Sacramento Peeps?
« on: September 13, 2014, 10:33:22 PM »
Looked on the map and I only see 2 other Sacramento Mustacians. Anyone else out there? I'd love to get enough people here to have a meet up / activity (it really helps if there's a community, lol)
comment if you're in the area, when there are enough of us--let's get together!

this is so funny! Thank you 1WattLightBulb for actually having the guts to organize a small meetup in Sac! I hadn't even realized all of you had responded back to this thread. must. pay. attention. lol. ok. So today's meetup was small, 3(4) people showed up) and I'd love to see all of you at the next meetup. Want to meet on a Saturday or Sunday in May? I'm going to post in the main forum again. thanks! -Mexitali(gina)

Just noticed this thread. I'm close enough to Sac and would be up for meeting as well.

Perhaps a mustachian summer meetup that includes some easy hiking or getting close to nature somewhere where the crowds aren't?

Sacramento Meetup *need new date*
« Reply #11 on: June 11, 2015, 01:51:21 PM »

Let's meet up on July 12, 2015 in McKinley Park at 11am! Look for the green umbrella. :-)

We can set up some lawn games, discuss MMM principals to achieve FI, share DIY projects and your favorite cost cutting tips. I'd love to get your suggestions to make this a fun day.
I have a toddler so--that's happening. (Lol)
I turned notifications on so I'll actually be notified when you respond to this thread. (Why haven't I thought to do that before now? (?).
Looking forward to meeting you all (again).
Mexitali (gina)

*edit* MEET UP CANCELLED. I sent out emails and all but one of you in Sac are busy that weekend. :-( I'll put up a poll on which dates work best or you can law a response here.

I'm in Sacramento and started reading MMM this summer (found it through family biking blogs I discovered in association with May Is Bike Month). I'd like to meet more local fugal people. I'm most likely to make it to a Meetup scheduled for a Saturday planned 4+ weeks in advance.

I know this thread is old but I am also in Sacramento. My main reason for meeting up is finding other sane people and learning how to +1 my MMM skills particular to this region.
The good: 27 years old, 1 car, not renting anymore.
The bad: Single income, only about $17k in retirement, and no FI date.
The ugly: 1 year ago I was doing much better but lost all possessions due to mold. It has been an emotional roller coaster.

There are tentative plans to have a meetup at McKinley Park at noon on Saturday 26 March 2016. This was proposed by 1WattLightbulb in a PM addressed to those who had posted in this thread.
Greetings Sacramento Mustachians! Last year we had a picnic at McKinley Park on a mid-March afternoon. Are you interested in doing this again? I'll just throw out a random date - does Saturday, March 26 at noon work? It's after the rainy season and before it's super hot, so I hope the weather cooperates.

Last time, we grabbed a picnic table, shared munchies, and basically chatted for awhile. Perhaps this time we could also bring outdoor games or activities and lawn chairs.

I came away feeling more motivated on certain life strategies, and isn't that what it's about - keeping up the momentum? Networking, sharing ideas, celebrating successes, and so on.
rob in cal replied.
Yes, that time is a good one.  Tentatively I could make Saturday March 26.  Rob in cal
Saturdays are generally good for me to. I note on my calendar that 26 March is the day before Easter this year - might affect some people, especially if that means their kids are on spring break the week before or after. No one has proposed an alternate date and I'm OK with 26 March; if someone does, I'd like to note that 5 March, 19 March, 2 April, 30 April, and 7 May are Saturdays I would not likely attend a meetup on. I also would be unlikely to come to a Sunday meetup.

It looks like March 26th, 2016 at noon works for those who responded. Let's plan to meet at McKinley Park. All are welcome. There are picnic tables just west of the rose garden. If they are occupied, we can relocate.

Last year we identified each other by wearing red shirts, so how about we do that?

Hope to see you there!

Today I enjoyed meeting and talking with 4 other Mustacheans at McKinley Park near midtown Sacramento. It was great to hear about the successes of everyone and their current path to financial independence; I felt very welcome as a new member of this board.  Thanks!

I hope we can meet again in September or before that, if the group desires.

(Everyone except for me brought picnic fare to share with others--I'll have to do better next time.)

I just found this thread! I'm over in Davis, and pretty new to the area (Moved here in January). Wish I had found this earlier and been able to attend the March event. Hopefully I'll be able to make others in the future!

Perhaps not a formal meetup, but if anyone ever wants to join me I am usually doing something outside on the weekends. Mostly I've been working my way through the book 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles - Sacramento, but sometimes I'm out riding on trails or going to some free event.

Send me a message if you're bored and looking for something to do. :)

I don't see why a hike or ride couldn't be the focus of a "formal" meetup. I was thrilled to find a bike ride as a neighborhood event on May Is Bike Month.

Since the weather looks nice this weekend, I figured I would knock out a couple of hikes from my list on Saturday (6/18/16). These were described as easy hikes, although it looks like Point Defiance can be made more challenging by doing the loop. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I'm exploring and can't speak to the quality of these hikes, but if anyone else wants to join me then great!

Send me a PM if you want to come and we can work out the details.

This weekend, not sure whether it will be Saturday (7/2) or Sunday (7/3), my plan is to go to Echo Lake with a depart time around 8:00 from Sacramento: http://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/california/echo-lakes-trail

As of a moment ago, the weather forecast for the area showed high-70s which sounds amazing after all of the 100+ days we've been having here.

PM me if you wish to come along.

Greetings Sacramento Mustachians! For the last two years we had a picnic at McKinley Park in March. I PM'd everyone who posted an interest in meeting up again. I suggested Saturday, March 25 at 11:00 am. So far, few have responded.

It's after the rainy season and before it's super hot, so I hope the weather cooperates. Last time, we grabbed a picnic table, shared munchies, and basically chatted for awhile.

Are you in?
