Cool, well hit me up if you have any questions about the area.
If you need temporary room to park anything, Iíll extend that. I have Lots of room for outside parking and the 2 German Shepherds keep stuff pretty secure!
We moved here 6 years ago and looking for the best balance of commute to anywhere from Snohomish to pierce county. My work could be anywhere. Combined out in the country feel and price point. Seemed Maple Valley, Covington, Black Diamond fit the bill.
South/East Enumclaw/Graham was best for price/out of town, but commute was out of line to anywhere near seattle or farther. Snoqualmie/North bend was best for country and commute, but prices way higher then south King Co.

Homes now are stupid prices as you e seen and just saw on the news, 2018 is predicted to keep climbing at the same rate with more suburban sprawl than previous.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome to the pacific northwest.

The weather is surely a change from my previous locations: FL, SC, CA but I love the seasons and the Seattle area is stunning. The work schedule is dark to dark but it's winter and that's pretty much anywhere, I have no windows in my work area so its always sunny outside!

Look forward to meeting up with everyone in the area soon.

Are there any MC reunions held in this area?

Pikes Market 0 beware of the monk fish
I'll look up the green lake tavern pizza place this weekend!

Monk fish........................... I know what a monk fish is but I'm sure it may NOT be what you are eluding too!

Unfortunately, I do not see Green Lake Tavern online anywhere, I am thinking it has since closed. There are several restaurants in that vicinity that may be that restaurant renamed, but I can't tell. Really nice area...

If pizza is a concern, lol, Seattle ain't Chicago, period!
Just looked up north lake pizza, def try that next time I'm up there.
There's a couple Chicago deep dish places up around Ballard. Very good.
Our thin crust favorite is the Cloverleaf in Tacoma. It's worth trying.

Had a visit to the Seattle Mastercraft dealer today for a look around. WOW! Mastercraft has developed some stunning boats since I last purchased! The prices have gone to WOW too!
