Big City Life

This is Sahara Avenue looking east with the Stratosphere Tower looming large a few miles away. Sunshine and 81 degrees are the forecasts for today, not bad! Have you heard about the body in a barrel, found in Lake Mead recently due to the low water level? So sad. It has apparently been there since the late 70s or early 80s. No crime can be covered up forever, can it… Is the killer still alive today? Maybe fearful because of the discovery?

  1. I went on one of those thrill rides. I think it was called “Exterminator”! The one where you are seated and it spins over the edge. It was awesome and the view from up top is amazing!
    Fact:. The Strat is the tallest building in Las Vegas!

    • So horrid! And I suppose there is a chance that family members are still alive today which would be so terrible for them to find out. 😪

      • At this point, it would be a relief as well, I would imagine. I worked for a man who’s father was an accountant who disappeared in the dirty thirties. It was assumed by people he worked for but they never found the body. It was so sad for Jack and his mother. 😢

    • Well, there are at least two elevator shafts but the top hosts a big bar and restaurant as well as some thrill rides. One hangs you over the edge while seated, oh hell no! Another ride has multiple seats that takes you straight up the TV tower atop the structure then drops you down quickly. Nooo thanks! There is also an option to strap on a harness and jump off of the tower while attached to a rope. Nope! 😂 The structure sways so going up there is very scary for me. 💀

        • I have to agree, Anneli. The structure is the highest in the city and also the most dangerous as far as I am concerned. The structure certainly has a finite life span, so, when will it collapse? God knows, but I would never purchase property within it’s fall radius!

Your pleasant comment is welcome!
