CA driver's licence. Will this get me onto the base at the Las Pulgas gate?

^no. you still need to hit the visitor center located by the southern entrance just off the 5 freeway near oceanside. i rummaged around the site looking for the definitive requirements for their free base id. your real ca id would be one component but couldnít find the listing of acceptable forms/id necessary to get the base id. perhaps itís in there somewhere. not the easiest task when itís pre-coffee and on my phone. i did see a phone number to contact with questions. https://www.pendleton.marines.mil/Base-Access/

i went close to the end of the day (2:30pm). this was my third pass. first-time took about 15-20 mins if i remember correctly. second time, literally five mins. the paperwork more extensive this time
along with a specific bicyclist addendum page to be signed and dated that wasn't part of the pass before. all that plus covid protocols...averages out to thirty mins per yearly visit for a free pass.
i can live with it. brought the old/expired pass, current new california dl (had to renew a few months ago when the offices were closed so didn't/couldn't get the real id version) and the unexpired us
passport which, amazingly, still works in the usa but apparently few other places these daze.

was talking to a guy today picking his up (first-time) and he was excited to be doing a ride from newport beach to san diego tomorrow (tuesday). gave him some directional/route pointers/what
to expect, yadda yadda. killed five mins and was nice to chat with a fellow cyclist.

yeah...that "ever been convicted of a felony?" yes/no question took me longer to answer than it should have. started to question myself...was that a felony? don't remember. let's put "no."
