How do you stop a crowd and gather them in the rain ? It’s easy just pull in two Liberty Walk wild rides. I knew that JJ’s cars were at Phantasy Kolors and I knew they were coming to be in the booth , but I didn’t know I would get to see JJ today. I love this guy, one the nicest most humble guys you’ll ever meet.

Everyone from the east, south and Midwest all love the Pacific Northwest because our weather is so mild. Its true, we rarely get below 40 in winter and really get above 85 degrees in the summer. But we do get rain. It rains in Seattle, we say rains but if you were from the south or east or Midwest you would say it drizzles here consonantly. But we only average 38inches of rain a year. Miami Florida gets 58 inches a year, New York 39 inches a year and Omaha gets 27 inches.

With rain on and off droves of folks flocked to XXX Rootbeer for Importmeet annual meet. Being the first large meet of the year means there will be a ton folks. Last year I would say 5,000 easy with the sunny weather.
