    Hello everyone,

    As the topic might suggest, I’m new to both MNFurs and relatively new to the fandom altogether. I’ve always liked all things anthro, but I didn’t know there was a name for it or an actual following til I read some hateful comments on a YouTube video. Kinda backfired on the haters, fun when that happens.


    Anywho, I was directed to MNFurs by a very generous friend. I told her about my interests, and she thought that was just marvelous. She brought FurMigration to my attention and encouraged me to go. I agreed to just dive in head-first, because that’s kind of how I am with new things. I had also been encouraged by others to strap on some ears and a tail and go – see if it’s my kind of scene or not.


    Well, shortly after I had made that decision, I lost my job as an engineer. This friend knew I had planned to practically live off saltines and water so I could spend every penny on furry gear so I could go to the event as full-out as possible, but suddenly my financial priorities had shifted, as you can understand.


    But this friend and I were in agreement that the most important thing in life is to have fun, and have good experiences. So she bought me everything I needed to get started and go to the event no matter what. That’s a true friend, right there.


    So I owe it to her to be as prepared as possible for the event by September; normally, I’d just wing it, but winging it doesn’t always go my way so I owe it to her to approach this whole thing as informed as possible. I figured I’d go directly to the source for that, and that’s what brings me here.


    I know, I’m wordy, but thanks for reading. My heart is just full to bursting from said unexpected act of generosity, so much so I wish I could tell the whole world. Just seems like an excellent note on which to get things started.
