  1. 1 Troy from Las Vegas

    Sure the Neon Boneyard sounds like fun and the pictures they have are nice trying to get you to go there but what no one tells you is, well remember when you two were talking about is there a non safe part of town? This is one of those areas. The Boneyard is on the corner of E McWilliams and Encanto. North of Las Vegas Blvd and Bonanza. If you have Google Earth you can see the slipper at 36 10 38.71 N 115 08 03.85 W and the other lot houses the pirate from TI at 36 10 35.99 N 115 08 06.55 W It is less than 1 mile north of Fremont.

  2. 2 Chris in Dallas

    Hey Troy-

    The surrounding areas that the boneyard sits in certainly do look rather “undesirable”, but since all tours are during the day, I never felt any danger at all.
    Of course, I was so pumped to finally be taking this tour, I also didn’t even notice the 117 degree weather. Lots of people dropped out due to the heat.

    Troy> Thanks for giving Michele a new set of numbers to play roulette with.

  4. 4 Rico & Audrey

    Put it all on 115!

  5. 5 Scott J.

    Tim,

    You’re a better man than me, making it through the entire Real World Vegas reunion. I lasted 15 minutes of the first show.

  6. 6 Nick

    I’m still curious why we don’t see a review of “Sin City Diaries” from, uh, Skinemax.

  7. 7 David & Dina

    Tim,

    I have to agree with Scott J., I only tried to watch the Real World LV for the first 3 shows and then I had to give up. Only watched it for the shots of Vegas. Definately Train-wreck TV.

    Here’s an article, via boingboing:

    Actually, several smaller articles about slot machines…

    Well, now that Real World Las Vegas Reunited is history, Tim might want to review another “Vegas based” reality show. HGTV will premiere the second season of Design Star 2007 on Sunday, July 22, 10PM ET (in Vegas).

    OK, contain your excitement, LOL. I think that’s the Planet Ho casino in the “sneak peek” online videos. Can’t be any worse than that MTV train wreck.
