We both have some troubles going on. I'll talk with Diane, who doesn't read here much anymore - she might be able to do it. Don't plan your trip on us - if either of us can do it, flight costs aren't precisely equal but could probably be finessed (dunno), cheap plane flights happen.
She's on facebook..
For me it's the timing, lack of save up time after some very bad gurgle going on recently.
Seattle - Peace and Love was there when I visited (we hit a museum together, to see the glass guy (she loved it, I didn't, did like her.). Hawkeye is nearby (chuckles). Neologist lives somewhere close. Hey, maybe Bernie... isn't he in Vancouver now?
