I have never been and one of my best friends is currently residing on Whidbey Island for the winter months and so it's a great opportunity to go. If anybody has any recommendations of what to see, where to eat, etc let me know ;o) I did a survey on cars thru Schlesingers and they paid me almost $200 and gave me a free flip like video camera and all I had to do was answer about 10 questions and upload the videos to their site. Pretty freaking rad! Sorry Chicago, it was a tie between you and Seattle and since I grew up there I figure I should try something new. Dec 3rd woop woop..
