South Florida Meetup
« on: April 14, 2019, 12:07:42 PM »
Hi Everyone!

I'm very interested in meeting up with some like minded individuals here in South Florida.  My wife and I have recently discovered FIRE although we were on our own path via real estate prior to this. South Florida in general doesn't seem like it would have many FIRE enthusiasts with people so concerned about appearances and keeping up with the Jones's.

That being said, my wife and I are in our early 40's DINK's and looking to stay motivated and learn from fellow FIRE converts. We're located in Palm Beach County (Boynton/Delray area).  I'd be happy to arrange the logistics for a meetup if people are interested!

Wish you posted this just a few days ago. I was down in Boynton and Delray for a wedding this weekend, and had some downtime on Friday.

Dang, OK maybe next time you're in town and if you're interested.  Where are you currently located?

Hi Daisy,

Sounds good! Do you think we can recruit 3 more people? and then we can lock down a location next! :-) Look forward to meeting.

There are a couple of other threads where South Floridians tried to meetup. As far as I know, it has never happened. Maybe we are just a lazy bunch.

Check out these threads:

It sounds like we have the following people in South Florida (including me):

@Even Steven
@Wanderer10
@Sailors Grave
@rxfish
@Spitfire
@TVRodriguez
@nazar
@FIstateofmind
@85urquattro

Adding us to the list, but don’t count on us being regulars.  We are over on the other coast in Naples area, but get over to Miami at least a few times a year, though with a new baby, we’ll see how that works out in the future! 

If anyone is out here, feel free to drop us a line.  =)

 We can meet up somewhere in between. Just about a month ago I realized I've never been to Big Cypress National Park and it might be nice to do a hike around there combined with a picnic.

Congratulations on the new baby!

Thanks for this. Just joined, it seems to be a busy group and has an event calendar for meetups. It may be easier to piggyback off them.

I joined the fb group. I'm thinking I'll check out a meetup through them. I'd definitely be interested in a mustachian one too
