Camp Mustache Canada: Vancouver Edition - April 27-30, 2018
« on: November 01, 2017, 11:16:51 AM »
This is the public planning thread for Camp Mustache Canada: Vancouver*.

Starting this thread to gauge interest for this event.  Looking at the weekend of April 27-30, 2018 (~6 months from today).

Post if you would like to follow for more information (please indicate if you are just following because it's interesting, or because you are a possible attendee, so I can get a feel for interest level)!

Feel free to pass on the link to anyone you know that might be interested, or post any questions you have. :)


*Current location is Vancouver (mainland), but Vancouver Island is also a possibility (though much more expensive for people to get to, especially international travelers, so it is less likely). If you are interested in Vancouver Island, feel free to suggest venues which have space and food possibilities for us to look into. :)

Based on what I have seen about the other CMC this year I'd be 25% likely to attend the full event. If there was a social night, get together, meet and greet option I would 100% come over from the island for that and I'd be happy to pay a premium as a drop in attendee.

There would very, very likely be a meetup (free, of course) the night before Camp (which some campers may or may not attend), so people not attending can hang out for a bit.

It's generally just a normal MMM style meetup that last 3-4 hours.

This has been tradition before pretty much every CM (CM Seattle runs it out of Gasworks Park the night before every year, and CM Toronto had one @ a dog fountain park this year).

It in no way compares to the full camp, but there are always people that don't want to attend a full weekend, can't attend due to prior obligations, or simply didn't get tickets, so it's nice to have this meetup first. :)

Cool! We will almost definitely come to a pre-camp hangout, possibly more depending on the specifics - where it is (i.e. accessible without car), if it's actually camping vs some sort of cabin setup (boyfriend doesn't camp, and we have no gear anyways), etc. Glad someone's organizing one of these here.

There will be cabins and beds.

So far none of the CMs involve actual camping. :)

My likelihood of attending a CMC in Vancouver or Vancouver Island on those dates would be 90%.

I'm not a massive huge crowd kind of guy also and just love networking and meeting like-minded people. This is a great suggestion by @RC

I have a great connection with Tourism groups, tour guides and outdoor companies as well as between RC and Myself we have extensive hiking and biking knowledge. Maybe we can plan excursions for those wanting to experience the region more intimately on an afternoon.

I think the majority of people who attend CM events are introverts.  Typically you end up in small groups of ~4-6 people which are fluid and changing quite a bit.  They tend to be less pressure and more supportive and intimate than regular MMM meetups.

ARS , that being said I ran sales booth at major global trade shows for years and specialized in corporate sales for a very long time. I'm a public speaker, retailer, guide and ambassador for many organizations......that being said I've tried to lay low and just hang with intimate groups of rad peeps I really enjoy the company of. Thus the meet and greet or small group break-outs would have me stoked.
Also with the right amount of bribery I can be convinced of as much as possible :)
Just happy you guys are considering here for a CMC

It's probably way too early to know, but any rough idea what attendees would be looking at for cost?

TBD.

Checking interest right now.  If we get enough, we'll move to stage two. Right now there's been an okayish amount, but also multiple only interested in an evening meetup, not a full CM.

So we'll see over the next couple of weeks, and at that point more details will be forthcoming. :)

How can a city the size of Vancouver not attract enough people?  I would be interested in attending a whole weekend.
Some Mustachians don't want to spend the money. Some don't have the available time. Some don't think it sounds fun. Etc. Etc.

The size of the city isn't necessarily the only factor. There are some large cities without huge Mustachian contingents, and some small with a huge group.

Thus checking interest here before we start the ball rolling and put deposit money down on a location. :)

Not sure cause I paid in USD, but I believe it was between 250 and 300 CAD. It was 3 days, 2 nights, food included. So about 133 CAD/night for room and board.

This event would likely be in a similar range (IDK how Vancouver compares to Ontario in pricing, but I wouldn't imagine more than +/- 20%) on a per night basis, but would likely be 3 nights.

YES!  I'm planning about a month of travel around the western US post-FIRE in the spring.  To bookend it with CMC-Vancouver and CM-Seattle (provided I can score tickets to both) would be amazing!

Posting to follow.  Vancouver is easier for me to get to than TO, but I have fewer external reasons to make the trip so... Maybe 40% chance?

