Geeks in June
In the beginning of June we were in between rallies. We took advantage of a week’s free time to do some sightseeing – the Lincoln Presidential museum in Springfield, Illinois; a horse show at the fairgrounds where we were staying, and a bike ride from our campground in Indiana Dunes National seashore. Then it was on to the next rally, Glamarama in Allegan, Michican. Then came the weird part … we left our Roadtrek in Michigan and flew home to go on vacation!
Right now we are in the Cayman Islands getting ready to board theCayman Aggressor dive boat for a week of scuba diving to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. So, don’t expect to hear from us until July 8!
By the way, our pictures, Blogs, Web Albums, maps, and videos are all examples of what we teach. You can learn how to plan, preserve, and share your travels (or your life.) It makes the experience that much more enjoyable to get creative and share pictures, maps, stories, and movies with friends and family. Check out our Learning Library of Tutorial Videos, just go to GeeksOnTour.com and click the menu for Tutorials. There are plenty of free videos in addition to our members-only content to whet your appetite for learning.

Traveling across time zones can be so confusing when you need to call someone, or get to an online meeting at the right time. After 14 years of RVing, you’d think I’d have it figured out. That’s where the real problems start … when I think I have it figured out! Invariably, I adjust my time in the wrong direction. Now I let my smartphone tell me what to do!
Our Chromebooks are the only computers we take on vacation. Here you see Jim using his Chromebook for our Facebook Live session from our hotel in Grand Cayman.
Why take computers at all? Well, our business is our website. We are able to take more vacations because we can operate our business from anywhere. Don’t worry, they don’t go underwater with us. We are truly on vacation when we’re scuba diving.
This article discusses the 2 Chromebooks we brought and how we’ve probably bought our last Windows computers ever.
