That's me up on his head. I climbed up on top the giant Fremont Troll who lives under the Fremont Bridge in Seattle, Washington.
The story of our journey to reach the troll involves Uber car service, a very sweet old lady who has no business being a professional driver in Seattle, and a 15 minute drive that took us an hour and 20 minutes due to traffic... And our kindhearted tour guide, who wanted to show us everything there was to see along the way as she navigated the slowest possible route to our destination.
Not only did we choose DIY driving service Uber in the Fremont neighborhood, we also went with DIY hotel alternative Air BnB, since it had been so good to us renting the house in Hood River, Oregon.
So this place was...fine. I mean the bed was a pull out couch bed, I knew that from the pictures. What I didn't know was that unlike the 20+ pull out couch-beds that I had experienced previously in my lifetime, this one happened to be about six inches too short for a fully grown adult human. And my legs from below the knee down had to choose between curl up or dangle over the edge.
The saving grace, complementary beer in the fridge! Not just any beer, good beer, craft beer. Ah yeah, let's get drunk and forget we're sleeping on a doggy bed.
The beer, Fremont Interurban IPA. Awesome, we were given the gift of very appropriately named local flavor. Very drinkable, the Interurban was more refreshing and thirst quenching than most IPAs. It's alcohol level is high enough to get you buzzed quick, but not so ridiculous that you have to slow sip it like a scotch.
ABV - 6.2%
Fremont brewery is the coolest thing in Fremont...well besides the troll.
