Time to get out into the server room with the big, blue ceiling!
Spring is springing in my part of the world. Flowers are in bloom and the weather is quite mellow and pleasant. And, of course, I spend most of my week trapped in a server room. But, I don’t want to take a lot of time off to go do things, so that means I’m stuck doing things on the weekend. That doesn’t give me a ton of options, but there are always day trips. I live in Houston, so there are all kinds of things to do, but, frankly, I’m not all that into most mainstream venues. I mean, sports bars are okay, but I’m not really into sports. And, well, once you’ve seen most regular museums, you’ve pretty much seen them all. So, what’s a professional geek to do on his time off?
That’s where I’m hoping Nerdy Day Trips will help.
So far, there aren’t a lot of trips described for the Houston area yet, but there are more and more getting added all the time. Oh, they hit the biggies, like NASA and the Battleship Texas, but they also have the National Museum of Funeral History and the Alkek Velodrome, among others. And, yes, I’ll admit, since most of my “extra” income goes to camera gear these days, I’m mostly thinking of photo opportunities, so the stranger the better, as far as I’m concerned.
So, while the weather is nice, go and take advantage of these strange opportunities. And, if there are any that you know of which aren’t on the map, especially in the Houston area, please, add them in!
And,hey, try to get out into the world this weekend and away from the computer for a bit, okay?
You’ll thank me later!
