No I sure have not, I don't even know where those roads are. I'm not an organic Northwesterner.  I've only been out here about 8 yrs and still learning some of the other ways around stuff.

It's all about the "Corvette Road".   Here's what I pulled up when I specified "avoid highways".   Wouldn't be good for the Oly, Montesano and Seabeck contingents.

Avoid Highway Directions



Might I also humbly suggest Anthony's Home Port?  Used to go to the Des Moines one all the time and it was great.  Apparently, the original one is in Kirkland.  Looking at Mapquest, Des Moines wouldn't be much farther than Kirkland.

Most of the great places I know are around Lake Union and Shilshole, meaning we'd have to brave the Seattle traffic.

There is an awesome Thai place in SeaTac (the city - not the airport [Beeatch!!]) - Bai Tong.

If you are coming up hwy 18 take the Issaquah Hobart exit. Turn left. It will take you right into Issaquah and save about 10 miles by going clear out to I-90.

Yes it is off of 18. In fact its before you even go up the hill towards Cougar Mt. I bet it would save maybe even 20 miles. Its called the Issaquah/Hobart rd. Hobart to the right, Issaquah to the left.
 
Now for anybody coming from the south and want to avoid Seattle, hwy 18 is light years faster.

i was just checking out the issaquah/hobart road on streets and maps, the name changes to "FRONT STREET N" 
and then to "E Lake sammamish Parkway SE"  which at the intersection of SE 56th Street (also known as NW SAMMAMISH ROAD)  you would make a left turn which should take you damn near right in front of the motel 6...
that be me route captain.

Well as of today I have that saturday off.  Planning on leaving Montesano around noonish, olympia area around 1ish, then up I-5 to 18 18 to Issaquah/horbart rd then motel notel.  ETA in Motel, 3pm.  Mark where do you want to meet up at?  Maybe if the southerners are traveling up I-5 we could meet them and then we could all run up the interstate from olympia together, some one make the plans, have not heard from the guy i know in issaquah about dinner. play it by ear.

here is a reply from my guy in issaquah:
What is wrong with Jack n the Box? I take Rose there each year for her birthday and our anniversary. It's a great place!
     Here is a list of four restaurants that have good food and reasonable prices. I don't think that any take reservations. At each place you should be able to seat your group of 12 to 16 together.
Gaslamp Bar & Grill: 392-4547. Driving instructions: From the motel, you get on SR 900 going south, cross I-90, at the second stop light turn left onto Maple Street, go about 100 yards, turn left into the dirt parking lot. This is a sports bar with good food and a lot of atmosphere.
Issaquah Cafe: 391-9690. Driving instructions: From the motel, get on SR 900 going south, cross I-90, as you cross I-90 get in the left hand lane, turn left at the first stop light on to Gilman Blvd.,go about 40 yards and turn left into the shopping mall, take a left in the mall lot. The cafe is in the building on the right. It has good American food.
Cascade Garden (Chinese): 391-9597. Driving instructions: It is located two doors from the Issaquah Cafe. Has very good Chinese food.
Las Margaritas: 392-7425. Driving instructions: From the motel, get on SR 900 going south, cross I-90, as you cross I-90 get in the left hand lane, turn left at the first stop light on to Gilman Blvd., Continue along Gilman until you reach Front Street, turn right onto Front Street going south, continue until the first stop light, Las Margaritas is on the right about 20 yards before the stop light.
     We will try to stop at the car show. If you need any thing give me a call

Larry, I will talk to ya!
The sad news is its looks like I will NOT make this event this year. (Would have been my 1st).
Man I wish this would have worked but its sure looking slim. I still have some hope...but not much.
So dont save me a seat for dinner....
 
If I can somehow, someway get there I will.
You all have a great time!

Dinner sounds great for us. Noon at Burgerville is great. Any route we take is fine. 12 looks like a great scenic route. and did some say there is closer on I5 or 405 near seattle. We will have to see how it goes. Both the wife and I will have to stop after about an hour to get out and stretch (My Back Her Knee). I Don't want to let this effect others. we can start out together and when we need to stop we will stop. looking forward to the trip
