    I'm looking for a sled this winter, but man that newer hybrid raised my eyebrows. Probably a little out of my price range.

    Go on a weekday if you can. Weekends give a new definition to claustrophobia.

    I agree with going to the Portland show vs the Puyallup show. Love the Puyallup show, don't get me wrong, but the Portland show is A LOT bigger. Plus, getting close to the end of the show season (last show is Redmond for this circuit) so may get a better deal, especially if they have any on the floor. :)

    Sweet, I don't think Puyallup is too far - and I believe Portland is within a couple hours. I liked going to the ones here in AK for the same reason, you can usually get some smoking deals.

    Puyallup is a close neighbor to Auburn. The Portland show is right across the Columbia so you don't have to deal with Portland traffic. Plan to stay all day.
