Topic: Local TV Station Came By Today

Posted by emrldjetta on July 08 2001,7:05 pmA local TV station came to my house today, WKBN, and Shana and I took them out to a local cache. It went really well so I don't think they will make us seem too foolish on TV. They are showing the piece on the 10 o'clock news tonight. We were out about two hours and they said they would produce a 1.5 minute segment out of that. Sure is a lot of work for such a short piece of finished work. Will let you know how it looks on TV after it is aired........Kyle

Posted by emrldjetta on July 10 2001,1:36 pmWell we didn't look too foolish. I'll try to get a guy at work take the analog tape and convert it to digital on a CD. Warning, they only mention geocaching.com not navicache.com, sorry Quinn.8)
