    Yup, back in the 80's I worked in several casinos in Nevada, saw that carpet more than often.

    We have similar carpet in the alley where I bowl, I did trip over a black bowling bag left on the floor, it just blended into the carpet.

    Although this type of carpet is a recent thing, they just used a plain indoor/outdoor carpet back in the day, so it would determine on your layout's period if you were to use this type of carpet.

    Here I am. This is how I solved the stair problem. The raised platform is just right and I will put restrooms at the end of it. It needs a little work still. DSC_0478.JPG

    Were I worked out in the 60's , 70's & 80s' didn't have such fancy work. Just industrial grade carpet and little other fancy work. I doubt I could still do such things with a war torn leg. I'm still enjoying the show.

    it's taking forever to get anything anymore. I ordered some respirator filters three weeks agofrom Texas. A shipment from France has taken 30 days so far, according to tracking it's stuck in New York.

    I have something on order, which seems to have stalled now for some time back in the midwestern US. :(
