Washitonion's are getting a bad rap! I went there last summer and dropped some cash in various shops, with guides, at hotels and the like. Maybe I should spend locally in Seattle, drive there and give them the Ol'Washitonion! Seriously though, I didn't have that experience. I was probably more the sucker, than the rule. And everyone I spoke to was really friendly and forthcoming with info. I actually find that hard to believe. If you have real data, like shop names, then drop them, otherwise I call it the minority. I know no one that would go and leave trash anywhere. In fact, I probably don't know anyone that would even walk into a shop looking for data, without dropping some cash. Maybe I'm just in good company.
