Excitement during Chicago Get Together

Discussion in 'Special Sessions, Events, and Tour Announcements' started by Rich Gibson, Jun 6, 2007.

  1. As some might recall we had a mini-Get Together last weekend in Chicago. I flew in on Friday evening 1 June and went to Frank Angileri's (Eng45ine) fire house to say hello. While Frank was giving me a cook's tour (ending with Strawberry Smoothies, by the way:biggrin:) they had two alarms. Frank asked for and got permission to invite along! What a great experience blasting through the night near Chicago with the siren blaring....every kid's dream. Here are some unprocessed shots during the two evolutions. Sorry for the OOF cabin shot..very bumpy stiff ride.





    Frank, what treat. You are the greatest host! Thanks.

  2. Great shots of Frank and his baby. Loved them Rich.
