"Yup. I've read that (the) Ukraine has a topsoil depth of 150 feet. It blew in there over the eons from other places."

Such wind-deposited soils are called loess. There are sites in my home county in Oklahoma where the topsoil is 30-40' deep.

That's good, huh? Good farming soil.

NOW you've got my attention !

I might add, all the mainstream "out-of-Africa-Cause it's Politically Correct" folks are probably having coronaries.

My relatives used to take us to Calico when we were bored with the other entertainments of Barstow and Hinckley.

My mother used to make us walk very quietly on the board sidewalk past a house with lace curtains. She told us the school marm from when Calico was still a mining town lived there. She was very old, and my mother didn't want a bunch of noisy kids ruining her repose. I always tried to surreptitiously peer through the window as we walked by, but I never saw her.

Calico, the ghost town, was moved to Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA in the 1950's. Remnants of the old site can still be seen off I-15 north of Barstow and the marine depot at Yermo.

Entertainments of Barstow and Hinkley?? I grew up in Barstow and probably knew some of your relatives. My first paying job when I was still in high school was at Calico where I was a guide for the haunted house. At that time (1963) Calico had been taken over by Knotts Berry Farm. I can remember Calico before the Knotts takeover.

bruinbirdman, Knott's Berry Farm took over Calico in the late 50's and rebuilt it where it was as a tourist attraction. Although Knott's Berry's did build a ghost town in Buena Park in their amusment park the original Calico Ghost town, although extensively rebuilt, still exists just outside of Yermo.

Oh yes, in Barstow a great thing to do was to walk down to the railroad tracks and flatten pennies. Then there was a little cafe downtown that made great chocolate malteds. If you didn't want to do that you could hang out at the drive-in burger placeand check out the various hot rods and drag racers coming in, or go swimming at the public pool. If it was really really hot you might go to the afternoon matinee at the movie theater, just to cool down.

I spent a lot of time in the early 70s all around the Calico area. While we were stationed at MCSC Barstow my now wife and I used to go out there to various caves and areas to get away from the barracks and party. There was certainly little else in Barstow to do other than go to the Goldstone bar. After reading this I wish I had spent more time digging around up there and less swilling cheap wine and beer, might have made a great discovery.