I think you might be underestimating the West Coast/BC price ARS.  CMC 2017 was well outside the GTA proper, hosted at a not-for-profit (I think) and rural Ontario is cheap.  Nowhere in BC is really cheap anymore.

Heh. I have zero thoughts around a number. I declined to answer about a price except with a "to be determined" and then was pressed to come up with something anyways, so I made something up. You're likely right.  We'll see.  :)

Bottom line is: We're all Mustachian, and don't want to spend more than necessary. The event will be run as a non-profit event, e.g. no one will make money on running it. We will attempt to do so as cheaply as possible.  :)

Venues? All kinds...Bard and Banker has a private room / patio that can be reserved.

Victoria would probably be the most expensive place second to Tofino that I could think of on Vancouver Island.
Really dig into costs.

Sensible location a short drive or circle from the Nanaimo region. Two Ferries arrive here daily, one from North Vancouver (highway to Whistler) and one from South Vancouver very close to Washington border. There is also an airport here that has flights daily from the major terminals and even a daily Seattle service. (Cassidy/Nanaimo airport)

Not sure if you've chosen a location yet, but have you considered a boat-access place? They seem to be cheaper, and include the boat ride to get there, which could be a fun and scenic activity in and of itself. We were discussing the idea on the Vancouver Mustachians Facebook page, and found a couple of options that looked interesting:

Interested!

I know you are narrowing down on vancouver island, but if you want a lead on a catered year-round retreat / chalet center, in Maple Ridge, Vancouver, let me know.   (I also have a contact at the group ski chalet in Mt. Seymour Park, North vancouver, for a $10 per person/ night accommodation, sleeps 60, but you arrange your own food, which is a bit rustic with electricity and a kitchen, but no showers).

I should have specified that I am interested in attending.

Question:  is the date (April 27 - 30) set in stone?  I would be more likely to attend if it were after that weekend, but that's just me.

Yes! Interested!!

I think Mt Seymour would be the perfect venue! Surrounded by beautiful nature and outdoor recreation opportunities (hiking, mountain biking), plus you're still close to the city so it's not expensive to get to (unlike taking ferries to Vancouver Island). You can even get most of the way there by public transit. It also sounds like the right price too. Since it's so close to the city, maybe you could even get catering delivered? Seymour gets my vote!

Seymour Park, North vancouver, for a $10 per person/ night accommodation, sleeps 60, but you arrange your own food, which is a bit rustic with electricity and a kitchen, but no showers).

OK, I feel kinda dumb asking but the The Google is not giving me a definitive answer, What do "PTF" and "P2F" stand for?

Also, I am theoretically interested in joining depending on dates/cost/ease of travel vs. the Colorado one. I'm in Montana. I would lean toward this one if someone was willing and able to share a ride from the Seattle area since I can fly cheap there (but not to Vancouver).

PTF.  I would love to attend one of these things soon, however I think it will have to come in the summertime.  I'm a teacher.

Hello,

This finally got me to register for the forums here so congratulations. I'm still trying to understand how it was decided to plan a Vancouver area camping event in April? We still have snow on the trails in June and sometimes July. But if it's all inside cabins or something it should be fine. I'm the founder of the Money Mustache Meetup for Vancouver and if it looks like this is going to happen I'm happy to do what I can to help promote things. Stephanie is an organizer for the Meetup who has been more involved on these forums previously so she is certainly someone to work with as well.

I would invite anyone who is interested in discussing this with more of the local people to join our Facebook group and start a discussion on this camp out to help gauge interest. https://www.facebook.com/groups/627244907391836/
It looks like the one planned in Bellingham has currently gained a bit more traction but there's no reason one on the North side of the 49th parallel couldn't be great too. I'm just a bit concerned about how plans are coming along with these dates getting so close.

-Luke

I just looked at the planned event for Toronto and it appears they have some interesting talks/discussions planned. I think we could have some good ones in Vancouver too. I know a guy who is an evangelical stoic who could put on a talk about creating stoic joy and overcoming suffering. We could have a discussion about cross-border investing, taxes, and finance. I'd be interested in talking about alternative investments like real estate development, hard money lending, house hacking, and speculation.

There will be cabins and beds.

So far none of the CMs involve actual camping. :)
