People who are pursuing Frugal yet Badass Lives of Leisure tend to be pretty fun to hang around with. I learned this shortly after starting this blog, and since then I have cashed in on many opportunities to meet up with fellow Mustachians.
This is another one of those, but a pretty ambitious one. Three long-term members of our gang have taken it upon themselves to arrange an all-weekend meetup at a retro (but beautiful) camp in the Pacific Northwest – roughly between Tacoma, WA and Mt. Ranier. They were kind enough to invite me and the eminently cool writer J.D. Roth to join, and of course we both said yes.
More than just a meetup, it is a fully planned deal with 50 spaces (20 were filled before publishing this article) where the food and accommodation is included. And since it is planned by true Mustachians, it is a non-profit event, only $200 for the whole thing, and you can get there from Seattle/Tacoma on under a gallon of gas in a good car (or a few bowls of oats on your bike). Quite a nice contrast from the decadence of those Ecuador trips.
This should be a fun but not overly formal and scheduled event. For my part, I hope to hang around, do some hiking and lake activities, stay up late and respectfully break various rules, and talk with you about interesting things.. but not deliver any sort of prepared presentation.
The dates are from Friday, May 30 until Sunday, June 1st.
I’ve taken down the link to the ticket page since they are all spoken for. Many thanks to hosts Kristin, Joe and Emma for doing all of the hard work! We now return to our regularly scheduled programming..
The event has come and gone, but the memories will be around for good. What an amazing experience! What a group of readers this blog has. Here is a little summary from Joe on the event, with a picture of the gang.
