Question When did you first move to Seattle?

When did you first move to Seattle? Where did you move from and what brought you here? Work? Needed a change?

Moved here in October of last year for work. Always loved Seattle. Grew up in Alaska but spent the last 15+ years in Oklahoma. Oklahoma City is where I go to see tons of potential and momentum. Seattle, where I now live, is where I can relax and walk with my family...something that is remarkably difficult to do in OKC.

I've been here for 10 years in April, would be 11 but I spent a year and a half living in the UK. I've lived and traveled all over, but Seattle is home.

I have lived in Seattle since 1973, since I was born in that year. My family moved here from California in the late 1960's. Things were so different back then. If I knew then what I knew now, I would have bought some property on Mercer Island or in Kirkland... geez it was all dirt back then.

I moved here from Texas on April 2011 because my employer was closing their facility in Irving,TX. It was either stay in Dallas and look for a new job and compete with other laid-off people or stay with my employer and relocate. I decide to relocate to Seattle after also considering Reno or Las Vegas,NV, since I have family here.

Born here, raised here. I am one of the rapidly vanishing breed of natives who remember when.....

You know....us insufferable, smug, moss-covered, caffiene addicts who know where Goretex came from, and how to avoid the dreaded leopard slug, and who have 6-digit REI numbers.

My aim in life is not to take myself very seriously....because no one else seems to!
