Bainbridge is a high dollar Seattle island, have to take a ferry. I think you can access by land, but it takes a lot longer. I doubt with the law enforcement on the island that they'd have much problem with vagrants. I was parking on a back side road, wasn't there 5 minutes before they showed up. When I saw the video pics of the tent city there, I never realized it was like that in Seattle. I found Seattle to be a quite tiny city and other than the Space Needle I haven't really toured Seattle, always roll in and jump on the ferry, $80 for the bus.

I'm not a city person. I've always liked trees more than people. I did try to live in a few different cities when I was younger, but it always turned out to be a mistake. Some places were more of a mistake than others, like Montreal, spring 1970. That one was pretty close, but I did make it out of there in one piece.

I absolutely hate cities, always grew up in rural areas and country. I have only lived what I consider one city and that was when I first moved back to Ca. in 75 and we stayed in a motel in downtown San Diego. Absolutely can't understand how people like that environment to live in.Everything was fine when we hung near the beach, but city is too claustrophobic. I was out of there after 2 weeks, went back to the north east valley of L.A. for a few years before I had to get back to the country. I grew up in Sandy Hook, Ct. only left because of the brutal winters. Now I live at the base of the Appalachian trail, this is my back yard. If I were wanting to sleep in an RV in L.A. it would only be on a beach.Otherwise I gotta have trees also.

LOTS of trees in this area - very lush growth - the area is classified as an interior rain forest - we don't really get a lot of rain like they do at the coast, but enough that things grow fast - good hunting and fishing here for those interested - deer, elk and some moose - also 2 types of bears, cougars, wolves, coyotes, wild turkeys, grouse - streams, rivers and lakes ( and there are many of them ) give up a variety of fish, some up into the 30+ lbs range

So that attracts heroin addicts from the rest of the country, which is the main reason why there are so many addicts in Seattle. When I go through Seattle I don't even like to slow down any more.
Well that explains a lot.

Just stop Now I remember why I wanted tall lockers, for the fishing poles.

@Sleddgracer, I've been through that area several times, on both the TransCanada and hwy 3, plus I once spent about a week near Parson. It's all extremely beautiful and peaceful, plus the interior rain forest is very cool, even the Devil's Club, if you manage to avoid it.

@802trees, yes, it goes a long way toward explaining how what was a fascinating, and generally very laid back city 30 or 35 years ago became such a [multiple expletives deleted] hole nowadays.

@marc01, I knew there was a good reason I didn't want those short lockers I found on Oregon craigslist, thanks very much for reminding me what it was. I don't think a shotgun would fit very well in those short lockers either.
