FCN, very briefly
Made it back from Furry Connection North in one piece.  The trip to the con was trouble free.  The con was great fun and if there were any disasters they didn't happen to me.  Really impressive tech system at the dances -- amazing laser light show, and speakers that sounded good pumping out rave-level sound.  Watched the dance competition, and really enjoyed it.  I've never been very into dance; watching this made me feel like I've been missing something.  Carried the camera around almost the entire weekend and took around a thousand pictures.  We finally got on the road around 3 today, after lingering over lunch.  The trip home was not quite so trouble free.  First, I caught a rock to the windshield that left a crack, it is small but it will grow, I suspect I'm going to need a new windshield.  Then shortly before the Indiana border, suddenly started getting a lot of noise from the left front wheel well.  The lining of the wheel well, which was pretty torn up, had come loose and was flapping around.  Managed to get it to stop making awful noises, with the help of some duct tape, but I will have to have it looked at to see how it should be repaired in a more lasting, but hopefully not terribly expensive, way.

Yup. And if you have insurance on your car, the insurer will frequently pay 100% for the crack repair.

If not, it's still fairly cheap. As long as the ding isn't right in the middle of the field of view, the repairs are pretty good. I've been driving with a repaired windshield for years.

What they said about the glass... the crack-fixing places do a really good job, frequently free under insurance and _way_ cheaper than a new windshield even if crack-repair isn't covered by your insurance.

We missed you this weekend, but I am glad you had fun...
