Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

Another Long Hauler in action...

This long hauling is just rampant....  Check out this hack.  Usual story. Leaving the airport, using the tunnel, merging on to the 215.

Heading to the 215 north merge...

Merging over to the 15 north -- nice and easy.

Which exit will it be?  I think this is a Tropicana long haul....

Sure looks like a Tropicana long haul...

 Bingo.  Another dupe tourist long hauled over to Tropicana...


  1. From an email I got from a reader:

    "P.S. I was in LV last week and talked to one guy on his first trip who was charged $41 for a airport to Luxor trip!!"

    $41 to the Luxor? Come on now.

  2. 41.00 for what should have been 15.00 is bad for tourism. Of course one wonders if that first-time tourist got rooked on his gambling and his club-hopping as well. Some taxicab companies pressure drivers to longhaul but no one pressures any casino to serve tiny little watered down drinks or pressures a strip club or pressures a casino to allow 6:5 blackjack.
    It seems that nothing happens to these longhauling cabbies though.
