PacNW in NOV

Yes yes .... yay for airline miles!

I am looking at crashing your side of the continent Nov 24-29.

About *THIS* close to buying the tickets, but I wanted to see who all would be free/willing to get together.

I will have a rental car, so have car will travel. My grandparents live in Bremerton, so I will probably be going north/south from there unless I get to continue my couch crashing ritual... I guess I should start getting a badge for every TFP couch I've been on

I plan to at least make a trip up to Van for the peeps up there ...

You guys made a PacNW meetup happen .. if you're free in that window, I will come down, be happy and merry and enjoy some time with friends.

I will probably be just about 30 mins. south of Bremerton the 24th-26th, so you can definitely count on meeting up with me.

YAY!!!

Streak - are you shooting for Vancouver or Seattle?

My tentative Plan -
Fri (24th) - fly in, with my grandparents,
Sat (25) Vancouver
Sun (26) Seattle
Mon/Tues (27-28) - undetermined

The ONE Thing that I HAVE!!!! to do is go to Peet's Coffee and 1) buy coffee and 2) take a pic of me at the coffee place.

I can do two separate ... whatever works for you guys.

For the out of towners .. where will Bodies be?

I haven't spent enough time in Seattle on previous trips to know much of what to suggest - about the only place I've eaten in the general area was Henry's in Tacoma

I'll know more about my plans for that weekend next weekend--SO and I are taking the train up to my folks place, but we have to arrange with them when we are going up and how long we will be there, and I'm not seeing my parents in person till next Sunday. The other thing I have to consult with them about is deciding to get off in Olympia or Seattle.

Let me know .. at this point I am planning to have a rental car with me, so that gives me some flexibility. I don't mind multiple meets depending on availability.

So I finally know my plans (roughly).

On Friday morning I'll be coming up to Seattle with my SO in tow. We get into King Street Station at about 12:30, and then plan on hanging around Seattle until 4 o'clockish, as we've got to catch the 4:20 ferry to Bremerton.

On Sunday afternoon we have to catch the train out of Seattle again at 5ish, but we can always catch an earlier ferry than planned if people want to meet up.

Our plans so far on Friday are to catch the bus up to Westlake and look at the tree and the other Christmas decorations that will be up. The other possibility, of course, would be to catch an earlier ferry and stage a meet-up in Bremerton or nearby on Friday. Though I'm thinking with the holiday traffic Sunday afternoon might be the better bet for everyone, anywhere.

Saturday in Vancouver - I know I've sent fly a PM, and he's interested in gettin together - so you Van folks *cough cough Ace cough cough* ... what/where do we want to go? Low budget is always great.

Hey monkie,

We're free the 26th, sunday and of course, love to meet up with ya. As we talked about dinner at say 6 or whatever time works best for you, earlier or later is good.

how about the Spaghettti Factory downtown. It's right off of Elliott.

Old Spaghetti Factory
2801 Elliott Ave
Seattle, WA 98121
(206) 441-7724

I was going to suggest Trinity for dancing, but it's closed on sundays. So perhaps bowling afterwards? I'll figure out which bowling place is close to the S.Factory and I'll get the address up here in the next couple days.

looking forward to it Monkie

Anyone/everyone who can make it, i'd love to meet ya

Spaghetti Factory Sounds awesome for the 26th, so does bowling - as long as no one laughs at me for bowling an <70 game and falling on my ass at least once, as I do every time (those floors are slippery suckers!!!) If we can squeeze in a game or two after dinner if we meet at 6, that sounds good to me.

So far, Monkie Travel Agenda -

Sat Nov 25 - Vancouver, possible attendees

If people are willing to get together earlier, that would be better for us. We have to be at King Street by 4:30 at the latest to get reserved seats, so a late lunch would probably work for us, as we'd have to leave a restaurant by 4 to get to the station. Otherwise you'll have to count me out this time.

I've got to factor in Drive time from BC ... anyone else need an earlier time?


so for a late lunch we're maybe shooting for 1-2 instead? Keep the feedback coming - I think 1:30 -2 would be the most realistic start marker for the southbound travel, since I don't know how busy the boarder will be, and it'll take a little time to get moving in the morning.

well, since I am new around here I hadn't really thought about getting in on this but what the hell, I'm in Bellingham so a visit to Seattle isn't that far of a drive. of course neither is Vancouver. So, sure, if I can make it and so far I don't foresee having any other plans count me in. I need to get out and meet new people and make new friends. I'll keep my eye on this thread for more info and concrete plans. feel free to pm me if any of you need any more personal info from me.
Oh, and thanks to Halx and the TFP myspace account for the kick in the ass to get me to join in.

Monkie, since you'll have 2 people in the car, you'll have a much easier time getting into Seattle with the use of carpool lanes. It usually takes me about 2 and a half hours to get from Vancouver to Seattle if the traffic is decent and the border isn't backed up too badly.

2 works well for us as then we can catch the 12:35 ferry out of Bremerton.
