Must be headed for Bremerton,, Seattle is a really cool city,, right on the bay, lots of yuppys, and MSN's home,,, It has rained like a cow peeing on a flat rock this year, but spring is here , and the weather will be fantastic,, not too hot and not too cold, lots to do,, sailing the san juan islands, close to B.C. Canada, and Victoria, I live in Portland Oregon ,, which is about 3 hrs south,, and its even better here,, Enjoy your time there,, Bill

I hang my hat here in Portland too.
The only real bummer about Seattle is the convoluted rush-hour traffic. You'll get used to it before you get used to the gas prices.. Bring your fishing poles.. The fishin' is great in Puget Sound - the bite'll be on soon for the Salmon, if they don't close the season down early like they did here in the Columbia river.
Good luck to ya!

I'm assuming it's PSNS you're going to work at? If thats the case, dont move to the Seattle area, otherwise you have to ride the ferries to work. If the ferries arent running for whatever reason it's a long drive home. You may want to try somewhere in or around Port Orchard, Silverdale, maybe Poulsbo or even Shelton.

OMG, the traffic, I spent a few days there last summer on my road trip. The traffic literally kept me there two days. One night I was heading up to BC and my boy got sick and we were late getting out until four PM or so. Forget it, had to go back to Seatak at our hotel we stayed at the night before. Then on the way back from BC we would have normally drove thru a city like that and gotten out into the state a ways before stopping at some little town. NO WAY, we had to stay at a hotel right before Seattle. My god that traffic is MURDER, MUCH worse than the San Francisco bay area.

But it is a very cool place. Victoria Island up in BC was awsome as well.

Yes, I-5 passing through downtown Seattle can be very bad in either direction. I-5 through Everett gets pretty bad too.

Bremerton is kind of a dumpy city but it will be very close to work. There are definitely better places that arent too far from the Yard. But the traffic can be really bad there too at quitting time, especially when there is a carrier (sometimes two) there.

What shop/code are you going to work for?

No kidding, left out of Seattle on my way to Vietnam, it was raining cats and dogs. Returned a year later and it was still raining cats and dogs. My last year in the Air Force was spent in C-141's flying all over the place. Everytime we went into that area it was raining. freakin place looks like a tropical rain forest.

VINCE,,,, Being from Texas ,, I bet it does look like a rain forest to you ,, but without the rain,, everything would be brown,, thats why the Northwest is the most beautiful part of the US, INHO, altho this year we have had enough rain for a lifetime,, 200% + over yearly average
