I'm really interested in applying for this job but it would mean a commute of around 1 hour and 45 minutes one way each day (by reliable public transportation). I live in the suburbs so I am used to taking the underground everywhere and to it being a minimum of an hour before getting to where I want to go (but I don't do this on a daily basis). I'm worried almost 4 hours total of public transportation a day might be pushing it. [more inside]

I'm thru-hiking a section of the PCT with a friend, and I'm supposed to meet her at the trail near Snoqualmie Pass.

Are there any experienced northwest car-less hikers who have done this before?

I'm planning on traveling to Chicago from NYC for the first time in April, and I'm trying to find a place to stay (right now, via Airbnb).
