I suggest you sponsor the stairwell in the Stratosphere. Then you can clean it yearly when you make the climb.



Better yet, adopt a WoV member and pay their way to WoVCon. Have said member wear a WoV T-shirt the entire time they spend in Vegas.

Our group did this 20 years ago in Oregon. We had to pledge $30/year and 4 cleanup dates/year for a 2 mile stretch of I-5, both ways. We had 200 active members, so it didn't take long, and it was a fun outing, mostly. There was this garbage-picking-up thing that got in the way. Plus we had to buy a bunch of orange vests to be legal doing it. So I say, yes, go for it, especially since they're willing to find you a crew.

Pick a piece of highway with good data reception so passengers can look you up on smartphones tablets
Gambling is a metaphor for life. Hang around long enough and it's all gone.

That's extremely good advice, nc.

So you had to wear prisoner vests and clean up trash off the roadside. And you paid someone to let you do this. And it was fun?

I don't know much about Oregon, but I have to think there's better ways to spend a group outing

This would make me even happier to be a member of the Wizard of Vegas site.

Beside acts of charity are a double blessing - to those you help and to yourself.

Could be a lot of fun, actually. As long as a young lady high on MJ doesn't take a turn thru your ranks....

I like this advice as well, however, you may not get much leeway on placement...

But it is important to consider if they ask you: Where do you want the sign on your section of the highway?

I think it's a great idea. There are radio stations out there that cater just to the I-15 traffic. It's the only stretch of interstate I've ever seen with bumper to bumper traffic out in the middle of nowhere. I once caught a ride on that stretch by a tow truck driver. He told me that the north bound traffic is in a good mood and can't wait to get to Vegas. The southbound traffic is all drunk and pissed off.

The clean up crews, at least on the Nevada side were prisoners. I remember the case of a girl in a van who ran off the road and killed like a half dozen prisoners. She had been smoking marijuana just a few hours before. I don't know what the outcome of her case was.

She got a porn contract ;) She was already a stripper. I think i remember her THC levels were insignificant and it was more likely she fell asleep. (no doubt from to much partying) However, I remember thinking, they railroaded her and used her as an example.


prisoners? In that case, she was just trying to save us taxpayer money.

Seriously tho, she got bad press and was a evil person because it was TEEN's that got killed and it was a pot smoking stripper who did it.

I just googled it. Her name was Jessica Williams. 5 were killed, two injured. They were juvenile offenders doing community service picking up trash.
