I am a Native Washingtonian. Born and raised in "Bummer" town (That's Bremerton for all the outsiders). Graduated from Bremerton Highschool, then Pacific Lutheran University (in Parkland aka Tacoma), and finally from the University of Washington.
Business and my wife now bring me to Hillsboro (west of Portland) Oregon. Been a long time Subaru admirer, and as of tomorrow at 11AM will be the proud owner of a Silver GT Ltd Wagon.
So you can see I have up and down the I-5 corridor and will be for many more years (Lord willing). In fact, Bremerton will always be home. My folks still live in the same house to which I was brought home from the hospital (pretty impressive given I am an ancient 31).
Nice to meet ya. God bless each of you.
