Don't worry. Why in gods name are YOU doing it. Is
this what lawyers do in their spare time these days?

I don't think it's too bad from FSE to EC(it's only one block), but beyond(south east of) EC it gets shady.

I've walked everywhere in downtown and never had problems. Don't look like a tourist, problem solved.

Excellent movie, good reference IBYA :)

Teddy, I feel like there's a story here. Booking a flight to Tijuana cheaper than into SD, so you did that to save money on your Rincon trip?

Honestly I've never felt unsafe at any time of the day or night sticking to the main strip and the main Downtown casinos (from MSS to ElCo, staying under the FSE canopy whenever possible).

I know we have some bus riders here. I think it might have been terapined that did a 18 min video of the strip. What is your opinion on the RTC routes and have you ever had an issue while riding the bus?

One time about four years ago, it was about 1:00 in the morning, I'm staying at Casino Royale. Went for a walk all the way down to check out Aria, and back of course. I never used to hear many stories about being mugged, but in the last several months have--along with a lot of articles about it. I'm going to have to be more careful. I once had 8K in my pocket as I walked from Binion's to the Gold Spike. I should have Mace in my hand, or a harpoon.

Only park in the parking structure that is connected to the casino by elevators. It is manned by security upon entry. They have another parking structure that's across the street with no security. I would avoid that one.
