Halsteads Blackjack Inn – Nevada

There’s something about Nevada that I love.   Its mostly nothing but a 2 lane, straight ass highway through most of it, with a few little surprises along the way.   To me, its a great road trip.   There something strong about the desert that I love.   Whether you’re a lizard, a cow or a human being – You have to adapt and be tough if you live out here.    I likey.

A few road candy Icons along the way — The Stage stop Bar and Cafe.    From the looks of it, its pretty much closed down.   It’s out in the middle of nowhere, and if you have stories I’d love to hear em:

One more place was the club 50 in McGill Nevada.    It looks like it hasn’t had a guest in a while.

We Stayed the night at the Hotel Nevada in Ely.   The missus and I gambled a bit, had a few drinks and enjoyed the night.    We Stayed in the Tennessee Ernie Ford Room.   Heh, the Lusty Land….

They had an Autographed Easy Rider Poster in the Lobby.   You can tell this is a classy joint.    

We woke up in the AM and headed out into the most empty road you’d ever want to know.  I swear in 180 miles, we passed 2 cars.

The Halstead BlackJack Inn:   I wished I knew the story of this place.    I’ve heard from a few friends that it was open as late as 20 years ago, but it doesn’t look like it to me.   This is a pretty old building, and from the siding it looks like it was built in the 40s.    If anyone knows a story or two here, I’d love to hear it.  The last time I was here was 2008, and its changed a little.  Please post below — There’s some ghosts here, and I’d love to know a thing about this remote place.
