Geeks in July
The whole month of July we were home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The photo is of us going kayak diving in the reef off of Fort Lauderdale beach. And, here’s a video of a wreck dive we also made this month. See more photos in ourJuly Photo Album and stories in our personal blog.
By the way, our pictures, Blogs, Photo Albums, maps, and videos are all examples of what we teach. You can learn how to plan, navigate, and remember your life’s events. 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.
Here’s our speaking request form if you’d like to have us speak to your group. We’re in Fort Lauderdale until August 12 or so.
If you are a member, ask a question! Go to GeeksOnTour.com then click the Q&A menu. Make sure you are logged in (there’s a form on the Q&A page), select a category (Photos, Maps, Blogs, Other) then click Add Topic. When finished scroll down to Submit Topic.
