    I wish I could be there as well, but I'm also in the eastside. I wish Orvis Bellevue would film it and put it on their Youtube channel.

    That'd be great. PM sent for my address so you could also deliver some of the free beer/pizza to my apartment mid-class.

    Is there parking for a truck and trailer? I'm not sure if I have even been there since they have moved. Sounds like a great chance to let some of the traffic blow through while heading over to fish Friday and Saturday and hit the fly show on Sunday. Sounds like a great way to start a great weekend, centered all around fishing.

    BDD- I't depends on the trailer. If it's just a drift boat I usually just unhook mine and leave it in a spot. If it's an RV your going to be hard pressed to find any room. There is a QFC across 102nd Ave that is easy walking distance but I'm not sure if they would ticket/tow. The post office is also up Bellevue Way from us and their lot should be empty at this time of night. Just a few thoughts, hope to see you there!

    I don't think you'd have too much trouble. If we are talking a raft trailer. You might have to walk a little. But Bellevue becomes a ghost town after 530-6

    I'd say go for the QFC lot. Worked there for a few years in high school and the only time I saw a vehicle ticketed/towed was during the holidays when we hired parking lot patrols to keep the mall traffic out of there. As Jessie said after 5:30 it clears out and nobody should care

    That being said don't sue my ass if you get ticketed/towed

    Thanks guys, just a truck, trailer and pontoon boat. I don't mind walking, assuming I won't get mugged afterwards. I just mapped it and it looks like the same place that I visited years ago. Not sure why I thought it was moved. QFC sounds like a good option. I'll go in and buy some stuff and then won't feel so bad.

    If that's possible I'd listen in.

    cyber beer and cyber pizza works for me.

    This is going to be so awesome (especially knowing and having been a part of a lot of those back stories). Too bad, I too am an Eastsider. :(

    You guys have a good time and anything Jesse says about me is a lie!

    Oh, side note, Jess...add to the convo topics, why not to keep spit cups in the truck drink holders.
