I jsut moved to Seattle a few months ago, and joined the SPUG list
a few months before that. I currently live out in Bothell, and commute to
downtown Seattle. Because I'm a typical 8-5'er, I commute by bus, but
when i have to drive, it is really bad.
To the point, I've driven downtown before at 7ish (for a mariner's
game), and doing it even every week is not something I would look forward
to. A partial reason why I don't go now.. but mostly because I become
busy with a project, and forget... :>
If it stays downtown, I'll most likely still try and come, but I'd
like to express an opinion for the eastside as well. I-405 at 7pm is alot
better off than I-5, from what I've seen these last two months,
especially when sports or other events take place.
