I just moved to Georgetown for an internship and will be living there the next 4 months. I don't know anyone in the area, so I thought it might be nice to start by getting to know some Mustachians who could show me around! I will be cycling from Georgetown to wherever we meet, so somewhere north of downtown Lexington would be preferable :) I'd gladly make the trip further south if necessary though

Ah, so you've moved in and found a place, that's awesome.  I don't know much about the area myself as I've only recently moved here as well.  However, most weekends I usually go with a friend to the Red River Gorge for climbing, and the trails are pretty awesome as well if your more into hiking.  I also usually play board games with a friend from work during the week if your into that.  I'd also be up for checking most other things out if you have other ideas.  Either way, we should definitely meet up sometime.

I'm usually pretty busy on weekends, but I'd be down for some board games. I'll PM you my contact info. I was also thinking of trying to find a decent open mic night, or some other free and relaxing music-type place.

Any room in this wolf pack for another wolf?

I'm new to the forum and have been living down here in Lexington for about 6 months now. It would be great to meet up with other folks who are living the mustachian dream.

Ya, certainly, the wolf pack can always grow by one more.  I've actually left for christmas vacation back home and won't be back until after New Year's, and I'm not completely sure about Russ, but I think his internship may be over at this point.  Either way though, I'd certainly be up for meeting up with ya sometime after I'm back.  What brought ya down there?

Sorry man, I got totally out of touch there... been super busy at work as you know. I'll be done this Friday. Thanks for being cool to the former new guy in town. I'll let you know if I'm ever around again.

And congrats on getting hella time off. I'm sure you're enjoying it.

Ha, no worries, one of us will have a stealth van someday and find the other.

Ya, saved up all vacation time for this, although technically I guess I was supposed to only get half since I started in May but the boss never noticed.  Score!

Holy cow that is some pretty epic amount of vacation time! I moved down here because i got hired at a fire department in the area. My wife & I love Lexington so far, it's great being close to so many things.

Still have some folks here in Lexington?  Would be great to meet some other ere/mmm guys and gals at some point.


Update:

For any Lexington Folks that use Facebook, I've created a group there for those of us in the Lexington, KY area:

I'm in the UK now, and I think spider1204 is in Asia or Greece or something for the foreseeable future. There have to be a few new people by now though; good luck!!

I'm in Lexington. There are also a handful in Louisville. Louisville had a meet up a week or two ago that I was hoping to attend, but it didn't work out.

Awesome.  I saw the Louisville thread a few days ago and was sad that I missed it.  I'm not certain I would have made it, but I definitely would have gone if timing worked out. 
The little bit of spare time I've had has been on the ERE Forum.  I'll be spending some more time here to get more perspective.  I'll probably make a post introducing myself in the coming weeks.

I'm in Lexington and would be interested in possibly meeting up at some point if anyone had something in mind.

I thought this thread could use a bump.  Also, I've set this thread to Notify me if there are any new responses.  - I'll try to logon here more often.

With spring time almost here: Anything from hiking, to playing some board games, to just chatting about the MMM lifestyle in Kentucky sounds enjoyable to me.  Are there still a few Lexington area folks around?

Update:

For any Lexington Folks that use Facebook, I've created a group there called "Early Retirement, Extreme Saving, and Simple Living (ERE MMM) Lexington, KY"  I apologize if that name isn't perfect.  Facebook provides a limited amount of space, and I fit the keywords as I am able.  (The MMM philosophy is pretty diverse and wide-ranging.  Describing that in a group title is a challenge for me at least.)

I'll try to keep any meetup data both here and Facebook. (Not everyone has Facebook.)  I'd appreciate the assistance of anyone else that would like to help out with that.
