Pear Head,
Did the people at KARE-11 give you a projected air date yet? Please be sure to let us all know if and when you find out.

The only thing I've been told up to now (and all I expect) is 'next week some time'. That being said, we all know that it could still be late this week or two or three weeks from now. It's anyone's guess!

I have my tivo programmed.

I also copied the Venture North Piece from Duluth.
Is that free to distribute or is that copyright protected?

I didn't see it myself but my sister called me this afternoon and said she saw a commercial saying that Geocaching will be one of the topics on the KARE 11 morning show tomorrow morning (Saturday) at 8 a.m. Might just be a preview of the Extra piece or the actual Extra piece or...? I don't generally watch KARE 11 news so I don't know how they normally air such things.
Just thought I would pass it on.

The Saturday morning segment will be different from the Extra segment - I was contacted to participate in the Saturday morning thing, but I'm booked this weekend. I asked the person who contacted me if they were part of the same deal, but he told me they weren't. This vocation is getting almost as much press as my other vocation!!!

I just saw the Geocaching bit on the KARE 11 morning show. Eric Perkins interviewed a guy from Gander Mt. hyping Lowrance GPSrs and Geocaching (I didn't recognize him, but that doesn't mean he isn't someone known around here, they didn't give his caching name if he had one). They showed him "find" one and he said Gander Mt would be placing that cache somewhere in Eden Prairie.
They then showed a clip from the Extra piece that will air Monday night. Lots of shots of Gilby...that ham. Razz

They showed a little snip of TheGilby3, and drat19. Must have been from the late night caching episode of Week Night Caching from July 18th

I thought I saw drat, maybe not...was that Gilby with the flashlight in his mouth?

Yeah, Great shot they decided to show for what seemed like FOREVER!

By the way, did anyone else get a kick out of the Gander Mountain cache find that they did? It was pretty cheesy. Walking in tall weeds, and then he just came upon an ammo plastic box sitting in the weeds totally exposed. Obviously it was just a mock find for the cameras, but to an outsider, it must have looked like somewhat of a joke.

My guess is that they will run another promo tonight during their broadcasts for tomorrow nights airing. At least that's what they do for their other Extra pieces.

I am crossing my fingers that they don't make me look dumb and silly, but that might be impossible to stop! Smile

I'm sure there are plenty of people here to point it out for you if they notice anything. Smile

How the heck did *I* end up on the teaser?? I knew I had a shot at some camera time when I was talking to the reporter and he put the camera RIGHT IN MY FACE for a minute or two ("Here Dave, don't feel TOO self-conscious, even though this camera is now RIGHT IN YOUR FACE!"), but I never expected teaser time as well...

Channel 11 has a blurb about tonight's Extra piece on their Web site:

Great photo on there of one of the caches and someone's butt!
