Howdy everyone!

I'll be in Ottawa (house hunting) from the 14th to the 20th.

If anyone's in town and has free time, I'd love to meet up!

SouthEast Ottawa,

Sadly I won't have my bike next week but I do like cycling so I'll send you a message this summer when I'm installed.

(If you want more details on the location, I list a few properties I have my eyes on in the last message in my journal)

Congrats!

I like meeting people that are on/completed their FIRE journey, it keeps my motivation stay high, since even though I don't hate my job, I'd much rather not have to work if I didn't want to.

That is kind of how I felt.  I liked my job, it is just that I wanted more than four weeks vacation.  Since part-time or Job Sharing wasn't available, I retired.  So far the only thing I miss is the social aspect of my coworkers.  Not the work.

Getting too lazy on this long summer vacation here in Ottawa, I remembered that to fix anything you need to think of yourself as nothing more than a Big Collection Of Habits.
So I re-read this classic and it is helping :-)

p.s. anyone here want to meet up on Saturday morning for a leisurely 50km bike ride from East End to West End (Gloucester to Dunrobin)? Fairly slow and along all the bike paths the whole way. If so maybe we can coordinate in the comments below.

He did not comment in this thread so please make sure to go comment on the facebook post if you would like to join him! Let's represent Ottawa and meet up!

Sounds great!  Happy to partake in any regional shenanigans... so sad you missed La Machine though.    Super cool...

I did see LaMachine on sunday, the machines were cool... the battle, somewhat less. I prefer robot wars!

Posting mostly to follow in case people propose anything- right now my main social calendar event for mustachians is CMC 2017, but I'm open to the idea of meeting up in town! Right now I'm usually in for board games, leisurely bike rides, and general hanging out :)
Having fun isn't hard when you have a library card.
