Ease back into traveling with a road trip
Gas prices are the lowest in decades. What does that mean to a nerd? Road Trip! What better way to ease back into travel after the order has been lifted than driving down a nearly deserted highway, Supernatural style.
Comic-cons on YouTube and Zoom watch parties are the new norm
Fans of all things nerdy suddenly have a myriad number of options when it comes to pop culture events—Comic-cons, watch parties, trivia, event “day” or “weekends. Virtual, viral, digital, online, streaming – different descriptors or platforms, but it is all still fandom. It is a dizzying array to choose from.
Virtual nerd races you can do virtually anywhere
What is a virtual race? It is an actual event that you participate in, complete the distance and achieve a medal. What makes it virtual? You choose the time and place; it doesn’t have the structure or pressure of a timed race. It is not run in a virtual reality experience or a game, it is real sweat and real achievement.
“Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cakehole.” – Dean Winchester
Playlists enhance your trip experience and heighten the anticipation, but most importantly playlists keep the driver engaged. Long drives can cause zone-outs, and that’s not good. Therefore, the driver is the one who needs to pick the music (thanks, Dean) or at least control the playing of it. It is simply active versus passive.
