    There is somewhere down there with free parking??? The hotel parking was $27. I ended up across the street at the convention center and paid $15. Wasn't too bad of a walk. I managed to park on the same level as the skyway that led over to the hotel.

    I stayed at the conference hotel, and for me parking was $10 per day. I could come and go from the hotel parking garage as needed and still have a spot. Not sure if the $10 daily rate held true if you didn't stay at the conference hotel.

    Didn't get a chance to meet Grimlockimus or Ragnar, but I did buy an Encore Devastator giftset from OptimistPrime.

    Dairycon also increased it's Jumpstarter hoard for the races this spring too. :D

    Anybody snag video of the script read? Saw a few filming, but nothing's ended up on youtube so far, and it gets harder to find people who filmed the more time passes.

    I think we may've met as I remember checking out somebody's Encore Devastator giftset in the Dairycon room on Friday night. Would've been cool if our online names were on our TFCon nametags.

    TFcon was a bit of a hassle on my end. First of all, the USPS lost one of the boxes that was part of a friend of mine's artist alley table. So, we did not have everything that we needed for her setup. The box finally showed up the day that we leave the hotel. Luckily, the hotel is sending it back to us. While this was going on, one of my credit cards got hacked not once but twice in one night. Luckily, my bank reissued a new card a couple days later. Due to the hassle, I was pretty limited on how much I could spend...I managed to get a MP Ramjet and a Lil'Formers commission. In all, I had a good time in Chicago.
