Irbisgreif is a Cormorant-Dolphin gryphon. A gryphdelphais. He's a Phalacrocorax carbo cum Delphinus delphis gryphon, if we are precise about it. He's an author and likes weird things.

So, first I wanna describe my 'first' con a bit.
Thursday I drove up to Dallas, picked up Krest, a fur I know, at the Greyhound station, then drove over and checked into the hotel and got my badge. Went around a bit, saw some sights, got to know the layout of the con.
Friday, my pal Chazori arrived so I got them from the airport and we spent most of Friday running around, chatting with folks, checking out dealer's den, doing cool stuff, meeting people. I met JennerHawk/Cesar for the first time, which was fun, and I gambled a bit to spend some time chatting with other furs. I also got to hang out with a fur named Sakanz, who is a pretty peacock and a neat guy to chat with. I also met Jay and Kal'hona who taught me a little bit about how being a pilot could work well with being a fur.
Saturday was the intense day where I got to meet a lot of folks for the first time, especially Orzel, an awesome Tern/Lizard. He and I and Chazori had a great time. We did go to the Pokepalooza hosted by Rika, an awsome artist and great pom. We also hit up a thing called Muttcon though we didn't drink or stay too long, but I did get to meet DarkDragon, a fur Chazori knows.
Sunday early in the morning I took Chazori to the airport and bid my farewell to the wonderful birb. I spent a lot of Sunday either wandering and taking in the sights, checking out some of the last-day-deals for the dealer's den and playing a few games in the tabletop room, which had a nice, quiet aesthetic that was good for helping me decompress on the last day. I did meet up with Orzel again and hang out a bit, then did some dead-dog dancing and hung out with the guy who had been running the tabletop room.
Monday, I cleaned up my room, took Orzel to his flight home, packed up to head home, and after a nap, took Krest to the greyhound station and drove home to Houston. I got to follow a fellow fur most of the way (I could tell by the stickers on their car) but lost them when I had to gas up (was kinda sad about that, because it was nice having a reminder that yes, furries were still around despite how depleted the world seemed with the con over.)
All in all, it was fucking AMAZING.
I am gonna do these more. For certain I want to do at least 2 a year. TFF and Furry Invasion. Those are in Texas and cheap to get to. Other than those, I'm thinking of going to Anthrocon and Further Confusion, but I am not sure about those ones. I know for sure that FWA is too close to TFF so it's not gonna happen. Furcons are gonna be my main relaxation I think, because while at TFF I felt insanely free and happy. Just a great time.
