The 15 Geekiest Vacations - #5: The Pennsic War
Considered by one member to be the biggest conglomeration of engineers, programmers and hackers outside Comdex, the Pennsic Wars are an annual event between the East and Middle Kingdoms of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a group of people who believe that life began in the middle ages. Each year, they get together at the Kingdom of ??Ãthelmearc at Coopers' Lake Campground, dress up in armor and bash each other about with padded swords. Pennsic War 36 will be July 27 to Aug. 12, so you're going to want to get your battlefield registration in ASAP.
Geeks need a break too, and from the National Computer Museum to a Star Trek bar in Vegas to Space Camp and Geek Cruises, the tech obsessed have plenty of geeky vacation options. Now if they could only learn how to relax.
