    Hi Chris,

    I'm planning my first trip to the Puyallup show, but need a little guidance. Everytime I try to map-out directions with mapquest or Google, I get sent to 2nd STREET (not Avenue), or some other street all together (in one case, Meeker). I can see 2nd Avenue on the map, but for some reason these mapping programs will not pinpoint 115 2nd Ave SE. What is the nearest cross street to the show?

    Thanks!

    George,
    I see what you mean. I'm sure that when you get there all you'll have to do is ask. I think I'll have to get out my military map and find a grid coordinate for it. Now if I can only find that compass...But..there's cars and beer involved...I WILL PREVAIL!!! :beers2: :laugh:

    its easy to find they have most of downtown blocked off.not like its a big town.remember its also a street fair.just get on a main road with backed up traffic & follow everyone,see the buicks & start yelling "CHRIS-E-POO,WHERE ARE YOU??":Dou:

    OK, sounds cool...never been to downtown Puyallup before, but shouldn't be too hard to find with those clues. I'll practice the "Chris-e-poo" yell before I get there. :laugh:

    I'm going to be up in Everett trying to cover around 13 - 15 miles, on foot, in 3 hours. Now doesn't that sound like fun!?

    Mind you, this isn't a controlled route - we'll be on the fly, having to obey (most) traffic laws, etc...

    So when are you going to give me that bench seat???:Brow:

    You should be able to get within a few blocks and smell the Buicks. I'm not sure how close to Chris you'll have to be to smell him though.:puzzled:

    You will be able to find it, I believe Meeker goes right through the middle of the show. my cell is 206.334.5220 and I will be there before 7 helping with parking if you get lost.

    I was in CA the last couple of days with no internet access, sorry for the delay in answering.

    Here's last year's Everett route map. We did this in under 2hr 40mn, which would have extrapolated out to 14.25 miles:

    Considering that the marathoners were doing 16.4 miles in the same amount of time, I have no problem with that!

    Maybe we'll have to bring you on the team when we do one of the races later in the season - we're always up for company along the route!:TU:

    My suggestion for getting to the show:

    You'll see Highway 512 on your maps. Those coming from the north on Highway 167 will want to follow the "Puyallup" signs and get onto Highway 512.

    Those coming from Interstate 5 will find it easiest to take Exit 127 in south Tacoma. You will head east toward Puyallup on Highway 512.

    From Highway 512 (regardless of the direction you're traveling), you should take the Pioneer Ave. exit. This is just a few blocks east of downtown Puyallup.

    On Pioneer Ave., head west toward the city center. Turn right onto 3rd Street at the traffic signal. Travel a couple of short blocks north on 3rd Street. The entrance to the Buick show will be to the left at E. Main Street. If you cross the railroad tracks, you've gone too far.

    This route will minimize your need to figure out the one-way streets or blockaded streets for the street fair.

    I'll have my cell on as well: 253-678-4244

    Good directions. It is easy to find.

    Just follow the trail of Buicks - you can't miss it.

    I will be there as well - it is one of the best shows. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    ...and speaking of the weather...Can I assume the show goes on rain or shine? Given the fact that we live in western WA and the only thing that you can count on, is that you can't count on the weather.
