July 9th works for me. I'll just watch UFC 200 later :-)

I know there was a meetup at Chucks hop shop in CD once before. Is anyone interested in meeting there again?

Let's meet at Gasworks Park on July 9 at 5p the same spot where we had the last meetup when MMM and Mad Fientist were here: http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/gasworks.jpg

Looks like the Gasworks meetup should perfectly align with the... ahem... "tail end" of the World Naked Bike Ride, taking place from 1-5:

Good times.

Ha! Just got here and there are no naked bike riders. I'm the fully clothed guy with a green bike.

Oh, they were there (in a-bun-dance?), just next to the grassy hill.

Hike, sorry I missed you. I biked around a bit, trying to locate some familiar faces, but had no luck. I hope other folks managed to find each other!

We had a good group of 10, including two little MMMs! Thanks everyone for coming out. And FiveSigmas, sorry we missed you. I hope the naked bikers weren't too emotionally scarring.

I'm up for making this meetup more regular. I can't meet again until mid August.

How was the Chuck's Hop Shop gathering?

Sure is quiet around these parts... Post Labor Day Chucks appealing? Share tales of our Mustachian summer exploits?

Hmm...I wonder if it might be time for another hop over the border and jaunt down the I-5?

Watching to see what may develop. :)

Ack! Too early in the month for me - there will probably a post in my Journal explaining what I already have planned for a few days around Sept 7th. I would have really liked to have seen Seattle crew again. :(

Yes, please!

It would have been nice to see you too Lhamo!

That first bit...the place sounds AWESOME (damn caps-fetish). I will get there one day. After reading the beer list...I need to get there. :)

That second part...that's  just crazy talk. And makes me uncomfortable. ;)

PS: JS - come down!  Weather likely not to involve torrential sheets of cold rain.

I want too! The rain reference no doubt refers to what I have come to call the Seattle MMMMM event of 2015....Mr. Money Mustache Meetup Monsoon. You know what...I think the deluge made it all the more memorable.

Never fear JoJo and Jon Snow (alliterates nicely!), there will be more meetups!

At one of the previous meetups, the idea was floated of doing a mini-camp mustache with PNW mustachians, and likely not costing four or five hundred a head. This idea has some merit. Not surprisingly, there is a strong outdoor streak, so it could revolve around camping somewhere nice with conversation around the fire.

Hi all! I'm a new addition to the MMM forum (though I've done my share of lurking) but I figured this is a good a time as any to introduce myself and get to know some people in person - count me in, if I can manage to find the place! If you see somebody that looks like he's underage and out of place, that's probably me. And pointers on how to spot you guys?

Welcome! I'll try and bring a couple of 8.5x11 sheets of paper with mustaches printed on them to put on the table.

First day of school for DD and the bank is supposed to call me back tonight about our mortgage payoff, so I'll have to miss tonight, too.  Hope you all have fun!

Let's have another one fairly soon -- maybe at the Greenwood Chucks for us northenders?  Week of Sept 19th would be good for me (DD on a school trip that week, so parental responsibilities reduced)

That location and week sound like a fine idea to me!
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.

This idea was discussed towards the end of the evening last night. How many would be interested in this and, if interested, where would people fall on the primitive camping to rooms with heat and electricity scale?

Timing? If camping oriented, probably mid October or wait until the spring.

I'm attending a charity event on the 18th...but should be available for the week of the 19th. A location with a hotel within walking distance would be peachy as I'll probably do an overnighter if I do drive down for one of these. :)

Not sure about hotels, but there's a bed and breakfast a few blocks from my house, and roughly 15 minutes' walk to the proposed north Chuck's location.

JS, I PMed you with another possible option.

Waiting to see what is happening with DS's schedule that week, but for now let's say Wednesday Sept 21st 6-9 pm-ish at the Greenwood Chuck's.  I've got a morning commitment that day, but might be up for meeting for a walk (Greenlake or elsewhere -- maybe Carkeek Park/Golden Gardens to give JS some salt water exposure?) that afternoon.

Very sorry to have missed last night's get-together, and looking forward to the 21st's!

During the daytime of the 21st I'm booked, so won't be able to join in any pre-brew walking, but if JS stays over and folks would also like to do a morning walk at Green Lake or elsewhere on the 22nd, let me know.

In the meanwhile, will be attempting to propitiate the rain gods so JS dies not experience a reprise of the torrents of rain he encountered last winter!

I'd be interested, either camping or glamping. Sadly for me, October wouldn't work, but will be keen to hear about the adventures if folks can go this autumn!

Timing? If camping oriented, probably mid October or wait until the spring.

Lol...perhaps that was an intentional typo? That Greenlake deluge was so nasty that it could have been dangerous...especially since I came woefully unprepared in terms of rain gear.

I will not make such a mistake this time.

JS, I PMed you with another possible option.

