Canada.Ontario.TriCities
« on: September 29, 2018, 05:56:29 PM »
New to the forum. Search functionality blew up, so starting a thread. If there's one already, please let me know and I'll delete this.

Until then -- anybody in Cambridge who wants to grab a beer and help accelerate my learning? I'm going through all blog posts, currently starting 2015.

42 views but no replies. That's either a lot of bots/crawlers, or... Y'all are snobs. C'mon tri-city mustachians, sound off!

I'm not in Cambridge often, but if you find yourself with a reason to be in KW, I'm around. If that reason is at lunchtime I can even get you in to free lunch at my workplace ;)

Another K-W'enite here and signed up to the forum to answer this post -though I've read every MMM article at least once by now! Search worked for me and it seems there are a few locals. It would be nice to meet some, as I'm usually surrounded by oversized pickup truck commuter-vehicles and the sound/stench of gas-powered lawncare machines in this part of Kitchener :)

I'll see if I can edit the title to TriCities instead.

Have finally finished all blogs. Took me months. Makes me cry because I found this immediately AFTER buying a pickup. >>>sigh<<< I bought a poop-hole of a house and knew I would strip it bare, so a bare-bones pickup with long box made sense to me. I lucked into a vehicle 8 years old with 24k on the clock, and bought. Renovation has made excellent use of it, but I can accept that a car with trailer might have done as well or better. Especially because I commute into Mississauga. Yes, I am a clown. But at least I *know* it! Once the reno is complete I'll dump the truck. I bought the bike and trailer but haven't used them.

Every night after work, every weekend, I spend sawing and nailing and screwing driving screws and lifting things. The house is tiny by most standards, but I can easily afford it, so I can start saving for retirement. I stick to the speed limit now because that saves mucho gas -- and reduces stress remarkably. I haven't spent time searching for a job in Cambridge yet, but that might start once my insulation gets sprayed in. Oh -- the plan is to install radiant heat via tankless water heater. ;)

Okay, enough blah blah blah from me. Beers? Is there any kinda local organizing, perhaps through meetup dot com or other venue?
