For a little diversion some time, the old mining towns of Red Mountain, Randsburg and Johannesburg are maybe 20 miles or so to the north on 395. A few little places trying to eke out a living selling dodads but fun to nose around. I do believe there is off roading at Red Mountain too. Things have changed so, when I was there the only things off limits were mining claims defended by cranky gun toting recluses.
And further up the road at Ridgecrest they run guided tours (you'd drive your own Jeep) out onto the Naval bombing range to view some petroglyphs in a nice little canyon.
The real capper would be a trip through Boron, my old haunt. A ghost town in the making. The film Erin Brokovich was shot there since Boron had just the right "run down" look. There is a quaint little museum there though. It's across from the earth mover on display that appears to be about 3 stories tall. One of the small ones. Of course that's 20 mule team borax country and the borax pit is a sight to behold with a really very nice little tour center. Domingo's mexican is supposed to actually be a good eatery.
There are tons of places to off road over there. The Death Valley, Saline Valley area is a place I never really got to explore much in the back country. It is on my list.
Forgive my rambling, I'm just trying to scare up some commerce for my buddies still in Boron.
