Hey everyone!

I have just moved to Seattle area from Prague. I am reading MMM for over a year already and would love to meet up with some like minded people. The link to the Facebook event doesn't work for me. I get an error message that the content is not available right now. Is there any fb group to join?


Try joining Washington Mustachians first.

Just asked to join. Thanks!

What about those of us who refuse facebook?  Are we just out in the cold?

In capitalist United States, Facebook refuses you.

That said, GS has kindly promised to cross-post all event announcements to this thread.

Capitalistic swine, indeed. Yes, I do my best to keep things cross-posted :) There's not much you miss on facebook. An occasional post here and there; so far no other meetups except the ones that I've been organizing (makes my job of cross posting is pretty easy)

Speaking of meetups (next one is tomorrow if you haven't heard: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/meetups-and-social-events/seattle-area-meet-up/msg1939548/#msg1939548),

1) I won't be able to make the meetup tomorrow (sucks, but I hope everyone else that goes has fun)
2) We won't be able to use CRD Design Build as a fallback this time in case of rain. I have been assured, however, that there is a lovely gazebo in Wallingford park that can act as a shelter in case the weather turns nasty.

Hello Seattleites!  Gray Matter and 94 will be in Seattle next week and are available for a casual meet-up on Friday evening (May 18) if anyone is interested. 

We're staying in the Belltown area and have no knowledge of good meet-up spots, but are willing to travel by foot or public transportation is someone has a recommendation.

Hello!

We wouldn't mind hanging out with some fellow mustachians this Friday. If the weather is nice, I'd like to suggest Myrtle Edwards park. I think the three rocks could make a good meeting spot.

To make us easier to recognize, there's two of us: a 5' asian girl and a 6'1" white guy with long curly hair.

Juanita Beach Park could be nice if you want to stay on this side of Lake Washington. :)

For anyone interested in a casual meet-up tomorrow, Friday, May 18 in Seattle, 94 and I will be at Olympic Sculpture Park at 6 pm.  We'll be standing conspicuously by the big white head (Echo statue) where Broadstreet meets Alaskan Way.  From there, we can decide if we want to take a walk in Myrtle Edwards Park or go for a beer or...? 

If we change locations, we'll post an update here.

Hope to see you (someone!  anyone!) there.

It was fantastic meeting @bandk last night!  Such an interesting couple--living the dream mustachian life in Seattle!  I sure hope you start a journal and share your story with all of us as you head toward FIRE!  :-)

Yeah, it was really awesome to meet you guys too! Thanks for sharing all the cool stories and photos of Guantanamo Bay, your sweet camper, etc!

Wish I could have made it, but 6 is too close to Annabelle's bedtime (of 6:45) when the place was 30min away (we'd have had to be there from 6-6:15, then leave).

5pm (or earlier, like afternoon) tends to work better for us.

How long are you two in town for?

Hello Everyone! I'm Gwen, co-host of Fire Drill Podcast. My awesome co-host J and I were going to attend the usual Thursday-before-Camp Mustache-meetup with Mr. Money Mustache, but he won't be here until Friday this year! :( So, J and I are taking up the mantle and hosting a meetup Thursday, May 24th in Gas Works Park at 730 pm. We'll be on top of the big hill next to the big metal thingies. If it gets weathery or dark, we'll relocate to a nearby brewery (or something). Hope to see a few Mustachians out there!

GM and I both left Seattle yesterday.  :(

I will be back up there in August as I drive up to Canada, so I would like to try to see some Seattle peeps again at that point.  Don't know where you'll be at that time, Rebel.  If I don't see you then, looks like I will see you at CM*TO in September!

D'oh! Sorry I missed you. :)

We'll be in Quebec City July - September. But looking forward to seeing you again at CM*TO!
