I'm in. I need more people to talk to about things that actually matter!
I spent the first 6 years of "real" life in a self imposed semi retirement, to secure a lifetime of stories. Now it's time to secure the next lifetime through the badassity of FI.

I'm down for that. Heck, even happy to host if people want to do the drive down/over to Bellevue...

I'm in! No bandwidth to do any actual planning (too busy with Camp Mustache...hope to see y'all there!) but I'd love to attend.

I think we have an offer for a host! I'm 30 miles north of Seattle anyway (Lake Stevens), so it hardly matters where this is located. Huzar, when and where!?

Pray tell Mr. Yolfer sir, what is Camp Mustache, and how can I learn more about it?

Weekends work best for me... so, how's about the afternoon of Saturday, February 28th. I can pretty easily accommodate, say, 12-15 people. More if I get creative. Potluck?

Bellevue ain't the easiest place to get to by public transit on a weekend, so I'm certainly willing to let someone else propose a location.

You've been officially self-nominated. It seems SeattleStache is in for the count. I'm IN. Have a friend who's likely highly interested. So lets call it 3+Huzar. Who else is in?

I have a car (as long as DH doesn't need it, but he probably won't) and live in the CD. I'd be interested in a meetup! I thought about going to the last one, but chickened out thanks to introversion. But if I've already agreed to drive someone, then I can't chicken out, can I!

The car is a sedan and holds 3 riders comfortably, 4 somewhat squished (excluding the driver). Although I wouldn't want to spend the ENTIRE afternoon driving, I certainly wouldn't mind picking people up within a reasonable distance. I will take requests. :)

Definitely. I'll wait a bit to see if anyone else has a need, then will find out the destination location, then will PM anyone with the logistics. Stay tuned. :)

Hold the face punches until AFTER you ride in my Land Yacht. I drive a '97 Grand Marquis. Seats Six. Can readily handle 3 adults in the back seat, 2 in the front. Depending on if my wife comes, I can pick up 3-4.

I would love a ride! I live near the CD and can easily head that way to meet up.

Thinking early afternoon for a time. 2pm?

Address is 1003 166th Ave SE, Bellevue, 98008

Just a heads up... I have a large, friendly dog. If you're allergic, or big dogs scare you, take appropriate precautions.

Secondary warning. My wife is pet starved, if your dog is fluffy and active, she might steal it and take it home with her...

You met my dogs (now down to just one) at ADV WetFest in Wenatchee in 2012, Alex, when we had that incredible thunderstorm roll right over our heads...

Oso is fluffy and somewhat active, so if Kristi ever wants some puppy therapy, she's welcome to borrow him.

I'd love to make it to a local meetup one of these days, but I'm going to be in Florida that weekend for a friend's ridiculously anti-Mustachian destination wedding at Disney World. Maybe next time.
I made a blog! https://seattlecyclone.com/

The Roth IRA was named after William Roth, who represented Delaware in the US senate from 1971-2001. "Roth" is a name, not an acronym. There's no need to capitalize the final three letters.

Looks like we have 8 or 9 plus Huzar (host).

I'm able to give others a ride as well, I'm coming north from the Everett area. Shoot me a text 425-367-8949

Seems like a reasonable count so far... I'll ask for a more accurate show of hands about a week before the event.

We are in Shoreline if anyone over there wants to perhaps carpool.

Do you have room for 2 more?  We are mid 40s, recently FIRED and live in Redmond.  Slightly eccentric but not creepy.

I'll do a final accounting this Sunday, so that I have a firmer headcount. For now, there is space, though I may be asking people who have folding chairs to bring one.

Also, keep in mind that this is going to be a small potluck. Bring something to share, or a six pack, or whatever moves your furniture :)
