Why National Hike with a Geek Day?

Geeks are everywhere. We build rocket ships and find cures for diseases, and we're usually behind a computer or in a lab while we do it. June 20th is an excuse for us to connect with something other than bits or bites.

If you're a friend of a geek, it's the perfect date to think of how miserably little oxygen there is indoors fueling the creativity of your geeky friends.

Today we celebrate National Hike with a Geek Day by taking 30 minutes for a digital detox on the trail or sidewalk, and spend some time reconnecting with the non virtual world.

Take the pledge

I pledge to get some fresh air, and go on a walk or hike outdoors with a geek  for at least 30 minutes on June 20th.

If you include your email, we'll also let you know about geeky digital detox news from time to time. No spam, just fun!
