Okay, I've been in Seattle for a couple of weeks and have never seen so many W8's in one place. Lots of rain here and my W8 never loses traction even when starting and going up the slippery hills (Bridgestone RE960AS tires).

I'm still getting used to the 50 degree daily, 38 degree nightly temperatures compared to the 70 degree daily, 60 degree nightly temperatures I'm used to in San Diego, but overall...having fun!

I was wondering which Liverpool you are moving from. Are you moving cross-country? cross-pond?

I am starting a position with a company that makes measurement equipment for semiconductor manufacturing. When I started looking for a new position we were thinking of heading back east closer to our parents, but this is a good opportunity and the northwest US sounds like a good adventure. We are pretty excited about Portland's reputation for microbreweries and veg-friendly food... and to just be near a city again.

Liverpool, NY. I just love the area, I went to school in Coeur D' Alene and I work for ADESA auto auctions and just transferred to the Seattle location from Syracuse NY.

This snow the last few days in Seattle has been a blast to drive in. I love watching people try (and fail) to navigate the hills and slide off the road as I rip past them. Ahhhhhh 4-Motion, how I love you!

Welcome to the PNW you transplants! We should set up a GTG when the days get longer.

P0011 has kept mine idle this week. I was really looking forward to getting out and seeing how it performed in the snow. My paperW8:
