Nothing new really. The place has been for sale for at least 10 years. They've dropped the price significantly this time, but it's a pretty unique property that really doesn't have a whole lot of interested parties. I know some of the Seattle people are a little more nervous this time, but time will tell I guess.
Edit. Auction starting now. This might actually be a problem as the reserves are really low. People in the know are speculating that it will sell. If you've ever contemplated going to Packwood then you better make this the year
