Turn your TV to channel 21 in Duluth, turn back time to 9:37pm.

I'm not aware of their stuff being posted online. Maybe someone else is...

I saw it on the TV when it aired.

THAT was a great geocaching segment! Way to go Esko. Thanks for
your efforts and continued enthusiasm. I was wishing you would have
been locating the "Oh Ship!" cache. I'm stuck on that one. Wink

Well done!

Besides the copyright issues and the fact that I don't own a TiVo...yup. Very Happy

Hehe, he was originally finding my Coffee Creek Cache, but he found it too fast for the cameras to get it, he said Laughing

At least now I know where Ore Dock Overlook is! Cool
Great job on the description of Geocaching too. Tupperware in the woods filled with junk!

I apologize for using Ore Dock Overlook without the cache owner's permission but I needed a spot to give them a backdrop of the city.

I packed in the tripod for them and I still had to wait for them to catch up.

I can't seem to find a link to the story.

Who did the story? I know a sports reporter from Fox 21. A woman named Jenny. Maybe I can get it form her.

Of course I won't go into the fact that most professional broadcast cameras weigh anywhere between 25-40 pounds, depending on what "accessories" are on it, and that doesn't include the tripod or run bag that has spare batteries, microphones etc. that we all carry with us as well. Plus trying to get different shots along the way to tell the story... there's a lot more to the magic of teevee than most people will ever realize.

You ever hiked with Esko? He could have been carrying *all* of their gear and still would have had to wait.

I do have it recorded, maybe I'll make it into a Travel Bug DVD...

I have contact info for getting a digital copy of the segment. I talked to my nephew's gf, Jenny, and she said we could get it for $25. It is $50 for non-staff to get copies. Lemme know if anyone wants the info.
