I'm interested, in south San Jose so somewhere in Campbell would work for me. I agree if we are meeting at night in Nov we would need something indoors.

See, this is what living on the equator does to a kid: I've forgotten to account for seasons!

Yeah- let's come up with a different time / place.  I'd offer my house but, well, it's being rented out. I doubt our tenants would appreciate me inviting guests over.

That meetup we were talking about was going to be next Thursday the 12th at Campbell park right? Has that been scrubbed or moved to another place/time?

Ah, I was looking forward to this, but I think I'll have to pass.  Coming from the East Bay, the traffic is going to be bad & it's so far.  I think I'd be able to join an evening meetup in the East Bay...is there any chance a future meetup might be located there?

I'm down at Palo Alto - have we ever had a meetup in the south bay?

I believe that's what's being proposed, Campbell next Thursday.  It's a bit far for me, probably 1.5 hours by public transit, but I might make it.

If there are more people in the south peninsula I'd be down to meet up around here.

My bad, should have actually read the thread properly before commenting. Yeah, I'll definitely be down for a meet up in the area.

That's Orchard Valley Coffee (349 E Campbell Ave, Campbell, CA) at 5:30PM on Thursday Nov 12th?

We'd be in (2 + a little one) as long we're out of work and the roads cooperate. It's relatively nearby for us.

Yeah! I'm looking forward to our meet up tonight (5:30 Orchard Valley Coffee in Campbell).

I'm bringing along my friend whose house I'm staying at this week. She's excited to go too.  See you there.

So lovely meeting you all!  I hope to you see you again next time in town. In the meantime, I'll see you on the forums - CanukExpat (cute family, yo), Grenzbegriff (love your savings rate), Wynr (I feel we've share history in this valley), (and other mustachians who have not yet registered on forums, eh hem. ).

You just started one! Pick a rough time and rough location and people will come out of the woodwork.

Can I get included in the next meetup too?  I'm in Santa Clara and I just missed the last one :(  Also, could someone email me?  I'm at kim.rebecca.davis@gmail.com.  How do you know if new messages have been posted on here or do you just check all the time?

There's "Notify" button just above the first message in the thread. That's how I learned about your message :)

Btw, I haven't been to a mustachian meetup before as well, but I think it's time.

Same, though I (and I imagine others) won't be able to do any early weekday evenings. 5:30pm meetups in Campbell make me sad.

Cool, thank you!  I will find that notify button.  So can we do a weekend meetup?  Maybe in a couple weeks?  I'm thinking South Bay, but I can also meet on the peninsula.  What do you guys think?

How does the early afternoon on Saturday, January 30th or Sunday, January 31st work for everyone in the South Bay/Peninsula area? We can narrow down the location after setting the date and time.

Tentatively interested in either day.  Mid-morning and mid-peninsula works best for me.  Actual attendance depends on the mood of my 2 year old.

Ha ha, not sure about that, but it is pretty cool :)  Plus, your comment made me smile.

Edit to add: Another East Bay person, but on weekends I'm mobile & can make almost anywhere.  Sat morning is usually busy but otherwise those days seem good.

I'm also in the East Bay, but can make it easily to Redwood City. 

Might I suggest Hoover Park at Woodside Road and Spring Street?  Then if people are interested, I could organize a tour of TechShop (http://www.techshop.ws/ts_menlo_park.html, disclaimer: I invested and so have a lifetime membership).

Hi wynr, that sounds cool. 

Maybe all the East Bay folks could arrange a carpool?

We should have a backup location in case the weather is too wet at the park. Sunday mid-morning works for me (and seems to work better for NorCal).

Hello!
The gf and I would like to meet up at the next meetup.
We're in Mountain View, previously suggested parks and Techshop tour sound like great ideas,  preference for weekends.

Happy Friday!

Anytime on Jan 30 or 31 at Hoover Park in Redwood City and then possibly the TechStop afterwards is good for me.  Based on others' feedback, it sounds like a meetup during mid-morning or early afternoon on Sunday, January 31 would be best.

How about meetup at 12pm PST on Sunday, January 31 at Hoover Park in Redwood City and then possibly TechStop tour afterwards?  I've never been to this park before, so I'm not sure what landmarks there are for us to find each other once we get there.

Another Mountain Viewer here.  (That's not really a pun is it?)

Unfortunately I'll probably miss this meetup by a couple hours.  I could get to hoover park by 2:30pm.  I might still stop by in case there are lingerers, since it'll be on my way from SF down to MV.
