I want to jump on the Dallas bandwagon. My wife and I live in Oak Cliff and are open to meeting everyone if an event should happen again.

I used to live in Dallas and still have family and friends in the area; I'm a couple of hours south now. I would be willing and able to make a short pilgrimage for a meetup if one happens.

We are in Dallas (East Dallas) - definitely interested in a meet up. I also have a meetup.com account.

I am in Burleson (South FW), but would be willing to drive to meet up with fellow Mustachians. I have been reading this blog for over a year and finally registered today. I found it via Raptitude.

Carrollton here.

I'm interested in future meet-ups as well. Sounds like the first one was a good time.

I'm in DFW area as well, Richardson to be exact. Looks like there are more than several of us here in Dallas. Please include me on the list for next meetup.

I figure if no one starts setting a date, it'll never happen. So let's do this!

What are your thoughts on May 30th or June 6th? Hopefully at least with a Saturday (or Sunday), we can avoid the monstrous traffic during the week. No matter where we meet up, a few people will be driving pretty far.

Options:
  • Pot luck picnic for lunch or dinner
  • Meet up at a restaurant with a patio
  • Food truck park - Klyde Warren, Dallas Arts District, or Truck Yard
  • Unidentified option D?
And a journal because I #REF occasionally

I believe both those dates are wide open for me, not sure if my wife would be interested in meeting a bunch of other folks interested in FIRE, but you never know. Perhaps we could meet up at Mike Lewis Park or somewhere similar (midway between Dallas and Ft. Worth).

So pot luck in Mike Lewis Park in Grand Prairie. Dates are still open for either on May 30 or June 6.

Lunch, late lunch, or dinner? Obviously it'll be getting hot, but since we're in Texas that's a given. Do they have covered picnic tables?

Maybe it's too late but I'd like to vote for Reverchon Park, it's just off the Katy trail, close to Victory station and the green, orange, and TRE lines, it has lots of shade and tables, covered playground. If not this time, maybe the next meetup.

Does Reverchon have parking for those who can't take the DART/TRE?

Sounds like June 6th is our winning date!

Yes, both a few spots at the ball-field and plenty of street parking along the two cross streets.  I tried to go down there to check out parking along the Katy Trail, but haven't run it yet.

Yes, there are a few spots by the playground/tables, a long drive that people park along, and then quite a few spots behind the baseball diamond. I've never driven, and I've typically always gone on Saturday morning with the kids by bike, and it's not been crowded, but I can't say what it's like at other times on Saturdays.

Dallas Meetup:

Date: Saturday, June 6
Location: Mike Lewis Park or Reverchon Park
Time: 1 pm (unless someone wants to vote differently)

I personally vote for Reverchon, but that's because it's closer to me and I like the riding the DART option.

How does everyone else vote on location and time?

Time: perfect
Date: should be good
Location: I vote Reverchon, but would be fine with Mike Lewis if that means more ppl can come

On a side note, Uptown Ciclovia is tomorrow, May 17th. This would be a great event to have a meetup for next year. I don't think I'll actually make it to this years between DW's schedule and the weather.

Hi everyone - I live in Mesquite and would love to attend a meet-up. Mike Lewis park on 6/6 at 1pm seems OK to me.

So sounds like Mike Lewis at least for next Saturday. Obviously we need to bump this up...

Dallas Meetup:

Date: Saturday, June 6
Location: Mike Lewis Park
Time: 1 pm

Anyone more familiar with Mike Lewis Park want to set up a meeting place? We could technically run around yelling "Mustache!" in a Marco Polo type game but it's probably not very efficient.

Do we want to coordinate hamburger stuff for grilling? Or just bring food?

If the rain keeps up, we can float over to a nearby restaurant.

I'll be there. I've only been a couple times, but I know that there are some picnic tables near the back by the sand volleyball courts; I'll bring a ball and maybe a frisbee if I can find them. I plan on bringing a small cooler with adult beverages as well. As far as bbq vs. BYOF, I'm strongly averse to grilling on those built-ins that parks have, and my car won't fit my Weber, so I'll either eat before or bring some food.

Sounds good. Everyone bring food then.

Aim in the general direction of the picnic tables by the sand volleyball court.

There is parking back there too. I'll have a cooler with ice in it if anybody wants to bring beverages straight from the store and store them while we're out there. Wife will join me if we finish food prep by 12:30.

Was really looking forward to this, but I can't make it after all. Been trying to plan a trip down to Big Bend National Park for camping and biking, and this weekend (5th thru 7th) is the only one my buddies and I are able to coordinate.

Have fun, all! I'll see you at the next one. Hopefully there will be another meetup soon. Maybe there could be a mountain bike meetup at one of the many trails around Dallas?

Hopefully we can plan another one too! Maybe for July or August? We could make a bi-monthly meet-up or something!
