Phoenix Chapter of Early Retirement Forum

I've truly enjoyed meeting the two people I have so far from this board. I think we need to start regional chapters to get together for coffee. Hey Califdreamer, I think you are just a few minutes away from me!
I know you're out there Valley of the Sun Early Retirees. Post here now if you would be interested and I will use the board's PM system to try to organize the first chapter meeting of the Phoenix Chapter of the Early Retirement Forum.

I am in Phoenix and might consider it as long as no MLM sales people show up.

Re: Phoenix Chapter of Early Retirement Forum

I thought "phoenix chapter" meant failed retirements going back on track, rising from the ashes, so to speak.

Anyway, have fun meeting, Phoenix Chapter!

There is still time to get in on the first Valley of The Sun Chapter of the Early Retirement Forum. At least 4 of us will be meeting this Saturday at 10:00 AM in Mesa. PM me if you are interested and I'll send you the specifics.

Re: Phoenix Chapter of Early Retirement Forum

We had fun. Thanks to bssc for the donuts.

In the true spirit of retirement, nothing of significance was accomplished and I really couldn't tell you what we did all morning. We did establish that niether crazie connie nor sgeeeee has any plans to run for political office in the forseable future despite the attractive benefits of Senators and Congressmen. Although specific reasons for their decision to withdraw before even entering the race were not discussed, there was some indication that shady pasts might be involved.

Retirement discussions in virtual space are nice, but it was a pleasure to see some of the board characters in person.

Real donuts beat virtual donuts 98% of the time. The other 2% have coconut on it.

Re: Phoenix Chapter of Early Retirement Forum

All donuts are ok... But those shared with a new friend are excellent! Two donuts and 3 new friends... EXCELLENT

Only thing that could have made this mornings visit better would have been if Mrs Sgeeeeeeeee had been able to participate.

I am looking forward to more Phoenix Chapter FIRE meetings!

And I hope that it works out, that I might be able to participate in one as well, if the stars align correctly. Do they have bagles at the the donut place as well. Trying to keep sugar intake lower as it gets me too wound up and I say and do things that I regret later.

If they do not have bagels we can meet somewhere else! It is not the food rather the company that counts.

Bagels work for us too. There must be a bagel place somewhere central, as long as we don't have to pay for parking.

Re: Phoenix Chapter of Early Retirement Forum

I better start now to find that bagel place. The donut shop was plan E after plans A thorugh D didn't work. I was getting worried that the gods of early retirement or the alignment of the stars were against us.

We have until April when Whitestick comes to the valley to identify that bagel place. If we can't find one, we may have to start our own. crazy connie and mrs. bssc both posess superior knowledge about restaurants and cooking. mr. bssc has the kind of diplomatic background that would make him an ideal server. And I could take out the garbage and wash the dishes.

This sounds great! I am seeing a new future for me- after I meet all the excellent people in my neighborhood, I can make a circuit attending chapter meetings around the west. If they will invite me that is.

You are always invited here in the Valley, Ha. We'll hold a special session if you let us know when you want to come.

November is a good time to visit Arizona. I have two sisters in Wisconsin and they tell me about the winters. June to September takes some getting used to.
