Take the unicycle. Great time to make a video.



I'm thinking about it. There is still a little too much traffic for me to feel comfortable with it.

That's what sidewalks are for. There are very few people on the sidewalks.

Hmmm. I generally disapprove of that, but I think in Vegas I could file riding a unicycle anywhere under free entertainment.

Axel, thanks for taking the time to post your tour of the strip. It sounds like cars are still in force (though maybe only half as many) on the strip but people walking are almost non existent. Homeless people begging for money must be getting desperate.

Yesterday around 3 p.m. , I was driving home from out near the M. I decided to take a detour home and drive the strip all the way to Sahara. I wanted to video it, but was driving solo. I made sure to pay attention closely. I didn't think anybody would be all that interested enough to start a new thread about it, but perhaps they are.



I made the same trip shortly after you in the opposite direction. Similar observations. The amount of cars felt like a typical slow time, especially on the north side, where they still have construction and lanes closed. Weird to see zero taxis or moving billboards. Lot of police cars sitting on the side with their lights on; they're probably like the rest of us, with nothing to do. Wanted to get out and walk, but no good place to park or pee. Oyo looked to be open, with a lot of cars in their parking lot. Possibly offering take-out from their restaurants, or just the only place to park on that end. Parked there and walked to Las Vegas Blvd and up past NY-NY, and that was it.
