    $\begingroup$ I found the "all five vowels in 7 letters" clue a total giveaway and the other ones too vague to be useful, though "Pacific Northwest" gave confirmation when I Googled it with the answer.

    $\begingroup$ @wildBillMunson I haven't and neither have most people here. Nor did Google turn up anything. So, it's too obscure as a clue. $\endgroup$ – xnor Dec 5 '14 at 7:17
