Samuel Litman is originally from Atlantic City, New Jersey. He left the Jersey Shore for the even brighter lights of Las Vegas in 1992, and then found love in Spring Creek, Nevada in 2001. He lives with his wife Doris in what he calls the “mobile home section” of Spring Creek. This is Sam Litman’s slice of America


“These pictures were taken in Spring Creek in December of ’03 through February of ’04. We were hit by a few big snowstorms and the result was 3 feet of snow.”


“The mountains in the back are called the Ruby Mountains. They surround all of Spring Creek”



“Spring Creek has two sections, one called the mobile home section and another called the regular housing section. We live in the mobile home section.”


“Spring Creek has a nice-sized grocery store called Khoury’s, a convenience store, a few restaurants (most notably one called The Scoreboard which has a casino and a bar). We also have a Domino’s Pizza and a Mexican restaurant.”


“The elevations here range from 5,500 feet (where we live), to as high as 11,000 feet at the highest mountain peaks – which are sometimes covered with snow all year round.”

I lived in Spring Creek, Nevada from 2001 to 2013. I worked for 2 years at Wal mart in Elko from 2005 to 2007. I went to a college in Elko called Great Basin College from 2008 to 2012 for Broadcasting. My title was Associate of Applied Science Degree for Broadcasting Technology. I graduated May, 2012. Starting in September, 2012, we put our house up for sale in Spring Creek. We almost sold the house in December, 2012 but the person who was going to buy the house was fired from their job, so we lost the sale practically at the last minute, so the house has still not sold as of now, but there has been interest and lots of lookers, but no buyers as of yet. My wife was offered a good job in Las Vegas, NV in January, 2013 as a health inspector for Nevada, so we decided to move to Vegas because of the job offer, plus the fact that I lived in Vegas from 1992 to 2001, and really missed it. We moved to Vegas February 28th, 2012 and got an apartment on the East side of town. I am currently getting my resume professionally done so I can get a job in my chosen field.
