Dooby Lane (aka Guru Road) was created by DeWayne "Dooby" Williams (b. 1918, d. 1995). (Note that the 1940 Census has him born in 1919)
The proposed Gerlach Geothermal Development Project would be close to Dooby Lane.
- Pulitzer Prize winning poet Gary Snyder visited Guru Road and wrote: discovered a path / of carved stone inscriptions tucked into the sagebrush / "Stomp out greed." / "The best things in life are not things." / words placed by an old desert sage. Snyder went on to create a book based on Williams' words that included photographs by UNR students and faculty.
