Who would you most like to meet and why?

There are a number of interesting posters on this board, some very different than others. I could make a list.

Same here.

But you did meet someone over the Internet, and eventually moved to be next door to him.

Well, that was an internet dating website, just for that purpose - - not a financial/retirement website...

And also that was 19 years ago!

We actually do meet some folks in person for our SW FLA get together. It is a great experience.

Iíve met a number of folks from this site both in a group setting and 1 on 1, and all meetings have been very positive experiences. My wife and I even met up with one member who was on Vancouver Island on vacation from the US at the same time as we were there.

If you ever met me in my home I would still be in my pajamas. If outside it would my usual attire of flip flops, shorts and a T shirt.

I've met four of you during my travels, and thoroughly enjoyed each encounter.

I would say RobbieB, but I'm afraid I'd have to wait in line.

One of the fun things about Bogleheads is going to the annual reunion and meeting some of the people that you interact with online and who share common interests.

As I don't like to travel, I wouldn't mind meeting some of the local folks from NYC and LI, near where I live (LI).

I've met two different posters and their families and I'm so glad I did. I hope to meet up again some day.

It would be fun to meet a number of people from this board, sans name tags, then try to match each person to their screen name.

I have thought long and hard; I have put the question under scrutiny and analysis; I have submitted the possibilities to my worry beads.

Hands down, without a doubt - Gumby
