        Anyone planning to drive back to Seattle Sunday morning? I'm thinking of an early AM drive back on Hwy 9.

        Any recommendations on places to stay that are close to Van Dusen?

          I'll need to drive back early Sunday, Steve -- the earlier the better, in fact.

          Last year, I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Richmond, out toward the airport. It's fairly convenient to the show, but I liked it for the secure indoor parking and the brew pub next door. I haven't made a reservation yet, but I'll probably stay there again this year.

            Anyone want to cruise up Friday? I'll be hitting the Costco gas station in Woodinville and taking Highway 9 north.

              I'll be going Friday also. What time will you be leaving Woodinville? I will be leaving by 9 to beat the traffic at the Massey Tunnel.

                Mike, I'll try to be at Costco by 9, but if I'm not there. leave without me. I don't want to hold people up like I did last year.

                    Well, the Universe sent me the not so subtle message that I wasn't going to get to this years event. I was finally on my way after 5 hours of delay due to dead cell phone and other minor issues. Then 3 blocks from home the computer on my new fuel injection system died. So car no move.

                      Further update on my car: This problem was caused by the dongle that connects the cars computer to my laptop. It apparently failed as I was driving and wrote random data into the FI computer. Talked at length with Specialist Components (Great Customer Service BTW) and was able to get it to work long enough to reload a good map into the computer. They are sending a new dongle vie mail.
