I've been seeing the aircraft out there for years. I too saw the B1 last fall, you sure didn't hear it like you do the fighters. A number of years ago, before my dad passed away, we were up at out mine site and had to look DOWN as on of those jets screamed thru Goler Canyon. I've also found spent 20mm caseing and belt links in Goler. They do alot of 'low level' "terrain tracking" practice out there. {Now you know the reason for the radar sites at Ballarat and Valley Wells, among other reasons.} They are also just off range from the bombing ranges next to Ft. Irwin.