Got it. And thanks again. :)

I'd be interested in camping/glamping too, and I think I could do something mid-october. We camped in Leavenworth one October (climbing during the day and beer at night!) at the Alpine View RV park and campground and it is walking distance to most hotels and (more important for October than other times of the year) has warm bathrooms with plumbing. A set-up like that might be nice so people can camp, RV, or stay in a hotel and still hang out. The east side of the mountains is a bit better weather at that time of year too.

Interesting idea, and i like that it is close to rooms for those that don't like dirt.

Might also be possible to get a group site at 8-mile (mid October is beyond reservations).

If it is a small # of people, then I might be able to host near Lake Wenatchee (limited tent space and facilities). Hiking out the back door, lake to kayak on, climbing nearby (for those that like that kind of thing :)  ).

Many options outside of the 98826 zip code as well.

I believe the 21st will work for me, both the walk and Chuck's.

I am looking forward to meeting the forum members. I sheepishly admit that I am more often a lurker than a poster in these forums. I admire many folks here and look forward to forming two-sided relationships.

I am also potentially interested in camping in October but it depends on specific date and the dates of some of my other unconfirmed travel plans. Leavenworth area would be great, another option to consider is the Washington State Park cabins system. Many parks offer both primitive camping and basic affordable cabin rentals very near each other, to give some options for people. I have stayed in the Rasar state park cabins myself with my wife and friends and it was great. Other good options which I have not tried: Camano Island, Cama Beach, Wallace Falls. For example, Cama Beach has cabins that can accommodate 4-6 people for $75 - $90/night. There is no reservation website, just a phone number, and I have not checked availability. Personally I would be just as happy with primitive camping as cabins.

I'm moving to Seattle in a few weeks now that I am semi-FIREd (semi because I'm not so sure about RE). Looking forward to meeting people at meet-ups.

Mods - Feel free to remove/move this post if it's too off-topic:
I just started looking for a rental or room share situation in Seattle-metro. Using the usual leads (CL, roomster, friend who lives in Greenlake, etc.) with typical response rate. Need rental for 1 guy (no pets currently but prefer dog-friendly potential for reasons I can explain in detail if needed).

Would be really nice to connect with someone who is familiar with FI as roommates or maybe there is someone here thinking of renting out a space in their place to someone who shares a lot of MMM values with me. Feel free to contact me directly or point me to better ways to connect with this.

Thanks!

Ask me about my puppy pics!

I'm in for Chuck's 85th on the 21st.  And my wife and I will keep an eye out for camping details and see if we can make it work.  Anywhere in relatively close proximity works but I especially like the Camano Island idea.  I've heard about those cabins but have never made it there myself.  But camping would be fun too.

FiFoFum, are you interested in living with other people?  It can be a great way to integrate into a new community, and you typically save on your bottom line.  It's been a long time, but I remember finding some cool house shares when I was looking around the area.

Sorry to request a change, but could we possible switch the Chuck's date to Tuesday, 9/20?  I just realized the first PTA meeting at my daughter's school is scheduled for the evening of the 21st.  If the 20th is a no go for most people who have already expressed an interest in the 21st, we can keep things as is.  I will probably just choose to be a negligent parent -- the PTA has survived without me so far, right?  But if switching is feasible for most people, that would help me feel less guilty.

FiFoFum, are you interested in living with other people?  It can be a great way to integrate into a new community, and you typically save on your bottom line.  It's been a long time, but I remember finding some cool house shares when I was looking around the area.

Yes, that is what I'm looking for - to rent a room. That's what I'm doing now too, since it is pointless/waste of $ for me to take on a whole rental/lease by myself for my needs.

There are a lot of shared housing/roommate options posted online in Seattle that I'm sorting through. I just figured I'd ask for any leads or potential within the MMM community.
Ask me about my puppy pics!

Sorry to request a change, but could we possible switch the Chuck's date to Tuesday, 9/20?  I just realized the first PTA meeting at my daughter's school is scheduled for the evening of the 21st.  If the 20th is a no go for most people who have already expressed an interest in the 21st, we can keep things as is.  I will probably just choose to be a negligent parent -- the PTA has survived without me so far, right?  But if switching is feasible for most people, that would help me feel less guilty.

9/20 would be fine by me. I've also posted this question to the fb page in case people are only tracking in one place.

Tuesday sounds fine with me.

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.

Afraid on the 20th I'm booked, but certainly understand if it turns out to work better for others.

Well, it's not quite as simple as "dropping in" for me, since I need to take a ferry to Vancouver, then drive 2.5 hours down to Seattle. ;) I still want to come...the date isn't a big deal for me...since I'm FIRE'd. :) I've shown in the past I will gladly travel considerable distances for these Meetups...both north and south of the border. :)

But yeah, the logistics are a bit more challenging for me. I don't think I'll know until Monday (due to some Snow family stuff) whether I can make it. Sure hope so.
