Travels with the Original Easyrider®
2018 Edition

My 71st (ugh) b'day road trip of a lifetime
To see aliens, holes in the ground, waterfalls
A Prius on it's roof, a druged out broad getting arrested
And a pissed off Park Ranger giving a well deserved ticket to some

Not to mention a great train ride!

We were in Nevada in 2016 and 2018.

We were in Denio, Nevada in 2016 and Denio Junction, Nevada in 2018.

Adel is an unincorporated community in southeastern Lake County, in the U.S.
state of Oregon. The community is in an arid, sparsely populated part of
the state, along Oregon Route 140, about 30 miles east of Lakeview. The
Warner Valley surrounding Adel contains many marshes and shallow lakes,
most of them intermittent.

Frequented by Native Americans for many thousands of years, the valley
became a region of sheep grazing and cattle ranching by the late 19th
century. Adel's infrastructure includes a combined store/restaurant/bar,
a post office (serving Zip Code 97620), an elementary school, and a
church. Hot springs and related geological features have made one of the
nearby ranches a potential site for a geothermal power station.

People have lived in the Warner Valley for more than 10,000 years. Evidence
of Native American occupation includes petroglyphs, hunting blinds, flakes
from obsidian tools, and other material artifacts. By historic times, the
Kidütökadö band of Northern Paiute frequented the valley and the uplands
of Hart Mountain, the fault block ridge to the east.

The Euro-American settler community of Adel developed in the late 19th
century around sheep grazing and small cattle ranches. Catholics from
Ireland found work here as shepherds; their surnames and their churches
are part of the regional heritage. A stagecoach line connected early Adel
to Fort Bidwell in northern California and offered transportation three
times a week. J. J. Monroe owned the Adel store.

The Adel post office was established in 1896 and was either named for a
former sweetheart of the owner of the land on which it was established or
for a local cow, Leda, but with the spelling reversed. Mail service at
that time was limited to three days a week.

Crump Lake, immediately north of Adel, is named after Thomas Crump
(1854–1939), who settled here in the 1890s. The lake, toward the southern
end of a north–south chain of marshes and mainly intermittent lakes,
covers about 8,500 acres with a shoreline of about 70 miles.

In 1959, two days after the Nevada Thermal Power Company drilled a well
on the Crump family property, a continuous geyser of steam and hot water
began shooting 150 feet into the air. However, during the 1960s the Crump
Geyser became plugged with rocks, though it continued to emit steam. In
the 21st century, the site's geoelectric potential makes it a candidate
for a power station. The state's first geothermal plant began operation
at the Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls in 2010. Another
went online near Vale in 2012 and another, near Paisley, in 2014..
