I have RSVP's from Lews, Lews +1, BioChem.

And me! (but contrary to my prior page RSVP, looks like it will be just me, no +1, due to ski patrol)

I had seen your previous for the date on offer, was just making sure I got the numbers.

Oh, just realized I forgot to add @Bingeworker and +1  Opps!  Did I omit anyone else?

Hello everyone, I'm sad I missed another meetup! I have been terrible at checking the site...and we have also been just so busy here. With the both of us working full time, and Justin having to do extra training lately on his days off, and with kids swimming and skating on weekends, it's been a little bit hectic over here. I also had a sick grandma and had to drive up north suddenly. Ben has my cell #, that might be the best way to reach me last minute. But I will try to check the forum more often.
We are also planning our 6 month sabbatical...just over 3 months to go before we go live abroad. Planning logistics and such are taking up our time.  Hope you are all doing well.

You're going to live abroad!  That's so cool, you were talking about that last summer.  Where did you decide on as your first destination?

Salut Frankieve, Justin & kidlets!

Sorry to have missed you all too!

I will send you a PM with my Private email & cell number as well, since many do not have a chance to check the forum often.

Other Ottawa MMM peeps, I recognize that I am an organizer, (too many years as an office manager),  so if you would also PM me your private credentials, I will have a curated list of Ottawa peeps for future meetups / calendar appointments etc.

Wow, fun!  Pretty impressive that you guys are pulling that together so fast.  Keep us posted on how it goes, and if you start a blog, let us know.

Mr. Ed and I would love to go, we are free Feb. 3, 10, 16, 17, and 24, if we are looking for a weekend date in February.  We should do it before the Frankieve family takes off on their 6 month adventure, if they are free to join.

Have a great meetup this weekend!

It sounds like only three mustachian households are going ... should we postpone to when more are free?  Maybe the lead time wasn't long enough for people to have a chance to see it's on.

We're free Feb. 3, 16, 17, and 24.  I think Oneyearfromnow made an e-mail list after the last meetup to notify people, maybe we could get it from her and send out a notification once we pick a date and then more folks might be free, I get the impression not many subscribe to or drop in to the meetup page frequently enough to see a short-notice meetup.

I would be one of those that would be interested in the email list because I don't often look at the meetup page.
Who should I pm for this?

Oneyearfromnow has the e-mail contact list, PM her, she is away right now though so might not be online much.  You can pm me too if you want, in case we set something up before she is back.  What dates are you free in February?  And how about you, Frankieve, does any date work for you?

Send me a PM with your general availability. I will send out an email within the next couple of hours. (once I can gain custody of the laptop!)  Only date I have plans is Sunday Feb 10.  @Frankieve please PM me with your departure date, I will want to make sure that we can properly send you off on your excellent adventure!

Hello!

I've sent an email to Frankie, Lews (&+1), Novik (&+1), BioChem, R@63, Jambon, BingeWorker.

@Dee and @Ottawa Feel free to let me know if you can come out.

Per the general discussions so far - I'm proposing Feb 3rd, or Feb 9th.

I have to head home Saturday or Sunday, I need to get salt on my 2" of ice = front walk so the warm weather will work. Plus dentist (Island of Montreal) Wednesday, so no Ottawa for a while.  Either of the other 2 weekends is good.

@Novik , @Ottawa , @Frankieve , @The Investing Hispster , @jambongris , @RetiredAt63

Weather cooperating, I will be there.

So much for weather cooperating, if we are having freezing rain and snow I need to be at the house to keep the walkway clear and salted/sanded, or I won't be able to get into the house later.  The forecast is 5-10 mm rain and then snow, ice pellets in there somewhere, what a mess.
