FurIdaho - March 23-25, 2012

Hotel - http://furidaho.com/attending/hotel

This is a new convention!

I kinda spur-of-the moment decided I want to hit this con. I really need to find a room to share. If I don't find one, I'll probably drive there anyway with my fingers crossed. :P

I feel bad... it's really close to me, but I don't think I'll have the money for the con  x_x

I did book a hotel room in the main building with two beds. I should be checking in by 8:00 pm Friday and checking out before 12:00 pm Sunday. If you are interested in sharing the room, pm me. For a quicker reply, check Furtopia IRC after 5:00 pm mountain time or message me on my Facebook www.facebook.com/grizztofgrunwald

On the way to the corner store, Evauk was like, "May as well hang upside down from a tree."

Good news: No car issues, only 30 minutes of navigational errors on the way to Boise. I found a few furs to share my room with. Lots of nice people. A lot of great moments.

Guesstimates are 70-120 people. Every moment I'm hanging with other furries I'm having fun.

This is so awesome!  Say, did you just meet these people at the con or did you know them before?

See, now that makes me sad I couldn't go. I live in Nevada, and that's not too far from Idaho. It's a bit of a drive from where I am, but much closer than Anthrocon. So sad I can't go to a con yet. :'(

I knew or recognized a lot of furs through Facebook. I chatted or tagged along with them a lot. Also, I ended up sharing my room with some friends of a fb friend. Besides them being fun to hang out with, I got to meet even more new people through them. Today is basically over and tomorrow is going to mostly be a bummer - I have to leave before the con is actually over, I have a ten-hour drive ahead of me, and only a few panels interest me. Hopefully Something fun comes up so I can leave on a high note. I feel ther spectre of PCD waiting for me. :(

There have been some great highs and a fair number of disappointments during this con. Hopefully my experience at FurIdaho will help when I go to Califur in just under ten weeks - despite the inherent differences between the cons.

Furryglowstick, I was thinking of you when I stepped into the dances. There were a couple of serious glowstringers - one was in his suit. Yama (rabbit, bunny, hare - don't know which he is for sure).

Oh man... and now I know that there will be ANOTHER con in California. That's even closer, and I can't go! >:( Darn. Someday, VICTORY SHALL BE MINE!!!

Also, cool some furry glowstringers. I can barely string without hitting my head... or....that....other...place...a guy.... doesn't want to be....hit in... :o ya. It hurts from time to time. I only know three moves, other than some basic wrap. But someday, I'll be stringing at a con, maybe in suit, maybe not. First thing's first, though. I NEED TO GET MYSELF TO A CON! Darn my teenage self! >:(

I heard they ended up breaking 250 attendees! o.o I never would have guessed that. Maybe it was a room party con or something.

I have no idea who this was, but we walked by this suiter Friday night while the furry was waiting to be let in a room. This furry was playful, friendly, and funny - an example of what I love to see in a fursuiter.




I ended up leaving on a high note on Sunday afternoon. Got a bunch of hugs and skidaddled. Considering I only knew people through the internet - and none of them amazingly well - I was really pleased with how open and friendly most people were with me.
