With Camp Mustache Seattle having just happened, is anyone interested in meeting, maybe sometime in June?

We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.

Yes!  See: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/meetups-and-social-events/vancouverseattle-camping-meetup-june-910-2018-(bellingham-washington)/
Oh right, I remember seeing that. I'm actually camping that weekend too, but with a different group of friends so I won't get a chance to go.

Martin Way Mobile Home Park.  It is south of Seattle by a bit, maybe an hour depending on traffic.  It is just west of Marvin Rd on Martin Way, which is just off the I5.  There is the train to get to SeaTac, I believe.  I used a shuttle service when I lived there, not cheap but doable.  I lived there 10 years ago when I worked at the Post.  There are a few other smaller parks in the area.  A Costco in sight, and grocery stores in walking distance.  Not far at all from the Sound. with a nice State Park on the water just up Marvin Road on the other side of I5.  It is a 55+ park, but they gave me some lattitude as I had just turned 54.  A lot depends on how full they are, I think.  Current reviews are mostly ok.  Lacey is between Tacoma and Olympia, literally each is a couple of Interstate exits each way.

ChooseFI Seattle August meetup - 1pm at Gas Works Park on August 25th at 1pm. Come join us to meet like minded folks! Feel free to bring a sharable snack and a comfy chair or blanket. Children and pets are welcome!   We'll be towards the back of the park, near the concrete sculpture tunnel thing that you can walk through.

It's usually somewhere between a month and every couple of months from my experience, and usually half a dozen to a dozen people show up.

That said, I'm up for meeting this month, is anyone else?

I propose Sunday, Sept. 23rd @ 1pm in Green Lake Park (7201 East Green Lake Dr N, Seattle, WA 98115). If the weather isn't too bad, we can meet outside, otherwise we can meet inside the community center.

PTF since we're moving to the area soon. We won't make the next meet up, but potentially the one after.

I'm new to the forums and pretty new to the Seattle area. I can't do the proposed Sept 23rd date but I'd like to meetup, I'll keep my eye out for future dates.

@Daisy, not anything that I know of, but if you want to throw something out there for one of the days you're in town I'd be happy to join in if I'm able (as I'm sure others would be too)

+1. I can't make the September meetup, but I should be available in October. Always nice to meet more MMM'ers!

Is the meeting today still on? If so, where exactly are we meeting (Greenlake's pretty big...)?

We'll probably be a bit late, but if it's happening, we'll definitely show up at least!

Yep it's still happening. I haven't gotten there yet so no spot picked out yet. Tentatively, meet near the community center entrance and then we'll figure it from there

Sounds good.

I arrive on Saturday, October 6th at night. I suppose for those working types, meeting on Sunday, October 7th may be best? How about Sunday night? I don't know the area, so pick a place. I will be staying around the Harrison Ridge Greenbelt, but can probably meet anywhere. I will be visiting a friend that works at Microsoft during the week...another possible area.

If you'd like to meet during the week that would be fine too.

There's a place not too far from you called Chuck's Hop Shop that's a casual place to meet. Do you want to try for Sunday around 6 or 6:30, or try a week day?

I just arrived in Seattle. Sunday at 6 or so at Chucks Hop Shop sounds great! I saw it is a mile from where I am staying. Who else is in?

We've been MIA for a bit (we had a kid and another one is one the way!) but I thought I'd check in to see when the next get-together is.  It looks like we missed the October one but how's November 3rd or 17th for everyone? 

And welcome (back?) arebelspy and family!

We could do either the 3rd or the 17th. What time of day are meetups generally? With kids, I'd prefer morning or mid afternoon, but understand that may not work for the group.

I am off 164th on the way to Mill Creek but I consider it close to Lynnwood! I haven't posted much on the forums but followed the articles for years now.

Third Place Books would work for me (especially if the weather turns out to be less than good).

To get a date on the books so people can plan, how about the 17th at Third Place LFP?  Maybe 1pm-4pm (or whenever people feel like wrapping up)?
