My wife and I moved small, rural town of 10,000 about a year ago. I've yet to meet a single local geek. Tell me how to meet them!

My wife's job required us to move about a year ago to small, rural town of 10,000 (the entire county has a population of 25,000). Though we've gotten to know some great people through her job, I've yet to meet a single local geek.
My only small town experience was the town where I went to college, but this town is no college town: the town's main industries are timber and a distribution center for a retailer. There are very few young professionals in town. Most young people with the talent or ambition to leave town do so. The nearest "city" of 80,000 is an hour away.
I'm 28. I built my own computer. I (used to) play D&D. I love science fiction. How can I find kindred spirits?
