I am game in early January. Too chilly for Duke gardens I think. Maybe some where in the southpoint area? It's more central for Durham, Chapel Hill and Apex/Cary people.

The Frontier also has happy hour on the 5th of January but that might be tough for me to make, so I'm hesitant to suggest it...

What about Saturday Jan 7th? We could do lunch? Harvest 18 is really good and it's right by Southpoint.  However may be a little pricy for Mustachian budgets... Thoughts?

Hello all,

Another Raleigh resident interested in talking FIRE with other mustachians.  Guessing there wasn't a meetup on 1/7.

Looking forward to hearing about the next one.

If y'all want to have a get together and are willing to travel down to Fayetteville, I'm willing to host the get together.

I'd be game! I'd love to see your rental empire 😀. Anyone else?

I would be a whole lot happier if my "empire" was more "rental" and less "fixer-upper costing me money".  :)

Put on some work clothes and you can get some first-hand experience at the kind of stuff people have to do to fix up a place...

Sure! It's been a while.  Make sure to join the NC Triangle on FIRE Facebook group too!

Hi Babybalrog,

I've been a Mustachian for a long time and live in Raleigh. 31 year old M.

Raleigh is my base but I teach English abroad, so therefore don't really have a perma-home so to speak. And I'm headed out to China in July for another year there.

However I'd like to socialize for the next two months while I'm here (I usually come back here in the summer) and am definitely down to meet people, say hello, and talk about money. Please keep me in the loop!

Looks like the NC facebook group is meeting:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/266574287039003/permalink/432341593795604/

May 20th. 2pm.  Umstead Park, but on the entrance off the 70.

Meet right in front of the Visitor Center. Take Sal's Branch trail (2.8 miles roundtrip) and have a picnic at the lake.

Now you know what I know. :)

Also a non-facebooker, so thanks for posting this.  The Raleigh Tour d'Coop is that same day (5/20) and we are a stop on the tour so won't be able to make it.

Any word on how we expect this afternoon's rain to play out? Odds looked worse last night, but still, I'm a little worried

I forgot to count how many people showed up, but it was at least fifteen.

Lovely day and even better company!

Is anyone up for a July meet up? I missed the most recent one because I've been so busy that I've not been on the forums. :(

7/8, 7/22, 7/29?

Hey, I just moved to the triangle area from California!  It looks like there's a group here that does meetups every once in a while.  Is anyone interested in doing another meet up at some point?

Welcome to NC!

What part of NC are you in?  I'm in Fayetteville.  A goodly number of folks are in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area.

This facebook group seems to get a bit more activity than this thread:

I joined the facebook group so I'll keep up with things there.

Everyone in the Triangle NC area... we are having a little shindig at my house on Oct 21 at noon.  I'm near the PNC arena.  Feel free to PM me if you  can come and I'll send you my address. 

Potluck style -- please bring something to share.  Also bring chairs if you have any lawn chairs sitting around, please.  I have enough seating for about 15.

See you then!
