Hacking and hiking at the Linux Bier Wanderung 2006


Article from Issue 72/2006

Geeks don’t bite, but insects and spiders do in the Aukstaitija (Highlands) National Park, site of this year’s Linux Beer Hike (aka, Linux Bier Wanderung).

From the 13th to 20th of August, around 50 geeks from all over the world met in the tiny village of Paluse to hack, listen to talks, explore the countryside, and enjoy the local food and beer. The eighth annual Linux Bier Wanderung went East again, this year to Lithuania’s “Lake District” [1]. Surrounded by seven lakes and scenic forests, Paluse offers lots of opportunities for outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountainbiking, canoing, rowing, and fishing. The hall on the shore of Lake Luse was an ideal location for campfires and barbecues at the beach.
