Anthrocon Day 1

Had breakfast with marauderosu and joeygatorman at the Steel City Diner less than a block from the hotel. The convention hadn't started yet but there was already a sizeable crowd in the hotel lobby. Hung around there for a while. Took some photos of the fursuiters and their antics and I'll be collecting those in my Anthrocon 2008 photoset on Flickr as I go along.


Then I took a walk out in downtown Pittsburgh to bag some geocaches. Two of the geocaches, Dante's Subterranean Homesick Cache and Man, Beast and Bird, were in the museum area. The other two, Mini Tribute and A Slight Inclination for the Bridge to No-where, were near the waterfront, one near each end of the Westernmost yellow bridge. That last one took a significant amount of time to find and I got a bit dirty in the process. However, that was strictly because I had the wrong idea at first of the type of hide and it really wasn't as hard as its 4-star difficulty rating implied.

I wanted noodles so I got a quick lunch at Golden Palace on my way back to the hotel. Got back to the hotel and saw that con registration had already started. (A little earlier this year than last year.) Picked up my badge and headed up to my room to wash up because I had gotten rather grimy looking for geocaches in Pittsburgh.
