Thursday: Left 30th Street Station in Philadelphia by train at 12:42 PM. Like I said before; WAY better than driving. And cheaper, too! Never have I had such a relaxing ride across PA. At 8:00 PM the train arrived in Pittsburgh in the middle of the pouring rain! I managed to brave the elements during that one block walk to the Westin.
Friday: Had breakfast at Steel City Diner. First time there by the way. Saw the opening ceremonies. Bought stuff in the Dealer Room. Performed stand-up at Open mic featuring Jibba. I've always wanted to do stand-up and Anthrocon! Let's see...Anthropoly, Uncle Kage's Story Hour...Yeah, that was my Friday.
Saturday: I was playing with my digital camera and shot this shaky video-
*makes sure you didn't throw up* You okay?... Alright. Anyway, I bought more stuff in the Dealer Room. Saw the Fursuit parade. Saw Bucktown Tiger in concert. He rocked! Then I was interviewed by a couple of guys doing a documentary on different conventions. Then there was the Masquerade, 2's Rant, and the Comedy Improv.
Sunday: More stuff purchased in the Dealer Room. Saw "Memories with the Mouse" with Floyd Norman. Saw the last of the Fursuit Games. Then after the closing ceremonies I shot this other shaky video-
Monday: Took the 7:20 AM train back to Philly. At 3:20 PM took the train from 30th Street Station back to New Jersey.
In conclusion: Anthrocon was great. I can tell everyone else who went had fun. Hope to do it again next year.
