Spokane Or Coeur d' Alene Anyone? Is Anybody Out There?? :)

by TotalKonfuzion / July 1, 2008 5:52 AM PDT

Hey all,

Long time BOL listener. Just decided to come see if anyone around the North Idaho/Eastern Washington area would be interested in some kind of BOL meet up at some point in the not too distant future.

There's definitely a shortage of T.I.Ts (Technically Inclined Types) up here in north Idaho but we do exist. I'm sure there are plenty of you guys and girls in Spokane though...hopefully. It be kinda sweet to combine our power of nerdiness and use it to infiltrate a local bar or restaurant.

We could then make plans to take over the world, etc...while indulging in alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages.

Anyone is welcome to respond, as long as your of legal age (or at least look it and possess a very professionally photo-shopped ID) and of course you can't be REALLY crazy. Crazy is okay, but no knife yielding, etc...(which is typical in Idaho).

Thanks for reading! Contact me at if or just respond to this thread if you're interested in a meet up! Happy

That is so weird!

I just set up the Houston meet last weekend... but I'm originally from Spokane! Lived there almost my whole live until I moved to Houston 4 years ago. I went to Ferris High School.

Good luck finding Buzzers in that area... I had a lot of fun at my meet up here. =)

Right On!

Hey! I'm originally from Boston and moved into Coeur d' Alene about 5 years ago. Have worked in Spokane and visit there frequently. Being from the area then I'm sure you got all my "good ole" Idaho humor (applies to many places in WA as well) in my post, LoL Happy

I'll keep searching for Buzzers out here. The search will not cease. I mean...there have got to be nerds amongst all the tractors and fields out here! =)

Spokane is so... uh, special.

Did you know the Penny Arcade guys are from Spokane? It's true! They probably left before they were knifed by anyone.

But yeah, I used to live up on the south hill... before I moved to Texas. The last time I heard about Spokane it was on 'Dateline' or something because they were doing a story about a rapist that lived here. Ohhhhh, Spokane.

Spokane....oh boy

Yeah...and Coeur d' Alene is growing so fast I expect the knifes to come out soon here as well. At least we still have the woods to run into if the blank hits the fan, LoL. It's not a bad area overall, especially considering I come from the northeast...I'm not sure how dirty Spokane was when you left but it's pretty darn dirty now. I bet Houston is just scorching though...that must have been quite the change for you.

Spokane was always dirty.

Houston was a bit more humid... but there's so much to do and see. When I visited Spokane a couple years back, all my favorite haunts had closed. I wanted to head up to Silverwood, but it was the wrong time of year. Silverwood is like the last gem of my childhood.
