Ooh -- I can probably come to this one!  I got my free one week Orca card that I have to use -- it expires on Friday.  Is Chuck's anywhere near the Capitol Hill light rail station?  I can google it, of course, but too lazy at the moment....

You probably looked this up already, but the answer is, not really. It's a manageable walk (little less than a mile, maybe?) but there would be some serious uphill on the way back. All things considered, I would think you could swing it, what with all your treadmilling, but that's just my first thought.

I might be able to make this, depending on work. At least this time I will recognize Glenstache so I will identify the mustachians straight away.  :) Maybe someone will know something about tax loss harvesting.

Yeah -- I figured it out. I'll just take the 48 down from the U-District -- it stops a couple of blocks away.

Looking forward to it!

Yes. 6pm at Chuck's Hop Shop in the Central District.

I'll try and remember to bring a mustache themed something-or-other printed on a paper.

Same here. I was bummed to miss the arboretum and Chuck's, but maybe we'll be able to catch the next one. We'll be focused on moving and settling in to the new place for the next couple of weeks, but hopefully things will calm down a bit after that.

Sorry you guys couldn't make it -- we were a small group, just Glenstache, me and Curious Cricket.  Great conversation and excellent liquid refreshment, though! Look forward to the next one.  We might try the north end Chuck's for a change of pace.

I'd be much more likely to join at the north Chuck's...just a short walk from my place.

Anyone up for a meetup next Saturday, 4/23 sometime between 10-2?  I have to take my son to a service learning project in Discovery Park at that time, and was thinking if the weather is nice it would be fun to explore the park with some fellow Mustachians.  If it is raining, we could move to a nearby coffee shop or other suitable venue. 

I'll be doing similar dropoffs of DS in Everett (Union Slough area) on 4/30 and West Seattle (Camp Long area) on 5/7, and would be interested in a similar arrangement if it works for people.  I just did a massive loop around West Seattle this morning -- it was fun, but it would have been even better with company!

Hey Lhamo. I'm busy in the afternoon, but I'd be up for a meetup in the morning-ish -- especially if the weather cooperates, as the views are pretty amazing.

Great!  Would 10:00amish work?  I'm supposed to drop DS off in the South parking lot a bit before that.   I'll try to remember to bring my green mustache stickers and throw one on the back of my car as an identifier in case anyone else who hasn't met us yet wants to join.

Ack. I'm sorry to have missed you all. I arrived late (10:30) and couldn't see anyone other than the group doing grounds-keeping, so I assumed folks had gone off on a trail walk :-/.

I hope to have better luck next time.

Sorry we missed you!  We must have headed out walking just before you got there. 

FYI, I'm headed to China for a couple of weeks so I won't around for weekend walks or other meetups.   Hope to resume them once I am back, though -- especially if the weather stays like it was this morning!

Last year the pre-Camp Mustache meetup at Gasworks park was a great time. Over on the facebook page, it was mentioned that Camp Mustache is just around the corner.

I suggest a meetup at Gasworks Park at 6pm on Thursday May 26.

Gather on the Amphitheater Lawn, same place as last year.
http://www.seattle.gov/parks/_images/maps/picnics/gasworks.pdf

I may be out of town that day for work, but wanted to get the ball rolling a bit ahead of time. Any input, suggestions, whatever welcome and encouraged.

Looks like the meetup at Gasworks is on for tomorrow @ 6: https://twitter.com/mrmoneymustache/status/735448975717715972

Not sure about DW yet, but I should be able to come out for a bit, at least

Bring some food to Gas Works! I don't think anyone left hungry (or thirsty!) last year.

I'm also going to have to miss the Gasworks gathering -- the last parent meeting for DS's program is tomorrow night, and I missed the last one so I really need to catch up with folks there before we wrap the year up.  Looking forward to Camp Mustache this weekend, though!

Kudy - I'll just throw this out there.....I am running a carpool (Adam V on the carpool page) to CM on Friday from my house. Basically just having folks come from the airport and meeting here (3224 S Ferdinand St, 98118) and then we are taking off around 3 for camp. You and your carpool buddies are more than welcome to swing by and hang out (we have beer in the fridge) and if all else fails Columbia City (the hood we live in currently) has great bars and restaurants a block and a half down the street from our house. And fair warning, we have two kids and a dog......the dog's nice....the kids....depends on their mood! :)

I'll bring Kirkland light beer ($0.48/can) and my portable Weber Q, and some ears of corn for roasting.  The more corn the merrier.

[Did anyone NOT see the Gasworks get together notice on the FaceBook 'Washington Mustachians' group?]

Thank you! That's just my style ;) I'll run it by the others in my carpool, but I think it's likely we'll want to swing by. I'll PM you my phone number.

It's a big park. Where will you guys be?

It's been a month since MMM and the Mad Fientist joined us at the meetup, where I promised to try to organize another one to keep the community rolling. So to continue the fun, how about we go back to the place where the magic happened, Gasworks Park.

How is Saturday, July 9 for everyone?

That is the day before I leave for China, but should be able to make it.

If anyone is interested in meeting up for a beer at Chuck's Hop Shop on 85th between now and then, let's pick a date.  Pretty much any day other than June 30th or July 5th work for me.

Yes, I'd be interested. I can't commit to a particular date in advance due to having a baby at home, but set a date and I might be able to show up!

Cool.  @nickybecky1, What time are you planning on for the 29th?  My wife's mom is coming to town but we'll make it if we can.  Otherwise we'll be planning on the Gasworks meetup on the 9th.

How about 5p on July 9? That way, people can enjoy the day on their bikes or their feet and then meet after.

I'm trying to persuade my wife and 11-month-old son to come.
