BUMP

So I'm going down next Friday to pick something up and for a quick day trip.

I've been down and driven to and past Seattle a bunch of times but have never used the I405 or toll bridges. Where I'm going will require me to use the 405.

Is there anything I need to know?

I know beatdownvictim a couple months back said something about the new tolls being confusing?

AFAIK, Washington and BC do not have an agreement in place for tolls, so you can drive on them as much as you want and they won't be able to come after you.

I switch onto the 405 from the 5 at exit 182. It's a big highway junction where the 525 turns into 405.

Is it pretty simple to navigate and easy sailing?

I'm guessing the 520 bridge is where the tolling is that you were talking about?

I know they won't charge, I'm not worried about the toll per say but rather the navigating

Yeah navigating south onto the 405 from I5 is fine, its the 2 right lanes and I find traffic kind of thins out after the alderwood mall exit(thats after rush hour though)

You can play it on the safe side and just take the right lanes before the alderwood mall exit?

Hit up the chickfila for me thanx!

Just found out Lowes in Canada has a 75 pack of lawn fabric staples for $9.99

Thank god for Lowes, eh? Too bad they're so freakin' far away. Almost as far away as Bellingham, hee hee.

Lawn Fabric

Lawn fabric is what you need when the Mr. Big and Tall Shop no longer carries your size.

I heard Bellis Fair mall is accepting CAD at par right now.
Is there any truth to this rumour?

It should be. You're probably referring to this:

It also says up to 25% discount. Seeing that you're paying about $1.29CDN for $1USD, the maximum 25% discount means it won't exactly be on par.

wouldn't the lawn fabric be held in place by whatever you're putting on top of it already? rocks, wood chips, etc?

It's pretty sweet, sometimes by vehicle it's like the same if not longer than the normal line since so many people have Nexus now but that's an exception to the rule.

Flying is where it's super sick. Wife just went on 2 trips to the US and both times she was the only person using the Nexus line while the regular line people were all looking at her like dafuq!

When you're flying, make sure you enter your PassID on your NEXUS card into your traveler profile so you can use Pre-check security screening lanes. Save a ton of time over waiting in the normal lanes.

If any of you are planning on visiting Bellingham, check out the deli at Winco. Their salads are really worth it. Their Kung Pao and Orange Chicken are also good value for the money.

A quick FYI - Winco only takes cash or debit. They don't take credit. Decent prices though. A good alternative to Walmart without having to drive so far down Guide Meridian.
