    Issaquah, WA April 7, SUNDAY at the Triple-X Rootbeer drive-in.

    We had about a dozen vehicles there today and NOT A DROP of rain! National Weather Service (ha!) called for 80% chance of rain. Thanks to all who showed up. See you there, next year. Jim

    Issaquah, WA April 7, SUNDAY at the Triple-X Rootbeer drive-in.

    Actually, the microclimatology map from the University of Washington Atmospheric Sciences Department now shows no precipitation AT ALL after about 8am in Issaquah, where the event is. Woo hooooo! See you tomorrow. Jim

    Issaquah, WA April 7, SUNDAY at the Triple-X Rootbeer drive-in.

    UPDATE: We are 'GO for liftoff"! The weather is straightening up, finally. It won't likely be sunny, but it doesn't look like the gully-washer, anymore. See you there. Jim

    Issaquah, WA April 7, SUNDAY at the Triple-X Rootbeer drive-in.

    UPDATE: Now looking very, very wet indeed. Let's see a show of hands for who is planning on coming. If the Sunday weather forecast looks really bad on Saturday night, it might make sense to cancel the event. Please reply here or on PM. Jim

    Issaquah, WA April 7, SUNDAY at the Triple-X Rootbeer drive-in.

    Ok, 4 days to go and it's looking wet, but not a gully-washer, by any means. They're calling for showers off and on, but it's pretty early to really know. It does NOT look like last year's show, which rained sideways. Even then, it was fun. We turned it into a social event. Bring some pop-up...

    Zombi Fest in Burien, WA Looking for some mil rigs to display. Read on...

    http://zombiefestnorthwest.com/ Saturday, Sept. 15 in Burien, WA. Put on by the City of Normandy Park. It is billed as a zombie event (not really my thing), but that's just a ruse to get young people out to a preparedness expo to learn about disaster preparedness...

    Puyallup, WA Washington Arms Collectors Gun Show display Oct 13, 2018 Saturday only.

    This will be about the nineteenth year that we have put on this display at WAC. Always lots of fun, even if it rains. We've never been rained out but we have been rained on, some. As in the past, we will have some money to help pay fuel expenses for getting vehicles to the show...

    April 8, 2018 Triple-X drive-in. Issaquah, WA

    Well, we have now seen the worst weather possible for a mil vehicle show. It just doesn't get any worse than this. However, we did have a great time. It actually turned into a people event instead of a vehicle event. We had 12-13 military vehicles, about 6 restored police...
