Launching Pad in Wilmington

Good evening everyone out there,

The other day I went back to my hometown of Wilmington to do a few things around my mother's house. I have driven past one of my favorite restaurants of all time more than I can count, and have always wanted to stop and take a few pictures. The old Gemini Giant, has stood guard on the edge of Wilmington for longer than I can remember. I had to stop and take a few pictures, because there is a chance that it may not be there for very much longer. I've had too many good memories there, and now I finally got my pictures. Here are a just a few. Nikki did some affects to them, and can't wait to get the rest of them done as well. Here you go for now, enjoy!

I've been to the start of old Route 66 in downtown Chicago, and have always wanted to drive the length of the old great highway. Who knows how much longer roadside oddities like the Giant will be there. Maybe one day I can highjack Nikki and Gwen and turn left on old route 66, and see where it takes us. Better hurry, the world is slowly taking back place like The Launching Pad, and before we know it, it will only be left to us in photos.

Sorry to get so heavy, deep and real on you, but I just wanted to get this off my chest.

Like always, keep that shutter moving!

Joe and Nikki
