Who the hell wants to live in Seattle? I don't even like working here... You get out to the suburbs and it's nice, but expensive. You have to go either waaay out (like past North Bend or Yelm or something), settle for a crowded apartment complex / condo / townhome, or live in a rat hole in Kent. I'm at 90 minutes average right now if I carpool. The bus is two hours, and I'm still around 90-105 minutes if I try to do the Sounder and transfer to local transit when I hit the city.
I can't tolerate being in that close of a space with that many people, so I'll stick with driving.
