North Jersey Meetup
« on: January 17, 2017, 11:23:32 AM »
All - I am new to MMM but looking forward to finding my tribe here! I would love join an existing meetup or set up a new one in the North Jersey Area. Shout out to all people from Essex County/Hudson County/Passaic etc. Please let me know thoughts to help guide me to the right meetup group if it already exists.
Thanks!

All - It seems like there might not be a north jersey meetup.
would folks be interested in such a meet up?
will be happy to organize if we have a core interested group.

I'm game. Do PM me. I don't visit the forums as often as I might. You aren't Lithuanian are you? If you were, your name translates into "Tabby."

Dear Both - @thestoicstudent and @smoghat - any thoughts on how to get some critical mass for a meetup.
would be great to have a core group of say 8 to 10 people to start with who want to meet similar minded folks in north NJ (Essex/Hudson).
Have you guys connected with North NJ'ians previously on these forums who we should reach out to.

It's been a long time since any replies were posted on this thread, but if there's still interest in a north NJ meetup, here's another vote for it.  I'm in Morris County, but any one of the northern counties would be good for me.  Sending a PM would probably be best since I don't check in with this forum that often.

Sure, why not?  I'm in Denville (Morris), but also venture frequently to Bergen, Passaic, and Somereset counties.

I find it funny that this is finally catching on.  I got into mustachery ~2013 and after about a year or two of trying to save money while living some sort of normal life in NJ grew into a Mustiachian despair.  Just like everyone else in NJ I've since moved into the "good equity and 401k, but near 0 cash on hand" category after purchasing a house money pit then having a kid, causing the 2nd income stream (spouse) to disappear.

But, Yeah!  more people that won't laugh at you when you mention a 8k+ property tax!

Great !! So far we have 4 people who are from the neighboring localities. I had an offline conversation with another interested member - who goes by the handle"cooking" and is also interested  to meet with

Was wondering whether April 7th afternoon is a good time for folks to have the first meetup.

Passaic County heer, April 7th is perfectly fine for me as of today. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Also feel free to invite me to participate in whatever other outside communication methods you folks are currently using.

there is a North Jersey Choose FI local group on facebook, and central jersey. We had our first meet up a month or 2 ago and it went well. We plan on having more as the weather gets nicer, maybe a hike or picnic. Feel free to join there if you're interested

Have fun the 7th! Wish i was free.
