Doing Research. Finding AWESOME Information

I have been feeling intuitively that the famous Seattle Underground tour covers only a very small part of what's left of the old labyrinth system of underground city sidewalks from previous centuries. I'm writing about such in my novel but it's very difficult to find verifiable information (beyond what I can see in my head and feel in my gut).

Meanwhile, I found a most entertaining post on this topic, written by a very talented writer. I hope you take time to read it (if you're interested in homeless, and the idea they've made a home out of the rain by living underground, as I "get" they really do).

Great read...I'll be checking the gratings in the sidewalk on Columbia Street next time I'm near there. Hmmmm.....

Breath-e ~ What I "get" (intuitively) is that there ARE access points through PRIVATE basements into the "condemned" part of Seattle's underground. I also "get" that a few homeless have found respite there but they keep it very hush-hush and few others know about it.

Panademona ~ It's actually rather fun. I've gone on the very commercialized "Seattle Underground" tour before and it was interesting. Meanwhile ... what I get intuitively and all the "unkowns" are actually even MORE fascinating!
