That place is nothing like the other place you showed us!

Where did you find such a better place to move into? ;) hehe


Great job folks. Maybe I can convince the family to get a trip to seattle soon.. (my mothers family lives up there)

I need to come by! I looked in this thread, but I guess it was before when we were talking about it, you mentioned where it's at.

I was up at the northgate mall last night (Long day of Awesome King-Tut exhibit, Vegan donuts, vegan cupcakes, and Science center!!!) and Looked for you guys in there but I didn't see anything, so I figured maybe it's the one downtown?

Also; HOW THE EFF DO YOU SEATTLE PEOPLE DEAL WITH THE PARKING?! Seriously, took me 21 minutes to find parking for the science center, and I still had to pay 16 bucks =[

Park at one of the day lots around the outskirts of the metro area, and take public transportation to wherever you're wanting to go. SDOT runs a lot of pretty conveniently located lots (at least for where I want to go when I'm up there visiting), and the light rail is pretty convenient. Buses aren't horrible, since compared to most "big" cities Seattle doesn't really have any proper ghetto neighborhoods.

I wish they'd build a proper subway though. Living in DC really spoiled me for public transit.

That requires a lot of knowing where you're going haha.

Every time I go to seattle it's a "Where the FUCK is this place?!" Followed by my girlfriend with her GPS out telling me turn by turn directions that work 50% of the time. lol

There are tons of parking garages in seattle, or parking lots, we always use those, one around every corner :lol: It's at the Crossroads Mall in Bellevue across that pond. We are opening soon, will need a part timer...hoping to transition them into full time if the shop does well. If you still need work, hit up Aergis =)

Not counting passing through the airport on trips, I have been in Seattle twice. Both times, the weather was absolutely stunning and clear and I swore there wasn't a prettier city.

When the weather is nice in Seattle it's as nice as it gets anywhere on the planet. Sadly we spend the other 50 weeks of the year paying for it ;)

I love the weather here in Seattle, it's my type. The million different types of rain, the super sunny on one half of the sky and super stormy on the other half. The sun rays poking through the stormy skies. And when it's summer time, it's the best, because it doesn't get super hot and it smells nice and you can go swimming without getting a sunburn!

The only thing I don't like is when we get snowed in...

Washington is beautiful. When you aren't combatting the GRAY.

Image

Most of my year there was spent generally despising the Army, which trickled rather badly into most aspects of my life. But then again, I bought tickets to PAX Prime while we were leaving Korea and got to WA only to be told I couldn't take leave for the convention as I'd be in Yakima. There was a pretty bad snow that took out power in our house for about 3 days, and for some reason Washington drivers don't know how to drive when it's raining. I don't know whether that was because we were around Fort Lewis with a lot of out of state drivers or because they're bad in general. And the taxes on everything in that state are deplorable, and somehow the state is still always broke. Not to mention gas prices were literally breaking us while we lived there, and rent was through the roof as well. It's a bad sign when you move back near DC and it's a lower cost of living.

I like the rain. It's like the sky is whispering jokes to the ground in a secret language, and if I can just listen hard enough, maybe I'd be able to understand it someday. Then I'd be able to laugh at the jokes, too.

You can still get sunburns in overcast weather. Clouds aren't typically very good at blocking UVA/UVB rays unless it's really thick cloud cover. I've had a few of those cloudburns. Can't really call them "sunburns" if you can't see the sun, after all!

I found a house in West Seattle (Fauntleroy) that I might end up buying. Asking price is $130k for a 4br/3ba 2800 sq ft house on a corner lot. I'm seriously considering making an offer on it sight unseen, but I'm kind of afraid of what kind of horrible money sink that would be considering the average price of homes in the area is running around 500-600k. Gotta be something HORRIBLY wrong with it if they're selling it that cheap. I've about decided that I'll be moving up to Seattle when my lease here is up next June, I can't handle another damnable summer here.

If I can get the time off work to get up there and go house shopping, I'll definitely be stopping in to check out the store that I helped name!

well....
i know i dont have to wrory about you visiting me :P

i live in eastern oregon, in the Columbia plateau
YAY FOR SEMI ARID DESERT!

honestly, i love the western side of the state (both oregon and washington)
but the eastern side just has its own beauty, plus less humidity to mess with my asthma and sinus issues!

i really think we should have a PNW MTadin get together one of these years, like the blizzcon one, just with fewer sweaty nerds! (i mean some of us have to be reading the health and fitness thread right?)

Everywhere you go has its own personal beauty. It's just a matter of personal preference as to which you like more - whether it's the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert, the ground fog at dawn in Germany's Black Forest, the coastline of the Puget Sound in Washington, or even the flat plains of Kansas, there's a paradise on earth for everyone. Mine just happens to be the rainforest environment of western Washington.

Yeah, there's a ton of areas like that in W WA. I used to live in Grapeview - the entire "town" was just a 6 mile loop off of SR 3, and there were only like 10 houses along the entire road. Our nearest neighbor was (I think) 2 1/2 miles away, and nothing but forest and a couple of small ponds everywhere else.
