    270 posts on driving thru Duvall. If this keeps up the "city" will have to widen main street.

    For those that did not know, and those that had no reason to care,
    DUVALL LIVES!

    Brighter at night, than the Big Apple, LA, or the Vegas strip.

    Can be seen from outer space at greater distances than any of the
    metropolitan areas.


    Well, maybe not all of the metropolitan areas. I may have gone a little overboard there.

    Are you forgetting the prestigious and cutting edge weekly Snoqualmie Valley Record?

    I did give away a marked up DeLorme when I moved away and came to Montana. I gave it to ChadK. If he still has it I don't know, because he never posts here anymore.

    Damn! It sounds like Duvall has come a long way! I vividly recall my first visit to this quaint little town at the ripe age 15. My best memory is my visit to the former drug store (I think it’s now a Mexican Restaurant). Upon exiting, I was confronted by the sight of 4 – 5 locals, who were waiting in the parking lot with the intention of beating me to a pulp. Fortunately, the clerk let me and my friend escape out the back door. Later on, another group (it could have been the same people) threw eggs at us while we were sitting in a parking lot. Since then, I haven’t really had much desire to spend a whole lot of time in Duvall.

    Good grief. What did you do to them to cause such hostility?

    Perhaps DUVALL has come on gentler and kinder times. Perhaps you should visit again. Unless the same folks still live there.

    Nothing that I recall. It was probably a simple matter of me looking like a young punk who would be fun to kick around for a bit.

    That was back in the day when our city council members dealt weed on the side. Well, at least one of them did. It were a little rough around the edges 20+ years ago. Duvall has become much softer since then. You're safe to return as long as you don't stay too long.

    I wonder if I could get back into the Duvall Tavern now?

    Enough green backs at the door, with the Matre 'd, and I am sure you could find a stool to perch on. Probably not the same one Greg hit with the motorcycle tho.

    People and places change. From the sound of things, Duvall is not the same place that it was back then. In a similar sense, I am not the same person that I was then. Heck, I’d be willing to give Duvall another chance. Especially since it is now considered "the Paris of the west".
