IDAHO FALLS, Idaho--What should I do in Boise?
I'm on my Road Trip 2009 project, and am headed toward the Idaho capital. But the plan I had in place for Boise this Thursday looks like it's falling through, and I'm hoping you can help me figure out an alternative.
So far on Road Trip 2009, I've written stories and put together photo galleries about a wide variety of topics, including green building; preparing for a post peak-oil world; starting out at the Air Force Academy; the current state of Cheyenne Mountain; the incredible canyons, arches, and buttes of southeastern Utah (and northeastern Arizona); Army defenses against chemical and biological weapons; incredible earthworks; giant Air Force bombing ranges; and the building of the next generation of NASA rockets.
That should give you a sense of the breadth of things I look for in putting together Road Trip, and what would work for me in, or near, Boise.
If you have a suggestion for something I can do in the area that will work for this Thursday and that no one else has mentioned first, I'd be happy to reward you with a choice of a DVD set or a video game or two. But regardless of the opportunity for prizes, I'm hoping you might have an idea or two for me based on your desire to see something really cool get a little bit of exposure.
Please let me know as soon as you can if you have an idea to share. You can e-mail me at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com. Or you can send it to me via Twitter or Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you.
For the next several weeks, Geek Gestalt will be on Road Trip 2009. After driving more than 12,000 miles in the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast over the last three years, I'll be writing about and photographing the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, and Colorado. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. And in the meantime, join the Road Trip 2009 Facebook page and follow my Twitter feed.
