156. The Perks of IRL Gatherings: Our experience at CAMPFI
Michelle and I go to a retreat for people who love financial independence
One silver lining of COVID is that it gave me a new appreciation for in-person gatherings. As much as online meetings can help connect when we cannot meet in person, there is nothing that compares to IRL meetings.
Last weekend, Michelle and I attended CAMP FI in Florida. There were 80+ FI/RE lovers present at a summer-camp style venue with speakers, break-out sessions, outdoor activities- kayaking, yoga, archery, karaoke and lots of time to have deep intimate conversations.
Michelle and I found five unique benefits to this type of IRL meeting with like-minded people:
Meeting real-life people rather than listening to internet personas
Deepen your interest in FI
