    About 20 yrs ago Duvall proper started on its path to being a full fledged suburban community. Its been down hill ever since.

    I feel so fortunate to not live in one of those god awful cookie cutter communities. That shit is depressing.

    When it does happen you can always move to Moses Lake.

    When our youngest was just born, we looked hard at a Buchan rambler in one of those communities. My bride decided that the daily commute into town over Novelty Hill Road was a deal breaker - especially in the winter. Can't say as I regret our choice.

    Where is your spirit of adventure, Kent? LOL.

    That road is well named.

    That crappy Novelty Hill commute is the one thing keeping an all out suburban sprawl from happening here. That, and the floods... and rabid bears, man eating cougars, Itchy Dogs, crippling snowfall, unfriendly locals, and more.

    Buchan/Duvall - something about those two words in one sentence that makes my head spin. There was a day not long ago when a new log structure was considered "upscale" in that little town.
    You used to be able to find inhabited old growth stumps around there. Anyone know if they're still there? Rumor was that they were sometimes used as stills years ago.

    In 1979 a 320i was just the ticket for navigating that sucker, and helped to make my commute to Redmond ( a sleeper in its own right back then) all the more exhilarating.
    Snow ? It was surprisingly sure footed, although I eventually replaced it with a 4x4.
    Didn't do well in the floods though.

    That barbeque place was good last time we went through too.
    But I still miss the old Silver Spoon!

    Armadillo BBQ here now is awful, and an embarrassment to the term BBQ.
