Ei klovnikammoisille – yöpyminen pellemotellissa kysyy kanttia

Matkailu · Tim Isokivi

Pellejen on tarkoitus on yleensä herättää iloa ja naurua, mutta useat ihmiset pitävät niitä lähinnä karmivina. Monille pelleteemaisessa majapaikassa yöpyminen saattaisi kuulostaa todelliselta painajaiselta.

Yhdysvaltojen Nevadan erämaassa sijaitsee Clown Motel, joka on nimensä mukaisesti klovniteemainen tienvarsihotelli. Motellin aulassa on näytillä peräti 500 erilaista pelleä. Huoneista niitä ei onneksi löydy, vaikka ovia koristavatkin pellejen kuvat.

Kaiken lisäksi motelli sijaitsee aivan vanhan hautausmaan vieressä. Vaikka paikka vaikutaa kaikin puolin lähinnä kauhuelokuvan tapahtumapaikalta, vaikuttavat yöpyjät olleen Facebookin perusteella tyytyväisiä sen palveluihin. Motelli on nimittäin kerännyt yli 4/5 pisteen arvosanan 77 arvostelun perusteella.

Why wouldn't the first stop on @shecallsmebunny birthday road-trip (from which we are now safely home) be the #oldtonopahcemetery (located right next to the Clown Motel… Which we just learned on this trip and I love). "Old Tonopah Cemetery was founded May 7, 1901 with the burial of John Randel Weeks, and was active until April 1911 when the number of dead outgrew the tiny plot, and the growing town required a new cemetery. Some three hundred people are interred at the old location, including many of Tonopah's pioneer residents, many of whom fell victim to the mysterious 1902 "Tonopah Plague", the cause of which still remains a mystery, Other eternal residents include some fourteen miners who fell victim to the Tonopah-Belmont Mine fire of February 23, 1911, among them Big Bill Murphy who died saving miners at age 28, and Nye County Sheriff Thomas Logan, killed in a shoot-out in a Manhattan bordello." [Old Tonopah Cemetery atlasobscura.com] I look forward to walking around this cemetery and town when we have more time to explore. It's quite a fascinating area. We left our place on Sunday 9/25 – just before noon. We stopped not far past this cemetery to have lunch. Then continued north through the middle of Nevada – once we left Tonopah we entered new territory for us and that's *always* super exciting. No reservations or set plans – total fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants roadtrip ••• but that's quickly becoming our "norm" and we really love it ❤️ We had no idea where we were going to call home on day 1 but we would find out a few hours later. #roadtrip #bunnys38bdayroadtrip #cemetery #1901 #ghostown #nevada #wildwildwest #adventure #clownmotel #hauntings #familyfun #whaticallfun #lovemylife #headstones
