Ravenna's current inventory and sales to date for the 2010.


Homes for sale in Ravenna, a Seattle neighborhood.

The Ravenna neighborhood is just north of the University of Washington campus but is separated from the campus and campus housing by a deep ravine. Only one bridge crosses the ravine between 15th and 25th Aves NE, and that is for bike and foot traffic only. This makes for limited north south car traffic thourgh this desireable neighborhood.

I live in Ravenna and watch the market here closely. A few of the homes still on the market were originally over-priced, and have been reduced but seem to be forgotten by buyers and brokers because of their long market time. For a selection of these homes please send me an email and I'll pull them out for you. There are good deals to be had by the dilligent.

Crap. I just properly read the brief.Illegal sagvale. You and a few of mates doing a reverse Lewis and Clarke. Now Lewis and Clerk weren’t mucking about. 7 of the 13 adventurers were soldiers packing the most sophisticated heat of the time. And they were just on a voyage of discovery. You are on an illegal sagvale mission. You will be taking high tech gear, all the best body armour, all the best night vision gear, the flashest guns and best comms available. You have over 5,000 kilometres to traverse before you reach your target and probably a very hurried 5000 km sprint back, through, past, over and under infrastructure that isn’t so much structural anymore. You will have to get yourself a convoy with fuel being the bitch. Lots of FBTs: FKN Big Trucks. I don’t suppose there will be too much in the way of serious adversaries until you are in the declared zone. Declared someone else’s zone I figure. You will have to set up refuel resupply points as you go, loosing some of your people on the way as guards for it. Prepare a base camp well out of NYC from which to safely incur and scout the town. The leave behinds will have to scavenge with the first left (last re-joined with) tasked to get sufficient horsepower together as last resort transport.Once the smaller advance party has sagvaled the goodies they retreat along the resupply line gradually getting stronger as you pick up your resupply guards, the pursuers who were only after a small bunch of bandits, are getting weaker. Win.6 ATV trucks (2 being tankers & 1 a heavy recovery vehicle) 4 lighter armoured ATV. Loaded for bear, military ordinance so there is a good chance of picking up rounds and replacements as you go. Ariel support would be good but without guvmit support I’d say any sort of portable UAV was unlikely. So: dress warmly, load up for bear, build a long secure line of retreat, take shite loads of fuel and have a plan B.
