Missed the Frances Farmer walking tour? Special encore planned

Following our story about Wednesday night’s Admiral District walking tour focusing on “The Life and Times of Frances Farmer,” the brilliant, beautiful, and tragic West Seattle-raised movie star, several commenters voiced regrets they’d missed it. Guess what – there’s going to be an encore! With a catch: It’s exclusively for participants in West Seattle In Motion, the walking/biking/transit/etc. initiative for which WSB is the media sponsor this year. Whether you are already a member, or sign up now, as long as you log your trips through WS In Motion next week (August 21st-27th), you’ll be entered into a drawing for one of the 30 spots on a special Museum of History and Industry-presented encore tour the evening of September 7th, guided again by “MOHAI Minute” video-series co-host Peder Nelson (left). Not signed up yet? You can do it from our WS In Motion page (where you can also check out the latest progress reports on the “savings” West Seattleites are scoring as part of the program). P.S. Other special deals/offers for West Seattle In Motion participants continue – including a discount on special activities as part of the August 27th Duwamish River Festival, and a discount this week at Cycle U.

    Is there some link missing from this story? I tried the links provided and found no membership application or information about membership costs. From what I’ve heard about the program, it’s designed to reward car owners who agree to drive less, but not people who don’t own or drive cars.

    yeah- that’s what I thought last year when I did it.
    if you already primarily bus, bike or walk to work, you don’t really get to participate cause it is mostly to reward car drivers that eliminate some of their car trips.

    Regardless, Peder Nelson ROCKS big time. Thank you, Peder.

    That’s not my understanding of the program. I’m signed up for it. We signed up for the “One Less Car Challenge” and got rid of one of our cars a couple of years ago. That’s different. This is just replacing what would be a car trip with walking, carpooling, biking, or transit. It’s a pretty cool program, actually.

    Sam-c is right, it is to reward car owners for reducing their trips via alternative transportation. I joined to get the bus passes but can’t honestly log my trips as I don’t own a car.

Sorry, comment time is over.
