Looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday!

Sunday April 24 at 12:30pm at Duke gardens. Here it the link to the map again: http://m.imgur.com/eJXH2j8?r

I am planning to bring homemade bread for the potluck! I also suggest we each bring our own water/beverage.

MMM party?

Any gatherings around CLT?  I'm spending a lot of time around Cornelius these days.  Would be good to meet for a beer sometime.

GreenEggs-

I live between Winston & Lexington, a local meetup sounds like a great idea!  Any suggestions for locations?  Anybody else in the Triad?

I plan on being there as well, with ... Mrs. Change_Seeker (that sounds awkward) ... and our three mini-mustaches.  Spoiler Alert, I do not have any form of a real-life mustache...although now that I mention it we have had a lot of fun with the stick-on ones from the dollar store.

Hi change_seeker I'm from Lexington. I live on the side closer to Winston-Salem. It's nice to see a fellow Mustachian from the triad. Unfortunately I can't make the meetup this Sunday. Somewhere in the Winston-Salem or one of the smaller towns around it would be good for a triad meetup I think.

Looks like the weather is going to be great on Sunday. Not sure what I will be bringing yet, hesitating between a bean salad and pineapple.

I also suggest we each bring our own water/beverage.
Cool, I have been meaning to show off my vanguard water bottle.

That vanguard water bottle is hilarious.

Not sure what I'm gonna make yet either....

Nice seeing/meeting everyone who came!

Swordguy, thanks for the RE chat! Would love to do a meetup to see some Fayetteville RE, maybe when you don't have three house projects 😀

Hello Triangle!

My name is Juan, I live in Raleigh with my wife Elisa. We recently attended Camp Mustache 2016 and loved meeting so many mustachians. I enjoyed it so much that I am planning a mustachian meetup in the Raleigh area!

I have exchanged a few emails with Justin from rootofgood.com and it is likely he will come!

Here are the details:

When: June 25, 2016 at 10:00am.
Where: NC Museum of Art (2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607)
What: Meet and hang out with fellow Mustachians!

Let me know if you have any questions. Hope to see many of you there!

Hey Juan, I just emailed you back (sorry I missed your earlier email a few days ago!), but I see you've already got a time set up.

I should be there. 

Any shady places to hang out outside or is there a good lounge space inside if it's super hot/humid?

Hey All,

Just wanted to let you know that we have changed the time to 10am. Same date and place.
Changed the time because:

- 5:30pm may be too hot for some and we wouldn't have the option to go inside since the museum would be closed.
- At 10am we have the option to go inside if it's raining.

Sorry if the change is an inconvenience. Looking forward to meeting everybody!!

Hi, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday.  I bumped into thedayisbrave this week at The Frontier and she's in for Saturday.

Where do we want to meet?  Weather says high of 86 degrees so it might get hot by noon.  I looked at google streetview and there appear to be some outdoor tables but not a ton of shade sort of in between the 2 art museum buildings in a courtyard area.  Their website mentioned picnic tables under some trees to the east of their east building (the older and less modern looking building) but I can't recall ever seeing them. 

Inside the museum there's a lobby area with comfy seats that runs into an open cafe area with even more comfy seats.  The cafe doesn't serve till 11:30 so we could probably hang out there till 11:30 and probably later if it's not nice outside.  I'll try to call tomorrow to check on whether they care if we loiter in the cafe area (I doubt it's ever anywhere near full since there's two separate seating sections within what looks like the cafe area from google streetview imagery inside the museum).  Obviously I don't want to subject the group to spending $5 on a coffee or whatever the fancy pants museum charges so we'll see what they say.  They might also have other rooms in the museum where they could host us.  I'm open to other suggestions too since I've only been to the museum a few times in the past several years since the new building opened. 

FYI, I think the Hunt Library at Centennial campus would be another excellent venue for a meetup in the future (for the Raleigh folks at least).  Lots of inside meeting space and some good outside picnic tables and it's a cool facility.  Free parking nights and weekends.  And fairly bikeable to get there if you're in Raleigh.

Hey Justin, thank you for taking the lead on finding an exact spot. Last time I was at the Museum with a group of friends we just hung out under the shade of the trees near the outdoor amphitheater.

Let's meet outside by the amphitheater, and then we can decide if we want to go inside or stay outdoors (I'd suggest bringing a picnic blanket or a folding chair in case we stay outside).

Look forward to meeting everybody!!

Great meet up today at the NC Museum of Art.  Hard to complain about the near-perfect weather for late June (though I still got some major sun burn/tanning going on).  I think I counted 8 of us.  Paul der Krake, Juan and wife and a few of his friends, and what I assume was Bourbon Belle (though I forgot to ask your screen name Ms. Belle).

Sorry you missed it too, Hualon. I do like the idea of having a place where we can plan meetups and that people will check more regularly.

I think Meetup charges organizer fees. A Facebook group should also work and it is free!

Just created the group:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/266574287039003/

If the link doesn't work, try searching for "NC Triangle on FIRE".

Join in if you want and let me know if you have any trouble :)

FYI, there's a poll and discussion on the facebook page for a meetup later in August or, more likely, September.  Hunt Library at NCSU's centennial campus is the current front runner I think.

Reminder that we're meeting up at Hunt Library on NC State University's Centennial Campus at 1 pm Saturday 9/17. 

On the Triangle on FIRE facebook page I suggested we meet up in the lobby in front of the elevators by the woven wicker bench that looks like modern artwork (but I'm 90% sure it's an actual bench for sitting; if you're tiny you can also crawl through it).

The poll taken on the Facebook group came out to October 29 at 11am for a potluck in Crabtree Park in Raleigh.

Thanks, I was having trouble with the search function, did I miss a South Carolina group or does this one cover both states pretty well?

I am not aware of any active SC group- but everyone is welcome to ours. We've had folks come from as far as Wilmington, but you will probably be setting a record if you show up!

I have no plans that day, just the thought of a 3.5 hour drive might stop me, but I discovered MMM 2 weeks after moving AWAY from Denver and I had no luck meeting any Mustaches in San Antonio, of course I now see an Austin meetup 2 weeks after moving to South Carolina! So I will put it in my calendar and try my best.

Hey All - I'm back. Just took a few months off from the forums. Sorry I missed the meetup at the Hunt Library! So we've got something percolating for Oct. 29?

Hey all,

We're visiting your fair area until the 27th, and thought it might be fun to meet up with you all. Do you have any plans for an upcoming meetup, or would anyone be interested in one? Our schedule is relatively open, have nothing else to do :)

Suggestion on location is great as well. I saw that you met up at Duke Gardens previously, that's selfishly close to where we are staying, but I'm not sure if the weather calls for an outdoor meetup. I'm open to exploring anywhere or roughly accessing neighboring city. Sure I could find a way to get out there.

Hope to meet some of you.

Would love another meetup, but not sure if the holidays have people scurrying about -- December/January are usually tricky months to plan anything, at least among my friend circle.

I'm totally down though.  I'm right on the Raleigh/Cary border so Durham isn't too far for me.  Perhaps we can see how many are up for a meetup.. but if not just PM me and we can plan our own mini meetup :)

There is also a Triangle Area Mustachians Facebook group.. I know some peeps are active on there and not so much on the forums.. once we get something set up I will cross-post.
