U.S. Naval Museum of Armament & Technology

I went up to the U.S. Naval Museum of Armament and Technology at China Lake Thursday with Joy and my Nephew Skyler. One of the few examples where government worked. Instead of paying the traditional cost plus development contract where the Government normally gets ripped off, China Lake performed the development and handed off the data package to a contractor for manufacturer. Other cool missiles included the NOTS anti-satellite missile and the AIM95 AGILE air-to-air missile, and a cruise missile model with a ultra wide bypass fan. Outside they had a early F-18, F-86 drone, A-6, Skyray, and a super tiger, ASROC, and a Poseidon missile.

Ridgecrest is growing, it looked like they were building a new hotel and several new businesses, We stopped at the Walmart before heading back down to Boron via highway 395.

All the off-roaders were playing by Jawbone canyon and between Ridgecrest and Boron.

We stopped at Domingos in Boron. Domingos has the best Mexican food in Antelope Valley.
