"Life after people" gangways for the old Treasure Bay casino.
The bike is under the big X.

Excellent. Not sure if I should go for this one, or let someone else discover that cool place.

Maybe give em a few days, and if nobody grabs it then.....
I love that old abandoned stuff.

Far as I know, the only large leftover/abandoned casino stuff is this,
and theres a casino complex/boat sittin landlocked in a mudpuddle 5-10 mi south
of there. Theyve blocked off access to it now but, for years, I was
amazed that they left a bunch of slot machines and bar stools just sitting outside in the rain. I have some bar stools that look very similar
to those....
You used to be able to climb up on the boat(which looked more like a
big deep sea fishing trawler laying on its side, than a casino boat)
and walk thru it. It was kinda creepy inside as you could hear critters movin
about and such. I used to have pictures of it, but theyre gone now,
maybe Jamie has some.

Mmm hmm.





These were taken in 2008. I don't believe I've been back there since. Though I was just near there a few days ago.
