Geocaching on Kiwi TV!

Post by Papa Bear_Left » 09 February 06 9:22 pm

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)

Appears maccamob must have a bad case of GAS :)

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: :!: :)
