We had a great day yesterday. Our friends Jim and Chris Guld, better known as the Geeks on Tour, spent last week presenting some of their great techno seminars at the Orlando Thousand Trails Preserve and decided to drive up and see us.
It seems like we have known Jim and Chris forever, and we have crossed paths over and over in our RV travels and working the RV rally circuit. It’s been close to a year since the last time we saw them, but as it always is with good friends, time apart means nothing. We had a wonderful time reminiscing, showing them our new house, and catching up on events in all our lives in the past few months.
If you have never been to one of the Geeks’ seminars, you don’t know what you’re missing. If it has anything to do with computers, digital cameras, smart phones, or any other kind of techno toy, they wrote the book on it.
No, seriously. Among their many other activities, which includes teaching classes all over the country, blogging, podcasting, putting out a newsletter, and sharing their vast knowledge on all things technical, they recently published their first book, Google Photos. We’ve got a copy and it’s amazing how much information they crammed into it.
And because they are always willing to share their knowledge, they gave Miss Terry, me, and our friend Jim Lewis a mini-seminar on Google Photos, the benefits of storing photographs on the cloud, and all kinds of other valuable information.
We all went to lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants, the SeaShack in New Smyrna Beach. As always, the food was excellent, and the company was even better. Jim is neither an RVer nor a techno-head, but he still had a good time, and learned some things about his new smart phone in the process.
Here’s a picture of the five of us at lunch. That’s Jim Lewis in the left front, then Terry, and me, and Chris is in the right rear, with Jim Guld in the right front. Now that’s a crowd of hooligans you don’t want showing up on your doorstep late some night!
Back at our house after lunch, we visited some more, and Chris gave me my own official Geeks on Tour baseball cap. How cool is that?
If you’re going to be at the Escapees Escapade rally in Tucson, Arizona in March, be sure to sit in on some of their seminars. I promise you that you are going to have fun and learn a lot at the same time. Thanks for coming to see us, Jim and Chris. It was a real treat!
