Replying to join in on the fun. I just moved here today for an internship this summer, and am hoping to attend the next one.

I'll be out of town for the next one (next week?) but hoping to join again for a summer meetup!

Seriously.  Last time Mon-Wed worked, but everyone picked Thurs.  We'll be back in town Memorial Day weekend (for Camp Mustache and a wedding), but can't make the Thursday day before CM Gasworks meetup.  :P

Maybe after Memorial Day or something? The Gasworks tends to be fun for those that haven't met Pete yet though, but less intimate than most, I imagine.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

Arebelspy, can you confirm what dates CM is, and what would be a good date relative to that for those passing through the night before to have a meetup?

CM is Memorial Day weekend.  Next Fri - the following Monday.

There's always an MMM meetup in Gasworks park the night before (next Thursday night).

The previous ones all were organized (what little organization it took) based on someone knowing the schedule of people passing through en route to CM. Sounds like we now have that. I'll post something separate in this thread and also to the WA facebook group for Thursday at 6:30.

Pre Camp Mustache Meetup time![/size]

Thursday May 25 at 5:30pm at Gasworks Park!

Meet on the grass at the end of the pavement just south of the picnic shelters and east of the big equipment. For those that have been there before, this is the same place we've historically met for the pre-CM meetup.

Look for a big crowd of people with bikes and possibly some beverages (please be discreet and aware of park rules).

This link should take you from the parking lot to where we will be gathering!

Yeah! I think I will actually get to attend this meetup this Thursday as well, continuing the tradition.

I'll be getting to Seattle that afternoon, riding up from Portland with Brandon Cronan and his lady Taylor, for those of you that know them.

Does anyone live nearby and have a spare couch or something I could crash on? I'll be traveling alone, so as you can see this trip is running in last-minute planning mode :-)

Yes!  I have a house about 1.5 miles walk/bike up the hill north of gas works.  I'll PM you with more details if you're interested.  -Stephen

Also just sent a PM if you still need a bikeable place nearby.

Glen's post and facebook event says 630, MMM says 530 on the blog/twitter.

Which is it?

Revised to 5:30. I'd done 6:30 as that was kind of the default local meetup time as of late.

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.

I hope no Mustachians were involved in this!
