National Hike with a Geek Day back story

Doesn’t everyone love a geek? We expect them to make our rocket ships and find cures for diseases, but we don’t often give them what they possibly need most… an excuse to get out from behind the computer or the lab, and into mother nature. A chance to connect with something other than bits or bites. June 20th is the summer solstice, and the perfect date to think of how miserably little oxygen there is indoors fueling the creativity of geeks around the world. Today, June 20th, we take our geeky friends outdoors for national Hike with a Geek Day, and give them some fresh air to fuel their rocket-ship-building curiosity and creativity.


How to spot a geek to take on a hike?
