Howdy all! New to all of this, so i apologize in advance if I screw it up.
I've got a ton of questions I'll pose in another thread (if I can't find the answer by searching). But for now, I'm Renny. Or pre-Renny (since I won't have a legit fursuit for a few months).
So about me - live in Prescott, been here for a while now - about 15 years. I'm an older millenial who needs to become way more sociable and loosen up, and I'm hoping this is a good way for me to do that. I'm going to spend the next few months getting in shape and practicing some dance moves so I can rock a fursuit (or make a complete fool out of myself trying).
I enjoy hiking, disc golf, photography, movies, video games (Xbox), board games, pool, darts, and other non-athletic athletic events (no offense to expert dart/pool players). I might also develop a taste for archery - need to ponder that some more. I'm not good at anything, but I like to try... :)
I'm happy to travel around to events in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and possibly Tucson. I have an elder four-legged friend who is not doing so well, so I'm trying to cut back on overnight travel until the situation changes.
Planning to be at the bowling event next Saturday (probably not in a suit - we'll see). Hoping to attend the con in November. Would like to be an active member, so if you've got informal hangouts or formal events that I can join, please let me know. And if I can lend a hand (or paw) with planning/logistics/whatever, I'd be pleased to. I'm a pretty laid-back and drama-free person. I've got enough crap going on (work full time, student full time, etc.) that this is going to be my fun outlet.
Will be more than happy to try and host events up here next summer if any of you furs want to get out of the Phoenix (or Tucson) heat.
My stupid dream is to learn to ride a motorcycle, get a realistic fursuit from Clockwork, and ride around while wearing it. Wanna get a smile on people's faces. Of course, having never worn a fursuit head before, I have no idea if the visibility in those is sufficient to pull that off (and I probably need to check the DMV regs too). Also think it would be a blast to head up to Snowbowl in the winter and sled or snowboard down in a full or partial suit. I'm hoping someone here does that... :) Oh, and I want to be in a furry music video - not the star, just in the background, doing my stupid thing... :)
So that's about it for me. Gotta go take a midterm exam for school and study for a cert test for work tonight. Be down in Phoenix tomorrow and/or Sunday, and looking forward to meeting some of you at the bowling event next weekend.
