Yes, I do live in the Seattle area. I live in Renton, south of Seattle and north of Tacoma. Unfortunately, I spend most of my time in Renton or in Seattle. So, I'm not that familiar with the Tacoma area. I've heard that Tacoma used to by really rough, but it has gotten a lot better over the years. I know a few people who live in the Puyallup and Lake Tapps area. They really like living in that area and hear that the schools are good in Lake Tapps. It's just southeast of Tacoma. I don't think that the commute would be too terribly bad. I hear that Bonney Lake is a very nice area and probably worth checking out. Sumner might be another area to check out. That's about all I about the area. Sorry I can't be much more help. If you do end up coming up here, we'll have to go see some Thunderbird games in Kent.
Hey man, if I remember correctly, you live in the Seattle area. I may have a job offer near Fort Lewis, WA (just south of Tacoma), and was wondering if you could tell me a bit about the area (places to live and raise a family, schools, etc.). I don't have the job or anything yet, but thought I should get some info if I do get offered and accept it. Thanks.
