Post Geocaching on Kiwi TV!
Quite a good segment on caching, featuring a few Christchurch cachers (including NZ's 'version of Maccamob', the Sallies) was on NZ TV tonight.

You can see it on the TVNZ site or, if that's not working, I've put a copy of it here.

Yeah!

I like the idea of being known as people that "get up early and do perculiar things" 8)

Would've said Maccamob had Gadget Acquisition Syndrome rather than Geocaching Addiction Syndrome, but they both work :wink: <P>
Very strange hearing a Kiwi accent again after living over here for so long!

That was MBL's reaction, too, even though she is a Kiwi (but an Aussie for years) and we only left there a year ago! When we moved to Christchurch in '03, her first reaction to hearing a couple of strong local accents was to vow to never sound like that!

I liked the intro bloke saying "cash" to begin with (probably based on someone checking a dictionary) but changing to the Antipodean "caysh" after hearing the report.

I've seen logs by Grandalf, I can see why he chose that nick now.

I was trying to do something at work today (funny enough not work related) and asked one of the guys for help.

He wanted to see an example of the problem I was having (on my website) so I showed him and he asked what geocaching was all about.

So I showed him the video.

He backed away, quite slowly, after it was finished.

I suppose that's better than running away, screaming :roll: :!: :)
