Midwest FurFest Post-mortem 2017

Let's get the bad out of the way.
Actually getting to the con was quite a bit of a nightmare. Once we got off the bus to Chicago early in Thursday, my wife had her pockets pilfered of her wallet, and we needed to spend a night in @mikejmurdock's hotel room. With the pickpocketing still in our thoughts, we slept like crap until checkout, took a Lyft to the Hyatt hotel space (where MFF was held). More on this later.
Our designated hotel space for 4 jammed 10 people for Friday and Saturday night to save money. I slept on an air mattress with my wife. That did not do me many favors.
Con stuff. Con stuff.
After a critical error in scheduling the bus arrival and departure days, we had to spend an additional day in Chicago, wiping out all the commission money I made all weekend for the hotel.
And my god, I couldn't sleep on that bus anyway.

The good stuff:
I want to do Midwest Fur Fest itself all over again. Spaz and Sakura had a blast of a time and after doing Artist's Alley all three days, I got to run a couple games of BattleTech (Quick-Start for our newbros and the full expanded rules after). I met all kinds of new people over the weekend, and I learned a shitload of lessons for how to present myself in Artist's Alley better; I only got some of the commissions I did because I have a specific skillset that the majority of furry artists lack. A lot of you know which skillset that is.
Sakura released Day 1 of the con on YouTube that I think you guys should check out:

From empirical experience, I've found that six is the comfortable maximum. Seven is pushing it, especially if your head is jammed under the four-footed bedside table (it happened to me!). And nine is right out. >_>

I felt bad for my original roommate who slept on a life-raft!!

I've heard of some IB fans having a dinner in a cruise ship, but that's just ridiculous!
