August picnic sounds great.

A picnic sometime ago in Central Park near the Diary (mid-park near 65th Street) worked out well, so that's worth considering unless somewhere else is preferred.
( https://www.centralpark.com/things-to-do/attractions/dairy-visitor-center-gift-shop/ )

I may do a hike near Cold Spring on Sat., 8/25 but most other August weekend days currently work for me. [Hike details to follow separately for anyone interested in joining]

Anyone want to propose date, time and place for the August picnic?

Details for the hike near Cold Spring on Sat., 8/25:

Excerpt from the hike organizer:
Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park near Cold Spring, NY.

The hike is classified as moderate with an elevation gain of about 870 feet. We will be crossing creek beds, so wear shoes you don't mind getting wet.

Meeting point will be the Metro North railway station in Cold Spring, NY.
        From Grand Central, train departs at 7:45am and arrives at 9:07, no transfers necessary ($29)
        From Harlem 125th St, train departs at 7:56am and arrives at 9:07, no transfers necessary ($29)
    Organizer will have cars at the train station to drive 10 minutes to the trail head.
    The hike will take approximately 3.5-4 hours and we will have several options afterwards:
        Drive (~10 mins) to a lakeside beach
        Drive back into Cold Spring for lunch before departing
    The trains out of Cold Spring are hourly (2:16, 3:14, 4:06, 4:18, etc), so if anyone needs to leave immediately after the hike, no problem and if anyone wants to stay and enjoy the coastal town of Cold Spring, no problem!


What to bring:
    Small daypack (backpack)
    2 liters of water
    Snacks/lunch: foods that offer a mixture of protein and carbohydrates, such as trail mixes, fruit with individual packets of nut butters, fruit with individual servings of cheese, granola bars that also have nuts/seeds, pre-made sandwiches, bagels and nut butter, etc.
    For women, bring a plastic baggie, tissues and travel-size antibacterial lotion in case you need to use the "facilities" while on the trail. We need to take everything back off of the trail with us; no littering!
    Sunscreen
    Insect repellent (ticks are bountiful this year)
    Sunglasses or a hat with a brim
    Your phones or cameras for pictures!
    An extra shirt or lightweight sweater to avoid the chill of an air-conditioned train after sweating
    We will keep an eye on the weather as it gets closer, but you should always carry a lightweight rain shell/poncho just in case

What to wear:
    Sneakers or lightweight hiking boots/shoes
    Again, we will be crossing stream beds, so wear shoes that can get wet if it's unavoidable
    Socks with some cushion to the soles if you haven't been hiking lately; lightweight wool is an excellent wicking material for socks
    Shorts or lightweight pants and a t-shirt or tank, preferably not cotton so you can wick away sweat as you get warmer

I think we have space for J1 and I for sure. Momma and J2 are coming to see us across the finish line, and I'm not sure about them. We may take you up on the offer for them - how much notice do you need (can it be a gameday call on the 1st?)

Also have (modest) room (ask @monstermonster) but it's in Harlem which sounds less than ideal for your plans.

Anyone have interest in meeting up this weekend? I'm going to try to attend a Slate Star Codex meetup at 3pm on Saturday 8/18, but would be interested in meeting up earlier in the day (say 11am?) at Central Park or something similar.

Thanks!  I understand who Jack Bogle is and use Vanguard, but what should I expect at a Bogleheads meetup?

If you aren't aware, there's a Bogleheads forum and wiki - check out https://www.bogleheads.org/

The meetup is pretty free form - we talk about investing, recent news, general personal finance stuff, whatever questions or topics people want to bring up.

Welcome to NYC! I just got here in April so I can sympathize!

What about a potluck, picnic, or park meetup on 9/30? We could host a potluck at our place in the East Village.

Good morning, I moved back to the US/NYC late last year and have been trying to figure out how to make life here work for me and my husband in the long term. We very recently learned about MMM (I think someone mentioned it in NPR's YMYL group?). I am curious to meet people who have been able to follow MMM tenets given NYC realities, its temptations and its rents. If it isn't too late to join the meetup on Sunday, I would appreciate it if we could join you to learn more about how you do it.

Sorry I missed it! Megabus waits for no man.

(But we all wait for Megabus, hours longer than we were supposed to.)

I'm back in a couple weeks if anyone wants to get together on Oct 14.

In case anyone's interested in joining this hike this Saturday, 10/13:

Our goal is to hike approximately 7 miles of the Appalachian Trail out of Pawling, NY.
- This section is called Cats Rock Trail and it starts at the Metro North-Appalachian Trail Station.  Hopefully we’ll see some fantastic Fall foliage of the Hudson Valley

Here's the plan for the day:

    - Meet at 7am at the Harlem-125th St. Metro North station (roundtrip ticket is $33.50)
    - Train departs Harlem-125th St. at 7:20am.  (If anyone wants to leave from Grand Central, this train departs at 7:10am).  Let’s all try to get on the last car of the train, if possible.
    - We are going to the Appalachian Trail Station on the Harlem Line
    - We'll arrive at the trailhead (after 1 transfer) 2 hours later, approximately 9:20am
    - We have 5 hours to hike before our return train departs at 2:35pm (we will be taking breaks along the way and a snack/lunch break in the middle)
    - We'll be back at the Harlem-125th St. Metro North station at approximately 4:35pm

What is the difficulty level of this hike? When I looked up the name of the trail it says it's only 2 miles.
