Sorry guys - I messaged Deb but I woke up late not near Abborsford and the GF wanted to hang out and that's a pretty strong pull factor in my life.

It was wonderful! Thanks very much for coming everyone. I really enjoyed myself, and loved the financial discussion.

Got the message. Told some people (maybe not all). totally understand - especially as your car accident is very recent! Take care and keep well.

Ahhh so sorry to miss this! I was trawling through my junk mail for some unrelated email and I saw the recent notifications…which had always previously gone to my inbox. I was even thinking I should check the forum before the 15th but then totally forgot. Hopefully you all liked each other enough to want to meet up again, and it sounds like Lentil As Anything is a good meeting spot. Having a separate group like Facebook would be good to avoid missing out, but I hope to spot the next meet-up either way!

A friend recently referred me to HelloFresh and now I have two free boxes of food to pass on (enough for 3 meals for two people, delivered to your door). Once you sign up you then get 3 free boxes worth of referrals, so this feels like a giant pyramid scheme where no one will ever buy any food boxes.

Otherwise if you miss out on my free referrals if you use the code URS73C you get $35 off your first box of food (full disclosure: then I get $30 of credit with them).

You can cancel/pause your subscription at any time, just make sure you do it within the first week or you'll get dinged $69 for your second box. They deliver in Melbourne and other metro centres. I just thought this was a worthy promotion to pass on to Mustachians!

Oh that would be really cool! Maybe we could do the capital city trail (or part of it) and have a picnic at the convent on the way.

Exactly what I was thinking! I've been meaning to explore the Capital City Trail for a while, and just haven't gotten around to doing it.

Merri Creek trail up to Coburg Lake is nice as well. There migh be BBQs up there we could use, though I imagine all of Melbourne is waiting for a fine enough weekend to get out and use them as well.

That sounds pretty good. I've ridden along bits of the Capital City Trail (hell, I commute along some of it), but not the whole lot.

So timely! I was just looking into the Capital City Trail a couple of days ago! I'm in, depending on what day it's on ( I work during the week and every second Saturday)!

Ok assuming this didn't happen on September 12th do we want to make it October 3rd? I just did the capital city trail yesterday actually, was a perfect day for it.

Unfortunately it's my sister's birthday tomorrow so I've got a different bike ride planned. Can anyone do Sunday? Or maybe in a fortnight.

Sundays work for me, except this coming weekend. I'm leaving Melbourne at the end of November and it would be nice to have a meetup before then. Maybe we could just have a picnic/BBQ in a park somewhere?

Any chance of a south-eastern suburbs location everyone?
Anywhere from St Kilda to Brighton to Oakleigh is good for us...

St. Kilda might work, if it's not too busy.

A picnic/BBQ could work well too.

Yep I'm fine with St Kilda - have young kids though so if was on the weekend during the day or early evening it would mean both the wife and I could come.

G'day all,  the missus and I would be up for this depending on the day/night, but we're generally available as we mostly do things around the house keeping the costs down :)

We're down the SE suburbs,  in Edithvale.  Happy to meet up anywhere really, or if the group thing becomes too hard to schedule just hit us up anytime (msg,email) and we'll see if we're available to catch up for a chat.  it would be refreshing to talk to like minded people for a change instead of getting blank stares or looks of incredulity when we mention our retirement goals to people.

Cheers,
Mark

G'day Syednaeemul.  Welcome to the forum.  The other Melbournian's seem to be busy pre-XMAS but I for one am glad to see another new Mustachian in Melbourne.

Happy to catch up and talk about happiness in frugality in Australia or anything else really.  We're in the SE suburbs.

Feel free to hit us up anytime, and in the meantime feel welcome !

PS:  Open invite for anyone to catch up with myself and my girlfriend.

Cheers,
Mark

Any Melbourne MMMers interested in planning a meet-up - maybe a barbecue or something on the beach - probably anywhere between St Kilda and Hampton would be most central for everyone to get to.

Saturdays or Sundays would probably be fine for us.

Hey there Andy,

Me and the missus would be up for this,  most weekends are fine for us.

Should we just set a date a month or so out?  This doesn't seem a particularly active thread so it might be better to just set a date between us and see if momentum builds up rather than wait for momentum to build up and then arrive at a consensus. 

Either way we're in.

Cheers,
Mark

Hi there.

I'd be keen to meet up.  I've never met a fellow mustachian before, other than the 2 friends I've half converted!

I'm in Fitzroy but can travel pretty much anywhere by bike.  Always happy to ride down St Kilda way or anywhere along Beach Rd/Port Melbourne etc.

I'm keen to meet up. The CBD would have been more convenient, but a barbecue by the beach does sound nice.

I agree that we should just set a time, date, and place and then just see who shows up. There don't seem to be too many of us judging by the last two meetups I went to, so it might take some time to build up enough momentum to agree otherwise.

A Saturday would probably be best for me. How about February 20th?

20th seems fine on my calendar.
Is everyone thinking lunch-time-ish or evening (it's summer afterall, so if it's a hot day will probably still be light/warm around dinner time)?
We're fine for lunch or dinner.

I can't do the 20th during the day.  I'm attending one of the events at the sustainable living festival, which I thought I'd share as there are some interesting and FREE events, workshops etc.

Or we can do any Sunday in Feb like late afternoon (early dinner) if that works for more people.

the 27th for an afternoon / dinner sounds fine to me and the missus.

Otherwise we are available on the 20th also, anytime.

As for the seminar thing,  we could be interested in meeting up with people there,  but what particular are you thinking looks good to see kaetana?

Cheers,
Mark and De'ana

Yeah I'm keen, although I'm not available on Saturdays for all of February (playing cricket).

I'm in the northern suburbs, but I don't mind travelling a bit for a meet up, even if it's all the way to the other side of the Yarra :)

A barbie at a park or the beach sounds ideal.

Works for us any Sunday this month.

I didn't really have anything in mind - it sounds like misterhosey does, though. Misterhosey?

How about lunch on a Sunday? Dinner would be a little late for us.

hey kaetana, mark and de'ana

Perhaps go through the program and just see if anything takes your interest and sign up. Plenty of the sessions seem to be for free. I originally mentioned it because I thought it might interest some Melbourne based MMMers, but I wouldn't recommend any specific sessions as I don't know any of you or your interests!

Sundays or Saturdays on the suggested weekends suits us fine also.  We tend not to go out much :)

I'll look through the topics and see if anything grabs my attention then post back to see if anyone else was planning on being around there and maybe we can catch up then also.

Mark

This is not fair! Here I was, thinking from the conversation that 20/21 were out and it would be on 27/28, and several people were OK with that, so I have just finished organising something for the 21st! Gggrrr!
