I missed it last night on the news, but my supervisor told me about it this morning (she met EC at a picnic in August and remembered him). Sounded like it was quite detailed. Great job, EC!!

It was a great segment. Nothing like taking a news camera man &
reporter geocaching. I noticed that they had a bit of trouble keeping
up with Esko. Well presented. Great info was provided from logging
into the site, getting coords, locating caches and explaining the
fun and friendship. Well done, EskoClimber. Wink

I'd think it would be repeated at the 12:00 news.

Great story but the video doesn't work for me. I tried Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Awesome story! I love the whole "Found by EskoClimber" stamp they use. Pretty sweet Exclamation

LOL! Anyone who has had the pleasure of caching with EC can appreciate that!

I did notice that it appeared EC was at work when he was on the computer...unless he has the same type of phone as the city does at home...thought I was the only one that got paid to cache in Duluth Laughing

Wow. Very good piece.

Esko also came across fantastic on camera.

Wow -

I finally found some time to watch the video. What a wonderful job done both by the reporter as well as EskoClimber. A true celebrity!

I thought that EskoClimber did an excellent job on this new segment; maybe we should give him a job as the official MNGCA news media spokesperson.

hmmm...am I the only one that noticed the focus on the GPSr showed the coords for the puzzle cache?

then again, it's Sudoku so I'll solve it on my own for next time I'm in the area, but yea...I had to point it out *grin*

Now I've got to forward the link to my parents so they can see the info since they're in the area and interested.

The clip actually gives away a lot. I'm surprised he used it. I didn't pay attention to what the GPS showed - the cache starts with a puzzle and is then a multi after that. It's not worth skipping any of the parts either - it's an excellent cache (it wasn't a COTM for nothing)!

Great piece.. FSU*Noles and I are planning to do this cache later this month, so this info will definitely come in handy! Wink Plus I just noticed that I copied the numbers out of the sudoku wrong, and my coords were way off...
