I'm a Seattle burner, but I also find the local gatherings difficult to fit into my schedule. Seattle has shitloads of burners but over the years most of my local network has slowly dropped out of BM. Most of my off-playa burners are in the Portland area these days... Eplaya pretty much fills in my off-playa burner interaction other than that.
