Travel, Travel, Travel!


Take a walk on the wild side! Well, not too wild. When visiting my dad in Pahrump Nevada, I wanted to get a picture in front of the Chicken Ranch Brothel sign so I could show my friends back home. My dad’s wife suggested we go tour Sheri’s Brothel which was right next door. We got there, and it seemed like they were just opening up. There were six of us: me, my dad, my brother, and our wives. My dad sometime goes to Sheri’s Ranch for the sports bar, and watches pay per view sporting events on the big screen TV. My dad’s wife works for the local golf course, and they had their luncheon at Sheri’s Ranch. It is an interesting thing in Pahrump that to a certain extent, Sheri’s Ranch Brothel is just another place of business.
Anyway, we waited for the tour, and finally one of the the ‘girls’ came out. She was wearing a string bikini, and high heel shoes. She led us on the tour. She showed us a price sheet of base prices for various types of services. From I remember, the cheapest thing was in the four figures. She showed us where the girls would line up for the customers. There were little bungalows out back where the girls lived. She explained about the girl’s work schedules, how they get frequent health checks. She unabashedly answered all of our questions. She showed us some of the special theme rooms. One of the rooms was a hot tub room. I think she said that activities in this room were limited due to health concerns, and that the hot tub would need to be drained and cleaned, etc. There was another room that was dungeon, and had bondage type stuff in it. The strangest room was the Budweiser room. The walls and ceiling were covered with Budweiser posters, pictures, and even the hood from a Budweiser race car. I just picture some guy coming in and dropping down $5000 or more, and saying something like “Yeah baby, I want the Budweiser room!”
They have a gift shop where you can buy Sheri’s Ranch Brothel souvenirs. They have stuff like coffee cups, shot glasses, decks of cards, etc. They also have ‘menus’ which have pictures of the girls.
Sheri’s Ranch Brothel was not some dirty skanky place. It was clean and I guess tasteful for a brothel (not that I have seen the inside of any other brothel). My wife and I passed some other small brothels while driving through Nevada. We had seen a billboard advertising a brothel miles ahead. When we passed it, it turned out to be a single wide mobile home painted gaudy pink. Very tacky looking. Kind of gross. Thankfully, Sheri’s Ranch Brothel was nothing like that.
Touring Sheri’s Ranch Brothel was definately a different experience. If you are ever in Pahrump, Nevada, give it a shot! Pahrump, NV is about an hour west of Las Vegas in Nye County (just outside Clark County where brothels are illegal).

We got a 1am phone call last night (or this morning) from my sister-in-law. My wife’s parents were travelling in Europe, and taking a couple cruises over there. Apparently on one of the cruise ships, the railing on the gangway broke, and my mother-in-law fell 8 feet landing on concrete. She broke her hip. Another woman also fell, and broke her leg. She ended up going in for surgery in Rotterdam, or Amsterdam. She will need to recover for a week to 10 days, then they will fly back to the US and to home. They were less than a week into their month long vacation. The rest of their trip is scrubbed. It sounds like the the cruise company, or the travel group is taking care of them for now. They are probably worried about being sued. But with the travel insurance they are covered anyway. Accidents happen! If you are spending the kind of money that many vacations cost, you really need travel insurance! And beyond the lost money of a blown vacation, what if you need to be flown to an emergency room or something like that?
Now we are waiting to hear back from my father-in-law. Hopefully my mother-in-law recovers quickly and fully.
