How many of you live there? How many of you have visited? What is the cost of living? What is the city's economic state in general? What industries are picking up out there?
Don't get me wrong, I've been thinking long and hard about moving to Seattle ever since I heard about it being the rainy city full of model type bitches, but I didn't see it being any "better" or "worse" than where I am currently, Jacksonville, FL, but this whole not getting harassed by local police for smoking weed kind of changed all that.
So, don't think of me as just another pothead flocking to smoke out in Seattle, rather, someone who's put a lot of thought into wanting to relocate to Seattle(mainly to get out of the south), that has finally been convinced Seattle is at the very least, far more progressive than the city I am in now, without being overrated like New York, Miami, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Hi, I want to climb Mt Everest. I'm physically fit, and used to hike a lot in Alaska, but I've never done a mountain and I don't exactly have crampons lying around.
I'm just looking for a touristy beginners treck up this thing. The lonely planet package is for about $1,500 and the REI one is for twice that.
Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, or reviews from their own experiences they bestow on me? I'm an American living in Seoul, so I'd imagine airfare should be pretty cheap.
