Awesome.  It looks like we've got a pretty good turn out.  Somnambulist, do you plan on representing SC?

Sorry, this weekend is not good for me. :-( Apologize for the delay in my reply, but I haven't had time to look at the forums in the last couple weeks.

Sorry to hear that Somnambulist,  hopefully next time.  Is everyone else good with Lake Lucas?   Anybody else want to join us?

Hey Carolina Mustachians!  I am not going to be able to join you this Saturday for the meetup.....unfortunately we have a ceiling repair job that demands attention!  Ugh....but since I have no desire to deal with a bunch of blown-in insulation dropping into the middle of my living room this must be fixed ASAP. :(  Most weekends are pretty open and I'm bummed this one got messed up!  Y'all have fun!! I hope to meet you soon!

No problem, Karen.   Sorry to hear about the ceiling.  I believe that leaves us with three.  I'm still game to meetup if everyone else.

It looks like we'll have to postpone again.  Karen and uspsfan are both out, so it's down to just jpo and myself.  If anybody wanted to come hang out it in Durham around lunch time that could be an option but otherwise we'll have to reschedule.

I'd still like to make this happen, but clearly I'm lousy at picking dates.  :) 

Anybody else care to suggest a meetup time?

I don't have a suggestion for a date yet, but I'm game to try again!  Maybe slightly cooler weather will bring the mustachians out of the woodwork.  :)

I'd love a meetup! I'm in the Fayetteville area, so the Triangle is close, but W-S, G'boro and Charlotte aren't a bad drive either.

Masha, JPO and I are both in the Triangle so final location will end up depending on who all responds and what ends up being a fairly central location.  I'm open to suggestions for a date because we've seen what happens when I pick one.  :)

Hi Paul.  I believe you're the third person in the Triangle.  Maybe we're reaching a critical mass to actually meetup.

I suggest waiting it out until the weather gets warmer (March-April?). Granted it's supposed to hit 70+ this weekend, but that's very short notice.

In other news, if anyone wants to play tennis/golf around Chapel Hill on the weekends, hit me up, my regular partners are too busy with their own lives, it seems. :)

Charlotte resident here. I'd be into meeting, not sure about driving all the way to Raleigh though. I got one of my coworkers addicted MMM as well so that's at least the two of us. Hopefully something can come together closer this way.

I recently started a couple of projects MMM or ERE type projects. I'm building a tiny house on a trailer, I got my plans from Tumbleweed Homes. My trailer is coming back from the welder any day now and I can start laying the subfloor and insulation. http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/

The other project I'm working on is biking more. I'm trying to limit my driving miles to 10,000. Which doesn't sound like a hard goal but my office is 13 miles from my house. I estimate it's about 6,500 per year in commuting.

I propose we meet Feb 16 somewhere in the Triangle.  I'm open to suggestions for locations - bar, restaurant, someone's house? 

And Paul, I have a feeling I won't provide much of a challenge, but I'd hit around some tennis balls on the weekend.

My schedule is open for Feb 16. Who else?

@fire don't worry I'm only a recreational player myself. I'll PM you specifics when this ridiculous weather stops.

Let's say 1:00 on Sat., Feb 16.  Any preferences for location?  Maybe Tyler's in Durham?

Just found out my morning obligation on Saturdays is shifting to noon-1ish. I'd be able to do something around 2 at the earliest.

Hi Everyone!

I've been an MMM reader for at least a year, but didn't think to register until I saw this NC thread. I'm in Cary, and would love to meet up in the Triangle area or carpool to Charlotte.

Early evening is fine for me, still on Feb 16. I can vouch for Tyler's- great beer selection and reasonably priced food too. For those unfamiliar with Durham, it's in the middle of the American Tobacco campus in downtown Durham.

It sounds like we have jpo, fire and myself confirmed, potentially with ph0rque, and Karen if she can find other folks from Charlotte.

Oh, if the time shifts much later I won't be able to make it. Friend's wedding starts at 5. I could potentially do 2:00 though, if that works for everyone else.

Sherr,

I'm good with 2:00 if it works for everybody else.  is 2:00 at Tyler's in Durham on February 16th good for everyone?  I'm sure we'll be there for a while so if people needed to come a little late that would be fine too.

Sorry you can't make it, Sherr.  I'll be at Tyler's at 2:00 tomorrow.  I'll be wearing a faded Cal baseball cap and I have glasses.  PM me if you want to get my cell phone number and make it a little easier to organize.  Looking forward to meeting everyone else tomorrow.

I don't see the snow being a problem, it's not sticking on the roads (here at least).
