I have been blogging since 2006.
That is a long time and I have felt rather lethargic and ambivalent about the whole deal lately so I have been taking a break.
We went to Seattle over the weekend and I can tell you this, they can have that fucking city.
Parking is non existent and they charge outrageous fees for the privilege.
Parking lots near anything having some event nearby get away with highway robbery, I kid you not.
Spots that normally go for $4 or five bucks shoot up to $30.
When all existing parking spaces within a half fucking mile are full, private and public, the city of Seattle gets in on the action and charges you $47 when you try and get creative.
Ask me how I know this, I dare you.
We went to the Seahawks/Raiders game.
Parking was anywhere from $20 to SIXTY FUCKING DOLLARS!!
I can't believe the city lets people get away with that kind of gouging but apparently they do
Oh yeah, I have a message to those people who design the road direction signs around that city too.
YOU ARE FUCKING MORONS!!
In over 35 years of driving in cities all across this once great country I have never seen such cryptic, obscure fucking road signs and I never want to have to try and deal with that shit in the dark, in the rain and in a strange city ever again.
Another little thing I noticed is how fucking rude and impatient those sonsabitches are.
You would think you were in New York City with all the constant horn honking and the fucking pedestrians OWN that city man.
Some asshole was beeping their horn every where you went for no apparent reason that I could discern.
Down town was a freak show so that was mildly entertaining whilst I waited outside the Seahawks merchandise store.
Finally got to cross the Space Needle off my bucket list. Saw the Jimi Hendricks museum shit at Seattle Center too.
$90 for four people at each place to get in.
Expensive town people, expensive town.
Unless you absolutely have to go there or are a seeker of pain I would suggest you avoid the place at all costs.
