Figured 7/14 was a bit of a long shot :) How about we plan on 7/21 in case anyone else is able to join? @Random Hangers @PseudoStache that's great you'll be around!

Happy Friday!

Sounds like we might have 4 for the Sunday meetup. I'll try to get there first, but if not feel free to grab a table, and hope the pig can make it too!

I have been working toward FI for some time and finally got onto this site. I wish I would have discovered this years ago. It would be great to meet some people with similar goal.

I will try to make the meet tomorrow. I have a potential buyer for my Goldwing tomorrow, but I will try to make it.

Hopefully the meet went well.

I was unable to make it, but I sold my motorcycle.  :-)

I will keep an eye out for the next meet.

Congrats on the sale! 

Thanks to Roots for a really tasty recommendation - I'll definitely be back!

Always great to catch up.

Some of the things we discussed:
  • Thoughts on the Playing with Fire movie
  • Credit Card churning thought Kiva
  • Mortgage Recasts
  • Energy Savings: Solar Panels/HVAC/Thermostats
  • Potential RV life

I know we don't have much structure to when these lunch meetups happen.... but any thoughts on picking a "regular" monthly date?

Perhaps the third Sunday of every month at noon....  Locations TBD - but likely a Downtown/Winter Park/Off I-4 Centralized spot?

Don't forget rental properties, tiny houses, FinCon, and travel hacking! Good stuff :)

A more regular meet up sounds good.

Third Sunday is Cool.  I live in Titusville, so anywhere east of I4 is preferred. Do you guys ever develop a list of topics for discussion prior to the meetup?

Alas, I won't be able to make the August meetup but love that we have the meetups on the calendar through the rest of the year. Great idea!

Thanks @Roots&Wings!

Did you already check out Sakari?

If this one doesn't happen in August, we can keep the same venue for September.

Sakari works for Sept too! Haven't been there.

@lexde  I'll leave the restaurant recommendations to others, but unsure if there might be some free local events (like an evening art stroll) in your part of town that often have free food too. Good luck!

I plan to try to make it this time, if it's still a go. I haven't had Sushi in a while.

Anyone else in for some sushi this weekend?  They seem to have some reasonable lunch specials.

Thanks to those who joined us this past Sunday.

The Sakari Bento boxes offered some good sized portions for a good value.

Good discussion around :
- An attendee pulling the FIRE plug in T-Minus 6 months.  Looking forward to living vicariously!
- Credit Card hacking as not only a way save money/earn rewards - but also as a way to limit withdrawals (ie. ACA thresholds)
- What type of careers gravitate towards FIRE
- Intentional spending/cost reduction

Mark your calendars for SEPTEMBER 15th at 12:00 PM.
Open to restaurant suggestions at this point.
