Las Vegas Sewer Dwellers

The SunLovebirds Steven and Kathryn share a well-organized home in bustling Las Vegas. They have a neat, if compact kitchen, a furnished living area, and a bedroom complete with double bed, wardrobe and bookshelf featuring a wide selection including a Frank Sinatra biography and Spanish phrase book.

And they make their money in some of the biggest casinos in the world. But their life is far from the ordinary.

Because, along with hundreds of others, the couple are part of a secret community living in the dark and dirty underground flood tunnels below the famous strip.

Rather than working in the bars or kitchens they “credit hustle”, prowling the casinos searching the fruit machines for money or credits left by drunken gamblers.

Despite the risks from disease, highly venomous spiders and flooding washing them away, many of the tunnel people have put together elaborate camps with furniture, ornaments and shelves filled with belongings.

Steven and girlfriend Kathryn’s base – under Caesar’s Palace casino – is one of the most elaborate. They even have a kettle and a makeshift shower fabricated out of an office drinking water dispenser.

These “tunnel people” are nothing more than glorified hobos. This is going to lead to trouble. Homeless people from around the country are going to read this story in the newspaper right before they use it as a blanket. Vegas is going to end up littered with tunnel people. That’s the worst kind of infestation known to man.

This might be the cheap lodging alternative I’ve been looking for while planning my trip to Vegas. I guess the only problem would be bringing a chick back to my place after a night on the town. I’m pretty sure leading a young drunk girl down a dark flood tunnel is about as close to rape as it gets.

    If the above couple lives below Caesar's and trolls for slot credits, then by the looks of it, the bottom couple lives below Wendy's and trolls for cheeseburgers.

    They do realize how ridiculous it is at somepoint.

    My real concern, a Demolition Man like revolt of the people below.
