Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel

I spent the weekend attending Chattacon 39, which takes place every year in Chattanooga Tennessee at the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel. The hotel used to be the main train station in the city and when it was shut down, it was converted into a hotel. They have preserved some of the old trains and the main station building and some of the platforms.

My pictures are online at this photo set on Flickr.

Fire Spinning at Chattacon 39

Highlights from the fire spinning show at Chattacon 39. This show is doubly impressive when you realize the temperature was under 20 degrees Fahrenheit at the time of the show!
