    Well, you will have to depend on Evan for the report of Duvall today.
    I am headed toward the salt so I will not be going there.

    Tomorrow might be your lucky day, however. I plan to visit the Paris of the West and partake of the natural beauty found there.

    Evan is feeling especially lazy and is enjoying the area's splendor from his office window.

    Evan is a lucky man. Visage of trees in spectacular splendor of autumn follage, mountains yearning for seasonal snow pack, skies moody with dark clouds, pushed by rough winds, allowing an occasional sunburst to peak through.....NO wait that isn't Duvall, that is Woodinville.

    Different scene altogether. You can't see crap from here.

    Just a short hop off of I-5, down State 203, along the scenic and bountiful Snoqualmie river, through Preston, Fall City, Carnation, Still Water and roll into DUVALL. WATCH YOURSELF ON THE ROUNDABOUT.

    I hate those damn things. I'm surprised that there isn't more wrecks on those things. Every time I get on one I get cut off by some smart ass. There's one in Sultan on highway 2, well just east of there. What a joke.

    You heard it here first, folks. If you attempt to visit Duvall, you will most likely suffer a tragic car accident upon entry.

    Wi-fi at the Duvall Coffee House!

    Cutting edge technology, sumptuous dining opportunities, Gourmet coffees for the discriminating palate. Vistas of un-parallel majesty. A magnificent river surging through the farmlands, along side of quaint roadways. All of this and roundabouts also. It just keeps getting better and better,

    Using these directions, those seeking Duvall will never find it, and that's a good thing. Clever move.

    Ah yes, but they can always stop and ask the gendarme at the roundabout,for directions. But one thing that is sadly lacking in
    Duvall, is a theme park. Perhaps big money from New York or
    California will come in and take advantage of this lacking feature.

    More neon and bigger roadways. That is the ticket.

    This thread is even better than that one word one. Keep it up you oldster. I can't call you an old man because I are one.

    Funny enough, when I was partaking in the usage of the local coffee house's technology yesterday, the table of hippies next to me were having a passionate discussion about the dangers of the 203 roundabout. It's a hot topic of discussion in these parts.

    Ah, so. Obviously they are not acquainted with the gendarme stationed at the Roundabout for tourist convenience. I was struck with the opinion that the roundabout was placed there for some sort of rally racing obstacle, combined with a swift decent on Novelty Hill road, across the bridge, and around the ROUNDABOUT. A few bails of straw placed strategically along the side of the road, some spectators standing alongside of the cows, at the side of the road and, voila, you have a rally! Eat your heart out Grand Prix.

    Throw in the wader and vest attired perplexed fisherman, wearing a wide brim floppy hat, with rod in hand, standing next to the bridge, wondering where all these people came from. Duvall at it's finest.
