Sorry to have missed! Family matters call. Anyone want to share a synopsis? Was another planned?
I came a bit late so not sure what I missed at the beginning, but the conversations ranged all over the place. It was a beautiful day, great temperature, and we sat under partial tree shade at a picnic table with other families etc. around. Lots of talk about our histories, how we found MMM etc., jobs, what part of Toronto/GTA we live in. A fair bit of talk about investments (as you can see from the links from slsdly), dividends-only vs. regular 4% withdrawal, points cards and bank fees, things like that. My ebike link came from a brief discussion about those mostly down at one end of the table. A bit of talk about what parts of the forum we mostly follow (the anti-mustachian shame kind of threads were popular). A question of 'do you talk about mustachianism with others' was met with mostly pretty quick No's. Several of the group were "tech" people and we talked about that lifestyle, working from home, etc.
I'm sure I've forgotten many of the topics, but I'm sure you get the idea. I didn't hear any talk of another meetup. It's a bit far for me to come very often, but I'd come when I could. There were twelve of us by the end, I think; I'm sure there are many more 'lurkers' around who might come to other meetups.
I have to say, as much as reading and posting on the forum helps connect with kindred spirits, meeting up in real life was really enjoyable, and of course makes it so much easier to get more depth behind people's stories. I was very impressed by everyone in the group -- as you'd expect, a group of people who are taking control of their lives, with good heads on their shoulders and great attitudes.
