you ever really wanted to go somewhere you haven’t been before?Sometimes you want to go on an African
safari.Sometimes you wish you could see
the Egyptian pyramids.I’ve personally
wanted to take a trip to San Francisco and tour Alcatraz prison.I actually made that trip a while ago and it
was everything I’d hoped!*chuckle*
I’ve found a new place I’d like to see.
Something to put on my “bucket list”, so to speak. And it’s not in some foreign country, or one
of the “Seven Wonders of the World”. It’s
a motel. A motel full of clowns. Yes, I said full of clowns. Do you know anyone who’s afraid of
clowns? I’m sure they wouldn’t much care
for this place. And it’s called
appropriately enough, Clown Motel.
Clown Motel is located in a place called Tonapah, Nevada. It’s one of those places that’s way out in
the desert and the next closest town is about 70 miles of desert away. And not only does this place have thousands
of clowns, it’s also right next to a turn of the century cemetery. Is the Clown Motel haunted, you may ask? Why, now that you mention it, I think
hauntings have been mentioned once or twice.
But if they include clowns, they’re fun hauntings, right? Fun hauntings including clowns and full-sized
“At one point early in the evening we were
hearing strange sounds and what appeared to be someone screaming followed by
lot popping and crunching noises. While in the bathroom my buddy decided to
have a peak outside of the bathroom window. My buddy lets out a yell and busts
out into the room and I'm like "what?!" He doesn't say anything but
goes right to his back and gets his Smith and Wesson 357 out. I'm thinking
"what the $%#" and I dig into my bag to get my Sig 232 out. He says
we need to get the %@#& out of there right now. I saw he was serious and
that made me serious about it, we grabbed our $#!^ for the most part (left a
few clothes behind) and looked out the peep sight to make sure it was clear to
our car. I threw my gun into my pocket, he put his in his waistband and we
hauled ass to the car and got the hell out of there. On the ride away, I asked
what he saw in the bathroom. He told me when he looked out the window there was
this creepy-ass clown facing away from the window, pants at his ankles, making
a weird motion. He told me the clown slowly turned 90 degrees to look at him,
my friend said he looked down to see this clown $#@%ing a full-sized dinner
ham, when he looked up from the ham $^@!ing the clown was smiling and waving at
Wow, a full-sized
dinner ham! That’s…uh…well I guess it’s
not as frightening as seeing a laughing clown with a bloody axe or
something. Just make sure all your
dinner hams are secured and things should be ok, right?
Now I’m sure
some people would be freaked out and feel like they’re being watched with all
the clowns around the motel, but I don’t think it would bother me. I think I’d even like to tour the cemetery
and look around a bit. What would be
even more fun would to put on some evil clown makeup after checking in and then
peek into the windows of other motel rooms.
That would be fun, wouldn’t it?
At least until I come across a room and find another clown peeking back
out at me. On second thought, maybe I
won’t do that.
where I’d like to go. On the plus side,
beyond all the haunting rumors the hotel is supposed to be very friendly and
well maintained! So one of these days I
do want to try and make it there for an overnight stay.
